Timothy Green Beckley's Strange Saga: UPDATED EDITION

ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL AND CONTROVERSIAL FIGURES IN UFOLOGY AND THE PARANORMAL SPILLS HIS GUTS!

The CIA used water-boarding techniques on him yet he never broke his code of silence.

The MIB stalked him and yet he didn’t bat an eye (not any one of his three!)

The Dero set up an underground tunnel system in his basement and he uses it to go to work every day.

Tim Beckley - dubbed "Mr. UFO" because only he knows the TRUTH -- has been saving the world from aliens for fifty years. He is the reason they haven't landed on the White House lawn and why you remain safe in your homes.

At the age of ten, Beckley had his first of three UFO sightings. The event stunned him so much that he took out every book on the subject that he could find in the library. He wrote to the local media questioning the policy of silence he was convinced was taking place worldwide.

At fourteen, he was already appearing on national radio and TV, proclaiming the existence of the aliens (whom he now believes to be inter-dimensional to some extent and, as another likely possibility, the product of Nazi wartime technology.)

His bio is so extensive that he would have to run it in several parts.

Beckley started his writing/publishing career in his youth. At age 14, he purchased a mimeograph machine and started putting out “The Interplanetary News Service Report.” Over the years, he has written over 50 books on everything from rock music to the MJ-12 documents. He has been a stringer for the national tabloids, such as the Enquirer, the Star and the Globe, and the editor of over 30 different magazines (most of which never lasted more than a couple of issues). His longest running effort was the newsstand publication UFO UNIVERSE, which went for 11 years. Today he is the president of Inner Light/Global Communications and editor of “The Conspiracy Journal” and “Bizarre Bazaar.” He has been a regular contributor to “Fate Magazine” for over 40 years and more recently to “Open Minds Magazine.”

He is one of the few Americans ever to be invited to speak before closed-door meetings on UFOs presided over by the late Earl of Clancarty at the House of Lords in England. He visited Loch Ness in Scotland while in the UK and went home with the belief that Nessie was somehow connected with the dragons of mythology as well as strange discs engraved on cathedrals and ghostly phenomena. He is also a recognizable figure on the pop culture scene, having produced and starred in several movies under the moniker of Mr. Creepo. He has hung out with the counterculture’s greatest names and promoted rock shows and New Age festivals.

Though his time in the trenches is by no means over yet.

This book, for the most part, contains his early writings. Samples of his column On The Trail Of The Flying Saucers for Ray Palmer’s “Flying Saucers From Other Worlds Magazine” constitute a large part of this work, as well as his top ten articles from the very prestigious but long-defunct newsstand publication “UFO Report,” published up until the mid-1970s. There are also clippings galore about his career and other memorabilia that will have his fans as well as newcomers to his work scratching their heads in wonderment and perhaps letting out with a giggle or two.

One can only wonder how the next juncture of his life will pan out. . .

For subscribers of the Conspiracy Journal Newsletter this book is on sale for the special price of only $9.00 (plus $5.00 shipping).  This offer will not last long so ORDER TODAY!

Sea Levels Will Rise Two Feet Within 70 Years

Sea levels will rise two feet within just 70 years and eight feet by the year 2200, according to a new study which suggests hundreds of coastal cities face being wiped out within a matter of generations.

Scientists now claim we have awoken a 'sleeping giant' and that sea levels won't stop rising until they are between 25 to 30 feet higher than now.

Alarmingly those predictions are based on the assumption that levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere remain at what they are today.

Some 600 million people currently live within 10m of present-day sea level and that area generates rougly 10 per cent of the world's total GDP.

The combined effects of rising sea levels coupled with land subsidence and population growth mean that by the 2070s, the population exposed to flooding risk may have tripled.

Researchers found current rate of sea-level rise are roughly twice as any other period between ice ages.

Meanwhile levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and other factors that cause temperatures to rise, are increasing 10 up to times faster than at any other period before the industrial revolution.

Eelco Rohling, a climate scientist at the Australian National University in Canberra, told NBC News: 'We have awoken a sleeping giant, he is now here to stay.'

The scientists sat that as the earth continues to warm, the major ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica will begin to melt, a process that takes a long time to start and stop.

