(late) Gifts for the Paranormal Weirdo..

Some smart, some lame. The highlights include Ghost-Hunting Equipment from the aptly named ghost-mart.com/ (WTF!), as well as a piece of Software called Paratracker - Paranormal Case Management Software. According to the vendor, it includes images, sounds, videos, even a Google Map connection for Paranormal locales. Unfortunately there is no demo version, so if anyone was thinking of buying me a present, here's your chance (and a cheap one at that).
The only book in the list is called The Mothman's Photographer II,
witch sounds like the usual exploitation follow-up to a popular subject, but after reading some reviews, I started thinking that meybe there's more to it than that.
This guy sums it up with:
The Mothman's Photographer II is a fantastically strange trip into a world without rules, where just about anything goes, and where convention is thrown out of the window. But it works - and it works very well.
Surely it will make it to my Wish List.

So for those of you who have not gone present-shopping yet, or did not get what they asked Santa, here's the list to present to your equally weird family (pictured above).

Another secret(!) report on Human-ET contact

Betty Hill Map

In one of those WTF posts on UFO Digest comes the highly confidential (?) info on a meeting between aliens from the Zeta Reticuli Galaxy (pictured above on a Betty Hill sketch) and delegations from several countries. Te meeting allegedly took place on November 12th 2009, on a remote island in the Pacific, building on contacts originating in the 40’s and involving technology gifts from the aliens (What else?)

Now, I do not trust anonymous sources with huge disclosure. I mean, seriously, WTF? I do not know where to begin here.

So Instead, I will keep silent. More of the craziness, picture-free of course, on serpo.org

If any of this is proven to be true I will feel very stupid.

Letter from Nicola Tesla


To the American Red Cross, New York City.
The retrospect is glorious, the prospect inspiring: Much might be said of both. But one idea dominates my mind. This - my best, my dearest - is for your noble cause.
I have observed electrical actions, which have appeared inexplicable. Faint and uncertain though they were, they have given me a deep conviction and foreknowledge that are ere long all human beings on this globe, as one, will turn their eyes to the firmament above, with feelings of love and reverence, thrilled by the glad news: "Brethren! We have a message from another world, unknown and remote. It reads: one… two… three…"

Buried Secrets of the Pyramids (again)


Andrew Collins has a new book out, called Beneath the Pyramids. Nothing new there. He has published several books, and I have not read a single one of them. They seem interesting, but not quite enough to spend money on them. So why mention it?
Well, the interview he gave to Brent Raynes triggered my interest.

The new book is apparently about a discovery he made, along with his wife, of an underground system of caves in the Giza Plateau.
Now, how can you discover anything new on the Giza Plateau? I mean, seriously.. The most excavated part of the Planet and..
no wait. It is the most visited part of the planet. But excavations? I think the last one was around the middle of the previous century.
But still.. How come no one had found it? Or had they? The infamous watchdog of Egypt, Dr Hawass, denies the existence of caves in the Bird Tomb, as it called. But Collins has hundreds of photographs and video, and states that they went at least 100 yards in various passages before oxygen became scarce. Now it becomes interesting, right? Hawass has a reputation of trying to suppress any and all investigations leading to honest-to-god paranormal findings and ancient secrets, preferably tied to ancient astronauts, tech and gods. He is the man who stopped the investigation on the strange wooden door in the Great Pyramid back in the nineties, only to resume it in secret, as is reported here (bottom of the page).
Anyway, back to Collins, who claims that the cave complex he found could be the burial place of Hermes Trismegistus and his Emerald Tablet, the Holy Grail of Alchemists. You know, coal into gold and Immortality. (So how come Hermes died?)

I have no way of confirming or debunking any claim, but a good cave-hollow-earth-ancient secrets-paranormal-conspiracy-under-your-very-eyes story just makes my day..

H1N1 swine flu vaccine – Conspiracy time

After watching another video dealing with the Swine Flu Vaccine Conspiracy, I just couldn’t resist a comment, now that the vaccine is the talk of the world. 
I am a sucker for conspiracy. We’ve established that. An old conspiratorial rule is that if you search hard enough, you will find evidence to support any and all conspiracies. The new aspect of this is that if you search Youtube hard enough, you will find videos to support any and all conspiracies.
The above video is one of many, but the sensationalist-telemarketing style of it makes it easier to watch, and maybe draw some conclusions before paranoia sets in.

Known facts so far: The H1N1 vaccine indeed seems to be a money-making opportunity grabbed by the pharmaceutical companies, and aided by the World Health Organization. (profit involved)
The Swine Flu is milder than regular flu, as proven by winter in Australia, but fear and panic is a lot more dangerous.
And last but nor least: People believe what they read first, what they are told second. If information is contradictory, they panic and blame the government.
The above docu-montage displays the usual array of mad activists, religious fanatics, weird people with PhD attached to their name and some not so weird. Some even make valid points against the vaccine.

Now for something less noisy:

This has some interesting facts: I was especially impressed that in the USA you cannot sue the companies if you die as a result of the vaccine (!). But the most impressive one of all is the vaccination-cancer connection back in 1909..

I cannot reach a conclusion here as easily as others. There is evidence on both sides, and both have been visibly (if you are not brain-dead) tampered with. It’s what I cannot see that scares me. The subtext. What each one stands to gain. What we have to lose..
The old X-Files line comes to mind: Trust No One.
It sounds pretty healthy to me in this day and age.

