Well the Thanksgiving weekend has come and gone, but the strange stories kept coming in, and perhaps the strangest one is this one that was spotted by R.H., V.T., and many others. It's about the discovery of that strange "monolith" 0ut in the middle of nowhere in Utah.  And, as an added bonus, just one day after I blogged this story, there's an update that V.T. caught on RT (Russia Today)... but we'll get to that in a moment...

But the "monolith" isn't the only strange thing about the story. There's two versions of this that I want to share, and they're both... well... odd:

Let's take the first story first, before examining the "monolith" story more closely in the second article.   In the first story, oddly enough, the "monolith" is apparently not the only strange thing popping up in the southwestern American desert. As the first article makes clear, "wreckage" that looks more like the soft-landing of a satellite was found in Arizona:

One discovery happened in north-central Arizona. According to reports, a large metal object fell from the sky in a remote area of Dennehotso, a community about 25 miles east of Kayenta. It crashed around midday on November 18.

Navajo Nation Council Delegate Nate Brown shared a picture of the object on his Facebook page writing “My chapter officials reported that this fell from the sky between Dennehotso abs Rock Point. Navajo Nation police did receive the report so they’re checking on it right now. No one was hurt.”

A police spokesperson described the object as a satellite. But this object was also attached to parachutes.

Police said the unidentified object was released to employees from a company called Polar Field Services. This company has not responded to any inquiries.

From the company website, it is based in Colorado and specializes in providing logistics and support for expeditions to locations in extreme climates.

Speculation online is that this was attached to a high-altitude weather balloon this company is known to use.

OK, so we have (1) a satellite that was (2) perhaps being carried by a balloon (perhaps for testing purposes, as the things that normally carry satellites are rockets), that (3) "crashed" in Arizona, but it really didn't crash because it was attached to parachutes, which means someone wanted it to land, and (4) that someone may be the "Polar Field Services" corporation, which apparently "released" the satellite-or-whatever-it-is to its employees, and is keeping a tight lip about it. And, oh yes, "Polar Field Services" according to the article is "based in Colorado" and "specializes in providing logistics and support for expeditions to locations in extreme climates," the type of climate perhaps  being suggested in the name of the company itself: Polar Field Services.

Now I don't know about you, but I get the distinct whiff of "Antarctic strangeness" from all this. One could, I suppose, argue that the northern wastes of Canada or Siberia would qualify as locations of "extreme climates" that are "polar," and one would be correct. But by the same token, if one wants to talk about "polar" conditions where there actually is land at one of the poles, and where conditions are certainly "extreme", then Antarctica is the only candidate. And that raises a few prickly questions of its own on this porcupine of a story: why would a company providing "logistical" services to "expeditions" in "extreme climates" be testing what looks like a satellite with a balloon, and parachuting said "satellite"  into the Arizona desert near the town of Kayenta. (Believe it or not, I've been to Kayenta a few times, and I can assure the reader that it's as "in-the-middle-of-nowhere" as any place can possibly be.) And it appears to be a test, since what was discovered was a "satellite." It may or may not be a satellite, but assuming it is, why would a company design a satellite with parachutes?

On and on we could go, but I think you get the idea. Something rather peculiar is going on in the deserts around Kayenta, Arizona, and in my high octane speculation view, it may have something to do with Antarctica.

But wait, there's more... There's also that story about the discovery of the "monolith"  in Arizona's neighboring state to the north, Utah. This one is long on vagueness and short on details:

The Utah Department of Public Safety helicopter was assisting Utah Division of Wildlife Resource officers counting bighorn sheep when the crew spotted something mysterious from above.

The discovery was made Wednesday.

“One of the biologists is the one who spotted it and we just happened to fly directly over the top of it,” said pilot Bret Hutchings. “He was like, ‘Whoa, whoa, whoa, turn around, turn around!’ And I was like, ‘what.’ And he’s like, ‘There’s this thing back there – we’ve got to go look at it!’”

