A Trojan Feast – Reviewed

Cryptomundo - Thu, 28/05/2015 - 12:34pm
"Before I get to the matter of what A Trojan Feast is about, it’s important that I explain what it’s not about. This is not some simplistic study of why Bigfoot likes to eat apples or aliens from Zeta Reticuli have a particular taste for strawberry ice-cream. No, this is a book that delves deep into the long and notable history of food-based interaction between us, the human race, and magical and supernatural entities from…well, somewhere."

Je suis PK?

Michael Prescott - Tue, 26/05/2015 - 1:37pm

There's a new Twitter trend: uploading videos of people trying to "summon a demon." 

The players place one pencil crosswise atop another pencil. After reciting the formula "Charlie, Charlie, are you here?" they wait to see if the top pencil will move.

In some videos, it clearly does move. Could it be blown by someone's breath or moved by a hidden wire? That's certainly possible. But the reactions of the participants (who start screaming and sometimes run away) seem genuine enough. Maybe they're just good actors. Maybe not. 

Since I already think there's good evidence for macro PK, I wouldn't be too surprised to see an example of it spreading via social media. 

In a way, it's the 21st century equivalent of the 19th century's table-tipping craze. In both cases, ascribing the phenomenon to supernatural forces, rather than to PK, could be psychologically useful as a defense mechanism. ("Fear of psi" may inhibit the phenomena, as discussed by Stephen E. Braude in this essay.) 

The fact that most of the "Charlie" players are teens may also be relevant. Teenagers seem more likely to display PK talents. Most poltergeist cases, which arguably are manifestations of PK, center on troubled adolescents. 

Unfortunately, since the Charlie phenomena appear to depend on spontaneity, they may be impossible to study scientifically. Setting up an experiment in a lab would probably make the procedure too formal and create the tension of high expectations. A lighthearted attitude — not taking the whole thing too seriously — may well be crucial to success. This was true of table-tipping also; it had to be approached as a parlor game, with the players singing songs and making light conversation. Again, this is probably a defense mechanism to deal with fear of psi.

Reminder: The Cannibal in the Jungle Tonight

Cryptomundo - Sun, 24/05/2015 - 4:52pm
Animal Planet's dramatic story is an imaginative leap inspired by real science. In 2004, a study in the journal Nature announced the discovery of bones of an entirely new, remarkable species of humans. Fully grown adults stood only three feet tall, yet they were able to thrive in the chaotic and dangerous world that surrounded them. The new species was nicknamed "Hobbits," after J.R.R. Tolkien's diminutive heroes. These real hobbits are purported to have lived less than 20,000 years ago, which would make them the last other species of human to live alongside ourselves. But did these hobbits fully go extinct? Later, 60 Minutes sent a film crew to investigate the Nature article. While on site in Flores, the crew unearthed the local legend that the creatures may have never died out at all. Tune in tonight, May 24, 9/8c for the feature film premiere
