Question
Hello, my name is Rebecca I am doing a class project to do a pod cast with my fellow classmate Michael we were wondering if we could interview you by phone about an alien invasion?

Answer
Hi, I'm frightfully busy right now and feel it would be hard to line up a good time. But you can ask me questions thru email (here) and I'll see if I can answer. It all depends on your focus... what you're looking for... types of questions, etc.

Thanks,

MC

Expertise

Human beings almost always interpret reality. Even with so-called paranormal or spiritual experiences, an interpretive process usually follows.

With this in mind, I'm interested in how the alleged experience of UFOs and Aliens affects human beings.

I'm not a debunker of UFOs and Aliens nor a blind believer. If you're looking for statistics, a verification or refutation of popular cases in the media or historical answers, please ask another expert. But if you're seeking a psychological, cultural and spiritual analysis of the belief in UFOs and Aliens, I can most likely be of assistance.

Experience

Well, no I haven't been on a space ship and I have not seen an ET. But I've been interested in the idea for a long time.