The crew circled back and landed the helicopter to take a closer look. They couldn’t believe their eyes.

Tucked in a red rock cove was a shiny metal monolith protruding from the ground.

“I’d say it’s probably between 10 and 12 feet-high,” Hutchings said. “We were kind of joking around that if one of us suddenly disappears, then the rest of us make a run for it.”

Hutchings said it didn’t look like it was dropped into the ground from above. It was firmly planted there.

“We were, like, thinking is this something NASA stuck up there or something. Are they bouncing satellites off it or something?” Hutchings questioned.

That said, the crew decided it didn’t appear there was any scientific purpose to it. Hutchings said it looked as if it was manmade – perhaps more of an art form than any kind of alien lifeform.

“I’m assuming it’s some new wave artist or something or, you know, somebody that was a big (2001: A Space Odyssey) fan,” Hutchings said, referencing a scene in the movie.

Because the monolith was in an area the crew feared amateur adventurers might get stuck, they were intentionally vague about its location.

The group left with pictures and videos but few answers.

And that, dear readers, is almost  the entirety of the article. Needless to say, I have some suspicions here: some folks from the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources are out in a helicopter counting bighorn sheep, when suddenly one of them spots a "metallic thing" - the "monolith" - sticking out of the ground that's tucked away in "a red rock cove". They land the helicopter and take photos and videos, but do not disclose the location because they all feared "amateur adventurers might get stuck." Except I rather suspect that the whole purpose of the "monolith" and whoever put it there is precisely to stoke public curiosity so that more and more people make the trek to find it for themselves. (A little investigation with air traffic control?)

In other words, the "monolith" appears to have the same function as the "monolith" in Stanley Kubrik's 2001 A Space Odyssey: it's perhaps an alchemical object designed to provoke curiosity and transformation of consciousness.

Funny thing, too, the pictures of its location show red rocky formations, such as one encounters in southern Utah around Zion State Park and eastward, and that means, just north of Arizona, and Kayenta just happens to be in the very northeast of Arizona, in the area of the big state and national parks of southern Utah...the whole area, from southwestern Utah/northwestern Arizona, to the area around Kayenta in northeastern Arizona, has similar landscape. One wonders,then, if in some strange way, these stories might be related.

See you on th... oh yea, about the update. Just days after the "monolith" was "discovered," it appears to have been removed by whoever put it there, or, as the article below suggests, was stolen? Either war, a telltale sign, perhaps, that the jig was up and the game was over...

‘Aliens took it back?’ Utah monolith mysteriously DISAPPEARS, possibly stolen at night

See you on the flip side...

    Well…looks like monolith season is in full swing.

    Article from the Daily Telegraph is behind paywall so I’ve pasted a short quotation.

    “ Local mayor says there is ‘no reason to panic’ after strange object appears on a hillside outside Piatra Neamt in the north of the country”

    “ The four-metre tall upturned triangular prism appeared on Thursday on a hillside outside Piatra Neamt in the north of Romania, close to an important archaeological site.

    A dark metallic structure that appears covered in concentric circles, it was spotted a few metres away from the well-known archaeological landmark the Petrodava Dacian Fortress, an fort built by the ancient Dacian people between 82 BC and AD 106.

    • OrigensChild on December 1, 2020 at 8:40 am

      Remember the dancing Israelis near in NYC after the great building collapse engineered by some distant Islamic terrorist? (Yea, right.) Well, now we have the dancing monoliths! From Utah to Romania… Hhmm… I wonder if the Blue Chicken cult is all excited… If it were not for the historical precedence of these things and the existence of certain mystery schools and secret societies I would be less concerned. One more and we will see the outline of a pattern–or trend.

      • Jen on December 2, 2020 at 1:29 pm

        OC, maybe the monoliths will become the next symbolic travelling circus since the Arch of Palmyra (Baal) went on the road.

