(Before It's News)
I’m reading The Social Conquest of Earth by Pulitzer Prize winning Harvard Professor Edward O. Wilson, who is an expert on evolution and insect societies.
You know my fascination with ants, bees, and other insects that create and live in communities that rival those of humanity.
(Of course, most everyone thinks that such creatures derive their life-styles by way of instinct. I think there’s more to it than that. Instinct is a kind of thoughtful, intelligent behavior, and I believe Professor Wilson might back me up on that.)
But that for another time….
My perusal of the book and other work by Professor Wilson made me realize UFOs and alleged encounters with “beings” that occasionally debark from craft described as UFOs act not in unison with other UFOs or have team members alongside them when they are found landed on the ground.
Social insects (like those noted) work in unison and for common goals.
But UFOs never work (or rarely do) in tandem. The bevy of “flying saucers” reported by Kenneth Arnold in 1947 seemed to be flying in formation and with co-operative intent.
But not those captured on film by Delbert Newhouse in 1952 over Tremonton, Utah nor any of those cited and filmed over Mexico, UFOs splattered in the sky, willy-nilly.
And how often have UFO encounters been reported where creatures or humanoids have been accompanied by a second or third UFO that “lands” with team-members to help scour for flora or fauna?
You might argue that Earth’s astronauts went to the Moon solo and will probably go to Mars without a partner ship or ships containing others.
But UFOs are purportedly from advanced civilizations, traversing the Universe or our galaxy, looking to examine Earthlings or the substances of Earth.
If such were the case, they’d hardly arrive solo. That would be dangerous and ETs are supposed to be intelligently “advanced.”
Even Earth’s “secretive” military units, such as SEALS (and others) are supported by concomitant forces operating covertly but close enough to provide technical backup even if they are not in proximity with a unit that is about to undertake a mission.
Of course, the idea of “motherships” escorting UFOs and their crews might answer my skepticism, but where are the supposed motherships nowadays? They have disappeared into the ether of UFO sightings, just as the onslaught of “beings” have disappeared from UFO reports/sightings.
Human behavior, like insect behavior, is social in nature, whereas UFO behavior is not.
That’s a flaw in the UFO ET believers’ pronouncement, unless you can come up with an alternative conjecture.
