Throughout the recounting of the story on the preceding pages, I
have tried to maintain an even-handed treatment of the events,
allowing our actual words to express our differing thoughts,
feelings, and opinions.  This has not been an easy task.  Very
few subjects invite such divisiveness, hostility, and ridicule.
Ufology, as a field of endeavor, is unique both in the derision
afforded it by the hard sciences, and in the number of closet
adherents comprising its members.

Regardless of the method of retrieval -- through hypnosis or
conscious recall -- the recovery of memories dealing with alien
abduction can be very traumatic.1  Such recovery should not be
attempted without a support system securely in place.  This
support system might consist of a spouse, family member, friend,
co-worker, another experiencer, or a combination of any or all
of these.  I was fortunate to have a very supportive husband,
and open-minded friends and family members.

The initial shock (for me) was a shattering of my world-view.  I
had never given credence to stories of aliens abducting human
beings, and had no desire to be a part of those who said aliens
had abducted them.  The urge to remain in denial was very
strong, and was exacerbated by the secondary wounding that
occurs when family and/or friends respond with disbelief or

Once you finally accept the reality of the alien presence, it
becomes necessary to explain its presence -- to somehow humanize
its motives -- and this becomes the final area of contention.
Sadly, it is contention with no answers -- only opinions.  What
follows are my opinions, based on my experiences with this alien

There appear to be three sub-groups of believers in the alien
abduction phenomenon.  These sub-groups consist of those who
believe the aliens are:  1) benevolent, 2) neutral, and 3)
malevolent.  My encounters have been primarily neutral in
nature, and my current stance is one of wary neutrality.

I am not a channeler, and have received no information from the
entities, except during face-to-face encounters.  The messages I
have received from them have primarily consisted of short
platitudes, and have been designed to facilitate their end
results with the least interference from me.  (Examples are:  No
harm will come to you, Do not fear, Its not the time to know.)
Other messages have indicated that the beings are immeasurably
more ancient than the human race, and that they have been here
interacting with us far longer than we realize.  I have sensed
several concepts related to their relationship with humans:

1)  They have indicated annoyance when persistently questioned
about details they dont wish to divulge.  Usually, such
persistent questioning by me has led to the leader rendering me
unconscious. (During this process, the leader normally has made
eye contact with me, and through his stronger mental force of
will is able to cause me to black out.

2)  On occasion, the leader has indicated an almost-human sense
of humor.  During one encounter, the leader hugged me, and in
response to my plea to remember to send me home, it responded,
These humans -- as long as weve dealt with them, and they never
seem to learn!  (I guess he/it was in a good mood that evening!)

3)  By far, the message with the most impact that Ive received
has been, This is how we breed.  What are the implications of
this statement, if literally true?  What are they breeding?
What are their motivations?  What are their plans for the stock
(human/alien/hybrid?) theyre breeding?  These are questions that
demand answers.

While none of my experiences has indicated overt malevolence on
the part of the aliens, neither has any experience convinced me
of their benevolence, nor the need for their interference in
human lives.  I feel strongly that there is a true core
experience involved with every human touched by the alien
abduction phenomenon, and that each of us incorporates the
experience into our lives utilizing our own personal psyche.  No
matter how we choose to decide on the entities ultimate
motivations, the hard truth remains that we are being forcibly
removed from our consensus reality by something alien, we are
being quasi-medically examined on a physical and mental level,
and we are powerless to prevent the abductions.  Were the
perpertrators human, would we have any difficulty in recognizing
the wrongness of their actions?

I have often been asked, But hasnt the experience made you grow?
and, Doesnt that growth prove its benevolent?  My answer is,
Yes, I have grown emotionally and spiritually.  However, I
attribute the growth to my inner resources; not to an alien
creature whose interference in my life created turmoil.  I would
no more thank a devastating accident for occurring in my life,
regardless of the growth caused by my survival of a traumatic
event.  We must learn to differentiate between outcome and
catalyst, or we will forever run in fear as victims, or worship
at the feet of a false god.

I have no idea where these entities come from -- whether they
are extraterrestrial, interdimensional, time-travelers, or a
form of earth-life that has always existed side-by-side with
humans.  Perhaps all that really matters is that they are here
-- now -- and we need to deal with them.

Whatever these aliens are -- wherever they come from -- cant we
meet them, not as children, not as supplicants on our knees
begging for an end to our ills, but instead on equal footing,
standing eye-to-eye, as responsible adults?
