Thank you Argentus for your kind words.
There's just something I don't understand about all of this.
Sure, there'll be a medical term for someone who may think
he/she's being abducted, but I would expect all measures to
be taken to prove to the person that it isn't happening.
If that was done, I would assume the person would be more
open to the idea that his/her 'encounters' were a medical problem
more than a paranormal or supernatural problem.
And yet, thousands of people claim that this terrible action
is happening to them and even though I have not researched it
enough to say that the vast majority suffer from a illness that
is well documented and perfectly explainable, I would wager that
most cases are frowned upon by the medical proffession and
labeled that it is a mental disorder and nothing else.
Of course, most people who are allegedly abducted go about their
normal lives and simply endure the assaults, this I find really disturbing.
I agree that John Mack and others are researching through hypnosis
the continuing abductions and attempting to see a bigger picture,
But surely Doctors, neurosurgeons etc, must have nailed this by now.
Surely, every case must have been checked, not just medication
administered and the person sent on their way, but checked thoroughly.
Is the person living alone? Can information be gleaned from a partner
to show that something strange happening or that this is a condition that
can be allayed with pills and nostrums.
It just seems that everyone is skirting around this problem when
certain practical things can be done to show that it isn't real.
I for one, would set about proving that the abductions were not
real, I would aggresively attempt to show that no creature from
another world/time or a Government agency was taking people
for whatever reason.
That way one would at least show the symptoms are connected to
a certain psychological malady and then the person could move on
and seek help.
Of course, if it was proven the other way.... then what?
There must be something that can be done to help these people.
