Human Encounters with Aliens (#H350)
Psychiatrist John Mack discusses clinical case histories involving memories of alien encounters. He suggests that these cases transcend dualistic categories, such as reality/fantasy, physical/mental, true/false. He argues that UFO abductions differ from past-life memories, near-death experiences and satanic ritual abuse because of the presence of corroborating physical evidence.
The late John Mack, M.D., a professor of psychiatry at Harvard, received a Pulitzer Prize for his biography of T. E. Lawrence and is author of Abduction: Human Encounters with Aliens.
|"We have this notion in the West that a myth is a kind of invented imagination which comes out of the psyche in some way. But they're finding actual physical bases for myth-making. So in that sense this may be indeed a myth; a religion could evolve from this. But that doesn't go against the fact that something physical, something actual, is occurring in our material universe."|
