I. Case Studies
Vicente-Juan BALLESTER OLMOSMemory Games: A False Recall Episode
Abstract: The event under study appears to be of an exceptional nature. Though initially undefined by the witness, it was later purported to correlate with a more than modest UFO sighting that occurred in the middle of the Spanish summer and that remained unexplained due to lack of information. Subsequent telephone and e-mail interviews with the witness over the years revealed astonishing new sighting data. A press search yielded an unexpected solution to one part of the witness’s account. Analysis of the narrative suggests that the event is consistent with a false memory incident.
Tim CALLAHANThe Phoenix Lights: The Fallibility of Human Perception and Memory
Abstract: : The Phoenix Lights, which appeared in the night sky in Phoenix, Arizona on March 13, 1997 were perceived by several onlookers as the leading edge of a large V-shaped flying craft, which flew directly over their heads. The witnesses described the unlit portion of this UFO as obscuring the stars above it as it passed, slowly and silently. These witnesses were, for the most part, reputable and they were not suffering from any delusions; nor were they suffering from sleep paralysis or any other temporary psychological disruption of either their cognitive or perceptual abilities. However, videos taken of the lights show them appearing one at a time, hovering close to the western horizon in a ragged line, then winking out one by one. Research carried out by psychologist Elizabeth Loftus, as well as by Christopher Chabris and Daniel Simmons, among others, demonstrates the subjectivity of both perception and memory. Shared experiences of an unusual event are often transformed into a coherent dramatic narrative. Despite admission on the part of the United States Air Force that the lights were military flares dropped by parachute and the disconfirming videos taken in 1997, belief that the Phoenix Lights were the leading edge of a huge UFO remains strong 25 years after the incident.
James T. CARLSONMissile Flights and Fantasies
Abstract: Discusses the numerous disconnects between very consistent witness confirmations alleged by a single individual and the very inconsistent claims presented by that individual over an extended period of time. The case study involves an incident in which UFOs reportedly interfered with the status of nuclear missiles within multiple silos and squadrons at Malmstrom AFB in the State of Montana, United States of America. These differences later proved to be the key factor proving the falsity of the claims, because they ultimately provided sufficient cause to interview all of the witnesses separately — a resolution that was impossible to assert when the case was first described due to the anonymity of the witnesses discussed. Anonymity should always provoke doubt.
