themote: I'm still wondering what you think is kept secret
Me: i guess even NASA hoped for that
oh well i guess i did have a close encounter
but you wont believe me
you think i was just hallucinating from something bad
in was 1976
yes, known as YOUR bicentennial
themote: all I require is proof, just as any scientist does
witness accounts are unreliable and subjective
Me: that is why i think that but you know i dont care really why should i
ok i could and do use the 1,000 and one method of counting
i mean...i dont care if you believe me or not
why would i lie to you
themote: not a problem
Me: missing time even
themote: I believe you think you had an experience, no problem there
drunks miss time, still not proof
Me: like the day the earth stood still but hey ...how can i quantify and qualify this teenage experience
i was looking at the sky
walking to a babysitting job
themote: what you believe is up to you, it just isn't proof of anything
Me: looking up from the sky
from the park
and i noticed 2 stars brighter than the rest that looked like headlights
and they got bigger
and then there was this huge form over my head over the park
it was black on black but i could make out the outline
the lights went around the ship
the magnetics made me feel like my brains were being sucked up into my head
that doesnt make sense
my brains were coming out the top of my head
and then i looked away and ran the heck out of there
and as i looked back into the sky behind me i saw an red explosion
i then felt like there was a wierd "the day the earth stood still feeling" or missing time, things were just coming back slowly to life in the dark and i didnt tell anyone except my old bj
he said i should have gone with them
not joking, serious!
themote: it is a very nice story
Me: yes but it isnt just a story to me
how can i prove that?
i dont know...
themote: sadly though, nothing to base a scientific explanation on
Me: just lets say, there is a lot more "out there" than what we can imagine
themote: you can't prove it, that's why it is useless from a scientific standpoint
Me: you want pudding?
themote: doesn't mean it didn't happen
just means it has no science value
Me: well...that was probably once in a blue moon occurence
themote: I've seen pink and blue elephants
Me: funny thing is i didnt feel that calm it was frightening
themote: the science behind it was muchotequila
i agree i was only sweet 16 or so
i mean i wast an imbiber
themote: no, me
i wonder if it was an EMP hallucination
there are those swamp gas theories of use texans
themote: swamp gas isn't a theory
methane clouds are fact
Me: it was your theory?
themote: no, my elephants were caused by a quart of tequila, that's a FACT
Me: really, with the mescalito?
i read don juan
well i can see that
themote: methane clouds are common in some places and have been the source of many experiences
Me: really? like RADON gas?
themote: radon is an inert gas, it doesn't burn
the ships had no noise...but it could be a prebirth experience?
one ship i meant
i guess i could go under hypno
the canadians were saying the earth releases, from time to time, electromagnetic energy bursts; is this true?
themote: the human mind has nearly unlimited potential to try and make sense of things we do not understand
Me: hey if i could figure out there magnetics and we could go to orion (really) well then, i guess my hallucination not a bad thing
themote: yea, it's called "lightning"
Me: maybe...? i am irish
themote: many forms of EM on the planet
themote: the aurora
yes...i have heard
themote: surely you've seen the auroras
causes by the interaction of the solar wind and the upper atmosphere
Me: i saw in wawa when hale bop and the asteroid potatoe visitation, and then SW coming thru that doorwa
i felt ohmaybe i shouldnt be here
i guess thats why i have agoraphobia now
themote: could be
Me: hey it could be simply i was cut off of oxygen at birth ..there that explains it
themote: Occam's Razor
Me: lets move on...and upwards!
themote: 2 days 16 hours 59 minutes
Me: ok we need a NASA widget
lauch with the guy saying "T minus 2 days>>>etc
themote: T minus 37 Hours 40 Minutes 39 Seconds
remember there are built-in holds
Me: i love the NASA culture
it is so...part of who i am...in some way...
you should see the offical countdown clock there
eND OF jANE'S DISCUSSION RE close encounter (not sure of the third kind as...I WAS MISSING TIME after all)...:)
