Manifesting Mind Monsters


Many researchers of the paranormal (including myself) believe that some manifestations and poltergeist phenomena (objects flying through the air, doors slamming, etc.) are products of the human mind (tulpas or thought-form manifestation). To test that idea, a fascinating experiment was conducted in the early 1970s by the Toronto Society for Psychical Research (TSPR) to see if they could create a ghost. The idea was to assemble a group of people who would make up a completely fictional character and then, through séances, see if they could contact him, receive messages and other physical phenomena - perhaps even an apparition.

Dr. A.R.G. Owen lead a group of eight people from the Toronto Society for Psychical Research. None of these people were known to have any particular abilities in ESP, psychic, channeling, or other physical or mental specialties. They proceeded to create a person on paper, giving the person the name Philip Aylesford. The group created Philip’s entire life story: He lived in 17th century England, was married, had a love affair, and ultimately died by his own hand in 1654. Someone from the group even traveled to England to photograph the area it was said Philip had lived. Another group member sketched a drawing of Mr. Aylesford. The experiment began with the entire group meeting frequently to discuss the life and times of Philip as they would any interesting real person. Much time was spent in deep concentration, meditation and séances as a group about Philip.

After a year of continued experimentation, Philip began to make "his" presence known. Beginning with simple taps and raps the quickly becoming yes/no answers. He even gave factual answers to known historic events of his time. Soon after Philip manifested physical abilities. He was able to shake and move a table the group used.

Dr. Owen repeated his experiment several times with different groups of people and was able to create other manifestations including: Lilith, an 18th century French Canadian spy; Sebastian, a medieval alchemist; and very curiously Axel, a man from the future! All manifested very quickly after the experiment started and also communicated via raps and taps. At the beginning of the experiment, the stated goal was to eventually create an apparition. Though toward the end of 1977 they felt they were close to reaching that goal, interest in the experiment waned and activities were discontinued. - The Philip Experiment

Inspired by these experiments a group from Australia conducted The Skippy Experiment in which they created the persona of Skippy Cartman, a 14-year-old Australian girl.

Because of the results of these experiments, some would conclude that this proves that ghosts don't exist, that such things are in our minds only. Others may say that our unconscious could be responsible for this kind of the phenomena some of the time. Regardless there is no way to prove that ghosts don't exist. Philip was completely fictional...the spirit world was never contacted. This was simply a psychokinetic anomaly manufactured by the collective human conscious. The only certain conclusion is that there is much to our existence and beyond that is still unexplained.

In an interesting side note, after these experiments were started, the 'religion' of Spiritualism increased dramatically in popularity, especially in the United States, Canada, England and Wales. Spiritualists believe in communicating with the spirits of discarnate humans. They believe that spirit mediums are humans gifted to do this, often through seances and that anyone may become a medium through study and practice. They believe that spirits are capable of growth and perfection, progressing through higher spheres or planes. The afterlife is not a static place, but one in which spirits evolve. The two beliefs - that contact with spirits is possible, and that spirits may lie on a higher plane - lead to a third belief, that spirits can provide knowledge about moral and ethical issues, as well as about God and the afterlife. Thus many members speak of spirit guides - specific spirits, often contacted, relied upon for worldly and spiritual guidance. - Spiritualism in Antebellum America (Religion in North America)

I personally believe in some of these tenets...but defined a bit differently. True mediumship, in my opinion, is an instilled gift. I don't think that it can be learned or taught. I do believe that spirits are remnant energy that do have the ability to communicate as well as pass through portals (worm holes) between this world and other locations in our universe and possibly others. I feel that the afterlife is like a 'way station', where these life energies remain after they leave their earthbound environment. Some of these former earthbound energies evolve into 'helpers' for living beings...while other are integrated and merged with other living spirits. There is nothing religious or dogmatic with my theories...it's just what I have hypothesized after being subjected to the supernatural. Lon

Daily 2 Cents: Woman Thought She Was Dead For Over A Year -- Alien-Like, Elongated Skull Found in Russia -- UFO Hovered Outside of Window


A Woman Thought She Was Dead For Over A Year

A 21-year-old woman who thought she was dead for over a year during high school revealed morbid details of her ordeal in a Reddit AMA this week. “I thought I had been killed by one of my hallucinations, and literally thought I was a ghost,” the woman writing under the username “fishglubber” said in her Reddit post.

The woman says her doctors diagnosed her with schizoaffective disorder, which is characterized by hallucinations, delusions and other symptoms including mania or depression, according to The National Alliance on Mental Illness. The hallucinations she experienced were that of being dead, which can also be characterized as an extremely rare mental condition called Cotard’s Syndrome.

In 1880, neurologist Jules Cotard first described the illness, which he said drives people to think they lost organs, blood or body parts—or believe they lost their souls or are dead altogether. It is unknown how many people in the world suffer from the condition; “Fishglubber” estimates there are fewer than 100, although she didn’t offer evidence backing her claim.

Regardless, it doesn’t appear that “fishglubber” is the only one who has suffered. Doctors were baffled when a man thought he killed his brain after electrocuting himself in a bathtub trying to commit suicide. In another case, a 53-year-old Filipino woman got psychiatric help after she complained to her family that she was dead.

Here’s how “fishglubber” described her episode:

I died when my hallucination killed me. I saw my own body, lying there, dead, in the middle of the store. I looked around. More versions of me, dead, in various ways, everywhere. I saw dead people, and they were all me. It was in that moment that I “realized” that I had been murdered, my body was no more, and I was a ghost. I died in various ways, with my body from various alternate universes being pulled into that store, sometimes poisoned, sometimes stabbed, sometimes shot, sometimes decapitated, but always dead…

You think it’s trippy now, but- the hallucination who killed me was me from the future, who was consumed by her illness and wanted to stop her timeline from occurring, so she killed every version of me from any universe so she would be free.

