Pendulum Chart – Yes/No – If you’re using a pendulum and looking for a yes, no, or maybe answer, use this chart.


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 of the 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. (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.
