Mack believes that the "experiencers" he has worked with have
encountered an as-yet unclassified and unknown form of
intelligence. He is unwilling to speculate beyond that because
doing so would merely pigeonhole a global and mythologically
rich phenomenon with present cultural and technological
conceits.

Other civilizations have used myriad interpretations
conveniently suited to what they knew (or thought they knew):
gods, demons, devils, goblins, fairies, etc.

The late Philip K. Dick interpreted his "close encounters" to
some sort of cosmic "trickster," and spent the end of his life
wrestling with the very uncomfortable notion that the phenomenon
might never reveal itself.
