Just for you...
Alien abduction - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The terms alien abduction
or abduction phenomenon
describe "subjectively real memories of being taken secretly against one's will by apparently nonhuman entities
and subjected to complex physical and psychological procedures".
People claiming to have been abducted are usually called "abductees" or "experiencers".
What I have a burning need for is the desire to know what the hell we are talking about. If you think you have been abducted by aliens, does that make it true? If you think you are physically displaced but in fact are not, does that invalidate the experience? What if the event only occurs inside your brain?
To me, a working definition is necessary in order to postulate methods for actuation. Can you tell me how to start an auto engine without knowing what kind of engine is involved? Of course not. So forget dictionaries and decide what you want to consider here and can support with credible case histories. With that, we might be able to postulate methodologies that could cause it.
Tell me that an alien abduction might be a multi-dimensional spirit entity removing its victim in only the time domain to imprint an experience in the victim with no witnesses and I defy you to devise a methodology for making it happen!
