Aliens, Multi-Dimensional Reality and Paranormal Visitations

I think the Multiverse is much stranger than we imagine. Many of the top Theoretical Scientists now believe in an unlimited number of Dimensions. These Alternate and Multi Dimensions come, Consensually via modern Scientific thought, in one of 4 types. I won’t venture too deeply into the 4 primary different types, however, suffice it to say we may have parallel lives (Parallel Existence) or/and we may have other weird Dimensions flowing through where you are sitting right now. There may be Higher Vibratory Dimensions and Fractured “Reality” Dimensions. There may even be several types of Alternate Reality / Dimensions that we haven’t even theorized yet. I find it very Exciting that we may actually have an unlimited number of Alternate Lives, and that other Inhabitants may be Dimensionally “Visiting” right now. Some of the best works on the subject are by Dr. Michio Kaku, and on a more Paranormal vista - works by John A. Keel (especially: The Mothman Prophecies) and Jacques VallĂ©e. Vallee's UFO classic, Messengers of Deception is quite an interesting read.

I do wish to share a thought that flows through that mess I call a mind now and then: Imagine a technologically advanced Alien Civilization that was 500 years more advanced than us. What would the mode of transportation, cities, “aircraft”, etc. look like? Now imagine that this Alien Civilization was 1,000 years more advanced than us. Would you recognize modes of transportation, the Entities themselves, etc. How about 5000 years more advanced than us… 20,000 more advanced than us… 100,000 years more advanced than us… 500,000 years more advanced than us… 1,000,000… The age of the Universe does allow for an Advanced Alien Civilization to exist - that is more than several Million years more advanced than us, if they (or some type of Natural Disaster) didn’t wipe themselves out. Would we even know if they were right next to us right now..? I do know one thing. They sure wouldn’t be crashing their poorly driven UFO’s in the desert.

New Tribal Gothic Website soon...

Finally making progress on the New layout of the Tribal Gothic Website. This has involved much work so far: Images, coding, Flash, etc. I cannot take full credit, as part of the layout is from a template – however, there continues to be much modification to said template. All will hopefully be uploaded soon.

Not being “Normal” was never a choice.

Over the years, I have had the somewhat unique pleasure of being asked why I like what I like or, enjoy what I enjoy – as if I chose to deliberately detach myself from the common likes of most other people. I admit that I never really fell prey to programming, be it Social, Political, Religious or other systems of “Belief”. Perhaps, the hint is that I almost always put “Belief” and “Reality” in quotes. Consensual reality and programming – no thanks, not for me.

The origins are obscure – however, I remember even at the tender age of 5 or 6, enjoying shows where the main character or characters were the outcasts or, the unique thinkers. Such shows as: Secret Agent Man, The Prisoner, The Addams Family, The Munsters, Bewitched… I watched and listened to anything unique, unusual – out of the Norm. I also started my interest in Vampires, Aliens, Paranormal, Horror Movies, Sci-fi and general outsiderness at around 6 years old. Perhaps, this could have something to do with the glowing globe/sphere that occasionally visited the backyard at dusk and later in the night. It could have something to do with my sleepwalking around that age… I was prone to see Shadows moving on the walls late at night (an active imagination perhaps) and the mist that somewhat quarterly invaded my room around Midnight and again at around 4:oo am… Perhaps it was the Sleep Paralysis… The 11:11 occurences… The Streetlight effects… Only that, and nothing more. No Raven, no Owl, no…

Perhaps it is simply that I have been blessed/cursed with an incredible “Imagination” and seem to see beyond what most others view in their daily lives. Even at age 5 or 6, I sought different music, different TV shows, different Artists… Dali, Bosch, Giger, Escher, Edward Gorey… Gothic was soooo appealing. Black was my favorite color since the age of 4 (seriously) and anything Psychedelic was appealing – as it is with many children. I performed the usual Mind-altering experiences as a child: spinning until you get so dizzy you fall down… I would sit and stare off into the distance until I thought I could “see” beyond “Reality”…

So, these days, when I listen to Skinny Puppy, Bauhaus, Sphongle, Sun Ra, Tones on Tail, etc…. And, I watch movies that twist the theme of “Reality” like: Vidocq, The matrix, Dark City, eXistenZ, Videodrone, Fight Club, Wanted, 12 Monkeys, Brazil… And I work on my Alien Gothic Steampunk Art - It all seems quite “Normal” to me.

Friday the 13th

Since I have an affinity for the Viking, Pagan and other belief systems that were persecuted, tarnished and in some cases destroyed via the agents of oppressive and hateful dogma over the years, I tend to favor this theory on Friday the 13th.  Quoted from:

"One theory by author Charles Panati, one of the leading authorities on the subject of "Origins" maintains that the superstition can be traced back to ancient myth:

The actual origin of the superstition, though, appears also to be a tale in Norse mythology. Friday is named for Frigga, the free-spirited goddess of love and fertility. When Norse and Germanic tribes converted to Christianity, Frigga was banished in shame to a mountaintop and labeled a witch. It was believed that every Friday, the spiteful goddess convened a meeting with eleven other witches, plus the devil - a gathering of thirteen - and plotted ill turns of fate for the coming week. For many centuries in Scandinavia, Friday was known as "Witches' Sabbath." --{ Charles Panati, Panati's Extraordinary Origins of Everyday Things, 1987, p. 13. "
"Another theory about the origin of the superstition traces the event to the arrest of the legendary Knights Templar."

Tribal Gothic is going to Mars - Again!

In late May and then again in early June of 2003, two separate Mars Rovers were launched on a 7 1/2 month journey to the surface of Mars. The first Rover landed on the Martian surface around January 2, 2004 and the second one around January 20, 2004. The two rovers — MER-A Spirit and MER-B Opportunity, have been making news ever since. Each Martian Rover contained a DVD with individual names submitted to NASA. Thus, Tribal Gothic has been on Mars (in digital form) since 2004.

The new Mars mission also allowed for the option to send your name on a Microchip to Mars. NASA's Mars Science Laboratory rover is heading to Mars in 2011.  Tribal Gothic will once again be digitally heading to mars!
