Alien Cuticle :  Salmonella-like microbes from space

 

 

There is a Germanic belief in sympathetic magic that a man can change himself into a werewolf by donning a girdle belt.

 
The beast is the girdle


This trophy from the Python won, This robe, in which the deed was done,

A serpent girdled round he wore, The tail within the mouth, before;

His vest, for day and night, was py’d; A bending sickle arm’d his side;

An Allegory of Man

by Samuel Johnson

The Serpent Girdle of Abraxas

 

  • Brax = girdle (vr_ko lykos = vampire)
  • Torso of Athene, with Gorgoned aegis fastened round the waist
  • Athena with serpent girdle over diploidion – early period.
  • Ares, god of war, wears a serpent girdle. This girdle, a kind of snake made of fabric, leather or metal, is a symbol for sexual power.
  • If you look at the little Minoan snake-goddess you will see how two of the three snakes she wears actually form the girdle that goes round her hips.

L.W. Wilde

“Girdles were used for religious purposes in the Greek and Roman liturgy, and Anastasius mentions in the 9th cent. muranula, or jeweled girdles in the shape of lampreys or eels.”

The girdle of Finnen or St. John by an Irish monk may be a Celtic version of the Abraxas serpent girdle:

‘The girdle of the serpent is my girdle, the serpent is about me that men may not wound me, that women may not destroy me.’

Encyclopedia of Religion, Part 11 By James Hastings

Seaweed, mustard, and burnt almond


Salmonella-like microbes from space. Alien cuticle. The beast is the girdle, set into the wireframe shape of a human torso. Worn by Cartaphilus and worshiped by your children, with embraces and kisses, to bond their hearts to the religion of clinical vampire sex magic. The alien abduction.

Government and the Alien Scapegoat

Government and the Alien Scapegoat

 

Peter Fotis Kapnistos (2010)

 

Symbolically, a scapegoat was sent into the wilderness in a biblical ceremony to bear the guilt for others. In our day, philosophical anthropologists describe the phrase “scapegoat mechanism” as a misinformation procedure. As maintained by the theories of scapegoat psychology, aggression is displaced on an easy villain.

* * *

Below the foothills of the settlement, unknown spies gathered to map and prepare a surprise assault. The community encampment, high above, gave fretful attention to an assessor’s forewarning. Some shuddered. “We’re doomed,” said a counselor. “They’ll return with an army of soldiers.”

“Not so,” replied the high priest. “Send Azazel,” he waved to a sickly goat, far-off outside the camp. It lay on its face with spongy waste oozing from its head. The high priest selected a troop to get ready the goat Azazel. No wearing of leather or wool and linen woven together was allowed within the group, for that would bring the poor health of Azazel into the encampment. The entire population was not to eat in public.

Women in the troop were skilled in the talent of ornamenting the body, dying the hair, and painting the face and the eyebrows. They applied the fine art of beautifying Azazel by dye and paint.

Workers made a vestment of golden braces. They strapped the ailing goat’s withered legs and varnished its brittle horns. They fastened a scarlet woolen thread, needle stitched, to close the moldy sore on Azazel’s head. The woolen thread was extremely long, since Azazel was sightless from diseases that affected its nervous system, and needed to be guided toward the enemy position. Ten booths were constructed at intervals along the road leading from the community encampment to the steep mountain rock face.

“Men were stationed at intervals along the way, and as soon as the goat was thrown down the precipice, they signaled to one another by means of kerchiefs or flags, until the information reached the high priest.”

In the foothills below, an unfamiliar enemy witnessed an awe-inspiring scene. The spirit of a Golden Fleece all of a sudden frolicked amid the foliage. The man looked up again and marveled at the sight of a living golden-haired lamb. He eagerly called his comrades to come together around the charmed lively fleece. Its eyeball twinkled with balsam and its jaw blushed with berries. Its yellow coat had the scent of a sugary fragrance. As if by the mystical, a breathing Golden Fleece had become visible to the spies like a triumph omen. The adversaries hurriedly called upon their made-up gods and had their pagan ways with Azazel. They geared up a char-grill for their conquest feast.

The story of Azazel cannot be fully told in the company of children. It is a source of impurity, desolation and corrupted manners. Half the distance to the ravine below, Azazel’s limbs were discovered shattered and strewn with its girder horseshoes, jeweled rings, and fitted buckles. Azazel’s scorched remains were afterward found at the bottom of the valley of the rock of Bet Hadudo. At the break of day, profuse watery discharges and vomiting beset the enemy spies. By the twilight they were lifeless.

After the events of September 11, the Bush-Cheney administration and its coalition partners declared a Global War on Terror. Not only did the American government pledge to overcome the “cold-blooded killers,” but it also urged other nations not to offer safe haven to these terrorists. President Bush said in a famous speech, “If you harbor a terrorist, you’re equally as guilty as the terrorist.”

“Send Hammi,” the lady of the arid expanse thought.

Others viewed her as a prophetess, but to some, she was a queen of the desert.

“Hammi?” the tall general said with a surprised look on his face. “He’s the worst of the worst.”

“That’s what they want don’t they?” she softly replied. “Worst of the worst. Let’s obey the American demands. Open our reformatory doors and let loose the foul birds that once disturbed us. Send them to the front line camps for the Americans to take delivery of.”

She looked at the outlying meadow. “We’ll be rid of many troubles. The Americans want authority of brave men. Do not enter a pointless fight to defend indecent rabble and ruffians.”

“Send Hammi,” she contended and weathered a tearful look.

Some time ago, “hamam” Hammi ran the homeboy terror gangs through the old streets of East Jerusalem. He was a ferocious slasher who sought wages for low jobs. Hammi never claimed to be a Muslim or a Jew.

“What exactly did he do?” a police officer new to the post once imprudently asked.

“He sculpted with slaughter knives,” the law enforcement chief harshly replied. “One of his examples had a garland of flowers and a folded card.”

“I’m sorry I asked,” the officer considerately reacted.

“We’re all sorry regarding Hammi,” the police chief continued. “His house was finally bulldozed because he caught a bug doctors couldn’t diagnose or cure. A hydra beast growing in him. It has to be surgically cut and trimmed at regular intervals. And it’s catching. Doctors say Hammi has an unsolved syndrome that inflicts the worst of the worst.”

The Institute of Astronomy at Cambridge has contributed greatly to the theory of stellar nucleosynthesis and cosmology. One of its astronomers coined the term “Big Bang.” For decades it has also investigated the likelihood of diseases from space. The details involve the incubation of microorganisms in comets that eventually cross Earth’s pathway.

Today more scientists are suggesting that viruses and bacteria responsible for peculiar infectious diseases might arrive at the Earth from space. They are studying cometary bacteria that enter the Earth’s atmosphere from space fallout.

“A recent experiment published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences has shown that a microbe can turn even more dangerous in space than on Earth. In that study, a bacterium particularly nasty for humans — salmonella — was shown to become more virulent after just 83 hours of growing in space.” (Barry E. DiGregorio, “Deadly Microbes From Outer Space,” Discover, February 2008)

The popular “Men in Black” films starring Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith laughably depict extraterrestrial hydra beasts hiding in human bodies. They helped foster an urban myth that government agencies supposedly carry out secret operations here on Earth in order to keep us safe from aliens, and the worst bugs.

When the government declared a War on Terror, the general public thought the “worst of the worst” would be examined under strict supervision with the utmost concern. The Institute of Astronomy at Cambridge, for example, had a large amount of data and related apparatus to lend out. But it was scandalously revealed that the only basic tools the US interrogators were given to confront a possible “Azazel danger” consisted of rubber gloves, lumber boots, and a guidebook for nude discomfort positions. An apparent lab error?

The belief that the “worst of the worst” will feel shame when unclothed is mistaken. It gives prospect for the nastiest bugs to contaminate secondary hosts. Had the writers of the antiterrorist interrogation guidebook consulted the Office of the Surgeon General, they would have known that a nude discussion without reason increases the chances of secondary host microbial infections by up to 90 percent. Who wrote the guidebook?

