That “mantra” – the title above – came from Arnold Schoenberg (pictured) as advice to American composer, a student of his, Lou Harrison [d. 2003], who was profiled by Alex Ross in the April 24, 2017 issue of The New Yorker [Page 18].
The advice would be helpful for ufologists who want to get at the nub of various UFO events or incidents: Arnold’s sighting, Roswell, Socorro, the Hills’ “abduction,” et al.
To extricate the core “facts” of UFO sightings, new and old, investigators would do well to eliminate all the extraneous detritus that encrusts those sightings: third party commentary, accretions by investigators, researchers, and ufological wannabes.
This would take some effort, most iconic UFO cases flush with adornment and accretions that becloud cases. (It’s a form of Ockham’s Razor.)
But if “ufologists” want to find the truth of a case or even an explanation, they have to exclude the draperies of nonsense that have become attached to most, maybe all, UFO cases.
UFO buffs do want to know what UFOs were or are, yes?
Then heed composer Schoenberg’s advice to a musical genius.
