Alien was one of my first shenels (words within words, like nut shell and kernel), with lie within it; but seeing the above poster last week (usually seen in Mulder’s office in X-Files) in a report about UFOs and aliens I suddenly realised lie is right in the middle of believe too. Alien is a perfect five-letter shenel, and believe is a seven letter one!
Someone’s lying about aliens, but I don’t know who to believe! I want to believe though!!
*As I was linking to shenel above two of the three suggested pages were alien and believe! I remembered alien, but didn’t remember believe!! Then over a year on, they were finally linked together by seeing that poster again!!!
A cloudy day today, but the sun still shone through a gap on the horizon, before disappearing into the grey. A few bits of poetic philosophical thought from the last couple of days on Facebook:
Yesterday’s final post-sunrise thoughts:
Collected anagram evidence birth: threadbare – read breath. Reined in the berserk. Returning to Earth. Mountain trees sea surf. I think that’s quite enough!
A shenel poem (blending shell and kernel for words with another inside):
My h-ear-t has an inner ear, unwrapping the pea in the pod of communication you call s-pea-k, preserving them in a g-row-n row. (there was an appropriate image on Facebook, and here the alternative colour to black and grey was green!)
Don’t want to be a falien (blending fail-alien); mistake a message from E.T., give away proximity, possibly from Proxima Centauri: Goldilocks #1! Seriously, if E.T. is contacting me without clarity, it’s difficult to aprende… if they want me to pass it on or keep it secret; if its intentional or accidental; good or evil; trick or treat; I guess I’ll never know… unless we physically meet..!? P.S. Nice retro greenYgrey image for the new POP age leading the article!
3 Free E-Books
If you like some of the above, I’ve put my last poetry collection and the second of the greenYgrey fantasy fiction trilogy, which also includes a lot of poetry, into the Smashwords end of year sale, so the e-books are free to download and read until New Year.
The third of the greenYgrey trilogy is also free to read with an Amazon Prime account through Kindle Unlimited, and you can take out a free trial membership.
I am a Humanities/Social-Science PhD Graduate, disillusioned with human society, preferring to escape into the void of space, where I am an amateur astronomer… and agnostic alien accomplice!?
Little example of my thinking/writing being scientific rather than religious (like King Cnut, I don’t claim any power over nature… I am agnostic about it though… maybe it does sometimes… but to its own time rather than any mere human’s; and whether nature has a living mind , as in James Lovelock’s Gaia theory… so it could be reacting to its treatment, as a plant will either thrive or decay depending on its surroundings):
Facebook Thursday: Every sky has a sunlight gap. Little horizon gap allowing sunlight this morning inspired above adaptation of: Every cloud has a silver lining. Friday: As if to prove me wrong, no sky sun gap today; a pea-souper! Then again, every cloud doesn’t have a silver lining either!!
Saturday: Reading this MSN article I thought ‘how can we see exoplanets in other solar systems, and not possible ones on the edge of ours?’ Thanks to the glories of the www it was answered in this IFL Science article, summarised by this: ‘Looking for exoplanets is much easier, as strange as that may seem. It’s like trying to see someone in the silhouette of a window very far away, compared to seeing someone in pitch black much closer to you. As such, we know of thousands of exoplanets, but comparatively little large bodies in the outer Solar System.’
So that made me think again how little we know; not even knowing our own solar system, which is one of millions in our Milky Way galaxy, and the Milky Way is one of millions of galaxies in the universe. Theoretically, there could be aliens on Planet 9 or 10 in our solar system looking in at us, without us being able to see them. It’s a bit chilly out there, but they could be much more advanced than us, and developed ways to survive there; as we plan to do on Mars etc. I don’t know if there are, but we don’t know there’s not either.
There was a lot of such thinking, along with a fantastic fantasy fiction story; insight into the writer mind; and epic poetry mixed with zany comedy in XaW Files: Beyond Humanity!
Here’s four photos from a historic Stanningley, Leeds sunset, winter 2006 I think, a decade before the new POP (PinkyOrangePurple) age inspired by those twilight time colours correlating with the pop art travel quest theme of XaW Files: Beyond Humanity.
They remind me of some UFO film and photos, especially the triangular one with a light underneath, rumoured to be a new USAF stealth craft called the TR3B, featuring anti-gravity plasma.
