Daniel Brenton, author of The Meaning of Existence and all that blog, has written another insightful, and reflective, piece on UFOlogy. Not only UFOlogy as UFOlogy, but all of us in here.
Like Daniel, and so many other bloggers out there who write on UFOs and Fortean things, I’ve had a fascination -- and personal experiences -- with UFOs and related things since childhood.
Brenton brings up the idea of ‘value’ in the context of a personal involvement with UFOs; all this blogging, writing, more writing, discussion, exchanges. A search indeed.
He also brings up the complicated matter of abductees and experience as well as UFOlogists, among other things.
It’s the “truth” and, as my favorite philosophy professor said to us years ago, the truth is different for each of us. Many call that a contradiction, others a paradox. Either way, it’s the truth. (hee.)
Whether one brings the personal to all this in terms of experiences of UFO sightings and all manner of paranormal/Fortean stuff, or the personal in the sense of . . . just themselves, somehow, their willingness to share some of themselves in their research, studies, documentation, it’s all good, it’s all needed, it’s all valid.
Most of all, it contributes in a real (or “truthful”) way towards this journey.
