Thats the whole question just what is real?
What constitutes a thing as being real, is easy, you see it you touch it, and know about it, and so do others. And what constitute real in videos is
the same thing, you dont see people calling a video of a lion pride as a hoax now do you, because if wanted to one can go out and see said lions.
The second thing people take as real in videos is if some higher authority is saying its real. Now if this same video or even the ones with nothing
but squiggly lines and pixelated out of focus of dots flying in the sky was released by NASA and they said this is a UFO.
Well there would be no question from people that it is real and they exist. You may even have cults spring up if they did that, even though nobody in
said cult ever actually saw one. I mean more so then there are now that is.
But if a guy posts his picture or vid online of the same thing, well then its just a out of focus hoax. And if its crystal clear that you can see the
nose hair in people noses? Then its off course CGI,it may be good CGI, even extremely real like CGI, but ultimately still CGI. Hence not real.
So ya, in the end the only thing videos of UFOS or aliens prove is that videos of UFOS and aliens exist. And then offcourse that brings in the whole
question of what is real on video, leading to such things as the moon landings or even if space is real. But thats another thread, one that has been
done to death as well.
After all if seeing is believing, then it could be just as likely that everything else is merely accepting a wildly accepted mass believe. For all
intensive purposes, may even be a religion. And what is a religion you ask? Or I did, just there. Why! A religion is that thing that people
believe, which they don't really know why they believe, but they believe it anyways.
The very real definition of religion indeed. But the bells and whistles people like to use, while being more fancy sounding, actually mean less.
So ya just what is considered real? An actual phenomenon that everybody or a good percentage of people can see with there own eyes, or something that
is accepted as real on a mass scale because they seen it with there own eyes or can experience it in one form or another. Pretty much that may be the
only thing that can be said to be real. After all nobody is disputing the videos online about tornadoes or cats or trump.
But then again. Dont forget that not that long ago it was wildly accepted that there was a man in the sky who watched everything, and before that,
well there was a pantheon of people in the sky who watched us. But in the end that may have only existed in the collective heads of certain peoples.
And believe it or not people believed that to, some to the point of death. But even if they believed in a god or gods and died for it.
Well it does not mean anything beyond that, that they believed in it, and they died for it. And people today still believe and die, and will die for
what may amount to but a wildly popular and mass approved believe.
So what is real?
As for them landing in Scotland yard for a chat, or at the white house. Well if they exist, they obviously do not consider any of this of any
importance as they don't even stop to say "hey" as they drive by, now do they? In fact they dont even change course or break speed, they may not even
care if there seen or not for all we like to think that there being sneaky, they may not even know the meaning of the word, they could just be
operating on a different level, that is all.
In fact if they exist they may not even notice us, or care, so aliens in UFOs chatting up us, looks about as likely as us chatting up gofers we
glimpse in a field while on long car trip to wherever it is were going.
And if its all hoaxer? Then you got them every few months trying and plying there craft for some wacky reason even though it is quite obvious that
videos prove absolutely nothing, years and years have proven that by now, and why make such crappy videos anyways? There are 15 yr olds out there
who have the computer skills to make better CGI, much less better blobs on a out of focus screen. And who knows it could be even others consistently
keeping this thing alive for whatever reason. Like some bad glitchy, artifact prone to shaky camera and blurry low resolution cult, or who knows what.
And even that is not likely.
Or it could mean absolutely noting, not everything has to have a meaning. In fact in the grand scheme of things most things if not all things. Have
no meaning. One day they are simply there, then the next gone. We give things meanings, and even that will be gone once were gone. So in the end,
nothing really has meaning.
And so, ya. Forget about answering the question. Just what is real? When answering the question what is a real video may be out of our grasp. Just
more reasons why the only thing that UFOs on video prove, or will ever likely prove, is that UFO videos exist.
Which is why everytime there is a video like this or others. What is the usual and first response to it?
How can any of it, ever prove anything else is more the question. So what data can one gather from a video? Compression artifacts? Date stamps? If
something moves a certain way or shadows on the ground, or bugs in the foreground, a flock of seagulls in the distance perhaps. Ya like all of that
not be faked, and its more like why would anybody even bother, since even if it was real, whatever that means. It will just be automatically be taken
as fake anyways.
Compression artifacts, Seems kind of almost pointless in the face of things. And it seems that way, because it is. I myself personally prefer
swamp gas or Chinese lanterns, or maybe even lighted drones. Though those are not as popular now a days it seems.
But its those little touches that make things interesting, kind of like adding tits on bigfoot, or bigfoot suits, just to spice things up. But in
the end, just what do people consider to be real. Is a simple question to answer, its an elementary question.
