Ancient DNA from a teen girl reveals previously unknown group of humans

The skeletal remains of an ancient teenage Toalean woman were nestled among large rocks, which were placed in the burial pit discovered in a cave on Sulawesi.

(CNN)The bones of a teenage hunter-gatherer who died more than 7,000 years ago on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi tell the story of a previously unknown group of humans.

This distinct human lineage has never been found anywhere else in the world, according to new research.

The study published Wednesday in the journal Nature.

“We have discovered the first ancient human DNA in the island region between Asia and Australia, known as ‘Wallacea’, providing new insight into the genetic diversity and population history of early modern humans in this little understood part of the world,” said study coauthor Adam Brumm, a professor of archaeology at Griffith University’s Australian Research Centre for Human Evolution, via email.

The Leang Panninge cave is where researchers uncovered the remains a young hunter-gatherer from 7,000 years ago.

The first modern humans used the Wallacea islands, mainly Indonesian islands that include Sulawesi, Lombok and Flores, as they crossed from Eurasia to the Australian continent more than 50,000 years ago, researchers believe. The exact route or how they navigated this crossing, however, is unknown.

“They must have done so using relatively sophisticated watercraft of some kind, as there were no land bridges between the islands, even during the glacial peaks of the last ice age, when global sea levels were up to 140 meters (459 feet) lower than they are today,” Brumm said.

Tools and cave paintings have suggested that humans were living on these islands by 47,000 years ago, but the fossil record is sparse and ancient DNA degrades more rapidly in the tropical climate.

However, researchers uncovered the skeleton of a female between the ages of 17 and 18 in a cave on Sulawesi in 2015. Her remains were buried in the cave 7,200 years ago. She was part of the Toalean culture, only found in a pocket of Sulawesi’s southwestern peninsula. The cave is part of an archaeological site called Leang Panninge.

Maros points are associated with the Toalean culture.

“The ‘Toaleans’ is the name archaeologists have given to a rather enigmatic culture of prehistoric hunter-gatherers that lived in the forested plains and mountains of South Sulawesi between around 8,000 years ago until roughly the fifth century AD,” said Brumm via email. “They made highly distinctive stone tools (including tiny, finely crafted arrowheads known as ‘Maros points’) that are not found anywhere else on the island or in wider Indonesia.”

The young hunter-gatherer is the first largely complete and well-preserved skeleton associated with the Toalean culture, Brumm said.

Lead study author Selina Carlhoff was able to retrieve DNA from the wedge-shaped petrous bone at the base of the skull.

“It was a major challenge, as the remains had been strongly degraded by the tropical climate,” said Carlhoff, also a doctoral candidate at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History in Jena, Germany, in a statement.

Secrets hiding in DNA

The work to retrieve the genetic information was well worth it.

The young woman’s DNA showed that she descended from the first wave of modern humans to enter Wallacea 50,000 years ago. This was part of the initial colonization of “Greater Australia,” or the combined ice age landmass of Australia and New Guinea. These are the ancestors of present-day Indigenous Australians and Papuans, Brumm said.

Fragmentary remains of the girl’s skull were used to retrieve her DNA.

And it turns out that the oldest genome traced to the Wallacea islands revealed something else: previously unknown ancient humans.

She also shares ancestry with a separate and distinct group from Asia who likely arrived after the colonization of Greater Australia — because modern Indigenous Australians and Papuans don’t share ancestry with this group, Brumm said.

“Previously, it was thought that the first time people with Asian genes entered Wallacea was around 3,500 years ago when Austronesian-speaking farmers from Neolithic Taiwan swept down through the Philippines and into Indonesia,” he said.

“It suggests that there might have been a distinct group of modern humans in this region that we really had no idea about up until now, as archaeological sites are so scarce in Wallacea and ancient skeletal remains are rare.”

New clue to human evolution’s biggest mystery emerges in Philippines

No descendents of this lineage remain.

Her genome included another trace of an enigmatic and extinct group of humans: Denisovans. The handful of fossils signifying that these early humans ever existed are largely from Siberia and Tibet.

“The fact that their genes are found in the hunter-gatherers of Leang Panninge supports our earlier hypothesis that the Denisovans occupied a far larger geographical area” than previously understood, said study coauthor Johannes Krause, a professor of archaeogenetics at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, in a statement.

But when her DNA was compared with that of other hunter-gatherers who lived west of Wallacea at the same time, their DNA didn’t contain any traces of Denisovan DNA.

