"Learn. That would be. Of It's funny, reminds me of idea that came up in another podcast with John Heads which I think people enjoy this one definitely enjoy about the idea space that there is out there some kind of conceptual space that we have some relationship to, but it is not nearly as much under control as we like to. Thank and it's funny. How did you get into this You know the technology determinist stride. WHO believed that? Technology is manipulating us in some way for its own ends Marshall McLuhan had this line that we're simply the sex organs of technology and I don't know that people believe it. cognitively directed manipulation, but but that we are less than control than we think. I like the idea that there are these different conceptual spaces may maybe we don't have full control over whether or not? It's a another intelligence doing it. There does often seem to be something a little bit less. Autonomous and we like to imagine that's too and. I just want to say when last thing to that is that I did do some research on creativity and people who were in immensely creative, okay, so very creative, what was found was that they often felt that the ideas that they had came from external agents that they would you know and a lot of them actually believed it so they they attributed the ideas that they had like John Nash Beautiful Mind He believed in aliens. I don't know if you know that and a lot of the people that I encountered they. They believed that they that they didn't you know these people? Some of these people were studied with EKG's and things like that and more is and what they found was that when they were in a super creative state, a certain part of their brain, which shut down so that it did appear to these people that there was an extra Asian, but it was them. So, I don't know you know. The knows a good place to end, so let me ask you the question wrong. He's because podcast, which is you've recommended a bunch of great books in this conversations if you want to. Repeat those organizations that is totally fine, but books that have influenced duty would recommend. So I have if people are interested in this particular topic I, have three great books for them and the first one is by Jacques Valet who was is an incredible person. worked on the Proto Internet. Mola's valley, and it's called passport to Mongolia and he wrote it in nineteen, sixty eight, and he's the first person to have kind of gone through the historical record and looked at various aerial phenomena said that Goodwin Passport Tim Goania by Jacques Fellay another book, which was book encounter for me, whereas by my colleague Jeffrey Cripple at Rice University and his book is called authors of the impossible and it's. It's a an incredibly beautiful book. he has a chapter there on Jacques Belly. And then for people were interested just to end. You know what? The investigators journalists You know what they have to say about. The UFO's Leslie Cain wrote a great book called General's go on the record UFO's. And that's that's just your basic kind of good. You know this is what they've said so those are the the three books that I would have on this topic and your book is American. Cosmic, UFO's religion and Technology Data Walsh Basilica. Thank you very much. Thank you as it was fun. Thank you to Denote Walsh Basilica for being here. Thank you for being here. Hope you enjoyed this. You're welcome to give me your feedback.

"ufo" Discussed on The Ezra Klein Show
"Was quite I thought there's assassinate. Her faith was questioned because she questioned Gosh. She questioned the belief in God and that's something that you can do in Catholicism and you are quote. Unquote required to believe in certain things, but. It doesn't mean you can't struggle to believe because no because Catholics. Generally know that you can't make yourself believe I can't make myself believe. On five eight right I'm five four I can't make myself believe I. AM therefore if it goes against my reason, you bring that to your confession, you know, and you talk about it, and that's how they work it out in the Catholic fake. Now there's price is called private revelation. Public revelation public revelation is Jesus walked on water and he. He had a virgin birth. Those things are set you. You're obligated to leave them. There's a purgatory your you whether or not it's it's physical or or mature. non-material doesn't matter you believe in it. These are these dogmas in there. You're obligated to believe in them now. Whether or not you struggle to believe in them is another story. I hope that makes sense that that does so now. I want to go. Into a little bit of the story of Your Book. which is you start this new? Your intention is to study the world of people who are looking UFO's through the lens of Religious Studies, the scholarly effort it's published by Oxford University press fat. Check the whole thing. But the book also ends up being something of a first person travelogue. As you see some things, you can't explain you meet people. You didn't expect to meet, and you find both yourself in them some changed. Can you talk a bit about your own journey on this? Absolutely, so this was a struggle. I doesn't academic. You love it when you research surprises you like I. You know it's like wow. Really, that's what that's. What was going on like. When I talk about purgatory in my first book. I didn't expect to find that at all and so. As I went into the second book I thought. This is going to be an easy books right because it's very, it lends itself so well to religion because we can't prove that these things existed yet. So many people believe in them so this'll be easy well. It wasn't easy because what happened. Was I? I met? Normal people who experienced UFO seen UFO's believed they were in touch with you. If those and some of them lived near me, so I was able to talk to them in review them in this is the south, so there's kind of a hospitality here, so we eat together. Our kids would play together and things like that, so I would really get an insight into. How this affected them in K., and so what I found though was that a lot of scientists and people affiliated with. Three letter agencies for want of a better term and the government were also interested in them, and that's surprise me at first. I thought what? Why are they interested? Do you know this is something that doesn't exist? Remember I'm an atheist about UFO's so i. don't actually believe you know. Of course they couldn't believe an actually did believe in fact, some of them had experiences some believe they had crashed parts things like that. In fact, the first chapter opens with me taking a friend of mine who is in academic and a very well known scientist with me to a place in New Mexico..
"ufo" Discussed on Truth Be Told
"And there's there's a lot of other of the story that seems to be one of the most credible ufo sightings that we've seen what I'm being critical of is what's been released right okay. What was released doesn't tell the story it doesn't it doesn't seal the deal. Okay The JIMBO video. Where you see this thing rotating and you hear the guy say. Oh it's rotating yeah well that's a flare rotating okay from it's an infrared flare from the gain being you know high enough to catch this object. And what's what people don't notice as every time you see that flair rotate has spikes on it. And you see the spikes rotating in a way. That aircraft couldn't possibly do right but what you're missing is when that thing rotates every time it rotates the sky the clouds bump a little. That's telling you that's something inside the pod. There's a little filter maybe on the front of the pot. A little know that's rotating. Maybe it's a won't be polarized. It'd be something else. And that rotates okay. The clouds jumped just a tiny bit. So it's a one to one as this rotates that these bounce every time it does these bounce so that told me okay. That's that's a systemic era that that goes to the pod. That's not actually really happening in your life. Okay all right and I'm sorry okay. The weapons officer said. Look it's rotating. Yeah the filter was rotating. He's looking at the infrared to. I mean he fooled and they'll say well these guys know their stuff inside out yesterday do okay. But why? He said it's rotating. Was He talking about this? This flair rotating. Maybe he saw something visually that we couldn't see again. Not Enough information provided. I hope we get more video footage. You could take a look because I really like the know more I to I love your description of this. I love because people do love to jump right ahead to. Oh I know what this was. This was a ufo means. It's an extraterrestrial craft. Both want it to be an extra we both we both do in. The vast majority of cases is not an often. I think I don't have knowledge but I think why couldn't that be a test plane? Why couldn't it could be so many other things? There's things have been flying that are black projects that have been also trailed by other aircraft that are doing data collection for the by project. You know when people say look chasing. They're chasing it right. Oh my gosh. They're chasing this. Gigantic thing is to get you a father chasing it. Well look it was a board cube plank to the sky then. I might agree. Yeah that's definitely something pretty exotic but if it's an aircraft looking thing then chances are probably one of ours you know. Do you know how many times they send up a plane to do that kind of testing and he never send it up alone. It's always trailed by by another aircraft. Conventional aircraft that can be recognized. You know make sense logically and I love. I just got to bring that back in the world. I need a little bit of the science on it. Got to the point. Something out your to captain. This is your ship but I got to point something out. Okay I don't have all the answers. I know we don't have all the answers and I know that what I'm saying so definitive authoritative in. That's not at all what I'm trying to say although it's coming out that way The fact is there's a lot of things we don't understand. I'm critical of the video. That was released. Yes because it doesn't tell us the whole story but they're trying to tell us it does and then people take the video that was released and see things in it. That's not there. That's the only thing I that stuff. The only thing I'm calling out that's all you know is getting the the other parts of the two. We had the reader operator Inherent Account Patrick and Richard Damon. Richardson and Richard. He's great and his account is the fact that he documented it a long time ago. You know this happened years ago. Yeah and he documented and at the time in order down really a strong. Yeah so that to me supports that as well so I like to see. Other things supporting. Yeah I agree with him. Solid stuff you know and and I I know a good guy good friend and I know Patrick the other guy the these folks are all just solid solid people that just you know were well at the right place at the right time guests right at the time. It might have been the right place at the wrong time because they couldn't talk about it for a long time and then the are allowed to. He felt so dave felt. So just this relief when it came out because he came off yes he could ever talk about this because he wasn't allowed and then once they put it on TV. He could go here. Look I wrote this. Yeah when it happened. Good for him. Know I agree with that. I agree that a hundred percent. Yeah Yeah and you know those guys you know they have my My respect for coming out and saying things And I know the some of them did it. With trepidation very tentative. Because they were afraid for what might happen later In so I understand. I understand that they're good guys. You Know Man. Thanks for for giving us a real look at the stuff instead of just jumping to conclusions and telling us how it really works really good to hear. Jump to conclusions with this but we want we want. I mean we're looking and I'm glad you're out there hunting. Ufo's as you say and We all appreciate it Four Tony. Sweet. I'm captain around a truth. Be told we are at the two thousand twenty. Ufo Mega Conference in Laughlin Nevada. And we'll see later..

