I haven't shared this with anyone else besides my brother. I was drunk when I poured out about this incident, but, we discovered that we shared
another interest besides partying.
The first time I "woke up" was when I was around the age of 7. My father and I were messing around in a field extremely close to our house. We
pretty much spent the whole afternoon out there playing soccer. By the time the sun was gone we resorted to play fighting/tickling all that junk and
at one moment (after I was put on my back being tickled) I saw a huge, and I mean, enormous craft flying right above me.
At that moment I was telling my father to turn around and look but he thought I was trying to trick him to get out of the tickle trap. So, he didn't
look. I've been pretty much beating myself from that day forward, I couldn't get him to look to confirm what I was seeing was really there.
Now, to explain exactly what I saw:
The craft was large and circular. There was a triangle wedge missing from the circle itself, almost like it was bitten out of it. The color was almost
exactly as that of the night sky. It had very faint lights which were all glowing white and moved completely silently. At the time I didn't know
anything about UFOs besides typical kid stuff. My parents allowed me to watch and play pretty much anything I wanted to, though. Which possibly could
have lead to me imagining something like this.
I thought so up until about a year ago. The reason why I had believed so all this time was simply because I had never, ever, ever, EVER seen another
UFO that looked like the one I had seen. That all changed after I had witnessed the NASA videos, especially the Tether one. The craft in all of those
looked exactly like the ones I had seen, except, they seemed to be of pure energy and not solid like the one I had seen. If you've seen them then
you'll understand from my explanation.
Up until that point I was more interested in government conspiracies like that of 9/11 which to me screamed bullcrap. Nothing seemed to be right about
it and nothing seemed to fit perfectly. But after I had seen the Tether video I was moved to find a community dedicated to alternative topics, so,
here I am finally.
The overall "knowledge" that I would gain (and still am) through this whole ordeal can very well be attributed to that one moment in my life though.
Without it, I think I'd be believing in all sorts of fallacy.
