Has anyone else noticed that some of the most out there contactee claims almost always include time travel, and their multiple lives in the past and
future. The description of these past/future lives always sounds like an exercise in vanity. As in, either they were doing something glorious,
ground-breaking or something uniquely spiritual in their other births. Sounds more like a delusional person's desire to impress others, and probably
convince their own minds.
I was really disappointed, when John Mack's discussions of Alien abductions also gradually turned into fantasy stories. I remember one lady, who
claimed to him that she was some artist working on the pyramids in her previous life. She was not doing any labor work, but the artistic, painting
kind of work. Another guy, who had other-worldly sex with some Alien lady, who chose only him. It was sad to see that even though, he came out as an
honest person, as an observer he had started to believe these fantastic stories. I remember getting interested in his interviews, and then reading one
of his later books, which was just bad fantasy fiction laid out as real life interviews detailing extraordinary circumstances.
I don't remember names, since our mind refuses to remember the details of the ridiculous, but there was some Christian lady, who had quite a
following in the Alien abduction field, even though her descriptions sounded vain and self-aggrandizing. Now Eisenhower's grand-grand-daughter is
claiming that Obama went to Mars, and how she is in "special" contact with the Aliens.
Has anyone else noticed this?
These kind of claims take a huge dump on the genuine research in the Alien/UFO field. They end up getting quite popular too.
For fun: Even if lots of this stuff is beyond reason and our limited human experience, it is fair to let our imaginations explore. So, if we assume
that some of these stories are true:
1) How come Aliens seem to target the vain, not so bright, "prone to delusions" component of the human society?
2) If, in an imaginary scenario, these accounts were true, could it be a part of the deception process, since targeting the slower humans guarantees
a more stable dissemination of counter-information? Strong and delusional believers always do a better job of propagating a message, without enough
analysis and skepticism. Look at the crazier religious fundies. No matter how much they claim to love God, their stories always have a huge component
of being the special, chosen ones. And, they always do a pretty through job of spreading their ideologies, without critically analyzing them. Even
political campaigns always target the slower, impulsive voters with quick, simple messages, and fantastic tales of future. All the successful
campaigns feed their target audience's ego, and then turn them into believers.
3) How come very few of the contactees come out as genuinely humble? Most few the times, it is just a show, like many of the new age charlatans
trying to sell you the new cool spiritual path that they have "humbly" come across. You would think that such an extraordinary experience would make
them extremely humble.
4) How come most of these contactees do not really ahve much to add to the human thought process, when such an extra-ordinary experience would surely
add to their intelligence and knowledge.
5) How come they never have much to say about the technical aspects of their experience as well as the Aliens, but they have a lots of mumbo-jumbo to
say about their spiritual experience, their new connection with the universe etc.
Their accounts are funny to read, but extremely detrimental to the Alien/UFO field. The contactee accounts have added most to the ridicule that this
field often comes across. Though, to be honest, their are few accounts here and there, which are a good read, even if they are total fiction. Usually
written in a humble manner, focusing more on the Aliens, than the "special" self of the abductee/contactee.
