Analyzing UFO Drawings (psychologically and forensically)

The book, above, by Gregg M. Furth [Sigo Press, Boston, 1988] offers a psychotherapeutic approach that could be applied to drawings of UFO experiences (alleged abuctions also) to determine the underlying truth of the experience or fantasy elements provided by the unconscious of UFO witnesses.

Drawings by Betty Hill, Charles Hickson (Pascagoula), "Betty Andreasson" and others who've given investigators and media pictorial clarification for the events or sightings that engaged them can be analyzed, using them methods in this book, to make sense of the witness drawings (and even determine if the witness is hoaxing, reporting a real observation/event, or hallucinating).

Some drawings that could be evaluated include:

Here are some random drawings (from a Google search) that could also be analyzed:


My point is that are methods by which UFO researchers (real researchers) could determine a number of things about UFO accounts, this being one methodology.

Even if the only result of such scrutiny is psychological, eliminating a UFO reality, that, in itself, will add to the UFO history.

Of course, the method has to be employed by those skilled in psychology or neurology, even sociology. And there a few in the UFO community so skilled. But whether they will do so is questionable. The work would be arduous and daunting (particularly for older cases), but it seems to me to be worthwhile, within the context of solving the UFO enigma.

That is, it goes to determining the "reality" or not of UFOs, something Zoam Chomsky and Gilles Fernandez should encourage.
