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.

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!

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. You can always search our Anomaly-OPAC (Online Public Access Catalog). We invite you to drop by during those open hours, but we encourage you to…

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

February 16th, 2019 – Austin, Texas

 

“Technology is great – when it works!”

So so sorry for the delay in getting another edition out to all of our wonderful email newsletter subscribers. We have been struggling with website and email related issues for the past month and a half. We sent out a test email to subscribers back on February 3rd but about a fourth of our subscribers (pretty much everyone with a Yahoo, Gmail, or AOL email address) did not receive the test and it appears we’ve been blacklisted and have had no luck trying to fix the situation. And some of those who received the test email said it had gone into their spam / junk folders.

If you can help with these issues please contact me. Thank you!

In the meantime, we’re just forging ahead as best we can… if you receive this from a different email address than usual – ScientificAnomalyInstitute@Gmail.com for instance – it is likely because we could tell from the MailChimp reports that you didn’t get it through our normal method of sending the newsletter and we are trying to send it to you via the old-fashioned way… through an alternate Anomaly Archives email addy.

We will also be trying to post this edition to the website as we always do but in a faster fashion.

And did you know, you can subscribe to the website by using the “Subscribe to Blog via Email” function built into the website. If you go to any page on AnomalyArchives.org you can see a widget in the right-hand sidebar just below the Anomaly Archives logo that says:

“Subscribe to Blog via Email

Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email.”

… and then below that is a field to enter your email addy and then an orange “Subscribe” button.

We’re going to keep trying to fix this email newsletter problem but as they say, the show must go on! And what a show we are living through; we certainly live in “Interesting Times”. So many amazing news articles and new videos and books are coming out it hard to stay on top of it all.

Below you will find the now several weeks old email newsletter that was ready to send out quite some time ago … we’ve updated the news-links section but not added any more specific news items to the editorial below, though there are several amazing gems we hope you notice and take the time to discover more.

Well, until next time, keep watching the website and try to keep track of us in whatever way you can: our website, facebook, twitter, instagram, etc.

SMiles Lewis’ recent appearance on Erica Lukes’ UFO-CLASSIFIED radio show is now available in Audio MP3 and YouTube formats.

I had a great time talking with Erica on a wide variety of topics ranging from my personal approach to UFOs, the problem of speculative conspiracy theorizing (especially as it relates to mass-shooting events) as well as anonymity issues within the field of ufology.

Erica has recently launched her own archival effort with WAPA: Western Aerial Phenomena Archive there in Utah. You can find more about her and her work at UfoClassified.com and EricaLukes.com. you can listen to her show LIVE at this LINK HERE on the KCORradio.com website or listen to past shows in MP3 format and at her YouTube channel.

Video-of-the-Week:

We are excited to announce the triumphant return of new videos from our INACS partners; board president, Bob Price, has resumed producing archival videos of past INACS lecture events, beginning with its first event at our new downtown location from last May, 2018. This presentation features Ned Wolf discussing dowsing and radionics for personal health.

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

Book-of-the-Week:

This issue’s book of the week is by a longtime local friend of mine who is a PhD physicist. We met online back in the late 1990s through our mutual interest in sleep paralysis and related phenomena.

Sirley recently donated to INACS over 160 books from her personal library.

Next month (on Tuesday, February 19th) IONS Austin (Co-Sponsored by INACS) is hosting a presentation by Sirley on this subject at its next Meetup. Click the link for more details …

Book Of The Week

Self-Experiments with Consciousness and Hypnagogia:

A scientist’s personal exploration of consciousness at the threshold of sleep and beyond

by Sirley Marques Bonham, Ph.D.

Tom Campbell – noted Physicist and author of “My Big Toe” writes in the Foreword of Sirley’s new book .. “There are thousands of reports of psi events that have been experienced by credible individuals and competent researchers during the last two hundred years but none have developed an overarching model that explains everything (normal and paranormal)…. What is needed, what Dr. Bonham seeks is a new perspective, a new way of looking at reality that circumvents the materialistic perspective that has so completely dominated thinking in science as well as in Western culture generally.”

