"Anthropomorphism" is a word meaning to give something non- human, human form, or characteristics. This has been done to our Gods, animals, cars, and extra-terrestrials.

Some of the silliest things trigger my imagination. The latest thing that has thrown my mental cog wheels into a virtual stand still is an opinion that has been suggested by what I assume to be conservatives regarding a Halloween display of 4 foot tall pink skinned "alien" mannequins in a Utah Mall. ZCMI , a mall that is owned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is situated in Downtown Salt Lake and is patronized by tourists and native Utahns alike. Halloween FX, a store that sells Halloween party favors, and costumes recently ran into a snag with the management after someone complained that the "aliens" on display were anatomically correct and needed to be clothed. While the very idea is laughable, management was not laughing and demanded that the aliens either be covered or dressed.

I recently ran into a friend of mine who is a movie critic and we were discussing horror films and what I was planning on doing for Halloween. The conversation moved into recommending Halloween FX for costumes, since I was doing business with them for my show. I told him that I wanted to contact a reporter to discuss some oddity that should end up in the "strange" news category. It was the naked alien story. He chuckled and told me that I had not heard the last of it. When I asked him what he meant he related that a local paper had toured a local spook alley that had an X-files theme. The Rocky Point Haunted house was fortunate enough to display props and actual alien models from Starship Troopers, Independence Day, and The X-files. The paper took pictures of these strange alien props, which included the mutated bodies from the X-files movie. The paper felt that the naked alien bodies needed to be blurred out of focus in order to maintain the Moral values of the paper.

I pointed this out to a number of people and asked them why people have a problem with a so-called naked alien. The answer of course is the fact that both the mall and the paper are both owned by a conservative church. I feel though that this is only part of it. Earlier in the year I had the privilege of talking with Bob Kiviat, who was the executive producer of the Alien Autopsy for Fox. While special effects wizards argued whether or not they could duplicate the controversial film. I brought up the fact that I saw a raw cut of the footage, and in that footage I noticed that the alleged EBE had a small vaginal cavity that Fox evidently felt that was in poor taste for its audience to view. So with the aid of a digital switcher, removed the offending organ not knowing if this was sexual or not. Obviously Fox was not about to take any chances.

Shot of possible Alien vagina Censored by Fox

In 1995 Robert Morning Sky who has appeared many times on the Art Bell show released an audiotape and text transcript called "Alien Sex." In this audiotape Morning Sky states that at the 1995 UFO Congress, held in Mesquite, NV, he was in attendance during two public presentations of material regarding the not-yet-released First Alien Autopsy Footage. Morning Sky could not handle what he was witnessing. He concluded that what he was seeing was the body of a "star elder" or words to that effect. He also claimed that what he was seeing was a disgrace and that the Elder clearly had it's sexual organs showing, and that the "slit" which was eventually censored, had a tendril, or a strange white object hanging outside of the cavity.

Morning Sky suggested that this body is a future hybrid of humans and the "tendril" is what the sex organ would look like after a few hundred thousand years of evolution, quite possibly an asexual creature with both a penis and a vagina. He suggests that we would no longer be male or female, we would be both, although we would be more female, in many respects, than male. Morning Sky later said that perhaps he erred in his observation of the footage of the alien "slit." However pictures don't lie and why did Fox censor the footage? Were the Fox executives seeing something that wasn't there?

The "alien" props in the Halloween store that offended mall patrons appeared to have the same anatomically correct groin area. While the Aliens are standing and no apparent penis is poking out, still the mall management claims that a sexual organ exists. Are they seeing something that isn't there? For realists Alien beings are as hypothetical and mythological as cupid or cherubs in Valentine's day displays. No one thinks to cover the bear bums of winged children. Why is the EBE the latest target? Could it be that perhaps we have accepted the possibility of life elsewhere and that since an alien has been created in our image we have Anthropomorphised the "Hollywood" image of these beings?

What do we know about alien beings? All we know is based on eyewitness testimony. We also can't rule out what we have heard over campfire stories, late night talk shows and Hollywood movies. The Aliens exist only because of what they have left behind, or allegedly erased from people's memories, they do not show themselves or tell us what they are. They appear the way we expect them to, and when they don't most people will reject the stories out right. They appear like angels, or demons depending on perception and bias. They assume forms that command power. They also assume frail forms that have the power to control. The stories of beings such as these have been mentioned in many epochs, and tend to be different with every culture. Cultural expectations dictate how they are to appear and behave. Whether they are biblical angels, medieval fairies, or Irish Leprechauns, they act and perform how the society dictates.

