Sure some people have issues and blame it on abductions. I feel that their are many more real abductions than we will ever know.
So do I, just not millions of them. According to the Roper poll some 3 million Americans believe they may have been abducted, out of a population of
250 million. If you extend that number to the Planet you get something on the order of 50+ million. I have a problem with that.
For one thing the process of Abduction leads to massive disruptions of people's ability to function normally. Of those who have had professional help
the amount of sexual disfunction is staggering. Taken to the level suggested by the Poll, and extending that over the time that humans have existed,
you end up with a total destruction of Society as we know it.
Since we are still here, that suggests to me that the level of Abductions is much less than people think.
I think it might be helpful to say that I believe that few people intentionally make-up these stories. Most start out with some sort of problem and
end up at Abduction, and that is where the problem lies. Recovered memories are the most tricky and complex beasts around, it is nearly impossible to
conduct these sorts of sessions without leading the subject in one form or another. One wrong question and you head down the wrong path.
We have tons of proof to show this is true, whole cases of child abuse that turned out to be nothing but mistakes on the investigator's part. And
many times this is done through normal questioning with no Regression at all!
And as hard as it may be for a well-adjusted person to accept, the need for attention is just huge. I have listened to people sitting in jail who say
that they are happier now than at any time in their life. Why? Because people have been paying attention to them. We crave positive attention, but
when that is not to be found we take negative. The worst thing for any human being is to feel that they do not matter to anyone.
People have ruined their lives for it, and they will continue to do so.
You look like a nice Lady, but I do not understand how your story could be even slightly true. Not that it could not happen, but if you are correct in
what you say then you would NEVER be allowed to speak in public like this.
I will make this offer, if you really can document and prove any significant part of what you say then contact me in private. With what you have I
could change the World.
I have to disagree. That is an extremly valid piont. No one as of yet has proven that we can travel at the speed of light let alone faster than that.
And the jury is still out on whether or not wormholes are a realistic possiabilty. So how can we be so sure people are being abducted and yet we still
can ONLY guess as to there method of transportation.
I guess my perspective is just different than yours. What I see is a steady march through Time that leads us to travel faster and faster. Not that
long ago it took weeks to cross the Oceans, now we do it in a day. Once we were confined to this Planet, today, this very day, some of us went up
into Space (To Discovery: Fly baby, Fly!).
We will continue, and it only makes sense that other Races have followed the same sort of progression. It is completely within the bounds of
possibility that another Race could have a million years of development on us. And it does not take a million years to do the job, in maybe as little
as 100 years we will find ways to travel interstellar space.
I would strongly suggest that anyone who is hung up on the Speed of Light go back and read stories about the Sound Barrier. I do not mean books
written about the subject today, I mean read the accounts from the times. Many of the most learned said it could NEVER be broken, it was a physical
limit that would defeat any attempt to cross. They were just as sure as you are today, and just as wrong.
How we will eventually break the Speed of Light? I do not know, although I suspect it will involve changing the rules a bit. Perhaps for normal matter
there is a limitation, but we might find a way to alter a ship and it's contents enough to allow greater speeds. Or maybe it is just a matter of
enough push and does not require anything further.
