It was good to hear from my colleague UFO field investigator Gary Mansfield again...this time he offers insight on presenting his bio-form evidence and theories to academia:
Lon - In the course of having recent interviews with several post-graduate physics professors, I surprisingly received a greater reception by way of associating ufology issues with possible ties to dark matter theory. That seemed intriguing to me at first to actually have found a portal of interest with these science guru’s. Another note of interest: is that more senior physicist actually were willing to discuss the details of these anomalous manifestations, so long as their professional opinions were not openly publicized or affiliated in any way. Federal Research Grants & Funding to some university science labs is not always open to public knowledge, and many actually have government ties with extensive groundwork sciences and laser research.
Bottom line: A rational approach to intelligent inquiry requires that we meet on the same professional level and moral compass of respect.
Transformational changes in these bio-form anomalies actually spurred a greater deal of interest over more general observation notation. I must emphatically state that I do not believe these anomalous atmospheric objects either mimic, nor do they morph into apparent constructs of conventional aircraft, thus simply for the sake of non-detection. Given their extreme levels of
performance characteristic, this popular assertion in current ufology seems baseless at best.
I am sending a few video/frame photographs of a recent UFO sighting that exhibited continuous “shape change behavior” during our recorded observation. Their is something very strange and mystical about these objects.

Humanoid researcher Albert Rosales forwarded an odd 1974 case investigated by UFO/anomalies investigator Stan Gordon:
Sewickley, Pennsylvania - May 23, 1974 - 18:00
A 16-year old boy was motorcycling after school in his favorite spot just southeast of his home. The area consists of a 1,000 acre area of woods and hilly terrain. After riding on top of a hill for awhile the witness proceeded down an old trail to the foot of the hill. At that time his motorcycle wasn’t making much noise as he was coasting most of the way. At the foot of the hill he turned left onto another road which happened to be in a turn. As he rounded the turn still coasting, he looked up to the far end of the road. About 250 yards away a figure was observed standing sideways facing uphill. At that point the witness revved up his cycle several times and shifted gears, which seemed to have attracted the creature’s attention. The creature changed from a side position to a frontal position and half squatted at the same time. He remained in this position for a few seconds and then turned to the uphill direction and with three large steps vanished into the woods. The creature was described as being human-like in form and 7 feet or taller in height. The creature was described as completely covered in a shiny stainless steel colored suit, which was wrinkled all over except for the head area. The head was described as being football shaped and “skin tight”. Investigators who searched the area found some possible footprints of the creature.

I received this inquiry from a woman in South Africa (sorry for the caps...I didn't have time to adjust the font):
MY CHILDREN AND I RESIDE IN PENNINGTON KZN. WE MOVED HERE FROM CAPE TOWN IN NOVEMBER 2010 AND HAVE BEEN LIVING HERE FOR OVER A YEAR NOW.
I AM VERY PLEASED TO KNOW THAT I HAVE FOUND SOMEONE WHO I CAN TALK TO ABOUT WHAT MAY POSSIBLY BE GOING ON WITH MY DAUGHTER AGED 5. SHE WILL BE TURNING SIX ON THE 12TH MAY THIS MONTH.
