Is my dream of finding a lost elephant telling me to runaway and join a circus?

Quote of the Day:

“Why do you stay in prison
when the door is so wide open?

Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking.
Live in silence.”

Jalal ad-Din Rumi

That picture will never appear in the cover of 'Vogue', but mark my words: those guys have just bagged the Nobel.

Maybe your 'lost elephant' dream is telling you to go to South Africa, mate.

What are you suggesting, I become a poacher and ivory trader?! Oh, you're suggesting I rescue the elephants and become the Elephant Man. Actually, that doesn't sound good either...

A very few minutes with a Google map shows that a straight line drawn between Stephensville and DUblin TX (the recent sighting spots) runs directly between Goodfellow AFB and Fort Worth's Carswell Joint Reserve NAS. Not only does Carswell fit the line, but so does the many aerospace development contractors in the DFW area. Carswell is the best candidate among them for departure of unusual craft because it's on the edge of a body of water they can fly over almost entirely unobserved to well outside the more populated of the Fort Worth area.

Other things have been not observed flying out of Carswell, such as 1Lt. George W. Bush, not flying the 52 days he was credited with and paid for beyond his documented 336 flight hours in an F-102, prior to having his pilot's license revoked for failing to report for flight duty as well as medical examination. While the recent UFO sightings could have originated from Carswell unnoticed since they made little sound and could run entirely dark, 1Lt Bush could not have snuck out of Carswell in this manner. The F-102 is an incredibly noisy aircraft, and due to running in the air space of two major airports (DFW and FTW-Meacham), as well as being able to perform evasion maneuvers contrary to known physical laws, it would have been required to be well lit.0

YES. Yes I AM the brain specialist.

Unidentified Flying Bush?

It's possible the UFO sightings in Texas are of secret military hardware. I've got an inkling we're going to see secret military tech revealed in the near future. USAF officials are warning that unless their budgets are significantly increased to purchase new aircraft, the US risks having a "geriatric air force". Perfect situation for the release of secret tech.

That... and Iran's efforts to enter the "Space Club" :-)

They say they made the rocket all by themselves and it only took them 9 months. Hrmm, I hope the woman who gave birth to it is okay.

Remember Iran's UFO flap of 2004? The Iranian government ordered its air force to shoot down UFOs. The US was considering Iran as the next step in the war against terrorism, and the Bush administration made a big song and dance about Iran's nuclear program last year. It's not a stretch of the imagination to consider that most, if not all, UFOs sighted in Iran and Texas are secret military tech.

One-percent or so of UFO sightings may be real ETs. This one-percent may contain my UFOs. My UFOs do not smile.

My UFOs are not as exotic as the UFOs envisioned by others. My UFOs do not involve multiple universes, time slip-streams, quantum explanations, or the paranormal. My UFOs are piloted by robots or androids.

Distances outside our solar system are measured in parsecs; the closest star to Earth, Alpha Centauri, is about 1.3 parsecs away. Although it is a common and unremarkable event in science fiction, exceeding the speed of light is unusual in this universe. Travel-times to the stars at conventional speeds are hundreds and thousands of years.

All life on this planet wants the species to survive. I suggest that civilizations similar to ours have aspirations similar to ours; i. e. the desire to explore and colonize space. Their alien life spans, like ours, are short when confronted with the enormous distances making personal exploration impossible. Space vehicles piloted by androids or robots were devised for deep space travel. The vehicles and the crew are capable of locating and analyzing candidate planets. Planets qualify as candidates by having a suitable environment (gravity, atmosphere, water, etc.) to support the propagation method, frozen sperm and eggs, the DNA, or the clones, that was chosen by the alien masters. It is possible that the alien DNA is combined with the DNA of an existing species to increase the probability of success. The androids may be skilled genetic technicians.

Alien space crews then perform a more thorough analysis of the candidate planets. It must be determined that the aliens can survive and prosper prior to seeding the planet. Existing life forms must be analyzed to confirm suitable food sources and disease immunity. Vulnerabilities of the dominant specie(s) are investigated to insure that the alien species can overcome the dominant species.

The vehicle and the androids are capable of self-repair and self-duplication so that the mission continues indefinitely. Since the fuel is likely nuclear, a planet’s nuclear activity might catch the attention of the visitors for fuel replenishment. Redundant visits may be common to update previous data or subsequent-generation visitors.

The androids are usually non-confrontational. The mission is to seed, not do battle, on a planet. They might analyze few of the species to determine seeding desirability. The androids are simply machines that are performing a function. At times, their observed behavior may seem irrational but keep in mind that they were programmed to perform the mission in unknown circumstances and environments. Being machines, their actions are perfectly logical within their programming; it could not be otherwise. The crew neither smiles :) nor frowns :(.

The universe is a big place. There’s plenty of room for my UFOs and your UFOs as well.

Nicely said, Bill. Excellent post.

There's been much speculation by researchers and commentators that our visitors may only be Gort, and Klaatu stayed home. The civilisation that sent the robots may be long gone, the robots operating on autopilot. I only hope our military robots don't get sent into space. I still think Klaatu is out there, buying hotdogs and icecream, but like you say -- the universe is a big place, plenty of room for everyone. Just like Bill's ranch.

And here's a Klingon smiley, just because. }}:-)

But we all know it's not a real USAF ID chart... it doesn't have Venus. ;)

I worked with Steve for several years in the late 80's and early 90's. I loved the guy he was really a genuine hero and explorer. And a nice guy! Its nice to think he's still alive, but... This kinda upset me. But it also is nice to think he's still out there on a great adventure, besides the great after life adventure...

An unparticle does not have one given mass, but can take on any possible mass or have all possible masses at the same time, depending on how you look at it.

Fascinating. Those unparticles remind me a little about the 'swivel' theory, that's used by J. J. Benítez to explain time travel in his 'Caballo de Troya' novels—And idea that apparently he took from the mysterious UMMO letters that circulated around Spain and France some decades ago.
