Anomalous Archives in Texas

Opening of the Archives of the Impossible @RiceUniversity
March 3-6, 2022

Greetings Friends and Supporters of the Anomaly Archives!

It’s been nearly 6 months since our last eNews installment. I apologize for this long delay but, as with many folks during this pandemic, it’s been a tremendously difficult time for me (SMiles Lewis) in my personal life, in my day-job life, and of course, with my life’s-work, my passion-project, these Anomaly Archives. The loss of loved ones and the (hopefully temporary) loss of ground towards one’s most-loved endeavors is an ongoing source of grief and challenge for me and the Anomaly Archives board of directors and its volunteers. While there has been no change in the hiatus status of the Anomaly Archives collections laying in storage in South Austin, the long-awaited grand opening of another Texas-based anomalous archive is finally happening!

I’m proud and excited to be a panelist representing the independent nonprofit Anomaly Archives as part of the public opening of this important new anomalous archive at Rice University. Follow the links and information below to find out more about this Tuesday’s zoom session that is the first in a free series of preparatory webinars setting the stage for the March 3rd through 6th, grand opening event.

I probably first learned of the Archives of the Impossible at Rice University in late 2018 or early 2019. It was incredibly exciting to discover its existence, piecemeal, before any overt public announcement. I think I first found information about it while searching the PCHP (Preserving the Historical Collections of Parapsychology) directory and noticing the entry for Rice University. At that point I think it was still being referred to as the “GEM Archives” because of its Gnosticism, Esotericism, and Mysticism (GEM) certificate program connection. Soon thereafter I heard Diana Walsh Pasulka alluding to the formation of the archive in an interview she did on Podcast UFO. Within a year of learning about the new Rice University / Fondren Library special collection, and piecing together part of its origin story, I was invited to participate. It may have taken two years since first getting wind of its existence but in a month’s time I’ll finally get to visit it in person AND be a part of its opening events!

Back in the April 15th, 2019 edition of the eNewsletter I mused on the sea-change in academic anomalistics while referencing the Archives of the Impossible at 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) … We’ve also seen the recent … 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.”

Later that year in our October 24th, 2019 edition of the eNewsletter – as we edged towards the great unknown awaiting us in the pandemic future of 2020 – we linked to the announcement of the opening Jeff Kripal’s, Opening of the Archives of the Impossible at Rice University, to launch in late October, early November of 2020:

Archives in the News

[Grand Opening Originally Scheduled for Oct 29 – Nov 1, 2020]

We are delighted and honored to have been invited to be a panel participant at this unique event celebrating the opening of this important and unique archive. The 3 upcoming free webinars coming up this Tuesday the 8th, then the following Tuesday the 15th, and another on Thursday the 24th (see below for details) make the next 3 weeks in February of 2022 into an amazing lead in to this grand opening event for Jeff Kripal’s and Rice University’s Archives-Of-The-Impossible!

We hope you all will show your interest and support for this amazing event. It is an important milestone along the journey of creating a more respectable foundation for the exploration of these strange surrealities found within the raw living experiencing of folklore and myth which make up the storyline of humanity’s long-term contact with seemingly Alien Others.

Below in the rest of this long-overdue eNews installment is part of the introductory message from Professor Kripal that you can see at the official ImpossibleArchives.Rice.Edu website (where you can also see the event schedule and register for all of the events) along with the list of Plenary Speakers as well as links to the upcoming Pre-Event Webinars to prime your psychic pump for the main event.

After that you’ll find the usual long list of latest Anomaly News Headlines that we post to our Flipboard Magazine, as well as link to the interview with did with Professor Jeffrey Kripal for the 2020 Streamathon Emergency Fundraiser.

Finally, for a little humor and levity, check out this old Rice University archive flashback about a UFO-Hoax perpetrated by students in 1966.

