Can You Be In Two Places At Once?
How would you look for something that can be in two ‘places’ at once? The answer, according to Oxford University research into a quantum phenomenon called superposition, seems to be to ask where it isn’t rather than where it is.
‘Superposition allows an atom to be simultaneously ‘here’ and ‘there’. Electrons behave like tiny magnets which can point both North and South at the same time,’ explains Professor Andrew Briggs of Oxford University’s Department of Materials. ‘This is a distinctive quantum effect; it is quite different from anything in our intuitive every day experience of the world.’
Professor Briggs tells me that you can imagine an electron as being rather like a spinning top, as it spins it generates a magnetic effect. ‘Just as a magnetic compass aligns itself with the Earth’s magnetic field, because its energy is lower when it points that way, so a single electron in a magnetic field has a different energy depending on which way its spin points,’ he says.
But in the quantum world nothing is easy: try to look directly at which way this ‘quantum compass’ is pointing and the very superposition you wanted to catch in the act – of it pointing north and south at the same time – is destroyed. Instead the superposition state will be replaced with one where the magnet is pointing either north or south at random.
To get around this problem Dr Richard George and others from Oxford worked with colleagues at TU Delft in the Netherlands to prepare a series of experiments. The researchers used the magnetism of a single atom of nitrogen trapped in a high-purity diamond as their ‘quantum mechanical compass’.
Under laser light, the nitrogen atom fluoresced according to how it was magnetised. Rather than asking, ‘Is the magnet pointing north or south?’ the team asked, ‘Is it pointing not east?’ Measurements that confirm ‘not east’ were still compatible with the quantum superposition of pointing both north and south at the same time.
The researchers studied three successive rounds of measurement on the nitrogen quantum compass, and used correlations between different rounds to prove the presence of quantum superposition in their system.
‘We had previously performed experiments in which the nuclei of our atoms had two states available to them. Now we have extended this to a superposition of three states, if you like North, South, and East,’ Professor Briggs explains.
‘The investigation involved an intermediate measurement, which was equivalent to opening one of three boxes and seeing if a ball was not in it. We showed that not only could you not tell which box had been opened; you could not even tell whether a box had been opened. This in turn, thorough some rather detailed reasoning, allowed us to prove experimentally some fundamental conjectures about the nature of reality.’
According to Professor Briggs this work is pushing the boundaries of ‘quantumness’ and developing techniques that will help to investigate whether quantum superposition applies to larger and more complex objects.
Dr George adds: ‘Our confirmation of these subtle quantum predictions is an important step on the road to transplanting quantum mechanics from a theoretical and laboratory curiosity and into the devices which we use in commerce and everyday life. Our vision is to scale up and build computers in which every ‘bit’ is replaced with a ‘quantum bit’ that uses superposition as an integral part of their operation.’ Source: Message To Eagle
Extraordinary Photographic Memory Of Genius Stephen Wiltshire
He has been called the “Human Camera”. His mind is unique and his photographic memory allows him to remember everything he has seen. When ordinary people visit a new place, they can normally recall a couple of buildings, some streets and a few details. This is not the case with Stephen Wiltshire who can draw astonishing landscapes based on what he has seen.
Even more extraordinary is that he just has to see a city once and his drawing will actually look like the city, with every single building ‘ in its exact place and perfectly sized in proportion to real life. Buildings, windows, arches, doorways almost every detail is precisely correct in size and placement.
So how can we explain his remarkable memory? Stephen Wiltshire is a British architectural artist who has been diagnosed with autism. Autism hinders certain parts of the brain from communicating with one another, which can lead to difficulties with learning and processing information. However in Wiltshire’s case this lack of communication between parts of the brain actually gives him his unique ability.
Wiltshire was born on April 24, 1974 and he has been drawing most of his life. He began communicating through his drawings after being sent to Queensmill School in London, and with the support of his special-needs teachers, gradually learned to speak.
It was during those school years that they discovered Stephen’s special talent, when he drew the ornate Albert Hall following a class field trip without the aid of a photograph. Today his drawings are famous and admired by many people. Perhaps most astonishing is that
Stephen Wiltshire doesn’t just remember landscapes long enough to do the drawing. He retains them, possibly forever. All drawings and information about Stephen Wiltshire can be found on his website: http://www.stephenwiltshire.co.uk/index.aspx Source: MessageToEagle
Thousands Of Spiders Falling From The Sky In Brazil
We have previously seen that many strange things have fallen from the skies over the centuries. People have experienced how objects as well as animals have suddenly dropped down on the ground totally out of nowhere.
