About That Newly-Exposed Government UFO Project

Over at Mysterious Universe, you can find my take on that story which recently got so many people in Ufology excited, but which completely underwhelmed me. You'll see why.

And, there's a follow-up article on it, too, which ties in with my Final Events book.

Mothman and the Collapse of the Silver Bridge

And, in a third new article I address the issue of Mothman and the collapse of Point Pleasant, West Virginia's Silver Bridge in December 1967.

Here's how the story begins...

In less than two months we’ll see an anniversary of tragic proportions. It was on the evening of December 15, 1967 that Point Pleasant, West Virginia’s Silver Bridge plunged into the churning waters of the Ohio River. Forty-six people lost their lives when their vehicles plummeted into the water. Forty-four bodies were recovered; two were never found. It was a terrible disaster for the close-knit community of the small city. And, of course – as anyone who knows their paranormal history will be aware – this was the same time-frame and location where the legendary Mothman was seen. It’s not surprising that many have suggested a connection between the collapse of the Silver Bridge and the presence of Mothman.

 The reason why I am mentioning this right now, is that I’m sure as the 50th anniversary of the disaster looms larger and larger, just about everyone and his brother will be addressing the matter. So, I thought I would jump in a little bit early, and share my thoughts on this matter. But, first, a bit of background information on the lead-up to the Silver Bridge affair. It was in late 1966 that sightings of Mothman began to be reported around Point Pleasant. The mysterious and sinister thing became infamous for its fiery red eyes and its large, powerful wings. No wonder it was given the name with which it is, today, still recognized by, a half a century after things began.

Is Bigfoot A Deadly Mimic?

That's the question I ask in a new article, which starts like this:

One of the lesser known aspects of the Bigfoot phenomenon is the reported ability of the creatures to mimic the distressing cries of a human baby. Almost certainly, this is done to try and lure concerned people deep into the woods. Of course, the big question is: why? We could speculate that the Bigfoot are on the hunt for a tasty meal or several – namely us. After all, most people, if they heard an abandoned baby crying in the woods, would quickly seek out the baby and bring it to safety. Perhaps the Bigfoot know this and, as a result, are not beyond finding ingenious and sinister ways of drawing us to them – and for the worst outcome possible.

The Return of the Mad Gasser of Mattoon - Maybe

Over at Mysterious Universe, there's a new article from me on the strange saga of what became known as the Mad Gasser of Mattoon.

It's a story that dates back to the 1940s and which concerns a dark-clothed character who invaded homes in the dead of night and unleashed a paralyzing gas in the city of Mattoon, Illinois, USA. Yes, really!

So, why do I mention all of this now?

Well, because the Mad Gasser just might be back...

Roswell: Do We Know More Than The Government?

That's the title of a new article from me, which starts as follows (and which you can find here):

That may sound like a strange – even bizarre – question to ask. But, stay with me. There’s absolutely no doubt that something very strange happened on the Foster Ranch, Lincoln County, New Mexico in the summer of 1947. There is intriguing witness testimony which supports the idea that people were warned not to talk about what they knew – as in ever. There were, allegedly, death threats made too. Tales even exist of people being murdered to prevent the truth of Roswell from surfacing outside of the secret world of government. But, that was then – seventy years ago. What about now? That’s the important question. It’s a question which gets to the heart of the title of this article.

 Whenever elements of the U.S. Government, such as the GAO (the Government Accountability Office) or the Air Force have anything to say about Roswell, Ufologists typically scream “Lies!” “Disinformation!” I saw this, and still remember it, when back in the 1990s the Air Force published its reports on Roswell. One surfaced in 1994 and was soon followed by a massive report in excess of 1,000 pages in length. The Air Force concluded that, most likely, what came down on the Foster Ranch was a huge “Mogul” balloon array, designed to monitor for early Soviet atomic bomb tests. Then, in July 1997 – which was the 50th anniversary of Roswell – the Air Force published another report on Roswell. This one was on the controversial matter of the bodies found at Roswell – which the Air Force suggested were probably crash-test dummies. Ufology was in a state of uproar, pointing figures at what it considered to be a bunch of liars. But, those same ufologists were wrong.

Philip K. Dick - Synchronicities, the Paranormal, and Much More

Available now is the new book from Timothy Green Beckley: The Matrix Control System of Philip K. Dick. This is an excellent book, which includes an Introduction from PKD's widow, Tessa Dick. Not one to be missed!

