I tend to think that the "answer" to a lot of UFO sightings is to be found in the odd, fringe cases. Where people see much stranger things than
just a simple flying saucer floating by. It also makes me think that a lot of sightings by people of other phenomena such as Bigfoot, fairies and
leprechauns, lake monsters, demons and angels, and so on, are possibly related.
You gotta eventually ask yourself, "Where do these things go?" and "Why do they leave behind so few traces?" A lot of the time, they literally
just seem to vanish
. Which is impossible, right?
Well, it's impossible if you think that time and space are solid like a road, nice and concrete and moving in some direction. But if time and space
are more like a bubbling pot of water that interacts in some subtle way with your consciousness, the movement of little quantum fluctuations in your
head, then things popping in and out of reality doesn't seem so ridiculous.
This might also help to answer another question you have to ask yourself, which is, "Why are they so different?" Maybe it's because they're not
quite what we normally think of as real, even though we can see them and take pictures of them and so on. They're somewhat
real. And because
they aren't entirely real, their shape and movement depends a lot on what the quantum activity of our minds add to the mix. And since each person is
different, UFOs tend to be different. When they are seen by more than one person (though they're usually not seen by too many people at the same
time, which is another clue) the witnesses tend to "sync up" their perceptions and reframe the experience so it matches up. We do it all the time
when we see movies, or anything unusual or extraordinary. We ask other people what they thought about it, and that greatly influences how we perceive
and perceived it, ourselves.
Look at the Stephenville, Texas, sighting. The most noteworthy thing I think about it is that the descriptions are very different. So maybe
something appeared in our spacetime reality for a short while, but because it was so foreign to it, everybody who perceived it experienced it a little
I don't know if there's anything to this line of thought. I'm just speculating. But after a while of thinking about the subject conventionally,
as aliens from Mars, or wherever, it just doesn't get anywhere. Time to think about it in a new way, maybe.
