A Matter of Semantics
"The Phenomenon" as I and others choose to call it is I believe an ecosystem all its own.
You see WE DO NOT KNOW!
There are no experts in the field.
Everyone is making educated guesses.
The language we use is temporary at best and fails to even begin to grasp what we discuss.
It has been pointed out by many that we, meaning humanity does not understand "Time & Space". In fact it has been discussed for years that we need a new way to look at reality.
It is obvious that this other reality has been with us from the beginning.
Can we disregard God in this matter and try to find another savior?
Why do I say this because the majority of long term experiencers always have the same message - "They want to help us."
But doe the data, does the descriptions of adductions that have gone on for centuries if not longer support this claim. In a word "No". - Andy
Many Reports Cite How UFO's/UAP's Respond to Human
Attention - It Depends on Who's Looking!
What we have come to refer to as "The Phenomenon" due to its vast complexity over time has exhibited certain characteristics that is only now beginning to gain attention.
Many reports of UFO/UAP sightings are described with the UFO etc. coming to the person once they look at it or the creature makes eye contact.
Science in general still maintains a close minded attitude even one of denial in the face of many indicators that consciousness is a fundamental driver in our lives and the world around us.
The fear of the invisible or the unproveable has tied objective investigations into human consciousness in knots.
The following video is from a You Tube Video channel named "Disturbingly Real. I found this episode to be particularly well done. His discussion of High Strangeness and researchers like John Keel and Jacques Vallee are excellent. Also he points out per John Keel that experiencers interpret the events through their own beliefs. Keel also wrote that the interdimensional beings caused what we call "High Strangeness" to take place as part of their interaction with humans.
Another recognized aspect of encounters is that they are "Self- negating" (to render itself ineffective or invalid). He goes on to point how Jacque Vallee's view after years of data collecting and research that the entities manipulate and control or consciousness. This apparently results in us experiencing a variety of craft and creatures. Contact also seems to bring with it in many cases other psychic impacts including lost time, trickster (poltergeist) activity which seems to spread amongst people like a contagion.
Also noted is the variety of "smells" associated with many encounters with cryptids and craft including the smell of sulfur often sited by Vatican exorcists when confronting Demonic entities.

The old warning about not to go looking for trouble is ignored by many people as they become more and more obsessed with this phenomenon. The article below is worth the read.
Demonic But Not Demons?
I am providing this video because Father Lambert Discusses aspects of what we lump into "The Phenomenon" I am not asking you to buy into the concept that Aliens are all Demons. Instead I present this information as another source of information about what we know very little about.
Indeed many of the interactions with UFO/UAP'S is not friendly and often cause harm to those experiencers.
Exorcist Fr. Lampert: 8 Ways You Give the Devil a Foothold
Fr. Vincent Lampert, Priest and Exorcist in the Diocese of Indianapolis and author of “Exorcism: The Battle Against Satan and His Demons” presents the 8 ways we can fall victim to spiritual attack: ties to the occult, illicit entertainment, a curse, being dedicated to a demon, abuse that creates emotional wounds and leads to seeking help in bad places, habitual sin, inviting a demon into one’s life, and broken relationships.
I must say, there’s something about his dry matter of fact delivery of such subjects make it particularly scary. And it is scary.

High Strangeness Interdimensional Hypothesis, Ultraterrestrials and the Sandown Clown
Video from Disturbingly Real
"There is a connection between haunted houses, cryptids, poltergeist activity, and UFOs; a unifying hypothesis that seeks to explain why people going through major life changes, while feeling marginalized, seem to experience the most bizarre paranormal activity. this is a video on high strangeness, and the frustrating lack of purpose to the phenomena. if the hypothesis that ultraterrestials reside in the "super spectrum" above the electromagnetic field, it would be easier for them to access the information streaming to television sets, to learn more about us. And, that's exactly what appeared to have happened when two children vacationing in Sandown, UK came across one of the strangest ultraterrestrials documented." from video introduction
Science Tries to Explain Consciousness But Can't
Video from Jordan B. Peterson
"Dr. Peterson recently traveled to the UK for a series of lectures at Oxford and Cambridge. This conversation was recorded during that period with Sir Roger Penrose, a British mathematical physicist who was awarded the 2020 Nobel Prize in Physics for “discovering that black hole formation is a robust predictor of Einstein’s general relativity.” Moderated by Dr. Stephen Blackwood.' from video introduction
Sir Roger Penrose has always (in my opinion) made an effort to objectively think about consciousness. This discussion is about one hour forty minutes long. Here is the breakdown:

