Gober’s latest book explores the phenomenon of extraterrestrial life. Not only are humans not alone in the universe, he asserts; we exist in a multispecies environment teeming with alien life that our eyes cannot perceive. Citing near-death experiences, UFO sightings, and more, An End to Upside Down Contact (Waterside Productions) makes the case that it’s time to embrace our species’ enduring habit of sensing intelligent life beyond our borders — because the future of civilization may be at stake.