Listener Mail: An Appreciation for of Cultural Perspectives
"Well maybe we should I take a look at this e mail we got from Ming Now This was in response to our episode. M I B or in IB. I think this was to be feature this from the vault recently. I think we did. I believe we dared. Yeah Yeah So. This episode Concerned similarities underlying traditional paranormal experiences that people attribute to supernatural forces like the Devil. And then you know mid to late twentieth century experiences of the so-called men in black. Or what could be the you know what could be the common underlying psychology and stuff like that With those two types of experiences so essentially we're talking about the ways that ufo beliefs might spring from the same wells is more traditional religious or supernatural beliefs and toward the end of the episode. I think I wondered out loud if there is any modern folklore in Chinese culture similar to the alien abduction in men in black complex in in American culture. I couldn't find any evidence of that but I asked a listeners if they knew of anything like that and so in response. We got this great message from Ming. Ming says hi again Robert Joe. Hope you're both doing well and staying safe inside during this crazy time. Your playlists have been powering me. Through my work. From home days here in Toronto I wanted to write in after listening to the MIT or in IB EPISODE. Again as your conversation about aliens. Mib and what it'd be like In other cultures reminded me of Fu- fun thoughts. I'm not an ancient alien person but I do like to speculate in the name of science fiction and lower Growing up Chinese. I've also fed off of legends and myths of Asia. There's an idiom in Chinese that literally translates to heavenly clothes have no seams but figuratively describes things that are perfect. Flawless and seamless the story behind the idiom was written during the five dynasties and relates that a poet napping outside one night so heavenly figure descending from the skies. She was beautiful in her clothes were glowing. She introduced herself as the Weaver Girl. From the myth of the cowherd in the weaver girl and he noticed that her clothes had no seems when he asked about it. She simply answered. That clothes in heaven are made perfectly do not require stitching and therefore have no seems going off the aliens idea. It's fun to imagine if she had been alien and was wearing some kind of seamless body. Suit that aliens are often Kitted out with in movies to further link it to aliens in space. The weaver girl is the Chinese name. For the star Vega. The cowherd is in alter Which makes me wonder if she'd meant She was from Vega instead of actually being Vega or the weaver girl. Oh like she was from Vega which is great because Vega is where the alien radio signal comes from in. Carl Sagan's contact oh but Back to Ming's message There's also another piece of lore about Chinese legends that loosely relates to the theory of relativity a day in the heavens a year on earth protagonists of stories who were mortal or earthly to start with often. Find out too late that once they ascend to the heavens a single day up in the sky means a year has passed down on earth so the mortal family they once had were all gone by the time they've managed to finish the task. They needed to do up in the heavens. I've read some discussion in Chinese about this. Some people think that the concept came about because ancient people understood that time passes differently depending on perception but a great many who were into fi or the ancient alien troopers. Believe this is possible. Proof that an ancient people understood the theory of relativity because someone somewhere had experience with space travel. Anyway these stories have some very loose ties to things you spoke about in the episode beings descended from the heavens or space ancient alien sleep related phenomena. So thank you both for reminding me of these interesting if stray thoughts. Thank you also for pulling in threads from other cultures while discussing many of your topics it may seem a small act for you but it really enriches the podcast experience for people of other cultures. Keep doing what you do and much love from Toronto. Ming Awesome. Well that was a wonderful male. Obviously love to hear about a multicultural samples of some of the topics we've discussed and the other one was Was a real treat because I guess for me when I'm hearing this. It reminds me a lot of what. I'm pretty sure we discussed in that particular episode. The idea that like an incubus or sucky boatswain in various European traditions would have like a telltale flaw like goat feed or duck feet or something like that They would allow an individual to realize they were dealing with something that is not quite human and in a way this is a version of that right instead of a fly to perfection and like too much. Perfection is kind of a flaw in any sort of design that is allowing inhuman entity passes human. Yeah and I also really like this idea of ancient approximations of relativity now. Obviously I don't think it's very likely that that ancient Chinese people had experience with aliens or space travel. But I do think that relativity is one of those interesting things where you can intuit kind of General version of the theory just from experience of subjective experience of life right like you don't actually know that you know that the That mass or velocity alters space time you know or makes a you know extends or contracts space time you do at least know that time doesn't always feel like it flows at the same rate. Yeah you would. You would have some idea that that toiling in the soil Seems to take all day whereas just you know a an hour of pleasure seems to pass by in a moment so it seems reasonable that there would be the base acumen experience of of relativity. They'd be able to draw on and then working to some sort of You know a mythological structure but I do also like at this idea how there are myths of people going up into the heavens and then experiencing this time dilation It reminds me of like the scene in In interstellar where they have to go down to the planet that's very close to the black hole in the you know for them. They're down there for like twenty minutes or whatever but they come back to their Their their friend and colleague up in the space station. That's been orbiting it in for him. It's been twenty years.
"Welcome to kiss myths and mystery. Signed your host kid chrome today. I'm continuing my investigation. Into the question are flying saucers man-made or other worldly in this investigation I come again and again up to the front door area fifty one. I use a lot of the freedom of Information. Act For some of my research as well as a few contacts have and freedom of Information Act has gotten me nothing on area fifty one. I will share an excellent resource with you at the end of this podcast but right now. I'm working with the idea that has been out for decades. So where are all these flying saucers? Where are all these aliens looking at area fifty one or many suspect at UF Os and even aliens our house? It's important to keep in mind but the various so-called areas that would be eleven fourteen and twenty five and fifty one to mention just a few of the secured areas of the base arose during the Cold War. This was a time when we were flying spy planes over Russia and China and they were spying on us in the way of ufo and aliens are at area fifty one we may never know for sure but from the nineteen sixty six school yard sighting of a Ufo and Australia witness by hundreds of school children. Three hundred actually and their teachers. There is a lot of evidence. Flying Saucers really exist. And as I mentioned some of the science based answers to our they're flying saucers are there are really silly. Also might research. I determined that a cover up of certain knowledge by the government or scientific community or science based industry is expressed as a denial factor the best way to illustrate this is simply to observe politicians. If a political body or individual denies that long enough the public will eventually believe that it never happened kind of Gullible. American public there. There are few true attempted cover-ups you could look at the flying saucer crash in Roswell as one and the Kennedy assassination as number another. Unfortunately most of these cover-ups are successful and I can't pin them down as cover-ups so we had the denial factor regarding all things alien fly saucer when a flying saucer alien is encountered by handful of individuals. Say Five to ten people. The is dismissed as a sign of a weather balloon and more recently as a test aircraft. That same explanation is twisted a bit but when used with strange lights the night but it's the same excuse in the event of twenty or thirty or in one case Australia. Hundreds of witnesses seen the same exact thing. Then the science says oh it's mass hysteria. Individual sightings are too numerous to explain but a brief lock mass hysteria over the centuries is another matter in sociology and psychology. Mass hysteria is a phenomenon. That transmits collective allusions of threats whether real true Population Society back in Sixteen Ninety two. We have the most famous the Salem witch trials which were the result of fear community hostility imagination and religion all resulting in mass hysteria. I personally interviewed a navigator of a Flying Fortress Play Chicken with follow by FOO fighters during World War. Two when they were flying over the Pacific. This was actually one thousand nine hundred forty four. When it occurred entire crew witnessed all the events fatigue mass hysteria I S. He didn't think so. Finally we have the conundrum of thinking if the existence of something be disproved. Does that mean it exists or put another way? Should we believe everything we think? On Monday I will be looking inside area. Fifty one with every resource I have given you an idea of its structure of tunnels that do exist and I promised to share a resource with you is called Area Fifty One. This is a book. An uncensored history of America's top secret military base is by investigative reporter Anne Jacobson and she talked to over twenty five individuals who are retired ranging from age five to ninety four that had worked within by area fifty one in the book. There are incredible photographs at a never before published. She was granted a lot of information a lot of access. But keep in mind that whatever. She was granted well that was meant to be seen. It was okay. They wouldn't be showing her anything. That was super top secret.
