What are we looking at when we view the Patterson film? Is this the same as what they call in the Himalayas the “Yeti”? The general consensus among the researchers is no. One must remember, however, that the level of evidence for the existence of the Yeti is about the same as that for the Sasquatch….very scant. The west coast of North America is open to the Pacific ocean. There are some good reasons to believe that the North America was visited by the Chinese in the distant past. Well…what does that have to do with the Yeti…or the Sasquatch for that matter. In John Green’s book “On the Track of the Sasquatch”, John makes an interesting observation about a forensic examination of what he believed was Sasquatch fecal matter. John observes-” It is often suggested that if the tracks can be followed, then hair and droppings can be found and examined. This has in fact been done, but with inconclusive results. I have been present when droppings of unusual appearance were collected in northern California, at a time when we had a financial backer and scientific services were available. The material was sent away for examination. It was reported to be made up of remains of California fresh water plants and to contain eggs of parasites otherwise known only in some North American tribal groups in the north western U.S., pigs from south China, and pigs and people from “SOUTHWEST CHINA”. I am satisfied that this was not the droppings of humans or pigs. ——– John Green
Well…perhaps there is a Chinese connection to the Yeti, and by extension the Sasquatch. If the Chinese did find their way to North America’s Pacific coast in ancient times, could they have had Yeti with them. Well…not likely…if the Yeti were an animal or more precisely an ape. If the Chinese regarded the Yeti as something more than an animal, then, perhaps the introduction of the Yeti to North America by the Chinese might be a real possibility. Parasites in Sasquatch fecal matter that originate from Southwest China? Where is southwest China? Here’s a map:
As you might have noticed, sitting squarely in the middle of southwest China is Nepal, and Tibet, homeland of the Yeti. Fecal matter from a Sasquatch that has parasites from Tibet? MMMM…the Chinese connection may not be so tenuous after all. Here’s some circular stones that are said to be Chinese in origin. They were found off the coast of California.
The article “New Directions in the Teaching of Human Language to Non-Humans has been removed. This is the reason why. The article, as it was seen here, was copied to me some time ago. Mr. Trey Jones has brought it to my attention that the article is not genuine in nature, but, rather, is a satirically written article that was submitted to the Website “The Speculative Grammarian”. I thank Mr.Jones for bringing this to my attention. Speculation may or may not be intended for satirical purposes. The entire article that I wrote here, about the origins of the Sasquatch is speculative, but not intended to be satirical. Evidence for the “EXISTENCE” of the Sasquatch or Yeti, is scant at best. Much that is written about it is postulation. It’s like filling in the dots, when there are not a lot of dots to fill in. The direction that it takes you is uncertain. The connection between the Sasquatch and the Yeti is no different, but the postulation that was, that they may have a common origin, did not, and does not… hinge upon Mr.Pulju’s article alone. There were already some indicators there for that, so…that postulation remains. Mr.Pulju’s article, in its intended format, may be found here. http://specgram.com/PsQ.XVI.2/05.pulju.teaching.html Thanks, M.K.Davis
When the very best images from the Patterson Sasquatch film, that show the mouth, are animated, there does indeed appear to be mouth motion that is consistent with speech. Here’s a short clip. Click on the image to animate.
