Please accept my apologies, Eugene. I do seem to have judged you harshly and hastily. I only skimmed through enough text to convince myself you sounded like Titor. I do have to admit that I felt the "tale from the future" being presented as take-it-or-leave-it truth, whether you're seeking believers or not... it does bear enough similarity. Would it not be foolish to believe you from the beginning of your tale? There may even be speculation arising that between you and John Titor, one may be an agent of disinformation, hoping to distract and manipulate opinion. You could both be part of a different time membrane in the many-worlds scenario. As open as my mind is to possibility, I should have reserved comment until you'd progressed further. I thank you for pointing out my error. I mean, seriously, as someone who sees the possibility of someday being a cyborg brain. Living in, and controlling a spaceship from the future... who the hell am I to judge?Eugene Myers wrote:

"I do, however, believe in an unconscious conspiracy--that is, scientists suppressed certain information privately, and perhaps even without intention, because certain ideas would make their life’s work seem like bullshit."I sincerely look forward to reading the rest of what you've written, and your contributions in the near future.
SALT LAKE CITY - For more than 50 years, rancher Waldo Wilcox kept most outsiders off his land and the secret under wraps: a string of ancient settlements thousands of years old in near perfect condition.|||108868596569039677|||4200 acre Utah ranch hides 3000 year old settlement ruins
Hidden deep inside eastern Utah's nearly inaccessible Book Cliffs region, 130 miles southeast of Salt Lake City, the prehistoric villages run for 12 miles along Range Creek, where Wilcox guarded hundreds of rock art panels, cliffside granaries, pit houses and rock shelters, some exposing mummified remains of long-ago inhabitants.
The sites were occupied for at least 3,000 years until they were abandoned more than 1,000 years ago, when the Fremont people mysteriously vanished. The Fremont, a collection of hunter-gatherers and farmers, preceded more modern American Indian tribes on the Colorado Plateau.
What sets this ancient site apart from other, better-known ones in Utah, Arizona or Colorado is that it's been left virtually untouched, with arrowheads and pottery shards still covering the ground in places.
"I didn't let people go in there to destroy it," said Wilcox, 74, whose parents bought the ranch in 1951 and threw up a gate to the rugged canyon. "The less people know about this, the better."
But the secret is out after federal and state governments paid Wilcox $2.5 million for the 4,200-acre ranch, which is surrounded by wilderness study lands. The state took ownership earlier this year but hasn't decided yet how to control public access, said Kevin Conway, director of the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources.
