Case File Information

By Messy Nessy Chic

You know why the internet is awesome? Because you can share the experience of someone discovering a mysterious treasure. Reddit user TramStopDan documented and shared his recent experience of unlocking and discovering the contents of a box which his friend found discarded on the street next to the trash. When he managed to open it, Dan found a mind-boggling collection of posters, illustrations, text, maps, technical drawings and personal belongings.

Speculating on the original owner of the case, Dan writes: “Clearly something happened to this guy that was very memorable. It measures roughly 29″ by 38″ and almost all the drawings are very large… It appears that he was making a diorama/tabletop display. (Why? I have no idea). There are numbered parts and instructions/explanations.”

So let’s take a peek at what he found… check out the photo montage above.

One Reddit commenter had this theory to add:

Apparently the guy went slightly insane over finding extraterrestrials in the bible. He was obsessed with “living creatures” described in Ezekiel 10 that are described as having four faces: “the first face was the face of a cherub, and the second face was the face of a man, and the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle.” I guess he really wanted for that to be an alien encounter.

Also found in the briefcase was this technical drawing that looks like a patent application, quite large and very detailed. Dan looked but could not find any registered patent of this design.

So there’s your daily dose of “what the heck am I looking at?!”

It’s amazing, as well as pretty sad however, to see what people will just throw away. Maybe the author of the box’s contents isn’t around anymore, but his secret world is now forever preserved. And that’s why the internet is so great.

    Now THIS is a an awesome find!

    That is some seriously wild stuff. All obviously pre-internet efforts and like he/she…it, was trying to put pieces together of where they were in time and space as opposed to just trying to create maps to sell or share. We live on this tiny, little layer of balanced information and sanity – The truth is, things like are a reminder of why disclosure may never happen willingly. I believe the truth of God is more than any human brain can fathom and the truth of alien life and visitations fit that description as well. (One not cancelling out the other.)