“This book tells about the author’s personal experience with subjective phenomena of the human mind and consciousness, with special emphasis on phenomena perceived at the threshold of sleep and wakefulness, known as hypnopompic and hypnogogic experiences (or in short “hypnagogia”), which she considers quite special, as it will allow a person to maintain awareness, or lucidity, while the physical body falls asleep, therefore having the chance to explore out-of-body experiences and lucid dreams. However, it is not all about out-of-body experiences or lucid dreams, as she tells about her personal experiences from her involvement with esoteric philosophy and the Brazilian spiritism, and discusses several special issues from the development of her knowledge on other subjects, like for example remote viewing, starting with her involvement with the Society for Scientific Exploration where she met with the first explorers and the initiators of remote viewing research. The author also improved her knowledge of the mind through her involvement with neuroscience, as well as psychological theories of cognition, and research on memory and learning. Her personal experiences also lead her to study the literature on the subject of bio-energetic phenomena (the so-called Kundalini phenomena) and other interesting areas that address the subjective phenomena of the mind in many forms. One important subject discussed is that of “sleep paralysis,” which can produce problematic hypnagogias. In fact she has published a scientific paper, along with Jean-Christophe Terrillon, on recurrent sleep paralysis, which has been widely referred in the literature on this subject, after its publication by the Journal of Scientific Exploration in 2001. This paper is included in the book as an appendix, due to its importance in helping people suffering from this condition. Finally, this book assesses the present panorama with personal subjective experiences in general, which the author strongly believes may produce important developments in the understanding of the mind and consciousness in general, consequently increasing the possibility of experiencing the worlds beyond the physical, or beyond death.”

Creating Vibrant Health with Dowsing and Radionics, Pt 1, featuring Ned Wolf

Sunday, May 27th, 2018, 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm
Presented at INACS’ new office and conference space:
55 North IH-35, Austin, TX 78702, 2nd fl Training Rm

In this presentation, we explore the ancient art of dowsing as well as the dynamics of creating vibrant health and healing with dowsing and radionics. In so doing, we expand our awareness of the true power of healing that resides within each of us. Radionics is a healing technique in which our natural intuitive faculties are used both to discover the energetic disturbances underlying illness and to encourage the return of an energetic field that supports good health. In trained hands, dowsing and radionic treatment can be helpful in enhancing wellness and treating a wide range of conditions.

As beings of energy, we can benefit greatly from mastering the ancient art of dowsing. As a tool, dowsing is an effective discipline for melding our intellectual with our intuitive consciousness. This process enhances both types of consciousness and through it we become more tuned into the messages that originate from the subtle realms of reality.

This ancient practice of dowsing can also been used to expand our perceptual mechanisms and to replace superstitious and distorted thinking with clear perceptions of the many layers of reality in which we exist.

About our speaker: Ned Wolf is an author, counselor, natural healer, and musician. Ned has written a number of books, including Awaken Your Power To Heal, published in 1999. That was followed by a book of poetry called Sailing On A Banshee Wind and Floraporna, a collection of macrophotography featuring Western Australian flowers. In his latest works, the Nandia Trilogy, Ned illuminates through a magical adventure how each of us is here to express our unique contribution to humankind’s collective growth and evolution.

In his healing work, Ned uses vibrational therapies that are produced radionically, including Reiki energy, as well as rebirthing breathwork.

When Ned was eight years old, a water dowser showed him how to find water using twin L-shaped dowsing rods. Later, he was trained in the use of a pendulum and today he teaches classes not only in medicinal dowsing, but also Reiki counseling and the use of mediation skills.

Ned Wolf lives in Northern Arizona on the banks of twin lakes that overlook a national forest. In his spare time, Ned is a tennis enthusiast, practices Tai Chi, pursues his passion for playing and singing music and enjoys caring for the wide variety of wildlife that come calling at his back door. An avid student of Jane Roberts’ Seth books, he enjoys dreamtime work as well as creating opportunities for himself and others to expand their creative expressions.

Investigating Mediums with Julie Beischel
New Thinking Allowed
with Jeffrey Mishlove

“Julie Beischel, PhD, is the co-founder and Director of Research at the Windbridge Research Center, a nonprofit dedicated to performing rigorous scientific research and creating educational materials on the topics of dying, death, and what comes next. She received her doctorate in Pharmacology and Toxicology with a minor in Microbiology and Immunology. She is author of Investigating Mediums. Her website is windbridge.org.

