Caleb Charland is a Maine-based photographer who combines a love of scientific experiments and photographs into wonderful and amazing photographs. If Isaac Newton or Benjamin Franklin were into photography, their photographs might look something like these:

“Wooden Box with Horseshoe Magnet”

“Atomic Model”

“Demonstration with Hair Dryer and Aluminum Foil”

“Candle in a Vortex of Water”

“Fifteen Hours”

Regarding his work, Charland tells us,

Wonder is a state of mind somewhere between knowledge and uncertainty. It is the basis of my practice and results in images that are simultaneously familiar and strange. I utilize everyday objects and fundamental forces to illustrate experiences of wonder. Each photograph begins with a simple question “How would this look? Is that possible? What would happen if…?” and develops through a sculptural process of experimentation. As I explore the garage and search through the basement to solve these pictures, I find ways to exploit the mysterious qualities of these everyday objects and familiar materials.

What if we were not alone?

What if the hundreds of thousands of people claiming to have seen unidentified flying objects, in fact had been witnesses to extra terrestrial spacecraft?

What if the thousands of people all over the world who tell about their encounters with alien beings through friendly contact or even forced abductions, were actually telling the truth?

What if our governments had known about an ET-presence for more than half a century, if they were in possession of alien technology that had the potential of changing how our world is run, and they chose to keep the public in the dark through a campaign of informational suppression?

What if that campaign acted as a chain around the ankles of humanity, keeping us from rising to a whole new level of consciousness and understanding of our selves, our planet and the universe around us?

And what if that campaign ended tomorrow?




The Day Before Disclosure is a film documenting the growing awareness and the build up to what can potentially be the single, most important event in human history – the day the UFO and ET presence becomes a world wide accepted reality. This is the story of the witnesses that was laughed at, the researchers and reporters that wasn’t believed and the governmental and military personnel that were sworn to silence.

A story that alters the foundation of everything you thought you knew, and takes you along for a ride all the way from the darkest abyss of living nightmares, through to the brightest hope for the future of humanity.




Voices to be heard.

During the course of making this movie we found that there were some signinfigant amounts of testemonies that we were not able to fit in to the film, and would have to be posted seperatly on the website.To view these high quality videos, you need a lisens.

Robert Anton Wilson (born Robert Edward Wilson, January 18, 1932 – January 11, 2007), the American author of 33 influential books, became, at various times, a novelist, philosopher, psychologist, essayist, editor, playwright, futurist, polymath, civil libertarian and self-described agnostic mystic. Recognized as an Episkopos, Pope, and a Saint of Discordianism, Wilson helped publicize the group through his writings, interviews, and strolls.

Wilson described his work as an "attempt to break down conditioned associations, to look at the world in a new way, with many models recognized as models or maps, and no one model elevated to the truth." His goal being "to try to get people into a state of generalized agnosticism, not agnosticism about God alone but agnosticism about everything."

For years I just sort of assumed that cells were self-reproducing blobs of protein. Maybe you did too. Turns out they’re way smarter than that. You will be amazed at this video. Dr. Bonnie Bassler from Princeton University presents a beautiful TED talk on how bacteria communicate with each other by forming words out of simple molecules.

She also explains…

  • How bacteria strategize together on how to ‘take down’ their host
  • Elegant systems of bioluminescence
  • Symbiotic relationships between organisms
  • Cells speak multiple languages

Enjoy this remarkable presentation.

Mycologist Paul Stamets studies mycelium and lists 6 ways that this astonishing fungus can help save the world. Cleaning polluted soil, creating new insecticides, treating smallpox and maybe even the flu … in 18 minutes, he doesn’t get all the way through his list, but he has plenty of time to blow your mind. An audience favorite at TED2008. (Recorded February 2008 in Monterey, California. Duration: 18:18.)



I was born in the Soviet Russia in 1978. Now when I reflect on it, I believe I was born free into this wonderful world just like anyone else. I was born a human being with a life in me, intelligence, virtues, talents, ingenuity, and potential. I knew nothing about the country in which I was born into, which other countries it bordered with, which political, monetary, and social systems and agendas it followed, which war it was involved in at the time, which human beings it was depriving of homes and lives, which nations it hated and considered its enemies, what its religion and superstitions were, which laws its citizens were forced to abide by and what it will cost me in financial, intellectual, spiritual, and sexual means to be allowed to exist in that particular environment. The first breath I took, I became a Russian Orthodox female, born into the Soviet Union with an authority shouting out loud and confident that everyone never disregarded the fact that their lives, property, talents, and even thoughts belonged to the state. The first breath I took, I became a slave to a society, its culture, prejudices, and expectations. My freedom was suspended right then and I was well on my way to being transformed into a robot with as few aspirations, dreams, passions, beliefs, and principles of my own as possible; the obedient citizen who lacks critical, analytical, skeptical, and daring thinking; and a “drug addict” that doesn’t question the outside authority or norms of the society.

