Re: Brief Biographical Sketch
My name is Derek Falken, and I've recently decided to add a measure of online interactivity to my exploratory research into the phenomena addressed
in your forums. This introductory post is a compressed biographical sketch with the intent to reveal and identify my areas of knowledge and fields of
I've chosen to keep specific personal details vague, due to the fact that there are many people out there with various mental disorders who might
decide, for one reason or another, to harass you or use personal information for their own nefarious schemes.
I reside in the United States of America.
I am strictly an amateur investigator into these phenomena, and to this date I am unknown on any public discussion forum, website, or community. I
have remained as a non-registered lurker on many sites over the course of five years.
While I have a university-level education, I have gained most of my knowledge through personal research which includes speaking to certain individuals
and amassing an extensive library on a variety of subjects. I am not an expert in any one subject, and I've chosen an inter-disciplinary approach to
reap the benefits of examining the intersection of all sets and subsets of my fields of study.
I've had many personal experiences with certain aspects of the phenomena. However, because I recognize the tendency of the brain to confabulate,
distort, and otherwise alter memories and experiences, it's unlikely that I will share them. No matter how much I declare my objectivity, I cannot
trust the faculties of my brain to be absolutely objective at all times.
I have made a formal decision to begin writing my perspectives and publish them. Hopefully I can benefit your community, and gain benefit from our
Current Focus: I'm re-evaluating some of my theories regarding ancient myth and their parallels to the UFO and abduction-related phenomena.
I look forward to the exchange of ideas.
Currently I work as a technical writer, computer graphics artist, and account executive.
