While not an abductee in the usual sense, I have had two
experiences that seem to resemble in all ways the abduction or
visitation experience and I do not know what to make of it and
refrain from saying much about them because of my own doubts on
the matter. I am sure there are others who have had such

One thing I have not had doubt on is interaction during
sightings which occurred when I was a teenager and there were
witnesses. That was when I became convinced communication was
possible. This was in two forms: light-beam transceiver and
telepathic. It is what really motivated me to study and
investigate the phenomena a long time ago. However, even this
type of experience is treated with extreme skepticism and I can
understand that. It just never occurred to me when I was young
that experimenting with this type of communication and obtaining
positive results would not be something anyone rushed to
replicate for themselves. Experiments I have tried in the last
decade or so have yielded no result.
