There is a particular perception of stability in the actual physical environment that most of us consider for granted. Even so, in the latest realm of UFO abduction literature, the time period ‘physical world’ may possibly have to have some redefinition. UFO abductees have uncovered their environment stretched and distorted in a way that defies present day science. Testimony from abductees now involves levitation, paralysis, telepathy, and startling visions. To overlook these reviews is to disregard the wide amount of money of evidence that appears to be to be mounting from quite a few personalized accounts. To acknowledge these experiences blindly, even so, is to take data whose resource is testimony from hypnosis, imprecise reminiscences, and spontaneous recall. Are abductees definitely levitating out of their beds at night time, floating up to a hovering UFO, and becoming subjected to bodily examinations? Most likely this concern can be answered by on the lookout closer at abductee’s testimony.
In the very last decade, UFO abduction researchers Budd Hopkins and Whitley Strieber have strongly promoted the notion of bodily abductions as a norm for UFO get in touch with with individuals. On the other hand, from a published post in UFO Magazine (Vol. 4, Num. 4), researcher Ann Druffel presented a new point of view on the abduction phenomena. This viewpoint altered the emphasis of an abduction from something bodily to anything inside the brain. Ann Druffel, in her e-book ‘The Tujunga Canyon Contacts’, tells of hypnotic regression of a certain abductee named Emily who ‘learned that if she could handle to transfer even one particular toe or finger, the paralysis broke and the creatures vanished.’ The post goes on to report that Emily could use psychological exertion to wake her roommate and also crack the abduction paralysis. In yet another situation Ms. Druffel notes that the abductee was capable to break out of the ‘contact’ by building a audio or mantra inside herself.
Breaking out of the alleged abduction by shear power of will is just one particular clue of its non physical nature. Are there other individuals? On the lookout at the diversified testimony of abductees, just one gets the feeling of the lack of coincidence from report to report. One particular man or woman stated that she was transported through her apartment wall. Although other individuals experience the abductors choose them ‘by hand’ into ready UFO’s. Whitley Strieber, in his e book ‘Transformation’, writes about his attempts at astral journey and the similarity of that expertise to his abductions. He also notes the strangeness element of abduction stories from his write-up in UFO Journal (Vol 4, Num 2). Strieber writes, ‘Of the 690 narratives sent to me by Communion and Transformation readers, only a number of look to assistance these existing theories of abduction. The vast bulk alternatively explain perceptions and activities far stranger than any reported by mainstream abduction researchers.’ A different UFO researcher, Richard Grossinger, writes of the incapacity of contactees to distinguish in between the concrete or actual and the psychic or hallucinatory. He implies that we may well be working with both stages of fact thereby producing the latest paradox of conflicting abduction testimonies.
Just before the ‘Communion’ and ‘Intruders’ phenomenon, astrophysicist and UFO researcher Jacques Vallee cautioned the conception of UFO’s as becoming one thing really bodily. Vallee’s position is that person and social psychological manipulation of UFO contactees could not be extraterrestrial at all but encounters with an additional actuality. He indicates that the intelligence group worldwide is almost certainly ‘in the dark’ about most elements of the UFO phenomena. On the MJ-12 document he writes, ‘Given the names on the checklist of MJ-12 scientists, however, it would seem to me their function could have experienced an fully distinctive orientation, getting to do with psychological warfare. I scratched the surface area of that problem in ‘Messengers of Deception’, and I received burned mainly because the UFO analysis group was not prepared to even look at that side of the problem’. Now that the verdict is out on the MJ-12 paperwork with Monthly bill Moore’s revelation of planted data, Dr. Vallee’s comments appear much far more powerful.
In his e-book ‘Dimensions’, Dr. Vallee strongly emphasizes the psychological mother nature of UFO encounters. His analysis has revealed that historically, UFO encounters have been perceived to be the common myths of the time time period such as the miracle at Fatima, Portugal in 1917. ‘The gatherings at Fatima require luminous spheres, lights with odd hues, a emotion of ‘heat waves’-all bodily features typically related with UFOs. They also encompass prophecy and a decline of standard consciousness on the part of witnesses – what we have referred to as the psychic ingredient of UFO sightings’ (p 174). Dr. Vallee even indicates that substantially of human heritage may perhaps have been shaped by the psychological results of UFO encounters and that the shape may perhaps have a intent.
Extraterrestrial or not, it appears that abductions by UFOs are considerably far more psychological in character than bodily. Nonetheless the prevalent perception is in actual physical make contact with! Is this what we are intended to consider?
