I just joined this forum yesterday. I've been reading posts and it seems there are some very knowledgeable people on here. I'd like to share my
views with you and hope you will have constructive comments.
I've had in interest in UFOs since I was a kid. At that time I really like the idea that they were coming from another planet or outer space, i
guess there was something fantastic about it like in Star Wars or Indiana Jones. I was wishing I could see one, but at the same time I was so scared
by them that I didn't want to.
However, I was always doubtful about the pictures I had seen from various UFO sightings. I didn't believe in the Roswell crash and preferred to
believe it was a prototype that didn't work well. As I gained knowledge in subjects like psychology, I became more interested in the connection it
had with UFOs.
This led me to investigate the possibility of a psychological explanation, and to the work of Jacques
and his Inter Dimensional Hypothesis (IDH) which does not necessarily exclude the existence of the Extra Terrestrial Hypothesis (ETH).
However one thing that always bugged me was that UFO detractors tend to claim UFO sightings came in mass after Roswell, or the first UFO abduction
case, or even before in some comic books. Their point seem to be that UFOs are some part of modern pop-culture and perhaps a resultant of our
scientific and general knowledge of the universe.
Now what about all the UFO depictions in ancient art? How did these people who had old conceptions about the nature of the universe get the concept
of a flying saucer, or even a plane for that matter. But what is even more strange is why those artist kept on associating UFOs with religious
characters (mainly Jesus and Mary).
Or the old old stuff that is hard to explain:
It seems humans have been seeing UFOs for a long time. If you go here
, you will see the many
representations of angels in catholic art. They are bright and they float in the sky kinda like UFOs.
Angels used to be sent by God to interfere with human business and inspire certain individuals in the course of history.
Today we don't believe in God as much, but there is a comparable mass of unknowable in the universe that lies beyond our sight.
Is it possible that we replaced the unknowable God by the unknowable universe, and rationalized our theories to match our materialist conception of
Our cognition is dependent from our brain. We see what we can; and when we see something we cannot categorize as something we know, we make an
approximation without necessarily being aware of it. The best ancient people could comprehend UFOs was as an angel with wings and light. The best we
can do is a flying saucer.
So I'm wondering if it is possible that UFOs are purely informational content going through our consciousnesses that we are trying to decode with
difficulty. The monotheists religions are founded, I believe, after an intermediary between God and the people has ascended to heaven and brought
back the important message from God. Perhaps this kind of experience has turned into the modern day abductions.
I feel both these events are life changing in some ways that can be similar. I think these abnormalities in consciousness could be the result of a
natural unconscious regulation of our brains, and a remodeling of our "world map," our conception of reality, towards a more positive model. The
content of this brain update would register as a flying saucer because it is how we can comprehend it best.
I hope you enjoyed reading and will share your comments.
