- TIME TRAVEL IS POSSIBLE DEPARTMENT -

How to Send a Message to the Past
By Tara MacIsaac

At the Follow the Truth: The Conspiracy Show Summit in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada, on Nov. 16, Dr. Ron Mallett will talk about his work on sending information into the past. The summit will bring together researchers exploring the power of the mind, past lives, time travel, and more.

Dr. Ron Mallett is a celebrated theoretical physicist at the University of Connecticut, but he was once a little boy with a copy of “The Time Machine” by H.G. Wells. Mallett’s father died when Mallett was 10 years old, and when he read this book a year later the idea of traveling back in time to prevent his father’s death gripped his imagination.

It wasn’t a passing fancy. He studied physics in college, with a special interest in black holes. He figured that understanding black holes could help him understand time travel. At the time, black holes were considered “crazy, but at least it was a legitimate crazy,” Mallett said; time travel, on the other hand, was considered “crazy crazy.”

“I used black holes as a cover story,” he said with a laugh.

Albert Einstein described time as a 4th dimension and he said that time and space are connected, thus physicists talk of space-time. It is said that space-time bends and twists around rotating black holes. Mallett wondered if he could replicate these conditions here on Earth.

A couple of coincidences helped him figure out how.

When he graduated college, he wanted to start his research right away, but it was a time of recession and colleges weren’t readily hiring. He ended up working with lasers, learning about their cutting capabilities for industrial use. After two years of this work, he got the job he originally wanted at the University of Connecticut.

To understand the progress of his research, one must understand two of Einstein’s theories:

1. According to Einstein’s Special Relativity Theory, time is affected by speed. It’s already been proven in the lab that subatomic particles can be hurled into the future at high speeds. An accelerator has been used on particles known to disintegrate after a certain amount of time. The particles appear in the future, in a young state, without having disintegrating over the usual time period. The particles’ aging slows down as they speed up.

2. According to Einstein’s General Relativity Theory, time is also affected by gravity. It’s already been proven that clocks on satellites in orbit show a slight difference in time than clocks on Earth if they aren’t adjusted to compensate.

Dr. Mallett knew that gravity could affect time, and that light could create gravity. He pondered and pondered, and then his “Eureka” moment hit. Lasers!

He remembered from his earlier work with lasers that a ring laser creates circulating light. “Maybe circulating light will do the same thing to gravity that a rotating black hole would do,” he thought. He wondered if a ring laser could be used to twist space-time into a loop—present, future, and back to the past.

A concept illustration of how a time machine could look. The lasers would create a circular movement of light, bending the time-space within the machine. (Screenshot of footage in Professor Chandra Roychoudhuri's laboratory, courtesy of Dr. Ron Mallett)

If the laser could create such a loop, information could be sent to the past in binary form. Neutrons spin, Mallet explained. A string of neutrons could be arranged so that some are up and some are down, representing 1s and 0s respectively, thus creating a binary message.

If Dr. Mallett had found the research job he wanted right out of college, he wouldn’t have worked with lasers and gained this knowledge that helped him so many years later. “I had something in my background that my colleagues who work in this area didn’t, so it was having that in my background that led me to that breakthrough, which I may not otherwise have had,” Dr. Mallett said.

Now for the hard part—testing this theory in mathematical equations. That’s where the second coincidence came in. Dr. Mallett was diagnosed with a heart condition shortly before he was struck with his inspiration to use ring lasers for time travel. He was on medical leave from many of his duties at work.

Without having to teach classes or perform committee duties, he was free to concentrate wholeheartedly on his research.

“If I hadn’t had that time, I don’t know if I would have been able to not only have the breakthrough, but also the time to work it out,” he said.

It took him six months to prove that circulating light could twist space. It took another couple of years to prove that the twisting of space could also twist time. Though it was a long, laborious effort, Dr. Mallett noted that it took Einstein 10 years to show that gravity affects time.

“It was worth it … to actually see the equations and to see that they predict that [time travel is possible] is a thrilling thing,” Dr. Mallett said.The next thrill came when a refereed journal published his first article on time travel.

With trepidation, he presented his findings to relativity experts at a conference held by The International Society on General Relativity and Gravitation. He was particularly nervous to talk about time travel in front of Dr. Bryce DeWitt, a prominent no-nonsense physicist who worked with Einstein. Dr. DeWitt spoke right before Dr. Mallett, a tough act to follow.

At the end of Dr. Mallett’s presentation, however, Dr. DeWitt got up in front of the whole audience and said, “I don’t know if you’ll get a chance to see your father again, but he’d be proud of you.”

In one short sentence, years of labor were validated, his aspirations realized, and his initial purpose fulfilled. Though he’d dreamt as a child of preventing his father’s death, he feels the discoveries he’s made, motivated by his father’s memory, are more than sufficient.

His father was the object of great love and admiration in the young Dr. Mallett’s life. His mother worked hard to support Mallett and his three siblings in the Bronx borough of New York City. It wasn’t easy especially in the 1950s as an African American woman to earn a living and the family fell into poverty. He realizes how hard it must have been for her, only 30 years old at the time, to lose her husband to a heart attack so young and to work to raise her children.

