Chupacabras: Sudden Impact
By José Pérez – PRMUFON
On Saturday, 20 April 2013, a team of researchers consisting of this author, José Pérez, his wife Ilbis Dominguez, Mr. Luissepi Quiñones, Mr. José A. Martinez, Mr. Anibal Martínez and Mr. Richard Flores reported to the residence of Mr. Fernando Díaz to interview him about the impressive and highly important case which we will endeavor to narrate briefly in this article as follows…
In the early hours of 30 March 2013 at around 6:15 a.m., Mr. Fernando Díaz, a resident of the town of Guayama, Puerto Rico, was headed to work as usual. Mr. Díaz was driving along PR-3, one of the island’s main thoroughfares. The sky was light at that time of the morning, although the sun was not fully out yet.
Mr. Diaz was driving his blue 2001 Hyundai Brio at an approximate speed of 35 miles per hour, heading from the town of Guayama to the town of Salinas.
As he approached kilometer 3.0, right in front of the facilities of the División de Tránsito y Vehículos Hurtados (Traffic and Stolen Vehicles Division) of the Guayama State Police, he noticed that the vehicle ahead of him began zigzagging, as if trying to avoid something.
When he looked, he could see something strange coming over the vehicle – something he had never seen before. It was an enormous, dark-winged figure that appeared to have collided against the vehicle in front of him, and was trying to stand up in an effort to take flight. His first impression was that it was a gigantic bird.
The creature never had enough time to get up off the ground and struck the grille of Mr. Díaz’s car head-on. With the same momentum, it continued sliding along the vehicle’s hood until it struck the windshield, continuing to slide off the hood.
Mr. Diaz stepped on the brake, terrified at the sight, and brought his vehicle to a sudden halt. Luckily there were no cars behind him. After stopping, he looked through the rear-view mirror to see exactly what he had hit, but was unable to see anything.
Although the event lasted only seconds, Mr. Díaz was able to take in considerable details of the creature that hit his car.
According to his description, the creature had a broad face like a Pitbull terrier. It had a short snout and nose resembling that of a dog. Its eyes were small, human-sized, but completely dark and glossy. It had something like ears on either side of its head. It had no feathers; its skin was like a bat’s and although he thinks it may have had hair, it was short and smooth along the body.
The creature was black or dark brown in color, and seemed to have arms aside from wings – that is to say, it had six extremities: two legs, two arms and two wings. Its feet appeared to have multiple toes with claws, and its extended wings resembled those of a bat.
Mr. Díaz noted that the wings appeared to stretch out from two to three feet on either side of his vehicle. A 2001 Hyundai Brio measures exactly 5 feet and 8 inches wide, meaning that if we round it off to 6 feet and add a minimum of two additional feet to each side, we would be talking of a creature whose wingspan was 10 feet from wingtip to wingtip.
Mr. Díaz admitted to us that the first thing that came to his mind was that he had seen the Devil.
Despite his fear, he could see that the vehicle ahead of him was pulling into a Gulf station some 400 meters ahead on the right side of the road.
Once there, he saw the driver of the other vehicle – a white Toyota Corolla – stepping out. Excitedly, Mr. Díaz asked him: “Did you see that?!”
Both drivers spent a few minutes discussing the awful experience, but since they had to reach their respective workplaces, decided to continue their journeys. They decided not to make a formal complaint to the police, since they were certain no one was going to believe them and would probably consider it a joke, and mock them.
Mr. Díaz told his co-workers about the event and one of them accompanied him back to the site at around 10:00 a.m. to see if they could find the thing that hit his vehicle, but there were no traces to be found.
Although Mr. Díaz has been very kind and cooperated with us in our investigation, the driver of the other car does not want his name made public, at least for now. We hope he changes his mind soon in order to lend further credence to this significant case.
Mr. Díaz knows Ms. Felicitas Cintrón, who reported seeing a similar creature in 2012, and when sharing their experiences, agreed that they were definitely talking about the same entity.
Luckily for Mr. Díaz (but not for us in our evidence-gathering endeavors) his vehicle suffered no damage whatsoever aside from some scratches to the paint. The bodywork was not dented and the windshield did not shatter.
