The End of 2007

Although I have been a little quiet of late I thought I would end 2007 with a little update...

In the previous 6 months especially I have been drawn more and more into channeling material. Although dipping into the Pleidian and Kyron channelings I was never overly drawn to them - now it seems a more appropriate time as I can relate the channeled material to my own inner experiences and have more of a discernment which is useful for such material. I have felt more of a kinship with the Arcturian channelings - I would recommend looking at

We, the Arcturians by Norma J. Milanovich, or

I am also seeing correspondences with the Ra Material - especially since it confirms much of what Gurdjieff hinted at.

I have found great resonances with the communications from the Arcturians, and have found their star-intelligence to correspond much with what I have previously aligned with. Until now I have been kept at bay from these communications until, no doubt, I was in a better place to recognise how they corresponded. On top of this I have also - very late - been familiarising myself with the Ra Material of the Law of One - again, this works very well with the Gurdjieff material I had been exposed to and they complement each other positively. I am beginning to discern a difference in material from 4th density star-intelligences from 5th/6th density star-intelligences...

Recently, in the past few months, I have been acquainting myself with Richard Leviton's work, his stargate work/writings, as well as similar earth-grid material. All this has been fitting in nicely with the Arcturian work, especially in terms of servicing the earth matrix. In 2008 I feel that I will spend some time visiting some of these grid-nodes and make a participation in the energy lines... I am expecting to take some time off academic work to make some visits - I have just acquired a GPS sat-nav to help me get around!

In short, 2008 will be a year of great change... and times of needed service towards the end of this evolutionary cycle. Time IS speeding up, with a confluence of polarity-energies creating disturbances in the earth changes.

May the New Year bring us all re-vitalising energies and blessings for New Directions, opportunities, and support: to usher in the Light for these accelerating times....

I await 2008 will expectations and acknowledgment of changing times. May we all work towards the Light and feel kinship.

A Science of the Soul

David Wilcock is an intriguing person - despite claiming to be the reincarnation of Edgar Cayce he also writes profusely on the convergence of science & spirutality. According to his home site Divine Cosmos: 'all life on Earth is united in a field of consciousness, which affects our minds in fascinating ways'.

In a recent article/interview David Wilcock - called A Scientific Blueprint for Ascension - David talks about the upcoming energetic ''shift'' — a coming change that involves not only individuals but our planet, our Solar System, and the Galaxy itself, according to David. Further, these changes affect the very nature of our DNA. What this means, the article says, is that our solar system is evolving and the effects of this are being felt both within 'earth changes' and climatic disturbances as well as fluctuations in the planetary consciousness field.

According to Wilcock, the following are some measurable changes in our Solar System which suggest that this evolutionary leap is going to happen soon:

Unprecedented solar activity

The quality of the space between planets is changing

The atmospheres of the planets are changing

Earth's moon is growing an atmosphere

Magnetic fields and brightness of the planets are changing

Uranus and Neptune appear to have had recent pole shifts

Overall volcanic activity has increased 500 percent since 1975

Natural disasters increased 410 percent between 1963 and 1993

The Sun's magnetic field increased by 230 percent since 1901

More than just Earth Changes

The glowing plasma at the leading edge of our Solar System has recently increased 1000 percent

The Earth-Grid & Human Pilgrimmage

In the last post I mentioned that humans can act as 'mobile transducers' transferring energy between earth energy nodes such as the ancient sacred sites, stone circles, megalithic sites, that form the earth-energy-grid. I said that since these networks need maintaining this is one of the 'sciences' behind the human pilgrimage. Now I will explain more...

Many people and much general research believe that such megalithic sites were used for solar cults, religious worship, or similar activities etc, without fully comprehending that each site was built for a specific function: i.e. an energy function. Stonehenge in the UK, for example, had a function to channel energy that was made available according to specific times/events of cosmic phenomena. Thus, the site had to be correctly aligned for these precise energy emissions.

All over the world there are sites that show the function of channeling energy - be they stone circles, single stones (dolmens), sacred groves, hills, shrines, etc - all together they made up an earth-grid to carry and distribute the cosmic energies along the earth . Many Christian churches, for example, are built upon these sites, once considered pagan sites, for the 'old knowledge' once knew of this function. Larger structures, such as cathedrals like Notre-Dame and Chartres, acted as energy-accumulators (like batteries), which is often indicated in their design by the use of spirals or labyrinths in their construction.

The important element in energy storage and transmission is that cosmic energy flows at particular times of the year, and thus the 'old knowledge' made use of this in the original Christian calenders. By this I mean that this knowledge was reflected in the names of the saints to which different churches are dedicated (although much of the system is now misunderstood and mixed around). Each day of the year was attached to a particular saint so that the original purpose was for the entire community to gather at the church for their saint's day - a day that represented the time when the maximum energy was available in that area during the year. Likewise, festivals in specific places in the countryside, along with established pilgrim routes, enabled a line of transmission to be enabled whereby people would act as the channel, or conduit, for passing along the energy, thus maintaining the energy flow within the earth-grid.

This system is still in place, although 'humans-as-facilitators' is now a weakened system of transmission and the functional use of many places has been weakened. However, the earth-grid is still firmly in place and is pulsed regularly with cosmic energies, both according to natural cosmic alignments as well as specific and deliberate 'energy-feeding' from external and intelligent interventions...

The 'Light-Grid' is currently undergoing a harmonic and vibrational upgrade, both to serve as casting off the negativity of the 'Dark-Grid' as well as preparing Earth and humanity for rising vibrations akin to consciousness aligned with fifth-dimensional reality.

What Do Human Beings Do?

I recently came across a great sentence, it read:

'Pigs grunt, dogs bark, penguins waddle, what do human beings do?'

Exactly, I thought.... then I thought a little longer, and a little harder... and realised that 'we' do alot, or rather have the innate potentiality to do a lot. One of these processes that humans do is 'to think' - the power of thought and consciousness. Is this such a great potential, more than a penguin's waddle?

Why... of course. It is a potential for co-creation - for participating within the 'design' for planet Earth. Humans - homo sapiens sapiens - have the capacity to be as bridges between spirit & matter; between creative impulse & solid; between the angelic & elemental. We are like transducers, filters - in short, we are facilitators.

Humans can act as transmitters - energy batteries - directing incoming energy across, into, and through the earth - grounding the energies. Like an 'earth wire' in electrical plugs, humans are able to ground energy from outside of the physical matrix into the light grid that sustains the planetary body. We are the mobile transducers: static energy nodes are the ancient sacred sites, stone circles, megalithic sites, that form the earth-energy-grid, yet these networks need maintaining. Hence the 'human facilitator'; hence the arcane reason behind the human pilgrimage (I will speak more on this soon).

Life, including human life, is a layer of transmuting energy. Within this, the power of human thought and intention can play a great part in the process of energy transference.

Of course, we can also waddle too... and grunt occasionally!