The Dangers of Interaction with "The Phenomenon"
Right now there is plenty of documented evidence that contact with "The Phenomenon" in whatever form it appears (UFO's, bigfoot, dog man etc.) is hostile in deed if not in word. Many people familiar with the wide range of manifestations will warn people away from seeking contact with an unknown entity.
As a practical matter if we use the experiences of Exorcists as a guide or at least an indication of how entities interact with us and our realm we will see why the current cavalier approach to communicate with an unknown entity is foolhardy and dangerous.
Below is a report about one of the most well know Abductees Author Whitley Strieber. If your read the report the details which include a rectal exam are not evidence of making friends.
Whitley Strieber Abduction Report
"Whitley Strieber is one of the most well known UFO researchers in the area of alien abduction, and alien implants. His well known book, “Communion” is a UFO classic. It was also made into a movie by the same name.
In upper state New York over the 1985 Christmas holidays, Strieber was staying in his isolated cabin with his wife and son. At this time, Strieber was already a well know writer. He had become somewhat suspect of potential intruders, and had recently installed a high tech alarm system in the cabin.
At approximately 11:00 PM on the 26th of December, he activated the system, and the family retired for the night. After a couple of hours, he was awakened by an unusual sound. He felt that the security of his cabin had been breached. He was soon shocked to see a creature in his bedroom.
After this, the next thing he knew he was sitting in the woods which surrounded his cabin. His memories of what had occurred were fragmented. Eventually, to reestablish memories of that night, and understand what had really happened, he would undergo regressive hypnosis by Dr. Donald F. Klein.." from the article: 1985: The Abduction of Whitley Strieber

A Look Inside People’s Brains Who Say They’ve Had a UFO Encounter - New York Post
Video from The New York Post
"A professor has been testing the brains of people who say they’ve experienced a UFO encounter — and these are the symptoms they display. Dr. Garry Nolan, a Professor of Pathology at Stanford University who has published more than 300 research articles and holds 40 US patents, has spent the past decade analyzing materials from alleged Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon (UAP). Speaking to Vice’s Motherboard, Nolan opened up about his work and revealed what sparked his interest in UAP. Nolan, who admitted to being “an avid reader of science fiction,” said his interest took flight when he reached out to a man named Steven Greer, who claimed a small skeleton was possibly an alien. It was eventually revealed that the skeleton was human as it had “a number of mutations in skeletal genes that could potentially explain the biology,” Nolan explained. Nolan published a paper titled “Whole-genome sequencing of Atacama skeleton shows novel mutations linked with dysplasia” — which led the professor to be contacted by people linked to the CIA and various aeronautics corporations." from video introduction
How To Communicate With Extraterrestrials (ETs): They DO NOT Want You To KNOW THIS! Dr. Steven Greer
Video from Michael Sandler's Inspire Nation
"There is a lot of information out there on aliens and UFOs/UAPs but there is just as much that we don't know as many questions have been left unanswered until now. And is it possible that we have figured out a way to communicate with ETs? If you've ever wanted to speak with higher dimensional beings, then do we have the Dr. Steven Greer show for you. Today I'll be talking with Dr. Steven Greer, on how to communicate with highest dimensional beings, and why it's more important now than ever! Dr. Steven Greer is a leading UFO expert, founder of the Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence (CSETI), the Disclosure Project, the CE5 Contact app, and the creator of numerous Extra-terrestrial documentaries on helping us find out the truth about ETs." from video introduction
I include these videos to illustrate that Cryptids etc. are all a spoke on the same wheel we call "The Phenomenon" They appear to be all connected in some way.

"..Can Christians Believe in Aliens?
Orthodox Christians already believe in at least one form of intelligent life that exists and was not created on Earth: angels (Neh. 9:6, Col. 1:16). For this reason, some Christians believe that, if aliens exist, they are a form of fallen angel (demons). But is it possible that other forms of intelligent alien life exist in the universe?
The answer depends on how we interpret the Bible and what we believe about God’s sovereignty.
The Bible does not explicitly affirm or deny the existence of non-angelic extraterrestrial beings. Some take the position that this implies such beings not only do not exist but that they cannot exist. For instance, some have pointed to a statement in the Westminster Confession of Faith (1:6)—“The whole counsel of God, concerning all things necessary for his own glory, man’s salvation, faith, and life, is either expressly set down in Scripture, or by good and necessary consequence may be deduced from Scripture”—and applied it to the issue of aliens. They claim that if aliens existed, God would have told us about such beings.
Other believers take the silence of Scripture as an opening from which we could conclude that it is possible such beings exist. Why would the Bible need to mention them if they were not to be discovered for 2,000 years after the founding of the church? Why would such knowledge be necessary when it would not affect billions of Christians throughout history?
Another factor is our perspective on God’s sovereignty, the right and power of God to do all that he decides to do (Job 42:2). Does God have the right to create intelligent alien beings without telling us about them in his Word? Many Christians would say he does have such a right, since he has made it clear: “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways” (Isa. 55:8).
The reality is that such beings either do or do not exist, and that fact is known to God since he would have had to create them (Col. 1:16). Indeed, if aliens do not exist, it is because God has sovereignly chosen not to create them. Perhaps we should be more enamored with God’s sovereign power than with the question of whether he has used that power to create aliens.
Ultimately, since belief in aliens is neither commanded nor forbidden in the Bible, we should consider the issue one of the “disputable matters” (Rom. 14:1). While we may fruitfully enjoy discussing the issue, we should not let it divide us.." from the article: The FAQs: What Are People Saying About UFOs?
As I have said in the past there is a very steep learning curve for this subject. In fact many men like Jacques Vallee for example have spent a lifetime in research and we are no closer to any idea or concept. Will we ever know? - Andy
I will be focusing more on the abduction, experiencer aspect of "The Phenomenon" in an upcoming post.
