Subject: UFOs/ETs and Monsters


Just had a week or two of ad-hoc revision - re-reading complete works of Fort, three of Vallee's, three of Keel's, one from Redfern, Barton Nunnelley's `Inhumanoids' and even Patrick Harpur's `Daemonic Reality' (too Jungian for me). Plus a re-look at Don Wilson's examination of the Moon and its possible real history.

Bearing in mind Barton's dictum - that even one or two well-witnessed and accepted cases linking UFO/ET with Bigfoot/Sasquatch are enough to connect the two types, probably along with all `Monster' cases - am inclined to reassess ALL those cases, also remembering David Paulides' `Missing 411' series.

`Each month, somewhere on this planet, a monster appears briefly. It leaves huge footprints behind. Then it vanishes. For a short while it was real, a physical entity seen by one person, or ten, or one hundred, and then it ceased to be. These monsters take many forms and have been observed by millions of people over the past several thousand years.'
John A Keel

Maybe a majority of them seem to have one or more `supernatural' aspects - i.e. levitation, invisibility, disappearing into thin air, luminous eyes, winged flying humanoids, hybrids of humans and animals etc.

As a result I've been forced to re-examine all those accounts of the Greys' interests in human genetics - and maybe come to a joint conclusion!

Ray

PS - Human witnesses of UFO and Monster events often suffer `sunburn', `pink-eye', rashes and sleep problems - while Monsters and many UFOnauts have `body-odour': they leave a stink of sulfur/rotten-eggs or worse smells.

David Paulides Bigfoot and Missing 411Missing 411 - Hunters:
Unexplained Disappearances by David Paulides is one of the most fascinating - and creepy - books I've ever read, and I think a lot of you in the reading audience, especially hunters, would be interested in reading it as well.

Published earlier this year, this 348-page book details nearly 150 unusual cases of hunters who have gone missing across the country over the years, the vast majority of which vanished without a trace and whose bodies have never been recovered.

In his book, Paulides, an investigative journalist who has spent much of his career investigating missing people, doesn't detail just regular, run-of-mill missing hunter cases. Instead, every case in the book meets certain unusual criteria, including cases where search dogs can't find a scent, cases involving unusual weather, cases near locations where others have gone missing, cases were the victim is found in an area previously searched, cases involving bodies of water and cases involving hunters with disabilities or illnesses.

Subject: Re: World Disappearances - Ethnic and/or Ability Choices?


Hi Ray, I think I have given some thought on this too, namely that there is something about the white people of this world which is a subject of interest to some "quarters" out there - now we know that the western race is the newest of humanity's evolution which is now known to be 13,000 years only, think what they got to do with ancient Sumeria as UFO is concerned.

So if "they want" to they might just consider the white race as a gene pool for some reasons or that to them could be a "genetic carrier" to some purposes that they consider their right to do what they like with this "chosen race"and then back on earth literally speaking.

World Disappearances - Ethnic and/or Ability Choices?

Interesting.
(BTW - David is the most convincing researcher and presenter I've seen on Youtube).

Early on he presents the `incident map' which eventually grew to include N America, UK and Australia, NZ.

He'd already said the victims tend to be either part-disabled OR highly qualified and extremely fit people!

Which raises an interesting question: are `victims' being selected by ethnic and/or ability criteria?

More on Glassy Forts

Recalling those `glassy forts' (w/vitrified outer walls) in Scotland and around Europe;  was just now reading John Mitchell's second book on `ley lines' (where he says the ley lines of Britain are almost identical to China's `Dragon Lines'), and found a surprising addition to the `vitrified rocks' mystery.

On p. 208 he mentions a `long barrow' (often called a `passage grave' but I doubt that theory) near Maughold, Isle of Man, with an innermost chamber which has had its rock lining vitrified, just like the _outer_ walls of the `glassy forts'!

Which contradicts both `offensive weapon' and `defensive cover' theories for that "impossible" vitrification.

Am still reading John Anthony West's `The Case For Astrology' - a very thorough and scholarly examination of evidence for/against classical astrology.  I.e. he's NOT talking about pop-astrology and NOT about newspapers' media simplified zodiac-astrology.

