I just watched your debut episode of your QUESTIONS EVERYTHING, and after also seeing your hosting the DMT documentary (which I contributed to via Kickstarter), I wanted to suggest you apply the one to other, namely the blurry line between the dimensions, which non-corporeal beings can notice as easily as dogs can discern smells and follow trails we can't. Sasquatch can follow these ley lines in and out of our 3-D space/time as easily as we can find and step in and off the bus.
Naturally you have a show so you have to go by the 'book' - but the books hasn't led anywhere on the Bigfoot question in eight hundred years, so maybe you should look a little farther back and/or inwards (there's no difference, which you should know if you've 'been to the mountain' as they say). Your show even had one unarguable clue, which you never followed up on: the crazy looking Sasquatch-esque child psychologist who was searching in the hot spot woods behind his house with his trail cams and recorders for years to no effect, then one night gave up and left them all behind and went out there with no cameras or recorders, just an open heart and some offerings, and within a half an hour had his encounter.
Naturally as mired in conventional thinking as you are (on this show at least) it wouldn't occur to you that most of our terrestrial ancestors along the alien DNA hybrid lines can read minds and look forward and backwards along time lines of events as easily as we can pick up where we left off in a cheap novel. We've got skills they don't, but that isn't one of them. We have the grey matter for it, but the DNA code that would help us access it has been artificially disconnected at the dawn of our creation, like birds who are DNA-altered to be bred with clipped wings.
You also could have traced this all back to the Pacific Northwest Native American tribes, who consider these being ancient power animals, naguals, spirit beings, ancient ones; in Greek mythology they were called titans, in other sources cyclops, giants; in the bible Nephilim (and Goliath was probably one). In Celtic myth, the Green Man; in Buddhism, the Yeti. Maybe not all of them were able to traverse in and out of our physical plane the way the current crop do, but they've been evolving for far longer than we have.
The lack of evidence of skeletons is a tell-tale sign that they don't often die in this plane, or maybe ever in the way we understand it. Squatches don't give birth so much as split off from each other like plant cuttings; so they're also rooted in with the Green Man archetype as well as Eve being pulled from Adam's rib. Such beings would be able to, like the aliens, like demons, like all other paranormal entities, be able to move in and around our linear time, to wink in and out of not just our material plane, but our vision, our time frame, our frequencies of perception. You can't call them ghosts, but they work on the same frequency, they are ghosts in the sense of how UHF signals in the days before cable would 'ghost' with double images, and leaks over from other channels. When we see a 'squatch we're really seeing just a more fleshed-out interactive version of a ghost, a footprint rather than the foot, an echo across time, as real and maybe even more so than we are, for they understand they are an echo, and we think we're solid. We place all our faith in an illusion: that time, space, and matter are 'permanent' in some way, and that our tiny little life span is all there is. Fatally as well, we mistake our aptitude with technology and culture as being superior to their hairy monosyllabic lifestyle.
"God" was displeased with what he had created, so he destroyed it all, saving a few choice bits in an Ark packed with the few 'new generation' already around. We, the second batch, had our 'junk DNA' disconnected at the dawn of our creation; our maker didn't want us escaping into other realities like the first batch were able to. Those who had learned to escape did so with the flood, some survived because they were high in the mountains to start with. The modern equivalent would be if a huge flood wiped all of humanity out except for the Tibetans up in the Himalayas and whatever kind of Ozark mountain hill people managed to climb a tree in time -- future generations of even smaller humanoids would call these survivors the abominable snowman and the skunk ape, or whatever. They would be rather slow and small compared to us, and we'd wisely avoid detection by them, knowing if we were discovered we'd be killed, tortured in the name of science, either by them or by 'Him' who wanted us gone.
In other words, Bigfoot is our un-psionically circumcised relative. Most were wiped out in the great floods of Sumerian legend; those who lived high in the mountains -- Everest, Ranier, etc.--survived, because the water line of the great floods never reached them. These survivors knew their creators, the Anunaki, had launched the flood, to sift the sandbox clean, as it were, so an easier to manage breed could take play -- one smaller, less hairy, less smelly, and above all, less able to access the higher cortices of the brain, unable to do the things the creators could do which carried over to their first generation, the half-and-half mixture of ape and god, if you will.
As for these ancient ones, the titans, the Paul Bunyans and the Goliaths and the Harry and the Hendersons... some of them spawned down in the swamps, like the Alan Moore version of Swamp Thing. Are psychedelic mushrooms and mold their greeting card message to us, their attempt to lead us over the barbed wire fences of our tampered DNA and into the 'good stuff'?
That's what my inner guru spirit animal told me during one of my deep shamanic meditations Q and A's. It wanted me to write this down and post it, so the information is out there, even if no one believes it or reads it, at least it's available.
