Phoenix Man Encounters TALL, SKINNY INSECTOID in Desert (VIDEO & SKETCH)

A Phoenix, Arizona man is out in the nearby desert late at night. As he sat in his truck, a tall, skinny insectoid walked up to him. Later, the incident details become more strange.

The following information was referred to me:

"It's 2015 and I was in the Southwest USA (outside of Phoenix, Arizona) in the desert camping. It was about 2am and I was still in the truck cab eating pistachios and tossing the shells out of the open window. Huge full moon behind me at about 2 o'clock in the sky I was watching it in the rearview mirror. The moon was so bright I could read by its light.

All at once a tall being walked about 6 feet behind my truck and stopped. I turned around and looked out of the opened back window. It was about 8 feet tall, very skinny, with long arms with elbows below its waist area, foot long skinny neck, oval head that had what looked like a 4-foot beard or tube hanging from its lower face. I couldn't make out the feet or hands. It was walking like it was struggling, like if you walk in a swimming pool with the resistance of the water. As it stopped it barely moved its shoulders but that freakish long neck turned the big head at me. I don't know if it saw me in the truck. I froze. it then turned its head forward and continued walking. It was bizarrely thin, like an insect. I got scared thinking it's so thin it's hungry. I took off after it passed by my truck, camping equipment in the back of my truck flying to the side of the dirt road as I drove.

I went back 4 months later in the daylight. I found the pile of pistachio shells so I knew the exact spot where I was. I saw nothing unusual. I drove around a bit, it was a nice day and found a place that looked like a good hiking spot. As I got out of the truck, maybe about 3 in the afternoon I heard diesel engines struggling to dig, like backhoes, earth movers, dump trucks dumping a load and banging the scooper to unload all the dirt, trucks backing up with the beep, beep sound but there was nothing around. I was in the middle of nowhere on a dirt road, with no other cars around for miles. I couldn't figure out where the digging noise was coming from but wondered. I got on my hands and knees and listened to the ground. It was coming from under the desert landscape. I was standing on where the digging was coming from.

As I stood up I saw two very shiny white pickup trucks facing the front of my truck, onyx black windows. they were so shiny the sun reflecting on them hurt my eyes. Driving in the desert piles of dust would be on a truck, these looked like they just came off a showroom. I got scared, I guess they saw me listening to the ground and I suppose I wasn't supposed to hear that sound. As I got back in my truck I saw two more white trucks exactly the same behind me, facing me. I drove off looking if they were following me, they weren't.

As I got to the nearest road my heart sank as there were two more of the same trucks waiting for me at the intersection, facing each way so whichever way I was going one truck would be right behind me. As I got on the road the truck behind me followed me right on my bumper. I was going 90 MPH and the truck was right behind me, the other truck then was trying to pass me, I was swerving two lanes to keep it from passing me. I came up to an exit to some buildings and decided to give it a shot and exited. At the same time, the two trucks slowed down, made a U-turn, and went back. I continued to note how shiny the two trucks were. My eyes were hurting from the sun reflecting on them. The one behind me kept upright on my bumper and the other sped up to overtake me but slowed when I swerved both lanes.

They could have taken me out in the desert and no one would have found me or my truck, but they didn't. Did they want to kill me on the road? I don't know, but I was terrified to go home thinking they'd be there, but I never saw them again and NEVER went back!

My thought is that I discovered a government installation being built, maybe for national security. So I keep that location to myself. It might be very important to keep their location unknown. My other thought. Why chase me when that giant insect-like being was walking around a few months prior about 4 miles from where I heard the digging sound? Is that location ET/Human/Government? I'm still scared stiff, not talked about it at all till lately. I reported my two sightings to MUFON. I did not tell them about the site where the digging was going on. I'm very curious what's going on out there, but, I won't return." T

DOPPELGÄNGERS: SHOULD WE FEAR THEM? | Join Us For LIVE CHAT | Questions & Answers #Doppelgänger

Have you ever met someone who looked just like you? Perhaps you’ve walked up to a person you thought you knew only to find they were a stranger. If so, you may have met a real-life doppelgänger.

What is a doppelgänger? The word comes from German meaning “double goer.” Today, it’s often used to describe two strangers who look so much alike they could be twins. Seeing a doppelgänger can be startling. That’s true whether it’s a person who looks just like you or someone who could be your friend’s twin. It’s no wonder, then, that doppelgängers are also common in frightening stories.

Many times, a doppelgänger is the double of another character. They are like the character in many ways, most often in looks. However, the things that make them different are more important. The doppelgänger often differs from the main character in the values they hold. This results in them making choices that lead them down a different path. For example, “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” by Robert Louis Stevenson. In this story, both characters share the same body. However, they are opposites, with Dr. Jekyll representing good and Mr. Hyde evil.

There is also a historical attribute to this phenomenon. President Abraham Lincoln supposedly saw his doppelgänger when he saw two faces in the mirror on the night of his first election in 1860. The second face was pale and sickly, which his wife, Mary, interpreted as a sign of death or sickness during his second term. Only a few months after his second election, Lincoln was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth.

So, what do you think a doppelgänger represents? Listen to these accounts and form your opinion.
