PseudoScience Friday: Saints and Shimmers


Well, I told you Annihilation was nonfiction. 

Did you listen? No, of course not. No one listens to me.

Even so, this insanely-rare albino lobster-- 1 in 100 million, allegedly --was caught off the "New England coast," which only narrows it down to several thousands of miles of actual coast when you factor in all the islands and such.






I am surprised he wasn't found off the coast of the Florida Panhandle, given the fact that 'Shimmy' (I don't know what they call him up in New England but he looks like a 'Shimmy') shares a color scheme with that whole "alien" business that we saw in the docudrama some poor souls actually still believe was just a science fiction film. (Sorry, poor souls. It wasn't).

Actually, 'Shimmy' there was trapped off the coast of Deer Island, where an ill-starred lad some of you may remember with the unlikely name of Orion once lived happily with his equally ill-starred family. 

Which also means 'Shimmy' was snatched just across the channel from Rockport, where an excitable Croatian fellow fresh out of Uncle Sidney's Finishing School for Sociopaths was dropping caps and calling down millions-year-old entities using spinster psychics locked up in Faraday cages.

2018 really is the year all the various tributaries converge into one great, big, raging river, don't you agree?



This is a remarkable story since you have a 55-foot fin whale beaching at Duxbury, which is on the shallow Massachusetts Bay. Massachusetts gets a lot of beachings but usually on the Cape (and on oceanside). 

That poor guy was way out of its usual waters and is yet another somewhat anomalous stranding at a beach that I spent a significant chunk of time at when I was a wee wane. I'd link to previous mentions of this phenomenon but, as you know, I am lazy.

My guess is that it's all because of the Navy running weird-ass sonar and ULF tests around Boston Harbor. On the other hand, UFOs. Then again, the Navy and UFOs running tests together can't be ruled out either.

Oh, I wish I were joking.



Wow, lots of activity around Hawaii lately. It all kind of started with that weird false-alarm with the missile and junk that coincidentally took place on the 32nd anniversary of the release of The Pink Opaque back in January. You know, that business with the sirens. Things have been a little tense out there ever since.


And another item from The Secret Sun's cetacean news desk: a sexed-up bottlenose wreaking havoc in France's Bay of Brest. Because the gods are inveterate Synchromystics. 

In a related story, a nymphomaniacal porpoise is terrorizing sailors in the Gulf of Testes.




Now I'm not saying this is in any way Shimmery, but you can't help be struck by the timing and the location. Red tides have been around forever but on the other hand, northern Florida. 

If memory serves, the Church of Scientology's HQ is in Pinellas. Is there a connection? Probably not. 

But then again, Aleister Crowley.




Awesome. I hope they shimmer before they crush grown men and swallow them whole. Horrible mutants should at least have the courtesy to glow with pretty colors before they digest you.



Yeah, that's totally normal. Thousands of bees swarming around a single dirty-water dog stand on 43rd St? Man, you can set your watch to it. I think 1010 WINS has a bee-attack forecasting app for Android. Or maybe it's the Weather Channel.

Hey, who's the wiseass out there saying he never once saw a single honeybee in Midtown Manhattan in his entire life?

Oh, wait; that was me.



This is awesome news. Just awesome. 

In fact, weren't we just talking about how what the world really needs is a good flesh-eating venereal disease? Then again, it seems to me that any STD gone untreated would start to get a bit hungry for your flesh after a while. That is, if those old mind-scarring filmstrips from high school sex ed are anything to go by.

Of course, this could all be total bullshit planted to advance some kind of agenda or other. Because the only worse liars than scientists are the science media. Still; interesting how Shimmery this microbe looks. Then again, Photoshop.

 Is there anything that isn't a hoax anymore?



I guess this headline is there to remind us why it's called Popular Science and not Popular Logic.

I don't want to infer the fine folks at PopSci are FUCKING MORONS ill-informed or anything, but maybe all these ubiquitous fuck-me apps like Tinder and Grindr and Tingle and so on and so forth have something to do with the explosion of fresh STD diagnoses.

Hey, you know me; I think a reclusive diva from the early 80s is an oracle in the classical sense. But I don't know, maybe it's worth a look. Unless you live in mortal terror of pissing off a potential adverti...

Forget I mentioned it.



