6. Why They
Why don't the UFOs land on the White House lawn?
Why don't the alien
occupants step out and say "Take me to your leader"?
Why don't they
make formal contact?
These obvious questions, which people
have posed for years, deserve thoughtful consideration. Yet the
questions themselves are problematic because they are based on the
assumption that the aliens want to make themselves known, establish
contact with humans, and speak to our leaders. This assumption is
incorrect. The evidence surrounding the UFO and abduction phenomenon
strongly points, not to revelation, but to concealment as the goal.
Why should the aliens want to keep the UFO and abduction phenomenon
a secret? Secrecy benefits the aliens and befuddles the humans. It
hides the facts and fuels endless speculations. It is responsible
for prolonged and rancorous debate between proponents and debunkers
over the phenomenon's legitimacy. Secrecy also has a powerful and
negative influence on abductees. It causes them and the public to
question their sanity. Without secrecy there would be no UFO and
Yet millions of people around the world have observed UFOs. Numerous
photographs, motion pictures, and videos of UFOs have stood the test
of scientific analysis. Radar traces have been part of the hard
evidence for many years. How can we reconcile all the overt evidence
with a policy of secrecy?
Ultimately, UFO sightings do not compromise secrecy. It is
impossible to base an analysis of aliens' motivations and goals on
the sightings of UFOs and, occasionally, their occupants. We must
conclude, then, that the aliens actively dictate the terms upon
which we can study them. They have chosen not to land on the White
House lawn. They have chosen not to make overt "contact."
In the 1960s, the great French UFO
researcher Aime Michel succinctly labeled this "The Problem of Noncontact."
The Early Hypotheses: 1940s to 1960s
A sighting—any sighting—would seem to be inconsistent with a policy
of secrecy. If the technologically superior aliens wish to keep
their secret, one could argue, they would prevent witnesses from
seeing them. But beginning in the late 1940s, researchers struggled
with the puzzle of why UFOs did not make formal contact. They
offered several hypotheses about noncontact. The first theories
focused on human hostility, ethical noninterference, reconnaissance,
and various combinations of these three.
The "hostile humans" hypothesis suggested that UFOs were clandestine
because they feared human aggression. Instances of jet fighter
pilots encountering UFOs in the air and either wanting to fire upon
them or actually shooting at them gave credence to the idea that
aliens believed we were a hostile species who posed a threat to
The "hostile humans" hypothesis was particularly in vogue when
America was involved with the military mindset of World War II, the
Korean conflict, and the Cold War, and was influenced by
then-current anthropological ideas that man was an innately
aggressive, warlike animal. Humankind's first reaction to
extraterrestrial visitation, at least on an institutional level,
would be to use military force to control or destroy the UFOs. By
maintaining its distance, an advanced, and presumably peaceful,
alien species would avoid conflict.
As Air Force analyst James Lipp said in
"It is hard to believe that any
technologically accomplished race would come here, flaunt its
ability in mysterious ways and then simply go away." Lipp
suggested that "the lack of purpose apparent in the various
episodes is also puzzling. Only one motive can be assigned; that
the spacemen are 'feeling out' our defenses without wanting to
This theory first received popular
expression in the 1951 motion picture The Day the Earth Stood Still,
in which a UFO lands near the White House and the U.S. military,
armed with guns and tanks, immediately surrounds it. A trigger-happy
soldier shoots and wounds an extraterrestrial after he emerges from
the flying saucer. When the alien escapes, he completes his mission
on Earth only by living incognito with humans. Avoiding overt
contact was seen as a preventive reaction to our inherent hostility.
Early researchers also put forward the "reconnaissance" explanation
for alien secrecy. Pioneer UFO researcher Donald Keyhoe, in his 1950
Flying Saucers Are Real, advanced the idea that "the earth has been
under periodic observation from another planet, or other planets for
at least two centuries."
