I just want to share an anecdote that kind of reinforces the
reality of these encounters and how just about any human being
might react. Budd Hopkins once relayed an account to me about a
man who had been riddled with unresolved fears and guilt for

During one of his hypnosis sessions the following comes out:

This man and his young son were travelling in their car along a
pretty desolate road when they spotted a UFO. The UFO lands,
blocking the cars' path, and the vehicle shuts down. Some of the
UFOs 'occupants' emerged from the craft, and they approached and
surrounded the stalled automobile. The father, in what must have
been a state of pure terror and blind panic pleaded with the
'aliens' to take his son and to leave him alone.

They did just that.

While reliving the experience during hypnosis this man had a
tremendous cathartic experience. The sense of relief that he
felt afterwards, from the release of the blocked and pent up
emotions along with, finally, knowing what was at the core of
his previously unresolved fears and guilt, had a markedly
beneficial and therapeutic effect on this individual.

The point?

This guy reacted to an impossible situation the way that many
others might have reacted, if confronted with similar
circumstances. Emotions run the gamut in terms of how people
feel and react when in a 'close contact' situation with a UFO or
its occupants. But fear, terror, and confusion, along with awe,
wonder and child-like amazement are all a part of the many
emotional responses any one of us might expect to experience to
such disturbingly close-encounters with the impossible.

There but for the Grace of God go you or I.
