UFO Conjectures

We have no idea – none – of what reality really is

Christian Savia posted some links [9/11] at the Anomalist site dealing with concepts about “reality” – he often delves into the matter.
 
And I’ve been hounded by YouTube to click on videos concerning “reality.”
 
My bookshelves are loaded with books about reality: what it is, what it may be, what many thinkers tell us it is, et cetera.
But no one knows what our reality is, and it’s not what you and I experience, or think we experience, every day of our conscious life, “conscious” the operative word there.
 
Philosophy doesn’t help us, in any way, with reality, presenting mixtures of nonsense and multi-plausible ideas that have made discussions of reality as insane as a schizophrenic’s mad ravings.
(Plato’s “cave allegory” indicates, for me, that there is a reality above and beyond that which we experience in our daily lives and existence. But the great philosopher doesn’t tell us what that super-reality is, not a clue or suggestion from him, just comments that there is another reality under which we are subsumed.)
In the context of the UFO phenomenon, I remain hopeful, as most of you know, that an explanation or a “capture” of some kind of the enigmatic things will bring us closer to the idea of what we're dealing with in this life, using the supposed consciousness we are allegedly subject to.
 
For me, UFOs are a harbinger of our real reality, evidence of what overlays that which makes up our seeming reality.
So, tracking UFOs, past and present raises the phenomenon beyond the hobby level. It moves it to the realm of existential (in its real terminology) cogitation, something Socrates insisted upon and members of Jean Paul Sartre’s coterie attempted to discern.
What else is there for we humans to think about? Really?

  • Hello Rich,

    What else is there for we humans to think about? Really?

    When an ‘illiterate’ shaman living isolated in the Amazon rainforest can have a direct access to some 'real' hidden aspects of 'reality' and at the same time the greatest philosophers and physicists can't accept their reality (due to the fishbowl allegory), the only hope that we still have is a (continuous) little help from the other side.
