and maybe a few other things.

As I have stated many times that I am a noob in the UFO/Alien arena. Joined ATS to learn more but now I am more confused than ever-about a few things. I swear I have read everything I could find about the subject but there are still a few remaining questions-that if answered, just might get me off this dam fence of believing or not in UFO/Alines.

I thought a lot about the questions and my wife said, what is the one question you would want answered that would make you believe. EASY! Do they believe in our version of GOD? (or does God exist). We both decided to easy (But feel free to expand on that one).

So then, I came up with this one I have to present about clothes after reading countless reports/stories/etc about encounters with Aliens or time and then comparing it to us.

The one BIG question I came up with, and I know it may sound stupid but bear with me in my thought processes.

Why do Aliens wear uniforms/clothing?



Examples from different areas and times:

USA: Betty & Benard Hill-New Hampshire 1961


"The UFO Incident-from the book about Betty & Barney Hill's abduction: The Interrupted Journey (1967)
Source for the Hills pics & info: www.ufocasebook.com...

You can say whatever you wish about why the Aliens are depicted with clothing but the one thing I noticed is that neither of them appeared to state that the Aliens were naked etc.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Behcet Ocal-Central-Turkey 1948



Their clothing was very foreign to a young village boy of 1948. They wore a kind of fitted jump suit. For Behcet one of the most interesting things was what he called their “illuminated tool” hanging on their necks. The tool also contacted their waist and there were buttons or keys over the panel of the tool and Behcet remembers lights on the panel.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Gundiah Mackay Alien Abduction-Queensland, Australia2001



She indicated she called out and heard what seemed to be a male voice, asking her to be calm and that everything would be alright and that she would not be harmed. Soon an opening appeared in the wall and "a guy" about 6 feet tall walked into the room. The man appeared to be slender in build but in perfect proportion, covered head to foot in a full body suit. He had what seemed to be a black covering mask on his face, with a hole for his eyes, nose and mouth.

I think you got th picture. Go to just about any adbuction/Alien encounter story and there are sketches/darwings.

Okay, so why do they wear clothes?:

Enviroment: Ours, theirs? Do they already know what to wear before they leave? Do they bring changes of clothes with them? Need to survive?

Military/Symbolism/Uniforms: Required to by command? Intimidation? Identification?

Ediquet: When in Rome.... theory (do what the Romans do)? Maybe they figure since we are they should be as not to encourage our nakedness
(

Or: Where they dammed by God also when the whole Adam and Eve thing went down? Maybe those two ruined it for everyone? Or did they have their own Adam and Eve event? Maybe our Adam and Eve is there Adam and Eve too(just told with an update to fit the human race)?

Why aren't they naked? What do they care what we think of them or their clothes?

Well, there is my thoughts on the topic. Can anyone relate to this topic and understand what I am getting at? I guess, to sum it up, is that the clothes are added by the people to make their stories more believable to the people listening/reading etc. In other words, made up.

What do you think?



EDIT to Add: It should be noted that there are numberous story/encounters with no indication of clothing (and skethches). Interesting to note that no mention of Private Parts is ever made (well, I haven't seen any-guess the writers and/or story tellers are being polite?)

Yours is a valid question and I will be interested in the answers provided by our members. This thread will greatly help me in my Grey's Anatomy 101 thread. My future analysis will be on the subject of the Grey's genitalia.

Star and flag for your post and good luck with finding satisfactory explanations.

Who knows? Any question you pose on the subject is only gonna be speculation.

I will say that not all civilizations on this planet wear clothing. Those civilizations that don't are usually considered to be "less advanced".

Why do you wear clothes OP? I'm fairly certain that even in the privacy of your home you do not walk around in the buff.

They probably wear clothes the same reason we do, for modesty, heat, sanitary reasons, protection from the elements, maybe these 'clothes' enhance their physical abilities or cloak them, or to generate energy.

They're far ahead enough in technology to be able to use clothing beyond the reasons we use clothing.

For two people that never existed they sure get a lot of blame.

Now they're to blame for what happens on other planets, what a crack up

So they are bound to the same laws of nature (I guess would be how to say it?).

Then that rules out they are Gods/Angels/Spirits. Whew...

Good then. That means they have weaknesses like ourselves. Which may explain why they come and go-attempting to go un-noticed etc.

Which then could mean: They fear us more then we should fear them. They may have different tech that seems incredible to us but we may have stuff that is just as much to them?

Which would explain the no mass or open contact. Hmmmmm. Getting good.

Okay, we are narrowing things down.

The uniforms I've seen are formfitting blue, black and one was silvery. Two piece drop waisted suit,more blue, a silken type ornate high ranking non uniform but corporate or counselor outfit??? Biotech hard armor like a modified transformer suit as armor??? These are with helmets and visers. The ones on their crafts can very, but the formfitting ones seem to be protective from our magnetic/gravitational field, perhaps other forms of protection. The biotech armor was the males guarding a female technician I imagine they are fully able to defend and would be top line militia uniform of some kind. Seen on a man around 7 feet tall and also 8 feet tall. The one 7 feet tall was dark haired is associated with both a hollowed out astroid craft/station and a huge station, mulit stories high viewing the sun. He said Africa was the symbol for earth. The man 8 feet tall was blond, and from Taurus constellation 65 light years away and Mount Shasta, according to what he told me.

