Yes, Don, every one should become aware of the development in
cognitive processes. Especially, ufo researchers who rely only
on "witness" reports. The human is - so far - the only recording
devise involved in witness reports; that includes the
interpretation of photos of distant objects claimed by the
witness to be of ET origin. It could be argued that the
subconscious mind is just filling in the gaps in witness'
observation. How the hell would somebody be able to identify an
object in the distant and know what it was. I just watched some
space debris fall out of the sky. It happened in microseconds.
Not much of observation time, but because on my background in
astronomy, my mind filled in the details. Was that an accurate
determination? Don't know. I went to my astronomy group looking
for verification.

Yeah, sure, I can understand the resistance to the results of
new research into cognitive processes. We older adults became
used to thinking that what we saw was in fact the reality of the
situation. Now, we find out there are other factors involved in
coloring our 'reality'.
