Hello Steve:

I agree that is the case in a majority of circumstances. Not
all, but a majority. Whether the topic at hand is alleged alien
abduction or some other paranormal subject matter, many self-
described witnesses indeed prefer the thrill of a chronic
mystery to the closure and perceived disappointment of
solutions.

Members of the UFO community are notorious for claiming they
seek truth while turning their collective heads from it when
actually presented. You get no debate here, Mr. Kaeser, that a
big part of the problem in ufology is perpetuating nebulous
mysteries, while a big part of the solution is competently
identifying and accepting accurate information.

In and of itself, that seems to be one of the many interesting
dynamics of the Ambient Monitoring Project (AMP). In his book
Hair of the Alien, researcher/author Bill Chalker quoted AMP
project director Tom Deuley (pp 200-201):

"Finding subjects was our biggest problem. We at first wanted
60 - in the end we only found 13... There is something very
wrong here. With an estimated 3 million or more claimed
abductees in the US we could not find 15. Our requirements
were high, but not that high. Nearly any medical study can find
1%; we could not find 1/1000%. This may say more than (the
results of) our study."

For one thing, Mr. Deuley might choose to consider that if the
results he refers to are never released, it would indeed be
quite difficult for any of the rest of us to comment. Also, I
highly dispute the accuracy of the supposed surveys that
resulted in estimations of millions of alen abductees in the
U.S., but I suppose that is a whole 'nother subject for another
time.

If you are referring to no "WOW" event was reported during the
data-gathering phases of the project, I disagree. As previously
cited, the following journal entry was apparently submitted (see
page 13):

http://www.amstat.org/chapters/austin/Meetings/Powell.pdf

Also, I have located an AMP volunteer who informs me they indeed
reported what would be described as a dramatic event, consisting
of entities, while a monitoring box was located in their home.
This individual further informs me they have made repeated
unsuccessful attempts through MUFON to receive information about
the results of their involvement in the project. At this point,
the disappointed volunteer would very much like to locate other
volunteers and discuss their experiences related to the project.
Previous AMP volunteers are encouraged to contact me in order to
interact with the individual and I will explain further in
another email with a different title.

There are many potentially useful and interesting items that
could come out of a review of the AMP data. One possibility is
that no changes were recorded in the ambient environment during
reported abductions. Personally, I would be just as interested
in knowing this was the case as I would be in discovering if
there were, in fact, anomalous changes in electromagnetic
frequencies or similar such activity during reported abductions.
One way or the other, I think the data should be made available
for public review even if those who hold the data choose to
invest no more funding in its analysis or dissemination.

Would you be willing to assist me with this process? I would be
very grateful for any help you would offer, including both
contacting UFORC and providing me information about specifically
who I should contact. My past efforts have received minimal
results, so I would very much appreciate any help you or anyone
else could provide.


Regards,

Jack Brewer
