     “The term ‘out-of-body experience’ was introduced in the 1960s by Celia Green … While there had been stories of out-of-body experiences for centuries, Green was the first to systematically examine a large number of first-hand accounts, from more than four hundred people …”

The Anomaly Archives endeavors to revive and inspire people’s sense of Wonder and Adventure!

 

First Anomaly Adventure Club Meeting – February 8th, 3-5pm

“Bring ‘em Back Amused. The Tale of Frank Buck and his Monkey Mountain.”

There beats in the hearts of many the yearning for adventure, and so, in 1911, to satisfy that need “Adventure!” magazine was created. It was filled with thrilling tales of travel, intrigue, and exotic occurrences.

It spawned a club of like-minded people who gathered to revel in the idea of adventure and all its tantalizing trappings — the Adventurer’s Club. Adventurers gathered every month to share stories of excitement and glory. Many interesting people have crossed the Club’s threshold, and it is high time that their stories be shared with a wider audience.

One of these adventurers was once a household word and an American celebrity whose very name was a byword for all things exotic and thrilling. This was Frank Buck of Gainesville, Texas, an animal collector who cared so deeply about the animals he rounded up for zoos that his motto was, “Bring ‘em back alive.” His passion for animals led him to fame and fortune, movies and mayhem. The things he managed to do and experience in his lifetime will both astonish and amuse.

To find out more about this long-lost yet fascinating character from the recent past , please join us for “Bring ‘em Back Amused. The Tale of Frank Buck and his Monkey Mountain.”

The Anomaly Archives Adventurer’s Club meeting will be held from 3pm to 5 pm on Saturday, February 8th, 2020.

Book Of The Week

Inside the Black Vault: 
The Government’s UFO Secrets Revealed

by John Greenewald Jr.

“In 1996, John Greenewald, Jr. began researching the secret inner workings of the U.S. Government at the age of fifteen. He targeted such agencies as the CIA, FBI, Pentagon, Air Force, Army, Navy, NSA, DIA, and countless others.

Greenewald utilized the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to gain access to more than two million pages of documents. This archive includes information relating to UFOs, the JFK Assassination, chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons, and top secret aircraft. He took the millions of pages, and over the course of more than two decades, has built an archive known around the world, as The Black Vault.

Inside The Black Vault: The Government’s UFO Secrets Revealed takes you on a journey within the secret world of unidentified aerial phenomenon that has plagued the military since at least the 1940s. Declassified records prove that the UFO topic is one of the most highly classified and most elusive subjects the U.S. Government has ever dealt with. Each chapter explores various agencies and their documents, and Greenewald breaks down the meaning of why some of the most important documents are relevant to proving a massive cover-up.

Along with declassified documents, Greenewald outlines the struggle it took him to get them. No other topic has proven so difficult, in more than 8,000 FOIA requests that he has filed. He explores why that might be and meets skeptics and debunkers head on, outlining why some of their more prominent rebuttals for it all cannot be true.”

Happy New Year fellow Forteans, Anomalists, & UFOlks!

Do you have a piece of the puzzle?

Board Members Needed

We need your help! The Anomaly Archives is looking for energetic people to expand its board of directors, including its board officers and advisers. We are seeking new people to serve on the board and actively engage in the ever expanding activities of the nonprofit Scientific Anomaly Institute / Anomaly Archives. Previous experience serving on the board of a nonprofit is preferred but not necessarily required. Residence within Austin (or even within Texas) is not required but certainly makes participating in quarterly board meetings a bit easier. If you are interested and want to be actively involved in volunteering your time and wisdom in service to the Mission and Goals of the Anomaly Archives, then please Contact Us!

Monthly Meetups Coming in 2020!

The Anomaly Archives will soon be announcing the dates and times for a new recurring monthly Meetup series. We are very excited by this upcoming resumption of regular meetings for like-minded Anomalists, Forteans, and Seekers. These new meetings will likely occur the same Saturday each month from 3-5pm … Stay Tuned for Details as to Which Saturday of the Month!

In the meantime, you can subscribe to our Meetup Group Here for future updates.

Last year the Anomaly Archives acquired special edition copies of a book we already had copies of in our collection (both lending and non-circulating copies) by one of the field’s most respected researchers.

Check out the Book of the Week information below for a look at this truly unique special edition of Jacques Vallee’s and Chris Aubeck’s, Wonders in the Sky!

Book Of The Week

Wonders in the Sky:
Unexplained Aerial Phenomena From Antiquity to Modern Times

by Jacques Vallee &  Chris Aubeck

One of the most ambitious works of paranormal investigation of our time, here is an unprecedented compendium of pre-twentieth-century UFO accounts, written with rigor and color by two of today’s leading investigators of unexplained phenomena.

In the past century, individuals, newspapers, and military agencies have recorded thousands of UFO incidents, giving rise to much speculation about flying saucers, visitors from other planets, and alien abductions. Yet the extraterrestrial phenomenon did not begin in the present era. Far from it. The authors of Wonders in the Sky reveal a thread of vividly rendered-and sometimes strikingly similar- reports of mysterious aerial phenomena from antiquity through the modern age. These accounts often share definite physical features- such as the heat felt and described by witnesses-that have not changed much over the centuries. Indeed, such similarities between ancient and modern sightings are the rule rather than the exception.

