ROFL yeah, like I have the answers. I've had a couple of peak experiences that I originally interpreted as objective and fooled me into thinking I had some real ideas about the nature of life, the universe and everything. After some thought I've decided that the experiences, while powerful, were purely subjective.
Thing is, what are we? What is it of us that will live or die? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1APOxsp1VFw#t=9m31s

As for Roswell? I've never seen enough to convince me of extraterrestrial origin. There's a lot of hearsay - but that's what I treat it as. I'm naturally skeptical and this hits all those buttons. Not enough hard data.
Thanks Duncan. This perfectly summarises my view.
