Observations concerning those UFOs!

MONDAY, JUNE 28, 2021

With a memory of Old Seattle:  One year in the late 1970s, late in the month of June, we visited friends in Seattle. 

We don't think we're making this next point up. We recall that the temperature went over 80 degrees one day, with the result that some outdoor events were cancelled around the region. 

That, of course, was the old Seattle, the Seattle before climate change. From there, we proceed to two invaluable observations concerning UFOs.

First observation concerning UFOs:

From Seattle, we motored east to Glacier National Park. We spent a week with a group of friends high up, in one of the park-run chalets that can be accessed only by foot.

It snowed on the Fourth of July that year; again, this was pre-climate change. In those days, there were still glaciers in this park! We're taking you back that far!

One day, the group of six headed off on a "hike to nowhere." Briefly, we stopped on a hillside to give our bear bells a rest.  When we did, we were puzzled by a sight which stretched out before us:

We were looking at a small mountain lake whose surface was frozen over. (It was a bright, sunny day. Temps were probably in the 60s.) Weirdly, there seemed to be an opening in the middle of the lake—a type of chute which seemed to lead down into the middle of the earth.

No one could figure out what we were looking at. After something like ten minutes, somebody solved the puzzle.

We were looking at a slice of the lake which hadn't frozen over. Perhaps because the water and the air were both so clear, this had produced an unusually crisp reflection of the cliffside which rose up above the lake. 

Once the puzzle had been solved, it was obvious that it actually was the solution. You could track elements of the "chute to nowhere" back to elements of the cliff which stood above the lake.

But even after solving the puzzle, it was virtually impossible to comprehend what we were looking at. It was a completely convincing optical illusion, one we've never forgotten.

Some say that's what these UFOs are. We have no idea.

(Key update: Based on the way we're all dressed in the photos from that day, it was colder than the 60s in the area where the optical illusion occurred.)

Second observation concerning UFOs:

People, listen up! We humans don't have the slightest idea what we are, or where we are, or what we're doing there. We don't have the slightest idea what could be floating around, or if anything's floating around at all, perhaps including us.

At least in the west, we tend to be proud of our modern cosmology / physics / biology. But try this thought experiment:

Imagine that human development continues for the next thousand years. The human race isn't destroyed by nuclear war or by climate disaster. 

Donald J. Trump doesn't get elected again. Human culture and science continue to develop.

Warning:

Those people a thousand years hence may look back at our cosmology with the same embarrassment we often feel when we look back at our own fairly recent ancestors. Almost surely, their understanding of the cosmos won't even resemble ours.

They may think that Einstein's formulations were embarrassingly primitive. They may know what the current set of UFO / UAP sightings were, but they'll almost surely be embarrassed, or perhaps amused, by the various ways we tried to explain them.

We humans have always been inclined to think that we understood the cosmos. Let us offer that key thought again:

We have no idea where we are or what we're doing there. 

Our basic conceptions are very limited. When people try to spell them out, the result tends to be a hopeless muddle, though journalists will stand in line to say that these explanations are just amazingly clear. 

(Even Einstein couldn't write an "Einstein-made-easy" book! More than a hundred years later, no one else has been able to do it either.)

A thousand years from now, will people actually understand the ins and outs of the cosmos?

Probably not. But they'll possibly know that they should disregard the question. 

All roads will lead to Nepal, or maybe Tibet; there will be oodles of laughter. The Dalai Lama laughs at everything, David Brooks once said.

The Dalai Lama's joy: Two years ago, Mark Epstein reviewed Brooks' book, The Second Mountain, in the New York Times. This is part of what he wrote, right in the gent's own paper:

EPSTEIN (5/12/19): Brooks does remember a lunch with the Dalai Lama. “He didn’t say anything particularly illuminating or profound,” Brooks makes a point of telling us, “but every once in a while he just burst out laughing for no apparent reason.”  Brooks was touched by the Dalai Lama’s infectious joy but does not return the favor. Despite lots of illuminating and profound quotes and stories, he never makes us smile.

Brooks came up short on infectious joy. Easy to be hard!

Meanwhile, what was the Lama laughing about? A thousand years from now, will everybody know? 

