That UFO manifestations, especially close encounters, possess not only human characteristics, but manifestly socio-cultural aspects analogous to those developed by our civilization, are very evident.
The interaction with the UFO phenomenon, is produced, based on some very concrete and specific concepts, both aesthetic and narrative that are structured on human knowledge. And all this is shown in a disordered way, since each witness interacts in a very determined and different way with the paradigm, but under the same premises.
An example. The behaviors of the ufonauts have been described in different ways. Basically in the UFO literature we find the following behaviors of the UFO occupants: elusive, fearful, violent, communicative, indifferent...
We can also extrapolate a series of basic activities that ufonauts perform when they land: examining the surroundings, taking samples from the ground or repairing their vehicles. And the curious thing is that all these behaviors and activities are shown and exhibited with human gestures (in the face and body) and even using tools and utensils as those of our technology. But what I want to emphasize is that all these points are shown in a disorderly way, even chaotic, as if the phenomenon did not have a defined purpose or a clear objective, as if it has no memory. Let me explain. We can find a UFO encounter where the ufonaut is communicative, and later we find another event where the occupant of the flying saucer flees from the place as if he had never seen an Earthling. Then we find a case of an indifferent or violent humanoid.
Invariably, everything starts again as in an endless roulette that does not stop spinning, and where the behaviors that we are going to find in future incidents seem to be unpredictable. Or are they?
From my point of view the personal and non-transferable interaction of each witness with the phenomenon makes the ufonauts behave in a certain way, possibly in line with internal psychological factors of the observers (fear, curiosity, fascination, shyness, etc). In the same way, the ufonauts show us the interior of their spaceship and invite us on a space tour and in other cases they flee in fear of our mere presence.
Is the witness who visits the interior of a UFO more curious than the witness who claims that the ufonauts fled the site? To what extent can a person's courage, curiosity or fear determine the degree of immersion in these experiences? Are the actions taken by the ufonauts resonant with the abilities of the witnesses in their ordinary lives?
The UFOs, as an important fact to take into account, do not have memory to transfer from one incident to another: neither in aesthetics nor in narrative, beyond the broad outlines, because most of their content is based on a joint and unpredictable construction, that forges at the same moment (so there is no before or after) between the paradigm itself and the witnesses, full of nuances and differences.
UFO events are an enormous psychic architecture that can, at times, interact physically with the environment and the witnesses, causing all kinds of consequences. But if we carefully observe this physical aspect of UFOs, we will see that it also behaves in a random and disorderly way, sometimes the lights of the UFOs burn, and in other incidents they don't, the saucers leave traces in some places and in others they don't. In the case of UFO encounters, sometimes flying saucers have interiors without any accessories (austere in detail), and in other cases they are full of screens, computers, chairs, levers, etc. And all this is propitiated, perhaps, by the innate capacity of each individual to interact with a greater degree of psychic involvement with the phenomenon.
UFOs come from an unknown dimension, highly immersive and malleable to the presence and interaction of witnesses. And so each witness has the opportunity to translate different narrative and visual schemes into their experience. UFOs represent an artificial "reality" built on human socio-cultural elements, by trying to decode a wide and disconcerting unknown cognitive phenomenon that goes beyond the range of ordinary senses.
The closest thing we know to all this would be an immersion in a powerful virtual reality, with physical effects, which would originate at the very moment of our connection, and whose characters and scenarios react to our unconscious desires, without the individual himself being aware that the whole universe he is witnessing and experiencing is being constructed in part, not only with his presence, but, with high doses of creativity, depending on each witness.

What are UFOs really? Are they physical artifacts piloted by beings, entities or creatures from outer space? Or is it, on the contrary, an unknown cognitive phenomenon linked to the witness's psyche?
It is interesting to point out that, whether or not this second approach is true, which causes panic among enthusiasts of flying saucers of nuts and bolts, the simple fact that the very casuistry makes us rethink in such a way the nature of UFOs, clearly indicates that we are faced with a much more complex and diffuse paradigm than we initially intuited.How is it possible that the study of close encounters with UFOs has motivated more than 300 different hypotheses to explain their origin and purpose? What does this intellectual confusion tell us? Could an extraterrestrial civilization provoke such chaos in its manifestation before human beings and lead us to pose so many possible answers?
