Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon: University Observatory Films Real UAPs: (The Hessdalen Project).

Take a look at the picture above (see the film footage from the video below). What you’re looking at is an irrefutably legitimate photo of an Unidentified Aerial Object/Phenomenon (UAP).
For those of you who are unaware, the existence of UAPs has already been officially verified in the ‘mainstream’ world, as dozens of governments have released thousands upon thousands of UAP related documents over the past few years. In the process, they have revealed a high level of interest from the military and defense intelligence agencies around the world on this topic.

We knew that the Earth was flat, we knew that we were the center of the universe, and we knew that a man-made heavier than air piece of machinery could not take flight.

Through all stages of human history, intellectual authorities have pronounced their supremacy by ridiculing or suppressing elements of reality that simply didn’t fit within the framework of accepted knowledge. . . .

But are we really any different today? Have we really changed our acceptance towards the things that won’t fit the frame? Maybe there are concepts of our reality we have yet to understand, and if we open our eyes maybe we will see that something significant has been overlooked.

The nations of the world are currently working together in the investigation of the UAP phenomenon. There is an international exchange of data.

Behind the scenes, high Air Force officers are soberly concerned about UAPs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense.

This should be the subject of rigorous scientific investigation and not the subject of ‘rubbishing’ by tabloid newspapers.

Soon enough, modern civilization is likely to be confronted with the biggest paradigm shift regarding our perception of reality that has been seen in human history.

History and description

The Hessdalen lights are of unknown origin. They appear at day and night, and seem to float through and above the valley. They are usually bright white, yellow, or red and can appear above and below the horizon. Duration of the phenomenon may be a few seconds to well over an hour. Sometimes the lights move with enormous speed; at other times they seem to sway slowly back and forth. On yet other occasions, they hover in mid-air.

Unusual lights have been reported in the region since at least the 1930s. Especially high activity occurred between December 1981 and mid-1984, in which period the lights were being observed 15–20 times per week, attracting many overnight tourists who arrived in for a sighting. As of 2010, the number of observations has dwindled, with only 10 to 20 sightings made yearly.


Since 1983, there has been ongoing scientific research, referred to as “Project Hessdalen”, initiated by UFO-Norge and UFO-Sweden. This project was active as field investigations during 1983–1985. A group of students, engineers, and journalists collaborated as “The Triangle Project” in 1997–1998 and recorded the lights in a pyramid shape that bounced up and down. In 1998, the Hessdalen Automatic Measurement Station (Hessdalen AMS) was set up in the valley to register and record the appearance of lights.

Later, the program was initiated to bring together established scientists and students into researching these lights. Leading research institutions are Østfold University College (Norway) and the Italian National Research Council.

Note: As I’ve stated numerous times, this phenomenon is far more complicated and has many aspects to it than the simplistic, two-dimensional idea of aliens from space.

Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon: I’ve Seen Through The Looking Glass: Theories anyone?

Hello world. I feel it’s my duty as a human being and fellow citizen to share my experience, as ridiculous as it sounds, and regardless of the consequences for speaking out. Hopefully, mainstream scientists will also take this seriously as it would be helpful when all of humanity, will become aware of other, unexpected, profound realities.

“I’ve been around for a while…met a lot of interesting people…done some crazy things”.

That being said, I’m a man of science, not a “UFO/ET Believer”.

I’m not an author or a writer, just a one finger typer, just Joe Citizen with an above average interest in science and nature…everything from Palaeontology, Biology, Archaeology to Astrobiology. Space Science is my forte.

You can read all “About Me” by clicking HERE.

My UAP Experience

I had a life altering experience about 30 years ago, around the late 70’s or early 80’s. I witnessed some kind of enormous, circular, Mysterious Aircraft with lights around the perimeter. I still remember it today as if it happened yesterday.

Every time when I used to tell my story, I would literally relive the whole experience. What I mean by “used to tell” is because I no longer bother. Nobody listens, nobody cares and most don’t believe it anyway.

On that note, I’m going to tell it for the last time.

In the winter of the late 70s or early 80s, January perhaps, I just got off work at 9:30 P.M. from the auto dealership. I was a car salesman at the time. I started driving towards the city of Toronto, Canada, on the QEW (Queen Elizabeth Way) eastbound to meet some friends at a bar on the Esplanade (a street lined with nightclubs).

I was not under the influence of any drug or alcohol.

As I was driving, I noticed a string of lights slowly rotating counter-clockwise over the city of Toronto, at about the ten o’clock position from my point of view. This caught my eye because these formation of lights were very unusual. The lights were evidently in a circular pattern with about two-thirds visible as the other third rotated out of view.

Imagine a pie plate with about 25 lights around the circumference of it. As this “pie plate” would revolve, a third of these lights would be hidden from view as if they were obstructed by a solid body. It was at night so all I could see was these rotating string of lights, but they were definitely on a “fixed” platform as the lights were revolving in perfect unison.

Although I’ve heard of Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon and was curious, at that time in my life, I didn’t really give that much thought about them. I’ve always been interested in nature and especially about the universe. I’ve seen all kinds of aircraft and advertising blimps at night before. I drove taxi’s off and on for fifteen years on the night shift and have seen countless meteors, lightning, satellites, etc.

