Does the UFO Abduction Phenomenon Fulfill Revelation 13?

In 2 Thessalonians 2, Paul says that before the world can end, something he calls "The Lawless One" must make an appearance on Earth. Paul's exact words:

1 We ask you, brothers, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our assembling with him,
2 not to be shaken out of your minds suddenly, or to be alarmed either by a "spirit," or by an oral statement, or by a letter allegedly from us to the effect that the day of the Lord is at hand.
3 Let no one deceive you in any way. For unless the apostasy comes first and the lawless one is revealed, the one doomed to perdition,
4 who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god and object of worship, so as to seat himself in the temple of God, claiming that he is a god[, then the world can not end] --
5 do you not recall that while I was still with you I told you these things?
6 And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his time. 2 Thessalonians 2:1-6.

The words in brackets were added by me, but the translators would agree that they complete the intended meaning of the sentence.

In a previous article in this blog (2/27/10, "Is It Possible That 'the End Is Near'?," I suggest that the other end-of-time indicators have been fulfilled...

(1) The re-establishment of Israel in 1948 = "the leafing of the fig tree," Matthew 24:30-33.

(2) The Pro-Choice Movement = "[women who SHOULD BE] pregnant" and "[mother who SHOULD BE] nursing" as to whom Jesus threatens "woe." Matthew 24:19.

(3) The U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing sodomy, and gay marriage laws = "being like Sodom in those days," Luke 17:28-30.

(4) The Israeli nuclear program, with nuclear missile silos in Judea = "the abominable destructive thing on holy ground," which should induce those in Judea to "flee to the mountains." Matthew 24:15-16.

(5) The feminization of the clergy and the emptying of churches worldwide = Paul's "apostasy," or "great falling away." 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3.

So, question: Is Paul's prediction of the coming of the "lawless one," frequently associated with the deeply bizaree predictions of Revelation 13, coming true?

I say yes.

For now, I'll just speculate about Revelation 13:1...

1 Then I saw a beast come out of the sea with ten horns and seven heads; on its horns were ten diadems, and on its heads blasphemous name (s). Revelation 13:1.

Beginning in 1961, thousands of people began to make seemingly absurd reports of abductions onto UFOs, physical examinations, and anal and frontal rapes by aliens abducting them. In 1987, author Whitley Strieber published his break-all-records bestseller, "Communion," describing his abduction phenomenon experiences.

In that book, Strieber confesses that he didn't name his book "Comminion" -- his abductors did!

Elsewhere in this blog, I think in the ghost photo articles, I suggest that ghosts and demons in our environment of the result of a process I call "tulpaization." Intense human concentration -- such as occurs in prayer, or when people are committing attention-capturing sins -- generates these things the Tibetan Buddhists call "tulpas." Tulpas are intended by God to be the vehicles of prayer to God and of angels answering prayers. So-called "orbs" are the basic form of those vehicles.

However, if the concentration was morally ambiguous, the "orb" comes as a morally-ambiguous "ghost," and if the concentration was evil in nature, a demon occupies the "orb," and it is perceived as a malevolent ghost, or demonic presence -- or "alien."

In my opinion, the Abduction Phenomenon "aliens" are just demons occupying tulpas generated by ambient mass-evil-thinking in our society, occurring during mass sinful self-indulgence in the course of mass use of illegal drugs and in the course of mass use of pornography.

A little bit of objective proof of my admittedly bizarre contention...

Here is mystic Rudolph Steiner's early 20th century bust of one of the presiding demons, Ahriman, which he saw in the ccourse of transcendental meditation...

And now compare that guy with Strieber's Abductor portrait, on the cover of his book...

Do you see those wrinkled corneas on Ahriman's eyes, in Steiner's bust? Strieber says that as his Abductor's eyes closed, the corneas wrinkled.

Question: How did Steiner, early in the 20th century, get it right?

In any event, let's see if we can connect the cover of Strieber's knock-down drag-out worldwide best seller "Communion" with Revelation 13:1...

1 Then I saw a beast come out of the sea...

Scripture speaks at two levels, the "plaintext," or "literal," level; and the "typological" or "symbolic" level.

PLAINTEXT MEANING: The ancients of Judaism and Chistianity believe that outer space was filled with water, probably to explain rain. Proof: Genesis 1:6, where a "dome" or "firmament," separates the waters below the earth from the waters above it; 2 Peter 3:5, where it is said that the Earth was created out of water, "in" or "between" the waters -- the water above the Earth, and the water under the Earth.

An ancient one would therefore have claimed that UFOs seeming to come "from space" had come "out of the [upper] sea."

TYPOLOGICAL MEANING: In Bible typology, sea water symbolizes the "sea of damnable souls." If the Abduction Phenomenon creatures are demonic tulpas generated by mass sin, then the Abduction Phenomenon being is a beast "come out of the sea" -- a tulpa out of the sin of sinners.

...with ten horns...

PLAINTEXT MEANING AND TYPOLOGICAL MEANING: "Ten" is the type, or symbol, meaning "very much."

"Horn" is the type, or symbol, meaning "power."

So, John is saying, here, that the Abduction Phenomenon would seems to have "much power."

Lo and behold, Abduction Phenomenon abductees uniformly agree that their captors had total power over them (although there are reports that prayer disables the Abduction Phenomenon beings).

...and seven heads;...

PLAINTEXT MEANING AND TYPOLOGICAL MEANING: "Seven" is the Biblical type, or symbol, meaning "perfected," "completed," "perfectly," "completely," or "completely everywhere."

When Striber's book was first published, all over the world bookstore racks looked like this...Do you get the idea? "Heads completely everywhere," right?

...on its horns were ten diadems, and on its heads blasphemous name (s).

PLAINTEXT MEANING: Every cover of Strieber's first book on the Abduction Phenomenon features the word "Communion" literally "on" each head.

Assuming that that thing on the cover is, indeed, a demon, and assuming that they called Striber's book "Communion" to infer that people's "Communion" out to be a kidnapping, raping demon, not the Eucharist at church, that would, indeed, make "Communion" on the demon's head a "blasphemous name" literally "on" its heads.

TYPOLOGICAL MEANING: "Ten diadems" or "crowns": "very much king" -- culturally dominating?
