Astronomers know that black holes exist. They’ve detected swirling disks of gas around them, measured their effects on nearby stars, and even “heard” them merging with other black holes. About the only thing they haven’t done is actually see one.

That could change soon, though, as astronomers turn more and more radio telescopes toward a couple of black holes. And one of those telescopes just went to work in Greenland.

The Greenland Telescope is a 12-meter radio dish. It was built as a prototype for a project in Chile. Astronomers refurbished it, then rebuilt it in Greenland. It took its first observations this year.

One of its goals is to help take the first picture of a supermassive black hole. Although these objects are heavy, they’re so far away that they’re tiny targets. Astronomers hope to actually see one by combining the light from radio telescopes around the world. Such an array can see smaller details than any single telescope.

Eventually, the Greenland Telescope may move to a higher site. Currently, it sits near sea level. The air above it holds a lot of water vapor, which blocks some radio wavelengths. Plans call for it to be moved to a spot near the center of Greenland, at an altitude of more than 10,000 feet. At that height, there’s much less water vapor to contend with, so the telescope will be able to see the universe much more clearly — maybe even a black hole.

We’ll talk about more astronomy on ice tomorrow.

          How to see the Perseid meteor shower peak this weekend      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

How to see the Perseid meteor shower peak this weekendOne of the best meteor showers of the year peaks this weekend, and with any luck, you should be able to catch at least a few of the shooting stars for yourself.  The Perseid meteor shower is expected to peak the night of August 12, into the wee hours of the morning on August 13.  If you happen to be in a light-pollution-free area with nice weather, you'll probably be able to see about 60 or 70 meteors streaking through the moonless sky, according to NASA estimates.  SEE ALSO: The best places to stargaze around the world "The Perseids appear to radiate from the constellation Perseus, visible in the northern sky soon after sunset this time of year. Observers in mid-northern latitudes will have the best views. You should be able to see some meteors from July 17 to August 24, with the rates increasing during the weeks before August 12 and decreasing after the 13th," NASA said in a skywatching video. "Remember, you don't have to look directly at the constellation to see them. You can look anywhere you want to — even directly overhead." The best time to see those meteors is at around 11 p.m. ET until dawn the next morning.  You won't need any special equipment to catch the shower, either. Just make sure you have a clear view of a large swathe of the sky and be patient. Half of watching a meteor shower is waiting around for them to appear. “Relax, be patient, and let your eyes adapt to the darkness,” Kelly Beatty, Sky & Telescope senior editor said in a statement. "The Perseids will put on a great show." While you'll get the best meteor rates in a rural area, far from light pollution, you still might be able to see some meteors from a city or suburb.  If you are in a city, try to get somewhere at least somewhat sheltered from lights, maybe a park or backyard. Your meteor rates will be lower, but it's possible to see at least a few of the brightest meteors over the course of a few hours.  The Perseids happen each year as Earth passes through the trail of dust left behind by the comet Swift-Tuttle, which makes a full orbit of the sun every 133 years.  Those bits of cosmic dust fall into our atmosphere, creating the bright streaks we see as meteors in the night sky.  If you're unable to see the Perseids this year in person, you can always watch them online. The Slooh observatory will host a livestream of the shower starting at 5 p.m. ET on Sunday.  WATCH: Wait, who owns the moon? We found out

          Are UFO Occupants Composed of Plasma, Their Life-Force Residing in Electric Energy?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

After many years of being involved in UFOlogy, I have concluded that some UFOs are intricately connected to plasma. I would like to share my thoughts on this possibility. In doing so, I keep in mind that although we usually look for life forms similar to ours (corporeal life having formed in an earth-like environment), where life really seems to dwell is in our consciousness. No doubt, in consciousness throughout the universe.

Our consciousness exists in our minds and according to modern science, our minds "run" on electric circuitry. Does life itself dwell in this electric energy rather than in the corporeal body? Is this why we "pass on" to other realms rather than "dying?" Humans tend to not even consider this because we perceive ourselves as corporeal but perhaps we should reassess the nature of our own beinghood while we also consider that electricity might be the source of life, rather than organic matter.

In many sightings, the UFOs have a plasma-like appearance; for example, this description was given by a witness: http://www.examiner.com/article/pennsylvania-witnesses-videotape-two-glowing-red-orbs-hovering-over-field?CID=examiner_alerts_article

Many times, UFOs defy gravity making right turns or small circles at tremendous speeds; science as we know it concludes that occupants inside they would die from the "g forces" involved. This is one argument by skeptics against the reality of UFOs.

 

Picture: Artwork of plasma UFO

Are UFOs plasma formations? However, what if the UFOs are composed of plasma? The assumption is then that "of course" there are no life forms in plasma, so UFOs are obviously just weird plasma phenomena devoid of life. Even the infamous "swamp gas" had a plasma concept behind it.

That plasma can have no intelligence is a conclusion of science as we know it. However, we still have much to learn scientifically, and we are wise to keep in mind that advanced science as witnessed by less-advanced beings (us), seems to be impossible even though we do witness it as it unfolds. The trouble with stating that plasma is just plasma is that UFOs display intelligent behavior, even if it seems to be alien behavior to us. We can't quite make sense of why UFOs act as they do, but their intelligence (or that of their occupants), has been proven over and over again.

With thanks to Mark Heley's website http://www.netplaces.com/guide-to-2012/ for this UAP section: In fact, Project Condign was the name given to a top secret UFO study undertaken by the British Government's Defense Intelligence Staff (DIS) between 1997 and 2000. The report looked into all reported sightings of UFOs over the previous three decades. Between 1967 and 1997, there were 100–750 credible incidences a year in British air space alone. The project came to the remarkable conclusion that the phenomenon was indisputably real, but that they weren't dealing with physical craft. Instead, the report concludes that the UFO phenomenon is caused by highly charged atmospheric plasmas. These were named unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs).

In a high-energy state, the UAPs are visible to the naked eye, but in a lower energy state they may only be visible in the infrared spectrum or on radar. The UAPs generally have a magnetic field about 5,000 times weaker than Earth's, but the UAP's field is pulsed and rotating, which seems to provide them with their source of propulsion.

The UAPs were also capable of flying in formation and quite frequently formed complex geometric arrangements of three to five balls that gave a very good approximation of the underside shape of a classic UFO. These balls were able to move synchronously and were observed to be able to join and then part again. When flying in formation, light in between the balls of plasmas often appears to be blocked, giving the appearance of a solid craft.

 

The power of these UAPs is so great that close proximity to their plasma fields can seriously harm a vehicle or person. The Project Condign report notes that scientists in the former Soviet Union have taken a particular interest in the UFO/UAP phenomena and are pursuing related techniques for military purposes. Several Russian and Chinese aircraft have been destroyed chasing UFOs.

Parts of the Condign Report are still classified and have not been published. These include the relationship between UAPs and solar sunspot cycles, various drawings, and photographs. However, the report does include the admission that the significance of ley lines and Earth energy grids were investigated as part of the report's study.

The effects of proximity to these UAP plasmoids can be wide ranging in the people who encounter them:

· 75 percent of people felt odd or dizzy or reported tingling sensations.

· 65 percent saw vivid images and/or said they experienced pleasant vibrations.

· Only 40 percent said they experienced fear or terror.

The Condign Report also notes that there are significant neurological effects on humans who encountered the UAPs. Contact with UAPs created serious perceptual and temporal distortions. The Condign Report's conclusion after three years of gathering and processing data is that there is "no evidence that they (UAPs) . . . represent any hostile intent" and that "further investigation should be made into the applicability of various characteristics of plasmas in novel military applications."

