Could it be that impossible creatures and craft from unimaginable worlds are able to intrude upon ours at will? Real Estate magnate Robert T. Bigelow thought so and assembled a team of scientists and researchers to find out if “Skinwalker Ranch” could be a portal to all manner of weirdness. In order to obtain verifiable data, accepted scientific methods were applied to observation and analyzation at the Sherman family property, by Bigelow’s newly formed National Institute for Discovery Science. Although they encountered a significant number of anomalies, ultimately they could provide no conclusive explanation for these bizarre events – as far as we know. It leaves us to wonder if the Scientific Method can be applied to paranormal events, however, a possible explanation regarding the origin of these incursions into our world might be found in the models currently being worked out in the field of Theoretical Physics and “The Theory of Everything.” While our best minds “do the math” on the mechanics of our universe and existence, consider this: as frightening as any monster you could encounter at Skinwalker Ranch is the realization that there are aspects of our reality that are beyond our comprehension and control.

Tonight’s Quote:

“Haven’t you ever had a dream?”

— Billionaire Robert Bigelow, the current owner of Skinwalker Ranch and Bigelow Aerospace in an August 24th, 1999 Reno Gazette-Journal interview, after he was asked why he would invest hundreds of millions of dollars into space travel.
