America's Strange and Supernatural History

Find out what the "Powers That Be" Don't want you to know regarding the truly hidden - occult - history of the United States.

No one would likely dispute the fact that times are stranger in America than ever before, and indications are that things are getting weirder with each passing day. But a look at our hidden – SECRET – history alerts us to the startling fact that our country has been steeped in “high strangeness” since its founding fathers signed the Declaration of Independence and, provocatively, even before.

It is nevertheless apparent that our proud nation owes a great “debt of ingratitude” to the mysterious, the macabre, the downright bizarre and the unseen realm of the occult. Did the ancient Lemurians, a Pacific Ocean race similar to the fabled Atlanteans to the east, erect the mysterious walls found in the eastern part of the San Francisco Bay area? Writer Olav Phillips explores the enigma first hand.

Sean Casteel provides an overview of historical incidents of cannibalism, stories that go back as far as “The Starving Time” of the Jamestown colony in 1609, and Wm. Michael Mott offers up some of the UFO and creature sightings he has collected from the state of Mississippi.

Publisher/writer Timothy Green Beckley and his friend Circe returned to Sleepy Hollow, New York – of “Headless Horseman” fame – and discovered that paranormal activity is still rampant there, while author Tim Swartz would like suitable explanations for all the supernatural mysteries of his native Indiana.

In a Bonus Section: “The Spiritual Destiny of America” - The future of America as seen through the eyes of prophecy and the occult is revealed. You can feel the chills already, eh? Read “America’s Strange and Supernatural History” and get ready to kick those chills up a notch or two.

Saucers, Snitches and Secret Space Programs
By Christopher Loring Knowles

You can tell the Cold War is back for real when the US starts funneling money into exotic space weaponry. Not to mention the fact that Russian warplanes are buzzing Europe and China is openly discussing its plans to drive the US out of Asia, claiming the Pacific Ocean as its Mare Nostrum.

What we know about the space budget so far:

    Last year, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced a new “offset strategy” to develop breakthrough solutions to secure American technological dominance into the next century. This year, the budget request increases money for research and development by about $500 million, bringing it to $13.5 billion.

    It will be a great year for futuristic technologies that sound like they come from a comic book. But the budget also shows that every new invention has consequences and can raise new problems even as it solves others.

    Obama requested a slight increase in spending for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, which would bring their budget to $3 billion to work on next generation technology related to everything from synthetic biology to space planes. Money for electronic and laser weapon systems jumped to $67 million from a bit over $55 million last year.

So in other words, Star Wars. Democrats shat themselves silly when Reagan proposed it in the 80s but are silent as church mice when Obama shovels millions into the program today. Which shows what a farce our political system is. And of course, drones are big, big business as well. Tell me this doesn't smack of Skynet:

    The document lays out a wish list of capabilities for the drones of tomorrow. They include the ability to process vast amounts of sensed data rather than just transmit it, stay over a target for days and communicate with a wider variety of other systems. The missions also expand from just ISR and close ground support to air combat (presumably drone on drone) and even “non-lethal crowd control.”

    The request also asks for 29 new Reaper drones, which are in demand to fight terrorism, a larger buy than last year. 

DARPA's not the only darling when it comes to government largesse. The Military wants in on the Star Wars Gravy Train and its getting its wish:

    The military has its eyes turned again to space. The budget requests $7 billion for Defense Department space programs. Expenditures for Navy satellite communications systems rose from $11 million to nearly $21 million. Spying from space also became more expensive. The request for space-based reconnaissance jumped from $78 million to $100 million this year. Architecture and support for space electronic warfare rose from $18 million to nearly $30 million. The Air Force space situation awareness program rose from $9 million to $32 million (in the form of two satellites) and the nation’s $200 million dollar “space fence” a system to track bits of space debris and objects orbiting the Earth, received more money, bringing the total cost for that program to $243 million.

243 Million for the space janitor program? Forgive me if I doubt that the "space fence" was created simply to clean up orbital garbage. Not at that price tag.

The Secret Space Program has its hat out too:

    But the military has plenty of secret spending as well. Spending on classified Air Force programs increased from $14 billion to $15 billion this year.

And the gov't is already parceling out the Moon to the highest bidder. In this case the highest bidder is none other than Robert Bigelow.

    According to documents obtained by Reuters, U.S. companies can stake claims to lunar territory through an existing licensing process for space launches

    The Federal Aviation Administration, in a previously undisclosed late-December letter to Bigelow Aerospace, said the agency intends to “leverage the FAA’s existing launch licensing authority to encourage private sector investments in space systems by ensuring that commercial activities can be conducted on a non-interference basis.”

    In other words, experts said, Bigelow could set up one of its proposed inflatable habitats on the moon, and expect to have exclusive rights to that territory - as well as related areas that might be tapped for mining, exploration and other activities.

