Whitley Strieber's newest release, The Secret School, details the summer he spent as a nine-year-old student of alien teachers intent on demonstrating to human beings the possibility of time travel, the power of prophecy, and psychic ability. The memory of this alien experience was suppressed deep in Strieber's subconscious, until he was abducted by aliens from his upstate New York home in December 1985. It was then that he began to recover the memory of his participation in the secret school.
"The central theme of The Secret School," he writes, "is that man can become free in time and space, and that by lifting our eyes, we can gain access to new powers and unlimited promise."
The lessons that Strieber learned from his extraterrestrial mentors prepared him for the chilling interactions with the unknown that he has chronicled in three previous bestsellers. In The Secret School, Strieber relates the nine lessons involving the manipulation of time that forever changed his life and his belief in the real presence of intelligent alien beings. There are real lessons to be learned about human capacity, and the future of the human race, if we are willing to learn them. "Taken as a whole," the author writes, "these memories suggest that we have tremendously undervalued ourselves and that we have incredible capabilities of body and mind that we have not yet addressed because we're not yet willing to believe that they're real."
Have you ever questioned the origins of a dream or contemplated a vision of the past or future? Are you willingtobelieve the notion of time travel and extraterrestrial life?
