The Legend of Boggy Creek

The Legend of Boggy Creek is, hands down, the greatest Bigfoot movie ever made. (Yes, I am including The Geek, that 1970s bit of Bigfoot pornography, when I make this assessment.) Its mixture of documentary-style story-telling, location shots in the swamps of Arkansas, and Arkansans re-enacting their encounters with the creature somehow manages to overcome the cheap gorilla suit and cheesy songs about the creature's longing for love. A drive-in movie hit when it was released, it is now a cult...

Tesla Technology

Even with the power of shapes and multi-wave oscillation, the 2007 Extraordinary Technology Conference is a bit of a downer. On the day that the conference began, the Salt Lake City Weekly ran a cover story that is near to the heart of many of the participants here. The demonstrations continue and the lectures remain on topic, but there is an undercurrent of discussion. I overhear it in the hallways and catch hints of it from the presenters. The newspaper story is entitled 'Fuel Injected...

Orgone Energy

Psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich is an important figure in the story of alternative technology. This student of Freud claimed to have discovered orgone energy - what Charles R. Kelley, in the September 1962 issue of The Creative Process, calls 'the creative force in nature.' Reich first discovered orgone within the human body and claimed that his patients received improved mental and physical health by sitting inside devices that he called 'orgone accumulators.' (The U.S. government was less than...

Mount Shasta

In addition to Scott-Elliot, Frederick S. Oliver also contributed to the developing theosophical picture of life in ancient Atlantis. Oliver claimed to have channeled the text of the manuscript for his book A Dweller on Two Planets through a process of automatic writing. A Dweller on Two Planets was published posthumously in 1905 by Oliver's mother. The book purports to be the story of Phylos the Thibetan. According to Oliver's preface, what he calls the 'Amanuensis' Preface,' Oliver received...

The Lost Diary of Admiral Byrd

Raymond Bernard's The Hollow Earth (1964) covered much of the same territory that had already been staked out by Reed and Gardner, including chapters devoted to each of their books. His work did more than simply rework those earlier texts, however, for Bernard's book makes some important contributions of its own. Bernard would link the hollow earth theory with unidentified flying objects and claim that flying saucers were not from outer space but from the earth's core he would introduce claims...

The Patterson Gimlin Film

In addition to folk tales, eyewitness accounts, and tracks, the other critical piece of evidence cited in defense of the existence of North American bipedal hominids is photography. Though many photographs and filmed images have been produced, the image usually granted the highest level of credibility is the Patterson-Gimlin footage from 1967. The well-known footage of a female Sasquatch walking along a dry creek bed while casting a glance over her right shoulder has been subjected to various...

The Locals

Thom Powell, in his book The Locals A Contemporary Investigation of the Bigfoot Sasquatch Phenomenon, provides accounts of other individuals and families who have claimed to have had personal encounters with Bigfoot over extended periods of time. Indeed, Powell believes that there are multiple instances on record that show that the Bigfoot creatures may become habituated and learn to interact with humans. He believes that these examples of habituation describe the best method of contacting and...

Tesla in Sfacei

Nikola Tesla Anti Gravity Plans

In addition to death rays, mind- and weather-control technology, and free-energy devices, it is also believed by some that Tesla discovered a method to nullify or reverse the effects of gravity, allowing for the possibility of air and space travel. William Lyne, for example, in his 27. A table-top model of the OTC X-1. 27. A table-top model of the OTC X-1. book Occult Ether Physics Tesla's Hidden Space Propulsion System and the Conspiracy to Conceal It, not only claims that Tesla discovered an...

The Abominable Snowman

The North American continent was not the only source for hairy hominid stories in the early twentieth century. Many of the most important accounts from the period came from the Himalayan Mountains. Ivan Sanderson's retelling of the Himalayan accounts from 1920 is usually regarded as the classic version. He wrote In that year an incident occurred that was impressive enough but which might have been either wholly or temporarily buried had it not been for a concatenation of almost piffling...

Pyramid Power

On October 8, 1973, Time magazine reported on the growing influence of 'pyramid power' among both celebrities and common folk. It was reported that Gloria Swanson slept with a miniature pyramid under her bed, claiming that it made every cell in her body tingle. Actor James Coburn claimed to meditate regularly inside a pyramid-shaped tent and to place his cat and kittens on a bed placed over several tiny pyramids, theorizing that the kittens might grow up in some unique way because of the power...

The Spirit of Sasquatch

I am still looking for Bigfoot, though I have fled Texas to do so, riding through the bottom lands of southern Arkansas in search of the small community of Fouke and the legendary monster of Boggy Creek. For me this is a trip back in time, back to 1972 and the Hatfield Roller Rink and Drive-In Theater where I first watched The Legend of Boggy Creek. The low-budget film purported to be a true account of events that had taken place around Fouke, Arkansas, events involving a large, three-toed,...

