 – 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.

Book of the Week…

The Children of Mu
By James Churchward

Mu, as a lost Pacific Ocean continent, was later popularised by James Churchward (1851–1936) in a series of books, beginning with Lost Continent of Mu, the Motherland of Man (1926),[2] re-edited later as The Lost Continent Mu (1931).[8] Other popular books in the series are The Children of Mu (1931), and The Sacred Symbols of Mu (1933).

Churchward claimed that “more than fifty years ago,” while he was a soldier in India, he befriended a high-ranking temple priest who showed him a set of ancient “sunburnt” clay tablets, supposedly in a long lost “Naga-Maya language” which only two other people in India could read. Having mastered the language himself, Churchward found out that they originated from “the place where [man] first appeared—Mu.” The 1931 edition states that “all matter of science in this work are based on translations of two sets of ancient tablets:” the clay tables he read in India, and a collection of 2,500 stone tablets that had been uncovered by William Niven in Mexico.[8]:7

Churchward gave a vivid description of Mu as the home of an advanced civilization, the Naacal, which flourished between 50,000 and 12,000 years ago, was dominated by a “white race,”[8]:48 and was “superior in many respects to our own”[8]:17 At the time of its demise, about 12,000 years ago, Mu had 64,000,000 inhabitants and many large cities, and colonies on the other continents.

Churchward claimed that the landmass of Mu was located in the Pacific Ocean, and stretched east–west from the Marianas to Easter Island, and north–south from Hawaii to Mangaia. He claimed that according to the creation myth he read in the Indian tablets, Mu had been lifted above sea level by the expansion of underground volcanic gases. Eventually Mu “was completely obliterated in almost a single night”:[8]:44 after a series of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, “the broken land fell into that great abyss of fire” and was covered by “fifty millions of square miles of water.”[8]:50

Churchward claimed that Mu was the common origin of the great civilizations of Egypt, Greece, Central America, India, Burma and others, including Easter Island, and was in particular the source of ancient megalithic architecture. As evidence for his claims, he pointed to symbols from throughout the world, in which he saw common themes of birds, the relation of the Earth and the sky, and especially the Sun. Churchward claims that the king of Mu was named Ra and he relates this to the Egyptian god of the sun, Ra, and the Rapanui word for Sun, ra’a, which he incorrectly spells “raa.”[8]:48 He claimed to have found symbols of the Sun in “Egypt, Babylonia, Peru and all ancient lands and countries – it was a universal symbol.”[8]:138

Churchward attributed all megalithic art in Polynesia to the people of Mu. He claimed that symbols of the sun are found “depicted on stones of Polynesian ruins,” such as the stone hats (pukao) on top of the giant moai statues of Easter Island. Citing W.J. Johnson, Churchward describes the cylindrical hats as “spheres” that “seem to show red in the distance”, and asserts that they “represent the Sun as Ra.”[8]:138 He also incorrectly claimed that some of them are made of “red sandstone”[8]:89 which does not exist on the island. The platforms on which the statues rest (ahu) are described by Churchward as being “platform-like accumulations of cut and dressed stone,” which were supposedly left in their current positions “awaiting shipment to some other part of the continent for the building of temples and palaces.”[8]:89 He also cites the pillars “erected by the Māori of New Zealand” as an example of this lost civilization’s handiwork.[8]:158 In Churchward’s view, the present-day Polynesians are not descendants of the dominant members of the lost civilization of Mu, responsible for these great works, but are instead descendants of survivors of the cataclysm that adopted “the first cannibalism and savagery” in the world.[8]:54

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 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.”

Reading The Enemy’s Mind:
Inside Star Gate – America’s Psychic Espionage Program
By Paul H. Smith

“From behind the cloak of U.S. military secrecy comes the story of Star Gate, the project that for nearly a quarter of a century trained soldiers and civilian spies in extra-sensory perception (ESP). Their objective: To search out the secrets of America ‘s cold war enemies using a skill called “remote viewing.” Paul H. Smith, a U.S. Army Major, was one of these viewers. Assigned to the remote viewing unit in 1983 at a pivotal time in its history, Smith served for the rest of the decade, witnessing and taking part in many of the seminal national-security crises of the twentieth century.

