PLEASE READ: A Note From Mark
Post by MarkM on Jul 28th, 2007, 3:26pm

Hello all!

I've just been assigned as Global Moderator on this thread and I wanted to take a minute to introduce myself.

I've been posting on Casebook for a couple of years now, with a few breaks in between, in earlier days under the "nickname" Arion (in case you want to dig through the old posts). I decided to use my "real" first name about a year ago, a personal acknowledgment that I'm ready to own my experiences and to move forward.

I'm an artist, children's book author, and fitness trainer living on the coast of Southern Maine. I have four grown kids, two of each (the girls I inherited through my second marriage - boys are easier smiley). My wife and I share our home with one rather unpredictable calico cat and a lovable (but intellectually challenged) English Springer.

I've been connected to the UFO phenomenon all of my life, most dramatically following a sighting and missing time episode at age five. I can go into that in more detail later on.

What do I hold as a core belief? That we are in extraordinary times. That there are no true accidents in life, and that things - both good and bad - unfold for a reason. Sometimes, we only become aware of these reasons in hindsight. In other words, synchronicity makes perfect sense to me! I also feel, on a very deep level, that we are in for some dramatic changes in the not too distant future. I don't have a sense of fear associated with this, it's more a sense of anticipation. It's my intuitive "hunch" that ET is at the center of this "event".

I look forward to participating in some stimulating dialogue in this thread. I hope that everyone who visits will feel comfortable in sharing their stories and ideas. We have much to learn from each other, both through or agreements and our disagreements. All I ask is that we remember that we're all friends here. Respect for each others feelings is of paramount importance. Whatever our particular philosophy or belief - we are entitled to embrace and express it.

Life is a great journey and I'm honored to be traveling this path with you!

Thanks for sharing, Mark. My other name is Emily.

I just realized that I have a "lost time event" in my childhood that I never dug into, age ten.

Hmm. I'm going to incubate this thought for a while, and spit it out when it's ready to hatch. I don't want to make anything UP.

Know what I mean? It has to be a real memory.

Boy, talk about irony! My original post from nearly FIVE years ago is still here - this is very strange! This was right before life intervened and took a break for awhile

heya mark! (have been sharing my expierience to my family, friends,anyone for years, so no point stopping now) --- ..hmmm, where to start? will just go into that sighting for now, is ordeal enough for me. (also 'saw/grabbed hold of/shook' an alien once in a dream when i was 5 or six whilst staying at the neighbours house in a dream, that left me screaming and almost un-consolable and am now pretty darn fkn sure it was no dream ) ...anyways,back to sighting. was walking home from school and had just started walking across my paddock when, (bizzarely) i felt, um, whos looking at me? looked across the to the sky above the houses nearby and i saw plain as day exactly who it was! a perfect 'egg', made of metal, about 10m high and 6m wide(i guess), hovering about 300m away. next thing i know, i'm standing about 50m's lower down in the paddock, i have tears streaming down my face, and it's gone. i start running across my paddock screaming for my mum/anyone to help me,(was not in good state of mind to be honest).
told my mum(later also my dad,brother,sister,eventually everyone), who tried her best to calm me down, and then spent the next two hours or so sitting on our porch overlooking the paddock( and the rest of my life bewildered, to say the least.) i never saw that egg again. --- i (think i) know for a fact!that 'they' took my memory away of what really happened,so, don't be to suprised if you feel/find that 'someone' blanked out a little bit of yours mark. --- hope that helps in any way, cheers from melbourne australia grin

Hi Watcher!

[Does the term "wanderer" hold any emotional assoication for you? Just curious! wink ]

I too believe myself to be here for the "something big" you and Mark reference, but not simply as an observer.. as a participant! I believe some of us agreed to come and assist in the coming transformation of this planet and her inhabitants, and we are hard-wired to do so simply by virtue of being ourselves and following the dictates of spirit! I like to think of what's coming as sort of a "graduation", and I'm determined to do my part to advance what I deem to be Creation's Great Plan of Light for this sector of the cosmos. As I understand it, we are learning to be conscious co-creators, inventing and fleshing-out the reality we create for ourselves by intent and design (and no longer simply by default!), without the former safety-net of "training wheels" with which the slower "thought-to-thing" progression here in three-D material expression has managed to cushion us so far. The ride can be gentle and smooth, or intense and traumatic, depending on our focus and what we bring to be. Earth changes may occur... most certainly WILL!... but they need not be of a devestating or cataclysmic nature. The primary thing to remember is that WE are in charge! What happens (and HOW) is up to us! We are responsible to that degree. We are responsible! Fear is a magnetizer. It magnetizes to you the very thing you fear, hence the saying "That which I fear the most has come upon me!" It is best not to dwell on fear-based imaginings of cataclysmic "End Times", but rather to choose to see this pivotol and exciting time of change not as death throws of the old, but as birth pangs of the new! Look at the craziness in the world... isn't it clear we need a change, and soon?? Together you and I (and everyone else with the awareness to claim responsibility for the role we are to play in this grand and exciting unfoldment!) can create a new tomorrow we'll be glad to dwell in! And remember this, too. It is my understanding that there were far more wanting tickets than were granted admission to this play, so consider it an honor and a privilege to be chosen to participate cool Peace.....

