Book & Video(s) Of The Week!

Back in 2002 a book was published that sent rippling shock-waves through the UFO community. That book was about possible anti-gravity propulsion and was written by the most unexpected author, Nick Cook. Nick was the aviation editor of Jane’s Defence Weekly (the international defense journal) in the 1990s. He continued as “an aerospace consultant and contributor to the journal from 2002 to 2008” and “won four Journalism Awards from the Royal Aeronautical Society in the Defence, Business, Technology, and Propulsion categories.” Though I felt fairly versed in the material, I only just recently acquired a copy of the book and began voraciously reading it from cover to cover. The book is an entertaining account of his global search for evidence of such secret propulsion technology. Along the way he met with Austin’s own Hal Puthoff while trying to better understand the nature of the alleged physics underpinning the title of the book… The Hunt for Zero Point!

Having not heard anything about him in many years, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that, besides returning to the field of UFOs and exotic propulsion, he had been continuing his explorations into the unknown through researching psychic Remote Viewing, the After-Life, and Consciousness generally. In the wake of the 2017 NYTimes revelations about AAWSAP / AATIP and the revitalization of the UFO field under the new UAP moniker, Nick had even submitted his own essay to the 2021 BICS (Bigelow Institute for Consciousness Studies) Essay Contest and in doing so garnered $20,000 as an Honorable Mention for his essay, What Is The Best Available Evidence For The Survival Of Human Consciousness after Permanent Bodily Death? [PDF] (see also Greg Taylor of DailyGrail.com‘s essay which also garnered an honorable mention and awarded funds [PDF]).

So below in our Videos-Of-The-Week section you’ll find recent presentations by Nick Cook on his past Hunt For Zero Point research and where that lead him … including a discussion with Jeffrey Mishlove titled High Strangeness, UFOs, and the Afterlife. Nick and Jeff connected at the BICS awards event where Jeffrey Mishlove accepted 1st Prize (and $500,000) for his essay [PDF].

As usual, we have a ton of news links for you to explore in our Anomalous News section below.

We hope you enjoy this issue of the Anomaly Archives eNews.

High Strangeness, UFOs, and the Afterlife with Nick Cook

“Nick Cook is author of twenty fiction and nonfiction titles includingThe Hunt for Zero Point: Inside the Classified World of Antigravity Technology, and a popular parapsychological thriller, The Grid. He is the former aviation editor of Jane’s Defense Weekly.

Here he describes his interest in reconciling consciousness research, the paranormal, and nuts and bolts descriptions of unidentified aerial phenomena. He describes events from his childhood that triggered this quest for knowledge. He also shares his understanding that the universe, itself, is conscious. In this conversation, Jeffrey Mishlove shares some stories concerning his investigation of Ted Owens, “the PK Man.”

New Thinking Allowed host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in “parapsychology” ever awarded by an accredited university (University of California, Berkeley, 1980). He is also the Grand Prize winner of the 2021 Bigelow Institute essay competition regarding the best evidence for survival of human consciousness after permanent bodily death. (Recorded on December 3, 2021)”

Nick Cook – Beyond Zero Point: Black Projects & UAPs

“Go beyond “Zero Point” as Nick Cook discusses secret aerospace defense projects and UAPs. Nick is the former aviation editor of Jane’s Defence Weekly, and to discuss what’s changed since HZP’s publication, and the rapidly-evolving UAP story.

Back in 2001, Nick Cook stunned the world with The Hunt for Zero Point” , which offered insights into the secret Nazi weapons programs of World War II and how those influenced classified aerospace research over the course of the 20th century.

He joins us today to discuss what has changed since HZP’s publication, and offers his thoughts and insights on rapidly-evolving UAP story and how social & geopolitical trends are shaping the aerospace needs of tomorrow.”

Remembering Erma Jean Staffen (Post from SMiles’ personal website)

The morning of August 21st, Facebook’s memories of past posts reminded me of a cute Ghostbusters/Dog-Shaming meme that my friend from the previous Reality Tunnels (pre-Pandemic / pre-Trump / pre-911 / pre-Y2k) had posted on my timeline back in 2016. That friend was Jean Staffen.

In 2016 we reconnected via facebook after many years. In 2017 she told me she was dealing with significant health issues. We exchanged brief messages until I stopped hearing from her in April of 2020. Today, because of that facebook reminiscence I did an internet search for her name…

Erma Jean Staffen 

AUGUST 1, 1939 – MAY 18, 2022

Erma Jean Staffen, age 82, of Bastrop, Texas passed away on Wednesday, May 18, 2022. Erma was born August 1, 1939.  — NeptuneSociety.com

I think I first met Jean at a meeting of the local MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) chapter sometime between 1990 and 1992 when she formed Austin’s UFO/Abduction Support Group. She had mysterious memories of anomalous childhood experiences at age 3, 9, 13 and onward that led her to form this group. These were heady days and I recall many fantastic public meetings and private conversations with her and other members of the Austin UFO community.

A couple of years after founding and running the local UFO support group, Jean “got the call to go West.” She asked and I accepted the role of continuing that support and study group. I led the monthly meetings for the next four years. Jean returned to Austin in 1998 and disbanded the group. She started a new group called Truth Seekers, or similar. This monthly group met to discuss all manner of esoteric, metaphysical, and conspiratorial topics. One of the few I attended focused on an area of particular interest to me, the health effects of electromagnetic energy.

Jean had contributed her own written thoughts on the subject of UFO encounters / alien abductions for Susan Lepselter’s UT dissertation and they both let me reproduce some of those writings in my print zine, E.L.F. Infested Spaces, back in 1994.

We lost track of each other for many years until reconnecting in 2016 when she’d retired to Bastrop, Texas. I  never got to have a long talk with her and catch up on so much of Austin’ UFO history that she was a part of but it was nice at least messaging each other with links and cartoons every month or so until I stopped hearing from her.

Well, I now know that she passed on in May of this year. Safe travels my friend…

Contact With Colliding Worlds Part 1 Synchronicities of SilenceBlog Post

“I was going to write a blog reviewing Trinity: The Best Kept Secret by Jacques Vallee and Paola Leopizzi Harris but interesting synchronicities kept presenting themselves, especially as I concurrently read The Pueblo Revolt by David Roberts about the same area of the country during a different time period. What follows is a collection of reflections, occasional wandering tangents and some questions.”