These inspections are,
"part of a long-range survey and
will continue indefinitely. No immediate attempt to contact the
earth seems evident. There may be some unknown block to making
contact, but it is more probable that the spacemen's plans are
According to Keyhoe, if we were
exploring another planet, we would not make contact until our
observations were complete:
"If we were to find that the other
species was hostile or belligerent, then we would go on to the next
Building upon Keyhoe's theory, Canadian UFO investigator
Smith speculated in 1953 that when UFO occupants discover that we
are a warlike people, they will depart because we are "too primitive
by their standards." For Smith and other researchers, UFO occupants
were anthropologists practicing a policy of noninterference when
they encountered a previously undiscovered tribal society. According
to this theory, aliens had a moral responsibility to protect
humanity from the problems that interspecies contact could bring.
However, Smith suggested to Keyhoe that the aliens would directly
intervene if humans became too aggressive:
Suppose, for instance, our pilots
discovered a lost civilization down in the Amazon country. We'd
investigate from the air to see how advanced they were before
risking direct contact. If they were a century or two behind us
with sectional wars going on, we'd possibly leave them
alone—unless they had something we wanted badly. But they might
be only a decade or two behind us. In that event we'd at least
keep a close eye on them in the future. ... But if for any
reason they were a danger to the rest of the world, we'd have to
bring them under control, by reason—or threat of force.4
Aime Michel combined the "hostile
humans" and noninterference hypotheses in 1956 when he suggested
that UFO occupants did not contact us because it might be physically
dangerous for them. Michel said that humans are a violent people
"considering our bloody past, would
they not be justified in thinking that their best protection is
an 'iron curtain'?"
But, explained Michel, the aliens also
had a selfish reason for non-contact:
"Contact would be a bad bargain for
them. It would teach us far more than it would teach them and in
every way reduce their margin of superiority over us. And
supposing we found out the secret of their machines? Would we
use the knowledge as prudently as they have done?"
Still, Michel thought that contact might
"when contact does more good than
harm."5 He noted with approval that they had "respect for
others" because they had "never once attempted to interfere in
Aime Michel later suggested that the
aliens had deliberately avoided overt contact because of the havoc
it would wreak upon human institutions and life—and aliens would
supplant us in a Darwinian survival-of-the-fittest model.7
could, however, take place without our knowledge, said Michel,
because the aliens are so superior and clandestine that "we will be
as incapable of detecting their activity or of analyzing their
motives as a mouse is of reading a book."8
In the 1950s, a very divisive element entered the debate over the
meaning of noncontact—the infamous contactees. These people claimed
that they were having continuing interactions with friendly "Space
Brothers." They met with aliens at various places, including
restaurants, bus terminals, and isolated areas. This was contact.
And although most serious UFO
researchers quickly exposed the contactees as frauds, legions of
people believed their yarns and concluded that aliens had already
made contact and therefore the debate over the secret nature of the
UFO phenomenon was moot.9 The contactees lost their popularity by
the 1960s, but ever since, debunkers and skeptics have pointed to
them as examples of how UFO proponents can be gullible.
In the 1960s, the "hostile humans" hypothesis declined, but the
reconnaissance hypothesis remained strong. Writing in 1962, Coral Lorenzen, codirector of the Aerial Phenomena Research Organization,
made the reconnaissance hypothesis part of the satellite program.
She said that UFOs were subjecting Earth
"a geographical, ecological, and
biological survey accompanied by a military reconnaissance of
the whole world's terrestrial defenses."
According to Lorenzen this activity had
increased since the first Earth-orbiting satellite, Sputnik, in
"succeeding space probes launched by men seem to have
generated a closer scrutiny of earth by our 'visitors,' if indeed
they are real."10
Researchers Richard Hall, Ted Bloecher, and
Isabel Davis of the
National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena suggested in
1969 that there was no formal contact because the aliens did not
understand our civilization.
