The Apex

The above articles offer a glimpse into a rising tide of pathology scorching the global consciousness. There is a veritable storm of complex forces presently battling, appeasing, joining, consuming, subsuming or resisting.  The friction is electric out there. No doubt you feel it impinging on awareness in a variety ways.  It feels like an apex of change is in sight.

We have US police brutality and abuse which almost defies description, symptomatic of a nation engineered for decline; various countries (in this case, Japan) pushing state surveillance and SMART society programming;  clear evidence of US-NATO, Turkey, Israel, Qatar, UAE, Saudi Arabia working on behalf of their Western masters to supply weapon shipments to Daesh / ISIS and Al-Qaeda affiliated mercenary  groups – all handsomely paid for their trouble; more evidence of the United States extrajudicial assassination program mirrored in the UK assisted by the growing obsession with drone technology; yet another ridiculous case of a “terrorist” appears on the ever-burgeoning Terror Watch List, this time in the guise of a 4-year old; US-NATO Establishment cartels busy expanding their wars for corporate profits and psychopathic ideology of total control, while the health effects of Wi-Fi continue to raise alarm bells just as they did with mobile phone use and a growing realisation that genuine environmental activism is being ponerised toward corporate interests and the Establishment agenda of UN Agenda 21 and their “one world” SMART society.

These reports are a window into some of the current trends of our world, all of which are interrelated through a common theme: the psycho-social infection of the psychopath who is presently taking every domain of our global societies to the edge of chaos. Each represents a tributary into a raging River of Change which cannot possibly end in anything other than dissolution and destruction.

I don’t know about you but it dawned on me earlier this week in a rather visceral fashion that we have passed the point of no return. At about 3.00am in the morning – the veritable witching hour where the demons stir and emotions and memories of what the world could be rise up and meet the moon – I felt the most enormous anxiety and dread which quickly dissipated to leave only intense sadness. I slipped out of bed, rolled a cigarette and stepped outside.  This anxiety then transformed to a slice of moon-lit “excitement” (lunacy?) as if various opposites were wielding their swords within me.  It’s difficult to describe other than the unnerving realisation that I’d almost become a receiver picking up a multitude of dissonant signals from God knows where…One rock song on the radio from earlier in the day kept flashing through my mind which seemed particularly apt. A portion of the lyrics kept replaying over and over and layered with the hint of a cruel grin:

It’s with me still,
I need a pill,
It’s taking me over,
My brain is fried,
It’s suicide,
Crazy time …

I’m losing touch,
Can’t lose too much,
It’s taking me over …”

Regardless of your musical predilections, you might pick up on the melancholic tension and feverish anticipation in the song and how it seemed to fit my mood. (Increase the volume to maximum and you’ll be in the ball-park for this metaphor…)

***

So, what was “with me still”?

Far from being a need to escape into subjective reality via a drug induced stupor, perhaps it was the result of coming nose to nose with the world’s objective reality;  an almost gothic sense of despair wrapped around an intense electrical excitement running in a loop, over and over, as if something was trying to break free external to my own psyche; something which was imminent.

“It’s taking me over…”

And these moments occasionally bring us back to the red pill /blue pill scenario and the reaction of which can lead to: …I’ll have a steak please…and keep that wine coming…Nothing to see here…And nothing to remember.

But once you see this world as it is, you can’t forget it. Not if you wish to extract yourself from it’s lies and deceit.

My cigarette smoke drifted across the clear sky and stars. It seemed both beautiful and oppressive. What was this desolation rising up inside?  The loss of conscience in the world at large?  Or my own snail’s pace “progress” toward any kind of authenticity? Or perhaps it was all an excuse to be self-indulgent…?

It’s always the same: so many lies deeply rooted in ourselves, so much weakness and apathy, resistance to beauty, love and objective truth clouded by centuries of rapacious violence to the soul. And even now, we still persistently claim the opposite, that we have somehow purged ourselves of all our shadows and denials and taken the higher ground in the domains of activism and “seeking truth.”

I’m not so sure.

Not to say there aren’t some great trail-blazers out there amid this global information explosion … Yet, when I take a long, hard look at the intense activity of the internet and the alternative media I still see more egos, axe-grinding, grandstanding and general narcissistic behaviour than ever before. (And this is before any of the monopolising tactics and corporate controls). These are the natural effects of living under a variety of psychological deviants who have made it their pastime to funnel normal people into their perception of reality.

What is so tragic is that so many of us don’t see that we are dancing to their tune in the ways we react to this pathology. And popular reaction is the bread and butter of the state and their agencies.

An example would be those who produce their radio shows, podcasts and write their blogs; disseminate information about resisting evil and even travel the country giving lectures – in some cases for free. Then some of these “teachers” advocate gun rights and the defence of their property by any means necessary. (Cue photo of orator with a semi-automatic looking suitably angry – “I mean business dude.”)

Okay, you have many modern day counter-culture, anti-establishment and ‘spiritual’ leaders who encourage you to arm yourself against the State and also urge a crowd-base call for mass revolution. In reality, this conduct has the Establishment salivating with anticipation since it is precisely the reaction they seek to encourage. This is the hook by which radio talk show host Alex Jones and others inspire resistance in the minds of young activists and alternative media journalists, through an undercurrent of guns, ammo and revolution in the tradition of 1776. We play right into their hands by responding in this way. If we look at the history of revolutions rarely are they connected to true emancipation, rather it is the occult Establishment’s way of tapping into genuine social unrest to achieve their own ends. It’s the same old Hegelian dialectic writ large.

Break it, to re-make it

Nothing much has changed.

Sure, one has the right to own guns and to defend that right. And of course, gun control is a red herring designed to de-fang the populace and ramp up the fear factor via mass shootings. But encouraging resistance head on is misguided. How do you think that’s going to end under this pathocracy? Look at what police raids are doing right now in downtown Amerika. Look at the level of brutality and death perpetrated by law enforcement. What do you think is going to happen when American Patriots and gun-toting alternative media hosts join together because they have “truth on their side”?

Carnage.

Perhaps even civil war, precisely the kind of fragmentation and social chaos needed to “remake” America in line with World State aspirations.

This is World Order strategy based on very ancient beliefs in feudalism for the masses so that the mass mind remains in the strait-jacket to which it has become accustomed. It moves with the times by employing conscious and unconscious “change agents” in each societal domain. It is the drug of adrenaline and dopamine flowing from emotional reactions of our “teachers” and activists’ inflated egos which feeds into the Three Establishment Model and their continuing plans for a targeted and controlled demolition of society. The inducement of emotional reaction and active, “righteous” aggression is essential to that end.

The more anger and fear you can create the better. That’s the whole point. It’s a balancing act for sure, but they usually get what they want as history attests.  Society begins to gets a sniff of what’s going on and wars are introduced. The latest economic free-for-all has run the deregulated coffers dry and more centralisation is needed, time to create asymmetric war and coloured revolutions tweaking latent tribal divisions, torrential propaganda and synthetic distractions from technology. They need your emotional capital to fuel their agenda: break the spirit, build anew, In THEIR image; total war through psychological terror from overseas and most importantly from domestic “threats” from within. This is why reactionary personas with their often messianic missions and the idea that they have “DUH TROOF” is so dangerous to ordinary folks but very useful to the authorities.

gun-toting

It isn’t the fact that the information is wrong (although it often is, by design or by beliefs) the problem lies in the fact that it is they who become liable since they are so identified with their role and thus wide open to manipulation from their enemy. This is HUBRIS, the definition of which is  “excessive pride towards or defiance of the gods, leading to nemesis.” In the tradition of Greek tragedy, they fail to see how easily they can be slaves to their emotions, getting high on the passion of leadership and thus incurring the wrath of our self-elected “Gods.”

This hubris doesn’t defend or reduce the power of such a nemesis but actually inflates it through the inability to see their own self-importance. They fail to perceive that the confrontation they seek will only produce more chaos and a reaction from authorities who positively seek any excuse to go to the next phase of totalitarian oppression. They hugely underestimate the extent to which these psychopaths will go to achieve their ends.

You see, we are not dealing with what we have come to understand as human beings, rather the image of a human being mimicking the normalcy of the human condition or those with the potential for exercising conscience. We have what amounts to humanoids holding most positions of power in our world and which has now chronically infected government agencies and our social systems.

CoIntelpro for Everyone

Accordingly, departments within agencies of western intelligence – responding to trickle down orders from a relatively small coterie of deluded and deranged – have been steadily developing new and ingenious ways of corralling the global population. In terms of “information dominance” they knew precisely the way this brand of internet-based activism would unfold since they had for many decades been testing their methodologies of mind control and psychological coercion techniques upon the civil rights, nuclear disarmament, animal rights, peace and psychedelia movements of the 1960s and 1970s. Yet, in truth, this was merely a modern day outgrowth of the latent seeds of authoritarianism waiting for the Hysteroidal Cycle to come around once again, where a nations population would be suitably tenderised and dumbed down so that a full blown pathocracy could emerge,  the signs of which we can see only too clearly in the United States.

They knew how to disarm awareness first and channel it into often subtle by-ways second via think tanks, NGOs, and their countless memes of change seeded on the internet. From the standpoint of corporatism’s advertising and marketing, the web is a battleground for the real estate of your neuroplastic mind. This applies equally to the search for truth which encompasses subjects such as the 9/11 truth movement, geopolitical commentary, human rights and most certainly the hot potato of Israel and their destruction of the Palestinian people to name just a few. You can tell exactly who is an agent of obfuscation and disinformation by seeing what these people will allow and what they will not allow in their forums and on their blogs; whether their beliefs are conducive to truth seeking or actually serve as an impediment, thus useful for those who have a far greater perspective on humanity’s trajectory.


How to Spot CoIntelpro Agents   |  25 Rules of Disinformation


This is largely the case with Alex Jones who falls into the category of a paid shill or conscious agent. David Icke is another who may have started off with genuine intent but was so full of his own importance that he couldn’t see that he was setting himself up for major co-option. Mix in a blood-drinking and baby-sacrificing British royal family and reptilian shape-shifters with the more sober subjects of economic and conspiratorial control, topped off with “all you need is love” idea of consciousness, it becomes a heady brew designed to distract and oppose the very things Icke believes he is encouraging: freedom of the mind. In both cases however, the net result is to vector objective awareness of what is really going on in the world into a variety of sensationalist dead-ends with just enough truth to keep the often younger minds locked in.

In Jone’s case for instance, he rarely mentions anything related to Zionism and Israel who remain at the forefront of global deception and false flag terror. His belligerent and bellicose style is so patently over-the-top that he can rarely be taken seriously by anyone – which is the general idea. His support for violent revolution along with a heavy commercial angle to his burgeoning media Empire vacuums up all and everything conspiracy-related therefore managing, by association, to tarnish more reputable outlets who are actually interested in the truth. Far from assisting people to understand the true nature of world events he relies on hyperbole, rumour and sensationalism mixed in with enough “inside intel” to keep younger members coming back for more. Jones is the primary pied piper for conspiracy consumerism. He is not interested in educating his audience but transposing his agenda onto those seeking genuine awareness.

Where some alternative news websites encounter censorship at the hands of Google, it seems Alex Jones always manages to remain at the top, ready to peddle his aggressive, emotionally-driven fundamentalism. It is a clever ruse of tabloid information masquerading as truth-seeking. If you ever had to look for a “limited hangout” operation within alternative news and conspiracy websites – Alex Jones fits the bill to a T.

After all, it was Jones (so he likes to say) that predicted the 9/11 attacks before anyone else. One has to ask if that was so, who gave him this piece of information so that he could ride the wave of conspiracy fervour right into the waiting spotlight? His handlers perhaps?

Indeed, a coterie of paid and unpaid shills are rounded up for this very purpose way in advance of public awareness. Learning to see who is and who isn’t the real deal requires hard work, a honed bullshit-o-meter and access to a genuine network, the likes of which are not thick on the ground. (In fact, I only know one that is worth it’s weight in gold). So, anyone that you see pushing American Patriot fundamentalism and urging pro-active reaction against the government is either deluded, a bit dense or is paid by the government to do so. (Or all three). That is not to say that any activism is wrong. Not at all. But civil disobedience has to be carefully targeted so that maximum awareness of key principles is achieved. You cannot change the State and its minions but you can open the eyes of those seeking alternatives to grow outside of Official Culture. (More on this in a future post).

Alex Jones disinformation shill co-opting truth seekers.

The Establishment are licking their lips at the thought of overtly and explicitly rounding up dissidents and subversives and actively preparing for such a scenario after the coming economic meltdown which is coming, of that you can be sure. If you are grandstanding and encouraging such “revolution” it will get you killed and martyred for the cause. Except you won’t be a martyr – you’ll be someone who is just another useful idiot who thought he could beat the state head on. You merely hastened your role as domestic cannon fodder.

Dissident violence meeting State violence doesn’t work. It never has. Yet, there has been an endless procession of trail-blazers and “truthers” under the delusion that they can change society and change the world according to their individual ideas as to how it should work, and whilst remaining inside the belly of the beast. They also make the mistake in thinking that they are invincible thereby showing that they have not reached a state of humility regarding the material forces on this earth and beyond. They make the mistake that because they have gone through the fires of hell to get where they have, they subconsciously imagine: “…this is where I’m at and there is nothing more I need to learn.” Actually, this is just the beginning. If you take on the responsibility to inform others about the nature of this reality and you reach a significant threshold of success and popularity, you better be damn sure you have a network of genuine support in place.

And most importantly, if you are ALLOWED to do what you do, ask yourself why? Is it because you have the whole banana? Doubtful. And in fact maybe it is a case of being so far from the truth that you become useful to the State in sowing confusion and misinformation?

As you begin to make progress and feel like you’ve been given the keys to unlock truths for others, you might reach the stage where you accrue all kinds of “helpful” individuals who provide you with enlightening information and “big secrets” about the way the world works at the highest levels of skulduggery. You may even believe you really can change the external world (rather than your perception of it) and are convinced that you have a handle on the scope and requirements for the mission. Moreover, if you are supported in your endeavour and have relatively little interference then you can be reasonably sure that you have gargantuan gaps in your awareness and are actually assisting the Establishment and their endgame. This is how CoIntelpro works and most assuredly within the realm of high strangeness beyond the five senses.

Aside from conscious agents the more you consider that you have the low-down on how things work here on this right royally screwed planet of ours, the more one permits exclusive belief to dominate and therefore increases the likelihood that you are actually being groomed as a pawn, patsy and useful idiot without one iota of awareness of the fact. This assistance only requires the belief that we must struggle against these forces and play them at their own game, rather than struggling against our frailties within, which produced these vulnerabilities in the first place. I suggest that it is this struggle that potentially places us in a better position to discern and discriminate the various degrees of bullshit in the external world not whether we have a tattoo on our shoulder, sing the national anthem after a vegan breakfast or subscribe to Alex Jone’s media channel.

Ignoring the Psychopaths’ World

You ever feel like that hamster in the above wheel? An activist, scholar, occultist or journalist getting high on the cause and feeling you’re making a difference until the spin throws you half way across the cage? And yet, we seem to just get up and do it all over again, usually because we cannot face the awful truth that what we do makes no difference at all. It’s not that funny really. Though no doubt the cosmic trickster is doubling up with hilarity. This is however the truth. This is the story of humanity for the last two thousands years. Around and around in a loop where soul and spirit is still caught between materialism and religious extremism and awakening minds are caught between CoIntelpro and more sophisticated paranormal forces of control which as yet, won’t fit inside the collective mind.

I know what you’re thinking. This is wrong. It’s not that bleak. I’m being a major party pooper and unjustly raining on your unique parade.

Fuck you dude. We can change the world.

Perhaps.  But maybe not quite in the way that Alex Jones would have you believe. 

I actually quite like Nafeez Ahmeds’ contribution to the subject of “changing the world” which is simple and concise: One — Start with you  Two — Continue with those around you and Three — Create something new.  Seeing the world in all its negative and positive glory doesn’t mean sitting on your arse and navel-gazing about how wonderful / horrific it all is. But the key thing to remember is to educate ourselves as to how DEEP the darkness truly is and how clever it’s machinations. Without this comprehension we cannot fully realise the light potential within and ignite it in others. it’s like we have too many shutters and buffers to truth. It’s only a logical differential after all.

That said, the object of this article is not to send you into a tailspin of interminable depression. It’s always paradoxical. When you comprehend just how far down in the collective poop we are this realisation offers an instant candle to light your way out of that stinky gloom. And one way is to observe our emotional reactions in relation to psychopathy and its related pathology that presses in on our minds. By choosing not to engage and by learning the ways of psychopathy within our institutions and social systems and how it has distorted our vision of the world we gain the ability to divert much needed inner energy so that we may cope with reality – as it is. This economy of energy is akin to a akido maneuver which allows us to dip under the radar of “The Matrix”. This is the first step to true independence.

If we choose to react to the psychopath’s world using their methods we are already locked into their game-plan, and once inside, we are effectively an extension of their designs, thinking that we are fighting the good fight in equal opposition to evil. This is very much part of the hypnotism of a further cave inside Plato’s cave. It is self-replicating illusion that we are in control. Once you see the Magician behind the curtain, the mistake is to believe that we must fight it head on and indeed, that this magician wasn’t one of many the deeper you dig.

The only way we can defend against the psychopathic incursions into our lives and the havoc they wreak against the world at large is to not participate in any of their lies and distortions; to ignore their authority by peaceful, civil disobedience where necessary, and by ignoring their demands to react. Most importantly, to defend our soul by purifying the source within. And that means healing our emotions and learning to recognise and respect what IS and refusing to pander to willful blindness and personal beliefs. Building a new world must take place in ourselves parallel to creating the foundation of new communities outside the psychopathic paradigm in which we live.

Changing ourselves is an ongoing, ambitious process which doesn’t stop just because we have gone through an occult school and think we know their nefarious plans, or that we have progressed through the ranks of journalistic integrity and feel ourselves immune to the propaganda and pay-cheques that come our way. Or maybe we thought we had achieved a strategic enclosure of tried and tested strength and along came spiritual partners and activists who gave us the last pieces of the puzzle in such synchronous ways that it had to be true! Destiny and protection was at work!  In fact, with notoriety and exposure comes an immediate tracking and targeting in innumerable ways to render people useless. And this happens primarily through insufficient awareness of our weaknesses. Pumped egos and wishful thinking is a great opportunity to have our butts kicked in a host of colourful ways. I should know.

You see, it’s easy to preach to the choir as I and many others have done on various other blogs, websites and social media. The internet is an incredible tool. It is a global brain seeking to connect; a technological zeitgeist of unparalleled potential. There is no question that many minds are waking up to the nature of the State and the endemic lies and mediocrity that it must produce in order to exist. Nevertheless, it could be said we are all here at this level of existence precisely because we “fit.” We are all here because we have been given the chance to “see the light” in ourselves and then choose how we may manifest that process of becoming in the material world, so that we may have some chance to move into a more authentic reality. (This may be more literal than we think)

What is it that we must accomplish over and above resisting government mendacity? To confront ourselves in our quest to root out lies and to join together with others who are actively attempting the same – whether through art, journalism, communitarianism or environmental activism or a natural synthesis of all four. A spiritual process of shedding illusions and beliefs, healing our emotions and learning to achieve a measure of wholeness in our lives must kick start this process instead of Official Culture’s requisite fragmentation and narcissism to which we have all been inculcated. Accomplishment and activism take on a different trajectory where we IGNORE state controls and bypass their inducements to react against their inhumanity. It requires a long-term approach and a strong measure of self-control in the face of easy temptation to engage. Not so much Rage against the Machine as to re-direct it, so that this power goes where it is needed in order to affect change with the minimum of interference. 

Moreover, to be truly effective there must be an awareness of psychopathy and the nature of its psycho-spiritual infection within every social domain and discipline. If not, the creativity is wide open to subversion. Inspiration and good intentions are nothing without real-world knowledge of psychopathy and pathology which exists among us and from which we have all suffered in some form or another. If we do not address this crucial aspect of evil, we will accomplish nothing more than to repeat yet another cycle of involution and dissipation, where souls wink out as if they had never been there at all.

And so it begins all over again…Yet, countless stars send out the ancient light of their existence as if to warn us that what humanity is facing now has probably been faced countless times before; that these sparks of conscience are routinely extinguished as a natural equation. The harvest of those who followed their essence begins while those who acquiesced to evil took another ride on that interminable merry-go-round we call earthly life. Regardless, the Universe is going its own way as it always will and it is offering us the chance to choose creativity or entropy. This choice between two poles – ascent or descent, the choice to SEE – is becoming urgent.

The point of no return occurred through the slow engineering of psychopathic belief which gave birth to the State and humanity’s subsequent mind-numbing adherence to a morally bankrupt authority. We allowed the Western mainstream media to sell 9/11 as an attack by Muslim extremists. We permitted a cabal of psychopaths to gradually infect our social systems to the point that there could be no other outcome. Whatever the mix of complex causes, the reality in which we find ourselves is now so dire, so utterly bereft of collective conscience that we are now moving toward the inevitable denouement where the Earth will stretch a little, work up a fever and slough off the psycho-spiritual virus of evil that is manifesting through the apathy, greed, and callous indifference of the psychopaths and narcissists of our troubled world. That means there is an opportunity for all of us to grow in ways unimagined. And unfortunately, since there are still not enough of us seeing reality as it is – warts and all – this confrontation with truth will be harsh and unforgiving.

It seems the Universe and cosmic processes do not give personal attention until you are moving toward a singular type of resonance which is a consciously directed choice to seek a creativity that purifies, heals and receives; an internal revolution that is alchemical at its inception, the results of which must act as a catalyst of change in others. It only becomes personal when we consciously elect to work toward this creative stream rather than lie in the glamorous mud of its entropic down-flow.

At least that is how it appears to me from the past up to the present.

The world is presently basking in the negative juices made up of our denials, and bubbling away very nicely indeed with the consciousness of billions about to become the main course to those denizens of a dimension so beyond the conceptions of most that it would be pointless to even try to point it out. They have done so well in corralling humanity for thousands of years it is hardly likely that in a critical mass of earnest seekers of truth – most of whom are following a legion of CoIntelpro pied-pipers – could suddenly perform a quantum feat of magic and permit such unpalatable realities to fit inside the heads of many. It’s a fait accompli. It won’t work.

