PODcast: Ong's Hat - Did a fringe science cult discover a way to travel
to an alternate universe?
The story of the Institute for Chaos Studies that supposedly discovered a way to travel to an alternate universe.
Great podcast, DC! I had never heard of Ong's Hat before. I think the reason not many people have heard of it is perhaps that it's known on more of
a regional basis.
Anyway, I find the whole science of Chaos Theory quite interesting. I remember my brother read up on it many years ago. He showed me some fascinating
pictures of fractels and waxing poetic about some guy named Mandelbrot.
As far as Ong's Hat goes, I think conjoining of cult and science is a scary, scary thing.
Hey!!! I never knew what ong's hat was before!! I really like anything related to the chaos theory too, the podcast rocked the house! For me, I
personally liked the talk of when you said that he may have been in an alternate universe. I never knew what ong's hat was before this. Good job!
One morning long ago while waking up, a voice from a Lucid Dream kept saying, "Don't forget Ong's Hat, Ong's Hat, Ong's Hat". I do not hear
voices and feel the need to make that clear and repeat that it was a lucid Dream.
So, I got into studying everything I could find on the subject and do not feel this is a hoax. Many people already know about alternate worlds.
I lived about a half mile from Ongs Hat for many years. A place called Country Lakes near Browns Mills. It happend to be the time of this story.
If you read the story and the locations mentioned you cannot help but laugh at the mistakes in the distances and relative locations.
I give it Zero credability just on that. Ongs Hat is on the opposite sided of Pemberton township from McGuire AFB. The site that relates this said
something like half a mile through the woods as I recall. Half a mile through the woods from Ongs Hat in that direction would be the large town of
Browns Mills with the AFB above and to the opposite side.
I read it years ago, It was interesting until the local geography made it fall apart.
I have heard from many that there is no Ong's Hat where it is supposed to be and yet so much of the story seems plausible. In some ways it does
appear as pure BS and yet if studied in it's entirety, there seems to be something to it.
Never-the-less, I thought it was very creative how they made a story that appeared to be a catalog. I do so like the idea of parallel worlds whether
true or not, though.
