The Death of Gaia

Police are facing questions over the handling of the search for Gaia Pope, whose body was found near a coastal path 11 days after she vanished from a Dorset seaside town.

Three members of one family arrested last week on suspicion of murdering the 19-year-old have been released from further investigation after a postmortem found no indication that anyone else was involved in Pope’s death.

A relative of the arrested trio claimed police could have found Pope sooner had they not focused on the theory that she had been the victim of foul play.

Pope’s family said they also had questions to ask but thanked the police and other emergency services for their efforts. They paid emotional tributes to Pope, describing her as a “wise, magnificent soul,” and vowed to stay strong for the sake of her two sisters.

Specialist police search teams found Pope’s body on Saturday afternoon close to a craggy stretch of coast on the Isle of Purbeck, not far from where items of her clothing were found on Thursday. The spot is about a mile from the outskirts of Swanage, from where she vanished on 7 November.

Police said she had not suffered any injuries that would suggest anyone else was involved. The cause of death may not be known for some time because toxicology and other tests are being carried out.

Dorset police said no further action would be taken against Rosemary Dinch, 71, her son Paul Elsey, 49, and her grandson Nathan Elsey, 19, who were all arrested on suspicion of murder.

Dinch’s ex-husband Greg Elsey criticised the police over the arrests. He said the spot where Pope’s body was found by police was one of her favourite places and should have been searched carefully earlier.

He said he believed Pope went to Dinch’s house in Swanage on the day she vanished because it was a safe place. Elsey said: “She knew Rosemary was an elderly, kind lady so she felt safe to go there. She [Pope] was in a terrible state.”

Elsey argued that if police had concentrated more on Pope’s distressed state they might have launched a more effective search. “I think a bigger search would have taken place immediately. They could have put helicopters up and they may have found her alive,” he said.

“They [the police] decided my family were involved when all they did is show kindness. If they had handled this properly, Gaia would have been found a lot earlier, but instead of that they have totally mishandled it.”

He said the investigation had taken a “terrible toll” on his family and that Dinch and Nathan Elsey “collapsed on the floor crying” when they learned Pope’s body had been found.
TV actress Natasha Pope
Natasha Pope said her daughter was “a light that will radiate for all eternity”. In a statement, she said: “My beautiful Gaia … a wise, magnificent soul that burns far too bright for this world. Her spirit overflows with love and compassion for others.”

Asked whether he had questions that needed answering, Pope’s father, Richard Sutherland, told ITV News: “Yes, we want to know more. I think we know that she was really struggling. A lot of issues and she clearly just couldn’t cope with that. With the epilepsy, she was just struggling badly.

Sutherland said he last spent a day with Pope just over a week before she went missing. He said:

“I took her to the hairdressers. She told me she would be 45 minutes, she was getting some highlights done in her hair, she was very excited about it. She was about three and a half hours. Then we went for something to eat and had a lovely time together. It was good. She was in a happy mood at the time."

“I want everybody to know that we fight on for the sake of her sisters. She lives on through her sisters and we fight on for them. We love you, we stick together, we will come through this together.

Addressing his daughter directly, he said: “Our beautiful bird has flown. She’s not with us now in body but she will remain in our hearts and with us forever, so while the loss of her in one way is immeasurable, we will treasure you, Gaia, and honour you always. You’re not in pain any more my darling. We love you. I love you.”

It took over 11 days to find her!
The Mirror.Online from 20th November:

Vulnerable Gaia Pope was terrified of coming face to face with attackers who subjected her to a terrifying gang assault when she was just 17, it was reported.

The 19-year-old, whose body was found in a field on Saturday, 11 days after she vanished, suffered from post traumatic stress disorder following the attack two years ago.

No one else was involved in her death, police said last night.

Gaia's father Richard Sutherland, feared her epilepsy may have played a part in her disappearance as she had been warned by doctors that she was at risk of sudden death from the condition.

Mr Sutherland said his daughter struggled with her ill health and the "trauma" of the attack, which he said had a "really devastating effect on her".

He told MailOnline: "She was involved in a situation where some guys assaulted her. I think this had been coming back into her head. She was scared."

He added that Gaia had been confused and suffered from memory loss.

