Possible Indications of an Abduction Experience
The following may be useful in helping to determine whether a person has had an abduction or close encounter. Most abductees have several of these symptoms; one alone is not enough to point toward abduction. No abductees have all of them.
Psychological Stress Symptoms
Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or Post-traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSS) are ways of describing an emotional condition that may follow some profound dislocation of a person's basic assumptions about the world they once trusted and thought they understood. It is seen in some abductees, but is not specific to abductees. It is seen as well as in crime victims and in people who have experienced natural disasters.
Physical signs would be various scars, cuts, scratches, bruises, etc. with no explanation or knowledge of how they got there. In general, they tend to heal rapidly and without pain. They normally bleed very little or not at all. Some typical marks are described below.
These do not tend to be strongly diagnostic when considered alone, but some abductees have exhibited one or more of the following characteristics.
Alien Abductions are Evolution Oriented
by: Sally Suddock
One of the leading researchers investigating the alien abduction phenomenon said Saturday that he believes that a significant majority of such abductions are a goal-oriented, planned program with the ultimate purpose of spreading alien hybrids laterally through the Earth's population. "Take everything I say with a boulder of salt," said David Jacobs at the Bay Area UFO Expo in San Jose, California. "In fact, you should take everything all of us (UFO and ET) researchers say with a boulder of salt, because there are no UFO research standards" and a flock of theories on both phenomena, he cautioned his audience before offering his analysis of some 130 abduction cases he's studied. Jacobs was among 19 featured speakers at the conference over the weekend that reached not only an expected 3,000 registrants at the Double Tree Hotel, but potentially thousands through a webcast of the proceedings over the Internet at www.ufocommunity.com.
Jacobs related numerous common experiences reported by abductees he has interviewed through the process of regression through hypnosis. He said he's worked with more than 130 individuals and more than 800 sessions of regression over the past 35 years, all of which has led him to the conclusion that the cases are part of an overall, planned program by one or more alien races that has been occurring for approximately 100 years. A professor of history at Temple University, Jacobs holds a doctorate degree and has authored several papers on the phenomenon, the history of UFO encounters, and published this month with the University of Kansas: UFOs and Abductions: Challenging the Borders of Knowledge."
Virtually all of the abductees in his research recalled being placed on a table and undergoing procedures with devices extending from the ceiling or walls or wielded by the aliens. They have a strong sense that sperm or eggs have been taken during these procedures. In some cases, women have recalled fetal extractions. They describe the beings as having extremely small mouths and noses, but oversized, almond-shaped eyes. They vividly recall aliens staring at them, at extremely close range, and the sense of becoming one with the being through some kind of optical, neurological connection. And, virtually all the subjects Jacobs has studied experience "missing time" during the period in which they were taken. Virtually all of these individuals cannot recall the experience in normal consciousness, and many, said Jacobs, believe they hold "some kind of unnerving knowledge" that they cannot remember, even under hypnosis.
Other commonalities also have emerged, says Jacobs. For one, most abduction victims have undergone the experience from early childhood and the abductions have continued through their adulthood. Most, he said, also have earlier family members who were abductees — in short, he said, the phenomenon appears to be intergenerational. "We have seen no adult-onset single events," he said of his and other researchers' findings about the phenomenon.
"These abductions occur at infancy or toddler stage to a certain point of age — seldom beyond 80 years," he said. "We believe it's a program of 'mining' and 'harvesting' human reproductive cells. The conclusion is clear, he said, from frequent reports from abductees that they've seen "hybrid" beings during their experiences that resemble neither human nor alien. Further, he said, "the intergenerational phenomenon is a bombshell idea," discovered by his colleague Budd Hopkins, who also spoke at the conference. Jacobs said he asked a colleague who is a mathematician to calculate the number of generations it would take to abduct Earth's population. "I asked him to calculate how many generations it would be before everybody's an abductee," said Jacobs. "He said 7 generations," assuming no intermarriages between hybrids, but rather a "lateral" project of abduction. "If you work that backwards, this phenomenon could not have begun with the ancients," such as has been suggested about alien influence on Egyptian culture, for example. His colleague's 7-generations calculations led Jacobs to conclude that the alien program began some 100 years ago. And, he added, there are "significant amounts of evidence in family stories of this kind from this period."
Jacobs believes that alien abductions "began as a small program, but has grown much larger — "when you consider that abductees experience never less than 11 incidents per year — the dimensions of this tell you there's a lot going on here." He added that abductees report seeing "aircraft-hanger-sized rooms with 20, 200, even 500 tables of procedures occurring."
Are there alien hybrids among us? Jacobs believes that the answer is a certain affirmative. "There is ample evidence," he said. "Now what we must determine whether this phenomenon is a threat. Science should be looking at questions such as 'who are the abductors and what is their role' on the evolution of societies in the future.
