2017 International UFO Congress Lecture
Lecture: The Co-Creation Hypothesis – A Fresh Approach to UFO Research
UFO study concentrates on gathering information from witnesses, but as we know, people’s recall of even mundane experiences can vary widely. The close encounter witness is at first blindsided with something for which he or she has no previous framework. The aftermath of trying to find some sort of context and meaning is readily available in popular culture, the internet, and from researchers. Using some of the newest theories about psychology, perception and memory, Greg will examine how we should take into account and more effectively assess the most important instrument we have for measuring this enigma: our own brains.
