UFOs may not necessarily be “objects” nor could they be “flying” – – Dr. Jacques Vallee

keelvallee1

(Dr. Jacques Vallee with John A. Keel – – “Human beings are under the control of a strange force that bends them in absurd ways, forcing them to play a role in a bizarre game of deception” – Dr. Jacques Vallee)

by Norio Hayakawa, September 24, 2016:

Surprising as it may sound, after all my personal efforts of many years in researching and investigating “UFOs”, I cannot even come close to stating what is truly behind this phenomenon.
It still remains a mystery to me.

However, after all these years, the bottom line in my view is that we have yet to come up with a single physical, solid, hard, tangible, irrefutable evidence to conclusively prove that the UFO phenomenon is physical manifestation of physical extraterrestrial spacecraft (with or without physical extraterrestrial entities as its occupants) from beyond this earth.

You can name all the cases you want:
Roswell (1947)….. Rendelesham (December, 1980)….. JAL Flight 1628 case over Alaska (November 17, 1986)….. the Socorro incident in New Mexico (April 24, 1964)….. Betty and Barney Hill (1961)….. Travis Walton (1975)….. The Phoenix Lights (1997)…..etc., etc., ad nauseum.

But again as I stated above, this is the bottom line:

We have not come up with any single, concrete evidence to prove beyond a shadow of doubt that some “UFOs” are “nuts-and-bolts” physical craft operated or manipulated and occupied by physical entities from advanced extraterrestrial civilizations.

This is why I came to consider that the entire phenomena could even be some form of “psycho-spiritual” manifestations or such by a power which we cannot comprehend simply by physical pursuit, a power which apparently is capable of presenting an “instant” (but only “temporary”) “appearance” or “illusion” of being a physical phenomenon to the observer. Some suggest that it could even be a momentary, holographic intrusion from some “parallel intelligence”.

Some others even suggest that it could perhaps be some form of temporary “time-slip” or an interdimensional “intrusion”.

We just don’t have the answer.

It seems to me that as a possible projection from “another” reality, the phenomenon appears to be able to materialize and de-materialize at will.

But more significant is its apparent inability to stay in our dimensional realm except for a few moments at a time, or only for a short period of time.

In other words, it seems apparent that they’re unable to survive in our physical dimension except for a very brief period of time, at a time.

This is why it seems to me that in many cases a “UFO”, after making an initial appearance to what I call a “pre-selected” observer (or observers), simply appears to take off at a tremendous speed and disappear into the distance as if utilizing some form of advanced propulsion system.

But could this be a deception?

In other cases, “UFOs” seem to simply hover or “float” (again, as if they’re utilizing some form of a propulsion system capable of “floating”) before taking off or even de-materializing.

But again, could this be a deception?

As Dr. Jacques Vallee suggested quite often, “UFOs” may not necessarily be objects nor could they be “flying” as we understand “flying” by the use of any propulsion system.

Yet they are even said to be able to affect our physical parameters (such as radar, etc.)

As an important review, let’s list Dr. Jacques Vallee’s 5 basic propositions in regards to this phenomenon:

1) “The things we call unidentified flying objects are neither objects nor flying.
They can materialize, as some reliable photographs seem to show, and they violate the laws of motion as we know them”.

2) “UFOs have been seen throughout history and have consistently received (or provided) their own explanation within the framework of each culture.”

3) “UFO reports are not necessarily caused by visits from space travelers. The phenomenon could be a manifestation of a much more complex technology. If time and space are not as simple in structure as physicists have assumed until now, then the question ‘Where do they come from?’ may be meaningless; they could come from a place in time. If consciousness can be manifested outside the body, then the range of hypotheses can be even wider.”

4) “The key to an understanding of the phenomenon lies in the psychic effects it produces (or the psychic awareness it makes possible) in its observers.
Their lives are often deeply changed, and they develop unusual talents with which they may find it difficult to cope.
The proportion of witnesses who do come forward and publish accounts of these experiences is quite low; most of them choose to remain silent”.

5) “Contact between human percipients and the UFO phenomenon always occurs under conditions controlled by the latter. Its characteristic feature is a factor of absurdity that leads to a rejection of the story by the upper layers of the target society and an absorption at a deep unconscious level of the symbols conveyed by the encounter.
The mechanism of this resonance between the UFO symbol and the archetypes of the human unconscious has been abundantly demonstrated by Carl Jung, whose book FLYING SAUCERS makes many references to the age-old significance of the signs in the sky”.

