“What We Have Here is a Failure of Imagination….” – Skunkworks


Quebec scholar Bryan Sentes leads off a series of intellectual musings about matters ufological. Sentes wearies of repeated extrapolations of supposed alien intentions and degrees of direct or indirect alien-human “interactions” from a sample of (in a sense, actually, less than) one. He suggests, instead, “sociological scrutiny” upon what he considers more mundane, and important, issues of human belief. Miguel (Red Pill Junkie) Romero tests the unitary assumption of human thinking in Aliens and Hopi Time: Understanding the Influence of Language in Human Perception. “Tenseless” languages challenge the notion that all humans sense their surroundings in the same way. Romero applies this to understanding different human cultures and also how to approach the paranormal. Sentes returns in Revelation in Reverse, or Myth, Synchronicity, and the Collective Unconscious, rather taking up this discussion of time but going beyond it. It doesn’t matter to his argument that his startling Seti I temple at Abydos “helicopter” image example likely results from misunderstood archaeology and perhaps hucksterism. And Rich Reynolds’ podium once again is borrowed for the article Distortion Theory: The Witness As Co-Creator Of Ufo Close Encounter Experiences. Here Jose Antonio Caravaca emphasizes what he regards as the uniqueness of each reported CEIII (UFO entity) experience, and points out weaknesses of “the psychosocial hypothesis” for explaining such reports. While admitting that his postulated external agent is “indeterminate,” Jose argues that the results of its interaction with the human psyche are similar to more familiar patterns in altered states of consciousness, Shamanic journeys, space-time independent physical and mathematical laws, and the like.