Following on from the last post’s featureless face beauty I have a far from featureless face, which hopefully provides support and inspiration for those who don’t feel they have either.
I hear a lot about plastic surgery being done now that I consider unnecessary; but they are unlikely to listen to me, especially if they really think they need it.
Maybe this photo I took in Iceland is me showing I am over vanity; and consider the ‘light’ more important/beautiful; as the photo is not one I consider flattering to myself, and feature it here to show the light and ask if you think it is an orb or lens flare?
I honestly don’t know. While I’ve had some feelings/sightings of ‘supernaturalness’ that time wasn’t one, and I didn’t know anything about it until looking at the photo.
The sun was definitely shining brightly, which is a big factor in lens flares, but it seems much brighter and clearer than most lens flares I’ve seen.
The ‘weirdness’ factor is increased by the fact that I didn’t intend taking a ‘selfie’ originally. In the cold and brightness; I’d been on the icy fjord all day (about 10-5 in the short daylight) on my own on a freezing January day, having originally just gone out to buy food!; I accidentally turned the phone camera’s view around. I thought it was worth taking a selfie with the sun behind me, but didn’t see any ‘orbs’.
I’d previously seen Iceland ‘orbs’ in the Dream Wife ‘Fire’ video:
Please share or enquire where you want, as I’m not interested in making money from it, and just ask out of interest and public service.
As a Rich Hall fan and UFOlogist, I was excited to hear him unquestioningly state that a UFOlogist, Dr. King, had revealed the Mayak nuclear explosion in the summer of 1958, nearly twenty years before it was officially declared by the Soviet Union (1.10 in the video).
Hall has always seemed very questioning and criticising, putting himself out there on the edge of controversy, to criticise everything, including his own country the most!
So I thought that gave it more veracity. If it was just a King disciple who’d said it, I’d have questioned it straight away.
That’s also a lesson to everybody, not to trust anybody entirely; even those you trust the most!
Providing Doubt to Dr. King Claim
However, after reading more about King the last week, and relating to some of his thoughts and teachings, yesterday I found an article onsobifyabout Mayak saying it was reported in the Western press in the spring: ‘Although vague reports of a “catastrophic accident” causing “radioactive fallout over the Soviet and many neighbouring states” began appearing in the western press between 13 and 14 April 1958, it was only in 1976 that Zhores Medvedev made the nature and extent of the disaster known to the world.’ (sobify (.com))
I don’t know if King heard those media reports, or if he was in contact with Aetherius as he claimed, but it does create doubt, and I’d have thought Hall would’ve included that, as the diligent funny cynic he seems.
I wanted to believe, because I like the subject, and like Hall’s documentaries, and what King was claiming, and who he was (someone from my demographic pushing himself to the extreme).
My books were written with the same kind of questioning and edited detail above, learnt over a decade of higher education, spent on the edges of critical theory, pushing the boundaries of the system to the right and left!:
USA military release UAP (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena – alternative to sensationalist UFO) footage, declaring them real and the aircraft unidentified article on MSN.
My response, starting with a little (rude) X-Files wordplay joke:
Why did the Pentagon release them now?
For Fox Mulder’s Sake!
Chile released similar military footage of a tic-tac shaped UAP (UFO) from 2014 in 2017: available online.
Not far from the USA for us, and a short step for a bullet-speed aircraft.
Most countries in the world have many UFO cases, with some American documentary series collecting the most notable as those countries’ Roswell: Mexico, Brazil, Russia etc.
If they are alien, I don’t think they are more of a threat to us than we already face from fellow humans, directly and indirectly.
While I’ve been interested in UFOs since childhood I’d become sceptical in adulthood; putting it down to new military technology, such as stealth; and while writing XaW Files: Beyond Humanity (it includes a little X-Files reference, but not much UFO!.. but was investigating my own brain through the writing mind!!).
Ironically, the year after publishing that (X-Files returned during the writing!) I watched the UFOs: The Lost Evidence series on Quest, and its new cases added to old reinvigorated my interest. Ancient Aliens had a lot of good info too, but got a bit much with claiming everything within its theory. Then Blaze channel arrived, with lots more American series from the previous decade. Again, there’s a lot of good info, but a lot that seems sensational and unlikely.
My latest books, full of the mysteries of the mind, and my self-learning mostly through TV and online about science and space, turned into poetry and prose (but not much UFOs!):
