I've always had a strange relationship with The Greys. Although I don't think I have any missing time, nor do I recall ever seeing a proper Grey, I've always taken their existence as a matter of fact. When I first listened to the ELO album, Time, I decided to write a story based on that music. It was about a girl who got taken by Cassiopaeians and transported to the future to help fight an alien invasion. It was crap. But I illustrated it... And the drawings of the Cassiopaeians were decidedly...Grey. Even though I was baptised in the waters of science fiction at a very early age, and still say alms to the church of Star Wars, I don't remember having ever seen what I was drawing until a year later, when I watched my very first movie on video tape. It was Close Encounters of the Third Kind. It was one of those holy hell moments.
Yes, I've seen UFOs, but I have never rushed to the conclusion they were spacecraft. Yes, Aunt Tudi and I saw a...device positioned in the sycamore tree to face into my bedroom window. It was geometric, containing a circle, a square, and a triangle. It was shiny, and I always assumed it was a camera of some sort, but like the big eyeball cams from the late 90s. Yes, I remember seeing what I called "an army of skeletons" coming over a hill toward me one night. None of this ever really alarmed me (well, the skeletons were kinda creepy, needless to say), and I never felt any danger, except for the nightly Beezer attacks. Basically my relationship with the Greys is that I really don't have one, but I wouldn't bail on an opportunity to have an encounter.
Since having Internet access, I often read about the Greys and have noted that a lot of people think their intentions are far from benevolent. But many others believe the Greys are intrinsic in the advancement of intelligent life on Earth. I know most of them are referring to humans, but I'm not going to address any of that, as this isn't a misanthropy rant.
