4. What They
Virtually everything that aliens do is in service to their abduction
program. Every seemingly incomprehensible or absurd alien activity
has, upon examination, a logical basis. One by one, these actions
have begun to lose their mystery and reveal their true purposes.
When researchers first learned about the abduction phenomenon, they
generally assumed that, if it was real, its objective was to
investigate humans. That was why aliens abducted humans, examined
them, and then released them. Because this scenario occurred
repeatedly, researchers concluded that the aliens were conducting a
long-term study and benignly collecting data. That belief gave the
public a comfortable feeling because it suggested a scientific, and
therefore nonhostile, intent.
We now know that the abduction phenomenon as a whole is not for the
purpose of research. The evidence suggests that all the alien
procedures serve a reproductive agenda.
And at the heart of the reproductive
agenda is the Breeding Program, in which the aliens collect human
sperm and eggs, incubate fetuses in human hosts to produce
alien-human hybrids, and cause humans to mentally and physically
interact with these hybrids for the purposes of their development.
Extrauterine Gestational Units
A significant component of the Breeding Program is the creation and
nurturing of extrauterine gestational units. It was only after years
of research and hundreds of abduction reports that I understood this
procedure and the reasons for it.
For years women have been telling researchers about mysterious
gynecological procedures that were performed upon them during their
abductions. Some women described "pressure," as if the aliens were
filling the area around their reproductive organs with air, and
their lower abdomens distended giving them a bloated and
uncomfortable feeling. The women often said that their organs were
being "moved around" or displaced in some way, and they got a sense
that the aliens were "enlarging" or creating more space within the
uterine cavity or elsewhere in the pelvic area.
Various abductees have described these gynecological procedures in
Abductee Barbara Archer, in 1988, reported:
And I started to feel pressure.
It was like all this pressure.
Is this a diffuse pressure, or a specific pressure?
But not [specifically] on the left side, or right, or
Middle, inside. Just getting blown up or something, I was
feeling really big. I felt really big.1
This type of procedure occurred many
times to Lucy Sanders:
It's on my right [pelvic] side.
It's making me burn! It's making my insides burn! They're
blowing me up! He's pulling it out now, he's patting my leg
and saying it's all right, that I should calm down now. Holy
What do you think they're doing there, or do they say? I
don't know. It hurt, burned. I feel like I'm blown up. How
do you mean? Blown up. Like a balloon?
Mm-hmm. Now the feeling is going away, but I feel puffy.
He's pushing on my stomach area, pushing it in and moving
his fingers, like this.2
Laura Mills described a similar
What do you think he's doing
down there? I really don't know what the heck he's doing.
Okay. If you had to make a wild
guess, what do you think he's up to?
I know it sounds silly, but they're trying to figure out how
much space I have inside or something.
So they might be measuring, or whatever?
Inside. Like the
uterus or something. I'm not sure.3
Belinda Simpson experienced the same
procedure though she had undergone a hysterectomy some years
It just feels like somebody's
rolling something inside me....
Tell me what you ... sense that
I feel like I'm being blown up.... My side's being swollen up.
It feels like a balloon. This is weird. I feel like somebody's
blowing up my side, this is stupid.... It's real warm, and my
side's blowing up.... Something hurts. I feel like I'm pregnant.
Something is real hard in my stomach, on the side.4
Some abductees have suggested that the
introduction of air into their bodies is similar to a laparoscopy, a
technique physicians employ for the treatment of endometriosis and
other gynecological problems. I suspected that perhaps the bloating
meant the aliens were introducing air as part of the procedure for
But I decided to put these puzzling
cases on the "back burner" and wait for more information to reveal
the purpose of the procedures.
It is noteworthy that hysterectomies are common among abductees.
During my ten years of abduction research, I have worked with a
number of women abductees who have had hysterectomies or suffered
from gynecological problems resulting from their abductions.
Several women told me that the surgeons
who had performed their hysterectomies have commented on the
position of their ovaries, which seemed "pushed" to one side or
"pressed" toward their fallopian tubes. Some women reported
anomalous ovarian scarring, which is consistent with the theory that
the aliens sometimes take eggs directly from the ovaries. Other
women have reported vaginal scarring for which neither they nor
their gynecologists could account. Others have complained of aching,
swelling, and general gynecological pain.
Gynecological pain played an important part in an incident with the
first abductee I placed under hypnosis.
Melissa Bucknell was
twenty-seven years old and intermittently sexually active. In
hypnotic regressions she had talked about having "implants" placed
in her during her abductions. One morning in March 1987, she awoke
with gynecological pain so severe that she was having trouble
sitting and she told me that she was now certain the aliens had put
an "implant" in her. (My own research had shown that implants were
usually placed in the nose or an ear.)
I immediately took her to a
gynecologist, Dr. Daniel Treller, who graciously agreed to see her
on an emergency basis.
