A Collection of Blogs from Bloggers from around the World

Hello Grimericans! Here we are only two months into 2017 and I’m getting out a blog post! Whoo-Hoo! Looks like I might have just learned something after all my whole time traveling fiasco. But we’ll see how the rest of the year goes before claiming that victory. Anyways, in case you’re wondering, no, I didn’t misspell the title. This post is about suspending one’s belief. Or more accurately, one’s overwhelming willingness to accept claims without doing the due diligence to verify said claims. Now this can be a complicated position to take although, it really shouldn’t be. If you partake in the “Fortean Community”, whether it be on the topic of Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon, relict hominins or ghosties and Ghoulies, you might find it hard at times to cast shadows of doubt on your fellow Forteans’ theories, stories and beliefs for fear of being called the “S” word. I would like to say that my inbox is inundated with accusations from my countless readers that even I am too skeptic to be writing a blog called “Fortean Mindset”. Truth be told, I have never once received an email from a reader.

 

 

 

 

That might actually be a blessing in disguise. Disregarding the lack of email accusations, I do from time to time get to interact with self-proclaimed skeptics and believers alike. More often, when touching on the subject of foteana, it is usually with someone who is just curious. In any case, the outcome is usually me being told by the other party that I’m more skeptic than what they would have thought. Personally, I take this as a compliment. I like being able to keep one foot on the ground while exploring the possibilities, and if in that exploration I find something that doesn’t make sense or makes perfect sense or moreover, makes me more curious, then at least I have that foot, or in some cases, a couple of toes, on the ground. When told that I am more skeptic or too skeptic, I always iterate that skepticism is a good thing. Hell; EVERYONE is a skeptic! Whether you question the stories of people seeing discs in the skies or Ape Men in the forests, or whether you question the explanations given to phenomenon; you’re still a skeptic. Much like the word “conspiracist” has been weaponized in mainstream culture to cast doubt on someone’s rational, the word “skeptic” has been weaponized in the Fortean community to cast doubt on someone’s willingness to be open minded. The two are collectively exhaustive and not mutually exclusive.

 

 

“Check out the big brain on Fortean Mind…”

 

 

Why the word “skeptic” has become weaponized, I think, is quite simple. People don’t like having their beliefs attacked. To borrow from Dogma, one of my favorite 90’s movies of all time.

 

I think it’s better to have ideas. You can change an idea. Changing a belief is trickier. People die for it, people kill for it.

 

And people shun other people for it. Make others outcasts for it. Beliefs are a powerful thing. And in the framework of the Fortean community, its members are used to ridicule for their ideas, their beliefs. Ridicule can hurt and hurt people can lash out. This is why being skeptical can be a complex position to take. I am by no means claiming that all those who are “believers” hate or shun a skeptical voice. There are a lot of people whose views and ideas can be considered fringe who welcome a questioning eye. There are many who feel that getting down to the crux of whatever matter they are examining is the most important thing to achieve. But by the same token, there are many who are dug deep in their beliefs, whether it be Fortean phenomena or scientific Dogma.

 

 

Oh… He said it. Clever…”

 

 

So where does that leave us? Honestly, I don’t know. Maybe one day, all of these questions will be answered and there will be no need for name calling, shunning and all together unpleasantness. Barring that, it’s up to all of us, self-proclaimed skeptics, believers and the curious alike to just be nice to each other and hear one another out. Someone having a different opinion than you isn’t the end of the world. I for one want to question EVERYTHING. That means the ufoligist’s theories about what people see in the skies as well as the official version of it just being swamp gas reflecting off of Venus. It might seem corny, by I want to be a truth seeker. You can’t seek something you think you’ve already found it. So yes, I might not quite believe that you can conjure ice spikes by thinking about it (yes, I’ve tried, many times, and to no avail) but that doesn’t mean I’m closed off to the idea that there might be something to it. Yes, I question the possibility of an interdimensional Sasquatch but that doesn’t mean I can discount how many loose ends that ties up. So if I meet you or happen to correspond with you and I seem a little too skeptical for your liking, please just know that I’m not trying to be cynical or snarky, I just have a need to question everything. Whether that’s questioning the reality of consciousness or the supposed haunted house at the edge of town. For me, being open-minded means being skeptical. I honestly would love to hear any thoughts of anyone who gave the time to read this has to say. Leave a comment below and let others know what you think. Spark a conversation. Who knows where it will lead. Well that’s it for me Grimericans, stay classy!