What is the cause of these strange showers of frogs and toads, along with fish, snakes and worms. Blood has been said to fall from the heavens, as well as meat, muscle and flesh. Earlier this month, people in small town in southern Brazil were shocked to see thousands of spiders falling from the sky. A resident grabbed a camera and recorded this curious event.
According to scientists, this might be astonishing to people, but there is a natural explanation. “The phenomenon observed is not really surprising,” said Leticia Aviles, who studies social spiders at the University of British Columbia.
“Either social or colonial spiders may occur in large aggregations, as the one shown in the video.” The reason, she and others say, is simple: This is how they hunt. If this is Parawixia, or a similar species, there’s a reason the spiders may have appeared to come out of nowhere.
“At night, they all collect in a colonial retreat, probably out of sight in a tree,” Uetz said. “Then they build the colonial framework early in the day, and build individual webs upon it. They sit on these webs and capture prey.”
Arachnologist George Uetz agrees. “This is definitely not Anelosimus eximius,” said Uetz, who studies spiders at the University of Cincinnati. He notes that the spiders appear to be spread out on a colonial network of individual orb webs (rather than building a communal nest) and resemble big, orb-weaving spiders – perhaps Parawixia bistriata. “This colony is quite large,” he said, noting that the spiders aren’t actually raining down. “The web is fixed, although it is very fine and mostly invisible,” he said.

Unidentified Falling Disks?
Hi, I live in Kaukauna Wisconsin.
You may think this a little strange but I’m beginning to think this photograph belongs on your site. In the strictest sense an object which remains unidentified and flies is an unidentified flying object, or UFO, correct? But how about unidentified “falling” objects?
Well, these little disks just started falling from the sky near my house a few months ago. (see attached jpg) It was July 2nd, or 3rd, 2003. I was outside talking to my neighbor when these little metal disks started bouncing off the roof and clanking off of the gutters.
My neighbor found about ten of these and I found the ones you see in the photograph (note the size compared to the quarter). So far no one has been able to tell us what they are. This is why I say they are unidentified.
We’ve already given quite a few of these out to people to “test” and examine etc., but without any answers – and unfortunately no one ever sends them back to us (even though they swear up and down that they will), so please don’t ask. (Mine are all gone but for one, and my neighbor only has one or two left as well).
But please, if you can tell us what these things are, or have seen them before, we are really quite curious. We are already pretty sure they are not aircraft parts.
Thanks, Billy K.
300 Million Year Old Machinery Found In Russia
The Voice of Russia and other Russian sources are reporting that a 300 million year old piece of aluminum machinery has been found in Vladivostok. Experts say a gear rail appears to be manufactured and not the result of natural forces.
According to Yulia Zamanskaya, when a resident of Vladivostok was lighting the fire during a cold winter evening, he found a rail-shaped metal detail which was pressed in one of the pieces of coal that the man used to heat his home. Mesmerized by his discovery, the responsible citizen decided to seek help from the scientists of Primorye region.
After the metal object was studied by the leading experts the man was shocked to learn about the assumed age of his discovery. The metal detail was supposedly 300 million years old and yet the scientists suggest that it was not created by nature but was rather manufactured by someone. The question of who might have made an aluminum gear in the dawn of time remains unanswered.
The find was very much like a toothed metal rail, created artificially. It was like parts are often used in microscopes, various technical and electronic devices says writer Natalia Ostrowski at KP UA Daily.
Nowadays, finding a strange artifact in coal is a relatively frequent occurrence. The first discovery of this sort was made in 1851 when the workers in one of the Massachusetts mines extracted a zinc silver-incrusted vase from a block of unmined coal which dated all the way back to the Cambrian era which was approximately 500 million years ago.
Sixty one years later, American scientists from Oklahoma discovered an iron pot which was pressed into a piece of coal aged 312 million years old. Then, in 1974, an aluminum assembly part of unknown origin was found in a sandstone quarry in Romania. Reminiscent of a hammer or a support leg of a spacecraft “Apollo”, the piece dated back to the Jurassic era and could not have been manufactured by a human. All of these discoveries not only puzzled the experts but also undermined the most fundamental doctrines of modern science.
