UFO Conjectures

Where is the UFO genius?


During the 60 years (plus) that UFOs have been part of general human consciousness, and scrutinized by so-called ufologists, many things have been discovered and/or explained by the scientific community and geniuses in the arts and general population: vaccines for diseases, quantum proofs, the make-up of the universe (partially), the genetic underpinnings of human beings, et cetera.

But in the UFO world, nothing and no one has been proffered that explains or even comes close to explaining the phenomenon.

The early Greeks came up with insights that allowed such luminaries as Galileo, Newton, Einstein, Bohr, and others who studied the machinations of the Universe to provide truths about the phenomena they were absorbed with.

But in the world of “ufology” no one has come close to providing an explanation or even a smidgen of insight about the enigmatic appearances of lights and objects that bespeak intelligence or, at least, something physically strange.

While “studiers” of UFOs, such as Jerome Clark, Stanton Friedman, Jacques Vallee, and lesser lights, have gone nowhere, UFO reprobates continue to muddy the waters with their mid-life crises or misapplied verbiage across the UFO landscape.

The ludicrous concerns and hypothetical posturing of UFO hobbyists have tainted the UFO waters, and continues unabated to this day, with blogging that uses UFOs to stroke egos and create lists of who’s who in the UFO field.

Meanwhile, the phenomenon remains elusive and unexplained by those who’ve assumed the mantle of UFO expert.

Sixty years of nothing but frothy circumlocution hasn’t bode well for UFOs, and no one who professed or professes to be an expert in the field of “ufology” should be saluted, since they have produced little, if anything, that approaches an explanation or even a tenable hypothesis or theory about the mystery.

Is it understandable, then, why media, science, and serious elements of the general population eschew UFOs?

There is no UFO Einstein. There isn’t even a true UFO expert.

There are just some ragtag UFO mavens who live little, boring lives and need UFOs to keep themselves in some kind of make-believe loop.

That’s not tragic, just sad….very sad.


  • There are no UFO geniuses because scientists have not taken it seriously enough to study the phenomenon (with the exception of Dr. James McDonald). The development of the Atomic Bomb had geniuses becaue our best minds went to work on it. When governments of the world admit there is something to this pheomenon and it should be studied, the geniuses will come.

  • Hi,

    I have received e-mails off line sent by several young students who are into getting degrees in physics
    and they concur ufology is a great way to apply and study quantum theory...alot of the time, I have in mind reaching younger folks and provoking some curiousity in them..I can only hope they don't become as jaded as yours truly. I just also received an interesting e-mail from some paranormal investigators to compare notes with...so, there is no figurehead at present..but theres hope. I sent an e-mail to Larry King...the next time he does a show, why not include Vallee?
    Best Regards

  • Bruce:

    Getting Vallee on King (or any other TV/radio show) would be terrific.

    And getting younger UFO aficionados involved, especially those studying quantum physics, could produce a breakthrough in the UFO mystery.

    Your efforts are exemplary, as usual.

  • For whatever reason, the government has a vested interest in UFO's, and keeping their information secret. The science on it is censored.

  • There is at least one "ufo genius" I believe you are overlooking, perhaps because you apparently disagree with some of his primary contentions about the phenomenon:

    Dr. Jacques F. Vallee

  • There is one sure way to smoke out this genius - someone needs to put some skin in the game. If there were the equivalent of the Ansari Prize for UFOlogy, you would get people's attention. As it is, the potential accolades of the UFO community are a poor substitute. In the words of a former co-worker, "Don't praise me, raise me!"

  • There are geniuses in the field of Ufology (and fields which impact on Ufology) - sadly they are drowned out by the rabble of loonies who flood the subject with their inane ramblings. Prof Persinger would be one I would suggest, who has made an enormous contribution to understanding the phenomena. It may not be what the Ufologists want to hear - but he does have invaluable insights.
