I always thought you wanted people to take UFO issues not seriously,
but obviously for reaching that goal you exclude data or use an
An 'explainaway' is an unscientific attemped for
reassurance, where you don't research the cause and just
give a reasonable explanation for the effect.
"I offered my comments as a way to reach those people who
have difficulty reasoning due to the conditioning of
Hollywood. It is a way out for them; a way to show them that
there is another more rational way of seeing things."

"There is an unexplainable phenomenon and it has a
reasonable explanation, therefore I am not interested in the
cause, just the effect."

"Mass hysteria is any hysteria TRIGGERED by mob mentality or

means it is a mass hysteria, even if the person is alone at
the time of the experience."

Geosound "is produced in the earth's strata. It is
electrical activity underground - the equivalent of a
thunderstorm in the atmosphere. Geosound can be an
electronic-sounding squeal, or an intense buzzing like a
swarm of bees. Geosound is often accompanied by sulphurous
or 'electrical' smells [...]" [Chapter 6, Page 177]
The smells "can be created by, predictably, electrical
discharges in the air. Such discharges change the energy
states of various atoms, and numerous chemical compounds can
be formed. [...] nitrogen, making up 70 per cent of the air,
changes to a metastable state. This energized, or excited,
nitrogen is called 'activated' because it readily combines
with other atoms, whereas ordinary nitrogen does not: for
example, it can combine with hydrogen to form ammonia, and
with oxygen to form nitric oxide. It also reacts with other
gases in the air to form nitrobenzen, which is an oily
substance with a strong smell like bitter almonds. Ozone is
also smelt around electrical machinery to some extent and it
is commonly reported in association with CE
These processes could account for the smell alone, but it
could also have been produced as a hallucination by field
stimulation of the brain." [Chapter 3, Page 79]
