Alien Infiltration vs. Mind Games

When, in the mid-1980s, plans were formulated by the iron-fist regime of then-Prime Minister Thatcher to base nuclear “Cruise” missiles at strategic military bases in the British Isles, it provoked massive demonstrations on the part of the general public – and particularly at a military establishment called Greenham Common.

As a result of the planned placement of missiles at Greenham Common, a large group of women peace-protesters set up camp outside the base. It wasn’t long, however, before many of the women began to experience a series of disturbing symptoms, including deep depression, overwhelming anxiety attacks, intense migraine-like headaches, alarming losses of short-term memory, and much more of a distinctly mind-destabilizing nature.


As a direct result of this alarming and highly suspicious development, theories began to quickly develop and circulate to the effect that the women were being specifically targeted with electromagnetic weaponry, as part of an intensive effort to bring their demonstrations – which had generated a large amount of support – to an abrupt and permanent end.

This was no wide-eyed conspiracy theory, either: even Britain’s highly-respected Guardian newspaper reported the story in a serious fashion. In a March 10, 1986 article for the newspaper titled Peace Women Fear Electronic Zapping at Base, it was reported that the military possessed  “…an intruder detection system called BISS, Base Installation Security System, which operates on a sufficiently high frequency to bounce radar waves off a human body moving in the vicinity of a perimeter fence.”


Is it possible that similar, but far more sophisticated, technologies might be applied in relation to the alien abduction phenomenon? Pretty much everyone, I’m sure, who is acquainted with Mysterious Universe will also be aware of at least some of the controversies pertaining to accounts of so-called alien abduction. And, for the most part at least, it all began on the night of September 19, 1961.

On that night, Betty and Barney Hill, a married couple from New Hampshire, were driving home from Canada when they were subjected to a terrifying experience. Until their arrival home, there was little to indicate that anything untoward had happened during the course of the journey, however.

After some months of unexplained emotional distress, the couple could take no more, and they sought assistance from Benjamin Simon, a Boston-based psychiatrist and neurologist. Subjected to rigorous time-regression hypnosis, both Betty and Barney recalled what had taken place during that missing two hours. Astonishingly, they provided very close account of encounters with seemingly alien beings who had taken the pair on-board some form of craft, and who had subjected them to a variety of distressing physical examinations.

Since that day, hundreds – perhaps even thousands – of similar accounts have surfaced throughout the world. A turning point came in 1981 with the publication of Budd Hopkins’ book Missing Time. Detailing a number of such accounts, Hopkins put forward a theory suggesting that at least one extraterrestrial species was involved in the routine abduction of human beings. Hopkins’ later work revealed a potentially far more sinister link to the abductions: namely, that the aliens were kidnapping people as part of some genetic operation, the goal of which was the production of a half-alien, half-human hybrid race.

There is, however, another aspect to the alien abduction mystery – one that is, in some ways, even more controversial than the extraterrestrial hypothesis. There are those researchers and eye-witnesses (or perhaps “victims” would be a much better term) who believe that alien abductions have nothing to do with the activities of real-life extraterrestrials, but are, in reality, the result of clandestine work undertaken by military agencies and departments.

So the theory goes, staff attached to military projects use the alien abduction motif as a carefully-camouflaged cover to allow for the continued testing of new technologies, such as mind-altering and mind-controlling drugs, and sophisticated hypnotic techniques.


An example of a case of alleged alien abduction that appears to have been part of a sophisticated mind-control operation is described by Alison, a woman from Arizona, who lives on a ranch not too far from the town of Sedona. From the age of twenty-seven to thirty-one, Alison was subjected to at least five kidnappings that bore all the hallmarks of the classic alien abduction scenario.

On each occasion, she was in her living-room, either reading or watching TV, when her two pet dogs – Lucy and Summer – began to act in a distressed fashion, pacing around the room and whimpering. At that point, things always became a blur, and Alison would later find herself in a different part of the house with several hours of time having passed. She would always awake feel groggy, and with a pounding headache and dry mouth.