Much of the medical community was displeased by so-called water board regulations in conjunction with the “worst of the worst.” Most hydra-type bugs will grow down, passing out through the bowels. But the syndrome of Hammi grows up, and must be cut (see: “What’s the Berghof Beast?”). An arbitrary spurt of water and mucus on or after asphyxiation may be a highly dangerous cause of secondary host infection. Regrettably, the outliner of the guidebook seems less of a scientist and more of a medieval dungeon furniture salesman.

A secondary host infection will appear as a cyst or lump in the body, usually around the thighs and upper arms. For the “hydra bug” to complete its lifecycle and reproduce, the secondary host must be bleeding, thus transferring its genetic material through direct contact or various “splatter breeze” effects to another primary host, such as Hammi.

Unluckily, the guidebook seemingly took occasion to expose US interrogators to blood-borne pathogens without consulting the Surgeon General. Bees will learn to aim directly at flowers having the best nectar and pollen. If “Azazel bugs” use comparable instincts to find their secondary hosts, surgically removing their cysts may lessen the chance probabilities of deliberate hemorrhage.

Professor Stephen Hawking recently said that if we were ever discovered by an alien civilization, they would probably conquer us. But don’t imagine space ships and laser cannons. They will conquer us with a microbe. Will the Earth’s governments know how to face up to it, when it comes to the worst of the worst?

 

What’s the Berghof Beast?

 

The Berghof was in the Bavarian Alps near Berchtesgaden, on the same mountain as the “Eagle’s Nest.” It was a large country house following the example of the château of Ermenonville. An extract from a French book of the 1790’s, Essai Sur La Secte Des Illumines (1789) (French Edition) , claimed that the huge château of Ermenonville near Paris was one of the chief lodges of the Bavarian Illuminati movement. It belonged to the Marquis of Gerardin, who once sheltered the prominent Enlightenment writer Jean Jacques Rousseau. The well-known impostor and alchemist St. Germain allegedly presided over it.

What happened in the Berghof is revealed in “Eyes Wide Shut,” a 1999 drama film by Stanley Kubrick based upon the 1926 novella Traumnovelle (Dream Story), by Arthur Schnitzler. Dr. Bill Harford enters the massive masked orgy of an underground cult. Some of the masked participants are said to be powerful members of society.

In the spacious mansion people wearing various robes and Venetian carnival masks watch a sexuality ritual involving naked women standing in a circle, led by a masked man. As the cloaked people watch, women rise from a circle and select men from the audience, including Bill:

“The woman informs Bill that he is in danger and urges him to leave, but he refuses. She is led away by someone else, after which Bill wanders through rooms in which orgies are occurring.”

What’s the Berghof Beast?

In the Berghof, the adamant chancellor often had “too much” sex and would typically seek relief from carnal gluttony in his adjacent tea house. Here, he would wrestle with “the old serpent,” an occult demon of the underworld, more ancient than the shark.

Is there a doctor in the house?

“More towels,” cried an orderly.

“The miracle of sacred emanation,” smiled the bowed wizard of Oz. “Magick ectoplasm issuing from Abraxas’ divine source.”

“You’re full of flatworm,” the doctor whispered and jostled for more elbowroom. “You’re doing fine… Only twenty more feet to go…”

“More towels,” the orderly frantically repeated again.

* * *

Today, the Bilderberg Group, Bohemian Grove. (Unfortunately Bill blamed the messenger, instead of thanking him for warning Bill in advance.) Addendum: The beast-body is of cuticle. When the beast dies, the cuticle hardens. Flat razor. Sharper than a bull’s horn.

The Men Who Stare at Zygotes

The Men Who Stare at Zygotes

 

By Peter Fotis Kapnistos

 

The Men Who Stare at Goats (2004) is a book by Jon Ronson about the U.S. Army’s investigation of psychic theories and the possible military uses of the paranormal. Its title alludes to efforts to kill goats by staring at them. In a Nov 7, 2009 online Twitter post, the well-known mentalist Uri Geller referred to actor George Clooney, saying, “His latest film is about my work.” In a Nov 12 Twitter post, Geller added:

“George Clooney is Uri Geller in the movie The Men Who Stare At Goats? I believe I ignited the story when I told Jon Ronson about some of my adventures with a certain intelligence agency.”

cloonyJon Ronson’s book examines the links between paranormal military programs and psychological techniques used today. The book follows the development of secret psychic activities over the past decades and explores how they are used today in U.S. security and military operations.  Project Stargate, the CIA-run program that used remote viewing for psychic spying, came to an end in 1995, and thousands of pages of formerly classified material were released. Journalist Gary S. Bekkum has researched those secret government documents, as well as UFO information and psychic explorations.

According to Bekkum, The Men Who Stare at Goats (the 2009 comedy film) is more or less consistent, with polished performances from a first-rate cast headed by George Clooney, Ewan McGregor, Jeff Bridges, and Kevin Spacey. The America government has been involved in using the paranormal since the beginning of the Cold War. Bekkum now has 89,900 pages of documents about the psychic effort provided by the CIA:

In the 1970s, the American Intelligence Community, including but not limited to CIA, DIA, NSA, Army intelligence, the USAF, the Navy, and others, engaged in secret research to determine the usefulness of psychic phenomena. This is true, and this larger effort is mostly ignored by the film, which tells the story from the point of view of the characters, some who were inspired by real persons and events.

In the 1980s, Army intelligence did train operational military psychic spies, who were tasked against real targets of interest, including several high profile cases, such as the hostage crisis in Iran. Tasking for the units was handed down from highest levels of the U.S. government, including the Joint Chiefs of Staff, according to declassified government files.

Jon Ronson’s book focused on one group of psychic spies in the U.S. Army. But if famed paranormalist Uri Geller is somehow related to Ronson’s observations, perhaps we ought to also look into Geller’s military background. Uri Geller was a paratrooper in the Israeli army. He fought in the Six Day War of 1967 and was wounded in action.

Geller’s biographers disclosed a rather intense incident when Uri supposedly tried to “duck and dive” on military service: “His working out of a cunning plan of deception in the paratroopers was not only foolhardy at the time – for what he did, he could have been flung in a military prison for months and suffered a stain on his record for the rest of his life.”

What actually happened to Uri Geller in the Israeli army? According to Uri, a miraculous switchover incident took place, with a machine gun. (‘Ben Gunn,’ says you, ‘has reasons of his own.’) But there was no one he could tell. “His first thought was that God had intervened, and as he has never had any other explanation for it, that tends to remain his belief.”

Although Geller took a bullet through his left hand in the Six Day War, he still headed a crack unit to knock out a pillbox. After being shot at twice, he fired his gun and killed a Jordanian soldier. Shortly later, slices of metal flying off a stricken tank, or possibly bullets, hit Geller again. “He felt a blast, sensed something entering his right arm and the left side of his forehead, and, as he blacked out, assumed with resignation that he was dead.”

Is there anything in the army records to suggest that Uri Geller might be able to stop someone’s heart by staring at him or her? Uri has been filmed staring at fertilized cells (zygotes) and plant seeds in order to make them germinate and sprout. But do certain psychic techniques involve martial arts and self-defense? Why does Geller relate to the men who stare at goats? Should we take a more careful look at Gary Bekkum’s files?

Uri Geller once said he had a dream he would die during a paratrooper jump: “He appreciated that dreaming of dying on a jump was a fairly normal thing for a paratrooper to do.” Did something weird happen to Uri Geller when he jumped as a paratrooper in the Six Day War? Did he in some way set off from this life? Was Uri’s miraculous switchover incident a reference to an out-of-body experience (OBE), or a significant UFO intrusion?

gellerIn the Second World War, UFO sightings were called “foo fighters.” Nowadays, if the blip of an unidentified paratrooper shows up on a radar screen, it’s sometimes called a “Mary Poppins” (the one-liner joke is that someone jumped down from the sky).