Trailer's examination confirmed that Melissa's pelvic area was very
tender and he ordered an ultrasound. The ultrasound team quickly
found an anomaly. At the right side of her right ovary, but not
touching it, was a mass of some sort. It was small, but looked
"organic," and it was not supposed to be there. The bewildered
ultrasound team summoned Treller, who was equally baffled. None of
them had ever seen anything quite like this before. Suspecting an
unusual ectopic pregnancy, Treller ordered a blood test to determine
if Melissa was, in fact, pregnant. It was negative.
Melissa, meanwhile, insisted that this mass was an alien "implant"
and she did not want to remove it or disturb it in any way. She was
extremely stubborn on this point. She did not want to have it
touched and she immediately objected to any suggestions to the
contrary. Finally, much to Melissa's relief, Treller suggested that
she come back in a week to see if the mass had changed or "grown."
When we left the hospital, she said that she never wanted to come
back, and she did not want the implant disturbed, despite the pain
it was causing.
For the next several weeks I tried to persuade Melissa to return for
another ultrasound, but she refused. Finally, a month after the
initial visit, I successfully prevailed upon her. She underwent
another examination and the ultrasound screen showed the space where
the mass had been, but the mass was gone. Dr. Treller was puzzled
and noted that the problem appeared to be "resolving itself."
Melissa was enormously relieved that she
would not have to face having the mass removed. Her case remained a
puzzle for years. I would have to analyze several seemingly
disparate cases to finally develop a logical theory about what had
happened to her.
In March 1992, Lydia Goldman told me about an extraordinary episode.
I had conducted seven sessions with this charming and capable
sixty-year-old woman since 1989, and she had come to realize that
she had been involved with the abduction phenomenon throughout her
In early 1992, Lydia awoke one morning with the distinct feeling
that she was pregnant. That was impossible, not only because of her
age and because she had not engaged in sexual relations, but because
she had undergone a total hysterectomy many years before.
Nevertheless, her breasts began to swell, she retained water, and
she had something akin to morning sickness. She recognized the
symptoms as those she felt when she had been pregnant with her
children. After a few weeks, the right side of her lower abdomen
became slightly distended. Then, to her horror, she began to feel
something moving around inside as if it were a fetus.
Was she going crazy or was something even less acceptable at work?
Lydia was reluctant to go to her gynecologist because he might think
she was "losing it." But the physical feeling persisted and she made
an appointment with him. A few days before her appointment, she woke
up and "knew" that everything was all right; her stomach was no
longer distended, nothing was moving around in it, and all the
symptoms had disappeared. She canceled her appointment.
When Lydia told me about this episode, I was mystified. At the time,
abduction researchers knew that aliens take human eggs and human
sperm, fertilize them in vitro, add alien genetic material, and then
replace the altered hybrid embryo in utero. Presumably the subject
had to have a uterus in which to implant the embryo. But I had
regressed many women who were abducted when they were
postmenopausal, or had undergone tubal ligations, or had had their
uteri and ovaries removed. I had always assumed that the aliens
administered different reproductive procedures to them than to women
who were still fertile.
Lydia and I decided to do a hypnotic regression on the events that
occurred the night before she woke up feeling pregnant. She
remembered that she was asleep at her daughter's home in Florida
when the abduction took place.
After describing the first segment of a
typical abduction event, Lydia turned to the internal examination.
What do you think they're doing
internally now? Or can you tell that at all?
They're holding something like you would hold a baby, with
two hands, but it's not a baby. It's like a, I don't
know.... I can't even imagine.
[Gently] Does it look like a baby, or not?
It looks like a lobster. I can't imagine. I can't even
imagine. My legs are up, and they are in this position in
front of me. You know, almost as though they were inserting
They were inserting something, then?
I don't know.... It looks round and light colored, and I
would say about the size of a grapefruit.
So it's big.
And they're holding it.... I get the impression like you
would hold a baby, like something very precious.... They're
bringing it to me. ... This is a terribly repulsive idea. I
find this to be extremely repulsive, dirty, unclean. It's
got me very upset.
That they are bringing this to you?
And making it part of my body.... I get the sense, and I
have a terrible soreness in here—hot and sore. And I find
this to be extremely repulsive. This is a solid unit, it is
totally contained. There's something in it. I get the sense
like it's a sack, and they have inserted that. And my whole
feeling about it is that I don't want that in me.
Where do you think they would have inserted this, then?
But would this have been in the area where the uterus used
Maybe. Maybe. I don't know.
Do you feel that this is sort of the area they're working
on, or in?
As a matter of fact, my bladder felt like there was a lot of
pressure, as though my bladder was dropping. And for the
last six or eight months I felt that way.... I thought well,
I'm just getting older, and my muscles are not as strong as
they used to be.... I always felt that if I stood too long I
would feel like I had to lie down for a while and let it go
back into position. That kind of thing, like something was
pressing on it or it was dropping. But I never felt that
feeling that I have right now. Right now I feel such a
soreness throughout this lower abdominal area—and hot. It
feels so hot. My back hurts.
Do they say anything to you? Do they explain what they're
doing, or are they just silent about this? ...
