Being with the Beings, the final part of Miguel Mendonça’s trilogy on ET-human interaction, is a deep dive into the experiences of ET contact with nine people who have had long, ongoing interaction with a wide variety of beings.<br /><br />Their interviews reveal their techniques for making safe, meaningful contact with non-human intelligences. We hear how it has changed or defined their lives, why they are involved in direct contact, and what they offer the world as a result. <br /><br />We learn how channelers, hybrids and artists bring through communications from a wide variety of beings, whether written, spoken or drawn, and how their psychic abilities have been used or expanded as a result.<br /><br />The project concept came to Mendonça as a download, with the title, outline, list of participants and list of questions, including: what message would they like to share? Evidently, someone wanted to say something. So each participant shares a message from the beings, and in the case of the channels, the author interviews the beings through them. The messages and discussions are always fascinating, and often profound.<br /><br />Whether you are an experiencer or not, this book will give you more perspective on the interactions between humans and the beings, and offers a practical guide to developing your own contact protocols.

As Spaceship Earth transports us through space at an orbital speed of over sixty thousand miles per hour there is a debate over the destination of mankind’s next deep space conquest. Some propose that we go back to the Moon to reap its mineral wealth and establish colonies to pave the way for further steps to deep space. Twice since the cancellation of the Apollo lunar program NASA has tried to revive the return to the Moon goal and failed. Today NASA is preparing for sending humans to the planet Mars. That goal is also failing. It’s been nearly fifty years since mankind left the Moon and today we don’t even have the capability to send our astronauts to the space station.<br />This book presents a paper trail of letters and emails that disclose why our human space endeavors always end on a trajectory to cancellation. It also provides solutions made by concerned American aerospace engineers and the ominous warning of another deadly space disaster. <br />The reader is challenged not to remain silent after reading The NASA Letters. <br />

The Book of the Damned<br />'I think we're property.'<br />The Book of the Damned was the first published nonfiction work of the author Charles Fort (first edition 1919). Dealing with various types of anomalous phenomena including UFOs, strange falls of both organic and inorganic materials from the sky, odd weather patterns, the possible existence of creatures generally held to be mythological, disappearances of people under strange circumstances, and many other phenomena, the book is historically considered to be the first written in the specific field of anomalistics.<br /><br />New Lands<br />Fort uncovers more evidence of visitors in our skies.<br />The focus of this book, the second which Fort published, is to tweak the nose of the mainstream astronomers. Fort's slightly tongue-in-cheek hypothesis is that the Earth is located in a fixed location, and that there are invisible lands in the sky just beyond the atmosphere. He spends much of the first part of the book illustrating a number of embarrassing mistakes in celestial mechanics, and attempting to poke holes in the technique of parallax. Then he pulls together examples of falls of stones, gelatinous substances, anomalous earthquakes, fireballs, which occurred in the same location at the same time, notably in an area which he calls the 'London triangle.' Fort concludes that these manifestations are due to contiguous 'lands in the sky' which maintain a fixed location over the earth.<br /><br />As in his other books, many of the phenomena here are straight-on UFO reports. Fort gives numerous instances of 'airship' sightings, some with multiple attestations over wide regions. Many of the sightings occurred decades before humans attained heavier-than-air flight. What is striking to modern readers is the language used by the authorities to explain these sightings: bright stars, luminescent gas, mirages, ball lightning, and mass hysteria...and, just prior to WWI, reports of mysterious cylinders over south England were attributed to the Germans. So not only have there been mysterious lights in the sky long before the initial UFO flap in the late 1940s, the powers that be have likewise attempted to dismiss these reports in similar terms for a long time...<br /><br />Lo!<br />Is spontaneous teleportation the key to a new view of reality?<br />In Lo!, Fort develops a theme of teleportation as an agency for many strange phenomena. He reviews the cases of the Marie Celeste, Princess Caraboo, Cagliostro, Ambrose Bierce, Agatha Christie, and Kaspar Hauser as evidence that people can be mysteriously teleported from one point to another. The main side effect of these accidental teleportations seems to be amnesia, in fact it is the sine qua non of the better examples.<br /><br />Wild Talents<br />Poltergeists, fire-starters, telekinesis, dowsing--are humans developing new abilities?<br />This book, the last which Fort published, deals with paranormal abilities of human beings, such as poltergeists, fire-starters, telekinesis, dowsing, and so on. These accounts are often scraped from the police blotter of the newspapers which Fort used as his primary material, which gives a gritty true-crime feel to this volume. Many of these incidents center around a spooky little girl, today a familiar staple of horror films.<br />

