Just for the sake of argument. What effect would traveling long distances have on the pilots of these craft? The pilots, of course, would simply be the pilots; not the inventors of the "advanced technology" craft. Dr. Donald Hebb's studies of the effects of monotony is discussed in his paper The Role Of Experience contained in Control Of The Mind. The studies were based on the outcomes of his isolation tank research. The lost of sensory perspective is the first sense to be reported after individuals emerged from the isolation tank. Dr. Hebb found that a solitary high-altitude pilot (or long distance truck driver or sailor at sea) all report one or more forms of mental aberrations as described by the his undergraduate subjects exposed to extreme monotony of the isolation tank. I.e., the perception of isolation. Dr. Hebb conjectures what could happen in space travel. Such as the "break-off" phenomena. There is a "disturbance of self in which the pilot suffers from an acute sense of being cut off from existence, of losing personal identity and becoming one with the aircraft or empty space itself. Or, separated from his body and felt himself to be a detached mind surveying his aircraft from a point in space, the aircraft now toy-sized and his body a puppet sitting at the controls." I realize much is made about pilot reports of UFOs, but most UFO researchers are unaware of the effects of long distance flights have on the human pilots. Dr. Hebb has a couple of observations regarding "space travelers;" an individual brought up to tolerate the monotony of long distance space flight. I quote: There is the risk "of producing unanticipated distortions of the personality - the risk that such a pilot would have behavior so aberrant that he could not be permitted the freedom of society." What has this got to do with so-called ET high tech flying craft? The craft are claimed to be "intelligently controlled." Ergo, implying a pilot. Depending on where the craft is coming from, we humans could be dealing with pilots exhibiting aberrant behavior. Entities unable to interact with humans in any acceptable social way. It is claimed these entities have been interacting with humans for many years. Dr. Hebb's research goes a long way as a possible explanation of the aberrant behavior of so-called "aliens" interaction with humans. They continue to do the same experiments over and over. This implies that these entities are not very intelligent and are of a low order of mental ability. As suggested by Dr. Hebb's studies of individuals kept in isolation without a change in sensory input. According to Dr. Hebb, the outcome of minimal sensory input creates an individual of low intelligence. Able to react only minimally to a change in environmental conditions. In other words, robotic responses. As opposed to the "normal" reactions and interactions of the irrational human. KK Listen to 'Strange Days...
