HOLISTIC APPROACH: This site is dedicated to promoting a holistic view of the Earth and the cosmos. This includes not only all life forms and systems on Earth, but
also the non-teresstrial life that exists throughout the cosmos. Developing a holistic view takes into account that the parts of any whole cannot exist and cannot be
understood except in their relation to the whole. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts, as reflected in holistic medicine that attempts to treat both the mind
and the body, or holistic ecology that views humans and the environment a single system. As we move forward, the coming decades will bring unparalleled
challenges with regard to the continuing existence of the human race and all of life on Earth.  We hope you enjoy your visit!

Men in Black
Men in Black (MIB), in American popular culture and in UFO conspiracy theories, are men dressed
in black suits who claim to be government agents who harass or threaten UFO witnesses to keep
them quiet about what they have seen. It is sometimes implied that they may be aliens themselves.
The term is also frequently used to describe mysterious men working for unknown organizations, as
well as to various branches of government allegedly designed to protect secrets or perform other
strange activities. The term is a generic one, used to refer to any unusual, threatening or strangely
behaved individual whose appearance on the scene can be linked in some fashion with a UFO
sighting.

Early reports of Men in Black often described them as men of short stature with swarthy
complexions, as if they were deeply tanned. They are also described as just normal people with
dark suits and any colored skin. Some reported them as Gypsies. Sunglasses, black suits and
black cars have been a feature for the entire period since modern sightings began in 1947, but
according to UFO historian Jerome Clark, "All MIB are not necessarily garbed in dark suits."

Some report that MIB all look alike. Their often mechanical behavior has caused them to be
described by some as being like robots or androids. Their voices are monotone and their faces
emotionless. They speak in a dull monotone voice, like a computer, and are dark-complected with
high cheekbones, thin lips, pointed chin, and eyes that are mildly slanted.

According to the accounts of those reporting encountering them, Men in Black always seem to have
detailed information on the persons they contact, as if the individual had been under surveillance
for a long period of time. They have been described as seeming confused by the nature of
everyday items such as pens, eating utensils or food, as well as using outdated slang, though
accounts on the behavior of Men in Black vary widely.

Accounts indicate that they often claim to be from an agency collecting information on the
unexplained phenomenon their subject has encountered. In other accounts, they seem to be trying
to suppress information by, for instance, trying to convince their subject the phenomenon never
existed. They have been described as behaving in either an exceedingly furtive manner or a
completely outgoing one, with wide grins and disconcerting giggles.

In the UFO research community the Men in Black often claim to be from the U.S. Air Force, CIA or
the FBI. Those who have encountered them say they produce identification, but when verification is
later sought, the people described either do not exist, have been dead for some time, or do exist
but have a different rank. The men in black purpose: to hide and suppress advanced technologies
and information about extraterrestrial activities if any for the sake of national and world security.

They allegedly travel in groups of three, but are sometimes alone. The are usually seen driving
black mint-condition late model luxury cars such as Cadillacs or Lincolns. Their cars often operate
with the headlights off, but ghostly purple or greenish glows illuminate the interior. Unusual insignia
have been seen emblazoned on the doors and the license plates are always unidentifiable or
untraceable. Many have reported seeing these vehicles after a reported UFO sighting, ET
abduction, or crop circle finding. Some people believe the MIB are government agents. Some
people believe that are extraterrestrials. There have been reports of MIBs following people around
in black helicopters.

The first reported occurrence of Men in Black was allegedly Albert K. Bender, the editor of a flying
saucer publication called the Space Review. In the October 1953 issue he placed an
announcement stating that he had come across information that would solve the flying saucer
mystery but could not print it because he was ordered not to. He ended the announcement warning
others in UFO research to be very cautious. He then stopped publication. Later in an interview
Bender stated that three men wearing dark suits had ordered him to stop publishing UFO material,
and that he had complied with the order because he had been "scared to death" of them. He later
published a book called Flying Saucers and the Three Men in Black.

In his book, The UFO Silencers, Timothy Beckley has attempted to provide an overview of
important and representative MIB encounters. According to Beckley, MIB have been with us for
many hundreds of years, speculating that such diverse characters from the history of witchcraft and
folklore as the Elizabethan Black Men, the Native American Black Man and late nineteenth century
reports of malevolent traveling salesmen, might have been manifestations of what we now know as
Men in Black.

The Men in black (often abbreviated to MIB) feature in ufological conspiracy theories and were
most popular in the 1950s with few appearances since. They are said to be mysterious people,
dressed in black, who claim to represent an arm of the state (in America, typically the FBI or the Air
Force). They are said to intimidate UFO witnesses into silence, according to witnesses. They have
been written about by ufologists ever since Albert Bender's 1953 book Flying Saucers and the
Three Men described such a visit, apparently as he was about to discover "the truth" about UFOs.
In the works of John A Keel, the MIB ride black Cadillacs, have bizarre personal habits and
sometimes an "olive-green" complexion. This is sometimes attributed to the possibility that the MIB
are actually mechanical or alien in nature, rather than human. Keel has also suggested that the
paranormal phenomenon responsible for the MIB may also be responsible for older accounts of
encounters with demons or witches. Actual explanations for what the MIB encounters actually were
are few and far between as the phenomenon hasn't received a great deal of skeptical attention,
primarily because the reported encounters with MIB are so few. One possible explanation is that it
was all a hoax, developed as a joke in the 1960s by UFO magazine publisher Gray Barker, author
of such works as They Knew Too Much About Flying Saucers. The hoax explanation is based on a
confession by Barker's collaborator John C. Sherwood in 1998, supposedly prompted by the recent
release of the film Men in Black the previous year.

The paranormal nature of the MIB is now largely forgotten and limited to pop culture references
where they are portrayed quite differently from the original reports of the 1950s 1960s - primarily
they are portrayed as secretive government agents. Films such as Men in Black and The Matrix are
the most prominent examples that feature characters based more on the concept of MIB than the
actual MIB personas reported, although the MIB in the game Deus Ex do have unsettling, robotic
voices.