Russian UFO Research

Extensive research on these plasmoids has also been carried out by the Russian Academy of Sciences in a department headed by V. G. Azahazha. They concluded that these phenomena are highly mobile high-energy plasma vortexes, which they call UFOs. Their studies showed that these plasma UFOs exhibited the following behaviors:

· Gradual growth

· Splitting into two or more separate parts

· Dissolution to invisibility

· Disparate bright lights merging into larger formations (often reported as small craft joining the mother ship and forming a row of portholes)

· Disappearance, accompanied by a smell

· Rotation, nonlinear motion

· Weak thermal radiation

· Translucence, haloes, blackness

· Beamed light emissions

The beamed light emissions are explained by the Russian scientists as "discharge, or leakage paths" that allow the plasma to "float off" and to change direction, seemingly at will. (end of Mark Heley's http://www.netplaces.com/guide-to-2012/ contribution)

Is there intelligent life within plasma formations? "…change directions seemingly at will?" So let's ask THE question: Might UFO beings actually be a form of life within plasma? Or simply - a plasma form of life?

If they are a plasma form of life, we tend to assume they are primitive life, like an amoeba, or perhaps a jellyfish. Of course there have been many "jelly fish" and "manta ray" UFO sightings throughout the years which seem to be natural animals of some sort, "swimming" in the sky. Often these critters have plasma-like electric colors. Are they plasmoids?

Are we wrong to just assume these "critters" are all of low intelligence? They are probably an ancient form of life, manifesting and de-manifesting in the skies since the time Earth first had an atmosphere. They have had time to evolve high intelligence – more time than any other life form we can think of. Also keep in mind that the sky critters are not specifically manta rays or other ocean-life which they resemble any more than humans are specifically the gorillas whom we resemble. Of course, humans under-estimate the intelligence of other living creatures in general, but that is another subject!

Or, are these light-forms traveling on plasma corridors? A variation: What if UFOs are the plasma vehicles (plasmoid ships) of electric life-forms or possibly life forms composed of light itself? Do these light-forms travel on plasma pathways?

Remembering Science 101, lightning (electricity/light) travels across the sky and down to earth on plasma pathways or corridors. Here is another example of light/electricity traveling on plasma:

The Army has a shiny new laser plasma lightning cannon. It shoots lightning bolts down plasma channels created by laser beams to disable electronics and blow up targets, too. It is a laser plasma lightning cannon. This is indeed the grandfather of Star Trek's phaser.

Yes, 2013 humans now have a weapon which uses electricity traveling on plasma. How far along are the aliens or the future-humans who are a mere one thousand years ahead of us in their use of plasma? If there are beings who have become sheer energy, plasma would seem to be their obvious vehicle (starcraft) or passageway.

 

The Army's new laser plasma lightning cannon

This all gets a bit hard to imagine so let's back up: Some paranormal events also seem to have plasma-like manifestations; remember the old "ectoplasm" that the Spiritualists referred to? Ghosts seem to be in a state of existence between sold and gaseous; in some cases, you can see through a ghost, and yet it has a solid, comprehensible form, whereas gas is formless.

Keeping the paranormal in mind, here is the definition of plasma: "In physics, plasma is a state of matter to gas in which a certain portion of the particles ionized. Heating a gas may ionize its molecules or atoms (reduce or increase the number of electrons them), thus turning it into a plasma, which contains charged particles: positive ions and negative electrons or ions. Ionization can be induced by other means, such as strong electromagnetic field applied with a laser.

Plasma as we know it has a higher temperature than gas, which means, it is very hot. There is a form of plasma called cold plasma which is still hot. If there are light-beings, we must assume their consciousness, which is what makes them living beings, is not sensitive to extreme heat as we are with our physical bodies.

The Paranormal and UFOs as well, seem intricately connected to electromagnetic phenomena. Ghosts seem to "flow" in some cases; electric anomalies are frequent around ghosts and other paranormal events. Lights blink off and come back on. Technical devices (cell phones, cameras, car radios and more), are interfered with by UFOs and there are some reports of similar events caused by ghosts.

It should be noted also that plasma formations or plasma ships have been seen and photographed outside Earth's atmosphere as well by astronauts and telescopes. They are not just restricted to inside Earth's atmosphere. This would tend to indicate these are not ancient Earth life forms alone but that they also exist or travel to outer space. Obviously they do not need air to breathe and have a different relationship with gravity than we do. Again, the presence of intelligence within these space plasmoid enigmas seems obvious.

I do not feel that UFOs and the paranormal are the same phenomenon but I do feel some UFOs and much of the paranormal, involve sentient plasmoids. They use plasma in order to manifest, or might be a plasmoid form of life.

  

Artwork: Plasma vortex in space

Where are plasma beings from? Are light-beings or electric-beings native to Earth? Are they from an adjacent brane (multiverse)? Or are they from far distant worlds wherein light-beings flourish and have evolved far beyond the present human state?

Even though it seems certain that some UFOs are plasma-connected light-forms, this does not negate the repeated questions, "Where are they from?" and "What do they want?"

Of course, advanced corporeal beings (like humans in 400 years), might use plasma projections or technology. Certainly this possibility is less far-out than actual plasmoid life because this projection theory would only demand is slightly advanced science. Are plasma-ships sent out to electrically gather information on Earth 2013, then called back to an actual space ship outside of Earth's atmosphere? Just another possibility!

LightQuest is a fascinating book by Andrew Collins which goes into the theories I am discussing. Mr. Collin's approach is refreshing, making ufology fascinating, leaping outside the accepted box.

Collins takes a favorite foil of the most ardent UFO debunkers and turns it back on them and effectively takes it out of their hands. I'm referring to "plasma" - as in the natural formations of plasmatic balls of light energy which form as a byproduct of certain geological processes beneath the earth's surface. Infamous debunker Philip Klass, frequently presented plasma as a favorite explanation for mysterious lights whether it was the famous "Foo Fighters" which dogged military aircraft during World War II or the thousands of encounters with saucer-objects on a lonely road. Klass often pointed out that natural plasmas can act in weird and unexpected ways, giving the impression of alien intelligence operating behind them. This, he said, was true of swamp gas.

Andrew Collins agrees that plasma lights are almost certainly natural formations generated by earth-bound processes, specifically, high pressure faults beneath the surface of the earth. Plasma formations have even been created in a laboratory using pressure tools applied to certain kinds of rocks until they burst forth plasma emissions.

However, Collins takes it a step further, as am I in this article: Might natural plasma emissions actually play host or be the vehicles of-- intelligent life forms? LIGHT BEINGS! These beings use plasma to manifest into our dimension, perhaps for short periods of time. Or longer? Who knows for sure at this point, but just as lightning travels on plasma passageways, so might light-beings.

Collins explains how a natural plasma formation could be the "temporary body" of trans-human life forms. He mentions quantum entanglement, on which I have written several articles (see New Dawn Special Issue 6 on UFOs and Human Consciousness/New World Order). Physicist David Bohm's "implicate order" is a possible background framework of how all this could come together.

In Light Quest, Collins looks into the Barney and Betty Hill abduction, and the incredible events which took place at the Rendelsham military base in the U.K., and less known cases of abduction as well.
Another piece of the plasma puzzle is its possible connection to crop circles! Collins does not look into this but certainly it is a leading possibility in the crop circle mystery.

 

 Picture: Plasma UFO about to create a crop circle?

Conclusions: I stress that I also believe some UFO occupants come from time (what we call "the human future") and are probably corporeal beings, as well as other UFO occupants coming from "space" (far distant planets), who are also probably corporeal. I do not feel that "plasma" solves the UFO puzzle. I feel that we are being visited by a plethora of mind-boggling beings from all sorts of mind-boggling sources!

Regarding plasma: When you look at abduction memories which are retrieved under hypnosis and the entire elusive "I think I was abducted," or "I think I was contacted by space beings" phenomenon, it fits in nicely with a plasma/light theory. The beings encountered were "of energy" (not of physical form), and so while the human mind recorded the encounter using its usual EM circuits, nothing physical/corporeal ever took place.

The encounters were real but they were not with beings of the 1st State of Matter (solid) but rather, with beings of the 4th State of Matter (plasma/energy).

Dream levels of mind: These beings might sometimes use the "dream EM circuits" (dream levels) of the human mind so that the encounters are not easily remembered. Perhaps this is for the protection of the human, so as not to be viewed as crazy, or for hidden reasons known only to the energy beings.

