Greetings fellow Forteans, Anomalists, & UFOlks!

It’s a Bigfoot extravaganza this issue – having recently watched documentarian Seth Breedlove’s On the Trail of Bigfoot series and thoroughly enjoyed it, I’ve chosen to share one of the six episodes he’s shared for free via his YouTube channel. The episode in question is the one we’ve touched upon in past eNews installments where Seth and crew visited the Texas-based NAWAC (North American Wood Ape) group’s “Area-X” research site deep in the Ouachita Mountains in Southeastern Oklahoma. All of the episodes are excellent and I urge interested Anomalists to give them a try. I also highly recommend his other series – the ones I’ve watched and enjoyed include: The Flatwoods Monster: A Legacy of Fear (2018), Invasion on Chestnut Ridge (2017), The Mothman of Point Pleasant (2017), Casefiles (2017), and Minerva Monster (2015) – most of which are available on various streaming platforms.

Also in keeping with the Cryptozoological Extravaganza… for this week’s eNews Book-of-the-Week, I’ve chosen one of the bigger and deeper historical overviews of the 1970s era birth of modern Bigfoot research.

In other Bigfoot / Cryptozoology news…

“Brad Ginn and Madelyn Durand, a couple of Western Kentucky University students, said they were awakened in the middle of the night last weekend during a camping trip to Mammoth Cave by a gun-toting man hellbent on tracking down the legendary creature.”

Those last two stories of a couple’s strange experience while camping at Mammoth Cave reflect other recent darker headlines involving acts of gun violence committed by people with extreme “alternative” views of reality ranging from this Arizona case of a gun-wielding Bigfoot believer to a murder case in New York where lawyer’s say the shooter in the thrall of a conspiracy theory they call the “QAnon delusion“:

“A 24-year-old man who has been charged with shooting to death a reputed New York mob boss earlier this year thought he was under the influence of QAnon, pro-Trump Internet postings about the president supposedly battling a cabal of liberal elites, his lawyer wrote in a recent submission to New York state court.”

Of course these two incidents pale in comparison to the terrible tragedies in El Paso and Dayton. As I’ve mentioned before, I am a survivor of a 1979 mass-shooting / sniper event at San Antonio’s 1979 Fiesta “Battle of the Flowers” Parade. I’ve followed the transformation of the high school suicide cluster phenomenon and workplace rampage shootings of the 1980s and 90s as they’ve morphed into the surreal “Mass-Shooter Mayhem” / “Amok America” time we are living through now. I’ve reported on far too many of these incidents over the past twelve years on my PsiOp-Radio show. As much as I wish for us to find a solution to end these atrocities and as sickened as it makes me to research the topic, I find myself continuing to research the issue and revisit past attacks. To that end, I’ve been watching the Showtime TV series, Active Shooter: America Under Fire. It is a very powerful documentary series that focuses on the events themselves as told through the stories of survivors and emergency responders. Anyway – be careful out there; look out for each other and take care of one another…

. . .

Meanwhile, the UFO circus continues with reviews of the recent MUFON 50th Anniversary Symposium, continued critical analysis of the state of verified information about Tom DeLonge’s To The Stars Academy and the military UFO work of Luis Elizondo, reflection on the life and work of Mario Pazzaglini, deep-state / parapolitical audio interview with ARG (Alternate/Augmented Reality Games) pioneer Joseph Matheny on transmedia storytelling and the FBI’s recent warning against QAnon conspiracy theories as potential Domestic Terror Threat, and many other weird news stories for you to read.

Finally, we pay our respects to recently passed paranormal researcher Rosemary Ellen Guiley:

“She authored and compiled nearly 65 books, including books in the “Fate Presents” series, which included her newest title, Planet Bigfoot (2019).”

FLASHBACKS: Anomaly Archives eNews issues circa 2016 & 2017

 

Cargo-Culture:

Anomaly Archives board member, Jeremy Wells, is a journalist writing for the Grayson Journal-Enquirer in Grayson, Kentucky. One of his latest articles can be found in the Spring 2019 edition of the Olive Hill Quarterly. It’s about Seth Breedlove’s latest project from his Small Town Monsters productions (YouTube channel), called On the Trail of Bigfoot. The article, Exploring Reports From The Pacific Northwest To The TriState, can be read online (pages 14-19). If you are truly deeply interested in the subject of CryptoZoology and Bigfoot in America, we highly recommend Jeremy’s more in-depth interview with Seth Breedlove available on YouTube, which we feature as our Cargo-Culture feature for this installment of the Anomaly Archives newsletter, below.

All of this Bigfootery reminds us of the excellent presentation that Jeremy gave to our Anomaly Archives audience back a couple of years ago … this flashback below also features links to the SasWhat podcast episode from two years ago in which a different Seth talks with Texas based bigfoot research org memebers from NAWAC about the infamous Area-X that Jeremy talks about with Seth (Breedlove) in our Cargo Culture feature video…

Talking “On The Trail Of Bigfoot” with Seth Breedlove

“Journalist Jeremy D. Wells discusses the new “On the Trail of Bigfoot” mini-series, from Small Town Monsters, with writer and producer Seth Breedlove.

