I'd never thought of this before! /sarcasm off.... anyways, I'm kinda nuetral on the UFO thing myself, as I have never seen nor experienced and "alien" encounter........ thats not to say I havent woken up in the morning after having dreams of being shot, injured, or something similar, only to find a marking on my arms exactly the place in the dream I was injured..... AHH! maybe the aliens are giving me visions of this to hide thier experiements where they experiment with me!

Hmmm DMT induced dream states, I have woke up and seen loads of weird stuff,. But i know they whernt real, have even woke up and couldnt move with weird stuff going on. But as i said its just a dream state where your awake and asleep at the same time.

Because it's dark?

Of course. Anytime we have an incomplete picture of something, the mind will attempt to fill in the missing details with whatever paradigm is uppermost in one's mind.

The UFOlogist will probably froth at this, but Venus can rarely be seen in the daytime and helicopters and blimps and flares are readily discernable as to their identity in the sunlight.

Same with ghosts and the quiet of the night and settling houses and hypnagogoic sleep and imagination and...

What about that UFO over mexico city? I think it was like 5 years ago. Tons of video tapes, everyone in the city was watching, Mexican airforce following it in broad daylight... What do you think about that one?

Dunno. Wasn't there.

I carefully chose the word "mainly" knowing that proponents would list exceptions, but that is NOT what this thread is about. It is about the mind interpolating missing data.

"Of course. Anytime we have an incomplete picture of something, the mind will attempt to fill in the missing details with whatever paradigm is uppermost in one's mind."

I find it hard to beleive everyone who 'sees' a UFO is/was a beleiver in things of this sort, and would put details in thier mind that werent actually there. I think the majoraty of UFO sighting are perhaps fake, but Im sure there are real instances where people have encountered beings from other existances, whether it be UFO or spirit sightings. Your argument is kinda like how people sterotype ALL religions/spirital beleif into one category as money sucking swashbuckling hypocritical pagans.

>>>Why we mainly see UFOs and ghosts at night<<<
>>>It is about the mind interpolating missing data.<<<

So your saying because its dark someone's mind will fill it in with ghosts and UFO's? I don't buy that.

The mind fits in what ever fits best i.e More darkness.

Swami I think your scared of ghosts and aliens. You won't allow them into your logic because they have the ability to violate any human at any time, a scary prospect. Correct me if I'm wrong but if your open minded you wouldn't be so sure that they are not real.

Myself have seen UFO's, have not seen ghosts, but they are certainly being seen and I believe that the most simple answer is probably true. Therefore ghosts are human spirits and UFO's are alien ships.

Nope. Have been to Area 51 and Gulf Breeze and seen the Marfa Lights (cars driving on a distant hill in Texas). Would eagerly spend a night in a "haunted house".

Doesn't matter what you "buy". It is a fact. Would there have been 50,000 people swearing that the Phoenix Lights were an alien mothership when in fact they were proven to be military flares? This would have been obvious during the daytime. At night, some fanciful people filled in the blanks with their imagination.

I think most people want to beleive rather than try and think logicaly, they viewing things subjectiely. I have seen things which you can call ghosts but i do not beleive they where. As I just think they wher things created by my own mind in an altered sleep state. Sure there is alien life out there but it dosent mean there is down here. I think aliens is just a modern day ghost, things just created from things people dont understand.

i just dont see how throughout entire time all the many thousands of sightings that get reported(and even more-so, NOT reported) that ALL of them are fake and fall into the category of 'the mind interpolating missing data' ...... you give good examples of hoaxes and peoples misinterpretations on a large scale, but please dont compare ALL sightings to the ones you listed.

Maybe whoever is controlling the craft would rather take a risk during the night?

Even though my sighting was at night and I was high, I know what was there. The craft was so low to the ground and close to where I was light from the light poles in the park were hitting it. You could see it clear as day. Not to mention the fact that is had lights on it as well.

Let's say for a moment that I did 'miss see it' and it was something totally different than what I thought I was seeing....how do you explain that there was no sound?

Helicopters make a lot of sound.. Planes make a LOT of sound and a plane cant stop and hover in mid air.

What was it Swami? you tell me.
