I recently began reading a copy of Trevor James Constable's "The Cosmic Pulse of Life", and I have to say it is an absolutely brilliant, original and thought provoking UFO book. UFOs, Etherians, Orgone, cloud busting, vision ray, and most interesting of all, the development and use of occult energy sensibilities fill every chapter of the book. Not only does Constable discuss the various ideas, but he also discusses exercises with photographic film and mind exercises that will provide the reader the ability to see the "other side of reality's veil". Whether I am able to burst a cloud or film an etherian in the short term future remains to be seen, but it is a very fascinating book nonetheless, and I look forward to writing about some of Constable's ideas in the future.
In the meantime, I've begun digging into some of Constable's literature recommendations. He's recommended the work of George Van Tassel, occultism, and of course Meade Layne. He has also recommended articles of the magazine (at least in the 50's, 60's and 70's) from The Flying Saucer Review. Immediately, I went to Amazon and ordered a used copy of the book "Encounter Cases from Flying Saucer Review" and plan to start it tonight. From the intro by editor at that time Charles Bowden, the book should not disappoint.
From the table of contents, high strangeness should abound in the paperback's pages. Cases/chapters include :
- The Vilvadore Humanoid
- The Little Electric Man
- and last but not least "Berserk : Encounter with a UFO Creature"
My understanding is that The Flying Saucer Review was considered THE top notch research ufological periodical during the height of the Cold War. I have a sense that the cases will lead one to question our conventional "go to" theory regarding all "occupant" encounters as ETH in nature. I will follow up with some of my thoughts on the chapters discussed in the book in the coming days. Stay tuned!
