The classification and identification of observed alien beings is one of the greatest challenges facing ufology today. If we accept that indeed there are intelligently guided extraterrestrial craft operating in our atmosphere, then the next logical questi on must be who and what, are they? In a previously published article, (Classifications of Observed UFO Occupants) I discussed two primary species of UFO occupants. These are A) Homo Sapiens, and B) Cetaceans.

The first group is comprised of seven human subgroups, both of terrestrial and non-terrestrial origins. The latter group of cetaceans, known as the "Greys," represent the non-human element and are the topic of this article. The information from which these conclusions have been drawn was obtained from the following sources:

The main objective was to compare the observations of modern day abductees against those recorded in ancient history. If the phenomena were genuine and long-term, then correlations between the two should be found, as indeed they were. The following is a brief summary of those beings who were identified.

The main or lead group of alien beings, is advanced humans of non-terrestrial origin. They are in most respects nearly identical to Earth-born Homo Sapiens. They are from three distinct colony zones, Sirius, Orion, Pleiades. They came to the Earth sometime before 50,000 BC for mining and colonization purposes. Note: an excellent source of related information are the Earth Chronicles, by Zechariah Sitchin. These advanced humans modified an existing, Earth-born, pre-human by merging their genes with it. The resultant hybrid is what we now call modern man -- us. The remaining subgroups of humans observed on-board UFOs are all Earth-born humans who were taken from the Earth, both in ancient and modern times. References to each of these types can be found in our historical literature, described in various ways. In very ancient times they were called Gods. Some of the later names are angels, devas, fairies, elves, demons, incubus and succubus, etc. It is interesting to note that as mankind developed, these beings have continued to be involved in one way or another, in human affairs.

In modern times we no longer refer to these beings in spiritual terms. We call them ETs or aliens, and have become aware of both their physical nature, and their high state of technological advancement. Whether our various social and religious organizations can survive the growing pains of finally leaving our state of intellectual pre-puberty, remains to be seen.

Now let us examine the only non-human UFO contingent, the Greys. Based on eyewitness testimony, the following physical profile can be composed. Height is 5 feet 5 inches; overall shape is humanoid. Skin coloration is dark gray and non-porous. The head is proportionally large and triangular-shaped in the vertical plane. The back skull area is large and rounded. The eyes are large and slanted upwards toward the back. Greys are often mistaken for two human subgroups, known as workers and technicians. These are smaller and as stated, are of human descent.

Based on all the evidence thus far seen, we might hypothesize as follows. The Greys descended from cetaceans. What are cetaceans? On Earth they comprise the species we call whales and dolphins. We have already seen that human species can be found elsewhere. If the same genetic code for humans exists on other worlds, then it is not unreasonable to propose that other genetic codes previously thought to be only Earth-indigenous, exist out there as well. This raises a very interesting question -- Why is the same basic genetic code found on all these different worlds? The answer may well be that an unknown intelligence deliberately seeded the various planets with the same basic genetic blueprints.

The Earth then is merely one in a series of duplicate genetic environments. Who were these seeders and what was their purpose? Interesting questions, indeed. Perhaps in a future article it can be discussed in greater detail. Now let us get back to our central issue, the Greys. What are the reasons for supposing that they are a dolphin-based life form? The answer to this is found in the similarities of both their physical and behavioral aspects.

First let us examine the physical characteristics. The skin of a Grey is very similar to that of dolphins, both in texture and in some cases, coloration. If you have an abductee look at a dark gray porpoise, the response is in the affirmative. On Earth, the dolphins evolved legs and arms to function on land but later returned to the oceans. X-rays clearly show the residual appendages in modern day dolphins. It is possible that the Greys evolved just as Earth dolphins but did not return to the oceans, and continued to develop as a land-based mammal. Next is the skull shape. The Greys have a large rounded rear area in the upper front and back of their skulls. An examination of the dolphin skull shows the same large, rounded front and rear areas. The eyes of Greys are described as large and black with what appears to be a protective shielding covering the eye. Many Earth aquatic animals have developed protective outer-eye shields for underwater use. It is possible that this is a left-over attribute from the Greys' ocean origins. Another factor is the dark coloration of this eye shield. It suggests an eye structure suited for a reduced light environment. In the oceans, this is natural for a creature living underwater where the sunlight does not penetrate. On Earth, the dolphins developed the sonar ability as their primary navigational ability and do not rely on sight while underwater.

