 – ANOMALY NEWS HEADLINES

So here’s another installment of the “weekly” newsletter. Tons of news links worth exploring to satisfy your cravings for weird articles and information.

Some of the many news items on my radar that I think you should definitely take a look at include…

World Congress on Mummy Studies “Declaration Of The Scientific Community Regarding The Fraud Of Extraterrestrial Mummies,” Paul Seaburn’s reportage on same over at Mysterious Universe, plus The Atlantic‘s article The Racism Behind Alien Mummy Hoaxes.

UFOs: Reframing the Roswell Slides Fiasco

Mufon & Ufology’s Continuing Death Spiral … starting with the mass resignation of MUFON membership over the organization’s response to a former State Director’s online racist rant, and the resignation of more State Directors (Washington State’s James Clarkson) as well as the organization’s Director of Research over the lack of scientific rigor on display at this year’s annual symposium which focused on unverifiable testimony presented at the “Secret Space Program” MUFON conference.

There have been a few noteworthy folks who’ve recently passed away:

There are a ton of links dealing with the early release of the thousands of documents related to the assassination of JFK – with more scheduled for probable release in October:

Also, here are some choice audio / video podcasts that we highly recommend from the news links section:

 – BOOK OF THE WEEK

This week’s “Book of the Week” is another UFO anthology; this one is from the early 1990s and has a concluding essay which (much to my surprise) also delves into the relevance of Virtual Reality as a helpful metaphor for the UFO contact phenomenon like my own essay in the Reframing the Debate anthology.

UFOs The Final Answer?
Ufology for the 21st Century

Edited by David Barclay & Therese Marie Barclay
Featuring: Arthur Tomlinson, K.W.C. Phillips, Robert Moore, Roger Ford, Joseph Dormer, Charlotte A. O’Connor and David & Therese Marie Barclay

From EHE.org – The Exceptional Human Experience website… 

“Anthology on aspects of UFOs with the emphasis on hypotheses. The editors review a number of views on UFOs in the first chapter. Arthur Tomlinson surveys historical sightings of UFOs in ancient Egypt, Biblical, and classical times through the 19th century. K.W.C. Phillips deals with “the psychosociology of UFOlogy,” emphasizing that what we are actually studying are reports (texts), not first-hand data. He emphasizes the religious, historic, and folkloric dimensions of UFOs and notes the presence of a strong psi factor. Robert Moore, in “Science v. Saucery,” tries to provide a traditionally scientific exploration of UFOs. His chapter is a good survey of the “normal” counterhypotheses, both objective and subjective, which could explain 85% of all sightings. For the rest, he sets forth the “Mundane-Synthesistic Hypothesis,” in which synthesistic is “defined as many separate factors cumulating into a single result” (p. 92). Roger Ford describes what appear to be cases of the government spreading “deliberate disinformation” (p. 106) about seeming UFOs. Therese M. Barclay describes some of the best sightings she and others have investigated and concludes that UFOs are real but do not make sense within our accepted worldview: “It might be that they are real in a way our present-day cosmologies can’t conceive” (p. 113). Joseph Dormer argues that “the origins of UFOs, and their alien occupants, probably lies within us” (p. 152). Charlotte A. O’Connor sets forth a “racial dream hypothesis” to explain UFOs, especially UFO abductions. In the concluding chapter, David Barclay points out that “ufology as it presently stands [is] a loosely interconnected series of belief systems from which anyone can choose on the basis of personal preference alone” (p. 172). He also feels that skepticism is the least defensible choice and the most counterproductive. He proposes a holographic virtual reality model as the source of UFOs. Taken together, the viewpoints expressed offer an up-to-date survey of UFO explanations and counterhypotheses that is both quite comprehensive, and in some instances, presented in some depth.”

70th Anniversary Celebrating the Crash of the “Roswell-WhatsIt”

Last week marked the 70th anniversaries of Kenneth Arnold’s famous sighting and the crash of a mysterious ‘whatsit’ outside Roswell, New Mexico. I traveled to Roswell and spent 5 days and nights enjoying the local hospitality and seeing UFO-related lectures across town at 4 different venues. I saw old friends and made new ones. I took lots of pictures and hope to share more of my adventures in the near future. Until then …

70th Anniversary of the Birth of the Modern UFO Era

Audio interview of Kenneth Arnold (YouTube)

This week marks the 70th anniversaries of the two most seminal events in the birthing of the modern UFO era’s major myths: Kenneth Arnold’s sighting of a shimmering squadron of delta shaped objects over Mount Rainier, Washington and the crash of a mysterious ‘whatsit’ outside Roswell, New Mexico with alleged alien bodies recovered by the military. Both events occurred in the Summer of 1947, with the Arnold sighting cited as kicking off the American Flying Saucer craze and the Roswell newsflash only coming to prominence with the publication of The Roswell Incident (by Charles Berlitz and William Moore) in 1980.

