Regular readers here know I rarely post videos or tweets as the main subject of a blog, and the reason for that is quite simple: if you  get on average of 100 emails per day, and if all of them contained videos that everyone claimed was "so important that I know you'll want to watch this one even though you don't watch videos," I'd get very little done. It takes me far less time to scan through an article in a few seconds, than to watch a video of several minutes. Additionally, the problem with referencing a video is that you have to provide a time stamp for people for the specific point one wants to reference. 99% of all emails containing videos get immediately deleted. I simply don't watch them. And finally, I have this innate skepticism when it comes to video or photographic "proof" of anything. Things can be faked.

But... occasionally I do, and even more rarely, I blog about them, and this is one such case. It may indeed prove to be one of those occasional fakes that make the rounds on the internet, and if that should prove to be the case, we can all have a good laugh at my expense and then move along.

This one, however, really caught my eye and I rather suspect it will yours as well. And it's the subject of our trademark High Octane Speculation for today. It was shared by C.V., and it concerns some highly unusual footage of what is claimed to be a Space X rocket launch:


Now, it should be pointed out that the video is coming from one of those flat earth websites, and they of course have their own agendas, in this case made clear by the quotations "Does it look like it is hitting something? Maybe a barrier some people call a Firmament or a Dome?" Well, sorry, I'm not a flat earther of a firmamenter or anything of the sort. There are other kinds of "domes" that one can envision, and these fall under the heading of "Tesla stuff", and have been amply catalogued in the various books and papers of Lt. Col. (US Army, Ret) Tom Bearden. There are reports of such "energetic domes" even as far back as World War Two, and I have chronicled a couple of these in my books. One concerned the strange case of a dome being seen in 1943 during the Russian counteroffensive after Stalingrad. A dome was seen by Russian troops over the suspected position of a German infantry regiment. When the Russians arrived at the position, the Germans were found dead, and all the ammunition in their magazines and belts had exploded. Another episode close to the end of the war recorded an American bomber flying into a "dome", and simply disappearing. No wreckage, no debris, no nothing. Tall tales? Reality? I don't know. But they're worth mentioning.

Whatever one makes of such anecdotal reports, something like that appears to be the case here. What intrigues me about the video is the context in which the video might be viewed, and no, it's not flat earth or firmaments or such nonsense. Let's go back to the Chelyabinsk Meteor Incident. Recall that a month prior to the incident, Russian prime minister Dmitri Medvedev went  on Russian television, calling for an asteroid defense shield be built for planetary defense, and called on the major powers of the world to cooperate in building it. Then he went on to say that if they didn't, Russia would have to proceed on its own, and do so. Asked what weapons might work, Medvedev opined that Russia's ICBMs and thermonuclear weapons could do the trick, and if that wasn't possible, then it had "other means" of doing so, which means were left conveniently unspecified. A month later, as if on cue, the Chelyabinsk Meteor appeared.

Then there were those strange tweets and remarks from President Trump about the USA not needing nuclear weapons anymore to wreak wholesale regional destruction. And oh, yea, we need "another space force." Another??!? You mean, the one we have now isn't adequate? And then came that strange tweet about "invisible" weapons. "Energetic domes" might fit that bill. And while we're flaying away in midair with our speculations, let's not forget that now-famous NASA Space shuttle video (number 48), showing nice UFOs moving in strange patterns, until something on the Earth's surface shoots at one of them, which little dot of light then executes a nifty right angle turn and shoots off into space.

All this, we were told, was "ice crystals" from a urine dump, until Dr. Jack Krasher, a physicist with the University of Nebraska, quickly and deftly disposed of that explanation.

So what are we looking at here? Well, if it's not a fake, then I don't know. Except I'm willing to wager that it's not "evidence" of firmaments or flat earth, and more likely a test of some sort. Of an energy shield, possibly. A little "demonstration" to someone by someone...

But this may be a case of You Tell Me...

See you on the flip side...

    I’m getting that old Norway Spiral feeling again…. But actually looks like booster going off on it’s own and sputtering thru the tail of the rocket backlit/underlit by sun just over the horizon.

    Charles Fort writes about radio waves that return, apparently having ‘hit something’.

    • Foglamp on November 26, 2019 at 6:55 am

      Yes, high-frequency radio waves will bounce off the ionosphere back to earth in a type of propagation known as “skywave.”

    By the way, Dr. Farrell – the trademark HIGH OCTANE SPECULATION is available! I searched the USPTO…

      Better take it. I heard someone interviewed last week use that term.

  4. Scott S on November 21, 2019 at 11:28 pm

    It appears to be a faked video, but based on staging. The pressure wave from a rocket staging can be pretty spectacular. It looks like they took the real footage of the rocket staging and repeated and modified. it.

    Makes one wonder about mankind’s using nature/universe for both war and energy. Is this endemic w/life and it’s intimate relationship w/it’s mother, the living universe.
    Circles of life w/in circles of life. The circle is a cycle; the spiral is w/in the circle’s dimension as well.
    W/in that complex of living dwells intelligence.
    But what spawned this curiosity?
    Or, is it w/in the fabric of the living universe; endemic throughout and thru/in?
    Do these levels of energy/war dance, step by step, w/intelligence? Is that dance/music’s tempo change w/ the music[technology] sheet/script. At one level tango; another classical?
    For today the universe spoke loudly here?
    Yet, billions of years ago?


    How bright was the intelligence that was its causa belli?
    An engineering feat?
    If natural, was the universe, using this energy to maintain the cycle’s/circle/spiral’s balance?

    Or, was it a spiritual release?
    An ecstasy?

    What shields life from these gamma rays?
    Or, is it w/in the life cycle
    necessary for the dance
    to continue/play on?

      The dance of equilibrium.

    Bouncing off? First thought occurred to me was that as the rocket moved further through a polluted atmosphere (aka nano-metallic-salts) the polluted and charged atmosphere reacted, chemically, physically, electrically?

    The earth is flat for a sufficiently small ant, without any technology, particularly short legs, lazy as hell and an infinitesimally small time frame.

    thanks @Goshawks for some fact checking, we all need to do that more often (subject to time constraints and not falling into distracting mind bending traps.)

    I cannot watch the video, I don’t tweet or facef*3ck

    Is there the possibility that the military decided to use the Falcon9 for target practice and promote flat earth killing two birds with one stone. Since our elites think most of humanity are scum to be destroyed they must push the meme there is nowhere to escape from their clutches.

    The suffragette countermove
    provides the final proof,
    that earth is flat,
    with a cat
    on a hot tin roof.

    I don’t do twit(ter), so here is probably the original article:
    “September 13th, 2018 CAPE CANAVERAL, FL – A SpaceX launch ended in tragedy Thursday as the rocket intended to carry a cellular satellite into orbit around the earth bounced off the firmament described in the opening chapters of Genesis, sources confirmed. The rocket accelerated higher and higher above the flat earth and toward the sun and moon a mere 3,000 miles away before suddenly bouncing off the glass-like dome containing the earth.”

    I looked up SpaceX launches in that time period, and there was only one:
    September 10, 2018 – For the second time in seven weeks, SpaceX, Telesat, and SSL teamed up for a commercial satellite launch from Cape Canaveral early Monday, this time successfully deploying into orbit a high-power telecom payload developed in a joint venture with a Hong Kong-based company. The Telstar 18 VANTAGE communications satellite, also known as APSTAR 5C, was released into orbit by the Falcon 9’s second stage around 32 minutes after liftoff, which occurred at 12:45 a.m. EDT (0445 GMT) Monday.”

    So, flat-assed lies…
