Valle Compares Religious Experience with Close Encounters
in honor of Adam Gorightly
Jacques Vallee's book Dimensions, part of his Contact Trilogy, explores the 'human' aspect of the ufo phenomenon. This includes everything from sociology through psychology to spirituality and religion. In Chapter Seven: "The Spiritual Component: A Morphology of Miracles" Vallee discusses the events at Fatima and Lourdes as well as Joseph Smith's early visions in comparison to the events associated with modern day contact with 'flying saucers' and their occupants.
Vallee concludes Chapter Seven with this chart, by perusing it you can get a fair idea of his argument.
