Dark Humanoid in the Desert


I recently received the following account:

Back in the spring of 2016, a few of my friends were talking about their experience with some weird creature, in the desert southeast of Tucson near Vail, Arizona. The descriptions sounded a lot like Mothman, though this creature had no wings. I was skeptical, but I didn’t want to doubt my friends because whatever this was had really scared them. They said that they believed it was some kind of alien being.

Later on that year, in the winter, these sightings were far from my mind. I was visiting a friend who lived in Vail. I stayed over late that evening. At about 2 AM I left their house to drive about 25 minutes down I-10 towards home. Driving about 50 mph, when approaching a rise in the road, I saw a silhouette. Before I even processed that I was observing something I soon realized that I had slowed and eventually stopped on the shoulder to get a better view.

It was about 20 yards or so away, standing almost in the middle of the road. Because of the rise in the road I could only see this form from the hips up. It was very tall and looked human-like. Very skinny, with long thin arms and skin that was dark, leathery and dry; though there was a 'sheen' to the body. The eyes were a reflective red color. I couldn’t tell if it was looking at me or not. There wasn’t another car in sight at the time.

I'm usually very calm during emergency situations. I’m very interested in unexplained phenomena, but confronting this thing, the panic switch flipped. My mind is telling me to hit the gas, but I just sit there, staring at this thing. I looked down for a second, considering turning around and driving back to my friend’s house. I put the car in first gear, looked back up and the being was gone. I immediately drove towards my house. I was shivering uncontrollably the whole way home. I pulled into the driveway, walked in the kitchen door, and became violently ill. I literally passed out in my bathroom.

I didn't wake until about 1 PM that day. I dragged myself off the bathroom floor and immediately went to bed. I was totally exhausted and just wanted to sleep. I rarely left the bedroom for the next 5 days. I had no appetite and it seemed like every bone on my body ached. One of my friends eventually came over and helped me into the living room. I ate a little bit, but I was still very tired and despondent. I didn't tell her or anyone else what I had encountered. I just said that I had the flu.

Do you have any idea of what I observed out in the desert? Have you heard of similar creatures? ML

NOTE: I contacted 'ML' by email. Hopefully I can talk to her by phone at some point. She seems reluctant to discuss this event, and is somewhat fearful that this being may seek her out. The being didn't seem to be an apparition, and her description suggests that it was was an actual corporeal entity. It is interesting as to the number of bizarre cryptids and humanoids that are encountered in the desert. This event was no exception. Lon

Daily 2 Cents: The Smiling Man -- Flight MH370 Remains Unexplained -- The Mysterious Bradshaw Ranch


The Smiling Man

“I was born on the evening of June 24, 1975 in NYC, one month prematurely while my parents were there visiting my mother's family in various East Coast locations from our home in St Louis, MO. In 2015, a friend of mine took me to New Orleans for a few days prior to my birthday as a gift. We had a great time and had tickets to fly home in the early afternoon on my birthday.

The flight out of Louis Armstrong Airport was uneventful except for two things. The first was an older guy sitting beside us who kept looking our way. He had what I can only describe as a gentle smile on his face. I didn't feel creeped out so much, but it was just weird to have him spend so much time looking our way in silence. The next thing was when we started to descend for landing. The plane started to shake and jolt terribly. My buddy and I looked at each other with that 'Oh f--k' expression. I glanced past my friend and caught the eye of the man sitting across the aisle. He was looking straight at me, with that grin still on his face. He leaned out from his seat toward ours and said very calmly, in a firm tone, 'This one will land just fine', then turned his head and looked forward. That gentle smile never left his face. From there the ride got really rough, but the plane landed just fine. The pilot came on the intercom and quickly explained that it was some pretty bad wind-shear, gave us a weather update and thanked us for flying. Everyone on the plane was so stressed I swear I could smell the fear.

As we got our carry-ons out of the overheads I made a point to not even glance at that dude, but I could feel him looking at me. We got off and hustled our asses on out of there. Nobody was saying a word. We were all still freaking out. Here is where it gets creepy... last year I was reading about air disasters. That experience had stuck with me and I developed a bit of an obsession. One day I came across the story of Eastern Airlines Flight 66. The flight left New Orleans in the early afternoon on June 24, 1975 en route to JFK in NYC. The plane crashed on descent due to severe wind-shear, killing 113 people, just hours before I was born, 40 years to the day from my flight with the man and his gentle grin." - sprontos

Beyond Creepy

NOTE: I've heard and read several variations of this type of activity...a smiling man on a commercial flight. Strange. Lon

The Mysterious Bradshaw Ranch

One of the most popular destinations in the state of Arizona is the town of Sedona, which over the years has accrued a reputation as quite the mecca for New Agers and paranormal researchers from all over the country as well as droves of tourists every year. Arizona, and in particular this area is rather well-known for a high concentration of UFO sightings and for the mysterious energy vortices said to dot the landscape here, where earth energies crackle and which are believed to confer all manner of health benefits, as well as said to aid in meditation and self reflection. It is largely because of these alleged magical vortices that a bustling business of spiritual healing tours and metaphysical medicine outfits have sprung up here, and one can already see that Sedona is already a rather strange and unique place in an already rather unique and strange state. However Sedona is also the home to a very unusual patch of land where there have long been reported all manner of high strangeness, from UFOs, to ghosts, to dinosaurs, and more.

