The Beginnings of Philosophy in Greece, by Maria Michela Sassi


This is a good beginning to point to.  That they did converse and that they also named themselves is the more remarkable by far.  This type of contemplation has been going on forever..  It was the act of naming that dragged all this out into the light of history.

It has been said that all western philosophy is an annotation of Plato. That is perghaps a valuable study guide we should all take to heart.

All good.

The Beginnings of Philosophy in Greece, by Maria Michela Sassi

Elegant theories provide a new narrative about Presocratic philosophers, writes Emma Gee

By Emma Gee

‘Depth psychology’: ‘according to Heraclitus, we must seek out the logos of our own soul, what Freud was to call the unconscious’

“I searched out myself.” In this fragment of Heraclitus, which wafts down to us from the turn of the 5th century BC, we are struck by an unprecedented level of self-awareness. Heraclitus elsewhere says, “You would not find out the boundaries of the soul, even by travelling along every path: so deep a measure does it have.” This is “depth psychology”. According to Heraclitus, we must seek out the logos of our own soul, what Freud was to call the unconscious. Only then may we reflect, in full knowledge of our subjectivity, on the cosmos around us. “Egotism” (to use Sassi’s term) was a defining characteristic of what we now call Presocratic philosophy.

The main thing that the Presocratics have in common is that they come down to us as fragments, snatches of birdsong from the early morning of Western thought. But despite the tattered nature of the tradition, we have, for the first time, not just one or two names, as of the epic poets, but a crowd of names, jostling for space among the wisdoms that emerged in the Greek world in the 6th and 5th centuries BC. The Presocratics insisted on naming themselves – and on the intrinsic value of the hard-won insight of the individual.

Paradoxically, they had no names for their identity or endeavour. They obviously didn’t call themselves “Presocratics” (the term originates in 18th-century scholarship). Nor was there, in their time, a word for that activity which we call, since Plato and Aristotle, “philosophy”. Sassi, while recognising the subjectivity of these categories, is nonetheless able to advance coherent and elegant theories about this group of thinkers. Her insights are achieved through a series of deeply honest close readings of the texts.

Sassi cautions against seeing the Presocratics as the “founding fathers” of Western philosophy: theirs was a very different, disparate kind of wisdom. Yet the scholarly community finds this narrative difficult to shed. Most undergraduates will still glean from the standard textbooks a notion of the Presocratics as representing the sudden gymnastic saltation of Greek thought from the dancing horse of myth on to the back of the more judicious beast of reason. The standard collection by G. S. Kirk, J. E. Raven and M. Schofield, The Presocratic Philosophers, describes the transition from pre-philosophical thought to the Presocratics in terms of paradigmatic images of “rebirth”, which recreate, despite the more progressive protestations of the authors, the old story of the triumph of logos over mythos. Sassi’s caution is needed.

The destiny of Heraclitus’ work will stand as a salutary reminder of the fundamental difference between the Presocratics and our own intellectual endeavours. Heraclitus is said to have left his book as a votive offering in the Temple of Artemis. Sassi postulates that this was a strategy to ensure both the authority of the book as a religious offering and, even more, its accessibility for the many. Both of these motivations speak to the value and sincerity inherent in Presocratic philosophy. How many of us, these days, would subject our research outputs to a panel of gods – or be brave enough to deposit our books in a railway station or doctor’s waiting room, in the certainty that they would be read and understood for generations to come?

10 Disturbing Stories About Hollywood’s Pedophile Problem


What is happening is that the whole suppressed phenomena of sexual perversion is becoming public knowledge.  The suppression led to  hiding what is not just perversion between consenting adults but also the hiding of criminal perversion against the vulnerable and particularly against children.  It also includes the rape of seminarians within the catholic Church aspects of which were clearly hijacked by homosexuals in particular centuries ago.

It is our burden to see this problem correctly resolved in the world of rising modernity.

Organized sexual perversion is clearly part of the global Civil Service in particular and more publicly, part of the Roman Catholic Administration as well.  These folks have been forced to conspire in order to preserve themselves.  Other obvious targets are also used as well.

Ridding society of this problem needs to be formally addressed.  I do think we can accept consenting adults largely doing what they will with each other so long as no one is hurt or criminally abused.

