Overview

Dr. Kenneth Ring is one of the world's chief authorities on near-death experiences. He was the first researcher to offer scientific validation for these remarkable experiences after they had been anecdotally described by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross and Raymond Moody, Jr. Now, in his exciting new book, Ring examines the even stranger phenomenon of human encounters with UFOs. In the research reported in this book, Dr. Ring shows that there are in fact startling similarities between persons claiming to have undergone alien abduction and those who have had a near-death encounter. Many aspects of their childhoods and lives before their extraordinary encounters, as well as the changes they report afterward, show uncanny parallels. In light of his findings, Dr. Ring posits the existence of "an encounter-prone personality" - a distinctive, spiritually sensitive, and visionary psyche that may, collectively, represent the next stage in human evolution. The Omega Project is a compelling work of cutting-edge psychology that takes us closer to the frontiers of higher consciousness and human potentiality.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Ring, author of Life at Death (Quill: Morrow, 1982), compares the experiences of UFO abductees to the out-of-body journeys of those near death. Initially, his title seems misleading. He mixes a few archetypes and fairy tales with some philosophy and religion, the result of which is a theory regarding the ``encounter-prone personality.'' This type of person represents the spiritual evolution of humankind, people who are tapped into the ``Mind at Large''--i.e., a creative, helpful force that will assist us in saving ourselves and our planet from destruction. This book differs from other UFO material in that the question of whether the encounters are real or not is not at issue. The symbolism is what matters, e.g. abductees usually report receiving a physical examination from the aliens. Ring sees this as a warning that we need to examine and to heal ourselves. Loaded with case histories of near-death experiences and UFO encounters, questionnaires, and impressive notes and bibliography, this will appeal to general readers.--Maureen R. Shields, New City Lib., N.Y.
