Discoveries. . .

Quite by accident, I discovered this site put up by Lloyd Pye, a researcher in what he terms "Alternative Knowledge". He had been researching Hominids, which would include Sasquatch, Yeti, or the Abominable Showman. However, his research was interrupted in 1999 by a request from a couple in El Paso to check out for whatever information he could get on two skulls that had been discovered by a young girl in the '30s in Mexico, some 150 miles southwest of Chihuahua. She had held on to what she called her "souvenirs" but finding herself close to death, had given them to that couple in El Paso.

He accepted the challenge thinking that it would not involve more than a couple of months, 6 months maximum. He took the two skulls to a number of laboratories and began a saga that, not only would pit him against established scientific "dogma", but ended up involving him for close to 12 years of his life!

With the advent of DNA research becoming more and more advanced, he finally got some answers in 2010. For me, watching his video, it presented some answers to troubling questions about our human origins. It's pretty difficult to deny the very physical presence of that skull, even harder to deny the DNA results now that it has finally been subjected to more advanced DNA analysis.

If you are interested, check this short presentation at:

For a more comprehensive presentation taking us to the discovery of the skulls and the 12 long years that it took to get some answers, check out this site:

I will now go back to floor fixing and my other blog to refrain from publishing this to boondocking blogger, although I'm sorely tempted. To paraphrase I don't recall whom, "The mind is like a parachute--it works best when open", or something of that nature, I do think that in a search for possible answers, we must keep an open mind.  If you feel that I should publish, please let me know. I'd hate to alienate readers.

The Universe is indeed a wondrous creation about which we have far more questions than answers, wouldn't you agree?

IANDS - Near-Death Experiences

I have subscribed to the newsletter from the International Association for Near-Death Studies, Inc. for some time. Today I received the latest one and am wowed by the news. Link is

First is a documentary that features an interview with Birmingham’s (Alabama) Dr. T. Lee Baumann, a noted author and a researcher. His background is medical and he claims that there is scientific research to support the validity of the near-death experience. Thanatology is the study of death and dying and author Barbara Harris Whitfield, who claims to have had a near-death experience is a thanatologist. She has been studying in that field for decades. She's also being interviewed. Finally Alice Vaughn, a medical social worker with Hospice of Montgomery, talks about her experiences regarding patients’ behaviour at death. Fascinating. And this should charm the sceptics right out of their tight-fitting socks, it's based on oh my! science with a capital S- the kind that Einstein is famous for, pardon my cynical tone. And quantum physics, my favourite. Here is the link to the video that lasts a little over an hour and is not only informative but excellent, in my humble opinion. Here's the link for the documentary:

Also in the newsletter is the announcing of a show called " I Survived - Beyond and Back" on the biography channel. These feature real life stories of people who have gone through the experience and have returned to tell us about it. Here is the link

Previews of some of the show episodes feature real life experiencers and will debut on December 5th. The newsletter also gives links to short videos of interviews with Clint Eastwood, director of Hereafter, and Matt Damon (as the psychic in the movie) with Katie Couric.

I have been very involved with a number chores and trips and have not been able to develop this site any further. I still have to scrape the subfloor of my rig of dried up adhesive and install new vinyl tiles. There aren't enough hours in the day...

My post will end here. I want to leave you enough time to check the above. Your comments, as always, are very welcome.
