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.”

The Anomaly Archives Weekly Email Newsletter

March 15th, 2016 – Welcome to another great weekly edition of the newsletter…

Our Book-Of-The-Week is back and this issue’s selection is a personal favorite of mine. In the 1990s, when I was knee-deep in anomalous fringe-culture, I had come across the works of the nasally-voiced Terence McKenna through the psychedelic rave video Alien Dreamtime (by Ken Adams). I’d read an article or two by or about Terence but it was always something else to actually hear him speak. Years later I’d read this week’s Book-Of-The-Week selection, but I still remember coming across the trippy audio version of the book about he and his brothers adventures in the Amazon; where they were looking for the Spirit-Vine, Ayahuasca, but instead found the alien mushroom. It’s a fantastic tale and the audio version is filled with rain-forest noises and zany sound effects. Be sure to check out the links to digital scans of that book as well as streamable “Talking Book” versions.

As usual, we have a treasure trove of anomalousHEADLINES linked to articles of note from the past few weeks. Here in Austin, Texas we are in the midst of the annual Traffic-Jam known as SXSW. One of the few blessings during these Ides of March is the fact that it coincides with Spring Break, and so the incoming hordes are slightly off-set by the absent school aged kids and their parents clogging the roads. But there are always interesting things afoot during this “South By So What” season, and this year is no different. As a survivor of a mass shooting (The day madness went on paradeSan Antonio Express / DANGER: Parade of Mother’s Intuition by SMiles Lewis) I’m very interested in seeing the latest documentary about Austin’s infamous 1966 UT Tower Shooting. It’s getting good reviews and the clips I’ve seen look very well-done and respectful. I’ve met at least one of the survivors featured in the film and he, like me and others, have grave concerns about the upcoming synchronicity of the… Texas campus carry law will take effect on 50th anniversary of Charles Whitman shooting at UT(MySanAntonio.com). You can hear me talk about the 1979 San Antonio shooting in this archive of the March 11th, 2008 episode of my PsiOp-Radio show… starts at about the 48-50 minute mark within the MP3 archive.

Also in our HEADLINES section … Satanic Panics and rumors of ritual child abuse. At last month’s public meeting there was a lot of talk about tales of elite parapolitical pedophile trafficking and abuse networks. Human trafficking and child abuse are things we KNOW occur. Allegations of SRA (Satanic Ritual Abuse) have rightly been characterized as failures of law enforcement through bad interviewing techniques used with the alleged child-victims and witch-hunt-like round-ups of the accused. Hundreds of convictions from the 1980s have been overturned and it does appear that many of these cases were not actual examples of abuse. Yet we know of far too many other cases where the abuse was real, was ritualized, was part of a network trafficking in children and young adults. Among the threads discussed during last month’s meeting was the infamous case of “The Finders” (What is the Finders Cult?Stuff They Don’t Want You To Know – HowStuffWorks YouTube Video). In 2008 I interviewed Len Bracken, one of the few people to ever actually meet with and interview the head of “The Finders.” We spoke briefly about what he found; you can hear that interview at this link: Blue Rose Report interviews Len Bracken (mp3). Well Austin has its own historic case of an overturned SRA scenario and we’ve got links to theAustin Chronicle‘s multiple issues, articles and video covering the shattered lives of the falsely accused / wrongly convicted.

Book of the Week…

True Hallucinations:

Being an Account of the Author’s Extraordinary Adventures in the Devil’s Paradise
By Terence McKenna

This Publishers Weekly review pretty much sums it up:

In 1971 ethnobotanist McKenna (The Archaic Revival), his brother Dennis and three friends boated to a town in Amazonian Colombia, seeking a hallucinogenic plant that enables the Witoto tribe to talk to elf-like “little men.” In psychedelicized ravings interspersed with diary excerpts, McKenna records their experiences after ingesting mind-altering mushrooms and other psychoactive plants.