For example, in the same decades of intense UFO activity, there were also, in parallel, hundreds of encounters with unknown creatures and beings that we link to the ufological paradigm simply because UFOs were protagonists in the media, but these apparitions were extremely disconcerting, as much, if not more, than UFOs, and were not associated with the vision of unknown flying objects.We must be clear, so as not to get into any misunderstanding, that to defend the extraterrestrial hypothesis we must overlook most of the encounters with UFOs and their occupants. We must focus exclusively on distant sightings and radar echoes and little else. As soon as we get access to a large group of highly strange UFO incidents, our doubts go up in an alarming way. So much so that even scholars like Dr. Hynek had no choice but to admit that the UFO paradigm had little or nothing to do with extraterrestrial visitors. And he came to this conclusion in a very simple way. Hynek went deeper into the analysis of the cases. But the enthusiasts in the flying saucers defend themselves from these heterodox approaches with arguments far from what the real study of UFOs offers us. Many researchers claim that the behavior of an extraterrestrial civilization that would take thousands of years of technological evolution would be incomprehensible to human society, even to our most qualified scientists.
But what these supposed specialists forget or ignore in a premeditated way, is that the content of the UFO literature is perfectly understandable for us, without any problem, nor evolutionary bias. What happens is that the incidents don't fit anywhere, which is something else very different. Let me explain.
Do you understand that a strange entity descends from a UFO and violently strikes a witness? That a UFO occupant tells a person that a future cataclysm is going to happen that is not fulfilled? Or that it simply asks where it has landed with its ship, or what time of day it is? Is it hard to understand that several small humanoids jump from inside a UFO to slap a young shepherd? Or that several occupants of a UFO are engaged in repair work on their ships as if they were mechanics? or dozens of occupants descend from a huge UFO to inspect a simple well in the middle of the field? Or to collect soil samples that they put into bags? do you understand all this? Does it seem inscrutable behavior to you? Complex to understand? Where is the incomprehensible part of all these cases? Where is the immeasurable behavior of an alien super-civilization glimpsed? In the slap they give to a witness? Using tools like ours to repair their ship? Pulling up plants with their bare hands? or being asked for some water?
Therefore, it has been a great covert deception, defended by many researchers, to ensure that the behavior of UFO occupants, and in general everything related to the UFO phenomenon, is unknowable to us poor mortals. That our visitors are centuries ahead of us. But in reality, the phenomenon is incomprehensible simply for a very obvious reason, because the cases are chaotic (without any kind of order), ridiculous and absurd.
Furthermore, the narratives (descriptions and content of the incidents) restart in each case offering infinite variations of what an alien visit can be, but always, and this is the most important thing from our point of view, orbiting on human concepts (exploration, damaged, engine trouble, etc). There is nothing else. No immeasurable behavior, no big unknowns without solution. There have been as many apparent disconcerting elements and actions in this equation as there have been witnesses to the manifestation of the UFO phenomenon. And the fact is that each individual who has participated in the conformation of this gigantic paradigm has been adding, in conjunction with an unknown external agent (which is the true catalyst of the experiences), a multitude of completely subjectivized and theatricalized details (as happens in dreams), and which, obviously, we cannot find repeated in other incidents.
Therefore, trying to put together all these pieces that have been individually molded by each witness into one giant puzzle is almost impossible. For each individual has interpreted and developed the concept of alien visitation in a very particular and free way, embellishing it with socio-cultural factors of their own or their closest environment.
It has been an intellectual utopia to think or suspect that UFO incidents were great questions for the human intellect. Cases are not quite understood by anyone; that is, they are stories without logic, and what they are most like (even if they are not) are delusions, dreams or hallucinations (that is to say, chaotic, fantastic stories with a certain air of absurdity). And that is why they are essentially incomprehensible from our point of view, since we want to associate them with the behavior of a phenomenon allegedly orchestrated by intelligent extraterrestrial astronauts. But nothing that we have recorded fits this premise. It's as simple as that. Let's stop fooling ourselves with false approaches that are not based on the matter we are studying. If we stop trying to see what they are not, we will see the true background of UFO experiences. Their essence.
Therefore, if we reconsider the second possibility that we established at the beginning of this text, it does not seem so farfetched to think that this type of manifestations are related to the human psyche and that, in some way, an undetermined external agent is interrelating with us to construct and stage some fabulous experiences that have many similarities with human processes known as dream processes (although it is something else).