Ice on the Moon, fish on Europa (?)


Well, Nasa has officially announced that ice does exist on the Moon. Everyone expected it but now it’s official.

In another optimistic but nevertheless well-substantiated announce-ment, Jupiter’s moon Europa has enough oxygen in its oceans to support 3 million tons of fish, if indeed fish exist on Europa. That’s a lot of fish. Just wait till humans build a colony up there, and the (hypothetical) fish will not seem as many…

Thank you Crop Circle creators, whoever you are…


Photo and copyright Lucy Pringle

Well, taking into account the apparent solving of the above crop circle, witch seems to be a visual representation of pi, you know, circles and stuff, and watching yet another documentary on the subject, I had an interesting thought:

The creators of the crop circles, whoever they are, aliens, situationist artists, mathematicians on acid, have obviously succeeded in their goal: THEY HAVE BROADENED THE PUBLIC CONCIENCE TO ACCOMODATE THE UNKNOWN.
Now that seems kind of obvious, but think about that kind of stuff –UFOs, aliens, fairies, messages from elsewhere, parallel dimensions -  twenty years ago. It was all fringe, untouched by “mainstream” science, talked about in little groups of nerdy-looking people in shady cafes.. (I should know).
Now look at this. UFOs and crop circles are discussed in mainstream media and respectable universities conduct the investigations with state funding. Now that’s change!
It appears that the in-your-face approach of crop circles has done wonders for the human open-mindedness, what hundreds of books and thousands of lectures, apparently could not do.. The crop circles are there, huge, ubiquitous, and apparently the product of a major intelligence. Barring the chance of stoned kangaroos designing them, it appears that the effort was a well orchestrated one, perfectly executed, and the ideal prelude to an Unveiling of sorts.
The world is ready now, right?

Vampire Hunting Kits - great Christmas presents!


I just couldn’t resist.. This article in LAweekly has a list of the Vampire Hunting Kits out there, most of them going for outrageous amounts of money. There are those that are modern, Steampunk artistic creations and there are those that are old, matter-of-fact items, made in an era that supported the sale of such things outside the circle of artists.
You can also find Vampire-Werewolf combos (!) and more!
Read their stories and remember: I could really use one of these for Christmas. :)
You really never know when the world gets filled with fanged blood suckers coming after you.

Extraterrestrial Life Official Soon (?)

Sounds like another case of wishful thinking.. This article on UFOdigest, this piece on The Examiner and this one are all written by the same man, Michael E. Salla, Ph.D, the founder of exopolitics.org and author of Exopolitics: Political Implications of the Extraterrestrial Presence (Dandelion Books, 2004), still in print as you can see on the Amazon widget on the left..
image Salla is described as a pioneer in the development of Exopolitics, namely the research of the implications of extraterrestrial contact and presence. I haven’t read it but it sounds interesting, if a little wacky, since “He cites evidence of as many as seventeen different extraterrestrial civilizations currently interacting with humanity in a variety of ways, with a number of other civilizations simply monitoring the Earth. “ I could be wrong and he could be legit, but I imagine I would have heard of him before now if that was the case. I am going to get the book anyway though.
Now to his case for imminent disclosure of ET relations. In his article he claims that a reliable source informed two of his colleagues of a secret UN meeting that took place on February 12, 2008, at the New York offices of the United Nations. A secret UFO group within the UN supposedly alarmed by the number of UFO sightings, crop circles and cover-up speculation, advised the interested nations to reveal all contact and knowledge of ET life by 2013, concluding that the repercussions will not be as severe as was once feared.
2013? Well, that’s after the world ends, right?
Now Dr Salla’s sources tell him that disclosure will occur by the end of 2009! That’s correct, in a couple of months.
The article attaches a special significance to President Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize, and theorizes that his acceptance on December 10 may be a perfect opportunity to announce that we are not alone..
While his sources are a bit flaky to say the least (Hoagland? Seriously?), he manages to make some good points: Obama has gained worldwide acceptance and legitimacy not only by the Nobel Prize but by his efforts to give more power to the UN, clear up the corrupt parts of his country, namely the military, and minimize conflict while promoting peace.
All that does not prove a damn thing, but if such a world-changing, paradigm-shifting disclosure was ever to be made, Obama is the most likely candidate, and the time is now more than ever.
Far chance but we’ll know in a couple of months, won’t we?

Doomsday Obsession and the Carter Catastrophe

Doomsday Clock past Midnight

It is a fact that in the last 20 or so years we have been bombarded with Doomsday scenarios, usually handed down by our ancestors and revived with modern data. Not limited to that, several modern variations emerged, some serious, some wacky and religion-oriented.
The 2012 Mayan Calendar Doomsday scenario is just around the corner, with Hollywood already capitalizing on the anticipation, as it tried to do on the Millennium Doomsday-Y2K craze. Things are gearing up..

Let’s see what the actual Mayans have to say about that, their descendants, that is.
In this photo taken Oct. 3, 2009, Guatemalan Mayan Indian elder ...
Apolinario Chile Pixtun is a Mayan elder from Guatemala. To him, there is no catastrophe waiting at the end of the Mayan Calendar, Dec 21, 2012. The whole Doomsday concept is a Western, not Mayan idea.
In his words : "I came back from England last year and, man, they had me fed up with this stuff."
Several other scholars agree that contemporary Mayans have no beliefs of an impending End-of-World event, but, then again, maybe their ancestors did..

