Joe and Nathan Cowlishaw are headed to Rachel, Nevada to put a video together for an upcoming Kickstarter for an epic trip around the Desert Southwest. We also believe that we aren’t alone in the Universe! Please tag your images with #UtahUFOFest if you come across anything interesting! ;)
The Cowlishaw Brothers are hosting a planning meeting and will be serving premium pastries from Lin’s bakery on January 7th at the Cedar City Visitor Center and this flyer can be printed off to get all the details. The QR Code takes you to our event page on Facebook. We were busy passing out flyers to local businesses to promote the meeting. We have a committee networking group as well as a Facebook group dedicated to paranormal research in Southern Utah. Our official organization is called the Anomaly Conservatory which is behind the Utah UFO Festival. We realize that this phenomenon has a real impact on society from a sociological standpoint. We can build the public’s interest though community engagement and get people talking and telling their stories. Come join us for the planning meeting.
When I was a child I spent years reading up on black holes, worm holes, neutron stars and that fact that a teaspoon of matter from a neutron star could be so dense that it would weigh something like 15,000,000 lbs on earth. For such a young brain, this really jump-started my imagination into creative short story writing. Over the years, those passions have become lost to time but I have rediscovered them quite recently.
So I went and witnessed Christopher Nolan’s Sci-Fi masterpiece, Interstellar, and was deeply impressed by the visuals of intergalactic space beyond the reach of our own solar system. The movie’s main lead is, Matthew Mcconaughey, who also starred in another favorite film of mine that is over a decade old – Robert Zemeckis’s movie; Contact, which also involved Interstellar travel through a wormhole with the assistance of extraterrestrial beings. These extraterrestrials received television signals from earth and reciprocated with a codified response on how to construct a machine that would send a human into Interstellar space. Both of these movies are mind-blowing and should remind us that we as human-beings often severely underestimate the undiscovered possibilities and hidden capabilities ingrained in our own innate humanity. I am not going to offer any spoilers for these films; I just want people to see them and appreciate them for what they are. We need more cinematic content like this to foster more serious exploration into the unknown instead of shunning it and moving backwards. Humanity needs to get beyond rocket ships and airplanes. Interstellar is the sort of film that breaks the norm that most movies can’t seem to move beyond. It is a call-to-action to change our own reality before it is too late. Let’s not wait until we are on our deathbed.
Upon waking up this morning I was thinking to myself that I would like to become a fifth dimensional being traveling between the 11 dimensions of our Multiverse. We are not talking a Universe here, but multiple realities brushing up against our own perceived existence. We are not alone in the Universe (or Multiverse). Personally, I believe the Creator is at the helm of it all.
How do we know that some of the anomalous activities (paranormal mysteries) that manifest on the earth every day aren’t direct physical evidence that Earthlings coexist with neighboring dimensions? Perhaps the UFO Hotspots that have gained notoriety in different parts of the world are actually locations of port-holes for different types of inter-dimensional travelers. Maybe earth is simply another way-point for these multiple varied intelligences? Yes, I’m speculating but we need to have this dialogue occurring more frequently, every day, hence why my brother and I are organizing a UFO Festival in Southern Utah next summer. We are at a crossroads where science, revelation, and new mind-boggling technologies will force major disclosure that Humanity is not alone. We have been and are being watched, observed and studied by a variety of non-earthly visitors.
From word phrases like high-strangeness to anomalous activities; they suggest ‘things’ happening in reality that do not necessarily jive with the status quo and mainstream science. In fact, I would argue that science supports and reinforces the status quo which makes it very slanted in its own context. That is not an assumption; it is just a suggestion. I think an objective mind has to stand back and scrutinize what a majority of people would construe as reality because it may not be the truth. It takes critical thinking to encompass what may seem impossible and realize for a moment that it could be the truth. What we think is impossible may just be our reality; we just haven’t come to terms with it.
The deeper one dives into the research the more questions develop in a complex web of mysteries that often become interrelated. For an untrained or weak mind, all this “truth” would drive some people mad, or just turn them into another conspiracy nut job. The healthy way to digest the unknown mysteries of our world is to realize that they do in-fact exist and are real. We must realize that there is something going on, first-hand. The unhealthy thing to do is jump to conclusions or settle on assumptions during our quest for the real truth. The correct thing to do is to keep learning and piecing all the facts and stories into a puzzle (or a bigger picture) but never fully jumping to any conclusion.