NOTES: I mistakenly say Daryl Colyer had his first Bigfoot sighting along the Pedernales River. Colyer has confirmed that it was actually along the Trinity River where a large, red (the color of dead pine needles), hair-covered creature crossed the path in front of him. This interview was initially the basis for a magazine article and review of the “On the Trail of Bigfoot” series. Though there are things in the audio that Breedlove asked me not to focus on in that story, or to keep “off the record”, he has given his permission to use the complete, unedited audio of our interview.”

The Anomaly Archives Weekly Email Newsletter

July 5th, 2019 – Austin, Texas

 

Happy July-4th / Independence-Day Weekend!

We hope you all had a fun and safe July-4th and that you have a wonderful holiday weekend.

In this newsletter we have the usual assortment of amazing anomaly headlines as well as a new video from the Anomaly Archives. The video was something I stumbled across recently while double-checking a bunch of old VHS tapes that I thought were empty / blank. As many of you know, I was in charge of hosting and organizing the 38th annual National UFO Conference which was to be the 3rd NUFOC in a row to be held in Texas. The previous year’s event had been held in Corpus Christi and the year before that it was held in San Antonio. It was at that 36th NUFOC (in my birth-town of San Antonio) that I first met researchers James Moseley, Tom Deuley, Kevin Randle, and so many others. While I was attending that September NUFOC in 1999 I was staying with my grandparents and, until seeing this old local news coverage footage on one of those presumed blank VHS tapes, I had completely forgotten that my grandfather had recorded the news coverage the evening of the first day’s lectures. In fact, you can see me among the crowd of attendees in the earlier part of the KSAT-12 news footage. Also featured in the video are closeups of the print-flyer for the event showing the list of speakers, location, cost and summaries of the many speakers presentation topics. We hope you enjoy this flashback focusing on a Ufology from 20 years ago – check out the gallery of screenshots from that local news coverage and the flyer at our NUFOC-36 resource page.

Because of my revisiting this event through this “found footage” and flyer I was reminded of the wonderful collage art used for the print flyer which would later be used as the cover of the Spring 2000 edition of The Anomalist journal (No. 8) published by NUFOC-36 host and organizer Dennis Stacy (donor of collections to the Anomaly Archives) who is co-founder / co-publisher with Patrick Huyghe (seen at the beginning of the news coverage giving his Alien Horde lecture) of The Anomalist journal and Anomalist Books.

[BTW – We are in the process of acquiring copies of the entire catalog of books published by Anomalist Books!]

Since the end of 2018 the Anomaly Archives has been acquiring the personal library and research materials of Robert Joseph Durant. Bob Durant is mostly known for his advocacy of the 1947 Roswell Crash but he has a rich background as a Fortean / Anomalist. He was a huge fan of the works of Charles Fort and served on the board of cryptozoologist Ivan Sanderson’s organization, SITU: Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained. He was also fascinated with psychic phenomena and had become good friends with remote viewers Ingo Swann and Paul Smith. Among his materials were copies of The Anomalist journal featuring his articles on a personal experience with Stigmata and the psychic experiences of Malcolm-X.

Also within those copies of The Anomalist was issue #8 which I was pleased to rediscover contained Kevin Randle’s article (Red Herrings and Alien Abductions) that was sparked by the controversy of his book (which he was speaking about at that 1999 NUFOC event) that erupted on the old UFO UpDates elist of Errol Bruce Knapp’s (including my own contribution to the discussion): Abductee Demographics in the research of Randle’s & Estes’ book The Abduction Enigma. So of course I decided to feature 3 issues of The Anomalist Journal as our Book-of-the-Week!

Book Of The Week

The Anomalist Journal – Nos. 8, 9, & 10 

by Anomalist Books

Excerpts from The Anomalist – No. 8: Spring 2000

FROM MERMAIDS TO LITTLE GREEN MEN:
THE PREHISTORY OF THE UFO ABDUCTION PHENOMENON

BY JERRY CLARK

“Does the available evidence sustain the testimony of today’s abductees that gray UFO beings were snatching people up decades ago? The evidence is not overwhelming. On the other hand, it is not entirely nonexistent.”

. . . And . . .

READING THE STRANGENESS:
SECOND-ORDER ANOMALIES

BY T. PETER PARK

“On the night of November 2, 1967, several people unknown to each other who had been drinking beer had very similar close encounters on roads near Ririe, Idaho with “little men” from UFO’s trying to forcibly enter their cars. Almost exactly ten years earlier, on November 6, 1957, spacemen from UFO’s tried to steal dogs from a boy named Everett in Tennessee and from a man in Everittstown, New Jersey. Are such sets of events mere coincidences–or do they reflect deep patterns with special meanings for their participants, or even for the world at large?”

. . . And . . .

THE BEST UFO CASE EVER?
A REVIEW AND UPDATE OF THE SOCORRO INCIDENT

BY PATRICK HUYGHE

“Until policeman Lonnie Zamora’s sighting made the news in 1964, all other accounts of meetings with the space people came from witnesses of dubious credibility and reputation. And their stories were laughable. Zamora’s story was different. He was a policeman, a highly credible witness. So with this case, the widespread feeling–even among UFO believers–that there was something absurd, if not ludicrous, about humanoids, simply crumbled.”

