5.0 out of 5 stars New era UFO speculation, March 7, 2010
This review is from: The Cryptoterrestrials: A Meditation on Indigenous Humanoids and the Aliens Among Us (Paperback)
Mac Tonnies passed away in his sleep on October 18th of 2009, at age 34. This was his last book and his legacy to the study of UFOs and the paranormal.

For "The Cryptoterrestrials," Tonnies interviewed some of the most original thinkers inside and outside of the UFO field, and studied their writings. He decided (as a few others did) that the concept of alien life from other planets did not explain many of the reported high strangeness aspects of the phenomenon: Why do these so-called "aliens" apparently need to abduct people over and over? Why do they need so many tries to learn what we can already decipher from one biological sample? Such bizarre behavior could certainly use a better explanation.

Tonnies presents another line of thought: Perhaps non-humans, if they truly exist, exhibit the interest they do because they are as intimately connected to the Earth as us and other living things. Such concern would be evident if they actually shared our planet.

This book is for those who want to explore the newest speculation on the age-old question of apparent non-humans and their possible interactions with us. Tonnies does not wish to push his theory as the final word on the subject. Those looking for definitive answers will not find a great deal of comfort here. If you are looking for enlightened and intelligent discussion on anomalies in general and on the UFO subject in particular, you are in for a treat.
