The Life and Death of UFOs

Oswald Spengler, in his book The Decline of the West (and other tomes) posited that city-states (countries, nations, empires, et cetera) have a “biological” existence; that is, they are born, live, and die much like human beings and other flora and fauna.

This is, we conjecture, what has happened and is happening to UFOs (flying saucers and the strange aerial phenomena that have been reported by many observers).

Early UFOs appeared in ancient skies as chariots, shields, and sun-like or comet-like visages.

When they showed up near modern times, they did so as air-ships, dirigible-like flying vehicles.

They had matured from “hardware” and meteorological phenomena to actual craft, operated by beings or as self-propelled entities.

In the late 1940s and 1950s, they became adolescent, and appeared with substantial bearing and activity: they even inter-acted, foolishly, with humankind.

In the 1960s and 1970s they formed gangs and, by abductions and other intrusions (over head), terrorized humanity oftentimes.

In the 1980s they started to mellow, and their activity became benign and non-confrontational pretty much.

In the 1990s, up to our time (2008), they have been on the wane, with occasional spurts of senile activity, as they start their descent into death, which should occur any time now.

We may be even be seeing the “ghosts” or spirits of UFOs, as they have perhaps already died in reality, as they have in the minds of many around the globe.

(Edward Gibbon’s The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire also acts as a precursor to the UFO phenomenon, and not just metaphorically.)

  • A DIFFERENCE OF OPINION: THERE ARE MORE SIGHTINGS AROUND THE WORLD, BECOMING MORE IN CLEAR VIEW, AND ON TAPE. THEIR AERIAL GROUP MANUEVERS INCLUDE MULTIPLE GROUP SHAPE PATTERNS/PHYSICAL TRANSFORMATIONS/TEMPORARY AND PERMANENT INVISIBILITY ...ETC. THEY ARE PREPARING US FOR FULL-CONTACT, AND THE CLOCK IS TICKING!!!

  • Sightings are easier to quantify than qualify. Not every report is reputable. And we're beginning to see a lot more coming out of Latin America and Southeast Asia that tend to have culturally-specific attributes to them, which becomes suspect. Of course, we're talking about a phenomenon that has always been colored by cultural and political motifs.

    This is the first time I have been to your blog. I have to say I liked it so much I mentioned it in a post on my own blog. You seem to keep a healthy dose of skepticism and you often find the humor in the whole thing. I like that. It is very refreshing. So much of UFOlogy has gone from "watching the skies" to "watching our backs" and conspiracy theories about "reptilians" harvesting us for food are now the norm instead of the exception. I have grown disillusioned by UFO websites (who have grown furtive, secretive) and UFO magazines (now publising everything from channeling your chakra through crystals to spotting loved ones inside "orbs"). So, when I found this site, it was truly a breath of fresh air. Thanks.
