An interesting interview with vallee on kgra,brand new 2019 interview from lee spiegel
Just finished listening to the whole show, which also served (for comparatively ignorant folks like me re his work) as a useful summary of Vallee's
life since his own UFO sighting as a teen in 1955 during the 'unavoidable' France flap of 1954/55. I agree with him that little has changed within
this mystery since then (aside of course from his own theories of a potential unknown intelligence's control system), and that his 1978 speech to the
UN would more or less be exactly the same today. As he says, patterns are recycled - even Hynek's term 'Invisible College' is a modern iteration of
the UK's Royal Society roots.
Jacque's database management skills and analysis of UFO wave patterns lead to undeniable proof (whether based on reality or a misunderstanding) of the
sheer concept of an intelligence having an influence on our species, and opening our minds to alternative consciousnesses 'out there', ie the
so-called world-wide "hidden impact", irrespective of associated jokes, giggles and Roswell burger-bars.
I feel his frustration with folks such as Condon who privately believe there IS indeed something to study yet publicly deny it because it wouldn't
stand scrutiny by the National Academy Of Sciences. Jacques, of course, believes we DO have the tools to make a cogent case, if not 100% water-tight.
After all, some illnesses remain an eternal scientific struggle for answers, but any progress towards understanding and curing them is worth it. Is
the importance equivalent? Arguably yes, I'd say, albeit towards different goals of vital human knowledge. As Jacques says, science is all about the
Unknown, so why exclude UFOs?
IDH-wise, it's always interesting to hear Hynek and Vallee's musings about another universe existing five minutes ahead of us, with potential
intelligences who dismiss such paltry earthly obsessions such as light-speed and distance with a simple click of their teleportation button. After
all, Space and Time may indeed be negotiable.
I shuffled uncomfortably when the Nimitz affair was approached, Vallee seemingly accepting TTSA's 'star case' without question, and even throwing a
few peanuts towards the controversial 'THREAT' theory (to be fair, he focuses on injuries caused by close proximity, rather than HG Wells-style
'attacks'), but his point about government classification of UFOs is important: the global importance of radio transistors was never classified, so
why should UFOs be? He's nevertheless careful to explain that when he worked with Hynek in the 60s, Project Blue Book files were never classified as
Top Secret, except to protect names and projects.
Meta-materials remain a frustrating enigma with no firm conclusions attached, despite the levels of pure magnesium sometimes found therein (such as
Brazil's 1957 recovery), the eternal question of "Why?" underlining Vallee's thoughts.
