A photographer trying to capture the Northern Lights in Canada was astonished to see a face in one of his pictures. Jonathan Tucker, 25, snapped the image in Marsh Lake in Yukon, Canada with a 30 second exposure on his camera.
It was only later that he noticed "strong facial features" such as a nose, chin and smiling mouth among the swirling green lights. The spectacular light display lasted for an hour but Mr Tucker, from Yukon, only spotted the face when looking at his photographs later in the day.
He said: "When you look at this photo you can certainly see very strong facial features like the nose, eye and chin. "The face even looks like it has hair and to me it looks like it's smiling. I was shocked. This is very rare."
Comment: oH......... Don't even know what to say... If this is an aetheric 'bleedthrough,' then I am quite worried about else will appear, people are already jittery...
It 'rained fish' in Agusan del Sur
Phil Star News, 15th January 2012
MANILA, Philippines - Small fish of still unknown species mysteriously fell from the skies over Loreto town in Agusan del Sur Friday afternoon during a heavy downpour, leaving residents and officials baffled and amused.
Blance Gobenciong, Office of Civil Defense (OCD) director in Caraga, confirmed the phenomenon but offered no explanation. National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) executive director Benito Ramos also could not provide an explanation for the strange incident.
“It came with the rain and about a kilo of these live fish is in the aquarium now,” Gobenciong said. Surprised residents went out of their houses despite the heavy rain to collect the fish that landed on rooftops and on the streets.
Comment: Wild, Fortean wild.....
Panic grips people as rumors of “people turning into stone statues” floated [India]
Two Circles, 4th January 2012
Lucknow: This is straight from Ripley’s Believe it or not. The panic gripped denizens in UP with rumors of mild tremors and ‘people turning into stone statues' floated on Tuesday night. Hundreds of people in several districts spilled on roads with fear palpable on their face.
The rumour started at around 1 am on Tuesday night. Some SMS were exchanged that sleeping people have turned into stone statues and an earthquake was expected. Soon the SMS took the shape of a rumour with constant forwarding among friends and relatives.
Comment: 2012 is going to be quite a year... I need a new 2012 hysteria image icon.
Tiago Barros Designs a Passing Cloud that Lets You Float Through the Sky
Inhabitat NYC News, 18th October 2011
Who hasn't dreamt of floating on a cloud? Whether we are looking up at the sky or gazing out of an airplane window, those giant beds of fluff are irresistible. New York designer Tiago Barros is on the same wavelength and created an incredible, cloud-like balloon that takes travelers for a floating ride around the country. While the project, called Passing Cloud, may be making all our dreams come true, it is also a treat for the environment as it may turn out to be one of the greenest forms of transportation yet. Passing Cloud is, in fact, not a cloud at all. It is a series of heavy duty balloons held together in the shape of a cloud, reminiscent of the old Zeppelins. The balloons are surrounded by a stainless steel structure covered in tensile nylon fabric. The fabric is incredibly strong and flexible, moving with the wind and capturing the biggest gusts to power movement and protect passengers from blowing away.
Comment: I think this is an incredible idea.
The butterfly people of Joplin
STL Today, 19th December 2011
JOPLIN, MO. • In the chaotic first days after the tornado, when nothing seemed real, word of the butterfly people began to spread.
The stories were shared in hospital waiting rooms and in lines for donated food. They were told by neighbors on streets so devastated there was nothing to do but stand and stare. A Red Cross counselor heard the stories as she handed out water and work gloves to residents in a hard-hit part of town. She got goose bumps. She told her pastor, who asked her to tell the congregation. She remembers how the crowd gasped.
The stories about butterfly people coursed through Joplin, passing one by one and then by the many, tales describing what children reported seeing on that Sunday night in May as the tornado bore down. The children said the butterfly people protected them.
Comment: I think these are entities that most would call 'angels'. I don't know if they are deceased humans but I do believe they are high energy beings. Due to the changes in the environment of Earth, these entities are becoming much easier to see. Hence, this article is very interesting. What's more, if you are new to this website, you may have not seen this link to an angel photo, interesting isn't it?
Man Builds Fairy Tale Home for His Family – For Only £3,000
Gaia-Health News, 21st December 2011
Simon Dale is a family man in Wales, the western part of Great Britain. His interest in self-sustainability and an ecological awareness led him to dig out and build his own home—one of the loveliest, warmest, most inviting dwellings you could ever imagine. And it cost him only £3,000, about $4,700 American dollars!
Can you imagine a more charming entrance than this?
Simon gives two reasons for building the home. The first elegant one, from his website, is: It’s fun. Living your own life, in your own way is rewarding. Following our dreams keeps our souls alive.
His second reason is a plea for sustainability, in which he states that “our supplies are dwindling and our planet is in ecological catastrophe”. You can read the full and passionate statement here. Simon is also a photographer, and as you can see throughout this article, a talented one.
Comment: Simply, wow! I lived in Norway and Norwegians would call this a hytter (pronounced hutter) but this is a fabulous one...
Mysterious "white web" found growing on nuclear waste
i09 News, 16th December 2011
Mysterious "white web" found growing on nuclear wasteThis is as fascinating as it is unsettling. Scientists at the Department of Energy's Savannah River Site — a nuclear reservation in South Carolina — have identified a strange, cob-web like "growth" (their word, not ours) on the racks of the facility's spent nuclear fuel assemblies.
According to a report filed by the Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board, "the growth, which resembles a spider web, has yet to be characterized, but may be biological in nature."
The Augusta Chronicle reported today that the "white, string-like" material was discovered amidst thousands of the spent fuel assemblies, which are submerged in deep nuclear storage pools within SRS's L Area Complex. (The image up top is of a similar nuclear storage pool at Italy's Caorso Nuclear Power Plant, which was decommissioned in 1990.)
Comment: Is this a new answer to nuclear waste being offered by the Universe?

It's raining apples! Traffic grinds to a halt as 'mini tornado' dumps a hail of fruit
Freak storm 'caused by wind vortex' lifted fruit from garden or orchard
Daily Mail, 15th December 2011
After a series of storm warnings, drivers in the evening rush hour were prepared for almost anything. Except, that is, for it to start raining apples. Scores of them battered car roofs and windscreens before landing in the road at a busy junction in Coundon, Coventry.
The deluge of fruit brought traffic to a standstill at 6.45pm on Monday. A 20-yard stretch of the B4098 was left strewn with green slush after the incident. One motorist, who was travelling with her husband, said: ‘The apples fell out of nowhere. They were small and green and hit the bonnet hard. Everyone had to stop their cars suddenly.’
Comment: Even the Daily Mail recognises this is a Fortean moment... I have written about Charles Fort who must be cited as an evolutionary front runner (Tier 2, Spiral Dynamics, maybe 1 in a 100,000 or even higher in those days), based on the fact he was trying to integrate information about 100 years ago. His first book, 'The Book of the Damned', came from painstaking work of collecting newspaper clippings and information from scientific journals, when there was no internet to help him either when he was doing his amazing work... I understand the drive to integrate information to make sense of my reality, but it's extremely lonely business. The main issue here is why there are peculiar falls of 1 type of object only. Apples grow on trees and there should be twigs and branches and other debris if a mini-tornado was the cause, that is why there is the strange suggestion of apples falling from the hold of a plane, to explain the lack of other materials in this fall... Personally, I believe these strange instances are effectively "glitches" in the matrix, the organisation of our reality momentarily fails and instances have been recorded all over the world, time and time again. I can understand this based on the theory of multi-dimensional reality that I mentioned in my book, somehow signals got crossed. I am just glad that Charles Fort did his work to help the stream of human consciousness that is evolving and where beliefs that are fragmented and distorted cannot be accepted. We may be in the minority, but those of us interested in the true meaning of reality, who can't accept the superficial, are not really alone, there is a growing collective.
Strange rain: animals that have fallen from sky
An avalanche of apples that pelted road users in Coventry is just the latest in a series of bizarre examples of things falling from the sky.

Dutch astronaut's cheesy request
PhysOrg.com, 26th November 2011
Dutch astronaut Andre Kuipers will have a special treat waiting for him in orbit when he arrives in space next month: five kilogrammes of Amsterdam's finest cheese, its maker said Saturday. The 53-year-old Kuipers is due to blast off on board a Soyuz rocket on December 21 with two other astronauts for a five-month-mission on board the International Space Station.
"Andre is a big fan of our cheese and asked us in a letter to arrange with space authorities to see if we could send up some of his favourite Old Amsterdam," the cheesemaker's spokeswoman Henriette Westland told AFP. "After numerous emails to NASA and the European Space Agency, they agreed to send up around 10 kilogrammes (22 pounds)," she added.
Comment: LOL! For some strange reason I first thought of the cartoon characters Wallace and Gromit... Whatever, I imagine that Andre Kuipers is having withdrawal symptoms...
Not Photoshopped: Beam of Light Shines on Fallen Soldier’s Miracle Dog
ABC News, 24th November 2011
Reported by ABC News’ Kimberly Launier:
It was an overcast day in Newport, N.H., when a simple “20/20? shoot turned into something that made me wonder about life after death.
I was filming soldier Justin Rollin’s parents Skip and Rhonda playing with their dog Hero, whose rescue from the Iraq War zone where Justin died was nothing short of a miracle.
Comment: What are the orbs doing in this beam of light? In fact, this seems a very strange beam of light even without the orbs...
Occupy ‘bat-signal’ creator explains how he brought it off
Raw Story, 18th November 2011
As Occupy Wall Street protesters were walking across the Brooklyn Bridge on Thursday evening, a mysterious series of images flashed across the facade of the Verizon building, located near the East River, starting with a circled “99%.”
“LOOK AROUND / YOU ARE A PART / OF A GLOBAL UPRISING / WE ARE A CRY / FROM THE HEART / OF THE WORLD / WE ARE UNSTOPPABLE / ANOTHER WORLD IS POSSIBLE … OCCUPY EARTH / WE ARE WINNING / IT IS THE BEGINNING OF THE BEGINNING / DO NOT BE AFRAID / LOVE.”
Boing Boing tracked down the signal’s creator, Mark Read, to find out what had inspired the dramatic display and how he had brought it off.
Comment: Cool! Another nice non violent way to make a point...
Meet the seven-year-old Indian girl Kura Nitya who weeps stones!
IMDB News, 16th November 2011
Kuala Lumpur, Nov 16: Doctors in India were dumbfounded when they discovered that a 7-year-old girl wept stones, and are clueless as to what may be causing the phenomenon.
According to local newspaper Tamil Nesan, Kura Nitya from a village near Hyderabad has been discharging stones from her right eye for the past 15 days.
She has been weeping about 12 to 25 stones a day.
Comment: Humans have manifested crystals, glass and even needles out of their bodies.... I think some instances have a mundane answer, but others are a major mystery or maybe even examples of glitches in the matrix...
Residents of Lucerne were shocked recently to find that explosives had been buried beneath their streets
Federal Jack, 9th November 2011
(SWISS INFO) Relics of Switzerland’s Cold War defenses are turning up in surprising places. Residents of a quiet area of Lucerne were shocked recently to find that explosives had been buried beneath their streets. They were planted there by the Swiss army because the road was judged strategically important; in the event of invasion it would have been blown up.
But local people are angry that they didn’t know what was on their doorstep. They were only informed when the army decided to dig the devices up again. “I got a letter from the defense ministry, telling us there was dynamite buried here on our street, and that they were coming to take it away, “ Rieska Dommann told swissinfo.
Dommann, who is president of the local residents’ association, was particularly angry to discover that the explosives had been buried in 1989, just as the Cold War was ending. And Schuepbach admits that the Lucerne example is not unusual. There are in fact hundreds of strategic roads, tunnels and bridges in Switzerland which conceal permanent stores of explosives. “But I can’t tell you exactly how many, and exactly where they are, because that information is classified,” said Schuepbach.
Comment: I love Lucerne, it's a really magical place... but you really have to wonder about the warped mentality of the military, think about it, this really is deranged... So.... just in case robbers want to rob your house you plant a booby trap near the front door that you have to make sure you don't trigger yourself.... madness... Apparently this is all over Switzerland too.... read the complete article... this is complete military madness...
Bizarre case of the woman who says she went from age 23 to 73 in 'a few days'
Daily Mail, 14th October 2011
* Doctors speculate she may have entirely new syndrome
These pictures may look like an attractive woman in her 20s and her grandmother. But they are said to be the same person – apparently taken just days apart.
The young Vietnamese woman at the centre of the improbable medical case, Nguyen Thi Phuong, claims the transformation may have come about because of an extreme allergy to seafood. Nguyen, 26, says she developed this puffy face and sagging skin in 2008 but was too poor to seek treatment. Earlier this month, doctors said they would examine her free of charge. Nguyen’s husband, carpenter Thanh Tuyen, insists the story is true and his love has not faded for his once-beautiful wife.
Comment: Hmmm.... At this stage, I am making a note and I will refrain from making any more comment....
Your husband will never be promoted if you wear trousers: An RAF wife reveals her VERY bizarre life in a military base
Daily Mail, 9th October 2011
It was the moment that I began to realise what I’d let myself in for. I casually remarked to a wing commander’s wife that I might wear a sharp trouser suit to an annual reception and she turned to me with a look of incredulity on her face.
‘You don’t really expect your husband to get promoted if you wear trousers, do you?’ she asked.
The faintest whiff of rebellion was clearly intolerable at RAF Lyneham, the Wiltshire base where my husband had been stationed. A new millennium was about to dawn, but to me it felt as if I had been transported back to the Fifties.
Comment: This article is of interest to me from my time in Italy as an ex-patriate when I came up against 'rank' conscious people. A good example about housing was the house that we lived in was too big for the likes of my husband's bosses wife. She was living in complete luxury, a house that was built by an extremely famous and rich owner of a drinks company (I think it was Cinzano). Anyway, our home was quite large but no where near the same category of size and luxury, but in her mind we needed to live in a hovel... She got her comeuppance when there was a merger and her husband was sacked. My ex-husband was not management and therefore too useful to get rid of... I learnt some lessons about how desperate these kind of spoilt women are too be seen with all the right people and of course I did not fit into that category until I made friends with Donatella Versarce's husband Paul (ex-male model) who offered to be the Scout master for the American Boy Scouts at the British School (yes, I know it's complicated), but Paul was useful as an ex-Eagle Scout and he helped enormously to get the show on the road... I have some stories to tell, photos, and a nice present with a signature as proof of my elevated social status... Extremely rich Italians who would not normally spit on you if you were on fire would actually say hello to me.... My last year in Italy was quite something...
First 'chatbot' conversation ends in argument
BBC News, 8th September 2011
Artificial intelligence robots have held a conversation with one another for the first time with surprising and surreal results.
Two graduate PhD students at Cornell University gave voices and 2D avatars to a pair of online "chatbots", which they named Alan and Sruthi.
Jason Yosinski and Igor Labutov explained to BBC News what happened when they left the robots to converse and why they were "stunned" at the results.
Comment: Hmmm.... I am sure most people have had relationships with people who simply can't have a conversation without it ending up in an argument....
Electricity as the universal basis for a new money system
Activist Post, 31st August 2011
A couple of weeks ago, a fresh idea for a new monetary system was quietly introduced that deserves more consideration. In fact, it's an idea so profound that it could potentially solve some of the biggest problems facing human civilization. Increasingly the masses are becoming dreadfully aware that the current predatory monetary system is the greatest threat to human freedom, world peace, and environmental harmony, and must be abolished and replaced with something new.
The pioneering proposal is to create a monetary system based on electricity. Popular alternative news radio host and former NASA scientist, Michael Rivero, motivated by his knowledge and extreme displeasure of the current banking system, proposed the "Lectro": a universal currency based on one kilowatt hour of electricity
Comment: Well, I have not been persuaded by the argument here and my initial view is this is just a crazy idea... electricity as currency.... (pun intended). Seriously, I don't know much about economics but I do know that the planet is being bombarded with highly charged sub-atomic particles that can flow like electricity, thereby affecting electronics and electrical equipment. Soon it's going to become a real problem, as there have been incidents when charged particles flowing through the air and ground, have caused some major problems (and ongoing problems like pipeline erosion), see the news archive Space Weather, Electronics & EM Chaos. Certainly, I was impressed when The Netherlands lost 3 TV/radio towers in one day and poor geomagnetic conditions must be considered as the likely cause of strange electrical fires. If we get a category 5 geomagnetic storm then national power grids are extremely vulnerable and hundreds of transformers could be burnt-out by ground currents, stopping the delivery of 'normal' electricity supply. Basically, electricity is literally falling on our heads, the problem is harnessing this energy and maybe the component of space weather that is normally invisible to our instruments but we KNOW it exists. Interestingly, a few intrepid scientists have proven with patents that they can utilise this power but the subject is generally taboo. Due to Space Weather, any vision for the future of mankind, must include safe power supply generation at a local level, but I think converting power supply into financial currency still seems really strange to me...
The Bizarre Portuguese Flintstones House Built Amidst Boulders
environmentalgraffiti, 19th August 2011
Many people believed this Portuguese cottage was a Photoshop hoax when it first appeared on the internet as it seems impossible that a house could really exist squished between two enormous boulders. It does though. A true treasure, it's one of a kind.