I found it to be extremely repulsive.... And I did not want
that. And I'm in charge now. This is something I've got to
take care of.
That's the impression you get?
It's not that I was saying no. I wouldn't say no.... I won't
say no to them. I have a feeling that I'm here to serve....
I have that feeling though. I have a commitment to serve,
but I don't like it. I'm kind of telling them I find this
very repulsive. This is not what I want to do. But they
didn't ask me if I want to do this. I don't like this at
all, and I'm very upset.
I hope that you told that to them. They don't have a right
to do this, Lydia, this is something that's not their right.
So it's perfectly okay for you to be upset.
[Crying] I think this is about the worst thing that's ever
happened to me.... You know what this is making me do? I
have to change to conform to this.... The way my body
operates is being disturbed now, and I have to conform to be
compatible, to create an atmosphere conducive for this
thing....It's throwing my body all off.5
As I was listening to Lydia, I
remembered a postmenopausal abductee who had told me about feeling
pregnant and feeling something "kicking" in her lower abdomen. At
the time I did not know how to interpret the report. Now I knew.
I realized that it was possible that the
aliens are making women carry babies even if the woman does not have
a uterus. Instead of implanting the embryo in a uterus, the aliens
could be inserting an extrauterine gestational unit—a sac capable of
incubating a fetus without having to be attached to the uterine
lining. The aliens place the unit in an area near the uterus, or
perhaps even in the space that the womb originally occupied, or
behind the bladder, or near an ovary.
This led me to reconsider the situation with Melissa. The "implant"
that she had worried about was probably not a technological device,
as I had assumed, but an extrauterine fetal implantation near the
ovary. In this light, Melissa's adamancy about not removing it
became understandable—she unconsciously knew that she must not
disturb the fetus.
Now, other puzzling cases also began to make sense. The introduction
of air, accompanied by a bloating feeling and the sense that organs
were being "moved around," was most likely a preparation of the
space into which the aliens placed the extrauterine gestational
unit; they literally hollowed out an area for its placement.
The implications of these cases were unsettling. Whatever the
reproductive stage or abilities of female abductees, they can help
produce babies. They can "house" the standard uterine fetal implants
as well as extrauterine gestational units. In addition, these
gestational units might help to "camouflage" the phenomenon. They do
not trigger the human gonadotropin hormone reaction normally
registered on a pregnancy test.
The extensive use of women as hosts for hybrid babies brings into
sharp relief the importance of the Breeding Program. Its scope is
In theory, the aliens have produced
hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of offspring.
When an abductee becomes pregnant, what prevents her from aborting
the fetus? Or what prevents her from visiting a gynecologist to
detect an extrauterine gestational unit and have it removed? It has
become clear during the years of my research that the aliens prevent
these actions by removing the critical "evidence" before the
abductee can act. On many occasions, abductees have reported
scheduling an abortion only to find an empty uterus during the
By the time the abductee undergoes the procedure,
the aliens have already removed the fetus.
Claudia Negron, a woman who had raised two children before going
back to college and earning her bachelor's degree, described the
removal process that had occurred during one of her abductions.
First she saw a long instrument that the aliens inserted into her.
Strange object. I don't know if it's
metal or clear or.... They use it for making babies. They put
these things together in a laboratory, in a lab. And then they
insert them in the womb so that it will grow there and develop
into a baby. At a certain age—they monitor it, they know it's
progressing—at a certain time they come back, they take you
aboard and they remove the fetus, which by that time is not a
fully developed fetus but big enough to be recognizable.
They remove it, taking them to this
place. I've seen it before. Kind of fluid, they keep them in
this fluid, a warm fluid. It's like a tank and that has a lot of
fluid, has a lot of what is essential, I don't know, something
to keep them growing, keep them living.6
Logically, the aliens must be monitoring
the abductee's thoughts to protect the pregnancy. But do they
monitor and record everything a person thinks twenty-four hours a
day, or do they monitor selectively?
If they monitor continually, then
everything an abductee thinks would have to be received, recorded,
evaluated, and possibly acted upon. There is evidence to suggest
that this level of monitoring does not take place. For example, the
aliens are attracted to anything new on an abductee's body: an
appendectomy scar, a bruise, a hair color change, a tattoo, and so
on. They closely inspect the changed area and ask the person what it
signifies and how it happened. If they were continually monitoring,
they would probably know the answers.
Therefore, the aliens must monitor selectively. And they probably
target thoughts related to specific subjects. If an abductee thinks
about pancakes or shopping, it does not trigger a reaction. But if
an abductee thinks about abortion, pregnancy, babies, and implants,
these thoughts result in action if there is adequate time. When I
rushed Melissa to the gynecologist for an ultrasound examination,
the aliens did not have enough time to remove the "mass" they had
implanted in her body. It all happened within one hour.
How do the aliens monitor thoughts?