"To invent an airplane is nothing. To build one is something. To fly is everything."<br />Otto Lilienthal<br /><br />This book covers the second and third ideas above, “To build one” and “To fly one.”<br /><br />Could I do it? Could I actually build a real airplane? Imagine how many people have asked this question. For many who did, all kinds of thoughts must have raced through their minds. All kinds of conflicting emotions began to surface. Certainly there’s doubt, and then the idea of a challenge. You start to imagine what it would be like to carry out a project of this sort. Weighing pros and cons and bouncing back and forth between I can, I can’t, and I should and I shouldn’t aren’t unusual and are to be welcomed since this forms an essential step in many decision making processes. To all who might consider a project like this, these arguments and ideas are repeated when thinking about cost, time, priorities, family considerations, self-doubt and over-confidence. Pros and cons will come easy and most find themselves close to the starting point even after much thought and discussion. What tipped the authors to the “moving ahead side?” <br /><br />Getting rid of the fear of failing <br />“If you are afraid of striking out, <br />don’t go up to bat.”<br /><br />A healthy dose of practical wisdom<br />“Unless you try something, <br />you’re forever destined to wonder, what might have been?”<br /><br />Well over ten thousand experimental airplanes, (homebuilts), have been built and are flown by individuals from all walks of life. When one asks, “Could I do it?” The answer of course is, “Do you know what end of a hammer to pick up?” If the reply is yes, you can do it. Sounds silly? Not really. Read on and see what’s involved and what it takes. This is not a book on how to do it. Rather it’s a retelling of experiences and a mentioning of considerations and things to know that are part of the whole process. Whether you are already involved in building an airplane, seriously considering it, or just curious about what’s involved, this information will answer a lot of your questions and raise a number of new ones. The authors have told many, “We wish we had this information when we first started thinking about building an airplane.”<br /><br />In this book, we’ll take you through the steps from the first time the idea of building an airplane occurs, to the information gathering stages, through decisions and construction activities, and finally through the paperwork, inspections and technicalities of making an airplane airworthy and legal to fly. And then through the initial flights and checkouts and the pure joy of being in the air: a trip from first rivet, to first flight, and through the first five years of flying. And finally, condition inspections, routine maintenance, and ongoing practices and experiences. This will not be instructions on how to build, fly, and maintain an airplane. Rather it is a collections of ideas, experiences, and considerations associated with choices, techniques, and practices for anyone considering this activity.<br /><br />For the authors, there was never a long considered goal of building an airplane and there was no eureka moment. The idea came from a chance happening, but once the seed was planted, it grew straight and strong. There are occasionally adventures in life that turn out better than expected. This was one of them.<br /><br /><br />

En la superficie de la Luna contemplamos nuestra historia. Los accidentes selenográficos constituyen un registro intacto de la formación de la zona del Sistema Solar más cercana a la Tierra. Su nomenclatura es el reflejo de los claroscuros de nuestra sociedad. De las 1586 personas honradas con un nombre de cráter, únicamente 28 son mujeres y en su mayoría pertenecen a Europa y EE. UU. Datos que evidencian que quienes han contribuido al avance de la ciencia han recibido un reconocimiento muy desigual.<br /><br />A través de las páginas de este libro, los astrónomos y divulgadores científicos Daniel Roberto Altschuler y Fernando J.Ballesteros nos invitan a reflexionar sobre este hecho y, por encima de todo, nos brindan la oportunidad de conocer mejor la vida de estas 28 mujeres.<br /><br />«Las mujeres de la Luna nos cuentan historias de amor, dolor y valor, de triunfos insólitos alcanzados por la perseverancia, y de tragedias inducidas por las circunstancias. Nos dan la oportunidad de contar historias olvidadas».<br /><br />[Contenido accesible para invidentes.]

<p>This thesis describes one of the most precise experimental tests of Lorentz symmetry in electrodynamics by light-speed anisotropy measurement with an asymmetric optical ring cavity. The author aims to answer the fundamental, hypothetical debate on Lorentz symmetry in the Universe. He concludes that the symmetry is protected within an error of 10<sup>-15</sup>, which means providing one of the most stringent upper limits on the violation of the Lorentz symmetry in the framework of the Standard Model Extension.</p><br /><p>It introduces the following three keys which play an important role in achieving high-precision measurement: (1) a high-index element (silicon) interpolated into part of the light paths in the optical ring cavity, which improves sensitivity to the violation of the Lorentz symmetry, (2) double-pass configuration of the interferometer, which suppresses environmental noises, and (3) continuous data acquisition by rotating the optical ring cavity, which makes it possible to search for higher-order violations of Lorentz symmetry. In addition to those well-described keys, a comprehensive summary from theoretical formulations to experimental design details, data acquisition, and data analysis helps the reader follow up the experiments precisely.</p>
