Donovan Concert: A Shared Experience — Maybe?

 

donovan69.jpg

In 2011, I wrote the following piece for my Trickster’s Realm column at Tim Binnall’s site (Binnall of America.)  Donovan in Concert at the Hollywood Bowl . . . Maybe.  

The other day — I don’t remember what it was that had me bring it up — but I mentioned this column to my spouse, Jim. Jim told me he didn’t know about the article: “You never mentioned that,” he said. (We usually read each other our stuff.) I was surprised, but anyway, he read the item. Afterwards he said: “That is very strange.” Pause. “Weirder still, I was at that concert.”

!

Married over forty years, and I never knew that!

Another weird synchronicity, possibly, remotely, related to UFO type events. Jim and I had discovered years ago that we share many anomalous events, going back to childhood. All of them connected, in some way, to UFOs.

MUFON’S Inner Circle

Kevin Randle has a piece at his blog on MUFON’s Inner Circle: A Different Perspective: MUFON, Racism and Dodging the Questions.

Another huge WTF moment in the continuing sleazy saga that is MUFON these days.

For some time, MUFON, as an institution, been very suspect. MUFON began (one assumes) with good intentions on bringing a respectable and acceptable, light regarding UFOs to the masses. Excluding the more embarrassing witness narratives of course.

Then the strange relationship with cagey and coy millionaire Bigelow, John Ventre’s racism, and now, the Inner Circle, where, for five thousand dollars, you can join. Members include JZ Knight. Yes, that JZ Knight, keeper of the entity known as Ramtha.

Oy.

Kevin Randle has written a good piece and thanks to him for putting this out there.

 

Which is Worse?

I can’t take any single ufo experience out of context and hold it up to self-reflection, analysis, exploration, and not think it’s unrelated to all my other similar experiences. That’d be silly.

Yet I do. Not on purpose; I just get lost sometimes. For example, my orange orb sighting. What I call my “anchor” sighting. Even though the orange orb sighting was not the first, or the last, it was the one that threw me down the rabbit hole. Handed me the blue pills and the red pills.

So when thinking of the orange orb, I consider many possibilities. Plasma being one of them. Okay, let’s take plasma. Big ball of electrical naturally occurring terrestrial stuff. So far, simple. Except…

This orange ball of lit-from-within stuff was intelligent. Sentient. Followed me. Seemed to be waiting for me. Played with me. Seemingly, was the cause of, or related to the cause of, missing time, and classic ufo dreams. (Paralyzed, bright white beam of light, unseen aliens…)

Still, let’s suppose the orange orb was not an alien other, but a natural earth based thing. That maybe caused me to think such things. Or, was indeed the cause of such things. Some type of highly intelligent, aware “thing” right here on earth that for whatever reason, connected with me that night.

Which is a worse situation? An alien from outer space, another planet, or, something right here existing next to us? Something capable of manipulating us? That can cause a sense of missing time, and more.

I am sure there are things like that afoot. No doubt about that — there are non-human, intelligent entities that have nothing to do with outer space right here, messing with us, interacting with us.

Whether or not the orange orb belongs in that category, or the aliens from space category, I’m not quite sure. But I also am convinced that aliens exist as well; that, and the afore mentioned context. All those other ufo encounters, going back to childhood. So there is a definite there there. I can’t hold up the orange orb experience and disconnect if from the other ones.  That doesn’t prove anything ET-ish of course.

So, which is worse, if “worse” is the right word? Aliens from outer space, or some earth bound energy? I’m not sure. Just asking.

 

“As Ancient Astronaut Theorists Believe… “

Well, as an “ancient astronaut theorist” fan, I take exception.

The History channel’s Ancient Aliens program loves to invoke variations of the following:

“As Ancient Alien theorists believe…” as if all of us who accept that aliens from literal eons ago planted us here, or, messed with us, or, … well, there are endless possibilities. The point is, yes, aliens, as well as ultra-terrestrials and  — who knows what all non-human else —  had their way with us. This belief does not mean that I accept every answer/theory/opinion/belief put forth by the pundits on Ancient Aliens.

Some of those pundits are thoughtful, and simply offering up ideas and speculations. Others are intoning theories as facts. And, one of my personal pet peeves in all aspects of my life — regardless of the hat I may be wearing at the time —  being included in something I had no say in. As in, for example, work. “Well, we agree that staff should, from now on…”  Excuse me, “we?”  I don’t recall being asked, and I certainly don’t fucking agree. Passive aggressive manipulative tactic, that.

So, while I do believe the aliens have been around, and in fact, responsible, for the us that is now us, I also don’t believe every damn theory that comes along. And while aliens, as in from outer space, literal ETs, there are also entities about and afoot that are from right here. Within earth, parallel to us, co-existing in some sort of near-by dimension, and outer space has nothing to do with it. The two (or three or eleventh-hundred) exist at the same time, all playing their particular game.

 

Nick Redfern on C2C Tonight (And a Bit About Truth)

Nick Redfern, who’s latest book, The Roswell UFO Conspiracy, is causing much ado, will be a guest tonight on Coast to Coast.

Speaking of Nick’s new book — which I haven’t read yet, but plan to of course — it’s funny, in a typical UFO Land kind of way, how much controversy his book has caused. (The Roswell UFO Conspiracy is a sequel to Body Snatchers in the Desert.)
I have no idea what happened at Roswell, and aliens crashing their spaceships on a ranch seems possible. So do heinous acts by governments. The first, true folklore. (Which does not mean it isn’t also true.) But it’s a classic narrative of aliens in the desert, and has become a part of popular culture. Everyone knows what you mean when you cite Roswell, regardless of acceptance of such things as aliens from space. The latter, well, that’s more troublesome. People, including many UFO researchers, don’t want to go there. They don’t want to get deep into dark conspiracies. I mean, good god, no one wants to even hint they’re an Alex Jones. Also, many a UFO researcher is, bewilderingly, politically conservative, and actually trusts the government.
The truth is the truth, be it aliens or government (ours, some other, …), or private technologies as in global illuminati cabal types. Whatever the answer to Roswell, it is important we keep ourselves open, and be willing to really see the truth when, and if, it arrives.

Redfern himself writes about reactions to his book at Mysterious Universe: When Ufologists Turn on Ufologists.
I don’t know if Redfern’s book is close to any truth or not. But at least he’s offering us something new and we need to be willing to adjust the ways we consider what happened at Roswell.

Missing UFO Letter in Local Paper?

Our local paper, the Eugene-Springfield Register Guard, published a pro-UFO letter this morning. Very good letter, from a Mr. Robert Bolman.  I go online to find the letter to link to it; the Register Guard site does not have it. Maybe you can find it.

The letter is titled Easy explanation: UFOs are real and in it, Mr. Bolman writes that the paper’s recent article on the Kenneth Arnold sighting was “too little, too late, for the biggest, most important news story ever in human history.” Best of all, Bolman writes:

No doubt, many readers are rolling their eyes … not because it lacks merit, but because blistering, career-destroying ridicule has been a major ploy used to keep the extraterrestrial presence on Earth secret for the 70 years since Kenneth Arnold saw those nine saucer-shaped craft.  (Bolman, Register Guard, July 3 2017)

One more thing: I don’t know if this is the same Robert Bolman who is a local educator, but if he is, right on Mr. Bolman!
