It looks like the concept of alien abductions was created in modern times but, according to researchers in China, an ancient Chinese manuscript made available to the public in 2011 describes in detail a similar mysterious event that took place nearly 500 years ago.
The manuscript is written in 1528 and describes a mysterious ‘star’ which crossed the sky moving from the East to West. The strange bright object descended in the vicinity of a small village guarded by the nearby mountains.
One of the inhabitants of the village, intrigued by the mysterious ‘star’ that had landed, approached the object describing it as being disk-shaped and as big as a house, covered in brilliant colors. It was unlike anything he had ever seen in his lifetime. The man then fainted.
When he woke up he was in a cold a strange place that was illuminated by a mysterious red hue and even though he could still see the Sun, the moon and the stars there were no people near him, only mysterious creatures that had round faces and three eyes instead of two. The alien beings wore strange clothes and spoke a language he could not understand.
After he regained his consciousness he found himself back in his home, but he found out that time seemed to have passed quickly for him – he was actually missing for an entire year.
The person who wrote about this incredible story went to visit the Chinese villager. The author writes that after meeting the abductee, he saw a red scar on his chest, and swore that the account was authentic.
Experts from China’s Cultural Ministry have already verified the authenticity of the manuscript. So, what exactly happened to the this man? If the story is fictional, then why does it so closely resemble modern accounts of alien abductions?
Here’s another interesting story in which a Budhist Monk described a UFO encounter:
“At the end of the Great Prayer Meeting, I climbed the Da-luo Peak, where I paid reverence to the ‘wisdom lamps’ said to appear there.
“I saw nothing the first night but on the second, I saw a great ball of light flying from the Northern to the Central Peak, where it came down, splitting a short while later into over ten balls of different sizes.
“The same night, I saw on the Central Peak three balls of light flying up and down in the air and on the Northern Peak, four balls of light which varied in size.”
It is clear that the UFO phenomenon is not something new. From 10,000-year-old cave paintings depicting flying saucers, to a Chinese manuscript describing alien abduction, we see the evidence everywhere and it’s up to us to try to interpret it correctly.
