O Think that Earth is one molten ball of fire on the inside? Where have you been my friend -- its hollow with a central sun (and even the famed explorer Richard Byrd wandered inside while exploring the poles), and the planet is also honeycombed with caverns inhabited by all sorts of creatures. Ask Richard Shaver who was down there with the Dero and the Tero. No this is not science fiction -- it's the real thing dear friend.

Bad to Worse: Fifth Undersea Cable Cut in Middle East

Undersea cable owners still won't speculate on cause of cable cuts.

Reports are coming in this morning that a fifth undersea fiber optic cable was severed in the Middle East. However, by several accounts, the fifth cable cut is actually a second cut on a different segment of the FALCON cable. How exactly these cables are being cut is still unknown, though Egyptian officials maintain a ship didn’t cause the breakages near the port of Alexandria.

The saga of cut cables and lost bandwidth began on January 23 when the Flag Telecoms FALCON undersea fiber optic cable near the Egyptian port of Alexandria was severed. On January 30 another cable called the SeaMeWe-4 (South East Asia-Middle East- Western Europe-4) cable was cut according to the Khaleej Times Online. Egyptian officials said that a review of ship traffic in the area at the time of the breakage precludes the damage being caused by a ships anchor.

Khaleej Times Online reports that on February 1 another cut appeared in the FALCON cable, which resulted in severe disruption of data service in the Gulf region. The rundown of cut cables in the region includes the FLAG Europe-Asia cable near Alexandria, FALCON near Bandar Abbas in Iran, SeaMeWe-4 near Alexandria, SeaMeWe-4 near Penang, Malaysia, and FLAG near the Dubai coast.

Mahesh Jaishanker executive director of Business Development and Marketing for TeleGeography is quoted by the Khaleej Times Online as saying, “The submarine cable cuts in FLAG Europe-Asia cable 8.3km away from Alexandria, Egypt and SeaMeWe-4 affected at least 60 million users in India, 12 million in Pakistan, six million in Egypt and 4.7 million in Saudi Arabia.”

DailyTech reported that the first pair of cables were severed on January 31, followed by a third cut undersea cable on February 4, and a fourth cut cable on February 5.

Guided By Voices

It’s only a matter of time. The wrong person will find their way, like a deer trapped in headlights, into the path of a HOLOSONIC ™ advertising beam. Whether the voices tell them to “Drink more coke” or “tune in next week” they will snap. God bless and keep safe those who fall in their path thereafter. We’ll either get another mass shooter, mind control cult leader, or perhaps another President.

What has long been rumored within the conspiracy and ufology communities went public a few years ago (though a variant of the technology was discussed for use even earlier during the Waco siege) and is quickly infiltrating the market of ideas and real world applications. Holosonic sound technologies project a high pitched directional beam of ultrasound audio to an exact location, usually where the target audience’s head will be. The victim will hear a voice, music, advertisement, or whatever the beams controller would like, inside their head. No-one around them would be able to hear it, unless they could drag someone to that exact spot and hope the beam was still trained on the same location.

Holosonic Directional SoundThis technology is quietly appearing in museums and other locales desiring focused areas of audible information that won’t disrupt what is supposed to be an otherwise quiet environment. Imagine walking up to a painting and if you are in the right spot you hear a narrator giving the history and import of the artwork you’re admiring. The Seattle Space Needle has seen a successful deployment of this sort of audio delivery. Now bookstores, cafes, and street corners have the potential to become the new billboards “inside-your-head,” and yet another technological weapon of mass marketing, destruction, and deception. Just as there are plenty of potentially good uses for this technology, there are equally as many obvious covert uses for these devices as weapons of psychological warfare. Heck, the prank potential alone could make this the next novelty store favorite for getting even with your friends. Indeed, Holosonic sound’s inventor loves to freak out library users with his mind control toy.

Holosonic Vending MachineWhile modern psychology speculates about how normal or not it is to hear voices, historically, people who hear voices have succumbed to some rather intense fates. The Bible’s Book of Acts records the tale of Christian Persecutor Saul on a crusade to Damascus having a transformative experience after being struck by a light and hearing the word of Christ. His new spiritual path would ultimately lead him to be jailed for his beliefs. Flash forward to the 1400s when Joan of Arc was burned at the stake for hearing and acting upon the voices in her head, in the process becoming a paranormal and political force to be reckoned with. Years later the Vatican declared her a martyr and saint.

In more modern times many a “lone nut” has suffered from voices, and ultimately given in to those voices’ demands to kill. People like Mark David Chapman, who would give in and follow through on the voices urging them to kill; in Chapman’s case the target was John Lennon. However the stories of Chapman and many other modern voice-in-the-head-victims differ from those older historical examples, occurring as they did within the heyday of the CIA’s MK-Ultra experimentation.

While the technology to project voices into the head may not have been around in 36 A.D. nor the 15th Century, surely the military intelligence complex investigations into the multitude of uses and effects associated with electromagnetic phenomena have led to ways of introducing sounds into the heads of its enemies.

