The accumulation of old UFO (flying saucer) periodicals

Copyright 2021, InterAmerica, Inc.
My pal, the British lawyer/barrister – I don’t know which – Isaac Koi has done and is doing a magnificent job of gathering old magazines, newsletters, mimeographs, and other printed periodicals or sporadicals about UFOs and flying saucers from earlier eras.
His accumulations, available online for everyone, is splendid and a thankless effort as there is no remuneration, economically, or immaterially, most not aware of the hard and time-consuming work involved.
But has anyone gained anything worthwhile or explanatory about UFOs from these erstwhile efforts to put down, in print, valuable, useful information about the phenomenon?
No. Otherwise, we wouldn’t still be struggling to cope with the enigma.
UFOs, as a phenomenon, are at the point where only a “hands-on” discernment will resolve what they are, their genesis, their purpose, perhaps.
Only Ron, here, seems to understand that.
Recent and ancient debates about God are similar: all the colloquies about the existence or not of God do not provide – nor ever has -- an explication of the supposed divine entity.
Thus it is with UFOs, except that UFOs have a tangible reality, whereas “God” never has, except as I note in my Substack pages about the “god” that was never God.
We need a UFO, in hand, to get at the essence of the things. (Maybe there are a number of kinds of UFOs, a many diverse group of phenomena, but that seems unlikely, or does it?)
Perusing those old printed pages offer nothing to clarify the UFO mystery just as the theologies and Bibles of old have not clarified or proved there is a God.
But Isaac and a few others keep the worthless paper intact and extant, and for that we should be thankful, should we not?


  • Cataloging history is never a bad thing. In that regard, Koi provides a great service. Ufology, unfortunately, spends most of its time living in the past rather than focusing more on where we go from here.

    If tomorrow the supposed (and at this point almost mythical) photo of the the flying triangle taken by a Navy pilot during the recent off-shore encounters was made public, then run the gauntlet of derision and indifference, it likely wouldn't reveal means and certainly not purpose. It's not enough.

    This has always been an all or nothing game. Anything less than a full reveal is ultimately meaningless.

  • It may be that the reviewing of old cases are akin to being a movie buff, one who prefers the golden years of cinema based on long gone actors and directors...a comfort zone, or mental security blanket.

    Yet here you are and others (me presently commenting) looking for the Holy Grail...an enigma that may well be real or equally may be a long held fixed delusion.

    One rationale approach of "starting over" is to omit those cases resulting in the urinating in the pool syndrome: Roswell. Omit it as if it never existed...out of sight out of mind. This long tomb raided tale only leads to despair, false leads, and end stage intellectual insanity. You, we, should really give thanks to those who perpetuated the Roswell Slides myth as freeing one's soul from such mental debauchery.

    Here's to intellectual freedom (if such truly exists) allowing a more reasonable approach to the issue.

    Yet you and others will ultimately be tethered to the old history of cases as that is the nature of academic research...navigation 101? You need to know where you've been, where you are presently and ultimately plotting where you hope to be in the future.

  • Thanks Tim...

    You know I usually agree with you and do here.

    Roswell irks me, and I hated that the Einstein thing ended up swathed with it, even though it wasn't directed mentioned by the interviewee.

    Yes, the past is necessary prologue to the future but my point, which I submersed a bit so as not to offend Isaac, was that no one is using his finds and saved library. They are just hoarding the material, usually unread.

    It's analogous to The Canticle for Leibowitz.
