My name is John Burke. I’m an investigative reporter and a certified hypnotherapist. I’m confident we’re being visited what I don’t know are their intentions Los Angeles California a city where nothing is ever as it seems but sometimes a place where horrifying stories of UFOs and alien abductions are very real for every up there’s a down for every ging there’s a yang I mean you take the city of Los Angeles the weather is absolutely perfect but there’s so many cars are practically chokes the life out of the day it’s incredible amount of wealth and blinding poverty based on whatever Street you happen to cross it’s not all fancy cars and movie stars either there’s an underbelly an underbelly that really Foster’s the UFO alien abduction movement I guess there are easy targets for ridicule hidden trauma masked under some fantastic illusion I don’t know maybe what’s easy is dismissing it as nonsense maybe what takes courage is confronting the demon Wendy she’s really straddling reality and a dream and trying to come to terms with what’s what and right now it’s so disorienting to her I’m not sure she knows which one is which her first UFO sighting was in 2010 near Indianapolis since then she claims to have seen dozens I was with her following like an angel by all accounts he was a normal existence it was a normal Midwestern existence I was very happy life was very normal and I think when the first people asked me what was one of the first signs or one of the things you noticed and I was joking with my husband one night and I said if I didn’t know better I would say there was a star following me describe one of the more remarkable images that you’ve ever seen in this guy I was standing in my backyard and I usually don’t have feelings or I can’t fill if there’s gonna be any UFO experiences or events but one night I felt like there was something that was going to happen I went to my backyard and I wasn’t looking in the sky I was looking toward the woods that are off to the side in my backyard and sure enough I see this it looks like this enormous blue teardrop come out of my woods and it’s probably 50 feet high poop it goes up to the sky and just stays there and it is a perfect diamond had a pink interior and had a red bar across it and it was it was magnificent it was beautiful it was non scary you would think something like that would be terrifying but I was in such awe now this doesn’t just happen in your backyard does it I mean when you travel they show up when I travel they show up I go back and forth of Los Angeles and I’ve seen things and as I travel the country or I’ve even gone to Europe and I’ve seen them there’s there’s got to be something you know I never felt chosen I don’t like that word but there’s something there that maybe I know or a lesson that somebody I know knows that that needs to get out thoughts on meeting Wendy for the first time you know you can take a look at UFO pictures and UFO footage all day long but it’s not until you stand across from somebody and you look in their eyes and you see that certainty and that uncertainty at the same time the intensity the experience that it really begins to haunt you obviously in the middle of a journey this all really picked up just a short time ago when you’re trying to put all the pieces together what next what do you do now I want to know more I want to know there’s certain nights that are enormous to me I want to know what happened there nights that I I’m not sure about the word abduction are being taken I don’t know and I always try to leave a very open mind I’m very curious about it there’s some questions that I would like answers to there’s some nights that didn’t make a lot of sense to me you know a lot of people when they’re in a position similar to yours they’ll go to hypnosis to learn more is that something you’d be open to I would I think that’s our next it’s so far I’ve managed to gain Wendy’s trust but right now all I have are photographs and stories so I’ve convinced her to come to a world-renowned hypnotherapist who deals in alien abductions now she has an event during this hypnotherapy session we may be tapping into something that she doesn’t even know exists in her life how many people have been abducted in your opinion over the last 10 20 years it’s in the millions millions it’s worldwide it’s not just here in the United States it’s a worldwide because I get contacted by people all over the world we are being engaged by alien beings from we don’t know where why though why are they contact why are they interacting their main agenda is to create a hybrid race between they need human DNA with their alien DNA and they’re creating these hybrids they’ve been doing this for a very long time as you are allowing yourself now to completely and totally relax we’re gonna begin by taking a trip back in time to explore a memory just feel yourself going back during that time going to your house I reached for the string to pull the blinds down and I am taken in by a light so enormous and I could see into it and as you’re seeing into it describe what you’re seeing the whole room has like this yellow green hue to it and they’re kind of it’s like the colors are off verbalize it Wendy I’m right here it’s dark earthen like it should be like it’s darker than a room and it’s more like it’s not straight like room like it’s curved kind of there’s like like these tentacle things like beams not beams but jellyfish and as you’re seeing into it describe what you’re seeing its blinding but there’s something in there I’m so scared what they want No who are they whoever they Wendy who are you referring to my head you get a sense of that first and behind you it’s a few milk voice which catches a North Pole and is the female voice talking to you yep we don’t know what they were missing these important in numbers in letters and we will put people in front of you and you will know where the words that they speak three just feel your body starting to come around for your eyes are opening and five then we’ve opened up the subconscious it doesn’t serve any purpose for someone to keep holding this in like there’s a lot more it’s very real to her that was very clear in the room my question to you is is it is it real to you do you think that she is interacted with aliens you know John after 22 years of doing this definitely as soon as I saw her body language as soon as I saw her the tears that came forward that the raw emotion and the fear this is very very typical Yvonne’s in a curious spot no question Wendy session revealed an intense emotional experience but was it abduction I can’t tell if she believes what she just heard or if it even matters I can tell you she cares she cares about her clients being healed and happy and living balanced good lives dr.
Leir is a podiatrist by trade but has found himself at the forefront of actual physical evidence of this alien abduction phenomenon the implant dr. Leir has worked out his own theories as to purpose in origin he doesn’t care who he upsets he doesn’t care what boat he rocks all he wants is the truth and for the truth to be known what about the implants how many of you extracted and we’ve done 16 surgeries today and prettier 17 objects I just want to touch on the idea of a hybrid program do you endorse that yes I believe that there is such a thing as a hybrid program a large amount of the abductee program has to do with re manipulating our DNA into different species so the implants manipulate DNA I think what they’re there is gathering data so they can broadcast this data remotely when they want it recently we’ve come to the conclusion that the skeletal structure the body is being used for an antenna because it contains all a constituents they would make up you know I’m Metallica what is it that makes you think that you’re involved with the air abduction program at all I feel like I’m being hunted I feel like they know I’m at do you have any idea where this implant might be just because I’ve heard you know very loud tones and my right ear I would say probably in my ear perhaps we’re gonna do some pretty funky old tests and measurements to see if your body is admitting anything we’re actually looking at Wendy’s leg with an ultraviolet light and anything that begins to shine secure your color is what we consider fluorescence sometimes these colors can be orange or pink our people ever tracked in a different way that different well we don’t think these devices have anything to do with tracking anybody we know now that our own genetic laboratories that each our own our own DNA has it’s electronic signature you know Walter this one yeah it’s all what we’re doing it’s very firm to make a sale in the waters Pete this is a Gauss meter Gauss meter picks up electromagnetic fields and we find for example and then plants they have met as much as 10 milligauss that’s about eight milligauss is coming out around here what does that mean could be an object which is really saying something electromagnetic field to be on the safe side how we should get an x-ray maybe both ears what’s light using a little radio density right here there’s one yelling input we know that the radio density in the spot is not supposed to be there so it could be an implant I have no words right now I’m not sure what I’m feeling I’m surprised to even see anything at all and even the possibility of it being an implant it’s something I always thought about but maybe I just didn’t want to go there because it’s just another layer to this entire story this is a worldwide phenomena and the people of this planet are being kept in the dark there is a light at the end of the tunnel but it could be a train heading right for us now Wendy finished her session really by looking down and she said there’s more do you agree yes how much more John this experience doesn’t stop its ongoing it may lay dormant for say a few years but it’s going to happen

The next episode in our series covers Brazil’s UFO investigations. The government of Brazil has openly acknowledged the UFO phenomenon since the 1950’s and has released a number of UFO files from their investigations. From 1969 up until 1972 Brazil had an official UFO research organization called The System for the Investigation of Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon. The investigations were public and the organization would often work with civilian UFO researchers. However, when the United States closed Project Blue Book the Brazilian government soon followed.
