Bundok Ararat, aakyatin; Arko ni Noah, iimbestigahan

Marami ang hindi pa rin tiyak kung saan nga ba napadpad ang arko ni Noah nang mangyari ang matinding pagbaha noong kanyang kapanahunan nang umulan ng apatnapung araw at apatnapung gabi sa buong mundo, batay sa mga nakasaad sa Bibliya.

Bagaman, nakasaad sa Bibliya na ang Arko ni Noah ay napadpad sa bundok ng Ararat sa Silangang Turkey ay may mga nagsasabing ito ay napadpad sa ibang lugar.

Kung ano ang nakasaad sa Bibliya, dito naman nakatutok ang isang grupo ng mga dalubhasa at malakas ang kanilang kutob na sa Bundok Ararat nga napadpad ang Noah’s Ark.

Sa pamamagitan ng nakolektang satellite images sa ituktok ng Ararat, nakita dito ang itinuturing nilang isang straktura na gawa ng tao.

Ito na ang pangalawang pagkakataon na muling kinunan ng larawan ang ituktok ng bundok-Ararat sa pamamagitan ng modernong teknolohiya – ang Digital Globe Quick Bird Satellite.

Unang nakunan ng larawan ng US Air Force ang naturang bundok noong 1949, at noon ay may nakitang hugis straktura na nabalutan ng yelo at snow.

Pinigil ng pamahalaang ng Amerika na isapubliko ang naturang mga larawan sa confidential file na Ararat Anomaly at noong 1997 lamang inilabas ngunit hindi naging kumbinsido dito ang mga eksperto.

Noong tag-araw ng taong 2003 kung saan maituturing na pinakamainit na summer sa buong Europa sa nakalipas na mga taon mula 1500, natunaw lahat ng yelo at niyebe sa Bundok-Ararat at dito malinaw na nakunan ng litrato ang bundok.

Ayon kay Daniel P. McGivern, Pangulo ng Shamrock – The Trinity Corporation, ang kumpanyang matagal nang naghahanap sa Noah’s Ark sa mga nakalipas na taon sa pamamagitan ng satellite, ngayon lamang nila nasuring mabuti ang mga nakuhang litrato sa pamamagitan ng Quick Bird satellite.

Ang Quick Bird ay maituturing na may pinakamataas na resolusyon bilang commercial imaging satellite sa buong mundo, kung kaya’t mas malinaw ang nakitang straktura sa ituktok ng bundok-Ararat.

Kasunod nito, agad na bumuo ng isang grupo ng mga siyentipiko, archaelogist at forensic experts si McGivern para akyatin ang bundok at imbestigahan ang nakitang straktura doon.

Tinaya ni McGivern na magsisimula ang operasyon sa bundok Ararat sa buwan ng Agosto ng taong ito.

Kumbinsido si McGivern na talagang man-made ang strakturang nakita sa Ararat at ang gagawin nilang imbestigasyon at pagsusuri sa mga makukuhang bahagi nito ay magpapatunay kung ito nga ba ang Arko ni Noah.

Hinirang ni McGivern si Turkish Dr. Ahmet Ali Arslan, na siyang manguna bilang field manager sa naturang imbestigasyon sa bundok-Ararat.

Hindi naman matatawaran ang naging karanasa ni Dr. Arslan, dahil sa limampung beses na itong naka-akyat sa Ararat sa loob ng apatnapung taon.

Biktima ba kayo ng bangungot?

Nananatiling misteryo hanggang ngayon ang bangungot na halos karaniwang nararanasan sa panahon ng pagtulog. Lalu itong kinatatakutan ng karamihan dahil sa may mga kaso na namamatay ang mga biktima.

Marami ang mga haka-haka at paniniwala na ang bangungot ay nangyayari kapag natulog ang tao na kakakain pa lamang o kaya ay sobrang busog. Kaya nga ang sabi ng matatanda na “wag tayong matutulog kapag kakakain natin at sobrang busog baka bangungutin.”

May ibat-ibang teorya tungkol dito ang mga siyentista, mga duktor at mga mananaliksik sa larangan ng paranormal na nais alamin kung ano nga ba ang dahilan ng bangungot sa tao.

Ibat-iba ang nararanasan ng tao sa kapag binabangungot. Kalimitan nararanasan na may nakadagan sa katawan at hindi makakilos.

May mga bangungot na animo’y nakapatong at sinasakal ang biktima habang pinipilit na sumigaw ngunit walang lumalabas na boses mula sa bibig, bagaman may kasong akala ay napakalakas ng ating paghiyaw.