We would like to express our thanks to Mr. José Oscar Martínez and Ms. Felicitas Cintrón, who informed us about this case, and especially Mr. Fernando Díaz for having welcomed us into his home and bravely recounted his terrible experience, allowing us to share it with the public.
In my opinion, this could be one of the most significant cases in explaining the mystery that surrounds the mutilation of animals by creatures of unknown origin.
We shall continue our investigations until the day that those who know the truth – and we are certain that they do – choose to make it public.
When I read this article and come across the description of the winged creature, the first thing I thought was “Jersey Devil!”, not chupacabras.
I suppose there could be winged chupacabras, but I don’t think the name applies to this particular creature.
Of course cryptozoology isn’t my main forte, but I’ve done enough research over the years to express my opinion about such things. I’ll stand by Scott Corrales’s research in Fortean things Latin American however because I have limited experience in that cultural venue.
From Technology Review:
Two high-profile entrepreneurs say they want to put a DNA sequencing machine on the surface of Mars in a bid to prove the existence of extraterrestrial life.
In what could become a race for the first extraterrestrial genome, researcher J. Craig Venter said Tuesday that his Maryland academic institute and his company, Synthetic Genomics, would develop a machine capable of sequencing and beaming back DNA data from the planet.
Separately, Jonathan Rothberg, founder of Ion Torrent, a DNA sequencing company, is collaborating on an effort to equip his company’s “Personal Genome Machine” for a similar task.
“We want to make sure an Ion Torrent goes to Mars,” Rothberg told Technology Review.
Although neither team yet has a berth on Mars rocket, their plans reflect the belief that the simplest way to prove there is life on Mars is to send a DNA sequencing machine.
“There will be DNA life forms there,” Venter predicted Tuesday in New York, where he was speaking at the Wired Health Conference.
Venter said researchers working with him have already begun tests at a Mars-like site in the Mojave Desert. Their goal, he said, is to demonstrate a machine capable of autonomously isolating microbes from soil, sequencing their DNA, and then transmitting the information to a remote computer, as would be required on an unmanned Mars mission. (Hear his comments in this video, starting at 00:11:01.) Heather Kowalski, a spokeswoman for Venter, confirmed the existence of the project but said the prototype system was “not yet 100 percent robotic.”
Meanwhile, Rothberg’s Personal Genome Machine is being adapted for Martian conditions as part of a NASA-funded project at Harvard and MIT called SET-G, or “the search for extraterrestrial genomes.”
Christopher Carr, an MIT research scientist involved in the effort, says his lab is working to shrink Ion Torrent’s machine from 30 kilograms down to just three kilograms so that it can fit on a NASA rover. Other tests, already conducted, have determined how well the device can withstand the heavy radiation it would encounter on the way to Mars.
NASA, whose Curiosity rover landed on Mars in August, won’t send another rover mission to the planet before at least 2018 (see “The Mars Rover Curiosity Marks a Technological Triumph“), and there’s no guarantee a DNA sequencing device would go aboard. “The hard thing about getting to Mars is hitting the NASA specifications,” says George Church, a Harvard University researcher and a senior member of the SET-G team. “[Venter] isn’t ahead of anyone else.”
Venter has a great idea here, but it reminds me of a certain movie in which sequencing alien DNA wasn’t such a great plan.

UFO researcher and author Nick Redfern expounds on Micah Hanks’ blog Mysterious Universe on the theory that UFO aliens are not necessarily alien – that they are indeed a modern iteration of fairies, demons, angels, goblins and other forms of magical being(s) from the past.
The late Mac Tonnies – author of The Cryptoterrestrials and After the Martian Apocalypse – once said: “I find it most interesting that so many descriptions of ostensible ‘aliens’ seem to reflect staged events designed to misdirect witnesses and muddle their perceptions.” Mac was not wrong. In fact, he was right on target. One can take even the most cursory glance at ufological history and see clear signs where events of a presumed alien and UFO nature have been carefully controlled, managed and manipulated by the intelligence behind the phenomenon.
A look back at many of the early books, periodicals and fanzines on the Flying Saucers of yesteryear will show they were filled with encounters between astonished humans and aliens “taking soil samples.” “Radar-visual” encounters were all over the place. People were always in the right place – or, depending on your perspective, the wrong place! – to see the surprised and rumbled ETs hastily scoop up their little tools and race back to the safety of their craft. And they would always be sure to take to the skies in view of the witness.
