The Forgotten Unknowns
by Dennis Rau
There exists in the field of the paranormal many phenomena. While tales of UFOs, abductions and ghosts get most of the headlines, there also exists a paranormal outfield of sorts. Things like paranormal fog, ORBs, and telepathy, for instance. Seems nobody is an expert in paranormal fog.
These phenomena have been present in the background, barely noticed for as long as there have been these mysteries.
This story brings to the forefront these and even lesser-known paranormal phenomena. They are all fascinating, they are all part of the big picture and they are all the Forgotten Unknowns.

Most often associated with ghostly locations, the phenomena known as paranormal fog is thought by some to be actual spirit energy. Theorized at times to be an actual paranormal event involving what might be described as a ghostly ORB in discorporate form, it sometimes is seen in photos with real ORBs actually in the fog. In contrast to a perceived popular conception, paranormal fog does not necessarily mean something evil is afoot. Many recent paranormal fog encounters have been described by the experiencers themselves in very positive terms, putting a new light of understanding on paranormal fog.
Ironically, true paranormal fog has a lot in common with true ORBs. Both are plagued with a pesky ability to be explained by many natural objects. They just take bad photos.
Since they are so little understood, they become even more invisible than they naturally are.
Some paranormal fog photos can be explained as cigarette smoke or steamy winter breath near the camera, and many fog photos are indeed these things.
Paranormal fog which displays certain unique characteristics such as showing a distinct human or spectre-like form, as well as fog which displays nuances of form and movement not characteristic of smoke or breath near the camera. Some paranormal fog photos are so strikingly unique that they practically defy explanation as conventional matter.
So the game here comes down to 1) it happens to you, so you know what happened. 2) you saw a photo and think it happened 3) you saw a photo and do not think it happened. Pick a number.
Yet, after thousands of paranormal investigations, paranormal fog has slipped through the fingers of each and every one.
You may have seen photos of streaks, those long, wavy lines in photos. Usually reddish to orange in color, sometimes a single streak, and other times many streaks travelling in unison in the photo .
It is theorized that the single streak and the multiple streak are possibly separate events entirely.
Streaks are primarily a night or indoor event. It is theorized that streaks move very fast, since there are no streak sightings reported.
Ive heard it called spaghetti by one contactee. It is common for someone to get one streak photo and every other is perfectly normal on that roll of film.
While it may be readily thought to be a camera defect such as shutter malfunction, or even some light leaking into the developers darkroom, there is also another deeper side of streaks.
They show up in photos taken at UFO hot spots, they are thought to be an accompanying phenomena, one seen in proximity to the more mainstream paranormal events. One could think that maybe they show up as a sort of prelude or pathfinder for bigger things equally misunderstood.
A typical reaction to a photo of a streak is a puzzled look, silence or a shrug.
While streaks of the true paranormal variety may hold keys to mysteries yet unpondered, they still wait their day in the spotlight.
This little-known event is similar to streaks, they are seen around and near other paranormal events and locations. Unlike streaks, which are usually orange or reddish in color, Squiggles are usually whitish to bluish white. They go by other names, such as spirals and worms due to their rather winding or wiggly appearance. A lack of a standard of reference, a baseline to refer to, seems to apply to all of these forgotten unknowns. Hence the many names that are used in conjuction with them.
They most closely resemble an ORB in motion, and are often described in this way.
Like the other members of this little fraternity, squiggles often accompany other kinds of paranormal phenomena, such as fog and UFOs. Squiggles are considered as friendly or at least neutral by those who see and report them.
There appears to be more than one type of squiggle as well. Since many kinds of objects moving in front of a camera lens can produce blurry or out-of-focus images, this category of phenomena has the major drawback of being all too easily written off as something ordinary.
Since squiggles somewhat resemble ORBs in motion, and might well be, and since ORB matter closely resembles paranormal fog in some respects, it remains unclear whether these phenomena are different forms of the same thing or different and separate things entirely. All that is known at this point is that these things are being seen and photographed together on a regular basis.
The actual meaning of each of these unknowns is yet to be realized, but perhaps this apparent interrelationship is our first baseline for further understanding.
If there ever were something like an equivalent of a paranormal question mark, it just might be the mysterious form known to some as squiggles.
Telepathy, defined as communication between minds, is another paranormal form we seldom hear much about. Actual telepathic contact is quite the learning experience, according to those who report this type of event. What often occurs when one gets a telepathic message is instinctively you want to send one back,
Inadvertently making one wake up to an ability they never knew they had. Telepathic contact goes with ET/UFO sightings like love and marriage.
Over the many recorded years of human/ET contact, there has been observed several sea changes in the nature and context of the contact. The early years of saucers and secrecy, for instance, became the era of abduction. The era of abduction has faded, and the majority of recent contacts have been of a markedly more positive nature. These changes have been reflected in the telepathy stories told by the experiencers themselves. Instead of memories of abductions regained through hypnotic regression, todays positive contactees describe fully conscious interactions with friendly ETs, a refreshing change in contact indeed.
Telepathic contact is said to be sensed or felt inside the head, not through the ears like normal sounds.
It is described as heard by the spirit, or a spirit voice speaking to you through your own spiritual ear, so the perception of the voice or sound is deeply sensed. Some say it is chiefly inside the right side of their head that telepathy is sensed.
There are many individuals today with telepathic abilities, it has become quite common among people to at some time experience a telepathic event. Many of these same people believe that it is really nothing special, like we all have it. Some people have a lot of it naturally, others only a bit now and then. Everyone can learn to develop this ability if they dedicate the effort necessary.
Yet telepathy seems to elude popular conversation, like somehow it slipped our inner mind somewhere along the way.
This has been a brief introduction to those least-known and least-understood visitors from elsewhere, a first passing glance at those other things that go bump in the night. There are many others still out there.
Lest these smaller wonders pass us by, let us turn our eyes for a moment to these forgotten ones.
Today we look at their photos, we give them names, we see them in the new light of discovery.
Tomorrow, perhaps we will see them in the brighter light of full understanding.