I'm about 3/4 thru and now into the evidence FOR; beginning with the Gauquelin's (husband + wife) discovery of a `Mars Effect', using statistical analysis.

Warning: there are differing schools of thought, even within `Classical Astrology' (i.e. like that used by Ronald Reagan's astrologer Joan Quigley.)

Here's a few `confirmation' items which embarrassed the BBC (which was determined to condemn astrology as `superstition')

David Paulides - "cold-hearted perpetrators"

If you watch David Paulides' "Missing 411" presentations, given around the world, you'll know he refuses to speculate as to the identity of the `entities' responsible for the weird circumstances surrounding abductions fitting his "Missing 411" template:

i.e. unexplainable disappearance; no scent-trail for search dogs; impossible distance between abduction/reappearance (alive or dead); total amnesia in all live victims; apparent mind-control by abductor; (some) missing clothing/almost always missing shoes; when found dead no `cause of death' and evidence the body was `elsewhere' for a week or more; (+ some other more complex factors).

You'll see that any putative abductor had to have super-human strength and super-human mental and physical (teleporting-carrying) powers - and a complete disregard for human physical welfare, especially that of young children.

However, although David won't speculate about the perpetrator's identity, what he DOES DO is read out H. P. Lovecraft's conclusion about Cosmic reality:

"The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island in the midst of black seas of infinity and it was not meant that we should voyage far. Some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age."

Which to me hints that David is beginning to share the suspicions of Jacques Vallee (in "Passport to Magonia") and John A Keel (in "Operation Trojan Horse"): i.e. that we share this planet with various powerful (and invisible) entities with unpredictable motives - and cold hearts!

I am in the middle of this video.  It said even K9 can't sniff their trails which is impossible as they do travel some distances before something happen to them.  This sounds like they are being "picked up" or teleported right from where they stand and later on being teleported back to the area.

First Charles Fort - now David Paulides

Reading Fort's "Wild Talents" and among the confusing list a striking case leapt out which could have come directly from David Paulides' "Missing 411" files (of the more tragic ones at least).

At Brest, about 1st of May 1922 a farmer's 12 year old daughter - Pauline Picard - went missing.  On May 26th a cyclist passing by the farm saw something in a field, not far from the road.  It was Pauline's decomposing body, decapitated and with hands and feet amputated.  Her clothes were "neatly folded" nearby.

Much earlier, April 6 1922, Pauline had disappeared for a few days and had been found wandering the streets of Cherbourg, about 230 miles away, in a state of total amnesia - didn't recognize her parents, who had no idea of how she'd gotten there on foot without being noticed on the way.

The salient points : young person missing - unexplained absence `somewhere' for some weeks - reappearance in an easily noticeable spot - unclothed (or missing shoes at least) - if found conscious "can't remember anything" - all those are characteristic of David Paulides' classic "missing young people, some found dead" cases from modern times.

Subject: Charles Fort and the "Maya"


Charles Fort and the "Maya"

Reading Charles Fort's collected works and just got as far as `New Lands' when I found an interesting comment - among many of his interesting ideas.

In Chap.30, after reviewing many apparent abductions and maybe even acts of `genocide' in the ancient past (by `visitors' to Earth), he suddenly says "And what happened to the Mayans?".

He had a point, maybe more than he knew.  The naive view of the Maya is outlined here - as a group of incoming conquerors from Europe / Mediterranean.

However, a check of _all_ the "Mayan" images tells another story.  It seems there was a succession of changing ethnic groups ruling as "Maya" - but all seem to've been various Caucasian types.

And a look at the surviving Lacandón Indians (often called "Maya" by the ignorant) seems to say that all those other conquerors also disappeared!

https://www.ancient-code.com/scientist-concludes-millions-years-ago-advanced-alien-race-existed-mars/
Scientist concludes, Millions of years ago, an advanced alien race existed on Mars

"... based on new data, evidence that during this period of Earth-like climate, biological evolution produced, at length, a humanoid civilization leaving ruins at several sites, Cydonia Mensa and Galaxias Chaos being two sites most intensively investigated. Data from these sites formed the basis for the Cydonian Hypothesis (Brandenburg, DiPietro, and Molenaar, 1991) of an ancient, indigenous, approximately Bronze Age civilization on Mars."