Ang mga kababaihan ay nakakaranas ng biglang may tumatabi sa higaan at pinipilit na ilugso ang puri o ginagahasa o di man kaya ay sinusuyo hanggang sa hindi matanggihan ang nais ng nilalang na sila ay makatalik.

Mula pa noong taong 1000 hanggang 1500 A.D. o Middle English Period ay may mga kaso ng bangungot at nanatili pa rin itong misteryo ngayon.

Kabilang sa mga teorya ay ang tinatawag na “Old Hag Syndrome” – isang uri ng bangungot na may nakadagan sa natutulog at nahihirapang makahinga na may pakiramdam na sinasakal.

Ang isa pang teorya mula sa hanay ng mga duktor at mga siyentista, ito ay “Sleep Paralysis” – ang panahon na paralisado ang buong katawan ng tao ngunit gising ang diwa nito na kung tawagin din ay Hypnogogic/Hypnopompic Paralysis.

Ito ay iniuugnay sa hypnagogic hallucinations o ang tinatawag na dream-like mentation (ang paggamit sa bahagi ng ating utak). Iniuugnay din ito sa Narcolepsy – isang neurological condition kung saan ang isang tao ay merong hindi makontrol na pagtulog.

Ang isa pang teorya ay ang posibleng kagagawan ito ng mga nilalang sa ibang dimensiyon na karaniwang tinatawag na “Incubus” – ang mga lalaking nilalang na pinipilit makipagsiping sa mga natutulog na babae, at “Succubus” naman ang tawag sa mga babaeng nilalang na dumadalaw sa pagtulog ng mga kalalakihan. Ang incubus ay halaw sa salitang latin na “incubo” na nangangahulugan ng “burden o weight”.

Para sa akin ang misteryo ng bangungot ay maaaring magkaroon ng kasagutan depende sa abot ng kaisipan ng bawat isa sa atin. Ngunit iisa lamang ang maaari kong konklusyon tungkol dito.

May basehan ang lahat ng mga teorya subalit ang pinakamahalaga sa lahat, ang tao bilang isang nilalang ay dalawamput-apat na oras na gising ang diwa at may kakayahan itong makalabas ng katawan habang tulog na karaniwang akala natin ay panaginip.

Sa aking palagay para maiwasan ang bangungot, una, ugaliin nating manalangin at wag matulog ng busog.

Pangalawa, kailangang palagi tayong mag-isip ng positibo at wag isipin ang problema bago matulog.

At pangatlo, maging mahinahon kapag binangungot, harapin natin at wag matakot, manalangin, at pilitin na lumipat sa isang magandang lugar sa panaginip.

Researchers say aliens exist

A group of U. S. researchers and scientists declared extraterrestrial life exist in some form.
In a report appeared in Arizona Daily Wildcat said more than 50 people mostly alien abductees and university professors who specialize in extraterrestrial research attended a free lecture titled “Evidence for Extraterrestrial Life?” at the University of Arizona Medical Center.

The event featured two documentaries and a question-and-answer session with two doctors who believe that extraterrestrials exist.

UA professor Gary Schwartz, director of the UA’s Human Energy systems Lab, said, “our lab works in controversial areas, but the topic is extremely controversial.”

Dr. Lynne Kitei, cardiologist from Phoenix, recounted her numerous UFO sightings and showed the audience a documentary featuring her home video of the phenomena titled “The Phoenix Lights.”

Kitei had her first UFO sighting in 1995. She was taking a bath when her husband started screaming to her from their bedroom to come see the unusual lights that were “hovering” outside the window.

Kitei described the lights as “three amber orbs, each about 3 to 6 feet in diameter, about 50 to 75 feet above us, hovering in a triangular formation.”

She took video and still photos of the lights as they “dimmed away.”

Two years later, on March 13, 1997, Kitei said a mass UFO sighting occurred in Phoenix and throughout Arizona. Up to 10,000 people saw the orbs of light that Kitei described as they waited to see the Hale-Bopp comet.

Panic ensued as people called the police departments and fire departments. No one knew what caused the unusual lights that some described as being attached to some sort of ship that was said to be more than a mile long, she said.

Kitei called Luke Air Force base and could not obtain any information. She contacted the Phoenix Sky Harbor airport, where one air traffic controller and one commercial pilot reported seeing the lights. Nothing showed up on the radar.

The mystery went unsolved until 2000, when the National Guard staged an air show to prove to the public that an Air Force maneuver was behind the mysterious “Phoenix lights.” They flew planes with flares attached to them over the city to “re-enact” the event.

But the people who had witnessed the real Phoenix lights, including Kitei, were still skeptical.
Kitei contacted Schwartz, who was reluctant to take on the subject.