       “We didn’t give (Bigelow Aerospace) a license to land on the moon. We’re talking about a payload review that would potentially be part of a future launch license request. But it served a purpose of documenting a serious proposal for a U.S. company to engage in this activity that has high-level policy implications,” said the FAA letter’s author, George Nield, associate administrator for the FAA’s Office of Commercial Transportation. .

    Company founder Robert Bigelow said he intends to invest $300 million of his own funds, about $2.5 billion in hardware and services from Bigelow Aerospace and raise the rest from private investors.

That's a serious chunk of change. You don't spend that on an experiment. It's safe to say the plans have been drawn up and the program is underway. And you gotta love the governmentalese here: "We don't mean six, we mean a half dozen":

    The FAA’s decision “doesn’t mean that there’s ownership of the moon," Bigelow told Reuters. "It just means that somebody else isn’t licensed to land on top of you or land on top of where exploration and prospecting activities are going on, which may be quite a distance from the lunar station.”

The best part about this is that it will drive the debunkers out of their fedoras. 

CSICOP relic Robert Sheaffer detailed how Bigelow- a mogul with very deep pockets, whose inflatable space habitats are serious business in the space field- engineered the merger/takeover of MUFON and the subsequent monopoly of what was left of serious UFOlogy.

Doing so wasn't one of Bigelow's more vexing challenges- since Laurence Rockefeller's death, UFO organizations haven't had the endless channels of corporate and foundation money the major skeptic groups receive*. They didn't have much to write home about even when Rockefeller was alive.

And not a lot of players want to publicly associate themselves with the field, in no small part due to the endless squabbling and backstabbing UFOlogists are notorious for.

    Bigelow’s proposal is to generously fund the efforts of MUFON investigators to enable them to respond quickly to alleged UFO incidents. The agreement between Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies (BAASS) and MUFON sets up a “Star Team Impact Project” (SIP), with an initial funding period from five months to a year, with the option to renew for a second year. Investigations will be limited to cases where physical effects of a UFO are reported or where “living beings” are allegedly sighted or where “reality transformation” is said to occur ...Anyone who is already a MUFON investigator can apply for a position with SIP, although new or inexperienced investigators are expected to demonstrate their skills by performing investigations of routine UFO sightings before moving up to SIP.

Sheaffer ended his piece by predicting failure for NUFON (sour grapes, certainly, in his case), but from what I've been told, Bigelow continues to recruit major people in the field. He's famously secretive, but an investigation of Bigelow and Skinwalker Ranch by Jesse Ventura on Conspiracy Theory got a lot of people who are generally skeptical of topic talking. The BAASS continues to keep its findings secret but Bigelow is said to have personally confirmed the validity of the ETH on a Coast to Coast appearance in 2013.

I recommend readers pick up the second volume of Jacques Vallee's Forbidden Science, his memoirs from the heady days of Silicon Valley, when all the technology we take for granted was being conjured. Most of those cats were as woo-woo as it gets. Computer technology was part and parcel of their war against consensus reality and a determination to hack the mainframe of corporate entropy. It all came apart when a conspiracy of superannuated grammar school snitches (and much worse) declared war on unconventional thought.

The skeptics were in fact very much part of the corporate oligarchy's strategy to reassert its dominance by driving the unconventional thinkers out of the citadel. This isn't speculation on my part- this was a deliberate strategy. It's no accident that real innovation ended a long time ago, that what we have now is just endless tinkering. It's why you have 140 characters instead of a jetpack.

Because you'll often find that the people who move things along, who change things, who make something out of nothing are usually tuned into different channels. (You think it's coincidence that the new HQ of Apple- the Valley's last major hardware pioneer- looks like a flying saucer?)

The question becomes are they receiving signals from different transmitters?

Orfeo Angelucci’s Secrets of the Flying Saucers
By Sean Casteel

After covering UFOs, alien abduction and many other paranormal subjects for over 25 years, I thought I’d seen it all. But once again, publisher, editor, writer and talk show host Timothy Green Beckley has shown me just how wrong that assumption can be. Tim recently sent me a book that contains two full-length tomes by the late contactee Orfeo Angelucci combined in one volume. Though the books were originally published in the 1950s, they contain so much that is relevant and precious about UFO contact and the mortals who come under their purview for reasons they themselves do not comprehend.

In the case of Orfeo Angelucci, I would hazard a guess that he was chosen because of his sincere, guileless innocence. Orfeo was 39 years old when he had his first consciously-recalled alien encounter, but there is an undeniable childlike quality that comes across in his writing that makes it difficult to imagine he was seeking fame or attention or money. He honestly believed that the Space Brothers – who had walked into his life from out of the blue – had charged him with the mission of making their presence and good intentions for mankind known.