“The geographic distribution of Denisovans and modern humans may have overlapped in the Wallacea region. It may well be the key place where Denisova people and the ancestors of indigenous Australians and Papuans interbred,” said study coauthor Cosimo Posth, a professor at the University of Tübingen’s Senckenberg Centre for Human Evolution and Palaeoenvironment in Frankfurt, Germany, in a statement.

Researchers don’t know what happened to the Toalean culture, and this latest discovery is one piece of the puzzle as they try to understand the ancient genetic history of humans in southeast Asia. Brumm hopes that more ancient DNA from the Toalean people can be recovered to reveal its diversity “and its wider ancestral story.”

Pretty cool, no?

I’m hoping they’ll image it with SuperCam, then we’ll have a better idea. The sandy finger it is on is not very wide, so it wont be very tall. You can use the helicopters shadow during landing as a scale to measure the width of those long thin dunes as its shadow is 1.2 always meters wide.

They do have both images, but the lenses were only set at 34mm zoom. Hopefully we’ll see then zoom in to the full 110mm in the next day or two, or even use the SuperCam to image the helicopter and its situation a lot better. We know from the landing images from the helicopter that at least one of the feet sank a small amount into the sand, so it will be interesting to see how level the blades are before they plan the next flight. They will already know that information as the rotorcraft has internal sensors that can report its position.

Lab-Grown Brain ‘Organoids’ Now Have Primitive Eyeballs

Matthew Hart
Thu, August 19, 2021, 12:15 PM

“Has science gone too far?” is a question we should all be asking ourselves on the regular. After all we’re moving through an era where scientists can do everything from making squid clear to levitating melting metal. Now, however, researchers at the University Hospital Düsseldorf in Germany have done something truly Frankenstein-ish: created tiny brains with semi-functional eyeballs. (May Galactus help us all.)


A series of “organoids” with primitive black eyes set against black and clear backgrounds.
Elke Gabriel et al./Cell Stem Cell

New Atlas reported on the scientific breakthrough, which the German researchers and their colleagues from other organizations outlined in a study published in the journal Cell Stem Cell. The researchers built upon previous experimentation with tiny clumps of cells known as “brain organoids.” They added primitive eyes to the clumps to help study the way the two organs interact with each other.

As the name implies, a brain organoid, or “cerebral organoid,” is very much like a tiny human brain. In fact, cerebral organoids can be equated to the brain of a ten-week-old embryo even though scientists grow them in vitro from stem cells. (Scientists produce the stem cells by reverting human skin cells back to their stem cell state.)

“In the mammalian brain, nerve fibers of retinal ganglion cells reach out to connect with their brain targets, an aspect that has never before been shown in an in vitro system,” senior study author Jay Gopalakrishnan said in a press release. “These organoids can help to study brain-eye interactions during embryo development, model congenital retinal disorders, and generate patient-specific retinal cell types for personalized drug testing and transplantation therapies,” Gopalakrishnan added.

As for what the eyed organoids were actually sensing? Gopalakrishnan and his colleagues say the organoids’ eyeballs were indeed detecting light. The spherical sensors even contained primitive lenses and corneal tissue. Although we still have no idea if the brains “experienced” these light images. And while we’re guessing not, that may change as scientists continue to push the edge of what’s possible.

UFO visible in infrared, but not in daylight cameras! FLIR videos.

It was about 10:00 am, Thursday Dec. 8, 2016. I was typing an email to a vendor, when a coworker approached me and said, “You need to check this shit out, man.” Slightly annoyed at breaking my concentration with the email, I got up to look at his discovery. He was testing a government FLIR out back like we all do, to check for problems and get a “worldview” look from it. In the distance, there was an orb. This orb didn’t move, which was immediately disturbing since everything moves out back, even the moon. “It’s been like that for at least ten minutes” he told me, and it could not be seen with day cameras. They are boresighted to see the exact same image that the IR sees. The laser rangefinder wouldn’t ping it; we couldn’t get a distance on it. We have pinged mylar balloons before at 5.6 miles with no problem, but not this object. We watched it for a few minutes, and concluded we needed to set up a better high-def system to view it. That system took about 5 minutes to cool down, and upon viewing the sky the orb was gone. We panned the sky in vain. We set the original system back up, but still no orb.

Every day I test the FLIRs I look for this thing again.

It didn’t do anything different than what you see- it remained in the sky at that point exactly. We couldn’t get any better data than what you see- thus the decision to put a high-def FLIR in its place.

