'Alien Abduction' Research Suggests Episodes Are Actually Lucid
By: Natalie Wolchover

Hundreds of thousands or millions of Americans believe they have
been abducted by aliens. In a typical case, an abductee recounts
lying in bed one night when an eerie feeling overcomes him, and
alien beings appear out of nowhere. The extraterrestrials
transport him to a spacecraft and subject him to a battery of
physical and psychological tests. After what seems like hours,
he is returned to his bedroom unharmed, and finds that the whole
ordeal transpired in minutes.

Abductees think their traumatic experiences were real. However,
most psychologists think abductions are lucid dreams or
hallucinations, triggered by an awareness of other people's
similar experiences. One recent experiment, in which
participants trained in lucid dreaming techniques were able to
dream up vivid alien encounters, supports this hypothesis. But
if each perceived abduction is just the latest in a series of
hallucinations, what was it that triggered that first dream or
delusion? How was the alien abduction story born?

Paranormal investigators say it all started in the 1940s and
'50s. The Space Age was upon us, and sci-fi literature was
soaring in popularity with human-alien encounters a recurring
theme. In July 1946, "Planet Comics" ran a strip in which aliens
used a luminous tractor beam to kidnap a voluptuous female
earthling, whom they called Specimen 9. They tell her the
abduction is part of "Project Survival," and as they steer their
spaceship toward what looks like Saturn, the leader remarks,
"Now home. And if you find our methods ruthless, Specimen 9, it
is because our needs are desperate."
