I’ve known Doc online for ages from when he did an online video education type thing. It was a pleasure finding out he’s even more skilled as a blues keyboardist of some repute. This is his current gig—before Good Cookies he was with the Vincent Hayes Project. Hey here’s one of those for you : )

Fabulous!

Credit for these videos being available to us plebes goes to the user sittingduck at Unmanned Spaceflight, a project of The Planetary Society, which has some rather dedicated people who document Curiosity’s activities in detail on a sol-to-sol basis. Very cool. The necessary software to do this was created by Rob Haarsma. See above for the link.

[via jeep3r, rubberneck, Member; here.]

This kind of immersion is possible by creating a 3D mesh from the stereo views of Curiosity’s navigation cameras (greyscale). This means that the shapes and general dimensions of the rocks and landscape are amazingly accurate. The whole scene has been imported into Blender (a free 3D editing program), merged with high-resolution color images from Curiosity’s MastCam and all that was finally compiled into a video.

I do believe we are on our way!

And I don’t think it gets any better than that.

Dig it.

I was looking for a similar one, more recent issue of the wonderful Joe Rogan show, one where these two great minds go up against the willfully ignorant but quite smart Michael Shermer, Super Skeptic. But I admit to being absolutely thrilled that I found this one! It’s three and a half hours long—and I could not stop watching it. Couldn’t!

This particular podcast has within it what has got to be the single most awesome and profound revelation of reality—REAL reality—that has ever hit my mind. And oh Lordy do the pieces ever fit. Perfectly. All of them. Mind : Blown. To freakin’ smithereens, man. This has got to be what happened. There is no way anyone can ever pull me back.

Not that I was ever far… I knew there was an advanced civilization that ended and we are the scraggly survivors… but… to see the evidence… yes, evidence… testifying in unequivocal and unerasable style as to what happened to them… it is just profound and quite frankly stunning. It can take a bit, because the scale is so vast that it is almost inconceivable.

So many disciplines come together to tell the story. But we are just at the tip of the iceberg in understanding our past. It is also important to realize that the same thing can happen to us. It is not speculation, more a matter of when. And if we get on the stick we, with our present day resources and going forward can come up with a solution. It is thankfully, quite likely that the corporate world can be convinced to solve it, because doing so will allow them to collect vast riches in the near future, something they are known to have at least a passing interest in.

Please take the time to watch it. If you are on this blog you will very likely love it and be as gob-smacked as I am.

This one was posted to a non-musical post I made on fb by my dear friend Frank, I think to soothe my battered soul!

He got me all excited of course, Miss Fish has that effect on me : )

She is so very good, a true master of the blues at such a young age and so very scrumptious to boot, what more could anyone ask for in a Goddess?

Hmmm?

A long, long time ago, Peru and Brazil were, shall we say, not pleased with each other and there were continual difficulties over the border between their countries. It must be noted that the entire length of the disputed area is tropical rainforest, pretty much,, i.e., deep, dark jungle, passable even today only with very high effort and golly, the sitch a hundred years ago? Fuggedaboudit! Some iffiness might be expected. But something had to be done.

OK, maybe a lot or a little of that scenario is a product of igular speculation but hey, it came out the same way…

Lt. Col. Percival Harrison Fawcett

The British ruled the world back then, so they took on the job of sorting out the border for those wacky South Americans. They needed somebody good at mapping in the middle of the jungle and keeping a good head. Not many of those folks around.

Chosen for the job was a Lieutenant Colonel in the British Army with a DSO, Distinguished Service Order, an Artillery officer by trade. By passion, though, Lt. Col. Percival Harrison Fawcett was an explorer and an archaeologist of some notoriety throughout the world. He got the job done. I personally think that that is the sole reason for all those terribly straight lines at the border there. Amazing work. To me, at least.

An incident that occurred during the couse of this mission in 1907 somewhere in the waters of the Beni swamps is what we are interested in.

It was fleeting and for us, significant af but he took it in stride along with all the ‘regular’ unknowns…bugs and birds and bats and such.

