I would like to see UFOlogy (or whatever we are calling it), remain the primary focus of ATS, next to Ancient Civs, of course, which seem to be the
bread and butter.
But I am afraid that if we don't switch tactics we are going to remain dead in the water.
We can't possibly allow ourselves, after all of this time, to be hung up on waiting for some single piece of evidence to 'just prove they exist'.
A new way of approaching the matter has
been making itself clear, little by little, for me, it seemed to start here...
The Men In Black(OPs) The Aviary and UFOs
The emphasis that these people place on the UFO phenomenon is not on nuts and bolts craft and evidence of same, it is on the social effects of the
phenomenon and how it can be controlled, and ultimately on how we can be controlled through narratives and stories and the manipulation of our power
to suspend our disbelief, individually and collectively.
So with that in mind, let's us hear from the only guy in the bunch that had our best interests at heart, Jacques Vallée...
From: Messengers of Deception. 2008
"The social process caused by the belief in the [UFO] phenomenon takes the form of new sects, movements, and "contact" cults. Close observation of
these cults shows that they are monitored and in some cases deliberately manipulated by occult groups, government organizations, and extremist
The group of people who will first manage to harness the fear of cosmic forces and the emotions surrounding UFO contact to a political purpose will be
able to exert incredible spiritual blackmail.
I believe there is a very real UFO problem.
I have also come to believe that it is being manipulated for political ends.
And the data suggest that the manipulators may be human beings with a plan for social control.
Such plans have been made before, and have succeeded. History shows that having a cosmic mythology as part of such a plan is not always necessary. But
it certainly helps.
Unfortunately, this is going to require that the whole community retool and get up to speed on stuff that they never thought they would have to
software has more to do with what you need to know to keep up these days than
searching for some missing link that will provide evidence.
