Question - What would you estimate is the total number of visual sightings
of UFOs or other paranormal phenomena that you believe you have
personally had? And, is it still ongoing?
Answer - I just had a UFO sighting several weeks ago while driving at
night. It is difficult to give a specific number since some of the
objects I've seen in the past might have been UFOs but I didn't feel
confident enough to call them such. One has to be careful. I can
now say with certainty that I had a sighting when I was about 15
years old. But, I believe that this sighting involved an actual
abduction, as well, and I believe my memory of the experience was
mostly erased by the crew of the UFO.
However, I can safely say I have had "dozens" of visual sightings
later in life. In 2001, alone, I determined 39 UFO sightings out of
145 objects tracked across the sky that summer. Many of the objects
were manmade satellites, I'm sure. But some were not. A
few "wobbled" rhythmically as they traveled across the sky while some
actually changed course. These were definitely not airplanes,
either. We think that the "wobblers" consisted of a small light
attached to the outer rim of a circular, rotating object as it moved
in a single direction creating a "sine-wave" pattern.
In one case, a light slowed down to let an airplane go across its
path. This was a highly UFO-active region where residents had become
experienced at watching for strange lights in the sky, and on
occasion, solid, 3-dimensional alien hardware hovering about. Two
weeks into that summer, I caught one ring of lights on film during
UFO activity for my very first UFO photograph. The object showed up
during a long-exposure of 10-15 minutes duration. None of us saw
it. But, whatever it was, it was hovering in place for an
undetermined amount of time while we were visually observing
suspicious lights traveling high over our heads toward that very part
of the sky. The ring of lights was well placed in the center of my
photograph as if it posed intentionally for our team of field
investigators to capture.
On a few occasions, I explored ghost phenomena with some of my field
investigator colleagues and actually determined that ghosts were real
when I experienced and recorded certain noises in a reportedly
haunted building. The noises came out of thin air or from places
where no human being was present. They had no logical sources,
otherwise. But, my supernatural experiences seem to be confined to
just the ghost hunting excursions. They did not seem to be connected
to me, personally.
Question - What makes you feel that you have actually been "abducted"?
What clues did you find that led you to this conclusion. Also, do
you feel you have been abducted since?
Answer - I remembered looking up at an object coming over a tree line
toward me and seeing three small lights spaced a great distance
apart. Red, white and blue, if memory serves me correctly. Whatever
it was, it was large, probably larger than a dirigible. Yet, it was
completely silent. Dirigibles are very noisy. I was standing and
straddling a bicycle on my paper route. I was 15 years old. Back
then, I was a big aviation enthusiast.
Typically, I would watch ordinary airplanes fly over, sometimes all the way across the sky. I
knew aircraft types and dreamed of being a pilot some day. Yet, this
object had none of the traits of anything I had ever known. I could
not see its body, only the lights. That was strange. It was
completely silent, and that was strange. I only watched it for a few
moments, cocking my head trying to figure out what type craft it
was. But, then, when it got almost even with me and only a few
hundred feet high, I suddenly became totally disinterested in it and
looked back down at what I was doing. That was also strange for me.
I looked over my paper route customer collections book I was
examining and suddenly got the urge to just go home instead of
banging on a few more doors to get folks to pay their weekly dues.
That was the strangest thing of all, suddenly having no interest at
all in the object.
As a matter of fact, I forgot about it immediately as if it was no
big deal. Later, I did not understand why I reacted the way I did.
And I still often wondered about the object. It didn't seem to make
sense to me. I had just become familiar with UFOs a couple of years
earlier and remember telling my mother the next day that I "might
have" seen a UFO the night before. However, her reply was, "Why did
you come home so late, last night?" I told her I didn't and that I
came straight home early. She chuckled and insisted that, no, I did
not. I was confused and felt something wasn't right about all this,
but my mind seem "skewed" and I didn't want to dwell on it. I did
file it away in my long-term memory, though, and wondered about it
from time to time over the years. Back then, (in the mid-sixties)
little was known about UFOs and almost nothing about "abductions".
All I knew about UFOs was from the Condon Report and a few other
paperbacks. Now, I can see an abduction and "missing time" in this
Jumping forward in time. . . a few weeks after my very first series
of field investigations ended in the summer of 2001 at a UFO-active
property, I received a "gift" from the abductors that showed me
without a doubt that abductions were real. I discovered fresh
surgery on the center of my chest with a small, laser-thin incision
in the middle of a "scoop mark" depression where tissue had been
removed underneath my skin. I was impressed with the neatness of the
work. I had never had surgery before.