Flight MH370 Remains Unexplained

A safety report into the disappearance of flight MH370 has concluded that the plane was manually turned around in mid-air, rather than being under the control of autopilot, and that “unlawful interference by a third party” could not be ruled out.

However, it dismissed theories that had suggested the pilot and first officer brought the plane down in a suicide mission, and also ruled out mechanical failure as a cause.

The long-awaited report – which was initially described as the “final report”, although investigators then backtracked from that description – left the hopes of the families dashed after it failed to provide any concrete conclusions about the reasons the plane disappeared nor any indication where the wreckage might be.

Speaking at a press conference in Putrajaya, Malaysia, Dr Kok Soo Chon, the investigator in charge of the MH370 safety investigation, did not assign blame for the incident but laid out several protocols that were broken by the air traffic control in Malaysia and Vietnam that ensured the plane went missing for 20 minutes before anyone was alerted.

Screaming 'Winged Being' Encountered in Southwest Ontario


I received the following email this morning (7/30/2018):

Sir - I heard you on 'Paranormal Horizon' radio last night, and tried to call-in but the show was ending. You were talking about inter-dimensional creatures. I believe I saw something that may fit that bill.

In July 2011 my wife and I were spending a weekend at a friend's cabin, about 15 kilometers north of Manitou Falls, Ontario, Canada. We were both sitting on the porch looking into the woods. There were two spotlights shining off the porch, so the woods and the open area in front of the cabin were well-lit. I had spent a lot of time in this general area as a boy, and I was aware of the wildlife that lived there.

It was close to midnight, as we sat and talked. It was a very mild still night, but for some reason the usual sounds of the woods were subdued. I wasn't alarmed, but it did seem strange. Sometimes when a Lynx hunts at night, things do quiet down; so I assumed that may be what was going on. I kept my eyes open just in case another predator was about. Eventually my wife wanted to go inside, so I obliged her and followed. I left the porch spotlights on. We went to bed around 1:30 AM and both of us quickly dozed off.

The next thing I remember is my wife shaking me, telling me to wake up. She said she had heard a 'scream' coming from the from of the cabin. She wasn't used to being in the outdoors, so I told her it was either an Owl or Lynx. She insisted that no animal could have made that terrible noise; that it sounded like a woman was in distress. I looked at my phone. It was 2:33 AM. I got out of bed and walked into the front living room. I looked out the window, but didn't see anything. She was right behind me. Then the scream pierced the night again. This time I definitely heard it, and it wasn't like anything I've ever heard before.

We stood by the cabin window and watched the woods. About 10 minutes later, we heard something on top of the cabin porch roof. It sounded like it was jumping up and down. It was so loud and forceful, I thought it may go through the porch roof. We continued to watch, when all of a sudden this huge winged creature jettisoned from above towards the woods. It was massive and dark in color. The wings were fully open and not moving; like it was gliding towards the trees. We caught a decent look of this creature as it sailed upwards into the dark sky, then descended back towards the edge of the woods. It performed this maneuver two more times, until it came streaming, and screaming, towards the open ground in front of the cabin; and then vanished! The wings had been tight against the body and it looked like a dark missile about to slam into the clearing, but disappeared before it hit the ground!

We both jumped and let out a huge gasp. It was the most shocking experience I had ever had. My wife was wide-eyed and had to sit down. What in the world was that thing?

I have tried to comprehend what we witnessed that night, and I still have no idea as to what it was. It had arms and legs like a human, but the body was scrawny and flexible. It's hard to describe. The head was barely visible. Overall, I'd guess it was 4 feet or so in height and the wide billowy wings spread out to at least 15 feet when fully extended. The scream was the most memorable part of this experience. It really did sound like a frightened woman, but the decibel level made our ears uncomfortable.

A few days later, I asked my friend if he had ever seen anything unusual at the cabin. The most exciting event he could recall was a Badger getting into the kitchen one night. That was the extent of it. I decided not to go into details with him, but did say that my wife and I had an eerie night and that we didn't get much sleep because of strange noises coming from the woods. He just shrugged his shoulders and said nothing.