The Mayan time period that ends on Dec 21 2012, happens to coincide with an astronomical alignment that happens every 25.800 years (!). At that date the sun will rise and appear to be at the exact same spot as the center of our Milky Way galaxy… At the exact morning of the exact day, when the sacred, 13th Baktun ends. The Baktuns, 394 year time-periods of the Mayans, started on 3.114 BC and end on, well, you know when…

To finish the Mayan case, here comes Monument Six. A stone tablet discovered in the 60’s, looted and partially destroyed by paving equipment, it contains the date 2012 and..

..The inscription describes something that is supposed to occur in 2012 involving Bolon Yokte, a mysterious Mayan god associated with both war and creation… Archaeologist Guillermo Bernal of Mexico's National Autonomous University interprets the last eroded glyphs as maybe saying, "He will descend from the sky."

The Mayans surely predicted stuff fro 2012, but not the End of Days, since other inscriptions refer to dates far exceeding 2012, as far as 4772. Not that it proves anything, but it sounds strangely reassuring.

Now let’s move on to modern prophets of Doom, namely Brandon Carter, an Australian physicist who, in 1983, proposed the Doomsday Argument (DA), also called the Carter Catastrophe. The probabilistic argument it makes is that it can predict the end of the human species just by calculating how many humans have been born thus far, and the probability of an extinction level event…
The math is a bit obscure, but the point I am trying to make is that Doomsday as a concept is finely engraved in our genes, thought patterns, you name it. The bottom line is that WE WANT SOMETHING TO HAPPEN. As simple as that.
Overpopulation, hunger, resources, climate, the little lemming colony knows that something is wrong, and is desperately trying to find a cliff..

What the overfed Prophets of Doom don’t realize is that their predictions are already old news, and that Doomsday is Happening. It will not come in tidal waves or tectonic plate movements, not just yet.

We as a species will continue to predict that which is already upon us, not even realizing 1% of the implications.
As this article says, “Doomsday is already upon us; we haven’t gotten to the nasty bits, just yet.”
The Change is slow, and not easily perceived by the lemming colony, except maybe as a little restlessness.  The cliff is forming.

Structure on the Moon (my ass)

This video is too precious not to share, at least with those who haven’t seen it since it seems to be 2 years old.

Overlooking the obvious comments, wouldn’t it be cool if it where real? This is art. It really is. (not taking into account the extreme glow added in post to hide the fact that it was filmed on an abandoned factory on earth).

I think I want to start a whole Fake Video Movement from scratch, just to see what people will think of. And of course I want to make some of my own. Stay tuned.

Genius and Madness – Not so far apart..


Well, in the fine tradition of Science, it finally catches up with another fact that, well, everyone new and understood since time immemorial: There is a fine line between genius and insanity.

Psychologists have discovered that creative people have a gene in common which is also linked to psychosis and depression.
They believe that the findings could explain why "geniuses" like Vincent van Gogh and Sylvia Plath displayed such destructive behavior.
The gene, which is called neuregulin 1, plays a role in brain development but a variant of it is also associated with mental illnesses like schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

Now that’s LATE.. I mean, will science ever find a way to keep up?
And will further advances be made by mad scientists? And I don’t mean slightly eccentric ones. I mean screaming-foaming-at-the-mouth-berserk geniuses locked up in high security facilities (not asylums, that’s not politically correct). And will they research themselves? I have to stop now.This is getting too weird..

First attempt of “Contact Earthlings” failed


All remaining (alive) crew, report back to mothership. Mission abort.

Well, metro.co.uk reports of a “Gollum-like monster emerging from a lake”, only to be stoned to death by teenagers. Do you know what this will do to our Intergalactic PR?

Please refer to The Subanthropic Principle article for more proof that we will NEVER make contact with anyone. And I mean anyone..

Refer to the Independence Day movie for revenge scenarios…

Now, seriously, how stupid can you be? Even for a teenager..

On the biology of this, scientists will take samples from the mangled carcass, but they assume it is some kind of mutant sloth (!!!).

They’re made out of meat!



And now a great follow-up to the last post: The great short story by Terry Bison on film, funny and slightly creepy. This is great (I think I already said that),  and watch it while it lasts.  Remember: Youtube is maintained by meat!

The Subanthropic Principle

Well, one of the foundations of modern UFOlogy is the Fermi Paradox.
What it basically says is that if the number of predicted alien civilizations is near correct, and if alien life is as common to our galaxy as assumed, then it makes no sense that someone has not made contact, either by probe or in person..