Dr. Mallett wrote about his personal journey as well as his discovery in his book, “Time Traveler: A Scientist’s Personal Mission to Make Time Travel a Reality.”

How Long Will It Take to Make a Time Machine?

We must make it clear that Dr. Ron Mallett is not tinkering in his garage with a Delorean and a flux capacitor like Doc Brown in “Back to the Future.” He’s a theoretical physicist, not an experimental physicist. That means he’s developed the mathematical evidence that time travel to the future should work, but it remains to experimental physicists to get the hardware and build the time machine.

That could cost some $250,000 just to get started, he said. The $250,000 would cover the feasibility study, and the feasibility study would determine how much the experimental phase would cost.

Donations are being made to the University of Connecticut Foundation. “Over time nearly $11,000 in funding has been received from a great many generous contributors ranging from $15 to $25 from enthusiastic middle school and high school students to $500 from a concerned young couple to $1,000 from a grieving parent,” Dr. Mallett said.

He expects that once the feasibility study starts, the whole process would take about five years.

Philosophical Questions

If one day a time machine is built based on Dr. Mallett’s design, what may happen when the switch is flipped? A message from the future could instantly appear.

The time machine would only be able to send information along the timeline from when the machine is first turned on until when it is turned off. So, if it stays on for 100 years, binary messages could be sent to any time within those 100 years. Someone from the future may know that the machine will be activated on a given date and send a message through to that time.

In a BBC-Discovery Channel documentary featuring Dr. Mallett’s work, the narrator said that with time travel, “At stake is nothing less than what it means to be a human being.”

If we could go back in time and fix all the suffering of the world, if we could go back and prevent the bad things that happen in our lives, what would that do for personal growth and wisdom? How would our society change?

Dr. Mallett said the movie “Time Cop,” starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, explored this idea well. Van Damme’s character was tasked with regulating time travel so that people couldn’t use it for their own purposes. His wife had died and he had to restrain himself from going back to save her.

“It’s up to society to decide how time travel is used, it’s not up to an individual,” Dr. Mallett said. The Large Hadron Collider, the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator, is run by a consortium of nations. He imagines a time machine would be controlled in a similar manner. He doesn’t imagine time machines will become any more common than nuclear reactors. People won’t have time machines in their backyards for casual use.

For Dr. Mallett, the best use of time travel would be to warn people of natural disasters—to prevent, for example, the thousands of deaths caused by tsunamis and hurricanes.

- THE PARANORMAL BEHIND THE HOLIDAY DEPARTMENT -

Halloween: A Scary Season Rooted in Reality
By Melissa Newman

EVERY YEAR, AMID the excitement of Halloween-related fun, conversations commonly turn toward scary and unnerving talk of the mysterious world of paranormal and supernatural phenomena. Unlike the entertaining “safe scares” that Halloween brings, for those who encounter “real paranormal phenomena,” the encounters can be truly terrifying and even life-changing. And while these otherworldly phenomena have been a part of the human experience since the dawn of humankind – and, incidentally, is where Halloween originates – not even western society’s modern-day cynical culture of scientific analysis could dismiss and suppress the existence of these elusive phenomena. On the contrary, whether you are a believer or a hardened skeptic, an avalanche of experiences involving paranormal and supernatural phenomena continues to be reported worldwide.

According to several polls and surveys conducted around the world, belief in the paranormal and supernatural is at an all time high and shows no evidence of decline. In the U.S. alone, a recent Gallop poll showed that 75% of Americans have some sort of paranormal belief; a Harris poll showed that half of Americans believe in ghosts; a CBS poll showed that one in five Americans have seen or physically encountered a ghost; and still another survey taken from more than 400 college students with the highest GPAs found seniors and grad students more likely to believe in the paranormal then their “uneducated” freshman counterparts. Paranormal beliefs include such phenomena as extraterrestrial and UFO close encounters, all types of psychic phenomena, miracles and demonic possession, ghosts and poltergeists, witchcraft and metaphysics, and encounters with extraordinary life forms, including Bigfoot and the notorious chupacabra.

REAL-LIFE ENCOUNTERS

Thanks to the World Wide Web, encounters with the paranormal and supernatural are more easily reported, communicated, and documented around the world. Here are a few recent accounts:

    While walking home from the store at twilight, Mrs. Wajda of Poland and her three children were attacked by several creatures that emerged from the ground. “They looked like monkeys,” she said, “but their skin was rough and prickly, like some sort of lizard. We fought them off until one of them let out a high-pitched shriek and they quickly crawled back into the ground.” Local authorities were dumbfounded by the report and the injuries that were sustained by the family, as well as the strange animal tracks that were left behind. Exploration of the fissure that the creatures originated from showed that it had recently collapsed or been sealed from within.
    During a hike in the mountains near Tibet, Mr. Ferguson of Australia, and friends, were jolted awake by a huge, luminous craft that hovered over their campsite. “I woke to screams, a blinding light and a rumbling noise that sounded like static,” Mr. Ferguson reported. “I tore through my tent to see what it was, but it was so huge and brilliant, we couldn’t make out any detail. The light that came from it burned and prickled our skin, like it was raining boiling water. It lowered to about fifty-feet above out campsite then suddenly shot straight up into the night sky and disappeared.” Mr. Ferguson, his friends, and guides cut short their trip and returned to the nearest village, and after receiving medical attention discovered that they were all suffering from a mild case of radiation burns. While Chinese authorities stated that nothing appeared on radar and air defenses, several reports were made over a wide area claiming to have seen a brilliant light performing phenomenal aerodynamics.
    “At first we rationalized away the strange events happening around our home, until we all began to witness ghostly figures moving through our house and they began to physically injure us in clear view of others,” states Terry, a 35-year-old wife and mother of two from upstate New York. “While I’m open-minded, my husband is an atheist and a skeptic and insisted that there must be some sort of rational explanation for the incidents. He refused to listen to others about ‘ghosts’ and ‘poltergeists’ and tried to dismiss the incidents. Then one Saturday morning, he woke me up frantic with a black eye and bloody nose and insisted that they all get out of the house.” Terry and her family were claiming to be under attack of what is referred to as “poltergeist phenomena.” While thousands of haunts and poltergeists are continually reported around the world, the actual number that are as violent as Terry’s case is unknown since the majority of people who have these experiences prefer to keep them private.

EXPLORING THE PHENOMENA

“From a psychological and physiological standpoint, these people (those who have encountered phenomena) have been deeply affected by their real or perceived experiences,” comments Christopher Chacon, one of the world’s leading experts on paranormal and supernatural phenomena. Chacon adds, “In some cases, they are seriously traumatized by these experiences, so it is imperative to first and foremost address the well-being of the ‘experiencers’ before further exploration of the claimed phenomenon.”

In addition to his background in magic and illusion, Chacon is a former scientific investigator from the Office of Scientific Investigation and Research (O.S.I.R.) with over twenty years of experience and has conducted thousands of investigations, traveling the world exploring every type of phenomena imaginable. Among the phenomena he has dealt with includes haunts and poltergeists, UFO close encounters, miracles and experiences of divine-intervention, possessions and exorcisms, encounters with extraordinary life-forms and all manner of psychic phenomena, from reincarnation and remote viewing to psychokinesis. Chacon has also participated on highly sensitive expeditions dealing with ancient rituals and artifacts, mysticism and the occult. While he has no doubt encountered phenomena that the majority of us cannot even fathom, Chacon approaches every situation with an open mind, typically refraining from defining it until otherwise determined.

BELIEFS AFFECT PERCEPTION

“It would be irresponsible to conjecture on the true nature of any specific phenomenon that is being experienced until I am at least able get a first-hand experience of it myself,” says Chacon. “I cannot emphasize enough the importance of belief systems when dealing with these phenomena.”

Chacon reiterates that the “mindset” and method of approaching these phenomena is as crucial as every other element and dynamic involving the experience itself. “Belief systems, both yours and the experiencer’s are certainly a pivotal key when exploring any phenomena,” he says. “From the analyzing of how beliefs affect the perception of such claimed experiences or exploring the possible connections to origins in quantum physics.”

Chacon points out that belief systems can also blind the observer from the true nature of a situation, stating, “Just as the complexities of predispositions and beliefs can cause a believer to perceive experiences that are not there, they can equally cause the nonbeliever to perceptually deny that an experience is taking place.” Chacon adds that the inclination and overemphasis to logically separate the “normal” from the “paranormal” could very well cause one to unknowingly lose sight on the real issue. “This might be a matter of semantics,” he says, “but one could certainly argue that there is no ‘true’ supernatural phenomena; there is only natural phenomena (things we can comprehend) and preternatural phenomena (things we have yet to grasp). Of course, whether we call it supernatural or preternatural, paranormal or anomalous, it doesn’t take away the fact that people of all walks of life, of all ages and belief systems are having these ‘experiences’, and it would be illogical and irresponsible to simply address and label the phenomena – explainable or real – without tending to the state of the ‘experiencer’.”

Chacon certainly has his work cutout for himself, with a backlog of hundreds of cases and requests for his assistance coming in daily from all over the world. These inquiries are as wide-ranging as the phenomena themselves and vary from an ordinary family on a South Pacific Island to an industrial company in the Middle East, from high-ranking religious officials to a law enforcement agency in South America.

THE HOLLYWOOD CONNECTION

As the paranormal and supernatural continue to be reported in more frequency, there has been much conjecture about the cause behind the massive popularity of these phenomena. A few skeptics have claimed that the media and Hollywood’s most popular movies on the paranormal are solely responsible for proliferating many of the beliefs in such phenomena. And while the media can certainly have an effect on reinforcing beliefs and the propagation of them, sociologists and psychologists disagree, stating that Hollywood’s creations are not responsible for originating beliefs, but rather have created an environment that allows for a more open dialogue for discussion of them. One only needs to look at the origin and source material that inspires paranormal-themed media to see that the overwhelming belief of these phenomena is based in actual experiences rather then what is later experienced on the big or little screen.