With the Star Gate secrets declassified and the program mothballed by the Central Intelligence Agency, the story can now be told of the ordinary soldiers drafted onto the battlefield of human consciousness. Using hundreds of interviews with the key players in the Star Gate program, and gathering thousands of pages of documents, Smith opens the records on this remarkable chapter in American military, scientific, and cultural history. He reveals many secrets about how remote viewing works and how it was used against enemy targets. Among these stories are the search for hostages in Lebanon; spying on Soviet directed energy weapons; investigating the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland; tracking foreign testing of weapons of mass destruction; combating narco-trafficking off America’s coasts; aiding in the Iranian hostage situation; finding KGB moles in the CIA; pursuing Middle East terrorists; and more.

Between the lines in the official records are revelations about unrelenting attempts from within and without to destroy the remote viewing program, and the efforts that kept Star Gate going for more than two decades in spite of its enemies. This is a story for the believer and the skeptic—a rare look at the innards of a top secret program and an eye-opening treatise on the power of the human mind to transcend the limitations of space and time.”

Remote Viewing & 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.

About Paul H. Smith …

Paul H. Smith was recruited into Star Gate remote viewing psychic espionage program in 1983. During his seven years in that program, he studied under the legendary Hal Puthoff and Ingo Swann, served as a first-line operational remote viewer, wrote the official manual on controlled remote viewing, and taught CRV to new military remote viewer candidates.  Among his students are included now-famous remote viewers such as Lyn Buchanan, Mel Riley, and David Morehouse.  Paul has briefed and demonstrated remote viewing to senators, admirals and generals, and other senior military and government officials.  He is president and chief instructor of Remote Viewing Instructional Services, Inc., and is a founding director of the non-profit International Remote Viewing Association, of which he is president.  His book “Reading the Enemy’s Mind: Inside Star Gate – ­America’s Psychic Espionage Program,” was a Book Bonus Feature and Editors Choice Selection for Readers Digest.

His latest book is “The Essential Guide to Remote Viewing: The Secret Military Remote Perception Skill Anyone Can Learn.”  Paul is also co-producer of the acclaimed DVD-based  “Learn Dowsing” training course, and the “Remote Perception: Basic Operational Training” remote viewing home-study program.  He has a BA from Brigham Young University, an MS from the National Defense University (both in Middle Eastern Studies), and a Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Texas at Austin, writing on consciousness, philosophy of mind, and philosophy of science.

anomalyarchivesThe Anomaly Archives Weekly Email Newsletter

August 14th, 2016 – Austin, Texas

It’s been a couple of weeks since the last issue… the newsletter will likely continue along in the near future in irregularly scheduled installments.

Successful anomalous events organized by and/or featuring friends and acquaintances have recently occurred across North America – sadly, I wasn’t able to attend any of them. These ranged from the Cryptozoological Dogman Symposium organized by Ken Gerhard (and featuring Nick Redfern, Lyle Blackburn and others) to the East Coast Paracon (featuring friends Greg Bishop, Paul Kimball, Aaron Gulyas, Tim Binnall, and others) and down here in Texas, theEdinburg “Out of this World” UFO Festival (organized by Noe Torres and featuring David Hatcher Childress, Nick Redfern, Ben Hansen, Lynne Kitei, and Stephen Andrasko).

Sadly, the field of UFO inquiry has lost another great seeker… Errol Bruce-Knapp. Many in the field of (what passes for) UFO “research” won’t know who he is but they should. I came to know of him through his moderation of one of the oldest and most important UFO email lists, UFO UpDates (Archives 1996-2013). You can learn more about him (including his involvement in off-shore Pirate Radio DJ years) and his important contributions facilitating communication and hosting a community of UFO truth seekers by listening to these interviews here (on the Spectrum Radio Network), and here (with fellow Canadian Paul Kimball). He hosted several terrestrial radio shows and transitioned to internet streaming and podcasting his Strange Days… Indeed (and Mind Shift) programs. I was honored to be a guest on his show back on September 11th, 2007 (MP3). Good luck finding all of his wonderful interviews of some of the best UFO researchers. Here you can listen to him talk with legendary Area-51 researcher Glen Campbell(MP3), who hosted Errol’s UFO UpDates list site (and maintains the Archives).

“It’s alive… ALIVE!!” Austin Mufon has been resurrected as MUFON-ATX.

A couple of weeks ago I was surprised to learn that the local MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) chapter had been re-launched and begun monthly meetings held way up in the furthest reaches of North West Austin. I was involved in Austin Mufon from about 1990 until 2012 when its chain of leadership was finally broken. I led the group from about 1999 – 2002.