"Even in the simple matter of
physical approach to human beings, the behavior of UFOs is above
all contradictory; they seem to display a mixture of caution and
UFOs did not contact humans because "the
extraterrestrials ... may still be as baffled about our behavior and
motives as we continue to be about theirs."11
However, a real contradiction existed between the hypotheses and the
daily events. Thousands of people were sighting UFOs; investigators
were collecting thousands of reports of high-level sightings,
low-level sightings, and even landed UFOs; and there was an increase
in the number of "occupant" reports, in which witnesses said they
saw aliens in or near a UFO. The
Barney and Betty Hill case, in the
early 1960s, also helped bolster the argument that UFOs were making
Did this activity mean that UFOs were displaying themselves on
What was the purpose?
The Later Hypotheses: 1970s to 1990s
By the 1970s, some researchers began to theorize that UFOs were
revealing themselves slowly so that humans could get accustomed to
the idea of alien visitation. Presumably, sudden revelation would be
enormously upsetting to all human institutions. Fear, depression,
and despair would follow. Suicides would probably rise. Widespread
panic, institutional disintegration, governmental crisis, and other
forms of catastrophe could follow, leading to societal chaos and
anarchy. Gradual revelation would "cushion the blow" of contact and
reduce disruption; the aliens did not want to shock humans by
showing themselves too abruptly.
Therefore, the aliens allowed humans to sight UFOs as a societal
"shock absorber." Researchers hypothesized that sightings allowed us
to achieve a higher form of awareness about aliens in a constantly
controlled manner, much like a thermostat controlling temperature.
Part of the alien design was to allow the idea of UFOs as
extraterrestrial objects to creep into popular culture. Thus,
researchers theorized, the aliens played us like a fiddle for our
own good while they carefully monitored society's knowledge of their
Jacques Vallee expounded a version of this theory in
The Invisible College (1975). The random appearance and
disappearances of single UFOs and waves of sightings held special
significance for Vallee.
These UFO manifestations were part of a
control system designed by the aliens to,
"stimulate the relationship between
man's consciousness needs and the evolving complexities of the
world which he must understand."
This would lead to what Vallee called "a
new cosmic behavior."12
For Vallee, the UFO phenomenon resided somewhere between the
physical and psychic worlds. It was linked to man's consciousness
and was called forth to condition humanity to a shift in world view,
presumably about the universe and man's place within it.13
appearances and disappearances were part of a human conditioning
regimen, although Vallee was vague about the purpose of the
Similar theories developed. One popular idea among Jungian UFO
researchers was that UFOs were manifestations of an alternative
reality that existed between the psychic and the objective.
Individual people psychically called these forms into being from an
"imaginal" realm. While they were here they were "real" and
objective, but they vanished into the other realm.14
The growing number of "occupant" sightings in the late 1970s and
early 1980s added support to the "psychic realm" hypotheses. The
occupants seemed to behave in incomprehensible ways. They avoided
contact, failed to communicate, seemed to inspect people who stood
paralyzed, and then disappeared into their UFOs and flew off.
Witnesses reported UFOs swooping down upon their cars and pacing or
"chasing" them. Other reports described objects simply materializing
in front of witnesses and then disappearing without the observer
seeing them fly away.
The celebrated UFO researcher and astronomer J. Allen Hynek wrestled
with the problems of non-contact and the seemingly absurd manner in
which UFOs behaved. When the UFOs initiated what appeared to be a
form of contact—being seen from time to time, buzzing cars and
airplanes, scaring people, not giving humans a "gesture of good
will"— it made no sense.
Why would UFOs and their occupants
exhibit such bizarre behavior?
Hynek speculated that UFOs dwelled in a parallel universe or
dimension and "popped" through to Earth. Perhaps they came on the
"astral plane" in which they could "will" themselves to be on Earth.
