UFOs and Wal-Mart

Something that ufologists seem to ignore about UFOs is how they re-supply; that is, how do they replenish their energy sources, food stuffs, and other exigencies of space or inter-dimensional travel?

If there are as many UFOs sighted as reported, just from where do they get their sustenance?

Even if UFOs are robot-piloted, they’d need to have some place from which to re-fuel or re-energize.

And if they are “manned” by living species, how do they eat or get their food and other things like medicine and supplies?

Are there motherships someplace in the nearby ether that provides UFOs and their crews with all the needs that crop up?

The lack of any palatable answer gives a bit of credence to Mac Tonnies idea that UFOs are a concomitant Earth species, unknown to us humans pretty much but having access to Earth’s resources.

That aside, if UFOs are real, and they seem to be, why don’t these craft and their occupants need a recurring boost of travel-fuel or energy, and why don’t they need to have food on a regular basis, or if they do, where do they get it from?

(Yes, the Snippy and/or cattle mutilations may account for some ingestions, but the so-called armadas of flying saucers cried out for a larger buffet than what those animal dissections allow.)

UFOs can’t be flitting all over he place without a re-supply camp or site, if one considers how may of these things are seen and have been for so many years now.

Species have to eat or re-fuel, and their ships would need to re-fueling too, unless the things are a chimera or quantum unreality as Bruce Duensing suggests.

At any rate, we don’t see how all the UFOs that are reported and have been reported can exist without an overt or palpable source for the things that any space-travelers or worm-hole travelers would need, unless they’ve evolved into self-sustaining beings or entities, and have made their vehicles to be likewise.

But then, of course, there could be a Wal-Mart near Saturn.

Anything seems possible in the UFO universe.

UFOs and a Tabula Rasa

It’s time to scrap everything that has been found out about UFOs, historically and accumulatively since the very first sightings – those in the religious texts (including the Indian epics) and everything since – Roswell, Lakenheath, the Hills episode, Socorro, Tehran, Phoenix, O’Hare, Stephenville….everything.

Ufologists should start from scratch, eliminating all the detritus that has encrusted the flying saucer/UFO mystery over the past sixty years, and begin fresh, new investigations of sightings extant.

Let the dead bury the dead, as the adage goes.

This isn’t just a plea for dumping UFO bilge overboard, but a suggestion that can take the enigma into a new arena of thought and research.

After all, the massive material gathered by many over the recent past has provided nothing of value, not a scintilla of useful information or data that comes close to solving the UFO riddle.

Surely this will upset the hoarders of arcane UFO anecdotes and fanciful accounts of flying saucer sightings. (They wallow in the plethora of irrelevant materials that make up the UFO literature.)

But a blank slate might just be what science and real UFO investigators need to get a real sense of what’s going on in the UFO pantheon.

The past can’t even be prologue. The phenomenon requires a clean slate upon which those who are interested in the anomalous things can scribble new thoughts about the mystery without being encumbered by all the nonsense that UFOs have acquired over the years.

This will take a strict discipline, and withdrawal symptoms shall affect many who now thrive on the glow and afterglow of previous UFO sightings.

Starting a new edifice is always daunting, and deep-sixing the UFO past will put many out of business, those who’ve invested time, energy, and materials they sell to each other and the gullible public.

But it has to be done, for the sake of a new UFO science and the desire to legitimate the phenomenon to newbies and scientists who scoff at the foolishness that UFOs have produced among immature, non-intellectual types who’ve besmirched the phenomenon by their shallow and/or inept research.

Let the blackboard be erased….
