The Aliens Next Door
Three of them are on the right side of my bed. I try to holler but I can't. I can't move. I'm scared, remembering the pain from the other times. They fly through the ceiling and out the roof, taking me with them. Next thing I'm in their craft, lying on a table, and I'm cold. I'm naked. They're putting something up into my vagina, and I'm scared they'll leave it there. They wear skintight black coveralls. They look like black grasshoppers. No hair, wide jaw. Black eyes, big, halfway between round and oval. Small openings for nostrils. No ears, just foot-long antennae. A thumb and three long pointy fingers. They're cold when they touch me. They talk to one another and I hear them in my mind. They have a damp, musty odor about them. They roll me over and put a burning hot needle along my spine. They aren't saying anything. I can't cry for help. Afterwards I'm floating out of a craft. There are beings with me surrounding me. I'm not scared. I'm back in bed, drifting off to sleep. They're gone. (Gordon, 82).
Many of the world's inhabitants have reported experiences like those of Mary, a hospital administrator, who, at the age of forty-three, remembered her abduction by alien beings through hypnotic regression. (Gordon 82) Many people believe in alien beings from other planets. Many people also believe that aliens have visited Earth in UFOs. A UFO is an unidentified flying object. This usually ranges from an airplane to the much publicized alien aircrafts from outer space.
When people think of aliens they usually think of little green men from Mars, other little gray men, or giant monsters. The little gray men are described to be about four feet tall. There heads are large and oval. The beings' eyes are also shaped like ovals, but turned up at the ends like cat's eyes. The aliens have also been described as having long fingers that extend from the wrist. These wrists are attached to extremely long arms connected at narrow shoulder blades. These alien beings are also said to radiate a luminescent aura. The large monsters have been described as anything that can be imagined from the depths of one's soul.

| Essay on The Millionaire Next Door, by Thomas J. Stanley - The book I chose to review for this course is titled, “The Millionaire Next Door”, by Thomas J. Stanley, Ph.D., and William D. Danko, Ph.D. After learning that it was published in 1996, prior to the widespread availability of the internet, and subsequent ebusiness boom, I was slightly sceptical that the information held within might not be relevant for someone like myself trying to thrive in today’s chaotic economy. Fortunately, I was wrong. The Millionaire Next Door is full of concepts and principles that put into perspective how we view money and status in our society, and also debunks the myth that America’s wealthy are the ones doing most of the spending while living elaborate and care...

The threat of an alien invasion is usually thought of as a plot for the latest movies made for television and the big screen, or the basis for a new book by authors such as Steven King, John Saul, or Robin Cook. Most people do not think that an alien invasion will occur at any given moment of any given day. If a person were asked what would happen if the Earth was occupied by alien beings, he or she would more than likely reply, "...you know, what happened in [fill in your favorite alien movie]..." Such movies and books have glorified what would happen during such an invasion. Movies and books like Invasion, Independence Day, and The Invasion of the Body Snatchers have made the people of Earth believe that alien beings are bad, and that if they are, we as a planet can beat them. The truth is that if these alien beings really did attack Earth they would have many more technological advances than the people of this planet.
Alien beings have been visiting our planet for many years. In The fields of South America, crop designs have be noticed for many generations. Surprisingly these designs do not become overgrown with vegetation as does the surrounding land. Some of these designs are circles, while others form pictures of people, some even form geometrical images. These designs are extremely large and expand for many miles. (Jackson 58) It has also been discovered that visitors from other worlds were reported by Ezekiel of the Bible.
Now it came to pass in the thirteenth year, in the fourth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I was among captives by the river of Chebar, that the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God....
Out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures...they had the likeness of a man....
Now as I beheld the living creatures, behold one wheel upon the earth by the living creatures...
The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the color of a beryl: and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel....
And when they went, they went upon their four sides: and they turned not when they went.
As for their rings, they were so high that they were dreadful; and their wings were full of eyes round them four.
And when the living creatures went, the wheels went by them: and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up. (Emenegger, 3-4)
Some people believe that the governments of the world are hiding the knowledge of an alien presence on Earth. The largest of these conspiracies has to with the American government and an incident in Roswell, New Mexico. (Randle, Schmitt, 3) During the holiday weekend of July 1947, witness reported seeing and hearing a crash in the desert area around Roswell, New Mexico. One of the witnesses informed a friend who informed more people. Thanks to these people Roswell was not completely covered up by the military. A local sheepherder was the first to see the crash site, and apparently informed his friend Mac Brazel. Brazel was the second person to see the crash site. He reported the site to the army and also reported that he could see two non-human bodies in the aircraft. (Randle, Schmitt, 196)
The government and the military refuse to acknowledge the fact that UFOs do exist. They claim to possess no such knowledge. If the military believes this, why does the Air Force give it's cadets lessons about UFOs and how to deal with their presence? The Air Force even goes so far to hand each cadet a text book about the event of encountering a UFO. (Emenegger, 185)
Conferences concerning the presence of alien beings on Earth are being held all over the world. At the Rocky Mountain Conference in 1991, one-hundred-and-ninety people attended. This conference was held at the University of Wyoming. Most of the people are from wide open states such as Montana and Wyoming, but there are also people from other countries. Three-fourths of the people attending are abductees, while the other one-fourth consists of UFOlogists, reporters, researchers, and investigators. Many of the UFOlogists work for MUFON. The Mutual UFO Network is the largest UFO network in the United States. The other UFOlogists work for the New Being Project which is based at Berkeley.
The conference holds support group meetings for the abductees, the spouses of abductees, and the families of abductees. In the evenings there are UFO scholars giving lectures. June Parnell, who is one of the leaders of the conference says that no pictures or note taking is allowed...
Everyone will have time to talk, and it's confidential -- you know, like 'I'm June, and I'm an alcoholic.'
The question has been asked whether or not people really know if aliens do exist. When a person looks at the television or a movie screen, he or she is bound to see an alien representation. In movies like Independence Day and in television shows like "The X-Files" and "Millennium" people are shown that aliens do exist, and the writers know that this is what the people know and want.
There are many places in the universe where earth-like planets may exist. The star Vega is one such area. This star is the third brightest in the sky and is the primary star of the constellation Lyra. Until recently, Vega was thought to be the place to look for the formation of life. It is estimated that in approximately fourteen thousand years Vega will have developed enough to resemble the galaxy that surrounds our sun. Planets will have formed in the Vega system that can sustain life. It is even possible for Vega to have already produced planets around the size of Jupiter. (Jackson, 72-73)
The universe is fifteen billion years old. There are one hundred billion galaxies with over one hundred billion suns each...Many of these planets have Earth-like atmospheres and can support oxygen-breathing life forms... (Invasion)

