This three-part series concludes with a look at the last major category of UFO dangerthe psychological effects. The article also looks at emergency action in regard to UFOs, plus a U.S. government cover-up of UFO activity thats ongoing. This article is based on references from the book Fire Officers Guide to Disaster Control, second edition.
Negative psychological effects that UFO activity can have on the populace are fear, panic, flight and many kinds of irrational behavior. The War of the Worlds radio broadcast by Orson Welles on Halloween night, 1938, resulted in hysterical actions, including thousands of panic-stricken phone calls, wildly fleeing automobiles and fearful shotgun brigades. This fictional broadcast of Martians invading Earth produced effects that were a precursor of things to come.
But the future brought things of a real naturethings in the sky occurring again and again all over the world for decades beyond the 30s through the present day. UFO sightings always evoke interest; unfortunately, they usually generate an abundance of fear and sometimes mass hysteria. In the 50s and 60s, the volume of fear associated with the multitude of UFO phenomena was staggering, and fear of mass hysteria has helped perpetuate the veil of secrecy the U.S. government holds over UFO research findings. However calm we may appear at present, a string of related catastrophic UFO-related disasters would be hard to cover up in our current age of hyper-communications.
We dont want mass hysteria, yet it is only logical to be somewhat fearful of UFOs. One of the reasons to fear UFOs is because of documentation that people have been harmed in their presence. The United States Air Force has lost many pilots to UFO encounters. U.S. military aircraft have exploded or disappeared in midair while pursuing UFOs. Not only do UFOs have the ability to control certain military and industrial establishments high-tech hardware, they obviously can inflict pain and death.
In 1969, Congress adopted a law (14 CFR ch.v, part 1211-Extraterrestrial) that gave the NASA administrator the arbitrary discretion to quarantine under armed guard any object, person, or other form of life that has been extraterrestrially exposed. In view of this law, its inadvisable for anyone to make personal contact with a UFO unless youre willing to submit to NASAs quarantine requirements if the law is invoked. The authors of this book have never read or seen any advice on how to deal with a UFO scenario disaster, but they caution us to please beware of the following risks when in the presence of one or more UFOs. Being burned, radiated or momentarily paralyzed are real threats. UFO force fields could induce a hypnotic state, lack of consciousness, memory lapse and submissive behavior. Other psychic effects are space-time distortions or strange voices or thoughts in the mind.
If you find yourself in the presence of a UFO, a non-aggressive state of mind may be your best bet. Your good attitude will probably be perceived by UFO occupants. On the other hand, running around waving a gun will be perceived as a negative gesture. If youre at the scene of a disaster and a UFO is there, please be positive and play it be ear; you may be relied on to save lives; please act accordingly. There are obvious signs of a possible negative outcome when you approach a situation involving a UFO. One sign would be if your car engine suddenly stops for no reason. This is an attempt to slow you down or stop you. Please back off. Another sign would be other power outages in the same vicinity. If youre dumb enough to pursue by walking closer, you may be risking your life.
The authors printed a warning from the inside front jacket of Frank Edwards book on flying saucers into their text, but we cant reprint it. It basically says: Warning: Close approaches to UFOs can be harmful. Do not touch a landed UFO. Dont stand underneath, just get away as quickly as possible, and let the military take over. If its a UFO, dont take chances!
Author Charles Bahme feels the U.S. government denies the existence of UFOs to protect the public from undue hysteria, at least from the governments perspective. Bahme feels things would be much better if the government just came forward with what it knows about UFOs. Bahme also thinks our government has a secret branch of the military and CIA working to learn from UFO air flight technology through observation or other means. The goal here would be to advance our flight capabilities and surveillance techniques.
Much evidence suggests our newer secret planes resemble triangular-shaped UFOs. Anyone whose mind is based on reality can clearly see that we are outclassed by UFOsthat UFOs may command the skies and assert influence on what happens beneath the skies. Unfortunately, we may meet with more UFO malevolence if we only desire UFO technology and not UFO occupants, not the universal message and advanced philosophies the UFO occupants intend for us.
