IN THE MIND OF UFOS -- excerpts from José Antonio Caravaca's latest book [Part 1]

An exhaustive analysis of more than 10,000 close encounters with UFOs that offers surprising and disconcerting conclusions never reached before...

JOSÉ ANTONIO CARAV@CA First Edition: June 2022

It must be taken into account that one of the most serious mistakes made by ufologists has been to consider that the extraterrestrial hypothesis (ETH)5 was the only, as well as evident and logical, solution to the enigma before even having all the data and information on the table to, obviously, be able to form a more accurate idea of the paradigm at hand. Also, to top off this initial failed approach, almost all research has been conducted, oriented and even sweetened to "prove" the validity of the visit of alien beings to our planet over any other proposal that dared to stand up to this seductive idea. Trampling over any clue or element that could call into question this belief.
... 
There are a series of complex questions that have never crossed the minds of most ufologists: how can there be so many different types of crew members; why don't flying saucers leave traces in all landings; why in some incidents the occupant of the UFO can speak our language perfectly and in others he babbles in an incomprehensible language; why do the alleged extraterrestrials repeat certain actions ad nauseam over and over again in front of witnesses? Why do we have such different descriptions of the same apparent phenomenon; why do aliens wear scuba suits in one event and not in others; why are many close encounters absurd and nonsensical; where does this link between paranormal phenomena and flying saucers comes from; why does the ufological paradigm have so many things in common with our human society; why do UFOs have so many colored lights if they want to go unnoticed ?
... 
Andres Gomez Serrano, 19 in his book UFOs: 50 years of research in the Campo de Gibraltar (1997), almost poetically stated that UFOs:
 
Thousands of witnesses (millions of them) have seen them, photographed them, filmed them, chased them (with fighter planes), and they have even been shot from the ground and from the air with all kinds of weapons, including missiles, both day and night. Governments are still silent, do not know, do not respond. The most impenetrable mystery accompanied by a persistent silence hangs over this lurid affair. In spite of the fact that in their possession -we only suppose-, there are ample and voluminous dossiers classifying them as "Top Secret or top secret classified matter".
... 
The researcher Félix Arés de Blas stated that: "The UFO phenomenon is a multiple phenomenon. There is a physical phenomenon. There is a physical phenomenon and there is a mythical phenomenon. They are totally differentiated realities, autonomous worlds with few contacts between them. The UFO myth exists and has a life of its own independent of the physical UFO, or with very little relation to the physical UFO.42
...
Do you understand now, dear reader, why one premise prevails over the other, who is going to admit the reality of these encounters 63, and is it logical that a partial and biased reading of the data is preferred? One thing is clear. The more information about the UFO phenomenon we have, the more confusion64. The closer the proximity, the more the anarchy in the data . And, therefore, our reason must “leave the ship” before facing the deep study of the case reports.

From the UFO emerged a flying humanoid that approached before the astonished witnesses to get behind the wheel of their car (Carav@ca Archive).

  • These few excerpts, in no way, indicate the brilliant extent of José's "theory" which I'll provide more of upcoming.

  • Rich I hope that this DeepL translation might be appealing to some American publishing companies, so the book can see the light in English. Josè has done a very good job not only with the main text but with his generous comments per chapter. I like also the fact that he offers the reader sketches of the various cases, so the absurdity of the reported Ufonaut descriptions can be better understood.

  • Stav...

    I agree. The thinking and content is brilliant.

    I'm considering the idea of having my company -- InterAmerica -- underwriting an English translation.

    We'll see.

  • Rich and Stavros...Thank you very much for your words friends, both of you are very considerate of my work... and this translation would not be possible without the effort of Stavros.

    Saludos

  • JAC, RR, and Stavrosh:

    I came here to inquire about when JAC's IN THE MIND OF UFOS might be available in English. From reading the comments I now see that its being published may be a long way off. But it seems there is a machine-translated manuscript available.

    I realize it might be a big request but is there any chance I could be sent the translated manuscript? I have some history with academic publishing and would happily (in exchange for having the privilege of reading it) provide editorial suggestions on the whole manuscript to help smooth out the machine translation if this is desired.
