A great Fortean writer and researcher...and his books are fun to read. Some quotes from Disneyland of the Gods, pb 1988, for discussion:
"The major lesson of the ufo events is that the source of the objects is occupied with deceiving and confusing us."
"The ufos do not seem to be part of some intergalactic system at all but are closely related to both mankind and the earth itself."
"All of the manifestations of the past have served one primary purpose. They have advanced belief in some theological, philosophical, or technological concept , and supported one of the many frames of reference employed to hide the real nature of the phenomenon from us."
"We are like ants trying to view reality with very limited perceptive equipment and then basing our theologies and philosphies on what are essentially misperceptions.The real problem is that there is a much larger reality around us that we can not see but can only sense. While we grovel on our way to the 21st century someone or some thing is watching with amusement . Like Columbus, we don't know where we've been, where we're going, or even where we are."