When the 11th blip abruptly arrived on Israeli radar in June of 1967, it was far more life threatening than a pathetic joke of duck and dive. Ten Israeli soldiers had volunteered for a critical mission to defend Israel’s right to exist. The radar screens showed eleven. Who was the 11th paratrooper of the Six Day War?

For what he did, he could have been put in prison. His mind raced beyond the limits of past and future. His body was a weightless force, faster than a speeding projectile. His right hand was outstretched. A shock wave roared and thundered in the sky behind him. The eleventh paratrooper was descending to the Mount of Olives.

There would be no picnic tables set with refreshments or well-dressed pastors waiting with Bibles at the moment. Jerusalem was a battle zone with heavy fighting –– a desert theater of fortifications and tanks. Pieces of someone’s dismembered leg marked the burning ground. “Where’s your parachute?” asked another soldier. “Over there,” the eleventh replied and pointed to a near graveyard. His shirt was saturated with color, dipped in his own blood.

He projected phases of his life as several dimensions, from a playful child to an elderly peacekeeper. Those aspects he embedded into terrestrial reality –– past and future –– when his feet touched the ground, and his body descended to the Mount of Olives. Who was the 11th paratrooper?

Cause tonight for the first time

Just about half-past ten

For the first time in history

It’s gonna start raining men.

It’s Raining Men! Hallelujah! – It’s Raining Men! Amen!

(The Weather Girls, 1982)

* * *

The eleventh paratrooper was at last identified and a background check was conducted. The niece of Sigmund Freud became a refugee when book burning and violent outbursts of anti-Semitism began in Vienna. Sigmund Freud and his family received visits from the Gestapo. Many would perish in the Holocaust.

The niece of Sigmund Freud was put at great risk with numerous forced abortion incidents –– enough to bring about female infertility. It would have been a medical wonder for her to be his biological mother.

The “SS Exodus” was a ship that carried Jewish emigrants from France in 1947 with the goal of taking its passengers to Israel. Most of the emigrants were Holocaust survivors who had no immigration certificates. Homeless orphans had no legal birth certificates or given names.

* * *

Uri Geller said that his paratrooper switchover was under the protection of some outside force, which was unfathomable. His first thought was that God had intervened. The American psychic Ingo Swann worked with Uri in the 1970s.  Russel Targ and Harold Puthoff conducted experiments with them at the Stanford Research Institute (SRI). They believed that Uri Geller, retired police commissioner Pat Price, and artist Ingo Swann had genuine psychic abilities. The CIA and the Defense Advance Research Projects Agency (DARPA), directed by Andrija Puharich, allegedly worked with Geller, Price, and Swann to develop psychic powers for the military.

In November 2009, NASA scientists made the thrilling discovery that the moon has lots of water and could probably support life. NASA’s October 9 mission involving the Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite provided the stunning confirmation of water in the forms of ice and vapor. “Having definitive evidence that there is substantial water is a significant step forward in making the moon an interesting place to go,” said John Logsdon, a space policy researcher for George Washington University.

In 1998, Ingo Swann wrote of water on the moon and said the moon also supports life. Swann claimed that men in black had taken him into the wing of a covert black ops survey into lunar anomalies to learn what aliens were doing there. Swann said he had made government connections with human looking moon visitors that were living on earth.

“VALIS” is a 1981 science fiction novel by Philip K. Dick. (The title is an acronym for Vast Active Living Intelligence System.) Dick’s theory was that we have been contacted by a transcendental mind he called VALIS:

In 1973 world-famous psychic showman Uri Geller had also been receiving messages and regular UFO sightings from something calling itself SPECTRA, which claimed to be a super computer in orbit around the earth. Not normally reticent about his bizarre beliefs, Geller has been suspiciously quiet about his experiences of SPECTRA – which may or may not relate to the publicly recorded interest the CIA paid to this particular aspect of his unusual career. However, the maverick, but world-renowned physicist, Dr. Jack Sarfatti, was prepared to commit almost certain professional suicide by publicly declaring that he too had been contacted by, in his own words, “a VALIS-like being.” Despite knowing he was going to face ridicule and scientific crucifixion, Sarfatti went on record to recount how, in 1952 at the age of 13, he had received a telephone call from an inhuman, metallic voice. The voice declared himself a sentient computer on a spacecraft from the future and instructed him to pursue a career in science.

After Sarfatti went public about his phone call from VALIS as a teenager, it emerged that he was not the only scientist to have had a similar experience. In recent years, researchers have discovered that at least a dozen other senior players in the international scientific community received a mysterious call claiming to be from a computer or other being from the future encouraging them to study science.



(David Southwell and Sean Twist, “Conspiracy Files: Real-life Stories of Paranoia, Secrecy, and Intrigue” 2004)

Tim Boucher freshly considered Philip K. Dick’s premise and said that Geller is also responsible for stories regarding John Lennon’s UFO contacts. Today, the prospects for life on the moon are better than ever before. “Rather than a dead and unchanging world, it could in fact be a very dynamic and interesting one,” said Greg Delory, a researcher for the University of California.

Former astronaut Buzz Aldrin recently said in an interview that there’s a “monolith” on a moon. Benjamin Creme, a writer of esotericism for Share International magazine, claims that the modern “Messiah” already entered the earth’s atmosphere –– decades ago –– and is now living in England. The modern messiah-figure is making his policies known to the world as the current global systems give way.

As the “megachurch” movement spreads worldwide and “televangelists” make use of home entertainment media to provide teaching and support to believers, a new inquiry has been put forward: “If Jesus had a TV show, what would he broadcast?” The men who stare at quotes think he should probably instruct Bible and Sunday school studies. The men who stare at notes think he should explore lost archeology, ancient biology or stellar explosions in space. But the men who stare at votes think he should perform more miracles –– in harmony with our current laws. Today it is unlawful for a layman to heal without a medical license (very soon, it might also be forbidden for one to offer security related help).

“Another world,” the stranger said to the small crowd of men. “Why do you stand there, looking up at the sky? He will return in the same way that you saw him go.”

According to Benjamin Crème (and maybe Dan Brown), the modern messiah-figure’s intention is to marry and live the dream of Eden. His legendary wedding feast is supposed to last for a thousand years, to mark the “technological singularity” or scientific era of eternal life.

Some critics may perhaps argue that men who stare at goats use the evil side of the mind. But a more angelic inspiration for Jon Ronson’s weird tale can be found in Acts 5:

Now a man named Ananias, together with his wife Sapphira, also sold a piece of property. With his wife’s full knowledge he kept back part of the money for himself, but brought the rest and put it at the apostles’ feet.

Then Peter said, “Ananias, how is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit and have kept for yourself some of the money you received for the land? Didn’t it belong to you before it was sold? And after it was sold, wasn’t the money at your disposal? What made you think of doing such a thing? You have not lied to men but to God.”

When Ananias heard this, he fell down and died. And great fear seized all who heard what had happened. Then the young men came forward, wrapped up his body, and carried him out and buried him.

About three hours later his wife came in, not knowing what had happened. Peter asked her, “Tell me, is this the price you and Ananias got for the land?”

“Yes,” she said, “that is the price.”

Peter said to her, “How could you agree to test the Spirit of the Lord? Look! The feet of the men who buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out also.”

At that moment she fell down at his feet and died. Then the young men came in and, finding her dead, carried her out and buried her beside her husband. Great fear seized the whole church and all who heard about these events.

UFOs Explained –– and Unsolved

UFOs Explained –– and Unsolved

 

By Peter Fotis Kapnistos (copyright 2009)

 

Some modern UFO myths were produced by the German development of rocketry and jet aircraft, which led to the missile and space programs of the Soviet Union and the United States. UFO sightings during World War II, mainly those known as foo fighters, were thought to be enemy craft. German flying discs were said to be advanced aircraft or spacecraft developed during World War II. Some believe that German scientists continued to develop flying saucers in Antarctica.