It’s still in the sky. That’s me centering it in to the reticle with the FLIR system. It never moved- pretty eerie. That is until we set up a new system and couldn’t acquire it again. Hindsight is 20/20.

This guy has the creds…He also has the images.

(NOTE: I suggest you also watch the succinct 15 minute video)

 

An independent lab founder and seasoned pathologist has graphically displayed the inflammatory damage to vital organs inflicted by the COVID jab-created spike protein.

During a one-year anniversary White Coat Summit on vaccines, Dr. Ryan Cole emphasized the finding that the spike protein created by injected mRNA spreads throughout the body, and itself causes disease – and he had the lab images to show it.

VIDEO:
www.youtube.com…

Cole presented these images, which showed post-COVID jab inflammation in organs such as the heart, lungs, and kidneys, as corroboration of lab studies in which injecting the spike protein “with no body of the virus” in animals “induced the same disease” that COVID-19 causes.

Cole supported the finding by other scientists that the spike protein doesn’t remain in the shoulder area, but “circulates in your blood” and “lands in multiple organs in the body,” where ACE2 receptors allow the spike protein to bind to organ tissue.

Cole kicked off his visual evidence of spike protein-induced damage with images displaying the spike protein’s effects on mitochondria, the “engine” of our cells. The microscopic image showed that post-COVID jab, one person’s mitochondria became abnormally disjointed and fragmented.

Cole went on to show that the image of lung tissue of a jabbed individual appeared dramatically different than normal, healthy lung tissue, with denser pigmentation that Cole said indicated inflammation.

According to Cole, the spike protein bonded to the ACE2 receptors in the lung, provoking an inflammatory response in which the immune system “attack[s] your own body.”

Cole then pulled up a study demonstrating that the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2 crosses the blood brain barrier in mice, backing it up with scans showing that the jab’s spike protein took a similar path.

“I kind of like my brain cells to be where they are and not be blown apart. So why in the world would we put a toxin into the human body that’s going to disrupt the blood vessels in your brain, allow the spike in there [to] cause inflammation,” said Cole.

Cole also displayed a post-COVID jab image that appeared to show the swelling of heart tissue. “See those blue arrows around the white? That’s inflammation in the heart. That’s not normal. That’s after a shot. That’s a spike protein landing there. That’s your immune system attacking your own tissues,” said Cole.

“Once you have heart damage, the heart does not heal itself. So tell me you want to give a 12 year old, a 5 year old, a 13 year old, an 18 year old a shot. Let’s give a kid a toxin, ruin his heart for life. Stop and think about what we’re doing. We need to stop the insanity immediately.”

He proceeded to show pictures of inflammation in the kidneys, liver, and testes that occurred after injection with the mRNA jab, adding that a Japanese study showed that the lipid nanoparticle surrounding the mRNA concentrates in the ovaries.

I find this part of the article especially horrifying…

Cole also pointed out that experiments are showing that the COVID jabs “dysregulate your immune response,” citing a Netherlands study that Cole said shows that immune cells are being “paralyzed” after injection with the COVID jab.

Cole suggested that CD8 “killer T-cells” that “keep cancer in check” are among the immune cells being dysregulated.

“I have seen a 10 to 20 fold increase of uterine cancer in the last six months in my laboratory, and I keep data year to year in the last six months. When did we start the shots? January,” said Cole.

www.lifesitenews.com…

Dr. Cole suggests that getting the “vaccine” may be paralyzing our own cancer-fighting T-cells…and that he is noticing a huge new increase in uterine cancer in his own lab.

None of this sounds good.
If Dr. Cole is correct…we are eventually going to see some very disturbing large-scale medical fallout from these “vaccines”.

It’s all part of the plan, I’m afraid.

In Karelia In 1985, A UFO Dragged A Freight Train For More Than An Hour

This story is most often called “the incident with train No. 1702”, it happened in 1985 in the Karelian Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic.

For the first time it was published in the journal “Technology of Youth” #8, 1989. Nowadays, it is rarely discussed anywhere, although this is one of the most unusual ufological cases on the territory of the USSR.

In February 1985, a freight train was carrying 70 empty wagons to Kostomuksha via Petrozavodsk and Suoyarvi. The locomotive was driven by the driver Sergei Orlov and his assistant V. Mironov.

At 20:35 they passed through the Essoila station, everything was fine, the train was going according to the schedule. But then suddenly Orlov noticed some strange object in the shape of a ball from the side of the trees. The object moved parallel to the movement of the train and did not lag behind.

Orlov and Mironov closely watched the object, wondering what it was.

