The so-called "Mythology" of The X-Files centered on alien abductions, colonization and genetic experimentation.

A Deep Dive on The X-Files: I Want to Believe, part 1

If you asked most people what The X-Files was about, they'd probably say something about aliens and conspiracies and monsters of the week. If you asked me, I'd tell you The X-Files was about Acid, Abuse and Ancient Astronauts.
