Oddly enough I was also reading Whitley Strieber and Jeff Kripal's new book 'The Super Natural', where the two dissect Whitley's "Visitor" encounters that Whitley describes in his books like 'Communion' and 'Transformation'.
Whitley also writes about his encounters with a kind of divine goddess/alien/God knows what in his new book, so it struck me as odd that this picture directly below was also on the wall of the Jindabyne Visitor (?!) Centre.
I was beginning to think I was in the town of 'Twin Peaks' instead of Jindabyne, which is kind of fitting since David Bowie was in a Twin Peaks movie and also in Whitley Strieber's movie version of his book 'The Hunger'.

|Sitting outside the cinema on a cool 7 degrees celsius night in Jindabyne.|
I also found this pyramid shaped church in the backstreets of Jindabyne and right across the street from it is a mural painted on a shop wall of owls.
Strieber mentions that owls can be screen memories for "visitor" contact in his book.
Are the Powerful Owls What They Seem?

'Deep Future: The Next 100,000 Years of Life on Earth'
|Another painting hanging in the Info Centre.|
|A scene from the movie Tommy.|
And in another weird personal twist the next day in the town of Cooma I would stumble across Pete Townsend's hardcover autobiography in a book-sale for five bucks.
I'd bought $24 worth of books in the sale at this newsagent and then checked my Powerball ticket I bought in Jindabyne at this newsagent in Cooma and found I had won enough from Powerball to cover my book purchases.
It wasn't lost on me either that if you took an o out of Cooma you'd be in Coma. ;-)

Strieber and Kripal write about 'The Two Way Mirror' in their latest book also.
I'll go into the two way mirror theory in another post which will also tie into some darkly ironic Pop Cultural references and life events, which I find quite a mind boggling "coincidence".
But I will give you a hint in the picture below.
The world we live in is truly a lot weirder than most of us think and I had to laugh when I got off the chairlift at Thredbo and started my walk to the highest spot in Oz and saw this sign below.
