Ghost At Saddle Horn Bar?

The images above come from the Saddle Horn Bar and Grill in Phoenix, AZ. In 2012, owner Jimmy Olaguez told ABC 15 that his security cameras captured two apparitions on video. The bluish image on the left reportedly shows the ghost a little girl who died in a fall over 80 years ago. The photo on the left shows a strange shadow that hovered behind the bar and then disappeared.
The Saddle Horn is around 100 years old and at least two patrons have been shot and killed there. Olaguez wonders if one of the victims still lurks around the bar today. Current customers complain of pokes and pushes from unseen hands.
Check out the news report below. What do you think of the alleged ghost footage?

Finding the Legendary Mongolian Death Worm

Deep within the shifting sands of the Gobi Desert lies the elusive Olgoi-Khorkhoi, The Mongolian Death Worm – or so legend has it.

The Mongolian Death Worm is a bright red worm, a mysterious cryptid said to inhabit the southern Gobi Desert. Local Mongolian tribesmen claim to have seen the creature in their travels, but the stories have never been confirmed, even after many attempts by multiple research expeditions over the years.

Olgoi-Khorkhoi is Mongolian for ‘large intestine worm’, and the stories describe a 1 meter (3 feet) long, bulging worm. It is red, like an intestine filled with blood. Artistic illustrations depict the worm with a gaping round mouth filled with inward-pointing teeth. Some describe it as having a spiky, pointed end, and gift it with the ability to spray deadly burning acid at a target. There are also claims it can discharge electricity from its body. The death worms will reportedly shoot up from beneath the sand without warning to kill its food – camels and rodents - but unwary humans can be prey as well.

The legend says that the Olgoi-Khorkhoi originally laid its eggs in the intestines of a camel and thus acquired its blood red colour.

Many locals are convinced of the existence of the mysterious creature. Even the Mongolian Prime Minister Damdinbazar described the death worm to a western explorer in 1922.

Skeptics largely suspect the tales of the killer worm are folklore only. Second-hand reports are very descriptive and uniform, but as yet none of the accounts have ever been confirmed. Many independent researchers, adventurers, and zoologists have searched the farthest reaches of the Gobi Desert to spot the infamous death worm, but none have succeeded in seeing it, let alone photograph it.

The history of the death worm has been passed down in Mongolia for generations, but only came to the attention of the western world in the 1920s, after paleontologist Roy Chapman Andrew’s book described the lore in detail. Andrew remained skeptical of its existence.

Czech cryptozoologist Ivan Mackerle is credited as being the foremost investigator of the death worm. He learned of the worm from a student, and made the trip to southern Mongolia in 1990 to uncover more. His investigations were difficult, as he found many Mongolians were loath to speak of the legendary beast. Making it more complicated was an order by the Mongolian government outlawing searches for the death worm. Eventually the ban fell, and Mackerle was able to search for answers.

In his book "Mongolské záhady", Mackerle chronicled the worm from second-hand reports. The creature is a "sausage-like worm over half a metre (20 inches) long, and thick as a man's arm, resembling the intestine of cattle. Its skin serves as an exoskeleton, molting whenever hurt. Its tail is short, as if it were cut off, but not tapered. It is difficult to tell its head from its tail because it has no visible eyes, nostrils or mouth.” He never witnessed it himself, but Ivan Mackerle eventually determined the Olgoi-Khorkhoi could be real. 

LiveScience quotes British biologist Dr. Karl Shuker, author of the book "The Unexplained". Shuker describes the legendary beasts as “one of the world's most sensational creatures […] concealed amid the sands of the southern Gobi Desert. ... It spends much of its time hidden beneath the desert sands, but whenever one is spotted lying on the surface it is scrupulously avoided by the locals." Shuker himself never reported witnessing the Mongolian Death Worm, but hypothesizes that the worm might be the carnivorous amphisbaenid, a limbless, burrowing lizard that lives in warm climates.

Other researchers suggest the descriptions loosely match the death adder, a member of the cobra snake family. The death adder, found in Australia and New Guinea, is physically similar to the death worm, and is able to spit venom several feet.

Its reputation for being a clearly unpleasant animal hasn’t deterred expeditions into the desert by journalists, entertainment reporters, and reality-television programs as recently as 2009. All examinations, including a National Geographic Channel series on the worm, have come up empty handed and have drawn no definitive conclusions. Could the Mongolian Death Worm be nothing but legend? 

This elusive cryptid has never revealed itself to outside investigations, but to the local population it is very real, and is yet another danger to avoid in the treacherous Gobi Desert.

Communication with one Reptilian Goddess via Facebook?

Not that long ago I was in communication with someone via Facebook who claimed they were a channel for an entity calling itself the Goddess, which also told me it was a member of an alien species it called Sentry.

