Imagine the scene: It’s the dead of night and you are fast asleep. Suddenly, things change radically and you find yourself far from asleep; you are now wide awake but unable to move. You are completely paralyzed. You try to cry out but it’s no use. Your heart pounds and your head spins chaotically. Worse still, you see hunched over in the shadows of the bedroom an eight-to-nine-foot-tall skinny and emaciated creature. It is dressed in an old-style black suit, and has a pale face that lacks eyes, a nose, ears, and a mouth. As for its arms and legs, they are almost like those of a spider: long, thin, and spindly. Rubbery, octopus-like tentacles protrude from its torso; they wave and flicker ominously in your direction. To your horror, the night-fiend slowly moves toward you and leans over. Its foul breath makes you wretch. It whispers that you are about to die or that it is coming to take your soul. Maybe you will be its eternal slave in its forested, ancient abode. Now in a state of complete terror, you finally manage to cry out and wake up in a cold sweat. The terrible thing is suddenly gone. You have just had a trauma- and fear-filled encounter with the Slenderman. But, mark my word, he will be back. He always comes back eventually.
The Slenderman has curious origins. He began “life” purely as an Internet creation, specifically the work of a man named Eric Knudsen. In June 2009, Knudsen, via the pseudonym of “Victor Surge,” uploaded a couple of doctored photos of the Slenderman to the Something Awful website forum. In no time at all, others began writing and posting their very own tales of the Slenderman. Short stories, blogs, novels, online games, chat-rooms, and more soon followed. Then, something menacing and sinister happened: People all across the world began to see the Slenderman. Not just on the Internet, not in novels or in the pages of comic-books, but in their homes. In their bedrooms. In mysterious woods. In dreams that rapidly escalated into full-blown nightmares.
The Slenderman had come to life.

Thank you to thechive.com, for sharing this absolutely epic diorama of Derry, Maine, USA—the haunted fictional town created by Stephen King, in which he set his novel IT, as well as parts of other stories (Dreamcatcher, Insomnia, Bag of Bones, 11/22/63–See: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Derry_(Stephen_King)
The amazing piece of miniature art was created by Austrian literary artist, Kassiopeya Sachenwerkler. Fascinated by Stephen King’s IT, Sachenwerkler spent over 900 hours recreating the nostalgia and feeling of a 1950’s Derry, with clues and different pieces from the novel. Down below the streets of the town, she even recreated the sewer lair of “Pennywise” the clown that haunts the novel, the town, and its children.
All of this detail, captured in a 1958 radio cabinet! When it’s closed, it looks like a serene scene from the past. It’s only when you open the doors, that you find yourself caught in the “deadlights”.
This is some seriously stellar work!
I remembering reading about Element 115 as part of the US Govt. “blackball campaign” against Area 51 reverse engineering specialist / contractor Bob Lazar, who went public in the 1990s about the whole thing and was threatened and made a victim of yet another US Got. reputation-slandering campaign against Lazar to discredit him and his extremely convincing evidence. (See Additional Reading/Viewing & Sources below). I knew it was important to remember, but, alas, I forgot about Uup; that is, until I saw some video footage of a man in Colorado writing out equations in his sleep—equations he couldn’t possibly know or understand himself, and that he says were “given”to him by extraterrestrials that have been communication with him since he was a child. They call him “Starseed”. … [See:
Now, I am back on the tracks and eager to learn all I can about Element 115.
With atomic numbers of 113, 115, 117, and 118, the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) announced the addition of these four elements to the periodic table; but one of them, Element 115 was already announced in 1989 when Bob Lazar—famous area 51 whistleblower—revealed to the public that the UFOs possessed by the government were powered by a mysterious ‘Element 115.’ Of course at that time, the claims made by Lazar were tagged as absurd as the scientific community had no knowledge of ‘Element 115’. [See:
According to Wikipedia:
Ununpentium* is a chemical element. It is also named eka-bismuth. It has the symbol Uup. It has the atomic number 115. It is a superheavy element. Ununpentium does not exist in nature. It is a synthetic element, made from a fusion reaction between americium and calcium.
Ununpentium is in the center of the theoretical island of stability. No stable isotopes of ununpentium have yet been found. Models predict that the stable isotope of ununpentium should have 184 neutrons. The stable isotope with 184 neutrons is 299Uup. The isotope that has been made has only 173 neutrons (288Uup).
On February 2 2004 a report that ununpentium and ununtrium were made was written in a journal named Physical Review C. The report was written by a team of Russian scientists at Dubna University’s Joint Institute for Nuclear Research and American scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. These people reported that they bombarded americium with calcium to make four atoms of ununpentium. Scientists of Japan also report that they have made Ununpentium. In May 2006 at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research this element was made by another method and what the final products from radioactive decay were was found by chemical analysis.
*Ununpentium is a temporary IUPAC systematic element name.
The interesting thing to note is that both Lazar and Romanek alerted the world to Uup—via top secret information and dreamed mathematical equations—but it took over a decade for scientists to add Element 115 to the Table of Periodic Elements—-MOST IMPORTANTLY: it previously did not exist on Earth, so where did Lazar and Romanek come up with the information? Did aliens inadvertently give it to us back in July of 1947, when a UFO crashed on the Brazo ranch in Roswell, New Mexico? Did they deliberately give it to us to jump-start our technological progress? Did we shoot the UFOs of 1941 and 1947 down on purpose, to pirate their secrets? Did alien entities who have been following and communicating in person, via phone, and in dreams with a little boy they call Starseed send the mathematical equation linking Element 115 to a method UFO propulsion, telepathically, to the now grown Starseed (Stan Romanek) in his sleep?
It is a fascinating conundrum exacerbated, as usual, by our own govt.’s unwillingness to share information involving UFOs, ETs, and important, even potential life-saving technology with its tax-paying constituency.
The AA episode below discusses Element 115 in the last 10 minutes or so…but the entire episode is relevant to the subject…
“Agents of Dreamland is a new Lovecraftian horror novella from award-winning author Caitlín R. Kiernan…
In this new novella, a government special agent known only as the Signalman gets off a train on a stunningly hot morning in Winslow, Arizona. Later that day he meets a woman in a diner to exchange information about an event that happened a week earlier for which neither has an explanation, but which haunts the Signalman.
In a ranch house near the shore of the Salton Sea a cult leader gathers up the weak and susceptible ― the Children of the Next Level ― and offers them something to believe in and a chance for transcendence. The future is coming and they will help to usher it in.
A day after the events at the ranch house which disturbed the Signalman so deeply that he and his government sought out help from ‘other’ sources, Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory abruptly loses contact with NASA’s interplanetary probe New Horizons. Something out beyond the orbit of Pluto has made contact.
And a woman floating outside of time looks to the future and the past for answers to what can save humanity.”
”Death cults, fungus, and the vast, time-hopping conspiracies of eldritch horrors, oh my. Caitlìn R. Kiernan’s Agents of Dreamland had everything I love crammed into a deceptively slim novella. Kiernan, one of the sharpest voices in weird fiction, has created a bleak and beautiful playground and her new edition of her first Signalman novella, Black Helicopters, is one I’m hoping to see in 2018. I can never get enough nightmare fuel.”