Many of the most successful Hollywood paranormal blockbusters, such as Poltergeist and Close Encounters of the Third Kind, are actually inspired by pre-existing research and real-life accounts taken from hundreds of sources. The phenomena in Close Encounters of the Third Kind, for example, was inspired by a mountain of research, both anecdotal and scientific, and then dramatically spun by Spielberg into his phenomenal smash hit. Spielberg himself had thanked many sources in the UFO-research community for their assistance, including Dr. J Allen Hyneck, who made a cameo in the film. The evidence that the media is solely responsible for paranormal belief is weak at best. This is additionally supported by the millions of people around the world, some in third world countries, who have never seen a Hollywood movie or western television for that matter, and yet have substantial belief systems and experiences associated with ghosts, extraterrestrials, strange creatures, and psychic phenomena. This goes to show that we certainly don’t need TV or movies to instill a belief or maintain the fascination in the paranormal and supernatural.

HALLOWEEN ORIGINS

Whether one is a believer or a skeptic, Halloween in the U.S. might be the one time of the year that both stand united in simply having a good time in the shadow of such reported phenomena. The origins of Halloween itself lay in supernatural beliefs and an ancient Celtic festival that dates back some 2,000 years. Originally called Samhain (pronounced sow-in), the festival originated amidst the region now known as the United Kingdom and celebrated the one night each year that the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became indistinguishable. On this night, the Celts believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to Earth for good or for bad and allowed Druid priests to additionally interact with them for the well being of them all.

Over the course of hundreds of years, early Christianity would attempt to suppress and replace the Celtic festival with All Saints' Day, which was celebrated on November 1, a holy day of obligation to honor saints and martyrs in the Christian faith. The celebration was also called All-hallows or All-hallowmas (from Middle English Alholowmesse meaning All Saints' Day) and the night before it, the night of Samhain, began to be called All-hallows Eve and, eventually, Halloween. But even the powerful influence of the church was unable to squelch the supernatural festival, and Halloween endured and flourished over the centuries to become the sensationalistic celebration it is today in the U.S.

COMMERCIALIZATION OF HALLOWEEN

In many ways, Halloween has become an outlet and a celebration of the paranormal and a creative way of putting a fun spin on mysterious phenomena that might usually invoke fear. During Halloween, which is now a multi-billion-dollar industry that comes second only to Christmas, the demand for entertainment, merchandise, and assorted supernatural, horror-themed supplies have skyrocketed. In addition to the traditional movie and TV entertainment that features spine-tingling chills, live-event haunted attractions have become the biggest rage, commonly selling-out. Several metropolitan areas in the U.S., including New York City, Chicago, the San Francisco Bay area, Miami, and Los Angeles all possess hundreds of horror-themed mazes and attractions, several of them major theme parks that have been transformed into fully integrated “scream attractions.”

While Halloween is still mostly an American commercial phenomenon, little by little every year, evidence that the spooky holiday is being embraced globally is being seen more and more. UNICEF itself has a special “Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF” program aimed to empower kids, not just in the U.S., but in other countries as well, by trick-or-treating for donations to help their counter-parts in need all over the world. The reluctance to embrace Halloween in other countries has been primarily due to the seriousness that the supernatural and paranormal is taken in other cultures. While the western world can make light of beliefs, both religious and metaphysical, other old-world cultures are very sensitive to and deeply immersed in their beliefs and find such playfulness like the Amercanized version of Halloween to be considered as taboo and, in some cultures, even sacrilegious.

Whether or not you are believer in other-worldly phenomena, one thing is for certain: with every passing year, the popularity of this spooky season grows to new heights along with the global, year-round fascination in the paranormal and supernatural. And while the majority of us will be reveling in a fun-filled Halloween season where scarier is often considered better, the knowledge that researchers like Christopher Chacon will be dealing with real-life paranormal phenomena somewhere in the world is an eerie reminder of what this scary season is based on.

- WEREWOLF...THERE WOLF DEPARTMENT -

Werewolves: Not Transformed Humans
By Nick Redfern

While I was at the Original Texas Bigfoot Conference this past weekend, a couple of people came up to me and asked what I really think about werewolves. Clearly, the questions were prompted by the fact that it’s no secret I have written extensively on this particularly controversial subject. I replied by saying that, to answer the question, it’s important to have an understanding of what werewolves are not.

When people learn that I do think there is a real werewolf phenomenon, many of them assume I mean werewolves of the folkloric and Hollywood variety. That’s to say, people who shape-shift into wolves, or into bipedal wolf-like creatures that are half-wolf and half-human. I should stress I believe no such thing – at all.

Yes, movies like An American Werewolf in London, The Howling, Underworld, and The Wolfman are great fun – but they are fiction.

The idea that the human body can be physically morphed into that of a wolf (or into the form of a wolf-like animal) and then back to its original state is not just unlikely. It’s nuts. It cannot happen – period. The massive, physical changes that would have to occur to the body are impossible to achieve.

The problem when it comes to werewolves, and the matter of their existence, is that so many people cannot disassociate themselves from the movie versions and from those tales of centuries-old folklore and legend. Too bad for them. They need to step back from their Hollywood fantasies and get a bloody grip.

