Living in the past

Reading the current [6/7/21] New Yorker and the latest [6/10/21] New York Review of Books, while getting notifications of UFO postings on Facebook, I was almost taken aback by how absorbed we all are by past accomplishments and, with UFOs, the old sight- ings and events (the past being as recent as 2017 sometimes).

Artists and writers, with past efforts, are being lauded in the cultural periodicals (for being famous during their lifetimes, but most not so) and many UFO episodes not noticed when they first happened but now getting some attention.

The need for nostalgic remembrances abounds, gays harking back to the queer days when being homosexual was surely hidden but is now, during Pride month, a thing to be celebrated.

Why are we not sparing with the future, where UFOs will be explained and Jacques Vallee will be gone, sadly, as will some of us reading this, and influencers will long be forgotten and the current raft of artists and writers, along with their works, will be long gone and forgotten, not able to reserve a legacy because what is hot today is not worthy to hold the heat of greatness that once was?

(I’ve even forgotten what I’ve read or seen a short while ago, even a few hours ago, including my own dreck. And some present UFO notables today mean little to me and others, already, before they’ve even made a mark.)

 And my point, finally?

 ABC News [6/4/21] along with CBS News and the New York Times and Washington Post are jumping on the UFO band- wagon, regurgitating those AATIP released videos that have been grist for all of us UFO fanatics the past year or so.

No one, even those enthused UFO newbies, is providing anything in the way of new suggestions or hypotheses that offer a possible or probable solution to the long-time enigma.

The extraterrestrial “solution” continues to hog the conjectural environment. Why? Because it’s the simplistic solution, one supported by an ET meme that has supplanted imaginative, innovative, intelligent (intellectual) considerations.

My FB pals are entrenched in the ET trope, and a few buddies here likewise. But ETs coming here in droves, which is ridiculous on the face of it, as Carl Sagan and even Jacques Vallee have said, remains the solution of the day.

Where’s the escape from the past, the mildewed ET explanation, and the slipshod acceptance of aliens visiting here in crashing spacecraft while fooling around overhead and in the seas, for years, even eons?

Let us (we few here who have the image of creative thinkers) come forth with some ideas that can be forwarded to other venues where they might take hold, altering the passive, nostalgic and foolish idea that an advanced species from far, far away are slithering around this planet, and have for millennia, doing nothing but observing the stupidity that has encompassed our species since the first human being emerged from its primitive stasis.

Come on fellows, give it a go, please…..
