Well, that is history and he is sticking with it!
Google "flying saucers." 10's of MILLIONS have seen them and hundreds of thousands claim "alien abduction." There are hundreds of PHOTOS of them as well.
Optical illusions are very REAL.
For the folks seeing them they are a real "threat to humanity."
Illusions are NOT hallucinations. The former can be seen by many. The latter can only be seen by individuals.
Professional movie makers use them all the time and they are the bread and butter of professional magicians. Many religions use them as well.
Since Paperwhites and Fires have screens for VISUAL reading and viewing, wny should they be different than all other visual peceptions?
