Your astute 'seismic shift in consciousness' may also include aspects and reactions to why the public been derided and kept in the dark about the existence of ET visiting and living on and Earth for at least 75 years in not for centuries.
Yes, the general public's reactions are well-documented about the chaotic consequences of Orson Wells playing a prank on his listening audience in 1938 with his radio broadcast 'War of the Worlds'. We must avoid such outcomes.
Numerous people who consider themselves ufologists have not yet gone beyond the wow factor of sightings. Thus, I feel some urgency for readers to seek reliable sources and think about it all and discuss with friends, family, and colleagues - and your role, if any, in disseminating accurate information and possible face to face involvement.
What publications, news outlets and researchers can you trust?
We cannot know which government from what country will break the news. How will you and the unsuspecting public react to the information and prepare for what comes next?
My concern is that humans are a warring species and will reach for their weapons before any enquiry, cooperation, peacekeeping, respectful protocol and diplomacy.
The US Pentagon has begun drip-feeding us on the internet by releasing videos of sightings such as this one.
What researchers and experiencers of extraterrestrials, spacecraft, ET technology, and starry cultures make your top list and why?
Some of mine are:

Many on Gaia TV such as those on Cosmic Disclosure and Beyond Belief
