I see Aliens on my way to work every morning; the majority being illegal.
I am open minded about most things. I believe that there is shit happening around us that we are not privy too, because quite frankly, we're to dumb to even notice. And when one of us actually do notice, the rest laugh and poke fun, even though they might notice the same thing. But the mechanics of the mind say: listen my old son, that is not worth worrying about. It is unintelligible and might lead you down paths others might not like'. Me, I take the paths others don't like because A: I don't give a fu.k; and B: I don't give a flying fu.k. That is not to say that when someone says they saw a UFO shaped like a giant turnip flying past their house in the early hours of the morning, I take it as Fact. Of course not. Everyone knows that Ze Aliens only make use of three shapes: Circle, Cylinder and Square.
It has always fascinated me - even as a kid - that people worship beings that are not of this physical realm. It also came into my mind at a young age, that these stories of Gods and Angels; Demon's and Dragons etc, must have come from somewhere. I mean, I can't really imagine some hairy fu.k sitting in cave in front of his fire having a eureka moment.
During WW2 when America was fighting the Japs in the Pacific, they wanted to build airbases in and around the Indonesian archipelago. On one of the islands they chose, they found a tribe that had never before met anyone from the then outside world. The U.S. forces gave these tribes gifts, and in return, the Tribes gave the U.S. forces information about the surrounding area. When the war ended and the U.S. forces left the Island, the tribe was heart broken. So much so that they built a replica airfield and planes, and started to worship them.
When I read about that I thought to myself: What if some other beings from where the fu.k ever, came to Earth a long time ago and made a big impression on the locals.
Anyway, we're all free to believe what we will. Kinni believes in man eating super reptiles; Pun believes in the Easter Bunny; and I believe in Santa. It is all cool though, because we all share something: We all believe in something.