"Mars xenon is found to match closely the component in the Earth's atmosphere produced by Earth's nuclear weapons programs, both hydrogen bomb testing, and plutonium production, both of which involve large amounts of fission with fast neutrons. It is found that Mars xenon can be approximated by a mixture of 70% Nuclear Testing xenon, mixed with 30% natural Earth xenon, suggesting that Mars xenon was similar to Earth's before a large nuclear event altered it dramatically."

Mars is unlike any other celestial body in our solar system. Since time immemorial, the red planet has captured the imagination and interest of people around the globe, from the time of the Aztec, Inca, and Mayan empires, to modern society and the 21st century.

But what is about Mars that makes us want to understand everything about it? Are we interested in Mars because we think there could be life there? Are we so interested in the red planet because there is a possibility that an advanced civilization may have flourished there once?

Subject: Re: Brad Steiger's "Real Ghosts ...

Hi Choong
glad you mentioned those points.  Most folk commenting on UFO events, for example, can't explain UFO interference with gasolene car motors, electric power distribution (and the workings of the human brain) - because an electromagnetic power large enough would grossly deform metal structures - like cars or power-generators - and maybe kill humans.

BUT if the effect is in the inertial field (which affects the movement and speed of any body of mass, from electrons up) that would explain ALL those effects, including the _impossible_ deviation of gyroscopic compasses (which can't be affected by magnetism).


[For `inertial field' explanation, see an embedded video of Dr Richard Haines receiving a UFO report from a Capt. Daniels (airline pilot) at http://www.perceptions.couk.com/metamail101.html#ufo-det
OR here

[or see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXR_9tIKo1U#t=2m49s for video alone]]


As for the human brains, if the electrons in one's brain were slowed down (or accelerated) significantly, that would explain the distortions of `reality' experienced by close contact witnesses (and maybe the sometimes permanent character changes many suffer).

Hi Ray, now that you are mentioning it actually I've been watching spooky things for days now, one common denominator for this phenomena is that while it is happening these spirits can actually effect electronics devices like CCTV or TV sets, since that nowadays most TVs are LCD panels, I have seen one video when the LCD TV of the victim seems to be able to do vertical fold whenever the ghost appear, as a former electronics repairman I think this is something because LCD TV circuitry is different from old days CRT TVs in which they don't have horizontal or vertical deflection coil inside and the problem of temporary "vertical collapse" technically cannot happen and as for their effects on CCTVs or camcorders static interference is the norms so for these spooky things, they are dimensional and electromagnetism is involved here, its a sign that things related to an energy driven portal here but there is the catch.

Posted on Aug.10, 2018 in classification, Dept of Energy by Steven Aftergood

Classified Human Subjects Research Continues at DOE
A dozen classified programs that involved research on human subjects were underway last year at the Department of Energy.

Human subjects research refers broadly to the collection of scientific data from human subjects. This could involve physical procedures that are performed on the subjects, or simply interviews and other forms of interaction with them.

Little information is publicly available about the latest DOE programs, most of which have opaque, non-descriptive names such as Tristan, Idaho Bailiff and Moose Drool. But a list of the classified programs was released this week under the Freedom of Information Act.

Human subjects research erupted into national controversy 25 years ago with reporting by Eileen Welsome of the Albuquerque Tribune on human radiation experiments that had been conducted by the Atomic Energy Commission, many of which were performed without the consent of the subjects. A presidential advisory committee was convened to document the record and to recommend appropriate policy responses.

In 2016, the Department of Energy issued updated guidelines on human subjects research, which included a requirement to produce a listing of all classified projects involving human subjects. It is that listing that has now been released.

