The Murky Waters

Encounters with the paranormal are likened to a mirage of appalling nightmares that often whets a subliminal fear and sense of inquisitiveness. The out-of-body experiences relay much on the supernatural frontier as this controversial topic forays into yet another mystifying journey, springing forth an intricate tapestry of both myth and unexplained occurrences. The following tales comes from the Sultanate of Brunei:

Much has been whispered about the strange conundrums surrounding a local beach and although the scenic beauty bears no glaring flaw, visitors have been urged to exert caution when taking a dip in the otherwise tranquil waters.
In this story, a family from Berakas recalls the events of their supposed ‘barbeque outing’, which turned out to be a bizarre ordeal.
As the family of four embarked on their journey, the ’sleepy’ sun peeked over the horizon, radiating the first strokes of light at the crack of dawn. The deserted roads and empty shops are a common sight on Sundays with the exception of a few early risers opening their ‘kopitiams’ for business and an occasional jogger or two hitting the extra miles along the roadside. They whizzed pass several buildings and a residential area before reaching a familiar road. A pleasant signboard greeted their very arrival and before them, the oceanfront glittered like diamonds against the golden rays of the glowing sphere in the sky as the mighty waves crashed against the shore, its cool morning breeze emitting a soothing sensation, as if washing away all the sorrows of yesterday.
They managed to secure a hut near the playground and began setting up the grill for their barbeque. “Sarah wants to play on the swing dad,” Anwar said and before he could even utter a ‘yes’, the two siblings ran across the field and began playing with the recreational facilities. Their father, Hakim, simply smiled at the children’s eagerness for it has been a while since they spent a family day together amid the hustle and bustle of daily life. After a hearty breakfast, Hakim decided to go for a swim while his wife watched over the kids.
The alluring sea had already beckoned its visitors to enjoy a host of nature’s fine offerings as beachgoers could be seen playing volleyball, while others engaged in various fun-filled activities. A former swimmer during his youth, Hakim attempted to test the vigor of his once-perfectly honed skills but laughed off the foolish endeavour after fatigue overwhelmed his entire body. Suddenly becoming conscious of his whereabouts, Hakim noticed that he had swum beyond his reach. “I didn’t expect to swim that far off to sea and was shocked as to how I reached that point,” the aspiring manager said.
Out of the blues, a piece of log floated in his direction but he simply dismissed it as nothing unusual. As he attempted to swim for the shoreline, a giant wave appeared from nowhere and struck Hakim hard causing him to spiral down beneath the surface as he struggled to fight the torrential currents that pulled him deeper and deeper into the menacing waters.
“I tried with all my might to rise to the surface but it felt like a thousand strong hands were pulling me from below,” he said. The sturdy force of the tide dragged him like a rag-doll as it glided across the sea, refusing to release the father-of-two from its grasp. As he entered into a state of unconsciousness, the melodic laughter and angelic faces of his children flashed before his eyes. “I longed to see my kids again and vowed that nothing would take me away from them,” Hakim said with sheer pride. With that, he expended a new burst of energy to swim ashore and ascended to the surface, gasping for air as he did and made his journey back.
However, his sudden willpower was short-lived as the relentless torrents refused to surrender its claims and once again, hauled him into the dark, gloomy waters. In that instant, a brawny pair of hands pulled Hakim back to the surface as he constantly slipped in and out of consciousness. The phenomenal episodes promptly summoned him back to reality as he stared at his valiant savior and although grateful, Hakim gravely feared for his safety. “We need to swim back. It’s not safe here,” Hakim murmured as they buoyed on the baleful territory like two helpless souls. His sudden rush of adrenaline rekindled a renewed strength as he repudiated the idea of placing the youth’s safety in jeopardy but regardless of their attempts to make it to shore; they seemed glued in position as it took forever to reach their destination. “Mister, what’s going on?” the terrified youth questioned as an evident fear loomed in his eyes.
Hakim began reciting verses from the al-Quran along with prayers to guide them back to safety. Together, they vigorously swam until they reached the soft layers of sand and collapsed on the shore. The beach was gripped with pandemonium as curious onlookers rushed to their aid. Hakim’s wife and children smothered him with kisses, grateful for his safe return. He turned towards his side and thanked his heroic rescuer for such a courageous act.
Days passed when his wife approached him to relay her side of the tale. The uncanny state of affairs ensued after his bizarre disappearance on that fateful day. Seeing as though something was amiss, she sought help from fellow beachgoers and some were kind enough to render their assistance. After searching the grounds for more than five hours, a young man caught sight of Hakim struggling in the waters and when he made the rescue attempt, both of them mysteriously disappeared from sight. They only re-appeared after reaching safely ashore.
After concluding her version of the story, Hakim removed the retention bandages on his legs to reveal a hundred handprint marks and scratch spots embossed in the deep layers of his skin. “My wife was bewildered by the strange marks on my legs and it bears a painful reminder of my near-death experience. This has broadened our concepts in every aspect of life. Thankfully it was I who ventured into the waters and not my kids. To learn that I was missing for a good five hours surprised me as it only seemed like a few minutes,” Hakim said. He also advised beachgoers to keep a watchful eye over their children when swimming in beaches and ensure their constant safety at all times.
Whether this incident was the work of paranormal entities or not, it isn’t meant to misconstrue or tarnish the charms and tranquility of our serene beaches but more rather to unleash a sense of awareness amongst fellow readers that an impending danger can lurk anywhere and thus, exerting vigilance is certainly vital especially when it concerns young children.
Throughout the years, tragic deaths or near-accidents occurring at beaches, rivers or even pools involving drowning victims have made headlines in local newspapers. The public has voiced deep concerns on the need to set up watchtowers and install lifeguards to ensure the safety of both children and adults alike at the beach or swimming centres.