Orfeo’s first book was called “The Secret of the Saucers” and came out in 1955. He begins by telling the story of his childhood, which he spent a great deal of in bed due to a poorly diagnosed aliment the doctors called “constitutional inadequacy.” The symptoms included great physical weakness, lassitude, lack of appetite and malnutrition. He tired easily and the slightest physical effort left him weak and exhausted. He also suffered from migraine headaches and it seemed at times that his every nerve and muscle ached with excruciating pain.

When Orfeo was in the ninth grade, his doctors advised that he leave school and continue his studies at home. Orfeo liked the arrangement because it allowed him to do all the reading in the various sciences that he wished. After a year of plenty of rest and a weight-building diet, the doctors said he could return to school. But since his family had suffered some financial reverses in the meantime, it was decided that he should instead go to work for his uncle’s flooring and stucco company. Which again left him with the freedom to voraciously read books on science.

In 1936, Orfeo met his future bride, Mabel Borgianini, an Italian girl who he says was a direct descendant of the famous Italian Borgias. Her happy, cheerful disposition helped keep Orfeo from brooding over his ill health. A year after their marriage, they had their first son, Raymond. But a short while later, Orfeo had a complete physical breakdown that left him bedridden in a hospital for 18 months. His body and mind were so tortured that he longed for the release of physical death. When he recovered, against all odds, he returned to work and began classes in night school, determined to pursue his interest in the sciences.

Orfeo had had a lifelong phobia about thunderstorms, which had caused him miserable physical and psychological symptoms since he was a child. Because his beloved native New Jersey was often subject to violent thunderstorms, he was glad when Mabel began to talk of moving to the West Coast, where thunderstorms rarely happened. In November 1947, Orfeo, Mabel, Richard and their second son, Raymond, set out by car for Los Angeles. After spending some pleasant, “touristy” time exploring the region, the Angeluccis decided to make their home there.

This period, 1947 and afterwards, was when flying saucers first began to make headlines worldwide. Orfeo was completely disinterested in the phenomenon and figured they were only a new type of aircraft being secretly developed and that the information would come out in due time. Orfeo found work at the Lockheed Aircraft plant in Burbank in their metal fabrication department and, later, their plastics division, working the swing shift.

In “The Secret of the Saucers,” Orfeo recalls the exact date – Friday, May 23, 1952 – when his journey of discovery and revelation began. He was at his job at Lockheed when, around 11 P.M., he felt an odd pricking sensation running through his hands and arms and up to the back of his neck along with a slight heart palpitation and a sense of his nerves being on edge. These were the familiar symptoms that always came before a bad electrical storm. He expected to see heavy threatening clouds in the sky, but the Southern California night was exceptionally clear and the stars were bright. He was puzzled but continued working. When the quitting whistle sounded at 12:30 A.M., he was exhausted almost beyond his capacity to endure.

As he drove home, he felt increasingly nervous and tense and said he sensed a force of some kind around him. He wondered if his old illness was returning and whether he might again be confined to bed with excruciating pain. He noticed that his eyesight was glazing over and the sounds of the traffic around him were strangely muffled and far away now. The night seemed to be growing brighter, as though enveloped in a soft golden haze.

Next, he saw a red, faintly glowing oval-shaped object that began to increase in brilliance. The object stayed in view as he continued to drive home until it hovered over a deserted stretch of road called Forest Lawn Drive. As the pain of his symptoms increased, the object veered sharply to the right. It was then that it occurred to Orfeo that he might be seeing a flying saucer, the sort of thing he had read about for years. Two smaller objects, green in color, came out of the red object and hovered only a few feet away. They were three feet in diameter and hung there silently while their green light fluctuated rhythmically.

Then, from what seemed to be an area between the two eerie balls of green fire, came a masculine voice speaking perfect English. Orfeo writes that at that point he was in a state of shock and therefore cannot report the conversation verbatim. He does recall, however, that the first words spoken to him were, “Don’t be afraid, Orfeo. We are friends!” Then the voice asked him to exit his car, which he did, in spite of feeling so weak and shaky that he could barely stand.

The kindly voice told Orfeo that the green objects were “instruments of transmission and reception” unlike anything developed on Earth and that they were being used for Orfeo to communicate with “friends from another world.” Orfeo dimly remembered thinking that he should say something but was stunned into utter silence, wondering if he had completely lost his mind.

The voice began to speak to Orfeo about things no stranger could know, at which point all traces of fear left Orfeo. But he suddenly felt thirsty. The voice, apparently reading his mind, directed Orfeo to drink from a goblet that suddenly appeared on his car’s fender. Drinking the delicious beverage caused his various discomforts to vanish completely and gave him a sensation of strength and well-being. He thanked the voice and the goblet disappeared.