The findings, reported in the journal Scientific Reports, are based on atmospheric carbon dioxide levels stabilising at today's level of 400 parts per million.

But if they continue to rise then even ice that is considered stable, such as the East Antarctic Ice Sheet, could also begin to destabilise.

According to Rohling, if levels hit a worst case scenario of 1,000 parts per million, then 'all bets are off'.

- A PROJECTION OF OURSELVES DEPARTMENT -

Are We Living in a Hologram?

Are we living in a hologram? Physicists believe our universe could just be a projection of another cosmos

Holographic principle claims gravity comes from thin, vibrating strings

These strings are holograms of events that take place in a flatter cosmos

According to this theory, everything we experience can be described as events that take place in this flatter location

This is the first time the validity of the model has been mathematically tested

THE HOLOGRAPHIC PRINCIPLE

The holographic principle claims gravity in the universe comes from thin, vibrating strings.

These strings are holograms of events that take place in a simpler, flatter cosmos.

The principle suggests that, like the security chip on your credit card, there is a two-dimensional surface that contains all the information needed to describe a three-dimensional object – which in this case is our universe.

In essence, the theory claims that data containing a description of a volume of space – such as a human or a comet – could be hidden in a region of this flattened, ‘real’ version of the universe.

In a black hole, for instance, all the objects that ever fall into it would be entirely contained in surface fluctuations, almost like a piece of computer memory on contained in a chip.

In a larger sense, the theory suggests that the entire universe can be seen as a ‘two-dimensional structure projected onto a cosmological horizon’ – or in simpler terms, a projection.

If we could understand the laws that govern physics on that distant surface, the principle suggests we would grasp all there is to know about reality.

The holographic principle suggests that, like the security chip on your credit card, there is a two-dimensional surface that contains all the information needed to describe a three-dimensional object – which in this case is our universe.

In essence, the principle claims that data containing a description of a volume of space – such as a human or a comet – could be hidden in a region of this flattened, ‘real’ version of the universe.

In a black hole, for instance, all the objects that ever fall into it would be entirely contained in surface fluctuations.

This means that the objects would be stored almost as ‘memory’ or fragment of data rather than a physical object in existence.
In a larger sense, the theory suggests that the entire universe can be seen as a ‘two-dimensional structure projected onto a cosmological horizon’ – or in simpler terms, the universe we believe we inhabit is a 3D projection of a 2D alternate universe.

In a paper posted on the arXiv repository, Yoshifumi Hyakutake of Ibaraki University in Japan calculated the internal energy of a black hole in an attempt provide mathematical evidence for this holographic principle.

In addition to this he explored the boundaries of a specific black hole as well as the effects of ‘virtual particles’, a type of particle that is believed to continuously pop in and out of existence.

In a separate paper, Professor Hyakutake calculated the energy contained inside of the alternate flatter cosmos with no gravity.
Surprisingly, the computer calculations of the theoretical universe and the black hole’s boundaries matched, providing what some say is ‘compelling’ evidence of the dual nature of the universe.

Professor Maldacena has said that the numerical proof that these two seemingly disparate worlds are identical provides hope that the gravitational properties of our universe can someday be explained by quantum theory.

- STRANGE CREATURES FROM TIME AND SPACE DEPARTMENT -

Magickal Beasts, Ghostly Animals and Wolves Walking Like Men
By Sean Casteel

Down through the ages, magickal beasts have played a prominent role in the folklore and mythology of civilizations worldwide. The Bible even records that a donkey spoke in a human tongue at the behest of the Lord. In a world filled with paranormal phenomena of all kinds, our animal friends have sometimes wrought apparent miracles and far exceeded our normal expectations of what a beast is capable of.

A new book from Global Communications called “Mythical, Magickal Beasts And Beings” examines this subject from a variety of angles. It begins with a chapter by psychic Maria D’Andrea in which she discusses, among many other things, mermaids and mermen. This is a phenomenon so old that there exist cave drawings depicting men standing on the ocean shore while mermen swim in the sea and gaze at earthly women.

“Mermaids and mermen,” D’Andrea writes, “are considered to be elementals, from the Kingdom of Nature. They are part human and part fish. The bottom part is fish and the top looks either like a handsome male or beautiful female. They can be kind and very helpful to people.”

