The US Congress has passed the UAP Records Collection Amendment to the 2024 National Defense Authorization Act mandating that all US Government agencies and contracting corporations turn over all the evidence they have gathered concerning UFOs — now called Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP) — to the National Archives for dissemination to the public. Jim Garrison will discuss the implications of this legislation and the possibilities for a larger framework for human identity in a cosmic context.