("No people are uninteresting," Yevtushenko said.)

So I search online on how to get my husband back, and I came across a post of Dr Great of how he helped a lady to get back her ex, I contacted him and told him the pain I was going through, he told me what to do and I did it, then he casted a love spell for me 48 hours later my husband called me and told me he is sorry for what he did and that he misses me very much, later that day he came back home and beg for my forgiveness, since then our love grew stronger. For the marvelous things Dr Great has done for me it would be unfair for me not to let the whole world know that such a powerful spell caster do live.

  2. "That, of course, was the old Seattle, the Seattle before climate change."

    What, climate change, dear Bob? Oh dear. What about the tons of hot air emitted by liberals and their brownshirts recently?


    "Second observation concerning UFOs"

    We don't have time to read your excellent (very deeeep) musings, unfortunately, but isn't it that a UFO will soon come and take all you virtuous liberals up to the heavens, where y'all belong?

    Leaving all us sinners here on the terribly overheated Earth, to suffer without y'all?

    We would like to hear more about that UFO, dear Bob.

  3. Years ago, while in London, I visited Isaac Newton's shrine in Westminster Abbey. He holds a place of honor, not because his physics solved every problem in that discipline, but because his experimental approach overturned all previous knowledge and revolutionized his field. He was a great man. His being along a continuum of great men made him no less important. He was never an embarrassment no matter how incomplete his work.

    Somerby doesn't understand the first things about science. He doesn't appreciate its incremental nature. He doesn't know that when findings are based on experiments, they remain true because the laws governing our universe do not change. We may add to knowledge or understand it in different, more complete ways, but we do not set aside previous knowledge. We build upon it. That makes it not an "embarrassment" but a necessary foundation.

    The Dalai Lama is just another person, unless you believe in his religion. I don't. That means I don't care why he laughs at private things. I don't believe he has anything to share with me and I don't consider him special. He is certainly not important in the ways that Newton was. No matter how spiritual his being, he has not made the kind of contribution that will last or change our world. I find it very hard to understand why Somerby cares about him.

    Somerby's attitude that because we don't know everything, we don't know anything, is very wrong. His belief would be embarrassingly foolish, if he had any impact on the world. Since he doesn't, it doesn't matter what he thinks, except in terms of his own personal happiness. From my view, it sucks to be him and I cannot imagine walking around with his world view. Aside from being an obviously unhappy person, Somerby's views are anti-science and thus dangerous precisely because he interferes with solving those life-threatening problems he imagined away in today's essay (climate change especially). If he cannot help address such problems, he should stand aside and stop impeding the work of others.

    Figures such as the Dalai Lama may appeal to men like Somerby because they present a father figure who will solve all problems. How? He doesn't know, but the Lama's inscrutability allows any fantasy to be projected onto him. If you were to ask what the Dalai Lama has ever done for humanity besides offer vain hope, the answer is "nothing whatsoever." Somerby is chasing easy answers but life is hard. And no, it is not easy to be hard.

  4. "Meanwhile, what was the Lama laughing about?"

    Oh, puh-leeze, dear Bob. His Holiness is nearing 90. Older than your cult's Supreme Leader. He was probably recalling children rubbing his hairy leg or something.

  7. After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don’t believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or WhatsApp him +15068001647 blog: spiritualherbal.blogspot.com you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything.

  8. **GREAT NEWS**
    My purpose out here today is to share this article to the world about how Doctor Balbosa helped me in getting back my ex-boyfriend that broke up with me 4 months ago. I tried all I could to make him see reasons with me so that we can continue our relationship but he denied me. Thank God for giving me the thought of going into the internet to search for help. I searched properly and I saw different reviews on Doctor Balbosa and I insisted on giving it a try by contacting him via call / whats-app on (+1-206-485-3691 ) and WEBSITE https://balbosasolutionhome.com He gave me reason to live again and after He prepared the spell, He told me that my ex-boyfriend will come back to me within 28 hours. Can you believe it that my ex-boyfriend really came back and our wedding will be held soon. Contact him now if you need any help and he does a lot of spells. Once again I want to say I'm very grateful for your help this is also his Email Address: balbosasolutionhome@gmail.com
