Psychokinesis



The term psychokinesis was also known as telekinesis, sometimes abbreviated PK and TK respectively, is a term coined by Henry Holt to refer to the direct influence of mind on a physical system that cannot be entirely accounted for the mediation of any known physical energy. Examples of psychokinesis could include distorting or moving an object, or influencing the output of a random number generator.


The study of phenomena said to be psychokinetic is an aspect of parapsychology. Some paranormal researchers believe that psychokinesis exists and deserves further study, although the focus of research has shifted away from large-scale phenomena to attempts to influence dice and then to random number generators.

There is currently no scientific evidence that has gone unchallenged that shows psychokinesis exists. A meta-analysis of 380 studies in 2006 found a "very small" effect which could be explained by publication bias. PK experiments have historically been criticised for lack of proper controls and repeatability. However, some experiments have created illusions of PK where none exists, and these illusions depend to an extent on the subject's prior belief in PK.

Legacy



Bishop Josef Stangl, who approved the exorcism and corresponded by letter on the case with the 2 priests a dozen times, also was investigated by state authorities. It was decided not to indict him or summon him to appear at the trial due to his age and poor health. The bishop stated that his actions were all within the bounds of canon law.

The courtroom case, called the Klingenberg Case, became the basis of Scott Derrickson's 2005 movie The Exorcism of Emily Rose. The film significantly deviates from the real-world events (for example, the film is set in the US, Anneliese was renamed Emily Rose, and the court case was shown with a substantially different outcome). The German-language film Requiem (2006) by Hans-Christian Schmid holds a much truer account of the real-life events.

Today, Anneliese's grave in Klingenberg am Main remains a place of pilgrimage for many Catholics who consider Anneliese Michel a devout believer who experienced extreme sufferings to assist departed souls in Purgatory.

Some doctors have suggested that many of Michel's 'symptoms' are consistent with, and suggestive of, mental disorders in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV-TR) section on Dissociative Disorders, and/or with behaviors observed in patients with these disorders. For example, the temporary adoption of bizarre, rigid body postures (dystonia); the use of the first-person plural pronoun 'we' to describe one's self; the markedly dilated pupils not explained by any external stimuli; full or partial amnesia; the emergence of distinct 'personalities' among the 'demons'; the pervasive psychoemotional 'numbness' Michel describes in The Exorcism of Anneliese Michel; Michel's feeling as though her body was acting outside her volition (depersonalization); fear or rejection of sexuality; the persistence of these symptoms despite medical treatment, and in absence of any known medical cause; and many others.

Exhumation


Before the trial authorities asked the parents for permission to exhume the remains of their daughter. They did so as a result of a message received from a Carmelite nun from the district of Allgau in southern Bavaria. The nun had told the parents that a vision had revealed to her that their daughter's body was still intact, and that this authenticated the supernatural character of her case. The official reason presented by the parents to authorities was that Anneliese had been buried in undue hurry in a cheap coffin. Almost 2 years after the burial, February 25, 1978, her remains were replaced in a new oak-coffin lined with tin.

The official reports (to date undisputed by any authority) state that the body bore the signs of consistent deterioration. The accused exorcists - Anneliese's parents and the 2 priests - were discouraged from seeing the remnants of Anneliese. Father Arnold Renz lated stated that he had been prevented from entering the mortuary.

Trial & Courtroom Charges



After an investigation the state prosecutor maintained Anneliese's death could have been prevented even one week before she died. He charged all 4 defendants (Pastor Ernst Alt and Father Arnold Renz as well as the parents - with negligent homicide for failing to call a medical doctor.

The trial started on March 30, 1978, in the district court and drew intense interest. Before the court, the doctors claimed the woman was not possessed. Although Dr.Richard Roth who was asked for medical help by Father Alt. allegedly said after the exorcism he witnessed on May 30, 1976 that "there is no injection against the devil, Anneliese."

The priests were defended by church-paid lawyers, whereas the parents were defended by one of Germany's most well-known lawyers, Erich Schmidt-Leichner, a lawyer who had defended numerous persons in Nazi war crimes trials. Schmidt-Leichner claimed that the exorcism was legal and that the German constitution protected citizens in the unrestricted exercise of their religious beliefs.

The defense played tapes recorded at the exorcism sessions, sometimes featuring what was claimed to be "demon arguing", as proof that Anneliese was indeed possessed. Both priests presented their deeply held conviction that she was possessed, and that she was finally freed by exorcism just before she died.

Ultimately, the accused were found guilty of manslaughter resulting from negligence and were sentenced to a 6 months suspended sentence and 3 years probation. It was a far lighter sentence than anticipated by most people. Yet, it was more than demanded by the prosecution, which had asked that the priests only be fined and that the parents be found guilty but not punished.

During the trial, the major lingering issues were related to the church itself. A not-guilty verdict could be seen as opening the gate to more exorcism attempts - and possibly unfortunate outcomes. But for the most part, experienced observers believed the effect would be the opposite - that merely bringing charges of negligent homicide against priests and parents would provoke changes and more caution.