  2. goshawks on December 1, 2020 at 4:46 am
    “A handful of theories have surfaced so far, including the monolith being a leftover Westworld prop or possibly the work of minimalist sculptor John McCracken.”

  3. marcos toledo on November 30, 2020 at 7:35 pm

    What next a crashed UFO well our elites think we deplorables have the minds of twelve-year-olds.

  4. goshawks on November 30, 2020 at 7:02 pm

    On the ‘crashed satellite’, I have a more mundane explanation. No one saw the ‘crash’, to my knowledge. The object was assumed to be a sat from its shape. And the red object to its left was assumed to be a parachute, also from its shape.

    My thought is that it is an unfolded power & communications module. The red bag looks just about the right shape to hold this module when folded-up. My guess is that a Polar employee set it out for testing, and it got ‘discovered’ by accident. Whether Polar is involved in “black” government stuff is another matter…

    The ‘monolith’ looks like either someone’s art or a classic misdirection Op. In one close-up, you can see little rivets or screws holding the sides together. Pretty primitive for a 2001 monolith…

    • Scot Cottage on November 30, 2020 at 11:32 pm

      What if the monolith was part of a temporary private image definition test of a monitoring from space technology .. from our own tech toxxine dr. strangelove, & private island owning WHOdat ?

        • FiatLux on December 1, 2020 at 6:12 am

          I think that’s a bingo, goshawks! There’s been a lot of that kind of testing, I believe, over the last few years. Part of it is about seeing what kind of disinfo “sticks,” where it travels, how fast, etc. No doubt this data helps them refine their psyops. Obviously, some of it is about misdirection, getting people to focus time and attention on x (or q?) while the banksters et al. are busy doing y.

      • Scot Cottage on December 1, 2020 at 8:21 am

        Pure speculation but the search for ‘rare earth’ elements needed for everything from musk motors to space electronics, if they could be found on planet, would be a huge asset seeing how China controls the neodium market through the closing of the California mines. What was all that fuss about the Bundy ranch if not mineral discovery & mineral rights?

        • Jen on December 1, 2020 at 12:17 pm

          SC, I read somewhere that one of the few places on Earth to have abundant, rare, Lithium, required for batteries was Afghanistan! Hmmmm!!
          Just goes to prove that Geography is History and History is Geography!

          (And apparently a monolith has now turned up in Romania.)

          • Scot Cottage on December 1, 2020 at 7:48 pm

            Mineral rights on land even suspected of value is usually retained by prior land grant holders. In Eastern Washington where uranium may be found was known about in the 1800’s probably determined by the Royal Observatory / National Research Institute for Astronomy and Geophysics est. cira 1839. Rights for tempory use were assigned later to the Radium Chemical Company most likely a Trust asset of the Royals banksters.

  5. Pierre on November 30, 2020 at 3:46 pm

    If I were to haul nuclear power plants up there on satellites I would want them to have a parachute, just in case.

  6. Richard on November 30, 2020 at 3:44 pm

    . . . Thought provoking or not, conscious level raising or not, wherever that monolith thing came from and went, it hasn’t shown up in my backyard. Sorry guys, no photo op to be had here. Just the occasional mark leaving abduction.

    One doesn’t have to go to Antarctica for ET. Despite RADAR tracking facilities a few miles away they come here at their own leisure and usually unannounced. Most likely hold overs from the days of Ike and agreements. As they’re not all the same, makes one wonder about that thing, prop, or misplaced item of current and future stories. You know, the stuff of means, motive, and opportunity towards answers if there were any illegal more terrestrial origins for that incident.

    At any rate, “Who do you suppose has 8-inch fingers for grappling lower legs, anyway?” Measured those three circumferential marks. Like that monolith, extra-high, those marks do not stick around, either. A camera is in the ready position this time for next time assuming there is a next time of times. The camera battery is fully charged this time. What a disappointment it was not to have it ready last time. Black light bar is ready for any lingering phosphorescence should that be notable and observable.

