To begin our investigation of unidentified flying objects, let us discuss mediocrity, and the universe. Now, I’m not talking about the Ayn Rand style of "mediocrity," or the "mediocrity" of one Broadway production in comparison with another, but rather the "mediocrity" concerned in the philosophy of science and speculation. Earth is not in a special magical position, in the center of the universe, in center of the galaxy, in the center of the solar system. Rather we find ourselves in a "mediocre" position, off to the side, and out of the limelight. This also applies to time. There is in the philosophy of science no one special epoch, no special magic moment, no great period; rather we may accept that any time has merits, none particularly superior.
Modern scientists insist on a "big bang" theory of existence in which time and space play a minor role. Time has, they tell us, a beginning. Space once wasn't. I mentioned a moment ago that the Earth — home sweet home! — is not in the center of our solar system. But consider that at one some point in time some very brilliant men believed it to be. Copernicus comes to mind. Likewise I suggest that while today we believe there is no infinity, someday the pendulum may reverse. I hold that time and space are infinite; always have been there, always will be. And everywhere. No end.
Given that, it is unlikely that we are the only life form in the universe. Given that, it is impossible that we are alone. In infinity, there are an infinite number of worlds. And we must surmise an infinite number, exactly as our own. And if there is in the universe any potential for "time travel," then it must be here and now. The imagination reels.
So, given all that, we may suspect the existence of curious beings, or evil beings, or helpful beings, and as the Mayans remember, they soon will be here. Ah, the trusting Mayans. They believed that superior beings from the stars were coming. They spent their days cleaning and purifying in anticipation of the visitors. Nothing came from space, but the explorers from the New World came to their shores, and wiped them out.
Have we had visitors from Space or Time? Is there any evidence?
FOX News is — we all readily agree — a reliable source. And FOX News has little choice but to acknowledge the demands of responsible people, scientists and politicians, who demand an investigation. FOX News is clearly hot on the vapor trail! They write:
NASA has agreed to search its archives again for documentation of a UFO incident in Pennsylvania. "They could not find anything," one Air Force memo stated after a late-night search (Dec. 9, 1965). Several NASA employees were reported to have been at the scene. Eyewitnesses said a flatbed truck drove away a large object shaped like an acorn and about the size of a Volkswagen bus.
In a similar cause for vexation, The British Evening Standard reported that the cres and passengers of a British jetliner spotted an unidentified flying object over the Channel Islands. They said the vessel was "a mile wide, and glowing white." The incident was reported as a "near miss" by Aurigny Airlines Capt. Ray Bowyer, close to Alderney, an island in the English Channel. In the report, 50-year-old Ray Bowyer described the object as "a cigar-shaped brilliant white light."
