Photos of "garden fairies" taken by two teenage girls in Cottingley, England in 1917 aroused a great deal of curiosity. While the photos were largely discredited, they were championed by such illustrious figures as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in their day. Click here to view images.
This past weekend I beamed down to the 5th Annual Bay Area UFO Expo, which featured a bounty of interesting presenters. One of whom, was the man called "the most controversial speaker in the world," David Icke. I sat down with Icke for a 90-minute interview which will be featured in the December issue of After Dark. The distinguished Robert O. Dean, looking dapper with his grey ponytail and walking cane was the recipient of the Expo's 2003 Maverick Award. I caught his stirring talk that provided answers as to who the extraterrestrial presence is and why they are here. According to Dean, there are at least four ET species interacting with Earth, and at least one of them is a "Type 2" civilization (capable of using the energy of an entire solar system). Dean said that ETs are conducting mining operations on such places as our Moon and the rings of Jupiter, and that he has photos that demonstrate this. Further, our planet is seen as an abundant "zoological garden" to them, open for g

The Rasping Demon By Jerry About 14 years ago, I still lived at home. One night my brother, who was about 15, was in my room and we were playing a game of Nerf basketball on a chilly March night. Everyone else in the family was gone for the evening. My brother and I were the only ones home. We received a phone call-- it was my brother's friend, Junior. They began conversing about a game of Dungeons & Dragons that they had been playing, and began talking about a demonic spirit that they had fought in the game with their characters. Around that time they noticed a sound on the phone. They both began talking about the weird raspy noise that would come and go. I asked my brother to put the phone on speaker so I could hear it. He did, and to me it sounded like a person making a hard raspy out-breath. It was a haaaaaaaaaah type sound. I asked Junior if anyone was at home at his house and he swore that he was alone. I spoke to directly to the sound and told it to do it once for yes

Tonight's guest, Phillip Krapf will be discussing his encounters with the "Verdant" ETs. In tandem, we present "Noo Noo," by the artist Jenaro Pagan (realmsofnowhere). Pagan based the drawing on an image he'd seen of an "ancient astronaut" in an Egyptian mural. Click here to view larger.
Tonight's guest Debbie Ford offers a transformative workshop called The Shadow Process, which seeks to put her clients in touch with all aspects of themselves. It was the pioneering psychotherapist Carl Jung who labeled the shadow as one of the four archetypes that he believed serve as an unconscious blueprint for our existence. In Jung's view, the shadow "is an expression of the base, antisocial desires of which we are ashamed and attempt to bury in the unconscious: it is the inner terror that we feel might impel us to dark deeds should we ever lose control," writes David Fontana in the The Secret Language of Symbols. Jung struggled with his own inner shadow and depicted it in his Red Book painting (left). He personified it "as some cloak-and-dagger figure cowering against the far corner of the walls," writes Laurens van der Post, who added that the placement of the figure indicated that Jung "had this aspect of himself 'cornered' at last." --L.L.
Tonight's guest, author Hugh Ross has examined the question of alien phenomena from a traditional Christian perspective. He has suggested that those who witness UFOs or undergo "alien abduction," may have opened themselves up to these experiences through occult associations. In an article posted on Ross' website, titled Alien Encounters Fail the Test, Kenneth R. Samples writes that "demons" could be behind contact encounters. "The contactees may, at times, be experiencing real contact with an objective reality, but, in such instances, that reality would indeed be what the Bible calls the power of darkness," he states. And while Samples acknowledges many believe their contact experiences are benevolent in nature, he argues the source they arise from is suspect. However acclaimed researcher John Mack writes "many abduction experiences are unequivocally spiritual, which usually involve some sort of powerful encounter with, or immersion in, divine light," and that many of the

