Subject: Good Advice From Jacques Vallee


[Quotation begins]

"First, it is a mistake to believe in Authority, or to put blind
faith in official reports, scientific theses, or the theory of a
particular author, whenever a point of research is discussed. As
objective as my reader perhaps thinks I am, I cannot help but
have a general image in mind as I write this book, and so do all
writers, even writers on subjects as amenable to objective
analysis as chemistry or geometry - no matter how loudly they
deny being biased. Therefore one must borrow from books only
those elements that appear properly documented, and they must be
confronted with a larger human context.

A good researcher should not be afraid to change his mind; he
should not feel desperate because his comforting beliefs leave
him as soon as he begins to think critically. If he applies these
rules, he may not solve all the problems he attacks, but at least
he will be less likely to fall victim of every delusion or fad
that is associated with them.

Just as some cheap magazines are deliberately written to generate
fear in the public and to capitalize on that fear, some
scientific reports are deliberate hoaxes designed to reinforce
the credibility of our scientific, political, or military
establishments. This is a fact of life, and it should not
discourage one from the study of science. It does not necessarily
mean that anybody is hiding some formidable truth. <i>If the idea
that science knows nothing about certain phenomena is
unacceptable to the public, why should it be more easily
acceptable to professional scientists?</i>
[his stress]

For a scientist, the only valid question, in this context, is to
decide whether the phenomenon can be studied by itself, or
whether it is an instance of a deeper problem."

                         --Jacques Vallee - 'Passport to Magonia'

[Quotation Ends]


Think that's excellent advice, both general and particular, from
Gov't abuse of science misquotes and downright lies - on GM
foods, drugs policy, and "prison works" etc (mostly since proven
to be lies, but that's _not_ publicised), to Big Science's
present failure to address its total ignorance of the cause(s)
of mass / inertia / half-life etc - which absence, if you peer
back through the structure of Relativity _and_ Quantum theories,
leaves a gaping chasm under _all_ of modern physics.

Einstein had that foreboding, way back in '55 - see
www.perceptions.couk.com/blinded.html#ein - and, if you read his
paper 'The Foundation of the General Theory of Relativity'
(1916) you might see why. He followed Mach in saying the secret
of inertia/mass (centrifugal force in his terms) lay in the
"fixed stars" - which are distant by at least half the radius of
the observable universe but somehow conspire to keep a uni-
cyclist - or a spinning coin - upright INSTANTANEOUSLY from
moment to moment.

Yup, that's _not_ "easily acceptable to professional
scientists", nor is the fact that any primal "force" involved
can be seen have variable effects - i.e. 'half-life' is _not_ a
constant - although mainstream science thought - and swore - it
was.
