As said in the movie Prometheus: "Big things have small beginnings"...

It was the day before the release of Prometheus on June 8, 2012that a big thing indeed had a small beginning. The Oculus Rift - avirtual reality head-mounted display - was revealed to the general public at the 2012 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) on June 5-7. Tellingly the occasion came accompanied by a rare celestial alignment called the Transit of Venus, the biggest celestial event of the year. It was a "magical" time when things were very much in alignment. "As above, so below"...

~ Early June 2012 events ~

Oculus Rift first public preview...

2012 Venus Transit, as above so below...

As you can see, the Oculus Rift was largely hidden behind other flashier Transit Ritual events when all this was happening. It was a very small beginning of a very big thing.

*    *    *

Per usual, I'm going to approach the subject from a multicontextual/synchronistic angle, showing my own reasons for why I think it's a big deal.

Simply put, Virtual Reality (VR) is about to change the world, largely thanks to the breakthroughs made by a little Kickstarter-funded company called Oculus founded by a young guy named Palmer Luckey. (Oculus VR was bought by Facebook earlier this year, officially bringing VR into the mainstream.)

Numerous companies have tried VR before and failed. The graphics were too pixelated and worse the lag in the interface response time was making people sick. The technology was simply not advanced enough back then to do anything about it. It's only in the past few years that these issues became solvable by cutting edge technology.
Virtual Reality is being born as we speak. What's happening now... is the birth of a new world.

That's no exaggeration. Can you now imagine living in a world without the internet? The smart phone? After the birth and rapid spread of VR, that's how we will look back at the the world as it exists now, living without any VR to speak of around us. The original iPhone was released in 2008, look at how far we've come in just a few years. It's the same kind of big shift that's about to happen, with much more profound implications.

Cyberspace is amazing and real, but it lacks the immersiveness of VR. If you can feel you're living inside a digital virtual world, then who is to say it's not a "real" world? Who is to say this physical world we are living in is not a virtual world to begin with? And if it's a whole new reality that is being born via VR, as the name "Rift" was intended to imply (i.e. a rift between this world and the virtual world), then it is a "Big Bang" that's taking place now or about to take place.

Big things have small beginnings. A whole new reality has a small beginning too.

NASA Receives Signal From the Perseus Cluster That Can't Be Explained

Posted: 29 Sep 2014 04:00 AM PDT
Mysterious & Unexplained Signal Received From Perseus Cluster

The Perseus Cluster is 250 Million Light Years Away

2014 – Astronomers using NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory to explore the Perseus Cluster, a swarm of galaxies approximately 250 million light years from Earth, have observed the spectral line that appears not to come from any known type of matter. The signal they received can not be explained by known physics but they say it shifts suspicion to the dark matter.

Perseus Cluster a collection of galaxies and one of the most massive known objects in the Universe, immersed in an enormous ‘atmosphere’ of superheated plasma. It is approximately 768 000 light years across.

“I couldn’t believe my eyes,” says Esra Bulbul of the Harvard Center for Astrophysics. “What we found, at first glance, could not be explained by known physics.”

“The cluster’s atmosphere is full of ions such as Fe XXV, Si XIV, and S XV. Each one produces a ‘bump’ or ‘line’ in the x-ray spectrum, which we can map using Chandra. These spectral lines are at well-known x-ray energies.”

Yet, in 2012 when Bulbul added together 17 day’s worth of Chandra data, a new line popped up where no line should be.

“A line appeared at 3.56 keV (kilo-electron volts) which does not correspond to any known atomic transition,” she says. “It was a great surprise.”

“It took a long time to convince myself that this line is neither a detector artifact, nor a known atomic line,” Bulbul said. “I have done very careful checks. I have re-analyzed the data; split the data set into different sub groups; and checked the data from four other detectors on board two different observatories. None of these efforts made the line disappear.”

In short, it appears to be real. The reality of the line was further confirmed when Bulbul’s team found the same spectral signature in X-ray emissions from 73 other galaxy clusters. Those data were gathered by Europe’s XMM-Newton, a completely independent X-ray telescope.

Moreover, about a week after Bulbul team posted their paper online, a different group led by Alexey Boyarsky of Leiden University in the Netherlands reported evidence for the same spectral line in XMM-Newton observations of the Andromeda galaxy. They also confirmed the line in the outskirts of the Perseus cluster.

“After we submitted the paper, theoreticians came up with about 60 different dark matter types which could explain this line. Some particle physicists have jokingly called this particle a ‘bulbulon’,” she laughs.