Below are parts of the messages I was given. These messages began to scare me somewhat, after the entity claimed it was reptilian and inferred that it was the serpent in the garden of Eden; so I deleted them from my inbox and am going from memory. This being's exact words when I asked it about the snake that tricked Eve into tasting the forbidden fruit of knowledge were, "I'm glad you've heard of us." It continued:

"You have seen the power of the Triangles. You have seen our other symbols too. Pyramids, and Medusa. When you see them this is us." 

Then after telling me some general things about my childhood to win my trust, it also told me:

"You were chosen from the time you were born. You are one of 245,000 around the world chosen to be our messengers."

My ego stroked, the entity then said it was looking forward to “returning” to Earth and called humans "our children". It then elaborated, "You know from your research that mankind couldn't have evolved by accident on this planet." The implication being this being's race the Sentry had some role in steering mankind's evolution.

The Sentry, if they existed that is, seemed to know things about my childhood, nothing very concrete just general things. The being claimed that they had been sending me messages. Pyramids in particular seemed to fit because my childhood bedroom used to have an Egyptian theme. 

Almost starting to half believe this nonsense, I decided to throw the reptile "Goddess" a curve ball question to see if it was genuine or not. I asked it the first thing that came into my head, "What about the dinosaurs?" I had had a childhood fascination with prehistoric beasts and collected magazines which came with dinosaur models to build.

I wanted to see if this alleged alien being knew anything about this. When the person acting as a messenger for the Goddess suddenly "lost the connection" I breathed a shy of relief. I wrote a quick message back explaining why I asked the question, and got back to writing my next article.

About half an hour or so passed and nothing, then suddenly I had a new message in my inbox, the connection had been re-established.  "Your fascination with dinosaurs was just a childish obsession, it was not a message." Well not so impressive as I just explained this after all.

At this point I was pretty convinced this was just a hoaxer with a decent knowledge of conspiracy/UFO lore, who was just having some fun with a "conspiracy theorist". But still the answers to the questions I was asking were entertaining, and sometimes even a little fascinating. So I continued to play the game.

Next the "Goddess" made the claim that certain conspiracy researchers were working for the Illuminati and could not be trusted. Perhaps what we disagreed the most on, however, was when it told me humans only do things for material gain, and that this was the only reason for the global conspiracy to create a world government. There is no Transhumanist plan to live forever, or alien agenda to take over the planet. The Illuminati is run by ordinary humans for profit, nothing more it tried to reassure me. "Try to be rationale. You must not spread false truths by sharing everything you learn,” it said.

"Do not refuse the gift you have been given," it then insisted. According to this being I was chosen to record the messages this person was getting to share them with the rest of mankind to prepare them for the return of the reptilians to Earth. It even started calling me the "Prophet." This was all getting too weird, even for someone who writes about UFOs and the paranormal. 

I questioned further about where these reptilians are returning from. I wanted to know if they were good or evil and thought this would help answer this for me. It came out that they had been trapped in some other dimension, which although compatible with the writings of David Icke didn't exactly match up with the earlier claim that they came from another planet.

At this point it was beginning to get angry and when I would not "submit" to its will, even began threatening me with what sounded like a curse. "I will rip you apart from the inside out slowly," or something nasty like that it hissed back on its messenger's keyboard and the connection was broken again. 

Not a very religious man, I still reached for the Bible I was given by the Gideons back in school that night. I don’t know if this person who claimed they were getting these messages was just having some fun by winding me up, delusional, or really in contact with aliens or demons or something else. That said, I am pretty confident it was just a bizarre and at times scary hoax that I am recording here, just in case any of this information is usual to anybody out there. Be careful who you chat with on Facebook and other social media sites.

