Hallmarks of Intelligence

If you flew over an area of remote islands in the ocean, and you saw a spiral pattern on one of the supposedly deserted beaches; you would likely reach the conclusion that someone made it and perhaps land your plane if suspected that the person who made it was still there. 


When we instead turn out megalithic telescopes to the cosmos, our reactions aren't as curiously inclined; even though many of the formations we behold do come in the shape of spirals.

Our means to interact with the areas of interest are obviously limited, but nevertheless associations to intelligence are left out. 

Strangely so, seeing as order is the opposite of chaos. 

A stone circle made by humans. 

 
Fibonacci spirals in nature.

The highest form of intelligence that we are able to prove, is our own.

A defining trait of ours is the willingness to create; to manifest structures where there previously weren't any. 

We polish gemstones, think up mathematical systems, build buildings etc., we always leave our mark behind.

That's why we look for geometric shapes when we search for old archaeological sites.

The remains of an ancient Amazonian civilization.

From atoms to galaxies, we find intricate patterns of regularity. Patterns which we would hold for pieces of art, had we only created them ourselves. 

Instead we are stuck right in between these, to our own perception, extremely foreign objects and subsequently are left standing rather dumbfounded. 

Intelligence of the highest order has to have the physical mass of this and this many kilograms, because our futile measurements has made the human being our only reference point. 

We are now living in a paradigm that in many ways is unique in how it arrogantly proclaims it's validness, seeing us as the crown jewel in an otherwise dead and meaningless ocean. 

Not stopping for a second to ask the question of how something can manifest in the universe that is more advanced than universe itself.

Micro: A snow flake through an electron microscope.

Medium: A beehive. The hexagonal shape is prevalent in both structures, yet we are only (hesitantly) willing to apply the word intelligence to the latter. 

Richard Dawkins spent many years making a computer simulation, with the explicit purpose of showing how factors of chance and diversity dictates biological evolution. 

Somehow this struck me as being highly contradictory seeing as he himself played the role of the Creator he has dedicated his life to spitefully deny.

The simulation may run very well on it's own, but as is also the case with reality, the outcome is determined by a set amount of parameters – the underlying structure of information that makes sure that the mass of a proton always will be 1836,15 times greater than an electron.

Macro: The hexagon on Saturn's North pole. 


Of course we run into a problem when we try to project a persona to the mind behind the properties of the cosmos, it's certainly no Dawkins behind a laptop. But if we would allow ourselves to let go of the presupposed notion that an intelligence has to be confined to the cage of a (physical) being, the problem quickly dissolves.



Why not grant us this freedom?

Water on Mars, 'Ceres'iously?

Earlier this week NASA made it sound like the news of the century when they announced that liquid water had been found on Mars. Here's a few thoughts that's been occupying my mind following that supposed "impact".


Please note: not any circumstances! 

For most people this might indeed be a landmark discovery, seemingly unthinkable just a couple of weeks ago. But this discovery was heavily suggested by two different sources 15 years ago, using basically the same type of technique, drawing the same conclusions. I'm talking about a report by Richard C. Hoagland from 2000 and a paper by Efrain Palermo published in 2001.


Pictures concluded to show liquid water on Mars - 15 years ago.  

Of course, anyone with a pair of powerful binoculars could've seen that Mars has two poles, whereas one of them consists of water ice, thus heavily implying that where that pole ceases and desert takes over, some liquid water probably is to be found.

Anyhow, let's pretend that NASA knew about this before hand (at least Ridley Scott did), why would they chose to proclaim it now? As it turns out the timing is suitable as the premiere for the movie The Martian is just around the corner - a movie that NASA has spent much time and money on, as it turns out.


Timing is everything. 

As futile of an announcement as it might seem for many of us who are aware of the world of alternative space research, it shouldn't come as a surprise.

If we look at NASA's history with the red planet, we know for a fact that they deliberately destroyed potential fossilized, organic lifeforms and blatantly been lying to and deceiving us regarding possible artificial structures.

 Ah, what an interesting find! Let's take a closer look... oops!

Looking at it from a wider perspective, this do fit with the notion that they indeed are heading for disclosure. If you've followed the Dawn Mission to Ceres you should be familiar with the inexplicable lights which has been discovered on the dwarf planet's surface.

Earlier this year the mystery got a great deal of attention in media all around the world, and NASA even started a poll in which we could all guess as to what was behind the luminescent phenomenon. Is it ice, geyser's, rock or something else?

Hmm, a geyser perhaps?

I'm no expert but I can already tell you that we're are not dealing with rocks here. Of course the really detailed pictures has yet to emerge (God knows they have them), but in the meantime let's see how open we are for the unknown.

By the way, they did release pictures of the bright spots being seen even when the planet was turned away from the sun. Effectively eliminating all poll alternatives except for 'other'. So far the agency hasn't bothered with a follow up comment to the pictures, save for this.


Little by little it looks like they're preparing us for the startling reality: we are not alone, and we've never been alone.

The question is: can you handle it? or rather, is there really anybody out there who can't?

The Implications of the UFO Phenomenon (II)

Picture yourself the following scenario:

It's a beautiful summer afternoon and you and a few friends are out in the garden enjoying a barbecue. As the sun is starting to set one of you spots a strange object in the sky, at first none of you is making too much of a fuzz about it, but as it gets closer you all realize that something's not right. First of all it's not making any sound and when it suddenly stops as it gets right above you, it becomes evident that the thing is huge, approximately 300 meters in diameter. You continue to observe how the craft is rotating counter clockwise as pulsating white lights emanates from it. After a couple of minutes it suddenly splits up into four separate crafts, taking off with immense speed in the four cardinal directions: north, south, west and east respectively. 

