Some on the video seem to think UFO's are aircraft from aliens from some distant star system, something like we see in sci-fi movies like Star Trek ...[text shortened]... this is nonsense. Does anyone disagree with me?
It really doesn't matter one way or the other. Until such alleged beings contact us these reports will remain in the fringe.
Same kind of thing with Bigfoot, Susquatch and the like.
BTW, I met George Adamski. I lived in Valley Center California when I was going to Palomar College and drove up and down the road to Mt. Palomar every day going to school. One day I saw a mailbox right on the road with the name George Adamski, I remember seeing his books, Ages in Chaos and so forth, so out of curiosity I stopped in and he was there and we had a long talk. It didn't take me long to see he was half BS, wasn't sure how much more than half since I was only 18 at the time and inexperienced in the world but I was taking electronics, chemistry, astronomy and such at Palomar and had some notion of what was real and what was BS. I had a ham license I got when I was 14 so was familiar with electronics for a few years.
One thing that stuck that he said and I quote "if you listen on the frequency of 168 megacycles (Now it would be Megahertz), you will hear the music of the spheres'.
I don't know what he thought about that, it seemed to me he was thinking he could win over a gullible kid but as it turned out, I had spent a lot of time on the frequency around 145 Mhz (the 2 meter ham band) and had access to equipment that would pick up a lot bigger bandwidth than just the 2 meter band and believe me, there is no such thing at 168 Mhz or any other frequency.
If you have a radio telescope you can certainly pick up sounds of the universe, and sounds from the solar system like the interaction of Jupiter and its moon Io which has a torus shaped tube of extremely high current caused by volcano's on Io spewing sulfur right into space which ends up following the magnetic field lines of Jupiter and making a pretty clear radio noise. Those and other kinds of things can be heard but not by a radio with a small antenna just tuned to 168 Mhz.
My conclusion ATT was this dude was in a world of his own making, totally nuts. I found out later that was the conclusion of most every scientist who looked at his paranoid fantasies also.
You would have loved him.