"Research using human subjects provides important medical and scientific benefits to individuals and to society. The need for this research does not, however, outweigh the need to protect individual rights and interests," according to the 2016 DOE guidance on protection of human subjects in classified research.

An extravagantly horrific example of fictional human subject research was imagined by Lindsay Anderson in his 1973 film O Lucky Man! which captured the zeitgeist for a moment.

Subject: Vitrified Forts Of Europe


Vitrified Forts Of Europe

Thanks to FB and AncientCode.com for reminding me of one of the true scientific mysteries of archeology which is still in front of our noses - and no-one understands how it came about.

These `vitrified forts' exist in Scotland and also scattered all around Europe; that overall `glassy' effect cannot be reproduced even today.

Some say only a sustained plasma blast from a futuristic nuclear powered weapon (which does not yet exist) could give the temperatures and coverage needed to melt faces of the walls of a fortress made from rocks.

This mystery is on a par with the ancient radioactive sites in India - which do exist but are regularly subject to dis-information campaigns from "debunkers" (it seems western governments are willing to pay - with our tax money - for willing liars or `trolls' to create lots of misinformation as "noise" on various subjects: you can maybe guess some of those subjects).

See list of Gov't trolling evidence here.

The Mystery Of Vitrified Fortresses Of Europe, An Unexplained Geological Anomaly

Europe, the Old Continent is known for its amazing history, Medieval times, and stunning fortresses and monarchies.

Between 700 and 300 BC, a large number of forts were built in Scotland, many of them on top of hills, with walls made of stones piled together without the use of mortar.

This at first may not seem like anything out of the ordinary, as of course, there are plenty of such structures across the world, and not just in Europe.

However, the entire story changes completely going from ordinary to extraordinary upon close examination which reveals that many of the stones that make up the walls of these ancient fortresses are fused together. Some of the areas of the forts were converted into a kind of glass, featuring the remains of what was without doubt air bubbles and drops of molten rock which are evidence that the stones were once subjected to temperatures that led to a vitrification process.

Not a single scholar has been able to explain how this is possible.

Therefore, during the last three centuries, archaeologists have tried to answer the questions surrounding the mysterious Scottish fortresses.

One of the first British geologists to describe these mysterious structures and the mystery behind them was John Williams, author of Natural History of the Mineral Kingdom.

It was he who first described the mystery in 1777 after looking at a few strange ruins, of which later more than a hundred examples have been found throughout Europe, mainly in Scotland.

So, who built them? How did they manage to vitrify the stone? And what sort of technology was used? And is it possible that we do not see the entire picture?

Too many questions and no answers at all.

These structures were given the name of vitrified forts. These structures have amazed geologists for centuries because there is no scientific explanation for how the rocks fused.

The temperatures at which they had to be submitted for vitrification occur are comparable to the detonation of an atomic bomb, say some experts.

But what is interesting is the fact that there aren't one or two vitrified structures, but hundreds of examples spread across Europe, with 70 forts existing in Scotland.

As the first vitrified structures were discovered in Scotland, it was thought that they were exclusive to Scotland, the most famous being Dun Mac Sniachan, Benderloch, Craig Phadraig, Ord Hill, Dun Deardail, Knock Farril, Dun Creich, Finavon, Barryhill, Laws, Dun Gall, Anwoth, Tap or O'Nort.

However, examples of similar structures have been found in Bohemia, Silesia, Thuringia, in the provinces of the Rhine, in Hungary, Turkey, Iran, Portugal, France, and Sweden, among others.

What is strange is that the vitrification is not total in all the forts, nor is it homogeneous in the walls of the same sites. Experts have found that in some cases the stones appear partially calcined and fused, while in others they are covered by a layer of vitreous enamel, and sometimes, although rarely, the entire length of the wall presents a solid mass of a vitreous substance.

Nobody knows how these walls came to be vitrified.

Some scholars believe that it was intentional, to strengthen the defenses of the forts, but in reality, this would have weakened them, so it is unlikely that this was their intention.

Experts also say that the vitrification was unlikely to be the result of war damage, as the result of a siege, because in order to reach vitrification, the fires must have remained burning for days at a temperature between 1050 and 1235 degrees Celsius, something that is extremely improbable, although not impossible.

