May 31st, 2016 – Another week, another newsletter…

Some great Anomaly-News-Headlines and a challenging music video Cargo Culture treat in lieu of the Book-of-the-Week. But … “Trigger Warning” … its a doozy featuring themes of remote mind (and body) control via mysterious gleaming spherical drone (like in the cult classic Phantasm series). You’ve been warned.

May 23rd, 2016 – Here we are … one week later.

A quick follow-up from last week’s headlines about a teenager discovering an ancient lost Mayan city; turns out a UT Austin professor and others have debunked the poor reporting according to a reporter with the last name of Mulder at the LA Times:

A 15-year-old boy discovered a lost city by theorizing that a modern star map would correlate with ancient Mayan settlements. … David Stuart, a professor at the University of Texas at Austin and one of the world’s leading experts on the Maya, was among the first to raise an alarm. He argued that the square shape Gadoury saw on a satellite image of the Maya heartland was probably a fallow agricultural field. Since then, numerous other experts have cast doubts on Gadoury’s city, some even presenting evidence that what was aligned with the constellations was actually an old marijuana plot.”   LAtimes.com

You can find the link to that and other interesting news items in our Anomalous Headlines section below.

For this week’s Book-Of-The-Week we are featuring the controversial work of journalist Annie Jacobsen. She has written a series of books on topics near and dear to the UFO & Conspiracy communities; one on the mysterious Area 51, another on the nefarious Project Paperclip Nazis, and another on the spooky tech haunting our world (and paid for by our tax dollars) from the bowels of DARPA. Oh and let’s not forgot Annie’s other claim to infamy from before her voluminous forays into flying-saucer-conspiracy-culture: her 2004 claim to have witnessed a group of terrorists doing a “dry-run” aboard a commercial flight she was on.

Book of the Week…
Area 51: An Uncensored History of America’s Top Secret Military Base

by Annie Jacobsen

419OjHWv5ZL._SX327_BO1204203200_Excerpt from Norio Hayakawa’s commentary / review of Area 51 by Annie Jacobsen:

Annie Jacobsen’s book is well written, riveting and thought-provoking!!

The interesting question, however, is:

Did she intentionally allow many gullible reviewers (even a few military aviation enthusiasts who fell into this entrapment) to exclusively focus on the controversy… (i.e., the last 8 pages which have little to do with the rest of her thick and rather straightforward book)?

Indeed it seems that most reviewers (including a New York Times reviewer, and even L.A. Times itself) were sidetracked by this provocative item and unwittingly played a role in sensationalizing her book.

Her ‘anonymous’ interviewee (no longer anonymous, as I stated…Alfred O’Donnell of E.G. & G.) may also have fallen for the trap by agreeing to throw in an obvious piece of disinformation (which he may well have been aware of, as well as Jacobsen herself….as disinformation) for her book.

(as I stated, Alfred O’Donnell had joined E.G. & G. in 1947 when the defense contractor was established)

The strategy seemed to have worked and the book became a top-seller.

It was quite brilliant.

* The book definitely brings up a very important topic, i.e., the significance of Operation Paperclip that played a major role in the subsequent development of America’s Black Budget programs.

Read the rest of Norio’s commentary at his website.

May 16th, 2016 – Welcome to another edition of the weekly eNews.

saucer-smear-october-20-2012Moseley Mystery – This past week the final issue of Saucer Smear (possibly the longest running Flying Saucer / UFO newsletter in North America) was finally delivered, posthumously… about four years after the passing of James Moseley. Past “non-subscribers” were abuzz with news of the October 20th, 2012 issue arriving in their mailboxes, affixed with the familiar typewriter-text “TO” address labels used by Moseley, but with no return address. Moseley was a true trickster and lived up to his many nicknames, including “Court-Jester of Ufology” (and worse), so for one last cosmic joke we raise a glass to Jim! As it turns out, it looks like this last act of stealth publication was the result of a grandchild; a comment from a visitor to the JimMoseley.com memorial site wrote on May 7th: “Jim has 7 grandchildren with whom he kept in touch with up until the end. His final “Saucer Smear” was mailed out to whatever list was available by 2nd girl Brittany Crain Hutchison just several months ago. It must have been a surprise to some as it was written in 2012! I am so glad there is this site.”

So of course, our Book-of-the-Week has to be Shockingly Close to the Truth! Confessions of a Grave-Robbing Ufologist by James W. Moseley & Karl T. Pflock.

