    For me, without a doubt, it's Roswell. If this one truth came to be believed by humanity, dominoes would start to fall & it would change everything, most certainly for the better.

    The Mandela Effect — which I'm convinced is something highly strange that in some cases was quite real.

    I am intrigued by the multitude of dogman sightings/encounters that have occurred throughout the United States and in other countries such as Australia. I classify this as a conspiracy because the dogmen are known about by the military and branches of the intelligence apparatus.
    It is clear that the dogmen know no fear. Some intriguing aspects I shall list below.

    1. In some encounters with dogmen the human has actually heard them speak a few words in a low growl, denoting intelligence and the will to learn.
    2. They have been spotted many times in places of former human habitation, such as abandoned houses, cellars, caravans and barns.
    3. I have come across one encounter where the dogman was wearing clothes, namely a hoodie.
    4. Dogmen are supremely strong, muscular and durable. There are a number of cases where the dogmen take a number of bullets from a high caliber rifle and they don't even flinch. Another case reports that it took something like 27 shots to fell a dogman.
    5. A number of accounts tell of a telepathic link between the dogman and a human. In one case a man was considering rushing at a dogman with a machete and a strong voice in his head strongly warned him not to, with the understanding that if he did, it would not end well for him.
    6. Dogmen are very fast. Many accounts tell of dogmen running after and keeping pace with cars up to around 65 miles per hour.
    7. There are accounts of dogmen attempting to build relations with humans. In one case, a person who had recently moved into a home found that the dogman had left him the hock of a deer on his front doorstep, and he openly asked a forum what he should do in that situation.
    8. There is a famous account of a pack of dogmen laying siege to a house over a number of nights. On the final night they were digging under the house, taking apart the bricks, trying to get in through the roof, and charging the house to the point where a break was appearing in the wall.
    9. There are accounts of dogmen encountering and fighting with each other, and others of them fighting with bigfoot and with grizzlies.
    10. There are reports of dogmen being used in secret programs, bred and weaponised.
    11. Many people that lock eyes with a dogman simply become frozen with fear, and on many occasions say they were looking into the eyes of evil.

    The sheer number of encounters of significantly similar creatures implies that there is a large and growing breeding population within the United States and beyond. Scary stuff indeed!

    Roswell and anything to do with (grey) aliens, abductions, contactees, etc., Steven Greer's (and others) or disclosure work. Discerning the chaff from the wheat (e.g. Corey Goode cult).

    Currently also (like most of us) certainly the Corona/Lockdown/Vaccination thematic complex although I wish I would not think about this anymore and it would just go away, it starts to hurt a lot. I feel some zombiefication around me because I seem to be the only one 'awake' about this in my surroundings and only find like-minded people on the internet it seems.

    Also I used to do read/watch a lot about the drone wars and all matters concerning the military-industrial complex and their wars.

    And then I love the mysteries of the ancient civilisations and (so-called) 'alternative history' regarding all the archeological remains we have and cannot really explain.

    Oh so many to choose from but I'll go for the great mystery that are the Nazca lines. They captivated me when I visited them in 2004 and I've been fascinated ever since. One of the great mysteries of the planet and they'll probably remain a mystery to us.

    Free energy, or better, alternate energy exploiting the zero point field. It would allow mankind to move forward with hope into the future.
    It would also unlock the new science, including a real health revolution!

    When I first saw the OP my thoughts were it would receive a flood of replies, rightly so. There are many things that mystify and intrigue all of us.

    Kudos if you had no hesitation nailing it down to one.



    I'll look forward to reading them as they come in.

    The Mandela effect.

    ESP - telepathy, telekinesis, distance healing etc.

    Suppressed technologies.

    ET contact.

    And as of a couple of weeks ago, the unfolding Greg Hallett story ( which the more I learn about, the more astonished I become).

    "the day after roswell" was a fascinating read. The thought of time travelling humans coming back to avert a future event was also intriguing and been spoken about by a few people on the seminar/speaking circuit. The Phil Schneider talks were also intriguing too

    overtoun bridge in Scotland is one intriguing one.
    For the simple reason of the number of dogs that have thrown themselves off it. (and other spooky occurences.)

    I do seem to recall a fascinating story about a badly burned/charred bigfoot/sasquatch getting rescued by firemen, a vet and a doctor in the woods and really opened my mind up to the actuality of the whole subject of bigfoot

    This was the reported incident at the 1980 Mount St. Helens eruption, a fascinating story.

    Allegedly, four National Guardsmen helped a group of badly burned Sasquatch by giving medical aid and also stood guard over a tarp-covered pile of the dead. It was also reported that a Army Chinook helicopter was seen leaving the area with three Sasquatch in an underslung cargo net.

    I never heard about the Chinook story; I believe what scotslad was referring to was the big forest fire on Battle Mountain, in Nevada, in 1999. See this long and fascinating post.

    Here's how it starts, and there's more. I consider it one of the most important Bigfoot accounts ever reported.
    Bigfoot Recovered : injured in Forest Fire

    http://bigfootevidence.blogspot.com/2011/07/bigfoot-injured-by-forest-fire-was.html:

    On August 6, 1999, Battle Mountain, Nevada, exploded into several simultaneous range fires in what would be known as the Battle Mountain Complex Fire. A Bigfoot was hurt in the fire according to an anonymous government employee, who alerted the Bigfoot Field Research Organization (BFRO). The story was later dismissed but acclaimed author and science teacher Thom Powell believe it really happened and that the whole story was an elaborate cover-up.

