Mark Pilkington returns to this in today's Garudian:

Phantom flyers

The notion that large, hitherto unidentified creatures may exist in our oceans and wildernesses is one that most people are comfortable with. But could colossal, primitive lifeforms, invisible to human eyes, also populate our skies?

Trevor James Constable, sailor, aircraft historian and scientific iconoclast, certainly thinks so. Inspired by Wilhelm Reich's orgone energy, Ruth Drown's radionics, the writing of Charles Fort and Arthur Conan Doyle's story The Horror of the Heights, Constable became convinced that the UFOs he heard so much about in the 1950s weren't alien spacecraft, but living beings.

Armed with a camera fitted with high-speed infrared film and an ultraviolet filter, Constable set out to reveal these sky beings to the world. His photographs certainly show something. To the untrained eye they look like discolorations produced during the developing process. But stare long enough and they take on the appearance of floating, zeppelin-sized amoebas.

In his 1975 book The Cosmic Pulse of Life, Constable calls them "critters". "As living organisms," he writes, "critters appear to be an elemental branch of evolution probably older than most life on Earth, dating from the time when the planet was more gaseous and plasmatic than solid ... They will probably one day be better classified as belonging to the general field of macrobiology or even macrobacteria inhabiting the aerial ocean we call the sky."

The critters are, thankfully, usually invisible to us, existing for the most part in the infrared range of the electromagnetic spectrum. When they do stray into our frequency band, they are mistakenly identified as flying machines.

Constable's theory, a synthesis of science, ufology, occultism and cryptozoology, struck a chord with readers at the time; one zoologist named the creatures Amoebae constablea, after their discoverer.

Thirty years on, even ufologists consider Constable a fringe character. But his spirit lives on in lesser phenomena such as "rods" - alleged airborne lifeforms that can be captured only on digital camcorders - and "orbs", balls of light, beloved of ghost hunters, found mainly in digital images. These modern variations have been effortlessly trapped and dismissed by digital debunkers while, somewhere up there, Constable's skywhales roam free.

... Are you familiar with Trevor Constable's "living UFOs" theories he developed in the 1950's, I believe? I think this notion is quite possibly valid for a small percentage of unknowns, maybe 2% or 3%, just as an off-hand guess. Some film in recent years has seemed to show what could almost be described as "sky jellyfish," minus the tentacles. Constable had a slightly-different way of attempting to photograph them, but would be v ery interested in this type of footage as well, I am sure. I'm certainly open to this idea, as well as some others, perhaps some UFOs even having an extra-dimensional origin. See his book Sky Creatures: Living UFOs; a 1978 U.S. paperback edition from 1978 can be found reasonably-priced, with some diligence. ...

That was Trevor James Constable’s argument in The Cosmic Pulse of Life
“Trevor James Constable was an early UFO writer who believed that the UFO phenomenon was best explained by the presence of enormous amoeba-like animals inhabiting earth's atmosphere.”

This excerpt from a 2001 article provides a general overview of Constable, his influences, and his work.

The Constable Quantum - Creatures Of The Unseen Realm

Constable-1.gif


Like various insects beset with very specific visual spectra, we too remain absolutely blind to much of what is really there, our senses simply not atuned or designed to perceive beyond a given spectrum. Trevor James Constable is a name synonymous with the study of 'ethereal' beings and creatures inhabiting our skies, our atmosphere, our world -- even the UFO itself, according to Constable, can be a living bioform.

