H A P P Y   N E W  Y E A R !!!

We Wish You All A Happy New Year

Here’s hoping you all had a wonderful holiday season and that we all have a fantastic new year as we proceed into 2018.

Book of the Week…

The Jung Society of Austin have alerted us to Jean Shinoda Bolen’s free online webinar “Gods of Every Woman and Man” on January 24th and the chance to attend their local Round Table Discussion at Trinity Church of Austin on January 26th. The Anomaly Archives used to house the Austin Jung Society’s library at our original location within the Human Potential Center on Bert Avenue. Later their library moved into the same space that the Anomaly Archives moved into in 2009: INACS‘s “Nerve Center” MindQuarters up in North West Austin where we’ve cohabitated for the past nine years. For the past several years the Jung Society’s Nisley Lending Library has been located within the New Life Institute.

In honor of those past community collaborations I’ve chosen one of Jean Bolen’s past literary works as our Book-Of-The-Week!

Meanwhile… Welcome to Our New Location!

We’ve begun moving into our new location in the heart of Central Austin, downtown, at the corner of the north IH-35 frontage road and Lambie Street. We previously reported that our new suite number was 256, however, that is incorrect. The New Suite Number is 260!

& IH35 Northbound Frontage Road.]

The move-in is still “in-process” but we’ll keep you posted about upcoming Grand-Opening / Open-House events. Monthly meetings are currently on hiatus. We hope to begin a new meeting schedule and regular lecture events soon. Anomaly Archives member John Hawkins is still leading monthly focused discussion forum meetings called, “The Third Door.” Contact John Hawkins for details.

The Tao of Psychology: Synchronicity and the Self

by Jean Shinoda Bolen

 

The Tao of Psychology 
Synchronicity & the Self 
by Jean Shinoda Bolen
Reviewed by SMiles

Jean Bolen is a Jungian analyst and psychiatrist with several wonderful books to her name. The Tao of Psychology is the perfect introduction to the parapsychology of meaning where synchronicity imbues greater significance to coincidental events in our every day lives. The book is brief and easy to read. She captures Jung’s ideas of archetypes and the collective unconscious perfectly, encouraging what she calls the Agatha Christie approach to detecting and analyzing synchronicity. She adds an important intuitive perspective by developing Jung’s thoughts as they relate to the ideas of the eastern Tao and I-Ching.

     “Synchronistic events are the clues that point to the existence of an underlying connecting principle. Whenever synchronicity occurs, the visible and tangible ‘ten thousand things’ are experienced as being aspects of the one, while the invisible matrix, that inexpressible, ineffable, unseen connection; the Tao, is the great mystery.”

Coincidences become synchronicities through a process identical to Jungian dream analysis. Symbolic interpretations are drawn when the patient/experiencer feels the connection of inner feeling and outer events. “Like a Waking Dream” we can experience existence as an aboriginal dreamtime:

     “The coincidental timing and symbolic quality of such events convince people of synchronicity. The coincidence is between a psychological situation and an outer accident, meeting, or event – in which the outer situation is a symbolic representation of the psychological struggle or conflict. It seems to me that synchronicity is frequent, but unless an individual has some insight into the psychological situation the symbolic coincidence is not appreciated. Like ignored dreams, they have no impact.”

Jean Bolen’s works are highly recommended. From her Goddesses in Everywoman and Gods in Everyman to Ring of Power and Crossing to Avalon. Her balanced perspectives are an asset to our future.

Holiday UFO Gifts To Unwrap…


The past two weeks have been quite a ride for folks interested in the UFO subject. The revelation of what many have suspected for a long time, that the Pentagon likely has ongoing projects investigating mysterious anomalous encounters, has ignited the media-sphere with discussion of this big UFO news. Some have known this was coming for over a year. Pop-punk icon turned paranormal media mogulTom DeLonge has been teasing such revelations for a long time and back on October 11th he made UFOlogical history with his social media streamed press teleconference launching his crowdfunded Public Benefit Corporation, To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science, that features a bevy of Deep State Intelligence Operatives on its founding board of advisors. It wasn’t until two weeks ago and the NYTimes’ media campaign’s rollout of the identity of the Pentagon’s Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program, that the extent and shape of this introductory “disclosure” began to be fleshed out by various investigative journalists both within and without the UFO research community.

At the Anomaly Archives’ File/Collection pages below you can find a fantastic collection of links to news and analysis of this latest and greatest UFO Media Flap!

Some of the most important links include…

  • October 11, 2017 – Louis Elizondo goes public at To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science press teleconference with Tom DeLonge, without naming the Pentagon’s AATIP. (YouTube Archive). Transcript of broadcast: click here.