What I do believe, is the following: (a) that people absolutely do see creatures that resemble the popular image of werewolves: and (b) that some of those cases – but most certainly not all of them – have  paranormal overtones attached to them, even if we don’t have a full understanding of what that term – “paranormal” – really means.

I have, for example, investigated a number of highly credible reports of werewolf-like beasts seen in the Cannock Chase woods of Staffordshire, England (situated very close to where I used to live, and currently in the spotlight because of the “Black Eyed Kids” controversy). In these cases, all of the sightings occurred in areas that we might consider significant and somewhat out of the ordinary – such as cemeteries and sites of archaeological significance.

In not a single one of these cases, however, is there even the remotest reference to these creatures being transformed people. Not a solitary one!

It’s very much the same here in the United States – and particularly in the state of Texas, where I have lived for almost a decade and a half. I have literally dozens of stories from Texas alone. They are split into two specific camps: (a) those in which people see bipedal, wolf-like animals; and (b) those that see wolf-like creatures that alternate between a bipedal stance and a four-legged stance.

Another parallel between the British and the American cases is that here in the United States there are also reports of these beasts seen at sacred sites – graveyards, burial mounds, and the like.

Clearly, something is going on; something deeply weird. And it’s something that researchers of anomalous activity like myself need to try and get to the bottom of. But, no-one should be going down the path of thinking (or trying to prove) that the werewolf phenomenon is linked to shape-shifting humans.

It might sound absurd to think that, in the United States, there could be a wolf (or, more likely, a wolf-like animal) that has the ability to walk on four legs, but which can also rear up onto its hind limbs. And, yet, that is exactly what numerous people have reported – check out the works of Linda Godfrey to see what I mean.

As for the beasts seen in the US near sacred sites, like their UK cousins, not only are they not transformed humans; they are clearly not animals either – period. Or, at least, they’re not animals in the accepted sense of the term. Of the American creatures, Linda Godfrey says: “I do find more and more sightings are near cemeteries and old sacred burial and effigy mound sites — also crossroads, churches, and military areas.”

So, to get back to the questions put to me this past weekend at the Original Texas Bigfoot Conference, yes, I do believe in werewolves. The phenomenon is undeniably real. People see these things. They provoke fear, torment, stress, and nightmares for those that encounter them. But, trying to tackle the mystery with silver-bullets, or at the time of a full moon, is ridiculous and very stupid. Unless, that is, you have no life or brain.

Werewolves exist. But they are as far away from being human shape-shifters as it’s conceivably possible to get. And we need people to understand that the reality is far stranger than anything coming out of Tinseltown.

- EXPANDING THE HORIZONS OF OUR MINDS DEPARTMENT -

Psychic Researchers Say our Consciousness has Unexplained Powers

As we travel through life we are all seekers after something larger than ourselves, a truth known to seers, healers and book publishers through the ages. For Elizabeth Lloyd Mayer, a prominent clinical psychologist at Berkeley, her quest began in 1991 with the theft of a rare and valuable harp belonging to her daughter. On the advice of a friend, she sought help from a professional psychic named Harold McCoy, who, with only a street map and a photograph of the harp—he never left his home in Arkansas—told her exactly the address in Oakland where it could be found. For the rest of her life Mayer was obsessed with this feat, as who wouldn't be? So last month, 15 years after the harp was returned, I sent McCoy a picture of a lock—a cast-iron padlock my grandfather had used to lock up his pushcart at night—and a set of New York City street maps. Find the lock, I told him.

Mayer's quest took her into a world where the ordinary rules of time and space don't apply—of dowsers like McCoy, who ordinarily searches for water underground but asserts he can find almost anything by tuning in to the "vibrations" that pervade the universe; of clairvoyants who claim to read minds over the telephone or to be able to see what someone else is looking at, hundreds of miles away; of laboratories where people stare at a pendulum, trying to slow it down with their minds. She compiled her research into a just-published book, "Extraordinary Knowing: Science, Skepticism and the Inexplicable Powers of the Human Mind," that she finished just before her death in 2005, at the age of 57.

Her work took her to Princeton, where for more than 25 years engineering professor Robert G. Jahn has been testing the ability of people to influence physical objects by their thoughts. (His lab closed last month.) In thousands of experiments, he has found that they can, but only by tiny amounts—a few hundredths of a percent, a level that achieves statistical significance only because of the very large number of trials involved. Mostly he used electronic devices, such as random-number generators, but he also used a machine of the sort you see in science museums, in which balls tumble down an array of pegs and pile up in slots at the bottom, illustrating how random processes create a bell-shaped distribution.

Volunteers, staring at the display, would try to nudge the falling balls to favor the left or the right side—and it worked! In fact, it worked if the volunteer was in another room, or even in Australia. Another machine, a small robot programmed to travel in a random zigzag pattern, appeared to move in response to the mental activity of a flock of chickens. These facts will either strike you as even more amazing, or else prompt you to call the whole business into question. Even assuming there is a force, unknown to science, that emanates from the brain and can affect a falling Ping-Pong ball, what directs it to a precise location on the other side of the globe? How does the volunteer avoid screwing up a science fair down the street instead?

