Surrounding us in our day-to-day lives are mysteries that to spend our days pondering, would paralyze us from leading productive lives. So we turn away from these thoughts in order to seek out as trouble-free an existence as we can. Yet there are those who have made it their business to explore and expose these mysteries, to remind us of what we already know on some deep subconscious level: that things are rarely what they seem on the surface.
Bill Cooper was such a man. Cooper’s commitment to exposing the truth as he saw it, with the information he had at the time, is nothing short of inspiring. Very few of us would go to the lengths Cooper did in order to inform and educate what he knew would always be only a small portion of the population.
The type of material Cooper spent his life exposing is the kind of thing we would prefer to consider as existing only in fictional literary works and science fiction movies. For to even ponder that such ideas can exist in “reality” can be extremely disturbing. Yet Cooper, through meticulous research, fact checking and of course his own experiences in Naval Intelligence, reminded us that these things do indeed take place in reality.
He warned us that the science fiction we so eagerly digest is more truthful than we would ever care to consider.
