Latest UFO News Complemented by Historic Astronaut Alien Accounts

In the current social media ‘fake news’ age the truth is ever harder to distinguish, and that’s why I think my parodymeter is a useful tool. I bet Silicon Valley wish they’d thought of it first; which scores very highly on the parodymeter. Elon Musk was too busy building electric cars and space rockets, and missed out on the techno invention of the century; which scores even higher on the parodymeter!!

Los Angeles U.F.O.

Funnily enough, a couple of my main topics from last year were linked in December, when a U.F.O. with a bright massive glowing tail was seen by many residents of L.A. and then explained as a rocket launch by Elon Musk’s SpaceX company.

I think that’s a credible account of what was seen, although I’d have thought there would have been more reporting of it prior to the event, both so people could watch, and to warn those driving etc; as there were reported to have been crashes caused by distracted drivers.

My U.F.O. Research is as a PhD Graduate

Although my third of a trilogy book had an X-Files theme it was more about comedy wordplay than spaceships and aliens. I don’t sensationalise U.F.O.s, and treat them with my PhD research trained scrutiny. I usually put strange shapes on other planets down to geology, and know there’s a lot of space junk out there now, but when astronauts and pilots report U.F.O.s I take notice.

I had largely lost interest in U.F.O.s when I wrote XaW Files, but the new Quest series this year with all the latest footage complemented by historic cases has reignited it. Of course, people with the Discovery channel might have been seeing this much more, with many series such as Ancient Aliens on the channel. 

Some U.F.O. theorists claim NASA hasn’t returned to the moon because there were alien spaceships there, supported by some astronaut testimony, such as Apollo 11’s Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin and Apollo 14’s Edgar Mitchell. I guess like with a lot of theories, time will answer that. If we do go back as apparently planned, and provide credible film footage, then it will disprove that theory.

I am most interested in U.F.O.s that travel at speeds and with movements beyond what humanity has currently revealed; travelling great sky distances in an instant, seeming to disappear and without leaving signs of movement; with a long history of such sightings going back to at least the 1940s, and some recently filmed. Footage released by the Peruvian air force and Chilean navy were two of the most recent encounters with crafts displaying extraordinary manoeuvrability. Their governments apparently have a more open policy about U.F.O.s than the U.K. and U.S.A.

I didn’t know the area I grew up in is a U.F.O. hotspot until seeing some books on Amazon about it a couple of years ago. I once saw a light in the sky on the western horizon, which looked like a star until moving fast, travelling north with erratic disappearing and appearing movements around that time. That was the height of my UFO experience, and the closest I’ve ever been; although I have had bouts of sleep paralysis, which some think explain many close encounters.

If there are U.F.O.s they seem to be quite friendly, as they are quite obviously more advanced if they can ‘study’ us without us knowing much about them; although there have been some reports of life being harmed. We of course harm other life on Earth, but the majority of us try to preserve what we can.

Maybe they are like us with other animals on Earth, studying and preserving us as we do with other life; and if there have been alien crashes, such as reported in Roswell in 1947, then it’s like one of our planes crashing into the sea, or a wildlife park. Maybe we to them are like fish seeing scuba divers or submarines passing their locality in the ocean, or undiscovered tribes seeing our planes flying over them.

For the most part we can just watch and wonder, but sometimes their higher technology will fail them, and they’ll crash into our world. That’s just a little theory though, and I keep an open mind.

I could write that I took my Nazca Lines photos from a UFO in 1994, but in reality it was just from the tower there, and I didn’t even take a flight over them. I was very interested though, but put them down to human construction rather than alien landing sites, as claimed in a best-selling book by von Daniken.

Lake Titicaca Sunset Photos

Especially for those missing the POP (PinkyOrangePurple) times in old-fashioned greenygrey Blighty weather; with the traditional sky evidence that the greenygrey had nothing to do with causing the weather it depicted, as its Yellow rebranding has not created sunnier weather; and also for everybody else, here’s one of my favourite sunset photos from my travels, taken at Lake Titicaca on the Peruvian – Bolivian border in 1994:

Lake Titicaca is arguably the highest navigable lake in the world and biggest in South America. When I was there it looked green in some parts during daylight, due to algae.

The lake looked clear and ‘normal’ in other parts:

Some people (Uros) live on islands made from totora reeds. They also make boats from the reeds (that’s not a reed boat in this photo!):

Enlightened Writer Shares Freethinking Genius Sparks – Ancient Sun Civilisations, Scientific Study and Modern Culture

In yesterday’s spontaneous prose stream of consciousness blog I thought little of adding that the i of Blighty isn’t in the symbiotic middle, as the Y of greenYgrey isn’t, in contrast to the precision aimed for by ancient cultures such as the sun-worshipping ones in modern Egypt and Peru that had similar thoughts and architecture despite being on different sides of the Atlantic and not having any known contact with each other.

Rider on the POP (PinkyOrangePurple – paraphrasing Doors’ Riders of the Storm) Horizon

My imprecision could be symbolic of my ADHD mind, and I would have been happy to just write that before, but now I think the double-negatives will take it the wrong way, or at least spin it negatively: that my imprecision is not an easygoing self-parody joke, or something I noticed afterwards, it’s something I tried to do but failed, proof of my ineptitude and stupidity; that I shouldn’t have been made a Phd etc; an example of white/male privilege to the non-whites/non-males, positive discrimination to the higher classes, or a Jewish conspiracy to the far-right (who don’t know that Judaism is a form of monotheism – what I’ve been criticising the most in my creative writing, because I think it causes a lot of conflicts and wars; although the ‘peaceniks’ who fight for Islam won’t believe me!).