As incomplete as this answer may be, it still makes more logical sense than either the mere hoax or genuine anthropoid presence hypotheses. My inner power animal is also somewhat of a trickster but tends to save its pranks for situations that will embarrass me around women -- it loves to laugh as I make a fool of myself! -- but this kind of info can never be verified, at least while science keeps it's head in the sand as far as the legitimacy of out-of-body astral travel. Still, it makes more sense than the linear 3-D space time mammal explanation, which can't account for the lack of droppings, bones, scarcity of photos, etc. It also explains the presence of UFOs near bigfoot hot spots. They're always trying to nab these clowns, these hold-outs from the period immediately preceding the dawn of Adam. Some 'good' aliens probably help them on the sly, or some might be turned against the rest, covert spy Bigfoot!
It would be a mistake to presume this is nonsense just because we can't perceive any of it in our modern science or with our 'sober' senses. If you bring a trained hunting dog into the woods you don't presume it's crazy for following a smell trail you can't smell, or accuse an expert tracker of devilty for noticing tracks you can't see. But you don't give a Bigfoot spirit credit for spotting trail cams -- to them your footprints and smell are obvious and your little gadgets offend their eye, like a toddler presuming you won't guess who drew on your wall since you can't prove it was them. They don't fall for your traps any more than you would fall for a third grader trying to talk you into buying him beer. But since they're hairy and ape-like we assume they're less intelligent than us. Sure they sometimes scare us away and go rummaging around and throwing rocks, but so do the IRA, or the Palestinians, or any other disenfranchised group being encroached on.
After all, they don't want us to stop looking for them... when we're able to make a lasting contact with them we'll be ready for the next evolutionary step; they want us to use the experience of looking to find the truth, not a dead Bigfoot carcass to dump on the front hood of science's pickup truck to confirm we're number one fuck yeah etc. Look what JAWS did for sharks? Nearly wiped them out. Bigfoot hunters would pack the woods with shotguns and guitars if it ever became 'official.'
You had another clue in the guy who talked about the squatch's ability to create antagonistic sound waves that create deep panic and even nausea, their putrid smell, etc. --both are also associated with spirit activity, perhaps a fakir kind of remote hypnosis... but you never thought to use EMF detectors like these beings were ghosts who could materialize or dematerialize at will. Such beings would never leave scat, or even eat, or sleep, or die, or be born, at least not in the way you understand it. Their forefathers who were unable to move into the spirit plane were killed back in the days of the ancient man, one slain by David, another by Odysseus, the majority sent to the spirit realm by that old devil Zeus, that Dr. Mengele of the pre-prehistoric community, Lord Enki. Sure I sound crazy - but doesn't the idea that a living 3-D 500 pound being who can nimbly prance through the forest, being attached to our permanence matrix existing without any concrete physical evidence for thousands of years measure up as crazier? Again, presuming you've done the DMT, you should know. If you haven't, why were you hosting that documentary? (PS - I haven't done it. I got there through my own amalgam of holistic methods).
Our linear-time humanity is but a single radio station on a vast and endless FM dial, that dial just one of countless other bands of frequency, more than planets in the universe, which themselves connect to these ancient bands. Us looking at Mars and saying there's no city there is like a bored cable TV flipper bemoaning no HBO shows are showing up on his local cable; he could find them all by paying for premium cable, 2,000 other cable choices are available with a little bravery. Again, you should have caught that in the DMT-verse, the unified field --it's like a giant deflated beach ball, where all spots in space and time exist in the same here and now simultaneously, then you take that ball and inflate it but near a black hole so the image of it deflated exists with the inflated overlaid, each movement creates a million potentialities.
We can see any of it if we know how to change the channel. Bigfoot is like a ghost image, but image here means sound, footprints, smell too, broken trees, everything a 'real' 3-D ape would be; we're talking a different kind of projection, you can imagine it maybe as the nuclear scientist who uses those rubber gloves that reach into a radio-active box; the bigfoot footprint, the roars, the ghostly EVPs are like those rubber gloves. This 'image' occasionally leaks over from its radio station to ours via bad weather or fevers or drugs or trances -- but they can't be fit into our paradigm; they are our future/past angel selves giving us the carrot to 'keep looking' - keep trying to find these mystery stations. Science is nice and all, but it's merely the rules of one board game in a limitless shelf of games. We need to realize that Trivial Pursuit doesn't have the same rules as Monopoly. That doesn't mean Trivial Pursuit is unplayable - just a different set of rules. Science takes Trivial Pursuit out of the box, sees there's no Park Place or hotels to buy, and deems it unplayable. The instructions to all the game are printed in hieroglyphs on the back of each of our brain box lids - DMT sharpens our vision so we can read them. so READ THEM, Joe, read them!
Sorry for the huge onslaught of metaphors... Keep up the good work! I look forward to more eps.
PS Postscript - Just saw your aliens thing... oh Joe, don't you understand you're not the first one who ever said 'show me the saucer, the alien' or I don't believe you? You're like the Habeas corpus of the paranormal, letting any murderer go free no matter who sees them do it since no one can find where they buried the body.
