BEYOND THE FOREST

A few words of introduction…I am, in my adult life, a licenced architect (Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin, with Florida and Utah pending!), interior designer, photographer & emerging writer.  I’ve had experiences and encounters with the EC (see below…!) since I was a child, living in South Dakota.  At the age of seven/eight, I had my first experience with the EC, although I did not realise it at the time. It was perched in a tree in the woods behind our house, and I was not frightened of it, not at all.

Growing up in South Dakota, I made friends with many Lakota children. They taught me many words; I have forgotten most of them, but two of them remained: Sinteĥlaĥla, which meant Rattlesnake, and Chiye-Tanka, which meant Big Brother.  I did not know what it meant, however; when I asked the other boys about it, they just shrugged, and said, “Big Brother; he watches us.”  Later, of course, I realised what they had meant, and I was astonished to think of the many times I had played in the woods, and I wondered….

Further interactions occurred in the winter of 1977, just before we moved to Illinois. Since then, I’ve had many other encounters, not all of them peaceful, not all of them dangerous, but all of them memorable. Along the way, I’ve realised my true passion within this field: the study, analysis and interpretation of EC-related branch assemblies, glyphs and stick structures. Many of these are highlighted in my Reports, categorised by location (Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, et al) and by year (mainly from 2007 onward, although some Encounter Reports go back further!).

Some years ago, I took up shamanic work, in an attempt to better comprehend my life, in a positive fashion. I was guided by a very wise Lakota shaman. When I would ask him questions, he would listen carefully, and think a long time, before he spoke.  He explained the name Chiye-Tanka.  To the Lakota, they are the Big Elder Brothers; they are not to be feared, but they are not to be approached.  Chiye-Tanka resonated with me; I thought it appropriate, and asked the shaman if I might use it. “No,” he answered, “You are not Lakota.  Big Brother is an acceptable term,” he said. “The word ‘Bigfoot’ is a white-man’s name; the concept of it is distasteful.”

I use the term Elder Children, or EC; I have used it since.  I use it in respect; I use it in remembrance; I use it in gratitude.

Cheers,

Field Report 11.12.2016: Rutland Gate

FIELD REPORT 11.12.2016

To open the Report, simply double-click on the words “FIELD REPORT” above, and the PDF file will open for you; you may then download the file to your own computer, or read here, at your leisure.

Substantiation of this Report may be based upon my own investigations at Rutland Gate, which began in the autumn of 2014,[1] [2] and which have continued, albeit sporadically.[3] [4] [5] [6]  Further substantiation is minimal, at best; there are no published reports for Green, Jefferson, Rock, or Walworth Counties on the BFRO website, [7] although reports for Dane and Waukesha Counties are available.[8] [9]  Nonetheless, a cursory review of same suggests considerable activity in this region.

The combination of physical, visual, audible and/or olfactory events described in this Report are: 

  1. The long, forked branch, appended to the large, twisted-off tree on the cycling path;
  2. The smaller, twisted-off sapling observed beneath same;
  3. The small piece of white cotton felt, pinned to a high branch above the ravine;
  4. The possible observation of…something…standing across the ravine, looking at us;
  5. The sudden, rapid disappearance of same;
  6. The pair of twisted-off saplings, aligned directly to the large branch assembly;
  7. The small, twisted-off sapling observed in the hollow;
  8. The large, shelter-like branch assembly observed in the hollow.

These behaviours, and the history of my own experiences, may be considered sufficient to suggest the presence of EC [10] at Rutland Gate, in the late autumn of 2016.

The time discrepancy, as evidenced by my mobile text message and my wristwatch, requires careful and further review; I have not yet examined the time-stamps upon my photographs. Without additional, substantive confirmation, no conclusion should be inferred or comprehended.  Again, it should be noted that this discrepancy appears remarkably similar to my experience at Rutland Gate on 3 October 2016.

An unusual number of subjective events also occurred.  While these cannot be considered conclusive evidence, neither should they be discounted. Although it is reasonable to review the impact of non-objective stimuli in this Report, such effects, while personally quite vivid and at times overwhelming, are nonetheless nearly impossible to substantiate with any measure of certainty.

[10] EC, in this context, stands for “Elder Children”, as usual.