At 8.10am the above pales into insignificance, for there is a peautiful (new word meant) POP horizon, with grey cloud made purple providing the base, below white cloud made pinky-orange. Above that, the sky is big sky blue, apart from a few small clouds made POP.

Y Spark of Grandmaster Genius (GG reminding my of the original Greenygrey)

After writing yesterday’s blog post I went for a run, and was delighted to see some sun in a mostly cloudy sky. After lunch I watched The Grandmaster for the second time, realising towards the end of the first time that I hadn’t taken it in enough.

Doing the work for the double-negatives, as I’ve often done before, to make our ‘battle of wills’ (The Grandmaster inspiration) more even, they will probably make out that it’s because it’s a Weinstein movie (seeing it was his company’s movie as well as Southpaw made me realise they’ve made some great movies, not really knowing of him until the scandal) or that I’m just watching it for the fighting/action.

In fact, I was more interested in the relationships and philosophy of Gong Er (played beautifully by Ziyi Zhang with the help of typically Chinese (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon etc, also Ziyi Zhang I just noticed!) evocative filmography – on a par with the Nordic blonde and English rose types for my personal taste).

During the movie; one of the reasons I didn’t take the subtitled film in enough the first time is that I daydream like this; I suddenly thought that after yesterday writing in this blog that Blighty isn’t precisely in the middle of Egypt and Peru like the symbiosis those cultures aimed for in their architecture, that Iceland was much more in the middle of them than Britain, and that is of course where I ended the greenYgrey story, directed by the muse (maybe my mistYmuse, but I can’t remember off-hand if it was written between the 21sts of November and March).

Moreover, I’d started focusing on the I of Blighty, following a stream of consciousness from the I of me, and I is of course the capital letter of Iceland! I think that’s what made me think of Iceland during the movie – first of all thinking about the I.

Y-I North-East Comedy Spark

The above happened at about 3.30pm, and I thought that would be it for the day, and my ruminations on the blog. However, at about 8.45pm, while watching The Secrets of Quantum Physics on the BBC for the second time I suddenly thought that the Y-I focus of the blog post sounded like the ‘why-aye’ used to enthusiastically say yes in the north-east.

I think I learnt the phrase most from The Likely Lads, only finding out recently after he’d passed away, that one of them, Rodney Bewes, was a Yorkshireman.

Moreover, the subject of the documentary, how light photons are a law unto themselves, beyond scientific control, proving Nils Bohr right above Albert Einstein, made me wonder if my post-blog thoughts had been sparked by my time in the sun on my lunch-time run: fresh enlightenment to refresh the foundation.

Had the new light particles stirred the old up, sparking new life, beyond my control or planning, sending new neural connections down into my conscious mind, like the snow scenes in The Grandmaster, where Gong Er learnt from her father by observing and learning.

I’d recently commented on an article about how biophotons work when we’re sleeping, but still didn’t know exactly what they are until watching the documentary again last night. I think there’s quite a lot available on YouTube if you can’t watch it on the BBC (only UK).

 

South American Native People Photos

The Americas have had their problems, and rivalries, same as elsewhere in the human world. The native people have suffered the most, but are still surviving, and as I wrote previously, Evo Morales has become President of Bolivia since I visited. Here’s some photos of the native people in South America:

I think this one was taken on the way to the Colca Canyon to see the condors near Arequipa in Peru:

Americas Bird Photos

Ben Fogle recently joked about watching birdlife with a double meaning of women on his programme New Lives in the Wild, so it must be okay, but I have no need to do it in this blog post, as it just features birds of the flying kind.

These photos were taken in the Santa Rosa park in Costa Rica’s north-west. I think I just found out twenty-three years later it’s a white-throated magpie jay, and a cover star of the park’s speciality birds. The name reminds me that I also saw beautiful blue jays and redolent red cardinals in North America.

These were taken in Peru’s Colca Canyon, near Arequipa, below Lima. I stayed in a village near the canyon the night before, as the condors emerge early, getting a memorable view of the night sky in all its glory from the Andean mountains with little light pollution; the village didn’t have electricity, just using candles and torches for light. I saw this bird of prey first and thought it might be a condor:

But when the condor arrived, it was so much bigger, I knew it was the real thing:

These photos were taken in the Brazilian Pantanal wetlands. The first photo features parrots, and I think the second does too.

Australia and Peru Qualify for World Cup 2018

After recent blog posts here featured photos from my travels to Australia and Peru, they became the last two qualifiers for World Cup 2018 this week. It is Peru’s first qualification since 1982. Here’s some more photos from Oz and Paddington’s home:

Peru, 1994 Huaraz Lake in Andes Mountains

I stopped in Huaraz, Peru on the way down from the Ecuador border to Lima, and hiked to a nearby lake, after getting a bus to near it as I remember it:

Machu Picchu Trek Peru Photos

I went on an organised trek to Machu Picchu in Peru from Cusco in 1994, with visiting the ancient Inca capital high in the Andes top of my bucket list. Here’s some photos:
