Aokigahara: Japan's suicide forest

At the northwest base of infamous Mount Fuji in Japan lies Aokigahara, a 14 square mile forest of immense natural beauty. It's also the most common location for suicides in Japan, which as a nation has the third highest suicide rate in the world.

To many, suicide is completely unthinkable, yet according to the World Health Organization, over 800,000 people end their own lives in this way per year. The severity of this global issue is most present in 15-29 year olds, as a 2012 study revealed it to be the second leading cause of death in that age group.

Aokigahara, also known as the Suicide Forest or Sea of Trees, has been the final destination for what is believed to be over a hundred individuals annually, despite efforts by both the Japanese government and volunteers to end this grisly tradition.

The truth of the matter

The Case of Steven Greer


Steven Greer
Perhaps you've heard of the Disclosure Project. Headed by Dr. Steven Greer, it was/is an interesting attempt at requesting that the U.S. Government make available all the information it has on UFOs and 'extraterrestrial' visitations. The Disclosure Project made compelling use of credible eyewitnesses - individuals in the fields of military, intelligence, industry, etc. - who gave testimony of UFO sightings and interactions strongly suggesting that elements of the government must know what's going on - but are also deliberately suppressing knowledge of the alien reality to the public.

As stated, the Disclosure Project aspires to some very lofty and noble goals. One of these is to make alien technology, which is believed to be in the possession of the US military, available to the public. It is thought that there exist elements of the U.S. government and military industrial complex that have reverse-engineered alien spacecraft they are in possession of and are secretly using them for militaristic and nefarious purposes only (which is probably true enough). And should the 'zero point' energy technology they surely possess be shared with the world, there would no longer be any need for the shady dealings involved with the business of fossil fuels. (As an aside, it is probably no coincidence that the subject of alien technology getting into public hands was one of the sub-plots of the new X-Files story, suggesting how the show seems so informed by the main tenets of the Disclosure Project - both of which began in 1993.)

Other goals held by the organization are: "To enact legislation which will ban all space-based weapons" and to "enact comprehensive legislation to research, develop and explore space peacefully and cooperatively with all cultures on Earth and in space". These are all things that most peace-loving and normal people would have a hard time objecting to. However, underneath these paradigm-changing aspirations is Greer's position that this same secret government clique has an adversarial relationship with the aliens, and that if only these war-like human groups could understand that E.T. is our friend, just waiting for us to evolve, humanity would be welcomed into the galactic family with open arms.

UFO

Cigar-shaped UFO spotted in Manchester, England (2011) (VIDEO)

In the clip, a small, pipe-shaped object can be seen floating around the clear blue sky in Denton, Manchester.

Perhaps this isn't that surprising - Manchester was named the UFO capital of Britain earlier this year.

Adorned with lights that flash from white, to blue, to purple, the mysterious object is long and narrow, rather than the disc-shape commonly associated with UFOs.

The strange sight was caught on camera as the object flew "higher than planes," according to the owner of the footage.

Posting the clip on social media, he wrote: "Knowing how high it appeared in the sky, I'm guessing its size was massive."

He added the possible UFO was visible in the sky for around 40 minutes before it flew so high it could no longer be seen.

The video, which has resurfaced online after being first posted in 2011, has garnered significant attention from believers in aliens and the supernatural.

Two reported sightings of Loch Ness monster this month

We only need to calculate the time and distance between two different monster sightings reports.

This week has been marked by not one, but two reports of sightings of the mysterious Monster of Loch Ness. It is especially remarkable, considering that reports come from... opposite ends of the United Kingdom!

The first report has been published by the Mirror on August 18th. It cites Calley Tulleth, 28, a mother of three, who was on her holiday at Loch Ness with her husband and children. She was reportedly having lunch on the balcony looking over Loch Ness, when she saw ripples on the surface of the lake, so she ran for the camera.

"I wasn't scared but my eyes popped out of my face," the Mirror cites Tulleth saying. "It's not often you see a monster while on holiday."

Another report came just two days later, on August 20th. This one cites two friends who also claim they managed to capture what they say looks like Nessie.

UFOs are proliferating Saturn's rings, claims NASA scientist

Saturn in natural colours.
This isn't the first time that the scientist has made such claims, but he warns that the situation is "critical" with living alien spaceships in our solar system "proliferating" faster than ever.

