Today, I guess lie detectors are extremely sophisticated in the USA. You could not make a hypnotic regression for the whole population! There should be serious and qualified doctors. I prefer the work of John Mack, Bud Hopkins and David Jacob on the abductions. It is, perhaps, the intrusion into the private lives of Americans, generating a mental self-defense. Visions of coercive torture by aliens seem abnormal. I feel that it is desired to design genetic slaves. There is such distrust around the world ...
In fact, it is the power of money that ends up discrediting sensitive subjects such as ufo's, abductions, and testimonies of close encounters. Seriously, what is the ideal witness? What you said about Travis Walton is interesting and smart. Although G Adamski was false picture of a flying saucer with pieces of vacuum and bottle nipples (!!!), some people continue to believe her story. In the 70s, the Venusian Venusian enticing and the androgynous faces were dreaming beatniks! There was a need to break free, in the American society.
But there is also the manipulation and mental poisoning, neuro-marketing, mass psychology, the induced false memories, etc.I'm staying with my close encounter, without trying to develop a business. I've seen physically 8 different kinds of aliens. I do not drink, do not do drugs, and I do not have psychological problems. This seems normal to encounter beings from other worlds. I tried to avoid some, but they hide in deep ecology and have invisibility cloaks very sophisticated. They mimicry with trees and plants.
The site BluePlanetProject Gil Carlson is, perhaps, interesting for people who want to dream, but ... we can exploit the credulity, because people lack reasoning and logical sense. I encourage you to continue your research. I try to practice the "Occam's razor", but it is difficult. But I try anyway.