Whatever the case, the ease with which they came to Earth suggested
that UFOs could do what they wanted without having to make formal
Biologist and UFO researcher Frank Salisbury summed up
these attitudes in 1974 by saying,
"The extraterrestrials might
simply have their reasons for not wanting to make formal contact,
and ... we, in this stage of our development, simply cannot fathom
Although theories have abounded—Earth as a refueling station for
UFOS traveling to other places, Earth as a tourist spot for aliens
to gaze upon—by the late 1980s most researchers had given up
speculating about non-contact. Not enough evidence existed upon which
to base a viable hypothesis.
Then in the early 1990s, John Mack revived the debate by postulating
that the purpose of non-contact was,
"to invite, to remind, to permeate
our culture from the bottom up as well as the top down, and to
open our consciousness in a way that avoids a conclusion that is
different from the ways we traditionally require."
Humans must look for proof of the
existence of aliens in ways other than the purely rational.
"It is for us to embrace the reality
of the phenomenon and to take a step forward appreciating that
we live in a universe different from the one in which we have
been taught to believe."17
I believe these prior hypotheses to be
inadequate to explain the UFO phenomenon. As with most speculation
about the phenomenon, researchers have based their hypotheses about
non-contact on the most circumstantial evidence. Furthermore, most
theories have placed non-contact within a human-centered context:
Aliens either fear humans or want to help them. Like Ptolemy, who
assumed that Earth was the center of the solar system, most
researchers have assumed that aliens have come to Earth because they
realize the uniqueness and importance of humans.
This is what the Judeo-Christian
Indeed, most traditional theories of formal contact have been rooted
in Judeo-Christian anthropomorphism. These theories have generally
assumed that an alien species would have a strong interest in the
complex thought processes, civilization, and technology of humans.
Aliens would respect us and share their scientific and technological
knowledge with us; humans would join with aliens into a community of
These assumptions have been based not on
evidence but on the ideas and thought processes derived from the
society and culture in which its adherents live.
Current Hypotheses and Abductions
The abduction phenomenon has always been more secretive than the
UFO-sighting phenomenon. Researchers investigated UFO sightings for
fourteen years before they came upon an abduction case. Another
twenty-five years elapsed before they understood that abductions
were enormously widespread and the central focus of the UFO
When researchers first began to investigate abductions, they assumed
that an abduction was a one-time, adult-onset event. Abductions
suggested curiosity rather than manipulation on the part of the
aliens. As abductees recalled fragments of events, researchers
decided that aliens were "studying" or "experimenting" on people.
The secretive aliens were finished with their examination of Earth's
flora and fauna and had turned their attention to studying humans.
As the number of abduction reports grew, many researchers adopted
the ethical noninterference argument and assumed that aliens
conducted their study in secret in order not to disrupt the
subject's life. Memories of an abduction could be so traumatic that
they would negatively interfere with the abductee's psychological
well-being. In addition, researchers assumed the aliens gave
abductees posthypnotic suggestions not to remember an event so that
it would be buried in the subject's unconscious.
Other researchers hypothesized that an abductee would not remember
an abduction because the natural defenses of the human brain
repressed the traumatic event. The human mind could not cope with
the impossibility and terror of an alien abduction; rather than
confronting the horrendous events, the mind buried the memories deep
within it and only allowed tiny pieces to "bleed" through.
Investigators had to use hypnosis to recover these repressed
The argument that aliens operate in secrecy in order not to disrupt
abductees' lives might have merit were it not for the fact that the
disruption in their lives is enormous even without conscious
recollection of their abduction experiences. If the aliens were
indeed concerned about not causing personal disruption, they would
not abduct people in the first place, or, at the very least, not so
often over the course of their lives.