Above: Robert Powell “shares about cases from Georgia, England, Utah, Iowa, New York, and Canada as well as information on the process of UFO investigations.”

I was excited to learn of these new monthly meetings and attended the second such meeting held on July 31st. The meetings are at 7pm on the last Sunday of each month at Palm Beach Vapors. July’s meeting featured Austinite and Mufon’s Director of Research / Founder & Leader of Mufon’s Science Review Board. Also present were Texas Mufon leaders Steve Hudgeons (Director of Investigations & former State Director of Texas) and Teresa Turner (State Director of Texas – and State Section Director). There were about a dozen attendees from around Austin and outside the Central Texas metro area. The highlight of the meeting was getting a sneak peak of Robert Powell’s upcoming presentation for the annualMufon Symposium 2016 – Orlando, FL – August 25th-28th whose theme is “UFOs From Our Oceans to Outer Space.” Robert’s presentation is MUFON’s Top 10 UFO Cases for 2015. You can watch this sneak preview thanks to another attendee I was glad to meet, Daniel Jones of the Vortexas Network, whom I’d briefly met a few months ago in Dallas at the ParaMania event.

For this installment of the Book-of-the-Week we feel it appropriate to highlight the aforementioned Robert Powell’s contribution to the printed knowledge-base of UFO history. Robert was kind enough to speak about that history to our Anomaly Archives audience in his Lecture in 2014 (Video).

Our Monthly Public Meetings Are Changing! We Need Your Help! Why Not Volunteer? We’re transitioning our monthly public meetings into volunteerism opportunities. I’ll be up at the Anomaly Archives Saturday, August 27th from 1-3pm to train new volunteers on various on-going processes as well as upcoming special volunteer projects.

The Anomaly Archives holds Monthly Meetings on the Fourth Saturday of Each Month. Contact SMiles Lewis via email for updates. The meetings are held from 1-3pm at the INACS / Anomaly Archives headquarters located in North West Austin.

Coming up in September, the Anomaly Archives will be holding its annual Free Lecture Event. This year’s talk will be presented by former military Remote Viewer Paul Smith. Details Coming Soon!

Until next time…

Book of the Week…
UFOs and Government: A Historical Inquiry
By Michael D. Swords and Robert PowellWith contributions from Clas Svahn, Vicente-Juan Ballester Olmos, Bill Chalker, Barry Greenwood, Richard Thieme, Jan Aldrich, Steve Purcell
 ufos-and-govt
“Governments have been concerned about UFO sighting reports since WWII, but historians have never made a concerted attempt to understand their often contradictory responses to the phenomenon. How could something of such potential technological and national security consequence have left no visible trace in the history books? Whether it’s a conspiracy or not, the subject has been marginalized to such an extent that it’s as if the military never acted with alarm on the heels of a UFO sighting, as if the intelligence community never took up the issue behind closed doors, as if government research and development efforts never attempted to duplicate the phenomenon. But they have. Robert Powell will discuss how governments, especially the U.S. government, have dealt with the UFO phenomenon and will provide a hypothesis as to why the phenomenon took its roots during WWII.”

July 28th, 2016 – Austin, Texas

I’ve been reading a variety of print books lately, including Jacques Vallée’s latest published journals (Volume 3: 1980-1989), some rare writings of the late Bob Girard, as well as Whitley Strieber & Jeff Kripal’s latest effort. All of which (and more on my mind) get me thinking about fundamentals of UFO research and some of the earliest attempts at grappling with the mystery. Jacques Vallée’s first attempt is our Book-of-the-Week.

We say it each issue but … we hope you enjoy this newsletter and might consider supporting our efforts by Becoming a Member Today!

Book of the Week…
Anatomy of a Phenomenon
aka UFOs in Space
by Jacques Vallée
vallee-anatomy-phenomenon-01

Amazon.com reviews:

This is a classic work by a well known investigator / scientist / researcher that has been around for years. It represents the ‘old school’ if I may, style of Ufology, which is sorely lacking nowadays. Those were the days that a light in the sky (LIT) would be reason for me to run outside and mount a night long skywatch. No hints of implants, abductions, Roswell, Area 51, etc. I truly recommend this work for anyone who is just starting to learn about this forbidden subject (UFOs) and then take it from there, it will be worth the effort.
