I would NEVER hate you!
Au contrare mon amie!!! Forfend the very thought!!!!!!
Vallee says in his introduction to the book:
"Tom DeLonge and Peter Levenda, who have had privileged access to long-denied information, have re-opened the debate around these two questions [1.
questions about human history as related to the Phenomenon, and 2. questions about reality itself]...
...As a reader of this book, if you agree with us to question old ideas and entrenched theories, you enter a world of dusty records, tentative
interpretations and irreconcilable ideologies...
...To their credit, the authors are well aware this ancient material is brittle. They bravely question the scholars' various hypotheses and the
respectable traditions of established pieties, but they do not try to force upon us a new ideology of their own.
Retaining the analytical sense that is critical in approaching this material, they display it before us in all its complexity. They invite you, as
they have invited me, to join a completely new phase of research, informed by the oldest and most recent sources.
The "Sekret machines" have a message for us. The time has come to decipher it."

It is very interesting stuff. I personally like better the nuts and bolts approach because that is more comfortable, frankly, than some oddly
I am listening to this, however, and it actually is making sense with so many things. (including the Holographic Theory of the universe - that we are
in and of a 3D projection on a 2D surface, which has recently gained scientific traction with new evidence - there is a thread on that here
There is no harm in listening to it all and drawing one's conclusions from that. If Vallee says that DeLonge and Levenda are breaking new ground here
in a "new phase of research," I believe him! Would we be equally concerned and critical if TD and PL did NOT stand on the shoulders of what has come
prior to them?
Research is not about painting wildly new theories out of thin air, usually, it is about taking what has been discovered by respectable researchers
before us and stretching it further, to complete more of the image and answer more questions, and if we are lucky, a complete picture, a whole canvass
and whole theory, will emerge.
Incidentally, I used the term "imaginal realm" in my previous reply to The GUT. This is the realm that is both real and not real, the realm of story
and fiction (myth), the realm of mysticism and mystery cults, the realm of magic.
It is the non-place place of transformation and transmutation, the door to the Holy of Holies, the Gate of the Gods. And those "others" who may seek
to influence us, control us, or assist us, that exist either within or beyond that threshold, in our human conception of them, enter here to work
their blessings or mischief, or they are called here, into the Circle of material being, like Joseph Smith worked magic rituals to bring the angel
Moroni to his side. (one of many examples in the book)
The "imaginal realm" is a key element in our consciousness - and it may very well be the "key" to the UFO/UAP and the Phenomenon, as it is called. I
think of the Phenomenon as the worldly and somewhat physical manifestation of the Imaginal Realm, if I am understanding this idea correctly from the
Thus, TD is putting information into both fictional and non-fictional contexts, in books and music and film (both documentary and feature film, I