On August 9, 2010 the Commander of the Brazilian Air Force, Brigadier Junichi Saito, established Regulation 551/GC3 for UFO disclosure in Brazil. It reads “As of this date, all reports of UFO sightings sent to the Brazilian Air Force bases and filed at the Brazilian Airspace Defense Command, in Brasilia, should be sent to the National Archives, where they can be known to any person.” A leading source for UFO research in Brazil is ‘Revista UFO.’ AJ Gevaerd, a former professor of chemistry, founded the publication in March of 1988. In 2002 the magazine began a partnership with the Brazilian Center for Flying Saucer Research to produce content. Presently Gevaerd serves as the editor and has a vast editorial board consisting of about 500 members in Brazil and over 50 other countries. The website features blogs written by various researchers, videos, documentaries and photo galleries with photos from cases that currently under investigation. Brazil’s military has released some their UFO files in response to the ‘UFO – Freedom of Information Now’ campaign started in April 2004 by the Brazilian UFO magazine.
The files that are available can be downloaded from the website ufo.com.br. The disclosure process started in May of 2005 when a group of Ufologist met with the Brazilian Air Force to discuss sightings and fully examine classified documents. During that meeting the researchers were informed on procedures for UFO detection, they were also able to visit air traffic control rooms, and review 3 historical cases. Brazilian Ufologist AJ Gevaerd was part of the group and at the 2011 International UFO Congress he spoke about his involvement.
The first case the group was able to review was from 1954; it was the testimony from pilot Nagib Ayub, the head of Varig airlines. Along with crewmembers, he observed a luminous object lingering near the airliner for about two hours in the airspace above Rio Grande do Sul. The second was a well-known case was from 1977, involving dozens of sightings on the island of Colares in the Amazon forest. The group was able to view over a 100 photos from the military investigation codenamed ‘Operation Saucer.’ The local residents reported being attacked by luminous balls of light; they described them as ‘light vampires.’ After an encounter the individuals became very ill.
Victims told the doctor that they felt that orb seemed to suck their blood therefore the locals gave the phenomenon the nickname ‘chupa-chupa.’ Operation Saucer lasted four months, from September to December. The full report allegedly contains over 500 photos and 3,000 witness interviews. In July 1997 Revista UFO published extensive articles on the case with interviews from the Air Force Commander in charge of the operation, Captain Uyrange Hollanda who passed away in October of 1997. According to Hollanda, “we detected at least nine forms of objects. Probes, spaceships, flying saucer shape.” In 2005 the History Channel featured the story on UFO Files: Brazil’s Roswell. AJ Gevaerd also spoke about this case at the 2011 International UFO Congress. The third case was from May 1986; it has been called “The Official Night of UFOs in Brazil.” As many as 20 objects, each measuring over 100 meters in diameter, jammed the Brazilian air traffic control systems over 3 of Brazil’s largest cities: Rio De Janeiro, Sao Jose dos Campos and Sao Paulo. Several jets were sent to intercept with out any success. Brazil’s Minister of Aeronautics, Brigadier General Otávio Moreira Lima, spoke about the incident and said, “The radar detects only solid metallic bodies and heavy clouds.
There were no clouds or conventional aircraft in the region. The sky was clear. Radar doesn’t have optical illusions.” The Brazilian Aeronautics Commission report was not released. However, the accounts of air force pilots and radar controllers were published widely in the press and later studied by Brazilian researchers. AJ Gevaerd found these documents to be a great confirmation. The Brazilian Committee of UFO researchers continues to work with the military has established a standing committee of UFO researchers. In April 2013 the researchers were able to meet with the leaders at the Brazilian Ministry of Defense. Researchers are still searching for information relating to controversial incidents. The Varginha Case is one of the most well-known cases in Brazilian Ufology. Canadian Ufologist Stanton Freidman said, “Varginha has the makings of a cosmic Watergate.” According to media reports, on January 20, 1996 three women saw an unknown creature while walking to their home. They described it as being about 5 feet tall with a thin monkey-like body and V-shaped feet.
It had a large head with 3 lumps on it, brown skin and big red bug-like eyes with a strong unpleasant odor. The Brazilian media was saturated with speculation. There were soon rumors of other creatures, UFO sightings and alleged military involvement. The Brazilian government denies capturing the creature during the incident, but some researchers have their doubts. Commemorative statues of the creature can be found all around the city of Varginha. Another famous Brazilian UFO sighting took place on Trindade Island. On January 16,1958 Admiral Saldanha was conducting geophysical research on a Navy training ship with professional photographer Almiro Baraúna on board. Around noon a UFO came toward the island at high speed, hovered for a moment, went behind a peak and then went back toward the sea. Baraúna managed to get four photos of the object. The navy’s initial investigation on the case was kept secret, but when the files reached Brazil’s President they were released and the photos made worldwide headlines.
The official witness reports have not been made public but the Brazilian Ministry of Defense said the documents were going through the proper procedures for release and are to be released in accordance to Brazil’s Access to Information Act. .

Have actuall individuals really been abducted by aliens? Let’s explore that! ♪ Good… Mythical… Morning! – The world is a huge place. – (usually) Oh, yes. – We don’t also know how huge it is or how big it’s becoming. Current quotes state there are – 100 octillion movie stars. – That’s quite a few. – That’s one with 29 zeros after it. – Big quantity. So odds are there’s some other life online. – But the question is: Has that life… – receive united states? … come in contact with us? There’s many individuals whom state “Yes.” Now, physically, – we don’t think this has occurred, but… – Me neither.
Significant stories that I’ve heard prior to are like uncle Hank… you know, the guy who has no hair over their head but he’s many hair in the straight back, and he’s a koozie with him constantly. Hehas an alien abduction tale. – Yeah. – But not all alien abduction stories are – like Uncle Hank’s. – Mm-mm. They are sometimes more advanced and much harder to just dismiss. And we’re gonna be talking today about– we each have a story we think is more difficult to dismiss – than your uncle with the koozie. – Mm-hm. Yeah. So we’ll start. I’ve discovered… This is among the first alien abduction stories, and we’m going to go with this one because we think there’s some convincing things to it. Postman Barney Hill and their wife Betty had been driving back from Canada. They had been in Brand New Hampshire. It ended up being at night around 10 P.M. They see this celebrity that’s moving erratically. – Okay. – (gruffly) That ain’t no celebrity.
(normally) So they pull over at a rest area. Now let me personally point out– – That’s nice. – Here’s a picture of couple. They’re maybe not on remainder area within… this is a posed image, maybe not at a rest area. – Okay. – (Link) Would this couple lie to you? – (Rhett) They appear trustworthy! – (Link) They appear trustworthy. Look at – the dachshund in Betty’s lap. We mean– – (Rhett) Okay, he’s maybe not going to tell a lie. And he’s maybe not going to suffer any liars or stay in the lap of a liar, so that’s point – one right there. – which medical! – They visit the remainder area. – They have a dachshund.
Barney gets out their binoculars and begins evaluating this thing. He estimates– – He had binoculars? – Yeah, definitely he did. – had been they around their neck already? – naturally. He’s a postman – with a dachshund. – He estimated it ended up being a 40-foot-long craft with flashing colors and it had windows. As it ended up being getting closer to him– because yes, it ended up being getting closer to him– he could see there had been beings inside it. – Okay. – Gets back in the automobile and states, “They’re going to capture united states!” And then they start driving off. They start to experience beeping, buzzing, then there’s like a tingling sensation and a vibration – of automobile… – They had been at Brookstone in the – therapeutic massage chairs.
– (team laughs) – No, they had been in their automobile. – (silly vocals) We’re in Brookstone, baby! (laughs) They had been driving! They had been driving down the road then suddenly, they enter what they describe as a state of their minds being dulled. – Oh! – So their minds are dulled. And then… – Okay. – There’s another set of beeping and buzzing, and we’m suggesting what we think occurred is they were– (slurps) – sucked up in– – That’s everything think occurred, huh? – sucked up into the, into the craft. – Well that’s what they think occurred. No, they don’t know at this point. So they keep driving, but they understand that they are now, apparently instantaneously, 35 kilometers south of in which – they had started. – Whoa.