Excerpts from The Anomalist – No. 9: Winter 2000-2001

THE PSYCHIC LIFE OF MALCOLM X
by Robert J. Durant

The Saturday Evening Post summed up the conclusion of white America, and a substantial portion of black America, in this comment about the publication in 1964 of The Autobiography of Malcolm X: “If Malcolm X were not a Negro, his autobiography would be little more than a journal of abnormal psychology, the story of a burglar, dope pusher, addict and jailbird — with a family history of insanity — who acquires messianic delusions and sets forth to preach an upside down religion of ‘brotherly hatred.’”

Spike Lee’s motion picture about Malcolm X triggered a revival of superficial and mendacious media interest in the phenomenon of the man who was everything the Post said, but much, much more.

. . . And . . .

RED HERRINGS AND ALIEN ABDUCTIONS
by Kevin D. Randle

In July, 1996, at the MUFON Symposium held in Greensboro, North Carolina, Budd Hopkins was disturbed by my paper about pop cultural influences on the imagery of alien abduction. He approached me and said, “You’re not an abduction researcher!” I reminded him that he used information about an abduction I had investigated in his first book on the topic. I have been investigating alien abductions since the mid-1970s and apparently before Hopkins started.

Four years later, that same comment was made, even after having published a number of articles on the topic, and having written two books about abduction. The second of those books, The Abduction Enigma, written with Russ Estes and William P. Cone, has created something of a firestorm, with many attacking without attempting to understand the reason the book exists.

Excerpts from The Anomalist – No. 10: Winter 2000-2001

A Personal Account of a Stigmata 
by Robert J. Durant
“As an airline pilot, I am required to take a physical examination every six months. This is a fairly simple test of blood pressure, hearing, vision and that sort of thing. The exam must be administered by a physician certified by the Federal Aviation Administration. FAA medical examiners are not that common, and those in my vicinity require an appointment, usually a month or so in advance. My flying schedule tends to be erratic and unpredictable, making it difficult for me to meet these appointments. The following events occurred in the summer of 1990. . .”

The Anomaly Archives Weekly Email Newsletter

Greetings fellow Anomalists / Forteans / Seekers!

Another month and a half has passed without this “weekly” email newsletter arriving in your inbox. It’s been a wild whirlwind of ordinary personal life situations keeping me from sitting down and banging out another one of these updates, and… I also went plummeting out of an airplane (thankfully strapped to someone with a parachute) recently! Yeah, that was crazy fun!

BTW – We’re Open, Thursdays and Saturdays 2-6pm!

For the past few months, with the help of several volunteers, the Anomaly Archives has expanded its weekly Open Public Hours to include Thursdays and Saturdays from 2 pm  to 6 pm. We hope you’ll plan your next visit ASAP and come check out our Amazing Archival Collections and check out a book to read from the Lending Library.

Meanwhile… Wow! UFOs are BACK! And with a vengeance! As I alluded to in our last (April 15th) newsletter, “We may be witnessing a new renaissance in anomalistic / para oriented public events.” So keep your wits about you as we all try to navigate the “Frenzy in the Credulous Media” while doing our own investigating as best we can.

Over the past month and a half we’ve seen the passing of legendary paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren, UFO researcher / lecturer Stanton T. Friedman, as well as Texas Psychonaut, Roky Erickson:

The Anomaly Archives Weekly Email Newsletter

April 15th, 2019 – Austin, Texas

 

Hello! Welcome to another installment of our free “weekly” email newsletter!

Image: Anne & Whitley Strieber Collection 1970-2016
at the Archives of the Impossible, Rice University.

We may be witnessing a new renaissance in anomalistic / para oriented public events. While rumors swirl about the activities and identities of anonymous “Invisible College” UFO researchers recently re-described in Dr. Diana Pasulka’s book American Cosmic, public organizations such as the Archives of the Impossible (formerly the GEM Archives [Gnosticism, Esotericism, and Mysticism]) at Rice University, Houston (within the Fondren Library’s Woodson Research Center – special collections) and the Anomaly Archives here in Austin, have been quietly working to archive the UFO scene’s private and public scientific research and popular literature. We’ve also seen the recent success of the SCU’s Scientific Conference on Anomalous Aerospace Phenomena held at the Rocket City Tavern in Huntsville, Alabama, near Redstone Arsenal and we are hoping the 38th annual Society for SSE‘s Scientific Exploration Conference (“Consilience: Developing the Foundations of a New Scientific Paradigm“) indicate a shift towards more scientific and academically accepted public events. Meanwhile, the more traditional, folksy festival type events continue to flourish and grow across the country.