Area 51 is alive and well – – massive new hangar shows up in the new Google Earth images of the secret base

new-hangar

(Click above for ENLARGEMENT)

by Tyler Rogoway, FOXTROT ALPHA – – September 21, 2016
http://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/5279/area-51s-massive-new-hangar-shows-up-in-new-google-earth-images-of-the-secret-base

(QUOTE)

“For the first time in half a decade, Google Earth/Google Maps imagery of America’s clandestine flight test center known as Area 51 have been updated.
In the new shots, we can see small changes to the ever-expanding base — and one giant one.

I’ve closely followed the construction of the massive new hangar at the base’s remote southern end, and have speculated on what’s inside.
In the past, long-range photography by Area 51 watchers and sample imagery from Terraserver have shown the ongoing construction of the big structure.
But this Google imagery offers a much more comprehensive and accessible view of the base and its big new feature.

The hangar is 210 feet wide by 250 feet long and very high, and is the largest addition to the base in nearly a decade.

In 2006, another large hangar was constructed on the south end of the base’s main ramp facility, complete with an earthen berm built around its south eastern approaches.
This facility is known to house Northrop Grumman programs, including a high-flying penetrating spy drone loosely named the RQ-180.
Uncharacteristically, the USAF has actually admitted to this program’s existence.

The remoteness of this new facility — along with its large size and especially its height—make it a much more curious addition than the 2006 hangar.
Is it a massive scoot-and-hide shelter for large aircraft or possibly for a swarm of smaller ones?
This seems unlikely due to the quality of its construction and how tall it is.
Or was it built so far south due the sensitivity of the program it services?
Maybe its location has something to do with the volatile nature of the fuel the aircraft uses?
There are other visible additions to the base compared to the 2011 Google image, including a new engine test cell between the northern ramp and the runways, and a new smaller hangar building near where the chase and test pilot aircraft park”.

How to investigate a flying saucer – – recommended by the Central Intelligence Agency

lonnie-zamora

(the well-known Lonnie Zamora case that took place on April 24, 1964 outside of Socorro, New Mexico)

– from the archives of the Central Intelligence Agency:
https://www.cia.gov/news-information/featured-story-archive/2016-featured-story-archive/how-to-investigate-a-flying-saucer.html

logo

(QUOTE FROM THE CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY):

Hector Quintanilla, the last chief officer of the US Air Force’s famous UFO investigation program, Project BLUE BOOK, was in charge of the Zamora case.

His team was convinced that Zamora was telling the truth, and despite an extremely thorough investigation, they were unable to locate the object or its origins.

In an article for Studies in Intelligence called, “The Investigation of UFO’s,” Quintanilla says that the Zamora sighting is “the best-documented case on record.”
It remains unsolved.

Project BLUE BOOK was based at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton, Ohio.
Between 1947 and 1969, the Air Force recorded 12,618 sightings of strange phenomena — 701 of which remain “unidentified” like the Zamora case.

Although the CIA was not directly affiliated with Project BLUE BOOK, the Agency did play a large role in investigating UFOs in the late 1940s and early 1950s, which led to the creation of several studies, panels, and programs.

Former CIA Chief Historian, Gerald K. Haines, wrote an in-depth article looking at the Agency’s role in studying the UFO phenomenon for Studies in Intelligence.

In his article, “CIA’s Role in the Study of UFOs, 1947-90,” Haines says that “while the Agency’s concern over UFOs was substantial until the early 1950s, CIA has since paid only limited and peripheral attention to the phenomena.”

With over 20 years of investigations, from the late 1940s until Project BLUE BOOK’s termination in 1969, the CIA and USAF have learned a thing or two about how to investigate a UFO sighting.
While most government officials and scientists now dismiss flying saucer reports as a quaint relic of the 1950s and 1960s, there’s still a lot that can be learned from the history and methodology of “flying saucer intelligence.”

