Examination of alien abduction discourse has the potential to inform our understanding of symbolic practices. This essay uses 130 narratives of individuals who claim to have had contact with extraterrestrial beings to argue that alien abduction discourse is a living myth. This myth-the Myth of Communion-is rhetorically significant because it illustrates the power of narrative while also reealing certain characteristics about our cultural condition.