Scientifically oriented UFO researchers and journalistic paranormal writers have chronicled this for decades. Computer scientist and astrophysicist Jacques Vallee has been warning about the use and abuse of these technologies within the UFO field since at least 1979 with his book Messengers of Deception. Vallee was talking about these issues in interviews with other leading UFOlogists like Jerome Clark (for FATE magazine) back in 1978:

“What we do know is that you can make people hallucinate using either lights or microwave or electromagnetic energy. You can also make them pass out; you can cause them to behave strangely, put them into shock, make them hear voices or even kill them.”

The dust-jacket quote to ufological journalist John Keel’s 1970 classic Why UFOs - Operation Trojan Horse reads …

“THIS BOOK IS A WARNING: Suppose the plan is to process millions of people and at some future date trigger those minds at one time? Would we suddenly have a world of saints or a world of armed maniacs shooting at one another from bell towers?”

Austin’s own bell tower sniper, Charles Whitman, never mentioned hearing voices, though rumors of a brain tumor might make you expect him to have heard them because sometimes, voices in the head have been known to warn the listener of brain tumors that were later confirmed by doctors. Or in the case of science fiction author Philip K. Dick, voices coming from a nearby radio (that was turned off) warned him of his son’s undiagnosed medical condition that would turn out to be true, and found just in the nick of time, saving his son’s life.

Whitley Strieber’s famous San Antonio experiences are the stories of other, lesser known locals who claim to have endured mind control experimentation and harassment in the form of voices in the head. Central Texan Bernie Nelson described being harassed in an Austin hotel room (Holiday Inn on the lake I believe) with voices of mind control technicians telling him that Abbie Hoffman was experiencing the same kind of harassment at the time. Radical political activist Abbie Hoffman would later commit suicide under suspicious circumstances.

This technology, with its ability to remotely implant voices into the ears of its victims, has been described for decades in various patents and research papers by Government and Military darlings such as Jose Delgado. Delgado’s implantable stimoceiver enabled your cat’s ears to spy on you or allow any animal (or anyone) to become as robot controlled as the rampaging bull Delgado turned on and off with a switch. But these technologies rely on an implanted device. Microwave induction of auditory effects is another approach altogether and does not rely upon an implant. Both the implant enabled and microwave directed techniques are well documented with much information in the public domain.

“In 1973, Dr. Joseph Sharp, of the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, expanded on Frey’s work in an experiment where the subject - in this case, Sharp himself - “heard” and understood spoken words delivered via a pulsed-microwave analog of the speaker’s sound vibrations.

Dr. Robert Becker comments that “Such a device has obvious applications in covert operations designed to drive a target crazy with ‘voices’ or deliver undetectable instructions to a programmed assassin.” In other words, we now have, at the push of a button, the technology either to inflict an electronic gaslight - or to create a true Manchurian Candidate. Indeed, the former capability could effectively disguise the latter. Who will listen to the victims, when electronically-induced hallucinations they recount exactly parallel the classical signals of paranoid schizophrenia and/or temporal lobe epilepsy?” - Martin Cannon on Robert O. Becker’s, The Body Electric (1985)

UFO and conspiracy researchers besides Vallee and Keel have been writing about these technologies for years. Parapolitical investigator Jim Keith wrote about them in his books Mind Control, World Control: The Encyclopedia of Mind Control (1997) and Mass Control: Engineering Human Consciousness (2003). Victim, researcher and activist Kathy Kasten has been documenting her and others’ victimization by these technologies since at least 1998. In 1996 David Guyatt was invited to present his paper “Some Aspects of Anti Personnel Electromagnetic Weapons” to the International Committee of the Red Cross in Montreaux, Switzerland. Though I’ve not been able to obtain a copy, Microwave News apparently reported on an alleged “three day top-secret non-lethal weapons conference [that] took place in the Applied Physics Laboratory at Johns Hopkins University in Maryland” in November of 1993. This alleged conference is said to have been chaired by none other than non-lethal weapons expert and paranormal UFO researcher Col. John B. Alexander. But perhaps nothing ignited the mind control conspiracy sub-genre within the ufological scene as much as Martin Cannon’s important paper, “The Controllers: A new hypothesis of Alien Abduction,” first published in the pages of the MUFON Journal in 1989. Martin Cannon spoke of how nearly every major politician had a file drawer full of “wavies”: people who claimed harassment by electronic waves.

“They claim to be victims of clandestine bombardment with non-ionizing radiation - or microwaves. They report sudden changes in psychological states, alteration of sleep patterns, intracerebral voices and other sounds, and physiological effects. Most people never realize how many wavies there are in this country. I’ve spoken to a number of wavies myself.” - Martin Cannon

This latest public relations push for a third type of voice in the head induction technology, attempting to capitalize upon and normalize the invasion of your headspace, does not bode well for the public at large nor those groups of “political wavies” and other persons perceiving malevolent persecution at the hands of orchestrated electromagnetic harassment. At the same time, this new publicity may actually help those communities of self-proclaimed mind kontrol victims (like Austin’s own that have sprung up across the United States and around the world in England and elsewhere.

