I have been soaked or dampened by UFOs (flying saucers) for most of my long life, a life longer than I express if I can avoid doing so.
(I noted, once, a thing I did years ago, and I lost a raft of followers, people who are prone to ignore geezers, as I do, usually.)
In my UFO sojourn the one thing that is palpable, blatant to me is that there is little or no refinement or culture in the UFO community; that is, I have rarely, if ever, met a cultivated, cultured, refined person inside the UFO society.
I don’t know, today, any person in “ufology” that I consider a sophisticated, urbane individual.
What spurs me to write this was a request from well-read, as far as I know, Terry the Censor who suggested that I provide links to my book-review sites, some new and one that’s been around for a long while as cognoscenti know.
To provide links would be, for me, casting pearls before swine, something I feel I often do here, at this blog.
Now I’m not being obtuse with this minor rant. TIME magazine, in its, current issue [4/24/17] for its page about books accented a hot book, Monsters in the Ivy League, that outlined, by the authors (Spy magazine staffers), a slew of Ivy Leaguers they know who they class as ne’er-do-wells, liars, criminals, wimps, anti-Semites, et cetera.
Currently, persons deemed to be less than what they pretend to be, are vilified in academic and social venues, including notables in the arts, old and new.
Since this blog is centered on the UFO community, ufologists, I felt it was necessary to point out that the category, ufology, is riven with ne’er-do-wells, and uncultured waifs, persons who wouldn’t know a Paul Klee painting from a Disney logo.
Mentioning Charles Ives’ The Unanswered Question, a musical “essay’ about the plight of humans in the Universe – something that UFO buffs feel also, if they have any sense at all – has never brought comment, making it clear to me that UFO readers here and generally have never heard the piece.
A posting I made about the important clues to relationships and situations in classical music that clarify those relationships and situations – insight of which could be applied usefully in ufology — went unnoticed, even by persons who sometimes list my postings in their amalgam of sites that paranormalists might find interesting.
The post ignored because the persons seeing it understood, subliminally at least, that UFO people and paranormalists were not refined enough to get the message intended.
UFO people are clods pretty much. Yes, that’s a generalization that holds true as I see it, and I can’t imagine anyone coming forth to “debunk” my view.
They don’t have the wherewithal to do so.
