UFO Conjecture(s)

Imagination creates reality? Yes, but….

Copyright 2013, InterAmerica, Inc.
Nick Redfern’s Mysterious Universe piece, linked here (below) sparks cogitation.

Even though Nick keeps his conjecture within the realm of fantasied perception by a few who may have had too much to drink or just had a temporary mental quirk, the idea that imagination creates reality is a given.

But taking away the word “imagination” moves us into another area: Does thought create reality? Or matter?

Scouring the internet, one will find scads of new age ramblings “confirming” that thought can, indeed, create reality or matter.

But that’s foo-foo stuff.

The suggestion that thought, or mental activity, can create reality, tangibility from nothing, or things ex nihilo, prods us into an area generally limited to the domain of God.

Can thought create things? Perceptible, real things? That are touchable and actual in real philosophical and scientific terms?

The alchemists and Cabalists worked to create realities from machinations of chemistry or numbers. Yet from nothing but thought? Perhaps.

Let my premise to lie here, while I and you scour our bookshelves for works that address the issue.

And then let’s see if what we find can allow for the creation of UFO or UFO sightings and/or events, ex nihilo.

That would be something. Jose Caravaca’s Distortion Theory approaches the matter. As do the stains on Betty Hill’s dress and the marks on the Hill’s car from their alleged UFO encounter.

What about the Michalak chest burns from his Falcon Hill encounter? Or the spaceman who’s creeping up on Jim Templeton’s daughter?

More to come…



  • I don't know if his work is considered credible or not amongst "serious investigators", but Albert Budden's book UFOs: Psychic Close Encounters deals pretty directly with this concept, using EMF as a possible intermediary.

    Maybe he's just viewed as too "out there", but the book is a fascinating read. I'm always amazed that it never comes up in posts like this one.

  • > the marks on the Hills' car from their alleged UFO encounter

    The spots on the Hill's car might require a psychogenetic theory of a different kind:

    All the early Hill documents mention the beeps on the trunk. None report spots on the truck or damage to the car of any kind!

    In Betty's September 26 1961 letter to Donald Keyhoe, she says: "There does not appear to be
    any damage to our car from the beeping sounds." Walter Webb's 1961 report to NICAP also does not mention spots, saying only, "...there were no electromagnetic disturbances..." The Air Force report doesn't mention spots or damage. Betty's notes about her dreams have nothing about spots or damage. The write-up in NICAP's UFO Investigator (Jan-Feb 1962) doesn't have spots or damage. The report in the APRO Bulletin (March 1963), still no spots or damage!

    All these reports are from fresh communications with the Hills: they are not copying or recycling earlier reports. Six chances to mention physical effects, six chances to cite corroboration for the beeps that rattled the trunk -- but never do we hear about spots.

    Theories, anyone?