Here's what the publisher has to say about the book:

You Have Doubtlessly Seen The Movies Based Upon What We Have All Come to Believe Are Exceptionally Brilliant Science Fiction Novels Written By The Late Philip K. Dick . . .
But what you probably didn’t know is that their creator was living out some of the same incredibly bizarre scenarios that he wrote about. One can easily compare Philip to the character played by Arnold Schwarzenegger in “Total Recall,” who found himself in a parallel universe on a faraway planet, despite the fact that he was only supposed to be hooked up in a laboratory to a machine that creates realistic dream-like images. Which reality is the character really living in?
At a sci-fi press conference held in France in 1977, Philip tried to explain some of his bewildering thoughts about the existence of a parallel or self-contained – Matrix-like – universe created by “someone” who has the ability to alter the course of time and our concept of reality:
“People claim to remember past lives,” Philip told the throng of reporters and fans. “I claim to remember a different – very different – present life. I know of nobody who has ever made this claim before but I rather suspect that my experience is not unique. What perhaps is unique is my willingness to talk about it. We are living in a computer-programmed reality and the only clue we have to it is when some variable is changed and some alteration in our reality occurs . . . and because of this a variable WAS changed – reprogrammed as it were – and an alternative world branched off.”
Drawing on the masterful mind of creative genius Philip K. Dick we offer up dozens of his personal experiences, as well as those of others in the UFO and paranormal fields, where synchronicities seem to abound. This is NOT science fiction. This is a universe that cannot be so easily grasped or explained.
The well-known collector of scientific curiosities, Charles Fort, is often quoted as having said: “The Earth is a farm. We are someone’s property.” He likened our condition to being movable pieces on a chess board.
“There is no doubt that we are under some sort of surveillance and that an ‘invisible hand’ has the ability to carve out our existence and ‘interfere’ in our daily lives by creating a variety of bizarre ‘play scripts’ that to some may seem like pure ‘coincidences.’” Or so says pop culture paranormalist Tim Beckley, who notes that “Synchronicities are not just random occurrences but are laid out before us by some sort of synchronicity command post, which ably demonstrates their mastery or control over us hapless earthlings.”
Drawing on the masterful mind of creative genius Philip K. Dick (some to this day perceive him to have been a total “mad man”) we offer up dozens of his personal experiences, as well as those of others in the UFO and paranormal fields, where synchronicities seem to abound. Beckley and co-author Sean Casteel lay out a plausible scenario to “explain” the intricate workings of what has been dubbed “The Synchronicity Command Board,” or “Earth Coincidence Control Office,” as so aptly named by the brilliant American marine biologist and neurologist, Dr. John C. Lilly.
THE MATRIX CONTROL SYSTEM OF PHILIP K. DICK – AND THE PARANORMAL SYNCHRONICITIES OF TIMOTHY GREEN BECKLEY has been compiled by Tim Beckley and Sean Casted with an Introduction by Tessa Dick and added contributions by such esteemed researchers as: Philip K. Dick, Tim Swartz, Nick Redfern, Diane Tessman, Hercules Invictus, Brad Steiger, Brent Raynes, Cynthia Cirile, Valarie D. Orazio, and others who have come to conclude we are living in a computerized simulation, and like PKD acknowledge the existence of the Matrix.

"Haunted By A Phantom Ape"

That's the title of a new article from me at Mysterious Universe...

And here's how it begins...

On several occasions, I have written here at Mysterious Universe about the phenomenon of what I call “anomalous apes.” Most cryptozoologists are of the opinion that the likes of Bigfoot, the Yeti of the Himalayas, the Yeren of China, and the Yowie of Australia are wholly flesh and blood animals of a presently unknown type. There are, however, more than a few reports of such creatures that seem far more phantom-like in nature. It’s important to note that there is nothing new about anomalous apes. To demonstrate that, we have to turn our attentions to a certain book written back in 1954.

Elliott O’Donnell (1872-1965) was an author of many books on the world of the supernatural. They included Ghostly Phenomena (1913), Confessions of a Ghost Hunter (1928), and Strange Cults & Secret Societies of Modern London (1934). And, in 1954, there was Dangerous Ghosts. It’s this book to which we need to turn our attentions. In its pages O’Donnell said to his audience that “…Mrs. James, a reader of my books, told me, when I was living in London, an extraordinary story of Mr. Ward, one of her girlhood friends, who was haunted by a phantom ape.”

The Beast of Bala Lake

 Does a massive fish lurk in the waters of Bala Lake, Wales? Probably, yes!

Twin Peaks...

Well, I watched the last 2 episodes of the new series of Twin Peaks last night. What did I think of it? It was OK (just about...). 

But, just like when your favorite band reforms, or when The X-Files came back, I could have done without TP returning. 

I loved the original when I watched back in 1990/1991. But, I watched the new series more out of curiosity than anything else. And, to see how they all looked after 27 years. 

There were a few good moments, a few hilarious ones, but overall? Meh. 

I thought that the whole Dougie thing got way dragged out over far too many episodes. 

And it seemed to me that a lot of the oddness was simply added because the creators of the new series thought the audience would expect it. 

In other words, I thought a lot of the oddness came across as forced. I'm glad I watched it (I think...), but please let it rest now. 

And, don't bring anymore X-Files back, either. Enough is enough.