Self Proclaimed ‘Time-traveller’ claiming to be from 2030 PASSED lie detector test –

A ‘time-traveller’ who says he is from the future has passed a lie detector test after claiming Donald Trump will be re-elected and Artificial Intelligence will take over.

In a startling YouTube video posted by Apex TV the man, whose face and voice have been distorted to hide his identity, claims he has risked his life to travel back in time.

Apex TV says it is ‘one of the biggest voices of paranormal content on YouTube’, with over 56 million views and 100,000 subscribers.

His mission, he says, is to tell those alive now what the world has in store.

Among his predictions is the claim that Google Glass-style robotics will spread across the globe.

Technology will also have developed to the point where it will be able to independently run a home.

Bitcoin will be increasingly popular but pennies and cents will still be in use.

In 2030 he says the US president is a mysterious figure called Ilana Remikee.

He also suggests global warming has caused temperatures in North America to increase while Europe has cooled.

Humans will reach Mars in 2028 and, the same year, time travel will be discovered.

He states that electric cars will be able to travel as fast as diesel and petrol ones (despite many already being able to do so) and many forms of cancer have been cured.

In a previous interview with Paranormal Elite, Noah said he had anorexia and is in fact 50-years-old, but that he had taken an age rejuvenation drug which had transformed him into a 25-year-old.

Of course, his claims have attracted scepticism. In response, he agreed to take a lie detector test on camera.

In the footage from ApexTV the would-be oracle is seen sitting on a chair with what appears to be a polygraph lie detector wrapped around his bicep.

He is asked to predict some of the future’s major events – and confirm he really is who he says he is.

The interview begins and Noah is asked a simple question: ‘Are you an actual time traveller from the year 2030?’

He responds with a yes and ‘TRUE’ appears in large green letters superimposed on the video. However, the results on the machine are not shown.

Noah then claims he has ‘hard evidence’ to back up his predictions but isn’t sure that he can say what that it because it might cause a paradox.

Once again, the word ‘TRUE’ appears on screen again.

The Top 5 Scariest Places in the Philippines

Discover the top 5 scariest places in the Philippines and learn the truth about them. If you’re looking for spine-chilling places to explore while staying in the Philippines for vacation, then let me walk you through the top 5 scariest places in the Pearl of the Orient Seas.

Haunted places like streets, buildings, and houses usually have a rich history of bloody past. Most of the paranormal activities that are happening in these places came from morbid and tragic events in the old times. Some scary stories take root in legends and mythical characters that people talked about for many years.

In the Philippines, where history and culture mostly developed because of its rich antiquities during the war era and invasion period, many haunted places now were remnants of the past. While other spooky places were brought by tragic events from unfortunate accidents.

In this article, let me take you to the scariest places in the Philippines that will surely raise your curiosity if you’re into ghostly and eerie adventures. Check them out below.

List of Top 5 Scariest Places in the Philippines

Balete Drive

First on our list of top 5 scariest places in the Philippines is one of the most famous ghost area in Manila, the Balete Drive. Located in New Manila, Balete drive is said to be haunted by a white lady (a popular ghost in the Philippines, which means a female soul or spirit dressed in white. According to commuters and drivers specifically taxi drivers, at around 12 midnight and 3 am, a bloody white lady shows up to either ask for help or look for her murderer.

