It's just a shame it's all in your head?
No one has documented said Alien types, so therefore we can only assume they are made up?

I've been afraid of them ever since I was a young kid and watched the movie Communion - That creepy alien peeking around the corner did it for me.
Some years ago, while at home alone one night, I looked through a partially draped window in the kitchen leading to the backyard, and staring right back at me was a grey alien face. It scared me to such a degree that I froze in place and could only muster a "No!" in such a deep tone of voice that I couldn't replicate it if I had to today. I was terrified.
Then I realized it was reflection of a knot in the drapery. Lesson learned: If you fear something, and look for that which you fear, you will find it.
I suspect, regardless of whether grey aliens exist or not, that our fear of them is a primal one that goes pretty deep, and very far back in time. In fact I suspect the standard image of gray aliens has been invented by that primal fear within our minds and revised over time. I keep in mind though that we don't know for certain whether they exist or not.
A fear of a creature more evolved than you that can see into you, where you cannot see into it. That can control you, where you have no control of yourself and especially not of it. I think it's natural, and also that abductions are an in-the-mind experience only for some.edit on 30-7-2012 by Sek82 because: gray, grey, whatever