Here she describes her research approach, working with mediums whom she treats as partners in her investigations. She discusses her quintuple-blind protocols that have provided clear evidence that mediums are able to provide information regarding deceased persons about whom they had no previous knowledge. She also refers to many interpersonal factors involved in studying mediums. Additionally she discusses physiological factors. “

 Lyrics Below

“Official music video for the single “Cloudbusting” written, produced and performed by the British singer Kate Bush. It was the second single released from her no.1 1985 album Hounds of Love. “Cloudbusting” peaked at no.20 in the UK Singles Chart. The music video, directed by Julian Doyle, was conceived by Terry Gilliam and Kate Bush. The video features Canadian actor Donald Sutherland playing the role of Wilhelm Reich, and Bush playing the part of his young son, Peter.”

From the Anomaly Archives August 2004 eNews:

My Favorite Songs About Anomalous Phenomena, UFOs and General Weirdness

The other day, I pointed out to a dear friend how British vocalist Kate Bush, beyond writing and singing songs about paranormal topics, is rumored to have been a real life “ufo investigator” over in Great Britain. We were discussing the Kate Bush songs Cloudbusting (based on a dream by Wilhelm Reich’s son) and Experiment IV which I was bringing up because of a recent news article on Israel’s use of supposedly non-lethal sound weapons for riot control. See sidebar below right …

While discussing Kate Bush’s inspiration for her Wilhelm Reich song, my friend discovered that both Kate Bush and Patti Smith are authors of songs inspired by Peter Reich’s A Book of Dreams. Patti Smith recorded a song called Birdland that is “about Wilhelm Reich coming back for his son in a UFO“.

Over the years all my friends with interest in subjects like UFOs, Aliens, Ghosts etc. have collected and shared a vast array of music archiving the various musical mileus that have been touched by the Saucers and their paranormal occupants.

I still dream of orgonon
I wake up crying
You’re making rain
And you’re just in reach
When you and sleep escape me
You’re like my yo-yo
That glowed in the dark
What made it special
Made it dangerous
So I bury it
And forget
But every time it rains
You’re here in my head
Like the sun coming out
Ooh, I just know that something good is going to happen
And I don’t know when
But just saying it could even make it happen
On top of the world
Looking over the edge
You could see them coming
You looked too small
In their big, black car
To be a threat to the men in power
I hid my yo-yo
In the garden
I can’t hide you
From the government
Oh, god, daddy
I won’t forget
‘Cause every time it rains
You’re here in my head
Like the sun coming out
Ooh, I

Book Of The Week

Thieves in the Night: 
A Brief History of Supernatural Child Abductions

by Joshua Cutchin

“Folklore has always warned of hidden dangers lurking in the shadows, otherworldly beings who seek to steal that which parents hold most dear. In the first book dedicated solely to the subject, Joshua Cutchin traces this primal concern from antiquity to the modern era—beginning with worldwide tales of faeries, changelings, spirits, demons, and monsters, before examining more contemporary phenomena such as Sasquatch kidnappings, alien abductions, and mysterious disappearances in national parks. Folklore, medicine, science, and spirituality come together for a uniquely scholarly perspective on the thieves in the night.”

Lyrics: Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft

Songwriters: John Woloschuk / Terry Draper

In your mind you have capacities, you know
To telepath messages through the vast unknown
Please close your eyes and concentrate
With every thought you think

Upon the recitation we’re about to sing
Calling occupants of interplanetary craft
Calling occupants of interplanetary, most extraordinary craft
Calling occupants of interplanetary craft
Calling occupants of interplanetary craft
Calling occupants of interplanetary, most extraordinary craft

You’ve been observing our Earth
And we’d like to make
A contact with you
We are your friends

Calling occupants of interplanetary craft
Calling occupants of interplanetary, ultra emissaries
We’ve been observing your Earth
And one night we’ll make
A contact with you
We are your friends

Calling occupants of interplanetary, quite extraordinary craft
And please come in peace, we beseech you
Only our love we will teach them
Our Earth may never survive
So do come, we beg you
Please, interstellar policeman
Oh won’t you give us a sign
Give us a sign
That we’ve reached you
Oh do

With your mind you have ability to form
And transmit thought energy far beyond the norm
You close your eyes, you concentrate
Together, that’s the way
To send the message we declare World Contact Day

Calling occupants of interplanetary craft
Calling occupants of interplanetary craft
Calling occupants of interplanetary, most extraordinary craft

Ah ah ah ahh
Ah ah ah ahh
Ah ah ah ahh
Calling occupants
Calling occupants
Calling occupants of interplanetary, anti-adversary craft

Anomaly Archives Presents… 

Maya Shamanism: The Transmutation of Sustenance
by Dr. Barbara MacLeod

Sunday, September 23rd – 3pm at The Anomaly Archives

The Anomaly Archives is proud to support the Mysterious Ancient Civilizations meetup group in presenting this lecture from Austin’s own Mayan language expert, Dr. Barbara MacLeod.