Here are a mix of listings for, and news coverage of, these intriguing recent and upcoming events:

Beyond the many amazing news links in this week’s issue, there are several notable audio and video experiences I’ve had of late that I’d like to recommend to you…

First, with the annual liminal crossing over and into the Halloween / April Fool’s shenanigans-season, I want to encourage you to take a listen to Micah Hanks’ 2019 Festival of Fools’ episode of his Gralien Report radioshow:

If you have access to some of the common modern streaming services you can likely watch the fantastical Fortean natural science program offered by the BBC:

Aaron Gulyas continues doing a phenomenal job with his Saucer Life podcast. In this latest installment he briefly talks about the racist undertones in some modern ufological literature. This subterranean stream has long been discussed by Vallee and others (Erica Lukes and I briefly touched upon it in our recent interview) including MJ Banias and guest philosopher Bryan Sentes in one of MJ’s recent Cafe Obscura video hangouts (Abducting the Alt-Right: Race Politics and Paranormal Subcultures):

Meanwhile, my own DreamTime life has been influenced by the encroaching  reorientation  of perspective created by increased drone photography / reality as seen by me in recent episodes of that NDE (Near Death Experience) induced reality hopping Netflix series called “The OA” as well as a particular webisode of “The Chapter” which is a series on YouTube.  In years past I’ve written about how all forms of unnatural locomotion (from bicycles to  roller-skates to skateboards) can augment your perception of movement within your dreams, whether they be lucid or non-lucid. These two recent visual exposures to the drone as witness and plot / prop device successfully influenced and improved my own nightly dream flight (flying dream) movement. The third video below was unwatched (but noticed) by me before the dream-influencing…  but since watching it the music alone is enough to trigger a flashback to my recent drone-like flying dream:

Another video I’ve been looking forward to watching is this one featuring, narrated and produced by Dr. Greg Little about Edgar Cayce’s perspective on the Native American Mound Builders:

You might also enjoy listening to SMiles’ interview with Dr. Little from back in 2014.

Another flashback-as-possible-precognitive-flash-forward for this newsletter’s introductory editorial… I share with you Tim Binnall’s address to the 4th annual ParaMania Unconference attendees! The informal lectures were held at Expedition Bigfoot (The Sasquatch Museum) in Cherry Log, Georgia:

Who knows… perhaps ParaMania-5 will return the unconvention to its birth-state of Texas.

FLASHBACK to 2017 and…

Greg Bishop’s Epic Adventures

I’ve known author and researcher Greg Bishop since the early to mid 1990s when we met through the alt media zine scene.

Greg recently hosted ParaMania 2017 (Flashback to 2016 Premier) in Los Angeles, giving guests a tour of some of SoCal’s weirdest sights and experiences. The final night Greg and guests did a special informal freewheeling “after-party” round-table discussion live on his Radio Misterioso show. The relaxed and intriguing conversations were made even more interesting by one of ParaMania’s founding members “calling-in” from 30,000 feet! This ParaMania attendee was flying home that night but managed to use the airline’s inflight wifi to stream the show AND skype-call live into the program! You can listen to that epic show at Greg’s Radio Misterioso website (MP3 podcast archive).

FLASHBACK to 2018 and…

May 29th, 2018 – Austin, Texas

Greetings everyone!

It’s taken me even longer than usual to get this latest newsletter “out the door” and into your inbox. We’ve been hard at work unpacking the books onto our new shelves and moving more of the remaining materials from our off-site locations over into our new location. We’ve had our first board meeting in the new space and added a new Advisory Board member – more on that soon.

At the end of last month, between the previous eNews issue and this one, I took a vacation to the 3rd annual ParaMania UnConference in New Orleans and met up with broadcasters / podcasters Tim Binnall and Greg Bishop, as well as researchers / writers Joshua Cutchin and Kenn Thomas while also seeing a gaggle of dear para-interested UFOlk friends, including artist and writer RPJ aka Red Pill Junkie. At the end of that celebration, Tim Binnall did a live webcast saying farewell to his Binnall-of-America interview podcast formula that he’d been conducting since 2005. Check out the archived podcast and reflective article here:

SOURCE: Anomaly Archives eNews 5-29-18

 

Finally, I’ve been experiencing ever increasing levels of synchronicity between anomalous news headlines crossing my path and my personal life. My interest in Native American mound culture has been bruised in sympathy for those effected by this week’s Caddo Mound tornado touchdown and the failure of Austin queso to safely land on the moon.  Terrible tragedies are befalling our fellow global family members all around us while strangely surreal synchronicity often abounds, throwing our emotions intro extremes of juxta-superposition.

Still, we strive to continue our forward momentum.

Book Of The Week

Tom Slick and the Search for the Yeti

by Loren Coleman

Tells the story of the Texas millionaire’s search for the Abominable Snowman, detailing his expeditions between 1956 and 1959 and his pursuit of Bigfoot from 1959 until his death in 1962, uncovering evidence and information thought to be lost…”

“This true story of Texas millionaire Tom Slick’s quest for the Abominable Snowman and other cryptids–creatures unknown to science–reveals a life made for the movies. Fascinating stories of Slick’s early brushes with adventure such as his stepfather’s abduction by George “”Machine Gun”” Kelly in 1933 and his creation of a research facility near Loch Ness are followed by his later expeditions into Nepal and the Pacific Northwest in search of the yeti and its counterpart, the Sasquatch. The story of Slick’s amazing, fanatic, and driven search for the stuff of legends takes readers on a whirlwind journey from the dense temperate rainforests of Washington State to the icy peaks of the Himalayas–and shows that sometimes cryptids leave the halls of the imagination and are found and captured, as proved by the giant panda and the Komodo dragon, leaving readers to wonder what more there is to be discovered.”

