Champ Akashique

dissabte, 5/01/2019

Dans son livre “Science et Champ Akashique”, Erwin Laszlo propose une nouvelle vision intégrative grâce aux derniers développements de la science : le Champ Akashique, concept emprunté à la tradition spirituelle d’origine hindoue et revisité avec l’esprit intégratif de notre époque.

Les mystiques et les sages savent depuis longtemps qu’il existe un champ cosmique reliant tout à tout au plus profond de la réalité, un champ qui conserve et transmet l’information. Ce champ est connu sous le nom de ” champ akashique “. De récentes découvertes en physique quantique indiquent que celui-ci est réel et qu’il a son équivalent dans le champ du point zéro qui sous-tend l’espace comme tel. Ce champ consiste en une mer subtile d’énergies fluctuantes à partir desquelles tout émerge : atomes, galaxies, étoiles, planètes, êtres vivants, et même la conscience. Ce champ du point zéro, ou champ A, est la mémoire constante et éternelle de l’univers. Il détient les données de tout ce qui s’est jamais produit sur la Terre et dans le cosmos, et met celles-ci en corrélation avec tout ce qui doit arriver. Dans ce livre, le philosophe et scientifique Ervin Laszlo nous transmet l’essence de ce champ d’information dans un langage clair et accessible à tous. Grâce au monde de la science, il vient confirmer nos plus profondes intuitions en ce qui a trait à la grande harmonie unifiée de l’univers, et ce, par la théorie du tout. Comme le philosophe William James le dit, ” nous sommes telles des îles dans la mer dissociées à la surface, mais reliées par le fond “,

The Intelligence of the Cosmos, Ervin Laszlo

divendres, 4/01/2019

For the outdated mainstream paradigm the world is a giant mechanism functioning in accordance with known and knowable laws and regularities. The new paradigm emerging in science offers a different concept: The world is an interconnected, coherent whole, and it is informed by a cosmic intelligence. This is not a finite, mechanistic-material world. It is a consciousness-infused whole-system world. We are conscious beings who emerge and co-evolve as complex, cosmic-intelligence in-formed vibrations in the Akashic Field of the universe.

Ervin Laszlo and his collaborators from the forefront of science, cosmology, and spirituality show how the re-discovery of who we are and why we are here integrates seamlessly with the wisdom traditions as well as with the new emerging worldview in the sciences, revealing a way forward for humanity on this planet. They explain how we have reached a point of critical incoherence and tell us that to save ourselves, our environment, and society, we need a critical mass of people to consciously evolve a new thinking. Offering a guidepost to orient this evolution, Laszlo examines the nature of consciousness in the universe, showing how our bodies and minds act as transmitters of consciousness from the intelligence of the cosmos and how understanding science’s new concept of the world enables us to re-discover our identity and our purpose in our world.

About the book ” The Intelligence of the Cosmos“:

• A guide to understanding our identity and purpose in the world

• Outlines the new understanding of matter and mind coming to light at the cutting edge of physics and consciousness research

• Explains how we can evolve consciously, become connected with each other, and flourish on this planet

• Includes contributions from Maria Sagi, Kingsley L. Dennis, Emanuel Kuntzelman, Dawna Jones, Shamik Desai, Garry Jacobs, and John R. Audette.

Major Donald Keyhoe interview, 2/3

dissabte, 15/12/2018

In 1952, there was an intelligence analysis of the maneuvers of these things, as seen by radar, triangulation, radar photographs. And in ’53, the Central Intelligence Agency and the Air Force had a special panel of scientists meet at the Pentagon, to tell them what to do. And after they got through, this group said, “You don’t have proof that these things exist, not scientific proof, but you have a very strong circumstantial case.

We suggest you quadruple investigations, set up special observation posts and in the meantime release everything you got the American people.” Now, you’ve got four documents there; they’ve been sitting on all this time. Now, that… and they have been spending a lot of money investigating flying saucers. If they don’t exist, why the money… why did the intelligence team rush out every time there’s a sighting?

WALLACE: Now then, you have mentioned four documents that you claim exist. We’ve heard, in the past, that you have claimed that these documents existed. We’ve seen your literature in which you talk about the existence of those documents. So, we spoke with the Air Technical Intelligence Center at the Pentagon earlier with this week, and this is what we’re told officially by them, “Three of the four documents Major Keyhoe refers to, simply do not exist.

