Coulthart vs Kaku

 
In the last few months I have lost interest slightly in UFO's. I have not even yet done a UFO Disclosure 2024 video on HPANWO TV and it's now March. I know why I feel this way; it's because of the frustration and despondency of the current situation, the treachery of "the two Mikes", the repeal of the Schumer amendment and the scorn hurled at David Grusch. The endless SCIF's and "no comments", for example: https://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.com/2023/10/access-denied.html. The Disclosure process has ground to a halt. But now something has happened that may serve as some much needed impetus to start the Disclosure train rolling again. Ross Coulthart has done another interview, this time with none other than Prof. Michio Kaku, one of the world's top theoretical physicists. Kaku has written numerous books and presented numerous documentaries, all of which have become pop science classics. The fact that Prof. Kaku acknowledges the evidence in favour of UAP is highly significant. He rejects the debunkers and feels positive that there is a huge amount of evidence that is slowly emerging. He says, in opposition to the fundamental charter of the skeptic movement, that the burden of proof no longer lies with UFO believers, but with UFO deniers. UAP are obviously the product of a technological civilization, but the five observables make it highly unlikely that they are all from the secret space programme, even if this explains a few of them. SSP craft would not be operating near a naval battle group. Another reason is the antiquity of the phenomenon; UFO's predate the SSP by centuries. It is possible for alien species to reach the earth if they have sufficient technology, says Michio, because one can travel faster than light through wormholes. Therefore if extraterrestrial intelligences exist, we should not be surprised when we see them turn up on our doorstep. It is likely that life is very common in the universe because the chemistry of life everywhere out there in space. He thinks we may not be able to communicate with the ET's on their level because we're like squirrels being studied by humans. Michio has not been approached by the government to help "prepare the people" for ET Disclosure and he doubts if such a thing is happening to his fellow scientists. He thinks we should not advertize our presence to the universe, although it's a bit of a fait accompli; they know we're here already. The general public would be happy with the revelation we are not alone. He believes Roswell was covered up because of the Cold War, but he is not totally sure it was aliens. He has a more open mind than most scientists when it comes to God and religion. It's possible we might regard aliens as gods even if they are not, because of their higher technology. Michio repeats what Carl Sagan recommended to alien abductees, the next time you're taken to an alien spacecraft, steal something! Without evidence, you only have hearsay.

As much as I enjoyed hearing Prof. Kaku's input, I still think he doesn't quite understand the entire issue, especially not the dishonesty and fervour of UFO deniers. For example, when it comes to alien artefacts, they do exist. People have produced physical material of extraterrestrial manufacture, but when they do it is falsely debunked, see: https://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.com/2021/02/pentagon-foia-on-debris.html and: https://hpanwo-radio.blogspot.com/2017/12/programme-259-podcast-irena-scott.html. I hope Sam Harris watches Michio and Ross' discussion because I know he respects Kaku a lot. Sam Harris was at one point seriously crossing the aisle to accept the UAP issue, but then the skeptics sat him down and fed him the Mick West Kool-Aid. After that he announced that he's "changed his mind", see: https://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.com/2023/02/sam-harris-on-ufos.html. So, generally this interview was a good thing, it is a step forward after a few months of standing still. It has come at a good time as well because the Sol Foundation has released the videos of its conference and they are outstanding, see: https://www.youtube.com/@_SolFoundation. So things are definitely looking up.

Crazy Plane Lady back on TV

 
Tiffany Gomas, the Crazy Plane Lady, has once again emerged from her hermit cabin in the woods to do another exclusive television interview. This time she had a brief slot on Prime Time with Alex Stein. Alex Stein is a comedian who started off on social media, but became so successful he has effectively joined the mainstream. The programme begins with a rather unsubtle product placement ad for the Italian restaurant chain Olive Garden; and Alex and Ms Gomas do a rather gross Lady and the Tramp imitation of sharing a bowl of spaghetti. Alex then announces that his friend Jimmy is such a big fan that he is naming his baby daughter Tiffany after Her Craziness. The programme then cuts to another scene later when the baby is two months old. Despite showing lots of photos of her smiling, Tiffany Jr does not look very cheerful when she meets her namesake. Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PrH1m5mAL-o. There is no discussion in this show about Tiffany Gomas' past or the reason she achieved this level of public prominence in the first place. It's possible she has now changed strategy and plans to leave all that behind to become simply another one of these "famous because she's famous" kinds of celebrity.