The metal detail which was recently found by Vladivostok resident is yet another discovery which perplexed the scientists. The coal in which the metal object was pressed was delivered to Primorye from Chernogorodskiy mines of Khakasia region. Knowing that the coal deposits of this region date 300 million years back, Russian experts inferred that the metal detail found in these deposits must be an age-mate of the coal.
Another question that interests Russian scientists is whether the aluminum alloy is of Earthly origin. It is known from the study of meteorites that there exists extra-terrestrial aluminum-26 which subsequently breaks down to magnesium-26. The presence of 2 percent of magnesium in the alloy might well point to the alien origin of the aluminum detail. It could also be evidence of some past, unknown civilization on Earth. Nonetheless, further testing is needed to confirm this hypothesis.
It is the first such finding in coal made in Russia, according to anomaly researcher and biologist Valery Brier, who took microscopic samples of the aluminum for testing. Valery Brier performed X-ray diffraction analysis of the metal. It showed very pure aluminum with microimpurities of magnesium of only 2 – 4 percent. Analysis was also conducted by Senior Fellow of the St. Petersburg Institute of Nuclear Physics Igor Okunev who confirmed the age of the material according to Natalia Ostrovsky.
The find is very much like a toothed metal rail, created artificially. It was like parts that are often used in microscopes, as well as various technical and electronic devices.
“The Piasa Bird is a Native American Cryptid depicted in one or two murals painted by Native Americans on bluffs (cliffsides) above the Mississippi River. Its original location was at the end of a chain of limestone bluffs in Madison County, Illinois at present-day Alton, Illinois. The original Piasa illustration no longer exists.
A newer 20th Century version has been placed on a bluff in Alton, Illinois, several hundred yards upstream from its place of origin”.
John Russell account
The monster depicted in the mural was first referred to as the “Piasa Bird” in an article published circa 1836 by John Russell of Bluffdale, Illinois. John Russell was an imaginative professor of Greek and Latin at Shurtleff College, Upper Alton, Illinois.
The article was entitled “The Tradition of The Piasa” and Russell claimed the origin of the word to be from a nearby stream : “This stream is the Piasa. Its name is Indian, and signifies, in the Illini, “The Bird That Devours Men” “. [note: The original "Piasa Creek" ran thru the main ravine in downtown Alton, and was completely covered by huge drainage pipes circa 1912.]
According to the story published by Russell, the creature depicted by the painting was a huge bird that lived in the cliffs. Russell claimed that this creature attacked and devoured people in nearby Indian villages shortly after the corpses of a war gave it a taste for human flesh. The legend claims that a local Indian chief, named Chief Ouatoga, managed to slay the monster using a plan given to him in a dream from the Great Spirit.
The Chief ordered his bravest warriors to hide near the entrance of the Piasa Bird’s cave, which Russell also claimed to have explored. Outoga then acted as bait to lure the creature out into the open. As the monster flew down toward the Indian Chief, his warriors slew it with a volley of poisoned arrows. Russell claimed that the mural was painted by the Indians as a commemoration of this heroic event.
Some sources report that this account was simply a story created by John Russell. In the book “Records of Ancient Races in the Mississippi Valley…” Chapter 2, 1887 by W. McAdams , the author says he contacted John Russell and Russell admitted the story was “somewhat illustrated”
[He is also supposed to have told his son the story was "Made up"-DD]. The bird imagery is not reported in Father Marquette’s description, which makes no mention of wings. [emphasis added-DD] It is also possible that Marquette’s description and Russell’s account were both accurate for their respective times. The image may have been repainted at some point between 1673 and 1836 to revise its appearance and iconography.
When contemporary historians, folklorists, and tourism promoters are looking for a narrative description of the story behind the Piasa “Bird”, they often rely on Russell’s account. This colorful version of the tale can be adapted to allow a wide range of interpretation and allow other cities and counties to claim promotional rights to the legend.
Furthermore,Local claims that the word “Piasa” meant “the bird that devours men” or “bird of the evil spirit” are not accurate nor based in the Illinois language.
It seems that the original petroglyph was a different sort of creature entirely and that the image that had been originally reported,
by the 1840s sprouted wings, probably by way of some White Men restoring the image beyond what was actually warranted. About the time that Russell “Made up” his version of the story (together with the fanciful “Translation” of “The Bird that Eats Men”), the petroglyph looked like this:
And it seems that the creature had reversed position on the rock as part of the process. The 20th Century version now used is mostly fanciful but is ultimately a much-modified descendant of the 1840s version, with the wings becoming ever larger and sturdier
from Wikipedia, under “Discovery”:
“While Skirting some rocks, which by Their height and length inspired awe, We saw upon one of them two painted monsters which at first made Us afraid, and upon Which the boldest savages dare not Long rest their eyes.
