Initial DNA Analysis of Paracas Elongated Skull Released

Paracas is a desert peninsula located within the Pisco Province in the Inca Region, on the south coast of Peru.  It is here were Peruvian archaeologist, Julio Tello, made an amazing discovery in 1928 – a massive and elaborate graveyard containing tombs filled with the remains of individuals with the largest elongated skulls found anywhere in the world. These have come to be known as the ‘Paracas skulls’. In total, Tello found more than 300 of these elongated skulls, which are believed to date back around 3,000 years. A DNA analysis has now been conducted on one of the skulls and expert Brien Foerster has released preliminary information regarding these enigmatic skulls.

It is well-known that most cases of skull elongation are the result of cranial deformation, head flattening, or head binding, in which the skull is intentionally deformed by applying force over a long period of time. It is usually achieved by binding the head between two pieces of wood, or binding in cloth. However, while cranial deformation changes the shape of the skull, it does not alter its volume, weight, or other features that are characteristic of a regular human skull.

The Paracas skulls, however, are different.  The cranial volume is up to 25 percent larger and 60 percent heavier than conventional human skulls, meaning they could not have been intentionally deformed through head binding/flattening. They also contain only one parietal plate, rather than two. The fact that the skulls’ features are not the result of cranial deformation means that the cause of the elongation is a mystery, and has been for decades.

Mr. Juan Navarro, owner and director of the local museum, called the Paracas History Museum, which houses a collection of 35 of the Paracas skulls, allowed the taking of samples from 5 of the skulls. The samples consisted of hair, including roots, a tooth, skull bone and skin, and this process was carefully documented via photos and video. Samples from three skulls were sent to the geneticist, although the geneticist was not given any information about what they came from until after the genetic testing, so as not to create any preconceived ideas.  

The results of a DNA analysis of one of the skulls are now back, and Brien Foerster, author of more than ten books and an authority on the ancient elongated headed people of South America, has just revealed the preliminary results of the analysis. He reports on the geneticist's findings:

    It had mtDNA (mitochondrial DNA) with mutations unknown in any human, primate, or animal known so far. But a few fragments I was able to sequence from this sample indicate that if these mutations will hold we are dealing with a new human-like creature, very distant from Homo sapiens, Neanderthals and Denisovans.

The implications are of course huge. “I am not sure it will even fit into the known evolutionary tree,” the geneticist wrote. He added that if the Paracas individuals were so biologically different, they would not have been able to interbreed with humans.

The result of this analysis is only phase one of many phases of analysis due to take place.  The next tests will involve having the initial test replicated, and conducted on other skulls, so that the results can be compared to see if there are any specific Paracas characteristics. We will update when more details emerge.

Has the Voynich Manuscript Been Decoded?

For decades, researchers have been trying in vain to decipher ancient texts written on the Voynich manuscript - yet they may have been looking for inspiration in the wrong place.

A U.S. botanist studied illustrations of the plants throughout the 15th century book and pinpointed a number of them to the Central American region now known as Mexico.

Dr. Arthur Tucker claims at least 37 of the 303 plants would have grown in the region during the 15th and 16th century and believes the text is, therefore, written in the Aztec language of Nahuatl.

The writing is so bizarre, sceptics have stated the book is a hoax or that the writing is nonsense.

The Voynich manuscript was discovered in an Italian monastery in 1912 by book dealer Wilfred Voynich.
Carbon dating suggests the manuscript was created between approximately 1404 and 1438, during the Italian Renaissance.

The 240 pages of the book are made from a type of parchment produced using calf skin, known as vellum, and are decorated with illustrations, diagrams and a mysterious text written from left to right.

Each page is decorated with illustrations, diagrams and a mysterious text written from left to right.

Due to its mysterious nature, the text has been studied by cryptographers around the world, yet no-one has succeeded in deciphering the reams of written passages.

This has led to many people claim the book is hoax, or that the writing is nonsense. 

Due to the manuscript’s discovery in Italy, many researchers believe the book to have originated in Europe, however, the latest research from Dr. Tucker suggests it may have been written by the Aztecs in what is now modern-day Mexico.

The text has been studied by cryptographers around the world, yet no-one has succeeded in deciphering the reams of written passages.

Dr. Arthur Tucker from Delaware University took a different approach, and instead, studied the plants depicted throughout the book.

