Over the years of reading alien abduction reports by witnesses, there have been a few themes that have made it into the mainstream, but even more perplexing are the few tests that seem ubiquitous in the raw material but are not actually spoken of very often at all in media accounts of these events. And of particular interest is a single test, allegedly conducted by strange beings that has been surfacing a lot lately in reports of alien abductions.
The accounts generally see witnesses standing in a room and looking at a single box which is somehow either laying flat on a platform or hovering in mid air in front of them. The witnesses are made to rotate the box with their minds in certain ways. The way the tests are conducted is usually said to be in the form of a sort of game. And as the witnesses move the box correctly they are rewarded by being taken to future tests. If they are incorrect, the witnesses have expressed that they feel a burning sensation that is a sort of negative reinforcement.
This was the case with a recent abductee who submitted her report to the Mutual UFO Network earlier this week in Montana and several others over the past few years. It’s not so common that it has made itself a part of the culture, but it’s certainly one of those things that you remember reading and eventually keep a tally of after a while. Other witnesses have reported the box experiments being coupled with ball experiments and other geometric shapes. Sometimes they even suggest that more complex mental tests are performed to achieve telekinesis or something similar.
The witness from Montana says that in 1991 they found themselves remembering a dream-like state where they were performing complex telekinetic tasks in front of several “observers” who were holding her against her will. As the tests went on she even helped others perform their own tests, but had difficulty when another sort of test came about where they had to deflect oncoming bolts of energy toward them. The mysterious events were coupled with an incident involving lost time that occurred at their school earlier.
The strangest part of them all is the fact that the incidents all seem to consider themselves completely unique. The witnesses are just as surprised as anyone to learn that similar tests have been reported in other circles involving alien abductees.
Those who follow the work of Jung might suggest that the tests and dreams could very well be showing up because they are dealing with very basic symbols that manifest in the form of dreams. But when people of widely different backgrounds report these incidents, it seems far less likely.
But the alternative is even stranger. What if these beings really were somehow conducting tests that was intended to gauge some sort of telekinetic power? And what would these aliens hope to prove by teaching people a form of telekinesis only to take those abilities away when they return to their normal lives?