Some theories point to the possibility that the vitrification of the first may have been the product of deliberate destruction either by attackers after the capture of the forts or by their occupants as a ritual act.

The dating of the forts across Europe covers a wide range of dates.

A view of the vitrified fortress of Tap o'North, Scotland. Image Credit: Pinterest
The oldest forts are believed to have been built during the Iron Age, but there are also those many forts with similar characteristics dating from the Roman era, while the last corresponds to the Middle Ages.

Recent studies suggest that they were created by massive plasma events such as solar flares.

These occur when the ionized gas in the atmosphere takes the form of gigantic electric bursts, which can melt and vitrify rocks.

In the 1930s archaeologists, Vere Gordon Childe and Wallace Thorneycroft conducted an experiment with a gigantic fire directed towards a stone wall, an experiment that was repeated in 1980 by the archaeologist Ian Ralston.

In both cases, the experiments produced the partial vitrification of some of the stones, but they failed to explain how it could have been produced on such a large scale as in the vitrified forts.

In the absence of a definitive theory or conclusive evidence, the vitrified forts of Europe continue to be one of the strangest geological and archaeological anomalies in the world, eluding explanation for centuries.

Partway thru David pays a compliment to his friend George Knapp, and coincidentally am presently reading `Hunt for the Skinwalker', authored by George Knapp (journalist) and Colm Kelleher (scientist), a presentation of the investigation of the `Skinwalker Ranch' by the National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDSci) founded by Robert Bigelow.

Like David I'm impressed by the scientific approach of the Skinwalker investigation, which took quite a few years to complete - without any `hard and fast' conclusion despite the scientists witnessing many hair-raising events .

As Paulides always says: `Don't blame Coincidence - that's when you can't see the Connecting Forces'.

So hope to be still here tomorrow!

Cheers

PS - a propos of David's "Missing 411" work, I used to hike and climb mountains a lot, usually alone, although sometimes had one or two dogs with me, and only found a few spooky places, usually near or below groves of old trees.

Hi Choong,
right, I used to drive around this area quite a bit and didn't ever see owls in villages or towns.

However, only a few hundred yards away from traffic you'd be able to see an occasional Little Owl or larger Tawny Owl in trees or on a barn roof.

And sometimes, when driving late at night would get a shock as a huge ghostly white Barn Owl would swoop low over the road ahead.

"Birdsong"
The other night I was woken by an unfamiliar sound - an owl hooting.  This was about 4 o'clock in the morning.  And the owl-hoots came closer over next few minutes.

Now I _was_ used to the sound of owls in my previous location (heavily wooded area), but about twenty years ago moved west to a site near a main road and didn't hear owls at night anymore.

Even so, maybe because there are woods close-by, still get a dawn-chorus, dominated by wood-pigeons or ring-necked doves from about 5'ish, and in the season can hear wood-peckers during the day.

Cheers

PS - 29 July - this is about a week after I'd heard that owl hooting near my place.  Tonight I happened to click on a Youtube video which turned out to be about OWLS and UFOS.  Won't say any more - leave it up to you.

Owls and UFO Contact
Ozark Mountain Publishing
Published on 7 Jun 2018
The owl has held a place of reverence and mystique throughout history. And as strange as this might seem, owls are also showing up in conjunction with the UFO experience.

Mike Clelland has collected a wealth of first-hand accounts in which owls manifest in the highly-charged moments that surround alien contact. There is a strangeness to these accounts that defy simple explanations. His book The Messengers explores implications that go far beyond what more conservative researchers would dare consider. But the owl connection encompasses more than the UFO experience.

It also includes profound synchronicities, ancient archetypes, dreams, shamanistic experiences, personal transformation, and death. From the mythic legends of our ancient past to the first-hand accounts of the UFO abductee, owls are playing some vital role.

This is also a deeply personal story. It is an odyssey of self-discovery as the author grapples with his own owl and UFO encounters. What plays out is a story of transformation with the owl at the heart of this journey.