He discovered similarities between specific plants in the manuscript and illustrations of plants he had spotted in his collection of 16th century Mexican records.

For example, Dr. Tucker and fellow researcher Rexford Talbert said one plant in the book bears a resemblance to the picture of a soap plant (xiuhamolli) seen in a Mexican codex from 1552.

While another example includes the illustration of the Ipomoea murucoides, taken from the Mexican Codex Cruz-Badianus, which has an identical style to the Ipomoea arborescens in the manuscript.

In total, the researchers linked 37 of the 303 plants in the manuscript to illustrations in ancient Mexican books covering botany across Texas, California and Nicaragua.

If the text is written in the language of Nahuatl, the botanists claim they can find the name of the plants in the manuscript and may be able to use these to form a basic code from which to crack the rest of the text.

For example, a Voynich illustration of a cactus pad or fruit is shown near the name ‘nashtli’, which Tucker and Talbert claim is a variant of the word ‘nochtil’ - the Nahuatl name for the fruit of the prickly pear.

Nahuatl originated in Central Mexico during the 7th century. It was the spoken predominantly by the Aztecs.

Following the Spanish conquest of Mexico in the 16th century, the alphabet was replaced with Latin.

Nahuatl became a literary language, used in poetry and passages, similar to the Voynich manuscript.

Varieties of Nahuatl are still spoken by approximately 1.5 million Nahua people in Central Mexico.

UFO Conspiracies From The Shadowy Side of The Universe - Part 1
By Sean Casteel

“The Conspiracy Journal” is a venerable publication that has gone unnoticed by a huge swathe of readers who most likely would enjoy receiving a free subscription, either of the print or online editions. The print edition, which is sent through the mail several times a year, is published by Timothy Green Beckley of Global Communications and covers a wide range of conspiracy-related topics, from the UFO cover-up to government mind control efforts to covert political intrigue of all kinds. The online chores are handled by Mr. Tim R. Swartz, who, in addition to being the author of “The Lost Journals of Nikola Tesla,” co-hosts his own weekly ipod show, “The Outer Edge.”

For the purposes of this article, we concern ourselves only with Beckley’s editorial expertise and his longtime preference for printed publications as opposed to the online “blogazine” types, which are just not his “cup of tea” – with or without the saucers!

But don’t despair that such a gem of “punk/alternative paranormal journalism” has gotten by you somehow. Beckley has recently released a collection of past articles from the magazine and has titled it – a no brainer – “Conspiracy Journal Reader: The Darkest, Deepest Secrets,” which features some of the best material published there by an impressive roster of writers. There are a total of 37 articles in the book, any one of which will fascinate those already predisposed to believe that something wicked is lurking around the next proverbial corner that has the intention of controlling and manipulating an unsuspecting populace. Those few who are still “unsuspecting” will quickly revise that thinking after reading “Conspiracy Journal Reader.”


For example, writer William Hamilton III (author of “Cosmic Top Secret” and “Time Travel Now”) contributes an article called “Area 51 Breeding Tanks.” He begins by recounting a story told to him by abductee Christa Tilton, who claims that in 1987 she was taken by two small grey aliens to a hillside location, where she encountered a man dressed in a military-type jumpsuit. She was led through a series of computerized checkpoints and traveled on some kind of “transit vehicle” to an area where she was weighed and issued an identification card. At that point, she was told they had just entered Level One of a seven-level underground facility. After being moved to Level Five, she saw alien craft and greys as well as large tanks with computerized gauges.

Hamilton, of course, is just warming up. He also tells the tale of a man, given the pseudonym Thomas C., who was at one time a security officer in the facility and could no longer cope with the disturbing things he had seen there. He decided to leave his job and take some evidence with him. He took over 30 photos, collected documents and removed a security camera video tape that had recorded aliens and government personnel working side-by-side. He made five copies of everything and then concealed the originals.

Now it was time to flee and go into hiding. But when he went home to pick up his wife and son, he found a van and government agents waiting for him. His wife and son had already been kidnapped. A fellow worker named K. Lomas had alerted the authorities, and Thomas C. was now in even deeper trouble. The agents demanded the return of the evidence Thomas C. had collected in exchange for getting his wife and child back. When it became apparent that his family would be used in biological experiments and not returned unharmed, he decided to “get lost,” as Hamilton puts it.

