Deduction and experience–to dogman and back

As I get older, I have come to appreciate that older people are underappreciated.  We, the elders, are wise, and our wisdom should be respected by our juniors. Like that will happen.  But I nevertheless offer some wisdom for your consideration.  It may sound familiar to some.

✶  The spiritual realm is real.   For real.

✶  There are many invisible, incorporeal, immortal spirit beings with whom we share the cosmos.  Ask about those out-of-body experiences.

✶The spirits already chose sides– good or bad.

✶ The ones who chose bad like to see us suffer and want to make us miserable as possible for as long as possible.

✶These bad spirits have been here with us on Earth for eons.   They know us well, are smart, and are much more knowledgeable about the universe than we are.

✶    The sight of one scares us stone stupid.

Given the above, I have come to these conclusions:

➙  Bigfoot can be influenced or possessed by bad spirits.   This explains some of the weirder experiences of bigfoot.

➙ Not all bigfoot are likely to be evilly influenced.

➙ “Aliens” may be bad spirits.  These aliens would have no relation to actual aliens.

  They had plenty of time to develop advanced technology like flying saucers.  This explains why UFOs can be “summoned,” why they sometimes zoom up to observers, and why they abduct and torture people.

➙  No way dogman evolved from dogs or people.   Some  contend that dogman creatures were created by genetic engineering.   Aliens and demons perhaps being the same thing, I guess it would be possible for them to make dogmen, and it sure would explain the dogman temperament.

➙  Other stuff is out there.

Are Bigfoot Human or Not?

Are bigfoot human?  Right away the discussion devolves into a different question–what does it take to qualify as human?   As much as I’d love to dodge that one, it’s necessary to address it.

Neanderthals are humans, but not our (sub?)species, for example.    The characteristics of a group need not apply to all members of a group.  For  example, we know humans have five fingers on each hand, but being born with six fingers on each hand does not count you out.  So to speak.

Let’s just use these criteria below as a starting point.    A  no  for any criterion might disqualify bigfoot from human status.  Do sasquatches qualify as humans according to the these?

Animals > mammals > primates of the great ape department    probably

Omnivores   yes

Intelligent, as animals go   yes

Have opposable thumbs   yes

Have a spoken language   yes

Use individual names for ourselves   unknown 

Have spiritual beliefs   unknown  

Make and use tools and fire    unknown 

Know of and try to direct the future   probably 

Different bunches of sasquatches will fall into different classes, it seems likely.

Although this is far from decisive, scientific, or comprehensive, it can be a place to start.  We at least know some kinds of things we want to find out about these creatures so we can determine how eventually to classify them.


The Bodies–where are they?

Here, again, I consider the eternal question, that being what happens to all the bigfoot bodies that should by all rights be lying around in their forest or other habitat?  They certainly don’t leave them where we can find them.

Logically, there is a limited number of alternatives.  Either  they bury them, burn them, eat them, or   . . . . what else is there?   I have considered the question of whether Image result for bones skullbigfoot eat their dead here .  Dead post.

It is possible they cremate their remains.  If they do, they would probably burn them at night to conceal the smoke plume and do so in a place hidden from ordinary view, such as partway into a cave or mine, or a very low and remote spot.  We don’t know that they use fire, but they are smart enough to do so.    Absence of proof isn’t proof of absence, as they say.   Ashes would be easy to dispose of, say to dump into a river or scatter, leaving us clueless as ever.

If they eat them, they may smash and consume even the bone.  And in fact, this would fit perfectly into their lifestyle of extreme, compulsive secrecy.   We would never know.

If they bury bodies, they probably don’t just dig a hole on a pretty spot and plant their loved one.  Their need for secrecy would probably compel them to put large rocks on top of a grave, put graves under very large trees, put bodies in caverns, or otherwise effectively tree-sky-slicehide corpses.   I have heard it suggested that they may put the dead in hollows in trees, but that seems too likely to be discovered, as does putting a body underwater somewhere or in a body of water.

It’s possible that they simply dig a hole that is much deeper than we would expect.  Yet, we dig around too much ourselves for such a thing to escape our notice.