In recent years mind control conspiracy theories have moved from the realm of fringe parapolitical investigations and UFO lore into the world of marketing, advertising and even military industry rumor blogging. The past few years WIRED magazine’s own military technology blog has been following chatter about the United States military’s “Voice of Allah” PsyOps technology. Technologies that several writers have linked back to the idea of Grand UFO Deception scenarios, wherein the world is plunged into co-experiencing a mass UFO event in which everyone hears the voice of their particular God (or aliens) speaking directly to them inside their heads - often along with a Project Blue Beam hologram of Allah or Jesus. Heck, maybe they’ll use a hologram of the Loch Ness monster.

“Taliban soldiers who hear voices from the skies over Afghanistan may think it’s divine intervention. The Department of Defense would like them to see it that way.” - Stars and Stripes, 2001 (

But of course we know of other folks besides new Holosonic and Holographic victims who experience voices and visions. Schizophrenics are often reported to describe hearing cruel and harassing voices in their heads or voices that are perceived as coming from an external source like a nearby radio - a radio that may in fact be turned off but is spewing debilitating chatter. Thankfully there are those in the psychiatry community waking up to the need for new standards of diagnosis in view of such “crazy” “wavie” inducing technologies. It was another local self-proclaimed mind kontrol victim who made me aware of Carole Smith’s important article from the Journal of Psycho-Social Studies titled, “On the Need for New Criteria of Diagnosis of Psychosis in the Light of Mind Invasive Technology.” Thank goodness we still have the internet to get this information out there.

So the next time you hear voices in your head, don’t jump to the conclusion you are crazy, or that you are a mind control victim, and certainly don’t jump to your death. Because it just might be some international PR firm trying to sell you on their latest client’s product or political views or, just as easily, some mean-spirited kid with a directional ultrasound gun trying to get your goat. If the voices persist and you decide to seek professional help, go prepared and go armed, not with a sniper rifle, but with all of this handy information before telling your psychologist you hear voices in your head.

Secret Air Force Tests Could Explain Texas UFO Sightings

Put the alien theories on hold and get the men in black a cup of coffee. You know how they like it.

Some experts say it's possible that instead of little green men at the helm of Unidentified Flying Objects sighted in Texas skies the past two months, Air Force pilots could be secretly working out the kinks in the next U-2 spy plane or B-2 stealth bomber.

Secret technology could be giving house-size spheres the power to zoom around in incredible maneuvers or allowing mother ships a mile long and a half mile wide to hover over central and west Texas. After all, the military has experimental technologies the public might not know about until decades after development.

"For national security reasons, of course, they're disinclined to tell us about it," said Michael Shermer, executive director of the Skeptics Society and editor of Skeptic magazine.

In addition to Shermer, an author of more than 20 books on secret and stealth technology, other think-tank experts and a former "Skunk Works" chief are among those weighing in.

Some of the possibilities:

The government is conducting a campaign of disinformation, spreading UFO stories to cover up the truth, which could involve something like the F-117.

Eyewitnesses surprised by fast-moving spheres and gigantic space ships saw jets from the 301st Fighter Wing at the nearby Naval Air Station Fort Worth Joint Reserve Base.

The UFO sighting in the news was at 6:15 p.m. Jan. 8 around Stephenville, Texas, in Erath County, was on the same day military officials say the 301st had F-16s on a training mission in the area.

But residents in Brown, Erath and Comanche counties have spoken of UFO incidents going back 30 years, said Ken Cherry, owner of a small financial services company who volunteers as Texas state director for the nonprofit Mutual UFO Network.

During the last two months, a cluster of UFOs cropped up in the area about a 77-mile drive from Fort Worth, Cherry said. Commercial and ex-military pilots, oilfield workers, ranchers, farmers and others reported sightings to the organization devoted to seriously researching UFOs.

"Out of the small number of cases that we have been unable to solve, we've determined that UFOs do exist," he said. "The two leading theories are that these UFOs are either our secret technology or they're extraterrestrial technology."

Defense analysts are frank about the certainty the military is working on something secret but aren't ready to believe central Texas is where.
John Pike, a defense and intelligence expert, said the government has thrown up smokescreens before, like with Area 51 in Nevada, to discredit witnesses.

"If they get people seeing lights all the time, and they don't know what it is, one way of making the whole thing seem silly is to have people recall flying saucers," Pike, director of, said. "And that way the whole story just kind of goes away."

Area 51 has played a role in modern American mythology about everything from secret military technologies to alien spacecraft. Beliefs vary as to the truth about the southern Nevada location although it's widely thought the military has black — classified — programs there.

The U-2, for instance, was tested at a secret base in Nevada, said Bill Sweetman, who's written extensively on stealth and black technology. In the 1950s, the Air Force exploited the UFO scenario to divert attention from the U-2, said Sweetman, editor of Defense Technology International magazine.

