My >husband's response [he was also abducted that evening]: >Maybe humans are unique and we are viewed by other Beings as >the stem cells' of the Universe. This has been a recurring theme in pulp science fiction for more than fifty years: the idea that although aliens may be more advanced than we are in a few (ultimately unimportant) respects, we are actually much more special/noble/ethically superior etc.. It's claptrap. You can view it as arising from a poverty of imagination as to the likely attributes of alien species, or you can view it as a lazy transposition of human neo-colonial attitudes to other races, societies and species: they are there to be exploited. Judaeo-Christian texts reinforce/justify this kind of guff. Most of the aforementioned science fiction is American, so one might be tempted to view this tendency of thought as an extrapolation of American Exceptionalism. Perhaps, Kay, your husband might care to consider an alternative hypothesis: it could be that human DNA (even American DNA) is so ordinary, so basic, so fundamentally bog-standard, that it represents ideal experimental material, having the least amount of 'unique' characteristics that would impede and dangerously skew alien bio-engineering projects. On this theme, if there were any substance to this or related hypotheses, we might also expect to see reports of abductions involving chimpanzees. Any reports from zoos knocking around?