On two occasions I’ve even seen extremely bright, slow falling, green fireball meteors lighting up the ground, for a couple of seconds, as if it was daylight. I’ve read, in later years, were other witnesses reported green fireballs as Unidentified Flying Objects. I chuckled to myself thinking how easily “UFO believers” can be fooled by natural phenomenon.

Anyway, these circle of lights were slowly descending and approaching towards me (westbound), while I was driving about 115 kilometers per hour on the highway (eastbound). These lights were getting closer and closer as “we” approached each other. I recall thinking to myself that this must be some kind of advertising balloon and those lights were letters.

As I kept driving, I was paying more and more attention to this object because the closer it was getting, the more unusual it looked. I kept glancing at it, while driving, waiting until it was close enough to read what these letters were saying, still thinking it was some kind of advertising blimp. The closer it got, the more I looked at it.

Now at my nine o’clock position, the string of rotating lights appeared to bank left like an airplane would “turning right”. Actually, it wasn’t banking at all. It was dipping forward pointing towards the ground. At this point, I realized that these lights were not letters at all. They were all different shapes and sizes, yellowish white in color.

For years of scouring the internet, I finally found this photograph, Literally Identical to what I, or rather, “we” saw. I’m convinced it’s the same craft. The only difference is the color of the lights.

Take A Look At My Drawings I made Years Before this 1988 photo – My Official UAP Report

CLICK HERE For The Photo Analysis Of The Object.

Photo courtesy of Center For UFO Studies

Report Summary of the above photograph taken by a police officer:

Randy Etting, a resident of Newtown, was taking a walk outside his home. A commercial airline pilot with over 30 years experience, he always looked at the sky… he saw a number of orange and red lights… approaching from the west… He… got his binoculars and called his neighbors to come outside. The object by this time was a great deal closer and seemed to be over I-84, just east of Etting’s home… the lights were shimmering like distortion from engine heat, but he could hear no sound…

“As the UFO passed over I-84, cars in both the east and westbound lanes began pulling over and stopping. The UFO displayed a semi-circular pattern of very bright multicolored lights. Five motorists reported that, as the object became visible, “a number of cars lost power and had to pull off the highway” (a common characteristic of the phenomenon reported). A State Police officer [who wishes to remain anonymous] sent to investigate photographed the object.

“… Dr. Bruce Maccabee… [analyzed the photo]. His findings indicate the object was huge, perhaps over a thousand feet across, and that the lights showed a definite pattern. He also indicated the lights seemed to have been flashing very quickly in some sort of sequence, giving the impression that some were out of focus while others were sharp.

During the time when this Strange “Craft” started to bank left, or I thought from my point of view, I was struggling with myself trying to understand whether this was a plane of some kind, a blimp, or balloon. It was flying too slow for a plane, yet, too fast for a blimp.

Also, it didn’t appear to be flying or floating. The best way I can describe its motion is that it looked like it was “sailing” in the sky, defying gravity, as if it was in its own, separate environment, outside our sphere of perception.

What’s interesting here is that the human brain tries to associate what the eyes are seeing, to something already seen or experienced before. That’s why I was at war with myself trying to decide whether this object was a plane, blimp or a balloon. Every time I resigned myself to what I must be witnessing, I jumped to another conclusion. This jumping from one conclusion to another occurred during the whole experience.

I was imagining all kinds of things.

For example, if it was a plane, the only way these lights could have been positioned was in a circle because this plane must have had some kind of supporting structure in a circle from wing tip to wing tip. This didn’t make any sense at all. I’ve seen advertising planes before. This was nothing like this. Not even close. Then I was trying to imagine a “Goodyear blimp” with these letters going across its side. This was nothing like it either.

So here I was, trying to drive and watch this object at the same time. As I was driving, I started to slow down because I kept looking at this circle of lights more than the road ahead of me. In retrospect, I don’t even know how I kept my car on the road because I was so awed by this display in the sky.

As the object kept dipping forward more and more, it eventually ended up totally perpendicular to the ground! The first thing that came to mind was a giant Ferris wheel rotating in the sky. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing! At this point I slowed down to about 50 KPH (30 miles an hour on a 60 MPH highway for my American friends) and put my four-way, flashing hazard lights on my car fearing that another car would crash into the back of me for going so slow on a 100 KPH highway.

As I was mesmerized by this strange Aerial Object, a surge of adrenaline hit me like a ton of bricks. I didn’t realize how BIG this thing was. At first, I thought it was the size of an airplane fairly close. IT WAS GIGANTIC! Absolutely ENORMOUS in size. At least twice the size of a football field, bigger than an aircraft carrier!

It must have been miles away. I don’t know what gave away its size. Maybe the reflections of light on the ground. The best way I can relate this sudden realization is like one of those illusions most of us have seen. You know, when you look at a pixel drawing with an image you can’t see until you stare at it for a while? After a period of time, you make out the face of a woman or something like that? That’s kind of the transformation I experienced. At first, I thought the object was the size of a large plane than suddenly I REALLY saw it. My brain finally got it.


I’ve never seen a structure this enormous on the ground, on the water, let alone in the air!

I yelled out loud to myself, “Holy F**k, It’s Huge!!!”. I don’t F***ing believe it, it’s F***ing Huge!!!. I thought it was fairly close at first, then bang! it was farther away and larger than my brain first comprehended it.