I believe many can envision a person put under hypnosis. The more I observed the world and its inhabitants, the more clearly I could recognize zombies moving around, overdosed on deceit, wars, blood, agony, misery, death, financial booms and busts, racism, sexism, patriotism, nationalism, antidepressants, reality shows, consumerism, super bowls, and video games to name a few; and drowning in their own fears, worries, insecurities, complexes, sexual frustrations and uncertainties; and what was puzzling to me, pleading for more.

Who is the magician and why on earth does his interest lie in such a boring and unrewarding activity? Who and why would want to surround himself with uninspiring and spiritless creatures that perish without ever discovering their talents, without ever bringing their share of greatness, brightness and sharpness to the table of our collective wealth of intelligence, wisdom and ingenuity, and making this world as strong, beautiful, prosperous, resourceful, progressive, and rewarding as it ought and could so much easily be so that we could all enjoy it, including the hypnotizer?

I do not know but I have a few thoughts on who or what it could be, how the world manipulated into insatiable killing, deceit, abuse, destruction and even self-hatred, and what is the benefit that the hypnotizer seeks.

What happens between that first breath of freedom we all take and the moment we are released from propaganda factories as highly qualified & specialized machines trained to follow precise instructions and react in certain ways when exposed to specific sounds, body shapes, colors, odors and flavors? Kings, queens, tzars, sultans, emperors, presidents & prime ministers, TV & radio sets, newspapers & magazines, literature & poetry, educators & parents mouths discharge a steady and contagious flow of hypnosis that flows into the ears of those who are tuned in, reaching, confusing and corrupting their minds and hearts. Some are faster and more susceptible to this deadly cancer than others. May I speculate that most of these sources and individuals manipulate the perceptions of others simply because they have been intimidated to do so by the hypnotizers of their own time and they should be considered victims of their own conspiracy and circumstances they find themselves in? I don’t believe that we should mistake all queens, tzars and others of blue blood, so they believe, for being the main generator of deadly poison. If we do, this will be an overestimation of their intellectual and character abilities. My observations could be wrong and conclusions made too early but I highly doubt presidents' exceptional or superior intellectual powers. I do believe that there is much randomness in every aspect of our life and the existence of our planet. However, I also believe that we are lead by some in certain directions. Do we doubt that we are manipulated into wars which allow a small clique of elites to make incomprehensible profits; divided & made to believe that one nation aims to destroy another? Or that one culture, race, sex, religion or intelligence is superior to another, while we are made frightened of another social class, allured into a financial bliss, taken advantage of and then let go crashing in a midst of the next bust; spirit broken into devastating acceptance of our own worthlessness and obediently enter of torture rooms or gas chambers, walk to a firing squad, acceptance of to be burned alive, hanged, stoned to death and or beheaded?




We are often allured into loving god, state, family, friends and even enemies before we love our own selves; taught that we are inferior to god, are dirty sinners that should beg for forgiveness on our knees; are worthless; that it is wrong to love oneself; that selfishness and pride are vices even if it means to stand for one's own rights or disallow anyone to insult one’s intelligence; and forgiveness is a virtue even in cases when a state chooses to unjustly steal one’s life to which they have no right but the one they have granted to themselves in their imagination, while shamelessly hiding behind state laws and religious prejudices. Haven’t all borders, countries, national traditions, costumes, beliefs, cultures, food, regulations, rules, policies, expectations, prejudices, superstitions, laws and even histories been created and or interpreted by us, our own selves with our own biases? Haven’t we been born free into this world of no borders, laws, prejudices or religious fanatics claiming that millions have been and are being slaughtered in the name of god according to his divine plan? Why allow anyone to submerge, destroy or corrupt our intellectual and spiritual power; deceive us into ever doubting our own potential; insult our intelligence or abuse our human rights? I believe and also propose that we abandon the illusionary road of love of someone else, whether it is god, state, man, friend or enemy and accelerate towards a road of love of one’s self. We must discover our own selves first, our beauty and ingenuity, find ‘I’, introduce ourselves to our own selves and develop a high sense of self-respect, build confidence and self-awareness. No one is better than I; I am no better than anyone else. I have no right to anyone's life; no one has a right to my life.