Homo Luminous

Some time back I wrote a post on 'Homo-noeticus' and referred to the interview with John White concerning a future evolution of our species. I am now going to update this 'body' of knowledge and make reference to Homo-Luminous:

Homo luminous
According to the prophecies of the Maya, the Hopi and the Inka, we're at a turning point in human history, a period of great turmoil and upheaval in which a new species of human will give birth to itself. We're going to take a quantum leap into what we are becoming, moving from Homo sapiens to Homo luminous – that is, beings with the ability to perceive the vibration and light that make up the physical world at a much higher level. For the first time, all of humanity will be able to evolve not between generations, but within a generation, which contradicts our beliefs about how evolution works. We'll take a biological quantum leap within our own lifetimes; and the physical, emotional and spiritual traits we acquire will be passed on to our children and our children's children.

If this sounds hard to believe, consider that you create a new copy of your body about every eight months, as your cells replace themselves. By following the four insights and implementing their practices, you can manifest a physical body that's free of the tyranny of the genes you inherited from your parents and the medical maladies they bring you. But even more important, you can unchain yourself from the limiting emotional and spiritual stories you've inherited or bought into over the course of your life.

Thanks to the discoveries of quantum physics, we've come to understand that all matter is densely packed light. But the Laika have known about the luminous nature of reality for millennia – they know that vibration and light can organize themselves into a thousand shapes and forms. First, there is a luminous matrix, and then this blueprint gives birth to life. Vibration and light swirl and condense around the luminous matrix and give birth to a whale, for instance, and then whales can give birth to other whales.

The human body also has a luminous matrix: we're enveloped by a luminous energy field (LEF) that manifests the form and health of the body. The LEF organizes the body in the same way that the energy fields of a magnet arrange iron filings on top of a piece of glass. Just as with the example of the whales, humans can give birth to other humans, but a new kind of human has to come from a new luminous matrix. Over millennia, the Laika learned to access the biological blueprint of light and assist Spirit in the unfolding of creation. They also learned how to heal disease and create extraordinary states of health, as well as to craft and shape their personal destinies, by changing the LEF.

We can think of the LEF as the software that gives instructions to DNA, which is the hardware that manufactures the body. Mastery of the four insights even allowed the Laika to create new life on Earth – to bring forth a new species of butterfly in the Amazon, for example. It allowed them to move gigantic boulders up the sides of mountains, as was required to build the Inka cities in the clouds. The Bible tells us that our faith can move mountains, but we've forgotten that we have the ability to do so. The insights teach us that the first mountain we must move is the one that blocks our perception of our own luminous nature.

This is an extract from 'The Four Insights' by Alberto Villoldo. Villoldo teaches the 'Munay-Ki' which are the 'nine great rites of initiation of the medicine way' that 'heal us and transform our human energy field into that of homo luminous'.

As more and more information comes to us about changes in the earth's energy grid, shifts in electromagnetism around the globe, changes in the schumann resonance, and light activation and vibratory properties of human DNA, it is yet another piece of the puzzle to learn of ancient shamanic teachings that develop the 'luminous energy field' (LEF) of the human.

In times of much change, amid potential 'dark days', there is increasing necessity for the collective mind of transforming individuals to focus upon Light, and the energy fields created from our own thoughts and emotions. Such individual intentions will play an important part in greater Earth consciousness transformation. We may be a little 'dim' at times, yet the power to turn the dimmer switch to a higher brightness rests in our hands, literally.

Mind the Shift - Be the Thought

Information, DNA, and Hypercommunication

I have talked in the past about the vibrational properties of DNA and how it reacts to energy vibrations. In previous posts I made connections with shamanic knowledge (see 'The Cosmic Serpent') and biophysics (see 'The Rainbow and The Worm'), as well as the recent work of the Russian biophysicist and molecular biologist Pjotr Garjajev which states that networked intelligence in the DNA allows for hypercommunication of information amongst all sentient beings.

I wish now to further this topic by reference to some more sites that discuss this, with reference also to connecting this to 'collective intelligence' that may be involved in any potential upcoming shifts in global consciousness.

The site 'The Spiritual Genome' discusses the relation between crop circles and the ground-breaking new discoveries being made by Russian researchers concerning the properties of DNA:

Fascinating new discoveries by Russian molecular biologists have revealed that DNA has a mysterious resonance that has been termed the Phantom-DNA Effect. In addition these Russian researchers have found that DNA reacts to voice activated laser light when it is set at the specific frequency of the DNA itself. Using these methods it is possible not only to change the information patterns in the DNA, but it is also possible to communicate with the DNA....

...It seems that there is a divine intelligence in the DNA that is capable of resonating with the natural frequency of the earth in order to create crop circles. This divine intelligence is what the Hindus refer to as the Inner Self, and there are indications that the increase in crop circle activity in recent decades is set to coincide with the end of the Mayan calendar, at which point this divine intelligence in the DNA will become generally known to the world, thus ushering in a new era in 2012.

The site 'Psychic Children' looks at DNA activation, the planetary grid, Indigo children, and related subjects:

The latest research explains phenomena such as clairvoyance, intuition, spontaneous and remote acts of healing, self healing, affirmation techniques, unusual light-auras around people (namely spiritual masters), mind's influence on weather-patterns and much more. The Russian scientists also found out that our DNA can cause disturbing patterns in the vacuum, thus producing magnetized wormholes! Wormholes are the microscopic equivalents of the so-called Einstein-Rosen bridges in the vicinity of black holes (left by burned-out stars). These are tunnel connections between entirely different areas in the universe through which information can be transmitted outside of space and time. The DNA attracts these bits of information and passes them on to our consciousness.

What we are seeing here is ‘Hyper-communication’, where information is passed inter dimensionally. It is as though the DNA acts as a ‘Stargate’ between this dimension and others. In the book there are several stories of how this information is downloaded via DNA....
This has never occurred before in quite this way and many researchers believe our DNA will become fully functional by late 2012. It is no coincidence that 2012 is the end of the Mayan calendar and the proposed time of ‘Galactic alignment’ and the move from the age of Pisces into the Age of Aquarius. New research shows there is an intimate link between DNA, the Sun and what is going on in our Galaxy.

See also the page on The Heliosphere:

And this means that the Solar System itself is moving into an area where the energy is more highly charged. That higher-charged energy is in turn exciting the plasma and causing more of it to form, so you see more luminosity, more brightness. This energy is then flowing into the Sun, which in turn emits the energy and spreads it out along its equatorial plane, which is called the Ecliptic. This in turn is saturating interplanetary space, which causes the solar emissions to travel more quickly and charge up the energy on the planets.

And this is conscious energy that is changing how the planet works, how it functions, and what kind of life it supports. The harmonics of the DNA spiral itself are altering. That's the real, hidden cause of spontaneous mass evolutions in previous epochs of time. All this is happening all at the same time, and it's all working up to a crescendo where there is going to be a sudden shift.

The essay 'Spirituality and Science: DNA is influneced by words and frequencies' by Grazyna Fosar and Franz Bludorf discusses the work of Pjotr Garjajev with connection to hyper-communication and possible future collective intelligence:

These are tunnel connections between entirely different areas in the universe through which information can be transmitted outside of space and time. The DNA attracts these bits of information and passes them on to our consciousness. This process of hypercommunication is most effective in a state of relaxation. Stress, worries or a hyperactive intellect prevent successful hypercommunication or the information will be totally distorted and useless. In nature, hypercommunication has been successfully applied for millions of years. The organized flow of life in insect states proves this dramatically. Modern man knows it only on a much more subtle level as "intuition". But we, too, can regain full use of it...

