Linda Moulton Howe Transcript

Linda Moulton Howe(1) was our special guest in Streamlink's(2) Live Chat on Tuesday night. Below are some excerpts from the in-depth Q & A. Members can view the entire transcript(3).

Mrs. Howe, thanks for joining us tonight. My question is "What is the most bizarre story you've ever investigated?"
Linda Moulton Howe
Most bizarre might be a horse mutilation in Cripple Creek, Colorado in early 1980. The horse was seen alive at 7 p.m. the night before when it was fed. It was a healthy strong horse of 9 months. But something terrible happened in the night. Yet, none of the three dogs in the house in the parents' bedroom only about 30 feet from the corral barked. No one woke up. No noise was heard by anyone. At 7 a.m., the next morning, the horse was laying dead and mutilated not far from the house.The horse's left eye had turned a metallic blue. The rectum had been cored out in a 12-inch diameter hole that went about 12 inches into the body. The police and horse owner examined the wounds. The Chief of Police told me, 'I have never seen anything like it. No blood. And when you touched that big hole, it felt like touching fine sand paper, it was so dry.'

Greetings from the USA. What do you think of this Morgellons syndrome we've heard about? Is it real or a hoax? What is it? Thanks.
Linda Moulton Howe
When more than 4,000 people in the United States contact a university and the Morgellons Research Foundation to share the agony of living with painful itch and fibers coming out of their skin which can be photographed, it's got to be studied.
Further, the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta finally might start soon a study of Morgellons patients in Texas, which includes the Registered Nurse, Cindy Casey, that I interviewed for Earthfiles and COAST recently. She has actually gotten tweezers on some of the fibers coming out of her skin and pulled them out. What's quite strange is that to date, no one has been able to definitively determine what the fiber source is and exactly what are they made out of. The fibers most resemble the hyphae of fungi - and now Dr. Randy Wymore at the Morgellons Research Foundation has confirmed very long fibers growing under a patient's skin, which have not broken through the skin. If fungi, could the syndrome be linked to something like a tick bite - i.e., Lyme Disease? Interesting fact: nearly half of all Morgellons patients test positive for Lyme Disease.

Linda, do you know anymore about the undersea archeological formations near Cuba in the Gulf?
Linda Moulton Howe
I talked with Paulina Zelitsky by phone in her Havana, Cuba, home about a year ago. She said she had run out of money to pursue the difficult half-mile-down research into the megalithic structures off the western tip of Cuba. Further, she said that National Geographic, which had talked about financing further deep sea research, had decided against the production. To date, I have not heard anything more from her and neither has anyone else in the media. The last word about her was that she was doing deep ocean work off the eastern coast of Mexico to make money. It's sad that hard research is so hard to fund.

I have to ask Linda, what do you think makes crop circles? Do you think it has anything to do with our satellites? It just can't be made from anyone on the ground, at least the complicated ones.
Linda Moulton Howe
The crop formation phenomenon goes back to at least World War I. Those incidents are well-documented by U. K. researchers. Thus, the idea that circles in cereal crops are somehow the tests of particle beam weapons does not make sense to those of us who have studied the history of the phenomenon in-depth. Further, biophysicist W. C. Levengood says that since he has never found a cooked plant in ten years of investigation, he doubts any nation on Earth would be able to control particle beam weapons to the refinement of laying down crop in multi-layers and directions without heat cooking some part of the formation.

Why do you think that the crop circles in Wiltshire are always so much more elaborate than anywhere else? Is there some reason? Are the crop circle orbs more accomplished there? Why are so many other crop circles...in other countries...often crude, by comparison?
Linda Moulton Howe
The complexity of the patterns and geometries of crop formations in England particularly has always been a question for all of us. But it was England that had the historical formations from the first and second world wars. And it was England that had the first quincunx and other geometries at the end of the 1980s.
Now, in 2006, there is agreement among most serious investigators that the truly mysterious and most mathematically stunning formations have always repeated the same geography: the farms in the Vale of Pewsey, the ancient sacred sites of Avebury, Windmill Hill, Stonehenge and other stone circles and mounds.
And in the United States, specifically in Ohio, the most dramatic American formations of the past decade have also been near the great mounds known as the Hopewell sites in Ohio and extending some into surrounding states. I wrote in my book, "Mysterious Lights and Crop Circles," that the crop circles of the modern era seem to echo the stone circles of 4,000 to 5,000 years ago. Thus, the same "profound intelligence," as astronomer and mathematician Gerald Hawkins said, could be involved now. And England might be the focus because of the strong electromagnetic ley lines that are so well defined in the history of Great Britain. Those magnetic ley lines seem to intersect at sacred sites and that might be the key to the concentration in the limestone-filled large island.