“Thomas Baker “Tom” Slick, Jr. (May 6, 1916 – October 6, 1962) was a San Antonio, Texas-based inventor, businessman, adventurer, and heir to an oil and beef empire established by his father in the Southwest. As I have chronicled, Slick’s sponsorship of cryptozoology expeditions in the late 1950s and early 1960s was pivotal to the young science.

Quantum Photonics: The Connection Between Biophotonic Energy & Consciousness with Matthew DeBow

In this presentation, Matt DeBow poses the question, “Is there a connection between the higher aspects of consciousness and biophotonic energy?” He then proceeds to connect the dots between biophotons and the dimensional aspects of human consciousness.

Science is only beginning to understand quantum fields. DeBow believes these fields are directly related to human biology and have a specific geometrical form with a deeper purpose. These energy fields exist within the physical realm (even though for the most part they are undetectable), but they simultaneously manifest on another plane of existence just outside of perception. They are also part of a universal matrix of consciousness to which we are all connected.

This presentation offers a model to explain both the human bio-dimensional energetics of which we are a part and their relation to the quantum field within which we exist. DeBow’s intent is to describe recognizable patterns of the dynamic structures of our energy fields, with the goal of driving a new paradigm in spiritual understanding and evolution.

Matt DeBow is an author, inventor, public speaker and innovative leader. Much of his career has involved marketing, business development and management.

The Anomaly Archives Weekly Email Newsletter

March 21st, 2019 – Austin, Texas

 

Greetings everyone…

smiles lewisThere is always so much going on that I’d like to explore and comment upon but alas, there aren’t enough hours in my day – if only the Anomaly Archives were my “day job.” Suffice to say I urge you to comb through this issue’s many items of interest; from the Video-of-the-Week and Cargo-Culture columns to the amazing array of Anomalous-Headlines.

There’s a good article about the Mystery Hum in the news (see my past lecture on my own personal experience and research) plus news on a study showing humans can sense electromagnetic fields.

We survived another week+ of crazed crowds as well as the requisite increase in traffic and violence (to a level we’ve never seen before) caused by the massive influx of people as part of Austin’s annual SXSW media / music festival. Among the raft of movie premieres at this year’s festivities were “Becoming Leslie,” the “Documentary of [a] man who was the epitome of keeping Austin weird…” and “J.R. ‘Bob’ Dobbs and the Church of the SubGenius,” the documentary that Looks at a Religious Hoax.

Meanwhile there are several articles linked in the news section below detailing the Momo/YouTube parental-panic, loads of links to new books and reviews, yet more articles chronicling the unfolding AATIP / TTSA saga including Luis Elizondo’s recent presentation – “UFOs ARE Real” – at the SCU’s Scientific Conference on Anomalous Aerospace Phenomena held at the Rocket City Tavern in Huntsville, Alabama, near Redstone Arsenal, the History channel’s launch of the new To The Stars Academy series Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation. There is so much I’d like to say about these developments but for now I’ll just quote Red Pill Junkie from his latest Daily Grail article, UFO Programming, TTSA, Techgnosis & Hyperreality:

RPJ Red Pill Junkie     “It bears repeating that TTSA’s connection with the US Intelligence world should not be overlooked… Whenever the CIA or other agencies get involved in the production of a UFO documentary, some subrosa agenda is always embedded…

     A TTSA series might be utilized as a tool to manipulate public opinion so it aligns with some hidden agenda. An agenda that might seek to sell UFOs to the American public as a technological ‘threat’ which should be urgently studied –and even harnessed if possible– lest the Chinese and the Russians beat them to it.

     TTSA has never hidden its purpose to mass produce entertainment content intended to ‘educate’ the public about the reality of UFO phenomenon. From Robbie’s perspective, we could say they seek to manipulate the ‘hyperreality’ of UFOs according to their goals, and they will use all their tools at their disposal –History Channel’s distribution, CGI cinematics, compelling testimonies of credible witnesses– to do so.”

Video-of-the-Week:

We’ve finally posted the videos from December’s OPEN HOUSE Event, with a 30 minute introduction to the Anomaly Archives by SMiles Lewis and two hour video of Nick Redfern‘s lecture, Top Secret Alien Abduction Files: What the Government Doesn’t Want You to Know, including a half-hour Question-and-Answer session with special Dulce-New-Mexico-Mystery-Black-Helicopter story from San Antonio journalist, Ed Conroy (author of the fantastic book, Report on Communion)! These videos aren’t perfect – there are some audio and video issues – but we know you’ll enjoy these phenomenal presentations.

COMING SOON: More videos to be posted soon, including Barbara MacLeod’s epic State-Shamanism presentation, past lectures and interviews with late Texas paranormal-Bigfoot researcher Rob Riggs, and many more! All to be featured at the Anomaly Archives YouTube Channel.

PLUS: Don’t forget there are loads of new videos being posted at the Institute for Neuroscience and Consciousness Studies (INACS) YouTube Channel.