D’Andrea recounts stories where mermaids and mermen guided people lost at sea, sometimes by projecting a haunting song that the sailors followed to safety. They

disappear afterwards, leaving the rescued seamen wondering if they had really witnessed the strange creatures at all. Conversely, there are legends of mermaids leading sailors to their deaths on jagged rocks by singing an irresistible song. As elementals, they can reportedly also shape shift and appear completely human, legs and all. They are then said to mate with humans and produce children, who by the time they reach puberty begin to become aware of their own supernatural abilities.

Psychic and physical vampires, the siblings of dragons, and a giant chicken leg are also covered in D’Andrea’s chapter, providing a well-rounded overview of some of the stranger magickal animals stories available.

After Penny Melis’ excellent history of faeries and little people, I contribute stories about the appearances of ghostly cats and dogs, which is a more frequent occurrence than you might think.

Opinion is divided as to whether our animal friends have a soul that survives after death. The notion may strike even those who consider themselves spiritual and class themselves as believers in God and the afterlife as abhorrent, since only humankind, in their belief system, truly possesses the God-given attribute of a personal soul. But in spite of that kind of human-centered cynicism, there are a great many who believe that animals do possess a soul, one that lives on after physical death and even returns from some ghostly netherworld to appear to the living for any number of reasons.

There is, for example, the story of a cat haunting a lighthouse. According to a newspaper called “The Cleveland Plain Dealer,” “For years, volunteers who worked evenings in the lighthouse museum in Fairport Harbor spoke of an eerie presence in the darkened tower. Curator Pamela Brent swears that on several occasions she saw the

wispy gray spirit of a cat. Skeptics dismissed the ghost story as ridiculous – until this winter. Workers installing air conditioning vents discovered the mummified remains of a gray cat in a crawlspace. Brent said that the wife of one lighthouse tender kept several cats in the quarters. They believe the cat unearthed during the winter renovations was trapped for years in the crawlspace, somehow preserved in the cold, dark basement.”

Brent said that from time to time she would glimpse the cat skittering across the floor like it was playing. One night, as she lay in bed, she felt the presence of the cat jump on her and was even aware of its weight pressing on her. She was at first quite frightened, but she said she has come to accept ghosts, even ghostly cats, as a natural part of the world.

There is also the 1931 story of a family in the UK who discovered a mongoose scratching and making rustling noises behind the wooden walls of their farmhouse. At first, they thought it was a rat, but then the creature began to make odd noises, including growling like a dog and gurgling like a baby. The creature soon revealed the ability to speak and introduced itself as Gef, calling itself a mongoose and claiming to have been born in India in 1852. Only the family’s daughter was able to see Gef clearly, and she described him as being the size of a small rat with yellowish fur and a large bushy tale. A real Indian mongoose, however, is much larger than a rat and does not have a bushy tale.

In any case, Gef at times claimed to be “an extra clever mongoose,” and “an earthbound spirit,” and “a ghost in the form of a weasel.” He once told the family, “I am a freak. I have hands and I have feet, and if you saw me you’d faint, you’d be petrified, mummified, turned into a stone or a pillar of salt!”

In common with many poltergeists, Gef had an uneven temper, threw objects at people, and made exaggerated claims about his powers. But he generally remained friendly to the family and even spied on the neighbors for them, reporting back what he had learned.

After the story of Gef became popular in the British tabloid press, several psychic investigators visited the farm to see for themselves. One in particular said he believed the family was “sincere, frank and simple,” and left believing their claims were true.

And what of the Biblical talking donkey mentioned at the beginning of this article? The Book of Numbers, Chapter 22, relates the famous story of Balaam’s ass. Balaam was an evil figure of boundless greed whose initial intent was to bear witness against the people of Israel and their God in exchange for wealth from their enemies. As he left on his donkey to do the foul deed, an angel appeared to him.

Beginning with verse 21, “So Balaam rose in the morning and saddled his ass, and went with the princes of Moab. But God’s anger was kindled because he went; and the angel of the Lord took his stand in the way as his adversary. Now he was riding on the ass, and his two servants were with him. And the ass saw the angel of the Lord standing in the road, with a drawn sword in his hand; and the ass turned aside out of the road, and went into the field; and Balaam struck the ass, to turn her into the road.”