And speaking of “Grave-Robbing Ufologists”…

One Year Anniversary of the Roswell Slides Debacle

My, how time flies; it was just about a year ago when the now infamous alien slides case was shown to be a terrible mis-identification of a mummified Native American boy’s remains as those of an anomalous alien being. UFO media mogul Jaime Mausan had been waging an unprecedented promotional campaign endorsing the images of the body as evidence of an alien being connected to the infamous Roswell event in the Summer of 1947. While the mundane nature of the corpse seems proven beyond a shadow of doubt, Mausan and his acolytes continue to carry the torch for this little body being something historic and non-human, while those Roswell obsessed researchers Don Schmitt and Tom Carey have waffled back and forth from admitting the “mystery” has been solved to suggesting there is still something “mysterious” about the body.

mummy[Above: Mummy spoof-poster by Jeff Ritzman]

I was lucky to be a witness privy to the informal open source investigative group called the RSRG (Roswell Slides Research Group) who cracked the blurry placard prominently displayed in the glass museum case the native child mummy was photographed within. Besides Maussan’s media campaign it was the mysterious slides documentarian Adam Dew and company who had found the slides and approached the “Dream Team” … while that filmmaker has yet to produce his movie (rumor is he’s still considering it), another documentarian named Simon Sharman has produced Cosmic Whistleblowers (IMDB) which touches on the saga.

I was honored to have Nick Redfern write these kind words back in May 2015:

“If you’re looking for the ultimate resource tool on the saga of the so-called “Roswell Slides,” the articles, the blog posts, and who said what, where and when, this is it, thanks to Stephen Miles Lewis of the Anomaly Archives. Check it out!”

Roswell Slides – Excellent Resource: Nick Redfern’s World of Whatever
Meanwhile, from our Headline News section, check out this interesting article from late last year that I missed at the time but was alerted to thanks to the guys at the Mysterious Universe podcast. They mentioned this article from late 2015, Drones Are the New UFOs by Jason Koebler at Motherboard.Vice.com – and I highly recommend the MU interview with Clas Svahn on Ghost Rockets Research (Audio). You can inexpensively access the new documentary at GhostRockets.se. I’ve bought my copy and am looking forward to watching the main feature and the accompanying extra footage. If you are interested in the Ghost Rockets era of UFO waves you should definitely check out this documentary and interviews with Clas Svahn as well as controversial ex-Mufon director James Carrion’s take on the subject including his Rosetta Deception and Anachronism, plus a slightly different approach by Micah Hanks in his book The Ghost Rockets: Mystery Missiles and Phantom Projectiles in our Skies.


Speakers, Coordinators, and Guests during the panel discussion.

Finally, in other news … I’ve been following the developments of Magic Leap and its photonic digital lightfield signal chip creating MR (Mixed Reality, after VR and AR for Virtual and Augmented Realities) and in a news piece from WIRED one of the Magic Leap employees interviewed about the technology of creating light that tricks the human perception interface says, “I think its like dreaming with your eyes open” … and I couldn’t help but think of one of the points Stephen LaBerge repeatedly made during his presentation at the Sleep, Consciousness and Lucid Dreaming event that just happened at UT Austin this past weekend. He said:

“Dreaming is perception constrained by sensory input.
Perception is dreaming constrained by sensory input.”

One of the main points made in LaBerge’s lecture was the similarity / parity of perceptual experience between the waking and dream states. The technology and commentary from some of the Magic Leap employees really reminded me of that point. Here are some pictures from the UT Dream event.

by James W. Moseley & Karl T. Pflock

shockingly-1Farewell to Supreme Commander Jim Moseley (1931-2012)
 – SMiles Lewis upon learning of Jim’s passing in November 2012.

“During our previous live PsiOp-Radio show I was informed by a friend of Jim’s ailing health. Shortly thereafter I learned of his passing on November 16th. Jim was an amazing soul who educated and entertained many a post-modern Fortean and Anomalist, myself included. I first met him at the 1999 NUFOC event in San Antonio, Texas. We began communicating about the possibility of my hosting the 2001 NUFOC in Austin. We met again at the 2000 NUFOC held in Corpus Christi, Texas. We interviewed him on PsiOp-Radio back in May of 2010. You can listen to that interview here. I wish I’d spoken to him again before his death. He will be missed.”

