DIRECTIONS to The Anomaly Archives

It’s a little tricky to find the first time, so here are the directions:

If you’re heading northwest on Research/183 from I-35, Mopac or 360, exit 183 at the Oak Knoll exit, pass through the light at Oak Knoll, and stay on the access road heading north. The next side street off the 183 access road will be Technology Blvd; do not turn on Technology. Immediately after you pass Technology, there will be a driveway on your right (the only one in that area) — Exit into that driveway. There will be a sign overhead for “Forest Plaza.” After you pull in, you’ll have no choice but to go to the left into Forest Plaza. Our building is the back left building within the complex — Suite 302. If you’re heading south on Research/183, you also exit at Oak Knoll, but take the u-turn just before you get to Oak Knoll, get over the right on the northbound access road, and prepare to make the right immediately after Technology Blvd. as in the directions above.

July Meeting Report

 

Saturday, July 28th a few of us met for the monthly Anomaly Archives meeting. We had a good time discussing a wide range of weird Central Texas news stories as well as watching some new UFO sighting videos, and brief videos covering the physics of information, UFO Contact and more.

We reminded our attendees that our Anomaly Archives Meetup.com account will be going away August 1st. We are sad to close this aspect of our social media presence but have had to do so due to budget issues. Folks interested in staying in the loop on all things related to the Anomaly Archives can subscribe to this newsletter in several ways:

  • – Towards the top of the left-hand sidebar is place where you can input your email address and be subscribed to the website and get updates via email. You will get a confirmation email in which there will be a link for you to affirm that you want to subscribe.

 

 

The first news story we watched and discussed was “Experts explain Chupacabra sighting in Cedar Park” about a photographer who captured pics of what authorities assure us are coyotes with mange. We talked about the research discussed by past Anomaly Archive event lecturer Jonathon Downes who came from England to work with Richie and Naomi West researching the wide range of “Texas Blue Dog” sightings around the state – some of which have yielded DNA results which challenge mainstream assumptions that these are simply mange-riddled canines and coyotes.

Then Miles Lewis spoke briefly about his visit to Newport, Rhode Island for day-job related conference. While there he visited Touro Park in the center of town where “the old stone mill” (also known as the Newport Mystery Tower) is located. He had the pleasant experience of meeting Jim Egan who runs the Newport Tower Museum across the street from the park and who has a rather different theory for the origin of the tower. Some people believe it was built by Vikings, others believe it was built by Templars or early Portuguese explorers. Jim Egan believes it owes its origins to John Dee, consultant to Queen Elizabeth I. We watched the shortest introduction to Mr. Egan’s hypothesis which is a six minute video found at his website: Newport Tower Museum.

Attendees then watched a short news report from local KEYE-TV about a herd of cattle at an Elgin ranch just outside Austin which mysteriously died apparently from eating hybrid grass which had begun producing cyanide: “Cattle Deaths Still Baffle Scientists.”

We then briefly discussed the rise in alternative news coverage of the mysterious Men-In-Black phenomenon, obviously in anticipation of the recently released third installment of the MIB movie franchise. We watched a brief classic episode of Unsolved Mysteries which featured Austin’s own MIB-experiencer Ray Muniz.

Miles asked attendees if they knew about UFO researcher Jacques Vallee’s recent presentation to the Ted-X Talks in Brussels: A Theory of Everything (Else). This lecture was not about UFOs per se but rather about Vallee’s desire to work towards a “physics of information” that might explain the many synchronistic aspects of UFO encounters and related paranormal phenomena. A couple of specific events Vallee mentioned in his brief lecture were expounded upon by Miles and the other meeting attendees. These specific events led Miles into a discussion of the recent Aurora, Colorado mass-shooting.

Miles gave some background on his experience regarding mass-shootings; he is a survivor of the 1979 Fiesta – Battle of the Flowers parade shooting which occurred in San Antonio when he was eight years old. He briefly described his memory of the event and his belief that it was his mother’s intuition that kept them from becoming the two fatalities which occurred that day. Miles discussed cryptozoologist Loren Coleman’s other areas of expertise the “Copycat Effect” (aka “Werther Effect”) and Mr. Coleman’s recent writings about the Aurora shootings which he has described as a significant shift and “Red Dawn” event. Miles told attendees about the bizarre coincidence surrounding the first identified victim of the Aurora shooting, Jessica Redfield, who had just survived another mass-shooting the month previous and the even stranger circumstance of her witnessing a bizarre person dressed as Batman at that previous shooting.