He certainly had passion and drive, not to mention expert skills and was in a serious quest for a long lost City of Gold that was rumored to be in the area after he learned of it while reading an explorer’s report from 1743 that hinted strongly enough at it to convince our man that it was worth spending every minute of free time looking for. He never did find it, sadly, but he passed looking for it, as one should if one is going to, doing what you love, for he never returned from his last excursion to find it.

Wiki on the Colonel

Lieutenant Colonel Percival Harrison Fawcett DSO (18 August 1867 – during or after 1925) was a British geographer, artillery officer, cartographer, archaeologist and explorer of South America. Along with his eldest son, Fawcett disappeared in 1925 during an expedition to find “Z” – his name for an ancient lost city, which he and others believed to exist and to be the remains of El Dorado, in the jungles of Brazil.[1]

Google search overview

Madre de Dios is a region in southeastern Peru’s Amazon Basin, bordering Brazil and Bolivia. In the west, vast Manú National Park encompasses Andean highland, cloud forest and lowland jungle. Celebrated for their biodiversity, the savannahs and old-growth rainforest of Tambopata Reserve lie in the southeast. Just north is regional capital Puerto Maldonado, at the convergence of the Madre de Dios and Tambopata rivers.

Area: 32,935 mi²
Founded: December 26, 1912
Dialing code: 82

Here is the scope of the area off of the Google satellite. Google maps page centered on this area.

Needless to say, it is about as “jungle” as you can get on this Earth. As you can see…
note: the pic below is interactive and you can do a 360° turn and zoom in and out : )

I personally am well pleased with the fact that the fabulous Ollantaytambo and famous Cusco are only a stone’s throw away. Save on travel, eh what? Not only that, but on a more serious note the closeness of such places lends a good dollop of credence to the good Colonel’s prize actually existing. And as the mighty Pucabob, Fortean of Maine, reminds us, they’ve found 56 cities under the canopy so far using the spiffy new LIDAR radar instruments, so hey, it’s like this—we know they could do it and make it look easy and I certainly do imagine they could do a heck of a lot more than we could ever give them credit for.

But I don’t want to get too far off track as this is after all only a blog.

What we are concerned with is that in 1907 Colonel Fawcett saw an animal that he took to be a Diplodocus. Yes, the dinosaur. He included it in his reports back. Apparently the folks that live around there were at least aware of it. And the terrain is perfect for the thing, just like it’s ancestors lived in. Well, pretty much. Hot, wet and lots of water.

A good overview is located at a place called Genesis Park, where you may want to avoid any references to a religious agenda that’s present. I do note with some sadness that thesem sorts of sites are the only ones who will carry this sort of thing these days. Not so in the past… So they have a page on this called Diplodocus in the Amazon, where the two snippets below are extracted from…

“In 1907 Lieutenant-Colonel Percy Fawcett of the British Army was sent to mark the boundaries between Brazil and Peru. He was an officer in the Royal Engineers and was well known as a meticulous recorder of facts. In the Beni Swamps of Madre de Dios Colonel P. H. Fawcett saw an animal he believed to be Diplodocus… The Diplodocus story is confirmed by many of the tribes east of the Ucayali, a region covered by Clark.” (Clark, Leonard, E., The Rivers Ran East, 2001, p. xvi.) The drawing to the left is by Colonel Fawcett’s son, Brian. (World Explorer Magazine, Vol. 1, No. 6, p. 62.) The intrepid explorer also picked up reports of huge monsters inhabiting the swamps near the Madidi River in Bolivia. “There are snakes and insects unknown to scientists, and in the forests of the Madidi some mysterious and enormous beast has frequently been disturbed in the swamps–possibly a primeval monster like those reported in other parts of the continent. Certainly tracks have been found belonging to no known animal–huge tracks, far greater than could have been made by any species we know.” (Fawcett, Exploration Fawcett, 1953, pp. 220-221.)