Not unlike Dr. Pretorius in H.P. Lovecraft's eerie science fiction, From Beyond, we stand oblivious to the swarm of bioforms which inhabit the dimension of time-space around us. In order to become aware of these bioforms, we need to broaden our spectral perception. Dr. Pretorius, as the story goes, invented a powerful tuning fork, of sorts, which resonated a unique vibratory frequency corresponding to the human pineal gland, ie, "the third eye," which opened the doctor's perception to the unseen world around him. But even more, Pretorius inadvertently made a bridge between the two dimensions itself, bringing matter and super-matter of the fourth dimension into interplay on a single stage of time-space. The results were, of course, horrific as only H.P. Lovecraft could envision. Lovecraft takes us beyond the mere unseen occupants to a realization of an entirely alternative world with beings who view us as we might view tomorrow's hunted lunch.
In a far more realistic and comforting vein, Constable brings us just such a tuning fork by introducing a method of photographing bioforms using infrared film. Though not nearly as hungry or ghastly as Lovecraft's 4th dimensional critters, Constable has managed to capture quite a number of bioform entities which do seem to have equivalent photographic qualities one finds related to the classic UFO photograph. Orgone energy, as he explains, is often the culprit in distorted or blemished UFO photographs, and explains why quite often what the eyewitness recalls seeing is considerably different from what results on film emulsion. Are we indeed dealing with a 'macro-biology' in the study of the UFO phenomena? Should we be so quick to shake off any possibility surrounding the enigma, much less limit our thinking to the prosaic "space ship from another planet/extraterrestrial" motif? Constable, it seems, would have us embrace a universe fitting the universe we already know and understand, micro to macro, orders of kingdoms of nature and life forms extending on forever. And what could be more rational? Would it be such a shocking blow to UFOlogy to discover that the "alien" is not so alien at all?

This particular photo taken by Constable's daughter near a "cloud buster"
orgone energy transmitter is an excellent example of the photographed
"bioform" -- or "sky fish" as Trevor calls them.

It may dip a little deep for some, to suggest that what we see, hear, feel, smell, taste and touch is not all that there is. But tell it to the fly, who sees a pane of glass as a solid black mass, or the bumble bee, which wouldn't know the splendor of the colors of a flower at all, it sees only the stark chemically stained signatures in black and white indicating a source of pollen. We both have eyes with which to see, the bee and me, but we do not see the same things in the same universe at all. Is it possible that we could be as oblivious to the presence of pollen as it would be to be blind to ships or beings or creatures beyond our spectral sensitivity? Is it far fetched to suggest that just outside of our limited spectrum of perception, with these weak instruments of detection we call our five senses, exists an entire menagerie, nay, a kingdom, of living beings, organisms and even worlds From Beyond ? If we are open to the UFO enigma, we must also be willing to embrace a paradigm which does not place man and his meager senses at the heart and soul of the universe.

Karl Shuker summarizes Constable's work in a blog page surveying the notion of sky beasts as UFOs.
CRITTERS AHOY!

Down through the decades, a sky beast identity for UFOs has been championed by a number of writers and researchers, of which the most famous must surely be Trevor James Constable, who spent over 20 years investigating this subject, and published two books. The first of these, They Live in the Sky, came out in 1958, but the second, The Cosmic Pulse of Light, published in 1976 and then again, in abridged form, in 1978 as Sky Creatures: Living UFOs, brought this fascinating notion to a much wider audience than it had ever before reached. ...

Constable considered the sky beasts – or ‘critters’, as he dubbed them – to resemble gigantic unicellular amoebae, but encased in a metallic or mica-like outer shell or capsule, and with the majority of their bodies composed of plasma, the fourth state of matter, comprising an ionised gas. Although some critters may be as small as a few centimetres, others could be several kilometres long, and remain hidden on most occasions from humans by virtue of their ability to reflect infra-red light, thus rendering them invisible to our eyes – except if they change colour, thereby temporarily reflecting light within the electromagnetic spectrum’s visible section.

Yet even if critters are usually beyond our range of vision, their presence can still be detected, for according to Constable they can actually be photographed – using infra-red film and appropriate filters. In his books, he published a number of photos depicting supposed critters snapped by him in the skies above California’s Mojave Desert, and one of his acolytes, Richard Toronto, duplicated Constable’s attempts in this same locality during 1977, obtaining similar pictures. Their photos have never been exposed as hoaxes (though Kodak representatives have suggested that Toronto’s critters may be nothing more exciting than dirty fingerprints and drying spots), and show several different morphological types. These include fusiform entities, giant amoeboid blobs, huge bladder-shaped objects, gigantic discs, and even some with curiously reptilian ‘beaks’. Moreover, cine-films taken by Constable show that these objects change shape as they move through the sky, and are luminous.

There are bird species that spend extended and continuous time in the air. The alpine swift supposedly can spend up to 7 months continously in the air. That is not the entire lifespan presumably, but is certainly a good amount of time.
