I am curious if anyone here would like to join me in a research project into the phenomenon of alien abductions. I find the subject to be fascinating.
Because either thousands and thousands of people are being taken against their will by alien beings and are being experiemented on, or thousands and
thousands of people are experiencing a form of mass hysteria induced fantasy. In either case, I believe that the phenomenon is equally intriguing, and
really is of epic proportions. Either our society is under attack from beings from another world, or there is the single largest mass delusion taking
place, which would suggest that a large portion of humanity is quite mad.
There is of course the possibility that abductions are real, but that they are carried out by human beings for nefarious purposes.
The mission of this research project would not be to draw a determination of whether or not abductions are really occurring. Our mission would be to
collect and present as much data as possible, and try and draw some possible explanations for the phenonemon, including hypothesis's for different,
The way I see it, we could break the research project into several categories.
A history of the phenomenon, a who, what, where, and when, as well as some possible why's. This history would go from the past, I believe the Hill's
were or are recognized as the first "alien" abductee's, until the present. With enough data collected we may even be able to project a future
analysis of where the phenomenon is headed.
What happens during an abduction? What happens after? Is there any correlation to people who are the victims of multiple abductions? This will require
that we interview a number of abductees. We will need to brain storm on this, but I have found several web sites, actually support groups for
abductees. We would need to contact some people and ask a standard set of questions. All would remain anonomous.
As with anything related towards fringe science there is the hoax factor. We should coallate a table of known hoaxes. We can try then and speculate
on why people do hoax. Off of the top of my head I can say attention and money, but is there a more subtle connection between those that hoax and
those who do not?
Is there a pattern to where and when abductions occur?
Who is responsible?
This would be a rather large and well researched area to cover everything. I gave 3 possibilities for abductions above. There may be more. My
intention is to explore each of these as thoroughly as possiblE, and to remain as objective as possible at the same time.
This is another interesting aspect. People and doctors claim to have had objects implanted into them, which are later removed surgically. Some of
these claims can be explained, for example a piece of asphault from the \road gets stuck in your skin. Yet some examples are not easily explained
away, and there have been some very interesting findings in regards to these types of implants. So our mission again is to remain as objective as
possible and present the findings in these cases.
Methods of Lost Memory Retrieval
One of the most common themes in abductions, on the surface, is that people do not remember the incidents until the memories are coaxed from them via
certain methods. A widely used method is hypnotic regression, and this method is very controversial. It is an aspect that really needs to be explored,
and if possible, can we chart the different types of memory recoveries, from having no memory loss what-so-ever to having complete memory loss.
What about people who claim to be in contact with alien beings. Again, this needs to be well documented, case by case, from everybody from Adamski to
BO (heavens Gate) in the spectrum. As always we should try to remain objective while collecting the data, and leave our opinions out of it until we
are ready to make a project summary.
I think it would be a good idea if everyone involved made a project summary at the end. Again, the goal of this project is not to debunk or prove the
allegations. I dont think that is possible. But it would be a great data base for researchers, on one of the most important sociological phenomenons
to occur in human history.
I am looking for 3 or 4 people to help in this project, so please either respond to this thread if you are interested or u2u me and let me know.