...Now that we are fairly stable in our individual consciousness, we can create a new form of group consciousness, namely one, in which we attain access to all information via our DNA without being forced or remotely controlled about what to do with that information. We now know that just as on the internet our DNA can feed its proper data into the network, can call up data from the network and can establish contact with other participants in the network...

...Hypercommunication in the new millennium means something quite different: Researchers think that if humans with full individuality would regain group consciousness...When a great number of people get together very closely, potentials of violence also dissolve. It looks as if here, too, a kind of humanitarian consciousness of all humanity is created.

I would also recommend the site 'Souls of Distortion' which has a free e-book which also discusses the DNA issue of reactivation.

It seems likely that DNA is connected with how consciousness may shift, as well as with earth/planetary grids, resonances (including the Schumann Resonance) and a potential earth collective networked intelligence.

For myself, I can only say that increased moments of meditation will be focused upon an internal listening and connection, with efforts to dis-allow negative interventions from 'white noise' such as negative media propaganda; EM radiation over-exposure (limited use of mobile phone); and bodily toxins (unhealthy food and too much alcohol - the difficult one for a wine lover!).

Warmth and positivity to all......

2012: The Times Ahead

I sat down in the evening and asked for guidance as I placed my fingers upon the keyboard - the following came out, without stops... it was just an experiment, and I make no judgement:

We are in unprecedented times - the times ahead will be one of courage and fortitude, relying on inner knowledge rather than outer instruments; of sensing rather than the shelter of objects. Yet this is not a time of fear, for with preparation and certitude the times ahead can be navigated. How can such certitude be gained? Through oneself, for it is within oneself that the keys to growth and renewal have been planted. It is within the very cellular being of each individual that the lessons have been planted, waiting for the harvest of uncertainty to reap the spiritual corn.

How often does a person sit quietly with themselves and asks the questions that are so rarely asked of oneself except in moments of crisis or uncommon intimacy? This is not to sound patronising - it is to enquire of a person the depth to which they know and are familiar with themselves. Far too often a person places the onus and burden upon others for lack of confidence or for laziness. How often opportunities for personal growth are missed through avoidance in dealing and facing trying moments of decision and action taken from oneself. In the coming years much will be expected from people as they face increased fears and challenges; challenges that present recorded history holds no precedent for. These challenges involve the shifts of energies that are emerging worldwide upon this planet now, and increasingly so in the years to come. Like attennas waiting for the switch from analogue to digital, for the upgrade, for the boost, our spirits - activated within our bodies - are attuning to the new frequencies arriving upon planet Earth.

The reasons for this are numerous, and involve the Great Design for evolutionary movement and growth within a cosmic context. Living Intelligence is greater than and more varied than Homo Sapiens Sapiens, and with humility and grace, the Sapien Intelligence can too participate in this upcoming Intelligence Shift that will encompass both Earthly/nature, organic/biological, solar/cosmic, and galaxial Intelligences. As one moves up a rung on the ladder, so those below may move up also.

Such leaps have been occurring at designated intervals throughout multiversal evolution, according to the designs and framework of each individual universe. These shifts must also coincide with favourable cosmic events - the 'windows of opportunity'. Such a window will soon present itself through cosmic/galactic favourability - however, the shift must also be aligned within an Earthly context too. And this is the responsibility of conscious and knowing Sapiens to rise up to this extraordinary and fantastic opportunity with light, intention, and great energies for change and empowerment. Link Together.

Change comes through conscious amplification of energy-resonance, like a string of bells ringing and vibrating in synchronization. Synchrony and harmony are essential in order for below-energies to better join with the higher-descending energies and for there to be less disruption in this meeting. Friction will of course be apparent in many ways; geological, pathological, socio-economic, and emotional. Preparation is the key here. With inner knowing, alertness, and readyness, the new energies can be better embraced and worked with in order to integrate the denser bodies into differing vibrationary states.

Please, spend some more time with yourself. Sit quietly and probe one's inner state. Ask for guidance and partnership, for in conscious partnership between joining Intelligences will true progress and wisdom be formed. This is not 'new-age' nonsense: it is steps towards greater practicality. The future is no longer the way it was; the way ahead is beyond all conceptions.

Times are accelerating - as people are increasingly becoming aware - and present formulations are proving inadequate for these times. Do not worry that events appear chaotic and tumultuous, for this they are. Chaos is not to be feared - think of it as moving ground, shifting soil. What about everything I hold dear? you may say. Now think: what do you really hold dear? And what are those things you would just prefer not to lose? Can you live without certain assurances? Possessions? Securities? There is nothing that will be taken from you that you cannot live without. And in those cases where life is taken away, it is because it serves a purpose as the spirit will undergo a needed 'shift' through this seemingly premature shedding of the skin: consider as the caterpillar to the butterfly rather than a body into the ground. Where there is death, there is continued life - nothing is ended.

Existence is both a playground of experiences as well as a classroom for learning and growth. As in all school there is homework too: in the case of Earth in the 21st century - great work and maturity is needed in order to reach towards Home. The real 'Home-Work thus lies in preparation for the times ahead. We all journey together. Be not separate in mind nor spirit for this is not so. See with your Heart and not your eyes.

Let it come down

Over two years ago I wrote this poem... looking back at it now I see its resonance with the present topic of 'earth changes':

An early dawn rises after a dark night,
just as our own personal djinns are purged
through effort into a new cleansed state.

So too will the world soul be plunged into its
own infernal chaos before light is drawn from
its well of deep reserves and a new epoch
is created from the ashes of a long history of
struggle and strife. Everything will know itself
in order to pass beyond its own weakness.

In the end it is a great plan, a great love.
A wonderful human, divine purpose.
Let it come down.


This morning my copy of The Mystery of 2012: Predictions, Prophecies and Possibilities arrived - looks like a great read.....

Earth Changes

We are indeed living in 'interesting times' as the Chinese curse-blessing denotes. The subject of earth changes will be the subject in coming years... as cosmic influences align with spiritual and physical changes, bringing effects upon a range of behaviour and emotions. The language of mind we adopt in these years will affect greatly the design of reality we experience. I wanted to pass on some words of '2012 philosophy' from a thinker named Simon Hunt taken from an article titled 'Hopi Elders Say Earth Changes Are Upon Us'. I especially found No.7 of interest - the notion of accelerating time and the schumann resonance, something to which I have referred to previously - a shortened online version can be found here:

2012 Unlimited philosophy

1. Humanity and Planet Earth are currently going through a huge change shift in consciousness and reality perception.

2. The Mayan civilization of Central America was and is the most advanced in relation to time-science knowledge. Their main calendar is the most accurate on the planet. It has never erred. They actually have 22 calendars in total, covering the many timing cycles in the Universe and Solar System. Some of these calendars are yet to be revealed.

3. The Mayan fifth world finished in 1987. The sixth world starts in 2012.
So we are currently "between worlds". This time is called the "Apocalypse" or revealing. This means the real truth will be revealed. It is also the time for us to work through "our stuff" individually and collectively.

4. The Mayan sixth world is actually blank. This means it is up to us, as
co-creators, to start creating the new world and civilization we want now.

5. The Mayans also say that by 2012- we will have gone beyond technology, as we know it. We will have gone beyond time and money. We will have entered the fifth dimension after passing through the fourth dimension Planet Earth and the Solar System will come into galactic synchronization with the rest of the Universe. Our DNA will be "upgraded" (or reprogrammed) from the centre of our galaxy. (Hunab Ku) "Everbody on this planet is mutating. Some are more conscious of it than others. But everyone is doing it" -

6. In 2012 the plane of our Solar System will line up exactly with the plane of our Galaxy, the Milky Way. This cycle has taken 26,000 years to complete. Virgil Armstrong also says that two other galaxies will line up with ours at the same time. A cosmic event!

7. Time is actually speeding up (or collapsing). For thousands of years the Schumann Resonance or pulse (heartbeat) of Earth has been 7.83 cycles per second, The military have used this as a very reliable reference. However, since 1980 this resonance has been slowly rising. It is now over 12 cycles per second! This mean there is the equivalent of less than 16 hours per day instead of the old 24 hours. Another interpretation is, we, or rather Consciousness have been down this same road seven times before over the last 16 billion years. Each of these cycles of Creation runs 20 times faster than the last one. The same amount of Creation is paced 20 times tighter. This is why time seems to be going so fast. It is not "time" but Creation itself that is accelerating.

8. During the Apocalypse or the time "between worlds" many people will be going through many personal changes. The changes will be many and varied. It is all part of what we came here to learn or experience. Examples of change could be- relationships coming to an end, change of residence or location, change of job or work, shift in attitude or thinking etc.

9. Remember, in any given moment we are making small and large decisions. Each decision is based on LOVE or FEAR. Choose love, follow your intuition, not intellect and follow your passion or "burning inner desire." Go with the flow.

10. Thought forms are very important and affect our everyday life. We create our reality with thought forms. If we think negative thoughts of others this is what we attract. If we think positive thoughts, we will attract positive people and events.
So be aware of your thoughts and eliminate the unnecessary negative or judgmental ones.

11. Be aware that most of the media is controlled by just a few. Use discernment! Look for the hidden agendas. Why is this information being presented to you? What is "their" real agenda? Is it a case of problem reaction solution? Do "they" create a problem so that "we" react and ask for a fix, then "they" offer their solution? The "solution is what "they" really wanted in the first place.

12. Remember , almost nothing happens by accident. Almost all "events" are planned by some agency or other. Despite this, it is a very exciting time to be alive!

Of similar interest is this site with links on earth changes and ecology - although some links are dated.

There's No Truth in the Media

It's not often you see someone on TV telling you to switch off, because everything you learn from the 'Tube' is rubbish. This may be an act, yet its a wonderful clip to watch on seeing someone rant 'n' rave about the trouble we're in from the media...

Top 10 forecasts for 2008 and beyond

Time for more predictions - or forecasts - this time from the band of scholarly folks over at The Futurist. Each year since 1985, the editors of The Futurist have selected thought-provoking ideas to appear in their magazine.

For 2008 report they claim that 'The earth is on the verge of a significant extinction event--a biodiversity collapse; the world will have a billion millionaires by 2025; water will be in the twenty-first century what oil was in the twentieth century; and the threat of another cold war with China, Russia, or both could replace terrorism as the chief foreign-policy concern of the United States.'

These are among the top 10 forecasts fom The Futurist magazine's Outlook 2008 report:

1. The world will have a billion millionaires by 2025.

2. Fashion will go wired as technologies and tastes converge to revolutionize the textile industry.

3. The threat of another cold war with China, Russia, or both could replace terrorism as the chief foreign-policy concern of the United States.

4. Counterfeiting of currency will proliferate, driving the move toward a cashless society.

5. The earth is on the verge of a significant extinction event.

6. Water will be in the twenty-first century what oil was in the twentieth century.

7. World population by 2050 may grow larger than previously expected, due in part to healthier, longer-living people.

8. The number of Africans imperiled by floods will grow 70-fold by 2080.

9. Rising prices for natural resources could lead to a full-scale rush to develop the Arctic.

10. More decisions will be made by nonhuman entities.

'In The Image of the Gods' - A Modern Parable

'At the birth of civilisation amidst the ancient rise of the dynasties there emerged a powerful race of beings who superseded all known life in their high intelligence and wisdom. They believed that their inheritance belonged to the stars and that they themselves were indeed a genetic offspring from deliberate breeding with alien intelligences that had arrived from the cosmos to visit their planet Earth in an earlier age : they considered themselves to be in the 'image of their gods'. To this order they built many domains of worship, and erected many centres of astrological significance to study the heavens, the knowledge of the operation of such centres being strictly limited to the higher brethren.

As a further act of worship and thanks to their creators of life, this elite passed a decree where at the ending of every month a human sacrifice would be made as a show of their continuing devotion, and in the hope that their higher ancestors would one day return to view their work. These sacrifices were taken from the regular population of humanoids, as it was the elite wise that were required for the civilisation's constant progress. The choices as to who would be sacrificed were made at random. After a period of time however, the common populace began to grow disgruntled at this state of affairs and became restless at their unvoiced position below the ruling authority. This unease quickly grew and developed into a general state of unrest that was seen by the elite as both a danger to their own positions and to the equilibrium of their society's fabric. They became anxious that a remedy be quickly and effectively found. This question as to how to solve this unrest was sent out to all the great and wise that composed the elite, and to all the most respected and knowledgeable beings.

Finally, after much raised eyebrows, there stepped forward the figure of Jesuem Moham Rosencrantz who was regarded my most to be a highly intelligent individual and a gifted practitioner of magic. He declared that he had looked into this problem deeply and his profound insight and practical knowledge had come up with the ideal solution. This consisted of hypnotising the common people into believing that they were immortal, and if they sacrificed themselves to the gods then their spirit or 'soul' as Jesuem called it ( so as to give it a mystical regal nomenclature ) would ascend to the stars to be beside the throne of their gods and they would continue to exist within eternal peace. Jesuem proposed that this hypnotic trance would lead everyone to believe that the ruling elite were thoughtful and considerate beings who strived for the mutual good of all classes of beings. To add further onto this the populace would be hypnotised into also believing that their present position was a worthy and satisfactory one and that there was no need to strive for any knowledge of awareness of one's self since there would be no need for this as their sole purpose was to live for the community and reach heaven in eternity. This proposal of Jesuem Moham Rosencrantz was welcomed with mighty approval by all the other elite beings, and was soon put into action.

The general humanoid was thus turned into a walking automation, believing in their mundane life and looking towards death as a gateway into the realms of the holy. And so this ancient civilisation remained intact and continued to prosper for many generations, producing much intelligent thought and practises that are sadly lost to the world of today ; known only to the wise few as secret knowledge. Sadly, the only remnants that have remained from this early order is their magic that has been passed through the genetic gene pools for thousands of years. The power of this initial trance state created by Jesuem was so intense that it has survived until this present day in the consciousness of virtually every human. Most people are still living within a diseased sleep, unaware of their state and their lack of knowledge. They still carry with them the idea that once dead their eternal 'soul' will ascend to the land of the gods, and so while alive they maintain this slaved duty to the social order.

