Have any of you considered plausible, the possibility that 'first encounters' and experiences of that nature are not physical, but psychic?
For instance, since ancient times people have been physically violated by spiritual forms. Its not common, but it happens. In Jungian psychology the
archetypes of the unconscious are said to possess a numinosity that can actually project and exert itself over physicality if its strong enough.
So, why cant alien experiences be encounters with demonic forms? In earlier times one who was spiritually 'defiled' became a prospect for demonic
possession or actually have experiences of his own demons in some apparition. The demon itself isnt anything more than a spiritual energy. Its nature
is evil, and so when it does 'manifest' it takes on the symbolic form of whatever its quality finds appropriate. Does everyone experience demons in
the same way? no. A buddhist will experience it in the terms of the culture he was born into, and therefore the 'archetype' or demon will borrow
that imagery to relate with the subject it intends to 'suckle from'. Thats another thing. Demons or negative emotions simply seek to live. and they
live by either inciting compulsions in people - whether that be in promoting negative behavior or habits, or in severe cases, an actual haunting or
In its more common manifestations, these demonic attacks occur solely in a spiritual ie; psychological manner. This could explain people with major
mental issues. But in particularly unique cases, demons actually possess enough numinosity to influence their physical environment. This describes
those poltergeist scenarios.
So, how come aliens cant be demons, borrowing popular imagery that accords with our modern, science fiction culture. Maybe the people who promote the
idea of aliens, are infact taking advantage of a spiritual reality that can be used to project any imagery that exists in the collective human
imagination (or unconscious). The image of aliens has been popularized enough that people actually begin to experience these demonic archetypes in
that 'language', not understanding that its simply an illusion, or symbolic projection from an unconscious, archetypal level of reality.
We know that there are certain 'hubs' where UFO experiences occur much more often. Likewise, there are particular spiritual places that give people
a good, positive feeling. There are houses that are haunted which contain the impression of an evil, past event which leaves people with a very evil
and uncomfortable feeling. Sometimes, if enough like minded people are together, they can collectively experience the same, archetypal reality. This
is what "fatima" was in portugal. And their are many other examples of this.
Is it really safe to believe in aliens when there is in fact a subtle, spiritual reality that interacts with this one, and can manifest in whatever
way the human imagination makes possible?
Wouldnt it be safer to alteast exercise caution, and skepticism, based on the reality of archetypes?
