The UFO Experience Reconsidered: Science and Speculation
Paperback, 166 Pages
Prints in 3-5 business days
This book was inspired by, and is loosely based on, "The UFO Experience: A Scientific Inquiry" (1972) by the late Dr. J Allen Hynek. Dr. Hynek’s book is generally considered to be the most influential book ever written about UFOs, but much has happened since 1972. This new book not only brings us up-to-date, but extrapolates on current science whenever possible. Perspectives are offered in three basic categories: natural causes, domestic technology, and alien technology. But perhaps more importantly a new way of looking at the phenomena is proposed that has been largely overlooked by other authors, and which finds itself at home in any of these three possibilities. The reader will not find discussion of conspiracy theories, accounts of abductions, or metaphysical and supernatural hypotheses. However, one will find speculations about possible alien visitations, what alien technology might be capable of, or what the distant future might hold.

Apr 24, 2009"Excellent Book On Possible UFO Origins" How many of us have considered the possibilities of an alien presence among us on planet earth? The answer seems to be many have. People all over the world have reported strange objects day and night in the skies above. These objects seem to have extraordinary maneuverability qualities that defy all logic and they are reported to have bright or eerie lights being emitted as they are observed as well. These objects are reported to be able to vanish instantaneously and then to reappear just as fast. What are these objects that so many see? Are they hallucinations, weather anomalies, mistaken observations of terrestrial aircraft, or are they actual physical craft from another world? There seems to be many explanations to the questions above and the answers you get depends on the persons you ask and their individual beliefs or partiality on the facts of UFOs existing or not. Its time to take a look at the UFO dilemma from a neutral... More > standpoint, something that hasn’t been done regularly. This position is best because the initial judgment or questions raised are not backed by partiality either for the extraterrestrial hypothesis or against it. Many times people use their research to strengthen their personal biases regardless of the true nature of their findings on a given subject. In this book “The UFO Experience Reconsidered: Science and Speculation”, the author Robert L. Mason gives us a complete overview of the phenomenon of UFOs and their possible origins strictly from neutral ground. He uses hard facts and possibilities that may in fact be the source of these strange anomalies. Some of the issues raised by his writing brings to light new ways or techniques that need to be analyzed thoroughly regarding the reports of such phenomenon. The material in this book brings to light a fascinating approach in which to begin searching for the true nature and origins of the UFO phenomenon. Mr. Mason describes in detail where all the possibilities of such reported incidents may very well lie. He thoroughly discusses the “what ifs” at the very heart of this ongoing mystery. The book clearly shows how the craft that are observed could be actual physical nuts and bolts space craft from another world, as well as the possibility of them being mere mirages. If in fact these observations are related to an extraterrestrial source, the book explores other possibilities that could be used by an alien race of people who’s technology could be so far in advance to ours that it would allow them to visit our planet with out them ever leaving theirs! This is a well written account of one mans research into the vast possibilities that may harbor the truth behind the true nature of UFOs and their true origins. In that this book is clearly written from neutral ground on the UFO subject, it leaves out the possibility that the author is writing on his own personal and biased beliefs. This is a welcomed and well-written book on the possible origins related to Unidentified Flying Objects. -David P. Kuhlman, UFO Researcher / UFO Book Reviews www.ufoforhumanrights.com< Less
Dec 31, 1969"The UFO Experience Reconsidered" Review by David Darling, Ph.D., science writer and astronomer The UFO Experience Reconsidered, by Robert Mason, is a sober and refreshing reassessment of a phenomenon that has intrigued the public for more than half a century. The book takes as its inspiration and rolemodel, J. Allen Hynek's classic 1972 work on the subject, and reexamines the UFO conundrum in a modern scientific setting. That people witness unexplained luminous events in the sky and on the ground, and occasionally much more dramatic happenings, is not seriously in doubt. Some of these stories may be accounted for by poorly understood natural phenomena, such as ball lightning or "earthquake lights," which are interesting enough in themselves. Yet there remains a stubborn residue of perplexing and hard-to-dismiss cases which challenges science with the possibility that something is going on of more dramatic origin, possibly extraterrestrial, possibly artificial,... More > and (just) possibly extraterrestrial and artificial. Robert Mason brings to the table a polymath's analysis of a topic that continues to intrigue us all.< Less
