You are the Royal four. Zan the king, Ava his queen, Vilandra his sister, Rath his counselor. You were created from the genetic material of your alien predecessors and human subjects. You were given human for so that you could live safely on this planet undetected until the time comes for your return. You have been given the granolith, a transport between this planet and antar. you have also been given communications technology which will allow you to access information from your true home. The chamber containing your hibernation pods and the granolith has been hidden away from human settlement. It can only be accessed by the four of you. You have been provided with a guardian who will protect you from danger and keep you hidden from your enemies both human and antarian.
A fixed sequence of events reoccurs from one abduction to another. The story consists of eight possible episodes - capture, examination, conference, tour of the ship, journey or otherworldly journey, theophany, return and aftermath. Few reports contain every possible episode, but when it appears it usually assumes the same relative position. That is examination precedes conference and conference precedes otherworldly journey. Fidelity to this sequence characterizes 87 of the 100 reports in the (this is a date) study.
This rigid order extended to events in the capture examindation and return episodes as well. In a sequence of escalating strangeness the subject sees a ufo in the sky or light streaming into the bedroom window then notices a stillness or silence, then begins to lose volition and mental control. As paralysis or uncharacteristic behaviors take over. Beings appear and escort the abductee to the craft often with a sense of floating off the ground. Entry into the ship is frequently sudden or often the occasion for a momentary lapse of consciousness.
The examination begins soon after entry as though the beings are impatient to carry it out. The captive lies on the table while a party of beings performs a manual examination by probing or touching the abductee from head to toe wtih either fingers or hand held intruments. An eye-like lens or ray device scans the captives body then the beings may attach tubes or wires and collect samples of blood, skin hair or other bodily material. A key element of the examination is inspection of the reproductive organs, a process that may include extraction of sperm from males or apparent removal of eggs from females by means of a needle inserted into the abdomen. Only reproductive and neurological systems seem of interest to the examiners. They insert or remove a tiny implant from the head or spine of abductees and a being may stare intently into their eyes. Performance tests or staged psychoanalyses presenting a summary. Screams may follow as an apparent way to probe human emotions and behaviors.
There are other pages, but we don't see what is on them.
In other episodes we get small clues as to what some of the other info is -
In the epi 'Departure' Max is telling the others how the Granolith works.
They are in the pod chamber and he has the crystal.
This is a key. When we insert it the Granolith will transport us, home. It will take 24 hours
for it to prepare itself. When it's ready, we have to be onboard or we don't go. The granolith is
capable of one mission. Only one. When we use it, it's gone. It's our only way home.
In the epi 'Ch-Ch-changes' (yes, this is season three, but worth mentioning I
thought), Max is attempting to 'heal' Liz when she is emitting green sparks.
He says - According to the book, I can use the healing stones to amplify my powers
