The Age Of Mind-Controlled Email Messages Is Here...
Scientists have found a way to send brain-to-brain messages using brainwaves connected to computer technology.

A team of researchers from the University of Barcelona in Spain, Axilum Robotics in France, Harvard Medical School and Starlab Barcelona in Spain used EEG headsets to record the electrical activity in the brain related to the formulation of the words ‘hola’ and ‘ciao.’ A computer then converted these messages into binary and used electrical stimulation to implant the information into the receiver’s mind, which then appeared as specific flashes of light in the corner of their vision. The "telephathic" greeting was sent from subject in Thiruvananthapuram, India to another in Strasbourg using only brain-power.

Stuck in a Laundry Basket
It’s very hard to predict earthquakes. So far, nobody has found a reliable method. There was just recently a major quake in Napa, the winemaking capital of California.

It didn’t reach us down here in southern California, but I ended up stuck in a laundry basket anyway. It turns out that there was a microquake literally right under our neighborhood at about the same time that the Napa quake hit.

Spectacular Pennsylvania Report Reaches National TV
See video
A Pennsylvania woman had recorded an unknown phenomenon in the sky on August 26. She, her husband and a neighbor observed a complex object that was stationary in the sky for some time. Local police were called, and they also observed the object as it moved away. The story was picked up on Good Morning America. As a multiple witness event that includes police witnesses, this sighting has a high level of credibility.

Witness Reports Gigantic UFO
This witness report isn't supported with any imagery, but it is typical of a type of UFO that is seen so often that there is no clear reason to disbelieve it. The witness was fishing at night when the half-mile long object slowly moved overhead. “It wasn’t lit up bright. It had a slight glow to it .Nothing fancy.”

“I have seen a lot of things in the night sky and have never seen anything like this. It reminded me of some of the giant ships on the ‘Star Wars’ movie.”

Weekender: Methane -The Silent Menace That Could Destroy Our Planet
A routine survey of the U.S. Atlantic Coastline recently revealed a strange phenomenon. Multitudes of gas plumes were seen bubbling up to the ocean surface, and though the gas has yet to be analyzed, scientists are almost certain that it is methane.

"We don't know of any explanation that fits as well as methane," said lead study author Adam Skarke, a geologist at Mississippi State University in Mississippi State.

Stewards of the Soul
Whitley Strieber reads from an essay he is working on about the familiar short 'blue' beings who are so much a part of both European folklore and the alien encounter phenomenon, and what role they may play in the stewardship of the human soul. This is the essay he was working on when Linda Moulton Howe sent him the 'gnome' photos, which, of course, imply that some sort of reality is unfolding that we do not understand at all, and that it seeks to intensify the questions that surround the whole mystery of our relationship with 'others' and their connection to reality.

Fascinating, exciting stuff!

Genetically Engineered Food: Vintage Dreamland from 2000
August 29, 2014
In 2000, Dreamland was one of the first places where the alarm was sounded on genetically engineered foods. Since then, the genfoods industry has used its vast wealth to turn back any and all attempts to enforce labeling. So the question is still relevant: how do we tell the difference between genfoods and ordinary foods in the grocery store aisle?

Scientists Discover How To Manipulate Memories and Erase Fear
Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have made an astonishing breakthrough: they believe that they now have the ability to erase feelings of fear or anxiety.The researchers discovered which brain circuits attach emotions to memories but, more importantly, they worked out how to reverse this link.

Traumatic experiences can have a profound and negative effect that leaves people emotionally scarred for life, but neuroscientists believe that it may now be possible for them to erase residual feelings of trauma. This could benefit those suffering from depression or post-traumatic stress disorder and remove the need for strong medication.

The Pennsylvania Gnome--Animated!
This short clip animates the Pennsylvania gnome, revealing that it was moving forward, then as soon as its picture was snapped, at once turned around and moved out of frame in a matter of seconds. The sequence is that shot one was the closest. Shots two and three were each a second apart, and in each, it's farther away. If you're an Unknowncountry subscriber, don't miss the subscriber report sourced here. It's absolutely fascinating!

The Methane Danger
This is a journal entry I hoped I would never have to write. For most of my career, I have been fighting to prevent this, to slow it down or at least to plan for it.

What is happening is that methane hydrates are melting in the Arctic Ocean and along the US Atlantic seaboard. The methane they are releasing is adding to that already pouring out of tundra in Siberia, Alaska and Canada.
