I read about this in a book
"ufos, a report on australian encounters" by Keith Basterfeild
it deals with the abduction phenonemn.
The general idea behind it is that when in a half-awake, dreamy state, we may see and hear things that arnt really there.
These episodes can acount for a large number of reported encounters at night, where the person falls asleep easily straight after it, instead of
being awake and scared.
He thought of this i think, not sure, after looking into a case where a woman that said she had been abducted a couple of times, and was
underobservation by ufologists. they said she drifted off at one point, then when came too she claimed that she had just been abducted
There were a couple more examples in the book, all pretty much the same thing.
Has any one else heard of this or know any thing?
sorry for no links, it was a book