 

The Explained

 

 

explained

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1950 – Giuseppe Belluzzo, an Italian scientist and former Minister of National Economy under Mussolini, said flying discs were designed in Germany and Italy as early as 1942. Quoted in the Italian newspaper Il Giornale d’Italia, Belluzzo said some great power was launching discs to study them. That same year, German engineer Rudolf Schriever gave an interview to the German magazine Der Spiegel, saying he had designed an aircraft powered by a circular plane of turbine blades, 49 feet in diameter. His team at BMW’s Prague works had developed the Nazi flying disc project until April 1945, when he fled Czechoslovakia.

1952 – A company called Avro Canada began to study designs for a supersonic circular wing fighter-bomber, subsidized by the Canadian government. The Canadian government soon abandoned the flying disc project as being too costly, but enough progress had been made to spark the interest of the U.S. government.

1953 – German engineer Georg Klein said that while Avro Canada announced it was developing a circular jet aircraft with an estimated speed of 1,500 mph (2,400 km/h), such flying disc designs had originally been developed during the Third Reich.

1954 – The first of two U.S. Air Force contracts totaling $1.9 million was awarded to Avro for further study. Avro chipped in $2.5 million and completed design studies and small-scale tests on a vehicle designated the P.V. 704 (U.S. designation, System 606A). The 606A flying disc design was almost 30 feet in diameter with a maximum weight of 27,000 lbs and a design speed over 1,000 mph.

1958 – The U.S. Army also became interested in the Avro project. The Air Force agreed to redirect its effort as this could demonstrate the design features of the 606A concept in less time at a much lower price. The resulting craft was named Avrocar and given the Army designation VZ-9AV (VZ for vertical take-off reseach aircraft, 9 as it was the ninth in a series and AV for Avro). The Avrocar was a saucer-shaped disk 18 feet in diameter and 3 feet thick. It was designed to go 300 mph and able to fly to an altitude of 10,000 feet. It weighed 5,650 lbs and had separate cockpits for two crewmembers.

1959 – Two flying disc prototypes rolled out of the Avro factory. The first Avrocar was sent to NASA Ames, Moffett Field in California. It flew in 1961 and was used for wind tunnel testing. The second Avrocar prototype was said to be aerodynamically unstable.

1961 – The Avrocar flying disc program was allegedly terminated after a total of $10 million had been spent. The two prototypes were finally put on exhibit in the United States, one at the US Army Transportation Museum and the other at the Smithsonian.

1975 – Stealth aircraft became possible during the 1970s when Lockheed adopted a mathematical model developed by Russian scientist Petr Ufimtsev to predict the radar signature an aircraft made with flat panels, called facets. Engineers at Lockheed found that an airplane with faceted surfaces could have a very low radar signature because the surfaces would radiate almost all of the radar energy away from the receiver.

1980 – From the mid-1980s, triangular-shaped UFOs were observed in the skies. This was the era of US stealth aircraft, with a skin made of highly specialized materials in order to gain and maintain air supremacy.

1993 – The Aurora was the name given to an unmanned US reconnaissance aircraft or drone supposedly developed in secret “black” programs in the 1980s and alleged to be capable of hypersonic flight. The US has carried out numerous drone air raids in recent years. In a briefing note to the British Assistant Chief of the Air Staff (ACAS), Anthony Bagnall, then head of the Ministry of Defence’s UFO desk, wrote that there was evidence of such an unidentified Aurora craft evading UK defenses.

1997 – Declassified documents revealed a USAF forty-foot flying disc designed to fire warheads from 300 miles in space. The American flying saucer was called the Lenticular Reentry Vehicle (LRV). Engineers at North American Aviation in Los Angeles designed it under contract with the United States Air Force. Direction was from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, employing German scientists who had worked on WWII German rocket planes and flying disc technology.

2008 – A Chinese company developed a prototype flying saucer drone that can hover in the air and be controlled remotely from afar, Xinhua news agency said. The aircraft is 1.2 meters (four feet) in diameter and is able to take off and land vertically and hover at an altitude of up to 1,000 meters (yards). It took the Harbin Smart Special Aerocraft Co Ltd 12 years and 28 million yuan (4.1 million dollars) to develop the prototype flying disc, which is designed for aerial photography, geological surveys, and emergency lighting.

 

 

The Unsolved

 

 

unsolved

 

 

The Roswell incident continues to stir up allegations that the US government carried out a cover-up. UFO investigators claimed that a crashed alien spacecraft and bodies were recovered near Roswell, New Mexico in 1947.

Lately, the missing Apollo 11 tapes were pointed to as another possible cover-up. When Neil Armstrong first walked on the Moon in July 1969, the camera sent back color video far sharper and more vivid than the blurred pictures shown on TV –– stunning images that “only a handful of people have ever seen.” But decades after the high-resolution NASA videos went into storage, they are nowhere to be found. The Goddard Space Flight Center said it haphazardly lost the original Moon tapes, or destroyed them. (Some hacked Internet videos show an alleged ancient Moon base, supposedly filmed by Armstrong.)

Here are some up to date unsolved incident items:

Feb 28, 2007 – Former Canadian Minister of Defense Paul Hellyer demanded that world governments disclose alien technology that could be used to solve the problem of climate change. “I would like to see what (alien) technology there might be that could eliminate the burning of fossil fuels within a generation… that could be a way to save our planet,” Hellyer told the Ottawa Citizen newspaper.

March 22, 2007France became the first country to open its official files on UFOs. The national space agency unveiled a website documenting more than 1600 sightings spanning five decades.

June 22, 2007 – A mile-wide UFO –– one of the largest ever seen –– was observed by the crew and passengers of an airliner over the Channel Islands between Great Britain and Northern France. An official air-miss report on the incident appeared in Pilot magazine. Aurigny Airlines captain Ray Bowyer, flying close to Alderney spotted the mile-wide object, described as “cigar-shaped.”

Nov 11, 2007 – The pilot of Olympic Airways flight 266 reported a UFO shortly after taking off from Athens en route to London. Staff at Athens airport, the pilots of two other passenger planes, and people at a nearby air force base also saw the flying object. Greek authorities kept the UFO encounter secret for over a year but finally released documents and pilot conversation recordings, generating huge public interest.

Nov 13, 2007 – Former pilots who reported strange phenomena in the sky demanded the US government reopen an investigation into UFOs. They offered accounts of witnessing UFOs, including a transparent flying disc and a triangular craft with mysterious markings. James Penniston, a retired US Air Force pilot described seeing and touching a UFO when he was at a British air base in Woodbridge. The UFO was “warm to the touch and felt like metal,” Penniston said. After 45 minutes the light from the object “began to intensify” and it “shot off at an unbelievable speed” before air force personnel, he said.

Dec 18, 2007 – Japan’s  top government spokesman said he definitely believed unidentified flying objects exist. Chief Cabinet Secretary Nobutaka Machimura was speaking to reporters in response to demands lodged by an opposition lawmaker for an inquiry into “frequent reports of UFO sightings.”

March 30, 2008 – Mrs. Izydora from Szczecinek (northern part of Poland) reportedly went with her husband on a trip and observed an outline of a humanoid entity hovering above the ruins of a former military complex. While her husband went toward the local forest, Mrs. Izydora decided to stroll amid ruins of the former military base. After a while she unexpectedly noticed in the mid-air some kind of semi-transparent entity. She said it looked like a “misty figure” of a man hovering several meters above the ground.

May 14, 2008 The British Ministry of Defence opened its files on UFOs. Along with the unsolved cases were odd encounters when jet fighter pilots considered shooting down UFOs. The MoD said its investigation had to do with monitoring UK security and more files were being prepared for release over the next four years.

May 21, 2008 – Omar Ferlatti and Walter Lopez reported encountering a short glowing humanoid figure in a field in San Carlos, Salta, Argentina. The small humanoid figure appeared to be surrounded by a sort of “magnetic field,” which prevented the men from approaching it. The figure was described as having human features, with long arms and long fingers but without fingernails. Around the same time a local sheep herder grazing in the nearby Valles Clachaquies reported being startled by a similar humanoid while guarding the herd.