Located in Nas montanhas de Fafe in Portugal, it certainly has a prehistoric feel, especially to all of us who grew up watching the Flintstones cartoon. It could come right out of Wilma and Fred's world with the boulders on either side. The house is rather squished at the front with just room for a door and a tiny window above it.
Comment: I am wondering if it is hurricane and tornado proof.... The Daily Mail has better images but too much chat about the Flintstones, They're the modern Stone Age family... so is this the REAL home of the Flintstones?
Bid to Rename Homo Sapiens Is Called Unwise
Live Science, 17th August 2011
Humans received the species name, Homo sapiens, meaning "wise man," in 1758. But given our short-sighted behavior, that name needs to be changed, one writer proposes.
For about 250 years, our species has been known as Homo sapiens, a scientific name in Latin that means "wise man."
Given the havoc humans are wreaking on natural systems, putting ourselves and so many other living things in peril, we don't deserve this name, contends Julian Cribb, an Australian science writer and book author. In a letter published in the Aug. 18 issue of the journal Nature, Cribb makes a proposal.
"Changing our species name might risk infringing some of the hallowed rules of nomenclature, but it would send an important signal about our present collective behavior," he writes.
Comment: My suggestion is Homo Ridicudougalus...
Joan R. Ginther who won lottery 4 times is a Stanford University statistics PhD
Daily Mail, 9th August 2011
She was called the luckiest woman in the world. But now that luck is being called into question by some who think that winning the lottery four times is more than just a coincidental spell of good fortune.
Joan R. Ginther, 63, from Texas, won multiple million dollar payouts each time. First, she won $5.4 million, then a decade later, she won $2million, then two years later $3million and in the summer of 2010, she hit a $10million jackpot.
The odds of this has been calculated at one in eighteen septillion and luck like this could only come once every quadrillion years. Harper's reporter Nathanial Rich recently wrote an article about Ms Ginther, which calls the the validity of her 'luck' into question. First, he points out, Ms Ginther is a former math professor with a PhD from Stanford University specialising in statistics.
Comment: Well, so it's not just about luck then...
Polar bear's teeth removed from head of attack survivor
BBC News, 8th August 2011
A 16-year-old boy injured by a polar bear in Norway had some of the animal's teeth removed from his skull during emergency surgery, it has emerged.
Patrick Flinders, from Jersey, suffered a fractured skull and was flown to the UK on Sunday with fellow survivor Scott Bennell-Smith, 16, from Cornwall.
Patrick's father said he was a "hero" for trying to fight off the bear that killed Horatio Chapple, 17, on Friday.
Comment: Truly unbelievable.... Well, I don't think climate campaigners will be producing any more ridiculous polar bear videos, as there are going to be a lot less people feeling sympathetic for polar bears after this tragedy.
Briton mauled to death by polar bear
News24, 5th August 2011
Oslo - A polar bear mauled one person to death and left four other members of a British group seriously injured in an attack on Friday in the Norwegian Arctic archipelago of Svalbard, authorities said.
"One person has died and four others are injured. Their injuries are serious," Liv Asta Oedegaard, a spokesperson at the Svalbard district governor's office, said.
Comment: So, where was the Norwegian guide with the gun? Polar bears are dangerous and you do not visit the island of Svalbard without someone in your group with a gun, because despite all the climate change propaganda about polar bears, they are not cuddly at all and will kill and eat you given half a chance.

Freaky 'Roman God Cloud' Caught on Tape!
Gather News, 5th August 2011
A man from Canada filmed a freaky cloud formation, dubbed the "Roman God Cloud" during a storm whipping up in his backyard. Naturally, there are plenty of people rushing to claim it's some sort of portentous sign from the Heavens. Denoting just what that may be, is, as usual, pretty vague.
But it doesn't detract from the awesome spectacle which forms right in front of his very eyes. And, luckily, his handy video camera.
Comment: Sorry, I will refrain from speculating about this. The camerarman manages to refrain from swearing but he does say "Holy Freak!"
Swedish man caught trying to split atoms at home
Yahoo News, 3rd August 2011
STOCKHOLM (AP) — A Swedish man who was arrested after trying to split atoms in his kitchen said Wednesday he was only doing it as a hobby.
Richard Handl told The Associated Press that he had the radioactive elements radium, americium and uranium in his apartment in southern Sweden when police showed up and arrested him on charges of unauthorized possession of nuclear material.
The 31-year-old Handl said he had tried for months to set up a nuclear reactor at home and kept a blog about his experiments, describing how he created a small meltdown on his stove.
Only later did he realize it might not be legal and sent a question to Sweden's Radiation Authority, which answered by sending the police.
Comment: Is this a good example of extreme compartmentalised thinking? Only thinking about danger well after already completing some of his 'experiments'?
IQ level tied to choice of internet browser
PhysOrg.com, 1st August 2011
In a study that is likely to incite controversy, AptiQuant, a Vancouver, British Columbia based Psychometric Consulting company has released a report that it says shows users of Microsoft Internet Explorer have lower Intelligence Quotient’s (IQs) than do users of other internet browsers. The company is basing its claims on scores online users received when taking the online Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (IV) test.
The test results were collected from over 100,000 English speaking people from New Zealand, Australia, the UK, Canada and the United States, over a span of four weeks and the score results were compared with the browser used to reach the site offering the test, which were offered free to random users.
Comment: Hmmm... I simply can't stand Internet Explorer it drives me nuts in comparison to Firefox, but the FireFox browser seems to be getting worse and worse for stability, but nothing would make me want to adopt IE.
The wheels on the bus...
Orange News, 26th July 2011
Terrified passengers had a right bus strop when their oblivious driver motored on - after the wheels had fallen off his coach. Driver Shi Shao, 48, told police in Shaoyang, Hunan province, southern China, that he thought he'd hit a pothole and was returning to his depot to have the suspension checked.
But his horrified passengers begged him to stop when they saw the bus's rear axle behind them in the road and could feel the floor of the vehicle turning red hot as it scraped along the road.
Comment: This reminds me of the wheels falling off the 2012 bandwagon when people find out the truth that modern Mayan Elders were trying to explain the arrival of Space Weather.... 2012 was NEVER about a 1 day jamboree to celebrate the end of the Mayan Long Count Calendar, rather marking a transition into a new era that could either destroy or dramatically transform our world.
Storm spawns mysterious fish in driveways [Illinois, US]
Daily Herald, 14th July 2011
The wackiest stories to come out of Monday's storm revolve around the mystery of how fish ended up on suburban driveways.
When a Stevenson High School senior on Monday sent us photos of a couple of fish he found on his driveway in Buffalo Grove after the storm, I couldn't stop myself from speculating in print about “raining fish.” However, I accepted a meteorologist's suggestion that the fish could have been dropped by birds caught in the storm as a perfectly plausible explanation. [...]
“It takes a considerable amount of lift to lift things out of the water,” says Pat Slattery, the National Weather Service spokesman for Illinois and 13 other states in the central part of our nation. Hail rides the updraft, getting bigger and bigger before it falls to earth, but no one ever talks about hail the size of a bucket of five-inch-long fish.
Comment: Huh... It's raining fish again.... How Fortean.
Front Cover of “Ted Connor's” Confiscated Greek Book
Earthfiles.com, 9th July 2011
July 9, 2011 Albuquerque, New Mexico - I asked “ Ted Connors” for a description of the library book he checked out in Montgomery, Alabama, on December 20, 2010, that was confiscated at his work place on December 22, 2010, by National Security Agency and Homeland Security agents “under the Patriot Act” and never returned. Ted Connors has also been trying to get a copy of the library's original December 20, 2010, check out information, but has been stonewalled at the library and other county government offices he has contacted.
Five months ago in a February 21, 2011, email to a research colleague, Ted had described the book cover and its images that he could remember of Zeus and the Parthenon. Today Ted sent me that February emailed description and photo examples of Zeus and the Parthenon that he thinks are close to what were on the confiscated book's front cover (below).
Comment: I can't get over this report, the confiscation of a library book about GREEK MYTHOLOGY!! Seriously, WTF? My answer to this is to do something rebellious today. Yes, read something classical.... If you can't be bothered to go the library to get your banned Greek mythology, then I suggest www.sacred-texts.com. It's full of old books with interesting information if you understand the religion. Greek mythology is mostly about the worship of the sun, moon, stars and heavens that is hidden by being anthropomorphised. It's really quite simple and the way to decode all the old astronomically based mythology. Zeus represents universal energy. I will now expect a knock at the door....
Pissed-off elves bombard Icelandic town with rocks
Musician attempts to placate meddling huldufólk
The Register, 4th July 2011
The good burghers of the Icelandic town of Bolungarvik have intervened to prevent further action by elves who are evidently unhappy they weren't consulted about the construction of an anti-avalanche barrier.
Bolungarvik recently suffered a bombardment of rocks during "routine dynamiting" on the barrier, with fist-sized missiles causing damage to several properties.
This led locals to suspect the huldufólk (hidden people) had finally got a bit miffed with civil engineering projects, including the construction last year of a road tunnel through a hill.
Icelandic folklore advises caution when venturing into possible huldufólk territory, and disturbing the rocks in which they're believed to live.
Comment: This reminds me of the research by Jacques Vallee and his book Passport To Magnolia: On UFOs, Folklore, and Parallel Worlds where there some intriguing discussion of the 'little' folk... Since I lived in Norway, I am very aware that there is still a strong belief in trolls (I have met a few... that's a joke) and modern day accounts still occur. You can download this as an e-book (pdf) 39.6MB here. The image icon was generated from some nice artwork, found on a website with an article about the Huldufólk .
'Deer with wings' causes power outage in Montana

HELENA, Mont. – A Montana resident says an energy company has identified the cause of a brief power outage as "deer with wings." Lee Bridges says she was outside with her dogs around the time the power went out when a NorthWestern Energy truck pulled up, giving her a chance to ask the driver what caused the problem.
She says he pointed up and said, "Apparently, we've got deer with wings."
Comment: OK, I can accept the explanation of a giant eagle dropping its prey...
A Mermaid Tale: something that I don't believe happened, but I don't know what did.
The Big Study, 11th June 2011
Well, who doesn't like mermaids?? Even Disney recognizes that the concept is charming and attractive, and in folklore those two words have their own darker meanings. I like all the Mer-people, Aquafolk, Naiads et al, and will heartily sympathize with good encounter tales of such beings. I'm not sure that the one which follows meets that criterion. [...]
Regarding the event itself: the witness was attracted to a commotion among the "natives" who had netted a creature. Upon approaching the scene, the witness saw that what they had in their net was no "fish" but something with human characteristics.
The witness asked what it was and was informed that they had, once again, caught a mermaid. [who knows what actual terminology was used, as the "broken-english-using" locals would seem unlikely to be using the term "mermaid" --- this begins to concern me a bit].
He was told that they wouldn't kill it but that it would die on its own. Which, "weeping", it did over the space of a half an hour.
Comment: Well, I am spending more time studying ancient mythology and astronomy, so the enigma of mermaids is becomes highly relevant, especially when we have modern stories to fan the flames and keep ancient memories alive.
Gone in SIX seconds: The moment a gaping pothole swallowed a lorry in China
Daily Mail, 30th May 2011
Staring into the huge hole in the road, this Chinese official probably cannot believe his eyes. That's because a lorry has fallen down this massive fracture in the road which opened up as he drove over it. The drama unfolded in the city of Changchun, which is the capital of north eastern China's Jilin province, earlier today
The two men who were inside the cab at the time of the accident were both injured, but there were no reports of how badly. Authorities are now investigating the accident but they suspect the truck, which was carrying steel pipes, was overweighted. The accident is just one of hundreds that take place in China each year, with the country being one of the most dangerous places in the world to drive. [...] The roads are also notorious for poor building standards.
Comment: We had a rash of potholes in Canada last week but I am not sure I should assume that we are being hit again from the cosmos... Whatever, I am seriously impressed with this hole, but I am a little surprised that there does not seem to be much substance to this road,

The book of secrets
The Age News, 29th May 2011
It has baffled code-breakers and linguists for centuries, now some wonder whether an unreadable 600-year-old book was a prank, writes Michael Day.
SOMEWHERE deep in the bowels of Yale's Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library - the Ivy League institution's own cemetery of lost books - lies a tome that experts have studied for centuries, but which has yet to be understood by a single soul.
The book has no known author or official title; Yale librarians simply refer to it as MS 408. But thanks to its peculiar language, symbols and diagrams, often strangely familiar but insistently elusive in meaning, it has intrigued and frustrated anthropologists, linguists and mathematicians for centuries. Even the elite cryptologists at the US National Security Agency drew a blank after spending years trying to decode it in the 1950s.
Comment: A nice example of how hard some had to work to keep certain information away from the prying eyes of corrupt 'authorities' that would kill you immediately if they thought there was something to be gained. Yet, look at some of the history of the book and the organisations still trying to decrypt it, that should tell you something too...
Barack Obama's car, nicknamed 'the beast', gets stuck
BBC News, 23rd May 2011
Barack Obama's cavalcade car caused some drama when it got stuck emerging from the gates of the US embassy in Dublin. The low bottom of the car, nicknamed 'the beast' because of its bomb-proof features, seemed to catch on a ramp crossing over the gateway.
It is not clear if Mr Obama was in the car involved as security officials blocked the view of the incident. The US President and First Lady then left by another exit.
Comment: LOL! LOL! LOL! I know that when the US president is away from home, there is a small army of people who travel with him (I know because I have travelled and I have met Americans who know the details) and there are extensive plans, so this little hiccup is even funnier.... Another little reminder that it does not matter who you, plans and circumstances do occur that we cannot always foresee.
ogy, but our scientists insist MUST exist.
Amazon seller lists book at $23,698,655.93 -- plus shipping
CNN News, 25th April 2011
Lots of normal people would pay $23 for a book. But $23.7 million (plus $3.99 shipping) for a scientific book about flies!?
This unthinkable sticker price for "The Making of a Fly" on Amazon.com was spotted on April 18 by Michael Eisen, an evolutionary biologist and blogger. The market-blind book listing was not the result of uncontrollable demand for Peter Lawrence's "classic work in developmental biology," Eisen writes. Instead, it appears it was sparked by a robot price war.
Comment: I presume this is what happened when I found the book Through the Curtain (1983) by Viola Petitt Neal, at $999.97 that prompted me to write a new webpage A Thousand Dollars Book Celebration with long quotes from the book. It was like that for at least 3/4 days and infact, I should have checked because that was only the lowest price available for 1 of the 2 books on sale.... Well, this robot pricing or price gouging by Amazon is quite a joke and I think there is something very strange about all this.... Well, I have found a copy of a so called rare book on Amazon.co.uk for an extremely cheap price but the same book was being price gouged on Amazon.com.
Heavens above, they're desert flying fish
NT News, 17th March 2011
THE freak phenomenon of fish raining from the sky continued with another load found bucketing down in a Territory community.
The small bait could be found en masse at the airport strip in Lajamanu - about 550km southwest of Katherine. Territory politician Rob Knight was flabbergasted to find the fish on the red soil on the edge of the Tanami Desert - hundreds of kilometres from Lake Argyle and Lake Elliot. "These fish had not long been on the ground," he said. The NT News reported on February 28 last year how Lajamanu was covered not once, but twice, by fish falling from the sky.
Local Aged Care Centre co-ordinator Christine Balmer said then she had to pinch herself when she found "hundreds". "These fish were alive when they hit the ground," she said.
A tornado may be responsible for the phenomenon. But Mr Knight speculated increased UFO activity in the Top End, as often reported in the NT News was behind the wacky appearance.
Comment: We have seen increasing levels of Fortean phenomena and I expect it to get worse as the magnetics on the planet gets more and more unstable.
Euthanized Oklahoma puppy, Wall-E, rises from dead, now looking to be adopted by loving family
New York Daily, 2nd March 2011
A puppy euthanized by veterinarians has risen from the dead. The black-and-white pooch was one of five young dogs put to sleep Saturday at a shelter in Sulphur, Okla., News 9 in Oklahoma City reported. Each dog was checked and confirmed to be dead, then the 3-month-old and his four siblings were placed in a trash bin.
On Sunday morning, an animal control officer looked into the bin and discovered that the one pup somehow survived. "He was just as healthy as could be," Scott Prall told News 9.
The puppies were selected to be euthanized because of illness, as well as overcrowding due to limited shelter space in the state, said Amanda Kloski, a veterinarian in Oklahoma who has been caring for the puppy since his resurrection.
Comment: OK, we can't JUMP to any conclusions but maybe we can happily skip to the idea are we seeing a preference for life over death kicking in? Stories like this are certainly worth noting, just in case we are seeing another new phenomenon appearing on the planet...
Laying this one must have been eggscruciating! The hen's egg eight times heavier than normal
Daily Mail, 21st February 2011
For a free-range hen who just laid an egg more than eight times heavier than normal, Hattie the hen seems remarkably unruffled. The egg weighs a hefty 5.7oz, is three and a half inches long and eight inches in circumference. [...]
In Newquay last autumn a hotel chef preparing breakfast was left shell-shocked today after discovering a perfectly round egg, a billion-to-one discovery.
