The above image came out pixalated like this; except it was more of a black dot. Immediately became pixalated when I tried to get a closer look by zooming in. I took it with a funky digital camera; a cheapo I bought on sale a few years ago at Radio Shack.
When I took the picture, I was just randomly taking shots of the sky. A few birds up there, but that was it. I didn’t see anything unusual in the sky at all; no UFOs, oddly shaped planes or craft, etc. (And I’m always hoping, of course!)
Got home, uploading the images. And this pixalated thing showed up. I’ve tried to get a clearer image; changing size, color, ratio, and so on but nothing. And I’m no camera expert, by any means.
So if anyone has any idea what this is — and my mind is going towards a cloaked craft of some kind, although, don’t get excited, it’s likely a government monitoring device — I welcome your opinions.
This link at Mike Clelland’s hidden experience blog where, as he comments, this mutilation took place “about two miles from my house” in Idaho. Mutilated cow creepy, suspicious – ValleyCitizen – Teton Valley’s Local News Source
Zach Griggs leases pastureland for nearly 100 head of cattle near 3000 South in Teton County. Last Thursday, he arrived at this location to change the use of pastures and noticed his cows were scattered. He initially thought duck hunters had disturbed his cattle and then he noticed that one of his cows was dead.
He approached the animal and identified that its udders were removed, along with its anus, vagina and one eye. “Whoa, this is a mutilation,” Griggs determined before he called law enforcement to investigate. Nine years ago, his family had lost a bull the same way. Along with its genitalia, that bull was missing its tongue as well as an eye and an ear. With both the cow and the bull, all of the blood had been removed from the animal and there were no footprints or tire tracks in the vicinity of the dead animal.
Teton County Sheriff’s Deputy Blake Fullmer could confirm that the cuts removing the cow’s body parts were not made by another animal, but it has been difficult to find any additional clues in the case to help explain what happened. Between Satanic cults and extraterrestrial activity, Fullmer was not comfortable making a determination.
“It’s hard to throw those terms out there,” Fullmer said. “I don’t know a lot about that stuff.”
Cattle mutilation is a subject with which Don Griggs, Zach’s father, is very familiar. As a cattleman as well as a former sheriff’s deputy with Madison County for more than 20 years, Don worked on a number of different cases in which animals were mutilated in the exact same manner, with blood drained from the bodies and the same parts removed with a surgeon’s precision.
“It’s a cult thing, has to do with devil worship,” Griggs said. “These people are very professional, they’re slick and sophisticated. No one has ever been caught, but that doesn’t mean that it’s UFOs.”
I’ve begun a new project. Not sure yet how I’ll end up doing this; interactive, as Nancy Birnes suggested, e-book, Kindle, self-publish, blog, pay per installment…so many options. I think, however, that it will be in a sort of journal format, fairly traditional in terms of publishing (e-book/Kindle/self, or through a publisher) with segments posted here at The Orange Orb.
So here it is, working title: Entering the Orb: A Couple’s Journey into Missing Time, Screen Memories and UFOs.
Jim and I have decided, spontaneously and independently of each other, to go through some kind of regression and retrieval process to find out what happened during our missing time experiences. We’ve agreed that we would not share what we found out about our own experiences until all the work has been done. We don’t know yet if we would see different people, or the same person. If we saw the same person, there’s the possibility that person would be unconsciously influenced by the both of us. Than again, maybe not.
A lot of this is absolutely trust based. How can we prove to others that we’re telling the truth when we say we won’t discuss with each other what’s been discovered, until it’s all done? We can’t.
There’s also a large issue of vulnerability here. Some possible causes for the missing time episodes are obvious — as in, oh my god they really were Reptilian Overlords. Other reasons concern memory. As you’ll see in my next post, Jim and I have very different memories of one of our missing time events. Clearly, one of us is wrong. So why the difference in memories? And if it turns out the cause for missing time isn’t UFO related, alien related or some other esoteric or metaphysical cause, then what, and why? Are we unstable? Did someone drug us? (If so, why, and that’s certainly scary on its own.) I could handle any of those, (I think) but what I don’t think I could handle is the possibly we made it all up. Unintentionally of course, but made up nonetheless. If that is so, why in the world would we do so? That in itself is intriguing.