Pentagon confirms 3 videos showing "unidentified aerial phenomena"
"Earlier this week the Pentagon officially declassified three separate videos that show unidentified aerial phenomenon otherwise known as UFOs yeah or in this case you A. peas yes thank you so is not stand for unidentified aerial phenomena got to change it I don't know what I know right everything that we've ever known in our whole lives is now I gotta say different A. P. I don't wanna say you A. P. yeah I don't I don't do that either now the videos were leaked to media outlets back in two thousand seven and again in twenty seventeen are in black and white the real grainy so it's you know it's hard to see but the Pentagon has for some reason felt compelled to substantiate the authenticity of them since they were already out there yeah to the media we know what it is we know so and by the way these are like it according to The New York Times was a clip from two thousand four that was filmed by two navy fighter pilots and it shows this round objects are hovering above the water hundred miles out into the Pacific and and then two other videos from the twenty fifteen show these objects moving through the air and one of on the pilot you can hear the pilots saying look at that thing dude it's rotating my god can you imagine the stuff they have seen I can imagine their conversation at the dinner table that night just like you guys yeah and then he continued because my gosh they're all going against the wind the winds a hundred twenty knots out of the west hi can you even it's crazy I mean you have photos man UFOs happening yeah so one of the pilots who witnessed the two thousand and four incident spoke to the media in twenty seventeen about what he saw and he said and I quote as I got close to it it rapidly accelerated to the south and disappeared in less than two seconds while our this was extremely abrupt like a ping pong ball bouncing off the wall it would hit and go the other way and the Pentagon isn't saying if there's more to come right now but I mean the fact that they have actually come out and said yeah this is legit these are legitimately unidentified aerial phenomena
Is Real Reality Hidden
"I'm your host Alex Karras and today we welcome Anthony Peak back to skeptical to talk about his new and quite amazing book the Hidden Universe in investigation into non human intelligences a book. That is very much about these extended consciousness realms that we talk so much about on this show Anthony as many of you know is not just a very accomplished author and speaker but as someone who truly in every way that I can tell seems to be a researcher. Seeker that is someone who you get the feeling that is really trying to get somewhere with this stuff. And isn't just writing books which are very entertaining and bring us all along on his journey but that this is really a path of discovery for. Anthony and I really appreciate that his latest. The Hidden Universe is no exception. It's packed not just with amazing accounts and stories that you're going to be quite surprised that you've never heard about before but it's also packed with a lot of cutting edge science. That Anthony believes backs up his theories. Now one of the thing I should mention and that is that Tony peak is not someone who's afraid to stick his neck out there regarding his theories and I kinda liked that really because if you really listen to what he's saying I think what he's saying is not that he has all the answers but more that it must somebody sticks a stake into the ground and says hey it's not just about stories. Here's what I think this stuff leads to unless somebody does that. We can't really pull it apart so we all realize that we're probably wrong about all this stuff that the greatest minds of thought about since as long as there's been a human being on this planet but I do appreciate that. He's willing to stick his neck out there and say. Hey here's how I think it all fits together so anthony. It's great to have you back. Thanks so much for joining me. Great to be chatting Te- again Alex. I've been looking forward to this. Pretty good. And thanks for a wonderful introduction. The that's a really hard act to follow. I have to say that. Thank you for it but you totally deserve it. I mean so I tell you what. Let's dive into the book. I love this quote that really Kinda resonates with something. We all know to be true but we can forget until a book like this comes along and reminds us and that is throughout recorded history the belief that humanity shares this planet with a variety of other sentient beings has been persistent. I mean if you want to start from there if you want to start anywhere you like tell us about the book the Hidden Universe. Yeah no that that is. That's quite correct. And that's being my my overall reasons writing this book. Book I think has been inside me since the mid nineteen sixties. It's it's the book I've probably always wanted to write. Because in mid nineteen sixty S I came down with a double pneumonia during that period. I had a series of very profound to loose nations going through the crisis. Pneumonia and at that time even my twelve year old mind. I was fascinated by the nature of the hallucinations received. That were these things. nations internal generated or whether mixture. Both and it's very much as being something. That is intrigued me all through my Brighton career. Because time and time again I come across people who encounter ends in differing circumstances in OB estate in Dreaming States people who encounter entities during closing campuses of the third kind ending. Play developing close encounters of the Moments I the seems to be an awful lot of information out there but what? Nobody's I think is trying to do. Well it's not true. I mean I'm not originally Jackley trying to do it. Many years ago and various other writers over the years tried struggling through history as to what events debate on. This is what I try to do now. I very much. I mean you Coul- my ideas a theory also or high policies. I'd probably sites educated speculation because these things we can never actually know and we can never really asked them working with people trying to test these things but the basic base to the book is just if people have extraordinary experiences encounter entities that seemed to having been existing so then can we build up a neurological model. Can WE BUILD UP A PSYCHOLOGICAL MOBILE? And can we build knowledge comodal to actually explain things all? And that's what I intend to do in the book. Tell us more though. Because that's that's a good starting point but the book really jumps in with both feet about the entirety of this extended realm. That does seem to crop up all over the place. So whether it's magic and spirits and Shamans like you said or whether it's after after life experiences in near death experiences or whether it's the experiences I mean you do kind of take us through this history in order to get us to the point of some of the breakthrough science that you think is influencing you the most right now. So where do you WanNa start with that? I I think the magic and spirits and Shamans thing is something that's really interesting because it grabs a lot of people's attention right now. There's a lot of people really interested in magic right now. A lot of people. Really Interested in the occult right now and I gotta say. I think that we haven't quite thought that through all the way particularly if we mashed into simulation theory and afterlife near death stuff. I mean there's just so many things to pull apart here. Tony hardly know where to begin. So I'm kind of looking. I'm happy to do that. The the first thing I'd like to make a point is the kind of the starting point. The starting price of the book involves inexperienced. Mother had when she was starting to develop out signs and one day. She phones me can. She said she experienced a very strange incident on her way. Onto the local village that we used to live in name livable and she said that she walking with my aunt. My aunt sold tie shoelace. When my aunt Stein tying issue my mother looked up and said what she described to saying a smoke ring. Hong Hovering over local local factory. She then said the smoke ring salty to revolve then shut off towards North Wales unjustly. Won't she scene and I said well you know I don't really know him you know she's not into. Ufo should never have these not the kind of thing she's ever been interested in James Lady and then unless we'll worry about it and she didn't have two or three days in the morning feed as she phones. We opening statements of absolute terror. Now she's woken up in the middle died This you know she. She said she couldn't. She moved properly but she was looking towards the door of bedroom. Now she lives alone. She's away now. What is important here? The important caveat is that she'd lost heroin with malignant melanoma many is before and Harare. She was developing various problems so she was partially science which is important. As as I'm involved with this. She said she looked towards the bedroom. Two bedroom door was an end she. She's fingers around the edge of the veteran Dole and this creature pods head round the door. She described it on. The description is uncanny. She said large black is like insect. She had two holes for nose and a slit from mouth and looked at her and dodge FAC. As if you know seen her she wakes up and she said Tony what did I say and I say well. It's intriguing I. I really don't know them because I didn't want to worry her clearly. In a state of hip Negi ornamental. Punks anesthetic sleep paralysis. Her Dole's perception and broken down to such an extent that she was a seeming. Something that ordinarily alternate Circumstance experienced of it and of course of the book cover of the way straight communion. Because it was it was a classic right it was an all CGI type will gray now. I started to research into this world were when I started to really quite interesting. Facts like for example in twenty seventeen in northern India Louis caved in India Tango. Being ten thousand years they call been dated various things to note. This was the case and the creatures that are depicted in this cave creature my mother. So then he'd go. On Your Graham Hancock congratulating books events natural and then they see describes his own experiences in the shelter in the Here again. We have very similar creatures. That are actually drooled on the cave wall now. What intrigues me? Here is that there's an elderly lady in in the UK. There are people in India under people in Southern Africa. And then again Graham. Hancock says itself. You know you look at a last caves and you look at Pash Mel everywhere else. These these entities seems to be everywhere of the counterargument today sees a well. You know they. They were more expensive than we were these people. They didn't know how to drool pro bowl. They would doing idealization xlt now. The argument doesn't stand up for me because these these ancest- these ancestors of the brain's rejected the same sizes. Clearly that you had to be Faisal and and other animals soclean whatever they were doing. It was not just an abstract. It was something more.