Psychiatric treatment and exorcism



A stay at an unnamed psychiatric hospital did not improve Anneliese's health. Moreover, she began to suffer from depression. Having centered her life around devout Catholic faith, Anneliese began to attribute her condition to demonic possession. She grew increasingly frustrated with medical intervention as it did not improve her condition. Long-term medical treatment proved unsuccessful; her condition, including her depression, worsened with time. Anneliese became intolerant of sacred places and objects, such as the crucifix, which she attributed to her own demonic possession. Throughout the course of the religious rites Anneliese underwent, she took powerful psychotropic drugs prescribed to her by her doctors.

Anneliese was then transferred to a small asylum in Minneapolis, Minnesota that was later transformed into a residence hall at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. It is today known as Pioneer Hall. In 1968 she was transferred back to Europe. June 1970 Anneliese suffered a third seizure at the psychiatric hospital she had been staying in and was prescribed her first anticonvulsant. The name of this drug is not known and it did not bring about any immediate alleviation of Anneliese's symptoms; she also continued to talk of what she called "devil faces" seen by her during various times of the day. Anneliese became convinced that conventional medicine was of no help as it did not make her feel better in the least. Growing increasingly adamant that her illness was of a spiritual kind, she appealed to the Church to perform an exorcism on her. Although she was fervent about the potential help that an exorcism could offer her, Anneliese was denied by the Church. The same month she was prescribed another drug, Aolept (pericyazine), which is a phenothiazine with general properties similar to those of chlorpromazine: pericyazine is used in the treatment of various psychoses including schizophrenia and disturbed behaviour.

In November 1973 Anneliese started her treatment with Tegretol (carbamazepine), which is an antiepileptic drug. Anneliese took this medicine frequently, until shortly before her death, when she was unable to swallow anything.

On July 1, 1976 Anneliese Michel died in her sleep. According to Physicians' Desk Reference, taking carbamazepine may cause epileptic obnubilation ( a lowered level of consciousness with loss of ability to respond properly to external stimuli), along with fever and hypoxemia (lack of oxygen in blood). Anneliese had all these symptoms, which gave rise to the theory that the cause of death was suffocation. However, the autopsy report stated that her death was caused my malnutrition and dehydration that resulted from almost a year of semi-stravation during the rites of exorcism.

Anneliese Michel



Anneliese Michel was born in 1952 at Leiblfing, a small village in Bavaria. She was raised in the Small Bavarian town of Klingenberg am Main, where her father operated a sawmill. Her parents were devout Catholics and she grew into a deeply religious person. In 1968, Anneliese "apparently" began having seizures and was diagnosed as epileptic at the Psychiatric Clinic in Wurzburg.

Anneliese Michel



Anneliese Michel (September 21, 1952 - July 1, 1976) was a German Catholic woman who was said to be possessed by demons and subsequently underwent an exorcism. Two motion pictures, The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Requiem are loosely based on Anneliese's story.


Anneliese experienced what is recognized by medical professionals as severe psychiatric disturbances from the age of 16 to her death, at age 23, as a direct or indirect result of an exorcism ritual. Both priests who performed the exorcism and Anneliese's parents were convicted of negligent homicide. The Roman Catholic Church, which had authorized the exorcism, reversed its position and declared Anneliese Michel a case of mental illness. Many people believe she was genuinely possessed by demons., and her grave-site is a destination for pilgrims to this day. (from en.wikipedia.org)

The Exorcism of Anneliese Michel




Have u ever seen a movie called "The Exorcism of Emily Rose"?? I am very sure u guys ever watched that movie before. A story where a young teenager being possessed by some sort of demon or evil until her death. Well, it's actually based on a true story. A story was based on "The Exorcism of Anneliese Michel". I don't know who brought up the story but it's a true story.

Some say the girl was suffered from depression or whatever. Well, actually it's been a while I didn't update this blog because of my busyness and it's been a while also the story came into my mind. Now it's time to give u guys some info about this.

Hollow Earth



Hollow Earth is a belief that the planet Earth has a hollow interior and, possibly, a habitable inner surface. The hypothesis of a Hollow Earth has long been contradicted by overwhelming evidence as well as by the modern understanding of planet formation, and the scientific community now dismisses the notion as pseudoscience.

The deepest hole drilled to date is the SG-3 borehole which is 40,230 feet (7.6m/12/3 km) deep, part of the Kola Superdeep Borehole project, and thus visual knowledge of the Earth's structure extends that far.

Planet X Revived



The search for Planet X may not be over yet. The Kuiper Belt terminates suddenly at a distance of 55 AU from the Sun, and there is some speculation this sudden dropoff maybe caused by the presence of an object with a mass between that of Mars and Earth located beyond 55 AU. Patryk Lykawka, astronomer at Kobe university. Japan, claims that we will discern this object's existence or lack thereof by 2013.