This story actually represents what a witness claims happened to her and a group of friends on a spring evening in 1976. The first hand report is posted on NUFORC, and was brought to my attention through Richard Dolan's book UFO's for the 21st Century Mind*. Whatever the origin of the observed object, it is probably safe to assume that it didn't run on gasoline, but rather something more sophisticated. Something clean and tremendously more effective.

The Game Changer


What the consequences would be for humanity if this kind of technology became available in some way or another, depends heavily upon the circumstances of which it would be obtained. If it was revealed to us on a grand mainstream scale, we're likely talking about a great positive transformation, which would eliminate the petroleum industry over night, and in a very foreseeable future, poverty as well - given that we are talking about free energy.

Is a clean, green future within our grasp?

However, if the information was only to be harvested by a smaller, controlled portion of humanity, it's not as likely to benefit the masses, but would instead lead to the creation of a separate elite group - a scenario which might very well be reality, as we shall see.

I believe there are several ways for the later to occur, one brilliant mind in the wrong (or right, depending on how you look at it) place at the wrong time would be enough. For example: there exist a rumor that Nikola Tesla's apartment was raided shortly after his death and that a huge portion of his private notes disappeared. If those papers contained enough crucial data I believe they definitively could've gotten the the ball rolling**.

Richard Dolan has often times speculated that UFO crash retrievals are very potent candidates in this regard, and I agree. There are many cases of suspected UFO crashes, but for familiarity's sake let's use Roswell as an example in this thought experiment***.

Phase 1


The year is 1947 and the world is still shaken from the after math of WW2: millions of lives have been lost, cities have been turned to dust and the two most powerful nations on Earth are busy with a new ordeal which will be known as the Cold War.

As if this wasn't enough, in comes a report describing how an exotic craft of some kind have crashed in the very vicinity of where the first atomic bombs were produced and tested. The media is already all over it and witnesses are lining up to give interviews of what they saw. - "... Mr. President?"



Looking back at the historical context the decision to momentarily put the lid on the affair is perfectly understandable. Not only were they spared from the surrounding world's countless questions, which they probably weren't able to answer anyway, but it also gave them an opportunity to study the new found treasures in peace and quiet.

The wreckage is transported to a secret military location as the PR department makes sure the official story changes course to something of a more mundane nature. Even though some of the brightest brains of the time are working on the project, it likely takes years before anything substantial can be reproduced from it. Perhaps a few of the discoveries deliberately get leaked through industrial channels, as Lt. Philip J. Corso suggested in his book The Day after Roswell, stuff like fiber optics, Kevlar and laser. Some findings stay secret.

As the years go by the project is likely to be phased out to the private sector, where the money, security and know-how are far superior.

Phase 2


One day a break through is made, the scientists involved actually figure out the principle behind the craft's gravitational shielding, and it turns out that the very same principle can be used in a way that lets you use the Earth's magnetic field as a hyper effective energy source for travelling. The profane effect this discovery would have on humanity, if it was to be disclosed, is not underestimated.


This video from Nellis Test Range (Groom Lake/Area 51) was leaked in the mid-90's. The footage is authentic and assumably portrays one of our own crafts, developed by T. Townsend Brown's Electrogravitics (?). Please note the striking resemblance to the recently leaked Homeland Security footage from  earlier this month.  


They keep it under wraps. Now imagine if something similar took place say 60 years ago, where would this research be today? Would it be far-fetched to talk about time travel or worm hole-type of commutation? Could they already be visiting other planets or even star systems? 

In all cases, we are dealing with a technological level so far off from anything that's out in the public that the selected group of people who have it to their disposal must be seen as a unique branch of human civilization. A breakaway group that have a unique access to Earth and the solar system, a refined infra-structure both on and off planet and most certainly a cosmological understanding that gives them a more sophisticated viewpoint as to the nature of this world.****

The former head of Skunk Works' Ben Rich posing in front of a F-117A Nighthawk.

A lot of speculation perhaps, but as it turns out there are more to this than most suspect. For example a number of prominent people in key positions have gone on record with sensitive information highly suggestive of exactly this, namely: Leonard StringfieldBarry GoldwaterDr. Robert SarbacherDr. Eric Walker, Don Phillips and Ben Rich, the head of Lockheed's Skunk Works-division 1975-91, who at the end of his life made some remarkable statements such as:

“We already have the means to travel among the stars, but these technologies are locked up in black projects, and it would take an act of God to ever get them out to benefit humanity. Anything you can imagine, we already know how to do.” 
- Ben Rich

Regardless of the truth, I'm wildly intrigued by the thought that there might exist a part of humanity that recently in our history took a step into a new, revolutionary paradigm. When it all comes down to it, there are people in the Amazon that are unknowing of our civilization, and who's to say that we are on the very far end of the spectrum? Unfortunately we have to wait for the day they decide to disclose themselves before we can know for sure.

May that day come soon.

The implications of the UFO-phenomenon (I)

One of my greatest reading experiences last year was Richard Dolan's UFO’s for the 21st Century Mind. The book works as a historical summary of the whole phenomenon: from ancient astronauts to the most popular clips on YouTube, and absolutely everything in between. It's easy to see that a great deal of solid research went into this publication and even if I consider myself fairly well versed when it comes to the history of UFOs, the accessible language and pleasant layout made it a joy to acquaint and re-acquaint myself with all the people, cases and events that constitute the vibrant world of this particular topic.