Gaia herself appeared to allude to the attack in one of her last posts on social media.

On November 5, two days before she vanished, the teenager posted a screenshot of what appeared to be texts on her phone with the hashtag #sexualassault.

Detective Superintendent Paul Kessell of Dorset Police said on Sunday: “The postmortem examination has not identified any i­njuries to suggest any other person was involved in her death. The cause of death is undetermined pending toxicology.

“The coroner is involved in the oversight of these examinations but at this time this remains an investigation into an unexplained death.”
Gaia, twin sister, and cousin (I may have them mixed up here, apologies)
The Sun.Online tells us:

TRAGIC Gaia Pope once reported a revenge porn sex beast to cops, it has been revealed, as the troubled teen's parents said she was "no longer in pain".

The 19-year-old, whose body was found close to cliffs near Swanage, Dorset, on Saturday, made an accusation about "Connor Hayes" currently serving a prison sentence for an unrelated offense.

Hayes, 24, was jailed alongside friend William Wright after posting a tape of them having consensual sex with a teenage girl - who is not connected to the tragic student - online.

The pair were jailed in April at Bournemouth Crown Court for charges related to taking an indecent image of a child under 18.

Although the girl was over the age of consent, she was under 18 meaning was illegal to make or possess indecent images of her.

Richard Sutherland had said his daughter Gaia, who suffered from epilepsy, was agonised by an assault by a group of men when she was 17 and suffered from post traumatic stress disorder.

He said: “This had a devastating effect. I think this had been coming back into her head. She was scared, confused.”

He also said that Gaia's behaviour had become increasingly erratic in the days leading up to her disappearance and she had shown up the home of her friend’s grandmother in a “distressed and agitated state”.

Cops last night said they had ruled out murder after a post-mortem examination “has not identified any injuries to suggest any other person was involved” in Gaia's death.

Questions have now been raised over the police's handling of the case, with Rosemary's ex-husband Greg Elsey hitting out at a "witch hunt" and saying the family are "considering legal action".

Mystery of Missing Gaia... Updated

Missing Gaia as Alice in Wonderland 
Synchronicity of numbers 11 7 17  -  7 3 11 - 71 - 19 - 21  

A desperate search for Gaia Pope, 19, was launched after she vanished without a trace last Tuesday.


Nathan Elsey, 19, was last night arrested alongside his grandmother Rosemary Dinch, 71. They have since been released under investigation.

Today Gaia's family released a statement through police, which read: "To Gaia. We all love you forever. We miss you beyond words.

"We will find you darling girl. The thought of seeing the sunshine of your smile again soon keeps us all going and hoping."
Gaia with Russell Brand at Anti-Austerity Protest
Neighbours say Gaia had recently been staying with her auntie Talia Pope in Swanage, just a few streets away from Mrs Dinch and her grandson Nathan Elsey who appeared as an extra in war epic Dunkirk.

In a TV interview before her arrest, the 71-year-old told the BBC how a distressed Gaia banged on her front door asking for help on the day she disappeared.

She said: "She looked upset. Very upset. I am just so pleased because I gave her a cuddle and then she responded.

"Of course I want to find her and I have no idea where she is. She just seems to have disappeared."

Gaia, from Langton Matravers, Dorset, was captured on CCTV running past a house on Morrison Road at 3.39pm last Tuesday.

The last reported sighting of Gaia was at an address in Manor Gardens on Morrison Road at around 4pm.
Despite a huge search operation, the teenager hasn't been seen since.

Maya and Gaia
A desperate post on social media by Gaia's twin sister Maya Pope-Sutherland revealed the teenager has epilepsy and had been suffering from seizures before she went missing.

Describing Gaia as an "angel", Maya said: "Gaia is either in medical crisis or is still running.

"Please if you have seen her let us know, she last told us she was unwell and lost and that she was having lots of seizures.

"If you have seen something don't be frightened.

"She is at risk to herself and at risk of being harmed by OTHERS so please contact the police ASAP we are working tirelessly to find her.

"I just want my Gaia back, the last time I saw Gaia she would think of me. I just can't stop thinking about you girl."

The teenager is believed to have been feeling anxious about a man getting released from prison who was jailed for assaulting her two years ago.