Advanced Intelligence: I believe we are very wrong to assume light-beings who use plasma corridors are inherently demonic or negative. Instead, it seems logical that they have advanced far beyond what we can presently imagine and are highly intelligent. They have evolved past the need of a corporeal confirmation for their own existence; their consciousness is contained within their light-form. This is probably the evolutionary direction in which we are headed too.

However, when one really perceives this possibility, it does blow one's mind!

On top of that, as with the entire UFO phenomenon, we humans start with the finished product, so to speak: We see the UFO. Then we are off to scratch our heads, trying to begin at step one of HOW could this be? Who is in there? Where/when did it come from?

It's the same way with my own encounters. They happened. And I have spent the rest of my life researching, thinking, feeling – what happened. It has changed my life but I would not have it any other way.

The Mind Outside: We can call the morphic field, the Mind Outside (each individual mind having the "Mind Inside which connects to the Mind Outside); the Mind Outside "runs" on electric circuits just as our individual minds do.

Quantum entanglement of two minds would be an entanglement of two minds, causing those minds to "run" on the same circuitry and essentially be the same mind but in different environments. A feeling like this is reported by some humans who have encountered UFO occupants. Quantum entanglement causes morphic resonance between two minds, and it seems that light-beings would readily use such a process.

Of course, one could be entangled with a corporeal space man from a far distant planet or from the Year 2400 instead of a light-form zooming along on plasma corridors; in each case, the human of the 21st Century would absorb only what the human stage of development allowed her to absorb and learn. Perhaps that is the bottom line here: we humans must realize that we have far to go; we are not, as it turns out, the top of the cosmic evolutionary heap.

 

 Personal proof: Finally, when I gaze at these 2 photos I took in a Kilkenny, Ireland, in Spring of 1991 on a cheap camera which took 110 film, I have my own personal proof that light, plasma, and advanced intelligence is involved in the Unknown. I say "my own personal proof" because I know these two pictures (frame 1 with frame 2 following it immediately), are absolutely legitimate. I saw nothing with the naked eye and I don't think my cat Sakima did either. Are these photos UFO connected or paranormal related? Both?

The "kind" of light seems identical to the Army's laser plasma lightning cannon. This "kind" of light is somehow ABSOLUTE LIGHT. It must involve light traveling on plasma in order to create this kind of "density" of light. It is opaque light, if you will.

But is it simply a plasma phenomenon with no intelligence involved? This is where my proof of advanced intelligence comes into play; look at the form the plasma/light has taken! It is a form which I recognize in my reality, it has two chubby legs, two rounded little wings, and a round head.

A second later (second frame), it was zooming away in a near-saucer form. It must have been trying to communicate, using a form which was familiar to me or to my cat. No, it is not a teddy bear, it is not a butterfly, but the general shape and form is familiar to a human like a teddy bear or a butterfly. It is an alien intelligence trying to form an earth animal or an animal familiar to the perceiver!

I did not see anything visually but I seem to have focused my camera in both frames on the light-form. How could this be? I can only think that it did reach another level of my mind and so that level of me - did focus on the flying light-form.

This is my personal proof that:

This is a light/plasma phenomenon

It had advanced intelligence and knew about my mind (what would be meaningful to me)

It reached some level of my mind of which I was not consciously aware and that level focused my camera right on the light-form.

          Teleskop Radio Kanada Tangkap Sinyal Misterius dari Antariksa, Alien?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Liputan6.com, British Columbia - Sebuah teleskop radio baru di Kanada berhasil menangkap sinyal misterius terduga dari alien di antariksa, atau lazim dikenal dengan sebutan semburan radio cepat atau Fast Radio Bursts (FRB).

The Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME) di British Columbia, Kanada mendeteksi FRB berfrekuensi di bawah 700 MHz itu pada 25 Juli 2018. Sinyal itu kemudian diberi nama FRB 180725A.

FRB adalah semburan panjang emisi radio dalam hitungan milidetik yang berasal dari sumber yang tidak dikenal di alam semesta.

Mereka adalah salah satu misteri kosmik baru, yang pertama kali berhasil dideteksi oleh komunitas ilmuwan sekitar satu dekade lalu.

Berbagai penjelasan yang mungkin mengenai asal FRB itu beragam, termasuk semburan dari "magnetar", lubang hitam yang meledak, dan peradaban alien yang sangat maju. Demikian seperti dikutip dari CBS Sacramento, Kamis (9/8/2018).

Menanggapi seputar temuan baru FRB 180725A, pihak CHIME menyebut bahwa "masih sangat awal pada titik ini untuk menyimpulkan sumber transmisi sinyal tersebut."

Sementara itu, CHIME juga mengumumkan dalam postingan di "Astronomer's Telegram" -- jaringan daring komunitas atau penggiat pencari FRB -- bahwa mereka telah menemukan FRB frekuensi serendah 400 MHz dalam sepekan terakhir, menunjukkan bahwa sinyal itu berasal dari sumber yang tidak diketahui di Bumi.

Sejauh ini hanya satu FRB yang teramati yang terus berulang mengirim sinyal. Para peneliti menyimpulkan, sumber pengirim sinyal itu memiliki gelombang transmisi yang luar biasa kuat, karena mampu mengirimkannya melintasi alam semesta.

Ini menjadi temuan terbaru dalam studi FRB. Beberapa organisasi observatorium, seperti CHIME, terus menjaga telinga ke antariksa untuk petunjuk lebih lanjut demi membantu memecahkan misteri tersebut --serta membuka peluang untuk membuktikan kemungkinan keberadaan alien.

CHIME sendiri telah beroperasi kurang dari satu tahun. Observatorium itu dibentuk untuk mengumpulkan data tentang FRB dan pertanyaan lain yang belum terjawab dalam astrofisika.

Astronom Tangkap 15 Sinyal Misterius Serupa Tahun Lalu

Ilustrasi Alien (iStockphoto)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Tahun lalu, tim astronom yang berburu tanda-tanda kehidupan alien di alam semesta mendeteksi adanya 15 sinyal radio misterius. Sinyal tersebut berasal dari galaksi kerdil berjarak tiga miliar tahun cahaya dari Bumi.

Tim astronom tersebut merupakan bagian dari proyek Breakthrough Listen yang digagas oleh miliarder Rusia Yuri Milner dan fisikawan Inggris Stephen Hawking. Proyek itu bertujuan untuk mencari tahu apakah manusia hidup 'seorang diri' di alam semesta yang sangat luas.

Meski semburan sinyal radio (FRB) kemungkinan tak berasal dari peradaban alien, para ilmuwan mengatakan bahwa alat yang mereka miliki berfungsi dengan baik dan siap menangkap tanda-tanda kehidupan alien.

FRB merupakan sinyal radio dari sebuah tempat di angkasa luar yang berlangsung hanya beberapa milidetik. Semburan itu berasal dari sumber yang tidak diketahui dan pertama kali ditemukan pada 2012.

Dikutip dari The Telegraph, Minggu 3 September 2017, pada awalnya para ilmuwan menganggap bahwa sinyal tersebut merupakan dampak dari peristiwa besar di angkasa luar, seperti supernova. Tapi pada tahun 2015 dan 2016, sinyal itu muncul lagi.

Dalam percobaan baru, para ilmuwan dari University of California, Berkeley, mengamati galaksi yang sama pada frekuensi lebih tinggi dibanding yang mereka gunakan saat mengamati ledakan asli. Hasilnya, mereka menemukan 15 sinyal lain.

Terdapat sejumlah perkiraan sumber sinyal, mulai dari bintang neutron yang berputar dengan medan magnet sangat tinggi, hingga sumber energi yang digunakan peradaban luar bumi untuk pesawat angkasa luar mereka.

"Kami tidak tahu dari mana mereka berasal. Saat ini hanya terdapat 30 sinyal yang kita ketahui dan hanya satu yang kita ketahui berulang, di mana kita dapat melihatnya lagi dan lagi. Kami melihat satu sinyal itu pada frekuensi yang lebih tinggi," ujar Dr Vishal Gajjar dari UC Berkeley Research.

"Jika ada bentuk kehidupan yang dapat menghasilkan sinyal yang dikenali oleh peradaban lain maka ini bisa menjadi salah satu jalan untuk melakukan hal tersebut, tetapi saya rasa hal tersebut tidak datang dari peradaban yang pintar."

