#93 Hudson Valley Anomalies with WHAM

WHAM

This is Dr. C. S. Matthews, a.k.a. Wahabah Hadia Al Muid, a.k.a. Professor WHAM author of the book Mysterious Beauty: Living With the Paranormal in The Hudson Valley.

On October 1, 2019, Fahrusha was pleased to speak with Dr. C. S. Matthews about her exciting new book Mysterious Beauty: Living With the Paranormal in The Hudson Valley. She is the sometimes co-host of the podcast “The Church of Mabus” and teaches at a college in the Hudson Valley.

Our fascinating discussion covered a lot of ground, from the geology of the region to Native American beliefs and history through the Dutch and British settlers to the present time. In reading the book, Fahrusha was horrified to discover that she was born on or near the site of a massacre of Native Americans by some renegade Dutch in what is now Jersey City!

What is very wonderful about this book is that it gives people living in the Hudson Valley from Manhattan to above Albany (and those curious and intrepid travellers from points unknown) a tool to begin their quest for the anomalous right here in our backyard. Everything from ancient earthworks, to present day cryptids and UFOs can be found in the glorious Hudson Valley, along with the world’s best apples.

This episode is a natural follow on to our last episode with Susan Demeter St. Clair in which we touched upon some of the same subjects involving the Great Lakes region of Canada and N.Y. State.

“Shattered Reality Podcast” wishes to acknowledge sometimes contributor Stephanie Quick for introducing us to Professor WHAM.

We appreciate hearing about our listeners’ anomalous accounts. If you wish to be included in the “Listeners’ Corner” either as an on-air guest or would like to have your written account read, please contact fahrusha@fahrusha.com.

On September 17, 2019 Susan Demeter St.Clair joined Fahrusha on “Shattered Reality Podcast” to speak about UFOs and the folklore of the strange. Susan is a native of Ontario, Canada who is currently residing in Northern Italy. She is a researcher on the UFO phenomena and on European and Native American paranormal folklore especially the Italian Benandanti. The Benandanti were from the Friuli region of Italy of north eastern Italy, although it is thought that the tradition was probably very widespread in slightly varying forms in much of agrarian, Pre-Christian Europe. Meaning literally “the good walkers”, members participated in out of body travels on a number of Thursdays to war against evil forces that might destroy crops. They were also healers. They were viciously persecuted as heretics by the Roman Inquisition.

Varying possible explanations for UFOs and for the famous Philip Experiment (Canada) were discussed. Our interview with Dr. Jim McClenon also mentions the Philip Experiment in the context of the SORRAT Group. Susan was kind enough to share with us her personal UFO experiences that changed the course of her life.

Towards the end of the episode, Fahrusha read an amazing account from a longtime listener who had a life changing UFO experience in western New York State. The listener requested to remain anonymous, something that we at “Shattered Reality Podcast will always respect. If you, dear listener, have a paranormal experience, be it a UFO, a near death experience, an out of body experience, a cryptid encounter or other high strange unexplainable phenomenon, we want to hear from you!

Please contact Fahrusha at fahrusha@fahrusha.com if you would like to share a high strange experience with us.

#89 Dan Farcas: Hypercivilizations

Dan Farcas is author of Hypercivilizations

Dan Farcas, PhD, author of Hypercivilizations: An Answer to ET Contacts on Earth

Click HERE to listen.

On June 18, 2019 Fahrusha welcomed Romanian scientist and author Dan Farcas, PhD to “Shattered Reality Podcast”. We discussed his latest book, Hypercivilizations: An Answer to ET Contacts on Earth. The approach of the book is a synthesis of many years of thought and study in various allied areas of scientific analysis as regards possible extraterrestrial civilizations. His conclusions are well researched and I recommend that listeners take the time to understand what is being said.

Additionally we discussed artificial intelligence, tall blonde humanoids and the importance of love (in the sense of agape) and good will. He asserts that alien intelligence may be billions of years beyond us and must be benevolent. There are 11 chapters in the book, any of which could yield an hour long discussion for “Shattered Reality Podcast”.

Our Listeners’ Corner featured Christopher Rex speaking about a powerful near death experience (NDE) he had as a teenager in New Braunfels, Texas. He was swimming in a dangerous location with friends and drowned. Listeners will find this account quite compelling.

We invite our listeners to submit their experiences to: fahrusha@fahrusha.com for possible inclusion on a future episode.

#85 Owls, UFOs and Synchronicity

Owls and their relationship to UFOs and synchronicity are the subjects of Mike Clelland’s work.

On March 12, 2019 Fahrusha welcomed Mike Clelland, an avid outdoorsman, illustrator and UFO researcher, to “Shattered Reality Podcast”. He has written extensively on the subject of owls, UFOs, and synchronicity. This episode was particularly conversational, with Fahrusha contributing some of her experiences to the mix. The short take-away from this is that people who have experiences with owls in the wild often also have UFO experiences and many of them may be abductees as well. Some folks see owls that are impossibly big to be flesh and blood owls. Under hypnosis these people sometimes find that what they saw were actually small grey aliens.

Though Mike’s research centers around the owl/UFO connection, Fahrusha drew parallels to other animal/UFO connections involving raccoons, cats and opossums among others. Fahrusha is a city chick, but she is a good spotter of birds and mammals in the wild. Owls have the best hearing of all birds and excellent night vision as well. Their feathers are specially equipped for silent flight. Cats and dogs also see more than the spectrum visible to humans, and may be sensitive to invisible intruders. All human companions of cats have been unnerved by the felines staring intently at something the human cannot see.

