Las Vegas Anomalies – Dec 2015

Las VegasSeveral odd things happened in Las Vegas in late December 2015. In a city where “odd” is a way of life, anything beyond their “normal” is especially interesting.

This is a good example of data points — a specific location, and closely connected events (times) — that may relate to my theory about alternate realities. At the moment, I’m speculating that something happened around that location… something we don’t understand, yet. And, whatever that was — a temporal distortion, perhaps — caused people to do things they’d never do in a normal setting.

Here’s what happened:

First Las Vegas Anomaly

First, a woman drove her car onto a crowded sidewalk, just outside the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. Descriptions of the event varied, but many suggested that the driver slowed the car and then hit the accelerator a second time, mowing down nearly 40 people.

At the time, the woman said that she couldn’t explain what happened, and she’d lost control of the car.

  • Per ABC News: “KSNV-TV says the crash occurred in front of the Paris Hotel & Casino and Planet Hollywood Las Vegas Resort & Casino on South Las Vegas Boulevard, north of Harmon Avenue. The crash took place about 6 p.m. The Miss Universe pageant was being held at the Planet Hollywood at the time of the crash.”

Later, news reports said she’d tested positive for marijuana, but that’s odd, as well. Per the University of Washington, “Marijuana usually has a sedating effect on most users, making it much less likely to cause violence…” Nevertheless, she described being under stress, and that can be a factor in violent behavior.

Second Las Vegas Anomaly

Meanwhile, a few hundred yards away, the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino was hosting the 2015 Miss Universe pageant.

In a baffling blunder, Steve Harvey, an experienced entertainer, crowned the wrong contestant. It’s still unclear whether he misread the card — truly odd for someone accustomed to reading from cards — or if the teleprompter script was wrong.

No matter what the explanation, Harvey crowned Miss Colombia… and then had to remove the crown and announce that Miss Philippines was the real winner.

Third Anomaly

Two nights later, Las Vegas was one of the most-reported viewing points for a bright light soaring through the night sky. Officials explained it as space debris from a Russian rocket.

That’s nothing baffling, but it is odd, since the Las Vegas sky is so well-lit by traffic and commercial signs, anything in the sky must be extraordinarily bright.

Mandela Effect Reports

Initially, readers alerted me to these “coincidences” at my Mandela Effect website. (Read the comments there; that site’s article is almost identical to this one.)

However, as the stories unfolded, I couldn’t see a clear connection to an alternate reality.

On the other hand, when I see an odd series of events like this — close in time and location — I note it as a data point to add to my Broome Theory research. I describe these as “blips” and I look for related, consistent paranormal reports that follow the same patterns.

Tinnitus as a Marker – EMF or Alt Realities

Tinnitus could be another marker, signaling a time or location (or both) where the “veil between the worlds” is thinner,  or access points between realities are available. This could be a temporary opening or something more permanent.

I’m especially interested in whether changes in tinnitus — a persistent or irregular ringing in the ears, commonly affecting about 10% of the population — are just more indication of increase EMF, or distinct markers in themselves. We’ve discussed related topics in several Mandela Effect conversations.

However, I’m not the only person to question whether tinnitus and EMF might be related. For example, people have been discussing the connection at sites such as Tinnitus Talk.

In fact, I may be fairly late to this party, as I’ve found a study that concludes, “Our data indicate that tinnitus is associated with subjective electromagnetic hypersensitivity.”

Also, this very loosely connects with Mr. Stain’s cryptic warnings that included cell phone use. However, I can see another side to the cell phone warning: not that cell phones are causing society’s demise, but that they can trigger normal tinnitus (or numb us to its steady ringing) so we aren’t as aware of the times and places where between-worlds divisions are thinner.

Either way, I’m very interested in what people notice about tinnitus in relation to all kinds of EMF variations, and all kinds of paranormal activity.

This includes perceived volume, pitch, duration, whether it’s predominantly in one ear or the other, and if a compass direction is involved. I’m also looking for patterns in tinnitus changes, related to local time and sidereal time.

This isn’t about tinnitus cures, related medical symptoms, and so on. My interest is fairly narrow, and focusing on any patterns related to paranormal activity (including the Mandela Effect) and perceived tinnitus changes — before, during, or immediately after the event — or in relation to locations associated with sacred sites, ghosts, regular UFO sightings (I’m thinking of the Marfa Lights, etc.), and so on.

Alternate Realities, Portals, and EMF Surges

door opening - sinister or letting light in?EMF (or electromagnetic field/s) may be a physical field produced by electrically charged objects. That’s what Wikipedia says. That site also says “The electromagnetic field extends indefinitely throughout space and describes the electromagnetic interaction. It is one of the four fundamental forces of nature (the others are gravitation, weak interaction and strong interaction).”

Note: The relationship between EMF and gravitation could be important, since physics studies have raised many questions about gravity, such as whether it’s leaking into our world or out of it.

If gravity can leak across supposed brane barriers, why not EMF, as well?

Until recently, I’d been focusing on anomalous (unexplained) EMF surges at apparently haunted locations. Specifically, I’ve been studying EMF spikes noted on sensitive detection devices, where the EMF may be fleeting, not repeated (at that precise location, for some time), and without apparent origin.

Many ghost hunters enthusiastically claim that the EMF represents spiritual energy, or a “ghost.” (Likewise, they point to photographic anomalies and happily believe they’re pictures of actual ghosts. If that makes sense to them, I’m happy to agree.)

For years, I’ve been a contrarian. I’m not convinced that all EMF anomalies at haunted settings are actually spirits. (I maintain that attitude about all anomalies — including “ghost photos” — recorded at sites that might be haunted. I believe in ghosts. I believe that consistent anomalies occur at sites with a history of ghostly phenomena. I’m simply not sure that all anomalies (even at profoundly haunted sites) are caused by actual ghosts.

Here’s how I look at anomalies at haunted places:

ghosts and anomalies with overlap


I believe some EMF spikes occur when a door between realities opens, and — like gravity — electromagnetic energy leaks into our world. (One of my 2008 articles on this topic: EMF Reality Check – Are EMF Really Ghosts?)

I don’t want to spoil anyone’s happy investigations, if he or she is content to believe that the EMF spike on a K-II meter, Ovilus, or Ghost Meter Pro is actually Great-Aunt Harriet. For all I know, that particular encounter might represent spiritual energy from the beloved aunt.

However, I think that some EMF is leaking through portals (or access points between realities), and that these same points are where ghosts, faeries, and possibly Bigfoot or even UFOs are entering and exiting our world.

I’m not an expert in the latter two fields, and haven’t made up my mind about them, but I don’t want to leave out anything that might fit this theory. From a somewhat sci-fi perspective, it’s possible other civilizations have mastered use of these portals, and use them to visit other worlds. For all I know, it might save fuel or time, or both.

The Hum, mysterious booming sounds, and even EVP (electronic voice phenomena, sometimes believed to be voices “from the other side”) might come through.

Here’s what that Venn diagram looks like, as I imagine it:

anomalies of all kinds, in a combination of realities


And, those same points might be available for human transference, resulting in what I’ve described as the Mandela Effect, or cross-reality travel that results in alternate memories (history that doesn’t match this reality).

It’s a highly speculative theory. I’m not sure how likely any of this is.

However, I think it’s as good an explanation as any, related to EMF at paranormal locations, and I think it opens many avenues (no pun intended) for research into a variety of odd and paranormal phenomena.