They most probably do it through
implants. Most abductees have alien implants, which they have been
describing for years, and which are high up in the nasal passage,
possibly as deep as the optic nerve or the pituitary gland, in the
ear, or in a sinus cavity. Abductees with implants suffer from
lifelong nasal problems, bloody noses, sinus congestion, diminished
hearing, tinnitus, and ear bleeding. Physicians have noted anomalous
scar tissue and holes in abductees' nasal passages.
Implants have also been placed in abductees' legs, arms, and necks.
Some abductees have reported implants inside their brains.
Negron described receiving this type of implant during an incident
He has some kind of instrument
in his hand. It looks like, it looks like a needle, a
hypodermic needle, but it's not. fit's] long. It has a long
tip to it and he puts that in my ear, all the way inside.
And it like just goes right through to the brain, it makes
my whole brain just go, I don't know, it does something to
my whole head. He said it's important. He communicates, he
says, "This is important," that he has to do this.
Does he say why it's important, or is he just sort of vague?
He tells me it's important for me, but actually I have a
feeling it's more important to him than it is to me. I think
they're inserting something inside my head. It's really
tiny, very tiny, small, whatever it is. And he said nobody
will ever know it's there.
Do you respond to that?
I'm not saying anything. I just feel the pain. It's like I'm
immobilized by this pain.
He says it's not going to hurt.
But it is hurting.
But it is. He said it's not going to last long. He says I
won't feel anything afterwards, I won't even know it's
there. I heard something pop in my ear. Oh! Oh! ... I asked
him what this is for, why are they doing this. He says—he
does not talk, he just sends his thought. It's like he
projects his thoughts to me and he says that they have to
know, they have to know how I see the world, how I see
things, how I interpret things as they occur and this is
their way of monitoring that. This tells them so they know
where I am at all times. They know how I react to every
situation at every moment. He said that this is important to
them. He says it's important for their research. They have
to know this ... because they want to know how the little
children will be. They want to know what to expect as they
grow older. It's all for the children.7
The exact functions of the implants are
unclear, but we can make some informed speculations. They are
probably complex multifunctional devices, which might monitor or
affect hormonal levels for lactation, menstruation, ovulation, or
pregnancy. They probably also serve as a means to locate abductees.
Implants in the ear, sinus cavity, and nasal passages might all
serve a variety of purposes.
What is clear is that the aliens will go to any extreme to protect a
pregnancy. If an abductee has any thought of abortion, they
intervene. Often the aliens strongly admonish the abductee not to
disturb the pregnancy, but this technique has had limited success.
Although many abductees say that they do not want to interfere in
the pregnancy, most women who are aware of their pregnancies exhibit
shock and horror and quickly overcome any qualms they might have
Kathleen Morrison's case is a good example. Although she was not
sexually active and had undergone a hysterectomy some years before,
she suspected that she was carrying an extrauterine pregnancy and
she made an appointment with Dr. Treller.
A few days before the
appointment, she was abducted and subjected to a gynecological
examination while an alien communicated with her during a concurrent
staring (Mindscan) procedure.
What do you think he is doing
when he does the staring procedure?
Well, I think that he's taking a reading on my body and he
did a quick pass on the mind but—okay he's going deeper.
He's going to give me a word and I should respond to it. He
gives me the word "Treller," and I respond that I'm going to
see the doctor. He asks if I don't feel well, and I said
that I was having some problems. And I get the feeling that
I—my mind also said something to the effect of—and I want to
find out what's going on. They want to know what I mean by
that. My response is, "Well, you know...."
When you say, "You know," how does he respond to that?
The word that comes to mind is ICE. The demeanor changes. I
get the feeling that prior to this they were ... a little
more gentle, and the face has been lifted.... I feel some
kind of heat in the vagina area. It's getting weirder when I
say that I don't know if it's heat or extreme cold.... My
question is, "What do you want?" and the thing is, "We need
to make sure everything is okay." "But it's not okay, and
that's why I'm going to the doctor." "You should have let us
know." I get the feeling I should have let them know, but I
don't know how to do that. Not that I would.
What do you think they are doing down there? Harvesting....
They are on your right side? ...
Yeah. There's one over at my right side. He's putting
pictures in my head.
What are you seeing?
Nursery full of children. Not ours, here, up there. It's
also attempts at family structure as we know it.
How do you mean?
They're not quite right. They'll be two—what seems older
beings—with a group of small children.
Two gray beings, or hybrid?
Sometimes a mixture [one gray and one hybrid, Kathleen added
Two older beings would be a mixture, or something?
Right. It's like their concept of family life here. I almost
want to say it's like a reconstructed scenario of a
When you see the family unit together, what are they doing?
It's like a reconstruction of a picnic. But they don't have
the picnic bench or anything like that. It's like they are
in a park type of environment. Groupings, walking,
sitting.... [They're] talking. They are trying to engage in
activities with the younger beings, the little ones, but
it's form, no substance. It's form, no substance. It's a
park type situation but there aren't any trees or brooks and
grass and stuff like that but it gives you the feeling that
that is like a simulation type— an acting exercise…Then they
ask me a question.