They are as large As a calf; they have Horns on their heads Like those of a deer, a horrible look, red eyes, a beard Like a tiger’s, a face somewhat like a man’s, a body Covered with scales, and so Long A tail that it winds all around the Body, passing above the head and going back between the legs, ending in a Fish’s tail. Green, red, and black are the three Colors composing the Picture.
Moreover, these 2 monsters are so well painted that we cannot believe that any savage is their author; for good painters in France would find it difficult to reach that place Conveniently to paint them. Here is approximately The shape of these monsters, As we have faithfully Copied It.”
Later French explorers, like St. Cosme, reported that by 1699 the series of images were badly worn due to the habits of the local Indians to “discharge their weapons” at the images as they passed. Author A.D. Jones, in his book ” Illinois and the West” c.1838, also describes the ravages of weapons (firearms) upon the images, and further refers to the paintings as being named “Piasua”.
Wikipedia illustration of The Underwater Panther or Misipizhiw from the article on the Piasa petroglyphs. The figure is important in many Native traditions and is frequently posted along waterways, also including the Great Lakes area. There is very little doubt that the original Piasa petroglyphs were variations on this design, which was also of importance to the Mississippian “Moundbuilder” cultures of the area.
While it actually is possible to locate Native words meaning “Bird” that sound like “Piasa” in the Eastern Woodlands area, it is pretty certain that the creature depicted was never thought of as a “Bird” at all. Furthermore, nearly everybody that quotes Russell’s story in more modern times wants to relate it to the Thunderbird legend and to modern sightings of what are also said to be Thundrebirds in the area.
On the contrary, Thunderbirds are also known from Folklore of the area, in their usual “Bird” forms and not as flying “Piasa Birds”. They are depicted in traditional fashion to resemble larger eagles. And what is more, Folklore of the Great Plains insists that the Thunderbirds and the Underwater Panthers (or Horned Serpents) are at war with each other and are seeking each others’ extermination.
And the final blow seems to be that actually, “Piasa” seems to be taken as merely a variation on the term for Mishipizhiw, perhaps a generic trade term used throughout the Mississipian mound area.
The website where this pipe was illustrated does so use the term “Piasa” as a composite creature of mostly-feline appearance and underworld associations, or in other words what is called Mishipizhiw (and with numerous variations) in other areas. The pipe is from Alabama. The source is the Smithsonian Institution, from the Collections of the National Museum of the American Indian. Source: www.utaot.com mysteries
Scientology ‘Alien Space Cathedral’ Reportedly Revealed
In the New Mexico desert lies an allegedly secret Scientology installation that includes a huge message for extraterrestrials — a crop circle-type design that can only easily be seen from high above the ground.
That’s among the allegations set forth by BBC Panorama reporter John Sweeney in a new book, “Church of Fear: Inside the Weird World of Scientology,” reports the New York Daily News.
The controversial Church of Scientology — which boasts celebrity members Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Kirstie Alley and Juliette Lewis — was founded in 1952 by writer L. Ron Hubbard, and promotes the concept that humans are immortal beings with reincarnated souls.
In his book, excerpted in The Sun, Sweeney writes that the two huge interlocking circles — each of which has a large diamond shape inside — were created as markers to guide special Scientologists “returning from space to find Mr. Hubbard’s works after a nuclear Armageddon wipes out humanity.”
Sweeney also reports that buried texts of Hubbard’s teachings are included at the top secret New Mexico Scientology site. The BBC reporter tried to find “the space alien cathedral that ex-Scientologists say was built deep underground by the church in the 1980s at the cost of millions of dollars.
“Its vault houses the lectures of Hubbard on gold discs locked in titanium caskets sealed with argon. The cathedral is H-bomb proof,” Sweeney reports in his book.
Sweeney went to the supposed site of the alien cathedral accompanied by former Scientologist Marc Headley.
“Headley says he was ‘audited’ — given spiritual counseling — by Tom Cruise, Hollywood superstar and leading church member. Marc says he was also beaten up by the shadowy church’s leader David Miscavige. The church denies both incidents,” Sweeney alleged.