Cults Daily: The Seekers Dr. Charles Laughead
"Today we're discussing the apocalyptic prophecies of Dr Charles Law head and his followers. They call themselves the seekers and believe that aliens would destroy Earth around Christmas. Nineteen fifty four. The cult's prophecy inspired new psychological investigations into the phenomenon of cognitive dissonance and had lasting ramifications on cult studies in the twentieth century. Charles Law head was the organizer and leader of the seekers but the original prophecies came from a woman named Dorothy Martin. Dorothy was an early believer in the dianetics movement which became the Church of Scientology but back in nineteen fifty four. Dorothy believed that she could commune with extraterrestrials through writing. She believed her. Hand was a vessel for messages from another world. The only person who seemed to take her seriously was her friend. Dr Charles Law had the doctor and his wife had been searching for spiritual enlightenment by exploring ufo sightings and possible extraterrestrial contact law had firmly believed in the existence of aliens and that these distant beings were very concerned with the future of Planet. Earth when his friend? Dorothy told him in August. Nineteen fifty four that she had a premonition. He believed her in fact. Law Head publicized. Dorothy prophecy she told him that. A great cataclysm would strike on December twenty first nineteen fifty four and the doctor wrote this into a brief newspaper article in his writing. He predicted the specifics of this cataclysm law head foretold of a great volcano that would stretch from Canada's Hudson Bay all the way to the Gulf of Mexico. This volcano would cause a huge tidal wave. That would wash over. North America the charismatic law head Rally Dorothy and other U. F. O. Believers to form a nondenominational church devoted to preparations for the apocalypse several of these believers experienced frenzied premonitions themselves feeding into law heads prophecy but one of the members of this church was another doctor named. Leon festinger of psychologist. He read the newspaper article and while he didn't believe law heads predictions. Leon saw perfect opportunity to study the phenomenon known as cognitive dissonance this seekers gathered on the night of December twenty first ready for the end of the world but it never came the clock struck midnight and nothing happened by four. Am It was obvious that nothing was going to happen? Leeann was there that night and saw the rampant disappointment on the seekers faces as law heads. Prediction never occurred. He said there was little to see in the reactions of the people in that room. There was no talking no sound. People sat stocks still their faces seemingly frozen and expressionless. Didn't know how to react to the failed prophecy. Many wandered out of the house shaken. The followers soon parted ways rejoining their lives. Dorothy continued to believe in the extraterrestrials preaching their existence for another four decades until her death in one thousand nine hundred eighty two. Leon went on to develop a theory of cognitive dissonance which describes a mental phenomenon where a person holds two or more contradictory beliefs or ideas as true even when presented with new information proving otherwise the seekers had believed in law head wholeheartedly. Even when evidence countered his predictions law head and his wife returned home and found their neighbors had become hostile. His own sister tried to have him committed to a mental institution and his children taken into protective custody. Eventually law head and his family fled to California but the failed prophecy had a lasting effect liens theory of cognitive dissonance as seen in the seekers ardent believes that divide reason and evidence became a cornerstone theory in behavioral science and continues to be studied today.

"ufo" Discussed on Stuff They Don't Want You To Know Audio
"If I just haven't seen that kind of technology at play yet. It could be something like that that I just don't have the reference point for. Totally? Yeah, I mean I can completely understand that. We also have We have a couple of different experts who weighed in both in the Montreal area, and then just people, study, astronomy or you have. To so on. One I'd like to bring your attention as Dr Robert La Fontaine. WHO's a professor of astronomy at the University of Montreal? And he had I think he had the most even-handed initial response because again. We have to remember like November seventh eighth through the ninth. People are saying all kinds of just wild out-of-pocket pocket stuff about this. So here's what here's what the astronomy professor says. People saw something they saw ufo now the word ufo is identified flying object, so they saw something in the sky. They couldn't identify they saw. Phenomenon now remains to find an explanation. We haven't had time to find one yet. It takes a while. We need to have observations. We need to collect a whole series of information together so far most of the investigations that are looking at the ufo phenomenon often take several days to find an explanation. For decades that we have been dealing with UFO phenomena, not only in Quebec, but almost everywhere in the world, until now none of these ufo phenomena has found its source in the presence of vessels from other planets all ufo phenomena have their explanation in natural phenomenon of meteorological origin, or Aurora Borealis, type or artificial phenomenon. Sex out very dry way he saying I'm not saying he can't be aliens, but would be the first frigging time ever. Let's also just the term. UFO is so loaded. People have so many associations with it from pop, culture and sci fi and everything, but what it really just means is a lack of an explanation, and just because we're seeing something that doesn't have an explanation doesn't mean you can make the leap to it. As this origins being somewhere, you know of the known universe right? Yeah! I got to see some really weird on personal level. Of. Several days. Maybe it was last week on. It I was digging into something and. Someone quoted me saying that on on read it and who is like the most? I think it was the coolest thing to happen to me that month. well this month. There's a new month never a switched over bent, but yeah, we have to say that right every every time we deal with UFO's we do have to. We do have to emphasize that because you're right. It has a has become a loaded term ever since the nineteen what? Late forties maybe. Yeah that'll roswell well. Hey, let's I. can we go to the next? person that stepped in because this person. Just is so skeptical of anything else like we're. That was maybe even handed that we just heard from sure from the the professor there a mark has next to grind Oh man, mark What is it Gelinas? He's a meteorologist with environment. Canada that's an organization and Secretary of the Montreal Astronomical Society. This dude was not having any of this. No, yeah, you could just hear the. Scoff. Yeah what did he say he said? He looked at the photographs I. And he said. It looks like a phenomenon observed on many occasions especially when we work with projectors sometimes used in meteorology. Okay okay. Projectors used with meteorology I see the case built. Okay, all right, keep going okay. I'm picking up in down I'm on board and so he goes. Light is reflected by ICE, crystals or water droplets in the cloud. So depending on the density of that cloud if you like, we just talked about. The beam might be several hundred meters, thick and visible from a great distance. He further conjectured. Stuff like the race might come from an automobile because they have headlights. Headlights my point at the sky or they might reflect towards the sky, because buildings have windows and windows are reflected like he's very much over this mark. You're saying okay. I'm first of all. He seen everything, but on condescending, which means I talked down to people. I, I'm just trying to imagine a car that is somehow positioned with its headlights for three dollars goal on a giant hill somewhere just kind of sitting there shooting up because the thing, the problem with the headlight argument is that these headlights were not be static. Right so will they be moving, but also. There are no laser headlights. They could shoot all the way up into their, and then reflects down in those raise that we're observing. Maybe, I'm wrong mark. Maybe maybe you're right I just I. Don't see that, but okay Lo. Aim To you, Ben. But it's true and then. And then he points out the spotlight stuff and he points out that light beams come from shopping centers. He's basically the whole time is going you guys. Lights, you have lights. They're everywhere everywhere, Montreal we're almost in the twenty first century. The reflective surfaces everywhere the clouds in the ice crystals come on man, and it's interesting because you see other astronomy societies of the time There was one quote ailment. Dig through dig through notes, but there's there's one quote from. Someone. Who seems a little bit offended by this This claim that's. That's an alien rex terrestrial ufo. And then says. Oh, it's a dominic larose. Dominic! Larose I believe is the man who said you know. What in my organization? A lot of us came to it because we realized that quote Unquote Alien ufo's don't exist so. It's weird when you get into. This kind of debate because. Science Has the the lion's share of attention in these concept, or said in these conversations, and it should, but there's also some psychology in. They're involved in there. There's some grudges being held like when we learned some of the weird behind the behind the curtain business, going on with Mathon, which was frankly surprised, and you had nothing to do with aliens Maybe that's a conspiracy for another day, but. But. Let's look at the other reports, so let's take psychology far out of it as we can we know that. Like any other large.

"To every episode, but hope you're particularly tuned into this one. Here's what you said. Brian said Hey guys I've been binging. binging on the show all summer, and after listening to the candidates Roswell episode I remember that my dad told me about a very famous incident here in Montreal back in nineteen ninety that he remembered seeing on the local news so far I have not heard any of your episodes mentioned it and Brian. You are correct by friends, fellow conspiracy realists, but is something we are going to correct for ourselves today in this episode Montreal Nineteen Ninety. There was something weird in the sky. It's true. And we'll. We'll get to the crazy parts of this, but but first let's let's start with the facts, Montreal. What is you know it's in Canada right, but what else? It's a band I like that's of module. That's right. That's right there actually on tour right now. Our mutual friend and my roommate an lifelong pal frank Recently went to Montreal and said it was a delightful Cornucopia of delicious foods and arts and very clean, and the the metro system was very clean, and he had a wonderful time. He said it is the second largest city right in Canada. At least when you're talking about population, which is Kinda. Cool, right? It takes up about three fourths of Montreal. It's an it's an older city at least as far as this continent goes. Colonial history dates back into the sixteenth century, it started as a missionary settlement of course like every other European based American city. There were plenty of people living there beforehand, but anyway Europeans come it becomes a missionary settlement, and there was plenty of money to be made in religion, but they also realize they could make a another ton of money. If they got into the for trait, so Montreal became a hub of the for trappers would traveled to from acquiring pelts, and then they will return there to sell and ship them. As for the character of Montreal, as in in days of your, and in the Modern Day, the best way to say it is that if you traveling to Montreal. Or Quebec in general from the US, the first thing you'll notice is that it is very very. Very, French, yes, and again goes back to its history, but also right now we're talking about twenty twenty, the majority of Montreal's population French Canadian. They would identifies french-canadian, and while you hear, some people in Montreal is the second largest French speaking city in the world, and of course after Paris, in France That's a bit of a dodgy statement, right? There's other places that might actually meet that young can CHASA AL jeers they're both populous in their own right and They're also probably growing more quickly in terms of birth rate, and maybe well once Montreal was known for exporting fine pelts and furs in the late nineties. Kinda got reputation for exporting some fine musical bands such as the UNICORNS. The Arcade Fire Wolf Parade. Leonard Cohen is from Montreal. A lot of great bands Tim Hecker more drone kind of thing. The best nerd lakes the dears. I was huge in the Montreal music scene back in the late nineties and still am today. I'm very much. But all in all Montreal is a is a beautiful place. It's full of history. It's full of culture. It's considered one of the most cosmopolitan hey, a European cities on the entirety of the North American continent. However, it's also known for something else Oh. Yes, been like a lot of large metropolitan cities, there are strange lights in the sky above Montreal strange lights that. May Not come from any human origin. Or, maybe some kind of secret government experience, but in the end they're unidentified. They're flying and their objects and that makes them. UFO's. Objectively speaking! What are we talking about will tell you afterward from our sponsor. Is. This episode of stuff they don't want you to know is brought to you by Roman. Talking about erectile dysfunction isn't easy. Usually people just brush it off or blame themselves. Saying things like I lost my Mojo yeah I just wasn't feeling it tonight. Honey or you know.

