Jonathan:

No, I didn't mean to assert The
Hag was real at all. The interest-
ing thing to me is that she doesn't just appear to people in
western cultures but also to asians.

The fact this is so does more to
errode the validity of Alien
Abduction than to affirm the val-
idity of any of it. It suggests
something much more like what you
are suggesting: that people have
certain "types" of tormentors
hardwired into their unconscious-
nesses, and are likely to draw
from these when creating an hall-
ucination to account for what is
paralyzing them.

In my own case the tormentor
took shape as "The Sniggering
Man", which, as far as I know, is
unique to me, but there could be
hundreds of thousands of people
who've hallicinated something
similar that I don't know about.

In cultures where The Hag is
common she is widely believed to
be real, just as Aliens are now,
in certain circles.

I don't remember his name either, but the actor was Russel Crowe.
Off topic: His name is John Nash

I believe I've told this story before, but once when I was in Dresden, I drank about six glasses of absinthe. Long story short, I blacked out and woke up on a train at 6:00 AM in the next city over. Not being all together, I decided that it would be a good idea to start walking the ten miles back to my hotel. As I was walking, I passed through a forest. I remember I suddenly stood still and looked at the trees. For some reason I was completely enthralled by the trees. Then these trees began to transform into the shape of stereotypical aliens.... Yeah, that was fun.

Anyway, perhaps some reported cases of alien sightings are simply the result of mind-altering drugs.

Sting: Yes!, That's the name!
Entrophy: You're nuts.
Zoob: The Hag never went around in space craft, was never shot down by the government, and didn't go around exsanguinating farm animals and one Brasilian man. The Alien/Hag comparison doesn't add up.

Johnathan;

Aliens are the Hag's flying
monkeys.

guess this is hard for me to relate to since, as far as I know, reality has never betrayed me in such a way. I don't think I have ever actually hallucinated...except perhaps when I was on morphine in the hospital...at least I was told that I hallucinated but I don't remember a thing!
Hehe exactly the same for me but it happened on the come down. There have been other times in my past but hallucination was expected ( my vision has never been quite the same :/ )