ON THE 1ST OF MAY MY DAUGHTER HAD A DREAM WHICH SHE ONLY TOLD ME ABOUT ON TUESDAY THE 2ND. SHE SAID THAT SOME DOCTORS CAME TO TAKE HER OUT OF HER BED TO TAKE HER TO HOSPITAL WHERE THEY DID AN OPERATION ON HER. WHEN THEY WERE FINISHED THEY BROUGHT HER BACK TO HER BED. I ASKED HER TO DESCRIBE WHAT THEY LOOKED LIKE. SHE SAID THAT THEY HAD SHINY GREY PANTS WITH SHINY BLUE TOPS AND SHINY BLACK SLEEVES. I THEN ASKED HER WHAT THEIR HAIR LOOKED LIKE. SHE SAID THEIR HAIR WAS BLUE. I THEN ASKED HER WHAT COLOUR THEIR EYES WERE. SHE SAID THAT THEY HAD HUGE GREY EYES. SHE ACTUALLY DREW THEM FOR ME AND I DECIDED TO SEE IF I COULD FIND ANYTHING ON THE NET SIMILIAR TO WHAT SHE HAD SEEN. I MANAGED TO FIND A PHOTO OF ALIENS IN SIMILIAR SUITS. I TOOK IT HOME FROM WORK AND LEFT IT LYING AROUND FOR HER TO FIND WITHOUT SAYING ANYTHING. HER EYES WNET THE SIZE OF SAUCERS WHEN SHE DID SEE IT AND HER EXACT WORDS WERE AHHH MOMMY THIS IS WHAT THE DOCTORS LOOKED LIKE. THE SAME NIGHT THAT SHE HAD THIS DREAM MY NINE MONTH OLD JACK RUSSELS BEHAVIOUR WAS OUT OF SORTS. HE DID NOT STOP GROWLING OR AND AT ONE STAGE FLEW OUT THE FRONT DOOR BARKING. I CHASED AFTER HIM AS WE STAY IN A RESORT TO SHUT HIM UP AND HEARD THE SECURITY GATE CLOSING BUT THERE WERE NO CARS. I LOCKED HIM INSIDE BUT THIS DID NOT STOP HIM FROM CARRYING ON GROWLING. MY DOG DOES NOT USUALLY DO THIS AND I FIND IT ODD THAT IT WAS THE SAME NIGHT MY DAUGHTER HAD THAT DREAM. HER SLEEPING PATTERNS HAVE ALSO CHANGED AND I FIND IT DIFFICULT GETTING HER TO GO TO SLEEP. SHE SLEEPS IN MY BED LATELY. SHE ALSO SAID THAT THE AMBULANCE THAT TOOK HER AWAY WAS BLACK.
ALSO SHE SAYS THAT SHE DOES NOT WANT TO SLEEP BECAUSE THE MONSTERS COME TO TAKE HER TO THE MONSTER BOSS.
COULD YOU PLEASE HELP ME HERE AND SHED SOME LIGHT ON WHAT IS HAPPENING TO MY DAUGHTER. YESTERDAY THE 6TH OF MAY SHE DREW A TRIANGLE LOOKING CRAFT WHICH SHE SAYS IS A SPACE SHIP.
I USED TO BE WITH A UFO GROUP IN CAPE TOWN RUN BY (redacted) AFTER HAVING SOME EXPERIENCES MYSELF THAT IS WHY I TOOK NOTE OF WHAT HAPPENED TO MY DAUGHTER.
THANKING YOU KIM B.
NOTE: I'm referring Kim to Spirit Rescue International...we have handled abduction scenarios and non-spirit infestations as well as spirit rescue cases. Lon
I received a comment and anecdote related to 'The Trail':
Hey Lon, I was just reading your site and saw the story 'The Trail'.
What first caught my eye was the name of the story, but then I began reading and noticed that in happened in Ohio and I have had a similar experience!
Back in 1999, I was with a friend in some local woods (not the same place as the author of that story but my story also takes place in Ohio). We hiked deep into the forest one summer day and noticed the landscape seemed to "change" around us. Not really blatantly change as if you blinked your eyes and things were different, but subtly things would slowly change as you walked in one direction and realized the path behind you wasn't the same when you turned around. We both definitely noticed the strange changing of scenery around us and mutually agreed it was time to leave.
When we went to leave the forest, the path we had taken in had changed completely and led in an opposite direction. In fact, we didn't recognize the path at all. We tried to find our bearings, but we found we were hopelessly lost. Then, the sun started to set.
Flashlights burning in the pitch black woods, we looked for an exit. After several hours and many mind numbing turns where we seemed to be going in circles, we did eventually find our way out of the woods and back to my car. We both feel that the forest had truly changed itself, almost as if it were a living creature trying to capture us. I honestly I think it just became bored of us, as it simply decided to "let us go". It really felt like we could have been lost in there forever if the mercy of the forest deemed it. Very odd to say the least and still gives me chills to this day. An experience I won't ever forget.
It's just one of things that's just impossible to explain properly. And, of course, nobody ever believes us. ;) I was excited to read 'The Trail' and see I am not alone here.
Thanks for reading my email and I hope you can contact the author of "The Trail" and let him/her know they are not alone in this weird phenomenon.
NOTE: Thanks to Jason and the others for their submissions...Lon
