Episode 39 - Origins Of Halloween
Eric Renderking Fisk | October 29th, 2016
On this special episode of The Metaphysical Connection, we explore the origins of Halloween, what started this holiday and what makes the transition into autumn into winter so much different than the other times of the year? What is it about this holiday that makes us dwell on aspects of the supernatural, the paranormal and the afterlife?
We also go around and share titles of the best Halloween movies that have been released this year.
The Ghost Diaries: UFOs on Halloween — What Does It Mean?
Halloween, or All Hallows’ Eve, evolved from the eerie Celtic tradition of the Druids, who long ago believed October 31st represented the opening of a gateway between our world and the dark spirit domain of Samhain, Lord of Darkness. Even today, many people believe Halloween night represents the opening of a portal for undead spirits. But what if this gateway is not between the realms of the living and dead, but rather humans and aliens? Indeed, there is a rich history of UFO sightings on Halloween and, if you think about it, with all the lights and helicopters and general tomfoolery, strategically speaking this would be the perfect evening for an alien vessel to avoid scrutiny and engage in otherworldly ethnographic research. After all, as a race we probably appear pretty peculiar on Halloween night.
Search For Alien Life
If intelligent aliens actually do live around Tabby's star, astronomers are determined to find them.
The Breakthrough Listen initiative, which will spend $100 million over the next 10 years to hunt for signals possibly produced by alien civilizations, is set to begin studying Tabby's star with the 330-foot-wide (100 meters) Green Bank Telescope in West Virginia, project team members announced Tuesday (Oct. 25).
"The Green Bank Telescope is the largest fully steerable radio telescope on the planet, and it's the largest, most sensitive telescope that's capable of looking at Tabby's star given its position in the sky," Breakthrough Listen co-director Andrew Siemion, who also directs the Berkeley SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Research Center at the University of California, Berkeley, said in a statement.
Bermuda Triangle Mystery
Alex Pietrowski, Staff Writer: "The most important ecological crisis of the world has ever seen has been underway since March 11th, 2011, yet there is nary a mention of it in the corporate media, and no political body in the world is championing its resolution.