 . . . Susan Lepselter, an anthropology professor at Indiana University Bloomington, pointed out that the times we live in have a lot to do with the fears that inform our thinking about UFOs — from the nuclear era to global warming.

“Our sense of precariousness is very high right now,” Lepselter tells us. “When you think about an alien or UFO, it reminds us we are all citizens of Earth.”

Book of the Week…

In 2005 I met the author of this issue’s Book-of-the-Week at the Anomaly Archives’ biggest ever event, the Texas Ghost Lights Conference featuring me as Master of Ceremonies with speakers including Rob Riggs, Nick Redfern, Paul Devereux, and … James Bunnell. Back in the Summer of 2016, Mr. Bunnell donated a number of books to the Anomaly Archives, including his own latest book and an archival DVD featuring his work on the Marfa Mystery Lights.

Book of the Week…

The Super Natural
A New Vision of the Unexplained
by Whitley Strieber & Jeffrey J. Kripal

From C. M. Mayo’s review…

“[i]f we, as scholars of religion, cannot take this text seriously, if we cannot interpret it in some satisfying fashion, if we cannot make some sense of this man’s honest descriptions of his traumatic, transcendent experiences, then we have no business trying to understand his spiritual ancestors in the historical record. We either put up here, or we shut up there. I decided to put up.”

Now to the Kantian cut. It is to distinguish between the appearances of things and what may actually lie behind them. In making that cut, we recognize that while our physical senses provide us with essential survival-oriented information, in no way do they even begin to convey to our consciousness awareness the totality of reality. As Kripal writes, this cut “is a very reasonable and appropriate response to our actual situation in the cosmos.” Furthermore, “Once one makes such a cut, one can, in principle, take any religious experience or mythical world seriously and sympathetically without adopting any particular interpretation of it, much as one suspends disbelief to enjoy a good novel or watch a science-fiction movie.”

In other words, we don’t need to accept nor reject Strieber’s reports of UFOs and “the visitors”— yes, we can keep the lids on our coconuts while adopting the stance of radical empiricism in considering large-scale quantum phenomena! 

Put yet another way: if we can simply look at such experiences as Strieber’s, sit with them, consider them “seriously and sympathetically, without adopting any particular interpretation”—we can then, to quote Kripal again, “begin to study their  patterns, histories, narrative structures, sexual dimensions, and philosophical implications.” The Kantian cut thus gives us the power to then spiral up to a broader, richer view. It is an astonishing power.

. . .

Many people know Strieber as “that guy who wrote about being abducted by extraterrestrials.” In fact, Strieber reports his perceptions of his experiences, but as to what they actually are, he says, “I am a wanderer, lost in a forest of hypotheses.” Strieber also echoes Kripal in arguing that, “it is not necessary to believe in such things as flying saucers, aliens, ghosts, and other unexplained phenomena in order to study them.”

But to study such things without puckerlips, and all brain cells firing, one must make that Kantian cut—and one needs courage to persist, for that Kantian cut must be made again and again in the face of our inclination towards easy polarities, to either believe or, more commonly, reject, bristling with hostility or scornful laughter. 

As Kripal puts it, one must “learn to live with paradox, to sit with the question.”

Book of the Week…

Edgar Cayce On Dreams
by Harmon H. Bro

“During the dreaming state of sleep, we experience the different levels of consciousness and receive input from the different realms of the spirit world. Through dreaming, we have special access to our spirit within. According to the Cayce readings, there is not a question we can ask which cannot be answered from the depths of our inner consciousness when the proper attunement is made.

A dream may be of a physical, mental, or spiritual nature and may deal with all manner of psychic manifestations. These include telepathy, clairvoyance, prophetic visions, out of body traveling, remembrance of past lives, communication with beings in other realms including deceased friends and relatives, spirit guides, angels, Christ, and even the voice of God. Dreams can also give invaluable information on the status of the body.

All subconscious minds are in contact with one another. Through the subconscious, dreams may place us in attunement with those in the physical realm or those in the spiritual realm. We may be visited in the night by discarnate entities for many reasons: they may seek to give us assurance about their well-being in other realms of existence; they may come seeking our aid through prayer; they may come to bring us information which may be very helpful or limited; or they may come to influence us with their own desires or perspectives, which may be helpful or harmful. For example, there are dream reports of deceased relatives appearing and giving instructions about where to find a will or a lost object.

