Name is Matt, 26 year old hailing from Australia-land.
I'm not really good with introductions, especially when they are in typed format, but I'll be sure to try my best!
Over the past 10 years now, I have been obsessed to the point of near-insanity with ancient history, conspiracy theories, UFO's, space exploration
and the unknown. I crave the mysterious and ponder the possibilities of 'what if' constantly. Some say I take it too far from time to time, but I
believe I've found a nice equilibrium.
About two weeks ago now, I had this 'feeling' that something just wasn't right in the world. Sounds crazy, yes, I was even wondering myself if I
was going mad.
Long story short, I ended up 'waking up'. Overcome with dread, fear, terror and panic, I had to pull myself together and that in turn brought me
So since then, I've been reading into anything and everything I can get my eyes on across this site, depriving myself of sleep fueled by excessive
amounts of caffeine and I must say:
It has made me so much more aware, and what fear I had, has totally washed away. Thanks ATS!
The only way I can really describe the 'awakening', is that of Neo being removed from the Matrix. Welcome to the real world! Cliche, but hey, it
fits. Disturbingly well.
I suppose I should mention some details about myself whilst I write this novel! I love graphic design, and space photography. I've lost many hours of
sleep pouring over photos of planetary bodies, inch by inch, in search of those elusive structures, artifacts or any signs of life.
I love mythology and ancient history, and the ideas and theories bound to them involving astronomy, astrology, aliens and even the future!
I'm not a religious person, I would call myself an atheist, however I do not dismiss the possibilities at all. I've quite often had to read up on
aspects of religion in order to understand certain pieces of history or myth. I'm an information junkie!
In my offline persona, I work in a lousy office, doing monotonous drone work. Not fun, let me tell you. When I'm not being a slave to the system,
I'll chill out to some tunes as I love music, Tool in particular, playing guitar (quite badly), enjoy drinks with friends, stargazing, photography,
drawing, reading and most importantly: Spending time with the girlfriend. There, now she can't hurt me.
Not much else to say really, well there might be, but I seem to have dragged this novel on long enough. I do apologize for that! I Look forward to
absorbing more ATS goodness, getting involved in various discussions, and speculating and theorizing like mad!