 After explaining some of Thomas C.’s background, which included several years working as a security officer for the Air Force and the Rand Corporation, Hamilton   discusses more of what Thomas C. saw at the underground facility, located in Dulce, New Mexico. Thomas C. alleges that there were over 18,000 greys at Dulce, as well as reptilian humanoids there. A tube shuttle system connecting Dulce to Area 51 in Nevada and another facility in Page, Arizona, is also part of the package. Dulce’s Level Six is privately called “Nightmare Hall,” where genetic experiments are conducted on fish, seals, birds and mice, producing creatures that are vastly altered from their original forms. Even more chillingly, there are multi-armed and multi-legged humans and several cages and vats of humanoid, bat-like monstrosities, some as tall as seven feet, to be found on Level Six.

Things reached a climax for Thomas C. when he saw humans in cages on Level Seven, many of whom were dazed or drugged and crying out for help.

“We were told they were hopelessly insane,” Thomas C. said, “and involved in high-risk drug tests to cure insanity. We were told to never speak to them at all.”

DEEP INSIDE THE LAIR OF THE SERPENT RACE                                              

Even as one shudders to think this story could be true, “Conspiracy Journal Reader” moves on to other equally bizarre subjects. I have an article of my own reprinted in the book about Zulu shaman Credo Mutwa, and my primary source was an interview from “Spectrum Magazine” conducted by Rick Martin.

The late Harvard psychiatrist, Dr. John Mack, in his book “Passport To The Cosmos” (1999), devoted a chapter to Credo and his lifelong encounters with friendly, guardian spirits who were quite unlike the greys and reptilians Credo would deal with later as an adult. Nevertheless, Credo would seem like an unlikely source for information on conspiracy theory, but the Zulu culture from which he sprang takes for granted the existence of reptilian aliens/shape-shifters, though the place where the reptilians originate is still unknown to them.

“It is said that these creatures feed on us human beings,” Credo said, “and that they at one time challenged God himself to war because they wanted full control of the universe. And God fought a terrible battle against them and He defeated them, injured them, and forced them to hide in cities underground. They hide in deep cavities underground because they are always feeling cold. In these cavities, we are told, there are huge fires which are kept going by slaves – human, zombie-like slaves.”

These defeated reptiles are not capable of eating solid food and must survive on human blood. They also “feed” on the power or energy that is generated by human warfare and violence and the terror such bloodshed induces.

“There ARE such creatures,” Credo said, “and the sooner skeptics among us face up to this fact, the better it shall be. Why is humankind not progressing? Why are we running around in a great circle of self-destruction and mutual destruction? People are basically good; I believe this. People don’t want to start wars. People don’t want to destroy the world in which they stay, but there are creatures, or there is power that is driving we human beings toward self-annihilation. And the sooner we recognize this, the better.”   

Later in the interview with Rick Martin, Credo dropped quite a bombshell.

“Far too many people,” Credo said, “fall into the temptation of looking upon these ‘aliens’ as supernatural creatures. They are just solid creatures, sir. They are like us; and furthermore, I’m going to make a statement here which will come as a surprise: the Grey aliens, sir, are edible. Their flesh is protein, just as animal flesh on Earth is, but anyone who ingests Grey alien flesh comes very, very close to death. I nearly did.”

He next told the story of how the alien flesh came into his hands.

“You see,” he said, “in Lesotho there is a mountain called Laribe; it is called Crying Stone Mountain. On several occasions, in the last 50 years or so, alien craft have crashed against this mountain. One such incident was reported in the newspapers not so long ago. An African who believes that these creatures are gods, when they find the corpse of a dead Grey alien, they take it, put in a bag, and drag it into the bush, where they dismember it and ritually eat it. But some of them die as a result of ingesting the thing.”

Credo said that a friend of his from Lesotho gave him the flesh from what the friend called a “sky god.”

“I was skeptical,” Credo said. “He gave me a small lump of grey, rather dry stuff which, he said, was the flesh. And he and I and his wife ritually ate this thing one night.”

Credo did not in fact die from sharing this otherworldly dinner, but it is not possible to tell the rest of the story in the space available here. Those who wish a crash course in what Credo believes and in reptilian aliens in general should be steered in the direction of a book by Commander X and Branton. “Reality of the Serpent Race and the Subterranean Origin of UFOs” reveals more from the fertile mind of the Zulu shaman, who is now well into his eighties and has been confronting the reptilian “menace” for as long as he can remember.

