(Spies, Lies and Polygraph Tape) — And now we enter the crazy spin-zone, where fantasy, nightmarish horrors and strange unrealities merge with speculative science.
“Yes, Virginia, there is a phenomenology problem. Pick up: the core of the problem includes anomalous interactions with anomalous intelligence. Most scientists would agree that such phenomena — if taken seriously — would warrant a radical restructuring of our worldview. We are afforded the opportunity of rethinking, if not recreating, our world — while adhering to certain boundary conditions.” — Dan Throop Smith, reflecting on discussions with CIA man Ron Pandolfi
It has been reported that something strange is haunting a remote ranch in Utah, a property now owned by the man behind the latest addition to the International Space Station.
Robert Bigelow — owner of Bigelow Aerospace and the sister company Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies, where the Federal Aviation Administration advises persons who have encountered unexplained phenomena should file a report — purchased the allegedly haunted ranch in the 1990s and stationed various science team members to observe and report on the paranormal activities that allegedly disturbed the previous owner and some of his neighbors in the region.
At the heart of the haunting at the now-legendary Skinwalker Ranch is an apparent intelligence, covertly playing cat and mouse games with anyone willing to spend time on the property.
In one notorious incident, a member of Bigelow’s science team reported an encounter with “a multiple intelligence manifested in the form of a dark shadow or cloud-type effect which had an unusual turbulence effect when it shrunk to a point and disappeared.”
During the alleged incident, according to Dr. Eric Davis, who was Bigelow Skinwalker Ranch team leader from 1999-2001, the unknown intelligence — described as “voices … monotone males with a very terse, threatening tone … multiple voices that spoke in unison telepathically” — intruded upon the mind of a helpless researcher.

Although Alexander devotes only a few pages to the Skinwalker Ranch phenomenon in his book, he notes several key points underlying the mystery.
“It was the UFO reports that attracted Bob’s [Bigelow] attention to that property,” Alexander writes, “However, what happened there did not fit into any neatly organized box.”
The variety of Skinwalker Ranch experiences reflect stories of other odd experiences recounted by author Jim Schnabel in his book “Remote Viewers,” about America’s paranormal psychic spy programs.
Schnabel tells the story of how several scientists from Lawrence Livermore Nuclear Laboratory were haunted by a bizarre series of events following a test of psychic Uri Geller. A film made of Geller had captured what appeared to be an anomalous radiation penetrating the lab wall. Playback of the audio tape made during the experiment startled the researchers with a strange metallic-sounding voice.
Soon other oddities affected the researchers in during their personal time away from the lab. The diverse strangeness that haunted the researchers included manifestations of miniature flying saucers hovering in the air, bizarre animals and a floating arm with a hook for a hand.
Similar strangeness was happening at the ranch.
“In the years that followed [Bigelow’s purchase of the ranch] many extraordinary events would happen with our highly skilled scientists observing,” writes Alexander, “If there was one common factor to those events, it was that they had nothing in common with one another. As bizarre as many of the incidents were, they tended to be totally unique.”
Alexander proposed one possible explanation for the odd reports: Precognitive Sentient Phenomena, or PSP.
“The precognitive sentient phenomena concept suggests that there is some external controlling agent that initiates these events that are observed and reported,” writes Alexander, “It appears as though the agent not only determines all factors of the event, but is already aware of how the observers or researchers will respond to any given stimuli.”
The key to catching the Skinwalker comes from another idea proposed by Alexander, that UFO (and other anomalous experiences) are projected directly into the brains of the the observers, manipulating their experience of reality.
To catch this Skinwalker, it takes a thief, and to steal the secrets of a precognitive sentient phenomena with penetrating telepathic mind-controlling illusions, we may need a pair of entangled brains separated by a vast distance.
The idea I am proposing here is based upon Kit Green’s mindtap technology: fMRI brain scanning equipment, the state of the art in human technology-based mental penetration.
As it would be highly impractical (and phenomenally expensive!) to base an enormous fMRI machine at Skinwalker Ranch, to monitor brain activity of an experiencer of the phenomenon, another less direct method is required.
A few years ago Dr. Green proposed a test to use fMRI brain scanning technology to observe the entanglement of human brains — quantum mind mediated telepathy, an idea shared by Chinese researcher Shan Gao. A similar idea put to the test by a group at the National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences, in Bangalore, India, reported positive results.
Based upon Green’s description of one proposed fMRI telepathy experiment, having set a baseline for the normal entanglement of a pair of carefully matched human brains, an experiment could be devised to place a human receiver inside the magnet of the brain scanner during a deep mind-to-mind state of entanglement with a remote sender.
The sender would be placed as bait, potentially in harm’s way, as near to the core of the Skinwalker Ranch phenomenon as possible. The key to this experiment is to entice the source of the various reported phenomena — the suggested Precognitive Sentient Phenomenon — to act upon the sender in such a way as to join the entangled brain states of sender and receiver.
Assuming the risk that the Skinwalker phenomenon might simply break the entangled brain state of the sender on the ranch in Utah and the receiver who is inside the magnet at a research laboratory some distance away, the best case would register changes in the receiver’s brain scan induced by the effect of the Skinwalker source on the sender. If this were possible, then we could potentially capture some of the mind-altering signatures of the Precognitive Sentient Phenomenon on the human brain. Captured signatures could potentially be highly revealing of the nature of the source affecting human perception.
