Episode #045: "Into Nowhere" with Thomas Spriggs

We have author Thomas Spriggs with us for this show to discuss his excellent book "Into Nowhere", an examination of the regions and patterns of disappearances enumerated by Dave Paulides in his Missing 411 series of books.
This is a very heavy topic, one that is discussed often on this podcast as one of the most pressing and disturbing mysteries of our times, and we were hoping to have a productive conversation on the topic that does not simply recount strange stories of missing persons, and Mr. Spriggs certainly delivers. He has been keeping up with the tracking of what he calls "active regions" since publishing his book, and he weaves a description of an intelligent and aware predator that knows enough about humans and human civilization to spread the abductions just far enough apart in time and distance to keep them from reaching the collective awareness as a distinct phenomena, but that once you connect the cases, you can detect the linear movement of this.... whatever this thing is.

All in all it is a fascinating discussion, and we just go straight through for two hours, no breaks, do not pass Go, do not collect $200, go directly to end of SnakeBros 45 and at least a few sleepless nights, huddled in the blankets, every light on in the entire house, trying not to disappear, like so many others, Into Nowhere.

Episode #044: Electric Universe, Magnetic Universe

We're still in the Electric Universe rabbithole for this show, so we've been looking at various signs, sigils, symbols, petroglyphs, rock art, ancient structures, and modern mysterious phenomena in light of the EU cosmology. In this episode we consider the Paracas Candelabra, the Nazca Lines, the Atacama Giant, the Band of Holes, and many other strange artifacts of the ancient past. We look again at Bermuda Triangle phenomena, the Hutchison Effect, the Dragon's Triangle off the coast of Japan, and the concept of other universes coexisting in the same space as ours, yet forever out of reach.

Episode #043: Electric Universe and Trumpets of the Apocalypse

What's a show about fringe science, alternative cosmologies, ancient mysteries, and snakes without some good ole' Chinese Dragons surfing the enormous Universe-Waves of the Cosmic Æther while Thunderbolts of the Gods flash between planets/stars/galaxies keeping those islands of light and warmth energized as oases against the Stygian Darkness of the in-between, where nothing is, yet from whence all nightmares come; without Pyramids as Catalysts for a gold-dust Tesla-inspired Supershield against the catastrophic chaos of intra-solar gravito-electric regime-change and shifting plasma sheaths of suns, without the ponderous zodiacal Wheel of Time spinning backward in prediction of all things future?

Nothing, that's what.

But this show, ladies and gentlemen, delivers.

'Nuff said. Enjoy.

Pics because it happened. Below is a selection from the Arp Catalogue of Peculiar Galaxies:

Ancient Chinese Seismoscope. The spheres held in the dragons' mouths would drop into the mouths of the frogs, indicating the direction of an earthquake. 

Seismoscope was invented by this guy, who probably only invented things like seismoscopes in his spare time away from being a wispy bearded kung fu badass.

Episode 042: Life, the Universe, and Hive Mining Everything

We have two guests joining us from MineTheHive for this episode, so we talk about their experiences with lucid dreaming and out-of-body/astral travel, and that leads to sleep paralysis and aliens and eventually, pyramids. If there's one thing we've learned doing SnakeBros, it's that everything eventually comes back to pyramids. Which in this particular case is good because, this being episode 42, the theme was "Life, The Universe, and Everything", and since everything eventually comes back to pyramids, we just talk about pyramids for the rest of the show and call it good.

But while we're talking about pyramids we also ask our guests about the website and why they decided to build it, what the name means, and where did their interest in these topics originate.
In the second half of the show, we continue talking about everything(pyramids) and about the interesting fact that so many ancient and mysterious sites have unfinished blocks or statues or obelisks in the associated quarries, and how that may be a kind of "signature" of the lost civilization that (hypothetically) built so many of these sites.

Stone of the Pregnant Woman, Ba'albek, Lebanon. Until recently, this was the largest known cut stone block in the world. Estimates range from 1000-1400 tons. That's up to 2.8 million pounds. 

More recent photo. Block from the first pic is the one on top. It is sitting on top of two more giant blocks that are even larger, estimates range between 1400-1800 tons, or up to 3.6 million pounds.

Stone of the South. Somewhere between the Ba'albek quarry and the Ba'albek ruins, like it was in the process of being moved but something caused the work to stop, and it was never started back up. The lines and notches in the block are from people much more recently using the block itself as a quarry. 

The Unfinished Obelisk at Aswan Quarry, Egypt. This is the place where a lot of the high-quartz-content granite used in many ancient monuments in Egypt came from, the famous "pink granite" of Aswan. This obelisk is enormous, as can be seen by the size of the people standing on it. It is more than one third larger than the largest known standing obelisk. 

Yangshan Quarry, China. This is one of three gigantic objects in the quarry, supposedly parts of a stele that was going to be erected in a nearby city but these were abandoned as being far too large to be actually moved. We find this very hard to believe. That is a lot of work and a huge mistake, no pun intended.

Another part of the "abandoned stele" in Yangshan Quarry. Seems like somebody should have figured out "this is waaaaaay too big guys" long before they did so much work. You know? 

Huge unfinished Moai at Easter Island. 

Some of the enigmatic stone spheres of Costa Rica. The large ones are more than 8 ft. in diameter, and they are all geometrically perfect spheres.