After Balaam repeatedly struck the ass, the poor beast, still afraid of the angel, laid itself down beneath its cruel master and a conversation ensued.

“Then the Lord opened the mouth of the ass,” the Biblical account continues, “and she said to Balaam, ‘What have I done to you, that you struck me these three times?’ And Balaam said to the ass, ‘Because you have made sport of me. I wish I had a

sword in my hand, for then I would kill you.’ And the ass said to Balaam, ‘Am I not your ass, upon which you have ridden all your life long to this day? Was I ever accustomed to do so to you?’ And he said, ‘No.’”

At that point, the Lord opened the eyes of Balaam and revealed the angel, sword in hand, standing nearby. The angel asked Balaam why he had struck the donkey again and again. The angel then told Balaam that had the donkey not had the presence of mind to turn aside from the path of the angel, the angel would have angrily killed Balaam and let the donkey live. Balaam then repented of his evil and, in a complete reversal of character, told the enemies of Israel that he could now only speak the words that God put into his mouth. He blessed the Lord’s Chosen People instead of cursing them. It is easy to imagine that hearing one’s own donkey speak in human language would put the fear of God into anyone.

Returning to the subject of ghostly animal appearances, the next section of “Mythical, Magickal Beasts And Beings” is a reprint of the book “Animal Ghosts, Or Animal Hauntings And The Hereafter,” by Elliot O’Donnell. The book is a treasure trove of ghostly animal anecdotes, ranging from cats to dogs to horses, and even pigs, elephants and birds are included. The book is a classic of its kind, and the language is old-fashioned in an elegant way, with O’Donnell arguing throughout that the members of the animal kingdom are just as possessed of immortal souls as the so-called “superior” human race.

“Consider the case of one of our four-footed friends – the dog,” writes O’Donnell in his introduction. “The faithful, affectionate, obedient and forgiving dog, the dog who is so often called upon to stand all sorts of rough treatment, and is shot or poisoned, if,

provoked beyond endurance, he at last rounds on his persecutors and bites. And the cat – the timid, peaceful cat who is mauled and all but pulled in two by cruel children, and beaten to jelly when in sheer agony and fright it scratches. Reflect again on the cow and sheep, fed only to supply our wants; shouted at and kicked, if, when nearly scared out of their senses, they wander off the track; and pole-axed, or done to death in some equally atrocious manner when the sickening demand for flesh food is at its height.

“And yet, you say, these innocent, unoffending – and I say, martyred – animals are to have no future, no compensation. Monstrous! Absurd! It is an effrontery to common sense, philosophy – anything, everything. It is a damned lie, damned bigotry, damned nonsense. The whole animal world will live again, and it will be man – spoilt, presumptuous, degenerate man – who will not participate in another life, unless he very much improves.”

O’Donnell’s argument implies that animals are equally worthy of returning to haunt the living because of the horrible injustices they have suffered, to seek vengeance on the human world that subjected them to a cruel death or a lifetime of mistreatment. Whatever unrest of the soul drives a deceased human being to revisit the locale of their unhappy passing can also make an animal walk the halls of its former home to bear witness to its torment.

There is also a wealth of supernatural animal information to be found in the Global Communications book “Timothy Green Beckley’s Big Book Of Werewolves, In Reality, In Folklore, In Cinema And In Lust.” The book has a chapter by Brad Steiger in which he examines stories of real-life vampires, werewolves and ghouls that are not presented as simple entertaining fiction, but based on factual, historical accounts going

back centuries in some cases. On the subject of werewolves, Steiger gives us his usual no nonsense approach.

“During the Middle Ages,” Steiger writes, “and the period known as that of the Great Witch Mania, it was natural to explain the deviations of men in terms of demonology. Prevalent at the same time was a belief in the transformation of men into wolves (perhaps the source of the modern designation for a certain lascivious breed of male creature) and other carnivorous animals.

