Review:

the sound of one hand clapping

This book isn’t for everyone. If you dealt with anyone who has channeled entities in your presence or are interested in Zen koans, you may like this book. Let me try to explain. I have been with someone who channeled Michael the Archangel .You’d think this was nice and interesting, it really wasn’t. I could never get direct answers to my questions. Whitley Strieber’s book is about a meeting he had with a man who visit him. To him it was a life-changing conversation. He asked the man why he was there and the answer was :your chain to the ground. Some of the answers are less cryptic,some are more.  You may find some of the answers to life or you may feel you’ve just wasted your time.  Some people like poetry, some don’t.

Book Review: Children Of The Greys

children
Title: Children Of The Greys
Author: Bret Oldham
ISBN: 0989103137

Review:

It’s your sperm being stolen or was it just a dream?

This book is not for everyone. It is for people who believe in alien abductions and the possibility of alien human hybrids. The odds are if you believe in alien abductions, you’ve probably had strange things happen to you or wake up with scars in the morning after a unusual night’s sleep. I know a lady, whose had abduction experiences all her life. She had a dream that she was breast-feeding a hybrid. When she awoke in the morning, she was still lactating. She had no children of breast-feeding age. I don’t believe a vivid dream could’ve done that. The Children of the Grays has enough specific facts in it, if you’re reading the book to jar a hidden memory about abductions, that may have happened to you. The book ends with a few chapters written by various UFO writers trying to give various views on why aliens would want a hybrid agenda.  If you believe, the book is okay. If you’re a nonbeliever it’s probably not for you.

Book Review: The Truth Behind the Moon Landings, Censored Photos , and The Face on Mars

Nasa Conspiracies
Title: The Truth Behind the Moon Landings, Censored Photos , and The Face on Mars
Author: Nick Redfern
ASIN: B004E0Z3RM

Review:

When you catch your neighbor stealing your newspaper three times,and your newspaper is missing.Who would you think took it?

I liked the second half of the book more than the beginning. I find it perplexing when authors give you good examples of inconsistencies and then draw wrong conclusions from it. On the first moon landing the astronauts used Hasselblad cameras, shot from the waist, and had no viewfinders. Take your digital camera, for fun, shoot some pictures holding the camera at waist level. See if you can get pictures that were framed like the beautiful still shots from the moon. The author discusses the pressures NASA had to beat the Russians to the moon.  He then examines difficulties with the moon landing and defends NASA. The rest of the book shows examples that make you wonder about NASA. The back part of the book, deals with the more recent hacking of NASA’s computers.  Nick Redfern does a good job at making you question inconsistencies involving NASA I, like Redfern, believe we went to the moon. The question then is ,when was the first time?.

Book Review: Penetration – the Question of Extraterrestrial and Human Telepathy

Penetration
Title: Penetration – the Question of Extraterrestrial and Human Telepathy
Author: Ingo Swann
ASIN: B00OQT960G

Review:

You don’t have to be a mindreader to like the book

If you’ve read about remote viewing, the name Ingo Swann, will probably come to light. He is one of the founding fathers of remote viewing. If you don’t believe in remote viewing, you would have to wonder why the Russians and the Americans delved into the field for many years. Millions of dollars were spent. For you doubters, I think it would be hard to hoodwink both of these governments for such a long period of time. This book is divided into three parts, ultrasecret goings-on, moon activities, and earth side telepathy versus space side telepathy. The first chapter, deals with the initial establishment of a research project at Stanford research Institute funded by the central intelligence agency. It explains, how upon trying to defeat the boredom of practicing normal targets, they tried to view off the earth. Later in 1975 Ingo Swann reveals that he’s approached by a “spook”and hired to remote view the moon. As you can guess, he doesn’t see Swiss cheese. The second chapter deals with the moon, more specifically scientific problems with the moon that ours place exploration has shown. The last chapter is sort of a philosophical discussion of how telepathy works. I found Penetration to be a very interesting book. I believe that the story he tells is true and that he was hired by the government to a remote view the moon. The oddities that our scientific exploration of the moon found tend to reinforce what he states in the book. Even if you’re not a true believer, and you keep a slightly open mind, you will find the book thought-provoking.