Smear’s James W. Moseley Dies

Moseley-1-1Fortean friend, ufology humorist, and writer James W. Moseley, 81, died Friday night, November 16, 2012. He passed away at a Key West, Florida, hospital, several months after being diagnosed with cancer of the esophagus.

Upon hearing of the death of Moseley, Anomalist Books publisher and editor Patrick Huyghe said: “He was one of the last remaining old timers from the golden age of flying saucers. Goodbye, Jim.”

Hail, Hail, The Gang’s All Here! – Remembering The Trickster of UFOlogy, Jim Moseley
By Sean Casteel

The “old guard” of UFOlogy is quickly passing away before our very eyes. First there was John Keel, then Richard Hall, Ingo Swann, George Fawcett and most recently a man who remained for many years one of the most controversial and influential figures in all of UFO-dom, a personality who many loved and others equally despised.

When James W. Moseley passed away on November 16, 2012, at a hospital in Key West, Florida, he left behind a great many friends to mourn him. Though his name may be unfamiliar to the younger members of the UFO community today, he was for many years a most provocative voice in the field of UFOlogy, known for being a comic trickster as well as a serious researcher of flying saucer and paranormal phenomena who broke new ground in coverage of the subjects with his publications “Saucer News” and “Saucer Smear.”

May 10th, 2016 – Welcome to another edition of our weekly eNews.

This week we’ve got some quick links to portions of one of my favorite musical documentaries: Caribbean Nights: The Bob Marley Story (1982). I saw this documentary on television when I was in high school and have remembered it ever since. There were several memorable quotes from the film but there was one in particular that stuck with me all these years that I’d wondered about for a long time … that Bob was allegedly a clairvoyant. There’s not much out there about this but when I recently came across the entire unedited documentary online (the version I had seen was taped off of television and had a lot of material cut out) I finally saw a little bit more about his supposed psychic abilities. In one of the excised clips his mother mentions that he had been a palm-reader but gave it up for singing. Whether you were a fan of his music or not, Bob left a lasting impression on the world-stage, and some believe he was murdered because of his influence on the masses.

For this week’s Book-of-the-WeekRagnarok: The Age of Fire and Gravel by Minnesota politician Ignatius L. Donnelly published in 1883. It is a companion to the more well-known work Atlantis: The Antediluvian World. Our copy is from the Bob Girard Collection. Just last week the man who made that donation happen, Tom Deuley, paid the Anomaly Archives a visit. We had a great time visiting with Tom and discussing the latest UFO sightings, MUFON, Bob Bigelow, and much more.

We have a slightly shorter list of Anomalous Headlines this week – but WOW – are they interesting! I particularly want to call your attention to the video of Robbie Graham’s 2014 lecture “UFOs, Hyperreality, and the Disclosure Myth”especially the last 10 minutes!!! Also of import is the highly critical review by skeptic Robert Sheaffer of David Jacobs’ latest book.

Ragnarok: The Age of Fire and Gravel

by Ignatius L. Donnelly (1883)

Ragnarok: The Age of Fire and Gravel is a book by Minnesota politician Ignatius L. Donnelly published in 1883. It is a companion to the more well-known work Atlantis: The Antediluvian World.

Author’s arguments

In Ragnarok, Donnelly argues that an enormous comet hit the earth 12,000 years ago, resulting in widespread fires, floods, poisonous gases, and unusually vicious and prolonged winters. The catastrophe destroyed a more advanced civilization, forcing its terrified population to seek shelter in caves. As cave-dwellers, they lose all knowledge of art, literature, music, philosophy, and engineering.

He cites as evidence 900-foot-deep cracks radiating out from the Great Lakes, and stretching for many miles away. He admits it has been proposed that ice-sheets caused these cracks, but suggests that this explanation is improbable, likening them instead to ‘cracks in a window which has been struck with a stone.’ If ice sheets could produce such cracks, he asks, why haven’t similar cracks been found anywhere else on the globe? He adds to this a discussion of surface rocks in New York City, which seem to have undergone a radical chemical change—the feldspar has been converted into slate and the mica has separated out from the iron, as if they had undergone tremendous heat and pressure, as they likely would in the event that a comet struck the earth. He rules out other theories that could have caused this, such as nitric acid and warm rains, by pointing out that this is an isolated incident, whereas warm rains can occur at any time and place and there’s no archaeological evidence for the nitric acid’s origins.

