Where's the UFO "wow factor"?


Frank Warren’s UFO blog has an interview with a colonel who says he saw a UFO crash in Mexico some years ago:

Frank Warren blog account

Notice how blasé the aged colonel is as he relates his tale.

When NASA scientists and technicians land a rover on Mar or achieve some other outer space deployment, they, en masse, get giddy and child-like in their enthusiasm.

NASA, and other achievers (such as Olympic winners and their families) become hyper-emotional during and after their feats. The élan infects bystanders and participants alike,


But when flying saucer observers, and the Roswell contingent in particular, like the colonel above, remain unenthused, prosaic, and typically example a severe case of ennui, even though they say they’ve experienced something profound, transcendental.

Joseph Capp, a peripheral ufologist, exalts UFO witnesses; they are the crème de la crème of the UFO community he thinks.

But why are those witnesses so becalmed in the wake of their potential epiphanous experiences?

Where’s the élan that the NASA people exhibit when they partake in things that have much less of a “wow factor” than a UFO sighting or crash (with alien bodies)?

Just as we promote the idea that Truman, alleged MJ-12 members, military personnel, and other government operatives remained too ordinary after they saw UFO debris and bodies from flying saucer accidents, in Roswell and other places, so too do we challenge the psychological aftermath of UFO witnesses and abductees.


If they’ve all experienced what they say they’ve experienced, and they are not suffering a kind of war-like stress syndrome, or mentally acute state of denial, these people are creative automatons, with stories that don’t make sense in the light of their apathetic recounting of their stories.

It just doesn’t make psychological sense.

So, the Roswell “witnesses,” Betty and Barney Hill, Travis Walton, Frank Warren’s colonel,et al. can be dismissed, entirely, despite the attempt by Joseph Capp and others to gild them with laurel wreaths.

Their passivity has done them in…..

UFOs and Quantum Entanglement


A current view of quantum entanglement, where “particles” travel faster that the speed of light – 10,000 time faster, may be read here:

Einstein’s spooky action

How might this impact the UFO mystery?

UFOs have often appeared and disappeared in fractions of seconds, with little rhyme or reason, or so it seems.

Bruce Duensing addresses the matter thoroughly, and intellectually, and you would do well to pore over his explication at his blog:

Intangible Materiality

UFOs act like quantum as we noted several months back at our UFO Iconoclast(s) blog;

UFOs are tangible quanta

But lets take the theorizing further…

If UFOs appear in the sky, then it seems likely that UFOs will be appearing elsewhere, simultaneously, and behaving exactly as their counterparts.

That is a UFO in England, near Sussex, might be entangled with a UFO above the skies in Melbourne, Australia, and appear and/or disappear, or move laterally exactly the same way, in a kind of quantum tandem, but at a distance, just as quantum “particles” do in the entanglement hypothesis of Quantum Mechanics/Theory.

Taking the observational data of sightings and comparing them, via computational techniques – à la Bruce Maccabee – could determine if UFOs act like quantum artifacts or not.

This is where a ufological discipline is needed, an attempt to be scientific, and isn’t that hard to do.

Who’s up to the task?

Duensing? Friedman? Vallee? Tonnies? Us?

UFOs and the Truman Syndrome


MJ-12 advocates contend that Harry Truman instigated the Majestic group and was privy to the alleged flying saucer crash near Roswell, New Mexico in 1947.

Let’s assume that the is all true…

How did Truman react to the Earth-shattering revelation that extraterrestrials were visiting this planet, and had provided tangible evidence of those visits, with a clue to their technology, when they had an accident over the New Mexico skies?

Truman seems have been to be nonplussed.


He didn’t rearrange his life or the Presidency in any inordinate way, even becoming more mundane and folksy after leaving office.

During the 1947-1952 period of his Presidency, Truman contended with lots of Earthly matters, including the Cold War, the Korean War, Communists in the United States government, establishment of the Jewish State of Israel, domestic crises (labor strikes, taxes, etc.), and his daughter Margaret’s imbroglios with critics of her music-making.

Truman didn’t react to an interplanetary visit as a normal Earthling would. He virtually ignored the supposed intrusion (as did his successor, Dwight Eisenhower).

Truman, if he did have access to flying saucer crashes and other UFO events, he wasn’t affected by them, privately or publically.

Truman lived until the end of 1972, never altering his daily existence or snarky attitude toward news media and the public generally; he remained an Earth-bound S.O.B. right up to his last days on Earth.


(Eisenhower, who followed him in Office, played golf regularly, obsessively, and also wasn’t affected by the insertion of an inter-galactic alien presence that many ufologists say he was aware of, even having communicated with some extraterrestrials held captive at secret military facilities.)

The Truman Syndrome may be described as a lackluster reaction to life on other planets that had the temerity to visit Earth on various occasions, making their presence known by accident and/or direct contact.

This is where ufologist go haywire. They make MJ-12 a reality but the patina of those documents and the committee that forged them doesn’t ring true: those involved remained oriented to everyday life, in ways that indicated nothing out of the ordinary had been experienced or occurred during their sojourn on the so-called Top Secret Majestic committee.


If flying saucer/UFO beings had come to Earth, these men, Truman mostly, would have reacted differently, in overt ways but, more importantly, in subtle ways. And those subtle ways would have been discerned by observation and scrutiny of their lives. This didn’t happen.

And there is no evidence of changes in behavior or lives, by others who were provided information and proof that alien visitors had come to Earth, and were here in droves by some estimations.

Truman was a folksy curmudgeon during his Presidency and for all of his life, right up to 1972, well after the Betty/Barney Hill event, the Socorro episode and dozens of other UFO manifestations.


Would this be the case if he had knowledge of an alien presence? Would Truman have gone about his life, after experiencing a UFO reality, in the way that he did, oblivious to the ramifications and impact of an extraterrestrial visitation, maybe many of them?

We think not.

So, for us, MJ-12, and a secret, government cover-up of actual flying saucer accounts seems outside the realm of how humans would act – even political types – if such things were true.

Where is today’s McMinnville UFO?

The May 11th, 1950 flying saucer sighting and photo by Paul Trent and his wife in McMinnville, Oregon provided a clear photo of an object that looked to be alien in configuration:


But was the “object” a real space-craft, from elsewhere? Or was it a prototype by the United State’s military?

Or was it a model which ended up being a template for the Rouen, France 1954 saucer…


or the saucer seen in the 1977 photo allegedly taken in Hamburg, Germany by Walter Schilling; a photo which the UFO Iconoclast(s) once indicated was a “lost Trent photo”?


The point here is that UFOs like the Trent saucer have not been photographed since the 1950s, the Schilling UFO picture notwithstanding, which proves that the Trent photo was a contrivance (hoax) or the UFO seen was just passing through the Earth skies for a short period of time….four years or so.

(The Schilling “Trent” photo appears to be a model from analyses of the “flight pattern’ and proximity to the ground, which like the “authentic” 1950 Trent craft – exegetically examined by Bruce Maccabee – shows a bizarre angle for air maneuverability.)

So, either early UFOs transmogrified over the years, which we (and others) have suggested previously, or UFOs (flying saucers) from various places in the universe or time have appeared to Earthlings and then moved on -- some of them anyway.

Or the Trent photos were faked, along with the Rouen photo and (certainly) the Schilling 1977 photo.

(Go to UFO Casebook for a plethora of saucer/UFO photos – some authentic and many not.)

Whatever the Trent’s captured – real or not – no recent or present sightings of UFOs have produced photos as clear as the McMinnville shots.

(Well, you have seen the “drone” UFOs but can discount them immediately.)

So, we’re either back to or beyond square one in many ways….
