You know the Australian aboriginals have this concept of the Dreamtime, and I think when you put the Dreamtime, the chemistry of DMT, the abduction stories together, and the depth with which modern media has programmed and messed with people... You're very close to being able to begin to talk about the alien phenomenon. I think there ARE aliens, but I think they can only reach us through our minds. They don't cross the universe in ships of titanium, they don't even project holograms of themselves into the desert air. They come through the human mind. And if you look at the human mind, in all cultures and in all times and places except western Europe and a few intellectuals in the past few hundred years, the human mind has always been haunted by sprites, gnomes, nixies... so I don't see the U.F.O. as anything more than the latest wave of this mysterious relationship we have with disembodied minds through the imagination. Well then people say "so this is the old psychological reduction argument". No, because when I say the "the human imagination", i don't mean some paltry psychological function I think the human imagination is the largest part of us, and where we're going to spend most of the rest of human history.
I think it's a kind of self fulfilling prophecy. We are contributing to it as we uncover it within ourselves. Something is calling us toward itself and as we approach it we become more like it. Something is sculpting out of the primate body over a couple of million years an entirely different kind of creature and as we go to meet this thing, we are taking on more and more of it's characteristics. It's god-like power, it's ability to span space and time. And when we finally do reach it I imagine there will be a kind of effortless moment of merging and recognition. - Terence McKenna
