Dimension Apprehension

Science doesn’t stand in one spot and points. Science leads.
We cannot refuse to go where science leads us, even if it’s to places we never thought we’d visit.

So many people claim that Bigfoot and Dogman and other cryptozoological beings cannot exist. They point to science as proof.
But science is no longer where it was when they were young.
Most people learn very little once they’re out of school, and when they point to science as proving the impossibility of these creature’s existence, they tend to refer to science as it was when they learned it.
When you talk about a multiverse, about parallel dimensions these people call it sci-fi, fantasies.
But it isn’t.

Reputed scientists are now more and more leaning towards the concept that we live in a multiverse. That parallel dimensions are right there, next to us, even though we may not be able to perceive them.
When science talks about parallel universes they mean real universes that exist in other dimensions.
At the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Geneva, Switzerland they are working on learning about these parallel universes right now. Continue reading Dimension Apprehension

Dogman and ESP

Extra sensory perception.
What is it?
Well, it’s a collective name for perceiving something through one or more senses other than the usual five.
But do we really only have five regular senses? Is sight, smell, taste, hearing and touch all there is?
Well no.
Some neurologists claim we have nine senses, some say it’s more like 21.
Some senses fit within the boundaries of one of those five basic ones, such as touch, which also includes perception of pressure, heat and pain.
But then there are other recognized senses such as interoceptive Designs-should-have-balanceones, like  equilibrioception (balance, alignment, direction, acceleration, gravity), the organic sense (sense of internal condition such as hunger and thirst) and proprioception (perception of the position of body parts).

An interesting sense is one called magnetoception. It allows us to sense magnetic fields.
It can be used to get a sense of direction by picking up on the Earth’s magnetic field.
Birds have a particularly strong sense of magnetoception which allows them to migrate all across the world and still find their old nesting spots.
In humans this sense is not as strong though, and I personally think it even varies between individuals. Continue reading Dogman and ESP

The Dyatlov Pass Incident- addendum

The Dyatlov Pass Incident, part 1
The Dyatlov Pass Incident, part 2

Since researching and writing the posts on the Dyatlov Pass incident I haven’t been able to put the incident out of my mind for long.

Recently I’ve been mulling over a new theory I’ve had. However, I’ve been unable to satisfactory explain everything that happened on that fateful night, more specifically the tent…
Here goes:
Theory: meteor/ meteors.
Potential scenario:
Group is in/ around tent. Someone sees a meteor/ they hear a bang, tent is evacuated for unknown reason. Camera snaps photo using a filter designed for shooting under bright conditions.
Meteors are bright. The one that hit Chelyabinsk in 2013 was, at its brightest, 30 times brighter than the sun.
It actually caused severe burns to people’s skins and retinas, which also fits with the Dyatlov incident, as the bodies were very tanned.
Does the last photo taken by the Dyatlov group picture a rushed attempt at photographing a crashing meteor? Continue reading The Dyatlov Pass Incident- addendum

The lost village at Lake Angikuni

Nunavut

When researching this story I usually found the name of lake spelled Anjikuni. The reason for this is because most writers have been copying a story from a 1959 book called Stranger than Science by Frank Edwards, in which he misspelled the name. Some spreading this story are also claiming that the missing village consisted of two thousand people or more. This is also wrong. They were apparently twenty five.
The story does not originate with Edwards, it goes back at least to 1930 and an article by Emmett E. Kelleher.
As far as I can tell, based on the earliest account of the story I have found here, this is what happened:
Trapper Joe Labelle arrived in the Inuit village in Nunavut, Canada by canoe, finding the settlement empty. Continue reading Mass Disappearances, part 2

Mass Disappearances, part 1

People sometimes go missing under the most mysterious and strange circumstances. One second they’re there and the next they’re not.
Search parties are formed, scanning an increasingly vaster area without luck. K9 units fail to pick up a scent to follow. The whole situation seems off, unnatural.
In the cases where a body is found, or in extremely rare cases the person is found alive, it tends to be either miles away through inhospitable, even impossible terrain, or in an area that has already been thoroughly searched.
Cases like these have been extensively studied by such researchers and authors as David Paulides and Stephen Young. Baffling, fascinating and terrifying cases that seem to defy any sort of rational explanation, making you feel like the world and your existence in it is less solid than you thought. Like you have less of a grip on how life, the world and everything functions than you thought.
It pulls the rug from under you in a way. It’s just severely unsettling.

