The Supernatural Little People Explained?

The Supernatural Little People Explained? 92

 

For thousands of years, there have been legends of mysterious wee people that are much smaller than midgets and dwarfs. Unlike the typical deformities of dwarfs these tiny individuals have completely corresponding mass ratios and proper proportions to their bodies. No big heads, no large extremities; nor are their arms or legs too small. They reportedly resemble perfectly normal humans that are extremely small and of very low weight.

These “height challenged humaniods” varry in size from a few feet tall to as small as an inch or so. In many cases the tiniest have wings that quickly beat around their bodies, like hummingbirds enabling them the gift of flight. They can hover around the average sized human each carefully observing one another. Whether in the daytime or in the dark, they come around to visit us, and often  are attracted to a light source as a campfire.

Now, we shall study the possible scientific explanations. Since antiquity, people have taken powerful mind altering drugs that produce hallucinations both willing and unwillingly. Under the influence of such mendicaments, a distortion of the physical world can occur. The presence of  an insect or insects buzzing around or hovering silently near the person’s head may confuse brain receptors to blend images. A man under the influence may observe part of the insect say the wings flapping, but the body of the insect might emerge as human because there is another person standing nearby. Thus a possibility exists that butterflies, dragonflies, moths, mosquitoes, and other bugs can morph into tiny, winged, flying human creatures within the poisoned minds of men.

But, there are allegedly some of us who see super little, winged people without having used drugs. Individuals who are losing their eyesight; going blind can experience visual hallucinations in the form of Charles Bonnet Syndrome (CBS). This syndrome is named after Charles Bonnet, a Swiss doctor from the 1700’s whose grandfather, due to declining eyesight, experienced hallucinations of people, patterns, and vehicles. Bonnet proposed those hallucinations were produced by physical causes, not of a deranged mind. With CBS; extreme retinal malfunctions in the eyes and visual sense misinterpertations in the brain account for seeing the nonexistent. False images can include seeing landscapes, the inside of a tunnel, disembodied faces, musical notes, geometric shapes and especially people. On occasion patients claim to see very small faires dressed in antique or ancient clothing; who can be still or moving around but are always silent. Of special interest  – seeing humans, about the size of a finger, that are directing a super small horse-drawn carriage or driving super miniature vehicles have been documented. The hallucinations often wear brightly colored attire, and at times being part of a mass procession of a marching crowd, which moves across and out of view.

It is said CBS victims may experience these miniature people at close range that look mischievously or curiously back at the observer.  CBS is also known as Lilliputian Syndrome or as Lilliputian Visions. The term “Lilliputian” comes from the novel called “Gulliver’s Travels” written by the famous Irish writer, Reverend, and once a dean of Saint Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin, Ireland. Jonathan Swift (1667-1745) published in 1726 the tale of Lemuel Gulliver who, on a trip to two mythical islands, Lilliput and Blecuscu meets very tiny human beings.

Another scientific explanation for Lilliputian hallucinations comes from alcoholics with excessive consumption over a long period of time or suffer a big cutback in their drinking. When  heavy drinkers completely stop withdraw symptoms occur, which oddly enough increases the chance of hallucinations. Delirium tremens (often called the DTs) is a condition where the mental and neurological well-being of a person changes into a serious even deadly situation. In this state strange physiological things can happen.

In one medical case, a man who consumed an alarming amount of 50 units of alcohol per day suddenly decreased his intake and started seeing little people throughout his house. These tiny folks were about a foot high with funny, colorful clothes, strange faces, big eyes and large mouths. Some were wearing eyeglasses. These Lilliputians would follow him all around his home, and he would hear their footsteps.

In all the world;  the country which has the highest concentration of seeing “little people” is Ireland.  Ireland, also known as the Emerald Isle, is a small nation which unfortunately also has a very large issue with the consumption of alcoholic beverages. Of note, Ireland, itself, produces its own, very fine nationalist liquor called Irish whiskey. If alcohol or withdraw problems are truly part of “the wee people” sightings perhaps research may help explain the hallucination. Is it of no consequence “St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated with alcohol and often associated with leprechaun’s?

Other nations where people have largely claimed to see tiny folks include Great Britain, Wales, and Scotland. Notice that these countries, as well as Ireland, are all neighboring. Of course Great Britain is famous for British Malt liquor and the Scots have their own popular alcohol brew we know as Scotch. Consumption of alcohol has been quite high in these areas too compared with other countries around the globe, so may we suggest this could also increase the possibilities of hallucination?

The drink some commonly believed to hallucinate in seeing fairies and the wee folk is the traditional form of absinthe, a pale green liquor. The alcohol content is very high usually 70%+  and flavored with aniseed, fennel, wormwood (a plant) and occasionally sugar. Wormwood’s component thujone (absent from absinthe available in the USA, and certain other nations) can be harmful and tragic.

The Supernatural Little People Explained? 95Thujone can act as a hallucinogenic and its amount varies from brand to brand of traditional absinthe. Hence more the wormwood, the more potent the absinthe. Enough tasting of traditional absinthe and you poison yourself. Somewhat less and you hallucinate, or so they say. The old Absinthe is also called “the green fairy” or “the flaming green fairy”. A person on such spirits has been blamed for seeing bugs, demons, and fairies.

In conclusion, we have attempted to explain the existence of tiny beings that have been the source of legends and supernatural stories for centuries. While it is possible to rationalize in this case why one individual may see these creatures, does this particular answer work for every instance?

Science and logic often prevail and give us insight to the truth. Better and clearer understanding to all things is a goal of mankind. But the unknown and mysterious are always components cloaked in the unexplained.

