  Occult Questions

Think outside of your normal, conventional time-frame and answer these questions

  Can our consciousness survive physical death and re-manifests in different forms time and time again? 
  Astronomers calculate that the Hubble telescope could detect about 80 billion galaxies. How many habitable planets (those within the temperature margins that could support life and with a breathable atmosphere-with could be other than oxygen for a very different than the species on our earth) would be included? It's very egoist and narrow-minded to think we are alone in a vast universe. Have aliens visited us in the past-has the government covered that up? (Roswell) and are they still observing us? Have people been abducted into "flying saucers"? Have aliens left their "calling cards" already on our planet? (crop circles)
Why do so many megalithic structures around the world have so much in common? How were the timeless, massive, ancient structures of the world-the pyramids, Stonehenge, the Dolmen monuments of Russia, the stone circles of England, Easter Island, built? Who were the builders? How can the intricate Nasca lines of Peru exist when they can only be appreciated from an airplane?
  Our senses are very limited. It's obvious that even the household dog and cat or the eagle in the wild can hear, smell, and see so much more acutely than we humans. Is there a world beyond our senses-a spiritual world that we only get an inkling of now and then with ghost sightings? Are there supernatural beings? Will you have a paranormal experience in your lifetime? 
  Are there persons who have attained magical powers-magicians, wiccans, fairies?
The term 'occult' means hidden, out of view, unseen, in the shadows? There are many more occult questions to think about.

            Introduction to the Paranormal

The dictionary definition of the paranormal is phenomena "beyond the range of normal experience or scientific explanation." What does this mean? We all have been taught about the five senses: sight, hearing, touch, smell, and taste. We humans are each in our own lonely shell: every other perception of the nature of human existence is illusionary
  We can interact with the world but, just think about how limiting the five senses are?    We all tend to define the world by our perceptions. From childhood, our very "reality" is generated by our mind's interaction with the environment. But aren't we really only in our own little "reality holes" unless we can think beyond the conventional and "normal" world? Just begin to think how many animals have senses far beyond ours. For instance, bees can see wave lengths that people can't see; predatory birds can see prey from a height of 15,000 feet; a dog can smell and hear what we cannot -and the list goes on. We humans are very lacking in our senses so we should not further limit our selves by not trying to free our minds to what is beyond the normal. We possess mental powers that animals might not have; yet many humans are very arrogant and limited in their "mind perceptions."

  What are paranormal experiences and topics? The experiences of many individuals are vast and the possible topics are both vast and fascinating: beings beyond the everyday like ghosts and poltergeists, fairies, aliens, and vampires: mysterious places and structures and megaliths like the pyramids, Stonehenge, the lines, pictograms, and water channels on the Nazca Plain, Atlantis, The Bermuda Triangle; symbols or objects with magickal or predictive and personal powers like tarot cards, pentacles, amulets and talismans, crystals, the ankh; paranormal experiences like alien abductions, 
near-death experiences, past-life regression, hauntings, channeling, magickal rituals, clairvoyance, and meditation; and paranormal and occult beliefs, and groups, like theosophy, Goddess worship and witchcraft, Druidism, and the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn; renown occultists like Alvertus Magnus Aleister Crowley, Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, Eliphas Levi, -and the list goes on. 
Megalithic mysteries: Stonehenge, pyramids...
  Why are the megalithic structures of the past-back to 5500 years-the Great Pyramid of Pharoah Khufu built around 2520 B.C. ,Stonehenge built somewhere between 2000-3000 B.C., and many other megalithic structures from many countries during the Neolithic period-even up to the moai-gigantic statues from Easter Island probably dating back to 600-800 A.D. considered to be such a mystery? 
  Given the ancient time, the magnitude of these structures made of rocks that can reach 50 tons on the inside in the case of the pyramids -and averaging over 2 tons for all the stones-all the over 2 million stone blocks in the Great Pyramid, the Egyptian obelisks weighing up to 400 tons, the huge stones of Stonehenge-some 40 tons-yet huge stones that are precisely cut and fitted together so well without mortar, generates awe in any observer. It is a great mystery that they even exist. Even in this world of a new millennium, modern man has to wonder at the splendor of of these impressive structures from the far past.  
       Aliens, Ufos, crop circles, extraterrestrials...

  Whether you personally believe in flying saucers or not-actually between one-third and one-half of Americans believe in unidentified flying objects (UFOs) shown  by a gallup poll in September 1996 which probably hasn’t changed that much now:from    NACOMM -
In a little-reported poll taken in early September, 1996, the Gallup Organization asked 1,000 U.S. adults about their belief in UFOs and life in outer space.
  The poll indicated that belief in the reality of UFOs remains about where it has been for the last two decades -- around 50%. According to Gallup, that number peaked in 1978 at 57%. Far more people today, 72%, seem convinced that there is some kind of life in the universe beyond earth, though only 38% think such life will look somewhat like ourselves.
 Also significant is the finding that 71% of those polled believe the U.S. government knows more about UFOs than it has disclosed.
..still, UFOs, flying saucers, and aliens are very much a part of our culture. Just for starters, think of all the movies based on this phenomenon. Here are a few that come to my mind, I am sure you can think of more:

 1. The Day the Earth Stood Still
 2. The Invaders
 3. Invaders from Mars
4. Close Encounters of the Third Kind   1977
 5. The X-Files
6. War of the Worlds  1938
 7. Invasion of the Body Snatchers   1956 and   remake in 1978
8. The Thing

   They’re out there somewhere. Surely we are not alone in this vast universe. That would be a very arrogant and limited concept in itself. It is much more reasonable to believe there is other life “out there.” Probably some of these beings would be more advanced than us-that is just logical. However, whether the earth has been visited is certainly debatable. Still there have been many observations and events that do point to this very possibility.

   In 1947 at Roswell, something very strange did happen. I think that is evident by all the documentation and eyewitnesses at the time.  There was a crash site with unknown wreckage. There was a government press release that the military had recovered “a flying disk.” This news created a nationwide reaction. Then the government did a complete turnaround, claiming it was just a weather balloon. Let’s just say that there did seem to be a cover up and there was documentation of some pretty rough suppression of the whole incident.
 Once the genie is out of the bottle, or the pandora’s box is open, all the conjecture doesn’t just vanish into thin here. From this time, the term “flying saucer” came into being. There have been a multitude of sightings of UFOs. Not all of them can be discounted. Airplanes or weather balloons don’t turn on a dime and accelerate almost instantly as mysterious unidentified objects have been observed to do. There is a whole constellation of puzzles around the UFO phenomena: the crop circles, the cattle mutilations, the alien abductions that are part of this complex of mysterious happenings around UFOs.