Yesterday President Bush signed the Homeland Security Appropriations Bill, which commits $31 billion to securing the U.S. against terrorist attacks. Included in that price tag is $84.2 million for infrastructure vulnerability and risk assessment, part of which will go to evaluating the U.S. power grid a grid that has been widely criticized of late. It's easy to understand the criticism. Millions lost power during Hurricane Isabel, some still without electricity. Two months prior, the largest blackout in U.S. history left millions more stranded without power. It is clear the nation's power grid needs not only physical improvements, but competent management as well. This will take money and time. It is imperative, however, that we fix the weaknesses in our energy infrastructure, or we may soon find ourselves alone in the dark (again). --S.L.
In his book, The Psychic Battlefield, W. Adam Mandelbaum recounts how nations throughout history have used psychics to gain strategic advantage over their enemies. One of the more common techniques employed by government agencies, remote viewing, allows psychic spies to gain knowledge about inaccessible targets, separated by time and distance. During 1980's, the American and Russian armies experimented with psychic warfare, specifically training psychics for remote viewing espionage. According to David Moorehouse, author of Psychic Warrior, the U.S. successfully used a team of psychics code-named "Star Gate" as recently as the Gulf War. Unfortunately, Star Gate was disbanded in 1994 due to military cutbacks.Now, America finds itself embroiled in yet another Middle Eastern war, hunting down Saddam Hussein and other elusive members of his terrorist regime. Instead of spending billions to send thousands of soldiers around the world looking for him, perhaps the U.S. should train a
Tonight's first hour guest, Epidemiologist Dr. Robert W. Haley, has been studying the connection between Gulf War Syndrome and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) for the last decade. ALS, sometimes called Lou Gehrig's disease, is a rapidly progressive neurological disease that results in paralysis and eventually death. For those afflicted, there is no hope of cure for the disease.A recently published study in this month's issue of Neurology shows the rate of ALS in Gulf War veterans younger than 45 years of age was as much as three times more than the rate expected in the general population.Dr. Halely notes, "ALS is extremely rare in young age groups. Our findings suggest that some environmental exposure that these veterans had in the Gulf War greatly accelerated the ALS process so that it occurred at a much younger age."Despite mounting evidence, not everyone is convinced of the relationship between Gulf War service and ALS.

The Hag in BlackA few years ago, I had an Old Hag experience. I noticed myself laying in my bed. It was early morning and my apartment was illuminated by the dawn sun. I looked towards the foot of my bed and saw a short woman with black, hair, eyes, and dress standing in the corner of the room. This terrified me and at that moment I realized that I was paralyzed. In an instant, I saw the woman approach me at a very fast speed. It was as if every time I blinked (although I am not sure I was blinking), she had advanced on me until her face was right in front of mine and it felt as though she was sitting on my chest. After that, I seemed to break out of the paralysis and found myself laying in bed in my empty room. I have had a few instances of hypnagogic (hallucinatory) sleep paralysis in my life, but this was the scariest.
Tonight's guest, Dr. Brian Weiss, has found startling evidence for the idea of reincarnation and past lives, through his work with regression techniques. Conversely, the late Dr. Helen Wambach, pioneered "future-progression" studies with large groups of people beginning in 1980. What she found, as documented in the book Mass Dreams of the Future by Chet Snow, disturbed her.
Investigator Linda Moulton Howe (earthfiles.com) appeared in the first hour of Wednesday's program, reporting on a set of unusual megalithic stones found off the coast of Cuba that resembled architecture. They "can't be explained in natural geology," said Linda, who listed such shapes as triangles, pyramids and curved surfaces as showing up in the sonar images. Linda interviewed Paul Weinzweig, co-owner of Advanced Digital Communications International, who was involved in the deep ocean bottom discovery. He told her that National Geographic had expressed interest in a preliminary survey of the structures before they would commit to a more extensive examination. To view photographs and read more details check out Linda's report on Earthfiles.com.
Tonight's guest Rosemary Guiley has explored the fascinating terrain of dream animals. "Animals are the dream world's greatest teachers," she writes in an article from her website. She suggests that animals that appear in our dreams represent the unconscious and as such can reveal material from deeper or higher layers of our being. Certainly animals have played a major role in mythologies and religions throughout the ages, and these associations and symbols can reverberate in our dreams. James Hillman, the author of Dream Animals, refers to these creatures of our psyche as "archetypal eternal images." These inhabitants of our imagination, he says, are unpredictable, and cannot be "captured" into a single meaning. Guiley believes dream animals can point us towards traits that we need to develop. "Whether they seem to be friend or foe, dream animals are our spiritual allies, guides and teachers," she writes. Meanwhile in the humdrum waking world, my cat seems to be saying nothing mo

