Topic: Paul Laffoley
During a CAT scan of his head in 1992, a piece of metal 3/8 of an inch long was discovered in the occipital lobe of his brain, near the pineal gland. Local Mutual UFO Network investigators declared it to be "an alien nanotechnological laboratory." Laffoley has come to believe that the "implant" is extraterrestrial in origin and is the main motivation behind his ideas and theories.
In the summer of 2001, Laffoley fell from a 20-foot ladder and broke both legs. His right leg subsequently became infected and was amputated below the knee. He documented some of his theories about why his fall occurred in the oil painting The Fetal Dream of Life into Death (2001-02).
After the destruction of the World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2001, Laffoley was one of a number of architects who, in 2002, submitted designs for the competition to plan the Freedom Tower. Laffoley took his inspiration from the work of Catalan architect Antoni Gaud Â. His conception was to plan a gigantic hotel in the style of Gaud Â's Sagrada Familia church in Barcelona.
Apparently, the claim is that the wealth of metaphysical information called his 'work' is derived from this piece of alien technology discovered inside of his skull.