Back in the past, it was said that a female student was raped and murdered in Balete Drive. During those days, Balete trees surrounded Balete Drive. This is the main reason the street was called Balete Drive. The alleged murderer was said to be a taxi driver and according to the reports, that woman was buried under a Balete tree. In addition, according to folklore, Balete is housed with mysterious creatures and this contributes to the already haunted street of Balete Drive.

Clark Airbase Hospital

Hospitals are the common lounge of spirits and abandoned hospitals are even worse. In Angeles City, Pampanga, an abandoned hospital was featured in the horror documentary; “I wouldn’t Go in There” of National Geographic back in 2013 and this was the Clark Airbase Hospital. In the past, it was a refuge site to soldiers during World War II and the Vietnam War.

According to the Ghost Hunters International group, Clark Airbase Hospital was one of the most haunted places in the world because the spirits who are residing here are reported as violent and rude to visitors. Based on some personal accounts of explorers and paranormal investigators, spirits and the unknown threw rocks and other objects to them when they visited the place. Paranormal activities like screams, howls, and apparitions are also common in this hospital.

Pindangan Ruins

Third on our list of top 5 scariest places in the Philippines is the Pindangan ruins, in San Juan City, La Union. This place is the remnant of an old church that was built in 1786. In the past, it was a place for unity between two villages (San Vicente de Balanac Village and Guillermo de Dalagdang Village) under the protection of Father Jose Torres. Now, the place is full of spirits and the most popular spirit was said to be the headless stabbed priest who was allegedly seen searching and calling for his lost head.

Moreover, this place is also haunted by spirits that are called “Pasatsat” which comes from the word “satsat” that means, “to stab.” They were the people who died in World War II when coffin and graveyards were too expensive so people wrapped their dead in reed mats. According to locals, these spirits will haunt you and in order to stop them, you have to stab open their makeshift caskets and cut it in half.

Ozone Disco

One of the terrifying fire accidents in the Philippines took place in Ozone Disco in Quezon City. On March 18, 1996, a massive fire engulfed the small nightclub. The disco was approved for occupancy of only 35 people, but during that time, around 350 patrons and 40 club employees were said to be enjoying the night in the Ozone disco. Based on the accounts of the surviving victims, light sparked flying inside the disc’s jockey booth and shortly after that smoke followed and people thought it was just a party plan. To their horror, the electrical system shut down and flame erupted.

According to the court, 162 people died in the Ozone disco and most victims were graduating students from Universities. These days the disco is already an abandoned place but many ghostly sightings were reported within the area especially at night. Some locals said that they could hear music and see disco lights. Others claimed seeing silhouettes of dancing people and hearing screams and moaning. Moreover, families of the victims were occasionally seen in the place with spirit mediums to contact their dead loved ones. In one occasion, a spirit of a boy named “Ed” was contacted and according to the reports, he wanted to say goodbye to his family.

Diplomat Hotel

In the popular city of Pines, Baguio, there is this haunted place called the Diplomat Hotel or also known as Dominican Hill Retreat House. This structure was built in 1911 for the American Friars of the Dominican Order. It was originally constructed as a retreat house for relaxation, a monastery, and a school all-in-one. In the height of the World War II, the Japanese attacked the hotel and many people were ruthlessly killed. This includes ordinary children, priests, nuns, families and even babies.

The Diplomat Hotels, Inc., revived the place in 1973 and according to the staff of the hotel; the place is indeed haunted and scary. Years later, the owner died and the hotel stopped operating.

Many ghost sightings have been reported in the area. Some claimed that headless priests and nuns, who were victims of the World War II, haunt the Diplomat Hotel. Others heard moaning and crying of babies at night. Moreover, paranormal activities like the banging of doors, screaming people in pain and ghostly apparitions were said to occur in this haunted hotel.

If you’re brave enough to visit these places, then I suggest you don’t go alone. You may encounter bad spirits or ghosts that can harm you. Alternatively, If you’re scared and couldn’t imagine yourself traveling these scariest places, then I suggest you focus on exploring the wonders of the Philippines.

How Scientists Found “Paranormal Perception” Channels Within Human Beings

In 1976, a presentation was given at the Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers (IEEE) on a paper published by the Institute on behalf of Hal Puthoff (now part of the To The Stars initiative that received and released the recent UFO Pentagon footage) and Russell Targ.