Scientists – – Earth endangered by new strain of fact-resistant humans

borowitz-earth-endangered-by-fact-resistant-humans-1200

by Andy Borowitz, THE NEW YORKER – – May 12, 2015:
http://www.newyorker.com/humor/borowitz-report/scientists-earth-endangered-by-new-strain-of-fact-resistant-humans

(QUOTE):

MINNEAPOLIS (The Borowitz Report) – – May 12, 2015:

Scientists have discovered a powerful new strain of fact-resistant humans who are threatening the ability of Earth to sustain life, a sobering new study reports.

The research, conducted by the University of Minnesota, identifies a virulent strain of humans who are virtually immune to any form of verifiable knowledge, leaving scientists at a loss as to how to combat them.

“These humans appear to have all the faculties necessary to receive and process information,” Davis Logsdon, one of the scientists who contributed to the study, said.
“And yet, somehow, they have developed defenses that, for all intents and purposes, have rendered those faculties totally inactive.”

More worryingly, Logsdon said, “As facts have multiplied, their defenses against those facts have only grown more powerful.”

While scientists have no clear understanding of the mechanisms that prevent the fact-resistant humans from absorbing data, they theorize that the strain may have developed the ability to intercept and discard information en route from the auditory nerve to the brain.
“The normal functions of human consciousness have been completely nullified,” Logsdon said.

While reaffirming the gloomy assessments of the study, Logsdon held out hope that the threat of fact-resistant humans could be mitigated in the future.
“Our research is very preliminary, but it’s possible that they will become more receptive to facts once they are in an environment without food, water, or oxygen,” he said.

An alarming (and increasing) number of these “anti-Science” folks still seem to refuse not to believe in delusional beliefs, such as:

“The moon landings are hoaxes manufactured by large-scale government collusion”.

Aliens in UFOs have visited earth but their presence is concealed by the government and malevolent agencies”.

“Trails of particles left by airplanes in the sky (“contrails“) are toxic chemicals (“chemtrails”) sprayed on the whole earth by a secret group intent o destruction and domination”.

“The AIDS virus was constructed in a laboratory and is deliberately used by a secret society as a tool of destruction”.

Fluoride is added to drinking water by secret government programs in order to exert mind control”.

Free energy devices successfully create energy out of nothing, but their widespread use is suppressed by powerful conspiracies involving energy companies”.

And the list goes on and on (including “Elvis is alive“).

Yes, the earth is endangered by the new strain of fact-resistant humans!!

Lord help us from these delusional, fact-resistant, anti-Science folks!!!

One thing I must mention is that one’s personal religious beliefs do not come under this category.
Science is science. Religious beliefs are religious beliefs.

Why do people believe in conspiracy theories?

illuminati

(image by New Life Media)

by Dr. Christopher S. Baird, SCIENCE QUESTIONS WITH SURPRISING ANSWERS – – August 12, 2013:
http://sciencequestionswithsurprisinganswers.org/2013/08/12/why-do-people-believe-in-conspiracy-theories/

(QUOTE)

People are all different, so the reasons for them believing in conspiracies cover a broad range of factors.
In general, though, people tend to believe in conspiracies because of helplessness.
Ted Goertzel, professor of sociology at Rutgers University, found that belief in conspiracy theories is strongly linked to insecurity about employment, alienation, lack of interpersonal trust, and minority status – all forms of helplessness. Conspiracies are easily disproved by a wealth of evidence and some basic, sound reasoning, and yet sizable portions of the population continue to believe in absurd ideas such as the following:

The moon landings are claimed to be hoaxes manufactured by large-scale government collusion.

Aliens in UFOs are claimed to have visited earth but their presence is concealed by malevolent agencies.

Modern medicine is claimed to be toxic and “alternative” medicine is claimed to be miraculous, but a global conspiracy involving greedy drug companies conceals these facts.

Trails of ice particles left by airplanes in the sky (“contrails“) are claimed to really be toxic chemicals (“chemtrails“) being sprayed on the whole earth by a secret group intent on destruction and domination.

The AIDS virus was allegedly constructed in a laboratory and is deliberately used by a secret society as a tool of destruction.

Fluoride is claimed to be added to drinking water by secret government programs in order to exert mind control.

A New World Order of elites is claimed to be secretly controlling all governments for malevolent purposes.

The Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and other terrorist attacks are claimed to be carried out secretly by the people’s own government in an effort to foment war.

Free energy devices are claimed to successfully create energy out of nothing, but their widespread use is suppressed by powerful conspiracies involving energy companies.

Genetically modified crops are claimed to be dangerous and a vast conspiracy is claimed to be suppressing evidence showing this fact.

Despite the fact that conspiracies such as these run completely contrary to a giant body of evidence, and indeed go against logical reasoning itself, such conspiracies continue to be believed by many people.
Why?
The main reason people believe in conspiracies despite their absurdity is helplessness.

Unemployment, under-employment, lack of education, substance addiction, chronic illness, dysfunctional families, and failing relationships all contribute to a person feeling helpless.

In order to cope emotionally with such situations, many people blame their helplessness on conspiracies; giant secret societies with amazing power that control everyone for sinister purposes.

The belief in conspiracies gives those in hopeless and destitute conditions something to hope for.

“If the conspiracy can just be exposed”, they think, “I will no longer be destitute”.
The belief itself becomes empowering to many in helpless situations.
They see the rest of the world as mindless sheep controlled by the elite, and themselves as the enlightened few.

The belief in conspiracies also enables such people to emotionally cope with the chaos that surrounds their life by believing there is an overall ordered society of elites that controls the world.
Even though they see this society as secretive and evil, the belief itself in an ordered, controlling society is enough to offer comfort to one who feels surrounded by chaos and helpless to their situation.

Although a person may be safely employed in a rewarding career, a lack of education can be enough to render him subconsciously helpless and therefore susceptible to conspiracy theories.

When a person does not understand the basic physical laws that govern the universe, daily events seem random and nonsensical.
Being confronted day in and day out with a jumble of incomprehensible events is harrowing.
To deal with this mental commotion, many people see conspiracies as the driving forces behind the seemingly random string of events.
In reality, the laws of science run the world.
But it is much easier to believe a secret society runs the world than to try to understand the laws of science if you have a poor education.

Helplessness can take many other forms.
Even wealthy, educated people get cancer.
The miserable, ongoing, and terminal nature of serious diseases can make even the richest and smartest of people feel helpless.

When modern medicine fails to help them (or just takes too long to help them), many people turn to conspiracies to cope. It’s more comforting to believe that a miracle cure is available but is kept just out of reach by a conspiring pharmaceutical industry, than to accept the reality that some diseases simply do not have cures.

It’s more comforting to believe that your cancer was caused by chemtrails, water fluoridation, genetically modified crops, aliens, western medicine, tooth amalgam, household cleaning supplies, or power lines than to accept that cancer is a natural part of life that just happens.

Goertzel states, “…during periods of insecurity and discontent people often feel a need for a tangible enemy on which to externalize their angry feelings.
Conspiracy theories may help in this process by providing a tangible enemy to blame for problems which otherwise seem too abstract and impersonal.
Conspiracy theories also provide ready answers for unanswered questions and help to resolve contradictions between known ‘facts’ and an individual’s belief system.”

Note that some conspiracies are real.
But the real conspiracies are quickly dismantled by the justice system and are well documented by mainstream scientists, journalists, and historians.
Also, real conspiracies tend to involve only a handful of people and are rarely successful.
Most real conspiracies fall apart before they even get started, while the rest are eventually exposed and dismantled.

Giant, powerful, successful conspiracies do not happen for the following reasons:

It only takes one whistle-blower to bring down an entire conspiracy.
The more people there are in a conspiracy, the more potential whistle-blowers there are, and the shorter the conspiracy lasts. T

he most successful conspiracies (such as Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme) involve only a handful of people, and they still eventually fail.
Sustaining a global conspiracy among medical doctors would require convincing every single one of the millions of doctors from all religions, nations, and cultures to participate in a coordinated cover-up.

People are inherently independent minded.
Sustaining a global conspiracy would require making millions of people from all walks of life have the exact same goals and motives, and be willing to do what ever they are told to perpetuate the conspiracy.
In the business world, people quit their job, move, start their own business, and campaign for reform whenever faced with too little independence.
These types of actions would doom a conspiracy.
History teaches us that the level of authoritarianism needed to sustain a global conspiracy leads to violent revolution by the masses.
A large conspiracy would be doomed by internal warfare before it ever got off the ground.

People are inherently decent.
The vast majority of people on the earth are ethical, law-abiding citizens that pursue careers and causes in order to benefit society.
A giant conspiracy would require a large number of people to lie, cheat, and purposely harm their family, friends, neighbors, and country.