The hypotheses that abductees repress memories to cope with the
trauma of an abduction also have evidential problems. The mechanisms
of traumatic memory repression are highly debatable, and even if the
hypothesis is true, the frequency of abductions militates against
repression in every case. There are many abduction events that are
not traumatic and they, too, are not remembered. Furthermore,
researchers have uncovered no reports of posthypnotic procedures
that aliens might use to "bury" the abduction event. If these
procedures existed, researchers would be seeing them during every
Although the exact neurology is not known, it is most likely that
the aliens store the abduction events directly in the abductee's
long-term memory system, bypassing short-term memory and preventing
the triggering mechanism that allows for its reconstitution.
Hypnosis restores the trigger that allows the memories to come
Reshma Kamal was told that the reason the aliens do not
"erase" the memories altogether is that there are aspects of them
that must be retained by abductees for future reference. Thus, the
memories are intact, but inaccessible through normal recall.19
For years, the abduction phenomenon has lain hidden under layers of
direct and indirect protection—societal beliefs, scientific
hostility, incomplete conscious recall, confabulation in
hypnotically recalled testimony, and alien-induced memory
manipulation. Unlike sightings of UFOs, there are no radar traces,
photographs, films, or videotapes.
The evidence is primarily anecdotal,
with an occasional artifact. Only one thing is certain: Whatever the
reason for it, the alien secrecy strategy has been enormously
successful. Most people who have had a lifetime of abduction
experiences remain unaware of what has happened to them.
They would deny as lunacy any suggestion
that they were involved with the abduction phenomenon, even if they
had been abducted just hours before.
Methods of Protecting Secrecy
The starting point of secrecy is to prevent the abductee from
remembering what happened, a strategy that is more comprehensive
than just inculcating amnesia.
First, all those near the abduction
event must not be aware of what is happening. Therefore, the aliens
routinely immobilize, render unconscious, or perceptually alter
potential witnesses to the abduction. In effect, they "switch off"
proximate people so that they cannot interfere in the event.
Husbands, wives, friends, and bystanders—all are made unaware of the
Second, the abductee is separated from a group. For example, if he
is at a picnic, he will "take a walk" and not return for an hour and
a half; when he returns, he explains vaguely that he "lost track of
time," and his friends ignore the incident. Thus, the aliens
maintain secrecy while abducting someone from a large group of
Third, to render memory recall more difficult, the aliens cloud what
memory the abductee has by injecting confusing and "false" memories
into his mind. For example, if the person is abducted from bed, he
might remember an unusually vivid and realistic "dream." Other
abductions might produce "screen" memories of animals staring at the
abductee—owls, deer, monkeys, racoons. An abductee might think he
saw an "angel," a "devil," or a deceased relative standing by his
bed. Society provides a menu of explanations, and the abductees pick
and choose depending on their background and culture.
Secrecy extends to the physical aspect of the abduction, and
"cloaking" the removal of an abductee is an integral part of it.
When a person is abducted from his normal environment, he reports
that he floated directly out of a closed window, or through the
wall, or through the ceiling and roof and up into a waiting UFO. Yet
people on the outside rarely see this because the aliens somehow
render themselves, the abductees, and the UFO "unseeable" during
Abductions often take place from automobiles, and the aliens
institute secrecy in this situation as well. When a person is
driving, the aliens cause the car to stop so that the abductee can
walk to a UFO waiting by the side of the road (sometimes the
abductee floats directly through the windshield). Typically, the
aliens wait until there are no other cars on the road, or they
compel the abductee to drive down a deserted road and wait for the
Often, the aliens take the car with the
abductee, resolving the problem of having an abandoned vehicle on
the side of the road.
Threats to Secrecy
Yet the secrecy policy has not been implemented perfectly. The
aliens apparently cannot maintain total secrecy. Witnesses see UFOs.
Traces of their existence have been left behind in the form of marks
on the ground and physical effects upon the environment. Many
abductees have conscious memories of their experiences. Abductees
are aware of "missing time." They have unexplainable scars and other
physical "clues." In addition to these symptoms of abduction
activity, the secrecy policy has many other vulnerabilities.