 

Cargo-Culture:

Anomaly Archives board member, Jeremy Wells, is a journalist writing for the Grayson Journal-Enquirer in Grayson, Kentucky. One of his latest articles can be found in the Spring 2019 edition of the Olive Hill Quarterly. It’s about Seth Breedlove’s latest project from his Small Town Monsters productions (YouTube channel), called On the Trail of Bigfoot. The article, Exploring Reports From The Pacific Northwest To The TriState, can be read online (pages 14-19). If you are truly deeply interested in the subject of CryptoZoology and Bigfoot in America, we highly recommend Jeremy’s more in-depth interview with Seth Breedlove available on YouTube, which we feature as our Cargo-Culture feature for this installment of the Anomaly Archives newsletter, below.

All of this Bigfootery reminds us of the excellent presentation that Jeremy gave to our Anomaly Archives audience back a couple of years ago … this flashback below also features links to the SasWhat podcast episode from two years ago in which a different Seth talks with Texas based bigfoot research org memebers from NAWAC about the infamous Area-X that Jeremy talks about with Seth (Breedlove) in our Cargo Culture feature video…

FLASHBACK March 2016: Bigfoot reports & southern habitats . . .

     Anomaly Archives Board Member Jeremy Wells will be presenting / discussing Bigfoot reports and habitat in East Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas. Jeremy currently works as a freelance writer, editor, and training specialist in the video game industry and served as a researcher and field investigator with the Texas Bigfoot Research Conservancy (now NAWAC – North American Wood Ape Conservancy). We hope you’ll join us for this sure to be interesting and educational lecture.

     [NOTE: This is not an official presentation by NAWAC – though I highly recommend there work. If you’d like to learn more about their efforts, visit their website and take a listen to this recent episode of the SasWhat podcast.]

          Episode 84: Talking Area X (again) and Apes with Brian Brown – This week Seth sits down with Brian Brown to talk about the latest happenings with the NAWAC and their recent experiences in Area X. If you’ve been itching to hear what activity has been taking place inside the Ouachitas this past Winter then this is the episode for you! Special thanks to our listeners for submitting the bulk of the questions used in this episode.

 

Book-of-the-Week:

Another rare old book from the Bob Girard Collection… this one from the early 1800s on the enigma of Stonehenge – and with an amazingly psychedelic cover print… this little gem is so cool that we showed it off at last year at our Austin Archives Bazaar booth and our Open House event.

 

Until next issue…

SMiles Lewis Discusses the Anomaly Archives at its 2018 Open House Event

Introduction to the Anomaly Archives at the December 8th, 2018, Open House Event.

SMiles Lewis gives an introductory overview of the 501(c)3 nonprofit Scientific Anomaly Institute (Anomaly Archives) as part of the opening ceremonies for the Open House event for both the archives and its partner organization, INACS (Institute for Neuroscience And Consciousness Studies). This Open House event featured introductions to INACS by board president Bob Price, SAI founder and president SMiles Lewis, featured guest speaker Nick Redfern, tours of the new facility, and Holiday Celebration Party afterwards.

In this introduction, Miles gives some brief background on himself and what led him to found the Anomaly Archives in 2003.

He also briefly describes the various past locations of the Anomaly Archives while also describing the mission / goals and activities of the nonprofit.

Miles gives thanks to the many people he’s met along the way who have helped him with the organization through their volunteerism, donated collections, and more.

The many historic anomalous incidents that have occurred across the state of Texas are touched upon; from famous cryptid sightings (Bigfoot, Lake Worth Monster, etc.) to famous UFO sightings like the Cash-Landrum close encounter, Ray Stanford’s Blue Book “Unidentified” case from Austin’s Mansfield Dam, and local experiencers like San Antonio’s Whitley Strieber, and other abductees across Texas.

Talking “On The Trail Of Bigfoot”
with Seth Breedlove

“Journalist Jeremy D. Wells discusses the new “On the Trail of Bigfoot” mini-series, from Small Town Monsters, with writer and producer Seth Breedlove.

NOTES: I mistakenly say Daryl Colyer had his first Bigfoot sighting along the Pedernales River. Colyer has confirmed that it was actually along the Trinity River where a large, red (the color of dead pine needles), hair-covered creature crossed the path in front of him. This interview was initially the basis for a magazine article and review of the “On the Trail of Bigfoot” series. Though there are things in the audio that Breedlove asked me not to focus on in that story, or to keep “off the record”, he has given his permission to use the complete, unedited audio of our interview.”

Video-of-the-Week:

Last issue we announced the return of new videos from our INACS partners and the vids just keep on coming! INACS recently released the video for physicist, Thomas Campbell’s legendary first North American lecture and workshop on his Big TOE (Theory Of Everything) ideas. This video has been 10-years in the making (long story…). This is the lecture portion of this historic INACS event from a decade ago and video of the workshop may soon follow. See below for details…

If you missed last month’s (Tuesday, February 19th) IONS Austin (Co-Sponsored by INACS) presentation by physicist Sirley Bonham on Self-Experiments with Consciousness and Hypnagogia: A scientist’s personal exploration of consciousness at the threshold of sleep and beyond at its Meetup … well you can now watch the archived video presentation by Sirley Marques Bonham, Ph.D. and see her share her personal experiences with Lucid Dreams, OBEs, Remote Viewing, Spiritual Insights and more! Meetup link for more details.

