I'm a US Navy Sailor -- My Warship Was Buzzed by UFO That Shone Dazzling Spotlight on Us & It Wasn't Human Technology - ...
Thu, 02 Feb 2023 16:37:28 GMT
We begin with claims from a recent Weaponized podcast about the 2019 Naval "buzzings." The Naval imagery on these overflights admittedly hasn't been "first class," which brings up the Forbes article Why Are UFOs Still Blurry? A Conversation With David Brin. Not sure Calum Chace's article answers that conundrum completely, but in it we learn about "Brin's Corollary to Moore's Law," a great deal about Brin's interesting NASA work, and lots regarding his various fiction and non-fiction books. Back to the active news as a UFO Expert Shares Stunning Details about Alleged 1945 Alien Encounter before Roswell. Nick Pope has hitched himself to the Jacques Vallee-Paola Harris Trinity book's wagon and Vallee's recent hints that their work got the start date for a required DoD overview moved two years before 1947 and Roswell. Kevin Randle has much more to say about that Trinity UFO Crash, UAPs and Jacques Vallee. He and his discussants cover much of the controversy. (WM)

German Woman Allegedly Kills Doppelganger in Order to Fake Her Own Death - Coast to Coast
Thu, 02 Feb 2023 16:37:27 GMT
The human mind has a strange and sometimes dangerous landscape, as demonstrated by today's stories. In what was likely an attempt to avoid a family dispute, a woman used her Instagram account to phish for women who looked very similar to herself. When she finally got the bite she was looking for, she promptly met the unsuspecting victim and murdered her, making it appear that she herself had died. Some people will go to any length to avoid apologizing. And then there are Tulpas: Creating Dangerous Creatures That Are Born Out of Our Minds. When enough individuals become focused on the same twisted thought, things start happening. Internet creations like Slenderman become real. Nightmares begin living in our basements that are far worse than mould. It's the law of attraction gone dark. (CM)

UFO-shaped Cloud Stuns Eyewitnesses in Turkey - CNN
Thu, 02 Feb 2023 16:37:26 GMT
If you haven't heard/seen this spectacular sight of what looks more like a giant "ET-ear" than an "ET-container," CNN's got a short video and explanation for you. Tim Binnall offers what look more like Odd 'UFO' Clouds Spotted Over Central Texas. At least folks of all ages in The City of New Braunfels made that association. And people in our 50th state wondered the same as a Mysterious 'Whirlpool' Appears in the Night Sky above Hawaii. The BBC has some nice time-lapse photography of this marvel. And closer to Earth (actually water!), Mysterious Whiting Events in the Ocean Have Scientists Baffled. BGR Science's Joshua Hawkins says "[S]ome possible theories are floating around" for these strange and ballooning blossoms of calcium carbonate, but definitions don't easily emerge for the florescences. One wonders, given the recent burgeoning of the whitish patches "that appear in our oceans, lakes, and other bodies of water around the world," just how long this has been going on and if humans somehow could contribute to periodic mollusk "die-offs."

UFO Hunter Claims 'Aliens Will Land on Earth in 2023' after Visiting Big Ben - Mirror
Wed, 01 Feb 2023 16:29:54 GMT
Studying fans and lore about even mechanical things like, say, automobiles can be fascinating in itself as well as helpful "practically speaking." With ufology, it goes on steroids. Charlotte Hawes gives us prophecies, favorite landmarks, some standard UFO-related memes, conspiracy theories, and coincidences to start off yet another "turning point" year. And more opportunities surround this article that "Mirrors" portions of the human imagination. Things get more serious (and personal) as a Missouri Man Witnessing 3 Cigar-shaped UFOs Was Observed by Humanoids Like He Was an Insect in a Jar. A purported 1987 event has listeners pondering. Even folks whose business involves being stared at can have unnerving encounters, for Miley Cyrus Claims She "Was Chased Down" by a UFO. Best Life entertainment and culture writer Karen Fratti relates a 2020 Cyrus interview and names names of numerous other stars who claim, well, encounters with the "Stars." Continuing that appropriately Far Out theme—and perhaps for the older set among us—film writer Arun Starkey gives us Five Movie Stars Who Claim to Have Seen UFOs. (WM)

