The invasion of the phantom marksmen: 1952-1954
On March 17, 1952, the window of a trolley car in Philadelphia shattered for no apparent reason. In Great Britain in May of 1952, something shattered the windshield of a car driven by a girl applying for her driver's license, on the Scunthorpe-Doncaster road in Linconshire England. No pellet or anything else was ever found that could have caused the damage. On that same English road on May 5, the windshield of a truck was suddenly shattered. No pellet, stone, or culprit was discovered...

The mystery of mammoth tusks with iron fillings
A giant meteor may have exploded over Alaska thousands of years ago, shooting out metal fragments like buckshot, some of which embedded in the tusks of woolly mammoths and the horns of bison.

A clockwork of ghosts
In quantum terms the device with which you measure a phenomenon has a direct correlation with not only your anticipation but with your result. Perhaps we have such individuated mechanisms that while not psychological in the strictest sense of measurement but with the context of relationships in our conceptual models, can provide us with unintended results, as we have attenuated our perception toward a bias that allows these interior relationships to manifest in cognition toward an sensate external manifestation, if there is something outside of our visual field that is already present in a theoretical perpetuity outside of the purview of what we term time. Such, perhaps are ghosts...

Researcher: Moses was tripping at Mount Sinai
"And all the people perceived the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the voice of the horn, and the mountain smoking." Thus the book of Exodus describes the impressive moment of the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai. The "perceiving of the voices" has been interpreted endlessly since these words were first written. When Professor Benny Shanon, professor of cognitive psychology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, reads the verse, he recalls a powerful hallucinatory experience he had when he visited the Amazon and drank a potion made from a plant called ayahuasca.
