48 Percent Of Americans Believe UFOs Could Be ET Visitations
According to a recent HuffPo/YouGov poll, 48% of Americans believe it’s possible that UFOs have visited and observed our planet. Only 35% of those polled totally spurned such an idea.
Additionally, 10% of the U.S. population say they have seen an alien space craft with their own eyes. And while the number of people who claim to have been taken by aliens is much lower, they do exist, and more come forward every year.

Oh god thank fucking christ.
I usually don’t reblog these, but I feel like some of my followers could probably use the reassurance. I definitely have these kinds of thoughts sometimes.
so i’m not crazy for randomly thinking such thoughts? what a relief!
Edgar Allan Poe had a name for it too: The Imp of the Perverse. he compared the impulses to a demon that urges people to do the wrong thing simply because it can be done
The compulsion to jump from high places is called “l’appel du vide" in French. The call of the void. I think it’s specific to that one instance, but I think it’s a cool phrase for this phenomenon in general.
I think about this with random sharp objects laying around, too. “What if I just jammed this into my eye or throat right now? … oh god WHAT.” Just… fucking christ, brain. Don’t.
Reblogging this again because most people don’t/never know how normal these thoughts are, and that can be a major source of stress. It’s okay. You’re okay. Just, you know, don’t follow through on that shit.
Sometimes I wonder if the occasional vivid images in my head of myself falling into traffic or tripping and knocking my teeth out or dropping expensive, precious things are points where I failed the mission and had to respawn and start over.
There exists a probability engine in your head, that constantly calculates the chances of stuff happening. You can’t turn it off; it is part of what makes you human.
Stuff like “If you drop a ball it will probably roll this way” or “these stairs are slippery, your foot might slip” or “biting into this fruit might find a pit”.
Each of these scenarios generates a potential fictional outcome: you imagine the ball bouncing, your foot slipping, etc. This simulation of events is a gift, something that sets us apart from beasts.
It is a constant barrage of small inputs, nearly subconscious, that drives decision making. It is your sensory data analyzed by an expert system tuned by thousands of years of evolution & experience.
But here’s the thing: these “intrusive thoughts” are actual events that could happen, albeit with a very tiny probability. Sometimes these .005% outliers randomly bubble to the surface and are considered (with horror) alongside high-probability events.
It’s a bug in the software.
Nothing to worry about.
