William -

Your thoughts are important and insightful. Investigators will
be well served if they give them full consideration. No doubt
about it, research in this realm will be challenging for a
number of reasons.

Although several strategies now exist to attack this problem
genetically, there is another way entirely - one can simply do
nothing for the moment. Genomic technology is advancing swiftly
and some authorities are projecting that a day when genomes may
be deciphered for $1,000 (US) is near. When that cost goal is
reached it may mark the emergence of genomics data as a quasi-
routine component of medical information employed by

The plummeting costs of sequencing offer two future
possibilities. One; as genomics determinations begin to be
reduced to routine medical practice, a hybrid entity might be
discovered by simple accident. The second; launching an
investigation (although still complicated) will not demand the
intervention of a benefactor like Laurance Rockefeller. While
taking full account of your ideas regarding assumptions and care
to safeguard subject identities, it seems certain more
investigators will have access to comprehensive genetic data in
the near future.

New massively parallel sequencing methods may enable data
capture from a single DNA molecule. This will revolutionize
genomic comparisons to reference sequences. Such data are going
to be important in noting how cancer cells could be destroyed
with specific therapeutic molecules or avoiding toxic drug
reactions in patients. Some recent issues of the journal Science
(4 February 2011, 11 February 2011) and Nature (10 February
2011) have several articles discussing the future of genomics.

If the past ten years of the human genome project is any guide,
we will not have to wait long for new enabling technologies to
appear. An approach may be in hand soon (if it is not already)
to confront hypotheses with data. Perhaps we will get closer to
a real comprehension of the alien abduction mystery.

Some, like Lloyd Pye, are not content to wait. Despite the
frustrations, he has worked creatively to obtain the most
definitive data possible on the Starchild. It would have been
far easier to play the role of an outsider shunned by mainstream
science and hit the lecture circuit until he retired. Instead,
he chose to get the hard data and answer the question to the
best of his ability. In the end, that data will tell all about
the Starchild, whether it is what some wish for or not. No
matter the outcome, Lloyd Pye has revealed himself to be a man
of integrity, determination, and sheer courage. I look forward
to seeing what he discovers.

Best wishes,