Speaking about this surge of adrenaline. Have you ever had a really close call in a car accident? When your heart rate skyrockets to about 180 beats per minute? That’s what I felt when I realized how Gargantuan this craft was! I could actually feel my heart pounding in my chest like crazy. To be frank, that’s when it literally scared the hell out of me, when I realized how enormous this thing was.

At this point, I rolled down my window and pointed to this giant “Ferris wheel” in the sky to the other motorists, but it appeared no one seemed to notice as they screamed by me at regular highway speeds. I remember how cold it was when I rolled down my window. It was something like minus 30 Celsius below zero.

After, I don’t know how long, probably only a few seconds of rotating in this perpendicular position, the craft started to climb and right itself and “sail” back to the direction it originally came from. I rolled up my window, turned off my hazard lights, and started to speed up to chase it. Still, it seemed other motorists didn’t notice this object. That still irks me to this day why nobody seemed to notice it. Do most drivers have tunnel vision?

As I was approaching the city limits, this object was in its flat position again climbing over the city. Then, all of a sudden, the rotating lights turned off except for a red “aircraft like” blinking light (which I never noticed before). After a few seconds, the rotating lights turned on again. It was like in the movie “Close Encounters Of The Third Kind“. The lights just blasted on. Then after a few seconds, they turned off again as it seemed to be over the city. Strange behavior. It appeared to be showing off, wanting to be seen.

Now I was exiting off of the highway onto Spadina Rd. I lost track of these lights because of the tall buildings. When I was on the street where I was going, “Esplanade”, I saw a cop parked on the other side of the road writing a parking ticket. I stopped in the middle of the road and ran over to him. He was quite taken aback by my seemingly aggressive approach. I asked him, “how long have you been here?” I forgot what he said, but I asked, “did you see that big circle of lights flying in the sky? He said “no”.

After parking my car, I met my friends at the bar, “Bailey’s”, (Dave B. and Craig C.) and told them what happened, but they didn’t take me seriously as they’ve already had a few drinks and were more interested in the ladies than listening to my astonishing, wild experience. After sitting at the bar by myself for an hour or so I went home. I was living at my parent’s house at the time, temporarily, so when I got home around 11 P.M., I called the police.

I didn’t know who else to phone at the time.

They didn’t take me seriously of course so, after that, I phoned the Toronto International Airport and managed to get through to Air Traffic Control and asked them if they had anyone call in with a UFO report. Nothing. So I called the police again and convinced them to take me seriously as I wanted to make a report. They told me they can send a couple of officers to my house.

As it was late and my parents were asleep, I told them I’d rather come to the station the next day to report. Next morning, when I contemplated going in, I decided not to, fearing they would think I’m some kind of wacko UFO fanatic.

As the days went by, scanning the newspapers looking for a “UFO sighting” to no avail, I started doubting myself. I was trying to convince myself that perhaps I was somehow mistaken. Maybe it was something not out of the ordinary at all. Maybe it was a balloon or airplane of some kind. Maybe like thousands of others, I witnessed something that I misinterpreted for something else.

About a week or so later, on or about the tenth page of the Toronto Star, Toronto Sun or the Mississauga News, buried in the bottom right-hand corner, there it was! A short article. “Dozens of Mississauga residents reported a UFO as big as a football field.” I don’t recall the whole article. “Finally, ” I said to myself. “I knew it was real”, “I knew I didn’t imagine this”. I’ll never, ever, doubt myself again, no matter how much ridicule I’ll be subjected to.

I have some regrets however. One is It didn’t occur to me at the time to contact the media instead of the police and the airport. My second regret is I wish I had others with me to have this one in a million experience. And most importantly, I wish I knew what I was witnessing right from the beginning so that I would have found a way to park my car and really pay attention to this strange, enormous “craft” sailing in the cold night sky.

So there you have it folks. I won a lottery of sorts. Don’t believe me? I don’t care. Still interested? Keep reading. Obviously, the Phenomenon is real and worldwide. The evidence dictates that this enigma has been here all along, since recorded history.

Science Simply hasn’t caught up with it yet in my opinion. Consider this. A thousand years ago, the greatest minds on Earth couldn’t understand why “stars fell from the heavens” (meteors), and other celestial mysteries. We today are in the same situation. We are witnessing a phenomenon that is not understood by our science, technology, and human understanding.

Now before, you the readers, pass judgment on me, please take the time to read what I have to say. I’m NOT a “UFO Believer” per say. In other words, I’m not a tin hat UFO fanatic who embraces this enigma as some kind of new age religion waiting for aliens from space to save mankind from himself. December 22, 2012, will just be another work day, and life will keep going on. Yup, we still have to go to work and pay our bills, no need to stock up on water, weapons or Ensure. (From my original post, pre-2012).

As I stated at the beginning, I’m just Joe Citizen with above average interest in science and nature, and especially about this vast, ancient Cosmos, who had a truly unbelievable experience which is extremely difficult to explain let alone believe. Hell, if someone were to tell me the same story, I would have a hard time believing it also.

I gave up “selling” my experience many years ago as it falls on deaf ears anyway. I’ve written to President Jimmy Carter (a witness), President Ronald Reagan (also a witness), George W. Bush and never received a response…as expected of course. Hell, they’re just politicians, figureheads who come and go. What do they really know? It’s called “plausible deniability”.