She had been due to attend an appointment with her GP on the afternoon of November 7 but it is thought she never made it.

May Queen/Goddess imagery?
Gaia's mum Natasha Pope is an actress who has appeared in shows such as Inspector Morse and The Bill.

Police are still searching for Gaia and say she was wearing a red checked shirt with white buttons, grey and white woven leggings and white trainers shortly before she vanished.

Senior Investigating Officer Neil Devoto, of Dorset Police's Major Crime Investigation Team, said: "We have looked through CCTV that covers the Swanage area, including transport hubs, and there is nothing to suggest she has left the area.

"Her disappearance is completely out of character and, following our extensive enquiries, we sadly now believe that she may have come to harm."
Dunkirk 2017
The above story caught my eye, not just because of the mystery disappearance, but because of the names associated with it. Gaia being Earth/Mother Earth and Pope being Holy Father/Father. Looking into it a little further, it's clear to see that it's part of a family tradition, probably derived from a TV actress mother, who was a child of the sixties. Naming her daughters Maya and Gaia etc.

It's conjecture, I could be wrong. Even the word 'Sutherland' appears. Then you find anti-war protests, and Russell Brand in the mix, followed by some great hand gestures in pics from Instagram and Facebook.
Mysterious disappearances are always compelling, even with the theory that a medical condition may be the cause of this poor girl's plight. However, further reading shows a sinister angle, were she appears to be 'afraid' of someone.

We hope she's found alive and well, but sadly, with a huge forensics team on the scene, and negative Police statements, it may be unlikely this far down the road.

It's a raw story, so the details are still emerging, and some 'facts' may change. I will keep checking for updates on the situation.


Missing Gaia Pope is caught on CCTV buying an ice cream in a petrol station an hour before she vanished as her heartbroken mother claims daughter, 19, may be 'being held against her will in a van'

She was last seen alive on CCTV on November 7 at 3.40pm - when she was spotted sprinting down Morrison Road in Swanage, Dorset, before banging on 71-year-old Rosemary Dinch's front door in Manor Gardens.

Mrs Dinch and her grandson, aspiring actor Nathan Elsey, also 19, were arrested on suspicion of murder on Monday afternoon but released 24 hours later. The elderly suspect's son, Paul, 49, was also been quizzed by police officers at the time of Gaia's disappearance.

His father Greg Elsey said Paul offered officers his phone and bank card to prove he was working away in Weymouth when she vanished. Mr Elsey claims he now doesn't know where his son is.

Today police have revealed new images that show her at a petrol station in Valley Road between her hometown Langton Matravers and Swanage where she bought an ice cream at 2.55pm - two miles away from Manor Gardens.

She was driven to the petrol station by a member of her family, where she was seen on CCTV looking pale and tired. 

Supposedly, this is Gaia above, well before her strange disappearance and below, at the petrol station last week. You'd be forgiven for thinking she looks like a completely different person now. 


The father of a third suspect arrested on suspicion of murdering Gaia Pope has tonight insisted his son is innocent, hours after police found a pile of clothes feared to belong to the missing teenager.   

Greg Elsey confirmed that his son Paul was arrested today after he attended Poole Police station accompanied by a solicitor.

Speaking outside his home, the 69 year old said: 'My son is 110 per cent innocent. You would not believe what has gone one on. You will be gobsmacked as how the police have performed. Absolutely disgusting.'  

Officers cordoned off an isolated area close to 70ft Dorset cliffs and a quarry earlier today after a walker found a pile of clothes - but no body has been found.
Interesting art
Forensics officers were seen photographing and bagging up clothes feared to be Gaia's. She was wearing grey and white woven leggings, white trainers and a red checked shirt with white buttons when she vanished. 

Teams have also been scouring woodland and dredging ponds in a desperate bid to find her after she disappeared on Tuesday November 7.

The discovery of Gaia's clothes came hours after her father Richard broke down in tears on TV as he said his family were 'distraught' but remain hopeful they will find her alive.

She also who has severe epilepsy and PTSD after a 'traumatic incident' two years ago where she was 'assaulted by some guys', he said.

