Are UFOs a mystical experience or a technological experience?
Which of the two experiences in my title above is more prominent in the UFO panoply or history?
It seems that quantum mechanics is the underlying “process” or modus operandi – the supportive mechanism -- operating within or without events that have been, mostly in the past, considered mystical – the appearances of a woman thought to be Mary the mother of Jesus (at Lourdes and Fatima, for instance) – and UFO sightings, up to the modern era.
In the middle 1890s and certainly after 1945, UFOs have been considered with a technological patina,
(The Roswell incident cemented such a view, with the alleged finding of “metal debris” or a craft, and bodies from supposed extraterrestrials who piloted the downs flying disk mentioned in a military press release.)
But it seems that there is an evanescent overlay to UFOs seen in the sky and even in those on-the-ground contacts with weird entities.
In ancient sightings, the reports were appended to religious or mythical tales.
In modern times, UFO accounts have been encrusted with a technological veneer.
This latter change can be attributed to the loss of religious milieux in society.
But whether or not UFOs, over the years or in our time, are mystical or technological matters not.
The procedure by which they arrive or are seen – experienced – seems to follow the mechanics of quantum, and a few postings here recently, noted by Joel Crook, from the science community seem to confirm a quantum basis for UFO sightings or events.
This would appear to be basis for study by UFO buffs, setting aside the extraterrestrial component, although the ETH could also benefit from a quantum underbelly.
