Alfred's Odd Observation #17 (Saturday -- June 8, 2002)

Outside visibility here in oppressive Alabama has been as
transparent as a dirty buttermilk-glass, the humidity as
overbearing as Nipple-napper Ashcroft's justice department, and
all the effects of global warming are centered, seemingly,
squarely on my exact geographic coordinates! Only the bugs are
held in magical abeyance by the Bounce rag; however, or I would
assuredly be driven indoors.

Still, they fly.

Oh admittedly, they don't fly grandly, conclusively, or even
brilliantly of late... Still, they fly.

And it's a taste ironic for me as, lately, there's a lot of
impassioned discussion about UFOs all going "away", going "out",
or going "beyond." "Abductions are decreasing," some
pontificate. "Sightings are down," others pronounce. Forgetting
for a moment that this gets the CSICOP Youngbob/Sheaffer
  skeptibunkies capering around gladly like frolicking wood-
nymphs, it really only apes some kind of sweaty bandwagon many
seem to be jumping on... in some 'king-of-the-hill' attempt to
be 'first' proclaiming some 'new reality' regarding UFOs...?
  Specious stuff and turgid nonsense.

I see it as chasing a false plausible in a furtive attempt to
only 'appear' cutting edge. I see it as playing into the hands
of the transparently deceptive. I see it as pandering to the
misleading and embracing, too greedily, the flatulent
ostensible. I see it as courting the readily sophistical,
incorporating the onerous captious, or being at best shallowly
pretentious and at worst in 'evil' retrograde. It favorably
considers a falsehood, and it associates itself with the
absolute weakest of what's all too easily or most conveniently

Sightings are "down" friends and scabrous bunkies, not because
UFOs are going away, but because there are fewer people LOOKING
for them these days! Lately, people who might otherwise be
pondering the skies are, instead, only looking over worried
shoulders for 'enemies', real AND imagined. They have no TIME
for a puzzling enigma in the skies over their heads while
staring down the suggested barrel of a terrorist's gun! All
part of the master plan (uneasily?) dismissed by Jerry Clark?

Conscious or unconscious (and given less and less protection
from already tolerated sociopaths by an authoritarian
Bush/Ashcroft administration) it's not a _completely_
unreasonable proposal. It's only a relative few that
inordinately gain as a result of our aggregate ignorance, after
all. Sociopaths ARE. Socipathy IS. Discount them and the
conspiracies they busily precipitate, at peril.

Let me assure the interested reader that sightings are not down,
abductions are not decreasing in frequency, and the artless
bunch over at CSICOP has no hint of vindication what-so-ever.
Youngbob and Robert Sheaffer should cease their tiresome
capering and return to their think-cloaks, nineteenth century
runes, and outdated CSICOPian Newtonics. The universe continues
to resonate with a 'quality' of life undreamed by them as
strange moving lights unsteadily traverse a steady starfield to
MOCK the cast aspersions of those that would wish them away.
Rock the head back to a crisp night sky with a modicum of
revealing patience and be rewarded with proof of the larger
reality that _will_ be there.

These occurrences that the mainstream will only trifle with come
in 'WAVES' that even a conflicted mainstream cannot ignore
without blowing its cover (its facade or thin veneer of
pretended rationality or open-mindedness). These waves are
_well_ referenced by Ruppelt, Hynek, and Vallee in decades of
literature. They've been going on since time in memorial and are
captured on non-faked film, recorded in credible historical ink,
and chiseled into ancient and unyielding stone.  These waves are
likely older than our DIRT!

The history of UFOs truly parallels our human history. Though it
is decried, minimized, and derided by our suspicious social
convention, the facts of their existence creep out around the
edges of the coffin lid that the garden variety CSICOPian
employs to contain them. This should give us all _more_ than
mere pause to entertain a suspicion that some larger reality is
being denied every one of us. _Something_ certainly is.

UFOs are valid, it is our mainstream denial of them that is not.
Evidence of them abounds; verily, it gushes from founts. It is
photographic, historical, credibly anecdotal, and very personal
for many of us. It flies in the face of the denial of it. Only
the irrational fear of a knee-jerk reactionary, culturally
conflicted, and philosophically myopic leadership would deny the
patently obvious. UFO's are real. They exist and have existed
since before the first human being banged one rock against the
other. We are _not_ alone. Everything _else_ is a fantasy,
ironically -- a concoction, invention, or convenient illusion.

That's enough. I remain watching our skies. Read on.