I like this one…

In later years, a few occasional reports concerning the “Madidi monster” would reach the west. Modern-day explorer Leonard Clark picked up stories of Indians seeing long-necked animals that browsed on the vegetation and attacked canoes that approached them. “Speaking of reptiles, old boy, Colonel Fawcett reached the eastern edge of Madre de Dios, out where you are going. It is a country of swamps apparently. One day while running his dugouts through it, he saw a great reptilian head rise out of the jungle, but before he could shoot, the head was lowered. From the noise the beast made getting away, he took it to be some sort of dinosaur. His Indians revolted and it was necessary to return to Mato Grosso. When I smiled, he presently added, ‘Don’t be too sure they don’t exist – we hear a great many stories from the Indians here!’” (Clark, Leonard, The Rivers Ran East, 2001, p. 41.)

There isn’t much on the webz and a lot of sites just post the page the above are taken from but Googling Fawcett will net you some good stuff. Here are some to get you started.

If I was in good shape and could see where I was going I would most assuredly go and look for the creature. Absolutely. The creationists from the Genesis Park site went down there in 2005 in answer to my question in the title, which I think is great, but, of course, found nothing. They say that not  verymany of the locals knew of the thing but a few did still. Perhaps that means they finally did all go up to heaven in the century since our man saw one. But I think they are still there, a very few probably, hanging on, just farther away from the ever-encroaching people.

We can hope, eh? Mokele Mbembe bin needin’ some play dates, don’tcha know…

I better post this. For some reason I inadvertently hit publish twice before I was done… the first time before I even wrote anything! Sigh.

Wow, here’s a cool blast from the past, one I didn’t even remember, glommed out of Lon Strickler’s Phantoms and Monsters newsletter.

I am lucky enough to have known Mr Keel, this through my involvement with the International Fortean Organization back in the day. He was a close mentor of the late head of that group (and the girl who tried to kill me, too!). I enjoyed conversations and dinner with the great man. I remember him telling me that he was no longer doing Forteana since the field was then just so out of whack. Soon after he fell into a long illness with his dear friend Doug Skinner looking in on him frequently. And then he was gone. He was always wanting to relay tips on diabetes to me but the group head never passed them on. Mr Keel was a sweetheart in addition to being a world traveler and investigator of strange things.

Stuart Whitman’s Alien Encounter

Famed journalist and ufologist John Keel related an account that involved celebrity actor Stuart Whitman:

A widespread power failure blacked out New York City and much of the northeastern United States late on the afternoon of November 10, 1965. By dawn of the following day, power still had not been restored. Movie and television actor Stuart Whitman, who was staying in a Manhattan hotel, heard a “sound like a whippoorwill whistling outside my twelfth story window.” When he stepped to the window, he was startled, so he told Hollywood reporter Vernon Scott two months later, to see two UFOs hovering nearby. According to his account;

“One of them was orange, and the other was blue. They gave off a strange luminescent light, so I couldn’t see if there were portholes or who was in them. Then I heard them speaking to me as if they were on a loudspeaker. They spoke to me in English. It may not have been audible to anyone else. They said they wanted to talk to me because I appeared to have no malice or hate. They said they were fearful of earth because Earthlings were messing around with unknown quantities and might disrupt the balance of the universe or their planet.

The people in the UFO said the blackout was just a little demonstration of their power and that they could do a lot more with almost no effort. It served as a warning. They said they could stop our whole planet from functioning. They asked me to do what I could to fight malice, prejudice, and hate on Earth, and then they took off. I couldn’t say how big the objects were, but when they took off I felt elated. I wasn’t even shocked. And I know I wasn’t asleep because I was standing by the window and wide awake the entire time. I don’t know why they picked me as a contact. But I’ll swear on a Bible that I saw them out there and that they talked to me.”

Whitman insisted that he had not been drinking. Scott, who thought the story was absurd, nonetheless acknowledged that Whitman seemed sincere. It was not, after all, the sort of tale likely to advance his career. He never spoke publicly of the incident again.

Mac Tonnies talks about The Cryptoterrestrial

Author Mac Tonnies (After The Martian Apocalypse) talks about his cryptoterrestrial hypothesis for the UFO phenomenon, from an interview I conducted with him in Kansas City in May 2006.

