Jung and Cook

You are aware, are you not, of a book the great CG Jung wrote, called "Flying Saucers: A Modern Myth"? He said in it that flying saucers are nothing but psychic projections, born of the conflict in the psyche of Modern Man between his personal consciousness and the underlying collective unconscious.

What do you say to this?

I don’t doubt some men see flying saucers that are actually only the products of their minds. Jung was obviously writing about these sorts of men. He wasn’t writing about flying saucers that are as real as the car you drive.

You see, unbeknownst to nearly everyone, Jung appeared to have accepted *the physical reality of at least some flying saucers*, and that they may be from extra-terrestrial civilisations. He didn’t talk about this in his book, though, because he said in so many words that real flying saucers weren’t his area of expertise; only the imaginary ones were.

Have you ever seen a TV documentary called *UFOs: The Hidden Evidence*?

Funny you should ask, but, yes I have, and it was only last week.

It pulls, does it not, the rug from under you and others of your ilk, who think flying saucers don’t come from earth? I mean, this documentary leaves a powerful impression on the viewer that flying saucers are man-made, and so are from earth. Has it convinced you of this?

No.

Whyever not?

While the man who made this documentary appeared to have wanted his viewers to think that man-made flying saucers explain all flying saucers, he didn’t actually say all flying saucers are man-made.

Keep in mind, this film’s maker is a mainstream journalist, and his film was made for a mainstream broadcaster. Given that Alien flying saucers are today’s Great Taboo, the film’s ideological slant would be expected.

I agree, however, with the film’s maker that the object that appeared to crash at Roswell could have been an experimental man-made saucer. Given Roswell’s nearness to a top secret military base that housed hundreds of German scientists, and that Germany had been experimenting with saucer-shaped craft, and that the Roswell crash was so soon after the War, these German scientists just may, in their new home, have continued their flying saucer experiments, at least for a while.

However, it’s obvious these putative flying saucer experiments came to nothing, otherwise the flying saucer would certainly have become as much a part of America’s military arsenal as did the atomic and hydrogen bombs, the anti-missile missile, the stealth aircraft, and all the other state-of-the-art military paraphernalia.

So, to imply that flying saucers seen today doing all those amazing things in the sky, seventy years after the War, are man-made, is just silly. 

The film’s implication that the “Foo Fighters”, which so many fighter pilots from all sides saw, were a German secret weapon, is also just silly, for no evidence has ever been unearthed that the “Foo Fighter” was in the arsenals of any of the warring nations.

Even supposing the Foo Fighters were a German secret weapon, what use were they? I mean, they didn’t even try to ram, or didn’t even try to shoot down, a single Allied plane.

So then, you think the Foo Fighters were of extra-terrestrial provenance?

Given they seemed intelligently controlled - thereby ruling out swamp gas and ball lightning as causes of the phenomena - I think they were Not From Here, and that whoever sent them was concerned about the destructiveness of the war-weapons wielded.

Consider the testimony of a number of American military men who have manned nuclear-missile silos, and who have seen *large balls of light* hovering over the silos, and that seem to have caused the missiles' operating systems not to work.

The Aliens - if Aliens they are - appear worried about what we could get up to with our terrible weapons, for we could use them in space, and thereby threaten the well-being of those who live Out There.

Bring Up The Bodies

I’ve just finished reading Hilary Mantel’s “Bring Up the Bodies”. I didn't find it easy reading, but then I hadn't found “Wolf Hall” easy reading either. Is this because I’m not clever enough to have found them easy reading, or is it because Hilary Mantel deliberately made “Wolf Hall” and “Bring Up the Bodies” not easy reading, so that their readers thoughtfully savour them in small bites over many weeks instead of wolfing (sic) them down in a single day?

I’ve come across people so clever, they routinely read a book a day, so that over a year they read more than 300 books. I wish I could do this, for there are so many books I’d like to read, but never will because I won’t live long enough.

I wonder, though, whether those clever people who regularly read a book a day, could read all of “Wolf Hall” in a day, and the very next day read all of “Bring Up The Bodies”. If they could, how much would they comprehend? Perhaps, then, they might need as much as two days for each. As it was, I spent a whole month on “Bring Up The Bodies”.

Because it won last year’s Booker Prize, and so was written about and spoken about everywhere, I probably don’t need to tell you what "Bring Up The Bodies" is about, but I will. It’s about King Henry the Eighth, and all the trouble he had to go through to rid himself of his second wife, Anne Boleyn, because he wanted to marry Jane Seymour. 

If Anne had been a Miss Goody Two Shoes, it might have been even more trouble for Henry to get rid of her than it actually was, for, despite being a King, he needed good reason to get rid of her. Fortunately for Henry, Anne liked to flirt with the young men in the Royal court to such an extent that it gave observers reason to think she was sleeping with some, among them her brother.

In those days, if a Queen slept with a man not the King, it was borderline treason, and even more so if the man not the King was her brother. Also, it was said that Anne had told at least one of the men she allegedly slept with that she wished Henry was dead. For anyone, let alone a Queen, to say this was definitely treason, and punishable by death.

It was one thing to suspect Anne of sleeping with these young men, and another thing to prove it. However, standards of proof in Henry’s time weren’t quite what they are today. And, anyone could be made to confess anything if they were put on the rack, which they were in Henry’s time if they didn’t say what law enforcers wanted them to say. Indeed, the law enforcers of Henry’s time had a freedom of action that would make today’s law enforcers green with envy.

