UFOs: There’s something to it, but what?

Copyright 2017, InterAmerica, Inc.

Reading through Michael Swords’ book (pictured) of Center for UFO Studies cases gathered by John Timmerman one can see that there is something profoundly odd that is lumped under the rubric The UFO Phenomenon.

I’d like to instill UFOs as phenomena, rather than a phenomenon, as one can see from all the sightings extant, which the book above lists, that UFOs are not just one thing but many things.

That’s what’s so delicious about Professor Swords’ listing of CUFOS reports: they tell us that UFOs have a reality, not just an ephemeral existence in the minds of people, and that the UFO reality is multi-faceted.

Sure, I’m advocate of a neurological or psychological reality for UFOs but I’m convinced that within the vast canon of UFO accounts lie real observations and experiences that seem to show a phenomenon (or phenomena) worthy of the tagline “actual” or “real.”

The CUFOS gathering, presented by Michael Swords, contains every kind of UFO sighting we UFO buffs are familiar with or have read/heard about: disks, cigar-shaped craft, weird lights, triangle-shaped vehicles, amorphous entities, et cetera.

What intrigues is that the reports cited come from regular, normal folks, not "wackos" or psychotics.

That UFO sightings may be created by something affecting the neurological elements in a human brain is fine but to accept my pal, Bryan Sentes’ call to see trace residue after a UFO event as substantive, one has to agree that mental hallucination or neurological malfeasances can’t account for some documented sightings. And I do. (Grassroots UFOs provides examples.)

UFOs fascinate because they offer a multi-reality much like that with quantum particles: existent corporeality that becomes incorporeal when looked for (at) seriously. (Google Heisenberg)

Some say UFOs don’t exist or that UFO reports are flush with errant accounts, the latter easier to skeptically address as UFOs, defined by sensate persons, obviously exist.

Of course UFO witness testimony is befouled by the clumsy recollection of those who see and were excited to see something that could be called a UFO.

But at the core of UFO reports rests a mystery, one that belies mental illness or criminal intent; people don’t usually lie about what they’ve seen or think they’ve seen.

Even misperception can be set aside. No group of human beings can misperceive within the quantity that UFO sightings supply. The odds are against it.

Get the Swords book – it’s only a few dollars (about $16 when I last mentioned it here) – and indulge yourself in a swelter of UFO sightings that indicate there’s something to UFOs, something real, unknown but tangibly real.

It will bolster your UFO interest, even if the idea that UFOs are ET vehicles isn’t particularly mentioned.