With no recollection of traveling those 35 kilometers. – That’s maybe not Brookstone. – They arrive at home then they start to notice that they have some uncontrollable impulses and thoughts. Like, Betty’s packing a suitcase and placing it by the door. She’s having nightmares of UFO abductions. Barney ended up being compelled to check their genitalia. – Pshhh! – (giggles) Okay, fine. That’s quite a compulsion. That is a healthy compulsion to check it every now and again… – Yeah, yeah, yeah, it is. – (team laughs) – But… (laughs) – You should check it.
I mean… He missed any such thing, but he ended up being compelled to check it. – Yeah. – And only after the beeping and – buzzing and… – Yeah, right, okay. – therefore, get this. – we get ya, Barney. We realize. – Betty calls the local Air Force base. – Then? – And they reply! – (silly vocals) Hello, Air Force! – we mean, like… – We don’t have any therapeutic massage chairs! (laughs) How is this feasible? But really, she calls the Air Force base. – Major Paul W. Henderson states… – (usually) genuine guy. “The UFO ended up being also confirmed by our radar.” After she describes their experience. And that just means “unidentified flying item.” He said, “The UFO ended up being also confirmed by our radar.” – Okay, fine. – Then they decide to go through… They decide to try to account for what they think become two hours of lost time and 35 miles.
They enter regressive hypnotherapy and they both have the same stories. They’re drawing sketches. This is a sketch that Barney drew of “the frontrunner,” he called it. – (Rhett) Hm! It’s a snake with a beret! – (laughs) Yeah. – (French accent) It’s a French snake! – He’s a postman, he’s maybe not a– – Ooh los angeles los angeles, Barney! – He’s maybe not an artiste. So, basically, they visited the conclusion that they’ve been abducted by aliens. They remember through regressive hypnotherapy that they took their epidermis, hair, nail – samples, physical fluid samples… – Oh! – Here’s the thing, guys. – we get you, Barney. This is a typical alien abduction tale, except it ended up being the first one! – Appropriate. – And they kinda had to figure it out.
They had beenn’t building on other previous stories. – others emulated them. – Even that image, that image of – snake with the beret. Totally original. – Totally– really, completely original. – Yeah. – The Air Force confirmed there ended up being one thing regarding radar! And the da-shund. The datsun, individuals! – How do you state that… dog? – You state datsun, you don’t state da-shund, – we don’t think. – That’s how you spell it, though! – we mean, think… – so’s what it precipitates to for them.
– (considerably) Believe the dashund. – They have a dashund. – All right, I’ve got a story. – They corroborated, you know? – In their regression! – This is the Travis Walton tale. A very famous– most likely the most famous UFO abduction, alien abduction tale back from November of 1975. He’s clearing woods, type of a blue collar guy. – He’s clearing woods. – Literally, he’s wearing a blue collar… – (Rhett) Yes. – (Link) and plaid top. (Rhett) Yeah. He ended up being a logger. He’s clearing woods in Arizona with seven other guys. They complete their change, they enter a truck. Big vehicle, seven guys. They’re going down the road and they see, quote, “a luminous item – shaped like a flattened disc.” Travis– – Saucer. We call that a flying– (snaps) Saucer. Travis gets away and draws near the saucer. Of course he does because he’s a lumberjack. And the remaining guys remain in the truck. They see a– speaking of blue collar– a blue beam hit him.
Beam of light knocks him down. They panic, others six guys. They drive off. After sometime, they’re like, possibly we should get – get Travis! – They ditched him. Wouldn’t you!? They’re scared! They return. He’s no place to be found. So they straight away visit the authorities in the nearest city. They state, “Our buddy–” They tell ’em the entire tale. “Our buddy ended up being hit with this beam of light.” And they’re like, “These dudes are peanuts! But possibly one thing’s going on.” They start a manhunt. It comes to an end up being the largest manhunt in Arizona history. – Travis-hunt. – Five times of selecting Travis, but simultaneously, they’re like, “naturally these guys don’t really experience a UFO – situation,” appropriate? – They killed him.
They suspected that they murdered him. They teamed up on him and murdered him in their typical logger way of telling the tale ended up being, (southern accent) “Hey man, suppose he got abducted by aliens. That’ll be believable.” (southern accent) Blue beam o’ light… allow’s get our tale right. (usually) therefore they polygraph them, give them a lie detector test. Five from six – of guys pass the test. – (usually) Oh, therefore the sixth one – killed him. – No. And among the guys whom ended up being there– it ended up being just inconclusive. He don’t complete the test because he ended up being type of – emotionally shaken up.
– naturally he ended up being. – Now, the guys whom administered– – He just killed a man. administered these tests said, “We are completely convinced that these males believe that he ended up being abducted by aliens. They saw– they did not kill him. They – believe that this is what has occurred. – Okay. At the same time, what happens to Travis? Well, five times pass and suddenly he wakes up in front of a local gasoline section with an incredibly detailed story– – nude. – of what had occurred. We think he nevertheless ended up being clothed. He nevertheless had that blue top on, we’m pretty sure. Right here’s what he remembers: first, it’s an incredibly detailed tale. We’m just going to supply some of features. First of all, they don’t kill him, because he’s back. – He’s back. – therefore there you get. He remembers being on a table thinking he’s in a hospital space, but the he looks up and he sees aliens that, quote, “looked like fetuses…” – Ew. – caring for him.
So the old fetus alien, you know? He gets scared, maybe not because they’re aliens, but because they’re – fetus aliens. – Oh, yeah. And he picks up a glass cylinder on a shelf and starts yelling at them and – waving the glass cylinder. – A flask? And they leave. Simply a glass cylinder. We don’t know what that’s for. Like a luminary that you place like some… We don’t have a picture. It ended up being regarding alien ship.
– Okay. – we’m going off Travis’s testimony right here. – Got it. – He waves it at them like a magic wand. They get from the space, then he states, (claps) “we got this spaceship to myself.” – (laughs) – He walks down a hallway, – goes into a room… – (team laughs) – He’s a penguin! – And there’s a room with a chair in the – center with a lever. – naturally there’s! Or a lever. This is like a cartoon. We gotta state, Travis, at this point it appears like a cartoon. However know what? We’m going to continue. – A barber seat! – He enters the barber chair.
He brings the lever and suddenly it begins a light show of movie stars like he’s at – the planetarium, basically. – (laughs) He should’ve had a woman with him, ’cause this would’ve been a great first date. You know, among my most useful first dates ended up being on planetarium. – Learn the girl a little something. – Yeah, it’s like, (silly vocals) Oh, examine the movie stars. Look how small we are. We’re therefore small, but me personally therefore are here – alongside each other in the planetarium. – No one will know any such thing we do. (laughs) (usually) Yeah, that’s appropriate. That’s what happened. There ended up being no date, though. Fundamentally he begins thinking, “perhaps we should escape right here.” He begins travelling the craft more. He finds this, quote, “tall individual character wearing blue overalls and a glassy helmet,” we don’t know what that ended up being about. But he finds more of those guys. They become – placing a gas mask– – Farmer. Farmer aliens. Yeah, with glass helmets.
They place a gas mask– – Deep sea scuba diving farmer aliens. – gasoline mask on him. He gets knocked-out and next thing he remembers, he wakes up on gasoline section. Petrol mask, gasoline – section, we don’t know, possibly, ha ha. – But he still– maybe not. (laughs) And he believes that two hours have passed away, but five times have passed away. Whoa. Does he nevertheless have the flask in their hand? Like he involves and… He did not bring the glass cylinder with him. Maybe not a flask, Link. And he did not have the lever with him. But he’d a story that he turned into a – guide called The Walton Enjoy, – He had quite a story. that then ended up being turned into a TV show, a long-running TV show called The Waltons. (numerous voices) Good night, Jim Bob! No, in fact it ended up being turned into a movie called Fire in Sky back in the 90’s. He is a celebrity amongst this community. You’ll get on the web, you search this guy on YouTube and there’s him talking at UFO conventions.
