Lately in UFOlogy and related topics everything seems to revolve around consciousness. It’s a buzzword with almost a magical meaning, but is that
really the case?
What is consciousness?
It seems research is making big progress in what it actually is. I posted this video before and if you haven't seen it I suggest you have a look:
(I can post a synopsis for those unable to see video's later)
Possible consequences in research
If we look at different cases we notice there is a lot of diversity in how people perceive UFO’s/UAP or even high strangeness in general (see the
Vallee-Davis model posted by posted ctj83 in the Rendlesham topic as a reference). Is this diversity proof they are all hallucinations?
We would have to keep that in mind, but because of the physical aspect in some cases this is highly unlikely (debatable!). However since all we
perceive is so heavily influenced by our backgrounds, beliefs, zeitgeist, etc. we must take notice we are working with contaminated data because of
this. How do we deal with this?
Maybe stepping away from quantitative research and going to qualitative research is the answer?
Possible applications in technology
This also brings forward some ideas you hear often in UFO stories, and all of a sudden they don’t feel so magical anymore.
Be the craft! If you can make your consciousness believe it IS the craft, you’ll take away the fact that you have to read dials, but in stead you
just 'feel the values’. You don’t have to move the stick to steer, you just move. This would be a big advantage in (unfortunately) war
applications, but could also be used in our daily lives.
Another thing I’m thinking of is 'augmented camouflage’. For those familiar with augmented reality, it’s very similar. If you cross the
boundaries of human ethics and find a way to manipulate perception when seeing/hearing certain patterns, you can hide things in plain sight. QR codes
flying around? Well yes … sort off.
Consciousness isn’t something magical, but could be used to make us believe something is. Could it be this type of abuse allready is going on, or is
it the direction our technology is evolving into? Or is it a combination of both or neither?
This all raises many questions, so feel free to add, discuss, brainstorm, lurk or even laugh!