“Look, it released a beam of light to the ground, and then pulled it back …” – Orlov remarked. Then, the ball rushed sharply across the train and now “flew” in front of the locomotive, ahead of it by about 30-50 meters.

Orlov got scared of the alleged collision of the train with the “ball” and turned off the propulsion engines, and then pressed the brakes with all his might. But the train didn’t stop and didn’t even slow down, it continued to move forward, as if it were being pulled by something.

The shocked Orlov and Mironov could only look powerlessly at how the mysterious object was moving in front of the train and it seemed that it was he who was dragging the train.

Later they told the investigators of the Department of Internal Affairs that the object was of the correct geometric shape, about four meters in diameter, and it moved not high above the ground completely silently.

The train was approaching the Novye Peski station. Orlov turned on the radio and contacted the station attendant and told her about the mysterious object that had taken their train in tow.

The woman did not understand what he was talking about, but decided to go out to the platform and see with her own eyes. She was very surprised when she saw two (!) Strange objects flying in front of the train.

The first was a kind of vibrating apparatus (a classic disc-shaped UFO), the second was a luminous ball. They flew in front of a diesel locomotive, which was moving at a speed of at least 50 km per hour.
From their cabin, Orlov and Mironov could not see the second UFO, since the luminous ball covered it with itself, so it was clear why later they did not tell anything about it.

In front of the station, the train did not slow down at all and the attendant was frightened when she realized that the ball was moving directly to the station house and was now going to crash into it.

However, right at the arrow, the ball abruptly separated from the locomotive and smoothly flew around the house, and then returned to the train again.

The train, meanwhile, drove past the Novye Peski station, but at the moment when the ball flew off the train, its speed dropped sharply and various objects hit the driver’s cab, and Orlov and Mironov themselves were badly hurt, hitting the windshield.

But as soon as the ball returned to the train, the speed of the train increased again. When the train approached the station Zastava, the mysterious ball left the train again and disappeared somewhere behind the forest.

The train immediately slowed down and then managed to stop at the station. Orlov immediately jumped out of his cab to check if the train was damaged during the entire incident, but when he began to bypass the locomotive, a bright beam of light illuminated him from above.

This beam literally pressed the man to the side of the locomotive and he could move with great difficulty. Somehow he managed to get back to the cabin, and when he got into the cabin, the train went by itself, as if waiting for it.

So the ball dragged the train along for some time, and then for the third time flew away somewhere, and this time finally.

In total, the UFO dragged a train with 70 empty wagons for 1 hour and 20 minutes for more than 50 km. It was noted that the UFO helped the train save 300 kg of diesel fuel.

Orlov and Mironov did not suffer much physically, but they had a very strong nervous shock. The correctness of their testimony was confirmed by the diagrams of the recorders installed on the locomotive, and some documents.

However, none of the officials could provide a logical explanation for this incident. By the way, it was reported that a strange glowing ball was seen at the Karelian station Kutizhma and shortly before the incident with train # 1702.

I find this very interesting. So many questions.

Hubble is back and once again delivering the goods , this time the telescope has captured a stunning image of an ‘Einstein Ring’ , basically a cosmic looking glass created in this instance by the gravity of 2 Galaxies at the centre of the ring.

In the center in the image is a shiny, near-perfect ring with what appear to be four bright spots threaded along it, looping around two more points with a golden glow.
This is called an Einstein ring, and those bright dots are not six galaxies, but three: the two in the middle of the ring, and one quasar behind it, its light distorted and magnified as it passes through the gravitational field of the two foreground galaxies.

Because the mass of the two foreground galaxies is so high, this causes a gravitational curvature of space-time around the pair. Any light that then travels through this space-time follows this curvature and enters our telescopes smeared and distorted – but also magnified.

Just fabulous! Bravo Hubble Team!

Orichalcum: The Mysterious Lost Metal Of Atlantis Found In A 2600-Year-Old Shipwreck

Ansh Srivastava
August 16, 2021

Ancient Greeks believed that the “Orichalcum was a metal that could only be found in one place: the lost city of Atlantis.”

One of the most baffling mysteries of human civilization is the disappearance of Atlantis city. The enigmatic city disappeared into thin air some 11,000 years ago and has been mentioned in some of the great works of Greek philosopher Plato. The Atlantis city is known as one of the lost cities.

Theories and research suggest that the great city of Atlantis possessed technology that was far advanced than what we possess even now. It is also believed by many that the Atlanteans did not fall apart but moved to another planet using their advanced spacecraft and ships. However, on the other hand, some believe that the extent of power and corruption present in the city doomed its future by causing a great nuclear war, a war that changed the entire geography of the land.