Jeffrey Kripal Welcomes You To The Archives Of The Impossible

“The intellectual gravity of the gifts of Vallée, Strieber, and May created a kind of “black hole” effect among those who knew. Soon, others were attracted by their gravitational pull and approached us with their own offers of generosity. These individuals included Brenda Denzler and Diana Pasulka, two scholars of religion with extensive ethnographic and interviewing experience with contactees; Robert Fuller, an accomplished psychologist of religion whose father had collected almost every issue of Fate magazine, whose wonderful early pulp fiction covers and real-life stories has functioned since 1948 as a kind of Reader’s Digest of the American paranormal; Richard Haines, a long-time NASA scientist, aviation expert, and author of CE-5: Close Encounters of the Fifth Kind, with a very considerable trove of scientific research on UFO sightings; Larry Bryant, an employee of the Pentagon who spent much of his life collecting ufological materials and engaging in activist and legal work around the Freedom of Information Act and disclosure movement (Larry and his daughter sent us 102 boxes); and Stewart Alexander, a leading physical medium from the UK who has been working for over forty years and manifesting various extraordinary abilities and physical phenomena.

At present, we estimate that the total archival collection stands at somewhere well north of 100,000 items, and that this is probably much too modest of a figure. We are professionally archiving the material as fast as we can, with significant help from Ph.D. students and the professional staff of Woodson Research Center. When complete, these Archives of the Impossible will easily constitute one of the largest collections of its kind in the world and almost certainly the largest at an American research university. We look forward to the days when we can welcome researchers and students from around the world into these boxes, folders, and files. The truth may or may not be out there, as one popular American television series had it, but it is almost certainly in here, somewhere. Please come and help us find it.”

His new book will come out this spring, entitled The Superhumanities: Historical Precedents, Moral Objections, New Realities (Chicago, 2022), where he intuits an emerging new order of knowledge that can engage in robust moral criticism but also affirm the superhuman or nonhuman dimensions of our histories, cultures, and futures. His full body of work can be seen at http://jeffreyjkripal.com

Jacques F. Vallée, PhD, is the founder of Documatica Research, LLC, San Francisco, California. An information scientist with a background in astrophysics and AI, he served as one of the architects of social networking on the early Internet, and as a founder of five international venture capital funds in Silicon Valley, including NASA’s Red Planet Capital.

In addition to television documentaries on religion and culture for CBS News and PBS, myriad magazine articles and newspaper work, he has authored two memoirs, Places Left Unfinished at the Time of Creation (1999 National Book Award Finalist), The Farthest Home is in An Empire of Fire (2010), and a book of poems, Songs Older Than Any Known Singer (2007). He teaches Writing and Mestizo Cultural Studies in the Honors College at University of Texas San Antonio. He is currently working on the last installment in his trilogy of memoirs, and collaborating with Chicano rocker Alejandro Escovedo on a “mythic” memoir of the musician’s storied life in punk rock and beyond.

Edwin C. May, PhD, is the president and founder of the Laboratories for Fundamental Research, Palo Alto, California. Formerly, he was a scientist with the U.S. Government’s secret ESP program popularly known as Star Gate from 1976-1995, and was the director of that program from 1985 to 1995. He is the author of several articles in the nuclear physics literature, many papers in the technical journals of parapsychology, and over 300 technical final reports on ESP to the government. He received his doctorate in experimental nuclear physics from the University of Pittsburgh in 1968.

Sebastiano De Filippi (B.A., M.A., Ph.D. candidate) is an Italian-Argentinian musician, author and scholar. He studied social sciences at the Buenos Aires and Argentine Catholic universities.

Wald is currently working on a monograph entitled Human Being After Genocide, which considers the “mythistory” of humanity that emerged from efforts to articulate an “underlying spirit of unity” that could sacralize “the human” in the wake of two world wars and a proliferation of scientific and technological developments that challenged conventional notions of life.

Feb. 24: Hussein Ali Agrama – Webinar Registration

Hussein Ali Agrama is an Associate Professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Chicago. His previous research and writing focused on religion and secularism in the Islamic Middle East.

Greetings Friends and Supporters of the Anomaly Archives!

It’s been many months since we last sent out an installment of this email newsletter. Despite the few short months of a seeming return to the “old normal,” the situation has reverted back to pre-vaccine lockdown conditions given the current Covid Delta variant surge here in Austin. Our collections are still in storage and we are continuing our search for a new affordable location. Meanwhile, we are hard at work behind the scenes as time allows.