He’s nevertheless like a celebrity whom tells their tale. Most of these guys, within the team, have maintained their testimony. There’s one guy that’s some squirrelly, but many – of them have maintained their testimony. – He’s nevertheless in prison for murdering him. And he’s attempting to get Fire in Sky remade… – Sequel? Or a remake? – ‘Cause he desires it become accurate. – He desires it become accurate. – Like, visually accurate? – Or the tale ended up beingn’t appropriate? – He desires everything to be– – He desires the flask become perfectly. – (laughs) – He desires the fetal aliens become appropriate. – Why should we think this one? We mean, there had been no binoculars. There’s no dachshund. Well, there’s a movie, though. We mean, he made it into a movie and published a book.
– Appropriate, appropriate, appropriate, okay. – And he’s a mustache. He’s a very, – really dense mustache. – therefore there’s nothing– he’s maintained their mustache over the past 40 years in the same way he’s – maintained their tale, Link. – Oh? we mean, if the mustache began to give slightly, we’d be, “Oh, we don’t think you,” but if you keep the mustache strong, the tale remains strong. – we don’t know. We’m grasping. – But he wears a suit now. – we’m grasping at… glass cylinders right here. – Yeah, let’s– – And levers. Inside planetarium. Pthbbt! – therefore, Barney and Betty, you got my vote. – we don’t know. Debate away. – Ha! Debate away! – Many thanks for taste and commenting. – You know what time it is. We’m Doug from Mesa, Arizona and it’s time to spin the Wheel of Mythicality. Nine from ten individuals report that wearing a Good Mythical Morning t-shirt while viewing Good Mythical Morning offers them a better experience! Click to Good Mythical More, in which we state what it would simply take for united states – to in fact think in alien abductions. – Wow, you got plenty going on over there.
Get a Mythical Mug… wear the top this way if you want to. – (Rhett) In a world… without pancakes. – Oh. (considerably) In a world without pancakes… Eat a waffle. We mean… it’s pretty… apparent. .

Thank you to everybody for coming. So this is an overview of what I’m going to do. First of all I’m just going to set forward some preliminaries, a couple of things I’m going to assume without argument, then I’m going to give a brief overview of the kind of things that alien abductees say about their night time experiences, then I’ll give a bit more information about the kind of beliefs that they have. Then the serious stuff starts. I’ll ask how we’re going to explain why people have these strange beliefs.
I’ll suggest that we can explain it by appeal to some strange experiences they have and then I’ll ask whether that’s going to be enough. Actually it turns out it’s not going to be enough because some people have these experiences and don’t go on to develop the belief, so we need some other stuff involved in our explanation, and right at the end I’ll just gesture towards some other contributory factors which might be helping us explain why people have these beliefs.
OK, so just preliminaries to start. One note and two assumptions. The first is just a terminological note: so I’ll refer to subjects who believe they’ve been abducted by aliens as ‘abductees’. You’re an abductee if you believe you’ve been abducted, not if you’ve actually been abducted. So what ‘abductee’ is doing there is picking out what beliefs somebody has, not what has actually happened to them. So if you’ve actually been abducted you’re an abductee, but also if you believe you’ve been abducted, you’re an abductee. Related to that I’m going to assume that all beliefs in alien abduction are false. That’s to say that I’m going to assume that no human being has ever been abducted by aliens. I think that’s a safe assumption but I can go slightly weaker for people who don’t think that’s a safe assumption. So let’s say there are abductees proper, people who have really been abducted by aliens. Take that set of people, put them aside – I’m not interested in those people in this talk – I’m interested in those people who believe they’ve been abducted but they haven’t actually been abducted.
So if you want to leave open the possibility that some of these people have true beliefs, put those over there, I’m not interested in those people. I’m interested in this set of people who believe they’ve been abducted but they haven’t. OK, so focusing in on that set, my second assumption is that these guys aren’t lying. So they really believe their claims, they’re not trying to seek media attention or anything like that.
These people have not been abducted by aliens but they sincerely believe that they have. As I say, I’m not going to argue for those assumptions but you can ask me about them afterwards. OK, so a strange encounter. So in this section I just have a couple of abductee reports from a study by McNally and Clancy in 2005. So here’s the first one: ‘a female abductee was lying on her back. When she woke up from a sound sleep her body was completely paralysed and she experienced a sensation of levitating above her bed. Her heart was pounding, her breathing was shallow, she felt tense all over, she was terrified. She was able to open her eyes and when she did so, she saw three beings standing at the foot of her bed in the glowing light’. In the second report, ‘a male abductee awoke in the middle of the night seized with panic. He was entirely paralysed and felt electricity shooting throughout his body.
He felt his energy draining away from him. He could see several alien beings standing around his bed’. So now I want to talk about what these people come to believe when these experiences happen to them. So here are some common features of the alien abduction narrative. So typically what happens is that someone will have a night time experience like this, then they might seek out memory recovery sessions by hypnosis and then they get all these extra details about what happened to them. So common features, (this is from 1987), include being captured and examined by aliens, communicating with them often telepathically, seeing the spaceship, visiting other worlds, being communicated important information, and being returned to the point of abduction.
More recently, roughly the same kind of thing. These guys are doing the same thing to us. Common themes include being a participant in a hybrid breeding programme which can involve extraction of semen, sex with aliens, meeting hybrid offspring, and being subject to medical procedures on spaceships. So these are the typical things that are reported by abductees. So now I want to talk about two cases which are documented in John Mack’s book, Abduction. So he does the memory recovery sessions and he endorses the abduction explanation and these are from his point of view talking about these subjects who have had these experiences. So this is Scott’s story. So Scott’s room had no door, ‘and unexplained light was coming in from the direction of the adjacent clothes/washer dryer room. Scott’s breath was now coming in loud, short gasps as he spoke of “six” of “them” with “boxy” and “angular” heads that were “after me”.
Then he saw a “round-tipped rod” pushing towards him which Scott related to how he was anaesthetised. “They know I’m aware”, Scott said and “they put me under” so that “I couldn’t move”. At this point a “buzzing” in his right ear changed to a ringing sound and “I lost control of my body”. Then all Scott saw was a screen like a TV monitor that was “fritzing”. Memories of his life flashed before him as he felt himself struggling to protect his mind “So they couldn’t touch it”. After this he quite literally lost consciousness although he had been saying “as fast I could ‘I’ve got to remember, I’ve got to remember’.”’ And this is the case of Catherine which I’ve laid out as a transcript. So this happened to her she says when she was a young girl and she was kidnapped from a friend’s garden and when she was up on the spaceship, one of the ‘little men’ brought out a metal implement and this is what happened next, where ‘C’ is Catherine and ‘A’ is alien. So ‘what are you going to do with that?’, ‘I’m just going to make a little cut’, ‘why?’, ‘because we need a sample’. ‘No, no, you can’t cut me’, ‘we have to’, ‘no you don’t have to, that’s mean, you don’t have to do it to me’, ‘it’s for scientific research’.
‘Well why can’t you cut something else?’ and this is after the cut, ‘because we need to blood. We had to get the sample’, ‘but you didn’t tell me why’. So this is on the way back down to earth ‘I’m researching your planet’, ‘what’s wrong with my planet?’, ‘we’re trying to stop the damage’, ‘what damage?’, ‘the damage from pollution’. ‘I don’t know about that’ says this 8 year old girl, ‘you’ll learn’. And then we’re going down again ‘I’m getting closer to the ground, getting closer, getting closer’ and I’m on the ground and I want to run away but I can’t move and he says ‘we’ll be back for you’. OK, so that was the easy bit.