No person knows the exact location of the Atlantis city, but surprisingly, Plato asserted that the city was located in front of “The Pillars of Hercules”, in reference to the “Rock of Gibraltar” and North Africa. Several expeditions and investigations have been carried out to find the accurate location of the lost city but all failed. No one could ever prove the existence of the city.

Interestingly, a team of marine archaeologists has recovered 39 ingots of “Orichalcum (Orichalcum)” from a ship sunk some 2,600 years ago 1,000 meters off the coast of Gela, south of Sicily indicating that the legends of Atlantis city could be more than just stories.

A renowned archaeologist from the office of the Superintendent of the Sea in Sicily, Professor Sebastiano Tusa stated that the discovered in the wreckage of the sunken ship was probably the mythical red metal known as Orichalcum. It is believed by the experts that the ingots of Atlantis were being transported from Gela, south of Sicily, to Greece or Asia Minor. Theories suggest that the ship carrying the mysterious metal was most likely caught in a major storm and sank just as it was about to enter the Sicilian port.

“The shipwreck is from the first half of the 6th century. The ship was only 1,000 meters off the coast of Gela, at a depth of 3 meters. Nothing similar has ever been found. We knew about Orichalcum from ancient texts and some ornamental objects.”

Professor Sebastiano Tusa

Rich history is associated with the enigmatic Orichalcum, the metal of Atlantis. The composition and origin of the metal have been debated and discussed for over a century now. It is believed in Greek Mythology that the Orichalcum was invented by Cadmus, a character from Greek mythology.

Plato classified Orichalcum as a legendary metal in the Critias dialogue. The lost city of Atlantis was described to be elucidated with the flashing red light of Orichalcum.

“The metal, second only in value to gold, was mined from Atlantis to cover all the surfaces of the Temple of Poseidon.”

Plato

A majority of experts concur that the Orichalcum is a copper alloy like that made by carburizing. Carburizing is a process through which zinc ore, carbon, and copper metal are combined in a crucible. Upon deep analysis using X-ray fluorescence, it was found out that 39 Atlantis ingots were an alloy made with 75-80 percent copper, 14-20 percent zinc, and lower percentages of nickel, lead, and iron.

Professor Tumus shed light on the relevancy of the discovery:

“The find confirms that a century after its founding in 689 BC, Gela grew to become a city rich with workshops of craftsmen specialized in the production of precious artefacts.”

Professor Tumus

So, does the discovery prove the existence of the great city of Atlantis? Professor, writer, and former physicist at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Enrico Mattievich contended that the “ingots are made of brass while the real Orichalcum is composed of made of copper, gold, and silver, and was created in Peru.”

The existence of the city of Atlantis is mentioned in two great works of the Greek philosopher Plato, are Critias and Timaeus. Plato did not invent Atlantis as believed by many, but the traces of the mysterious city dates back deep into history. Plato writes that Atlantis was located in Timaeus:

“For it is related in our records how once upon a time your State stayed the course of a mighty host, which, starting from a distant point in the Atlantic Ocean, was insolently advancing to attack the whole of Europe, and Asia to boot. For the ocean there was at that time navigable; for in front of the mouth which you Greeks call, as you say, ‘the pillars of Heracles,’ there lay an island which was larger than Libya and Asia together; and it was possible for the travelers of that time to cross from it to the other islands, and from the islands to the whole of the continent over against them which encompasses that veritable ocean. For all that we have here, lying within the mouth of which we speak, is evidently a haven having a narrow entrance; but that yonder is a real ocean, and the land surrounding it may most rightly be called, in the fullest and truest sense, a continent. Now in this island of Atlantis there existed a confederation of kings, of great and marvelous power, which held sway over all the island, and over many other islands also and parts of the continent.”

Timaeus 24e–25a, R. G. Bury translation.

So far, no concrete evidence of the existence of the lost city of Atlantis has been found. However, are the Orichalcum ingots discovered near Sicily the definitive evidence for the existence of Atlantis?

As far back as records go there have been thousands of missing people that have just vanished in some of our wildest places. Some are found dazed hundreds of miles from home, or many years later after memory loss. There are hundreds of females who have vanished along our rivers and canals. Sometimes only a limb is found, in some cases it is merely an item of clothing or a purse that is left behind that is found. Each case is labelled as solved or not in the public interest. In every one of these areas there are Canine Reports, UFO abductions, missing time events and all manner of strange phenomena.

