Some people who have suffered from sleep paralysis have reported entering a state of uncontrolled lucid dreaming. In this state the instinctual mind of the dreamer seems to take over, often subjecting the subject to the most intense of nightmares or 'night terrors.' In such a state the subject can interact with the real world around them, sleep walking, opening doors and turning on lights, however their reality is populated by concepts of the dream. It should be noted that one of the most common forms of this dream is the 'Grey Stranger' where a undefined shadowy presence is reported to torment and torture the subject. This form of dream was first recorded by a Roman Emperor and is so ingrained in some cultures that the Russians have named the figure Baba Yaga or the Old Grey Crone (Witch). It is widely believed amongst most serious researchers of UFO's and Alien Abduction that this is the explanation behind the reports of 'Grey Alien Abductions.' It should also be noted that this experience should not be taken lightly, the dreams are utterly real to those who experience them and the paranoia created by this apparent sudden shifting in reality can leave subjects with very real emotional reactions. In some of the worse cases it has left sufferers with PTSD or even driven them to suicide. Many of those who have repeatedly suffered from these experiences suffer immense sleep deprivation which in turn can cause the manifestation of further mental stress.