The Alien Autopsy film is the exception to the rule and that is why it has been deemed a fake. There have been so many arguments against the film, and yet there are so many details that have been left unchecked because the alleged alien did not perform as expected. The six digits, the gravity effects on the body are some of the arguments against the film. Special effects wizards who felt as though they were "one upped" have now said that they could do much better. One important factor that has been overlooked is that the image has now burned a memory in pop culture.

Here is the set up. Release a film showing a nude human form on television, under circumstances that would discredit it as "alien" with anyone who might cause a stink. Have the person who presents it have low credibility with people who are in authority. Make sure you throw in inconsistencies, make sure there is controversy among UFO researchers to make them look like fools. If they were united in opinion someone may pay attention. Have the owner of the film make money. There goes the credibility factor again. Add to the confusion the fact that the Photographer is anonymous. Lessen the credibility some more by making the time and place unverifiable. If I was in military intelligence and I had heard that a film of an alien autopsy had slipped through the cracks I would do everything in my power to use what I could to discredit it. Rest assured that whatever purpose the film served, it served it well for it's creators.

One important thing above all that the Alien Autopsy accomplished was the continued indoctrination into the consensus reality of a bald almond eyed humanoid Alien subject. The fundamental naked alien. Which once again is a symbol or marketing Icon for the existence of beings that live outside this world. These beings have the same attributes as what we are evolving towards. They possess a hive or collective intelligence. We have heard that they seem to be incapable of individual thought. They have a tough time with Random behavior. They have difficulty in sharing emotion. They have trouble with humor and sexual expression. They are abusive in some respects and selfish.

While we are throwing around big words like Anthropomorphism, let's throw another one into the lexicon Neotony. Netony is the tendency of bred animals to retain juvenile characteristics. The idea that we are evolving to a state of not looking our age. Everyone is trying to avoid the aging process, and now we are seeing people looking younger and younger. The scary question is this. Are we being bred toward the fetal look of and alien grey? Is this what evolution is leading us to? If our Hominid mothers mated with our Alien fathers then, this could very well be our fate. Is there proof of this mating? Perhaps, if you believe biblical text. After all, the Bible does refer to the sons of god coming down to mate with the daughters of man.

Today's abductee testimony brings us full circle with the nightmarish details of human alien breeding, gynecological intervention and genetic manipulation. The Bible clearly points out that a number of beings created man after their likeness, in their own image. Lately the word "his" has replaced "our" in Christian interpretations. Sumerian recorded history makes the claims of many gods, coming down from the skies to create and educate mankind for their benefit. There were many mysterious beings with motives both sacred and profane. There was only one way to explain this and that is to divide the beings into two distinctive categories. Monotheism gave us God and Satan. We give ourselves an excuse for many beings by pitching the idea of Angels on God's side and Demons on Satan's side.

So why have I taken such a long journey to explain why people have a hard time looking at a naked alien? To show you that perhaps we have already accepted the reality of these beings. We have Anthropomorphised these beings because it was unavoidable. We have a kinship with these beings because we are these beings. They created us and we are creating them. Full circle. The spiral continues as well, throughout infinity. This spiral is a mystical shape that is an absolute in both abstract mathematics and chaotic nature. It is seen everywhere. Shells , Ram's horns, milk in coffee, the face of a Sunflower, your fingerprints, our DNA, and the shape of the Milky Way are a few examples. Not to mention the spiral nature of Cyclones and the chaotic patterns seen in Crop circle formations.

Nothing is rational or simple when it comes to explaining the paranormal. Nothing is simple when trying to deal with human behavior and why a naked alien is considered to be offensive. Fort said, "One measures a circle beginning anywhere." This I interpret to mean that no matter what I write, no matter what opinions there might be on any subject that is unexplained, there is no exact answer.

So whether or not you believe that we have accepted these little beings as a reality and we feel the need to clothe them like children because of our sexual hang ups, or if you feel it is just conservatism at it's most idiotic you are probably right. The only problem is that they need to be nude so they can eat and breathe. But that is a totally different subject for a different article. In the meantime keep all of your erotic thoughts about erotic, alien genitalia at Ground Zero.