You first need to understand that censorship is the reason humans put clothing on aliens...............The mistaken assumption that aliens suffer from the same needs and requirements as human...........The lack of understanding of how much energy is required to move mass through space.............Failure to realize that the more advanced the race, the more advanced their solutions.............Teleportation being the ultimate idea of humanity..............Moving a physical living body and the necessary enviroment would be size prohibitive..........Moving the mind is the only feasible way, build a body when you get there.

DAM. That's what I'm talking about. Now that is some stuff to chew on. I never thought of that-build the body when you get there!!!

You my friend get a Star-a flag if I could!

Here's my take.

Having gone through what I think (with a hypnotherapist concurrence) an 'abduction', I am almost certain we humans simply can't relate or equivocate their existence. They appear to be in a whole different dimension.

I liken it to: A domestic pet trying to comprehend CNN let alone the mechanics of the television set itself.

I don't think we 'get' it/them therefore can't identify with it so we lack the art of verbal expression.

Their clothes? Well....I have a feeling we butcher the truth (because we simply can't comprehend it) and use our primitive verbiage to try to explain it. To me? They were nude yet.........they weren't. So there you have it. My primitive explanation!

In my experience (that I still struggle with) I can't even describe their presence (for they were almost in a totally foreign dimension) let alone describe their clothing.

So....this whole paradigm unfortunately reduces to our own personal experience and our ability (or lack thereof) to convey it.

Almost like a caveman trying to explain thunder to their wife. I'm sure every clan had their own 'spin' on the event.

Interesting thread! Thanks!

I think you are approaching this the wrong way. Reading other people's opinions and experience does not really enlighten anyone on UFOs. You'll just have to keep doing your own reaearch.

In any case this thread seems to be an attempt to mock the subject.

I agree.
Hearing/reading someone's opinion (because that is exactly what it is) will only muddy the water and almost be counter-productive.

Can you express to a blind person what the color green looks like?
Same dilemma here.

'Truth' is self-experience and at the rate Humans are going (and dividing) we'll never be on the same page about anything let alone this subject.

I really hope your motive for this thread wasn't to mock this confusing reality.....because it's hard enough for some people to cope with.


Peace~

Not mocking the subject AT ALL. I am totally serious!

Look at One Moments account/post. First hand there! And excellently presented.

To be honest, I was hoping to get more responses in the Adam and Eve part of my idea. Do we share the same God? Did those two ruin for everyone? Did they (aliens) have there own story that lead them from being able to live naked to being forced by God to endure the elements?

And secondly, I think the clothes descriptions give by witnesses are important-for many of reasons! That being said, I think SOME people who claim to have an eno#er with Alein(s) are making it up and they toss in clothing descriptions to enhance their tale.

Glad you are not mocking the subject. A light-hearted approach is OK provided there is serious intention.

To be honest with you, your question suggest a predisposition on your part. You are assuming any other entities living in our space must have some kind of system (religious or otherwise). I do not agree with that.

Aliens and UFOs as a topic offers the greatest opportunity to philosophise. The answer is to be found somewhere in the realm of metaphysics, philosophy, Psychology , Religion or the occult. You pick the one you are comfortable with and answers will come.

As for what clothes they wear, I hear there is a fashion show next week on planet Zul
(sorry , could not resist)

While some people like to go off the wall with asserting they know a lot about aliens - I'll just put it to you in the most reasonable ways I can:

We wear clothing for a number of reasons - not just as an inexplicable cultural pastime.

We wear it to regulate heat (both from hot and cold climates), protect our bodies from damage/injury (miners wearing the old-school jeans, bikers wearing leather), to help conceal our location (various forms of camouflage), to indicate rank/class/role/specialty, to appeal to others in our culture, and to identify ourselves.

Clothing, of any form on another species, is likely to perform many of the same functions. They may have different technologies and abilities - but they will still fall under many of the same roles. In almost every case - they augment our status.

Now, going on another side-note and entertaining the idea that some (or all) of them are energy or psychic-based beings:

It is possible that 'we' perceive the aliens to have a body, when they may not, in fact, have one at all. It is merely an analogy our psychology conjures up to try and make sense of the experience. Any clothing could also be part of that - either filling an aesthetic role that we can relate to, or serving as an analogy for some characteristic of the entity being experienced.

Not that I necessarily believe this is the case - but it would stand to reason that our minds would attempt to form an analogous representation of something we are experiencing to make it far easier to understand. We create analogies to describe the world of quantum physics - even though the analogies fall horribly short of the reality and math - they do well to convey the concept of something that is almost impossible for us to envision without it. Therefor - it would make sense that - if an alien encounter was of energetic/psychic nature - we quite possibly 'fill in the gaps' with similar ideas and concepts that help us identify with the other being.

Again - I'm not a big proponent of that theory - technology, itself, can nearly be magical - we don't need to make the creatures that use it magical, too. But that doesn't mean they can't be.

I think this is a valid argument. It would certainly explain most abduction cases.