Hence Anne, and the young men she allegedly slept with, were always going to have their work cut out for them if they were to avoid an unpleasant fate.

One of the things reading “Bring Up The Bodies” may do for you is make you glad you didn’t live in the England of Henry the Eighth, even if you were Henry himself.

What Did the President Know?

“Roswell” is the name that’ll be forever associated with the UFO phenomenon, for it was near Roswell (New Mexico) in July 1947 when an Alien-operated flying saucer allegedly crashed, then was retrieved and taken away by the American military authorities. There was even talk of dead Aliens - assumedly the crew - being found near the crash site. Do you believe any of this?

Before I answer your question, may I say how glad I am you said “flying saucer”, rather than “UFO”? I need hardly remind you that “flying saucer” and “UFO” don’t always mean the same. While a “flying saucer” is a “UFO” until identified as a flying saucer, only some “UFOs” are “flying saucers”. Hence I can’t help but become irritated when people say “UFO” when really they mean “flying saucer”.

But, hasn’t “flying saucer” become a joke in the minds the masses? I mean, “flying saucer” doesn’t have the gravitas of “UFO”, does it?

If “UFO” does have more gravitas than “flying saucer”, it’s no longer much more. Hence “Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon” (UAP) is now the preferred term. Soon, though, “Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon” will become as much a joke as “UFO” is becoming, and yet another term will have to be coined.

You see, the “UFO”, “flying saucer”, “UAF” phenomenon, is today’s Great Taboo. As with all taboos, the UFO taboo must therefore always be treated as a giggle. Hence the tiresome references to “little green men” whenever UFOs are written of in the Popular Press. I could go on about this if you want.

Later perhaps. Meanwhile could you answer what I originally asked? Did an Alien flying saucer crash at Roswell?

I believe at least one did. There may have been a second too. You doubtless know of the famous headline in the “Roswell Daily Record” of July 8th 1947, that said *“RAAF Captures Flying Saucer On Ranch in Roswell Region”*. The article said the saucer had been found by a rancher, who told the police, who told the military authorities. However, the next day, July 9th, the paper reported that what the rancher had found was not a crashed flying saucer, but merely the remains of a downed weather balloon.

While the RAAF (Roswell Army Air Field) probably did retrieve a crashed flying saucer at around this time, it wasn’t from from the ranch of the rancher in question, but from somewhere else nearby. The debris the rancher found had extremely odd characteristics and had likely been jettisoned from a damaged flying saucer flying overhead, that finally crashed thirty or so miles further on. This was the saucer the army retrieved. The story about the weather balloon was a ruse by the army, put out to deceive the public, for the usual obvious reasons.

You talk only about a retrieved flying saucer. But, according to the *Eisenhower Briefing Document*, the bodies of four Aliens were found two miles from the crash site.

The Eisenhower Briefing Document also says the rancher reported a crashed saucer, which he didn’t. He reported strange debris. And the Document says the saucer was recovered on July 7th, whereas it was likely recovered on July 4th.

While these two misstatements are not that important, it’s likely a document prepared for the President of America wouldn’t be as sloppy. These two misstatements, as minor as they are, only add fuel to the already existing suspicion that this Document is a hoax.

However, because the Eisenhower Briefing Document may be a hoax, doesn’t mean Alien bodies weren’t found. If the crashed saucer had had a sentient crew, it’s likely they were killed in the crash, and their bodies found amid the wreckage.

ETs, Germs, and Oxygen

What do you think about the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure, that took place last week in Washington?

It revealed a lot of information that showed beyond all reasonable doubt that flying craft Not From Here have visited Earth, and continue to. Sensational news, you’d think. However, the Popular Press (otherwise known as the Mainstream Media) treated the hearings as a joke. But then, should you be surprised?

You talk of flying craft Not From Here. But, someone must fly them. Is it not likely, then, that the pilots would also be Not From Here?

You shouldn’t assume pilots fly these craft. They could be unmanned and remotely controlled from other planets. Think of the unmanned Mars Rover that is remotely controlled from Earth. If, though, pilots do fly these craft, why should they be biological entities? Why shouldn’t they be robots?

Think of our own robotic technology. Quite human-looking robots are already being produced, that can speak and act intelligently. Before too long, we’ll be producing robots that look so human, and will speak, think and act so much like a human, that if you meet one, you won’t know it’s a robot.

If you saw the film, “Blade Runner”, you’ll remember the Androids - completely human in appearance, speech and demeanor, only they are even more intelligent, better-looking and athletic than the average human. Because of these qualities, female Androids were much sought-after by human males.

At the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure, evidence came forth that suggested Extraterrestrial beings were retrieved from crashed flying craft, like at Roswell. *This video* is fascinating. It shows an elderly former CIA man in obviously very bad health, talking about when, as part of his official CIA duties, he had seen ETs held captive at the famous and mysterious Area 51.

It’s indeed a fascinating interview. Assuming this man is telling the truth (and why shouldn’t he be?) it’s possible that what he saw were ET-built humanoid-looking robots that had piloted the crashed flying saucers from which they’d been retrieved.

Had they been sentient, they would have needed to breathe, and it seems unlikely they could breathe the earth’s atmosphere. The Human, after all, can’t breathe the moon’s or Mars’ atmosphere. So he must, when visiting the moon or Mars, bring oxygen.

Then there’s germs. How likely is it that sentient ETs would be immune to the Earth’s germs? Only if they had developed the appropriate vaccines, which, come to think of it, isn’t impossible if their medical science is far in advance of ours.

(To be continued.........)
