Whitley Strieber discussed his encounters with the 'Visitors' which he mined for his new book The Grays. His experiences strongly suggest to him that the visitors are coming to us from another dimension rather than somewhere out in the stars, or if they are from another planet they may use methods of dimensional travel.
Touching the skin of these beings can sometimes lead to an allergic reaction, he noted, and though they have spindly frames they can be incredibly strong. He described one instance where one of the creatures jumped on his back and was able to hold him down with an iron grip.
While the Grays may not be that far ahead of us technologically, they do exhibit abilities in using invisibility and manipulating gravity, he reported. Strieber said he is interesting in seeing human beings become an active partner in their relationship with the visitors-- to be empowered, so that we can glean something from our interactions with them. He does not believe abductees are chosen at random and detailed that family lines are often followed, and that there is a higher number of Celts and American Indians involved. For more, view the recap of Whitley's appearance earlier in the week.
He also touched on the topic of climate change and cited a list of things people can personally do to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