“The belief that a creature half-human and half-animal was unholy reaches back into dim antiquity. Thus, the ancient Israelites were instructed through the Book of Leviticus: ‘And you should not lie with any beast and defile yourself with it, neither shall any woman give herself to a beast to lie with it.’ Such practices were associated with worship of the pagan deity Moloch, and any offspring of such a union was classed as an evil spirit.”

Perhaps that evil spirit offspring of the coupling of a human and a wolf is manifested as a werewolf, who is said to roam the surrounding country committing murder, rape and cannibalism. The reality of the existence of such supernatural beasts was not doubted by even the political and religious authorities of Europe centuries ago. Steiger recounts the story of a man burned at the stake in Dole, France, in 1573, by order of the king. The man had been accused of killing a young girl with his “paws” and teeth while he was in the form of a wolf. After the murder, the werewolf then allegedly ate parts of the child’s flesh, taking some of the meat home to his “wife.” As the werewolf burned alive, Steiger writes, he “screamed his way into oblivion with a cry of pain that may very well have come from either man or beast.”

A pair of interviews I did with experts on real-life werewolves are also part of the book. In a conversation with Linda Godfrey, a journalist in Wisconsin, she told me how she became aware that several local people in her native Elkhorn were seeing some kind of wolf-like creature that walked on two legs around a stretch of road called Bray Road. The people had phoned in reports to the Country Animal Control Center Officer, who had even begun a folder marked “werewolf” because nobody knew what else to call the creature.

After interviewing the witnesses, Godfrey was convinced they were sincere and not trying to pull off a hoax of some kind. She wrote an article called “The Beast of Bray Road,” which ran in December of 1991, and the phenomenon has never stopped since.

One woman who spoke to Godfrey said she was driving in the area at night and noticed a creature kneeling by the side of the road in a way that an animal “really can’t normally manage.” It was using its paws to hold up what looked like a chunk of road kill that it was eating from. She was very frightened, she said, and reported it to the Animal Control Officer. Another woman thought she had hit something with her car, and when she got out to look, this “thing” came running at her. She could hear the heavy pounding of its feet, but only its hind feet. It was running upright at her car. She jumped back in her vehicle and sped off, but not before the animal lunged at her, leaving evenly spaced scratch marks on the car that Godfrey was able to verify.

Godfrey’s accounts of the werewolf sightings were reported in the national media, including the television program “Inside Edition,” and she quickly became one of the few experts on werewolves, a term she disdains, by the way.

“I like to call it a ‘man-wolf’ instead,” she said, “because it has less Hollywood baggage. ‘Werewolf’ implies that it’s a human changing into a wolf. So much of what we think of as the werewolf legend began in Hollywood. The full moon, the silver bullets, all that sort of thing.”

Among the possibilities Godfrey considers is that perhaps some strain of canine has managed to adapt a more upright stance because it gives them advantages in running around in swamps, for instance, which might be easier on two legs than four. And it’s more efficient to carry prey, she adds, in your upper arms than to drag it away in your mouth. Being able to adapt in that manner might have also carried with it an increase in general intelligence for the wolf/dog species.

Whatever the creatures are, they consistently project an aura of evil and meanness, according to the witnesses Godfrey has spoken to, who nearly always mention suffering intense fear in the presence of the man-wolf.

“They feel that it’s glaring at them,” she said, “that it’s sort of sneering. That it’s somehow getting across to them that it has the upper hand and that it could follow them or do bad things to them if it wanted to. But in most cases, once they’re good and scared, what it does is make its escape. Whether it’s been chasing them or just watching from the roadside, there’s almost always some kind of cover, and as soon as it can get to that cover, it just tries to get away.”

People also report feeling that the man-wolf is communicating telepathically with them, not in literal words, but by sending mental impressions. The message is again typically a threatening one, unlike the more benign communications people claim to have received from Bigfoot, for example.

I also spoke to well-known British writer Nick Redfern, who had lots of werewolf stories to tell from his native country. One case from the early 1970s involved a family in the town of Hexam, in northern England, who reported seeing a manlike figure, hairy, but with a large, imposing, wolf-like head. This happened on several occasions and was accompanied by poltergeist-type activity, with “the creature just appearing and vanishing in the blink of an eye.” Redfern said there is more of an occultish feel to this account as opposed to their being a real flesh-and-blood creature involved.

