I am not, so therefore, I have no access to the first citation. The paper linked in the second URL I have downloaded for weekend reading. A superficial scan of the References indicates that Delanoy cited from Hornton, Hyman and Blackmore. I suppose to lend balance to her research. I did notice that she was co- author on a couple papers with some of my personal favorites: Baud, Radin, Tart, and Wiseman. There is a number of research projects looking into the _mind_ effect which should have a bearing on the solution to ufos and the paranormal events. Just a brief note: where are the comments from the ufo heavies on this matter. Jerry Clark recommended two books. One, Varieties of Anomalous Experience Examining The Scientific Evidence was way out of my price range even on Amazon's used book list. Friedman is totally silent. I have to wonder what that means. Beware of contemplating how the observer might actually be creating/participating in the phenomena? KK Listen to 'Strange Days...
