The Final Grey or Nay

Originally when I wrote my first post; I had a fascination with the unknown and how so many things are possible and what if?   But on the other hand; I haven’t been abducted by aliens……or at least I don’t think I have.  But I definitely can’t recall a time of seeing a grey alien or being abducted by one.  So maybe it’s not true.  This was a difficult conspiracy theory to tackle.  Because looking at the evidence in the fact that people all over the world have claimed to have been abducted and seen aliens and there is a lot of powerful evidence to point to that possibility.  On the other hand, there is a lot of theories that suggest that it’s relating to psychological episodes, and mental illnesses, false memories, dreams, hallucinations.  People who make it up completely it’s hard to understand what someone else experienced.

It’s mind boggling on both sides of it.  Ufologists and alien believers call it ‘alien abduction’.  Scientists call it ‘alien phenomena’

If these abductions are real and really occurring, and there is and advanced life form out there abducting humans, then that would make me wonder where they came from and what they want.  It is a baffling thing.   If it’s not real, and people really have imagined it through a psychological experience, maybe the human brain is more powerful then we can conceive, maybe it’s capable of things not yet known to science.  On both scales to me it comes down to alien abductions or the human psychic power.

On my first blog I initially couldn’t say I didn’t believe in the possibility, but not that I researched all this information on other possible explanations about psychology (I researched more than what I put in to these blogs) it’s mind boggling.  But now to say that my opinion on the matter has changed I don’t know if it has, it brings be back to square one.  Aliens vs. the mind.  I believe that maybe the truth could be both.  Maybe most cases of alien abductions are of a psychological nature, but maybe there are some that aren’t.  Psychologists, mental health, doctors have come up with cases that are inconclusive, they really just don’t know.  We just don’t know.

So it comes down to one of two things; That aliens exist and we are not alone, and they really are abducting humans for purposes not clear.  Thus is something difficult to prove and also hard to disprove of that possibility because outer space is so vast and there has been so many reported accounts all over the world, even in ancient history there is strange mysteries of ancient aliens, and how these primitive people built such structures we’ll never know, even as far back as the tribal people they’re were cave painting of things that looked like the grey aliens.  Or what if the aliens don’t look like greys.  That’s something that we have personified in society, maybe the aliens would look totally different, maybe they look like us.  On the other hand, if you truly witnessed a flying saucer come down and pick you up and take you into space, your going to know it happened.  But if the human mind was so powerful that it was able to manifest an experience like an alien abduction that you know happened but never happened.  Then the human mind is a powerful mysterious we have yet to unravel, or may never will, or our own evolution? Did we evolve from primates?  Or something else? what if the greys were ‘us’.  Either way the vast uncharted realm of space vs. the vast realm of the mind?

In conclusion; With alien abductions there is only one theory.  With the alien phenomena there are so many theories.  My belief hasn’t changed.  I’m going to go with ackams razor problem solving principle. To go with the one with the less assumptions.  Because if what the scientist say is true, then they would only need one theory to prove it wrong. Not hundreds.  They have so many other explanations so many more assumptions because they don’t know.

So in Grey or Nay, I’ll go with Grey.


Abduction Phenomenon

The term ‘alien abduction’ or ‘abduction phenomenon’ describing real memories of being taken secretly against a person’s own will by non-human entities where they are subjected to complicated physical and psychological procedures.  ‘real’ versus ‘imaginary’. Believer (B) versus skeptic (S).

(S) – Many psychologist and scientists have published books in an attempt to explain alien abductions, they mainly point to the fact that the abductees imagine these abductions predominantly due to mental illnesses.
(B) – Psychologists on the other hand; who have actually examined abductees say that there is no evidence of any possible psychological disorder that could be conceived the abductees are very normal people.

(S) – It is theorized that many abductees fabricate their abduction claims because they lead very boring lives and make up these stories for attention, publicity, and financial gain.
(B) – That could be possible for some, but the majority tend to come forward reluctantly, fearful of ridicule, and trying to avoid media attention. Fabrication has proved to not be an explanation for the majority of the cases.

(B) – The extraterrestrial hypothesis is a real occurring phenomenon where aliens are abducting humans and we have not detected them yet because there technology is so advanced.
Skeptics produce many complex hypothesis’ to explain these occurrences without the need to ever use occkams razor, or the non-parsimonious concepts; like extraterrestrial life forms. These hypothesis’ usually center around known psychological processes that can produce experiences that are very similar to those that are reported in alien abduction cases.

(S) – Alien abductees and believers tend to be predisposed to favor paranormal explanations over scientific explanations.
(B) – Skeptics tend to be predisposed to examine abduction cases for evidence of hoaxing or influence from popular culture sources such as science fiction.

