Scientists abandon the extraterrestrial hypothesis.
After twenty five years of sober examination of countless UFO encounters and multiform contacts with humanoids, John Keel wrote in 1970:
"The flying plates are not coming from any faraway planet and are by no account representatives of any mysterious civilisation. They are our closest neighbours, just a part of another spatial-temporal continuum with radically different life, matter and energy" (Keel J. "UFO: the Trojan Horse Operation". St.Petersburg, 1992, p. 175).
Soviet ufologists summed up their experience of about thirty years in the book "Take Care: UFO!" (1991) that sounds a continuation of J. Keel's and V. Veinik's apprehensions. The conclusions made in the book show that its authors have made their best in achieving the highest degree of research objectivity possible in studying a complicated spiritual phenomenon for scientists ignorant of the true spiritual structure of the world revealed to people by their Creator and kept in the holy Orthodox Church. Here are some of their conclusions:
"UFO's overtly negative effect is undeniable. The psycho-physical damage increases in a direct proportion with the phenomenon's expressiveness. And, if an UFO witness survives, even if he receives no physical injuries and easily recovers after the shock, his ways and habits are inevitably changed" (V. Azhazha, N. Vasiliev, L. Veingerova, D. Guriev, A. Ziuzko. "Take Care: UFO!". Moscow, 1991, p. 4).
"It is a matter of question whether the representatives of the other Ratio regard their effect on men harmful and negative, as it is from our point of view? Probably they don't, judging from their propensity to explain their negative influence as the necessary 'educational measures', or the inevitable 'adaptation of a human organism to a new mode of functioning', or a 'trial', a 'treatment', etc." (ibid., p. 9).
"People usually fail to notice how they step by step fall into complete subjection to the source of a contact. And it always goes in hand either with their losing touch with their families and friends, or with the negligence of their professional duties, or with nervous and mental disorders" (ibid., p. 8).