Space Station Covered With Plankton — Bizarre Discovery Baffles Scientists

A strange discovery on the International Space Station has left scientists baffled. It turns out that the space station has traces of living sea plankton on the surface of the spacecraft that orbits more than 200 miles above the Earth’s surface, and well above the planet’s atmosphere.
“The results of the experiment are absolutely unique,” said Russia’s chef Space Station scientist Vladimir Solovyev. “We have found traces of sea plankton and microscopic particles on the illuminator surface. This should be studied further.”
Solovyev said that the plankton is not a form of alien or extraterrestrial life. In fact. the organisms are native to oceans right here on Planet Earth. But how they got on the Space Station is total mystery.
The organisms were discovered during a routine polishing of the Space Station illuminators, the type of housekeeping that is “particularly needed during long space flights,” Solovyev said.
Scientists believe that the organisms could have been living on the outside of the International Space Station for many years. The first components of the space station were launched in 1998 and the station has been occupied by different crews of astronauts for almost 14 full years now.
But not until Russian astronauts Olek Artemyev and Alexander Skvortsov discovered the plankton during recent spacewalk were scientists aware that the living organisms had attached themselves to the Space Station — somehow.
The Russian science chief said he was in the dark as to “how these microscopic particles could have appeared on the surface of the space station.”
While the plankton are of a type that typically live on the surface of large bodies of water, the type found on the Space Station are not native to Baikonur, Khazakstan, which is the area from which the space station was launched.
“Plankton in these stages of development could be found on the surface of the oceans.
“This is not typical for Baikonur. It means that there are some uplifting air currents which reach the station and settle on its surface,” Solovyev said.
Certain microscopic organisms can not only survive but thrive even in extremely hostile environments, such as outer space where there is no oxygen and where temperatures are extreme.
But the real mystery remains how the plankton got onto the surface of the International Space Station in the first place.

New Photograph of Nessie?


John Gillies, who was at Loch Ness at the same time as me last week, has put up an interesting picture of an object in the loch. It is a still from a piece of footage taken on the 11th August.


The brief clip, as far as I can tell, is not the footage that contains the subsequent still image. I do not think it is a bird as I see no body. Admittedly, a passing wave can temporarily obscure the body, but the surrounding waves do not look rough enough.

Perhaps a branch protruding from a horizontally floating tree trunk? Perhaps, but again the same argument applies to the missing bird body. John did not see it at the time of filming, so it is always worth reviewing images when one returns home.

Does it have Nessie potential? I would need to see the original film before making further comment.

The Mystic Cannibal Monks of India

Throughout human history there have been a myriad of cults and religious sects that have to varying degrees inspired curiosity, wonder, bafflement, and even fear or disgust. Whether it is from their bizarre practices, disturbing rituals, or extreme fringe beliefs, some of these groups have long exuded an inscrutable sense of mystery and menace to outsiders. One mysterious group that commands a good amount of fear, loathing, and often horror, is a bizarre tribe of cannibal mystics in India known as the Aghori, or Aghori sadhus.
TvyamNb-BivtNwcoxtkc5xGBuGkIMh_nj4UJHQKuoXVKsh1rxR3RhAl13_LG8OpWdXBlAii-Y_iDwg
The Aghori sadhus are an ascetic sect of Hinduism, specifically they are Shaivites, meaning they are devoted to Shiva, a powerful Hindu god of death and destruction often ominously referred to as “The Destroyer” and “The Transformer.” The Aghori are said to have split from another Shiva worshipping order, the Kapalika, sometime in the 14th century, but their sect in its present form is believed to have derived from an ascetic by the name of Kina Ram, who is thought to be an incarnation of Shiva and to have lived for 150 years during the late 18th century. The Aghori are monists who deviate from traditional Hindu beliefs in that they do not make a distinction between purity and impurity. They basically believe that the universe is non-dualistic, meaning that the pure, the impure, and indeed all opposites are indistinguishable from one another, and that they are all a part of the same thing. To the Aghori, nothing in the universe is “good” or “bad,” but rather all a manifestation of their god and thus everything is god-like and perfect. To deny anything is to deny their Supreme Being. They believe all other humans, including other Hindus and Hindu sects, are living in a world of illusion
The Aghori seek to free themselves from the cycle of reincarnation by realizing their own place within the absolute. They believe that they are a part of Shiva, and ultimately wish to transcend from their body, or shava, to an incarnation of Shiva himself. To do this, they must become indifferent to everything. They must embrace death, push through disgust and traditional fears, and deny physical pleasures such as sexuality as well as emotions such as hatred, greed, or shame. Likewise, they do not want to leave any physical mark upon the world and as such shun the idea of having families and domestication. Through total denial of oneself, transcending taboos, and embracing everything equally, the Aghori believe they will inevitably remove earthly bonds and attain enlightenment in the form of breaking the cycle of reincarnation and becoming a part of Shiva. The Aghori also believe that the fastest way of acheiving the light of enlightenment is to travel into the deepest darkness first, through seeking purity in death and what most consider to be evil or filthy.
It is this unorthodox approach, as well as their non-dualistic desire to embrace all, even taboos, filth, pollution, and death, that form the basis of the bizarre Aghori practices and rituals that may seem by turns to be strange, ghastly, or horrifying to an outsider.