They haven’t? Are we sure?
Spanish physicist Beatriz Gato-Rivera published a paper in 2003 called Brane Worlds, the Subanthropic Principle and the Undetectability Conjecture. (PDF link on the right column). Here’s a tasty bit:

Do mountain gorillas know that their “civilization” is embedded in a larger civilization corresponding to a much more evolved and intelligent species than themselves? Do they know that they are a protected species inhabiting a natural reserve in a country inside the African continent of planet Earth? The answer to these questions is certainly no, they do not know anything about our social structure, our countries, borders, religions, politics, ..... nor even about our villages and cities, except perhaps for those individuals living in a zoo, or adopted as pets.
In the same way, the human civilization of planet Earth could be immersed in a much larger civilization unknowingly, corresponding to much more evolved and intelligent species than ourselves.
In this situation, the answer to the usual remark “if there are advanced extraterrestrials around, why they do not contact us openly and officialy and teach us their science and technology?” seems obvious. Would any country in this planet send an official delegation to the mountain gorilla territory to introduce themselves “openly and officially” to the gorilla authorities? Would they shake hands, make agreements and exchange signatures with the dominant males? About teaching us their science and technology, who would volunteer to teach physics, mathematics and engineering to a bunch of gorillas? In addition one has to take into account the limits of the brain capabilities, independently of the culture or education.

The Subanthropic Principle: We are not typical among the intelligent observers from the Universe. Typical civilizations of typical galaxies would be hundreds of thousands, or millions, of years more evolved than ours and, consequently, typical intelligent observers would be orders of magnitude more intelligent than us.

More intelligent, or, if I may add, radically different, although I am not sure those two are conflicting. Do we study “inferior” beings? Yes. Do we try to “help” them by changing their lives and introducing them to ours? No. Not by lack of will. It simply cannot be done.

Would we know if we where being watched? DO WE KNOW? Officially not. Some people know. And it’s not easy. Watched by whom? Watched to what purpose? Now that’s a brain twister. Trying to imagine the purpose of virtually invisible beings riding virtually invisible and all-powerful crafts (albeit rather prone to malfunction) who are rumored to perform strange and meaningless experiments on people widely regarded as crazy…

I suddenly got a little depressed writing this. No chance of finding out even a little slice of truth? I hope not. I will not. Concede, that is..

The locked Underground

Richard Shaver

Fate magazine has a nice overview of the Shaver Mystery along with some info on the Blowing Cave affair and the Wight Manuscript, both of which I have always dismissed as a publicity hoax. But now, wiser and older (…) I seem to be having second thoughts..

As I have stated before, I have found that the Underground seems to resist exploration, if it is a physical reality at all.. The mythical quality of such stories now, suddenly, seems consistent enough to warrant thoughts, correlations, hypotheses.
Having been a few days ago in a cave, the cave of Sfendonis in Crete, I came across it’s strange story: For years it has been used as a pen for livestock, mainly goats. From time to time a goat would disappear. Simple enough you say. Someone stole it.. Well, the disappearances happened near a particular opening in the cave wall. The people of the nearby village thought the cave was strange, and that you should avoid going near that opening. There where local legends that said that sometimes sparks occurred between visitors and the cave floor, and that the floor had some kind of “energy” to it. Then a child vanished into the cave. It was never found. How could that be, in a cave mapped and well known? The cave now is restricted, visitors allowed to visit only one third of its area “for safety reasons”, although is is no more dangerous than other caves. The visitors walk on a metal walkway 1.5 meters from the cave floor, and always accompanied by a “guide”, who clearly has nothing to say about the cave other than some minor Neolithic findings.
Do you see a pattern here? A secret? A cover-up?
Maybe, maybe not. After all it is a mapped, documented cave.

The Earth may not be hollow, after all, but human knowledge of the finer aspects of the universe is. In a big, gaping way..

John Hughes is no more


John Hughes died today of a heart attack, age 59.

He was the Director of many 80’s teen movies like Pretty in Pink, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and, my personal favorite, The Breakfast Club.

Now, before you go “Huh? what does that have to do with anything, well, paranormal”. let me explain.
Hughes made movies far from the mainstream of the time, bringing to the spotlight – and with huge success – teenagers that where weird, outspoken, intelligent, outcasts, misfits. Real People.

He changed the genre, thus changing our perceptions forever. The outcasts became hip all over again years after the Bohemians. They showed you can be weird and charming and change the world and…
You see where I am going with this. Anything can happen, and it happens. All the time. If you see any of his movies that feeling stays with you for days. As a filmmaker all I can say is Respect…

What? You are not a misfit? What the hell are you doing reading a blog called Terra Incognita? You know it deals with The Paranormal, right? You should navigate away from here before someone finds out and they start calling you weird..

Well, the change his movies brought was not permanent, as in this age of shallowness the clueless are again hot. But then again, Anything can happen, right?

“I always preferred to hang out with the outcasts, ’cause they were cooler; they had better taste in music, for one thing, I guess because they had more time to develop one with the lack of social interaction they had!” ~John Hughes

A useful guide to world Domination


Institute for the Future director Alex Soojung-Kim Pang wrote a damn funny piece on how to rule the world and the simple rules to accomplish it.

As a longstanding member of the Evil Geniuses For A Better Tomorrow movement, I declare his proposals interesting and worth following, albeit a bit childish. I mean, I knew all that since the day I was born, and I’m never wrong, ok?
Now, pay attention and follow the following advice religiously. If you are successful I will contact you. Connection out.

The rules:

Be certain, not right
Claim to be an expert: it makes people’s brains hurt
No expertise, no problem
One simple idea may be one too many
Get prizes for being outrageous
There’s a success hiding in every failure
Don’t remember your failures. No one else will

Life Form in sewer! (or hoax)

Now this is disgusting.. I don’t know if it is real, but it has six million viewings, and thousands of blogs discussing it’s origins. Some suggested that they are mutated worms, while others where sure that it was a micro camera inside a human orifice (ouch!)
If it is a hoax, it is one of the best I've seen. Seamless.
Those sewers in the States.. I mean, alligators in the 70’s, and now this. What’s next? Godzilla seems more and more plausible.

