...watch his interview on Oprah with some of his patients...
Peter, John Mack's patient, seems to be a well-balanced fellow, with no detectable signs of neurosis or psychosis, and as I trust John Mack's
integrity, I will accept that Peter fully believes his experience, and that he adds no embellishment of any kind. I think I read Mack's book
'Abduction' back in the 90s, but I do not have a copy now. I'll see if I can get it on Kindle?
Over the last year or so I have been feeling a slight paradigm shift occurring in my thinking; I am currently unemployed, and so perhaps that is part
of the reason for it, having more time to spend and dwell on subjects that interest me? Ufology is an interest of mine ever since the mid seventies
when I had an experience of a UFO sighting, you can read about here...
...I also have held a deep interest in the possibility of post-mortem consciousness (i.e., survival after death), but after decades of study I came to
the conclusion that 'survival' was not possible due to the absence of an energy mechanism for memory to remain cohesive and consciously active...what
would be the power source?
John Mack talks of these entities as being inter-dimensional beings, and there is considerable evidence from researchers like Mack, and from the
abductees themselves, that the non-earthly entities can manipulate memory, even wipe bits of it clean or even add surreal mnemonic images and sounds
that the abductee accepts as being their own memories. This makes for a very interesting hypothetical discussion.
For subjects like these I have always approached them from an energy mechanism point of view in hope of providing plausible hypotheses for the
subject's validity. The report from the abductee regarding their intuitive distress they perceive is understandable, a false memory implanted will
give false emotional resonance, and should feel out of place in the mind of the abductee. If we allow for this form of manipulation by these entities,
we can ask about the mechanism, because it implies certain skills and technology being used, but it also hints at the very nature of memory itself and
how it may be stored.
What may also come across as intriguing is the possibility that memory can be downloaded or transferred to some other body that provides power source
for memory to remain cohesive and active? If this possibility is plausible, then it begs the question, just how plausible is it for there to be a
natural mechanism for memory to survive the destruction of the physical body? If memory does survive and remains cohesive and active after death, it
would mean the most important aspect of our nature, that of 'person-hood' (others may call it the soul) would indeed survive physical death.
Validation of one phenomenon can be made when we look at other phenomena that provide interconnecting energy mechanisms. Just some thoughts.
Other posters in other threads have been asking the question are we actually computer simulations? It seems a very far-fetched concept, but I feel
that if we were to finally come to know of the origin of our being, I would not be surprised if we were not horrified by it?
Here is the video 'Touched' by Laurel Chiten. Her film follows abductees and how they assimilate their experiences into the normal everyday reality of
normalcy. John Mack is included in the film, as it was he whom approached Chiten to make the film. Initially she refused to make the film, but was
invited to an abductee meeting, and from that meeting decided to make the film.
