Missing Children, the shadow behind the numbers [UPDATED 5/25/12]

I was recently thinking on the issue of missing children and made a video that commented upon the enormous number of children that are initially reported as missing.

There needs to be some additional work done on this piece of "history".  The numbers may seen daunting and the video is meant to be alarming but there is much more to the story than what is present within the FBI statistics for 2010 (presumably the last year for which they have complete information).

It just so happened that the case of this missing boy:

Etan Patz, made his way back into the news with a renewed search for clues in his case.  Andy Colvin would call this story an "unsolvable".  These stories according to Andy are brought up in the controlled media to remind people that some things are never solved instilling a sense of inevitability and ultimately apathy into the population.  If you'd like to hear Andy list some types of stories that appear in the news media, and their purposes please have a listen to this show.  That is an episode of Media Monarchy, which is produced by James Evan Pilato.
[UPDATE May 25,2012]  There has been an arrest in the case of Etan Patz.  It should be noted that this comes after 33 years.  What is interesting here is that the man arrested for the death of Patz is Pedro Hernandez, a man with a "long psychiatric history".  In custody he is on suicide watch.  Isn't it a bit bizarre that in many of these types of cases the authorities find a convenient "crazy" person that did it.  Pedro says he lured Etan with the promise of a soda, choked him to death and dumped the body in the trash a block and a half away.  He gave no motive.  Authorities noted that it was "unlikely" that the body would be recovered.  Is this an "unsolvable" solved?  I don't think so because the guilt of this guy is questionable and even if he did do it the body is not going to be found and there will be open questions left unanswered.

I would like this blog post to be a reminder of the lost and missing children.  Such as:

Madelaine McCann, who's story may be much more deep and dark than even the horror of her abduction/loss.

Kyron Horman, missing from a Portland school.  Still missing with no clues as to his fate.  Odd circumstances surrounding his step-mother and father and their divorce.

Susan Robin Bender

Akeyla Warren

What are some of the accepted "facts" when it comes to missing children?  One is that most abductions are carried out by a family member, notably a non-custodial parent.  That is actually only 0.1% of the number of missing children, which is only slightly more than the 0.08% that are abducted by strangers, which statistically are equal.

What is really astounding is that the vast majority of these children, over 97%, are classified as runaways.  Now let us just assume that the numbers are accurate and ask this question; what is going on in the homes of so many children that causes HALF A MILLION kids to run away from them?  If this was the absolute reality then it is a national crisis that needs to be addressed.

I have good questions with regard to the numbers as presented and the ultimate resolution of the cases of missing children.  Given that the overwhelming majority of cases are "resolved" as runaway one wonders what exactly is known fact in regards to the status of children as runaway.  Is the child located, at home or away?  Is their status determined by default if there is no obvious evidence of a crime?  What if the reality of the situation is much darker?

People who hear the number, over five hundred thousand, in 2010, they may initially be appalled but when they look further they may feel as though this issue is not one that is that important since the FBI happily tell you that more cases are removed from the system every year than that are entered into the system.  So that means a negative resolve rate.  Presumably hundreds of nonexistent children are found every year by the FBI.  That is how good they are!  The final number of "open" cases for all missing people in 2010 was 85,820 and of them 38,505 were juveniles.

One needs to look a little deeper to see something rather disturbing here.  During the decade of the 90's the entry rate exceeded the clear rate and for that decade there were a total of 40,000 + cases that were not cleared.  That means that even by their own numbers for the decade of the 90's over 40,000 missing people were never accounted for.  Now an interesting thing happens starting in the year 2000.  The number of cleared cases exceeds the number of entries, for every year through to 2010.  That is where the non-existent children come into play.

This issue should be of more concern especially in light of the various things that have happened in the past and present day regarding the use of children by pedophile monsters and horrific abuse in other ways.

