From Alien Abductions Via MKUltra to an Implanted Cyber-Situation
by Dr Helmut Lammer

Dr. Helmut Lammer is an atmospheric scientist who works on various space projects. Dr. Lammer researches during his free time unexplained phenomena, exotic military weapons and mind control. He has written five books and several articles in magazines like Nexus, The Truth Seeker, UFO Journal, MUFON Journal, etc. and published with his wife Marion the book, MILABS: Military Mind Control and Alien Abduction (IllumiNet Press).

Alien abductions are a very strange and complex phenomenon. For sceptics, most journalists, and the public it is hard to believe that abductions by non human beings have their basis in physical reality. Reports of alien beings entering bedrooms through walls and levitating abductees through closed windows into a waiting UFO are hard for the open-minded researcher to believe, too.

Recently some alien abductees have said that they have been kidnapped by military/intelligence personnel and taken to hospitals and/or military ground/underground research facilities, where they were examined, interrogated and sometimes implanted with tiny devices. Such experiences are called MILABS-covert military abductions of alleged alien abductees. Not many of the popular books on the subject of alien abductions mention these experiences. In fact it seems that well known alien abduction researchers like Budd Hopkins, Prof. David Jacobs and Prof. John Mack ignore such cases, although they know about them.

Especially disconcerting are the facts that abductees recalled seeing military intelligence personnel together with alien beings working side by side in secret military ground or underground research facilities. The presence of human military and/or civilian personnel inhabiting the same physical reality as the alleged alien beings exceeds the mindsets of the sceptics and the open-minded researchers by several orders of magnitude.

In my new book MILABS: Military Mind Control and Alien Abduction, which is co-authored by my wife, we reviewed hypnosis transcripts of MILAB abductees and compare their recovered memories with the experiences of survivors of now known declassified government sponsored mind – or behaviour – control experiments. We found a strong indication that covert ‘human’ military personnel are indeed involved in the alien abduction phenomena. In coming to such a conclusion we researched in our book the following points.

In this article I will address the implant situation, since it is important to offer an overview of terrestrial implant research, technology and its applications for covert operations like MILABS. Implanted electrodes were being used on unwitting persons as early as fifty years ago.

Implant technology was developed after World War II. Both superpowers, the U.S. and the Soviet Union researched intra-cerebral mind-control, electronic stimulation of the brain (ESB), biological radio communication technology called telemetry. An electromagnetic wave can broadcast to a receiver/transmitter located under the skull or in the brain. This signal then records the brain activity and relays it to a computer for analysis, by which all aspects of the subjects life can be monitored. Mrs. Janine Jones from New Zealand is a very early implanted mind control victim. Mrs Jones parents were Norma and Reginald Paul Philips, the latter a prominent politician and Chief Justice of Western Samoa. She was adopted after an implant surgery in 1949. Her natural and adopted parents had backgrounds in the military. Upon her birth at LoverHutt Hospital, she was taken straight into an operating room where she was put on a life-support system, and illegal psychosurgery was performed via stereotaxic methods of drilling into her skull. The incisions left scars that remain to date.

Mrs. Jones is in the possession of x-rays which show implants in the cavities near the cochlea’s of both ears and one in the brain above the nose. Mrs. Jones has very good evidence to back her case, since Dr. Richard Thompson from England has analysed her x-rays and given a statement as follows:

‘Lateral projection shows a foreign object implanted in the frontal lobe directly adjacent to the nasal passages. This object is most probably a radio transmitter... interference in blood circulation is spreading over large areas of the brain. Concentrated in the frontal lobes and in particular around the foreign object. It is highly likely that this blood-flow impairment is the result of the radio-frequency emanating from the transmitter. This, in turn, causes a depletion in oxygen levels and reduced nutrient supply to these areas of the brain, where changes in neurological activity are inevitable.’

Mrs. Jones wrote to me recently:

‘Currently it is fair to assume that the two sets of electrodes inserted into my skull are firmly enmeshed with bone, muscle, nerves, blood and chemicals inside my brain. I am, in effect, a live radio circuit. The surface around my ears to the base of my skull emits gas which discharges in audible ‘plops’ onto nearby objects like wood, plastic, metal and worst of all my bedtime pillow at night. When I am directly in the path of oncoming microwaves, my head discharges like a volley, pouring into the surrounding environment.’

