An Overview and Forward Truth:
First off, I'd like to say thank you to the curious and loyal readers who have kept up with my writings, returning day after day in hopes of something fresh and insightful. I hope you've not been disappointed.
And I hope you are ready to move forward with me, because with this 100th post, I believe the time has come to dispense with little gray men and draconian overlords for a little while. To turn away from ghoulies and ghosties and long leggedy beasties and things that go bump in the night. They are but pieces**, bit players and not the goal which we seek.
Having considered the concept and effects of the gray aliens and fashioned theories as to what they may or may not be, it is time to swim in the deeper sea of truth. It is time to put away our toys, our petty dramas - and have the courage to acknowledge that which we have avoided since man first saw shadows dance beyond the perimeters of his vision, and voices spoke to him in the halls of his mind.
We are not alone.
We have never been alone.
We are not the most intelligent, nor highest evolved life form on this planet.
That which stands above us is not an alien, nor a reptilian.
It is not past or future man, nor man in any form.
It is more intelligent than us, because we can not understand it.
It is faster than us, because we can not outrun it.
It is stronger than us, because we can not harness it.
It is immortal to us, because we can not out live it.
It is more clever than us, because we can not outwit it.
It has a need for us, because it has not destroyed us.
It does not have a need for us, because it does not save us.
It lies, because it tricks and deceives us.
It tells truth, full knowing man will not believe.
It forces us to think, because we are lazy.
It forces us to hurt, because we are strongest when we hurt.
It forces us to trust, because we can do little else.
It forces us to fear, because we must move beyond fear.
It fashions deities and demons, and dares us to defy them.

In the past 12 months we have seen NASA announce one amazing discovery after another. In fact, only recently has an alledged *Earth Twin* been unveiled! Not only do such findings as the above serve to illustrate how it is only a matter of time before we discover life similar to our own, but also the importance of keeping an open mind - especially in an age where our measure of knowledge may change by leaps & bounds, all within the proverbial blink of an eye.
So here again I think we must agree to push forward and dispense with the nonsense, to put aside such ridiculous benchmarks as *do you really believe in aliens?* as if harboring said belief somehow discredits one's intelligence and mental well being.
Not only do I suspect the likelihood of life similar to our own, but I'd be willing to wager on the possibility of life so far evolved and removed beyond our current paradigm as to be virtually unrecognizable when the day arrives that we run smack dab into it.
I still find myself vacillating on the conundrum those blasted gray aliens have created in our mythology ... yet, once again, does the problem lay with our own inability to recognize these creatures for what they truly are - OR, are they a psychological bridge to far greater truths???
Only time will tell.
