The New Mexico Desert Highlands

  One of the most iconic experiences on a drive through the United States’ southwest is a stop at the Four Corners Monument. You can put each of your limbs in a different state—Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah. But the beauty of the New Mexico Highlands is unique in and of itself…Enjoy. No video?

The Change

Turns out the movie Idiocracy wasn’t necessarily a work of fiction. I’ve lost count of how many times people have told me that movie is now reality when discussing the dumbing down of America. Personally I thought it was based in reality when it was released in 2006. You hear a lot about the sheeple mentality these days but instead of just seeing that as a term to separate the people like tea-party or liberal or conservative, look to see if there are actual examples of this in the world today. Is this a valid term and not just a label? Experiments have been done where a sign was put up in a city that reads something to the effect of “Line Forms Here” and people will start lining up even though they have no idea why or what for. This is a scary thought to any rational person. One […]

Neil deGrasseTyson

Below the Surface

I may get crap for this because there’s so much love for this man out there but I quit being concerned about what others think long ago. Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson in my opinion is not what he portrays himself to be. Or maybe he’s exactly what he portrays himself to be but most can’t see it. At this point he resembles more of a comedian than a scientist. He is a distraction spreading disinformation. He has been chosen because he has “personality” which in our current times is vital to get the attention of the masses. Albert Einstein did not have much in the order of personality. Neither did Nikola Tesla or even Carl Sagan, whose voice could lull almost anyone to sleep. However these individuals knew what they were talking about and gained respect and admiration based solely on their contributions. They proved, created, discovered or invented what […]

The Purification

The Great Purification

Emergence to the Fifth World “The end of all Hopi ceremonialism will come when a Kachina removes his mask during a dance in the plaza before uninitiated children. For a while there will be no more ceremonies, no more faith. Then Oraibi (Hopi village in Arizona) will be rejuvenated with its faith and ceremonies, marking the start of a new cycle of Hopi life.” The Hopi believe there are Nine Worlds. We are currently in the transition between the Fourth and Fifth World. Below is from this prophecy, also known as the Great Purification. “World War III will be started by those peoples who first revealed the light (the divine wisdom or intelligence) in the other old countries (India, China, Islamic Nations, Africa). The United States (Turtle Island) will be destroyed, land and people, by atomic bombs and radioactivity. Only the Hopis and their homeland will be preserved as an […]

Heyóka

Heyóka

There are some conflicting descriptions of what Heyóka are yet even these hold many similarities. Some tradition says a Heyóka is a trickster spirit, a contrarian, jester, satirist or sacred clown. The Heyóka spirit speaks, moves and reacts in an opposite fashion to the people around it. In Lakota mythology, Heyóka is also a spirit of thunder and lightning. He is said to use the wind as sticks to beat the drum of thunder. Other tradition says they are Indigo Children. A trait common to both is the backwards way of doing things as well as the visions/dreams and contrarian traits. The trait of thunder and lightning associated with Heyóka legend can be seen as more figurative than literal. Becoming Heyóka is like being born again (if you weren’t born Heyóka). This awakening is like being struck by lightning. The thunder can be viewed as the waves they make in the world by going against […]

The Blue Light

This is the story of an experience a friend and I had on June 14th, 2014. Obviously you can choose to believe the following or not. My job isn’t to convince anyone, only to pass it along in hopes that someone may have an answer. We know it happened the way I am going to relate it to you so convincing others is of no importance to us. I will leave out details from earlier in the evening that may or may not be relevant. I will however lay out the basic information to give you an idea of what led up to this experience. We were at La Posada in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Jocelyn had never been there so I simply figured she should see the place. Anyone who knows anything about La Posada will tell you it is a highly active space when it comes to the […]

The Brutal Truth About Orbs

On our page about cameras, we mentioned that there are two basic body types of camera construction : the all-inclusive box design created by the introduction in 1900 of the first Brownie camera from Kodak, followed by the SLR (single lens reflex) design by Nikon in 1948 with a design for looking specifically through the lens, which introduced new technology for better focusing and aperture control in photography. Then, in 1991, Leaf introduced the world’s first digital camera call the ‘Brick.’ Leaf was a small company later purchased by Kodak , and once again, it was a “box” design, although thinner, sleeker, and easier to carry. The technology of digital wizardry includes a different methodology for recording an image in what is actually a series of dots (called pixels), not much different from the methodology in which photographs are printed in newspapers, or a television displays an image on a […]

The Sangre de Cristo Lights

Beginning on January 20th, I started photographing the lights we see over the Sangre de Cristo (Blood of Christ) mountain range east of our house. Doing some research on several Internet mapping pages, this object is approximately 15 miles from us as the crow flies. We have also overlaid images taken of this light on top of a daytime image of the exact same location which shows the size of the main light to be quite large in relationship to the mountain and surrounding terrain. My best guess at this time is that the main light we see is easily 50-100 yards in length. This is purely speculation at this point based on the overlays mentioned above and will require more research. Equipment used: Canon EOS Rebel XTI DSLR with a 300mm lens, tripod and shutter release cable. The settings on the camera were as follows: F/4.5, ISO 400, manual […]

UFO Sighting

UFO Sighting – 12.24.2013

Exactly one week after my last sighting I was fortunate enough to witness another one in the New Mexico sky. This time I had a witness as Jari was also present. Just prior to this sighting, there were numerous unexplained events that took place inside the house. As we stepped outside to discuss what had just taken place, we looked up at the sky and saw what we assumed were the only two visible stars in the sky at the time. Venus was also still visible on the horizon to the west as we faced south. As we stared at these two stars, the one on the top suddenly did what would best be described as some type of power-up. It suddenly got extremely bright then disappeared in about one second. As with the previous sighting we didn’t have any recording equipment on us but in this case I don’t […]