He points out many legends and myths from various cultures, such as Zoroastrian, Pictish, Hindu, and Ancient Greece, that are all suggestive of a comet striking the earth, the earth catching fire, poisonous gases choking people, and floods and tidal waves swamping large areas. He also points out early culture’s tendency to heliotheism, which evolved from an insane gratitude to the Sun, after so many horrific days without it.

The Anomaly Archives Weekly Email Newsletter

May 5th, 2016 – Perhaps the biggest problem preventing the legitimizing of UFO research is the rampant belief in “UFOs as Extra-Terrestrial Craft.” Many people who are skeptical about UFOs are so because of the behavior of UFO “true-believers” … they see in those believers the fervor of people caught-up in the uncritical trance of a religion.

Some writers have gone so far as to compare such believers to those technologically primitive cultures that worshiped the technology of more modern societies, aka Cargo Cults. During the 1990s, with the rise of popularity of TV shows such as The X-Files, these subject areas became so popular that it seemed every new commercial for a product or service began incorporating Alien and UFO themes.

In the Fall of 1994 (within the second issue of my ELFIS zine) I began an occasional column called “Cargo Culture” in which I and a couple of other contributing writers covered the ever-increasing use of UFO, paranormal, and alien-themed imagery within various Popular Culture media streams. In issue 6 (Summer 1998) of my ELFIS zine I introduced the ELFIS Cargo Culture Gallery. There I chronicled the many products and media references for such “Cargo Culture.”

With this week’s installment of the newsletter we are launching a new semi-regular section focused on such “Cargo Culture” – featuring links to some of those past ELFIS articles and gallery, as well as a brief blurb about a strange, unofficial UFO/Star Wars crossover product from my childhood, along with a link to a UFO themed video for the 2001 pop-song “Side” by the band “Travis.” I was very familiar with this song but had somehow never seen the very enjoyable video, until a couple of months ago when a friend sent me a link. We’ll feature more of this kind of “Cataloging of Cargo Culture” in future issues – I already have a wealth of material for this since people still continue to give me items featuring aliens and UFOs, despite my skepticism of an ET origin of said phenomenon.

Meanwhile, this week’s Book-of-the-Week is one that I had a couple of synchronicities with… late last year one of our local library volunteers was helping me re-organize the lending library collection and she came across the book Animal-Speak by Ted Andrews. It caught her attention because it features cover-art by her mother (Victoria Lisi), who happens to be a famous artist who has created many a cover of various Science Fiction / Fantasy books, including some with obvious UFO/Flying-Saucer imagery. Then a month or so ago, as a UT student was doing a preservation assessment of the Anomaly Archives (checking a random sample of books in the collection), he came across this book with surprise, saying it was a very sought-after book within the UT library system.

Also in this issue, we have the usual round-up of Anomalous Headlines, several of which deal with this issue’s theme of Cargo Culture, including tales of French villagers in the 1700s attacking a hydrogen-filled balloon (thinking it was a living animal), a man who thought a sex-doll was an angel fallen from heaven, and Chinese villagers who mistook a sex-toy for an unknown mushroom!

That’s all for now…

See you next week!

Cargo Cults & Para Culture

– alien entertainment, comics, clippings –

CARGO CULTure by SMiles

    We live in a world of emergent novelty. Or so we are told by Lyall Watson, Terence McKenna, Robert Anton Wilson and others. Human culture is one of the most novel systems the Earth has ever seen. It is a force which controls/influences every aspect of our lives. Billions of people’s Reality Tunnels are pumped in daily via the international TV media net. For the last couple of decades we have seen the rise of another net which will soon merge with the older audio/video networks-the information systems comprising all electronic processing technology on the planet. This epic union will hit overdrive as we witness the quality of sensory simulation increase. I am speaking, of course, of the emerging Virtual Reality technology. As the computer “images” become more completely and totally sensory, so too the interface of mind and machine will reach the level where there is no discernible physical connection. The obvious down side is the frightening possibilities that these technologies offer to would-be mind control conspiracists.

A connection has been drawn by observant researchers that UFO devotees, whether they be nuts and bolts techno-fetishists, space-brother wannabe spiritualists, or abductionologists seeking physical proof, exhibit similar traits as those “third worlders” who worship the cargo of us “moderns” (hence the term Cargo Cult). [see Cargo of the Gods by Paul Rydeen in Volume 1 of The Anomalist (PDF)] The analogy intimates humanity’s search for the UFO as philosopher’s stone, and is indicative of our hunger for divine product .This desire is evident in the need for divine space brothers as masters, so that we may attain enlightenment; the search for advanced alien technologies supposedly being researched in places like Area 51, Groom Lake, Nevada; and the quest for physical proof of the psychotronic implants of our abductors.

