The Anomaly Archives Weekly Email Newsletter

February 2nd, 2016 – Welcome back to our new weekly email newsletter from the Anomaly Archives / Scientific Anomalies Institute in Austin, Texas. We’re highlighting recent anomalous news, upcoming events, as well as books, magazines, and researchers of note.

Book of the Week: The Manna-Machine

manna-machine-coverThis book from 1978 is one of many in our collection of Ancient Astronaut Theory books. The whimsical cover features an artist’s recreation of the alleged “device” given to the Israelites (by God?) and which allegedly sustained them during their forty year journey in the Sinai Desert.

“Featured in Season One of Ancient Aliens … Sassoon and Dale’s theory posits that a machine drew in moisture from the air and through some technological means was powered by a nuclear reactor (aka the Ark of the Covenant, a topic for another day). The machine then allegedly created some sort of algae-based food.” – AncientAliensDebunked.com

Scientists discover that our brain waves can be sent by electrical fields

 “…it appears the brain may be using the fields to communicate without synaptic transmissions, gap junctions or diffusion.” …According to the researchers, this is evidence that the propagation mechanism for the activity is consistent with the electrical field.

“The results indicate that electric fields (ephaptic effects) are capable of mediating propagation of self-regenerating neural waves,” they write. …

If their findings, which are reported in The Journal of Neuroscience, can be expounded in further studies, it could help us to better understand how brain waves are associated with things like memory, epilepsy, and healthy physiology.

NASA’s New VASIMR Plasma Engine Could Reach Mars in 39 days  By: David Russell Schilling | January 3rd, 2016

NASA recently provided $10 million in funding to Ad Astra Rocket Company of Texas for further development of its Variable Specific Impulse Magnetoplasma Rocket (VASIMR), an electromagnetic thruster capable of propelling a spaceship to Mars in just 39 days. NASA’s funding was part of the “12 Next Space Technologies for Exploration Partnership.” Ad Astra’s rocket will travel ten times faster than today’s chemical rockets while using one-tenth the amount of fuel.

 

The VASIMR system would cut the trip to Mars by months according to Franklin Chang Diaz, a former MIT student, NASA astronaut, and now CEO of Ad Astra.  …

VASIMR-System

 

VASIMR heats plasma, an electrically charged gas, to extremely high temperatures using radio waves. The system then provides thrust by funneling the hot plasma out of the back of the engine. According to Diaz, VASIMR will save thousands of gallons of rocket fuel and tens of millions of dollars a year.

 

In the following video, Diaz explains in great detail the origins of space travel and why the magnetoplasma rocket technology will revolutionize space travel and exploration.

January 27th, 2016 – Welcome back to our new weekly email newsletter from the Anomaly Archives / Scientific Anomalies Institute in Austin, Texas. We’re highlighting recent anomalous news, upcoming events, as well as books, magazines, and researchers of note.

For this week, here are a few of the headlines that caught our attention:

Recent Monthly Meeting: Remote Viewing 911

This past weekend we had a great turnout of attendees at our monthly public meeting that featured Todd Ronan presenting about his use of Remote Viewing techniques to investigate multiple targets which turned out to be related to the tragic events of September 11th, 2001. The results of his remote viewing sessions led him from being a skeptic of alternative 911 conspiracy theories to a believer in various possible scenarios that go far beyond the conspiracy espoused by the United States government and mainstream, establishment media. Whatever your views on these controversial topics, his presentation provided some very interesting alternatives interpretations.

Monthly Public Meetings

Monthly discussion on the latest news and research into the fields of inquiry covered within our anomalous collections including: UFOs and Ufology, Consciousness, Parapsychology, Fortean and Paranormal Phenomena, Cryptozoology, Parapolitics and Conspiracy, Human Potential … and MORE!

The Anomaly Archives holds monthly meetings (usually) on the Fourth Saturday of each month. Contact SMiles Lewis or Mark Muecke via email for updates. The meetings are FREE (Donations Welcomed!) and held from 1-3pm at the INACS / Anomaly Archives headquarters located in North West Austin. (Map)

‘Two suns’ spotted in China defy explanation

VN:R_U [1.9.22_1171]
Rating: 0.0/10 (0 votes cast)

Weeks after a story shot across the Web claiming that the imminent explosion of a nearby star would result in the appearance of a second sun in the sky — a story that was later debunked — two suns were caught on camera yesterday in China. The suns — one fuzzy and orange, the other a crisp yellow orb — appeared side-by-side, one slightly higher than the other.

What’s going on? Life’s Little Mysteries, a sister site to Space.com, asked Jim Kaler, the University of Illinois astronomer who squelched the excitement over the aforementioned exploding Betelgeuse and who has written books on the day and night sky. The double sun image is an effect of optical refraction, Kaler said, but it’s a “pretty darn rare” one, and one not fully explained by science.