The first vulnerable point is the mechanical device implanted in
many abductees. Walking around with an implant can be risky. The
monitoring system that alerts aliens to attempts to remove the
implant only works in a non-emergency situation. To my knowledge, on
at least twenty occasions abductees who are unaware of their
abduction experiences have either sneezed out an implant or
discharged it in another way.
Potentially, the discharge can
The aliens have been "lucky" that this
has not been the case; the puzzled and unaware abductees have
assumed that they accidentally acquired the object ("The wind must
have blown it into my nose"). Or an abductee might feel compelled to
discard the object. For example, a young woman discharged a two-inch
yellow plastic-like object vaginally, which, of course shocked and
frightened her. She "knew" that she had to get rid of the object
immediately. She flushed it down the toilet, and then she flushed
the toilet three more times to make sure that it had disappeared.
Then she felt better.
Not being taped on video equipment or photographed is essential to
maintain the aliens' secrecy. They are extremely careful to make
sure that the abductee turns off photographic detection equipment
before an abduction. If necessary, they can cause a power failure in
the house or neighborhood to prevent the detection equipment from
They do not want to be seen.
Protecting the Fetus
The aliens' single most significant area of vulnerability—the one
that has, by far, the greatest impact on maintaining secrecy—is the
implantation of a gestating fetus. Because producing offspring is a
primary goal of abductions, successful fetal implantation and
extraction are critical. Virtually all female abductees have had
embryos implanted, and after a period of weeks or months the fetus
has been removed. Without the fetal implantation-extraction phase of
the program, the entire abduction phenomenon would be crippled, if
not rendered inoperative. It is absolutely essential that the fetus
is protected from abortion during this phase.
Fetal implantation is precisely where security is most likely to be
compromised. Once a woman has been impregnated, she continues with
her normal life but she is carrying the fetus. Although few female
abductees are aware of the fetus, they—and not the aliens— are in
control of it and the pregnancy. For the aliens, this crucial shift
in control comes at a perilous time. If the woman realizes she is
carrying a fetus inserted into her by the aliens, she can elect to
terminate the pregnancy. Indeed, many female abductees have sought
Alien monitoring generally reveals a
planned abortion so that the fetus can be removed beforehand, but
other protective methods must also be implemented.
Deceiving the woman by implanting an extrauterine gestational unit
is another way to secure protection for the fetus. The unit does not
change the shape, size, or color of the uterus and often does not
provoke a characteristic hormonal reaction. Therefore, the abductee
has little indication that she is pregnant and takes no action to
end the pregnancy.
Another subterfuge is to allow the sexually active woman to think
she is pregnant. There is always the real possibility that the
pregnancy is a normal outcome of sexual relations even though the
couple might have used contraception. If the woman elects to
terminate the pregnancy, usually there is enough time between the
decision and the necessary testing for the aliens to remove the
fetus. In most cases, by the time the woman arrives for the
abortion, the fetus is gone. Generally, the physician's diagnosis is
pseudocyesis, spontaneous abortion, absorption, or secondary
The woman makes no overt connection
between the "disappearance" of the fetus and the abduction
Reasons for Secrecy
The critical question still remains: Why are the aliens so
The answer can be found in the motives and purposes of
the Breeding Program. Because the fetus must be protected, the most
effective method to prevent the abductee from knowing about the
pregnancy is to keep it secret from her.
In response to Lucy Sanders's questions one alien was uncharacteristically forthcoming. He told her:
We have our own interest because we
are removing your ova and using it for our own genetic purposes.
We know this will be very disturbing to the human female because
she is a reproductive organ between the two of the species, she
is the host for reproduction, and we only remove those that we
When Lucy asked him what that meant, he
We sometimes use the female human as
a host for genetic reproductive purposes. We feel that if the
female of the species knows that her body is being used as a
host, she may wish to remove what she feels isn't hers. So we
put a very strong blank [block] on her memory process so that
she has no idea that the implant has been put there. We will do
the same for you when we, as we have in the past, implant you.