What do they ask you?
"How could you do that to them?" It's relating to the
picture. I don't understand ... do what to them?
I know what they're talking about. All right, when they were
asking before about, you know, why you have to go to the
doctor and all that, I said because I didn't feel well. I
wanted to know what was going on. And I know that I had a
picture in my mind that if something was there, it wouldn't
be there any longer, and that's what they're asking. How
could I do that, how could I have something taken out that
But you're not having anything taken out.
Well. I'm not, but... that was something that I was trying
to deal with—a "What if," and they picked up on it. Damn it!
Your thoughts aren't even your own.
Right. So you were thinking that if anything was there you
would have had it taken out?
That's right. It would have to go.
They're saying how could you have anything taken out that
was from them?
How could I do that to these little beings—these little
children? How could I do that to them? That I would have
something removed. That wouldn't be able to get to their
like kind—where they are supposed to be. DAMN IT!
So you were seeing a picture of the little children as an
example of what is wonderful and good and you're about to
mess it all up?
That's right. The guilt trip.... I feel like I screwed
For years abductees have reported being forced to engage in sexual
intercourse with another abductee on board a UFO. These reports have
been especially puzzling. Since aliens take sperm and eggs and then
impregnate a woman with an embryo, there seems to be no reason why
they should force humans to have intercourse. A popular theory is
that the aliens are interested in the emotional aspects of sex. I
have found what could be a simpler reason for this practice.
Intercourse usually takes place after an alien performs Mindscan,
arousing intense sexual feelings in both the man and the woman. At
this point, the aliens put the man and the woman together and the
couple engages in intercourse. Then, just before ejaculation, they
pull the two apart and the man ejaculates into a receptacle.
During hypnotic regression, abductees have described a variety of
emotional states during intercourse. Some are neutral. Some enjoy
it, as they are made to envision a loved one with them. Many feel
guilt and humiliation. Sometimes the man experiences remorse at
having done this to a woman.
Lucy Simpson reported a man who
communicated "I'm so sorry" as the aliens pulled them apart. But the
aliens seem to pay no attention to these emotional reactions. They
focus only on eliciting a normal physiological reaction so that the
man will ejaculate.
Although the aliens routinely collect sperm by attaching a
collection device to the man's penis, apparently this technique is
not foolproof. The evidence suggests that there are times when this
procedure and even some masturbatory techniques either fail or
cannot be performed.
Joel Samuelson, an easygoing forty-year-old man who owns his own
business in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, related an extremely puzzling
event in which the aliens attached a device to his penis for sperm
collection. Then, just a few minutes later, they led him into
another room, compelled him to have intercourse with a woman, and
collected his sperm.
As I listened to this account, it
occurred to me that although it is possible to ejaculate twice in
quick succession, the time between the two ejaculations was so short
that the chances are that Joel would not have been able to generate
very much more sperm. In addition, he had the impression that the
initial mechanical attempt had failed.9
It seems likely, then, that most sexual
intercourse between humans on board a UFO is for the purpose of
sperm collection and not necessarily for eliciting sexual
Abductees are often enlisted to obtain
sperm when the mechanical means do not work or have failed. Terry
Matthews helped to manually masturbate four men in turn as they lay
on tables. Each time the aliens collected the sperm.
Another example comes from Carla Enders,
who had to help the aliens collect sperm from an older man who was
They can't get him to respond
the way they want. So they ask me if I would help. I'm like,
"I don't understand." They're kind of saying, "It's not like
you haven't done it before." They're asking me to do
something, and I don't really know what they're asking me to
do. "You've never asked me these questions before, why are
you asking me these questions?" ... I'm standing in the
middle of them, and they're all around me. They've formed a
circle around me. I'm feeling like I just want to throw a
tantrum and scream and yell... They're telling me it won't
be that bad, just do it, and it will be over with....
Do you fully understand what they're asking you?
Not really. Except they want to get some sperm from this man
and they can't get it. And they've tried what they normally
would do, and it didn't work. And for some reason they have
this impression that he would really like that.... But I
still don't realize until I go in there what they're asking
me to do. They're just saying, "It's going to be different,
but don't worry about it," or something.
So what happens next, then?
I'm just feeling kind of puzzled as we're walking over
You walk back into the hallway, you mean?
Yes, and there's like two in front of me, and two behind me.
And we keep going further down the hall, not very far....
And I go into this room to the right. There's other ones in
there.... I'm getting flashes of it being an older man....
He's just sitting down on the end of the table, just sitting
there. He's not moving. He's older ... probably at least
midfifties. You can tell he's older, he's not fat, but his
muscle tone is different. It's not like a young person....
It seems like he wants to get up and leave too. Seems like
he can't move....
You can tap into his thoughts a little?