Author Michael Murphy on 'Golf in the Kingdom'
"This is Alan ship. I am delighted to be joined by Michael Murphy author of Golf in the Kingdom still going strong eighty nine Michael. Thank you for doing this well. It's a pleasure. You have such a unique place in the game Euro Golfing Kindo as in your early forties. I'M NOT GONNA say it was a Lark but it was a you're not you're not a Gulf writer. You're not a novelist it just emerged from you in ever. Since you've been this Oracle you've been this grand old man of letters in the game you you tell shape how think about it. So are you still tickled that all these years later people are still finding this novel enjoying it? Well I I love it. I could say channel that because it was not only the first book I wrote the First Book I never tried to ride and I started it as I was turning forty and it was published in one thousand nine hundred ninety two forty seven years ago so when I was forty one so here we are now forty eight years later and it has. His Life Taught Me. I could ride so that in itself was an enormous pleasure and a big force to shape by subsequent life. I never thought of myself as a writer. My brother Was the designated writer in our family might and he had been a successful novelist and my grandfather had delivered John. Steinbeck and Salinas or you and I were both born and You know rules can get us. Signed the kids growing up and I was supposed to be a doctor and Than the more for me Thought I'd be a psychiatrist. And then got to Stanford and found myself in class on comparative religions of that led me to the philosophy and the way of life that shaped me ever since when I was nineteen and twenty but never along the way there was thought. Start writing books so anyway. When I sat down to write this book really did come in a flood. And it's Been living in me ever since I've written eight books now but that one If it were to be one of my children Children it would be among my books. It was my first child by far the most successful and I would say influential. Books are mysterious things. I like to say sometimes. Ufo's identified writing objects you W os or you are os. Son identified reading objects that can open worlds to people. And that's what's actually happened with this book with golf in the Kingdom one of the things about our shared hometown of Salinas which is just a dusty little farming community in the Central Valley known to John. Steinbeck doesn't have that much else to recommend it. It's not that far from pebble. Beach Golf links which figures prominently in my life story and and was important part of Gulf education. So tell us about your early days of playing pebble with with your brother and of course guys would haunt the Cosby Klanbake back. When he was really a big deal with Hogan snead Nelson and Bing crosby's the star in the world so is important from Stamford but it starts with your golf education before that while. That's right I mean we've had very fortunate childhoods you and I and my brother and Yes we would there be there at the crosby so I get to follow Ben Hogan around and watched him up close and personal before and after his accident. Which was in I guess January of Nineteen forty-nine so he missed that whole year in the hospital but he used to partner with Bing crosby and that was fun and Johnny Weissmuller who was the Great Olympic champion of became Tarzan. And the movies anyway. It was those great events and of course plane pebble which to this day remains by far my favorite course and it has to be. I mean there's of course in the world I think more beautiful than pebble. There are others that when you look at them would be beautiful. But to match the incredible range of moods it gets into with the shifting light the shifting fog the filaments of fog that cut across the fairways and all but anyway quyen pebble seen Some of the players in particular Hogan up close definitely was an influence on on golfing. The King wrote about it will hoge himself makes a handful of cameos in the text. Including what was it? The moved you so much about him well his magnetism on the course then he won eight out of eleven majors. He played over that period from forty eight to fifty through fifty three and he After the accident he paid just eighteen tournaments through fifty-three thickening one ten of them. He won virtually every major so he was the top of the game. He was to golf then way. Tiger Woods has been also the quality of his presence and when he would crack this out Just by the second hole at pebble for those who have been developed. Now it's then built up but there was a big field of practice in the pros as well as the onlookers. Got To sit down and watch him. Maybe there'd be hundred. Fifty people big big arena there watching him practice and it was a sight to behold because he had an immense repertoire of shots to fade to draw low high and the silence and that meant a huge impression on me and. I'm sure that as I sat down to write though I didn't plot the book or shape the book deliberately around him that influence. I'm sure was like an acorn growing into this conscious. Us of what the game could be as a kind of If you WANNA call it Yogi you can call it contemporary. You can call Chamonix even exercise golf itself is what in the eastern martial arts. Would you could call a Kata which is a series of movements. That trigger it is said are esoteric anatomy that is the complete person we are both in the flesh and in our soul are in the consciousness itself and golf swing. You could argue is an unnatural. Act It's not like running or throwing which are species learn to do and could do To survive. But you don't take a tee up a ball and hit it at the on charging tiger you know as a member of the tribe so it's an acquired skill that requires the most gypsum concentration and commitment to play it. Well and for this reason he and other reasons it evokes corresponding states of mind which can be interfered with with strong emotions whether rage or grief or sorrow which can produce by this fiendish challenge to get this small ball into this tiny hole and to go after four five hours over the course of four miles. You know. It's on the face of an absurdity. A why are we doing this? And that can occur to while playing. Why am I doing this but you do it? And you have these incredible pleasures and experiences and then as I've discovered through Responding to the book experience you have to call super-normal Mr Cool or cold. In other words the game can do that and It helps to be in a beautiful place like Pebble Beach. The you bring to this conversation. Just leaps off the page. I mean that's I think why the book is in bird because as you say it's this pursuit of ours is is maddening. It makes no sense but we do it anyway. And we were able to put a voice to having a correspondent. Brad faxon about the book and he said what I love about it is it made it okay to to speak of these things and you gave us in vocabulary to this experience at the golfers of had. But I you can get those tools so you matriculate to Stanford and as a fellow Salinas Person. I know it's not the most open minded place to Nag towns little conservative. But you have sort of a life altering experience stafford and what exactly happened well. I was so inspired by this professor. Frederic Spiegelberg he them a born and raised in Germany and Taught was teaching Stanford Comparative Religions so I got exposed to eastern philosophy and meditation contemplation than and particularly the world view of Indian philosopher. A named Sheera window who had been educated in England very elite education. His family had instructed his patrons in England never to let him speak any Indian language so he wanted to English but he was a philosopher and writer kind of a renaissance figure and developed a worldview. That's been the most basic influence on me. There are many influences of prompted me to do what I've done and of course the mystery is. Why chose this story? I could have gotten so many other directions but I consider myself very lucky. A Norman Mailer. The writer argued that every aspiring writer is given one free one by God and that was my free one and it was the first one and it in turn golf in the kingdom has shown me that this birth of new capacities is much more common than most people realize because immediately upon publication people started letting me know about their mystical experiences called experiences on golf courses. I wrote the book on some inspiration but I if you had asked me then that people would be having experiences you know immediately lawyer. New York wrote to me and was just couldn't get over this book. It helped him understand that. How on this particular occasion he'd been standing on the T. of four hundred yard and there were no players between him and his forces have been the green said he could see clear. A ball marker the size of a dime on this whole quarter of a mile away. Two of his playing partner couldn't even see the green. I got it was there. So he wondered. Is this the sort of thing you're talking about or a woman rights to me right away and says the yearbook helped me in? Because not long ago I was playing the eighteenth hole of at my Country Club as the sun was setting and when we got to the green the sun had set but it was still shining through the green and I felt that maybe this was some after glow on my is some retinal shock or something but when they went into the clubhouse who shining through the walls and it shown like that for three days and I was in an exaltation and thank you for writing the book because I found author who bite understand this experience so when you then I started getting these things. It pushed me in the direction of seeing the genius of sport to elicit this experience but not reported by sportswriters very often. You know there've been a few writers who have glimpsed this John Updike. He recognized this and Bernard Darwin. You know the great writer grandson. Charles Darwin he read the links of either down one of his short stories. I mean he certainly could see it. The mystery of golf by Arnold Hall Taint. So there's been a vein of golf writing that shows this power of the game not only to enchant but to reveal these capacities so that in turn has led me into other sports. And so I've been out to meet with coaches and players of ever since about what you would call the inner game of Sport and that Inter has led me to appreciate how prevalent it is in everyday life but not commonly discussed and recognized until recently. Thank you God for giving me go for the Kingdom as my first book.

