As children of the early space age, aliens populate quite e bit of lore, both harmless and deeply malignant. I went through the “aliens among us” phase and still have family that think that way. On a certain psychological level it’s deeply satisfying, since it “explains” everything evil and wrong as coming from an outside source, thus “we” whoever we are, aren’t to blame. It’s basically an infantile way of dealing with the complexities and difficulties of life. The conspiracist is a supreme example of blame shifting and the myth of innocence. It’s also the highest order of the victim mentality. Fascinating, as Spock would say.

I assure you there are no aliens among us. You can take my word for it. You are getting sleepy. Aliens have no way to get here from Arcturus. Your eyelids are getting heavy. You can trust me, No aliens are here. When I snap my fingers you will be asleep but able to hear my voice. No aliens. (snap) No aliens. There are no aliens. No aliens. When I count from 5 to one you will awake remembering none of this conversation. You will feel calm and sure that aliens do not exist. 5…4…3…2…1