The menagerie of dark matter candidates that might produce this kind of line include axions, sterile neutrinos, and “moduli dark matter” that may result from the curling up of extra dimensions in string theory.

There is uncertainty in these results, in part, because the detection of this emission line is pushing the capabilities of both Chandra and XMM-Newton in terms of sensitivity. ​

More data and investigation will be needed to confirm both the signal’s existence and nature.

A paper describing the detection of this mysterious emission line was published in the July 1st issue of The Astrophysical Journal and a reprint is available online.

Written by Tony Phillips Science at NASA Washington, D.C. – The Universe is a big place, full of unknowns. Astronomers using NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory have just catalogued a new one. “I couldn’t believe my eyes,” says Esra Bulbul of the Harvard Center for Astrophysics. “What we found, at first glance, could not be explained by known…

Is NASA Ready To Execute UFO & Alien Disclosure To The World?

Posted: 24 Sep 2014 06:00 AM PDT

Will ET Be Here Soon? NASA Brings Scientists, Theologians Together To Prepare

10,000 Galaxies Captured by the Hubble Telescope and Educating Humanity Logo

Looking for extraterrestrial life is akin to a search for a cosmic needle-in-a-haystack, as evidenced by the above incredible Hubble Space Telescope image showing approximately 10,000 galaxies.

In large part, thanks to NASA's Kepler spacecraft, 
more than 1,400 planets have been identified beyond Earth.

Library of Congress Washington DC

A few days ago, NASA tried closing the gap between life on Earth and the possibilities of life elsewhere. The space agency and the Library of Congress  brought together scientists, historians, philosophers and theologians from around the world for a two-day symposium, "Preparing For Discovery." Their agenda: To explore how we prepare for the inevitable discovery of extraterrestrial life, be it simple microbial organisms or intelligent beings.

"We're looking at all scenarios about finding life. If you find microbes, that's one thing. If you find intelligence, it's another. And if they communicate, it's something else, and depending on what they say, it's something else!" said astronomer, symposium organizer and former chief NASA historian, Steven J. Dick.

"The idea is not to wait until we make a discovery, but to try and prepare the public for what the implications might be when such a discovery is made," Dick told The Huffington Post. "I think the reason that NASA is backing this is because of all the recent activity in the discovery of exoplanets and the advances in astrobiology in general.

"People just consider it much more likely now that we're going to find something -- probably microbes first and maybe intelligence later," he added. "The driving force behind this is from a scientific point of view that it seems much more likely now that we are going to find life at some point in the future."

Among the many speakers at last week's astrobiology symposium, one has raised a few international eyebrows in recent years.

"I believe [alien life exists], but I have no evidence. I would be really excited and it would make my understanding of my religion deeper and richer in ways that I can't even predict yet, which is why it would be so exciting," 
Brother Guy Consolmagno, a Jesuit priest, astronomer and Vatican planetary scientist told HuffPost senior science editor David Freeman.

Consolmagno has publicly stated his belief that "any entity -- no matter how many tentacles it has -- has a soul," and he's suggested that he would be happy to baptize any ETs, as long as they requested it.

"There has to be freedom to do science. Being a good scientist means admitting we never have the whole truth -- there's always more to learn." Consolmagno also doesn't think the public would panic when or if it's revealed that alien life has been found.

"I really think it would be a three-day wonder and then we'd go back to worrying about reality TV or the crazy things going on in Washington -- that's the way human beings are. Because I think most people are like me: we expect it's out there. And our reaction would be, 'Wow, thank heavens. It's about time."

Earth is no longer the center of the universe, nor is it flat -- at least that's the currently accepted thinking among most scientists. And we now know, conclusively, that there are a lot more planets than the ones in our own solar system.

"The number of habitable worlds in our galaxy is certainly in the tens of billions, minimum, and we haven't even talked about the moons. And the number of galaxies we can see, other than our own, is about 100 billion," Seth Shostak, senior astronomer at California's SETI Institute told HuffPost.

Watch this video zooming and panning through the night sky to show 10,000 galaxies photographed by the Hubble Space Telescope.

At the NASA/Library of Congress symposium, Shostak gave out some startling numbers about how many stars there are in the part of the universe that we can see. "It's a big number: 10,000 billion, billion. And we know that most of those stars have planets -- 70 or 80 percent. If all of those planets are sterile, and you're the only interesting thing happening in the cosmos, then you are a miracle. That would be exceptional in the extreme. So, the middle-of-the-road approach is to say, 'You're not a miracle, you're just another duck in a row of ducks.'"