Comment: I really don't know why these poor hens are laying these enormous eggs, but its still does not beat the story of the cockerel that turned into a hen in a matter of days when the hens were all killed by a fox. Maybe we should wonder about the nature of consciousness and the power of intent associated with even the most humble feathered creature. See more below:

What a cracking find! Pensioner discovers an egg within an egg
Daily Mail, 22nd February 2011
"Retired farmer John Fellows, 68, had been making scrambled eggs when he cracked open the large outer shell of the ordinary chicken egg. But when he put it aside to clean up, he spotted a smaller egg the size of a marble inside. [...] Experts say the rare phenomenon is just a quirk of nature and can occur if the chicken receives a shock during egg production."
This is getting ridiculous... I wonder if experts mean an 'electric shock' during egg production...
Super Grandma fights off 6 jewelry shop robbers with her handbag and wins (Video)
Batangas Today, 9th February 2011
A 71-year old super grandma from UK became an instant hero when she fights off 6 jewelry robbers with her handbag and eventually won, in which her act of heroism was caught on video as shown below.
As her story was revealed on Daily Mail on Wednesday, Ann Timson, have drove away six robbers who tried to steal from Michael Jones Jewelers, in the town of Northampton, in broad daylight on Monday.
“Three lads followed him and when I saw their arms going I thought the kid was being beaten up. My mother’s instinct kicked in and I ran across the road, shouting at the lads to stop it.” Mrs. Timson told the Daily Mail.
Comment: Awesome! No Fear! Watch the video, the old woman sprintered to the crime scene and used some brute force.... More:
Have-a-go-hero who helped 'supergran' foil hammer raiders reveals pensioner inspired him to pounce
Daily Mail, 9th February 2011
"Mrs Timson has expressed her surprise that no-one else had intervened before she began swinging her handbag. But Mr Rowley, a freelance sports therapist, said he felt criticism of the members of the public who did not intervene was unjust. 'I think it is excellent she stepped in and that she didn't get hurt, but I don't think people should be criticised for not stepping in earlier,' he said. 'There were six lads with sledgehammers and it could have ended differently.' Mrs Timson made her first public appearance since the robbery at a Northampton Borough Council cabinet meeting on Wednesday night. She was greeted with a cheer as she entered the room and hugged and congratulated as she left."
Rep. Giffords starts rehab, is recovering at 'lightning speed'
Ultimate Clear Lake, 27th January 2011
U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords continued a recovery on Wednesday that doctors called remarkable and "lightning speed" as she moved out of an intensive care unit and began full-time rehabilitation 18 days after a bullet ripped through the left side of her brain.
As police halted traffic and a media horde captured the scene, Giffords was moved by ambulance early Wednesday from Memorial Hermann Hospital to TIRR Memorial Hermann, just two blocks away in the Texas Medical Center. She received physical therapy after her transfer and was expected to also participate in occupational and speech therapies.
"Since Gabby arrived last Friday, we have noticed daily improvements in her neurological condition," Dr. Dong Kim, Giffords' neurosurgeon, said at an afternoon news conference Wednesday. "We're very pleased with that. In terms of recoveries for brain issues, this is really at lightning speed."
Comment: I truly believe that people are praying for this woman all over the world and wish her well, hence the remarkable recovery.
Giffords strong enough to watch TV for an hour
CNN, 26th January 2011
Gabrielle Giffords watched an hour of television from her hospital bed, a development her husband Mark Kelly called "exciting," said Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a friend of Giffords who spoke to Kelly Tuesday.
Kenyan mother 'cursed' with six sets of twins
BBC News, 27th January 2011
Most women would struggle to cope with six sets of twins but for Gladys Bulinya it is even more difficult - as many people in her part of Kenya think twins are cursed.
Her relatives will have nothing to do with her, and her husband left her, fearing she was jinxed, after the sixth pair of twins arrived last year.
Comment: This woman has been so badly treated... I hope this woman gets some help due to this article, it seems that life has been really tough.
Italian man shot in head sneezes out bullet
The Independent News, 12th January 2011
A reveller shot in the head amazed doctors by sneezing out the bullet and is expected to make a full recovery with no lasting harm.
Darco Sangermano, 28, was accidentally shot during a New Year's Eve party in Naples as he celebrated with his girlfriend. The bullet entered his head through his temple, breaking the temporal bone and passing behind his eye, before coming to rest in his nose.
Mr Sangermano was one of three people shot during the celebrations in Naples. One person died from their injuries. He was taken to hospital and while waiting to see a doctor, the bullet popped out of his right nostril. After receiving a check-up, Mr Sangermano was discharged.
Comment: Yes, this is really strange... but I find these stories of people surviving bullets in the head quite amazing...
Giffords' intern: 'I tried to react as best as I could'
Daniel Hernandez had basic nursing training, hurried to stem blood flow
MSNBC News, 10th January 2011
A calm and composed congressional intern who underwent basic nursing training while in high school said Monday that he knew that if U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was to have any chance of surviving her gunshot wound, he would have to stem the flow of blood coming from her head.
“I could tell she had a very severe gunshot but I was just trying do my best until emergency medical services could arrive,” Daniel Hernandez, 20, told TODAY’s Matt Lauer via satellite.
Hernandez and a handful of witnesses to a lone gunman’s shooting spree outside a Tucson supermarket are being hailed for their actions in the aftermath of the gunfire that transformed a peaceful Saturday morning political gathering into a scene of carnage and chaos.
Comment: I am not interested in the politics here or the conspiracy theories, I just don't think the Congresswoman Gabby Giffords deserved a bullet in the back of the head. I am seriously impressed that the bullet went straight through her brain and even though she was badly injured, she could respond to her intern Hernandez, who might have saved her life. I am glad she had someone who really did cared enough about her. I have also seen the reports of the brave woman that tried to knock the gun out of the shooters hands and the old people who went after him and wrestled him to the ground, one of them was 74 years old, Ret. Col.: Loughner Cried "You're Hurting Me!", it seems the old folks in Arizona are quite tough... I am just not interested in the politics but I am quite shocked about the gun toting warlike tone of the political rhetoric, even from prominent politicians. Maybe this is just a reflection of the survival of the fittest meme - by any means - that especially dominates American society. Whatever, if the acrimony I have seen on the forums is anything to go by, there will be more similar events. More:
The progressive “climate of hate:” An illustrated primer, 2000-2010
Michelle Malkin, January 10, 2011
OK, this primer was quite a shock for me. Some of the images and posters are disgusting and vile, it's almost like the ordinary people really want to make it clear how they feel and it's usually quite graphic... The whole society is going down the toilet, I think sooner or later there is going to be a civil war.
A Creepy Monster of the Forest: The Albino, Vampiric Redwood Tree
Discovery News, 9th December 2010
Organisms with albino mutations are pretty weird in general, but albino plants are extra weird.
Ultra-rare albino redwood trees completely lack the green pigment chlorophyll, which they need to live (by photosynthesizing nutrients from light). These plants are literally vampires. They are pale (everwhite instead of evergreen), and they survive by sucking the life from other trees.
These vampires remain attached to the roots of their healthy, normal, parent trees (coastal redwoods can reproduce asexually by sprouting new shoots from roots or stumps), and survive by sucking energy from them. They can keep this up for a century. Historian Sandy Lyndon explained the phenomenon to KQED: [...]
Only about 25 of these trees are known to exist around the world, eight of which are at Henry Cowell State Park in California, where rangers and researchers from Stanford University and UC Santa Cruz are studying them, as KQED explains:
Their needles are limp and waxy. They’re the exact color of a glow-in-the-dark star you might find in a kid’s bedroom. And while no one really knows for sure, albino redwood trees may be extremely rare…. And yet, eight of them live here. This park has the largest known concentration of albino redwoods anywhere, and that makes it the epicenter for a scientific mystery.Comment: Well, I Know all about spiritual vampires... but I have never heard of vampire trees, incredible...
Too much seasonal spirit: Abu Dhabi hotel 'regrets' £7m Christmas tree
Emirates Palace hotel has second thoughts over decision to 'overload' tree with diamonds, rubies and other gems
The Guardian, 19th December 2010
An Abu Dhabi luxury hotel that boasted an $11m (£7m) Christmas tree decorated with gold and gems has admitted it may have taken the holiday spirit a bit too far.
A statement from the Emirates Palace hotel said it regretted "attempts to overload" the Christmas tree tradition by adorning it with premium bling including gold, rubies, diamonds and other precious stones from a hotel jeweller.
The tree was unveiled last week with full fanfare in a hotel that features its own gold bar vending machine and a one-week $1m package that includes private jet jaunts around the Middle East.
But the hotel management apparently had second thoughts after questions arose about whether the opulent tree was innocent good cheer or unfortunate bad taste.
Comment: The impression I am starting to get is that the super rich are worrying that too many people are wising up to the tricks used to create the disparity and so they no longer feel so smug and safe with such ostentatious displays of wealth.

Shellshocked: Chicken Lays Monster Egg
AOL News, 9th December 2010
(Dec. 9) -- Poached or over easy? A woman and her husband were left with their brains scrambled after discovering a huge 4-inch-long egg laid by one of their chickens.
Patricia Mae of Seven Sisters, South Wales, in the U.K., thought her husband, James, was pulling her leg when he told her about the large egg last month, reports the website This Is South Wales.
"I just couldn't believe what I was seeing," a shellshocked Patricia said. "We've been keeping chickens for years, but we've never seen an egg this size before.
Comment: The question is WHY are we seeing hens laying monster eggs and even the totally bizarre story of a cock turning into a hen overnight and laying eggs. If that happened with humans, women having oversized babies and a few real men giving birth, that would frighten a lot of people right?
Head teacher forced to apologise for error-laden report
The Telegraph, 30th November 2010
The form tutor sent the ''shocking'' email to the parents of a pupil in her class at Gleed Girls' Technology College, in Spalding, Lincs. Some of the mistakes seem to be typing errors made in haste, such as "requriements" and "everning".
But others, such as "boardering" and "occaisions" indicate a need for the teacher to be sent back to primary school.
Comment: Terrible... I am sure people have noticed that my blog often has spelling and grammatical errors, but my html editor does not have a spellchecker, and I don't see many errors as the brain often sees what it wants to see, not what is actually written. In fact, when I was trying to edit my book alone, I seriously thought I had dsylexia. Yes, I have had complaints because there were about 4 errors per chapter after many weeks of trying to erradicate the mistakes. I suppose the grammer was not brilliant too, but I did take a dim view of people moaning especially when I was trying to make people aware that our world is dramatically changing, and I was also under some serious psychic stress that I could have done without. At least I can say that after four years, my insight has been proven to be correct, regardless of the typos.
Three teenagers survive 50 days adrift in Pacific
BBC News, 25th November 2010
Filo Filo, Samu Perez and Edward Nasau The teenagers survived mainly on coconuts and rainwater
Three teenage boys have been found alive after being lost in their boat in the Pacific Ocean for 50 days. The boys, from the Tokelau Islands, a New Zealand-administered territory in the South Pacific, had been given up for dead after an unsuccessful search.
A tuna fishing boat picked them up near Fiji and is taking them to hospital for treatment for severe sunburn. The boys survived on coconuts, water they trapped on a tarpaulin and a seabird they managed to catch. 'Strong mental spirit'
The boys - Samu Perez and Filo Filo, both 15, and Edward Nasau, 14 - had gone missing from Atafu atoll in a small aluminium boat after an annual sporting event on 5 October. They were presumed to have died after unsuccessful searches by the New Zealand air force.
Comment: 50 days? That's incredible...
Revealed: A million marriages are 'invalid' because of Church of England blunder
Daily Mail, 25th November 2010
Two million husbands and wives are not lawfully married because of a Church of England blunder, it was revealed yesterday.
Their church weddings are legally invalid because the vicars who married them used the wrong form of words, CofE lawyers admitted.
The error affects more than a million weddings celebrated over the past 30 years in churches across England.
Comment: This is what I would call some serious incompetence... I wonder if this wll impact people's personal beliefs about marriage...
US teen burglar busted on MySpace
Stuff.co.nz, 10th November 2010
A US teenager has been caught when he logged on to his MySpace account after breaking into a house and forgot to log off.
Local media say that when police were called to the Florida home after the robbery they discovered the computer was logged into a MySpace account in the name of Robert Rupp. Police arrested Rupp soon afterwards and he had screwdrivers in his pockets. He later admitted to the break-in, saying he did it because it was cold outside.
Comment: Interestingly, this is happening quite frequently. People break-in, make themselves at home and 'forget' to cover their tracks...
Chilean miner's latest amazing feat ... the New York marathon
The Guardian, 7th November 2010
Edison Pena was greeted by cheers and a media whirlwind during first trip abroad to take part in 26-mile event
Ever since Edison Pena, one of the 33 miners who had been trapped underground in Chile for 69 days, arrived in New York on Thursday on his first trip abroad to run the New York Marathon – which he ran today – this Crocodile Dundee with a pickaxe has been on the kind of high-profile media tour that would make Paris Hilton envious. [...]
After it transpired that Pena had also maintained his daily runs in the mine, Mary Wittenberg, CEO of New York Road Runners, the organisation behind the marathon, invited Pena to New York to watch the marathon. Already showing the diva quality of a future star, Pena retorted that simply wasn't good enough: he wanted to run in it.
Comment: Now, I find that astounding.... Inspirational!
Video: World laps up lottery story
The Chronicle Herald, 5th November 2010
Couple set off media frenzy by giving away most of $11-million win
LOWER TRURO — Allen and Violet Large can’t quite understand all the fuss over their decision to give away the lion’s share of their whopping $11.2-million lottery win. The elderly Nova Scotia couple say they managed to get by in their 147-year-old house with their prized 1987 Dodge Diplomat for many decades before striking it rich in a Lotto 6-49 draw last July.
But after it was revealed late Wednesday that they had handed out all of the winnings — minus about two per cent tucked away for themselves "for a rainy day"— media outlets were calling non-stop before they took the phone off the hook.
"We’re overwhelmed with everything," Violet said in the couple’s cosy living room in Lower Truro. "We didn’t do this to get recognition. We did this because we wanted to. . . . We’re just country hicks."
Comment: I was going to comment about the original story and then I saw that this act of altruism has set off a media frenzy. Since most people are in survival mode and/or fixated on acquiring money, it's impossible for most to understand others who don't place the same level of importance on money and status. If you are interested in the evolution of consciousness, I recommend the book Spiral Dynamics and the research of Dr. Clare W. Graves who made some important breakthroughs in the Levels of Human Existence. This will certainly help thoughtful people understand their thinking in comparison to others. Here's the original story:
What would you do with $11,255,272?
Couple lavishes entire lotto jackpot on charities, family
The Chronicle Herald, 4th November 2010
"LOWER TRURO — They won $11.2 million from a lottery ticket in July. And now every penny is gone. But Allen and Violet Large didn’t spend any of it on themselves. And that’s just the way they like it. "What you’ve never had, you never miss," said Violet, 78.
New Giant Butterfly Sighting
Cryptomundo, 1st November 2010
Has there been another strange sighting as before, but in Arizona instead of California?
There apparently has been another “Giant Butterfly” sighting, similar to the previous reported one here.[...] What the Arizona sighting describes is a ‘BLACK CIRCLE WITHIN A YELLOWISH CIRCLE. THE YELLOW BEING THIN AND THE BLACK THE CENTER…on the underside of the wings. Not many flying creatures have this marking under their wings with the exception of the OWL BUTTERFLY. If one views photos of the wings of the OWL BUTTERFLY, it will see that these same markings when seen from below, look like eyes and that is how the OWL BUTTERFLY is able to ward off larger birds.
It has the appearance of an owl staring down at them. But my sighting in California and the Arizona sighting were of an enormous butterfly…or an object that looked and flew like one…but the markings of the OWL BUTTERFLY are hard to shake…could this actually be a gigantic owl butterfly?. Whether this creature is indeed an enormous tride and true butterfly..owl butterfly species or some kind of butterfly creature from another realm of reality or some lost cave in Australia, its presence could mean quite the contrary to an unsettling future.
Hope?..a blessing of some kind?..a metamorphasis for the earth as a butterfly symbolizes as we enter a new age?..this sort of symbolism doesn’t seem to dwell well with the usual crop of doom and gloomers though but it is just as genuine an offer as earthquakes and disasters. Hopefully even more credible sightings will come in on the giant butterfly with some genuine video or photographs.
Comment: The cryptologists are soon going to become very busy... Maybe there should be no surprise that people think that these type of strange sightings are a harbinger of doom, as these beliefs run very deep...
Aircraft crashes after crocodile on board escapes and sparks panic
The Telegraph, 21st October 2010
A small airliner crashed into a house, killing a British pilot and 19 others after a crocodile smuggled into the aircraft in a sports bag escaped and started a panic.
The plane came down despite no apparent mechanical problems during an internal flight in the Democratic Republic of Congo. It has now emerged that the crash was caused by the concealed reptile escaping and causing a stampede in the cabin, throwing the aircraft off-balance.
Comment: Well, I am not sure how to categorise this incident. I suppose it's amazing that someone survived to tell the weird tale... But, on a deeper level, one selfish and stupid person, took a gamble that cost them their own life and many others. It's like some just don't even appreciate why certain rules are imposed in the first place. They don't have the ability to think about ALL the possible consequences and therefore come up with all the worse case scenario, which is exactly what happened.