“If I’m wrong about the church believing in aliens, then why have they built these giant symbols in the middle of the desert that can only be seen from outer space,” Sweeney said, according to therawstory.com. Souyrce: Weird News
Oops, Got The Wrong ‘Channel’
Mount Shasta’s never been a popular celebrity resort town like Jackson Hole, Wyoming, or Park City, Utah – the kind of place where you might bump into somebody famous or a prominent public figure (Bigfoot notwithstanding). This is more of the kind of town where people unwittingly become famous for all the wrong reasons.
And when it comes to Mount Shasta, there is probably nobody who fills that role more brilliantly than a former resident and channeler named Dorothy Martin.
Dorothy Martin’s strange journey begins as a bored housewife living in a Chicago, Illinois suburb during the 1950′s; she had an abiding interest in theosophy, and had read the works of Godfre Ray King, also known as Guy Ballard, who founded the I AM religion after meeting the Ascended Master Saint Germain on the slopes of Mount Shasta.
Dorothy began experimenting with ‘automatic writing’ (a form of spirit channeling), and was soon in touch with Space Beings from a planet called ‘Clarion’, who warned her that an imminent disaster was due to fall upon humanity.

Through her channeled writings, Dorothy attracted an odd group of spiritual seekers around her, and a weird UFO Contactee cult evolved out of it. Unbeknownst to Dorothy, a couple of scientists seeking to study the kind of fanaticism that pervades religious cults infiltrated her group after a local newspaper published one of her doomsday screeds.
The messages from the Space Beings, who Dorothy began to refer to as the ‘Guardians’, indicated that the world would end by a flood on December 21st, 1954–but the faithful (meaning anyone gullible enough to believe her) would be lifted up off the planet to safety in an alien mothership.
As the fateful date approached, Dorothy’s circle of spiritual seekers were unshaken in their faith of the Space Beings warnings, and had left jobs, college, spouses, and some had even given away money and possessions in advance of their departure aboard the flying saucer.
On December 21st, the group expected that a saucer would land in Dorothy’s backyard to pick them all up at four o-clock, just before the world ended.
So they gathered inside her house and waited. The prophecy was well publicized by the local press, and outside Dorothy’s house, a curious crowd of strangers and journalists began arriving to see just what would happen.
The tension must have been palpable as the minutes ticked off. Dorothy had previously channeled a message that everyone was to remove all the metal from their clothing, including buckles, jewelry, buttons, zippers, bobby-pins, and clasps, and so everyone was put through a metal-removal screening process to ensure that they would be ready to board the flying saucer when it landed.
The local press was eagerly interested in information about the groups status throughout the day, and pestered them with repeated phone calls. One of the members was deputized to handle the calls, and always responded with a terse “No comment,” and shut off further questioning by hanging up the phone.

Dorothy was described as being in a manic and ecstatic state, dashing from room to room and looking out the windows, scanning the skies. But by 5:30 p.m. no flying saucer had landed, and the mood in the house was beginning to look glum . . . an uneasy silence fell over the crowd of believers. So Dorothy turned on the television and instructed everyone to watch carefully for any secret coded messages that might be being transmitted to them from planet Clarion–but nobody could make anything out.
The question on everyone’s mind that nobody wanted to talk about but was unavoidable had to be asked. Why hadn’t the aliens landed? Several suggestions were cautiously voiced to explain the failure of the saucer’s arrival.
One possibility discussed was that the presence of strangers around the house might have caused the spacemen to veer off. A few other suggestions were floated, but in the end, the most satisfying one that the group came up with was that this afternoon had just been meant as a training “alert”, so that when the Clarions finally arrived the group would know the drill and be ready. The Space Beings were testing the group’s ‘readiness’.
Dorothy, undeterred, channeled another message saying that following the ‘alert’, at half past midnight, the flying saucer would really appear this time– it was still on its way to pick up the believers, and it would not wait for anyone who was not ready. So all those who remained excitedly went out into the backyard to hold a vigil, joyous again in anticipation, and spent a cold, bitter, freezing winter night shivering and waiting for the UFO to land.
By 3 a.m., when the spaceship still had not arrived, everyone pretty much retired to bed in disappointment. Dorothy broke down and began crying.
Around 4:45 a.m. another telepathic message was channeled to Dorothy from the Space Beings, in effect, explaining that the ‘God of Earth’ had decided in the last minute to spare the planet from destruction: “The little group, sitting up all night long, had so much light that God had saved the world from destruction.”
And that is the story how the world was saved from an impending apocalypse one wintery night in Chicago on December 21st, 1954.