It is of interest here to also note that this notion of ascending to the stars has been expanded and developed upon through the ages to incorporate its opposite - namely that if a common man throws his life against the grain of social order or strives to upset the morals of the 'elders', then that being will find their 'soul' being cast eternally into a sphere labelled as 'damnation' which is said to be torturous and an existence of constant pain. Such half-weaved tales have planted themselves into the framework of many present civilisations and the human psyche is now a torn and damaged instrument, affected by bad programming and mental shocks. There will never be a cure for this disintegration until the humanoids begin to become aware of this problem themselves.'

2012 - Changing Times

It is likely that the subject of 2012 will become one of the hottest subjects on the Net in the years to come. A suitable subject for the World Wide Mind (WWM) - the emerging noosphere, as de Chardin would call it. Yet before I say another thing, I want to quote this:

‘The fatal metaphor of progress, which means leaving things behind us, has utterly obscured the real idea of growth, which means leaving things inside us’ – G.K. Chesterton

Growth, moving forward, without nurturing the very seed of experience, is a opportunity wasted.

Much will be said on the spiritual ramifications and signifiers of 2012. Yet firstly I'd like to point towards some material which clearly lays out some of the physical changes of implications impacting our planet, our socio-culture over the coming years. And to begin this I would suggest reading James H. Kunstler's 'The Long Emergency: Surviving the Converging Catastrophes of the 21st Century' Although US-centric in its approach it is a lucid exploration and explication of our potentially dire socio-cultural-political situation, especially in terms of dwindling energy resources and the collapse of social systems that this will entail. Such events could add much to the heady mix of impacts occurring around 2012.

Secondly, I would also recommend Lawrence Joseph's 'Apocalypse 2012: An Optimist Investigates the End of Civilization' - a wryly written adventure around Earth 'shifts' that may converge towards a 2012 tipping-point. And written with lovely humour and ease.

And one to look out for: a collection of essays on 2012 written by some of today's finer thinkers including Ervin Laszlo; Peter Russell; Barbara Marx Hubbard; Greg Braden; Daniel Pinchbeck; and more. The book is titled 'The Mystery of 2012: Predictions, Prophecies and Possibilities' and is due out this month. Although I have not yet read this book, I feel it will add some sober thoughts upon the subject, rather than hazy ones.

The physical disruptions should not be overlooked by too much gazing into the abstract. Similarly, the doomsayers should not over-ride the courage and resilience of the human spirit in times of need and community. Preparation, information, and awareness are tools for the upcoming years. So is a high-degree of level-headedness!

Let us share suggestions and words of encouragement.

In the opening words of Chesterton - let us move on by gaining something inside of us.

And don't forget to smile at people...

Russian Mind-Control Research

It seems that more and more information is coming out in mainstream news about the Russian research into 'psychotronic weapons' and modern day uses of mind-manipulation. It makes one wonder whether authorities are becoming more blase and complacent about such strategies, especially in the context of terrorist propaganda. In this recent article from Wired - 'The Weird Russian Mind-Control Research Behind a DHS Contract' - the writer discusses how the work of infamous Russian researcher Igor Smirnov, who worked on the science of mind control, is now being integrated into US Home Security:

The slow migration of Smirnov's technology to the United States began in 1991, at a KGB-sponsored conference in Moscow intended to market once-secret Soviet technology to the world. Smirnov's claims of mind control piqued the interest of Chris and Janet Morris -- former science-fiction writers turned Pentagon consultants who are now widely credited as founders of the Pentagon's "non-lethal" weapons 1993 Smirnov rose to brief fame in the United States when the FBI consulted with him in hope of ending the standoff in Waco with cult leader David Koresh. Smirnov proposed blasting scrambled sound -- the pig squeals again -- over loudspeakers to persuade Koresh to surrender...

...But the U.S. war on terror and the millions of dollars set aside for homeland security research is offering Smirnov a chance at posthumous respectability in the West.

Smirnov's technology reappeared on the U.S. government's radar screen through Northam Psychotechnologies, a Canadian company that serves as North American distributor for the Psychotechnology Research Institute. About three years ago, Northam Psychotechnologies began seeking out U.S. partners to help it crack the DHS market. For companies claiming innovative technologies, the past few years have provided bountiful opportunities. In fiscal year 2007, DHS allocated $973 million for science and technology and recently announced Project Hostile Intent, which is designed to develop technologies to detect people with malicious intentions.

A must-read.

Lunar Ark

It seems that more and more scientists and specialists are taking seriously the possibility of future 'existential risks' - otherwise referred to as catastrophic events. A recent report suggested the building of a 'lunar ark' - a Noah's Ark - on the moon to preserve humanity's records. For those familiar with Isaac Asimov's 'Foundation Series' will know this is eerily similar to the plot of 'Foundation and Earth' when Earth became radioactive after nuclear war. Anyway.... the report from National Geographic - 'Lunar Ark' Proposed in Case of Deadly Impact on Earth - states that:

The moon should be developed as a sanctuary for civilization in case of a cataclysmic cosmic impact, according to an international team of experts (NASA already has blueprints to create a permanent lunar outpost by the 2020s)

But that plan should be expanded to include a way to preserve humanity's learning, culture, and technology if Earth is hit by a doomsday asteroid or comet, said Jim Burke of International Space University (ISU) in France.

Burke, once a project manager on some of the earliest American lunar landings, now heads an ISU study on surviving a collision with a near-Earth object. An impact of the size that wiped out the dinosaurs hasn't happened since long before the rise of humans, he pointed out.

Yet scientists' expanding knowledge of asteroids and craters left throughout the solar system has created a consensus that Earth remains vulnerable to a civilization-crushing collision. This calls for the creation of a space age Noah's ark, Burke said...A Lunar Ark

Thanks to Subtopia for the heads-up on this.

There is so much activity going on, yet so difficult to join all the dots together... lunar arks; underground bases; star-wars missile shields; increasing sun flares and galactic centre pulses...

Against the Chip

I once gave a lecture on 'modernity' to a class of 80 undergraduates - I discussed eugenics and modern warfare as an existing 'enlightenment paradigm', based much on the book 'Al Qaeda and What It Means to Be Modern' by John Gray - then I casually mentioned an aside on the alleged role of IBM within the technologised war-machine of the Third-Reich, quoting Edwin Black's 'IBM and the Holocaust'.

Now - an update - it seems that IBM are behind Verichip's human chipping technology: from the punch-cards of the Second World War to bio-chipping of the 21st-Century. Now this is a much-discussed subject with grave implications for human liberty if 'chipping' ever came socialised, or implemented under protocols of national security.

