Anyhow, this is a part of what I wrote privately back to him:
Hi Tye. First, I thank you for reaching out to my blog and blogging efforts. Not knowing how familiar you are with my blogs - specifically UFO Disclosure Countdown Clock - it's hard to gauge where to begin with your UFO phenomena experiences. I guess the first thing to say is that I covered the UFO phenomena in Missouri BIG TIME a few years ago and have tons of material-stories similar to your experiences. In just reading a dozen or so of your pages - several things stand out and connect directly with my analysis in my blogging about the phenomena. One is that - like it or not - you are one of about 2 dozen `Orb Callers' that I've identified so far - a search of my website under Orb Callers will yield MUCH reading for you to see how similar or dissimilar their experiences were. I can tell you that some are nearly identical... even some have similar `theories' similar to your own ideas (that I've read so far).
My Missouri coverage highlighted some of the experiences around the Lees Summit area - very in-depth - right down to interviewing the airport manager. What stood out about that flap and others I've been following since 2007 via the MUFON reports - is how the Orb/UFO phenomena projects one image/perception and yields yet another `photographic' image of itself completely different - often to most of the time the pictures look nothing like the perception. Also, the CLOSER the phenomena - the more distorted (potentially) the experience and phenomena is. I've even described a MOTIF for such encounters as the Orb phenomena seems to be `developing'.
All that said, I also see that you've been strongly considering the `ideas' of the `UFO Disclosure' crowd - something I call a dog an pony show. I have major differences with many of their opinions and `proofs' of aliens.... and I know you aren't a UFO researcher per se -- but the UFO Abduction phenomena (as far as BEDROOM experiences) has been largely discredited.... though that idea is only strong among some UFO researchers that I admire and communicate with. Oh, btw, that does not diminish your `intuitions' about when and where the phenomena may actualize. (you might want to look up Feather Orb on youtube or my blog - my blog may have directly inspired that experience of another).
As you may have gathered even from my wording of this e-mail back to you - I look VERY closely at the phenomenology of the experience(s) - and have a view only a phenomenologist might have.... (and if you think UFO experiencers are rare - phenomenologists are almost non existent). Oh, btw, I've had `anomalous' experiences, with others, while fully conscious, that I refuse to relate to my readership - so, nothing is impossible in a fortean, phenomenology based world IMO. You can share any experience and I'd have a one up with a completely different explanation. Just sayin.
Now, all that said, I mentioned some overlap - eerie overlap and NOT for the first time... and that is the #2 pencil lead below the skin acquired as a child and in my right hand below my middle finger and still visible. With a FULLY remembered experience of acquiring it that my father told me never happened. (My memory is of stabbing my hand at the age of 5-7 in a liquor store that I was in with my father.) - I've seen other photos by other experiencers that looked nearly identical to mine. Perhaps yours too.
I have not looked at one bit of your `evidence' and honestly don't need to - you are preaching to the choir. That said, of course I will look at at least some of your video and picture proofs. I've seen many structured Orbs videos and pics - they are bamboozling. Especially if you are caught up in their web of influence (like my Feather Orb reader in San Antonio.)..... You are also in need of seeing what Dean Clark was able to `bring forth' into the skies around his home in Kentucky in front on MUFON in 2008-09, eventually it was called a `religious display'. And, finally for now - the influence of Robert Bigelow on just about everything anomalous since the early 1990's is the most undertold story in `paranormal' and UFO's are front and center.