If, however, we critically analyze events of this type, it becomes obvious that a trend is at work. These were not matters of an accidental or stumbled upon nature – at all. The entities were seen because they clearly wished to be seen. The reason: almost certainly to encourage the spreading of a belief in aliens amongst us – and in definitive meme-like style. And it has undeniably worked. After all, barely 65-years after the Kenneth Arnold encounter at Washington State in June 1947, the UFO phenomenon – and what it potentially implies, whether you’re a believer or not – is, today, known of just about here, there and everywhere.
In the bigger scheme of things, 65-years is no time at all. But in that period pretty much every one of us has been exposed to the theory that “UFOs = aliens” in some capacity, whether it’s via watching a TV show, reading a newspaper, seeing a TV commercial that incorporates UFOs into its marketing campaign, having a personal encounter or knowing someone who has, and…well, the list goes on. And that many admittedly don’t accept aliens are among us is, in some ways, wholly irrelevant to the fact that those same people still know what the term “UFO” suggests. Only sixty-five years after Arnold and we’re all pretty much “infected” by the alien-meme.
But, why would such entities – or whatever the real nature of the phenomenon may be – wish to make themselves known to us in such curious, carefully-managed fashion? Maybe it’s to try and convince us they have origins of the ET variety, when they are actually…something very different…
Back in 1957, a Brazilian named Antonio Villas Boas claimed to have been seduced by a vibrant, pleasantly-stacked space-babe who growled like a wild beast while the pair got it on. Hey, it doesn’t really get much better than that, does it? Well, I guess she could have brought a girlfriend along, too…
The Villas Boas affair is one that has been embraced by some in the UFO community, derided by others, and outright dismissed by far more than a few. Granted, it’s a highly controversial story, but there’s something else, too.
Before his departure from the craft to which he was taken, Villas Boas allegedly attempted to steal a clock-like device, but was thwarted from doing so by an irate crew-member. Researcher Jacques Vallee has noted that Villas Boas described the clock as having one-hand, and several marks, that would correspond to the 3, 6, 9, and 12 figures of an ordinary clock. However, while time certainly passed by, the clock-hand did not.
“The symbolism in this remark by Villas-Boas is clear,” said Vallee. “We are reminded of the fairy tales…of the country where time does not pass.” In addition, centuries-old folklore is replete with tales of people who claimed to have visited the realm of the fairies and who tried to bring back with them a souvenir, but only to be thwarted, in one form or another, from doing so at the last minute – just like Villas Boas was.
And still on the matter of fairies: In 1961, a Wisconsin chicken-farmer named Joe Simonton claimed to have met aliens who landed on his property in a classic Flying Saucer-style craft. They were said to be very human-looking entities, who had an “Italian” appearance, and generously gave the stunned Simonton a handful of pancakes that one of the crew-members happily cooked on his alien grill! Like the story of Villas-Boas, it’s not just controversial, but beyond controversial! However, read on…
The U.S. Air Force took notice of the Simonton case and, as a consequence, secured a remaining pancake for analysis. A report prepared by the Food and Drug Laboratory of the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare demonstrated that the pancake was made of soya bean, bran starch, buckwheat and hydrogenated fat. But, what was interesting was the fact that the pancake was totally lacking in salt. In the folklore of the Middle Ages, fairies could not abide salt.
On this same path, in today’s alien abduction stories, people are shown so-called “Hybrid Babies.” In fairy mythology, such entities had an obsessive interest in human reproduction and would often steal babies and leave “changelings” in their place.
Many alien abductees appear to have screen-memories in which their unearthly encounters with the black-eyed Grays were replaced by dreams and recollections of encountering owls. Roman mythology tells of the Strix or Striga that craved human flesh and often manifested while people slept. Its name was derived from the Greek term for owl. Tales from ancient Babylonia tell of owl-like entities, of a supernatural nature, provoking terror and fear in the homes of people in the dead of night – just like the Grays.
The parallels are obvious. We are seeing evidence of a very old phenomenon in our midst us that, at various times, has been perceived by the Romans, Greeks and people of Babylonia as near-demonic in nature, by the folk of the Middle Ages as being fairy-based in origin, and by us, today, as extraterrestrials.
