Terence McKenna and Kenneth Ring on UFOs and NDEs

parts one and two, these are required viewing.

A short conversation, in two parts, between two extraordinary thinkers, Terence McKenna and Kenneth Ring. The book The Omega Project was written by Ring, and in it he explores the relationship between the UFO phenomenon and the Near Death Experience. This video was created shot on location in Prague, Czechoslovakia during the International Transpersonal Conference in June 1992, known at Prague Gnosis.

Very interesting post/videos Mike. I have been trying to get in contact with Kenneth Ring to share with him my experience of being taken to merge with the creator/light during my January 19th, 2011 encounter. But he is a hard man to reach.

It's going to take a researcher like Kenneth to really encompass the full range of the alien contact experience.

Yes I agree the structure of the experience is similar. But there may also be the experience that mirrors an actual NDE, such as my own experience. I have learnt of only one other like my own - Betty Andreasson. But I can't help wondering how many other people have been given the opportunity to have the same experience.

I would be curious to know how Stanislaw Groff would interpret the NDE and the alien related NDE like experience.

Have a great year Mike !!

Best wishes,

I wonder if Kenneth Ring has changed his mind about seeing these experiences as literal ???

I agree about symbolic aspects but I also feel strongly from my own experiences and those of my family, that it is more than just symbolic.

And I am sure my dog, who was present during several encounters, would agree. If he could talk human !

Hi Mike,
Bit off topic here, but was listening to your interview with Chris Knowles about weekly TV movies containing much weirdness.

Here's a playlist someone has posted on youtube:

Chris mentioned this one in a blog post a while back:
