i found this depressing

"There is also evidence that dream villains and monsters evolve over time, in response to popular culture. Michael Schredl looked at several nightmare studies from the twentieth century, and found that dreams of the bogeyman were common in the twenties; dreams of ghosts, devils, and witches reigned in the fifties and sixties; and those of movie villains predominated in the nineties." –Margaret Talbot, this week’s New Yorker

Same thing is true of Angels and Aliens; whereas ancient folks saw Angels and Faeires, today's modern savage sees Lil' Green Men.