That was just describing what these people report on. What on earth is going on? How do we explain this, given my assumption at the beginning that all of these beliefs are false? OK, so it’s not really illuminating to just say ‘oh, these people are obviously crazy’, that’s not a very good explanation of what’s going on here. We can do better than that. So people who are interested in alien abduction belief, they like to talk about awareness during sleep paralysis, so I’ll say what that is now.
So this is described by Richard McNally as a hiccup in the architecture of rapid eye movement sleep which lasts anywhere from a few seconds to several minutes. So during rapid eye movement sleep the sleeper is immobilised so motoric output is blocked. This is usually a really helpful mechanism because it stops us acting out our dreams and hurting sleeping partners. But sometimes things go really wrong and we can wake up before the paralysis has disappeared and we can become aware that we’re unable to move. And this can be accompanied, not surprisingly, by an increase in heart rate, difficulty breathing, and feelings of dread. But it’s actually quite common in the general population. Estimates vary on this but McNally and Clancy put it at 30% of the general population who have had an experience of sleep paralysis and three quarters of these people will hallucinate during the paralysis in one modality, which is just to say either visually or auditorally, whilst they’re paralysed. You can imagine how terrifying this is. Katherine Holden and Christopher French give a slightly different range, so they say it’s ‘somewhere between 25 and 40% of the population’ have had some experience of awareness during sleep paralysis. It’s not a disease or any other kind of medical condition, it’s terrifying but actually it’s harmless, it does not indicate ill-health or pathology.
OK, so that’s the first step. Then we can start talking about the hallucinations which can accompany this paralysis and these may be visual including ‘lights, animals, strange figures and demons, or auditory including heavy footsteps, humming or buzzing noises and sounds of heavy objects being moved’. So McNally and Clancy ask you to do this imaginative exercise. So ‘Imagine opening your eyes shortly before dawn, attempting to roll over in your bed and suddenly realising that you’re entirely paralysed. While lying helplessly on your back and unable to cry out for help you become aware of sinister figures lurking in your bedroom. As they move closer to your bed your heart begins to pound violently and you feel as if you’re suffocating. You hear buzzing sounds and feel electrical sensations shooting throughout your body. Within moments the visions vanish and you can move again. Terrified’—obviously—‘you wonder what has just happened’.
OK, so some people have this experience and they want to know what just happened to them. Now of course some people can just shrug it off as inexplicable or they might say ‘well, clearly I had too much to drink last night’ or maybe they actually know the explanation, maybe they spend their days thinking about hypnopompic hallucination and sleep paralysis. But for those people who don’t, they might be kind of freaked out and want an explanation of what just happened to them. So although ASP and hallucination is relatively common among the general population, knowledge of these states isn’t really. This doesn’t pop up on interview panels or on TV. So given that most people don’t know about this kind of stuff, it’s unlikely that they’re going to be able to explain their experience by appeal to these kind of explanations. So I’m willing to bet that before you guys came in here, at least some of you didn’t know about awareness during sleep paralysis and hypnopompic hallucination. If you don’t know about it, you’re not going to be able to explain your experience by appeal to it.
And though the experiences are common, they don’t indicate pathology. The general public just don’t know about this so they don’t go and say something like this, ‘oh, this is a dyssynchrony in the architecture of REM, it’ll pass’. They don’t do that. They freak out and they want to know what happened to them. OK, so this is McNally’s typical case of what happens to an abductee. They have this kind of night time experience, they wonder what happened to them, then they start reading about these experiences either online or in books. They see therapists who endorse the abduction explanation, therapists like John Mack, then they enter into memory recovery sessions via hypnosis and under hypnosis they start generating more details about the experience and what happened thereafter, including them being ‘whisked through walls up into the sky and into spaceships’, being ‘sexually probed by aliens’ and ‘involved in hybrid breeding experimentation’ before being ‘brought back down to the bedroom before the break of dawn’.
So now I want to ask whether experience is enough. So what I’ve said so far is that people have these beliefs that they’ve been abducted and all these terrible things have happened to them and we know that these kinds of experiences can be caused by awareness during sleep paralysis and accompanying hypnopompic hallucinations. So do we have a full explanation? Is that all we need to say in order to explain this? Obviously my answer’s going to be ‘no’ because I have two more sections. So does experience explain everything? It doesn’t. So in McNally and Clancy’s 2005 study, one of their twelve control subjects – so their subjects who were not abductees – reported having experienced sleep paralysis and just forgot about it. She wasn’t really worried about it, she just wrote it off as inexplicable. So they say of this, ‘not all individuals experiencing sleep paralysis will seek an explanation.
Some will simply shrug it off as weird and inexplicable occurrence’, some people will know the true cause. So having the experience isn’t going to be enough to get you all the way to alien abduction belief. And in a large scale study by J. Allan Cheyne and colleagues, they surveyed 870 university students and 22.5% of them had had this kind of experience, this sleep paralysis with hallucinations. Max Coltheart who’s a cognitive scientist working on delusion, he comments on this and he says look, I don’t know how many people think that they’ve been abducted by aliens, but I’m willing to bet that ‘it’s going to be lower than 22.5%’ and if we can take that 22.5% as representative of the general population, then it looks like we’ve got people who have the experience but don’t go on to have the weird belief. So there will ‘be many people who’ve experienced sleep paralysis with hallucinations yet do not have the alien abduction belief’.
So the experience can’t be doing all of the work. So it’s not enough. So this is Max Coltheart, if we accept that ‘the experience of sleep paralysis with hallucination is what prompts the idea of alien abduction in abductees, we still need to explain what it was that turned this idea into a permanent belief in these particular people when most people who have the experience do not adopt the belief’. This is from Susan Clancy, she’s my favourite person to read on this subject. She has a book called Abduction: Why People Believe they’ve been Abducted by Aliens, which I heartily recommend. This is a quote from her. She says look, ‘when there are so many available explanations for this kind of experience, from excess carbohydrates to parental neglect, from insufficient bikram yoga to too much Prozac, why pick alien abduction? What makes abductees unusual is not the strangeness of their experiences’, we’ve already seen that’s fairly common, ‘or their desire for an explanation, but the specific explanation they choose.
Why do some people come to believe that their sleep paralysis experiences are caused by extra-terrestrials?’ and then as a funny aside she says ‘it’s not actually a very good explanation for this reason: ‘Wouldn’t you think that these mentally and technologically superior beings would have something more interesting to do, something quite possibly beyond the imagining of the human brain than to hang around North America’ – where most abductees live – ‘kidnapping its more creative and intuitive inhabitants in order to do the same experiments over and over again?’ We always hear from people that they took their genetic material to produce hybrid babies. ‘Why are these genius aliens so dim? After 50 years of abducting us, why are they still taking the same bits and pieces? Don’t they have freezers?’. So here’s a reason for thinking actually it’s not a very good explanation of their experiences. OK, so just in the last part I’m just going to gesture to what other stuff might be going on which will get us from the experience to the alien abduction belief.
So, what you might be inclined to say is that OK, the experience isn’t enough in people who are kind of mentally well but if you get someone who’s a little bit mentally unstable, plug in the experience, that will do all the work. That’s going to be a really bad explanation because actually alien abductees are mentally well people. So there’s been no convincing evidence for higher rates of ‘serious psycho-pathology among abductees compared to the general population’.
And the typical abductee though, and this is what seems to be doing some of the work, there is a little bit of oddness about them. So they have a ‘long-standing interest in New Age practices and beliefs such as reincarnation, astral projection, mental telepathy, alternative healing practices, energy therapies and astrology’ and you might think that these beliefs make abductees ‘especially prone to endorse an alien encounter interpretation of their sleep paralysis episodes’. So if you’ve got someone who already believes in this kind of stuff, then you plug in the experience, that might be enough. And this is Clancy again.