"The bottom line of this," Shostak said, "is something like one in five of all stars may have an analog to Earth. That's a lot of habitable worlds, and, indeed, the number of Earths in our own galaxy might be on the order of 50 billion."

Those are big numbers to ponder.

The D.C. conference included a great DEAL of discussion about the upcoming mission of the Hubble's long-anticipated successor: the 
James Webb Space Telescope. As large as a tennis court, this deep space observatory is scheduled for a 2018 launch and will orbit beyond our moon. The Webb telescope will focus on new planetary discoveries and collect data from the atmospheres of those planets, looking for certain things that might point to what we would consider possible indicators of life.

HuffPost asked Dick, an astrobiologist, for his opinion on the continuing output of UFO reports around the world.

"I try to keep an open mind on this. Ninety-some percent can be explained by natural phenomena, etc. The question is what to do with the other 3 or 4 percent," Dick said. "My opinion is that they should be studied further, on the one hand. By definition, they're something that we don't know what they are. They could be some physical, psychological or social phenomena that we don't know about. But I think it's jumping to a conclusion that they're extraterrestrial. I don't see that evidence.

"I haven't looked at the evidence close enough to say that there's intelligence behind it. But I've seen enough to know that there are unexplained things that we should look at more, and right now, the U.S. government is not doing that."

Billion and billion of stars, photo taken into black space by Hubble Telescope
Counting the stars in the universe  is like trying to count the number of sand grains on a beach, its not possible. Although estimates vary among different experts, the general consensus is that there are at least between 100 billion and 200 billion galaxies in our universe. Think about that for a moment, and now throw in billions of stars in each galaxy! (source) This number could very easily be in the trillions for all we know.

Take the Milky Way Galaxy for example, which measures to about 120,000 light years across (it would take light that many years to travel across the galaxy), and contains up to 400 billion stars. Again, that’s billions of galaxies that contain billions of stars. (source)

From David -- Higher dimensional physics associated with UFOs by William C. Treurniet

SummaryQualitative analyses of UFO photographs taken over many years found that a toroidal pattern is often in the space near the UFO. Other features in the photographs suggest the pattern is associated with strong magnetic and gravitational fields. This visual pattern may be part of a higher dimensional construct analogous to a wormhole. We know that the torus is a three-dimensional projection of a four-dimensional cylinder known as a duocylinder. The UFO may be able to restructure space to create such a duocylinder. Since the device would permit instantaneous movement in three-dimensional space, it could be called a "duocylinder bridge". Such movement has been observed in many sightings of UFOs where the objects disappeared and instantly reappeared in other locations, apparently without traversing the intervening space. In one case, the instantaneous disappearance of a departing UFO was associated with a strong, slowly decaying, oscillating magnetic field emanating from above the tops of nearby trees (Maccabee, 1994). This suggests the deployment by the craft of a magnetic duocylinder bridge that takes time to disappear after use. As observed in one of the photographs, the magnetic field altered the refractory property of air where the duocylinder projects onto three-dimensional space. A sequence of events consistent with the creation of a duocylinder bridge was found in a video of the failed launch of a Russian rocket in May, 2014.

1. Introduction

For many years, people have taken photographs of unidentified flying objects (UFOs). These photos are an unexploited resource which may hold important information. Examination of a sufficiently large set of photos may find that many of them have one or more visual features in common. A property associated with multiple UFOs may tell us something about what they are, perhaps a natural phenomenon or a technology of some kind. Even if some photographs are of unidentified man-made objects, these need not overwhelm the identification of a real phenomenon.

It would be ideal if all available photographs were taken under similar conditions. This has obviously not happened since the UFOs seen in photos are superimposed on a variety of backgrounds. Since we have no control over the conditions present when the photos were taken, any analysis is limited to the photographs that happen to turn up. It is proposed that a feature appearing in a significant proportion of the photos may have some physical relationship with the UFO. The correlation would not be proof of association, but would be sufficient reason to propose and possibly test theories about the nature of the UFOs.

2. Observed optical effects in photographs

Subtle features in photographs of UFOs can be rendered more visible with the well-known procedure of image equalization. A suitable FREEDescription: equalization plugin is available from Mehdi which is compatible with Photoshop as well as with the freeware Irfanview program.