When we first moved into our house, built in 1927, there were some definite remnant energies. I wouldn’t say the house was haunted, exactly, but we both felt strong imprints of previous owners. Oddly, the strongest feeling was fairly recent, rather than decades ago. Just not a healthy feeling. And for many years, there was always a negative feeling emanating from the backyard at night. I often felt silly, because it was just a backyard, medium sized, and fenced; nothing out of the ordinary about it. Why in the world would I feel such a strong creepy feeling every time I went outside at night? After many years, the feeling seemed to have dissipated, but it’s still there on occasion.
Overall, through the years, things have calmed down — not that they were ever exceptionally vivid, as with other haunted places I’ve been in — and nothing has happened for some time. Until the past couple of weeks. Little things, like knowing damn well I put something someplace, and then, it’s gone. And then, a few moments later, it’s back. Happened again this morning; my glasses were not there on top of my computer, which irritated me, since I knew I had put them there the night before. (It’s where I always put them at night.) Look around, thinking they fell on the floor or whatever, look back to the laptop, and there they are. That kind of thing has been happening a lot recently. I wondered why this, and a few other odd little things would be happening again after many years of calm.
Then I realized: we decided to devote ourselves into redoing our house. Not “remodeling” (too poor and house too funky for that) but lots of work, interior and exterior. Due to finances and health issues, we’ve ignored our house, inside and outside, and finally decided to direct our energies to fixing this place up. Two weeks ago we started with the roof — whole thing completely redone. Lots of yard work, cutting back old brush and taking out shrubs and all kinds of stuff. We’ve been very active in this house recently, as far as fixing it up. So it occurred to me that it’s possible all this activity has stirred things up on the other side.
It’ll be interesting to see how this progresses, if at all.
Ida wrote several books about her experiences with channeled ETs and entities, UFO sightings, and most recently, her contributions to My Brother is a Hairy Man, with co-author Lee Trippet about UFO/paranormal Bigfoot encouters.
Ida lived here in Oregon. I never did get the opportunity to meet her, though I did receive a nice eamil from her a few years ago. I have loved her books and in fact, had just finsihed reading her Project Earth a couple of weeks ago.
I always felt that Ida was a brave woman for being so open about her experiences and her philosophies.
Here’s something about Ida from UFO Experiences blog:
In 1940 Ida May Kannenberg met a UFO while traveling through the desert outside Los Angeles. She was tricked into thinking her help was needed and as she thought she was giving blood they were putting implants into her body. She met some of the people she’d later be taking psychic dictation from but forgot all about them when the voices began in 1968.
Ida’s communicators are time travelers from the time of Atlantis and a being from the beginning of time on Earth (Thoth). Her closest collaborator, or “live-in companion”, was Hweig, now deceased, who was the child of a time traveler and a Russian of royal birth.
Since then, Ida has gone from nearly being driven mad by them to becoming the most organized and systematic thinker and writer on UFO and psychic events. Although Ida never takes what they tell her at face value, her experiences with them during the last 37 years have made her extremely interesting and knowledgeable. At 90 she is the Sybil and Jung of this era of UFOs and abductions by aliens.
I referenced Ida in an article on another Oregon contactee I wrote about for my Trickster’s Realm column on BoA. (Psychic Communications with Aliens and UFOs: More Oregon Tales.) In writing about “Jane,” a woman I met many years ago and who had her own UFO and abduction experiences in, among other places, the Gold Hill area, “Jane” refers to Ida Kanneberg:
Jane quotes Oregon UFO author Ida Kannenberg’s UFOs and the Psychic Factor to help explain her ideas about her interactions with aliens. For example, Jane refers to page 187 of Kanneberg’s book, where Kannenberg points out some of the ways extraterrestrials interact with us:
Hallucinatory craft and occupants due to hypnosis of the contactees … craft/personalities are unseen, but their presence detected. These are psychic manifestations … remote contact by telepathy …Ida Kannenberg
Ida Kannenberg has been in contact with alien entities since the nineteen seventies, These communications involve both aliens, as in ET, and Bigfoot. In the book My Brother is a Hairy Man, which she co-authored with Bigfoot researcher Lee Trippet, she writes that, during a conversation with Lee in the beginning stages of the book, and Ida’s potential involvement, (for she was unsure due to her unfamiliarity with the topic of Bigfoot) a psychic communication came through:
Just about there a telepathic voice broke into our discussion to give us some specific directions. I have been steadily interacting with such voices since 1977. This was a new one. He introduced himself as Maez, the head of the Council that monitors Bigfoot. From the planet Arcturus yet! That would explain the UFOs that have been seen in the vicinity of our subject.