"Teori yang ada tidak sebanding dengan sumber yang valid. Kami menemukan lebih banyak pertanyaan daripada jawaban. Semakin dalam kami melakukan studi, semakin banyak hal-hal aneh yang kami temukan," ujar Gajjar.

Breakthrough Listen adalah gagasan astronomi global senilai US$ 100 juta dolar yang diluncurkan pada 2015 oleh Hawking and Milner. Mereka mempunyai tim di seluruh dunia untuk mencari bukti-bukti kehidupan alien menggunakan teleskop.

Program pendahuluan selama 10 tahun akan mensurvei 10 juta bintang yang terdekat dari Bumi, memindai seluruh bidang galaksi Bima Sakti. Di luar galaksi, program tersebut akan merekam pesan dari 100 galaksi terdekat pada 10 milyar frekuensi yang berbeda.

Pada saat konferensi pers di London, Hawking berkata bahwa kini saatnya berkomitmen untuk menemukan jawaban tentang kehidupan di luar Bumi alias alien.

Sinyal terakhir ditangkap oleh Green Bank Telescope di West Virginia, Amerika Serikat. Sembilan juta relawan di seluruh dunia juga menyumbangkan program komputasi cadangan mereka untuk mencari data yang diperoleh dari teleskop.

"Mereka melihat sumber yang sudah dikenal sebagai yang paling aktif dari sumber FRB yang telah ditemukan," ujar astronom Royal Lord Martin Rees yang memimpin proyek tersebut.

"Beberapa jurnalis telah menulis bahwa ini adalah bukti adanya kehidupan alien. Tidak ada yang mengklaim ini. Tapi itu menegaskan bahwa perlatan mereka bekerja dengan baik," imbuh Rees.

          The 36 Best Things to Do in Portland This Weekend: August 10-12      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
An Improv Fest! A Radler Fest! A Panic! (at the Disco), KBOO Still Rocks the Block at 50, and XRAY Causes a Heatwave! by Mercury Things to Do Staff

August isn't playing around, is it? You think you have a handle on all the awesome goings-on in the city and then WHAM: Stumptown Improv Festival. BAM: Portland Radler Festival. THANK YOU MA'AM: KBOO's 50th Birthday Block Party. And that's not even really getting into all the fun stuff that's going down via Shabazz Palaces, Jack White, Lavender Country, Panic! at the Disco, and the Portland Timbers. OH! And there's a meteor shower happening, too. It's a real busy weekend ahead; hit the links below and load your plate accordingly.


Jump to: Friday | Saturday | Sunday

Friday, Aug 10

Shabazz Palaces, Stas THEE Boss
Ishmael Butler and Tendai Maraire of Seattle hip-hop duo Shabazz Palaces are masters of abstract texture and otherworldly sonic drift. On 2017’s Quazarz: Born on a Gangster Star and Quazarz vs. the Jealous Machines, Butler trips through a world that has mistaken the map for the territory. When this strange dream of a universe clarifies and coheres, Butler can flip the modern nightmare into something sublime. CHRIS STAMM
9 pm, Doug Fir, $20

Hop Along, Thin Lips
Hop Along dropped their fourth studio album Bark Your Head Off, Dog in April, and it delivers more of what fans have come to love about the Philadelphia indie rock titans: big hooks, lyrics that cut to the emotional core, and Frances Quinlan’s shapeshifting vocals, with the folksy addition of strings warming up the edges of the band’s heart-swelling anthems.
9 pm, Wonder Ballroom, $16-20, all ages

Stumptown Improv Festival
Stumptown Improv Festival is one of Portland’s best comedy festivals (maybe the best, but we don’t compare Hattori Hanzō swords). I’m continually impressed by the way the Stumptown team ups the ante each year, while keeping the energy high and their hearts pure. Celebrating its fifth year, Stumptown’s lineup looks appropriately awesome with the ridiculously good troupe White Women making their way up from LA and NY hip-hop group North Coast doing their own version of improv Hamilton (whaaat?). SUZETTE SMITH
Fri-Sun, Artists Repertory Theatre, click here for scheduled performances, $15-110

KBOO's 50th Birthday Block Party
KBOO Community Radio celebrates its 50th Birthday with an all-day block party, with food, drinks, speakers, radio station tours, and giveaways, along with live music from Mic Crenshaw, Deena Bee, Rich Hunter, Ayatollah Beats, King Tim 33 1/3, Burial Ground Sound, Los Supremos de los Hermanos Flores, The Stops, Bottleneck Blues Band, Zahira & Rising Buffalo Tribe, Grateful Buds, and Julie & The WayVes.
noon, KBOO Radio, free

Corrina Repp, Luke Wyland
xIt took an ill-fated cross-country migration, a nomadic songwriting regimen in northern France, Los Angeles, and Louisville, Kentucky, and some intense introspection for Corrina Repp to come to terms with the pitfalls of failed romance. And on her fifth solo album, How a Fantasy Will Kills Us All, she bares the soul she took along for that journey. Engineered by Danny Seim of Menomena, the record bends and moans in all the right ways, utilizing loop-laced soundscapes as the bedrock for Repp’s beautifully resonant lyrics. With tinges of experimental folk and art-pop, grizzled ambient layers permeate the fringes of songs like “Need You/Don’t Need You” and the cathartic title track. Shades of Repp’s brilliant collaborative work with Joe Haege in the yesteryear Portland project Tu Fawning abound—a creative palette that suits Repp’s brooding lo-fi psych well. Rejoice in tonight’s record release show as Repp performs solo in the cozy confines of Beacon Sound. RYAN J. PRADO
8 pm, Beacon Sound, free

Jenn Champion, My Body, Briana Marela
Last month, Jenn Champion (the musician formerly known as S) dropped her new record Single Rider, which she wanted to be “a cross between Drake and Billy Joel.” Thankfully, it’s not—instead, Champion makes a screeching left turn away from the introspective pop-punk of S to turn her attention toward smooth, glimmering synth-pop made in collaboration with Seattle producer SYML. With echoing drum machine beats, airy vocals, and simple yet straightforward lyrics about the blurred line between infatuation and love, the album’s 13 tracks conjure strobe-lit dancefloors and drives along the coast at sunset with the windows down (especially standouts like “O.M.G. (I’m All Over It)” and “The Move”). CIARA DOLAN
9 pm, Mississippi Studios, $12-14

Mondo Trasho: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
The last great (ish) thing Terry Gilliam ever did, his adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson's gonzo travelogue is probably the closest anyone ever got to lifting the lid on Thompson's dome and accurately portraying the nest of writhing, hyper-aggressive lizards screaming, shitting, and fucking behind his eyeballs. It's also one of the few movies about being fundamentally altered that works best while seen stone sober. Sure, people love getting ripped out of their fucking gourd and putting on the Johnny and Benicio show (btw: this is also probably the last great thing Depp ever did, too), but the real power of Gilliam's work is in how he manages to translate the feeling of Hunter's astronomical fucked-upitude to utterly straight, square minds. BOBBY ROBERTS
7:30 pm, Hollywood Theatre, $7-9

Beach House, Sound of Ceres
Since Victoria LeGrand first sang about “heartbreak and ponytails” over Alex Scally’s bewitching guitar tones on Beach House’s 2006 debut, the Baltimore duo has proven themselves to be masters of a new kind of woozy dream-pop. It hasn’t evolved too much since then, but that’s a good thing—the band’s new album 7 more or less follows the same formula, with warped electro-pop melodies floating behind LeGrand’s voice, which somehow always seems detached but intense.
8 pm, Keller Auditorium, $27.50-35, all ages

Usnea, Amarok, Hell
Over the past couple of years, Usnea’s sound has progressed into an introspective realm while preserving their signature downcast dissonance, a supreme sonic representation of the blight of modern humanity. CERVANTE POPE
9 pm, Tonic Lounge, $7-10

