I have become a big fan of Jeremy Vaeni in recent weeks. Although he is an "experiencer," he has not let his experiences drag him off the deep end into muddled metaphysics, as some have. I've followed Budd Hopkins' work since Missing Time (which scared the crap out of me) and have noticed an ever-so-slight evolution of his perspective, away from the nuts-and-bolts/scary alien hypothesis toward something more nuanced. Perhaps, in time, he will conclude, as Jacques Vallée has, that "unknown aerial phenomena" cannot be accepted at face value. The slice of the world that we physically perceive is only that; much of reality escapes our perception, and the anomalies that we do perceive might well be a masquerade.