McMartin preschool was the epicenter of a huge case of molestation with "Satanic" elements that was a part of the "Satanic Panic" of the 1980's.  Ultimately, after costly trials, no one faced any time in jail and there was a kind of backlash against the notion of molestation as espoused by children.  This case served as a foundation for the forming of the False Memory Syndrome Foundation and the notion that children can be easily manipulated into believing something happened to them even when it didn't.  And the further notion that "false memories" are a reality and relatively easy to induce.  There seems to be little evidence for this.
It should be noted that the founders of the FMSF were all people who had been "falsely" accused of child abuse.  According to Alex Constantine the FMSF is infiltrated or controlled by elements of the intelligence community.  You can read a great piece which develops this theme right here.  One has to wonder at the exact motivation of a group that is determined to help people accused of child abuse by making the accuser appear to be the victim not of abuse but of "false memories".
There are also pedophile scandals which have come and gone.  One of the most infamous is the case of Johnny Gosch.

During the course of the trials and tribulations of Johnny's kidnapping his name came to be associated with the infamous:

Larry King and the Franklin Savings and Loan.  Author Nick Bryant has written a recent book on this topic titled "The Franklin Scandal".

The "Franklin cover up" is an alleged child sex trafficking, molestation and murder conspiracy that involved high power figures in the state of Nebraska and in the Department of Justice as well as the Republican party. It also involved the one time home of Charles Manson:

A key witness in that case was:

Paul Bonacci, alleged to be a victim in this nefarious operation.

Of course there is also the widely acknowledged molestation and abuse cases and allegations that have besieged the Catholic Church over the course of decades.  It is this that also lends heavy credence to the participation of Boy's Town in this type of heinous activity.
It is quite clear that pedophile priests have been systematically protected from the law and basically allowed to continue their horrid actions unchecked. Boy's Town is a charitable organization that is tied to the Church and in recent years another charity has come under scrutiny for the molestation charges brought against the head of it.

Jerry Sandusky, affiliated with both the Penn State University and:

The Second Mile children's charity.

In light of the economic reality of today it should be obvious that there are many young people who are in precarious living situations that may be induced to run away for "greener pastures".  The staggering numbers cannot be explained that easily.  Another major motivator for children to flee an environment is that the environment is one that encompasses abuse of one variety or another.  This need not be confined to the home either.  In the times we live in there are many highly vulnerable emotionally impaired children that are exactly the type of kids that can be spotted and used by pedophiles and other predators.

As has been noted there are many factors at work here in this issue but regardless of what you wish to focus on the conclusion can be none other than that we have a genuine crisis that needs to be addressed squarely.

While the children are the most important simply by virtue of the fact that they are young and especially vulnerable.  There are also untold thousands of missing people over the age of 18 as well.  In 2010 nearly 50,000 unsolved active cases (if you accept the numbers as given) of missing adults.  One new work that has focused on highly unusual disappearances is a 2 book set by author David Paulides entitled "Missing 411", one for Western US and Canada and the other on the Eastern US.  The material in these books makes a strong case for the notion that there is something strange going on that causes the disappearances of many people.

It is not just the "average Joe" which ends up being the "victim" of mysterious disappearance either.  There are many famous people throughout the ages that have disappeared mysteriously, one can consult a list right here.

There are no easy answers to the greater problem but one thing is for sure and that is that we have a problem and it needs to be explored.  If even one child is missing that is a tragedy for the friends and family of that child.  But the yearly accumulation of these children is a national disgrace and deserves to be widely disseminated.

There is a horror out there lurking in the shadows, let us not be deterred by what we might find once it is brought into the light.

At the mountains of madness; from the Harz to WV via Antarctica

As much as we know it only illustrates how little we actually do know.

What do we know … of the world and the universe about us? Our means of receiving impressions are absurdly few, and our notions of surrounding objects infinitely narrow. We see things only as we are constructed to see them, and can gain no idea of their absolute nature. With five feeble senses we pretend to comprehend the boundlessly complex cosmos, yet other beings with wider, stronger, or different range of senses might not only see very differently the things we see, but might see and study whole worlds of matter, energy, and life which lie close at hand yet can never be detected with the senses we have.

The best quote of Lovecraft however comes from the eponymous "Call of Cthulhu":

The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.

Lovecraft epitomized the 20th century for me because of his vision of what some might call the real behind the "real".

He is representative of the "creative mind" and its ability to tap into another realm of knowledge and experience.

I'm going to tell you a story.  Some of this story is true, maybe all of it, maybe only a little of it.  I'll leave it to you to decide.

