I find this very hard to believe for several reasons.
1) The probability that species from different planets would be gentically
compatible is almost zero. Consider, we share the vast majority of our DNA with
other mammals and yet cannot interbreed. How much more difficult for creatures
with which we share NO DNA.
2) If a race has the technology and molecular genetic knowledge to produce
hybrids between such unrelated organisms as ourselves and the "greys". Then
they would have no need for our DNA in the first place to correct sterility,
produce hybrids. Because the hybrid technology automatically involves DNA
replication, structural reorganization, cloning, etc that would allow for A
DIRECT CORRECTION of any genetic problem in the race itself. This is logically
3) Given the level of technology abailable, AND assuming that they still wanted
human samples for this purpose (however illogical that is) they would only need
to take a few samples. DNA replication, a simple process compared with alien
hybridization, woulkd alllow them to produce unlimited amounts of human DNA.
4) The idea that brain "secretions" associated with emotional states are being
collected is also absurd. First, the chances that our brain chemistry would be
applicable to theirs is again, almost nil. More importantly, again if they have
the biological technology to create alioen hybrids, then surely they can
chemically synthesize the organic molecules of these "secretions". After all we
do this all the time ourselves. There are countless
neurochemicals that we can synthesize. And how much cheaper than travelling to
another star system, abducting someone, implanting probes to collect
"secretions", and then retrieving the probes and traveling hoke. A simple
chemical sythesis plant is easier, cheaper, and more logical.
I don't know where you got these ideas, but it sounds like bad science fiction
to me. Your source needs to rethink some basic pioints of biology and
IF the greys exist and are visiting us they surely have other reasons.
