20131020_TDT_L_UFO_1021_p1_300If your looking for a sensational book about super-secret bases that contain strange alien experiments and battles involving aliens and the military, then look elsewhere.  However if your looking for a an account of the events surrounding Dulce New Mexico in the 70’s and 80’s based on police reports and scientific evidence then this is the book for you.  The book is written by Greg Valdez and it follows the adventures of his farther, Gabe who at the time of all the Dulce craziness was the state police chief for the Dulce area.

The book starts off with Gabe’s investigation into strange cattle mutilations around the area.  More and more pile up and Gabe and a team of rancher’s, police and a scientist or two chase strange objects around in the night and perform experiments on the cattle to help determine what exactly what was going (the results may surprise you).  I personally enjoy the part where Mr. Valdez and a few police from the local reservation where chasing an odd bright object in the night sky.  The object seemed to be guessing their every move, almost as if  it was tapping into their radio chatter.  Because of this they decide to start speaking in their local Native American language and it seems to do the trick.  They were able to corner the thing but it still ended up slipping away.

Of course there’s more to the whole Dulce saga then some dead cattle and strange lights.  Enter Paul Bennewitz, Paul started poking around Dulce in the early 1980’s and his story has a book all it’s own (it’s called Project Beta by Greg Bishop, can you guess what my next review may be?). Paul quickly befriended Gabe Valdez and pointed out some fascinating things, sadly about 20% or so was complete disinformation fed to Bennewitz to lead him astray.  Greg states that if you take everything Bennewitz said and leave out anything that has anything to do with aliens then his info seems to be spot on.  Even though Paul’s life and mind were ruined because of what the massive disinformation campaign that was waged against him we were finding out now that he may not have been as crazy as he was made out to be.

These two subjects make up the meat of the book, most of the information on the base comes from Paul Bennewitz and blossoms from there.

What I like about Greg’s approach to the material is he didn’t have any preconceived notions about where it would leads (a problem with a lot of paranormal books).  He analysis his father’s notes, police reports, documents and other information and lets it take him where it takes him.  He didn’t twist and bend the facts to fit into some tale the he decided before hand was the truth.  I won’t get to much into it (if you want to know read the book) but it is not a crazy story about aliens battles and human experiments underground.  The conclusion he comes to is very down to earth but still very interesting and enjoyable.  This books also has a companion website which expands on the information with some of  documentation and photos, which is a great idea and a great way to fall further down the rabbit hole.  The book can be a bit dry at times (Greg will even forewarn you of  that a couple of times) and a couple of the chapters are very long.  It’s also easy to tell the Greg is not a writer, however that was not the point.  He  just wanted to get the information out there, he’s not out to make money and he’s not out to make a career of writing and I’m fine with that it was still a great read.  I did notice that  some of the information he stated in the book that would be featured on the website has not (at least when I was reading it) was not featured not the website.

Even though the book is not perfect it still contains so much great info on the Dulce story, and it’s all from actual documents and evidence, if Greg didn’t have something to back it up he didn’t put in in the book.  I definitely recommend this book, even though it can get technical at times you’ll breeze through and find yourself saying, “That makes a lot of sense” at the books end.  The website is a great resource even on it’s own without the book, but to get the most out of the two you really should read the book and give the website a visit.

The Darkness in the Room; Delving into Shadow People

Posted in write up's with tags , , , on February 15, 2012 by fknoop24


Your in your bedroom, a place were you feel safe. Suddenly you wake with the realization that you can’t move. You can move your eyes around maybe tilt your head, just a little bit. Then you can see it just in the corner of your eye. A tall black being it may look like the shadow of a person or perhaps black smoke swirling in the shape of a human. The thing moves toward were you are sleeping, it crawls on your bed and then on top of you draining you of energy. This experience may only last a few minutes but to the people who have gone through such a thing, three minutes is a lifetime.

There are many names for this phenomena, sleep paralysis, old hag syndrome, but most people just refer to the frightening beings they see the shadow people. I wrote a post awhile back about the difference between ghost and shadow people and did a pretty lousy job going about it. I seemed to have totally missed the point of shadow people and what they could do. I’m here to retify that and put forth a much better article.

Shadow people do not seem to be mere ghost, no they are much more. I’ve always thought that what ever ghost were they couldn’t harm you, shadow beings seem to be different. Some appear to be pretty nasty, it is reported that they will hold you down by sitting on your chest and then seem to syphon the very energy from your body. There have also been reports of more shy or skittish shadow people perhaps these guys are still working up the nerve to steal your energy.

