Examination of Paranormal and UFO Hot Spots Dr Peter McCue

Author Dr P. A. McCue joins Kate Valentine to discuss his book Examination of Paranormal and UFO Hot Spots.  Friday November 15 2013


Exam­i­na­tion of Para­nor­mal and UFO Hot Spots Dr Peter McCue

Peter worked for many years as a clin­i­cal psy­chol­o­gist. He lives in Scot­land. His qual­i­fi­ca­tions include a Ph.D., from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Glas­gow, award­ed for a the­sis on hyp­no­sis.

Peter’s inter­est in psy­chi­cal research and UFO phe­nom­e­na goes back decades. He’s the author of numer­ous arti­cles on these sub­jects (see select bib­li­og­ra­phy below) and a recent­ly pub­lished book, Zones of Strange­ness: An Exam­i­na­tion of Para­nor­mal and UFO Hot Spots. He believes that para­nor­mal phe­nom­e­na occur, and that many UFO expe­ri­ences are gen­uine­ly anom­alous. He con­tends that if we want to obtain a com­pre­hen­sive under­stand­ing of our­selves and the nature of real­i­ty, these enig­mat­ic phe­nom­e­na can’t be ignored.

Examination of Paranormal and UFO Hot Spots

Over the cen­turies, there’ve been many reports, world­wide, of unex­plained phe­nom­e­na. Cer­tain areas seem to play host to a dis­pro­por­tion­ate num­ber of them, either tem­porar­i­ly or on a long-term basis. Some places acquire a rep­u­ta­tion for just one type of man­i­fes­ta­tion. Oth­ers seem to be the set­ting for a vari­ety of them – for exam­ple, cat­tle muti­la­tions, sight­ings of strange ani­mals, and UFO phe­nom­e­na.

Can the reports be believed? Are the phe­nom­e­na gen­uine­ly para­nor­mal? Do cer­tain areas real­ly see an unusu­al­ly high num­ber of anom­alous events? What’s behind the man­i­fes­ta­tions? Do they involve extra-ter­res­tri­als, crea­tures from ‘oth­er dimen­sions’, time trav­ellers, the work­ings of the human mind, or some sort of high­er intel­li­gence?

These are just some of the ques­tions that Peter address­es in Zones of Strange­ness: An Exam­i­na­tion of Para­nor­mal and UFO Hot Spots. This 560-page book cites a mass of case mate­r­i­al from the UK, the USA and else­where, and also includes foun­da­tion chap­ters that dis­cuss the­o­ries about haunt­ings, UFOs and oth­er strange phe­nom­e­na.

  1. On the 16 Sep­tem­ber 1994 2 extrater­res­tri­als deliv­ered a mes­sage — con­cern­ing our nuclear weapons — to 62 chil­dren at Ruwa in Zim­bab­we.

    John E. Mack inter­viewed the chil­dren and then trans­mit­ted that mes­sage to the world: to all of us as indi­vid­u­als.

    My friends, it is now time for you to respond to that mes­sage.

    Please read this arti­cle to find out how:

    ET has asked you a ques­tion — he is wait­ing for you to respond.

  2. Enjoyed the show, avid ufo hunter, six sight­ings, ear­ly chid­hood encounter, my theary is that the jok­sters are in real­i­ty dev­er­sions decoys at times. They play the role to dev­ert you away from the actu­al event that is tak­ing place. I enjoyed the Brack­ston account with the appar­ent machan­i­cal mon­ster. that I feel strong­ly was a dev­er­sion. The acual beings were there but minip­u­lat­ed this decoy so not to be dis­cov­ered or seen. AGAin not all sight­ings are equal or same in nature only that at some occa­sion this tac­tic is employed to hide the actu­al event. Thanks for your won­der­ful show. DC
