New Mexico – A Conspiracy Theorists Dream

For those that believe in the hard to believe, New Mexico is the epicenter for all that is considered anomalous as well as the heart of many cover-ups, black budget programs and conspiracies. For anyone with even a passing interest in the paranormal, UFO’s or clandestine government programs, many of the places you’ve undoubtedly heard and read about reside within its borders. With many strange locations, government installations and things that just don’t quite add up, New Mexico is geographically located in the perfect place in regards to unusual happenings and overt cover-ups. Tucked away in the SE section of the Four Corners region, it’s just out-of-the-way enough (and sparsely populated enough) to fly under the radar. Ranked 36th in population size with just over 2 million people, and nicknamed the Land of Enchantment, New Mexico is the perfect storm. The majority of the population resides in Albuquerque and Santa […]

It’s Not That I’m Ignoring You

I left Portland for Illinois on April 17th of 2012. I arrived at my parents house in a small town in order to help them move and tried to make the best of being there. At the time I left Portland, the daily levels of paranormal activity around me were bordering on ridiculous. A day without something compelling taking place was the exception. I was seeing entities, hearing entities, I was being touched, things were being moved, people I know were being visited, it was literally getting to a point where it was almost silly. Just prior to leaving Portland, I had been spending a lot of time alone in the basement of Kenton Station. Like a lot of time. I spent more time down there at night communicating with spirits than I did interacting with the living during the day. So it makes sense that everywhere I went was […]

A Paranormal State of Confusion

Paranormal researchers are serious about the tools that they use. Many rely on specific pieces of equipment to provide them the necessary data in gathering information for research that proves to be valuable. The problem is, technology keeps changing, it’s expensive, and worst of all, it can be very confusing. This article is going to attempt just a sampling of the technology that’s out there. This is to include devices that we currently use, have used, or plan to use. We will also discuss what is being used by other research teams and why. It should be understood that in order to conduct effective scientific research during an investigation, it is necessary to know what to use, when to use it, and most important, how to use it. Knowing what’s out there will help you to be better able to determine what is a natural occurrence and what could be […]

The Camera Design

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 cathode ray tube (CRT). Now you may ask […]
