Gilding the UFO lily?

My academic crony Bryan Sentes is inputting scholarly pieces about UFOs at his erudite internet site all the time.
I have linked some here and just received a new piece entitled “…the Aliens gave us modern technology…”–a note to The Promethean Lure
And opening thus:
“Despite my critique of a certain tendency in Jacques Vallée’s thinking about the place of the UFO phenomenon in human history, I do find his work consistently compelling and an endless source of inspiration, if only for my more creative work, on Orthoteny.
Synchronicity has recently tossed my way a tidbit relevant to my all-too-brief reflection on the Promethean aspect of the Extraterrestrial …”
Okay, this is academia at its most exquisite sideways approach to things esoteric perhaps, but it’s a good read, for those who like esoterica.
However, while Bryan’s input is not going to get into many UFO circles, sadly, nor even a mention in mainstream circles, its value is immeasurable for those who like thinking that is unique and creative.
But has Bryan (and even me on occasion) dipped into areas that have nothing to do with the UFO phenomenon but clutter it with unintended accoutrements that detract from its simplicity as a mystery?
Yes, a mythos has been created, since 1947 probably, and enhanced by Aubeck, Vallee, and the Magonia crowd n Britain among others.
But the mythos is a roundabout approach to the phenomenon, bringing the enigma into socially acceptable circles, non-academic among them, and beclouding the mysterious things with an aura that has nothing – nothing at all – to do with the phenomenon, which should be addressed “scientifically” not within the societal, economic, political arenas.
While I, and some of you, I hope, enjoy the ramifications of Bryan’s (and Eric Wargo’s) attempts to bring an academic patina to UFOs, we are abetting an attempt to diffuse the mystery beyond recognition.
Yet, I expect that Bryan will bring his material together to provide a meaningful evaluation of UFOs and ufology that enlightens newbies and those who like a scholarly approach to everything extant, even something as flaky as UFOs.
