Welcome, to all of those insane enough to walk this blog!

As you might have noticed, this here blog is one big archive of the ramblings of an insane author. So insane, in fact, that I wouldn't be surprised if you went mad just reading said blog...Good luck ;)


I lied. This is not, in fact, a "directory" as the title above might suggest...This is merely a warning of what you might find on this blog. I believe I have already warned you of the insane ramblings archived in this blog, but I must say, if you are not prepared for the tomfooleries that can be found here, you might just want to close this tab, shut your computer down, and walk away slowly in order to keep your OWN sanity in check. Fair warning >;)

The great debate: Aliens and UFOs

Today, I took the time to do a little research, and on a more serious note than usual, I would like to talk about Aliens, and UFOs. And not the actual definition of "Alien", as in "foreign" or "strange", or even "an unknown object", or the actual definition of "UFO", as in "Unidentified flying object", but the more known (or used) definition, like "little green creatures from space", and "flying discs" or "Alien spacecraft from outer-space". I have done research on both sides of the debate, and have come up with a small argument for each, although the "Aliens and UFOs exist" side of the argument could be construed either way, depending on whether you truly trust our government, or think that they are covering things up all the time.

They do exist:
For this argument, I would like to talk a bit about a project called "Project Blue Book". Project Blue Book was a project started in 1952 by the United States Air Force, to investigate whether "UFOs" were a threat to national security, and to scientifically analyze UFO-related data. A termination order was given for the Blue Book project in December 1969, and all activity on the project was ended in January 1970. By the time it ended, Blue Book had collected 12,618 UFO reports, and concluded that most of them were "misidentifications of natural phenomena (clouds, stars, et cetera), or conventional aircraft", and a few were considered hoaxes. 701 of the reports were classified as "unknowns". Although, research has proven that there are over 1,500 well documented, well-studied "unknowns" in Blue Book's archives. There are also rumors that though the project ended, the Air Force continued in collecting and studying UFO reports, despite official claims other-wise. Now, depending on the way you look at this information, you could either believe the government in what they say, or you could choose to believe that they are covering up Alien activity, and UFO sightings, and therefore keeping the existence of said things a secret to us, thus, Aliens and UFOs do indeed exist.

They do not exist:
For this argument, I have decided to discount the existence of Aliens, by discounting Alien Abduction. To do this, I'd like to give you an alternate explanation to the phenomenon of "Alien abduction", which is Sleep Paralysis. Sleep Paralysis is when you wake up in the middle of the night, and can't move anything but your eyes. It occurs when the brain awakes from a REM (Rapid Eye Movement) state, but the body paralysis remains. This leaves the person fully conscious, but unable to move. Victims of Sleep Paralysis may also experience terrifying hallucinations, and an acute sense of danger. Therefore, they are basically paralyzed for several seconds, or minutes, with only the use of their eyes. And they see hallucinations (possibly of strange creatures in their room), and a strong sense that they are in danger. This, as you can imagine, can be very terrifying to experience. Some reports read that various factors increase the likelihood of both paralysis, and hallucinations. These include: sleeping in a face upwards, or supine position, irregular sleeping schedule (taking naps, sleeping in, or sleep deprivation), increase in stress, sudden environmental/lifestyle changes, and a lucid dream that immediately precedes the episode. So you can see, anyone with any of those conditions in their lives, can possibly experience Sleep Paralysis. This could explain the feeling that you have been "abducted by Aliens" in the middle of the night, when in reality, you have merely had Sleep Paralysis, which gave you a hallucination of what you would describe as "Alien abduction". This is all just a theory, but there have been scientists that proposed this condition as an explanation for "Alien abduction" and "Ghostly encounters", so there must be some truth in the explanation that I have given you.

I, for one, do not believe that Alien life exists, but that's just my biased opinion because I am Christian, and therefore do not believe in "evolution" or "Alien life". But you may believe in that sort of thing, so please do not be offended when I say that I don't believe in that crap, and do believe that UFOs are merely the government testing new aircraft technology, or something, and that Aliens are just the ramblings of someone who encountered something unusual, and had no other explanation for it other than Alien life, and that Alien abduction is simply a phenomenon that occurs when in Sleep Paralysis.

I hope what I've written today will shed some light on the subject, and maybe help you come to your own conclusion on the matter.

Blog ya later, Miss Eccentric.
P.S. The information that I've given to you today is very minimal, as I didn't want to sit here all day writing about what I've researched, but if you would like to see more information about either subject, I suggest that you type "Project Blue Book" or "Sleep Paralysis" into your choice of whatever search engine you use, and you'll be able to read more about what I've touched on. That's what I did to find my information, anyway.
