So I came across a book on Amazon titled "THE PLANET MARS AND ITS INHABITANTS BY EROS URIDES (A MARTIAN)", and so far haven't found any major contradictions with TUB. It has been extremely interesting, so I would like if someone else would glance over it and tell me what they think. But hey, if in the the end it is not truth then it makes a great science fiction story!

Heres the book on Amazon:
The Planet Mars and Its Inhabitants, a psychic revelation https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004UJ7XUM/re ... uwb3SRSJSZ

Interesting reference. At first glance, using the Amazon "see inside" feature, I find a few things that seem to contradict TUB:

"Gravitational pull has been overcome"
"There is no evil"
"All the Mars people have lived on other planets before, except your Earth"

Mars being a material planet in our local system, these statements do not seem to fit TUB.

Greetings,

I don't believe in anything channeled. The author of the book, Eros Urides, is supposed to be a Martian who was channeled by J. L. Kennon, the real author of the book. It is Kennon's "psychic" imagination in print. To be blunt, I think you can safely put this in the trash.

In Friendship,
Rexford

Psychic "revelations" come from the subconscious mind, not external spirits or beings. One of the purposes of the subconscious is to provide meaningful information to the conscious mind -- not necessarily truthful information -- to bolster the conscious with information it can believe, that it wants to hear. That's why most psychic material is benign, insipid, and untrustworthy. Are we told that Jesus relied on psychic leadings? Jesus is our example, not mystics and channelers. Enjoy the story but recognize it as the work of fiction it is.
