|UFO Sightings – Chasing the Illusion|

I have just finished giving a lecture on the Alien Disclosure plan where I proposed that much of what has happened in the UFO field over the last 110 years may be nothing more than an illusion presented to us to raise our consciousness about the fact we are not alone in the universe, that we have environmental problems, and that Love and Oneness are they key elements of the Universe.
I started my story by pointing out the wooden blimp type airships of the 1890s which appeared over the United States. They disappeared for good around 1897, to be followed by rocket type objects over the Scandinavian countries in the mid-1930s. Like the airships they came and went to be followed by Foo fighters of WW2 which haunted pilots of both the German and allied forces. The foo-fighters disappeared forever at the end of the war to be replaced green fireballs that appeared over the places where the a-bomb and its explosives were being produced. Like the foo-fighters the government was very interested in finding out what was behind the phenomena, but before they could the foo-fighter and green fireball sightings had gone the way of the dinosaurs.
In 1946 the flying saucer and discs would appear. They would stick around through the rest of recorded history up to the present but the falling leaf pattern that they exhibited in the early days would stop. The balls and bumps on the early flying saucers would also disappear.
The late 1940s and 1950s brought stories of saucers dropping down molten metal and angel hair. Today new researchers would be puzzled at the mere mention of such things. The 1950s brought human looking aliens that have messages of nuclear disaster. They too would fade being replaced with contacts with grey aliens stealing eggs and sperm and bring a message of environmental and not nuclear chaos in the world.
The 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s also brought of stories of hundreds of different looking humanoids moving around landed saucers and crafts gathering plant samples or water. They would disappear along with the countless stories of saucers appearing at close range with windows and aliens looking out.
Stories of cars being stalled would come and go, along with one of the biggest collection of reports that has been waved around by researchers to defend the fact that there is physical evidence supporting the UFO phenomena – the ground traces. I and another researchers stood ready in the 1970s to race to the site where a craft would land destroy the vegetation and leave three telltale pod marks. Field training manuals for UFO investigators still teach the proper procedures for dealing with such cases but the equipment is not used and the investigations do not take place. The grounds traces, numbering over 4,000 at their peak have stopped.
Even the long running saucer craft seems to be in trouble. In talking to one investigator handing one of the big UFO databases I was told that triangle crafts are taking over the reports.
The lists of things that have come and gone are endless. The cattle mutilation only started in 1976 hitting a peak in the 70s and 80s. Now today they have not stopped but they are not nearly as frequent. The nests of the 50s and 60s were replaced by the crop circles in 1977. They have continued on unabated probably because it is a phenomena that continues to amaze.
What I discovered in talking to people after my presentation is that many people acknowledge that there may be a component of alien message inside a fancy ever changing box, they are still heavily vested in UFO sightings and that this is much more revealing and important than any possible message that aliens might be sending us.
It occurred to me that that the illusion is “the hook” that whoever is behind UFOs is using to slip the message in the back door.
An analogy that can be used to describe this situation is the person who is amazed and eager to tell his story of seeing a lady being sawed in half on stage and then put back together. A second man listening to the story asked what color the girl’s hair was and gets the reply blond, to which he says, “I saw the same thing six months ago in New Jersey and her hair was brunette.” The two men then initiate a study to find out why.
So it is in the UFO research world where the focus of research has changed from one thing to another over the years. Those behind the phenomena have changed up the magic tricks every ten years or so and that has keep us interested chasing after the illusion. It becomes so consuming for some they cannot change the channel.
Because we have been chasing the illusion we have understandably gotten nowhere, and this leads to the constant complaint in ufology that we aren’t getting anywhere and the media, government, and scientific world ignore us. Around in circles we go. Some quit in disgust, only to be dragged back in by some sort of addiction to watching magic tricks.
Many came to me about their impression that they have been given a message, but that may have been because I am the consciousness guy who will listen to such claims. There are also the experiencers who approached me with songs they have written – music that they believe had a helping hand.
I became apparent from this lecture and from others that I have given that people are still in love with the illusion. This is very understandable. The stories range from the latest sighting photos, to the importance of reported triangles, to the latest UFO documentaries and TV shows that are out or being produced.
We love a good story and will resist any attempt to minimize the sighting experience. We love them and like a radio station Top 40 we have our favorites. These favorites are the ones that every new documentary will rehash over and over year after year. There is Rendlesham, Roswell, the Travis Walton abduction, the UFOs over the White House in 1952, the Socorro, New Mexico landing, the Belgian triangles, and the Cash Landrum UFO where then women were seriously injured. They get rehashed because they are popular and they therefore make for a high rated show.
Alien messages, on the other hand, don’t make good TV, and TV after all is all about attracting lots of people to watch so the advertisers will put up money to slip their message into the story. We’d rather watch action, mystery, and a possible end of the world scenario, as opposed to a simple message that reminds us of a harping mother or a Sunday morning sermon.
The time has come to listen to the experiencers who are getting the messages, taking many of the photos, and whose words are pointing us in the direction of the answer.
 There are burn circle that still get reported but they seem to occur around abductees -
