Okay, my opinion. The Ingo Swans of the world only muddy up the
UFO waters more than they already are. I, for one, consider it a
total waste of time to spend more than 30 seconds on the
mutterings of mystics and psychics (so-called). Despite what
they and their (cultist?} followers may think, they have no
superior avenue to truth.