Cancer 'is purely man-made' say scientists after finding almost no trace of disease in Egyptian mummies
Daily Mail, 14th October 2010
Cancer is a man-made disease, fuelled by the excesses of modern life, study of ancient remains from fossils to mummies has concluded.
A review of Egyptian mummies, fossil records dating back to dinosaurs and classical literature found tumours to be extremely rare until recent times, when factors from pollution to poor diet made life more toxic.
They discovered that the disease rate has risen dramatically since the Industrial Revolution, in particular childhood cancer – proving that the rise is not simply due to people living longer. They believe that a better understanding of the origins of cancer could lead to new treatments for the disease which claims more than 150,000 lives a year in the UK alone.
Comment: I explained in my book, that the Egyptians had a deeply spiritual understanding of their connection with cosmic and earth energies and the need to maintain balance, especially in stormy geomagnetic conditions. According to Russian sources, this is how the pharoahs kept cancer at bay.
Brazilian clown elected to congress
ABC News, 5th October 2010
A professional clown has picked up 1.3 million votes in the Brazilian election to represent Sao Paulo in congress.
Tiririca, a 45-year-old television humorist whose real name is Francisco Oliveira, received the highest number of votes for any federal deputy across the country. His TV campaign ads, featuring him dancing around in a tiny hat and multi-coloured outfit with a cheesy smile, were easily the most irreverent spots in the lead-up to the general elections.
"It couldn't get any worse. Vote for me," was his campaign slogan, which were followed by a number of riffs tapping into public cynicism about politics.
"What does a federal deputy do? I have no idea, but vote for me and I'll let you know," went one of his ads.Comment: LOL!! Vote for me, it can't get any worse.... LOL!! Cheesy, but obviously popular, with this one video alone generating 5.1 million YouTube hits since 17th August 2010, Tiririca - The Brazilian clown adverts
Prophecies Fulfilled: From Fatima to Kibeho and Medjugorje
Ministry News, 5th September 2010
There are two sets of Marian apparitions of the 20th century (one extending into the 21st) that have had much in common, and whose similarity is quite noteworthy for the immeasurable consequences. They are the apparitions of Medjugorje, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and the apparitions of Kibeho, Rwanda.
Both apparitions began in 1981. Both contained a group of young visionaries, mostly teenagers, experiencing the phenomena – six visionaries at Medjugorje, seven at Kibeho. Both featured extraordinary supernatural signs witnessed by thousands of people. Both contained visions of the afterlife given to the young visionaries. Perhaps most importantly, both apparitions correctly predicted significant world catastrophes, from war to genocide.
More specifically, Our Lady of Medjugorje correctly predicted the wars in the former Yugoslavia and the end of Communism in the region, while Our Lady of Kibeho correctly predicted the Rwandan genocides. What is most remarkable is that these correct prophecies came years before any serious political or military conflict was noticeable in the regions of these apparitions.
Comment: Well, I have never heard before that the people of Rwanda were warned and given time to stop the genocide. Regardless of what you belive to be the source of these messages, due to my experiences, I will say now, truth is used as bait, that can lead to some big lies, but if you want to read about the science associated with heaven and hell, I can recommend Jay Alfred's Between The Moon and Earth.
BBC News - Many injured as bull jumps into crowd at Spain arena
BBC News, 19th August 2010
A bull jumped into the stands at a bullring in northern Spain injuring up to 40 people, according to officials. It happened in Tafalla, when the animal leapt over the fence and climbed up the stairs of the stands, knocking people over. [...]
Spectators were watching a contest of "recortadores", where participants attempt to dodge the bull as it runs frantically around the arena. The incident comes as the country is split over whether bull fighting should be completely outlawed. Last month Catalonia became the first major Spanish region to ban the deadly sport.
Comment: Maybe, now a few more people will think about banning this tradition 'sport'. On a metaphysical level, I imagine that in the morphic field that belongs to the animal "bull" consciousness, there is quite a lot of resentment towards humans, so the odd bull going beserk should be no surprise.

Shot in the head ... but he drove himself to hospital
Sydney Morning Herald, 12th August 2010
A man drove himself to hospital after being shot in the head in the Hunter Valley yesterday evening.
The 37-year-old was wounded during a confrontation on Wollombi Road, Muswellbrook about 7.30pm, police said. He hid in an Allyn Way house, before heading to Muswellbrook Hospital for treatment. He was flown to John Hunter Hospital and is in a stable condition. Police said they searched the area but no one was arrested and no weapons were found.
Comment: Wow! This is on par with the women who made a cup of tea for the police when they arrived after she had been shot in the head, but the bullet had passed through and miraculously she survived to make lots more cups of tea!
Indian police look to pyramid power to cut accidents
AP News, 13th July 2010
MUMBAI — They have been credited with supernatural or paranormal properties since the days of ancient Egypt. Now the putative power of pyramids is to be harnessed by Indian police to cut road accidents. Traffic officers in Nagpur, 540 miles (870 kilometres) west of Mumbai, have agreed to allow small pyramids to be placed at 10 accident-prone sites in the city to see if their claimed positive energy can reduce crashes.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Sahebrao Patil said the road safety initiative came about after a meeting with an expert in Vastu, an ancient Hindu system of construction which is similar to Chinese Feng Shui. "He told me that he had placed a number of pyramids on roads outside the city and the results were excellent. The number of accidents reduced. He wanted to do it in the city, so I said, 'OK, no problem'," Patil told AFP.
"He's going to be installing them in 10 spots. They won't be on the road directly but at the corner of chowks (squares) or near traffic signals so they won't obstruct traffic." Vastu expert Sushil Fatehpuria, who offered his services free of charge, said that each 30 centimetre (one foot) tall pyramid will have a copper bottom and five smaller pyramids inside. "I think the accidents are caused by negative energies. So we need to minimise or convert the negative energy into positive ones," he said.
"I think the accidents are caused by negative energies. So we need to minimise or convert the negative energy into positive ones," he said. "I will energise the pyramids. I will transfer my positive thoughts into the pyramids." Patil said his officers' own, more human, efforts to cut the number of road accidents would continue during the experiment. "We will see in six months. If it gets positive results then that's excellent," he added. A combination of an increase in drivers, many of them untrained, poor road planning and lax law enforcement have made India's roads the most dangerous in the world. More than 114,000 people die each year, according to the World Bank.
Comment: OK, yes I have studied the science of the energies associated pyramids, and I can accept the concept of transmuting the 'negative' energies associated with an accident 'blackspot' but I don't think bad drivers can be re-balanced to make them better drivers! Here is another solution that some might find interesing: dream car 123: electric car gets pyramid power Don't miss the videos!
Mystery of falling tadpoles returns
Japan Times, 2nd June 2010
On Monday morning, a man working in a field in front of his house in Oyama, Tochigi Prefecture, reported that he found about 10 tadpoles, which he suspects fell from the sky.
Since last June, tadpoles falling from the sky have been reported in Ishikawa, Miyagi and Saitama prefectures. While some experts believe the tadpoles are dropped by birds, other lay the blame on tornadoes.
Comment: This is Fortean territory. The question that nobody can answer is: If tadpoles are scooped up by a passing tornado or strong "updraft" and dumped elsewhere, why is there NEVER any sign of associated debris from the original source? Polliwogs!?! LOL!!
Girl, 8, grows new kidneys after old ones fail
nineMSM, 18th May 2010
An eight-year-old British girl whose kidneys failed because of constant infections has astounded doctors by growing two new organs.
Specialists found the two extra kidneys while operating on Angel Burton in 2007 when she was just five, the Daily Mail reports. They discovered the two "healthy" spares had taken over the role of the old kidneys, curing her of her problem.
Comment: Girl called Angel was born with spare kidneys that grew when required?
Airport plods seize man with electric vibro-pleasure shoes
The Register, 10th May 2010
Bumbling Pakistani security operatives have detained a man at Karachi airport for attempting to board a plane with a pair of electrical vibro-massage shoes. Multiple reports indicate that the passenger, Faiz Mohammad, 30, was about to board a Thai Airways flight to Oman when he was seized following a check of his effects. X-ray operators had been alarmed to note batteries and circuitry built into the soles of his shoes. However it appears that the offending gadgetry was not the firing circuit of a shoe bomb but a massage device: the shoes were reportedly the rechargeable "Good Vibrations" model, intended to deliver tingly foot fun to the wearer as he or she walks about.
Comment: This just made me laugh, but I do wonder what these "good vibrations" actually do to the human energy field... (I don't think the image icon is the real electro-vibro version, but they looked the part...)
Uganda: Students Riot Over Evil Spirits
AllAfrica.com, 31st March 2010
Jinja — Students of St. Mark Naminya High School in Njeru, Mukono District have engaged police in running battles and destroyed property worth millions of shillings after management kicked out witchdoctors hired to perform rituals at the institution.
Two witch doctors, called in to cleanse the school of demons which are alleged to have been sexually assaulting students, had been hired by some school administrators following consultations with the sub-county leadership. Wakisi Sub-county Vice Chairman Ramathan Kabwiso alleged that female students have been complaining about being 'sexually assaulted' by ghosts since last year. He said numerous prayer sessions by pastors had failed to solve the problem.
Comment: I know most people will think that these African people are just too primitive but they are much more aware of multi-dimensional realties. What's more, since plastic shamanism has become quite popular, it seems that some have learnt how to do 'walk about' in the astral body with their inpure intentions. I have personally heard about molestation from a woman who is quite sensitive and the male perpetrator was someone they had given permission to invade their personal energy field during a so-called "training" course. So beware!
Hen produces figure eight-shaped egg
Ananova News, 23rd March 2010
Mrs Dong, of Shijiazhuang, northern China's Hebei province, first suspected something unusual when she heard the hen making unusual noises one night. "I had never heard anything like it before. When I approached she stopped making the noise but as soon as I left she started again," she said. Mrs Dong said her neighbours had all been coming around to her home to see the egg for themselves. "The next morning, I was so surprised to find the weird-shaped egg in the hen's cage."
Comment: Yes, China is the no. 1 place in the world for the bizarre, as the numerous abnormalities, deformities and genetic mutations increase.
It's raining fish ... no really
NT News, 28th February 2010
WHILE the Top End and Central Australia have been battered by torrential rains, a Territory town has had fish falling from the sky.
The freak phenomena happened not once, but twice, on Thursday and Friday afternoon about 6pm at Lajamanu, about 550km southwest of Katherine. NEWSBREAKER Christine Balmer, who took these photos of the fish on the ground and in a bucket, had to pinch herself when she was told ``hundreds and hundreds" of small white fish had fallen from the sky.
"It rained fish in Lajamanu on Thursday and Friday night," she said, "They fell from the sky everywhere. "Locals were picking them up off the footy oval and on the ground everywhere. "These fish were alive when they hit the ground." [...]
"It's a very unusual event," he said. "With an updraft, (fish and water picked up) could get up high - up to 60,000 or 70,000 feet. "Or possibly from a tornado over a large water body - but we haven't had any reports," he said.
Comment: Yes, the high strangeness is at Fortean levels now... Of course, nothing new, but I would imagine we should be looking at the the frequencey of such events.
Fish Fall At Lajamanu
Animal X Video clip! [5:26] Mention of 1984 fish falls in London too! Scientists can only talk about tornadoes and water spouts but usually there is NEVER any reports of tornadoes or water spouts. What's more, fish and frogs travelling great distances is a bizarre explanation as often they are still alive and fresh and can be safely eaten! As far as I am concerned, an hypersidimensional explanation is far more believable, and explains frogs found embedded in rocks during mining that suddenly come alive and often reamin live for some time. Don't believe those who simply repeat the dogma, find out what alternative thinkers have to say!
Couple buys house to help neighbor stay
UPI News, 21st March 2010
INDIANAPOLIS, March 21 (UPI) -- An Indiana couple has purchased a neighbor's home in a tax auction -- because they say they want to help him stay in the house.
Debbie and Clint Harrell's winning $4,272 bid at a Marion County tax sale meant neighbor Mark Reeves would not have to move out of the house, put up for sale when his landlord stopped paying property taxes on it, The Indianapolis Star reported Sunday. The Harrells decided to help Reeves despite their own financial worries. Clint Harrell lost his job at a steel company in November, and Debbie Harrell, 57, is on disability, the newspaper said. Debbie Harrell says Reeves called her in tears after the auction.
Comment: Heart warming news and a reminder there are kind hearted compassionate people that have not been brainwashed by society or so called spiritual teachings to the extent that they consider themselves first and foremost in every situation.
12-year-old girl saves Chilean island
Press TV, 4th March 2010
A 12-year old girl has saved almost the entire population of Robinson Crusoe Island off the coast of Chile from a strong tsunami. The inhabitants of the small island were asleep as a massive tsunami, initiated by the February 27 earthquake, was about to reach the coast.
According to reports in the Chilean media, Martina Maturana felt the first slight tremors whilst everyone was asleep on Robinson Crusoe Island, in the Archipelago of Juan Fernandez, 700 kilometers off the country's coast. [...] She ran 400 meters from her home to the town square to sound the alarm bell and woke 700 inhabitants up from their sleep.
Comment: I suppose the moral of the tale is that no matter what the situation, there are always some people with observational and assessment skills that can make a difference.
Rare self-rolling giant snow balls found in UK
The Telegraph, 8th January 2010
They may look like winter's answer to crop circles, but these mysterious snow rolls are in fact a rare natural phenomenon usually found only in the world's most remote and frozen regions.
Also known as snowrollers, snow bales and snow doughnuts, they form mostly in unusual conditions created by a precise combination of snow, ice, wind, temperature and moisture on the prairies of North America. But this week's frozen weather has allowed the snow cylinders to make a freak appearance in the UK. [...]
Liz Bentley, of the Royal Meteorological Society, said despite their rarity in the UK, there is a chance of more snow rolls appearing over the next few days.
Comment: I imagine this is one of the many natural phenomena surprises that the Brititsh are experiencing at the moment.... More icy surprises, Mysterious giant ice balls discovered on Swedish coastline
Extreme balance artist pictured in handstand over precipice
The Telegraph, 6th January 2010
Perched in a handstand atop a stack of chairs on the edge of a precipice, extreme artist Eskil Ronningsbakken's life hangs in the balance.
Positioned on the edge of the Flydalsjuvet cliff in Geiranger, Norway, any mistake by the self-styled "educated balancing performer" could result in a 304 metre fall.
But the 30-year-old Norwegian, resplendent in a gold leotard and head brace, is no stranger to his unusual situation, having already completed the same feat last summer.
Comment: This guy is awesome! Yet, I don't think many realise why he is attempting to focus attention on BALANCE, despite the fact the world's electromagnetic environment is in complete chaos. Due to the dramatic increase of evolutionary energies being stored on this planet FACT, environmental signals that we use to balance our brains are now being boosted to multiples of their previous levels, FACT and people can become much more easily mentally unbalanced [unhinged] in these conditions, FACT.
Stabbed man orders coffee
Ananova News, 23rd December 2009
A US man walked into a restaurant with a 5ins knife sticking in his chest and ordered a coffee. The 52-year-old told staff in the diner in Warren, Michigan, that he was waiting for an ambulance. Restaurant employee George Mirdita said: "It was like out of a movie. It kind of freaked us all out here. [...]
Police said the man called 911 saying he had been stabbed - and then walked a mile to the restaurant. He told officers he was stabbed after he refused to hand over money to a mugger. The man was treated and police said he is expected to be fine. They are still looking for his attacker.
Comment: Is this a new phenomenon? Remember the woman who got shot in the head and when the police arrived, she offered them a cup of team! Are people starting to manifest new powers? We will have to see....
Kansas dad somehow lifts car off 6-year-old girl
Sun Journal, 18th December 2009
OTTAWA, Kan. (AP) -- A Kansas mother is praising a neighbor as "Superman" after her 6-year-old daughter told her he somehow found the strength to lift a car off her. The girl escaped with minor injuries after she and neighbor Nick Harris said she was pinned under the vehicle.
"He really is Superman," Kristen Hough, the child's mother, said Friday of Harris, the man she said saved her daughter, Ashlyn. Harris, 32, said he doesn't know how he managed to lift the Mercury sedan off the child. The 5-foot-7, 185-pound Harris said he tried later that day to lift other cars and couldn't.
"But somehow, adrenaline, hand of God, whatever you want to call it, I don't know how I did it," he said. Harris was dropping off his 8-year-old daughter at school last week when he saw a driver backing her car out of a driveway and over the child, Harris said.
Comment: A car fell on top of my father, when the jack slipped and he was working underneath. He says that he was so frightened, that he just literally pushed the car off him. He now states that he was like the Incredible Hulk. I think that in an emergency situation, people 'forget' that what they want to do is something impossible and do it anyway. Somehow, the fear of not being able to do something somehow does not have time to come into play. There are many examples of similar feats and it has been the subject of scientific study.
Leonardo DaVinci The Voynich Manuscript
Edith Sherwood, December 2009
Wilfred M. Voynich purchased the Voynich Manuscript from a Jesuit Monastery in Northern Italy in 1912. It is currently in the Beinecke Rare Book Library of Yale University.
This Manuscript was made from soft light brown vellum and is considered to be approximately 500 years old. It consists of about 200 pages made up of drawings of plants, astronomical and astrological pictures and biological drawings that appear related to the human reproductive process.