I’ve also sent my experience to my favorite, colorful, theoretical physicist, Dr. Michio Kaku. At least to my surprise he took the time and responded when I asked him why mainstream scientists shy away from this Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon business. He wrote back and said that it was because of “the giggle factor”. I can understand that since hard-core scientists need to be able to study the data in a controlled laboratory environment.

So from now on, I won’t use “UFO” as an abbreviation for “Unidentified Flying Object” as this means anything flying in the sky which cannot be identified because of lack of data, misidentification or the ignorance of the witness or witnesses. This accounts for about 90% of reports made. I will refer to this enigma as “UAPs”, “Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon” meaning after strict scientific scrutiny, with verifiable data, qualified witnesses and the sighting remains unidentified. This accounts for approximately 10% of the real, genuine reports of Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon.

Since this incident, circa 1980, I’ve collected hundreds of newspaper clippings, watched countless documentaries, and since the advent of the internet, I’ve downloaded gigabytes of reports, videos, documentaries, information, and data. I’ve watched countless video clips on YouTube and laughed at all the CGI B.S., misidentifications and ignorance from the submitter’s. To some, “The UFO Believers”, any light far off in the sky must be an “alien spacecraft”. Absurd.

I’ve been receiving UAP reports, worldwide, every day for the last 20 years or so. Even after all these decades of researching and reading, I still don’t know what this giant object was or what this phenomenon represents. I cannot be objective when it comes to this phenomenon because I saw it with my own eyes. Absolutely no doubt about it. I’m 110% sure it was real and something not from our reality. I know what I saw. It was as real as a passing train. I’m not that stupid, ignorant or uneducated to be fooled by something with a natural, down to Earth explanation, so there is no point debating my reports’ authenticity or my integrity. Folks will have to take my story at face value, believe it or not, I simply don’t care.

I don’t have an ego to bruise, a career to protect, or a reputation to lose. So what do I have to gain here by telling a tall tale, opening myself up to even more ridicule? Over the years I’ve come up with many theories and yet the answer still eludes me. Perhaps there’s someone out in the world who has some answers. I want to know. If only mainstream scientists would pull their head out of the sand and seriously investigate my experience along with millions of other witnesses from around the globe. The mainstream scientists reasoning is “it couldn’t be, therefore it isn’t”. Not very scientific, is it?

I’m not going to blindly jump on the UAP/Alien bandwagon like so many other folks in this field because it’s fashionable. I don’t have any evidence, let alone proof, that this craft was extraterrestrial in nature. After all these years, I only know two things. First, It was the largest structure I’ve ever seen or heard of in my life. Second, I know this object was from some other reality. truly, out of this world. What reality would some ask? I don’t have a clue. I’m not smart enough for that kind of question.

Scientists have learned a lot about the Cosmos in the last half century. Theoretical scientists and physicists are even speculating about Parallel Worlds, Multiverses, Multiple Dimensions, even Time Travel. So we should put the ET hypothesis at the bottom of the list. Ther are other endless possibilities of the true nature of this mystery. We have to start thinking outside the box and entertain the impossible in my opinion.

One theory of mine was I thought it might be some kind of secret American aircraft. But then after years of thinking and theorizing, I asked myself, why would the U.S be testing top-secret aircraft in the middle of winter, over a large Canadian city? This thing appeared to be showing off like it wanted to be seen.

Then I thought of the “UFO believer’s” simplistic idea that UAPs represent extraterrestrial spacecraft visiting our speck of the galaxy in this vast, ancient cosmos. It was a plausible theory at first but after thinking about it a lot, I disregarded that idea also. If an advanced extraterrestrial race were observing us, they would probably do it from a distance and use other methods we humans would not be aware of, let alone understand, unless these close encounter cases were deliberate in nature.

It’s what our scientists do now. Does a herd of Zebra know they’re being observed by an aircraft kilometers away with high-powered camera’s manned by humans? Is a colony of ants aware that their anthill is only a hundred meters away from a runway of an international airport with Homo Sapiens onboard airplanes with laptops and smartphones?

The reason I use this analogy is because of the age of the cosmos and our very short time in it, a nanosecond in the big picture. Science and logic dictate’s to me that since the universe is full of water, carbon and other elements, it has to be teeming with life, I’m 100% sure, and most of it must be beyond human comprehension. Advanced civilizations would be so far above us on the evolutionary scale as we are over the Amoeba. So it’s obvious to me that this phenomenon is far more complex, unexpected and profound than the simplistic idea of little gray beings, in their flying saucers, visiting us from other star systems.

In my opinion, the odds of direct communication with an advanced extraterrestrial civilization is highly unlikely. And even if we were confronted by an advanced civilization, would we even recognize it for what it is? But then, what the hell do I, or should I say “we” know anyway? We know more about our Moon, Solar System, even deep space, than our own planet, especially our deep oceans!

Consider this. We, humans, have only engaged about 5% of life on our planet. 80% of life is in our oceans. We’ve explored less than 5% of the oceans on our globe. Do the math.

Before we speculate about life in space, any life, we still have a lot to learn about life right here on planet Earth. Hell, we still have a long way to go. Don’t you think?