Not surprisingly, Credo confirmed one of the pet theories of his mentor David Icke, namely that many global leaders are really shape-shifting reptilians – people like Queen Elizabeth, George Bush, Bill Clinton and many other elite rulers who have long been associated with the bloodline of the Illuminati, a secret society said to be in charge of political and economic matters worldwide. When pressed for more information, Credo seemed uneasy, as if there might be serious, dangerous consequences for talking about such things.

Flames Roaring Out of Her Mouth
By Malcolm Smith

In this present-day know-it-all scientific age, a woman can erupt into flame in the full view of witnesses and her body be ravaged with flames while sitting on newspapers in a chair and neither the papers nor the chair suffer any fire damage, and the facts will be denied in a coroner's court because such things cannot be.

That comment came from page185 of The Entrancing Flame by John E. Heymer (Little, Brown and Company, 1996). I had finally got around to reading it, and it took me by surprise. For those unfamiliar with the concept, spontaneous human combustion (SHC) is a phenomenon assumed to have taken place because the victims are burned to ashes without any obvious source of fire, and with the damage limited to the body and the seat to which it was attached, and everything else in the room being untouched - including the victim's legs, which are presumed to have been out of the circle of combustion. But this was the first time I was aware that the phenomenon had been actually witnessed.

As a forensically trained police scene of crime officer in Wales, Mr Heymer had attended many grisly scenes of death. He became interested in SHC when, in 1980, he was called to the scene of one such event, and saw the refusal of the establishment to consider the evidence. As a result, he does not, like most authors, recount the "classic cases", but concentrates on those he himself had investigated, or those in which he had read the official police and coroner's reports.
Now, the official explanation of SHC is the "wick effect", whereby a fire started on a person's clothing burns his flesh, causing the fat to melt and act as a wick for the whole body. Although it is superficially plausible, Heymer shows that the scientist who originated the theory also pointed out how difficult it was to achieve in practice. Indeed, the few cases where it has been proven to have occurred all bear the following features:

The victim was certainly dead when the burning commenced.
There was a definite, identifiable source of ignition. In one case, the victim suffered a heart attack, and her hair fell into an open fire when she collapsed forward. In another, a murderer attempted to burn the body by using a pint of starter fluid.
    The bones were reduced to a grey ash, but were often incompletely consumed.
    Once the fire started, the clothes burned normally, independently of the body.
    The surroundings were well ventilated.

In contrast, the common features of SHC were:

    The victim was alive when the fire started, as revealed by the carbon monoxide discolouration of the remaining flesh.
    No obvious source of fire could be found.
    The bones were reduced to a white ash, indicating a temperature higher than regular combustion, and higher than that of a crematorium.
    The extremities of the legs, outside the zone of combustion, were unconsumed, and there was a distinct line where the clothing was uncharred.
Although this is probably not essential to the phenomenon, in the cases investigated by the author, the room was more or less hermetically sealed, such that a normal fire would soon splutter out once the original oxygen had been consumed.

All right, I can hear you say, but what about the eye witnesses you mentioned? We shall start off with the simplest cases first.
Bailey. An alcoholic tramp in a derelict house. When the firemen arrived, they discovered a blue flame issuing with the force of a blowlamp from a split four inches wide in his abdomen. It was necessary to shove the hose into his abdomen in order to extinguish it. And it had been going on for at least seven minutes, from the time the fire was first reported. True, nobody actually witnessed the commencement of the fire, but if anybody can suggest how it might have happened, they will have provided a great service to science.

Jack Angel. Strictly speaking, nobody actually saw this fire start either. What happened was that Jack Angel, a travelling salesman, parked his mobile home in the carpark of a motel, went to sleep, and didn't wake up for another four days. When he did, he found:

    [h]is right hand was completely charred black. He had a hole in his chest which he described as 'this big explosion in my chest'. He was also burned between his groin, on both his legs and one ankle and up and down his back in spots.

