Hello everyone. I'm Xander, from the Central NY area.

I first began to wake up to the way things are in high school, when I had to write a Senior English thesis comparing Orwell's 1984 to Huxley's Brave New World. I got busy with life in my 20s and didn't give it much thought (except for occasional rants at the nightly news' reporting of political incompetence).

But in my 30s, my disillusionment with life in general caused me to rethink everything - religion, politics, the official version of history etc. That's when I began looking into most of the topics covered on this website: conspiracy theories, UFOs, the New World Order and on and on. I read a couple of David Icke's books. I learned quite a bit from alternative spiritualities too: Paganism, the New Age, the occult. In short, I went into Information Overload Mode.

Then, I pulled back for a few years on that research to get some perspective and some sanity from everything I learned. I listened to Alex Jones and some others on shortwave, but have since learned to distrust those folks and not take them too seriously.

My primary interests are: the Paul Is Dead Theory, Obama (who is he) and CELEBRITY REINCARNATIONS (my fave). I'm also interested in the Bermuda Triangle, Annunaki, cloning, Hollow Earth, Fallen Angels, Global Fascism, Seraphim, reverse speech, the gifted, John Lennon, Twins & Doubles, and Rhesus Negative (a blood type).

Many topics on this site I now actually AVOID because I don't think it serves any useful purpose to discuss matters beyond our control which may be cover stories for what's REALLY going on. But I'm fascinated by topics where Pop Culture, Spirituality and the real world intersect with each other.

That's all for now.

Hi, I am from Memphis and I am a new member also. I have always wanted to go to Texas. Maybe one day I will be able to go. It is a great community here and maybe we will stay and learn some cool things together.
