In reference to your first point, I heard a theory a while ago proposing that when you see something that is beyond your ability to comprehend your brain fills in the blank with the most unknown and mysterious thing you DO know about and can visualize.
For example, maybe instead of a UFO we all really saw some type of interdimensional incident. My brain can't process that, 500 generations ago I was chilling in a cave and worshiping fire and praying to trees. So my brain processes the information from that incident as the most mysterious thing I know about, "It's a UFO". Doesn't explain mass sightings, but I always thought that was a very intriguing theory. Does anybody have information on that theory in a formal sense?