interview starts 35:10   Craig Flowers joins us to talk about his work, the “Heretics Guide to Reality”, hopefully an upcoming book or video presentation. It’s a new TOE – Theory of Everything with new equations including Time. Time as a quantum particle….. Craig is a long time listener to the show and we’ve been going back and forth about his theories. We thought it best to give him a platform to discuss this. It’s very thought provoking and intriguing.    We chat about some of the mainstream discoveries that have yet to persuade the dogmatic institutionalized paradigm we are in. We talk about time crystals and how it’s impossible for galaxies to be bumping into each other if they are all supposed to be expanding outwards. The simulation theory, a new Drake equation, Nassim Haramein’s work, geometry vs math and puritanical science are other topics that we touch on.   Craig also shares how he thinks he came about this information and his process of articulation.    https://www.facebook.com/superrelativity/ https://www.facebook.com/hereticsguidetoreality/ https://www.google.com/url?q=https://docs.google.com/document/d/1y_OHkttPZpbkyvrqzYaclWy7Z1D4LkFrGmYelcDzT5Y/edit?usp%3Dsharing&sa=D&ust=1486449333636000&usg=AFQjCNHF4oKCJbGDf8v98-87u1b2LwOJbQ https://docs.google.com/document/d/e/2PACX-1vS9KJ1jijPU0eLekdj7O2SfhfislSTFAaWDc-zjRbXjh5pK1s2jxNdnYvmRuHz3XyQ_Aw26hyrjoiYd/pub     In the intro Jessica,who is another listener of the show joins us to chat about the importance of having open minded conversations, and to share one of her ghost experiences.

Hello my fellow grimericans!

As last year banged to a close, and we all stared wide-eyed at the political circus rounding through it’s final act, I promised a rather ambitious project: A primer of conspiracy theory in the modern age. As I stared down the project and began an outline, I realized I was in some serious trouble. Each of the major categories of conspiracy web out into a thousand glittering strands. A list of conspiracies stating just the very basics of who, what, where, when, how, and why quickly became overwhelming, especially if I aimed to track them all, and not simply the ones I believe to be relevant.

I’m altering my intentions. Now I mean to talk about 100 different things relating to conspiracy and alternative media. This list will be completely capricious. I do hope it will be revealing and that I might introduce you to some very interesting stuff. Much of it is not new, and some of it will be down right old. Still, I bet you’ve missed quite a bit of it. After all, there is so much to see!

With that said, let me present this week’s winner and theme. The category is Occult Symbolism and the winner is Heliofant and his video, I Pet Goat II. I found this video some years ago, as I was delving into symbolism, masonry, illuminati, hollyweird, Carl Jung, and Joseph Campbell (among others). This video is a rich tapestry of symbolism rampant in popular media, weaved into a narrative of the controlling interests of the age pitted against the individual yearning for something better. There are lots of videos breaking down the various visuals that claim all sorts of things about this film. Some of them are full of crap, some are not. Personally, I stay away from these derivative videos and let Heliofant speak for Heliofant.

If occult symbolism interests you, here is some follow-up homework:

vigilantcitizen.com – a site discussing hollyweird symbolism, nefarious sites, and occulted art

Southland Tales – a movie so rich in Illuminati symbolism (and hollywood star power!) that it begs the question “What is going on in the southland?”

martyleeds33.com – the mathemagician himself explores the meaning in numbers, letters, and basic symbolism in an accurate and hopeful manner.

The Key to the Universe by Harriette Augusta Curtiss: Written by a couple of Christian Mystics around the time of World War One, this book is a rich exploration of number, letter (hebrew), and tarot.

 

THE ALL IMPORTANT POWER RATINGS (CONTINUOUS):

films

1. I Pet Goat II *****
I love this film! It flips the script on the fear, apathy, and hopelessness so often found in popular media. Let us each find the Christ consciousness that dwells inside!

2.Southland Tales **1/2
The best part of this movie is the incredible proliferation of various memes and symbolism that are (and were) so very prevalent. In one scene, Justin Timberlake sports one eye and a Baphomet in blood on his t-shirt while dancing with a dozen Marilyn Monroes. Also, the war between North Korea and Hollywood is at the forefront (if ever there was a more impotent devil than N. Korea, I have yet to see it…). This movie is entertaining despite itself. No wonder you’ve never heard of it before!