The fourth document does exist, you can have a copy of it, Mr. Wallace, and you can see that it doesn’t say what Major Keyhoe claims it says.” We have a copy of it and I quote to you from the copy. The Air Force document says just this, “The panel recommends that the national security agencies take immediate steps to strip the UFOs of the special status they have been given and the aura of mystery they have unfortunately acquired.

We suggest an integrated program designed to reassure the public of the total lack of evidence of inimical forces behind the phenomena.” And again, as I point out, secretary Horner says it’s simply ain’t so. Now, why? The point really at issue here, it would seem, Major Keyhoe, is this: Why do you believe that the Air Force says that nothing is going on? Why do you believe that the…? It’s a fairly serious charge that you make.

KEYHOE: I know it is.

WALLACE: You make the charge that the United States government is withholding from the people of the United States certain very important information. Why? What would their motive be for withholding that kind of information from us?

KEYHOE: Well, I’ll answer that, but I’d also like to show you some proofs that they are withholding it. The reason was given to me when they were working with me back in ’52 and ’53; it was first that they were afraid of hysteria. Remember the Orson Welles show-back… way years back, when he scared people in the hills with the…

WALLACE: I do.

KEYHOE: …idea of invading Martians. Then, they were also afraid that it would upset organized religion, that was a smaller factor, but there was some fear of it. Later, they were afraid that these accidents when the interceptors had chased these things and had been lost or had crashed, might be considered a proof of hostility. Now, I would never have put my name on anything if it were a matter of a personal opinion.

I’ve talked to, and read the reports of, hundreds of pilots and radar men, guided missile trackers, who’ve seen these things. And some of them are very more important names. The Air Force says that they’ve (…) this down to 1.9 percent, but you noticed the word current in there, they mean we are currently explaining.

Now, I have in my possession a copy of the special report fourteen, which is their Bible on this. In the back, it has a table showing that of thirty-two hundred and one cases they examined, nineteen and a half percent were unsolved. And they admit they still are unsolved. You add up what they’ve had since then; it makes over twelve percent of the reports and those are mostly from the best possible sources.

WALLACE: Well now, wait just a second; I’ll use your figures. The Department of Defense released an official bulletin on November 5, 1957, saying that from June of ’55 to June of ’57, a two-year period, just a fraction over two percent of all investigated unidentified flying objects had to be listed as unknown. Two percent, so that’s your one point nine…

KEYHOE: What’s the period, again?

WALLACE: ’55 to ’57. The rest were determined to have been balloons, airplanes, hoaxes, and a category about 12 percent, called insufficient information, which means that the report was so flimsy that there was simply nothing to check on. I must confess that they have… they’ve certainly shown me no classified material, but they have opened their files quite willingly to us in our preparation for this program tonight, and they’ve given us very convincing evidence, Major Keyhoe, that it is largely… I shouldn’t say largely, I’ll say ninety-nine and forty-four, one-hundred percent, a hoax. Now, you mentioned…

KEYHOE: A hoax?

WALLACE: Well, let… when I say a hoax…

KEYHOE: Are you saying a lot of good pilots, hoax?

WALLACE: No, no, no, not hoax, just… I thank you for correcting me, not just a hoax, but, let’s say, misinformation or sightings of objects which seem to be one thing but are, in fact, another. I’m glad that you corrected me about hoax, because it is, by no means, that much a hoax. But, you mentioned that Dr. Donald Menzel, who was a professor of Astrophysics at Harvard before. Now, I think you will agree that he’s one of the world’s most distinguished astrophysicists. Is that not so?

KEYHOE: I think there are others who are equally capable, but, do not agree with him.

WALLACE: He is one of the world’s most distinguished astrophysicists; though, I think we can agree on that. In any case, he stresses, you see, that pilots are not experts of —, that they, as well, as others, can see flying saucers when it’s only, to quote him, “the wrapper of somebody’s lunch moving around on the air” end quote. But, again, let’s come back to the point… the most important point, Major Keyhoe, and that is, why, why will the Air Force…? Why will the United States government withhold information from United States citizens? For what reason?

