Why alien abductions are down dramatically

Denise Stoner was 2½ years old the first time she remembers the alien taking her. She was at home in Hartford with her grandfather. Her mother was at the hospital giving birth to her younger sister. She remembers staring out a large picture window and seeing an egg-shaped object in the sky, hovering over some power lines. “What’s Humpty Dumpty doing up in the sky?” she asked. She remembers the fear in her grandfather’s face when he suggested it was time for bed.

Later that night, as she lay staring at her nursery rhyme-themed wallpaper, an entity walked through her wall. “He looked like a monk, he had a robe, and he was carrying a light. I wasn’t afraid of him,” she said. “He put out his other hand for me to take it, and I did. We walked out into the hallway.” The alien pointed his light at the wall, and they disappeared through it; she remembers being in a large, dome-shaped room with a lot of other children, and they seemed to be learning something. In the morning, she was back in her bed.

Since then, she says, she has been taken more than 50 times, from her home, from the street, from her car, the last time only three years ago, driving through the mountains in Colorado. Each time, it’s the same being responsible. “He looks like your typical gray [alien], but he’s one of the tall ones. It’s just the very subtle shape of his face, his chin is a little wider,” she explained. She calls him her escort. “There’s no friendship. . . . He comes to get me, and I know I’m going to be safe,” she said. “He’s also going to oversee whatever is done.”

  • @OP – He comes to get me, and I know I’m going to be safe,” she said. “He’s also going to oversee whatever is done.”

    Ah! A personified comfort blanket rather than a monster under the bed!

  • @OP – link – A small but stubborn percentage of alien abduction experiences defy clear scientific explanation,

    Rather like many other casually observed events.

    @OP link – but many of the rest can have a number of different physiological or psychological explanations, including epilepsy, which can be preceded by visual disruptions, narcolepsy, or sleep paralysis.

    Ah! If only the “believers” could accept this! –

    “He looks like your typical gray [alien], but he’s one of the tall ones.

    These experiences sound very like the “mystical revelations” of angels, demons, devils, cherubim, etc. in earlier ages!

  • Right away it is doubtful that too many people could have any recollection of when they were 2 and half years. This recollection is more likely a conflation of some prior hallucinations that she isn’t quite able to sort. Could have been more like 6 or 7 years. Folks who are prone to this stuff often experience a bit of memory disturbance as well. For that matter, everyone can be bit prone to memory disturbance, particularly as we age, over decades memory and recollection starts doing things like filling in voids and coloring things a bit but these folks are probably having a little more than common/normal.

    It’s good to see some exposure of these experiences from a neuroscience view. It’s amazing how the only models for them sustained or promoted by society, Hollywood and television, are supernatural (or mental disease). When I began to learn more about neuroscience (neurology), I was simply struck by how many hallucinatory experiences and perceptual disturbances have been well-known to science for decades or longer, some of them I had even experienced myself. But popular media hardly ever brings on a neurologist to provide some commentary. Even those programs that purport to “investigate” various paranormal reports or experiences often barely broach the neurological explanations or give equal time, if they do at all.
