Accepting the Unacceptable
I have spent nearly all of my life in an academic setting, and I
have always believed in the primacy of reason and logic. Studying
the abduction phenomenon has made me seem, to my colleagues and many
lifelong friends, illogical and out of touch with "reality." Now I
am in the extremely uncomfortable position of reinforcing their
opinion, not only because I have found the abduction phenomenon to
be "real," but also because I have become somewhat apocalyptic in
view of its purpose.
I have come to the conclusion that human
civilization may be in for a rapid, and perhaps disastrous, change
not of our design and I am all the more uncomfortable because the
reason for this change is the least acceptable to society—alien
My conclusion that alien integration will soon bring about dramatic
social change bears no relationship to other more familiar
It has no religious underpinning like the
Second Coming, no technological basis like nuclear holocaust or
environmental tampering. Any of these rationales would give it at
least a minimal standard of credibility. I am aware of my
conclusion's superficial similarities to cultural constructs like
science fiction or millennialism, but the evidence does not warrant
I have not derived my conclusion from
human thought or endeavor in any way, save through the conduit of
memory. My conclusion is based on my knowledge of activities beyond
our control, conveyed through narratives told by victims of its
advance guard— accounts that society sees as irrefutable evidence of
There are those in society who might "admit of the possibility" that
the abduction phenomenon exists, but most are not in a position to
influence scientific or public opinion. In the vacuum of an
acceptable scientific paradigm, the media have picked up the subject
as a guaranteed way to generate revenue, and although at times
treated fairly, it has become just another tabloid topic, competing
with other bizarre and extraordinary events that seize the public's
Our encounters with the abduction phenomenon have often come through
the haze of confabulation, channeling, and unreliable memories
reported by inexperienced or incompetent researchers. When competent
research reveals the phenomenon, the revelation is so fantastic that
it is intellectually and emotionally impossible to embrace. It
smacks so much of cultural fantasy and psychogenesis that the
barriers to acceptance of its reality seem insurmountable.
Yet, I am persuaded that the abduction phenomenon is real. And as a
result, the intellectual safety net with which I operated for so
many years is now gone. I am as vulnerable as the abductees
themselves. I should "know better," but I embrace as real a scenario
that is both embarrassing and difficult to defend. In spite of that,
I must go where the evidence leads me. I have come to view the alien
abduction phenomenon and its purpose as an asteroid hurtling toward
Earth—discovered too late for intervention. We can track its
progress and yet be utterly incapable of preventing the collision.
As much as I want to be optimistic, I find little to fuel hope for
the future. In a way, I wish I could be like the Positive
researchers, existing in a naive but happy dreamland, awaiting the
coming of the Benevolent Ones who will engulf us all in love and
protection. The Positives' beliefs, shrouded in their own form of
spirituality, must be guided by a Utopian vision that is lacking in
The challenge of understanding UFO sightings that occupied so much
of my time and attention when I first began my research is now a
distant memory. Then I treated the phenomenon as a giant puzzle, not
realizing that the completed picture would be far more distressing
than the optimism and excitement I felt in the act of putting it
As the pieces fell into place, an unease
began to take hold of me. I realized early on that the UFO
phenomenon was the only physical occurrence that we have ever
encountered that actively dictates the terms upon which it could be
studied. I did not understand that our inability to study the
phenomenon was part of a calculated program to hide its activities
The flood of information coming from the abduction phenomenon caused
me to have epiphanic shock, much like the abductees go through when
they realize what has been happening to them. Now I have insight
into alien actions and motivations. The mysteries of UFOs "chasing"
cars, disappearing, leaving marks on people's bodies, and so forth—
all are routine elements of abduction activity. What researchers
were hearing from those who had these experiences or even sighted
low-level UFOs were merely fragments of memories, often distorted
and always incomplete.
With competent hypnosis, what I have
heard from countless people who have been abducted and taken aboard
UFOs were complex, matching, detailed accounts all leading to
unavoidably distressing conclusions.
When I first heard of certain alien procedures, they sounded
irrational and illogical, but as I learned about alien goals, they
have proven to be the opposite. Everything the aliens do is logical,
rational, and goal-oriented. With the use of superior technology,
both physical and biological, they are engaging in the systematic
and clandestine physiological exploitation, and perhaps alteration,
of human beings for the purposes of passing on their genetic
capabilities to progeny who will integrate into the human society
and, without doubt, control it.
Their agenda is self-centered, not
human-centered, as would be expected from a program that stresses
reproduction. In the end it is possible that it will be of some
benefit to us, but if we survive as a species, the price for this
charity will be relinquishment of the freedom to dictate our own
destiny and, most likely, our personal freedom as well.
Through competent research, many of the abduction phenomenon's
challenges have been met, many of its mysteries solved. And one of
its aspects has emerged with crystal clarity. The aliens have fooled
They lulled us into an attitude of
disbelief, and hence complacency, at the very beginning of our
awareness of their presence. Thus, we were unable to understand the
dimensions of the threat they pose and act to intervene. Now it may
be too late. My own complacency is long gone, replaced by a sense of
profound apprehension and even dread. We know what their behavior
means, and now it is imperative to ask what the consequences of that
behavior will be for future generations of human society.
Perhaps, the answer to that question
will not be found until they have completed their agenda, but I do
not think that we will have to wait very long. It has taken us more
than fifty years, but we have finally learned why the UFOs are here.
We now know the alarming dimensions of the alien agenda and its
goals. I could never have imagined it would turn out this way. I
desperately wish it not to be true. I do not think about the future
with much hope. When I was a child, I had a future with much hope.
When I was a child, I had a future to look forward to.
Now I fear for the future of my own
If you think that you may have been involved with the abduction
phenomenon, I would like to hear about your experiences.