Listen Science, I know you think you're all big swinging dicks with these kinds of stunts but if you really want to impress the world, turn off whatever gene that limits the lives of dogs (and cats) to such a heartbreakingly-short span. Don't get too crazy- let's start with 25 years. We can work our way up from there.

OK, get to work. Don't go poking those greasy little heads out of your labs until you get it done, now.



Hmm. Good to see Wired is taking a stand and publishing some real hard-hitting science and not just some not-even-barely-disguised product placement for an already-ubiquitous brand of entrainment coffee. Bold.

MEET STEVE



Oh... hey there, Steve. 

Say Steve, is it true you're not actually some new kind of aurora but are in fact some kind of arcane carrier beam for Cosmo-Demonic discarnate entities invading our biosphere and sucking away our very souls? 

This wouldn't have anything to so with CERN and all that antimatter bother, would it? Or the mock human sacrifices and whatnot?

Maybe something drawing in cosmic rays from--oh, I don't know, the vicinity of Vega-- and collecting them in giant particle accelerators in order to kick open some kind of impossibly-ancient dimensional gateway or whatever?

Just curious, Steve. Say hello to your mother for me.

    1. Actually, they're not related. Sharp rainbows happen when there's a lot of water in the rain, like, on a really strong storm. Auroras happen because of stuff much higher up, in the ionosphere.

      I'd thought I'd mention it because lots of people who come to this blog don't know a lot of science. I know lots of people think they'd do well investigating occult stuff by applying sheer intuition to it and nothing else but... doesn't work that way, in my experience. A maths background comes very, very handy. Just saying.

    2. LOL; MR you are trying to define an infinite aspect of a finite construct through 'science'?
      This 'math' you speak of is a 'language'; not of numbers but of NOTES.
      Multiple 'realities' based on multiple frequencies; the foundations of such.
      We are not talking about primary notes here; more than likely it is the harmonic signatures that are key here.
      If 'reality' is 'thought' based, then??
      Is 'thought' just 'math' to you?
      A good place to start actually.

  5. Just relocating to the surprisingly babeful and trendy writers' haven of Kingston NY, then discovered this two blocks away:

    Apotheosis of the "Mamos" (http://www.rigpawiki.org/index.php?title=Mamo) is next, perhaps. From mermaids we would find ourselves surrounded by air-maids. Notice the seven-fold feline mount. Cat ladies abound around here. Mammatus clouds are not uncommon either, in a certain season.

    Like you were saying, we are doomed. Nothing like a week of windfall synchros to stir a vague sense of dread in a man's heart. The Bosch "Tossimo" cartridge coffee maker in my AirBnB seems to know when it's got an espresso cartridge in its maw, and uses only a demitasse of water in that case.

  8. Oh you really gonna piss off the "Science is the New Religion" fanatics that's become militant critics within you comments as of late.

    I got something else to add into the mix of that "Weird Science" brew you concocted (Five bonus points for all that get the 80's movie reference).

    NASA aka Never A Straight Answer i.e. Occultists posing as scientists has been accused of a lot f chicanery in the past. Back in 2012 on March 11th there was a very strange phenomenon that happened at our solar system's sun. A huge super-planet sized orb that dwarfs Jupiter appeared at the Sun.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1VRoYCV58_U

    The Super-planet sized sphere i.e. UFO i.e. Alien Space was captured by NASA's own Solar Dynamics Observatory and went quickly viral among astronomy nuts and of course the UFO community.

    Now in all the history of the SDO monitoring the sun no previous phenomenon has ever been witnessed. Yet due to that video going viral online NASA touted out their "experts" claiming it's just natural phenomenon; "Unidentified Sun Object is Identified! A Little Black Spot on The Sun Today"

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=82l46fpd-ic


    ^^^^Keep in mind that phenomenon at the SUN has never been previously observed nor in the following years after 2012 up present has there been any repeat of that phenomenon on March 11th 2012 at the Sun.

    Of but that's not the end of that Weird Science tale by a long shot.
    The very next day on March 12th, 2012 at the Sun a huge Triangle c̶o̶r̶o̶n̶a̶ interdimensional gateway open up within the Sun; "Triangle On The Sun ?!?"

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jE4etk3U8gs

    ^^^^Yeah I know the "Science is the New Religion" crowd gonna claim sunspots form on the SUN all the time. Yeah but that one just happened to form a giant perfectly symmetrical isosceles triangle. Yeah sun spots do that all the time.

