I found In Search of with Leonard Nimoy on Youtube recently. The nostalgia was Bittersweet.
Nimoy’s death aside, I do believe the world is better off today than in the 60’s and 70’s. Crime alone would make it so. If you think there is much crime today, you weren’t around during the 70’s.
However, that time had an…optimism…that doesn’t seem to be as present as today. Hell, we landed on the moon and were on our way outward! Back then, while young, I was interested in all the Woo. UFOs, ghosts, loch ness/Bigfoot, crystals, pyramid power, Bermuda Triangle etc etc etc etc. I didn’t really believe it was true but it was fun and there seemed to be a certain ‘feeling’ that mankind was on the verge of something. I was somewhat skeptical but …you know…maybe they will find Bigfoot soon…who knows? I was a real 60’s-70’s girl!
Then I became involved in my career and really threw myself into it.
40-50 years later I have just retired and so am regressing back to my childhood. I took a day to ‘check things out’. This was inspired by the aforementions “In Search Of”
After finding out that South America really seems to be coming along in general and isn’t the basketcase I remember I went onto Woo.
Nothing. Well, not nothing…Tabby’s star is interesting as hell and, while it is probably a natural explanation, alien civilization is still on the table. Not likely…but TANTALIZING!
In Search of could air today pretty much as is and would seem to be just as relevant as the ‘documentaries’ today.
Nothing? Nothing?! Not one damn thing has something tantalizing? (I know it couldn’t be proved or even I would have heard of it). This is disheartening. The world seems to be really as mundane as I feared it to be.
I mean KILLER BEES turned out to be nothing forchrissake! That was the terror of the 70’s!!
So, I ask. Is there nothing…no tantalizing (meaning still probably not true but can’t be just thrown out) evidence of ANYTHING from In Search of?