Are We pick a topic already? And we're GONNA share some really fun history and information in stories and then I talk about why people don't believe or ID bunket and he talks about why people do and this topic is going to be kind of all over the place. Yeah well it's while actually. This is being recorded before Valentine's Day but it will come out after all times day but just soon after. I like the Monday after. Yeah so that'll be fine so first year. We did a valid special APHRODISIACS than last year. We did it crimes of the heart of the heart and I totally forgot about that and they still hate Valentine's because guess who's alone again this year. Some you know what I mean I. I'll see your cat would totally does it. He so loving. He can't give me a the had taken me on a day. You don't know anyways. We decided on an episode about go for it. Because you don't know how I don't I don't because to me. It's really close to aphrodisiacs. Not really because I'm talking about different things because me too. I mean it's dedicated to love about fertility and different aspects and it was kind of like love objects like a pair of marrying object started altered the yeah but we both kind of diverged bid and mine is technically true. It's a paranormal love object. You'll see I know. They're not paranormal. But they're both true are they okay. Mine is definitely definitely. Parents factual okay. That'll be a good a good like mix then fake minor. Fake just like my breasts. I want to do a whole episode though. On how? And then I'll debunk them. You don't lead them people. You're beautiful just the way you are anyways so so that I don't know what you have to do drinks history you already. What are you categorize this topic? What are you calling it does love? I guess so because love adjacent I can say what my half is. I'm actually talking all about SPEKTR affiliate. Which is people who fall in. Love and have sex with ghosts. I WanNa do a whole topic on this because as I was looking into it. It is wild and my stories. I don't present a lot of information. Actually none in the stories are really just kind of sex and so I think we could still do an exploration of the topic in the future. An I whole heartedly encourage it because yes and mine are ones are more related to fertility. GonNa save more advocates. His biological clock is ticking. So should we do drinks while he already been drinking? No I have another one. This is this is my backup drink. That tastes good. You said it tasted grows well better than the other thing I got about that. What does it okay? Well first let me get my main one so I was still and I admit when I grab this. I was still on the topic of aphrodisiacs. Because that's what we did our Minnesota on and so I found the reason I got back up because it's an gross but it is called moon juice. I've had oh and I'm like and that's to me whenever we're thinking of Wu and we learned that at the UFO con from now on. I encourage everyone else to do this. I'm calling APHRODISIACS. Move Juice because it's Wu and this is a giant forty of galactic IFA. It's going to be disgusting. Santan makes good beer. Yes it does make beer. I like their stuff as a backup because we're talking about Valentine's Day. I got a sweet strawberry so chocolate covered strawberries and it's paying so it's Valentine's I'm rationalizing shut up by his Valentine's and it's called a cupid's kiss ooh in a while it's my take on it because I couldn't find all the ingredients I wanted at the grocery store specific literally just a glass of sprite specifically orange bidders. I couldn't find anyways. That's cool so what it hasn't it is muddled raspberries and meant lime juice. Garvey and then white cambric juice and then they put some concern. Oh my God. I have to try this. That sounds so amazing. If anyone likes really happy as I think you're really like this. It's vile open with him. It's disgusting because dump it out for fun. Okay let's get back on track history history since we're talking about well since I'm talking about fertility and love and all that other bullshit I thought I'd talk about these are actually. He's telling personal true story. Talk about something sort of related different. Okay nothing says law like Erotica. So I'm going to give you a brief history on erotica first off the word. Erotica derives from the Greek God Eros Sherm who was God of Love Physical Desire and passion. She knew this in Roman mythology. He's known as Cupid Erotica has been around for thousands of years and is historically depicted in all cultures and some guy can really imagine like way like ancient people. Jacking up to cave drawings actually drawing the monk is it really did it. They go about that okay. Although it cannot really be said of many of the depictions that have been found. Were for pleasure for some aesthetic purpose or ritual aspect because you have to admit as Horny. Teenagers repressed reject off to some weird stuff. Maybe you okay. I checked off to some stuff like you would just see like I mean a picture in like a book. Nancy drew of Ned Nickerson playing football jack. Anyways there are cave. Paintings have been found depicting sexual acts erratic has been found in every era from Greek and Roman textbooks from the Middle Ages. The piece of Erotica found is a poem called Istanbul. Two four six one which was written on Sumerian cuneiform tablet and what year two for sixty. One I Dunno okay. It's pretty damn all. If it's on a cuneiform tablet bedded hasn't been translated. Do they know it says erotic you'd have to know is good. Even the Bible itself has a whole Chapter Song of songs at talks about sexual longing and love between a man and a woman To state the obvious Roddick wasn't always available in ancient times a little more so once the printing press was invented. That's true because you couldn't walk into the basalt tagline. Yeah this megastore by stone tablet with porn. I never that's true. Yeah so according to my research erotica really started to develop around the seventeen hundreds at the time. That novel started to become popular One of these early books came out in seventeen forty eight by John Cleland called memoirs of a woman of pleasure or more commonly known as Fannie Hill Fatty Fatty hills a widely known as one of the most prosecuted and banned books in history. Wow in the late seventeen. Hundreds of France we got books from the Marquette. Assad which exemplified sadomasochism. Obviously these books would have a huge influence on future novels with similar themes Because of the PURITANS Erotica started to become taboo and was considered unsophisticated during that era the quality of Erotica that time also obviously seem to decline although in the eighteen hundreds we did get some of the beginnings of male gay erotica the books the sins of the cities of the plane and the Tahiliani or the reverse of the medal but Erotica didn't start to again become popular until the early nineteen hundreds in the mid one thousand nine hundred erotic novels from Henry Miller Vladimir Nabokov an ice in one form of Erotica. It also became popular at this time. Was that of lesbian pulp fiction Yeah and may gay pulp. Fiction would also become a thing although not as popular as lesbian really occas. Yeah okay. Can I think statistically women read more erotic romance also into women being with each other so that true that too yeah so popular authors begin to write erotic under often underpin names such as Anne Rice? Who wrote the sleeping beauty quartet under the name? A N

Travel to the Mississippi Gulf Coast
"Let's talk about Mississippi's Gulf coast. I I like to welcome the show Charles. McColl from McCall Travel Dot Com and Charles's come to talk to us about coastal Mississippi Charles. Welcome mm to the show. Hi Chris how are you today. I'm doing well and we're talking about the state of Mississippi. What is your connection with coastal Mississippi? As a travel writer. I have visited the coastal Mississippi a few times over the past two years and after going there three or four times. I decided that I loved that area and other parts of the US Gulf coast. So much that I developed a new brand called. US Golf coast which covers everything from key. West South Padre but we are talking only about coastal Mississippi debut today so as a travel writer I covered it several times. Excellent and why should someone go to coastal Mississippi. We'll we'll talk about many things but it is is unique. The unique destination the United States. It has the longest continuous beach in the United States. Which I think a lot of people don't know I love road road trips? I travel all over the world. Love driving and there's this sense of soul fulfillment I drive on the Mississippi Gulf coast. I where it's just different than anywhere else. You can drive for an hour and not see anything except for the sand in the water is unobstructed by condos and indulge and restaurants. And what have you so this this great peace and calm and different than anywhere else. Excellent and what kind of itinerary tenorio you're going to recommend for us. It's not a singular destination. There are many communities there. So I'm GonNa recommend some things to do in each of the communities go along the coastal Mississippi. It's all still call the Mississippi Gulf coast. So I'M GONNA use both terms interchangeably. I don't want you to drive fifty miles in one day for lunch and then go drive fifty miles back so I will concentrate on the various communities and say all right first day. You're going to be here second day. You're going to be here and so on and we can do a three four five seven ten very well. Let's get into it where you're GONNA start it. Let's start in Pascagoula. So Mississippi is between Alabama and Louisiana China so coastal Mississippi represents the entire Mississippi Gulf coast so over on the east side closest Alabama Alabama. If you're driving from mobile the first thing you're gonna hit is Pascagoula. The city is probably most famous. because it's where Jimmy Buffett was born. Okay I did not I know that. Yeah so that's going to set the expectations for what the coastal Mississippi areas. All about thank Jimmy Buffett was born there so we're already at our five o'clock somewhere attitude. Pascagoula is also a navy base. So there's a lot of military and also industry the street going on there but it's it's a seafaring community. It's laid-back relative to some of the other cities. We'll talk about. Well what are we going GonNa do in Pascagoula one of the things that happened in past the goal of that as I guess lesser known as that one of the biggest UFO abduction stories in in US history happened there. So back in the seventies the couple of people claim that they were abducted by UFO. And so they were never disproven even so. That's one of the most famous things that happened in Pascagoula. Okay but other than being abducted by aliens. What am I going to do in Pascagoula for won a narrow down here to the the oldest house in Mississippi isn't Pascagoula okay? It's called the lapointe Krebs House and museum now so I went. There are a couple of months ago and I was fascinated by Howell. They showed the construction of how house was done in the bleed was the seventeen. Twenty s house was built the How they use the for the the hair from animals as insulation in the house and things like that kind of interesting Seventeen fifty seven. Is there anything specific renovated the Krebs House. We're going to go to the Krebs House. You could probably spend a couple of hours there. It's a