You may have read my earlier post regarding the above subject matter. I have now put some thoughts and ideas together, regarding the full investigation I am soon to start.
It has come to light through my own research into the subject of UFO's and alien abduction, it would appear at first glance that there may well be a link with "Myalgic Encephalomyelitis" (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) and the Alien Abduction scenario.
I have been during the course of my work, over the last two years been I will not use the word working, perhaps being a friendly ear to an abductee a 32 year old female from the UK who as well as having a long history of medical problems has been diagnosed with M.E.
Even more interesting is that she is a member of an abductee group who meet once a month, in London. This group has 20 members who attend regularly. These people are a fair cross section of the populous, who travel from all over the country to the meetings.
Although I am good friends with the woman mentioned above, I also know other members of this group. and the other day I was interested to learn that out of the 20 members of the group.14 members of the group have all been medically diagnosed with "Myalgic Encephalomyelitis."
After doing some cursory investigation work, I have it confirmed from B.R.A.M.E. group who are the World wide network for this illness. with groups in 18 countries.
I have discovered that,
The ME/CFS Charities Alliance: CONSIDER that the report's estimate of 500,000 - 1 million sufferers in the UK (1-2% of the population, ) is a vast overestimate of the true situation. The data used include studies of patients with chronic fatigue rather than chronic fatigue syndrome. Out of the total figure about 25% of sufferers are house bound.
The 14 people who are involved in this group, diagnosed with M.E. actually represents 70% of the group, as this 70% figure is extremely high, this must warrant further study, to try to examine all possible causes of this anomalous figure,
If any good is to come from the gathering of this potential data linking the alien abduction scenario and "Myalgic Encephalomyelitis" then of course it will be required that my investigation is meticulous in the way in which I gather the data,for the analysis of the data, I will endeavor to employ the help of professional people from various back grounds of the hallowed halls of academe, which are applicable to the illness and all possible variables. I have made a short list, and will be approaching these people direct shortly.
Some ideas I have regarding how we could put this study in operation would be to first through the utilising of a person or persons in the US who have hands on knowledge of alien abduction, would be to contact a number of abductee support groups, the number of which to be determined, to ask some questions.
1. To ask how many members each group has on it register?
2. To ask if any of the members of the group have been diagnosed with "Myalgic Encephalomyelitis"
3. To ask each support group leader, if the members of the group would be willing to supply confirmation that they have been diagnosed with M.E
4. To ask if these people would be willing to in no more than 500 words 1 side of a piece of A4 paper, describe briefly when the realised they were being abducted, how this was brought to there attention.
5.To also give a brief case history of when in relation to the discovery that they were being abducted did they get diagnosed with M.E.
6. To issue all abducte's taking part in the study, with a reference number so as to protect the privacy of the individual.
Obviously the above questions are not final yet, and are open to suggestion's and alterations until I am happy that, the people involved in for what ever reason's, in the dis-crediting and dissection of other types of research connected to the subject of ufology, that these face less spOOks, must find no door available for them to enter and start the trashing of this project, as I will only have one chance at this, I believe that the information would then be tainted,
To also carry out a similar procedure in all English speaking countries, from the 18 countries that are involved with B.R.A.M.E.. To see if there is a World wide pattern to the increased, percentage of the illness among abductees?.
Part two would be to put together a sort of questionnaire, for the members of all English speaking members of: B.R.A.M.E. The Blue Ribbon for the Awareness of M.E.
The questionnaire would be, laid out in question format similar to a polygraph with control question for example.
Q1. How long have you had M.E?
Q2. What is, in your case the worst aspect or symptom of this illness?
Q3. When you were younger did you believe in Santa Claus?
Q4. Do you feel that there is other intelligent life in the universe?
Followed by more questions, obviously the questions set would need to be very carefully chosen and positioned so as to not prompt the cries of leading the participants.
At the end of the questionnaire there should be a small statement that if they wish to discuss any of the questions that they have answered then supply some form of medium for them to come forward if they felt that they had something to say about about the survey they have taken, the collection of this data.
There may or may not be a number of people who have been and still are being taken against there will by these mostly nighttime visitors and as in all walks of life there are lots of people who have not spoke about this scenario, either because they did not know who to speak to or they feared ridicule if they spoke out, although I am sure you are now aware of my stance on the situation, if this hypoth is a correct, then it is imperative that I do the research and back up what really is at the moment a thought based on some cursory information if the data represents the connection, then this could well be a back door, to Pandora's box. and of coarse the opposite is also true that the data may reveal something completely different..
I am open to suggestions if you feel that there are some questions, that could be used in the questionnaire which would be of benefit to the investigation, and all help and assistance is greatly appreciated in this matter.
Although the data with regard to the anomalous substantial increase in the percentage of the population of Earth who have: "Myalgic Encephalomyelitis" (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) is 1 to 2%.
Against this 70% figure which has surfaced with regard to the 20 abducte's in the group that I have looked at.
I feel that a figure of 500 or a 1000 abductee;s globally would have to submit data to gauge an accurate study as to whether there is without doubt a connection between "Myalgic Encephalomyelitis" (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) and alien abduction.
I am asking for the for the assistance of abductee support groups around the planet if you are reading this post to contact myself direct.
What this possible connection is could be a number of things, for example.
In the interests of not jumping to conclusions. It could be that:
1. The abduction scenario is a direct symptom and brain disorder and part of the many parts of "Myalgic Encephalomyelitis" (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) and that all people who are claiming abduction have this illness, but the symptoms in some abducte's are minute compared to others and that they do not know that they have the illness.
However if that were the case it would open up the question?
Why do sufferers of "Myalgic Encephalomyelitis" (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) all claim to have been abducted by Aliens?
That Alien abduction is yet another symptom to this illness, a symptom which can manifest its self in the human brain as a memory, the same memory, This in its self if true, would for me anyway, be quite an astounding discovery
Or perhaps that "Myalgic Encephalomyelitis" (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) Is a direct result of the alleged alien implants, which it has been claimed by a large number of abducte's to have been placed in side of there heads, and in some way be causing the illness because of the implants interruption by proximity to certain areas of the brain, causing the brain to send out incorrect signals to the body and the causem effect of this is the human body receiving the incorrect information to function normally, causing the multi faceted symptoms of "Myalgic Encephalomyelitis" (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome).
There is even a hypothesis that these aliens are in some way feeding off the human life force draining energy from the alleged victim of these abduction's, and the symptoms after these alleged incidents, do bear a striking resemblance to the symptoms of "Myalgic Encephalomyelitis" (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome).
Or that the abductions scenario is all in the minds of the abducte's and that "Myalgic Encephalomyelitis" (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) in the cases where abduction is also being claimed, is a direct result of the depression being caused by believing that they are being abducted by aliens.
Or perhaps it is something all together different from the from above? We will have to wait and see what information if any the investigation reveals.
With the data collated after the cursory investigation with the twenty abducte's who are members of the same group. Which has shown that in this group at the percentage of people people diagnosed with. "Myalgic Encephalomyelitis" (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) Is 68% above the national average.It has to warrant further investigation, I will be contacting relevant party's who can offer correct medical and psychological comment on the data when I have collated it.
I am sure that we all have our own opinions on this topic however There will be plenty of time for what I think? You think? When and if the data supports such further comments and investigation.
I believe that if the cursory evidence gathered from this global investigation returns the same high anomalous figure of or around 70 %, this may well lead to the opening or at least unlocking of Pandora's box.
