A few things to consider (maybe)

In the past here (and at our other blogs) I’ve discussed the matter of deterministic existence, which is a philosophical proposition: “relating to the philosophical doctrine that all events, including human action, are ultimately determined by causes regarded as external to the will.” [From the internet]

The proposition needs an alteration to make the points I’m stressing, for the UFO topic (and other topics).

Deterministic action requires a force outside ourselves, some thinking that force is God or a trickster or fate, something determining what actions take place or befall humans and life here on Earth.

This competes with the idea of Free Will, but this is not the place to get into either concept, except to delineate my thinking on UFO sightings and alleged UFO “abductions.”

For me Melville’s Moby Dick is the great American “novel” – I actually think it’s one of the great (maybe the greatest) literary creations of all time.

(Those who’ve seen or read my postings here and elsewhere about Melville’s tome might forgive me for the redundancy.)

Moby Dick moves through the seas unencumbered, or would like to. But Captain Ahab, obsessed by the creature pursues it, relentlessly, to the fatal conclusion of Melville’s book that most of you are familiar with.

This has led me to suggest that people who become obsessed with something –anything – will end up in dire straits, brought about by their obsession if, of course, the obsession regards something consequential (but maybe even by seemingly simple things).

For instance, Christians who, like Ahab, pursuing God via prayer and favor-seeking encomiums often end up getting serious illnesses or are subject to various disasters, their God, being probed, bringing, like Moby Dick, perditions of various kinds down upon the heads of those imploring Him for attention (God, uncaring and existing in self-reflective solitude irritated – even as a somnambulistic force – by the ‘attention”).

[Praying to Jesus/Christ is another matter altogether]

Let me suggest that UFO observers or witnesses bring upon themselves their observation or experience by some obsession with an aspect of the UFO phenomenon, that aspect not determined or sought by investigators as it seems unrelated to the UFO experience when, in fact, it is the generator of the experience, something that José Caravaca’s Distortion Theorypostulates, although he hasn’t clearly delineated my suggestion.

Poking God, or Fate, like measuring or observing a quantum event affects that event, makes for attention being given to the poker, attention that can be good or bad, depending upon the whim of that being poked.

In the Mrs. Moreland UFO event from 1959 mentioned earlier here, what caused her to have her experience? A pre-UFO – flying saucer — interest, like that which Betty Hill had? Or a predilection of some kind that fringed the UFO phenomenon?

My point, if you’re getting it, is that some persons are predetermined to have experiences of an oblique kind by virtue of their “obsession” with something related to their eventual experience.

In the case of Captain Ahab it was Moby Dick (or God as Melville suggested). In the case of Mrs. Moreland or other UFO witnesses, their experience is detailed, more or less, by the intensity level of their obsession, whatever it is. (See Caravaca’s examples in his literature or online postings and many of the recounted listings in Albert Rosales’ Humanoid Encounters books.)

(Finding the initiatory obsession is key to my supposition, but as UFO researchers or investigators are loath to actually position themselves to do actual analysis of all details within a UFO event, don’t hold your breath for a denouement of any kind.)
