Those who obsessively read reports of aliens will note that many of them are from reliable witnesses who seem to have witnessed something that can not be explained without breaking conventions of consensus reality. The people making these reports have lives, many of them complex and some of them at high levels of government; pilots, astronauts, senators, and others whom we have trusted with power and sometimes our lives. If a retired colonel sees a cigar-shaped object break the laws of what we define as physics, it is respectfully listened to, but often dismissed by most, to be passed around paranormal circles and studied by researchers. The thought is no one’s story should be automatically discounted. So what about the story of Adrian Hicks, who claims he spotted a blond alien wearing a tutu while walking down the street in Winchester London?
Mr. Hicks went to great lengths to have an image of this creature perfected, so he could document it and show the world. He saw it walking penguin-like beneath the Guildhall clock as several others passed by, but apparently didn’t see it. At first, this story seems strange, even a parody of what some would say of the normal rank-and-file of paranormal events, but this phenomenon of seeing things completely out of the ordinary is not unheard of, and is in fact a common theme throughout history. George Ellory Hale, for example, was advised to build the greatest observatory of his time by a little elf that would jump into his window. Robert Louis Stevenson, author of “Treasure Island,” and “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,” claims he did not write the stories, but was told them by ‘brownies.’ He was quoted as saying, “The whole of my published fiction should be the single-minded product of some Brownie, some familiar, some unseen collaborator, whom I keep locked up in the back of a garret”¦ the more I think of it, the more I am moved to press upon the world my question: Who are the little people?” The great Philip K. Dick, whose impact on the world of science fiction is unrivaled, even claims that he made contact with an orbiting intelligence called VALIS, and later wrote this down in a semi-autobiographical book trilogy. It appears something is going on here, and it may lend a great deal of credibility to Mr. Hicks’ story.
The Navajo call it the ’ÃƒÂ¡nt’Ã„Â¯Ã„Â¯hnii or yee naldlooshii, while others call them ‘skinwalkers.’ Of course these beings should not be confused with the Jungian archetype of the “trickster” as it appears in mythology throughout history, although several interesting parallels exist (variable gender, breaking of social morays, destruction of social orders). It is also one of few paranormal phenomena that has a basis in scientific testing. Dr. Alex Keul once did a scientific study of UFO sightings and found one common thread in all cases: Those who had seen UFOs, also displayed some level of psychic intuition. Could it be that those individuals who are naturally psychic are predisposed to seeing the projections created by these “trickster” spirits? If this is the case, then Mr. Hicks may not be as crazy as some would have us believe. He may, in fact, be the victim of this trickster burying itself in the anamnesis of humanity. Of course some would say that it is more likely that those who see aliens and ufos are crazy which, given the sheer number of witnesses worldwide, is a disturbing number indeed. The nature of this story appears to have been purposefully fabricated by someone to appear as incredible as possible, but certainly not Mr. Hicks who stands nothing to gain from this story, and who has conducted himself in the proper manner as someone who wishes simply more to share the truth with others about something important, yet unexplainable.