Incredibly, he felt no pain. Instead, staggering like a drunk and only half conscious of his injuries, he showered, dressed, and went into the cocktail lounge of the motel. He collapsed and was rushed to hospital. About midnight, he woke up in excruciating pain. A doctor told him he had been burned internally, but not externally. They had to amputate his right hand and part of his forearm.
Amazingly, the bed sheets in his mobile home revealed no sign of burning. And there was absolutely nothing which could have explained the fire.
Wilfred Gowthorpe. Aged 71 and described as "basically a lonely man", Mr Gowthorpe had been decorating the house of Mike and Sandra Stubbins. Mrs Stubbins left the kitchen for about half an hour, only to return and find the paste bucket and brush in the sink, the cold water tap running, and Mr Gowthorpe in a corner, apparently in a trance. Thinking he had suffered a stroke, she called a doctor, and her husband. The doctor immediately noticed that his left hand and arm were burned up to the elbow, and immediately had him rushed to hospital. Two fingers were charred so severely that they required amputation.
The surprising thing was that his thumb was all right. Also, his left sleeve was still buttoned up to the wrist. Also, although it was a cold day, Mr Gowthorpe was soaked in sweat, and his clothes were also wet, except for the left sleeve of both coat and shirt. There was not a single thing in the kitchen which could have been responsible. Not only that, but up to the time he died from a heart attack eighteen months later, the victim failed to remember a single thing about the accident.
From these two cases, as well as the fact that, in cases where the victims had died, they had not moved from their seats, Mr Heymer deduces that the victims were all in some sort of "trance" or altered state of consciousness, and feeling no pain. Furthermore, in all the cases he was able to investigate, the victims were lonely, or at least socially isolated, so he believes their psychological state is somehow implicated.
Not only that, but Heymer himself had attended a scene where a pilot had been burned in a crash, and he knows that cooking human flesh smells like succulent roast pork. But Mrs Stubbins reported an indescribably foul odour at the time. More of this later.
By now, a sceptic will say that, although the phenomena are difficult to explain, so far no-one has actually witnessed a person burst into flame. That brings us to the final case, which inspired the quote at the top of this post: Jeannie Saffin. Her relatives asked Heymer to look into it, because they got no joy from the coroner. He read all the official reports, and interviewed all the witnesses.
Due to a bungled forceps delivery, she never progressed beyond a mental age of five or six. Now aged 61, and unable to even understand the concept of death, she had spent the previous year moping and pining over the loss of her mother, to whom she had been almost pathologically attached. On that fateful day in 1982, as usual, seated sadly in the kitchen, some sheets of newspaper between her and the chair, her hands clasped despondently on her lap. The day was hot and humid, and the only flame present was the pilot light on the grill. Her aged father was writing something at the kitchen table, while her brother-in-law, Donald Carroll, was upstairs decorating.
Suddenly, she burst into flames. Calling to Donald for assistance, her father got her to the sink and started throwing cups of water at her, suffering burns to his own hands in the process. She was apparently in some sort of trance, and impervious to pain, but was sufficiently alert to come with him to the sink. Donald rushed down, and saw flames issuing from her abdomen and mouth, "like a dragon". Although partially deaf from military service, he could hear the roaring sound of the flames issuing from her mouth. Quickly, he grabbed a large saucepan full of water and threw it over her, extinguishing the flames. He estimated that the whole process had lasted just a minute. Also, there was in indescribably foul odour, the same as with Wilf Gowthorpe.
The newspaper on which she had been sitting was untouched. There was no clothing ash on the floor. Her red nylon cardigan was melting, but not in flames.
She was rushed to hospital, where she died eight days later, suffering from burns over 30 to 40 percent of her body. There were full thickness burns over her face and both surfaces of the hands, meaning that the skin had been destroyed to expose the underlying fat. Further burns, both full thickness and deep dermal were present on the neck, shoulders, chest, left arm, thighs and left buttock, with superficial patches on the abdomen. And what sort of external fire could burn the face down to the fat without touching the hair?
In Heymer's opinion, this is all consistent with the centres of the combustion being the two parts of the body which were uncovered: her face and hands. The burns on the midriff resulted from her hands being held clasped on her lap. He also thought that she had been hyperventilating, thus alternately sucking in and breathing out, "like a dragon", the flames from her face.
The coroner ruled that death was by misadventure ie accident, but didn't say what the accident was. He told the relatives that it couldn't be spontaneous human combustion, because such a thing doesn't happen.