“To tell you the truth, I didn’t really want to see her,” he said.
But Schwartz found Kitei’s evidence very convincing and said that she was “alarmingly sane.”
“I could not give up my intellectual integrity,” he said.

Schwartz went on to write the foreword to Kitei’s book.
Kitei also told the audience that she had a near-death experience as a child, has also had out-of-body experiences and believes she is telepathic.

The evening got more out-of-this-world as Dr. John Mack, a professor of psychiatry at Harvard University, took the stage with his documentary titled “Touched,” which chronicles his research on alien abductions.

Mack, who conducted extensive clinical analysis of supposed abductees, said he did not find any psychological disturbances that could account for their behavior.

One man said he was abducted by aliens and taken into their spacecraft, where sperm samples were taken, and he was forced to mate with an alien female.

A woman claimed to have mothered hybrid alien-human children.
Skepticism of these phenomena is widespread. Harvard conducted a 14-month investigation into Mack’s research, concerned that he was connecting Harvard with a subject controversial, according to Mack’s documentary.

But they did not take any action against Mack and ultimately allowed him to continue his research.
There are also many people who believe these phenomena are real. When Kitei asked how many people in the audience were “believers,” almost all of the people raised their hands.

Kitei said it is probable that intelligent extraterrestrial life exists.

“Our solar system is relatively young. There may be beings that are billions of years more advanced than we are. We may be looking for FM on the AM dial,” she said.

Schwartz said we as a culture need to stop denying reliable data on controversial subjects.
“Shakespeare said, ‘To be or not to be; that is the question.’ But for us, it’s, ‘To see or not to see; that is the question,” he said

Another alien abductee named Sel said in the lecture that “I just wanted to say that I am an abductee, and the experience has always been positive and exciting for me.”

Pinay reveals she was an alien abductee

There are numerous documented testimonies about alien contacts and abductions. Among them is a Filipina who revealed herself and claimed she was being abducted by aliens or extra-terrestrials.

She is Nida Reyes of Mandaluyong City. Her unforgettable experience about alien abduction happened sometime in 1999.

She had dreams about creatures in human form descending from clouds. She was very scared every time she dreamed of these creatures trying to make a contact with her.

One night she was walking on her way home, when a cigar-shaped craft glided silently into her view. She thought it was only an airplane but she felt something strange about it.

She was very attracted to it because the craft is far more advanced than any aircraft on this planet. Suddenly she felt she was ascending and she found herself inside the strange craft.

“I was wondering how did I get there without using stairs. An aircraft without stairs?” In an interview with Nida, she described everything she saw inside the craft. “It was spacious very modern and round shape inside. I asked anybody inside the craft if it’s really an aircraft or not.”

Then in a moment she was welcomed by some good-looking well-built tall guys all clad in gray fitted coat. “I supposed they were flight stewards of that aircraft, but they looked more advanced than human beings. They were so polite. But still I can’t control myself from shaking because I was very scared. I told them that I want to go home immediately. Are we going to stop in Mandaluyong?”

“They refused to listen to my demand. They gave me enough space to be relaxed instead. I was seated in a corner and I saw a window beside me…I opened it and I was shocked to realize that we were in space looking down to a beautiful blue planet in a distance. What is that planet? I asked them. They told me it is Earth, that’s where we came from.”

“I insisted my appeal to let me go or take me back home to Mandaluyong. I asked them to open a door for me so that I can get off the aircraft. They opened the door but I was so scared of falling remember we were floating in space. One of these guys told me that I could walk in space. To my surprised I was walking and floating in space without using any special gadget or wearing anything.”

In the middle of interview I observed Nida was smiling, a sign of happiness while narrating her fantastic experience and I myself can’t really imagine a person walking in space without wearing any special suit. I was very interested to know the feeling of being in space.

Then she continued recounting her strange experience. “I was wondering why I was walking towards a group of people…not people, but aliens waiting for me somewhere in space. I presumed they were aliens because they have different faces. Some are tall others are small, slim, with big and small eyes. “

“Then I saw a woman approaching, I know she is a human being so I asked her: ”Why are you here?” She told me she’s been in that place and stayed there for a long time. “Why did they (aliens) take me here? That’s because you were chosen. She answered my question smiling at me.” Nida again insisted her desire to go home.

“I want to go home right now, I don’t want to stay here.” Suddenly Nida found herself inside the space ship. “I was in tantrum compelling these beings around me to take me home. Abruptly, I was awakened on my bed and I thank GOD it’s only a dream.”

Was that really a dream or truly happened? Philippines foremost paranormal researcher Jimmy Licauco, who was also present and coordinated the interview confirmed Nida’s experience was really an alien abduction.

”There are many cases of alien abductions that happened while the person is awake but there are also abduction cases happened in dreams.” Licauco added.