For days after the weird experiences, she would dream of the moment when things would begin to go awry – which always resulted in a complete loss of electricity inside the house, a deep humming noise emanating from outside the large living-room window, and powerful and intensely bright lights enveloping the room.

In her semi-conscious state, Alison would see small shadowy figures scuttling around the room. They would then carry her outside onto a small craft where she was subjected to a gynecological examination and some form of nasal probing. She would then be returned to another part of the house and the aliens would leave. It was only after the aliens had departed that the intense humming noise would cease.

On what Alison believes to have been the fifth abduction, however, the mysterious humming sound abruptly came to a sudden halt, only a few seconds after her cosmic visitors had entered the room. At that point, Alison recalled – significantly, not in a later dream on this occasion but in real time – she began to slowly regain her senses. And, very surprisingly, so did the aliens. In their place was not a group of frail-looking bald-headed, black-eyed “Grays,” but a number of large and burly men wearing what looked like suspiciously like black military fatigues.


According to Alison, the men then suddenly started to back away slowly. And, as Alison began to regain her senses, one of them held his hand up “as if to say ‘stay where you are,” and continued to do so until they had exited the ranch house.

Alison made her still-slightly-groggy way to the living-room window – just in time to see the group men jump climb aboard not a state-of-the-art extra-terrestrial spacecraft, but instead a very terrestrial-looking black helicopter. At a height of several hundred feet, a powerful lamp was suddenly turned on by someone aboard the helicopter that lit up the dark sky around her property.

Today, Alison has cast aside her ufological beliefs, and firmly believes that as a result of a combination of subliminal hypnosis, mind-altering technologies, and perhaps even non-lethal weaponry designed to temporary disable her nervous system and bodily movement, she was ingeniously made to think she was an alien abductee. But that in reality, she was merely the guinea-pig for the testing of sophisticated weaponry designed to affect and manipulate both mind and body.

Maybe she’s right…

    “Today, Alison has cast aside her ufological beliefs”

    I find this to be a simplistic response to a complex spread of phenomena that appears to date back to paleolithic times. Who was doing the mind control throughout human history, long before humanity’s tech for such existed?

    It’s been widely theorised, as I’m sure most of us know, that tales of abductions attributed to fairies and other ‘supernatural’ beings in less educated times may have been examples of – someone or something ‘not us’ – behind this activity throughout human history.

    The problem is that human beings seem uncomfortable with uncertainty – the explanation has to be absolute: ‘Explanation A’ or ‘Explanation B’. People want an either/or answer. But what if the answer is “all or none of the above”?

    Looking at the frightening history of MKUltra and other shadowy mind control projects, I’ve no problem in accepting that some abductions may indeed be a smokescreen for unscrupulous covert agencies.

    But one can turn this theory right back on its proponents. A clever way for ETs to hide their activities would be to implant the idea that they’re not ETs at all, and make it seem like their sudden unmasking as ‘human’ is a mistake, a glitch. Who knows? We could chase our tails on this hall of mirrors forever I guess.

    That said, if you think about it, Alison’s assertions about her abduction begins to look shaky when you examine them with a skeptical eye:

    “… the men then suddenly started to back away slowly. And, as Alison began to regain her senses, one of them held his hand up “as if to say ‘stay where you are,”

    Let me get this straight: using mind control techniques far in advance of known psychopharmacology, they drug her and make her see Greys. Making somebody consistently hallucinate a highly specific thing – Greys cognitively ‘overlaid’ over the real human bodies of the covert agents in her mind – that kind of hallucinogen would be very advanced indeed.

    This is not your corner pharmacist you’re dealing with – it would require massive illegal research, many neuroscience and cognitive specialists, and most significantly, coupled with the will to ruthlessly protect the secrecy of the programme.You talk, you die.

    So instead, they just ‘back away’ when they realise their experiment has failed? Why? Because after easily subduing and violating her, suddenly now they’re wary of her? I find that hard to swallow.

