With the atmosphere being such a restless, tense and confronting place, that illusion is essential. We’ve stressed adequately as it is, after all. So let’s keep the existential crises to a minimum.
Science and technology are indeed advancing at a ridiculous rate. You can buy a new TV, and that model’s been succeeded twice before it’s even remitted to your house. That’s just the way of the world. Scientifically and medically, too, we’re making tremendous progress every single day.
Despite all of that, though, some subjects continue to baffle even the most significant thoughts of our time. The weightiness of the ocean, the most distant reaches of space… many scientists will pretend to have gone mysteriously deaf until the material is changed.
- The Bermuda Triangle: The Bermuda Triangle, presumably the most controversial and unique stretch of water on the planet. It’s located in the North Atlantic, off the coast of Florida, and extends to a loosely defined area around Bermuda and Puerto Rico. It’s got a weird reputation as the setting for diverse, mysterious disappearances of boats and aeroplanes—temperamental and unpredictable weather in the region, the absolute volume of craft. So naturally, conspiracy theorists comprehensive tend to favour the paranormal or extraterrestrial information for these withdrawals.
- Bigfoot, The Truth: The Loch Ness Monster is a fantastic and captivating concept, and it’d sure put Scotland on the map if the thing suddenly did rear out of the lake for a bite of haggis, but it’s all a little far-fetched. Bigfoot has been given the scientific name Homo sapiens cognatus, which means related to humans by blood, essentially.
- The Taos Hum: Taos in New Mexico is an odd sensation: a low humming noise. It can only scarcely be heard, and nobody can convincingly explain where it’s originating from. Apparently, “some consider unusual acoustics cause it; others assume mass hysteria or some secret, sinister purpose.
- Star Jelly: The weather can be moderately darn shonky at times. We found personally becoming used to all sorts of odd weather. The peculiar jelly-like substance is often found on grass and trees and will evaporate shortly after being seen. It’s been known since at least the 14th century, and all kinds of wild theories have been offered as to what exactly it is and where it comes from.
- Déjà Vu: We’ve all experienced the odd feeling of déjà vu before. It’s that itch you can’t quite put your finger on, that sense that you’ve definitely had a particular conversation or been to a specific place before. You can’t determine it, and you certainly can’t predict it, but you always recognise it instantly when you feel it. Science is at a failure to explain déjà vu
- Ball Lightning: Ball lightning is one unique phenomenon I’ve never observed myself. Generally, where there are storms, there’s lightning, which seldom takes the form of a mobile, intimidating-sounding ball. Instead, the ball lightning has been widely reported around the world, that it tends to last for between a second and a minute and can even travel through buildings, leaving a smell of burning sulphur in its wake.
- The Tunguska Event: The fireball came streaking towards the ground, exploding about 6 kilometres above the Earth’s surface. It gave a concussive trauma for miles around, beating people back from 64 kilometres away.
- UFOs: The presence of aliens on our planet has always been a favourite subject in communications. Movies like the Men in Black franchise act quirky beings from different planets, all inhabiting Earth entirely unbeknownst to the general public. Nobody’s leading the Men in Black movies dangerously, of course, but the fact continues that lights in the sky and full-on sightings of UFOs have been being described for decades. Classic’ flying saucers,’ cigar-shaped ships and all sorts of spacecraft besides owning been ‘seen.’
- The Hessdalen Light of Norway: Norway’s Hessdalen valley has been domestic to beacons of unexplained light. They’ve changed in colour from red to yellow and white and sparked appropriate interest from 1981-84. After that, they started to seem much more regularly. During that period, research institutions from throughout the region began ‘Project Hessdalen.’ It’s thought to be related to extraterrestrial activity.
- The Morning Glory Cloud: Clouds are something you are super-familiar with. It’s dull grey o-clock all the darn time. The Morning Glory Cloud is an Arcus cloud and a rare phenomenon. Science understands very little about it, as there’s slim-to-zero notice as to when one will appear.
- The Mystery Of ASMR: ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) is a phenomenon you might well have encountered in your travels around the internet. It’s a mild euphoric feeling, an itch in the skin, caused by specific stimuli. Stimuli tend to be whispered voices, sounds from repetitive tasks such as preparing food or fingers scratching on a surface.
- The Patomskiy Crater: The Patomskiy crater is also known as the Fire Eagle Nest or Patom crater and is situated in a remote Irkutsk region in the southeast. Right slap-bang amid a densely-forested part lies this peculiar ‘structure,’ a mound of limestone with a rounded dome 130ft high.
- Spontaneous Human Combustion: Cases have been found worldwide, in the real world and infamous works of literature. To suddenly and randomly burst into flames of your own accord, needless to say, is the sort of situation that you’d tend to have mixed feelings about. However, while scientists tend to put another source of the flames, there are connecting factors between tough to explain cases.
- The Boiling River: Nobody has ever taken the trouble to add heating to any swimming pool I’ve ever been in, friends, let me tell you. Get super-chilly appendages over a dip in the Boiling River. The Shanay-Timpishka is a tributary of the Amazon River, whose waters can reach an absurd 100 degrees! The stretch of water is unique in that it is non-volcanic. There are believed to be geothermal reasons for the heat.
