One of the most original books ever written on UFOs, The Messengers will make any thoughtful person ask fundamental questions about the nature of reality itself. More than any work in recent memory, it successfully ties the UFO phenomenon not simply to possible extraterrestrial intelligences, but to synchronicities, ancient archetypes, dreams, shamanistic experiences, magic, personal transformation, and death.
Clelland has gathered together compelling and persuasive accounts from hundreds of people who have had UFO sightings and apparent abduction experiences in conjunction with absolutely bizarre experiences with owls, creatures which have held a place of reverence and mystique throughout history. The accounts of these people – including those of Mike himself – suggest undeniable synchronicities at work. That is, coincidences that are highly meaningful to the persons involved. So meaningful in some cases that they seem staged for that person, and usually in a manner that only that person could decipher.
These accounts pose a serious challenge to the standard scientific materialist view of reality, one controlled by a comprehensible chain of cause and effect, in which matter is all that matters, and in which there are no unseen intelligences at work. As one goes through account after account of these meticulously documented experiences, our conventional view of reality appears ever more incomplete.