She says look, it’s kind of consistent with what we already believe. We’ve already seen the alien abduction movies, we know the kind of thing that these guys get up to when they come to earth, so when we’re looking for an explanation of an experience, assuming we’re not well read in psychology so we don’t know the true explanation, we can only choose from those explanations which we’ve actually heard of. Most of us who don’t study this stuff, a ‘set of possible explanations is far from complete’. Most of us are ‘unaware of the prevalence of sleep paralysis, sexual dysfunction, anxiety disorders, perceptual aborations, chemical imbalances, memory lapses, and psychosomatic pain.
But, our set of possible explanations does include alien abduction’… ‘everyone knows about aliens and their modus operandi’, right? We all know that ‘they come at night, fill you with terror, kidnap you and erase your memories’. We’ve all seen the films, right? This kind of explanation is available to us. So it’s also consistent with the kind of thing that we believe already – some of us. So maybe we’ve got closer to a full explanation now. So we had this experience that I outlined at the beginning but I said that’s not going to get you all the way because some people have the experience without the belief.
OK, plug in this other stuff, so New Age beliefs and familiarity with the alien abduction narrative, which people in North America – which coincidentally is where most of the abductees live – have. These other contributory factors are present in the normal population, so they’re not sort of clinically significant, they don’t make you mentally unwell if you have these New Age beliefs and this familiarity with the abduction narrative. So maybe we can get closer to a full explanation of alien abduction belief by looking at the weird experiences people have, plus some oddities found in the non-abductee population. So I’ll just leave you with this final thought from Clancy. So she says ‘at other times and other places in the world, such night terrors have been interpreted as Satan, demons, witches, dragons, vampires, large dogs and angels and erect Gorgon’.
(I don’t know what that is.) ‘Today it’s extra-terrestrials, yet although it’s true that sleep paralysis and alien abduction experiences have a lot in common’, right, ‘there’s one important difference. Sleep paralysis is a fact; alien abduction isn’t. So, if you wake up in the middle of the night, levitating above your bed and sleeping like a chicken on a rotisserie, you should understand that the experience is roughly a billion times more likely to have been caused by something normal than by something paranormal’.
‘But be careful about telling this to an actual abductee. You’ll encounter only denial, anger, blank stares or condescending smiles’. Thanks. .

The prospect of being alone in the universe is, at least in my opinion, an extremely underwhelming answer to the question of “what else is out there”. Which is why I and so many others may cling to the smallest sign of proof that aliens do in fact exist. And to go even further, that they are already in contact with us on Earth. After all, it would be one of the most incredible truths that could ever come out of human history.
So is it possible? Well, no one can say for sure, but to give you some more signs of proof to cling to, on this Sci-5, I present you with 5 Signs aliens may already be in contact with humans. 5. Technology jump after Roswell Reverse engineering is a very real thing that happens in the science field. There is no argument that scientists and engineers take foreign or ancient technology apart to determine how it works, and use that information to apply to new technologies. This is supposedly what happened to the alien technology that allegedly landed in New Mexico in 1947. Jack Shulman was the head of the American Computer Company. He also worked at many major technology companies such as Bell Labs, and IBM. During his time at ACC, he says he was approached by someone whom he refers to as “the consultant”. The consultant gave him some documents, which included a laboratory notebook from the late 40s, placing them after Roswell. They were from a special projects group called the “Z Division”, which worked with the US government to complete technical assessments of foreign nuclear programs and weapons capabilities.
The “Z Division” coincidently, originated in Roswell. Between 1947 and 1948, Harry Truman contracted AT&T with the overseeing and management of US nuclear arsenal and the commercialization of derived product technologies from the nuclear bomb. In 1949 the contract became official, and AT&T became increasingly important in the project, eventually taking near control of the Z-Division. Also at this time in 1947, the transistor was miraculously invented by three AT&T researchers. One of which went on to win a Nobel Prize for the invention. What puzzles so many, is that in 1946 AT&T did not possess the technology needed to create the transistor, but somehow one year later they solidified ties with top-secret government projects and invented the incredibly important piece of technology.
Shulman, who claims he was skeptical of the information that came his way at first, says he was always somewhat mystified as to where the technology was actually created, but eventually, when the information came his way, it all seemed to make sense. In the late 90s, he published the documents to the American Computer Company website, which generated loads of feedback from people all over the world. He was invited to join many news outlets, including ABC, and not surprisingly, Coast to Coast with Art Bell. Jack’s claims were taken very seriously by many due to his closeness with people who worked on the project. When he was attending school, he lived with Jack Morton and was good friends with his son.
Morton was the administrative head of the transistor project. Shulman believes he is the one who originally leaked the documents. Morton had not been given any of the credit for the project and was quite angry about that. Especially when the Nobel Prize became involved. As the years went on, his relationship with AT&T became worse and worse. The fraying relationship came to an end in 1972 when Dr. Morton was found knocked unconscious and set on fire in his car. Jack believes this is because the company was afraid of him releasing information, information that years later ended up on his desk.
There is a lot more to this story, and I encourage you all to read the Jack Shulman lecture linked below if you are interested in finding out more. 4. Reputable people’s testimonies If Jack Shulman’s account of Roswell doesn’t convince you, then perhaps even more reputable figures may. Many political figures, celebrities, and people of power have openly discussed their experiences and belief in aliens and alien contact.
Some of the more famous claims can be attributed to former US presidents Ronald Reagan, and Jimmy Carter. Both, who on separate occasions say they have witnessed UFOs. There are countless more notable people who have reported witnessing UFOs, but these claims start to get really interesting once we move past simple sightings. There are an incredible number of former and current government workers who have come forward to say their government is hiding information about extraterrestrial initiatives, but in this video, we are going to focus on two that caught my eye due to their positions, and rational approach to the topic.
The first will come from the United States. Most of you may be aware of the stories that broke in many major news outlets in late 2017 about a former Pentagon UFO Investigator who came forward with claims that UFOs were in fact real. After years of working for the Pentagon, Luis Elizondo decided to come forward about his experience in the search for aliens. In October of 2017, he resigned from the Department of Defense in protest of what he claimed was excessive secrecy surrounding the program, also citing he was frustrated with internal opposition to it following funding cuts in 2012.
Not long after this, in an interview to CNN, he stated, “”my personal belief is that there is very compelling evidence that we may not be alone.” While he danced around the words a little bit, he did also strongly hint that there was evidence that caused him to believe UFOs not only existed but have already visited Earth. Despite no longer working with the government, Luis has continued his work searching for extraterrestrials, and bringing the information to the public by joining former Blink 182 frontman and notable alien enthusiast and researcher Tom DeLonge in the To The Stars Academy.
He now holds the role as Director of Global Security & Special Programs. Moving a bit north, Paul Hellyer was the Minister of Defence for Canada from 1963, to 1967. Paul has also served various terms in other political positions for the Canadian government, and is the longest serving member of the Queen’s Privy Council for Canada, just above Prince Philip.
Hellyer has been very outspoken of his belief in extraterrestrials and says they have been in contact with humans for many years. He is known as the highest-ranked alien believer on earth, and his claims are taken seriously enough to make national headlines in major news sources in Canada, including the National Post, and The Toronto Star.
It wasn’t until 2005, at 81 years old that Paul decided to go public with his information. He says that at least four different types of aliens have visited our planet, and many more exist. He also states that there is a “federation” of sorts that has a rule not to interfere with human affairs. Therefore, they simply observe us. He states that at least two of the types of aliens that have visited us are completely benign. He also says that they are not very impressed with our actions on Earth, citing clear-cutting, dumping sewage, and other rather distasteful habits we have. He makes many more claims about extraterrestrials and on an immense amount of other topics. If this interest you, I highly recommend checking out more of his claims. 3. There are some physical pieces of evidence that have the opportunity to be interpreted as possible documented proof of alien encounters dating back even as far as ancient times. To begin, there are many religions that have stories of flying machines descending from the sky.