The text is in a cipher that has puzzled scholars and cryptographers for nearly a century. Although I have not been able to decipher more than a few words of this strange document, I think that the following observation relating to its authorship may aid others in reading it.
Comment: According to Slashdot: "The Voynich Manuscript has confounded attempts to decode it for nearly 100 years. A person named Edith Sherwood, who has previously suggested a possible link to DaVinci, has a new idea: perhaps the text is simply anagrams of Italian words. There are three pages of examples from the herb section of the book, showing the original text, the plaintext Italian words, and the English equivalents. Has someone cracked the code?"
Scientist: Angels can't fly
UPI - Daily Briefing, 23th December 2009
LONDON, Dec. 22 (UPI) -- A London scientist has authored a paper arguing angels as classically depicted, mostly-human forms with wings, would be unable to fly.
Professor Roger Wotton of University College London wrote in his paper, which was published by the school's Opticon magazine, that human-appearing angels with feathered bird-like wings would not be able to use the wings for flight, The Daily Telegraph reported Tuesday.
"Even a cursory examination of the evidence in representational arts shows that angels and cherubs cannot take off and cannot use powered flight," Wotton wrote. "And even if they used gliding flight, they would need to be exposed to very high wind velocities at take off -- such high winds that they would be blown away and have no need for wings."
Wotton's paper also took aim at fantasy depictions of fairies with the wings of butterflies. "The distortion of the thorax needed for flight in fairies with butterfly wings would be exceedingly uncomfortable," the paper read. "For sure, fairies don't fly."
Comment: Now, believe it or not this covers an extremely controversial area of physics and it is related to magnetism and the possibility of the existence of matterless mass. If you go down the route of "accepted" physics, then you will be stuck up blind alley with nowhere to go. However, if you veer off the straight and narrow then there are people who have spent their lives studying magnetism and have worked this out. Now, in terms of the reality of angels and fairies etc, simply think of plasma entities in their little balls of light and you have nailed it! It's also worth considering that fairies were traditionally huge things that were downgraded by the Catholic Church, they are in a quandary now because the dimensional shift means that people are seeing "fairies" big and small. What's more, if you are new to this website, you may have not seen this angel photo, interesting isn't it?
'Holy cow' born with cross on forehead
Refreshing News, 9th December 2009
A calf has stunned his owners after being born with a white marking on his forehead in the shape of a cross. Moses, a Jersey Holstein calf mix
Moses, who has been hailed as a "holy cow", was born last week at a dairy farm in Sterling, Connecticut, a small rustic town on the Rhode Island border. The mostly brown calf is half Jersey, half Holstein. Local children gave him his Biblical name. His owner, Brad Davis, told WFSB-TV he thought the marking may be a message from above, though he is still trying to worl out what that message might be.
Comment: LOL!! At the moment there are all sorts of strange "signs", but this one made me laugh.
Japanese FeeJee Mermaids - Part I
Cryptomundo, 21st November 2009
Mermaids. The word conjures up images of magical half human, half fish beings with beautiful maiden bodies atop elegant fish tails. These types of beings have been common fixtures in much folklore, myth, and legend around the world. Sailors from every corner of the Earth have long reported seeing and being enchanted by these enigmatic creatures in the waters of the far flung corners of the Earth.
Comment: This is an excellent article on Japanese mermaids with some great illustrations and some apparently 'fake' photos is worth highlighting especially when we have had some intriging recent sightings in Israel. Also, I have not forgotten the Monsterwatch so here is a link to the latest mystery: Mysterious Sea Creature Spotted in Madeira Beach Canal
Getting to the root of the matter
Ananova News, 6th November 2009
Baffled scientists are trying to get to the root of this astonishing plant dug out of the ground by a Chinese farmer. The two foot tall root weighs in at a massive 12 lbs and bears an amazing resemblance to a boy in even the smallest detail.
The root comes from the Chinese knotweed plant, used by local healers as a natural laxative. Farmer Zheng Dexun, 63, of Datianba, in southern China, said: "I was shocked that it was so large and is so clearly like a boy. "It's bigger than my grandson. Scientists are looking at it now and will tell me how it came to be like this."
Comment: LOL! Well, this story is from China, where there seems to be no end to the bizarreness that is occuring there!
Thousands await Knock's new Virgin Mary vision
Pilgrims have travelled to a rain-soaked corner of western Ireland hoping to witness a miracle
The Guardian, 1st November 2009
"They came from Wexford, Manchester and even India, driven on by the hope that in this rain-soaked corner of western Ireland the mother of God would appear to them this weekend. All along Knock's main street the pilgrims slept in vans and motor homes, all hoping to book a space near the site where a Dublin-based spiritual healer predicted the Virgin Mary would materialise. Joe Coleman's visions of a Marian apparition on the exact spot where villagers claimed they saw the Virgin Mary in 1879 have created a fervour across the Catholic world.
Coleman complained that the Catholic church had not made a priest available to recite the Rosary with him and the thousands gathered in waiting. Describing himself as "a visionary of our Blessed Mother", he said the visitation would only be visible "to people who come with an open heart".
With up to 10,000 pilgrims descending on the village, Coleman's promise that Christ's mother would appear through a "dancing sun" in the sky has at least given Knock's economy an unexpected boost."
Comment: Well, Virgin Mary apparitions are a true mystery. The one thing that I will note, is the insistence that she would appear through a "dancing sun", I think that this is a reference to a similar arrival to the 1916 Fatima apparitions. What is of great interest here, is that in the book Earth Under Fire by astrophysicist Dr Paul LaViolette, he believes that The Fatima Prophecy is a warning of an extreme Space Weather event based on a re-channelled version of this message, after the Catholic hierarchy refused to release the complete details of the original messages.
Well, I will say now that things have changed since the 1916 warnings and the Earth's electromagnetic grid has been fixed up, so if anything is coming, I don't think that we will get complete devastation, we will not end up with "a burnt out world". Yet, in the light of what we know is going on in our solar system right now, the re-channelled version is still very interesting.... Anyway, it would be great to get some decent up to date info from Knock!
Grotto statue took on human form and wept, say witnesses
Clerical Whispers, 3rd October 2009
"VISITORS to a remote grotto have claimed a statue wept and crosses appeared and disappeared in the night sky this week.
A group of 14 people, who had gathered at the statue of the Virgin Mary, in a rocky outcrop near the town of Dungloe, Co Donegal, on Tuesday night, were transfixed as they watched the phenomenon, which they said lasted almost an hour.
"It was a crazy evening. It was absolutely amazing. I am still on an emotional high. All but one person seemed to see the same thing," recalled James Boyle, from Ardara, who was at the site with his wife Margaret and children, Martin (10) and Mary (11). The Kerrytown shrine is visited by thousands of pilgrims annually, after first becoming the subject of a religious apparition 70 years ago."
Comment: Christians believe that in the 'End Times' there will be 'signs and wonders', I think this qualifies....Well, the Catholic Church are trying to stop people reporting Virgin Mary aparitions, so this incident will be greeted with total dismay.
Hellish hairy sea monster cast ashore
Pravda, October 2009
Image 1: A strange ugly sea monster was cast ashore in Guinea.
Image 2: The partially decomposed monster has 4 paws, a tail and long fur
Image 3: The scientists who examined the creature said that they had already seen such animals before, but they have no clue to their definition.
Image 4: No text
Image 5: No text
Comment: There is no article here and it was given a Digg on 24th March 2008. It is just five images with some accompanying text. Please note that these "sea monsters" have been seen in Guinea before and reminds me of creatures described in Trevor James Constables books and that referenced in the book by Ivan Sanderson  Uninvited Visitors. What is odd is that there have been many reports of strange creatures being washed up, but nobody seems interested in identifying these creatures. The following extract is taken from the MUFON website entitled Researching the UFO Phenomena Using Multidisciplines and it is well worth reading the whole section. We find that:
"Constable relates a story from Australia investigated initially in 1962 by biologist Ivan Sanderson. Sanderson traveled the world looking for evidence for visitation from space. He relates an instance in his book Uninvited Visitors of an enormous object described as similar to Wood's that had washed ashore in southwestern Tasmania. Accompanied by a government zoologist he intended to get samples of the objects flesh. They were unable to do so because they could not even cut the thing with an ax and there were no signs of decay. Following their attempt the Australian government placed the location off limits to everyone. Noted in the account is that others had the same problem with the object. There are numerous other similar reports to this one in this region of Australia but secrecy has surrounded these occurrences since."These days we have the internet, so it is virtually impossible to cover up all the anomalies that provide us with the true picture of our reality. However, with these objects, we need someone to swing and axe and report what happens.
Goat gives birth to a 'human'; a faun
Refreshing News, 28th September 2009
THE community of Lower Gweru and its surroundings in the Midlands Province was left shell-shocked when a goat gave birth to human-like creature that had the combined features of a man and a goat. A report in The Chronicle newspaper said the goat gave birth to the 'creature' on Sunday morning in Maboleni area. The creature had a human head, face, nose, shoulders and human-like skin that had very scanty furs. It had goat features from the “shoulders” to the legs." [...]
The owner of the goat who gave his name as Mr Nyoni said the incident left him shocked and he decided to contact the police and the local leadership. “It’s the first time that my goat did this. I have 15 goats and it’s this goat that gave me birth to most of them. My goats often give birth to sets of twins,” he said
Comment: This story has been circulating the internet since the beginning of the month. Well, there has been the obvious accusations, but since we are at a time of evolutionary change which is being generated by EM environmental chaos, maybe this story should be examined. Since, there is associated mythology of the faun – part human and part goat, this could represent the messenging in DNA, accessing some old template in what our scientists use to call the junk DNA. Many writers over the last few decades have speculated that the evolution of humans has too many glaring inconsistencies with evolutionary theory to ignore the idea that human development has not 'benefited' from 'outside' interference. The abundant mythology of creatures with part human characteristics seems to suggest that experimentation was extensive, yet, there are also the 'gods' of Egypt that were depicted with animal heads. Maybe the governor is right and monitoring the cause of these kind of cases may be too difficult without rigorous scientitific scrutiny.
Shiloh Pepin: The Mermaid Girl
AOL Health, 26th September 2009
"Shortly after her birth, Shiloh Pepin was given 72 hours to live. Now 10-years-old, Shiloh has made beating the odds and baffling the medical community a way of life. Born with a rare birth defect called sirenomelia, also known as mermaid syndrome, she is one of less than a handful of children known in the world known to be living with this usually fatal disorder.
“Sirenomelia is a congenital birth defect in which infants are born with a single lower extremity or with their legs fused together, giving the appearance of a mermaid,” says Warren G. Sanger, Ph.D., FACMG, Professor of Pediatrics and Pathology, and Director of the Human Genetics Laboratory and Clinical Genetics, at the Munroe-Meyer Institute. There also are severe abnormalities of the bladder and kidney.
Comment: The video here is quite interesting, especially if you have never seen a 'real' mermaid before! Well, there is a strong link with mythology and therefore we have to wonder about whether rare sightings are interdimendsional, especially after the recent story of a mermaid drawing crowds in Israel. It is interesting to note the statistic that 1 in 60,000 births has this syndrome and the question has to be asked: is this really just a birth defect, or a template hidden within our junk DNA that occasionally manifests?
New Irish Lake Monster Video
Cryptomundo, 26th September 2009
"On Thursday, September 17, 2009, individuals associated with the Centre for Fortean Zoology, including Jon and Corinna Downes, Tony “Doc” Shiels, and allegedly holding the camera, 19-year-old Max Blake, were above Lady’s View in County Kerry, Eire, viewing and filming the water below. The spot they were at overlooks the three lakes of Killarney. On the upper lake, they report obtaining some images of anomalous objects that appear to be animate."
Comment: What amazes me is that there seems to be quite a few folk out monster watching! This is not the original commentary on this video [08:42] because we are told it was full of swearing as these monster watchers were in utter amazement at what they were seeing, hence the commentary was re-done by Jon Downes, who reminds me of an old fashion BBC reporter. I can't say I was that impressed, but the point was made that the party was up high above the lake, a quarter of a mile away to get a good perspective. The presence of Tony “Doc” Shiels is mentioned on the video and in this article at Cryptomundo, who seems to have created quite a reputation in his past, so this may effect the credibility of the report and there seems to be a hint that his presence may have caused this manifestation. Whatever you think, there are many websites that are monitoring paranormal activity and realise that the 'veil is lifting', but it's not so obvious what the pandora's box of entities that will manifest in our reality will look like. Curiously, I think we have have had many glimpses in the past and so we do have sightings that stretch back into older times. The only difference now is that what was held in other dimensions will become commonplace and the world will not be able to ignore the inevitable conclusions. update This story hit the mainstream press, even if it is somewhat exaggerated, see Mysterious shape that looks a loch like Nessie
Metal detector enthusiast unearths huge hoard of Anglo-Saxon gold
The Times Online, 24th September 2009
"The largest hoard of Anglo-Saxon gold ever found has been unearthed on farmland in Staffordshire by a metal detector enthusiast, archaeologists revealed today.
Terry Herbert, 55, from Burntwood, came across the huge treasure estimated to be worth more than £1 million as he searched a field near his home. The exact location of the discovery has not been disclosed but it is understood to be near the Lichfield border in South Staffordshire, in what was once the independent Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia. Experts said that the collection of more than 1,500 military artefacts, including helmet, sword pommel and sword hilt ornaments possibly looted on the field of battle 1,400 years by a victorious warlord, may have belonged to Saxon royalty. The hoard contains around 5kg of gold and 2.5kg of silver, far bigger than previous finds such as the Snettisham hoards. Some of it was lying in the open on top of the ploughed field." [...]
"The quality and quantity is something I haven’t come across and I don’t think any archaeologist in this country has. It is out of this world. It is going to be the basis of research for the next 20 years."
Comment: Its the discussion that one major discovery of treasure will change keep academics busy debating for 20 years that I find quite amazing. Leslie Webster, former Keeper of Prehistory and Europe at the British Museum describes this discovery as: "it will make historians and literary scholars review what their sources tell us, and archaeologists and art-historians rethink the chronology of metalwork and manuscripts; and it will make us all think again about rising (and failing) kingdoms and the expression of regional identities in this period, the complicated transition from paganism to Christianity, the conduct of battle and the nature of fine metalwork production - to name only a few of the many huge issues it raises." Hmmm....

Update Hmmm.... Some mantra....
THE change of a single word in the mantra of Terry Herbert brought him a treasure that has been described as the equivalent of Tutankhamen's tomb. When going out with his metal detector the unemployed 55-year-old usually says:
"Spirits of yesteryear take me where the coins appear." On that fortunate day in July when he uncovered what was to become the largest hoard of Anglo-Saxon treasure ever discovered he changed the word "coins" to "gold". "I don't know why I said it that day, but I think somebody was listening and directed me to it," he said yesterday.
A member of the Bloxwich Research and Metal Detecting Club, Mr Herbert will now enjoy the last laugh on those who frequently mock him and his endeavours by shouting: "Beep beep, he's after pennies." King's lost treasure unearthed by metal detector worth £2.50
This will make your eyes water: Indonesian woman gives birth to 19.2lb baby boy
Daily Mail, 24th September 2009
"Dwarfing the infant next to him, his mouth open in an angry roar, this is the heaviest newborn ever recorded in Indonesia. An Indonesian woman named only as Ani gave birth to the 19.2lb baby boy in Medan, North Sumatra yesterday. She named him Muhammad Akbar Risuddin after the local district chief. 'Akbar' means 'big' in Indonesian.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, he was delivered by Caesarean section. Britain's heaviest newborn was delivered in Cumbria in 1992 weighing 15lb 8oz. The heaviest baby ever born was produced by Anna Bates of Canada in 1879, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. It weighed 23.12lb and died 11 hours after birth. The record for a baby which survived, according to the Guinness record keepers, is held by a boy born weighing 22lb 8oz at Aversa, Italy in 1955."
Comment: Ouch! Is this the birth of a giant? For update, see, Giant baby draws spectators to Indonesian hospital
Mythical beast is ‘spotted’ in Windermere [UK]
NW Evening Mail, 23rd September 2009
"TALES of a mythical creature rumoured to be lurking in the depths of South Lakeland waters have been causing a stir. The so-called “Bownessie” is fast becoming part of modern Lake District folklore, as reported sightings of the fabled creature continue to be made.
Footage that some people believe appears to show the creature causing ripples in the surface of Windermere was shot by Lakes TV cameraman John McKeown on Saturday. It has since appeared on Sky News on Sunday evening and American TV network giant CBS is also interested in the story. People in Windermere are not convinced Bownessie actually exists."
Comment: Obviously, this kind of story is a brilliant way to drum up tourism but, after quite a few recent reports occuring elsewhere, its interesting to monitor the situation. See also,

New 'Montauk Monster' spotted in Panama
A mystery creature reportedly beaten to death by a group of teenagers in Panama is the subject of much speculation on the web.
The Telegraph, 17th September 2009
"The beast's hairless, rubbery body and revolting features have drawn comparisons with the Montauk Monster, the still-unidentified animal photographed on a New York beach last year. According to reports in Panama, the teenagers spotted the creature crawling out of a cave while playing in the town of Cerro Azul north of Panama City.