There is also a new video that connects IBM with Verichip - its worth watching and it is called - 'IBM, Verichip, and the Fourth Reich'

Recently, it was reported that chips implanted into animals (original function of the bio-chipping) has been found to lead to tumors: read 'Chip implants linked to animal tumors'

Now: how would global (in)security; climate change; new world war; electromagnetic radiations; HAARP; Tesla technology; mobile-phone masts; bio-chipping all be connected...?

No idea....?!

How can humans ride 'The Shift' in consciousness-vibration increase if we're turned-off...

As Timothy Leary famously said - we must first 'Turn On'; then 'Tune In'; then...

Approach to Reality - A Whole New Design

'There seems to be a framework -a structure...a whole new design for life and inner development...moving into manifestation immediately ahead of us in time...filtering already through an intermediary strata to specially selected points. Every detail pre-planned; originating from above to below... not in linear time at all... thus superseding our planetary laws of cause and effect. And absolutely nothing can stop it... its already there, out of range of our vision, but as real and solid as life itself. How it will manifest I can only surmise...

...A new force, or influence, is reaching us - coded to produce precise results that will supersede the old modes of development - almost a forced process which will have effects unique in world history as we know it...

...A stepping-up of transformative force must cause resistance...and in this respect, the animal kingdom and all natural life will fare much better than humanity - having followed its own instinctive laws without deviation... influx of beings of a higher development than man, born into human bodies for preordained reasons - one of which perhaps is to 'burn up' or transmute at a vastly higher rate the 'effects' created by the mass of men, which obstruct their own progression towards their true destiny.'

I was aware of other, cosmical intelligences, far more evolved than my own. These Beings should not be confused with spacemen, or Supermen - they have evolved beyond all planetary form; and I was merely one pupil amongst many, all undergoing some manner of quickening and applied stimulus. Mankind is a cradle, or chrysalis, in which such potential exists as a possibility, or in an embryonic latency.

In this state I perceived a vast act of direct intervention in the life of mankind, like a realignment with the source of all manifestation, which necessitated the prior removal of an obstruction to its correct development. This occurrence coincided with the release of a fresh inflow of magnetic influences, also a stepping-up of vibrationary pressure, like entering a more powerful force-field, or submission to a forced process of growth - designed to produce an evolutionary 'leap'. But it all happened in the dimension of the higher Self, and has not yet externalised into our world of linear time, though its foreshadowings are already apparent.

Pravda on 'psychotronic weapons'

An intriguing little article has appeared on the English edition of Pravda Online titled 'Russians have psychotronic weapon to zombie people'which talks about how the Russians are continuing in this type of research, with references to other nations also:

Boris Ratnikov says that Russia has been working on the psychotronic impact upon humans since the 1920s. Until the mid-1980s secret centers for investigation of psychic impact upon humans were working in large cities of the country under the KGB’s patronage. Thousands of brilliant researchers were working on the problem in the twenty secret centers. After the break-up of the USSR the centers were closed and the researchers either left abroad or currently work in various parts of Russia.

Now that new technologies and the Internet are widely spreading people must realize that the menace of psychic impact upon humans is really immense. At the same time, the official science still insists that psychotronic is mere charlatanry. Boris Ratnikov is sure however that in less than ten years psychotronic weapons will grow more dangerous than nuclear and atomic weapons.

Although nothing new, its worth a quick dip...

Ahriman in the 21st Century

I have recently come across references to a 'figure' known as 'Ahriman' - especially since I am currently reading some Rudolf Steiner. Steiner himself published detailed studies on Ahriman, whom Steiner said was a spiritual entity associated with materialism. Ahriman fulfills the role of influencing and undermining events which occur in contemporary society (see Steiner's 'Ahriman')

An online essay also has some provoking details about Ahriman: The Advent of Ahriman: An Essay on the Deep Forces behind the World-Crisis (Posted May 1997 by Robert S. Mason; Last revised August 18, 2007.)discusses Ahriman's influence on the western world in depth. I say the 'western world' especially since Ahriman's influence deals with promoting materialism and narrow-mindedness in political and economic life. Although there is much in the article which I do not personally agree with, I still feel it is significant in that it raises an alternative view to many of the ills spreading in present socio-cultural life. I will quote from the article at length, which begins with the following outline:

In the social-cultural sphere, Ahriman's influence is apparent everywhere, especially strong and growing stronger throughout the Twentieth Century. Chief among the Ahrimanic trends are:

* Antagonistic nationalism based on ethnicity. (Moderate folk-nationalism was a progressive principle in the past, but ethnic nationalism is retrogressive and destructive today.)
* Dogmatic party politics, engendering hatred and bitterness arising from the refusal to see other, equally valid (or invalid) points of view
* The subjugation of cultural life (e.g. medicine, education, research, criminal jurisprudence) to political and economic power
* The mechanization of the political state, bound by rigid laws everywhere, with little place for free human initiative
* In everyday life: Philistinism, tedium, and alienation, lack of interest in one's work, even in intellectual work (Ahriman wants knowledge to be devoid of warm human interest and connection, to be stored in libraries and not to live in human souls.)
* In medicine: materialistic, mechanistic (and atrocious) experimentalism and treatment, without understanding of the living human individual (The related practice of embalming corpses tends to bind the human entity to earth; this is an Ahrimanic reflection of ancient Egyptian mummification.)
* In social science: blind acceptance of statistics, and the belief that the satisfaction of economic needs by itself will secure human welfare
* In economics: the subjugation of all living and human interests to the inhuman, impersonal mechanism of profit-seeking, to the "artificial person" of the corporation (In the USA this has reached such a state that the humanizing influence of the labor movement is being obliterated, and the exigencies of "making a living", along with other destructive Ahrimanic trends, are destroying the human family -- this in the so-called "richest country in the world". (A perspicacious American folk-wisdom has coined the phrase "the Almighty Dollar".) The Ahrimanic "Mammon" is archetypally the god of "filthy lucre" and of the power of money over life, as well as of all low and dark forces; his hosts also attack the human body and soul to corrupt and destroy them.)
* In the Christian religion: narrow, simplistic interpretation of the Gospels, without appreciation for the occult wisdom needed for an approach to the deep mysteries of the Christ Being
* In literature: books inspired directly by Ahriman, works of great intelligence that further Ahriman's goals (e.g. some parts of Nietzsche's Antichrist and Ecce Homo)
* In technics: very refined developments, but directed only at satisfying animal needs, promoting human immersion in the sense-world to the exclusion of the supersensible
* In world-view: Men as animals, animals (and all living things) as mechanisms, the non-existence of soul and spirit, and the non-existence of moral reality: amoralism.

Interestingly, the article later goes on to say that:

Steiner says that the Ahrimanic incarnation will happen the West in the Third Millennium. In his nomenclature "West" means primarily Britain and English-speaking America. There is ample reason to suspect that the destined place for this event is (North) America, for the effect of the American natural environment on the human body and soul especially favors Ahrimanic tendencies. According to Steiner's insights, each of the various regions of the earth has its unique effect upon the human organism. In America the Ahrimanic influence is strong, rising from the center of the earth, carried by electromagnetism...

