It is an odd and chilling feeling to see Hurricane Sandy called a superstorm. It's going to go down in history as Superstorm Sandy. I didn't coin the word 'superstorm' but the Coming Global Superstorm, certainly brought it into the language. And the movie based on it, the Day After Tomorrow, fixed the idea of such storms in the public...

The news media has been calling Hurricane Sandy a 'superstorm.' It is not that, not yet. It is not as intense as storms that will form later in the process of climate change. We have already passed the point of no return on this issue. It is going to happen. In part, this is because the interglacial during which human population has expanded to...

Let me start by saying that I am not advocating either candidate. Unknowncountry is a website for people of every political persuasion, so we keep our political views to ourselves. However I want to discuss an issue which I feel is the first one we should consider when we decide which candidate we are going to chose, each of us by his own lights...

I have just come past the most fearsome experience of pain I have ever known, and one that counts among the most profound agonies a human being can experience. I endured this agony for three weeks, until finally I got my surgery. The pain is still there, but it is tolerable and manageable, and will fade over time.

One of the great blessings of being human is that we walk upright. I don't think it's something that evolved over any length of time; we just started doing it. As a result the human back is kind of thrown together. Or maybe if somebody designed us, they were too busy with other things or at war or whatever, and just didn't get the back done right.

Over the next couple of years, two things will happen: first, the planetary environment is going to tank; second, a few of us are going to find our way toward the future by using an ancient tool in a very new way. This tool is meditation, and the new use of it involves simultaneous meditation in groups. These groups do not need to be in the same...

A few weeks ago, I published a journal entry called 'Change of Being.' I would like to return to this subject and describe what has become an ongoing process of inner change. I was on Coast to Coast week before last with George Knapp when I had the first experience of just how much I have changed. He announced that Tony Scott had committed suicide...

There are now a number of plausible end-of-the-world scenarios, enough to justify thinking seriously, and in a new way, what such an event might mean to us. It's easy to say, oh, well, that's it, then, we'll just be gone. That might not be the whole story. Before I discuss why I think that, I'd like to run through a few of these scenarios. I'll...

I have been doing the 'Compassion Walk' meditation that is in our subscriber section, and am finding that it offers a profound change of energy. For those of you who are not subscribers, it's quite simple. You do it by directing your attention to your physical sensations and away from your mind while walking among other people, say in a mall...

I have not added a journal entry in months. The reason is that I have been at a loss about what to say. But I'm going to try, at least to put down a few paragraphs about what's been happening to me. Outwardly, I've been living my life, writing, working on this website, interacting with friends, all the usual things. Inwardly, though, something...

In December of 2007, I had a brief sighting of a UFO outside our bedroom window. It was at low altitude and moving with stately ease into rushing storm clouds. The object was brightly lit, at low altitude, and disappeared into the clouds before I could get a picture. This sighting was accompanied by the most complicated close encounter experience...

Last week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited Washington and former Mossad Chief Meier Dagan appeared on 60 Minutes to warn that war with Iran would be a mistake. Meanwhile, it has been pointed out by numerous commentators that no country which has acquired nuclear weapons since World War II has used them, and that nuclear arsenals...

Some of the late Barry Goldwater's UFO-related correspondence has recently been released, and it makes shocking reading, for a reason that I will detail in a moment. After I read it, though, I found myself thinking about the present state of the UFO mystery, how we have gotten here, and what has been lost. When Goldwater's first letters...

Beginning in March of 2011, people began posting videos on YouTube of odd sounds that seemed to have no source. I first became aware of them about a month ago, when Anne and I briefly heard one filling the air, a great roaring that died away as suddenly as it had begun. It was just enough to cause us to take notice, but we thought no more of it. A...

Last week, this journal started with the paragraph: "My new book, Solving the Communion Enigma is being murdered in the bookstores. There is no other way to say it. Try finding it in a bookstore." Now it turns out that it is moving out of the stores very well, and that's thanks to you. There have also been some good reviews of it, for...