We are all human.
Doctors get sick too.
Doctors therefore have a strong personal incentive not to suppress medical treatments that succeed.

Government employees live under the same sky and drink the same water.
They have a strong personal incentive not to poison the water or fill the sky with chemicals.

Large organizations are inherently too inefficient, cumbersome, and complex to carry out a large, coordinated plan of evil secrecy.
Even the most successful large-scale secretive agency in the world – the CIA – has security leaks (such as the Snowden affair).
The difference between the CIA and a conspiracy is that the CIA’s mission is supported by the will of the people and is seen as generally beneficial, so it survives its security leaks. A large-scale conspiracy would not.

Note that this website, Science Questions with Surprising Answers, does not attempt to disprove conspiracies.
I believe such an exercise is pointless and futile.
Presenting conspiracy theorists with logic and evidence won’t change their minds as such people are not thinking logically to begin with.
Because helplessness is the root of belief in conspiracies, the best way to dispel their paranoia is to help them get out of their destitute situation.
Improving the general educational level, career prospects, community involvement, and family relationships of conspiracy theorists will do more to dispel their myths than arguing directly against their myths.

Something as simple as participating in a town hall meeting can help a neighbor realize that the world is not as evil and colluding as he imagines.

A blurry line between Christians and “Conspiracy Believers” – – it all depends on how far you want to go

maxresdefault

(image, courtesy of Reality Entertainment)

Some folks label me a “conspiracy nut”.
Some others label me a “conspiracy debunker”.
It all depends on who is labeling me as such.
And I don’t mind when people label me either way because there is no topic as fascinating as “conspiracies” and “conspiracy theories”.

Conspiracies have always existed from time immemorial.
Nothing new.
Whenever two or more plot something detrimental to the third party, that is conspiracy.

Here is a good quote from Edward Epstein from WALL STREET JOURNAL:

(QUOTE)

Conspiracy, a word derived from the Latin “to breathe together,” has been a salient part of the darker side of recorded history ever since some 60 conspirators in the Roman senate, including Brutus and Cassius, plotted together to assassinate Julius Caesar in 44 B.C.

Nowadays the “C” word does not always sit well with journalists, who commonly employ it in conjunction with “theory” to describe paranoid distortions of reality.

Even so, a criminal conspiracy is not a rare phenomenon.
Not only was a foreign conspiracy responsible for the monstrous 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center (as well as the previous attempt to blow it up in 1993) but, according to the Center on Law and Security at Fordham University, over 90% of routine federal indictments for terrorist attacks since 9/11 contain at least one conspiracy charge.

The government’s pursuit of conspiracies is by no means limited to terrorism. Conspiracy charges are the rule rather than the exception in cases brought against businessmen accused of fixing prices, evading environmental regulations, using insider information or laundering money.”

(UNQUOTE)

Yes, conspiracies exist.

But there is a difference beween “conspiracies” and “conspiracy theories”.
But many folks say that the word “conspiracy theory” is a creation of the CIA.
It also seems that a lot of folks believe in what’s described by psychologists as “delusional conspiracy theories”.
But it all depends on how far one wants to go with it.

When I post some articles about the role and effect of beliefs in “conspiracy theories”, then immediately some folks label me a “conspiracy debunker”.
Some even label me a “conspiracy nut” even though I only write about how beliefs in “conspiracies” affect a segment of the society in general.
Either way, you can’t win.

But here is one thing that people need to understand.
There is a blurry line between a Christian and a “conspiracy believer”.
It all depends on how far you want to go.

Many folks describe themselves simply as Christians.
Some describe themselves as “Bible-believing”, “Born-again” or “Evangelical” Christians.
But there are some folks who take pride in being “Fundamentalist Christians”.
Many of the so-called “mainline Christians” seem to want to distance themselves from Fundamentalist Christians.
Again, it all depends on how far one wants to go.

A Christian, by its own definition, is a person that believes in “conspiracies”, since the belief that Lucifer was the first “conspirator” against God is a major tenet of Christian belief.

I myself am a believer in Jesus Christ.
But how far I will go with it depends on circumstances.
(such as when I am in the company of a certain group – – perhaps this may not be right in the mind of some folks – -but I am a type of person who dislikes making dogmatic statements among certain groups).

Fundamentalist Christians (including most “Evangelical Christians”) not only believe in the Lord Jesus Christ but also believe that Satan also exists and that Satan is in control of this present world.