Delamere forest is one of those places, it is a small forest set in the county of Cheshire, there are walking trails that criss-cross the forest. Cheshire is well known as a paranormal hotspot and is home to many a ghostly Roman Soldier, or the wailing cries of a white lady and the cackling laugh of Victorian children. I think it will surprise most people that are new to this subject that it is also an area with many Dogman/Werewolf reports.

In the last week alone I have heard from two investigators here in the UK who have had very negative input from an unknown source. Both gentleman have been investigating a number of cases where there are human disappearances in our AONB and Nature Reserves.

They have both received phone calls at home and on their mobiles. Then a mystery warning was posted to one of their homes. One man whos employer was contacted about his extra curricular activity using the works van almost lost his job.

Is it the investigations in to the missing that have caused this show of strength? Have we gotten too close over the last 18mths?

Over the centuries, researchers have found bones and artifacts proving that humans like us have existed for millions of years. Mainstream science, however, has suppressed these facts. Prejudices based on current scientific theory act as a knowledge filter, giving us a picture of prehistory that is largely incorrect. Researcher, Scientists and Author Michael Cremo provides a jaw dropping lecture. Are we being lied to about our past?

Radio First Termer ‘Dave Rabbit’ (Vietnam 1971)

Jonny14
Jun 10, 2014

(‘Early Edition’ broadcast sample) Radio First Termer was an underground (pirate radio) station located in Saigon during the Vietnam War. RFT was manned and hosted by “Dave Rabbit” (Sgt. Clyde David DeLay USAF), his crew included “Pete Sadler”, “Capt. Ivan Pansy”, “Nguyen” and “Ralph”. RFT played hard rock and psychedelic music that were popular with American troops but mainstream AFN radio stations and AFVN did not usually permit to go by the airwaves. Aside from playing ‘hard acid rock’ RFT injected their segments with anti-war commentary, military and dirty jokes. Dave Rabbit’s mission was basically to entertain his fellow servicemen as he did later for the US troops in Iraq (2006).

Dr. Richard Fleming warns that Fauci, NIH have already developed the NEXT bioweapon to be released with HIV-like capabilities that suppress human immunity

BY ETHANH // 2021-08-13 full article

In a new Brighteon Conversation, Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, got the chance to sit down and talk with Dr. Richard Fleming about the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19). And what Fleming had to say about this whole thing is truly eye-opening, including what may be coming next in the plandemic saga. Fleming has a book coming out this fall, by the way, called Is COVID-19 a bioweapon? A scientific and forensic investigation. It dives deep into many of the topics discussed throughout the interview, which you can watch below:

As an esteemed research scientist, Fleming has been closely tracking all available Chinese Virus data ever since the beginning of the plandemic. He has also been looking into where the virus came from, uncovering ugly truths about how the American government funded it at all with taxpayer dollars. Fleming is also concerned about how the virus continues to mutate due to mass vaccination. The very thing that the media says will end the pandemic is just fueling it even more, he warns. “These viruses have a lot of variants,” Fleming stated, emphasizing that the Chinese Virus was not a random occurrence in nature. “I’m actually watching the data that’s being done on the changes in these viruses to watch what’s going on, to watch what changes are occurring, what changes are happening naturally, evolutionary-wise to this virus … it’s making changes like living organisms do.”

Just like how antibiotics trigger “superbugs,” covid vaccines are creating “superviruses”

The rabbit hole goes pretty deep with this virus as it was technically engineered under American oversight, though we now know that much of its development was offshored to China, particularly the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), in order to sidestep domestic restrictions on the gain-of-function biological research that was necessary to produce it. Tony Fauci from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) was of course involved, as was Peter Daszak from EcoHealth Alliance and others from Fort Detrick in Maryland and the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Again, the rabbit hole goes deep. The virus definitely came from a lab, Fleming says, and it is now mutating and spreading new variants due to the vaccines – much like how antibiotics cause the bacteria they are supposed to fight to turn into “superbugs,” some of which are much deadlier than what they started out as. “Pressure selection works,” Fleming explained during the interview about what we are now seeing happen to the Chinese Virus because of the vaccines. “We know that if you put pressure on a species like this virus, it will select out for the ones that are most viable to live and cause a problem.” To make matters worse, Fleming says that Fauci and friends are already working on the next bioweapon that will contain stronger HIV-like properties designed to suppress human immunity. While the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) can be fought off by the immune system, its next iteration will be designed to outsmart the body’s natural defenses. He says the SARS virus that was released back in 2002 was the first iteration of this bioweapon, and the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) is the second. That makes the new, already-in-development, HIV-like virus that is soon to come the third. In the meantime, he warns, those who have been injected with spike proteins and mRNA chemicals via the vaccines will continue to develop serious illnesses from the shots, as well as spread those illnesses to others. Be sure to check out the full interview with Mike Adams and Dr. Richard Fleming at Brighteon.com. You can also keep up with the latest news about the plandemic at Pandemic.news.