Here are couple of quotes to ponder,

“The Universe in not only queerer than we imagine, it is queerer than we CAN imagine”
John B. S. Haldane

“A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.”
Max Planck, Theoretical Physicist, Scientific Autobiography

Well, enough about my rant folks.

Please visit my site. I’ve spent many years searching, researching, reading and constantly updating the content with the latest science news including this UAP Mystery.

NOTE – My site does not advocate the UFO/Alien conjecture regarding UAP’s as found all over the Internet by self-proclaimed experts. This elusive global Enigma is not understood by our current science, technology, human comprehension and appears to defy our laws of physics…and even after decades of gathering evidence and research remains unsolved.

Our science and technology simply have not caught up with it yet.

I am dedicated to the examination and analysis, with evidence, of the UAP/UFO Phenomenon. My purpose is to promote serious scientific interest in UAP/UFO Reality for Scientists, Academics, Investigators, and most importantly, the General Public.

Thanks for reading and listening.

Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon: Beware The Enormous, Impeding, Cosmic Paradigm Shift!

“We Are On The Verge Of A Major, Profound Discovery!”T. Blank

We are the aliens.

A dark secret lies deeply buried in our DNA. We are all aliens – made up of cosmic genes, from cosmic bacteria and viruses that drifted down to us in comet dust and meteorites through the depths of space.

Continuing to turn a blind eye to the evidence presented below may be fraught with dangers that threaten the very continuity of our species.

Earth-like planets galore.

Astronomical observations using the NASA Kepler Space Telescope launched in 2009 have recently revealed that over 100 billion habitable Earth-like planets could exist in the Milky Way system, the galaxy of stars to which our planetary system belongs.

And now, scientists found evidence that there are ten times more Galaxies in the Cosmos as previously believed. That’s two Trillion galaxies, most with hundreds of billions of stars, trillions and trillions of planets!

Earth-centred biology.

Whilst the ideas of an Earth-centred universe were abandoned by the dawn of the 17th century, modern ideas of life continue to remain firmly Earth-centred.

Life in the form of bacteria is posited, without any evidence whatsoever, to arise de novo in a primordial ocean from organic molecules that were supposedly generated in its original place on the Earth.

It has now been discovered that the oldest evidence of microbial life on Earth is contained in rocks (discovered in Western Australia) that formed 4.1 billion years ago, at a time of intense comet and asteroid bombardment. The possibility of a terrestrial primordial soup is now squeezed out of the geological record making it most unlikely that life could have originated on the Earth.

The Theory of Panspermia.

For many years I’ve surmised that It is far more probable that the impacting comets brought the first micro organisms to Earth from the external cosmos. Astronomical data and calculations have pointed to the widespread prevalence of freeze-dried bacteria and viruses throughout the universe.

Cosmic Viruses and Evolution.

It’s been argued that once microbial life became established on the Earth its further evolution leading to plants, animals, humans required a continuing input, albeit sporadically, of viral genes from the external cosmos.

Darwinian evolution was then relegated to a less important role of sifting out best-fitting life forms (vis-a-vis survival in the terrestrial environment) from a range of outcomes determined by viral ingress to the Earth. On this picture major genetic shifts leading to the emergence of new species, classes and orders did not arise from the accumulations of favourable copying errors as hitherto believed but from the incorporation of whole new suites of cosmic genes.

Evidence continues to grow.

Life originating outside the Earth, and evolving mainly through the agency of external inputs, continues to be fiercely resisted by practitioners of orthodox science. With the body of supportive evidence getting stronger by the day, however, this resistance cannot continue much longer.

Last year the Rosetta Space Mission to a comet (Comet 67P/C-G, to give its technical name) discovered ample evidence of life processes releasing streams of organic molecules.

Evidence denied.

Since 2001 the collection of material from the stratosphere using balloons flown to heights of 41km has shown ample evidence of microbes.

Likewise the growing evidence for fossil micro organisms in meteorites (large fragments of comets and meteorites that reach the Earth) has been vigorously disputed. Recently, the Polonnaruwa Meteorite that fell in 2013 was found to have unambiguous signs of microbial life – far too uncomfortable for the critics.

Medical evidence.

A close study of the patterns of pandemics of viral diseases revealed that in some cases, i. e. influenza, person to person spread of an endemic virus cannot be the whole story. In the classic instance of the 1918/1919 influenza pandemic that claimed over 20 million lives worldwide, the first outbreaks of a lethal strain appeared on the same day in Boston and Bombay. Before the advent of air travel this was of course impossible on the basis of person-to-person transmission.

Alien genes discovered in the octopus.

If a single discovery is to serve as a watershed in the journey to accepting our cosmic origins, it is a recent study of two related species the squid and the octopus. The squid has an antiquity in the geological record that goes back to the great Metazoan Explosion of multi-celled life 540 million years ago. The octopus apparently branches out from the squid line about 400 million years ago, presumed to evolve from an ancestral squid.

The squid contains a very meagre compliment of genes adequate to serve its modest survival needs. The emergent octopus, on the other hand, has over 40,000 genes (the human has only 25,000 genes) and many of these genes code for complex brain function.

Where did the suite of genes coding for complex brain function come from? They were not present in the ancestral squid or in any other living form that existed on the Earth at the time. The clear implication is that they came from outside the Earth – external to terrestrial biology.

