I’m working to see if we can provide an English version of
José Caravaca’s well-received 2022 Spanish book, In the Mind of UFOs.
A small run is contemplated as his approach to the enigmatic
phenomenon takes us to an element – a significant subset – that seems to
explain some of the peripheral aspects of the mystery: the encounters with
entities within the “objects,” the alleged abductions of humans by those
entities in the “objects,” and the not-quite-real circum- stances that have
embraced many UFO tales, for which there is no ready answer as to what has
occurred to persons of sound mind and normalcy.
José has gathered many accounts at the fringe or rim of UFO
lore, some cases offered journalistically by Albert Rosales, Preston Dennett presenting some as
authentic occasions occurring in real time to regular folks, and a slew
conjured with by Jacques Vallee and John Keel and others over the years.
The phenomenon itself has served as an object of ridicule
and, more recently, as a danger to aircraft and perhaps humanity itself.
But the incidents that José Antonio Caravaca deals with in
his hypothetical theory are palpably outside the past and current ruminations
that have submerged the phenomenon in an array of side-bars that have created a
kind of fire-storm as to what UFOs are.
José’s theory is fundamental to the present obsessions with
con- sciousness and reality.
Why do humans think they are encountering beings and their
ships from somewhere other than Earth?
How do the episodes that José examines reside in the context
of ordinary reality when they are obviously not episodic examples of a
This subset – or paradigm (as José sees it) – strikes at an
under- lying part of the UFO mystery.
What do the encounters José traverses in his study really
have to do with UFOs per se?
That is, do UFOs throw down an overlay to maintain their
mystery or purpose? Or are the bizarre encounters José has extensively examined
an integral element, enclosed within the UFO mystery, and to what end?
His newest book offers suggestions, and I think it is
important to factor in José’s ideas if one really wants to find an answer to the tantalizing UFO mystery.
José writes this near the end of his book:
conclusions are at the antipodes of many of the ideas that we have assumed
about UFOs, even of the most heretical thoughts, but I sincerely believe that
this approach to the phenomenon can shed light on the modus operandi of one of
the strangest and fascinating enigmas that human beings have encountered since
they have populated this increasingly less blue and idyllic planet. A mystery
that tells us about the existence of “another” overwhelming
and dazzling reality that, sometimes, and by unclear conjunctions, makes its
way into our daily universe. A paradigm that tears space and time apart and
shakes all our stagnant mental schemes about what may or may not be considered
“possible” or even questioning our concept of “reality”.
Creatures, monsters, ghosts, elemental beings, angels, demons and all kinds of
unknown entities have stalked us throughout history, demonstrating that there
are still “things” that our science cannot dissect or show in a still
photo. Much less contain in a glass test tube.”
So, let me know if you think an English translation of his In the Mind of UFOs book is worthwhile and necessary in the ongoing search for a UFO