(S) – Mainstream science holds to the idea that alien abduction phenomena is deeply rooted into the human psychology, neurology and culture.
(B) – Abductees, the general public, conspiracy theorists hold to the idea that alien abductions are current happening events that were aliens are abducting humans against there will.

(S) – Mainstream science holds to fact that there is no physical proof.
(B) – Believers point to evidence like; cow mutilations, sightings of Unidentified-flying-objects, abduction hypnosis, crop circles, accounts of alien implants They will say the evidence is there but science will only believe what they choose to believe.

(B) – The abductees claim to have a time of ‘memory loss’ and sometimes they awake in a different part of the house, or even outside in the backyard with all the doors locked in the house. They also will account of visually seeing aliens appearing in the room, and even being lifted into the air.
(S) – Skeptics will account for this ‘time loss’ as sleep paralysis where individuals can produce hallucinations, and even feelings of levitation. Sleep walking can also be the cause of the individual appearing in a different part of the house.

(B) – Believers call it ‘alien abduction’
(S) – Skeptics call it ‘abduction phenomena’

(B) – What do we know of Outer Space?
(S) – What do we know of the Human Mind?

The problem solving principle of Occkam’s razor; states, “In competing hypothesis’, the one with the fewest assumptions should always be selected. Other, more complicated solutions may ultimately prove correct, but in the absence of certainty – the fewer assumptions that are made the better.”

I believe that mainstream science has too many theories and hypothesis’, but for the believers and abductees there is only one theory. Science has still yet to provide evidence to truly say that alien abductions are not occurring, then how can they say it does. The same can be looked at the other way around. To me I would have to go with Occkam’s razor. The one with the least amount of theories makes more sense to me, because how can one know if alien abductions are real or fake? If someone truly experienced it, then they would know of have an idea as to what they experienced. The skeptics come up with all these complex theories of trying to interpret someone else’s experiences, but none about the actual abductions themselves, and whether aliens really are visiting earth.

On the other hand, there is only one theory for the believers, and countless theories for the skeptics. To say that alien abductions are happening or not happening is hard to prove otherwise. In this tangled arena; it might comes down to how many believers compared to how many skeptics are out there as for as whose going to win these arguments; Mainstream science versus pseudoscience?

The skeptic’s viewpoint is that the believers and abductees are influenced by the ‘alien abduction’ culture, and are predisposed to think in paranormal explanations over scientific explanations. On the flip side; the same can be said for the skeptics. That they were influenced by that same ‘alien abduction’ culture but in the opposing factor that they are predisposed to think in scientific explanations over paranormal explanations. So in a culture of ‘alien abductions’ which side are you on?

But one thing that can’t be ignored is the vastness of space and how little we know about it. We might have no idea what could be out there. If life can appear on our planet why would it not appear on the other millions some odd planets in the solar system. You never know what could be out there watching us, and be aware of our existence. If there is an intelligent race out there with that technology to travel across light-years of space, like; Einsteins’ theory of relativity. Maybe they have come to earth, to perform medical experiments for what purpose? To extract genetic and biological information from us? If they did, then what would they be doing with it?. On the other hand, the complexity of the human mind is mysterious, and there is a lot that is not known about it. The fact we only use 10 percent of our brain at a time? What if we use more? What if certain experiences can trigger things in our mind that can cause us to experience a hallucination so powerful like being abducted by aliens?

