I donít want to try to convince you away from your valid point

No matter how you choose to set the beginning of what we call
science or objective thought, as opposed to belief, after all
those years, science is still in itís infancy. We just donít
know much of anything. As you know every time we think weíve
discovered a new thing, we in turn have a new set of questions
to try to answer.

On things psychological, Iíve read that logic isnít expected
there. Itís not logical; itís psycho-logical.

So, (aside from my own weak attempts at humor), from my own work
point of view, psychological theories do have merit when used
for healing. But the medicinally beneficial forms of talk-
therapy, including hypnosis, are almost always augmented with
the most current chemical controls.

However, when used for social preferences, like weight loss and
to control other forms of addiction, those theories and therapies
are not very effective. Specifically, hypnosis used for other
than strictly medicinal purposes, is fraught with less surety
than just positive purposing alone. By positive purposing, Iím
referring to existential theories like Franklís logotherapy that
helps a person find real purpose and meaning in life.

To our point, I too have questions about the use of regressive
hypnosis when investigating alien abduction experiences. But Iím
not ready to throw it out completely. Like Mr. Nick Pope, I
recommend caution,


Mr. Budd Hopkins began the use of regressive hypnosis, by non-
professionals, in "uncovering" the "suppressed memories" of
abductees. Dr. David M. Jacobs is oft-quoted that the alien
abduction phenomenon, including his use of regressive hypnosis,
finally got us into the flying saucers. Dr. Jacobs may be right.
But these "memories" will always be in question, until a more
sure way of recovery either confirms their truth or something

So, I can agree with you to the point that hypnosis is not a
panacea. But I hold out hope that it is helpful in this arena
and not all wasted effort.