I grew up believing in the classic myth of Roswell representing crashed saucers and pickled aliens scooped up and covered up by the US government but have since come to lean heavily towards the research documented by Nick Redfern in his two books: Body Snatchers in the Desert in 2005 and its recent follow-up, The Roswell UFO Conspiracy (May 2017). Both books detail a probable American project melding nefarious human experimentation with advanced avionics / nuclear radiation research. A sort of Project Paperclip (American importation of German Nazi scientists) meets Unit-731 (the Japanese version of Germany’s Dr. Mengele horrors) combining Fugo-balloons, unwitting human subjects (both Japanese and American), and Nazi Horten-brother flying-wing technologies. It’s a lot to take-in and no one wants to believe it but given the facts that we already know regarding each area of research (not to mention the CIA’s MK-Ultra sub-projects) it becomes all too plausible. Well, Nick Redfern is among the illustrious list of speakers presenting at one of two different UFO conferences being held in Roswell this year.

“Challenges to ET” conference organizer Guy Malone.

Albuquerque Journal coverage of upcoming conferences.

Given the sad state of UFOlogy this year (see our previous issue and this issue’s news headlines) it will be interesting to see what new information is presented at the two conferences being held. I will be attending the “Challenges to ET” conference hosted by Guy Malone that features Nick Redfern, Jack Brewer, Greg Bishop, Michael Heiser, and Joseph Jordan. I’ll also likely catch a speech or two at the Roswell Incident conference that is presented by the Roswell Daily Record newspaper which is set to feature presentations from Richard Dolan, Linda Howe, Nick Pope, Chase Kloetzke, Chuck Zukowski, Debbie Ziegelmeyer, Race Hobbs, David Marler, Marc D’Antonio, Alejandro Rojas, Courtney Brown, and Josh Gates.

So, if you are going to be in Roswell from June 29th to July 2nd, drop me a line at SMiles@AnomalyArchives.org and maybe we can have some interesting conversations-over-saucers!

Meanwhile…

Stop UFOlogical Cultural Appropriation &
Exploitation of Ancient Human Remains!

Gaia TV Covers the “Mystery” (Facebook Video)

You have undoubtedly come across news items alleging the discovery of a new mysterious body from Peru being touted as a mummified, possibly alien, body. Blogger and researcher Curt Collins (Blue Blurry Lineswrites:

“The remains of the dead should not be used as props for UFO promoters and entertainers like Maussan and Gaia. We’ve had the Star Child, Greer’s Sirius “Atacama Humanoid,” and when challenged about the BeWitness Slides, Maussan offered a bounty for the child’s body itself.
Forensic Anthropologists should be in charge of this kind of thing. Once the science is done, if there’s anything valid, share it with the world.
Until then, let the dead rest in peace. Don’t support the exploitation.”

I couldn’t agree more with Mr. Collins on this issue. You’d think folks would have learned by now, especially after the Roswell “Alien” Slides debacle promoted by Jaime Maussan and others fell apart in May of 2015. Yet the human will to believe continues, with many UFOlks looking for the next Smoking-Gun / Holy-Grail to prove their beliefs in ExtraTerrestrial visitation. For a more probable, down-to-earth explanation, see this Peruvian website’s investigation of this and other likely “manipulated artifacts.” (Hat tip to Sharon Hill of Doubtful News)

Blur – Thought I Was A Spaceman
La Musicale 2015

[Verse 1]
Thought I was a spaceman
Digging out my heart
In some distant sand dunes
In a car park

Cause the desert had encroached upon
The places where we lived
People like me fight
To keep the demons in

But we never succeeded
We never succeeded
In fact we failed

[Verse 2]
Thought I was a spaceman
Digging out my heart
In some distant sand dune
In a car park

By the empty harbour
Where the junk boat phantoms float
The fight for happy valley
Sadly, the line broke

[Verse 3]
Thought I found my black box
Washed up on the shore
On outlying islands
Past the land fall

Thought I thought I’d found it
But that was not true at all
I’d walked into a bar
Raised hell

[Verse 4]
Cut the chasm out me
Always and always the same
Put the ghost in writing
And let it be (you again)

Thought I was a spaceman
Digging out my heart
In some distant sand dune
In Hyde Park

[Verse 5]
Thought I was a spaceman
Digging out my heart
In some distant sand dune
You again

Thought I was a spaceman
Digging out my heart
In some distant sand dune
You again

You again
You again

The Close Encounters Man
How One Man Made the World Believe in UFOs

by Mark O’Connell

‘The Close Encounters Man’ tells the unlikely story of how the government’s astrophysicist debunker became the phenomenon’s most expert defender.