  • Cargo of the Gods? by Paul Rydeen, The Anomalist, Volume 1 (PDF)

“Cargo cults and saucer groups are alike in having a millenial ideal; the forms this ideal takes are remarkably similar. They both have a non-personal entity (the ancestors and the Space Brothers) expected to manifest via mechanical vehicles (planes, ships, UFOs) bringing cargo (chocolate bars, radios, and postnuclear peacekeeping technology) and a just salvation. The impetus for both groups is not necessarily the material goods, but the status they bring… page 63

13_theme_cargocult2“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” – Arthur C. Clarke

“Who is John Frum? He is known to us by many names, this Visitor from Elsewhere, dispenser of endless abundance and wielder of mysterious technologies: John Frum, Quetzalcoatl, Osiris, “Bob.” His cargo is splendid, his generosity boundless, his motives beyond our understanding. But across the ages and around the world, the stories all agree: one day he will return, bearing great gifts. Our theme this year asks three related questions; who is John Frum, where is he really from, and where, on spaceship Earth, are we all going? …”

Appropriation of UFO Themes & Science Fiction Memes

img_0996-1.jpg

Above artwork attributed to Bruce Pennington (here, here, here)

Some time after the release of Star Wars my mom procured a small supply of fabric from a local crafts store that featured likely unlicensed representations of characters and vehicles from the Star Wars franchise. These apparently bootleg, knock-off images were overlaid upon a colorful scene featuring flying-saucers lifting up human shapes inside a blue-beam, an apparent “cloud-cigar” type of UFO ejecting baby ball-of-light orbs as well as levitating humanoids next to their astral light-bodies. Most of this imagery was lost on me at the time as I was very young and was just becoming aware of the UFO phenomenon in general. My mother had gotten the fabric because of my love of Star Wars – she created a small, thin pillow with the fabric and I’ve had it ever since. It wasn’t until recently that I realized that the sci-fi movie imagery was not part of the original artwork. Perhaps this early age exposure to such iconic UFO imagery is part of what led me down this path of being so obsessed with all things ufological.

[See gallery of pics (at bottom of Cargo Culture page) of a homemade pillow created by SMiles’ mother using a cloth pattern featuring the above Bruce Pennington artwork with UFO related imagery overlaid with Star Wars “knock-off” imagery.]

Official video for “Side”, taken from Travis’ third studio album, ‘The Invisible Band’ (2001), released on Independiente Records.

Lyrics to “Side” by Travis

Well I believe there’s something watching over you
They’re watching every single thing you say
And when you die they’ll set you down and take you through
You’ll realize one day

That the grass is always greener on the other side
The neighbor’s got a new car that you want to drive
And when time is running out you want to stay alive

We all live under the same sky
We all will live we all will die
There is no wrong
There is no right
The circle only has one side

We all try hard to live our lives in harmony
For fear of falling swiftly overboard
But life is both a major and minor key
Just open up the chord

But the grass is always greener on the other side
The neighbour’s got a new car that you want to drive
And when time is running out you want to stay alive

We all live under the same sky
We all will live
We all will die
There is no wrong
There is no right
The circle only has one side

The Anomaly Archives Weekly Email Newsletter

April 27th, 2016 – This edition is already overdue, and mi madre will be here for a visit any minute, so …

Enjoy this Princely, Royal-Purple issue of our weekly newsletter as we say FAREWELL to the Prince-of-Pop! Another celebrity with noteworthy conspiracy-street-cred sheds this mortal coil amid speculations of “murder by elite Illuminati” type cabals.

We’ve got the purple-covered Ceto’s New Friends kid’s book by then “Alien Abductee” Leah Haley. Our friend Greg Bishop recently reminded us of the historical hysterical review written (for this “controversial” tome) by none other than Bob Girard, whose personal collection we now control. BTW – we don’t have a copy of this book but you can see it among our (needed to be updated) Amazon Account Wish List!

We’ve also got purple-themed headlines including science articles on the purplish hidden-hand of “Dark Matter” … kinda sounds like conspiracy shenanigans again, eh?

