Why are so many people interested in "ETs" and "UFOs?"
Non-Human Intelligence Phenomena
There are a multitude of reasons. In my view, the
most compelling of a fledgling humanity are still to look for solace outside
itself and to find modern myths in the post-modern age of anti-heroes and
the love song of J. Alfred Prufrock.
What, to the best of my knowledge, got me started, was
in great part the desire to find help with changing an insane system of
predation that I feel ill-equipped to transform single-handedly. Only a
race can change a race. As we are our brother's (sic) keeper, I feel the
same is true on the level of races.
I found, some others have begun to realize the likelihood,
either through extraordinary experience or inner prompting, that we may
be part of a larger community of beings. For them, the cosmos is filled
with intelligent life that they wish to contact. They may seek contact
with life so different that great care must be taken to insure success.
Several groups, e.g. CSETI, realized that the only safe assumption of such
an endeavor could be that consciousness is the one common denominator for
exploration. Any life more alien, if it exists, may be too completely alien
at this moment.
To make contact then means three things. We must
become conscious of who we are, of who our neighbor here at home is, and
who other beings are. Thus the search for contact reaches in two directions
simultaneously. While we reach for the stars and other dimensions of experience,
we must reach for the intimacy of our own being right here within ourselves.
In the middle of those two directions we may find
our friends, our neighbor, our partners, our lover. I sometimes joke that
the most alien creature we will ever encounter is a member of the opposite
sex. What wonderful opportunities they give us to practice contact and
make meaning. Imagine, what incredible opportunities may await us, if we
were to meet with beings, who might add immeasurably to our understanding
Skeptics may ask, why do this? Why not leave good
enough alone? Well, it is a personal choice. The only answer I have for
them is because, because I seek communion, because I choose to do this.
Life is full of mystery, suspense, and discovery.
PS: (11-21-1999) Since I first wrote the words above I have come
to view this phenomenon as perhaps the most spiritually challenging subject
in my life. While I like to maintain a balanced view, I now see some
sinister possibilities to this phenomenon that need to be addressed in
order for humanity to move forward in its evolution. We need to realize
what has really been going on for a long time and what is happening right
now, in order to become informed participants in our own evolution!
Researching the links below may take you on a journey that will change
your life forever. If you have the courage to face the world with
an open mind and a strong heart, I believe, you will not regret to proceed.

David M. Jacobs,
David Jacobs, Ph.D. caught my attention on the June
6, 2000 Jeff Rense "Sightings" program. His sober, humble, and
balanced presentantion impressed me. He is the director of The International
Center for Abduction Research (ICAR). It appears after cursory observation,
that his work offers a substantial contribution to all who wish to better
understand what appears to be happening regarding the "abduction" phenomena.
Clear - "Reaching For Reality"
Seven first person accounts of alien abduction compiled and annotated
by psychotherapist and lecturer, Constance Clear, M.A., M.S.W., a very
thought provoking work about people who are recollecting their challenging
and wide ranging experiences without the aid of hypnosis.

Center for the Search of Extraterrestrial
founded by Dr. Steven Greer, a very devoted emergency physician and family
man, who has attempted to dissolve the secrecy surrounding the evidence
in the hands of a whole cadre of highly credible people waiting for an
opportunity to present their knowledge in an effective public forum not
susceptible to the usual denouncement that seems to plague this field of
Strieber - Welcome to the Communion Homepage
Famous author on non-human intelligence phenomena, visitors, and "abductions."
I appreciate Whitley Strieber's contribution for the clarity and non-judgement
of his explorative reasoning.
David Icke is perhaps the most controversial person listed here.
While some of his claims may appear outlandish and bizarre, I find his
spiritual perspective very sound and refreshing. Life will likely
never be viewed quite the same way by those who will take the time to look
into the large volume of his remarkable evidence. He has a number
of long videotapes available that will keep you glued to your television.
His interview with the remarkable Zulu "Sanusi" (Shaman) Credo Mutwa presents
an astounding corroboration to the work of Constance Clear in particular
plus insights that answer some puzzling questions addressed like this nowhere
