Let’s start taking it seriously for 2019.

Ok, this needs to be said. I’ve spent some of my time off, watching various paranormal team investigation videos on You Tube. Skimmed through about 10 in the past few nights. One thing they all had in common, which I found frustrating and if I’m honest, embarassing. They all contained no actual investigation or science… Continue reading Let’s start taking it seriously for 2019.

UFOs and Rockets

MOST UFO INVESTIGATORS AGREE that UFOs represent a superior technology. In case after case, UFOs easily outdistance our fastest aircraft and are able to perform maneuvers that seem to defy the laws of physics. The craft are typically silent and show no evidence of any propulsion systems involving fuels or propellants. And yet the metallic… Continue reading UFOs and Rockets

The 10 Commandments of Paranormal TV

Would it be possible – just once will be fine! – to see a supernatural, paranormal or Fortean-themed “Reality TV” show that offers the viewer at least a bit of originality? It’s almost like there’s a book that all the writers, directors and producers consult before they lazily crank out the latest piece of tat.… Continue reading The 10 Commandments of Paranormal TV

Beyond UFO Abductions

The UFO phenomenon is extraordinarily complex, however the main focus is undeniably face-to-face encounters or the onboard UFO experience. Still, when people think of these types of close encounters, they often assume that the experience is a terrifying event during which the unwilling victim is laid out on a table and examined by emotionless gray-type… Continue reading Beyond UFO Abductions

The Ten Essentials of Bigfooting

PARALYSIS AND THE UFO PHENOMENON

Introduction   Recently, in the Australasian Ufologist, I had an article published titled “Waking paralysed:abduction or sleep paralysis?” In this article I pointed out that, to me, quite a few abduction accounts seemed more like attacks of sleep paralysis accompanied by hypnagogic/hypnopompic imagery, than anything extraordinary. While undertaking the research for that article, I started… Continue reading PARALYSIS AND THE UFO PHENOMENON

A Case for Infrasound

Most researchers of the Sasquatch phenomenon soon recognize that many people have strange reactions to the presence of these animals.

The Maureen Puddy Case

One track of the Wendy Connors Audio History of UFOlogy Series “CE IV” CD offers a 19-minute recording of an interview with Maureen Puddy about a July 25, 1972 “abduction” in Frankston, Victoria, Australia. In this case, the word ‘abduction’ is a misnomer identifying a wrongfulness to an event beyond the experiencer’s understanding.  The interview… Continue reading The Maureen Puddy Case
