fortean talks, paranormal, orbs, rods, out-of-body experiences (OBEs), near-death experiences (NDEs) and reincarnation

Raven and Edgar chew the paranormal cud from their secret hideout somewhere in Cornwall.

They've tackled chemtrails, UFOs, Atlantis and even Cornish independence.

Now, though, Rake & Herald fortean editor Raven Akki and his mate Edgar with the hat ponder the paranormal, ruminating on rods; orbs; out-of-body experiences (OBEs); near-death experiences (NDEs); regression; and reincarnation.

And that's not even mentioning flying snakes with flashing lights on their heads.

Which they don't mention either.

Or do they?

Well, you'd better have a watch of the following to find out, hadn't you?

Oh yes, indeedy.

The above vids are embedded here on the fortean-tastic Rake & Herald from Raven's top-notch YouTube channel, which you can check out and subscribe to here. And while you're about it, please give Raven and Edgar's FaceBook page a like. Go on, you know you want to.

What mean fortean?

The terms fortean and forteana derive from the work of Charles Hoy Fort (1874-1932), an American journalist who catalogued anomalous and paranormal reports, ranging from frog falls and spontaneous human combustion to ghosts, cryptids and UFOs. Spending much of his time sifting through "the data of the damned" in the New York Public Library and the British Museum Library, he wrote four seminal texts based on his findings and theories, viz The Book of the Damned (1919), New Lands (1923), Lo! (1931) and Wild Talents (1932). To learn more about this home-brewing inventor of topeacho, have a read of this.
