Are You Happy To Accept It?

So like when you were little
Out in the yard
Mom, and dad inside
And you were outside
Do you remember?

Your friends
They were there too
One was your best
but they all were your
heroes and your family
Do you remember?

And you'd come up with games
And rules for those games
and the games they'd begin
and you'd run and you'd spin
And you'd hide
And you seek
And you'd see
And you'd say
And you'd
And you'd
And you'd
Do you

How happy you felt
Without even knowing
That feeling
of air rushing across your ears
As you'd run in the dark
Your heart beatin so fast
And you'd feel embraced
By every little thing
Do you remember?

And the stars
would be comin out
The sounds of night
be comin out
Running through the yard
In your bare feet
Feeling grass
between your toes
You'd feel so real
Do you remember?

You didn't live for yesterday
You didn't live for tomorrow
You didn't live for anything
You didn't live for anyone
You just lived
Do you remember?

Wasn't that life
In that moment
Wasn't that life
Do you remember?

And now
What are you doing
Are you living
Are you connecting
With the moment
Are you connecting
With you
Are you connecting
With any part of what you
were then
or what you are now
Do you remember?

Or are you tellin yourself
You're trapped
That one day
You'll be carefree
Is that what you say
to yourself
At the end of each day
Is that what you say
And are you happy
To accept it?

Was Landmark Ford Visited By Ghost Lights?

Springfield, Illinois 12.05.2006 - Auto Dealership - Strange Lights Seen?

Strange Lights Seen?

Last Thursday night, November 30th, 2006 was a night few local residents will forget. A severe winter storm hit the Midwest, leaving Central Illinois covered in ice, and snow. Hundreds of thousands of residents throughout the area lost power, with over thirty five thousand Springfield, Illinois residents losing power.

Blue flashes of light filled the sky as ice burdened power lines broke away from transformers. Other flashes of light were seen that night. The winter snow storm which hit the area also brought with it lightning. Snow storms which produce lightning, and thunder are rare.

Stranger still are reports of intense red, and green flashes of light coming from clouds over Jerome, Illinois - a suburb of Springfield, Illinois.

There has also been at least one report of strange multicolored lights possibly originating from an auto dealership located on Springfield, Illinois' southwest side!

Rich Miller writes, "I saw those multi-colored flashes as well Thursday night", referring to a blog post by Springfield blogger, JeromeProphet, "I was pulling into that 24 hour megastore just southwest of spfld when it happened".

Miller stated that he suspected that malfunctioning flood lights at a auto dealership was the cause of the multicolored lights which he saw on Springfield's far south side.

Knox wrote a series of blog post refuting a link between Miller's claims, and his own. Jerome Prophet went on to ask, how ordinary white floodlights could produce red, and green light of such an intensity that it could be seen through a driving ice storm several miles away when visibility was severely limited. He also claimed that the lights he, and his family saw were coming from clouds directly overhead, and not reflecting off of the bottom of clouds.

Jerome Prophet also pointed out, in a response to Miller, that auto dealership floodlights couldn't produce thunder, which Jerome Prophet claims his family heard.

Drive Through Area Leads To Questions

The short video above was taken of the auto dealership park on Springfield's southwest side. As you may notice the floodlights are producing white light. None appear to be flickering, or producing any other colors.

Out of dozens of flood lights which appeared to be working properly I located just one which wasn't functioning. Every light pole I noticed appeared to be undamaged, and properly erect. Each dual set of flood lights is capped at the top, and almost all light produced by the floodlights hits the ground below.

I have never seen ordinary floodlights produce green, blue, or red light simply because of power fluctuations. A simple experiment of attaching a floodlight to a dimmer switch, while fluctuating the amount of power reaching the floodlight produced no such alteration in color.

Strange Colored Lights Seen @ Prairie Crossing - Springfield, IL?

Questions For Rich Miller

You were in total disagreement with the interpretation (light flashes originating in clouds) of my own family's experience, but there are many questions I have about your experience.

You wrote,
"I saw those multi-colored flashes as well Thursday night. I was pulling into that 24 hour megastore just southwest of spfld when it happened (went to buy a kerosene heater)".

Was this the Meijer's which is located at 4200 Conestoga Drive?

Rich you wrote, "The flashes coincided with a power outage, and I speculated at the time that it was all those incredibly bright street lights at the car dealerships behind the store going off, on, off (with accompanying power surges) that caused the bizarre light display".

So Rich you're "pulling into" the Meijer's parking lot, and the sky is filling with strange colored lights, and you "speculated at the time" that it was coming from the auto dealerships?

You managed to drive into the "Megastore's" parking lot without actually seeing the floodlights themselves (casting multicolored flashes) which you speculate at the time must be the cause of the bizarre light display.

Now if you had actually seen the white floodlights casting flashes of colored lights into the sky wouldn't you have said that? Instead you say, "speculated at the time", and so I must assume that you never actually saw the source of the multicolored light flashes.

If you only saw multi-colored flashes in the sky, and never saw the source of those flashes, and were forced to speculate on their origin, then why are you so sure that the light flashes were coming from the ground, and beaming into the sky?

In response to my own family's account in which we actually watched the flashes in the clouds directly over us you stated, "I strongly disagree. From my perspective, it appeared that the multi-colored lights were ground-based and glowing upwards, not the other way around".

But apparently you base this on sheer speculation since you never actually saw what you believe was the source of the light flashes.

