Example text

Some abductees report that the aliens do 26 ABD U CTION n o t wish t o bring about change through coercion b u t rather through a change of consciousness that would lead to our choos­ ing a different course. " The abductees usually report fewer details of their return to Earth than they do of their abduction. Usually they are returned to the bed or car from which they were taken, but sometimes "mis­ takes" are made. They may be returned quite a distance, or even miles, away from their home. This is rare, and I have seen no cases of this kind, although Budd Hopkins has told me of such in­ stances.

7. A distinct but important aspect of this kind of transpersonal experience is an abductee 's sense of possessing a double human/alien identity. In their alien selves they may discover themselves doing many of the things that the "other" aliens have done to them and to other human beings, such as study­ ing their minds or even carrying out reproductive procedures. ALIEN ABDUCTIONS: AN OVERVIEW 35 The alien identity seems to be connected in some way with the soul of the human self, and one of the tasks the abductee then confronts is the integration of their human and alien selves, which takes on the character of a reensoulment of their human­ ity.

Whether this transformational ele­ ment is intrinsic to the abduction phenomenon itself, dependent in part on integrative therapeutic work with the investigator, or is a by-product of coming to terms with the traumatic nature of the ex­ periences, is one of the questions that will be explored in this book. TRAUMA The traumatic aspect has four dimensions. First are the experi­ ences themselves. To be paralyzed and taken against one's will by strange beings into a foreign enclosure and subjected to intrusive, rapelike procedures, some of which are especially humiliating to human dignity, is obviously highly disturbing.