Lykawka's computer simulations suggest that a body roughly the size of Earth, ejected outward by Neptune early in the Solar System's formation and currently set in elongated orbit between 80 and 170 AU from the Sun, could explain not only the Kuiper cliff but also the peculiar "detached" TNOs such as 90377 Sedna. While some astronomers have cautiously supported Lykawka's claims, others have dismissed them as contrived.

An alternative theory, proposed in 1999 by John Murray of the Open University and John Matese, Patrick Whitman and Daniel Whitmire of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, has long period comets originating from specific regions of the sky, rather than coming from random directions as proposed by Oort. This would result from comets being disturbed by an unseen object at least as large as Jupiter, and possibly a brown dwarf.

Planet-X: New Calculations Proof It's Really There!!


A t the Kobe University in Japan, scientists have calculated that a planet with at least 2/3 Earth's size, making a huge elliptical orbit is going to be discovered within the next 10 years! They came to this conclusion using computer simulations.

However, according to the Sumerian clay tablets planet X or as they called it Nibiru is bigger than Earth and the surface is not frozen but has vegetation and life. The tablets also say a race of humanoid beings life on that planet called the Annunaki, which means: Those who from Heaven to Earth came. It is written in the clay tablets that they came to Earth (which they called the 7th planet because they begin to count from Pluto) 350,000 years ago and crossed their DNA with hominids. They did that by taking an Annunaki egg cell and fertilize it with sperm cells from hominids in test tubes. That combination was injected in an Annunaki womb. Nimmah gave birth to the first human child. She named him: Adamu

Origin of the Discrepancy



At the beginning of the 20th century, many astronomers speculated about the existence of a planet beyond Neptune. Neptune had been discovered via calculations of the mathematicians John Couch Adams and Urbain Le Verrier to explain discrepancies between the calculated and observed orbits of Uranus, Saturn and Jupiter.

After the discovery of Neptune, however, there still were some slight discrepancies in those orbits and also in the orbit of Neptune itself. These were taken to indicate the existence of yet another planet orbiting beyond Neptune.

In 1905, Percival Lowell, a wealthy Bostonian who had founded the Lowel Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona in 1894, started an extensive project in search of a possible ninth planet, which he termed "Planet X". He hope in tracking down Planet X was to establish his scientific credibility, which had been dented by his widely derided belief that channel-like features visible on the surface of Mars were in fact canals constructed by an intelligent civilization. He performed 2 searches for it without success, the first ending in 1909, and after revising his prediction for where it should be found, the second from 1913 to 1915, after which Lowell published his mathematical hypothesis of the parameters for Planet X. Ironically, at his observatory that year, 2 faint images of Pluto were recorded, but were not recognized at the time.

Planet X



Do you believe that there is Planet X ?


In astronomy, Planet X is a large hypothetical planet beyond Neptune. It was postulated to explain apparent discrepancies in the orbits of the gas giants, especially those of Uranus and Neptune. Those discrepancies were resolved by measurements made in the 1980s.

The "X" in the name represents an unknown and is pronounced as the letter, as opposed to the Roman numeral for ten. At the time of its conception there eight known planets in the solar system; it was accordingly counted as a "ninth planet" in its initial decades, and then as a "tenth planet" from 1930 until the theory's demise in the early 1990s, and its is now generally accepted in the astronomical community that Planet X, as originally envisioned, doesn't' exist.

Although Pluto was discovered as a result of the search for Planet X, it is not considered Planet X. Neither is, Eris, even though it was at one point considered for reclassification as a planet under a proposal outlined by the International Astronomical Union. In popular culture, "Planet X" has become a stand-in term for an undiscovered planet in the solar system. The term has also been appropriated by pseudoscientific theorists such as Nancy Lieder and Marshall Masters.

John Titor Videocast Preview



Everybody knew that John Titor is a hoax. The reason why he made up all that stories is to get others attention who are obsessed with time traveling. The last post of John Titor was in 2004. He posted under the names "timetravel_0" and "timetravel_1". After that, he revealed his real name and admitted all that was an elaborated hoax. He then apologized for the mess he caused. Anywhere, here I give you John Titor videocast preview. Enjoy!!

Enquiry on the Story



An Italian TV program (Voyager - Ai confini della conoscenza) aired an investigation of the John Titor story on May 19, 2008. Mike Lynch, the private detective hired to investigate, found there were no registry traces, even far in the past, of any John Titor or Titor family; the John Titor Foundation had no office and its address is a rented post box; no tapes, recordings, or evidence of Titor were found; and only Larry Haber (advocate and owner of the commercial rights about all concerns John Titor) confirmed his existence. Lynch conclusion is that John Titor may be the brother of Larry Haber, a computer expert.

Problems with the Technology



The image of the laser pointer's beam being "bent" has the obvious problem that objects around the beam are not bent. For instance, the framing of the window visible in the background should be distorted if there was a large gravity gradient in the area, but it is not. Some have speculated the "beam" is an optical fiber.


