The only major shift I’ve noticed in recent years is a general transition away from firm postulating of UFOs as solid, tangible, piloted objects (that also happen to be “flying” and remain “unidentified) to a more ethereal, vacuous, and elusive “Phenomena” or “Consciousness”.
All of the current UFOlogist trough-feeders like Greer, Cameron, TDL, Lind M. Howe, etc., etc, are all jumping on this now. My guess is that since none of them for decades have been able to definitively provide us unwashed masses with anything resembling solid, concrete evidence, and they haven’t been able to convince their ‘contacts’ or ‘informants’ to do so either, they are simply learning to play a new musical instrument.
Other than the ubiquitous photo or video clip of a distant, tiny, grainy, out-of-focus, utterly indiscernible speck of light in the sky – we got ‘nuthin! Toss in the occasional abduction human-interest story, and/or a rare ex-gubbmint, astronaut, or gum-shoe confession tale – and you can churn and burn some dollars out of hungry apes like you and me -for a while…
So, the material is getting thinner and more vaporous – time to change the “tune” a bit: It is the only way they can stay relevant (and keep lapping milk up at the UFO love-fests). So now, prepare for the paradigm shift to “Consciousness” and the “Phenomena”.
UFO’s are now NOT necessarily spacecraft driven by extraterrestrials, NOR are they necessarily sekret black aircraft, but rather, a form of “consciousness” that wishes to “commune” with us. The UFOs are “manifestations” of our collective “ethos”.
…The money will flow once more: a von Daniken or clone will write “Consciousness of the GODS”. Giorgio and his pals, like Wilcock, Redfern et al will have a new series on the History Channel, “Ancient Consciousness”, and the UFO conferences will host dozens of “experts” and “researchers” to lecture us about our “feelings about UFOs” and how they may ‘appear’ in response to telepathic or other inquiry.
Personally, all I would like is a straight, factual, no BS, no fluff explanation with accompanying verifiable evidence so we, ALL of us, can finally move humanity forward in the right way. The matter is indeed significant – but hardly settled. Just my opinion, but the current crop of UFO-pundits just seem to be continually spewing the same hot air. No substance, no real truth, no evidence.
The whole UFO thing has been a giant joke played on us for decades. Perhaps by design. I’d like to know who is orchestrating it and why. Somehow I don’t think our collective “feelings” and consciousness is the answer. It will just be the theme in the next wave of books, conferences, and AM radio fodder. It’s just more wool over our eyes -and it keeps a handful of interested Pied Pipers moderately employed while leading us away from the real explanation…
…keep looking up, my friends!
