The ability to flexibly plan for events outside of the current sensory scope is at the core of being human and is crucial to our everyday lives and society. Studies on apes have shaped a belief that this ability evolved within the hominid lineage. Corvids, however, have shown evidence of planning their food hoarding, although this has been suggested to reflect a specific caching adaptation rather than domain-general planning. Here, we show that ravens plan for events unrelated to caching—tool-use and bartering—with delays of up to 17 hours, exert self-control, and consider temporal distance to future events. Their performance parallels that seen in apes and suggests that planning evolved independently in corvids, which opens new avenues for the study of cognitive evolution.

Results of our Friday night witch hunt:
We recorded magnetic auras that sent our sensors off scale, both positive and negative max.
The big stone (Coffin Rock,) gave us shifts in the low infrared spectrum that throb like a heart
at 65 beats per second.
Otherwise, nothing good.   No audio, no video, no temperature changes, but a nice night to be out
in the wilds.

Ironic, the longest witch hunt night is on the shortest night of the year.

June 9th is the FULL m00n.
Tonight, we will meet at Matchbox One Loudoun at happy hour and we will set up at both Coffin Rock and the creek before dark where:
Just four years after the founding of Burkittsville, there was an incident involving a young child named Eileen Traecle.   This small child was wading in a very shallow stream before the eyes of at least a dozen eyewitnesses,  a ghostly white hand reached up from underneath the water and pulled Eileen Traecle in to it.  The water was reportedly less than a foot deep, yet the body of the little girl was never found.  For weeks afterward, several wooden stick figures mysteriously appeared in the creek bed, and the water itself became oily and contaminated for several months.
We will set up all I've got IR cameras, Ultra-sonic mics, arora magnetic detectors, sub-sonic mics, and eye witness (like you.)
Be there.

John Whiteside "Jack" Parsons (born Marvel Whiteside Parsons;[nb 1] October 2, 1914 – June 17, 1952) was an American rocket engineer and rocket propulsion researcher, chemist, and Thelemite occultist. Associated with the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), Parsons was one of the principal founders of both the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and the Aerojet Engineering Corporation. He invented the first rocket engine to use a castable, composite rocket propellant,[1] and pioneered the advancement of both liquid-fuel and solid-fuel rockets.

Born in Los Angeles, Parsons was raised by a wealthy family on Orange Grove Avenue in Pasadena. Inspired by science fiction literature, he developed an interest in rocketry in his childhood and in 1928 began amateur rocket experiments with school friend Ed Forman. He dropped out of Pasadena Junior College and Stanford University due to financial difficulties during the Great Depression, and in 1934 he united with Forman and graduate student Frank Malina to form the Caltech-affiliated Guggenheim Aeronautical Laboratory (GALCIT) Rocket Research Group, supported by Guggenheim Aeronautical Laboratory chairman Theodore von Kármán. In 1939 the GALCIT Group gained funding from the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) to work on Jet-Assisted Take Off (JATO) for the U.S. military. Following American entry into World War II, in 1942 they founded Aerojet to develop and sell their JATO technology; the GALCIT Group became JPL in 1943.

After a brief involvement with Marxism in 1939, Parsons converted to Thelema, the English occultist Aleister Crowley's new religious movement. In 1941, alongside his first wife Helen Northrup, Parsons joined the Agape Lodge, the Californian branch of the Thelemite Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.). At Crowley's bidding, he replaced Wilfred Talbot Smith as its leader in 1942 and ran the Lodge from his mansion on Orange Grove Avenue. Parsons was expelled from JPL and Aerojet in 1944 due to the Lodge's infamy and allegedly illicit activities, along with his hazardous workplace conduct.

In 1945 Parsons separated from Helen after having an affair with her sister Sara; when Sara left him for L. Ron Hubbard, he conducted the Babalon Working, a series of rituals designed to invoke the Thelemic goddess Babalon to Earth. He and Hubbard continued the procedure with Marjorie Cameron, whom Parsons married in 1946. After Hubbard and Sara defrauded him of his life savings, Parsons resigned from the O.T.O. and went through various jobs while acting as a consultant for the Israeli rocket program. Amid the climate of McCarthyism, he was accused of espionage and left unable to work in rocketry. In 1952, Parsons died at the age of 37 in a home laboratory explosion that attracted national media attention; the police ruled it an accident, but many associates suspected suicide or assassination.

Parsons' occult and libertarian polemical writings were published posthumously, with Western esoteric and countercultural circles citing him as one of the most significant figures in propagating Thelema across North America. Although academic interest in his scientific career was originally negligible, in subsequent decades historians came to recognize Parsons' contributions to rocket engineering. For these innovations, his advocacy of space exploration and human spaceflight, and his role in the founding of JPL and Aerojet, Parsons is regarded as among the most important figures in the history of the U.S. space program. He has been the subject of several biographies and fictionalized portrayals.

Transformational Moon

Transformational Moon

Holiday Mathis
The Scorpio full moon is a magic cocoon that spins around us, shielding us from intrusion while we change form. It's the telephone booth where Clark Kent becomes Superman, the makeover chair, the tonic that Dr. Jekyll drinks, the flame that engulfs the old phoenix before it starts its young life. How do you wish to transform?

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Some things are best forgotten: pettiness, mistakes made out of ignorance, accidental slights... no good can come from dwelling there. If you can't forget, go on as though you have and you'll find that's almost as good.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Whoever said that you can't live in the past hasn't seen the glorious reenactments your vivid imagination is capable of achieving. Not only will you relive the scenario; you'll embellish and improve upon it.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You'll play by the rules today and respect those who enforce them. However, you'll apply the full extent of your might within those bounds. You're ferocious when you need to be.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). When you know you're right, you'll be willing to take great risks and use powerful tactics in order to support your side. But if there's even a shadow of a doubt about your correctness, approach cautiously and conservatively.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You've taken risks and weathered hard knocks. It's how you know the value of things. It's how you know the posers from the real deal. It's why people feel the magnetic pull of your presence.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You're talented. Sometimes you need to be reminded of this fact. Put yourself in a position to succeed. Do what you do best, and let the praise that follows boost your confidence.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Even if there's little pay and no recognition attached, the sweat, satisfaction and general character building that happens with a job well-approached is reward enough. Besides, the harder you work, the luckier your get.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When William Blake suggested, "Love seeketh not itself to please nor for itself hath any care," he wasn't considering your co-dependent tendencies. You're healthier in a love that does please you, and abundantly so.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The guilty will catch themselves eventually. You may want to speed that along. Consider carefully if it's a worthy investment of your time. If you're in a position to prevent others from harm then the answer is yes.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The confidence you have in yourself is the key that's going to help you gain the confidence of others. If you've never talked to yourself in the mirror to build yourself up, this is an excellent time to start.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). When you need the lesson, the teachers are everywhere. There are tomes of wisdom to be read in the eyes of strangers. There are sermons in the stones.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You can't make another person grow up. People do their own growing, often in spite of themselves. Nature gets the credit, really. You can, however, contribute to circumstances that favor growth. And so you will.
