Well - I finally did it. I joined ATS after what seems like a small eternity, but I felt compelled to actually subscribe because I have been having a really strange phenomenon happen to me that I haven't been able to find any explanation for, so here I am, introducing myself so I can contribute and utilize this amazing forum.

I'm a 40yr old guy from NJ and have been an avid follower of all things relating to Anonymous/Legion, hacking, alternate realities, alternate dimensions, spiritualism, religion, politics, occult, ghosts, supernatural and just about anything else that has very little explanation, but piques my curiosity. I'm an avid web surfer, and the Internet is my reading material.

I don't take anything at face value anymore and always am looking to "look behind the curtain". I have led a very interesting life, and have been exposed to things that are unique to only me. My friends and I are all free-thinkers, and the furthest to mouth-breathing troglodytes, however, even they have a hard time keeping up with some of my theories or brain belches, so I am here to see what other like-minded people can make of some of my more obscure thoughts.

AboveTopSecret is much like a theme park with many, many rides, with that said...
Here's a few thoughts before getting onto any one of the 1000's of topical rides at Above Top Secret, also known as ATS, the world's largest Civil & Unique Discussion Community.

*** Please be at least this tall to get on any of the rides, (Johnny stretches his arm outward), and act like an 'civil' adult. This will save you a lot of future stress, frustration and possible action by one of your friendly neighborhood Mods!

*** Please remember that some members are very passionate and vocal depending on what ride you're on. Before getting on a ride, you should be mentally fit, emotionally stable and have a strong stomach for theories, conjecture, research and evidence presented that may be contrary to your own.

*** Please be "open-minded" enough to understand that sometimes the ride isn't always what you might think or expect. At times, you may learn something new and 'out-of-the-box' before you get off the ride, this is a natural and normal phenomena.

*** Please note that at times the ride gets overly-heated and "it's strongly suggested" to get off the ride to regroup one's thoughts before continuing. This will also help guarantee that the ride will move forward without getting derailed or explode into a fiery trashbin.

*** Please have fun! But be aware if you act in an uncivil-like manner, use profanity, troll, intentionally spread a hoax and/or get verbally abusive, you will be removed off the ride by a Moderator. This is for your safety, & also for those both young and old on the ride with you.

So buckle up, keep your arms within the ride's comfort zone, have fun and "Deny Ignorance"...!

Welcome XJ, looking forward to reading about your story. The "strange phenomenon" and Deja Vu type threads are some of the more interesting ones on ATS in my opinion.

Try using this type of search if you haven't already to turn up some interesting material.

Thank you. I will do the required and comment and contribute before I start my own threads, but I will say this, I'm not a stranger to technology. I've spent the past 20 years as what some would call an "ethical hacker" or officially a Web Engineer and am very well versed in most of the paradigms of the web/Internet, and how data flows that most people are unaware of, and its because of my background that I have questions and concerns that go deeper than many of the answers we've gotten around the globe so far. I look forward to being active here now that I have a forum to share my thoughts.

Thanks again for the welcome.