Maya Shamanism: The Transmutation of Sustenance

Dr. Barbara MacLeod takes us on a journey of the metaphysical ideology of the Classic Maya royal court through translations of hieroglyphs found on cups that were from the Maya royal dynasty.

“The ancient Maya practiced state shamanism, in which kings and their families engaged in conjuring deities and ancestors and made offerings of their own blood to feed the earth. War captives were common offerings as well. Mythological scenes on royal drinking-cups placed in tombs feature serpent-deities conjured amid altered states of consciousness, and it is now possible to speculate on the entheogenic plants used. Sometimes the conjurors themselves were deities.

This practice was fundamental to Maya kingship and became fossilized and codified in the form of the “ceremonial serpent bar” worn by kings at the accessions at major events in the calendar. Infants were also sacrificed, although likely not those of royalty; another mythic theme on these cups depicts the sacrifice of a human baby who becomes an infant jaguar as he transitions from one world to the next. All of this is orchestrated by k’awiil–the metaphysical manifestation of lightning.

This is an origin myth, archaic at the time these vases were painted. It functioned as a charter for the ongoing reciprocity between humans and gods required for the perpetuation of the royal dynasty, the fecundity of the earth, and the reliability of the rains.” Dr. Barbara MacLeod

If the cups could talk, oh the stories we would hear!

We hope you’ll join us on a journey of myths, ceremonies, royalty, and sacrifices of the ancient Maya civilization.

Meeting to be held in second floor conference room. Access into building is limited, door person will be at the front door to allow guests to enter. Door may be locked 10 minutes after meeting starts, please try to arrive before 3pm.

Suggested donation $5 in support of Anomaly Archives.

Video-of-the-Week

Recently I’ve had the chance to catch-up on a number of wonderful videos produced by Jason Charbonneau at his Think Anomalous YouTube Channel. There are so many great videos to watch there like the one about The Voronezh UFO Landing, 1989 and Hieronyma and the Incubus – Sleep Paralysis, Sexuality, and Anomalous Entity Encounters, or classic monster encounters like the Flatwoods “Monster,” 1952 and Kelly Hopkinsville Encounter, The Goblin “Invasion” of 1955 and important historic cases from outside North America such as Italy’s Zanfretta Abductions, 1978-1981 and Sweden’s Abduction of Jacob Jacobsson, 1759. Of course, the video that would make me decide to feature it as our Video of the Week is about my favorite researcher … Jacques Vallée.

 


Book-of-the-Week

For this week’s book, we’re going Atlantean with one of our many books on the subject of this mythic ancient civilization. We have so many books in our Girard Collection focused on this topic but this particular title stands out due both to its being an autographed copy of a small original print-run but also the strange binding that features patterned cloth – of which there were several different prints used as one can see looking over the other rare copies for sale online. Also, you have to admire the artwork used on later traditional print-runs that feature a dynamic painting by the author. (See below).

 


New Meetup Group

We’ve resurrected our Anomaly Archives Meetup.com Group and will soon begin posting information about upcoming get-togethers here at the archive and lending library… and BEYOND!!

 


Volunteering at the Archives

Folks have been helping us finish setting up our new shelving, organizing the collections, tweaking the online catalog and more. In the near future we’ll need many more volunteers to help us staff the Anomaly Archives so that it can finally begin having traditional weekday business hours. If you think you have what it takes to help the Anomaly Archives achieve its operational goals, please give founder SMiles Lewis a call (512-842-9046) or send an email (contact@anomalyarchives.org).

Jacques Vallée, UFOs, and the Case Against Aliens

  Think Anomalous

  Published on Jan 22, 2017
“For more than 20 years after the flying saucer frenzy of the late 1940s, the Extraterrestrial Hypothesis (ETH) remained the default explanation for UFOs. Jacques Vallée, a French astronomer and ufologist, was the first to challenge the ETH, and he followed the UFO data towards some unorthodox and fascinating conclusions.