Instead of writing a mere review of it I would like to address two key questions that Dolan touches upon, both of which I find important, intriguing and highly relevant to us, particularly in these times. In this post (part I) I will try my best to convey what I think is the single most important notion that the UFO-phenomenon entails; one that should always be with us but is too often forgotten.

--

The total amount of witness reports concerning unidentified aerial phenomena throughout our history is immense. Every year over 10 000 observations are being documented through various organizations in North America alone*. Of course most of them are miss-identifications of man-made or natural objects; but that small percentage of bizarre and mystifying experiences reported by both civilian and governmental/military channels never ceases to exist.

Reports describing intelligently maneuvered crafts slicing through the sky in zickzack patterns, doing thousands of km/h, pulsating in glorious colors without making a sound - often times affecting electronic equipment, moving in and out of water with ease, containing passengers not entirely human looking. What are we suppose to make of reports of this kind?

Perhaps not too much. It's enough to apply basic rational thinking in order to realize that we are dealing with something absolutely real here, the sheer amount of credible sightings speaks for itself. Taking into account other kinds of documentation like physical traces, radar readings and a wealth of photos and videos, there can be little room for doubt that these intelligent units, in some sense, also share our immediate reality.

James Nichols interpretation of a UFO-incident in Puerto Rico 1988. Many witnesses continued to observe how the craft split up in two triangular parts which disappeared with tremendous speed.

Yet, everyone, skeptics and believers alike, can't let go of the vacuous idea that something tangible and reproducible is necessary in order to completely convince; as if a piece of film, body tissue or an exotic rod would possibly make any difference. Not to mention the extent of foul play that's been associated with our approach to the phenomenon from the very get-go. On behalf of the visitors, let's not forget the obvious reluctance to provide us with such as well.

--

Mystery is the common denominator. The essence of the play.

Seeing as the source(s) behind it seem(-s) to be far more sophisticated than us; it's completely uncertain if it's even within our grasp to solve the riddle. Evidently the scientific method has it's limitations, but it's enough to look at dreams, emotions and experiences to establish that. However, we can't blame ourselves as easily when scrutinizing the full width of the UFO mystery and its doings.

With the acceptance of the latter we have to recognize our own restrictions, admit our minds defeat against a World of uncertainty and wonder.


Rejoice.

Mind Your Thoughts

Last fall an extraordinary man passed away. His name was Dr. Masaru Emoto and his field of research concerned to what extent consciousness can affect water molecules. This is what he did: he marked water bottles with different labels, some with a positively charged expression like "Thank you" or "I love you", some with a neutral one and the rest with a very negative message e.g. "I will kill you". After actively sending these thoughts to the respective bottle, he examined the molecular structures of the water.


The water from the positive canisters showed beautiful, geometric crystals whereas the negatively "charged" water looked broken and asymmetric in his microscope. His findings suggested that thought indeed has the ability to affect at least water. This led him to spend the rest of his life travelling around the globe, lecturing on the importance of meditation and love in a world that truly is more interconnected than the current scientific paradigm is willing to admit.

Water molecules and their state of being depending on their treatment. 
The effect of the musical pieces was probably positive due to the test conductors affection for them.

Naturally he took a lot of heat from the skeptic part of the scientific community, being accused of engaging in pseudoscience, a methodological question which according to himself might very well be true. Whether that's a reaction due to his humble Japanese mannerism or the fact that he just don't care I'll leave upon for speculation - perhaps it's beyond science after all. Of course The James Randi Foundation mocked him for refusing to undertake their bogus $1 million $ challenge - but their shenanigans is a topic for another post.

Dr. Masaru Emoto

As a counter move to all the naysayers, Dr. Emoto thought out an experiment that not only heavily suggests that he was right all along, but also can be replicated at home through minuscule means. The method is called The Rice Experiment and all you need is a couple of jars, cooked rice and a magic marker. What you do is you put the rice in two or three different jars, shut them tight and write a positive word on one of them and a negative on the other (plus an unmarked third if you wish). Then you wait. 

After a couple of weeks you'll notice that the rice in the positive jar will be in better shape than the one in the negative one, at least this is the idea of the experiment. As the goal is to prove that intention can alter matter, it is of utmost importance that the containers are placed so that you have a clear view of them; and that you indeed take a moment everyday to send loving thoughts to the positive jar and vice versa to the other.

I've found quite a lot of documented Rice Experiments from random people on the internet. With impressive results. I'll let them speak for themselves.



A year ago my girlfriend and I tried this at home. She was highly skeptical so I suggested we made it a bit more interesting by betting on the results, if it worked she had to buy me dinner, and if it didn't, the other way around. Here's how it looked like after approximately 3 weeks:


"Kärlek" is the Swedish word for "Love", "Hat" meaning "Hate". We had Chinese food if you must know.

Even though most sites that writes about this are positive, there are debunkers out there, however many of them try to explain away the experiment without even conducting it, like this blog post from FoodRetro. Here's a post from Sciencereporting explaining why it isn't scientific and how one could go about to conduct a vastly more complex test that misses the whole point of the original one. These are all on the first page when you google "Rice experiment".

The first page that will pop up is a post by Carrie Poppy, an author for skeptical CSI (Comitee for Skeptical Inquiry). She actually goes through with the experiment; and subsequently attempts to discredit it with irrelevant comparisons and a flim-flam jar that draws attention from the fact that the negative rice actually did rot quicker than the rice in the other jars.

The canisters from Carrie Poppy's try.

