I think it's good to have an article like this one of Nick Redfern's made available to this List now and then. It's informative for those who long ago accumulated more than enough evidence to know that UFOs are very real, and who wish to learn more about the intelligence lying behind the vehicles and their intentions. What can we learn from their various behaviors? Since the days of Leo Sprinkle, many have agreed that a large part of the purposes behind the sightings and encounters, snce WWII, has been for educational purposes - for our benefit. Other types or categories of sightings also fit into the mold that Redfern pictured in his Part 1. One is where a potential witness just 'happens' to have the urge to look out the window at a certain time, or look up into a certain sector of the sky, and immediately has her sighting. The subliminal communication has very often worked the other way also, with the witness's silent or vocal wish that the UFO come closer or shine brighter being granted immediately. In another category, which has come into prominence the past couple of years, a photographer shooting some scenic view discovers one or more UFOs in one or more of his picture or video frames a few minutes or days later. Besides educating us, the UFO aliens are thereby manipulating or playing with the obstinacy of negative skeptics. We should not be surprised if certain aliens who have been investigating and observing us for decades and centuries are not only smarter than we are, but more clever too. Hopefully, readers won't be too disapproving of Redfern's failure to have identified the first photo in his Part 1 as being an enlargement from Billy Meier's Ober-Sadelegg photo series of March 1975. He shouldn't have been afraid to acknowledge the source. Listen to 'Strange Days...