The woman says that when she was “dead” she would unsuccessfully attempt to walk into walls. She was ashamed to eat or relieve herself because it didn’t make sense that she would still need to. She also recounted hallucinations before and during her “death” episode, which range from having a blue-colored boyfriend who spoke to her in puzzles to seeing a future of herself called “evil!future!me.” She took “evil!future!me” to the prom.

“Fishglubber” has since recovered from the condition and is currently writing an autobiography, which hundreds of Reddit users have encouraged. “I now know why they write ‘Rest in Peace’ on tombstones,” she wrote wrote. “Death, at least how I experienced feelings of it, is far from peaceful at times.” - A Woman Thought She Was Dead For Over A Year

Alien-like, Elongated Skull Found in Russia

The remains of a woman with an alien-like, elongated skull were unearthed not long ago by archaeologists in Russia. The skeleton was recovered from an archaeological site in the country's Chelyabinsk Oblast called Arkaim.

While the skeleton appears to be about 2,000 years old, the archaeological site of Arkaim dates back to about 4,000 years ago. In those days, it was a settlement of the Sintashta-Petrovka culture and covered an area of about 20,000 square meters (about 215,000 square feet).

Discovered in 1987, the settlement comprised a central square surrounded by dwellings. Walls designed to keep intruders at bay and protect its inhabitants encircled it. It in heydays, it was home to around 1,500 to 2,500 people. Read more at Remains of Woman with Alien-like, Elongated Skull Found in Russia

UFO Hovered Outside of Window

Toronto, Ontario, Canada - 11/1980: I had recently moved into a 5-storey building, occupying the top floor. Listening to the radio while unpacking at night, my radio started to malfunction. As I turned towards the radio, I noticed a glowing light outside (I had no window curtains yet installed on the windows). I put on my glasses, and walked towards the window. The window was almost completely floor to ceiling, with a large picture window in the centre, and two large casement windows on each side that I could open.

I saw a silver-coloured oval object appearing to rest on the rooftop of the smaller apartment building across the street. This apartment building was perhaps 3-storeys tall. The object was oval with a dome on top. There appeared to be opaque windows in the centre that were spinning.

Within seconds of standing at the window looking down on the object, it started to rise up to my window level in height and then move towards my window and hover over the road right in front of me. It had blue/red lights underneath I think because these colours were near its bottom.

I was in shock and at the same time fascinated by what I was seeing. The object had a smooth metallic surface, no rivets, bolts, screws or anything holding the metal together was visible. It was silver/grey in colour, not dull but not shiny either. The "windows" I call the row of white lights in the middle, under the dome were spinning. I looked at the windows carefully and then I looked away to see if my eyes would be affected similar to when you look at a light bulb. No affect on my eyes. I tried to see if anyone was inside, even opening my casement window and looking out. The window was opaque. The object made absolutely no noise. It was about 12 feet from me and large enough to stand up inside - perhaps 7-10' in height and 30' long. I remember saying out loud, you are a beautiful machine.

All of a sudden I became frightened thinking it would take me away. I closed the window and was kneeling down and continued to look out the window. It was in no rush to leave and continued hovering in front of my window. I remember saying out loud, "do not take me please. If you do, my fiancé and family will not know what happened to me. Who are you and why are you here?"

It continued to hover for another few minutes and then slowly moved away from my window, over Kingston Road, and gently and gracefully moved east.

I re-opened my window again and said out loud, "be careful of the street-car lines". The craft was very close to the streetcar electrical wires and I was worried it was going to crash into the lines. It was gently maneuvering around the electrical lines to my amazement.

The total time I was seeing the object was perhaps 10 minutes. I immediately called and woke up my mother who lived just east of me. She went outside but did not see anything. I then called my fiancé who did not believe me. My mother later told my siblings and I faced some ridicule, especially from my brother so I decided not to officially report the event. It has haunted me all these years and I have felt very guilty for not reporting the event because I know it was real and perhaps it could of helped someone else who had also seen the object verify their account. After all these years, I am now reporting the event but do not want my name to be used please. - MUFON CMS

UFO Sighting - A 'Flying Sheet of Paper'



The witness states that this was a 'flying sheet of paper' and that they have seen this object on six other occasions. Take note that MUFON has not followed up on the previous sighting reports:

Phoenix, Arizona: I have previously reported several instances of my encounters with "flying sheet of paper". Rather than being something that is simply a random occurrence, my previous encounters while at work clearly demonstrated that this thing was being dispatched when I would come outside for my breaks. Well now this thing has showed up where I live. At last, I have finally caught this thing on video. This will mark my sixth encounter with the "flying sheet of paper".

In this video, it doesn't do anything that is in particularly spectacular, other than fly along in a straight and steady fashion, that would in itself seem to be out of the ordinary. You would expect a sheet of paper, being carried along by the wind, to bounce around in its trajectory across the sky. Sorry I wasn't able to zoom in for a closer look. When I spotted this thing, I was out in the open, fully exposed to sunlight, and couldn't make out anything clearly in my camera's viewfinder other than the clouds you see in the background. So I had to shoot this video by pointing my camera in the general direction of what I could see directly by looking up. Without the clouds in the background on my camera's viewfinder, I would have had no reference points for aiming my camera.

With this being my sixth encounter with "Flying Sheet of Paper", I am still uncertain as to whether this might be extraterrestrial in origin, as in some utility craft of alien origin, or terrestrial, and is being controlled by otherworldly visitors. It is certainly something akin to a signature business card, telling me that I'm still involved in a bizarre relationship with WTF. - MUFON CMS