Redfern also experienced a werewolf visitation himself. As he lay in bed next to his wife, around three in the morning, in what he called a “semi-comatose” state, he began to see in his mind the image of a wolf-like creature walking on two legs down the corridor to his bedroom. It seemed to be wearing a long cloak with a hood, with its wolfish face poking out of the hood. The dread in Redfern increased as the creature got closer, and the frightened Brit found himself unable to move. The creature entered the bedroom and emitted a fast, guttural growl that Redfern says almost seemed to express a form of language, as though the growl had the inflections of a human speaking voice.

Redfern managed to reach full consciousness and got a fleeting glimpse of “this thing just vanishing backwards into the hallway.” But a very oppressive atmosphere lingered in the Redferns’ apartment for the next two days, which they remedied with a “cleansing ceremony” that involved the use of the spice sage.

“A lot of people roll their eyes when I tell them that story,” Redfern said, “but that’s honestly from the heart how it happened.”

Attempts to conjure a werewolf from whatever domain they reside in are a continuing part of Redfern’s occult experiments. Do we somehow conjure mind monsters by externalizing our fears or buried desires? Or can we open doorways into some other dimension with our minds without consciously realizing it?

These mysteries and more are examined in “Mythical, Magickal Beasts and Beings” and “Timothy Green Beckley’s Big Book Of Werewolves.” You may never look at your pet cat or dog in quite the same way again.

Peaches Geldof Believes Her House is Haunted

The 24-year-old star took a photo of herself in the bath with her 20-month-old son, Astala, and when she checked the image she was shocked to discover a set of discoloured fingers by her shoulder.

There is no explanation as to why the eerie digits are in the snap, and the former model believes the hand belongs to a woman who committed suicide more than 100 years ago after she delivered a stillborn baby.

Peaches - who lives in the property in Kent, South East England, with her husband Thomas Cohen, Astala, and their other son, eight-month-old Phaedra - said: ''The house was built in the 1920s by a rich man and his pregnant wife. However, his wife had a stillborn baby and was so grief-stricken she went mad. She apparently drowned herself in the bath.''

She added: ''The presence I feel isn't malignant or angry, rather maternal and friendly - the house has a lovely atmosphere.

"Maybe she's just making her presence known because she loves having babies around."

Peaches has started to leave her door open when she sleeps at night in case the "ghost comes back."

The blonde beauty - the daughter of Bob Geldof and the late Paula Yates - decided to investigate the history of the house after posting the spooky snap on her Instagram account accompanied with the caption: "Close up shot of the mystery ghost hand in pic I took of Astala and me in the bath!! And no that isn't my hand - one of mine was round his waist to hold him during the photo, the other holding the camera to take the shot. Also the hand is around ym shoulder so totally weird angle if I did it myself. How terrifying!! (sic)"

A fan, Amber Micki, commented saying: "You should totally look up the history of your house and it's grounds!"

The Poltergeist Effect: Key to All Paranormal?
By Stephen Wagner

If a stressed individual can cause poltergeist activity, can a stressed society unconsciously create such phenomena as ghosts, UFOs, and monsters?

OF ALL PHENOMENA that are considered paranormal, poltergeist activity has been the most fascinating to me because there are physical manifestations. These are not fleeting apparitions or elusive shadow people glimpsed in one's peripheral vision, these are physical acts:


    Objects fly from tabletops
    Doors and cabinets slam open and shut
    Furniture is moved or even thrown about
    Stuff breaks and people are pushed and pinched
    Water drips inexplicably from ceilings
    Stones rain down from clear skies
    Objects - apports - appear out of thin air

In addition to these, there are unexplained crashing sounds, wall pounding, music, and odors from unidentifiable sources. Not all of these things happen in every poltergeist case, but these things (and much more) do happen and have been documented in case after case for centuries. There are multiple witnesses to these events, including scientists and police officers, and many volumes have been written about them.

I have witnessed first-hand a highly stressed person who caused sparks to shoot out of wall sockets and thick glass to shatter.

While for a long time these effects were attributed to ghosts and demons, most (not all) paranormal researchers think that these amazing phenomena are not caused by the spirit world, but by the minds of the person or people involved (called agents), who are usually under some physical, emotional or psychological stress.