The paper was titled “A Perceptual Channel For Information Transfer Over Kilometer Distances: Historical Perspectives and Recent Research.”

Puthoff, who held a PhD in electrical engineering from Stanford, at the time was commissioned by the CIA/DIA and Stanford Research Institute to direct the Stargate project, which was one of many secret government programs that remained hidden from public knowledge for more than 20 years.

Russell Targ is a physicist and author, originally known for his work pioneering the development of the laser and laser applications, and a co-founder of the Stanford Research Institute’s (SRI) investigation of psychic abilities in the 1970s and 1980s.

The Stargate Project examined human psychic abilities; today it’s known as the study of parapsychology.

The paper was the first and only publication of this program before it became classified in the late 70s, and it presented scientific evidence for the existence of a perceptual capacity channel whereby certain individuals are able to perceive and describe remote data not perceivable to any known sense.

In fact, by 1975 the funding clients had agreed that this subtle perception channel existed in both experienced and inexperienced individuals. (source, a lecture from Ingo Swann, one of 500 highly skilled participants within the program).

In the program, participants were able to successfully identify buildings, roads, and laboratory apparatus, but more than two decades later, parts of the program were declassified and we found out that it was much more than just that.

This is outlined in a statement made by Puthoff from a paper published after the declassification in 1995:

“To summarize, over the years, the back-and-forth criticism of protocols, refinement of methods, and successful replication of this type of remote viewing in independent laboratories has yielded considerable scientific evidence for the reality of the [remote viewing] phenomenon. Adding to the strength of these results was the discovery that a growing number of individuals could be found to demonstrate high-quality remote viewing, often to their own surprise. . . . The development of this capability at SRI has evolved to the point where visiting CIA personnel with no previous exposure to such concepts have performed well under controlled laboratory conditions.” (source)(source)

Participants in the program were able to remote view objects in other rooms, to buildings, and places all over the world.

For example, a Soviet Tu-22 bomber, one that was outfitted as a reconnaissance aircraft and lost in Zaire in 1979, was located by an Air Force remote viewer. President Jimmy Carter was aware of this, admitting to national press that the CIA, without his knowledge, once consulted a psychic to locate a missing government plane. According to CNN, he told students at Emory University that the “special U.S. plane” crashed somewhere in Zaire. The only thing is that it was a Russian, not American plan.

According to Carter, “the woman went into a trance and gave some latitude and longitude figures. We focused our satellite cameras on that point and the plane was there.”  (source)

According to Paul H. Smith, PhD, and one of the participants in the Stargate project (now a retired U.S. army major), gives us more detail from his book that is sourced below:

In March 1979, a young Air Force enlisted woman named Rosemary Smith was handed a map of the entire continent of Africa. She was told only that sometime in the past few days a Soviet Tu-22 bomber outfitted as a spy plane had crashed somewhere in the continent.  The United States desperately wanted to recover the top secret Russian codes and equipment the Tu-22 carried. Using their remote viewing skills, she pinpointed the wreckage, even though it had been completely swallowed by the jungle canopy into which the jet had plunged nose first. (source, pg. 31)

Another example would be the rings around Jupiter. Prior to the flyby of Jupiter by Pioneer 10, a spacecraft launched in 1972 and the first to fly directly through the asteroid belt and make observations of Jupiter, a gentleman by the name of Ingo Swann was able to successfully describe and view a ring around Jupiter, which scientists had no idea even existed. This took place precisely before NASA’s Pioneer 10 spacecraft flyby, which confirmed that the ring did actually exist. These results were published and they are linked earlier in this article.

“To determine whether it was necessary to have a ‘beacon’ individual at the target site, Swann suggested carrying out an experiment to remote view the planet Jupiter before the upcoming NASA Pioneer 10 flyby. In that case, much to his chagrin (and ours) he found a ring around Jupiter, and wondered if perhaps he had remote viewed Saturn by mistake. Our colleagues in astronomy were quite unimpressed as well, until the flyby revealed that an unanticipated ring did in fact exist.” (source)

Pretty fascinating, isn’t it? Swann went on to write about the Moon, and other strange factors that are associated with space that we have yet to become aware of.  You can access those books here.

The shutdown of the program was fishy. According to Ingo, human telepathy came into play and that’s when the men in suits walked in and shut the program down.

Below is one of many talks given by Russell Targ talking about the program more.