Yeah, and then it seems like they start, like they're doing
something so he will feel sexually, some kind of sexual
desire or something. It seems like he changes----It's like
he's not thinking about leaving anymore. He's not realizing
that they're all around him anymore. It's like he's
fantasizing or something.... It seems like they're asking me
to touch his genitals. And I'm not cooperating, but they
make my hands do it anyway.... I'm starting to get images
that I somehow really like this person. I don't understand
it. That maybe I'm really in love with this person.
Does this guy look familiar at all?
No. I'm thinking, why am I feeling that? Then it just
becomes that I don't really notice any other thoughts. I'm
not even noticing that they're there anymore. I don't really
remember how I started having, doing oral sex, I just
remember there was a flash and I was thinking, "I don't want
to be doing this," and my head is going up and down and I
can't stop it. It felt... like their hands were on the side
of my head, kind of pushing my head up and down, but not,
like, in a way it felt forcibly, but in a way it didn't. In
a way it felt like my head was just going up and down
anyway. But then I felt like I wanted to stop, and I
couldn't stop.... It seems like finally I can pull my head
away. And I'm just really feeling sick.
What do they do with him when you pull your head away?
It's like I'm thinking they're hoping that he will ejaculate
because it seems like that's what they were trying to get
him to do. I don't really know. It's like they're all coming
around him. ... It seems like they're getting what they
wanted to. It seems like they're satisfied with the results
because, it seems like they've got what they wanted.
So the procedure was successful for them.
Yes. It seems like I don't stay in there very long. They're
telling me I'll just forget. Because I'm really angry. I'm
thinking, "How did that happen?" and we're just walking down
Sperm collection is so important that
the aliens do not adhere to the accepted "rules" about sex between
"Carole" was traveling in Arizona with two friends and a
first cousin when they were all abducted. After her physical
examination, Carole was sexually aroused and led into another room.
The aliens then brought her cousin to her and the two had
intercourse—much to Carole's intense shame and guilt. The aliens
pulled them apart when her cousin began to ejaculate and collected
So again, the purpose of forcing sexual
intercourse between human seems to be to collect sperm.
An unintended consequence of intercourse for sperm collection might
provide a reason for another puzzling aspect of the abduction
phenomenon. Women abductees have reported that they became pregnant
under impossible conditions; they'd not engaged in sexual
intercourse with anyone and yet they were pregnant. They carried the
baby to term and they had a normal, healthy child.
One woman remembered seeing a bright
light while she was driving, then there was a period of missing
time. She became pregnant, and after her child's birth, she referred
to him as a "star child." Hearing the story of his birth, the
now-twelve-year-old son was convinced that he had traveled to his
mother's uterus "on a beam of light." At least some of these
"immaculate conceptions" are probably a result of bad timing, and
because the aliens are living, sentient beings, they make mistakes.
If, during an abduction, the male begins to ejaculate a few seconds
before the aliens pull him off the woman, she could easily become
While sexual intercourse between two humans is primarily for sperm
collection, there is another sexual scenario. Abductees have
reported establishing close relationships with other humans, which
the aliens arrange during their abductions. A male and a female
child meet while on board a UFO, continue to see each other during
abductions, and establish a friendship.
When they become adolescents, they enter
into an onboard sexual relationship. Sometimes they know each
other's names, and sometimes they make up names for each other.
Terry Matthews knew a boy named Ben Anderson, with whom she had a
deep relationship as a young girl and teenager during her
abductions. On one occasion she expected to meet him again, but the
aliens abruptly told her that he was dead and that "we have somebody
else for you to meet."
When she became upset, they told her
that it was not their fault and that he had died in an automobile
Occasionally two abductees will meet in a non-abduction context where
they get a strong sense of familiarity and feel a powerful
attraction toward each other. For example, Dena and Ray both knew
immediately that they belonged together when they met. They had no
idea how or why they felt that way, but the feeling was strong
enough for them to divorce their spouses and marry. Hypnosis
revealed that they have a long-term adolescent sexual relationship
that took place exclusively during abductions.
Budd Hopkins, who first identified this phenomenon, has suggested
that the mating of two abductees indicates that the aliens are
conducting a study of the abductees' relationships, both social and
This may indeed be the case. It is also
possible that the two abductees possess certain genetic properties
that the aliens want passed on to their children.
Controlling the Human Subjects
A puzzling aspect of the abduction phenomenon has been the use of
Mindscan to sexually arouse women. In Mindscan, which usually comes
during or immediately after the initial physical examination, a tall
alien places his face very close to that of the abductee and stares
intensely at her. The alien can elicit a variety of feelings and he
can make the abductee envision specific scenarios of his own
choosing. One of the most common procedures is when the alien uses
Mindscan to elicit sexual feelings that escalate unabated until the
female abductee reaches a high sexual plateau or orgasm.
The question is: Why are sexual feelings stimulated during
Mind-scan? To answer this, one must pay attention to what the tall
alien, who usually performs Mindscan, does at the onset of the
abductee's orgasm. He immediately breaks off his staring procedure
and goes between the abductee's legs to begin the gynecological
The most frequent procedure that
abductees report during orgasm is egg harvesting. Inducing orgasm
does not appear to be linked to any interest in or testing of sexual
response. Instead, the evidence suggests that the aliens need the
physiological effects of orgasm— tumescence, expansion, lubrication,
and perhaps ovulation—to facilitate the gynecological procedures in
which they are engaged.
