Book Review: The Keepers: An Alien Message for the Human Race

Keepers

Title: The Keepers: An Alien Message for the Human Race
Author: Jim Sparks
ASIN: B00M4XE0DO

Review:

Keep your eyes and mind open

I had a hard time deciding if I should give this book 3 stars or four. The reason is that there are lots of books, now, describing alien abductions. I read them to see if anything is jarred in my memory. Jim Sparks, the author, describes the surreal experience and trying to cope with them. If you put the shoe on the other foot and you are an alien, how would you scientifically test us? We do it to lab animals all the time. If you are a rat, would you understand the purpose of a labyrinth type experiment? The author, towards the end of this book, remembers some possible military involvement. The CIA over the years has funded many “scientific”studies on the populace, only for them to come to light decades later.If you believe we are being keep,read the book.

Book Review: The Messengers: Owls, Synchronicity and the UFO Abductee

Title: The Messengers: Owls, Synchronicity and the UFO Abductee
Author: Mike Clelland, Richard Dolan (Foreword)
ASIN: B018WWGTIY

Review:

Birds of a feather

This book deals with a phenomenon that occurs in some alien abduction cases. Abductees sometimes view animals before the abduction process occurs. Owls are one of the predominant ones. The author, Mike Clelland, discusses various cases with an owl involved. He notes that sometimes real owls as well as screened images of larger-than-life owls are remembered. He postulates that real owls may be physically attracted to the abductee. I, myself, have problems with dolphins when I fish and have a much larger percent of oddities that occur with them.I wish that the book would’ve pursued possible scientific reason/differences between owls interactions with normal people and abductees. I can understand the author’s possible problems finding any scientist looking into this. The book bounces around with sacred owl sites in England to owls in pop culture. The drawback of the book is that the subject matter occurs but the answer to why is beyond us. The author could’ve just reported owl occurrences in a row, but it would have probably just bored us. He tries to interweave owl related things. To me the weakness of the book is having to do that. But there probably wasn’t another way to do it. If you have a high occurrence of unusual animal interactions in your life, read the book.

Book Review: Insiders Reveal Secret Space Programs & Extraterrestrial Alliances

Insiders Reveal

Title: Insiders Reveal Secret Space Programs & Extraterrestrial Alliances
Author: Michael Salla
ASIN: B015B6XAUY

Review:

Rumors of serious problems with encounters with a superior military force flourished.

This is a unique book. Years ago I would not have  thought about reading a book on this subject. Multiple space programs being kept hidden from us would seem to be too far out there.The problem is events that have happened in the past, now make this more plausible. Adm. Byrd led a military expedition to Antarctica right after the war. It ended early, rumors of serious problems with encounters with a superior military force flourished. Nothing seemed to occur regarding this skirmish afterwards. The other shoe never fell. We have Reagan, our president, spending vast amounts on Star Wars projects. What developed from large amounts of funding we never saw. Having our president conjectured the possibility of alien conflicts, also had me wondering. More recently British hacker Gary McKinnon talks of “non-terrestrial officers”from Pentagon and NASA files that he hacked. We also have tremendous advances in science that make the concept of almost anything possible. There’s always been a close tie between scientific advancement and funding by the military. Advancements are closely guarded by the military, and when they are brought to light, it means they have been surpassed. Parts of the book are tough to swallow, but a substantial amount of it answers questions that have perplexed me

Book Review: Bloodline of the Gods

Bloodline

Title: Bloodline of the Gods
Author: Nick Redfern
ASIN: B0133F4AKO

Review:

What color is alien blood?

This book is only okay because I believe it is a difficult subject to write about. Even the Bible talks about sky beings/Angels having sex with humans, producing offsprings. Bloodline of the gods explores this and the unusual Rh negative blood type. If you haven’t thought along the lines of bluebloods existing, you will find this book useful. Redfern does an acceptable job trying to give an overview.

Book Review: Walking Among Us: The Alien Plan to Control Humanity

Walking Among Us

Title: Walking Among Us: The Alien Plan to Control Humanity
Author: David M. Jacobs
ASIN: B012BZ1GXG

Review:

earth,the true melting pot

David Jacobs admits that his book puts him at risk for being considered a true “crackpot”. I admire him and other people who believe that what they see as truth is more important than going along with everyone else. His research has led him to believe that aliens have created hybrids and are trying to meld them into society. I believe he is correct but his book reassures me more than upsets me. Let me clarify this a little bit. If a far superior race wanted to have a physical confrontation, I think they would win. If they had been involved with our creation, then they may take a different route trying to get us to evolve. An alien human hybrid would be an intelligent mid-ground. Having a hybrid trying to understand us and interact with us may not be too easy to do This makes this book interesting to read even if you don’t believe in the hybrid theory. The problems occur by differences in methods of learning. Difficulties for normal aliens immigrating to our country are even more so for one’s that were not raised on earth. Suspend your disbelief, and read this book.