900 Bears Per Bigfoot: New Statistical Analysis Finds That Many Sasquatch Encounters Are Likely Misidentified Bear Sight...
Wed, 01 Feb 2023 16:29:53 GMT
First up is a statistical study looking at Bigfoot sightings across all of Canada and the US. The conclusion of the study is that most Bigfoot sightings are actually black bears, which seems a careless conclusion given no one has ever described Bigfoot with little fuzzy ears or a big hairy butt. Clearly whoever conducted the bear research has never actually encountered a bear; I have. This next report should make uneasy hikers feel safer in the woods though. Since we know Bigfoot isn't the only one who makes shelters out of sticks, we're willing to entertain this rather amusing report where a Teacher Explains Why There Are Often Dens Made Out of Large Sticks in Forests. It's all rather tongue in cheek, so you're in for a bit of a giggle as well as some food for thought. (CM)

Venezuela: The First UFO Photo of 2023 - Inexplicata
Wed, 01 Feb 2023 16:29:52 GMT
First 2023 sightings South of the Border begin with what seems like a "classic" blimp or dirigible. Hector Escalante says this photo was taken on January 7th. Oscar Sierra states for Costa Rica: Increase in UFO Sightings Forecasted for 2023. When connecting sightings to natural and human-caused calamities whose turmoil affects society, Sierra seems to confuse increased reports with increased numbers of phenomena whose identification resists competent study. Mexico: UFO Sightings at Mount Popocatepetl illustrates some of these problems. We appreciate the photographer's noncommittal title for her photograph. But what to make of Scarleth Perez' article Mexico: Family Has Allegedly "Lived with UFOs" for 30 Years. From 1987 to 2009 the Falcon-Ochoa family claimed periodic sightings, still allege visitations of sorts, and "scour the skies looking for the aliens they consider friends." (WM)

UFO Exploitation: The 1956 Texas Photo Fumble - The Saucers That Time Forgot
Tue, 31 Jan 2023 16:31:42 GMT
Curt Collins begins our trip back into ufology's controversial past with yet another interesting discussion of a relatively poorly-known case. Then we journey Inside the Fascinating World of Valley of The Dawn, The UFO-Based Religion Founded By A Brazilian Truck Driver. The article's View Gallery covers the aesthetics of this remarkable "New UFO Religion," while Erin Kelly's text makes one want to learn more about its history. Next Tanner F. Boyle relates another kind of enthusiasm in It's Always Sunny in Gulf Breeze, Florida, Pt. 1. Boyle's subject is the "Gulf Breeze Six" soldiers who in 1990 went AWOL from their Augsburg, Germany, intelligence posts on a religious mission. The already-involved story gets even stranger in It's Always Sunny in Gulf Breeze, Florida, Pt. 2. Tanner F. Boyle's subtitle "Ed Walters (Possible Antichrist) Photographs a UFO & Battles Its Crew" adds an even more famously contentious element to the developing odyssey. More to Come! (WM)

Hidden in Plain Sight - Ashley Knibb
Tue, 31 Jan 2023 16:31:41 GMT
The collection of data in paranormal or psychical research is a tricky endeavor because the ways do not always justify the means. This first article points out what should be obvious to any true researcher: If we have to rely on falsehoods to create the environment wherein data is collected, can we really claim to have learned anything true? Does truth even exist under such circumstances? (The Entity Letters book mentioned in the article was written by Jim McClenon and published by Anomalist Books.) This next project may at least partially resolve that issue. Open-Sourced Image Database Provides New Data for Parapsychological Research, and volunteers are needed to qualify the numerous but standardized categories of images. The intention behind this labor intensive project is to provide a consistent baseline whereby remote viewing can be both quantified and qualified. Interested parties can learn more about this opportunity here. (CM)