“If you’re jonesing for an extraterrestrial, you should check out The Close Encounters Man by Mark O’Connell. O’Connell, a writer for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and founder of the UFO blog High Strangeness, set out to write “a UFO book people wouldn’t need to hide from other people.” He found his ideal subject in J. Allen Hynek, the astronomer hired by the United States Air Force in 1948 to debunk the reports of strange objects in the sky flooding in from across the country. Eventually Hynek broke with his handlers and became the first scientist to lend credence to the UFO phenomenon. The author of 1972’s The UFO Experience: A Scientific Study, he would go on to found the Center for UFO Studies in 1973, present a speech on flying saucers to the United Nations in 1978, and develop the “close encounter” scale that would inspire Steven Spielberg’s popular Close Encounters of the Third Kind (“a huge boon to his work,” O’Connell told me. “They shot a scene where the little aliens grab Hynek’s pipe from him and stick it up their noses, but it was cut down to a six-second cameo.”)

In telling the life story of Hynek, the “astro-beatnik,” O’Connell winds up with a stunning panorama of the UFO movement—from fringe conspiracy theorists to amateur astronomers to agnostic scientists—as well as its colossal impact on pop culture and modern science. I recently spoke with O’Connell over the phone about Hynek’s unique story of skeptic turned believer, the scientific study of the inexplicable, and what makes a good UFO witness.”

Read the rest of this interview with author and UFO researcher Mark O’Connell at the Source: The Professional UFO Skeptic Who Believed in Aliens – VICE by J. W. McCormack – May 30 2017

 

On the MUFON / John Ventre Scandal …

“Mark O’Connell, formerly an active MUFON investigator but also an open-minded critic of the organization has severed his ties with them over this series of incidents: UFO Fever.”

 

On Roswell & his debate with Don Schmitt …

Beating a Dead UFO – HighStrangenessUFO.com

“So, the other day I did a webcast with noted UFO authority and all-around nice guy Kevin Randle (you can listen to it here), in which we discussed the Roswell Debate I had recently with Don Schmitt. The debate, for those of you new to the story, took place at the Milwaukee Paranormal Conference earlier this fall. It was sponsored by well-known UFO and paranormal media outlet KGRA Radio, but after webcasting the debate live, KGRA has decided for reasons known only to them to reneg on their promise to post the debate on their website.”

Just Released… UFOs: Reframing the Debate – Edited by Robbie Graham

Not the book of the week as it’s already held that spot before and we hope it will act as a long-term catalyzer for deep thought on the subject, but…

The new anthology with contributions from myself and more than a dozen other UFO writers is now available to the public: Amazon-Smile Program.

[Buy books through Amazon’s SMILE Program and Support the Anomaly Archives]

Robbie and Greg just appeared on Coast to Coast AM with host George Knapp and had a long discussion about the state of UFO research in the context of the just released anthology. Greg and Robbie also discuss the book and the need for new thinking on UFOs on Greg’s wedradio show. You can listen to that book-talk show at Greg’s Radio Misterioso website (MP3 podcast archive).

Greg also recently interviewed UFOs: Reframing the Debate contributor, MJ Banias and did a panel discussion show about the new alien film, “Arrival” (with lots of spoilers) featuring Debate contributors, MJ BaniasJoshua CutchinRed Pill Junkie, and Ryan SpragueIs “Arrival” The Perfect Alien Movie?

Some other news-of-note includes…

DramaRama in the UFO-Scene: MUFON State Director, John Ventre, demoted after public and membership outcry over his racially charged social media rant. Following a wave of complaints to MUFON about his personal public behavior the organization’s Executive Director issued a public statement: MUFON reaction to recent social media postings.

The statement caused another wave of criticism starting, as one would expect, within the comments section of the public response posting. Several comments were deleted before ALL of the replies were deleted and the comments section was closed.

Among the noteworthy responses to this situation:

​Nick Redfern announced his withdrawal from all things to do with MUFON.

