..are we able to pinpoint when UFOs in the 1940s actually came to be regarded as potential "ET" vehicles rather than foreign spy vehicles?
In the early part of the 20th century, Charles Fort collected accounts of anomalous physical phenomena from newspapers and scientific journals, including many reports of extraordinary aerial objects. These were published in 1919 in The Book of the Damned. In this and two subsequent books, New Lands(1923) and Lo! (1931), Fort theorized that visitors from other worlds were observing Earth. Fort's reports of aerial phenomena were frequently cited in American newspapers when the UFO phenomenon first attracted widespread media attention in June and July 1947.
He basically disagreed with and pocked fun at anybody - theologians, philosophers, scientists - who said that they had any kind of answer.
And then the punchline was, he didn't believe a word of his theories, even when his adherents tried to convince him of the truth of his own conjectures.

Actually there are many cases where the ufos are talked about like they were living things. I wonder though if arnold had "felt" anything to reach that conclusion or how did he reach it in general.
