I think that you have misunderstood and misinterpreted my
statements. I am certainly well trained in psychology and the
propensity of humans to confabulate, especially when under
hypnosis.You are not giving me credit where credit is due. I
have discussed many of the more troubling aspects of ET science
and technology with theoretical physicists- those that we cannot
understand within the tenets of western scientific materialism.
Dr. John Mack faced the same dilemma. I'm not referring to magic
or mysticism. I'm speaking of repeating patterns witnessed and
reported by thousands and documented by Mack, Hopkins, Jacobs,
Smith, Hynek, Valee, etc. It was not easy for me to move from
nuts and bolts ufology to acknowledging these troubling aspects,
but when the evidence became overwhelming, I had to pull my head
out of the sand and acknowledge that they have indeed been
reported by thousands of individuals over a 52 year period.

With regard to the "Commonalities Among Abduction Experiencers
Study", I spent more than a year on this exhaustive project,
communicating with 54 experiencers (4 could not complete the
project), and a 25 person control group of sorts. There were
statistically significant commonalities on 23 of the 45 multiple choice
and fill in questions that were not present on a statistically
significant level among the non-experiencers. The second part of the
study as not yet been completed, because I haven't been able to
find the number of participants needed, even though it has been
widely publicized. It requires knowledge of ET technology observed
on the craft. Thus far, I've received only positive comments from
many highly educated individuals, including several PhDs and MDs.

Perhaps you didn't hear my opening remarks, but I stated that
"The Alien Abduction Files" is a departure from my usual nuts
and bolts investigative style. It is not a repeat of "Captured!
The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience", using more recent
cases. "The Alien Abduction Files" explores the hearts and minds
of several experiencers and gives the reader an understanding of
what it is like to live life as an experiencer. I discuss the
psychology, the sociology, the characteristics of hypnosis and
it's propensity toward confabulation, alternative hypotheses,
etc. This is not a book for the nuts and bolts ufologist, as the
emphasis is upon social science.

But I suppose that some people will criticize anyone who departs
from their own personal belief system. If I feared criticism, I
wouldn't have engaged in UFO and abduction research and
investigation at all. Feel free to disagree, but please don't
rush to criticize my work with only a cursory understanding of
it or because you don't like my topic.