Getting to Know Gobekli Tepe - Daily Grail
Tue, 31 Jan 2023 16:31:40 GMT
Sometimes we're reminded of Douglas Adams' "the secret is to bang the rocks together, guys" welcome from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Greg Taylor leads with a virtual tour of the pre-Neolithic site, a comprehensive interview with an excavation veteran, and references to more information. Stephen Luntz says of Gobekli Tepe: Myths of World's Oldest Temple Being An Astronomical Observatory Flourish. Luntz lists several of the more popular theories for the monument's purpose, himself opting for "religious purposes"—though the term "temple" itself might be too restrictive. And we are reminded of Karahan Tepe: The Stunning "Sister" Of Gobekli Tepe Is Just As Mysterious. The pillars in Tom Hale's piece reinforce a fashion proven in the first article's interview to have a wider "spread" in geography and time than most realize. A more compact prehistoric puzzler has two researchers on the horns of a dilemma and asking for help. Tim Binnall's Mysterious Stone Carving Stumps Archaeologists in England has the details as the "Nessglyph" hides its identity in stony silence. (WM)

On the Use of 'UAP' ... and Speaking of Which: The First-in-a-while Academic Conference on the Subject of UAP Studies - ...
Mon, 30 Jan 2023 16:31:20 GMT
Mike Cifone first dwells upon the very term now fashionable for the topic and its actual origins. He then moves to what may be the ultimate stratagem: gathering those who have seriously studied the subject to share their data, and their hypotheses, conjectures, and conclusions—and how the latter arose from the former. Mike discusses the philosophical distinction between what is and how we construe it. Through his journal Limina and upcoming symposium "Foundations, Frontiers and Future Prospects of UAP Studies," he wants to explore such "foundational" aspects behind UAP discourse. Next, Tanner F. Boyle explores the difficulties of dealing with an original experience, especially where that initial event is anomalous and possibly even manufactured, in Gerry Irwin's UFO-Induced Amnesia. Boyle highly recommends David Booher's No Return: The Gerry Irwin Story, UFO Abduction or Covert Operation? (Anomalist Books). Booher gets special praise for first acquiring and presenting the case data and for thoughtfully considering the larger possibilities behind this very strange, even compelling, individual experience. Lastly, Billy Cox says Nice Try, PBS for a made-for-tv dramatization of what an "alien near-contact" might mean for Earth's cultural, intellectual, psychological, and emotional mix. Billy's subtitle "Next time, try dealing with UFOs a little closer to Earth" will likely have readers nodding in reflexive agreement. But there's a deeper level: after digesting Billy's article they might never again regard that piece of broccoli on their dinner plate in quite the same way! (WM)

Paranormal Activity Is All in Your Head, and This Could Explain Why - Science Alert
Mon, 30 Jan 2023 16:31:19 GMT
Feeling skeptical? We have two reports that are eyebrow raising, to say the least. This first piece describes correlations found between sleep disturbances and a belief in the paranormal, for example, exploding head syndrome and and a belief in aliens. Given the absence of a randomized sample or any control group, we feel pretty confident that the reverse is true—that people with sleep disturbances find paranormal explanations when their doctors are unable to find causation. But hey, we're not the "experts". This next piece looks at a strange phenomenon sweeping Europe: Poking Holes in Needle-Spiking. It seems being drugged by a covert needle jab has replaced getting your drink roofied in clubs. But while victims insist they felt pin pricks prior to becoming dizzy or weak, no easily injectable drugs have been found in their systems. That means there's either a new undetectable drug out there, or a whole lot of embarrassed and unoriginal drinkers who overindulged. You do the math. (CM)

UFOs and Reality - UFO Conjectures
Mon, 30 Jan 2023 16:31:18 GMT
Rich Reynolds ponders the nearly-imponderable in several essays. His remarks here resonate with one Dr. Thomas Bullard made about trying to explain one unknown by reference to another. Nor is Thinking Your Way into a UFO Explanation going to work. "Nope! The UFO phenomenon is beyond reach for now and as ever" says Rich, and enumerates why. Nonetheless, Rich next considers the question whether Electro-magnetism is a Clue to What UFOs Are? He's not positive about that current thinking. In Being and Nothingness: A Non-Sartrean Observation Rich touches upon an old refrain of his, which is transposed into a different realm in the comments section. And we are reminded of the thoughtful quality of Rich's discussants. Rich then remarks that The UFO Field and Its Community of Enthusiasts Are Really Discombobulated. Most will not agree with all of Rich's "Conjectures" presented as fact. But these are thrown out for consideration, reaction, and perhaps just possibly some efforts to improve however slightly, a field that could certainly benefit. (WM)

