Real Estate Agents at work...

Well, they might have not made the grand appearance they where supposed to, but they are apparently lurking in other parts of the world, probably trying to find premium spots for their beach houses.. Istanbul being such a prime piece of real-estate, they made several appearances over there, and over a long period of time, not taking into account the widespread nature of portable video cameras.
Now, the video, aside from the hilarious translation attempt, is not the most shocking piece of evidence you can find. Anyone who has a rudimentary knowledge of UFO research can spot the problems.. Very shaky footage, no point of reference (if it was cut in editing it was a very poor decision), no action whatsoever (unless hovering in the same spot for long periods of time and then vanishing is considered action), and a general "let's make a UFO video tonight using simple household items" feeiling to it..
I could be wrong. I wish I am wrong. I wish that the luminous UFO is not a car transmission or a drainage pipe, but an actual craft piloted by something other than humans.
But, let's face it. Unless they perform a landing and takeoff near several news crews with high-def cameras, noone is going to take such stuff seriously.
Can you blame them?

The Long Count

Well, here are the facts.
Many people (getting more and more), believe that the world will end on December 21rst, 2012, or that something equally impressive will happen at that particular date. This belief is based mostly on the Mayan Long Count calendar, which, according to many, counts down to the date mentioned, and predicts the end of the world as we know it.
A good job of spreading this belief was done by the Discovery Channel and several documentaries pertaining to the end of the world, by Mayan or other Ancient sources.

After unsuccessfully trying to validate or debunk this date and the whole calendar thing (scientists are a rare breed, fiercely trying to disprove each other, using the same methods as their opponents, and usually making a big fuss about everything, except things that actually matter like, you know, the truth, or something resembling the truth), I came across a documentary about UFOs over Mexico..
Now, that was synchronicity.. UFOs caught on camera, viewed on live TV, swarms over cities, and the Ministry of Defense giving the investigation over to a reporter. And it got me thinking: Isn't Mexico part of the ancient Mayan Empire? If we buy into the whole 2012 theory, are they already here monitoring things until the great astronomical alignment of 2012 (at least that's a fact) when their buddies invade Earth, or the Great Portals open, or when Master Cthulhu devours us all?
The strange search continued with Nibiru, a subject arbitrarily connected with the whole Mayan thing, or not? having read Zecharia Sitchin's books a long time ago, I can still remember the date he specifies when the Annunaki return to claim their offspring, non on a spaceship but on a planet, Nibiru that is.
Now, when I heard some years ago about the existence of an unseen planet with a great elliptical orbit, influencing the orbits of Neptune and Pluto, proven mathematically, and crossing the solar system around 2012, I was again impressed. It's orbit was thought around 3.600 years. Like Sitchin's Nibiru. Was it Nibiru? NASA said so..
Well, they don't any more. They seem to have changed their minds. The code name of the Planet X research is not Nibiru any more, but Eris.
How apropriate. For those who don't know, Eris is the Ancient Greek Deity of dissent (and hero of R.A. Wilson's books but that's another story).
Now astronomers claim that Planet X is a different story alltogether, but remain silent to the fact of it's visit, if ever. They prefer to nuke each other over trivialities, in blogs and forums, rather than answer the simple question. How convenient.
The gigantic object spotted in the outer reaches of the Solar System somehow defies explanation, at least until it comes closer.. (!)

Too much coincidence means truth? Is absence of evidence evidence of absense? No to both.

Will something happen on December 21rst 2012? Probably not.
And my greatest fear is that if something cataclysmically great is going to happen, we are not even going to notice..

The mysterious Dark Flow and the Beta Universe

Quote from

As if the mysteries of dark matter and dark energy weren't vexing enough, another baffling cosmic puzzle has been discovered.

Patches of matter in the universe seem to be moving at very high speeds and in a uniform direction that can't be explained by any of the known gravitational forces in the observable universe. Astronomers are calling the phenomenon "dark flow."

The stuff that's pulling this matter must be outside the observable universe, researchers conclude.

When scientists talk about the observable universe, they don't just mean as far out as the eye, or even the most powerful telescope, can see. In fact there's a fundamental limit to how much of the universe we could ever observe, no matter how advanced our visual instruments. The universe is thought to have formed about 13.7 billion years ago. So even if light started travelling toward us immediately after the Big Bang, the farthest it could ever get is 13.7 billion light-years in distance. There may be parts of the universe that are farther away (we can't know how big the whole universe is), but we can't see farther than light could travel over the entire age of the universe.

......"The structures responsible for this motion have been pushed so far away by inflation, I would guesstimate they may be hundreds of billions of light years away, that we cannot see even with the deepest telescopes because the light emitted there could not have reached us in the age of the universe," Kashlinsky said in a telephone interview. "Most likely to create such a coherent flow they would have to be some very strange structures, maybe some warped space time. But this is just pure speculation."

Strange structures, warped space and time, and a region that is sucking whole clusters of galaxies, to.. where?

All this brings to mind Kenneth Grant's writings, starting with Hecate's Fountain, about a hostile Beta Universe (as opposed to our Alpha Universe). It cannot be easily transposed to science, since it is, you know, magick, but I read the article with the same old question: Have the artists, magicians and crackpots through the ages unveiled significant, majestic, life-as-you-know-it changing truths, only to be laughed at, ridiculed, alienated?

The same question popped in my head long before I read Valee's Passport to Magonia, and it refuses to go anywhere.

Would a localized inspection at the origins of this dark flow reveal the being called the Sentinel guarding the entrance to madness and Godhood?

But more importantly, when will the time come when all data and theories unite into one, all-explaining unity? I am a firm believer that, given enough time, this will come to pass. Mankind's craziest visionaries will be thought of again, this time with respect, and that will be enough..