In the ancient past there were gods on the Earth.  These gods gave humanity the arts and sciences.  Metallurgy, astronomy, math, architecture, agriculture and civilization.  These gods were said to have come from elsewhere, sometimes down from the sky, sometimes not.  Since the earliest times man has recorded the adventures of gods and their interaction with man.  All of the technology that has been "given" to humanity by these gods had a direct relationship to something immediately useful to humanity.  How to grow food crops is a good example of this and also smelting and the making of weapons of war.

Over the course of time the knowledge of the ancient gods had been passed into the hands of priesthoods.  It is important to note that in most pantheons of the ancient peoples the gods were HUMAN looking and acted in much the same way that humans acted.  They had similar emotional responses, love, anger, hatred, wrath.  They were largely depicted as humanoid in appearance, one head, two arms, two legs, with similar human characteristics.  There is also the notion of good and evil which are based upon a morality system that, as far as we know, is uniquely human.  During the ritualization of these ancient myths we had religions evolve and of course the "servitors" and "messengers" of the gods in the form of angels and demons.  

There are a couple of immensely important things to consider in this area and in the area of the ancient astronaut theories that needs to be a part of the debate in relation to the gods of old and their origin.
Let's look at some depictions of "ancient astronauts" and see what we find.

This is not by any means a comprehensive looks but representative.  One thing you notice immediately is that these beings resemble humans.  They are depicted in some instances as exactly like humans.  The same way that the ancient gods were depicted.

Now that we have established this point let us move on with our narrative and come back to this point later.

The priesthoods as the caretakers of the ancient knowledge established systems by which the knowledge would be kept and disseminated which spawned secret societies of a sort some of these evolved into "religions" of their own like the Mystery Schools.
The knowledge itself had to do with alternative technology, some of it "advanced" by our standards of the time, some of it just a different type of technology than we, as humans, were aware of or had developed ourselves.
Some of this technology related to flying machines of one sort or another.  Some represented processes and techniques.  One example of this would be the technology employed by Masamune the sword maker.
In the history of human development there were times when there was intervention of one sort or another that led to big events or resulted from big events in history.  A classic example would be the Men In Black that appeared in relation to the Black Death of the Middle Ages, and the wood cuts of things in the sky at the time.  There is a question of cause and effect here of course.

This post would be far too long if I were to list and illustrate all of the various interventions that have apparently occurred in history.
I would like to move us along to the present day.  There is the notion of the technology of the "flying saucer" and the allegations of this technology being revealed to humans , especially in Germany some time before World War II.  It is no secret that Germany had developed many different and radical technologies to power their war machine, which included some type of "UFO", the Nazi Bell, and many others, including a different type of nuclear weapon.  For more on these issues one is highly urged to read the works of Joseph Farrell.
After World War II most of the technology of Germany was captured by, or given to, the allies. The United States gained the lions share of this technology according to most sources.
Where did the Germans come up with the ideas for their radical physics and for the "UFOs"?  Some have alleged that they got it from Extraterrestrials, or as Giorgio Tsoukalos would say "Exaterrestrial".

I have a different view and this is where I will bring back the first part of this post and wrap it all up into a supposition for your consideration.
In 1947 there were several events that were of significance in the present evolution of UFOs as physical Extraterrestrial ships, piloted by aliens from another planet in our Universe.  It is here that I want to point you to several different theories for the origin of supposed aliens that have nothing to do with physical aliens from some other planet.

