The K-Files


Welcome, one and all, to the newly formatted K-Files. In the past two weeks, much time and effort has gone into this complete overhaul. Now, with this new format, the K-Files transformation is complete.

This week, the Top Story covers the former Canadian defense minister's UFO bombshell. Next, I present a bit of an update on what Uri Geller does as a day job. Finally, I give my opinion on the whipping horse of esoterica--spontaneous human combustion.

You'd better get ready, 'cause here come the snazzy new K-Files...

:: Top Story ::

Aliens, eh?

Former Candadian Minister of Defence Asks Canadia Parliament To Hold Hearings On Relations With Alien

November 24, 2005 - PRWEB

By “ETs,” Mr. Hellyer and these organizations mean ethical, advanced extraterrestrial civilizations that may now be visiting Earth.

On September 25, 2005, in a startling speech at the University of Toronto that caught the attention of mainstream newspapers and magazines, Paul Hellyer, Canada’s Defence Minister from 1963-67 under Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Prime Minister Lester Pearson, publicly stated: "UFOs, are as real as the airplanes that fly over your head."

Well, I certainly wouldn't be much of a paranormal researcher if I didn't cover this story. As has been made clearly evident by the tremendous response by Coast to Coast AM hosts George Noory and even Ian Punnett, this is one of the biggest things to happen to Ufology for quite some time.

All three C2C hosts each took their own little unique approach to their coverage. First was good ol' Ian, who had the privilege of breaking the story on the air. I was glad to see that he recognized the impact of this story and decided on a dedicated open-lines hour to discuss it. I found it interesting to hear what callers had to say about the subject. Next, Art Bell fused the story with his guest, remote viewer Major Ed Dames. Although not the first guy I think of to comment on exopolitics, Dames actually had some pretty interesting things to say. Finally, the Noor featured Alfred Webre, who talked of Hellyer's credibility.

After listening to these varied viewpoints, and reading many a discussion on internet forums, I think I'm most leaning towards Dames' opinion (Gasp!). Yes, that's right, I am indeed agreeing with Dr. Doom.

As much as I would like to see a high-up whistle blower spill the beans about alien life, I'm just not convinced Hellyer is the real deal. Dames stated that this is most likely a ploy to create public dissent for space-based weapon systems. Because, as Alfred Webre pointed out, the Canadian government has held a strong opinion against America militarizing space. What I think would really be the bee's knees is if this inspired others in government to come forward about the knowledge they have. Even if Hellyer was just making a political ploy, if it gives others inspiration, then I'm all for it.

You know, almost every year in Art Bell's annual predictions show, someone says something about a major event in the field of Ufology that would begin a movement to announce the existence of aliens. I think someone was finally right.

What's that old boy Uri up to ?

Geller Helps 'conjure' up deal

AFP - 28/11/2005

Geneva - Entertainer and psychic Uri Geller played an unusual role in breaking the ice during talks on a historic deal between the Palestinian Red Crescent and its Israeli counterpart by bending spoons, diplomats revealed.

Geller, who is head of the Friends of Magen David Adom, a key fundraising arm of the Israeli relief agency, proved the point at the signing ceremony in the Swiss city of Geneva by gently rubbing a few spoons out of shape.

It seems that everyone's favorite spoon-bender is just as capable at mediating international affairs as he is at manipulating utensils.

What I found most interesting about this article was that Geller was so entrenched in politics and Israeli relief. I knew from his appearances with the Noor that Uri was a talented and multifaceted person, but I never knew the scope of his popularity.

More power to him, though. If he can use his skill to bring about a greater world peace, then he is truly a wonderful person.

:: Spontaneous Human Combustion ::

That's Hot

Does Spontaneous Human Combustion Exist?

BBC - 21 November 2005

So is spontaneous human combustion something of fact or fiction?

Modern cases have usually come about when police and fire investigators have found burned corpses but no burned furniture. Bafflement at how a body can be reduced almost to ashes, which requires temperatures of about 3,000 degrees, without any of the rest of the room being affected has driven some of the theories.

Spontaneous human combustion (SHC) has always had a warm place in my heart (pun intended). Dating back to the show Unsolved Mysteries, one of my first encounters with esoterica, I've always had an interest in SHC.

Despite countless scientists citing countless studies that debunks SHC, I've always held out hope that such a thing is possible. Not so much that catching fire spontaneously would be enjoyable to experience, but the whole concept is just so absurd that is gives life a bit of danger. It's the instant-death syndrome; you can always say, "Well, I better enjoy this because I may burst into flames at any minute."

This article pretty much says all the same things--something about oxygen and fat causing concentrated burns, yadda yadda yadda. Really, I don't care what kind of scientific explanation can be thought up. Just as some prefer to continue to believe in fairies or Santa, I will forever be a believer in spontaneous human combustion.