This has become the modern meme amongst the UFO community nowadays. While such researchers as Stanton Friedman remain what passes for “mainstream” thought in the research area, the “aliens are not necessarily alien” meme is fast becoming the mainstream thought in this arena.
More to come tomorrow.
Hat tip to the Anomalist.
My ol’ pal Highwayman and I have been having quite a discussion lately (with him doing most of the ‘discussin’ of course lol!) about Dr. Hawking, God and such. While talking about spiritual things leave me feeling a little itchy, I of course ran across this little synchronistic piece on Jason Offutt’s blog From the Shadows about a man who suffered an injury playing a sport and then has the ability of precognition:
Bob Higgins went for a rebound in a Mormon Church gym when someone cut out his legs and he fell to the court, his head bouncing off the hard wood floor.
“I suffered an extremely hard concussion and lived,” Higgins said.
Higgins, a Catholic, had twisted his ankle playing in that gym before, and after his teammates dismissed his injury, he vowed to God he’d never play there again. But he did – and as Higgins lie on the floor unconscious, he felt his spirit leave his body.
“I was out and floated up through the hoop looking down at myself as my teammates carried me off,” he said.
Higgins said he could see a clear silver strand connecting his spirit self to his physical body as his teammates moved his body onto a stage adjacent to the court. Then they left his body there and resumed the game. His spirit self stood, watching the game until he saw people approaching.
“A group of what I think were angels began walking my way,” he said. “Then out of the group a small man came having been directed by a taller bearded man from a group of robed men.”
This small man reached out to Higgins and carried him up a tunnel of light.
“We arrived at a large glass-like temple with black and gold flakes in the shiny floor, mostly black,” he said. “The purple curtains were very tall all around.”
Higgins’ guide took him up steps to a throne holding a bearded man.
“He had dark black hair and bore scars on his hands and feet and face,” Higgins said. “I am sure it was Jesus. He looked like a biker, not menacing but authoritative and in control.”
This man Higgins believed to be Jesus wore sandals of gold and jewels. He looked at Higgins, then, unsmiling, gave commands to the small man who had brought him there.
“I felt kind of ashamed to be there because I really didn’t want to be there,” Higgins said. “I knew he knew all about me, but it went so quickly and I felt like it as a blur and I really had no control of myself at this point. I could think and see, but I didn’t breath or feel anything; I was just an it.”
The man on the throne gestured to a person Higgins felt was an angel. The angel took Higgins by the arm and led back to the tunnel. Higgins didn’t like what waited for him back in the gym.
“We descended swiftly and I found myself sitting up still out of my body and I saw around me large men in bright robes; large blonde men with backsides like ‘he men,’” Higgins said. “Very big guys fighting with fierce looking scraggly men trying to reach around savagely at me with long nails; dirty desperate looking men who I could barely make out in the darkness.”
These unkempt men in rags fought with Higgins’ angels, trying to grab Higgins, then one angel touched Higgins and he woke.
“Whoa, I had a headache,” Higgins said. “I had to be carried back to my apartment with a concussion and off work for a week.”
Higgins believes his experience has to do with breaking his promise to God.
“I think I let the devil in,” he said. “I had not kept my vow not to play ball with the Mormons because I had been hurt before playing ball with them and they just left me there. Mormons aren’t bad, it was just a failure on my part to keep my vow.”
Something happened to Higgins after his concussion – something that lets him see future horrors.
“I got warnings of attacks in my sleep about terrorists, through the first Trade Center bombing and the Oklahoma City bombing,” he said.
His most terrifying premonition was on Sept. 10, 2001.
“A spirit tried to wake me the night before 9-11 and told me, ‘Wake up young man, your nation is under attack,’” Higgins said. “I asked in my sleep, ‘Where? Where? By whom?”
The spirit told him Washington, D.C., and New York.
“I was so disturbed to see rubble and smoke as if I was propelled in time to the scene,” Higgins said. “I was choking.”
Higgins kicked in his sleep and woke his wife who asked what was wrong.
“I told her what the spirit said to me and she remembered it later that morning and was astonished,” he said. “I was sorely confused. I thought about it all morning and I couldn’t decide what I should do.”
He realized there was nothing he could do.
“I felt bad knowing this and not doing anything to this day,” Higgins said. “Watching in horror as the planes hit the second time then people jumping to their deaths.”
