From: Alfred Lehmberg <Lehmberg@snowhill.com> Date: Sat, 8 Jun 2002 11:51:26 -0500 Fwd Date: Sun, 09 Jun 2002 12:11:11 -0400 Subject: Alfred's Odd Observation #17 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 presumable. 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.