It is a late hour. Tomorrow is Christmas Eve. I sit listening to Rachmaninoff's Vocalise sung by Anna Moffo, which I would listen to on nights when I felt that the visitors were coming. They would cast such a spell over me on those nights, with their strangeness and their longing. They seemed far from home, but not physically; rather, from a home...

My novella the Christmas Spirits is now available as a hardcover. You can watch a video about it on my YouTube Channel, and it's available for Kindle in the US and the UK. It is an updating of a book I have loved deeply all of my life, Dickens' a Christmas Carol.

Over the past 6 weeks 5,387 people signed a petition asking for disclosure of the government’s knowledge of and communications with ETs. 12,078 signed a request that the White House formally acknowledge that extraterrestrial intelligence is engaging with the human race. Last week, the White House responded, saying that there was no evidence...

What is grace? It is said to be the kindness of God and the laughter of God, sustaining and freeing. When we pray, we are generally asking for something, but true prayer is an innocent opening of being—and, inevitably, that is an opening to what is called grace. Grace must fill the universe. It must be extremely energetic, more so even than...

We wait for economic recovery, but it doesn’t come. Millions of us remain unemployed. Whole neighborhoods, street after street, are abandoned, their residents victims of foreclosure. Washington is paralyzed. But the problem isn’t ours alone. Europe is on the brink of fiscal collapse. The Chinese stock market is teetering, and the...

What if our visitors finally land? When I say 'land,' I do not mean that in any conventional way. I don't think that they are aliens from another planet--or, if such beings are a factor in what is happening in our world, they are not the major factor. What is happening is so vast and complex that it has never really been fully described....

It was on this day ten years ago that Unknowncountry.com became a daily news site. We found ourselves publishing story after story on that day, about the horrifying events that were unfolding. Since then, we have not gone a single day without publishing fresh news stories. We concentrate on science, but with a uniquely open-minded perspective...

Budd Hopkins died on August 21 after a years-long struggle with cancer. He will be little remarked outside of the small community of witnesses and researchers who care about the great enigma that is the hidden center of the human experience, but the work he did in this world and on behalf of mankind was of incalculable importance and I hope one...

The United States is the only country in the world besides Denmark that has a debt ceiling, and Denmark's is intentionally set so high that it will never be reached. So why do we have one? Historically, it was put in place during World War I so that congress could quickly deal with the need to rapidly increase debt. It was never intended to be...

Last week, the Australian government announced that it has "lost" its UFO files. Thus it joins the United States, which "lost" all the files relating to the Roswell AFB dating from 1947 through 1952, and the United Kingdom, which recently announced that it has "lost" all the files relating to the Rendlesham...

On April 25, famed physicist Stephen Hawking warned that aliens, if they came here, might prove to be dangerous. He said, “We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet. I imagine they might exist in massive ships, having used up all the resources from their home...

I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist, but I do think that there is a long-standing conspiracy against me, and I am worried about it. Just for the record, I am going to list some of the things that have happened that seem to me to be the result of attempts by sinister forces to sabotage my life. 1. Two men visited my personal physician...

A few days ago, an astute reader informed me that there were differences between the new edition of the Key and the one I published in 2002. The 2002 edition, it turns out, was secretly censored by unknown parties. Crucial changes were made, that had the effect of obscuring and diminshing the message of the book. If you have the old edition, you...

So many people want so badly to believe either that there is nothing unusual about the weather, or at least that climate change is part of a cycle that we cannot do anything to affect. They have been comforted by lying talk show hosts and politicians who are backed by numerous companies foolishly dedicated to protecting their current profits...

Last week the FBI released a series of memos covering UFOs and government reaction to them. Among these is one that is truly extraordinary, to the FBI Director from an agent called Guy Hottel that states unequivocally that three "flying saucers," each containing three small humanoid bodies, were recovered by the US Air Force in...
