A great post I must say.
I recently wrote an article on my own blog with close to the same subject matter, focusing more on video, without the specialist expertise that you
demonstrate so well. Here is the article- you can find the complete version (with graphic) by googling "Houtchblog."
Ok, folks, this one started rolling around in my mind yesterday afternoon, and I decided to write an article about it. Be prepared, this article is a
little off the beaten path of conventional thinking, but it also accurately reflects my thoughts on this subject. The central idea of the project is:
how to take a picture or movie of a UFO.
This undertaking appears to be rather daunting to me, and expensive. However, given the repeated instances of events occurring during UFO sightings
and close encounters, the following ideas should be taken under consideration:
1. The equipment should include dual night vision video cameras and dual infrared cameras, both zoom capable and both mounted on a tripod with a
stabilizing bar so that should the observers luck out and actually *capture* a UFO on film, depth perception, speed, and object size can be determined
by using mathematics. This also prevents shakiness that so often occurs with hand held cameras, which causes skeptics to sneer. Additionally, the
cameras mounted on the horizontal bar should be calibrated for a slight angle inwards, much like the guns were on a WW II combat plane.
2. Because those who observe UFO phenomena are sometimes subject to kidnapping against their will, hidden cameras should be placed around the site
directed at, directed away from, and unknown to the observers.
3. It has been recounted that UFO sightings sometimes occur in "waves," where multiple sightings occur over a period of days or weeks. Mobilization
and deployment are paramount for the serious investigator.
4. Here's the tricky part. UFO occupants have demonstrated amazing mental powers, such as being able to freeze muscle control, causing lapses in
consciousness, and being able to effectively "erase" human memory of any encounter taking place. Our own scientific understanding of such
capabilities are in comparison, abysmal, limited only to simple hypnosis.
I recall an event reported in one of Budd Hopkins' books- I think it was called "Missing Time." An abductee was being repeatedly kidnapped and
sought a therapist for help. The therapist suggested hypnosis in order to recall the events that were taking place. As an experiment, the therapist
placed a post hypnotic suggestion into the mind of his patient, that the next time she was being kidnapped, she would become fully aware and awake,
and be able to make the following statement: "I am this woman's therapist and I KNOW WHAT YOU ARE UP TO!" According to the account, the woman was
able to break free of their mental grip and confront her abductors. They, in turn, were startled and astounded by this woman's resolve, but quickly
subdued her again, and she was able to relate this to her therapist afterwards.
Therefore, because these beings are mentally powerful, it can be surmised that they would quickly become aware should they be observed. If you are
skeptical, just stare at someone's back for a while and see what they do. In order to increase the chance of success in this study then, the
observers should be hypnotized into believing they would only be recording anomalous, non-living, uncommon atmospheric phenomena; in particular, those
which do not display the lights known to identify earthbound aerial traffic.
5. The US government in particular is notorious for suppressing evidence of alien visitation. One of the soldiers at the Rendlesham Forest incident
was told during his "debriefing" that "bullets are cheap." Therefore, such a study should not be made public with announcements and fanfare ahead
of time, such as with the show UFO Hunters. Should that program ever manage to break a story that is not dependent simply on eyewitness testimony, I