KEYHOE: Because they’re treating us like children, the way they did it with the H-Bomb at first, and the way they’ve been doing with other things. Now, I’m not attacking the United States Air Force. I’m attacking a small group in there that has been persistently keeping this from the public, just as they’ve kept other things. For a long time you couldn’t even mention the idea that we could be hit by missiles from submarines from the gulf or from both coasts very easily.

I knew that years and years ago and tried to get it out, but at the time was discouraged about it. Now then, you mentioned this… that this denial of these documents. Now, I’d like to tell you something that happened on the Armstrong Circle Theatre. I had requested that those points be in the script and I was discouraged from it at, first by their writer. Then later, some of our board of governors insisted that we had those points included.

So I said, “Either, I don’t go on or we have those in there.” They said all right. So the script was completely rewritten. Now those were in the script as it was first rehearsed. But when the second rehearsal, came along and the Air Force saw the mimeograph sheet there with Air Force representatives, but according to Armstrong’s writer said, they would immediately deny it on the air, even though it meant denouncing their own former project chief.

Now, the source for this is Captain Edward Ruppelt, who was the head of Project Blue Book for two years. And at that time he was considered good enough that he briefed President Truman on these things. He was the top man, rank didn’t mean anything, it was the experience that counted. All right, he says these things existed; he put it in a book which was cleared by Security and Review, in the Air Force.

On December 5, 1955, that was cleared. It’s in his book;. He has never been hauled in a court-martial. Now, I have here, and if you’d allow your camera to come in on it; this is a sheet from the script of the Armstrong Theater, which was deleted. This was crossed off, and I was told that I couldn’t say it on the air. Now that was censorship by intimidation. This can be matched up with the other sheets from the Armstrong Circle script and any typewriter expert will show you that… They ordered to take it out.

WALLACE: I’m certain that people believe you; the only thing is that, the next morning, I do distinctly remember reading a report by you, Major Keyhoe, to the effect that no censorship, no pressure of any kind had been put upon you.

KEYHOE: I’m sorry, Mr. Wallace, that… I know that statement almost by heart. I said that CBS and the Armstrong people were not to blame for cutting me off the air when I tried to mention the fact that at Senate Committee was working on the secrecy angle. I never mentioned this that night to anyone because I had promised that I wouldn’t say anything about on the air that… to the Armstrong people. It was taken out and I will do this: I will ask the United States Air Force to have the Marine Corps put me on active duty for a court-martial if that is not the case.

More than half of the Germans

SCIENCE

Germans believe in aliens

It’s not just sci-fi nerds: According to a representative survey, a lot of Germans can put their skepticism aside when it comes to creatures from outer space. Even scientists believe there could be extraterrestrial life.

Are we alone in the universe? More than half of the Germans polled in a recent survey don’t think so. Market research institute YouGov asked 1,171 people whether they believed in extraterrestrials and 56 percent said yes.

More than 1,000 people asked is considered a representative number for Germany. YouGov researchers conducted the survey via an online questionnaire between September 18 and 22. Anna Schneider, senior consultant with the institute, said she was not surprised by the high number of believers.

“The reason for believing is a mix of hope and fear,” Schneider told DW. “It’s hard for humans to imagine that we are this special and singular in a universe whose end we don’t even know, but it’s also not easy to picture sharing the special status of intelligent life. So I expected an outcome of around fifty-fifty.”

Life finds a way

The idea that aliens or extraterrestrials could exist is not just purported by a layman’s majority; it’s also subject to serious scientific research.

“The formation of life in the entire cosmos, in every niche it can find, is probably a completely natural process,” Klaus Jäger, astronomer at the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy, told DW. He pointed to the fact that simple forms of life survive even in the most barren conditions, like at the bottom of the deep sea. Why not on far-away planets?

Discoveries made by space missions support the idea that somewhere, extraterrestrials exist, according to Jäger.

“Scientific facts are pretty clearly pointing toward the existence of life outside of Earth,” the astronomer and spokesman of the German Astronomical Society said. “Even in interstellar gas that floats around and among the stars in our milky way we’ve found organic material, which is the preliminary stage to life.”

Aliens among us?

Jäger does not believe, however, that aliens are already among us, saying that finding another life-form is a possible scenario of the future.

Martin Schädler, webmaster of the German website and online community www.alien.de disagrees. He became interested in extraterrestrials roughly 20 years ago when he read a book about alien abductions and does not only believe that aliens exist, but that they have been to Earth, too.

