Summary

In Sekret Machines: Gods, the cultural, historical, and religious aspects of mankind's encounters with UFOs were explained by Open Mind's 2017 UFO Researcher of the Year and To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science founder Tom DeLonge with renowned research author Peter Levenda.

Here, they continue their revelatory work in a thoroughly-researched exposé that seeks to solve the scientific mysteries of the unidentified aerial phenomenon, the UFO experiencers whose lives were changed forever, and what it means for all mankind. To this end, they have divided their study into three fields of inquiry: genetics and the ET hypothesis, consciousness, and human-machine symbiosis.

In Sekret Machines: Man, DeLonge and Levenda go beyond the lies fed to the public for decades - using unsealed confidential records, expert analysis, and eyewitness testimony from scientists, civilians, military personnel, researchers, and UFO experiencers to reveal the wide-ranging influence that UFO forces have had upon our past, continue to exert on our present, and may hold for our future.

Really good book.

I read the first in t he series, I did not totally get it, seemed to try to tell to much, and I got lost a tad..
Book 2 is 100% better, clear, concise, with better direction. I totally get it. The books at the very least makes you challenge many assumptions you have, and shows how little we really know. Can you really blame governments for non disclosure? 99.99999% of them don't know what's happening, and the handful that do know a little, realize they know next to nothing, hence the "the phenomena represents no danger to national security mantra" . While disclosure will eventually happen with a event, that cannot be covered up globally. You will then get the witch hunt of all time begin,

Excellent

The best of the series so far. It really covers a lot of topics and discusses many theories that I had never thought about before. It also covers many areas of science such as quantum physics and the investigation of consciousness itself and summarizes many theories in this area. I'm already looking forward to the next book in the series.

Another great listen.

I was expecting a bit more though for some reason I guess. They are supposedly doing some sort of disclosure with these, the first one was good. I just feel like nothing new is really being said. I cannot be all that dissatisfied with what TTSA has got done in the last couple years, so I’ll just keep hoping we get something definitive at some point I guess.

Legendary & Belongs abduction intro.

The 2nd book in the trilogy builts on the ancient myths cover in the previous book, and ventures head-on into the abduction phenomena. Stills is a good read, even if you're familiar with the Works of Harvard professor of Psychiatry Dr John Mack, Budd Hopkins, David Jacobs & Whitley Strieber, etc. Briely touches the DNA subject which presents more questions than answers in regards to being "Artificially created with starts & stops sequences " also introduces Francis Cricket/Leslie Orgel concept of "Directed Parspemia" for life to be plausibly seeded on Earth (must see movie "Prometheus" for an example)
And acknowledge the obvious elephant in the room which is that...God, Angels, Demons, Ghosts, Spirits, Skinwalkers, Orbs of light, Jinns, Genies, Succubus, Incubus, Greys, Reptilians, AI Ebe's, mediumship-channeling, demonic possessions, shamanic trance states, and Alien abduction are all synonymous of the same phenomena described through the eyes of the beholder. This doesn't mean that they are God, nor doesn't negate the existence of the universal essence we call God, but that they are entities with agendas consisting mostly of the "divide and conquer strategy" through race, religion, political affiliation, gangs, and even sporting events, etc.
The fundamental question is how to combat it, through conventional warfare or by raising our vibrations through connecting to The Higher consciousness!!!(The universal Mind/God).
An excellent point raised by the authors of this book is to question, where does our conciousness originates from?, and is it our brain a receiver & transmitter of consciousness? which doesn't reside solely in the molecular structure of Neurons in the brain. Neurons which are the equivalent of billions of the most cutting edge quantum computers. And would that mean that AI rather than animals are closer to humans in the ability to develop a conciousness?, or both.
It's a good read, and I recommend it. And I'm looking forward the last book of this trilogy.

Also for conciousness material read the works of Paul Selig, MFA from Yale University;
-Mastery Trilogy 1 (I am the word, book of love, book of knowing)
-Mastery Trilogy 2 (book of mastery, book of truth, book of freedom)
-Last trilogy(Beyond the known, Alchemy)

Also The Course in Miracles by Helen Schucman Ph.D (Columbia University professor of
clinical psychology)

And The Law of One by RA a also a channel book by Carla Ruekert (Master's degree in Library Arts).

Note and updated to the The New York Times article by Leslie Kean in 2017 which released Tom Delonge leaked 3 videos FLIR or TIC TAC shape UAP/UFOS, GIMBAL which rotates & GOFAST which subsequently in 2020 were acknowledged by the DoD to be real, and also was acknowledged by the Pentagon in 2021 the latest video from the USS Russell of a Triangular shape UAP/UFOS ... in June 2021 the Senate intelligence Committe got the 70 pages report (UFO\UAP 2004-2021 only)....alongeside (the 9 pages) unclassified version released info from the Pentagon...we got validation of the existence of the phenomena now call UAP's and it will be scientifically study and officially reported by All intelligence agencies and the DoD...to be continue...

AI God, all brain, no soul

While this is all interesting and worth the time to listen, I feel like it is a little biased towards AI God/ humans as a machine. It basically leaves out the possibility of the soul and puts it all on the brain. I think they could have offered more.

Patronizing garbage

One of the worst books ever written on the subject, from the most condescending, patronizing perspective one can imagine. Filled with grand visions of nothing, going nowhere, this was less a book than a series of questions and assertions missing any semblance of rational connective tissue. You’re better off watching DeLonge ramble on Rogan.

Interesting ideas and topics poorly executed

How can you go wrong with aliens and artificial intelligence? Apparently get Tom Delonge to write it, and then hire a droning, boring narrator to read it, but I fell asleep a couple of times, so l might have missed the good parts.
