Thinking it...

Ufologists want to prove once and for all that we are not alone in the universe. That we are part of a greater plan. That Ufo's are not figments of the imagination. That alien abductions are real. That space is the final frontier. There is nothing wrong with that. Many of us spend years trying to get answers and we fail to realize at times that we are right back where we started. But what if we did have all the answers? What if a UFO landed somewhere populated and its pilots exited their ship and strolled up to witnesses and shook their hands and said, " We know all the secrets to the universe and we can give them to you." How would we react? Seriously. Has anyone even taken the time to delve into their own psyche long enough to ask, "What would I do if UFO's were proven to be fact?" I have asked myself this very question and to be honest, I think I would be scared shitless. Right now we can hypothesize all we want. We can ruminate on all the right and wrong answers all we want. But if we were to face the mystery head on would we approach it the way we approach the research or would we be reduced to the infallible humans that we are? Would be stand tall or quake in our boots? Would we welcome the answers or would we consider it a burden to know too much? Maybe it's time we started thinking about what will happen when we do get the answers. Maybe then we'll come to conclusions we haven't yet fathomed. The qustion is, have we got the guts?
