A very well orchestrated, if not despicable practice that served its purpose of deflecting eyes and attention away from the secret projects (stealth
bomber and fighter as two examples) it was executed to protect.
Really? I should read more on these things but they tend to cause me some cognitive dissonance so I usually don't. I don't want to take the thread
offtopic but how could abduction stuff be used to cover for those? Or do you just mean claimed UFO sightings?
Some of my array of experiences, years later, I felt might have included stuff that had nothing to do with aliens or abduction but other excuses for
screen memories and missing time made to look like that. (It's a great cover since it's just likely to make anyone claiming it sound insane.) This
probably should have occurred to me long before it did, given my involvement with hypnosis for a dozen years before that and some of its people.
Not to mention many of my experiences were suggestive. In my journals and following case study from them, I several times got into the wondering about
multiple personality disorder, there were several indicators, except that I did not have the kind of early childhood which at the time was believed to
be required for that. Since then I think there is some evidence that this is not actually required and/or can be forcibly recreated hypnotically. At
the time of the experiences, my first caught 'screen memories' were long before any of the weird stuff started happening (assuming you don't
consider a screen memory weird lol), years before when I'd been working by the navy base (which I mention only because it was the same city which,
years later during those experiences, I once found myself lost in the middle of driving, when I'd been 20-30 minutes away in another city an instant
before far as I knew).
Between then and now I've done a lot of intuitive work (let's just call it meditation) which has resulted in quite a number of what
feel-like-memories (and have consistent elements) except I have no place to put them. Well I do but it would require "assuming" that all the missing
time during that period of my life is where they belong. Most of them are terrifying, most involve threat, violence, death, guys in olive khakis,
caves clearly natural but further built-out, stuff I've got no conscious memory of. Weird and dreadful and worrying stuff. (The first time I saw the
movie "The Long Kiss Goodnight" I was a freak for days, I think it triggers something in me, that topic of suppressed personality/memory and
violence, many of the memories were horrible. Eventually, yet more years later, I intentionally did a lot of psychology work with myself to attempt to
clear and integrate all this, once I realize it didn't matter how much it might be 'just imagination', it was clearly powerful enough to be having
a real effect on me anyway. I think I am pretty cool with it now.)
It's been twenty years since the case study. I'm getting around to publishing the case study more formally maybe next year, at my best friend's
insistence, maybe just on amazon kindle or something. When fairly recently rereading and adding a couple chapters near the end, I think I feel
differently about some of it now, just some of the experience, a few. I think there is very likely some ufology-used-as-cover-memories for stuff going
on that amounts to black or transparent ops.
However, since most everyone I see talking about such things appears to be a complete lunatic, the last thing I want to do is join them there, so I
added just a mention of it in the new version, because it seemed dishonest to leave it out, but didn't go into it much. I actually didn't know
until probably 10 years after all that when I read something online that one of my experiences in particular sounds like total textbook of the
"electronic mind control" stuff -- thank god only one of them or I'd probably be in a padded cell somewhere now.
One theory I had (in retrospect) was based on my 'awareness' during some 'experiences' that our people (me, but my species as a whole) went
through this kind of stuff a lot but it was all under the radar of our awareness. The theory that spawned was that maybe when people encounter
something which affects their belief systems about the topic -- from a UFO sighting, to covert psych work on them, to the sincere account of someone
they respect, whatever, even if they don't remember it consciously -- that maybe the shift in subconscious belief systems / validation actually
starts opening up the ability for recall.
I've met several people who had a nuts&bolts UFO encounter often with others, after which they began gradually remembering a variety of weird stuff
from over the course of their life, and becoming aware of present-time odd experiences. From the hypnotic angle you just have to wonder if the reality
is just that their belief system had no room for it at first, which was my observation about myself long ago, and once it did, once there were labels
and some kind of external validation no matter how small, all the sudden all those mental database entries that looked like NULL without a label
started showing up as a valid part of the memory-set.
I think the part of this topic that I still find the most weird is that here I was thinking I was alone in the universe, some totally unique crazy
experience, and later when I went to the net (compuserve back then) and tentative shared an account, people all but yawned. Yeah yeah, that's old
news, lots of people have talked about XYZ. My mind was boggled. "No way!" I mean to me, that was a huge validation, if someone I never met actually
recounted the same kind of experience. I had one very intense experience which was too weird to be anything but bizarre and unique to me, I was sure.
And it "blended" every element you can blend -- from dreaming, to faery myths, to spiritual stuff, to either parallel world or future world, to
alien stuff. What the hell do I do with that? If it's one thing at one point, how does it become another at another point, without ALL points being
During that experience, I (as usual) got 'lucid' and (as usual) got my ass kicked totally by the blonde men (they are way too enthusiastic about
that). One of them reached to his back and pulled out this thing that looked like an oxygen mask -- my mom died when I was 9, and was wearing one when
I last saw her, so I knew what they looked like. But it was clear not blue, and had no tubes. I somehow "knew" it was really bad for my brain and I
held my breath. Then a super tall telepathic bug female told him he was "overreacting as usual" and that it was "harmful and unnecessary" and she
saved me. (I would often find myself talking to the bugs. But mind misdirected from their bodies or I'd freak out.) I 'came to' at precisely the
same time every morning for eons, and I was wide-eyed wide-awake with full memory that time. But how to be 'there' for a 'physical' thing like
that if I came to in bed?
Bilocation is the only tech that could make it make sense.
Later I found Travis Walton's story. Blonde guys. Oxygen mask-like thing. I was definitely not familiar with it IMO. I hyperventilated when I heard
it just from the 'validation.' Then cried! LOL. That is way too weird to be coincidence.
As a note, though, I found the movie fire in the sky, later, confusing and the elements either unfamiliar or very differently interpreted.
