I think you probably did serve, but the way you feel the need to rely on serving in RN as a support your story doesnt resonate with me.
I personally would be happier if the story didn't sound like a work of fiction. I just feels like something im reading out of a short story and not a witness testimony by a Warfare Specialist & top academic student in phase 2 training . But thats just my opinion.

But far from being ESP, the perception originates from a system in the brain that's devoted just to detecting where others are looking. This "gaze detection" system is especially sensitive to whether someone's looking directly at you (for example, whether someone's staring at you or at the clock just over your shoulder). Studies that record the activity of single brain cells find that particular cells fire when someone is staring right at you, but—amazingly—not when the observer's gaze is averted just a few degrees to the left or right of you (then different cells fire instead).
This specialized machinery in the brain reveals just how important your gaze is when communicating with others. Where you look conveys how you feel and what your intentions are, what you like and what you don't like, and directs attention to meaningful things in the environment. Further, making direct eye contact is the most frequent and perhaps the most powerful non-verbal signal we exchange with others; it's central to intimacy, intimidation, and social influence. Eye contact is so primal that its meaning extends across animal species: Predators stare intently before they pounce. Infants gaze at their parents to capture their attention. And as you probably know, humans and dogs can express many things to each other through eye contact alone.

Ok i read through it and only have one question what was it?
A: Non-existent, April Fools.
See reading through here people are implying it was aliens however i saw nothing in your story telling us how we would jump to this conclusion.
Thank you very much Schuler, I can see that you have really thought about what you wanted to say to me. First of all, that was probably the nicest thing, anyone has ever written about me ever (creatively speaking).
Secondly, yes, you are correct that in fact the only evidence I have is the lights in the sky. That is the reason I put so much background about myself in there at the beginning,it was to show you that I have, repeatedly on many occasions witnessed craft in the air, in night and day. I do not study lights in the air Schuyler, I studied planes, jets and helicopters, of an all manor of shape and size. I observed their capabilities, their movement, their abilities. I lived them, I knew them.
I did not just do this to bedazzle people with the given information for a single purpose, nor was just to allow the readers to engage with it, it was also to apply some form of substituted authenticity, because here, there is no stamp in the corner of this letter or a signature at the bottom of this page.
The only things I have brought to this forum is my word and my credentials, which in its entirety, I could have faked. I can assure you that I have not, but it depends on the reader whether or not they trust what it is that I am telling them.
As I have gone into detail on another post about, what we consider to be a valid source of information, it must have that aesthetic 'Stamp of approval' for us to begin to trust that source, this is something which we all live by. We need that credibility and trustworthy source of a guarantee, otherwise, we risk the future proofing of our ability to convey discovered information with one another. If information sharing is to be a benefit to us, to grow and expand on any and all discoveries together about everything we discover, as a race, then it must be factual that it happened, and above all else, we must be able to trust it. If not, we would quite literally have to do every single experiment ourselves in order to get anywhere, build our own cars, make our own paper, and so on.
But please, you have trusted me with my reproduced evidence, the only three pieces of equipment I had that day that could be of any use in reproducing what I saw, were my eyes, my brain and my heart. And I took in every bit of information that fate decided to show me that night. And most of you have treated that equipment, to be a reliable source, and I am thankful for that, I really am.
But I was there, I know what I saw. I saw those lights, I did what I was trained to do by our military, decipher the visual target. This was not something I needed to think about, it was automatic. We all decipher what we look at, all of us, especially when we look at anything in the sky. But my little automatic-'what-is-that'-switch has had some what of a fine tuning over the years.
They where lights indeed yes. But I knew from the way they moved, the speed they accelerated, the form in which they carried themselves through the night sky were not just lights Schuyler, they where solid objects. And my brain, my eyes and my heart told me that, I didn't even need to question it. I knew then what they were.
It has only been when people asked me to think about it harder that I even questioned it. It has however, not swayed my opinion on it at all, after all... I was there.
My piece on reliable education and a source of information.
