On Sunday, December 14th, Dr. Michio Kaku explained to Andre Lapiere; that there are only eleven dimensions. Now, according to Dr. Kaku, there can only be eleven dimensions because, in their theory of a dimension; if you were to calculate a thirteen or fifteen dimensional universe, it would become unstable and eventually break down to an eleven dimensional universe. Dr. Kaku goes on to explain that there are also subatomic particles that are similar to a vibrating string on a musical instrument and that these strings vibrate at different notes, resonating throughout all eleven dimensions.

MUFON, According to Antonio Paris:
In late November, Director – and founder – of API (Aerial Phenomenon Investigation team) Antonio Paris pointed out that every year hundreds of thousands of UFO reports and alleged abductions flood the internet and social media outlets; organizations such as MUFON (the Mutual UFO Network) and NUFORC (National UFO Reporting Center) which entertain the UFO community with reports that thousands of UFOs are being documented each month. According to Antonio, if only one percent of these sightings were reliable and/or credible then it would appear that – at the very least – thousands of extraterrestrials are visiting planet Earth every month; “which is simply not the case”, Antonio exclaims.
Although this may seem a bit harsh, Antonio actually conducted his own comprehensive analysis of approximately 10,000 sightings reported to MUFON. His analysis concluded that the vast majority of these sightings were reported by the average person rather than by professional or amateur astronomers, who are trained in examining and spending inordinate amounts of time observing the sky. Antonio also goes on to point out that more than eighty-five percent of MUFON reports were incomplete – containing inaccurate and ambiguous information – and were not properly vetted under a systematic control system, ergo something like the scientific method, or equivalent.
Now, I will point out that MUFON is grossly understaffed for the amount of reports they receive, which makes it impossible for them to investigate all the reports. I will also point out that MUFON usually posts their reports verbatim, as it was submitted by the eyewitness. This kind of operation allows MUFON’s readers to review submissions without the possibility of diluting the content – by an investigator’s differing vocabulary or opinion – thus preventing the probability of filtering an eye witness’s account all together.
“From time to time a handful of pilots, military personnel, and police officers did report seeing a UFO. The credibility of these witnesses was taken for granted because of their official titles and/or positions. Unfortunately, however, such reports are too often sensationalized to imply that, because there are no logical explanations for what the officials observed, it must have been an extraterrestrial spacecraft. Regardless of these witnesses’ positions, their reliability can only be established once a thorough Personal Credibility Assessment Investigation on them is completed, which my research found to be rarely conducted”, Antonio continued.
I agree with Antonio on a couple of points here. In the realm of UFO investigations, when the eye witness retains a high position of respect or authoritative influence, an investigator often fails to ask probing questions about a sighting’s authenticity or the state of the witness’s mental faculties. I understand the influence of an authoritative figure, such as a general, may have on an individual; however, there is still the possibility for error in the witness’s account or the possibility for mental illness, but a very low possibility.
On another note, sensationalism is always going to be an obstacle in the field of UFO phenomena, but I have never seen that from MUFON, to my knowledge. Upon my personal observation of MUFON – as a whole – I find that they tend to submit their cases without embellishment or sentiment; Although, I only agree with that method if it does not influence the outcome of a statistical data analysis, which it does.
I have a high respect for both, MUFON and API, but I think the two organizations are simply incompatible; as both have differing goals and opposing ideologies in regards to UFO origins, ergo materialistic science verses paranormal phenomena.

There is an ominous resonance brewing in the skies of Apparently there have been many reports of mysterious cracking or booming sounds, which have been said to sound similar to fireworks or muffled gunshots. These strange noises have been occurring up and down the Atlantic coasts of the United States and certain parts of the UK ever since the beginning of April and have even woken residents in the middle of their slumber. Some complaints even go as far as to report that the noises are accompanied by the sound of their windows rattling. Have you heard the dull booming sounds that are currently plaguing the Atlantic coasts? What are these explosions, which are interrupting the resonant sanctity of these mellow shores and where are they coming from?
One of the more popular theories circulating the web is that these sounds are being caused by a top-secret triangular aircraft that has been in development since 1989 by the US government, named Aurora. According to some theorists, these spy planes have the ability to reach a whopping Mach 11. However, these speculations were brought about by the mysterious Pentagon budget in 1985 and further expounded upon by a triangular aircraft sighting by a North sea oil engineer in August 1989, all of which were rumors of a new aircraft that were spread by Aviation Week and Space Technology magazine. Their original entry stated that $445 million was attributed to 'black aircraft production' which was under the name Aurora, as a project for the development of multiple stealth aircraft designs rather than the name of a single craft.
Well, according to the Dailymail, these sounds are most likely caused by a newer jet with 'pulse detonation engine' technology. Which points us to the SR-72 spy plane, a plane designed to reach speeds of Mach 6 and comes fully equipped with the pulse detonation engine technology. From the depiction of this new type of engine, it appears as though the engine fires multiple times, rather than a constant blast of flame. This new information could very well explain the sounds people have been hearing over the coasts, but only time will tell. What do you think it could be?