June 7, 2008 – Three British soldiers said they saw UFOs, which looked like “rotating cubes,” while on night patrol at Tern Hill military barracks near Market Drayton, Shropshire. Corporal Mark Proctor, of the 1st Battalion of the Irish Regiment, recorded the sighting on his mobile phone and reported it to Army officers. Two hours later, helicopter police officers reported an encounter with a huge craft 80 miles away near Cardiff. They claimed to have given chase to the “flying saucer-shaped” object after it almost collided with their aircraft near the Ministry of Defence base of St Athan.

June 29, 2008 – A Royal Navy aircraft engineer claimed to have seen a “glowing” UFO hover over the M5 motorway. It was reported as a circular disc glowing bright, hovering hundreds of meters up. Michael Madden said he watched in disbelief as the disc-shaped object floated above his head before it “zoomed off at incredible speed.” He said the unidentified object flew for up to three minutes above junction 21 of the M5 near Weston-super-Mare of Somerset.

Oct 3, 2008 – Emmy Award-winning producer and author Linda Moulton Howe said that cattle had been seen rising in beams of light into large flying discs. In an interview with Leo Sprinkle, Ph.D., the former professor of psychology at the University of Wyoming reported that Judy Doraty and her teenage daughter, Cindy, watched a calf rise in a beam of light into a flying disc outside Houston, Texas in 1973. In a similar 1980 incident, a mother and her young son in Cimarron, New Mexico reportedly encountered non-human entities and watched a cow rise in an orange light beam.

Oct 24, 2008 – A US military veteran who worked in the helicopter aviation field while in the military reported seeing a huge object about the size of a large shopping mall and parking lot in the early morning hours. Truck driver Tim Comstock was on Route 7 north of the town of Empire, Ohio, when he saw the mile-wide UFO. “I looked up and there was a very bright object just above the tree level. It seemed self-luminescent. It was big. About the size of a large shopping mall and parking lot. It didn’t look like anything mechanical by any means. To me, it looked like a cocoon,” he told reporter Linda Moulton Howe.

Nov 6, 2008 NASA scientists contributed to the spate of UFO videos posted on the Internet. The US space agency were filming from a shuttle outside the Earth’s orbit in April 2008, when the cameras picked up some objects that have never been identified.

Nov 20, 2008 – Russian researcher Vladimir Azhazha said that extraterrestrials are greatly interested in human sperm and ovules. “Mikhail Gorbachev was the first and the last national leader who acknowledged the issue of unidentified flying objects in Russia. We established the public ufological center during his rule under my supervision,” the Russian scientist told reporters. “It is not ruled out that they come from a civilization of parallel worlds, or from the ocean. Modern science knows very little about what’s happening at ocean’s depths,” Azhazha said.

Nov 22, 2008 – The pilot of a British police helicopter carrying two police observers narrowly avoided colliding with a UFO over Birmingham. All three reported seeing a strange aircraft with two continuous blue-green lights. The object was less than 100 meters away and flew around them. The incident was detailed by the Airprox Board, which reports near misses to the military and air traffic control units. Nick Pope, who previously worked for the Ministry of Defence’s UFO desk, said: “A helicopter was nearly blown out of the sky.”

Dec 22, 2008 – Dr. Peter Creola, a retired Swiss chief delegate at the European Space Agency (ESA is the European version of NASA) and head of the Swiss office for space policies, joined the ranks of those who formally request the truth about UFOs. On the topic of disclosing the facts about UFOs, Dr. Creola said: “You cannot unconditionally trust NASA.”

Jan 8, 2009 – An octopus-shaped UFO was reported flying through the air hours before a British wind turbine was destroyed in mysterious circumstances. Dozens of residents claimed to have seen bright flashing spheres is the skies near Louth, Lincolnshire, where a 290 ft turbine was mangled in a mystery collision. One woman said she saw an object fly towards the wind farm, while others described the lights as being linked by tentacles, leading locals to dub it the octopus UFO.

Jan 17, 2009 – A mysterious blue car-shaped UFO was photographed in Darwin, Australia as it flew across a cloudy sky. Amateur photographer Mark Schmutter snapped the shots from the ninth-floor balcony of a friend’s apartment. He said he saw the object move across the sky about the speed of a plane –– then it flew straight upwards before it disappeared into the sky. Mr Schmutter said he had no idea what the object was –– be it a strange, newfangled aircraft or a UFO shaped like a car.

Jan 19, 2009 – A UFO was seen and filmed in China by a squadron of fire fighters in Liu Pan Shui City in the province of Guizhou. One of the fire fighters, Wang Jia Wei, noticed an odd flashing star and got a camera with 700X zoom. The filmed UFO was made of two rotating spinning top-shaped vehicles or halves of a whole craft joined at their bases. Members of the Liu Pan Shiu meteorological bureau were unable to identify the object.

Jan 30, 2009 The Danish Air Force released 329 pages of previously classified archives on UFO sightings, including details on more than 200 unsolved cases. The Air Force said the archives contain details of unexplained events occurring between 1978 and 2002, before the job of chronicling UFO sightings went to a group called Scandinavian UFO Information.

Feb 12, 2009 – NASA Ames Research Center astrobiologist Lynn Rothschild debated the topic of alien life with the Vatican Observatory’s director emeritus George Coyne. The Catholic Church opened to the idea of life on other planets, with the head of the Vatican observatory, José Gabriel Funes, conceding the possibility of extra-terrestrial life.

Feb 21, 2009 The Canadian Government authorized open public access to thousands of federal government documents concerning UFOs. A total of 9500 digitized documents spanning the years 1947 to the early 1980s were made available through the Library and Archives Canada website.

April 20, 2009 – Former Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell, who made the longest moonwalk in history, said alien life does exist and the US government is blocking the information from getting out. Mitchell addressed the issue of extraterrestrial life at the National Press Club in Washington.

July 19, 2009 – Former astronaut Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the Moon, claimed in a C-SPAN interview that there’s a monolith on one of the moons of Mars. Some observers said that the recent wave of qualified comments and classified files released by various governments are part of a slow and lengthy but well orchestrated UFO disclosure.

July 21, 2009 The Russian Navy declassified its records of UFO encounters, many of which took place in or around water, according to the web site of the English-language Russian news channel Russia Today. “They are most often seen in the deepest part of the Atlantic Ocean, in the southern part of the Bermuda Triangle, and also in the Caribbean Sea,” said one intelligence officer. In perhaps the most compelling account, military divers in Siberia’s Lake Baikal, the world’s deepest lake, encountered humanoid creatures dressed in silvery suits at a depth of 160 feet. Three people reportedly died during that naval chase.

August 17, 2009 – A former head of the British armed forces told the defence secretary a UFO claim known as Britain’s Roswell could be a political embarrassment, according to newly released files. In 1985 Lord Hill-Norton wrote to Michael Heseltine about the “Rendlesham incident” in 1980, when US airmen in Suffolk said they saw strange lights. He said an unknown aircraft may have entered and left UK airspace.

At the dawn of our social development, humans believed that the sky or firmament was the abode of spirits. In most traditions, a spirit was a ghost or being without a material body. The sky as seen from Earth was called “the heavens” and was accepted in various doctrines as the dwelling place of God and angels –– as well as the blessed after death. Most religions looked upon the spirit as an intelligent life force or “soul.”

qlifeThe introduction of modern science finally consigned ghosts and spirits to the fantasy zone of delusions and superstitions. In our day, eminent reasoned thinkers are in charge of our scientific and educational systems. But the swift growth of astrobiology in the past few years has presented an exceptional challenge. Several popular theories have been proposed about the possible basis of alien life. The latest phase in the critical analysis of extraterrestrial life now focuses on what physicist and astrobiologist Paul Davies recently described as “Q-life.”