Then, in the area between the two green fireballs, a luminous, three-dimensional television screen began to gradually take form. Images of the heads and shoulders of two persons appeared on the screen, one male and one female. The two figures struck Orfeo as “being the ultimate of perfection. There was an impressive nobility about them” and they “emanated a seeming radiance that filled me with wonder.” Orfeo also had the confusing feeling that the two figures were familiar, as though previous encounters with them were stored in his memory.

They seemed able to read his mind at its deepest levels, and Orfeo felt he stood before them in a “kind of spiritual nakedness.” There seemed to be a telepathic exchange of information happening, with thoughts and understandings that would have taken hours of normal conversation passing between Orfeo and the people on the screen in mere seconds. Then the two figures faded and the screen vanished. Orfeo was on the point of blacking out when the initial voice spoke again, saying that Orfeo was understandably confused but that he would comprehend everything that happened later on. “The road will be open, Orfeo,” the voice assured him.

The thought flashed through Orfeo’s mind, “Why have they contacted me – a humble aircraft worker – a nobody?”

The voice explained that their selection process was not conducted with the limited senses of man but was based on their superior understanding of what an individual Earthling really is. They were also aware of how flying saucers were a source of humor to most people, as it was meant to be. Earth was supposed to become accustomed gradually to the idea of space visitors, and it was good that they be taken lightly at first for the sake of human civilization’s stability.

Although the Space Brothers would help mankind as best they could, there were cosmic laws that prohibited interfering too directly in the evolution of a given planet. Earth must work out its own destiny, but the danger is greater than people realized. The voice alluded to an evil enemy that was preparing secretly and in vast numbers to do what damage it could to the people of Earth. This is interesting because it involves a more complicated moral scenario than mere alien saviors preaching an impossible kind of “sweetness and light.” Instead, they freely acknowledge that there are many battles to be fought and that mankind is up against subtle, insidious influences intended to lead him on the path to his own destruction.

“As I listened to that kind, gentle voice,” Orfeo writes, “I began to feel a warm, glowing wave of love enfold me; so powerful that it seemed as a tangible soft, golden light. For a wonderful moment I felt infinitely greater, finer and stronger than I knew myself to be. It was as though momentarily I had transcended mortality and was somehow related to these superior beings.”

The voice told Orfeo that he would be contacted again and said a warm goodnight, calling Orfeo “friend.”

“Bewilderment, incredulity, shock and stark fear flooded over me,” Orfeo writes. “I had the sudden conviction that I had lost my mind and gone raving mad. What I had witnessed, I felt, just couldn’t have happened.”

He got in his car and drove home, desperate to return to “the world of sane reality.” Mabel asked why he was so late and looked so terrified. He said he would tell her tomorrow, which he spent in bed, still feeling the aftereffects of what he’d experienced. When he told Mabel the incredible story the following day, she believed him, saying he had always been truthful with her.

Two months later, in July 1952, Orfeo had an experience onboard a UFO in which he was able to view the Earth from outer space. Again, an alien voice spoke to Orfeo as the awestruck mortal sat in a form-fitting chair on the craft: “Orfeo, you are looking upon Earth – your home! From here, over a thousand miles away in space, it appears as the most beautiful planet in the heavens and a haven of peace and tranquility. But you and your Earthly brothers know the true conditions there.”

As he listened to the tender, gentle intonations of the wonderful voice, Orfeo began to be overwhelmed by sadness and wept, something he had not done since childhood. The tears worked to cleanse and purify him and to free him from the unfeeling shell of “The Reasoner” he had come to pride himself on being as an adult.

The voice seemed to join in Orfeo’s weeping and said, “For all of its apparent beauty, Earth is a purgatorial world among the planets evolving intelligent life. Hate, selfishness and cruelty rise from many parts of it like a dark mist.”

Again, the Space Brothers acknowledge their opposition to a dark and evil force working in our world, something similar to the war between the Archangel Michael and Satan prophesied in the Book of Revelation. The allusion to an armed conflict between good and evil over the destiny of mankind adds a degree of moral complexity to the overall mix that ups the realism factor greatly.

Orfeo is then taken further out into space and shown demonstrations of various other types of alien spacecraft while the voice continues to speak of the love for mankind that is inherent in everything the Space Brothers do. Orfeo hears beautiful music as he flies out into deep space, the music of the spheres, an expression of how vibrantly alive the stars and planets are throughout the universe. But he continues to cry in shame, as though repenting for the sins of all mankind at once.

“I wondered how those great beings could love such a one as I,” he writes, “or any of mankind.”

This echoes the Bible, Psalm 8: 3-4, “When I look at thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars which thou hast established; what is man that thou art mindful of him, and the son of man that thou dost care for him?” This is a recurring pattern among many contactees of Orfeo’s period and after him as well. Their experiences relate to what is found in ancient scriptures, including the Bible, seamlessly and without apparent conscious effort on the contactee’s part. One is therefore led to conclude that the Space Brothers of our present era are the same entities we call Ancient Astronauts when they appear in the context of our earliest religious writings. The fact that they also seem to be at war with some form of devil – with mankind as the battlefield – also speaks to their timeless presence among us. They are more ancient than we know what ancient means.

