“A procession of the damned.
By the damned, I mean the excluded.
We shall have a procession of data that Science has excluded.”
-Charles Fort (1919)
When we finally discover evidence of alien life in outer space, will we be prepared for the news?
I am uncovering evidence that even modern (or I am going to say current) science is not prepared to entertain this possibility – and may even be looking right in the face of alien life right now, without acknowledging it.
I’m not going to take you to a chase after the will-o-the-wisp or even UFO sightings.
Nor are we going to be mired down in “skeptical” denial of the possibilities. Science, Emerson tells us, does not know its debt to imagination.
