A Messenger of Catastrophe?

A Messenger of Catastrophe? 92

A number of sightings depicting  a man-sized humaniod, with glowing red eyes and 10-foot wingspan has been associated with catastrophic events of the past 50 years including some of today’s modern disasters.The first documented sighting  of the Mothman was on November 12, 1966. An unidentified creature was spotted by five grave diggers in Clendenin West Virginia. It was decribed as a large feathered beast with immense wings that flew above the treetops.  A few days later two young couples from Point Pleasant WVA reported a winged humanoid flew after their car near the site of an old WW II ammunition plant. They reported red shining eyes when the car headlights spotted the monster. Other sightings continued in the area. Within months the first disaster occurred near the sightings. In time, a progression of the sighting of the Mothman in various parts of the world appeared to be linked with appalling disasters that would soon happen closeby.

Mothman Sightings Leading to Tragedies

The collapse of Silver Bridge that connects Point Pleasant, WVA to Ohio was the first recorded tragedy after the alleged sightings of Mothman.  The 700-foot structure collapsed on the evening of December 15, 1967, at around 5:00 pm. Many people were traveling on it when the calamity happened. According to the reports, the fall killed 46 people. Vehicles were tossed into the Ohio River, and some of the wreckage is still missing.

This picture claiming to be the Mothman is really just a piece of metal tilted and ready to fall, or is it?

Another tragic event that was linked to the Mothman was amid the 1920s. Although the incident occurred before the escalated controversy of the Mothman in the 1960s,  many believed that the “man dragon” sighted in the Xiaon Te Dam on January 1926 was similar to the creature seen in Point Pleasant.

When the dam burst, it killed 15,000 people living in the nearby villages.  Forty billion gallons of water ferociously destroyed everything in its way. Before the disaster, the villagers reported seeing a sinister figure flying above the dam.

In another part of the world, the Mothman continued to inflict tragedy. One of the worst nuclear misfortunes in history, the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant failure in Ukraine has been associated with Mothman sightings. Before the horrific explosion took place in April 1986, a scientist and workers saw a bird-like creature similar to a man’s appearance gliding in the air near the plant. The enormous black bird observed purportedly had red eyes with beastly features.  The same monster was seen flying in the nearby town of Pripyat, which was also affected by strong levels of radiation after the nuclear blast.

Recent Catastrophe Links to Mothman Sightings

Mothman sightings continued into recent times. It was during the 911 attack in September 2001 that a mysterious black-winged creature was seen hovering around the Twin Towers. The particular observation happened just before the tragic air collisions of the twin towers. Some say later the beast was flying parallel to the doomed airliner before the second plane hit the tower.

The Mothman was also observed one month before the collapse of Interstate 35 Bridge in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  The incident occurred on August 1, 2007.  Thirteen people were killed, and more than 145 were injured.

The most recent catastrophic event linked to Mothman sightings are of the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant disaster in March 2011.  A 7-magnitude earthquake triggered the explosion and sent tremors to  the entire region, killing hundreds of people.

A well published story claims an American Mr. Marcus Pules on a visit to Japan witnessed the Mothman circling the plant, along with his friend, who also saw the mysterious creature sitting on top of the nearby building. After a few minutes, the ominous beast suddenly disappeared.

After returning to the US, Pules learned of a CNN news report that Japan had suffered a devastating earthquake, resulting in Fukushima disaster. After hearing about the dangerous radiation leaks, he remembered his encounter with the black-flying creature at the now devastated nuclear power plant.

The worldwide Mothman sightings are unexplainable by science. If it does exist what is the Mothman’s relation to such Catastrophes?  We can’t really tell, as of now, but at least the most recent sightings haven’t been yet linked to a tragedy. Let us hope that Mothman won’t show up anytime soon near your doorstep.

Spirited Away Nation: Magic in Indonesia is everywhere

Spirited Away Nation: Magic in Indonesia is everywhere 108

Indonesia is not one of those countries that fascinates at first sight. Too much poverty and disorder. One Indonesian pantun, an edifying quatrain, says: just as a worm from a stream falls into a river, so love sinks into the heart from the eyes, that is, it depends on external attractiveness. However, appearance, surface, visibility are not a priority for the Indonesians. You need to feel this country with your heart.

