Some abide in the infinitesimal space of their own dark ignorance that precludes any light of understanding coming out of the black hole of their mind.

They're known as white trash.
Living in a trailer is an economic statement. Being trash is a moral one. Equating the two is ignorance.
From what you've said, you are an ex-NASA employee.
So, do you believe in ETs? And whatever your answer, why?
...When asked if they felt anything from it, here's a compilation of responses:
7 people said "no, nothing". That's pretty straightforward.
2 people said "maybe...I'm not sure. Should I?". Kinda ambiguous, but not a definite no.
1 person said "oh yes, I feel sort of a cool tingle". This didn't really surprise me, as this particular gal likes playing with crystals and such, and is a big believer in these topics. Maybe she's just more sensitive than I am.
1 person said "I feel kinda creeped out that you're pointing that thing at me".
1 person said "If you point that thing at me, I'm gonna smack you". I pointed it at him anyway, and he did, indeed, smack me. Sometimes you have to suffer for science, I guess.
I also did some "ambush" type tests, sneaking up behind people and pointing it at the back of their necks. Out of the 5 people I did this to, 1 of them reached back and scratched the spot I was aiming at. Could be a response, could be a coincidence.
As a side note, 9 of my test subjects said "You need to spend less time on that forum. It's messing with your mind".
