UFO Conjectures

We are living in a Matrix – not The Matrix but A Matrix

At my Facebook media page, I’ve taken to task Facebook, Google, Yahoo, and other internet entities that use we who sign up as fodder for their advertising aims.

We provide personal information for “free” access but have no way to contact those in charge of the sites named, to address issues or correct errors.

It reminds me of Charles Ives short musical piece The Unanswered Question where druids (us) plead with the gods for answers but nothing – not a sound, not a response of any kind – is forthcoming.
The druids (us) get more and more hysterical until the piece ends in dead silence, a recognition that we are alone – there are no gods or they ignore us at their whim and pleasure.

And this is how it is and has been with the UFO phenomenon: we devotees have been asking questions, of each other and those in authority, for about seventy years, and no one has provided a response, except those duplicitous entities who are fearful of UFOs or who have something to hide from those of us (the UFO druids, acolytes of the UFO phenomenon).

We have all gotten more and more hysterical over the years, probing governments and so-called UFO experts, to no avail.

For some reason the minor UFO matrix is abound with circumlocution, from UFO witnesses, UFO “researchers,” and those in government(s) who’ve made everyone afraid to tell what they really know, fearful of vague reprisals or societal whiplash: those who have a UFO experience must be loony.

This minor, man made UFO matrix has been convoluted by charlatans – researchers using hypnosis to dredge up observations (or alleged abductions) and those who try to capitalize on the phenomenon for personal gain or glory.

The real UFO Matrix is more vast and interesting. But a UFO matrix, such as I present here, is palpable and depressing, as it’s man-made and controlled by forces unconscious or malevolent yet seemingly insurmountable by most of us.

We are being defeated, or held at bay, by ignorant people and constructs, much as those swelling social media are being defeated by mercenary forces and greed.

Can we escape the matrix – the man-made matrix – so we might get at the UFO Matrix?

I’m thinking not, as humanity and society are getting dumber by the day, by the hour actually, and UFO mavens are dumber than most.



  • Great post but for that last paragraph of depression.

    I must presume that the answer is that we await disclosure by my alma mater, the US Air Force, an undeniable sighting event, or discovery of a credible physical artifact.

    Moving back to your post, and my own depression:
    It is indeed distressing that social media and the internet in general are involved in submerging rather than floating real information we seek.

    In kind, it is also distressing that the advent of camera phones and photoshopping supports a null hypothesis being put forward (not that I agree with that null). Who would have expected that when finally there were cameras in such ready abundance we would still wait for a great series of photos while at the same time suspecting anything clearly presented would be a photoshopped distraction.

  • Bryan:

    With the media attention to the Blue Book files [ABC, for one, 1/19/14], maybe some people will capture a bona fide UFO photo via those ubiquitous phone cameras.

    One can hope...

  • Will any knowledge gained from it suffice in relation to ourselves who cannot accept the incommensurable nature of what we represent? Our options are fantasy, belief, agnosticism or denial all wrapped up in imaginations projected on an incommensurable technology as a metaphor for ourselves for we have no proof, no conclusive argument by way of relationship as to produce meaning. One narrative versus another based on the contingencies of knowledge that will never be complete. Anyone can play this game of pin the tail on the donkey, trying to make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear or assume they are casting pearls before swine. What it does do in an extremely effective way is to reveal each player’s orientation to both this world and themselves.
    It’s an encyclopedic and reactive narrative of positioning psychologies in reaction to a hole in our orientation.. I think it’s a mirror..nothing more and nothing less to our conceptual models measured by who is attracted to it and who is repelled.

  • SO you think, Bruce, that reality is oriented to one's perception and there is no objective reality?


    By Blogger RRRGroup, at Tuesday, January 20, 2015  

  • I think what we term objective reality is relative to from where we are situated by the measurement of relationships.
    Accordingly, we image from within and without through imagination aided by the benchmarks or markers that we ourselves create in order to navigate the environment. However, there is no permanence by comparison by which to measure any of this.
    Some can live with this, some cannot.

  • ". . . maybe some people will capture a bona fide UFO photo via those ubiquitous phone cameras."

    Hasn't happened yet, and I don't think it ever will. Those dash cams on cars are great for capturing the next Mass Extinction Event, however.

  • We do not live in the past, because the past is over-with and therefore no longer 'exists' as such. Nor can we live in the future, as that means that we do not yet live, yet here we are (or at least seem to be).

    But here's the catch... Nor can we live in the so-called 'present', either, because it is nothing more than the razor's edge (infinitely small) between the past and future.