“A century and a half after Charles Darwin published On The Origin of Species, the origin of life itself remains a stubborn mystery, and is deeply problematic. The simplest known living organism is already stupendously complex, and it is inconceivable that such an entity would arise spontaneously by chance self-assembly. Most researchers suppose that life began either with a set of self-replicating, digital-information-carrying molecules much simpler than DNA, or with a self-catalyzing chemical cycle that stored no precise genetic information but was capable of producing additional quantities of the same chemical mixture. Both these approaches focus on the reproduction of material substances, which is only natural because, after all, known life reproduces by copying genetic material. However, the key properties of life — replication with variation, and natural selection — do not logically require material structures themselves to be replicated. It is sufficient that information is replicated. This opens up the possibility that life may have started with some form of quantum replicator: Q-life, if you like.”

Q-life –– set apart as a “life form without material structure” –– ironically harks back to our ancient belief in spirits. According to Professor Davies, the benefit of simply copying information at the quantum level, instead of building rigid duplicate molecular structures, is speed: “Q-life can therefore evolve many orders of magnitude faster than chemical life,” Davies pointed out. The environment of theoretical Q-life is unclear, but the surfaces of interstellar grains or the interiors of comets could allow “low-temperature environments with rich physical and chemical potential.”

The possibility of a quantum replicator became evident in 2007, when an international panel from the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Max Planck Institute of Germany, and the University of Sydney found that under certain conditions galactic dust “comes alive” in outer space. The panel’s chief researcher, V.N. Tsytovich, announced that microscopic corkscrew shapes (helixes and double helixes) could form “spontaneously” in interstellar space. As they have memory and the power to reproduce, the helical strands show the necessary properties to meet the criteria for life. Since that affirmative disclosure, NASA scientists have given weight to a search for what they now call “weird life” –– organisms that lack DNA or other molecules found in life on Earth.

Quantum mechanics predicts that a proton can probably tunnel through the potential barrier separating quantum states of a DNA base pair, thus producing genetic mutations. “Mutations are the driver of evolution,” Davies wrote. “So in this limited sense, quantum mechanics is certainly a contributory factor to evolutionary change.” But how did Q-life evolve into familiar organic life? A possible scenario proposed by Davies is that common bio-molecules were derived by Q-life as a dynamic back-up information storage process.

“A good analogy is a computer. The processor is incredibly small and fast, but delicate: switch off the computer and the data are lost. Hence computers use hard disks to back up and store the digital information. Hard disks are relatively enormous and extremely slow, but they are robust and reliable, and they retain their information under a wide range of environmental insults. Organic life could have started as the slow-but-reliable ‘hard-disk’ of Q-life. Because of its greater versatility and toughness, it was eventually able to literally ‘take on a life of its own’, disconnect from its Q-life progenitor and spread to less-specialized and restrictive environments — such as Earth.”  (Paul Davies, “The quantum life,” physicsworld.com – July 1, 2009.)

Cambridge astronomers Fred Hoyle and Chandra Wickramasinghe first took up the question of quantum life in the 1970s, when they said that self-organizing plasma in interstellar space could have the form of a panspermia life cloud. In 2008, Arvydas Tamulis of Vilnius University described a comparable kind of Q-life progenitor as a molecular quantum computer able to absorb energy from stars, perform digital functions, and travel through interstellar space by means of radiation pressure. A quantum computer cloud in space would use photoactive molecules to convert light energy to floating point operations at extremely low temperatures.

Since a Q-life cloud meets the key criteria for life, but does not require any material substance, it bizarrely suits the limit for an intelligent spirit. The paradigm of a sentient computer cloud also helped to add some details to current reasoning that plasma has willpower –– and water has memory. Emergence theory describes the way complex systems and patterns crop up from simple interactions. For example, the self-organization of plasma (an ionized gas) leads to the formation of membranes, which eventually partition a cell’s genetic material.

Duke University engineer Adrian Bejan and Penn State biologist James Marden recently put forward the idea that “complexity is a function of flow.” Bejan’s 1996 constructal law is based on the principle that flow systems evolve to balance and minimize friction or other forms of resistance so that the least amount of useful energy is lost. The efficiency of a flow system increases as its branching design components become more complex. Since matter is not required for Q-life, it involves only the flow of information. Hence the “will” of a quantum plasma cloud perhaps is merely to fluctuate –– and flow into more complex patterns with a tendency to become smart. This is also called the physics of evolution.

In 1988, French scientist Jacques Benveniste published a controversial paper in Nature, which indicated that water has “memory” –– and is forever trying to get back to where it was. Some researchers now conjecture that water is capable of containing a memory of particle configurations within its molecular structure, which could also trigger access to electromagnetic signaling.

qlife2It was recently discovered that plants, animals, and even isolated microbes converse or “talk” to each other with molecular signals (external hormones) called pheromones. Today, we know there are alarm pheromones, food trail pheromones, sex pheromones, and many others that affect life through a sort of sixth sense (most likely related to smell and taste). Assortments of plants emit distress pheromones when grazed upon. Ants mark their trail with pheromones. And a number of organisms use pheromones to attract their mates from a distance of two or more miles.

It is now understood that water is an ideal pheromone-signaling pathway. The surface tension of liquids could retain the pH memory of a pheromone source –– allowing water to store up information (aggregation pheromone concentrations) rather like a hard disk. Pheromones have been shown to act as single molecules or as a mix of chemicals that evolved into an extraordinary system of micro communication. Results of up to date research into water’s memory of structural correlations have allegedly verified that “water even remembers whether it has been recently hot or cold.”

A potential environment for theoretical Q-life was plausibly foretold in 2005, when Professor Stephen Hawking worked on the “information paradox” and announced that information was not lost in black holes. Scientists had previously imagined that nothing could ever escape from a black hole. But it was determined that event horizon quantum fluctuations could allow information to seep out from a black hole. Hawking said that information configured below the atom in size could flow through black holes without wiping out structural complexity –– and be retrieved in parallel universes.

A new discipline called evolutionary developmental biology, or colloquially, evo-devo, was granted its own division in major universities. Leading scientists, from geneticists to paleontologists, published reports and attended symposiums that presented Q-life as a black-hole-analogous reproductive system. The New Yorker magazine covered topical findings in biology and wrote, “Some of the biggest have come from the new science of evo devo.”

A few of the strange and wonderful areas now under discussion are black hole intelligence mergers, intrauniversal intelligences, and new universe creation. Today, the most powerful Q-life computer cloud in space is thought to be the event horizon of an intelligent black hole.

It appears that even the Vatican is paying attention to the new sphere of evolutionary developmental biology. Given that it embodies the event horizon or “Omega Point” (singularity) of an intelligent black hole, sentient Q-life in the universe probably exists beyond our customary sense of space and time. It outwardly emerges from an untold multiverse, and most likely cannot be created or destroyed. On the face of it, Q-life is equivalent to eternal life. For this reason, the transcendent locale of Q-life is amazingly similar to the miraculous realm of God and angels. Pope Benedict XVI recently made a reference to the late French Jesuit scientist and philosopher Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, who offered an evolutionary theology claiming that all creation is developing towards the Omega Point, which he identified with Christ as the Logos of God. Attesting to a renovation of the world as foretold by St. Paul, Pope Benedict said, “It’s the great vision that later Teilhard de Chardin also had: At the end we will have a true cosmic liturgy, where the cosmos becomes a living host.”

In 2007, Ruth Gledhill of the London Times interviewed Britain’s foremost atheist, the evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins. When asked about the possibility of design by a cosmic intelligence, Dawkins replied: “But that gigantic intelligence itself would need an explanation. It’s not enough to call it God, it would need some sort of explanation such as evolution.”

facesThe odd notion that skeptics might one day demand an explanation from an intelligent Q-life replicator seems brashly outrageous to many of us. Helical strands of “weird life” take shape spontaneously in interstellar space –– apparently not by evolution or a gradual development from earlier forms. Even so, hulking cynics scoff at a cosmic intelligence by writing it off as the “Flying Spaghetti Monster.”