    In a letter to BFRO dated "7 August 1999, Battle Mountain, Nevada" the anonymous government employee, states:

    "I observed an animal wounded by fire moving on all fours not like a bear. More like ape. Fire fighters captured animal, contacted local vet and medical doctor. U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife, Department of Interior, and Bureau of Land Management on the scene.

    Animal tranquilized and moved to unknown location. Those at scene told not to talk about what they saw.

    Animal approximately 7.5 feet long/tall, human like arms and legs, face not like man or ape but mixed between. Genitalia: male, uncircumcised and human-like. Hair covering most of body except chest, chest has hair but sparse, hands with sparse hair, palms bare, with five digits with human opposition of thumb and 5th digit.

    Multiple burns

    Speech - attempted to communicate with care-givers once it realized they were attempting to care for it. Multiple burns on hands, feet, legs and body; some 2nd and 3rd degree burns, using "rule of nines" approximately 45 per cent of body with burns.

    Doctor and Vet working together providing care and moved it to unknown location locally. This notice given in violation of orders given by BLM, DOI and DF&W. Witnesses numbered in the area of 30-25. Word is out in the government agencies, and among the firefighters, since an M.D. was called out. Many thought a firefighter was injured.
    (The report continues)

    The Norway Spiral. Was it from a Nova bomb from the andromeda ascendant?

    overtoun bridge in Scotland is one intriguing one.
    For the simple reason of the number of dogs that have thrown themselves off it. (and other spooky occurences.)
    More HERE - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overtoun_Bridge

    Jeez, Overton house, and the bridge really give me the willies.


    My dad was born in Overton, as it was one of the few maternity wards in the area at the time (1949), and it was run by nuns.


    Interestingly, my dad's name is David Byrne, and shares the same name as David Byrne, the musician, and both were born in the same year ish, who's parents lived a few miles apart, and so very likely both were birthed in Overton house.


    Anyway, back to the mysteries surrounding the place.


    The bridge is known as 'dog suicide bridge', and all the dogs that jumped off, did it from the same parapet (it's the second last one on the right if you're walking along it from the direction leading away from the house).


    A father threw his baby off, to it's death, because, in his words, he was told it was the right thing to do.


    A few years ago, a couple who are amongst my best friends, were living a mile up the road from Overton, just by an elevated bit of land, that the locals call the thin place (between worlds), which consists of many craggs, and where many offerings to the hidden ones are scattered all over.


    One day, whilst visiting our friends (Angelfire being one of the group), we decided to investigate the bridge, and explore underneath it.


    Interestingly, my best friend's partner was the only one of us who thought the whole story was hocus pocus, yet when we got to the bridge, she steadfastly refused to go any further than the gate leading down a verge to beneath the bridge.


    Four of us went down, and split off into our own explorations of the stream.


    What I experienced was remarkable, freaky, and I won't ever forget it.


    I crossed the stream, and went under an archway of the bridge, and found an old battered mattress, and evidence of hobo drinking type activities. I then heard a voice in my head, which said 'stay here, light a fire, and stay the night here'.


    The next thing I know, i'm in the stream, on my hands and knees, looking for something, in an almost zombie like state of non awareness, and it wasn't till my friend appeared and asked me what the hell I was up to (without me really being aware that I was scrabbling about in the water, looking for something), and I replied 'i'm searching for dog bones'.


    He immediately said, get yourself together, let's all get the hell out of here now.


    I wasn't the only one who had a voice suggesting things to them whilst exploring.


    Needless to say, none of us will ever visit that bridge again.


    I strongly feel that the dog suicide thing, is caused by manevolent beings from another dimension, encouraging the dogs to jump towards the light, or something similar to that.


    Truly fascinating, and chilling, in equal measures.

    While this is not necessarily an event I believe it is something that we are evolving towards. The power of the human mind is shrouded in mystery.
    When we start to unlock its secrets we will be able to:
    • Communicate without speaking
    • Heal our physical bodies, eliminating most if not all sickness and illness
    • Using our minds to move from one location to another
    • See the full spectrum of colors, seeing colors in sound, music, tone, and voice
    • Feeling connected to everything around us
    • Having a memory that will rival if not surpass the fastest computers
    • Understand the universe and all the souls that live in it
    • Regulate our emotions
    • Discover and use more senses such as intuition
    • Have the wisdom and knowledge to prevent wars before they start, eliminate poverty, racism, corruption
    • Understand and fulfill our purpose

    Bigfoot has a special place in my mystery catalogue.

    12 years ago, before I had ever put any serious thought into alternative theories, a coworker came into work very excited. She pulled me aside when she had the chance, and in a hushed whisper told me that morning when she was driving into work she saw a 'giant white planet of the ape' type animal standing in the middle of the road in her rear view mirror. She said it stood there for a moment, walked to the side of the road and then seemed to disappear behind a power pole.

    Her state that morning was so out of character, and that 'thing' in someone's voice when they're telling the truth, especially from a fresh event, was so clear that it stuck in my head like glue. It's always stayed with me as a curiosity. Especially when I found out years later the extra dimensional stuff seems to be a relatively common element of experiences.