    They don’t put her under again and simply wipe her memory? We already have drugs than can cause permanent loss of segments of memory – but they, with their advanced mind control drugs, leave in their stealth copter, with all their resources to restrain her and have their way again?

    They leave, their cover blown with unpredictable consequences? What if someone significant believes her and starts looking in all the right places?

    What covert agency has *ever* been so timid in covering its tracks? They seem to be invariably ruthless in doing so. Like with a known covert mind control programme – MKUltra – throwing people out of hotel windows as fake suicides (such as Dr. Frank Olson), it’s been implied, was standard practice during that program.

    Alison’s abductors’ behaviour seems odd if they’re a ruthless human agency that experiments on its own citizens – but it might make sense if she was *meant* to see the ‘mistake’.

    So in my opinion, for what it’s worth, in some cases it may well be human covert skullduggery at work. In others, Ets. In others, time travellers maybe. In others still, beings from other planes of existence. In others, mental illness or outright hoaxes. And in yet others, something bizarrely Fortean, something so outside our understanding of reality that speculation on it is almost pointless.

    Who knows? Why assume that there’s just one answer to all this? No single theory I’ve heard of seems to fit all cases of ufo sightings, interactions and abduction claims.

    Nick wasn’t that an episode of something like The Champions where was it Richard or Craig was captured by aliens who turned out to be enemy agents brainwashing him in an abandoned film studio?

    My point being if Alison’s happy she’s solved her situation and she’s at peace with herself good for her but I personally find it quite odd the moment she cottons on what’s ‘really’ happening all these burly militia types instead of saying “You’re going nowhere darlin’!” or even “Put her back under we’ll have t’ work out how she overcame the protocol” run for the hills like a bunch of Blutos after Popeye’s swallowed spinach.

    In other words in their own way each version of events’re as unreal and dream like as the other.

    That’s why I always say to anyone who might happen to find themselves on the other side of the mirror or falling down the rabbit’s hole you don’t need to believe or disbelieve any of it especially if it’s true so just do a Buddha and sit there watching Mara and his daughters offering you the world or threatening you with eternity in hell as if it’s all just some inexplicable episode of Lost on the telly or some peculiar virtual reality game you can’t actually remember starting to play.

    But the same’s equally true of real life as I kept explaining to a mate of mine who liked to mock people who undergo high strangeness. “Nonsense in real life everything’s clear and straightforward and everyone knows what’s what.”

    In his case what literally put him in a padded cell was going absolutely berserk after finding out he had bollock cancer and getting home early expecting sympathy from the missus only to catch her in bed with someone else.

    Great Britain needs to elect real leaders like PM Thatcher to deal with the social decay brought by socialism and islamification…

    It seems far more likely that the [tens, hundreds] of thousands of Abductees who have become aware and come forth to disclose their remarkably similar experiences with ET are telling the truth than that military Black Ops types can make themselves look like 4 foot tall Greys and control volition, perception, and memory in ways decades ahead of Earthling neuroscience.

    The real questions to ask are “What instrumentation can serial abductees use to capture their captors or otherwise empirically validate their experiences?”, and, “How many abductees have been taken and never returned?” Perhaps we’re only hearing from those the aliens have rejected as unsuitable; is that the major fraction or the minor fraction of the total number of abductees? And, of those that are returned, how many – or how few – ever actually recall it, hypnotically or otherwise? What if the ‘memory cap’ is 99% effective?

    Since some abductions are nonphysical, ET demonstrates the technical capability to extract, hold in stasis, and reimplant human Souls. Whistleblowers report that ET refers to the abductees as “Containers”. If you were going to move a large population across interstellar space, you wouldnt bring the meat along. You’d carry the Souls in a box, and gin up some suitable biology on the other end to transplant them into. Suppose that none of the “successful” abductions has ever been reported, as the newly instantiated presence has no intention of disclosing the fact that they’re walking around in someone else’s meatbag?

