Individuals who would bring a new perspective to the field: Edith Fiore, Ph.D. - Encounters Either Alice Bryant or Linda Seebach, MSW - Healing Shattered Reality Wendy Kaminer - she wrote a book called Sleeping with Extra- Terrestrials, The Rise of Irrationalism & Perils of Piety Angela Thompson Smith, Ph.D. (the sub title of her book: A Scientist Probes the Enigma of her Alien Contact) You all never heard of these researchers? I have and they really are not trying to claim a position in the ufo orthodoxy and seeking the approval of the male researchers already in the field. They are pushing the boundaries.
