Night Terrors and Clones

In 1989, Steve and Dawn Hess headed out to the Mojave Desert, anticipating a quiet camping trip. But when they were kidnapped by what they believed to be a swarm of alien beings, the shock and pain of the experience changed their lives forever. Author Ron Felber joined Jimmy Church (email) to update us on the case and to welcome the Hesses for their first live interview. First hour guest, director, actor, and musician Vic Mignogna spoke about his webseries Star Trek Continues.

Night Terrors and Clones

Show Archive
Date: Friday - January 10, 2003
Host: George Noory
Guests: Open Lines, Linda Moulton Howe

In the first hour, investigative journalist Linda Moulton Howe presented her second report into the Raelian cloning controversy. She included excerpts from her interview with Clonaid's CEO and analytical chemist, Brigitte Boisselier who continued to insist that they would be providing definitive DNA proof of the cloned child. Linda also probed Clonaid's financial affairs and motivations. Bioethicist Arthur Caplan told Linda that he suspected the Raelians may be using the controversy to bring attention to their cult. A full report of this story is available on Linda's website.

"Night Terrors" was the suggested topic during Open Lines, which provided a chilling mixture of dark tales. The ghostly apparition of a deceased drag queen, a red face that appeared over white snow on a TV screen, and a 7-ft. tall "skinwalker" that charged a group of campers were among the encounters described.

George also heard again from the caller he's dubbed the "Silhouette Lady," who described seeing a large shadow-like shape outlined on her wall while she was speaking to him on the radio. In a bizarrely unique exchange, George attempted to communicate to the "shadow being" through the caller.

Uber Nightmares

Beyond your garden variety nightmare, lie a breed of especially horrifying dream related experiences. Why, you could lose sleep just thinking about them! Here's a look at three such states:

Sleep Paralysis: Sometimes called the "Old Hag" this strange occurrence is not particularly rare, and can happen when the brain has been simultaneously aroused into a waking mode yet still not having shut off the atonia (paralysis) and hypnagogic imagery associated with REM. Often menacing, very real seeming entities are sensed being in the same room. A frightening experience, but made less so, if one is aware of the phenomenon.

Night Terrors: These oddly terrifying dreams are often accompanied with screaming or thrashing about. They generally occur during the first hour or two of slumber and are thought to spring from a deeper non-REM state of sleep, that is not usually aligned with dreams, making them somewhat of a mystery to science. More common in children, they often stop having them by the time they hit puberty. In the case of adults undergoing night terrors, they are usually associated with people who have a high level of stress in their lives.

SUNDS: Sudden Unexplained Nocturnal Death Syndrome is an extremely rare condition that has been reported mainly in Southeast Asia. Generally affecting young adult males, their deaths are the result of heart attacks that could be the result of an extreme reaction to the muscle atonia or breathing difficulties that occur during a sleep paralysis episode. Usually the victims are found lying on their backs, with a fixed expression of terror on their face and little evidence of struggle or movement.