I am grateful for Ida’s willingness to share her many experiences with the rest of us; and thankfully, her gifts continue to intrigue us, as well as inspire us, in her writings.
Odd report from McMinnville: MHS football players recovering; mass ’syndrome’ remains a mystery. Oregon.(McMinnville is home of the world famous 1950 Trent UFO sighting and site of the annual McMinnville UFO Festival held in May at Hotel Oregon.) Several high school students, all student atheletes, have come down with an unusual illness:
Ten Mac High School football players were hospitalized this week after experiencing intense muscle pain following workouts at a fall camp conducted by their new coach.
Seven were admitted to the Willamette Valley Medical Center on Wednesday night with sore and swollen triceps, and three were admitted the following night.
Diagnosed with compartment syndrome, three of the players in the initial group underwent fasciotomies designed to relieve the pressure and avoid permanent muscle damage. That could keep them out of action for one to two months, according to the surgeon who made the diagnosis and performed the surgical procedure.
Some 28 players underwent testing Thursday to determine the level of creatine phosphokinase or CPK in their blood, as that is an indicator of the syndrome. Sixteen were sent to the hospital for additional testing, and three of them were admitted, joining the original seven.
Additional players were tested Friday, but none of them showed elevated creatine levels.
There’s more: the students were doing an intensive series of workouts, it was very hot, and they stayed on campus, sleeping there while taking part in this football camp type thing.
The illness – “Compartment syndrome” — is rare, and doesn’t appear in the triceps, according to Dr. Peter Van Patten:
Dr. Peter Van Patten treated the players. He said compartment syndrome isn’t very common, and he’s never seen it strike the triceps before.
“In McMinnville, we do not see compartment syndrome very often,” he said.
The school district is looking into this of course, and asking the community for help and support.
Full disclosure: I haven’t read the book.This is not a book review; it’s about the idea of the book’s premise, from what I’ve been gleaning so far. From what I’ve been reading about Pilkington’s book Mirage Men, the thesis is that UFOs are creations of our government. There are no “real” UFOs; just machines and stories about encounters made by man to confuse its citizenry and mask secret operations.
This is old news. But beyond this simplistic “revelation” about UFOs is the fact the government has been getting away with murder, both figuratively and literally, using UFOs as a convenient smoke screen. Isn’t anyone curious about what’s been hidden from us? Put aside “beliefs” about UFOs, they exist, they don’t exist, aliens are real, aliens are fantasy — just forget all that for now. Ask yourselves what is it the government is doing behind those flying saucers are here! scenarios.
A danger with books like this is that the mainstream culture will think it’s been offered an explanation for all those crazy UFO stories, and move on. Even some within the fringes who study UFOs will accept this. Including those “new thugs” that pose as UFO investigators or researchers but are part debunker-skeptic, part dilettante. Meanwhile, the government continues to perform often illegal maneuvers around us, and no one’s questioning that. In fact, stepping beyond the line of questioning will get you quickly slapped with a Tin Foil Hat sticker and you’re shoved over to the kook side. Mention chemtrails and it’s all over.
Okay, Pilkington and fans, UFOs don’t exist. Forgetting obviously that UFO means unidentified object and not alien from mars in a flying saucer … oh never mind. Sigh. Yet we still have, say, spheres showing up in our skies — these have been photographed dozens of times over — what are they? Whose are they? What are they doing? What about the video of a sphere I saw years ago, taken by a local witness, that seemed to disappear but upon close examination was till there, merely cloaked to near invisibility? What was the thing spraying onto the residences — and people! — below; for spraying some kind of mist like substance it was. Doesn’t anyone want to know about those kinds of things?
Let’s take my own missing time experiences, that occurred within a UFO context. And let’s say, for argument, that this “UFO context” was government created. If so — missing time, UFO — then that means our government was doing something obviously immoral, unethical, and illegal. Which is frightening. For that means, if it’s not UFOs, not mental abberation (shared by two people, two and possibly three, different times), then what was it? Why the persistence of a UFO based setting? WHERE WERE WE FOR ALL THOSE MISSING HOURS??!!
But see, now we’re entering MILAB territory, which is paranoid kook fringe fantasy, so no one is going to listen to that, because UFOs don’t exist, the government just uses that to . . . you see how this all becomes a circling back of absolutely no answers at all, while maintaining cover-ups? In typical cosmic joker trickster fashion, the idea of the government using UFOs as a cover for their shadow projects is a cover for the government’s covering up . . . because not many are questioning beyond the initial cover.
