UFO Conjectures

Why is there an inpenetrable bubble over every UFO episode?

Every report or “detailed” account of a UFO event is marred by some significant factor, from Kevin Arnold’s description of craft shape and speed, Roswell’s total narrative, Mantel’s airplane failure, the Hill’s dog reaction, Socorro’s symbol, Travis Walton’s buddy responses (to the sighting itself), and every witness report there- after; something is either missing or amiss.
Some think the U.S. military is the fracturor, while some of us think it’s the very nature of the phenomenon, but both sets of ufologists would be wrong.
The UFO is enigmatic because those reporting and those gathering (evaluating) reports are deficient in their accumulation or analyses of details, a failure of investigative forensics.
To drill down into a UFO account, one needs a myopic mental state, which most prefer to avoid in order to appear objective or discern- ing.

But (Dr.) Conan Doyle made his Sherlock character a user of cocaine, one drug that induces concentration, as opposed to metal chaos.
Cocaine’s effects appear almost immediately after a single dose and disappear within a few minutes to an hour. Small amounts of cocaine usually make the user feel euphoric, energetic, talkative, mentally alert, and hypersensitive to sight, sound, and touch. The drug can also temporarily decrease the need for food and sleep.14 Some users find that cocaine helps them perform simple physical and intellectual tasks more quickly…[https://nida.nih.gov/publications/research-reports/cocaine/what-are-short-term-effects-cocaine-uss].
I’m not suggesting UFO “researchers” use cocaine or any other obtuse substance, but I am suggesting that exami- nation of UFO reports and sightings need that Columbo or Holmesian approach which hasn’t and isn’t being used in the study of the phenomenon.
Every UFO report I’ve scanned has some deficiency of detail or follow-up: what had the observers ingested before their obser- vation or alleged encounter, what was the exact rhythmic pattern of lights on the thing seen, what was the seaming in a supposed alien’s clothing, how did their breath smell, what was the exact sound emitted by the thing seen, was the silence braced by an odor, and so on….
Collecting old flying saucer stories is not meant for museum-like preservation but should be used to ferret out some significant clue or apparent minutiae that leads to a cocaine-like observation or epiphany.

  • ". . . a failure of investigative forensics . . . a deficiency of detail."

    We agree it's ALL about detective work. Things appear crazy when you don't understand what's gone on, so you need all the evidence to draw a coherent picture. Here's what's been said by a couple of investigators who know about digging for detail:

    Dr. Robert Ballard, on the search for Amelia Earhart's airplane:
    "I’d been looking at the data. And, finally, I convinced myself. It’s not the Loch Ness Monster. It’s not Bigfoot. The plane exists, which means I’m going to find it."
    (I'm secretly glad he did not include UFOs in this statement.)

    Dr. Josiah Thompson, on the JFK assassination:
    "All the complications come from trying to press this into the wrong profile . . . Events happen in one way rather than another. . . [The assassination] happened in one way rather than another. And if the event happened one way rather than another, all the evidence should be compatible with all the other evidence."

  • Your examples, Ron, sum it up: every open mystery is humbled by something missing and that missing something continues to elude us, almost as if we are the butt of someone's joke.

    But who would be that someone.??

  • Thinking it's a joke is part of the chaos that comes from incomplete data.

    Or it's Pan. I'd rather believe the former.
