My mother always taught me that there was something greater than what exists here. She liked to paint pictures of things that go beyond this reality and was considered psychic. In April 1954 she took me to the Nevada desert where I had my own unique experience, not with gray aliens, but with one who would guide the destiny that was shown to me at that time.

Today I decided to watch Stephen Spielberg's mini-series Taken. Sometimes you have to revisit something to appreciate its true essence. "Taken" is an epic saga that weaves together the stories of three families over multiple generations, and their crucial roles in the history of alien abductions. Set against the backdrop of actual historical events, "Taken" creates a powerfully emotional and evocative tale of mankind's encounters with extraterrestrials.

The story begins with Russell Keys, an American WWII pilot who is dying of a bullet wound while his plane spirals down into enemy territory. Blue lights on the horizon interrupt his plane's descent, and some time later he and his squadron find themselves mysteriously whole and healed, on safe ground with absolutely no memory of how they got there. Only years later, as each member of the squadron dies inexplicably, does Russell understand that his life has been forever altered by his first alien encounter. Haunted, he searches for answers to his unfolding memories, only to realize he is powerless to prevent his son and subsequent generations from also becoming abductees.

After the Roswell crash, we discover a missing alien who wander to the farm of Sally Clarke a lonely woman who unexpectedly finds love in the arms of a stranger, as the alien takes human form. Despite Sally's conviction that she has interacted with something not of this world, the other members of the Clarke family are unconvinced, even after she bears a son, Jacob, who manifests remarkable intuitive powers. Skepticism eventually evolves into obsessive belief, but too late to save the family from being pulled deeper into the secret designs of both the government and the extraterrestrial presence.

When the 1947 crash of a UFO near Roswell, N.M., occurs a few years after Russell's first encounter, U.S. military man Owen Crawford leverages his knowledge to become a major player in the subsequent cover-up and secret government investigation of the E.T. presence. This begins a decades-long effort by the Crawford family to use the government's investigations to secure their own powerful legacy, and to stop anyone who gets in their way. Finally, shortly after the Roswell crash, a chance encounter with a wounded man nearby sets off its own strange chain of events.

The grand scale of these three families' tale, as told through the voice of Russell's 9-year-old great-granddaughter, Allie Keys, explores generations of extraterrestrial encounters. Allie is the end result of a bio-genetic experiment that began during WW II in Germany and ends in our time line with a 9 year old hybrid girl named Allie who is part human and part alien gray. As we reach present day, the decades of secrets unravel, and all three families must come together to unlock the awe-inspiring mysteries of being Taken. Allie is played by actress Dakota Fanning. Allie's voice-over messages throughout the film seemed profound especially now, as souls seek answers and work on their issues.

Quotes from Allie

The results of the 1947 Roswell UFO Crash have had global ramifications. UFOs have crashed in other parts of the world and yet no government has come forward with conclusive proof of interaction with an alien species.


Not only has Steven Spielberg taught us about aliens and UFOs, so has Roland Emmerich. In recent weeks I watched the sci-fi, action adventure film Independence Day again. It was written and directed by Roland Emmerich, who also created other films I connect with The Thirteenth Floor (reality as a simulation) and Stargate SG, Sacred Geometry