“The universe is gigantic and it has existed for such a long time – why should we be the only living things in it?” Schädler asked. “And how likely is it really that aliens are not here on Earth, too? I believe that the universe is so big and so old that it’s brimming with extraterrestrial life, that it’s full of it. That no one would have made their way to us so far is very unlikely to me.”

There’s a great fascination with aliens, like at this science fiction exhibition in Leipzig, Germany

The tech-expert, who works on email encryption as a day job, told DW he thought that the high number of people who believe in aliens was partially due to the presence of astronomy in daily life. With media reporting on space-related discoveries and astronomy documentaries airing on TV, people become more aware of the sheer size of our universe, Schädler says.

From there, he believes, it’s only a small step to wondering why we should be alone in it.

REDEFINIR la realitat

divendres, 30/03/2018

Per John Mack calia redefinir el propi concepte de realitat. “Les assumpcions seculars sobre la realitat dominants durant la meva formació universitària eren, de fet, una gran il·lusió, una superstició materialista que ha mantingut el pensament occidental encallat i empresonat durant els últims 300 anys. Com responen a aquests fenòmens els guardians del moribund paradigma tradicional? Molts bramulen que és pseudociència“, sentenciava.

 

 

Si admetem que les persones han viscut un succés real -alguna cosa que John Mack donava per fet, però la majoria dels seus col·legues no-, alguna cosa que entra en la nostra realitat tridimensional sense formar totalment part d’ella, sorgeixen preguntes com: Quin tipus de realitat és aquesta? D’on vénen aquests éssers? Quina és la seva relació amb el diví o el demoníac? Són entitats o formes d’energia que es manifesten en el nostre món, però procedeixen d’un altre univers o dimensió?”, escrivia  el 2002 en Oberlin Alumni Magazine.

Lifting “truth embargo”

 —

RUSSIAN President Vladimir Putin could be the man to make world history by announcing intelligent aliens exist and have visited Earth, a conspiracy theorist has claimed after spending a week in Moscow calling on the Kremlin to acknowledge extraterrestrials.

 —
The Paradigm Research Group (PRG) based in the US believes an unproven conspiracy theory that world powers are concealing a massive secret that intelligent aliens regularly visit Earth and work with governments under top-secret projects.Steve Bassett, PRG founder, is the only registered lobbyist in the US on the issue of so-called alien disclosure.However, he does not believe Donald Trump is the man to tell the world the truth and headed to Russia to try to push for Mr Putin to take the lead.US citizen, Mr Bassett, spent a week in Russia trying to convince Mr Putin of the importance of lifting an alleged “truth embargo” that he claims stops world leaders telling the public the truth about aliens.

Putin-Aliens

Mr Bassett believes the alleged embargo has been in place since at least 1947 when a flying saucer allegedly crash landed at Roswell, New Mexico.He was interviewed for a Russian documentary during his visit, and has now released unedited clips from the interview.Mr Bassett told REN TV: “I have specifically brought up my intrigue as to why Putin did not take this legacy in the 26 years since the end of the Cold War and make the announcement to be the disclosure president.”I sort of understand, but given that the nation and head of state that makes the first official confirmation of the ET presence, that nation will immediately move to the centre of the stage.
“If I had two minutes with Putin, my only question would be why do you not tell people about the ET presence. I believe Vladimir Putin is well aware of the ET presence.”While in Moscow, Mr Bassett also held meetings with a number of groups addressing alleged extraterrestrial phenomena in Russia. These groups included a number of former Soviet and Russian military and agency officials.Mr Bassett said: “There has always been a considerable, open engagement of extraterrestrial related phenomena within Russia and the Soviet Union by the public and the government.”

A PRG statement said: “In the full interview held at REN TV’s studio Bassett covered a broad range of topics including various considerations that might prompt Russian President Vladimir Putin to make the first formal acknowledgment by a head of state regarding an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race.

“In this regard the interview was unprecedented as it is the first time anyone has made this argument on Russian media inside or outside Russia.”PRG has repeatedly stated in American media that Vladimir Putin is the most likely head of state at this time to formally acknowledge an extraterrestrial presence and provide new evidence from Russian military sources to back up the announcement.

“Should that happen the geopolitical consequences for the United States would be considerable.”

