The notion that the eye RE-creates reality by essentially taking pictures of objects 'out there' has been thoroughly debunked, though it's still widely held. Object permanence is a stubborn myth. In fact the eye gathers the rawest materials (light and electromagnetic waves) and even then, only the tiniest sliver of that wave spectrum, then delivers it to the brain where 1/3 of the cortex creates the movie we 'see'. Thus what the eye begins with (what's really 'out there') is completely, perhaps radically, transformed by brain function. Indeed the brain is itself an object-myth. The real engine of reality is 'within': mind/consciousness. It stands to reason that those determined trandsetters in our culture and society who seem to migrate to the front of the pack to instruct and tell us what we see are worthy of the keenest scrutiny. The Bible's 'principalities of the air' work their effects between the wave spectrum and the human eye. ('at the center of it all, your eyes' --David Bowie, Blackstar)http://www.gettheebehind.me
At spooky Oxford University Nick Bostrom heads the "Future of Humanity Institute" and acts as a gatekeeper of the AI generated reality in which we probably exist. Plato's cave referenced this idea allegorically, as does Genesis.Interestingly when speaking specifically about the idea of UFO's but one can assume he thinks this way about non-funded-by billionaires thinkers on this subject too, Bostrom said: "Expensive instruments, however, have a way of lending scientific status and respectability to a field of enquiry. Academics are keen to put as much distance aspossible between themselves and the kooks and cranks that flock to these big questions.""If large telescopes, NASA satellites, and complicated mathematical data analysis are involved, it becomes harder for outside observers to mistake the work for the ramblingsof UFO‐nuts and other crackpots........... Such social background noise might in fact be one of the main obstacles to intellectual progress on many big picture topics."Some of those ramblings around the nature of reality here, from a crackpot...http://olivefarmercrete.blogspot.gr/2016/01/flat-earth.html
Consciousness 'allows' UFOs to exist. for reasons unknown they are manifesting at an increasing rate, one might say, normalizing. Jacques Valle has much to offer in this area. Tavistock choreographs all 'social background noise'.