The events we experience in the third-dimension are, as it were, a “past condition” because this dimension is simply a projection or a reflection of what is being built at another higher level. Therefore, when we tune into these higher levels, as we may in dreams, we become aware of what is being built, and what may be projected into the physical in the future. Nothing of importance happens to us that is not foreshadowed in our dreams. Which is not to say that all dreams are precognitive or that the exact detail of everything we experience is given earlier in dreams. However, the word “foreshadowed” suggests that we may glimpse and be warned of what we are building now which may come into manifestation later. We call these dreams “precognitive” or “prophetic.”

Just as the angels spoke to people in dreams in the times of the Bible, the spirit world still speaks to people to this day. Some people came to Cayce with dreams of Christ. None was told that it was simply his imagination, but all were assured they were indeed in touch with him.

There is no dimension of human life, whether social, financial, emotional or physical, mental or spiritual with which the dream may not on occasion deal. Dreams may encourage or reprimand, instruct or deceive, inspire or seduce, guide or confuse. The potential for an immense array of experiences in consciousness is always there. What we actually receive depends upon our attitudes, motivations, the measure of our attunement, and the extent to which we have made applicable what was received in earlier dreams and in waking experiences.

Anomaly Archives Seeking New Location

Since 2009, the archive and lending library of the 501c3 Scientific Anomaly Institute has shared a space in North West Austin with the like-minded INACS (Institute for Neuroscience And Consciousness Studies). However, due to a variety of issues, both organizations are now actively seeking potential new locations; either jointly or independently. The lease for the current location expires at the end of January 2018.

Both the Anomaly Archives and INACS will be moving to a new location and are actively seeking new office space. One of the desired features they have been using in their search criteria is a large conference area that their partner organizations could continue to use for meetings and presentations.

Here are some of the features both organizations are seeking:

  • Single story or first floor
  • 800-1200 SF
  • Separate building entrance
  • Large conference / presentation space
  • Bathroom(s) and kitchenette area
  • 2-3 offices
  • Relatively central location

If any members of our associated groups are aware of office space available for lease that might be suitable, please pass the suggestion on to Anomaly Archives founder, SMiles Lewis and to INACS‘ Administrative Committee (Bob Price, Miles Lewis, and Lois McGee).

October 2nd, 2017 – Austin, Texas. . .

This weekend I gave a presentation to the monthly Anomaly Archives public meeting group (The Third Door) about my 2016 Mystery Hum Experience” that I first publicly talked about with Mack White on our PsiOp-Radio show in April. I’ll have a video of this lecture to upload soon.

 – BOOK OF THE WEEK

In the 1990s, while I was publishing my ELFIS zine and participating in multiple monthly local MUFON and Abductee / Experiencer support group meetings, I met a young woman doing primary research for her anthropological ethnographic dissertation. Many wonderful heady conversations were had and I was proud to have had the chance to interact with her.

Well, this past year her dissertation was finally published as an actual physical book which I highly recommend to true seekers within the UFO community.

Lo and behold… she has been awarded a great honor for this publication:

     “The Gregory Bateson Book Prize is awarded by the Society for Cultural Anthropology, a section of the American Anthropological Association. Named after distinguished anthropologist, semiotician, cyberneticist, and photographer Gregory Bateson, the award reflects the SCA’s mandate to promote theoretically rich, ethnographically grounded research that engages the most current thinking across the arts and sciences. Welcoming a wide range of styles and argument, the Gregory Bateson Prize looks to single out work that is interdisciplinary, experimental, and innovative. In selecting the winners for this year’s prize, the jury, which consisted of Karen Strassler (Queens College, City University of New York; 2017 Bateson Prize Chair), Amira Mittermaier (University of Toronto), Lucas Bessire (University of Oklahoma), and Paul Eiss (Carnegie Mellon University), considered over one hundred books from more than thirty presses.”

Check out her book below…

I’ve recently digitized and uploaded 3 different promotional videos for the ill-fated 2001 38th annual National UFO Conference that unfortunately didn’t occur. We hope you enjoy this flashback to those heady pre-911 days.

Book of the Week…The Resonance of Unseen Things: 
Poetics, Power, Captivity, and UFOs in the American Uncannyby Susan Lepselter