Fearing for the safety as it moved towards them, the youths claim they attacked the beast with sticks before throwing its lifeless body into a pool of water. They returned later to take pictures of the corpse which were then posted on the website of the Central American country's Telemetro television station.
Comment: Another monster? Tut, the kids these days, instead of going to the authorities and making it easy to cover up this sighting, they decide to post photos on the internet instead for public consumption... More photos here. Inexplicata are not impressed with a so-called "wildlife expert" and quite drankly, the claws are the give away. Strange Panamanian Creature is a Sloth
Vomiting Patient Baffles Hospitals [China]
Shanghai Daily, 9th September 2009
"Doctors are baffled by a 59-year-old man in northeastern China who keeps vomiting black liquid several times a day. Tan Shengji of Shandong Province started vomiting at the end of last year when he felt sick and depressed, according to his son Tan Aijun quoted in today's Qilu Evening News. Tan has been seeking treatment all over the country for almost 10 months, yet no doctor can diagnose any disease.
Comment: Let's say, I believe that this man's problem is more spiritual than psychological.
Phuket Gazette, 8th September 2009
"PHUKET: A family in Phuket had a close encounter with unidentified falling objects at the weekend when about a hundred small spheres 'dropped from the sky' onto their roof and garden. The family of six said the transparent balls fell on their home in Wichit about 9am on Sunday directly after a rain shower. “After the rain had stopped, we heard the sound of things falling on the roof,” said home owner 52-year-old Paweenarak Boonsiew."
Comment: Well I am still reading The Book of the Damned  by Charles' Hoy Fort and I now understand why people claimed that it is one of the greatest books ever written. However, if you don't want to know about just how mysterious our world really is, then don't bother. However, if you want an historical perspective that does discuss 'fiery balloons' and many other strange oddities that suggest our world is often impinged upon by other worlds, then be prepared for some mind expansion.
Charles Fort's Book of the Damned (1919), New Lands (1923), and Lo! (1931) record many reports of strange "rains" with all sorts of interesting ingredients, including alabaster, ants, ashes, beef, beetle larvae, berries, bitumen, blood, butter, charcoal, china fragments (naturally vitrified?), cinders, coal, cobwebs, coins, crabs, crayfish, eels, fish, flesh, gelatinous matter, grain, hay, ice, iron balls, jelly fish, limestone, lizards, mud, mussels, oyster shells, periwinkles, quartz, resin, salt, sand, sandalwood, seeds, silk, snails, snakes, spawn, spiders, carved and shaped stones, turtles, and of course, toads and frogs. The observation Fort made over and over again was how exactly did these "rains" exclusively deliver just one ingredient, the typical explanation of water spouts and tornadoes are not mechanisms that filter.
Baby born at 9:09 on 9/9/09 weighs 9 lbs, 9 ounces
Associated Press, 10th September 2009
"La Crosse, Wisconcin - No doubt. The nines have it. Chuck Berendes of La Crosse said he will never forget the birthday of this third child, born Wednesday on the ninth day of the nine month in the year 2009. Nor will Berendes and his wife, Polly, forget Henry Michael's arrival time - at 9:09 a.m. by Cesarean section at Franciscan Skemp Medical Center in La Crosse.
But they got the biggest laugh when the newborn was placed on the delivery room scale following his birth. Berendes said it was metric scale so the doctor did the math in his head, but to make sure, he had the nurse also do the conversion. Berendes said they broke into laughter when the nurse told them Henry weighed 9 pounds, 9 ounces."
Comment: I would imagine it would be extremely difficult to 'fix' this birth, but obviously, this baby decided he was going to make a grand entrance into the world!
‘9’: It’s more than a movie, it’s a magic number
Many are celebrating the upcoming calendrical anomaly in different ways
MSNBC News, 8th September 2009
"Have special plans this 09/09/09? Everyone from brides and grooms to movie studio execs are celebrating the upcoming calendrical anomaly in their own way. [...]
Though technically there's nothing special about the symmetrical date, some concerned with the history and meaning of numbers ascribe powerful significance to 09/09/09. For cultures in which the number nine is lucky, Sept. 9 is anticipated – while others might see the date as an ominous warning. Math magic Modern numerologists — who operate outside the realm of real science — believe that mystical significance or vibrations can be assigned to each numeral one through nine, and different combinations of the digits produce tangible results in life depending on their application.
Modern numerologists — who operate outside the realm of real science — believe that mystical significance or vibrations can be assigned to each numeral one through nine, and different combinations of the digits produce tangible results in life depending on their application."
Comment: Since I have quite a few reservations about the merits of the Gregorian calendar, I don't get all excited about these kind of calendrical anomalies, but they seem to be popular in the New Age movement. The article has some interesting facts on numerology and includes Chinese and Japanese supersitions concerning the no. 9.
Dutch museum's moon rock a fake
Totonto Sun, 27th August 2009
"AMSTERDAM — It’s not green cheese, but it might as well be. The Dutch national museum said Thursday that one of its prized possessions, a rock supposedly brought back from the moon by U.S. astronauts, is just a piece of petrified wood. Rijksmuseum spokeswoman Xandra van Gelder, who oversaw the investigation that proved the piece was a fake, said the museum will keep it anyway as a curiosity.
“It’s a good story, with some questions that are still unanswered,” she said. “We can laugh about it.” The museum acquired the rock after the death of former prime minister Willem Dreesman in 1988. Dreesman received it as a private gift on Oct. 9, 1969 from then-U.S. ambassador J. William Middendorf during a visit by the three Apollo 11 astronauts, part of their “Giant Leap” goodwill tour after the first moon landing."
Comment: Whoops! I am not sure it is fair to jump to the obvious conclusion and maybe it was 'swapped' at some stage. It's really hard to see that NASA astronauts would knowingly try to pass of petrified wood as being something from the moon. I mean, it would have been better to at least provide a genuine meteorite that could have been found on the moon as similar samples are hitting our planet every single day,
Crystal Skull Convergence
Reality Sandwich, August 2009
"The World Mysteries Conference in Tempe, Arizona (Sept 8-9) will focus on the great changes predicted for the year 2012 according to Mayan prophecies. The event will feature Mayan elder and solar priest Hunbatz Men and Inca medicine man WACHAN. Also, for the first time ever, there will be a meeting of nine ancient crystal skulls and their keepers. The keepers will discuss what the skulls "have been saying" and you can even sign up to have private meetings with the skulls and their caretakers. "
Comment: This is a New Age conference attended by REAL Mayan and Inca Elders who have retained ancient and secret knowledge passed down from their forefathers. I have great respect for Hunbatz Men after reading his book, Secrets of Mayan Science/Religion. In his book, Hunbatz Men introduces us to Mayan mysticism and his insight allowed me to integrate information from other sources, giving me quite a few ah-ha moments. Since we are in a time of rapid evolutionary change, it is necessary to understand the teaching of those who have reached spiritual heights in the past, as this will help us sort out the wheat from the chaff circulating today as metaphysical teaching.
Bee Celestial Navigation and Non-Human Intelligence
Space.com, 27th August 2009
"Millions of years ago a group of wasps "decided to" become vegetarians and so today we have the bee. Some of their cousins "decided to" quit flying and so became the ants, but that is another story. Although only about 20% of bees are social, honey bees are very social indeed. It has been stated by several biologists that, if it were not for the honey bee pollinating plants, humans would only last 3 or 4 years as our food supply would disappear."
Comment: Do you know that bees have at least three languages? The description of the bee experiment is proof positive of just how intelligent these creatures are. In my opinion, the ability of bees to communicate and the link with SETI (the Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence), as a means of guaging extraterrestrial communications is a stretch and really tenuous. For an update on the illness that has been decimating US honeybees, see Bee calamity clarified
Stadium of light: Dramatic double rainbow illuminates football match
Daily Mail, 27th August 2009
"Nature provided a stunning backdrop to a football match last night in the form a dramatic double rainbow. The colourful bow arched over the Keepmoat Stadium yesterday evening, as players from Doncaster Rovers and Tottenham Hotspurs filed onto the pitch."
Comment: Wonderful, a marketing dream!
Picked out by a Google Earth satellite, is this the Loch Ness monster... or just a boat?
Daily Mail, 26th August 2009
"It promised the world views of the entire planet from their laptop. But could Google Earth have unravelled our favourite mystery of the deep? One internet fan claims he found the legendary Loch Ness monster in satellite images on the virtual globe. Security guard Jason Cooke said the 65ft oblong shape followed by thin strands is actually the highly contested creature supposed to inhabit Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. [...]
The Loch Ness Monster has been a subject of mass intrigue and debate since it came to the world's attention in 1933. Scientists have widely written off the idea as a modern-day myth and continued sightings as set ups and wishful thinking. Yet it has remained a contested phenomenon for almost 80 years."
Comment: Well, this is going to be fun as the dimensional shift continues! Well, if Nessy is an interdimensional being, then we can expect many more sightings in the future. Of course, Nessy is only one entity in an ocean of multi-dimensional creatures that are becoming visible. We are still in 2009 and the dimensional shift is still accelerating, so one can still only speculate about how interesting our reality will get and how the unprepared general public will react. Please note, according to James Trevor Constable, interdimentionsl creatures have been seen in our dimension when they have dropped their vibration for whatever reason, but he also noted that even in 1976, after more than two decades of research, that it was getting easier and easier to see these creatures and so one must surmise that the dimensional shift has been taking place very slowly for more than fifty years and coincides with other markers that are related to galactic influences.
Ireland’s new blasphemy law labeled return to Middle Ages
National Post, 23rd August 2009
"DUBLIN -- The Irish government plans to bring into force a new law in October that critics say is a return to medieval justice.
The legislation, aimed at providing judges with clear direction on the 1937 Constitution's blasphemy prohibition, imposes a fine of up to 25,000 euros -- about $39,000 -- for anyone who "publishes or utters matter that is [intentionally meant to be] grossly abusive or insulting in relation to matters held sacred by any religion, thereby causing outrage among a substantial number of the adherents of that religion."
Police with a search warrant will be able to enter private premises and use "reasonable force" to obtain incriminating evidence. The initiative has stunned some Irish and international commentators who say it contradicts Ireland's recent emergence as a more multicultural, tech-savvy country that has in recent years showed its independence from the Roman Catholic church by liberalizing its divorce law.
"It is a wretched, backward, uncivilized regression to the Middle Ages," said prominent atheist author Richard Dawkins in a statement last month, arguing that the law risks shattering Ireland's new image as a "modern, civilized . . . green and pleasant silicon valley."
Comment: I think Mrs Doyle from the comedy hit Father Ted just about sums up this backward step.
UFO mysteries: Bizarre 'giant creature' spotted on the Moon
The Examiner, 20th August 2009
"UFO fan and reader using Goggle Moon to explore the Appenine Mountains Lunar region, the landing site of the Apollo 15 mission, noticed what looks like a giant creature roaming the surface of the moon (Above) near Hadley Rille. The co-ordinates are 25°58°01.89"N 3°31°03.19"E. He is curious if anyone has any ideas what this object is."
Comment: Bizarro world! Well, the dimensional shift applies to the whole of our solar system and the strange image captured on Google Moon appears to be telling us that the moon is also inhabited by interdimensional beings. Well, we have already been warned by crop circles and metaphysical sources to expect that our reality to get bizarre from our perspective, see Crop Circle archives, so this means that predictions made in 1999 in print, by a metaphysical source respected worldwide, are now in play. Mankind has changed it's destiny and most old predictions are no longer valid, so we can only monitor what is happening to see which predictions are coming true. Thus, it seems the dimensional shift will eventually force an "official" acknowledgement that other lifeforms exist. Since, it is well understood that most ufologists are only interested in 'craft' and have ignored investigators who have come to other conclusions, the situation is now incredible.
Tunisian woman expecting 12 babies
The Guardian, 18th August 2009
"A Tunisian woman in her 30s is expecting 12 babies in what her family described as an amazing miracle, but doctors have warned there is only a tiny chance that any of them will survive. The unnamed woman, an Arabic language teacher who has had two miscarriages since her marriage to a colleague in 2007, said that she was feeling fine and looking forward to hugging her six boys and six girls. [...]
Fertility experts warned of the high risks, however, with the possibility that the strain of carrying so many babies could lead to her going into labour after just 20 weeks, around halfway through a normal pregnancy and four weeks less than the UK's legal limit for abortion.
"I don't like to dampen her enthusiasm, but the chances are she will deliver at 20 weeks. I wouldn't even give her a one in 100 chance of even one surviving. It's frightening," Peter Bowen-Simpkins, a fellow at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists told the Daily Mail."
Comment: Ouch! 12! There is no mention of in vitro fertilisation so we have to assume that this was Mother Nature in overdrive.... Update Tut, tut! I would have thought The UK Guardian would have checked out this story first but the Daily Mail are less convinced.... Teacher who claimed she was pregnant with 12 babies is exposed as a fraud
Mermaid Sightings Claimed in Israel
Refreshing News, 14th August 2009
"Locals and tourists in the Israeli town of Kiryat Yam have been flocking to the coast in hopes of glimpsing a creature that most people believe only exist in fairy tales. An alleged mermaid, said to resemble a cross between a fish and a young girl, only appears at sunset.
It performs a few tricks for onlookers before disappearing for the night. One of the first people to see the mermaid, Shlomo Cohen, said, "I was with friends when suddenly we saw a woman laying on the sand in a weird way. At first I thought she was just another sunbather, but when we approached she jumped into the water and disappeared. We were all in shock because we saw she had a tail." The sightings apparently began several months ago."
Comment: This is also being reported in the Israel National News, see "Mermaid" Spotted on Kiryat Yam Beach. I like the comment here, "There's just something fishy about this whole thing!" LOL! Well, the prophecies of the veil lifting are proving to be accurate as our local spacetime continues to morph and what has been generally "hidden" is now becoming commonplace. Yet, it seems that nobody dared to speculate about what Joe Average will discover in terms of interdimensional life, so warnings that our reality will become quite bizzare, don't seem to have been taken very seriously, but it's happening anyway. Who knows, the mermaid could be a thoughtform, it would be interesting if someone manages to capture an image....
Gushan mysterious flying objects (Photo) [China]
163 News, 4th August 2009
The original Google translation: here. My interpretation of about half the article is as follows:
Are these UFO photos or something else? Readers, is this just another day in Gushan? You can log into East Express Network (www.dnkb.com.cn) to download the image analysis or call via our hotline 0591-87806110 to express your views. During the taking of landscape photos of a home in Gushan, photos were taken of a UFO that looked like a rock floating in the air!
When this photo was viewed, it was a pleasant surprise for Gang Hao, who is a member of the ground-based meteorological observation Fuzhou weather observer group. Gang Hao said that the photos were taken at 15:34 on July 19, in the Gushan Valley. On the day, that he and his family accidentally shot this strange flying objects, it was not seen at the time and it was only found two days later, when he was organizing his photos on his computer, where he zoomed into the picture.
The camera was a normal Canon SX110IS and the photo had not undergone any post-processing. Based on an analysis of the photos, the clouds were low in the sky at about 1300 meters and were broken cumulus clouds, this observation agrees with that recorded by the Weather Bureau, therefore if the weather was sunny, with high visibility, the photographs would be clearer. Gang Hao said that two-thirds of the photos were trees and mountains, and the remaining third was the sky, the trees in the photos the central junction of smoke and the sky a UFO, submitted under the small cone large column, looks like stone.[The last part of the sentence is gibberish.]
Comment: Well, this story goes on to tell us that a Chinese skeptic thought this was a Chinese lantern made to look like a rock, which just goes to show that the belief that anything strange in the sky can be dismissed as a lantern is pervasive! Personally, I think it's a rock that is levitating, maybe due to a 'gravity' anomaly but who knows.....
Bat-killing disease remains a mystery
USA Today, 14th July 2009
"NASHVILLE — Cory Holliday tugged a white paper suit over his boots and clothes, zipping the front high onto his neck. Amid poison ivy and wild grape vines, he aimed a video camera toward a dark, steel-gated opening in a limestone precipice, reached by canoe on Old Hickory Lake in Wilson County. As the sunset advanced, he awaited his quarry: thousands of endangered gray bats.
The Nature Conservancy cave expert is taking part in a multiagency effort to monitor and protect bats from a scourge known as "white-nose syndrome." The mystery illness has been responsible for widespread deaths in hibernating bat colonies in the Northeast and has now moved south. "This winter if we get it, bats will be coming out and dying in large numbers," Holliday said. [...]
"Their benefit to us is unseen, but it's so real. We think mosquito populations are bad now. We ain't seen nothing until we lose all these bats," said Gina Hancock, of the Nature Conservancy in Nashville. In Tennessee, a single cave can hold 100,000 bats, according to Holliday. "The loss of 500,000 bats means 2.4 million pounds of bugs aren't eaten in a year," said Richard Kirk of the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency."
Comment: We live in a finely balanced eco-system and even though most people are not interested in bats, they would become very interested if mosquitoes make life unbearable.
