Excerpt from video clip:
Nick Redfern: “And he said he saw coming towards him, striding towards him with this sort of conspiratorial grin on his face, an identical character to the one he had created for Constantine. And he said he just did not know what to do. He just sat there staring at this figure, who just, as I said, this conspiratorial grin on him and walked past. And, Alan Moore said, it was for all intents and purposes the exact character that he had created but which was not, you know, in the public domain yet…
…Is it possible that the human mind focuses on something so deeply that you externalize it? And the more people who believe in it and spread it further and further, almost like a meme-like state, it then suddenly leaps from the human mind into the real world and becomes independent and self aware…”
Richard Dolan: “Well, I would just say that that whole discussion takes me down a road I would not have ever predicted…”
From an Internet creation and meme to claims of mass sightings and even the cause for attempted murder, The Slenderman made his way into our consciousness about a decade ago. Nick Redfern describes it all to Richard Dolan.
Richard Dolan is one of the world’s leading researchers and writers on the subject of UFOs, and believes that they constitute the greatest mystery of our time. He is the author of two volumes of history, UFOs and the National Security State, both ground-breaking works which together provide the most factually complete and accessible narrative of the UFO subject available anywhere. He also co-authored a speculative book about the future, A.D. After Disclosure, the first-ever analysis not only of how UFO secrecy might end, but of the all-important question: what happens next?