Remember that I said earlier that this was a synchronicity coming across this recent post by Offutt? Well, he was a guest on the Paracast the past weekend in which he discussed his book about finding paranormal objects and activities literally in your backyard.
The synchronicity isn’t about finding something in my yard (other than cats and woodchucks) but about coming across Jason Offutt related stuff in two days that talks about a religious vision while talking about religion with the Highwayman.
I know, that’s reaching, but it’s cool, is it not?
The South American UFO blog Inexplicata reports that a recent photo of a “humanoid” was posted on another blog recently, supposedly un-retouched:
Sebastian Aranguren, writing for the July 12 2010 edition of Diario Popular, discusses an unusual photo of an “invisible humanoid” whose presence was captured only by a digital camera after the waters of Laguna del Monte were inexplicably stirred as if by an external force.
The photo was taken by an anonymous businessman from the city of Almirante Brown. Luis Burgos of the Fundación Argentina de Ovnilogía and his photo analysis team have determined that it is a “clean” image showing no signs of manipulation. “There are very few photos of humanoids in the world,” Burgos is quoted as saying, “and this case acquires major significance in national ufology.”
The photo was taken on March 14 of this year — Easter Sunday — at 15:56 hours by “Ivan” (surnames withheld) in the company of his wife and children.
Diario Popular’s blog has disabled the photo copy function. Those interested in seeing the “Laguna del Monte Humanoid” for themselves can click http://www.popularonline.com.ar/nota.php?Nota=532479# — the FAO researchers say the image shows a neckless figure wearing a sort of diving suit that sags at the knees. “The intruder appears to be standing on the water itself, looking back at the eyewitness…
I saw the photo and was unimpressed by it. Pareidolia anyone?
Then again, it resembles the grey alien archetype slightly, so who knows?
In this 21st Century, perhaps we not only owe our tech to folks like Einstein, Edison and Hawking, but to the greatest one of all.
Tesla, a pioneering Serbian-born physicist, made the prediction about the portable messaging service in the Popular Mechanics magazine in 1909.
Tesla, whose name lives on at Tesla Motors, the electric car manufacturer, saw wireless energy as the only way to make electricity thrive.
He wrote in the magazine that, one day it would be possible to transmit wireless messages all over the world.
Tesla, who spent most of his adult life in America before his death in New York in 1943, imagined such a hand-held device would be simple to use and that, one day, everyone in the world would communicate to friends using it.
This, he added, would usher in a new era of technology.
Seth Porges, the magazine’s technology editor, disclosed Tesla’s prediction at a presentation, titled “108 years of futurism”, to industry figures recently in New York.
The “Crackberry” as it has been dubbed for its addictive qualities, is popular with business executives and US President Barack Obama, but has struggled in Britain to widen its appeal to a younger demographic.
The magazine, which has nine international editions that is read by millions, has been trying to imagine how the world will look in future years since it was first published in January 1902.
“Nikola Tesla was able to predict technology which is still in its nascent forms a hundred years later,” Mr Porges said.
“He talked a lot about his other great passion, which was wireless power.
“It has taken a little longer to get off the ground, but work on fascinating wireless conductive transmission is going on right now in research centres at MIT and Intel and other places.”
But some predictions have fallen short of expectations such as personal helicopters, flying cars, airports positioned on the top of giant buildings, and even an oven that also acted as a hairdryer.
In the first half of the 20th century, other magazine writers imagined trains that were transported around the country via hot air balloons, fire fighters that wore sprinkler helmets and homebuyers that chose their homes via mail order.
Once again I must bring up the rumor that Tesla received his ideas from “aliens.”
There are rumors that a Russian territorial governor might have had contact with ‘aliens’, possibly passing state secrets.
Concerns have been raised by State Duma deputy Andrei Lebedev that a Russian governor, who is claiming to have had contact with extraterrestrials in 1997, may have compromised state secrets.The story, first told by governor Kirsan Ilyumzhinov on Russian television last week, is making the rounds in the mainstream media.
According to his personal account of an extraterrestrial encounter, Ilyumzhinov was contacted by aliens on September 18, 1997.
Joe Firmage, the former CEO of the multi-billion dollar Internet consulting company USWeb, claimed to have been contacted by an extraterrestrial visitor in October 1997.