We feel that it is better for the female if we do not leave the
implant in. We are able to bring the fetus to term using our own
females, but the first, within the first trimester it must be
removed so that the female human does not realize she is host to
We find psychologically, within the first trimester, if the
female host is unaware of the implant, she goes about her normal
routine, and it does not have a debilitating effect on the
fetus. Upon removal, we put another blank on the female human
host so that in the future we can do this same procedure and she
will be accustomed to it.20
Beyond protecting the fetus, there are
other reasons for secrecy. If abductions are, as all the evidence
clearly indicates, an intergenerational phenomenon in which the
children of abductees are themselves abductees, then one of the
aliens' goals is the generation of more abductees.
Are all children of abductees incorporated into the phenomenon? The
evidence suggests that the answer is "yes." If an abductee has
children with a nonabductee, the chances are that all their
descendants will be abductees. This means that through normal
population increase, divorce, remarriage, and so on, the abductee
population will increase quickly throughout the generations. When
those children grow and marry and have children of their own, all of
their children, whether they marry an abductee or non-abductee, will
To protect the intergenerational nature of the Breeding Program, it
must be kept secret from the abductees so they will continue to have
children. If the abductees knew that the program was
inter-generational, they might elect not to have children. This
would bring a critical part of the program to a halt, which the
aliens cannot allow.
The final reason for secrecy is to expand the Breeding Program. To
integrate laterally in society, the aliens must make sure that
abductees mate with non-abductees and produce abductee children. If
abductees were aware of the program, they might decide not to have
children at all or to mate only with other abductees. Thus, the
number of childbearing unions between abductees and non-abductees
would decline, endangering the progress of the Breeding Program.
The Breeding Program must be kept secret, not only from women, but
also from men and society as a whole.
When Claudia Negron was six
years old, a young hybrid girl explained at least part of the
program to her.
I ask her why they're doing this.
She says it's for the good of everybody and that they have to do
this. It's very important and that I'm not the only one. There
are many... . And one day I will know what it's all about, but
not just yet. Because if they tell people what it's all about,
then their project is ruined. So they have to keep it a secret
for now. I ask her what kind of a project is it. She says to
make a better world, to make a better place.21
It could be argued that since we have
evidence of the Breeding Program, secrecy has effectively been
But this is not the case.
The aliens' wall of secrecy
will only be penetrated when many people within our society, perhaps
the majority, fully realize what has been happening to them and
understand the implications for them and their descendants. After
fifty years of public awareness of UFO sightings and abductions, the
debate continues about whether the phenomenon is "real," and the
scientific community refuses to study it.
Thus, at this point in time, the aliens' policy of secrecy has been
and continues to be enormously successful, despite the millions of
UFO sightings and abduction reports.
The vast majority of abductees have the
memories of their experiences locked in their minds, entwined within
a labyrinth of dreams, confabulation, false memories, and induced
images—exactly where the aliens want them to be. And if abductees
recover these experiences, they endure societal strictures,
ridicule, disbelief, and condescension.
Secrecy is not necessary to protect society from the "shock" of
revelation of "contact." Nor is it necessary to protect the
individual's life from disruption. Secrecy is necessary to protect
the alien Breeding Program. It is a defensive measure, not against
the hostility of violent and frightened humans, but against the
hostility of a host population who would object to being the victims
of a widespread program of physiological exploitation.
Now we can understand why the aliens will not land on the White
House lawn. If they were to do so, the reasons they have come to
Earth might be discovered, and they might not be able to continue
with their Breeding Program. Most of the past secrecy theories have
assumed the aliens concealed themselves to hide their existence. It
is now clear that the primary reason for secrecy is to keep their
activities hidden and therefore they must keep their existence a
Because it is covert, the abduction phenomenon that is essential to
the Breeding Program has grown to enormous proportions.
And both its purpose and its magnitude
have profoundly disturbing implications for the future.
