Two audio-recordings of Dr. Mack discussing the abduction phenomena ...
1993.10.10 Alien Abductions: Exploring Possible Meanings in Human Evolution by John E. Mack, M.D.
Published on Jan 30, 2015
An early presentation on alien encounters by Harvard psychiatrist Dr. John Mack at the North Haven, Connecticut "UFO Experience" event hosted by John White in October 10, 1993 (prior to the publication of Mack's first book on the subject of alien encounters). Some of what Dr. Mack discusses in this presentation turned up the following year in Abduction, particularly in Chapter 8.

2000.05.06 Intruders Foundation lecture by John E. Mack, M.D.
Published on Jan 30, 2015
Dr. John Mack at Budd Hopkins' Intruders Foundation conference, New York Hall of Science in Corona, May 6, 2000.
Nick Pope, who spoke at the same event, wrote a summary of Mack's presentation: "Mack wondered why it was, given the volume of data that has been amassed, that the abduction phenomenon wasn’t a bigger story than it is. He saw evidence of an individual and collective cultural resistance to the idea, caused by a 'Western material worldview'. He commented on the arrogance of this belief system, pointing out that no previous culture has ever put itself at the peak of the intelligence hierarchy in the cosmos. Mack explained that given this worldview, alien abductions would represent 'a Narcissistic blow of unimaginable proportions', and went on to say that the ego would do anything to defend itself against such an attack. This defense takes the form of denial. Mack criticized the level of personal attacks within ufology, and also expressed the interesting view that researchers should not be afraid to inject a little humour into their work. He then proceeded to list a hilarious 'top ten reasons why you suspect you’ve been abducted by aliens', which had the audience (abductees included) in fits of laughter. These ranged from 'you went to sleep in Manhattan and woke up in a cornfield in Illinois' through to 'you just realized you’ve accumulated thirty billion frequent flier miles'. One of Mack’s most interesting points was when he asked what happens when reliable witnesses aren’t believed. Citing the examples of parent/child and teacher/student relationships, Mack speculated that the whole basis of our social structure would be in danger of collapse if trust is absent from these most fundamental relationships. This thought-provoking comment certainly poses some interesting questions with regard to the consistent, detailed and cross-cultural testimony of thousands of abductees from all around the world."
