1927- A Space Odyssey

I've asked before what can AI do; perhaps an easier question is what can AI not do? I've just seen something that stunned me. An AI was given a very simple instruction: to remake Stanley Kubrick's 1968 film 2001- A Space Odyssey in the style of Fritz Lang. Fritz Lang was an Austrian filmmaker who became one of the most celebrated creators in the earliest period of cinema, when films were almost all monochrome and silent. They usually had scores, but these were often performed by musicians live in the auditorium. His futuristic steampunk sci-fi classics include Metropolis and Woman in the Moon. The result of the AI instruction is this video: It is amusing, but also chilling. The method is very simple. Just show the AI all of Lang's early filmography and then show it 2001. Of course a human could do this; in fact such anachronisms are the basis of a lot of comedy, but I bet the AI made its own remake far quicker. It has also done Blade Runner, see:, and Casablanca in the style of Denis Villeneuve, see: What else? I've already covered AI art in the background links. What about music? This is the country singer Johnny Cash: only it's not. It's an AI performing the Eurodance track Barbie Girl by Aqua with Johnny's sound and style. What about books? Could AI write a new edition of Roswell Rising in the style of William Shakespeare? Yes, easily. I can't imagine what that would be like! Anything humans can do, AI can do better. What job will not be forfeit in the AI future? And if you think "It's alright, we'll still need people to program the computers." No, they can program themselves. This is why AI has boomed in sophistication in just the last couple of years. They are writing their own upgrades; and they can do it a thousand times faster than any human coder. What's more, there's no way the government will not find a way to weaponize this technology against us, like they do everything else. I'm not sure what we can do about this. I think this is one of those wait-and-trust issues. This technology could be used to do some really good things as well. For example, Doctor Who fans have spent years looking for the missing episodes of the show. In the early years, the BBC used to delete recordings from its archive to save money or space, or because of broadcasting rights. Fans have scoured the world to locate the missing episodes and have found a few of them, but it looks like some of them are lost forever because no recording at all survives. An AI could recreate them. You could enter the script and production design together with surviving recordings to compare them with and hey presto! Out would come a very accurate reconstruction, even if it's not an exact facsimile. The AI William Hartnell would be indistinguishable from the real First Doctor.

CIA Does Roswells

The Daily Mail has just published yet another UFO story with extraordinary implications. According to their research, the US Central Intelligence Agency has a special unit that travels all across the world salvaging the debris from crashed extraterrestrial spacecraft. Multiple sources have informed the newspaper that the CIA has a "system in place" ready whenever a UFO appears. They have dealt with at least nine incidents across the world since 2003. They even have a method for discerning when UFO's are still "cloaked", invisible to the naked eye. They have two "non-human" artefacts that are completely intact. This sounds very like the NATO organization detailed in this Richplanet show: The unit has a name that is both strangely banal and Orwellian at the same time: the Office of Global Access. This is a division of the Science and Technology Directorate, which is actually not part of the CIA, it's part of the Department of Homeland Security; not that there's that much of a difference these days. Its official role is in biological and electronic warfare; it has a facility at Plum Island and its replacement in Kansas. There is no mention of the OGA on its public website though so it is probably a black budget setup. The Mail's three sources all spoke on condition of anonymity to avoid reprisals. It is possible they are some of the same insiders David Grusch has been interviewing, see: This revelation has come at a time when the NDAA 2024, the so called "UAP Disclosure act", is due to pass into law, see: Source:
The OGA's reach includes the ability to perform operations behind enemy lines in hostile countries, indicating that there is some kind of global policy in place that most if not all nations comply with, even if they are antagonistic towards the United States and locked in conflict with it. The resulting research projects are outsourced, something else I've always thought, see: The author Jeffrey T. Richelson has written a book called The US Intelligence Community in which he mentions the OGA, except the book was published in 1985, long before 2003, so the OGA must be older than the article says. The book does not mention UFO crashes, but says the OGA did more conventional find-and-secure missions to recover material from enemy countries. It was set up be somebody called Doug Wolfe; any relation to Karl? The sources said some of the people involved in the research may not even realize they are dealing with non-human technology due to the intense security and compartmentalization of information. This ties in with what Dr Irena Scott said about the Battelle Memorial Institute and Wright-Patterson AFB, see: At the moment there is an attempt to revise the NDAA in order to make it less powerful. The congress people behind the attack all had their campaigns funded by the military-industrial complex. Are these secret sources trying to slip information out around this barricade of counterDisclosure? Ross Coulthart has warned that it may be better for the government to come clean now or risk a "catastrophic leak", one that will cause an "uncontrolled Disclosure" consisting of decisive media scoops. This will put them on the back foot and cause worse post-Disclosure chaos, see: However, that might be the only way to get the job done; in which case, I say go for it. The alternative means a continuation of the Truth Embargo which is infinitely worse.