The business development manager emotionally told ITV news: 'Gaia, you know we love you, you know that. I just want that big hug please, I just want a big hug. We'll get you back and we'll have that big hug.' 

Gaia's mother with PM hopeful Jeremy Corbyn MP

Less than two hours after announcing the discovery of the clothes yesterday, Dorset Police confirmed they had made a third arrest over Gaia’s disappearance.

The man was identified by his family as Paul Elsey, a carpenter who specialises in church restorations. He is the uncle of Nathan Elsey, 19, who was arrested on Tuesday along with his grandmother Rosemary Dinch. They were later released.

Paul Elsey shares a first-floor flat with his mother, Mrs Dinch, 71, in Swanage, where Gaia was last seen. CCTV footage of Gaia on November 7 shows her running down the road towards Paul Elsey’s flat at 3.40pm.

She is said to have banged on his door in a distressed state and Mrs Dinch claimed she then stripped to her bra. 

The pensioner then says she convinced Gaia to put her clothes back on, except for a black jacket which was later recovered from the address. 

Detectives had been trying to track Paul Elsey down since he went missing on Tuesday afternoon, a week after Gaia disappeared. 

They seized his VW Golf and obtained a warrant to search his father’s £460,000 bungalow in Romsey, Hampshire, on Tuesday. 


A 49-year-old man arrested over the suspicious disappearance of Gaia Pope has been released by police under investigation.

Paul Elsey was named by his family as the third person to be arrested in an inquiry into the missing 19-year-old who vanished on November 7 in Swanage.

Shortly before his son’s arrest, Greg Elsey told the Daily Mail: ‘Paul could not stand Gaia. He wanted nothing to do with her. He said her family were bad news.’


Two days before her disappearance Gaia posted a message on Instagram that said she was worried about being 'shut up and put in a cell' with the hashtag #sexualassault and one follower urged her to 'run somewhere safe'.

And on the day of her disappearance, her father said she had become upset following an 'interaction on Facebook'. Shortly after, she fled her aunt's home, where she had been staying, and ran to Nathan Elsey's house.

Paradise Papier Mache!

Long time readers of my blog may recall some of my posts from the past, about the years I spent working for offshore banks, trusts and hedge funds, or dodgy tech/media companies. In those posts I never talked much about the ins and outs of the business. Not because of any confidentiality agreement, but just due to the sheer boredom of it.

Now the ‘Paradise Papers’ are out, and the media is in a frenzy about how the so-called super rich are  trying to hide their millions, or intentionally evading the tax authorities by moving and investing their monies abroad.

Well, for anyone who is not familiar with this type of financial shenanigans.. Simply put…it’s all a load of pap… Like the Panama Papers before them, these Paradise Papers will do nothing to hurt the rich, only cause more regulation for US.
European Central Bank in Frankfurt
Not just the super rich, but just about anyone with any large amount of money can, may, and usually does, have their funds invested (or even just held) abroad. Everyone’s doing it!

Individuals and corporations, in using these facilities abroad, avoid multiple-taxation, and get to actually keep some of the money they ‘earn’. Naturally, it’s also very easy to move money around into other accounts, and sort of ‘lose’ it in the system; which can be very convenient for some.

To put it very simply, the reason these paradise island banks exist in the first place is to do exactly this! Avoid the restrictions that apply in places like the UK for example.

Allegedly, when I worked for an offshore institution, we used ‘instruments’ which moved shell-company monies through various banks using the Belgian SWIFT system through Europe to Asia, or the Pacific VIA the US and Germany. We even transferred monies to places like Iran – where you’re not supposed to – by using the same US and German banks.
Offshore banks a plenty in the Cayman Islands - Hurricane destruction
Now, how many people do you think were involved in offshore banking practices like this? How many people do you think knew about it? It was quite a lot. Why? Because it was all perfectly legal! Yes, legal. Legal loopholes are in place exactly so the rich can do this with their money. Another reason why people like Simon Cowell or Lord Sugar must allegedly be telling lies.

The questions we should really be asking are why are they talking about this at all, and why now? This is something I can’t answer. It could very well be an elite plot to bring the system down, but who knows the thinking behind it? A Russian/ Chinese plot, an American/UK plot, an Israeli plot? Whatever it is, it’s a mushy, sticky mess, that doesn’t hold water for long!

