Budd Hopkin?s books on the subject of UFOs and alien abduction include Missing Time (1981), Intruders (1987), Witnessed (1996) and his most recent effort, Sight Unseen. In this book, he addresses the issue of alien abductions, what they do and how they get away with it.
Approximately 4 million people worldwide, including countless folks in southern Ontario, claim to have been abducted, usually beginning in childhood and continuing at various intervals throughout their lives. In many instances, there were other people present either in a home or even on the street who should have seen the UFO as it ?scooped up? its victims.
However, Hopkins speculates that abductions are so easily carried out because the extraterrestrials (ET?s) are able to cloak (cover up) the presence of their crafts using a technology that is only now being experimented with on Earth.
He also addresses the subject of UFOs propulsion systems writing that it ?radiates a force field of ionized plasma or infrared energy? that pushes against the gravity of Earth, another idea that is now being seriously considered.
Many abductees believe they have been implanted with what we now know as a microchip and in fact, some have been surgically removed. Hopkins discusses alien mind control reportedly used by the aliens in which electromagnetic energy is utilized to send messages via an implant directly to a person?s brain ? a form of telepathy.
He also writes of an alien agenda to create hybrids (both human and alien), which many abductees claim to have seen. Abductees report medical examinations, removal of ova and sperm, scrapings of the skin, scooping out of an area of skin and at some later date, introduction to hybrid entities that the ET?s claim are their children.
In this area, Hopkins discusses how DNA can now be collected via skin samples and further explains how our scientists are now experimenting with transgenic engineering in which DNA from one animal is spliced into the developing embryo of another animal. Scientists have also played with the idea of cloning evidenced by the sheep, Dolly.
These and other unfolding scientific research, he says, reveal that the aliens are many steps ahead of us technologically but we are catching up. Sight Unseen is a fascinating read. Hopkins, along with his wife, Carol, has certainly done his homework by ferreting out the latest new research.
An artists and sculptor by trade, Hopkins was first drawn to the issue of UFOs when he and two others experienced a daylight sighing near Truro, Massachusetts in 1964. Some 10 years later, he began his first investigation involving a landed UFO and its occupant seen by a number of people in North Hudson Park, New Jersey. He later learned hypnosis and began unraveling the mystery of the phenomenon through those who claimed to have been abducted.
Hopkin's research is extensive and covers many years of gathering first-hand information from abductees. His book is a must-read for any serious UFO and alien enthusiast.
On August 21, 2011, Hopkins passed away at his New York home due to liver cancer and pneumonia. However, he leaves behind a legacy of his talent and work through the
