One thing that we do have to be careful of with all things in this field and in relation to TTSA as there is a connection;
The people that are involved with TTSA, have been involved with TTSA previously and indeed involved with UFOlogy since the modern era began; these
people that have always been at the centre of many UFO stories, angles and events. Doesn't it seem odd how they just seem to "pop-up" everywhere?
People like Puthoff, Jaqcue Vallee, Dr Christopher Green, Jack Sarfatti, John Mack, Gordan Cooper , Purharich, Phillip K Dick and many others all
have common links with each other and a very similar genesis of ideas and theories, the original bubbling pot is one and the same even if the
individual recipes have changed over the years.
Some are critical of these individuals but some also put these people on a pedestal and at times it seems to develop into what seems like"hero
worship", particularly with Jacque Vallee. This can be quite a dangerous mindset to enter as all objectivity then disappears and the bias that people
hold as a "fan" of these indivduals seemingly only goes with the theories of these people.
They may be very well educated in terms of numerous degrees and PHds to their name and be successful authors in their own right and have indeed, added
some interesting concepts and theories to the field and topic of ufology; I am not denying that at all, I just think that people need to ensure that
they don't compromise themselves.
There is no PHd in Ufology nor is it widely recognized as a true and proper scientific endeavor by the wider scientific community, we know this! These
individuals that have appeared within this field of research since it began in the modern era are, when looking at this from an outside looking in
perspective are nothing more than fringe scientists at best.
We must be careful with the information that we digest and process that is presented by these people, as there is a commonality between them all and I
believe their reach goes much beyond of what most people are aware of. Puthoff for example, the whole space time metric stuff, there are papers and
interviews going back some 30 yrs with the same theories and concepts by him, is it a lick of fresh paint and all is new again?
People may criticize me for posting a few of the things above, that's fine, I am all for discussion and debate and I don't want to hijack this thread
and turn into a bashing session either.
The reason I felt compelled to bring this up, is the influence and ideas these people have had over the years and most recently and still for some of
them, within TTSA.
Once we start putting these people, subconsciously or not on a pedestal, you inadvertently elevate them in intellect and knowledge above your own and
then...well you are compromising yourself to other peoples narratives and all can be lost at that point.
