I’m calling myself Arcanus, which means “occult” in Latin, on this forum because I once got fascinated by parapsychology, cryptozoology and medieval mysticism which I completely outgrew after meeting Erich von Daniken at a conference near my home town. If that sounds strange to some, it’s because it’s strange. Maybe I found him to be a rather unpleasant character to talk to, but in reality I decided to look more thoroughly into the subject matter back then which I, ultimately, did, and haven’t regretted it. I became intrigued by rational thought and have stuck with it ever since. So far, so good… I am now here.
