Reality Checking with Brent Raynes

What’s happening at Yellowstone?

In this issue’s interview featuring Dr. Chet Snow, he describes how in the last six months there has been “significant earthquake activity in Yellowstone Park.” A site known as Steamboat Geyser erupted twice in the Spring (March 26 and April 27) of this year, while it had done so only twice in 2002 and once in 2000, which had followed a nine-year hiatus. Porkchop Geyser erupted on July 16, 2003, which had been the first time since 1989. Other geysers have reportedly been erupting with greater frequency and regularity also, as well as some with greater thermal pressure. However, officials don’t seem to feel that these recent events reflect “magma ascent or increased likelihood of volcanism at Yellowstone Park” (refer to:

Meanwhile, on September 29, 2003, at about 8:35 p.m., a man and his wife were driving west on U.S. 20 about 10 miles east of West Yellowstone, Montana, close to a volcanic area known as the Fountain Paint Pots, when they may have observed a possible “piezoelectric” light display. They were traveling around 30 miles an hour with windows rolled down when they saw a mysterious red light. It was described as “completely circular” and “about six inches in diameter.” It flew across the road in front of them, from left to right (south to north) about 3 feet off of the ground and about 30 feet ahead of their motor vehicle. It flew in a straight trajectory but was soon lost from sight in among some trees. No sound was heard. (1)

Some of you UFO trivia buffs may recall reading somewhere about photographs taken at Yellowstone Park that showed inexplicable orbs. I think John Keel or perhaps Brad Steiger had written something on this years ago. I tried to locate this item before press time, but was unsuccessful. In addition, there are stories about inexplicable noises. For example, reportedly witnesses over the last century have heard a sound rather like a giant pipe organ. (2) The Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River is said to be the site where witnesses occasionally hear chanting sounds. Legend has it that it’s the death chant of Crow Indians who escaped white soldiers by going over the falls on a raft, preferring to take their lives into their own hands rather than being slaughtered by the soldiers.

Crap falling from the sky in New Zealand?

Across the New Zealand landscape homes are apparently being splattered by large quantities of what resemble some kind of feces. In the town of Huia a plumber named Murray Norris returned home from work on the night of September 26, 2003, to find what resembled feces splattered on the west wall and roof of his house. Reportedly some patches of the brown stuff was about 10 feet wide. However, curiously enough, it didn’t smell!

The New Zealand Civil Aviation Authority has been able to rule out aircraft toilets as the culprit. Tests on a sample from Takapu showed no chemicals common to such toilets. Another theory being bandied about is that the “muck” comes from a large bird. “If it’s a bird, then it’s either a really big one, or it has a serious problem,” Norris stated. (4) Frogs and frog eggs falling from the sky in Connecticut?

On September 19, 2003, Primo D’Agata of Berlin, Connecticut, thought he heard hail smashing down on his porch. The last remnants of Hurricane Isabel were passing through the region at the time. Stepping outside to investigate, D’Agata found tiny gelatinous eggs with dark spots in the middle. He believed that the eggs were from frogs, but scientists and naturalists speculated that the eggs/frogs may have been swept up from North Carolina or some other warmer region (frogs reportedly wouldn’t be laying eggs that time of the year in Connecticut). A naturalist who examined the eggs did offer that they resembled amphibian eggs. Reportedly, a few appear to have what looks like a tail, so D’Agata said he was just going to wait and see what hatches. (4)

Works for me!

Cosmic Signs and Portents?

There’s been lots of talk about the possible significance of the “Harmonic Concordance” which began November 8th with a lunar eclipse. By the time you read this, it will have already happened. But when it comes to cosmic events the recent rash of major solar flare activity has just about taken center stage. Senior Science Writer Robert Roy Britt (11/03/03, Space.Com) writes: “The Sun cut loose with three severe flares in less than 24 hours through Monday morning, bringing to nine the number of major eruptions in less than two weeks. Scientists have never witnessed a string of activity like this.”

Dr. Chet Snow shares with us this information from a Russian source. He feels they may be “way ahead of us” in areas of science and paranormal study and understanding. He cites the work of one Dr. Dmitriev whose scientific studies reportedly have shown that the planets of our solar system are undergoing various changes–stronger magnetic fields, increased luminosity, atmospheric changes, and apparently on Uranus and Neptune recent pole shifts! According to this alleged Russian source also, overall volcanic activity on our planet has “increased 500 percent since 1975.” Since 1973, earthquake activity has reportedly increased by 400 percent. In comparison, allegedly natural disasters have increased 410 percent between 1963 and 1993.

An excerpt of this information reads:

“Very, very few people are aware of the work that is being done in the Russian National Academy of Sciences in Siberia, specifically in Novosibirsk, where they are doing this research. They’ve come to the conclusion that the only possible thing that could be causing this energetic change all throughout the solar system is that we are moving into an area of energy that is different - that is higher. The glowing plasma at the leading edge of our solar system has recently increased 1000 percent.

Now, check this out. The Sun itself has a magnetic field, of course, and that magnetic field creates an egg around the solar system, which is known as the heliosphere. The heliosphere is shaped like a teardrop, with the long and thin end of the drop pointing in the opposite direction from the direction that we’re traveling. It’s just like a comet, where the tail is always pointing away from the Sun.

The Russians have looked at the leading edge of this heliosphere, and they have observed glowing, exciting plasma energy there. This plasma energy used to be 10 astronomical units deep (an astronomical unit is the distance from the Earth to the Sun, 93,000,000 miles). So ten astronomical units represents the normal thickness of this glowing energy that we used to see at the front end of the solar system.

Today, that glowing plasma has gone to 100 astronomical units deep. Although Dmitriev’s paper does not give an exact timeline, we can assume that this increase happened in the same 1963 to 1993 period as the increase he found in natural disasters. Whenever it happened, that’s a 1,000 percent increase in the overall brightness of the energy at the front end of the solar system.

And this means that the solar system itself is moving into an area where the energy is more highly charged. That higher-charged energy is in turn exciting the plasma and causing more of it to form, so you see more luminosity, more brightness. This energy is then flowing into the Sun, which in turn emits the energy and spreads it out along its equatorial plane, which is called the Ecliptic.

And this is conscious energy that is changing how the planet works, how it functions, and what kind of life it supports. The harmonics of the DNA spiral itself are altering. That’s the real, hidden cause of spontaneous mass evolutions in previous epochs of time.

All this is happening all at the same time, and it’s all working up to a crescendo where there is going to be a sudden shift.

In other words, we will get to the point where we are so far into the new level of energy that there will be a sudden expansion of the basic harmonic wavelengths that the Sun emits as it radiates energy out of itself. This increase in energy emission will change the basic nature of all matter in the solar system. The planets are pushed slightly farther away from the Sun and the atoms and molecules that make them up actually expand in terms of their physical size.”
