Video from New Thinking Allowed with Jeffrey Mishlove
"Ralph Blumenthal, a staff reporter for The New York Times from 1964 to 2009, is the author of The Believer: Alien Encounters, Hard Science, and the Passion of John Mack. Here he reviews the history of alien abductions, starting with the 1961 case of Betty and Barney Hill. Many related phenomena are addressed, including implants, physical evidence, and cattle mutilations. Of particular interest are the claims of those who maintain they can initiate contact, themselves, with aliens. He also reviews recent U.S. Navy sightings of UFOs. New Thinking Allowed host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in "parapsychology" ever awarded by an accredited university (University of California, Berkeley, 1980). (Recorded on April 23, 2021)." from video introduction.
Grist for the Mill & Thinking Objectively
After listening to what Ralph Blumenthal had to say I went on to John Mack. Looking for truth and objectivity in God's complex and mysterious world is difficult.
The fact is we will not never know everything about this mysterious magnificent universe in this life.
As the blurb from The X-Files says "The Truth IS Out There" but... it is breadcrumbs scattered over time and space! - Andy

"John Mack: Human Encounters with Aliens (excerpt) -- A Thinking Allowed DVD w/ Jeffrey Mishlove."
"NOTE: This is an excerpt from the two-part, 60-minute DVD. http://www.thinkingallowed.com/2jmack... 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. John Mack, M.D., 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." from video introduction.