nice waterfront setting and you can get some history of the. The natives that lived in the area and then European settlers came in and saw a whole history of Mississippi but the main point there there's to see the the house and the oldest house in the Mississippi Delta region I think between Minnesota and the Gulf of Mexico. It's the oldest house that's still in the American frontier. I'm thinking New Orleans would be older than that but I mean the city might be but I'm not sure if there's a structure that's older than point good point. The city is older but I don't know if there are any of original houses. Okay Fair enough. But another thing that I really loved in Pascagoula. The Motto Bon Center. I believe the official is the best. Gula River Audubon Bond Center captain McCoy Relation on McColl. And there's a captain McCoy and he runs nature trips out of the Pascagoula River River Audubon Center and what I loved about. It is that I learn things. Obviously like you learn on most trips but the Pascagoula River is the longest. And I'm not going to get the the terminology right. It's the longest une damned river in the continental united in a at states. Yeah so I was fascinated by that and I was like well. What about this wherever they were like now? It was dammed at some point. So the Pascagoula River I believe is four four hundred and eighty miles. That is natural the way it's always been so it hasn't been dammed. It hasn't been obstructed by any kind of construction directions so you can see wildlife and nature the way that it was several hundred years ago. Something didn't expect expect to find in coastal Mississippi or anywhere else and you say wildlife. I'm picturing talking marshes birds alligators that sort of thing. Am I in the right right ballpark. You're right and one thing that that's dominant in this area or the Mississippi sandhill cranes which are relatively large bird. I'm sure there are in other parts that states but there is a sandhill crane refuge that none in Pascagoula but on the other side so I tend cuts through through the area so from mobile bill to New Orleans. You would drive high tech Postal Mississippi. I'm talking about everything. South of I ten okay. North of town the Pascagoula River would go up there. And that's where the sandhill crane. Refuges the birds. No birds don't recognize boundaries. They fly all over the place. So you can see that. I was on the riverboat tour. Okay the AUDUBON center is like most centers they want to promote the natural wildlife and the scenery. And that's so forth and it's a really hidden gem. I think that most people don't recognize will in because it has the name Audubon on it. I'm assuming calmly talking about birdlife predominantly. So yes okay. I don't know if everybody knows. I mean Audubon as a as a charity I think is well known but Google Audubon. You'll find what is James Audubon. Is that the a original one who did all the original drawings of birds in the early. US That's really neat. Watercolors this fascinating realistic catches does right. So I mentioned captain McCoy so you could take his crews out of the audubon center also wrench around Kayak and I did did that one time and going at your own pace around the marshes fascinating at least a dozen gainers and as close they would just scatter into the water. So I love love doing that at my own pace to excellent and John James Audubon. I got it almost John James. Okay when I said early. I didn't realize how early he was. He was born in seventeen eighty five and so he was basically drawing birds up until about the Mexican American war. You're in the US. And so as the frontiers were being filled in a he was out there with his sketch pad. MOM IN ESTA goal. There's obviously the Jimmy Buffett stuff to the native son. A I think he this family left when he was three and then he grew up in mobile but he has come back and he recognizes Pascagoula his birthplace so there is a beach and a bridge and his childhood home are all named for Jimmy Buffett. The parrot heads can go and pay pilgrimage to Jimmy Buffett and go visit some of those sites and one of my favorite places the Pascagoula is called bozos grocery. It's a very old school from the nineteen fifties place where you go in you place your order and you wait inside. been there two or three times. The last time I went kayaking at the river Audubon Center. In fact I got a takeout L. Poboy from Bozo's grocery and then took it on the Kayak. But it's this old school place where you go in and you place your order and you order order off the menu. You don't make up stuff and there was some guy in front of me. That was a visitor and he wasn't a local either and so he went on these. ZAC Oh can I make this substitution. Know what's on the bed. Yeah and I was like basically your choices are you. You get what you WANNA shrimp boat boy. You want poboy poboy being sandwich. A sub someplace else or a hoagie or a hero depending on where you're from but a pavilion in this region of the world. Okay and shrimp being the best known. One that I now. They're also known for their Fried Oysters. Poboy so okay. I got a half in half half. It's amazing I had a couple dozen po boys and along the Gulf coast and I it's one of the better ones side totally recommend going to Bozo groceries to get to take out to go kayaking or he.

"Now this is something called the drake equation Good Cows GonNa talk about Ms for awhile. Yes I am really. It was developed by an astronomer cold Francis Drake. He wanted to mathematically work at. How many other intelligent lifeforms in other words aliens are out there okay? I'm listening the equation. Basically uses all the information we have about what's needed for life to exist on planet and it spits out the number of planets in our galaxy. That should have aliens living on them. That's actually a bit cool. Sorry how many alien planets are there. Well it gets pretty complicated. Because lots of people have used slightly different information nation in the equation to come up with a number but in lots of the calculations the number of alien worlds surprisingly high sometimes climbs thousands or even millions in other words the equation saying there should be plenty of aliens in our galaxy but call even even if they is alien life out there in the universe somewhere. It doesn't mean those aliens decided to pay you a visit on earth. Sorry the equation doesn't prove prove you had an alien encounter grow. It's the alien step back for me. Dude it's probably he just Matt. Go check the mets disintegrated into a pile of underwear and songbooks milk. Grow Org girl he said next. Draw Down Oh there you are thank goodness Matt thank you. I've been scratching knocking knocking on this since you were talking about whether something's more likely to be true because lots of people think it is. Oh that was ages ago. Had We not here that I have no idea because I was bashing pretty hod a really wanted to weigh in or well. Here's your chance if more people believe something it's more likely to be true right okay. It seems like if more people think something's true then we've got good reasons for believing it but really truth isn't a popularity contest. There have been times in history when most people thought the world was flat or that the sun revolved around arth or that. You could tell how smart someone is based on the shape of their skull but none of those things are true. But I've already found stacks of evidence evidence and there's even more care. Let me show you this website. I found a laptop prom. And why the case so loud allow these nine thousand nine hundred eighty seven laptops so the newest issue here at the ABC anyway governments all over the world have covered up UFO sightings. It's it's the only explanation. It's not the only explanation but it can seem that way. Some kinds of explanations are really hard to ignore nor because they what we call unfold Safai -able. That's a word that means there's no evidence that would disprove the theory and that's why we need to be critical cool thinkers into a bit of investigation before we believe everything we read investigate like detectives wait one second second. It's time for a costume change zippy. His jacket is huge but flattering never going back staring this mirror the whole time. Hand back the great fictional detective Sherlock Holmes the greatest investigator who ever lived molly homes at Your Service S. outfit Molly and actually Sherlock Holmes can give us a few good tricks sniffing at DOJ information and fake news news. I he always looks for the missing information. What's the story of being left out? Lots of dodgy websites take one tawny pace of truth and ignore all the other important parts of the story. The second thing is sherlock. Holmes doesn't want I want one story to be true more than the others. He just wants to get to the truth no matter what indeed now back into into my snug little draw closer up thank you very much matt bid if we study the evidence closely we can explain plane every detail of the case of the UFO. That wasn't it's quite elementary young. Mr Smith homes it. It appears that the following has come to pass I if we examine these social media posts from the time you saw the UFO in the area around shorten curly HQ we can see that. There was a potty held just next door these photos show the guest releasing shiny paper lanterns into the which would have looked to you like strange lights. But but what about the wishing were were were elementary. My Young Carl. I've just checked the warning signs on the box of your new telescope. Doc read this please. Caution do not swivel quickly warning alarm. We'll play. I believe you swivelled the telescope quickly trying to see the light small clearly thus triggering me alarm which sounds Li- workbook. Oh that's the same noise but what about the round shape I believe. Having seen these two unusual things happen. Your brain. Rain filled the gaps. There is a large round satellite dish on now ruth in the excitement you may have mistaken the dish or lodge complying object. The case is solved. Thanks you've kind of burst my bubble. I was really excited imagining. There was a UFO and the aliens out there. Did you have to spoil it for me. She'll look mom's Carl it's better the Illinois the truth actually I think out brains trust said something about with it matters if call believes he saw you a foul not maybe if calls just screaming out real estate there's UFO's Ron while he can. I guess I would pass to tell you that. It's probably fake automate. If he wants to believe that you go ahead belief it I guess if you had call and another guy let's just call him Zach or something. Mike and Zach set off a stand in a public place. OPOKU something and how to sign on the front that said. I don't believe that these people of a certain ethnicity origin should be allowed in our country and when they won't posse would verbally shout outlet verbal abuse it them. I think a lot more people would try and change his mind. Then call Wilkin to a park and set up something and said I believe in you I try to change my mind. And here's the shot here. I love you like I guess. It's not hurting anybody. Lack physically mentally and I think if he has the face the consequences of embarrassment won his proven wrong like they don't major consequences assist with call. You could just say I may not believe it but if someone says if you into says you're silly phillies that's ridiculous those seems. UFO'S I will be there for you and help you are still may not believe it but I will help you sir.

