For centuries, folk tales from various parts of the world have told tales of “visitors” that hailed from distant regions of the sky. Believed by some ancient scholars to represent elementals, these beings were often said to be composed of air, and traveled in ships that sailed through the skies whose home ports existed in a far off place called “Magonia.”
Although most accounts of these sort fall squarely into the category of myth and legend, is it possible that some describe aerial phenomena similar to modern UFOs? This had been the contention of computer scientist Jacques Vallee in his landmark study Passport to Magonia, a work that both broadened the scope of UAP studies, and equally cast Vallee as a heretic in an already heretical field of research. This week, we examine “the Magonia effect”, and the influence of this early treatise on historical Ufology on The Micah Hanks Program.
