First of all lets get things straight, of course people can dream about being abducted and say they were wide awake when they saw it, but its not. Actual alien abductions usually occur at night so people could be sleeping or not. Another thing is if people were abducted I would think that the Greys or Hatchets would be a little smarter of how they do things i.e erasing the people’s memory. So actually you wouldn’t have known that you’ve been abducted. I’ve seen their equipment when one crashes and I’m pretty sure that they know how to erase someones memory, they know more about our brain than we do(as I said before) so they know how our brain works…Especially how to control it(Mind control,emotional control,etc.). All the alien abductions I heard usually take place when the person is sleeping and they wake up to lights outside their window, then they see sillhouette figures that resembles aliens, sometimes people say they can’t move or something or that sort, there are even accounts that they actually saw them. Then a beam of light comes and picks them up and takes them away for mutulations and probing whatever. The true fact about abductions is that yes they do usually get people while they are sleeping but they use a numbing agent that knocks out the person, then they take them up in their ship and do their experiments. Their experiments are usually what we do to the animals here, check to see if they’re healthy, give them some a tag so they can track them and see what the do in everyday life, they probably gave them immunizations or something or that sort. All in all you wouldn’t know if you’ve been abducted unless your one of the few who remember everything probably not though.
