And GOD said: Let there be all manner of confusing Lights to keep these knuckleheads humble.

As we've seen, BOLs enter the UFO case files in a variety of forms and behaviors. Some [few] are "ball lightning". Some more are probably "scientifically interesting" physical phenomena, which only remain unstudied because they sound to much like "forbidden topics" to the established cowards who refuse to peek outside their entrained boxes. Others may be denizens of the spirit world or denizens from worlds unimagined. One such possibility comes anew from modern science's theories of the microworld. In an attempt to cope with the mysteries of subatomic particles and physical forces, we are hearing talk of the physical universe being composed of many dimensions beyond the three that we are comfortably used to. Although controversial in every sense, one cannot reject the possibility that in these "extra" [6? 7?] dimensions some forms of structures exist composed of arrangements in dimension greater than our own. Such a structure could never fully manifest in our three-space but could it not "penetrate" it? And if so, what would it be like? A not outrageous guess is that the penetration would be "simple" [i.e. geometric] and energetic [i.e. involving light]. Perhaps an illuminated sphere would suddenly appear from "nowhere", meander un-understandably about the landscape, be unable to be "grasped" in any way, and just as suddenly disappear into nothingness. Some ideas like this were presaged by Edwin Abbott in his late 1800s short novel Flatland. It's a good read and consciousness opening. But I doubt that Zaggle*#Scark^% of the 11th dimension is the agent behind many of our lights cases.

I am much more ready to go with Spiritual agencies [whether angelic or "just" The Good People] for some of the lights than extradimensional penetrators. A possible type of this involves lights surrounding religious places [ex. shrines] or persons claiming visions and messages. Most of these are "objectively dangerous" of course, as the describers tend to be emotionally taken up with the core beliefs. But there is a set of incidents wherein we have, in my opinion, more objective reports. This is the activity surrounding the "Welsh Revival" of 1905. The events surrounded a Welsh farm wife with the quintessential Welsh name of Mary Jones. She claimed to see lights in the sky around her home, which then were joined by bedroom visitations from angels, who would kneel and pray with her and give her messages and encouragement to take these messages to her Welsh countrymen. It was all about the loss of the spiritual and the religious due to the modern world. It was a message in harmony with what many people felt, and she got a large following. Of course, Londoners viewed all this as the mediaeval backwardness of simple folks and sent reporters to Wales to get the story and some laughs. One such reporter showed up and walked the country roads with a local who pointed out one of the lights to him, some distance away. He wasn't impressed. Later walking alone, he had a second encounter: "A still more remarkable light appeared after the farmer and I had parted company. Faint at first, it rapidly gained dazzling intensity, when from a globe-like center it flung out nine long, distinct radiations. It lingered for a full 60 seconds and expired. A similar display occurred on the road while once a curious gleam shot across my path and circled around me." The London reporter was properly boggled by this and stuttered about maybe it being "atmospheric conditions". Obviously he could not even with several encounters peer very far beyond his box. When alleged "scientific skeptics" say these same things today, they are not only just B.S-ing but they are choosing to just ignore the totality of the situation itself [with all the associated "coincidences" which must be waved off]. Was this "spirit"? Who can say? We surely can say that something happened that was not explainable.

One of my favorite BOL stories was told to John Timmerman by a retired Alaska Highway Patrolman. This was in Paxson, Alaska in 1976, on a dark gloomy day. He was on an emergency run driving his vehicle. The roads were covered with dry snow, but he was used to this driving and there was no traffic. He was blasting away at 80 mph. Suddenly a lightball came down the road right at him. He swerved slightly to his left, and the BOL did the opposite and passed him by. Then it happened again. And then again. And again...each time pushing him a little further to the left lane. Thoroughly bamboozled by this, he decided to just go over into the left lane and drive there. As he did this, he rounded a curve and there was a bull moose standing in the right lane of the road. "If I would have stayed where I should have been, I would have hit him. Dead center. I would have hit that moose and if you hit one it will kill you." He felt that the BOL was alive. "All I know is there's something out there that I don't know." Amen, brother.

My very favorite BOL case is pure "caveat emptor" as it has no investigation, no interview, just the story told. But what-the-heck? Some campers were walking in the woods when they saw ahead a luminous BOL. It was a shining "crystal sphere" which was transparent. Inside the BOL where a couple: a beautiful woman and man. They seemed to be in meditation. The woman opened her eyes, and reached through the sphere onto the ground. She brought back through the wall a handful of soil and grass. Then, noticing that they were being observed, they made a smiling friendly gesture, and the Crystal Sphere slowly cruised away. Sigh. You and I were born too early. Un-aging cosmonauts-in-love exploring the Universe in their crystal module... and I thought I had it good.
