With all good investigations, it's important for the investigators and detectives to ask the right questions. Perhaps modern science needs to ask
different questions about ufo sightings, aliens, and abductions. Perhaps a more appropriate question would be: Why do certain people see ufo's and
some don't. Why are particular individuals abducted?
Maybe the most interesting phenomenon is why human beings would conjour up these fantastic sightings? If ufo's are figments of our imaginations,
then why do we do it? Why do we produce these hallucinations in the first place only to be tormented (and most are) by the memories thereafter? Why
does the human imagination produce such spectacular figments with the peculiar similarities of most ufo sightings?
Why make up a story that you know will only be met with ridicule and people rolling their eyes in disbelief?
The standard answers don't work for me. Obviously, many ufo witnesses are mentally ill with schizophrenia, various psychoses, bi-polar disorder, or
paranoid, etc., and some are just jerking us around. It's only after you account for the obvious that you are left with hundreds of reasonable
people that have experienced a very unusual phenomenon in and of itself. The real mystery is why do they do it?
Personally speaking, if it's all in my imagination, I can't think of any advantage that I've eeked out of conjouring up the 4 ufo's that I've
seen. If that's what is happening in my psyche and in the thousands of other eye-witnesses to ufo's, then the study should begin right there. If
it's true my amazingly fertile imagination produced these illusions, I haven't been able to comprehend what benefit or "take home message" I
should be feeling. What I feel is frustrated, exasperated, and driven to try to make sense of what I saw by reading everything I can about the
subject and searching for answers. Seeing these ufo's is always in the back of my mind.
In addition, I'd like to say "thanks alot" to modern science and the medical community (forget the government in this equation) and all the self
described "Einstein's" (no offense, Albert) that offer up their lame brained answers and empty conclusions that ignore the bigger questions and the
deeper meaning that will continue to escape us all as long as the current mentality persists. Footnote: I don't see it changing any time soon.