We are excited to announce our participation in the above linked FOLKLORE IN THE ARCHIVES event being put on by the University of North Texas. Our presentation is scheduled for this Friday, August 27th, at 11:35 am. This event’s presentations feature short folklore talks from archivists working at many different institutions presenting materials and information on “cryptids, urban legends, superstitions, local lore, hauntings and ghosts, UFOs, and more”! This is a free virtual event and we hope you’ll consider attending.

We hope to have updates on the status of our efforts to obtain a new physical space and to resume our regular YouTube live streaming show (Anomaly-NOW!) soon. Stay tuned!

[NOTE: This special screening of TIMMM has been cancelled]
[NOTE: This special screening of TIMMM has been cancelled]

Back in about 1990 – when I was fresh out of high school – I had a decent amount of money burning a hole in my wallet. I spent it on an idea floated to me by one of my most creative filmmaker friends. He wrote and directed the script that we’ve often referred to as Austin’s SciFi-Horror SLACKER – a sort of Kentucky Fried Movie meets Amazon Women On The Moon. Our low budget short was intended as a demo reel we’d shop around as a sample of what we could do with almost no money – hoping someone would give us MORE money to produce an actually good film. It didn’t work – the film was rejected by everybody we sent it to. We never had an official public showing of it – having only small private gathering screenings with various groups from the cast. So this is an extremely rare opportunity to witness a strange anomalous artifact from the vaults of SMiles Lewis’ personal video collection. Like some mysterious VHS tape discovered in an old VCR bought at a random pawn shop. Through the haze and static of a low-res “copy-of-a-copy” videotape, one can almost make out the weird visage of many old Austin haunts now long gone.

WE NEED A NEW HOME!

Recently our landlord informed us that they are not extending an invitation to renew our lease at our current location. We had hoped to be able to stay at the current location for as long as possible, or at least another year. However, the landlord, itself a nonprofit, has also been hit hard by the pandemic and is having to make its own tough decisions and that has included not renewing leases when its tenants’ current lease terms expire; this includes another nonprofit that has been there for 20 years.

Three years ago, our current location was recommended to us by one of our email newsletter subscribers. We hope that perhaps one of you reading this now might have another good location opportunity you are aware of and that you will share it with us. We’d prefer something with its own entrance, with good parking, centrally located (but preferably in South or East Austin / south of Koenig Lane aka 2222), 800-1200 square feet for no more than about $1,200 per month total. Even better are locations with utilities included in that pricing. If you have leads on good inexpensive location options for lease, please reach out to us via email at Contact@AnomalyArchives.org or leave the information in a voicemail at (512) 842-9046.

The Good News… 

Thanks to all of you who have donated to our fundraiser – whether here via GoFundMe, or via our Facebook Fundraiser campaign page or discreetly via PayPal or other channels – we have officially reach the halfway point of $10,000 towards our total goal of $20,000! We are tremendously humbled by everyone’s amazing generosity. Thank you! We still have a long way to go towards our total goal – and we have 3 more Saturday Streamathons to go before the end of the year and the end of this emergency fundraiser. Thanks again for all your support!

The Bad News…

Last week our landlord informed us that they are not extending an invitation to renew our lease at our current location. We had hoped to be able to stay at the current location for as long as possible, or at least another year. However, the landlord, itself a nonprofit, has also been hit hard by the pandemic and is having to make its own tough decisions and that has included not renewing leases when its tenants’ current lease terms expire; this includes another nonprofit that has been there for 20 years.

COMING UP THIS SATURDAY, December 12th, at 1pm CST. This FREE STREAMATHON EVENT SERIES continues and is being held every Saturday until the end of 2020. We are raising funds towards our $20,000 annual budget to ensure our continued survival into 2021 and beyond. We’re drawing together researchers from all corners of the Esoterica realms: Anomalistics, Cryptozoology, Forteana, Parapsychology, and Ufology. We’ll be streaming many hours of great content covering these and other fields of inquiry. We’ll be sharing a sort of “Fabulous Fortean Film Festival” evening, Plus Music and MORE! All in an effort to raise funds for our 501(c)3 nonprofit community organization to survive the circumstances created by this terrible Covid-Crisis.