Such believers see the presence of Satan practically everywhere.
But at the same time, they believe that they can overcome the oppression of Satan through the power of Jesus Christ.

The bulk of Fundamentalist Christians and “Evangelical Christians” believe that in the near future, there will be a One World Government (more popularly known as the “New world Order”) led by the Anti-Christ, a re-incarnation of Satan, before Jesus returns in glory.

So, in this sense, there is little difference between those who believe in the New World Order conspiracies and “Bible-believing”, “Born-again” Christians.
It all depends on how far one’s belief goes

Is the Ancient Alien theory correct? – – – by Trevor Wozny

004

– by Trevor Wozny, from the ANGRY UFOLOGIST site – – Cutting through all the UFO nonsense, blatant frauds and fraudsters – – March 4, 2016:

(QUOTE):

No.
First, let me address any epistemology whining that people might do:
Anything is possible.
There could be a flying spaghetti monster, there could be a planet full of creatures that all look like Kate Upton, there could be a planet of sophisticated machines that can morph into trucks, and there could have been a race of humanoid aliens that visited us and messed with our biology and culture.
All of them are so utterly improbable that we are right in dismissing them as fantasy until we see otherwise.
Yes, it’s true that you can have deep philosophical discussions about the nature of knowledge and can argue that nothing can be known 100%.
It’s also true that pragmatically speaking, you can’t prove most negatives.
We do have limited knowledge of the physical and reality.
Established ideas in science and history can and do often change for the better.
So we can never be 100% certain of our current state of knowledge is complete.

Okay, now let’s get into it.

I was a big fan of Erich von Daniken’s books when I was in my teens.
I come from a middle-class professional family.
Those books blew my mind and fueled my imagination.
Later, I went to university and learned how to think logically and rationally.
I learned about the history of our species, how we came to be, the known reality of our place in the cosmos and much more about physics, biology, psychology and various other fields.
I can now look back at those books and easily see the psychological tricks and fallacies they perform to get people who don’t have those defensive skills on board.
But there is zero credible evidence that this Earth has ever been visited. There is a lot of hearsay, a lot of weird theories, and a lot of vague evidence retrofitted to further an ideological agenda, but when looked at skeptically, rationally and through the lens of Occam’s razor, there is nothing to suggest that history didn’t play out like the established scientific literature says it did.

Did E.T. modify our DNA for some malevolent hybridization program?

There is no biological evidence that suggests our DNA was altered by our space brothers.
If you mean “did aliens tamper with ape DNA or even mix with themselves” then the answer is no.
There is no possible way terrestrial and non-terrestrial would even have compatible biochemistry, let alone compatible genomes.
So no amount of mixing would ever create a viable creature.
It would be like mixing a Playstation 3 with a banana.
Just plain nonsense.
We have an outstanding fossil record of the evolution of modern humans from apes, and the timeline does not need outrageous explanations like aliens.
The speed of evolution of biped walking and the explosion of growth in the frontal cortex can be explained by things like harsh savannahs, ice ages, and sexual selection.

Now, I guess it’s possible that, like in the book 2001 by Arthur C Clarke, aliens may have guided our evolution, either subtly or more directly, just as we turned wolves into dogs by selective breeding. But again, going back to Occam’s razor, why jump to an extreme, improbable, evidence-lacking, fantastical, extraordinary explanations when we have perfectly good, simple, evidence-backed, sensible, mundane ones?

Hominids driven out onto the savannas, followed by some sexual selection perfectly explains the rapid evolution of the human language, imagination, intellect, and creativity. And our genes are clearly related, but different, to other apes in a manner conforming to what we know of evolution.

In terms of archaeology, there are some interesting examples but they always turn out to have a mundane explanation.
A mystery is only a mystery until we get a new information, and then it is not a mystery anymore.

It is not helpful to take existing gaps in our knowledge and just explain them by shouting “GOD!” or “ALIENS!”.
It’s not explaining anything, it’s just ignorantly and deceitfully papering-over genuine mysteries.
And the problem with it is that it often curtails genuine curiosity and genuine investigation.
And there will always be mysteries.
We don’t have the ability to explain all weird things in archaeology, but we just have to accept that.
Will future historians be able to explain everything about our culture if 99.999% of it has been lost through the ravages of time?
