Jon Anderson likes the idea that UFOs are actually humans from the future taking a look at their own past.
He and Yes bassist Chris Squire came up with the idea years ago – but Anderson still believes it’s an interesting theory.
He tells Legendary Rock Interviews: “To me there’s no question. I remember Chris and I talking about those things, looking at photographs of spaceship lights and captures. He said: ‘We’re just looking at our future selves.’
“It really tripped us out. It’s really quite trippy to if you think about it in those terms – they’re our future selves coming back to check us out.”
Anderson’s line of thinking is part of his interest in “the great mystery of life” and connects an interest in modern technology with respect for ancient cultures.

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?
Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