MIND OVER MATTER

Think of it: the most spectacular - and arguably best documented - of all phenomena is caused by consciousness, usually working on a subconscious level. Consciousness manipulating matter. We do not yet understand how this works. Perhaps it has something to do with quantum mechanics, or perhaps some other mysterious effect we cannot yet comprehend. We don't have the mathematics for it.

Anyone who has seriously and open-mindedly investigated the phenomena, however, cannot deny that they occur. We don't yet know how to fit them into our rationalist, scientific view of the world. That is why the skeptics deny their existence: "It can't be real, therefore it isn't." But this is a very limited view of the world (and of reality), and history has shown time and again that those who deny the "impossible" ("space flight is impossible") have been proved wrong.

So, if consciousness, working on some level that we do not understand, can generate the amazing range of physical phenomena recorded in poltergeist cases, of what else is it capable?

A possible answer to that question may be that it is capable of almost anything. Perhaps it is capable of manifesting a wide array of phenomena that have proved unexplained and elusive, including:

    Ghosts and apparitions
    UFOs and aliens, including abductions
    Creatures like Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster and Mothman
    Bizarre cases of missing time and slips in time
    Miracles and religious apparitions
    "Demonic" manifestations and possession

TULPAS AND CREATED REALITY

Perhaps all of these things that elude and frustrate researchers are not things outside of ourselves; perhaps they are generated and brought into the physical world - if only for a short time - by our own consciousness. They are all in our heads; or maybe more accurately, out of our heads (or wherever our consciousness lies).

In Tibetan Buddhism, such thought forms or creations are called "tulpas". As anthropologist Walter Evans-Wentz describes it , "The process consists of giving palpable being to a visualization, in very much the same manner as an architect gives concrete expression in three dimensions to his abstract concepts after first having given them expression in the two-dimensions of his blue-print."

The difference with the paranormal phenomena described above is that we might be creating them on an unconscious level rather than consciously. But the intention for them exists in the deepest fears and highest desires of an individual or large groups (even entire cultures) of people.

Let me emphasize that because these phenomena might be brought about by consciousness does not make them any less real. What is reality, after all, other than all that we perceive with our senses? And that reality might only be temporary, which accounts for the elusive nature of these phenomena.

It has been rightly argued that it is not helpful to explain an unexplained phenomenon by offering another unexplained phenomenon. And I suppose that's what I am doing here. But it is a way, perhaps, to think about these phenomena in a different way and to consider that they all might have a common genesis.

If the unconscious mind can cause a heavy piece of furniture to slide across a room on its own, could it not just as easily create an apparition of recently deceased grandma, or a shadow person, or any of the other variety of ghostly entities reported? Could it not even relay a message of comfort the living witness needs to hear? Perhaps it could even relate knowledge unknown to the witness by tapping into the greater "collective unconscious."

Such a power could cause the manifestation of a "residual haunting" by triggering the repeating event that is somehow recorded on the environment (again, by consciousness). "Intelligent hauntings" could be created by the desire of the individual(s) to encounter them. Let me say again, this does not mean they are imaginary.

If you don't think this is possible, read about the Philip Experiment, in which the Toronto Society for Psychical Research "created" a ghost along with all of its ghostly phenomena.

Electronic voice phenomena (EVP) perhaps are not the voices of spiritual entities at all, but the creations of the subconscious minds of the paranormal investigators - unconscious thought physically encoded in the voice recorder.

UFOs AND ALIENS

In his 1958 book Flying Saucers, Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung famously speculated on the psychic impact of the "modern myth" of UFOs. "In the threatening situation of the world today," Jung wrote, "when people are beginning to see that everything is at stake, the projection-creating fantasy soars beyond the realm of earthly organizations and powers into the heavens, into interstellar space, where the rulers of human fate, the gods, once had their abode in the planets."

Jung wasn't necessarily saying that UFOs are the physical manifestations of the unconscious mind... but could they be? This would account for the improbable appearance of extraterrestrial craft in our skies that can maneuver at impossible angles and zoom away at impossible speeds.

