They all use the "para" conclusions of folk like Mack and Hopkins, Hynek and Vallee, to steer their readers/viewers to believe that unexplained phenomena are either 'inter-dimensional' or 'demonic'. While personally accepting that there's a range of mysterious events - which _do_ happen - most notably under 'poltergeist' or similar headings, think we should by now know enough about the limitations of human perception to be very wary of jumping to conclusions based only on our stock of ancestral images. Scientific research into perception, especially visual or optical, has shown that we (and all higher mammals) can only 'see' what we already know; i.e. if a new-born kitten is prevented from seeing certain shapes during its first weeks of life it will never be able to 'see' those shapes ever again. More shocking perhaps is the fact that some folk, blind from birth, when their sight is restored late in life can only see 'monsters' and threatening images. Many retire to darkened rooms and some commit suicide rather than face those visual horrors. Backing up the hypothesis that we can only see what's already in our minds, a while ago got a mail from a doctor in India who'd presumably been reading my page on 'ghosty' phenomena. He said that the many millions of Hindus don't ever see Western-type ghosts but, interestingly. in a prison he acted as MO for, there _were_ reports of hauntings. That seems significant because in a prison you're more likely to find non-conforming or non- religious folk anyway, so the odds _could_ favor some non- Hindu para-phenomena. However, the most cogent reason for not jumping to conclusions - especially between stark alternatives like 'inter-dimensional' or 'demonic' - lies in Quantum Mechanics. First, we don't find (many) scientists opting for supernatural explanations for QM's anti-intuitive results. Second, the classic QM two-slit experiment shows entities acting as either particles or waves - but not both at the same time. Therefore I believe a logical person should conclude those entities are neither particle nor wave, but something else. And that principle probably applies to the simplistic alternatives that we primitive humans have so far applied to the UFO/ET problem. I.e. they're likely to be 'something else'.