If so many still crave authority and actively and wantonly pretend that subjective reality is what counts; are willing to burn the very seed of their souls to believe it, then there is always the possibility that they’ll take us down the cosmic plug-hole with them… Yet, the wish for a New World will not arrive through activism alone and certainly not in terms of a strictly materialist perspective. The die has already been cast. How we respond to these micro-macrocosmic changes will determine which reality will find us.

Numerous worlds and many timelines may be shimmering and coalescing just out of phase… Many of us could find ourselves in a literally different reality depending on how attentive we have been to objective truth in ourselves and in the same vain, how well we have paid attention to the world as it undergoes transformation.

As stated in a previous post, there will come a time – perhaps very soon – where it will be imperative that we get into groups, not only for physical survival in the short-term but to create the binding glue of future communities armed with knowledge that protects and nourishes. Now is the time to forge these links with those who see the writing on the wall and with those whom you know you can trust. And if you do not have close family or friends, it might be time to begin forging those links. No man can afford to be an island these days.

You can’t wake anyone up. It’s a natural process. All you can do is strengthen what is naturally within and link up with those who “get it,” at whatever level that maybe. So, it falls back to the individual to revolutionise him or herself, to be the example instead of projecting fear and anger onto convenient outer demons. Perhaps this is where evil represents the anvil upon which we sharpen the sword of the soul.

When you see the face of evil lurking inside your own being, it changes you forever. It changes you because you realised you are just a puppet on a string lost in this toxic sea of illusion in which our psychopathic brethren are so at home. Until we see that we are meat-machines made up of a psycho-chemical cocktail of influences – none of which are our own we will be prey to the crypto-geographic influences of Wetiko and our childhood traumas inculcated as “normality”.

We have to fight, tooth and claw to find the essence that is truly us, then we have to surrender to that process like a snake that is shedding its skins. THEN you can begin to separate from evil because you have seen how it uses you; you have heard how it sniggers as you go about your daily life thinking you have the answers when all along you are just a little man, a little woman, sucking at the teat of a vast self-replicating abyss. 

How could I say such a thing? I send love and light to all; I say my prayers like a good Christian; I get my prayer mat out and bow my head to the Imam Mahdi…

We are just machines fed on lies for centuries so that we are fattened up for the kill in this momentous period of Great Reckoning.

Have I made you think that perhaps I’m not being “positive” enough or that I have relinquished all hope for a better outcome? Or every cloud has new age silver lining? That we create our little red-waxed Secret reality?

Ignorance and willful blindness ensure that we never find out how such patently obvious bullshit is sold to us because we – I – have been too afraid to let go of a carefully crafted mask, a mask I see everywhere I go, a mask that presently fits like a cast iron cage around this jewel of an Earth.

Yet despite this, when you see what a deep, dark pit we have dug for ourselves you can also see with dramatic clarity our part in that suffocating descent. And it is that clarity which drives us to forge something new within in order to take action without. And this action cannot be identified with changing the world. It can only be about aligning to that which is spiritually, objectively authentic; that which is receptive to growth and nourishment rather than an exclusive service to oneself. This in turn must have its expression in a pragmatic preparation without anticipation or obsession; without any trace of fear. Not at all easy, but it may well determine the outcome.

After all, if you have faith and trust in the Universe then we must apply it in practical ways. It doesn’t respond to “wait and see” and sitting on the fence. It responds to effort directed toward ourselves and in response to our environment; by co-creating with nature and preparing the ground…The probability of adding something spiritually significant during one’s lifetime and which may not become apparent until after death, is part of that cycle. Religion has nothing to do with it, science and experiential verification shared and pooled with others most certainly does.

The New Heresy and Snake-oil Secrets

Can you not hear the cries of those hundreds of thousands of “witches” and “wizards” “heretics” and “heathens” burned on the pyres outside their own homes and in the cobbled streets? This heresy continues today. Those that love truth and resist the psychopaths’ dream must stay connected to objective reality whilst being immersed in serial pathology of varying degrees. We must take responsibility for ourselves by becoming aware that there is Truth which reveals universal principles of values, morals and cooperation. Rather than burning alive these dissenters the State now weaves a softer spell of totalitarianism as the first phase toward its classical expression. Meanwhile, an Orwellian invocation is at work and so deep that we have come to love our consumerist distractions; to become addicted to the infinite flavours of Official Culture so that our slavery is wired in from birth.

When we are confronted with the fact that authoritarianism and hierarchy as expressed in this Synthetic Age is pathological, the vast majority of us cannot detach themselves from it’s mainframe. They cannot function without this authority overshadowing them – it would mean an end to their self-concept and ability to make sense of the world. Thus dissolution would ensure and a fall headlong into their own mini abyss, which up until that point had been kept in abeyance by the State, its Rule of Law, regulations,  social strictures and the kind of guiding parameters that limit growth and divert it toward the centralisation of group consciousness and uniformity.

Giving away our response-ability and embracing such atomisation is far more corrosive to the soul (should it be present at all) than the horror of physical torture and pain. Once one has chosen to believe the lie and to willfully join evil – even if it is decked with sweet-sounding words and seductive images of freedom – you become subsumed into that same monumental lie where your very soul is accessed, processed and eaten.

And then you become a “light-eater” yourself. You become the living dead. What is most tragic is that we don’t even know it. 

But we create our own reality! All there is is love!

Not only is this a gross distortion on the nature of reality but it becomes a horrible caricature of truth when you recall the young boys passed around Westminster paedophiles like candy, to be raped to death (yes that’s right – raped to death) and discarded in rubbish dumps; when you remember the catholic priests who defiled and stomped on innocence to satisfy their desires, whilst relying on successive Popes to cover up their deeds; not forgetting the children sold into slavery every minute of everyday, who are abused, murdered in snuff films and satanic forms of rituals at the behest of some of the highest movers and shakers in the land.

Our beloved media makes it easy for us to move on to the next infotainment news item where reality and fantasy naturally blur. Clearly, the new age market place wishes us to believe that these children did not think positively enough about their reality and thus brought in upon themselves. Not being privy to the The Secret, the Universe it seems, cast them into an unyielding determinism where Rhonda Bryne’s re-packaged “sacred wisdom” could have saved them from such Predators. What this disinformation actually counsels is the inflation of ego by getting something for nothing while spinning the very core concepts of spirituality into self-help capitalism as the arbiter of happiness. 

The idea of spiritual growth has become as much a commodity as the dead children it helps us forget.

And talking of death, I see it sitting on my shoulder daily. It reminds me that nothing I ever do will ever alter the fact that it will come for me. Yet, death is my friend. He shines with the wisdom of the Dark Half of God as much as the Light. Neither can exist without each other. Knowledge defines which one we will embrace before any notion of love and light enters in. And the shadowsphere knows this. It binds us so tightly that we cannot breathe or pay attention to anything which whispers a remembrance of who we truly are. 

This concept doesn’t even approach the sheer depth of darkness which spreads over every rock and wraps around every star busy screaming their ancient echos from deep space. Yet the light travels through that blackness and it is never extinguished. It can never dissipate. Just like the choices we make to change ourselves. Once we take on that choice and truly decide to bring all the separated pieces of ourselves back together, however long it takes, you can be sure that you will see yourself reflected in those stars, which in turn, are integral constituents of endless patterns of galaxies and universes without end.

How then can we give up, when we see our very essence reflected in deep space?

One more cigarette and I close the door on the night.

 

Dedicated …

… to those, known and unknown, who continue to be murdered by those with no conscience and a supreme contempt for humanity; by those whose impunity allows them to routinely stand on the neck of the child in poverty, the child neglected, the child abused and the lives of children whose only crime was to be born.

Maybe, “wise” old patriarch, banker and statesman, maybe at the gates of death you will find a frail child’s fingers curling into your own and maybe then you will learn what it is to hold redemption at the mouth of oblivion, a gaping maw that you gladly mistook for  home.

There will be only a musical symmetry – the perfect sound equation of what could have been; The reflection of the major and minor notes of choice which oscillate every millisecond of our lives and the realisation that we are roped and tied to his descent.

Dark Skies, Community and Cooperation (I)

 By M.K. Styllinski

Note: It wasn’t my intention to post again until the New Year at the earliest but I felt I had to write something in light of the horrific Paris attacks, albeit tangential. I want to review what has got to this point and broach the subject of community and begin to explore how to make its presence felt in the face of these dark skies. The following post might be part of an ongoing series to continue … at some point.

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”

– Buckminster Fuller

Hard to believe in the face of darkening skies, but one way or another, the emergence of community and cooperation is coming.

Unfortunately, it will likely come from intense collective suffering rather than any radical change instituted by our societies’ leaders and their deluded minions. What is certain: any shred of hope in our current systems of centralised government has been irrevocably lost within the last 15 years of the Bush/Cheney and Obama administrations, including many governments across Europe. Our response must be to turn away and re-enchant human values and a community ethos on our own, whilst ignoring those in power who have created, perpetuated and fed on needless destruction and atrocity for so long. By refusing to react to their depredations we become free to build templates for social networks of LIVING communities based on pragmatic and practical solutions. No one is going to do it for us – least of all those who benefit from the old patterns of endless exploitation. And as we come together to build these communities in our towns, cities, suburbs and rural villages we will slowly recognise what it means to live in decentralised, socially and economically empowered organisations which both honour the individual and the collective. By doing so, the sum of its parts is enriched as a natural consequence.

During the next decade or less we will probably be forced to set up community building due to necessity and not by choice, such is the trajectory that our governments are determined to follow. The sooner we see the writing on the wall the sooner we can start to forge these connections that will see us through; providing mutual support in our immediate locality. Strong community ties will be the difference between victimisation and psycho-social survival in the face of economic breakdown and environmental catastrophe, the signs of which have never been greater.

It IS possible. And the connections are beginning to form.

The recent atrocity of the Paris attacks on Friday November 13th, 2015 represents yet another chapter in Establishment psychopathy seeking to enforce its will. More innocents dead, more pain and grief circulating the world like a heavy, leaden pall seeping into so many lives and tainting all with a sense of hopelessness and futility.

(Russian mainstream news is the only outlet to offer a true narrative as to the true nature of the attacks. See here, here, here and here for further information).

A friend living in Paris recently sent me an email in which he berated the left and communists whom, in his view were saying that the West was responsible. He believed the real culprit was the rise of militant Islam.  This is a caricature of the nature of the problem, misunderstanding that Islamism is a Frankenstein, a homonculus made to serve geopolitical aims of Western elites. Fragmenting consciousness into left, right, black, white, secular, religious etc. is the strategy of terrorism, to create tribal divisions fuelled by fear, anger and a sense of helplessness which serve to polarize latent beliefs. These manifest in actions which encourage long suppressed emotions and desperate frustrations to burst forth as crime or misplaced activism. Emotional capital and the instinct of fear are eminently malleable, where forced choices lead to ready-made “solutions” dangerous to the ordinary man and woman but useful collateral for the government and world Establishment.

The latest collective demon to up the imperialist ante and take over from Al-Qaeda is ISIS/ISIL. Far from failures of intelligence and inept foreign policy their presence on the world stage “… is the result of concerted, immense, multinational state-sponsorship.” The fear and hatred engendered by such evil has enormous repercussions in every facet of our lives, from the refugee exodus to increasing state surveillance and the erosion of civil liberties.

However “aware” we think we are so much of our personality is still tied to the addictive power of tribal thought forms and peer group pressure. Stepping out of that into one’s own sovereign world is often frightening but necessary on the road to true self-reliance.  Nothing is more important to those who consider themselves wardens of our existence than to restrict emancipation of our innate creativity and natural predisposition for cooperation and mutualism. Accordingly, when we live under a society that has become gradually pathologised, then the basic framework of values and morals begin to fall away in favour of paramoralistic and paralogical discourse. The lowest ebb of human instinct and emotion blur the boundaries between moderation and extremes. And the more a society begins to function on shock value, and a narcissistic fast-food mentality, the more extreme behaviour becomes  in order to feel something, anything that shows we are alive instead of the legions of the walking dead.

A psychopathic minority’s continued dominance through history must depend on a cycle of managed chaos to keep the normal people oblivious to their existence. For groups of psychopaths who inveigled themselves into key positions of power, the only way to allow  unfettered freedom for their predatory behaviour is to hijack social systems and institutions; to invert sound ideologies so that they are constantly predisposed to destructive, backward perceptions of reality. And it has worked, time after time and age after age, where secrecy, hierarchical authority and the good intentions of normal people are used to provide perfect cover.

The terror industry is a prime example of government PR designed to hoodwink the public into thinking evil terrorists are under every bed and on every street corner. When in fact, although extremism does exist and is on the rise, the majority of atrocities are either black operations carried out by governments and their often outsourced agencies and paid assassins or entrapment operations involving agents who stimulate jihadists to carry out the same.  Unless the public at large becomes educated on the nature of terrorism as an age-old geopolitical tool of control we will continue to re-play exactly the same responses, playing right into the hands of our governments and their string-pullers. And so it is.

After about 15 years of analysing the nature of terror attacks, intelligence agencies and the rise of the centralist State in Western societies there is no doubt whatsoever in my mind that false flag terrorism as a tool of warfare has had a long history and is as old as warfare itself; where acts of terror perpetrated against innocent civilians serve to galvanise the opposing forces into open conflict. Most importantly, it is a war against ordinary civilians who pose a threat to the Establishment’s order. Civil war in society and a crackdown on those who question the accepted narrative is the goal.

It is a tried and tested formula used to involve ethnic groups, regions and whole nations in wars that offer massive profits for relatively few. Banksters roll into the targeted country and tempt corrupt politicians and businesses with unlimited power and prestige which is then mandated under global economic law, enforced by the IMF and World Bank to place countries in life-long debt. This consists of asset stripping, social welfare destruction, corporate colonisation and access to virgin resources such as oil, land, minerals and gas. Gaining control of whole countries by installing dictators working for Anglo-American masters has characterised most of Western foreign policy and their cynical international alliances forged in the last two centuries. This is the story of pathocratic Empires and the propagation of false narratives necessary for their ascendance.

In the Age of Information we have access to rich, empirical evidence that the very inception of the State and its agencies – democratic or otherwise – has never been about protecting or providing for the people who can’t take care of themselves. In fact, the latter comes about because of statism, not despite it.  These are merely new variations on a theme to control and engineer compliance. Huxleyian and Orwellian control has always been at the kernel of Western “democracy” where true autonomous networks of self-regulating and self-organised communities based around freedom of thought and spiritual emancipation have been continually prevented from developing. Examples of communities have occurred though inevitably flawed and abortive, to be reabsorbed into the  leviathan State and its outposts.

Intelligence agencies are now a highly compartmentalised law unto themselves serving those without conscience and whose only purpose is to corral and control the world populace for specific long-term goals. Authoritarian followers inhabit its environments and self-censoring beliefs give the glue for plausible denial. Terrorism has always been a tool for herding the public into pens of belief which serve the Establishment of governments, monarchies, military and corporate worlds and their many organisations and agencies. Post World War terrorism and its offshoots is nothing more than a creation of Western governments through the auspices of NATO and through high level factions within the agencies of America’s CIA and FBI; Britain’s MI5 and MI6 and Israel’s MOSSAD. There are other affiliations working through ostensibly benign think tanks, financial corporations and economic organisations but these are the key signatures of state-sponsored crime syndicates with operational oversight on world terrorism.

This is no conspiracy theory but merely an unspoken and purposefully excluded history.

Stretching back to Europe’s “stay behind armies” of Operation GLADIO in the 1950’s and 60’s, through to the Middle Eastern land and US-NATO regime changes, British balkanization and Israeli terror tactics of our modern age, the pathological infection of the 3EM continues to camouflage their activities through a morally bankrupted media. Psychopathy infects all sociopolitical and economic pathways. It is now so entrenched that many people still find it impossible to believe that the eulogies and dramatic words of resistance given by our puppet leaders are part of a dog-eared script used time and again. Our sound-bite culture and its social media encourages short attention spans coupled with a lack of education in reading the signs of targeted social programming. Therefore, when are ridiculous leaders dutifully read emotional trigger phrases (“Barbaric” “evil”  “Will not go unpunished…” “”…will track them down” etc.) they add to the propaganda that  governments are somehow opposed to their proxy armies and double agents lying behind all terror groups.

Terrorism IS the State.

It is the both the source and the enabler within an neo-imperialist and military-intelligence framework, using individuals and armies for hire to carry out geopolitical objectives. This is historically labelled the “Strategy of Tension”, a policy which has been extended and updated by the ideologues of globalism. Indeed, most politicians are so obviously incapable of understanding this fact since they are blinded by ambition, a lack of perspicacity and conscious or unconscious realisation of their own limited power to affect change in their role. They are largely told what to say and which auto-cue to look into. In the unlikely event that they choose to grow a conscience their political career is swiftly brought to end, or, if their illumination is dramatic enough a heart attack or cancer is induced. (Yes, it is possible, no, it is not conspiracy paranoia). They are, after all, only in such a position of superficial authority because they have shown absolute willingness to sell their souls for what they perceive is the machinery of the State and the power it confers. They are true minions of Establishment rule and cannot see beyond such choices. Therefore, we must ignore them, and not engage with their anti-human games.

Prime Ministers David Cameron and Francois Hollande – tired puppets on strings, the variations of which we’ve all seen before. Both have been given their orders to stay with the Western narrative of Russia as evil  in order to advance the resource grab objectives of US-NATO interests. Hollande recently moved toward Russia during its routing of ISIS targets and the result was a warning manifested as probable false flag attacks in Paris. Expect events in Germany to follow.


Our culture of “bread and circuses” has now reached exactly the state that Aldous Huxley described in his Brave New World. We see entertainment in endless Youtube videos depicting a thousand ways a human being can fall from a bicycle, a skateboard, sledge or  skis; videos of street fights involving children smashing the shit out of each other in place of a missing rites of passage. We see robberies at supermarkets and petrol stations where the tables are turned and justice appears to be done; we can take perverse pleasure in seeing the products of an equally perverse society spew out those who cannot cope, where crime and mentally ill persons become fused; paraded as social refuse and shoved into the infotainment machine to be reprocessed as new forms of “reality” TV.  Voyeuristic entertainment takes the place of sincere interpersonal connection, where puerile titillation is elevated as a pastime for those equally switched off from true empathy and emotion as those seeking their Youtube seconds of fame.

We have a world of fashion and glamour that elevates death, violence and sexual abuse as art; where anything is art as long as it can be commodified. Marketing and advertising see children’s minds as fresh new real estate to exploit whilst our school systems masquerade as places to educate, stuffing what is left of any child’s natural joy and auto-didactic ability to learn into a test tube of reality so restrictive that the mere concept of freedom and spirit may as well be scrawled on a public toilet door.

Official Culture and the State

That trust is still somnambulistically offered up to our institutions and governments that have routinely sacrificed its people throughout history is testament to both apathy, the disease of disempowerment and inculcated ignorance.  Is it any wonder that so many people have come to love their servitude thinking it normal and healthy? Since there isn’t anything worth emulating then it isn’t surprising that life becomes a case of existing rather than living.  Similarly, large-scale disillusionment of politics has not led to the observation of how the operations of those in power are merely using mass ignorance of socioeconomic and political realities for their own ends. Academia has hung limply on the ladder of its ascent and used corporatism and corruption to maintain its status. It isn’t just politics that needs to be questioned but the whole concept of our societies and the centralised blueprint which permeates our lives.

Entertainment saturating the internet also reflects our desperately bankrupt media who instead of offering a clear appraisal of our world serves up “news” which is carefully vetted and sanitised so that corporations retain their stock dividends and politicians keep their funny money; where torture, sexual abuse and economic warfare against the poor is not only allowed to continue it is purposefully encouraged by wilful blindness and a lack of self-responsibility; accepted by a socio-cultural programming that celebrates narcissism and psychopathy as Hollywood chic. It is the general public itself who keeps this dark, viscous toxicity permanently flowing. It is a learned acquiescence which slowly chokes our conscience and atrophies our hearts and ability to think critically. We become those that believe we are alive when we have nothing original in our mind-body system that we can truly call our own since we are mechanical in thought and emotion.

Like blind puppies sucking at the teat of the State we actually believe we are entitled to something.

What do we expect to get from that which seeks to subjugate and emotionally anesthetize human behaviour from the deep heritage of conscience? All the better to predict and thus control with absolute impunity.

There, there little man … There, there little woman … Go and be the good Ken and Barbie that you are … Eat shit and silicone. Laugh when we say. Clap when we say and take on the weight of our world. 

As long as we have that tribe, that group-think and gadget-based belonging we can forget that we have no energy of our own and thus no intrinsic purpose. By attaching our own shiny feeding tubes to others everything we have ever accumulated has been sucked up from everyone we have ever loved and hated. Wherever we can find a weak spot that energy rushes through us as a steady stream of transitory “nourishment” permitting a temporary respite from what we know lies in the rhythm of daily life, that soft blanket of suffocating mediocrity.

But this energy nutrient, sourced from all the unconscious drama we create doesn’t stop with us. Our feeding tubes never give us enough because Official Culture and the State keeps us attached in a bizarre symbiosis of need. Yet, it eventually strips us of everything authentic we have inside, including our ability to access our true self. Anything approaching the delicate mirage of soul light – that gentle gossamer flame waiting for that cycle of dawn promised through a thousand deaths and cyclic returns – is extinguished along with the potential of true purpose and meaning that is uniquely our own. Which is why we are forever empty inside and addicts to bio-chemical hits laid down in childhood, caught in the trap that we are significant if only we could be or possess this and that; to make it over that green pasture and all would be well…

If we decided to peel away all the layers ossified on the façade we call Mr. ______ or Ms _______, would we find anything at all worth cultivating?

Are any of our thoughts truly our own?

