There are many people around the world who have seen a UFO, alien or weird phenomenon. You may not be one of them, but would you trust fellow human beings who have seen and reported them?
Considered a pseudoscience in the mainstream scientific world, ufology, or the study of UFOs, is largely dismissed. Because we have learned to associate reality with what the majority accepts, anything that falls outside of this is considered taboo, which can, in many ways, be a good thing, as it keeps morality in check.
However, we need to understand that UFOs do not fall in the moral compass. It is a phenomenon that has often been buried time and again by many skeptics and governments in spite of many reports being provided by authoritative individuals.
Every year, Phoenix, Arizona, hosts the International UFO Congress, the biggest annual gathering for ufology. The conference has a special enthusiasm among the ufologists who are trying to prove skeptics wrong while also simply exposing the truth through stories, evidence, and more.
Although the ufologists eagerly explain that the UFOs are not just a perception, but a reality, the massive gap between the belief and knowledge keeps the scientific and pseudoscientific apart from each other. The ufologists have been trying to pump in maximum energy to prove their point, and the US government claims to look into the phenomenon in a serious formal way for almost six decades now. There is a constant looming fear that ufology will always be left for the pseudoscientists to ponder.
Feeling of happiness
According to Bob Davis, a retired neuroscientist, people’s fear of being ridiculed by others is the main reason why ufology is not taken seriously. Davis is a member of the Dr Mitchell Foundation for Research into Extraterrestrial Encounters. The team had studied 3,057 individuals who have fought against the fear of ridicule and instead spoken up about their encounters with a physical craft associated with some form of non-human intelligence. Their research, according to Davis, has led to some very intriguing insight, one of which is that such UFO encounters make the witnesses… happy.
One might assume fear or curiosity would be the two biggest words associated with such encounters, but Davis notes:
What we’ve found is that about 85 percent of the people who are experiencing this phenomenon are being transformed in a very positive behavioral or psychospiritual way. Generally, people become more humane, experience a oneness with the world. They become less interested in organized religion, they become more spiritual, they have less interest in monetary values, and become more sensitive to the ecological welfare of our planet, among many other psychospiritual outcomes. It is a real and powerful outcome that is generally ignored by the UFO community.
Are people ever hurt by UFOs?
People occasionally report feeling pain or receiving an injury during a UFO encounter or abduction. Physical effects include eye irritation, sunburn, skin cuts, and sickness. After the experience, witnesses may have nightmares and feel anxious, and they may undergo personality changes or changes in their beliefs about important life issues. Witnesses, especially abductees, claim later UFO encounters and other experiences with the paranormal, such as poltergeist activity or the development of psychic powers.
One of the most famous UFO sightings resulting in injuries to witnesses involved two women, Betty Cash and Vicki Landrum, and Mrs. Landrum’s grandson, Colby, as they drove along a deserted Texas road during December 1980. In front of them, they saw a huge, brilliant, diamond-shaped object with flames shooting out from the bottom. Cash stopped the car and got out to have a better look at the UFO. The object radiated intense heat that softened the dashboard of her car. Terrified, Cash returned to the car and with the others, watched the UFO move away. As it did so, a squadron of helicopters appeared and surrounded the UFO. The witnesses followed the object and the helicopters until they disappeared in the distance. By the time the three reached home, all were feeling ill. Within a few hours, they developed sunburnlike blisters, nausea, and diarrhea. Betty Cash’s symptoms were the most severe, and she eventually sought medical treatment and was hospitalized as a burn victim. Her doctor concluded Cash was exhibiting symptoms of radiation sickness. The witnesses later sued the United States government, claiming it was responsible for their injuries. (They had identified the helicopters as Chinook twin-rotor helicopters used by the U.S. Army.) Their lawsuit was unsuccessful because they could never prove the UFO or the helicopters were devices owned and operated by the American government.
Feeling of a sexual desire
A survey conducted by a Panamanian paper revealed that 37 percent of the Panamanians felt sexual desire after spotting a UFO.
Diana Santanach, Director of Cid Gallup, reveals, “A desire for sex was the strongest feeling – according to the survey – among those who claim having seen a UFO, far above a sense of terror (17%). There is no specific explanation offered by the survey as to this reason.”
Nigel Watson, the author of the UFO Investigations Manual, says, ‘’Perhaps the anxiety and wonder of seeing something exceptional in the sky arouses the witness and accounts for these survey results. Some might claim that Randy aliens are deliberately sending out beams that will stimulate witnesses so that they can have their wicked way with them. The concept of breeding with aliens is nothing new. By the 1980s alien abduction researchers in the USA accepted that women are routinely abducted, impregnated and then re-abducted a few weeks later for the extraction of the hybrid foetus. These activities explained the short-lived pregnancies experienced by female abductees. As for male abductees, they either claimed to have had intercourse with an alien woman or their sperm was extracted by mechanical means by the aliens.”
Whitley Strieber, in his book Communion, described of being abducted by the aliens who inserted a 1ft (0.3m)-long anal probe inside him. According to him, it seemed like a living entity, however on removal, he was surprised to see that it was a mechanical device.
The case put forth by Antonio Villas Boas is also worth mentioning. According to him, he was dragged inside a flying saucer in 1957 where he was forced to have sexual intercourse with a beautiful alien lady. When he left, she pointed at her stomach and then at the sky implying that she would have the child in outer space.
For some ufologists, these reports may seem like the aliens are conducting some hybrid breeding program to create another race of beings. The purpose of the creation is unknown and can only be imagined! However, skeptics are of the opinion that these experiences are a product of sleep paralysis, wherein people are unable to discriminate between the reality and the fantasy during the sleeping and waking period.
Davis says, “What we’ve found is that about 85 percent of the people who are experiencing this phenomenon is being transformed in a very positive behavioral or psychospiritual way. People become more humane, experience a oneness with the world. They become less interested in organized religion; they become more spiritual, they have less interest in monetary values, and become more sensitive to the ecological welfare of our planet, among many other psychospiritual outcomes. It is a real and powerful result that is generally ignored by the UFO community.”
Davis adds, “People are reporting that they become aware, based on their interaction with the phenomenon, that there is indeed a multi-dimensional reality, that there is life after death.” The research team believes that positive transformations help in experiencing a spiritual awakening. Davis says, “Call it psychospirtual, call it religious, call it whatever, but the vast majority of these people are transformed in a very positive way.” While the research revealed that people felt happy, many experts strongly assert that people feel a strong sexual desire on seeing a UFO.