Photographs of UFOs from multiple online sources were analyzed as they became available. The photos were taken with older film cameras as well as with modern digital cameras. Over time, it became clear that a significant number of the UFOs were accompanied by one or more toroidal or donut-shaped visual patterns nearby. In almost all cases where the patterns appeared, the UFO was positioned on the ring of the donut or just outside it. Since the torus is a three-dimensional object, it was often seen as elliptical in shape when it was not parallel to the frontal plane.

The photographs were all taken in the "wild" where the photographer had minimal control over the setting, so it is not surprising that the tori in some photos are clearer than in others. A selection of images is presented in the following figures. The left panel in each figure shows the UFO cropped from the original image, the centre panel shows the enhanced version, and the right panel shows an added graphical overlay to mark the location of the torus. The dates of theses photographs range from 1952 to 2013.

The usual focus of interest in Figure 1 has likely been the four large objects in the lower left quadrant of the image. However, there is also a small, relatively bright UFO near the upper right corner. The enhanced image shows that this object falls on a toroidal pattern in the air beside it.

The Construct

From David 

Where the Birds Go to Die


At first glance, there doesn’t seem to be anything particularly mysterious or significant about the village of Jatinga, India. Indeed the locale is beautiful, with lush forests and scenic mountain views, and Jatinga itself is a fairly small, rural town of about 2,500 people that is for the most part just the same as any other village in the area. Yet once a year, this rural hamlet becomes the setting of a bizarre mass death of birds that has for the most part gone largely unexplained.

The phenomenon occurs every year just after monsoon season in the months of September and October. During this time, just after sunset and typically on dark, moonless nights between the hours of 6:30 and 10 o’clock, flocks of birds representing numerous different species mysteriously congregate here in large numbers and plummet to their deaths. The birds circle spasmodically and violently crash into the ground, trees, and buildings, littering the ground with hundreds of smashed, broken bodies in a frenzy of flapping wings and death. Some of the dazed birds who survive crashing will get back up and promptly dash themselves against something again. Mostly the birds seem to fixate and hone in on light sources, such as house lights and torches, before crashing to their doom. 

The Lost Forest World of the World’s Largest Cave


The Lost Forest World of the World’s Largest Cave

In this technologically advanced age of Google Earth and ever expanding exploration of our planet, there are fewer and fewer places that remain hidden from the gaze of humankind. We are exploring the forests, mountains, and seas of the world at an ever growing pace, and the ancient places that once lied in pristine remoteness beyond our grasp are being uncovered for all to see. But what of under our feet? What of the lost realms of the deep places of the world? In the case on one massive cave in Vietnam, a lost, prehistoric world sat hidden for millions of years deep under the forest floor until pure happenstance started our first steps into a place that time forgot.
In 1991, a local farmer by the name of Ho Khanh was walking along a stretch of lush forest within the heart of the Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park in Quang Binh province, near the border between Laos and Vietnam. It was an area that he had passed many times before and he was not paying any particular attention to his surroundings when suddenly the jungle floor opened up beneath him and Mr. Khanh only barely managed to hold on as the ground crumbled beneath him. When he was able to get his bearings, he peered into the gaping chasm that had suddenly appeared out of the thick foliage and saw that there was now a steep drop where he had stood that descended down into darkness. By pure chance and blind luck, this man had discovered an entrance that had remained hidden from man for millions of years into what would turn out to be the largest cave in the world, a behemoth five times larger than the largest known cave at the time.
World's largest cave.
World’s largest cave.
For years the entrance remained unexplored. Locals were afraid to go near it, partly because of the dauntingly steep drop, and partly because of the strange roaring sounds that bellowed out from its depths, later found to be caused by a raging river far below. In addition, there was an eerie mist that seeped out of the cave, a phenomenon caused by the cooler air below meeting the hot jungle air above, which gave the area a surreal, unearthly atmosphere. All of these things conspired to deter the superstitious locals from entering, and so the cave mouth remained unexplored and untouched, just as it had been for countless millennia.
It was not until 2009 that members of the British Cave Research Association undertook an expedition to penetrate into the mysterious jungle cavern and explore the darkness below. By that time the man who originally had found it no longer even remembered exactly where it was, so the team had to ascertain its position from what he could recall and from other locals, who still feared it. It was to be the beginning of a breathtaking journey into an ancient, forgotten realm that no human being had ever set foot in.

How to Digitally Record/Video a UFO sighting:

Como registar digitalmente ou gravar um vídeo de um avistamento de um UFO:

Stabilize the camera on a tripod. If there is no tripod, then set it on top of a stable, flat surface. If that is not possible lean against a wall to stabilize your body and prevent the camera from filming in a shaky, unsteady manner.