Do you honestly believe that white floodlights can emit red, and green light?

Do you honestly believe that those floodlights could have filled the sky so brightly that the light from those auto dealership floodlights would have made its way all the way to Jerome when a heavy ice storm was in progress (see photo below)?

Is that what you're suggesting?

My own family broke out in laughter after hearing this.

Prairie Crossing Auto Park & Meijer's from Veterans Parkway @ Night

In the photograph above we see the entrance of the "Megastore" which Rich Miller stated that he visited the Last Thursday night.

Despite the fact that the various auto dealership flood lights are clearly obvious to anyone with proper vision while entering into the complex Rich Miller wrote that he needed to speculate that light flashes were coming from the auto dealership.

Was Springfield, IL Subjected to EMF Experiment?

In my recent post titled, Blue, Green & Red Lightning Over Jerome Illinois, I recount how my family was startled to observe unusual colored light flickers coming from the clouds over Jerome, Illinois last Thursday night. November 30th, 2006 was the night a devastating ice storm struck Central Illinois. Tens of thousands of residents of Central Illinois are still living without power, while temperatures dip into single digits.

Anyone experienced with ice storms will probably know that power lines burdened by the weight of ice are ripped from their connections to overhead transformers, and that when this happens bright blue flashes fill the sky from electrical arching (sparks).

I've seen the illumination produced by such electrical arching on several occasions, but the multicolored flashes coming from the clouds over Jerome, Illinois last Thursday night were more than a bit suspicious. Pure green light, red light, and blue light flickered from within overhead clouds.

My post resulted in one response, and that has led to my decision to post again on this subject. To read the original post click on the link above, and then come back here to read the following exchange.

JeromeProphet's Response


I noticed that as well (power flickering, in tandem with clouds flickering).

Most people would assume that the light flashes were a result of power lines, heavy with ice, either falling to the ground, or shorting at the transformer.

I am in no way suggesting that there weren't many instances in which charged power lines weren't doing exactly that. We know that for a fact.

I've watched in fascination, and horror, as a tornado came straight into our neighborhood. I watched as the sky filled with sudden purplish blue flashes as transformers shorted out as the tornado advanced.

I've seen many similar blue flashes in another ice storm which hit this area many years ago.

Any normal person would assume that those strange colored lights must have been the result of ice shorting out power lines.

Most people have little reason to believe anything other than that.

Interestingly, it is exactly this assumption which allows for such an event to be exploited.

Read that again, because it is important.

If I fly up into a cloud, and start flashing a red, green, and blue strobe light on an average night - there will at least be some rumblings about the source of those lights.

If those same colored flashes occur on a night in which there is an alternative explanation (plausible denial for those whose fragile psyche needs it) then those flashes are much easier to produce without causing a public relations problem.

No Main Stream Media outlet will ever question the source of such flashes - it just won't happen.

EMF Weapon Testing Over Springfield, Illinois?

Rich, let's look at the coincidence of the strange colored light flashes, and the power flickering in homes, and businesses below.

I noticed those too. I never mentioned it, because I felt it would be a bit too much to ask from my readers. I'm certain that most of my regular readers don't believe any of what I write about these types of subjects.

I have a very good friend who also blogs, and while he politely tolerates my post on this type of subject he never (ever) comments on them! Despite our decades long friendship he doesn't believe in any of this at all, and except for one sarcastic post he's never made one single comment - despite the gravity of my allegations.

The lesson is, when one of your best buddies believes that you're either insane, or totally ignorant, for blogging about such topics you can only imagine what those who don't know you must assume.

Despite the risk of further damage to my credibility I'm going to address the subject further in this post. This isn't the first time I've seen such phenomena (i.e., flickering lights from clouds at the same time power flickers within the home). Having said that, so what? I suspect it's commonplace.

I've seen such phenomena many times, over many decades, even when no type of storm was present (ice storm or otherwise).

Although it may be a natural phenomena I'm inclined to believe otherwise.

A Type of EMF Dampening Field?

I've noticed that the "dampening" effect isn't confined to power coming from a power line into a home. It also appears to effect power from a battery going into a flashlight - especially if the flashlight's battery is already somewhat weak.

How does a flicker of "light" within a cloud cause a dampening of energy reaching a light bulb within the rather simple circuit of a flashlight?

With enough money, and within a very short period of time I suspect this wouldn't take much to develop.

Just placing a large Tesla coil within an aircraft, and powering it up over a city would cause some rather interesting electrical effects below.


Why would anyone, or any organization, want to take advantage of a storm by testing EMF weapons on a metro area that is already under siege from wind, rain, snow, and ice?

First, because they can, and secondly because the storm provides a perfect cover for running such an operation.

Resultant harm?


Possible gain?

Additional development of such a weapon, and experience in using it under extreme weather conditions.

Are we lab rats?

Perhaps, but if there was no harm done, and such weapons are covertly advanced with the goal to defend us - perhaps that's the price we pay for our freedom, and prosperity.


One Final Question

I don't believe that EMF weapons produce red flickering from clouds. There might be something I don't understand about the physics, but there doesn't appear to be any reason for a red, or almost pure green light to be flickering down from within a cloud.

So why were such colors produced?

Perhaps we should ask those who produced them?

Ice Infection (JeromeProphet 12.02.2006)

Scattered throughout the trees.
It waited, nearly motionless.
Huddled within their dwellings.
They were Oblivious
To the infection.