Who is the Elusive Ron Stark?

Winter is coming!
Strange phone calls are happening again.  This time it’s not the Ministry of Defence calling incognito, as it was back in the 80s, but dozens of random strangers looking for someone called ‘Ron Stark’. I debated about putting this on the blog but it's a weird one, so here goes.

Who is this Ron Stark? This is the question burning my brain for the past year and a half now, which of course has nothing to do with Game of Thrones.

Robb Stark
Initial calls received were asking to speak to the President. My answer to this question was naturally ‘Who’? The response to which came as ‘Ron Stark’. ‘There’s no Ron Stark here I’m afraid, you have the wrong number.’

After a weekly barrage of calls about fishing, lakes and ponds, it became apparent that Ron is the President of a local angling club. So, to the Internet it was, in search of a contact number.

High strangeness with the name Stark. On searching the Internet it was immediately apparent as I found quite a few Starks, but not many locally, except for one Ron… He is mentioned on the club web page, along with his e-mail address that doesn’t exist anymore, and my phone number. Yes, my telephone number.
Ron Stark Film Producer
I signed the guest book with a note to Ron to please change his number, but nothing happened. I located the number of the Secretary of the club and asked him to kindly contact Ron. He said he would, but only had one telephone number for him. It was my number. How can this be I asked. Well, Ron apparently contacts everyone himself. Rather inconvenient for me.

Back to Ron’s web page in search of further clues. Nothing really to be found. However, there are results of the angling competition, and after locating another member of the club who has a mobile, I try again. The phone number is not recognised. This is going nowhere fast.
Tony Stark 
There are all sorts of Starks around, there’s Tony Stark of Iron Man fame, but he’s fictional. There’s Ron Stark, actor and film producer. Oh, and there’s that other elusive Ron Stark… of LSD infamy… Ronald H Stark. The Recluse, on his blog ‘VISUP’ has this to say about him…

Easily one of the most enigmatic figues in the murky history of LSD is a man commonly known as Ronald H Stark. Allegedly born as Ronald Shitsky in New York in 1938, Stark became the key figure in the illicit LSD trade by 1969 and would remain a force throughout the 70s. 

While he was famously involved in the notorious ‘hippie mafia’, known as The Brotherhood of Eternal Love, as well as lesser known, but even more prolific British outfit dubbed the ‘Microdot Gang’, Stark’s involvement in the manufacturing of LSD began prior to his association with the Brotherhood in 69.
Ron H Stark?
In these activities, as well as his involvement in international drug trafficking, and revolutionary leftist politics, that have fascinated conspiracy theorists, is but a part of this tangled story…an aspect of his career rarely examined at length is his ties to what is commonly referred to as ‘Operation Gladio’.

For further fascinating reading on this Stark fellow, see links below. Apparently he was reported as deceased in Italy in 1982, of a heart attack. No evidence or body recovered, just a mention in the media. The ‘Mandala’ is even found in reference to LSD in research about him… strange Syncs indeed!

Eighteen months down the road, people are still calling me looking for Ron Stark. I have resorted to telling them sadly, Ron has passed away! They naturally express their condolences. What else can I do? Hopefully word will somehow get around.

The Mandalay Effect... updated... Victim says Multiple Shooters!



I've brought this update to the top of the blog post as there is so much information out there right now, not really wanting to have to re-read everything we already know!

Las Vegas gunshot victim believes there were multiple shooters due to the fact that he and other witnesses experienced..."running from the initial direction of gunfire, but bullets rained down horizontally!"

Link here...

Against the clock, this may be one of my fastest posts to date. Synchronicity at an all time high with this one.

Here in the UK it's been constant talk of Mandalay for the past three days, attributed mainly to that bumbling aristocratic political ass known as Boris Johnson. The essence of 'Mandalay' has also been permeating the news headlines in the UK due to the latest Burmese (Rohingya) refugee crisis.

The supposed 'lone-wolf' shooter retiree (64 years old) use to work for Lockheed as an accountant... this is what they are telling us. However, he must have trained in the military or something...right?

