Are UFOs Profound or Not?

The phenomenon (or phenomena as some of us see it) with the rubric, UFO, is either a transcendental reality or a quirky mundane reality.

Some infuse UFOs with a theological-like essence while others suggest that UFOs are a mass psychosis, encumbered by pathologies of various kinds (social, personal, conspiratorial, et cetera).

UFOs once had a tangibility summed up in the descriptive phrases flying saucers or flying disks.

But the phenomenon was transmogrified, by a member of the United States Air Force, into an amorphous phenomenon with the epithet UFO.

The change took flying saucers from the realm of concrete reality to a reality that is evanescent.

And the phenomenon itself became as it was tagged: unidentified and intangible.

Was Air Force Captain Ruppelt’s designation calculated and malicious or, inadvertently, a downgrade of profundity to mundanity, without a thought of how the mantle, UFO, would affect the phenomenon in essentia?

Flying saucers could be touched, captured (like the Roswellian “flying disk), examined, and subjected to tangible scrutiny it seemed.

UFOs, on the other hand, were off-limits at the outset – “unidentified.”

As the phenomenon as passed into the twilight of fringe reality it has lost its cachet as a “vehicle” for scientific scrutiny and has become an incorporeal thing subject to the vicissitudes of conjecture; e.g. mythology, hallucination, hoax, mental aberrations of diverse kinds, physical anomaly, and so forth.

And while reality is composed or various layers, UFOs have fallen to a bottom layer for humanity, replaced by the exigencies of human needs: survival and pleasure mostly.

Flying saucers were profound in their way. UFOs? A joke for most of humankind…

Roswell’s “Flying Disk”?

Copyright 2012, InterAmerica, Inc.
Two asides in a New Yorker article [5/14/2012, Here’s Looking at You by Nick Paumgarten, Page 48] allows for this conjecture perhaps…

“Archytas of Tarentum reputedly designed a steam powered mechanical pigeon in the fourth century B.C….

The actor Reginald Denny, a First World War ace and model-plane enthusiast, designed remote-piloted target drones for the United States Army in anticipation of the Second World War (he eventually sold the business to Northrop)…”
What if one of Denny’s “secret” remote flying drones (U.A.V.), being tested by the Army near Roswell, in 1947 crashed and was what Mac Brazel came across, which caused the Haut release of a “flying disk” capture?

The “drone” would have had secret or top secret classification, would it not, to keep the Russians from getting their hands on the thing?

And the Army would have gone out of its way to cover-up the details and the debris from the drone’s crash, wouldn’t it?

Roswell’s “Dream Team” might do well to check out the Denny drone creations and the testing protocols in place in the 1947 time-frame.

It’s an item worthy of investigation, isn’t it?