For example Charles Bonnet Syndrome and alcohol withdraw tell us a lot about the inflicted person who believes he or she, sees someone or something that’s not really there. But what explains the mystery if I see little people and you do too?!

Was an Angel filmed over a house extinguished by firefighters?

Was an Angel filmed over a house extinguished by firefighters? 106

Having appeared on the network, this photo caused a lot of comments – from the fact that it really was a Guardian Angel who guarded the firefighters during work, to those who assured that all this was just an illusion, no more complicated than a cloud in the shape of a lamb.

At the end of December 2020, while extinguishing a fire in the Polish village of Maldyty, an Angel hovered over the firemen, or at least something like an Angel. This photo appeared on the Facebook page of the Maldyta fire station and generated many comments.

“This is something that was formed during the last extinguishing of the fire from the ignition of soot in the chimney in Maldyty. Write in the comments your thoughts about it,” was written under the picture on their FB page.

Poles are known to be very religious and there are plenty of people willing to comment on the picture.

Many indeed believed that the Angel oversaw the work of the firemen and, perhaps, even helped them to extinguish the fire. But there were also enough of those who believed that it was all just a random silhouette between clouds in the sky and pareidolia (illusion). The photo was taken by an unspecified person sitting in the cab of a car parked next to the burning house.

“Christians have always believed in the existence of guardian spirits. Some call them Guardian Angels. The Bible confirms their existence,” Pastor Leszek Kozheniecki told reporters, commenting on this photo.

By the way, Kozhenetskiy is a well-known Polish pastor who believes in the existence of supernatural beings.

Three years ago, he told the press that he had driven out the evil spirit that settled in his house in Turza Wielka. One of the firefighters who worked on the extinguishing of the house that night said:

“If we have this kind of protection watching over us, I am pretty calm about safety during work.”

Blogger MrMBB333 shared an image of a “mysterious creature.” It was discovered 80 kilometers off the coast of Antarctica in a remote region of Antarctica, according to the Sun.

According to the blogger, the pictures are screenshots from the Google Earth service, which were sent to him by his subscriber and conspiracy theorist under the nickname BONKERS.

They estimate the length of the remains at 3.6-6 meters.I don’t know if it was frozen for thousands of years or appeared recently,- the blogger said.

MrMBB333 believes the skeleton belonged to a dinosaur. He came to this conclusion by examining the front and hind limbs of the creature. His subscribers are sure that these are the remains of a seal.

A google search for seal skeleton images shows a pretty good match,- one of them wrote.

Other subscribers call the skeleton “suspicious”. They explain that “seals have no hind legs.” Another wrote that the remains belonged to an alligator or some other reptile.

In the comments, conspiracy theorists also expressed their opinion that “Antarctica is full of unexplained phenomena that may be related to ancient aliens.”

It is also believed that most of the “discoveries” made by users of Google Earth can be explained by the unusual shape of ice or other natural phenomena.

MrMBB333 uploaded his investigation video to YouTube on January 5. Since then, the video has been watched more than 200,000 times.

150 thousand years old Metal pipes in Tibet, contradict the official history

150 thousand years old Metal pipes in Tibet, contradict the official history 109

It is said that there is a mountain in Tibet that contains a network of special formations that extend to the nearest lake. Many researchers believe that this is an artificial pipeline system. But, strangely enough, its origin dates back to the era of the Neanderthals.

This mountain rises about 40 km from the city of Dalingha in the Tibetan Autonomous Region. It is called Baigongshan (White Mountain). In the world, it is better known for the wonderful formations that are in its heart and wide surroundings – they are called the Baigong pipes.

This miracle has been the subject of controversial discussions for many years. Some believe they are a natural formation, but there are many who are sure that someone built them in the distant past to drain the lake. They base their arguments on research results, but there is a catch; the mysterious aqueduct should have appeared 150 thousand years ago. Traces of settlements around the mountain are not even older than 30 thousand years. So who could build metal pipes inside an uninhabited mountain?

There are three caves at the foot of Mount Baigongshan, two of them have already collapsed and are inaccessible, but the largest of them has since been the target of many tourists who come to the area.

The cave looks like it was artificially created by someone. Visibility is enhanced by a massive pipe about forty centimeters in diameter that sticks out of the stone.

Another apparently hollow pipe of the same diameter ran into the cave from the top of the mountain. Another one came from the bottom of the cave somewhere below.

At the entrance to the cave, you can see several other pipes with a diameter of 10 to 40 cm. All this gives the impression of the remains of some ancient system or mechanism. About 80 meters from the cave, Lake Toson sparkles with a large number of scattered pipes on the beach.

They stretch from east to west and have a diameter of 2 to 4.5 cm, these archaeological finds are described by the Chinese scientist Liu-Shaolin:

The unmistakable rust color indicates that they are made of metal. And their craftsmanship showcases advanced attachment techniques. Who could have built such a complex pipe system? Only one who knew well what he was doing and why.

The version that such an engineering miracle was created by the Chinese disappears immediately. The inhabitants of the Middle Kingdom could not build something like that 150 thousand years ago. As the authors of many amazing inventions, bureaucracy became one of them. Therefore, it is simply impossible to imagine that such a large-scale and, without exaggeration, a great construction project was reflected in any ancient Chinese source. Any emperor, during whose reign this happened, would make sure that his great deed was not forgotten by descendants.

Baigong tubes are another unsolved mystery in human history. This find once again refutes the facts of the official history. Where is the true and where is the misconception? Maybe there will be people among the readers who will logically explain the origin of the ancient aqueduct.
