Lecture: Understanding the Abduction Phenomenon
The abduction phenomenon is a program with a distinct, unified, goal. The program is carried out by specific aliens who have created a workforce to help them achieve that goal. Everyone in the abduction workforce, including unwilling abductees, have functions to perform for the ultimate success of the program. Using new information, this talk will redefine abductions, coalesce disparate elements of it, and logically progress to a deeper understanding of how and why aliens are now living among us.