On August 1st, 1978 at 10:37 PM in Yukon, Oklahoma, Six members of REACT 1 2(Radio Emergency Associated Communications Team) encountered a flying saucer that landed out in the middle of a remote field. One of the witnesses reported the saucer as being 100 feet to 150 feet across and about 15 feet high. The entire craft pulsed with light, while the top of the craft gave off a blue illumination in the shape of a V.
They saw the strange craft settle on the golden waves of grain that cool night and the creature that stepped out stayed crisp in their memories for decades after that. The bipedal humanoid stepped upon the Yukon soil – from what appeared to be the only opening on the ship – and calmly walked off into the field, which was now shrouded by the complete darkness that had descended on the land. Then the mysterious craft left just as swiftly and silently as it had come, leaving behind the alien occupant stranded here on Earth.
The REACT group described the creature as having long, skinny arms and legs with a large head – the only description that would come from seeing a silhouette of the strange creature. By observation, creature stood about 4 ½ to 5 feet tall and weighed roughly 75 to 80 pounds with longer than normal extremities. There had been no other reports of seeing a creature in the area after that, but the REACT group admitted that they had no desire to return to the area, as all of them were spooked by the incident.
Funnily enough, the radar operators at Tinker AFB confirmed the sighting from radar images that they picked up that very night, though the majority of them wrote the incident off as a simple “false echo”. The radar showed blips from the same location that REACT members reported their sighting and around the same time, but of course nothing became of this and everyone continued with their daily lives – lives that cannot envelop the possibility of extraterrestrials into their, then current, ideologies.
It is truly a shame that the paradigm of certain individuals and/or groups do not allow for the possibility of phenomenal activity into their view of the world. Thus these cases will never be investigated in any depth if the minds of a higher command [i.e. government agencies or high ranking officials] continue to operate with a zero tolerance policy on the unexplained.

If you've never heard of the Abominable Snowman (or Yeti) before, it's essentially the Bigfoot of the Himalayas with hair as white as the driven snow. Throughout the decades, and even longer, there have been reported sightings of this creature around the snowy parts of Europe and Asia. In Tibet, the term Yeti means "magical creature".
While this may seem like a strange concept, consider the most likely place an undiscovered creature of this nature would roam and prosper. You guessed it! -the furthest from human society that it can possibly reach. If there is an undiscovered bipedal primate roaming our lands, I would guess that it is probably in a location where the human population density is closest to zero ergo the Himalayas, Siberia and other colder regions. Mainly, where it becomes difficult for the human species to sustain life because - let's face it - when it comes to the wellbeing of animals, we're kind of dicks and if these bipedal primates are more intelligent than the common animal then I would say that they're probably smart enough to avoid us.
Anyway, why would I bring this topic up? Well, tis the season and there have been a couple of sightings, including a man - by the name of Gerry Moffatt - who is on the search for the elusive creature in the Himalayas and is currently being filmed by a National Geographic team. In this documentary series, Gerry intends to separate fact from fiction on his crusade to prove the existence of this elusive primate. During one of the episodes, Gerry even stumbles upon a Buddhist monastery who claims to have a Yeti scalp in their possession.
After night one of their search, Gerry describes how truly difficult it was to trudge through the unforgiving terrain and climate of the Machermo valley in the Himalayas. Plus, they didn't find the Yeti. So, the search continues...

In other Yeti news, apparently there was an Abominable Snowman spotted riding the subway in Toronto, Canada on Tuesday morning!
It seems that a Canadian jokester became fed up with Toronto's chilling -9°C temperature, so he dressed up in a Yeti suit and road the fine rails of the subway to his destination. According to CP24, fellow riders were laughing and taking pictures with the man, saying that it definitely made their ride more enjoyable. So, keep your eyes pealed! You may be the next eye witness of a Yeti enjoying the fine pages of Dale Carnegie.