Even that does beg therapy often as not.  I do have difficulty accepting the bath room subculture as anything other than predatory top to bottom. We also have a subculture of abusive spouses that does need to be properly addressed as well.  There we have at least started in the right direction.  There is much to be done there as well and it really comes back to biting the bullet and formalizing sexual training for our youth upon puberty along with management training.  It has never really been attempted before and will need ample study and a deep understanding.

Then we return to the real problem.  That is the existence of predatory perversion of all kinds.  Pedophilia is the larger aspect of this but it is not alone.   Liberating homosexuality from the veils of secrecy goes along ways toward getting us on the right path.  We can properly exclude the consenting adults and those prepared to take a vow of celibacy and direct our attention to sexual predators.

Again, youth training should also eliminate much of that as well as predation is a response to a frustrated biological need.  Of course i cannot see this happening too soon.

There then remains the capital solution of summary castration for men and a surgical intervention for women.  The fear of just that may drive many to practice abstinence and off obsessive pathways which presages predation.  There are bad choices that can be curbed.

10 Disturbing Stories About Hollywood’s Pedophile Problem

Hollywood has a history with pedophiles. Corrupt managers have used the promise of stardom to sexually abuse for years, all the way back to the days of Judy Garland. It is, in the words of one movie executive, “a time-honored tradition in this town.”

It took the state a long time to do anything about it. Up until 2012, convicted sexual offenders in California were free to work with child actors all they pleased. But even with that change, there are still a lot of dangerous people walking free.

Some of the stories in this article are rumors. Some are facts that have been proven in a court of law. But every one of them makes it clear that there are a lot of men making their fortune in Hollywood who have done terrible things to children — some who have never suffered for their crimes.

10. Roman Polanski May Be about to Get Away with Drugging and Raping a 13-Year-Old

Roman Polanski’s sexual assault of 13-year-old Samantha Gailey [now Geimer] is one of the best-known Hollywood scandals. You might have heard the story before — but you might not realize that Polanski is about to get away with it.

In 1977, Polanski fed the 13-year-old Gailey Quaaludes and alcohol, and sexually assaulted her inside of Jack Nicholson’s home. Gailey, according to her testimony yelled, “No, keep away!” and “Stop it!” while Polanski forcibly sodomized her.

Polanski was found guilty, but he fled the country to avoid jail time. That was 40 years ago, and Polanski has been free ever since. He has made countless films, won Oscars, and not served any of the 50 years he was sentenced to spend in prison.

And he might be about to get away with it completely. At this moment, Polanski is negotiating with the courts. He expects to be allowed to return to the country and not serve any more time in jail — and, so far, it seems like he is going to get his way.

Update: FIVE more women have come forward to accuse convicted child rapist Roman Polanski of sexual abuse, according to the founder of a website called

If verified this would take the total number of women who say they have been raped or sexually abused by the disgraced movie director to TEN. — Read more HERE.

9. Leonardo DiCaprio’s Childhood Manager Sexually Assaulted a 13-Year-Old

Bob Villard was one of the biggest child managers in the industry. He represented some of the most famous young names in Hollywood, including Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire — but if the system had worked correctly, he would not have been allowed anywhere near any of them.

Even before DiCaprio started acting, in 1987, Villard was charged with possession of child pornography. The prosecution, though, failed to prove it in court — and so Villard went free and kept working with kids.

It took until 2001 before they got him in jail. Villard was caught with a whole collection of sexually explicit pictures of young boys. He lost the case, went to jail, and the world became a safer place—for a while anyway, until Villard got out and immediately went right back to managing children.

It did not take long before Villard hurt someone. By 2005, he was caught sexually assaulting a 13-year-old boy he had courted as a client. Villard was sent back behind bars and his career finally ended — but there is no telling how many other clients he may have assaulted that never came forward.

The courts did not seem particularly surprised by Villard’s abuse. “That’s what’s done,” the District Attorney told the press. “This is all normal in the industry.”

8. Bryan Singer Allegedly Raped 15-Year-Old Michael Egan

Even if you have not heard Bryan Singer’s name, odds are you have seen one of his movies. He is the director responsible for the X-Men movies, The Usual Suspects, and the alleged sexual assaults of at least three underage boys.

His most famous accusation comes from Michael Egan, who met Singer at a party when he was 15 years old. Singer, Egan claims, sat the 15-year-old boy on his lap, fed him alcohol and drugs, and promised a role in X-Men. Then, while Egan protested, he sodomized him. After that, Egan claims, Singer raped him regularly, threatening that, if he told anyone about it, he would murder his family.