There is one other point to note. I have quoted only those cases in which witnesses were involved. Mr Heymer himself managed to track down quite a few others in his own bailiwick. This therefore raises the question: just how common is the phenomenon? He quotes Ron Westrum's finding that many quite common events can go unnoticed if people fail to recognize and publicise them. His example is the battered child syndrome. Originally, just a few doctors recorded individual cases, but because people initially refused to believe that significantly large numbers of parents were going so far as to break their children's bones, no-one took any notice. Now authorities see it all the time - perhaps more often than its presence actually demands. I could add another example. As I pointed out before, one in ten people claim to have encountered a ghost. It is unlikely that all their experiences are genuine but, in any case, you won't find them reported in the newspapers. However, ghosts are part of our cultural heritage, so you will hear them discussed among friends. But spontaneous human combustion never gets reported by the press, nor do friends sit down and chat about it. So how common is it?
Mr Heymer discovered that the Home Office Pathologist, Dr G. S. Andrews, dealt with six cases per year in his own area, in which the abdominal area was totally destroyed. From this he deduced an average of 200 cases per year in the UK alone.
It makes you think.

Beings of the Otherworldly Kind
By Nick Redfern

As you’ll know, every so often I’ll review here, at Mysterious Universe, a new book. And it’s that time again. Today, it’s Real Encounters, Different Dimensions, and Otherworldly Beings by Brad Steiger and his wife, Sherry Hansen Steiger. Neither Brad nor Sherry need introductions. But they are going to get them anyway! 

Brad has now penned somewhere close to 200 books, on all manner of paranormal topics, including UFOs, life after death, and zombies. Sherry has authored/co-authored more than 40 books, including the best-selling Miracles series. And, I’m pleased to say, that even with so many titles under their belts, the dynamic duo continue to put out quality material.

Published by Visible Ink Press, Real Encounters… is a book that, as its title suggests, exposes the reader to an amazing number of strange entities that have for so long interacted with, helped, plagued, manipulated, taught, deceived, and downright baffled the Human Race. They are the creatures of other realms of existence; those beings that suddenly pop into our reality, do their weird thing, then pop out of it again – just as suddenly.

Some of them are from the depths of space, others come from the depths of the planet and the oceans. More than a few seem to have the uncanny ability to negotiate dimensions as easily as we go from room to room in our own homes. Then there are those intelligences that appear to come from the land of the dead; that mysterious place (or places) to which some essence of  us travels once physical life is at an end.

It’s important to note – with so many different critters, creatures and “things” under the Steiger microscope – that Real Encounters is not some sterile, seen-it-all-before reference-type book. No. This is a first-class study of a large body of data and varied entities, and one which provides the reader with a wealth of thought-provoking data – and all of a notable nature.

Take, for example, the section of the book titled Contact with Space Brothers and Sisters. Yep, we’re talking about the controversial “Contactee” movement, one which really caught major attention in the 1950s, thanks to the likes of Orfeo Angelucci, George Adamski, George Van Tassel, Truman Bethurum, and George Hunt Williamson. For the most part, the UFO research community has been content to place such cases into several discernible categories: real, hoax, and fantasy. Brad and Sherry take us down a very different path, however.

They carefully and astutely note the undeniable similarities between the messages received from the Space Brothers and Sisters and those that are channeled by spirit mediums. This leads the pair to comment that perhaps “…they are all part of the same chameleon-like phenomenon that changes to reflect the belief structures of the time.” In other words, this is bloody good stuff! It challenges the accepted wisdom and theories for who or what the Space Buddies are, and pushes us down a far more satisfying and likely pathway.

One of the things that has long-fascinated me is the notion of highly advanced beings coming not from outer-space, but from inner-space. As in far below our feet. Yep, we are talking about creatures of the underworld. Such theories have been advanced, to varying degrees, by Richard Shaver, Mac Tonnies, and Wm. Michael Mott. In fact, the reason why the subject so fascinates me is because of a story that originated in my home county of Staffordshire, England – it’s a 1770-era saga revolving around an old, underground chamber and a menacing, hooded character.

Our fearless authors address the story, along with many others; all of which suggest that many of the near-magical beings that interact with us come from a place far closer to home than we might think, or they may wish us to believe. Tales of “Old Ones,” “Elder Gods,” the occult-driven beliefs of the Nazis, and ancient legends of highly advanced races inhabiting subterranean realms, abound in what is an undeniably great chapter.

Whenever people mention the word “fairy,” it inevitably conjures up pop-culture imagery of small, winged, sparkling figures; the kind most often represented in children’s books and on Christmas cards and such like. The reality behind the fantasy and the folklore is very different, however. Brad and Sherry share with us – in a chapter titled The Wee People: Guardians of the Earth Mother – that the phenomenon of the “little people” has a significant place in reality.

