I have been at this ‘UFO’ thing for close to 60 years, and the texture and content of this awareness has changed many times since then. It has changed internally according to my growth and maturity and understanding of the subject. The subject it’s self has grown and morphed into many things and changed also.
The one thing I have learned is that:
THIS IS NOT AN EITHER OR REALITY! IT’S A BOTH-AND REALITY. (in fact, it’s a many faceted beautiful thing)
The question is not: is it, or isn’t it a UFO. It’s not: is this true or false. No, I think, IMO, that as long as the question floats in the quantum superposition, it is an infinity of possibilities and until enough minds collapse that superposition, it will remain that way. (Which leads me to wonder if all of us together comprise a huge quantum computer – metaphorically – that until enough minds are engaged a thing/event/or experience cannot manifest…? But that’s another article…)
You’d think that with all the attention on this subject, there would be a superposition informational field collapse, and that has not happened. So the next question is why not? IMO, like a lot of others out there right now, my feeling is that we are seeing a subject with many sides to it and only looking at a few of those sides, therefore, the phenomena can’t collapse out of the super position, because we are not truly observing it…
Just a thought.
Also, a more daunting thought, what if this whole ball of wax really is a fractal, meaning there are as many sides to this as you could imagine and more – like we are misinterpreting the entire world. Which laughingly I think we are. But it would put off solving the whole equation till the metaphorical end of time. Sigh
There is a branch of study called Hermeneutics which boils down to the interpretation of …. well, interpretation.
Hermeneutics (/ˌhɜːrməˈnjuːtɪks/) is the theory and methodology of interpretation, especially the interpretation of biblical texts, wisdom literature, and philosophical texts.
Modern hermeneutics includes both verbal and non-verbal communication as well as semiotics, presuppositions, and pre-understandings. Hermeneutics has been broadly applied in the humanities, especially in law, history and theology. <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermeneutics
Kinda like how to think what we think and how to determine who has the truest truth, sort of thing. Progressive thought to day kinda side steps this by allowing a personal truth to be truth, understanding that we all have different, although sometimes strikingly similar, experiences of the same thing. Like the allowance for some people to feel that a thermostat set to 68 degrees is just fine, while others feel a chill at that temperature, or five people at an accident describing it 5 different ways. Back in the day, a hermeneutic was the one person who could tell you what the gods meant.
The early usage of “hermeneutics” places it within the boundaries of the sacred.:21 A divine message must be received with implicit uncertainty regarding its truth. This ambiguity is an irrationality; it is a sort of madness that is inflicted upon the receiver of the message. Only one who possesses a rational method of interpretation (i.e., a hermeneutic) could determine the truth or falsity of the message.:21-22 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermeneutics>
Which is what we all see with the experiencer side of the UFO phenomena, or any phenomena for that matter. There is a little ‘wild around the eyes’ of those of us who have been through crazy, but are definitely not crazy. In this instance John Mack would be a hermeneutic.
IMO, it’s going to take all of us looking and seeing together to begin to allow this ‘what-ever-it-is’ to take shape and come out of super position and be. Maybe it is because this weti (what ever it is) is a misapprehension in the first place? Or maybe it takes many eyes and many hearts to see it for what it really is…
Or, maybe it’s just up there hiding…