Titor claimed that he was sent back to obtain an IBM5100 because it could translate several types of computer code. According to IBM engineer Bob Dubke, Titor's statement regarding the IBM 5100's little known ability to emulate and debug mainframe systems were correct. Supporters state that this information was not publicly available in 2000 or 2001 when Titor made his declaration. Titor himself stated that this feature was "discovered (or at least known after testing)" as late as 2036.

However, this emulation capability was widely known in the industry, and commented on in depth in numerous publications, both about the 5100 and programmable microcode in general. References to this fact were also available on the Internet as early as 1999, predating Titor's posts. This is fairly obscure bit of trivia, however, which suggests whoever was making the posts was familiar with the machine, or had an interest in retrocomputing.

Predictive Failures



The posts were met skepticism when they were being posted, but it was impossible to prove beforehand that they would not happen. Titor claimed the many-worlds interpretation of quantum physics was correct, effectively meaning that his travel was from a parallel universe and things could occur differently than he had predicted. This makes his claims unfalsifiable. The predictions have failed to come true in any case.

One of Titor's earliest claims was that CERN would discover the basis for time travel some time around 2001. This event did not occur. An article about miniature black holes being created by CERN (a recurring theme, also described to Fermilab and Brookhaven at various times) was taken by some to be evidence of this claim, but these events did not occur either. Civil War did not break out after the 2004 presedential elections.

Predictions



The most immediate of Titor's predictions was of an upcoming civil war in the US having to do with "order and rights". He described it as beginning in 2004 with civil unrest surrounding the presidential election. The civil conflict that he characterizes as "having a Waco type event every month that steadily gets worse: will be pretty much at everyone's doorstep" erupts by 2008.


Titor claimed that as a 13-year old, in 2011, he fought with the "Fighting Diamondbacks", a shotgun infantry unit of Florida, for at least 4 years. However in other posts he described himself as hiding from the war. As a result of the war the US splits into 5 regions based on various factors and differing military objectives. This civil war, according to Titor, will then end in 2015 with a brief, but intense, World War III:

In 2015, Russia launches a nuclear strike against the major cities in the US (which is the "other side" of the civil war from my perspective), China and Europe. The US counter attacks. The US cities are destroyed along with the AFE (American Federal Empire) thus we (in the country) won. The European Union and China were also destroyed.

Titor refers to the exchange as "N Day". Washington D.C. and Jacksonville are specifically mentioned as being hit. After the war, Omaha, Nebraska in the nation's new capital city.

Titor is vague as the exact motivations and causes for World War III. At one point he characterized hostilities as being led by "border clashes and overpopulation" but also points to the present conflict between Arabs and Jews as a harbinger of World War III:

Real disruptions in world events begin with the destabilization of the West as a result of degrading US foreign policy and consistency..The Jewish population in Israel is not prepared for a true offensive war. They are prepared for the ultimate defense. Wavering western support for Israel is what gives Israel's neighbors the confidence to attack. The last resort for a defensive Israel and its offensive Arab neighbors is to use weapons of mass destruction. In the grand scheme of things, the war in the Middle East is a part of what's to come, not to cause.

Time Machine (By John Titor)



He described the time machine on several occasions. In an early post, he described it as a "stationary mass, temporal displacement unit powered by 2 top-spin, dual positive singularities", producing a "standard off-set Tipler sinusoid", The earliest post was more explicit, saying it contained:

2 magnetic housing units for the dual micro singularities
An electron injection manifold to alter mass and gravity micro singularities
A cooling and X-ray venting system
Gravity sensors, or a variable gravity lock
4 main caesium clocks
3 main computer units

According to the posts, the device was installed in the rear of a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette convertible, and later moved to a 1987 4-wheel drive truck.

He also claimed that the "Everett-Wheeler model of quantum physics" was correct. This model, better known as the many-worlds interpretation, posits that every possible outcome of a quantum decision actually occurs in a separate "universe". Titor stated that this was the reason the grandfather paradox would not occur, following the logic of the argument, he would be killing someone else's grandfather in another timeline, not his own.

Outline



In his alleged online postings, Titor claimed to be an American soldier from the year 2036, based in Tampa in Hillsborough County, Florida who was assigned to a governmental time travel project. He had been sent back to 1975 to retrieve an IBM5100 computer which he said was needed to "debug" various legacy computer programs in 2036; a reference to the UNIX 2038 timeout error. The 5100 runs the APL, and BASIC programming languages. Titor had been selected for this mission specifically due to the fact his paternal grandfather was directly involved with the building and programming of the 5100.

Titor claimed to be on a stopover in the year 2000 for "personal reasons", to collect pictures lost in the civil war, and was visiting his family; Titor spoke of his family often. Titor also said he had been, for a few months, trying to alert anyone that would listen about the threat of Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease spread through beef products, and about the possibility of civil war in the US. Titor also had expressed an interest in unexplained mysteries questioned about it by an online poster, such as UFOs (which in his time were still as yet unexplained). Titor suggested that UFOs and alien visitors may well be time travelers from much further into the future than his own time, and with much more accurate time machines than his own.

