Stranger Than Fiction
Hey there! Hope every 1 enjoys these stranger than fiction videos I found! I just did a major overhaul on the Games Omniverse website, and it looks pretty good if I do say so myself. Looking forward to hanging with the family over the holidays. Not that I never see them. they’re just across town. But, Peanut and I are going for Thanksgiving and Christmas. It’s comforting, but it also makes me feel like I’m still a little kid, y’know.
Anyways, I’ve been researching some interesting stuff. I posted earlier about the Bermuda Triangle. While researching the anomalies in these dangerous Atlantic waters, I found out there was an area in the Pacific called the Dragon’s Triangle which also has reported a large number of wrecks for a long time. There are thoughts of volcanic or magnetic activities that influence the computations of air and sea-going crafts, but I think it is interesting to consider the areas as possible portals to other areas.
Which got me to thinking about such things. The ancient Irish believe there is a veil between our world and the realm of the sidhe (or fairies, but don’t think of cute little Tinkerbell-types. According to legend, mortals are wise to avoid some of the fair folk.) At times like Halloween, the veil thins, and all sorts of critters sneak through. Fairy rings transport people to lands where time passes differently and a single bite of food can cost a mortal their soul and their freedom.
It is interesting how food or dancing can trap mortals. In ancient Greek legends, Persephone became trapped in the underworld by eating a pomegranate seed. Signing a document with a nefarious type famously gives folks a trip to the underworld and costs a soul. Think of Faust’s journey and the epic work of Dante.
The afterlife is a tremendous impetus to peer through the worlds, indeed. Many claim cemeteries open up pathways to lead the unwary astray. After a death, reflections are avoided, since mirrors offer glimpses into the afterlife. Pyramids in Egypt and South America provide mysteries as well as treasures to plunder, and theories about their origin and meaning include their otherworldly connections.
Around the world, supposed accesses to the supernatural realm exist. Just off the top of my head, I recommend looking in on the Plaza de la Luna in Madrid, Spain, Lake Avernus in Cumae, Bay of Naples, Pluto’s Gate in Turkey, The Cave of the Crystal Sepulchre in Belize, and of course that flaming pit in Derweze, Turkmenistan. Seriously, it Derweze looks like a medieval Hell Mouth.
Here in the United States, we are not without supposed portals, including famously haunted places like the Winchester Mystery House, The Bell Witch Cave, Bobbie Mackey’s, The Mounds of Moundsville, WV, and the Storm Tunnels of Clifton, NJ, to name but a few.
As if the idea of finding a pre-existing portal into another dimension were too burdensome, some people opt to create their own. Hollywood made a movie called “Stargate.” People made a gateway into another dimension. A quick look on the internet shows how to make and utilize a stargate.
Meanwhile, the whole idea sets my heart racing. I know that the upcoming Games Omniverse interactive game will include portals.
I hope this gives you something to keep your mind busy.
Take care, my fellow explorers!
