Angel Hair and/or Spider Silk powers UFOs?


A science discovery shows that spider silk is as good or better for thermal conductivity than metals and could be developed for electron transfers and other electronic needs.

Chick HERE for the story.

Angel Hair, the once-ubiquitous element of UFO sightings, is not unlike spider silk or webbing.

  • 'On November 2, 1959, in the city of Evora in Portugal, a sample of angel hair was collected and analyzed by technicians and military scientists at the University of Lisbon. Conclusions stated that the substance was so advanced that it could be a single-celled organism of some kind, some kind of plant product.'

    I wondered about this passage and how a single-celled organism was 'so advanced?'

    I think it's a language issue based on a faulty translation of this line from the Wiki article, 'It was advanced that it could be a single-celled organism of some kind.'

    'Angel hair' reports seem to be one of those phenomena that involved a core stimulus that quickly agglomerated hoaxes and mythology. 'Spiders!'

    In similar fashion to the fancy humanoids, they appear to have prickled our awareness and vanished we-know-not-the-where-of...

  • And like other UFO "fads," Kandinsky, angel hair is no longer represented in UFO accounts.

    Like you, I wonder what happened to the phenomenon.

  • My sense of this was a change in expectation and anticipation over time. Ectoplasm emanating from mediums and angel hair were at one time an imaginative innovation and each ran their course by viral distribution one equating one with the other. Angel hair =UFO. Ectoplasm = Ghost Sentience. Since it had no grounding in natural phenomenon outside of psychology, these manifestations could not be maintained as consistent effects like an apple falling from a tree in the wind. They were replaced with other memes as pseudo effects.

  • Bruce:

    As soon as I see "memes" in an essay or "paradigm," I'm outta there.

    The word "meme" is as hoary as the Angel Hair trope you allude to.

    (I hate "trope" too, but needed to use it here, as a corollary to "meme.")

  • Replace meme with an unsubstantiated rumor as a matter of personal tastes and it comes out the same as a living rather than historically based myth.

  • Meme is so affected.

    The media people we have to deal with, Bruce, at our media-watch blogs and web-sites are fond of "lede" -- replacing "lead" to appear "insider-like."

    Meme comes off the same way, that's all.

    It's become hackneyed and banal.

    I'm surprised that you, with your vast vocabulary, would use it.