Zelia Edgar – “Orb Phenomenon As A Cross-Field Anomaly” – High strangeness slipping into John Keel territory, just what are the orbs on your camera roll?

Website / YouTube / Radio-Show (On-Hiatus)

“A lifelong Wisconsin resident, I was born in Green Bay, the state’s first city. My family is from Southwestern Wisconsin, and the folklore of that region was a strong influence on my upbringing. I was brought up with a deep regard for the history and mythology, not only of Wisconsin, but the world over.

Starting with an interest in flesh and blood cryptozoology, my research moved through spectrology and UFOlogy into its current scope. Every aspect of the paranormal is equally intriguing to me, and cases that transcend the boundaries of seemingly separate types of phenomena are of special interest. Seeking out the patterns that underlie these many manifestations in an attempt to pin down some unifying quality is my goal as a paranormal researcher, and my YouTube channel, JustAnotherTinFoilHat, is an expression of this goal.”

 

Ken Gerhard – “Loch Ness Monster and other Aquatic Cryptids”

Featuring Dr. CS Matthews, Stephanie Quick, Ben Roylance and SMiles Lewis
Saturday, August 8th at 2pm CST

Watch Live on… Our YouTube.com Channel
… or …  Our Facebook Page

The Anomaly Archives is hosting a panel discussion on the life and work of this truly unique visual artist, playwright/poet, UFO experiencer / researcher and clairvoyant psychic who used the tapestry of her life as an experimental space in which to deepen her understanding of the process of contact with the uncanny. An accomplished artist and writer, her papers on the physics of synchronicity and other paranormal events were presented at academic conferences while she also had many articles published by UFO research organizations.

Her book “Congratulations! The UFO Reality”, written in the mid-1970’s, concentrated on the effects of these encounters on witnesses, an aspect of these events which in recent times is gaining more attention.

With panelists Dr. C.S. Matthews, author of “Mysterious Beauty: Living with the Paranormal in the Hudson Valley”; Ben Roylance, poet and EMS researcher, Stephanie Quick of the blog “Ghost Dog is a Mystery Box” and host SMiles Lewis, founder of Anomaly Archives.

We are very excited to be hosting this Online / Virtual Meetup webcast event and hope you all can join us for this month’s “Second Saturday,” Monthly Meetup, tomorrow, August 8th, at 2pm CDT.

Anomaly Archives Adventure Club Monthly Meetups in 2020

New Monthly Meetup Second-Saturdays in 2020
MARCH MEETUP CANCELLED!

PLEASE STAY TUNED FOR UPDATES ON MEETUP

SCHEDULING IN THESE UNCERTAIN TIMES.

Out of an abundance of caution regarding the current Covid-19 pandemic (and for other personal reasons as well) we are cancelling our March Public Meetup. We may reschedule this event and/or hold it virtually via a live-stream on our YouTube channel. We will keep you all posted about our upcoming meetup schedule. Thank you.

– SMiles Lewis

New Monthly Meetup Second-Saturdays in 2020

The Anomaly Archives hosts a monthly public meeting the Second Saturday of each month. Meetings are 3pm-5pm so guests will have an hour before and an hour after to peruse the library and archives outside of the meeting times. The library will be open throughout its regular Saturday Open Hours from 2-6pm (so long as we have enough volunteers to staff it during the meeting). Sign up for our Meetup.com group for regular updates.

These monthly meetings are an opportunity for the public to learn more about the Anomaly Archives as well as for existing Lending-Library-Members to meet and discuss the latest Anomalous, Fortean, Mysterious, Paranormal, UFO, and Weird News Headlines (Check out our Flipboard online magazine links) and Events! Each meeting will feature some of the latest and most interesting anomalous news with insights gleaned from the Anomaly Archives collection of rare materials and its network of researchers.

Every other meeting (even numbered months) will feature a brief presentation and discussion of the Anomaly ADVENTURE Club! Those meetings will be lead by “Viktor Criterion” and “Einida Ecxs” of Super Fun Adventure Quest Time (SFAQT).

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

 

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.

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