Dreams walk among us


Have you noticed the winds picking up? They are carrying voices, and, sometimes, dreams. They are not easy to make sense of, in the noise of, well, us.
HPL heard them. Archibald McLeish was haunted by them. The few among us that are permanently lost can see them, as fire walks with them. You get that tingling in your stomach, that grip in your gut, and you know that there’s something real, lurking in your peripheral vision, content in not being seen, patient, waiting .
Do not tag it as evil, or good. The fear you feel is from ignorance, and the genetic fear of the unknown.
The winds are picking up, and fewer people are noticing.

Mile-wide UFO seen by pilot and passengers


A very recent (June)  sighting of a massive UFO over the Channel Islands in the UK.
The news report taken from here.

One of the largest UFOs ever seen has been observed by the crew and passengers of an airliner over the Channel Islands.

An official air-miss report on the incident several weeks ago appears in Pilot magazine.

Aurigny Airlines captain Ray Bowyer, 50, flying close to Alderney first spotted the object, described as "a cigar-shaped brilliant white light".

As the plane got closer the captain viewed it through binoculars and said: "It was a very sharp, thin yellow object with a green area.

"It was 2,000ft up and stationary. I thought it was about 10 miles away, although I later realised it was approximately 40 miles from us. At first, I thought it was the size of a [Boeing] 737.

"But it must have been much bigger because of how far away it was. It could have been as much as a mile wide."

Continuing his approach to Guernsey, Bowyer then spied a "second identical object further to the west".

He said: "It was exactly the same but looked smaller because it was further away. It was closer to Guernsey. I can't explain it. This was clearly visual for about nine minutes.

"I'm certainly not saying that it was something of another world. All I'm saying is that I have never seen anything like it before in all my years of flying."

The sightings were confirmed by passengers Kate and John Russell. John, 74, said: "I saw an orange light. It was like an elongated oval."

The sightings were also confirmed by an unnamed pilot with the Blue Islands airline.

The Civil Aviation Authority safety notice states that a Tri-Lander aircraft flying close to Alderney spotted the object.

"Certain parts of the report have not been published. I cannot say why," said a senior CAA source.

Earlier this year, however, the MOD declared its intentions to open its UFO files to the public.

Below a brief interview with the pilot.

And all this as 2009 has seen a huge increase in sightings and reports of UFOs, getting easier to capture them with cell phones being one interpretaion.
The other interpretation, well, it’s tricky. I mean it is easy to arbitrarily predict invasion scenarios and stuff, especially when the objects in question have used the same hide-and-seek technique for decades now. Apparently being able to slip in and out of invisibility (or dimensions) comes in handy when you want to peek-a-boo the natives. This will lead them to more awareness of the phenomenon, which in turn will lead to popularization, stupid movies, t-shirts and paranoids, thus stripping of power the original concept.
I mean Operation Trojan Horse was written many years ago, and I still have not seen them hovering defiantly over us, carrying out their sinister plans..

Hmmm. Things are usually trickier than they seem, and this deserves some fresh thoughts and paradigms. Soon…

Roswell CSI inconclusive


Well, for those of you who wondered what happened to the Sci-Fi Channel’s research into the Roswell crash site (alleged), here’s some new info:

NBC bought the Sci-Fi Channel and cancelled further Roswell episodes, as well as the analysis of the artifacts recovered. (conspiracy!, conspiracy!).
Check out the whole story here.
And a detailed look at the finds themselves, awaiting patiently to be analyzed is at http://alejandrotrojas.blogspot.com/2009/06/2002-material-synopsis-by-dr-bill.html

Be warned though: they don’t appear to be anything other than random garbage fragments, assuming they even got the crash site right. But then again, appearances can be deceiving, and they often are.. Let’s see. Patience we have. Lots of it.

Shape memory metal direct from Roswell


Incredible series of articles by Anthony Bragalia, who uses a highly unorthodox method of reasearch. It is so simple it makes sense: Reverse engineering of information.

He starts with nitinol, a nickel-titanium alloy which has shape memory properties, meaning it has the tendency to retain a memory of it’s original shape, and return to it after heat is applied. Nasa also announced a while back that research is being conducted about healing properties of Nitinol, which could lead to self-healing spaceships and, why not, ground vehicles. Wow.

Well, Bragalia reserched the origins of the amazing metal and it has all lead him, well, to the Roswell Crash in 1947!

He documents the spike in titanium research following 1947, he follows the paper trail of assigned research that abruptly stops in Roswell..

Even the alleged inventors of Nitinol admit that they received research directives and documents from various agencies, not knowing where the discovery originated, but being damn close to Wright-Patterson Air-Force Base, the base that supposedly handles the Roswell debris.

Very weird story but a damn good piece of research, and it makes you think about lots of things.

Here’s the last part of the article, and on the sidebar you will find links to the first two installments. Worth a read and much more.

Stoned wallabies make crop circles


Without a comment. This is just too weird to contemplate.

Australian wallabies are eating opium poppies and creating crop circles as they hop around "as high as a kite", a government official has said.

