Mr. O'Connell, you misunderstood me. I was not writing to those
who are skeptical of alien abduction or skeptical of the use of
hypnosis. If you are either of these then of course you are
going to find problems with what I wrote. So I wasn't attempting
to prove the reality of alien abduction or the use of hypnosis
to retrieve memories. My writing was directed at those who
already accept alien abduction as a potential reality in an
effort to perhaps shed light on a topic of concern in the hopes
of furthering our understanding.