According to many accounts, the alleged aliens are attracted to bedrooms and sleeping humans.
Joe Firmage reported a visitor at the foot of his bed.
Firmage also reported that the alleged alien projected a ball of light into his body, resulting in an indescribable state of ecstasy.
According to Moscow Times, as Ilyumzhinov was falling asleep, he heard ‘someone’ calling him to the balcony of his Moscow apartment, where he entered a “semi-transparent half tube” and saw human-looking aliens in yellow spacesuits.
Communication with the extraterrestrial interlopers took place using mind-to-mind telepathy. Ilyumzhinov explained that the contact with the visitors took place “on a level of the exchange of the ideas.”
Recent research into new applications for brain scanning technology suggests it will be possible to convert brain images into words. The possibility of mind-to-mind communication, mediated by advanced technology, has moved from the province of science fiction into the real world.
Unlike the account from Firmage, who claimed the extraterrestrial visitor chuckled when it was told he wanted to travel in space, Ilyumzhinov claims to have actually been taken aboard the otherworldly craft. According to Ilyumzhinov, when his driver, minister, and assistant arrived at this apartment in the morning, he was no where to be found.
About an hour later, Ilyumzhinov emerged from the bedroom, much to their shock and disbelief.
Andrei Lebedev, who is a member of the Duma’s Security Committee, has reportedly requested that Russian President Dmitry Medvedev conduct a security review, to ensure that the aliens did not elicit (or presumably telepathically obtain) confidential information.
According to Moscow Times, “Lebedev also asked Medvedev whether Ilyumzhinov had ever informed the Kremlin of his contacts with aliens and whether a procedure was in place for senior officials who know state secrets — like Ilyumzhinov — to report such contacts to the Kremlin.”
Joe Firmage’s public revelation of his 1997 personal extraterrestrial encounter eventually led to his resignation from USWeb in 1999.
To remain the governor of Kalmykia, Ilyumzhinov must be reappointed by President Medvedev in October.
Recently, strange reports of otherworldly beings and government black operations have been connected to famous politicians and government officials interested in alternative energy sources.
One of the most infamous legends in UFOlogy is the so-called Majestic 12 MAJIC Eisenhower Briefing Document. Although the document has been widely discredited, if taken at face value, US President Dwight D. Eisenhower was briefed concerning an alien presence.
Susan Eisenhower, the granddaughter of President Eisenhower, met with Russian President Medvedev in 2009 as a part of a bi-partisan commission on US-Russia relations, and is a member of US President Obama’s Department of Energy Blue Ribbon Commission on America’s Nuclear Future. Susan Eisenhower was married to Roald Sagdeev, the former director of the Soviet Space Research Institute.
Laura Magdalene Eisenhower, the great-granddaughter of US President Dwight D. Eisenhower, claims to have been the victim of an attempted recruitment into a secret Mars colony project involving an extraterrestrial presence. According to documents obtained by STARstream Research, the alleged Mars mission concept was based upon new nuclear powered rocket engines.
Nuclear powered rocket engines were among the futuristic ideas examined by the Space Technology International Forum, or STAIF.
Beyond exotic nuclear powered rocket engines, rumors concerning exotic alternative energy concepts and a possible extraterrestrial connection have been the topic of conversation by government related sources.
STAIF Section “F” examined far-out fringe topics including warp drives, worm holes and beyond. Paul Murad of the Defense Intelligence Agency, and Dr. Eric Davis, who is known for a teleportation study commissioned by the USAF, were among the presenters.
According to one source, a journalist covering the STAIF conferences was approached by American intelligence with an offer of money in exchange for editorial control of the reporter’s content.
Former CIA analyst Ron Pandolfi, an associate of Paul Murad, is well known for his interest in UFOs and alternative science. Pandolfi was “the highest ranking scientist at the Agency,” and was ” put to work on developing alternative energy sources,” according to Ken Timmerman of Newsmax. Recently, Pandolfi tasked the elite JASON scientific group to examine the fringe topic of high frequency gravity waves. The topic of high frequency gravity waves has been associated with alleged alien technologies, like antigravity.
Dr. Hal Puthoff, who worked for various government agencies interested in creating ‘psychic spies’ during the cold war, has been investigating the potential for so-called zero point energy: the extraction of energy from empty space. It is widely assumed by the UFO community that extraterrestrial spacecraft are powered by zero point energy.”
