Accepting the events as being kundalini awakening were not taken up upon discovery of the syndrome, there was still a real physical world aspect to these phenomena. Things in the physical world were being manipulated and it was hard to ignore the possibility of the traditional UFO/Aliens angle. Being that one of these events was a supposed CE3 phenomenon, it was an angle that had to be explored.
It was then a pleasant surprise to come across the work of Dr Jacques Vallee, who in UFOlogy terms is the self confessed hieratic among heretics, as his views are at odds with the UFOlogist status quo.
Before I continue, I must state that I do not hold his work as fact-of-the-matter, the book (Dimensions) that I will link is not an academic work as far as I am concerned. There are no references and for the extraordinary claims he makes would benefit from their inclusion. However this work introduced me to his Inter-Dimensional Hypothesis (IDH), which indeed did help understand the events at hand.
I choose not to post quotes from this book, but wish to alert the readers to its availability online (for free), and list it as suggested reading, as concepts from this text may be used later on to illustrate ideas.