Mayer consulted with psychics, one of whom, a woman named Ellen Tadd, gave her some startling psychological insights about her own daughter, and later about five strangers she was interviewing for a job. I called Tadd myself, and in the course of a 20-minute phone call she gave me a quick psychic reading of my personality. The crux of it was this:

I see you being very sensitive and in some ways getting overwhelmed by the harshness and negativity and insensitivity in the world. When that reaction happened, there became this decision deep inside your soul to be strong and not be overwhelmed by this sensitivity.

I leave it to those who know me better to judge the accuracy of that assessment, but it struck me as a fairly generic description of a journalist, or a human being.

It seemed to me, reading Mayer's obviously sincere and earnest account of her investigations, that the distinguished physicist Freeman Dyson, who has long harbored an interest in the paranormal, had it exactly right in his foreword to her book: "As a scientist, I don't believe the story," he wrote about McCoy's dowsing for the harp, "but as a human being I want to believe it." It is part of the human condition to seek wonder in the world, to seek communion with a higher power that links us all together with our machines and our chickens. If there is anything stronger than belief itself, it is the desire to believe.

As for McCoy, after several hours of poring over the street maps I gave him, he called to say that the lock was in the Bronx.

It was in Queens.

Volcano Could Leave Japan 'Extinct' in Next Century

Japan could be wiped off the face of the earth by a massive volcanic eruption some time in the next century killing almost all of its 127million inhabitants, according to a new study.

Experts analysing the eruption patterns of volcanoes on the island nation say it is 'not an overstatement' to predict that a natural disaster could leave the country 'extinct'.

Scientists at Kobe University looked at a massive volcanic crater on Kyushu Island, which has erupted seven times in the last 120,000 years.

They predicted that another eruption on the southern island would bury 7 million underneath lava flows, while westerly winds would carry a huge pall of ash and dust to Honshu.

The toxic cloud would make the neighbouring island 'unliveable', they said, while saving the 120million living in major cities and towns would be 'hopeless'.

Professors Yoshiyuki Tatsumi and Keiko Suzuki calculated that the risk of such an eruption occurring in the next 100 years was around 1 per cent.

However, they said that figure could not be ignored, as the chance of a major earthquake striking Kobe within 30 years was estimated at about one percent just a day before a 7.2-magnitude quake destroyed the Japanese port city in 1995, killing 6,400 people.

'Therefore, it would be no surprise if a colossal eruption occurs at any moment,' the study added.

The news comes just weeks after Mount Ontake, in central Japan, erupted suddenly in September, killing 51 people, some of whom were children.

Most of those who died were hikers who were standing and taking pictures near the summit when the mountain erupted in the country's worst volcanic disaster for 90 years.

It also comes amid warnings that a volcano in southern Japan located 40 miles from a nuclear plant was showing signs of increased activity that could possibly lead to an eruption.

Ioyama, a mountain on the south western island of Kyushu, has also been shaken by small tremors and other signs of rising volcanic activity recently, indicating that it might also erupt.

One tremor lasted as long as seven minutes, an official at the Japan Meteorological Agency's volcano division said.

UFOs Unexplained Ability To Change Shape
By Tim R. Swartz

There is no doubt that UFOs are strange. The fact that they are usually seen silently zipping around in our skies is weird enough; but throw in the fact that many UFOs that appear solid are seen to be constantly changing shape and size, it's enough to drive any serious UFO researcher to take up butterfly collecting instead.

It is one of the great mysteries of UFOs, how can something that looks so real not behave like a solid object and change shape as rapidly as smoke in the wind? This has led to wild speculations on the true nature of UFOs and allowed skeptics to dismiss the entire phenomenon as simply misinterpreted natural events.

What hard-core skeptics fail to take into consideration is the thousands of diverse UFO sightings that have come in over the years that exhibit the same shape-changing characteristics. A reported sighting of a weird object that changes shape can be a good way to distinguish a real UFO from one that is fraudulent.

UFOs are seen to come in all kinds of different shapes and sizes, ranging from saucers, ovals, cigars, spheres, rocket and triangular shaped. They can suddenly appear and disappear, only to reappear in a completely different location. They can split in two and rejoin again instantly.  This has led to all sorts of heated arguments between UFO researchers who have a preferred shape, choosing to throw out cases that don't meet their criteria. However, if you take into account all of the reports of UFOs seen to morph from one shape into another, then possibly the vast diversity of UFOs is not so difficult to explain after all.

Classic Report of a Morphing UFO

On June 29, 1954, A British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) Stratocruiser Centaurus left New York Idlewild airport bound for London. Just after 9:00pm the aircraft passed 170 miles southwest of Goose Bay, Labrador, flying northeast at 19,000ft. The crew suddenly noticed an object to the west of the plane that was roughly five degrees aft of the port wing at a distance of about five miles. As they drew closer, the crew could see a large pear-shaped UFO flying in formation with six other smaller objects.

