Those UFO-Humanoid Helmets!

After posting, recently, the James Ragsdale anecdote, noted in Kevin Randle’s new Roswell book, about the golden helmets he saw (and allegedly collected) from the bodies he says he stumbled upon during the supposed 1947 flying disk crash near Roswell in 1947, I was perusing Albert S. Rosales book, Humanoid Encounters: The Others Amongst us, 2000-2009 [Triangulum Rosales, 2015] and discovered that almost all of the reports Mr. Rosales gathered had witnesses who saw humanoids wearing uniforms and wearing helmets (of varying design and color).

Yes, I know that many of you discount such humanoid accounts, which often come from sensationalizing sources.

But, as there are so many recorded encounters, some of which have to be “real” in the hallucinatory, fabricated, or actual sense, I’m wondering why helmet wearing humanoids (ET-suggested or otherwise) show up so often in the rendered accounts.

Photographs and videos of human astronauts, more often than not, show those astronauts, while in their space vehicles (the defunct Shuttle or International Space Station) without headgear.
Even sci-fi movies and many comic book renditions of alien creatures are often without helmets, not all but many, so helmets are not a universal meme.
Yet, UFO reports, even outside of Mr. Rosales’ collections, have humanoids, seen inside and outside their assumed spacecraft, wearing headgear or helmets: e.g., Doreen Kendall [1970], Carl Higdon’s Ausso [1974], Herbert Schirmer [1967], et al.
So, I ask, what causes UFO witnesses to note helmets on their visualized humanoids?

  • They note helmets, Rich, because the visitors were wearing helmets! (Can't breathe in our atmosphere, after all). It's interesting to note, also, that our eyes almost always focus on the chest and above when observing people (humanoids) at a distance. There are very few descriptions of legs and feet that provide any detail. (Women love shoes but as I often tell my wife, men almost never get down that far!) The "heads" (helmets, long noses, strange eyes, etc.) get almost all of the attention. Just human nature.

  • Dominick:

    What I'm partly questioning is why the witnessed humanoids were wearing helmets in the first place.

    Few witnesses said that the helmets had breathing apparatuses connected to them.

    They seem to have been decorative rather than utilitarian, or a decorative element inside the fantasy (hallucination) of the witnesses. Why?

    Let's Speculate-- Note I am not saying any of the following is true-- the simplest answer might be the events are all rooted in hallucinations-- what follows are speculations. Nothing more or less.

    I'll ask the some questions but in a slightly different context but making the assumption that there was an "outside source" for the percipient's delusion:

    How does a "master illusionist" become a master illusionist? Practice.

    Why does a "master illusionist" want people to see what isn't there? Because there is a reward for having done so.

    Is the illusion real or is it a manipulation of the viewer's perception? It depends on what the source of the illusion is. Here are three possible causes.

    1) *if* "reality as we know it" a simulation How does one insert items into the simulation? Just like any other program-- you write the code and then do test runs to see how the inserted code "runs". Funny hats, monsters, and weird lights doing weird things all might be "coders" hard at work doing "coding tests".

    2) The "illusionists" [i.e. the creators of these quirky apparitions or identifying features] are practicing their ability to "bend the perception" of those who "see" these things. These illusions are "real" in the sense that the "Illusionist" is actually controlling the senses of the percipient. These "Illusionists" would fit into the idea of "mythical beings" [The Elder Race, The Gentry, They Fairies, etc.] sharing the Earth with humanity. [Keel & Vallee?]

    3) The "Stage Magician" spends most of his time pushing the audience to look at some place other than where the "Magician" is actually making his "magic" happen. So "look at my hat" or "my funny shaped eyes" or other feature that human perception might lock on to while the "Magician" does what ever it is they are trying to achieve.

    You'll note that two of the three speculations above are based on the actual manipulation of reality or perception (1 & 2). Another two are based upon the idea of deception (2 & 3). Only one of the above is firmly based in the idea of "reality as we know it" with no "other-worldly cause. (3) But it is also dependent on the deception working every time.

    So once you clear away the hoaxes and actual psychiatric cases, possibilities 1 & 2 remain viable causes for "funny hats", weird 'uniforms', Persons in Black Suits [Mr. PIBB?], a variety of 'humanoid' aliens, or impossible 'creatures'.

    "World of Deception-craft" anyone?

  • Joel:

    You and others haven't been paying attention here, or missed our long-time promotion of UFO researcher Jose Caravaca's elaborate Distortion Theory which posits an "external agent" as presenting such "theatrical" presentations, for what purpose, he doesn't know, nor does anyone (not even Jacques Vallee, who proposes something similar).

    But Jose has provided here and at his Facebook page and Spanish blog a thorough argument, with "evidence" to support his theory.

    You (and others) would do well to seek out his hypothesis (or theory).
