Graham Hancock's Supernatural gave me a different perspective on the UFO phenomena. I cannot say his hypothesis is absolutely correct but it makes sense in some aspects.
Ancient cave art, Shamanic initiation experiences, historical Fairy & Elf stories, hallucinogenic experiences, religious ecstatic experiences, and UFO experiences have a number of features that all align fairly well together (onset paralysis, experiences of entities, experiences of lights, animism, death/rebirth, feelings of being used for reproduction, on-going relationships with entities, bearing children in the 'other' world, etc). So basically seems to be a common feature of the brain to have such experiences (if you imagine your 'otherness' detector in your brain is over stimulated you feel presences, our dreaming brain can easily create experiences of whole worlds, etc).
Don't go by the Fairy stories or UFO reports you think you know, you have to pull from a broader set of stories, reports and testimony.
