UFO Conjectures

The flaccid thinking about UFOs

Copyright 2023, InterAmerica, Inc.
Driving back to Ann Arbor, this morning, with the U of M gang, after a night of restless sleep even after a large mug of Moon Boost (from NoonBrew – a new company offering herbal tea concoctions), I’m punchy.
But I was stimulated by the in-SUV discussion(s) about the UFO phenomenon, sparked by my questions about the upcoming revivalist gatherings to “memorialize” the 1966 Ann Arbor/Dexter “swamp gas” hysteria.
The U of M people offered suggestions about what UFOs are or mean, suggestions that never appear among the UFO crowd or community, as far as I know.
I’ll be offering commentary on the travel-back conversation upcoming, but this for now:
Persons with academic and/or scientific acumen look at the phenomenon in ways that UFO enthusiasts and fanatics never do.
The implications of the phenomenon override and displace the fetid and stale explanations of UFOers for the mysterious things that we “hobbyists” attribute to them.
For instance, UFOs are ET (extraterrestrial craft), or advanced human technology, or aerial creations of beings within our Earth, or technology of the gods. And so on….
The problem, for me, with these off-centered observations is that they never appear in any UFO circle I’m part of and I’ve joined quite a few, lately one new one that I’ll be entering with some of these off-topic “revelations” offered by associates who are not mine but in my presence via propinquity more than anything else.
So, you blokes dropping by here may get an earful or not – Ron the exception as he stays atop what’s going on in the UFO world.
We’ll see…..


  • Could be upper atmosphere organisms or some other form of native phenomena presently unknown to science. There is a short horror story written by Arthur Conan Doyle called "The Horror of the Heights" that expands upon the former idea. The story is fiction, of course, but the concept is within the realm of possibility, imo. Perhaps just as likely to be true than the more topical notion of aliens, or their technology, visiting from distant stars.

  • Jay...

    I put an account of just that kind of possibility, online here, a few months back.

    It was a (true?) story of a group of cowboys who came across such a living creature, and I read it with the possibility that it was a credible tale.

    You might find the piece by using the blog search box -- upper left of blog == by typing in cowboy or butte.
