Today’s Top Tweet – Woman claims ETs spliced her genes

Ms Kapiteli said her mother’s eggs had been harvested while she was sleeping, and fused with those of an alien – leaving Ms Kapiteli’s genes spliced with extraterrestrial DNA.

Call me a nut if that makes you feel better, but I think it’s entirely possible that some sensitive persons might intuitively connect with ETs. There’s just so many planets out there. To assume that Earth is the only place where intelligent life exists is, well, just that. An assumption.

Problem is, we think we’re smart with our 4K TVs, smartphones and information wars. But compared to what could be out there, our intelligence is probably quite limited. So even if some of us were to intuitively connect with other, ET minds, chances are we’d drastically misinterpret the whole event. That’s why I tend to doubt most ET hunters who anthropomorphize their understanding of ETs. The drawings, canned photos, etc. always seem to reflect nothing more than imaginative extrapolations of current tech and trends in artistic design. Same thing with sci-fi movies. Watch an old 70s sci-fi film or TV show and what do we see? We see the 1970s. Not much more.

Now, I am not saying this woman is not part ET. I cannot know. But my suspicion is that she’s had some unconventional experiences which she’s interpreted a certain way, a way that conforms to current understandings of how things work. It is much harder to imagine someone simply piercing through space-time, without any high tech intervention, and connecting with an ET light years away. But honestly, I think that could happen. A kind of psychic, “wormhole” connection. Not a genetic splicing or chip implant, as others seem to believe.

However, our culture generally does not believe in psychic phenomena or aliens. And we cannot create or control bona fide wormholes on demand. So a genetic meddling or microchip implant theory makes more “sense” to most UFO and ET enthusiasts. It might also be an easier sell for hucksters.

Mind you, not all folks interested in ETs and UFOs succumb to heavy-handed anthropomorphism. There are some who see it as pure psi. And perhaps both scenarios are true. For all we know little gray/green men and women with big, black eyes are in close proximity. They could be hiding in a pocket of space-time and also forging psychic connections with sensitive persons. And yes, it is conceivable that they could be intrusively engineering these things.

Point is, we just don’t know. So I ask, why doesn’t Lea Kapiteli get a DNA test and settle the matter? Even if the results were negative, she still might be in touch with an intelligence beyond herself. Just not the way she thinks.

Updated – Article on “Remote Viewing”

Just updated my entry at earthpages.ca about the controversial idea of Remote Viewing. Perhaps not a literary masterpiece, I do think my entry is more balanced than the Wikipedia entry. The Wikipedia entry reads like an airplane repair manual or something. But those sympathetic to psi say that the “subtle science” of these alleged phenomena doesn’t work that way. So who knows.

Surprisingly good article about corruption

English: Detail from Corrupt Legislation. Mura...

I tweeted this article today and thought it worthy of another snip.

Sorry UFO conspiracy theorists… this one doesn’t wash

IMG_0452

Image captured on  July 14… and guess what..? transmission not working again.

Before we paid extra dollars to get unlimited internet bandwidth (telecommunications prices are unduly expensive in Canada) I watched the ISS live feed* often. There’s a forum there where you can talk to others watching the world spin, which can be a fun and educational way to pass the time. A cheap trip to space too, if you have half an imagination!

Ironically, I watch the feed less now that we have unlimited internet. But I still have been checking it out in short bursts over the past 5 weeks. And it seems that the feed’s reliability has suffered dramatically—UFO or not.

So, to those conspiracy theorists who say that the ISS feed was intentionally cut because of a UFO sighting: I think that’s rubbish. Most of the time it seems that the astronauts on board the ISS are so busy that they haven’t a clue if the feed is working or not. And they regularly cut transmission if they need to route power for something going on within the ISS. Remember, they don’t have a wall outlet for practically limitless power, like we do.

Okay, but did NASA (on Earth) cut the feed? Always possible but again, as I say, over the past 5 weeks the feed hasn’t been working most of the times that I’ve visited. And it’s not due to a spotty internet connection because we’re now using a fast and reliable provider. So those who say NASA cut the feed should look at the statistics. If 50% of the time the thing’s not working, it’s spurious to say that another outage (when there happens to be a UFO in sight) was intentional.

The conspiracy theorists also seem to assume that rows of individuals at the NASA control center are keenly watching the ISS feed, like in the old Apollo days. But whenever I’ve seen a shot of the NASA control room on Earth, it looks like there’s a person, maybe two, sort of passing the time in a largely abandoned, half darkened room, maybe eating some potato chips… hardly sitting there just waiting to hit the CUT button for any UFO footage.— MC

Panama Papers whistleblower speaks out

ETs – We are not alone… or are we?

I think the biggest problem with stories like this is that they assume ET life would be like ours… both in terms of (1) chemical makeup / physical needs and (2) means of communicating.

Many psychics, introverts and mystics claim to be in contact with ETs. The biggest problem with THAT idea is that we can’t really confirm nor deny their claims. They are probably sensing something. But is it their imagination? Or might they be deceived by unfriendly spiritual powers (along the lines of the Christian notion of the discernment of spirits)?

The more I listen to popular talk shows about ETs, the more some sound like cheesy fronts or covers to me. Or maybe just sheer entertainment hucksterism. I can’t be sure, of course, but it seems like the same old types of somewhat clever/somewhat goofy characters keep reappearing on these broadcasts and podcasts, telling the same kind of kooky stories: Long-winded tales about cattle mutilations, bright overhead lights on the highway, etc.

I think ETs could exist. But not necessarily in the anthropomorphic way they’re often portrayed.

Do “super spies” have parapsychological abilities?

I don’t think there’s necessarily a conspiracy to withhold info about spies who might have psi. That just seems too easy. When you think about it, if spies did have psi abilities, the canniest among them probably wouldn’t talk about it. They’d be lone wolves, reading minds and gathering info at a distance. And in a world where espionage is often internally divided, that would be their secret weapon to stay on top of the heap.

Let’s just hope that if psi spies do exist, they’re on the right side.
