High and Mighty Aliens

Slender Man Alien
When we think of aliens we think of diminutive guys—little green (or grey) men. But there are equally as many sightings of tall aliens. Tall as in scarily tall, with equally scary agendas.

The Tall Whites

Tall White Aliens
The name says it all; these beings have to duck when passing through an average sized door here on Earth. Where there are UFO sightings there are often reports of Tall White beings—pale, humanoid, and often long-haired, rather like angels who have jettisoned their wings.

Airman First Class Charles Hall was Range Weather Observer for several gunnery ranges between 1965 and 1967. In a trilogy of books titled “Millennial Hospitality” he recalls being observed by Tall White beings on many occasions as he went about his duties tracking weather balloons. His superiors apparently knew all about the presence of the aliens, and made a treaty whereby advanced scientific knowledge was exchanged.

According to Hall, “They had the usual thin frail body build, chalk white skin, large blue eyes, and nearly transparent platinum blonde hair. Like all of the tall whites, their eyes were perhaps twice the size of human eyes and they stretched noticeably further around the sides of their heads than human eyes do.”

Men In Black

Men In Black Alien
There is more to the MIB phenomenon then the trilogy of movies starring Will Smith! Of course, those scripts were based on actual Men In Black reports.

Since the late Forties and the infamous Roswell UFO crash, reports of dark-suited individuals visiting UFO witnesses have entered into popular culture. Often, they would arrive in twos, sometimes driving a very official looking black sedan, and knock on a witness’s door. MIBs are described as very serious, very tall, and wearing dark glasses. Extremely no-nonsense in tone, they warn the witness to keep quiet about his or her sighting. While threats are rarely given, the MIBs presence alone is often enough to silence witnesses.

Theories suggest that these men are from a covert government group who do not want the truth about the extraterrestrial presence on Earth to be disseminated. Other theories suggest that the Men In Black are in fact aliens themselves. There have been accounts of these odd individuals coming to a witness’s house, sitting down, and then asking to be told about very mundane objects, such as candle holders or radios– as though they have never seen these things before.

The Slender Man

The Slender Man Alien
In recent years, accounts of the Slender Man have grown. Though often ascribed to an internet hoax, sightings of this tall, faceless being are on the increase. Over 8 feet tall, the Slender Man is said to be clothed in a dark suit and has a face that is white and featureless. Its raison d’être seems to be stalking and abducting children.

Only last month, in December, 2014, a resident of Cannock Chase in Staffordshire, UK, reported a horrifying visitation: I was awoken just before 2am by an odd scratching noise in my bedroom. ‘As I tried to get out of bed and investigate further, the shadow began to stretch towards the ceiling. It was at that point I found myself faced with the most disgusting and horrific creature imaginable. ‘It was about eight feet tall and had a white face with razor-sharp fangs.’

Accounts of lofty extraterrestrials do not end there. It  has been speculated that the man-beast of the Pacific Northwest, Bigfoot, is a visiting alien creature. Bigfoot is an 8-9 foot creature covered in black hair, and an uncanny ability to vanish from view—a trait that have led some investigators to suggest that it is inter-dimensional, popping in and out of our world at will.

People who have claimed to have been abducted by aliens have sometimes reported the presence of tall humanoid beings on board alien craft. Believed to be human-alien hybrids, these beings are over 6 foot in height, slim, and largely expressionless. Much speculation has surfaced over recently years that the Men In Black (and even the Slender Men) are in fact alien-human hybrids, created to infiltrate our world.

Bigfoot – Big Deal or Big Hoax?

Yet another Bigfoot video purporting to have captured the elusive man-beast has surfaced again (see below). But is it the real thing? A critical mind will tell you that this is a man in a shaggy black suit stomping through the snow. Videos of Sasquatch have never suitably convinced me (more’s the pity) unless, of course, were talking about the infamous Patterson Bigfoot footage, which somehow looks too sinuous and muscled to be a suit. Native Americans have plenty of tales of Algonquin-speaking giant men who have roamed the deep forests since the beginning of time. So, could there be true to this legend?

To look at this mystery scientifically naturally brings one to thoughts about our own origins. Bigfoot could be a remnant of our own ancestry. Many Bigfoot researchers have postulated that the creature is an offshoot of Gigantopithecus – an extinct hominid species that stood almost 9 feet tall.

Bigfoot Research; Bigfoot Video

Let’s say this creature exists. The next step is to capture and study one. But do we have the right to capture an entity that could be related to humans? There are plenty of self-styled Bigfoot hunters roaming the Pacific North West of America toting elephant guns and hoping to bag the catch of the century. Is it ethical? Is it right?

But, most importantly, is it real?
