Having read all the authors cited in the article, and have thought about the role of mythology as a basis for approaching a solution to the UFO phenomenon. Myths are a part of an individuals worldview whether it is acknowledged by the individual or not. Thanks also to Carlos Reis for presenting his opinion. KK Listen to 'Strange Days...
