I have noticed that recently some newspapers, noticeable a few UK ones are featuring a lot of stuff about UFOs and Aliens. Perhaps this is a subconscious reaction to troubling news world wide. I have a theory about UFOs that I offer for readers to kick about.
Throughout human history all cultures across the world have had super natural entities . The human mind has a need to answer the unexplained . Of cause what is unexplainable has changed over time. In the past we constructed worlds of fairy type creatures, some were kind and helpful, some mischievous and some, down right nasty and you did not mess with them. They were taken into account, human behaviour was modified to be respectful to them or placate them to avoid problems in everyday life.
Today we are technical creatures, much has been explained but there are still problems we have no or little control of, things not fully understood. We cannot believe in little people in pointy red hats or delicate floaty creatures with wings flitting on the edge of sight, So we have constructed, highly techno "fairies" UNFOs and aliens. Fairies used to sometimes kidnap hapless humans, they were taken through magic portals, deep still mountain pools or through a special hawthorn tree, right into the fairy world or hall of the mountain king. The humans thought they were in this fairy world for days or weeks but on returning to our world they found they had been absent but a short time. Aliens also kidnap humans usually in a beam of light up to a hovering flying saucer. Things are done to these captives but when they return they have been gone for much less time than they thought.
I have no doubt that many people seeing these things or feeling they have been transported truly believe what they feel was a real experience. I believe that the human mind is a wonderful thing with great powers to create. Science now tells that our eyes only see a part of what we think we are seeing. Our brain receives incomplete "pictures" our brain fills in the space or clues to give us a whole vision we can make sense of. I know, I have difficulty with this too LOL! What we see is what our brains interpret.Perhaps this is all to do with the waves that seem to fill the very universe. My little brain can't cope with the ideas of string theory , quantum mechanics and all that. Could it be that ghosts , when "seen' are slippage between these waves of time? Does this account for religious rapture and visions?
I am not out to offend anyone but these are things that I find interesting and I only question in a search for answers. Does anyone else here wonder on such thing?
