Assembling this book was the easy part – the hard part was writing the conclusion. Not only is We Are the Disclosure a goldmine of personal experiences and perspectives, but it is structured to allow easy comparison between them. This offers us two layers of analysis, which then triggers another stage of reflection. In addition, readers will be comparing their own experiences and evolving conclusions, whether consciously or otherwise. And these internal dynamics will continue developing until you find your reality has shifted from its starting point, perhaps markedly so. Having gone through this for the last 18 months, while working on both Meet the Hybrids and We Are the Disclosure, I’ve found that my conclusions are in a constant state of flux. So, after 14 weeks of attempting to analyze and summarize the learnings from Disclosure, one of the main conclusions I reached is that my definition of ‘conclusion’ has changed.
In our culture we often navigate an increasingly complex world through reliance on external expertise. But it has become clear to me that in this field the term ‘expert’ has little meaning, as every aspect of it is in some way opaque, and contested. All physical ‘evidence’ tends to get trapped in a loop, being accepted by some, rejected by others. Experiencer testimony is even more controversial. So how do we determine what we will accept? It seems almost every aspect of this subject compels us to look inward for guidance and understanding. Information either resonates with us or it does not. Tuning into this process helps develop our discernment, and teaches us more about ourselves. That is the most important expertise: the knowledge of our own nature. This is the deepest dive we will ever take, and the most rewarding.
Whether reflecting on our experiences or those of other people, this opens us up in a powerful, transformative way and accelerates our natural process of evolution. Yet it is still just our perspective, and we can only offer our humble, temporary opinion on the subject, making clear that it is a product of both our knowledge and our ignorance. My definition of ‘conclusion’ is therefore: a momentary sense of what is and what may be.
If we consider what we’ve learned in our personal journeys so far, we can see that there are few positions that last a lifetime. In The Science Delusion, Rupert Sheldrake talks about the inconstancy of the so-called constants, and the fact that this is all but ignored by the scientific establishment. The only true constant seems to be change, and this applies to every aspect of ourselves. Yet many people find an understanding, or an entire framework of understanding, and hold on to it as hard as they can. And in many ways this world suffers from too much certainty. People kill or die each day due to too much belief.
But while it is important to most of us that our core reality remain undisturbed, there will be times when each of us must adapt to a change of circumstances. This may be moderate and agreeable, or severe and terrifying. When discussing Disclosure, many use the analogy of a tornado hitting our home. Everything material which we held dear just turned to matchwood and got blown halfway across the state. The same can come through impacts on our health, or the end of a relationship. What we thought we had, or knew, just fell apart. It’s time to reevaluate.
The tornado analogy also represents the framework idea. Pursuing this subject, as broad and deep as it is, will destroy one framework after another as we endeavor to encapsulate and comprehend it. And, having compared dozens of different frameworks in this field, it is apparent that while there may be consensus on many things, each person tells a story of the development of their viewpoints over time, based on new experiences and information. All of this has had the effect of causing me to treat all information and experience as just that. It is no more a ‘true’ reflection of reality than anything else, and can only be filed along with the rest. A general picture naturally emerges, but it is just that. This field defies the scientific method in that it is rarely testable, and almost never repeatable – certainly at will. Therefore, we can only arrange the pieces in a way that makes sense at any given time.
So what then does something so at odds with our culture offer us? That is a huge question. My sense today is that individually it offers an expanded view of every facet of existence, including our own nature and abilities. I communicate with and observe thousands of people who are involved in this field in a wide variety of ways. We are all engaged in a personal unfolding which enriches ourselves and one another, even if that is through a difficult conflict of opinion.
Collectively, this subject places the human journey in a wider context, and it shows us more of who and what we are as a species. No matter how humanity was created or why, it seems we still have the capacity to choose, in every moment, which path we take, and whether we act for ourselves primarily, or for the good of others. Part of the awakening is to recognize our agency, and to actively create the world we wish to live in. The positive personal transformation that commonly results from contact experiences is perhaps the most important headline of the whole subject: this is changing us for the better. And little could be more important to life on Earth today than more humans becoming empowered agents of positive change. If more people concluded that, however briefly and no matter what the catalyst may be, the world would be a better place.
Western science has defined existence in a strongly materialist way, and it seems to have actively avoided a meaningful exploration of consciousness, let alone the nature of the soul. And given the cultural standing of scientists as the arbiters of truth, this has left people in our culture somewhat spiritually stranded. And that is no place to be in a third-dimensional world with material limits. If we breach those limits we die, so clearly the objective is to find a way of thinking and acting which operates within those limits. And the most efficient way to do that in any ethical sense, may be to collaboratively develop an inclusive, universal spirituality which recognizes our connectedness and interdependence, fosters freedom of expression and designs in conflict resolution. The message of many of those interviewed is that the beings they are connected with live in this way, and in some ways influence humans to do the same. The conclusion to the human story may well hinge on how quickly and to what extent we engage with all the positive, expanding elements that this subject offers us. But after 70 years, it is still the case that no authority is taking responsibility for moving this forward, so it remains the duty of those called to it. For the foreseeable future, we are the Disclosure.
