  • Any UFO researcher worth their salt should browse through psywar.org, which "is a repository for the serious historical study of psychological warfare (PsyWar), psychological operations (PSYOPs), information warfare (InfoWar), aerial propaganda leaflets, and the black propaganda work of Sefton Delmer, from World War One (WWI), through World War Two (WWII), to the present day."

Weekend Roundup 21-07-2006

A few things to keep you busy over the weekend...

  • More Red Pill entries worth checking out: a topical article on Robert Bigelow, and two of the RlC mystery's main characters, Berenger Sauniere and Henri Boudet. Feel free to add material, or create new articles - the more the merrier!
  • Speaking of Robert Bigelow, make sure you check out the personal account of the launch of the Genesis I module a few days ago. The one anecdote about running extension cords to a nearby restaurant is mind-boggling (I'm guessing there'll be money in next year's budget for a generator?).
  • Tim Boucher reviews the film version of PKD's A Scanner, Darkly over at the Pop Occulture online magazine, and it's not to his liking.
  • Filip Coppens takes a look at the sacred geography of Athens.
  • The Société Périllos have part 3 of their essay series "The Origins of the Priory of Sion". Part 1 is here, and here's part 2.
  • The Psychedelic Salon has a new podcast, from the 2003 Burning Man Festival: "A Conversation About How Communities Come About".
  • Whitley Strieber has a new journal entry: "Missing Time, and the Future".
  • Filer's Files #29 has the latest ufological news from around the globe.
  • Graham Hancock's website has a new forum article available: "Ancient Ruins in Ainabo - Central Somaliland", by Musa Hersi.
  • SurvivalAfterDeath.org has "Ideoplasticity", by G.C. Barnard.
  • Kyle King breaks down Seth Shostak's defence of SETI over at UFO Reflections.
  • And remember, tomorrow is 22nd of July - the Feast Day of St Mary Magdalene. Andy Gough gives you the view of the day from a Rennes-le-Chateau viewpoint.