High on the Hog
A cannabis-themed outdoor all-you-can-eat pig-roast as presented by Paley's Place. What does "cannabis-themed" mean in this case? Its not just a bunch of pot leaves everywhere. The pig they're roasting was raised on raw cannabis at Moto Perpetuo Farm, and the drinks by Coalition and Ablis are CBD-infused.
5 pm, Paley's Place, $85

Bruce Hornsby & the Noisemakers
The singer/songwriter and keyboardist known for his improvisational live performances returns to Revolution Hall with his backing band in tow.
8 pm, Revolution Hall, $42.50-45

8th Annual Independence Bollywood Dance Party
Jai Ho knows how to throw down, and the 8th anniversary of their Independence Bollywood Party celebrating India and Pakistan's freedom is going to be one of the grandest examples of the positive party vibes they're known for.
9 pm, XV, $7-10


Saturday, Aug 11

Portland Radler Festival
August is hot. Too hot to bike, breathe, or do anything with your life, really. Except drink beer, and there’s no beer more refreshing than a shandy or a radler. Some beer snobs may think, "adding juice to beer? What are you, a child?” And the answer to that is to flip them off and enjoy your fruity, refreshing beverage in peace with the knowledge that the summer drink has a long history in Germany, Beer’s homeland. KELLY KENOYER
noon, StormBreaker Brewing

Jack White
Okay, so Jack White’s new album Boarding House Reach isn’t very good (to be honest, I haven’t enjoyed an album of his since 2012’s Blunderbuss). But he’s still Jack White—former White Stripe and current rock ’n’ weirdo. And in true rock ’n’ roll weirdo fashion, he won’t be allowing any cell phones at this show. CIARA DOLAN
8 pm, Rose Quarter Memorial Coliseum, $40-70

Portland Timbers vs. Vancouver Whitecaps
Tonight’s Cascadia Cup matchup between the Timbers and the Whitecaps brings the Alphonso Davies farewell tour to Portland. The 17-year-old Canadian winger will finish out the season with Vancouver before making his career-altering move to European giants Bayern Munich. It’s a landmark moment for the MLS, and the chance to see one of the top prospects in the world take on the Timbers in a rivalry match at Providence Park is worthy of top billing. CHIPP TERWILLIGER
8 pm, Providence Park, $42-175

Lavender Country, Jenny Don't & the Spurs, Soft Butch
Country music is still overwhelmingly heterosexual, even with the success of openly gay acts like Little Bandit and Brandy Clark. Forty-five years ago, the situation was even worse, with the Nashville establishment opening their minds just enough to allow an African American artist Charley Pride through the gates. Stepping out of the closet and onstage at the Grand Ole Opry? That would have been a death sentence. That’s what makes the lone album by Seattle outfit Lavender Country such a remarkable outlier. Released initially as a private press LP in 1973, it was the first gay country album ever, beating out Peter Grudzien’s The Unicorn by a year. But where Grudzien’s work was steeped in the psych-folk underground of his New York home, led by singer/songwriter Patrick Haggerty, Lavender Country attempted to keep up with the sleepy honky tonk balladry and jumped-up boot-stompers of the time. Even though the band played shows up and down the West Coast, Lavender Country didn’t make a dent in the cultural consciousness of the time. Haggerty hung up his spurs for the next four decades, concentrating on activism and raising a family. The project has finally gotten its due in recent years, thanks to a reissue of the album by North Carolina label Paradise of Bachelors, which has inspired Haggerty to dust off his guitar and cowboy hat and play shows around the US. The messages in the music sadly still resonate to a modern audience, but they no longer have to be delivered from the shadows. ROBERT HAM
9 pm, The Fixin' To, $10

Summer Cannibals, Mini Blinds
Summer Cannibals have been living proof of the greatness of Portland’s indie rock scene since releasing their 2013 debut No Makeup. The band has grown into their moody rock ’n’ roll sound on two full-lengths released on their own record label, and another on iconic Portland label Kill Rock Stars. Summer Cannibals’ unapologetic, empowered lyrics, fuzzed-out guitar riffs, and power-pop hooks will get stuck in your head all day. DELANEY MOTTER
5 pm, Green Noise Records, free, all ages

Ganja & Hess
One of the more unique takes on vampire mythology ever filmed, 1973’s Ganja & Hess returns to theaters for the first time in a few decades with this “director’s cut” version that restores the breadth of director Bill Gunn’s vision of the film, which was commissioned to be a cheap Blacula ripoff. Gunn was not interested in being a party to something so simple, and instead took the $350,000, cast Night of the Living Dead’s Duane Jones, and made a fever-dream of existential horror. Producers saw all this monologuing and angst linking scenes of sex and violence, decided that about 40 minutes of all that could just go away, and proceeded to hack the film down to 76 minutes. All that stuff is back now, and the already rich, kaleidoscopic messiness is just that much deeper. BOBBY ROBERTS
9:30 pm, NW Film Center's Whitsell Auditorium, $8-9

Bizarre Love Triangle: '80s New Wave & Synth Pop
DJs Gregarious, The Art of Hot, and Narcissus My Reflection dig into their crates and pull out only the finest in new wave and synth pop for your listening pleasure. Hosted by Anna Jenkins.

Willow
Solo: A Star Wars Story was not the first Lucasfilm project Ron Howard directed. In 1987, George Lucas, who created a world-changing film series 10 years prior because he couldn't get the rights to Flash Gordon, asked Howard to replicate that phenomenon after not getting the rights to Lord of the Rings. Thus: Willow, starring Warwick Davis and Val Kilmer as pseudo-Frodo and Asshole Aragorn, off to fight evil witches, skull-faced enforcers, and rescue baby princesses. Willow is an ungainly little family film, pinballing between pulp fantasy, awkward romance, cornball kid's flick (ugh, the fucking Brownies), and Harryhausen-esque adventure, but thanks to Kilmer's charm, Davis' pluck, and one hell of a score from James Horner, Willow—while getting nowhere near the resonance of Lord of the Rings, ends up being a mostly-okay fantasy pastiche.

Dylan Carlson, Mary Lattimore
If instrumental music were a coin, Dylan Carlson and Mary Lattimore would be its two sides. Carlson is from the Pacific Northwest, he's old enough to have roomed with Kurt Cobain, and he has spent the past couple of decades wrangling doomed drones and dusky tones out of his guitar in an effort to explore the fringes of American sound. His main gig, Earth, is one of the most influential heavy instrumental bands in recent memory, and his new album Conquistador is his first under his own name. Lattimore is from the East Coast, she’s a rising young talent, and her exquisite and ethereal approach to the harp has made her an in-demand accompanist for artists like Sharon Van Etten, Kurt Vile, and Jarvis Cocker. Her new-agey new album Hundreds of Days is one of the prettiest and most calming releases of 2018—a year when pretty and calming music is so very welcome.

Panic! at the Disco, Haley Kiyoko
Even if alternative pop-rock band Panic! At the Disco’s music isn’t your thing, there’s no denying they’ve got an overflowing handful of bops—such as 2016’s Sinatra-like “Death of a Bachelor.” With powerhouse singer Brendon Urie as its frontman and lots of supplemental horns and strings, Panic! dropped its sixth studio album Pray for the Wicked earlier this summer. Standouts from the 11-track project include “Dancing’s Not a Crime,” “King of the Clouds,” and “One of the Drunks.” Come for the older hits, but stay to hear Urie’s soaring vocals on his jazz-influenced new material.