We are living in a reality that allows the soul to be imperceptibly consumed so that the agony of potential is crushed before it can ever be set free. It is stretched out over time; a slow death where the body-mind complex is screaming as loud as our Cosmic Spirit that flows through us. If we were to attune ourselves to the sheer macro cosmic pain flooding the fabric of the Universe we would be changed in millisecond. We would wake up and see that we are not only prostituting our spiritual life but we are actively feeding evil by believing the lies we tell ourselves and thereby accepting the lies promulgated in public life. We would see how inured in this world of fakery we have become; it would make us sick to the stomach, saddened beyond consolation, shocked at the horror of what we truly are – a vampire of emotion conjoined with the werewolf of instinctual responses churning and writhing in us as archetypes of predatory behaviour and always, ALWAYS afraid that we will be discovered.

There is something darker more oppressive in the skies these days. And it is demanding to be recognised.

We are all addicted to Official Culture in some way or another and it seems those most happy with such a state of affairs are those most irretrievably lost.  We are all directly responsible for these continuing atrocities since we consistently offer them the energy to do so by claiming indifference, sitting on the fence or reacting with righteous anger and fighting fire with fire which is precisely the reaction our elite wardens desire.

The pathology that passes for culture has now reached a point of such darkness that I don’t see any way out, accept by participating with it as little as possible with a view to exiting from this dark emotional hailstorm as soon as I can. And rather than purchasing a piece of strong rope and tying it to the cross beam in my garage, I mean to engage with that which is clearly not part of this darkly hilarious idea we call Western civilisation that never was. I mean to ignore this psychopathy passing for culture; to refuse to engage with it as far as is possible. I will not react to the Powers that Be and deny them any energy at all. Perhaps I can create something within myself that is outside and beyond their touch. In doing so, I hope to manifest that link to others who have left that ridiculous cat and mouse game thereby establishing the potential to create community – to eventually exist outside the sheep pens of Official Culture.

I cannot do this however, until I’ve created a centre within.

I cannot do this until I make that promise to grow the soul within, to the point that it begins to manifest on the outside in my relationships and activities. Otherwise, any concept of community seeding itself in our material world will inevitably sprout within the sheep pen – to be eaten as quickly as it came.

We must change ourselves.

I had a chance to do this earlier in my life and I rejected it. Clearly, I wasn’t ready, too damaged by the poisons that made up my fragile personality. Whatever the reason, choices determine our lessons. The faintest glow of soul growth needs friction to become the spark that provides constancy and persistence to see it through to the end.  We are too easily discouraged by negative influences and the myriad phantoms assailing our minds; the daily changes which threaten our gaudy masks of self-conceptualisations. Patterns of learned, negative behaviour overwhelmingly have their origins in our own denials and habitual weaknesses. These shadows, these demons becomes so insistent, so powerful precisely because they have been neglected, buried and denied. Thus it is no surprise that they are unconsciously acted out in our daily lives until the effects of these unhealthy dynamics – to whatever degree – are mirrored back to us. Then we are confronted by choices to understand and transform the hard way.

Perhaps a time is approaching where there is an opportunity to address the barren ecology of our inner lives balanced by a healthy, simple attention to external duties. The latter will become a good way monitor our successes and failures, that is, if we have that drive to be truly something other than a bio-chemical machine prey to every social meme and fear-based belief of the day.

What matters is the effects we have upon others. That is the simplest barometer of objectivity we can use to gauge our progress.

I mean to explore what it means to be part of community – what it is to have true, joyous meaning in one’s life, where everyone cares for each other because each and every person has access to his or her own well-spring of creativity which is naturally disbursed. This occurs because everyone knows that sharing of this kind enriches the whole. It is drawn from a once vestigial but spiritual umbilical cord to the Universal Ocean of the same; where Truth equates to beauty and is embodied in the lives of the community as an artistic way of living – the true art of alchemy, the antidote to the prevailing anti-human ethos.

It has taken me decades to reach a point where I can even begin to make tentative steps to address my own part in this film of life and a further 8 years of conscious experiential discovery to see if there is anything within worth salvaging. I am convinced that most of us have the potential to find our purpose within this complex mosaic of interaction, strangely interrelated and interconnected by the perpendicularity of our lives; by the grief, fury, passion and love. The alchemy of mind-body change may be discerned within a genuine community of relations which nourish and support its members. Yet the effort to build a healthy ecology of community must first take place within before we can find it in the material world and play a part in extending its influence.

Overall, communities inside centralist societies never work since they are still inside the very social systems which are designed to offer just enough freedom to function. The real purpose of our current societies are to padlock the creative expressions of humanity’s soul and with it compassion, love, empathy, critical thinking, networking and the knowledge that gives rise to objective truth – because it is KNOWN and lived.

In a true community we give each other courage to be all we can be in the face of forces arraigned against us. Courage is multiplied when the effects begin to be seen, when truth is embodied and applied. No more evidence of its efficacy is needed. It is then that right human relations becomes a basic spiritual principle downloaded into everyday simple activities.

Have clusters of communities achieved the kind of equilibrium so many idealists dream about in our distant past? I believe so and I think the time is ripe for such interlinked communities to manifest again, although it may mean several major shocks to Humanity before the correct form of communitarianism can safely be grown.

Whatever community means to you, now is the time to test the water in your own life and to see if there is the potential to forge links with others who share your perspective for practical, psycho-spiritual change that is grounded in reality. It might just provide the material and emotional support which could not only save your life but build a future that is more sustaining than you could ever imagine.

Meantime, Illegitimi non carborundum …

This is my last post for 2015. Thank you for reading and I hope to be back early next Spring. Until then, a classic reminder from Max Ehrmann and some parting music from Henryk Gorecki. Starts slow, let it wash over you and listen right to the end. All of the beauty and pain of human experience is there. As one comment mentioned: “If this doesn’t move you, check your pulse.” ; ) Warm wishes to all.

Reality Change IV: Full Circle

By M.K. Styllinski

“Show me a sane man and I will cure him for you.”

– Carl Gustav Jung


tumblr_mrnp8euXEX1sfie3io1_1280

We are all enmeshed in a vast network of interrelated and interconnected associations. Coming Earth changes might just be the catalyst to “flip the switch”. The question is: who are we and what do we see? The answer may determine where we are on that vast circuit board, and which reality we are likely to inhabit.

The onset of the next cometary bombardment does not necessarily mean a global catastrophe to end them all, but it would take care of the long-term emergence of Pathocracy should enough of us be armed with the knowledge of what has been going on here for centuries. It offers an enormous opportunity for a New World of balance, instigated along natural lines with inbuilt safeguards to prevent the entry of ponerological infections. At the very least, we would be on a level playing field where those that would seek to manipulate and lead by deception will be plainly seen for what they are. As such, we will be able to see make the choice not to share in the rebuilding of a replica of the past but use the knowledge to create a future without psychopathic inculcation.

Getting back to Nature is not some sentimental vision of naturists or the naive whims of failed hippy ideals. There is a wealth of deep wisdom in her cycles of growth and decay; the sensuality of tropical sands and the iridescence of birds of paradise; the ice-fresh air of mountain ranges and cathedral quiet of an English forest. Our hearts can be captured by its majesty, its glory and splendour. But masked by the emerald green foliage and the deep hues of a sunset over the ocean is a veritable ferocity of death and carnage; harsh, painful realities of predation that are as real as they are in the human family. Each exists side by side. We have yet to address what lies beyond the horizon, where metaphysics of the ancients meets the quantum physics of the future. Perhaps the latter is beginning to confirm that reality may be a nested spiral of multiple Universes branching out at the threshold of each thought? What if we are merely inhabiting one infinitesimal expression of what a Universal Mind can do, working by proxy, through flesh, blood, bone and hormones, passion, grief, love and violence, seeking out the choices of what will manifest as creation or destruction, each of us seeking ever sophisticated methods to enhance our chosen pathways?

Like the vast oceans which surround the continents of this planet, the interface of the human mind with our developing concepts of reality remains uncharted territory. Scientists claim they have the answers but the limitations of scientific materialism have never been more apparent. Science has explained so much yet it is now desperately trying to fit a hyper-reductive mentality into a conceptual bottle that simply can’t be done. Quantum theories are lapping at the consciousness of the human family and pushing it to expand. But to do so means to cultivate a new science of perception that experiments with consciousness and consensus that is not simply confined to the test-tube, petri-dish and particle accelerator. What is more, the creative power of science could literally change the material world but instead it is largely used to engineer new and ingenious ways to kill, maim, restrict and repress. Until we accept the idea that our thoughts are vibrantly alive, that what we think and what we say has immense power, then we will forever be looking for answers which cannot go beyond a self-imposed limitation chained to the material world.

In order to have some glimmer of hope in bypassing institutional psychopathy, a radical overhaul of the very idea of human progress must surely take place. Trying to tackle the causes and effects already housed in a manipulated continuum can only ensure a repetition of another generation of children coated with narcissism and the predators that will line up to prey on them. We can describe the legions of deeply-rooted flaws in our economy, in our education system, in governments, welfare systems, science establishments and organised religion; we can talk about the effects and root causes of the widespread psycho-social dislocation that is now so much a part of Western culture. There is no shortage of critiques and diagnoses of what ails our societies and what should happen to move humanity forward, just as there is no shortage of exciting and innovative solutions waiting to emerge phoenix-like from the ashes. But if we do not include ponerology in this equation then these often brilliant and creative flurries of activity that connect so many dots and so many great minds will still be locked into the same diorama of reality and no substantive change will arrive.

The psychopathic mind is the master of human mimicry and adaptation just as it is the exemplar of the Predator in human form. It must capitalise on the ferocity of its primal instinct to trap and feed; to do what is in its nature to do: learn the techniques and methods that will ensure a steady supply of human victims and to maximize the production of bio-chemicals of fear, hatred, anger, arousal, pain, grief, sex, and horror. Yet the desire to destroy and to take pleasure in the full gamut of suffering took on more refined forms as it adapted and mimicked human conscience, where individuals and groups began to learn the value of cooperation and understanding, empathy and accomplishment. This sounded the periodic death-knell for the psychopath and the dissemination of its numbers. Yet, they always returned as darkness always must.

The search for Knowledge and truth gave no refuge to the psychopath who was at home in mediocrity and the limited fantasy of his subjective desires. While normal humans sought to evolve, to develop their conscience and to seek knowledge and perhaps the potential of the soul, the psychopaths sought to devolve and to take us with them; they sought how to prevent humans from knowing by the institution of ignorance in order to prevent the light of awareness ever setting humans free; to wrap our extraordinary capacity for creativity in dark swathes of deception.

Our biggest secret was that we were slaves and we didn’t know it.

We were an experiment.

The binding nature of this deception became complex and multi-faceted woven into myths, religion and ancient wisdom showing only the briefest glimpses of truth before being distorted by the same dark force of flowing through its agents. It knows how to remain in the shadows and to manipulate humanity away from its birth right of higher emotional development and the potential of spiritual evolution. The psychopaths are the shadow side of humanity, the destructive force – the dark face of God. They are those who act at the behest of the ancient mythology of demons and evil spirits said to exist in the hinterlands between the human and spirit world.

Yet, we do have the ability to awaken from such elected victim-hood; to end the cycle of repeated suffering which is personified through so many of the world’s children. They are the symbol of this awakening which can grow to maturity in a full field of awareness or they can be still-born and cold to the touch like the foetus in the trash-can. Or worse still, they can continue to live under the tutelage of the worst predation that is a minority of humanity, as he was eons ago and as he is now.

The biggest victims of the psychopathic assault on the quality of consciousness have been directed at children who, if not struggling to exist, instinctively know that the human manifestations of our world are built on lies. They are educated in the Lie that is Official Culture and its streams of addiction. Children react against it before this reality consumes them, before they become the wardens or servants of a system that is sewn into their very cells.  Sexualized, commoditized and pulled apart by the McWorld and Jihads of our time-loop, they see beneath the veil and are taught to poor scorn on inner-tuition and natural perspicacity. Or they fleetingly see a possibility of their essence while paradoxically immersed in the sensual world, never to catch sight of it again until old age, if at all.

Beautiful isn’t she? And she’s about to let us know. Don’t take it personally. After all, we are just consciousness stuck in bio-chemical space-suits out for a ride …

On June 3, 1965 Edward H. White II became the first American to step outside his spacecraft and let go, effectively setting himself adrift in the zero gravity of space. For 23 minutes White floated and maneuvered himself around the Gemini spacecraft while logging 6500 miles during his orbital stroll. White was attached to the spacecraft by a 25 foot umbilical line and a 23-ft. tether line, both wrapped in gold tape to form one cord. In his right hand White carries a Hand Held Self Maneuvering Unit (HHSMU) which is used to move about the weightless environment of space. The visor of his helmet is gold plated to protect him from the unfiltered rays of the sun.

Many people do intuitively feel that there is something missing in their understanding of the modern world and the reasons for such destruction and suffering that seems beyond all mathematical probability. Surviving and coping with our daily lives is often more than enough for most of us. Yet, amid all this, within whatever circumstance and culture we find ourselves, we must dig deep and long for the possibility of reaching even a tiny glimmer of the Real “I.” And as we do so, we’ll find the buried children, half-eaten by our own inner denials and the choice not to see. WE placed them there, in the same ragged clothes of refutation that we wrap ourselves, snug and warm as they are, provided by a legion of predators that care for us, as we care for animals on their way to the slaughterhouse, vacuum-packed and ready for consumption.  Same process, different level of consciousness.

Andrzej M. Łobaczewski was an extraordinary man. I was lucky enough to meet him in person and aside from having a razor sharp mind I found him to be kind, gentle and full of hope for the future of humankind. Perhaps it is fitting for this pioneer of ponerology to have the last word on what type of new world could manifest as one of our many alternative futures:

“A system thus envisaged would be superior to all its predecessors, being based upon an understanding of the laws of nature operating within individuals and societies, with objective knowledge progressively superseding opinions based upon natural [emotional] responses to phenomena. We should call it a “LOGOCRACY”.

Due to their properties and conformity to the laws of nature and evolution, logocratic systems could guarantee social and international order on a long-term basis. In keeping with their nature, they would then become transformed into more perfect forms, a vague and faraway vision of which may beckon to us in the present.

The author has survived many dangerous situations and become disappointed with many people and institutions. However, the Great Providence has never disappointed him under the most difficult circumstances. This condition suffices to permit him to promise that elaborating a more detailed draft for such a necessary better system will also be possible. …

What is of crucial importance is to fully grasp the importance of the science of Ponerology and how many applications it may have for a future of peace and a humane humanity. This science permits the human mind to understand things that have been, for millennia, unintelligible: the genesis of evil. This understanding could very well bring about a turning point in the history of civilization which, I should add, is presently on the point of self-destruction.

Therefore, my request to you is: Be not shocked with the immense size of the task! Take it as a work to be gradually performed and hope that many other people will come to help and thus progress will be assured.

It seems that, in the natural order of things, that those persons who have suffered the most from psychopaths or bearers of other mental anomalies, will be those called to do this work, to accept the burden. If you do, accept also, ladies and gentlemen, your fate with an open heart and humility, and always with a sense of humor. Cherish assistance from the Universal Mind and know that Great Values often grow from Great Suffering.” 

During a period of history when psychopathy was on the ascendance, when persecution and totalitarianism had its genesis, psychopaths ensured the annihilation of all who opposed them. The Cathars’ knew that beyond the cycles of time and space their faith and purpose had sealed-in their alchemy of applied knowledge despite the presence of organised evil erasing anything of conscience in its path. For those people and many like them down through the centuries, they understood that within the kernel of humanity lay the answer and that the cycle would eventually turn offering a chance for Truth, Love, Goodness and Beauty to grow once more.

Truth can never be extinguished, suppressed or forgotten. The heat of destruction, no matter how intense, can never destroy it. Before long, it will push through, fresh and verdant from the ashes – we will come full circle once again.

In Christianity, the laurel, once sacred to the God Apollo, is said to symbolise the Resurrection of Christ and the triumph of the human soul, or as the Cathar maxim describes it: “Al cap dels sèt cent ans, verdejera lo laurel” –

“After 700 years the laurel will be green once more.”

Let’s raise a glass to that.

Reality Change III: Comets, Cataclysms, Plagues and Pathocracies

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it”

– George Santayana


An historical social science which includes a synthesis of shared data from all academic fields is essential if we are to have any chance of true progress where it matters. Prediction may then possible and applied with scientific rigour so that safeguards can be established for maintaining its long-term integrity. Needless to say, ponerology must feature as an adjunct to ALL disciplines if we are to make any sense of the human condition. We are writing the history of the future with the choices we make in the present.

A professor of ecology and mathematics at the University of Connecticut, USA and author of War and Peace and War: The Life-Cycles of Imperial Nations (Pi Press, 2006) Peter Tirchin is convinced that history can not only be about focusing on the minutiae but as a science that can “develop unifying theories and test them with data generated by history, archaeology and specialized disciplines.” The professor calls this new branch of science: ‘cliodynamics’, from Clio, the muse of history, and dynamics, the study of temporally varying processes and the search for causal mechanisms.” In his July 2008 article for science journal Nature titled: ‘Transforming history into science: Arise ‘cliodynamics’’ He proposes the collection of quantitative data and the creation of explanations which can be empirically tested from the gathered data: “… rather than on instances carefully selected to prove our pet narratives.” Tirchin reiterates the point: “To truly learn from history, we must transform it into a science.”

Turchin dismisses those who believe that unifying theories cannot be found due to the complexity and unpredictability of human societies, stating if that were the case: “… there would be no empirical regularities. Any relationships between important variables would be contingent on time, space and culture.” The professor makes the observation that certain streams of collective violence occur within states across various time periods and cultures yet follow similar pathways. In modern times he reminds us that deaths from asymmetric warfare or terrorism, civil wars and genocides far exceed those between nations. So, what is the common causative factor?

tumblr_nn3zlttWA91sfie3io1_1280

Understanding the pathogenic quality of essential psychopathy is the key if these unifying theories are to be found. The cycles of population growth followed by increased instability which Turchin mentions may also indicate a rise in the dissemination of genes of psychopathy commensurate with certain decreases in ethical and moral safeguards which would otherwise have limited psychological infection. He then proceeds to scratch his head as to what some of these “fundamental principles” could be:

Population growth beyond the means of subsistence leads to declining levels of consumption and popular discontent, but this is not enough to destabilize agrarian societies. Peasant uprisings have little chance of success when the governing élites are unified and the state is strong.

The connection between population dynamics and instability is indirect, mediated by the long-term effects of population growth on social structures. One effect is the increasing number of aspirants for élite positions, resulting in rivalry and factionalism. Another consequence is persistent inflation, which causes a decline in real revenues and a developing fiscal crisis of the state. As these trends intensify, they result in state bankruptcy and a loss of military control; conflict among élite factions; and a combination of élite-mobilized and popular uprisings, leading to the breakdown of central authority. [Emphasis mine]

If psychopaths have honed their predatory skills through millennia it is logical to assume that population growth, instability and economic decline – while they can be explained as purely sociological effects – could also be a product of careful manipulation based on an knowledge embargo. Many historical figures have been cited as the initial sparks for revolution and the emergence of mass movements. They take the blame for all kinds of iniquities. But given the nature of elite control it is more than probable that such secrecy and advanced knowledge was used to not only to predict social instability but actively create the parameters by which they would remain in power in the long-term. They have done this by installing suitably primed leading figures to take action on their behalf, who are often unaware they are being used for a much broader and long-term objective.

The fundamental principles that govern massive upheavals in societies across the world must include the tracking of psychopathy within our societies and the refusal to dilute and dumb down the implications of these discoveries. Current historical studies and related disciplines are far from shedding these obstacles to its development for the very reasons that those responsible for such age-old dynamics do not want to be revealed. Official Culture takes care of that without too much direct interference.

After years developing his cliodynamical model, Turchin is certain that a major collapse is imminent, all based on mathematics. Even if Tirchin has not included ponerology as the major elephant in the room, measuring data on income inequality, the minimum wage, and health he has discovered a repeating pattern throughout our history. It can best be described by a inequality curve where the gap between the rich and poor is increasing leading to unhappiness and discontent which in turn, simmers and boils causing social unrest or revolution. As the super-rich continue to monopolise jobs and specialised work and take advantage of inherited wealth they actually utilise their inherent advantages in ever more ruthless ways. It’s not rocket science but it is probably the first time that it has been shown through mathematics and and the bird’s eye view of history as the template. If we take Turchin’s science on board, along with the Historical Cycles referred to by Verstappen, the hysteroidal cycle posited by Łobaczewski, plus a raft of other commentators saying the same thing from different fields of economics, political science, social science, spirituality and religion, the evidence is now overwhelming that Western culture – in particular the United States – is precariously close to a total meltdown with a global economic crisis but one spoke of a Grand Wheel that is buckling.

While Turchin misses the crucial ingredient of psychopaths who act as chaotic strange attractors causing negative – but perhaps ultimately positive – bifurcations within any local or global systems, there is another final piece in the puzzle may lie in the knowledge of cyclical, catastrophic change that has proven to be at the forefront of ancient mythology and religious instruction. It is here perhaps, that the Pathocrats may have overestimated their omnipotence and the unpredictable nature of cosmological interference. Indeed, humanity has gone so far down the road of acquiescence to entropy (lies and deceit) it seems to me that the only way we can return to a more harmonious state of affairs is through a substantial collective shock. As discussed in the previous post ultimately, this may not come from a new 9/11 or US-NATO induced World War III but from a return of a mix of cosmological, meteorological and large-scale cyclic environmental catastrophes,  the evidence of which is all too clear to see.

The arrival of comets have heralded plagues, famines, earth changes and cyclic cataclysm all of which may have an intriguing connection to the rise of psychopaths within civilisations. Author Laura Knight-Jadczyk’s extraordinary social and historical detective work has explained how a diverse set of factors have allowed the rise in psychopathic genes. She explains how much of the most destructive periods in history may have been directly or indirectly caused by comet and meteor impacts and not only mythologised, but whole religions and beliefs created around them, in order to distract and confuse the populace. Concerning the nature of these epic harbingers of planetary change, she asks: “What was it that so successfully stopped people asking why there is a traditional and deeply ingrained fear of comets in the psyche of humanity? … there are people outside of mainstream academia who ask these questions. But why against all common sense is this subject so widely and systematically ignored, marginalized and ridiculed?” [2]

Why indeed?

