Nick Redfern: The Cryptoterrestrials, Earth’s Forgotten People
What if the “aliens” are not from other planets? In THE CRYPTOTERRESTRIALS, Mac Tonnies proposes that at least some accounts of alien visitation can be attributed to a humanoid species indigenous to the Earth, a sister race that has adapted to our numerical superiority by developing a surprisingly robust technology. At the same time, this groundbreaking work attempts to reconcile the mythological and contemporary accounts of “little people” into a coherent picture. “For too long, we’ve called them ‘aliens,’ assuming that we represent our planet’s best and brightest,” writes Tonnies. “Maybe that’s exactly what they want us to think.”
Mac Tonnies (20 August 1975 – 22 October 2009) was an American author and blogger whose work focused on futurology, transhumanism and paranormal topics. Tonnies grew up in Independence, Missouri, and attended William Chrisman High School and Ottawa University. He lived in Kansas City, Missouri.
