More Roswell thoughts

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
Arthur Schopenhauer

Antony Bragalia has been busy interviewing Roswell Incident witnesses, some of them on their deathbed. He has published several interesting articles based on his interviews, like this one.

In this article in the Ufo Iconoclast(s) he seems to be trying to convince critics (and himself) that Roswell testimonies have as much value as a court testimony that convicts a man to death or prison. He has a point there. Double standards in every aspect of knowledge have always been thw reason of slow progress. But then again, we don’t want to be the ones that believe everything, right?
Enter this very interesting article in Bragalia’s defense, and in defense of a very sane and productive way of thinking:

However, what Anthony Bragalia has uncovered are subliminal clues that indicate something strange happened at Roswell in 1947, something stranger than what the Mogul explanation purports or even what the extraterrestrial account indicates.
There is a sub rosa set of occurrences that show an environment in Roswell and its aftermath which portend something weirder than what has been thus far reported.
And Mr. Bragalia’s witness testimonies are where those sub rosa clues reside, even inside the testimony that is flawed. (Witnesses who outright lie have to have a “seed” from which they formulate their falsehoods. Even their prevarications can contain something worthwhile. It may be harder to discern that something, but it’s there for adept researchers.)

The Roswell incident(s) lie in an Alice in Wonderland context, unfortunately. And this makes conclusive remarks harder to come by. But we understand that Mr. Bragalia (and a few others) are on the brink of a break-through, one that will finally answer the Roswell question(s) and provide an answer (or portion of answer) to the UFO enigma.

This is a great set of ideas, but not limited to the Roswell saga. The Alice in Wonderland context, what has been described a The High Weirdness Factor, IS PRESENT IN ALL CASES OF THE PARANORMAL. Leaving out of a case everything that makes it weird and less plausible, means that this will come back to haunt you, and finally discredit the story. It is the Seeing with New Eyes I had written about a while ago, and these guys are starting to. Maybe the whole world will slowly follow.