Other Possible Explanations

  • – There have been many conferences and books published on the subject of psychological theories that have been discussed as a possible attempt to explain these alien abductions.  The most obvious is mental illnesses.
  • There has been documented cases of patients who suffer from schizophrenia who experience “vivid and frightening experiences about space aliens”.  (Barlow, 1995)
  • Stories that are inconsistent and incoherent, and are part of a whole range of strange and confusing thought patterns and behaviours that tend be reflections of there own lives.
  • However, abductees that are examined by psychologists are not diagnosed with schizophrenia or are deemed to be delusional.
  • Furthermore; “Psychiatric examinations and numerous psychological tests have failed to reveal forms of mental illnesses that could, conceivably explain the abduction phenomenon.  (Mack, 1994); According to psychiatrist John Mack – this explanation does not hold up, abductees from a psychiatric point of view, seem to be very normal individuals.
  • Fabrication; another possible explanation.  It’s theorized that these abductees live very boring lives and make up these stories for attention, publicity, and financial gain.
  • That could be possible for some, but the majority tend to come forward reluctantly, fearful of ridicule, and trying to avoid media attention.  As John Mack emphasizes, “the remarkable length that abductees go in order to protect there anonymity.”
  • Studies have also been done on abductees to see if they exhibit high levels of fantasy proneness personality (FPP).  In which an individual spends a lifelong deep and extensive involvement in fantasy.  also referred to as an “overactive imagination”, or “living in a dream world”.
  • People who exhibit the FPP disposition; may have difficulty differentiating between fantasy and reality.  They may experience hallucinations.  Also, other close related psychological constructs are; daydreaming, absorption, and eidetic memory.
  • Daydreaming – a short term detachment from ones own reality is blurred and substituted by a visionary fantasy, usually involving happy and pleasant thoughts, hopes and ambitions, imagined as coming to pass, and having experiences while awake – one a more less common factor, sometimes there has been accounts of daydreaming in a negative way which involves laziness or danger.  Psychologists refer to all forms of daydreaming as a mild-detachment.
  • Absorption – An individual becomes absorbed in his or her own mental imagery.  Absorption can cause both positive and negative emotions.  Also, altered states of consciousness; where there is an experience of focused attention, “objects of absorbed attention acquire an importance and intimacy that are normally reserved for the self and may, therefore, acquire a temporary self-like quality”.
  • Eidetic memory is the ability to recall images in great detail for several minutes;  Like other memories, they are often subjected unintentional alterations.
  • Sleep paralysis is a common neurophysiological explanation. During pre-waking and pre-sleeping states, also referred to as hypnogogic (before falling asleep) and hypnopompic (after waking), a person “may feel paralyzed for a very short time. She might have vivid ‘dreams’ in those moments that take on the shape of reality.” (Jacobs, 1992)
  • One of the most bizarre explanations for the abduction phenomenon is the idea that they stem from a collective unconscious, or cumulative memory, which “embodies certain archetypal memories that are inherent in all human minds.” (Jacobs, 1992)
  • Carl Jung addressed the issue of UFO sightings from this perspective in his book Flying Saucers: A Modern Myth of Things Seen in the Sky, published in 1959. He wondered whether UFOs might not be “materialized psychism – actual physical or paraphysical objects created by the collective unconscious.”
  • There are many psychological possibilities including; fantasies of hysterical individuals, dramatic confabulations from Borderline Personality Disorders, dissociative episodes as with Multiple Personalities, attention-seeking antics of sociopathic characters, intricately-woven psychodynamics of those traumatized in childhood, and the space-age delusions of insecure individuals, influenced by extraterrestrial themes and speculations in all of the media
  •  It has already been documented that hypnotic trance can unintentionally produce false recovered memories of childhood sexual abuse.  Thus, a hypnotist working with some people may unwittingly guide them into developing “memories” of an alien abduction. These “recovered” memories seem as real as memories of an actual event.
  • In essence, the people most likely to believe they were abducted by aliens are those who are predisposed to favor paranormal over scientific explanations. Without conscious awareness they apply their interest in and exposure to stories of extraterrestrials to provide a complex explanation to what most people accept as a normal altered state of consciousness
  • They often have physical and/or emotional symptoms for which they don’t seek common explanations. Some may “recover” memories of being abducted through hypnosis or other forms of guided imagery.   The belief in abduction then tends to become sealed in stone when it fills an otherwise spiritual void.
  • Scientists at NASA say that if there is going to be life on other planets it most likely is going to be microbial life, or bacteria.  The SETI planet finder is scanning the universe looking for radio signals from extraterrestrials, or looking for planets that could house alien life.  But so far there has not been evidence to suggest either but NASA is hoping to discover such things.

All of these points are very powerful in pointing to other possible explanations.  This could for sure account for most people who claim to be abducted.  Then if this is about the human mind, then it is possible because what do we know of the human mind?  There is a lot we don’t know as for as the psychology and as well as evolution of humans in that sense are mysterious.  The psychological aspects of how the human mind works, differs from person to person, there are so many traits and disorders out there that can serve as possibilities to alien abductions.  If it is possible that the brain can manifest a scenario that is so real, that it can make someone think there actually being taken aboard a space craft.  It would be very startling.  Or maybe there are natural phenomena’s on earth that science has yet to discover or can’t perceive.  This could very well be the case for most abductees.  But I feel that more information and scientific study is needed to understand these other possibilities.  It is hard to interpret how someone came to be to cause them to claim that they were abducted, some degree of psychosis must have been involved.  But as far as what is causing this abduction hysteria, we really don’t know.

