That which follows this preamble is rewritten from a private email. I think it’s too good to let die there, although still just an idea. Is it more than that? Who knows. I doubt it. The point is that if you apply your noggin to the issues at hand instead of retreading the same old stuff, you can see that there are more viable possibilities and therefore we really haven’t identified the unidentified objects/intelligence(s) or solved the unsolved mysteries no matter how right our “answers” feel.
The email dealt with someone’s belief that “the grays” are aliens and those aliens are cybernetic organisms. This triggered the lightbulb because once again, with the term cybernetic organisms, we see an appeal to our modern sensibilities. These sensibilities are a mixture of where our science stands now + where we can envision it taking us in the immediate future.
Ever notice our proclivity to take this equation and apply it to the “alien” problem as a eureka moment? Coming out of our mouths it sounds like this: “Eureka! I’ve got it! The aliens are far in advance of us by thousands or perhaps millions of years! And by that I mean kinda how we see ourselves now mixed with futurist projections of where we’ll be in the next hundred years. That’s GOT to be it!”
No-no, you read that right. We sound like egomaniacal nut jobs. Gosh, why don’t they just land already?
So, that’s the setup that brought me to a new all-encompassing theory of the paranormal. Please… TRY THIS AT HOME, KIDS. Freeform pondering is much better for you than reading whatever UFO book you’ve got in your hand. (Daddy? What’s a book?)

Might they be staying a step ahead of our ability to convert imagination into reality to either guide us in a certain direction (which has been said before) — or stroking our egos so that we remain interested in them?
And what if all of the BLAAAAH! in-your-face-from-a-thousand-angles paranormal stuff isn’t so much different strokes to appeal to different folks as it is the tendrils that comprise this intelligence, like an octopus? Ghosts, bigfoot, aliens, faeries, demons, and so on… what if they are all expressions of the same thing not as facades but as actual, unalterable components of it? What if they appear on our side of the veil as multiple bodies, multiple intelligences–but that’s only because we can’t see what the tendrils are connected to? But the tendrils are real, you see? Not illusions. It must manifest here in these ways because, perhaps, that is how this reality shapes it, gives it form.
If Earth is Mother then all life on her could be seen as an extension of her, right? You wouldn’t call mammals, animals, insects, plants, and so forth trickster elements of this intelligence, would you? They simply are extensions of an intelligent Earth that exhibit their own sense of aliveness. Perhaps this enigma is a parallel world smearing into ours or perhaps it is a free-floating intelligence living in an etheric realm like a dream. Or something else entirely–not the point. The point is, through this analogy you can hopefully see what I’m driving at.
So then, if you study the enigma from its ufological perspective, it has to seem just attainable enough to keep you hooked. Hence, it gives humanity something we can imagine ourselves doing within a lifetime or two… yet somehow we still claim the aliens are thousands/millions of years in advance of us. Perhaps that projection of their smarts is a way for us to feel smart because in actuality, what they are presenting is old technology, by our standards, and technology just out of reach but almost here. And if you become an “abductee” you will have other psychic/ghost/crypto-creature phenomena in your life.
If you study it from, say, the ghost angle, it’s a similar unfolding, except there’s no need to think futuristically in the same way as UFOs. You build a gadget and the enigma responds to that gadget. Now you think you’re on to something. And the deeper you go the more liable you are to experience UFO/alien/psychic/crypto-whatever phenomena.
If the point of what we call “the facades” of the experience are to rope you in based on your interest or cultural filter, then there’s really no need to scare you with this other stuff you’re not interested in. You could argue that it’s to broaden your mind to other possibilities but I think there are better ways to do that than converting wonder and excitement about something you’re interested in to confusion and fear darting at you from all crazy angles. In other words, there is no reason for an abductee to experience ghosts or people living in a haunted house to experience UFOs and aliens unless they are aspects of one entity being observed, same as anything else we look at for too long.
And so, again, is it possible that these “facades” ARE the real faces of a singular intelligence that has little choice but expose you to all of its sides because you, the experiencer, the truth-seeker, want to know and engage all of it?
At least you think you do. Until this happens.
Circling back, perhaps what the enigma is ultimately guiding us to is contact on an equal basis. Now imagine what it really takes to get there. More than an open mind and a keen intellect, I suspect. More, even, than a standardized ethical code. Star Trek, this is not. And if there’s more to the Mother Earth analogy than I’m letting on… we’ve got some rearranging to do if we are to discover what a sane, wholly-realized human looks like. And that step must happen first.
Just a thought.
