Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Sac UFO Con & Summit:

On June 16th and 17th -- just two weekends ago -- I attended the SACUFOCON and Paranormal Summit, hosted by Strange Lights Publishing, held at the Crown Plaza Hotel near Madison Avenue and I-80.

That may explain why I lagged behind in my posting. I was otherwise, so to speak, occupado.

Though I've not much written about the topic, I believe that We Are Not Alone in the universe.

For those who've not considered the issue, I posit: the universe is wide and ever-expanding. It exists in infinity. Most if not all of us have a difficult if not impossible time grasping the meaning of the word itself: infinity.

Because there is not a Great Expanse and suddenly -- a brick wall. If so: then what exists beyond that so-called brick wall?

I also believe that there is much in this world (and perhaps others) that defies description and remains unexplained.

As a result, I cannot denigrate those who attempt to seek answers to many questions posed on any number of levels, ranging from theocratic to scientific.

And all points in between.

My wife has always been more receptive to these thoughts and ideas than me. With this weekend having passed, I find myself asking more questions than I have easy answers.

At this summit, I was provided with a wide range of differing thoughts and philosophies and suggestions and suppositions.

It was up to the individual to draw their own conclusions or -- more importantly -- to begin their own exciting adventures into potential personal investigations.


Admit it. We don't talk about many of the strange things we've seen or experienced in our lives. Because we don't want people to think we're unhinged. We keep some of our experiences very close to our personal vests. Sometimes it's best to classify those things as "adjunct" and just move on.

But I'll bet this: each and every one of us have encountered events in our lives that we couldn't explain and that we didn't or won't reveal. Because we cannot readily explain them.

Count me there.

My wife, however, is the proverbial Open Book. She not only believes but, in a way, welcomes.

Me? Admittedly, not so much.

Until I was in San Diego at my brother's home in Coronado in the very late 80s. At night, I watched a series of lights, mostly to the southwest, with my naked eye, moving together in a group. The problem as discerned was this: they did not move in any kind of a ballistic motion. They moved in a very staccato fashion and at 90-degree angles within a few seconds. At quite some distance. Rapidly. Then they split and disappeared in an outward radial movement.

This was in the mid-80s.

I kept this in my brain Tickler File.

Fast forward to Now.

We Are Not Alone. I am convinced of this, absolutely, positively.

My wife and I met a number of persons from this summit, but we somehow gravitated towards Jeffrey Gonzalez of the Sanger Paranormal Society. He sat with us at breakfast and regaled many tales at our table.

The predominant bulk of the speakers and hosts coagulated only upon themselves at other tables. Mr Gonzalez sat squarely at a table consisting of a series of "unknowns." And he impressed me with that.

And, whilst listening to the Sunday 7pm streaming video of the SPS wherein Mr Gonzalez interviewed Kerry Cassidy, I chanced to meet Allen -- the astute and knowledgeable TechnoGuy with PSP.

We exchanged some personal histories.

Please check out the photos above: Jeffrey's website and the Sanger Paranormal Society. He exists in Fresno, and this was my wife's hometown.

I should care to suggest: the SPS hosts a LIVE streaming event every Sunday at 7 pm.

Thanks to Jeffrey and Allen, we can all find ourselves on the cusp of cutting-edge paranormal activity and techno information week-to-week.



A Case In Summary, to Anthony Sanchez in re the First Paranormal Summit:

- The Crown Plaza Motel was a brilliant choice; every -- and I mean EVERY -- employee I encountered was kind, courteous, solicitous. The rooms they provided were appropriate and clean. When the outside temperatures reached 108-degrees, their auditorium -- for YOU -- kicked down to 70 degrees. That's a MAJOR concession to your audience. I have nothing but good to say about the Crown Plaza and its employees!

I however, suggest:

  • - Remove the side tables on the dais. Those tables weren't used until the final panels. They kept people from having a clear view of the speakers and screen.
  • - Play your PPTs and videos prior to their revelation. Ensure your technology works.
  • - If you have people who pay $200 per ticket --like me and my wife -- then I might suggest your speakers and hosts spread themselves around the tables for the VIP/Level III dinner. I understand that your speakers and hosts feel more comfortable around themselves, but it would have been enjoyable to meet more of the featured personalities.

On that vein, I thank Mel Febregas for keeping the Summit on track. Much appreciated.

To Anthony Sanchez: your first attempt was quite impressive.

You could make it even more impressive next year.

It's all about scheduling and organization and techno realization.

Circa 1972. Westbound from Sage, WY on Highway 89, dark, but clear, night. A shape, reflecting no light, went from North to South across the road about one mile ahead of me.

The ground there is fairly flat, with the Wasatch Mountains on the other side, putting the object in silhouette.

This thing was the size of an aircraft carrier but had no sharp edges or discernible shape.

Nothing weird happened to my vehicle or me but the experience is still clear 40 years later.

Okay, as a Trekkie, I had to embrace the fact that this vast universe has to have other life forms, period.

If you think about it, it is rather arrogant to thing that Earth is the only planet in a universe that goes on for all eternity it is endless, so yeah, there has to be other life.

And I know for fact that in 1996 I saw something in the sky that was not a plane, a weather balloon or some new plane from the Air Force. What I saw was a very bright, silver-light colored "thing" that was shaped almost like a rectangle.

I sat there watching it just hovering for the longest time and then in a split second made a sharp angle up or turn and it was gone in a flash.

No, I honestly believe we are not alone.

I have shared my story and not ashamed of it. And glad to know I am not the only one who has seen these strange looking vessels in the sky.
