UFOs are of special interest to the paranormal investigator, presenting as they do, the potential for multiple witnesses and physical evidence. However, UFOs present a perennial challenge to sceptic and believer alike when the sober and credible ‘nuts & bolts’ Ufology melts into the otherworldly; presenting far more phenomena than lights in the sky or radar returns, but poltergeist type phenomena, telepathy, ultraterrestrial entities and high strangeness.
Scottish Ufologist Andrew Hennessey’s presentation will focus on the more extraordinary aspects of witness statements; challenging experiences, often dreamlike and incredible. However, uncommon as these experiences may be, they are not unknown in the literature and represent a significant aspect of all UFO and Paranormal Phenomena – sometimes it just gets really strange.
Andrew has a lifetime of exposure to the paranormal and has been researching this subject from 1980. A member of the Theosophical Society for 20 years, he ran a discussion group in Edinburgh called the Transformation Studies Group from 1996-2000. He also trained as a ‘Spiritualist medium’ at Albany street in Edinburgh with Mr and Mrs D Wright and platform medium Winnie Lewis in the late 1970’s. Interested in the ‘Close Encounter’ phenomenon from a very early age, he has an interest in folklore, myth and ancient archaeology – lately doing field investigations into ‘high strangeness’ at Gorebridge, Midlothian. He has appeared in various media e.g. the Discovery Channel, Paranormal Magazine, Jeff Rense – American coast to coast, Amazon, Nightsearch internet radio, Aglobalfocus, BBC Uncanny Edinburgh project, the Scotsman etc and today operates the Stargate Edinburgh Tour. His campaign for the human rights of ‘alien abductees’ called Xenopolitics, began in 2007 as a dialog with that part of the exopolitics movement that thought that ‘all aliens were good’ – despite evidence to the contrary.
Andrew’s talk will take place as part of the SSPR Lecture Programme on: Thursday the 18th of April, at 7.30pm in The Glasgow Theosophical Society building, 17 Queens Crescent, Glasgow, G4 9BL.