Swedish researchers also have evidence in x-rays of operations that took place at Karolinska Hospital in 1946 and Sachska Children Hospital in 1948, both facilities located in Stockholm. The mother of one such victim claimed that she heard her son Bengt’s screams from the lab-room during an unscheduled visit. As she rushed in she saw a surgical team and nurses, who ushered her out, although she witnessed how they were driving a large amount of electrodes through the base of her son’s still soft skull. Bengt has suffered for over 48 years from these medical experiments, he has also spent several years of his life in a psychiatric unit.

During the late 1950s and early 1960s neuro-scientist Dr. Jose Delgado invented the stimoceiver, an electrode capable of receiving and transmitting electronic signals via FM radio waves. Such a device, implanted in the brain via the sinus cavities, will act as a powerful stimulant when activated by FM radio wave. One can speculate that the stimoceiver has since been modified to receive stimulation from microwave pulses and is capable of wielding a great degree of control over the implanted victim’s response mechanisms.

One of the best documented cases of implantation of unknown electronic devices is the case of Robert Naeslund. The first doctor to support his struggle to show what he has been used for, Prof. Peter Lindstrom at University of California wrote in a letter to him:

‘In response to your most recent letter regarding the roentgen films I can only confirm that some foreign objects, most likely brain transmitters have been implanted at the base of your frontal brain and in the skull... I fully agree with Lincoln Lawrence who in his book “Were We Controlled?” on page 27 wrote: “There are two particularly dreadful procedures which have been developed . Those working and playing with them secretly call them ‘R.H.I.C. and E.D.O.M.' – Radio-Hypnotic Intracerebral Control and Dissolution of Memory.’’

Robert Naeslund describes in a report which is available from Gruppen, a Swedish organisation opposing mind control experiments:

‘It was on my first occasion with the police, the 10 March 1972, that I was put to sleep without my consent and when I awoke a few hours later is was to a whole new circumstances. The first thing I was aware of was a deeply disturbing radio signal in my head. As one can see from x-ray pictures, this transmitter had been inserted through my left nostril. Dr. Lindstrom’s reference in his second letter to the process as ‘electronic dissolution of the memory’ is a fitting description of what was an obvious changement of my memory functions because of the intensive radiation.’

What is clear is that the exploitation of human beings in secret experiments by mind-control had given rise to a new mentality amongst these involved. British implant victim N’Tumba described similar effects:

‘… Concerning the brain implant in my head, it has been performing without my knowledge or consent...What’s very outrageous is that I am sharing all my vision, thought images, hearing...etc. with people around me as the security services are engaging in a large scale propaganda drive to smear my character, background, behavior, emotions and motives...I have no privacy at all...I am not a spy, I am not a criminal, I am not a terrorist. Being an innocent victim of MI5...My persecution started in June 1988…’

Mr. N’Tumba has x-rays in his possession that were reviewed by medical experts in Stockholm, Sweden. The doctors confirmed that a tiny transmitter has been implanted in his left nostril. Furthermore, one can see that electrodes placed in the occipital lobe are blocking the blood flow causing oxygen depletion. This is seen as well in his frontal brain just above the implanted transmitter. Moreover, Mr. N’Tumba has obviously been anaesthetised without his knowledge, or this implantation could not have been performed. See his letter to his M.P. below.


Mr K N’Tumba
20 August 1992


Dear Mr N’Tumba

Following your most recent visit to see me, I have written to the Prime Minister on your behalf.

As you will know, there is very little accountability of security services to the House of Commons and Members of Parliament have almost no power in relation to the activities of MI5.

As soon as I receive a response from the Prime Minister, I will be in touch with you again.


Yours sincerely

John Austin-Walker MP


Figure 3: Letter from British implant mind control victim Mr. N’Tumba to John Austin-Walker MP, concerning his situation. Interestingly Mr. Walker Writes that the members of the Parliament have almost no power in relation to the activities of the secret service MI5 (Gruppen).