Not only could earth changes and the following cometary bombardment have caused great Empires to fall it may explain the 1000 year-old inactivity of the Dark Ages and subsequent famines and plagues. These phenomena correlate exactly with multiple impacts by comet debris and the consequent widespread social upheaval. Earthquakes, floods, fireballs, and anomalous electrical discharges have caused chemicals to be released by high-energy explosions in the atmosphere. There may also be a strong case for the release of comet-borne disease pathogens which would alter the whole nature of man’s place in the cycle of disease and societal decay. 

Similarly, Knight-Jadczyk cites evidence from the publications of eminent scientists Victor Clube and Bill Napier who wrote: “Within the last few years, it has been found that there is a great swarm of cosmic debris circulating in a potentially dangerous orbit, exactly intersecting the Earth’s orbit in June (and November) every few thousand years. More surprisingly perhaps, it has been found that the evidence for these facts was in the past deliberately concealed.” From this data, which is mounting year by year, there appear to be two opposing camps: the American school of asteroid impacts which happen at intervals of millions-of-years with a minimal threat and the British school of science which posits that bombardment of much smaller objects occurs with much greater frequency alongside those million-year intervals. The historical record bears out the latter theory most convincingly.

Rather than one huge meteor or asteroid impact drastically altering the Earth’s environment leading to the demise of the dinosaurs, according to Clube, Napier and others, the evidence appears to show that the radical change was due to an episode of cometary bombardment or “swarms” numbering in their thousands which introduced massive amounts of meteorite dust into the earth’s atmosphere. This created “rains of fire” which, in combination with other earth changes such as earthquakes and super-volcanoes precipitated by such impacts  – led to enormous climate change and the subsequent extinction event.

The “swarm theory” may have appeared many times over our history and literally carved out catastrophic periods of change which have since been misinterpreted and/or covered up. There is a vast amount of hard, scientific evidence that ties up many loose ends and to which we must familiarise ourselves if we wish to extract the implications and build our awareness. Needless to say, I cannot possibly do it justice here. Starting with Clube and Napier’s The Cosmic Winter and The Cosmic Serpent this should be followed up with Knight-Jadczyk’s: The Apocalypse: Comets, Asteroids and Cyclical Catastrophes (2012) in order to place this in its psycho-social context. It is only when one truly studies the subject care of the above trail-blazers does one realise just how much information on comet bombardments, meteorite strikes and anomalous earth changes have been concealed, distorted and ignored by the authorities.

Quoting from the book, regarding the nature of such colossal planetary change it seems the question of survival depends on what to look for and how to prepare:

“… We aren’t talking about a giant asteroid here that is going to create a global wave of firestorm destruction like the movies depict. It’s not ‘Planet X’ or ‘Nibiru.’ It’s not necessarily the ‘End of the World.’ However, it might be somewhat like the Black Death with the loss of half the population of one or more continents, or the great Chicago Fire or Tunguska, or even all of these rolled into one; but all of those events were survivable had the victims been informed and prepared. […]

The very fact that Bill Gates and others have invested in [a] seed bank, in an observatory, suggest strongly to us that they (the rich and powerful) too have this sort of future in mind. The very fact that the weather has become increasingly chaotic, that fireball sightings have increased so dramatically, and even frequent impacts are recorded around the globe, are clues that we are moving into a cosmic dust stream as Clube describes and that such a stream very likely includes some bigger objects – swarms of them – and those ‘in the know’ have taken note and are making preparations to survive. Shouldn’t that knowledge be available to everyone? We think so. … We only have to deal with the science in front of us.” [3]

Augsburger Wunderzeichenbuch, Folio 52 (erschrocklicher Comet, 1300)

And tracking proper science in this field as opposed to the fraudulent is a never-ending task.

The reader may not realise just how frequent and ubiquitous is the historical record of global celestial impact effects from the Bronze Age to Ancient Egypt to the Dark Ages right up through Reformation England and the First World War and the present decade. Comets and their effects may have much more to do with the problem of psychopaths than we presently understand. What is beyond dispute (and thoroughly explored in this blog) is that when we place our trust in pathological authorities we follow a path that is not our own and we are seldom cognizant of this fact until it is too late. Knight-Jadczyk believes it is not a coincidence that large-scale ponerisation of the global population and the rise in earth changes, meteorological and cosmological fluctuations all have a mysterious link.

She poses the question:

“Is there an evolutionary process at work here? Clearly, staggeringly large numbers of people die repeatedly when they place their trust in lies and liars. And nearly as often do the liars in power find themselves in difficult situations as a result of their over-reaching and ignoring facts. Obviously, if evolution is at work here, those individuals – and their offspring who believe lies – are ultimately eliminated from the gene pool. What happens to those who … try to comprehend, understand and the face facts of our reality, remains to be seen. … this comprehension must not deny the outrageous nor attempt to deduce the unprecedented from the precedent.

You see, evolutionarily speaking, psychopaths should not exist. Throughout history it can be seen that human beings have needed to cooperate and care about one another in order to survive and produce a new generation that will carry on the processes of society. Most human dynamics are based on people trying to work out their problems and come to resolutions agreeable to the greatest number or, at the very least, in the interactions between two people. The issue of trust is paramount. Someone who betrays your trust is someone you cannot live or work with. Therefore, psychopaths, who are untrustworthy should have long ago become extinct. But that isn’t the way things are. It appears, if fact, as if psychopathy has increased.

As we can observe throughout history right down to the present day, being the only psychopath in a group of trusting people can be a very good thing for a psychopath. As groups get larger, they can accommodate more psychopaths. It seems that when the number of people carrying the ‘psychopathy gene’ is small enough, those few who carry it can achieve phenomenal breeding success.” [4]

Quoting Glenn Whitman from his article: “Psychopaths as Hawk Strategists,” she puts our present social and geo-political hamster wheel in context:

“If there are few enough psychopaths in the population, then being a psychopath makes sense because you’ll mostly have winning confrontations with nice people. But if there are too many psychopaths, then the gains from taking advantage of nice people will be swamped by the losses from confronting other psychopaths. In equilibrium, you’ll get both psychos and nice folks, with each strategy generating approximately equal returns, and with the precise balance determined by the relative payoffs of different interactions.” [5]

Psychopathy was not always dominant. The suppression and degradation of the Goddess and a male-female gender balance was replaced in favour of a violent God – the God of the psychopath and a male-female infection of psychopathy and narcissism has been allowed to flourish as a direct result of periodic, myth-making effects of cosmic catastrophe visited upon the Earth. What does this mean for modern society? Paraphrasing Clube, Knight-Jadczyk offers this chilling glimpse into the true nature of this “…vast, monolithic conspiracy”:

“Are the elite powers creating a War on Terror as an immediate and constant pressure on the public to get the needed support for stock-piling of nuclear weapons so they will have them to use on asteroids? You know, a benevolent lie with a million plus Iraqis being sacrificed to sustain it.” Or, the more likely scenario: “Are the powers that be using the threat of asteroids on lawmakers to get them to agree to backing the phony War on Terror in order to obtain and retain the support of the masses when what they are really doing is just planning a fascist takeover of the world?” [6]

It may be a combination of both.

Our paleolithic ancestors were designed for Ice Age environment. We may yet be returning to their climate…as social, environmental and psycho-spiritual destinies collide …

Whatever the truth, the implications of periodic psychopathy appearing at the juncture prior to and after possible extinction events has a special place in catastrophism and the recording of history. What also appears to be the case as we have discovered in various guises throughout this series, is that the re-writing and revision of history takes place rather like a copy and paste technique to maintain the status quo of control. Constant revision is ongoing and in ways that boggle the mind. That is after all, the Establishments raison d’etre: to keep the mass mind cut off from true knowledge and thus true freedom and creativity – which means the demise of their power.

Logician and sociologist Alexander Zinoviev and Mathematician Anatoly Formenko have both written extensively on the falsification of history due to cataclysmic disruption and an acute awareness of these periods of upheaval that were known by certain elites of different eras. With such vital knowledge withheld by a continuum of pathocratic perception desiring complete control, how would this manifest down through the generations? Although missing the inclusion of periods of social decay and stasis due to ponerology and cataclysmic change in their conclusions, they remain shocking nonetheless. Zinoviev writes in the preface to Formenko’s History: Fiction or Science:

“… what A.T. Formenko and his colleagues had learn[ed] over the course of their research was the fact that the entire history of humanity up until the XVII century is a forgery of global proportions … a falsification as deliberate as it is universal. … The first global falsification of history as discovered and brilliantly related by Formenko was based on an erroneous temporal and spatial coordinate system of chronological events …” [7]

Rather than any problem with the accuracy of data in the fields of archaeology, geology and paleontology, it is what official culture “scribes” omit in their studies and how it is re-framed and merged into a seemingly coherent ideological framework that serves to wholly distort the history of humankind. Zinoviev explains that their strength lies in: “the ability to misrepresent historical events while giving correct temporal and spatial coordinates and representing individual facts veraciously and in full detail. The actual falsification is achieved via the selection of facts, their combination and interpretation, as well as the context of ideological conceptions, propagandist texts that they are immersed into …” [8]

Zinoviev also believes that distorted versions of history serve to legitimise authority and cement generational control as each new social upheaval takes place. These fractures in the socio-cultural milieu of the time are linked to major depopulation events where the falsification of history which Formenko identified “occurred at the end of 300 years of disaster piled on disaster beginning with the decimation of the population of Europe by the Black Death.” [9]

How much more of our history has been padlocked away as part of Official Culture? See also: The Hidden History of the Human Race: The Condensed Edition of “Forbidden Archeology”

Knight-Jadczyk came to the same conclusions as Zinoviev and Formenko who each dealt with different periods of history. She thought it was “just an accumulation of innocent errors” before she began to fit the pieces of the puzzle together, dove-tailing perfectly into her work on the widespread presence of counter-Intelligence operations – a form of cosmic CoIntelpro – and bringing to light the science of Łobaczewski’s ponerology. We can see that this CoIntelpro is exactly what is taking place in the modern world just as it has been doing in centuries past. It is a cloaking of history itself with bogus organisations and highly sophisticated propaganda techniques used to maintain control of the mass mind.

She states in relation to Formenko’s work:

“… the temporal and spatial parameters of much later times were imposed on the stories of the more distant past, but that does not entirely invalidate those stories; it just means that things were re-established, and what was familiar to the ‘trained specialists’ was utilized to give the new view of the past a more realistic ‘feel’.” One can’t help recalling George Orwell’s 1984 in this context and the importance of memory control in the population at large: “All that was needed was an unending series of victories over your own memory. ‘Reality control,’ they called it … ‘double-think,…” [10]

Such a falsification of the catastrophic nature of our past and the role that psychopaths play within in this historical drama cannot be understated. It is a cover up of vast proportions that continues to this day resulting in a global population that is unaware of both periodic cycles of catastrophism and the psychopathic threat that takes advantage of psycho-social weaknesses to impose tight controls on conscience and consciousness. As author Carlos Ruiz Zafon said in a recent interview, building on Santayana’s observation at the top of this page: “We are what we remember and the less we remember, the less we are. The past is being erased from modern conscience. If we don’t know where we are coming from, it’s hard to know where we are going.” [11]

And it is precisely those forms of paramoral, paralogical and conversive discourse which makes up the diet of media propaganda; a pervasive double-think which is employed by our Establishment puppets, their strings pulled by essential psychopaths, in turn driven by ancient occult beliefs and a psycho-biological deviancy. It is nothing less than the erasure of conscience in normal humanity so that ponerogenesis may proceed accordingly.

This not only brings us full circle to the introduction and the explication of the National Security State by Richard M. Dolan, but forces us to conceive more questions regarding the roots of cataclysm and military-occult mind control.  Do so-called “fringe” subjects such as ufology, hyper-dimensional physics and ultra-terrestrial influence also play a part?  Does the true history of the human race display a spider’s web of manipulation so vast that we are forced to confront the seeming impossibility of such an ancient cover that spans centuries?

Indeed, if we look deep enough into this abyss we may come away with the disturbing realisation that this powerful minority is not necessarily at the top of the energic food chain. There’s a thought.  But maybe that’s for another time …

Alongside these cataclysmic upheavals is the origin of how psychopathic genes multiply and achieve dominance. Synthesising a raft of scientific literature on the subject Knight-Jadczyk makes the case for the clash of the advanced culture of Cro-Magnon and Neanderthal man having a lot to do with our present mess. It seems that Cro-Magnon man could be the ancient ancestors of ordinary human beings whilst Neanderthal man are very likely the prehistoric equivalent and genesis of the modern psychopath. There is no single authoritarian or “psychopath gene,” but a wide range of diversified Anti-Social Personality disorders which may merge given the right set of environmental, social and genetic circumstances.

Speculation as to what may have happened all those thousands of years ago and cross referenced with other advances in social science offers a compelling theory. What is important in terms of science and especially the doctrine of evolution and the materialism today, is that while there is a case for being descended from the apes – it may not be true for everyone. Yet, if it is true and there were many mutations occurring due to cometary impacts and interbreeding between Cro-Magnon and Neanderthal man then this would set the seal for the emergence of psychopathic genes in modern societies given the correct environmental circumstances.

I urge the reader to delve further into these subjects to evaluate the science and scholarship of the authors above and discover the rich details of possibilities within their pages.

Reality Change II: “Hope for the best, Prepare for the Worst.”

“Federal military commanders have the authority, in extraordinary emergency circumstances where prior authorization by the President is impossible and duly constituted local authorities are unable to control the situation, to engage temporarily in activities that are necessary to quell large-scale, unexpected civil disturbances.”

– ‘Defense Support of Civilian Law Enforcement Agencies’

***

“Don’t trust the banks. Most are bankrupt. Don’t put your gold and silver coins in the safe deposit box. Keep them at home and keep them secret. Don’t keep more cash in the bank than is necessary to cover about a month’s worth of bills. This is a flashing red alert. Many tens of thousands of people who have their trust in the government system (U.S. currency) are headed dead ahead into impoverishment.”

– Bob Livingston, Personal Liberty Digest


Not a pretty picture.

The above nebulous language introduced in recently amended regulations in the US code of military operations on domestic soil conveniently skipped over what these “activities” would be in order to quell civil disturbances. What it does do is give the US military carte blanche to do as they please in such a scenario which won’t exactly reassure American citizens that they are safe. Indeed, it suggests that the only “unexpected” thing here is just what the US military has planned in the face of the inevitable break down in social “order.” And when we factor in all kinds of natural disasters on the horizon you can understand why so many folks are leaving cities with high density populations and even leaving the country completely.

Not all of the disaster events in the last post will occur but since the main points on this list was first compiled in 2011, we are already seeing some of these scenarios playing out. And who knows? They may all arrive within a year… It really is a case of “Hope for the best and prepare for the worst,” as some bright spark once said …

Returning to our Machiavellian friend and insider Zbigniew Brzezinski, this man has had his finger on the pulse between pathocrat and the global public for several decades. Driven by an irrational and all-consuming hatred of Russia, Brzezinski is a master tactician and highly astute at deciphering the many possible futures currently jostling for supremacy.  If he is worried about the scope and depth of changes taking place, then you can be fairly certain he’ll telegraph his concerns to the pathocratic faithful so that contingencies can be updated.

In recent years, he has let his concerns be heard above and beyond the usual Boys Clubs, participating in television, radio and public forums for maximum exposure. One of his worries that Brzezinski revealed during a speech in Poland in 2008 was that it had become: “increasingly difficult to suppress” and control the: “persistent and highly motivated populist resistance of politically awakened and historically resentful peoples.” (The latter of which he  presumably belongs).

In other words, the alternative media and its internet platform is proving to be a problem for continuing mass propaganda.

Indeed, the public dismissal of an obvious PSYOPS operation to accuse Syria’s President Assad of using chemical weapons on his own people was a PR disaster. Although much of the public may not have seen how blatant this manipulation surely was, their appetite for war was unequivocal – and they let their elected MPs and Congressman know it in unprecedented numbers. If politicians wanted to remain in power they had to vote accordingly offering a very rare glimpse of democracy in action.

Similar examples of a “global political awakening” is not something that the Elite would like to see. To some degree there is a lack of confidence in sectors of insider control that they can pull off the Grand Plan of managing the global population as they would like. To say that they are all worried would perhaps be overstating the issue. But there is a lot of friction between the factions, so to say, which is compounded by the increasing pressure coming at them from all sides.

It’s tough at the top of psychopathic pile …

During a 2010 Council on Foreign Relations speech in Montreal, Brzezinski stated that:

“the major world powers, new and old, also face a novel reality: while the lethality of their military might is greater than ever, their capacity to impose control over the politically awakened masses of the world is at a historic low. To put it bluntly: in earlier times, it was easier to control one million people than to physically kill one million people; today, it is infinitely easier to kill one million people than to control one million people…”

This may be interpreted as a warning to the Establishment to “Get your act together and stay on course or you will lose the game.” They must do what needs to be done without shirking their responsibilities to the visions of World Order – whatever that takes. And the stakes are about to get considerably higher.

If there is indeed a breakaway part of a global government that means to remain at the top of the pile when the list of changes begin to arrive, most wholly manipulated to occur, others entirely out of their control, then it stands to reason that they have certain provisions and preparations already in place. Whilst this is an apotheosis of an old occult plan for dominance shining brightly at the capstone of their distorted visions, at the lower tiers it is simply a push to protect what they consider is theirs. The billionaire banksters obviously want to hold on to their lion’s share if privy to serious economic or even cataclysmic predictions and they’ll do anything to keep the gravy-train membership hermetically sealed.

The imminent collapse of the economic structure is inevitable and this alone is sufficient reason for the Establishment to get their houses in order far in advance. Creaming off the last few billions from a bankrupt financial system and ransacking vulnerable nations for resources continues, meantime. Government officials, dynastic families and all members of the 0.0001% are happily expecting to emerge from their hi-tec bunkers in order to pick up where they left off. This formula isn’t new. Bankers and weapons manufacturers made enormous amounts of money from stimulating World War I and II. The pivotal year of 1947 saw the genesis of all the major institutions of today which radiated from the inspirational hub of the United Nations, an institution and its affiliated organisations and which characterise the present neo-liberal cartelism which has wrought havoc across the globe.

While the long sought after inversion of the Golden Age is seen as a definite prize, this minority is nothing if not patient since this is the kind of gradualism which has spanned many generations. It is why most of the drip-down technological know-how and hijacked belief systems have been put to work to create their particular brand of Orwellian/Huxleyian globalisation, the iconic emblems of which are SMART growth and Sustainable Development – the blueprint for a future infrastructure where control will, they hope, seal in the creative energy of normal humanity forever.

One in two Americans believe that their government is taking the country in the wrong direction, half of whom think that this will require armed revolution. Nationwide protests, hunger strikes and demonstrations are now common place in the US with more than 4 out of 5 people facing poverty and unemployment according to a October 19, 2013 Associated Press data survey. The Posse Comitatus law states that the US military cannot be used on domestic soil against American civilians under any circumstances. Yet, the militarisation of law enforcement is all but complete, where police and the US Army work hand in hand accelerating the clear devolution into Police State strictures. The Police uniforms and weapons are being standardized across all American states with SWAT teams exceeding the remit on their manufactured drug wars, to be used in tactical operations against the public, from poker games to off grid businesses and peaceful demonstrations. With literally hundreds of unconstitutional raids on private property, an epidemic of shootings and police brutality and the NDAA law which permits indefinite detention of US citizens without trial – the stage is set for major civil conflict.

Operation Jade Helm is one large scale military drill preparing for eventual martial law.

The Obama administration is pushing ahead to cut back on the US military in order to strengthen and transform the police and related federal agencies into a domestic army. This is, of course, to protect the elite power structures and curtail normal people’s freedoms but will be sold as something quite different to the clueless. However, many Americans from across the political spectrum are beginning to wake up. Order is the principle that must be established by the authorities, and conformity to AUTHORITY is hard-wired into the majority of the population. To that end, revolution and social unrest is ideal as it plays straight into the hands of the Establishment which require violence and mayhem to justify their clamp-down and give back their brand of World State order. After all, when the republic has been comprehensively trashed, its infrastructure down, no fuel, no food, mass causalities and martial law – even civil war – there will come a time when the public will clamour for normality. And the authorities will give it to them.The only problem is it will anything but normal and that will be the trap that finishes American for good.

#That is, assuming that the Powers that Be remain in control…

Meantime, it has reached the stage whereby a large section of the public will not go willingly to the next stage of technocracy and it is probable that a false flag event on the scale of 9/11 may well be initiated should the level of resistance prove immovable. Alternatively, martial law will arrive care of some geo-engineering on domestic soil. Natural disasters could also serve as a surprise element for opportunism. Whatever the timeline of lock-down, you can be sure it is coming.

For example, over the past few years US federal agencies have been stockpiling large amounts of ammunition and emergency hardware:

  • In 20012, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) ordered 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition, and 2700 armoured personnel carriers. (This the FBI’s order for 100 million rounds of hollow-point bullets which are ordinarily illegal in warfare due to the unpleasant fact they expand to more than 3 times their original size on impact).
  • $14.2 million for MREs and heater meals and 22 million pouches of emergency water, to be delivered to Region III by October 1st. An additional order of $13.6 million worth of MRE’s and heater meals will be delivered to Austin by October 1st.
  • In 2012, Social Security Administration requested a quote for 174,000 rounds of “.357 Sig 125 grain bonded jacketed hollow point pistol ammunition.” [Request for Quote for ammunition Solicitation Number: SSA-RFQ-12-1851, http://www.fob.gov/%5D
  • The Obama administration is also training 386,000 foreign troops in FEMA Region 3. (Washington DC, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia).

 policeSafe in their hands?

riot_police-620x4121Welcome to the “Ministry of Truth”

The IRS and the National Weather Service has also acquired millions of rounds of ammunition and the frequency of military, DHS, NORTHCOM and FEMA drills have exponentially increased over the last five years. This includes Blackhawk helicopters flying across many major cities such as Houston, Los Angeles and Miami. [Source: http://www.fbo.gov/%5D

It may all be a reasonable dispersal of ammunition for Federal Authorities when you look at allocation records. Buying in bulk also means you save money. Yet the DHS order amounts to about five cartridges for every person in the United States. As the Belfast Chronicle mentioned in their report of January 2011, at the the height of the Iraq War the Army was expending less than 6 million rounds a month which gives you some idea of the level of expenditure.

