Psychology is an important part of the UFO phenomenon.
UFO sighting reports have been kept to a minimum
because many of the witnesses are reluctant to report them.
However, this is slowly changing as more people are accepting this
subject as a reality.
Many UFO witnesses have come forward in recent years
and they have informed me about their dramatic sightings. I feel
they are relieved that they have someone with whom they can confide in.
I can see this change as I have studied this UFO subject since 1958.
Over the years they have been subjected to ridicule,
harassment, and disbelief. This is because the skeptics have never
seen a real UFO; talked to credible people who have seen them; or more
importantly, they have never researched the subject intently with all
the evidence available to see.
To a lot of people, when you mention UFOs, they form a
mental block. The fear of the unknown causes many to disregard
this subject. As a great President once said, "You have nothing to
fear, but fear itself."
Some can be psychologically disturbed if they find out
that UFOs exist and since they would be technically advanced of us, some
could accept this and others could not.
I have always enjoyed studying history, which of
course, is of past events. Ufology, the study of the UFO
phenomenon, represents the past, present, and the future. There
are many UFOs still being seen, and who knows what the future holds?
On Nov. 7, 2006, a saucer shaped craft was seen
hovering over Chicago's O'Hare Airport. It was a daylight sighting
that lasted several minutes and the object left by creating a hole in
the cloud cover above it. This event was witnessed by several
United Airline personnel and it included pilots. It even made the
CNN news. Since this occurred, many of the personnel have been
told to keep quiet about this sighting. Who would want to talk and
lose their jobs? This has happened many times over the years with
other UFO sightings. However, after many years when they retire or
in failing health, some of these witnesses have come forward and told
about their personal experiences.
I know of a similar UFO sighting that occurred over
Cleveland Hopkins Airport. Several years ago two witnesses,
employees at the nearby NASA Lewis Center, saw a disc-shaped craft hover
some 50 feet above them. The one witness described it to me in
detail, as it was also a daylight sighting.
I recently had a person tell me that he prides himself
on being a scientific skeptic. But with the different television
programs about UFOs, like the History Channel shows, he has begun to
wonder. I would welcome a debate with anyone on this subject.
I try to stick with facts and only the facts. It is very easy to
Some witnesses to a UFO sighting will shrug their
shoulders and say so what, because they can't do anything about it.
Others, like myself, try to find out more about the mysterious
phenomenon. Some have inquiring minds.
I have found repressed memories in many cases.
Until someone is asked if they have ever seen a UFO, sometimes they will
say they have, and are amazed at why they never recall it until asked.
I have had many people tell me that they had forgotten about their own
UFO sighting or experience until I mentioned the subject to them.
For instance, a couple of years ago a witness didn't recall his sighting
until I showed him a magazine article relating to the same time period
and location he was at that described many UFO sightings. This
occurred in Texas in August of 1965. You can try this yourself by using
the one on one approach. Just ask the person if they have ever
seen a UFO. Ask them when no one else is around. I have
found out that you get a better response. Some people feel
embarrassed or apprehensive when with a group of people if you ask this
