Communion: A True Story
If you have ever looked into aliens, you’ve probably seen this image. It is the cover of the book, Communion: A True Story, painted by Ted Seth Jacobs and depicts an “grey” alien even though the author never expressly states that his abduction was carried out by aliens. Communion is a book that is widely considered to by a bible of sorts for alien/UFO enthusiasts. It tells the story of the author,
Whitley Strieber, who actually wrote several other horror novels though Communion is nonfiction, being abducted from his upstate New York cabin the evening of Boxing Day in 1985.
Throughout the book, Strieber refers to them as “The Visitors” so as to leave room for the possibility that they only exist in his mind and were not, in fact, extraterrestrials. The book received national notoriety, reaching the number one spot on the New York Times Best Seller list. Following that, Strieber wrote several more follow up books to his experience.
The final book is Solving the Communion Enigma: What Is to Come, which was published in 2011, and explores the possibility of parallel universes and looks at a variety of phenomena that could be related to what we term as “extraterrestrials,” including crop circles and mutilations. He concludes that “the Visitors” are intent on moving the human race toward higher levels of understanding and consciousness within the endless multiverse.
While the book was written over 30 years ago, it still remains vital reading material for those interested in this field and is lauded as “the truth.”
