Interdimensional Bigfoot Part 1

Posted by: Ken Gerhard on October 24th, 2016

It seems like every time I turn around these days, someone is asking me if I think Bigfoot could be Inter-dimensional. Last night, back-to-back callers on Coast to Coast asked me the exact same question. While I’ll always acknowledge that our understanding of the Universe remains limited (and therefore anything is possible), I’m also compelled to ask (and please don’t think me a smart ass) – Why are so-called Bigfoot portals always in wilderness/forested areas? Why isn’t anyone seeing Bigfoot at JFK Airport? Or in the suburbs of Omaha? Or in Belgium? The most logical reason in my personal opinion is that Bigfoot is a highly intelligent, rare and elusive hominid that lives in very remote habitats, which are beneficial to its survival.

    “Why are so-called Bigfoot portals always in wilderness/forested areas?”

    Because that’s where the lockers are. They don’t put the lockers in populated areas because they get broken into.

    Yes… that’s it.

  2. dconstrukt responds:

    maybe it doesn’t appear jfk cuz its a F’n city and this thing supposedly lives in the forrest?

    just a hunch.

  3. shownuff responds:

    I never believed Bigfoot is or was able to transport or any of the tricks these so called experts claim they do. If one popular youtuber that has a channel claims Bigfoot can fly then the rest of the other so called experts are going to claim the same thing as well. I can’t stand that. I have always stated that Bigfoot is on a whole different level of body mechanics. They can do things we can never do. Unless we start to manipulate our DNA to make Men of Great again. Sorry that’s a bible quote. Till then Bigfoot community stop drinking that purple stuff.

  4. Fhqwhgads responds:

    “The most logical reason in my personal opinion is that Bigfoot is a highly intelligent….” Really, the ONLY evidence for Bigfoot being “highly intelligent” is that although there is an abundance of suggestive evidence (sighting reports, blurry photographs, footprints, etc.), there is no positively conclusive evidence — therefore, the thinking goes, Bigfoot must be some sort of genius able to avoid ever leaving such conclusive evidence. OK, there are a tiny minority of reports that involve Bigfoot using either human speech or speech that can be learned by humans, and likewise a small number of people who claim to have been in telepathic contact with Bigfoot — but both these claims really represent a VERY small part of the total. There are no real claims of Bigfoot having a material culture — certainly no more of a material culture than a gorilla has, at any rate. If Bigfoot has poetry or religion or songs or dances or history or really any other trappings of culture, it seems to have been unwitnessed or unrecognized. By *sheer coincidence*, no doubt, Bigfoot seems to live in the same places as grizzlies and to have the same lifestyle as grizzlies (except perhaps for not hibernating) — there is really no reason to think Bigfoot is more intelligent than a grizzly, except we have grizzlies in zoos and mounted in museums.

    The real puzle with Bigfoot is that ALL of the explanations have problems — including, of course, the idea that all of the sightings are hoaxes, mistakes, or hallucinations. The “biological ape” theory has problems; the “relict human” theory has problems; the “forest spirit” theory has problems; the “interdimensional being” theory has problems; the “tulpa” theory has problems.

  5. Goodfoot responds:

    I guess the “problem” is that we are just not on the same wavelength as Bigfoot (most of us, anyway). Not surprising for a creature that witnessed the treatment of the American Indians and African slaves. I’m willing to bet, though, that they know a LOT more about us than we know about them. While our reputation didn’t precede us, I’m sure they were sneaking some good looks at the strange, pale new critters in town and on the mountains and prairies.

    But I was more captivated by Fhqwhgads’ apparent belief that material culture is the hallmark of the advanced species. While I regard this notion as a bit strange, it is a very prevalent belief. It appears to be the case on this, the only inhabited planet of which we have experience. But is it a universal principle? How can we possibly even hazard a guess at this point? It does not seem hard for me to imagine a culture that reached a point in its evolution where it no longer has anything to prove to itself or to others. At that point, the physical trappings of “culture” and “civilization” may become utterly meaningless to such a culture. A culture that has outgrown culture, if you will.

    For such a “culture”, the remote mountains and wilderness would provide a perfect habitat. It possesses everything they need and none of the things they don’t. None of the annoyances that they outgrew. Such a “culture” may no longer value song, poetry or dance, either. Maybe not even storytelling, who knows?

    I sure don’t. I’m just a dreamer who’s visited past his bedtime, and maybe yours too. I think we’ll know the answers someday. When I say “we” I don’t mean myself – I don’t anticipate such a momentous thing in my remaining time, but I mean we as an endangered species will know, probably when they decide to tell us. Because they have something important to tell us about ourselves; something about ourselves that we’ve forgotten.

    “But I was more captivated by Fhqwhgads’ apparent belief that material culture is the hallmark of the advanced species. While I regard this notion as a bit strange, it is a very prevalent belief.” AS I SAID, I am willing to consider EITHER material culture OR “poetry or religion or songs or dances or history or really any other trappings of culture” — and the evidence for any of these is zip, nada, nothing. The evidence is lacking that Bigfoot is anything more than a cultural obsession that sometimes manifests itself as hoaxes and at other times as misperceptions or even hallucinations, but Goodfoot wants to believe that NOT ONLY does the species exists, but that it is intelligent — the intelligence explaining the lack of evidence that it exists, and the lack of evidence that it exists being the only evidence of its intelligence. That’s a nice, tidy, bundle. Maybe the world is full of Godzilla monsters, too — and they’re even more intelligent, because there is no suggestion whatsoever that they are real. Heck, once we start down that road, we can imagine any monsters we want, just so long as we say, “Ah, but they are so clever they leave absolutely no evidence for their existence!” You can believe in the Cthulhu mythos or My Little Ponies, or both simultaneously, with that kind of “reasoning”.

    Well, if that’s what you want to believe, knock yourself out. Time to move on to the next thing that amazes the Cryptomundian community: Why the wider world thinks that people believing in an intelligent Bigfoot are nuts completely disconnected from reality. It must be an unfair bias caused by jealousy of your almost Bigfoot-like intelligence. Yeah, that’s it.

  7. Goodfoot responds:

    I didn’t ask you or anyone down the road. You went of your own volition.

    “The most logical reason in my personal opinion is that Bigfoot is a highly intelligent, rare and elusive hominid that lives in very remote habitats, which are beneficial to its survival.”

    I often have a reservation at saying highly intelligent, as many people then want to conjecture that means more intelligent than humans, or at least intelligent enough to craft tools and since tools aren’t found, it mustn’t exist.

    If Sasquatch exists, I’d personally place it as having the brain size similar to Australopithecus afarensis, perhaps Homo habilis. While not being as intelligent as a human, it would likely be the most intelligent wildlife in North America.

    There is a good article on the relationship between body size and brain size constraints in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.
