True since time immemorial.The greatest minds of our existence have been mocked, disparaged, discredited for their discoveries and theories, until they were proven right with time and replication.
Some people are just further ahead than others.
Overall, though, we humans fear what we do not understand. But me? I’m fascinated by what I don’t understand. Anyone can say “no, can’t happen.” It’s easy to think we know everything. But, of course, if we did, there would never be any new technology at all. No new scientific discoveries.
Give me an open mind and a way to dig around in stuff that doesn’t make logical sense, any day.
At some point in my life’s journey, I realized that my mind was open to wondrous possibilities, to things that seemed incredible on their face. Had I been gifted with a bigger brain (and patience) I might have been one of those sceintists working on the leading edge of knowledge. Instead, my curiosity has led me down many paths of personal exploration, paths that are sometimes disparaged. It doesn’t deter me, though, because I am well aware that some of the most valuable things are found in hidden corners. There is so much to learn and consider if we just look around. Unburdened by the heavy weight of superstition and organized religion, I travel light around these topics, flitting from one to the other and finding surprising connections.
Here is what I’ve come to believe:
- We are not alone in the Universe. Other intelligent life exists.
We have had visitors from other parts of the Universe. UFOs are real.
All points in time and space are connected. It’s how ESP works and how interstellar travel will work.
Major theoretical brains of our time don’t rule out time travel. They say we aren’t there yet. But we will be one day. Here’s some interesting scientific thought on the subject.
Our government has kept and continues to keep many secrets about this stuff.
One of the great things about being retired is having the time to read and watch and learn. For someone like me, whose mind is an open vessel, it’s like being a kid in a candy store.
How about you? What new territories have you discovered in your life?
