  • This could be an interesting pursuit for someone with the chops to process the data. It's been done to some extent by Hatch, Vallee, Teodarani and Rutkowski...and others.

    We'd expect 'ufological' results to be somewhat iffy due to dependence on reports we can't know the credibility of. Accuracy and honesty are often matters of judgement in this field.

    On the bright side, let's say the reports of 1947-1950 were used? Each report would need to be reduced into values of time, location and type.

    The resulting maps and predictive outcomes could then be compared to a separate analysis of reports from, for example, 1951-54.

    If the first results are shown to be accurate in predicting the reports of 52-54, we'd be looking at something very interesting.

    It wouldn't necessarily lead directly to *proof* of aliens, misidentifications or hoaxes.

    It could generate some new directions for study.

  • Kandinsky:

    The task would be daunting, but if a researcher was serious about UFOs and where the next or future sightings might occur, the payoff could prove valuable.

  • Slightly off-topic - as technology develops, it should become possible to analyse the vocabulary of purported 'channelers.'

    It's something I've been thinking about a lot recently.

    Folk have been claiming to channel all these great intelligences for decades. Current software could hold them to account by comparing the words of the *entities* with the words of the channeler.

    The debate of whether they are messages from the subconscious, conscious hoaxery or something else could be nailed right there.

  • Channelers, Kandinsky, turn me off.

    Although the possibility that such people are receiving outsider intrusions can't be ruled out.

    Schizophrenics seem to be receiving "noise" that is not self-induced.

    You might check out the neurological information extant about that.

    (Knowing you, a bit, I bet you've already done that.)
