So why do I bring this up? Well, it got me thinking that everyone who is in this field plays a special part, their part, it’s not us against them, it is we together. Collectively, all of us are a force for change on this planet whether you are an individual follower of the UFO phenomenon, a small group leader, a multinational non-profit, or a for profit enterprise interested in UFOs and intelligent life in the universe. One of the speakers described it as a grand chess game with each of us a piece on the chess board. But whose game is it? Is it being directed from above? Or is it totally free will with everyone working independently for the same common good? That is a question for which we may never have the answer. Perhaps a far better question to ask is “what is my part?” “Where do I, or my organization, fit into the grand scheme of things?” “How can I make a difference?” It might be something as simple as inviting a friend to one of these conferences, or just talking to your neighbor about their view of life in the universe and whether or not that life might be visiting us now or in the past. Great things start with a simple conversation and then grow from there.
In one magical moment the entire paradigm of “Man will NEVER fly” was completely transformed to “Man CAN FLY!” So where will the breakthrough come for Ufology? When will that transformational moment happen when it is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that life is abundant in the universe and that YES! They are here watching us, observing us, and in many cases interacting with us on a limited, or not so limited basis. I wish I knew.
What I do know is that if each of us plays our part this day is not too far off. For those of us who are first hand experiencers that moment has already come. For the rest of humanity it is still a magical moment waiting to happen.
I would dare say within the next 10-20 years we will have definitive proof that life exists in the universe, is everywhere present, and yes, some of that life is even visiting us. And I for one can’t wait for that to happen.
If you share that vision and are not already a member of MUFON, or are a past member, I encourage you to Join MUFON today at MUFON.COM and help us bring about this transformation even faster.
Your support truly does make a difference!