That’s investment on the scale of a domestic war inside America.

While these may at least be considered indicative of America’s gun culture – like it or loathe it – there seems to be a remarkable naivety on the part of apologists who seem to forget: context is everything.

In fact, the introduction of foreign and UN troops into America has been an ongoing process of acclimatisation for two decades. The release of State Department Publication 7277: ‘Freedom From War – The United States Program, for General and Complete Disarmament in a Peaceful World’ is a blueprint for the “harmonisation” of US, Russian forces and European forces under a United Nations umbrella. Security exchange programs have also been active in the US with emphasis on quelling civil unrest. This includes US and Canadian authorities who signed a 2008 agreement that gives the green light for using each others armies in the event of an “emergency.” Foreign troops from Mexico, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom were involved in the National Level Exercise 2009 (NLE 09) July 27 – July 31, 2009 which focussed on: “terrorism prevention and protection.”

Investigative journalists Ben Swann and Joshua Cook recently reported on the curious training exercise of IRS agents in their September 2013 article entitled : “IRS Needs AR-15′s For ‘Standoff Capabilities’?” IRS agents are receiving tactical training in the use of AR-15 military rifles with 30 round magazines for “standoff capability.” The IRS were decidedly unhelpful in answering questions regarding reasons for their envisaged warfare. Similarly, why has the Department of Education also got in on the act and purchased “27 Remington Brand Model 870 police 12-gauge shotguns”? A new zero tolerance on student behaviour perhaps?

This begs the obvious question: when is all this fire power going to be used and against whom? The terrorists? It seems the U.S. public is now the designated terrorist, which means the threat is not from an Al-Qaeda/ISIL cell (unless its a fabricated one, care of the FBI) but largely from the US government and its federal agencies.

Time to get out of dodge? The next step could be to join off-grid communities and supportive networks of like-minded people.


“Most preppers are just regular folks with a self-reliant mindset.”

– Daisy Luther, Natural Blaze


Seeing the Writing on the Wall…

American preppers have seen the writing on the wall for some time. While you might not agree with all of their political views, they cannot be criticised for being complacent. Indeed, rather than hunkering down and waiting for the FBI to come knocking at your to check if you “have your papers pleeze…” you might consider joining an increasing number of Americans who have renounced their citizenship to seek a new life in Latin America or Europe.

It matters little whether it comes from the economy, from demented religious and military factions and or environmental disasters of a considerable variety, it is a foregone conclusion that a mix of socio-economic and environmental disaster is looming for America.

How you meet these events will depend on what how you perceive reality and thus what you do now.

If you can’t move away from what used to be the USA, best get your house in order and establish networks with groups of friends that you trust implicitly. Parallel to that, there are a huge number of resources available to build your knowledge base concerning the philosophy and practice of living “off-grid” and/or coping in an urban environment under infrastructure breakdown. *

The reader might find some of the following information by the American Preppers Network useful. You don’t have to join these communities and meet ups, but it may give you the skills and confidence to begin to start your own communities more aligned to your personal life philosophy/religion.

Either way, time to get educated!

Path-of-the-Prepper3The 5 Phase Path of the Prepper – 2009 American Preppers Network

Phase 1:

We recognize a new area that we have not previously explored and seek out those who are experienced in this area and are willing to share and Mentor.

Phase 2: 

We study, along with other learners, what the Mentor presents.  Then we practice these new skills along with others through online exchange via blogs, forums, podcasts and videos.

Phase 3:

We begin adapting our lives to accommodate our new found skill through acquiring new items, changing our surroundings or by stocking up.  We begin sharing this information with others who are on this journey with us.

Phase 4:

Through this process we are able to master an area and begin to consider ourselves an expert in this area.

Phase 5: 

We become mentors to others who are now learning this skill, while deferring to our Mentors and continuing to learn.  We continue to repeat the cycle by continuing to learn new skills.

The Path of the Prepper defines our steps while the Five Principles of Preparedness defines our goals.
We all walk the Path of the Prepper and in doing so are able to increase our own knowledge and expertise while sharing our expertise with others.

“Any attempt to reconnect to the land in the rich world should be celebrated, but we must not overlook the struggles faced by poor rural communities trying to carve out a land-based living at the edges of industrialised capitalism. For the rich to go back to the land is important. Equally important is to enable the poor to stay on the land and make a decent living.”

Steffen Böhm, Times Higher Education review of ‘Ecovillages: Lessons for Sustainable Community,’ by Karen T. Litfin.


Of course, you might say that many of these eco-village projects and urban survival communities are just rich, upper middle class people who can afford to opt out and indulge their utopian whims. Apart from the fact that this doesn’t seem to be true in the vast majority of cases, (at least, from my own exeperience) it would also entirely miss the point of what lies ahead for ALL our futures.

The above quote concerning less industrialised countries with rural communities attempting to survive in often harsh environments is accurate. But what we are talking about here are events of such magnitude which will see the demise of the dominant economic architecture which created and sustained the reality of those very same poverty-stricken communities. These changes are going to effect everyone regardless of class, race and economic status. Some will fair better than others and for some it will be terminal. We have already seen huge environmental and socio-political upheavals these past few years and if you live in Iraq or Syria it must feel like the hounds of hell have been let lose. (The bourgeois “democratic” comfort of the West isn’t going to be any protection either I’m afraid).

But those with knowledge of what is to come – not just in terms of geopolitics but environmental changes – will be in a strategic position to help themselves and thus help others. Race and class prejudice so dominant in our Official Culture will likely fade in the face of these disasters. Shock has a way of stripping away petty concerns and cultural programming as well as bringing out the best as well as the worst of humanity. This should not automatically mean that any genuine initiative, project or template for viable alternatives should be discarded due to politically correct hand wringing. After all, the “struggles faced by poor rural communities trying to carve out a land-based living at the edges of industrialised capitalism” may temporarily become the norm in so-called developed nations of the West.

The cynical dismissal of eco-villages and off-grid communities is a product of the same Establishment propaganda which does not want to see anybody opt out of the present system and the plans they have for us after these destructive changes. With populations seeking to be truly sovereign and armed with a psycho-spiritual defence – the dominance of psychopaths and their control system would be at an end. That does not mean we fall for the myriad dead-end scenarios as discussed in previous posts on SMART society and Sustainable Development. But we extract the ancient truths which lie within these hijacked principles and take back our world.

With new creative support systems in place it may be just enough to stave off the lowest human instincts of exclusive self-preservation in favour of the more logical approach toward group cooperation and adaptation. The last thing that communities need is to come together due to fear and an exclusively survivalist mind-set, which may seem like a contradiction. While surviving IS a factor, inherent in the anticipation of breakdown is the promise of a renaissance in the very notion of community, economics and society.

No one knows how this is going to play out but we can sure as hell welcome that which promotes pragmatic cohesion and support in the face of massive change.

So, a choice opens up for all of us, one of which is to leave the city and try to form or join small communities which will be psychologically and practically prepared for the changes that will arrive. The time is now to gain the knowledge base required to contribute something useful when you do find yourself in that situation. And if you are in America it is 99.9% certain that you will be dramatically effected in one way or another. Again, there is much more at stake than making sure you have a pantry full of canned meat or ten barrels of fuel for your generator.

If you are running on fear and anticipation then it is far more likely that the reality that you will experience will be exactly that.

There’s room to be of service to others during this time, by sharing information, being on hand to support each other whilst taking a pragmatic approach to the question of re-location and personal responsibility. You’ll find that the energy disbursed from such activities will come back to you three-fold. If it is true that who you are and what you see will determine how we interact with reality, then it also means that we may be able to mitigate the negative effects which will arrive at all of our doorsteps. Granted, it’s certainly going to be a balancing act with many unexpected variables. But if we get caught up in an undue focus on strictly material concerns, then the effects of a strictly material focus is what we will receive.

Reality is funny like that.

In summary, I’d like to finish this post by including the author of The Art of Urban Survival Stefan Verstappen, and his superb Paradise Stolen” video series which gives us a concise evaluation of what we have already lost from the psychopath’s imposition of their reality and what we might gain from establishing sustainable and creative communities. In combination with Verstappen’s information concerning defence against predatory behaviour and his video Defense Against the Psychopath (Full length Version) and his other insights on community and survival, he offers a realistic formula to face the future with confidence.

You might also want to visit Sott.net who also feature Verstappen’s work along with a host of other contributors to what is a  truly multidisciplinary approach to psychopathy, metaphysics, cosmology, science and geopolitics.

Reality Change I: 16 ignition points

 By M.K. Styllinski

 “Not everything that is faced can be changed; but nothing can be changed until it is faced.”

– James Baldwin


Unless you have been living in a small cave in the mountains for the last few decades (and that may still be an option) you have probably noticed that we are moving through extremely tumultuous times. Having successfully traversed the Grand Hype and misinterpretations of the 2012 Mayan Prophecy which did not say the world would end but indicate massive change – humanity is still here. Nonetheless, it seems we are in for some truly momentous events. In fact, there is a host of global indicators which, in isolation, or as a non-linear combination, could signal an epic meltdown in the fortunes of humanity whilst offering the possibility of a completely new world.

Do not take the following synopsis as inevitable and that we should all order a bulk supply of dehydrated chicken noodles and chlorinated water tablets, pack our bug bags and find our respective caves … Only that one, or several of these events have an extremely high probability of occurring over the next 2 -10 years. Our history appears to be one long bid to cover up the reality that this planet goes through cycles of catastrophic upheaval – a “reset” if you will. Those that learned to read the signs and took sensible measures to avoid unnecessary future hardship in the face of these dramatic environmental and infrastructure changes were the ones that survived. That means psychological as well as practical awareness.

In lieu of what has gone before in this series, I hope this list helps by placing the events in context, and offers an easy summary of what we are all facing. A selection of links is included under each heading which are not definitive, merely relevant sources for further reading.

Above all: DONT PANIC!

“It seems that, in a world where the people cannot or will not, rise up against psychopathy in power, the Cosmos will do it for them, and take them out as well for their silence and their weakness. The bottom line is, nobody and no event is going to “save” anyone. It is only human beings, individually and collectively, who have the power to BE salvation.” Laura Knight-Jadczyk

“Diverse animals across the globe are slipping away and dying as Earth enters its sixth mass extinction, a new study finds.  Over the last century, species of vertebrates are dying out up to 114 times faster than they would have without human activity, said the researchers, who used the most conservative estimates to assess extinction rates.

That means the number of species that went extinct in the past 100 years would have taken 11,400 years to go extinct under natural extinction rates, the researchers said.  Much of the extinction is due to human activities that lead to pollution, habitat loss, the introduction of invasive species and increased carbon emissions that drive climate change and ocean acidification, the researchers said.

“Our activities are causing a massive loss of species that has no precedent in the history of humanity and few precedents in the history of life on Earth,” said lead researcher Gerardo Ceballos, a professor of conservation ecology at the National Autonomous University of Mexico and a visiting professor at Stanford University.”

From around 2015 -2025 we have the following disaster scenarios to consider, many of which are extremely high on the probability scale:

1. Nuclear Smart bomb, false flag attack on a U.S. City or on sea to create war with Iran.

[Source 1] | [Source 2 | [Source 3] | [Source 4] | [Source 5]  


“The war on Iran was viewed as part of a succession of military operations.  According to (former) NATO Commander General Wesley Clark, the Pentagon’s military road-map consisted of a sequence of countries: “[The] Five-year campaign plan [includes]… a total of seven countries, beginning with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Iran, Somalia and Sudan.”  In “Winning Modern Wars” (page 130)

Clark states the following:

‘As I went back through the Pentagon in November 2001, one of the senior military staff officers had time for a chat. Yes, we were still on track for going against Iraq, he said. But there was more. This was being discussed as part of a five-year campaign plan, he said, and there were a total of seven countries, beginning with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Iran, Somalia and Sudan.’ (See Secret 2001 Pentagon Plan to Attack Lebanon, Global Research, July 23, 2006)

Israel is integrated into the “war plan for major combat operations” against Iran formulated in 2006 by US Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM). In the context of large scale military operations, an uncoordinated unilateral military action by one coalition partner, namely Israel, is from a military and strategic point almost an impossibility. Israel is a de facto member of NATO. Any action by Israel would require a “green light” from Washington.

An attack by Israel could, however, be used as “the trigger mechanism” which would unleash an all out war against Iran, as well retaliation by Iran directed against Israel.

In this regard, there are indications that Washington might envisage the option of an initial (US backed) attack by Israel  rather than an outright US-led military operation directed against Iran. The Israeli attack –although led in close liaison with the Pentagon and NATO– would be presented to public opinion as a unilateral decision by Tel Aviv. It would then be used by Washington to justify, in the eyes of World opinion, a military intervention of the US and NATO with a view to “defending Israel”, rather than attacking Iran. Under existing military cooperation agreements, both the US and NATO would be “obligated” to “defend Israel” against Iran and Syria.”

Cyberterrorists Attack on Critical Infrastructure Could Be Imminent

“Public Intelligence had said, “The exercise will occur amidst a growing climate of panic in Washington regarding the state of U.S. cybersecurity.” That climate includes former FBI cybersecurity guru Shawn Henry saying American is losing the cyberwar and China has hacked every major US company. Interestingly enough, the cyberattack NLE seemed to fall in line with a previous DHS warning that hacktivists may point, click, and destroy industrial control systems. The Wall Street Journal reported even the NSA has warned that “Anonymous could have the ability within the next year or two to bring about a limited power outage through a cyberattack.” Perhaps you recall when New York City went dark from a simulated cyberattack on the power grid? This week, DHS demonstrated another cyberattack“to help sway lawmakers to pass a cyber bill.”

“Hacking attacks that destroy rather than steal data or that manipulate equipment are far more prevalent than widely believed, according to a survey of critical infrastructure organizations throughout North and South America.

The poll by the Organization of American States, released on Tuesday, found that 40 percent of respondents had battled attempts to shut down their computer networks, 44 percent had dealt with bids to delete files and 54 percent had encountered “attempts to manipulate” their equipment through a control system.

Those figures are all the more remarkable because only 60 percent of the 575 respondents said they had detected any attempts to steal data, long considered the predominant hacking goal.”

3. Large-scale cyber network-infrastructure failure due to massive cosmic EM pulse and / or anomalous solar flare activity

[Source 1] | [Source 2] | [Source 3] | [Source 4] | [Source 5] (See: Solar Flares and Gamma rays below)


Because of the ubiquitous dependence of U.S. society on the electrical power system,its vulnerability to an EMP attack, coupledwith the EMP’s particular damage mechanisms, creates the possibility of long-term, catastrophic consequences. The implicit invitation to take advantage of this vulnerability, when coupled with increasing proliferation of nuclear weapons and their delivery systems, is a serious concern. A single EMP attack may seriously degrade or shut down a large part of the electric power grid in the geographic area of EMP exposure effectively instantaneously. There is also a possibility offunctional collapse of grids beyond the exposed area, as electrical effects propagate from one region to another.

The time required for full recovery of service would depend on both the disruption and damage to the electrical power infrastructure and to other national infrastructures. Larger affected areas and stronger EMP field strengths will prolong the time to recover. Some critical electrical power infrastructure components are no longer manufactured in the United States, and their acquisition ordinarily requires up to a year of lead time in routine circumstances. Damage to or loss of these components could leave significant parts of the electrical infrastructure out of service for periods measured in months to a year or more. […]

“Should significant parts of the electrical power infra-structure be lost for any substantial period of time, the Commission believes that the consequences are likely to be catastrophic, and many people may ultimately die for lack of the basic elements necessary to sustain life in dense urban and suburban communities. In fact, the Commission is deeply concerned that such impacts are likely in the event of an EMP attack unless practical steps are taken to provide protection for critical elements of the electric system and for rapid restoration of electric power, particularly to essential services. The recovery plans for the individual infrastructures currently in place essentially assume, at worst, limited upsets to the other infrastructures that are important to their operation. Such plans may be of little or no value in the wake of an EMP attack because of its long-duration effects on all infrastructures that rely on electricity or electronics.”

“The FBI is responsible for more terrorism plots in the United States. More than al Qaeda, more than al Shabaab, more than the Islamic State, more than all of them combined.”

“I’ve spent years pouring through the case files of terrorism prosecutions in the United States, and I’ve come to the conclusion that the FBI is much better at creating terrorists than it is at catching terrorists.” Trevor Aaronson, author of Terror Factory – WATCH VIDEO

“As early as 2007, the stage was being set for the regional genocide now unfolding from Syria and Lebanon along the Mediterranean to northern Iraq. The “sudden” appearance of the Islamic State of Syria and Iraq, otherwise known as ISIS, betrays years of its rise and the central part it played in Western-backed violence seeking to overthrow the government of Syria starting in 2011 amid the cover of the so-called “Arab Spring.” While the “Free Syrian Army” brand was created and used to obfuscate the hardcore, sectarian extremism that pervaded mercenary forces raised against Damascus, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had warned starting in 2011 that it was neither a pro-democratic uprising, nor a moderate, secular rebellion – but rather hordes of foreign-backed terrorists with ties to Al Qaeda.”Anthony Cartalucci, ISIS: Region-wide Genocide Portended in 2007 Now Fully Realized

***

“That the FBI and Australian authorities are coordinating staged security operations in tandem on opposite ends of the globe to terrify their respective populations into line behind an impending war with Syria suggests a new “Operation Northwoods” of sorts is already being executed. Staged executions on cue by ISIS in the Middle East of US and British citizens at perfectly timed junctures of the West’s attempt to sell intervention both at home and abroad also reek of staged mayhem for the sole purpose of provoking war. Could grander and ultimately more tragic mayhem be in store? As ABC News’ article on Operation Northwoods suggests, there is no line Western special interests will hesitate to cross.

With the West attempting to claim ISIS now has a “global” reach, the US and its partners’ attempts to obfuscate the very obvious state-sponsorship it is receiving will become exponentially more difficult. That the FBI is admittedly stringing along easily manipulated, malevolent patsies who at any time could be handed real weapons and sent on shooting sprees and/or bombings, Americans, Europeans, and Australians would be foolish to conclude that their real enemy resides somewhere in Syria and not right beside them at home, upon the very seats of Western power.”

5. Massive increase in warfare in the Middle East via the US-NATO-Israel financed proxy armies of Al-Qaeda/ISIL leading to conflict with emerging super powers of Russia, China, Iran, etc.

“Details leaking out suggest that ISIS and the major military ‘surge’ in Iraq – and less so in neighboring Syria – is being shaped and controlled out of Langley, Virginia, and other CIA and Pentagon outposts as the next stage in spreading chaos in the world’s second-largest oil state, Iraq, as well as weakening the recent Syrian stabilization efforts.  […]

“Key members of ISIS, it now emerges, were trained by US CIA and Special Forces command at a secret camp in Jordan in 2012, according to informed Jordanian officials. The US, Turkish and Jordanian intelligence were running a training base for the Syrian rebels in the Jordanian town of Safawi in the country’s northern desert region, conveniently near the borders to both Syria and Iraq. Saudi Arabia and Qatar, the two Gulf monarchies most involved in funding the war against Syria’s Assad, financed the Jordan ISIS training.” […]

“According to a November, 2013 report in The Wall Street Journal, Emir Umar or Batrashvili as you prefer, has made the wars in Syria and Iraq “into a geopolitical struggle between the US and Russia.” That has been the objective of leading neo-conservatives in the CIA, Pentagon and State Department all along. The CIA transported hundreds of Mujahideen Saudis and other foreign veterans of the 1980s Afghan war against the Soviets in Afghanistan into Chechnya to disrupt the struggling Russia in the early 1990s, particularly to sabotage the Russian oil pipeline running directly from Baku on the Caspian Sea into Russia. James Baker III and his friends in Anglo-American Big Oil had other plans. It was called the BTC pipeline, owned by a BP-US oil consortium and running through Tbilisi into NATO-member Turkey, free of Russian territory.” […]

“According to the late Sir Fred Hoyle and Chandra Wickramasinghe of the University of Wales at Cardiff, viruses can be distributed throughout space by dust in the debris stream of comets. Then as Earth passes though the stream, the dust and viruses load our atmosphere, where they can stay suspended for years until gravity pulls them down. They compare numerous plagues throughout our history which coincide with cometary bodies in our skies. These researchers are certain that germs causing plagues and epidemics come from space.” […]

“There is compelling evidence that the Black Death was not an outbreak of bubonic plague, but was in fact caused by a hemorrhagic virus. This case is synthesized in the book Return of the Black Death … in which Susan Scott and Christopher Duncan from Liverpool University carefully put all the available clues together, tracking the plague from its first appearance out of nowhere and chronicling its unprecedented catastrophic effects on European civilization – death on a scale that is unimaginable, but could very well happen again, at any time.” […]

“Plague outbreaks often coincided against a background of food shortages, famines, flooding, peasant uprisings and religious wars. In certain countries, there were volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and famines. And not only did the plague outbreaks coincide with cometary impacts, but earthquakes themselves may well have been indications of cometary impacts.”

Bio-Terror Drills

“Since the election of Barack Obama in 2008, there has been over 175 bio-terror drills in America which have conditioned first responders, law enforcement and military for an upcoming bio-terror attack and subsequent pandemic. The fact that these bio-terror drills exist in mass confirms that bio-terror attack is in the cards and may be played in a last ditch effort to regain political, economic and militarial control of society. Although there are numerous biological and chemical agents, roughly 90% of the bio-terror drills conducted were for response to an anthrax or smallpox attack.

Bio-Terror Plots & Pasties

Since the election of Barack Obama in 2008, there has also been over 50 bio-terror plots that have allegedly been subverted. In most cases, individuals were been arrested for biological or chemical related crimes that never came to fruition. Despite the ever growing number of high-profile bio-terror plots and patsies, the historical record indicates that 99% of all bio-terror plots, attacks, “tests”, “accidents” and drills are conducted by the government who has the means, the motive and the opportunity for a bio-terror attack.