I agree with this theory of Mr. Licauco because I know of a person who claimed he is in contact with these space beings and asked his “friends” if there is a possibility that he could travel in space with them.

They told him, if he wants to go with them in space, he must be out of his body. His physical body can’t survive for a period of time inside an alien spaceship. There are theories that extra-terrestrials’ body are not physical or matter because their molecules are loose.

Their body is etheric-like form that allows them to penetrate any matter on Earth. Other E-Ts enter our soils easily and inhabit subterranean tunnels.

Now the question is: Do aliens really exist? For those who had experienced with aliens or E-Ts, they would always stand to say that these beings are REAL and their individual experience is true.

Microsoft co-founder funds ET quest

Man is truly gearing up to make an Extra-Terrestrial contact the soonest possible time with a funding from Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, one of the richest men on Earth.

Allen pledged to donate $US13.5 million ($17.99 million) for research into extra-terrestrial life.

Thomas Pierson, director of the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Institute (SETI) said “with the contribution, Allen will have given $US25 million ($33.32 million) for construction of the Allen Telescope Array (ATA), a network of 350 radio telescopes being built to find signs of life in space.”

In a statement, SETI said scientists will use radio telescopes to measure the density of the early universe, the formation of stars and magnetic fields, and they will also be capable of searching for “possible signals from technologically advanced civilisations elsewhere in the galaxy.”

The announcement of Allen’s donation coincided with the completion of the project’s research and development phases, which Allen funded with an $US11.5 million ($15.33 million) donation.

The $US13.5 million donation will pay for the first two phases of construction of the ATA, according to the statement.

One network of 32 telescopes will be available for research by the end of 2004 and the entire network of 350 telescopes will be completed “late in the decade,” it said.

SETI and the Radio Astronomy Laboratory of the University of California at Berkley teamed up for the ATA project.

“I am very excited to be supporting one of the world’s most visionary efforts to seek basic answers to some of the fundamental question about our universe and what other civilisations may exist elsewhere,” Allen said in a ceremony in Mountain View, California, where SETI is based.

With this effort to contact ETs in a very logical and technical way, would mean that mankind’s consciousness is now gradually shifting to another level wherein we want to accept the existence of other life forms in the Universe.

Universe or Multiverse

PARALLEL UNIVERSEWe believe that our planet is among billions of planets in the universe. We also believe that universe is infinite. How about an idea that the universe is not only “uni” or one- verse but more than one universe or multiverse

I remember an action movie starred by Jet Li titled The One, that projects a reality that we are living in a parallel universe, a planet Earth with other earths, a Milky Way galaxy with similar galaxies and a universe with similar universe.

Physicist Max Tegmark, a professor of physics and astronomy at the University of Pennsylvania considers the theory of parallel worlds, when he lectured a group of more than 50 budding physicists and assorted philosophy, biology and science majors at the University of Delaware – Department of Physics and Astronomy.

Tegmark told his audience that, “there may be at least a thousand parallel universes out there.” His concept is all based on the latest measuring capabilities and mathematical equations devised by physicists in the past few years.

Many articles written by Tegmark have been published in academic periodicals and more mainstream magazines including “Scientific American” about the theory of parallel worlds.

Many would ask, who is Tegmark? Born in Sweden, he earned a doctorate from the University of California at Berkeley and post-doctorate degrees in Europe and at Princeton.

To support his hypothesis, Tegmark told his audience that the most popular and simplest cosmological model today predicts that there is another you not a short distance from us doing – exactly or approximately, depending on those unpre- dictable quantum mechanics – what you are doing now: eating breakfast, riding in a carpool, or wrinkling your brow and rolling your eyes.

The professor also argued, “if space is infinite and the distribution of matter is relatively uniform, then even the most unlikely events must take place somewhere.” This could mean there are an other infinite number of inhabited planets with people who not only look like you but have nearly the same sort of experiences.

“We know that the universe is infinite and relatively uniform, because cosmic microwave background experiments have ruled out old ideas that the universe is like a four-dimensional sphere or doughnut, implying that it’s actually rather simple and infinite. Maps of galaxy distribution also have shown a uniformity in the distribution of matter.” Tegmark was quoted by writer Victor Greto.

This theory got people killed just few hundred years ago. In 1600, theologian-philosopher Giordano Bruno was burned at the stake in Italy for heresy; among his ideas was a claim that there are more worlds out there than anyone could imagine.
Now because of a generation of open-minded people, Tegmark was not roasted alive but instead applauded with his remarkable idea.

Normally our reaction to this notion would depend upon our point of view, but I believe many would also think alike and hold up the idea of Tegmark.