Later still I find it useful to see that there is a constructive side to Ahriman's influence:

...But Ahriman's incarnation need not be an evil event, as he wishes it to be. This incarnation is necessary in human and earthly evolution, and it can be turned toward the good, if mankind meets it in the right way: On the mundane level, we can remedy Ahrimanic tedium in the work-life and the intellectual life, by filling them with warm, Luciferic enthusiasm, by finding what is interesting in them, by getting ourselves interested in objective, impersonal facts and processes. On the psychological level, we can remedy Luciferic subjectivity and fiery emotionalism by observing ourselves coolly, as we would an external natural process...

...The fundamental principle in this, the Consciousness Soul Epoch, is the emergence in the Man of conscious, individualized, independent thinking.

Significant then is the implication that these times can also be turned towards stimulating our own psychic growth and evolution towards higher conscious awareness. In times of turbulence then, there are opportunities for dynamic and accelerated growth. This, surely, is the direction of our focus and efforts?

Nibiru and Anunnaki

There is plenty of material available on the Nibiru and Anunnaki connection, such as the book We Are the Nibiruans: Return of the 12th Planet by Jelaila Starr. This book, and related material, such as by Zecharia Sitchin, are interesting for 'alternative history' readings of the possible origins of humankind. For a highly recommended sci-fi reading on this theme I would suggest Doris Lessings 'Shikasta' (although not a light read).

A good 5 minute video overview is available from this video below, courtesy of 'Grey':

We have the Heart

Here for the party, here for the push,
here for the leap, here for the leaving.

Putting the players into precise position,
arranging, re-arranging the strategic battle lines.

Increasing paranoia, rising climatic fear,
they plan to infect us, inject us, poison the Piper’s heart.

Yet we’ve been in on the game for a long time,
from the very beginnings of our serpent past.

They have the scheming, we have the subtlety,
they have slyness, we have the Heart…

Are We Real?

Are We Real? This is the central question in the Simulation Hypothesis - this is Nick Bostrom's hypothesis that we are living in a computer simulated universe similar to how artificial life operates within a computer. Now, this does kind of stamps all over notions of 'the human spirit' - yet in a strange way it still allows for ideas of 'spiritual' and 'conscious evolution' growth. Perhaps this represents the ultimate in Free Will - a simulation experiment that self-evolves into Intelligence. Whilst there is a deep part of my inner self that cannot accept the Simulation Hypothesis, I still enjoy the wrangles it produces, and like to dip my toes into these debates.

So below are extracts from YouTube that show, in total, a one hour program of the “What We Still Don’t Know” series from the UK’s Channel Four. In this one - Are We Real? - astronomer Martin Rees explains Nick Bostrom’s Simulation Hypothesis with interviews with cosmologists and philosophers. Let your simulation enjoy!

Thinking Blogging, Thinking Future

And it is a welcome return to the 'grid' - albeit in a ambiguous way. Good to both be away from Internet and mobile phones for a while, and back into natural 'human' social networking. Yet necessary - for me - to return into information immersion so that I keep aware of spiraling events. And lovely to return to a 'Thinking Blogger' nomination from my friend A.V. over at Surfing the Tao - thanks A.V.!

This helped to remind me that I began this blog over 4 years ago - in March 2003 when blogging was a relatively new phenomenon - and when Blogger only provided the very basics for free... I began by wishing to talk about 'ideas of our conscious evolution' - with discussions based mainly around spiritual matters, delving into DNA vibrations, shamanism, transcendentalism, etc - since then I have shifted 'careers' into a sociological direction and now have interests in emerging technologies, military technologies, electromagnetism, mind control, alternative history, and non-terrestrial Intelligences. What a transformation it has been!

The 'learning curve' just never stops. And for my part, I shall now nominate 5 Thinking Bloggers of my own, in no particular order (or perhaps alphabetical!). May the meme continue...

1. Accelerating Future - Michael Anissimov has a great blog on transhumanism and emerging technologies which always produces well-written, informed, and highly lucid accounts - both supportive and critical - that keeps the reader up-to-date on the latest news and debates. Great posts here.

2. Open the Future - Jamais Cascio was one of the co-founders of the ground-breaking site Worldchanging, which was one of the first blogsites to really utilise the blogosphere for collective thinking and action. He has since moved on to futurist matters and as a freelance futurist consultant offers some wonderful insights into our rapidly emerging future possibilities.

3. Sentient Developments - another great transhumanist blog from writer/thinker/speaker George Dvorsky. Again, this blog keeps the reader up-to-date with the very latest debates in this tech-humanist realm.

4. Spy Blog - subtitled as 'Watching Them, Watching Us' this great informative blogsite does a terrific job in keeping people informed about state surveillance and the latest ironies in this devious arena. Lots of good news snippets here that are timely and right on the ball.

5. Subtopia - Bryan Finoki's site has always been an inspirational site to follow. Finoki, who self-confesses to be 'just obsessed with architecture', tracks the world of military urbanism - an emerging world of borders, barricades, underground facilities, urban hideaways, and architectures of constraint and restriction. Always full of thought-provoking pictures. Thanks Bryan!

So thats my 5 nominations done. Should you choose to participate in this meme, please make sure you pass this list of rules to the blogs you are tagging.
  1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to five blogs that make you think.

  2. Link to this post [the Thinking Blogger] so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme.

  3. Optional: Proudly display the Thinking Blogger Award with a link to the post that you wrote (available in silver or gold version).

It only leaves me to say - the future is always worth living for. Out of all the moments/epochs in our recorded history I have to say that I am very glad to be a witness in this one as for me it will turn out to be the most significant: there is a great transformation underway, and all history has been leading up to this point. Let Us Be Witness - With Heart.

Electromagnetic Warfare

This History Channel documentary has been around for a while, yet I thought I should at least make a link to it as its still worth 45 minutes of a viewer's time... or I could be wrong? Enjoy, yet do not let these issues detract from the greater weapon we have inside of us all...

The Latest Musings from the Posthuman World

It seems like alot is being said at this year's TransVision 2007 conference - the leading annual get-together for posthumanist thinkers. For example:

Marvin Minsky suggested that 'we' could solve any population problem by uploading the minds of 10 billion people and running them on a computer that occupies a few cubic meters and costs only a few hundred dollars to run. Sounds like a familiar, ongoing argument.

Then there is the avatar and transhumanist guru Ray Kurzweil who again claimed that longevity trends are accelerating so fast that the life expectancy will increase more than one year for each year that passes in about 15 years. In other words, if you can hang on another 15 years, your life expectancy could be indefinitely long. He projects that by 2030, AI will be ubiquitous, and most humans will be physically melded to information and other technologies.

This online article is a good brief overview of some speakers - 'Would you give up your immortality to ensure the success of a posthuman world?'

Again, so much emphasis upon re-designing the body of the human, and virtually little or no conception of the evolutionary growth of Spirit and the nervous system... typical of the scientific materialistic, atomistic mindset...

Future Hideaway?

Another issue that keeps me watchful is the continual covert development (especially on/under US soil) of deep underground/mountain bases... what is the agenda behind this?

Much has been said on this issue, whether its on Area 51 or Cheyenne Mountain and NORAD bases, in relation to alien activity. Whilst this is something that can only be speculated, there is also a more pragmatic agenda here: future earth catastrophe.

