Back in 2018 I started reading a lot of books about UFOs, and alien abductions. I had always been interested in the subject, but I developed a real deep desire to understand more. Looking back this was probably my sub-conscious mind wanting to escape my own reality at the time. Being abducted, bizarrely seemed like an attractive proposition even after reading about the horrors some abductees were subjected to.
This album along with part 2, is loosely based on the Close Encounters scale developed by J. Allen Hynek back in the 1970's. The scale has 7 kinds.
- Visual sightings of an unidentified flying object, seemingly less than 500 feet (150 m) away
- A UFO event in which a physical effect
- UFO encounters in which an animated entity is present
- Alien abduction
- A UFO event that involves direct communication between aliens and humans
- Death of a human or animal associated with a UFO sighting
- The creation of a human/alien hybrid
The original concept was to have a song per kind, but as the writing got under way more ideas started to develop I ended up with too many songs. The link to the scale is still there, but not in the right order but it is there...believe me :)
