Are UFO’s Fact Or Fiction?

UFO is an abbreviation of Unidentified Flying Object. There has been quite a lot said and heard over the years about sightings of possible or actual alien spacecraft, many of these sightings may include objects like meteors, disintegrating satellites, flocks of birds, aircraft, lights, weather balloons, or just about anything moving within the visible band of electromagnetism. However, so far, it would appear that everything which has been said about these sightings has turned out to be a just gossip or fiction. This is because our senses and science require logics and proofs, and so far, no one has been able to produce actual proof that could help to positively identify any UFO sighting as an alien spacecraft. No one has been able to produce any physical evidence to support of their claim that they have seen alien spacecraft or actual aliens. Ofcourse, the possibility of some government agencies having proof of such things is a strong one. If any government agency anywhere in the world does have such proof it is highly unlikely that they would share this with the general population.

Are UFOs Science A Science Fiction?

Well, we are not in a position to say anything for definite as of now. If we study the history of the sightings related to UFO, we would come across many things that indicate a whole world of unknown truths. Still, nothing can be said for certain. If we talk about the evidence, well, we have an huge array of such evidence, but none of this is very reliable.

Take for example the large number of photographs which have been published of UFOs. They all appear blurred and many of these are quite obviously forgeries. Again, many people talk about physical evidence, such as alleged debris from alien crashes, or scorch marks on the ground apparently from alien landings, or implants in noses or brains of alien bodies, etc. But, when science does its job, most of these alleged physical evidences turn out to be terrestrial and or just forgeries.

Reasons Why People Believe in UFOs

Despite there being no reliable proof that we know of to support the existence of UFOs, most of the world still believe that there are such things. Well, the main reason why people believe in such objects is the testimony of people who claim to have been witness to alien events. They claim to have seen things of alien origin and their questionable interpretations of visual experiences force us to rethink. However, there are of course many other reasons for this. For example, mankind has a typical nature and it will not be an exaggeration that most of us are unable to distinguish science fiction from science fact. Because of our human nature, most of us have an overwhelming desire to contact other worlds, and this gives us cause to believe in UFOs. This desire is so strong that we are quite open to suggestion and are quite willing to trust incompetent people who tell us fantastic stories.

Overall, one of the most important facts which should be noted is that those people who claim to have watched the UFO are mostly untrained sky watchers. No professional or amateur astronomer has ever made such claims. This is the reason why UFOs would appear to be sheer science fiction instead of being science fact.

Mind Tyranny: Fact or Fiction?

Have you ever wondered why individuals raised in the same home, with the same caregivers, and virtually identical environmental stimuli develop such disparate interpretations of the world in which they live? Undoubtedly, as individuals, we have a myriad of genetic and biological influences in our lives. We are also susceptible to various stressors that are unique to the lives we lead.

However, to what extent may the lens through which we view our lives be contingent upon the aforementioned factors? Why do we process data so differently? We often hear terms such as, “Science says… ” In reality, Science speaks via the interpretation of data by scientists. These scientists interpret data, albeit unintentionally (in the vast majority of cases), encumbered by their biases, prejudices, lack of sufficient data/knowledge, etc.

To ask the question stated in our title, assumes there exists congruity in the use of the term “mind.” This is an assumption that is readily challenged.

There are researchers that assert that mind does not exist, certainly not the conscious mind. Others assert that mind is nothing more than neuronal activity emanating from the brain. Others assert that mind is spatially limited to neither the brain nor the body.

For the purpose of this discussion, we must assume that mind does exist. Tyranny is defined as a situation in which someone or something controls how you are able to live, think and act in an unfair way.

Is the mind being impacted by tyranny? In considering this question, we must first determine whether, if tyranny is extant, is it being imposed altruistically, selfishly, sadistically, out of necessity, etc.

“For I have sworn upon the altar of god eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.” (This quote appears under the dome of the Jefferson Memorial in D.C.)

You should permit no one to force their opinions on you. If we avoid that pitfall, we are capable of seeing more clearly and addressing issues more efficiently and comprehensively.

We frequently parrot the talking points reflecting our partisanship. When we do so, we cease to participate in society as we should. We surrender a great deal of our personal freedoms when we either allow others to think for us or adopt their views uncritically. The only tyranny which exists is tyranny of the mind – a tyranny to which we slothfully surrender.

Avoidance requires diligence, perspicacity, and a steadfast demand for truth. Freedom cannot exist in the absence of truth. (The existence of “truth” will be discussed elsewhere.)

Victor Emil Frankl was an Austrian neurologist and psychiatrist as well as a Holocaust survivor. Frankl stated, “Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms-to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”

It appears self-evident that “mind tyranny” is a fact. Obviously, much remains to be discussed regarding who and what are responsible for such impositions.
