Greys are is a
physically weak but highly intelligent lifeforms
. They are as vulnerable and susceptible to injury as h
umans are, (
if not more so)
, but their natural psionic abilities make their battle formations, like their society as a whole, incredibly effective.
The Greys are relatively easy to keep alive and contained in containment
due to their small size and minimal needs low deviation from current life on Earth
. Removed this part because little in this CT suggests similarity to “current life on Earth”.
Their small diminutive
bodies require very little nutrition sustenance?
, which can be easily provided through a series of injections directly into their blood stream. Their physiology seems to be
suited for our planet, though they prefer moist, warmer climates. They are also almost completely harmless and passive when unarmed and separated from their chain of command and This phrase appears a bit redundant; being separated from fellow Greys also means being separated from the chain of command
fellow Greys. Hence ”As such” or “As a result”?
, they are not violent or dangerous captives, facilitating and
do not require extremely close examination or , and requiring little
advanced containment equipment.
The Grey’s large eyes allow it to see well in the dark, but strangely, light reflects off their opaque corneas instead of their retinas like in nocturnal terrestrial life. they do not reflect light like nocturnal life on Earth
. Changed to be more specific and match the AWD model.
Its sense of
hearing is virtually The hearing sense is nonexistent if it doesn’t have hearing organs
nonexistent; it can only feel loud sounds by their vibrations
since it lacks appropriate
hearing mechanisms organs
. This creature is unable to does not If a creature can make sounds, communication is possible. Changed to say that Greys don’t communicate via sound
communicate by sound; we have recorded their sporadic screeching noises, but they seem to be of little consequence and can only make a screeching noise
Aliens have has
an extremely developed brain resulting that results
in the its characteristically oddly
cranium, and w
e are now able to confirm that Greys communicate through a basic form of telepathy. Without advanced psionic amplification equipment this is limited, much like oral communication, in terms of range and potency. Standard Grey communication seems to
involves communicating in the exchange of discrete
concepts and ideas with to
each other., hH
the speed of indirect telepathic
communication and not needing to have line of sight
provides a quasi–hive mind setup network?, with each being acting where each Grey acts
as a node within its group and passing and transmits
information down the line to the next Grey
. On a more sinister disconcerting?
note, personnel working near in the vicinity of?
captive Greys have reported that on occasions, they would feel an occasional
to assist the captive. While there have been no incidents so far, our researchers theorize that perhaps with training or external aids, these creatures might be able to forcibly exert mental?
control other beings. Do Aliens need psi-amps to use psi? If not, remove the “or external aids” part.
A study of these Alien creatures shows that they are startlingly unadapted to living Maybe: “startlingly ill-adapted to life"
. They are unable to digest have difficulty digesting the most
simple liquid foods, much less ingesting
solid foods, and there are no signs of a means by which they pass out either designated
liquid or solid waste excretion systems
, nor any signs of vestigial
reproductive organs. The Greys are effectively unable to survive unsupported in the wilderness. Had our scientist not come up with the idea of using Without
IV drips and dialysis machines, we would not have been capable of keeping not be able to keep
them alive for extended periods of time
. All of this points to the fact suggests
that either the Greys are a species of disposable drones or one whose survival that
is entirely dependent on technology in order to both and machinery to
ingest nutrients, even to the extend of using technology to continue and perpetuate
their race by through
cloning. Given the evidence of Greys’
highly organized hierarchy, as well as the fact that attempted telepathic communication with the Greys regarding their lifecycle has thus far resulted in mental images of cold, sterile machines, reinforce our belief that it is the latter Deleted to skirt psi consistency issues we believe that the Grey society is too intricate for mere drones, and we speculate that the limited functionality of Grey physiology may be a result of genetic tampering
Due to its the Greys’
telepathic ability, its society indeed behaves as an amazingly efficient hive mentality, only with much like a hive with amazing efficiency but
a total lack of emotion. This efficiency is accentuated by their profound sense of logic; individual Grey call signs designations
seem to be based on a binary sequence. As an example of their hierarchy and co-ordination hierarchical coordination
, when confronted by a
potential threats, or a fellow endangered Grey, an
will change behaviors
rapidly to preserve itself or defend fellow Greys
, either using its psionic abilities to mentally attack against
or adopting a unified
“fight or flight” response in conjunction with other Greys, with the original individual acting as where one individual assumes the role of
a temporary controller or commander. Hence, these creatures are able to form, dissolve,
and adapt command chains instantly. We still, however, believe there is group of permanent high-ranking Greys operating somewhere from bases here on Earth
As part of the Alien threat, Greys usually?
function as scouts and observers due to their intelligence, large capacity for science and technology, good efficient?
communication network, and incredible ocular acuity. The similarities between the appearance of this life form and Greys to
the descriptions given by victims of Alien abductions leads us to believe that the race in question is Greys are
highly active in human experiments and experimental
research into our the human
genetic structure, and that
we should be wary of any the results of their
progress they might have made in into inductive
and cloning technology technologies
Operating mainly primarily? on lightly armed on smaller
research vessels, they are usually well-armed and
should be considered a reasonable threat to any operation.
“… unfortunately, Sgt. Thompson’s role in the assault mission was to provide a base of fire for troops advancing on a UFO crash site. The abandonment of his position led to a lack of suppression support which that
resulted in the above average casualties mentioned previously?
. Thompson still refuses to discuss the incident, and given his alarming CAT-scan results from the medical team, he has been removed from active field duty.”- e