Rethinking MH370

Several people have asked me to comment on this subject. A Reddit thread appeared in August digging up a pair of obscure videos that were originally posted on YouTube in 2014. They were dismissed and forgotten at the time; today one of the originals is only visible on an archive. The two videos apparently show the same thing. A Boeing 777 airliner is flying through a cloudy sky; it turns sharply to the right at the same time as a number of spherical or ovoid objects fly past very quickly. A few seconds later three more objects enter the frame, maybe the same ones re-entering; and they start flying around the aircraft in circles. They keep formation at an equal distance apart and match each other's movements precisely. After a few seconds there is a bright flash of light and everything vanishes, the plane and UAP's. The videos were republished by somebody called Ashton Forbes who describes himself thus: "Citizen Journalist, Seeker of Truth, Organizer of MH370x, Solver of MH370". Source: He contests that the disappearing airliner is the missing Malaysian Airlines flight 370. I did not believe him at first and dismissed the videos as a hoax. In this day and age it is difficult to do otherwise. Producing fake digital images that are so good they are indistinguishable from reality can be done so easily that photographic evidence simply no longer carries the same weight that it used to and there is a terrible signal-to-noise ratio problem as a result. Here is a good piece of such work: I posted the comment: "It's too easy to fake imagery these days. Even if this were real, who would believe it?" This is the current burden for all kinds of paranormal research, UFOlogy, Loch Ness, ghosts etc. Mick West made a series of post debunking it too; and it's not often I agree with him. Why MH370 went off course and lost communication is a mystery, but the plane's fate was not. It flew away over the Indian Ocean until it ran out of fuel and crashed into the sea. The wreckage cannot be found, and probably never will be, because it disintegrated into small pieces on impact and sank into the abyss, see background links below.
However, people have made me aware of some updates. Ashton Forbes has done a number of interviews where he provides more details. He confidently and coherently dismisses the criticism of the skeptics, for example see: and: These videos allegedly are real images of MH370 that were leaked to social media by an unnamed whistleblower; although Ashton thinks it is somebody called Edward C Lin, a man convicted in the USA of spying for China. Chillingly, the UFO's therefore seem to the "taking" the aircraft and the people in it, as they are rumoured to do with others, like the pilot Fred Valentich. One of the videos was captured by an infrared satellite and the other by an interceptor drone that was in the vicinity at the same time. I don't have a final answer to this conundrum right now and this article is an interim report. I will need to look deeper and maybe wait for new information. At the moment, however, I am not as certain as I used to be that MH370 really did just run out of fuel and crash into the sea.

"The Truth is No Defence"

There is a new show on Richplanet TV about some new information regarding two of the supposed victims of the Manchester Arena bombing of 2017. This is all very interesting, but the most significant part of the programme, as well as disturbing, is the prologue. Richard D Hall reveals an update in his legal battle; see the background links for details. Richard continues to defend himself defiantly against the accusations of the plaintiffs who contest that Richard's publications about the incident in Manchester are a form of harassment. The obvious response from anybody in that situation is simply to plead fair comment. This is a common defence in a libel case, but the plaintiffs are applying to have all Richard's evidence excluded. If they have their way, the trial will proceed under the assumnption that the official story is true. Source: It reminds me of another similar trial, that of the researcher Ernst Zündel. Zündel was convicted several times in Canada of expressing opinions about a subject specifically prohibited by Canadian law. When he went to court he tried to defend himself by saying "Look, I can prove what I'm saying about this subject is true." He was not permitted to table this testimony in court or even subject it to an open debate. The judge did not dispute Zündel's assertions; he simply stated that the opinion was prohibted, regardless of whether it was true or false and so, to coin an infamous catchphrase: the truth is no defence. I understand why many people will find Zündel's views offensive, but surely you realize that if we allow the state to silence people for expressing a viewpoint because it offends us then we enter a very dark place indeed. Something similar happened when Ian R Crane tried to defend Tony Farrell at his police disciplinary. The boss said "You might be right, but it doesn't matter." Source: What kind of law is this where what is true or false doesn't matter!? How can Richard successfully defend himself in this case when the very basis of his reasons for publishing his material is struck from the record? Hopefully Richard will be able to prevent this application. I'm not a solicitor, but I would say his evidence is totally relevent because it concerns whether the Hibberts were actually there, which is central to their claim against him. I'm pleased to say that the community has rallied round Richard and stood up against this obvious injustice. Richard has raised most of the money he needs for his legal costs, but he will need as much as possible so please do send him some more if you can, see:

Crazy Plane Lady Update 2

Tiffany Gomas has once again broken her intermittent silence, this time in another exclusive interview with Inside Edition. This was carried out at her home in Grand Prairie, next to the airport where she had her experience. She tells the reporter that it was "the worst moment of my entire life." She didn't go out for four weeks because of feeling ashamed and embarrassed. She reveals that she was on her way to a family holiday in Florida when she flew into a rage. However the only other detail she provides is one we've already heard, that another passenger stole her wireless earbuds and she lost her temper. She then attempts to explain the strange things she said as nothing more than a "figure of speech". When asked about why she felt the aircraft was in danger she said it was simply as a result of her altercation and declined to elaborate because of "legal reasons". She says she loves to travel, but then it is revealed she has now been banned from American Airlines; one wonders why it took them this long. She seems keen to show the reporter around her voluminous house. Source: The revelations in this very brief interview make no sense. They do not meet the necessary testimonial weight for what happened to her on that day in June. Her body language is shifty and evasive. She noticeably leans back, away from the reporter and the camera. Her hands in are in a typical defensive position, clasped in front of her crotch. I don't believe her story at all. What's more she seems to be using her marketing skills on herself right now with this new website in which she describes herself as a "viral personality", see: Clearly she understands the potential of social media infamy, but it still leaves us all in the dark about what she really saw on that plane.

Breaking News!- There is No Afterlife

Stop the press, guys. We have something really original in our hands!... Actually, we don't. Eternal post-mortem oblivion, the idea that the afterlife does not exist, has been a common belief since ancient times. The theory goes that a person's essence, in terms of their mind or soul, is a product of the brain. Probably as early as prehistoric ages people worked out that the brain is connected to thought, feeling and wakefulness. If somebody receives a head injury or illness it can cause them to black out, become confused or experience long-term mental impairment. According to an article somebody shared on social media, there is no way the afterlife can exist because there is no known mechanism in the laws of physics for it to do so. Even if somehow our consciousness existed in the quantum realm, it could not interact with the neurons in our brains while we are alive. It cites none other than that smiling Simeon of the small screen, Prof. Brian Cox himself. Source: However, another scientist, Sir Roger Penrose, proposes that the brain can do that because it has quantum computing abilities, see: Even if that turns out not to be true and the plausibility problem remains, the evidence gathered by many psychical researchers over a long period of time needs explaining, as I detail in the background portal link below. Many materialists argue that the concept of the afterlife is a cultural and psychological safety net generated by mortality salience, the knowledge of our own inevitable impending demise. They argue that afterlife delusions will arise inevitably in any human society, and indeed with any species that is intelligent enough to experience mortality salience; in fact there is evidence that elephants share it with us. They say that the afterlife is nothing more than wishful thinking. However, I have explained many times that the wishful thinking argument cuts both ways, for example: It is impossible to prove that the afterlife exists; except waiting until it is our turn, of course. Despite this, the case for eternal post-mortem oblivion is also unproven. Its reality is dependent upon certain assumptions about brain function being true. This is an uncertainty we all have to live with and die with; although, as I detail in the portal below, I think we have good cause to be hopeful.

Look Behind You, Samantha!

There was recently a rather charming typically 20-teens collaboration between the International Space Station and an internet science enthusiast. Since 2006 "Smarter Every Day" has produced hundreds of videos gaining millions of views. Its presenter has travelled to places as far afield as the North Pole and the Oval Office to bring interesting videos about all kinds of curious things. Samantha Cristoforetti has come up on HPANWO before. She is the most experienced European astronaut, carrying out a mission in space of 199 days and on one occasion during a spacewalk she reacts with alarm to something unusual. It's interesting that she is immediately hushed by her Russian colleague, as if he knows something she doesn't yet, see: However, this is not Samantha's only UFO encounter, although she probably doesn't know it. On another occasion she is making a video inside the ISS in association with Smarter Every Day. She demonstrates how the "cupola module" works, an earth observation bay on the space station with seven windows. She opens and closes the shutters in front of the camera, but as she does so two strange objects fly past the windows, outside in space. They fit the description of the "fastwalkers" reported by other astronauts like Gordon Cooper and Gennady Strekalov, see:
The objects cannot be seen very easily; they are either very distant or very small. You need to use the YouTube full screen function to pick them up, but you can clearly see a pair of white objects flit across the bottom right of the central window pane, changing their velocity and course radically. Source: This is one of the five observables. I'm not the first person to notice this; in fact a number of others did and told Tyler from Secure Team 10. He went on to make a video about it, see: A lot of people accuse Tyler of promoting fake stuff, so please do go to the original video and see for yourself that he is definitely not in this instance. This is one of those rare occasions in space where there is a channel of information independent from the usual ones that are controlled by NASA or Roscosmos, where they can't just cut the feed and blame it on "technical problems". Oddly enough, if you scroll through the comments under the Smarter Every Day video nobody there has noticed it, probably because the SED fans are not the kind of people who also watch Tyler. I decided to put a comment there myself with a timestamp and the words: "What's that outside the window?" A few days later a user called @CSXRobert replied to me: "Part of the ISS"... I'll leave him to work it out for himself.