"Airline pilots who didn't know that a secret airplane was out there would see this object way up above them, and they would report it as a UFO," he said.

Those sightings led to "Project Blue Book," Sweetman said.

The Air Force research project on UFOs was actually designed to throw people off the track, making them think they'd seen a natural phenomenon or something unexplainable — not a secret airplane, he said. Sweetman didn't want to hazard a guess about whether Texans have spotted secret aircraft in development, but he was doubtful.

"Why would you fly it near a populated area at all?" he said.

Sweetman also didn't think the sightings had anything to do with the debut of the first F-35B Lightning II in Fort Worth. Lockheed Martin touts the fighter as the first one to combine stealth, short takeoff/vertical landing capability and supersonic speed.

And it's impossible to speculate whether the UFOs in central Texas were signs of a secret program, said retired Air Force Col. Tom Ehrhardt, a former Pentagon chief of the "Skunk Works" or the Strategy, Concepts and Doctrine Division.

In an about face, the military said 10 F-16s based at the Fort Worth reserve base were on a training mission from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Jan. 8 in airspace including that over Erath County.

Maj. Karl Lewis, a fighter wing spokesman, said it was just a mistake when he first told reporters the base had no planes in the sky that day.
"I did my best to correct it as soon as possible," Lewis said.

UFO Witness Claims Harassment

Ricky Sorrells is frustrated and a little angry. Since his interview with the Associated Press, Sorrells has stayed quiet regarding the daytime UFO sightings on his property near Dublin.

And, there is more than one reason for his silence.

Sorrells believes military officials have been harassing him by flying military aircraft over his property at low altitudes, at all hours of the day and night. Sorrells runs livestock on his place and said the cattle don’t react well to the disturbances. It’s also been hard to get any sleep.

Sorrells made international news along with other witnesses on Jan. 14 after the Associated Press contacted him for his story and took video of the exact spot the UFO was seen along with Sorrells’ description of the object.

Not just once, but four times, he claims to have seen the massive flying object he estimates to be the length of “three or four football fields.” He said he’s not sure about the size because the first time he saw it was the best view. At that time, the craft hovered directly over him in the woods about 300 feet above his head and his view was blocked by tree branches.

“I don’t know why it keeps coming back here,” Sorrells said.

He’s convinced that someone representing himself as a Lt. Colonel knows what it is — and Sorrells wants an explanation.

He said the man contacted him by telephone on Jan. 15, one day after his interview with the Associated Press.

“I didn’t worry about writing his name down or taking notes,” Sorrells said. “I didn’t know what was about to happen. But, I think he said he was with the Air Force.”

Sorrells said the conversation started out nice enough.

“He was sort of nice to me right off,” Sorrells said. “He asked to come and talk to me.”

Sorrells said he told the man that he needed time to think about it and then, “He (the man) became really arrogant.”

The caller told Sorrells he wasn’t taking “no” for an answer and would be out to talk to him. Sorrells again tried to politely tell the man he did not wish to have company.

After that, Sorrells said the conversation became heated and he told the man not to cross his cattle guard.

Sorrells said the man responded with, “ Son, we have the same caliber weapons as you do but a lot more of them.”

Looking back, Sorrells said he believes the man was in his area but not able to pinpoint exactly where he lived because he recently built a new home.

“I actually got up and looked out my window to see if I could see someone at the cattle guard. So I said if he was who he said he was, why didn’t he stop flying over my air space with all those helicopters,” Sorrells said. “And he informed me that it was not my air space — it was his. He told me if I’d quit talking about what I saw he would stop the helicopters.”

Sorrells said since that conversation, the helicopters have quit flying over his property but the F-16s haven’t slowed.

Before the conversation took place with the suspected military officer Sorrells related a late night experience with a large transport helicopter and three smaller helicopters.

“I get up at 2:30 a.m. to go to work and these helicopters kept flying over and I couldn’t sleep,” Sorrells said. “Because it was about time to get up and go to work, I just got up and went outside to see what I could.”

Sorrells said he has a spotlight on his pickup that he uses to look for coyotes.

“I went to my truck and turned on the spotlight and shined it up at them,” Sorrells said. “It was so close, I could see the pilot’s reaction. He threw up his arm to block the light. He was in one of the smaller helicopters.

“Then he turned toward me and I still have the light on. I started to feel uncomfortable so I turned off the light and waved and went back inside. I was thinking I had pushed the envelope.”

To top that off, Sorrells said an acquaintance, whom he would not name, and formerly a member of the military, told him, “You need to shut your mouth about what you saw.”

Sorrells said he tried to pull the man aside and asked him to explain his statement.

“He just kept saying the same thing and wouldn’t explain,” Sorrells said. “ Now he won’t speak to me.”

Sorrells said because the helicopters disappeared, he now feels the gentlemen was actually a member of the military, and was high enough in rank that he was able to stop that type of air traffic.