Do I believe there is something real tied to the UFO Phenomenon? Yes! Do I suspect we have been visited on earth by ETs? Yes, I do. Do I have all the facts? Heck no; the more I learn the less I know. Have I jumped to any conclusions or assumptions? I hope not but I simply believe in keeping an open mind and believing in the HOPE that we are not alone in the Universe and that we are being visited by entities not from our planet. It’s extremely naive to think we are alone in the universe. To me, that’s like zipping back to the times of Galileo and saying we were the center of the universe and that the sun revolves around us. Back then, the status quo dictated the earth was flat which and that clearly wasn’t the case.
On Friday, October 10, 2015, my brother and I went live on Cedar City’s KSUB Radio for a two-hour segment on the up-coming Utah UFO Festival. We were only going to stay an hour but received some amazing responses from callers who had many stories and experiences to share. It looks like Iron County has had its fair share of strange mysteries involving the UFO sightings, close encounters, and strange cattle mutilations. Most disturbing of the stories on the air came from local ranchers who have lost livestock in the recent past. The amount of cattle mutilation stories we heard about really surprised me for a local radio show. It’s not the most pleasant subject matter that I care to deal with but it’s a legitimate problem that cattleman have had to deal with, especially with the financial loss. It’s a problem often blamed on predators and goes unreported or investigated. I don’t care to discuss (in detail) what gets removed “surgically” from cows who have been died as a result of this grisly act but I will let investigative journalist, Linda M. Howe, present her research in the following documentary for any of you who care to dive deeper into the info.
I’ve been researching a UFO crash site that allegedly happened near the small town of Garrison Utah. While digging around on the net for evidence, it’s hard to find a lot of info on the incident. As we seek the truth to our reality and existence, it’s good to keep an open mind and investigate any sort questionable historical event whether it be a rumor or a deeply buried secret. I think a lot of it has to rely on a hunch or intuition, if you have it. Trust your gut on these things because it is always good to keep your eyes peeled for clues. As citizen journalists, we need to tell stories and decimate interesting leads that may lead to further discovery.
There’s more information on the Utah Crash Site of 1953 (in Southwestern Utah) from a few sources:
1.) UFO Hunters of Utah: www.aliendave.com/UFOcrash_Utah1953.html
2.) Earth Files by NBC Investigative Journalist: Linda Lowe (requires subscription): earthfiles.com/
Keeping track and on course for everything with these festival, we have our first bi-monthly meeting coming up and it’s informal and to the point. We want to get to the planning stages of events to happen for the fest. Everything naturally is coming together and people in Cedar City are pretty optimistic for the fest. I’ll be on the air with KSUB Talk Radio on Friday morning to talk about plans for the fest. We have a lot to do but there is no stress involved. I’m really excited to see everything coming to fruition and taking on a life of its own.
So we have the meeting scheduled for tomorrow:
“The 2015 Utah UFO Festival (happening in Cedar City next August) is having it’s first planning meeting at 340 E. DL Sargent Drive in Cedar City, Utah this Thursday, Oct 9th at 7PM! The meeting is open to the public & anyone who is interested in getting involved with Cedar City’s first UFO Festival.”
This is a chance to see the first step. I’m doing research on line looking for a plan of actions, and steps to take to get this thing off the ground. Good things are happening!
This Thursday, October 9th, 2014 is the first planning meeting for the 2015 Utah UFO Festival scheduled with the proposed dates of August 19-23, this summer. So far, everything is on track and there’s a lot of interest in the local community to see this festival come to fruition. I’m really excited to be starting this. Southern Utah has never had a festival like this and it’s time to include our community in the greater loop of Southwestern Culture.
First meeting place is located at; 340 E. DL Sargent Drive in Cedar City, Utah this Thursday, Oct 9th at 7PM! The meeting is open to the public & anyone who is interested in getting involved with the UFO Fest! We also setup a group at the following address: www.facebook.com/groups/310520145796772/
Dr. Steven Jones, a BYU professor believes that explosives may have been used in the destruction of the World Trade Center. Interesting hypothesis and information…
Cedar City, Utah, is about to receive its very first UFO Festival this year which is in the planning phase. This is the official blog page for the festival slated to take place on August 19-23rd, 2015. We are networking with the Cedar City Tourism Bureau, The town of Cedar City, SUU, the Chamber of Commerce, and Cedar Breaks National Monument as well as the town of Rachel, Nevada, out by Area 51. Cedar City is within 3 hours driving distance to the notorious secret military installation via Southern Nevada’s Extraterrestrial Highway. What many people don’t realize is that Cedar is also located within 3 hours of Utah very own historical UFO Crash Site. Stay tuned!
