Getting off my train.. from somewhere out there

After life communication

There is a really interesting documentary on VIMEO I watched called CALLING EARTH.. it’s a rough cut documentary about after death communication with the living.. And it’s worth a watch.

A few takeaway points that I had after seeing it:

  • It often seems that recordings of the dead appear to be recorded in some way.. For example, this documentary opens up to a woman hearing her dead daughter on a recording disciplining her dog—the girl was dead at the time it was recorded. Could it be that history just plays back over and over again in some way? that we are just … a movie or hologram that exists on a continuous loop?

  • The chilling idea of a dead person calling me and leaving a message on a voice mail is down right creepy. But … often times those who report it are overjoyed by the impact it has.. That ‘one last time’ to hear a voice of a deceased loved one..

  • If the dead are experienced using communication devices, why haven’t they mastered Facebook yet? Think of it: How many times have friends and family died, but their Facebook pages live on.. and in doing so, people continue to grieve, post messages and stories of the person’s life, and say how much they miss them. What if, one day, the dead find a way to communicate back? To “like” a post or even more, to respond?  The future is now.. so why haven’t the dead learned to use this one yet? Maybe the ‘get off my train guy’ from GHOST doesn’t have a computer …

And finally…when do we die anyway? We used to do the ole’ feather trick. Then we moved on to when the heart stopped.. now we are at a point where when the brain stops we believe someone is dead—believe. But with each modern discovery, it seems more and more likely that death will continue to be kicked further down the road..

Most scientists don’t believe in an afterlife—but some are beginning to wonder.. question.. And study.

Old paranormal fields that were confined to embarrassed circles of people hiding their investigations are now beginning to see the light of day, and the analysis of science.

Sometimes EVPs are simply what you think you’re hearing.. you may be so desperate for a message that you hear a muffled sound and suddenly think it’s your loved one saying hi from the netherworld. However, some EVPs are without a doubt filled with clear-cut audio that is simple and unforgivingly real.

Even if it’s not real.. it’s real to the person who heard what they heard…

Give the documentary a whirl during your spare moments in life. It may answer questions, bring closure, but even better: Make you wonder, ponder, think and quake at the prospects that there’s something far greater than an monumental accident leading to the creation of matter and all that matters.




STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..

Before discussion.. take a glance:

My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…


Yes, indeed.. a hurricane-ish type storm is about to hit Ireland..

Hurricane Ophelia is the 10th consecutive hurricane to form in the Atlantic basin this year. According to University of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy, the last time ten consecutive storms became a hurricane was 1893. While a very interesting factoid, the "elephant in the room" is that Ophelia is headed to Ireland. It is rare, but not unprecedented.

There are a few interesting things about this.. First off, there have been really rare occasions that storms of this nature made it as far as Ophelia may..

Actually there have been only a handful in the past years since about, oh, 1851..

From 1851 to 2010, only 10 extratropical storms, typically the tail ends of tropical cyclones, have hit within 200 miles (322 kilometers) of Ireland....Hurricane Debbie was the only tropical hurricane to make landfall in that area, clipping the far northwest of the British Isles in 1961.

But this is 2017--the year that mayhem on …
