I have experienced a conscious encounter with an entity which I can comfortably describe as 'extraterrestrial'.
This being a debate site, I find it reasonable to questions such a claim as the one you have made.
I expect then, that you will ask reasonable questions. Is my expectation unreasonable?
If you really had an encounter with an extraterrestrial, that would be an amazing thing and the world should know about it.
I consider that to be a claim. Can you explain why you find this a reasonable expectation?
I do not disagree that it is an amazing thing for anyone to have experienced a conscious encounter with an entity which they can comfortably describe as 'extraterrestrial'.
I am puzzled as to why you think the world should know about it.
Alas, it seems unimportant in the end.
To the world, or a greater portion of it, surely. I do appreciate that it was not the greater portion of the world which had the encounter. I have no expectations that the world you speak of should find it important. It is more than enough that I find it important.
Surely you must understand that alien abduction claims and such are not in short supply.
Indeed. I see significance in such claims, perhaps primarily because of my own encounter, although strictly speaking, it was not an 'abduction' of anything more than doubt. And fear of worldly things.
As you point out, such an experience would be an amazing thing. How amazing? Life-changing.
It remains to this day, a pivotal component of my life's experience for the changes it wrought as ripple effect.