"Well, he was the only one to mold, though the top of the rice in his jar ended up being the most exposed to air of all four samples." is her comment on the negative jar. Instead of discarding her experiment she ends her post with "I can’t help but wonder if the well-meaning re-creators of this experiment on the internet didn’t help their rice along, exposing the neglected or hated rice to more air, [...]".

So, do it again but this time make sure they are all tightly shut?

--

In the end no one has ever claimed that the Rice Experiment is a scientifically adequate way to measure something, of course it isn't. But seeing as it worked for me and countless others the effect of something inexplicable could very well be showing itself through this test.

Considering the profound implications hinted, everybody should try this - because the more positive results we can collect, the more undeniable it gets (assuming most results will be positive)Or perhaps it's just impossible to objectively conduct an experiment like this at home when even the hardcore skeptics "unintentionally" favors the positive rice?

Just try it, ok.

Our Friends, The Forest People


Most people have probably heard of Bigfoot – a hairy forest giant often described as a mixture of human and ape. The appearance and name vary depending on which part of the world you are in, but the legend of the big, hairy man exists on pretty much every continent. Most of us associate the phenomenon with North America, where they often are referred to as Sasquatch, but you’ve probably also heard of the Australian Yowie and the Yeti of Himalaya.


They are predominately reported in the coastal regions of North America, where there are plenty of mountainous areas and deep forest to inhabit without being disturbed by humans. Pretty much all Native American tribes recognize the Sasquatch as a real creature who has been around for at least as long as us. According to various indigenous legends the beings are extremely powerful and wise, having both immense strength and abilities that can only be described as magical. 

Their view goes quite contrary to the idea of a ‘missing link’ type of humanoid, a forefather to homo sapiens sapiens who has somehow managed to survive and elude every attempt to be documented or captured. 

However, the viewpoint of the First Nations people do resonate perfectly with a small fraction of modern day Bigfoot research, conducted by people who aren't as content to put an ad hoc-label on the hominid as the more mainstream 'experts' are. Instead they follow the evidence even though it might take them to strange and uncomfortable areas. 



My favorite paranormal topic next to UFO's has always been Bigfoot, but admittedly I've had some trouble making sense of the latter. Although there exist an abundance of evidence such as tracks, hair, video/audio recordings and literally thousands of witness testimonies, it wasn't until quite recently, last fall to be precise, that I stumbled upon information that convincingly tied it all together. But before we dive into a rabbit hole too deep, let's take a couple of minutes to establish the reality of the forest giants.

It only takes one white crow ...


The Bigfoot Field Research Organization (BFRO) has been collecting witness reports of hairy humanoid encounters since the mid 90's. Up until today over 2000 class A reports (clear visual contact) have been added to their database; keeping that number in mind one should remember that most encounters go unrecorded, if we optimistically assume that one fifth of all visual encounters would make it to the BFRO website we are talking about over 10 000 encounters in North America the last 100 years. That's 100 sightings a year - optimistically speaking.

It should be noted that even though every report that ends up on bfro.net only does so after a certain amount of follow up research (mainly a telephone interview with the witness, but occasionally even field work), they systematically ignore* statements not fitting the presupposed idea of an overwintered ancestor of some kind; statements that contain elements such as telepathy, telekinesis and cloaking - to name a few.

The depicted scenario is not as uncommon as one would think.

I salute the organization's initiative to collect these kinds of reports, but it's a pity they have to be selective about it, thus leaving their claim (to be) "The only scientific research organization exploring the bigfoot/sasquatch mystery." [italicized by author] rather trifling.

Looking at the immense amount of reported encounters the ever so often mentioned "lonely loon"-explanation - that only drugged up cranks see these beings - completely falls apart. The topic clearly deserves some serious attention. When the sum of anecdotal data gets overwhelmingly big it's insensible to ignore it.

Naturally the next question should address further corroborative evidence, and luckily there is plenty of that. Instead of engaging in the whole fauna of vocal recordings, plaster castings, dermal ridges, wood structures, fecal matter etc. etc. let's zoom in on the gold, and with that I mean video gold.

Let's roll the tape


It was only last autumn when I came across a YouTube account called ThinkerThunker. Behind it is a video editing expert who analyzes alleged video recordings of Sasquatch, and thanks to his meticulous scrutiny a lot of details in seemingly dodgy clips surface - details that tell a story about something not so easily explained as a man in a monkey suit.

In fact he's even observed no less than two distinct anatomical traits that clearly aren't human. They show up in several completely unrelated documentations, one of them relating to body ratios, the other is about the way they walk. Take a few minutes and watch these two videos as they should be considered highly valuable pieces of evidence. The Creature in the Giant Sequoias is also recommended watching.

Still from the Creature in the Giant Sequoias-footage, perhaps the most intriguing footage ever recorded next to the Patterson-Gimlin film.

Before we move on a few words on the (in)famous Patterson-Gimlin film are in order. The video that was shot in 1967 is still considered to be the best footage ever of a Sasquatch in the flesh. Although various notable experts in fields like bio mechanics, anthropology, primatology and costume design are reluctant to call it a Bigfoot, a majority of them don't want to call it a human either.

When looking at the arguments from both sides of the real vs. hoaxed discussion, it quickly becomes clear that the pro-hoax camp rely heavily on indirect points concerning the people involved rather than the film per se. The conclusion that we are seeing a man in a gorilla suit, holds up poorly to any serious investigation.

Seeing as it was filmed in 67, the suit - which we have yet to see by the way - must have been a miracle to behold, with authentic looking muscle paddings, glued on hair, no seams and even with elongated arms. To top it all off the costume maker even bothered to add a pair of female breasts to the creation - really... ?