“If it is a military craft the American people need to know,” Sorrells said. “A lot of people have seen things around here. I know what I saw and so do they.”

Ricky Sorrells just wants answers. And, in light of what he's been through, it doesn't seem to be a lot to ask.

Witnessing an unidentified flying object four times since the beginning of the new year, then having military aircraft whizzing over his land and disrupting his sleep and livestock, followed by a string of mysterious phone calls and in person encounters from individuals demanding he “shut up” about what he saw, and landing unexpectedly in the international spotlight, has taken a toll on the 37-year-old man accustomed to the simple life.

“If you told me a while back that I would be sitting here talking to you about UFOs I would have said, ‘No way, not in a million years,” Sorrells said. “ Now, I know for the rest of my life I'll keep looking to find out what it was.”

Sorrells said he is receiving a lot of support from family and friends helping him to keep an eye on things. He said that support has been a great help to him.

“I'm not going to freak out or anything,” Sorrells said. “I just think the government should come forward and help us to figure out this thing. I think people should write to their congressman or something.”

Sorrells said soon after his Associated Press interview went around the world in mid-January - not only was he allegedly contacted by a Lt. Colonel telling him to keep quiet about what he saw, he was also contacted by a woman named Linda Moulton Howe.

Howe's Web site touts: “Earthfiles is a crossroads where experts, eyewitnesses and viewers meet to share the latest updates in earth and astronomical mysteries, in-depth reports that go beyond the 6 o'clock news. Earthfiles reporter and editor, Linda Moulton Howe, is an Emmy Award-winning TV producer, investigative reporter and author who goes directly to the men and women at the forefront of science and environmental challenges and to firsthand eyewitnesses of high strangeness. received the 2006 W3 Silver Award for excellence in news category. also received the 2003 WebAward for Standard of Excellence and the 2000 Encyclopedia Britannica Award honoring Internet excellence.”

Sorrells said he vaguely remembered listening to her on a radio program years ago while on a road trip and her name clicked with him. It was the only familiar name he knew and she promised to do an investigation so he agreed not to talk to anyone else until she could make the trip from New Mexico. Howe arrived in Dublin last week and stayed with Sorrells and his family to conduct the investigation and left late last week.

“I told her everything I knew and showed her my property,” Sorrels said. “After she left, I felt I had honored my commitment with her. Things have settled down a little and I feel free to talk about the experiences I have had. I just didn't want to do anything that would interfere with her investigation because I want the truth.”

He said the last time he saw the object he was able to get a video on his camera phone and said he has seen some other “pretty good footage” taken by others.

One night Sorrells said he had four helicopters flying at such low altitude that when a spotlight was shined up at them from Sorrells' pickup he could see the pilot throw his arm up in front of his eyes to block the light. But there has been another strange occurrence recently on his property that leads him to believe the military is involved. It was an unexpected visitor about 1 a.m. who may have left something behind.

“I was in bed asleep,” Sorrells said. “I keep my bird dogs on the east side of my house and three others on the west side. The black lab doesn't bark until someone comes across the cattle guard and the Catahoula doesn't bark until she actually sees someone. They were all barking so I got up to see what was going on.”

Sorrells said he walked to his bedroom window and looked out to the top of his driveway - he saw someone.

“I went around the bed and grabbed my rifle,” Sorrells said.

His family was still sleeping, so with one hand on his gun and one hand on his backdoor knob, he peered through the window of the door to see if he could spot the intruder again.

“He had positioned himself in between the car and the pickup 40 to 50 feet from my back door,” Sorrells said. “He stood staring at me rocking back and forth. I didn't think his feet were moving but the next morning when looking at his tracks I could tell they were.”

Sorrels said it was cold and misting rain and it was obvious the guy was “dressed for the elements with a heavy parka-like coat.”

He said he strained to see if the man carried a gun but could not see one but could clearly see the face of someone he thought to be in his late 20s or early 30s judging from the way he “walked and acted.”

“I'm trying to decide whether or not to open the door,” Sorrells said. “We're just standing there face to face looking at each other. I'm thinking he's dressed for the elements and the dogs are raising such a ruckus he must know he's in danger of being caught. That's when I realized he wanted me to see him.”

Sorrells said the trespasser had positioned himself in such a way he decided he could be vulnerable if opened his door. He thought of his family and then the man slowly turned and walked into the woods.

“He walked through an area where I'd cleared the brush so apparently he'd been there before because he knew where to go,” Sorrells said.

Sorrells said shortly after the unwelcome caller disappeared the dogs calmed down and he stayed up the rest of the night to keep watch.

Later, when walking through the woods on his property with Howe, he decided to return to a bare spot where his property line ends at a fence.

“It is washed out there and I like to go there to look for deer and turkey tracks.” Sorrells said. He said he's an avid hunter and keeps abreast of the wildlife on his place. He said he had not been to this particular spot in about a month.

“The first thing I saw was a man's footprint,” Sorrells said. “Ms. Howe videotaped me putting my foot beside it. The sun was going down and I saw something shiny.”

