Unidentified Flying Objects, UFOs, fascinate me. Always have. Probably always will. I’ve talked with a lot of individuals who have seen UFOs - inexplicable things observed in our skies that we can’t explain. I’ve also conversed with many who have experienced what they believe are close-encounters with what some have concluded are interactions with extraterrestrials. Are all of these unidentified flying objects real, or are they nothing more than simple misinterpretations of the prosaic kind? I don’t know the answers to most of these vexing questions. However, I’ve witnessed too much denial that attempts to dismiss all of these sightings as nothing more than visual misinterpretation or as unfortunate aberrant psychological states of mind. Granted, there probably is a certain amount of misinterpretation going on. We are after all only human. To be human is to occasionally misinterpret our surroundings and personal experiences. But can simple misidentification of an object hovering in the sky, or an misinterpreted experience explain all of the phenomenon that have been recorded in the skies or personally experienced? Can all of these other-worldly “encounter” experiences be chalked up to psychological aberrations that would best be handled on the couch of a trained therapist, or perhaps with drugs? It seems to me that something interesting is going on. Perhaps some of these experiences have been occuring for a very long time, and some of it may turn out to be a lot more interesting than misidentified balloons, meteorites, or even extraterrestrial space craft occasionally flitting across our skies performing mundane activities like ferrying weekend “tourists”, or conducting anthropological surveys. Many who have had these “encounters”, particularly those who have had the courage to come to terms with it tend to come out transformed in unique and often beneficial ways. It has lead me to speculate that the ramifications of these psychological transformations may eventually make their way into our mundane society, and by doing so eventually influencing it. Perhaps some of these “encounter” experiences when perceived from a sociological POV have on occasion played pivotal roles in transforming society and civilization in ways difficult to fathom. Perhaps the purpose of some of these personally experienced psychological “transformations” that make up much of the encounter experience play an integral role in the fabric that makes us homo sapiens. I have often asked myself: are these “encounters” really alien interactions, meaning extraterrestrial encounters with beings from other planets? Perhaps in the end we will eventually come to the conclusion that many of these experiences are not so alien after all. However, in order to consider such possibilities we as a society may need to look within ourselves. More to the point, what intimate part of ourselves might we have possibly alienated from ourselves, our soul? We may need to fathom who and what we really are not only as unique individuals behaving as if we possess independent free will, but also from from the perspective of “being” an integral part of vast collective intelligences.