One gets a distinct feeling from reading this particular chapter that the veil between our reality and that of the “wee folk” is one that, on far more than a few occasions, becomes definitively blurry. That’s when magical encounters occur - some of which (maybe even all) clearly take place when the witness is plunged into a distinctly altered state of mind. Such creatures – it is made very obvious to us - are not to be trifled with. Yes, they can be friendly. On other occasions, however, they are trickster-like. Sometimes they appear to be nothing less than outright malevolent and hostile.

I was very pleased to see that one particular issue that gets good, solid coverage in Real Encounters… is the work of Trevor James Constable, the brains behind the theory that at least some UFOs are “…plasmic living organisms native to our atmosphere.” If you aren’t already aware of Constable’s work, the Steigers  will open your eyes to a whole new world – almost literally!

The domain of the afterlife gets much coverage, too, in the book. We’re talking about sinister and violent poltergeists, electronic voice phenomena, the world of the medium, shadow people, and numerous other issues that suggest there are things out there – on the other side of the veil, so to speak – with whom we can interact. When we do interact with them, however, we should take great care. In many cases, deception and manipulation are their calling cards.

Dreams that may be far more than “normal” dreams, ones in which people have reportedly traveled to worlds and realities far beyond our own, abound in the pages of the latest Steiger-Steiger book. As do shape-shifters, extraterrestrial kidnappers, and benevolent and angelic entities.

And, there is something else too: my favorite chapter of the book. It goes by the title of Meeting Strange Creatures in Dark Forests. Large, shadowy and creepy woods curiously provoke wonder, intrigue and mystery in all of us – even if we’re not overly sure why. We imagine them to be filled with mysterious creatures; those diabolical half-human monsters, winged and nightmarish beasts, and paranormal animals that lurk in the shadows of the thick trees.

Well, that’s exactly what you get in this particular chapter: a fine study of how easy it is to leave civilization behind and suddenly become plunged into a very different world; a world of the primitive, of the malevolent, and of the abominable.

This is a book that skillfully demonstrates the world we see around us does not amount to all that there is to see. There are domains and dimensions – call them what you will – that are inhabited by supernatural intelligences that we do not fully understand, and which we may never fully understand. In a strange and symbiotic fashion, however, it’s as if they need to be seen by us, just as much as we crave the answers to what they are and what they want from us. There are doors to be opened and forces and forms to be reckoned with.

Real Encounters, Different Dimensions, and Otherworldly Beings opens those doors and unleashes those forces and forms upon us – and then some!

Finally, I should add that here in Dallas, Texas the weather is usually warm to scalding. Over the last couple of weeks, however, the temperature has plunged, the skies have darkened ominously, and the wind has been powerful and howling. It was against this chilly, atmospheric backdrop that I eagerly read Real Encounters… And, for full effect, I recommend that you do likewise.

Yemeni Girl Cries Stones Instead of Tears

A 12-year-old girl has baffled doctors after crying stones instead of tears - with locals fearing she may be 'possessed'.

Saadiya Saleh, who lives in a village in Yemen, produces the small, hard stones beneath her eyelids.

They are then naturally pushed to the front of her eyes, before falling down her cheeks.

A video of the bizarre phenomenon was posted on YouTube by Yemeni television channel Azal.

Footage shows Saadiya lying on a hospital bed, surrounded by doctors and relatives - one of whom can be seen brushing a stone out of the child's eye with a cloth.

A doctor then holds up a small box full of stones that have fallen out of Saadiya's eyes in just a few hours.

Medics said they could not give an explanation for the condition - with Saadiya not suffering from any known disease.

However, locals have spoken of their fears that the young girl is possessed by magic.

'The case has triggered panic in the area where this girl lives,' a presenter can be heard saying in the video.

'Some say the girl could be gripped by a magic spell, while others say it might be the devil.

'Others fear it could be the start of a dangerous epidemic.'

Concern After No 2013 Loch Ness Monster Sightings

THE Loch Ness Monster has disappeared, with no confirmed sightings of the legendary creature being recorded in 2013.

It is the first time in almost 90 years when the monster has failed to make an appearance.

Kevin Carlyon, the High Priest of White Witches in the UK, has claimed a spell he placed on the loch to protect Nessie from “exploitation of fraudsters” explains her non-appearance.

