  • Quotes

    • (intro for The Curse)

      Any archaeologist who is about to unseal and enter an ancient burial site does so with a degree of caution, and perhaps even trepidation. For archaeologists are especially aware of the sudden and untimely deaths which befell most of those who entered - and some say defiled - Egyptian king Tutankhamen's final resting place. These events are the basis for the legend of the Curse of the Mummy's Tomb. Could the power of an ancient curse reach into the present? In case file #631136 the OSIR was compelled to consider this possibility.

    • (extro for The Curse)

      Some myths, like mushrooms, grow in darkness. It is only under the light of scientific scrutiny that we are able to separate superstitious and fantastic causes of fatalities from ones which are actually biophysical in nature. Curse or no curse, the message seems to be clear - leave the dead to rest in their places of peace.

    • (intro for Angel on a Plane)

      To some, a miracle may be an act of God, to others it's ordinary people performing incredible feats in extraordinary situations. When the OSIR was engaged to investigate mysterious occurrences during a crisis aboard a private aircraft, they were confronted with the analysis of a seemingly miraculous event.

    • (extro for Angel on a Plane)

      Do angels really exist? Several national publications have run cover stories focused on man's belief in these celestial beings. Now officially this file remains unresolved, but the material contained therein certainly seems to indicate that divine forces occasionally direct messengers to assist us in a beautiful and comforting way.
