There's more than

Reply to David Lane
While some of the UFO phenomenon lends itself to misidentifications and to regressions to pre-rational interpretations, not all of it does.
After researching the UFO phenomenon since 1975 I can tell that there are elements of truth in Lane’s essay "The Himalayan Connection: UFO's and the Chandian Effect". There are naturalistic explanations that often are misinterpreted; there are transformative experiences and there are adequate and inadequate combinations of both. However, there aren’t only unidentified but genuine cases of interaction between non terrestrial intelligent beings that use a transdimensional technology combining natural physical reality and the Subtle Realm. Sometimes these interactive events maintain a “high strangeness” of classical physics-defying behavior and require an enhanced understanding of how far the scope of “nature” and “physis” reaches.
Sometimes there are clear, multiple witnessed, daytime, radar-tracked, objectively real observations with metallic-looking, structured craft. Sometimes, physical evidence of transformative contact experiences has been analyzed. So far podiatric surgeon Roger Leir has extracted about 17 “implants” which after being carefully analyzed show a nano technological hexagonal pattern, no point of entry or scars, no inflammatory response, 10 milligauss fields, an emission of EM frequencies while in the human body (including deep space frequencies in some cases) and non-terrestrial isotopes.
After working in the Peruvian Airforce as a civilian advisor in anomalous aerial phenomena let me tell you that there are times when the unidentified have been seen on radar, by eyesight and shot at. Let me tell you that some people involved occasionally begin to receive coordinates and other unique transmissions through automatic writing. Let me tell you that there’s more than meets the eye and that in many cases the extraterrestrial hypothesis is the most rational.
Not long ago I had the opportunity to listen to retired Lt. Col. Richard French. Now in his old age he declared that while in active duty one of his jobs was to debunk genuine UFO cases that implied an extraterrestrial presence. He and others credible witnesses from the U.S. Air Force have declared that Project Blue Book was usually not given the best UFO cases to study and was basically an attempt at debunking. Let me tell you that as of today the Brazilian Air Force is releasing some of its files (like other nations in the world) and is extending an invitation to civilian researchers (like A.J. Gevaerd) to study this matter. Let me tell you that several military witnesses at the Rendlesham Forest incident have come across to narrate what they experienced with a landed object. Time dilation was experienced and also something akin to radiation sickness. Let me tell you that nuclear missile silos have been temporarily deactivated by unconventional craft hovering above the highly sensitive bases and much, much more.
I could go on and on and on but, while I recognize, your three categories (Translation, Transformation, Transfusion) and understand that the UFO Phenomenon is complex and has sociological, psychological elements; while some of it lends itself to misidentifications and to regressions to pre-rational interpretations, not all of it does. Part of the confusion is that sometimes it blends Physical, Subtle and spiritual visionary dimensions of experience. Both science and Integral Theory need to grow to the crucial paradigms-transformative challenge of that percentage of cases whose best explanation is the transdimensional extraterrestrial hypothesis in which the Subtle Mind in the Subtle Mental Realm and Physics interact.
I would recommend reading Richard Dolan's UFOs and the National Security State or Michael E. Salla's Exopolitics: Political Implications of the Extraterrestrial Presence or Leslie Kean's UFOs: General, Pilots and Government Officials Go on the Record or Timothy Good's Alien Base. I would recommend delving into Exopolitics Institute's Exopolitics Journal. I would recommend carefully listening to the witnesses testimonies given at the Citizen's Hearing on Disclosure held at the National Press Club in Washington, DC http://www.citizenhearing.org/
Within our Integral Theory circles, I would recommend looking into Lexi Neale's work as a necessary extension of the Wilber V Model begining to shed some light on how realms may be linked, connect or interact and, thus, eventually expand Integral Theory discourse into how might space-time as we know it be manipulated.