It is reasonable to suggest that major government powers have considered emergency procedures in the light of natural climate catastrophe or human-induced destruction - especially as we now live in such high-risk times. Indeed, even the UK astronomer Royal - Sir Martin Rees - gave out a 50-50 chance of the human race surviving into the next century - see Our Final Century: Will the Human Race Survive the Twenty-first Century?

Given the future of such stark odds, a Plan B may well include powerful elites going 'underground' within self-sustainable cities for a long period of time until the surface is once again habitable...

An article I came across from 1991 which appeared in Time magazine called 'Civil Defense Doomsday Hideaway' is noteworthy on this account:

But buried deep inside a Virginia mountain, a vast, top-secret installation -- one of the great artifacts of the cold war -- remains at the ready. Known as Mount Weather, it is a Strangelovian relic of yesteryear intended to shelter the President and other top U.S. officials in case of nuclear war. The 33-year-old facility is manned by a second generation of doomsday planners, men and women who are reassessing their mission and that of the massive bunker they have maintained through more than three decades of nuclear threat.

Designed to survive the unthinkable and completed in 1958, the year after the Soviets launched the Sputnik satellite, Mount Weather stands as a monument to a potential nightmare. Few in the U.S. government will speak of it, though it is assumed that all along the Soviets have known both its precise location and its mission; defense experts take it as a given that the site is on the Kremlin's targeting maps. Yet Mount Weather remains an integral part of the U.S.'s "Continuity of Government" plan, under which senior officials are to be whisked away in case of an imminent nuclear strike so that they can set up a kind of Administration-in-exile, directing every order of business from retaliation to recovery.

Mount Weather is operated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which for years has fended off inquiries about the installation with a firm "no comment." Jokes Bob Blair, a FEMA spokesman: "I'll be glad to tell you all about it, but I'd have to kill you afterward." Officially, the Mount Weather bunker does not exist; it is not mentioned in FEMA's published budget. "Even I don't know much about it, and I'm head of FEMA's congressional affairs," says David Cole. "A lot of it is in the black ((secret)) program."

Yet this is - literally - only the tip of the iceberg!

Let the unaware ones plan for the soil - and lets allow the Hearts to prepare for the Stars...

A Future of Eco-Terrorism?

Here is a statement made in 1997 by Dr. William Cohen, then Secretary of Defense:
"Others [terrorists] are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves… So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations…It's real, and that's the reason why we have to intensify our [counterterrorism] efforts."
[Secretary of Defense William Cohen at an April 1997 counterterrorism conference sponsored by former Senator Sam Nunn. Quoted from DoD News Briefing, Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen, Q&A at the Conference on Terrorism, Weapons of Mass Destruction, and U.S. Strategy, University of Georgia, Athens, Apr. 28, 1997.].

In the past I have talked on the 'future human' in terms of the homo gestalt or homo noeticus which I feel are more spiritually aware understandings of how the human species may evolve into a next stage, in terms of awareness, synergy, collective consciousness, and higher vibrational nervous systems.

Now, from the Tech-pack comes a future model that is more in keeping with the Technological Singularity model - in this recent article by tech-pioneer Ray Kurzweil titled 'HUMAN BODY VERSION 2.0' he writes that:

In the coming decades, a radical upgrading of our body's physical and mental systems, already underway, will use nanobots to augment and ultimately replace our organs. We already know how to prevent most degenerative disease through nutrition and supplementation; this will be a bridge to the emerging biotechnology revolution, which in turn will be a bridge to the nanotechnology revolution. By 2030, reverse-engineering of the human brain will have been completed and nonbiological intelligence will merge with our biological brains.

Sex has already been largely separated from its biological function. For the most part, we engage in sexual activity for intimate communication and sensual pleasure, not reproduction. Conversely, we have multiple methodologies for creating babies without physical sex, albeit most reproduction still does derive from the sex act. Although not condoned by all sectors of society, this disentanglement of sex from its biological function has been readily, even eagerly, adopted by the mainstream.

So why don’t we provide the same extrication of purpose from biology for another activity that also provides both social intimacy and sensual pleasure, namely eating? We have crude ways of doing this today. Starch blockers, such as Bayer’s Precose, partially prevent absorption of complex carbohydrates; fat blockers, such as Chitosan, bind to fat molecules, causing them to pass through the digestive tract; and sugar substitutes, such as Sucralose and Stevia, provide sweetness without calories. There are limitations and problems with each of these contemporary technologies, but a more effective generation of drugs is being developed that will block excess caloric absorption on the cellular level.

Let us consider, however, a more fundamental reengineering of the digestive process to disconnect the sensual aspects of eating from its original biological purpose: to provide nutrients into the bloodstream that are then delivered to each of our trillions of cells. These nutrients include caloric (energy-bearing) substances such as glucose (from carbohydrates), proteins, fats, and a myriad of trace molecules, such as vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals, that provide building blocks and facilitating enzymes for diverse metabolic processes.

Kurzweil, as always, is a charismatic and persuasive writer, and even if you feel that his arguments are far too materialistic (as I do), they are nonetheless well worth the read..

Electromagnetism and the Environment

The uses of electromagnetic low frequency (ELF) waves are still a concern and interest to me. And now that the HAARP project has been officially completed by BAE systems (see press release - also here)this may be more of a concern - and especially so for the global environment.

In 2000 a remarkable book was published - with no fanfare. It was written by Rosalie Bertell (President of the International Institute of Concern for Public Health (IICPH), and Editor in Chief of International Perspectives in Public Health) - the book was called 'Planet Earth: The Latest Weapon of War: The Newest Weapon of War' which examines in detail the military experiments with EM (HAARP), ionosphere, and other radiative pulse technologies, including weather modification, and how these might have been linked with catastrophic changes in global environmental phenomena:

She exposes how the military have, for decades, been secretly conducting experiments, including high-level nuclear explosions, which may disrupt the vital layers of the atmosphere which protect us from the sun's lethal radiation. She says these experiments are often conducted without even discussing with non-military experts the hazards of damaging these life-preserving earth-veils. And she believes that such experiments may already have accelerated global warming and contributed to earthquakes and freak weather conditions.

For an excellent review of the book, see this one written by Anne Baring (review No 1). This book somehow disappeared quietly and quickly from circulation, and can now only be found in a few 2nd hand places (generally as ex-library cast outs). However, it is worth securing a copy...

Of similar material, there is the work of Thomas Bearden - according to Wikipedia:

Tom Bearden has unconventional views on other subjects, some of which could be regarded as conspiracy theories. He believes that Russia developed a weapon in the 1960s which uses "time-polarized EM waves" to disrupt the normal flow of time, and used this in Afghanistan in the 1980s. Bearden has also claimed that Russia used various other technologies in the 1980s to cause the destruction of the Challenger space shuttle and induce "several large earthquakes".

Bearden has written extensively on EM warfare and weaponry, and as yet I am undecided about his credibility, although his material is worth looking at in terms of possibilities...

The question has to be asked - have todays abrupt weather disruptions been a result of intentional technological military intervention as well as the more orthodox human-pollution climate effects?
