JUST FOR FUN
These are updated handouts from my Dragon Con presentations around 2008 – 2010. Each was in the context of a sci-fi or fantasy TV series. Of course, those shows were fictional, but some elements could be used for real research.
My presentations and these handouts were not entirely serious. Many were in a “let’s pretend” context that my audience understood. So, don’t think I go around looking for alien rifts or all-powerful artifacts. I don’t. (Dial these concepts down by about 90%, and that’s closer to my actual research.)
- Homegrown Patterns (Dragon Con presentation) – Looking for patterns in news reports. An overview for people who enjoy conspiracy theories. (This referenced the TV series, Rubicon.)
- Torchwood Notes (Dragon Con presentation) – I’m still a big fan of Torchwood. This handout is a crash course in identifying patterns related to UFOs and aliens.
- Warehouse 13 Notes (Dragon Con presentation) – This handout talks about finding powerful and haunted objects, and related artifacts. It’s somewhat tongue-in-cheek, but the basic concepts are a core part of my paranormal research.
