|The Various Kinds of Extraterrestrials by Richard Boylan, Ph.D.
“Race” distinguishes various extraterrestrials of decidedly different appearances. More research into exo-biology, (the science of extraterrestrial life’s physical structure and processes), will help us understand better how many races of intelligent species we are dealing. So would the declassifying of the Government’s already considerable covert research on extraterrestrial biology, (such as is going on at NASA’s Ames Research Center, Sunnyvale, CA, and at Los Alamos National Laboratories, NM). For convenience I shall use the term race to distinguish extraterrestrials of significantly different anatomical features.
The most common Extraterrestrial race encountered has a number of variants. These variations in size and details of appearance may represent origins on different planets. This race is popularly, and rather imprecisely, called the “Grays”. The “Grays” are stereotyped, by uninformed or careless writers, as: short, upright, two-legged beings, three-and-a-half feet tall, with grayish-white skin, large, hairless, fetal-shaped heads, with huge, all-black, sloping, almond-shaped eyes without pupils or eyelids, whose eyes wrap around partially towards the temple-area sides of the head, a narrow jaw tapering to almost a V, small nostril holes but no nose, a small, thin, lip-less, horizontal slit for a mouth, thin torsos with no ribs and no genitals evident, long, spindly, but surprisingly strong arms reaching to the knees, similarly long, very thin legs, and hands with three, long, non-tapering, joint-less fingers, which end in claws instead of fingernails, but no thumb.
To be sure, there is such a race of beings; or at least a race, of which this is one variant. However, there are also: five-foot tall “Grays”, seven-foot tall “Grays”, “Grays” with mushroom-white skin, “Grays” with brown skin, “Grays” with black skin, “Grays” whose large eyes have a thin nictating membrane which can extend across the eye, “Grays” with midnight-blue eyes, “Grays” with wispy fine small amounts of hair on their heads, “Grays” with four fingers, and “Grays” with three or four fingers and another finger positioned where the human thumb would be, and “Grays” whose fingers end with suction-cup-like tips.
There have also been extraterrestrials reported who have a large process of folds along the back of their heads, a series of deep creases or crevices along the top of the head, sloping down forward towards the front, and with a strongly-pronounced brow-ridge above the eyes.
Are these twelve different races; or variants based on evolving in different climactic zones on one planet? Does this represent racial variation within inhabited planets in one star system? Or are these variations which occur within one cluster of star systems? Or does the “Gray” genotype tend to appear in many different star systems, on some planets, along with other races, on other planets, within those same star systems? The truth is, we do not know. Or at least that information has not been released to the public. Thus, we are still at the stage of gathering information on the various different types of intelligent lifeforms visiting our planet.
Another source of variation even within what is apparently one race is clothing. Many experiencers report that their “Gray” visitors wore no clothes. Others have seen “Grays” wearing long robes and hoods over their heads. Others have seen crews where both versions of attire, as well as close-fitting jumpsuits, were in evidence. Yet Grays are not the only ones wearing robes.
Another race of Extraterrestrials is the 4-to-5 1/2-foot tall Being, with a somewhat large head (by comparison with the human head) but not as proportionally large as the “Grays”, and who has somewhat large (but smaller than the “Grays”) dark oval eyes, spindly frame and limbs, and a hand with three long, cartilaginous, bone-less fingers, which end with neither claw nor suction-cup, but rather “ordinary” fingertip shape, except that their fingers do not taper.
A more distinctive kind of extraterrestrial is the “Praying Mantis type” race. These Beings have long, narrow faces, with long, narrow, large eyes, sharply slanted upward and outward in an almost narrow-V position, given an almost insect-like appearance. This comparison is heightened by the Praying-Mantis types’ extremely thin, long torsos, long, extremely-thin arms which are usually crooked into a sharp bend at the mid-joint, with the hand and fingers/mitten sloping almost vertically downward from the “wrist”, and legs also bent at an almost right-angle at the mid-joint, creating a crouched pose. The overall effect is the characteristic “Praying Mantis” look. It should be noted that experiencers feel that this type is no insect, but rather an intelligent, gentle-spirited, but somewhat “hyper” and jerky-moving, human-like lifeform, both males and females.