Lara Giddings, the attorney general for the island state of Tasmania, said the kangaroo-like marsupials were getting into poppy fields grown for medicine.

She was reporting to a parliamentary hearing on security for poppy crops.

Australia supplies about 50% of the world's legally-grown opium used to make morphine and other painkillers.

We have a problem with wallabies entering poppy fields, getting as high as a kite and going around in circles. Then they crash

Lara Giddings, government official

"The one interesting bit that I found recently in one of my briefs on the poppy industry was that we have a problem with wallabies entering poppy fields, getting as high as a kite and going around in circles," Lara Giddings told the hearing.

"Then they crash," she added. "We see crop circles in the poppy industry from wallabies that are high."


And to think this is from the BBC..

UFO conspiracy hacker fights to stay free


Gary Mckinnon is a British hacker who, for those that are not familiar with his case, hacked into the American Pentagon and NASA computers in 2001, trying to uncover evidence of a UFO cover-up. He was arrested in the UK and has been fighting ever since to avoid extradition to the United States, where he is facing really long jail times. This time his defense in High Court is that he ha Asperger’s Syndrome, a mild for of autism, and that extradition would destroy him psychologically.
His fight over the years has attracted much attention and support from various groups and individuals, partly because of the fierceness of prosecution by the American Government, in a case where essentially no harm was done, and certainly no money changed hands. The US authorities claim that he caused damages of over 1 million dollars to computer systems in an attempt to justify their definition of McKinnon as a terrorist.

He has a different story. Watch the interview below where he describes what he found (and lost) among them photos of UFOs, documents and projects about space craft reverse engineering and free energy to name a few. Now that’s a reason to hunt him down. But then again he didn’t manage to save anything..
Maybe they want to know what else he saw? .. Perhaps he missed the most important documents, but they cannot just take his word for it, can they?

Crop circles get iconic


If you thought crop-circle activity had stopped, simply because it doesn’t make the news anymore, here’s a good one. A huge Jellyfish 600ft (200 meters) in length, appeared in afield in Kingstone Coombes, Oxfordshire, the UK. Here’s the story.

imageThis somewhat smaller dragonfly appeared in Yatesbury, Wiltshire. Only 150ft, but nevertheless complex and beautiful. Story here.

Lots more are appearing each day, making hoax talk even more cautious, unless many many well-organized and well-funded groups have taken it upon themselves to create a situationist haven in the UK (and most of the world for that matter).

What is the alternative? What if a sentient existence parallel to ours is trying to make contact the only way possible through dimensions? What if seeing that abstract mathematical and fractal patterns failed to attract attention, turned its iconography to more mundane, but universal themes? (the jellyfish morphology is a favorite one of alien biologists, considering it the most versatile for most environments in the future)
I am thinking desperate attempts to contact someone who just cannot see a pattern, like someone trapped in a basement, banging Morse code on steel pipes, hoping someone on the outside will recognize the obsolete communication method, and not discard it as pipes banging.
Just some fantasizing on my part, disguised as creative thinking.
But, what if?

Here's a nice video to sum it all up

Underground City of Giants – Old News


I just cannot resist a good underground story. This is old, back from 1885, but good stuff.

A transcription, since the original pdf is kind of warped, and not that easy to read.


St. Louis, Mo., April 8 - The city of Moberly, Mo. is stirred up over the discovery of a wonderful buried city, which was discovered at the bottom of a coal shaft, 360 feet deep, which was being sunk near the city. A hard and thick stratum of lava arches in the buried city. the streets of which are regularly laid out and inclosed by walls of stone, which is cut and dressed in a fairly good, although rude, style of masonry. A hall 30 by 160 feet was discovered, wherein were stone benches and tools of all descriptions for mechanical service. Further search disclose statues and images made of a composition closely resembling bronze, lacking lustre. A stone fountain was found, situated in a wide court or street, and from it a stream of perfectly pure water was flowing, which was found to be strongly impregnated with lime. Lying beside the foundation were portions of the skeleton of a human being. The bones of the leg measured, the femur four and one-half feet, the tibia four feet and three inches, showing that when alive the figure was three times the size of an ordinary man, and possessed of a wonderful muscular power and quickness. The head bones had separated in two places, the sagittal and the caronal sutures having been destroyed. The implements found embrace bronze and flint knives, stone and granite hammers, metallic saws of rude workmanship, but proved metal, and others of similar character; they are not so highly polished, nor so accurately made as those now finished by our best mechanics, but they show skill and an evidence of an advanced civilization that are very wonderful. The facts above given are vouched for by Mr. David Coates, the Recorder of the city of Moberly and Mr. George Keating, city Marshal who were of the exploring party. A further extended search will be made in a day or two.

Open your mind sufficiently…

and people will throw garbage in it…

Well this otherwise creepy video makes some good points about basic priciples of research, pointing out flaws in thinking that have earned the Paranormal plenty of ridicule. Most of us have fallen in one of these mind-traps, one way or another..

But the graphics.. Seriously creepy..

Apocalypse revisited: 2012 persists..


Well, it seems that one way or another the world as we know it ends in 2012. Be it a meteor strike, an Alien invasion or, as a group of NASA researchers have pointed out, a huge wave of Intense solar flares to erupt in 2012, practically destroying the world's electromagnetic grid and Information Systems. This Wired article even has a Q&A with the CEO of an “electromagnetic damage consulting company” (WTF?)..

