The link between race in America and alien abduction runs across the entire country and is the American form of flying saucer synchronicity that Jung investigated. The projection onto the Cosmos of political circumstance is both unconscious and hilarious. When the producers of Planet of the Apes premiered the film, Sammy Davis Jr. came up and congratulated them on making the best movie on race relations he had ever seen. They were flummoxed and had no clue that the film had those overtones.
You cannot imagine the helix sport phenomena springing forth in California after 1955 without understanding that white kids working with aerodynamics and plastics to form surfboards and hang-gliders while girls with micro bikinis waited in VW vans, is a form of white privilege. That entire industry rests on the factory work done during WWII by blacks who headed west for work, bringing with them the helix imagination of jazz. Surf rock and surfing is really a black form of freedom grafted onto an idle middle class.
There was one missing ingredient though... the existent racism of Japanese displacement in the west. The transposition of eastern and black American forms of free expression onto surfers (and aerospace) was possible because the practice of racial exclusion was perfected in California first on the Japanese American. Then the bomb and it's plastic and helix freedoms were no longer tied to death and war, but to a white Polynesian fantasy of free play. Improvisation is no longer black or Asian, it's detached and can twist and turn on the pristine ocean of the untroubled white unconscious. See John McCraken.
