So I listened to one of the ATS live shows where George Knapp was a guest, I've also listened to a few interviews in which he talks about Skinwalker Ranch. I even went out and got the book "Hunt for the Skinwalker". This thread deals with material from these sources.
I wonder if any of you recall the Sci-Fi movie, "The Sphere"? If you haven't, it's worth a watch.(Spoiler alert)
If I understood it correctly the Sphere enabled the scientists to manifest their thoughts in reality once they entered it, amplifying both the conscious and the subconscious. They obviously didn't know this and they eventually became their own worst enemy, all the while thinking they were dealing with an intelligent alien life form. People fear the unknown, which is probably why their fears were the first to materialize.
Could the same thing be going on at Skinwalker? I know this theory isn't enough to explain all the goings on at the ranch, and I would not even go so far as to say that there isn't some form of intelligence involved. It is the random, unrepeatable nature of some of the events that make me suspicious. It was said that the scientists always felt that the entity was always one step ahead of them, that it always knew their intentions, as if it were able to read their thoughts.
1) The instances of items that went missing, and the groceries that were found repacked in a shopping bag
2) The bulls that were loaded into a trailer
3) The "giant" wolf that approached the family when they just arrived at the ranch
4) The "RV" spaceship that landed close to the house, and the humanoid inside the spacecraft that was staring directly at the house
5) The mutilations that occurred only minutes after members of the family had seen the particular animal alive and healthy
6) The portal which was seen by the scientists, and the damage to their camera equipment
Each of the above are occurrences in which the entity does something specifically in order to get the attention of the particular person(s) involved.
For number 1 - The entity didn't misplace items that were rarely used, it took items whose absence would be noticed
For number 2 - The four bulls that were loaded into the trailer were the prize bulls of the Gorman's. Losing these bulls would mean financial ruin
For number 3 - This giant wolf approaches the family (unusual behavior), spends a bit of time around them, then tries to drag one of their cattle off. Multiple gunshots didn't have much effect on the animal, which then calmly left the area. It is a show of strength and fearlessness that gave all members of the family chills.
For number 4 - It is almost as if the entity knew very well that Ellen Gorman was at home by herself. This is an extremely terrifying situation for any person, alone at home, to be in
For number 5 - Mutilations are undoubtedly disturbing, but having a mutilation occur in broad daylight, only minutes after you yourself has seen the animal alive and well is even more frightening. The entity could have chosen any animal on the ranch, at any time.
For number 6 - The scientists approached this as in investigation. They weren't concerned for their livelihoods, or their own family members. They were after the evidence, which is something that continued to elude them. There were numerous experiences, just no evidence. It was as if the entity knew what they wanted but wouldn't let them have it.
To me the following could be possibilities:
1) The events and activity on the ranch are being manifested by the residents, consciously/unconsciously.
2) The entity is able to read minds and is intentionally playing on the fears of the residents. Perhaps this is simply a show of superiority
Please share your thoughts or any experiences you have with something like this.
For me, the poltergeist theory is an alien explanation. I don't think of invisible ghosts or spirits but aliens from another planet. If ghosts are real if anything they are tied into the alien visitation phenomena, not just isolated events, same as big foot.
"In the 1850s they were going to close the patent office because everything had been invented " Lang said
In 1898, he was appointed as the United States Commissioner of Patents, and held that post until 1901. In that role, he is famous for purportedly saying "Everything that can be invented has been invented." However, this has been debunked as apocryphal by librarian Samuel Sass. In fact, Duell said in 1902: In my opinion, all previous advances in the various lines of invention will appear totally insignificant when compared with those which the present century will witness. I almost wish that I might live my life over again to see the wonders which are at the threshold. Another possible origin of this famous statement may actually be found in an earlier Patent Office Commissioner, Henry Ellsworth's 1843 report to Congress. In it Ellsworth states, "The advancement of the arts, from year to year, taxes our credulity and seems to presage the arrival of that period when human improvement must end." This quote was apparently then mispresented and attributed to Duell, who held the same office in 1899.
