Jerry, I think I understand the point you're making but I don't understand the distinction between a witness reporting fairies on the lawn and someone reporting an alien in a lime orchard. If they are both telling the truth about their experience and not hallucinating,then they would seem to me to be having an experience and since it's an unusual experience, it would seem to be an anomaly. A friend of mine had a stroke while watching TV. He said that the only thing he remembered was all his old friends suddenly walking through the front door and sitting down next to him. He then remembered waking up in the hospital. He told me later: "Ed, you can't believe how real my old friends seemed. Just as real as you and me sitting here." Where does that fit into your theory? My research indicates that abductions are either real events like the Hills, or Hixson and Parker, or outright lies. If two witnesses report the same experience, then there's a good chance it's true. But in your experience anomaly, facts can be both true and false at the same time. In the example above, my friend seemed to experience a real event. His stroke gave us an explanation, but to him it was a real event. Is this similar to what you're suggesting only without the stroke? I'm not trying to be confrontational, but I'm having trouble understanding your distinctions. Also, why do you have trouble believing KT's experience? Do you know who she is? Did you bother reading the entire article? Could you provide an example of what you consider an "experience anomaly"? I was not able to find the specific article you cited at the Fortean site. Could you provide a link although I think I understand your theory. It just doesn't make any sense and I don't think it makes sense to anyone else on the List. Maybe you're on to something. It certainly sounds deep and inscrutable, but lacks meaning and most of all, from a scientific standpoint, predictability. Ed Listen to 'Strange Days...
