Alien Dawn: An Investigation into the Contact Experience by Colin Wilson
Alice Dawn tells the extraordinary story of bestselling author Colin Wilson's personal quest for a solution to the UFO mystery. In the spring of 1995, at a conference on the paranormal, he met psychiatrist John Mack, and learned that Mack was working with people who believed they had been abducted by 'aliens' - usually little grey creatures with huge eyes. Mack's conclusions made Wilson aware that the UFO phenomenon had changed radically since the 1980s, and that the only way to understand these new and bizarre complications was to go back to the beginning and start all over again. Wilson begins with an account of his acquaintance with Uri Geller and Andrija Puharich, who were convinced they had been selected by aliens to deliver a momentous message to the inhabitants of earth. He went on to study cases documented by friends like Jacques Vallee, John Keel, Ted Holiday and Linda Moulton Howe, who had concluded that the 'aliens' are not visitors from other planets, but begins with supernormal powers, who might originate in other dimensions of space - or even time. Their purpose may be connected with the transformation of human consciousness. Ground-breaking and compelling, Alien Dawn describes Wilson's own attempt to piece together a vast, complex jigsaw puzzle, whose components include poltergeists, lake monsters, ancient folklore, time slips, out-of-body experiences, mystical awareness and psychic travel toother worlds, as well as allegations of worldwide government cover-ups. It is the most comprehensive bird's eye view of the subject ever undertaken, and the conclusions Wilson draws are of overwhelming significance to us all.