Sorrells said he walked over and picked up a bullet - a shiny new 25-06 Remington - with some dotted tarnished smudges.

“I think the man that I saw that night dropped this bullet and the tarnished spots are from the misting rain that night,” Sorrells said. “ I just think it was the military showing me they could get to me if they wanted to.”

Sorrells said he just doesn't think a hunter poaching on his property would've dropped the bullet. He said he doesn't have trouble with poachers. While he knows there is no way to prove it could have been from the same man it's something he keeps mulling over. Sorrells returned home with the bullet in hand and took it apart to look at the powder to see if he could glean any information at all. A local gun and ammunition authority said there was no way to identify if such a bullet was from a military source.

“Talking about military powder is like talking about military gasoline,” he said. “There is no difference.”

Meanwhile, Sorrells said he and other witnesses are considering setting up a Web site to encourage people to do what they can to influence government participation in finding out about the curious, sometimes frightening, sightings.

“I've heard that other countries are releasing information on what they know,” Sorrells said. “We're thinking of calling it (the site) ‘Stephenville Lights.' Too many people have seen something not to try and continue finding out about it. We want to know what it was.”

Turning Physics on its Ear

Has college dropout done the impossible and created a perpetual motion machine?

Thane Heins is nervous and hopeful. It's Jan. 24, a Thursday afternoon, and in four days the Ottawa-area native will travel to Boston where he'll demonstrate an invention that appears – though he doesn't dare say it – to operate as a perpetual motion machine.

The audience, esteemed Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor Markus Zahn, could either deflate Heins' heretical claims or add momentum to a 20-year obsession that has broken up his marriage and lost him custody of his two young daughters.

Zahn is a leading expert on electromagnetic and electronic systems. In a rare move for any reputable academic, he has agreed to give Heins' creation an open-minded look rather than greet it with outright dismissal.

It's a pivotal moment. The invention, at its very least, could moderately improve the efficiency of induction motors, used in everything from electric cars to ceiling fans. At best it means a way of tapping the mysterious powers of electromagnetic fields to produce more work out of less effort, seemingly creating electricity from nothing.

Such an unbelievable invention would challenge the laws of physics, a no-no in the rigid world of serious science. Imagine a battery system in an all-electric car that can be recharged almost exclusively by braking and accelerating, or what Heins calls "regenerative acceleration."

No charging from the grid. No assistance from gasoline. No cost of fuelling up. No way, say the skeptics.

"It sounds too good to be true," concedes Heins, who formed a company in 2005 called Potential Difference Inc. to develop and market his invention. "We get dismissed pretty quickly sometimes."

It's for this reason the 46-year-old inventor has learned to walk on thin ice when dealing with academics and engineers, who he must win over to be taken seriously. Credibility, after all, can't be invented. It must be earned. "I have to be humble. If you say the wrong thing at the wrong time, you can lose support."

The creation in question is a new kind of generator called the Perepiteia, which in Greek theatre means an action that has the opposite effect of what its doer intended. Heins torques up the definition to mean "a sudden reversal of fortune that's a windfall for humanity."

Deep down, Heins has high hopes. But he also realizes that merely using those controversial words – "perpetual motion" – usually brands a person as batty. In 2006, an Irish company called Steorn placed an advertisement in The Economist calling on all the world's scientists to validate its magnet-based "free energy" technology.

Steorn was met with intense skepticism and accused of being a scam or hoax. Seventeen months later the company has failed, despite worldwide attention, to prove anything under scrutiny. Well-educated people, from Leonardo da Vinci to Harvard-trained engineer Bruce De Palma (older brother of film director Brian De Palma), have made similar claims of perpetual motion only to be slammed down by the mainstream scientific community.

Heins has an even greater uphill battle. He isn't an engineer. He doesn't have a graduate degrees in physics. He never even finished his electronics program at Heritage College in Gatineau, Quebec. "I have mild dyslexia and don't do well in math, so I didn't do very well in school," he says.

What he does have is a chef's diploma, and spent time as chef at the Canadian Museum of Civilization before launching his own restaurant in Renfrew called the Old Town Hall Tea Room. He has also had political ambitions. In 1999 he ran unsuccessfully as a candidate for the Green Party of Ontario, deciding a year later to run as an independent in the federal election.

Today, Heins is focused on showing his invention to anybody willing to see it, in hopes that somebody smarter than him will give it credibility. His long-time friend, Kim Cunningham, manager of communications and government relations at the Ottawa Centre for Research and Innovation (OCRI) is working part-time with Potential Difference to help get the message out.

Together, they have demonstrated the Perepiteia to a number of labs and universities across North America, including the University of Virginia, Michigan State University, the University of Toronto and Queens University.

"It's generally always the same reaction," says Heins. "There's a bit of a scramble on the part of the observer to put what they're seeing into some sort of context with what they know. They can't explain it. They don't know what it is."