Orfeo then undergoes a baptism not in water but in light. He sees his entire life flash before his eyes in a panoramic vision and fears that he is dying. He regains something more like normal consciousness and is returned home. He had felt a burning sensation below his heart during his profound “initiation,” and as he undressed for bed he saw a circular burn about the size of a quarter in that same place. He felt it was a sign from the Space Brothers intended to help him remember that the experience had been physically real as he faced the cold light of the coming days.

Orfeo’s next adventure with the Space Brothers was a face-to-face meeting with a being he called Neptune. It was August 2, 1952, and Orfeo was taking a late evening stroll near the Hyperion Avenue Freeway Bridge, where he had earlier seen the ship that took him out into space. Neptune appeared from out of the darkness and called out, “Greetings, Orfeo!” The Space Brother had the same noble, handsome countenance as the figures Orfeo had seen on the mysterious viewing screen during his first encounter.

After some introductory chitchat, Neptune began to deliver the same woeful message about Earth and its dark future.

“I may tell you,” Neptune said, “that, to the entities of certain other worlds, Earth is regarded as ‘the accursed planet,’ and ‘the home of reprobate, fallen ones.’ Others call your Earth ‘the home of sorrows.’ For Earth’s evolution is evolution through pain, sorrow, sin, suffering and the illusion of physical death.”

One is reminded that one of the most basic tenets of the Buddha is that, “All life is sorrowful,” but Neptune also prophesies that mankind will survive the inevitable warfare of Armageddon and rejoice in the coming of the New Age in which people will forget their bitter hurts and build constructively together upon the solid foundation of the Brotherhood of Man. He tells Orfeo not to doubt the reality of what he is experiencing and that Orfeo’s account of his encounters will give greater faith and inner conviction to only a few – but it is an important few.

“The road is open now,” Neptune said. “Walk it as you will.”

Orfeo had been writing about his experiences and hoped to find a publisher willing to believe his story enough to print his manuscript and get it out before the public. When there were no takers, he began to consider the idea of self-publishing his narrative in newspaper form and calling it “The Twentieth Century Times,” in spite of Mabel’s objections.

Orfeo was already suffering a great deal of “ribbing” about his interest in UFOs from his coworkers, and seeking further public attention would make life even more difficult for his sons, whose schoolmates had learned of his flying saucer fascination. But the Space Brothers had given him such an intense sense of mission about spreading the word about them that he pressed on heedlessly in his efforts to get his story out. He was also giving weekly lectures about the Space Brothers to increasingly larger crowds at a local social club and was pleased to find a sympathetic, believing group of kindred spirits.

With the help of Max Miller, the president of Flying Saucers International, an organization devoted to the study of UFOs, Orfeo put together the Flying Saucer Convention at the Hollywood Hotel. The featured speakers included Frank Scully, George Van Tassel and George Adamski, some of the biggest names in the field at the time. The crowds overflowed out onto Hollywood Boulevard to hear the message, but there were also the obligatory negative voices being heard as well. A woman who had been continually buttonholing Orfeo to quote the scriptures and in general revile his efforts finally succeeded in getting Orfeo to display some real anger, an unusual emotion for him to feel.

“When at last I literally blew my top,” Orfeo writes, “she joyfully picked up her data and departed, shouting that my temper proved I was an agent of the devil.”

Orfeo also reports on attending a convention of science fiction writers at the Hotel Commodore in Los Angeles where he was surprised to learn that UFOs were now a taboo subject for this particular kind of literati. Orfeo says this was most likely due to the fact that the Space Brothers are beautiful, heavenly entities but it was tales of horror and fear that sold books.

“But the joke is on them,”Orfeo writes, “for reality has slipped quietly past them and established new frontiers of its own. The science-fictioneers were induced by subtle forces to ignore flying saucers, as were many other materialistic sources of information. During the welcome lull, the actual flying saucer phenomenon and the extraterrestrials were left to the inexperienced but honest handling of rank amateurs. At first these men were inept and inarticulate, but they are finding their voices and their numbers are rapidly increasing. The Space Brothers had actually only cleared the atmosphere for them. Had the professional spinners of horror fiction stuck to the theme of flying saucers, the true contacts should never have been able to perform their missions.”

Whitley Strieber, the abductee whose bestseller “Communion” put the alien abduction phenomenon in the spotlight for a new and sizable audience in the 1980s, once made a similar remark. He said the Visitors had ultimately bypassed the government and the media and gone straight to the people who interested them, what we might call a “populist” or grassroots effort independent of the sanctions of officialdom.

