I appreciate you responding to my post. Thanks!
You sound like you have done a lot of research into this sort of stuff. Same as myself really. I find it really interesting! I also see it as being
very important in the grand scheme of things. Most people don't unfortunately and you don't get a chance to discuss other people’s ideas too much.
Or if you do, people defend their ideas with so much passion they don’t listen or aren’t open to even contemplating a new viewpoint. At least that
is what I have found.
Having said that, I don't think anyone truly has all the answers to what this phenomenon is. Anyone who is interested in the topic does their
research and comes to their own conclusions - which if most people are realistic about it are really just intellectual beliefs which we rationalize as
the truth up to a certain point.
I think people are coming around these days to think of aliens as non-physical or interdimensional. As opposed to 50 years ago where they were all
physical beings from another planet. Maybe the truth is a combination of both which makes it that much harder to really work out the truth. Throw in a
few different parties with different motivations and individual circumstances and getting to the truth becomes extremely convoluted and has layer upon
layer of apparent misdirection.
I do believe in a non physical reality. I do believe in non physical entities both good and bad and all shades in between. I do believe that there can
be some sort of communication between realities. I believe that hallucinogenic plants can help some people to access altered states which enables
communication. Whether you can trust their experiences being under the influence is a valid point you make but whose subjective experience can you
trust really? Experiences by their nature are subjective and inevitably colored by someone’s beliefs or prevailing culture. I reckon this is
heightened in the non physical. An interpretation of something (i.e. an entity or experience) usually goes on to re-enforce beliefs too i.e. I saw an
entity with the appearance of a grey alien which I interpret as a demon which validates all of my Christian beliefs sort of thing. When realistically
the person only saw something foreign to their experience which they have little to no understanding of but use this to validate all of their
I think the non physical does not have the same rules as the physical. How could it? How does a non physical being interact with a physical being? One
way (maybe the only way) would be to present itself in the physical and have a “physical” interaction. A physical being would find it very hard to
interact in a non physical way. It is just too foreign for us. We need to physically see or hear things even in the apparent non-physical realm.
Therefore the non physical being has to take on physical attributes to communicate. If it is inherently evil, we may see it as a grey alien, whereas
hundreds of years ago someone may have interpreted the same being as a demon. What if from our end, the only way our minds can comprehend or
communicate with a non physical entity is to interpret it with physical attributes. Then the physical attributes you relate to or interpret are
heavily influenced by your culture or beliefs. This is your point about shape-shifters. If they are non-physical they don’t have inherent physical
As far as motivations for non physical entities interacting with us well its open to speculation. I agree with you that there could be some deception
going on but I don’t think it is a simple black or white answer. I think there are infinite shades of grey in between and to simplify it down to
good vs evil or god vs satan may be an oversimplification. But hey who knows really.
