Spanish UFO researcher Jose Antonio Caravaca provides his theory (explanation) of the UFO phenomenon
WHAT IS THE DISTORTION THEORY?
Let us try to explain what are the basic principles of the DISTORTION THEORY (DT). One of the main points to be clarified, before starting, is that DT does not defend that the UFO phenomenon has a purely psychological, sociological or hallucinatory origin, all contrary, it is PRODUCED, in the first instance, by the INTERACTION / COMMUNICATION OF AN EXTERNAL AGENT UNKNOWN (UAE), INTELLIGENT AND INDEPENDENT TO THE HUMAN BEING, with a witness that describing experiences with UFOs. To achieve its objectives, the EAU "CONNECTS" with the psyche of the observers to "extract", from the individual and exclusive unconscious of them, intellectual material (found in hobbies, culture, cinema, literature, etc.). The purpose of MANUFACTURING / PROJECTING an FICTION ALIEN VISITATION (for example, landing of a flying saucer and its occupants).
What exactly does the EAU do after "contacting" the witnesses' psyche? After obtaining illustrative and graphic details of the unconscious of the testimony, such as the form of a rocket he saw on a television program, the helmet he used on his motorcycle, or a striking illustration of a clothing he read over in a magazine, EAU, projects a "three dimensional image", but containing in its "aesthetic" the elements "stolen" from the psyche of the witness, but, distorted (Modified / altered). In this way, the observer will see a UFO with the distorted form of the television rocket, from which descend humanoids, with a type of distorted distortion from the helmet of the motorcycle, or wearing an outlandish dress that the witness has seen in The drawing of the magazine (sometimes only find a detail distorted clearly, but can be several as in this example). The beings and the aircraft, contributed by the united "creativity" of the EAU and the witness, are included in a "modifiable base" (a UFO landing), a template mode, which is also contributed by the EAU and Later elaboration of the whole experience. Therefore, it is logical that the descriptions of the occupants of the flying saucers as well as the ones of the own aircraft, contain nuances as diverse and different, in size, colors and forms, from one event to another, Impossible to confront and label, and that come together in a crazy and endless list of alleged aliens and spaceships. Since this is a highly "creative" process, practically infinite in results and possible variants, determined by the participation of the psyche of the observers, as singular, unpredictable and unrepeatable components, in this case, "the extraterrestrial visitor" and "Flying saucer", can suffer all kinds of variations, combinations and alterations typological, morphological or anatomical based on the unconscious information of the witnesses.
But, UFOs leave traces, cause witness damage, are detected on the radar screens, how does this explain the Theory of Distortion? Occasionally, the projections created by the EAU may contain "MATERIA" (which causes projected elements to have corporeity and can produce prints, burns, footsteps, etc.) to make the observers believe that they are witnessing, in situ, the Disembarkation of an extraterrestrial aircraft. The projection CAN BE OBSERVED BY MORE PEOPLE and behaves as if all the elements put into play by the EAU were really there; Humanoids, ship, lights, etc. Moving and acting as independent beings with their own apparent intelligence. A perfect and complete recreation, in each and every one of its exposed details. Even the witness can touch the elements of the scene represented.
Although in many cases the projection lacks matter (or only it possesses at certain moments), and that is why there are a lot of puzzling and "inexplicable" effects during some UFO encounters: the landing leaves no traces, the ship traverses objects Or poles of the electric line) without producing noises or movements, very few marks are registered on the ground, etc. In addition, the projection can be detected on the radar screens and the "energies" put into operation by the EAU can be caused different effects on the witnesses, such as burns, blindness, dizziness, vomiting, etc.)
What happens to the projection when the UFO experience ends? At no time (or before, not during, or after their encounter) is the witness aware that many of the "ingredients" of that scenery (ship form, morphology of beings, behavior, special details, etc.). ) Have been "unearthed" from their own unconscious, but incorporated into the projection of FORM "DISTORTED" so that they are not recognizable. Therefore, it is obvious if when it is a projection, NOTHING of what happened during the UFO experience is due to an empirical reality, nor does it have a physical continuity in our universe after the encounter is over. That is, the humanoids, the ship and the actions recorded during the experience DO NOT HAVE A REAL EXISTENCE, beyond their projection in the face of witnesses. Simply because nothing of the represented EXISTS outside of the illusion created for the momentary occasion. It is a kind of "film" projected before the eyes of the observers. And just like the characters in a film does not have an extension when the footage ends.
What is the external agent unknown? Probably, none of the physical aspects or actions that the EAU exposes in its multiple erratic manifestations before human beings (Marian apparitions, phantoms, apparitions, cryptozoological beings, UFOs, etc.) is a reflection of their true appearance or purpose. And by implying the "construction" of these manifestations involving a person, it is natural that they contain unique and non-transferable details that will not be repeated in another UFO encounter.
But, who or what is the External Agent Unknown? The EAU can be some kind of PARASITIC ENERGY that needsthe human beliefs, or the interaction with people to "feed" or "subsist." It is quite possible that the EAU is the INSTIGATOR of many myths and folklore present in mankind and has used different masks and clothing to appear to mankind over the centuries. Although this "camouflage" is not synonymous with a clever and great psychic manipulation. The EAU using the unconscious contents of the witnesses, it is obvious that the his manifestations have to be SYNCHRONIC to the interests, Thoughts, imaginary and advances of the time. Nor can it be ruled out that, on occasion, the EAU is limited to using local folklore or latent beliefs in society for its own "benefit", developing them in their eventual contacts with witnesses.
Does the EAU influence with its manifestations in the events or in the becoming of the human beings? The EAU uses continuous SUBTERFUGE and TRICKS in its different contacts with humanity and does not seem to want to influence in a veiled way, or make great social, political changes, nor does it seem to show the slightest interest in the future of the human species. The EAU, although apparent to the contrary, does not pretend, under any concept, the transmission of some type of scientific or philosophical message, beyond the knowledge developed by the human being himself in a process that, in reality, is a "feedback" of information. If in any particular case, visitors have interceded or communicated some type of message that has significantly interfered in the future of the witness and its environment, it is because this information was already buried in the unconscious of the person affected by the contact. They could be termed as "side effects" or "epiphenomena" (an accessory phenomenon accompanying the main phenomenon and having no influence on it) of the "contacts", but which in themselves are not the essential objective of the experiences. In fact, in the vast majority of cases, the influence of this type of experience on the lives of observers is rather superfluous and devoid of special significance in a field beyond the personal. It should be borne in mind that, due to pure statistics, due to the existence of a large number of UFO episodes, there is no doubt that the possibility that some of these encounters with the EDA may lead to some kind of change / interference with greater repercussion in The witness or his environment is viable. But it is only a consequence of the presence of a certain person (with great imaginative potential, creative, social, political, business, etc.) that had that information to develop.
Why many UFOs close encounters contain elements absurd and illogical? The three-dimensional projection tutored by the EAU is "produced" by an "unknown mechanism", but in its development uses a process similar to that of dreams where images and sensations are interlaced and presented in iconographic form. Therefore, as in human dream experiences, the absurd factor or inconsistencies are very present in close encounters with UFOs, but that, controlled at all times by the EAU (which acts as the " Director "of a" movie ") so as not to go too far from the pre-set script of the Alien Visitation. Under this paradigm, these illogical pieces, considered by many researchers as characteristic and revealing elements of the undecipherable UFO phenomenon, show their true and naked meaning. They are simply a consequence of the complex mental process arising from the "symbiosis" of the human mind and the EAU, for the creation of projections. Evidence per se of human mental involvement in the creation of disconcerting experiences.
This is the synthesis of the Theory of Distortion.
