Nigel Watson finds that a new Canadian book makes a refreshing change from most books on Government involvement with UFOs, by looking at the relationship between official agencies and their response to public questioning. pelicanist.blogspot.com/2022…

Philately will certainly get you somewhere if you follow Luis Gonzáles's excellent guide to UFOs and science fiction on stamps. "An excellent addition to any philatelic or ufological library." pelicanist.blogspot.com/2022…

Collins and Little give us naked shaman, balls of light, Skinwalker Ranch, Carl Jung, UFO contactees, and a lot of speculation, but Nigel Watson asks do they just "make everything fit their particular theory and there is no room for counter-argument." pelicanist.blogspot.com/2022…

Magonia' latest book review is 52 years overdue, but still well worth reading. The late Peter Rogerson on science, authoritarianism, the repression of ideas and the life of Charles Fort. pelicanist.blogspot.com/2022… #Fortean #Forteanism #CharlesFort

How did a chewed-up wooden bowl come to be regarded as the cup from which Christ and the Disciples drank at the Last Supper? John Rimmer reviews a book that explains this, and gives clues as to how other legends are created. pelicanist.blogspot.com/2022… @amberleybooks @Myth_Dweller

"It’s a curious irony that the artist Walter Sickert, born in Germany but raised in England, is probably best known these days for what he was not, and he was not – with any likelihood whatsoever – Jack the Ripper." @Hellbound_Heart on the Sickert exhibition at Tate Britain.

Always happy to help give this story another outing.
A classic blast from the past. Its still a mystery and I suspect a tulpa. Well, specifically not a tulpa although we can recreate the dhubtab ritual with a bit of knowledge of chakra emanations, but we can think of it as a tulpa. But it would be wrong or at least inaccurate.

'Fake news' is nothing new, as John Rimmer discovers in this entertaining and informative book about amazing 18th century hoaxes, that still have resonances in today's headlines. pelicanist.blogspot.com/2022… @saqibooks