Dr. Norman Bergrun, a distinguished mechanical engineer at NASA's Ames Research Center is once again making headlines for his argument that extraterrestrial life exists within the earth's solar system arguing that UFOs that were first spotted in Saturn's rings are "proliferating" to other planets that have rings including Uranus and Jupiter.

"What I found out is, these things inhabit Saturn, that's where I first discovered them, and they're proliferating. You can find them around Uranus and Jupiter. Wherever you see some rings, that's where I see the aircrafts, I call them a ring maker," explained Dr, Bergrun.

"I say that it is electromagnetic because I can identify streamline patterns with respect to it that I knew were what we called 'potential lines' and that says it was electrical," said Dr. Bergrun. "I could tell that those lines demarked the outside of an object."

The scientists argues that the some of the footage near the rings shows "exhaust" emanating from alien aircraft and he warned that things are getting "critical" in deep space as these space ships continue to proliferate throughout the solar system.

Footage appeared to show the woman lying on the floor convulsing as a member of the church tries to perform another 'exorcism'
A TV news crew captured this bizarre footage of a woman 'becoming possessed' after priests performed an 'exorcism' on her neighbour.

The incident was filmed as journalists reported on a resident in Tipitapa, Nicaragua, central America, who had been suffering from 'months of strange behaviour.'

They reported how the 43-year-old woman, named as Herminia, had been 'tormented by evil spirits ' for three months that left her aggressive toward people that approached.

She was filmed wild-eyed and behaving bizarrely before throwing a shoe at neighbours who entered her room.

Nina Kulagina: Psychokinetic powerhouse or fake?


Nina Kulagina
Psychokinesis is the ability to move material objects using the power of mind alone. It may sound like the stuff of science fiction, but there is ample evidence to suggest that humans are capable of moving objects with their minds. Should this prove true, it would be fascinating to say the least, and would suggest that all human beings have this potential. Of course, the implications of psychokinesis for humanity as a whole would be immense, and we as a species may not be ready to handle them just yet. We would need to be at a pretty peaceful place within to harness such an ability responsibly. This is why new discoveries are useless without a good consciousness behind their use, and why we say real change comes from within.

What type of evidence is there? In today's world, something must be peer-reviewed in order to be considered credible. The unfortunate part about this is that science as an institution has become highly politicized, plagued by corruption and the publication of false data. When it comes to topics within the realm of parapsychology, however, results are more reliable. No agenda is driving these experiments, and so they are conducted and their results measured objectively — unlike many corporately funded medical studies. Scientific fraud is important to mention any time we are talking about 'peer-reviewed' scientific literature, so the next time you decide to brush off other publications (even though they are usually all 'peer-reviewed' in some form), take a second to think about this fact. You can see specific examples of this corruption in this article.

Glasgow police officers baffled after witnessing paranormal activity including levitating dog

The house in Rutherglen, Glasgow, has officers spooked
Perplexed officers on a call to a disturbance saw lights going off, clothes flying across a room and a dog, which was playing in the garden, suddenly perched on top of a 7ft hedge.

Police investigating reports of disturbances at a house were left stunned when they witnessed paranormal activity.

The officers witnessed clothes flying across a room, lights going off and when they went back on the lampshades were upside down and oven doors opening and closing. Even a chihuahua dog which was playing in the garden was then discovered sitting on top of a seven-foot hedge.

The family who live at the property had called the police in a panic. They endured two days of the bizarre occurrences before moving out of the property in Rutherglen, South Lanarkshire.

The situation has been discussed at high levels within Police Scotland, with senior officers perplexed as to how they best handle the incidents.

A police source said:
"These were incidents that were witnessed by our own officers. Incidents that are not easily explained.

"One problem we've got is where we go from here as no crime has been established, so what else can we do but deal with any reports of disturbances.

"But officers with more than 20 years' service are saying they've never seen anything like this. It really is something that down-to-earth police officers are having trouble getting their heads round.

"How do you handle what, despite us liking to use the word, has been described as a poltergeist."

Around 75 of the mystery fish showed up in Mr Bain's garden.
An Aberdeenshire man has asked for help in identifying fish which have appeared outside his house.

Kevin Bain found about 75 small fish in his back garden on Thursday.

He believes their arrival is the result of a waterspout which sucked the animals from the sea and dropped them on his property.

Mr. Bain said he thinks the two-inch fish are sand eels but is trying to find out more.
