They are seeking to maintain a genetic structure which allows them to move between dimensions and shape-shift between a human and reptilian appearance. Could there conceivably be a silicon-based life, in place of our own carbon-based one, on a hot planet like Mercury.
A rather similar factor operates against the idea of having a manlike creature get all his energy from sunlight, plant style. What can this thing do. Women may not have retained all power and authority in such societies See dream below this one.
The response may not be a successful one; you may not duck quickly enough to avoid the rock—but it is the attempt that counts. That is, it can become aware, somehow, of some alteration in its environment, and will then produce an alteration in itself that will allow it to continue to live as comfortably as possible.
Azazel's massacre of the CIA agents, Shaw's death and Charles getting shot also had either minimal blood or none at all. Hank McCoy's transformation sequence, the process was depicted as rather painful and horrific, bones, muscles and skin shifting and stretching while fur aggressively sprouted along his body.

Can I help you. Evidently this abductee met a member of the Heirarchy like I did in my dream, though possibly in person, not a dream. It takes as much energy actually more must be supplied, since no reaction is completely efiicient to break up a molecule into its elements as is released by forming it from these elements, and any ecological system must have a long-term energy base.
