Man this has been a wild ride. I used to watch UFO stuff on TV in passing in the 2000s, but otherwise I considered myself super hesitant to believe these fanciful stories of otherworldly sightings, government cover-ups, recovery of NHI bodies, and abductions.

And then, here I am living my life with eyes forward and feet on the ground when suddenly, in early July, I come across the Grusch/Coulthart interview and Pandora’s box bursts open. Since then I’m just digging through everything I can find on the subject often revisiting stories I’ve read about before through this new lens of “this stuff was real.”

I’ve had a couple moments while lying in bed where it just hit me like a ton of bricks–the thought that we’re not alone. But not just that, the thought that they’re here and there’s nothing we can do about it. We can’t just tell them to go away. We can’t tell them anything really. They’re here and they’ll do what they want to. And maybe that’s okay? I mean, if they wanted to destroy us they could have easily done so by now. At best, they do care about us and want to help assimilate us, albeit slowly, into some interstellar community. At worst, we are currently no threat to them, but the moment we rival them in technology they may decide to squash us or somehow limit our progress. Either way, they are part of our natural environment and have been for some time. At least they seem respectful of our space.

So what is one to do with that information? I guess I’ll just have to put my feet back on the ground and carry on. In the meantime, I’ve been enjoying this song to ease my existential dread. Maybe it will help others deal with the ontological shock of all of these revelations of late.