We also briefly discussed the continual blurring of the line between fact and fiction by UFO researchers from George Filer’s cooperation with the Majestic ARG (Alternate Reality Game) back in 2001 to the more recent incidents of Stanton Friedman shilling for the “Blair-Witch-Project on the Moon” horror film Apollo-18, Richard Dolan’s recent calling-out of Nick Pope on his spreading misinformation about possible alien invasion during the Olympics on behalf of some game designer as well as Robbie Graham of SilverScreenSaucers blog speculating that former CIA man Chase Brandon’s “Roswell Revelations” likely having more to do with promoting his fictional works rather than real UFO truths. You can read a review of Chase Brandon’s fiction by Shepherd Johnson at the SilverScreenSaucers blog. [More from Matthew Alford.]

We concluded the meeting by watching one of the DVD extras from David Cherniak’s 2011 EBE Award Winning documentary, in the Best Feature Film category, UFOs – The Secret History. This particular DVD extra was 45 minutes long and leads into a 2 hour and 25 minutes DVD extra that is likely equally valuable to discerning historians interested in UFO lore.

Well, until next time, we hope you’ll explore the links below for even more anomalous news…

 

Anomalous Headlines

 

Off The Charts Level Synchronicity?!?  Jessica Gawahi “Redfield”Twitter: @JessicaRedfield

 

The Batman Sighting in Toronto –

It’s all so very strange, like something out of the Twilight Zone. Jessica Redfield Gawhi experiences a “feeling” and leaves the food court at the Eaton Center right before the shootings. Then, afterwards, tweets about a man wearing a Batman costume (see screen capture below). Then a month later she is killed in a movie theater while watching a Batman movie … @JessicaRedfield, June 2: “A man dressed as BATMAN is charging tourists to take pictures outside the Eaton Center yelling “MY PARENTS ARE DEAD!” Very tacky & heartless.”

posted by Mack White at 10:33 PM 

“Red Dawn” Societal Shift Event?!?

  • Copycat Effect / Twilight (Zone) LanguageJuly 19th Loren Coleman emails link to his 3rd Bane/Bain article saying, “Watch the next 36 hours!!”Early the next morning he was awakened by what he thought was someone calling his name. He got up and checked the news and discovered the Midnight Movie Massacre had occurred.

 

  • Synchromystic Threads“It is always darkest just before the day dawneth.” – English theologian and historian Thomas Fuller (1608 – 1661)
    Harvey Dent: “The night is darkest just before the dawn. And I promise you, the dawn is coming.” 
    ~ The Dark Knight (2008) (Video referral: RPJ/Miguel)

    The name Aurora means “dawn.” The Roman goddess of the dawn was named Aurora, and her siblings are Sol (Sun) and Luna (Moon). These names in Latin and Greek are Aurora/Eos, Sol/Helios, Luna/Selene.

    Anne Hathaway/Catwoman’s public persona character in The Dark Knight Rises is named Selene Kyle (Selene = Moon, Kyle = Strait of Water/River).

    Aurora is an extremely popular name in Norway, being the 16th most used in 2006.

     Aurora is a suburb less than 10 miles east of downtown Denver. Aurora originated in the 1880s as the town of Fletcher, taking its name from Denver businessman Donald Fletcher, who saw it as a real estate opportunity. He and his partners staked out four square miles east of Denver, but the town – and Colorado – struggled mightily after the Silver Crash of 1893. At that point Fletcher skipped town, leaving the community with a huge water debt. Inhabitants decided to rename the town Aurora in 1907, after one of the subdivisions composing the town.
    Coloradois of Spanish origin, meaning “colored red” and “ruddy.”

