The UFO Experience Reconsidered
by Rob Mason


The UFO Experience Reconsidered

This book was inspired by, and is loosely based on, "The UFO Experience: A Scientific Inquiry" (1972) by the late Dr. J Allen Hynek. Dr. Hynek’s book is generally considered to be the most influential book ever written about UFOs, but much has happened since 1972. This new book not only brings us up-to-date, but extrapolates on current science whenever possible. Perspectives are offered in three basic categories: natural causes, domestic technology, and alien technology. But perhaps more importantly a new way of looking at the phenomena is proposed that has been largely overlooked by other authors, and which finds itself at home in any of these three possibilities. The reader will not find discussion of conspiracy theories, accounts of abductions, or metaphysical and supernatural hypotheses. However, one will find speculations about possible alien visitations, what alien technology might be capable of, or what the distant future might hold.

The UFO Experience Reconsidered
by Robert Mason

The UFO Experience Reconsidered, by Robert Mason, is a sober and refreshing reassessment of a phenomenon that has intrigued the public for more than half a century. The book takes as its inspiration and role model, J. Allen Hynek's classic 1972 work on the subject, and reexamines the UFO conundrum in a modern scientific setting. That people witness unexplained luminous events in the sky and on the ground, and occasionally much more dramatic happenings, is not seriously in doubt. Some of these stories may be accounted for by poorly understood natural phenomena, such as ball lightning or "earthquake lights," which are interesting enough in themselves. Yet there remains a stubborn residue of perplexing and hard-to-dismiss cases which challenges science with the possibility that something is going on of more dramatic origin, possibly extraterrestrial, possibly artificial, and (just) possibly extraterrestrial and artificial. Robert Mason brings to the table a polymath's analysis of a topic that continues to intrigue us all.

The UFO Experience Reconsidered: Science and Speculation

Rob Mason attempts to reduce UFOs to science. Unlike many books on this subject, even the speculations of this book have a scientific basis.

Mendocino, California—March 15, 2008—This book was inspired by, and is loosely based on The UFO Experience: A Scientific Inquiry (1972) by the late Dr. J. Allen Hynek. Dr. Hynek’s book is generally considered to be the most influential book ever written about UFOs but much has happened since 1972. This new book not only brings us up-to-date, but extrapolates on current science whenever possible. The book is published by Schooner Moon Books of Mendocino, California.

The UFO Experience Reconsidered: Science and Speculation offers perspectives in three basic categories: natural causes, domestic technology, and alien technology. But perhaps more importantly a new way of looking at the phenomena is proposed that has been largely overlooked by other authors, and which finds itself at home in any of these three possibilities.

The reader will not find discussions of government cover-ups or conspiracy theories, accounts of abductions, or metaphysical and supernatural hypotheses. However, not excluded are speculations about possible alien visitations, what alien technology might be capable of, or what the distant future might hold. Rob Mason wrote The UFO Experience Reconsidered: Science and Speculation as his personal adventure of the mind which is why it is written in the first person. Recollections and research are inserted where deemed appropriate.

About The Author: Mr. Mason brings to his writing the multiple perspectives gained from a diverse working and personal history. He is a graduate of Oregon State University and was for many years a Registered Professional Engineer in the State of California. He also spent over twenty years as a professional artist, and a number of his works are reproduced in this book. This is his second book.
