Having read a fair amount of books and other material re: the UFO phenomenon, I believe the two deepest thinkers were/are John Keel and Jacques Vallée. Their willingness to sidestep what seemed obvious and probe the question of what UFOs are and where they might come from, outlined directions of research for others to take.
"Today the world powers confirmed that Time and Space don't really exist as real entities, but emerge from consciousness, taking notice of our own experiences. We are therefore creating our own perceived reality about UFOs.
Now, here's Grok with the weather..."
"Thanks, Bob. Well, a cold spell of perceived reality will be approaching from the East..."

What? Please explain again. Interested in what you have to say but that is not clear to me. Thanx
In his recent autobiographical book, Forbidden Science, Vallee summed up his views about the provenance of UFOs, a viewpoint that he's developed through decades of research: "The UFO Phenomenon exists. It has been with us throughout history. It is physical in nature and it remains unexplained in terms of contemporary science. It represents a level of consciousness that we have not yet recognized, and which is able to manipulate dimensions beyond time and space as we understand them." So much for anti-gravity-powered starships ferrying Big Brothers from outer space. Vallee thinks UFOs are likely "windows" to other dimensions manipulated by intelligent, often mischievous, always enigmatic beings we have yet to understand.
Vallee mentions that there are physicists who believe "that time and space don't really exist as real entities," but emerge from consciousness, "taking notice of our own experiences." If this is true, then it's possible that we are creating our own perceived reality, which may open up a new way of approaching the UFO phenomenon.
