Enlightening, cogent, fascinating
LIke other seminal works on this subject in recent times, this book compiles further great evidence to any sharp observer, but what good is it to know? History has shown that the only way to reveal the core secrets held by any ruling power is by complete overthrow of the rulers, violently, as the people who used to be the "establishment", all of their families, friends, and associates are hunted down and brutally massacred. Nothing can open mouths and force people to divulge secrets as effectively as the threat of death and mutilation to them and/or their loved ones, or the total destruction of that which they hold most precious. Even if one day the entire U.S. government, down to the deepest classified units, were to be toppled, and every secret member of the current Establishment lineage and their families were lined up for execution at the edges of mass graves, where their only last minute choice to avoid their bloody fates is by divulging the secrets pertinent to the subject of UFOs, who could say that the overthrowers would not keep the secrets that they can successfully extract to themselves, just like the people they have overthrown had done?I don't have an army to destroy the entire government and forcibly smash open all of their secret vaults for the world to behold, and neither does any other reader, probably. So coming back full circle along my train of logic, even if I were the one who is able to force the director or commander in charge of hiding such information to divulge it all at the end of a gun barrel, who is to say that some of my underlings won't keep some secrets to themselves or persuade me to do the same? So, what good could it possibly do to have knowledge of this subject?
Not "provocative" and definitely not "mind-expanding". The author is only slightly less parochial and idiotic than the typical SETI mindset.
The picture would be a cartoon where SETI would be represented by a myopic nitwit caveman with his ear against the bottom of a wooden cup held against a desert cave wall with his eyes wide shut, while alien visitors buzz all around him in spaceships far above his perceptual ability, sometimes attempting to communicating with him, but to no avail, because the closed dummy only believes that these were his hallucinations and the taps on his shoulder must have been icicles falling from the ceiling of his desert cave. carl sagan, seth shostak, and others in that lineage of dunderheads are the Lord Kelvins and Charles H. Duells of the present era. Paul Davies is only slightly less hardheaded and has a slightly better clue than the rest of that bunch.
Einstein was right about human stupidity being infinite. Reincarnation will always ensure that the dumb ones will represent the majority in every era.
