The True, Shocking Story Behind the Real Men in Black
Grant J. Kidney— On May 25th, 2012, the third installment in the popular ‘Men in Black’ franchise hit theaters and bedazzled movie-goers as they were treated to a tale of how benevolent, higher-than-government agents protect the world from the ‘scum of the universe’.
In the Men in Black films, Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) and Agent J (Will Smith) wipe clean the memories of any who might so happen to experience UFO phenomena. The role of the Men in Black is to keep extraterrestrial activity on planet Earth hidden from the ignorant masses.
Though branded a comedic series of films, Men in Black touches upon a more terrifying reality, namely, that there truly are levels of existence far beyond the recognition of most- and if one is to discover the truth, one may be quickly silenced by agents working for the corrupt, planetary elite.
Who are the REAL Men in Black?
Little does the average movie-goer know that the Men in Black franchise is rooted in historic fact. As early as 1947, UFO witnesses began to report strange visitations by ominous figures dawned in black suits. Appropriately deemed, the ‘men in black’, these sinister agents are said to have but one mission- to silence UFO witnesses, intimidating them in to submission.
Often times appearing non-human or even robotic in appearance, some researchers have suggested that the men in black themselves may in fact be creatures from another world. According to reports, the men in black will often times appear as white as a sheet of paper as though they were very sick or had lost a significant quantity of blood. Other witness testimonies suggest that some men in black may even wear lipstick.
In the following clip from the original television series, ‘Unsolved Mysteries’, several real-life men in black encounters are documented.
Mothman and the Men in Black
Perhaps one of the most significant of cases involving the men in black took place in the 1960′s when sightings of a mysterious, red-eyed, flying creature dubbed the ‘Mothman’ began to occur in a small, West Virginian town known as Point Pleasant.
Residents who claimed to have seen the Mothman also took notice of an apparent ‘take-over’ of Point Pleasant by strange men in black suits. Mary Hyre, who at the time was a correspondent for the Point Pleasant Register, was supposedly visited by one of these curious men in black.
In his book, ‘The Real Men in Black: Evidence, Famous Cases and True Stories of These Mysterious Men and Their Connection to the UFO Phenomena’, author Nick Redfern describes Mary Hyre’s bizarre encounter with the MiB agent.
In early January 1967, for example, Hyre – who, at the time, was working as the Point Pleasant correspondent for the Athens, West Virginia-basedMessenger newspaper – received her very own, and typically absurd and unsettling, visit from a Man in Black. The new stranger in town wore his black hair in a bowl-style, was less than five-feet in height, possessed a pair of weirdly hypnotic eyes, and had curiously thick soles on his shoes. Notably, the late Jim Keith, who wrote his very own book on the Men in Black, pointed out that: “Thick shoe souls [sic] are a recurring detail in many MIB encounters.”
Crazier still: the odd, little man seemed strangely entranced by Hyre’s ballpoint-pen. When Hyre told him he was welcome to keep it, his only response was a bone-chilling, cackle-like laugh, and he charged out of the door at high speed, duly vanishing into the cold, dark night as mysteriously as he had first arrived.
Real Life Neuralyzers?
In his book, ‘The Mothman Prophecies’ by author John Keel, the harassment of Point Pleasant residents on part of the MiB is laid out in further detail. What is most strange are the eerie similarities between the description of the real men in black and those seen on the silver screen.
In chapter nine of Keel’s book, one will find a depiction of how two lovers making out in the backseat of their car may have actually had their memories erased by the MiB. In the Men in Black films, Agents K and J tote around a small memory-zapping device known as the ‘neuralyzer’.
Things were rather pleasant on that squeaky back seat until about 10:30 pm when a blinding, bluish light poured in through the windows of the parked car. The next thing we knew, it was gone. Just like that. We jumped into our clothes and got the hell out of there. Another funny thing, when we got into town, it was after 12:30. We couldn’t figure it out. It seemed like we only looked at that light for a couple of seconds. But somehow it must have taken two hours.
Note: The neuralyzer flash appeared red in the first Men in Black film. In numbers two and three, the neuralyzer flash is blue just as cited in the depiction above.
The Mothman Prophecies also notes how men in black will sometimes disguise themselves with fake names and titles which sound all too simplistic in nature (see chapter two). In the first Men in Black, Agents K and J temporarily take on such names like ‘Manheim’, ‘Black’ and ‘White’ for the purpose of masking their true identities.
The UFO lore is populated with mysterious visitors claiming inordinately common names like Smith, Jones, Kelly, Allen, and Brown.
Note: Is it a mere coincidence that the two foremost of stars in the Men in Black films are Jones and Smith?
Men in Black Still Among Us
Beyond events surrounding the Mothman mystery and other prior UFO cases, encounters with the men in black persist to this day, according to researchers like Nick Redfern. In the following YouTube clip, two men in black agents are supposedly caught on film for the first time ever.
So who are the real men in black? Might they be agents of the Illuminati order here to keep quiet those who know too much? Or are they alien beings here to cover their own tracks and to control the flow of sensitive information? We may never know.
It is this author’s opinion that the men in black may be quite similar in nature to the agents of the Matrix franchise. In the Matrix Reloaded, the Oracle informs Neo,
Every time you’ve heard someone say they saw a ghost, or an angel. Every story you’ve ever heard about vampires, werewolves, or aliens, is the system assimilating some program that’s doing something they’re not supposed to be doing.
If, according to modern day physics, our third dimensional reality is but a mere holographic illusion, then perhaps the duty of the real men in black is to assure the vital functionality of ‘the matrix’, serving as a type of police force to keep the rather rogue elements of the illusion in check.