“Some of you may have seen all the controversy surrounding MUFON this past week or thereabouts. As a result of all this outrageous crap, I have told MUFON that I will no longer be writing my monthly column for their magazine, and I have severed ties with them. Period.”  – Nick Redfern

James E Clarkson, MUFON Washington State Section Director issued his own public statement condemning Ventre’s rant and expressing solidarity with respect and non-discrimination.

North Carolina MUFON co-founder William Senter also expressed disapproval for the organization’s response to the situation and appears to be leaving the organization until a more appropriate response occurs.

Mark O’Connell, formerly an active MUFON investigator but also an open-minded critic of the organization has severed his ties with them over this series of incidents: UFO Fever.

Race Hobbs, Program Director of the KGRA Digital Broadcasting Station said, “after 10 years of service to the organization of MUFON, I have tendered my resignation… ​MUFON UFO Radio has been removed from the KGRA Roster.”

MUFON’s Director of Experiencer Research, Kathleen Marden, has expressed her position and is taking a stand against intolerance and contemplating her next move with regard to the organization. You can read her statements and the follow-up in Mike Clelland’s post: Public relations nightmare at MUFON with Statement from Kathleen Marden.

Mr. Ventre has been removed from several upcoming speaking engagements, had his community access television show cancelled, and been demoted from State Section Director to state treasurer and event coordinator. Ventre remains listed among MUFON’s “Inner Circle” for, “donating in excess of $5,000 in a single donation.”

 – MEANWHILE: “It is happening, again.”

25 years after America was exposed to the Twin Peaksian Universe…

David Lynch’s surreal Twin Peaks tv series is back with a vengeance, causing much discussion about this over-the-top oddball story that features Secret Societies, Mysterious Entities Feeding Off Humanity’s Pain & Sorrow, Drug Smuggling, Human Trafficking & Sexploitation, Strange Premonitions & Visions, Uncanny Owls, UFOs & Blue Book and the Precursor to the X-Files… FBI Regional Bureau Chief Gordon Cole’s “Blue Rose Cases.”

Back in 2007 and 2008 I wrote a couple of articles about these aspects as an entre for those interested in delving more deeply into the shadowy underbelly of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks / Fire Walk With Me surrealities:

 – MONTHLY MEETINGS RESUME 

First Meeting of “The Third Door” Saturday, April 29th, 2017

A new series of monthly Anomaly Archives open discussion forum meetings called, “The Third Door” led by Anomaly Archives member John Hawkins will be meeting on the last Saturday of each month from 1-4pm.

Contact John Hawkins for details.

It looks like John’s first meeting (April 29th) will focus on the topic of Cryptoterrestrials!

 – ANOMALY NEWS HEADLINES

Anomalists, Forteans, Guerilla-Ontologists, Intermediatists, Paranormalists, SynchroMystics & Twilight Language Theorists

The esoteric sub-genre called SynchroMysticism (coined by Jay Kotze in 2006) is still a relatively unknown arena related to attempts to interpret “Twilight Language.”

Twilight Language… “explores hidden meanings and synchromystic connections via onomatology (study of names) and toponymy (study of place names). This blog further investigates “name games” and “number coincidences” found in news and history.”).”

I’m honored to yet again be listed by Loren Coleman as being among the top Twilight Language Theorists. Among those listed within this year’s top 25 are deceased blogger and radical CyberPunk-Fortean & UFO-thinker, Mac Tonnies; author of The CryptoTerrestrials.

Greg Bishop’s Epic Adventures

I’ve known author and researcher Greg Bishop since the early to mid 1990s when we met through the alt media zine scene. We’ve featured his latest UFO book, It Defies Language, as Book-of-the-Week this time last year. Well he continues to amaze and inspire me with his dedication to anomalous subjects and this past month has been particularly noteworthy…

Greg recently hosted ParaMania 2017 (Flashback to 2016 Premier) in Los Angeles, giving guests a tour of some of SoCal’s weirdest sights and experiences. The final night Greg and guests did a special informal freewheeling “after-party” round-table discussion live on his Radio Misterioso show. The relaxed and intriguing conversations were made even more interesting by one of ParaMania’s founding members “calling-in” from 30,000 feet! This ParaMania attendee was flying home that night but managed to use the airline’s inflight wifi to stream the show AND skype-call live into the program! You can listen to that epic show at Greg’s Radio Misterioso website (MP3 podcast archive).

Greg also recently interviewed UFOs: Reframing the Debate contributor, MJ Banias. You should also check out Banias’ recent articles on his TerraObscura website on UFOs, Power Systems, and Modern Capitalism, plus Banias’ after interview article, “Involuntary Shapeshifters: The Collective Unconscious and Engaging A Non-Human Intelligence” where he reflects on that recent conversation with Greg Bishop on Radio Misterioso (MP3).

