I just finished reading the book by Bret Oldham, Children Of The
Greys. Warning, do not read this late at night when alone!

I too, have had some experiences, but nothing like what Bret
went through. However, it does seem that communications are
telepathic or by an inner sense to oneself conveying a
"feeling". Most of the aliens he encountered had no emotions,
and I have the impression they are seeking, or need to feed from
our emotions, perhaps our souls. I agree with Hawking, that
caution is very warranted.

At the end of the book, Kathleen Marden has a chapter on the
steps we would take, if we encountered an alien race on another
planet, and of course, the final step would be to make ourselves

The reason I mention this, (and again, from my own viewpoint) is
that I think we need critical mass for acceptance. What I mean
by that is, the more they show themselves, the more accepting we
are of their presence. I think they are not able to manifest
completely here, until enough people have seen them and believe.

So, is the acceptance instilled in the human race over a period
of time, or do we truly think for ourselves and make a sound
decision? This is like a two edged sword... How can we
communicate with a species if there's a question of mind
control, instilled thoughts, or perceptions of reality?
