UFOs & Brain Patterns -- Part II

Well, the response to my post about my friend Lxxx's UFO experience really took me by surprise.

The question of exactly when the mind recognizes that it's perceiving something that's "not normal" has started some interesting discussions here and on Facebook and at the Google Group "The UFO Collective," and has even gotten on the radar of noted UFO author Jenny Randles, who came up with the idea of "The OZ Factor," the moment you realize you're not in Kansas anymore.

And it turns out I got the spoiler all wrong for the "Veronica Mars" movie, so I didn't really spoil anything after all. Lxxx doesn't get killed, but she does shoot the guy I thought killed her!

But back to UFOs. I had another chat with Lxxx and she elaborated on her experience for me:
"Btw, to me, that 'feeling' you mentioned is the pause before 'fight or flight'. It's no longer the only two options. We've progressed to the third option of 'the danger may be worth it to experience something new'".
That's a mind-bender. The danger may be worth it to experience something new! I'm beginning to think that Lxxx represents some kind of evolutionary leap, or at least she's a really good candidate to lead NASA's next interplanetary mission. Lxxx, how did I not see this in you before??? (I know she's reading this)
Who knows? Maybe the danger is worth it...

And now we need a new expression... Something like... "fight or flight or fright" or "fight or flight or might" or "fight or flight or shite."

Okay, I'll stop now.

Anyway, I think I know how I'll react the next time I see a UFO; I'll choose the third option...