Titor's Posts




The first post appeared on the Time Travel Institute forums on November 2, 2000, under the name TimeTravel_0. At the time, the posts had nothing to do with future events, and the name "John Titor" was not being used. The posts had to do with time travel in general, the first one being the "six parts" description of what a time machine would need to have to work and responses to questions about how such a machine would work. Early messages tended to be short.

Soon after, TimeTravel_0 claimed to be a time traveler from the future and began making various descriptions of his time. As time went on he answered questions posted in the forum, and started to reveal a more complex picture of the future. Although most of his posts concerned the state of the world in the future, Titor also responded to questions both in the forums and in IRC, and sometimes posted images purporting to be the time travel device, or its manual. He also sometimes talked about more current events, for instance, in an early post he stated that "The breakthrough that will allow for [time travel] technology will occur within a year or so [2001] when CERN brings their larger facility online".

The name "John Titor" was not introduced until January 2001 when TimeTravel_0 began posting at the Art Bell BBS Forums (which required a name, real or not, to sign up for an account). The Titor posts ended in late March 2001. Eventually, a number of the threads became corrupted, but Titor's posts had been saved on peoples' hard drives and were copied to Anomalies.net along with new discussions of the science behind Titor's time traveling as well as his predictions. Around 2003, various websites reproduced Titor's posts, re-arranging them into narratives. Not all refer to the original dates posted.

On numerous occasions Titor posted comments that appeared to be tongue-in-cheek. For instance, when asked why his images were of such low quality, he replied he was not a photographer. When asked if "Titor" was his real name, he replied that it was "a real name".

John Titor



John Titor is the name used on several bulletin boards during 2000 and 2001 of a poster claiming to be a time traveler from the year 2036. In these posts he made numerous predictions (a number of them vague, some quite specific about events in the near future, starting with events in 2004. He described a drastically changed future in which the United States had broken into 5 smaller regions, the environment and infrastructure had been devastated by a nuclear attack, and most other world powers had been destroyed.

Titor's posts sparked an intense debate on the Internet, with some people dismissing the claims and others defending them. In the time since Titor left the forums, the predictions for events that were supposed to occur by now have all failed to occur. Nevertheless, the Titor postings still have their supporters, who are quick to explain away these predictive failings.

To date, the story has been retold on numerous websites, in a book and in a play. He has also been discussed occasionally on the radio show Coast to Coast AM. In this respect, the Titor story may be unique in terms of broad appeal from an originally limited medium, an Internet discussion board.

Is Time Travel Possible?


Is Time Travel possible? Theoretical physicist and 2057 host Michio Kaku explores the possibilities. Some people said Time Travel is possible because time is relative to an observer based on his position and speed. If you are moving faster, time is slower. Time is the 4th dimension and you have to pass through the 4th dimension to accomplish time time travel. It is the same as time dilation. The speed of light is constant and time relies on the speed of light.

The Time Traveller: Fake or Real?


This guy claimed that he has met himself in the future. Is it possible to travel in the future or he just wanted to get people's attention by making fake story. He told that he "went to the future" and recorded him and himself at the age 70. In theory, it could be possible and a scientist would have to say nothing is impossible. But if he really "went to the future" he should show more proof so that people will believe him and not only showing his tattoo.

Non-Physics Based Experiments



Several experiments have been carried out to try to entice future humans, who might invent time travel technology, to come back and demonstrate it to people of the present time. Events such as Perth's Destination Day or MIT's Time Traveler Convention heavily publicized permanent "advertisements" of a meeting time and place for future time travelers to meet. These experiments only stood the possibility of generating a positive result demonstrating the existence of time travel, but have failed so far - no time travelers are known to have the meeting time and place in a parallel universe. Another factor is that for all the time travel devices considered under current physics (such as those that operate using wormholes), it is impossible to travel back to before the time machine was actually made.

Time Travel And The Anthropic Principle



It has been suggested bu physicists such as Max Tegmark that the absence of time travel and the existence of causality might due to the anthropic principle. The argument is that a universe which allows for time travel and closed time-like loops in one in which intelligence could not evolve because it would be impossible for a being to sort events in a past and future or to make predictions or comprehend the world around them.

Special Spacetime Geometries



The general theory of relativity extends the special theory to cover gravity, illustrating it in terms of curvature in spacetime cause by mass-energy and the flow of momentum. General relativity describes the universe under a system of field equations, and there exist solutions to these equations that permit what are called "closed time-like curves", and hence time travel into the past. The first of these was proposed by Kurt Godel, a solution known as the Godel metric, but his (and many others) example requires the universe to have physical characteristics that it does not appear to have. Whether general relativity forbids closed time-like curves for all realistic conditions is unknown.

