It's no secret that middle of the night, while you are sleeping alien encounters/abductions and
have many similarities. From the inability to move and intense fear to
auditory and visual hallucinations sleep paralysis by most accounts is an intense and frightening experience.
Perhaps aliens use this naturally occurring biological process in order to more easily abduct people. In the case of the greys where, unless they are
robotic in some way, are quite diminutive and presumably weak compared to the average human someone dealing with sleep paralysis would be an easy
Sleep researchers are close to being able to tell what you are dreaming when you are asleep. In fact, they are already at a point where they can
pretty closely pinpoint whether the dream you were having is sexual, intellectually driven, etc. With that said, it doesn't seem like much of a
stretch to me that beings with interstellar or even inter dimensional capabilities could easily prolong this naturally occurring process. Whether it
be through low level telepathy, or electrical impulses, etc.
What also makes this ideal for an alien abduction is the fact that you are already going to be questioning what you saw/felt, and many people will not
believe you simply because the symptoms mirror a sleep paralysis experience. So, in attempting to think from the perspective of a grey, this is the
ideal, and logical manner in which to abduct a human. Disabled, and already potentially hallucinating, so my appearance will either be written off by
the victim or most anyone that the experience is relayed to.
So are alien abductions really just sleep paralysis? In a way, yes. I think they are just exploiting are own biology.
That is not to say that every instance is actually an abduction. I simply think that using sleep paralysis would be the easiest means to abduct a
human, and keep them looking crazy.
I had figured someone else would have thought along these lines..... it's only a slight twist on the sleep paralysis or alien abduction argument, but
I didn't see any threads, or easily googled for that matter. If I missed them I do apologize, but perhaps it will make a good conversation anyhow.