He said: “I personally believe Nessie is a ghost of a dinosaur, who has been regularly seen on the loch.

“But the spirit of the creature has been so exploited in recent years I decided to carry out an exorcism, hence no sightings of the monster.”

The white witch has vowed to return this summer to lift the spell and “put Nessie back”.

Veteran spotter Gary Campbell, of the Official Loch Ness Monster Club, keeps a register of sightings, but said no-one had come forward in 18 months with proof they had seen the monster.

Three reports of possible encounters

There had been three reports of possible encounters, but these were immediately discounted as fakes or mistakes.

Bookmaker William Hill, which failed to pay out a £1000 prize for the best Nessie sighting for 2013, said the three entries to its contest could be explained – as images of a wave, a duck and a picture not even taken on Loch Ness.

Mr Campbell said it was the first time since 1925 that there had been no confirmed reports of the monster.

He said: “It’s very upsetting news and we don’t know where she’s gone.

“The number of sightings has been reducing since the turn of the century but this is the first time in almost 90 years that Nessie wasn’t seen at all.

“Pretty much everyone now carries a camera with them in their smart phone - this allows then to snap what they’re seeing and means that we don’t just have to rely on eyewitness evidence. As last year has shown, all the pictures and videos taken can prove to the expert eye that it wasn’t Nessie that was being filmed.

William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams said:”Although we had three entries, one was a wave, one a duck and the other wasn’t from Loch Ness - even the one other sighting for the year that wasn’t entered was a video of a wave.

Mr Adams added: “We’ve now more than doubled the odds of finding proof that Nessie exists to 250-1 and we’ve done a ‘monster rollover’ on the prize meaning that this year’s winner could be taking away £2000.”

Mr Campbell, a chartered accountant based in Inverness, has been logging Nessie sightings for 17 years after seeing something in the loch himself.

As Nessie’s registrar of sightings, he has put together a list of sightings going back 1,500 years.

Irish missionary St Columba is said to have encountered a beast in the River Ness in 565AD.

Mr Campbell said: “So far 1,036 reported sightings have been recorded and there were some in 2012.

“It could be a blip. I’m convinced that Nessie has just taken some time out and will be back with a vengeance this year.”

Mr Campbell has appealed to people to keep an eye out for the monster this year.

2013 was 80th anniversary of first modern-day sighting

Ironically 2013 was the 80th anniversary of the first “modern-day” sighting of Nessie.

The local paper, the Inverness Courier, reported on 2 May, 1933, a Mr and Mrs MacKay, of Drumnadrochit, on the shores of the loch, saw something strange in the waters near Abriachan.

The story became a global sensation and the term, Loch Ness Monster, was coined.

The most famous and controversial hoax was the “surgeon’s photo” taken by Robert Wilson in 1934.

Published in the Daily Mail, it appeared to be a head and neck rising from the water and became one of the most famous images of Nessie.

At the time, Mr Wilson stated that he had only photographed “an object moving in Loch Ness”, but 60 years later he admitted it had been faked.

The best image to date which has not been explained was taken by Richard White, of Muir of Ord, in 1997. And in 2000, Bobbie Pollock of Glasgow is acclaimed to have the best filmed footage, with nobody being able to identify what is swimming around Invermoriston Bay for 18 minutes.

White Witch Kevin Carlyon said: “I will return this summer to lift my spell, and hopefully sightings of Nessie’s spirit will return.”

Mr Campbell, meanwhile, hopes for a better 2014.

He said: “Given the number of unexplained sightings in the past, there is definitely something in the loch.

“Unfortunately, the only way of proving it is to have a body, and no one wants a monster washed up on the beach.”

The controversy around the existence of Nessie peaked in the 1960s when a Loch Ness Investigation Bureau was set up.

In addition to still and movie cameras positioned around the loch, the bureau had a team of mobile camera crews, sonar and airbourne searches.

It closed in 1972 due to a lack of funds.

Last year, Loch Ness Monster was placed ahead of the Himalaya’s Yeti in a list of “top 18 mysteries” for travellers to solve in 2014.

Wanderlust Magazine put Nessie at number three and the Yeti at 12.

Actor Charlie Sheen also recently spoke about his surprise search for the Loch Ness Monster - revealing that he hunted Nessie with a bottle of whisky.

He admitted he wants to return with American TV host Jay Leno to resume his monster hunt.