So, finally, who are the mysterious masterminds? I am entering an unknown territory – I truly don’t know – I can only speculate. I believe there is a very small group of people, the smartest of the smart and I by no means refer to the average person that graduated from ivy-league schools and are occupying high posts such as the presidency and so on. I believe there are men who possess the sharpest vision of the world, how it operates, a very clear understanding of human nature & behavior and how to manipulate it. They have a particular agenda driven by an insatiable greed for money & power. Here I am referring to the power of owning the world and nothing less; and in their eyes there is nothing that can or have ever stopped them from being victorious. I could be very wrong but at this level of my awareness, I admire their skill in running the whole world as if one was running a family, corporation or country and believe that there is much wisdom that can be learned from the strategy. What I cannot tolerate is that these men operate this endeavor at the expense of others’ lives and most importantly my future. I find this mesmerizing game governed by unfair and dishonest rules; therefore, it is unacceptable. I could be wrong but I do believe that there is a great chance of these men being lost and tortured souls and that all their money and power will bring them nothing but never ending anxiety, fear and hysteria over its preservation.

Therefore, I would like to state: these men are not worth our attention, they are in very small numbers whose weapon is simple hypnosis. They are very powerful, no doubt about that, but we must understand that they are imposing their philosophies on millions of also lost and tortured souls they manipulate. They are incapable of operating on their own; they must have the support of those queens, presidents, priests, and obedient and frightened citizens of the world who accepts the obsolete ideologies of Marxism, communism, fascism, patriotism, nationalism, and terrorism and shovel their absurd and laughable theories down our throats. But I have noticed that less and less people of different cultures, backgrounds and aspirations are willing to absorb that propaganda much longer; every new person deprogrammed and awakened will bring us closer to liberation. Therefore, we must focus on our primary goal - our minds must be revolutionized - we mustn't fight - we must simply reconsider our culture, gain knowledge which is power, open our minds to the views of others, learn from experience and apply that to the everyday decisions we make!



“If I have seen further, it is only by standing on the shoulders of giants.” – Sir Isaac Newton

Inventions and discoveries today are often treated as property, and in most cases, a single person or team is given credit for, or ownership of, the invention or discovery in question. While this may be an unfortunate necessity in the face of today’s capitalist society, it is in direct opposition to the true nature of science. Sir Isaac Newton knew when preparing to write what would become his defining work, the Principia, that he alone was not responsible for the ideas contained within it. Just as an artist draws from previous works for inspiration, so do scientists draw from the entire body of prior scientific discovery. To the layman, great leaps in scientific discovery may seem to be completely original, especially when considering some of the earliest discoveries such as the Heliocentric Theory. In such cases, the prevailing attitudes of the time period were quite nearly opposite in nature to the discoveries themselves. In the earliest periods, these ideals were so widespread and so dogmatically believed that such discoveries were initially decried as blasphemy (Hewitt 3). However, in each case, the advances were made based upon the use of both methods and knowledge of discoveries past. Such theories, as they lay outside the bounds of common thought, would be considered by all but those privy to knowledge of both their precursors and the relationships used to form them as original thought. While the average person, untrained and unmotivated to think in the same manner as those who made these discoveries, might think them entirely novel, the fact is that each scientific discovery after the inception of the scientific method has been an addition or amendment to, and thus derived from, a pre-existing body of knowledge. Scientific discovery, as it is based in expanding, narrowing, or contradicting prior discovery, cannot be defined as original thought.

What, then, is original thought? The online version of the Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines thought as “the action or process of thinking”, thinking being defined as “to exercise the powers of judgment, conception, or inference”. It defines original as “not secondary, derivative, or imitative”. Combining these literal definitions, original thought can be defined likewise as “the action or process of exercising the powers of judgment or conception in a manner not secondary, derivative, or imitative”. I will exclude inference from the combined definition, as it directly refers to derivation of a general idea from specifics, and thus requires a predefined set of examples from which to draw a conclusion, being in opposition to the definition of original. Using this definition, the very existence of modern original thought is debatable. It could be argued that unless something external to our accumulated body of knowledge were introduced (for example, by extraterrestrial life forms), it is highly unlikely that anything thought of by any person could be without influence or precedent. However, this is only to say that it is improbable, and not that it is impossible. From another point of view, specifically that of certain monotheistic religions, original thought has never been possible as God is defined in part by his omniscience, and thus all human knowledge is mere duplication. Considering a human-only frame of reference, I believe that original thought can and does exist, but that one must be careful to make a distinction between true originality, and perceived originality.
