An "Angel" in Indonesia?
A friend of mine who frequently reads this blog [Frank John Reid] sent me a video that's going around You-Tube currently about an alleged filming of an "angel" manifestation in Jakarta, Indonesia [c. last fall]. Although the film is not very evidential, and could rather easily be a hoax for no more information that's given [even on a brief foray into Google], the pictures are at least interesting enough not to bore you. But the reason that I'm writing about it at all is that, once again, we are demonstrating that our establishment commentators are in fact Homo Unsapiens, and the irresponsible media is happy to go along. In other words, I'm, as usual, angered by the stupidity of our species and am engaged in a bit of Rant-Therapy. But the pictures are at least diverting [and maybe even anomalous] so you might be able to put up with this.
The incident allegedly takes place at night [seemingly after closing hours] at a modern storefront of some kind in Jakarta. The footage is stated to be from an [assumed] outdoor security camera, which would be a vital piece of information to determine. In the shot above, a pedestrian has just strolled by the scene looking completely normal [now out of the scene].
The manifestation of the lightform then begins. It is a lightening of the area in front of the store window on the sidewalk. It could be true that this moment is only some slight increase in the camera sensing light, but given the location of the coming lightform, it is possible that a slight light increase is real.
Then, boom, there the "thing" is --- someone with better film copy and equipment can probably see more of this "coming-to-be" --- and you DO get the feeling of a fast-but-gradual emergence --- but this is the best that I can do. Note that the store window is now more illuminated.
The roughly butterfly shape is slightly more defined in this next iteration, but asymmetrical. As I have a prejudice for symmetry, I instinctively don't like this, but realize that I am being stupid if I let that bother me.
The thing takes a more refined form with a clear nucleus and a gap in one "wing". MAYBE the so-called "tail" is real; maybe it's just more light on the sidewalk.
The thing fattens up a bit [or in hoax terms, the translucent lamp cover is tilted more towards the reflective surface], and becomes symmetrical. The "tail" pulls up towards the "body".
Now the thing begins to compress or "squat". It's like it is going to flex and "bounce" out of there. This whole business takes place in two seconds or less.
Though more refined, this shot is "thinner" and the "tail" is back.
Thinner yet as the image again slightly compresses.
Now the thing begins to pulse larger, with pretty nice form.
Getting ready to make its move.
Lift-off. Looking quite like the first manifestation.
Moving. Notice the small gap between "wing-to-right" and that reflective bit of sidewalk that has been messing with our eyes earlier.
Condensing and going.
Mere lightfuzz moving out, up and right. Note decrease in ground illumination.
End of game. Our friend is just about out of the frame to the upper right. Sidewalk has returned to shadow. Shortly, a handful of men run across the street to the scene... one has a flashlight. A claim was that one or more were security people from the other side of the street.
So... well, first let me discharge my scream therapy.
1). The Huffington Post entitled this something like video of angel called hoax. Their "authority" for this was UPI, who apparently said that they believed it was a hoax based on You-Tube comments!! I mean --- Lord help us! What absolute anti-scientific or even intellectual crap.
2). But Homo Unsapiens was on the way to the rescue. The comments which sunk the "angel's boat" were that "we have ONE STATIC PICTURE". On the ONE STATIC PICTURE "a picture of the alleged light being was mounted". Damm. Wouldn't you like to forget your gospel spirituality just for a moment and find these people and rearrange their faces? --- sorry --- one, two, three .... and that was it; end of story.
3). Probably the worst thing about all of that was that UPI and Huffington Post printed that crap, with the HP featuring it in their title.
4). Another commenter whom they are happy to quote says: a). "nothing in that lobby moves except it". DUH --- the store is apparently closed and the event took TWO SECONDS! [you dork ... whoops, sorry]. and b). "then suddenly after it disappears, we see a man who is walking by apparently unbaffled "... you know the stupidity which occurs through denial is unlimited. That idiot [whoops, sorry] either is a braindead fool [SORRRRY, just can't help it on stuff like this], or he watched the video backwards. His "analysis" has the sequence of the video completely wrong!! HOW is that possible?
5). And once again HP printed the debunking garbage.
So, did an angel or anything mysterious appear in that Jakarta "mall" area? We really have no idea. Certainly UPI and HP don't. At an absolute minimum, whether the camera footage was from an outdoor security camera would have to be known. If it was not, then the rigging of such a light manifestation on a personal camera [with some cleverness] could probably be done easily, and then all one would need would be a few friends to run across the street immediately to the area with a flashlight.
If it WAS the outside security camera, then the hoax gets tougher, especially if you didn't have an inside guy capable of getting the official cassette to work on. The fake probably would have to include a rather large lightsource to blast on the opposite side of the street and somehow giving the impression of something suspended in the air. It seems to me to be a little more of an "explanatory difficulty" if the camera were a formal security system one. And then we'd need a few "witness testimonies" wouldn't we?
But we seem to have none of that --- so off to the gigantic gray-basket this goes. Some people are claiming to see a humanoid inside the lightform. Someone even claimed to see it turn its head. I don't see anywhere near enough detail for anything at all, let alone that. COULD it have been some sort of "intrusion" from elsewhere? Until we have a lot better information, why not? There are certainly bunches of incidents in UFO files which smack of such a possibility.
Of one thing I'm fairly sure: this screwed up species of ours is never going to discover answers to any of these "forbidden categories" things until we stop printing the nonsense which spews forth from certain "Analysts'" heads. There may be a hidden reason why "analysis" and "anal" are of the same spelling.
Sorry.... well, maybe not TOO sorry.
