Recognized as an unconventional thinker who raises legitimate questions about humanity's history and prehistory, author Graham Hancock has challenged the entrenched views of orthodox scholars. In the first half, he discussed his work exploring the human experience with psychedelics from the Stone Age to the Space Age. Much has changed in the attitude toward psychedelics since he first wrote about them in 2005. "Mainstream medical establishments are discovering the psychedelics have enormous healing properties," and they can help people with such conditions as PTSD and depression, he noted. "I think psychedelics are particularly intriguing because they offer another way to explore this mysterious thing we call reality, and may offer us a wider vision of reality," he stated.
There is more evidence that the brain is a receiver of consciousness, and this has a bearing on the UFO/alien phenomenon. During altered states, we may find access to areas of reality normally closed off to us, he explained. "There are astonishing numbers of entity encounters supported in psychedelic experiences...and science is beginning to pay attention to this," he detailed. At experiments at Imperial College in the UK, subjects are given doses of DMT (one of the active ingredients in the shamanistic brew ayahuasca) and report entering into a totally convincing parallel reality. Hancock described entities that people sometimes see on ayahuasca, such as animal-human mixtures that can communicate telepathically. During one of Hancock's ayahuasca visions, he said he saw UFOs flying above his head, and then typical-looking Greys sought permission from him to take him aboard, but he shouted out, "No!" Later, he regretted this decision.
In the latter half, C2C's investigative reporter Cheryll Jones presented her interview with UFO researcher Don Schmitt who talked about the upcoming 75th anniversary of the famous 1947 Roswell, New Mexico UFO crash. Roswell is the "granddaddy of all UFO cases because it encompasses every possibility, not just eyewitnesses" but also physical artifacts and non-human bodies, Schmitt remarked. The initial newspaper accounts reported the UFO crash but then retracted the story after the military covered it up with a weather balloon narrative. It wasn't until thirty years later that Maj. Jesse Marcel Sr. came forward and said the weather balloon explanation was false. He held wreckage in his hand that he said was not made on this Earth.
Dozens of deathbed testimonies have come out over the years, revealing details about the crash and the recovered bodies, Schmitt told Cheryll. According to similar witness testimonies, the bodies were short in stature, had disproportionately large eyes and heads, a small orifice for the nose and ears, and wore silver jumpsuits covering ash-gray skin. There have been hundreds of both military and civilian witnesses who have offered their testimonies but not one witness has ever come forward to corroborate the government's version of the story, Cheryll pointed out. Schmitt also talked about the Roswell UFO Museum, which he co-founded, noting that all the museum's exhibits are now interactive.
