The human brain figures into everything. Doesn't it? It is the mechanism through which humans access their reality. Ufology and extraterresterials are not exempt from this access. Let's start with the bare essentials: "Processing Sequence as a Function of Time ZERO TIME 0:We recognize incoming information about our current reality. PLUS .00000:We begin to make sense of the input from our five senses. PLUS .00001:We fish out additional information from our hard- wired brain memory modules. PLUS .0001:We reason a little about the information and decide we lack certain essentials to make any decisions. PLUS .001:We insert additional overlay, inaccurate assumptions, and prejudice in order to make it more palatable. PLUS .01:We reach a conclusion regarding our surrounding physical reality. PLUS .1:Assured of the accuracy of our reality understanding, we make corrections to our hard-wired memory, file the conclusions for quick reference in the next check to make sure nothing changes too drastically, and begin the process all over again." Quoting further from McMoneagle: ----- "(O)ur reality is one we in fact invent or make up as we go." How the mind copes with something it thinks it is seeing for the first time should be kept in mind when investigating and reading information from ufo observers and individuals claiming to have been abducted. In some respects, we are all making up reality as we go along. Sometimes, one person's nonphysical reality is not experienced by anyone else. Usually, the individual experiencing contact with the extraterrestrial phenomena have referred to humanity's lower nature. Feeling humbled that their worldview was invaded without their consent. This implies that the human thinks they are in contact with a higher intelligence only because they do not have a prior experience with the craft or entity. Further, the contactee did frame the entire experience as that it maybe happening in an altered state. The contactee immediately jumps to the conclusion that they are dealing with an entity of higher intelligence. Assuming that the entity is of a higher intelligence could very well be erroneous. Based on Arthur Koestler's "Some Aspects of the Creative Process," and reports from abductees/contactees, there is no color in the entities environment implying low intelligence. No music. No art. The entities have trouble understanding a joke. Koestler suggests that higher brain activity involves the appreciation of comedy, puns, satire, and witticisms. The fact that the entities interacting with humans show none of the above indicates they are of a lower intelligence. Of course, they may or may not operate the high tech aircraft we call ufos. The craft could have been programed long ago and far away. Allowing the pilots only to make minor adjustments when called upon. It doesn't mean the pilot created, invented or had anything to do with high tech/advanced aircraft. After researching "alien entity contact" for the last section, I reached a few conclusions: 1.The phenomena operates behind the scenes; 2.It emerges and "communicates" then retreats leaving no physical evidence; 3.The "communication" is unintelligible to the human mind; 4.The human mind immediately begins a dialog within its own subconscious trying to fit a pattern to the event of "communication;" 5.The subconscious/internal communication becomes the reality. It is the reason the communication is referred to as "telepathic." Initially, the fact is that there has been no actual "communication" only unintelligible "messages." This is the reason there can be no solution found for the source of the phenomena. The communications lack coherence, i.e., don't make sense. The Russians approached the enigma referred to as "ufos" somewhat differently than the western approach. Their approach takes into consideration the human thought process as a factor in "witness testimonies." The bottomline is that humans have no idea what they are dealing with. Various researchers have wondered whether the shamanic tradition can provide guidance for venturing into this "other universe." Particularly, Terence McKenna's suggestion of "crossing into a space filled with non-human entities" by taking the path to the "other worlds" under the guidance of a well- traveled shaman. Additionally, McKenna suggest that these non-human entities have been around as long there has been humans. And, maybe, "they" were around long before there were humans. (Author's note: concept suggested in Terence McKenna's "The Archaic Revival," especially chapters five and six - "A Conversation Over Saucers" and "Alien Love," pages 58-88.) Best we be fully centered in our own mind/soul before listening or venturing into the nonphysical reality that may exist. To paraphrase a line from the Christian bible: "we are looking through a glass darkly." One could loose touch with physical reality the longer one stares through the glass. Remember what our grandmas told us? "Be careful what you wish for as it just may come true." The reader is advised to keep the above in mind as we search for just what it is people mean when they say "ufos are real." ----- Some over the weekend reading for interested Listers.
