Bruce Duensing Ponders the Contactees

Bruce Duensing, at Intangible Materiality, on the contactees. A very different perspective: The Gravitational Field of the Contactees.
In thinking about what do "they" want, Bruce puts forth:
And so we ask, "What do they want?" Consider for a moment a one word reply. Nothing.

Maybe they do, maybe they don't. For much of UFO, anomalous and paranormal interactions, maybe the answer is that "they" don't want anything. They just are.

Bruce considers the interactions between contactees and the entities and presents some interesting perspectives;for example, are our desires and anxieties contributors to the experience?

I can never do Duensing justice so I'll stop now. Visit his site and read his article if you want something new to turn over regarding the contactee experience.

I'll just say that, while I remain utterly inarticulate as to why abductees, contactees and other experiencers of high strangeness should be considered seriously and not just as some quaint yet embarrassing aberration better left alone if one is a "serious" UFO researcher, it is important to explore this realm, without the finality of the decree "they were all frauds."

Greg Bishop and the Name Game

Fun and interesting post on Greg Bishop's UFO Mystic: The Name Game.
The Name Game

It has been noted that names of witnesses to UFOs and other strange phenomena sometimes repeat themselves. An article by Frank Altomonte references an obscure 1957 case from my local area which is significant in this regard.

The original account was related by Coral and Jim Lorenzen in their 1967 book Flying Saucer Occupants (which is actually one of my favorite UFO books.

For the rest, you'll have to visit Greg's blog!

When I was a kid, The Outer Limits was at the top of my list for favorite TV shows. Even though many an episode scared me I remained intrigued. I never missed an episode, and many of those shows stayed with me. For example, the bug eyed egg headed aliens in the woods, or this one, shown here. An amazing show, a great show, and the remake doesn't come close.

Bruce Rux on BOA

Fantastic job by Tim Binnall at Binnall of America, who interviewed Bruce Rux, author of Hollywood vs The Aliens and Architects of the Underworld -- also, Rux is an actor, playwright, . . . yet he doesn't have a "web presence" as Tim put it, and he's kind of a mysterious figure. Adding to this intriguing aura is the interesting fact Rux works for Wackenhut, which, as any conspiracy esoteric Fortean junkie knows, is a juicy tidbit, since the shadowy MIB like implications of that corporation is well known, as Rux himself happily acknowledges. This is a three part interview; much to think about as Rux and Tim discuss the intentional disinformation planted by government into our media and popular culture.

Be sure you listen to this series of interviews. Great work, and as always, thanks to Tim Binnall for bringing us these great interviews for free.
