Sorry Jason, but once you get into the territory of researchers
using hypnosis help abductees to 'realize what's true' then you
are skating on the thinnest of ice. By definition 'good
subjects' self-select on the basis of suggestibility - and that
in itself should be enough of a warning.

As medical science progresses (increased sophistication in our
ability to switch certain neural circuits on and off)
narcoanalysis will start to look like a much better bet. Of
course, the accompanying strictures over the qualification of
researchers to employ such methods without proper medical
credentials will spoil the fun for curious amateurs of every
stripe. No bad thing, in my view.
