Encounters With The Phenomenon And Why They Never Go Anywhere

Jason Nuggan


Quote:There is a subsection of High Strangeness known as The Phenomenon. Here is where we find John Keel‘s explorations of the Mothman, Hellier’s search for goblins, Bigfoot hunts where the creature seems to vanish into thin air, Men in Black harassing investigators, UFO abductions, and similar paranormal experiences. It is an encounter with The Other, where the everyday rules of reality seem to break down. It may seem like one is speaking with aliens who wish them to build advanced technology, angels who provide a warning, or ghouls from underground who steal pets.

Yet, when one looks deeply into any of these happenings, they always seem to fizzle out with no evidence, no proof, and no place to continue searching. You go round and round in circles, never actually getting to anything of substance. You’re left with no answers, doubting that any of it ever occurred in the first place. And wondering why. Why you, why this encounter, and why you can’t follow it deeper.

Let’s examine what might be happening, and why its just dead end after dead end....

This category of exceedingly high strangeness phenomena is apparently not immediately associated with the "nuts and bolts" UFO vehicle interactive encounters and sightings.

The following list is of some of the better cases of this latter "nuts and bolts" type, which definitely seem to be of a very high physical technology, thousands to millions of years in advance to our own. This category of UFO phenomena appear to be glimpses of such very high technology vehicles piloted by such very advanced extraterrestrial beings, encounters (some interactive) that definitely occurred in the space-time physical reality we are immersed in, exhibiting technological interactions in areas such as radar, EMI, and ELINT in addition to correlating visual sightings, and even ground traces. 

These are most likely not associated with the very very high strangeness spooks and paranormal weirdnesses, which in my opinion require radically different explanatory frames, and exist as an entirely different existential category of events.

I'm mostly interested in the "nuts and bolts" category. Examples:

 – The 1947 Kenneth Arnold sighting
Except for the WWII “foo fighters”, this begins the modern era of UFOs. A good analysis is at http://www.martinshough.com/aerialphenom...lysis2.pdf . There do not seem to be any valid optical, geometric, geographical, psychological or other reasons to doubt the major features of Arnold’s sighting as reported and they are internally consistent. The analysis results in a range of 16-20 miles, a minimum length of 70-90 feet, and a speed of 890 to 1200 mph. Arnold described the objects as trimmed-off in the rear thin shiny “saucer-like” discoids reflecting sunlight blindingly like metal at certain angles.

Let me dig into my copy of Kripal's Mutants and Mystics...at the very least Ray Palmer whom Arnold worked with on some writings - including  the book The Coming of the Saucers - definitely had some paranormal experiences as I recall...

Though I would not make such a hard line between the odd "supernatural" phenomena and the technological "nuts and bolts". After all we don't really know what kind of technology it would take for aliens light years away to make it to Earth.
