Hi Capeditiea, & welcome to the board!

I was just wondering what incident you were referring to here? There were quite a wave of humanoid/alien sightings in the mid 50s, particularly in France & the US (guessing you know this though). :)

yes... i would have to look it up on the exact one. (or hypnotise my self into remembering...) i will do this later...

:3 i am aware, there are many.


---edited to add.
Sigh... i tried searching but i cannot seem to find the site i found it on...

the site had a bunch of un-classified documents and objects. (not only of the extra-terestial kind, also of some really interesting objects, that was not known in the public before... (perhaps someone here knows the site...) another interesting thing about that site, is there was an experiment similar to the experiment in it's description. and a record player that only plays backwards. (i lost it after switching OSes in 2015.)

Or the site was from an alternate timeline... if no one knows about that site in particular, then i will be left with two options, i am crazy or i am in a different timeline.

You just got Mandela Effected, haha. :wink: Sounds like an interesting site though!

Going back to Part 8 (& TP/Lynch in general), the woodsmen/alien thing you brought up makes me think of 'Woodcutters from Fiery Ships' (http://www.thecityofabsurdity.com/game.html), a game Lynch was working on in the late 90s. According to John Neff, Lynch was "fairly far down the road writing the game", so a couple of elements could've made it through to the Return.

From the above site: "And then suddenly the woodcutters arrive and they take the man who we think has witnessed these events, and their ship is... uh, silver, like a 30`s kind of ship"

I’m guessing you know this, but Lynch & Badalamenti recently released their song of the same name, which was recorded in the 1992-93 period shortly after FWWM, and has a “storyline” similar to the description of the game.

I knew there was a song of the same name, but I haven't got the album yet (or listened to it on the tube)... definitely didn't know the storyline reflected the game though (there are lyrics?) or that it was recorded so soon after FWWM, both of which are very interesting to hear. Going to listen now, thanks for the heads up!

sigh... the mandela effect happens to me a lot... especially the Volvo insignia. (which is a hole [sic] different kind of strange synchro with Lynch and my self... i may embark on this story of my life working for Kirby at some random point.)

the game seems fascinating. :O *nods, perhaps someone could recode it for android or linux. :3 because i would play it.

i need to check out the song as well.

Given how surreal this episode is, I'm not sure I'll even attempt to ask any questions about the bulk of it, but regarding the first scene, which mostly seems rooted in reality, why does Coop type the license plate of the truck in front of them into his phone and toss it out the window? How does that disable the tracking devices on the car (if it does)?

From what I recall, he disabled three tracking devices in the car, then input the truck's license plate. To me the scene was very deep and full of heavy suspicion, because it implies the car's systems were actually being used to track as opposed to a planted or secondary device. I only say that because, well, how else would he switch the target from the car to the truck, unless he were simply redirecting a pointer? And if that were the case, doesn't that indicate that the technology is already there in the truck, and every other vehicle on the road? There are serious implications in the scene. It's as though the FBI, and by extension the federal government, is privately seeing at a whole other level than the public could ever conceive of.
Not taking any calls.

Gotta hand it to you, Jonah, you practically single-handedly set this message board ablaze in the past few days! :D