The only thing even more unsettling are the cases of mass disappearances.
How does a whole village, the whole crew of a ship, a whole regiment just go missing in one single instant?
And what’s to stop it from happening to me or you?

Malaysia flight 370

Most recently, but perhaps to so mysteriously, we have the the missing plane Malaysia Flight 370.
It was on its way from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing when it disappeared on March 8, 2014 with all of its 227 passengers and 12 staff members.
The mystery is that no remains of the plane or the victims has been found, even after a whole year, despite extensive searches covering millions of square kilometers.
Why it might not be so mysterious? It disappeared over the sea. Most likely it did crash and sink to the sea floor. Only about 40% of the sea floor in the priority search zone has been scanned so far.
This is still a relatively fresh case, there is still a chance it will be resolved.

The where area Malaysia Flight 370 disappeared

Looking back a bit further we find cases that seem a bit harder to explain. Continue reading Mass Disappearances, part 1

I’ve written about the Ural Mountains in my posts about the Dyatlov Pass incident here and here, but that is not the only strange thing about the Urals.

Werewolves

I read this article by Nick Redfern at Mysterious Universe today and it got me all flustered with, almost gratitude, that someone who actually is someone within the world of cryptozoology would finally write what I’ve been saying for so long, like here.

The problem with werewolves is the lore. The fact that they have existed in legends and fairy tales, as a movie monster for so long that people for countless generations have been told that it’s just make believe. The non-existence of the werewolf has become a fact. What other cryptid has been subjected to such bias over such a long time? Continue reading Werewolves

Autopsy results and more information

Yuri Doroshenko, 21.
Dyatloff_group_115_Dor[1]Born in 1938 he was a student of the UPI university. He was once involved in a relationship with Zina Kolmogorova and even met her parents in Kamensk-Urals. Although they broke up he kept a good relationship with her and Igor Dyatlov.
Doroshenko was one of the two bodies found under the cedar tree and he was wearing a vest and a short sleeve shirt, knit pants and shorts over pants. His pants were badly ripped with one large hole (23 cm in length) on the right side and smaller on the left (13 cm in length). Pants had tears on the inside of the thighs.

The Dyatlov Pass Incident, part 1

In 1959 something strange happened in Russia. In the Ural mountain chain lies the mountain Kholat Syakhl, which in the local Mansi tongue means Mountain of the dead. The reason for this name is that 9 Mansi hunters once stayed here overnight and were all found dead later. The Mansi people believe the mountain is haunted and hence avoid it.

On the east shoulder of this Mountain of the dead, in an area later to be named the Dyatlov Pass, a group of 9 students and researchers met their strange and untimely deaths in 1959.
Igor Dyatlov, 22, Semen Zolotarev, 38, Lyudmila Dubinina, 21, Nicolai Thibeaux-Brignolle, 25, Alexander Kolevatov, 25, Yuri Krivonischenko, 24, Rustem Slobodin, 23, Yuri Doroshenko, 21 and Zinaida Kolmogorava, 22.

Vittra

I’ve been immensely tired after my surgery and the BP thing but now I’m starting to finally feel a bit like myself again. I have however been thinking and even writing quite a bit during this time, drafts, that hopefully will become posts in the future. But this one will be about vittra, or they will never leave me alone…
I’ve had this feeling, and by feeling I mean obsessive compulsion, to write about vittra for a long time now. They come up in conversations, they pop up in things I read, even though I was really searching for something else. I keep stumbling over stories wherever I look, so, without further ado I give you…

Vittra

A vitter (plural: vittra) is a member of a species also known as the underground people. They are a folkloric belief here in Sweden, especially in the north and they are said to be living their lives parallel to us.
The vittra are mortal, they can die, just like us. They have children, just like us, they keep cattle, just like us, well, at least like us in the olden days. They have dogs. They are just slightly smaller than us in stature. They wear clothes, mostly grey, yellow and red from what I can gather.
If I should “translate” the old folkloric beliefs into modern views on the paranormal I would say the vittra live in another dimension, one very close to our own.