    Oh and now we come to the grand finale of our mini Space Opera. There are reports that the the telemetry data for the March 11th 2012 Giant planet sized orb at the Sun is deleted/gone/missing as if the event never happened at the Sun. I saw a video about a year or two ago mentioning that fact but haven't been able to find it on Youtube. It I come across it I will post in a follow up comment.

    1. Slight correction the super-planet-sized sphere detached from the sun on March 11th 2012 but was attached to the Sun for about 72 hours prior. Again no previous corona filament activity ever been observed like that event before nor since.

You didn't use any of your superior understating of "science" to explain why phenomenon at he Sun on March 9th - 11th 2012 that supposedly natural only been observed once by the Solar Dynamics Observation. It's been 6 years and counting since that event so if it's natural phenomenon then where are the recordings showing repeat occurrences?

    1. Sure, it's an ill omen. Just because I know my science, doesn't mean I'm totally unable to recognize a sign when I see it. Difference is, thanks to my science background I have no trouble working out what's probably going on here, while people free of scientific knowledge tend to believe all sort of wacky explanations. Biowarfare, for example, strikes me as unlikely in this case. Not that it couldn't be the right answer in other cases.

      And if you want to know what's going on here, that's an easy one, so I'll leave it as an easy exercise for you to work out. Anyway, if I explained it to you, you'd reject it. Because you know so well that occult phenomena have nothing to do with science. You can take the blue pill and stay in the Matrix, or the red pill. It's all up to you.

  13. Hmm.. I thought STEVE was some kind of transport mechanism for the men from Orion?

    "When the Aeon Sophia careened into Orion and sheared the template, she took a part of the Anthropos template with her, and the tattered streamer of nucleic dew was absorbed into the soft globe of the mothering earth. By shearing the template, Sophia caused the separation of the sexes and precipitated the conditions for mitotic reproduction in the human species, not a feature of her original dreaming.

    The tattered mesh drawn into the materialization of the earth was the female part of the Anthropos template, the Omega component. The male part, the Alpha component, was left behind in the Orion nebula."

    "The mother lineage of the variant kinds of Sidhe was the Kerali strain. Over time this strain came to be considered as one among others, even though it is the genetic matrix of all the others. Also called the Parthenic or “virgin” strain, it is the root lineage of all the goddesses whom ancestral memory associates with male consorts, the “dying and resurrecting gods,” Dumuzi, Thammuz, Attis, Adonis and many others. The dying gods were the Orion men, enamored of the daughters of Gaia — but that is only the lovely, romantic part of the story."

    "Enmity between man and woman first arose when male-type entities from the Orion Nebula arrived on earth, then a terrestrial paradise inhabited only by wild women, and hunted to near extinction the magical animals of the Goddess Gaia."

    "That neither the Orion Men nor the Sidhe recognized they were matching components of the same species template, yet sexually distinct ab origine, turned out to the primary cause of massive grief and confusion. But it was also the occasion for a long adventure of love and transformation. This is the chthonian romance.

    The Orion-based entities arrived on turbo-charged plasmic currents that brought odd turbulence to the serene skies over the white-domed animal pavilions. Their male-type bodies condensed slowly from the cloudlike magma of the Trapezium world, but they remained for eons gigantesque in stature and monstrous in their facultative endowment. They were driven by a roaring in their heads (later to be reproduced by the bull-roarer), a sound that engrossed them in the spell of hunting magic."

"weaver girl", Vega) who is on the far side of the river, the Milky Way. However, one day per year on the seventh day of the seventh month of the Chinese lunisolar calendar, magpies make a bridge so that Niulang and Zhinü can be together again for a brief encounter. The Japanese Tanabata festival, in which Vega is known as Orihime (織姫), is also based on this legend." - wiki

    3. on Lyra, wiki says, "It has been called the Manger of the Infant Saviour, Praesepe Salvatoris." by Julius Schiller.

      "A while ago a friend asked me, "Why is the infant Jesus depicted sleeping in a manger?" This question caught my attention, because after a good many years of deep immersion in mythology, I had not asked it myself!

      Upon reflection, I realized that the cameo image of baby Jesus in the manger was a cooptation of Tammuz ("true son"), the Sumerian shepherd. As a tender of sheep and goats, Tammuz sometimes slept in the manger where the flock came to eat. This humble image contrasts to his privileged role as a lover of the Goddess, Ishtar.

