The K-Files


Welcome back to another week's installment of this experiment in insanity known only as The K-Files. It's time to get down to business in the world of the paranormal.

This week, the Top Story covers a look into the phenomena known as déjà vu. Next, I present to you the story of a new 'paradise' found in the rainforests of New Guinea. Finally, I've got an article counting down the top 10 theories that the Moon landing was hoaxed.

You’d better get ready, ‘cause here come the K-Files…

Giving déjà vu a second look

The Reporter – Jan. 30 2006

Many of us have experienced déjà vu - the unsettling sensation of knowing that a situation could not have been experienced, combined with the feeling that it has. It is usually so fleeting that psychologists have until recently thought it impossible to study. But for some people, the feeling of having been there before is a persistent sensation, making every day a ‘Groundhog Day’.

Psychologists from Leeds’ memory group are working with sufferers of chronic déjà vu on the world’s first study of the condition.

As I write this, I’m still recovering from the biggest episode of déjà vu I have ever experienced. The event completely blew my mind.

 Like everyone, I suppose, I get déjà vu from time to time. Perhaps I’ll read something or someone will say something that will spark an occurrence, but these events are few and far between—and forgotten almost immediately.

But this latest déjà vu was on a scale the likes of which I have never seen. In most cases, there’s one single event that causes the feeling of repetition, but this time 5 separate events came together in a great intersection of psychic awareness.

I use the term psychic because there’s really no other way to describe what it is I felt. This wasn’t just a feeling that I had done it before—no, it was something greater. It’s not that I have the gift of foresight, but for a moment I believe that my brain tapped into some larger force. It was like I became aware of the world outside my own perception. Sort of like an omniscient out of body experience.

It’s too bad this monster déjà vu was purely random, happening at the most mundane of times. If it would only happen in a more opportune time, I might have been able to really benefit from it.

Scientists hail discovery of hundreds of new species in remote New Guinea

By Terry Kirby, Chief Reporter

An astonishing mist-shrouded "lost world" of previously unknown and rare animals and plants high in the mountain rainforests of New Guinea has been uncovered by an international team of scientists.

Among the new species of birds, frogs, butterflies and palms discovered in the expedition through this pristine environment, untouched by man, was the spectacular Berlepsch's six-wired bird of paradise.

In the age of Google satellite maps, I’m surprised there are still hidden gems like this to be found. I always thought that in this technological age, pretty much everything had been mapped out and claimed.

Guess not.

It’s just too bad there weren’t a bunch of mystical animals to be found there. Some new frogs and butterflies are one thing, but a bunch of utahraptors duking it out with unicorn riding sasquatches is another thing entirely.

I wonder how long until a Starbucks is set up there?

Top 10 Apollo Hoax Theories

By Robert Myers and Robert Pearlman

But why should we believe the stories? What evidence is there, really, that the Apollo program landed men on the Moon and brought them back?

Phil Plait, an astronomer at Sonoma University in California, and the Web master of BadAstronomy.com, has his reasons.

If I were trying to fake this, I would put stars in the image," he said referring to the complaint made by hoax proponents that the Apollo photos lack stars. If this had been an oversight, he said, it's an amazingly stupid thing to have forgotten, considering the scope of the "hoax."

You know, I was pretty confident that I had the Moon all figured out. Filled with all kinds of ‘facts’ about alien bases and artificial creation from various Coast to Coast AM guests, I was beginning to believe that our closest neighbor was alien in origin.

The biggest reason for this was that I was lead to believe that the Moon doesn’t rotate on its axis. Everything else in space does, so if the Moon doesn’t it has to be artificial. I don’t recall exactly which guest stated this fact, and perhaps I even made it up, but the point is that I was sure it was a correct deduction.

Then I read in a text book about a thing called tidal-lock. “What the hell?” I thought. Apparently, the reason we only see the one side of the Moon isn’t because it doesn’t spin, but because it rotates at such a rate that its revolution keeps only one side facing us.

Well I’ll be damned.

I can thank Phil ‘the bad astronomer’ Plait for this revelation. I like Phil and his quest to squash bad astronomy facts. Much less aggravating than SETI clown Seth Shostak, Plait ranks among my most favored ‘real’ scientists.

In the above article from Space.com, Plait lends a hand in debunking 10 of the more convincing Moon hoax theories. It’s a good read, and makes for a fine Coast to Coast AM companion piece.
