“For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one.”

– Khalil Gibran

Zombies rising from their graves…blood sucking vampires damned for all eternity…and humans trapped in a life and death struggle between Heaven and Hell. For thousands of years, mankind has told tales of encounters with strange, soulless creatures. Are these beliefs merely man-made fabrications – or could there be extraterrestrial origins in earthly encounters with the undead? [15]

INTRODUCTION [15a]

Zombies rising from their graves…bloodsucking vampires damned for all eternity…and humans trapped in a life-and-death struggle between Heaven and Hell. For thousands of years mankind has told tales of encounters with strange soulless creatures. But are these mere myths or are they beliefs rooted in scientific fact?

“They will attack, they will drink blood and disappear without ever being noticed.”

Jonathan Young, Ph.D.
(Founding Curator, Joseph Campbell Archives)

“The blood is the thing that reconnects the world that we live in with the world of the dead.”

Richard Rader, Ph.D.
(Lecturer, UCLA Dept of Classics/UCSB Dept of Classics),
(Author, Theology and Existentialism in Aeschylus)

“Avatars have the power to take dead people, and bring them back to life. What kind of powers would you have to have to do that? The powers of an extraterrestrial?”

 – David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Millions of people around the world believe we have been visited in the past by extraterrestrial beings. What if it were true? Did Ancient Aliens really help to shape our history? And, if so, are there extraterrestrial origins in earthly stories of the undead?