Giant Snake Discovered

 
This story might give a few readers nightmares. A giant snake has been discovered in the Amazon rainforest. The monster serpent is twenty-six feet long and weighs thirty-one stone. Its head is about the same size as a human's. It has been christened the Northern Green Anaconda, Eunectes akayima. It is not venomous, but still is potentially very dangerous. It is a predator and extremely strong; and it kills its prey by "constriction", wrapping its body around them and literally crushing them to death. It can swim very well, but, being a reptile, breathes air on land with lungs. The discoverer, amusingly and unusually, was a Dutch wildlife TV presenter with the name of Freek Vonk. There is a video that shows Prof. Vonk swimming fully clothed through some water right next to the snake. He gesticulates with excitement as he approaches the beast very closely; and with as little fear as Steve Irwin. Source: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-13103951/Worlds-biggest-snake-discovered-Amazon-rainforest-Huge-anaconda-measures-26ft-long-weighs-440lbs-head-size-humans.html. If you happen to come across a Northern Green Anaconda I would recommend treating it with caution and respect. Observe it from a safe distance. That snake could easily take out a human if it wanted to; and snapping a few sensationalized selfies with it is not a casual undertaking. As enormous as that specimen is, there may be even bigger Northern Green Anacondas out there, or other new species yet to be discovered. There are native legends of snakes in the Amazon, such as the "Yacumama", that dwarf even this new discovery. A discovery like this teaches us that we know less about our world than most people think. There are vast regions that have barely been visited, or even never visited; another example: https://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.com/2016/12/more-pyramids-in-antarctica.html. Therefore, why are people incredulous that there might by a large animal living in the deep waters of a Scottish lake or walking upright through the forests of North America? I call for a "utopian zoological season", where we drop all our preconceptions and indoctrination, and carry out more rational investigations. Let's just give these ideas a chance!

Houdini's Secret

 
A long time I wrote an article on how a lot of modern stories about the magician and skeptic Harry Houdini had been selectively edited, see: https://hpanwo.blogspot.com/2009/05/houdini-code.html. I have come across another example, this time in a book from 1968, Voices From Beyond by Brad Steiger. It addresses Houdini's investigation into the medium Margery Crandon. It was regarded as his greatest challenge; was he, the ultimate fake psychic cracker, about to encounter the real thing at last? Margery had a reputation for openness and honesty. She had been willing to cooperate with psychical researchers for her entire career. The scientists applied every know method at their disposal for outwitting trickery. She was tied up, sealed off in cupboards and gagged. She passed with flying colours every time. Skeppers will never accept that a psychic is real; they always have an unshakeable assumption that the psychic is using fraudulent methods of some kind. If the skeppa can't find the method; it doesn't matter, it is still there, lying deep somewhere inside the medium's chicanery in a place that hasn't been located yet... but it will be one day... promise! The book claims that accusations of dishonesty cut both ways. Harry Houdini was regarded as the ultimate challenge. Like James Randi, he offered a cash incentive to anybody who could prove themselves real under laboratory conditions. Margery was a physical medium whose powers were said to move objects and produce spirit voices, often that of her dead brother Walter Stinson. In the 1920's a committee of parapsychologists organized by Scientific American ran a project on Margery Crandon and in 1924 invited Houdini to assist them. Houdini suggested a test that involved Mrs Crandon ringing an electric bell by means of psychokinesis, a skill she regularly professed. However, when the séance started the voice of Margery's guide boomed out, instructing the committee secretary, Malcolm Bird, to take the bell out of the room and examine it. Byrd did so and saw that the bell had been sabotaged. Rubber insulators had been placed over the contacts to stop it ringing. Source: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/6005208-voices-from-beyond. Houdini had arrived with the bell at the laboratory, but nobody thought to check him to see if he were trying to pull a fast one. Modern reports of this study tell a different tale to Steiger's sources. As with Project Alpha, see: https://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.com/2014/12/james-randi-dishonest-liar.html, we don't know for certain that this accusation against Houdini is true, it was never formally investigated; but we must rid ourselves of this notion that skeptics are always going to behave openly and are immune to the moral weaknesses all other people suffer.