"Well, you know, let's go back to the the science fiction the matrix. So I don't know if you watch the the second and third movies like in that science fiction. The matrix was created by these super intelligent machines. And the first version of the matrix, they created was one that was you know, like you were saying, no famine, no war. No struggle. Everything is great, right? And they found that humans who would not accept that as reality. They would kinda wake up and realize that something's wrong. And so, you know, if if the purpose of the game is the it's kind of like when I was thinking writing class, they said, you know, I have a novel or story you have to have some conflict. Otherwise, it's not really. Story is just a vignette something in life. And so you know, it would be a boring game. If there wasn't any struggle or any challenges or any achievements. I mean, today's video games, question achievements. Are the key part? Now, if you could just do the question without having to go through learn anything about the game then that game becomes really boring. And that's that's the best answer that I have for you is that you know, we are here to learn and accomplish things which are based upon our level 'cause like a player and a video game. And so the more difficulty we have a higher level character. We must be because we're we're being given challenges, you know, that are more complicated. Does the game create UFO's and other planetary systems to well? That's an interesting one that I explore in the book as well. And you know, there's a game for example, called no man's sky. They came out a few years ago. And the interesting thing about this game was that it had eighteen Quintela planets and each one had unique. You know, flora and fauna and potentially beings. And now, of course, they couldn't the team that made that they could create a Quin killing world. So they created algorithms facto algorithms that can generate each of these worlds, do it uniquely facto our type of computer program that lets you create structures that look like they're natural. So you know, when you look at UFO's there's a lot of mysteries. And and again, I was in my conversations with with with jock. There were a couple of aspects of UFO's that were really mysterious to scientists, you know, one of which is to divide the laws of physics the second of which is they seem to just materialize from nowhere. I mean, there are lots of reports where? There was no UFO. And there is and then the third really mysterious aspect, and is that sometimes to people will see your event and one person will see it and the other person walked right into a how do you explain that, you know, materialistic worldview? Well, turns out what I bought this is it's actually all of these things are relatively easy explained because every video game one has a physics engine that has a set of rules that you have to basically comply with but the programmers can program around those rules. And so whoever has these UFO's kind of know how to do that the second is you can render at any x y coordinate anywhere in the game. And the third is you know, if you and I are playing the game and we're both saying this field. You're actually seeing it on your computer rendered, and I'm seeing it on my computer, rendered. But the information is coming from. From somewhere like a cloud server..

"But as far as NASA things some sort of guide taper of as as as a UFO UFO's using spices, some sort of taxi service between one and another, and it's just I think personally, preposterous because that would just involve Siamese, thousands of employees. And and and no one can take that many sacred like sorry. You say. Let me ask you. This would would the Austrian military basically be in lockstep with the US on something. Like this follow the lead. Well, it has previously always followed the US policy in terms of each interested in UFO's my search through the Estrella national. For strategy and government agency, you files makes three interesting reading because even as early as the nineteen seventies. We were still that's are either. As late as nineteen seventy. We were still sending off. Correspondence to to the US into the UK asking for their advice and on UFO's. So we certainly followed that way unlike other countries in South, America and Europe discontinued our official UFO investigations back in the nineteen nineties nineteen nineties the US government. Sorry, the strutting government lost twenty. His has not had an official UFO investigation agency at all..

"So Michael, it seems that every discussion about aliens and UFO's at some point always comes back to area fifty one that this place in the desert area. Fifty one is where the government has something going on they've captured in alien, and they're keeping it there. And so what is area fifty one? And why is it so tied to this discussion? It is a real facility in yet. It was a military facility. I think it still is. And it's like over the years. It was pretty much like an advanced aircraft testing facility. Eighty which would explain like all the secrecy. You know, they're they're developing military aircraft technology there, and there are signs up for people to stay out. And it was all cryptic. Nobody would talk about was happening there because they were actually developing advanced military technology there, and like when you have secrecy. That's when you can get conspiracy theories. And so that's the Colonel at the at the heart of the area. Fifty one myth. There are no alien spacecraft there. There are no alien bodies there that also speaks to to who we are as a species we like, I'm like brains light to connect dots aren't necessarily there. And of course, if the dots form of interesting picture than receive on them. It's just more fun to actually believe that. There's something crazy going on there. It just makes us happy. It makes us excited to think about and I think that's that's part of the psychology that goes into these conspiracy theories to even if there is life on other planets, aren't they so far away that to go? There would be a mean impossible because it would take..

"The factual feed does about you of secret societies paranormal experiences, stories, and everything. In that booth framework. You hear me UCLA me and says he started making videos after a few things in his life went wrong. So how did you end up homeless. Wrong girlfriends. But he says he tapped into a community of counterculture YouTubers. Eventually, he says he made it into a fulltime job and that's different from the older generation of UFO researches like Bruce Maccabi who pursued this on the side most of the time. Yeah, I noticed that a lot of the videos I was watching had ads running on them every time someone views, one of these ads, small amount of money flows back to the video creator. Some of the bigger accounts like secure team. Ten also use patriot. That's a website that lets people set up payments to content. Creators. So view is directly support someone's work. I discovered the audiences for these videos are very engaged. Heathcliff page has a very active comments section, and he told me he gets some of the material for his videos from his audience. How often do you get sent examples of a UFO sightings or what have you. I think between the done on the twenty per day. Yeah, I asked YouTube what their policy was on these UFO videos. They said misinformation is not against the community guidelines, even if it goes viral for video to be removed. It would have to be considered harassment or hate speech or violate some other guideline. YouTube spokesperson. Jessica Mason did say that advertisers can opt out of showing their videos on paranormal or Colt topics like a denial of the moon landing or a UFO citing. So unabated by YouTube, these videos spread and there are other forms to like Facebook and read it where people can discuss UFO's aliens all manner of paranormal activity. So perhaps it's no surprise that UFO sightings a way up compared to a few decades ago. The national UFO reporting center in Devon fort Washington, which is not a federal agency. By the way, says there were three hundred ninety four reports in the month of July this year that's down from about seven hundred and fifty sightings in July two thousand fifteen, but still. Hey, wait higher than in the nineteen nineties. Obviously, the internet makes it easier than ever to report a formal citing. The internet also makes it easier for these videos to spread and crucially, it's a lot easier now to alter a photo to show evidence of extraterrestrial life, and it was when people had the double exposed their own film in a darkroom..

"Evil alien story. Yeah, it was clear. I mean, you know, here's one of those scientific things that bug me when the UFO's were in in the fifties and sixties the, they call it. The t h in the following feel the extraterrestrial hypothesis. That was the main thing where they come in from Mars, where they come in from Jupiter, where they coming. You know, we're we're in a solar system where they're coming from, and then later on it becomes apparent the more we explore space and learn about our solar system and the scope of the universe that is very unlikely were being visited by by anybody from outside the solar system, but the planet they're supposed to come from, don't they don't suit it. They're unsuitable for life, right? So I kind of anyway, well said, well said, so you know, just lots of indicators that that nothing like we nothing that lives on those planets would be able to revive here. If there was anything on this planet, but life. As we understand it can't survive there. So so the legends change, they become more magic oriented, fantasy ultra dimensional that sort of thing. And how did they evolve been in their appearance to today's a stereo topple generalization with mobile humanoid or. The black suits and black cars. Thanks to be a common theme in the folklore. And then by the time it gets to the comic book that sort of cements it. You know, a lot of times it would be a black Cadillac, which is speaking of this whole altered to mental ultra. Terrestrial hypothesis thing multiple authors have implied that the men in black don't have to be a government agency or aliens. They could be demonic entities..
