Pilots to Tell Their UFO Stories for the First Time :: 12-Nov-2007 @ 11AM, National Press Club :: Former Arizona Governor Fife Symington will moderate a distinguished panel of former high-ranking government, aviation, and military officials from seven countries to discuss close encounters with what the US Air Force describes as Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs). Representatives from France, England, Belgium, Chile, Peru, Iran and the US will call for the US Government to join in an international dialogue and re-open its investigation – which the Air Force shut down over 30 years ago – in cooperation with other governments currently dealing with this unusual and controversial phenomenon. While on active duty, the panelists have either witnessed a UFO incident or have conducted an official investigation into UFO cases relevant to aviation safety and national security. Panel: Ray Bowyer, Captain, Aurigny Air Services, Channel Islands • Rodrigo Bravo, Captain and Pilot for the Aviation Army of Chile • General Wilfried De Brouwer, former Deputy Chief of Staff, Belgian Air Force (Ret.) • John Callahan, Chief of Accidents and Investigations for the FAA, 1980’s (Ret.) • Dr. Anthony Choy, founder, 2001, OIFAA, Peruvian Air Force • Jean-Claude Duboc, Captain, Air France (Ret.) • Charles I.

Larry King Live: UFOS: Are They for Real? :: That's the topic of our program here tonight. Our panel here in Los Angeles, Fife Symington, the former governor of Arizona, who in 1997 ridiculed an infamous UFO sighting by thousands of people in the state and later admitted that he himself saw a craft. James Fox, the filmmaker who is the executive producer of the award-winning feature length documentary "Out of the Blue" -- the definitive investigation of the UFO phenomenon. Colonel Chuck Halt, United States Air Force, retired, was the deputy base commander of Bentwaters Woodbridge, a U.S. military base in Suffolk, England. And in 1980, Chuck and his patrol investigated an internationally known UFO encounter in Rendlesham Forest, close to the Bentwaters Woodbridge case. Sergeant Jim Pennison, United States Air Force, retired, was a Woodbridge security supervisor at that base in 1980. He says he sat with a UFO on the ground for 45 minutes before it hovered above him and shot into the air at an unearthly speed. And in Copenhagen, Denmark is Nick Pope. For 21 years, Nick was a government official for the British Ministry of Defence. From '91 to '94, he ran the British government's UFO project at the Ministry of Defence, where he researched and investigated the UFO phenomenon for the British government.

MACLAINE: I think the unknown is traumatizing to people. I think we do have a built in DNA of fear. One of the reasons I'm so interested in all of this—I'll tell you how I got interested in a minute, if you want to know. But I think the consciousness of how we relate to this phenomenon and the consciousness of change that happened to people who were taken aboard crafts [...] The whole idea of what induces fear is something they talk about a lot. It's—to me, I don't want to get into arguments are they real or not anymore. I've had too much experience talking to people all over the world—particularly in Peru—who have satisfied me. But what... [...] I think maybe the problem with accepting it and the need to have a kind of curtain of humiliation drawn is that it confounds us relating to our religion and our belief in God. But what I've found with the people—and I worked a lot with Johnny Mack, the head of the psychiatry at Harvard, an old friend of mine—a wonderful man. And he said that we have to get clear in our own heads and our own consciousness what God is.

KING: Well, what is the—since they're not attacking us and they have been seen for years, what's the fear? What's the government's fear?

MACLAINE: That's an interesting question. I've been working with Paul Hillard. He's the minister—the ex-minister of defense, Canada, under Trudeau. He is upset because the Americans are planning the weaponization of space, as though they are enemies.

KING: Really?

MACLAINE: Yes. And it is very troubling to him. It came out of a project called Project Paper Clip, in which—and this is what Eisenhower warned us against—the sustention of the military industrial complex. In order to extend the power and the funding of the military industrial complex, you have to be afraid of things. Number one was communism. If that petered out, number two is terrorism. That's here for a while. Number three is asteroids. And number four is extraterrestrials. So there might be a built in reasoning here to have induced fear just to keep the military industrial complex going.

p206. Chapter Eight, Theory and Theatricality, A Puzzle

Plato's depictions of intellectual labor in his dialogues contain a puzzle. On the one hand, the dialogues voice some of the most aggressive attacks on the intellectual merit of theatrical enterprises in all of Western literature. Most famously, the Republic banishes poetry from the ideal city (607a-e). In the Law, moreover, the Athenian Stranger decries the deterioration of democratic politics into a "wretched theatocracy" (theatrokratia, 701a1). On the other hand, Plato likens serious intellectual toil, including philosophic understanding, to being a theater-goer. Throughout his dialogues he sustains a delicate metaphor: "Intellectual labor is like the activity of being a theates," where theates refers to an audience member at the theater, during the dramatic competitions held on grand civic festival occasions. Plato builds this metaphor by making extensive and patterned use of a cluster of technical terms that the Athenians used to describe the experience of spectating in the theater. These terms, from which the English word "theory" derives, include theoreo ("to be a spectator," especially in the theater), theoros (the state ambassador sent to the oracles or games in other cities), theoria (the practice of sending theoroi to oracles and games abroad), theorema ("sight, spectacle"), theaomai ("to attend theater, gaze at, be a spectator"), thea and theama ("vision, sight, spectacle"), theates ("theater-goer").1 For example, in the Republic, Socrates speaks of philosophic understanding as the "theoria of all time and being" (kai theoria pantos men chronou pases de ousias, 486a7), and as "spectating what is" (ten tou ontos thean, 525a1).

Commentators have not much noticed this puzzle. Focusing only on how this cluster of terms connotes a link between viewing and learning,2 they stress that Plato suggests that philosophy is a better sort of vision, a training in "seeing" the Forms.3 Plato does, of course, do this. Plato and others do use the terminology of theory to "signify mental activity, not the functioning of the eyes."4 But Plato portrays philosophy as a form of "theorizing" for additional reasons as well. In particular, the studied deployment of this vocabulary signals an exploration of continuities between democratic politics and philosophic practice. The thea- cluster of terms, especially in the late fifth century and throughout the fourth, evoked not just a sensory experience of viewing and not just the mental activity of thinking. It also recalled the vigorous civic practice of being a theates whereby men experientially encountered their democratic citizenship.5

In this chapter, I show that Plato indeed sustains the metaphor that intellectual toil is like the activity of a theates throughout the dialogues. I examine the dramatic setting, the portrayal of the behaviour of Socrates and other speakers, and the substantive arguments regarding the nature of intellectual work. I argue that the metaphor Plato employs asks one to consult one's own demotic experience as a theates for some help in imagining what the strange activity of philosophy is like as well as to understand its political import. In so doing, Plato does not neccessarily render the practice of philosophy less odd, only more imaginable.
