The Real Reason It’s So Important?
Professional Writer, a nature and wildlife enthusiast who has written for many magazines.
While we’re waiting for science to do it’s thing and process DNA evidence to prove without a shadow of a doubt that other intelligent human-like creatures actually do walk the earth, the debate about their existence will still rage on. Whether you believe or not, it’s a fact in this community that we all reluctantly accept.
But why have we all become so obsessed? Is it the need to be right? Maybe, but I don’t think that’s the whole reason. Is it the need for vindication? In part, but that’s not all of it either. Is it money? Yes, that too, a little, but not necessarily. Not when so many of us do this work for very little or nothing.
There’s a little element of obsession that takes over when you’ve seen, heard, or otherwise experienced something that hasn’t been proven to exist. You know what you saw, but may not always matter. There may still a part of you that has to ask the question, "Did I really? Or did I just imagine it?"
But for those of us who’ve never actually had a sighting or been forced to struggle through the act of processing that, it’s more like just satisfying an intellectual curiosity. Or maybe it’s just fun to think about.
But for those who struggle every day to process what they saw, it becomes more of an obsession; a motivation that drives you want to know more and to understand. The real, solid proof becomes more important because maybe you DO need to vindicate yourself to some degree. That would feel good, wouldn’t it? This must surely be the case with habituators. Seeing these creatures on a regular basis when other don’t have that experience could be frustrating, and vindication might be the sweetest thing ever.
But it’s different for those who’ve just had a random sighting, face to face with legend in a split second in infinity. They are the uniquely tortured individuals in this quest. And they’re the ones I’m focused on here and now.
There’s always that miniscule, remote possibility that you didn’t see what you thought you saw. But there’s just as good a chance that you did. And when the proof finally does come, it certainly won’t end the arguments because there’s so much left to explore and learn. But maybe it will help you JUST enough. Maybe you’ll see that it’s not entirely necessary to know what you saw was real. Maybe it’s even simpler than that. If the real proof is finally already there to support what you believe, maybe that will help you relax and put it into perspective. No more stressing over possibilities. No more wondering. What you saw very well COULD have been real, and maybe that’s all you’ll need to know. We can only hope. *******DF
