‘You have to ask the question why Halloween has become another “celebration” on the ‘party’ calendar. When I was a kid it was simply a “penny for the guy” – also known as ‘legalized begging’ in the UK. Kids back then would sit with an effigy of a 1600’s English Catholic terrorist called Guy Fawkes (now turned into the face of defiance by the movie V for Vendetta), asking for a penny to put our ‘guy’ to a fiery end on Bonfire Night, but at least our little voodoo ‘guys’ looked harmless. Mind you, ‘trick or treat’ is now practically legitimate begging too in many towns across the UK. This blog is in two parts, as I want to cover in some depth the symbolism and imagery associated with the constellation of Orion.’

‘Paracas is located in the Pisco Province in the Inca Region on the Southern coast of Peru. Home of the ground breaking discovery in 1928 by Julio Tello of a massive graveyard containing tombs filled with the remains of individuals with elongated skulls, now known as the famous Paracas Skulls.

They are approximately 3000 years old, and initial DNA analysis of them has revealed that they may not have come from humans, but from a completely new species, according to Paracas Museum assistant director, researcher and author Brien Foerster. Here is the apparent quote from the geneticist who did the testing.’

‘This week, an emergency room in the Pacific Northwest was briefly quarantined after five people—including two police officers and a hospital worker—experienced mysterious hallucinations from an unidentified illness believed to be spread by touch.

According to Oregon Live, the enigmatic incident began early Wednesday morning when a 54-year-old caregiver in North Bend, Oregon, called police to report seven or eight people “trying to take the roof off her vehicle.” Police say they found nothing, but after the caregiver reported the unseen vandals a second time, sheriff’s deputies escorted her to a nearby hospital for suspected hallucinations.’

‘The Great Pyramid at Giza, Egypt, has long been rumored to contain hidden passageways leading to secret chambers. Now a team of researchers has confirmed the 4,500-year-old pharaonic mausoleum contains two unknown cavities, possibly hiding a corridor-like structure and more mysterious features.

‘An unusual condition called sleep paralysis has been frightening people for centuries, and now a new review sums up the many creepy stories from different cultures that try to explain the episodes of waking up and being unable to move.

Cultural explanations that try to account for the terrifying experience of waking up feeling paralyzed range from alien abductions to strange demons creeping into people’s bedrooms and sitting on their chests, according to the review, published in September in the journal Frontiers in Psychology.

Together, the stories show how a single biological phenomenon can be interpreted differently by societies, the researchers, led by José F. R. de Sá of the Jungian Institute of Bahia in Brazil, wrote in their review.’

‘In case your week was going well so far, we’re here to bring you calmly crashing back down to Earth again.

Now we’ve been reassured that this news is nothing to lose sleep over, but you might want to take a few deep breaths.

It turns out that the Earth’s atmosphere is slowly leaking oxygen in a “clear trend” and scientists don’t really know why.

In fact, atmospheric oxygen levels have dropped 0.7% over the past 800,000 years, which scientists had not predicted happening.’

‘You may remember a while back there was a spate of news articles about high-level bankers and bank employees committing suicide. Conspiracy theories were coming left and right, and then as suddenly as the reports started they stopped – just like that. Here is a list of more than 50 of these bankers, in date order, with a brief overview on each of them.

You probably also remember that last year, a dozen holistic doctors either died or went missing over a course of only 90 days. How oddly coincidental.

But the deaths of these bankers and doctors are just the tip of the iceberg.’
