Everyone should be putting up a "wall" or block and scrutinizing
whatever is being picked up in the environment. Let's call it
critical thinking. The ability to step back and review without
getting emotionally involved in the outcome.

I think you, Ray, should be just as wise as I am. I think that
all UFO researchers should be as wise as I am. That is, the
collecting of cases has been done. Okay, now it is time to
reinterview some of the "witnesses" in light of new break
throughs in human psychology, neurology, and all the many
'ologys' that claim to study humans and their perceptions.

Things are not as they seem. It just might be both simpler and
more complex than we thought.