Although the role of orgasm in ovulation
is controversial, physician (and abductee) Gloria Kane felt certain
that during Mindscan the alien was provoking the release of an egg
from her ovary.
When I was ... sixteen they said
that they were altering the way I worked inside, just after
I got my period, that they were altering the way that I
worked so that I would be like a rabbit. I would be sexually
excited and then produce, or release an ovum. ... They
wanted me to get excited enough to ovulate that way.13
Ovulation must take place on cue for the Breeding Program.
Hybrids have instructed other hybrids in the intricacies of
providing for ova release. Christine Kennedy recounted an
event in which one hybrid discussed inducing ovulation with
three other hybrids.
He's saying something to the other ones.
When he says something, does he face them, or is he feeing
away from them, or ... ?
They're facing him. He's pushing around my ovaries.
What's your position on the table? Straight down, legs
straight out and together?
No, they have my feet in these things—the stirrup things.
I see. So then am 1 assuming that your knees are up and legs
apart and all that?
Mm-hmm [Yes]. I can't move my feet. He's pressing on your
Now, when he says something to these other guys, can you
pick up just a little what he said, a thought here, a
They're going to make me ovulate. And that's what he says?
Mm-hmm. He says something about an egg, but I don't know if
it's, "Take an egg." I don't think so. I can't see my arms
... moving around.
You arms are moving? How do you mean? I was able to move my
Are you flailing away? I wanted to smack the son of a bitch.
Good. So, you have some movement. I can't do anything with
them. I put them down. He hooks my right arm down and the
other two, they're on the other side of the table. They
So he's no longer pressing down on your ovary when he does
Mm-mm [No]. I feel like I'm being patronized. He's saying
something. Something about why do I want to do that, or
Do you tell him off, or do you respond at all?
No, because ... he's calming me down, he's corning real dose
to my face.
How close does he get to you?
Really close. I feel him touching my forehead.
If he makes me reach an orgasm ... son of a bitch!
When that happens—he's just sort of standing next to you,
touching your forehead?
With his head. He was staring. He's doing the same shit that
they always do.14
The aliens' ability to stare into an
abductees' eyes and effect a wide variety of changes in brain
function is extraordinary. At first it seems almost supernatural or
mystical, as if Svengali were peering into Trilby's eyes,
mesmerizing her to do anything he wanted.
But the mystical and supernatural are
not part of the abduction phenomenon. The aliens use their advanced
knowledge of human physiology to control humans and, ultimately, to
make sure that humans comply with the Breeding Program and all other
parts of the alien agenda.
The aliens' ability to control humans comes through the manipulation
of the human brain. For example, when the alien moves close to the
abductee's eyes to begin the staring procedure, almost immediately
the abductee feels emotional and physical effects. One way to
explain this is that the alien uses the optic nerve to gain entrance
to the brain's neural pathways. B
y exciting impulses in the optic nerve,
the alien is able to "travel" along the optic neural pathway,
through the optic chiasma, into the lateral geniculate body, and
then into the primary visual cortex in the back of the brain. From
there he can travel into the secondary visual cortex in the
occipital lobes and continue into sites in the parietal and temporal
lobes and the hypothalamus. Through that route, the alien can
stimulate neural pathways, travel to many neural sites, and cause
the "firing" of neurons at whatever sites he wants.
Brain stimulation allows the alien to produce a range of effects. If
the alien can connect into the neural pathways, he can reconstitute
an abductee's memories. He can inject new images directly into the
visual cortex, bypassing normal retinal observations, and cause
people to "see" things that become part of their abduction
"memories." He can activate sites within the limbic system and cause
strong emotions, such as fear, anger, and affection. He can create
feelings of sexual arousal that build relentlessly to a peak. And he
can institute a form of amnesia that helps to preserve secrecy.
By using the optic nerve, the alien can, in effect, travel down the
brain stem, into the autonomic nervous system in the spine, and then
branch into the parasympathetic nervous system, giving him contact
with virtually any organ. Abductees often talk about feeling
physical sensations in their genitals, bladder, or other areas when
an alien performs Mindscan procedures. The physiological responses
necessary for erection and ejaculation in men, and tumescence,
expansion, and lubrication in women can be artificially generated in
How the aliens engage the optic nerve is, of course, unclear, but
there are some clues. When Mindscan or any staring procedure begins,
the abductee cannot avert or close his eyes; they must remain fixed
and open. The abductee is, in effect, forced to peer into the
alien's eyes. Most abductees report that his eyes are dark brown or
black, and opaque.
Others describe what might be liquid
inside the alien's eyes. Others frequently see a moving or wiggling
structure in the back of the eyes that generates a "light." It is
possible that the light-emanating mechanism engages the optic nerve
to begin the alien's journey through neural pathways.