Clelland has written two books on owls and their relationship to the UFO enigma: The Messengers and Stories From the Messengers, both of which are an engaging read. He writes an interesting blog at http://hiddenexperience.blogspot.com/

#84 UFO Secrecy with Robert Salas

Robert Salas, retired USAF Captain and author.

To listen click HERE.

On February 27, 2019, Fahrusha was pleased to welcome Retired Air Force Captain Robert Salas to “Shattered Reality Podcast”. Robert is the author of two excellent books, Unidentified: The UFO Phenomenon: How World Governments Have Conspired to Conceal Humanity’s Biggest Secret and Faded Giant (co-author James Klotz).

We discussed the Oscar flight shutdown of nuclear missiles by UFOs at Malmstrom Air Force Base in 1967 where Robert Salas was stationed and where he was a missile launch officer in the underground bunker when the shutdown occurred. There was also an almost identical shutdown a week earlier on Echo flight. (Please see our interview with Robert Hastings.)

Robert has proposed that according to game theory, the forces for secrecy and those that push for disclosure are playing a zero sum game. He believes that eventually disclosure must happen. As an adherent of the extra-terrestrial hypothesis (ETH) he believes that ET is on our side, though he allows that there may be more than one kind of ET. He has had some personal experiences with “the others” and feels that his mission is to warn of the dangers of nuclear weapons. That mission is a noble one.

Recently Robert Salas has traveled to Peru with renowned musician Will Galison where he was shown some mummies of non-human creatures, he thinks may be aliens. There are a number of international scientists working on the case and we eagerly await their findings.

Note 1: Homo floresiensis, a.k.a. “the Hobbit,” was an ancient hominin that lived until at least 17,000 years ago in South East Asia on the remote Indonesian island of Flores. Some think its extinction was more recent.

Note 2: The Texas UFO flap Fahrusha referenced in regard to Angelia Joiner was the Stephenville incident.

#80 Dr. Diana Walsh-Pasulka American Cosmic

Fahrusha was pleased to welcome Dr. Diana Walsh-Pasulka author of American Cosmic: UFOs, Religion and Technology to “Shattered Reality Podcast”. Together they had a spirited conversation about the UFO enigma. They discussed some very anomalous experiences that Diana participated in, in the Southwest of the US. With two others, she found some unusual materials not believed to be manufactured on Earth.

It has become apparent that it is almost impossible to determine what events are real and what events are misreported due to a number of factors. Firstly events have always been reported according to peoples’ views on the subject and what one person sees is not necessarily what her neighbor sees. Secondly altering photographs successfully beyond detection is now possible, even by semi-professionals. Thirdly, entertainment and news are becoming mixed and intermingled, with a prevalence of docudramas that give some truth and some fiction. In the memory of viewers they perceive the fictionalized accounts as true. Finally augmented reality devices, such as “Oculus Rift” are becoming more common, allowing individuals to step into their own private worlds.

We talked about how traditional religious manifestations such as shared visions and levitation are also factors in the UFO phenomena. We spoke of the Spanish nun, Mary of Agreda who bi-located to the Dulce New Mexico area prior to the arrival of the European explorers, and the celestial manifestations at Fatima in Portugal. We agreed that many factors play a part in the different ways that people experience both UFOs and religious manifestations, especially cultural context.

Dr. Walsh-Pasulka has written and consulted on several other books including Heaven Can Wait: Purgatory in Catholic Devotional and Popular Culture.

#76 Grant Cameron UFOs and Consciousness

 

Grant Cameron, veteran UFO researcher and prolific author.

 

To listen click HERE.

Fahrusha was very pleased to welcome veteran researcher in UFOs and consciousness, Grant Cameron. Our guest is someone whose career I have been following for the past 15 years. He is a hardworking, resolute and dedicated researcher from Manitoba, Canada.

Grant began his interest in UFOs in 1975 with his observation of a recurrent UFO called “Charley RedStar” in Carman Manitoba. After that he was bitten by the UFO bug. The Kate Valentine UFO show and Viewpoints with Kate Valentine (the predecessors of “Shattered Reality Podcast”) have archived 3 shows with Grant Cameron which can be accessed at atlanticcoastufos.com by putting his name into the guest selector on the right on the main page.

He researched the work of the late Wilbert Smith who headed the Canadian UFO study Project Magnet. After that he was led to investigate Dr. Eric Walker, and Dr. Robert Sarbacher who he believed were the American keepers of the secret. Following this he founded website presidentialufo.com. He filed freedom of information requests (foia requests), researched across America at the official libraries of past presidents, finding particular interest in connection between the Clintons and the (Laurence) Rockefeller UFO Initiative.

More recently he had what he called a download from a non-human source about the connectedness of everything, the non-physical manifestation of UFOs and the primacy of consciousness.

He has researched the mystery surrounding To The Stars Academy and ATTIP, Bob Bigelow and the Skinwalker Ranch.

He has also written quite a number of books on these subjects including Managing Magic: The Government’s UFO Disclosure Plan and Charlie Red Star: True Reports of One of North America’s Biggest UFO Sightings.
