Bring on the aliens! Am I right?
Many of us are intrigued by the thought of alien life on other planets or somewhere else in the universe. Since around the 1940’s and 1950’s, the idea of alien life increased with the knowledge of Area 51 in Roswell, New Mexico and the supposed crash that had happened there. Shortly after that crash, our technological advances began to take off! The theory is that the government was able to understand the alien technology from the crash and begin to use it to get an advantage over other countries when it came to weapons and aircraft.
Aside from Roswell, there are countless accounts of alien abductions. Many who have said they were abducted, talk about having memory loss and loss of time, nightmares, and sleepwalking. There have been many famous cases such as the Betty and Barney Hill case in 1961 and also the abduction of Travis Walton.
Many argue the fact that aliens are just a part of our imagination and the people that have these encounters are just misinterpreting reality. I think that is craziness. Some of these encounters are told so specifically, that it is hard to fathom that someone would actually go through all that trouble to make it up.
But what makes our society so obsessed with the possibility of alien life?
In my personal opinion, I think we are all looking for something more. We don’t think we can be the only ones out in this huge universe, do we? It seems impossible for that to be the case. I just hope one day we will get clear evidence or be told by our governments that we are not alone in this universe or even on Earth. Until then, I believe we will continue to be obsessed with the idea of aliens and the possibility of being contacted by another life form!