Well said Seeker! I think many here feel they have a mission to fulfill. Personally I think we all do! We all have some gift that's meant to share while at the same time we're also are here to learn. The scope of our missions may vary but that's not whats important. It's what we learn that enables our spirit to grow! Through that growth comes understanding. Who couldn't use more understanding?

BTW Mark is a talented guy both as an artist and writer who when he has time will drop in. Frankly like most who know him I wish it was more often. He's a GREAT guy!

I have heard that very same idea before from someone I meet about a year ago. I think it is great to meet like minded people online but what is truly an amazing feeling is when you recognize a fellow free thinker out in the "real" world.
It is almost like there should be a secret hand shake but there isnt. Intead there are usually suttle exchanges of radical ideas and then one person takes the brave plunge and says some thing truly out there and the other agrees.
Then the moment of recognition where you know the person beside you is like you and not like the "others" suddenly the flood gates open and a world of ideas are shared. It is truly a bonding moment that feels alot like a reunion of old old friends.

Hello. I am new here. I don't have any personal "Abduction" stories to relate. I don't have a heavy interest in science fiction or futuristic thoughts of ET. I took an interest in this subject when my best friend told me about a lost time event he had as a child, and the embarrassment he seemed to have confiding it to me only reinforced the validity it seemed to carry.

I didn't come to scorn or criticize anyone. I am curious as to what this world wide phenomena is and how it affects people. This is the first thread I have read in the forum, so I hope I'm not totally out of order with my comments.
Re: PLEASE READ: A Note From Mark
Post by outsider on May 10th, 2009, 11:51pm

I do share the same feelings of people here. I don't believe in most of the pictures of UFOs (http://twitpic.com/photos/anangeli) (https://twitter.com/anangeli/) but do believe when people tell their stories. They are compelling and there is a huge amount of them-- from all over the world. Although I have never seen a UFO I hope to see one; never had a contact,but believe there have been and continue to be.

What I don't agree to is to believe they are perfect angelic beings. They most be more advanced, but we have to be careful and approach their existence as the discovery of any other group of people -- though way above our technological level--- in any other land. I cannot presume they are more spiritually advanced because I have not seen proof of this. On the contrary. Probably because we don't understand what is happening we cannot asses either way.


I don't think any of the heart felt feelings, sense of wonder and surprise, lost time, physical and non-physical scars can be faked in all the cases. I believe in all these stories and seek them, it's my past time. I wish I could understand the reason of the abductions, intrusions, tests, messages and communications and why after more than 60 years of local history (meaning USA) and thousands of years of pictorial, historical and word of mouth stories and legends they remain a mystery. I do suffer from sleep paralysis and I try to research the forums to see if people agree if this is associated with abductions, OBEs or what.

My best wishes to all. will come back

my given and name for this reality is John. I enlightened myself (or so I first thought). I know now I did AND I did not. I feel your inspiration and creativity inside of me. A philosophy of spiritual endeaver that fills me with hope and sadness. I cry tears of milk and honey for the unenlightened then for myself for I know what MAY happen. For nothing is certain except that fact. AM I? ARN'T I? WHO AM I? AM I YOU'SE,OR A LOWLY MUSE. I need some guidance. I am in no manner a learned scholar. Im scared and feel that if click on your link to join that I will fail the test. I have been getting the signs all morning,infact all my life but never slowed down enough to notice them. I know you recognize me now. Help yourself to help each other. Read what stands out and learn from the details. Ok, have you got my drift yet. Decissions decissions. Its MY REALITY. Their I said it. I gotta keep tellin myself that because I am worried that My reality will change. Speak to me,comfort me. I know I am speaking to myself and tomorro our realities my be completly altered because of this but I had to post it. Whatever happens. Was nice to get that out.

Hi Mark,
I am a new member here and have a bit difficult to find things here. Can you help me too find a place were I can read about others who experience strange scars and things like that?

Since three years I have had scratchmarks and bruises on my body. I have also had stick marks on my foot and on my stomach (above the ovatories). I have dreamed about a dark figure beside my bed. And I have woken up with the small beings at the end of my bed. I have seen UFOs. And I have had strange paralysis.

First I thought that I was haunted by ghosts, but this is something else. I believe it is evil ETs.

Where shall I find information from others who had have this kind of body marks?

Hi Mark, I'm Rocky. I have worked with a couple of ufologists and abduction researchers. I'm not into New Age, parapsychology, the occult, divination, or space brothers but as a long term experiencer myself I have an extensive knowledge base (six decades) to base my opinions upon.