Then you have the numbers, all very synchromystic and masonic! Not forgetting the location and the wordplay.  Strange indeed.

UPDATE: Here is the one and only video of what appears to be an unarmed security guard in yellow. He's lifting his right-side arm and pointing something into the crowds... IS this the shooter IN the fairground? 

Even stranger still... reports of a woman harassing people at the concert, telling them they're going to die, 45 minutes before the shooting

Twitter member Brian Richmond today posted a video he found from Facebook (source Anon) which shows an active shooter inside the crowd in the fairground, in line with first dispatch call of "shooter IN the fairground"....

It's the ONLY video of an active shooter on the ground, and not uploaded to Youtube yet! As mentioned, his source is not known. There are several videos around with witnesses saying it was a multi-shooter incident...but no video until today.

WARNING: This is the full un-edited version... conclusion may change after viewing...use discretion!

This video below is the extended version of the 'Taxi Driver' account of the shooting, with full-on automatic fire sound from right outside of the Mandalay...
There are a couple of videos of the Mandalay Hotel where flashes of gunfire appear to be emnating from lower floors and not the two windows of the rooms on floor 32

This video is from the Bellagio Hotel and is less dramatic.

According to the mainstream, all this speculation is just conspiracy theory... so here's a link to a much berated further questioning of the narrative..

Some further good analysis of what occurred over at American Everyman blog 

Journo Jon Rappoport has a nice breakdown of the numbers when it comes to the actual live firing of the guns. Seems to prove that its impossible for ONE MAN to have done all that shooting AND hit his 500+ targets! 

Curious syncs with Burma-Myanmar - The Lockheed P-38 achieved its first flight on January 27, 1939, with over ten thousand aircraft being built before the end of World War II. As a long range escort fighter, the Lightning saw action in all theaters and extensive use in the Pacific and China-Burma-India theaters.

Boris in Burma naturally takes us to the heart...

The Mandala Effect... my most esoteric post yet!

Hurricane Irma mandala
Forget about the Mandela Effect… it’s time to talk Mandalas.

I’ve been contemplating the madness of the world lately, or rather the perceived madness that we are all currently experiencing from our cultural-social surroundings.

It’s a cliché, but sometimes it really does feel like we’re living in a parallel universe.

This is the universe we’re not meant to be in perhaps. The alternate time-line that we’ve fallen into, the one where Donald Trump is President of the United States, George Michael is dead, a re-animated Nazi party holds 90 seats of power in the German Bundestag Parliament, and Prince Harry is about to marry a black American divorcee Hollywood actress, just as CNN talks possible Korean Nuclear War.

When I returned to my home town back in 2012, just before that previous failed apocalypse, so sweetly predicted by all new-age lovers for 21st December, and grossly depicted in the movie of the same name with John Cusack.  I felt as if I was living 24/7 in a trance state. This went on for about two months until eventually it wore off, like that Sunday afternoon post-hangover daze.

The feeling of being misplaced was difficult to describe, an eerie feeling of not quite fitting in, not quite feeling my feet on the ground.

I’d returned to familiar surroundings, which hadn’t changed in 18 years, although there was something different. There were new structures, and new faces, mingling with the old ones. However, things still appeared to have been mostly trapped in some kind of time-warp. Everything instantly recognisable, yet at the same time, subtly altered.

Is this a sort of time-shift? The Mandala Effect in action? or is it The Mandela Effect?

Time featuring a lot lately in everything I see, hear, or do. The message is everywhere, the passage of time, time is of the essence, no time like the present, and so on go the idioms. Again, feeling like Marty, trapped in the wrong place and the wrong time, desperately trying to find a way back to the place I came from.

Forced to look within to understand the why of things, the ‘How did I get here?’, and the ‘What have I done?’. A sad realisation crashes in. There’s no going back, there’s no time machine to magically transport you back to the place where it all began. Time travel, after all, is only theoretically possible, and then again, only in one direction!

Should I be looking without or within? Eso – the Greek definition, meaning very basically ‘within’ or ‘inside’, as opposed to Exo. Words I hear all the time from my Greek kin.

Can I make sense of these strange ideas that have suddenly popped into my brain? Is this some sort of NLP derived from watching too much UK reality TV?

