I'm a little late in catching up on my esoteric/UFO material, including UFO Magazine. (And that's considering I have a column in the magazine!) But in the October issue of UFO Magazine, is a great interview with Ray Fowler, conducted by crypto-esoteric writer Nick Redfern.
There's so much interesting material in this interview, I urge you to try to get a copy of the issue.
For those who may not know, Fowler brought the Betty Andreasson case to our attention with The Andreasson Affair: The Documented Investigation of a Woman's Abduction Aboard a UFO (1980)
Mixed Motif Reports
As any student of the esoteric knows, a lot of the flying saucer/UFO phenomenon includes things that "shouldn't be there," with a mixed up scene of weird beings, telepathic communications, OBEs, NDEs, spiritual or religious moments of awe, renewed or newly found creative abilities, healing powers, cryptid type creatures,ghost type or haunting type experiences, and much more that transcends a mere nuts and bolts flying saucer craft from outer space.
Fowler has an idea about that. He refers us to Dr. Kenneth Ring, who called this medley of weirdness "mixed motif reports." Fowler believes all these things are connected; of the same source, and they or it has the same goal as far as we humans are concerned.
1947 and 1953
Fowler mentions seeing a "flying disk" in July of 1947 in Massachusetts. In 1953, Fowler investigated a crashed saucer event in Kingman, Arizona.
If you haven't read the interview yet, try to get a copy. It's particularly interesting to read Fowler's theories on what "they" are, and what "they" are doing.
