I wonder how we solved the many problems of today?

The story begins in a future world where global warming has resulted in global temperatures so high that in most of the world it is unsafe to be outside without special cooling gear during daylight hours. In a desperate bid to preserve humanity and ease population burdens on Earth, the UN has initiated a "draft" for colonizing the nearby planets, where conditions are so horrific and primitive that the unwilling colonists have fallen prey to a form of escapism involving the use of an illegal drug (CAN-D) in concert with "layouts". Layouts are physical props intended to simulate a sort of alternate reality where life is easier than either the grim existence of the colonist in their marginal off-world colonies, or even Earth, where global warming has progressed to the point that Antarctica is prime vacation resort territory. The illegal drug CAN-D allows people to "share" their experience of the "Perky Pat" (the name of the main female character in the simulated world) layouts. This "sharing" has caused a pseudo-religious cult or series of cults to grow up around the layouts and the use of the drug.
Leo Bulero, head of P.P. Layoutsand an "evolved" human (meaning someone who has undergone expensive genetic treatments by a German "doctor" which are supposed to push the client "forward" on an evolutionary scale, and which result in gross physical, as well as mental, modifications), hears rumors that Eldritch discovered an alien hallucinogen in the Prox system with similar properties to CAN-D, and that he plans to market it as "Chew-Z," with U.N. approval, on off-world colonies.

For me, this phenomenon is part of the collective subconscious, the Grey's are our most current form of the same energies that were once taking the forms of fairies, elves, gnomes, etc. They are concepts without a biological form of their own (in the sense that we percieve that to be), without much self consciousness, and moving within the stream of consciousness that we modern humans have pushed into the sub- or un- conscious realms. They are archetypes.
But that doesn't invalidate their existence as much as some might think right away. Our modern western society has gotten accustomed to separating what's "in your head" from "reality", and I think that is misleading.
What we shall continue to find out in science is that the two are tightly entwined and interdependant.
What is in that realm of "mind" has life of it's own, that influences and manipulates your own individual one, even if you are not aware of it! Wonderland is not a far away universe, and the entities such as the grey's have always been part of things.