More new videos are being posted at the INACS’ YouTube Channel:
Institute for Neuroscience and Consciousness Studies (INACS)

Cargo-Culture:

Yet more videos in this issue… this time it’s a music-video from the delirious duo of Les Claypool and Sean Lennon. This fanciful “Terry Gilliamesque” animated video is so much fun – incorporating imagery of Rocketry, Sex Magicians Crowley, Parsons, and Hubbard, Flying Saucers and More – I just had to share. If you are unfamiliar with the idea of Crowley’s magical workings ripping open a dimensional doorway and ushering in the birth of the modern UFO era … you should read Adam Gorightly’s classic, Ritual Magic, Mind Control and the UFO Phenomenon. Gorightly says:

“In Sex and Rockets, Carter quotes Crowley successor Kenneth Grant, who wrote, “The [Babalon] Working began…just prior to the wave of unexplained aerial phenomena now recalled as the ‘Great Flying Saucer Flap’. Parsons opened a door and something flew in.” Carter also suggests it might have been the atomic bomb that opened this door between dimensions. He then further illustrates the importance of the year 1947, which ended the first stage of the Babalon Working, as Parsons and Hubbard parted ways amid a cloud of turmoil. 1947 was the year that the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered. In that very same year, Israel became a nation state, the transistor was invented and the sound barrier broken. Last, but certainly not least, the Modern Age of UFO’s flew into view with the Kenneth Arnold sightings, followed not long after by the alleged saucer crash in Roswell, New Mexico. 1947 was also the year the Great Beast, Aleister Crowley died.”

Coming up next issue we should have videos from our December Open House event with organizational introduction by SMiles Lewis and lecture plus QnA with our featured guest speaker, Nick Redfern on his book, Top Secret Alien Abduction Files.

Thomas Campbell: Consciousness and the Larger Reality; The Inside Story

New Videos from INACS

From INACS President, Bob Price:

“To commemorate the 10th anniversary of Thomas Campbell’s first North American lecture and workshop (in Austin Texas), and to honor the legions of folks who were unable to attend but have requested a video of the event for years, I’m pleased to announce the video of Tom’s presentation is now available!  (As to why it took ten years to release the video–it’s a long boring story that I’d be glad to tell you over a beer some day ;->!)

During this lecture as well as the ensuing workshop, Tom discusses the ideas brought forth in his 3-volume Big T.O.E. (Theory of Everything), including the unifying connections between physics and consciousness.  Tom takes a deep dive into everything you always wanted to know about consciousness and reality–discovery, awakening, and the inner workings of philosophy, physics, and metaphysics.

For those of you who are already familiar with Tom and his work, just click here to watch this amazing video: https://youtu.be/ojw0L6jZagk Hope you enjoy it!  Don’t forget to subscribe to our youTube channel, check out our other videos, and leave feedback!

For those of you who do not (yet) know Tom and his work:

Thomas Campbell is a physicist, lecturer, and author of the My Big T.O.E. (Theory of Everything) trilogy, a work that attempts to unify general relativity, quantum mechanics, and metaphysics along with the origins of consciousness.

Tom began researching altered states of consciousness with Bob Monroe (Journeys Out Of The Body, Far Journeys, and The Ultimate Journey) at Monroe Laboratories in the early 1970s where he and a few others were instrumental in getting Monroe’s laboratory for the study of consciousness up and running. These early drug-free consciousness pioneers helped design experiments, developed the technology for creating specific altered states, and were the main subjects of study (guinea pigs) all at the same time. Campbell has been experimenting with, and exploring the subjective and objective mind ever since. For the past thirty years, Campbell has been focused on scientifically exploring the properties, boundaries, and abilities of consciousness.

My Big TOE is a model of existence and reality that is based directly on Campbell’s scientific research and first hand experience. It represents the results and conclusions of thirty years of careful scientific exploration of the boundaries and contents of reality from both the physical and metaphysical viewpoints. Tom has made every effort to approach his explorations without bias or preconceived notions. There is no belief system, dogma, creed, or unusual assumptions at the root of My Big TOE.

By demanding high quality repeatable, empirical, evidential data to separate what’s real (exists independently and externally) from what’s imaginary or illusory; Campbell has scientifically derived this general model of reality.

You can learn more about Tom Campbell and his Big TOE at: www.mybigTOE.com.

Happy New Year! Here’s to 2019… and BEYOND!

Here’s wishing you all the best for the New Year!

Open-House / Lecture / Holiday Party

A couple of Saturdays ago, on December 8th, 2018 … We hosted our first Open House with tours of the new facility, a lecture by Nick Redfern on his new book (Top Secret Alien Abduction Files) and a Holiday Party afterwards. We had a wonderful time at this multifaceted event. A full-house greeted our guest speaker Nick Redfern after Bob Price and SMiles Lewis gave introductions to our respective organizations. These talks were recorded and should be available soon at our website and YouTube channel. In the meantime you can view a few photos at the Website.
Videos-of-the-Week:

Besides videos of Nick Redfern’s recent talk and SMiles Lewis’ organizational introduction lecture coming soon, we’ll also be posting video of Barb MacLeod’s Mayan-State-Sponsored-Shamanism presentation from last year as well as our archival footage of Texas’s ParaCryptozoologist Treasure: Rob Riggs. And there is more to come…

In the meantime, here is video of SMiles Lewis’ presentation to the Anomaly Archives monthly meetup circa September 2017 about his February 2016 Mystery Hum Experience.

