Wisdom, quotations, and references to popular science fiction films are about as bad as I was expecting. It appears to me, and the casual open-minded
observer, that your life and mind are more controlled by science fiction novels, movies, and culture, rather than alien life forms. I half expected a
quote from Obi-Wan Kenobi or Captain Kirk thrown in. I seriously wonder about some here...what their philosophies and life would be like if the
X-Files and Matrix had never been made, or become the staples of pop-culture that they are.
I'm not trying to be offensive or combative. We ALL want to believe in something. People as a species are drawn to and awed by the unknown,
especially the members of this forum. I'm no different.
But it gets to a point where it becomes your life, and you cling so desperately to it that reason and science are thrown out the window because
they don't offer anything to you. Aliens are more fun than tax returns, and spaceships more attainable then women. Government cover-ups become more
enjoyable then working We've opened our minds SO much our brains have fallen out. Questioning authority and the established way of thinking does NOT
mean blindly following the bizarre and groundless. Let's come back to earth now, people. (pun intended)