    The memories of Columbine (20 miles away from Aurora) are being recalled by the Colorado and other media….  The suspect’s name translates as James = “he who supplants,” Eagan = “fiery,” and Holmes = “holly” and/or “island in the river.” +++ Personal Note Why am I up this early, as Willie Geist often asks, specifically reporting on this event? Well, I was startled from my sleep, at 4:27 am Eastern, on this morning of July 20th, by what sounded like someone calling my name; I literally thought there was a person in my bedroom. Then I checked the news and heard about the Aurora shooting. I have never had such a startling awakening. Yes, I am open to Forteana, but I do not consider myself involved in psychic phenomena, per se, so this was an unusual personal incident for me.

Greetings everyone. We apologize for the long delay in getting this eNewsletter out to you.

This edition of the eNewsletter contains a report on last month’s meetup discussions and videos watched, as well as news of the first Annual Women’s UFO Conference right here in Texas, plus a ton of Anomalous Headlines, information on our next monthly meetup and more!

MONTHLY MEETINGS!

The Anomaly Archives holds monthly meetings on the Fourth Saturday of most months. The meetings are held from 1-5pm on the fourth Saturday at the INACS / Anomaly Archives headquarters located in North West Austin just past the intersections of Research and Technology Boulevards (see bottom of email for detailed directions):

This month’s meeting will be one week early, on Saturday, April 21st with a viewing of the second live online Alternate Universe i-Conference:

 

Anomaly Archives monthly meeting report for March 24th 2012

At last month’s (March) Anomaly Archives meeting we had some great discussions on a wide range of topics, from talk of ufo whistleblowers to channeling to what books we’ve been reading. We also watched some interesting videos. More on the videos (with links) at the end of this brief meeting report for now here is more about the conversations we had.

At the beginning of the meeting we continued a discussion we’ve been having about the merits of people like UFO “Whistleblower” Robert O. Dean. For more background on the interesting story of Bob Dean and the alleged 1964 SHAPE Ufo Assessment document check out these links. This first one from an interview in mid-1996:

Here is a brief assessment of Bob Dean (and others claiming insider information) from long-time down-to-earth UFO investigator and Roswell crash believer Kevin Randle:

And here is SHAPE Historian Greg Pedlow’s analysis of Dean and the alleged UFO assessment document claims:

Meeting attendees talked about Dolores Cannon and Channeling in general, though Dolores clarifies that her messages come through the use of hypnosis. One person mentioned that they are currently reading one her books. Here are some introductory videos about Dolores:

We also discussed the Trickster element within various UFO and paranormal encounters as well as deceased persons appearing in alien abductions / CE3Ks / NDEs, etc.

Of course David Icke’s ideas about reptilian’s was raised and we talked about precedents in shamanism and resonant speculative hypothesis suggested by alien abduction researcher Karla Turner in this 1994 interview at the Annual Mufon Conference which was that year held in Austin, Texas. Here are links to that interview:

From The (old) Archives: Karla Turner – Anomalous Abductee Experiences

Mike DeGroff reminded the attendees about an intriguing plan proposed by NUFORC’s (National UFO Reporting Center) Peter Davenport. It is his passive radar plan, first proposed back in 2004.

From the “Coast to Coast AM” Newsletter COASTZONE Weekend Edition for March 19, 2012:

UFO Detection: In the latter half, Director of the National UFO Reporting Center, Peter Davenport, discussed his revolutionary proposal ( PDF file) for detecting UFOs in near-Earth environment, out to a distance of around 250,000 miles. The plan calls for using a passive radar system in which signals could be analyzed to determine a target’s size, location, and other details. For example, such a system would be particularly useful in identifying craft that are in our atmosphere, doing 20,000 mph, and making sudden right turns, he said. This detection data could be shared with scientists for analysis, and eliminate the need for government disclosure, which doesn’t appear to be forthcoming, he commented. Davenport said he is seeking funding for this project– around $750,0000 is needed to set up a prototype of the passive radar system operating station (much of that cost would go toward developing the software for analyzing the intercepted signals). Ultimately, he foresees a kind of webcam system in which all the UFO detection information would be available on one public website in real time. He also talked about his UFO Hotline, which recently has received reports of spherical fireball-type objects