PLUS, another Cargo Culture video… As a close friend was leaving the other night, something in our conversation sparked his memory of a pop song dealing with themes of suppressed experience … about an abduction that was really a close encounter portending utopian future realities, thousands of creatures in cities of light without hate … but the man is pressured by the powers-that-be to: Keep it dark! 

Book-of-the-Week

This week’s selection is a book that I’ve recently read, cover to cover, over the holiday weekend. I’ve not read a physical book this fast in years. I’ve been wanting to read this book for several several years and so it felt good to kick back with a more fast and loose narrative storytelling tome than stodgier types of nonfiction. It explores paranoid themes of gang stalking, possible covert government / military / law enforcement / corporate espionage, hi-tech R & D exploitation of “invisible” people by “invisible midgets” a la the invisibility cloak suit of the alien in the Predator movies. I recall the wave of negative comments in the online Fortean Times forum about the featured cover article that promoted the book. Regardless of the veracity of the book’s most spectacular claims, it is an excellent launching pad for more discussion and an entertaining read by an author / researcher of whom more people should be aware.

Until next issue…

Song by Genesis
Lyrics
Found that man reported missing,
He wandered in his home.
It don’t seem to bad if you consider
Just what he’s been through.
Seems he met up with a gang of thieves,
Who mistook him for a man of means,
They locked him up then found he had no money,
So they let him go again.
Now he’s back at home and happy
Just to see the kids.

I wish that I could really tell you
All the things that happened to me
And all that I have seen.
A world full of people their hearts full of joy,
Cities of light with no fear of war,
And thousands of creatures with happier lives,
And dreams of a future with meaning and no need to hide.

Oh, keep it dark.

It seems strange to have to lie,
About a world so bright.
And tell instead a made-up story,
From the world of night.

I wish, that I could really tell you,
All the things that happened to me
And all that I have seen,
A world full of people their hearts full of joy,
Cities of light with no fear of war,
And thousands of creatures with happier lives,
And dreams of a future with meaning and no need to lie,
No need to hate,
No need to hide.

Oh, keep it dark.

Songwriters: Michael Rutherford / Phil Collins / Tony Banks
Keep It Dark lyrics © Concord Music Publishing LLC

Song information

A light rock song, it describes a man who has been to the future and has seen a bright, happy world where everyone is filled with joy, cities are filled with light, with no fear of war, and all exploitation has ceased as all creatures have happier lives. Once he returns, however, he is pressured to lie about the incident (i.e., to “keep it dark”). Instead he claims that he was kidnapped by thieves who wanted to take his money.[citation needed]. The cover depicts the three wise monkeys.

In the DVD interview accompanying the 2007 re-release of Abacab, the album from which the song comes, composer Tony Bankssaid that “the idea was that this character had to pretend that he’d just been robbed by people and that’s why he’d disappeared for a few weeks, and in fact what had happened [was] he’d been to the future and gone to this fantastic world where everything was wonderful and beautiful and everything… but he couldn’t tell anybody that, because no one would believe him and the powers that be kept him silent.”[citation needed]

The song’s structure is unusual: the rhythm is in a 6/4 time signature, with a distinctly syncopated rhythm guitar part. Lead singer Phil Collins sings in falsetto for certain lines of the song.[citation needed] The pace overall, particularly the drums, is similar to the album’s title track.

Music video

A music video supported the single release of the song, featuring Collins, Tony Banks, and Rutherford in two different settings. In the first and second verses and the fade out, the band walks along bleak city streets (in Amsterdam) wearing trenchcoats and fedoras. When the chorus comes in, it shifts to the band wearing all-white suits and sunglasses, and walking through a field, with the sun shining. In both settings, Banks mimes with a mini Casio keyboard and Rutherford with the neck from a guitar, while Collins keeps the beat of the song with drumsticks, mostly hitting air, or the walls of the Amsterdam houses.

Book Of The Week

Chameleo: 

A Strange But True Story of Invisible Spies, Heroin Addiction, and Homeland Security

by Robert Guffey

     “A mesmerizing mix of Charles Bukowski, Hunter S. Thompson, and Philip K. Dick, Chameleo is a true account of what happened in a seedy Southern California town when an enthusiastic and unrepentant heroin addict named Dion Fuller sheltered a U.S. Marine who’d stolen night vision goggles and perhaps a few top secret files from a nearby military base.

     Dion found himself arrested (under the ostensible auspices of The Patriot Act) for conspiring with international terrorists to smuggle Top Secret military equipment out of Camp Pendleton. The fact that Dion had absolutely nothing to do with international terrorists, smuggling, Top Secret military equipment, or Camp Pendleton didn’t seem to bother the military. He was released from jail after a six-day-long Abu-Ghraib-style interrogation. Subsequently, he believed himself under intense government scrutiny — and, he suspected, the subject of bizarre experimentation involving “cloaking”— electro-optical camouflage so extreme it renders observers practically invisible from a distance of some meters — by the Department of Homeland Security. Hallucination?
