Pageau argues this is another example of the alien trope in our culture. An idyllic image of the foreigner on who we project as either the worst of us and the best of us. The aliens in Area 51 are a treasure with advanced knowledge which is being hidden from us by the government. This is an apolitical event. It is also an example of "Meme Magic."
Pageau talks with Paul VanderKlay for the first time in several months and their conversations have matured. They have a very interesting comparison of Orthodox and Protestant christianity and how both are addressing the meaning crisis.
