UFO, wishful thinking and self-delusion.

Jon Kelly writing in the Vancouver UFO Examiner, shows wishful thinking and delusion at work. In his words,
“A new video posted to YouTube on January 23, 2014, reveals evidence for communications bridging the gap between human consciousness and other cosmic intelligences. A series of displays from mysterious sky objects recorded in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, reveal how these entities appear to possess an uncanny knack for showing up in the right place at the right time whenever the cameras are rolling.”
In my own perspective, after decades of awareness of the UFO phenomenon, UFOs are not in a process of gradual approximation to contact, not at all. On the contrary the ufonauts, (if any) are doing in the last four of five thousand years their own thing, performing some kind of operation that we cannot understand.
But there is even more (or less,) because the UFO entities are not interested in telling us what are they doing here.
The ants in your garden probably see something big moving near the anthill, but neither can these poor insects imagine who or what you are, nor will you tell the ants about you and your activities.
Presumably life in the Universe is a rare phenomenon, and distances and differences make the communication impossible and perhaps undesirable.
The big problem of Humanity is self-destruction. It is our own problem and nobody else’s.
