The future is FUTURO

I've been thinking alot about what the future holds as far as housing and transportation go. I remember being twelve and being falsely mislead to believe there would be flying cars in my future. Well, I turn 30 in a few days and there are no flying cars parked along my street. And as for the homes I thought would exist, well take a look at the FUTURO.

Seas Serpents: Animal or Machine?

Loren Coleman has posted an account from 1919 in which four hunters shot at a sea serpent in Pyramid lake. The creature seemed impervious to bullets.
The account is pretty old and guns aren't what they used to be, but this set me to thinking. Was this 35 foot creature actually biological or were they witness to something else altogether?
It's no mystery that UFO's have been seen entering and exiting bodies of water for decades. And to add to the that, odd creatures of a paranormal or cryptozooligical nature have also been sighted. From mermaids and merman to seven foot tall beings in full diving gear or sometimes without any visible breathing apparatus at all.
We're all so caught up in the vision of a long-necked sea serpent gallantly wading through the loch that we have blinded ourselves to the possibility of it being something else. What if most of the sea serpents witnessed throughout the last couple hundred years weren't even animals?
USO's are practically commonplace, as far as the ever burdening UFO phenomena goes. Some well cited examples include the SHAG HARBOR incident in NOVA SCOTIA (see DARK OBJECT by Don Ledger and Chris Styles), and an incident in MALTA in the Mediterranean (search GOOGLE= USO's in MALTA).
Lately there's been a stream of sightings of flying humanoids and UFO's coalescing into one body and then separating into several. It is more than probable that the UFO's of today are very good at mimicing our delusions. If not that, they have the uncanny ability to morph.
What if they can morph underwater as well? Mimicing the sealife that may have existed in a time when our ancestors weren't advanced enough to record the goings-on of the strange things in the air and sea?

Spielberg launching social network for UFO and paranormal buffs?

Evolution of the YETI

"...good visual examination and overview of the popular appearance of what Abominable Snowmen (or Snowpeople)..."


I used to love the Abominable Snowman on RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSE REINDEER.

Who didn't.

STEVE BASSETT @ BOA

Steve Bassett, founder of Paradigm Research Group, creator of the X-Conference, and major player in the world of Exopolitics, makes his BoA:Audio return. We'll be discussing the changes in public perception for the UFO phenomenon in the last two years (since his last BoA:Audio appearance), the distinction between Ufology and Exopolitics, the UFO connections for each of the remaining three candidates for US President (McCain, Obama, and Clinton), why Steve thinks disclosure is possible for "Spring of 2009", his take on the Kucinich firestorm from last November and why it was good for the disclosure movement, the changing stance of the media with regards to UFOs, Steve's response to the "haters" who are anti-Exopolitics, and tons more.

Full Preview: We start out by getting Steve's take on the resurgence of interest in the UFO phenomenon, since his last appearance on the show in January of 2006, and what that means for Exopolitics. Steve segues from this to explaining the difference between Ufology and Exopolitics.

We move on from there to look at the 2008 Presidential election from an Exopolitical perspective. First, Steve gives us a rundown on how media coverage of the UFO phenomenon has changed rapidly in the last few years. He then explains the UFO connection for each of the three remaining candidates, John McCain and his role in investigating the Phoenix Lights, Barack Obama's campaign advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski's connection to the Carter Administration's UFO inquiries, and Hilary Clinton's ties to the Rockefeller Initiative for UFO information release.

From there, we look back at the Kucinich UFO debate question and the subsequent media fallout and Steve reassures binnall that it was a good thing and explains why it seemed like the "giggle factor" had been turned up after being relatively subdued during the bulk of '07's media coverage of UFOs.

We find out why Steve thinks Spring of 2009 is the next window of opportunity for a UFO disclosure event. He explains how the international situation is changing rapidly with regards to maintaining the UFO "truth embargo." We discuss how extensive the pre-planning would have to be for a disclosure type event and if Steve had heard any rumblings in that direction. Next we get Steve's take on the recent story of an alleged UN meeting about UFO disclosure.

Going back to look at the rise in media coverage of the UFO issue, we find out if Steve has noticed a difference in attitude from the media, based on his frequent mainstream TV and radio appearances. Steve responds to the concept that whomever is controlling the UFO secret is keeping the media from discussing it and he explains why that may not be the case in 2008.

Steve gives us his take on the Symington / Phoenix Lights story from last year and why it is a "microcosm of what's happening" in the Exopolitical scene. Next, we get Steve's response to the Exopolitics "haters" out there and he details why this tension is not surprising. This segues into a discussion on the long-standing concern that UFO disclosure would see the mainstream diminish the accomplishments of Ufologists who studied the phenomena for decades.

Getting some on-the-ground perspective, Steve tells us about the mood at the International UFO Congress in Laughlin, Nevada, where he is calling from. We also find out how the youth turnout is for the conference and Steve shares his candid perspective on the problem of the lack of young people interested in the UFO phenomenon.

Wrapping things up, Steve previews the X-Conference IV, to be held April 18 to the 20th in Gaithersburg, Maryland. He talks about some of the speakers, including the Keynote Address by Edgar Mitchell, a special two hour presentation by Coast to Coast AM host George Noory, a panel on the infamous Aviary, tons of speakers, and tons more. Steve explains why the event is a "showing of the flag" for the Exopolitical movement.

Steve Bassett Bio
Steve Bassett is a political activist, founder of Paradigm Research Group, Executive Director of the Extraterrestrial Phenomena Political Action Committee (X-PPAC, pronounced expack), author of the Paradigm Clock website, and a political columnist, commentator and former Independent candidate for Congress. He is the executive producer of the X-Conference.

Presently he is the only registered lobbyist in the United States representing extraterrestrial related phenomena research/activist organizations, and X-PPAC is the first political action committee to target the political implications of extraterrestrial related phenomena. Between April 19 and November 5 of 2002 he conducted an independent candidacy in the 2002 congressional campaign in the 8th District of Maryland. It was the first instance in which a candidate on the November ballot in a federal election openly addressed the matter of an extraterrestrial presence and the government imposed truth embargo.

Since 1996 Bassett has assisted a number of organizations and initiatives, which have been making the case for 1) an end to the government embargo on the truth surrounding an extraterrestrial presence and 2) open congressional hearings to take the testimony of former military and agency employees witness to extraterrestrial related events and evidence. He has spoken to millions of Americans about the likelihood and implications of a formal disclosure event.

Ambrose Bierce and multiple dimensions...

Although I find it highly unlikely that Bierce disappeared into a black hole. It's still intriguing nonetheless that such a prolific author was into the esoteric. We don't here his name passed around much in esoteric circles. It's refreshing to see 'someone' talking about him.
It's also a shame that most of his works are out of reach for the average person.