I was unable to locate the one magazine article that was written by Mr. Gordon.
Understanding the Universe has been a continual mystery to humanity. Throughout human history, individuals have been searching for answers to numerous questions that were provoked by the unknown space above their heads. Insights provided by shamans, priests, and scientists have increased curiosity about the esoteric nature of the Universe rather than decreased it. Though it may seem as if we know much about the Universe now, this is an illusion. The most significant mystery still lies in the question, “Is there extraterrestrial life?” Just as Christopher Columbus saw that first glimpse of previously unknown land (to the western world) on the horizon, it may turn out that we will happen upon another species that is as intelligent as us, or even more so.
One huge leap has already been made in this quest. Scientific research has shown that living organisms can survive in conditions much different than those that are present on Earth. This is confirmed by the existence of extremophiles—organisms that thrive in conditions lethal for other forms of life. These conditions may include high pressures, the presence of toxins, an absence of oxygen, extreme temperatures, and acidity. One extremophile species, the Ferroplasma acidiphilum, is a microorganism that can only survive in environments containing such large concentrations of iron that any other life form would expire there. Not only can extremophiles thrive in these conditions, but they cannot survive in what are considered to be normal environments. These organisms alone prove that life can exist in conditions on planets that were previously thought of as too extreme (Silverman, 2009).
Numerous UFO sighting reports can be considered as a significant piece of evidence in favor of the existence of extraterrestrial life. What makes some of these accounts difficult to deny even for the strongest skeptics are claims made by reputable people, such as law enforcement, the military, pilots, and even astronauts. For example, in the early hours of December 14, 1994 in Trumbull County, Ohio, police were flooded by phone calls from alarmed citizens claiming they were observing an UFO in the sky. A policeman drove out to the area where the reports were coming from to put an end to what he thought was a hoax. But after he arrived at the place, he too had witnessed the UFO that supposedly lit up the entire sky and caused the malfunction of electronic devices within his patrol cruiser. That is just one example from thousands of reports made each year all over the world (Rense, 2012).
Scientists have also made attempts to calculate the possibility of extraterrestrial existence mathematically. In 2001, an astronomer by the name of Frank Drake developed an equation that was later named after him. Drake distinguished eight fundamental factors that would enable intelligent life to thrive, subsequently creating an equation that estimated the amount of planets that could hold the possibility of these essentials to be present. His results were astounding and showed that hundreds of thousands of planets other than Earth could contain intelligent life forms. The basis for this equation originated at Ohio State University in 1977 when a radio signal was picked up with a frequency that was known as improbable. This transmission lasted 37 seconds and came from a location over 220 million light years away from the nearest star. The only conclusion that could be drawn is that some sort of intelligent life had to have existed in order to send this signal, since it was most likely sent with the help of a technological device (Kaulay, n.d.).
Living in an age when technology has made it possible to access virtually endless information with the click of a button, it is easy to forget that humanity still remains ignorant about the wonders of nature. One such mystery is extraterrestrial intelligent life. The existence of extremophiles, numerous UFO reports all over the world, and mathematical evidence such as the Drake equation, speak in favor of the claim that humanity is not the only clever species in the Universe. A few decades or centuries later, the idea that humans could ever be the only intelligent life form may seem laughable. Until then, the innate hunger for the answer to the question of whether humanity is alone in the Universe or not will persist.