Perhaps this is the influence of difficult climatic conditions: it is rather difficult to think in a permanent sauna. American government structures even impose restrictions on access to posts of a certain level for persons who have spent more than three years in tropical Asia. It is believed that cognitive abilities undergo irreversible changes in such conditions.

The principles of formal logic cease to operate in this corner of the planet, which is literally between the worlds: underwater – a constantly approaching ocean, air – in the form of hurricanes, and fiery – a chain of active volcanoes encircles the country in a ring.

During the eruption of Mount Agung in Bali in 2017, Indonesians were looking for an explanation for what happened not in the information of geological exploration and the history of climate observations. They thought the eruption was caused by the spiritual fall of the Balinese. 

“Why is this happening now? It depends on the sincerity of the Indonesian people. Balinese people need to reconsider their spiritual aspirations and mentality, “- quoted the local socio-political publication of the Governor of Bali, Mangku Pastika.

Yet the atmosphere in Indonesia is so dense that it seems more real than real objects. Noises, sounds, colors – everything is refracted in this thickened air. Without exception, all Indonesians with whom I am familiar have personal experience of meeting, communicating and other contacts with various spirits and ghosts, according to beliefs, inhabiting these islands. 

Talking about ghosts is not shameful; this is a completely understandable and socially accepted explanation of events. The concentration of events, which is not easy to explain by the laws of physics, is for some reason really increased here.

There is a big list of spirits inhabiting Indonesia. The most famous of these is, of course, Kuntilanak, the ghost of a pregnant woman. It can be detected by the smell of plumeria – flowers common in Indonesia that resemble jasmine, but with denser petals of a noble white and delicate yellow. 

These flowers grow there like weeds everywhere. They line the roads, bloom on the trees planted around the beaches, garlands of these flowers are worn around the necks of the newlyweds. In general, almost everything and always smells there with plumeria, which means that the demon is always nearby.

Kuntilanak appears as a beautiful dark-haired woman with red eyes. In addition, a spirit can be identified by a hole in the neck, a hole in the back, and bleeding. She marks her presence with a high-pitched female laugh. It is believed that she is attracted by the smell of drying clothes, which is why many Indonesians and Malaysians are afraid to leave their clothes outside. 

The spirit is especially cruel to men, one of whom, apparently, became the cause of the posthumous wanderings of a ghostly woman. The ghost kills the victim with nails, eats the intestines, and sucks the eyes directly from the sockets.

Sometimes Kuntilanak is identified with another spirit – Sundel Bolong, personifying a woman of easy virtue. Like Kuntilanak, Sundel Bolong died carrying a child conceived out of wedlock. For this reason, the spirit takes revenge on men and steals babies to replace their unborn baby. However, sometimes both infernal entities can harm young women out of envy. In this case, they turn into a bird, cause the woman to bleed and drink her blood.

Besides Kuntilanak, Indonesia is believed to be inhabited by countless other demons. One of the first texts in my Indonesian textbook was a clipping from the local press in the 1960s, which reported how an entire class in a small rural school turned into a “kerasukan”, that is, the children were possessed by spirits and robbed of their will. In addition to Kuntilanak, who deprives people of their will, does all sorts of horrors with them and is loved for this by the authors of numerous Indonesian horror films, many local ghosts do not harm a person.

A nation that massively believes in ghosts lives in a special atmosphere on the verge of dream and reality. In addition, sometimes it is not so important what really exists, how important is what your interlocutors and partners believe in, especially if there are many of them: collective beliefs and the irrational behavior dictated by them is the social reality in which you have to live.

People of the shadow: what do the mysterious shadow creatures want from us

People of the shadow: what do the mysterious shadow creatures want from us 109

Shadow creatures are neither ghosts nor people, and we know these creatures as shadow people. It seems that the “shadow” know about our location and want us to feel fear or even panic in their presence.