After reports that solar flares have been slowing down for the past months, a phenomenon which could lead to a mini Ice Age, the exact opposite of the said phenomenon threatens our hard-earned peace of mind. Or the semblance of one.

Interesting times are coming. I hope..

J.G. Ballard and the Future


James Graham Ballard died a few days ago, one of the greats of the New Wave of Science Fiction, and a great dystopian writer.

Here’s a quote that pretty much sums up the only thing to fear about the Future:


I would sum up my fear about the future in one word: boring. And that’s my one fear: that everything has happened; nothing exciting or new or interesting is ever going to happen again… the future is just going to be a vast, conforming suburb of the soul.

I think about that vast, conforming suburb of the soul, and it chills me to the bone..

New kind of Aliens, or?..

Two separate videos have surfaced by way of Whitley Strieber showing what appear to be stick-figure-like humanoid forms, and I am using the word humanoid in a liberal sense.
The first one shows footage from Fresno, California, and the other one from Santa Rosa de Quives in Peru.

No that’s weird. If this isn’t some traffic inducing – meme generating hoax, then.. WTF?

The Mystery of the Elongated Skulls

The Net is abuzz with the Elongated Skulls mystery, a case almost ten years old, ever since they where discovered in the Siberian city of Omsk during archaeological excavations in burial mounds.

And the story is even older than that, ever since the same kind of deformity was observed by researchers during the 90’s on skulls found in Peru.

In a 1995 photograph by Robert Connoly the skull is compared to a normal human skull. Also, anthropological findings on this skull suggest human as well as Neanderthal characteristics, labeling in an impossibility, since Neanderthals did not inhabit South America.


That fact alone makes a strong case against mainstream archaeology claims that the skulls where the result of a ceremonial head-binding since infancy. Furthermore, some African tribes (Mangbetu, Zande) practice head-binding with very different results.

And, now, to the Ancient Connection: Besides Peru, Mexico and Russia, the elongated skulls where first observed in depictions of members of the eighteenth Royal dynasty of Egypt (Nefertiti, Akhenaton and Tut being some of it’s most renowned members).
At first archaeologists believed the elongated skull to be an artists depiction of divinity traits, but that soon proved to be otherwise when the mummies where examined.


The elongated skull proved to be a genetic trait shared among members of the dynasty called dolichocephalic head. Deformity or disease was ruled out since the trait was passed to family members by genetic inheritance.

So, where did the dolichocephalic head originate from, appearing in South America, Iraq, Malta, Russia and other parts of the world over the previous century?
Are they the inheritance of the Mittani Kingdom?

Could it be the last remnants of a lost ancient race? Did the giants of mythology really did mate with the daughters of men?

Did the Nephilim really walk among humans until recently? Or did they never really went away?

I suspect our past walks with us constantly, and continues to haunt us until we are forced to make sense of it.

Dinosaur on temple in Cambodia

image Not a real one but a carving of one, namely a Stegosaurus. These fairly large dinosaurs are generally thought to have perished around 150 million years ago.

So what is this one doing in a Khmer temple about a thousand years old, long before the modern day depictions of dinosaurs?

The photo was sent by a reader to All News Web, and raises the old, interesting question: Can a living creature (giant or not) survive unnoticed in the remote regions of earth for, well, ages?

And if it can, how much more remains to be discovered? I am thinking creatures, temples, ancient technology, Atlantis, downed UFO's, you name it. If nothing else, the thought gives you hope that not everything is discovered and accounted for in this corporate-owned world.

Alp-size mountain range in Antarctica










From Reuters:

Jagged mountains the size of the Alps have been found entombed in Antarctica's ice, giving new clues about the vast ice sheet that will raise world sea levels if even a fraction of it melts, scientists said on Tuesday.

Using radar and gravity sensors, the experts made the first detailed maps of the Gamburtsev subglacial mountains, originally detected by Russian scientists 50 years ago at the heart of the East Antarctic ice sheet.

"The surprising thing was that not only is this mountain range the size of the Alps, but it looks quite similar to the (European) Alps, with high peaks and valleys," said Fausto Ferraccioli, a geophysicist at the British Antarctic Survey who took part in the research.

He told Reuters that the mountains would probably have been ground down almost flat if the ice sheet had formed slowly. But the presence of jagged peaks might mean the ice formed quickly, burying a landscape under up to 4 km (2.5 miles) of ice.

The last (obvious) place of mystery. 4Km of ice is thick. Too thick to melt, destroy, burrow, at least for the time being.
A true Terra Incognita, hostile and unforgiving, igniting the imaginations of writers with subzero secrets and hidden civilizations. Where else could an Ancient City millions of years old could have survived intact, if not under the protective polar cap?
I am referring of course to H.P Lovecrafts "At the Mountains of Madness". Holds a special place in my heart.
It could be there, under the ancient, ancient ice. Really. It could be.

And if it isn't, is it really important? No. Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. H.P. was right in so many aspects it makes you wonder.

Mysteries from the Past: Lumley UFO Case

P70 I came across this report and, aside from the fact that it looks reasonably credible, it also holds a great fascination for me, up there with ancient technology and Gods from above. Maybe it is the fact that no reports exist from that time of cover-ups and top secret agencies, except maybe the Illuminati and the Freemasons, but I really don't want to go there...