But what exactly could these things be if not ghost (what are ghost for that matter). Let’s take a look at the different types of shadow being’s that have been seen. There is of course just your basic run of the mill people shaped beings. They just look like someone’s shadow. In some cases these basic shadow beings have taken the form of a familiar friend or family member.  Some off the more frightening ones may even appear as a mist or black smoke.  Even though these basic beings may not be the meanest looking things out there, don’t be fooled. Some of these beings also wear hats. In most cases it appears to a fedora or wide brim hat.  These guys seem to be more curious then anything else and are not as threading.  Some of these beings appear with red eyes.  Of course the red eyed shadow people are said to be the embodiment of pure evil.  There have even been reports of shadow animals.

Some of these be beings may just peer around corners or hide in the shadows but some these things seem for more interested in us.  The phenomenon known as sleep paralysis is pretty much described as what I had in the first paragraph.  Victims of SP wake up from sleep, not as slow wake but a sudden jolt and they seem to be almost fully  awake.  The person can barely move, just their eyes and possibly a little movement.  Somehow these beings seem to be the cause of SP using to steal (some say) the victims life energy.  The paralysis usually only last a few minutes and occurs in a person’s early twenties.

But what are these things.  As I stated before I don’t believe them to be what we think of as ghost.  One theory suggest that these shadow beings are some type of demon or demons.  It would be interesting to find out if there are any correlation between a shadow person encounter and possible possession.  Could these beings be after more then just your energy perhaps if given the chance they will take your whole body.  Another idea is that shadow people might be things from another dimension.  Is so are they aware of us?  And how does SP fit into their methods?  The sometimes sinister methods of shadow people make me wonder what kind messed up dimension they are living in.  Could shadow people be aliens?  There are a few different ways to look at this.  Are the shadow people themselves visitors from another world, or just something that aliens project to cover their tracks?  Maybe the shadow people are just thoughts projected into the heads of people who have had SP.  These people could have been victims of foulplay of aliens and not even know it. They say that sleep paralysis only last a few minuets but perhaps it last longer and only feels like a minute or too.  It certainly is food for thought.

If anyone out there has an experience with sleep paralysis of a shadow person encounter I would like to hear about it.  Write me at or leave it as comment.  Maybe we can investigate it further and see whats going on.


The Chupacabra: Product of Science or Product of Magic

Posted in write up's with tags , , on February 4, 2012 by fknoop24

The Chupacabra, it’s name means goat sucker  and every 20 or so years it seems to pop up in Latin America sucking the very life blood from animals and even attacking people.   Many people think this cyptied is fairly recent.  This is not entirely true,  there have been reports as far back as the 1950’s.

But were did it come from?  There are a few theories out there but I want to focus on the two most fun.  The first is that the Chupacabra is a product of a secret U.S.A science project.  The other is that is was summoned in a magic ritual.

There are varying reports of how the chupa might be an escaped lab experiment.  Most stories will claim that NASA is involved somehow.  Either NASA recovered this creature from aliens themselves.  Or it was developed from Alien DNA recovered from NASA.  Either story ends pretty much the same.  The vicious creature somehow escaped from NASA’s sercret lab and now runs amok in Central America.  A different version of the story says the a secret lab somewhere in Central America released the chupacabra on an unknowing public.  Which ever version of the story sounds juiciest to you a couple things can be taken from them.  The first two stories seem to point to there just being one chupacabra, I mean how many could possibly escaped.  If indeed more then one of these things got out then security at this super secret lab must be horrible.  No I think there must be more then one, thats why I like the last version of the story.  Who know’s why a government would unleash such a vicious animal on the public.  Perhaps it’s some kind of weapon and it set out on the public as a test.  Or maybe the chapa was released in a much different way as disinformation to help cover something else up.  Many people in the states have theorized that cattle and other animal mutilations are done by our government for some reason or another.   They go on to say that an alien cover story was set up as disinformation to keep heat off of what they are doing.  Could the Mexican government be doing the same thing only blaming it on the Chupacabra instead of aliens?

There’s another origin story which involves the opposite of a science project, a magic ritual.  Perhaps the Chupa is some sort entity conjured by magic.  As I said earlier there have been strange reports of something draining the blood of animals since the 1950’s however no one reported actually seeing this mysterious beast until 1987.  Reports of the Chupa have claimed that it floats or levitates.  It also seem’s to appear and disappear at will.  The Chupacabra always just seems to be there it’s never seen approaching it just appears.  The other mystical thing about the Chupacabra is that is seem to come and go about every twenty yeas or so.  Perhaps it must be conjured over and over again it can’t stay in our world for that long.  Can more then one be conjured?

