Unidentified?

Picture the natives of an undiscovered land, hundreds of years ago, standing on the shore trying to identify some large white objects appearing over the horizon. Nothing like them had been seen before. Soon they were recognized as the white sails of great ships.

When unknown phenomena appear on our horizon, we try to identify them, to place them within our own frame of reference. But often we are not immediately able to identify these new phenomena. So humanity frequently fears the unknown. Or it may be excited by the possibilities.