Another milestone from Greg’s audio archives relates to a special global holiday celebrated this past weekend … the Original Earth Day was MC’d by someone who would later be convicted of a grisly murder; Ira Einhorn. Radio Misterioso host Greg Bishop conducted the last public interview (June 24th, 2001) with Einhorn before his extradition from France to Philadelphia for the retrial of his conviction for the 1977 murder of Holly Maddux.

Media Explodes with Coverage of Alex Jones’ Child Custody Case!

Keeping up with (the wildest sides) of the Joneses … Alex Jones and Tales of a Precognitive Visions, Bill Hicks Switch, Performance Persona, Stratfor Strategems and More!

For many years now I’ve watched the rise of alt-media celebrity and POTUS-45 confidante, Alex Jones, from his early days at ACTV (Austin Community Access TeleVision) and on KJFK (98.9FM) through the run up to Y2K and on to his meteoric rise to international celebrity post-911. Now Alex finds himself in a fight to retain custody of his three children (while he has another child on the way with his new wife) and the media are twisting the legal maneuvering of Alex’s lawyers attempts at separating his on-camera demeanor from his home-life personality by relating his InfoWars persona to that of a “Performance Artist,” with the media running with the misinformation that this is a declaration of his not actually believing what he publicly says on his shows and documentaries. While the mainstream media focus on this idea they are predicting he’ll lose masses of listeners / followers, but anyone who has watched him for any length of time knows he has always indulged in sketch-comedy and satire to convey his ideas; see this recent YouTube video collection of some of his most outrageous satirical comedy skits … if you can stand to watch him.  😉

 – BOOK OF THE WEEK

Coming in May 2017 is a brand new anthology of critical thinking about the state of UFO research. I am proud to have been asked to contribute to this collection of essays from fourteen amazing researchers. The book is called UFOs: Reframing the Debate and features a diverse array of independent thinkers on all things ufological. The brainchild of editor Robbie Graham (Silver Screen Saucers: Sorting Fact from Fantasy in Hollywood’s UFO Movies), it arose out of the disillusionment he’s felt with popular approaches to the phenomenon (YouTube link). I’m very excited to see this book released as I am optimistic that it might actually help move UFO research forward.

UFOs: Reframing the Debate
Edited by Robbie Graham

IF YOU LIKE YOUR UFO LITERATURE TO CONFIRM WHAT YOU ALREADY ‘KNOW,’ THIS IS NOT THE BOOK FOR YOU!

The UFO field has produced thousands of dedicated researchers over the years, and reams of literature; but to what end? What can we claim to know conclusively today about the underlying nature of UFO phenomena that we didn’t know in the late-1940s? UFO study has always suffered from major organizational and methodological problems. It has also become dangerously self-referential.

If ever we are to further our understanding of the UFO enigma, we must fundamentally reframe our debate. We must wipe the board clean and fill it with new ideas, new theories, even new language. We must be willing to start from scratch when the field stagnates. We must be critical, sober, and free of dogma—ready to rinse away the residue of our own beliefs.

UFOs: Reframing the Debate is a collection of original essays exploring alternative perspectives on UFOs and how we might more usefully study the phenomenon in the 21st Century. The book brings together some of the most progressive and iconoclastic thinkers in the field for an incisive deconstruction of current popular ideas. Critical but constructive, this challenging volume represents a range of differing (even conflicting) alternative viewpoints on UFOs and related phenomena.

UFOs: Reframing the Debate is a cold, hard, slap in the face for ‘UFOlogy,’ a call to break away from established ideas, approaches, and practices, and to boldly tread a new path in quest of understanding what may very well be the greatest mystery of all.

anomalyarchivesThe Anomaly Archives Weekly Email Newsletter

January 2017 – Austin, Texas

Happy New Year!

Welcome to the first newsletter issue for 2017. There are a ton of amazing news links below and even more at the Anomaly Archives’ Flipboard page.

Among the many important links are news items related to the Deep State / ParaPolitical / Conspiracy fallout of the American Presidential election and related claims of state-sponsored espionage, election disruption, and cries of a “Fake News” epidemic threatening to upend the American political process and possibly portending increasingly strict online media controls. Given the American Intelligence community’s history of covert perception management and overt propaganda and mainstream media complicity it can be difficult to navigate the treacherous waters amid so much perception management and psychological warfare – see for instance The Mighty Wurlitzer: How the CIA Played America by Hugh Wilford (Reviewed by Michael Warner at CIA.gov [PDF]), The CIA And The Media: How America’s Most Powerful News Media Worked Hand in Glove with the Central Intelligence Agency and Why the Church Committee Covered It Up by Carl Bernstein, and this excerpt from Spooked: How the CIA Manipulates the Media and Hoodwinks Hollywood by Nicholas Schou.

