Based on the testimony of 200 subjects who claimed to have been abducted by aliens, this analysis by a distinguished scholar stands as one of the most definitive and well-researched studies on the subject. It persuasively examines the broader implications of these experiences and their larger place in human consciousness. This commemorative edition of the groundbreaking study includes the most remarkable testimonies collected by the author, new forewords by leading experts, and photographs. It serves as a fitting tribute to a pioneer authority in this controversial field, and pays homage to a man who dedicated his career to investigating the phenomenon of alien abduction and its role in the science of human experience.
Dall'autore: Despite official skepticism and cynicism, it must be evident to many people that something extraordinary-at least from the standpoint of the Western worldview-is going on.
Yet the debate that is devoted to reports of alien abduction remains focused largely on the question of whether or not it is real in the strictly physical sense. Some skeptics even claim or imply that, insofar as the physical evidence for the reality of the phenomenon does not meet standards of scientific proof, we can presume for practical purposes that it does not exist at all.
But what if the phenomenon were subtle in the sense that it may manifest in the physical world, but derive from a source which by its very nature could not provide the kind of hard evidence that would satisfy skeptics for whom reality is limited to the material? If so, might we not be losing an opportunity to learn and grow as a species by remaining so wedded to an epistemology of physical proof?
What if, instead, we were to acknowledge that the abduction phenomenon is intrinsically mysterious and, ultimately, beyond our present framework of knowledge? What if we were to admit our puzzlement before this mystery?
Might not such an attitude of humility become, paradoxically, a way to enlarge upon what could then be learned? Is it possible that adopting an open attitude could result in greater knowledge not only about the physical aspects of the phenomenon, but about numinous dimensions as well?
And might not this opening of consciousness enable us to learn of unseen realities now obscured by our too limited epistemology, allowing us to rediscover the sacred and the divinity in nature and in ourselves?