There is much more to the story Orfeo Angelucci tells in “The Secret of the Saucers,” including a brief but beautiful conversation with the living Jesus Christ and a short visit to the paradise that is the Space Brothers’ home world. Orfeo died in 1993 at the age of 81 and presumably went to dwell there with them as he awaits the New Age on Earth that his life and work were part of creating.

'Earthquake Lights' Phenomena Findings Prove Legends Are True
By Dan Wighton    

Scientists and geologists have been researching earthquakes for centuries – but until recently, we knew very little about another associated phenomenon – rare and mysterious ‘Earthquake Lights’. And no, they’re not UFOs.

Earthquake lights have been noticed and catalogued for centuries, however those who witness the lights tended to think they were associated with something a little more supernatural – think UFOs or spooky sporty.

The lights are usually a blue and white flash and glow before and during earthquakes – so it is understandable that plenty of folks thought there was something more spooky, spiritual and scary going on.

But as science has a tendency to do, it has debunked many of these spiritual supernatural superstitions, in favour of a relatively simple explanation – lightning.

Well, kinda lightning – but not as we know it.

Dumbing it down a tad, the cause of earthquake lights has suggested as something like ‘ground lightning’. Regular lightning – the one that lives in the sky – is made by a build-up of electricity in clouds. It follows then that ground lightning is caused by the build-up of electricity in the ground.

But earthquakes are caused by tectonic plates, right, so what does electricity in the ground have to do with earthquakes?

That part of the equation is still relatively uncertain. Researchers know that there is a build-up of some kind of electric substance before earthquakes, but they don’t know exactly how or why.

They have even reproduced the effect in controlled testing – using flour and Tupperware containers creating electricity along fault-lines – but there remains a number of competing theories as to the source of the effect.

One principal theory advanced by NASA and San Jose University’s joint investigative team is that certain rocks – not all rocks – are stressed by nature, activating electric charges in the earth.

Where these particular rocks are accompanied by vertical faults in the ground, you have your formula for earthquake lights.

This also explains why not all earthquakes are preceded by lightning – it depends on the rocks. For you rock nerds out there, basalts and gabbros are the likely culprits, due to cracks in their crystals.

Scientists suggest that the conditions for earthquake lightning exist in only 0.5 per cent of occasions – which is why it is rare and unpredictable.

Studies are continuing into the phenomena, particular around how manipulating the effect could lead to new ways in generating energy and how to make earthquake predictions.

But until then, running around with a kite and a fork after you hear a rumble in an earthquake danger zone is a poor decision to make.

Does The Past, Present and Future co-exist in the Universe?

The old adage that 'time is like a river', suggesting that we move through it like a ship sailing on water, may be wrong.

A new theory claims that time does not move forward, but rather, everything in time is ever-present.

According to the theory, if we were to ‘look down’ upon the universe, we would see time spread out in all directions, just as we see space at the moment.

The intriguing theory was put forward by Dr Bradford Skow, an associated professor of philosophy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

In his new book, Objective Becoming, he examines some of the theories that have been postulated to explain time.

‘When you ask people, “Tell me about the passage of time,” they usually make a metaphor,’ he said.

‘They say time flows like a river, or we move through time like a ship sailing through the sea.’

Another theory states that the present is a ‘spotlight’ that moves from the past to the future, with us being located in the spotlight as it moves forward.

Dr Skow, however, said he ‘wouldn’t want to believe in that unless I saw good arguments for it.’

Rather, he favours a theory known as the ‘block universe’, which states that the past, present and future already exist. Dr Skow said that he does not think events sail past us and vanish forever - instead, they exist in different parts of space-time.

‘The block universe theory says you’re spread out in time, something like the way you’re spread out in space,' Dr Skow said.

‘We’re not located at a single time.’

Instead he says we are in a 'temporarily scattered' condition.  He asserts that our passage through space-time is not like a spotlight - and the experiences you had yesterday, last week, or even years ago are all real.

But he says time travel between the different times is not possible, as we are now in a different part of space-time. If we were to look down upon the universe, we would see time spread out, said Dr Skow. But he adds the present is not a 'spotlight' in time - but rather we are in a 'temporally scattered' condition.

His theory follows another postulated by scientists back in December.

They proposed that at the moment of the Big Bang, a 'mirror universe' to our own was created that moves in the opposite direction through time - and intelligent beings in each one would perceive the other to be moving backwards through time.

The radical theory was proposed by Dr Julian Barbour of College Farm in the UK, Dr Tim Koslowski of the University of New Brunswick in Canada and Dr Flavio Mercati of the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, also in Canada.

Their research attempts to answer questions that remain about the ‘arrow of time’ - which is the concept that time is ‘symmetric’ and everything moves forwards.

They say that at the time of the Big Bang not one but two universes formed – both moving equally in each direction through time, but opposite to each other.

This universe would not be exactly the same as ours, though; it would have evolved and changed in its own way, completely separate to our own.