I need to go deeper…

The Mandela Effect - "There's a guy works down the chip shop, swears he's Elvis..."

The Mandela Effect, it’s freaking me out. Seriously freaking me out. I have to thank that other synchro blogger for revealing this strange anomaly in the space-time continuum. Something that completely passed me by until now.

I first became aware of widely recognised ‘False Memory Syndrome’ back in the 80s when I use to read tons of books and articles about UFOs, the paranormal, and occult.

I once foolishly completed a survey about false memories and their possible link with the abductee phenomenon, only to be contacted by some shady group with headquarters in the middle of a Wiltshire village who wanted me to come along and see what they ‘do’ there!

A false memory is the psychological phenomenon wherein a person recalls something that did not happen. False memory is often considered in legal cases regarding childhood sexual abuse

Putting aside my misguided youth for a moment, I recall many events from the 1980s which still, to this day, I believe to be true. My experience of this suddenly in vogue paranormal ‘syndrome’ dubbed ‘The Mandela Effect’ can be demonstrated with two (what I thought were well-known) stories. Stories which have reappeared in my consciousness. They’ve been triggered by the recent media ‘celebration’ of the 20th Anniversary of the death of Diana, Princess of Wales.
Diana's supposed last photo
Firstly, for those who maybe unfamiliar with ‘the Mandela effect’ here is a brief explanation by that other paragon of virtuous half-truths Wikipedia…

In 2010 this phenomenon of collective false memory was dubbed the "Mandela Effect" by self-described "paranormal consultant" Fiona Broome, in reference to a false memory she reports, of the death of South African leader Nelson Mandela in the 1980s (rather than in 2013 when he actually died), which she claims is shared by "perhaps thousands" of other people. Broome has speculated about alternate realities as an explanation, but most commentators suggest that these are instead examples of false memories shaped by similar factors affecting multiple people, such as social reinforcement of incorrect memories, or false news reports and misleading photographs influencing the formation of memories based on them.

I know that the Mandela Effect is real because of these two striking memories that myself and entire family remember as happening. Even though we are now told by the media that we have falsely remembered them.

One is the sad passing of Kirsty MacColl from Cancer before 2000, the other, the untimely death by drug overdose of Boy George’s old musical friend Marilyn.

The fact that we are now being told that this is not how they died, and actually Marilyn is still alive, comes as a sort of mindfuck. A bit like the 2010 movie Inception, starring Leonardo, where you think you know exactly what you know, only to be told (and shown) that what you believe is totally false!

Now this is what the Mandela Effect purports to be. How it works is a whole other story. Recently, after being so freaked out by the revelation that this condition even has a name, then finding out that thousands are suffering and believing it to be some kind of parallel universe or time shift occurrence that nobody noticed. Well, I’m far from believing this.

I have a more terrestrial view of this ‘syndrome’. After discussing with family the fact that Kirsty MacColl died in a crazy boating accident that could well have been murder (another mystery) and that Marilyn is alive and kicking, but no longer in heels, I’ve come to the controversial conclusion that Shock! Horror! The media has been lying to us. Lying to us all along and literally changing history for its own sick agenda, bit by tiny bit, over the years. Seriously, this is the only rational explanation. Knowing that most ordinary people get their information directly from the TV and Print/IT media, it is not a difficult leap.

Everything we know, that hasn’t been handed down to us by word of mouth, has been delivered to us by some form of media.

Now, there are a lot of people out there investigating The Mandela Effect and purporting to be able to prove a time-shift or parallel universe conundrum. I’ll say it again, everything we know has been told to us by someone else in the media. Therefore, you cannot rely on it fully.

So prolific has this Mandela Effect become that they are even making a movie about it, due for release in 2018.

I know that the Mandela Effect cannot be because we’ve crossed over into a parallel universe or that some time-traveller went back to 1984 and changed something. There are people out there right now that believe this; they even believe the earth is flat and that we’re living under a dome. I digress. We have misremembered things…things that aren’t really important in our own lives at all. They are things generated by the media. The collective unconscious has taken these memories and jumbled them about a bit with a little help from that media. The question we should be asking is why?