Now we will look at the behavioral similarities. Earths' dolphins use sonar to navigate and stun both prey and enemies. The stun affect is of particular interest to us. Dolphins can emit a very powerful and focused ultrasonic burst from the front portion of their skulls. They use this to stun prey and to stun enemies such as sharks and barracuda. I once saw a film of a group of dolphins using this ability on a very large barracuda. The barracuda was swimming towards a group of baby dolphins. Four large adult dolphins turned so that there heads were directly in line with the barracuda and emitted a sustained ultrasonic burst. The effect on the barracuda was astounding. It froze, completely paralyzed in the water. Even the gills had stopped moving. The dolpins stared at it for about thirty seconds, during which time the barracuda remained totally immobilized. As soon as they turned their heads away, the ultrasonic beam was no longer focused on the barracuda and it fled at a very high speed. Obviously this beam was tightly focused and required the dolphins' heads to be pointed directly at the target. The strength of the beam could be changed also. When hunting it could be directed at small fish and amplified to lethal levels, causing instant death. Some believe that this is also used when dolphins kill sharks, by ramming them. Autopsies show the sharks' internal organs have been literally shattered.

The beam can also be controlled to produce a stun effect as in the case of the barracuda. The result was physical paralysis and disorientation. I believe that this is the very same technique used by the Greys in abductions. The similarities are overwhelming. Every abductee says that when they are abducted they are paralyzed and become mentally disoriented. This is usually in the presence of a Grey. The most striking thing they recall is what is called the "Stare." This is when the Grey looks directly at an abductee. The large dark eyes capture the abductee's attention immediately. They then report being unable to move, and a feeling of great mental disorientation. On some rare occasions, abductees report a lessening of these effects when the Grey looked a way from them. This indicates that the intensity of the effect was directly proportional to the direction or focus of the front portion of the Greys' head.

I believe that Greys possess the same sonar abilities as all dolphins and that these abilities are used to stun an abductee during the abduction. The "Stare" as abductees call it, comes from the positioning of the Greys' frontal skull area, the projection area, to achieve maximum beam concentration on the abductee. When the Grey looks away, the beam would naturally become less focused and the effect would diminish, just as it does.

The description of a Greys' head is large, triangular and rounded in front and back. This suggests a large and rounded rear and frontal brain lobe structure. This is identical to the physical structure of cetaceans. It is the main difference between cetacean and human brains. This large rounding is thought to be an adaptation of the cetacean brain to handle the enormous data flow of their echo-location and sound-based communications faculties. It should also be noted that on the rare occasions that abductees hear verbal sounds from Greys, it is described as high-pitched, sometimes chattering or staccato clicks or beeps. These are all similar to the air vocalizations of dolphins.

The Greys are reportedly engaged in human/grey hybrid experiments. This is reportedly to combine the genetic material of both species into a hybrid species. Is this possible? Japan and several other countries are working even now on inter-species hybridizations. If I am correct that the Greys are of dolphin descent, then the possibility of successful hybridization becomes much greater. Some believe that on Earth, man shared a common genetic ancestor with the dolphin. Up to a certain point in development, human and dolphin fetuses are nearly identical. In the not too distant future it will be possible to produce a hybrid human/dolphin species. I contend that the Greys have already beaten us to it.

Finally I would like to point out that dolphins have been associated with the "Gods" a.k.a. the aliens, from earliest recorded times. Certain mythologies hold that some of the Gods came from a world of water. It is now thought by some that these beings genetically altered the existing prehumans on Earth. It is certain that the Greys would have had a hand in this. One of the greatest of ancient worship sites is the temple of Delphi. This was originally the temple of the sea Goddess. The word Delphos means both dolphin and womb. I believe it is time we stopped calling them Greys and used the name our ancestors called them. They knew of the Gods who came from the water world in the heavens long ago. They called them Delphim.

I hope that you have found this enlightening and thought provoking. For those out there who consider humans the only intelligent species on the planet, let me illustrate the power of the cetacean brain. The Bible contains just over a million and a half bits of information. The song sung by humpbacked whales contains over fifteen million bits of information. Each year it changes just slightly and every whale on the planet knows what those changes are. Now ask yourself this. Could you remember the Bible word for word? Could you remember fifteen of them? Think about it. If our Bible contains our basic history, social and religious philosophies, what does something fifteen times larger contain?

It is my deepest hope that this article will allow you to open new perceptions of the events now taking place on this planet. To see both the Greys and yourself, in a new way. I think in time we will come to find that what's down here, is exactly what's out there. That there are humans and dolphins cooperating out there, I am certain. Perhaps we should stop and ponder our roles as the caretakers of this planet. Our own cetacean population has been hunted by man to the very edge of extinction. It is someth ing that we all must take shame in. Recently, efforts have been made by the civilized nations to preserve the great whales and dolphins. Can we live peacefully on this planet with another intelligent species? I truly hope so. I would hate for another more advanced species to treat us as we've treated the whales.

Many hope for contact with these beings. If we cannot get along with an indigenous intelligent species, how can we expect to get along with one of extraterrestrial origins. Peoples are judged by their actions. If we demonstrate our goodwill toward our fellow inhabitants of this world, perhaps those not of this world will be sent a message - that we are civilized after all.
