My Avebury Radio Interview

I’ve been interviewed again on the radio. The weekend before last I met a friendly fellow called Niall AKA “Opaque Lens” of Shamanic Freedom Radio and took part in his podcast. Here is the programme and I appear after about 23 minutes. He also got a few minutes with Our Dave too. I did a good job there, but I tend to let my thoughts run away with me and end up talking too fast; you may have noticed this on HPANWO TV as well. Here’s the programme: ; and on this page you can see many other fascinating radio shows. I particularly recommend Ian Crane and Graham Hancock: .

I would have written this article much sooner, but I had to finish off my AVII report. It’s a relief to have that out of the way now so I’m free to write about other things. The weekend before last Ustane and I went to Avebury for the Summer Solstice. It was also for a David Icke Forum meet-up and David himself was there to shoot a sequence to his new documentary and we were going along to help him. It turned out to be one of the strangest weekends in my life, but also one of the most enjoyable. Saturday the 20th of June in particular was packed with high strangeness. I’ve already written about one aspect of this: but there was more. I missed the first hour of the shot because I had to fill out a police witness statement. This was because when we arrived at Avebury we came across a man lying in the porch of the church. We thought that he was just asleep but it turned out that he was dead! Here’s a news story of the event: . I felt his wrist for a pulse and he was stiff and stone cold, but in truth I knew he was dead before that. I knew from the moment I saw him. I’ve seen many people die up at the hospital and I’ve noticed something about what happens in the process. Even before you see that their colour has gone and that they’re not breathing etc they lose that indefinable quality that could be defined as simply “life”. As soon as I see a dead body I can sense that the life-force has left it. But I had a hell of a job explaining that to the policewoman who interviewed me! It could have been worse; we could have been driven to the police station. But as luck, or the Gods and Goddesses of Avebury, would have it the police managed to hire a room at the Red Lion, the famous pub in the centre of the monument and we got back to the location in time the second half of the shoot and it was wonderful! I also met Neil Hague again; see links column. However we all felt that the incident that morning had some significance and fitted into everything else that passed that day. There’s even more too; I should also mention what happened that morning in the early hours of Saturday. I got out of my tent; don’t know what time it was but it was dark and that means 2 or 3 AM at that time of year. I walked from our tent and had a wee in the river that runs through the campsite we stayed at. I saw in the bushes what resembled a luminous cloud of steam or smoke, but it kept a distinct shape and did not diffuse as smoke and steam does. It twisted and undulated a few times and then vanished. It was a kind of greyish white colour. Nobody else was around at the time. I don't know what it was, but as we've discussed, I've seen spectral figures before and the colour and consistency of the entity resembled others I've encountered. What was notable was that there were pylon lines hanging over the campsite and I'm reminded of Dr Michael Persinger and Dr Andrew Newburg and their studies of how electrical fields affect the brain and can cause altered states of consciousness and/or a greater ability to perceive paranormal phenomena. Maybe this is what happened to me. Here’s an interesting documentary about it: . I asked a friend of mine who’s a ghost-hunter and he said it could be ionization caused by the power lines. He also warned me not to piss in rivers!

All in all, it was a very bizarre and creepy weekend. The synchronous and unworldly popped out at us from every angle. For example, here’s another weird bloke I bumped into!:

Hi Ben
Very interesting story - strange things did seem to be afoot over the Solstice. Have been feeling a bit spacey this last week & your article helped to re-ground me, so thanks :)
Your interview sounded good to me.

All the best

Cheers, Alex.

Glad to have helped you groud; not easy for anyone to do. I know what you mean. A few months ago I switched to a fluoride-free toothpaste brand and I think I'm just startiung to feel the effects. God knows what more are coming! At least it means my Pineal Gland has not suffered permanent damage from my lifetime of brushing with Colgate.

All the best,

Never seen the comment section on this before ... the man you found was my road brother and godfather to my son ... the smoke/steam ? No idea if it linked but I didn't find out about Gareth's death for about 6 weeks ... during this time both me and my son noticed similar in our home ... it disappeared after I found out about his death ...
