An Unsolicited Alien Anal Probe Into A Resuscitated Sasquatch!
I remember watching a documentary that featured a hospital operating room with electronic reader boards strategically placed on the top of the machines. The messages are randomly altered and impossible for anyone to read them unless they are hovering near the ceiling.
They are there to test the authenticity of the near death testimonials that occur from time to time. The theory is that if the proclaimer can accurately repeat the nonsensical message then their spirit may have actually vacated their body. The patient's descriptive vision of the hospital technicians that were trying to revive their dead body would have some credibility. So far not a single person has passed the test.
It's discouraging for some to even contemplate questioning the validity of an afterlife experience.
I believe that the reason everyone recites a nearly identical vision during their death is not that complicated.
The ubiquitous tunnel of light (heaven) or dark (hell) is cemented in our collective conscious.
For centuries now Western Culture has had a well scripted roadmap of the stairway to heaven and the 9 levels circling hell (thanks Dante).
I find it interesting that shared experiences regarding the paranormal are nearly identical.
People who have been kidnapped by Aliens, sighted a Sasquatch or hovered above their corpse, nearly always recall, verbatim, ridiculously similar details of the event.
For the record I have chosen not to believe most of them.
The near death experience is naturally accompanied by a HUGE explosion of internal pain killers released by the body.
This hallucigenic trip to Endorphia is predestined.
A momentous trip of that magnitude will naturally leave the recipient overwhelmed by images and memories from deep within their subconscious.
It is the equivalent of your brain (computer) saving all of your data before it shuts down. Quite ingenious actually.
This phenomenon actually lends more credence to the idea of a genetic reboot than a shared urban myth about travelling through a heavenly wormhole.
I have less empathy for those poor, attention-starved, recipients of nocturnal, anal probing by Aliens.
I once heard a brilliant observation regarding this scenario.
A comedian unequivecably disqualified the entire delusion with the following observation.
He argues that,
" if Extraterrestiral Alien Life had the technology to travel millions of light years to reach Earth, WHY, if they are that intelligent, would they waste their time looking up people's asses??? Even more incredible, WHY would they ever do it twice???"
Sasquatch, Yehti whatever you want to call them, the mysterious Ape-Man Creature, has been acknowledged throughout history by nearly every culture. Could a large Ape/Hominid or hybrid really exist? I would be very excited to see proof..which unfortunately would require a corpse that could be examined.
I've watched countless hours of documentaries on the subject and as a former TV producer I am well aware of the plethora of visual and audio trickery available to the presenters. As an avid student of paleo-anthropological inquiry I am fascinated by the prospect of another pseudo hominid or gigantic occidental ape hiding out from it's main competitor (us) in the uninhabited, unwanted areas of our planet.
I am doubtful however.
I will leave you with this testimony that highlights the mystical powers of persuasion. While I attended a university class on Anthropology a visiting (credible) Zoologist from Alaska had a remarkable (inconclusive) tale to tell regarding the Sasquatch.
While celebrating a birthday one evening out on the dock the Zoologist and his guests were surrounded by the seasonally expected sounds of springtime in the Alaskan bush. The sun had just retired but the cacaphony of birds and wildlife was overwhelming. Suddenly it was dead quiet. The man recalled how his Huskys, two huge dogs, came wimpering down to the end of the dock with tails between their legs.
Then a large, upright, silhouette passed by the windows of their house just up the hill.
It wasn't a bear, the dogs were accustomed to bears and bears can't walk that far on their hind legs.
Through the trees they could clearly see that a very human-like figure was blocking the light from the windows which were seven feet off of the ground! After a few minutes... the sounds of the forest slowly returned... and the dogs relaxed but stayed right under their feet.
OOOOH! I loved that story and still I remember shivers running up and down my spine while I was listening. This witness was very sincere and totally convinced that he had seen something out of the ordinary.
My guess is that we homo escapeons just need the paranormal experience to make our lives more interesting and keep the hope alive that there is more to this Life (and the next?) than what we can see, hear, smell, touch and taste.
