I have just been reading a book titled "The Spiritual Doorway in the Brain: A Neurologists's Search for the God Experience." By Kevin Nelson. Published by Dutton. New York. 2011. ISBN 978-0-525-95188-9.
Nelson's work explores near-death experiences and suggests neurological causes for each of the elements of an NDE.
There are some serious implications for our research into UFO abductions, in Nelson's work. Please take a look at the full post on my own blog at:
Nelson himself, is very definite in his opinion on UFO abductions:
"Nobody knows how many thousands of people have memories of being abducted by aliens, finding themselves onboard spaceships, undergoing invasive medical procedures that leave no mark, meeting non-earthly beings that convey important messages to humanity or spiritual revelations, or having extraterrestrial sexual encounters. All these can be attributed to lucid dreaming REM intrusions and REM paralysis. " (p.196.)
While this is a too simplistic a statement, to me, there would appear to be some possible insights into UFO abductions arising from Nelson's work.
