Jacques F. Vallée


Born
in Pontoise, Val-d'Oise, France
September 24, 1939


Excerpted from wikipedia: Jacques Fabrice Vallée (born September 24, 1939 in Pontoise, Val-d'Oise, France) is a venture capitalist, computer scientist, author, ufologist and former astronomer currently residing in San Francisco, California.
In mainstream science, Vallée is notable for co-developing the first computerized mapping of Mars for NASA and for his work at SRI International in creating ARPANET, a precursor to the modern Internet. Vallée is also an important figure in the study of unidentified flying objects (UFOs), first noted for a defense of the scientific legitimacy of the extraterrestrial hypothesis and later for promoting the interdimensional hypothesis.

Quotes by Jacques F. Vallée  (?)

“Whenever a set of unusual circumstances is presented , it is in the nature of the human mind to analyze it until a rational pattern is encountered at some level . But it is quite conceivable that nature should present us with circumstances so deeply organized that our observational and logical errors would entirely mask the pattern to be identified . To the [ genuine ] scientist there is nothing new here .”
Jacques Vallée

“Today there are still students of the phenomenon who reject the notion that the UFO phenomenon was reported before 1947.”
Jacques F. Vallée, Passport to Magonia: From Folklore to Flying Saucers

“Let us come to the point now. It would be nice to hold on to the common belief that the UFOs are craft from a superior space-civilization, because this is a hypothesis science fiction has made widely acceptable, and because we are not altogether unprepared, scientifically and even, perhaps, militarily, to deal with such visitors. Unfortunately, however, the theory that flying saucers are material objects from outer space manned by a race originating on some other planet is not a complete answer. However strong the current belief in saucers from space, it cannot be stronger than the Celtic faith in the elves and the fairies, or the medieval belief in lutins, or the fear throughout the Christian lands, in the first centuries of our era, of demons and satyrs and fauns. Certainly, it cannot be stronger than the faith that inspired the writers of the Bible—a faith rooted in daily experiences with angelic visitation.”
Jacques F. Vallée, Passport to Magonia: From Folklore to Flying Saucers