Spec Script: Entourage
I know little to nothing about the TV show Entourage. (It’s about leisure suits, right?) And I’m looking forward to knowing even less about it thanks to this month’s Spec Script reading, where a local comedian (in this case the super-funny Laura Anne Whitley) pens a script for an episode of a show they have never seen. Is John Stamos on Entourage? It sort of doesn’t matter. What matters is who Whitley THINKS is on Entourage. Minority Retort’s Julia Ramos and many hilarious others help table read the glorious creation. SUZETTE SMITH

Deafheaven, Drab Majesty, Uniform
It can be difficult to align Deafheaven with any one genre—the band’s soft, hazy tendencies don’t quite fit into black metal, yet their harshness alienates them from shoegaze. Regardless, Deafheaven's new record Ordinary Corrupt Human Love contains the best of both genres. Throughout the album, frontman George Lesage Clarke balances melancholy and delicacy while tackling songs that seethe with frustration and rage. CERVANTE POPE

The Princess Bride
This movie is 100 percent pure charm in film form. That’s not to say Rob Reiner’s adaptation of William Goldman’s bestselling novel isn’t also shot through with moments of real romance (“As you wish”) and cathartic satisfaction (“I want my father back you sonofabitch,”) but the reason this movie occupies such a precious place for so many is the charm radiating off its styrofoamy sets, through a score that sounds like it’s coming out of a Casio keyboard’s single built-in-speaker, humming under dialogue written so beautifully the actors can’t help but smile at the magic flowing out of their mouths. It proves you don’t need $200 million and two years of post-production to realize pure imagination. Not when you’ve got a big heart and all the charm in the world. BOBBY ROBERTS

Astronomers this week have been warming up for an encounter as far from the Sun as ever attempted. It's the finale of the New Horizons mission which successfully passed Pluto in 2015 and is now on its way to Ultima Thule - a Kuiper belt object on the edge of the solar system. Marc Buie is just back from Senegal where he and a team of fellow astronomers have been observing this ancient rock to get a final look at its size and shape, before the momentous flyby on Jan 1st 2019. He explains why the encounter will be so valuable in unlocking key secrets in the formation of our solar system. It's the 150th birthday of the discovery of helium, which, after hydrogen is the second most abundant element in the universe. It's surprisingly rare on Earth, but it makes up much of the content of the gas giants in our local neighbourhood, Jupiter and Saturn. Adam Rutherford hears from particle physicist and Science Museum curator Harry Cliff on how it was first discovered through a telescope rather than in a lab, and Jessica Spake of Exeter University who after an 18-year search has used similar techniques to discover helium around an exoplanet 200 light-years away. We hear from scientist and author Dan Davis from the University of Manchester, the next in our preview of authors shortlisted for this year's Royal Society book prize. The Beautiful Cure, is the rollicking story of how the intricate immune system came to be understood. And there's an update from physicist Helen Czerski. She's part of a 40-strong team of field scientists on board the Oden, a Swedish ice breaker and research ship. They're set to find a suitable iceberg, and moor to get to grips with the factors that guide the arctic weather patterns. Producer: Adrian Washbourne.
          Ανακαλύφθηκε ο πιο μακρινός ραδιογαλαξίας στο σύμπαν      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Βρίσκεται σε απόσταση 12 δισεκατομμυρίων ετών, καταρρίπτοντας ένα ρεκόρ από το 1999!
Ευρωπαίοι αστρονόμοι κατέρριψαν, μετά από σχεδόν 20 χρόνια (το 1999), το ρεκόρ του πιο μακρινού ραδιογαλαξία που έχει ποτέ ανακαλυφθεί. Ο νέος κάτοχος του ρεκόρ απέχει περίπου 12 δισεκατομμύρια έτη φωτός από τη Γη και το φως του που έφθασε στον πλανήτη μας, προέρχεται από μια εποχή, όταν το σύμπαν είχε μόνο το 7% της σημερινής ηλικίας του, δηλαδή ήταν περίπου ενός δισεκατομμυρίου ετών.

Οι ερευνητές, με επικεφαλής τον Ααγιούς Σαξένα του ολλανδικού Αστεροσκοπείου του Λέιντεν, που θα κάνουν τη σχετική δημοσίευση στο περιοδικό «Monthly Notices» της βρετανικής Βασιλικής Αστρονομικής Εταιρείας, χρησιμοποίησαν αρχικά το Γιγάντιο Ραδιοτηλεσκόπιο (GMRT) στην Ινδία για να κάνουν την ανακάλυψη και την επιβεβαίωσαν στη συνέχεια με τη βοήθεια των τηλεσκοπίων Gemini North στη Χαβάη και Large Binocular Telescope στην Αριζόνα.
Οι ραδιογαλαξίες είναι πολύ σπάνια αντικείμενα στο σύμπαν. Πρόκειται για κολοσσιαίους γαλαξίες που έχουν μια τεράστια μαύρη τρύπα στο κέντρο τους, η οποία «ρουφάει» συνεχώς αέρια και σκόνη από τον περίγυρό της, ενώ παράλληλα εκτοξεύει στο διάστημα «ριπές» υψηλής ενέργειας, που επιταχύνουν φορτισμένα σωματίδια σχεδόν στην ταχύτητα του φωτός. Αυτoί οι «πίδακες» είναι έντονα αισθητοί από τη Γη στο μήκος κύματος των ραδιοσυχνοτήτων.
Το γεγονός ότι τέτοιοι γαλαξίες υπάρχουν στο μακρινό στο χώρο και στο χρόνο -δηλαδή στο πρώιμο- σύμπαν, έχει εκπλήξει τους αστρονόμους. «Είναι εκπληκτικό πώς αυτοί οι γαλαξίες πρόλαβαν να "χτίσουν" τη μάζα τους σε τόσο σύντομη περίοδο του χρόνου», δήλωσε ο Σαξένα. Η επόμενη γενιά ραδιοτηλεσκοπίων, μαζί με τα μελλοντικά ακόμη ισχυρότερα οπτικά και υπέρυθρα τηλεσκόπια, θα επιτρέψει στους επιστήμονες να ανιχνεύσουν ραδιογαλαξίες σε ακόμη μεγαλύτερες αποστάσεις στο χωροχρόνο.

This image shows data from a massive observing campaign that includes NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory. These Chandra data have provided strong evidence for the existence of so-called intermediate-mass black holes (IMBHs). Combined with a separate study also using Chandra data, these results may allow astronomers to better understand how the very largest black holes in the early Universe formed, as described in our latest press release.

The COSMOS ("cosmic evolution survey") Legacy Survey has assembled data from some of the world's most powerful telescopes spanning the electromagnetic spectrum. This image contains Chandra data from this survey, equivalent to about 4.6 million seconds of observing time. The colors in this image represent different levels of X-ray energy detected by Chandra. Here the lowest-energy X-rays are red, the medium band is green, and the highest-energy X-rays observed by Chandra are blue. Most of the colored dots in this image are black holes. Data from the Spitzer Space Telescope are shown in grey. The inset shows an artist's impression of a growing black hole in the center of a galaxy. A disk of material surrounding the black hole and a jet of outflowing material are also depicted.

Two new separate studies using the Chandra COSMOS-Legacy survey data and other Chandra data have independently collected samples of IMBHs, an elusive category of black holes in between stellar mass black holes and the supermassive black holes found in the central regions of massive galaxies.

One team of researchers identified 40 growing black holes in dwarf galaxies. Twelve of them are located at distances more than five billion light years from Earth and the most distant is 10.9 billion light years away, the most distant growing black hole in a dwarf galaxy ever seen. Most of these sources are likely IMBHs with masses that are about 10,000 to 100,000 times that of the Sun.

A second team found a separate, important sample of possible IMBHs in galaxies that are closer to Earth. In this sample, the most distant IMBH candidate is about 2.8 billion light years from Earth and about 90% of the IMBH candidates they discovered are no more than 1.3 billion light years away.

They detected 305 galaxies in their survey with black hole masses less than 300,000 solar masses. Observations with Chandra and with ESA's XMM-Newton of a small part of this sample show that about half of the 305 IMBH candidates are likely to be valid IMBHs. The masses for the ten sources detected with X-ray observations were determined to be between 40,000 and 300,000 times the mass of the Sun.

IMBHs may be able to explain how the very biggest black holes, the supermassive ones, were able to form so quickly after the Big Bang. One leading explanation is that supermassive black holes grow over time from smaller black holes "seeds" containing about a hundred times the Sun's mass. Some of these seeds should merge to form IMBHs. Another explanation is that they form very quickly from the collapse of a giant cloud of gas with a mass equal to hundreds of thousands of times that of the Sun. There is yet to be a consensus among astronomers on the role IMBHs may play.

A paper describing the COSMOS-Legacy result by Mar Mezcua (Institute for Space Sciences, Spain) and colleagues was published in the August issue of the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society and is available online. The paper by Igor Chilingarian (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics) on the closer IMBH sample is being published in the August 10th issue of The Astrophysical Journal and is available online.

