I agree that is the case in a majority of circumstances. Not all, but a majority. Whether the topic at hand is alleged alien abduction or some other paranormal subject matter, many self- described witnesses indeed prefer the thrill of a chronic mystery to the closure and perceived disappointment of solutions. Members of the UFO community are notorious for claiming they seek truth while turning their collective heads from it when actually presented. You get no debate here, Mr. Kaeser, that a big part of the problem in ufology is perpetuating nebulous mysteries, while a big part of the solution is competently identifying and accepting accurate information. >Finding willing subjects was probably the most difficult part of >this effort, and not the technical aspect that Tom worked on. In and of itself, that seems to be one of the many interesting dynamics of the Ambient Monitoring Project (AMP). In his book Hair of the Alien, researcher/author Bill Chalker quoted AMP project director Tom Deuley (pp 200-201): "Finding subjects was our biggest problem. We at first wanted 60 - in the end we only found 13... There is something very wrong here. With an estimated 3 million or more claimed abductees in the US we could not find 15. Our requirements were high, but not that high. Nearly any medical study can find 1%; we could not find 1/1000%. This may say more than (the results of) our study." For one thing, Mr. Deuley might choose to consider that if the results he refers to are never released, it would indeed be quite difficult for any of the rest of us to comment. Also, I highly dispute the accuracy of the supposed surveys that resulted in estimations of millions of alen abductees in the U.S., but I suppose that is a whole 'nother subject for another time. >I think it's pretty clear that there was no "WOW" event to >spark curiousity. If you are referring to no "WOW" event was reported during the data-gathering phases of the project, I disagree. As previously cited, the following journal entry was apparently submitted (see page 13): http://www.amstat.org/chapters/austin/Meetings/Powell.pdf Also, I have located an AMP volunteer who informs me they indeed reported what would be described as a dramatic event, consisting of entities, while a monitoring box was located in their home. This individual further informs me they have made repeated unsuccessful attempts through MUFON to receive information about the results of their involvement in the project. At this point, the disappointed volunteer would very much like to locate other volunteers and discuss their experiences related to the project. Previous AMP volunteers are encouraged to contact me in order to interact with the individual and I will explain further in another email with a different title. There are many potentially useful and interesting items that could come out of a review of the AMP data. One possibility is that no changes were recorded in the ambient environment during reported abductions. Personally, I would be just as interested in knowing this was the case as I would be in discovering if there were, in fact, anomalous changes in electromagnetic frequencies or similar such activity during reported abductions. One way or the other, I think the data should be made available for public review even if those who hold the data choose to invest no more funding in its analysis or dissemination. >You should make your case with the UFO Research Coalition >and see if they can release the actual diaries kept by the >subjects. Would you be willing to assist me with this process? I would be very grateful for any help you would offer, including both contacting UFORC and providing me information about specifically who I should contact. My past efforts have received minimal results, so I would very much appreciate any help you or anyone else could provide. Regards, Jack Brewer Listen to 'Strange Days...