“I doubt it’s been computer modeled,” he said. “There must have been some blob of atmosphere somewhere that caused this truly spectacular phenomenon, which in a sense is a mirage.”  [Amazing Sun Photos From Space]

He goes on to state that the double or multiple image phenomena are produced by abnormal refraction, but that “it remains extraordinary that the images of the sun and moon were sharp and of the same size as the real sun and moon.”

“This is not a common optical phenomenon that we’re seeing here,” said Grant Perry, an atmospheric scientist at the University of Wisconsin Cooperative Institute for Satellite and Meteorological Studies. “I’m asking myself if this is an artifact of the lens, but if that were the case — if it’s reflections of the lens elements — then the images would move in relation to each other as the camera moves,” Perry said. “But that doesn’t happen.”

In terms of an optical explanation, he said, “You would have to assume it is particles of ice or something in the atmosphere aligned in such a way that they would refract the sunlight at that very small angle, but only in one direction. It would require some fairly peculiar characteristics.”

Several related atmospheric optical effects are fully explained by science. Sun dogs, sunset mirages, sun pillars and sun halos are all relatively common and well understood. But not this effect.

“It’s very intriguing,” said Kaler.

First ever footage of spontaneous human combustion?

VN:R_U [1.9.22_1171]
Rating: 0.0/10 (0 votes cast)

A strange video has captured the moment a man lay peacefully in a doorway engulfed in roaring flames – in what could be genuine footage of human combustion.

The man was pictured lying “peacefully” in the doorway of a building with a bicycle parked nearby – and with fire emanating from his stomach and chest area.

The strange incident – which apparently ended without serious injury to the victim – happened on the streets of Serbia’s second largest city Novi Sad.

A man can be heard approaching him – perhaps the taker of the video – saying: “Hello, hello, what’s happening?”

But the human torch waves him away as if lying covered in flames is the most natural thing in the world.

The video was first posted on a Facebook page called ‘Live from the streets of Novi Sad’.

According to the information, they received this video at the end of November last year.

In one comment on the video, it says that the man is “known” on the streets of Novi Sad for “problematic behaviour”.

Remote Viewing 9/11 with Todd Ronan

Saturday, January 23rd, 2016 / 1-3:30pm CST.

12593 Research Blvd Ste 302, Austin, TX (map)

Please RSVP via the Austin Astral Projection Meetup group listing.

The 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, D.C. were arguably one of the most disturbing events to happen so far this century. There are many unexplained anomalies associated with these attacks. The number and nature of the anomalies have led a significant and growing number of people to question the official explanation of these events as simply the result of a small band of terrorists.

This investigation takes a fresh look at these events using remote-viewing methods that were originally developed by the U.S. military and used for espionage purposes.todd-ronan

As part of the Farsight 911 Project, local Remote Viewer Todd Ronan contributed 6 RV sessions and will summarize those sessions in an effort to help decode the events of September 11th, 2001.

No understanding of how RV works is necessary.

The search for ‘Bigfoot’ comes to East Texas

VN:R_U [1.9.22_1171]
Rating: 5.0/10 (1 vote cast)

It’s too bad that this CBS19 “news report” didn’t note the terrible record of Tom Biscardi as a hoaxer and con-man:

The search for ‘Bigfoot’ comes to East Texas
Posted: Jan 08, 2016 10:47 PM CST
Updated: Jan 08, 2016 10:47 PM CST
By Gerardo Martinez

CHEROKEE COUNTY (KYTX) – It has many different names. Some call it Bigfoot, Sasquatch, even Yeti.

The creature’s existence has never been scientifically established. But still, the sightings of a big hairy creature continue. And that’s what keeps a group of ‘Bigfoot experts’ still searching for it.

Recently captured images taken at a hunting site in Cherokee County brought the Bigfoot experts to East Texas.

Known by many as the ‘Godfather of Bigfoot,’ Tom Biscardi has been on the hunt for the creature for more than 45 years.

“I know that one day or another, someone’s going to come across one and bring it to the front and prove it to the scientific world that it’s here,” he said.

Tom and his group of self- proclaimed ‘Bigfoot experts’ were recently brought to east Texas after a land owner captured some images he can’t explain.

The images were captured by a thermal camera by a deer feeder in December. Tom says, with no doubt in his mind, what was captured in the images was a 7-foot Bigfoot.

So with the help of his crew, including his own son T.J., Tom set up several cameras and ‘Bigfoot bait’ to try to capture the creature on camera – or in person.

Tom and T.J. say they’ve managed to get some Bigfoot imprints over the past several years and even some hair samples, but capturing definite proof of the beast has been tricky.

Either way, they say they’ll continue searching for Bigfoot as long as it takes.

“This is what we do full time,” said T.J. “It’s a job. It’s wonderful.”

When we tagged along with the group, we didn’t capture any definite proof either, but what we did capture was this. When T.J. made a ‘Bigfoot call,’ we heard something howl back.

The crew says they will stay out in the area Friday night to find more evidence of Bigfoot.
