Techno Invisibility

BY JOHN KETTLER

While natural camouflage, from two French words meaning “to cover with flowers,” has been with us in Nature for aeons in creatures as diverse as the chameleon, the octopus, the zebra and the flounder, organized camouflage in warfare, as opposed to tribal type activities, didn’t really get going until much later. The famous Japanese Ninja, for example, date back to A.D. 600, though the core ideas go back thousands of years to a Chinese book (not the man, called Sun Tzu) it wasn’t until after…

Defying Gravity

By Len Kasten

Several books and websites have appeared recently which give reports by insiders about what sort of incredible tech­nology advances have been developed in the so-called black world—the realm of secret military-scientific develop­ment.

Time Traveling for the U.S. Military

By Len Kasten

The black and white photograph shows a boy standing alone in a clearing on the Gettysburg battlefield. He is wearing a men’s Union Army parka and shoes about four sizes too large. He appears somewhat out of place since he is all alone. In the background, a large audience is assembled, and a dais is set up, while in the foreground a group of three men is in serious discussion. The photo purports to be the scene just before Lincoln began to deliver the Gettysburg…
