I have had about 10 years of experience with informal
observation of numerous individuals who have allegedly
experienced an abduction involving what they described as a none
human entity. I come at this, not from the standpoint of a
clinical professional (although I have a degree in Psychology,
where I specialized in perception and information processing),
but rather as a Folklorist ( also am degreed in Anthropology and
have done graduate work in fringe religions and cults). I have
been doing this type of work for over 30 years now, starting
with the lore that is very prevalent in the Mount Shasta area of
California back in 1968.

Although I have seen instances of what could be described as a
"Stockholm syndrome" (falling in love with your abductor)type of
reaction, for the most part, these people have experienced some
very deeply seated trauma. I have three very close friends who
have been in this situation and I can tell you that they really
do not like to open up about it. This includes one who has been
a combat veteran and has done special ops work for the U.S.
Army. One of my cases also involved an ex-Navy Seal who
disappeared in Travis Walton style for over 8 days. He was so
traumatized that upon recovering, he reported directly to his
ex-commanding officer, who just so happens to be very high up in
the chain of command.

The point here is the abduction scenario, regardless of what
people would like to make out of it in defense of their
particular world view, is something that needs very serious
scientific inquiry. This is precisely what motivated John Mack
to do what he has done, regardless of the consequences.

Continuously over the past decade I have heard the rants of
those who demand that proof be personally delivered to their
doorstep and this continues to this day. To be frank, I have
long ago grown bored of this, however nothing would give me
greater pleasure than to take some skeptics right up to the side
of a large craft and let them touch it themselves. Who knows,
sometime in the future, this might happen.