Boy, 13 'beaten up by ghost'
Hartlepool Mail, 9th July 2009
"A priest has been called in by a distraught mum after her teenage son told her he had been attacked by a ghost in the family home. Terrified mum Beverley Wilkins turned to the church after son Daniel was left bruised and bewildered by what his family say could only have been a ghost or poltergeist. The 13-year-old had finished school and was alone in their home in York Road, Hartlepool, when he claims he was suddenly pulled upright, dragged across the living room, taken to the front door and thrown out into the street."
Comment: This incident is far removed from the usual ghost story where it seems that what is being seen is residual energy that plays like a movie, over and over again. This encounter suggests a poltergeist, something far more serious.
World's oldest Bible published in full online
The world's oldest surviving Bible, which has been scattered around the globe for more than a century, has been published in full online.
The Telegraph, 6th July 2009
"This 1,600-year old manuscript offers a window into the development of early Christianity and first-hand evidence of how the text of the Bible was transmitted from generation to generation.
The project has uncovered evidence that a fourth scribe – along with the three already recognised – worked on the text; the availability of the virtual manuscript for study by scholars around the world creates opportunities for collaborative research that would not have been possible just a few years ago."
Comment: This is is a fantastic achievement and I am sure it will generate lots of interest as the search for truth concerning the origins of Christianity intensify. References: The Codex Sinaiticus Website & Codex Sinaiticus Manscript Fragments Online
Ancient Chinese Medical Book Discovered
The Epoch Times, 10th June 2009
"An ancient medical book on acupoint treatment was recently uncovered in China. The book, written 2,000 years ago by the miraculous healer Hua Tuo, has been passed down in the Hua family, according to Hua Tuo’s 62nd generation descendent Hua Quanbing.
Recorded in the book are acupuncture points therapies and other medical remedies for bone and joint injuries and diseases. The remedies are based on the traditional theories of yin-yang and five elements, reflecting the traditional Chinese concepts that emphasize the unification and harmony between mind and body."
Comment: Well, Hua Quanbing can be commended for recognising the true value was in using the information to help people, rather than taking the money.... I note he is a graduate from Yale University and he obviously has high spiritual intelligence, enough said....
Sky rains tadpoles in Japan
Ananova News, 10th June 2009
copy: "Residents and scientists in Japan have been baffled after it started raining tadpoles. Clouds of dead tadpoles appear to have fallen from the sky in a number of cities in Ishikawa Prefecture since the start of the month, reports the Daily Telegraph.
In one incident, a 55-year-old man who was caught in a tadpole downpour described hearing a strange sound in the city of Nanao. Upon further exploration, he found more than 100 dead tadpoles covering the windscreens of cars in a civic centre car park. Dead tadpole downpours were also reported by local officials 48 hours later in the city of Hakusan.
The raining down of small creatures such as frogs and fish is a rare meteorological phenomenon that is reported from time to time across the world.
Scientists have widely attributed the surreal raining of animals to strong winds, storms and water sprouts sucking up creatures before depositing them further inland. However, this explanation has not satisfied meteorologists in the Ishikawa region. Officials at Kanazawa Local Meteorological Observatory told local media that they were unsure how the tadpoles had arrived as there had been no reports of strong winds."
Comment: The official explanation of water spouts and strong winds is acceptable but when there are no reports of strong winds then there is a case for more 'exotic' hyperdimensional explanations.
Colour changing frog worshipped as god in India
The Telegraph, 8th June 2009
Copy: "The creature was discovered in a flower bed and now draws hundreds of followers to the home where it is kept in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala. Now one of India's top zoologists has decided he will study the unusual creature – provided it can be kept alive.
Reji Kumar, 35, a lift worker, said he is doing its best but the frog has lost its appetite. "My one problem is that this frog does not appear to eat. I keep trying to feed it but it doesn't eat anything. I don't know what else to give it," he said. He said the frog was white when he first spotted it but it soon changed to yellow and then grey by the time he got it home.
"By night the frog was dark yellow, and then it became transparent so you could see its internal organs," he said. "It seemed like a miracle to me that this frog had so many different coats. So now people come to see him and pray to him." Professor Oommen V. Oommen from India's Kerala University, said animals changing colour was not unusual in itself. "Frogs do change colour to scare away predators," he told the Sun newspaper. "But from what I have heard, the frog at Kumar's place changes colour so frequently it is a bit unusual. I will collect it for study."
When bees go buzz-erk! As British tourists are attacked by an angry swarm, what turns a humble honey bee into a killer?
Daily Mail, 20th May 2009
" ...dozens of people have been hurt - some badly enough to be hospitalised - by hundreds of angry bees in one of the sleepiest corners of France seems more like the plot of a bad Seventies horror film than real life. On Sunday, a swarm of bees invaded an art gallery in an old pigeon loft in Moulidars, near the town of Cognac in the Charente region. The gallery was full of tourists, who described scenes of sheer terror when the bees attacked.
Beekeepers know that individual swarms not only have their own group ' personalities' - some are more aggressive than others, for example - but also that they can behave differently depending on the weather. Hot and humid conditions often make bees bad tempered, while mild and sunny weather tends to encourage calm behaviour." [...] It is also possible that the bees were simply under the weather.
Comment: Bees under the weather! It would seem that the reference to the weather is a link to the electromagnetic conditions that control weather. It is a scientific fact that humans suffer biological effects due to very low (radio) frequency (VLF)-atmospherics or VLF-sferics which occur when lightning generates a variety of signals in the (VLF) range (1-100 kHz). Correlation studies show that weather sensitive individuals are prone to a whole host of induced symptoms. including an increase in pain intensity from brain injuries, damaged tissue (operation wounds, scars), or internal illnesses (asthma, angina pectoris, migraine) and rheumatism. Spectral maxima at 6, 8, 10, 12, and 28 kHz are associated with the occurrence of epileptic seizures, sudden deafness, and myocardial infarctions (heart attacks). So if humans are sensitive, we can be assured that other creatures are sensitive too.
Astounding new Marine Lightwheel Sighting by US Navy Ship in the Arabian Gulf
Cropcircleanswers.com, May 2009
"On the morning of April 12, 2009 I received the following email from the Commander of a US Warship currently on deployment in the Arabian Gulf (also known as the Persian Gulf).
I am the Commanding Officer of a US Navy Ship currently deployed in the Arabian Gulf. On the 11th of April, 2009, we witnessed the Lightwheel phenomena. It was incredible!!
The Executive Officer of the USS Milius wrote the following description to his family:
“Last night the ship passed through a bizarre natural phenomenon. Don’t know what it was and have never read about anything like it.
There was energy hovering and spinning just above the water. It was pulsating. A little like glowing mist but it spun and moved faster than the waves and made circles and other patterns. It sped out as far as you could see and lasted over 20 minutes. Like the northern lights but on the surface of the water and not in the sky.
There was also lightning in the air and tons of florescent plankton in the water and maybe that had something to do with it but not really sure. It was definitely something like St. Elmo’s Fire or Ball Lightning and I suspect I will never see it again.”
Comment: Absolutely fantastic! It's a great time to be on the planet! We have a brilliant modern-day account of a rare electromagnetic phenomenon that has been compared to the crop circle phenomenon, so are we likely to get more reports of this natural occurence as cosmic energies stream onto the planet? Please note the title description and image here are only how this phenomena has been described in the past. In fact here, this extensive modern day account given by various members of the ship's crew state: "Outward expanding circles, inward imploding circles, waves, moving snakes and boomerangs!" and "the spirals began. It wasn’t as if something was producing the light at the center and it was following the spiral by growing. More like if you had a giant light that had a spiral cutout blocking part of it and then rotated it. Like something that belonged on a dance floor. The centers of these spirals passed directly down our ships beam. You could pinpoint the exact center. I couldn’t believe or begin to explain what I was seeing." It must have been quite a light show!
Ghostly museum image caught on film
AP News, 18th May 2009
"A ghostly image has been snapped at a museum prompting speculation that the spirit of the English scientist Edward Jenner could be haunting his former home. A photograph seems to have captured a hazy image of a man sitting on a chair in the attic of the Edward Jenner Museum in Berkeley, Gloucestershire. The picture was taken by BBC photographer Chris Sandys, who said: "I don't believe in ghosts myself, but this is strange."
Comment: Another distinguished ghost, caught in the act of haunting. Note there are other links here of other ghost sightings which will of course become extremely common as the veil lifts and the odd remnants of 'stuck' energy that need cleaning up are revealed.
Woman makes cup of tea after being shot in head
The Telegraph,19th April 2009
"Police and doctors hailed the survival of Tammy Sexton, 47, as miraculous after a bullet from a .38-calibre handgun struck her squarely in the forehead, passed through her skull and exited through the back of her head. She is expected to make a full recovery, while her husband shot himself dead after the attack on his wife. But law enforcement officers in Jackson County, Mississippi, were also astonished that Mrs Sexton offered them tea when they arrived at her home after the shooting."
Comment: Obviously, this woman is the representation of the 'Divine Mother', as she can get shot in the head and still offer a cup of tea! LOL!
The amazing self-rolling 'snow bales' that show Mother Nature also likes to play
Daily Mail, 18th April 2009
"But despite claims of alien interference, snow rollers are understood by experts to be an extremely rare naturally occurring phenomenon. They require just the right combination of temperature, humidity, wind speed, terrain and of course, snow."
Comment: OK, well I have featured rocks that move on their own and bales of hay that combust whilst wet but even I am surprised by this.
Don't look down: The incredible daredevil who balances on the edge of 1,000ft cliffs
Daily mail, 17th April 2009
"It's the ultimate balancing act - travelling upside-down on a bicycle 1,000 metres above an icy Norwegian fjord, with just a weight dangling below him for stability. This is the latest jaw-dropping trick from extreme artist Eskil Ronningsbakken, who enjoys nothing more than precariously perching on the edge of a clifftop or walking on a tightrope between two hot-air balloons. [...]
Seeing his balancing acts as expressions of art and not stunts, Norwegian Eskil has even bigger plans for the future. He says: 'I dream of balancing on the top of the Burj in Dubai, the tallest building in the world.' Eskil sees his balancing acts as expressions of art and not stunts, and is currently working with a group of 50 like-minded performers in Nairobi in Kenya. No fjords there to criss-cross just 'intimate' work balancing on chairs and bicycles. 'A stunt is something you see in movies, often done with mattresses safety lines or nets,' says Eskil.
'What I do, is draw a picture with vulnerable human beings and their bodies, in the surrounding of mother earth. 'That's the balance between life and death, and that is where life is.' Regardless of his particular philosophy, Eskil has performed and produced feats of endurance that seem to be super-human."
Comment: OK, this Norwegian man is encouraging people to think about their balance which is very important as the world faces electromagnetic chaos and with some of the feats demonstrated here, he certainly knows how to get the world's attention... I lived in Norway for 8 years so I can tell you with due respect, these people are tough. Many older people will tell you that downhill skiing is not proper skiing, as it's too easy. So many don't think they have done a proper workout unless they face the challenge of skiing cross country and that means going uphill as well as down, it does not mean skiing on the flat.... I have many tales to tell but no time now.
Police list Jedi as religion after finding force within
It may not be a galaxy far far away, but Strathclycde Police is clearly feeling a disturbance in the Force after eight officers listed their religion as Jedi.
The Telegraph, 16th April 2009
""The Force appears to be strong in Strathclyde Police with their Jedi police officers and staff. "Far from living a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, some members of the noble Jedi order have now chosen Glasgow and its surrounding streets as their home."
A Strathclyde Police spokeswoman said: "At the time of the request, 10 (eight police officers and two police staff) had recorded their religion as Jedi."
The force said the information was provided voluntarily and securely stored. In the 2001 Census for England and Wales around 390,000 people stated Jedi was their religion.
Prior to the census, an e-mail was circulated stating that if 10,000 people put Jedi on the census form, it would become a "fully recognised and legal religion". But the Office for National Statistics did not recognise it as a separate category, and incorporated them with the atheists."
Comment: LOL!! As I have mentioned before, there is a very well known ex-Vice President who took part in a goverment/military sponsored Jedi program....
5 cm. fir tree removed from patient’s lung
Komsomolskaya Pravda, 13th April 2009
Full article: "A five-centimeter fir tree has been found in the lung of a man who complained he had a strong pain in his chest and was coughing blood. The 28-year-old patient, Artyom Sidorkin, came to a hospital in the city of Izhevsk in Central Russia last week, Komsomolskaya Pravda daily reports.
Doctors x-rayed his chest and found a tumor in one of the lungs. Suspecting cancer, they made a decision to perform biopsy, but when they cut the tissue, they were amazed to see green needles in the cut. "I blinked three times, and thought I was seeing things. Then I called the assistant to have a look," says Vladimir Kamashev, doctor at the Udmurtian Cancer Center. The five-centimeter branch was removed from the patient’s body.
"They told me my coughing blood was not caused by any disease," Sidorkin says. "It was the needles poking the capillaries. It really hurt a lot. But I never felt like I had an alien object inside of me." It is obvious that a five-centimeter branch is too large to be inhaled or swallowed, doctors say. They suggest that the patient might have inhaled a small bud, which then started to grow inside his body. Meanwhile, the piece of lung with the little fir tree has been preserved for further study."
Comment: Truly bizarre... I know what I think happened but first I want to see how often this phenomena occurs before I comment.
Hen lays green eggs
Annanova News, 6th April 2009
Full story: "A Croatian poultry farmer is doing a cracking Easter trade in naturally-laid green-coloured eggs. Stipa Gregacevic was astonished when his prize hen Fata began laying coloured eggs at the family farm in Forkusevci. "I can't really explain why it happens," said Stipa. "Some say it might be because we put red pepper in the hen food." And Stipa says customers are happy to shell out twice the going rate for normal eggs to buy a carton of his coloured specials. "We're an organic farm and we're always being told to be more Green but I don't think this is what the scientists have in mind," he added."
Comment: Hmmm... why do chickens need red pepper in their food? Whatever, it gets added as another example of the continuing bizareness.
London rabbi spooked by ghost
British rabbi complains of 'foreign presence' in his new house; congregation members say ghost belongs to founder of local synagogue
Ynet News, 30th March 2009
"The Rabbinical Centre of Europe tackles complicated halachic questions sent by the rabbis of the continent on a daily basis. But nothing prepared the RCE for a recent query by a London rabbi, who sought the center's help in getting rid of a ghost he said was dwelling in his new residence."
Comment: I suppose it's not surprising that there are more and more 'ghost' stories getting into the media as the 'veil is lifting' and all and sundry are starting to realise that we are not alone. What is surprising though is spiritual leaders like this Rabbi who don't realise that we are entering a New Age and that the 'Terms and Conditions' for living on planet Earth are changing drastically. Spiritual leaders must know about and understand paranormal and spiritual phenomena, isn't it their job? The 'higher' dimensions are not abstract intellectual concepts and right now these worlds are now merging with ours. Unfortunately, it seems that many will have to face our new reality with a jolt.
German man calls police over 'Russian-speaking extraterrestrials'
RIA Novosti, 2nd March 2009
Full Story: "A man in northwest Germany called police early on Monday to report a close encounter with Russian-speaking extraterrestrials, police said.
The 40-year-old man from Gifhorn, Lower Saxony called the police at 3:30 a.m. local time [2:30 GMT] and said six extraterrestrial beings, each about 15 centimeters tall, were flying around his apartment and talking Russian. When the police arrived at the scene, the man told them that the aliens' UFO had flown out through the door and hidden in flower boxes. The police spokesman did not say whether the "witness" spoke Russian himself.
Comment: Well, the Russians must have thought this was hilarious!
Brit pub's ghostly cowboy caught on video
Sindh Today.net, 27th February 2009
"London, Feb 27 (ANI): The ghostly figure of a cowboy, who walks in front of a roaring fire in a pub in Britain, has been captured on video. What can be seen of the ghost are a Stetson style hat and a waistcoat, and locals believe that paranormal forces are responsible for it. The ghostly figure was caught on a new mobile phone, when its video mode was being tested, and it was only visible after the recording was played back.
Comment: In the old days, well not that long ago actually, consciousness researchers use to have to 'sensitise' their digital cameras in order to capture multi-dimensional phenomena. Yet now, something fundamental has changed. Anybody can point a brand new camera in any direction and find something interesting! Our reality is changing dramatically and I wonder how some will cope.
A "Ghost" Captured in the British Home
The Sun, 12th February 2009
"A schoolboy has captured eerie footage of what he claims is a ghost striding towards banisters at his home. Terrified Reece Pitman, 12, heard whistling - and used his mobile to film the shadowy being. It came days after his nine-year-old sister complained that someone was mysteriously finishing her jigsaws at night."
Comment: Classic! The video footage is not scary and there also looks like an orb with it too..... How bad does it have to get before people twig that our reality has fundamentally changed?
Hospital calls in exorcist after ghost spotted
A hospital has called in an exorcist after staff claimed they were being haunted by a ghost.
The Telegraph, 30th January 2009
"Staff at Derby's new City General, soon to be renamed the Royal Hospital, which is built on the original City General site, claim a black-clad figure wearing a cloak is stalking the corridors and wards. [...]
Senior manager Debbie Butler has now reportedly briefed the terrified employees via email, explaining that they have hired an exorcist to come and rid the £334 million hospital of their unwanted visitor. One source told The Sun: "There have been dozens of sightings over recent weeks and people are scared witless. "Several have seen a male figure cloaked from had to toe in black darting between rooms and through walls - especially in departments near the morgue. "It's affected morale so much that bosses decided they had to act." The Catholic Church only uses exorcism as a last resort and the ritual must be pre-approved by a bishop."
