July 23, 2023 – Austin, Texas

Welcome back to another edition of the Anomaly Archives eNews. The UFO/UAP whistleblower headlines just keep coming, and it would seem there is growing bipartisan support for government disclosure of UFO information. In the last few weeks there has been more activity including Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Senator Mike Rounds (R-SD) introducing an amendment (July 14) to the National Defense Authorization Act mandating anamolous phenomena reports to  “carry the presumption of disclosure.”

“The amendment will be modeled on the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992 which required that documents regarding the Kennedy Assassination be made public no later than 25 years later after enactment.”Young.Senate.Gov

The actual amendment states that the, “Purpose: [is] To provide for the expeditious disclosure of unidentified anomalous phenomena records,” including the establishment of… “an independent agency, a board to be known as the ‘‘Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena Records Review Board,’’” the composition of, “The President shall make nominations to the … after considering persons recommended by…

    • The majority leader of the Senate
    • The minority leader of the Senate
    • The Speaker of the House of Rep8 resentatives
    • The minority leader of the House of Representatives
    • The Secretary of Defense
    • The National Academy of Sciences
    • The UAP Disclosure Foundation (we still don’t know who or what that is!)
    • The American Historical Association
    • Such other persons and organizations as the President considers appropriate.”


“It also establishes that the federal government would have “eminent domain” over any recovered technologies of unknown origin and any biological evidence of “non-human intelligence” that may be controlled by private individuals or entities.”Reuters

Six days after Majority Leader Schumer’s UAP amendment, Rep. Burchett held a press conference announcing an upcoming Oversight Committee hearing on UAPs scheduled for this coming Wednesday, July 26th at 9am CST. You can read all about it at the links below and you can watch the live hearings at THIS LINK. It is of course interesting to hear Rep. Burchett and his colleagues speak of the resistance they have received from the Pentagon and Intelligence Community regarding their attempts to move these hearings forward.

Since humans have been conscious enough to ponder the nature of reality they have had metaphysical experiences. These experiences are always beyond the scope of understanding based on the current scientific paradigm. Do metaphysical and mystical experiences serve as some evolutionary mechanism where human beings are unknowingly dangling the carrot in front of themselves, or is something far more strange happening? Do UFOs and DMT offer a chance to peer beyond the veil of our built in senses?

High Weirdness: Drugs, Esoterica, and Visionary Experience in the Seventies

By Erik Davis

“An exploration of the emergence of a new psychedelic spirituality in the work of Philip K. Dick, Terence McKenna, and Robert Anton Wilson.

A study of the spiritual provocations to be found in the work of Philip K. Dick, Terence McKenna, and Robert Anton Wilson, High Weirdness charts the emergence of a new psychedelic spirituality that arose from the American counterculture of the 1970s. These three authors changed the way millions of readers thought, dreamed, and experienced reality—but how did their writings reflect, as well as shape, the seismic cultural shifts taking place in America?

In High Weirdness, Erik Davis—America’s leading scholar of high strangeness—examines the published and unpublished writings of these vital, iconoclastic thinkers, as well as their own life-changing mystical experiences. Davis explores the complex lattice of the strange that flowed through America’s West Coast at a time of radical technological, political, and social upheaval to present a new theory of the weird as a viable mode for a renewed engagement with reality.”

Some Other Sphere

Episode 96 – Patrick Harpur – Daimonic Reality

“Patrick has written extensively on a range of fortean subjects but is perhaps best known for his 1994 book Daimonic Reality: A Field Guide to the Otherworld. This applied the ideas of people such as William Blake, W.B Yeats and Carl Jung to examine the connections across a wide range of paranormal phenomena and explore the history of the realm many believe exists between the states of body and spirit.

The book is regarded as classic of it’s kind and a must have for the bookshelves of people interested in the sort of subjects It covers.

In the interview I begin by talking with Patrick about the concept of daimonic reality and what that term describes. From there we discuss the book and how it came about and then move on to the daimons themselves, what they are, their interactions with humanity and how and why they manifest in our world the way they do.

More information about Patrick and his writing can be found at”

Time Has Come (Original Song) by Louise D’Arcy

“Now we are tumbling towards disclosure of the biggest secret kept from humanity in the history of …well…EVER, I decided to write a song…a simple little song about UFO’s (past to present). Enjoy!!”


Music and Lyrics by Louise D’Arcy

A long time ago in New Mexico A plane crashed down Little did they know The papers said a Saucer crashed But the Airforce came and pulled the pin on that

On late night drive Back in ’61 The Hills saw lights And Barney grabbed his gun A strange ordeal started to unfold With some missing time And Betty’s belly probe


It’s been a long black night A trial, a test But what is buzzing round us We can only guess The time has come to lay the lies to rest We deserve the truth But haven’t got it yet

We had Hynek, Keogh [sic ? Keyhoe ?] and Friedman too Who fought tooth and nail pushing for that truth But the CIA was busy seeding lies Got those tin foil hats and their alibis And the decades passed Never getting far Till a Punk Rocker put down his guitar He left the stage And headed ‘To The Stars’ And as history goes Now here we are


It’s been a long black night A trial, a test But what is buzzing round us We can only guess The time has come to lay the lies to rest We deserve the truth But haven’t got it yet

From the Roswell crash to the Pheonix Lights Even schoolyard sightings in broad day light But the truth stays hushed, the world stays blind And those UFO’s unidentified But the cracks are there that you can be sure Here the whistleblowers all coming forward There’s a ‘Need To Know’ Now a lines been drawn We can’t stand the secrets anymore


It’s been a long black night A trial, a test But what’s buzzing round us We can only guess The time has come to lay the lies to rest We deserve the truth But haven’t got it yet

Its been a long black night Through all the shadows and the lies Ain’t it time we get things right now
