Last 24 Hours:

Robots from the Id (or from somewhere else)?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

In September 1964 Donald Shrum, an employee of AeroJet in Sacramento, California was, allegedly, assaulted by humanoids and/or robots while ensconced in a tree from which he was hunting with a bow and arrow.

It’s an odd tale which you can read about via these links:

And the Phantoms and Monsters site (where you will find drawings and photos, shown here, of Shrum and what he says he envisioned during his “ordeal”):


Our friend The Iron Skeptic took a swing at the account but struck out, as I see it. (A nice try but that’s about it):

Now did Shrum concoct a story? For what reason? (Such a confabulation would jeopardize his job, yes?)

(The Betty/Barney Hill “abduction” had become prominent by 1964.)

Did he have a drug or alcohol induced hallucination? Or did he actually experience what he says he did?

Both are open questions.

Are such humanoid/robot encounters part of a reality that some people experience, and why (or why not)?

Such “madness” as depicted by the Shrum happening is rife in various forms throughout history (and maybe prehistory if some cave paintings actually show weird encounters or bizarre mental configurations endemic to humankind from time immemorial).

No matter what, the Shrum tale intrigues.
