The amount of weirdness in our lives is staggering, but the reason that comment rings a bit hollow is because we miss most of it. We could be walking past something very real, only partially hidden, and in the right circumstances   be oblivious to it.   Speed up your  actions, walking, driving etc. and this  field of visual numbness increases drastically.

just some of the group, who is lying on the pavement i dont have a clue,

In our style of photography we are not  aware of much of what is found till later. If we were able to linger in spots for four to five hours of time, our photos would be better, but of what? Nothing is going to stand in its place, knowing your setting up your tripod for a picture of it, nothing that lives with the illusion it is hidden and wants to stay that way.  I’ve watched investigators drag out their high dollar tripods and cameras, talking at the back of their vehicles,  like they are at a still life spot to photograph, a building,or a geographical feature.

one of the great experiences in this study, is the memory of a sighting, not photographic clues from a mystery,

But these sort of actions are ill advised when you are  hunting something, and that’s really what we’re doing right?   We’re trying to catch something on film that may not even have  the semi predictable instincts of an animal, yet could  function from a separate, possibly system of reactions. So, our movements, especially at night in the field, especially when in a small group, should be mobile.  There are many things we’ve captured on film that I would not have wanted to be near very long. We should  not be wandering from the camera to the truck. Our attention should not be divided between the possible subject in our proximity and tinkering with gadgetry .

If possible, we should wear some article of clothing that has multiple pockets, keeping what you need at hand. This allows you to keep your focus partially on the area your in as you change batteries and other necessary adjustments along the way.  To get back to the point, there are lots of things near us that we’re unaware of, yet we do capture, as they examine us at a distance.   We can’t assume that all these are Greys with their mind reading abilities or Nordics with their affection for the human race. Visualize the night as a zoo type environment only weirder. There are not just the humanoids to deal with.

When you visit a place, do you generally take your dog? Some can, I’m sure, and do. The point is, once you decide to move somewhere, you not only would bring your animals but you’d bring your plants you tend and all the things that make you,you.  If the human race planned to take a semi arid planet as our own own, capable of growth, one that could be turned green again, of course we’d do it.  We’d take as much common to our planet as we could things beneficial to us, that we’ve found make our world livable for us.

Well, for any other migrating species on an exodus of their own, wouldn’t those same sort of plans be likely?  If planning to exist on our world, wouldn’t they seek to alter it, fine tune it for their best existence upon it?   Maybe there is too much sun light here allowed through the clouds. It’s   possible certain of their plants or forms of life native to their world could be responsible for its allowance of sun, responsible for the density of their atmosphere. They could release spores or similar sprays that float up into the atmosphere, building it, just as plants create oxygen here on earth.  Those types of plant and life forms would be very beneficial to bring along, especially if they were tested here and found capable of entering the flora here and not only surviving, but eventually having a dominant role.

On earth everything is involved in a complex weave, one to some degree relying on the success of another.  Even lizards, mammals and fish rely on certain plants for food. Some feed on  the other forms of life  that come to these areas themselves for food and water.  Possibly, the Earth is not alone in that, and these traveling races  might bring, as well, these compliments to their system. They could be like Noah, bringing  their lost planets seeds of life. If we believe a man and his family in antiquity created a vessel large enough to house such a collection of life, then sure we have to give beings capable of galactic or dimensional travel the the same capability.

There are lots of questions in the study of UFO’s. One is why have they been here so long yet stayed for the most part out of sight? Why have they not revealed themselves? Surely a group, supposedly trying to take over our world as many think, would have acted after hundreds if not thousands of years. The answer might be, because they are still not ready.  Perhaps they are more patient than we could ever imagine, having ages ago all agreed to a plan they knew might  take generations or centuries to bring to fruition.

They know their control over us as well as our world must come in minimal steps.  How often do you not just walk through nature talking over its beauty, but sit down amidst it examining the same plants and insects you remember as a child?   Every year, maybe every day, we fall more and more under the hypnotic spell of our marvels.  Children use devices that our parent’s heroes used on the outer space adventures. Flights into space for high paying thrill seekers are not a fantasy any longer.  All this, almost abject, worship we lavish on our toys works in a way that could be beneficial to them also.

If you want to accomplish something in war, on the football field, in a magic show, you sometimes use a diversion of some kind. you use one that blinds the opposition to your real cause.  The loss of certain creatures in our ECO system could be as devastating as the the introduction of theirs. The loss of honey bees etc., the sudden death of large numbers of fish and birds, certain species  of them, could be just a fine tuning for a day when our losses are much more than that.

If you wanted slowly to seed a planet with your growth and your insects and your aquatic life, could this be easily done in front of a species in touch with their world, involved with it, noticing even minute changes,or would it be easier to pull it off against a people out of touch with it,  a species that show a cold indifference to it?

Families entertained themselves in outdoor activities in the past. They ate outdoors, camped, hiked and vacationed with a focus to” ENJOY THE GREAT OUTDOORS”.  There were educational shows like the undersea world of  Jacques Cousteau, Arther C. Clark’s mysterious world. etc. The Disney channel featured outdoor stories. That was before they became a factory transforming 15 year old girls into slightly different versions of Lindsey Lohan.     Now we consider  reality TV shows of different examples of our worst behavior as entertainment, with shows about cheating housewives competing for the GOLDEN globe award.   It’s like a constantly improving impression of Ivan Sanderson’s Oints. These were the beings he  suggested might have to come to a point in their evolution where they had become abysmally stupid and/or possibly mad.

We have turned on our past,  being so attracted to future, to our next moment with that game on line, to our next essential text, one of dozens a day.  Many of us go about our daily schedule with a machine in our hand much of it. All the things we were taught that were bad, are the mainstays of the idols we follow in this existence, locked deeply in the enchantment of our toys.  Just how often is your face down, staring into a screen?  When you do look up to fulfill the responsibilities we each have,  how quick is the headlong run back  to this nearly oblivious condition? You can say “lighten up, maybe you, Richard, you need to get real, it’s what the world is doing”.   There you have it. The statement spoken or not is true. It’s what the world is doing. The question is with the world this busy, just what are we missing?
