The existence of Ideas as cultural objects.
UFO-ET. fans talk and write about the existence of Unidentified Flying Objects, Extraterrestrials and paranormal phenomena, but first we should try to find what existence is.
Existence in common usage, it is the world one is aware or conscious of through one's senses, and that persists independently in one's absence. Other definitions describe it as everything that 'is'.
That’s why cats, the Sun, the sea and the mountains exist. We can see these entities and tomorrow, we will see them again, since their existence is persistent independently of our senses.
However, when we talk about UFO, angels, ghosts or gods’ existence, we have some problems to solve.
Do these invisible, untouchable, unreliable things exist? No, not as things, but as ideas
The existence of some of these entities doesn’t seem to be independent of our mind. There are no evidences of their existence in the objective world, but this can be solved.
Extraterrestrial crafts, aliens, gods, angels, ghosts and demons exist as cultural elements, and if this is so, the polemics about existence or inexistence are meaningless.
For example, Dr. Carl Jung wrote in the 50’s a book about “Things that are seen in the sky”. For him, objective existence or inexistence of UFO has no importance, because he sees ancient and modern unidentified flying objects as Archetypes of the Collective Human Subconscious.
If we are honest with ourselves and have a rational mind, we investigate the impact of those cultural elements in individuals and societies.
On the contrary, if we are dishonest or have an irrational mind, we will insist on the objective existence of aliens, ghosts, gods or angels.
This hypothesis however, requires obvious, solid, believable, experimental evidence. Mythologists don’t have such evidence at all.
They are fantasists trying to make you believe in their rhetorical tricks.