However, it would be subject to the same laws of physics, so it would likely have planets, stars and galaxies just like in our version of the cosmos.

And Dr Barbour told MailOnline the theory could open up a new way to think about the Big Bang.

‘At the moment when people talk about the Big Bang, they more or less throw their hands up in despair and say they can’t say what happened,' he said.

‘Now our work is beginning to suggest we can actually say more than people thought.’

Which theory of time proves to be correct, though - Dr Skow's block universe, the mirror universe or perhaps another - remains to be seen.


In 1927 British astronomer Arthur Eddington first devised the ‘one-way direction’ or ‘asymmetry' of time. He said that by studying the organisation of matter, it was possible to make a 4D map of the universe.

The so-called ‘arrow of time’ supposedly points to a move spread out and ‘random’ future, toward which everything is moving. This is also known as entropy, which tends to increase with time.

Entropy, a consequence of the Second Law of Thermodynamics, will increase as energy dissipates and matter and energy disperse.
This means that entropy will always increase in the universe.

Some say this may lead to a ‘heat death’ future where everything is spread so thinly that nothing can exist any more – a scenario famously postulated in Isaac Asimov’s short story The Last Question.

However, owing to the law of gravity, some think such a future is not a possibility. And Dr Skow thinks the 'arrow of time' theory itself is not necessarily correct.

Mummified Monk is ‘Not Dead’ in Meditative State

A mummified monk found in the lotus position in Mongolia is 'not dead' and is instead one stage away from becoming a real-life Buddha, it has been claimed.

Forensic examinations are under way on the amazing remains, which are believed to be around 200 years old, having been preserved in animal skin. But one expert has insisted the human relic is actually in 'very deep meditation' and in a rare and very special spiritual state known as 'tukdam'.

Over the last 50 years there are said to have been 40 such cases in India involving meditating Tibetan monks.

Dr Barry Kerzin, a famous Buddhist monk and a physician to the Dalai Lama, said: 'I had the privilege to take care of some meditators who were in a tukdam state.

'If the person is able to remain in this state for more than three weeks - which rarely happens - his body gradually shrinks, and in the end all that remains from the person is his hair, nails, and clothes. Usually in this case, people who live next to the monk see a rainbow that glows in the sky for several days. This means that he has found a 'rainbow body'. This is the highest state close to the state of Buddha'.

He added: 'If the meditator can continue to stay in this meditative state, he can become a Buddha. Reaching such a high spiritual level the meditator will also help others, and all the people around will feel a deep sense of joy'.

Initial speculation is that the mummy could be a teacher of Lama Dashi-Dorzho Itigilov.

Born in 1852, Dashi-Dorzho Itigilov was a Buryat Buddhist Lama of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, best known for the lifelike state of his body.

Ganhugiyn Purevbata, who is the founder and professor of the Mongolian Institute of Buddhist Art at Ulaanbaatar Buddhist University, said: 'Lama is sitting in the lotus position vajra, the left hand is opened, and the right hand symbolizes of the preaching Sutra.

'This is a sign that the Lama is not dead, but is in a very deep meditation according to the ancient tradition of Buddhist lamas'.

The mummified remains, which were covered in cattle skin, were found on January 27 in the Songinokhairkhan province of Mongolia.

However, there is more to the story and now police have revealed that the monk had been stolen from another part of the country and was about to be sold off.

An unnamed official said that it was taken from a cave in the Kobdsk region by a man who then hid it in his own home in Ulaanbaatar.

He had then been planning to sell it on the black market at a 'very high price', with local media claiming he wanted to take it over the Mongolian border. Police uncovered the plot and quickly arrested a 45-year-old, named only as Enhtor.

According to Article 18 of the Criminal Code of Mongolia smuggling items of cultural heritage are punishable with either a fine of up to 3million roubles ($43,000) or between five and 12 years in prison. The monk is now being guarded at the National Centre of Forensic Expertise at Ulaanbaatar.

The Sexy Side of the Supernatural
By Micah Hanks

Sexuality, many would argue, forms the basis of our very being, and the continuation of virtually all complex biology on our planet. Hence, is it totally outrageous to ask whether there could be sex that occurs elsewhere… if not on other planets, then perhaps in the afterlife?

The question may sound absurd, and perhaps even scoff-worthy in the eyes of one such as evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins, who would likely reject the premise outright based on its insinuation that consciousness may carry on after bodily death (granted, Dawkins has drawn quite a bit of criticism lately for controversial sex-related statements he has made as well). But putting aside our skepticism for a moment, perhaps if we suspend our disbelief regarding an afterlife and consider what role sexuality plays in the physical world, this idea could make for a more interesting exercise in thought than you might think.