Therefore, the paraphysical nature of the UFO phenomenon (i.e. the conjunction between the physical and the psychic described in an infinite number of events), could be determined by the action of the human psyche on a cognitive paradigm, induced by an external agent, which occurs outside the margins of our daily reality, and builds a new supernatural reality before our eyes based, above all, on socio-cultural aspects. But ultimately, apart from their unquestionable reality (although with nuances) these experiences are being forged on a new space/time/cognitive framework where the presence and interaction of the witness is fundamental to interpret or decode the final result.

Traditional ufology believes that UFO events are caused by devices and beings from remote inhabited worlds visiting Earth on scientific or other exploration missions. That sooner or later these facts will be in the public domain and that world society will accept the existence of intelligent life outside our planet without major setbacks.
But we've been here for over 70 years and the situation hasn't changed. In fact, it could be said that we are stuck at the same point going round and round without stopping. And although the possible official cover-up, with all its tricks, of these experiences would have resulted in a slowdown of public knowledge, it is obvious that there are many more factors that have made it impossible for knowledge of a UFO reality to become an unquestionable reality for a generality of public opinion.
And the fact is that the analysis of the close encounters showed, almost from the beginning, that UFO incidents have a much greater complexity than we had anticipated. Because UFOs did not behave like an ordinary phenomenon, foreseeable or fit into our usual scientific parameters.
The study of hundreds of incidents of UFOs that occurred all over the world showed that the encounters were very different from each other, and above all, to the great dismay of the researchers, they lacked common sense, approaching more to experiences linked to mental disorders than to possible events of interstellar visits. If the ufological paradigm had not had physical parts and its repercussion had not been worldwide, almost like a pandemic, it is very probable that, nowadays, almost nobody would remember UFOs.
However, it seems clear that UFOs, beyond being a real event, obey a paradigm of cognitive order, where it seems to be demonstrated that what is observed is close with the observer. In such a way that, although we are in the presence of a "real" phenomenon, and sometimes of a physical nature (with all that this entails), the presence of witnesses forcefully determines much of the content of the experiences, both visually and narratively, as if UFO encounters were complex "psychic" elaborations elaborated in conjunction with an unknown external agent, which manifests itself in our everyday environment, as if all its elements were really present, as if "dreams" could break out of their strict barriers of human imagery to manifest physically in our reality.
It is therefore appropriate to ask whether close encounters with UFOs, and all the complex experiences manifested by UFOs, as opposed to distant sightings, occur in some other way or under other different parameters.
I believe that the accounts of encounters with entities and beings associated with UFOs, although they belong to the same paradigm as the observation of objects in the distance, take place in a different context, much more intimate and more open to a subjective interpretation of what has been observed, as if the approximation of the phenomenon was related to certain altered states of consciousness (which could provoke the paradigm itself) so that these events move from our ordinary reality to a border with another universe or expanded reality where perhaps paraphysical and paranormal phenomena intermingle with the habitual ones of our dimension producing experiences of high strangeness.
If this is so, it is very possible that obtaining empirical evidence would be much more complicated and diffuse, since in this new "scenario" we would not be under the usual parameters of our daily reality, and everything would be radically different. Even our conscience, if we were not aware of it, would be out of its usual limits and would be in disposition to enable certain "asleep" capacities adding new aspects to the experience.
But the thing would be even more complex, since the experiences observed would be the product of a feedback of information between the witness and the paradigm in such a way that each individual would be reinitiating the UFO concept (extraterrestrial visitation) in each new encounter, offering variants to each of its elements, since their own participation would make the UFO scenario (visual/narrative) recreated in a "personalized" way on each occasion, taking into account the cultural and social factor of each witness that would undoubtedly provide personal elements never before registered in another incident.
But the key question for our study would be the following: is UFO scenography a "cultural/social/ideological" concept added to the paradigm by human participation or are the artifacts and entities observed in encounters with UFOs really part of the phenomenon itself?
Personally I believe that what we are studying is the result of a complex psychic conjunction between our daily reality and an expanded reality, which at times and due to unknown factors, is capable of manifesting itself in our universe using the human psyche. And although I am sure that this is a paradigm of cognitive origin, it is very probable that its development and execution is not only limited to the intangible universe of thoughts, but on the contrary it is capable of crossing the psychic barrier to show itself in our closest environment, even to manifest itself in a tangible and solid way. And it must be taken into account that these manifestations are complex "psychic architectures" formed and elaborated from human decoding, which, due to its non-voluntary participation, exerts a modification/distortion of the observed, which evidently prevents the correct reception of the true content of the message that this unknown cognitive reality is offering us.
