In a 2010 article - “Believing the Strangest Things, Loving the Alien…” - alternative knowledge researcher Andrew Johnson discussed the deeper significance of the songs of David Bowie – particularly the 1980s tune “Loving the Alien”. Andrew Johnson notes: “It is meant to relate to organised religion, but the use of the word “alien” seems rather odd to me. (…) In the light of what we know now about the reality of extra-terrestrials and their appearance in our skies (and on the ground), reviewing the lyrics in some of Bowie’s songs really can make one wonder.”
Further to this, he says: “Generally speaking, it seems there is an effort to muddle up, cover up or discredit those discussing or providing information about higher consciousness or those interacting with it. To me, there seems to be a strong effort to discourage or prevent people from experiencing it - or, when they do, there is then an effort to manage their perception of it (e.g. what is common to all religions? It is the mystical experience. So, “let’s muddle up the mystical experience in a religion so that no one can understand it or fully appreciate it”.)”
