Some representations of ETs involved in abductions

The Grays 
Seem to range across a diverse spectrum of species, 
from relatively simple biological robots to highly spiritual beings.

Mantis (or Mantid) ETS 
Often in authority positions during abduction, tend to have more positive 
effect on people, more intelligent, doctors or guides.

Reptilian or Reptoid ETS
Appear in very negative forms but occasionally positive as well.

Exophilosophy meeting this week (Oct. 18th & 20th) with Shafer's Film Studies class in Chapman 605

Dear class, we will be meeting this coming week with John Shafer's film studies class in Chapman Hall, Room 605 in the basement level, regular time 2-3:30. On Tuesday, we will be having a general discussion about the culture of aliens and ufos, as portrayed in cinema. I believe we will be screening (an edited version of the) new Independence Day film on Thursday with Shafer's class. If you haven't gotten to them yet, please read and watch the links below. I also added a paper by Michael Salla about the possibility that Gene Roddenberry had access to inside information about ETS which he used to create Star Trek. See you at Chapman hall tomorrow! :)
