Dr. Lillenfeld, I thought, explained what is known about how, so far, about how the subconscious works. I agreed with most of his conclusions as I discovered for myself how easily the subconscious obeyed the conscious mind's command. I just shared with Jim Moseley, of Saucer Smear, how I stopped the so-called abduction experience in my own life. It was after I figured out the triggers in my environment and simply put up a "thought wall" to stop it. I couldn't believe how simple it was to stop it. Now, I am reading encounter accounts and trying to create a very new way to evaluate them. I have noticed many serious researchers into the phenomena go to the edge but pull back just before leaping into an alternative approach. I think it is easier for me to break through as I have had some of those highly strange events and remember what it felt like. I can't imagine someone who has never had highly strange events in their life trying to come to some conclusion. As I have stated before, approaching this phenomena takes, at least, a background reading in many different fields of human biology, neurology, sociology and theology. KK Listen to 'Strange Days...