The "present" view



Presentism holds that neither the future nor the past exist - that the only things that exist are present things, and there are no non-present objects. Some have taken presentism to indicate that time travel is impossible for there is no future or past to travel to; however, recently some presentists have argued that although past and future objects do not exist, there can still be definite truths about past and future events, and that it is possible that a future truth about the time traveler deciding to return to the present date could explain the time traveler's actual presence is the present. This view is contested by another contemporary advocate of presentism, Craig Bourne, in his recent book " A Future for Presentism" although for substantially different (and more complex) reasons. In any case, the relativity of simultaneity in modern physics is generally understood to cast serious doubt on presentism and to favor the view known as four dimensionalism (closely related to the idea of block time) in which past, present and future events all coexist in a single spacetime.

The theory of general relativity does suggest scientific grounds for thinking backwards time travel could be possible in certain unusual scenarios, although arguments from semiclassical gravity suggest that when quantum effects are incorporated into general relativity, these loopholes may be closed. These semiclassical arguments led Hawking to formulate the chronology protection conjecture, suggesting that the fundamental laws of nature prevent time travel, but physicists cannot come to a definite judgment on the issue without a theory of quantum gravity to join quantum mechanics and general relativity into a completely unified theory.

Tourism In Time



Stephen Hawking once suggested that the absence of tourists from the future constitutes an argument against the existence of time travel (a variant of the Fermi paradox). Of course this would not prove that time physically impossible, since it might be that time travel is physically possible but that it is never in fact developed (or was cautiously never used); and even if it is developed, Hawking notes elsewhere that time travel might only be possible in a region of spacetime that is warped in the right way, and that if we cannot create such a region until the future, then time travelers would not be able to travel back before that date, so "This picture would explain why we haven't been over run by tourists from the future. Carl Sagan also once suggested the possibility that time travelers could be here, but are disguising their existence or are not recognized as time travelers.

Time Travel In Theory




Some theories most notably special and general relativity, suggest that suitable geometries of spacetime, or specific types of motion in space, might allow time travel into the past and future if these geometries or motions are possible. In technical papers physicists generally avoid the commonplace language of "moving" or "traveling" through time ("movement" normally refers only to a change in spatial position as the time coordinate is varied), and instead discuss the possibility of closed timelike curves, which are wordlines that form closed loops in spacetime, allowing objects to return to their own past. There are known to be solutions to the equations of general relativity that describe spacetimes which contain closed timelike curves, but the physical plausibility of these solutions is uncertain.

Time Travel



Time Travel is the concept of moving between different moments in time in a manner analogous to moving between different points in space, either sending objects (or in some cases just information) backwards in time to a moment before the present, or sending objects forward from the present ti the future without the need to experience the intervening period ( at least not at the normal rate). Some interpretations of time travel also suggest that traveling backwards in time might take one to a parallel universe whose history could begin to diverge from the traveler's history after the moment the traveler arrived in the past.

Although time travel has been a common plot device in fiction since the 19th century, and one-way travel into the future is arguably possible given the phenomenon of time dilation based on velocity in the theory of special relativity (exemplified by the twin paradox) as well as gravitational time dilation in the theory of general relativity, it is currently unknown whether the laws of physics would allow backwards time travel. Any technological device, whether fictional or hypothetical, that is used to achieve two-way time travel is known as a time machine. (Taken from: wikipedia.org)

Mothman Sighting


video

I don't know whether this is real or fake because it was pictures slideshow and I can't say its fake or real. I grabbed the video from Youtube.com. It depends on you whether you want to believe it or not because we haven't seen the real footage of Mothman recently. But many people connect Mothman with bad predictions (when we see mothman, bad things will happen in a few minutes after that) and some say Mothman is Angel of Death. Until now, we do not know about the existence of Mothman.

Mothman Analysis




There are several theories concerning the Mothman phenomenon.


A large collection of first-hand material about the Mothman is found in John Keel's 1975 book The Mothman Prophecies, in which Keel lays out the chronology of the Mothman and what he claims to be related parapsychological events in the area, including UFO activity, Men in Black encounters, poltergeist activity, Bigfoot and black panther sightings, animal and human mutilations, precognitions by witnesses, and the December 15, 1967 collapse of the Silver Bridge spanning the Ohio River.

Keel's first book was the basis of a 2002 film, The Mothman Prophecies, starring Richard Gere, Laura Linney, Debra Messing and Will Patton, directed by Mark Pellington. A companion book called the The Eighth Tower, also released in 1975, was derived from material edited from The Mothman Prophecies by the publishers.

In conjunction with Sony/Screen Gems, cryptozoologist Loren Coleman claims to have served as one of the movie's publicity spokespersons, discussing his interpretation of the Mothman events in Mothman and Other Curious Encounters. Coleman created and hyped something called the "Mothman Curse", whereby researchers would be targeted for death adding more to the list in April 2007. Coleman's writings claim that early eyewitnesses never described a "moth" but a large bird. However, the only withness to date who still claims this description seems to be Tom Ury. Witnesses such as Faye DeWitt, Marcella Benett, and Linda Scarberry have repeatedly stated on national TV that the Mothman was half human.