I can’ help but notice this all came about after the governor went to sleep.
A case of a waking dream?
Via the Mysterious Universe:
In The Book of the Damned, Charles Fort opined, “I think we’re property. I should say we belong to something.” Reasonable people disagree about who owns us: an alien race of reptilians or the even more alien breed known as the Illuminati.
Either way, science has recently confirmed that there is in fact a small group of, well, let’s call them overlords, who own pretty much everything in the world.
In a paper described by LiveScience as “.. the first clear picture of the global concentration of financial power,” Stefano Battiston and James Glattfelder, physicists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, use the data crunching tools of physics to analyze financial markets of 48 countries and extract the “backbone” of each country’s financial market. These backbones represented the owners of 80 percent of a country’s market capital, yet consisted of remarkably few shareholders.
“You start off with these huge national networks that are really big, quite dense,” Glattfelder said. “From that you’re able to … unveil the important structure in this original big network. You then realize most of the network isn’t at all important.”
By the physicists’ calculations, The Capital Group Companies are the single most influential controlling shareholder in the world, figuring prominently in the control of capital in 32 of 48 countries considered. Ironically, the company was founded in 1931 by Jonathan Bell Lovelace who came away from the stock market crash almost unscathed because “by 1929 he could see no logical relationship between stock market prices and their underlying values” and got his money out. His timely insight was apparently lost on the majority of present-day traders who brought us the latest financial meltdown. Unless, of course, they were really acting on the orders of Mr. Lovelace’s evil spawn, the reigning New World Order.
So, it seems Charles Fort theory that we are “owned” like “pigs, geese, and cattle” wasn’t so crackpot after all. And in his Fortean wisdom, he also guessed the “whyness” behind our indentured fate: “All this has been known, perhaps for ages, to certain ones upon this earth, a cult or order, members of which function like bellwethers to the rest of us, or as superior slaves or overseers, directing us in accordance with instructions received — from Somewhere else — in our mysterious usefulness.”
So much for the ‘hard’ sciences characterizing the ‘real’ world.
All is a mystery!
Here’s a video about elongated skulls that were discovered during an archeological dig in Siberia.
One usually associates these finds in South America and it’s the first discovered in Siberia.
An archeologist working the dig estimates the age to the 4th century A.D., but it could be older.
UFOs by far are some of the most unexplained mysteries of the 21st Century. Nobody has any hard physical evidence of their existence (but trace evidence at certain sites do) and of course eye-witness accounts still come in.
This week I posted an article from Kevin Randle on how the ‘old geezers’ of UFO study has solved the problem long ago. And I posted some articles against that argument, but not too much. I really wanted to get more responses from other readers about the ETH (nuts and bolts theory/extraterrestrial hypothesis). And I wasn’t disappointed by the answers I got. One of the most prevalent answers I got was about the ‘cryptoterrestrial’ or an earlier life form that evolved intelligence and went through an intellectual ‘singularity’ before humans have ever evolved intelligence.
Thus during the centuries of our existence, these beings have always observed us, occasionally interacting with us at a level that early humans, and even today some would call supernaturally.
And that is the cusp point we are with UFO studies now; the ‘nuts and bolts’ folks and the folks who theorize the phenomenon is more along the lines of the paranormal, the realm of ghosts, spirits, demons, angelic beings or telekenetic formations.
My thoughts lean more toward the nuts and bolts side, simply because at some sites physical trace evidence such as burns, chemical changes and metallic flaking/powders has been collected by MUFON researchers. At paranormal visitations/sites there is usually no trace evidence left at all, other than questionable photographic evidence.
So to me, Clarke’s Third Law still holds up.
That doesn’t mean UFOs are alien in nature, it just means whomever, or whatever is doing this stuff, their tech is like magic to us.
So which brings me to this; what kind of life would possess this magic/tech?
Well, according to Peter Fotis Kapnistos, “Q-life” :
The introduction of modern science finally consigned ghosts and spirits to the fantasy zone of delusions and superstitions. In our day, eminent reasoned thinkers are in charge of our scientific and educational systems. But the swift growth of astrobiology in the past few years has presented an exceptional challenge. Several popular theories have been proposed about the possible basis of alien life. The latest phase in the critical analysis of extraterrestrial life now focuses on what physicist and astrobiologist Paul Davies recently described as “Q-life.”