He'd be happy if somebody did, even if the news was bad. His wife has kicked him out. He doesn't earn an income. He can't pay child support. The certainty would be welcome. "I've tried to quit many times, and thought if I could just be a normal guy I would have a normal life ... But I had this idea and I believe it works."

Others want to believe – or at least help out. Cunningham, whose brother is general manager at Angus Glen Golf Club, introduced Heins to the club's president, Kevin Thistle. For two years Thistle has acted as angel investor, providing start-up capital needed to incorporate Potential Difference, file patents and continue research.

Cunningham's boss, OCRI president Jeffrey Dale, helped open doors at the University of Ottawa and make introductions to its dean of engineering. As a result, Heins teamed up last fall with Riadh Habash, a professor at the university's school of information technology and engineering.

"Dr. Habash has essentially rolled out the red carpet," says Heins, explaining that he now has access to a university lab and all the equipment he needs to test and simulate his generator.

In an interview with the Toronto Star, Habash was cautious but matter-of-fact with what he's seen so far. "It accelerates, but when it comes to an explanation, there is no backing theory for it. That's why we're consulting MIT. But at this time we can't support any claim."

In the meantime, Heins has been on a letter-writing campaign to raise money for his mission. He's written former U.S. vice-president Al Gore, Virgin Group founder and billionaire Richard Branson and John Doerr at venture capital powerhouse Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. He's also tried to contact entrepreneur Elon Musk, chairman of electric car upstart Tesla Motors, and the "ReCharge IT" project run by Google's philanthropic arm.

So far no bites, though there have been nibbles. Heins has had discussions with a well-known investor in Oregon, known to many as the "godfather of start-ups," who is apparently flirting with the idea of investing in Potential Difference. "We got the impression ... he's not necessarily interested in making a tonne of money, he just wants to see us succeed."

Just before the big day at MIT, the Star spoke with professor Markus Zahn about what he expected to observe.

"It's hard for me to give an opinion," said Zahn, who admitted he was excited to see the demonstration. "I don't believe it will violate the laws of physics. You're not going to get more energy out than you put in."

He said it's easy for people to set up their tests wrong and misinterpret what they see. "You've got to look closely."

It's now Jan. 28 – D Day. Heins has modified his test so the effects observed are difficult to deny. He holds a permanent magnet a few centimetres away from the driveshaft of an electric motor, and the magnetic field it creates causes the motor to accelerate. It went well.

Contacted by phone a few hours after the test, Zahn is genuinely stumped – and surprised. He said the magnet shouldn't cause acceleration. "It's an unusual phenomena I wouldn't have predicted in advance. But I saw it. It's real. Now I'm just trying to figure it out."

There's no talk of perpetual motion. No whisper of broken scientific laws or free energy. Zahn would never go there – at least not yet. But he does see the potential for making electric motors more efficient, and this itself is no small feat.

"To my mind this is unexpected and new, and it's worth exploring all the possible advantages once you're convinced it's a real effect," he added. "There are an infinite number of induction machines in people's homes and everywhere around the world. If you could make them more efficient, cumulatively, it could make a big difference."

Driving home – he can't afford to fly – Heins is exhausted but encouraged. He says Zahn will, and must, evaluate what he saw on his own terms and time. What's preventing the engineer from grasping it right away, he says, is his education, his scientific training.

Step by step, Heins is making progress, but where it will all lead remains uncertain.

Time Travellers From the Future "Could Be Here in Weeks"

Physicists around the world are excitedly awaiting the start up of the £4.65 billion Large Hadron Collider, LHC - the most powerful atom-smasher ever built - which is supposed to shed new light on the particles and forces at work in the cosmos and reproduce conditions that date to near the Big Bang of creation.
Prof Irina Aref'eva and Dr Igor Volovich, mathematical physicists at the Steklov Mathematical Institute in Moscow believe that the vast experiment at CERN, the European particle physics centre near Geneva in Switzerland, may turn out to be the world's first time machine, reports New Scientist.

The debut in early summer could provide a landmark because traveling into the past is only possible - if it is possible at all - as far back as the point of creation of the first time machine. That means 2008 could become "Year Zero" for temporal travel, they argue.

Time travel was born when Albert Einstein's colleague, Kurt Gödel, used Einstein's theory of relativity to show that travel into the past was possible.

Ever since he unveiled this idea in 1949, eminent physicists have argued against time travel because it undermines ideas of cause and effect to create paradoxes: a time traveller could go back to kill his grandfather so that he is never born in the first place.

But, sixty years later, there is still no fundamental reason why time travellers cannot put historians out of business.

But the Russians argue that when the energies of the LHC are concentrated into a subatomic particle - a trillionth the size of a mosquito - they can do strange things to the fabric of the universe, which is a blend of space and time that scientists called spacetime.

While Earth's gravity produces gentle distortions in spacetime the LHC energy can distort time so much that it loops back on itself. These loops are known to physicists as "closed timelike curves" and they ought, at least in theory, to allow us to revisit some past moment.