(c) 2006 Redstar Films Limited

Got reminded of our Mac the other day in the below old (2012) thread by Karl 12 which was just bumped but I am still not sure why.. Never got to meet him. He was a breath of fresh air, most assuredly.

The loss of Mac Tonnies at the age of 34 was a great shame but as he says in the interview the CTH could be an option that warrants further investigation – don’t know if other members agree with the idea of a race of techologically superior indigenous humanoids sharing our planet and being in some way responsible for UFO (or USO) reports but for further discussion the interview below with Tim Binnall really does go in depth and expands on other ufological aspects surrounding the hypothesis:

 

Mac starts out by giving us the basics on the CTH and brings everyone up to speed on just what it is. He talks about how the CTH came about and what separates it from the Jaques Valee theory of interdimensional beings.

If the cryptoterrestrials exist here on Earth, where are they most likely to be located ? He explains how the CTH “works” better than the ET hypothesis when it comes to reports of UFOs over nuclear facilities. He also explains how abductions may be best explained with the cryptoterrestrial hypothesis.

Mac tries to clear up the misconception that the CTH v. ETH debate is an “either / or” scenario. He talks about methods of testing the cryptoterrestrial hypothesis. We find out what Mac thinks the CTs would look like. Also, how does he fits the classic UFO scenario into the CTH. (If the CTs are on Earth, what are UFOs ?)

Interview Link

Cheers.

My advice right now is to go over and hit that interview link just above. If you dig this stuff you will be delighted. The video here is just a teaser, really as well as a quick summary for the attention-span damaged.

Enjoy

ETA: I thought that I should at least add this one so more volk can get up to speed on this very good theory.

The Paracast April 11, 2010 – Kimball, Redfern and Bishop

Excerpts from the April 11, 2010 episode of The Paracast, where Nick Redfern, Greg Bishop and I joined host Gene Steinberg to talk about Mac Tonnies’ last book, The Cryptoterrestrials. In this clip, we continue our discussion about the similarities between religion and ufology, and the need to keep an open mind when dealing with the paranormal, and to ask questions.

Don’t ya love her madly
Don’t ya need her badly
Don’t ya love her ways
Tell me what you say
Don’t ya love her madly
Wanna be her daddy
Don’t ya love her face
Don’t ya love her as she’s walkin’ out the door

All your love is gone
So sing a lonely song
Of a deep blue dream
Seven horses seem to be on the mark
Yeah, don’t you love her
Don’t you love her as she’s walkin’ out the door
All your love
All your love
All your love
Yeah, all your love is gone
So sing a lonely song
Of a deep blue dream
Seven horses seem to be on the mark
Well, don’t ya love her madly
Don’t ya love her madly
Don’t ya love her madly

Ah yes… once again our venerable gortex, Knight of Ni and Member, delivers the goods in the beauty of the wonders of space department in his newspost Oh My God, Look at Saturn’s North Pole.

Suchly…

The image was compiled by space enthusiast Jason Major from raw images captured by Cassini this week on its latest ring-grazing orbit.

Major compiled the image from raw data that was posted to Cassini’s image archive yesterday. “If I see something interesting and it also happens to have been captures in visible-light color channels, I assemble a color version in Photoshop to see what the awesome level is,” Major told Gizmodo over Twitter DM. “That vortex pic was a 10.”


At a talk I attended at the American Geophysical Union’s annual conference in San Francisco last December, Hampton University planetary scientist John Blalock reaffirmed that while Saturn’s north polar vortex is indeed blue, the rest of the hexagon is definitely yellow these days.
“When we look from 2012 to 2016, [the] hexagon is maybe a little brighter, but the interior and especially the doughnut region [at the center] looks brighter,” Blalock said, adding later in the talk that the “brightening is consistent with an increase in the production of photochemical haze products in the upper atmosphere.”

Saturn’s Pole is blue and there’s nothing we can do ..dan der dan der dan dan.

Gortex always has the heads up on this sort of thing. For this I thank him.