Evidence in Support of the ‘tall Greys’ and there Reptilian Creators

  • The United States made one or more agreements with a species described as the tall Greys, and has agreed not to interfere with alien operational plans in trade for technology. Agreements made In 1934, 1964, and 1972

  • The large ‘Greys’ use smaller ‘Greys’ which are clones with larger heads. These are the ‘Greys’ that people who are abducted normally see.
  • The ‘Greys’ do abductions to gather biological material humans the our natural world for genetic work for; cloning, DNA enrichment, and human cross-breeding. To produce a new hybrid species that does not have the weaknesses of the Grey species.
  • Initially the Greys were fascinated with both the human individuality and the human emotional spectrum, they can perceive it but they do not understand it.  They do not understand the concept of bonding
  • They seem to have an scientific religion; by dividing this in physical, spiritual and sociological objectives based on the planets they invade and dominate, they have dominated the earth for thousands of years.  They do this by taking out the leaders and replacing them with entities they can control.
  • The Grey aliens are clones created by a ‘parent race’ of aliens which are the Reptilians from the Draco Constellation.
  • They are enslaved by the Reptilians.
  • Because they are clones they are suffering from genetic mutations, diseases, and they have no reproductive organs, so no ability to reproduce, they can only be cloned, but they don’t have the knowledge of the cloning technology created by the Reptilians.
  • Grey Aliens, in exchange for technology, are currently abducting humans so they can prefect
    their own method of cloning.  This cloning technology doesn’t quite mimic the technology used by the Reptilians but it
    enables them to use the human reproductive methods to achieve their goal.
  • How these Gray Aliens achieve this human-cross breeding is by; the Grey aliens abduct humans; carefully subdue them and then the process begins for the extraction of human embryos or male sperm.  Grey Aliens utilize the sperm for the hybrid process.
    where their DNA are mixed, and then the sperms are inserted into the embryos
  • They revolted against the Reptilian, and have set out into the universe looking for a way to solve their problem, they think they have found that on earth.
  • They have been making secret agreements with governments on earth, Grey aliens trade advanced knowledge and technology with these governments in exchange if they allow the Greys to abduct humans to perfect their cloning methods to solve there dying races issue.
  • This cloning technology doesn’t quite mimic the technology used by the Reptilians but it enables them to use the human reproductive methods to achieve their goal.

There has been far over enough witnesses and abductees who all have seen these aliens and what they want to do. The Reptilians seem to have little regard for us as living beings. They think that we are as ugly and repulsive to them as we ever portrayed them to be, and that we, the human race, are “as valuable as weeds.”  The Grays obviously see us to be useful for their own survival.  I believe that Grays are not sinister, but in the process of the Grays producing these human-crossbreeds, then the aliens could look like us and they could be around us and we would never know.  I believe that they are out there?  Or in here?

Alien Abductions

When someone talks about the word ‘alien’, most people think of the grey alien or the ‘greys’.  They have a very thin over-sized head, the grey color is covered with wrinkly, porpoise like skin of different shades of grey.  They have very large almond shape eyes with no eyelids.  It has webbed hands and they can be anywhere from 4 to 6 feet tall. One of the most famous cases of alien abductions was Betty and Barney Hill, they were a husband and wife who noticed strange lights following them home, they claimed to be taken aboard the spacecraft. Afterwards, Betty Hill sought medical attention due to nightmares, after seeing a Boston doctor she was put under hypnosis. Betty talked about how the aliens did medical examinations, and she talked with this alien and it showed her a ‘star map’. She was able to draw this ‘star map’ under hypnosis. Years later a researcher, studied this ‘star map’, and was able to theorize that the ‘grey’ aliens had came from a system known as Zeta Reticuli which are twin stars located about 220 trillion miles from earth. There have many accounts of people who have been abducted who say the these aliens are very friendly, and do not pose a threat to human kind.  That they are just studying humans in a way that scientist’s study species on this our planet.  But other alien abductee’s have claimed that they are not friendly and have evil plans for the human race.  Stories like; a rebellion against from the creator of the ‘greys’ which are the reptilians who actually cloned the ‘greys’ forcing them into slavery, because the greys have no access to the technology that cloned them, so they struck a deal with the U.S Government.  The deal was; that the ‘greys’ exchange technology advanced information to the U.S Government in exchange, if the Government allows the ‘Greys’ to continue to abduct humans for reasons of genetics.  So the ‘Greys’ can use our DNA to help the survival of there own race. I have always been fascinated by the realm of the unknown, and how anything is possible.  I would say that I want to believe it.  How can it be true? Yet how can it not be true?  How could a person know?  So the fact that I don’t know, and how the universe is so vast and uncharted and how there is even so much that we don’t know about ourselves and our own planet, and our own Government.
