Regarding ufology, she states in one of her letters to this group:
“. . .it is not enough to read just one author, or hear just one piece of the story. I hope you can begin to see the complexity of the subject, and have a taste of the myriad facets and points of view. I like what Mary Rodwell said about having to jump from one disappearing ice flow of understanding to another. There are no short or easy answers, and yet I hope you have become convinced, as I have, that it’s an important subject, and something we all need to inform ourselves about. The ramifications for our understanding of human history on the planet, what is really going on in our world, and the ultimate nature of reality, are (literally) earthshaking and transformative.”