      The Greek equivalent to the Assyro-Babylonian Tammuz was Adonis. Legend says that his mother Myrrha was a tree, i.e., a tree nymph or dryad. One version says that Persephone, the daughter of Demeter (the guardian goddess of the Eleusinian Mysteries) became enamoured of Adonis and took him with her as she migrated through the seasons of the year. In other words, the human Adonis became entirely absorbed in the recycling, regenerating processes of nature, like a tree that changes with the seasons. Adonis' Sumerian counterpart, Dumuzi (identical with Tammuz, of course), was traditionally born from a tree."

We learned that as long as there's a good light-show for the public to focus on obsessively, combined with some nerdly science buzz words like "cosmic rays" and "electromagnetic effects of the solar wind" we could basically get anything off earth any evening we wanted."

      In Chinese, the asterism consisting of α, β, and γ Aquilae is known as Hé Gǔ (河鼓; lit. "river drum").[29] Altair is thus known as Hé Gǔ èr (河鼓二; lit. "river drum two", meaning the "second star of the drum at the river")" - wiki

    'Cooper directs and co-stars in this outrageously watchable and colossally enjoyable new version, supercharged with dilithium crystals of pure melodrama. He appears opposite a sensationally good Lady Gaga, whose ability to be part ordinary person, part extraterrestrial celebrity empress functions at the highest level at all times.'

    'Here is the heart-wrenching gallantry of the grumpy, drunken singing star teetering over the apex of his fame, who discovers an unconventionally beautiful, talented young woman – single-handedly launching her on a glorious career while his own spirals downwards, redeeming his own former arrogance with this magnificently selfless act. He must accept the fate of being the embarrassing loser and has-been, finally not even allowed to be the wind beneath her wings.'

    '...the crunch question is: how are Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper going to reinvent that terrifying award-ceremony scene...'

    'He has to be shepherded by his manager...'

    'Out of booze after a show one night, Jackson has his driver pull over when he spots what turns out to be a drag bar, where the boss lets a woman sing in non-drag: this is the extraordinarily talented Ally (Lady Gaga), who socks over a killer version of La Vie En Rose.'

    'Poor Jackson is fame 1.0 and he realises Ally is fame 2.0, and the crunch comes when he is humiliatingly bumped from a promised opening slot at the Grammys, singing a tribute cover to Roy Orbison...'

    'Cooper is arguably prettier than Lady Gaga, but she is the one who commands your attention: that sharp, quizzical, leonine, mesmeric face – an uningratiating face...', 'For all that it’s hokum, this film alludes tactlessly to something pretty real.

    1. Interesting news about Young and Hannah. For those who don't follow the atypical folks in the news and gossip rags, Hannah is allegedly one of the supposedly rare Hollywood autistics (Ackroyd being another from that general era) and Young has at least one autistic child, iirc. It was an entirely unsurprising match to read about above, though I'm glad KTV posted it.

    3. For those wondering about 'supposedly rare', 2% of humankind is Autistic.

      Delete
    4. Funny you should mention that, Morgan, as that percentage may significantly higher and "rare" in this case is a misnomer for something that has successfully evolved probably since the dawn of humanity as we know it. BTW, 2%, coincidentally or not, is the nummber often used for psychopaths. In both cases the numbers seem to grossly underestimate those able to conceal their true state successfully.

      Already the reported diagnosis rate (with all the admitted complications the word "diagnosis" entails) is over 2% for younger generations, iirc. In the meantime, late-diagnosis is becoming more common as awareness increases. I used to think some of the extreme numbers predicted for the future weren't believable. Now I'm not so sure anymore.

    5. I'm autistic myself and neither me or my hubby knew until our kids got diagnosed. We just knew we were different and our social skills weren't good for no reason. I know a lot of people like that that are undiagnosed. I think is likely as much as 10% of humanity is likely in the spectrum but it will take massive screening all over the world to catch them all and I doubt that will happen any moment soon.

    6. VMS - yup. Loads and loads of us get by well enough to never be statemented or diagnosed. I was statemented in the mid nineties, when I was about 11, and know a bunch of late diagnosed people, and some certainly Autistic but never-assessed folk. Of course many are misdiagnosed or diagnosed for consequential conditions in complete ignorance of what problem with society caused them. The problem usually being other people's Ableism and other abuses, rather than a personal defect or deficit of any kind.