In Wonders in the Sky, respected researchers Jacques Vallee and Chris Aubeck examine more than 500 selected reports of sightings from biblical-age antiquity through the year 1879-the point at which the Industrial Revolution deeply changed the nature of human society, and the skies began to open to airplanes, dirigibles, rockets, and other opportunities for misinterpretation represented by military prototypes. Using vivid and engaging case studies, and more than seventy-five illustrations, they reveal that unidentified flying objects have had a major impact not only on popular culture but on our history, on our religion, and on the models of the world humanity has formed from deepest antiquity.

Sure to become a classic among UFO enthusiasts and other followers of unexplained phenomena, Wonders in the Sky is the most ambitious, broad-reaching, and intelligent analysis ever written on premodern aerial mysteries.”

Seasons Greetings & Happy Holiday Festivities to all of our Anomalist, Fortean, and UFOlk friends and supporters from around the world.

This issue signals a departure from our past approach to “weekly” installments of the Anomaly Archives eNewsletter. We’ve done this latest iteration of the eNews for over three years now. We’re still going to be sending you anomalous emails but we’ll be experimenting with some new ways of doing that in the coming months … as we enter the ever liminal “Hindsight / MindSight” zone of the year 2020.

Things are shaping up to be very interesting next year for the Anomaly Archives. We hope to be making some big announcements soon about probable new monthly meetups, special cinema events, amazing lectures and much more.

ruth-l-miller-portraitIn the meantime, keep your eyes open for details about our upcoming Holiday Party that starts with special guest presenter, channeler Ruth L. Miller. This event is being cosponsored by the IONS Austin Community Group, INACS (Institute for Neuroscience And Consciousness Studies), and the Anomaly Archives. “Keep Top Eye Open” for the official announcement with all the details.

Psst … It’s happening Sunday, December 15th.

The Anomaly Archives presents

Paul Smith “Remote Viewing UFOs: Pitfalls and Promise”

September 5th, 2016

Paul Smith

“Using one mystery to try to explain another: That’s what seems to be happening in the perpetual interplay between remote viewing (RV) and unidentified aerial phenomena–popularly known as UFOs–space aliens, and everything connected to them in the popular culture. This confluence of RV and UFOs goes back almost to the beginning of remote viewing itself, and not just the notorious, but some of the most prominent and respected members of the remote viewing community have indulged. Impossible to fully capture in one evening discussion, I nonetheless introduce you to the general outlines of the controversy, sketch for you the interrelationships of some of the main figures and their claims, show you some of the more provocative and interesting results, and explain the advantages and shortfalls of employing remote viewing to ferret out the truth of extraterrestrial visitation.”

Four Volumes of Jacques Vallee’s Forbidden Science Journals

Greetings fellow Forteans, Anomalists, & UFOlks!

Book-of-the-Week

This issue of the newsletter features a Book-of-the-Week entry focused upon the latest installment of the personal journals of someone who is – by most UFOlks assessment – the world’s preeminent authority on the UFO phenomenon. In 1992, Jacques Vallee published the first volume of his personal journals covering 1957-1969. I remember my excitement upon first reading his deeply personal and amazingly historical chronicling of that early formative period of the “modern UFO era.” With each subsequent volume covering a decade’s time, I’d end up with copious notes for nearly every page of some bit of information I wanted to note and follow-up on later. This latest volume, number four covering the 1990s, is resulting in no less incidence of my note-taking and making my progress incredibly slow – as exciting as each volume always is. These journals have always helped clarify my understanding of Vallee’s pluralistic approach to exploring and potentially explaining the various phenomena surrounding the phenomenon. This period covering the 90s is particularly resonant with today’s current UFOlogical reprises that encompass such X-Files era favorites as billionaire Bob Bigelow’s NIDS organization (and what many call “NIDS 2.0” regarding the ongoing revelations about the AATIP Pentagon program and resulting “DeLongian” TTSA), Area-51 and Bob Lazar, Alien Autopsy footage, etc. In fact this fourth volume, covering as it does the decade of the 1990s, includes Vallee’s memories of getting feedback before and after the publishing of that first volume of his journals. If you’ve been following this newsletter closely you’ve already clicked through the links to articles citing Vallee’s journals and relating them to various recent events on those aforementioned subjects (Bigelow, Lazar, etc.).

The Anomaly Archives has acquired copies of all four volumes of Vallee’s Forbidden Science journals. We have copies of all four books in paperback version published by Anomalist Books. Years ago I donated my personal original edition hardcover copy of Volume One. My copies of Volumes Two and Three will be soon be donated. The Anomaly Archives also acquired an original hardcover edition of Volume Four, and it is an anomalous addition to the archives in that it does not have any printed spine information as it should. You can see from this photograph (right) that all other volumes have some sort of printed spine and when we inquired with other owners of this hardcover fourth volume edition, they asserted that there copies had a properly printed spine, like the rest of the volumes. We are pleased to have an anomalous copy of yet another fine book from one of Ufology’s most anomalous researcher. Why do I call him an “anomalous researcher”? Because most UFO lecturers claim to know that UFOs are ExtraTerrestrial craft but Vallee is more likely to say:

“I’m the only ufologist that doesn’t know what UFOs are.”