Do you believe that this flying creature actually disappeared into another reality, as you mentioned in the show? I appreciate your thoughts. JK

NOTE: I talked to 'JK' by telephone. He currently lives in North Dakota. His encounter left a lot of questions, of which he has few answers. He was positive that this was a corporeal creature and that both he and his wife were not hallucinating. Could it have been a winged humanoid or unknown flying cryptid. By the description, it seems very possible. Anyway, it'll be interesting to see if any further reports come from the general area. Lon

Daily 2 Cents: Can Meditation Enhance Perception? -- Kangaroos Mob Australia's Capital -- Arcane Radio...Eric Altman


Can Meditation Enhance Perception?

By James Hirlehey - (submission): Most people believe that everything which exists is there for a reason and fits within the limits of rational thinking. We forget that this is just a belief, a paradigm determined by the time in which we live.

This rationale is considered powerful enough to explain everything without resorting to less tangible elements, such as God. The universe is conceived as a mechanism, formed by assembled pieces, which can be dissected, analyzed and finally comprehended.

The popular belief is that human beings have the power to understand creation and the wider universe. Everything follows a logical process, therefore can be framed within the same parameters described above. Therefore, everything that the prevailing scientific paradigm hasn’t been able to decipher must be, logically speaking, nonexistent or false.

Religions and traditions, on the contrary, have guided us from ancient times; it is very much a modern concept to believe that everything must fit and be easily explained. Though traditions are may not be entirely plausible, they still point to ideas which stretch the limits of contemporary thinking.

Just as the senses have limits to comprehend reality which can be fooled by an illusion, human reason also can be challenged too. Here’s where meditation is a useful tool to venture beyond the boundaries of normal thinking, leading to new knowledge and expansion of understanding.

Meditation breaks the conventional limits that forces people to comprehend via a process of scientific evaluation only. This method of relaxation opens the senses to an infinite universe full of new realities.

A new level of perception:

When you are in the habit of meditating, you may "see things" during a session. What you "see" can be a product of your mind letting itself go and creating images from all the elements which are present in your day to day life. Conversely, you may also be perceiving a response to stimuli, whether it’s an emotion, an energy or a smell; sometimes a memory may be triggered at an unexpected moment.

Practicing yoga and meditation helps to seek the balance of mind, body, and spirit. By silencing intrusive thoughts, lowering the stressful noise of everyday life, it’s possible to reach inner peace. A perfect state of silence and full connection with the environment, some call it enlightenment. When all that peripheral noise has been shut down, there’s the potential for perception to expand making space for new ideas and thoughts.

When meditating, Buddhists manage to minimize their brain activity, eliminating sensory stimuli, thoughts, memories and mental processes that occur even during sleep. The normal activity can act as a blindfold for other levels of perception and understanding.

Intense meditation causes brain changes known as neuroplasticity, the brain’s ability to adapt and transform according to the stimuli it receives. During stress, the brain returns to a more primitive type of speech. Analyzing Buddhist monks’ brain activity during meditation scientists have been able to record the transition of conscious states. This includes the brain whilst alert as well as in a more relaxed and receptive state. The last phase achieved for those with great meditative skills is a state that can be considered as a deep rest without being asleep, silencing all the voices and reaching inner peace.

Meditation can alter your perception to a new way of seeing and communicating with the energies in the environment. These visions may contain Jungian archetypes, mandalas, numbers, even messages from the angelic cohorts. Establishing contact with the unconscious means getting in touch with your own darkness and repressed desires. Such hidden aspects are part of the accumulated energy within yourself which can also provide messages for self-improvement, forgiveness and perhaps, from the beyond.

During the night many people are more perceptive to the energies that surround them. Some even report feeling someone else laying in their bed, or just watching them from the door frame. There are also some who claim to feel presences mainly during long meditation sessions.

What should I do?

If you have been able to establish some level of connection with paranormal energies or have empowered your third eye and begun to have new perceptions of the world around you, it is possible that you have managed to ascend to a higher level of consciousness.

It is often believed that these perceptions are only "felt" by certain types of persons but you are always surrounded by this energy. However, it’s sometimes possible to lack the spiritual maturity to accept them, or the decision to accept their meaning. Meditation can be a tool powerful enough to provoke a consciousness rebirth of individuals whether they are gifted or not.

If during your meditation you start to sense blurry images, symbols or forms, keep calm and let yourself register all the energy you’re surrounded by. Analyze the images, shapes or figures that appear to understand the message you’re receiving during meditation.

In conclusion:

People who experience this type of perception or have recurring sensations shouldn’t be frightened. Instead they should seek to deepen and sharpen the sensations and thus develop the latent extrasensory power they have.

