With reference to statements I made on Coast to Coast, I was
speaking of information I received from 3 theoretical physicists
that I had consulted regarding information that several
experiencers had passed to me independently. I asked if it was
scientifically possible and discussed the answers I received
from them. Are you suggesting that these highly respected
physicists who've worked at Harvard and MIT are out in woo woo
land?

There has been much discussion recently about other dimensions,
parallel universes, and other planes of existence. It is all
theoretical and highly speculative. But I've been asked to
express an opinion about it, along with religious belief
systems, so many times, that I included a discussion of
alternative hypotheses, including psychological explanations, in
the last chapter of "The Alien Abduction Files. In the past,
I've refused to engage in this type of speculation, because I
find it uncomfortable. But I have addressed it recently. What
some consider mysticism, others consider science. It is in my
gray basket. But I will discuss what others have hypothesized,
when asked.

I have certainly not thrown western scientific materialism out
the window. I have merely stated that some abduction related
phenomena cannot be adequately explained within the tenets of
our current scientific paradigms. For example, how does one
explain telepathic communication, light orbs, and passing
through solid surfaces? We'd have to state that it is a figment
of one's imagination. Yet, hundreds or thousands of individuals
from around the world have described the same phenomena, in
conjunction with UFO abductions.

I disagree with your final assessment of abduction experiencers.
There is consistency that you couldn't possibly have knowledge
of. It is information that researchers, such as myself, hide
from others. We use it as a ruler to measure the veracity of
one's claim. I would never reveal this information.

Just as an aside, approximately four years ago, Budd Hopkins and
I discussed my book. I was apprehensive about writing it, but he
urged me to proceed. I had a great deal of respect for Budd's
work and the compassion and kindness that he carried for
experiencers. We can learn much more from the well grounded,
well educated, perceptive and scientifically knowledgeable
experiencers that share their information with us quietly and
anonymously, than we can from those who admonish us to watch out
for the whackos.

I've been involved in UFO and abduction research for 23 years
and have three books and many essays to my credit. In addition
to this, I have lectured across the United States, appeared as
an on-camera expert on television shows, and made guest
appearances on hundreds of radio shows. However, I'm not
familiar with your work. Will you please send a list of your
publications to me?
