|(Amazing Stories, 1930)|
Long before the so-called "flying saucers" appeared over our heads (24/06/ 1947), various literary and artistic works already reflected scenes related UFOs in their pages. This point is extremely important to understand the relevance of UFOs and especially their involvement and connection with the human psyche. But how is it possible that science fiction presaged close encounters with extraterrestrials years in advance?.If fantasy literature, collected, with drawings, many of the issues presented and characterized the UFO phenomenon at present, this would demonstrate that the alleged alien visitation hide a totally opposite nature and purpose, the way proposed by Extraterrestrial Hypothesis defenders. This heterodox approach would imply that the "creator" of the UFO experience, that we call generically as "external agent" is able to tune the human psyche, "diving" in their "files" (images, memories, etc.) and recreate them into an anomalous experience in an elaborate and refined "theatrical representation "(UFO incidents).

What we say is that there is an unknown external factor that interacts with the human mind, and "makes" an anomalous event based on some unconscious knowledge, but "distorted" in the eyes the own witness, presenting them as something extraordinary and external completely. Although if we find
stimuli and primordial images that originate and are expressed in the close encounters, probably we find "unexpected" links to the unconscious of witnesses, or otherwise with the collective unconscious, that is utilized by the "external agent "to determine and" design "many of the elements that make up the experience of contact with alleged extraterrestrials.
