CRYPTOTERRESTRIALS PDF

Bibliography Other books by Mac Tonnies. He is thought-pivotingly original. In the introductory story, "Reflections of a Specimen," Tonnies wow-ed me with a new take on clique leaders. The other stories in this book are just as juicy.

Most of the books spoke of a mindset that challenges my love of the odd, steeped in strange science and spurious proof that if challenged would result in months of unsettling e-mails sent to me from people whose sense reality would make it hard to respond, yet their earnestness would demand a response. Discussing aliens has become not unlike discussing religion for me — a tiresome argument that no one can win. You know how it is. But this book was a reasonable breath of fresh air where odd theories of aliens meddling with humans beings go.

His ideas on transhumanism are engrossing. In a way, this book is a perfect example of the sorts of ideas that made me a fan of the odd. When I was a kid, books on Forteana were not so insistent. They posited what happened fish falling from the sky , posited a few potential answers waterspouts drawing water and fish from streams, or an angry god , and left the reader to wonder and maybe discuss the topic. Now the book on fish falling from the sky has spurious science to prove a particular point of view, all other points are dismissed, and the discussion becomes entrenched and adversarial.

Those who see little green men or little gray men are not seeing creatures from other planets but instead are seeing creatures that have lived among us on Earth. Hidden creatures that may or may not be our genetic brethren, but that have nevertheless been with us for millennia. This is an interesting idea and Tonnies goes about discussing it using a calm erudition that was thrilling and appalling in a way because he is gone and there will be no more from him.

But I think the best way to show you this book is to give you snippets that resonated with me, examples of an excellent mind and an excellent book.

The book does not state, in that irritating manner that makes me despair of most books on this topic, that he had found the real solution, etc. Driven by a puzzling mixture of hubris and existential desperation, they seek to perpetuate themselves by infusing their gene-pool with human DNA.

While existing at the very margins of ordinary human perception, they have succeeded in realms practically unexplored by known terrestrial science, reinventing themselves at will and helping to orchestrate a misinformation campaign of awe-inspiring scope.

For one, they pass themselves off as aliens because they know alien interaction claims are dismissed. By utilizing our innate fascination with interplanetary visitors, the cryptoterrestrials have ensured that any accidental sightings of their craft will be ascribed to the ETH [extraterrestrial hypothesis]. And if by some chance the sighting is undeniable, its cultural connotations will almost certainly relegate it to our collective fortean attic.

And even as I am certainly not a True Believer in aliens, I can sort of see the logic in this but only in so far as we are encouraging discussion and not an advocacy. The antagonist in me says that of course it would be relegated to the unimportant or ignored because most UFO sightings are pants but Tonnies had a point. Several, in fact. The spectacle of the ships makes the mundane seem fantastic and that which is fantastic is dismissed. Sufficiently advanced ETs may while away the millennia in a hedonistic stupor, brains or their equivalent melded to pleasure-generating devices.

Just speculating that the aliens are in their version of some Orgasmatron and have no desire to answer our call or call out to us is fun to think about.

But then again, one can wonder if SETI really wants us to know if they have had contact with aliens: In paranoid moments—and there can never be enough of them—I have to wonder if SETI has any real plans to disseminate the discovery of an ET message.

While many—if not most—well-known abduction narratives are indeed fallible, disquieting findings from emerging or suppressed disciplines promise to reframe the debate. I think this is important, the notion that things that have yet to be credibly defined as a unified phenomenon cannot really be debunked as a whole. And if it matters, Tonnies tends to believe as I do that many people who report alien interaction may well have been suffering from sleep issues, hypnogogia, and other organic brain altering situations.

Not all, but some. He also addresses the common forms these interactions take, from the infamous probes to the wide belief that aliens are using us for DNA, involving all kinds of sexual interaction and hybrid babies.

History shows that relatively advanced sea-faring cultures topple less developed cultures, in part by collapsing defining assumptions and rendering cultural self-hood obsolete. So the pageant in our skies might be an ongoing indoctrination, an attempt to become more substantial in our universe, at least so that a more meaningful dialogue can be reached at some indeterminate point in the future.

And this next part was just awesome. Strieber has argued that official denial of the phenomenon is designed to thwart a potential invasion of non-human intelligence, in which case it seems an enduring stalemate has been reached with occasional power-plays made by both the UFOs and earthly officialdom.

You need to be really smart or really stoned to groove on the above. Believe really hard and the aliens can finally show themselves. The only really new thing I picked up from this book was the idea that abduction experiences can be the result of excessive exposure to electromagnetic waves.

Maybe some UFOs are a way our minds have developed to make sense of the onslaught of radio and microwave radiation that permeates modern culture.

Radio inundation might be ripping holes in the collective unconscious, leaving conspicuous voids to be filled. Of course anyone who has watched one of those ghost hunter shows knows that electromagnetic waves can cause paranormal-like activity, but I had never heard of the idea that abduction tales can be explained via fugue states brought on by allergic responses to electromagnetic waves.

Even the silliest idea in this book is no more than an invitation to think. As you look at this discussion, you may notice that I paid very little attention to the idea of cryptoterrestrialism.

In fact, it makes up only a small part of the book, as Tonnies explored the way we interact and interpret the idea of aliens of all kinds. I may be wrong as my sole knowledge of Tonnies comes from this book and parts of his blog, but I get the impression that the cryptoterrestrials were not the real purpose of this book.

The purpose of this book was to lay forth a new interpretation of what we see in the skies and what we see in our nightmares, ideas posited so that we continue the discussion of what is out there and what could be happening. This book, full of strange ideas that if asserted as truth I would snert at, is a collection of interesting ideas and an exhortation to join the conversation. This book does not violate science or history to make a spurious assertion.

It does not force the reader to take sides. It just asks us not to close our minds while thinking of the supernatural, and it does so with eloquence, humor and intelligence.

It is a fine book and a slightly melancholy read knowing it was the last book Tonnies wrote. Posted on.

The cryptoterrestrial hypothesis What is the so-called alien civilisation behind the UFO phenomenon? Assuming that there is a civilisation which is technically more advanced than we are, behind what is called unidentified flying objects. My theory is that this society is residing here on earth and managed to hide from us for quite some time. The reason why I suggest this, is to give another approach to the UFO phenomenon, which is more likely than interstellar space travel. In this article I want to go through the different possibilities of what this species might be. One possibility is that there is a species that developed intelligent life way before we did it.
