2017 International UFO Congress Lecture
Lecture: Perplexing Phenomena Related to Contact
“Experiencers” of alien abduction and contact with non-human entities routinely report a variety of commonalities, such as increased psychic awareness, strange light orbs in their homes, poltergeist activity, electronic interference, healings, and other perplexing events that defy mainstream scientific explanation. It is the part of the contact phenomenon that investigators like to ignore. Yet it appears to be an integral part of the alien contact experience for many people. What could be causing it? How does it present? Can it be separated from the ET contact phenomenon? Or is it intrinsically related. And why is it being ignored by the majority of UFO researchers and scientists?