I have a third memory, which is a vivid memory from my childhood which I mentioned before when discussing false memory syndrome. It’s the Wizard of Oz story, the very end, where Dorothy is back in her black & white bed. I recall her open the bed covers to reveal the fact that she was still wearing the ruby red slippers and so therefore Oz was not a dream but real afteral…but we all know this is not what happens at the end of this movie.

I am simply remembering what I ‘thought’ was going to happen at the time, and not what I eventually saw or experienced. The memory stored was my ‘thought at the time’, NOT the reality.

I think there is a clue in there somewhere to explain the strange workings of the mind and memory.

Commercial logos for Fruit Loops versus Froot Loops really means nothing in the scheme of things. As advertising agencies and artists change, companies change, and people make mistakes and don’t notice the small things until they are pointed out to them.

When it comes to someone actually dying though, it’s a different story. I believe the Mandela Effect is very real. What causes it is still a mystery. It’s like that conspiracy theory about Elvis still being alive out there somewhere, living it up with the other Marilyn. No one of sound mind believes that to be true…then again…

WESTALL 1966… The Real UFOs or Just Synchronicity?

I stumbled upon this Westall (Clayton) UFO incident while trying to kill my insomnia, by binge watching the Sci-fi channel at 3.00am.

This story is another strange one, with the usual unexplained intrigues and sinister elements. There are links with secret experiments, government cover-ups, nuclear black projects, aviation secrets, and infamous ‘men-in-black’ (or this case blue).

Why don’t we know more about the Westall UFO sighting of 1966? This is the niggling question about one of Australia’s most vivid close encounters. With over two hundred witnesses, quite a few still living, media involvement, government and military involvement, we hear relatively nothing about it. Barely a word in the annuals of Ufology, for years, why?
Roswell eat your heart out!
Wikipedia gives a slightly inaccurate summary of the event: The Westall UFO encounter is an event that occurred on 6 April 1966 in Clayton, Victoria, Australia.

Around 11:00 am, for about 20 minutes, more than 200 students and teachers at two Victorian state schools allegedly witnessed an unexplained flying object which descended into a nearby open wild grass field. The paddock was adjacent to a grove of pine trees in an area known as The Grange (now a nature reserve). According to reports, the object then ascended in a north-westerly direction over the suburb of Clayton South, Victoria, Australia

Below is a ‘must watch’ documentary, in four parts, giving a compelling account of what happened back in 1966. Naturally, answers to the mystery remain elusive.

Interestingly, there are some fascinating synchronistic elements to this.  For example, the Australian Synchrotron. It’s is a 3 GeV national synchrotron radiation facility located in the very same place, Clayton, in the south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria, which opened in 2007
Synchrotron nears completion
The Australian Synchrotron is a light source facility (in contrast to a collider), which uses particle accelerators to produce a beam of high energy electrons that are boosted to nearly the speed of light and directed into a storage ring where they circulate for many hours. As the path of these electrons is deflected in the storage ring, by either bending magnets or insertion devices, they emit synchrotron light. The light is channelled to experimental endstations containing specialised equipment, enabling a range of research applications including high resolution imagery that is not possible under normal laboratory conditions.

On April 5th 1966…The first Congressional hearing about unidentified flying objects (UFOs) was convened in Washington, before the House Armed Services Committee, chaired by U.S. Representative L. Mendel Rivers of South Carolina. The request for the Congressional investigation had been made by House Republican leader (and future U.S. President) Gerald R. Ford of Michigan.

On April 7th 1966… After an 80-day operation, the United States finally recovered the hydrogen bomb that had been lost off of the coast of Spain in the Mediterranean Sea. After being raised from the sea by a winch, the bomb was loaded onto the rescue ship USS Petrel and shipped back to the United States!

On April 8th 1966… NASA launched its first Orbiting Astronomical Observatory, OAO-1, with detection instruments that would measure stellar ultraviolet radiation without the interference that ground-based telescopes faced on Earth. Unfortunately, the spacecraft's batteries were depleted two days after the launch, after a high-voltage arc when powering up the trackers.

Some people have come up with the usual suspects of weather balloons, and government nuclear secrets, or black projects. It could be, but then again who really knows?

Clayton Ravine!
