Stan Rosenthal’s Tao Te Ching
Introductory Notes by Stan Rosenthal. (English)
A preface and introductory notes in which Rosenthal explains his intention and strategy.
The creative principle unifies
the inner and external worlds.
It does not depend on time or space,
is ever still and yet in motion;
thereby it creates all things,
and is therefore called
'the creative and the absolute';
its ebb and its flow extend to infinity.
We describe the Tao as being great;
we describe the universe as great;
nature too, we describe as great,
and man himself is great.
Man's laws should follow natural laws,
just as nature gives rise to physical laws,
whilst following from universal law,
which follows the Tao.

Abducted : How People Come to Believe …
Here is an interesting article to give you some background.
Alien abductions: The Real Deal? by Psychology Today. (English)
Summary: What leads people to believe they've been abducted by aliens?
A review by Slate:
Is there any consensus about the psychology of alien abduction? Prior research has yielded a few insights, some of which are hardly surprising: People who believe they've been abducted tend to be fantasy-prone and eccentric, for one. On the other hand, they don't tend to be crazy. Most abductees are regular Joes, with decent jobs; though they have varying levels of education, they are predominantly white and middle class.

An interview with Susan Clancy, author of Abducted: How People Come to Believe They Were Kidnapped By Aliens.
"It's really so boring after you've heard one. For the most part they're all the same. I was in my bed and someone took me out of my bed and then I ended up on some kind of table (a black table usually) and then there are these creatures looking down at me and then they did so and so to me. The plot is always the same."
