Memories Of A Young Ufologist
From some of my earliest memories as a child, I’ve always had a fascination with the paranormal and the strange. I remember in school as a young boy attending a book fair and while most of the kids were buying books on animals and such things, I was buying a book on the Loch Ness monster.
And ever since then I’ve been hooked on all things paranormal, such as Lake Monsters, ghosts, Bigfoot and in particularly UFOs. I was always interested in UFOs for various reasons, however one reason was it seem more plausible and more realistic to me as a point of interest.
Bigfoot was too far off in the Woodlands for me to go hunt for it, the same for the Lake monsters. My interest in ghosts and spirits became greater as I got older and learned more about it. The spiritual world actually fascinates me quite a bit these days. Nevertheless, UFOs have intrigued me since I was a child and continue too.
One big reason why UFOs interested me so much was because they were literally coming from another galaxy, from another planet and were supposedly landing here on earth. Not only did I find that greatly interesting but also made me feel like I was part of it or potentially could be part of it.
Essentially UFOs were spotted across the world, one day they could be Mexico and the next day they could be in my front lawn and to a young child, it was quite exciting. Needless to say, they never did land in my front lawn but my interest in them has never waned.
Personally speaking, within the paranormal world UFOs and ghosts/spirits would be the most plausible to me although you should always have an open mind. I also find the subject of Bigfoot quite interesting but not as probable, however, possible.
I remember as a child reading about UFOs and wondering how it was possible for them to travel such long distances and exactly who were these aliens and were they malevolent or benevolent toward us. I have always had a great imagination and this helped to facilitate my interest and questions about UFOs and the paranormal in general.
I remember my first alien contact story which had me completely fascinated, it was the Billy Meier case. Billy Meier is an infamous Swiss farmer, who claimed to be in regular contact with alien beings and produced numerous incredible photographs and movies, especially for the time. As a youngster, I found the story to be incredible however as an adult I truly feel the man is an ingenious hoaxer, as the majority of people who study the case now believe as well.
None the less the Billy Meier case helped propel my interest in UFOs exceedingly, as well as the Betty and Barney Hill case. Only time will tell if disclosure happens, particularly in the United States, but peoples interest in UFOs only seems to be getting greater and greater as time passes by.