There are CIA documents which were released via the Freedom of Information Act in the USA, which document that the American spy agency researched implants during its MKULTRA mind control projects 40 years ago. (see below).


It is proposed to conduct investigations as directed by the sponsor of the action of localized neurological and physiological stimulants on the balance mechanisms in mammals and bird. The sponsor will have full control of the species of animals to be utilzed together with methods and procedures to be followed in the researches.

Special investigations and evaluations will be conducted toward the application of selected elements of these to man.

Pilot experiments will be performed under field conditions to permit critical evaluation of methods and procedures. The parameters of effectiveness and the action of potential interfering phenomena will be determined.

The following budget is required to carry out the program outlined above for one year.


Figure 1. Declassified research proposal, where one can see that the CIA tried to expand their research on humans via field conditions. Interestingly the first alleged alien abduction cases were reported during these times (FOIA/ACHES-MC).

A declassified CIA MKULTRA Subproject No. 94 document, dated November 22, 1961 , shows that this subproject dealt with miniaturised stimulating electrode brain implants. After having succeeded in remote conditioning and animal control, there was interest in expanding this area of research to human subjects, (see below).

22 November 1961


SUBJECT: Project MKULTRA, Subproject No.94

The purpose of this subproject is to provide a continuation of activities in selected species of animals. Miniaturized stimulating electrode implants in specific brain center areas will be utilized.

Initial biological work on techniques and brain locations essential to providing conditioning and control of animals has been completed. The feasibility of remote control of activities in several species of animals has been demonstrated. The present investigations are directed toward improvement of techniques and will provide a precise mapping of the useful brain centres in selected species. The ultimate objective of this research is to provide an understanding of the mechanisms involved in the directional control of animals and to provide a system suitable for (deleted word) application.


Figure2: Declassified CIA/MKULTRA Subproject No. 94 mind-control document from November 22, 1961. We know that the American spy agency researched miniaturized stimulating electrode implants since the early 1960s. They write that remote control in several species of animals has been demonstrated (FOIA/ACHES-MC).

Interestingly there exists a research proposal for the same subproject where the CIA proposed secret field studies on humans in the 1960’s! This is the time where the first alien abduction cases like Betty and Barney Hill came into the implant/mind-control field studies.

We show in our MILABS book that it is easy to create alien abduction scenarios with the help of hallucinogenic drugs and hypnosis as a cover for hiding secret mind control experiments. We present a declassified CIA MKULTRA document which shows the use of psychochemicals to control or discredit an individual. Interestingly, they discuss studies that are based on a strictly ‘need to know’ basis in the field.

Alleged alien abductees have been reported since the 1960s. How strange that non-human beings implanted them by placing small objects up their nose through the nasal passage and sinus cavity. An important fact is that transnasal implantation is in common use in neurosurgery! One can therefore speculate if the alleged alien beings doing such implant procedures in reality are agents from black ops units?

A secret agency, interested in tracking and monitoring physiologic information about a person who is unwittingly used for covert tests or experiments with directed energy weapons could also use Bio-medical telemetry. This is defined as a special area of biomedical instrumentation that permits transmission of physiologic informationfrom an often inaccessible location to a remote monitoring site. The transmitting unit can be implanted within the subject’s body. Animals have been monitored with bio-telemetry for about thirty years. By using telemetric systems as a method of monitoring alien abductees, the military could obtain data, such as information on respiration, muscular tension and the presence of adrenaline in the bloodstream.

Recently, the Austrian TV program ORF2 reported in the scientific magazine Modern Times that medical researchers sponsored by the German government developed a brain-implant for monitoring people for heart attack prevention or other medical purposes. The bio-telemetric brain implant has the size of a rice grain (0.8x2mm). It was reported that this 21 million dollar ‘civilian’ research project was given a top priority by the German science ministry. The whole report was propaganda for the ‘medical’ use of brain-implants.