”Not many scientists are prepared to take tales of alien abduction seriously, but John Mack, a Harvard professor who was killed in a road accident in north London last year, did. Ten years on from a row which nearly lost him his job, hundreds of people who claim they were abducted still revere him. Professor John E Mack was an eminent Harvard psychiatrist, psychoanalyst and Pulitzer Prize winner whose clinical work had focused on explorations of dreams, nightmares and adolescent suicide. Then, in 1990, he turned the academic community upside down because he wanted to publish his research in which he said that people who claimed they had been abducted by aliens, were not crazy at all. Their experiences, he said, were genuine. They were not mentally ill or delusional, he said, and it was the responsibility of academicians and psychiatrists not only to take what they said seriously, but to try to understand exactly what that experience was. And if reality as we know it was unable to take these experiences into serious consideration then what was needed was a change in our perception of reality.“What are the other possibilities?” said Mack. “Dreams, for instance, do not behave like that. They are highly individual depending on what’s going on in your sub-conscious at the time.“I would never say, yes, there are aliens taking people. [But] I would say there is a compelling powerful phenomenon here that I can’t account for in any other way, that’s mysterious. Yet I can’t know what it is but it seems to me that it invites a deeper, further inquiry.

Lifeline

For many people who claimed they had been abducted, John Mack was a lifeline. He worked with more than 200 of them, including professionals, psychologists, writers, students and business people.

Many had never told anyone else of their experiences apart from Mack for fear of ridicule from colleagues, friends and family. Here at last was a highly respected psychiatrist who was not only prepared to listen – but also take what they were saying seriously.

An abductee – or “experiencer” as they prefer to be known – says that alien encounters begin most commonly in their homes and at night. It can however happen anytime, anywhere. They say they are unable to move; they become extremely hot and then appear to float through solid objects, which their logical mind tells them can’t be happening.

Usually the experiencer says they are accompanied by one or two or more humanoid beings who guide them to a ship. They are then subjected to procedures in which instruments are used to penetrate virtually every part of their bodies, including the nose, sinuses, eyes, arms – abdomen and genitalia. Sperm samples are taken and women have fertilised eggs implanted or removed.

Hybrid offspring

“Have I questioned my own sanity”? says Peter Faust an experiencer and close friend of John Mack’s. “Absolutely, every day to a certain degree because the majority of the world says you’re crazy for having these experiences. But if it was just me who had contact with aliens, who had intimate experience with female aliens and producing hybrid offspring, I would say I’m certifiable, put me away, I’m crazy.

“And that’s how I felt when I initially had these experiences. My wife thought I’d lost it. But then I began to look at the experience outside myself and realised that hundreds if not thousands of people reported that exact same experience. And that gave me sanity. That gave me hope. I knew I couldn’t be fantasising this.”

The whole experience is often accompanied by a change in the experiencer’s understanding of humanity’s place in the universe. And it was this that forced Mack to question who we are in the deepest and broadest sense.

“I have come to realise this abduction phenomenon forces us, if we permit ourselves to take it seriously, to re-examine our perception of human identity – to look at who we are from a cosmic perspective,” he said.

Extraordinary work

In 1990 John Mack’s book Abduction: Human Encounters with Aliens was published. It shot to the top of the best sellers list and John Mack appeared on radio and television programmes. Harvard decided enough was enough.

Mack was sent a letter informing him that there was to be an inquiry into his research on alien abductions. It was the first time in Harvard’s history that a tenured professor was subjected to such an investigation. John Mack decided to fight back and hired a lawyer, Eric MacLeish.

“It was appalling that John had to go through this,” says MacLeish now. “And we made it clear that if we were to have a full blown trial here, then we were going to have a very public trial and call on everyone who worked with John – all of whom had nothing but praise for his extraordinary work and dedication to his patients – and I don’t think that’s what Harvard had in mind at all.”

There followed 14 months of stressful and bitter negotiations. “They tried to criticise me, silence me – by saying that by supporting the truth of what these people were experiencing, possibly I was confirming them in a distortion, or a delusion. So instead of being a good psychiatrist and curing them, I was by taking them seriously, confirming them in a delusion and harming them,” said Mack.

The inquiry made front page headlines all over the world and eventually Harvard dropped the case and a statement was issued reaffirming Mack’s academic freedom to study what he wished and concluding that he “remains a member in good standing of the Harvard Faculty of Medicine”.