Glenn Kimball will be discussing Melchizedek, whom he says was the first recorded person to be given the promise that he would have power over his death and not die (Hebrews 5: 4-10). Described as the King of Salem in the Bible, he was pictured giving Abraham bread and wine, in the famous painting by Rubens.
Tonight's guest, James Gardner, breaks away from both mainstream scientific and religious thought, with his "biocosm" theory. "The immense saga of biological evolution on Earth is one tiny chapter in an ageless tale of the struggle of the creative force of life against
the brute intransigence of lifeless matter," he writes. This view turns the standard scientific precept that life developed randomly and is of no cosmic significance, on its head. Gardner's hypothesis also parts from the Judeo-Christian notion of an unknowable supernatural Creator. He writes "the mind of God is the natural culmination of the evolution of the mind of humans and other intelligent creatures throughout the universe." But what if "life" itself is merely a label of our own invention? "Try as we might to impose a definition of life on nature, there are bound to be instances where the distinction between living and non-living is blurred or indeterminate," David Darling expounds in his Extraterre
Gary Pratt, the founder of the think tank Tree House Consulting shared some of his group's innovative technologies in the first hour of Tuesday's show. One of their techniques involves the use of frequency vibrations, such as used in Tesla's experiments. Pratt cited a "hologramic disc sticker" as one of their innovations which could be used to change molecular structures. In a live demonstration, he explained how such a sticker could be used to cool the temperature of ice water, by acting as a "radiant barrier." Among some of Tree House's other environmentally friendly concepts are durable roof tiles made from recycled tires, and a special soil polymer, that doesn't dry out even when sitting out in the desert. According to Pratt, it could have tremendous applications for planting and growing without irrigation.
By Linda C. Years ago, I worked at a barbeque place and had to be at work at 4:30 in the morning. On my route I walked by the back side of a big park; it was said to be a special place in the past for the Native Americans with natural springs right off the Colorado river. One morning I was walking as usual and I passed this place that went under the bridge; it was a little path opposite a tunnel and I heard what sounded like a small kitten mewing just out of sight in the shadows. I stopped and called to it to see if I could make it come out; it wouldn't, so I kept on walking. For several days this went on, then something started to change. It was the sound the animal was making; it became more insistent; like a cat when it's watching you open a can of cat food. Then the sound it was making turned into a sound an angry cat makes when it growls at you. By then I knew it wasn't an animal, not even close. By this time I was praying when I walked. This seemed to make it more angry,
Tonight's guest, Col. John Alexander is an expert in the cutting edge technology of non-lethal weaponry, some of which seems right out of the pages of science-fiction. And yet, there's one non-lethal weapon which was successfully employed in Operation Iraqi Freedom, that's decidedly low-tech. Cold, hard cash. In the October issue of Soldier of Fortune, Don McLean notes that while less-than-lethal military weapons are often too lethal, or too useless, "bald-faced bribery," can be more effective than a precision bomb, and comes with no collateral damage. According to his article "The Greenback Bomb: The Smartest Ordnance of All," the Pentagon acknowledged the importance of such methods, and oversaw PsyOps forces that in addition to massive leaflet drops, used a barrage of "black methods." Senior Iraqi officials were "inundated with emails and calls to their mobile phones. The messages were personal, usually tailored to the individual," and urged surrender for the benefit of themsel