Recent articles about “Weaponized Narrative” and government efforts to “Militarize Social Media to Influence Your Beliefs” fit right in with perspectives I’ve been exploring in a recent writing project dealing with “Weapons of Mass Enchantment” and “Covert Folklore Warfare.”

So much of what is characterized as “Fake News” often has roots in reality despite the folkloric / mythic embellishments and deliberately manipulated misinformation efforts of those utilizing such perception management strategems for socio-cultural control campaigns waged across news networks and social media communities.

Also in this installment of the Anomaly Headline News section we have links to articles about “Archives, Anonymity & Animosity Online” … there’s good news and bad news within the Archival and Ufological worlds. Some amazing strides are being made by online UFO researchers and preservationists; some by anonymous individuals. Unfortunately, the vitriolic nature of much internet enabled “discourse” has caused a number of recent flame war flaps that ultimately leave both believers and skeptics reeling.

Just as anonymous hackers and leakers of insider information have played a leading role in recent electoral drama flashpoints, similarly, issues surrounding anonymity in the UFO research community created a firestorm of flame wars online when Ted Roe (of NARCAP & IAUAPR) and others criticized the citing of research by anonymous researchers; specifically Isaac Koi. You can read Isaac‘s (PDF), Curt Collins‘ and other accounts of the occurrence at the links provided.

Isaac Koi is the pseudonymous UFO researcher who is legendary for the legal (ie – permissions-based) liberation of numerous volumes of print UFO research materials through their digitization and public internet-based dissemination of the resulting scanned archives. He began this independently but had increasingly partnered with the Archives For the Unexplained (AFU) in Sweden:

Isaac Koi, of AFU’s International Advisory Board, is making an herculean effort to trace down editors and publishers of journals and newsletters to ask them for the rights to scan the contents of old volumes and to make them available as PDFs. AFU has established a work group to continuously work with Isaac in this effort.”

– AFU: Magazine digitization project & new catalogue

Sadly, it seems humanity hasn’t quite yet mastered how to successfully navigate the benefits and hazards of social-media-tech-enabled community. The incident of Isaac’s self-enforced retirement is a particularly frustrating example of the victimization that occurs on all sides when our social-media-masks are donned, often resulting in the release of the worst animosity pouring out of us through the keyboard-enabled persona of our internet masks. Isaac was not a part of that stye of communication but such childish and demoralizing “communication” has dogged participants on both sides of the “debates” and has swirled around many of the most recent flash-in-the-pan cases from the Roswell Slides saga to the Aguadilla, Puerto Rico Coast Guard infrared video case and even the most recent military infrared video case involving the Chilean Navy. Skeptics and believers on all sides of these and other cases report the deplorable nature of the too often heated social-media-enabled commentary: some of those commenting on such allegedly disrespectful diatribes include Erica Lukes (regarding the Roswell Slides debate, Isaac Koi incident, and harassment both online and in-person at conferences), Sharon Hill (regarding the Turkey UFO Attack hoax video and paranormal online discourse in general), and Leslie Kean (regarding the Chilean Navy infrared video case).

While I advocate for civility and empathy, a study published in Frontiers in Psychology last year called “Changing Conspiracy Beliefs through Rationality and Ridiculing” seems to indicate that empathy is not as effective as rationality and ridicule in the combating of “conspiracy theories.” Rationality should always be encouraged but I still prefer civility and empathy over ridicule, and think both are just rewards for those who wish to receive the same level of respect from others.

Book of the Week…
The UFO Enigma: A New Review of the Physical Evidence
By Peter A. Sturrock (Study Director)

Review of Peter Sturrock’s The UFO Engima by John Alexander

“In late September 1997 a multidisciplinary group of scientists convened at the picturesque Pocantico Conference Center near Tarrytown, New York to attempt to reevaluate the evidence pertaining to UFOs. Financially supported by Laurance Rockefeller, it was the author, Peter Sturrock, who brought the two disparate groups of scientists together. As president of the Society for Scientific Exploration, Sturrock had support from an organization dedicated to rigorously researching controversial issues. One group attending this meeting had been involved in research regarding the sensitive topic of aerial phenomena. The other group was comprised of individuals with esteemed scientific credentials but who had limited exposure to the UFO topic. They came agreeing to listen to the evidence with an open mind. This book describes in detail both the process by which they made their evaluation and the evidence supporting the case for further scientific study of UFOs.

While relying primarily on fairly well known UFO reports, this book constitutes an important contribution to a popular field infested with misinformation, misunderstandings, and tripe. The UFO Enigma will become one of the few books that scholars searching for more information about a controversial subject can turn to for reliable information.

The book represents a reasonable overview of the core topic — the physical realities of UFOs. It is not encumbered by the equally popular but more controversial aspects of phenomena, such as alien abductions, that may or may not be related to UFOs. Given the group of scientists they were attempting to influence, Sturrock and his cohorts were well advised to stick to the primary subject.”

October 27th, 2016 – Austin, Texas

We’ve entered that final quarter of the year that always seems to throw me for a loop; too much early-age holiday trauma baggage overload plus probable Seasonal Affective Disorder melancholy from lack of sunlight. Whatever excuses I muster, the fact remains this is the only installment of the “weekly” email newsletter likely to come out this month, and the next couple of months will likely prove equally sparse for newsletter delivery; upcoming day job trips to Washington, D.C. (just after this reality-tv election season) and other factors continue to conspire againstYOU getting your weekly dose of Anomaly Archives Weirdness!

Anyway, onward towards the content of this issue…

Austin, Texas: Epicenter of America’s
Mass-Murder MemeQuake

tower-doc-poster-02

I am a survivor of a mass shooting (San Antonio’s 1979 Parade Shooting) and have been following closely the public and media’s reception to the new documentary, TOWER, about the 50 year old mass-shooting event that took place here in the dark heart of Texas. Early responses have been tremendously positive and last week I had the pleasure of attending the Austin History Center’s opening event launching there new 50th Anniversary exhibit. As the largest archive of materials related to this tragic event (and a venue I am long familiar with from my life in Austin and use of its public spaces for various anomalistic meetings) it was good to see them participating in facilitating a public discussion of the film and the events it chronicles. The Austin History Center hosted an engaging round-table featuring TOWER director Keith Maitland and legendary local newsman Neal Spelce. AHC staffers led a fascinating talk with Maitland and Spelce that further compelled me to make the effort to see this documentary during its limited theatrical release. I finally saw it with my wife this past weekend and we were both moved to tears throughout the movie. This is a powerful film that focuses on some of the stories of those there that day, weaving real archival footage together with digitally rotoscoped animation reenactments plus recent interview footage of those survivors whose stories are portrayed. As a fan of local filmmaker Linklater’s pioneering use of this animated rotoscoping process (as seen in his moviesWaking Life and A Scanner Darkly – both coincidentally featuring cameo’s by Alex Jones) I really appreciated the use of this animation technique for such a delicate documentary subject as this traumatic event. I highly recommend that people seek out and support this movie.

This edition’s Book-of-the-Week is one of the Contactee Classics: The Secret of the Saucers from Orfeo Angelucci. Ignoring the rumors of strange relations with sheep … was ole Orville dosed with psychedelics by government operatives? Inquiring minds want to know!

Surreal Elections Season … I’m not the only one who’s noticed the rocketing rise of local conspiracy-media-mogul and fear-mongering radio show host Alex Jones, who has been catapulted into the stratosphere of mass public awareness propelled by this presidential election season’s contentious candidates and even the current pResident at the White House actually naming him in public speeches:Austin’s Alex Jones: The voice in Donald Trump’s head – Jonathan Tilove,American-Statesman

Keeping with the creeping paranoia… conspiracy theories galore have taken over the mainstream; from the global outbreak of Stalking-Clownspiracy to MSM coverage of Gang-Stalking claims (San Diego mom thinks she’s the victim of “community stalking” (Video) – ABC 10 News) coincident with the passing of critically acclaimed novelist Gloria Naylor (R.I.P. 1950-2016) who wrote about apparent government surveillance and harassment (listen to NPR’s Ed Gordon talks with Naylor about her ‘1996’: Under the Watchful Eye of the Government).

Book of the Week…
The Secret of the Saucers
By Orfeo Angelucci

secret-of-saucers-orfeo-angeluci

Nowadays we might be a little more circumspect than to accept spiked drinks from strangers, but Orfeo gladly accepts the glass and gulps the fizz down, immediately recognising it as the liquid ‘nectar’  given to him on previous meetings with the Space Beings, documented in his first book Secrets of the Saucers.