That is a crazy accusation, and it has never been proven in court — but it is not the only one Singer has heard. Another 14-year-old boy has accused Singer of feeding him Quaaludes and alcohol and anally raping him, and underage extras from the movie Apt Pupil claimed that Singer forced them to strip naked so he could film them in the shower.

Singer has managed to get every one of these accusations thrown out, and so he keeps working as one of Hollywood’s most successful directors. But even if Singer cannot be proven guilty, he spends his time around a lot of people who can be — as you will see.

7. Marc Collins-Rector Definitely Raped 15-Year-Old Michael Egan

Singer was not the only person at these parties. They were held by Marc Collins-Rector, the owner of a media company called DEN. Collins-Rector hired Egan as an actor, and he was the one who invited him.

At these parties, according to Egan, adult men floated drugs and alcohol to teenaged boys, and used them for sex. Not only were they underage, but it was not always consensual. Egan claims that Collins-Rector pinned him down and violently sexually abused him, in one case holding a gun to his head and threatening to shoot him if he did not stop resisting.

Egan did not just file charges against Singer. He filed them against Marc Collins-Rector and two of his associates as well — as did several other boys. One of those boys, incidentally, was Alexander Burton, who was given the role of Pyro in Bryan Singer’s X-Men.

When the charges came in, Collins-Rector fled the country. He ran as fast as he could so that he would never have to meet his accusers in court. The boys were awarded $4.5 million — and, when the police finally found Collins-Rector, he confessed to five charges of sexually assaulting minors.

6. Disney Hired Convicted Child Molester Brian Peck

Marc Collins-Rector is not even the only convicted pedophile associated with Singer. There is also Brian Peck, who played a minor role in Singer’s X-Men. Singer cast Peck again in X-Men 2 — which was a strange choice for a movie about gifted youngsters. After all, between the two movies, Peck went to jail for sexually assaulting a 15-year-old.

Peck also worked as a dialogue coach, often working with companies like Nickelodeon to coach child actors. He spent 6 months having a sexual affair with an unnamed child actor on Amanda Bynes’ The Amanda Show until the family charged him with sexual assault in 2001.

Peck, though, got out of jail and went right back to work. And it was not just Bryan Singer who hired him — Disney hired the convicted child molester, back on his old job, to work as a dialogue coach on The Suite Life of Zack & Cody.

5. Corey Haim Was Allegedly Raped on the Set of Lucas

After Corey Haim died, his friend Corey Feldman became one of the most outspoken actors willing to talk about pedophilia in Hollywood. The two Coreys were famous for being abused. In the words of Little House on The Prairie star Alison Arngrim, “Everybody knew that the two Coreys were just being passed around.”

Feldman started real controversy when he claimed that Haim was assaulted on the set of Lucas. An older man, Feldman claims, told Haim “it was perfectly normal for older men and younger boys in the business to have sexual relations, that it was what all ‘guys do.’ ”

Feldman would not name the assaulter because the statute of limitations in California made it impossible to press charges. If he did, he said, he would be sued for libel while the rapist could not be touched. Other friends of Haim, though, have backed up Feldman’s story.

All Feldman will say is that the attacker “is still prominently in the business today” — a line that has led to a lot of speculation. Some have suggested it was Charlie Sheen. One of Haim’s friends accused director Dominick Brascia.

Brascia, for his part, denies it, but says he knows who really did it. With the law protecting the guilty, though, it is unlikely we will ever know for sure.

4. Martin Weiss Was Released as Soon as He Was Convicted

Martin Weiss was a Hollywood manager who specialized in finding kids. He had his share of successes. Nickelodeon and Disney both used him as a talent scout and took on the kids that he found. The whole time, though, he was using his position to abuse children.

Weiss used his position to take advantage of 11-year-old Evan Henzi more than 30 times over a period of years. It took until Henzi was 14 to work up the courage to press charges. Weiss pled no contest and was sentenced to one year in jail — but, since he had served the prison time while he was waiting for his trial date, he was released as soon as he was convicted.

“I’m angry at the legal system,” Henzi said after his abuser was released. “I blamed myself and felt guilty. Going back to the beginning, I realized that was not the case and it was just me trying to believe that everyone was good in the world and knew better than me. Now that I’m older, I know it was just sick. You don’t have sex with an 11-year-old kid.”

3. A Nickelodeon Production Assistant Used His Job to Assault Children

Jason Michael Handy describes himself as a “pedophile, full-blown.” That, though, did not stop him from taking a job at Nickelodeon.