Medical doctors were quoted who had envisioned that in the near future ‘everybody’ would be implanted with such a device. They claimed that three hundred thousand people per year suffering from heart attacks in Germany alone could be protected with this biotelemetic monitoring technique. Sadly, nobody reported the negative aspects of this technology. If the visions of some doctors and governments come true, that everybody will be implanted and monitored with such devices, then George Orwell’s 1984 would look old fashioned.

Cognitive manifestations and activity such as thoughts and visual impressions or emotions, and behaviour and psychological reactions could continually be registered, making it possible for secret military/intelligence agencies, medical scientists and the government to observe an implanted individual in a deeper and more comprehensive way than the person himself could.

Through analysis and manipulation by computer, it is even possible for changes in an individual’s physical and mental status to be effected. The potential of intracerebral remote control is limited only by the imagination of the researcher.

We show in our book MILABS that there is also a great military interest in implants today. A recent paper published for the Air Force, looking ahead to technological needs in the year 2025, has the title ‘Information Operations: A New War-Fighting Capability’. In this paper, the authors also write about a brain-implanted cyber situation. They propose implanted microscopic brain chips to perform two functions. First, the bio-chip connects the implanted individual to a constellation of integrated or smart satellites (IIC) in low earth orbit, creating an interface between the implanted person and the information resources. The implant relays the processed information from the IIC to the user. Second, the biochip creates a computer-generated mental visualisation based upon the user’s request. The visualisation encompasses the individual and allows the user to place himself into a selected ‘battlespace’. In addition, a wide range of lethal or nonlethal weapons would be linked to the IIC, allowing special authorised implanted users (super-cyber-soldiers) to directly employ these weapons.

This means that a soldier would be capable of viewing the normal world plus an overlay of information identifying and describing specific objects in his field of view. He would now be able to evaluate the threat those targets represented and order a variety of weapons systems to engage and destroy the targets from a distance.

The military study concludes, that cyber-soldiers should converse with computers. It is also interesting that the brain implants, used for the proposed cyber-situation should disintegrate if the implanted soldier is captured or killed by the enemy, the chip disintegrates and cannot be extracted by the enemy for reverse engineering.

Further, when faced with events of espionage and defections of friendly users to the enemy side, the IIC satellites would have the capability to deactivate and disintegrate the offender’s implanted chips. Interestingly, disintegrated implants were sometimes reported after their removal by persons who claimed that they were abducted by aliens.

One can see from such military studies that secret research in human-brain-machine and virtual-reality implant research is already well underway. Some of the references in this paper refer to military research institutes and are classified for the public. Since the authors write that implanting devices in human beings raises ethical and public relation issues today, everybody who is in the possession of the IIC/brain implant technology would be a ‘Big Brother’ who could watch over the whole globe. We should ask who the guinea pigs are in these futuristic research projects?

Interestingly, they suggest that concerns about implanting things in the human organism may be founded on today’s thinking; in 2025 the notion may not be as alarming. It seems that we are moving to a ‘monitored’ and ‘implanted’ society!

The MKULTRA / Reptoid Connection

by Dr. Helmut Lammer

In the conspiracy literature like David Icke’s new book the Biggest Secret, there is currently a great debate about the claims of various mind control victims, that they experienced or witnessed humans who transformed into reptoid creatures. In our book MILABS: Military Mind Control and Alien Abduction co-authored by my wife Marion, we investigated alleged alien abduction cases where abductees also reported or experienced unwitting human military involvement, so called MILAB-abductions. We also came across cases where the abductees believed that they witnessed reptoid beings during military kidnappings. We found that such cases may represent in reality drug induced screen memories where the mind controllers hide covert experiments, etc.

Michelle (pseudonym) had her first conscious memory of a typical alien abduction experience with non-human beings at the age of eight. She remembers classic alien abduction experiences with three to four-foot-tall ‘Grey’ beings with large heads and almond-shaped eyes. Her following experiences, however, have nothing to do with alien abductions. Since 1995, Michelle has had traumatic flashbacks, reality-like dreams and some consciously remembered MILAB events. She began to remember a face of a reptilian creature, images of travelling in a military Jeep and soldiers with black berets. Interestingly she also recalls being submerged in some type of fluid, heavier than water. This flashback continued to hound her but she couldn't remember more details.