The most seemingly harmless traits of Aghori lie in their constant profanity and use of marijuana. Aghori believe that explicit profanity can help shed taboos in an effort to achieve enlightenment, and some are known to gush into profane tirades at a moments notice for no reason at all. Aghori are also constantly smoking marijuana, an act which they claim not to do for pleasure, but rather to enhance or heighten spiritual experiences and to enable them to concentrate more fully on rituals and mantras. They also do not cut their hair, and beards or long, matted or dreadlocked hair are all characteristic of an Aghori sadhu.
In an effort to totally deny themselves and break through their own weak emotions of fear and disgust, Ahgori are known for their disturbing tendency to eat pretty much anything. The diet of an Aghori is truly enough to make most people cringe. They will eat rotten food, putrefied garbage, and even excreta such as human feces or urine. Often these items will be consumed out of a human skull bowl or some other dish made from human bones. While most people will see this as revolting, the Aghori believe that the consumption of such things kills the ego and defies the human perception of beauty. Besides, since they do not believe that anything can be “pure” or “impure,” it does not matter to them whether the food is filth or something that would be more palatable to outsiders. To an Aghori, eating garbage is all the same as eating anything else.
The dark themes of death and the use of human remains also play a large part in the rituals and daily life of the sect. In an effort to totally confront death and decay, the Aghori commonly live in or near cemeteries or cremation grounds, which are thought to be holy places where Shiva lives and are representative of the final living place for everyone. At cremation grounds, the Aghori gather ash with which to cover their bodies. Indeed, often Aghori will wear nothing but human ash smeared all over them, with some only wearing a very small piece of cloth just large enough to barely cover their private parts. They will occasionally wear jewelry or trinkets made from human bone fragments, and some make use of walking sticks made from a human femur. It is also not uncommon to see an Aghori with a grisly bowl fashioned from a human skull, called a kapala, which they will use either as a drinking vessel for liquor, a dish for food, or as a begging bowl.

The use of the dead does not stop at the fashioning of trinkets and bowls. Aghori are known to use corpses as a sort of altar upon which to pray or meditate, a practice known as shava samskara, believing that the dead body is a symbol of their own body. The sect is also perhaps most notorious for their grisly practice of cannibalism. The act of cannibalism is part of a ritual with the aim of not only absorbing alleged medicinal effects such as staving off aging, but also facing the duality of life and death and gaining transcendence from one’s lower self into the universal consciousness. The human flesh that is consumed is cut from corpses and then either eaten raw, cooked over an open flame, or sometimes even in a putrid state.
As grisly and revolting as this may all seen, it is not thought that the Aghori actually kill anyone for the bodies used in their rituals or for the purpose of fashioning macabre items. The corpses are mostly gathered from the bodies of the dead floating down the sacred Ganges River. In India, many bodies are cremated, but in Hinduism there are certain types of people that are not to be cremated. These include children, holy men, pregnant women, unmarried women, and those who have died of either leprosy, suicide, or snake bites. Rather than cremation, these bodies are cast upon the holy waters of the Ganges River to be carried away and have all sins washed away. Even bodies that are set on fire to be cremated will often be floated down the river, where the fire will eventually go out leaving them only half-burnt. The Aghori will fish these corpses from the river for their purposes, after which they will do a prayer for the dead before using the bodies as altars, fashioning items from the bones, or consuming their flesh.

For all of this dark imagery of death and decay associated with the Aghori, they are also known for their potent healing magic. Aghori healers are purportedly able to do healing rituals in which they transfer illness, disease, and bad health from the patient and into themselves, after which they will expel it through magical powers. It is said that these healing acts please Shiva, who in turn gives the Aghori sorcerer even more powers over nature. It has even been claimed by Aghori shamans that they have managed to concoct potent medicines from concentrated oils within the corpses they collect which are able to cure all manner of ailments, even the most frightening diseases such as cancer or AIDS.
Of course, it should be expected that a cult that practices such unorthodox and what some might call disgusting practices is shunned. Certainly the Aghori are feared and opposed by some segments of the population in their homeland, yet there are others who revere them for their alleged healing powers. They are also mostly tolerated due to the fact that they do not murder or inflict violence on others to further their religious practices, as unsavory as those might be. In modern times, members of this mystical sect can be found mostly in northern India along the Ganges River, particularly in a place called Varanasi, where their most sacred temple is found. This holiest of Aghori temples is said to hold the remains of Kina Ram, the original incarnation of Shiva that started the modern Aghori sect.
There are many religions, sects, and cults throughout the world that are practiced by people of all nationalities and races. All of them have their own true way towards what essentially all human beings want, a final answer and transcendence to ultimate truth. As disconcerting as the practices of the Aghori may be, should they not be allowed to pursue their own path to what we all seek? Who can say? Whether one agrees with their practices or not, the secretive, cannibalistic, magic practicing cult of the Aghori still exists in India and shows no sign of disappearing any time soon. One can only wonder if their bizarre way of life has truly shown them the way to the enlightenment they seek.