Have a look at this stabilized (b/w) version in gif-format and decide for yourself. Notice the extraordinary long arms and the extreme angle of its legs while walking.


Tunnel vision


After taking a serious look at the plethora of evidence concerning the reality of the forest creatures one has to wonder how the heck it is possible that gigantic ape like humanoids are roaming the forests without ever being captured, killed or (clearly and more often) photographed. With this in mind it's no surprise that people who haven't had any experience or done their homework dismiss the whole thing as something for the mentally ill.

Since the very beginning the field of Bigfoot research has been dominated by the idea that these creatures are some kind of missing link between the world of primates and us. It's not hard to see why this idea has established itself as the main thesis for the Sasquatch enigma: after all the creatures look like a mixture of man and ape, and having the late discovery of the mountain gorilla in mind, the ancestor scenario is close at hand. As an added bonus this approach gives the phenomenon a more legitimate shimmer in the eyes of the scientific community.

 Roger Patterson in 1967, Prof. Jeffrey Meldrum in 2010. 

Paradoxically the assumption that they are primitive ape men is a dead end. Looking back at the last 50 years of Bigfoot research not much has happened when it comes to reaching a greater understanding of the phenomenon.

Prominent (crypto-)zoologists who's been in the field for decades still haven't even seen the creature, instead they are still making plaster casts of footprints, as if we haven't enough of them already. Add the occasional hair sample sent for DNA-analysis and you have what has been constituting "serious" Sasquatch research for the last half-century.

But to where do we turn our attention if we want a more complete picture of what's going on? For starters we could begin to look at the part of the phenomenon that is being ignored.

Stealth mode


When I decided to seriously delve into the world of Sasquatchery last year I wasn't aware of the paranormal aspects that witnesses sometimes report. Because of reasons mentioned above it took some time before they popped up during my research, but as soon as they did I had to admit that they did offer an eloquent albeit fantastic answer to the mystery.

In order to find cases with a flavor of high strangeness I dug through Albert Rosales excellent and extensive webpage Humanoid Sighting Reports - a compilation of reports about otherworldly meetings with human-shaped entities. Most of the material concern UFO occupants, but once in a while the intermittent Sasquatch story can be found. Many which contain elements such as telepathy, cloaking and inter-dimensionality.


Let me describe two cases that independently of each other describe a strikingly similar scenario. The first one took place in Stanislau National Forest, California.

It was in 1993 when a wildlife biologist reported seeing a huge hairy biped. The sighting only lasted a second or two as the giant, after taking a few steps, literally 'vanished into thin air' in front of the biologist's eyes.

Seven years later, in 2000, two persons are out camping somewhere in Oregon when they all of a sudden see a 2,8 m tall, black Bigfoot walk out of a brush. Upon reaching a clearing it starts to shimmer and all of sudden 'vanishes'. In the campers own words Have you ever seen in a desert setting, off in the distance, when heat rises from the ground... the blurry, wavy lines? That is what the creature did. It started to shimmering, and became almost transparent, and totally disappeared.

Supposing there is something to this, one has to wonder, where do they go? Are they becoming invisible or do they actually enter some other realm? Having gone through many 'normal' as well as fringe reports I'm convinced that they are capable of both (I will elaborate this standpoint further down). I've found four videos that do seem to feature the cloaking effect of these beings. I took the liberty of compiling them in a playlist.





All the way in


If the stories above suggest invisibility - which by the way would explain the vast majority of all Sasquatch witness accounts where only the sound of heavy footsteps can be heard - the following sightings point towards some kind of inter-dimensional access.

1989. Once again taking place in Oregon, close to Mt. Hood, a farmer sees a shimmering object hanging in mid air. It resembles a huge water drop. He observes it for a while when all of a sudden a hairy biped jumps out of it and takes off into the woods.

The perplexing  giant 'water drop' was also present in an encounter in Sedona, Arizona the same year. A man is inspecting property in an area when he stumbles upon a situation where he beholds the same type of shimmering 'portal', around it he spots several 3 m tall Sasquatches seemingly guarding the object. Needless to say "The witness did not hang around and left the area."**

Mt. Hood, Oregon. The location of many close encounters. 

A handful of experiences that share the exact same, bizarre characteristics. Considering the obvious reluctance witnesses must feel when reporting a Bigfoot encounter, one has to wonder how often strange aspects are deliberately left out in order to be taken somewhat seriously.

Rest assured these few examples constitute a mere tip of the iceberg, there are plentiful more on the Humanoid Sightings site alone (some of them detailed in this article on Paranormalistics) and even frequently in the YouTube comments section, this is from one of the stealth vids:
Thank you for making this video.. I'm from Idaho and have witness this with my own eyes before.. I had people think I was crazy for telling them about this.. I know what I saw... and also I seen them do a rocking side to side motion..[...] 
As for encounters with ESP communication I haven't found many of them in Rosales archive. A few with only a sentence or two. Fortunately I have two books which are based upon extensive information exchange between humans and the Sasquatch people, so let us without further ado take a closer look at what they have to convey to humanity.