After these flashbacks Michelle found out that she had a missing time experience in 1970 near Montauk, New York. During this time she visited her aunt and her uncle's campsite at Ditch Plains in Montauk. Her uncle remembered that she was missing for about three hours. Her recollection of the early part of that day was quite clear but the later part had been vague and blurry.

Michelle decided to do hypnosis regression concerning the missing time experience. Her memory gaps were investigated by Dr. Kouguell a professional Ph.D. hypnotherapist and MUFON consultant, with the use of regressive hypnosis.

A hypnosis session done during September, 1995 revealed that Michelle and a boyfriend had a military kidnapping experience near the campsite at Ditch Plains. She walked with her friend toward the east into the dunes, where they lay down. Suddenly they heard a loud buzzing sound like a car coming near them. She recalled under hypnosis the following story:

‘…We should run away! I try to yell to my friend that we should get out of there. But I can't talk...I can't move! I'm scared...I want my mother...A man wearing a soldier's uniform is looking down at me, standing on my left. On the right is another soldier… Their leader is called Terry and is very tanned, with dark hair and dark glasses…’

The soldiers carried both of them to the military Jeep and travelled north through the dunes.

‘…We are in the back seat of a Jeep…There's a big hill up ahead. This is so weird! The hill is moving…just part of it. It looks like a door in the hill.

It moves forward and then to my right. We drive in. There is another Jeep parked on my left. Two other men with the same uniform and black beret are inside...’

The soldiers drove both to a now closed underground complex near Montauk. After they were separated, Michelle was escorted inside the underground research facility where she had several frightening experiences.

‘…This looks like a garage or something. We go through a door. It's bright in this hallway. We turn right. My friend is just ahead of me. At the next hallway, he keeps going straight with two guys, but we turn to the right and walk a few feet to an elevator door. He put a credit card-like thing in a slot next to the door. The slot is vertical and there are red and green lights above. The door opens…we go inside…but there are no buttons to push. We are going down…the door opens and it smells funny…like a basement with a cesspool overflow problem…’

After this detailed description of going underground, an unbelievable experience occurs. As we noted in the introduction, the presence of human military personnel inhabiting the same physical reality as non-human beings is unbelievable for skeptics and could easily be used to ridicule the whole MILAB scenario. Michelle described being escorted by military personnel into a dark office-like room where she had a traumatic encounter with a non-human being:

‘…There is almost no furniture in it. There's something that looks like a padded table. They help me on it and lay me down. Now I am really cold…They leave the room. I can't seem to move anything but my eyes. Why am I here? I don't like this. Over to my left something moves. It's coming closer…I can see it better…Oh God! It's a monster!…’

At this point Michelle got so agitated that she almost jumped from the recliner in Dr. Kouguell's office. She got very emotional and couldn't stop shaking and crying. After Dr. Kouguell calmed her down she remembered the following:

‘…What I see is a creature about 6-7 foot tall. His ears are large and pointed at the top. His eyes are bright yellow-gold and seem to glow. He has pointy teeth and a large wrinkle on his forehead and he has a tail!…’

After the description of the reptoid-like being she remembered how she was raped by this creature. We don't know what this traumatic experience means. We don't think, however, that the military worked with this reptoid creature. It could be possible that Michelle was drugged with an hallucinogen, raped by a human and projected the reptoid as a kind of screen memory, although she described the skin and other features of the creature quite realistically.

Fig. 1: The reptoid being described by Michelle. It is possible that she was drugged with a hallucinogenic drug and experienced a so-called Polygenetic Experience (mental transformations of the drug user or nearby humans into reptiles or other animals), which were common reports during LSD experiments in the sixties (© Luis Vazquez/Michelle).

Long-time LSD researcher Dr. Stanislav Grof reported transpersonal experiences in LSD sessions in his book Realms of the Human Unconscious: Drug Induced Experiences of LSD Subjects. One should note that Dr. Grof worked with large amounts of LSD during the sixties. Therefore, he probably got the drugs from the CIA or from a front organization that was interested in LSD research during this time.