A flying saucer slowly flew over McKenna’s head; he calls it a “holographic mirage” of a future technology. Dennis had a revelation about a “psychofluid” that pervades the universe. McKenna flashes forward to Hawaii in 1975 where mantis-like creatures from hyperspace attack his lover, and flashes back to his tantric lovemaking in Tibet and to Indonesia where unrepentant Nazi scientists tried to recruit him in 1970. He posits the existence of a particle of time, the chronon, which conditions matter. A bizarre book.

The Anomaly Archives Weekly Email Newsletter

March 8th, 2016 – With so many explorers taking the final journey lately, it can be difficult just continuing. I’m so thankful for all the friends and family I have who are still here with me, with us, as we continue moving forward through spacetime.

This week’s newsletter was particularly difficult… I’ve been meaning for some time to mention the passing last year of “Texas ParaCryptozoologist” Rob Riggs. I’d known him since late 2001, early 2002, after I became aware of his book In the Big Thicket: On the Trail of the Wild Man. We went on an overnight expedition together into the wilds along the Sabine River with fellow Texas bigfoot seeker, Chester Moore. I’d see Rob speak of his alternative perspectives at various Texas Bigfoot conferences and host him and friends in my living room, interviewing him for a feature article in the Austin Para Times newspaper I was editing. When Rob was managing the local Natural Awakenings magazine, he sponsored the Anomaly Archives’ biggest ever event, the Texas Ghost Lights Conference featuring me as Master of Ceremonies, plus speakers including Rob, Nick Redfern, Paul Devereux, and James Bunnell. The last time I saw Rob was at his July 2014 presentation to the Anomaly Archives. Then last November, I got word that he’d passed away. I was asked to speak at his memorial and I did. I told his friends and family about my experiences with him, about how his research was received by fellow bigfoot seekers, told them about his support of the Anomaly Archives and about our strange experience on the Sabine River with Chester Moore. I also heard many wonderful stories from his numerous friends and spiritual seekers. It was a truly moving memorial for a man who dared to ask about possibilities. You can read more about him and his legacy at the links below. At that link you can also find photos of the the text of his last book, Bigfoot: Exploring the Myth & Discovering the Truth, for pages 100-103 wherein Rob relates the trip we took on the Sabine River with Chester… when the engine synchronistically cut-out after repeated mentioning of ‘El Diablo.’

. . . . .

Sadly, Rob was but one of many losses to the Cryptozoology Community this past year or so. You can find many excellent memorials to those other fine researchers as chronicled by researcher Loren Coleman at his CryptoZooNewsand Twilight Language websites in our “Leaving a Legacy” section below.

. . . . .


SouthPop.org

Meanwhile, there has been yet another passing of someone whom I and others found inspirational, right here in Austin, Texas: local artist and “Unofficial Mayor of South Austin” Henry Gonzalez. I met Henry and his wife Leea several years ago when my then girlfriend (now my wife) was working with them on the non-profit that they had founded. South Pop (South Austin Popular Culture Center) “collects, conserves, and exhibits vintage posters and live music ephemera from the 1960s through today to educate future generations on the rich and unique culture that makes Austin the Live Music Capital of the World.” In 2010 I became better friends with Henry and Leea as they helped me host a fun science-fiction pop-culture film-series outdoors at the South Pop facility on South Lamar. We launched the Summer Flying Saucer Cinema Series 2010, projecting such SciFi classics as Quatermass & the Pit, aka Five Million Years to Earth!Invaders from Mars, and Starship Invasions. Henry lived an amazing and inspirational life. “Primarily known for his murals and outdoor art installations… he was part of the Armadillo Art Squad at the legendary Armadillo World Headquarter… spent time as the stage manager for the Austin Opera House and for the AFM free concert series… [and] on the road with touring bands” [including on Stevie Ray Vaughan’s final tour]. Portrait of Henry Gonzales by Kerry Awn

Just as we’ve been chronicling the passing of giants in our field of study, so too had Henry Gonzalez been chronicling the passing of Austin’s giants in the fields of art, music, and popular culture. One of his many achievements was “maintaining a vast altar to Austin’s departed musicians and artists. No one deserves placement on that wall more than Henry Gonzalez.”