Well – Mom’s Here! Enjoy the issue!

Book of the Week…

Ceto’s New Friends  by Leah Haley (1994)

Review by Bob Girard in his Arcturus Books CataZine Newsletter Catalog:

cetos-new-friends“My jaw dropped so far down when I saw this that my belly button hurt for a week (though it might have been a sinking feeling in the pit of my gut causing the pain, I admit). This is a book for ultra-young readers by abductee / author Leah Haley (Lost was the Key). It has a total of 281 words in the text. It’s apparent intention is to introduce toddlers to alien abductions early (say, age 3 or so), before they find out the hard way — later in life — via trauma, ruined lives, etc., and to make the introduction a friendly one, in which the toddlers apply their innate trust in all things and all beings to the very monsters who are going to stick long needles into their bellies, ram huge contraptions up their behinds, empty their brains, make them pregnant and then rip out the fetuses, cut them, scrape them, inflict unspeakable pain on them and tell them (if anything at all) ‘it is necessary that we do this.’

Of course, none of those things ever happen to the two tykes in the book — and that’s what strikes me as being the ultimate Big Lie that one could ever inflict upon a totally impressionable mind: the idea that the greys are our friends. Sorry folks — I think it’s a bad idea to fill tiny little heads with Santa Claus just because you want to see ‘em glow with happy anticipation around Christmastime. It’s bad to stuff Jesus, heaven and hell into all-trusting minds. And it’s certainly bad to lie to infants about alien interaction with humans.This is the most unfortunate development in UFOlogy in many years, certain to create numerous traumas of it’s own for some of it’s innocent little readers — as they find out first hand what the greys really do with humans. This book is an appalling artifact — we recommend it only for extremely open-minded adults. Keep it locked up like you keep your handguns locked up, so that the kiddies don’t blow their heads off.”

The Anomaly Archives Weekly Email Newsletter

April 18th, 2016 – Another week and another wave of classic-era UFO writers “crossing over”… first we got word of MIB / Men-In-Black mythos creator Albert Bender passing and then came notice of Trevor James (UFOs as Amoeboid Space Critters) Constable having passed as well.

[EDIT: This morning as I’m preparing to send out this issue I get word from Loren Coleman that he just got word that UFOlogist Robert Hall (brother of deceased UFO researcher Richard Hall) apparently passed away back in 2013.]

Trevor Constable’s ideas about UFOs as living creatures have always been appealing to me; though this fascination has not translated for me to modern “Rod” & “Orb” photography phenomena. Back in the Fall of 1998 I reprinted and linked to some other writers speculating along these same lines; two articles by Andrew Gaze from Jim Kieth’s Dharma Combat zine as well as an exploration of the idea by a then modern software developer. See links at the end of this week’s Book-Of-The-Week section.


INACS Presents…

Bruce Naylor on the Evolution of Science & Religion

April 19, 2016, 6:30–9 p.m.
INACS Nerve Center (directions)
12593 Research Blvd., Suite 302, Austin, Texas 78759

RSVP at the Consciousness Connections Meetup so they can accommodate all attendees. Open to the public. $5 non-member donation appreciated.

“Science and religion are considered the two great schemas for understanding existence. We will be exploring how science provides a “naturalistic” understanding of the universe, and how religion can be recast from the naturalistic perspective.

We will begin with the social brain, exploring how being a social animal shaped the evolution of our brains, and how religion evolved as part of this process. We’ll continue with its connection to group selection in evolution. The initial focus will be on hierarchical social structures and how warfare could be intertwined with religion and tribal thinking in general, through group selection.

Bruce Naylor holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science and has worked for over 30 years in the field of gaming technology. He previously taught at Georgia Tech, UT Austin, and Rutgers. Dr. Naylor spent 10 years at AT&T Bell Labs Research and invented Game Engine Technology used in many games, including DOOM, Quake, Half-Life, and Call of Duty. He has also started game and simulation technology companies. Bruce has many interests in science, foremost being the Science of the Brain.”