Bio-Terror Scares & Hoaxes

Since the election of Barack Obama in 2008, there has also been over 50 bio-terror scares in America. A bio-terror scare is essentially a live bio-terror event except that the public and most of the authorities are unaware that there is no real bio-terror danger. Generally, once the incident is over, the news is broken hat there was no real threat. Bio-terror “scares” enable authorities to gage real time reactions to bio-terror and allow for better understanding of how the public, law enforcement and first responders will react in a real bio-terror emergency.

Mystery Biological Outbreaks

Since the election of Barack Obama in 2008, there have been at least 19 “mystery disease” outbreaks in the world. While some of the mystery diseases may have been legitimate outbreaks, most if not all of them appear to be generated man-made outbreaks with the overall goal of convincing American and the world that it is on the precipice of a major pandemic.

Identified Biological Outbreaks

Biological outbreaks worldwide have skyrocketed since 2011 with roughly 50 outbreaks in 2012 alone. While some of the documented reports may have been legitimate biological outbreaks, most if not all appear to be generated man-made outbreaks with the overall goal of convincing America and the world that it is on the precipice of a major pandemic.

Bio-Terror Scapegoats

In the aftermath of man-made bio-terror generated pandemic, the government and media will be feeding the public any number of different scapegoats in a desperate attempt to shift the blame and responsibility for the deadly pandemic onto anybody or anything but themselves. Various scapegoats have been developed over the last 20 years via the government, scientific community, mainstream media, education system, medical establishment and international politics specifically for the aftermath of a global bio-terror generated pandemic.

Bio-terror scapegoats include the continent of Africa, agriculture (food and animals), airports and air travel, Al Qaeda, bio safety labs, the notion that bio-terrorism is easy, bio-hackers, the black market, bugs and insects, censorship or lack thereof, domestic terrorists, transmission of disease from exotic animals (zoonosis), government ineptitude and stupidity, mail-order DNA , the country of Mexico, missile shield failure, diseased monkeys, and genetic mutation.

Biological Lab Accidents

Totally inexcusable and unlikely lab “accidents” have been occurring recently at BSL Labs (bio-safety level labs) within the United States and around the world. It appears that a majority of these “accidents” were done on purpose with the overall goal of convincing the medical community and the public that a lab “accident” could in fact lead to a global pandemic. Should a bio-terror pandemic arise, it is possible that a lab “accident” may serve as the scapegoat and source of the deadly pathogen.

The Bio-Terror Psyop

In December of 2011, a global bio-terror psyop (psychological operation), hoax, or false-flag was executed when it was revealed that a mutated airborne form of the H5N1 strain of avian influenza was created by a Dutch team of scientists led by Ron Fouchier, of Rotterdam’s Erasmus Medical Centre. This major discovery was fabricated in a calculated attempt by the modern medical establishment to deceive the world that into believing that humanity is on the precipice of a genetically mutated pandemic. After the story made international headlines and a 60 day moratorium on flu research was called, the claim of the new deadly air-borne pathogens was all but debunked by medical researchers in Wisconsin.

Real Causes of Bio-Terror

If and when a full-scale bio-terror attack occurs, the live pathogens or agents responsible for the pandemic will likely be dispersed via chemtrails by government airplanes or drones, by the U.S. Postal Service via Tide detergent samples, by the government and medical establishment via tainted vaccines, or by clinics via the portable petri dish commonly known as a Trojan condom. Although the aforementioned causes are all a possibility, it is most likely that tainted vaccines will be the root cause of millions of deaths.

Bio-Terror Propaganda

The overall goal of bio-terror propaganda is to convince America and the world that it is on the precipice of a bio-terror induced pandemic. Bio-terror propaganda is currently at an all-time high and confirms that an upcoming bio-terror attack is in the cards and may be played in a last ditch effort to regain political, economic and militarial control of society. Propaganda also has little regard for the actual reality of biological related sciences and is mostly fictitious in nature.”

One Last look at the real Economy Before it Implodes by Brandon Smith:

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5| Part 6

—————-

“There is no means of avoiding a final collapse of a boom brought about by credit expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as a result of a voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved.”

Ludwig von Mises

***

“In all major regions of the world, the economic recession is deep-seated, resulting in mass unemployment, the collapse of state social programs and the impoverishment of millions of people. The economic crisis is accompanied by a worldwide process of militarization, a “war without borders” led by the United States of America and its NATO allies. The conduct of the Pentagon’s “long war” is intimately related to the restructuring of the global economy. […]

War is inextricably linked to the impoverishment of people at home and around the world. Militarization and the economic crisis are intimately related. The provision of essential goods and services to meet basic human needs has been replaced by a profit-driven “killing machine” in support of America’s “Global War on Terror”. The poor are made to fight the poor. Yet war enriches the upper class, which controls industry, the military, oil and banking. In a war economy, death is good for business, poverty is good for society, and power is good for politics. Western nations, particularly the United States, spend hundreds of billions of dollars a year to murder innocent people in far-away impoverished nations, while the people at home suffer the disparities of poverty, class, gender and racial divides.

An outright “economic war” resulting in unemployment, poverty and disease is carried out through the free market. People’s lives are in a freefall and their purchasing power is destroyed. In a very real sense, the last twenty years of global “free market” economy have resulted, through poverty and social destitution, in the lives of millions of people.

Rather than addressing an impending social catastrophe, Western governments, which serve the interests of the economic elites, have installed a “Big Brother” police state, with a mandate to confront and repress all forms of opposition and social dissent.

The economic and social crisis has by no means reached its climax and entire countries, including Greece and Iceland, are at risk. One need only look at the escalation of the Middle East Central Asian war and the U.S.-NATO threats to China, Russia and Iran to witness how war and the economy are intimately related.”

Michel Chossoudovsky , The Global Economic Crisis, The Great Depression of the XXI Century.

 “What jumps out at you from the data concerning war is very simplistic – war does not unfold when everyone is fat and happy.  Turn the economy down and war rises just as we are seeing wide-scale civil unrest. These trends go hand in hand.  Government often NEEDS war because when the people get angry, they go after government. In self-defense, government ALWAYS needs to blame some other country or group.”

***

“Last year (2014) will likely go down in history as the ‘beginning of the end’ for the current global Central Banking system. What will follow will be a gradual unfolding of the next crisis and very likely the collapse of the Central Banking system as we know it.  However, this process will not be fast by any means.

Central Banks and the political elite will fight tooth and nail to maintain the status quo, even if this means breaking the law (freezing bank accounts or funds to stop withdrawals) or closing down the markets (the Dow was closed for four and a half months during World War 1).

There will be Crashes and sharp drops in asset prices (20%-30%) here and there. However, history has shown us that when a financial system goes down, the overall process takes take several years, if not longer.”

“The euro is fragile, it’s like building a castle of cards, if you take out the Greek card the others will collapse.”

Yanis Varoufakis, Greek finance minister says euro will collapse if Greece exits

***

“This time around, governments the world over have clearly chosen the second option. They’re cutting interest rates, boosting spending, and encouraging the use of modern financial engineering techniques to create a tidal wave of credit. And history teaches that, once in motion, this process leads to an inevitable result: Fiat (i.e., government-controlled currencies will become ever less valuable, until most of us just give up on them altogether.”

James Turk & John Rubino, The Coming Collapse of the Dollar and How to Profit from It: Make a Fortune by Investing in Gold and Other Hard Assets

***

“With America in serious debt and the economy on vulnerable footing, central banks around the world are increasingly wary of using a devalued U.S. dollar as their reserve currency. Should central banks and businesses eventually turn their backs on the U.S. dollar as the reserve currency, the United States will no longer be able to buy its way out of debt. The framework may already be in place. By the end of 2013, central banks held roughly 30,500 tonnes of gold, or one-fifth of all the gold ever mined. Most of these holdings are found in advanced economies in Western Europe and North America. This is odd since central banks only hold gold as a hedge against economic uncertainty.

Interestingly, and perhaps not so coincidently, central banks started to increase their gold reserves back in 2008, right on the heels of the financial crisis and the collapse of the U.S. housing market. Are central banks predicting a collapse in the U.S.dollar?” […]  Unless the U.S. can get its debt under control and its economy on solid ground, the American dollar will continue to lose favor as a reserve currency.

If that happens, the U.S. will actually have to rely on its own economic output—just like every other country.”

John Whitefoot, 2015 Predictions: U.S. Dollar to Collapse?

***

“Everybody knows what’s going on. The only reason the equity markets are moving up to the levels they are, are the record amounts of cheap money being pumped into the system.

So, when we look at why they’re [China] buying gold… what you’re looking at is virtually every day since the New Year began, volatility has been the name of the financial market game. So you see from Shanghai to New York, to stocks, bonds and oil prices, it’s swing time, man.

So the markets are moving on fake news that means nothing. The facts remain the same. There has been no recovery. It’s a cover-up.

It was a cover-up from the beginning when they came out with too-big-to-fails and TARP. They threw a tarp over the big lie to keep the Ponzi scheme going.

One of our keynote speakers was Nomi Prins, who wrote the book All the President’s Bankers… As it would have it, two days before our conference she was a keynote speaker at the Federal Reserve.

She spoke to members of the Federal Reserve, the IMF and the World Bank. 

And I said to her, ‘Nomi what was the one thing you learned?’

She said, ‘I learned that they don’t know what they’re doing. They don’t have a clue. They’re in uncharted waters and they’re faking it.’ “

“Historically every totalitarian and genocidal regime first goes after its designated opposition leaders classified red on its watch list of dissenters deemed enemies of the state for simply opposing Washington’s ruthless tyranny. And it would not be the first time in US history that a group of innocent American victims were targeted as the designated homegrown enemy.  Over 127,000 Japanese Americans were systematically rounded up, involuntarily relocated and unlawfully placed in prison camps during World War II. The Red Scare harassed and ruined hundreds of lives in the early 50′s. Then throughout the 1960’s and early 70’s J. Edgar’s FBI unlawfully compiled growing watch lists of antiwar student protestors, African American and Native American leaders and harassed and assassinated Malcolm X, MLK and targeted killings of members of both the Black Panther Party and American Indian Movement.

With the manufactured “war on terror,” political activists, combat veterans, constitutionalists, libertarians, progressives, anarchists, gun owners, right wing paramilitary militia group members, Tea Partiers, home school-ers and even fundamentalist Christians are but the latest victims monitored and singled out as today’s potential domestic terrorists. Thus, with Jade Helm the fear of persecution is certainly not in the least unfounded. Yet the liars and propagandists in the media and government every day are taking cheap shots at concerned patriots. Meanwhile in recent years Homeland Security documents and US Army manuals (FM 3-39.40 called Internment and Resettlement Operations) along with dozens of presidential executive orders and oppressive draconian laws (Patriot Act, 2012 NDAA) are all on the books specifying in detailed living proof how the federal government’s not-so-hidden agenda will be to force hundreds of thousands of US citizens to relocate into prison resettlement camps complete with fenced in barb wire walls, armed guard towers, tribunal and even mortuary sections. Psychological officers are designated to reprogram citizens deemed salvageable while the hardcore dissidents will simply be violently exterminated. These shocking details illustrating the feds’ sinister plan are all a matter of public record.”

Take a look at what General Wesley Clark said recently in relation to internment/detention camps:

“We have got to identify the people who are most likely to be radicalized. We’ve got to cut this off at the beginning. There is always a certain number of young people who are alienated. They don’t get a job, they lost a girlfriend, their family doesn’t feel happy here and we can watch for signs of that. And there are members of the community who can reach out to those people and bring them back in and encourage them to look at their blessings here.
But I do think on a national policy level we need to look at what self-radicalization means because we are at war with this group of terrorists. They do have an ideology. In World War II if someone supported Nazi Germany at the expense of the United States, we didn’t say that was freedom of speech, we put him in a camp, they were prisoners of war.

So, if these people are radicalized and they don’t support the United States and they are disloyal to the United States, as a matter of principle, that’s fine. It’s their right, and it’s our right and obligation to segregate them from the normal community for the duration of the conflict. And I think we’re going to have to increasingly get tough on this, not only in the United States but our allied nations like Britain, Germany and France are going to have to look at their domestic law procedures.”

“The fewer sunspot activities on the Sun witnessed since the last two solar cycles might lead to a “mini ice age-like situation” in coming years, Shrinivas Aundhkar, the director of Mahatma Gandhi Mission, Centre for Astronomy and Space Technology, Nanded, said here on Tuesday.

“The sunspots that can be seen on the Sun have comparatively less temperature compared to other surfaces on it (Sun),” he said while addressing a gathering for a lecture, Get Ready for Little Ice Age, held as part of the Narendra Dabholkar lecture series.

Aundhkar, who has worked with scientists across the world on Sun-Earth connection, said, “The Sun undergoes two cycles that are described as maximum and minimum. The activity alternates every 11 years, and the period is termed as one solar cycle. At present, the Sun is undergoing the minimum phase, reducing global temperatures.”

“‘Our new, extremely detailed data from the examination of the ice cores shows that in the transition from the ice age to our current warm, interglacial period the climate shift is so sudden that it is as if a button was pressed.’ This discovery suggests that our current climate could undergo a similar rapid change, shifting back into ice age mode in just one year.”

“It took just six months for a warm and sunny Europe to be engulfed in ice, according to new research. Previous studies have suggested the arrival of the last Ice Age nearly 13,000 years ago took about a decade – but now scientists believe the process was up to 20 times as fast. In scenes reminiscent of the Hollywood blockbuster The day After Tomorrow, the Northern Hemisphere was frozen by a sudden slowdown of the Gulf Stream, which allowed ice to spread hundreds of miles southwards from the Arctic. Geological sciences professor William Patterson, who led the research, said: ‘It would have been very sudden for those alive at the time. It would be the equivalent of taking Britain and moving it to the Arctic over the space of a few months.”

“Britain could be on the verge of a mini Ice Age as the Sun enters a cooler phase, the Met Office warned yesterday. The last big chill was felt hundreds of years ago when Frost Fairs were held on the frozen River Thames. However the Met Office said the new freeze will not be enough to cancel out the effects of global warming. Met Office’s Hadley Centre, which looks at long term forecasts, said there was a 15-20 per cent chance that we could match the temperatures last seen in 1645-1715 – sometimes called the Little Ice Age – when the River Thames froze over”

Apparently, the fracking industry is going to lead to America becoming the next Saudi Arabia with a hundred years of oil and natural gas. It will provide cheap energy supplies that will boost U.S. Industry and give a major boost to consumers and help the so-called economic recovery.

Yet all of the over inflated claims for shale oil and gas are based upon a fantasy. The geological evidence (See the exhaustive studies by University of Texas and by the geologist David Hughes for the Post Carbon Institute in 2014) shows quite clearly that shale gas and tight oil production is likely to peak in the next 5 years.”

 “It’s pretty much undisputed that the geological record shows periodic episodes of environmental stress and cataclysms on a global scale.

“If it seems like earthquakes and erupting volcanoes are happening more frequently, that’s because they are. Looking at global magnitude six (M6) or greater from 1980 to 1989 there was an average of 108.5 earthquakes per year, from 2000 to 2009 the planet averaged 160.9 earthquakes per year: that is a 38.9% increase of M6+ earthquakes in recent years. Unrest also seems to be growing among the world’s super-volcanoes. Iceland (which is home to some of the most dangerous volcanoes on the planet), Santorini in Greece, Uturuncu in Bolivia, the Yellowstone and Long Valley calderas in the U.S., Laguna del Maule in Chile, Italy’s Campi Flegrei – almost all of the world’s active super-volcanic systems are now exhibiting some signs of inflation, an early indication that pressure is building in these volcanic systems.”

The Extinction Protocol

***

“Is the number of volcanic eruptions worldwide increasing?  Yes.  During the 20th century, there were a total of 3,542 volcanic eruptions globally.  That works out to approximately 35 eruptions per year.  That may sound like a lot, but according to Volcano Discovery there are 36 volcanoes erupting around the world right now.  In other words, the number of volcanoes erupting as you read this article is greater than the 20th century’s yearly average.  And all of this is part of a larger trend.  In 2013, we witnessed the most volcanic eruptions worldwide that we had ever seen in a single year, and 2015 is already threatening to be another one for the record books.

All over the planet, volcanoes that have long been dormant are beginning to wake up, and this is greatly puzzling many scientists.  Fortunately, most of the eruptions in recent years have been relatively small.  But scientists tell us that if we do see a VEI 7 or a VEI 8 eruption today, the amount of energy that would be released would be somewhere in the neighborhood of a million nuclear bombs going off all at once, and such an eruption would completely literally transform our civilization almost overnight.”

The Number Of Volcanoes Erupting Right Now Is Greater Than The 20th Century’s YEARLY Average

***

“The idea that volcanic eruption may have terminated life on earth for the dinosaur, simply wakes you up when you consider the true danger an eruption poses to civilization. It’s even more daunting when you grasp the fact that earthquakes are essentially the fuse that sets them off.

In recent weeks, worldwide earthquake data indicates an increase in the magnitude and a significant increase in the frequency (magnitude > 5.5) of earthquakes.

Current graphs clearly show an alarming worldwide trend of increasing earthquake strength and frequency. These results are in agreement with the USGS statistics page, which shows an increase in the frequency of stronger earthquakes (M > 5.0).

These trends also show that the depth of earthquakes has diminished, they occur closer to the Earth’s surface. Shallow earthquakes occur along fault lines and are due to the accumulation of stress. Earthquake waves can also propagate far enough to trigger other earthquakes; this may explain the noted increase in earthquakes. […]

There are an estimated 1,500 active volcanoes around the world, 50 to 60 erupt every year, spewing steam, ash, gas and lava. These reflectively, mild outburst don’t come close to the dangers Yellowstone present. The fact is, if it were ever to erupt, it would only take moments to end the life of everyone in close proximity. If you like in the USA, the idea of escaping its reach is borderline fantasy. In other words, it would be practically impossible. One can only hope that it doesn’t blow in our lifetime; but it is certain to erupt in someone’s lifetime.

Earthquakes, The Fuse That Ignites Volcanoes, Have Increased Worldwide

“The eruption of a ‘super volcano’ hundreds of times more powerful than conventional volcanoes – with the potential to wipe out civilisation as we know it – is more likely than previously thought, a study has found.
An analysis of the molten rock within the dormant super volcano beneath Yellowstone National Park in the United States has revealed that an eruption is possible without any external trigger, scientists said.  Scientists previously believed many super volcanic eruptions needed earthquakes to break open the Earth’s crust so magma could escape. But new research suggests that this can happen as a result of the build-up of pressure.

Super volcanoes represent the second most globally cataclysmic event – next to an asteroid strike – and they have been responsible in the past for mass extinctions, long-term changes to the climate and shorter-term “volcanic winters” caused by volcanic ash cutting out the sunlight.”.

– Risk of super volcano eruption big enough to ‘affect the world’ far greater than thought, say scientists

“Just over one year ago, a magnitude-9 earthquake hit the Tohoku region of northeastern Japan, triggering one of the most destructive tsunamis in a thousand years. The Japanese—the most earthquake-prepared, seismically savvy people on the planet—were caught off-guard by the Tohoku quake’s savage power. Over 15,000 people died.

Now scientists are calling attention to a dangerous area on the opposite side of the Ring of Fire, the Cascadia Subduction Zone, a fault that runs parallel to the Pacific coast of North America, from northern California to Vancouver Island. This tectonic time bomb is alarmingly similar to Tohoku, capable of generating a megathrust earthquake at or above magnitude 9, and about as close to Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver as the Tohoku fault is to Japan’s coast. Decades of geological sleuthing recently established that although it appears quiet, this fault has ripped open again and again, sending vast earthquakes throughout the Pacific Northwest and tsunamis that reach across the Pacific.

What happened in Japan will probably happen in North America. The big question is when.” […]

“The world geological community is warning that today’s seismic activity on our planet is nothing compared with what’s to come.

Over the past three years, Pakistan, for example, has been hit by dozens of earthquakes. In March 2005, 80,000 people died under the rubble there. On October 30, the last time nature went on the rampage, there were hundreds of victims. Tens of thousands of people drowned during an overwhelming Asian tsunami at the end of 2004. China and Afghanistan have been rocked by quakes again more recently.

These natural disasters, which have swept our planet in recent years, indicate that the world has entered an era not only of a political, but also of climatic instability. Most scientists – biologists and environmentalists – tend to blame the human race for the catastrophic climate change on the Earth. No doubt, the greenhouse effect due to industrial activity plays a considerable role in global warming, but there are other reasons worth considering.

The Earth is rotating around its own axis slower. The International Earth Rotation Service has regularly added a second or two to the length of a 24-hour day in recent years.

This is the main reason, according to Igor Kopylov, professor at Moscow Energy Institute, why the planet – a gigantic electrical machine – has had its energy balance upset. He expressed this viewpoint in 2004. Kopylov is convinced that the Earth has entered the first phase of a global change. A weakening of the Earth’s magnetic field was first registered early in the 20th century, and a consistent drop in the speed of rotation, in the late 1980s and early 1990s. It has been established that when the Earth’s rotation slows by one second a year, it releases a tremendous amount of heat, hundreds of times the volume of energy released by human industrial activity.

If we accept that all processes on Earth run according to cosmic cycles, which, in turn, depend on the Solar System’s position in our Galaxy, then humankind may be facing another Great Flood.

The Solar System, including the Earth, travels through the Galaxy in spiraling elliptic paths. The cycle time for the larger spiral is 200-210 million years, and for the smaller one, which determines minor galactic cycles, 26,000 years. Correspondingly, half a cycle lasts 130 centuries. This period almost exactly coincides with the date of the last Flood, the occurrence of which was real. The myths and legends of many peoples including that of the Bible recorded the event.

The Flood has been dated rather precisely: at 11,100 BC. If we accept that the civilized society on Earth has been developing for 400,000 years, then this period saw 30 great floods, and we are witnessing the beginnings of the thirty-first flood.

The cosmic cycles are so gigantically long by human standards that they have little impact on the life of people, but the active initial phase of the galactic cycle is of vital importance for the development of civilization. In the view of Russian scientists, the Earth currently finds itself at precisely this point in the cycle.