The scheme chimes with one laid out in 1988, when Prof Kip Thorne and colleagues at the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, showed that wormholes, or tunnels through spacetime, would allow time travel, a scheme popularised by Carl Sagan in his novel - made into a film - Contact.

Prof Aref'eva and Dr Volovich believe the LHC could create wormholes and so allow a form of time travel. "We realised that closed timelike curves and wormholes could also be a result of collisions of particles," Prof Aref'eva says.

There are still plenty of obstacles for the likes of Dr Who, however. Not least of them is the fact that these are mini wormholes, so only subatomic particles are small enough to travel through them.

They say that whether subatomic time travel in the LHC would open the doors for human scale time travelers "is a deep and interesting question" but stress that "these problems, and many others as well, require further investigations."

Probably the best we can hope for is that the LHC may show a signature of the wormholes' existence, Dr Volovich says. If some of the energy from collisions in the LHC goes missing, it could be because the collisions created particles that have traveled into a wormhole and through time.

One sticking point until now for wormhole concepts is finding an exotic kind of material capable of keeping the maw of the wormhole open for time travel.

Dark energy - a mysterious antigravity force that is thought to pervade the universe - could, they say, be just what is needed to keep the entrance to a wormhole open, at least according to one family of ideas about its nature, where it is called phantom energy.

If a blend of colliding particles and phantom energy does create a wormhole in Geneva this year, an advanced civilisation could find it in their history books, pinpoint the moment, and take advantage of their technology to pay us a visit.

"The observational evidence still allows for phantom energy," says Robert Caldwell, a physicist at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire. "As for Aref'eva and Volovich's speculation that the LHC will produce the stuff of time machines - ugh!"

A leading scientist who believes that time travel may be possible, Prof David Deutsch of Oxford University, comments: "It's speculative in the extreme, but not cranky. For various reasons I don't think the mechanism they propose would work (i.e. provide a pathway for messages from the future) even if their speculations are true."

Dr Brian Cox of the University of Manchester adds: "The energies of billions of cosmic rays that have been hitting the Earth's atmosphere for five billion years far exceed those we will create at the LHC, so by this logic time travelers should be here already. If these wormholes appear I will personally eat the hat I was given for my first birthday before I received it."

Electricity Woman Causes Lights to Flicker

The ability to control electricity with your mind may seem the stuff of science fiction. But one woman claims such a power is part of her everyday reality.

Debbie Wolf says she is one of Britain's growing number of "sliders" - people who believe their presence interferes with household appliances, radios and light bulbs. She claims she can turn street lamps off, send digital clocks haywire and even defrost her freezer.

Debbie claims she is one of Britain's growing army of 'sliders' - people who believe their presence causes havoc with household appliances, radios and light bulbs

But 38-year-old Miss Wolf admits that she has no control over her power.

"It happens when I'm stressed or if I'm chewing something over in my mind, but not if I'm annoyed," she said.

"It has never been full on whammy all day, but it happens frequently, such as when I'm excited."

Miss Wolf says she once blew a series of street lamps while riding by on a motorbike. And she uses a wind-up alarm clock because her reaction on waking up in the morning "scrambles" digital ones.

Her supposed ability, dubbed Street Light Interference syndrome - or SLI - by experts, has earned her international fame. In Japan, she has been likened to heroines from cult Manga comic strips. She has also been compared to characters from the BBC2 show Heroes - in which ordinary people develop superhero abilities.

Miss Wolf, from Telscombe Cliffs, near Brighton, said: "The light has been faulty outside all the homes I have lived in and I'm always draining the batteries in remote controls.

"I often come back home to find a pool of water on the floor because the fridge-freezer has defrosted."

For a woman who believes she interferes with electrical equipment, however, Miss Wolf has chosen a risky job. But her work as a pathology support officer at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton has never been affected, she said.

Hilary Evans, who writes about the paranormal and who coined the term "sliders", said Miss Wolf brings about unusually strong effects. Debbie Wolf has an unexplained ability to make lights go out when she is stressed

"What happened to Debbie has happened to a great many other people, though her experience was more dramatic than most," he said.

Sceptics, however, dismiss SLI as wishful thinking and coincidence. It is yet to be demonstrated in a contolled laboratory experiment, they argue.

Professor Richard Wiseman, who studies paranormal phenomena at the University of Hertfordshire, suspects SLI is caused by "observer bias".

He said: "Street lamps are going on and off all the time because they are faulty or because their timers aren't set properly.

"People only have to walk under a couple of lamps going off to think that they might be the cause."

Recently, the Mail put Miss Wolf 's power to the test. Sitting in the hospital canteen, she was given a torch, a mobile phone and a radio on which to use her electrical influence - but none responded to her interference.

The lights in the canteen, the battery-powered clock on the wall and the electric tills also continued to operate normally. But Miss Wolf explained that she has to be in the right mood for her powers to work.

"I have to be completely lost in my thoughts - usually thinking deeply about something that is troubling me."
