From the outset, Hynek and Vallee make their position clear: UFOs represent an unknown but real phenomenon. The far-reaching implications take us to the very edge of what we consider the known and real in our physical environment. Perhaps, say the authors, UFOs signal the existence of a domain of nature as yet totally unexplored.
In this mind-stretching audiobook, the authors sample UFO reports - including those allegedly involving humanoids - and describe the patterns that have been perceived in the behavior of the phenomenon.
They also establish a framework for the further study of the UFO phenomenon. Where might such study lead? What can be studied, and how? What is the real nature of the UFO phenomenon? Does it originate with the actions of other intelligences in the universe? Does the UFO phenomenon have a purely physical explanation, or is there a vaster, hidden realm that holds the solution?

Where can we find a wellspring of inspiration to raise us from our doldrums, rekindle our enthusiasm about everyday events, and encourage us to explore untested possibilities? Maybe we can find it in familiar places: within ideas and examples of people we know that illuminate higher values to aspire to; among simple interests and pleasures that we take for granted and never fully recognize; and connected to unresolved problems that cry out for innovative solutions.
Being motivated fundamentally involves caring enough about someone or something to influence our course of thought and action. There are occasions when its source may come from a realization that the path that we are on is unacceptable, and we must change it, even if we're not certain where to go.
In Reflections on Oceans and Puddles, author and educator Larry Bell summarizes a lifetime of learning to create a marvelous guide for the open-minded, young and old.
