Hi Nick & others,

I am wondering if you are at liberty to tell if the child you
mentioned had any kind of "abnormalities" with his brain.

I have Temporal Lobe Epilepsy, effecting the pineal gland. It
was due to a brain injury when I was 14. However, in my own
research and study, it seems my pineal has been "mis-firing"
from an even earlier age, though it didn't show up as epilepsy
until a few days after the injury.

If you've read anything I have written here or anywhere else,
you might know that I was an active part of James Gilliland's
ECETI for years. While there, I experienced all manner of, not
just UFO, but other paranormal activity that I just don't know
how to fully explain. I have had extremely bizarre experiences
all my life. Most times, I can write off the strangeness to
over-active brain activity taking place.

I do know that because of the nature of the temporal lobe
activity I experience, I am at somewhat of a disadvantage when
trying to give first hand accounts of UFO and paranormal
experiences. However, enough has happened that takes place to me
and other people around me to make me wonder if it isn't just my
temporal lobes lighting up. It seems something else is going on,
especially in the case of UFOs that were seen and sometimes
filmed by large groups.

Those out there who have seen these things for themselves come away
completely different. It is a life altering experience and very
emotional, which then gives direct correlation, I would think, to
these experiences and high temporal lobe activity, much the way the
"religious" or ecstatic experience does as current research is showing
with NDE and drug induced tests.

I guess the logical question here would be, has there been any
research to this end? Is there a way that technology can cause
an increase in temporal lobe activity? If it is fairly easy to
do with electronic or magnetic means, then it would seem to me
that our current grip on reality is tenuous at best and we are
at the liberty of any higher technology or natural force that
can manipulate this.
