of an Alien Abduction
(A Conversation with Sun Ra)
I 've been in different time frames, [outside] the division of time that man has. He lives in a time zone. I've been outside of a time zone. That makes a difference, because, outside, you don't pay any attention to what's happening, because you know it doesn't matter.
But you occasionally step inside?
Yes, and you have to adjust yourself to the fact that you're in a time zone.
When did you first become aware that you had a special destiny?
I always knew I was different. I came from somewhere else. It took me a long time to figure this world out because I was thinking about where I came from.
How old were you when you realized all of this?
About seven years old. They kept talking about God. In the churches, my grandmother. But I never could understand if Jesus died to save people, why people still have to die. That seemed ignorant to me. That's how I felt as a child, and I never changed.