Look into the bizarre high strangeness of many UFO and alien encounters and you may be looking into the "projection-creating fantasy" generated by the complicated psychology of mankind - and fully capable of radar hits, landing impressions, and even scoop marks on the skins of abductees.

BIGFOOT AND OTHER CREATURES

Could Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster and the rest of the fantastic menagerie of crypto-creatures be tulpas? They have been seen, smelled, tracked and even photographed, yet they remain frustratingly out of reach.

If they are physical creations of our collective imaginations, this would explain why they are elusive... why Bigfoot tracks sometimes seem to just end, as if the creature vanished into this air. And if a poltergeist can make it rain in a house, then the Bigfoot manifestation could leave footprints in mud and strands of hair on tree bark.

ALL THE REST OF IT

You get the idea - from time slips to religious phenomena to so-called demonic activity - they all could be the most far-out creations of consciousness.

Just as a deeply stressed agent can cause all manner of science-defying havoc in a poltergeist case, so might a profoundly stressed, psychologically complex society generate ghosts, UFOs, monsters and other phenomena into our reality, yet do not allow examination with laboratory instruments.

The older I get and the more I read not only about paranormal phenomena but about mainstream science as well, the more it becomes obvious to me that we know next to nothing about the true nature of reality, our place in the universe, and our improbable existence on this tiny planet in the unimaginable vastness of the cosmos. All is mystery.

Lloyd Pye Has Died
By Loren Coleman

In recent days, Lloyd Pye has messaged his friends that his tumor has returned and it was not an “if but when” situation, after treatments at Klinik Marinus in Germany.

Despite any disagreements he might have had with others in cryptozoology, he was a gentle and friendly man. I met him in Texas, at a Bigfoot conference, and found him to be a sincere, cordial gentleman, committed to his findings and theories.

Now word comes that Pye has died on December 9, 2013.

This was confirmed via this posting on Lloyd Pye’s Facebook page:

    This is Lloyd’s nephew. Lloyd Pye passed away at approximately 6:15 PM CT USA. Lloyd was surrounded by family and died in his mother’s arms. The family is asking for privacy at this time as we deal with the loss. We will post additional information in the near future. Thank you to all of his friends and fans for your support, prayers and love. He loved you all deeply.

Lloyd Anthony Pye (born 1946), according to Wikipedia, is an American author and paranormal researcher best known for his promotion of the Starchild skull, which he claims is the relic of a human-alien hybrid although DNA tests have shown it is from a human male. He also promotes the ideas that cryptozoological creatures such as Bigfoot are real and that aliens intervened to create life on Earth.

His first book That Prosser Kid (1977), a fictional account of college football, was said to have “achieved considerable recognition” by the Continuum Encyclopedia of American Literature, but was called “lively but unoriginal” by the Boston Globe. His 1988 book Mismatch was called a “novel that ought to go on your must read list” by Deseret News.

In addition to authoring books, Pye also gives lectures and has made television appearances in support of his ideas on The Learning Channel, National Geographic Channel, Extra, Animal Planet, and Richard & Judy in the United Kingdom.Pye has stated that he believes Bigfoot exists, as well as the similar Mongolian cryptid the Almas.

In the late 1990s, Pye obtained a curiously shaped skull from a couple in El Paso, Texas that he believes is an alien-human hybrid and proof that humans are descended from extraterrestrial beings he calls “terraformers”. DNA tests show that the skull is from a human male. American clinical neurologist Steven Novella believes the skull belongs to a child who suffered from hydrocephalus.

    That Prosser Kid (fiction, Arbor House, 1977) about a redshirted college football player, republished as A Darker Shade of Red (2007, Bell Lap Books)
    Mismatch, (fiction, Dell, 1988), about computer hacking and warfare.

Pye was born in Houma, Louisiana, to Lloyd A. Pye Sr., an optometrist (died 2007), and Nina; Lloyd Pye had three brothers. He earned a football scholarship to Tulane University in New Orleans as a running back/punter from 1964–1968. He was the Tulane Green Wave football team’s leading punter 1967-1968. He graduated in 1968 with a B.S. in psychology and joined the U.S. Army as a military intelligence specialist.

In 2013 Pye was diagnosed with cancer and retired from active research and promotion of the Starchild skull.