Susan Lepselter Awarded the 2017 Bateson Prize

The Society for Cultural Anthropology (SCA) is proud to award the ninth annual Gregory Bateson Prize to Susan Lepselter for her book The Resonance of Unseen Things: Poetics, Power, Captivity, and UFOs in the American Uncanny (University of Michigan Press). In this exquisitely crafted ethnography, Susan Lepselter explores how the uncanny saturates the everyday among believers in UFOs in the American West. Rather than objects of elite disdain or sideshow curiosities, Lepselter’s interlocutors emerge as poets and theorists whose reflections on odd coincidences and eerie happenings offer a “strange mirror” on the experiences of late empire and late capitalism. Lepselter’s subjects rely on elaborate conspiracy theories and casual hunches to inhabit a landscape haunted by violent colonial conquest and the presence of a vast, “secret” military base. Deeply invested in an American mythology of freedom, they palpate the edges of the felt, the seen, and the known as they go about their daily lives convinced of the presence of pervasive but out-of-sight, alien powers—technology, the market, the state, the extraterrestrial.In writing that hews closely to the forms of her subjects’ language and thought, Lepselter evokes the affectively charged sediment of stories and memories whose persuasiveness rests not on logical coherence but on a set of potent resonances across seemingly disparate domains of experience and action. Enfolding her readers in a dense tissue of narrative fragments, she conjures a structure of feeling in which people experience a sense of confinement and a longing for release. Class, gender, race, and regional history indelibly inflect this structure of feeling. Yet in treating stories as mutating communal property that is continuously claimed and repurposed through creative acts of telling, Lepselter refuses to pin narratives reductively to singular subject positions or fixed social locations that would definitively author or explain them. Deeply informed by a wide range of thinkers from Jakobson to Freud and Foucault, Lepselter never merely applies theory but rather allows her ethnographic material to bend and rework it in unsettling ways. Both in form and in content, The Resonance of Unseen Things challenges ethnographic conventions, inviting us to examine our expectations of the genre and to explore modes of writing intimately attuned to the subjects we engage. Thanks to the support of libraries participating in the Knowledge Unlatched initiative, an open-access digital edition of the book is also freely available to read. Exemplifying ethnography’s potential to illuminate the political through immersion in the mundane and the apparently marginal, The Resonance of Unseen Things casts a startlingly penetrating light on our current moment.

September 18th, 2017 – Austin, Texas. . .

Another anniversary of 911 has come and gone. For better or worse, conspiracy culture has become ever more mainstream in America. Austin, Texas continues to be part of the epicenter of that growth because of folks like Alex Jones and others who grew out of Austin’s Community Access TV network, ACTVWell the subjects of both paranormal and parapolitical aspects of the tragic events of September 11th, 2001 inform our selections of both Video-Of-The-Week and Book-Of-The-Week for this issue…

 – VIDEO OF THE WEEK

Back in 2015 I presented an informal lecture discussion featuring various videos related to esoteric aspects of September 11th. Among the videos I presented was a video montage I threw together as accompaniment to my 2005 audio narration of my 2002 Austin Para Times editorial. Well, I finally uploaded that video and have included it here as this issue’s Video Of The Week.

I should of course add that … “The opinions expressed in this editorial do not necessarily reflect those of the Anomaly Archives or its board of directors.”

 – BOOK OF THE WEEK

This book was one of, if not THE, first 911 conspiracy books published in the wake of September 11th, 2001. We are proud to have interviewed its author on our Blue Rose Report web radio show.

SMiles Lewis’ September 11th Editorial circa 2002
Austin-Para-Times editorial about September-11th-2001
(911) circa 2002
 by SMiles Lewis

In 2005 I turned the editorial into the first episode of my 911-Podcast. Several years later that audio podcast was aired by a friend on 91.7-fm KOOP radio.In 2015 I created this video montage using that same audio in preparation for a brief informal presentation titled: “SynchroMystic-911: Deep ParaPolitics & Esoteric-Occult High-Strangeness Surrounding September 11th”

The first part of the audio deals with the very real and provable Covert Ops, Deep State, Parapolitical elements of the 911 events. The second part deals with the precognitive parapsychological psychic ripple effects that were psensed before and during the events of that fateful day.

The Shadow Government: 9-11 and State Terror

by Len Bracken

“One of the more persuasive strategists, at least on this side of the Atlantic, is Len Bracken. By day, he’s a humble copy editor in Washington; by night, a novelist, biographer, amateur historian, translator, and underground essayist treasured in conspiracy circles, a man who never shows his face to his readers. The problem with conspiracy theories is that most of them are wrong. Still, if the turbulent, age-old story of statesmen conspiring to use terrorism to control their own populations can be believed, as Bracken successfully argues, then Shadow’s thesis raises more chilling questions than it answers. Why should 9-11 be anomalous? As Twain once remarked, history never repeats itself—but it does rhyme.”

  – Geoffrey Gray, Village Voice

 

Podcast of the 20th episode of The Blue Rose Report with guest Len Bracken. Len is the author of such nonfiction works as Shadow Government 911 and State Terror, The Arch Conspirator, and Guy Debord, Revolutionary, as well as fictional works Snitch JacketThe East is Black, and Freeplay.
