Since I was a little kid I was always interested in the unexplainable.
I remember coming up with theories about the bermuda triangle and the pyramids with my friends when we were around 7-8 years old. If I remember
correctly pyramids were some sort of communication devices and the bermuda triangle had something to do with magnets and radio waves ha ha ha. We
thought we were uber smart and had everything figured out.
I also happen to have a pretty awesome mother who since early age got me interested in history, we had tonnes of history books around, and we always
got into amazing discussions in which she would give me mainstream historical facts, and then discuss some "out there" stuff (i.e. we would talk
about WWII and then she would tell me about Ahnenerbe, third reich and the occult, ancient civilizations, pyramids possibly being older than they're
supposed to be, etc.etc.). My mom is by no means a conspiracy theorist, but she's a pretty curious person, and I guess that kind of rubbed off on
Plus I grew up in Russia in 1980's, The country was pretty much falling apart, and it was an interesting time to question everything.
Communism always boggled me as a kid, to me it seemed like the biggest conspiracy.Pretty hard to wrap your head around when you're a kid-
I didn't know any commies. My family didn't believe in communism. Hell, no one around me believed in communism. Teachers in school sort of half
heartedly went through the whole commie spiel. Watching us commies portrayed in american movies was always a wtf moment ha ha. I grew up in an arsty
fartsy community (directors, actors, poets), and the joke was as long as they fulfilled their patriotic (read commie) quota, they were pretty much
left alone to write/produce whatever they wanted. Just seemed like a secret that everyone was in on. Where the hell were all those hardcore
communists that I kept hearing about? Why is everyone pretending? Conspiracy I tells ya!
Of course that was my take on it as a dumb 6-7 year old. .
Also around '88-'89 there were a bunch of UFO sightings around where I lived, and a friend had an encounter (Quite possibly bull**** on my friends
part, but of course UFO's became a new obsession
After that it was all about space, space race, moon landings, which led to USA and from there to the bay of pigs, to JFK, et cetera et cetera. Just
kind of snowballed from there on
Later on X-Files and Nowhere Man didn't help either lol
I don't think I'm a conspiracy theorist really, just a curious person who doesn't always buy mainstream history.
Wow, long post, sort of rambling here. Sorry
