IT Can't Be Frozen?!

Scary clown with helium balloon...He...He He?-)
If you drag the temperature scale to 0 Kelvin, every element except Helium becomes solid. 
Helium, for some reason, stays liquid.
I had no idea that Helium doesn't freeze like most gases until I heard an interview with the late author of
'The Holographic Universe' Michael Talbot where he says it at around the 18th minute in the You Tube below in an interview with Jeffery Mislove, which I included in a recent post -

The other thing that caught my attention was Stephen King's novel 'Dreamcatcher' was published in 2001.
"Dreamcatcher (2001) is a novel by American writer Stephen King, featuring elements of body horror, suspense and alien invasion.
The book, written in cursive, helped the author recuperate from a 1999 car accident, and was completed in half a year.
According to the author in his afterword, the working title was Cancer.
His wife, Tabitha King, persuaded him to change the title.
A film adaptation was released in 2003.
In 2014, King told Rolling Stone that "I don't like Dreamcatcher very much," and stated that the book was written under the influence of Oxycontin."

I've never read King's novel 'Dreamcatcher', but last night I was watching on my iPad the movie that was made from it starring Morgan Freeman.
"Friends on a camping trip discover that the town they're vacationing in is being plagued in an unusual fashion by parasitic aliens from outer space."
"The character of Colonel Kurtz in the novel, was changed to Colonel Curtis for the movie, so the audience wouldn't think it was a reference to the Apocalypse Now (1979) character, which it is in the novel.
"King's novel came to my attention when I was looking through the bestseller lists for novels released in 2001 and saw that 'Dreamcatcher' was on the list, but a bit too far down the list that year to really include it in my post about that year -
2001: The Present Can Only Be Viewed from the Past?
The only reason I wrote the post about the year 2001 was because I was writing a series of posts about the years ending in 7 at the time, but I couldn't go past the iconic pop cultural years of 2001 and 1984 without putting those years in the spotlight also.
When I was putting together my post for 1987 I was looking into Whitley Strieber who's book 'Communion' came out that year -
1987: The Present Can Only Be Viewed from the Past?
Oddly enough Stephen King hit my radar when I heard
Whitley Strieber on the Larry King (another King ironically) show on a You Tube 
Alien Abductions on Larry King CNN - Whitley Strieber
Whitley mentions another writer at the 5 minute and 20 second mark in that video, who Whitley claims is just as famous as he is who confided to Whitley that the same thing happened to him back in the late 60s .
I don't know who this writer was, but my suspicions turned to Stephen King.
I could be wrong, but if you look at Stephen King's body of work I think it's safe to say that he is tapping into something beyond his own conscious self.
Morgan Freeman turns 80 on the first of June, 2017 and 
Stephen King turns 70 in September this year.
Which all seems to hark back to Chris Knowles post that inspired my looking into those years ending in se7en -
The Present Can Only Be Viewed from the Past
The aliens from the 'Dreamcatcher' movie
The 'Dreamcatcher' movie has a main alien character who goes by the name of Mr. Grey and the alien virus is named "Ripley" after the main character of the first 'Alien' film.
Alien: Covenant = "Space Lucifer"
Released in 2017
Michael Fassbender who plays David/Walter in the new
'Alien' movie turned 40 this year, as he was born on April 2nd, 1977.
There are rumours that Michael Fassbender could be the seventh James Bond, too.
Was the Passing of Roger Moore in 2017 in the Cards?
So King appears to have combined some weird 'Communion'/'Alien' hybrid story-line together here, which is not so much an invasion of the body-snatchers, but more like an invasion of the mind snatchers, in a way.
"To portray Mr. Grey speaking through Jonesy, Damian Lewis did an impression of Malcolm McDowell."

I'm sure that would have impressed King, as we know how much King hated Kubrick's movie version of King's book 'The Shining'.
Published in 1977
I also find it bizarre that King was nearly killed a few months after Kubrick passed away in 1999.
"On June 19, 1999, at about 4:30 p.m., King was walking on the shoulder of Maine State Route 5, in Lovell, Maine.
Driver Bryan Edwin Smith, distracted by an unrestrained dog moving in the back of his minivan, struck King, who landed in a depression in the ground about 14 feet (4 meters) from the pavement of Route 5."
Stephen King
"Stephen King wrote the novel 'Dreamcatcher', while recovering from a near-fatal accident. Because of his injuries, he wrote the novel in longhand.
The accident is reflected in the story, particularly a graphic scene in which a vehicle runs down a major character."
Morgan Freeman star of the movie 'Dreamcatcher'
"The main characters in 'Dreamcatcher' hail from Derry, Maine, a fictional small town that neighbors Castle Rock, the setting of many other Stephen King stories.
Derry was also the setting for It (1990)."
"The flashback scene, where the boys first meet Duddits, is the barrens from the Stephen King film It (1990) which also takes place in Derry."
"During 'Dreamcatcher''s  theatrical release, it was preceded by the animated short "Final Flight of the Osiris." 
 It was an approximately fifteen minute film set in the Matrix universe, and was later included in The Animatrix (2003) DVD."
According to the 
"Mr. Grey's death in the film, is completely different from the book. In the movie, he is killed by Duddits in the water supply room. In the book, using their powers, both Henry and Duddits smother him to death with a pillow."
So I wonder if dreams connect us all on a deeper level somehow, giving us glimpses of the past, present and future?
Kubrick died March 7, 1999 (age 70)
Something to ponder next time you drift off to sleep, I guess?-)
Funny thing also was that I was listening to the latest Paranormal podcast with Nick Redfern talking about 
'The Roswell UFO Conspiracy' and what should it be about?
Good old Nick always playing the Devil's advocate;-)
In mid-1947, a United States Air Force balloon crashed at a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico.
Following wide initial interest in the crashed "flying disc", the US military stated that it was merely a conventional weather balloon.
Interest subsequently waned until the late 1970s, when ufologists began promoting a variety of increasingly elaborate conspiracy theories, claiming that one or more alien spacecraft had crash-landed, and that the extraterrestrial occupants had been recovered by the military, who then engaged in a cover-up."