Against the sunset these objects appeared dark with the six smaller UFOs changing their positions around the larger craft which seemed to change from its original pear shape to a telephone handset shape and, in the words of Captain Howard: "what looked like a flying arrow - an enormous delta-winged plane turning in to close with us."  The anomalous shape-shifting object seemed to be solid with definite, clearly-defined edges.

As the jetliner drew closer the smaller UFOs formed into a regular line and seemed to merge into the larger object.  Then the remaining large UFO appeared to suddenly shrink and vanish right before the eyes of the startled crew.

Captain Howard remarked later: "...they were obviously not aircraft as we know them. All appeared black and I will swear they were solid. There was a big central object that appeared to keep changing shape. The six smaller objects dodged about either in front or behind..."

In another case a Baptist Pastor while traveling with his family in the western part of the U.S. on June 8, 2002, observed a silver aluminum object flying above the mountains.

The Pastor says, "When I first noticed the object it was in the shape of a box and about the size of a small private plane. I tried to show it to my family and I was pointing where to look. Taking my eyes off of it for a moment, it changed to a round bottom cup shape without the handle (the round section being at the top). The sighting lasted about 30 seconds. The craft was not in a hurry really but seemed to be just cruising around. I don't know how it disappeared. I lost sight of it trying to point it out to my family after looking away for just a second."

UFO Changes Shape Right Before Witnesses Eyes

On June 5, 2005 a man was stopped at a traffic light on route 422 in Niles Ohio when he noticed a bright silver, metallic UFO in the clear blue sky in front of his car.

"It was thin, cigar shaped with rounded ends and there was a large spot of sun glare shining from the left (back end). With my arm completely extended, its length would have been about the width across of a quarter."

About six to seven seconds after he first spotted the unusual object, it seemed to change shape with the front end moving slightly inward so that the object took on more of a boomerang shape with one side shorter than the other. The glare from the sun that had been so bright at the left end moved in a quick flash and settled more in the center of the object and there seemed to be a darker spot right in the middle.

At that point the UFO was seen to ripple and get fuzzy at the edges. After the hazy ripple, it completely vanished leaving the eyewitness wondering what he had just seen.

This odd shape-shifting was actually captured on camera in 1994 at an undisclosed location within the Nellis Air Force Base Bombing and Gunnery Range Complex, Nevada. The videotape is said to have been smuggled out by contractor personnel who had operated tracking stations on the Nellis range. Even though the UFO was photographed by a very good remote controlled fixed mounted camera, it still has that fuzzy, cotton-ball look about it which seems to be common among UFOs.

The Nellis Test Range UFO footage is an excellent example of what seems to be a real UFO caught on tape. This object, tracked by military radar and cameras, flies boldly around in a bright, clear sky seemingly unconcerned that it is being watched and photographed.

The object recorded on videotape flying over the dessert terrain that day appears to be constantly changing shape. At first it appears to be disc-shaped, then it looks somewhat like a small jet with round stubby wings, then it changes into three-balls, all the while the object is never clearly defined. It is as if it is surrounded by fog or mist, keeping it just out of focus. What kind of object are we dealing with that is never still, is always changing shape, and seems to be not quite solid?

As the object slowly spins a projection of some kind can also be seen. There is also a shifting "coal black" region. More often than not, the craft has a morphing, indefinite profile that appears to be self-luminous.

Strikingly similar UFOs have been videotaped over Mexico City, showing the same multi-lobed, cotton ball effect with darkened areas. Ed Walters also shot photos of two similar lobed craft over Gulf Breeze, Florida, one being pursued by a jet interceptor. Steve Neeley photographed a brilliant three-lobed object surrounded by a glowing "cloud" over Hardin County, Ohio. Neeley called the craft a "triangle" and a faint triangular zone can be seen within the lobes.

Physicists have speculated that what we see around shape-shifting UFOs may not be the UFO itself, but rather the energy change occurring around the UFO as it moves between dimensions. Apparent "vehicles" that seem to change shape while in the air may not be spacecraft at all, but cross-sections of four-dimensional objects that bisect familiar 3-D reality. For example, a 3-D cross section of a 4-D tube would appear spherical. If the tube was irregular in shape, we would expect it to "change shape" in our three dimensions as it moved, much how a sphere passing through a two-dimensional plane would appear like a rapidly growing disk to any watching flatlanders.

Alan Holt and David Froening at the end of the 1970s worked on an extension of Einstein's Unified Field Theory involving what they referred to as a "field propulsion" craft. This spacecraft would change color and shape as it entered different stages of flight - this is similar to many UFOs that are reported around the globe.

Have UFOs Inspired Morphing Aircraft Designs?

Rumors have circulated among the UFO community that modern aircraft designs have been influenced by back-engineered extraterrestrial spacecraft. According to LiveScience.com, NASA and Department of Defense engineers are trying to create a plane that can morph into new shapes during flight by flexing or twisting, due to being made of new metals that form a kind of "flexible skin."

Amazing advances are being made in the development of new metal alloys. These alloys have remarkable characteristics, in that they will change shape upon the application of an electric current or magnetic field. They change shape, or morph rapidly and with some considerable force. They are termed "compact hybrid actuators," alloys that incorporate advanced nano-technology that is designed to enable them to mimic living systems in their versatility and dynamism.

