The film “The Box” released in 2009 by director Richard Kelly does much credit to the UAP files in general. It was based on the 1970 short story “Button, Button” by Richard Matheson, which in itself was adapted into an episode of “The Twilight Zone” in 1986. Each subsequent version adds to and deepens the mythology of the storyline. The movie tells us that a highly advanced race of beings is playing with us and makes it clear that they dance around humanity in order to enlighten them with values. In many ways they represent God of the divine itself but the movie does hint that it’s all about aliens. Consequently the advanced extraterrestrial species, who use sufficiently advanced technology that’s indistinguishable from magic, are aiming on further developing humanity. The aliens use unique techniques and seem to be everywhere at the same time as they can control other people who act as agents on their behalf.
The lead extraterrestrial or the head ‘tester’ of humanity controls the NSA and NASA among other organizations and uses many different aspects of humanity to measure the so-called ‘Altruism Coefficient”. This goes on until a certain percentage is reached. It is hinted that perhaps things could change for us if we do succeed in reaching the desired percentage. During the film it’s clear that we do not accomplish the satisfied result and are further tested through something that’s called, ‘The Box’.
When a person asks about the Altruism Coefficient he gets the following reply. “If human beings are unable or unwilling to sacrifice individual desires for the greater good of your species, you will have no chance for survival…and my employees will be compelled to expedite your extinction. Clear?”
It is clear that – unable or unwilling to sacrifice individual desires for the greater good – gets people killed by their own doing. That is what the box does actually do. You get to push the button once whereupon Arlington Steward, the provider of the box, collects it and donates a briefcase of 1 million dollars. The only consequence of pushing the button is that you kill somebody somewhere that you don’t know.