Therefore, the entities and artifacts observed in these experiences could only be a vehicle for the expression of a much deeper and more complex message that we do not understand, and that "disguises itself" before our presence imbued by our own involuntary cultural and unpredictable interference.

UFOs, especially close encounters, seem to be, or rather behave as, an individual system of expression of an unknown cognitive dimension with a wide degree of contagion, as if it were some kind of virus. At least, this is how it behaved the UFO phenomenon during its peak in the last century, affecting certain and specific people and spreading rapidly throughout the world in an inexplicable way.
Although UFO apparitions are found virtually everywhere in the world, like many psychological pathologies that share common points among different patients but develop with different details, UFO experiences also develop in a personalized (subjective) way in each individual, as if they "adapted" first to the subject's environment and then to their own unique social and cultural factors but maintaining an internal structure with the same basic concepts.
If we analyze it from this point of view, UFOs would be the manifestation of a mainly psychic phenomenon that would need the interaction with individuals to show itself in our world. And how would it do that? Through three-dimensional "projections" indistinguishable from the reality that surrounds it, in the same way that throughout history human beings have spoken of other types of entities, beings, gods and creatures that have emerged from other "invisible worlds".
This does not mean, nor does it limit, that the means of expression of UFOs is exclusively in the "ethereal" realm of the psychic, that is, subjective and unquantifiable, but on the contrary, it would sometimes be capable of becoming tangible in our universe and provoking all kinds of physical repercussions (on the witnesses or the environment). But making it clear that the physical interaction of the phenomenon on our reality would be full of anomalies like those observed in UFO experiences, as well as remarkable spatial-temporal alterations.
From today's perspective we can look back and see that the manifestations of UFOs, at least as it was known and studied in the decades of the last century, developed and expanded as some kind of temporal contagion, and reduced to a large group of people, who experienced this type of experience, like their ancestors in different contexts and cultures, but under an updated prism, in this case, about the extraterrestrial visitation, a topic more in line with the times that the visit of angels, elves or other types of fabulous creatures. This is because this paradigm, whatever its origin and purpose, feeds back into their interactions with the witnesses themselves, to manifest itself before their eyes. We are before some kind of intelligent and immersive cognitive reality capable of elevating our understanding of the universe around us.

If we leave aside the origin and motivation of UFOs, it is clear that we are facing a phenomenon that produces a notable and evident psychic disturbance in the witnesses.
The fact that the observations are so different from each other, and that the narratives of close encounters with UFOs contain so many human cultural factors indicate that the decoding of experiences, regardless of their supposed origin, is indisputably sifted by the human psyche before observation.
To ignore the participation and involvement of witnesses in the development of UFO events is to discard one of the key pieces for understanding the process of how this paradigm can come about. In addition, the fact that many individuals before and after their experiences experience events of a paranormal nature, such as poltergeist phenomena or premonitory dreams, indicate the importance of the psychic involvement of witnesses.
And on the other hand, it is interesting to note that none of the narratives offered by the witnesses offer visual material totally unknown to human beings, from ladders, diving suits, screens, buttons, belts, emblems, gloves. In the same way, the actions, conversations and behaviours of the supposed extraterrestrial visitors faithfully obey extrapolations of human aspects to a context of alien visitation, from the multiple tasks of repair observed, to the collection of samples of the terrain with perfectly recognizable actions and utensils, not to mention the multiple absurd dialogues.
What am I trying to say with all this? Simple. At this point in the UFO research, we understand that the experiences we have been collecting are not the result of the simple, aseptic observation of an event alien to the witness. Everything indicates overwhelmingly that what has been observed is intimately related to the observer.
Therefore, the detailed study of the UFO literature shows that the accounts show a direct interaction between the witnesses and the phenomenon. Otherwise we would not be able to understand the enormous mutability of the paradigm that has eluded any type of classification or analysis for years, precisely because it seems to react differently to each witness.
At this point, it is very likely that close encounters with UFOs are enormous and complex psychic elaborations of unknown origin, which may contain matter and be indistinguishable from the reality surrounding it, and which are projected before the witness (not as a simple hallucination) to make him believe in a supposed supernatural reality (extraterrestrial life) of which he himself is a participant contributing with the social/cultural factor.
Only understanding that we are faced with a cognitive paradigm of global action, but of signification and individual character we will begin to deepen towards the nucleus of the mystery.

Many UFO researchers have been so fascinated by the phenomenon that most of the more important details offered by the paradigm have gone unnoticed.