You can read more about Henry in the “Leaving a Legacy” section below, online at our Anomaly Archives page, and in this article (Playback: The Mayor’s Plan to Save Austin Music Mayor – Steve Adler addresses the elephant in the club, Susan Antone honored, and Henry Gonzalez goes to the head of the Austin poster artist altar) by Kevin Curtin, in the March 4th edition of the Austin Chronicle(Volume 35, Number 27 – e-edition | pdf).

In lieu of our usual Book-of-the-Week, we’ve got a brief article by researcherScott Corralles reflecting on his interactions with rare book seller and independent publisher Bob Girard. Scott is the editor of Inexplicata – The Journal of Hispanic Ufology and corresponded with Bob for several years. After you readScott’s article you can read other past memorials and reflections about Mr. Girard at our Anomaly Archives website including our Bob Girard Collection page, searchable Catalog, Clas Svahn’s farewell to Bob Girard, and The Legacy of Bob Girard – An Interview with SMiles Lewis.

. . . . .

As with each issue of our weekly newsletter, we have a wealth of News Headlines from around the globe.

Among those which particularly caught our attention and imagination this week were yet another in a long series of “strange” teaching exercises that have been enacted repeatedly at schools in England. In my 2013 lecture, The Fantastic Facts About UFOs, Altered States of Consciousness, and Mind-at-Large – UFOs & Consciousness: Part Two, I mentioned that there had been at least nine such events like this between 2008 and 2013 in which the Department for Children, Schools and Families had employed staged scenarios involving UFO crashes, alien abductions of teachers, a bloody crime scene, and even a terrifying World War 3 simulation involving sirens, videos of global catastrophe, and fireworks. Well they are at it again… check out the link in the Headlines section below.


Meanwhile, a recent article from RoadTrippers.com highlights the “hidden gems” at the Capitol Reef National Park. This reminded me of the last “Kook Out” that my friends and fellow para-seekers, writers, and researchers from the old 1990s zine scene went on back in 2003. We converged in Capitol Reef National Park and had a wonderful time hiking and sight-seeing. As always with these gatherings, we told weird stories around the campfire and enjoyed each others’ company. In the spirit of that trip I include a picture of myself below in which I am posing in front of one of the barricaded uranium mines, complete with radioactive warning sign.

Legacy

Remembering those who’ve inspired us…

Henry Gonzalez (Austin Artist) –

“Quien con la esperanza vive, alegre muere.
He who lives with hope dies happy.

With much sadness in our hearts we mourn the passing of SouthPop founder and father, Henry Gonzalez. The unoffical mayor of South Austin, Henry was the keeper and sharer of the stories that make Austin great. His artwork stands as a testament to his creativity, ingenuity, vibrant spirit, and colorful personality. But all the words in the world cannot illustrate his light and enthusiasm.”  – SouthPop.org

Charles Robert Riggs (Para-Cryptozoology Researcher)

Rob authored In the Big Thicket: On the Trail of the Wild Man, published by Paraview Press in 2001. I worked with editor Patrick Huyghe and Rob, proofreading, helping out, and reviewing Rob’s book. My review talked of how much I admired his work. I wrote: ”Rob Riggs’s new book takes the reader on a wild tour through one of America’s weirdest wonderlands. Riggs has produced a great collection on such mysterious Texan wonders as the Marfa and Bragg Road ghost lights, and the Big Thicket’s Wild Man, including one delightfully named Ol’ Mossyback. A shamanistic journey.”

Rob also co-wrote Weird Texas (with Wesley Treat and Heather Shade) published by Sterling Press, in 2005, and Bigfoot: Exploring the Myth & Discovering the Truth(with Tom Burnette) from Llewellyn Publications, in 2014.”