The Phantom Postbox Monster of Old Dartford Town

 
The police in Dartford, Kent are currently investigating a heinous crime. An unknown local artist nicknamed "Danksy" has been decorating the community's pillar-boxes. One has been painted to look like the popular TV character Mr Blobby, one has been sprayed gold and another now looks like a Cadbury Creme Egg. Kent Police are currently on the lookout for somebody who was at large in the area between the 19th to the 21st of February. They warn the public not to approach him, he might be dangerous; instead call the Kent Police's special incident room that they have just set up. Their spokesman said: "A man was arrested on the 13th of February in connection with the gold spray-painting and has since been released on bail until the 4th May while inquiries continue." The locals have mixed feelings about this depravity. Source: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-kent-68367893. Seriously, only in this day and age will the police "make inquiries" into somebody giving a little bit of uniqueness and colour to public property; yet when thugs smash the windows of your house they will just post you the insurance forms and close the case. You might ask why the police and judiciary would prioritize this offence over so many others, others that the public are far more concerned about; but if you ask that question then you have misunderstood the situation. The crimes that concern people the most, that is violence, vandalism and theft, are useful to the establishment because they frighten, depress and demoralize. Criminals who commit those offences are what one of my favourite journalists calls "clients of power", see: https://odysee.com/@MorgothReviews:5/the-banality-of-the-british-police:f. I suspect more people approve of "Danksy's" daubs than will admit. Does it brighten up their day? Does it add wonder, hope and curiosity to their lives? Does it make them think for a moment that they are more than just consumers in global factory farm?... Yes, and that is why it has to go. It is very like Jam's garden, see background links below. I think that is why I love Tony Grounds' TV miniseries Gone to Seed so much. It tells the story of an idealistic man who builds a garden centre which inspires and enriches the lives of the local community; "An island of beauty amidst a sea of grey." The man also says: "Making people happy; that's what I'm all about... This place is the jewel in the bobble hat of East London!" And then, in accordance with an all too familiar dark logic, somebody has to come along and "plastickify" it, see: https://hpanwo.blogspot.com/2014/01/gone-to-seed.html. If "Danksy" wants to come to Oxford and try his hand at our own pillarboxes I might be out strolling late and night and come across him with his brush and paints, hurriedly working in the shadows. I'll ask him: "Are you the one who has been painting all the postboxes?" He'll reply: "yeah." with trepidation. I will smile and reply: "I never saw you." and walk on. Just before I turn the corner I shall look back at him and whisper: "Thank you!"

The Happy Shopper

 
For some reason, all my happiest experiences at the moment seem to be taking place when I go grocery shopping. Just a couple of weeks after the Butlerian Jihad in Tesco's, see background link below, humanity has won another victory against the forces of robotic domination. I entered a branch of the Cooperative and before I even got through the door a member of staff approached me with a worried and apologetic expression on his face. "I'm very sorry." he began. "We're experiencing technical problems at the moment which means we can only accept cash payments." Do I need to tell you what my reaction was?... As I grabbed a basket and went off to the shelves a young man who looked like a student entered through the sliding doors and the staff member told him the same news. He shrugged. "Okay, I'll have to go somewhere else then." I spontaneously launched into a street lecture: "Hey, mate. Use cash! If you don't the government will dictate to you what you buy, when you buy it and whether you can! It's essential for freedom! You have no control over your life otherwise." He glared at me irritably and walked out. A tall man in a parka nearby said to me: "Nice try, but they won't listen." I laughed and pointed at my beanie: "I try to keep my tin foil hat hidden under this one." When I got to the till I said to the man serving me: "Ah, I'm in liberty central. How long till the Deep State regain control of this CoOp?" He gazed at me nonplussed. He was Mediterranean looking, possibly Albanian, and clearly his English lessons hadn't covered popular conspiracy theories yet. As I left the shop I raised my fist in the air and yelled: "Stop the New World Order." One of the other cashiers smiled and waved; he knows me quite well because I'm a regular in there. Hours later I still feel a warm glow when I think about this incident.
