RRRGroup: We won’t rehash the abduction phenomenon except to say that the “experience” hasn’t been researched as thoroughly as it should be. For instance, one has to ask why an alien culture (intergalactic, inter-dimensional, subliminally Earthian, or whatever) would resort to interacting with persons who are in a normal state of being (sleeping, in their cars, and otherwise occupied with mundane activity) when there are so many available humans in precarious situations, alone in remote areas, and engaged in activity away from population centers or other humanproximities?An alien society hell-bent on capturing human beings for experimentation or some other reason inscrutable to us have a reservoir of people at their disposal: African or Amazonian tribal members alone in heir milieu, Inuit, Chinese, sub-continent loners, rural strays, vacationers in isolated surroundings, Pacific islanders, and so on.Why pick out persons in a room, often surrounded by others, or in circumstances that preclude secrecy or privacy, even when the atmosphere or ambiance of the surroundings is beclouded by alien hypnosis, drugs, or some other technical/mystical element(s)? The nonsense of the alien encounter is exacerbated by the selection process,which goes out of its way to be overtly intrusive.No one, to our knowledge, has put together a list of missing persons, from remote areas of the globe, who may have been abducted by alien beings; that is, strange UFO activity preceded an account of a person or persons gone missing, never to return, or who have returned but whose accounts were and are dismissed by their immediate society (if any).

Many of the people who believe they have been abducted by aliens are bombarding Susan Clancy with hate e-mails and phone calls. The Harvard researcher, who has spent five years listening to the stories of some 50 abductees, has described her (and their) experiences in a new book to be published in October. Clancy, 36, likes most of these people. "They are definitely not crazy," she says. But they do have "a tendency to fantasize and to hold unusual beliefs and ideas. They believe not only in alien abductions, but also in things like UFOs, ESP, astrology, tarot, channeling, auras, and crystal therapy. They also have in common a rash of disturbing experiences for which they are seeking an explanation. For them, alien abduction is the bestfit." As you might guess, the people behind all that hate mail and the phone calls don't buy that.

They were there, she wasn't, they insist. In her book, "Abducted: How People Come to Believe They Were Kidnapped by Aliens," to be published by the Harvard University Press, Clancy describes a typical reaction. "Can you believe the nerve of that girl (Clancy)," one abductee says. "She comes to me, like, 'Oh, I believe you've been abducted! Let me interview you to learn more.... Oh, what really happened [she says] is sleep paralysis.' Riiight! How the - - does she know? Did it happen to her? There was something in the room that night! I was spinning. I blacked out ... it was terrifying.... I wasn't sleeping. I was taken. I was violated, ripped apart - literally, figuratively, metaphorically, whatever you want tocall it. Does she know what that's like?" Abduction stories are strikingly similar. Victims wake up and find themselves paralyzed, unable to move or cry out for help. They see flashing lights and hear buzzing sounds. Electric sensations zing through their bodies, which may rise up in levitation. Aliens with wrap-around eyes, gray or green skin, lacking hair or noses, approach. The abductee's heart pounds violently. There's lots of probing in the alien ship. Instruments are inserted in their noses, navels, or other orifices. It's painful. Sometimes sexual intercourse occurs.

Those familiar with the near-death phenomenon, particularly the tunnel with a bright light at the end of it and a usually benign figure who comforts the dying person, might find commonality with the UFO abductee tales and other flying saucer encounters over the years. The near-death experience is mystical, and can be dealt with along theological lines, or with the help of William James’ The Varieties of Religious Experiences and more recent tomes such as Raymond Moody’s Life After Life….There are related human events covered in the classic work, Cosmic Consciousness by Richard Maurice Bucke [1901] which pertain, but differsignificantly from the “common” UFO abduction accounts, relating more to the infamous contactee stories of the 1950s.The UFO abduction events can be reviewed in Dr.

John Mack’s book, Abduction - Human Encounters with Aliens? 1994 and a few other books such as Budd Hopkins’ Missing Time [1981], Intruders [1987], and Witnessed [1996].Our point here is to note that the tunnel of light might give a clue to what is going on in the dying episodes and the UFO kidnapping encounters, and this might involve offputting scenarios to some: time-travel or parallel universes.The evanescent element in near-death and UFO abduction incidents relates to the relativity or contrived aspects of time. The tunnel in near-death episodes and the transportmechanism in many UFO abduction accounts (Travis Walton for instance) show either SciFi oriented (or originated) tales or something nearer to recent physics hypotheses about time, singularities, and string-theory.Betty Andreasson, a noted UFO abductee (whose story has been recounted by Ray Fowler and others), co-joins near-death and her “abductions. Andreasson Luca (her full last name now) details this at a web-site which may be accessed at:

The strange history of "alien abduction" began in 1966 with publication of John G Fuller's The Interrupted Journey, about the 1961 encounter in New Hampshire of Betty and Barney Hill. The couple said they had been taken aboard a spacecraft and subjected to detailed anatomical examinations by alien beings. The book was a best-seller, not least because a highly esteemed Boston psychiatrist used the then new technique of regressive hypnosis to uncover the Hills' buried memories. A theorywas advanced that the couple had suffered a hallucination triggered by unconscious guilt about their inter-racial mar riage.

Subsequent similar cases often turned out to be waking dreams, hypnosisinduced fantasies, or merely hoaxes. Since then, alien implants have become a controversial issue in UFO circles. It can be traced back to the 1967 case of Betty Andreasson, of Massachusetts, who said she had been abducted and that a tiny spiked ball had been inserted in her nose. Other cases like this followed in subsequent years. Since 1994, alleged implants have been surgically removed frompeople's bodies but they have been quite dissimilar in character. Of course, a small foreign object, such as a splinter, can enter someone's body unnoticed, during a fall, for example.Is all this just part of an evolving UFO mythology, or is something really going on out there?
