4.0 out of 5 stars Well reasoned and occasionally amazing, February 8, 2000
This review is from: Grand Illusions: The Spectral Reality Underlying Sexual Ufo Abductions, Crashed Saucers, Afterlife Experiences, Sacred Ancietn Ritual Sites, & Other Enigmas (Paperback)
Grand Illusions by Dr Gregory L Little is a reasonably well written book and presents a concise series of logical arguments, all of which appear to be based on good evidence.The book elegantly disposes of conspiracy theories and investigates a number of documented mysteries that later evaporate under detailed examination. It also gives a good historical account of the abduction phenomenon through the ages.
Little deals well with the often slippery topic of Jungian archetypes and delves into the neurochemical basis for many `fringe' phenomena. Interestingly Little gives the reader detailed instruction on how to construct a psychomanteum, a device for meeting spectral beings (do so at your own risk!).
There is really good chapter on the ancient Egyptians and their beliefs. Little provides an incredible explanation of one of the uses that the Great Pyramid might have been put to.
The book is let down in part by the poor quality and dubious relevance of some of the photographic material and by John Michael McCarthy's unnecessary illustrations. With a little more attention paid to presentation I feel that Grand Illusions would easily been worth 5 stars.
Little's final conclusions seem to fit all the known facts and are startling in their implications, but I'm at a loss to see how anyone could prove that the EM theory is true.
In conclusion this is a must-read book for those who are complete UFO sceptics and for those who believe that extra terrestrial craft are visiting the Earth. It provides evidence for a theory that may not be popular, but is hard to disprove.