          Are UFO Occupants Composed of Plasma, Their Life-Force Residing in Electric Energy?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

After many years of being involved in UFOlogy, I have concluded that some UFOs are intricately connected to plasma. I would like to share my thoughts on this possibility. In doing so, I keep in mind that although we usually look for life forms similar to ours (corporeal life having formed in an earth-like environment), where life really seems to dwell is in our consciousness. No doubt, in consciousness throughout the universe.

Our consciousness exists in our minds and according to modern science, our minds "run" on electric circuitry. Does life itself dwell in this electric energy rather than in the corporeal body? Is this why we "pass on" to other realms rather than "dying?" Humans tend to not even consider this because we perceive ourselves as corporeal but perhaps we should reassess the nature of our own beinghood while we also consider that electricity might be the source of life, rather than organic matter.

In many sightings, the UFOs have a plasma-like appearance; for example, this description was given by a witness: http://www.examiner.com/article/pennsylvania-witnesses-videotape-two-glowing-red-orbs-hovering-over-field?CID=examiner_alerts_article

Many times, UFOs defy gravity making right turns or small circles at tremendous speeds; science as we know it concludes that occupants inside they would die from the "g forces" involved. This is one argument by skeptics against the reality of UFOs.

 

Picture: Artwork of plasma UFO

Are UFOs plasma formations? However, what if the UFOs are composed of plasma? The assumption is then that "of course" there are no life forms in plasma, so UFOs are obviously just weird plasma phenomena devoid of life. Even the infamous "swamp gas" had a plasma concept behind it.

That plasma can have no intelligence is a conclusion of science as we know it. However, we still have much to learn scientifically, and we are wise to keep in mind that advanced science as witnessed by less-advanced beings (us), seems to be impossible even though we do witness it as it unfolds. The trouble with stating that plasma is just plasma is that UFOs display intelligent behavior, even if it seems to be alien behavior to us. We can't quite make sense of why UFOs act as they do, but their intelligence (or that of their occupants), has been proven over and over again.

With thanks to Mark Heley's website http://www.netplaces.com/guide-to-2012/ for this UAP section: In fact, Project Condign was the name given to a top secret UFO study undertaken by the British Government's Defense Intelligence Staff (DIS) between 1997 and 2000. The report looked into all reported sightings of UFOs over the previous three decades. Between 1967 and 1997, there were 100–750 credible incidences a year in British air space alone. The project came to the remarkable conclusion that the phenomenon was indisputably real, but that they weren't dealing with physical craft. Instead, the report concludes that the UFO phenomenon is caused by highly charged atmospheric plasmas. These were named unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs).

In a high-energy state, the UAPs are visible to the naked eye, but in a lower energy state they may only be visible in the infrared spectrum or on radar. The UAPs generally have a magnetic field about 5,000 times weaker than Earth's, but the UAP's field is pulsed and rotating, which seems to provide them with their source of propulsion.

The UAPs were also capable of flying in formation and quite frequently formed complex geometric arrangements of three to five balls that gave a very good approximation of the underside shape of a classic UFO. These balls were able to move synchronously and were observed to be able to join and then part again. When flying in formation, light in between the balls of plasmas often appears to be blocked, giving the appearance of a solid craft.

 

The power of these UAPs is so great that close proximity to their plasma fields can seriously harm a vehicle or person. The Project Condign report notes that scientists in the former Soviet Union have taken a particular interest in the UFO/UAP phenomena and are pursuing related techniques for military purposes. Several Russian and Chinese aircraft have been destroyed chasing UFOs.

Parts of the Condign Report are still classified and have not been published. These include the relationship between UAPs and solar sunspot cycles, various drawings, and photographs. However, the report does include the admission that the significance of ley lines and Earth energy grids were investigated as part of the report's study.

The effects of proximity to these UAP plasmoids can be wide ranging in the people who encounter them:

· 75 percent of people felt odd or dizzy or reported tingling sensations.

· 65 percent saw vivid images and/or said they experienced pleasant vibrations.

· Only 40 percent said they experienced fear or terror.

The Condign Report also notes that there are significant neurological effects on humans who encountered the UAPs. Contact with UAPs created serious perceptual and temporal distortions. The Condign Report's conclusion after three years of gathering and processing data is that there is "no evidence that they (UAPs) . . . represent any hostile intent" and that "further investigation should be made into the applicability of various characteristics of plasmas in novel military applications."

Russian UFO Research

Extensive research on these plasmoids has also been carried out by the Russian Academy of Sciences in a department headed by V. G. Azahazha. They concluded that these phenomena are highly mobile high-energy plasma vortexes, which they call UFOs. Their studies showed that these plasma UFOs exhibited the following behaviors:

· Gradual growth

· Splitting into two or more separate parts

· Dissolution to invisibility

· Disparate bright lights merging into larger formations (often reported as small craft joining the mother ship and forming a row of portholes)

· Disappearance, accompanied by a smell

· Rotation, nonlinear motion

· Weak thermal radiation

· Translucence, haloes, blackness

· Beamed light emissions

The beamed light emissions are explained by the Russian scientists as "discharge, or leakage paths" that allow the plasma to "float off" and to change direction, seemingly at will. (end of Mark Heley's http://www.netplaces.com/guide-to-2012/ contribution)

Is there intelligent life within plasma formations? "…change directions seemingly at will?" So let's ask THE question: Might UFO beings actually be a form of life within plasma? Or simply - a plasma form of life?

If they are a plasma form of life, we tend to assume they are primitive life, like an amoeba, or perhaps a jellyfish. Of course there have been many "jelly fish" and "manta ray" UFO sightings throughout the years which seem to be natural animals of some sort, "swimming" in the sky. Often these critters have plasma-like electric colors. Are they plasmoids?

Are we wrong to just assume these "critters" are all of low intelligence? They are probably an ancient form of life, manifesting and de-manifesting in the skies since the time Earth first had an atmosphere. They have had time to evolve high intelligence – more time than any other life form we can think of. Also keep in mind that the sky critters are not specifically manta rays or other ocean-life which they resemble any more than humans are specifically the gorillas whom we resemble. Of course, humans under-estimate the intelligence of other living creatures in general, but that is another subject!

Or, are these light-forms traveling on plasma corridors? A variation: What if UFOs are the plasma vehicles (plasmoid ships) of electric life-forms or possibly life forms composed of light itself? Do these light-forms travel on plasma pathways?

Remembering Science 101, lightning (electricity/light) travels across the sky and down to earth on plasma pathways or corridors. Here is another example of light/electricity traveling on plasma:

The Army has a shiny new laser plasma lightning cannon. It shoots lightning bolts down plasma channels created by laser beams to disable electronics and blow up targets, too. It is a laser plasma lightning cannon. This is indeed the grandfather of Star Trek's phaser.

Yes, 2013 humans now have a weapon which uses electricity traveling on plasma. How far along are the aliens or the future-humans who are a mere one thousand years ahead of us in their use of plasma? If there are beings who have become sheer energy, plasma would seem to be their obvious vehicle (starcraft) or passageway.

 

The Army's new laser plasma lightning cannon

This all gets a bit hard to imagine so let's back up: Some paranormal events also seem to have plasma-like manifestations; remember the old "ectoplasm" that the Spiritualists referred to? Ghosts seem to be in a state of existence between sold and gaseous; in some cases, you can see through a ghost, and yet it has a solid, comprehensible form, whereas gas is formless.

Keeping the paranormal in mind, here is the definition of plasma: "In physics, plasma is a state of matter to gas in which a certain portion of the particles ionized. Heating a gas may ionize its molecules or atoms (reduce or increase the number of electrons them), thus turning it into a plasma, which contains charged particles: positive ions and negative electrons or ions. Ionization can be induced by other means, such as strong electromagnetic field applied with a laser.

Plasma as we know it has a higher temperature than gas, which means, it is very hot. There is a form of plasma called cold plasma which is still hot. If there are light-beings, we must assume their consciousness, which is what makes them living beings, is not sensitive to extreme heat as we are with our physical bodies.