In religious texts, these are most often referred to as deities coming from heaven, but when looking at the stories with a modern eye, some details may point toward the possibility of alien encounters. There are many examples to choose from, but to focus on a few, in the bible Elijah is taken into the sky by what is described as a chariot of fire. At the time, a chariot was really the only type of vehicle, which makes it somewhat safe to assume that even if it was a flying vehicle, like a spaceship, it may still have been described as a chariot.
Also in biblical times, electricity had yet to be discovered so lights would simply be described as fire. So could this chariot of fire actually had been a bright ufo? In Indian Sanskrit writings, there are many other references to Vimanas, or flying machines. The Bhagavata Purana describes a metal aircraft that appeared to be in two places at once. The king Ravana was said to have his own called the Pushpaka Vimana. This account was actually made into a 1987 movie, and was then rebooted in 2016. It’s possible these stories could be metaphors, or even just stories, but is it also possible they could be describing UFO encounters or in the case of Elijah, alien abductions? Aside from religious stories, it is also possible to reason that the Ancient Egyptians may have had encounters with extraterrestrials. Scribes of the pharaoh Thutmose III from 1440 BC describe fiery disks passing over the sky. Also, as many of you may be familiar with, there is the case of the mysterious hieroglyphics from the Temple of Seti that appear to depict futuristic vehicles including a helicopter, tank, and even what looks like a spaceship. While no rational explanation can be proved, it is heavily believed these have been altered over the years, or are even just pure coincidence.
But is it possible our minds jump to these conclusions simply because we cannot believe what we don’t know? This specific idea can be quite the rabbit hole to fall down, but if you’re up to challenge your thoughts, and the status quo, I suggest you take a dive. 2. Although some may seem, and probably are incredibly ridiculous and unlikely, the abundance of UFO sightings from around the world are impossible to ignore. For every few reports with clear rational explanations, comes a real stumper that is hard to brush off, especially those with multiple witnesses. For example, the 1965 Kecksburg UFO incident where thousands of people across six different American states and one Canadian province saw a metal object catch on fire and fall into a small village just outside of Pittsburg.
Many witnesses reported that they saw what they assumed to be a meteor falling to the ground, however as it came closer to the Earth people started to notice the object appeared to be of a metallic formation. The object also supposedly dropped hot metal debris of Michigan and northern Ohio. The authorities had many explanations including space debris falling from orbit, a missile test gone wrong, and even a plane crash. In the town of Kecksburg where the object supposedly landed, a young boy and his mother claimed to have seen blue smoke coming from the landing spot, and called the local authorities. Many responded including local police and volunteer firefighters. The object was described as and acorn shape roughly the size of a Volkswagen Beetle, featuring images that looked like ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics on the sides. Soon after initial response, the military arrived, secured the area, and ordered civilians to leave.
After their investigation they reported that they found “absolutely nothing”. Thousands of reports about UFOs are made every year around the world. There’s a good chance even you may have witnessed something you really aren’t able to explain. So is it safe to say this is enough proof that we are in fact being visited by aliens? What do you think? 1. There is also the possibility that aliens really are in contact with humans, and not only are they observing us, but they may also be studying us, and its possible we don’t know, because we never remember. Abductions are much less reported than UFO sightings, but there are still an abundance of claims that have eerily similar details. One of the most common occurrences in the case of an abduction is lost time, and many people do not remember anything that happened until much later, if at all. So in theory, it could be possible that you or someone you know has been abducted in the past, but has no memory of it. Fortunately, some people are able to recall bits and pieces of their experience.
Perhaps one of the most interesting things about abduction reports is how similar most of them are. Researchers have even created a rough timeline of events that coincide with most cases. The timeline is as follows, capture, examination and procedures, conference, where the aliens communicate, usually telepathically with the abductee, then the tour of the vessel, the return, which is followed by a euphoric sense of love and metaphysical change, and then the aftermath. A prime example of this is the famous Betty and Barney Hill case. The couple was driving home late at night in September of 1961 when they stopped their car to observe strange lights overhead. The next thing they knew hours had passed and they were 35 miles closer to home than they had been, and they had no idea what had happened. Betty called a close friend who worked at an air base to report a UFO sighting.
She was told that two other reports were made in that area based on radar data. Weeks later Betty began having nightmares about being aboard a spacecraft and having medical procedures done on her. Eventually the two of them decided to undergo hypnosis where they both told a story about being abducted, experimented on, and were told by aliens that the beings were from a planet Zeta Reticuli. Many other cases following this chain of events have been reported.There have even been UFO sightings where the witness reports lost time, but not an abduction. So is it possible aliens are researching us right now, and we simply just can’t remember? Is it possible that you or I have already been abducted? It’s hard to say, but it sure doesn’t seem as impossible as some may believe. Thanks for checking out this Sci-5. If you liked this video, don’t forget to like and subscribe.

Somewhere out there in that vast universe, there must surely be countless other planets teeming with life, but why don’t we see any evidence of it? Well, this is the famous question asked by Enrico Fermi in 1950: “Where is everybody?” Conspiracy theorists claim that UFOs are visiting all the time and the reports are just being covered up, but honestly, they aren’t very convincing. But that leaves a real riddle. In the past year, the Kepler space observatory has found hundreds of planets just around nearby stars, and if you extrapolate that data, it looks like there could be half a trillion planets just in our own galaxy.
If only one in 10,000 has conditions that might support a form of life, that’s still 50 million possible life-harboring planets right here in the Milky Way. So here’s the riddle. Our Earth didn’t form until about 9 billion years after the Big Bang. Countless other planets in our galaxy should have formed earlier and given life a chance to get underway billions or certainly many millions of years earlier than happened on Earth.
If just a few of them had spawned intelligent life and started creating technologies, those technologies would have had millions of years to grow in complexity and power. On Earth, we’ve seen how dramatically technology can accelerate in just 100 years. In millions of years, an intelligent alien civilization could easily have spread out across the galaxy, perhaps creating giant energy-harvesting artifacts, or fleets of colonizing spaceships, or glorious works of art that fill the night sky. At the very least, you’d think they’d be revealing their presence, deliberately or otherwise, through electromagnetic signals of one kind or another. And yet we see no convincing evidence of any of it. Why? Well, there are numerous possible answers, some of them quite dark. Maybe a single, superintelligent civilization has indeed taken over the galaxy, and has imposed strict radio silence because it’s paranoid of any potential competitors. It’s just sitting there ready to obliterate anything that becomes a threat. Or maybe they’re not that intelligent. Or perhaps, the evolution of an intelligence capable of creating sophisticated technology is far rarer than we’ve assumed.
After all, it’s only happened once on Earth in 4 billion years. Maybe even that was incredibly lucky. Maybe we are the first such civilization in our galaxy. Or, perhaps, civilization carries with it the seeds of its own destruction through the inability to control the technologies it creates. But there are numerous more hopeful answers. For a start, we’re not looking that hard, and we’re spending a pitiful amount of money on it. Only a tiny fraction of the stars in our galaxy have really been looked at closely for signs of interesting signals. And perhaps, we’re not looking the right way. Maybe as civilizations develop, they quickly discover communication technologies far more sophisticated and useful than electromagnetic waves. Maybe all the action takes place inside the mysterious recently discovered dark matter, or dark energy, that appear to account for most of the universe’s mass. Or maybe we’re looking at the wrong scale. Perhaps intelligent civilizations come to realize that life is ultimately just complex patterns of information interacting with each other in a beautiful way, and that can happen more efficiently at a small scale.
So just as on Earth, clunky stereo systems have shrunk to beautiful, tiny iPods, maybe intelligent life itself, in order to reduce its footprint on the environment, has turned itself microscopic, so the Solar System might be teeming with aliens, and we’re just not noticing them. Maybe the very ideas in our heads are a form of alien life. Well, okay, that’s a crazy thought. The aliens made me say it. But it is cool that ideas do seem to have a life all of their own, and that they outlive their creators. Maybe biological life is just a passing phase. Well, within the next 15 years, we could start seeing real spectroscopic information from promising nearby planets that will reveal just how life-friendly they might be.