TSS has developed, and has under continuing study, a number of procedures for influencing and predicting human behavior by chemical and psychological means. These techniques have both defensive applications (such as defense against interrogation and effects of isolation) and offensive applications (use of psychochemicals to control or discredit an individual). They also may be useful in agent evaluation and in other ways.

b. Limitations
Much of this work involves pioneering in little-understood aspects of psychology. Testing of certain techniques in humans is difficult and, in some cases, impossible.

c. Objectives
Continue study in the field and make the findings available on a strictly-controlled, need-to-know basis.

Fig. 2: Declassified CIA/MKULTRA document showing the use of psychochemicals to control or discredit an individual. Interestingly, they discuss studies that are based on a strictly controlled, need-to-know basis in the field (ACHES-MC).

He wrote that the strange alien worlds that LSD subjects discover and explore seem to have a reality of their own, although not in the range of our cosmos; they appear to exist in other dimensions or in universes coexistent with ours. The drugged individual can encounter ‘entities’ who have bizarre physical forms.

Some LSD subjects had so-called ‘poly genetic experiences.’ In this type of experience the drug user has a quite realistic identification with animals on various levels of polygenetic development. At one point a female of Dr. Grof's LSD subjects had a sense of complete identification with a female of a species of large reptiles.

While experiencing this in the session, she opened her eyes and looked at the therapist, who seemed transformed into a reptile, too. She was absolutely fascinated by scale-like facets that she visualized on the side of the head of the therapist.

Since many people have phobias about reptiles or snakes it would be logical that they would experience such beings if they were on a gruelling drug trip. From Dr. Grof's LSD experiments it should be clear that Michelle's reptoid/rape experience could have been drug induced, where she possibly saw a human transformed into a reptoid, like some of Dr. Grof's LSD test subjects.

After the rape, Michelle recalled that the creature went back to the dark side of the room. After a short time two soldiers came in the room, dressed her and escorted her to an examination room with machines, stainless steel equipment and a table covered in white. Michelle was placed on the table and strapped down. After a few minutes, which for her seemed like hours (also a symptom reported by users of hallucinogenic drugs), a group of five to six people, including one female, came into the room. All of them wore medical clothes consisting of white gowns, and surgical masks covered their faces. We describe her encounter in more detail in our book. After this examination Michelle was forced into an isolation tank where she began to hallucinate.

Declassified CIA documents show that the intelligence agencies had great interest in isolation research and used hallucinogenic drugs for cover stories to ridicule or discredit individuals during covert operations. In one declassified MKULTRA document there is mention of documents in the ARTICHOKE files that show their interest in financing experiments and research in chemicals having psychogenic effects. Other documents note that they continue study in the field, and make the findings available on a strictly controlled need-to-know basis.

Q: Have any professional papers or documents been written on this subject?
A: Some few have been written but all pertinent material is apparently classified and kept in (deleted) laboratory in (deleted) and can’t be obtained by unauthorized sources.

Q: Have you given any thought as to how the techniques could be brought to bear on unwilling or unwitting subjects?
A: That, of course, is the important question. It is possible to figure some cover story to place a subject in an isolation chamber or possibly a “knock-out” chemical could be placed in the subject’s food or drink and he could then be placed in isolation. It must be remembered you cannot use a straight-jacket or any type of physically confining device on a subject in isolation. This would defeat the technique. Possibly, as you suggested, hypnosis might be a means to induce a subject into the isolation chamber.

Q: Briefly describe how total isolation is achieved.
A: Total isolation is, in very general terms, the removal of all sensory impulses from an individual by blocking physically from without his sensory apparatus, hence, the following are required:

1) Completely dark area.
2) No sound (good soundproofing).
3) Confinement of subjects movements—a fairly small padded box or cylinder.
4) Communication both ways through carefully controlled channels.
5) Blotting out sense of feel by padding all around him as in 3) above or by placing heavy gloves on subject’s hands.

