How Aliens Avoid Detection
By Faye Passow
Yeah, I think it’s funny, too. The coolest thing about this type of event is that it’s not the weirdest UFO sighting or encounter I’ve read about. Seemingly absurd, even comic accounts of human encounters with the unexplained are peppered throughout the UFO literature.
My favorites include the man who witnessed an unusual craft land, opening up to reveal three occupants, controls, and a stove. He was given hotcakes. They were analyzed later and found to be normal, but lacking in salt. How do you relate this information, and report the encounter, and keep a straight face? Never mind hearing about it. Haw, Haw, Haw!
“Yeah, and after that we had breakfast”.
Bust my gut.
But, what a great way to ensure that your presence will never be widely accepted, and never examined with all the resources available.
Researchers like Jacques Vallee have taken encounters like that above and connected them to themes of interactions most commonly found in legends and fairy tales.
Archetypal parallels, the events updated with high-tech vehicles and alien appearances, but still interactions between us and the Fey World of myth. This theory is worth more examination.
The Extra-Terrestial Hypothesis (ETH) that holds UFOs as visitors or unmanned craft from other star systems, still has plenty of merit, in my opinion. Given the age of the universe, the numbers of potentially life-sustaining planets, and the fact that we’re noisy neighbors, odds are that somebody or some thing is gonna drop by to see what the ruckus is about.
The Extra-Dimentional Hypothesis (EDH) also has merit. As the Multiverse Theory slowly gains widespread ratification, and the population at large slowly grasps its implications, the idea of visitors from “other realities” doesn’t seem so outrageous. Especially when considered in light of “High Strangeness events”. Having UFO events, Bigfoot sightings, Giant bird sightings, bird-men sightings, and other paranormal incidents in the same places at the same time really does challenge us to expand our point of view.
The Psycho-Social Hypothesis (PSH) stresses the fact that what we percieve and believe are as much a product of our minds and culture as what “might really be there”.There are spiritual aspects of the phenomena, usually related to the observer/participant interpretation of the perceived. There are also biological aspects, as our senses are not perfect and lead to many illusions of experience. The mind itself is notoriously easy to deceive, as we constantly misperceive, misjudge and erroneously fill in missing spaces and gaps with our preferences.
Or nightmares. All too often, even without our awareness, our minds create images, memories, and “facts” that simply are not reflected in reality.
Sometimes, we get lost in fantasy, forcing it upon our world view. Usually, it’s harmless. Sometimes not.
”I turned to listen to the speaker, a channeler who was busily telling us how the spiritual SWAT team from the Sagittarius galaxy was coming to make our lives wonderful, and do everything short of showing us how to simplify the tax code while cutting the deficit. I looked at all the people smiling and nodding around me, rapt with knowledge that a better day was coming, and envied them their conviction. But then, contentment only comes to those who stop questioning, and that’s not a price I’m willing to pay.”
-Bufo Calvin, 1997
I have to agree. But if we DO get visitors from that direction, let’s hope they’re from Sagittarius A*. That’d be most cool, indeed.
Even the best theories remain just that without empirical proof. We may hold to our favorite beliefs with fanaticism, but the presentation of factual evidence should sway most reasonable people. One way or the other. Without facts to guide the process, we are free to develop and discuss the various theories that arise to help us understand all paranormal events. But speculation can carry us only so far. To have real answers to these very real questions, credible research must be conducted, and verified. In a civil discourse, with facts as base to debates, the best theories will rise to the top. Others will fall away. Events may occur that reverse previous thinking. Research is ongoing. Call me a dreamer…
Meanwhile, enjoy the show! And keep questioning. Nobody is holding a gun to my head, so I’ll suspend my belief in any theory until it is well on the way to fact. And I’ll try not to be too quick to discount, either.
