...market yourself or your "proof" to the highest bidder?
...immediately contact trusted media sources and inform them of your find?
...lose it and never speak of it again for fear of?
...write a book and/or join the seminar circuit?
I pose this question for a few reasons. One, going back to the history of California's gold rush.
It was often times that the people that got wealthy in an area were not the miners, but the merchants that provided the tools, such as pans, shovels
I'm noticing the same trend in esoteric subjects. Here on ATS we have a top banner inviting us to the 10th annual UFO event. I clicked, checked
tickets, and noticed it's just like any other seminar I've looked at. Ticket to get in price, ticket to hear more price, ticket to hear even more
price, ticket to meet and greet price, ticket to meet, greet, and even drink price.
So, I posed myself with the question, "What would I do" if I had any kind of information that would lean towards the possibility of other life in
the universe. Would I too fall into a "UFO Circuit" so to speak?
The answer for me was simple. First, I would do everything under my power to preserve the evidence, while at the same time trying to make any kind of
back-up or photographic evidence and distribute that to as many reliable sources as possible, and I would try to remain "behind" the scenes of the
matter, ultimately anonymous.
So, I guess this is kind of a "simple" survey, to see what you, the members of ATS would do.
If we all have the same answers more or less, it may just help us all tell the difference between the "Miner" and the "Merchant".