The list of potential applications seems endless, and the U.S. military is funding a variety of related research programs exploring the full range of options. Self-healing wings that flex and react like living organisms, versatile bombers that double as agile jet fighters, and swarms of tiny unmanned aircraft are just a few of the science-fiction-like possibilities that these next-generation technologies could make feasible in the decades ahead.

In his 1997 book "The Day After Roswell", the late Col. Philip J. Corso described his own experience of examining unusual material alleged to come from the 1947 UFO crash site in New Mexico:

There was a dull, grayish-silvery foil-like swatch of cloth among these artifacts that you could not fold, bend, tear, or wad up but that bounded right back into its original shape without any creases.  It was a metallic fiber with physical characteristics that would later be called 'supertenacity,' but when I tried to cut it with scissors, the arms just slid right off without even making a nick in the fibers.  If you tried to stretch it, it bounced back, but I noticed that all the threads seemed to be going in one direction.  When I tried to stretch it width-wise instead of length-wise, it looked like the fibers had re-orientated themselves to the direction I was pulling in.  This couldn't be cloth, but it obviously wasn't metal.  It was a combination, to my unscientific eye, of a cloth woven with metal strands that had the drape and malleability of a fabric and the strength and resistance of a metal."  

Corso claimed in his book that he "seeded" the alien material to the research departments of Monsanto and Dow.  Furthermore, Corso claims that the material had previously been delivered to the Air Material Command at Wright Field. Wright Patterson Air Force Base is famous in UFO circles for its Foreign Technology division, purported to hold extra-terrestrial craft and artifacts. It could be that the new morphing technologies being used in new, top secret aircraft are the results of years of study on the UFO debris captured by the U.S. in the 1940s.

The entire UFO phenomenon is always changing and never clearly defined. When you think that you finally have something definite, the phenomenon changes again and you are back at square one. For more than fifty years, this is what has constantly confounded UFO researchers - when it comes to shape changing UFOs, there appears to be no real truths or answers. Anything goes, and often does.

'Vampire Grave' Found in Bulgaria


The discovery recently of a 700-year-old skeleton with metal stakes where his heart had been has stirred a bout of vampire-mania in Europe and attracted flocks of tourists to the churchyard grave site in Bulgaria's Black Sea port of Sozopol.

Professor Nikolai Ovcharov – a crusading archaeologist who has dedicated his life to unearthing mysteries of ancient civilisations – said that he had made the discovery while excavating the ruins of Perperikon, an ancient Thracian city located in southern Bulgaria, close to the border with Greece.

The city, inhabited since 5,000 BC but only discovered 20 years ago, is believed to be the site of the Temple of Dionysius – the Greek God of wine and fertility. And among the finds at the site, which includes a hilltop citadel, a fortress and a sanctuary, are a series of "vampire graves".

The skeleton, thought to be of a man aged between 40 and 50, had a heavy piece of ploughshare – an iron rod, used in a plough – hammered through its chest. The left leg below the knee had also been removed and left beside the skeleton.

 "The ploughshare weighs almost two pounds and is dug into the body into a broken shoulder bone. You can clearly see how the collarbone has literally popped out."

Professor Ovcharov added that he thought the grave dated back to the first half of the 13th Century.

So keen is the interest, the Bulgarian newspaper Standart reported, that Bulgarian authorities have moved the disinterred remains to a special display case at the Bulgarian Natural History Museum in Sofia.

At least 100 graves have been discovered during modern-day archaeological excavations in which the remains appeared to have been pinned down with iron rods or stakes, the newspaper said.

As recently as a century ago, Balkan peoples held to the belief that staking down the corpses of people who they regarded a evil would prevent them from rising from the dead and continuing to torment the living, archaeologist and museum director Bozhidar Dimitrov told journalists in Sofia, the Bulgarian capital.

"A group of brave men would reopen their graves and pierce the corpses with iron or wooden rods. Iron rod was used for the richer vampires," Dimitrov told journalists gathered around the skeleton, which he said was probably that of a notorious Black Sea pirate known as Krivich, or "Crooked."

Historically, vampire lore has spread from Transylvania in neighboring Romania, where a brutal 15th century ruler known as Vlad the Impaler dealt with his enemies by skewering them on stakes and posting them to suffer their gruesome deaths in public. Vlad the Impaler was believed to be the real-life inspiration for novelist Bram Stoker's fictional vampire, Dracula.

Bulgarian media have reported the discoveries of two other staked skeletons this month, both 700 to 800 years old -- more than a century before Vlad the Impaler's reign.

The global tourism news site eTN reported that travel agencies have been hit with a surge of interest in "vampire vacations." A photo accompanying the Standart story from the Bulfoto agency showed tourists in shorts and sun hats strolling through ruins of the nearby Black Sea town of Nessebar, noting that many have been asking to see the grave where the pirate's remains were found.

Agencies said interest from Britain and Germany was especially high, but they had also received enquiries from Russia and the United States, eTN reported.