What Angelucci describes next sounds like a classic, benevolent psychedelic experience:

I thrilled from head to foot as I took the glass, lifted it to my lips, and swallowed twice from it. At that instant I entered, with Adam, into a more exalted state and everything around me took on a different semblance. No longer was I in Tiny’s cafe in Twentynine Palms. It had been transformed into a cozy retreat on some radiant star system. Though everything remained in its same position, added beauty and meaning were given to the things and people present there.

While it would be naive to treat the writings of a man who claims to have had multiple contacts with space beings as entirely unenhanced autobiography, I can’t help but wonder whether the alien visitation beliefs of Angelucci and others were being exploited, or even generated, by people working in one or other clandestine branches of the military or intelligence organisations. Perhaps the US Army’s Special Operations Division, which began experimenting with hallucinogens and chemical warfare in the 1940s, or the CIA, whose infamous MK-ULTRA programme, beginning in 1953 (with antecedents like Chatter, Bluebird and Artichoke operating from 1947) explored the use of drugs, hypnosis and radiation as tools for mind control.

ORFEO ANGELUCCI … always seemed to make the best impression in person of any of the mid-1950s contactees. The general impression I get from reading accounts of these gentlemen’s interview and platform styles is that George Van Tassel made the worst overall impression, speaking in a strained voice and never making eye contact with the audience (I diagnose stage-fright), while founding father George Adamski was always genial and laid-back, but Orfeo (also known as Orville) Angelucci radiated enthusiasm, sincerity and humility, in a very winning combination.  It didn’t hurt that Orville was thin and aesthetic-looking.  The usual contactee was a taxi-driver, mechanic or sign-painter in daily life, and it always showed. Angelucci didn’t found his own religious cult, unlike most of the contactees, but he did use his space-brotherly communications to give validation to the many strange ideas about physics, astronomy and biology that he had been “working on” for decades before his initial contact claims.

September 17th, 2016 – Austin, Texas

Our recent event featuring former military remote viewer Paul Smith was a tremendous success. We had a full-house and as always, Paul delivered a wealth of information to begin one’s search regarding the weird and wild world where UFOs and Remote Viewing cross-paths.
Paul Smith Alerts Attendees to the Upcoming Remote Viewing Conference.

If you were unable to attend the lecture, a video of Paul’s presentation shoud be available soon thanks to Chuck Robison of what if it really works dot com – for now though, you can listen to this rough audio edition of the lecture (this MP3 link will be up for a limited time, so check it out while you can).

I’m not going to have time to post all of the amazing news article links like I usually do but  you can find all of them at our Flipboard page. Check em out at the Anomaly Archives Flipboard.

Book of the Week…
Communion
A True Story
By Whitley Strieber

communion-signed-strieber-weaver_3764

“The cover painting of an alien was rendered by Ted Seth Jacobs. The painting is considered one of the most widely recognized popular culture images of alleged “grey” aliens. “The Communion cover,” Jacobs recounts,

communion-signed-strieber-weaver_3766“was painted in my small apartment on East 83rd St, in New York City. Whitley sat with me first for a drawing of the Alien. As I sketched, he would indicate how to change the portrait so that it would more match what he saw. It was, I believe, the process used by police sketch artists. Every last detail was corrected according to his instructions. At one point, he said the image corresponded exactly to what he had seen. With Whitley beside me for the subsequent session, I began to paint the image on a wooden prepared panel, going through the same process as for the drawing, until Whitley finally said the image was exact. … As to the gender of the Alien image, to tell the truth, the subject didn’t come up. I don’t even know if the ‘greys’ have gender as we understand it. Whitley corrected the developing image to have a certain fragility, a vulnerability. I suppose we Earthlings usually associate these qualities with femininity.”[2]

Paul Smith – 
“Remote Viewing UFOs”

Presented by the Anomaly Archives

Paul Smith on Remote Viewing and UFOs

“Using one mystery to try to explain another: That’s what seems to be happening in the perpetual interplay between remote viewing (RV) and unidentified aerial phenomena–popularly known as UFOs–space aliens, and everything connected to them in the popular culture. This confluence of RV and UFOs goes back almost to the beginning of remote viewing itself, and not just the notorious, but some of the most prominent and respected members of the remote viewing community have indulged. Impossible to fully capture in one evening discussion, I nonetheless introduce you to the general outlines of the controversy, sketch for you the interrelationships of some of the main figures and their claims, show you some of the more provocative and interesting results, and explain the advantages and shortfalls of employing remote viewing to ferret out the truth of extraterrestrial visitation.”