Handy used his position to lure children. In 2004, he contacted a 14-year-old girl over the internet, introduced himself as a Nickelodeon producer, and promised her a television career. The lure of stardom was enough to get the young girl to give up anything — and so she let him fly all the way to Michigan, where he met her at her school.

When he was arrested for molestation, the police found a cache of child porn in his home. They also found out that he had been volunteering at the local church so he could prey on the children there, too.

It is a terrible story — but the really terrible part is that nothing changed. In 2009, after serving his time, he got out of jail and moved to North Carolina — and then did the same thing all over again.

2. Woody Allen Allegedly Raped His Seven-Year-Old Daughter

But these stories are not just limited to production assistants. Some of the biggest names in cinema have been accused of pedophilia. The worst of all has to be Woody Allen — who was accused of raping his own daughter.

“When I was seven years old, Woody Allen took me by the hand and led me into a dim, closet-like attic on the second floor of our house. He told me to lay on my stomach and play with my brother’s electric train set,” Allen’s daughter, Dylan Farrow, claims. “Then he sexually assaulted me.”

Farrow took her father to court for it, but she was not able to prove it. The judges, though, ruled that “the best interests of these children would be served by remaining together in the custody of Ms. Farrow” instead of Allen. He even forbid Allen from visiting his children.

It does not help Allen’s case that he married his adoptive stepdaughter. Nor does it help that his own son, Ronan Farrow, also thinks he did it. “I believe my sister,” Ronan said.

He was not there to see it happen, but he confirmed something else his sister had claimed. Woody Allen, both children agree, would climb into Dylan’s bed at night and force her to suck his thumb.

1. The Kids in Super 8 and School of Rock Were Cast by a Convicted Pedophile

The kids in some of the most successful movies of the past 15 years were hand-picked by Jason James Murphy — a convicted pedophile.

Before he became a casting director, Murphy lived in Seattle, where, according to court papers, he became “obsessed” and “in love with” an elementary school boy. Murphy tried to lure the young boy away, promising they would live together in London. Then he took it even further.

In 1996, Murphy disguised himself as a woman and kidnapped the child. He put him on a plane, flew him off to New York City, and kept him in a shared hotel room. The boy was only rescued when a hotel clerk saw their faces on America’s Most Wanted and called the cops.

Five years later, though, Murphy was back on the streets — and, pretty soon, was working as a casting director. After being convicted for kidnapping and molestation, he was hired to cast the kids in School of Rock, Super 8, and more. He spent a year in the industry scouting kids before somebody actually took the time to look into who he was — and just how dangerous he could be.

Current Sea Ice


I noticed an odd report that overstated the ice situation and this woke me up to put up an update.   This year, the north west passage has remain closed off and quite badly as well.  No one is going through there this year.  In fact it would be challenging for a viking long boat as well although the southern route is reachable and it is clear.

Yet the total ice cover remains close to the now established 2008 - 2018 channel to keep that fully intact.  The Russian route is also wide open and you could sail a fleet through there.

The restoration of Medieval sea ice conditions continues and that particular cycle lasted several centuries and allowed a steady  movement of support and trade between Greenland and Vinland which was the Cowichan valley on Vancouver Island.

Considering that it should also be quite apparent that they also established meaningful Walrus hunting bases on Ungava and through to Hudson Bay.  It is also plausible that they built out a community in James Bay far earlier than their actual abandonment of Greenland.  Thus actual abandonment, although necessarily organized and taking at least two seasons was also well fed through the walrus hunt.  At the same time they would have used their shipping to move as many as possible to New England which could not absorb more than a few hundred from a population reported to be 10,000.  The walrus hunt was close by and a handful of ships could move hundreds every week to Ungava.


