Hi Reed,

That's a perfectly logical and easy conclusion to jump to. It's
just so hard to speculate about 'other possibilities' because we
know so very little to begin with. Again, the lack of proper
investigation and follow-up rears its ugly head and clearly
shows the price we pay in ignorance because of the apathy and
politics of the institutions we rely on to look into these
matters for us/on our behalf. (Academic research institutions,
medical researchers, law enforcement, etc.)

Not to mention the fact that experiencers/contactees still have
no one and no place they can turn to for _responsible_ help. We
deal with issues that would drive others completely mad. The
only thing most people can look forward to in terms of 'getting
help' will be to run into _opportunists_ that will exploit them
for their own selfish purposes. There are many more Sinners than
Saints in this business. Landsharks disguised as lambs. Users.
Please excuse the digression.

Well said. But bear in mind that this interpretation of the
material is David's. It may have seemed like an inevitable
conclusion to arrive at for him, and it may in fact be the case
that no other conclusion can be reached, but some one else may
view the same material differently (put it through a different
set of filters) and arrive at a whole other set of conclusions.

Yes, David speaks with the authority granted him by years of
working with this particular 'population.' But for the most part
conclusions are best arrived at by each individual as they weigh
and consider all the available information and possibilities.

It's much better if we each do our own homework and arrive at
our own 'logical' conclusions. It's a hop, skip and-a-jump from
there to consensus. But first, we each need to have a good
handle on what 'we think' is going on.

Enjoyed your input.  :)