He continued to work and write. But Mack was killed in a car collision last year in north London after leaving a Tube station. He was visiting the city to deliver a lecture on the subject which had won him the Pulitzer Prize in 1977, T E Lawrence.

But Mack’s work lives on with an institute which now bears his name; the hundreds of people who count themselves in “the experiencer community” still hold him in particular affection.

His search for an expanded notion of reality, which allows for experiences that might not fit traditional perceptions and worldviews, is one they, at least, will be hoping continues.

The above article is based upon a BBC Radio 4 documentary about John Mack, Abduction, Alienation and Reason, originally broadcast on Wednesday night June 8, 2005 on BBC Radio 4 at 2100 BST. (The broadcast is substantially longer, and different, than the above article).

”No muchos científicos están preparados para tomarse las historias acerca de abducciones extraterrestres en serio. Pero John Mack, un professor de Harvard, quién pereció a causa de un accidente automobilístico al Norte de Londres, el año pasado, sí . En diez años, en los que casi pierde su trabajo, cientos de personas que clamaban haber sido abducidas, todavía lo reverencian. El Profesor John E. Mack fue un eminente psiquiatra de Harvard; psicoanalista y ganador del Premio Pulitzer. Su trabajo clínico se había enfocado en la interpretación de los sueños, pesadillas y el suicidio adolescente. Luego en 1990, puso a la comunidad académica de cabeza porque quizo publicar sus investigaciones las que indicaban que las personas quienes habían sido raptadas por extraterrestres, no estaban locas. Sus experiencias, según él, eran genuinas. No eran enfermos mentales, ni deliraban, decía, y era la responsabilidad de los académicos y psiquatras, de no sólo tomar lo que ellos decían en serio, sino tratar de entender exactamente lo que eran aquellas experiencias. Si al conocer la realidad como la entendemos y no somos capaces de tomar estas experiencias en consideración, entonces lo que se necesita es cambiar nuestra percepción de la realidad.“¿Cuáles son las otras posibilidades?” decia Mack. “Los sueños, por ejemplo, no se comportan de esa forma. Se comportan particularmente dependiendo de lo que esté pasando en tu subconsciente en ese momento”.“Nunca diría, sí, hay extraterrestres raptando personas. [Pero] sí diría que hay un fenómeno muy poderoso, que no se le puede abordar de otra forma y que es misterioso. Aún no sé lo que es, pero invita a una investigación más profunda”.

Salva Vidas: Para muchas personas que dicen haber sido abducidas, John Mack fue un salva vidas. El trabajo con mas de 200 de ellos, incluyó profesionales, psicólogos, escritores, estudiantes y empresarios.

Muchos nunca habían contado sus historias a nadie mas, por miedo a ser ridiculizados por sus colegas, amigos y la familia. Es allí que al fin, había un respetado psiquiatra quien no sólo estaba preparado para escuchar – pero también para tomar lo que estaban diciendo en serio.

Un abducido – o “experimentador” como prefieren que se les llame – dice que los encuentros extraterrestres empiezan comunmente en sus casas, de noche. Aunque puede ocurrir a cualquier hora y en cualquier lugar. Ellos dicen que son incapaces de moverse; que sienten mucho calor y después flotan a través de objetos solidos; mientras sus mentes les advierten que eso no puede estar sucediendo.

Usualmente el experiementador dice que es acompañado por uno, dos o mas seres humanoides quienes los guían hacia una nave. Luego son sometidos a procedimentos en los cuales instrumentos son utilizados para penetrar virtualmente cualquier parte de sus cuerpos, incluyendo la nariz, los senos paranasales, los ojos, los brazos – abdomen y los genitales. Muestras de esperma son tomados de los hombres, mientras que a las mujeres se les implantan o remueven óvulos fertilizados.

Descendencia híbrida: “¿Que si he cuestionado mi cordura”? dice Peter Faust un experimentador y amigo cercano de John Mack. “Absolutamente, cada día hasta cierto límite, por que la mayor parte del mundo dice que estoy loco por tener estas experiencias. Pero si fuera sólo yo, quien tuviese contacto con extraterrestres, quien tuviese estas experiencias íntimas con mujeres extraterrestres y produciendo descendientes híbridos, diría mandeme al manicomio que estoy loco”.

