Hi David, We've come full circle: First, I don't think there's a single 'normal sighted person' on this Earth who would be reliable when trying to describe something which was truly alien to his/her learned perceptions. As joint editors C.P. Snow (British Ministry of Technology), Prof. Henry Margenau (Yale University), Prof. Ren=E9 Dubois (The Rockefeller University) all agreed: "An examination of most of the data of vision would reveal no examples of what could be accurately called 'correct' perception." (in 'Light and Vision'). Second, at the start of this thread. I wrote: "been reviewing some presentations with agendas. 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'" - and then went on to hypothesize that we can only 'see' what's already in our minds (from biological experiment and examples of different paranormal experiences being determined by existing folk-mythologies). In other words, if an alien 'plasma-being' were to materialize, an MIT prof would 'see' an artifact - a saucer, or a robot etc; a mid-European peasant would 'see' something from fairy tales - a walking house or some such; while an Amazonian villager would 'see' a zoomorphic Forest God - a giant magical animal. Don't forget: light is stopped by the back of the eye, so no human brain has ever had a (true) optical view of the universe. Cheers Ray D Listen to 'Strange Days...