 

websites

1. martyleeds33.com ****1/2
Marty Leeds is on to something. The originator of the 1-7-1 english gematria cypher (most commonly referred to as the Marty Leeds Cypher) aims to show you that you are at the center of your universe. One of the great illuminators of our age, he casts a bright light on the occult. This is a great reference for numerology, cosmology, occultism, and especially the art of gematria.

2. vigilantcitizen.com ***1/2
Although I really like this site, it is hard to come away from it with any sense of hope. It is rich with current happenings and some very strange stories I’ve seen no where else, but it is a bit of a downer. Still, the purveyor knows his business. Enter at your own risk.

 

books

1. The Key to the Universe by Harriette Augusta Curtiss *****
I love everything about this book except its final verdict. Do these brilliant and rare theologians really believe that the human race is bound to find perfection in celibacy? I am not of the crowd that believes our sexuality is the cause of our problems (although I believe our inability to deal with our sexuality in a responsible manner is indeed central to our problems – responsibility being the key to this critique). That said, the first 400 pages (nearly the entire book) was a revealing, poetic, intoxicating read. And its a hundred years old to boot! It goes to show that we’ve had the truth all along.

Hello Grimericans! What can I say? It’s been a fun year for me. Not that you would know because as I noticed a few weeks ago, I have only published one single, solitary blog post this year! That is unacceptable to Darren, Graham, myself and of course all three of my regular readers (the latter parties excluded). And as 2016 is rapidly coming to a close, with only a few hours left before the proverbial and literal ball drops, I am frantically researching the topic of… I don’t know. I have so many ideas for posts, but all topics on my list would require more research than I have time for. Time for… Time… Time travel! I’ve got it! I will simply construct a device that will allow me to travel back into history and provide me with the adequate time needed to satisfactorily write a well laid, thought provoking article. Heck! Why stop at just one?! I can write a whole year’s worth of blog posts. Well that’s taken care of. I’ll just do that. No problem. Now if I remember correctly from a previous post I wrote on time travel, I’m going to need a safe word in case I run into myself and I need to warn past me of something… I would have to already have had to come up with it, that way, past-me would know it… Damn… this time travel stuff is confusing. Maybe I can afford a little time to research what could go wrong if I were to go back into the annals of 2016 and pop out a few posts. What am I saying? I have all the time in the world. Let’s see. The first thing I would have to worry about is obviously the…

 

 

The Butterfly Effect

 

Sweet, I love this movie! Amy Smart all the way! Am I right?! But now that I think about it, things didn’t go too well for good ol’ Aston in the end there; did it? Actually, I don’t remember. That movie had like four different alternative endings. I’m sure one of them had to be good. But okay, the butterfly effect. That’s the one that if you were to hypothetically travel back into time and accidentally (or purposefully, you demented bastard) kill a butterfly, then that seemingly little act can have a huge effects and a cascade of consequences that change history as the time traveler would have known it. If one were to dig more deeply into the subject, you would find that the butterfly effect is part of Chaos Theory which has its place in mathematics. Now since I have a tendency to write way more than I should and always fear that I lose readers halfway through my posts, I will not start talking about math. I will let the words of Edward Lorenz, who coined the term “butterfly effect” and was the driving force of developing chaos theory, summarized it as:

 

Chaos: When the present determines the future, but the approximate present does not approximately determine the future.

 

 

So I think what this is saying is that I need to avoid butterflies at all costs. Now, without hurting your head or mine (mostly mine), we’ll move on to:

 

 

The Grandfather Paradox

 

Probably the second best well known time travel paradox. It goes, for those of you who don’t know, if you were to travel back in time to kill your own grandfather, for whatever reason, let’s say you just didn’t like the cut of his jib, upon completion of this morbid deed, you would cease to have ever existed and therefore you couldn’t have traveled back in time and killed your grandfather for his smug attitude and thus, with you not killing him, you were eventually born and are able to travel back in time and kill your grandfather for his holier than thou demeanor, but in doing so, you again seal your nonexistent fate meaning… you see why this is a paradox, right? Now scientists love trying to come up with solutions to these paradoxes and some theoretical physicists have come up with a few ideas on how this situation could pan out. But we’ll get to those in due time. For now, I think for my purposes, all I need to take away from this is to stay away from my grandfather, who was a really nice man anyway and I assure you that there is no bone in my body that would wish that kind-hearted soul ill will, even if he did always cheat at cribbage. So now onto…

 

 

The Bootstrap Paradox

 