Book of the Week…

Cosmic Pulse of Life:
The Revolutionary Biological Power Behind Ufo’s

by Trevor James Constable

Cosmic-Pulse-of-Life“This book presents evidence that UFOs are mainly invisible and consist of both physical craft and living, biological creatures. The author convincingly shows that our atmosphere is the home of huge, invisible living organisms that are sometimes confused with spacecraft when they became visible. Mr. Constable has photographed both types of UFOs with special infrared film, some of which are reproduced in this expanded and updated edition. Despite his bold leap into the future, the general public and official ufology have a hard time accepting the evidence. In recent years teams of engineers and technicians in both Italy and Romania, unaware of Constable’s earlier discoveries, obtained virtually identical infrared photos of UFOs, which were published in Italy. In 1996, NASA used ultraviolet-sensitive videotape to record swarms of invisible UFOs that looked like Constable’s earlier photos. Examples from these photos are also contained in this book. Also covered are earlier pioneers into important life energies that play a big role in this research, including Wilhelm Reich, Rudolf Steiner, and Dr. Ruth B. Drown. This is an important book, recommended for those interested in the higher realms of our physical reality.”

Back in the 1990s when I was briefly publishing my E.L.F. Infested Spaces zine I met fellow Texan, Bernie Nelson, who claimed to be a victim of psychotronic mind control. His wild story made for a very interesting read. For this week’s issue I’ve selected his telling of the tale as our Book-of-the-Week.

Correction: The Aurora Alien Encounter event in Aurora, Texas, is happening THIS weekend. If you are unable to attend physically, tickets are also available to Be There Virtually Via YouTube Stream; brought to you by VorTexas!

April 6th, 2016 – So I DID end up going to Dallas this past weekend for the ParaMania un-conference! A wonderful time was had by all. Because I was out of town I had very little time to work on this newsletter. Therefore it’s little skimpier on the Anomalous Headlines this week.

In lieu of our usual number of news headlines, I’ll opt for some brief descriptions of the ParaMania event in Dallas…

paramania-2016-dallas-tx

  • UnConference “a loosely structured conference emphasizing the informal exchange of information and ideas between participants, rather than following a conventionally structured program of events.

Back in September of 2015, a fan (Steve Ray) who frequently called into Greg Bishop‘s live Sunday-night Radio Misterioso show, began proposing an informal gathering in Dallas, Texas for past guests and current fans of the show to meetup in person. Then in early October, a special live dual-simulcast of Greg’s Radio Misterioso and Tim Binnall‘s Binnall of America shows featured the official announcement of ParaMania. Also in October, I had the pleasure of meeting face-to-face with Steve Ray at the 2015 Secret Space Conference held in Bastrop, Texas. [BTW – the organizers of that event are holding the next Breakthrough Energy Movement Conference at the same location May 28-29. Early Bird Registration is happening now.]

Micah Hanks & Greg Bishop

Organized as an “UnConference,” this was a very small, intimate, FREE event designed to allow attendees to fraternize with radio show hosts Greg Bishop, Tim Binnall, and any and all past guests of the shows as well as fans of the shows – with a possible lecture or two from some of the notables. The name of the event was partly inspired by the WrestleMania event which was also occurring that weekend in Dallas (and to which our event host, Steve Ray, had invited to pay for tickets). As it turned out, other authors and radio/podcast show-hosts such as Joshua Cutchin (author of A Trojan Feast: The Food and Drink Offerings of Aliens, Faeries, and Sasquatch) and Micah Hanks (host of various podcasts including The Gralien Report and author of such books as The UFO Singularity, The Ghost Rockets, The Complete Guide to Maverick Podcasting and others), Miguel Romero (aka Anomalist-Artist “Red Pill Junkie”), Tina Sena (whip-smart writer at BoARoejen Razorwire (Project Archivist podcast) AND OTHERS traveled to Texas for this event.

Folks who made the trek to Dallas enjoyed leisurely para-oriented tourist activities such as the obligatory trip to Dealey Plaza and The Sixth Floor Museum that carries the torch of the official mainstream “Lone-Gunman” / “Oswald-Did-It” non-conspiracy. Attendees also took a trip to the nearby Aurora, Texas cemetery where Surprise Guest Jim Marrs regaled folks with the strange tale of that town’s crashed UFO and buried alien body. Then later the true die-hards were treated to a special alien-themed party at a local “Castle / Mansion” featuring inflatable aliens, big green alien headed balloons, napkins with alien faces, etc. Local prolific writer / researcher Nick Redfern had hoped to attend but was unable to due to transportation difficulties.

