I think that the basic breakthrough for me is to understand that the UFO phenomenon is not a system. If it was a system, we could probably understand it. We're very good at analyzing systems whether they're social systems, hardware systems, or physical systems. I think we're not getting anywhere because we need to look at a phenomena not as a system but as a meta-system.

I think you are wrong and it is much simpler than what you describe to be honest.

Damn that's good.
I tried to say something vaguely similar, but not nearly as accurately, nor half as articulately.

It's not our brains as much as you might think.
Call it tissue memory in our nerve plexuses.

I don't want that future you speak about. It's ripe for abuse.
I do understand that humans have been evolving with technology since
day 1.. and that the most likely human future is near total or total
replacement with machine intelligence.
Only I don't want that future. We need to learn what we are and
realign with a healthy future arc before a machine future, or we
will all be perpetual slaves.
I dare say that it's one of those futures that is messing with us so
badly right now.. that yes, indeed some of those 'spirits' are machine
intelligences. And if I meet one of those intelligences it better
be very respectful or it will be eating circuit boards for lunch.
I think one way to approach the testing would involve 3 markers. 1. Respond in the most likely way expected. 2. Respond in a way that would not be likely to be expected and 3. Do nothing. You would need a way to observe and document the reactions to each of these encounters. As he said it is a really tall order.
And the visitors – a dark and highly active phenomenon that seems to inhabit cracks in the
unconscious, cracks in space-time, and cracks in history – are somewhere close to the essence of
what is happening. Dr. Vallee elucidates the basis of what must surely become a new vision of the
UFO phenomenon, one that will sweep aside the various levels of illusion behind which it hides.
Dr. Vallee argues that the force that now appears in the form of UFOs and attendant manifestations
has emerged into history many times, operating as a sort of control mechanism that has altered and shaped human affairs, often profoundly.