Another well-known time travel paradox, the bootstrap paradox gets its name from the old phrase, “to pull oneself up by their own bootstraps” which basically means to improves one’s own situation by one’s own efforts. It makes the mind conjure up rather odd imagery of trying to accomplish this impossible task. And although the origin of the saying is unknown, at least as far as my quick research determined, I’ve read that the term was popularized by science fiction writer Robert A. Heinlein, either by or from his book “By His Bootstraps” (Full PDF here) As I am on a deadline, (at least until I figure out whether or not I should time travel) I haven’t had a chance to read it yet, but I am sure I will, given the time (LOL). As for the paradox itself, it goes something like this: Let’s say that in my quest to travel back into 2016 and try and get a whole year’s worth of articles out, to save even more time, I simply give my past-self all of the blog posts at once. My past-self then publishes them and claim they are of his own creation. Then, when past-me gets to the point on the timeline where current me is, he travels back in time to give his past-him the posts to publish. The paradox part is: where did the original information come from? Maybe that wasn’t the best example, I was just trying to tie it in with my current attempts to transverse time and space. The best example that I read went like this: “What if a time traveler went back in time and taught Einstein the theory of relativity before travelling back to his own time. Einstein claims it’s his own work, and over the following decades the theory is published countless times until a copy of it eventually ends up in the hands of the original time traveler who then takes it back to Einstein, begging the question ‘where did the theory originate’. We cannot say that it came from the time traveler as he learned it from Einstein, but we also cannot say that it is from Einstein, since he was taught it by the time traveler. Who, then, discovered the theory of relativity?” Yep. Try to wrap your mind around that. Maybe this whole, traveling back in time isn’t such a great idea. Especially with things like…

 

 

The Predestination Paradox

 

Well this one is disheartening to my current goals. It is also a popular one for movies. It basically goes that anyone who tries to travel back in time to change history will, by their actions, causes the event that they are trying to prevent to actually occur. The time traveler (me, in this case) would be forever entrapped in a “temporal causality loop” in which the event I’m trying to prevent (being lazy and not writing blogs for 2016) is actually caused by me traveling back in time trying to prevent it. Now there are a few “solutions” to this and the others but I’m starting to think those might have to be a post unto themselves. But for now, it would seem that this paradox says that, “the past is the past, man. Leave it alone.” Damn, I hate this paradox’s casual attitude! Ya know what? I think that I’m thinking too small with this blog post thing, if I’m going back in time, I might as well do it for the good of humanity, right?! I could prevent some horrible disasters, maybe even save some lives! Hell, I could kill Hitler! Except for, of course the…

 

 

Let’s Kill Hitler Paradox

 

Oh my god! I just can’t win, can I? I can’t even go back and prevent horrible events from occurring! Damn it! The “Let’s Kill Hitler Paradox” says that by traveling back in time and killing the führer, I would erase any reason for me to go back in time in the first place. Everything that Hitler did wouldn’t have happened and would have changed the world, and one of those changes would be not giving me a reason to travel back and put one in his little mustache wearing skull. So if there is no reason to go back, then I don’t, and if I don’t go back, then I couldn’t kill him, that would mean that all of the horrible things he did happend and there is a reason to go back, and if there is a reason to go back, then I do go back and I kill him and… UGH! I’m starting to think this isn’t worth it. Is there any way that I can go back and not cause some mind f*#king effect? Nope, because of the…

 

 

Timeline Corruption Hypothesis

 

Well this one pretty much seals it and dashes my dreams of a 2016 full of awesome blog posts. The timeline corruption hypothesis states that any time travel will result in unavoidable changes to history. I liken it to the observer effect where a subject (in this case, the past) will alter its behavior by being observed. Anything I would do in the past, including the mere act of observing it, would change it. And that’s not a risk that I, for one, am willing to take. I guess all I can do now is throw away this useless time machine and simply make a conservative effort to my future posts here in Grimerica. Who knows what would have happened if I went back in time. Hell, Trump could have won the presidency. Lol. Like that would have ever happened. Well, maybe I’ll just take a peek…

 

 

“Great Scott!”

OH SHIT! Sorry America! I promise I won’t do that again. I didn’t even give myself the posts I had. I guess it was predestined for me not to put those out in 2016. I’ll guess they’ll just have to wait until next year. Seriously though America, sorry. Well I guess there’s nothing left for me to say except that that’s it for me Grimerica. Have a happy New Year and don’t forget to stay classy!