The Loch Ness Monster Absolutely Can't Be an Eel, Study Shows - Yahoo News
Sun, 29 Jan 2023 16:32:18 GMT
Years ago, just a hair before COVID became a way of life, headlines crowed about Nessie being a giant eel based upon a DNA survey of Loch Ness. Eels are a reasonable explanation, but reconciling eels with eyewitness reports of colossal nessie proves difficult per Floe Foxon's non-peer-reviewed submission to bioRxiv. Exactly how big can Anguilla anguilla grow? Karl Shuker would know and he'd probably go on to argue that Nessie was a giant frog too. He's all about anurans considering his latest essay taking him On The Road For Giant Toads through Australia, South America, Red China, and all points inbetween. While toads are fairly pedestrian, these specimens are far from ordinary and ought to urge caution next time you're milling about along that old creek. (CS)

Shared dreams are nothing new, but science taking a serious look at the phenomenon is relatively recent writes NyRee Ausler. Some of the conclusions are fairly grayface, desires for connection and closeness, but there's plenty of weirdness afoot leading NyRee to advise us how to share dreams for real.

The Search For Extraterrestrial Life As We Don't Know It - Scientific American
Sat, 28 Jan 2023 16:31:16 GMT
Artificial intelligences have been enlisted in the search for extraterrestrial life, SETI, because A.I. doesn't think like us. At least it wouldn't if AI was sentient. Recent developments in SETI, an unconvential field of inquiry with more of a basis in faith, has taken many different left turns at Albuquerque rather than embracing the bog-standard conventional wisdom from the past 50 years. What are they doing? Well that's for Sarah Scoles to reveal in her fascinating essay. Perhaps as a tease, Adam Mann wonders Is The Sun A Node In A Gigantic Alien Space Internet? Scientists scanned the skies to check for ET utilizing gravitational lensing to share alien nudes and trolling on alt.planet.zetareticuli returning a compelling conclusion. The latter two activities are based on the assumption ET is "like us" but consider Kevin Kelly's '12 Assumptions For Extraterrestrial Life' and jibe well with the aforementioned maverick approaches, except with aliens engaged in their own SETI programs. From Mark Frauenfelder to Christopher Palin at The Debrief, with apologies to Charles Fort, one starts looking for aliens starting anywhere. Yet having a clue for the best 'anywhere' to begin can be helpful. These Are The Top 5 Places And Times Humanity Is Likely To Discover Extraterrestrial Life. And much like the funhouse mirror always says, "It's later than you think!" (CS)

Did Future-Humans Visit Past-Humans In Mississippi? - The Observer

Despite the queer sketches of the aliens, Charles Hickson's hypnotic testimony insisting the aliens were people just makes such an argument markedly provocative. (CS)

Woman Who Was Clinically Dead For 15 Minutes Vividly Describes 5 Years She Spent In Heaven - Unilad
Sat, 28 Jan 2023 16:31:14 GMT
Who needs Einstein's relativity for time dilation when merely being dead can do the trick? Turns out that Dr. Linda Kramer died back in 2001 only to be surprised it wasn't 2006 upon her return. Joe Harker did the legwork for a full account of Dr. Kramer's experience, but leaves it vague if dying on the toilet contributed anything to the visions. Aligning at an oblique angle on the topic, Shannon Taggart spent a score of years photographing mediums at Lily Dale and found more questions than answers over that period. Join Jacqui Palumbo's encounter with A Photographer Who Spent Twenty Years Documenting Seánces while communining with the dead for a fascinating insight on mediumship and this curious upstate New York community.

New UAP Leaked Imagery from the DoD - The Black Vault

Hearing Voices? You’re Not Alone - Psychology Today
Fri, 27 Jan 2023 16:32:22 GMT
There is a fine line between mind and spirit and we're exploring that liminal space, starting with the topic of hearing voices. What's interesting is how the experience boils down to perception. What one person views as a sign of impending insanity, another will view as messages from their ancestors—fear vs comfort. Lucid dreaming, that state of awareness that one is dreaming, can also be impacted in a similar manner. Psychology Today presents Waking Up in the Dream: An Interview with Andrew Holecek, a foremost authority on the subject. Holocek is also an author and humanitarian, and he believes lucid dreaming is the key to cleansing our own perception, i.e. experiencing all things with greater lucidity. And of course, not everyone will view that through a positive lens. (CM)