“In the very near future when the entire planet becomes aware of the truth of extraterrestrial visitation on Earth, Miguel Mendonça’s twin volumes of We Are the Disclosure will attain ever greater value. Today, the subject of non-human activity is simply the topic of speculation. But once this becomes part of our reality, Mendonça’s in-depth interviews with those close to the subject will be regarded as a comprehensive history of the process of public disclosure.”
Jim Marrs, New York Times Best Selling author of Alien Agenda
“I am in total accord with the title and message We Are The Disclosure. This book is a wonderful, in-depth compilation of personal motivation and passion for the truth, which comes through each page. I believe anyone drawn to this phenomenon will be intrigued and fascinated by the personal stories and motivations behind the faces, as they share what they really think and what they really feel about this compelling phenomenon. We discover what lies beneath their drive to find the truth! Whether they are a researcher, therapist, journalist, or Experiencer, this book offers compelling insights as they share personal perspectives. The insightful questions are answered with courageous honesty as they share their unique personal journeys.
If you want to know the story behind the story, this is the book for you.”
“Uncovering answers in the extraterrestrial and disclosure fields is much like the old parable about the blind men and the elephant. In this case, humanity has been blind for millennia and is only now beginning to open its eyes. There are many researchers attempting to understand this elusive phenomenon from many angles, trying to make a map that gives shape and definition to what once was a confusing and seemingly unconnected collection of data and firsthand accounts. Books such as We are the Disclosure help define an important map in this field by providing the research from many different angles. The book gives depth and dimension to the map, and provides a multitude of perspectives sourced from the life’s work of dedicated researchers. One person doesn’t have all the answers. As the pieces of the puzzle begin to be assembled through the work of these many researchers, the map takes shape. As it does, the phenomenon will define itself, likely leading to the most obvious of conclusions. This process, an organic disclosure of sorts, has already begun.”
“We Are The Disclosure by exopolitical researcher Miguel Mendonça, is a fitting follow-up to his book Meet The Hybrids. In Hybrids, we met the lives and missions of ET ambassadors on Earth, here for Density Ascension. In Disclosure, Mendonça asks leading Exopoliticians, UFOlogists, Whistleblowers & Experiencers [including yours truly] a series of questions designed to elicit a collective Disclosure, thereby accelerating the Density Ascension announced in Meet The Hybrids. This is a brilliant, compact and efficient strategy for disclosure and density ascension, and I urge all awakening Souls to support Miguel’s work, devour his books, and spread the word and knowledge widely.”
“In We Are the Disclosure, Miguel Mendonça grips the covert, complex and yes, stigmatized subject of extraterrestrial contact. Through simple, direct conversations he presents the personalities, discoveries, and experiences that lure the reader, one chapter after the next, into Disclosure of the ET presence. Miguel’s questions probe the deep intimacies of UFO-ET researchers’ private lives and personal work. Trust me: you will mark up the margins of this book. You will make a list of additional books to read. You will date your calendar with conferences where these researchers speak. But more importantly, you will know the ET presence in all of its intricate patterns that have marked our planet, perhaps since its inception. Miguel pushes Disclosure past political personalities and moneyed-government interests to where the discussion belongs—not in the halls of Congress or cloaked rooms of secrecy or Hollywood sound stages—but rather in the carefully tended fields of work and rooted lives of researchers and ET experiencers. Read this book. You may recognize your ET exoconscious self in its pages. And that’s the primary point of this book—your self-Disclosure.”

“Miguel Mendonça serves well as author, investigator, interviewer and reporter of the multidimensional relationships of humanity and extraterrestrial entities. His two-volume book, We Are the Disclosure, presents the physical, biological, psycho-social, and spiritual experiences of a wide range of participants.”

“We are the Disclosure provides us with an assembly of commentary and opinion from various investigators and witnesses to UFO events. While I have always valued the testimony of actual witnesses to UFO incidents above that of ‘investigators’, it is valuable to have the thoughts and commentaries of all who have found themselves immersed in this field. I appreciate the technique of asking each of the respondents the same questions. This provides some insightful consensus on some of the mysteries of this phenomenon. However, as we all know, consensus does not necessarily equate to the truth of the matter. As one who has had substantial UFO experiences, studied this phenomenon for over twenty years, interviewed many witnesses, and written two books on the subject, much of it is still a mystery to me. While, in my opinion, there are no irrefutable answers in this book about the subject, the commentary of other voices has value
because it adds to the body of our attempt to understand this very real phenomenon. I recommend this book.”
