Isn’t Your Number Divine?

William Sidis-zen

DATELINE:  Baker’s Dozen

Can it really be the sixteenth season of Ancient Aliens?  With the first episode of the new series, we half-expected the Divine Number to be more than twelve. We have come to expect too much too soon.

Yes, they take on the theoretical work of William Sidis, genius from Cambridge and Harvard in 1914, who used a 12-number cycle for his physics. He saw that there were twelve dimensions in the universe, not three.

Even more impressive, there are apparently twelve vortexes around the world, not merely the Bermuda Triangle.

We knew about the 12 apostles and 12 tribes of Israel, but we did not know there were 12 chakras. Call us a day late and a dollar short of twelve hours on the clock.

Whether you go by the shopping dictum of the twelve days of Christmas, or the Twelvth of Never, you may be outnumbered. Move over, Johnny Mathis, it’s not going to happen.

Being contrarian, we waited for the inevitable discussion of a dozen eggs and a dozen donuts. We knew that a baker’s dozen is 13, but not in the world of Ancient Aliens.It is 12 plus one.

You can eliminate all those clunky ten-counts that lead to too many decimals. When he was arrested at a peace rally in 1919, Sidis was sentenced to 12 plus 6 months in a Massachusetts jail, mostly for being flippant with the judge. The jury is still 12 peers who are out for deliberations, but there is only one judge.

Modern science now suggests that the universe is twelve-sided as cosmic significance. It doesn’t take long for Ancient Aliensto note that the United States’ UFO secret body is called Majestic-12, notables secretly in contact with space civilizations. The show hints that Harry Truman deliberately chose 12 members (we theorize because he had a dozen donuts for breakfast).

From DNA to musical notes, we are suffused with twelve ding dongs of knowledge. The series claims that the Mayan calendar predicted FRB (fast radio bursts) and the 12thparticle of physics all in 2012. You had better be able to understand the Book of Revelations to figure out this dipsy-doodle episode.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hunt for Elusive Unitah Skinwalker

DATELINE: Pre-TV Series

 Knapp Time.

 Two years previous to the History Channel series, the “paranormal investigator” named Jeremy Corbell took on the subject with his viewpoint. He rounded up George Knapp who had done 20 years of research—including work with Robert Bigelow before he sold the ranch and its rights to the new TV series owner.

The film is called Hunt for the Skinwalker.

Skinwalker Ranch is a paranormal Disneyland, according to this movie.

Corbell intones like he is Rod Serling stealing Twilight Zone phrases in his narrative. He found his matchmate in George Knapp, aging and renewed UFO hunter for decades. Knapp has boxes of old videotaped interviews and paper documents. Korbell won fame by bringing Bob Lazar out of hiding a few years ago to give an updated opinion on Area 51.

This is George Knapp’s seminall life work, apparently never digitized nor copied for posterity. Videos were never made into DVD and audio tape look like you couldn’t find the proper equipment to play them. No one has looked at this material in years. Now, the Hunt for the Skinwalker will make an attempt. It’s clearly enough to spark History Channel’s interest in doing a series two years later.

Korbell likens the area to “Area 52” and largely lets dramatic Knapp do narration duty. He knows how to make mystery more bizarre, for sure.

Knapp related the story of how he tried to do everything to provoke the poltergeist, UFOs, ghosts, orbs, or other phenomena, to no avail, even doing some forbidden digging. He was attacked only by mosquitos. He also knew Robert Bigelow and reveals that the strange billionaire did not want the associated horrors beyond UFOs. He indicated that Bigelow was warned off the property—and sold it to Brandon Fuglar.

Fulgar shows up in this film, refusing to identify himself because it would hurt his business “empire,” which is Fuglar to a T. However, something changed his mind between making this Corbell movie and the History series.

Here the cattle mutilations and other worldly voices are given far more attention.

Neither Corbell, nor Knapp, has any participation in the TV series. And, the movie is far better than the Fuglar produced show.