Andy Colvin, a photographer and documentary filmmaker who claims to have seen the Mothman, has produced to books and a reality series on Mothman called The Mothman's Photographer, featuring John Keel and almost 50 witnesses. Colvin's sister took a snapshot of him in 1973 that allegedly shows a Garuda in the background. After researching various forms of Buddhism and certain Native tribes, Colvin's series proposes that both the Garuda of the Far East and the Thunderbird of the Native Americans are synonymous with Mothman, and that Mothman may be an archetypal "guardian angel" who exposes criminal activity at pivotal moments by sending visions, dreams and messages to ordinary humans. The Mothman's Photographer presents evidence that Mound, WV, witnesses separately saw the Mothman, aliens, the Dover Demon, the Virgin Mary, plasma figures, "intelligent", globes of light, and the Flatwoods monster in the same location.

One of the early theories is that the Mothman was a misidentified Sandhill Crane, which, in th elate 1960s had been a problem in surrounding regions. Sandhill Cranes can reach a height of 6 feet, achieve wingspans of 10 feet, have the general appearance described, glide for long distances without flapping and have an unusual shriek. Other recent theories suggest the possibility of the Mothman being a barn owl, an albino owl or perhaps a large Snowy Owl (based on artist's impressions of the mysterious, flying animal). Skeptics suggest that the Mothman's glowing eyes are actually red-eye caused from the reflection of light, from flashlights or other light sources that witnesses may have had with them.

The word "Mothman" was an invention by an Ohio newspaper copyeditor, after the first news stories of the "Big Bird" sightings appeared. (Taken from: wikipedia.org)

Mothman History




On November 15, 1966, two young married couples from Point Pleasant, named David and Linda Scarberry, and Steve and Mary Mallette, were travelling late-night in the Scarberry's car. They were passing the West Virginia Ordnance Works, an abandoned World Wat II TNT factory, about seven miles north from Point Pleasant, in the 2,500 acre McClintic Wildlife Station, when they noticed two red lights in the shadows by an old generator plant near the factory gate. The stopped the car, and were startled to discover that the lights were actually the glowing red eyes of a large animal. Terrified, they drove toward Route 62, where the creature supposedly chased them at speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour. However, as quoted in Keel's The Mothman Prophecies, the Scarberrys, despite driving more than 100 miles per hour, claimed to have noticed a dead dog on the side of the road, and in fact made such accurate note of its location that they have claimed to have gone back the very next day and looked for it. Explanations for how they were able to make so accurate a mental note at a time of such great distress, or why they would go back to look for the dead dog, are not included in Keel's book.

A plaque on the Mothman statue provides a version of the original legend: "On a chilly, fall night in November 1966, two young couples drove into the TNT area north of Point Pleasant, West Virginia, when they realized they were not alone." Driving down the exit road, they saw the supposed creature standing on a nearby ridge. It spread its wings and flew alongside the vehicle up to the city limits. They drove to the Mason County courthouse to alert Deputy Millard Halstead, who later said, "I've known these kids all their lives. They'd never been in any trouble and they were really scared that night. I took them seriously." He then followed Roger Scarberry's car back to the secret ex-U.S. Federal bomb and missile factory, but found no trace of the strange creature. According to the book Alien Animals, by Janet and Colin Bord, a poltergeist attack on the Scarberry home occurred later that night, during which the creature was seen several times.

The following night, on November 16,several armed townspeople combed the area around the TNT plant for signs of Mothman. Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Wamsley, and Mrs. MarcellaBennett, with her baby daughter eena in tow, were in a car en-route to visit their friends, Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Thomas, who lived in a bungalow among the "igloos" (concrete dome-shaped dynamite storage structures erected during WW-II) near the TNT plant. The igloos were now empty, some owned by the county, others by companies intending to use them for storage. They were heading back to their car when a figure appeared behind their parked vehicle. Mrs. Bennett said that it seemed like it had been lying down, slowly rising up from the ground, large and gray, with glowing red eyes. While Wamsley phoned the police, the creature walked onto the porch and peered in at them through the window.

On November 24, four people saw the creature flying over the TNT area. On the morning of November 25, Thomas Ury, who was driving along Route 62 just north of the TNT, claimed to have seen the creature standing in a field, and then it spread its wings and flew alongside his car as he sped toward the Point Pleasant sheriff's office.

On November 26, Mrs Ruth Foster of Charleston, West Virginia reportedly saw Mothman standing on her front lawn, but the creature was gone by the time her brother-in-law went out to investigate. Further, on the morning of November 27, the creature apparently pursued a young woman near Mason, West Virginia, and was reported again in St.Albans the same night, by two children.