Very rarely have I read profound reflections on the strange behaviors shown by the occupants of the flying saucers that demonstrate that the paradigm is much more complex than the extraterrestrial hypothesis claims. Since the late 1940s, witnesses have described numerous disconcerting behaviors in our so-called space visitors. UFO crew members have been scary, curious, funny, evasive, talkative, violent, indifferent, rude, generous, terrifying and even absurd.
I believe few researchers have questioned how it is possible that alleged aliens can repeat over and over again such a variety of behaviors in their landings as if in each case these actions were restarted again, since they are never developed but simply outlined. Let me explain.
We have dozens of incidents where UFO occupants are frightened by the human presence, but in the same way we have the same amount of reports that tell us about entities that want to come into contact with human beings in a friendly way. And with this same premise we can exchange all the behaviors, from the violent to the curious among all the occupants.
And the right question would be, why do we find this diversity of behavior repeating itself, as if trapped in an infinite loop, in entities, beings, creatures and humanoids of different and similar aspect?
There is no clear description that shows or points unequivocally that a certain type of UFO occupant has a certain or defined behavior. On the contrary, the occupants of UFOs may show, in a random way, as if it were a roulette wheel, since the aspect of the occupants really does not influence at all their action or behavior towards the witnesses.
Enthusiasts of the extraterrestrial hypothesis would argue that the answer to all these questions is very simple; we are facing different civilizations that behave differently towards human beings, but, as I have indicated, the incidents point out that any type of UFO occupant can behave very differently according to the occasion or rather according to the witness.
But for our study the most interesting thing is to decipher why a presumed extraterrestrial would show himself surprised in the presence of a witness after landing hundreds of times?
Why does he repeat his amazement in the presence of a human being in the surroundings of a UFO? And similarly, how many times would he need to repair his flying saucer in front of a witness? How many ground samples does he need to collect? How many glasses of water does he need to drink to quench his thirst? How many times would these "scientific" aliens need to perform a medical exam on a human? Why would a suspected alien stay static at the side of a road while the witness drives by? Why do all these actions repeat themselves over and over again? Why haven't the occupants of UFOs evolved over time in their behavior and relationship to humans, only repeating certain behavioral patterns? Why do the occupants after hundreds, perhaps thousands of landings, keep repeating these same behavioral-like mantras?
We have not observed a substantial difference in content between the reports of the 1950s and those collected in the 1990s, as if the narrative content of these reports were stagnant, or developed only on certain cultural and social patterns; even abductions are repetitive and reiterative using the same simple concepts, whether in the bedroom or any other location.
The reiteration of all these actions and behaviors would indicate, in my view, that the UFO paradigm, whatever its origin, is manifesting itself in our environment using psychic information extracted from the unconscious of the witnesses. And that probably this interaction between the phenomenon and the witnesses is what determines (chooses) the presence of a certain behavior on the part of the beings who crew the UFOs.
It must be made clear, and this is very important, that all the behaviors performed by these beings are perfectly recognizable by the witnesses, since even the occupants of the flying saucers, gesticulate with their hands and faces in the same way we do, showing surprise, anger, curiosity, joy, sadness, interest, et cetera. How is this possible?
This may be due to three basic possibilities:
1. Extraterrestrials use an identical gesticulation to ours on their home planets.
2. The extraterrestrials have learned our gesticulation.
3. The phenomenon is using human resources in its manifestations to express itself in a certain way.
If we had to make some kind of comparison with something known to us, without a doubt, we would compare the beings in close encounters with UFOs with the nebulous characters that appear in our dreams who transfer some type of message.
The UFO crew seems to be involved in a kind of "dramatization" of human concepts incorporated into a supposedly extraterrestrial setting.
Therefore, it is clear that the phenomenon that is manifesting itself to us is using human resources, both visually and narratively, to present itself to our eyes as visitors from outer space, when what we are probably witnessing is a gigantic psychic architecture that is created at the very moment that contact is made, the connection between the phenomenon and the witnesses.
And by producing an anomalous manifestation where creativity and spontaneity take precedence over many other factors, it is very likely that the incidents will restart under the same plotline – alien encounters, as most witnesses, while interacting with the phenomenon individually and privately, are inclined by the cultural milieu to seeing such encounters as a kind of extraterrestrial interaction.
The personal psyche of the individuals will determine, by different circumstances and conditionings, that the occupants of the UFOs will be elusive, curious, dialogical, violent or frightening because of a psychic mechanism that is similar to the one that produces the apparently independent and unique behaviors of the characters of our dreams. It is a form of involuntary interaction that takes place at the same moment that the encounter with something unknown is experienced.