Taking account of evidence from many disparate disciplines – astronomy and space exploration, geology, biology, genetics and epidemiology – there can be no question that alien life invaded the Earth 4.1 billion years ago and still continues to do so.

Neglecting this stark and simple fact of life could be to our peril.

I think it’s time for mainstream scientists to take a good look at the UAP/UFO phenomenon. The evidence is everywhere.

Continuing to turn a blind eye to UAP Reality may be fraught with dangers that threaten the very continuity of our species. (Click on the “Hynek” image below for more)

Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon: E.L.E. Or Reaching For The Moon?

I know this is somewhat off topic folks, but it is about life, extinctions and saving our planet.

This is getting very, very serious. Be afraid, be very afraid.
Read some of the “facts” below and think, really think, and think again.

It is estimated, 50 to 100 species on Earth go extinct everyday.

We’ve only discovered 5% of life on our planet.

80% of life are in our oceans.

We’ve explored less than 5% of our oceans.

Fact: 100 million sharks are killed every year, mostly for their fins. China is the guilty one Your Honor.

Fact: Every year we discard approximately 40 billion pounds of dead fish as by-catch, because it wasn’t the species we were targeting.

Fact: In the last 40 years, our oceans have become 30% more acidic causing the “bleaching” of the Coral Reefs.

Fact: The Great Barrier Reef has declined in coral cover by 38 percent over the last 25 years. Coral cover in the Caribbean has declined by as much as 90 percent.

Fact: It took four million years for corals to rebuild reefs after the last extinction.

Coral reefs, “the water filtration system”, protect coastlines from the damaging effects of wave action and tropical storms which are getting worse because of Climate Change.

Coral reefs, “the rainforests of the sea”, are some of the most diverse and valuable ecosystems on Earth. Coral reefs support more species per unit area than any other marine environment, including about 4,000 species of fish, 800 species of hard corals and hundreds of other species.

Coral reefs provide food to millions of humans. Corals, like trees, provide three-dimensional structure and substrate to house and feed fish and other marine animals that humans eat.

Some estimates say that over 1 billion people depend on food from coral reefs, and reefs as a whole might be worth around $172 billion for every year they continue to provide essential services to humans, like food.

Fact: Tropical forests are home to more than half of the world’s species, and produce a third of our oxygen.

Fact: Deforestation is the second biggest emitter of carbon dioxide, and contributor to ocean acidification.

Fact: Madagascar has already lost 90% of its forest.

Fact: 75% of the world’s forests are gone due to deforestation.

Fact: Most of the “Big Five” mass extinction events can be directly attributable to ocean acidification. Sharks survived all five E.LE.’s.

Two thirds of the world’s species could be gone by the end of the century.

Leading scientists insist that by the middle of this century, we could have no fish in the sea, no coral reefs, no rainforests and a planet that can’t sustain many forms of life.

Fact: The last time something of this magnitude happened was the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction which took place 65 million years ago, and it is “estimated” that 75% of all species vanished.

Fact: The last time this huge spike in just CO2 Climate Change levels was 3 million years ago.

Fact: Since the Industrial Revolution we have released “approximately” 1 quadrillion pounds (1,000,000,000,000,000) of CO2 into the atmosphere.

The Earth’s population will increase from 7 billion today to approximately 9 billion by 2050 and we are already exhausting the capacity of the planet to provide for us at our current level of population and consumption.

In brief folks,

We are in the middle of another E.L.E., (Extinction Level Event). We humans are causing most, maybe 90%, of this tragedy. We are adding to, not the sole cause, of these life extinctions. 99.9% of life that ever roamed our globe has gone extinct from natural causes, (Volcanoes, Asteroids, Methane etc..)

We’re not only destroying our planet, we’re also destroying ourselves, as a species. We are on the verge of driving ourselves to extinction unless we make huge changes right now…today!

Why is this happening? Well, for one thing,  corporate greed and politics with “short-term” profit motives, thinking quarterly instead of seeing, or caring, about the big picture.

How can we start? Finding the right leaders on our globe with the “political will”!

We’ve done it before.

“We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do the other things…not because they are easy, but because they are hard”. JFK – September 12th, 1962


This is the kind of political will we need. Why not do what Denmark did. Denmark Just Ran Their Entire Country on 100% Wind Energy.

End of today’s rant.

Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon: The Sceptics, The Scientists, And The Double Standards

I don’t agree with everything here but It’s still a good read.

We’d nearly all be aware that when it comes to the subject of UAPs, most scientists shun away from them like they would a skunk who let fly. Scientists and UAPs tend to party together in much the same way as oil and water mix. Professional sceptics have a field day with the topic by usually picking and choosing to give their middle finger to the easy targets, not the hardcore issues. For example, it’s easy to rubbish someone who says they took a trip in a flying saucer with the ‘space brothers’ to Saturn; it’s much harder to ridicule a military pilot who reports engaging in a dogfight with a UAP. So, is this behaviour rational or are there hidden agendas and double standards?

