Yes, another example --like the road encounters, where objects display themselves to civilians and then take off. Great tactic, and the objects are always in control. Long-term contact without a tipping point. Most of the encounters here are either road encounters or small isolated group encounters --the two tactics for civilians.
I like how he talked about his instinct telling him to stay back. Makes me wonder if it was his instinct or an actual telepathic encounter. I have that "instinct" that he refers to. I call it my inner voice.