The Paranormal and UFOs as well, seem intricately connected to electromagnetic phenomena. Ghosts seem to "flow" in some cases; electric anomalies are frequent around ghosts and other paranormal events. Lights blink off and come back on. Technical devices (cell phones, cameras, car radios and more), are interfered with by UFOs and there are some reports of similar events caused by ghosts.

It should be noted also that plasma formations or plasma ships have been seen and photographed outside Earth's atmosphere as well by astronauts and telescopes. They are not just restricted to inside Earth's atmosphere. This would tend to indicate these are not ancient Earth life forms alone but that they also exist or travel to outer space. Obviously they do not need air to breathe and have a different relationship with gravity than we do. Again, the presence of intelligence within these space plasmoid enigmas seems obvious.

I do not feel that UFOs and the paranormal are the same phenomenon but I do feel some UFOs and much of the paranormal, involve sentient plasmoids. They use plasma in order to manifest, or might be a plasmoid form of life.

  

Artwork: Plasma vortex in space

Where are plasma beings from? Are light-beings or electric-beings native to Earth? Are they from an adjacent brane (multiverse)? Or are they from far distant worlds wherein light-beings flourish and have evolved far beyond the present human state?

Even though it seems certain that some UFOs are plasma-connected light-forms, this does not negate the repeated questions, "Where are they from?" and "What do they want?"

Of course, advanced corporeal beings (like humans in 400 years), might use plasma projections or technology. Certainly this possibility is less far-out than actual plasmoid life because this projection theory would only demand is slightly advanced science. Are plasma-ships sent out to electrically gather information on Earth 2013, then called back to an actual space ship outside of Earth's atmosphere? Just another possibility!

LightQuest is a fascinating book by Andrew Collins which goes into the theories I am discussing. Mr. Collin's approach is refreshing, making ufology fascinating, leaping outside the accepted box.

Collins takes a favorite foil of the most ardent UFO debunkers and turns it back on them and effectively takes it out of their hands. I'm referring to "plasma" - as in the natural formations of plasmatic balls of light energy which form as a byproduct of certain geological processes beneath the earth's surface. Infamous debunker Philip Klass, frequently presented plasma as a favorite explanation for mysterious lights whether it was the famous "Foo Fighters" which dogged military aircraft during World War II or the thousands of encounters with saucer-objects on a lonely road. Klass often pointed out that natural plasmas can act in weird and unexpected ways, giving the impression of alien intelligence operating behind them. This, he said, was true of swamp gas.

Andrew Collins agrees that plasma lights are almost certainly natural formations generated by earth-bound processes, specifically, high pressure faults beneath the surface of the earth. Plasma formations have even been created in a laboratory using pressure tools applied to certain kinds of rocks until they burst forth plasma emissions.

However, Collins takes it a step further, as am I in this article: Might natural plasma emissions actually play host or be the vehicles of-- intelligent life forms? LIGHT BEINGS! These beings use plasma to manifest into our dimension, perhaps for short periods of time. Or longer? Who knows for sure at this point, but just as lightning travels on plasma passageways, so might light-beings.

Collins explains how a natural plasma formation could be the "temporary body" of trans-human life forms. He mentions quantum entanglement, on which I have written several articles (see New Dawn Special Issue 6 on UFOs and Human Consciousness/New World Order). Physicist David Bohm's "implicate order" is a possible background framework of how all this could come together.

In Light Quest, Collins looks into the Barney and Betty Hill abduction, and the incredible events which took place at the Rendelsham military base in the U.K., and less known cases of abduction as well.
Another piece of the plasma puzzle is its possible connection to crop circles! Collins does not look into this but certainly it is a leading possibility in the crop circle mystery.

 

 Picture: Plasma UFO about to create a crop circle?

Conclusions: I stress that I also believe some UFO occupants come from time (what we call "the human future") and are probably corporeal beings, as well as other UFO occupants coming from "space" (far distant planets), who are also probably corporeal. I do not feel that "plasma" solves the UFO puzzle. I feel that we are being visited by a plethora of mind-boggling beings from all sorts of mind-boggling sources!

Regarding plasma: When you look at abduction memories which are retrieved under hypnosis and the entire elusive "I think I was abducted," or "I think I was contacted by space beings" phenomenon, it fits in nicely with a plasma/light theory. The beings encountered were "of energy" (not of physical form), and so while the human mind recorded the encounter using its usual EM circuits, nothing physical/corporeal ever took place.

The encounters were real but they were not with beings of the 1st State of Matter (solid) but rather, with beings of the 4th State of Matter (plasma/energy).

Dream levels of mind: These beings might sometimes use the "dream EM circuits" (dream levels) of the human mind so that the encounters are not easily remembered. Perhaps this is for the protection of the human, so as not to be viewed as crazy, or for hidden reasons known only to the energy beings.

Advanced Intelligence: I believe we are very wrong to assume light-beings who use plasma corridors are inherently demonic or negative. Instead, it seems logical that they have advanced far beyond what we can presently imagine and are highly intelligent. They have evolved past the need of a corporeal confirmation for their own existence; their consciousness is contained within their light-form. This is probably the evolutionary direction in which we are headed too.

However, when one really perceives this possibility, it does blow one's mind!

On top of that, as with the entire UFO phenomenon, we humans start with the finished product, so to speak: We see the UFO. Then we are off to scratch our heads, trying to begin at step one of HOW could this be? Who is in there? Where/when did it come from?

It's the same way with my own encounters. They happened. And I have spent the rest of my life researching, thinking, feeling – what happened. It has changed my life but I would not have it any other way.

The Mind Outside: We can call the morphic field, the Mind Outside (each individual mind having the "Mind Inside which connects to the Mind Outside); the Mind Outside "runs" on electric circuits just as our individual minds do.

Quantum entanglement of two minds would be an entanglement of two minds, causing those minds to "run" on the same circuitry and essentially be the same mind but in different environments. A feeling like this is reported by some humans who have encountered UFO occupants. Quantum entanglement causes morphic resonance between two minds, and it seems that light-beings would readily use such a process.

Of course, one could be entangled with a corporeal space man from a far distant planet or from the Year 2400 instead of a light-form zooming along on plasma corridors; in each case, the human of the 21st Century would absorb only what the human stage of development allowed her to absorb and learn. Perhaps that is the bottom line here: we humans must realize that we have far to go; we are not, as it turns out, the top of the cosmic evolutionary heap.

 

 Personal proof: Finally, when I gaze at these 2 photos I took in a Kilkenny, Ireland, in Spring of 1991 on a cheap camera which took 110 film, I have my own personal proof that light, plasma, and advanced intelligence is involved in the Unknown. I say "my own personal proof" because I know these two pictures (frame 1 with frame 2 following it immediately), are absolutely legitimate. I saw nothing with the naked eye and I don't think my cat Sakima did either. Are these photos UFO connected or paranormal related? Both?

The "kind" of light seems identical to the Army's laser plasma lightning cannon. This "kind" of light is somehow ABSOLUTE LIGHT. It must involve light traveling on plasma in order to create this kind of "density" of light. It is opaque light, if you will.

But is it simply a plasma phenomenon with no intelligence involved? This is where my proof of advanced intelligence comes into play; look at the form the plasma/light has taken! It is a form which I recognize in my reality, it has two chubby legs, two rounded little wings, and a round head.

A second later (second frame), it was zooming away in a near-saucer form. It must have been trying to communicate, using a form which was familiar to me or to my cat. No, it is not a teddy bear, it is not a butterfly, but the general shape and form is familiar to a human like a teddy bear or a butterfly. It is an alien intelligence trying to form an earth animal or an animal familiar to the perceiver!

I did not see anything visually but I seem to have focused my camera in both frames on the light-form. How could this be? I can only think that it did reach another level of my mind and so that level of me - did focus on the flying light-form.

This is my personal proof that:

This is a light/plasma phenomenon

It had advanced intelligence and knew about my mind (what would be meaningful to me)

It reached some level of my mind of which I was not consciously aware and that level focused my camera right on the light-form.