Many professional scientists, and other sceptics, when and if they think about UAPs at all, have been preconditioned to think of them in terms of the lunatic fringe, nutters who accept any and all pseudoscience associated with the paranormal and therefore not worthy of their attention, or if worthy, then worthy in a negative sense as only something to ridicule. They like to in a sense ‘pour water on a drowning man’ and pat themselves on the back as how superior they are relative to the astrology-minded; the great unwashed set who believe dinosaurs and humans coexisted together.

Firstly, let’s dispose of the sceptics, professional and otherwise, since their double standard amounts to treating all pseudoscience or all paranormal topics equally. Actually therefore sceptics only have a single standard – no shades of grey. One size fits all. That is to say, no matter what the anomaly, it’s rubbish. Sceptics just lump together all that’s paranormal, and call it pseudoscience as any sceptics’ website or monograph will more than adequately demonstrate – all pseudoscience is nonsense and all = all. However, I suggest that instead of all anomalies being equal; some anomalies are more equal than others. In short, some anomalies are really bovine fertiliser, but hardly all. To lump astrology and UAPs in the same basket is a double standard, since the theoretical and observational evidence for each isn’t really equal. Likewise, there’s more theoretical and actual evidence for the existence of the Sasquatch (Bigfoot) than there is for say telepathy. Since sceptics can’t distinguish serious anomalies from trivial ones, well I can’t treat sceptics seriously since when crunch comes to the crunch, they can’t be bothered to do the proper research and make distinctions.

Scientists on the other hand should take everything on their individual merits, and clearly in any scientific field, not all topics have equal merits. Saying life exists on Mars is not in the same league as saying life exists on Venus. Despite that, some topics do have equal merits, but that doesn’t stop scientists from pretending they don’t. Take SETI for example.

SETI (that’s the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) scientists tend to poo-poo Ufology buffs for failing to come up with a UAP ETH (extraterrestrial hypothesis) smoking gun, or any compelling evidence, especially physical evidence for hardcore UAPs, in over six decades. That’s one topic. Of course they conveniently forget that SETI is entirely based on theory and SETI hasn’t produced a smoking gun conclusive of the existence of ETI either, over a near equal five decades of searching. But that’s another topic. However, both topics are in fact equal in that neither has produced a smoking gun that’s ‘killed’ the alien and provided a corpse for study. In fact, the amount of SETI evidence, including physical evidence, is but a short story compared to the full length UAP novel.

There is one other up-close-and-personal reason SETI scientists dump on the UAP ETH and/or ‘ancient astronauts’ is because they have a vested interest in SETI. They have spent careers, building equipment designed to look for alien intelligence out there, often been made fun of by other scientists (and the American Congress) in their hunt for ‘little green men’. It would be a serious blow to their egos, careers, reputations and an actual downright embarrassment if ET proven to be down here all along. So, it’s almost a natural reaction to rubbish any alternative idea. We’ve seen that any number of times in the history of science – Darwinian evolution vs. Lamarckian evolution; the Big Bang cosmology vs. the Steady State cosmology; catastrophism vs. uniformitarianism in geology. Debates have often been controversial, personal and bitter. So it’s interesting to note that when I communicate some of my unorthodox ideas to a well-known SETI scientist, if I get under his skin, at worst I get no response; at best one that starts with “Dear Mr. Prytz”. Now if I say something he considers sensible (by his standards) the reply is “Dear John”. That’s a bit of a double standard too in its own right.

Now when it comes to SETI vs. the UAP ETH, that’s not to say SETI scientists shouldn’t continue to do SETI – they should – nothing ventured, nothing gained. But it gains them nothing to reject out of hand the rival idea that ET is or was down here are well as being up there.

Quite apart from SETI, the majority of scientists, especially physical scientists, usually poo-poo the UAP ETH with a there’s ‘no evidence’ mantra. But such scientists leave themselves wide open to the double standard. Many a scientist will profess a firm belief in something that has absolutely ‘no evidence’ of any kind, conveniently forgetting that they have rubbished other people’s beliefs for having faith in six impossible things that appear on their dining room table prior to breakfast. And so we see here the beginnings of more general double standards.

A prime example of how some scientists have their lack of evidence and belief too is with respect to religion. Even as recently as 2009, a public opinion poll found that a significant (albeit minority) percentage of scientists had a belief in a God that was up close and personal in their lives. There’s not the slightest bit of evidence, physical or otherwise, that God exists. There’s absolutely no evidence for any deity (monotheistic or polytheistic), yet many scientists have no trouble accepting on faith and having a belief in a deity (or deities) sight unseen by anyone and everyone. No one verifiable has seen the monotheistic deity God and all the polytheistic deities are apparently, according to scholars, entirely mythological. Go figure. This essay could just as easily been constructed around a theme of double standards with respect to God: Show Me the Evidence!’ There just isn’t any.

That reminds me of God’s double standard of ‘do as I say, not as I do’. It’s just like God (of the Old Testament) to command “Thou shall not kill” while He goes off and nearly exterminates the entire terrestrial human and animal population vis-à-vis the universal deluge. Anyway, back to the scientist.