– Jacques Vallee on the Martin Willis Show – October 15th, 2019 (YouTube).

I first heard Vallee use that same basic line back in 1992 at the MUFON symposium in Albuquerque, NM. In his opening line (it is in the official printed proceedings) he said…

“I am quite happy to attend this conference but I am not quite sure why Walt Andrus invited me to speak to you: I may be the only person here who doesn’t know what UFOs are. Most ufologists know (or think they know) that UFOs are extraterrestrial vehicles, in other words, spacecraft from another planet.”

As with each issue for the past 2 years… there are many (often contradictory and controversial) news articles about the ongoing media campaign of “NIDS 2.0” … DeLonge’s To The Stars Academy of … leveraging the Pentagon’s covert Black Budget intellectual property as multi-level multi-media marketing efforts. Or however you’d personally like to characterize this current UAP-Era.

Mandela-Effects 

 

Miles’ Mandela-Moment:

“I remember the braces – they are the punchline to the scene” is how I and several of my deepest fan-boy friends have reacted to my introducing them to this memory-meme.

As much as I am a fan of PKD’s “revelation of the matrix” 1977 speech (RigorousIntuition Forums) most of the Mandela Effect examples leave me nodding my head saying, yep – memory is a tricky thing and most of these examples (especially the product logo/name ones) strike me as just plain old fallibility of memory as well as the social re-write nature of the “telephone game” in which stories are altered during the re-transmitting of the memes.

But there have been a couple that have stuck in my craw like this Moonraker Braces example as well as the “C-3PO had a silver leg in the original Star Wars” example! In both of those cases my fan-boy friends and I are left scratching our heads.

I too can imagine the dvd release including digitally modified elements (think of the CGI’d-out machine guns held by the Feds in Spielberg’s E.T.) … but, perhaps it really is just a trick of memory for the braces… my wife hadn’t seen Moonraker and when my friend and I watched the DVD blu-ray version (it’s what we had on hand) and went to that scene, my wife commented that perhaps the fact that Dolly was wearing glasses and pigtails was enough for most minds watching it at the time to imagine she had braces, like the overlay of a false “archetypal nerd image” on top of the perception. But that still does not sit well with me because I always remembered that (at least, in retrospect I believe I’ve always remembered it that way) as the POINT of the scene, especially with her SMILING to reveal her teeth AFTER the Jaws character reveals his mouthful of metal!

There have been some interesting storm and earthquake related news headlines of late in Texas or possibly related to the recent intense weather (or Fracking?) …

Book Of The Week

Forbidden Science – Volume Four:
Journals 1990-1999 – The Spring Hill Chronicles

by Jacques Vallee

Forbidden Science Volume Four

“A new book by Jacques Vallee is must reading for every serious student of UFOs and  paranormal phenomena and also – I would add – esotericist. His writings are always intellectually challenging with new data and inside views from the UFO research community. The Forbidden Science Journals are now into the fourth volume, covering the decade 1990- 1999, subtitled The Spring Hill Chronicles. The difference this time is that many diary entries deal with Vallee´s work as private investor and venture capitalist. Somewhat frustating to readers, like me, who is not fascinated by economy and high finance.”

SOURCE: Håkan Blomqvist´s Review

 

“Known principally as an investigator of the UFO phenomenon (Dimensions ) and a science fiction novelist, the French-born Vallee (now a resident of the U.S.) has also worked as a computer scientist in both academia and industry. Ufologists will not find the answers to all of their questions here, for although Vallee believes that UFOs exist, he has no idea just what they are. Therein lies the excellence of his dazzling diary: it offers a glimpse into the mind of a scientist who seems to challenge every preconception and established piety.”

SOURCE: Publishers Weekly

 

“With Jacques playing a central role in ufology since the 1960s, these books chart much of the history of ufology between 1960 and 1990 – anybody interested in the topic really should consider these required reading. So I was happy to find out that, while Jacques originally self-published Forbidden Science in a slightly expensive hardcover format, the good folks at Anomalist Books have recently re-released the three volumes in more affordable paperback editions:

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…

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

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.”

Greetings fellow Forteans, Anomalists, & UFOlks!

With UFOs still in the news after the finale of DeLonge’s / TTSA’s History Channel series UNIDENTIFIED and much media coverage of the “Storm Area-51” flashmob / meetup, it seemed appropriate to feature original Area-51 “publicist” Glenn Campbell’s work in both our Book-of-the-Week and Video-of-the-Week. Check them out below along with a wealth of other news stories in our News-Headlines section in this edition of the newsletter as well as many more articles you can find at our Anomaly Archives Flipboard page.
