October to Present - A national and international effort to

law passed during the last days of the Clinton Administration
may provide a new tool to pry information from the government.

UFO/ET research/activist organizations will put it to use
immediately, as they did with the FOIA. ( > 5 seconds)

The Paradigm Clock was last reset on January 16, 2002 in
response to the extraordinary events which began on September
11, 2001.

The Paradigm Clock resides at the Paradigm Research Group


It is a metaphor representing the proximity to formal
acknowledgment by the U.S. government of an extraterrestrial
presence manifest about the planet. It is modeled after the
"Doomsday Clock" first published in 1947 by the Bulletin of
Atomic Scientists. Midnight on the Doomsday Clock meant nuclear
war had begun. Midnight on the Paradigm Clock will mean formal
disclosure of the extraterrestrial presence has taken place.

imposed embargo on the truth of an extraterrestrial presence and
the convening of open, comprehensive congressional hearings to
take the testimony of government witnesses as regards UFO/ET
events and evidence.
