Telepathy is perhaps one of the difficult things for non-abductees to understand. I have this feeling that most non-abductees have a false or incorrect notion about the telepathy the aliens use. This blog will be an attempt to clear up any misconceptions.
In a nutshell, alien telepathy is "nonverbal communication void of non-verbal cues". Let me explain. Suppose both you the reader and I are standing in a kitchen. Without saying a word I pull out a chair, look at you in the eye and then point to the chair. Because you are intelligent you can comprehend my nonverbal communication and understand that I want you to sit down. Now imagine the scenario like this. Suppose we are in the same kitchen and without moving out the chair, without pointing, and without making any facial or body language except look at you in the eyes, you just know that I want you to sit down at the table. You don't hear my words in your heard telling you to do this. You just know it. It's like our minds are one mind. The overwhelming majority of communication with the aliens is this form of telepathy. The aliens just look at you and you know what they are communicating.
There is a second form of telepathy, one in which audible voices are heard in the "mind's ear". Many abductees have reported this; however it is uncommon. Sometimes the voice is a robotic voice. It is my personal belief that both forms of telepathy used by the aliens are a result of their technology and are not based on any naturally evolved ability. Remember, I have stated in past blogs that the ultimate sentience behind the UFO phenomenon is a machine-based intelligence, as in an ultra-advanced A.I. I personally believe the telepathy the aliens use is a result of their technology.
Going further I think this form of telepathy may be detrimental even dangerous for human beings. If you recall in Steven Spielberg's 2002 miniseries, Taken, anybody who has prolonged telepathic communication with the aliens goes insane and/or dies. This made me ponder whether or not the mind-control the aliens use on abductees may be a form of protecting the abductees' minds from the more dangerous effects of telepathy. The reason why telepathy is so dangerous is due to something that I have termed "mind seepage" or "mind pooling". I will try to explain below.
Say there are two glasses of water. One glass has red water. The other glass has blue water. If a tube could be inserted between the glasses so that water flows back and forth then eventually both glasses will contain purple water. It's impossible to separate the red from the blue. It is permanently effected. The type of telepathy the aliens use seems to be this dangerous form by which they literally possess a "hive mind". So, if the aliens communicate telepathically with a person then it will forever change them. They can't go back to being what they were before the telepathy. So my own personal theory is that one of the reasons why the aliens use the "mental whammy" on abductees is to protect them from the more dangerous aspects of telepathy. If the conscious mind can be dulled or dimmed to border unconsciousness then perhaps the human psyche could survive the onslaught of temporarily merging with a hive-mind. It also may prevent the abdutee from "learning too much" about them during the merger. That's just my theory or opinion. I first blogged on this back in 2005 or 2006.
I also suspect this is why the aliens view abductees as "one of them". If they have "merged" with us, even if only temporarily, then they would still contain pieces of us within their collective minds. Again, that is just my speculation. It could also be that they have altered us in different ways but I will blog on that later.
