Alien Abduction: A Phenomenon Of Inner Space Or Outer Space? If the UFO extraterrestrial hypothesis is controversial, then abductions of humans by alien beings is controversial squared, if not cubed. There’s intense polarisation on the issue, not just between UFO sceptics and UFO believers, but between UFO believers themselves. Many of the classic features of the alien-abduction experience date back to the first widely publicized modern abduction claim, the alleged abduction of Betty and Barney Hill. A married couple traveling through the White Mountains of New Hampshire, they saw a bright light in the sky that seemed to be following them.

Peppered throughout the recreated hypnosis sessions are intriguing flashbacks of the abduction itself, composed of moodily shot and fleeting glimpses of the confrontation, abduction and examination of the Hills by their alien captors. The presentation of their story is remarkably told in a straightforward, balanced and non-exploitive manner.   Strassman's research connects DMT with the pineal gland, considered by Hindus to be the site of the seventh chakra and by René Descartes to be the seat of the soul. DMT: The Spirit Molecule makes the bold case that DMT, naturally released by the pineal gland, facilitates the soul's movement in and out of the body and is an integral part of the birth and death experiences.

Benjamin An entire book can be devoted to the phenomenon of alien abductions that have been recorded across many countries at different times.

Investigators that looked into the “alien abduction” phenomenon say the “aliens” are not from outer space but instead inner space i.e. they are inter-dimensional. The “medical examination” to which abductees are said to be subjected, often accompanied by cruel, sadistic sexual manipulation, is reminiscent of the medieval tales of.