And meanwhile SETI, the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence, is now releasing its data to the public so that millions of citizen scientists, maybe including you, can bring the power of the crowd to join the search. And here on Earth, amazing experiments are being done to try to create life from scratch, life that might be very different from the DNA forms we know. All of this will help us understand whether the universe is teeming with life or, whether indeed, it’s just us. Either answer, in its own way, is awe-inspiring, because even if we are alone, the fact that we think and dream, and ask these questions might yet turn out to be one of the most important facts about the universe. And I have one more piece of good news for you. The quest for knowledge and understanding never gets dull. It doesn’t. It’s actually the opposite. The more you know, the more amazing the world seems. And it’s the crazy possibilities, the unanswered questions, that pull us forward. So, stay curious. .

JUDY MESSOLINE: We have pretty bizarre things happen here. Most of the people I know down here have seen something bizarre at one time or another. No, we don’t discuss it a whole bunch, but they believe. They think there’s something going on, too. My partner and I moved to the San Luis Valley to raise cattle, did not move here for UFOs, and didn’t even realize that this was a hot spot of the nation for sightings. And I knew nothing about them anyway. Well, then I started meeting some of the locals down here. And they all had UFO stories– I mean, one after another after another, even to the point where there was a real estate company years ago that would make people who bought land from them sign a disclaimer saying that they were aware that there was UFO activity in this valley.
So anyway, it got to the point I’d giggle and say, we need a UFO watchtower, never ever thinking I’d ever do it. Well, after four and a half years of struggling with cows, because they don’t eat sand really well, they about broke me. So I was talking to one of the farmers one day and I said, I’ve had to sell the cows. I don’t want to sell my land. And he said, you need to put up that UFO watchtower you giggled about. You’d have fun. It was just going to be a little old mom and pop business. We’d be open in the summer, closed in the winter, catch that tourist traffic off the highway, never thinking we would ever see anything from here. I mean, that was not even a vision. Well, from the time we opened, we started seeing things. And as of now, and this is November, we have had 67 sightings from just here since we opened.
One night we had about 60 people over here. And there was a couple sitting up from on the bench. And the woman jumps up just screaming. Do you see them? Do you see them? They were so high up that if she hadn’t pointed them out, I would have never seen them. And there was one here and one here, and they were moving remarkably fast towards the north. The one in the front stopped, and it waited for the one behind to catch up. And when that one caught up, the two of them took off, and there was a streak of light across the sky.
Another night it looked like a shooting star, and it was over here on the other side of the sand dunes. And it’s coming down. I’m watching this shooting star, OK? And it gets below the peaks of the mountains, and it lost its momentum, and it started to float like this. Well see, that makes sense to my weird mind. But anyway, what didn’t make sense is it went straight back up. So it wasn’t a shooting star. So many bizarre things have happened here in the last 12 years.
And I tell folks, maybe you don’t quite get all of this, OK? But you better have an open mind, because something’s going on up there in that cosmos, so we just don’t know about. And do I believe now? You betcha. JAY YOUNG: I’ve seen some pretty strange things. I’ve seen things that I’ve never even heard of before. I think there’s a lot of things in this universe that we don’t understand, and maybe we’re not meant to. Elvis. Here, buddy, buddy. Oh, there he is. How you doing big dog? Hey. JAY YOUNG: How’s my big boy? Yes. How’s my big boy? I was born in Texas, but I had the good sense to move to Colorado when I was six months old and been in the valley almost ever since.
My name is Jay Young, and I’m the manager of Colorado Gators Reptile Park. I’ve known Judy for quite a while, I guess. I went to the UFO watchtower probably the first year she opened it. It was a novel idea. She knew there was all these sightings in the San Luis Valley. And as she’s told you, I’m sure, she’s seen things since then. Do you know about Snippy the horse, right? First documented animal mutilation, possible UFO mutilation, happened here in the San Luis Valley back in the late ’60s. And it was a horse named Snippy the horse. It was just totally stripped bare.
But where the meat ended on the neck, the flesh was cauterized. There was no blood in the horse’s body, and there were no signs of any predators or anything strange around it. We just found this horse with the flesh missing off of its head. And we had an ostrich disappear. It’s missing to this day. It’s been four years now. Nobody ever saw this ostrich. So we decided to name him Snippy, if he ever does show up. I think the San Luis Valley probably draws a lot of supernatural or extraterrestrial activity possibly because of the geothermal water.
And there’s a lot of crazy people here who probably see things that they didn’t actually see, too. And then, the San Luis Valley draws strange people, so it might as well draw strange aircraft as well. JUDY MESSOLINE: Some say that its the vastness of the valley, because it’s so huge and not highly populated. Others say it’s a spiritually of the valley. Others say that there’s an E.T. base in Mount Blanca over here. Well, all of this sounds really good. But it didn’t make sense to my mind. Then I got a magazine from Great Britain. And in that magazine it said that the majority of their sightings was where there were hot water wells. That makes sense. From one end to this valley to the other, we have geothermal water. JAY YOUNG: We have very little atmosphere here at our elevation.
We have very little pollution. We have very clear skies. We do a lot of watching just from our front yard. Judy built a nice place for people to go and hang out that didn’t have a front yard here. JUDY MESSOLINE: The folks who come here to visit, first thing I ask is have you ever had any UFO experiences? Some will come right out and say, oh yeah. But folks have made fun of them for relating their stories. And I said, how can people do that? People have these experiences, don’t make fun of them. DAN: Everyone, whether they’re skeptical or not, everybody wants to think we’re not alone. Yeah, I’ve seen lights in the sky and objects that seem to hover and then take off quickly. AMANDA: I was up in the mountains with my friend near Denver. And it was the middle of the day, and we saw something that was just hovering for a long time.
It was just like an orb that was brightening and dimming. But it was still for a really long time, and then it moved. JOE: I just left my house. I was on my way into town and had some lights coming over towards us from where Blanca is. And as it was coming towards us, it seemed to come down, get brighter and brighter as it was coming down. It was a pretty good ways up there, though. And all of a sudden, it went from going straight at us and took an immediate right and went off and just disappeared off into the sky. KENNY: We have what we call the mystery lights. It’s lights we see over top of the mountains, not moving, not blinking.
So it’s not really an airplane or nothing, doesn’t look quite like a star. So we don’t really know what it is, so we just called it mystery lights. JAY YOUNG: I’m driving up Highway 17 one night. I saw three lights off to the left. And then they went over the mountains in less than 10 seconds. I calculated it out that there was no sonic boom from them taking off, breaking the sound barrier.
So that was strange. And then I calculated it out. They were going upwards of 21,000 miles per hour. JOSH: I’ve actually never experienced anything. And I’ve never seen anything myself in the area. But I believe it. In the cities and valley, there’s a lot of stuff going on, a lot of buildings. But out here in the open, you can really see everything in the sky. I’m sure there has been plenty of sightings out here. There’s plenty of room for it. JUDY MESSOLINE: If extraterrestrials were mean, we wouldn’t be here, kids.
Because their technology is so much greater than ours. We wouldn’t be here. There’s a painting over there. And the woman who did the painting is an abductee. She has been abducted for, oh gosh, since she was just a child. And she’s 50 now. And now she tries to make it a positive experience. And yeah, she was scared. But that’s human nature. We’re going to be scared about the unknown. I used to watch Mulder on TV and stuff. But as far as really being into it, I was a horse person. I was not somebody that was out here staring at the sky all the time. Now, I wish I would have taken the time to stare at the sky, because there’s some amazing stuff that goes on up there.
You look at all the turmoil that we go through here on Earth and the changes, and there has to be something better. .
