For at least a century, writers of Science Fiction have explored the concept of CONTACT between Humans and Aliens. Because “Fear of the Unknown” plays such a big role in human imagination, the majority of these stories naturally focus on the THREAT Aliens pose to our Civilization. It is often assumed, therefore, that the only possible Intention of such contact would be Military Style INVASION — to Conquer or Destroy the Human Race, and take over planet Earth.
Hollywood examples include: The War of the Worlds (1953) and Independence Day (1996).
However, another Scenario: subtle INFILTRATION, stretched out over time, is far more likely to Succeed. In Nature, this happens when one Invasive Species slowly overtakes the natural habitat of another, until the original is completely replaced. From a Scientific viewpoint, this might be considered a kind of EVOLUTION, aptly described by the phrase “Survival of the Fittest” that originated from Darwinian Evolutionary Theory as a way to describe the mechanism of Natural Selection.
Hollywood examples include: Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956), The Invaders (1967)
To this day, creators of SCI-FI entertain the idea that FIRST CONTACT has Not yet occurred (for Better or for Worse), and so many versions of this event are played out before us in Books and Movies. Examples include: Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), The Abyss (1989), Contact (1997) and Arrival (2016).
These stories can teach us a great deal about ourselves, including the nature of human fear and how we respond to “Outsiders”.
Beyond Fiction, we have other written sources to help us Discover the TRUTH about Alien Contact. This includes the Mythology of Ancient Cultures and the serious work of modern day UFO Abduction Researchers like Budd Hopkins (Missing Time, 1981 and Intruders, 1987), John E. Mack (Passport to the Cosmos, 1999), and David M. Jacobs (Secret Life, 1992, The Threat, 1997 and Walking Among Us, 2015).
Fans of Ancient Astronaut Theory, the works of Erich von Däniken (Chariots of the Gods?, 1968) and the History Channel’s ongoing documentary series, ANCIENT ALIENS, have no doubts. To quote the 1996 Film Independence Day:
of whether or not we are alone in the universe
has been answered.”
As storytellers, we found inspiration in the work of UFO Abduction researchers like Budd Hopkins, filmmakers like Steven Spielberg, and the insights of Hopi Mythology. Our quest to uncover the Truth about Life elsewhere in the Universe and its connection to Humanity’s Future began years ago … with an exploration of The X-Files (1993-2018), Fire in the Sky (1993) and Ancient Aliens (2009-Present).
Each book in THE SURVIVAL TRILOGY explores the concept of Human Contact with Aliens through the Mythology of Diverse Cultures — Book 1: Native American, Book 2: Asian-American, and Book 3: African-American.
Book 1 A GLEAM OF LIGHT begins with a documented UFO Event which took place in 1995, with America West Flight 564. It forever changes the life of Una Waters (Our central character, age 8). Twenty-one years later, a plea for help pulls Una away from her D.C. government job back to Hopiland, her childhood home, to help solve a mystery when the U.S. Army invades the Sacred Peaks.
Book 2 THE DRAGON’S GLARE finds Una on special assignment to Chinatown, New York City. Unexplained acts of violence include a New Year’s parade attack and a cyberbreach at the NYPD. An episode of “Missing Time” and an Out-Of-This-World encounter confirm Una’s childhood beliefs in “Sky People” and so she accepts without a doubt that … We Are Not Alone.
Book 3 BEYOND THE WORLD takes Una on a Honeymoon Adventure to Yosemite National Park. Together with Explorer’s Club members of the Kikuyu Tribe, she uncovers a UFO Mystery. Clues lead to a series of Otherworldly campsites, Forgotten Caves, and Living Pterosaurs — all pointing to an ALIEN Conspiracy!
SCI-FI has explored the concept of CONTACT between Humans and Aliens for at least a century. Our fear of INVASION too often takes over in storytelling … blinding us to the very real possibility that INFILTRATION of Humanity by Human-Looking Replacements is the far more likely scenario. At least one modern day UFO Abduction researcher (David M. Jacobs) reports that this “program” has been taking place for decades — with its goal: “Planetary Acquisition”.
It may, in fact, be a part of Evolution … for the Human Race.
