The Teleology of UFOs?

purpose.jpg
Teleology is the belief that natural processes are purposefully directed toward some end or goal.

Are UFOs natural processes?

They seem to be; that is, there is a tendency, on the part of rational persons, to see UFOs as tangible (in a sense) and natural because they have been seen to maneuver as natural objects, even when they depart from what other objects can do: speed, turns, sudden disappearances, et cetera.

But is there a goal or end in the UFO process? None that anyone has been able to discern.

UFOs don’t operate on or use Newtonian principles.

UFOs are more quantum-like: uncertain and bizarre.

This disturbs those who like to understand that with which they are confronted, either in fact or metaphorically.

One can cite all the UFO sightings extant but still have no idea what the end-game or purpose of UFOs may be.

If one sees an aircraft of human design in flight, one can assume, rightfully, that the aircraft is determined to get from an identifiable point A to point B.

A UFO, seen in flight, is just an object with no observable purpose. It’s not going from point A to point B. And it doesn’t really seem to be engaging in aerial displays to enchant or entertain.

The airships of the 1890s operated, seemingly, with no definable purpose.

Kenneth Arnold’s “saucers” came from nowhere and went nowhere.

The Washington D.C, “blips” of 1952 came from nowhere and went nowhere also.

Even UFOs or “flying saucers” that made it to point B (from some unknown point A) abruptly departed to an ethereal Point C, which has always remained hidden.

Observation of UFOs, like quantum particles, remain elusive.

Unlike the deterministic nature of normal flying objects (airplanes, for example), UFOs present the non-deterministic nature of quantum particles or waves.

As coherence is a quantum problem, so too coherence is a problem when it comes to UFOs.

Observations of UFOs merely exacerbates uncertainty. No one has, credibly, shown by observation that UFOs have a purpose, a teleology.

This is the crux of the UFO enigma: the phenomenon has no basis in Newtonian reality and that makes for difficulty on the part of those intrigued by or studying the phenomenon.

Are UFOs worthy of study? Are quantum particles/waves worthy of study?

  • I suspect that the mere fact of *observing* the UFO, is part of their purpose.

    In other words, it's not by mere chance that you get to observe one of these astounding spectacles of color & light; and you will never be the same afterwards.

  • Yes, RPJ,

    The observation, as in quantum mechanics is key I think.

    Observation or measurement of UFOs affect the reality.

  • This sort of thing is my area of interest and research as covered in my own blog.
    Dr Brian Joesphson recently presented a paper on one missing aspect of the observer effect, which is the instrument that interacts with wave potentiality and that is our biology, which we have no means to attenuate.
    Field effects from observation can be local or can be global depending on what ( referential cues) are being attenuated, arbitrated by the density of attention by it's distribution ( a wave effect) and how we process by anticipation, what the results should be by way of semiotics as an organizing set of stereotypes created by language.
    The trigger is the question something that Dr Persinger has searched for n terms of what is the middlemen between the brain and the environment and in an era of punch cards used for data processing, long ago looked for geographical patterns., which produced interesting results.
    Another aspect that I am currently writing about is the correspondence between Irrational REM processing and rational waking states and the firewall between them and what may breach this is terms of emotional states. This has been studied elsewhere using a process similar to Hynek's classification system. In this case, I am researching "demonic" possession. This leads to similar correspondences between the nature of "alien abductions" and some UFO cases where "possession, close encounters, ghost "data" can produce PSI effects in the environment, that lead to the reinforcement that these are effects whose roots are outside of oneself by the "other" Same for EVP phenomenon. Because the results experienced fall into various typologies, they are classified as separate and distinct IE aliens being distinct versus ghosts, demons, etc. Cause and effect are reversed in the mind of most.

  • BTW..In terms of my comments on the Dream Team and extraterrestrial visitation, I should have commented that this is possible in terms of technology but it is unlikely in terms of direct contact and biology.
    In our own backyard, when the Europeans invaded the Americas, entire populations were wiped out, not by weapons, but by microbiology. The other aspect is the mutation of bacteria and virus distribution, an aspect that any extraterrestrial would know. The potential for contamination is extremely high if one just steps out onto terra firma. One would think any contact with an extraterrestrial not isolated from the environment by means of being suited, would result in definite effects that would make the avian virus look tame with the same result, no treatment would be available. So..I do not take tales of Roswell or direct contact seriously with unsuited visitors as there were no biological protocols present, and as a result we should see definite effects.
    Why this escapes everyone is a mystery. However, there are older cases of suited visitors that I think were lost in all this human confusion and myth making. I suspect they came and went if they came and were extremely careful to avoid direct contact with any material here.

  • With the quantum theme of this intriguing post, I propose that the UFO phenomena could fit (no pun intended) nicely in Schrodinger's box thought exercise.

    Substitute Schrodinger's cat with the UFO phenom in the box. It either exists or not depending upon ones observation and/or imagination.

    What would we observe once the box is opened?

  • I have to point back in time to the work by Jacques Vallee, as published in 'Edge of Reality' and Vols. 1 & 2 of 'Forbidden Science', .....all if which demonstrates that "everything old is new again"

  • Chuck
    I always thought of Drs Hynek and Vallee as the Freud and Jung of Ufology..I always wonder who the unnamed "wealthy" investor was that offered Hynek funding for a new research center, with the proviso that the research would go in a certain direction, which, consequently, Hynek turned down.
    Was it Bigelow? If not, then whom?
    A footnote in the story of a once and future "ufology"
