I have been a member for over a year now and check this site on almost a daily basis, but never really post in the forums. That's about to change,
though, and as you can see I'm making an introduction thread.
My name is Brett and I LOVE this website. It has everything I need. To give a brief history of why I'm here, I will say the following: My love for the
unknown started when I was in elementary school, when the first thing that really interested me (besides my dinosaur obsession when I was a toddler)
was the concept of space. I would go to the library all the time looking at pictures of planets and wondering about the universe. This has stuck with
me to the present time, and it makes sense that this gradually led me into the UFO/ET field around the time I was in middle school. It started out
with the basics, but the first genuine book on the topic that I read was Erich von Daniken's Chariots of the Gods?...this book blew me away, and ever
since I have been very involved in UFO literature.
UFOs are still my main subject of interest, but over time my interests started to include almost everything on this website. Throughout my high school
years I would do research on my own time on various subjects to satisfy my curiosity. I formed my own conclusions and my own personal beliefs and
"facts" that I hold to be true, or at least accept to be fact. The next main book that really changed my viewpoints on everything was Bob Frissel's
"Nothing in This Book Is True But It's Exactly How Things Are". This book cemented in my mind that everything is tied together in one way or another
(aliens, crop circles, spirituality, remote viewing, the universe, psychoactive drugs, dimensions, etc). I held this book to be my bible for the
longest time, and though I don't view it as I once did I still credit it as my main influence for getting me into everything I'm into now.
Currently I'm a college student that attends Temple University in Philadelphia studying Information Technology. Besides the 30+ books on New Age (what
I use to define anything that would be brought up on this website) that I own, I also own a few documentaries, magazines such as FATE, and am
subscribed to Coast to Coast AM's streamlink service (that show is incredible and my favorite source of paranormal information). As I said earlier, I
also browse ATS all the time, as well as many other websites. So it's only right that I start getting involved myself!
So hello everyone, I will be posting a lot more now, and I can't wait to be able to make my own threads (I feel like I have a lot of interesting
things to bring up). I think the only other thing you should know about me is that I am also obsessed with music, particularly metal and progressive
music, and play bass guitar. I am in a death metal band called Alustrium (you can find us on the Web at many places, including
). We are signed to Toil Records
out of Philadelphia, have an album called
An Absence of Clarity out in stores such as FYE and online on iTunes
sites like Amazon and CDBaby, and lastly have a music video for our song Degradation here
is all I can think of for now, so I'll see you all in the forums!
P.S. My dream before I die is to see a UFO at least once
