The way he describes the incident, I definitely believe him, also the way he describes how the 'abduction' felt like, is pretty much the same as everyone else who has had this happen to them, in other words, he didnt try to embellish.

John Lennon using LSD goes a long way to explaining this.

Sounds like a dream to me.



If aliens are real, human-sized cockroaches are the last thing I wanna see...

This seems a more likely explanation that aliens invading Lennon's New York penthouse.


https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/art...66#what-is-LSD

Quote:
Lysergic acid diethylamide, commonly known as LSD, is an illegal drug that alters the senses and cause hallucinations.

LSD is an illegal, semi-synthetic drug that combines natural and man-made substances. It is derived from ergot, a fungus that grows on certain grains, and a non-organic chemical called diethylamide.

It stimulates serotonin production in the cortex and deep structures of the brain, by activating serotonin receptors.

These receptors help visualize and interpret the real world. The additional serotonin allows more stimuli to be processed that usual. Normally, the brain filters out irrelevant stimuli, but with LSD this is not the case.

This overstimulation causes changes in thought, attention, perceptions, and emotions.

These alterations appear as hallucinations. Sensations seem real, but they are created by the mind.

The perceptions can involve one or more of the five senses. It can also cause blending of the senses, known as synesthesia. People report “hearing” colors and “seeing” sounds.


... it primarily affects the mind with visual distortions and sensory hallucinations and illusions.

The danger lies in the unpredictability of the “trip.” The potency of the drug is unreliable, and individuals react differently to it.

The user’s mindset, surroundings, stress level, expectations, thoughts, and mood at the time the drug is taken, strongly influence the effects of the drug.

Effects can include feelings of well-being, a perception of being outside one’s body, an enhanced insight towards creativity, problem-solving, discovering a purpose, and mystical experiences.

A “bad trip,” on the other hand, is like a living nightmare. It is similar to psychosis, and the person cannot escape from it. There may be extreme fear, paranoia, a separation from self, and the person may believe that they are dying or in hell.

It can also trigger panic attacks, psychotic episodes, disturbing anxiety, paranoia, pain, and a feeling of dying or going insane.

If you read the whole thing, you would have read that Lennon noted in all the times he had used LSD,he had never experienced anything like this.


He was right too, I also used LOTS of acid back in the 90s, it does NOT cause hallucinations this extreme.

Well, if I was an alien in the 1970's, for sure a visit on John Lennon would be on top of my list, and then maybe take in a show at CBGBs to see the Ramones while I was in the neighborhood. But Lennon in 1974 was also at the pinnacle (or the bottom, however you want to put it) of his alcohol and drug abuse period. What he calls his "lost weekend" lasting a couple years. Basically for 2 years he was in a state of constant delirium.

Here is a sketch he made of this UFO although in this article he doesn't mention a golden egg.

LSD is unpredictable and does not affect people the same --- and it doesn't always affect the same person the same way. It can also lay latent in your system and "wake up" weeks or even months after.

I'd put my money on hallucinogens and a spicy dinner before bed before I'd bet on alien bugmen visiting John's penthouse to gift him with golden eggs.