The transitional process in the electrical machine “planet Earth” can be divided into three phases. During the first – lasting 300 to 500 years – a relatively quick change in the direction of cross current (according to the law of electric machines) will alter the Earth’s magnetic field, with the Northern magnetic pole shifting to the eastern part of the Arctic Ocean.

 “Bizarre reports of gaping holes in the ground continue to come in from all over the place – in cities, on the open roads, in the countryside. Many of the ‘sinkholes’ … have been individually explained away as happening due to heavy rainfall during storms, old leftover constructions from mining and subsidence caused by some nearby disturbance – either natural or man-made. The cause of others, however, remain mysterious. I think the important thing to consider is why so many of these sinkholes are appearing at once.

If you consider that the universe speaks to us in symbols, then perhaps there may be a deeper meaning behind their appearance at this evolutionary crossroads for humanity? With all the other Earth Changes going on before our very eyes, I think sinkholes provide more evidence that an old stable system — namely, Earth’s surface — is breaking up.”

“Scientists are increasingly pointing to storms as a trigger for earthquakes and mudslides. That’s raising questions about the effects that climate change might have on one of the world’s deadliest natural catastrophes, and to what extent, if any, insurers and governments could be adapting to the interplay between atmosphere and earth.

So far, those answers are as mysterious as the timing of earthquakes, a question that has baffled humans — and killed them — for generations. But recent findings suggest that some linkage exists to increasingly powerful storms.”

In other words, the public is abandoned to their fate. Not only abandoned, but a deliberate policy of concealment of the facts is clearly in place…”

“They say the timing of the Solar System’s passage through the galactic plane – around 20 to 30 million years – closely matches spikes in the distribution of large impact craters on Earth for the past 250 million years. They conclude that comets have been responsible for most of Earth’s impact craters and may pose an unrecognised risk to our civilisation. Current NEO programs might be “monitoring a swarm of bees while standing on a railway line with an express train due,” says the study.”

In Case You Thought We Were Safe: Earth Under Threat From Dark Comets

“I am quite certain the elites in practice currently know VERY “much LESS than they let on” and that the situation for humanity is dire. Any comfort you may draw from the opposite opinion seems to me to be entirely misplaced. Thus although the globally modest efforts to assess the NEO threat with telescopes by a few semi-enlightened national administrations (eg USA) or by a few private enterprises (eg Gates) are certainly to be commended, I look upon this aspect of the NEO threat as basically intermittent and therefore more or less symbolic so far as generally more urgent and still largely undetected low mass NEO flux (which is demonstrably climatological in its effect) is concerned. This particular threat (evidently responsible for our planet’s evolving glacial/interglacial condition during the past 3 million years) is of course _fundamentally_ ignored by the current Body Scientific and hence by most of humanity as well.”

[T]he Christian, Islamic and Judaic cultures have all moved since the European Renaissance to adopt an unreasoning anti-apocalyptic stance, apparently unaware of the burgeoning science of catastrophes. History, it now seems, is repeating itself: it has taken the Space Age to revive the Platonist voice of reason but it emerges this time within a modern anti-fundamentalist, anti-apocalyptic tradition over which governments may, as before, be unable to exercise control. … Cynics (or modern sophists), in other words, would say that we do not need the celestial threat to disguise Cold War intentions; rather we need the Cold War to disguise celestial intentions!

“A new study confirms the potential hazard of nearby gamma-ray bursts (GRBs), and quantifies the probability of an event on Earth and more generally in the Milky Way and other galaxies. The authors find a 50% chance that a nearby GRB powerful enough to cause a major life extinction on the planet took place during the past 500 million years (Myr). They further estimate that GRBs prevent complex life like that on Earth in 90% of the galaxies.”

The dangers of solar storms: That which gives power can also take it away

“In 1989, ground currents from a less intense geomagnetic storm knocked out a high-voltage transformer at a hydroelectric power plant Quebec, plunging the Canadian province into a prolonged 9-hour blackout on an icy winter night. A far more extreme geomagnetic storm washed over the Earth in May of 1921, its magnitude illustrated in world-girdling aurorae and in fires that broke out in telegraph offices, telephone stations, and railroad routing terminals — sites that sucked up geomagnetic currents traveling through nascent power grids. An even more extreme storm in September 1859 caused geomagnetic currents so strong that for days telegraph operators could disconnect their equipment from battery power and send messages solely via the “auroral current” induced in their transmission lines. The 1859 storm is known as the ‘Carrington Event,’ after a British astronomer who witnessed an associated solar flare and connected it with the subsequent earthbound disturbances.

‘The physics of the Sun and of Earth’s magnetic field have not fundamentally changed, but we have,’ … ‘We decided to build the power grids, and we’ve progressively made them more vulnerable as we’ve connected them to every aspect of our lives. Another Carrington Event is going to occur someday.’ But unlike in 1859, when the telegraph network was the sole technology endangered by space weather, or in 1921, when electrification was in its infancy, today’s vulnerable systems are legion.”

“A major theory is that oceans can and have produced methane gas, and was responsible for the Permian Mass Extinction. This explosion killed up to 95% of life on earth during that period. A seafloor basin of methane saturated water may have a breaking point. An earthquake, underwater landslide, or even a meteor impact could have triggered this, and suddenly, like shaking a giant soda bottle, the deepest part of the ocean would have exploded in a deadly storm of methane bubbles.”

–  Permian Mass Extinction: Methane gas oceanic explosion wiped out 95% of life and it can happen again!

***

“The research team have located new and large (~1km wide) plumes of outgassing methane, in areas not previously investigated, so this is not necessarily a recent development: at least, there are no previous data from these areas to compare the large plumes with.

That the area has seen warming over a prolonged time since the Holocene transgression and that there has been an additional, sharp recent warming event is well-documented. Whether there is increased outgassing caused by the additional recent warming is an important question that requires urgent investigation, a point indeed made in Shakhova et al’s 2010 paper in Science  – PDF – see last paragraph.

Further work will better constrain known current methane emissions to the atmosphere, currently estimated to be 8 Tg (1 Tg=1 million tonnes) per year. Clearly, because new sources have been identified, the figure is greater than 8Tg but how much so remains to be discovered.

A large (multi-gigaton) abrupt release event is considered possible, but when is not known. It is important to remember that hydrocarbons, including methane, migrate upwards through the Earth’s crust from their source-rocks due to their low density. Basic oil geology tells us that recoverable oil and gas deposits occur where such upward migration has been blocked by an impermeable barrier (an oil- or gas-trap) such as a salt-dome or anticline including thick impermeable strata such as a clay-bed. In such places, the accumulation can build up to the point where the oil/gas is in an highly pressurised state – hence the “blowouts” that have been recorded over the years in some oilfields. What Shakhova is suggesting is that if buried gas hydrates destabilise, what could result is accumulations of pressurised methane capped off by permafrost, which because it is degrading might lose its effectiveness as a gas-trap. The same point would, I suggest, apply to non-hydrate derived methane i.e. gas that has remained as gas. What one would likely see in such a scenario would be a strong increase in outgassing, not in one great “burp” at one locality but via multiple pathways up through the defrosted sediment over a wide area.”

Official Culture Reprise VII: Moving Away From the Psychopath’s Dream (4)

“Perhaps the most important lesson of Ladakh has to do with happiness. Only after many years of peeling away layers of preconceptions did I begin to see the joy and laughter of the Ladakhis for what it really was: a genuine and unhindered appreciation of life itself. In Ladakh I have known a people who regard peace of mind and joie de vivre as their unquestioned birthright. I have seen that community and a close relationship to the land can enrich human life beyond all comparison with material wealth or technological sophistication.”

Helena Norberg-Hodge, Ancient Futures


 Ladakh_panorama

Learning from Ladakh

One example of the social consequences of Official Culture meeting pathology-free communities is from the thousand year-old Buddhist people of Ladakh situated in the desert of the Western Himalayas known as : “little Tibet.” There is no romantic gilding here, theirs is a story of survival, endurance and physical hardship set against a harsh environment. The  essence and principles of their continued existence and the coming of Western “development” places in sharp relief the kind of values necessary to create a community and to see it function and thrive. Yet, the deep spiritual resource that the Ladakhis embodied and which pervaded every facet of their lives was a lesson in ancient humility and reverence for a sacredness that we have lost – to our absolute detriment. Simplicity, yes, raw nature, indeed. But the Ladakhis appeared to have a spiritual health that was far in advance of our own. Like many indigenous cultures, it is not so hard to see why. For all our intellectual feats of daring-do, our Western populations in particular, remain desperately unhappy and dangerously lost.

So, what does that mean?

We all give up our i-pads and urban lifestyles and go and live in yurts and commune with nature?

Actually, that’s probably a very healthy thing to do for a while. But it’s deeper than that. This is about reclaiming who we are, and what we choose to see. It is about discovering a state of Being not a physical location or lifestyle. If the new science is correct at the cutting edge of physics, then perhaps such changes can potentially cause ripples throughout the fabric of reality which might lead to a practical application of new ways of living. Maybe these new visions can be divorced from the ridiculous, unsustainable and pathological road to hell which characterises the disease of Western culture. Can we not collect the building blocks of Western innovation and transmute them into something quite different? I think we can. But first we must look squarely at the most basic nature of Western – largely Anglo-American – perception has done to an old way of life which could have taught us so much.  This “dis-ease” of the West made quick work of subsuming the Ladakhi youth into that same materialist, “little picture” prison, changing their lives forever; first economically, then culturally and finally eroding their living spirituality. Their story represents a cautionary tale for us in the West about to embrace the promise of a Brave new SMART society.

Helena Norberg Hodge

Helena Norberg-Hodge * lived with the Ladakh people for over twenty years documenting her experiences in Ancient Futures: Learning from Ladakh (1991). Despite living physically arduous routine of subsistence, she described a people who were, in a word: happy. Not in the superficial sense based on what we have or don’t have in any given moment, but from a contentment that sprung from deeply rooted ethical values, grounded in practical needs and sourced from a complex spiritual and artistry of understanding of the interconnection and interrelatedness of all things. Buddhist philosophy, in the Ladakhi’s world was the foundation to that inner nourishment and satisfaction that was unalterable. At least, until a consumerist culture arrived.

Norberg-Hodge questions her friend about one of the central elements of Buddhism: the philosophy of sunyata, or emptiness:

It is something you can only fully grasp through a combination of reflection and personal experience. But I‘ll try to explain it in a simple way. When you think of a tree, you tend to think of it as a distinct, clearly defined object, and on a certain level it is. But on a more important level, the tree has no independent existence; rather, it dissolves into a web of relationships. The rain that falls on its leaves, the wind that causes it to sway, the soil that supports it—all form part of the tree. Ultimately, if you think about it, everything in the universe helps make the tree what it is. It cannot be isolated; its nature changes from moment to moment—it is never the same. This is what we mean when we say that things are ‘empty,’ that they have no independent existence. [1]

As a consequence, the real emptiness found in the West has ironically supplanted a perception and way of life which is infinitely more stable and enduring. Whereas the monotheistic religions have given retributive rules and the abdication of responsibility with little incentive for self-knowledge, Ladakhi Buddhist values offer the opposite, despite unfounded accusations of nihilism. In reference to Christianity: “Everything is all laid out for you … Everything has been determined by God and is controlled by Him. It must make people very apathetic. There seems to be no room in Christianity for personal growth in the way there is in Buddhism. Through spiritual practice we have an opportunity to develop ourselves.” [2]

ancient-futures

Ancient futures first published in 1991.

The relationship to the world exists not in polarities and resistance and forcibly attaining what one wants by “making it happen” or “giving till it hurts” but by stopping long enough to catch sight of the essential nature of the human self with its biorhythms and cycles intimately connected to the environment that mirrors the same. It is then that we come to know when to be active and when to be passive in time to the mini-cycles of our daily lives and the larger ones such as seasons and solstices. It is an unsentimental and pragmatic philosophy of perspicacity where everything has its place – both predator and prey; a dualism which is present in our own minds, where each needs to be honoured and integrated.

Indeed, in Ladakhi terms: “Illness is caused by a lack of understanding” which is increasingly confirmed by both Eastern and Western medicine where a more holistic approach gives – more positive holistic results. In reality, this represents yet another return to ancient ideas of the body-mind complex where listening and understanding are two sides of the same coin. How often do we genuinely listen to another and make it clear that we hear them, even if we disagree? How often do we listen to our body when it manifests denials and unresolved emotional trauma? Validation does not have to mean agreement but it can mean a respect and a foundation from which progress can build. Reaction only creates more chaos and mis-diagnoses based on mis-understanding too narrow a view.

The root cause of so much unhappiness and imbalance appears to be from the pursuit of our desires dictated by those whose nature is desire, at any cost. This has become the standard by which society defines itself. The Ladakhis find meaning in their lives through: “… a lasting happiness that is unaffected by the transient flow of outer events.” What is more, it is not about denying desire, any existence or escaping into something better, it is concerned with altering our perception and assumptions of what constitutes healthy living, many of which have taken root as a result of social engineering sourced from those unwilling or incapable of conceiving something other than their own limiting beliefs. These willingly accepted limitations have now become normal stifling creativity and trust. As that wise old Frenchman Voltaire once exclaimed:  “Common Sense is not so common,” because we have been stripped of the innate inner-tuition of our instinctive unconscious which has been forced to adapt to an entirely foreign set of artificial and entropic constructs. Our loss of deep purpose and meaning is exactly what the Ladakhis had in abundance and which gave them a spiritual synergy we so desperately crave.

The Ladakhis have a spiritual belief, yet it is rooted in a practical, common sense approach to the material world and the minutiae of daily living. It therefore can be described as information which has been applied and overlain with archetypal symbolism. It is therefore knowledge grounded in the wisdom of generational experience; a rich communion with realities beyond the purely material world. This is not the kind of belief that conforms to unhealthy restrictions borne of fear or the need for security. Faith is consistently provided with evidence of its worth. The instances of anthropomorphism of spiritual realities is merely a technique to cloth certain principles with culturally suitable imagery for coming generations so that the underlying meaning is naturally conveyed and assimilated. it provides the intrinsic glue of the oral traditions that serves as the heart and soul of community relations. This, after all,  used to be how European folktales provided deep archetypal nourishment to the young in order to assist in the harmonious inner development of the child’s psyche. 

In this way, they see the folly of self-aggrandisement because, as Norberg-Hodge describes in the Ladakhis’ living philosophy:

The ‘Self’ or ego, is ultimately no more separate than anything else in the universe. The delusion that self exists independently is perhaps the greatest obstacle on the path to enlightenment. The belief in absolute, permanent existence leads to a cycle of endless craving, and the craving brings suffering. In our attachment to the notion of a separate self and separate things, we end up constantly striving and reaching for something new. Yet as soon as we have attained what we are seeking, the luster is gone and we set our sights elsewhere. Satisfaction is rare and brief; we are forever frustrated…Tashi would often remind me that knowledge and understanding were not sufficient in themselves. In fact they could be dangerous, he would say, if not accompanied by compassion. [3]

Compassion is antithetical to those who govern and broker power in the world today which merely underscores the fact that power in the hands of those without such principles will always be a recurrent disaster for the world. Compassion is eaten by psychopaths and reconstituted into further energy for rapacious, predatory behaviour. As Ladakh was effectively isolated from the activities of the West for so long and when such an open, loving, profoundly connected network of communities of people made contact, change was inevitable. Like the physical diseases brought by European man to the indigenous races of the past, the Ladakhis were no different except that the presence of a psycho-spiritual corrosion took place where psychopathological tendencies and a collective psychosis spread across the culture. What author and teacher Paul Levy calls a malignant egophrenia, Andrew Lobaczewski called the psycho-pathogenic infection of ponerology and which the Native American Peoples called the crypto-geographical presence of “Wetiko” – these are all terms for the same sickness of the soul which has swept the globe and remains undiscovered in the hinterlands of our unconscious.

The youth of Ladakh, once exposed to the quick-fix contagion of our culture were quickly and tragically made to feel inferior to it. While absorbing the apparent material benefits of such consumerist excess, they could not see: “… the social or psychological dimensions—the stress, the loneliness, the fear or growing old. Nor can they see the environmental decay, inflation, or unemployment.” [4] As we saw in Official Culture, the social engineering of sexuality and the idea of sex and sexuality as a component of something sacred and mysterious – not least, as a consequence of the natural expression of love – is something quaint, antiquated and even amusing in our so called age of liberation and freedom. Sex, love and the role of women have a different meaning in Ladakhi culture:

One of the first things that struck me on my arrival in Ladakh was the wide, uninhibited smiles of the women, who move freely, joking and speaking with men in an open and unselfconscious way…women generally exhibit great self-confidence, strength of character, and dignity. Almost all early travellers to Ladakh commented on the exceptionally strong position of women. […]

Are there special qualities that people look for when choosing a wife?

Well, first of all, she should be able to get along with people, to be fair and tolerant.

What else is important?

Her skills are valued, and she shouldn‘t be lazy.

Does it matter if she is pretty or not?

Not really. It‘s what she‘s like inside that counts—her character is more important. We say here in Ladakh, ‘A tiger‘s stripes are on the outside; human stripes are on the inside.’ [5]

Ladakh_(45793610)_(2)As a result of this practical philosophy of life, Norberg-Hodge discovered during her stays with the Ladakh people, that their sense of self was inclusive to the extent that they did not retreat behind barriers of fear and self-protection but in fact:  “… they seem to be totally lacking in what we would call pride. This doesn‘t mean a lack of self-respect. On the contrary, their self-respect is so deep rooted as to be unquestioned. I have never met people that seem so healthy emotionally, so secure, as the Ladakhis.”

Can you imagine a society devoid of pride or narcissism? Think what that would for the decision-making process in business, economics and community relations? It would totally change the very nature of society itself. But is that a utopian perfection?

As Norberg-Hodge explains: “The reasons are, of course, complex and spring from a whole way of life and world-view. But I am sure that the most important factor is the sense that you are a part of something much larger than yourself, that you are inextricably connected to others and your surroundings.” [6]

That being so, why has such a profound truth been erased from our memory? Religion, science and education have utterly failed to deliver a true sense of meaning though the idea that we are part of something mysterious and which transcends the material world is intuitively known by most people. Political ponerology has warped and contoured global populations to a singular world-view which places any idea of multi-dimensionality and cooperative visions beyond the reach of ordinary people. The cost to our spiritual heritage has been incalculable where the impetus of desire and the need possess to fill up this unfillable void defines our status and our identity.

Norberg-Hodge describes a healthy society as:

“… one that encourages close social ties and mutual interdependence, grating each individual net of unconditioned emotional support. Within this nurturing framework, individuals feel secure enough to become quite free and independent. Paradoxically, I have found the Ladakhis less emotionally dependent than we are in industrial society. There is love and friendship, but it is not intense or grasping—not a possession of one person by another.” [7]

Yet to possess, in all its forms is the hallmark of capitalist societies. For the Elite and the apathetic, it is the: “close social ties and mutual interdependence” and “emotional support” that must be systematically replaced with dependency on the State, whilst fulfilling our obedient roles as consumers with its inculcation of fear and insecurity should you determine to live your lives outside Official Culture.

The “success” of the West and its agribusiness is a seductive illusion from which millions have been drawn, including those from Ladakh. Norberg-Hodge explains why: “Previously, with cooperative labor between people, farmers had no need for money. Now, unable to pay larger and larger wages for farm hands, some are forced to abandon the villages.” Some in the global market place and mass immigration from Western-backed destabilised countries have found their fortune but most have not. The end of blue collar work is in sight through computerization and robotics. It has long been a familiar story characterising the Industrial Revolution and the rise of the global industrialists.

The monoculture of the mind that inevitably descended on Ladakh infected first the minds of the young and old alike with a culture-shock which led to a restructuring of the notion of time and with it the sense of place within the fabric of Nature. The Ladakhi connection to and between the land and psyche, community values and Western precepts merged to create disorientation and obligation to a world that was essentially alien. Insecurity and lack of self-esteem logically had to follow as did the Western template of self-importance or pride:

The Ladakhis now have less time for each other and for themselves. As a result, they are losing their once-acute sensitivity to the nuances of the world around them—the ability, for instance, to detect the slightest variations in the weather, or in the movement of the stars. A friend from Markha Valley summed it up for me: ―I can‘t understand it. My sister in the capital she now has all these things that do the work faster. She just buys her clothes in a shop; she has a jeep, a telephone, a gas cooker. All of these things save so much time, and yet when I visit her, she doesn‘t have time to talk to me. [8]

The consumerist ethos of possessing products and by extension, possessing another has radically changed a thousand of year-old way of life into a complete dependency towards agribusiness and factory-farming, where the use of animals reflects our steady commodification. In Ladakh, though essential to survival, animals were respected and treated as a gift from Nature. As one Ladakhi mentioned: “They become your friends, you relate[d] to them. If they have done a particularly good job, if they have worked particularly hard, you might give them something special to eat. But machines are dead; you have no relationship with them. When you work with machines, you become like them, you become dead yourself.” [9]

And once “dead” inside we begin to seek anything and everything to fill up that void. This meant for Ladakhi people that the very notion of living and working became an entirely different measure of survival. No longer was living lightly on the Earth as natural as the seasons, it was a function – albeit efficient – of machine consciousness:

In the traditional subsistence economy, money played a minor role, used primarily for luxuries—jewellery, silver, and gold. Basic needs—food, clothing, and shelter—were provided for without money. The labor one needed was free of charge, part of an intricate web of human relationships. In one day a tourist would spend the same amount that a Ladakhi family might in a year. Ladakhis did not realize that money played a completely different role for the foreigners; that back home they needed it to survive; that food, clothing and shelter all cost money—a lot of money. Compared to these strangers they suddenly felt poor…Tourists can only see the material side of the culture—worn out woolen robes, the dzo pulling a plough, the barren land. They cannot see peace of mind or the quality of family and community relations. They cannot see the psychological, social, and spiritual wealth of the Ladakhis. Besides giving the illusion that all Westerners are multimillionaires, the tourist also helps perpetuate another faulty image of modern life—that we never work. It looks as though our technologies do the work for us. In industrial society today, we actually spend more hours working than people in rural, agrarian economies. But that is not how it looks to Ladakhis. For them, work is physical work, walking, and carrying things…

…Every day I saw people from two different cultures, a world apart, looking at each other and seeing superficial, one-dimensional images. Tourists see people carrying loads on their backs and walking long distances over high mountain passes and say, ―How terrible; what a life of drudgery. They forget they have traveled thousands of miles and spent thousands of dollars for the pleasure of walking through the same mountains with heavy backpacks. They also forget how much their bodies suffer from lack of use at home. During working hours they get no exercise, so they spend their free time trying to make up for it. Some will even drive to a health club—across a polluted city in rush hour—to sit in a basement, pedaling a bicycle that does not go anywhere. And they actually pay for the privilege. [10]

The diversity of other cultures touching our own, sharing our values and experiences should be one of the greatest joys of the human journey. But the root causes of our collective meeting across oceans and national borders will often define how the social integration and tolerance plays out. If these cross-fertilisations of culture and race have been enforced through colonialism and economic hardship then fear, survival and psychological trauma are the foundations upon which future relationships are based and ordinary people must deal with the complex fallout. As such, education can help with communication and tolerance, enriching the mind and expanding the knowledge base.

