Someone on earth reports seeing a UFO every three minutes.
Since we are as yet not certain about the existence of unidentified flying objects, what are people seeing? 20 people get a glimpse everyday of something that has not been proven to be there.
I do not know about UFOs, but some of us do see things that are not visible to others. Haven’t we all experienced visualising images in clouds, on sand, even in water? I have a large ceramic vase and somehow I always see a face in it. It is a strange face, but I do not wish to change it. From where I usually sit, it looks the same everyday. It has probably grown into that role and now has a distinct identity.
Does it know about how I perceive it – a person with a quizzical look that might break down on getting answers to unfathomable questions?
This takes us to the territory of how we perceive things and people. Are they what we see or do we see what they are not? Are we forcing our idea of them on their persona? Must they accept it? Do they even need to know?
Sometimes we meet people or come across them and we feel a vague sense of familiarity. Something like UFOs?
To return to the subject, it is entirely possible that people have internalised the possibility of ‘other life’. We suffer from ennui as well as curiosity and since not many are equipped with the spirit of adventure to extend the parameters of their own lives, they look to an outside force. What would anyone get by seeing a weird object flashing past or to report particles falling?
It is about our urge for mystery and the unknown.
Unfortunately, on occasion people dehumanise you by making you into a mystery. You feel like a disembodied person. I have often written about parts of me…that is how it happens. They even distribute you, splice you…because you don’t strip completely. They have not seen you naked; your nude thoughts are just pieces of flesh hanging, clinging to skewers.
Every three minutes someone somewhere sees something that is not there because they cannot deal with what is.