One other method of disposing of the dead is practiced by some humans–natural defleshing followed by burial of bones.   In Tibet, for example, the dead are disposed of via “sky burial.”  Bodies are left for the birds to clean the flesh from, and, after that is accomplished, the bones are buried.  It may be that instead of burying them, bones could be smashed to render them unrecognizable.platform

Comanche Indians used  a platform for a version of a sky burial, so this practice is not as foreign as it might at first sound.

Finally and most creepily, the Maori of the Chatham Islands strap some dead to a young tree and over time the tree grows to envelop the body.  Bigfoot does not do so that we know of, but it seems like something that would  appeal to them, somehow.

It’s my guess that the sasquatches do a little bit of sky burial with an added tree element.  I think they put the dead up on platforms built high in trees to be defleshed, up where we won’t see them and higher than we can climb.   Then they place the disarticulated bones up among the topmost tree branches.   Just a theory,   of course.

Now that we have drones, at least some of that will now be easier to investigate.

Update to Home Situation

I realized I had not posted a very interesting picture I took of scratches I suddenly noticed on my bedroom window screen.  They are about five feet from ground level.

I think it’s been mostly quiet since the camera was installed.  Yea!  No interesting pictures, really.

I did remove the motion alarm as I think someone was setting it off as a prank and moving the camera up and down……some pest.


May 28, 2016

Last night, I believe I heard a threatening growl outside my bedroom window seconds after I turned out the light.  Turning off the light seems to be their cue to communicate with me.    First time I have heard a growl.

Yesterday was the first time I have been to China Creek Park that I think I have been paralleled.

I think I saw one dash from one hiding spot to another, just out of the corner of my eye.  That has never happened before, either.

Yesterday at the park, I heard what sounded like peacocks, but I think I will check out sound files to be sure.


Later edit:   I realized that I went to China Creek squatching and then that night got a growl by my window.  Well, we all knew they follow you home.  But, shit.

Update, April 24, 2016

I had some small scale and recurring window taps–just one, about ten seconds after I turned off the light to sleep.  Right when I’m ready to drift off, TAP, and I am wide awake and frozen in place.

My ordered trail cam was still in transit, so I put my regular camera on the window sill, lens out, and snapped a series of flash photos of nothing, just as a shot over the bow.  I slept one night with the bedroom light on.

The next night I put the camera in the window, and left the bathroom light on to light the back yard, and turned off the bedroom light.   No taps.

The trail cam arrived, and I installed it.  trail cam    I am pleased with the photo quality–I had expected 8-bit graphics or something, but it’s decent.

When the trail cam was out there, I had no action at all.  Yea!

I needed an SD card and could not find my spare, so I brought the trail cam in and borrowed the card.  I left the cam indoors over one night, and the next night something was out in the back making some noises.  So I put the cam back now.  It appears to work.

Will update as events mandate.


I heard nothing last night.  Screws not stepped on, tape pristine.

I noted mourning doves building a nest in a niche in the eaves.  Daughter A says she hears them fluttering around outside but that they do not cause the sounds she hears.  Certainly the noises I have recently heard were NOT little birds.

Daughter A heard taps on wall last night.  She says  that, when she tells it to Eff Off, it leaves.  She went outside and told it to Eff Off out loud and not come back.  (Eye roll)

I will leave tape and screws in place.   I closed all the windows early last night, so maybe that helped.  I plan to put up lights, but wiring is an issue.

Last couple of nights….will update tomorrow or next day

We have had some trouble the last couple of nights.  Lotta noise, sound of running…

The noises woke me up at 6:30 am.  Second day in a row.    They woke up one of the daughters, too.  Knocking on the side of the house,  on the roof.  Pretty loud.

I just put a bit of cardboard with screws in it on the ground in front of the bathroom window, put packing tape here and there–hair traps or w/e, and taped a blessed palm cross and a miraculous medal to the window on the side of the house in question.    Plus did prayer and holy water all over the place here.

We will see what happens.  Because I have mixed my media, so to speak, if NOTHING happens, which is the goal, we won’t know if it’s the screw/tape , prayer, or just chance.  But I am just going for results.