Sexuality does undertake a variety of roles aside from its obvious practical purpose; even some animal species, which include dolphins, will engage in sexual relations for pure enjoyment, rather than mere procreation. Among humans, while procreation and recreation are the key reasons for engagement in sexual intercourse, sexuality also has a history of use in ritual and symbolism that ties in with the supernatural.

Among the most erudite presentations on the subject, Benjamin Walker’s Sex and the Supernatural: Sexuality in Religion and Magic  (Macdonald Unit 75, London, 1970), summarized it thusly:

    From earliest times sexual union has been sanctified in countless symbols, and the representation of the act was a profound arcanum concealing hidden truths. The Ark of the Covenant, the chest of acacia wood housed in the Holy of Holies in the Temple of Solomon, contained among other things a sacred stone which, according to certain Talmudic scholars, was a symbol of the male and female organs in union. The Eleusinian mysteries of ancient Greece included a rite known as arretophoria named from the Greek words meaning ‘carrying things not to be mentioned’, in which a basket containing a stone phallus and the ‘womb’ of the goddess Demeter was taken out in sacred procession.

    In primitive (preliterate) societies it was and still is almost universally believed that human generation is directly linked with supernatural powers. Even in those communities–and there are some, according to anthropologists–who are not aware of the connection between sexual intercourse and pregnancy, the act of copulation takes on a special significance and is regarded with sentiments of religious awe.

Looking throughout history, the fact that there is a religious sentiment underlying the sexual act is of course rife throughout virtually every culture and their practices. However, arguably the significant role that sexuality plays is often rather subconscious, and perhaps applies to a range of purportedly unexplained phenomenon in the modern era.

Ghost sex, for instance, has been popularized in modern times in film and popular documentary-style paranormal programs, with particular emphasis made on the idea of ghostly or demonic sexual assault (take for instance the decidedly disturbing 1982 film rendition of The Entity, starring actress Barbara Hershey, which is among the more sensationalized presentations on the subject). The prevalence of such accounts in modern times no doubt served as inspiration for author Brad Steiger, who devoted an entire book to purported sexual relations carried out with denizens of the spirit world in his Otherworldly Affaires: Haunted Lovers, Phantom Spouses, and Sexual Molesters from the Shadow World. Granted, not all the encounters with randy spirits discussed in the book are violent or non-consensual; in a few instances, there have been individuals who described the experiences as enjoyable.

Years ago, I was contacted personally by a woman who wished to share something that was “slightly unnerving, but a bit personal.” I suspected, based on her initial hesitation, that this might have to do with some perceived phenomenon of a sexual nature and, upon further discussion of the incidents in question, the woman confided to me that her husband had awoken on two separate occasions to find her seemingly engaged in sex acts–and apparently enjoyably so–while sleeping, and in the obvious absence of any real partner. The husband had been quite disturbed by the displays, and advised she seek help, though she herself maintained virtually no memory of anything happening.

It may be possible that such circumstances are due in part to little understood bodily processes; for instance, one often-asserted solution is that these individuals are merely suffering from sleep paralysis. However, in the case related above, it would seem counter-intuitive if known functions that render bodily paralysis while one is sleeping could nonetheless allow for an individual to thrash about as though engaged in a sex act.

Conversely, melatonin, which governs photoperiodic bodily cycles and functions, is related both to sleep and sex in humans. It would seem plausible, in theory, that melatonin production might stimulate the body in a variety of ways, based on the individual, that have relevance particularly to sexuality in relation to the dream state. Similar to the apparent connection between presumed spirit-sex and sleep cycles are reports of alien abduction, which at times bear a starkly sexual nature. Researcher Paul Deane noted in his book Sex and the Paranormal that some early abduction cases where the purported female captives weren’t merely examined by their alien captors, but described literal sexual assault while in their presence; one of several elements that has contributed to rather fantastic theories among researchers in some UFO circles, which reveal humans as intergalactic breeding stock to alien visitors.

In fairness to all branches of purported strange phenomena, it wouldn’t be fair to exclude cryptozoology, as indeed, a sexual component will often appear in relation to creatures like Bigfoot just as well, if you look deeply enough. In fact, silence on the matter encouraged researcher Loren Coleman to begin lecturing on the subject a number of years ago, in a series of presentations themed around “Sex and the Single Sasquatch,” where he hoped to demystify the taboo nature of sexuality in relation to discussion of the beast. Arguably, if understanding the presumed existence of Sasquatch means learning all its habits, sexuality and breeding should hardly qualify for exclusion.

Fundamentally, our sexuality is part of what makes us human… perhaps the single most important part, in fact. Gender roles govern who we are, and how we will act, and when considered in this way, perhaps it is of little surprise that sexuality would also arise in relation to purported supernatural or paranormal claims. Does this merely betray the human component behind all of this, or does it point to a continuation of an actual interplay that is innate to us, and perhaps evidential of something that exists beyond?