Melancholy, the emptiness that incapacitates us through grief

Melancholy, a sculpture created by Albert György, portrays the void that grief leaves us with. The sculpture depicts a figure made of copper sitting on a bench slumped over, with a giant hole in the center of it. This hole represents the massive void that we all feel when we lose someone dear to us, and many people have expressed their appreciation for this sculpture for it portraying the exact emotions they feel, but perhaps haven’t been able to quite put into words.

12 Werewolf Sightings Reported to the Police in Staffordshire.

BBR Witness Report: “I live near the Cannock chase area. I had a real encounter with something strange, out the corner of my eye I saw something that looked like a person in a Chewbacca costume, he was just really bulky and big, whatever it was it stood still like it had been frozen in time, so I shouted in a friendly voice “what are you doing in a costume out here, are you stupid”? He was about 250/300 feet away from me and as I shouted he turned around and let off this growl that was like a lion’s roar but from inside its body. I stood frozen and it turned its leg and went to move, the back muscles expanded like a bodybuilder and it began to run away. It wasn’t coming to me, but running in the opposite direction?

Whatever this “thing” was, it had patches of hair or fur missing on it’s back and right leg? It was a dark colour, you could see the muscles expanding when it moved, it had patches of hair missing like it had been caught on barb wire or attacked in some way? It moved in a weird way, when it turned to look at me, it moved its head and shoulder at the same time, like it couldn’t turn it’s head without turning its body somehow.

ANCIENT ALIENS OF YAKUTIA (UPDATED)

In the North-West of Yakutia, in the area of Upper Vilyui, lies the area known in antiquity as Ulyuyu Cherkechekh or Valley of Death. The Tungus tribes who had lived in the sinister, almost inaccessible area full of broken rock fragments strewn around for hundreds of kilometers, for ages told stories of strange sightings. One, deeply carved in their tribal memory, recalls how their land was swallowed by sudden darkness…

I have always been fascinated by high strangeness in Russia. It’s always nifty and we don’t see much around these parts. So major props to Paul and his deep digging!

Very little of this is known to the general public. I got to hear a little bit from my late, great neighbor, Vittorio Ceci, a kind, sweet Italian man who passed recently at the age of 90. He said “I miss Mussolini.”

North Korean Taepo-dong 2 Missile Launch in 2006 – Glimpse behind the curtain

A long time ago I used to work at USSTRATCOM as an action officer for missile defense. I was stationed there from 1996-1998 as an active duty lieutenant, then I worked as a GS-13 from 2004-2014. It was quite a job, as I was a part of our nuclear deterrent, missile defense and early warning detection.

In 2006 I was put in charge of writing the Ballistic Missile Defense Military Utility Assessment (MUA) for the command. What idiot put me in charge, I’ll never know, but suffice to say it was a learning experience. Lots of trips to DC (to visit JTAMDO) and Colorado Springs (JFCC-Missile Defense) meant that I got to rub elbows with some pretty important people. Obviously that didn’t help me in the long term – heh.

Anyways, in late May 2006 I was summoned to DC to speak to a portion of the Strategic Advisory Group (SAG) that focused on missile defense. They wanted my opinion of how our BMDS would perform if/when North Korea launched the Taepo-dong 2 missile they were stacking. We hadn’t seen it launch before, so there was keen interest in both tracking its flight path and intercepting the warhead as a “test” of our fledgling system.

I finally got through all the security and entered into the conference room, ready to go through my super-duper power point slide show that I had to vet all the way up to the 4-star at STRATCOM. I was ready. At the table there were about 10 big-wigs. I was in the peanut gallery along with roughly 20 other folks. At the table:

1) VADM David Frost (retired)
2) RADM Kathleen Paige
3) Former CIA Director James Woolsey

Sadly, I forget all the other names, as well as peanut gallery attendees, but to my defense it WAS 15 years ago. Anyways…

Someone from MDA did a presentation (I knew this person as we worked closely in the development of the MUA). It was good but boring AF. Then it was my turn. I went through my slides to an emotionless table. I thought I was falling on my sword! Finally, VADM Frost asked me point-blank:

Q: Do you think we can intercept the TD-2?
A: I think if we shot a salvo of ground-based interceptors we’d have a 75% chance of success.

