William Burroughs, Whitley Strieber, and Ufo's


"It seems natural that someone who had written about drugs, Mayan gods and paranormal voices would seek contact with extra-human intelligence. Burroughs most likely saw it as an opportunity to examine and perhaps question something or someone who inhabited the realms beyond western, 20th century ideas of “reality.” Without specifically mentioning it in his writings, Burroughs was treading the path of the occultist and shaman. What he found, among other secrets, was something that had been there all along: the struggle between good and evil, freedom and control."
