COWEN: What’s your point estimate of the probability that what we now call UFOs are, in fact, something interesting and mysterious and related to some kind of life from a distance? Right now.

DOUTHAT: My probability that they are something interesting and mysterious is very high. I would say 80 percent, 85 percent. That they are related to life from a distant planet is a lot lower. I would say quite, quite low, maybe 10-15 percent.

COWEN: That’s very high. [laughs]

DOUTHAT: That’s actually high. I’m going to lose all credibility, so I should go a little lower.

But I think there are two things going on with UFOs. One, there is a historical continuity that I find very persuasive between human stories of fairy encounters from the Middle Ages and the pre-modern period and stories of alien abductions, where you have similar depictions of the creatures involved, similar emphasis on trickery and people playing games with human beings, similar emphasis on sex and quasi-medical experimentation, all of these kinds of things.

What that suggests to me is, on the one hand, that you should assign some probability to the possibility that there are supernatural beings who like to mess with us, who are neither angelic nor demonic.

Dumb. Fairies are little women with wands. UFOs are green men in spaceships. The difference couldn’t be clearer

Krugman is even worse. Enough with so-called public intellectuals who literally earn their keep by pushing edgy ideas that are dumb 9/10 times yet 110-IQ types keep lapping it up.

he's right to give credence to the literal millions of encounters.

but to revert to medieval theories of what they really are? doesn't make sense.

at least go for machine elves/multiple universes/interdimensional beings.

I did some googling and it turns out that "lost time" is a common feature of both fairy encounters and UFO abductions

the UFO reality is hard to deny because of the hundreds of thousands of accounts; pilot reports; and now U.S. military FLIR videos.

alien abductions are much more difficult to explain because as far as i know no third party has ever videotaped such an event from the bushes or across the street in the burbs. and many abductees reports abductions straight from the marital bed with the spouse being unaware. just seems hard to believe it's "real". it could be something more like Douthat is referring too but fairies and religious shit seems unlikely. If you google stuff about DMT those guys are convinced they are communicating with interdimensional beings. so could be some form of higher dimensionality encounter in the dream state.

ive done dmt. not many times, but i had the experience.

its not 100 percent certain its communication with interdimensional beings. it feels that way, yes. it feels you are in some place that is not of this realm...not just earth, but this universe... and it feels like you are communicating with things that are not of this realm as well. but i was thinking about it, and it could be you in conversation with yourself, just your own soul. the human mind is insane... this dmt shit saw right thru my deepest, darkest thoughts and feelings about life, right THRU!... either these things are smart as fuck, or its just u in communication with ur own soul. but i dunno, at first there was a bunch of stars i saw, that were of the prime colors of the rainbow, all over the room, then i felt i "entered" the dmt world, and that felt the craziest i ever felt... i have no words how that feels, and in the meantime im just seeing the room, nothing has changed, just the feeling of being somewhere ELSE... it feels overlayed over our normal reality, hyper real or something.. and then immediately, took like a second, and i get bombarded with stuff that just puts my jaw on the floor, and its all very personal, dark, and deep. it cuts. hard. like watching inside of ur dick connected to your heart and ur mind and ur gut... with images coming at you that speak to your deepest desires, hates, loves, everything... then i realized it was that, and it let go... and told me relax everything will be okay...

i mean, is that not ur soul just talking to you? what fucking interdimensional beings would have access to the deepest darkest corners of your SOUL?? and why would they care about that so much? why not ask me about coffee, or how the sun feels like on my face? why go straight for LIFE, death, morality, sex, hate, love, identity.. all that shit at once... why go for my sanity immediately?? makes no sense.

yeah, it probably is. we just create this aura around it, like around so many other boring things, because we need SOMETHING to get excited about that we are allowed to talk about in polite society.

Yes but only as an amateur. His first book was about his time as a young IFNBer at Harvard, and how he was shunned and ostracized by the clothed lifters who dominate the Ivy LEague
