–  Doctor’s Advice –

“I hypothesize there is a higher level of reality and it interpenetrates our everyday life, creating coincidences and apparitions. A pre-condition to observe it in its pure form is to reject or ignore all phenomena of the lower level. For a scientist, or course, that is the hardest part of the assignment.”very visible, more immediate energy and force are, so to speak, ten that are invisible.”

– Dr. Jacques Vallee, Forbidden Science – Vol. 3 – Journals 1980-1989: On the Trail of Hidden Truths  (Documatica Research, 2016)
