Ed,

As a former MUFON editor I was the recipient of some of
Bearden's impenetrable, "scientific" writings. They were, as far
as I could tell, all "trappings" and no substance. In short,
classic pseudoscience. Pretentious and chockalok with vast
arrays of mathematical symbols. Science at least attempts to
explain, or to hypothesize and theorize, not obscure and
obfuscate.