A Mothman sighting was again reported on January 11, 1967, and several other times that same year. Fewer sightings of the Mothman were reported after the collapse of the Silver Bridge, when 46 people died. The Silver Bridge, so named for its aluminum paint, was an eyebar chain suspension bridge that connected the cities of Point Pleasant, West Virginia and Kanauga, Ohio over the Ohio River. The Bridge was built in 1928, and it collapsed on December 15, 1967. Investigation of the bridge wreckage pointed to the failure of a single eye-bar in a suspension chain due to a small manufacturing flaw.

Mothman



Mothman
is the name given to a being reported in the Charleston and Point Pleasant areas of West Virginia between November 12, 1966, near Clendenin, and December 1967. Most observers describe the Mothman as a winged man-sized creature with large reflective red eyes and large moth-like wings. The creature often appeared to have no head, with its eyes set into its chest. A number of hypotheses have been presented to explain eyewitnesses accounts, ranging from misidentification and coincidence, to paranormal phenomena and conspiracy theories.

The Devil's Triangle



Many theories have been given to explain the extraordinary mystery of these missing ships and planes. Evil extraterrestrials, residue crystals from Atlantis, evil humans with anti-gravity devices or other weird technologies, and vile vortices from the fourth dimension are favorites among fantasy writers. Strange magnetic fields and oceanic flatulence (methane gas from the bottom of the ocean) are favorites among the technically-minded. Weather )thunderstorms, hurricanes, tsunamis, earthquakes, high waves, currents, etc) bad luck, pirates, explosive cargoes, incompetent navigators, and other natural and human causes are favorites among skeptical investigators.

There are some skeptics who argue that the facts do not support the legend, that there is no mystery to be solved, and nothing that needs explaining. The number of wrecks in this area is not extraordinary, given its size, location and the amount of traffic it receives. Many of the ships and planes that have been identified as having disappeared mysteriously in the Bermuda Triangle were not in the Bermuda Triangle at all. Investigations to date have not produced scientific evidence of any unusual phenomena involved in the disappearances. Thus, any explanation, including so-called scientific ones in terms of methane gas being released from the ocean floor, magnetic disturbances, etc, are not needed. The real mystery is how the Bermuda Triangle became a mystery at all.

In conclusion, the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle became a mystery by a kind of communal reinforcement among uncritical authors and a willing mass media to uncritically pass on the speculation that something mysterious is going on in the Atlantic.

The Triangle area



The boundaries of the Triangle vary with the author, some stating its shape is akin to a trapezoid covering the Straits of Florida, the Bahamas, and the entire Caribbean island area east to the Azores; others add to it the Gulf of Mexico. The more familiar, triangular boundary in most written works has as its points somewhere on the Atlantic coast of Florida; San Juan, Puerto Rico; and the mid-Atlantic island of Bermuda, with most of the accidents concentrated along the southern boundary around the Bahamas and the Florida Straits.

The area is one of the most heavily-sailed shipping lanes in the world, with ships crossing through it daily for ports in the Americas, Europe, and the Caribbean Islands. Cruise ships are also plentiful, and pleasure craft regularly go back and forth between Florida and the islands. It is also a heavily flown route for commercial and private aircraft heading towards Florida, the Caribbean, and South America from points north.

The Gulf Stream ocean current flows through the Triangle after leaving the Gulf of Mexico; its current of five to six knots may have played a part in a number of disappearances. Sudden storms can do appear, and in the summer to late fall hurricanes strike the area. The combination of heavy maritime traffic and tempestuous weather makes it inevitable that vessels could founder in storms and be lost without a trace (especially before improved telecommunications, radar, and satellite technology arrive late in the 20th century.

Bermuda Triangle



The Bermuda Triangle is a strange and mysterious place in the southern Atlantic Ocean. It is roughly the shape of a triangle and it is said to have sucked planes and boats into its dark and murky waters. No one knows what happened to the planes and boats. When some enter the waters of the triangle they disappear forever.

In my opinion, people tend to think its a mysterious place where every objects that pass-by the area will be disappeared or in theory, sucked by mysterious force. For me, yes it is mysterious but logically its normal for the natural environment, but just because we were new with that kind of thing we curiously want to know or discover what's the hidden part?I mean we want to know what's the inside of the bermuda triangle. Why its triangle because if we look it from the map or radar (or what so ever), the shape is triangle.

But who knows one day people will uncover the hidden truth of the Bermuda Triangle.

The Bermuda Triangle



The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil's Triangle, is a region of the northwestern Atlantic Ocean in which a number of aircraft and surface vessels have disappeared. Some people have claimed that these disappearances fail beyond the boundaries of human error or acts of nature. Some of these disappearances have been attributed to the paranormal, a suspension of the laws of physics, or activity by extraterrestrial beings by popular culture. Though a substantial documentation exists showing numerous incidents to have been inaccurately reported or embellished by later authors, and numerous official agencies have gone on record as stating the number and nature of disappearances to be similar to any other area of ocean, many have remained unexplained despite considerable investigation.