    1. Your wish may well be granted.

      Have you ever seen a nuclear bomb go off?

      Have you ever seen men land on The Moon?

      Did you know that arch Freemason HG Wells 'predicted' the nuclear chain reaction in 1914 in a SF story?

      It was then 'discovered' in 1938.

      HG Wells also wrote about men visiting the Moon in 1901.

      A lot of money has been spent on the nuclear and lunar exploration industries...

    2. Tend to agree on the moon landing hoax. The fact NASA openly admitted they've lost the knowledge/technology to go back confirms this (unless this official statement is also a hoax)
      But nuclear technology definitely seems to be a thing, what with nuclear power plants and submarine engines and all that
      Are you saying nuclear fusion or fission isn't real or we just don't have the know how to harness it?
      Do you have any alternative theories on what the Sun or stars are?

      Delete
    3. Whether the moon is hollow or not, this does not impinge upon whether the landings were filmed in a studio.

      Similarly for nuclear projects - doesn't matter whether stars undergo fission.

      It stands to reason that stars are massive, and emit a lot of radiation across the spectrum. That's as far as I can get.

      They stage these things to divert masses of funds.

      To what purpose? That's the big question.

    6. GBoF, right there with you on the lost records and "knowledge" reference to the moon landing, at the very least, and agnostic on the reality of the landing. It's still remarkable exactly how much has been "lost" in terms of project records. It would likely make an interesting, and perhaps longer than expected, book should anyone have the urge to document exactly how much has been reported as lost or "unavailable." McGowan and others have done a lot of the groundwork already though.

    7. Wells was not the first to write about going to the moon without intervention from "gods". If you think about the gap between Copernicus and Wells then it would be extremely surprising if nobody thought about it in that time. The Man in the Moone by Francis Godwin was published in 1638 and describes a swan powered flight. Probably an inspiration for Swift's Laputa.

      Delete
    8. La puta, of course, means whore. Perhaps a veiled "white goddess" reference. The same chapter includes a curiously detailed description of the moons of mars-- a few hundred years before there "official" discovery. Only when Gulliver leaves his Master Bates can the true adventure begin.

  28. Chris, just a few minutes ago I had a weird experience with a honey bee. Literally just before reading your post. I work in downtown St. Paul. Not a huge downtown, but a mini concrete jungle nonetheless. I hadn't seen anything but wasps and yellow jackets in downtown before. I drove my car in and parked it in the morning. At that time I noticed said honey bee on my driver's side window. I didn't want to kill it because it was such an anomaly and the recent bee shortage and all. When I came back a few hours latter to move my car again. There it was in the exact same place. I thought it was dead so I powered down the window all the way to bump it off. The bee simply jump non-nonchalantly on the ledge of the door and turned to look at me. I just washed my car yesterday so there was nothing for it to eat on my window. Even after I slammed the door shut it simply stayed there but turned in my direction again. Never seen a honey bee act that way in my life. Plus, reading this right after. Weird sync.

    5. The desire to create a sustainable vision of heaven is always part of the human experience. We all know the culturally dominant visions of heaven that are based extremely loosely on Christian teachings by way of generations of fantasy fiction. Christianity itself is more pagan than "Christian" whatever that really means. I mean, maybe the message of Christ all along was that child abusers are the chosen people and should be protected at all costs. It's a Ship of Theseus type problem. Does the phrase "suffer the children" mean be to be patient and tolerant of children or to make children suffer? A surprisingly controversial point amongst those who stand against pagan values. Anyway, even with the best intentions, these bizarre and hard to foresee fault lines are ones that open up in any human manufactured vision of heaven.

    6. Anon5:58, psychopaths are the most useful servants (unscrupulous, mercenary, merciless), but not enough arise naturally. Thus those in useful positions (found lacking in moral integrity), are first compromised, then broken/corrupted into psychopaths. Bribery, blackmail, vice, child porn/abuse, and sacrifice are part of the process.

      Heaven/hell is just a variant of yin/yang. Christ is just one of many metaphors for the cross that describes the great yin/yang cycle (qv Saṃsāra).

      The mission to escape Saṃsāra requires many obedient and loyal servants.