Since religion’s true mission is to encourage friendship with God, perhaps members of the clergy need to consider the link between perception and the geometry of Q-life –– and to explore its impact on human behavior and emotions. Recent studies at Florida State University and the University of Vienna confirmed that people see human facial features in the front end of automobiles, and ascribe various personality traits to their cars. “One-third of the subjects associated a human or animal face with at least 90 percent of the cars.” If humans can interpret inanimate structures in biological terms even if presented in abstract ways, how would they interpret Q-life?  For emotional bonding to come about, a Q-life progenitor must not be imagined as an inanimate object or “thing,” but as a highly evolved living being –– with as much intelligence as necessary to initiate new universe creation.

In 1964 the Soviet astronomer Nikolai Kardashev proposed a system to determine the measure of an alien civilization. The most advanced civilization is a Type III or IV civilization that would harness the power of an entire galaxy and tap into the energy produced from a super massive black hole. A Q-life progenitor sending out information at the event horizon of a black hole to merge from a singularity is the best runner for a Type III or IV civilization. Such hypothetical life clouds –– bearing information without material structures –– are so highly developed that in all probability they are immortal.

Gerard ‘t Hooft and Leonard Susskind recently proposed the holographic principle, which suggests the universe is akin to a giant hologram. David Bohm, Karl Pribram, and Michael Talbot talk about the “whole in every part” nature of a hologram as a new way of understanding reality. Every part of a hologram contains all the information possessed by the whole. If a hologram of an object is cut in half and illuminated by a laser, each half will still contain the entire image of the object. Consequently, information around an event horizon could be pictured as a “Master Hologram” that imparts its thermodynamic symmetries of order and entropy (or archetypal law and revolt). All self-gravitating systems in the universe would be holographic reflections of that Master Hologram. Each and every system would duplicate an allocation scheme according to a “best fit” principle that minimizes wasted resource space while reproducing the positive and negative correlations of the Master Hologram.

In other words, “familiar objects and chronological events” on Earth could be the mirror images of a Master Hologram, modified to simulate our terrestrial best fit. (So too, would every effect in all self-gravitating systems.) Thus, the thermodynamic distortion of  “world wars” on Earth could find its cosmic parallel as an equivalent rebellious struggle on other life-sustaining planets. In a planetary system without organic structures, the Master Hologram’s best fit could adjust the thermodynamic distortion to appear as a massive red spot of gas –– for example. If the cosmic holographic principle proves to be technically valid, alien civilizations could be holographic resemblances of the Master Hologram – and of us.

Microbiologists recently found that friendly bacteria account for about 90% of the cells in the human body. Some could even be cases of “weird life.” What happens to our friendly microbes when we die? While the body itself might be clinically dead, up to 90% of its cells could continue to live and connect to convection fields or subterranean water basins. Are we holographic copies of Q-life clouds?

Strange Things I Don´t Talk About

Strange Things I Don´t Talk About

By Peter Fotis Kapnistos

thingsIn my lifetime I have experienced a few incidents that might be described as Fortean because they remain outside the recognized theories of science. Altogether, there were really only four or five such anomalous occurrences in my whole life and they took place years apart. But even so, I remember them in detail because they remain unexplained. I suspect that many ordinary people also experience extraordinary things but don´t talk about them for fear of being laughed at.

I personally don´t have a problem with making people chuckle. The way I see it, it´s a lot better than making people weep. So if you have a psychological need to giggle at something you can´t explain, go right ahead. It´s an excellent fear-repression mechanism. But listen closely to what I have to say.

Paul Dale Roberts, a paranormal investigator and writer recently interviewed me. He put forward a range of questions on the subjects of UFOs and Men in Black (MIBs) that I encountered several years ago. I also touched upon research in remote viewing conducted by the US Navy from 1972 until 1995. L.R. Bremseth, then a Navy commander, described it as a broad-based “transcendent and asymmetrical” research program. But there were some other matters that Paul Dale Roberts didn´t ask me about because they have no obvious link to UFOs. There are a few strange things I don´t talk about.

A most baffling incident happened to me one warm summer evening when I was walking alone. It was somewhere around three or four o´clock in the morning. The streets were empty and the neighborhood was silent as I nonchalantly made my way home after a get-together with a few friends. When I arrived at the intersection lights of two small streets near my house, I carefully looked in each direction to make sure no cars were coming. The junction was undisturbed and the narrow streets were abandoned. Nobody was outside except me. But I suddenly noticed something dim and small rapidly moving toward me from about half a block away. I was standing in the middle of the intersection and thought it could have been a dark cat or perhaps even a large rat running after me. The small dark thing was moving fast and when it approached me I quickly jumped in the air to prevent it from biting my foot. It abruptly stopped next to me. I cautiously crouched down to see what it was and was absolutely amazed by what I saw. It was a big cluster of muddy grapes. Where it came from, I do not know. How it scuttled along the street, I have no idea. There are some things I don´t talk about.

blogad35I realize there´s much symbolism to the grapevine. But I´m the type of person who looks for scientific explanations for bizarre experiences. This one really had me stumped. The only rationalization I am able to provide is a long shot. In 2008, researchers discovered single-celled organisms about the size of a grape on the seafloor near the Bahamas. These large single cells (called Gromia sphaerica) can actually scurry along the seafloor. Cosmologist Paul Davies recently speculated that a space-faring civilization could build miniature probes to explore the galaxy, perhaps no bigger than your palm. Such so-called “von Neumann probes” may act as roaming life forms the size of grapes from an extraterrestrial civilization. I told you it was a long shot. But if you can come up with a better explanation that doesn’t involve phantasms, please let me know.

About two years later, I visited Israel during the summer months because I wanted to see the old town of Jerusalem. Entering the ancient walled city was like taking a journey into the past. Unfortunately, there was much political tension in those days and soldiers with machine guns patrolled the streets at night. But that didn´t stop me from slipping past the guards and climbing up to the Mount of Olives where I found a comfortable spot to sit and gaze down upon Jerusalem and meditate every night. After doing that for a few consecutive evenings, one night I saw a small ball of light suddenly materialize in front of me as I sat in the grass. It seemed slightly larger than a ping-pong ball but looked smaller than a tennis ball. It was a bright sphere of continuous white light, not flashing, and seemed to float about four or five feet off the ground. It drifted slowly in front of me, from my right to my left, and traveled approximately thirty or forty feet before it abruptly evaporated.

Unlike the grape cluster, there is scientific recognition of this fact. It´s called ball lightning. According to Dr. Keith Heidorn, a similar phenomenon called St. Elmo’s fire can also appear on leaves, grass, and even at the tips of cattle horns. Prof. Colin Price, head of the Geophysics and Planetary Sciences Department at Tel Aviv University, said thunderstorms are the catalyst for a newly discovered natural phenomenon he calls sprites, described as flashes high in the atmosphere.

The exact cause and nature of ball lightning has yet to be determined; there may be several different types, confusing matters further. But generally it manifests as a grapefruit-sized sphere of light moving slowly through the air which may end by fizzling out or exploding. (David Hambling, “Scientist Looks to Weaponize Ball Lightning,” WIRED, February 20, 2009)

Even though scientists don´t know what causes ball lightning, at least they have a name for it. It seems that it may be a sporadic phenomenon in Israel. Uri Geller, the world´s most investigated paranormalist, said that at the age of four he had an encounter with a mysterious ball of light while in a garden near his house in Israel. He said that he chased after it and was actually hit in the head by the “sphere of light.” This might sound like a childhood flight of the imagination, but many years later an elderly Israeli man named Yaakov Avrahami recalled that while he was once walking to a bus station he witnessed a ball of light. “At that certain moment I noticed a little boy with a white shirt come out from the building to the left. This light ball stopped like it sensed him. Suddenly it moved backwards towards the little boy.”

Journalist Anthony Bragalia says that UFOs are both amorphous and solid. They appear as “lightforms” as often as they appear to be constructed of metal. Bragalia claims that in the coming months newly discovered information will be released revealing that the US government conducted some very interesting studies which, when published, will provide stunning insights.

