Is Bigfoot Psychic?

A small faction of the Bigfoot believers community thinks that the mysterious Sasquatch beast is an inter-dimensional psychic.

via ScienceBlogs:

With the appearance of a shaky 24 feet of filmstrip in 1967, Bigfoot stepped into the limelight, out from centuries of Native American myth, unsubstantiated yarns, and mysterious footprints. Ever since this footage — the so-called “Patterson-Gimlin Film” — the Bigfoot has fiercely entertained, spooked, and howled through popular consciousness, becoming as potent an icon of the region as the spotted owl — or grunge music, for that matter.

There are those, however, who take the beast very seriously. They claim that until the Patterson-Gimlin film is satisfactorily debunked, or the hundreds of other sightings they have under their belts reasonably explained, then they’re going to keep conducting the earnest field work that is the backbone of organizations such as the BFRO (Bigfoot Research Organization). To these people, the mainstream conception of the Sasquatch as being folklore or farce is a source of great and indignant offense, and it is their modus operandi to prove all the rest of us wrong with diligent scientific research of their golden calf of a cryptid, the Bigfoot.

To those who believe in him, the Bigfoot is a completely real, albeit elusive creature of unknown survival economy, native to the woods of Northern California, the Pacific Northwest, and Western Canada. He is six and a half to eight feet tall, covered in reddish-brown or black hair, with large, human-like feet and a significantly foul odor.

But this is not the beast I am interested in.

No, there exists a stranger, even more profoundly conspiracist conception of the Bigfoot: the psychic Sasquatch, a paranormal, inter-dimensional creature. As you might imagine, this causes a huge rift within the already fractured Bigfoot (BF) community. Those who support the thesis of a paranormal Bigfoot are profoundly marginalized, barred from discourse, and generally scorned in much the same way that the non-Bigfoot community — i.e. the scientific mainstream, popular consciousness, you know, normal people — scoffs at the very existence of a hairy woodland ape.

Jack “Kewaunee” Lapseritis is something of an expert on the “psychic Sasquatch.” He is the author of The Sasquatch People and Their Interdimensional Connection and The Psychic Sasquatch and Their UFO Connection.

According to the “About the Author” section of the Amazon page for The Sasquatch People and Their Interdimensional Connection:

Kewaunee Lapseritis is a social scientist who earned his Masters Degree in Science from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee; a Bachelor’s Degree in Humanistic Psychology (Minors in Anthropology and Biology) from North Adams College, N. Adams, Massachusetts, where he spent time teaching anthropology in the early 1970s. He earned a degree in Conservation from the University of New Hampshire-Durham. Kewaunee is a Holistic Health Consultant, as well as a Master Herbalist and Wellness Educator with 37 years of training and service in this field. Among many other resources for training, Kewaunee studied Herbalogy/Botany with the Ojibwa traditional shaman, Keewaydinoquay, PhD in Ethno-Botany. He is also a Master Dowser and a Sasquatch and ET contactee. Kewaunee is a world-traveled/trained herbalist who twice healed himself of cancer by natural herbal remedies and formulas. He has lectured at colleges and universities, including the Medical College of Wisconsin, been a presenter at dozens of conferences and has appeared on over 430 radio and TV programs including the Discovery Channel, been featured in numerous national and international media, and was consulted for the Sasquatch film “Letters From The Big Man.” His two published books are “The Sasquatch People and Their Interdimensional Connection” (2011), and “The Psychic Sasquatch and Their UFO Connection” (1998), and has 55 years of research and personal experience with the Sasquatch People. He is a world authority on the subject.

Kewaunee runs the page sasquatchpeople.com and describes his newest book, The Sasquatch People and Their Interdimensional Connection as:

Kewaunee’s new book is the ultimate book on the Sasquatch phenomenon. Because the Sasquatch are genuinely people—not animals—Kewaunee is a crypto-anthropologist, not a crypto-zoologist. He elaborates on why they are humanoid beings and their purpose here, based on 32 years of interacting with the giants (and ETs) (out of the 55 years researching them). Kewaunee draws information from 187 witnesses who also experienced telepathic communication. Quantum physics describes the reality of mental telepathy, invisibility, inter-dimensionalism, and other PSI phenomena, and is actually juxtaposed with psychic Sasquatch and ET behavior.

Kewaunee has been successful in his research because of his benign, spiritual, field methodology (no guns or cameras)—not unlike Dr. Jane Goodall’s approach with chimpanzees, except the Sasquatch are highly evolved nature people. They are terrestrial extraterrestrials, living inside giants’ bodies. In his book, the forest giants reveal a salient message to humanity—that the planet is dying at the hands of exploitative man and in 2012 there will be a huge shift in human consciousness that most earthlings are ill prepared to face. The Sasquatch people, who are the ultimate environmentalists, want to share their ancient wisdom with the human, but few are listening.

I also found a podcast where Kewaunee talks about this book–skip to about 3:00 to start hearing the conversation.

    Odd that they would feel the need to caveat “Patterson-Gimlin Film” with “so-called.”

      I thought the same thing when I was reading her article. Bizarre.

    This whole issue is kind of like a high-school debate. as far as I know, the whole psychic argument started when mainstream scientists started to argue against the bigfoot/loch ness monster phenomena by pointing out that similar species have such a large minimum population group required for successful breeding that it is very unlikely that we would not be constantly finding remains, excrement, fur, habitations and live specimens. The argument against that was that “sure, there are many thousands of them, but they are invisible to all but true believers”. Because they have psychic powers. or because they are super intelligent aliens. it really comes down to a group of true believers who spend much of their time trying to come up with arguments that cannot be disproved. The rest of the time they are writing books to sell to each other. I wish these folks would stop pretending that they are doing science. It is much more like religion. A religion no stranger than many already established ones.

    The author did an interview published in the Portland paper. here are a couple of questions and answers that stand out-

    “So you’ve written that Sasquatch is an alien that was
    brought here millions of years ago but is different than what you call
    the Star People, who are more like what we would consider a typical
    alien to look like.

    Yes, but I’ve seen seven different alien
    types. There are many of them; they’re attracted to people who are
    nonviolent. They’re attracted to people who are very caring, who are
    compassionate and that care about the planet and people. And they’re
    attracted to those people, and contact them. And they’ve used me as a
    middleman between their world and ours. This summer, they’re going to
    take me through a portal to a parallel world, and they want me to write
    about it in a third book.

    What about the people who don’t want to shoot a Sasquatch, that just want to get photos of them. Do you get along with them?
    Yes, but the Sasquatch say the people with cameras want to
    exploit them, to make money from them, and they won’t allow it.”

    He will not allow anyone to make money off of his psychic bigfoot alien friends. On the other hand, you can pay up to $80.00 to hear him speak. Or you can buy his books from his website or Amazon. ( $89.58 for a copy of “The Psychic Sasquatch”)

    Just because it is very very improbable doesn’t mean it is entirely impossible. I’m thinking of the Drake Equation here since we are drawing a parallel with UFOs.
