Whitley Strieber’s School of “No Pain No Gain”: Why Applying Stress to Accelerate Evolution Is Not a Good Idea
Strieber is not offering this description as an example of being “evolved” through trauma. He merely includes it as a preamble to the remarkable statement that follows it.
“Pain” is the story Whitley Strieber was working on in December 1985, when the memories of his alleged alien encounters first began to surface.
