TGR 05.15.17. Mind Mysteries, “Globsters”, and Social Panics

This week on The Gralien Report, after wishing a belated Happy Mother’s Day to our friends and listenership, we take a moment to discuss the necessity for “looking inward”, and how we develop ourselves spiritually, and as conscious beings, through thought and meditation. Then getting to news, we examine the latest going on in the world, before turning our attention to the latest unusual Tweets from former Blink 182 guitarist Tom DeLonge, who seems to have turned his attention from UFOs to politics, saying he believes he has inside info, or at very least, what he calls a “prophecy” that Donald Trump will be impeached. Where is he getting his “prophetic” information?

Turning our attention to the “Missing Persons Bureau”, we examine the eerie disappearance of three boys who, in 1967, purportedly entered a “labyrinth-like” cave system… and never returned. Questions linger over whether the missing children had actually entered the cave at all, or if there could have been other factors, such as an abduction. No conclusive evidence of what happened to the boys ever was found, and their disappearance remains a mystery today.

Elsewhere, a “mystery carcass” that appeared recently in Indonesia, and one of the humorous reasons it may have been mistaken for the remains of a giant squid. In fact, there have been several mysterious carcasses that have washed ashore over the years, which were at times believed to have been an undiscovered variety of giant octopus. In almost every case, these “Globsters” turn out to be the remains of whales… but how do they appear to be covered in white hair, and other odd features? We examine the science behind the Globster phenomenon, and also a number of the notable instances where they have appeared.

Finally, we look at recent eerie reports of a strange, metaphysical Bigfoot-like creature that purportedly “whispers” to people in Malaysia. What are the reasons for cultural beliefs in creatures like this, and how are they related to the idea of “social panics”?

  1. Taken from =Dialectical Materialism (A. Spirkin)

    Prev Chapter 1. Philosophy As A World-View And A Methodology

    “It may appear to some scientists that they are using the logical and methodological means evolved strictly within the framework of their particular speciality. But this is a profound delusion. In reality every scientist, whether he realises it or not, even in simple acts of theoretical thought, makes use of the overall results of the development of mankind’s cognitive activity enshrined mainly in the philosophical categories, which we absorb as we are absorbing our own natural that no man can put together any theoretical statement language, and later, the special language of theoretical thought. Oversimplifying the question a little, one may say without such concepts as property, cause, law or accident. But these are, in fact, philosophical categories evolved by the whole history of human thought and particularly in the system of philosophical, logical culture based on the experience of all fields of knowledge and practice.”

  2. Was going through the old Gralien shows, again!, and had these thoughts on Stephen Hawkins saying philosophy is dead and on why ufo’s only appear to weirdo’s

    First off almost all theories of science assume our minds create reality. This was not a scientific proposition but a philosophical one.

    “Transcendental idealism, founded by Immanuel Kant in the eighteenth century, maintains that the mind shapes the world we perceive into the form of space-and-time.”

    Last- translation of Hawkins in human words:
    ROBOT VOICE: I’M A WEIRDO WHY DON”T THEY SHOW THEMSELVES TO ME???