The magical origin story is a bit more obscure then the escaped lab scenario.  This is what I’ve heard.  A few years back some photos were discovered (photos I don’t think anyone has seen).  These pictures were given to a group of psychics to do a reading on.  What they psychics gleamed from their reading was this; a vision of people dressed in white performing a Sangria ritual summoning the Chupacabra on the outskirts of a Brazilian rainforest.  An interesting story but like I said it’s hard to find details about it.  Perhaps their some sect of Sangria which worships the Chupacabra, I don’t know this is just what I’ve heard.  If anyone knows anything abut Sangria and has any thoughts on this please leave a comment.

Whether it came from some science lab or was conjured from the depths one thing I know for certain is something is out there in Central America attacking animals and people.  And for right now the Chupacabra is as good of an expiation as any.


Binall of America: season two with Scott Corrales 

Portal to the Paranormal; Crowley, Parsons, Magic and Missles

Posted in write up's with tags , , , on January 24, 2012 by fknoop24

This is a tale about two men.  One a well known magician and cultist from the early 20th century.  The other a super genius of rocket science who is responsible for modern space exploration.  I’m talking of course of Alister Crowley and Jack Parsons.  What do these two man who at first glance could not be anymore different have in common?  Well for starters they may be responsible for bringing things into this world that we now consider paranormal.

Anyone even remotely interested in the paranormal has at least heard of Alister Crowley.  Crowley was born into a wealthy family on October 12th 1875.  He died at the age of 75 on December 1st 1947.  I could go on and on about Crowley’s many exploits but for the sake of this story I’m going to focus on one specific event.

In the year of 1918 beginning in January and continuing through March of that same year Crowley began The Amalantrah Working.  During these rituals Crowley claimed to have made contact with a being called Lam.  Lam is not really a single being but rather a type of being or possibly a race.  Crowley even unveiled a picture, which he said was a portrait of an actual interdimsional being at his Dead Souls Exhibition in 1919.  Crowley kept very quit about lam, however a few interested parties continued to seek out Lam and his secrets, by creating their own cults of Lam

Why does Lam spark so much interest?  Will if you haven’t looked at the picture yet Lam looks pretty much like a Grey.  Are people seeing aliens in the sky or begins summoned from another dimension?  There are certainly weirder explanations out there.

Where does Jack Parsons fit into all this.  Will not only was Parson’s a rocket scientist but also a believer in magic and a huge follower of Crowley, in fact Crowley himself chose Jack to lead one of his agape lodges of OTO in 1942.  Parson’s was born on October 2nd 1914.  Not only were Crowley and Parson’s both born in early October but they were both born into wealthy families.  Parson’s would grow up to become a brilliant scientist who would go on to invent solid rocket fuel the missing ingredient to space exploration.  Jack saw no quandaries to his love of science and magic he would even recite Crowley’s hymn to the greek god Pan.

Following in Crowley’s footsteps Parson started the Babylon Working, a continuation of Alister Crowley’s Amalantrah Working.  Along with is partner in magic L. Ron Hubbard (yep, that’s right) Parson’s started the working in March of 1946.  The purpose of this ritual was to summon Parson’s “Scarlet Woman” which would help him summon a Moon Child.  You can find out more about both of  these rituals there’s just to much to get into here.  What if Parsons did open a portal as Crowley did years earlier was he able to close it?  Some say no, he was not.  If he couldn’t or didn’t close it what or whom got through?

Alister Crowley died in 1947 of purposed respiratory infection.  Crowley’s doctor died a day later, rumor’s surfaced that the good doctor had cut crowley off of his morphine (which he had become somewhat addicted to) so Crowley put a curse on him.  Jack Parsons would leave this world on June 15th 1952 after a chemical explosion in his basement.  Parson’s death also sparked rumors of a magic ritual gone wrong or maybe suicide.

Did Crowley, his followers and Jack Parson’s open portals to another world?  And if they did, did these things get though? If so it would explain a great many things.  The time line of the modern Alien and ufo sightings does seem to match up.  Only a little over a year later Kenneth Arnold would have his famous sighting and then Roswell would break.  Shortly after the sci-fi wave would start and breed even more tales of strangeness some possibly with a grain of truth to them.  Of course a lot of hardcore researcher’s of UFO’s would turn there nose up at this story it is an angle the must be considered.  As I said in my post about cryptids a couple of weeks back in a world such as the paranormal where there are little answers,  you need all the angles you can get.