There are valid cases within science itself of scientists not only ‘having a lack of evidence for X’s reality but never-the-less a belief in X’s reality too’. Now without meaning to accuse scientists of pure hypocrisy, there are lots of current concepts in science that have absolutely no evidence of any sort apart from the purely theoretical to support them, yet are taken quite seriously by physical scientists. A partial list would include concepts like the Multiverse (there is more than one universe – ours – within the overriding cosmos); the Many Worlds Interpretation of quantum physics; particle physic’s string theory; the Higgs Boson; the possible existence of ten or eleven dimensions; the Ekpyrotic (two string theory [membranes colliding and accounting for the origin of our) Universe theory; and, shock-horror for those interested in SETI , the total lack of any under-the-microscope, hardcore evidence whatsoever for any intelligent life forms anywhere out there other than intelligent terrestrial life forms (humans). Yet it is acceptable for scientists to research these areas without being subjected to having their sanity questioned. I fail to see why the UAP ETH is an exception to this. Even forget the UAP ETH – just the UAP enigma full-stop is off-limits. Be that as it may, it is.

Understandably for scientists, there is one very big and fundamental problem with UAPs. They tend to be unpredictable in time and space, and when they do show up; they don’t stand still and grant you an interview and allow you the leisure of taking out your yardstick or whatever other scientific instrument you care to name and measuring them.

But there are other case histories from the annals of science regarding ‘the nature of the evidence’ that have parallels with UAPs – physical phenomena that are unpredictable in time and space, that don’t stand still; that you can’t poke and prod, and that you can not put under the microscope and , examine at your leisure. These various phenomena; well ball lightning comes to mind; ditto Transient Lunar Phenomena (TLP); and you can’t rewind the clock and prepare for (instruments at the ready) and witness the one-off Tunguska event are akin to UAPs in that scientists lack the means to lock them down, isolate them, and study the unfolding event at their leisure. Yet, it is one rule for one (ball lightning, TLP,Tunguska); one rule for another (UAPs).

So there seems to be a double standard for acceptable evidence here. UAPs have apparently no verifiable evidence and a ‘giggle factor’; ball lightning and TLP have unverifiable evidence but no ‘giggle factor’, yet all of these have theoretical underpinnings that make their existence plausible. In the case of the UAP ETH, it’s the Fermi Paradox – that’s the ‘where are they, if they exist they should be here’ observation.

Ultimately the question here boils down to finding an answer (a smoking gun) to the question that humans have asked and speculated on for thousands of years – are we alone in the universe? There shouldn’t be any double standards employed when it comes down to addressing this issue. There are ultimately four choices: 1) We can choose not to answer the question because the world has bigger priorities than proving the existence of ‘little green men’; 2) we can, as SETI does, search out there, which obviously is a very logical thing to do even though it’s a proverbial ‘needle in the haystack’ search; 3) we can search down here – ancient astronauts and UAPs – which is a positive in that it restricts the haystack’s geography required to be examined, but on probability is less likely statistically that the needle will be there (another parallel being someone looking for a lost key underneath the lamppost just because the light’s better there); 4) or we can do both – search out there AND search down here and not put our quest for the ‘little green men’ into an either/or basket. Unfortunately, that’s way too idealistic a position to have accepted given the historical double standard already taken.

In conclusion, when it comes to the scientific community and evidence, there is often a double standard employed. There’s not one shred of physical evidence for string theory, yet it’s an accepted area of funded academic research and has been for decades. On the UAP issue, many scientists while happy to accept the accuracy of eyewitness testimony when it provides data that turns a UAP event into an IFO, for some strange reason reject eyewitness testimony when it reinforces the unidentified or unknown status of the UAP event. That’s another double standard. Go figure!

Of course the ultimate conclusion to be drawn is that scientists are human too and have their own agendas, backgrounds and personalities which can and do colour their belief systems. Apart from the ever logical Mr. Spock, is there any human, past or present (and probably future) who hasn’t at one time or other employed a double standard? Not that that makes the double standard acceptable of course, but theoretical idealism and practical reality is two very separate things.

So, the double standard fails because though sceptics and scientists rally against the UAP ETH, and perhaps they are right in their conclusions, sceptics and scientists aren’t all-knowing and often base their conclusions on faith or belief. They too are human with all the accompanying baggage that implies and they can, and do, make mistakes, and such is the case I believe when it comes to labelling the pro UAP ETH a pseudoscience. Once upon a time Galileo Galilei and Nicolaus Copernicus would have been considered pseudo-astronomers; Heinrich Schliemann (of Troy fame) someone who dabbled in pseudo-archaeology; Charles Darwin was a pseudo-naturalist; and Alfred Wegener, obviously put forth a theory (continental drift) that could only be described as pseudo-geology at the time. Even originally Albert Einstein was so far out in left field that his scientific seniors and superiors could easily have described his physics as pseudo-physics. Only time and history will be the judge whether or not the UAP ETH is or was pseudoscience or real science.

Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon: Could Life Be Swimming Beneath the Many Oceans in Space?

I’d be totally shocked if we didn’t find life right here in our Solar System, let alone in our galaxy. All the elements for life, as we know it, is everywhere in the Cosmos.

And there’s water everywhere!

Astronomers have spotted more than 100 new potential alien planets, including one in the fourth-closest star system to the sun, a new study reports.

This haul of newfound possible exoplanets, which have yet to be confirmed as bona fide alien worlds, comes from a new analysis of 20 years’ worth of data gathered by the HIRES (High Resolution Echelle Spectrometer) instrument at the Keck Observatory in Hawaii.