People-shadows or shadow people are paranormal dark barely visible silhouettes known to mystics for a long time. They look like dark humanoid creatures or barely noticeable ghosts, often seen only with peripheral vision. Witnesses claim that shadow people only catch a few seconds, eyewitnesses also say that they looked into the eyes of shadow people and their eyes shone with a red light, like demons.

Shadow people can take different shapes and sizes: look like full-fledged people or even like animals. But most often these are thin tall strange figures. Be that as it may, they appear only for a moment, quickly evaporating into the air. Unfortunately, they can harm humans, which was proven in 2013.

The video posted on the web had confirmation of the existence of a shadow man who was visible for over a minute! An unknown silhouette knocks down a man walking down the corridor and drags him across the floor for several seconds. After some time, it also suddenly disappears, releasing the person. As it became known, the building where the striking phenomenon was filmed has complaints from tenants who more than once meet paranormal events in their home.

There are very few known cases though of adverse events caused by shadow people. In most cases, they appear or disappear as soon as they are found.

Shadow creatures can be spotted out of the corner of your eye. Some people who saw them or knew about their presence say that they are alien creatures, slipping in and out of our field of vision. In the eyewitness accounts, the observation of the recurrence of shadow manifestations is especially often mentioned.

Whether they are an elusive race that has always coexisted with us is an interesting theory suggesting that these creatures are frequent guests in our lives.

Paranormal researchers consider shadow people to be malevolent supernatural entities. Perhaps shadow people will not cause physical pain, but they can affect you emotionally, for example, cause fear – this gives them energy.

Skeptics and scientists believe that shadow people are optical illusions or hallucinations that appear under the influence of drugs or physiological changes in the body. When the left temporo-parietal brain is stimulated, these strange images are created.

Often the appearance of these shadows is inextricably linked with sleep paralysis, when a person is, as it were, between sleep and reality. Scientifically, this is called hypnogogy. Hypnogogia is called “the phenomenon of the face in the dark” for such hallucinations.

All eyewitnesses, regardless of where they live, talk about the same sensations in the presence of shadow creatures. Fear is a cold feeling that overcomes a person at this moment.

Some people say they even saw the eerie red eyes of these dark personalities that momentarily appear anywhere and demonstrate the ability to walk on the walls of enclosed spaces, which defies the general laws of physics.

Whoever they are, they feed on human energy, emit bad vibrations and give negative emotions. We do not know how they got into our dimension, about the purpose of their mission and how they affect the human essence. The main thing is to stop feeling fear in their presence and not to “feed” anyone with your precious energy.

Ghost hunter told how to summon spirits

Ghost hunter told how to summon spirits 110

A ghost hunter explained how to summon ghosts and when is the best time to do it according to The Daily Star.

Jade Capasso explores hotels, inns, historical places to allegedly reveal the spirits and ghosts that are present in them. She shares her discoveries on the YouTube channel Ghost Club Paranormal. The girl is sure that you can also talk with spirits.

The 28-year-old ghost hunter is confident that you can talk to ghosts and spirits using a voice recorder. A particularly good time for this, according to her, is the eve of All Saints’ Day – Halloween.

 “I think there is more activity during Halloween. More people believe in the other world, ”she said.

She recalled that Halloween pumpkin is an invariable attribute and symbol of the holiday. People decorate their home with funny, scary, and sometimes even terrifying faces.

 “I’m sure there will be more sessions and many will use Ouija boards,” she says.

To connect with the “other world”, you can go to a famous haunted place, says Kapassa. She also recommends checking your home for ghosts.

To hear a ghost, the girl recommends using special equipment. 

After all, ghosts, she said, emit sounds at ultra-low frequencies that are not perceived by the human ear. You can hear them, as she notes, only on audio recordings.

The girl says that you need to leave the digital voice recorder in a room where paranormal activity is observed all night, or ask questions and wait for an answer.

“Ask questions, and who knows, you might hear a disembodied voice answering you,” says Jade.

According to her, there is no need to rush, because the spirits must be given enough time to respond.

“You probably won’t hear them in real time. But if you listen to the recording, you might hear someone from the underworld, ”she said.