Heres the case from UfoCasebook:

This particular article tells the tale of a man by the name of James Lumley. We know little about Lumley, other than the Missouri Democrat seemingly finding him credible, but what we do know was that sometime in September of 1865 he was making his usual living of trapping fur somewhere in the mountains on the upper Missouri River, about 75 to 100 miles above stream of the Great Falls of the Missouri.

Just after sunset, Lumley claims he saw a bright light travelling rapidly through the sky in an easterly direction, where it exploded. Lumley reported that he then heard a rushing sound, felt the ground shake, and smelled sulfur in the air. Normally, one would consider this a classic case of a meteorite, but it gets better.

The next day, about two miles from his campsite, Lumley reports that he saw felled trees leading to an object that had partly embedded itself into a mountainside. The object was “rock-like”, and divided into “compartments”, and most notably, it was covered in what appeared to be Egyptian-style hieroglyphs. Liquid leaked from areas of the craft, and glass-like material littered the immediate area.


We don’t know what ultimately happened to Lumley, or if other versions of his account are out there somewhere. It can be reasonably said he probably did not recover the UFO. Does that mean its still out there? A century and a half later?

Lumley gave the location of the crash at around 75 to 100 miles above the Great Falls of the Missouri in the mountains, implying that he probably was upstream in a mountainous area near the river itself. Presuming the Great Falls being at the location of Ryan Dam, built on the largest of a series of falls collectively called the “Great Falls” but only those at Ryan Dam being properly called that, it would place his location in the area of Canyon Ferry Reservoir.

There are indeed mountains in that area, and Lumley’s lost UFO might just still be sitting there, partly buried in a mountainside, with its hieroglyphs perhaps now slightly eroded waiting for some intrepid explorer to find and reveal to the world. Unless, of course, the government or the originators of this UFO didn’t get to it first.


Now, the last paragraph does it for me. It COULD still be there. Stranger things have happened (and happen, regularly). Lost in the thick forest. Forever maybe. Drives me nuts.

The Bloop : Cthulhu Live from Rlye'h

bloopWell, I could not resist. The Bloop, according to Wikipedia:

The Bloop is the name given to an ultra-low frequency underwater sound detected by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration several times during the summer of 1997. The source of the sound remains unknown.

The sound, traced to somewhere around 50° S 100° W (South American southwest coast), was detected repeatedly by the Equatorial Pacific Ocean autonomous hydrophone array, which uses U.S. Navy equipment originally designed to detect Soviet submarines. According to the NOAA description, it "rises rapidly in frequency over about one minute and was of sufficient amplitude to be heard on multiple sensors, at a range of over 5,000 km." According to scientists who have studied the phenomenon it matches the audio profile of a living creature but there is no known animal that could have produced the sound. If it is an animal, it would have to be, reportedly, much larger than even a Blue Whale, the largest known animal on the earth.[1]

Because the Bloop noise originated near the location of the fictional sunken city of R'lyeh from H. P. Lovecraft's story "The Call of Cthulhu", the Bloop has been linked to Cthulhu by Lovecraft fans

Well, that sends tremors down my Shoggoth-infested spine, but, wait a minute.. Humor aside, larger than a blue whale? Well, that's big.

Having seen Cloverfield lately, I can honestly say that a Rising of the High Priest of the Elder Gods would not be funny. Not one bit funny. Like shitting bricks not funny.

To aid you in the meditative process of such an event, here's Cthulhu Meditation, using the source audio of the Bloop to make you even more effective in your invocation of the Deep Ones.

Apocalypse Wanted

All this past year (hell, most years since I can remember), I have a nagging sense of something about to happen. An Event. Something to change and make History. An Apocalypse.
Things are boiling and stirring to World War III, Alien Invasion, Unimaginable Epidemics (including zombification viruses) and more..
I have to admit these senarios are more the product of an inner desire than educated guesses based on observation. Sure there is unrest, instability, wars, doom predictions, crazy prophets and more. The world is ablaze, it seems, but then again, has there been a time when it wasn't?
I came across this great article, which is right to the point. It describes those feelings with no name but Anarchy, and puts them in perspective. Really it does.

" And sitting there by the slack and dirty water, I had one of those moments of scorching self-vision. I realized that I'd been hiding underneath the skirts of the apocalypse for decades now. I'd daydreamed disasters as a way of not wanting too much, not caring too much; keeping safe from the fear too much knowledge of current events tends to tattoo on your brain.

But real apocalypses are sordid, banal, insane. If things do come unraveled, they present not a golden opportunity for lone wolves and well-armed geeks, but a reality of babies with diarrhea, of bugs and weird weather and dust everywhere, of never enough to eat, of famine and starving, hollow-eyed people, of drunken soldiers full of boredom and self-hate, of random murder and rape and wars which accomplish nothing, of many fine things lost for no reason and nothing of any value gained. And survivalists, if they actually manage to avoid becoming the prey of larger groups, sitting bitter and cold and hungry and paranoid, watching their supplies run low and wishing they had a clean bed and some friends. Of all the lies we tell ourselves, this is the biggest: that there is any world worth living in that involves the breakdown of society."

This guy states all that ring true to me, with a clarity of thought I envy. I am too, done thinking like a twelve-year old. Time to grow up...