The Missing Link


It's the year 1964 and a trucker has taken a few weeks off to look for gems in the deep wilderness of Oregon. A few days of hiking has put him far away from civilization and he's just about to pinpoint a river he's been looking for when he stumbles upon a wounded deer. An arrow is stuck in it's flesh but the man ties the animal to a tree and removes the arrow shortly thereafter. He spends a few hours fishing before he returns to his camp located in the same area where he found the deer. It's starting to get dark when he notices a peculiar creature observing him from a distance. 
He get's confused and thinks to himself "Geez, is that an animal? It looks rather human...", after only a few moments he hears a voice in his head saying Don't be afraid, I'm not going to harm you. The Sasquatch approaches the camp and sits down on a log 5-10 meters away from him and continues I just want to rest and sit for a while. I just want to be with you for a while. The trucker soon realizes that he is having a telepathic conversation with the huge hairy biped. It turns out that the Sasquatch got curious about the camper after he'd seen him take care of the deer, until then he'd only knew of humans harming animals. The conversation continues for approximately 2 hours before the forest giant waves good bye and disappears in the woods.***
If this story was the only one of it's kind there wouldn't be much reason to take it seriously. The reality though, is that this is one of hundreds of similar cases. Kewaunee Lapseritis is a researcher who has spent a great deal of his life collecting this kind of experiences from witnesses first hand.

So far he has written two books, The Psychic Sasquatch and their UFO Connection and The Sasquatch People and their Interdimensional Connection, both filled with witness accounts and much more. He got involved with the Sasquatch phenomenon when one of them contacted him through telepathy during a visit at a Native American reservation in 1973.

Kewaunee Lapseritis, the author of the two books is one of few researchers who's had the guts and integrity to follow the trail of evidence even though it leads to uncomfortable territory.

He and several others have been in contact with the Sasquatch people on and off for decades now, and the story that has emerged is of a most extraordinary sort. To this date over 300 people from all walks of life, including lawyers, professors and physicists, have been in touch with Lapseritis. This is what has unfolded so far****:

The forest giants, or Sasquatch as they prefer to be called, have been roaming the Earth for millions of years. They inhabit most continents and just like us they vary in appearance, allegedly there are at least 7 different kinds of them. Even though they may have animal like traits they are highly intelligent human beings, in fact they are considerably more evolved than us. With their powerful psychic abilities they can communicate via their minds, astral project, teleport and much more. 
They frequent other realms or dimensions through certain portals, but how it works, why they are doing it and to what extent they're reluctant to tell us. As is the case with us humans, extraterrestrial entities have been in close contact with them since a long time; with the difference being a closer, wider and more open camaraderie.  
The Sasquatch people are deeply spiritual. This means that they respect all living things and that they are loving and peaceful to each other. Having observed humankind's destructive and self-loathing attitude for a long time now they tend to avoid us. Using their psychic skills they can easily avert any interaction with a human in the wilderness. Nonetheless they occasionally reach out to individuals with a developed spiritual awareness/an open and fearless heart.  
It may be that we are arrogant, self absorbed and ruthless in our ways, but the Sasquatch still care for us and they very much care for this planet which we have neglected in our pursuit for wealth. This is why they have increasingly been contacting us the last few decades, to let us know that our ways need to change. 

Many years ago when Lapseritis asked one of them if they were the missing link, he got the following reply No, you people are the missing link. You don't know where you've come from or where you're  going!. Considering: the raging wars we fight against each other, the serious environmental devastation caused by over-fishing and factory farms, the rampant destruction of our forests and rain forests, our society's overall goal being material riches ... I'm inclined to concur.

Coincidents and conversion


In the channeled Law of One-material, mentioned in greater detail in a previous blog post, there are a few passages concerning Bigfoot. One of them in particular got me thinking when I a few weeks later scanned through Humanoid Sighting Reports and unearthed a most bizarre encounter, seemingly closely related to the passage. Both pieces of information have to do with a nuclear event and fit together like hand in glove. Here's the Law of One bit:
9.18 Questioner: Is there any particular race of people on our planet now who were incarnated here from second density?

Ra: I am Ra. There are no second-density consciousness complexes here on your sphere at this time. However, there are two races which use the second-density form. One is the entities of the planetary sphere you call Maldek. These entities are working their understanding complexes through a series of what you would call karmic restitutions. They dwell within your deeper underground passageways and are known to you as “Bigfoot.”
The other race is that being offered a dwelling in this density by guardians who wish to give the mind/body/spirit complexes of those who are of this density at this time appropriately engineered physical vehicles, as you would call these chemical complexes, in the event that there is what you call nuclear war. [my bold]
The encounter from Humanoid Encounters:
Location. Kountze, Texas
Date: October 1999 Time: night
The witness was driving through the town of Kountze after a night in Sour Lake and was returning to his then-residence some 15 miles further on, when his ears "almost burst" when a deafening sound not unlike a swarm of bees filled the interior of the car, and "made my ears pop like when you're on an airplane". Disoriented and suddenly dizzy, he stopped the car at the side of the road, got out, and was amazed to suddenly see a laser-like, pencil-thin shaft of red light appear about 10 to 15 feet in front of his car. Quick as a flash, the light disappeared, as did the strange buzzing noise that had so affected him. Not only that: he suddenly heard a diabolical roar coming from the woods of the Big Thicket, that sounded like that of a large, enraged wild animal---but a type that the witness had never before encountered. He quickly jumped back into his car and fled the scene. But the story was far from over. After retiring to his bed that night, the witness had a distinctly strange dream of a truly apocalyptic nature, in which the Earth was in ruins following a planetary-wide nuclear exchange, and large, Bigfoot style entities surfaced out of the dark forests and woods to claim the Earth as their own. And all the while, strange UFOs (like giant jelly-fish) soared overhead, as the last remnants of the human race attempted to stave off extinction. 
The message from the so called Sasquatch whisperers more often than not relates to the dream in the sense that our technological advancement has superseded our spiritual side to a point where most of us doesn't even recognize the latter's existence. Therein lies a great risk. In order to counter the negative way of modern civilization a greater awareness of ourselves, the planet and the cosmos is necessary.

