Not being a qualified person in either the fields of Ufology or
psychiatry, and not yet fully across the wide range of
information regarding the former, I tender that the words I had
with you a few weeks ago Eleanor, regarding the Truth and people
not wanting to know it, are ringing true... it is commonly
referred to as 'denial'.

This quote, supposedly from a military pilot (and yes, I believe
made of or into 'sterner' stuff), after discussions regarding
the _re-entry_ of an Unspecified, Unapproved, Untested, Unknown,
Unreleased, Unacknowledged FO.

"I would rather take a rocket ship to Hell than to go back
inside that craft."


What message does this convey to 'the common man'?

If you think about our own psyche and be really honest, do you
now look at people of Middle Eastern appearance with a different
view than you might have before 9/11. I know I do, and I
apologise to the 99.9998 % of the people of that origin who are
innocent (the well known majority, who have anything screwed by
the minority).

Does this sound familiar... I would put the rampant skeptics in
this former minority group.

As affirmed believers we are operating from an underdog
position. The skeptics have the power as they have the 'donkey
vote' (the default vote of denial, apathy and ignorance). It is
about marketing...VHS is the much preferred and common video
format, but professionals use (better) BETA format... you know,
those big bulky things that used to have movies on them <g>)

I personally believe, if we want to raise the profile of Ufology
in the public eye, we need the eminently credible Ufologists
like Kevin Randle, Stanton Friedman et al, to focus public
debate on the somewhat more believable and substantive issues
like the relationships of Government facilities, that
surround/adjoin the landings/crash sites of UFOs and include
the high profile cover ups of the 40's and 50's.

Add to this the possible reasons for the location of sites like
Area 51, as we currently understand them, the relationships
between Boron, nuclear reactors and blistered skin, coloured
lights and dizziness, lost time and memory, stopped watches and
power drain etc.....

At the risk of seeming insensitive, we need to raise the issue
to a 60's Vietnam-type awareness. The leadership and guidance of
these aforementioned believers is crucial. Show and tell us the

Critical mass and collective knowledge is what is required here.

There has been considerable debate, on this List, regarding the
validity of photographic evidence which, lets face it, can be
doctored/conjured up by anyone with a PC and an image
manipulation package (just ask the preeminent doctor, Mr.

And if you don't believe people get a kick out of their name
being up in lights, just take a count on the amount of computer
viruses detected each day across the planet, numbered in their
thousands if not 10's of thousands.

The chances of anything coming from Mars..... but still they

Best regards to all,

Peter van Hyum
