Pavel:

It seems that the abduction phenomenon has occurred in many
contexts over the years.

Socrates supposedly had a qausi-experience, and Malcolm X
more recently.

Jesus' resurrection was transcribed, as was Ezekiel's episode,
and other accounts in such a way that one can find parallels
with Will Bueche's account, even John Velez' less than
comforting experience.

My point was and remains that the episodes strike some
commentators as interdimensionable; that is, those bringing
about the experience are neither here nor there but traverse
space (maybe time) independent of the prosaic means we
all usually use and understand.

The experience is rife with quantum elements, the whole
thing being tangible but not tangible. This is what keeps abduction
events from being easily explained.
