When an object is recognizable it becomes a known object, while an unknown object triggers our imaginations into creating relevant narratives. When humans do not understand, they must find a way of understanding. By creating assumptions, we comfort our frustration of not understating the unknown. Unidentified Flying Object is known unknown. We assume a narrative to help us understand. In pop culture, UFOs are a wildly known phenomenon. We know that governments have confirmed they have witnessed these unknown objects but have yet too fully understand them.