The curious dream reminds me of a UFO-photo taken in Denmark in 1975.

My feeling is that in the last decade or so, the giants have deliberately been letting themselves get documented on film more frequently, the reason being the turbulent times we are living in. How does this make sense? Well, if we for once would listen to what the First Nations people have to say, the conclusion is a most reasonable one to make. We must acknowledge that we are the cause but at the same time the solution.

As is the case with other paranormal phenomenon such as crop circles, UFO's and channeling - expressions by intelligences of a more evolved kind - the Bigfoot phenomenon tend to leave evidence that many times are impressive but always leaves room for doubt (except for the experiencer of course).

Having in mind the hollowness of a forced stance, this way of information exchange do seem highly equitable. The next step into the future have to be made solely by us - the decision must be our own.

But do we have the courage to base our next move on faith, or shall we forever be chained to the false comfort of 'knowing'? Ultimately a choice has to be made, let's hope it's the one of lesser limitations.

If you would tell a prominent person a 100 years ago that dolphins have a built in sonar that they use as their primary tool for navigation, communication etc., that person would likely have a hard time just grasping the idea of a sonar.

Yet, that person, and every single person on this earth today have a mind, they are conscious. Ironically we haven't even begun figuring out the nature of consciousness, we don't even know if it's possible in any meaningful, scientific way.

Gaining a greater understanding of the Sasquatch phenomenon has been one of my life long wishes. For many years it was archived in the back of my mind as something on par with Nessie and Thunderbirds.

Then, 10 years ago, the Law of One material made an entrance into my life and with that a more serious interest was ignited. Only recently did I actually start to pay some attention to this particular topic, likely not earlier because of an incompatible personal development stage.

It was with great joy that I realized that our friends, the forest people, are not only highly spiritual, but that they share the exact same view of the cosmos and its inhabitants as the one presented in the Law of One. Thus it all comes full circle.

Separation is an illusion, we are all (manifestations of) One intelligent infinity, One eternal affection.


Let's party.

The Ringmakers

Saturn certainly is one of the most spectacular members of our planetary family. The planets body could hold roughly 750 Earths, and it's mass is nearly one hundred times ours. But it is mainly its characteristic rings that makes it stand out among the rest of our neighbors, and quite rightfully so; for they are just as mysterious as they are beautiful. 



The established astronomic consensus says that these rings are made up of ice chunks, with sizes ranging from specks of dust to blocks up to 10 meter in diameter. They reach the length of hundreds of thousands of kilometer, yet their thickness of a mere 10 meter conforms to that of a razor blade to a basketball.

Two close up pictures of the rings. Click for enlargments.

Besides size and material the astronomers don't really know much about them. Questions like how they remain stable, how old they are and why they are there in the first place remains unanswered to this very day. And yes, it’s not only one but several distinguishable rings, all of them perfectly aligned.

The expert


But a lack of mainstream explanations doesn’t equal lack of explanations. Some years ago I came across a book with the intriguing title Ringmakers of Saturn* by Norman Bergrun. In the book he presents a plethora of (very) technical information, which according to him, answers the question of their origin. 

Now before we go into the actual data and its additional comments, a short presentation of the author is in order. 

 
Norman Bergrun and his book Ringmakers of Saturn.

Dr. Norman Bergrun has had quite a career working 12 years as a researcher at NACA (predecessor to NASA) before he moved on to Lockheed Missile and Space Company (later Lockheed Martin) where he during his 13 years of service, among other things, was in charge of planning and analysis of flight tests for the Navy Polaris Underwater Launch Missile System. His background is quite extensive and you can read more about it here, or see his complete cv listed at the bottom of this article. Needless to say, this guy is about as knowledgeable as they come.

It’s therefore very interesting to read his book which is made up of Bergrun’s meticulous scrutiny of circa 40 pictures of Saturn and it's rings taken by Voyager 1 and 2. The info is extremely dry and technical, but if you start from the beginning and read it slowly to the end, and take time to carefully study every picture that is being presented, you can kind of see where he's coming from and what he’s aiming at, but as he himself put it “if you are looking for entertainment, this is not the book”.



Some of the images are easier to understand than others,  but please note that there's a textual context to take into account when studying them. During his career Dr. Bergrun went through literally miles of  photo coverage-film, so he should know what's up.

According to Bergrun several of the Voyager pictures shows evidence of gigantic cylindrical vehicles residing in the rings. Furthermore, some of them even seem to spew out exhaust energy of some kind, which in combination with the fact that the rings change form and sometimes brakes, leads him to conclude that they are in fact the results of these space craft’s emissions.

The tricky lingo and the hard-to-tell-what's-going-on-pictures are hurdles that perhaps only a degree in engineering might overcome, but all-in-all his theory is coherent. Albeit far out, but least it’s something compared to the nix of the establishment. 
How the vehicles may look like,
according to the photographic evidence.
It sure looks rad, wouldn't mind a patch.

In the closing chapter of the book he allows for some personal reflection on the matter. One of the things he brings up is the Tunguska incident in 1908, where some kind of object – according to eye witnesses cylindrical in shape – appeared over the Siberian skies and exploded with a force greater than a thousand Hiroshima bombs [sic].

Many theories have been put forth as to what caused the immense blast, but none as good as to explain all of the aspects involved. Bergrun however, suggests that the object likely was some kind of craft of Saturnian origin.

