one overlays both a map of the missing people and a map of sasquatch sightings. But, I never really believed there was sufficient evidence to suggest
aliens were visiting earth, as I know that the military and government has far more advanced tech than the majority will ever know.
I've read a lot of books from paranormal investigators, and interestingly, in so-called paranormal "hotspots," you'll almost always find UFO
sightings, ghostly hauntings, Bigfoot sightings etc. side by side.
What kills me about the OP's story: I just remembered a story that I read a few years ago. On the "Unexplained Mysteries" forum, there's this guy
named "Ironghost," who has made a sport out of playing with the Ouija board (which I usually don't condone).
BUT, instead of asking the typical dumb questions Ouija players ask, "Who are you?", "When did you die?" etc., he and his group somehow get in
contact with the weirdest but most interesting entities. One is called "Mommy in the Nothing Chamber" and seems to be a sort of computerized,
advanced consciousness residing in a vacuum. He does these communications all the time and writes them all down, and they're highly intelligent and
so scientifically sound and amazing that they often really blow your mind. He also has communicated with "living people" from other timelines,
Long story short, he once made contact with what supposedly was an older teenage boy in a parallel reality. The boy asked where the group was, and
they answered, "Minnesota," whereupon the boy totally freaked out and asked if they were "dark magicians." In the course of the conversation, the
boy said that in his reality, Minnesota [LOTS OF FOREST!!!] was a very scary and dark place, and that people who traveled there usually didn't come
back and would never be seen again. He said there were dark and scary things in the forests.
Don't know why I had to think of this again, and yes, call me totally loony, but what if this "parallel reality" was not just a figment of the
group's imagination? What if it was our country's future?
Personally, about 10,15 years ago, I'd go alone into the woods all the time. I felt very connected to nature and Spirit and always felt supremely
protected. That changed about 8 or so years ago -- all of a sudden I'm afraid to go in there alone, something I've never really had before. I can't
explain it; I thought I'm maybe just paranoid, but who knows, maybe it's some deep-sitting instinct that we all have?! Has anyone else experienced
this -- being totally comfortable in the woods before and now feeling scared (without any traumatic events happening to them, obviously)?
I'd be interested to find out more about this.