Current State of the Sea Ice Cover

J. C. Comiso, C. L. Parkinson, T. Markus, D. J. Cavalieri and R. Gersten
The sea ice cover is one of the key components of the polar climate system. It has been a focus of attention in recent years, largely because of a strong decrease in the Arctic sea ice cover and modeling results that indicate that global warming could be amplified in the Arctic on account of ice-albedo feedback. This results from the high reflectivity (albedo) of the sea ice compared to ice-free waters. A satellite-based data record starting in late 1978 shows that indeed rapid changes have been occurring in the Arctic, where the ice coverage has been declining at a substantial rate. In contrast, in the Antarctic the sea ice coverage has been increasing although at a lesser rate than the decreases in the Arctic. Shown below are up-to-date satellite observations of the sea ice covers of both the Arctic and the Antarctic, along with comparisons with the historical satellite record of more than 37 years. The plots and color-coded maps are chosen to provide information about the current state of the sea ice cover and how the most current daily data available compare with the record lows and record highs for the same date during the satellite era. Sea ice concentration is the percent areal coverage of ice within the data element (grid cell). Sea ice extent is the integral sum of the areas of all grid cells with at least 15% ice concentration, while sea ice area is the integral sum of the product of ice concentration and area of all grid cells with at least 15% ice concentration. The dashed vertical line indicates the date of the latest plotted and mapped data.

Mississippi Werewolf

Here we have the Giant Sloth again.  In this case it stared down its pursuers and let them know what it was.
It is also the certain source of the known werewolf lore.  At least we are getting better identifications out there though no one except myself understands what these are.
It is also a proper warning to hunters to not work without a buddy system.  These creatures are not afraid of us and they certainly know what rifles are.  Yet they are stalkers and avoid direct confrontation normally although this one took the bull by the horns when he had no real choice..  .

Mississippi Werewolf

Friday, September 07, 2018

Chris in Winona, Mississippi called in to tell of a werewolf sighting he had:

“In the mid-80s, my cousin and I, we saw this, I’d call it a werewolf. We saw it on a gravel road but I was raised as a Christian so seeing something like this, it looked like it was beautiful but it was evil and it bothered me for a long time until about ‘94 – 1994. My mom called me and she said, 'They seen the same thing you and Elizabeth saw up in Wisconsin.' So I did a little research and it made me feel better. Like it wasn’t just me that saw this. You (Linda Godfrey was the guest that evening wrote the book Beast of Bray Road about a werewolf creature) being a real reporter and not being afraid to tell a real story and not just hiding it, like, I can’t do that, it would make me look crazy. I appreciate what you did because you actually helped me a lot because we saw, in 1986, in December.

I came back from Dallas to my little town in Mississippi where I was raised in. My cousin said, 'They’re having this Christmas party' and I said, 'Look, I want to see a deer. Because I hadn’t seen a deer in a long time so I’d been in the city. She said, We’ll take this poor house road, this little gravel road between these two main highways. And, so, we’re riding in a little Toyota pick-up, and the headlights hit what I thought was a deer, it was kinda hunched over in the road and she said, 'There’s one!' And she took off real fast with the bright lights on and we stopped maybe 25 feet from it, just thinking, it’s gonna run off into the woods and everything but it stayed there and it raised up and it was like, maybe, 7 feet tall but it had its back to us. And a little like rabbit or something, took off. I remember seeing it going off to the right and just for, maybe a second, it blurred. Kinda moved back and forth kind of like when you spin a top and, you know, you can’t see the pattern on the top because it becomes like a blur when it starts spinning. That’s why I think maybe it was from another dimension because it spun like that, I mean it kinda like blurred, then it stopped and then it turned around and it walked straight, not like a regular animal running in the woods to the left and the right to get away. Then it came straight for the driver’s side of the Toyota. I was in the passenger side and it was really, I mean it had fur, it had mud on the rump of it and it was wider in the middle, like you said, it was kind of leaning over toward the front, walking. The legs were, like, big, like a donkey or a mule or a horse but they were like a wolf, they had that backward look. It was an animal but I don’t know... I thought about it for years. I didn’t know. Did I see a spirit? I don’t know. It had the mud on it and it wasn’t afraid of us, like Linda said. For sure, it had a power, like, it looked at us like we were just stock piled in the road.

