I was wondewring if anyone here knows anything about the alleged pod people found growing from some tree in India. There's also supposed to be some kind of "monkey people" there - I don't know but a buddy of mine swears he saw something about it on Discovery or something. I just wanna shut him up so any help I can get - you know - to get him to close his bleepin' pie hole.

I think what you are referring to are known as the Naree Pons. If you do a search here you will find a couple of short topics about them, and only one or two links. I believe the story of the Naree Pons is that they are woman who are meant for the present incarnation of Buddah, but if he doesnt come and get them they fall off the tree and whither.

Ive also heard that they've done DNA samples on these people and discovered both 'Plant' and 'Human' DNA. Anyone have anymore info on this? I think there was a special on Sci-Fi about it. But its kind of hard to get that when you're temporarily living in the UK.

Very interesting topic you have here.IMO, i tink that picture you just posted looks like a very good wooden carving.You could search about it ont he net, although my searches turned out futile.You could search the discovery or nat geo channel websites for it.

I remember watching something on Discovery about this.
I found one site that has some info Here and then a pretty good Google search Here
Not too many images though,just the one that has made it's rounds here and on TV.
Seems Discovery has removed any info about it though.

Yeah I remeber that as well, there was something about human chromosomes or something in them. I wish I could recall it as I remember a chill going up my back when they said it, otherwise I might have forgotten about them entirely. I'm glad I'm not the only one who saw it. They are striking oddities enough just in appearance but there is more to them than just funky pods, I wish I had paid more attention and am eager to see if anybody else on ATS has additional information. And no, they aren't wood carvings, they really look that much like people. I think local folklore about them would be an interesting study.

Women growing on tree eh. an intriguing concept.

its either a decent hoax, or its legit. unfortunately its difficult to comment on with the lack of info on them. would love to see the results of DNA tests.

Do a bit of searching. There are already several threads on this subject, good ones indeed.

They apparently have on at the NORTON P. ELECTRIC SIDESHOW MUSEUM in california if any of you guys live near there, I'm a couple thousand miles away so it probably wouldn't be worth the trip lol. Another name I found being thrown around for them is narew pons, and I found another forum which somebody explained the following.. This is the story involving Bhudda I was familiar with.


www.unexplained-mysteries.com...
the Naree Pons are involved in a legend about Buddha. He was meditating during the day under a tree and these "maidens" would spring forth out of the branches to try and entice Buddha away from his transcendental state with their charms. When night fell, the Naree Pons would curl back up into the tree and blend in with the vegetation.

dogpile.com search engine turned up a few more hits than google did, but otherwise there is an austounding lack of information available on them, hell I can't even find what species of plant they come from, descriptions range from them being a root of an herb to being a pod of a tree which are full of pollen. Wierd, these are being studied here in the US at a couple universities, but there is no information on them whatsoever save a few conspiracy sites and some testimonials from folks that have traveled to Thailand and saw them. Unfortunately it looks as though this fascinating oddity is only being talked about on conspiracy sites alot of which are calling them dried fairies, which is fine but I would like to know more about them. You'd think a search query would at least throw up a genus/species somewhere.

sounds more like he was tripping than anything else.

Twitchy What phrase did you use for the search? I've been typing in 'Pod people' and I've just received results for some B Sci-Fi movie made in 1988.

Simulacra:Naree Pons


Interesting indeed

Pity not so much information besides this what is already covered here...

For those of you in the California area, apparently there is a Naree Pons on display at Nortion P. Electric Sideshow museum.

Thailand is where they are from, pretty close to Bangkok. I think the plant is native to that area, saw a few accounts of folks smashing them and them being full of pollen, so apparently they are not so rare as I thought they were if these folks (tourists?) were smashing the pods so see what was in them. I seem to remember something more to the Bhudda story to them as well, something to do wit the type of tree bhudda meditated under, but I may not be remembering it correctly, has been years since I heard about them and like I said the information on them is extremely scarce. Frankly the lack of information is unprecedented in internet research endeavors, I'm no botanist but I have done an extensive bit of research into herbal lore and plants in mythology, etc. and have yet to come across a more poorly documented species.
