Hi there. I agree that Ivanov never told the whole story and took it to his grave and that his apology to the relatives was genuine. But you don't offer a theory of fire orbs firing heat rays based on dead people, lights in the sky and burnt tree tops. So either he was making it up (disingenuous) or he saw clear evidence that he couldn't discuss. Ditto Okishev who in his interview was happy to detail many aspects of the case including for example naming the military officers who he personally met, but nothing on what might have happened, nothing on Ivanov's theory or the justifications for it. As if Okishev and Ivanov never met, never discussed the case.
[Nigel Evans quote]
This is not so unusual. Above all, we must be aware that the characteristic of homo sapiens is that they lie. People lie even when they are convinced that they are telling the truth. Because it is important to remember that the human brain works 80% on the emotional level and only 20% on the rational level. Speech itself is a very limited means of communication. And the moment we start talking about anything, everything is based on self-interest, self-image, limited historical memory, social expectations, personal fetishes and, of course, fear that is, to a lesser extent, conditioned by genetic predisposition and most of it forced from the social environment. Especially by the current authority over the territory, that is the state. In doing so, the state uses two levers for the decisive factors, namely the apparatus of coercion (the military, the police and the executive judiciary) and religion, with their manipulative assumptions of creating ethics and morals by the ruling class when necessary in society according to their wishes for manipulation of the masses of the people.
