Alternate Perceptions Magazine, June 2023
An exclusive interview with Robert Filocco
by: Brent Raynes
Psychotherapist Robert Filocco of Metuchen, New Jersey, has long been interested in UFOs and the paranormal, and how that interest began is quite noteworthy. As a young man of about 8 or 9 years of age back around 1967 he had a series of interactions with mysterious insectoid beings that would appear in his bedroom over about a three-week period. Those initial experiences, over the years, helped draw him into studies of the UFO phenomenon and the paranormal, identifying strongly with the writings of researchers like Jacques Vallee and John Keel, and occultist Rudolf Steiner. I encourage everyone to check out his article Rudolf Steiner, UFOs, and Ahriman that is available in this issue.