“A century and a half after Charles Darwin published On The Origin of Species, the origin of life itself remains a stubborn mystery, and is deeply problematic. The simplest known living organism is already stupendously complex, and it is inconceivable that such an entity would arise spontaneously by chance self-assembly. Most researchers suppose that life began either with a set of self-replicating, digital-information-carrying molecules much simpler than DNA, or with a self-catalyzing chemical cycle that stored no precise genetic information but was capable of producing additional quantities of the same chemical mixture. Both these approaches focus on the reproduction of material substances, which is only natural because, after all, known life reproduces by copying genetic material. However, the key properties of life — replication with variation, and natural selection — do not logically require material structures themselves to be replicated. It is sufficient that information is replicated. This opens up the possibility that life may have started with some form of quantum replicator: Q-life, if you like.”
Q-life –– set apart as a “life form without material structure” –– ironically harks back to our ancient belief in spirits. According to Professor Davies, the benefit of simply copying information at the quantum level, instead of building rigid duplicate molecular structures, is speed: “Q-life can therefore evolve many orders of magnitude faster than chemical life,” Davies pointed out. The environment of theoretical Q-life is unclear, but the surfaces of interstellar grains or the interiors of comets could allow “low-temperature environments with rich physical and chemical potential.”
The possibility of a quantum replicator became evident in 2007, when an international panel from the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Max Planck Institute of Germany, and the University of Sydney found that under certain conditions galactic dust “comes alive” in outer space. The panel’s chief researcher, V.N. Tsytovich, announced that microscopic corkscrew shapes (helixes and double helixes) could form “spontaneously” in interstellar space. As they have memory and the power to reproduce, the helical strands show the necessary properties to meet the criteria for life. Since that affirmative disclosure, NASA scientists have given weight to a search for what they now call “weird life” –– organisms that lack DNA or other molecules found in life on Earth.
I have read some articles on Physorg during the year about dusts and plasma in the Universe that take on ‘life-like’ qualities, but it’s hard for me to understand their jargon.
So like most people, I tune it out.
But maybe, just maybe, there just might be K-type 3 or 4 civilizations that are dust formations around black holes, contemplating great thoughts.
Or post-singularity Kurzweillian civilizations?
Wouldn’t they be considered ‘supernatural’ by our reckoning?
I caught up on a couple of Paracast episodes yesterday and I found them very enlightening and entertaining. The first one was broadcast May 14, 2009 and it was Gene and Dave’s first listener confab, featuring long-time listeners and forum commenters BrandonD, Dusty, Fahrusha, Schuyler and Skunkape (They use their actual first names during the show).
A few of these folks are actual experiencers of the paranormal. Good show!
The following show was ‘cast May 24, 2009 featuring Robert Hastings and Don Ecker, long-time Paracast guests and skeptics of the much maligned MJ-12 Documents.
This was an excellent show too, but it basically rehashed some of what these two have posited over the past year or so. Still, this is better quality than what one would normally get from an esoteric site; logical questions, educated guesses and no New Agey bullshite!
Dr. Yuri Labvin, president of the Tunguska Spatial Phenomenon Foundation, insists that an alien spacecraft sacrificed itself to prevent a gigantic meteor from slamming into the planet above Siberia on June 30, 1908.
The result was was the Tunguska event, a massive blast estimated at 15 megatons that downed 80 million trees over nearly 100 square miles. Eyewitnesses reported a bright light and a huge shock wave, but the area was so sparsely populated no one was killed.
Most scientists think the blast was caused by a meteorite exploding several miles above the surface. But Labvin thinks quartz slabs with strange markings found at the site are remnants of an alien control panel, which fell to the ground after the UFO slammed into the giant rock.
“We don’t have any technologies that can print such kind of drawings on crystals,” Labvin told the Macedonian International News Agency. “We also found ferrum silicate that can not be produced anywhere, except in space.”
I never heard of any quartz panels or “ferrum silicate” (iron-glass, glass-iron?) recovered at the Tunguska site before.
But then again, this is being put out by Faux Noise, which makes this kind of hard to believe.
Even this stuff.
