A UFO experience via e-mail

I never believed in ufos, although my mother told of her aunt and uncle in Florida having a sighting (before roswell) that left a burn mark in the field. I took an astronomy class in college where the instructor (retired nasa) said it would be impossible due to the distance.

Fifteen people and I went out to stargaze on sackrider hill near portage lake after our friends wedding. Tom pointed out a moving red dot in sagitarius that got bigger and descended in a stairstep pattern and hovered before all of us at the bottom of the hill. We were scared shitless but got up the nerve after a while to walk down the hill to get a closer look. We were nearly up to it and it moved to the top of the hill.

It laid down the grass next to me when it went overhead like a helicopter would, but with much slower pulsations than the blades of a helicopter sound like.

It was much more realistic looking than any supposed pictures or drawings I had seen before (or since) of ufos. It had far more actual detail to it and many more windows, much like an ocean-going cruise ship, and I mentioned to the others that it must be tourists. It took off like a bolt of lightening after a while (much like descriptions I read about later-mind you I never read about them before, or anything else that might appear in the national enquirer for that matter). We went back to the lake house, still in utter disbelief, and compared stories and descriptions until daybreak, just to confirm that we were not hallucinating.

It is a hill with a big cross on it, in case you want to go by there some time.

I read some of your blogs and thought you might be interested.

  • Interesting that it occurs after/during a Wedding event - one of the biggest moments in someone's life involving change and the "between state" of single and married. Complete life upheaval.

    There's your liminality so often coinciding with paranormal events - A wedding is the pinnacle of threshold events.

  • Are you implying that perhaps awareness or magnetism to higher beings is a comonplace event when an individual is in a hightened state of awareness?

    That would perhaps go along with several psychological philosophies such as Jung or William James, or even with the theories of transpersonal psychology, psychosynthesis, and even Chaos magic.

  • Perhaps it is not an ideal level of awareness, but rather a fluke in the way the holographic brain perceives the holographic projection of the universe. The brain filters that funnel down reality to a comprehensible trickle may somehow be turned off during the liminal events. The question still arises on the ability for a mass event such as this or, even, let's say the parting of the red sea with Aaron's magical staff that came from higher beings. This would imply a physical event that either a) opens a channel of awareness, or b)blocks either a filter or the holographic projection itself in some way that makes objects we would not ordinarily see become visible (or possible in the red sea "miracle"). Maybe those nuts who belive in "mind control" are not so far off base.

  • Tim-
    I wouldn't say anything about the phenomenon is commonplace - but instances of liminal states, seems to be fairly consistent in paranormal activity.

    Say a house is renovated after 50 years. The new owners of the house report that they've seen ghosts, and other odd phenomena around the house since they've been breaking out walls and painting or building an addition. You hear this pretty often right?

    The house is in a liminal state, and the people in it are out of routine. Paranormal activity seems to happen within these states. It might not even be the house, or the people in it...but the state of change and upheaval.

    Major life or environment changes seem to coincide with odd events and manifestations. A wedding seems pretty consistent.

    How it applies to brain chemistry? That's reducing it to the physiological which I don't think is the case.

    I don't know what it means, what I can say is I've seen many paranormal events clicking within marginality, anti-structure, and liminal states. Look at what surrounds paranormal events and not so much focusing on the event itself.

    I look at these states I mentioned as a clue to deeper issues - seeing the paranormal manifestations and perceptions as a symptom of something much bigger and more complex.