I wouldn't normally make much fuss about a claim like this [particular] one, but as a matter of fact I've stumbled upon a couple of remarkable correlations from other sources that leaves me no other choice but to seriously consider the reality of the Saturnian Overlords.

The Council


About the same time as Dr. Bergrun sat somewhere in Nevada working on Ringmakers a group of three quite extraordinary individuals in Kentucky were hard at work

During 1981-1984 a group of three individuals was hard at work channeling an intelligence called Ra, a societal mind complex, who gave extraordinary and consistent answers to the group’s questions regarding existence, cosmos, ethics, humankind, physics and more.

All together, a cosmic philosophy, based on the idea that everything, us included, ultimately is part of One Intelligent Infinity, is being presented**.


 
The Law of One: Book 1 and the group that helped bring it forth, starting from left: 
Carla L. Rueckert, Don Elkins, Jim McCarty. 

This philosophy has played a significant role in my life, and to this day continues to inspire and give meaning to it. As I consider it to be trustworthy I don’t dismiss anything of it, and so far haven’t had any reason to either.

All of the statements, the more outlandish ones included, seem to be independently confirmed by other (fringe) sources. In my Swedish blog I have followed up on several of Ra’s mentions, e.g. Bigfoot, Breakaway Civilizations and Saturn; and there’s always something there to be found, usually of a highly fascinating as well as entertaining nature.

The topic of Saturn is touched upon in three separate channeling sessions (6, 14 and 30). In both #6 and #30 Ra tells us about a Council of benevolent beings who dwell in what we see as the rings:

"6.8 Questioner: Where is this Council located?
Ra: This Council is located in the octave, or eight[h] dimension, of the planet Saturn, taking its place in an area which you understand in third-dimensional terms as the rings."  
"30.14 Questioner: Thank you. Can you give me a brief history of the metaphysical principles of the development of each of our planets around the sun and their function with respect to evolution of beings?
Ra: I am Ra. [...] The planet known as Saturn has a great affinity for the infinite intelligence and thus it has been dwelled upon in its magnetic fields of time/space by those who wish to protect your system."

So both are talking about Saturnians, even though it’s not clear if we should be able to see the Council or not, seeing as it is positioned in the eight octave/dimension of the planet’s rings. 

For years I've found it curious that they both talk about intelligent beings around Saturn. However it wasn’t until about six months ago, when I read through the whole Ringmakers of Saturn, that I found out that they also have similar views on what happened over Tunguska.

Let’s take a look at what they have to say, starting with the passage from Bergrun's book:

[...] To illustrate, a sudden change in the surface of the Earth occurred 30 June 1908. On this day, a violent thunderous explosion rocked an area near Tunguska in Central Siberia, USSR. Twelve hundred square miles became devastated. Small villages and wildlife disappeared during this blast. A large forest was flattened. According to eye-witness accounts, a flaming cylindrical object was sighted in the vicinity just prior to the explosion. After years of intensive study and scientific research, a firm conclusion has been drawn that the devastation had been caused by an aerial nuclear explosion. Supporting this conclusion is the Hiroshima nuclear-bomb destruction which produced a surfacedevastation pattern similar to that recorded at Tunguska. Some scientists go farther with an assertion that the devastation had been caused by an extraterrestrial spaceship which exploded. After all nuclear bombs had not been invented at the time of the 1908 explosion; and furthermore, they submit, there were eyewitnesses. The Tunguska story affirms the existence of cylindrical vehicles and their nuclear character.

Was an alien space ship from Saturn responsible for the Tunguska blast? Two unrelated sources suggest just that. 

"17.3 Questioner: In meditation a few nights ago I had the impression of a question about a crater in Russia. I believe it was in Tunguska. Can you tell me what caused the crater?
Ra: I am Ra. The destruction of a fission reactor caused this crater.  
17.4 Questioner: Whose reactor?
Ra: I am Ra. This was what you may call a “drone” sent by Confederation which malfunctioned. It was moved to an area where its destruction would not cause infringement upon the will of mind/body/spirit complexes. It was then detonated.  
17.5 Questioner: What was its purpose in coming here?
Ra: It was a drone designed to listen to the various signals of your peoples. You were, at that time, beginning work in a more technical sphere. We were interested in determining the extent and the rapidity of your advances. This drone was powered by a simple fission motor or engine as you would call it. It was not that type which you now know, but was very small. However, it has the same destructive effect upon third-density molecular structures. Thus as it malfunctioned we felt it was best to pick a place for its destruction rather than attempt to retrieve it, for the possibility/probability modes of this maneuver looked very, very minute."

The following conclusion therefore can be made: at two completely unrelated instances, information came about suggesting that more developed intelligences, with accompanying crafts, reside in the rings of Saturn. 

They also suggested that the Tunguska event was the result of a (malfunctioning) vehicle associated with these ring dwelling entities (although indirect in Ra's case, as there's a difference between the Confederation and the Council).

The LoO-session happened in February, 1981. Now Bergrun’s book was published in 1986, but according to the author it was written the same year, in 1981. 





...



There is something about the implausible. When two unrelated events randomly cross paths in a meaningful way, one can not deny that certain spark of magic that makes you joyful for a moment or two. 

In my case, I didn't give them much attention until perhaps 2-3 years ago, but since then I've more often than not written them down, and much like dreams they manifest more regularly the more you take time to reflect upon them. 

One such occurrence happened when I researched the subjects of this article. Important or not, if there's one thing I've learned when it comes to synchronicities in my own life, it is: they come with wonder.