Estabilize a camera com um tripé. Se não tiver um tripé, então coloque-a em cima de uma superfície estável. Se não for possível, então encoste-se a uma parede para estabilizar o corpo e evitar que a camera registe de maneira tremida e instável.

Provide visual reference points for comparison. This includes the horizon, treetops, lampposts, houses, and geographical landmarks (i.e., Horsetooth Reservoir, Mt. Adams, etc.) Provide this in the video whenever is appropriate and doesn’t detract from what your focus is, the UFO.

Forneça pontos visuais de referência para comparação. Isso inclui o horizonte, cimo das árvores, postes de iluminação, pontos de referência geográficos (como o Reservatório de Horsetooth, Mone Adams, etc) Forneça esses pontos no vídeo sempre que for apropriado e não se distraia do que é o seu foco, o UFO/a Nave.

Narrate your videotape. Provide details of the date, time, location, and direction (N,S,E,W) you are looking in. Provide your observations on the weather, including approximate temperature, windspeed, any visible cloud cover or noticeable weather anomalies or events. Narrate on the shape, size, color, movements, approximate altitude of the UFO, etc and what it appears to be doing. Also include any unusual physical, psychological or emotional sensations you might have. Narrate any visual reference points on camera so they correlate with what the viewer will see, and thereby will be better able to understand.

Faça a narração do vídeo. Forneça pormenores sobre a data, hora, local e direcção (Norte, Sul, Este, Oeste) que está a observar. Faça observações sobre as condições atmosféricas, incluindo a temperatura aproximada, velocidade do vento, quantidade de nuvens, anomalias ou acontecimentos meteorológicos evidentes. Descreva a forma, o tamanho, a cor, os movimentos, a altitude aproximada onde se encontra o UFO/nave, etc e o que aparenta estar a fazer. Inclua também quaisquer aspectos pouco habituais de sensações físicas, psicológicas ou emocionais que possa ter. Faça a narração de todos os pontos de referência visual que o espectador irá ver e que, deste modo, será capaz de compreender melhor.

Be persistent and consistent. Return to the scene to videotape and record at this same location. If you have been successful once, the UFO sightings may be occurring in this region regularly, perhaps for specific reasons unknown, and you may be successful again. You may also wish to return to the same location at a different time of day (daylight hours) for better orientation and reference. Film just a minute or two under “normal” circumstances for comparison. Write down what you remember immediately after. As soon as you are done recording the experience/event, immediately write down your impressions, memories, thoughts, emotions, etc. so it is on the record in writing. If there were other witnesses, have them independently record their own impressions, thoughts, etc. Include in this exercise any drawings, sketches, or diagrams. Make sure you date and sign your documentation.

Seja persistente e não contraditório. Volte ao local da cena e registe o mesmo local. Se foi bem sucedido uma vez, pode ser que nessa região ocorram avistamentos de UFOs/naves com regularidade, talvez por razões específicas desconhecidas, e talvez possa ser novamente bem sucedido. Pode também desejar voltar ao mesmo lugar a horas diferentes do dia (durante as horas de luz)para ter uma orientação e referência melhor. Filme apenas um ,inuto ou dois em circunstâncias “normais” para ter um termo de comparação. Escreva tudo o que viu imediatamente após o acontecimento. Logo após ter feito o registo da experiência/acontecimento, escreva imediatamente as impressões, memórias, pensamentos, emoções, etc para que fiquem registadas por escrito. Se houver outras testemunhas, peça-lhes para registar independentemente as suas próprias impressões, pensamentos, etc. Inclua quaisquer desenhos, esbolos, diagramas. Certifique-se que data e assina o seu documento/testemunho.

Always be prepared. Have a digital camera or better yet a video camera with you, charged and ready to go, at all times. Make sure you know how to use your camera (and your cell phone video/photo camera) quickly and properly. These events can occur suddenly, unexpectedly, and often quite randomly, so you will need to be prepared.

Esteja sempre preparado, Tenha sempre uma camera digital, melhor ainda, uma camera vídeo consigo, carregada e pronta a usar sempre que necessário. Certifique-se que sabe como lidar com a sua camera (ou com o seu celular/camera fotográfica) rápida e adequadamente. Esses acontecimentos podem acontecer súbita e inesperadamente e, por vezes, acidentalmente, por isso, necessita estar preparado.

Look up. Be prepared. Report. Share.

Olhe para cima, Esteja preparado, Relate, Partilhe.