I wanted to take pictures of it and remembered that I had film in my
camera, but suddenly, I lost interest completely. However, my
intellect then took over and told me to shoot pictures even if it
was "against my will". I did, and I was glad. In 18 hours, the
abduction-related scoop mark was completely gone leaving no trace. I
had to guess at the focus with the old-style camera but managed to
shoot 11 pictures before I couldn't shoot against my will, anymore.
Two pictures appeared in focus enough to keep as proof that this
really happened. I had been having a few "indoor" experiences
earlier in the year and had tried to mentally prepare myself for any
I was determined to let my intellect rule any time there was an
anomaly. In this case, I reasoned my way around the subconscious
instruction that was trying to make me leave the anomaly alone. My
guess is that I have been abducted many times in my life. But I was
now being allowed to know it for some unknown reason. Incidentally,
I had no knowledge of when and where the abduction happened earlier
that day. The memory erasure was very cleanly done. But, I was able
to estimate by the rate of healing that the scoop mark (punch biopsy)
was performed approximately early afternoon on that day.
I feel certain that abductions continue in my life. I know about
them, now, and I guess that the beings see no need to risk possibly
traumatizing me further, so I still have to search for clues. It can
still be a scary thing to me if it happens to me, unexpectedly. And
If I was to wait for an expected abduction, that would probably make
me nervous then scared. Perhaps the abductors know what's best for
me. I hope so. I do know that the abductors go to a lot of effort
to ensure that we do not suffer. This is true in my case and almost
everyone else I personally know.
Question - How many times do you think you have been abducted and at what
point did you realize you were going through this?
Answer - First of all, I am not one of those people that wish they
could be abducted some day. Because we really and truly do not know
what we are dealing with and just who it is we are dealing with.
When dealing with other intelligent species, with hidden agendas, it
is not a good idea to approach things naively. I first suspected I
was being abducted on occasion when I watched the 1999 TV
documentaries and saw what abductees were reporting, how the
abductors could actually manipulate the human mind and selectively
erase memory or install a false memory for the person to take home
and dwell on. They mentioned a condition called, "Sleep Paralysis"—
something I thought only happened to me.
It looked to me as if there
was no way to know if one was being abducted unless the abductors
left clues for abductees to later find. They seemed to have
virtually full control in deciding their level of detection by the
human race. But when they saw that I finally knew of their existence
in 2001, they not only gave me a chance to see a scoop mark they left
on the center of my chest, they left me with a shirt that had a
perfectly round hole in it the diameter of a jumbo drinking straw,
right in the center of the chest.
Physical evidence, something they knew I personally wanted very
badly. I could now look back over my life and realize that I had
been abducted since at least age five. No telling how many times I
have been taken since then. I have been able to monitor my clothes
for new holes and have confirmed at least a dozen abductions just
since I started seriously investigating in 2000. It could be that
they and I are working together with each other but on a subconscious
With the human subconscious mind being so isolated from the conscious
mind, I often wonder if we are not living "dual lives," one in the
conscious realm, the other in the subconscious realm. We sleep
roughly a third of our entire lives. Who knows what goes on when we
are away from the conscious state. I do remember seeing a UFO in
2000. About 48 hours later, I went to bed, and before I fell asleep,
I suddenly lifted out of my body, went straight up into the night
air, had my memory erased of the events that followed, then
remembered coming back down from approximately the same height above
ground, settling perfectly into my body still under the covers. And,
I had the impression I had been taken somewhere and shown some
things, but what I don't know. Strangely, I had the distinct feeling
that, subconsciously, I had experienced this before.
I knew little about "out-of-body" experiences at the time, but the
odd details I did remember matched what I later learned about this
type of experience from past researchers. It definitely happened.
How I floated through the ceiling so easily is astonishing. I did
not know that out-of-body abductions really occur. I had heard of
this on an occasion or two in the past but had given it little
There is so much we do not know about our existences here on Earth.
One thing I now realize, though; large numbers of people are being
taken, and many, many times throughout their lives. I dare say at
least 10% of the U.S. population, alone. I realize that this is a
staggering number. But almost everyone knows somebody that is
getting abducted, and in most cases, the abductees do not realize it,
at least not fully.
