One could say every device we have created borrows from nature. That is to say, the nature we know of and there is more than we do not know than we do.
This relationship between anticipation and memory is based on our own experiential and environmental realities, where linear causality has a set route where we posit “if this is so then what? based on the aforementioned principles. The results are predictable to an extent in terms of cause and effect by the use of logic. This is, if anything, a fallible premise when it comes to UAP.
One could also say that no two individuals share the same dream scenario unless they have been exposed to an account containing identical information which then becomes part of one's memory. In terms of UAP the distribution through media may represent a similar process that accounts for a very transient repetition of certain images. These become a waveform phenomenon until the passage of time weakens their impact and then they are supplanted by other images all of which are represented by stored information in one's memory.
This exchange of information is subject to variability which is also demonstrated in the wide variety of “creatures” and craft in UAP accounts.
One could say there is a sublimated reason for resisting this concept that several interactions occur in a certain combination that affect the mind as it is disquieting that we are prone to waking dreams. It is much easier to project the same on mysterious agents flying spacecraft that are real.