One needs to also consider the interest that the supposed "aliens" have had in the technological development of man.  The first contactee cases of completely human looking beings were very concerned about our nuclear weapons and our potential destruction of the Earth and ourselves.  The obvious question is; why would they care?  If they are from light years away the health of the Earth would hardly be important to them in the grand scheme of things.  However if these beings were from HERE and were dependent upon the biosphere of the Earth just like we are they would have a high interest in our survival and the survival of the Earth.  Even up to the more recent UFO reports there is a high level of interest in nuclear weapons.  
First we have the idea espoused by John Keel and Jacques Vallee of Ultraterrestrials.  Beings FROM here and that reside HERE in some "other" hidden or attenuated state.  Otherwise human like, though larger or smaller, but with the same type of psychological foibles as humanity.
Second there is the notion of the Cryptoterrestrials as espoused by the late Mac Tonnies.  These beings are HERE and some, at least, can and do interact with humanity and largely can go unnoticed.  Why?  Because they appear human, or human enough to pass.
Third there is the notion of the Elusive Companion Hypothesis as espoused by Christopher Knowles.  This view is similar to the idea promulgated by Tonnies.
All of these theories for the origin of "aliens", ETs, ancient aliens, gods have two things in common.  One all of these beings are actually HERE, and have always been HERE, on Earth or very close by.  And two, all of these beings either naturally resemble Humans or can appear as human or human like enough to pass among us.
Let's pause to consider a couple of things before the story concludes.  The vast majority of "alien" encounters are with beings that are either indistinguishable from humans, the so-called Nordics.

 Or the ubiquitous Grey Alien.

In relation to the Greys one would do well to refer to the material discussed by:

Walter Bosley.  He is a former military officer who's father was also military who told him that the event at Roswell, widely regarded as the result of extraterrestrials crashing a mechanical ship from some distant planet was, in fact, much different.  The allegation here is that the supposed "aliens" were denizens of the UNDERGROUND, and that they were humans that had lived below ground apparently for a long time and had developed a technology different from and perhaps more advanced than our own.
With this in mind let us look at the grey alien with the BIG EYES.  Why would a "thing" need LARGE eyes?  To capture more light?  Why would that be a characteristic of Greys?  Perhaps they originate and operate largely in a low light environment, such as UNDERGROUND?  A current vogue among UFOlogists is that the Greys are androids or machines.  Could they be a constructed creature or machine that is used by our Elusive Companions, Ultraterrestrials, and Cryptoterrestrials.  And that they are small because they largely operate in cramped low lighted areas, which could be beneath our very feet.

Okay let's wrap it up.  I was recently having a conversation with my friend Andy Colvin, best known for his writings on Mothman.  In which we discuss the ultimate crossover of UFO phenomena with "terrestrial" technology which he sees as the unleashing of the drones.  His assertion that the Foo fighter and other technology developed by the Nazi's were remotely controlled drones, and that much of modern UFOs are in fact drones being piloted by HUMANS remotely.  Much of the technology of drone development happened in West Virginia according to the material that Andy has uncovered in his research.  And this has a direct connection with the Nazis because of Project Paperclip and the inclusion of Germany's scientists into the US technology sphere.  And of course that brings in Antarctica where the Nazi's were alleged to have established a base or more, which may explain the weirdness associated with Operation Highjump and the nuclear "testing" near Antarctica.

And that brings us to a couple of questions to ponder.  First of all I am not attempting to "explain" all unusual or paranormal phenomena including all UFO related phenomenon as having a "mundane" and human explanation.  I merely posit that it can be an explanation for a lot of it while acknowledging that there is another element at work here, one that is more esoteric and hard to grasp.  Now the questions.  If we are visited by "aliens" that appear to be human, have human characteristics and traits then we must wonder at the parallel evolution that would produce human-like creatures on another planet under different local Universal conditions.  Is that a reasonable conclusion?  It might be IF there is some,as yet, unknown factor in the Universe that REQUIRES that human-like beings are the only beings that CAN be intelligent and capable of advanced civilization and technology.  Otherwise one would wonder why we aren't being visited by aliens so ALIEN as to be incomprehensible.  Then there is the idea of the rh factor which definitely has a genetic component to the UFO and abduction phenomena.  Would aliens from another planet have any ability to interact with DNA of a species that developed under different conditions?  If "aliens" are conducting genetic experimentation and creating "hybrids" is it not reasonable to conclude that the aliens in question are US?  That they are, in fact, HUMAN of a type.  And would that not also preclude to a certain extent that they are also, in fact, here, and have always been here?
Thus ancient astronauts may have been just that, ancient astronauts, human astronauts, from here.  Ancient gods, human-like, were from here as well perhaps?  
If this is the case we might expect at some point that these "others" will become known and that the gods of old will "return".  And that will be a day that will have the potential to answer so many questions as well as offer us the opportunity to address some of the more pressing problems of the human race.
Or I'm just full of hot air.