PDF link: http://www.dat-e-baseonline.com/front/a.asp?arg=8F7D995F927D7A64606B737A628B73798C6A706E867C736B

Here is the introduction to the paper presented at the 2004 Annual Mufon Symposium in Denver:

USING MULTISTATIC PASSIVE RADAR FOR REAL-TIME DETECTION OF UFO’S IN THE NEAR-EARTH ENVIRONMENT

Copyright 2004 Peter B. Davenport All rights reserved. Author: Peter B. Davenport Director, National UFO Reporting Center Seattle, Washington

ABSTRACT: The author proposes a system for the remote, real-time detection of UFO’s in the near- Earth environment, using passive, multi-static, frequency-modulated (FM) radar. The system capitalizes on the use of multiple, time-synchronized radio receivers to capture high-frequency radio signals reflected from a target. The time-lapse between received signals, together with three-dimensional Doppler-shift analysis, permits calculation of a target’s location, velocity, acceleration, flight path, and other parameters, possibly to include target size estimation. Signal analysis of the reflected signal, combined with analysis of target characteristics, will permit discrimination between suspected UFO’s, and targets of terrestrial origin, e.g. aircraft, satellites, space debris, meteor trails, upper atmospheric conditions, weather phenomena, migratory birds, the Moon, etc.. One application proposed may allow detection of UFO’s out to a range of at least 27,600 kilometers from the Earth’s surface.

Here is some background on similar ideas noted on the UFO UpDates eList:

Of course, this sort of instrumented approach reminds us of Austin’s own, Ray Stanford and his PSI (Project Starlight International) research efforts:

My Dad, the UFO Hunter http://www.tikaro.com/2008/01/my-dad-the-ufo-hunter.html

UFO-VECTOR SYSTEM: Communicate with UFOs by transmitting signals along a joystick-guided laser. http://www.nicap.org/madar/psi-mpic.htm

RECORDING MAGNETOMETER: Track and record moving ferrous objects (see comments for correction from Ray) magnetic fields overhead. It’s pictured below — check out the tape drive! And the big capacitors!

Other tech articles are on the main PSI tech page here. http://www.nicap.org/madar/psi.htm

From a February, 1976 “Texas Monthly” article:

“The laser [seen in the background] can provide a video readout of the UFO for the PSI people as well as transmit information to the spacecraft. The pan-and-tilt head can be moved up and down and sideways simultaneously by means of the remote-control “joystick,” but it still takes the skill of an anti-aircraft gunner to strike the UFO with the laser beam.”

For much of the middle of the meeting we each briefly talked about what we have been reading? Some of the titles and authors mentioned included Jim Mars’ RULE BY SECRECY, Tom Campbell’s MY BIG T.O.E. as well as the books of Dolores Cannon. Also mentioned were Bob Frissell, Paul Smith’s READING THE ENEMIES MIND (about the military’s Remote Viewing). We also talked about Smith’s documenting of the military’s Dowsing programs. Miles spoke about reading Jenny Randles’ book PARANORMAL PENINES.

The SERPO Saga was raised and a brief talk ensued about the merits or lack thereof regarding the whole sordid affair. Mike DeGroff mentioned it’s having caught his attention because of the inclusion in the story of a sighting that sounded strikingly similar to the famous Lonnie Zamora sighting. Here are some investigations by various groups into the strange story of SERPO:

 

Among the many other information items discussed at the March meeting were…

The weird story from a couple years ago of Eisenhower’s grand daughter:

 

Ancient Aliens episode on Rendlesham and the mysterious 1001010111010101001001 message:

  • Ancient Aliens – Rendlesham Binary Code Revealed – edited

An attendee mentioned some striking footage they remember and we’d like to look at. They described it as being from Mexico and of a cloud-cigar type ufo disgorging smaller orbs. If you think you know more about this video or have a link to it online please let us know.