Comment: Well, as the aetheric density clears, far more people will be able to see ghosts and this is going to become a major problem. So, how some people are going to stay balanced as our world morphs rapidly is a major mystery to me. Where exactly are the major campaigns to educate at a mainstream level that our reality is changing rapidly?
Co-op bans eight pesticides after worldwide beehive collapse
First UK supermarket chain – and Britain's biggest farmer – to prohibit chemicals implicated in the death of over one-third of British bees
The Guardian, 28th January 2009
"The Co-op today became the first UK supermarket to ban the use of a group of pesticides implicated in billions of honeybee deaths worldwide. It is prohibiting suppliers of its own-brand fresh produce from using eight pesticides that have been connected to honeybee colony collapse disorder and are already restricted in some parts of Europe.
The Co-op said it will eliminate the usage of the neonicotinoid family of chemicals where possible and until they are shown to be safe. The Co-op has over 70,000 acres of land under cultivation in England and Scotland, making it the largest farmer in the UK. Since 2001, it has already prohibited the use of 98 pesticides under its pesticide policy.
Comment: It's amazing that our food production has to be under serious threat before sellers realise that maybe if they don't do something, soon there will be nothing to sell.
Britain's strongest girl: The 14-year-old who can lift three times her own body weight
Daily Mail, 5th January 2009
"Think of a weightlifter and the image that comes to mind is of a musclebound hulk with thighs like treetrunks. Think again. Petite 14-year-old Zoe Smith has staked her claim to be the strongest girl in Britain after lifting almost two-thirds more than her bodyweight. The 5ft 2in schoolgirl, who weighs 9 stone, managed to hoist aloft an astonishing 95kg, or 15 stone, in one 'clean and jerk' event. [...]
A former gymnast, Zoe started weightlifting at the age of 12 when she was asked to make up the numbers in a team. She said: 'From my first session, my coach Andy Callard said he could tell I had the natural talent and strength to do well.' He was right. Zoe set an amazing 98 British records in 2008."
Comment: Is Zoe Smith a one-off or an early demonstrator of our new evolutionary abilities?.
Hong Kong University Renounces Its UFO Courses
The decision was made following complaints from the faculty
SoftPedia.com, 29th December 2008
"Ufologists in Hong Kong harshly criticized the Hong Kong University (HKU) for dropping a proposed UFO course, to be provided as an optional subject for those willing to learn about alleged alien sightings and space crafts.
Sources inside the University told AFP that pressure from faculty members made the management change its options on making the subject available to students. The curriculum was prepared in collaboration with the HK Institute of Ufology. "Some members of the university's science faculty were concerned that the course would present only the views of the UFO experts. But we believed that they were just worried about the possibility of ufology becoming a mainstream discipline at the university," said Moon Fong, one of the committee members of the institute. She also argued that this was a common problem for universities overseas, where such subjects are cast aside and laughed at."
Comment: University UFO courses, very interesting!
Doctor removes 'perfectly formed' FOOT growing inside baby's brain
Daily Mail, 18th December 2008
"A doctor has removed a brain tumour from a newborn baby which contained an almost perfectly formed foot and parts of another foot, a hand and a thigh.
The incredible discovery was made by pediatric neurosurgeon Dr Paul Grabb in Colorado, America, when he operated on three-day old Sam Esquibel after an MRI scan showed a microscopic tumour on his brain. The finding in the otherwise healthy baby is so unheard of it could come straight out of Greek mythology in which king of the gods Zeus produced his daughter Athena fully-grown from his forehead. Dr Grabb, who carried out the operation in Memorial Hospital for Children, Colorado Springs, says that while removing the growth, he discovered it contained a nearly perfect foot, complete with five toes, along with the formation of another foot, a hand and a thigh.
'It looked like the breach delivery of a baby, coming out of the brain,' Grabb said. 'To find a perfectly formed structure (like this) is extremely unique, unusual, borderline unheard of.' Grabb is not sure what caused the growth but said it may have been a type of congenital brain tumour. However, such tumors usually are less complex than a foot or hand, he said."
Comment: Unfortunately, the electromagnetic chaos will effect the processing of human DNA. That is why I wrote my book, Tuning the Diamonds to explain why there is a tremendous need to build up our personal energy fields to act as shields and to activate the octahedron/diamond layer of light that acts as the perfect receiver and transmitter, attracting the right frequencies of light to process DNA and deflecting the rest.
A giant knitted rabbit in Italy can be seen from space by visitors to Google Earth.
The Telegraph, 14th October 2008
"The 200-foot-long toy rabbit lies on the side of the 5,000 foot high Colletto Fava mountain in northern Italy's Piedmont region. The pink rabbit was knitted by Gelitin, the Viennese art collective, as an outdoor sculpture for people to climb on, sleep on, and generally play with.
It is made of soft, waterproof, materials and is stuffed with straw. Gelatin say it was "knitted by dozens of grannies out of pink wool". Wolfgang Gantner, a group member said: "It's supposed to make you feel small, like Gulliver. You walk around it and you can't help but smile."
Comment: LOL!! Sorry, I could not resist this and reminds me of Wallace and Gromit.... I am sure the kids would love it but our extra-terestrial onlookers might see this as another example of crazy humans, who knows?
Remember your loved one – as a diamond
Yahoo News, 29th August 2008
"Diamonds really are forever. Algordanza, a small company based in the mountainous southeast of Switzerland, uses the ashes of dead people to make diamonds as a permanent memento for their nearest and dearest. And with prices starting at less than 5,000 euros ($7,488), the jewels are not solely the preserve of the jetset."
Comment: I have reported on this before see Don't turn Daddy into a diamond, judges tell German teenager . At that time I thought it could be the start of an interesting new trend, so this report is some confirmation. The diamond geometry represents universal consciousness, so I would have to say this trend may demonstrate personal deep-seated spiritual understanding.
Eggstrordinary! The egg that is FOUR times the normal size
Daily Mail, 25th August 2008
"Teenage poultry farmer Dean Sambers was stunned when one of his hens laid a gigantic egg - weighing a staggering four times as much as a normal one. The 16-year-old could hardly believe his eyes when he looked in the bird's nest and found the huge specimen resting among two ordinary sized eggs."
Comment: I wonder if it hurt.... well, the aberrations continue big and small....
Judge bans 'grammar vigilantes' from national parks
USA Today Blog, 22nd August 2008
"Two members of the "Typo Eradication Advancement League" pleaded guilty to defacing a historic sign at the Grand Canyon, The Arizona Republic says. According to a blog entry submitted to the court, "grammar vigilante" Jeff Deck wrote about how he corrected some errors on the sign that Mary Colter placed at Desert View Watchtower in 1932.
"I know today was supposed to be my day off from typo-hunting, but if I may be permitted to quote that most revered of android law enforcers, Inspector Gadget, 'Always on duty!' I can't shut it off," he wrote, according to prosecutors, adding: "Will we never be free from the shackles of apostrophic misunderstanding, even in a place surrounded by natural beauty?" The judge ordered Deck and Benjamin Herson to stay out of national parklands for 12 months. They were also sentenced to a year of probation and ordered to pay more than $3,000 to repair the sign."
Comment: Personally, I reserve the right to my bad english and typos and request that my critics learn some tolerance! LOL!!
Curses, the students are doing voodoo
The Dominion Post, 14th August 2008
"Students rarely receive an A for sending a curse to their lecturers, but that is what Massey students are being encouraged to do. The university's new magic and witchcraft paper allows students to make voodoo dolls or "magical curse tablets" for their first assignment."
Comment: According to metaphysical sources and current belief by many, during this time of evolutionary change, all actions are being accelerated and that includes karmic reactions. So before, people seemed to get away with murder, literally, but now the "blow-back" as deemed by universal law is compounded and swiftly returned.
Spirit message convicts paedophile
Paranormal Review, 13th June 2008
"A 61-year-old man was sent to prison yesterday (12 June) because the dead grandmother of one of his victims revealed to medium Patrick Hutchinson (right) that the girl had been abused. He was convicted of five charges of indecently assaulting three girls aged from nine to 11 between 1997 and 2001. Among those in Leeds Crown Court to see father-of-eight Terrance Dunstan jailed for over five-and-a-half years was medium Patrick Hutchinson, who relayed the spirit message which brought the abuse to light." "
Comment: Interesting! ALL actions or energetic transactions are stored in the Universal Field, where they can be retrieved by any competent intuitive.
Tornado oddities: Toilet paper unwinds and rewinds
Comcast.net News, 3rd June 2008
"While hurricanes, floods and blizzards create broad swaths of damage, tornados seem to have tiny fingers that can reach in to small areas and cause some weird mischief. Some say tornados have their own personalities."
Comment: I find the knives thrown into a perfect square quite interesting. Researchers routinely note the bizarre phenomena associated with tornadoes and some have offered a hyperdimensional explanation that would require understanding how geometry is an intrinsic part of these aetheric realms.

World’s Biggest Building Coming to Moscow: Crystal Island
Inhabitat, 26th December 2007
"Moscow’s rapidly growing skyline will soon feature an eye-popping new addition: Crystal Island, which will be the world’s biggest building when completed. Sir Norman Foster’s mountainous 27 million square feet spiraling "city within a building" will cost $4 billion and it is scheduled to be built within next 5 years."
Comment: Incredible and highly symbolic of the influx of spiralling New Energy from the cosmos.
Doctors baffled by green sweat

Comment: This evolutionary change is going to be interesting, as more and more abberations occur....
Strange Snow Circles In Russian City
Rense.com, 1st December, 2007
"YEKATERINBURG, Russia -- November, 6.2007. Russian scientists are curious: what source could cause these strange circles on the snow?" Nice set of images, circles have been found in snow, ice and sand, now that some honest scientists admit that crop circles are created by orbs or plasma entities, carrying out their duties as "messengers of light", it will be interesting to see if the complexity starts to vary.
Eighth wonder of the world? The stunning temples secretly carved out below ground by 'paranormal' eccentric
Daily Mail, November 22nd, 2007
"It all began in the early Sixties when Oberto Airaudi was aged ten. From an early age, he claims to have experienced visions of what he believed to be a past life, in which there were amazing temples. Around these he dreamed there lived a highly evolved community who enjoyed an idyllic existence in which all the people worked for the common good. More bizarrely still, Oberto appeared to have had a supernatural ability: the gift of "remote viewing" - the ability to travel in his mind's eye to describe in detail the contents of any building. "My goal was to recreate the temples from my visions," he says. "
Comment: Some very thought provoking images. It would be interesting to speculate about the existent of highly evolved communities which exist to maintain the balance of energies on Earth.
Whether a cloud, a ghost, an angel or a hoax, it's Blue for sure!

"A strange blue cloud seen floating and darting around customers, freezing for 30 minutes and then speeding from an Ohio gas station, remains unexplained even though it was caught on security cams...Several people said they believe the image is a ghost or an angel."
Comment:well, as the aetheric density on this planet thins out, there are going to be a lot of very freaked out people and a tremendous need to teach people what is happening. At the moment all I can see is the typical New Age navel contemplation. Additional YouTube link: here
Map of Humanity
SLG Publishing, September 2007
Interesting map! I think this map helps us to think about what we are really about and the condition of our soul and spirit. We can use it to contemplate and consider what is important in life and the areas we want to travel and the areas we want to avoid. The north looks far more like home territory to me!
Can moonbeams heal? Tucson's moonbeam reflector
KVOA News, 1st September 2007
Comment: This report informs us that new research is looking at ways to use moonlight to heal illness and disease and this is achieved by using a reflector to collect moonlight at a full moon. The pagans are going to be very happy at this news, as they have a ceremony called Drawing the Moon . It seems that someone is attempting to provide the scientific validation for this ancient practice.

Eskimo, 81, survives 28 days alone in Arctic
ABC News, 1st July 2007
Comment: Well, increased spaceweather promises to create massive geomagnetic flux, electric currents that will knock out power grids. So, I wonder how many people could cope without electricity and all the conveniences of a modern technological world. I imagine that for many people, they will become just as "lost" as leading them out into the wilderness. Our society depends on electricity, so a swathe of damaged grid transformers could cause quite a lot of inconvenience. The way I see it, for the poorest people in the worl
Are aliens tuned in to old radio stations?
Daily Telegraph, 6th June 2007
Comment: Well, the Daily Telegraph are reporting a meeting at the Department of Trade and Industry in London with the government Science Minister, where scientists discuss their plans to look for signs of alien life. The European Space Agency mission called Darwin, is a flotilla of telescopes due for launch in 2018, which will scan 500 stars over five years within a distance of 60 light years and study the light from 50 alien planets to seek vital signs. I have to say I don't know why they are bothering, there is plenty of signs of alien activity right here on Earth, with government after government opening up their UFO files. The references to aliens listening to old radio programs, reminds me of the hilarious Star Trek spoof, "Galaxy Quest". Well, if scientists have watched this comedy classic, they will also know if they are looking for aliens to, 'Never Give Up, Never Surrender!' LOL!
Swarm of bees forces passenger plane to land
Reuters, 25th May 2007
"Huge clouds of bees have been seen around Bournemouth over the past few days, a spokeswoman said." The bees are going wild!
Comment: Someone sent me an email and said that human thought forms that have been controlling bees have broken down. Maybe, but I do think the bees are being sent different instructions via the morphogenetic fields, so I can't give any answers to this particularly bizarre bee behaviour. We need the shamans to tune in and find out what's happening!
ABC 4 Investigation: The mystery of the moving rocks
ABC4.com News, 17th May 2007
Comment:Well, I recommend watching the video and the slideshow here. I obviously think there is an alternative theory to "wind" because 1000lbs rocks that travel for half a mile with tracks that show now sign of tumbling in windy conditions, suggests a magnetic force is acting on the rocks. The clue is the zig-zags and parrallel rock movements. I think the solution will be related to a combination of the rock's own aetheric energy and the aetheric energy associated with the Earth's magnetic field and ultimately the solar wind. Whatever, the result is a force that is strong enough to push these stones, even the huge ones. Gravity? Even our scientists are starting to suspect that gravity is just a side-effect of the electromagnetic force.
Sydney's "free hugs guy" grapples with global fame
Yahoo News, 26th April 2007
Comment: Well, when I saw someone at the Oslo Messe/Alternative Fair with his "Free Hugs" sign, I was somewhat taken aback, but when I saw the YouTube video I was truly impressed. YouTube have declared it as the most inspirational clip on the site and at the last count, the video has been viewed almost 14 million times. A truly nice way to raise the vibration on this planet.
Don't turn Daddy into a diamond, judges tell German teenager
EarthTimes.org, 03 Apr 2007
Comment: I'm in a dilemma here, as author of the book Tuning the diamonds, this man's wishes to have his ashes turned into a diamond could be considered prescient, showing some foreknowledge & foresight! To understand why, you will have to read Tuning the Diamonds. Also, you never know, it could be the start of a new trend.....LOL!!!!!
Picture: The ghostly Angel of the Vatican
Uk Daily Mail, 30th March 2007
Comment:Well, I think that with the change of aetheric density on the planet, we are seeing more evidence of the spectrum of spiritual beings that exist all around us. It amazes me that some people will always try to dismiss this type of evidence as "a trick of the light". What will they say when humans evolve to the state where we won't even need a camera to see these beings, but we can see them with the naked eye?
Mysterious Rock Growing 'Hair' Put on Display in Beijing
The Epoch Times, Mar 26, 2007
CHINA—On March 16, 2007, an unusual rock went on display in Beijing. This rock has "hair," almost identical to human hair, growing out of its "head."
copy: The rock is iron gray in color, naturally smooth and rounded, and is similar to a cobblestone. There is also a very thin layer of scalp tissue connecting the "hair" to the rock. The hair is grey in color and similar to the color of the rock itself. The hair grows quite naturally from the top with the longest strands being about 15 centimeters (6 inches) long. The hair is slightly coarser than human hair.
The rock was found on a beach, and according to Fashion Rock Café's executive Miss Yong, this kind of rock is named a "hair-growing rock". As long as conditions are right, the hair on this rare rock will continue to grow. Only two other hair-growing rocks have been reported in the world; and both are in a Taiwan Museum.
This "hair-growing rock" is in a glass display case at the Fashion Rock Café, located in the Digital Building in Beijing's Zhongguan Village. The rock measures approximately 30 centimeters (11.8 inches) long, 20 centimeters (7.8 inches) wide, and about 15 centimeters (6 inches) high. The value of the rock is estimated to be around 10 million Yuan (approximately USD 1.3 million).
Comment: This rock has "hair," almost identical to human hair, growing out of its "head." I think this is explainable if we think in terms of consciousness and how things "know" how to act and behave. If the rock for some strange reason links up with the pattern or consciousness that orders it to grow hair, then that is what it will do. The rock has the ability to tap into the background electromagnetic field or aether (normally referred to as the rock's morphogenetic field which is really a scalar field) and receive instructions. Now, I am purely specutlating here since this is extremely rare, but I think that sometimes instructions can get "mixed-up" and the result is an aberration. A glitch in the matrix!
