I first took this survey about a year and a half ago and the most shocking thing was that when I started it, my intention was to prove how
ridiculously general the questions were, but the more I wrote, the more bizarre stuff I started to remember and I kept updating my answers as
long-dormant memories flooded back. It freaked me out pretty badly, truth be told, and after I'd written pages and pages on what I could recall, I
deleted all existing copies (local, site journal, FB etc). Didn't want to think about it, and now I've forgotten all I remembered then..
Question #50 really hits home, as I've had some very strong indications that I'm not meant to discuss these things - e.g.
- my partner and I spontaneously falling asleep on a few occasions when the topic came up: twice while watching an alien abduction documentary -
extremely odd as I'm a chronic insomniac and it takes industrial strength meds to put me to sleep, and in the 9 years we were together I never once
saw him nap or even nod off otherwise; each time I'd dream the videotape was rewinding itself and someone was angry with me, saying I shouldn't be
watching it, and I woke up to find it rewinding. Second time it happened was about a year or two later while discussing the incident itself - he
literally went unconscious within seconds, even though less than 2 minutes earlier he'd been sitting at his computer playing a car racing game. In
the latter case I was unaffected but we never tried to discuss it again. We kind of laughed it off, really.
- my work server repeatedly crashing each time I tried to write about a peculiar encounter that had taken place the night before, and only staying
put after I cut out anything that could even hint at what had occurred, which made it utterly useless in the end. All I recall now is that the
incident had involved strange lights outside my bedroom window and me waking up on the living room sofa, which had never happened before. I don't
really wish to remember anyway. Those were scary times - lots of unexplained events that I would not want to relive.
- not being able to retrieve a copy of the aforementioned survey using recovery software. It should've been on my hard drive as well as in the
database backups of my site, but it's missing with no indication it ever existed. I've never had a file disappear so completely, and more
significant is the fact that I can pull up other frequently edited and eventually deleted files from the same period, but not even a trace of this
Anyway, my results:
1. What's your score? 34 (Why do some of the earlier comments think it would be impossible to function with a high score? Frankly these are the
least of my problems...)
2. Were you brutally honest? I could've answered 'yes' to a lot more, but I'm pretty sure there was a logical explanation in each case, so yeah
I'd say brutally erring on the side of understatement.
3. Are you Sure? Yes
4. So do you think you've had a ride in big ship? Nope, seriously doubt anything of the sort. I'm more inclined to believe that the things I
experienced involved alternate dimensions and beings from another realm, but not outer space, not traveling in ships etc. I just can't wrap my mind
around the concept - too far out, I guess.