Loren Coleman, The International Cryptozoology Museum & CryptoZooNews.com

“Loren Coleman’s special appreciation of his fellow cryptozoologists and hominologists has made him the source of biographical insights, and his obituaries and living commentaries on the leaders of the field have been published widely. National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered,” for example, called on Coleman to speak in tribute of Dr. Grover Krantz who died on Valentine’s Day, 2002.”

Recent coverage of Para-Cryptozoo-Passings…


Scott Corrales on Bob Girard

It was hard to miss the ads for Arcturus Books in the early days, when I took my first steps into the pool of ufology. Overwhelmed with information as I was, I never thought to contact them or get a copy of their catalogue: magazines, ‘zines, newsletters and bulletin board postings (remember the long-gone days of BBS?) provided a dizzying mix of information where abduction claims, tales of underground bases and straight-out conspiracy theory shared the cramped pages like passengers on a subway train during rush hour.

It was much later that Joan Jeffers – a devoted Pennsylvanian researcher of UFO and related phenomena – told me to get a hold of Bob Girard, saying he could find any book or periodical I might remember from the early days of sauceriana, or even material from other countries. Oddly enough, I was sort of in touch with Bob already. His former partner, the late Ron Bonds, had set up Illuminet Press expressing an interest in publishing my translation of Salvador Freixedo’s “Visionaries, mystics and contactees”, a great introduction to the Spanish Jesuit’s vast body of work on the paranormal. Bob’s wife Monica provided the cover art for the project, so when I picked up the phone to call Arcturus, no introduction was really necessary.

Book of the Week:
Time-Life’s Mysteries of the Unknown (series)

image

“The Mysteries of the Unknown phenomenon began in 1987 when Time-Life Books began to test the waters for a series of books on the paranormal. Time-Life Books, a conglomeration of the two titular magazines, sold books via monthly subscriptions. Their series and titles usually focused on broad historical or utilitarian subjects like The Old West or Home Repair and Improvement, and were mainly sold directly to the consumer via television ads that blanketed the cable and broadcast airwaves. They were the kinds of books one’s dad or grandparents might buy.

Even within Time-Life, the series was nicknamed, “books as furniture,” says Tom Corry, former Product Manager for Time-Life Books, who helped develop the paranormal series and the ad campaign that saw it take off. According to Corry, who is now CEO of his own company, Healthcare Data Insights & Analytics, the roots of the Mysteries series are actually pretty mundane. “We already had a book series called the Enchanted World, and it was elves and fairies,” he says. “It was a pretty popular series.” Having found an audience for these books, Time-Life decided to see what other left-field topics readers might be interested in.”

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.”

“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.

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

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JBx0Wi9bG6I[/youtube]

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…

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AR9bkG1xaVg[/youtube]

Open Minds TV’s coverage of the IUFOC including…

  • 2012 UFO Congress Researcher of the Year Lee Speigel

  • 2011 Year-in-Review

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOt2vpbap6I[/youtube]

 

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

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jm2kY0RK9Fs[/youtube]

 

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:

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…

So much anomalous news to cover… below you’ll find links to headlines including the “hoax” about the United Nations supposedly appointing someone to be Earth’s ambassador to ETs, the much anticipated Robert Hasting / Robert Salas UFO-Nukes press conference, more cases of UK schools hoaxing alien landings to stimulate critical-thinking and writing exercises for the young students, media-induced UFO sighting frenzies over New York City, El Paso and elsewhere across the United States, claims of an alleged whistleblower detailing a supposed military base underneath Dulce, New Mexico, renewed rumors of Project Blue Beam, tons of articles about UFOs as tools of military disinfo, loads of science links detailing the ever increasing evidence for alien life outside earth as well as news of earth-like planets discovered fairly “closeby” to our galactic neighborhood, plus parapsychology, cryptozoology headlines and much much more!

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.
