Hello List members,

Proposal for new terminology to be used for descriptive purposes
when describing "the flight characteristics of the flight and
direction change of groups of UFOs".

While observing numerous UFO activity during the 1990's, there
was one important observation that still intrigues me. This is
the observation of groups of UFO (usually surrounded with a
white haze) that during their flight appeared to be moving as if
with the "same mind".

We are all aware of the flight characteristics of a flock of
birds and schools of fish that are closely grouped together, and
change direction simultaneously while maintaining the close
group formation. This effect seems to indicate that each bird or
fish is "tuned into" some type of "group awareness" enabling
them to react to direction change instantly. Not one bird or
fish takes a different direction or interrupts the intention of
the group as a whole. Total control of the group is maintained.

Unlike herds of animals quickly moving and changing direction,
who seem to exhibit a "follow the leader" type of awareness.
Humans fall under this category also. This effect indicates an
"individual awareness" and one individual can disrupt and
confuse the entire group if hesitation or different direction is

I am at this point in time, unaware of a specific terminology
that accurately describes the effect observed of birds and fish
moving as if with the "same mind". This same effect is
associated with the flight of groups of UFO's.

I propose that this effect of "group awareness of the same mind"
be called the "CARTNIC EFFECT".

Why "Cartnic Effect"?

C = Close
A = Association
R = Reaction
T = To
N = Natures
I = Instinctive
C = Control

This effect is a real one, and appears to be a "natural"
awareness not only used in Nature but also used by the UFO. It
could be directly linked to survival and self preservation
(safety) of the overall group.

Preservation and reduced energy requirements of the individual
when flying in group formation is another possibility.
Scientists state that migrating birds when flying in "V"
formation conserve 71% of their energy during their migration
flight. This could well also apply to the UFO. An "exchange" of
energy in UFO groups is another theory I am working on, and may
post that later.

I ask you to think about the use of the above terminology
proposal and see its use when describing, cataloguing,
investigating, reporting and writing about such an effect.