“Y así me sentí al principio, cuando tuve estas experiencias. Mi esposa pensó que estaba loco. Pero luego empecé a darme cuenta que cientos o miles de personas habían reportado tener casi las mismas experiencias. Y eso me devolvió la cordura. Eso me dió esperanza. Y supe que no estaba fantaseando todo esto”.

Toda la experiencia está casi siempre acompañada por un cambio en el entendimiento del experimentador, acerca del lugar que ocupa la humanidad en el universe, y esto hizo que Mack se preguntara quienes somos en un sentido más amplio y profundo.

“Me he dado cuenta que el fenómeno de la abducción nos obliga, si lo tomamos en serio, a re-examinar nuestra percepción de la identidad humana -para ver quienes somos desde una perspectiva cósmica,” dijo él.

Trabajo Extraordinario: En 1990, el libro de John Mack titulado Abducción: Encuentros Humanos con Extraterrestres fue publicado [Edición en Español publicado en Buenos Aires con el título Contactos: 13 casos reles de secuestros por extraterrestres]. Se disparó hasta los primeros lugares de la lista de libros más vendidos y John Mack apareció en programas de radio y televisión. Y Harvard decidió que todo esto era demasiado.

Le enviaron una carta a Mack informándole que habría una investigación sobre su trabajo relacionado con las abduciones extraterrestres. Era la primera vez en la historia de Harvard que un profesor con tenencia se le abría una investigación. John Mack decidió pelear y contrató un abogado, su nombre, Eric MacLeish.

“Fue muy duro para John pasar por esto” dice MacLeish ahora. “ Y pusimos bien en claro que si nos íbamos a juicio, pues íbamos a tener uno muy público y llamaríamos a todos los que trabajaron con John – quienes no tienen nada mas que admiración por su extraordinaria labor y por su dedicación a sus pacientes – y no creo que eso, Harvard se lo tenía pensado”.

Siguieron 14 meses de estresantes y amargas negociaciones. “Ellos trataron de criticarme, silenciarme – argumentado que al sustentar como verdaderas las experiencias de estas personas, posiblemente las estaba validando como parte de una distorción o una alucinación. Que en vez de ser un buen psiquiatra y sanarlos, los estaba tomando en serio, comfirmando un engaño y haciéndoles daño,” dijo Mack.

La investigación apareció en las primeras planas de todo el mundo y eventualmente Harvard desestimó el caso. Se hizo un anuncio reafirmando la libertad académica de Mack de estudiar lo que el deseara, concluyendo que él “permanece como miembro honorable de la Facultad de Medicina de Harvard”.

El continuó trabajando y escribiendo. Mack murió en un accidente automovilístico el año pasado al norte de Londres después de salir de una estación de televisión. Estaba visitando la ciudad para dar una conferencia acerca del tema que le había dado el Premio Pulitzer en 1977, T. E. Lawrence.

El trabajo de Mack permanece vivo a través del Instituto que aún lleva su nombre; los cientos de personas que son parte de “la comunidad de experimentadores” le tienen un afecto particular.

Esa búsqueda por una noción más amplia de la realidad, la cual permite a los experimentadores, quienes no encajan con las percepciones tradicionales, es algo que ellos esperan que continúe.

How do the media respond when an elite scientist steps outside the boundaries of “real” science? Harvard psychiatrist John E. Mack’s research into the alien-abduction phenomenon has drawn the attention of fellow scientists and the media. Press coverage of his abduction studies may reveal how the media participate in defining the boundaries of science. J. Mack is a member of the scientific elite: a tenured member of the Harvard Medical School faculty, Pulitzer Prize winner, and well-known authority in his field. In public statements about his abduction work, he has asserted that this research is legitimate. He also has raised questions about the utility and validity of the standard scientific paradigm; scientists and journalists appear to find these questions unsettling or even unacceptable. Analyzing media coverage of Mack’s abduction research will improve understanding of how scientists use the media to fend off challenges to their sanctioned world view and how the media play a role in maintaining the cultural authority of science. Perhaps the gravest kind of threat to power is a challenge from within the power elite: dissecting media treatment of Mack, an elite scientist, will provide some new insights into how the scientific elite operates within the media-culture-power triad.