I think back now and, you know, it could have killed us if it wanted to. It walked right by. When it got to the front of the Toyota, it was a two little wheel drive, I was in the passenger side, it was so tall that I couldn’t see when it got close to the front. And it started walking right down her side of the truck and she looked up at this hing... she looked straight up at it... I couldn’t see what was going on, all I could see was the fur and the rump and all that as it came by her driver’s side window and she made this weird sound, like she was sucking air. Like she just looked straight. And I turned around and looked and as it walked by the back window of the truck and it just kind of, it walked funny like a dog’s legs on the back, you know, there are many different... when it (a dog) stands up, it looks like its almost crippled when it walks. it’s knees were backwards. And as it went on by, I thought, my god, you know, what is that? And it jumped up on a little sage grass bank and it kinda looked... It kinda cocked its head and looked at me just with his right eye. It never looked me right in the eyes, like straight over. I think I would have passed out. My cousin, when it jumped off in the woods, she said, 'That didn’t look right.' And we’re still sitting there idling. (Linda asks if its scratched the truck.) No, but it was so bold, it came along her truck and walked real slow. It wasn’t running or nothing like an animal, it just walked. It wasn’t afraid and I said, 'It looked like a wolf' and she looked at me and she said, 'So you saw the same thing I saw?' And she went to the preacher, she asked them, 'What was it?' He said, some people see demons, some people see angels. But for years, it bothered me so bad but when Linda came out with the Bray Road Beast and I started seeing sketches of it. I thought, okay, that’s exactly what we saw and it really helped me and I appreciate what you’re doing.”

Qanon Fisa Declassification

The shoe has finally dropped this Monday afternoon. BOOM # 1. I do expect that the coming revelations will reveal that the entire Russian investigation was a known and willful fraud. It may well have been done before where an inconvenient lack of facts stymied the use of the FBI's powers.

This will end the Muellar probe with a nasty bang.

I am also expecting two other major events this week. I included the Q drops for the day, but the first one addresses declassification.

Maple leaves may hold the key to wrinkle-prevention

i wonder how many leaves are needed to produce the extract.  What is certain is that this provides a legitimate basis for applying creams to your exposed skin in particular.   It we also have a legitimate reason for internal consumption remains to be seen.
In the event, we certainly have farmers producing the leaves.   It would be astounding if this became a major source of revenue driving additional expansion of the industry.
Curiously, fall leaf fall has always been easily collectible.  I should know.  What surprises though is just how light the resultant load happens to be.  I doubt if a single tree produces as much as fifty pounds of leaves.  Reducing for an extract is likely to produce mere pounds or useful product. .

Maple leaves may hold the key to wrinkle-prevention

Ben Coxworth

August 20th, 2018

As we age, an enzyme in our skin known as elastase breaks down the elasticity-maintaining protein elastin, causing wrinkles to form. Now, however, scientists have developed a natural product that may keep this from happening – and it utilizes maple leaves.

Based on findings from a previous study on maple sap and syrup, a team from the University of Rhode Island recently set out to determine if leaf extracts from red maple trees could block elastase activity. More specifically, they were looking at compounds called glucitol-core-containing gallotannins (GCGs).

In both test tube experiments and computer models, it was found that GCGs containing multiple galloyl groups (which are a type of phenolic group) were particularly effective at doing so – much more so than ones containing a single galloyl group. As a side benefit, these same compounds may also be able to protect skin against inflammation, and lighten unwanted dark spots.

The scientists have developed a patented formulation based on their research, incorporating GCGs obtained from summer and fall maple leaves and maple sap. Named Maplifa ("mape-LEAF-uh"), it has been licensed to Indiana-based botanical extracts supplier Verdure Sciences, with an aim to incorporating it into cosmetics or perhaps dietary supplements.

If effective on human skin, not only would it be a natural alternative to wrinkle creams based on artificial ingredients, but it would also provide maple farmers with an added source of income.

"You could imagine that these extracts might tighten up human skin like a plant-based Botox, though they would be a topical application, not an injected toxin," says study leader, Dr. Navindra P. Seeram.

The research is being presented this week at the 256th National Meeting and Exposition of the American Chemical Society.

Teleporting Red-Eyed Wolf?

This is important because what is described is an holograph. However you look at it it presents the same in three dimensions.  That does imply an artificial source.
We already are well aware of abductions and encounters and this fits right in.  We just do not know why bother?
Again that applies to the whole contact phenomena.  As better venues arise, more and more reports are coming forward on all these phenomena and we are all shedding our ability to dismiss any of this.  If we posit billions of non human dwellers on earth, hidden away from us, than this ongoing research activity is completely plausible.
One suspects this observer has forgotten a more direct interaction and that this embedded a powerful memory to over ride another memory...

Teleporting Red-Eyed Wolf?