The real meat of the weekend (for me at least) was the actual “UnConference” held at a nearby community recreation center close to the hotel. There we were regaled with brief lectures from Greg Bishop, Joshua Cutchin, Micah Hanks, and even our host Steve Ray. The festivities were MC’d by Tim Binnall and the atmosphere was fun and informal with lots of give and take between the presenters and the audience members. Audio, photos, and video of the presentations was recorded by many of those present and may be forthcoming. Some of the pictures are already online at the Facebook event page as well as lots of photos and videos at the personal pages of the attendee’s. Check out my own Photo Gallery for ParaMania 2016 at the Anomaly Archives.

Greg Bishop gave a “Show & Tell” with personal anecdotes and photos from his recent excavations into his Excluded Middle magazine and Project Beta / Bennewitz research days. He spoke about his interactions with the Reverend Ivan Stang, Richard Metzger, Gabe Valdez, and the Mirage Men author and documentariens, as well as fellow zine-sceners who went to the infamous Texufornia Kook-Outs at which Greg once famously faked out his friends with a Ufaux sighting of our own. He also brought original hand-written correspondence between Paul Bennewitz and other UFO researchers!

Joshua Cutchin presented his A Trojan Feast lecture based on the research he published last year in his excellent book. Cutchin’s material and presentation were excellent and reminded me of his and my appearance on Tim Beckley’s Unraveling the Secrets show about a year ago. Check out his book!

Micah Hanks educated and entertained the attendees in his inimitable style. Hanks spoke about one of his more recent books which I’d been wondering about for some time… The Ghost Rockets: Mystery Missiles and Phantom Projectiles in our Skies.


Micah Hanks Gesticulates on Ghost Rockets

Last, but certainly not least, was a presentation by ParaMania Host, Steve Ray. Ray broke his silence on a years-long research project that he and another fan of Greg Bishop’s Radio Misterioso had been working on involving attempts to create / engineer synchronicities during Greg’s radio show. A fascinating attempt at creating, categorizing, and cataloging meaningful coincidences!


Host Steve Ray on Creating Synchronicity within Radio Misterioso

Overall, everyone seemed to have a wonderful time and the camaraderie was deep with many professing how inspired the event made them feel. Many have expressed a desire to hold more of these types of events in the near future and sequels seem inevitable … ParaMania-2: Electric Boogaloo, Coming Soon!

For this issue’s Book-of-the-Week I’ve selected the book I am currently reading which is Greg Bishop’s latest: It Defies Language! Essays On UFOs And Other Weirdness.

See you next week!

It Defies Language! Essays On UFOs And Other Weirdness
By Greg Bishop

IDLCover“A collection of essays about the UFO subject and related phenomena. The first chapter discusses the U.S. Government’s involvement along with the author’s personal experiences with agents and military personnel. The text also includes historical perspectives on the subject, and theories and opinions on the current search for answers about UFOs from a viewpoint that is neither belief-based nor that of a doctrinaire skeptic. There are also entries about square craters on the Moon, black-eyed kids, and baseball games at Area 51.”

Foreword by Nick Redfern.
Illustrated by “Red Pill Junkie.”

March 31st, 2016 – Better late than never! Here’s another weekly installment of our newsletter…

No time for long introductions this week. I MAY be going out of town later today and meeting up with a bunch of friends in Dallas this weekend for a pseudo-conference / un-conference called ParaMania! Or I might not – I truly don’t know at this moment.

Anywho – in this issue our Book-of-the-Week is back! Plus we have a good number of Anomalous Headlines, as usual.

Book of the Week…
The UFO Experience: A Scientific Inquiry

By Josef Allen Hynek

For a time, Hynek was the iconic image of the skeptical UFO researcher. He’s still a source of much fascination and controversy among Ufolks.

His reputation as a skeptic turned believer is a part of the standard UFO history yet there are still mysteries that swirl around him. Was he aware of the Pentacle Memo,Project Stork, or the alleged disinfo campaign against Paul Bennewitz?

Perhaps new information or final answers to these questions can be found in the latest volume of Hynek’s protégé’s personal memoirs, Forbidden Science – Volume Three by Jacques Vallee … “Journals of personal research written from 1980 to 1989 by a French-born astronomer and computer scientist interested in UFOs and paranormal phenomena.”

hynek-ufo-report
The Anomaly Archives has several copies of Hynek’s two most famous UFO books (pictured above) and we hope to distribute some of those soon at various existing Free-Mini-Libraries Across Austin. We also plan on launching our own Little Free Library pods around town and quite possibly our own Mini-Mobile-Library – both of which have become so popular again.