Book Review: The Third Way: The Nazi International, European Union, and Corporate Fascism

The Third Way
Title: The Third Way: The Nazi International, European Union, and Corporate Fascism
Author: Joseph P. Farrell
ASIN: B0131FWPN0

Review:

Does winning the war defeat a nation’s views and ideology?

This book is not for everyone. You will like this book, if you wonder about history that you lived through and said something didn’t seem right. The North won the Civil War and yet we’re still today fighting over flying the Confederate flag. In the same light, the allies defeated the Nazis. This book examines some of the developments in Germany, Europe and other parts of the world that may have been impacted by Nazi ideology. The book ranges from the Madrid circular, nuclear proliferation, lost Nazi plunder to the Hadron collider. The third way is a book that suggests possibilities that developed from the “defeated”Nazi legacy. You Should read the book, see what you feel interests you and then try to read other books on the subject to verify the author’s proposed view..

Book Review: Brain States

Brain States

Title: Brain States
Author: Tom Kenyon MA
ASIN: B005COO168

Review:

The mind is a terrible thing to waste, so don’t, read instead..

This book gives an overview of the brain and techniques that can be used to enhance it. I have always liked neurolinguistic programming, NLP and this book has a chapter describing it. People are geared towards visual – seeing, auditory – hearing, kinesthetic – physical sensation, olfactory – smell and gustatory – taste. We usually communicate, along one of those lines. I see where you’re coming from. I hear you. It touches my heart. This line of question smell. Those questions leave a bad taste in my mouth. We express ourselves in those kinds of ways. Other techniques center on increasing performance, self-healing, lucid dreaming and others.I like this book for people who haven’t spent a great deal of time reading on the subject. If you read a lot about the brain, techniques and various states of it ;you probably will just find the book to be OK.

Book Review: Telekinesis (Psychic Awakening series Book 2)

Telekinesis

Title: Telekinesis (Psychic Awakening series Book 2)
Author: Embrosewyn Tazkuvel
ASIN: B00SEWV546

Review:

A short book to wrap your mind around

This is a short book on the field of telekinesis It gives an example or two and five exercises to hone your skills. The book also discusses bending spoons, giving the tip that one should try to be disinterested. I have tried to bend a key before, succeeding to bend a duplicate key that was in my pocket. If the book was longer I would’ve probably liked it. It’s okay for what it is.

Book Review: The Music of Time

Music of Time

Title: The Music of Time
Author: Preston Nichols, Peter Moon
ASIN: B006G3Y5TM

Review:

Rock and Roll is timeless

This is really two books, not one. I enjoyed the first one about Preston Nichols entering into the music business. He talked about his electronics background and the musical groups he interacted with. The second is about a UFO investigator John Ford and a possible assassination by toothpaste. I think that the first part of the book should have been the beginning of the Montauk Project; Experiments in Time. Knowing more about Preston Nichols in the acoustic field would’ve been beneficial. Years later we see our government with acoustic and microwave weapons.The second part is a truly unique story of a UFO investigator and political intrigue surrounding Montauk. This I think should have been a totally separate book. Both parts of the book are interesting but for different reasons.

Book Review: UFOs Exopolitics and the New World Disorder

ufos exopolitics

Title: UFOs Exopolitics and the New World Disorder
Author: Ed Komarek
ASIN: B008KPDMSY

Review:

Politics breed strange bedfellows.

This book is useful if you believe that multiple species of aliens have and are interacting with us now. I wasn’t sure what the title of the book meant. The author defines Exopolitics as the politics of universe. He states Exopolitics is about extraterrestrial races and civilizations, and how these infinite spacefaring cultures interact among themselves and with us. Again the difficulty is that knowledge of this type would be highly guarded by any country. This leaves us with only bits and pieces of information that makes its way to the public. The scientific progress that we’ve been allowed to see, such as mouse growing a human ear, an atom being teleported, new super materials, were all considered science fiction in the past. Maybe we were smart enough to do it on our own or maybe we had help.  If you believe the latter, you’ll enjoy this book.