I was done and sat down. What happened next was the glimpse behind the curtain. The discussion centered around the potential embarrassment if we missed, the potential for an actual re-entry vehicle having a payload (nuke, chem, bio), potential targets in Hawaii and Seattle; It was fascinating. But then Mr. Woolsey said the following:

“What if we sent a SOF (special forces) team in, shot a couple rounds between the 1st and 2nd stages of the stacked missile? I figure it’d have a separation failure around 45 seconds into launch.”

There was much mumbling at the table, some spirited arguing and then the meeting ended. I was ushered out to catch my flight back home.

Fast-forward about 6 weeks. The 4th of July weekend was upon us, and I was at my dad’s cabin. On July 5th the missile launched! …and failed 42 seconds into flight, stage separation failure!

How cool is that?

Superb. Seriously.

The Dog-Headed Tribe of Greek Legend

NightTerrors
Feb 1, 2018

The dog-headed tribe of Greek legend is also chronicled in the histories of many other nations. Also known as the Cynocephali, or Cynocephaly, evidence of this race of dog headed men is attested by the accounts of explorers, the artwork of cartographers, and multiple historians. Who were the dog men? Where could they be found? How did they vanish from the face of the earth, and what are the odds that members of this tribe, have survived until the present day?

In Egypt, the most monolithic civilization of old, three gods were represented as a human being, with the head of dog… Duamutef and Wepwawet, two gods of war, and Anubis, ruler of the dead. Was the Egyptian artwork depicting members of a race, which at one time co-existed with man?

Reports of this race begin in Greece. The Greek physician Ctesias, in a geographical treatise, wrote that in the mountains of India, there live men with dog heads, known as the Cynocephali, whose territory extends as far as the river Indus. They can understand language, but they have no ability to speak. They communicate with eachother by barking like dogs. Their population numbers over one hundred thousand. The Cynocephali produced amber and purple dye, large quantities of which they presented as annual tribute to the king of India. They did not live in houses. They lived in caves under the earth.

Eight centuries earlier, according to oral history, the Argonauts of Greece waged battle against the half dog tribe, at a place which is located in modern day Serbia. Their location in this area is independently confirmed by Serbian oral tradition, which speaks of the creature Psoglav, having a human body and a canine’s head, with teeth of iron. Psoglavs were said to live in a dark land with many gemstones, but no sun. This confirms they lived in caves.

The most famous of the dog men is Saint Christopher, who appears in several Christian texts, and many examples of religious art. Prior to his conversion, Christopher was said to have been a savage and ferocious soldier, captured in battle on the eastern coast of Libya. He was a large man with the head of a hound, from a tribe of warriors. After meeting Jesus, he repented and was baptized, eventually receiving sainthood, and occasionally granted the honor of being painted with a human face, in later iconic art.

A Chinese historian, Li Yanshou of the Tang dynasty, mentions a dog kingdom… and during the Liang Dynasty of China, the Buddhist missionary Huisheng describes an island of dog-headed men, to the east of Fusang, a nation he visited himself, which has since been identified as Japan.

In one story of King Arthur, his men are caught in a skirmish with dog headed warriors in the mountains of Edinburgh. Hundreds of them fall under the sword of the English knight Bedivere.

The famous explorer Marco Polo wrote of his journey to the Andaman Islands, off the coast of India. He recounts his meeting with barbarian men with heads like hounds, and he also identified the breed as Mastiff. They grew their own spices, which they were willing to trade. They displayed a primitive form of organized religion, and worshipped oxen. From their necks hung religious charms, hammered from pieces of silver and gold.

We can guess what happened to this fierce but minority race. As the empires of men expanded, the half dogs were exterminated. The evidence suggests they were a proud and aggressive tribe, which would have much preferred to die in battle, rather than be assimilated into human culture. However if self-destructive humankind reliquishes its claim to rule the earth, the Cynocephali may once more arise from their caves.

THANK YOU,
BILL MADON

Nice presentation, chock full of good information.

I do not think that the creatures contained herein are our currently reported dogmen, mainly because these fellows are all depicted as having a human body.

The dogmen of our time do not have a human body, as their hind legs are hocked, like those of a canine. So they are obviously two distinct animals.

I find both exciting.

Oh, if only there were time machines.
