As far as I know The X-Files is an American science fiction horror, so I don't see any connection here.
Everybody is seeying the reality in different ways and it's matter of different point of view and what we think we call reality is just majority acceptance (mainstream science/media) at the given time/space (some time ago majority believed that Earth is flat or it's in central of Universe).
Another example, Holographic principle theory (the most probable version of our Universe accepted by mainstream science) states that there is no matter as we think and all is made of electromagnetic waves (vibrations) and everything is just empty space. Or the double-slit experiment proves that light can be both wave and particle depending how you measure it which gives some controversy about Quantum consciousness (you can't prove it or disprove it). So how do you define the reality then?
In summary. If group of people believe certain theory/ideology, that's how they perceive the reality with theirs internal/external senses which are tuned to interpret our reality and will subjectively perceive themselves as existing in a physically 'real' world.
My point is that no single person can say what's real or not.
I you don't believe in Alchemy, disprove it first, as there are people who claiming they know how to do it and they did it.
Exopolitics is more real as you think it is. There are professional entities (institutes, government organisations, etc.) which are dedicated to the study, promotion and support of exopolitics. One example is where Reinstated Kingdom of Hawaii which opened this year The Star Visitor Sanctuary. There are real people who are dealing with it. Check and watch also Sirius Disclosure before making any negative comments about it as these topics are well known by high class government professionals who swearing on their lives that it's real. The topic was discussed also on US Citizen Hearing. See also released documents by official governments, FBI, NSA, CIA and other documents.
If you grasp the topic a little bit further, you'll get to the point of Metaphysics and Astral. U.S. interest in the phenomenon dates back at least to WWII, CIA funded a research at SRI called Stargate project - 20 million dollar project which studied RV for over 20 years. It's good to note that retired US Army General Stubblebine confirms the stunning success of US Army. And the official CIA statement says:
It was then "without my knowledge" that the head of the CIA (Adm.
Stansfield Turner) turned to a woman reputed to have psychic powers.
As told by Carter, "she gave some latitude and longitude figures. We
focused our satellite cameras on that point and the plane was there."
Please don't be misleaded by Wikipedia articles which provides only the neutral point of view and doesn't take any sides. The reason why it's not accepted by mainstream science, is because all of breaking-through research papers are classified and it's simply about the power, otherwise countries would spy on each other using psychic detectives.
Secondly how do you use scientific physical instruments to measure the non-physical aspects of reality to prove that something is real? It simply doesn't make sense. Even if you do, there is problem of demarcation which takes a very long time to prove and accept new ideology and shift the old scientific paradigm by broad agreement on the so-called parapsychological or psi phenomena.

And regarding New Age, there are tons of books and scientific research done in this area (call it pseudo, sceptical science, New Age science or whatever you want). But check for example the controversial experiments done by L/L Research group since '60 e.g. Introductions to The Law of One from 1981 (read Session 1) which are very consistent with completely different New Age authors such as Amorah Quan Yin, Barbara Hand Clow, Barbara Marciniak and many more.
It still doesn't make it worse than other popular SE sites such as: Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Biblical Hermeneutics, Pastafarianism, etc.
If one can't grasp it, just simply ignore it (it doesn't hurt) and please leave to the people who are expertise in these topics. Nobody knows everything, that's why we are in need of asking the questions, what's all about, right?