    Can’t blame those long-fingered fellas (don’t really know their gender(s)) for the extra-long grips. The one time one was able to get away from their controlling mind sync, . . . nearly gave one of those exam-slab-associates a hard-swift-kick. . . T-h-a-t f-e-l-t r-e-a-l-l-y GOOD, too, to momentarily break free, given how many times they ticked me off. They’re not all superior mind controlling folk if you get my drift. God fearing out of respect and humility, is one thing, . . that lot ain’t.

    As for Monolith, Inc., it’s another anomalous sequence of events pending more details.

    • Sandygirl on December 2, 2020 at 10:26 am

      Really, I’m not the only person here to have an unfortunate interview?

      I did hear the monolith was by Moab which has tons of atv traffic which makes it easier to haul material. I was also wondering if the monolith was “placed” in dirt or drilled into hard rock. Makes a difference on the talents of who put it there and who took it out.

    Sometimes electronic sensors are hidden in odd objects to hide what they are; or to test how long it takes for them to be discovered and reported on.

      given the swift removal of the monolith, to me it feels like a geocaching competition, for which bragging rights is accomplished by replanting the prize on a large land holding.

      • Nidster - on November 30, 2020 at 10:43 pm

        Thank-You!!! just gave us one of the best ideas anyone has offered so far. It is well known in ancient times that explorers used ‘markers’ as a place-holder for claiming land. They were typically placed in geological locations that had some importance. Do research on Scot Wolter. He examined the Kensington Rune, a carved, stone tablet. We learned much ‘new’, important history from his work.

  8. Robert Barricklow on November 30, 2020 at 1:00 pm

    These stories are related.
    First, in the NWO agreed upon narrative.
    Second, in the strangeness.
    Third in the geographical location.
    4th in the alchemical objectives
    5th in the ongoing, never-ending experimentation on the public through social media AND w/assistance and/or coupled w/CERN type hidden technologies.
    6th data capture that is [7th] winnowing down the digital dark side of mirroring “human”.
    8th is yet to come? The “new” MH 370[as monolith] ongoing narrative?

        Now, I’m thinking, the choice between two propaganda sources working under the same umbrella media organization.
        Really, both sources are controlled basically by the same organization[s]; looking to achieve the same control/goals.

  9. Winston1984 on November 30, 2020 at 12:06 pm

    This is not the first of it’s kind. There was another monolith discovered which Michael A. Hoffman points out in his book “Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare”. It’s actually on the cover of the book; and as it notes on the copyright page, the monolith appeared in Seattle, Washington on New Year’s Day 2001….and it magically disappeared as well…

    Ah, the Utah monolith story… Parachuting satellites in Arizona… Martian looking terrain… Alchemical year with Mars active in the November sky… Someone is playing with memes I’d say.

    Leave it to me to play devil’s advocate here, but it’s hard for me to imagine, with the data we have available, to suggest the two stories have a common origin. I agree the two stories may be related. The Arizona story is compelling enough to suggest a secret space program connection. The second one, though, smells like a diversionary tactic targeting the alternate historical community–especially those with an ancient alien/blue chicken orientation. If you want to shift the attention of that community away from the election and recent geopolitical conversations and go back to the high desert strangeness of UFOology, this one is tailored made. I find it very difficult to believe this one was there all this time without anyone noticing it–and it feels like a stunt that is similar to the Georgia Guide-stones in Georgia. That one was permanent, whereas this one was transient. The other option? A message between two groups indicating the end of one operation–and the beginning of another… A new phase… Again, Dr. Farrell’s alchemical suggestion confirmed my initial suspicions after reading his take on the story.

    • SpaceWombat on November 30, 2020 at 10:29 am

      Yes seems like some kind of distraction/stunt. Is it me or does the rock on the left behind the monolith look like the head of an alien lizard creature popping out. And on the right rock face a ghostly face (like from the movie Scream) from the right angle?

    • Joseph P. Farrell on November 30, 2020 at 6:31 pm