Paranormal events are merely the scientifically unexplained phenomena that end up being studied by parapsychology. There are many branches of knowledge devoted to the study of those subtle but powerful connections that occur when we develop a different level of perception, like telepathy, tarot reading, psychic abilities, remembering past lives, and reaching the beyond.

Kangaroos Mob Australia's Capital

Mobs of kangaroos have been raiding patches of grass in the Australian capital Canberra, driven to the city's sports fields, back yards and roadsides by food scarcity.

Canberra residents have taken to social media with images of the jumping marsupials exploring outside their usual habitats. But beyond the cute photo opportunities, the hungry kangaroos are at risk of dying on the roads as their feeding times coincide with rush hour.

Canberra has more than 30 nature reserves, with most hosting hundreds of Eastern Grey Kangaroos, and it is not unusual to see them in the reserves or in roads or yards nearby, Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Parks and Conservation Service Director Daniel Iglesias told CNN.

But he said this winter the animals were far more visible. Read more at Mobs of kangaroos take to streets of Australia's capital over food shortages

Weekend 2 Cents: Sudden Pain / Unknown 'White Material' on Leg -- UFO Sighting Reports Down? NOPE!


Sudden Pain / Unknown 'White Material' on Leg

Weston Supermare, UK - 2018-07-27 - 02:30: I was talking to my wife on the phone over facetime at 2:30 am. on top of the bed talking away. Suddenly it felt like I had been shot in my left leg. Great pain occurred for ten seconds then it appeared I had a white type of material appear over the pain which I have stored away. I pulled the white material off my leg taking the hair with it. Freaked out. I explained to my wife and after 3am I went to sleep. Woke up with this mark on my leg. - MUFON

NOTE: There have a been higher than usual number of unknown being and related encounters throughout the United Kingdom lately. Lon

New Hybrid Whale-Dolphin Discovered

HAWAII (CBS Local) – Last year, a team of scientists spotted what they believed was a hybrid animal off the coast of Kauai, Hawaii. A new report from Cascadia Research Collective confirms they did and the new sea creature is the result of a whale and a dolphin mating, the team’s head researcher told CBS News.

What the researchers discovered was a hybrid of a melon-headed whale and a rough-toothed dolphin. In an interview with local newspaper The Garden Island, the head of the project said the discovery is their “most unusual finding.” “We had the photos and suspected it was a hybrid from morphological characteristics intermediate between species,” Robin Baird said.

During their two-week project, scientists were able to get a biopsy sample from the creature and study its genetics. They were able to confirm that the animal was a hybrid. “Based on the genetics, the father was a rough-toothed dolphin and the mother a melon-headed whale,” Baird told CBS News via email.

UFO Sighting Reports Down? NOPE!

The June 5 New York Skies article “Close encounters with UFOs are getting harder to find” discussed the falloff in UFO sighting reports in the United States during the early months of 2018 but only featured National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) data as a quick snapshot. At this writing, I have more interesting, and indeed serious, data to report regarding that drop-off.

Since that time, the kind folks at the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) have supplied me with their data for the January through June 2018 timeframe.

The MUFON sighting numbers have been suffering as well. In 2016 their average monthly sightings were between 350 and 400 per month. In 2017 sighting numbers fell between 275 and 300 reports per month. In 2018 the sighting numbers started at about 375 and bounced between 250 and 300 per month, as shown on the chart. Read more at The decline in UFO sightings continues

NOTE: I believe this article is a misnomer, because private investigators are getting more UFO sighting reports than ever! I believe that people are beginning to understand that the reporting agencies (MUFON & NUFORC) are a waste of time and effort. Lon

Girl Victim of Bizarre Hex

A family from a village in Konoin, Bomet County, claims their 13-year-old daughter has been bewitched.

The family alleges that for the past seven months, they have known no peace after their daughter started exhibiting strange behaviour.

Josephine, the mother of the victim, said that in January, their daughter became weak and when they took her to the hospital, the doctors couldn’t diagnose what was wrong with her.

“Every time we went to the hospital, medical examinations revealed that she was healthy. It was not until she started vomiting assorted items like neckties, spoons and mobile phones that we realised it was witchcraft,” said the mother.

The 'cat (kind of) got out of the bag' during last night's Arcane Radio show. So I'm going to make a brief and general statement.

A book option for 'Mothman Dynasty: Chicago's Winged Humanoids' has been transacted. As well, Phantoms & Monsters and P&M Fortean Research case reports and investigations MAY be the basis for a media production. At this point, I can't give further details.

I've been receiving inquiries since the show aired last night, so I figured I had better make a statement before rumors start. Lon