Marilyn in Las Vegas called to tell of a bizarre sighting she had:

“I had a serious experience earlier in my life, when I was a teenager around ‘67 or ‘68. I was getting ready for bed. I was in the bathroom and all of a sudden I felt like someone was staring at me. I looked out the window and there’s this black wolf sitting up, just staring up at me. (Noory asks what color the eyes of the animal were) Red! This was big, like a wolf. When I looked out the window, it scared me. I turned the lights off and I peeked out again and it was still there so I went to my bedroom which had these windows, exposures to the north, to the west and to the south. I peeked out my window to the north and now the wolf-like thing had changed position and was now sitting staring up at me from that window. It scared me, so I went to the west window, out to the front of my house. It changed position and was sitting in my front yard staring right up at me. I don’t know, it just kept changing positions. I’ve never been so scared before in my life but I can’t help but think it was as you described Linda (Linda Godfrey was the guest that night) that it was shape-shifting or from a portal.”

Space-Based Missile Defense Can Be Done

Interception is no small problem  but can be done with a kinetic weapon.  You would require multiple platforms packing an arsenal of tethered kinetic weapons with enough control to actually chase and intercept at extreme high speed.

Explosive effects would be limited to producing a focused cloud of material but not even that unless very close.

The speed is huge and any lateral movement by the target will allow evasion.  Such movement every thirty seconds or so would be ample.  Recall it still takes minutes to close the gap and the speed is such that adjustment becomes difficult as well.

At least our sensing tech will now be up to it.

Space-Based Missile Defense Can Be Done

Sydney J. Freedberg Jr. writes, ‘Some 35 years after Ronald Reagan’s famous Star Wars speech, the Pentagon’s R&D chief said that space-based missile defenses are technically feasible and reasonably affordable.”

Hypersonic weapon (Raytheon concept)

Since Reagan’s day, technology has advanced enough that putting both sensors and shooters in space is not only possible but “relatively easy,” Undersecretary for Research & Engineering Mike Griffin said. What’s more, past estimates of the cost of space-based interceptors have been “unrealistically,” even “naively” high.

Specifically, Griffin told reporters here,

Michael Griffin

The US “absolutely” needs space-based sensors to detect low-flying hypersonic cruise missiles, a new threat that’s much harder to spot from orbit than ICBMs; and We probably need space-based interceptors to shoot down high-flying ballistic missiles during the boost phase, the period before the warheads separate from the rocket.

Note these are two different functions with two different types of targets. Space-based interceptors would not work against hypersonic cruise missiles, Griffin said. They fly too low, deep in the atmosphere, so any munitions you shoot at them from space would have to be hardened against the heat of atmospheric reentry, which he called prohibitively difficult. “It may not be a bridge too far, but it’s a pretty far away bridge.” Ballistic missiles, by contrast, ascend rapidly out of the atmosphere into space, so space-based interceptors would only have to travel through vacuum, which is much easier.

Note that Griffin’s speaking only about interceptors, missiles that shoot down other missiles. He didn’t comment on lasersexcept to note them as a promising possibility. (In the past, he’s told Congress he wants a megawatt-plus laser in space by the late 2020s).

F-35 firing AMRAAM air-to-air missile

Air-Launched or Space-Based? It is also possible, Griffin noted, for an aircraft to shoot down a ballistic missile in boost phase. The launch platform could be either a manned fighter — the stealthy F-35has gotten a lot of attention, but the older F-15 could do the job as well, he said — or an unmanned drone — which he said might be “more cost-effective” than a manned fighter. (Griffin didn’t go into details, but unmanned aircraft can dispense with bulky, costly life support systems and can stay aloft longer than a human can endure). Such an airborne boost phase intercept would require modifying current air-to-air missiles such as the AMRAAM to take on new types of targets, Griffin said. But that’s entirely doable against “limited threats,” he said, and in a shorter timeframe than developing a space-based interceptor.

(For those who need a reminder, an F-15 fired an anti-satellite weapon and successfully destroyed an American bird in September 1985. Shooting down a satellite isn’t quite the same as hitting a ballistic missile in flight, but there are similarities.)

Qanon Heads up for Thursday

Various tidbits here.  Not only are we having a communication test on Thursday, but it appears that the supreme court vote will also be held on that day.  What it does mean is that the President can actually address the whole population on that day and thereafter on this emergency system.  How about sending out Executive Orders?

How about launching those arrests that day? Other events should also happen between today and Thursday including the release of redacted documents.

 Without question, the arrest of 55,000 will be historic.  And the only thing that is certain in terms of this flood of data is that those sealed indictments exist.  The rest we need to be aware of in order to avoid been shocked but we do not need to know at all.  What we have is a list of expectations and an opposition that is becoming steadily quieter..
