Writer, reporter, and paranormal expert Lee Speigel is the former host of NBC Radio’s “The Edge of Reality.” He’s hosted nearly 1,500 programs on unexplained phenomena, and previously worked at Westwood One Radio and ABCNews.com. He is the only person to produce a presentation at the United Nations on the subject of UFOs.
Lee has been a mainstay in the Ufology community for years, pushing the limits of public opinion and presenting information that few choose to investigate, let alone share. He’s been writing for The Huffington Post more recently and his most recent article is quite intriguing. Scientists are beginning to join the Ufology fray.
To paraquote from Lee’s most recent article and comments by Eric Davis…
“They’re wrong, naive, stubborn, narrow-minded, afraid and fearful.” says physicist Eric Davis about other Scientists who are afraid of talking about UFOs visiting earth.
“UFOs are real phenomena. They are artificial objects under intelligent control. They’re definitely the craft of a supremely advanced technology,” says physicist Eric Davis, a researcher of light-speed travel.
The physicist, who recently won an award from the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics for his study, “Faster-Than-Light Space Warps, Status and Next Steps,” knows many colleagues who quietly study UFOs. Why quietly ?
Why quietly indeed? Surely they wouldn’t be timid in sharing their beliefs and maybe even some of their discoveries. Possibly they are more pensive since there natural environment is very critical and wary of things ‘outside the box.’ Lee does a good job in exploring the matter and maintains the professionalism expected of such an accomplished person, but what about a more personal side of the equation.
There is still another area yet unexplored that seems worthy of investigation… contact. Many profess it, but have a real challenge articulating anything that sounds remotely grounded or understandable. It is an area in ufology that seems to have very little attention to date, yet is the topic of discussion in the background of many of the ‘gatherings’ of ufonauts.
Far too many sound like they have ADHD or ADD and have trouble stringing two cohesive unfragmented sentences together. Is it possible that the data downloads or non-linear and non-local events might have scrambled the circuits a bit. Are there any ‘professionals’ qualified to deal with such individuals in order to help them create some order and/or flow to the information they seem to have stored to share.
It is far easier to focus on phenomena, photos, videos and bits and pieces that are semi-tangible rather than move into the subjective areas of real conversation. Taking on the subject is one thing. Finding those who might be ‘qualified’ to speak is yet another. There is already a prolific polarity in the ‘camps’ of ufologists that span conspiracy theory to world evacuation.
What might the vetting process be for such individuals? Like the scientists who are reticent to come forward, might these folks be even more so based on the behaviors they’ve witnessed to date? Would we require them to have advanced degrees or would a carpenter or housewife be considered credible?
It would seem only logical to consider these individuals eventually. What do you think?