Some abductees can feel the engagement when it happens. Allison Reed
often sensed the alien's physical attachment to her brain during
What's he doing when he's inside
I feel a little tired. There's that thing again. I can't see
it but I can feel it, it's ... and it goes all around. I
don't know, it goes all around, it's like a blue light. It's
between my skull and my brain, of course I can't see it, I
just feel it. I don't feel much of anything right now. I
feel good, I feel relaxed.. . .
The blue light, is that from his own eyes, do you guess, or
from an instrument?
No, I don't like to call it a light because it's not a light
like you see, it's more like an energy. I can't see it,
usually in these places you see certain things but you feel
more than you see. Your major senses are no longer sight and
smell and touch, it's your sixth sense when you're here.
It's from him, it's not an instrument, it's an energy.
Somehow he can make this energy go in my head.15
Similarly, Courtney Walsh, a young woman pursuing a career
in the biological sciences, "felt" her neural pathways being
No, it feels like, it's hard to describe, like something is
worming around in there. You can feel the different nerve
pathways.... It actually feels nice, though. I can feel
actual—it feels like something is—little currents of energy
running around in my head.16
Jack Thernstrom, a graduate student in the physical
sciences, had a similar reaction and sensed that the alien
was physically going through his mind:
Now he's looking in my face again, and this time it's that
feeling of a knife prying into my mind.
This is a feeling of... a physiological situation that's
going on there?
It's like pure mental pain.
What do you think he's doing now?
I have this impression of, as if he's probing his way
through a lot of—it's almost a physical sensation, as if
thin strings or cables are all closely intertwined, almost
hairlike, but under tension. It seems I've seen something
like this ... he's kind of groping in there, and finding
paths between them to get at a certain point. It's this
feeling of a knife probing through, and forcing its way
between things.. .. It's somewhere between active and
passive ... it's not like opening it up and looking at it,
it's as if one had a mass of wires and one were pulling and
separating them to see what's connected to what.17
Some abductees visualize random thoughts
and images as the alien traverses the neural pathways, as if the
"travel" enervates the pathways as a by-product of the procedure.
One woman saw a frame house, a
mule-drawn carriage, a "Gibson-Girl's" hair, someone washing the
hair on a mannequin's head (no body) in a basin, an iceberg in a
fjord, the top of an old house in winter, two children, and a
nineteenth-century print of two politicians. Another abductee
envisioned a comb, teeth, numbers, letters, parts of a face, a man
falling out of a building, a bird in flight, knife edges, a leg, a
mouse hole, a pocket watch, and potatoes.
Once joined with the abductee's neural pathways, the alien
essentially has free rein to do what he wants. The abductee is no
longer in control of his own thoughts. The aliens can exercise
absolute power over the minds and bodies of the abductees. They can
make the abductees think, feel, visualize, or do anything the aliens
The aliens' ability to attach to the abductee's neural pathways is
not automatic. They turn and twist their heads to get the best
vantage point to hook into the optic nerve. They hold the abductee's
head so that she will not make any movements that might disrupt
engagement. Kathleen Morrison had an unusual Mindscan in which the
first alien could not make an adequate attachment. After the first
alien tried without success for several minutes, another alien took
over and she could quickly feel the effects of the familiar Mindscan
But another abductee successfully resisted mental engagement.
a recent abduction, Reshma Kamal found that she had more muscle
control than usual and she used it to prevent a neural connection.
She shifted her eyes back and forth
rapidly while reciting an Arabic religious phrase. The first alien
tried to lock into her eyes but could not. He diverted her attention
by causing a pain in her head, and he threatened not to take her
home, but she refused to give in. Another alien took over and
increased the threats. Still she refused to stop, although she was
getting dizzy moving her eyes back and forth. A third alien tried,
and then a fourth.
They could not stop her from shifting
her eyes. Eventually they gave up and said that they would continue
the procedure at the next abduction.18
Abductees have said that in some way they know the mental procedures
are related to the hybrids. The abductees suggest that aliens record
information from them and then transfer it into hybrids' minds so
that they can learn how humans live and feel. There are also
procedures in which hybrids directly transfer information from human
minds into their minds.
An alien attached Allison Reed to an
adult female hybrid with wires, and as the two sat facing each
other, Allison could feel her thoughts and memories flowing out of
her and into the hybrid. The hybrid "absorbed" Allison's thoughts
and experiences and apparently derived some benefit from this
The mental procedures must be viewed in relation to the aliens'
reproductive agenda. Without the ability to manipulate the human
brain, the aliens would be unable to control the abductees
physically or mentally and the Breeding Program would not be
feasible in its present form. Abductees often feel even more
violated by the mental procedures than by the reproductive ones.
They know that their private thoughts are not their own and that
they can be "tapped into" and manipulated.
Although I often try to
reassure them that in spite of what happens their thoughts are free,
they know that this may not be entirely true.
Through abduction accounts, we have been
able to piece together facts that provide some answers to these