Miles had brought a number of long, medium and short length videos for the group to watch. He mentioned several feature length UFO documentaries that the group might want to watch but ultimately we chose to watch a sampling of shorter length videos including:

Laredo UFO Conference videos…

Open Minds TV’s coverage of the IUFOC including…

  • 2011 Year-in-Review

FLASBHACK: Nick Pope and MSM on Triangular UFO Videos in Ireland… Miles spoke briefly about his ANOMALY Magazine website and articles being cited on this MSNBC news video and how they got the story completely wrong, confusing two different incidents of bad-jacketing of an alleged ufo sighting with other known footage not related at all to the new sighting. Here is the MSNBC video with Nick Pope – whom Miles communicated with about this case. Here also are the articles alluded to in the video:

  • Nick Pope and MSM on Triangular UFO Videos in Ireland

We also talked briefly about these great documentaries … UFOS: THE SECRET HISTORY, OUT OF THE BLUE, and BEST EVIDENCE: TOP 10 UFO CASES.

Miles mentioned that we have videos featuring SRI/URI GELLER and Ed Mitchell Quantum Hologram and RV.

We watched Disclosure Madness animation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q76cxfcNK-M

Miles mentioned one of his favorite weird close encounter cases from the early days of flying saucers. He played an old recording of Close Encounter witness Joe Simonton where he describes the pancakes the occupants gave him: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u9Ih8jH3J88

We watched a brief local news piece about Austin’s Museum of the Weird: http://austin.ynn.com/content/community/local_wonders/283318/local-wonders—museum-of-the-weird http://www.museumoftheweird.com

Lastly, before wrapping up after a long and interesting meeting, we watched the preview for recent interview of  musician Billy Corgan by Austin’s Alex Jones from during the recent SXSW media festival. Below are links to the sneak peak and the full interview:

“Recent” Events:

Firstly, I’d like to apologize for the lack of communications over the past several months. Organizing the Summer Flying Saucer Cinema Series and the Nick Redfern lecture left me (SMiles Lewis) quite tired. Then just a couple days into September I had a sudden health issue rear its head. Add to that an attack by an apparently Algerian hacker who took down nearly every website (over 40 different domain names) on the servers hosting the Anomaly Archives website.

Anyway, “Onward and Upward!”

Nick Redfern talked about his new book

Contactees: A History of Alien-Human Interaction

This was our second biggest event to date. Our biggest event by far also featured Nick Redfern. Back in 2005, the Anomaly Archives hosted (with the kind support of Rob Riggs) an incredibly informative event called the Texas Ghost Lights Conference which also featured lectures by UK “Earth Lights” researcher Paul Devereux, Marfa Lights researcher James Bunnell and bigfoot/ghost-lights researcher Rob Riggs.

Thanks to everyone who came out and for all those who donated to support the Anomaly Archives and future SAI events.

UpComing Events …  Monsters of Texas

Coming up early next year (January or February) the Anomaly Archives will be hosting a free lecture by Texan Cryptozoologist Ken Gerhard. His talk with likely cover all the amazing cryptozoo-critters he has searched for across the state, as documented in the book he co-wrote with Nick Redfern, Monsters of Texas.

Stay tuned for details on this upcoming Anomaly Archives Event…

Mirage Men by Mark Pilkington

Reviewed by Nick Redfern

Mark Pilkington’s Mirage Men is – I don’t exaggerate in saying – one of the most important UFO-themed books you’ll ever read. That is, if you dare to read the book, and don’t shy away from it because it might upset and unbalance your carefully constructed, nice and neat Ufological world.

Whether you are a full-on true-believer in the Extraterrestrial Hypothesis (ETH), wholly open-minded on what lies at the heart of the UFO puzzle, a skeptic, or a rabid debunker, you should not ignore Mirage Men. Of course, your views on what lies at the heart of the UFO phenomenon – and which of the above-categories you fall into – will play a large role in determining your response and reaction to Mark’s book.

Those for whom Ufology is a modern-day religion, and one that offers a form of cosmic comfort, will be shocked, angered and perhaps even disillusioned by what they read. Doubtless, too, there will be a degree of hostility and outright denial on their part when faced with the crumbling of certain much-cherished belief-systems, ideas and (possibly) certain cases that have become classics within Ufology.

Besides focusing on researchers we also like to highlight the specific research efforts of good researchers who add something new to the field of anomalous inquiry. Keith Chester is just such a researcher, adding a great deal of new primary research concerning the mysterious “Foo Fightings” and other anomalous aerial phenomena witnessed and documented before during and after WWII by our nation’s military men and women.