Special Comments

13. Documents held in Artichoke files very clearly reflect that the (deleted) is intensely interested in and is financing experimentation and research in chemicals having psycho-genic effects. We also know that the (deleted) either financed or in some way controlled (deleted) work in isolation – certainly papers on this work are reported as classified and available. ‘It is known that (continued next page)




Fig. 3: A declassified CIA/MKULTRA mind control document showing that CIA-scientists discussed secret isolation tank research on unwilling or unwitting victims. They suggest that one can use knock-out chemicals or hallucinogens with psycho-genic effects and hypnosis. Hallucinogens with psycho-genic effects can produce mental animal/reptoid-transformations by humans (ACHES-MC).

We believe that Michelle's experiences show that this was true and that there is evidence that she is a victim of such secret deprivation tank experiments. If the abductee or a mind control victim underwent some kind of hypnoprogramming by military psychiatrists during the experience it should have been possible to create imaginary alien encounters.

Over the past decade, a research project was conducted at an Anaheim, California hospital by Dr. Alvin Lawson and physician W. C. McCall. Their research has led to a scientifically testable hypothesis in regard at least to some alien abduction experiences – the so called ‘Birth Memories Hypothesis.’ The birth memory hypothesis asserts that some alien abduction experiences are a spontaneous involuntary fantasized sequence of images and events unconsciously based on the witness’ own prenatal or birth memories. Interestingly, this was given little credence in the alien abduction research community and was mostly ridiculed by prominent ET-proponents.

In an attempt to objectively evaluate alien abductee claims, they induced imaginary abduction experiences in sixteen volunteers who had demonstrated no significant knowledge of UFOs. Although Dr. Lawson and Dr. McCall expected major dissimilarities between the imaginary recovered stories of the sixteen test subjects, an averaged comparison of data from four imaginary and four real abduction cases showed no substantive differences. Also, numerous patterns of images and events echoing well-established details from real alien abduction encounters emerged from the imaginary sessions.

All of the imaginary subjects described some images and incidents identical with or similar to those in published and unpublished alien abductions. These details ranged from ‘placental disc-like crafts’ hovering overhead, small ‘fetal humanoids,’ ‘womb-like chambers’ to uncommon ‘tunnel of light,’ ‘floating,’ and ‘bonding with an alien’ images, to rare details of high strangeness such as projecting or retracting light beams’ with ‘cut-off’ ends and ‘passing through solid walls’.

Dr. Lawson published the complete study including statistics, graphs, tables and hypnosis transcripts of four imaginary abductees on his internet site. All four imaginary abductees entered a UFO by passing through its solid bottom, and none recalled a doorway. They found that although the imagery and events in alien abduction reports resemble those in several psychological processes, they are especially similar to revivified birth memory narratives such as those conducted with hallucinogenic drugs by before mentioned LSD researcher Dr. Stanislav Grof.

Dr. Lawson believes that the content of some abduction experiences is largely inherent in the mind's store of fantasies and ‘prenatal memories’, and it does not originate in movies, TV, or reading alien abduction books. Such spontaneously remembered birth memories could indeed be responsible for many alien abduction experiences, although I believe his hypothesis can't explain ‘all’ alien abduction experiences such as multiple abductions or abductions which were allegedly witnessed by other people.

Dr. Lawson's imaginary abductees reported also ‘tube’ and ‘tunnel’ scenarios. He claims that such scenarios have analogies to the vaginal tunnel. Dr. Lawson believes that the boarding of a UFO is often similar to birth memories. The abductee seems to be ‘reborn’ inside the craft, in one part of a complex series of prenatal events. One of his imaginary abductees described such an event:

‘A long tube came out of the UFO, and it was about two feet above me…And this long cylinder-like tube came down. It was grey and...was like all colored lights inside of it…I seem to be floating for a second, and then I was inside…’

Real alien abductees have experiences that are often nearly identical. Therefore, a traumatic birth memory could contain similar events to real alien abductions. Such events include loss of control, bright lights, lifted by a tunnel of light (taken aboard through a tube or tunnel), image constants (geometric, battlements, starbursts...), birth imagery/events, a big room (relief after the pressure of vaginal birth), humming womb sounds, extreme tastes and odors (common in Dr. Grof's drug induced revivified birth memories), physical and/or moral examination, umbilical pain, breathing problems, head and body pressure, paralysis (body, legs or sleep paralysis), cervical doorways, womblike rooms, body size change, life review, messages or bonding with an alien being, birth lab/room events, apocalyptic events (as occurred in Dr. Grof's drug induced revivified vaginal birth memories), amnesia/time loss…