Some of the aerial “plasma light” phenomena appears to be self-organized and self-directed, even exhibiting some type of intelligence. They can hover, move instantly, morph shape, blink out then reappear elsewhere… or fade into nothingness. Explanations have been proffered that the lights are unknown natural earth or atmospheric events or processes. Maybe they somehow relate to piezoelectricity, ions, earth lights — or unique combinations of these things. Or even still, some feel they may be some sort of unknown aerial life forms. (Anthony Bragalia, “UFOs and the States of Matter,” The UFO Reality, February 12, 2009)

The coincidental timing of my ball lightning experience is what symbolically matters to me. I can now say that “I saw the light” while meditating on the Mount of Olives over Jerusalem. But Uri Geller apparently caught it right between the eyes. Since the nature of ball lightning still remains unknown to scientists, we can´t rule out the possibility of a von Neumann probe in this case either. Observing a celestial probe might be amazing, but having one transferred into your forehead would truly be remarkable.

“The Men Who Stare at Goats” is a 2004 non-fiction book by Jon Ronson, and a movie based on the book, starring George Clooney, about the US Army’s exploration of the potential military applications of the paranormal. The title refers to attempts to kill goats by staring at them. According to David Hambling of WIRED magazine, Dr. Paul Koloc briefly obtained funding in 2002 from the Missile Defense Agency to create stable “magnetoplasmoids” or ball lightning a foot in diameter which would last between one and five seconds and accelerate to two hundred kilometers a second. This would make an idea anti-missile weapon, generating an intense electromagnetic pulse on impact. The USAF´s Phillips Laboratory supposedly examined a very similar concept in 1993.

Shortly before my father´s death, the hands of a small clock in my kitchen started moving counter-clockwise. We assumed that it was because the clock needed new batteries. When my father was placed in an intensive care unit after enduring a heart attack and a broken hip, I remained at home to watch over my ailing mother. As I prayed for my father´s health, I suddenly felt a mild breeze of air move from the left side of my body to the right. I sensed at that moment that my father had passed away. I looked at the clock in the living room. It was eight-twenty in the evening and I said so to my sister. When we later got our doctor´s hospital report, the exact hour of my father´s death was 8:20 PM. A few days later, our next-door neighbor happened to be visiting us. Because she was near the telephone, she answered it when it rang. It was a man´s voice. He asked about a family member. When my neighbor asked who the caller was, he replied that he was my father — and promptly hung up. Unless that was a heartless prank, it resembled various reports of so-called “dead ringers,” or phone calls from the dead. In many instances the cell or landline numbers had even been disconnected. But they still appeared on caller ID.

Every time the living picks up the phone all they hear on the other end is static. There have been instances of those who receive the calls recording them only to find voices in the recording that were not perceptible to the human ear at the time.

The Death and Resurrection of Mars

A popular website has built a minor-league reputation regularly nit-picking about “UFOs and the Death of God.” Citing Nietzsche´s schizophrenia and welcoming an existentiality that it presumes to be real, its most recent report claims “some in the UFO community replace God with UFOs for psychological reasons.”

That argument vaguely reminds us of the “Death of Mars” attitude. Scientists have long reflected on the possibility of life on Mars. In the 17th century, after telescopic observation by some observers of apparent Martian canals, it was natural to suppose that some form of life may inhabit Mars. But in 1894, U.S. astronomer William Campbell wrongly showed that water and oxygen were not present in the Martian atmosphere. By the early 1900s, the canal theory was no longer supported. In 1965, NASA scientists unhappily described a parched Mars without rivers, oceans or any signs of life. Mars was officially dead. But today all that has changed. The discovery of abundant sources of water on Mars, together with vast stores of methane gas have most researchers believing once again that Mars is alive and well.

Advocates of the “God is Dead” hypothesis may also be in for a big surprise. According to Paul Davies, there could be microbes that do not have the standard biochemistry of Earth-dwelling organisms. Davies and other leading researchers now think that an amazing realm of “life as we don´t know it” may exist around us. Scientists would never have identified such “weird life” because the techniques they use for studying microbes are based on the familiar biological processes that drive the living things we understand.

Some microbes may also have a means of carrying genetic information and replicating themselves that is not based on DNA, or that has extra DNA “letters.” These microbes could exist in extreme environments such as deep underground or in hot springs, or they could even live inside other organisms, including ourselves. “They might be right in front of our noses, or even in our noses,” Professor Davies said. (Mark Henderson, “Aliens ‘may be living among us’ undetected by science,” Times Online, February 15, 2009)

As one observer noted, the Bible clearly talks about life that is not based in DNA, realms of created beings that are not physical. Over eighty percent of the US population believes in God because that inkling appears to be hard-wired in our genes. The remaining twenty percent don´t believe because they have a psychological need (or guilt) not to. They argue that God is “too good to be true.” It is ironic that the English name God actually stems from the words “the good.” If you remove the possibility of an ultimate good, then you´re left with an ultimate banality. Are you good at what you do? Are you good at your job? Are you good in bed? Twenty percent of the US population has abandoned all trust in “the good” and by extension even attempts to identify the entire universe as an object of banality and mayhem. But they can only speak for themselves.

The “God is Dead” campaigners say God cannot possibly exist because he abandoned his people many times over the millennia, and more unspeakably during the Holocaust. Sir David Attenborough, a prominent agnostic and distinguished BBC television naturalist, recently said he rejects the Bible because a loving God would not allow an innocent child in Africa to have its eye destroyed by a parasitic worm. However, he failed to mention that there is still hope for that child if modern science turns away from warfare and concentrates on the healing arts. Perhaps what Sir David really means is: why would God allow an innocent Jesus to be crucified? The answer to that, we are told, is to teach us the importance of courage. Modern man has become a cowardly creature that destroys innocent life in underprivileged nations with push-button ease, while he gradually becomes a vile object of morbid obesity and banality. God´s death was to teach us the worth of valor — and that death cannot hold Him.

It is argued that many “deranged people in the UFO community” have taken to hallucinating about being taken to Him. But can you think of a medical specialist on appendicitis who has never actually seen a human appendix? Or how about a certified critic of hip hop music that´s never heard a single African American or Latino American song? They would probably be regarded as con artists, not authorities. Why then, are there so many official “UFO investigators” that have never seen a UFO — and really don´t want to because they fear it will make them appear to be unreasonable? Where is the expert common sense in that?

Imagine being a civilian in the Iraqi war (or any war for that matter). One day you look out your front door and see a large armored vehicle parked directly outside your house and perhaps a few soldiers patrolling your street with cameras and searchlights. Would you really suppose that the soldiers don´t notice you and that they don´t know who you are? You´d have to be pretty naïve to think that. It would be far more realistic to assume that they know exactly who you are — and they will probably keep tabs on you from time to time. This is how I interpret UFO experiencers: They are known and made use of by intelligent extraterrestrials to circulate and publicize particular facts of the UFO enterprise.

What is happening now appears to be a bizarre form of psychological warfare. We are being literally bombarded with countless sightings and photographs of unidentified aerial objects to drive home the intimidating point that something beyond the scope of human science is watching over our planet. There are simply too many reliable reports flowing in to be dismissed as hallucinations or frauds. Why then, doesn´t the government just admit that UFOs are real? Perhaps because the largest part of taxpayer money goes to an overwhelming defense budget. The last message the Defense Department wants to convey is the likely fact that it cannot defend us from potential UFO upheavals (as if we didn´t know by now). That would be an outright acknowledgment that billions of our dollars are being wasted. So instead, it plays the flightless ostrich game of hiding its head in the sand. Sixty years ago, the Japanese government chose to ignore warnings that America was developing a secret weapon. Japan´s ostrich game suffered a legendary defeat and the state religion of Emperor worship was banned. I don´t have a problem with making people laugh. But there are some things I don´t talk about.