– Anomaly Archives News

– Feature

“In early October of 2009 I was contacted by an associate producer for the online webisode series “Streets of Fear” who was wanting to know if I knew anything paranormal or mysterious about Convict Hill Road here in Austin, Texas. The online series is part of the horror lineup of programming offered at Fear Net dot com that focuses on ultra brief media bytes exploring stories of American streets with really spooky names, such as Bloody Pond, White Wolf, Dark Hollow, Widow Susan, Beelzebub, Gore Orphanage, Hell Hollow, Shades of Death, Gallows Hill, Purgatory, Spook Rock, Burnt Church, Witches Rock, Bloods Point, Tombstone Canyon, Mount Misery, Extraterrestrial Highway, and Bloody Spring. They had contacted me after finding my friend James Bankston whose article in the Oak Hill Gazette had gotten their attention.”

Contactees: A History of Alien-Human Interaction

We are not alone…and Nick Redfern can prove it.

Contactees contains the fascinating stories of the select group of people chosen by visitors to Earth to spread their message. Are aliens really among us? Don’t be too quick to dismiss their claims.

Truman Bethurum was divorced by his wife because she believed he was having close encounters of a very personal kind with a beautiful extraterrestrial “space captain” named Aura Rhanes. Is he nuts? Prescient? An omen?

A band of eerily human-looking, blond-haired aliens–later known as the Space-Brothers–informed other contactees that they were concerned by our warlike ways and wished us to live in peace with one another. Acting on the advice of the Space-Brothers, contactees such as George Van Tassel and George Adamski went out and spread the extraterrestrial word to anyone and everyone who would listen. And many did, including U.S. government agencies.

More than half a century later, the contactees are still among us, still telling their tales of personal alien encounters, and still maintaining their cult-like status in the world of UFOlogy. Nick Redfern’s Contactees relates their thought-provoking, lluminating, controversial, and sometimes bizarre stories in all their appropriately out-of-this-world glory.

– Collections / Donations

A friend whom I first met many years ago at our local Austin Mufon meetings has donated about six boxes of books which will likely amount to over 100 hundred new volumes to the Anomaly Archives collection as well as a stack of classic flying saucer and science magazinees and news-clippings from the early part of the Modern UFO Era.
Among the many noteworthing items spotted so far during our initial cataloging session have been these interesting finds:

The Big Book of Conspiracies

In the past, I would roll my rapidly glazing eyes whenever I heard some formerly sensible person carrying the cudgels of conspiracy theories: you know the rants: the Trilateral Commission, CIA, FBI, Masons, and Secret Societies are all out to run the world and silence truth seekers with intimidation, death–or plankton up the nostrils–and it seems the body formerly inhabited by a friend is ready to board a ship to the moon. But then I came across this book, and I was stunned at the volume of detail and even facts that have been amassed by the obsessive believers in these seemingly wacko conspiracy theories. The most disturbing fact is that people investigating conspiracy theories seem to have the highest death rate of any profession — other than shark dentists.

The editors adopt a sensible attitude: they do not claim that any interpretations in the book are necessarily true, but rather that these are truly things that conspiracy theorists have proposed. Note that this is a comic book of 39 tellings of almost as many conspiracy theories, but the comic-book medium in fact works very well. Recommended, unless some gruff voice calls me late at night and tells me to change my mind…. (Pssst: from the same people who brought you another Amazon.com Books favorite, The Big Book of Weirdos). –Jonathan Kochmer

– Welcome our New Trustees to the Board of Directors

Late last year two new trustees were voted on to the board of directors for the Scientific Anomaly Institute. Here is a little background information on both Jeremy Wells and Craig York.