    Even if some “abductions” are military/intelligence experiments, it’s likely only a tiny fraction of claimed abductions. Experimental abductees probably would be carefully selected subjects. Location would have to be a major selection criteria. The risk of detection is too high in heavily populated areas (even using silent, black helicopters). I would expect experimental abductions would more likely take place in rural or remote areas (the Hills) as well as in detached, single-family residences that are isolated from their nearest neighbors either by distance or a very heavy screening of greenery. I also think that over the span of time in which people have been claiming abduction (since the 1960s), at least a one or two witnesses to such military exercises would have surfaced.

    By the way, a version of Alison’s story was used in an episode of The X-Files. Mulder is abducted by aliens, but begins coming to during his abduction and the aliens transform into US military personnel.

  • Ken

    You lost me at “iron-fist regime.”

  • NickRedfern

    Really? I don’t think so.

  • ObayJuan

    Here is something for you to think about. According to purchase orders, the military, perhaps the airforce, had purchased over 65,000 dart guns from Palmer Industry (Palmer Cap-Chur systems) from 1972-1984 and enough ketamine to dose a million subjects of about 200lbs. The types of darts purchased during that time were designed for thin skinned primates, not for dogs, not for bear or cats of any size, but primates.

    Ketamine, when introduced subcutaneously, acts within seconds and the subject may or may not remember the event, depending on dose size, and what is remembered is a very hazy dreamlike memory with gaps of logic or continuity. The subject, while under the influence, is ridged and in a highly suggestible state in the sense that their body can be easily manipulated. Bend their arms and the arms remain in that position, same with their legs, etc. The subject can be made to sit by simply bending them at the waist and setting them in a sitting posiotion, hold a crawling position, made to hold a salute, etc.

    I am not suggesting that the airforce did anything wrong, I am just asking why the airforce needed dart guns, primate darts and ketamine? Were they afraid of a chimp attack at one of their bases? I suppose that is a possibility.

  • Bobaloo Jones

    Don’t you remember the end? That’s what made it possibly my favorite episode. The military personnel find themselves abducted by real aliens, sitting there saying “this can’t be happening, this can’t be happening” That was a great episode, along with the Lord of the Underworld.

  • andy

    I think the alien abductions are real and the military are one step behind abducting the abductee’s to see what’s really going on…just a thought

  • TimMullins

    You made that response a year ago eh? Well, if you happen to revisit, think about it again in this post Snowden world. Now you know the true agenda of the socialist crowd, and it’s obviously not the warm, fuzzy, touchy, feely concept they pretend it is. It’s called United Nations Agenda 21, which is allegedly voluntary. Try to tell the Aussies it’s voluntary. They already have laws enforcing it in Queensland. Make no mistakes about this, only one nation has ever managed to implement a successful form of socialism that’s acceptable, and they’ve done it twice. Once in ancient times, and again today. But the left side of the aisle folks won’t be adopting that version. It will be more along the lines of a gulag. what do you think all this surveillance is about?

  • TimMullins

    Glad somebody else spotted the holes in her story. I hate being alone. While there are abduction stories you can’t dismiss, this is not one of them.

  • J.Griffin

    He’s right.

    Season 3
    Ep. 20
    “Jose Chung’s from Outer Space”

    the story is also being played out in other venues elsewhere,
    as well.

    It’s becoming quite popular,really-
    even Nick seems quite enthralled with it.

    He does try to consistently reinforce the “explains some but not all events” disclaimer,though.

    “It was all just a psych experiment by past departments”,
    but you can trust us now….

  • J.Griffin

    Must be a big part of why “Sy-Fy” is often so spotty,chaotic and incomprehensible-
    it makes it that much easier to pass off
    any unknown or controversial issue or event off
    as “science fiction”.

    There is so much “suspend belief (or disbelief) in movies&TV now
    that I can’t even watch most of it anymore…
    but I guess that’s why they call TV “programming”
    and that’s why I’ve always preferred reading to TV.
