John Keel and Skylaire Alfvegren enjoy dinnerFortean Ufology: Long Live the Old Guard, Long Live the New Flesh

by Skylaire Alfvegren

” The real UFO story must encompass all of the many manifestations being observed. It is a story of ghosts and phantoms and strange mental aberrations; of an invisible world that surrounds us and occasionally engulfs us; of prophets and prophecies, and gods and demons. It is a world of illusion and hallucination where the unreal seems very real, and where reality itself is disorted by strange forces which can seemingly manipulate space, time, and physical matter–forces that are almost entirely beyond our powers of comprehension.

Nearly all of those who have finally come to an understanding of the true nature of the phenomenon have quietly abandoned the subject because they found it impossible to articulate their findings and make the incredible credible… they were rendered mute by the awesome and overwhelming realization that man is not alone; that the human race is merely a trifling part of something much bigger.”

The above quote from John Keel’s Operation Trojan Horse continues briefly on and serves as a lead-in to a timely and astute piece from my best friend Skylaire over at L.O.W.F.I, the League of Western Fortean Intermediatists, presenting some insider history, an assessment of the state of ufology, both past and present; and comes replete with a tie-in to the oft neglected but most important realm of Fortean thought and finishes up with a positive game plan for ufology’s future, which, I’m happy to report seems to be taking shape.

It’s a great read… so, seriously, go for it!
