For those of you on this thread that haven't been regular readers, Dan's new post is a review of sorts of Nick Redfern's new book, 'Final Events':
I haven't read it yet, I was thinking about it but I'll definitely be ordering it now.
Apart from Dan's grasp and interpretation of Guenon, I found the following paragraph striking:
A common dream that many abductees often have is that of witnessing a literal alien invasion. I have had this dream countless times in many variations. The most common of which is walking through a field and approaching a bridge. While in this field, the backdrop of my dream is seeing alien ships flying everywhere. This dream always leaves me with a sense of dread and wonder at the same time. Also there is a sense that I am witnessing a future event, mainly the world going crazy while this independence day scenario plays out. I get the strong sense that "they" would much rather I go with the sense of wonder than the dread that is also present. Whatever variation this dream comes in, I am always aware that I am on my way to meet certain people at certain places because I have a job to do. The "event" is simply my activation, which finally allows me to access the information that has been hidden from my conscious mind.
Striking because I've had this dream at least once that I remember, except for being aware having a job to do. Now, I'm one of those philosophical Forteans, you know, one that's never had a remotely classical Fortean experience but finds the 'logic' irrefutable. So I'm almost sure that I'm not an experiencer or abductee but that dream was something else ...
