|The Grey Aliens
Associated with the Alien Abduction Phenomenon
UFO Files is an American documentary television series that was produced from 2004 to 2007 for The History Channel. Greys are creatures whose alleged existence is popularly promoted in ufological, paranormal, New Age and fringe science circles while being regarded by the majority of the mainstream scientific community as mental aberrations or symptoms of sleep paralysis.
Greys are most widely associated with the alien abduction phenomenon, wherein claimants allege that Greys are intelligent extraterrestrials who visit Earth and secretly perform medical experiments on humans they have temporarily kidnapped
Greys are typically depicted as grey-skinned diminutive humanoid beings
that possess reduced forms of or outright lack human organs and
Their bodies are usually depicted as being elongated, having a small
chest, and lacking in muscular definition and visible skeletal
structure. Their legs are shorter and jointed differently than one would
expect in a human.
Their limbs are often depicted as proportionally
different than a human's; their humerus and thighs are the same lengths
as their forearms and shins, respectively.
They may have 3-5 fingers and may be depicted as lacking opposable
thumbs.Greys are depicted as having unusually large heads in proportion
to their bodies.
They are depicted as having no hair anywhere on the
body, including the face, and no noticeable outer ears or noses, but
only small openings or orofices for ears and nostrils.
They are depicted
as having very small mouths, and very large opaque black eyes with no
discernible iris or pupil. Sometimes Greys are alternately depicted as
having no noticeable nostrils or mouths at all.

From a star chart reported by Betty Hill, an elementary schoolteacher and amateur astronomer, Marjorie Fish, concluded that the home planet of these beings was located in the Zeta Reticuli star system.
Greys are therefore sometimes known as Zeta Reticulans.
Some Ufologists believe that the
Greys are extradimensional and are either nonphysical or composed of
materials entirely dissimilar to those from our universe.
They consider the common appearance of the Greys to be a symbolic representation of their true form.
The general humanoid appearance represents an actual relationship with
mankind, the large head represents superhuman intelligence, and the
large eyes represent superhuman perception, while the general frailty
shows them to be somehow degraded.
In abduction reports there is a stark contrast between the abductee's
conviction that the events are completely real with occurrences that
should be physically impossible.
Greys are commonly included in alien abduction claims and are a focus of
ufology, with attributes that may differ from those described above.
These claims include two distinct groups of Greys that differ in height.
Abductees say that they recognize the leader of their abductors by its
Some ufologists and abduction researchers believe that
taller Greys, with their reported increased authority and apparently
more complex psychology may be the only Grey type to be biologically
alive and that the shorter form could be their artificially constructed
robot or cyborg servants.
Some alien abduction reports have depicted variant skin colors such as
blue-grey, green-grey, or purple-grey and some times not grey at all.
The skin is typically described as being extremely smooth, almost as if
made of an artificial material like rubber or plastic.
Abduction claims are described as extremely traumatic, similar to an
abduction by humans or even a sexual assault in the level of trauma and
The eyes are often a focus of abduction claims. They are said
to not move or focus in any observable way from the naked eye.
Claims often describe a Grey staring into the eyes of an abductee when
conducting mental procedures.
This staring is claimed to induce
hallucinogenic states or directly provoke different emotions.
abduction claimants often say that the Grey was only inches from their
face during the staring mindscan procedure, they often do not
subsequently claim feeling breath or seeing the Grey's chest move from
According to English reproductive biologist Jack Cohen, the typical
image of a Grey, given that it would have evolved on a world with
different environmental and ecological conditions from Earth, is too
physiologically similar to a human to be credible as a representation of
Their physical structure has been sometimes viewed as
supporting the Panspermia theory of origins, although the "parallel
evolution" required is not scientifically plausible.
The "parallel evolution" concept, utilized as a plot device by Star Trek
writers Gene Roddenberry and Gene Coon and referred to as "Hodgkins Law
of Parallel Planet Development".
However, even this fictional
theory does not explain such remarkable Grey-human similarities as the
facial geometry, the apparent sternal-xiphoidal process, the evident
pectoral-trapezial architecture, and the number of toes per foot.
Grey aliens (or "Greys") are alleged extraterrestrial beings whose existence is promoted in ufological, paranormal, and New Age communities, named for their skin color.
The Greys are widely associated with alien abductions throughout the world.

Greys are typically depicted as grey-skinned diminutive humanoid beings that possess reduced forms of, or completely lack, external human organs such as noses, ears or sex organs.

Whitley Strieber goes with his
family and some friends to his holiday home in the forest. They
experience some weird occurances...
Communion is a 1989 drama/thriller film based on the book by Whitley
Strieber with the same name, starring Christopher Walken and Frances
It tells a story of a family
that experiences the extraterrestrial phenomenon while on vacation at a
remote vacation home in the wilderness. According to Strieber, the story is a real-life account of his own
encounter with "visitors", with Walken playing the role of the author.
Some conspiracy theorists believe that Greys represent part of a government-led disinformation or plausible deniability campaign, or that they are a product of government mind control experiments.
Dr. Steven Greer, founder of the Disclosure Project, head of CSETI, and a prominent UFO conspiracy theorist, has publicly presented over 400 "government, military, and intelligence community witnesses" that have offered testimony to the existence of aliens and UFO and/or efforts to cover up their existence and who have stated that they would be willing to defend their claims under oath.
One theory that could explain such seemingly impossible coincidences is the idea that extraterrestrial beings had some influence on the evolution of life on Earth in the distant past, specifically that extraterrestrials were directly involved in the evolution of primates, including humans.
This was supposedly done by genetic engineering, cross-breeding, or a combination of both. This idea, regarded as nonsense by the mainstream science community, first gained widespread exposure with the 1968 publication of Chariots of the Gods? by Erich von Däniken and has since been the source of much controversy, and has inspired numerous other books with various related theories.

Proponents of this theory of alien genetic/evolutionary intervention on Earth argue that if the Greys (or similar beings) were performing genetic manipulations and/or experiments with pre-human life forms on Earth, then it would be logical, and perhaps almost expected, that these alleged aliens may have attempted to influence the evolution of life forms here in a direction consistent with their own genetic makeup.
And possibly even similar to their own physiology and general physical structure, since genetically that is what they would presumably be most familiar with.
Since there is no evidence of what types of life or physiology might evolve on other habitable planets, no way to accurately gauge the likelihood or unlikelihood of coincidences in evolution on two separate planets.
And there is no conclusive evidence of any alleged past extraterrestrial genetic manipulation in our own evolution, the debate over the evolutionary feasibility of the Greys (or any other bipedal, humanoid extraterrestrial species) is ultimately nothing more than speculation on both sides.
