Hi ATS -
I hope all is well.
I wanted to take a few minutes of your time to introduce myself. My name is Tony and I was a child of the 80's. Cable TV was all the rage and by the
time the Discovery Channel launched, I was hooked. One particular show made a very lasting impression upon me: Arthur C. Clarke's Mysterious
. This show was the impetus for future inquiry into the realm of the unknown/other-worldly/paranormal/etc.
The Internet wasn't too far away from being in most homes by high school, so my inquiry was given a very resourceful tool to learn from. Make no
mistake about it, I was young, naive, gullible, and a whole host of other things that would create an environment in my mind capable of fostering some
'out-of-the-box' thinking. Not that I would fall for anything just I felt there was something 'else'. Whether it was the existence of ghosts (as a
very young child I lived in house that was VERY old and was thought to be haunted) or alien visitation, I wanted answers.
Fast forward a dozen years or so, I find myself googling 'time-slips' and stumbled upon an ATS thread. I think I read threads until 4AM that first
night. I lurked for a few weeks before signing up, but never got around to posting an introduction thread. After 15 months I thought I would give it
a try, so here I am.
I hope to be able to encourage civil, spirited debate, but also hope to bring myself into the wider ATS community by posting an introduction.
Any and all manner of replies/questions are welcome. Thanks for reading.