Vril And Its Uses

Preceding Jules Verne's subterranean novel by just a few years, Edward Bulwer-Lytton's Vril The Power of the Coming Race tells the story of the narrator's descent through a mine shaft into the cavern home of the Vril-ya, a race of humans who fled from floods on the earth's surface in ancient times, lost their way, and established a civilization in underground caverns. This account places the subterranean civilization in caverns beneath the earth's surface rather than in the earth's hollow...

The Nikola Tesla Story

If there is anyone more influential than Reich in the field of alternative technology, it is certainly Nikola Tesla, famed inventor and champion of alternating current. Unlike Reich, Tesla's influence extends beyond the importance of any particular invention or discovery, like Reich's orgone. Tesla's influence is closer to a cult of personality. For example, in 1959 Margaret Storm released Return of the Dove, a self-published volume printed in green ink. In this book Storm claimed that Nikola...

Psychic Sasquatch

Did you know that Sasquatch can read, write, shape-shift, voice project, create infrasound that affects the environment, de-materialize at will or cause you to have an experience of lost time so you think they de-materialized, travel 300 miles a day on foot, live in well-lighted underground facilities, contact and live with Star People, tell us about our past and our future, have lived here longer than the human race www.joanocean.com According to Joan Ocean, this is all true. Bigfoot are much...

Finding the Hollow Earth

In addition to employing vril power, it is also possible for us to make contact with, and perhaps meet, the people from the center of the earth. Diane Robbins, in her book Messages from the Hollow Earth, describes how she came to channel messages from the subterranean world. Robbins claims that she was first led to make contact with the subterranean races after learning about a woman named Sharula, who was born in Telos, a subterranean city located under Mount Shasta. Sharula, now a resident of...

Ape Canyon

1924 Ape Canyon

Originally reported in 1924, Fred Beck's story of an attack by ape-creatures upon a cabin on Washington's Mount St. Helens became news again following the renewed interest in Sasquatch stories in the 1950s. The 1924 story, which caused quite a stir in regional newspapers at the time, told of how Beck and a group of prospectors had been attacked while in their cabin. The Portland, Oregon Oregonian of July 13, 1924 first broke the story Fight With Big Apes Reported By Miners Fabled Beasts Are...

The Bicfoot Hunter

The 'Searching for Bigfoot' equipment trailer 'Here Come's sic the Bigfoot Hunter ' As I arrive at my hotel room cost included in the online ticket purchased from parapalooza.com that allows me to participate in this Sasquatch safari , I notice two men hovering around my door. I am tired from my flight and the drive up from Dallas and am hoping to take a short nap before the action is scheduled to start later in the evening, but these guys seem to have a different idea. 'Come on - we need to...

Forest Friends

Janice Carter Coy is the translator of Bigfoot speak www.bigfoot-referenceguide.com . She claims to have developed her ability to understand the creatures through what she describes as a lifetime spent among them. Now an adult, Carter Coy first encountered a Bigfoot when she was 7 years old. Playing on her grandfather's farm in rural Tennessee, she literally ran into one of the creatures. Frozen in fear, Janice was rescued by her grandfather who rushed to her side and proceeded to stare the...

Wendigo Skinwalkers and Man Wolves

In Algernon Blackwood's story The Wendigo, originally published in 1910, a pair of hunters encounter a creature in the Canadian woods that they had hoped was only a legend. Blackwood's Wendigo is a mystical creature, representing the lure of the wilderness. Its voice resembles the sounds of the wild - falling water, wind, the call of birds and beasts. Grasping its victim, the Wendigo runs at such speed that the poor victim's eyes bleed and his feet burn. It can take great leaps or run along the...

The Shaver Mystery

The story of the subterranean passage at Blowing Cave is a story that originated in the pages of Shavertron magazine, published in an off-again on-again manner by Richard Toronto. Shavertron bills itself as 'Your Only Source of Post-Deluge Shaverania,' and, I must say, it lives 20. A map of the Hollow Earth, with great detail, including the path of Admiral Byrd's flight to the inner world, a saucer on its way to Venus, and the caverns of the hideous Dero. 20.

Mothman

Chupacabras was not the first mysterious creature to thrive both on land and in the sky. In 1966 Point Pleasant, West Virginia became the center of a series of sightings immortalized by John Keel in his best-selling account The Mothman Prophecies later made into a movie . The sightings began in November with the report of an 18-year-old girl, Connie Carpenter, who reported that, while driving past a deserted golf course at around 10 30 a.m., she observed a huge gray creature, shaped liked a man...

John Titor

A standard objection to the reality of time travel is the argument that if time travel is possible then it will surely be perfected at some point in the future. If this is the case, people from the future would certainly want to travel back in time, and not just to the future as Bielek did. In other words, if time travel is possible then we should see evidence of time travelers visiting our time and past periods. Since we don't have any evidence of that, it stands to reason that time travel...