Another race is the so-called “Reptilians”, or “Reptoids”, although I note again that there is no implication in these descriptors other than of intelligent, communicative persons. What distinguishes these “Reptilian” extraterrestrials is their skin, which has small, fine scales, rather than smooth, their face, which has larger-than- human yellowish-green eyes with a “starburst”-shaped pupil, the eyes often oval, and an almost snout-like blunt process in the area of the nose and mouth, giving this type an almost dragon-like humanoid appearance.
Another group of extraterrestrials for convenience, I call the “Jawas”, after their resemblance to the creatures in the film, Star Wars. This group is distinguished by their clothing. They wear hoods and robes, are generally short (three to four-and-a-half feet tall), and their faces are concealed by the shadows thrown by their hoods. Sometimes there is a much taller hooded and robed one on board the UFO, who often stands to the Experiencer’s left as s/he lies on the ET medical examining table. This Tall One appears to direct the procedures, and often is the one who telepathically communicates with the Experiencer. A few Experiencers have noted glowing eyes under the “Jawas’” hoods. Other Experiencers have reported that when they got a glimpse of the Being whose face was shadowed by the hood, it was a type of “Gray”. Still others saw neither glowing eyes nor “Grays” under the hoods, but rather never could distinguish the features in the shadows of the hoods. There are often mixed- race crews on the UFO’s. In such cases there could be “Jawas” or “Praying Mantis” types or “Reptoids” or “Grays”, joining in a coordinated effort in carrying out scientific or medical tasks.
A few Experiencers have noted robot-like figures, whose movements and “vibes” (or rather lack thereof) strongly suggest that these are robots sent remotely by the extraterrestrials to observe, reconnoiter, and possibly retrieve objects. However, I have not encountered any reports of robots actually interfacing with humans to accomplish communication, or to remove the human to their craft for scientific examination. The robot-like figures appear to be relegated to the more impersonal tasks of information-gathering and stealthy surveillance, without the risk to the extraterrestrials that they would otherwise run of possibly encountering hostile human responses.
My research has come up with a goodly number of reports of “Humanoids”, “Blondes”, or “Nordics”, extraterrestrials almost indistinguishable from humans. I have also encountered reports where the Experiencer believed that the extraterrestrial s/he was dealing with appeared to be a human. However, in every case, this turned out to be an extraterrestrially-imposed mental visualization in the mind of the experiencer, the so-called “screen memory”. Upon closer looking, the experiencer was able to see the actual nonhuman face of the extraterrestrial behind the mentally-imposed “human” mask. My favorite variation of this mental cloaking experience occurred to one experiencer who believed she was encountering a human “spaceman”. I invited the Experiencer to look closely and carefully at the face of the “human spaceman”. When she did so, she suddenly was startled. “Oh, my”, she said,” It’s not a human after all. It’s one of those Grays.” Other details made me suspect we were still not done. I suggested she study closely the face of her “Gray” visitor. Startled, she could see that it was a “Reptoid” who had previously cloaked himself mentally as a “Gray”.
Another extraterrestrial racial type described are the short, chubby “Dwarf” extraterrestrials, with round pudgy faces. They seem to be relegated to doing the menial chores during a contact.
Undoubtedly, many more races could be described. We as humans are challenged by intelligent life that looks so different from us, a challenge which can be disturbing. But it can also remind us that the Source of All is myriad in its expression of lifeforms, including intelligent lifeforms, across the vast Universe. Only the anthropocentric would be offended by the Supreme Source’s creation of intelligence in other anatomical packages. And, indeed, ET messages tell us that we are that special variant of intelligent life: part-extraterrestrial intelligent lifeform, part-Earth primate.
