Since the emergence of the White Lotus Society in the 13th century, ordinary Chinese, particularly women and the poor, have found solace in sectarian movements whose features have remained consistent, Ownby argues. He calls the sects “redemptive societies.” They are organized around charismatic leaders who preach that salvation can be attained through cultivation of body and mind. Believers are said to acquire paranormal powers, like the ability to levitate and to cure diseases.

Haunted Hex 
The world is a haunted place. Especially if you follow the news. In my trips around the web to bring you the finest in the strange and mysterious I regularly come across a lot of ghost stories. Haunted houses, churches, graveyards, ships, schools, outhouses - you name it, it's haunted. I could fill this blog daily with just ghost stories but I like to keep this site diverse so I only use a few of them. That's why I've started Haunted Hex, a haunted clearinghouse for spooky stories.

There's only a spectral presence as of yet, but soon it will be packed with samples of shades from around the world and the wide array of links you've come to expect from the Professor. I'll still use some of the stories here but if you like to dig deep into the phantasmagorical, Haunted Hex is the place to do it.

I've added a link at the top of the links list to make it easy to find.

EXCLUSIVE: PROFESSOR HEX HAS FOUND A UNICORN! 
For immediate release to the media:

This website is proud to announce that Professor Hex, noted scholar of the unexplained and mysterious, has the body of a unicorn in his possession.

The unicorn, long believed to by a mythical creature, will join the annals of acknowledged animals thanks to the tireless efforts of Prof. Hex. "Oh she's real all right. I have to say I was stunned when I found her, but the legends are pretty accurate," says the scholar.

The unicorn's description corresponds with legend. "It's the size of a smallish horse, with a brilliant white coat, silken mane, and elegant lion-like tail. The horn is about twelve inches long. Did I say twelve? It's fourteen. It's definitely eighteen inches long."

Finding the animal was no easy task. "I tracked her for days. Since unicorns leave invisible hoofprints, I had to track her by her scat. Unicorn poop is real easy to spot - it has all the colors of the rainbow."

Unfortunately, the rare animal died in captivity. "Unicorns only eat gold so it was difficult to feed her. After my wife's jewelry was gone that was pretty much it."

The body of the beast is being kept on ice in an undisclosed location. "I will reveal her to the world when the time is right. First, I've got to get the t-shirts back from the printer and set up my Amazon store. The DVDs were delivered yesterday and are available for only $29.99."

The Professor isn't quite done shocking the world. "I'm closing in on Count Chocula. I know where he sleeps."

Hairy Hominid Hangover 
We've had the weekend to digest Friday's Bigfoot press conference. What are people saying?

Jeff Meldrum notes that the evidence for something is extremely compelling but he is not impressed with the materials presented on Friday.

This article wonders if money is the root of all Sasquatch.

The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization calls the whole affair "a high profile hoax/scam by a desperate, nearly broke, career con-man, and his new corrupt cop business partner" and hopes that this will finally be the end of Tom Biscardi. They also have a link to the complete video of the news conference.

Cryptomundo still seems to be swamped.

Make-up & Monsters points out that the photos of the 'Beer Cooler Bigfoot' look awfully familiar while Bigfoot Sightings has washed their hands of the whole affair. Meanwhile, The Heavy Stuff wonders what's next?

My personal feeling is that the story will just fade away. Hopefully, the Georgia morons and Tom Biscardi will go with it.

Bigfoot Press Conference Video 

Bigfoot Appreciation Day 
Today's the day we learn if the 'Georgia Gorilla' is the real deal or a crass hoax. Personally, I'll be surprised if we see anything other than a dog and phony show.

Prominent researcher Jeff Meldrum has expressed serious doubt on the matter while ABC News points out that the scientist performing the DNA tests is not certain he will have any results today. The media is finally catching on that these guys have already admitted to one hoax. It has also been pointed out that this case is ineligible for the Bushnell $1,000,000 Million Sasquatch Photo Challenge so what do they stand to gain from this? DVD sales? 'Bigfoot has a Posse' T-shirts?

If this is a hoax I think all concerned will come out worse for the experience. Tom Biscardi already has a sketchy reputation among serious researchers and his involvement in a hoax of this prominence will surely trash any further claims he wants to make. One of the body's claimants is a police officer and I can't imagine his rules of conduct include hoaxing the media and embarrassing the department with faux bigfeet.

And I still like Peach State Primate better.

The Peach State Primate 
You can call it the 'Georgia Gorilla' if you want. I have a feeling we'll all be calling it something a little more earthy after Friday. After all, these guys have already admitted to one hoax and in this You Tube video they come off as giant douchebags. Sadly, if this is a hoax, it will further tar the image of Bigfoot researchers for another generation.

Bigfoot Body: “Georgia Gorilla” Will Shock The World 

Stroud scientist could identify yeti 
Ian Redmond, a renowned environmentalist, was contacted by Indian scientist Dipu Marak after villagers in the state of Meghalaya reported seeing a hairy, black-and-grey ape-like creature that walked on two legs and was 10ft tall.

I just returned from seeing The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, which despite the efforts of Jet Li, Michelle Yeoh, and the very cute Isabella Leong, was simply horrible. The only bright spots were the set design and the appearance of heroic Yetis. Yes, you read that correctly - heroic Yetis. The nieces enjoyed it though.

Science (What Else?) Reveals the Secret of the Montauk Monster 
If Science had gotten off it's ass and tracked down the corpse I would be more convinced. As it is, Science is just blowing smoke. I have no doubt that the Montauk Monster has a perfectly plausible explanation (I'm leaning towards dog) but reaching conclusions from a photograph and calling the case closed is just irresponsible and, you guessed it, bad Science.

Scientists stop the ageing process 

Invisibility Cloaks on the Horizon? 
Invisibility has a long and storied occult tradition. It is one of the advanced Siddhis, paranormal powers developed through spiritual growth and attainment in Hinduism and Tantric Buddhism, and has long been associated with higher sorcery in Western Occultism.

The Rosicrucians had a rite of invisibility (the were known as the Invisible Order, after all.) Noted occultist Israel Regardie mentions a ritual of invisibility in The Golden Dawn: The Original Account of the Teachings, Rites & Ceremonies of the Hermetic Order. Regardie also had an extensive background in yoga and Eastern philosophy.

Perhaps not so surprisingly, the book Invisibility: Mastering the Art of Vanishing references a method for occult invisibility that uses the same principle as the one mentioned in the articles below - bending the light so as to reduce reflection.

Spontaneous Human Invisibility has also been noted in certain individuals, which probably comes in handy when the rent is due.

Scientists have taken another step toward the goal of rendering objects invisible using high-tech cloaks that redirect light.

I received an email from Steve Savio confirming this information. Steve also told me that after Reiter left his mother's home in Connecticut he went to Michigan and then on to California. He once told her he was planning on voting in an upcoming election and when asked how he could vote without being a citizen he told her "he had it all taken care of."

Hex Correspondent Ian noted that Reiter/Rockefeller reminded him of Tom Ripley, Patricia Highsmith's amoral murderer, identity thief and star of several books and films. Curiously, Steve Savio points out in this article that Reiter was a film buff and would speak of remaking Hitchcock films. Hitchcock adapted Highsmith's Strangers on a Train in 1951.
