Kodachrome Experiment : Pink Floyd

The name Pink Floyd (previously aka The Pink Floyd/Pink Floyd Sound).. 'derived from the given names of two blues musicians whose.. records Barrett had in his collection, Pink Anderson and Floyd Council...'

It is also said that Syd Barrett.. 'at first tried to explain that the name had come to him in a vision or by a flying saucer while he was meditating on a leyline...'

The first Pink Floyd single, Arnold Layne, was released in March 1967. This name combines the surnames of two men strongly associated with the beginnings of flying saucer culture: Kenneth Arnold and Meade Layne.

On May 12th 1967, a Pink Floyd concert took place at Queen Elizabeth Hall, London. It was given the title Games For May - Space Age Relaxation For The Climax of Spring... and a song called 'Games For May' was performed here for the first time - a studio recording of this song was released as Pink Floyd's second single, just over a month later, re-titled as See Emily Play.

The BeWitness event was held on May 5th 2015. May 5th is known, in the host country, Mexico, as Cinco de Mayo (Wikipedia: '..a celebration held on May 5.. celebrated in the United States and in Mexico...').

Pink Floyd's first album, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn came out in August 1967. One song on it was Matilda Mother (previously aka Matildas Mother/Matilda's Mother).

Synonyms and translations: Mother

Mom and Mommy are used in the United States, Canada, South Africa, Philippines, India and parts of West Midlands, U.K.

Mum and Mummy are used in the United Kingdom, Canada, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, India, Pakistan, Hong Kong and Ireland.

Four days before the Cinco de Mayo - BeWitness event took place, during the course of which two slide photographs were shown, said to show a deceased alien being, an article claiming that the figure in the slides was actually a dummy, was published on Bad UFOs. The author, George Wingfield, gave this purported dummy the name 'Matilda' - see: The "Roswell Slides" depict Alien MATILDA.

While others were saying that the 'alien' on the two slides was a mummy, Mr.Wingfield was claiming that it was a hoaxed creation, to which he gave the name Matilda.

Fifteen days after the Cinco de Mayo event, and nineteen days after Mr.Wingfield's guest post appeared on-line, another blog post referring to a Matilda was published on UFO Conjecture(s). This post referred back to an alleged Roswell/alien hoax involving a woman named Matilda O'Donnell MacElroy. See: Another Roswell hoax from a few years ago....

The initials of this Matilda's three names clearly make up MOM, which is another name for Mother (as in 'Matilda Mother' Pink Floyd) and Mummy (as in the commonly referred to identification for the entity on the two 'alien slides'/'Roswell slides').

Is it possible that these two 'hoax'-related uses of the name Matilda are a clue to us that there is some sort of greater significance to this name - perhaps, a hidden significance that members of Pink Floyd were attuned to back in 1967?

The aforementioned Meade Layne used to insist that Materialization and Dematerialization were key to understanding the flying saucer enigma. He shortened these two terms to 'MAT' and 'DEMAT' - see: "MAT and DEMAT" Etheric Aspects of the U.F.O. This article by Meade Layne, M.A., was published in 1955. He had actually been writing and publishing around this subject area for 9 years or more by then, pre-dating Kenneth Arnold's classic 1947 sighting.

A Saucerful of Secrets was the title of the second Pink Floyd album, issued June 1968. One track on 'A Saucerful of Secrets' is See-Saw.

A Seesaw is a feature that is often found in a children's playground. Its operating movements - as is the case with some other playground constructions - are very comparable to movements of UFOs, described in some of the published reports of witnesses.

Another feature, commonly found in a children's playground, is a Slide. Photographic Slides were important to Pink Floyd, quite early on in their career, as a tool of dramatic visual expression, in concert, notably at the UFO Club, during the Swinging Sixties.

'..By 1966, the group became part of London's underground music scene.. the band.. experimented with long instrumental excursions.. (then) began to expand upon these with rudimentary but visually effective light shows projected by coloured slides and domestic lights...'
