Grey Aliens, E.T. Abductions, Demons, Fairies and Cryptoterrestrials: Could They All Be Connected?

Just a few days ago I was chatting with a friend in the field of Ufology about the origins of all those strange phenomena listed in the title above. Is it feasible that every one of those strange breeds of creature are interconnected? I say "Yes." There's a good reason for that. You only have to look at the issue of alien abductions to make a good case that these things are all part of one. You'll see what I mean. The vast majority of all alien abduction cases have certain things in common: the abductee is kidnapped and then returned to their home or vehicle after the experience. Blood, DNA, skin tamples and more are taken by the emotionless, black-eyed Greys. The events almost always occur at night. People are taken from their beds. Or, they're studied on their beds. And, very often, there is a sexual aspect to all of this. Victims of the Greys find themselves with what has become known as "missing time." And, on many occasions, the targets find themselves temporarlly unable to move: paranormal paralysis, you might very well say. Now, we come to the important part of this: all of the alien-detailed phenomena described above is also an undeniable part of the world of the ancient fairies, demons, and other supernatural "things." Let's take this a bit further.

In a 1900 book, History of the Devil and the Idea of Evil, written by Dr. Paul Carus, we get to see what some of our ancient ancestors had to say about the unholy offspring that a coupling between an Incubus and a man, or a Succubus and a woman could create. Carus recorded: "The theory of incubi and succubi is presented in all its indecency on the authority of St. Thomas Aquinas, who in his commentary on Job (Chap. 40) interprets Behemoth (a large animal, probably the elephant) as the Devil, and derives from the mention of the animal’'s sexual strength (verse 16) the theory that evil demons can have intercourse with human beings. Satan is supposed to serve first as a succubus (or female devil) to men, and then as an incubus (or male devil) to women; and St. Thomas declares that children begotten in this way ought to be regarded as the children of the men whom Satan served as succubus [italics mine]. They would, however, the more cunning than normal children on account of the demoniacal influence to which they were exposed in their pre-natal condition. Matthæus Paris mentions that within six months one such incubus-baby developed all its teeth and attained the size of a boy of seven years, while his mother became consumptive and died”

It's a fact that the so-called "incubus-baby" of centuries long-gone sounds very much like the cross-bred human-extraterrestrial babies of alien abduction lore. Now, let's look at another important issue. Many have experienced horrifying visitations from a phenomenon called the “Old Hag.” It’s a creature that surfaces all around the world, but which is most curiously prevalent, for reasons that remain unknown, amongst the people of Newfoundland, Canada. As its name suggests, this breed of creature manifests as a white-haired, withered and wailing, ancient crone. A welcome visitor, she is not. And, she's an expert when it comes to the matter of directed paralysis. The prevailing, skeptical view on encounters with an Incubus or a Succubus is that they are provoked by something called Hypnagogia, better known as “Sleep Paralysis.” It is an age-old phenomenon that was finally given a name in the 19th century, by a French physician, Louis Ferdinand Alfred Maury. Essentially, sleep paralysis is a physical state that is somewhere between being awake and being asleep. At that hazy moment, when transition from one distinct state to another is occurring – and, more importantly, if and when that transition is violently interrupted – both body and mind act in decidedly strange fashion. 

Sleep Paralysis plunges a person into a dream-like condition in which they, literally, cannot move. For all intents and purposes they are physically paralyzed, and that includes their vocal chords, too: the person is unable to shout, or scream, for help. They also, typically, detect a deeply malevolent presence in the room in which they are sleeping – or, on other occasions, experiencers will describe predatory forms slowly, and in creeping fashion, approaching the room. It’s an experience that can be accompanied by strange and menacing voices, incomprehensible words screamed or whispered at the terrified soul in rapid-fire time, and the sense of something dangerous looming over the affected person, as they struggle to both wake up and move. When they finally manage to do so, the dark atmosphere and attendant malevolent entity are gone, as in practically immediately. Those skeptical of the idea that Sleep Paralysis has external origins would likely say that the large number of Old Hag encounters that originate in Newfoundland are caused by cultural conditioning, and subconscious knowledge of how the experience should play out. Of only one thing can we be certain: when Hypnagogia occurs, an absolute multitude of supernatural forms appear out of the ether and subject us to violent, sexual encounters. The parallels between today's alien abductions and demons and the Old Hag are clear to see. Indeed, it's practically impossible to dismiss them as separate: the deep connections are there for all to see.

Beyond any shadow of doubt, one of the most ominous and sinister of all assumed supernatural entities is Lilith. A predatory, evil creature that has existed since time immemorial, she preys on humans and is associated with sex, reproduction, the stealing of newborn babies, and the birthing of half-human, half-demonic monstrosities. Lilith is a hideous thing whose origins can be traced back to ancient Mesopotamia and Sumerian lore – which, geographically-speaking, is rather notable. That “Lilith,” the word, translates into Hebrew as “night hag,” is a good indication of the nature and appearance of this vile creature, which is to be avoided at all costs. Sleep Paralysis plunges a person into a dream-like condition in which they, literally, cannot move. For all intents and purposes they are physically paralyzed, and that includes their vocal chords, too: the person is unable to shout, or scream, for help.

When they finally manage to do so, the dark atmosphere and attendant malevolent entity are gone, as in practically immediately. Now, onto the "Little People" of times long gone. In reality, they were very different to what many might believe.

The fairies of the Isle of Man, for example, were very far removed from what one might be accustomed to seeing on a modern day Christmas card or on the Disney Channel. Contrary to the belief that fairies grow to barely five to six inches tall, the creatures of the old island reached heights similar to those of young children – that’s to say roughly around three feet tall. They were most often described as looking very old, wizened, and even sinister. They dwelled deep underground, in darkened hollows, in mounds that opened up into vast, cavernous, winding regions, and in magical domains where – yet again – aging was non-existent, disease was unknown, and, for all intents and purposes, life seemed to go on forever. In addition to that, the little people – like fairies all across the planet – had an obsession with human reproduction. They coldheartedly stole from the people of the Isle of Man newborn babies – usually males - from their cradles, sometimes replacing them with one of their own, magical kind. It was a creature termed a “changeling,” most often a fairy baby, but sometimes an ailing, very old fairy. On other occasions, the fairies left effigies, often carved out of wood, and known as the “stock’ or the “fetch,” which were designed to resemble a baby. In mere days, however, the effigy would degrade, revealing it to be nothing more than the rotted wood of an old tree. It hardly needs saying that none of these replacements offered any kind of comfort to the distraught parents, who just wanted their children returned as soon as possible. Unfortunately, they seldom were – if ever.

There was a very good reason why the fairies were so intent on kidnapping human babies: a staple part of fairy lore tells of how the creatures were very often blighted in their attempts to reproduce, with miscarriages and deformities leading the pack when it came to fairy births. So, they would try and strengthen their stock via the introduction of new blood: ours, to be precise. Now, something very important: There's no doubt that all of the phenomena above mirrors the alien abduction controversy. And, by realizing that, we should also realize that today's alien Greys are nothing but the ancient, diminutive magical entities of centuries ago. What all of this tells us is that we have no real understanding of what these creatures are. Demons? Aliens? Cryptoterrestrials? The "Litte People"? All we really know, even today, is that we're being meddled with, experimented on, and used. As for the "things" themselves, well, if we're honest with ourselves, we have to say we have zero understanding of what they are. Or, of their motives. What we do know, though, is that there's no reason to say that "it's all about aliens." There are multiple theories for all the above. But, we're still struggling for answers.
