    The whole thing looks pretty fishy to me. Einstein did not complete a unified field theory that actually worked. Theories are actually a big deal, and tons of them come and go before there is a successful one. It not only needs to explain everything we already know, but predict nothing in contradiction with what we know, and predict new results that make it worth pursuing. That's very tough to accomplish.

    From the rest of the quotes, it looks like a lot of dubious claims presented with no real evidence.

    The Threat looks like a book I'd like to read. It's under $12 on Amazon. :)

    One of my favorite books on UFOs is Parallels by Richard L. Thompson. Originally titled, Alien Identities, Jim Marrs cited it in his UFO book.
    [​IMG]

    "For decades, researchers have exhaustively documented modern UFO phenomena, but questions remain about the origins of these strange objects and the intentions of the beings associated with them. In Parallels, Richard L. Thompson shows that answers may lie in the records of ancient civilizations claiming thousands of years of contact with races appearing to have an unearthly origin. Startling parallels between modern UFO accounts and events described in the ancient Sanskrit writings of India offer fresh insight into the nature of exotic incidents reported throughout human history.

    "PUBLISHER’S NOTE: This book was originally published as Alien Identities: Ancient Insights into Modern UFO Phenomena. The new title, Parallels, was the author’s original choice."

    Top secret alien abduction files : what the government doesn’t want
    you to know, Nick Redfern, 2018

    It draws from FOI, contactee and abductee information and suggests several phases of alien activity.
    The early years, from the 50s, where contactees reported benevolent, non abduction type interactions. Intrigued governments began discreetly opening files.
    A second and more sinister phase from the sixties with abductions and experimentation. The reports included
    Governments became more proactive with monitoring and rapid response, black helicopter type reactions and occasionally their own abductions.
    Disinformation was used to limit widespread credence being given.

    I always thought consciousness was individual, a universal consciousness seemed vague and unsatisfying.
    But in Colin Tudge's 'The secret life of birds', he examines how birds and animals might view the world and describes the new generation psychology:

    Hey, I read 'The Threat' and it was very interesting. If you want to learn about the grays and their hybrid program it's the book to read.

    Is it testable, this 'focusing a universal mind'?
    Could the receiver be isolated by looking at simple organisms?

    In general, the universe seems to use fields, so would the wave equations show differences, say for men and woman?
    Is the information flow one way, just used to create something or duplex?
    What would happen when a person is asleep or dies? Is there interference, attraction or repulsion between individuals, sexes?
    If aliens could manipulate it, what would occur?
    Does it explains things like intuition? Are religious people wide band?

    finished reading mothman prophecies and wow! what a ride!
    definitely one of the most intense books i have ever read and one that will make you extremelly paranoid about every phone call you receive
    the entire book is summed pretty well in the last paragraph:

    I picked up Application of Impossible Things: A Near Death Experience in Iraq by Natalie Sudman based on a mention in the Wild Things podcast. I've never been blown up and don't doubt the woman had some strange experience. Also don't doubt her sincerity - but it was just awful. Unreadable.

    Also picked up Jeffrey Marks The Afterlife Interviews Volume 1. Easy read - be great on a plane. I really do think that when we die something happens and we continue on in some fashion. Whether he has the inside track on it or not is questionable - but he has an interesting approach and his writing style flows well so it was worth a couple of bucks.