Jeremy Wells (left), Board Member – Jeremy D. Wells is an Austin, TX based writer, editor, and researcher. Jeremy grew up in rural eastern, Kentucky, within day trip distance of Point Pleasant, WV (home of the fabled Mothman), Peebles, OH (location of the Serpent Mound), and the haunted Moonville train tunnel in Vinton County, OH. He grew up surrounded by stories of these mysteries, black panther sightings, and his grandparent’s haunted house, fueling an early interest in the paranormal. After studying history at Shawnee State University and working as a journalist and editor for various small town newspapers Jeremy’s interest evolved from attempts at proving or disproving strange phenomenon to the history of Forteana, trends across various phenomenon and ages, and the study of why individuals interpret this unknown phenomenon in the manner that they do.

Jeremy currently works as a freelance writer, editor, and training specialist in the video game industry and serves as a researcher and field investigator with the Texas Bigfoot Research Conservancy.

Craig York (right), Board Member – I have been interested in the paranormal generally since discovering Ivan Sanderson’s Investigating the Unexplained when I was still a pre-teen. In the forty and some odd years since, I have amassed a modest library of ghost lore, mainly collections of regional ghost stories, and crytozoological material. I have sculpted a few “Crypto” subjects, and maintain an active hobby life. In addition to these activities, I am an amateur actor, and have enjoyed a number of successful performances with the local Theater troupe, The Violet Crown Radio Players. Long a passive spectator of paranormal investigation, I hope to take a more active role in the years ahead.

HQ vrsn: www.psiopradio.com/media/2010/POR100221a.mp3

Skylaire Alfvegren has worked on cars for the Mexican mafia and roped cattle on the border of Area 51. Having witnessed her first UFO alongside Air Force personnel as a child, she began her writing career at seventeen with “File o’ the Damned,” a column of Fortean investigation for Fizz Magazine.

Not yet of legal drinking age, she was hired as a consultant for Strange Universe, the Fox Network’s nationally-syndicated “paranormal news program,” wrote regularly for the L.A. Weekly and built a laboratory to grow amanita muscaria.

Translated into nine languages and plastered helter skelter online, her gonzo reportage has appeared in countless magazines, books and journals. Descended from the Dark Elves of old Scandanavia, she is currently applying her vast knowledge of California – the esoteric, the dark, and the weird – to the small screen; and recently founded the League Of Western Fortean Intermediatists (L.O.W.F.I.).

The Passing of Giants: John Keel and Richard Hall

strange_creatures_from_timekeeljohnkeeljohnkeelseighthtower

Thanks to my friend Dr. Steven Mizrach for the following tribute…

Tribute to John Keel by Steven Mizrach

www.fiu.edu/~mizrachs

If I were to say there were two people who most influenced my thinking on the UFO subject, it would be Jacques Vallee and John Keel. So much so I even wrote both of them letters of congratulation at one point.

They were of course very different in their approaches and backgrounds (one a French rationalist, the other an American adventure writer), and yet I would argue seemed to be concurring on five critical points.

1. That “the phenomenon” might be “ultra-terrestrial,” i.e. not so much originating from other planets, but possibly other dimensions of existence. That in fact it wasn’t really coming from “somewhere else” so much as something parallel to “here”. Maybe around us all the time but not normally apprehensible to our senses? Keel sometimes liked to say “the phenomenon is much a part of our planet as the weather”.

2. That “the phenomenon” had historical roots deeper than 1947. The “flying saucer” era may have begun with Kenneth Arnold in 1947, but things that were called different things in earlier epochs, such as Mystery Airships, or Foo Fighters, or Ghost Rockets, or just Strange Stuff in the Sky, might have been earlier manifestations. In fact, Keel was so adamant on this that he devoted himself to debunking the “Roswell” obsession of many of his peers, insisting that the Roswell incident was a Japanese fugu bomb balloon.

3. That “the phenomenon” seemed to respond to peoples’ beliefs. Keel always cautioned people that “Belief is the Enemy”. Certainly, it’s generally a good admonition in general, given the damage dogmatism, fanaticism, and fundamentalism cause, in general. But Keel was speaking about what seemed to be its “adaptive” nature, that it molded itself to peoples’ expectations. Vallee suggested the same thing, except I think he leaned more generally to the “Magonia” school that peoples’ perceptions were molded by their culture, which is why medieval people seeing the same thing as modern people called it angels, whereas we call it spaceships.

