Collaborations of Abstraction

The skys are a feast for our eyes

Posted on: October 14, 2009

I’m sure some scientist will come up with a logical explanation for all of this. But it reminds me of this story I heard about a Native American Shaman seeing something odd in the water. It wasn’t anything but strange ripples, but he continued to watch for days. After awhile, he saw the ships of Christopher Columbus.

(Any coincidence this happened around the U.S.’s most controversial bank holiday?)

It was only because he had never seen ships like this that he couldn’t really see them. He had no frame of reference to compare with, so his brain didn’t register the foreign objects immediately.

This story may or may not be true. It may have some scientific explanation. But humans are always looking for a way to justify their role in the Universe and explain away anything that makes them uncomfortable.

I’m not saying that there are aliens hanging out over Moscow. I’m just sayin’: something might be going on that we’re just not used to seeing. And I’m not even talking about the naked human eye — I mean electronic equipment as well.
