Norwegian UFO mystery solved?

This is a typical story about a UFO mystery "being solved". Exactly how has it been solved? “According to the scientists, it is now clear that the phenomen is not UFO-related, but are luminous balls containing some form of energy.”However, he says much work remains before he is ready to give the final answer. I.e. it’s not solved. Link.

Mayan Shamanism and 2012: A Pyschedelic Cosmology

Leading 2012 writer and researcher John Major Jenkins puts it all in context. Amazing stuff!

The profound integration of celestial, psychological, ritual, and mythopoeic elements at Izapa bespeaks the psychedelic influence, because those tools of vision open the consciousness to higher states of awareness in which multiple dimensions are seen for what they are – mutually interweaving and interpenetrating aspects of a unity that is simply not apparent to the “normal” consciousness that functions on more limited planes of perception.

These processes and concepts are intimately involved in the understanding that the Milky Way is the Great Mother, and the dark rift is her vagina or birth place. It is the place of transformation that the prospective male king must enter in order to be reborn as the king, a divine being. That these things are templated upon the alignment of the December solstice sun with the dark rift in the Milky Way – on the 13-baktun cycle end date, December 21, 2012 – is mind-boggling.

60th anniversary of Roswell - was it real?

Interesting post on the Daily Grail looking at the evidence.

I was permitted from a safe distance to first observe the object just recovered north of town. It was approx. 12 to 15 feet in length, not quite as wide, about 6 feet high, and more of an egg shape. Lighting was poor, but its surface did appear metallic. No windows, portholes, wings, tail section, or landing gear were visible.

I personally feel something momentous did happen in Roswell, but that competing accounts, profiteers and government misinformation has garbled the account of what really happened, perhaps forever. Link.

Anniversary of the UFO

This big BBC article celebrating 60 years of the UFO phenomenon falls down when it trots out the usual, "official" explanations for UFOs. Here they are with my retorts:

Sundogs: Refracted image of the sun - WHICH DON’T MOVE
Space debris: Burning satellites or rocket fragments - WHICH MOVE IN A STRAIGHT LINE
Meteors: Such as bolides or fireballs - AGAIN, A STRAIGHT LINE
Clouds: Lenticular or disc-like - OKAY BUT *SLOW* MOVING
Mirages: Hot or cold-air induced images - HMMMMMMM
Stars/planets: Such as Venus - WHICH DON’T MOVE!!!
Planes: Such as experimental aircraft - POSSIBLY, BUT AERODYNAMICS
Ball lightning: Unpredictable brilliant spheres - USUALLY FOUND NEAR THE GROUND
Weather balloons: Classic explanation - OKAY, A LOT OF UFOs ARE PROBABLY BALLOONS
Hallucination: Viewer under stress - I SEE BETTER WHEN I’m TRIPPING!
Mass hysteria: Early explanation - COME ON!
Earthlights: Caused by electromagnetic fields in seismic activity areas - WTF DOES THAT MEAN?

This cool article in Wired too is a bit more open minded, although there's the usual skeptical perspective from writer Darius Lockwood