Dr. Grof's subjects often described big rooms and huge high-domed circular halls after being injected with a psychoactive stimulant. The source of imaginary abduction experiences, Dr. Lawson maintains, is the collective emotional and sometimes traumatic memories of prenatal experiences. The experience begins in the womb, then proceeds to the birth-struggle, which ends with a bright new realm where there are other beings. In the new realm (the physical world outside the womb-the birth lab) are physical developmental and moral tests. Dr. Lawson beliefs that good-womb and bad-womb memories remain along with a variety of prenatal experiences that please or haunt the minds of some ordinary people.

Dr. Grof describes six types of non-human beings in his revivified birth memory study (human, fetal, animal, robot, exotic creature, apparitional). These types come close to reported alien beings. The alien beings reported in womb-like UFOs are like a ‘fetus’ in its maternal womb-resembling ‘Grey’-like beings. This is the reason why people without knowledge of reported alien entities report similar beings to ‘real’ abductees.

One test subject of Dr. Lawson's study saw two entity types on board the imaginary UFO. One being resembled a human with white clothes, while the second type of beings were reptiles, which are also common in ‘real’ alien abduction experiences. Concerning the question of how many beings are in the room the imaginary abductee answered:

‘…There are two behind me…It seems that he should look nice like the other one but he doesn't. He sort of has a scaly-like skin, and I don't like him very much…I am not very comfortable…when I start thinking that way, I look back at the bearded one, and I feel OK again…He must be the leader. The other…the other two…scaly ones…they don't…they just seem to be sort of non-existent or guard-type things or something…’

Interestingly, this imaginary abductee also reported reptoid non-human beings on board the imaginary UFO. He was frightened like most ‘real’ alien abductees or Michelle as she encountered the reptoid.

One of Dr. Grof's LSD test subjects was medicated after a session with Niamid, an antidepressant drug from the group of monoaminooxidase inhibitors. The researchers found that long premedication with Niamid enormously increased the resistance to LSD and made the person almost immune to its effects. Dr. Grof published a short paper about the effects of Niamid, which he considered theoretically interesting but marginal to his research efforts.

He was surprised that the publication aroused an unexpected response. Although the article was published in an obscure journal, within several weeks he received hundreds of requests for reprints from military research centers all over the world. This made Dr. Grof realize that the use of drugs like LSD was being seriously considered for other purposes than the intensification and acceleration of psychotherapy. Therefore, interested military/intelligence psychologists should be aware of the reported parallels between drug-inducted hallucinations and alien abduction experiences since the 1960s!

We think that one can see from Dr. Lawson's and Dr. McCall's imaginary alien abductee study that it would be easy for psychiatrists or psychologists who work for secret military/intelligence agencies to create alien abduction scenarios that appear similar to ‘real’ abduction encounters. Drug-induced hallucinations and related psychological processes have long been studied by researchers into hallucinogenic imagery. Most researchers in LSD and related drugs worked for military/intelligence mind-control projects like CHATTER, BLUEBIRD, ARTICHOKE, MKULTRA and MKSEARCH. During those days government researchers also secretly reviewed drug research done by independent psychologists. Significantly, Dr. Stanislav Grof reported that on several occasions during the sessions, LSD subjects had reported contacts or encounters with UFOs and other types of extraterrestrial space ships.

Dr. Lawson's imaginary alien abductee study and the connection to Dr. Grof's drug inducted revivified birth memories and LSD-experiments should provide an understanding of how easy it is to create imaginary alien abduction experiences on people who have had no ‘real’ alien/UFO experience, even if the hypnotherapist doesn't ask leading questions. These results are very important for MILAB cases and cases where alleged alien abductees claim that they have seen human military personnel and non-human beings working side by side in secret military research facilities.
