Strange Creature Washes Ashore in Georgia, Baffles Scientists
A bizarre animal washed up on shore in southeastern Georgia on Friday, that some say resembles the Loch Ness monster or a prehistoric marine reptile, like the Plesiosaur. The green, seafaring creature appears to have a small head, long neck, two fins, and a frilled tail.
The Jacksonville, Florida Fox affiliate reports that the animal was spotted by local resident, Jeff Warren, while he was fishing with his son on the coast of Wolf Island National Wildlife Refuge. Warren said he first thought the creature was a dead seal, but later described it as more of a “Loch Ness-type thing.”
Cryptozoologists are intrigued by the recent find, due to the legend of the Altamaha-ha, a Loch Ness-type cryptid, fabled to inhabit the waters around southeastern Georgia. Sightings of the creature are common in the many tributaries and streams flowing in from the mouth of the Altamaha River.
Some have speculated that the creature could be a rarely seen frilled shark, similar to the one spotted off the coast of Portugal last year. Frilled sharks do live in the waters around Georgia, though the specimen in question doesn’t appear to have the animal’s typical razor teeth.
Experts have ruled out the possibility that the creature is a cetacean, the group of marine mammals that includes whales, dolphins and porpoises. Often in these scenarios, the animal in question turns out to be a cetacean, such as the case last year, when a massive, grey animal washed ashore on an Indonesian island, mystifying locals, until it was determined to be a decomposing whale.
Unfortunately, Warren was unable to capture the specimen and only posted a single, slightly blurry video of the creature, leading some to call it a hoax. There are, however, a multitude of new species discovered each year, with one estimate predicting that 24 to 31 percent of marine species have yet to be discovered.
UFOs and Bigfoot; Evidence of an Inter-Dimensional Connection
John Keel, the prominent ufologist and paranormal researcher, famous for the Mothman Prophecies, once proposed the idea that there are “window areas” throughout the world, connecting our reality with parallel dimensions. These areas, Keel imagined, may help elucidate some unexplained reports of entities that are too fleeting or confusing to later detail or prove. With the increasing plausibility of the multiverse theory and infinite neighboring universes, maybe we should be asking ourselves; are UFOs and Bigfoot interdimensional travelers, and could there be a connection between the two?
Interdimensional Bigfoot Theories
For hundreds of years, people worldwide have reported encounters with monsters, fairies, demons, and cryptids. To this day those experiences persist, while many of these same entities have also been encountered through the use of psychedelics.
Now, it would be easy to say these are simply archetypal figures; beings our collective consciousness conjures in our minds with anthropomorphic features based on fears or subliminal functions of our psyche. Or we could entertain the ostensibly bizarre possibility that these are entities from another dimension operating on higher realms of existence.
Keel referred to these entities as ultra-terrestrials; beings capable of crossing dimensions at will, often acting as “cosmic pranksters.” Daniel Pinchbeck says he experienced prankster entities from a psychedelic realm cross into the real world after encountering them during and in the subsequent weeks following a psychedelic trip.
When it comes to Bigfoot, Sasquatch, the Yeti, or whatever you want to call them, there is often a playfulness and/or spookiness described in their actions. Tree knocking or eerie screams alert us to their presence until we get close enough where they might offer a glimpse, before vanishing seemingly into thin air.
Their appearance could be considered another form of prank, embodying a primitive, ape-like creature that exudes a noxious odor. Yet, they’re able to evade contact with us despite thousands of reported sightings over hundreds of years. Is Sasquatch cosmically trolling us?
An intriguing account tying UFO’s and Bigfoot together comes from an 1888 meeting between cattle ranchers and a group of Native Americans in Northern California. The natives described three “crazy bears” that descended from the sky in a small moon, leaving them in the woods before taking off.
In another instance, in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1973, a woman named Reafa Heitfield and her daughter were awakened in the middle of the night to a beam of light extending down from a bulbous umbrella shape in the sky. Tracking the light to where it landed in the nearby woods, the two noticed a grayish, simian creature wandering toward the beam. Before they knew it, both the ape and the craft disappeared.
Though these stories may be apocryphal in nature, it’s reported that at least 20 percent of Bigfoot sightings coincide with UFO events.
Jack Cary, a cryptozoologist who has studied Bigfoot for decades, says he believes it’s alternatively plausible that Bigfoot is being abducted by UFOs in much the same way humans are, to study its DNA and physical attributes.
