In southeastern Pennsylvania, the local MUFON chapter puts on monthly programs to “educate” (I guess) the public about issues relevant to UFOs. Next week they present “The Night We Rocked the Pyramids,” in which local minister Annabelle Wood, a self-described student of quantum physics, will discuss her experiences searching Egypt’s pyramids for hidden truths. Here is what the news release promises for the Nov. 13 event in Strafford, Penn. Be sure to read all the way to the end, when the story takes an incongruous turn.
“I have a really good idea what they might have been designed to do. It sure is not what I was told in school. On the night of the full moon, we went inside all three pyramids and Ohm’ed our way to bliss. You won’t believe the end of the story!”
I’m not sure there is much to say here, really, but I could not resist sharing this near-perfect encapsulation of everything ludicrous about the outer fringes of history and science. I don’t know what is more astonishing, that she claims to be able to create electricity from nothing but air yet needs several scrappy businesses to make a living, that her bachelor’s degree was in the metaphysics of quantum mechanics, or that she achieved “bliss” by meditating in a pyramid under the full moon with a crowd, as you will see below, of more than 150 New Agers. I almost inserted a joke about the priapic practice of posing pharaonic mummies here, but I thought better of it.
Oh, and if you were wondering what her revelation about the pyramids encompasses, I imagine it must be the same one that she delivers in other versions of this lecture, many of which are alluded to on various websites. She traveled to Egypt last year with “Nassim Haramein of the Resonance Science Foundation and 160 other graduates of the Connected Universe Physics Course.” According to various lecture descriptions, her view of the pyramids is related to initiation into the mysteries of consciousness.
