After just over a year of being a member here at ATS I'd like to take some space to tell you a story about the journey that brought me here and kept
The mind is a wicked thing, it can take us places we'd rather not go, force us to see things in a way we'd rather not, feel emotions we'd like to
delete. However there is another side... The one that desires truth. Answers to the unknown, the ever searching wander for facts, evidence and meaning
for our own insignificant existence.
One of the tools some of us have discovered in this quest to know more is the computer. The internet and the power of a search engine. Amazing what
you can find at the click of a mouse. What can be even more amazing, is how many you can find who share your own quest. It seems many are searching
for the same things.
Something as simple as a key word typed in a search engine can bring you, me and anyone on this quest to a place such as this. That is exactly what
happened to me.
AboveTopSecret.com, what is this?
Once your start reading you can't stop. I know I could not. From reading the first post that night, through the early hours of the next day I found
myself held captive. With every new discussion came many replies which brought even more questions. Almost every topic of interest was there. How
could this be?
The coffee was brewing the next morning after that first discovery of this place we all are now apart of, I couldn't stop clicking. Why?
Am I addicted? Or have I found a place where I am able to now see others who in some ways think exactly like me? Just one more click and maybe I'll
find the answer.
The world seems like a darker more evil place now. Terrorist attacks on 9/11 have caused more conspiracy theories, again with seemingly endless
replies and even more questions. Politics have held some captive. The ever illusive aliens and UFO’s are always a great topic. Mysteries that no one
can seem to answer with real facts, but there is just enough to keep one looking for more.
Is that even possible?
Among the more serious topics I was able to find some humor. Something I believe we all could use more of. Is everything and anything a potential
I've discovered the human mind here, opened windows into what we are and how fragile and really alone we feel. Perhaps that is it. Are we alone in
this massive universe?
Who and what are we to believe?
Almost everything and anything can be found here at AboveTopSecret.com, That in itself is almost frightening.
Click, Click, Click... someone stop me please!
They say tomorrow is another day, so with each day that comes I wake up to see my world, your world and everyone's world in a strange new way now. I
can hear the sounds, feel the emotions.. And yes I can even smell the conspiracy!
ATS, more than an addiction, it is your connection to the human mind!
Your own private window into others.
Seek and ye shall find..