Basically, I would say that, each essentially said, be careful in approaching the subject with too many a priori expectations, beliefs, and assumptions. Which again, if you think about it, is good general advice.

4. That one should be cautious of the UFOlogical “establishment”. Keel in response to my letter to him sent one of his pamphlets lampooning the “UFO people”. He said they had a diet too heavy in science fiction and everything was always being force-clawed into alien technology explanations. They should look more at the history of religious apparitions, mythology, faeries, and folklore and realize they weren’t dealing with something new. Vallee often said the same thing. So did Carl Jung, way back in the 50s.

5. That the phenomenon was part of something that could be considered a “control system”. Of course, I was always fascinated most of all by this subject. “Control” for what purpose? Forteans have always danced around this subject ever since Charles Fort opined in his tomes “We are property”. Vallee hinted that the control was more or less benevolent, perhaps for the betterment of our evolution. Keel was always more pessimistic. He saw manipulation. I think he was at his most ascerbic in books like Disneyland of the Gods or the Eighth Tower. Keel liked to discuss how the ancient gods seemed to manipulate human beings, pretty much treat us like cattle, serfs, puppets. He didn’t see the situation improving now that our new gods were the Ashtar Command and the Space Brothers.

I had always loved Keel’s book The Mothman Prophecies. I can’t really say why. Maybe Mothman was just a figment of peoples’ imagination, or just some undiscovered cryptid. But there was too much else WEIRD going on in Point Pleasant, a “high strangeness” for a year or so that went beyond a mere cryptid invasion. Indrid Cold, whatever/whoever he was, was no cryptid. He also didn’t seem like a man from outer space, either. Maybe he was a god, or a spirit, or a daeva, or something else, but as Keel often commented, he seemed trapped by fate, by time, in a different way from us (since he didn’t seem to live in linear time), but still. Not unlike what the Buddha once said about the Hindu gods.

When the movie Mothman Prophecies came out, I expected to be disappointed. I really did not think a Hollywood film could capture the “feel” of the book. And although I thought the film did some fascinating things with regard to poetic license (like splitting Keel into two persons, the naive John Keel played by Buddhist Richard Gere who must be “initiated” by Alexander Leek (Keel backwards) to understand it all), I actually felt in many ways it did. Particularly with regard to the nature of Indrid Cold.

“Alexander Leek” in that movie gives an explanation of how Keel saw “ultra-terrestrials” like Indrid Cold in a very chilling, captivating way. “Leek” tells “Keel” (Gere) that beings like Cold might well be able to see the future, because they aren’t exactly in the same space-time continuum as us. However, that doesn’t make them omnipotent, or omniscient, far from it. Like “Leek” explains — perhaps a window washer on the 14th floor of a building can see a car crash blocks away that we can’t. He knows things before we do, because he has a “higher” or better vantage point. (That view always made me think of the hyperspheres in the novel Flatland.) However, that doesn’t mean he can see everywhere, or everywhen. It hardly makes the window washer worthy of believing everything he says, just because his vantage point is a bit improved.

But more importantly, Keel also felt that beings like “Cold” didn’t strike him as necessarily being benevolent or honest. Keel often commented on how Swedenborg told other spiritualists to dialogue with the spirits, but not to trust everything they said, just because they were dead. Because, frankly, said Swedenborg, for whatever reasons of their own, they frequently lied. Keel seemed to hint that beings like “Cold” might use their slightly better vantage point to manipulate us and he frequently hinted about how various “contactees” were inevitably “used” by such beings.

The bottom line is, Keel’s fundamental message was one of skepticism, or zeteticism, if you prefer. That when being led down the garden path by the latest channeled alien intelligence du jour, as an American politician once said, “trust, but verify”.

I think that’s a good adage to live by, whether it’s all tosh in general, or like Keel, you suspect that “U.T.”s don’t necessarily have to have our best interests at heart.

Goodbye John Keel. I understand you died lonely and isolated, but that’s the way many prophets in their own country and Cassandras have to die. In the movie Mothman Prophecies, Laura Linney tells your alter ego Richard Gere that his wife Debra Messing may be on the other side, but “wherever she is, I bet she’s nowhere near Indrid Cold.” I hope the same is true of you.