There is nothing more behind these behaviors than a reiteration of the same patterns of behavior, over again and again, attributable to human participation in the elaboration, in an unconscious way, of the phenomenology that they are witnessing and which has been established as a scenario that is a meme in human society.
The scene is presented before the eyes of the witnesses as an immersive psychic/physical projection that is practically indistinguishable from the reality that surrounds it. But after the conclusion of the UFO encounter, nothing of the experience remains in this or any other universe, since the experiences have an expiration date the very moment they begin.

For decades, dozens of researchers have believed that the UFO phenomenon is hidden behind an great camouflage to deceive and manipulate witnesses for purposes we do not understand. It did so centuries ago with the manifestations of fairies, goblins, supernatural creatures and Marian apparitions, and in the middle of the 20th century it managed to mimic the label of extraterrestrial visitors. But, are we before an intelligent phenomenon that perfectly chooses its role to present itself to humans? Or, on the contrary, are we before a disconcerting cognitive paradigm that evidently shows itself with socio-cultural "disguises" present in its time of action?
That all the apparitions of strange entities that throughout time have interacted with the human being have been so reticent and "lying" in their communications, and have offered so little evidence of their existence, is a very interesting indication, and to be taken into account, that all these unusual manifestations may have the same and unique origin and above all a direct incidence on the psyche of the witnesses, which would indicate that the paradigm does not exist independently of the witnesses, at least in the final result of the manifestation that appears before our eyes. Therefore, we should first distinguish 1.- The Phenomenon (the origin) from 2.- The Manifestation (the incidents), which are probably two very different things, as can be a painter from his
That the content of all these manifestations has such a human background (perfectly recognizable), both visually and narratively, is another key that indicates the covert participation of the witness's psyche in the shaping of the experiences, helping to elaborate them in an unconscious way. Furthermore, the fact that it is so difficult to document the existence of these phenomena is very possible that it is due to their ambiguous dual existence, between the psychic world and the physical world, which is why it would be complicated to obtain much evidence of their existence, even though their presence seems totally "real" and unquestionable in our environment. But this does not mean that the paradigm cannot mediate in our reality in a palpable way and cause all kinds of physical effects, but simply that it does so in a different way from what we know, even though its results are practically the same as those produced by an ordinary real event. Perhaps that is one of the keys to understanding the UFO paradigm. Are UFOs a phenomenon whose origin escapes the conventional limits of our cognitive dimension? I do not mean an interdimensional origin as defended and conceived by many researchers for years, but the UFO phenomenon comes from unknown areas that can be accessed by our mind in certain states of consciousness, regardless of whether what is manifested in this exploration of a new "reality" can be made momentarily visible and tangible in our dimension. And it is because of the participation of our psyche that the content of all encounters with beings and entities have enormous human cultural implications and extremely absurd and chaotic aspects, such as those offered by the universe of dreams or, for example, even mental disorders and feverish states. But this does not mean that UFOs are something strictly mental (understood as something unreal or illusory), quite the contrary, but it is very likely that their nature can be closer to the "matter" that makes up our dreams than to a sheet of metal or screws. This does not detract from the mystery, nor the strangeness of the paradigm, it only directs the attention towards other aspects that are more unknown and considered unimportant until now. We have always thought that the material, the tangible, the measurable, the quantifiable, only that which we can put in a laboratory test tube or touch, is what is authentically real and unquestionable.
But perhaps there is another way of exploring the universe that is far removed from the scientific methodology that we have chosen as the only suitable tool for decoding everything around us. The existence of UFOs and other similar anomalies is very interesting evidence that shows that the human psyche is not a simple biological reflection of our brain, but can access much more information from the universe than the sensory organs transmit through the known pathways. In this way, it is capable of interacting with an apparently intelligent cognitive phenomenon, which is presented to us through a highly flexible "scenography" due to our involvement, and which is capable, in turn, of activating latent faculties of our psyche. A manifestation that moves in that psychic/physical duality that makes it so complex, with our methodology, to achieve some kind of response. Only changing our way of seeing the phenomenon will help us to understand it. But taking into account that probably its physical facet, very important for some of us, it can be is only a simple epiphenomenon, that is, a mere consequence of its interaction with our psyche in our environment and not an intrinsic characteristic of the phenomenon itself. Since UFOs, in short, would be portions in formation of a new reality "inserted" within another established reality.