But does it?

Western ideas of education have been justly lauded as a human right yet they are devoid of a pragmatic spiritual framework and worse still, when it is present it is spawned from a big mix of urban, religo-occult, Christian, Anglo-American, and Euro-centric models which amounts to an indoctrination of the Western ideal to which all should aspire. It offers the same bland, Universalist information as though all cultures and countries are alike. Western education reinforces competition and a strangely Darwinian and materialist world-view that is devoid of context and cultural nuance. It therefore helps to foster dependency on unsustainable resources and increases scarcity, a perception that is funnelled through globalised pupils: the new channels of production and homogenisation. Alternative modalities, emotional and interpersonal skills and multi-disciplinary approaches offering the cutting edge of new thought are seldom brought into the light of day. Therefore, the price of education and being “informed” is to lose the sense of identity to be replaced with another that is rootless. It offers an education that promises its students of developing nations to become more aware of what is happening in the world and how to join the global economy that is DE-pendent when once you were IN-dependent.

Like so many ancient and indigenous cultures forced into the Western fold Ladakh is no different, where modern schooling, just as it does to the young American or British child: “acts almost as a blindfold, preventing children from seeing the context in which they live. They leave school unable to use their resources, unable to function in their own world.” In traditional cultures there was no separation of education from their environment and the intimate relationships between the ecology of the mind and land. Learning came forth naturally from the extended family and friends who were all involved in maintaining the organism that was family, and community. The spiritual, economic and emotional nourishment came from hard work, a deep knowledge that was transmitted to children, by example.

Unlike generations of children in the West who are force-fed learning that is designed to contour the developing mind towards the implacable necessity of the global market, the Ladakhis were taught something quite different. For instance, regarding the practice of sowing: “… they would learn that on one side of the village it was a little warmer, on the other side a little colder. From their own experience children would come to distinguish between different strains of barley and the specific growing conditions each strained preferred. They learned to recognize even the tiniest wild plant and how to use it, and how to pick out a particular animal on a faraway mountain slope”. [11]

In comparison to children in most of our mega-cities, many of whom have no idea what or where a cow comes from and exhibit a complete disconnection from the concept of the natural world, Ladakhi toddlers absorbed more knowledge about the intricate processes of their environment than the average adult urban dweller would in their life time. There was no separation between themselves and Nature thus there was a profound heart to heart connection between people which embraced the dark and the light as an integral unit. There couldn’t afford to be imbalance as it was both their inspiration and source of survival – the very locus of their ancestors:

For generation after generation, Ladakhis grew up learning how to provide themselves with clothing and shelter; how to make shoes out of yak skin and robes from the wool of sheep; how to build houses out of mud and stone. Education was location-specific and nurtured an intimate relationship with the living world. It gave children an intuitive awareness that allowed them, as they grew older, to use resources in an effective and sustainable way. None of that knowledge is provided in the modern school. Children are trained to become specialist in a technological, rather than an ecological society. School is a place to forget traditional skills and, worse, to look down on them. […] The new economy cuts people off from the earth. [12]

Can the people of Ladakh reverse the tide of exploitation and ride the new technologies and rising awareness in people all over globe? The ancient models that promoted ecological consciousness and innovative and creative thinking are making a comeback, but psychological knowledge must also go hand in hand. A restored connection to the earth is only viable if the social systems are founded on knowledge that prevents the rise of pathologies in the first place. The so-called civilised West has destroyed, converted, “integrated” or wiped out cultures like Ladakh that do not adapt to the neo-liberal economic model of consumption. It is the history of the founding fathers and the Natives American Indians; the conquistadores of Spain and the Incas; the British Empire and the trade of the East Indian Company that laid the foundations for colonization and the mark of European progress, translated as the disbursement of psychopathic genes across the globe. As a consequence, we are labouring under a serious erosion of spiritual meaning in so many of our lives and an explosion of mental illness.

We know that perhaps such rampant pathways of exploitation are not an inevitable part of man’s evolutionary destiny and do not necessarily have to re-occur and repeat. Nature is no longer our Mother nor are we her children. She will carry on regardless. By taking care of our own inner ecology we attend to the larger ecology of which we are a part. We have come of age with enough knowledge to know how to achieve a more harmonious way of life. In one sense, there is no need to “heal the Earth” or “Save” it. It is time to grow up.

If the Earth decides we have chosen to sign away our potential to the destructive nature of the psychopath and the Wetiko disease, then she will wipe the slate clean as overwhelming meteorological and geological evidence attests. Therefore, it behooves us to understand not only the seeds of our present state but the signs that are all around us: that humanity may have reached this stage many times before.

Which brings us to our final piece of the puzzle: the little matter of global change and cyclical cataclysms ….

 


* I was privileged to attend one of Helena Norberg Lodge’s seminars at the Schumacher College a few years after her book had been published. She was enormously eloquent, passionate and overflowing with knowledge about Ladakh. It was infectious. So much so, it prompted me to dig deeper toward my own quest which may not have led me quite where I expected (when does it ever?) but it certainly brought me face to face with exactly the same universal precepts which the Ladakhis so naturally embodied. I then had to discover why it was that they were not present within me.

Official Culture Reprise VI: Moving Away From the Psychopath’s Dream (3)

 “No science is immune from the infection of politics and the corruption of power.”

Jacob Bronowski, English scientist


The reader might be tempted to think that I’ve invested in my own belief system by placing the all the world’s problems at the door of the essential psychopath. While it is true that I think the majority of our struggles have at their root a great psychological component it could also be said that beyond this “nuts and bolts” cause is the more profound conundrum of how we perceive reality and the human constructs we have erected around it. One might say, at heart, all of our problems are ultimately of a spiritual nature.

The very word “Spirituality” – rather like “conspiracy”- will have loaded connotations for all of us. For some it means all that is outside science and therefore, to be distrusted. For others it has religious or New Age connotations. Still more cite indifference or become uncomfortable at the mere mention of the word. Most people however, while not necessarily believing in a religious God, do place value on the idea of our existence having purpose where getting along with others is a prerequisite for the betterment of one’s life. Some would say this has more to do with reflecting insecurity and fear of death rather than any true belief in a Universal purpose, but this misses the point.

The key principle enshrined in the notion of spirituality is one of establishing growth which moves toward harmony in oneself and thus as a natural consequence, those we meet in our daily lives. It need be as simple as that, although in practice is anything but. But when things begin to slowly – usually very slowly – change, then so does the external world. But Or as the ancient Taoist mystic Lao Tzu succinctly put it: “When you accept yourself, the whole world accepts you.” Self-acceptance only comes when we have divested ourselves of the majority of conditioning however, and that is something that the controllers of our world definitely do not want to see.

The Scientific Super-Highway. But what’s fuelling the car? Where’s the map and where the hell are we going?

It is this quest for self-knowledge, self-acceptance and a parallel analysis of world events can represent a science of the soul. Yet, sadly, one of the most distorted domains in society which could have been at the vanguard of creative solutions in its widest sense – is science. Far from an acceptance that it’s inherent remit is that orthodox science doesn’t know but is always striving toward that end, like so many of our disciplines it is simply mirroring the disconnection to spiritual realities in a way that has wrought destruction across the collective mind of humanity.

Since psychopaths naturally adopt a world-view that is often strictly materialist and without true creativity they restrict the science which could push the envelope for new discoveries. This is especially true in the fields of depth psychology, the analysis of dreams and what Łobaczewski calls: “the human instinctive substratum.” To do so, would be to diagnose the system itself and thus represents a threat to psychopathic control. Science as it stands today is both the remedy and the disease, the latter manifesting as intellectual tyranny and corruption. But to explore the human condition and new fields of inquiry – not least the problem of ponerology – means to step outside what science considers sacrosanct, where boundaries are set not by true science but by the beliefs seeded within in its hallowed halls.

Historian and metaphysician Laura Knight-Jadczyk explains the corruption in this way:

“Psychopaths, once in positions of power and influence, forbid areas of science that they know are dangerous to their position. It’s a natural progression to apply this to the study of consciousness. They promote their own inner landscape (materialism) via science and project it onto humanity at large, effectively blocking the means by which they can be identified as abnormal. By creating such a semantic barrier, they can inhibit and shape our ‘genetic potential for diversification of thought and conduct’ in their direction of their choice. We lose the necessary tools with which to discover the true origins of pathology, and the true potentials within normal humanity. By denying the existence of the ordering principles of consciousness, they deny the existence of any potential order to which we can strive.” [1]

Nuclear Physicist and consciousness explorer Thomas Campbell explained this “semantic barrier” in the following terms:

Much of what was considered mystical a thousand years ago is considered science today and much of what is considered mystical today will be clearly understood by a future science. As our current accumulated objective knowledge reaches its limits and begins to dissolve into the seemingly unknowable, what lies beyond our presumed theoretical reach is defined as mystical. Such presumptions well up from our beliefs about objective reality; thus what appears to be mystical or unknowable from the view of Western culture simply reflects Western cultural beliefs and the limited understanding of contemporary science. […]

To the bacteria in the intestine the source of digested food descending from the stomach would seem mystical. The economic, social and physical circumstances and processes that indirectly result in a particular food being deposited in the stomach would be beyond mystical. The causal mechanisms that drive and order these apparently mystical events and processes are necessarily invisible to even the most brilliant intestinal bacteria. The forces and relationships that govern the growing of wheat as well as the making and marketing of bread falls beyond the bacterium’s ability to imagine, and therefore forever lies beyond the largest reality it can possibly comprehend. Do not be too surprised to find Homo sapiens in a similar situation. [2] 

This must also bring us back to the authoritarian personality and the problem of belief-traps where:

“… A human brain that is calcified in a belief system – believing it because their social group, peers, family, also believe it – literally experiences pain if they try to open their mind and think in a limitless and unbiased way. The same thing must happen to a person trying to understand the different social constraints that are accepted as perfectly normal in a different cultural group. The implications are truly enormous. It can also explain why science is so corrupt. This is, essentially, a look inside the brain of the authoritarian personality.” [3]

If the plasticity of the human brain and our societies are as creative and as flexible as many scientists believe, then it follows, that there is, as Knight-Jadczyk suggests: “… a genetic potential for diversification regarding thought and conduct born into every single human being, a potential that permits growth in any direction whatsoever, that can be inhibited and/or shaped by society. The question is how?” A perusal of Knight-Jadczyk’s vast body of work provides a rich library of possible answers.

Crucial to the development of a truly creative humanity forging networks of change must come from a science that is authentic and not afraid to push the boundaries. If it can maintain the highest standards necessary to embrace innovation and open minded research into new areas of exploration, we might hope to take the perquisite baby steps to the next stage of conscious evolution – though it may be somewhat non-linear in its manifestation.  We may remember the example of the International Panel for Climate Change (IPCC) and climate science as a whole, which exhibit obvious cases of bias, fraud and politicisation. Then of course, there is the belief in the scientific method or technique as an arm of humanist and transhumanist philosophy which incorporates some unsavoury views of the nature of humanity.

As a result, science is in crisis.

In Ocotber, 2013, CBC News ran a report which concluded that: “‘terrible science’ is polluting the global pool of knowledge.” The article summed up the problems scientific journals are facing which is a massive rise in fraudulent science. After an extensive investigation into the state of peer-reviewed scientific journals science journalist John Bohannon, who has a PhD in molecular biology and is a visiting scholar at Harvard University’s program in ethics and health: “concluded [that] ‘a huge proportion’ of the journals were not ensuring their papers were peer reviewed.” Worse still, the peer review event itself was often at fault. [4] 

The report gives the example of the Ottawa-based International Journal of Herbs and Medicinal Plants where “Bohannon submitted a revised version of the paper without correcting any of the flaws, it was accepted,” along with a: “scientific paper about a new anti-cancer compound [which] was accepted by more than half of 300 scientific journals it was submitted to in the past year, despite having obvious and serious scientific flaws.” If the peer-review procedure is failing then, as Bohannon stated, those with: “… fraudulent scientific credentials and publication records ‘are slowly filling university departments and government offices, making important science-based policy decisions.’” [5]

In the same month, Michael Hiltzik of the Los Angeles Times followed up with report on what scientists at the Thousand Oaks biotech firm Amgen had discovered, which was shocking. They had: “… set out to double-check the results of 53 landmark papers in their fields of cancer research and blood biology,” and at the end of their investigations: “… only six could be proved valid.” What the research team was by no means unique. The report mentioned a similar study from Bayer HealthCare in Germany who found “… that only 25% of published papers on which it was basing R&D projects could be validated, suggesting that projects in which the firm had sunk huge resources should be abandoned. Whole fields of research, including some in which patients were already participating in clinical trials, are based on science that hasn’t been, and possibly can’t be, validated.” Michael Eisen, a biologist at UC Berkeley and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute stated: “The thing that should scare people is that so many of these important published studies turn out to be wrong when they’re investigated further.” [6]

In December of the same year, The Economist added their voice to the concern that science was losing its way with a short piece highlighting the unreliability of science journals this time attacked by Randy Schekman, one of the 2013 crop of Nobel prize-winners for physiology or medicine. During the week of the prize-giving Dr. Schekman chose to announce that his laboratory he runs at he runs at the University of California, Berkeley: “… will boycott what he describes as ‘luxury journals’. By that he meant those commonly regarded as the most prestigious, such as Cell, Nature and Science. He levels two charges against such journals. The first is that, aware of their pre-eminence and keen to protect it, they artificially restrict the number of papers they accept—acting, as he put it in an interview with the Guardian, a British newspaper, like ‘fashion designers who create limited-edition handbags or suits…know[ing] scarcity stokes demand’.

The Doctor described their behaviour, as: “… more conducive to the selling of subscriptions than the publishing of the best research.” He went even further describing how all-compassing the problem appears to be, arguing that: “… science as a whole is being distorted by perverse incentives, especially the tyranny of the ‘impact factor’, a number that purports to measure how important a given journal is. Researchers who publish in journals with a high impact factor … can expect promotion, pay rises and professional accolades. Those that do not can expect obscurity or even the sack, a Darwinian system known among academics as ‘publish or perish’.” [7]

This was underscored by The American Society for Microbiology which recently questioned if modern science was “dysfunctional” stating that: “At the heart of the problem is an economic incentive system fuelling a hypercompetitive environment that is fostering poor scientific practices, including frank misconduct.” [8]

science1The Mark of Scientific Materialism


  “If the people hear voices dissenting from the scientific priesthood, the corporations immediately send out their scientists to harass and discredit the other scientists.  Their methods, results, and even their credentials are called into question.  Many have been denied tenure, lost their funding and even their jobs after publishing results casting doubt on the wisdom of genetic engineering.  This has created a climate of fear within the scientific community and confusion without.  The vast majority of scientists who are willing to speak out are either retired or of retirement age.  They have nothing to lose.  This is all too reminiscent of the historical relationship between the Pope, the kings & queens, the bishops & priesthood and the people.”

Dr Nancy Swanson, The Corruption of Science, The Institute of Science in Society.


The ponerisation of science was also covered at a more recent symposium on the reproducibility and reliability of biomedical research, held at the Wellcome Trust in April 2015. An article by Chief Editor Richard Horton of the respected medical journal The Lancet painted a very bleak picture indeed:

The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness. In their quest for telling a compelling story, scientists too often sculpt data to fit their preferred theory of the world. Journal editors deserve their fair share of criticism too. We aid and abet the worst behaviours. Journals are not the only miscreants. Universities are in a perpetual struggle for money and talent, endpoints that foster reductive metrics. National assessment procedures … incentivise bad practices. And individual scientists, including their most senior leaders, do little to alter a research culture that occasionally veers close to misconduct. Part of the problem is that no-one is incentivised to be right. Instead, scientists are incentivised to be productive. The conclusion of the symposium was that something must be done. The good news is that science is beginning to take some of its worst failings very seriously. The bad news is that nobody is ready to take the first step to clean up the system. [9]  [Emphasis mine]

This makes it very easy to understand why Big Pharma and the medical establishment is generally a friend to science, insofar as it directs innovation into a one-way system of share options and cash cows. It also explains why climate science suffers from the same systemic ailments and why the greed of corporatism determines the fate of scientific discoveries which do not conform to official culture. Anything that serves to disrupt that relationship – regardless of the possibility to positively change the fortunes of societies around the world – is entirely irrelevant. Just like any field of research dependent on grants and fearful of career obscurity, scientists play the game and keep mum.

Science is the slave to the current materialist paradigm, come what may.

The same can be said of academia, education and the mainstream media, indeed, any outgrowth of the official narrative which has entrapped our social systems.

Since we have so many of these reports surfacing in the MSM which focus on funding and the poor quality of science journals there is a much deeper reason why this discipline is undergoing a serious decline. Rupert Sheldrake offers some answers in his 2011 book: The Science Delusion (a veiled swipe at evangelical atheist Richard Dawkins’ The God Delusion) where he questions many of science’s basic ‘truths’, revealing them to be a mixture of assumption and ideologically-based conjecture. He lays out ten core beliefs of modern science, listing some of the fallacies that illustrate the “little picture” mentality and why, as it chases its own tail, it forces the rest of us to do the same:

1. Everything is essentially mechanical. Dogs, for example, are complex mechanisms, rather than living organisms with goals of their own. Even people are machines, “lumbering robots”, in Richard Dawkins’s vivid phrase, with brains that are like genetically programmed computers.

2. All matter is unconscious. It has no inner life or subjectivity or point of view. Even human consciousness is an illusion produced by the material activity of brains.

3. The total amount of matter and energy is always the same (with the exception of the Big Bang, when all the matter and energy of the Universe suddenly appeared).

4. The laws of nature are fixed. They are the same today as they were at the beginning, and they will stay the same forever.

5. Nature is purposeless, and evolution has no goal or direction.

6. All biological inheritance is material, carried in the genetic material, DNA, and in other material structures.

7. Minds are inside heads and are nothing but the activities of brains. When you look at a tree, the image of the tree you are seeing is not ‘out there’, where it seems to be, but inside your brain.

8. Memories are stored as material traces in brains and are wiped out at death.

9. Unexplained phenomena like telepathy are illusory.

10. Mechanistic medicine is the only kind that really works. [10]

What effects do such a system of beliefs have on mass consciousness? I suggest it acts as a prison as unyielding, dogmatic and valueless as any religious militancy. Moreover, it serves to reinforce a pathological disconnection to our supra-ancient spiritual heritage whilst providing the mechanisms to propagate and ingrain the idea that we are soul-less machines adrift in a cosmic ocean of dead matter – a perfect vision of the psychopath’s worldview. Thus, the post-Renaissance swing to extreme materialism in orthodox science has been a disaster for the development of human potential.

Neither Campbell nor Sheldrake can be termed pseudo-scientists without significant scientific pedigrees. One works for NASA as a Nuclear Physicist and the other a biochemist with a doctorate and double honours from Cambridge University.

It is possible to be a scientist and be open minded and to embody the “the spirit of enquiry.” Isn’t this the definition of true science?

This is where self-awareness, applied knowledge that is networked can become a true marriage of science and “Spirit”. After all, science has already proven that energy is not created and nor does it die, it merely transforms. So, what implications can we draw from this principle? If applied to the latest consciousness studies so far, it indicates that not only does consciousness live on after death but indicates a multi-dimensionality to the concept of Self also suggested by cutting edge science of quantum physics and long since believed in both ancient oral traditions, Western religions and the alchemists of 18th and 19th Centuries.

The above barely scratches the surface of what we are talking about here. It seems during the creative outpouring and frenzied activity of the Industrial Revolution and the later arrival of Darwinism and Malthusian thought of the 19th Century, a catastrophic fracture took place in the minds of man which took the innovations of Natural Selection and consequent discoveries, inverting them into simplistic applications which only told half the story and thereby reducing the human condition to a veritable machine that existed in an ontological abyss, devoid of meaning and purpose. Organisms, including man, were operating on instinct alone and a biological determinism which consigned the idea of a separate individual and collective consciousness to the bin of irrationality.  What if matter was conscious and conscious matter? That the illusion was that there was any separation?

Reductionist Science: An Ivory tower?

Such a hypothesis was discarded along with other potentially creative discoveries or they were exploited by psychopaths and integrated into their predatory worldview away from the knowledge of worlds beyond the five senses and the intelligence within Nature and Cosmos. Economics and politics were brought into the yoke of science along with those personalities which thrived on greed and exploitation. As such, it was inevitable that science would manifest this psychological contagion. Learning, discovery and the joy of creative networking for the good of humanity became subsumed into the leviathan that was the emerging military-corporate complex. Suppression and deflection was carried out by the same authoritarians and social dominators who continue to rise up the ranks of fundamentalist Islam, Orthodox Judaism and the Catholic Church. The religion of Science has the exact same spellbinders and schizoidal workers acting as thought police who brook no deviation from the text book of reductionism.

True science is the method by which humanity can escape from this endless treadmill of unnecessary suffering. It is the spirit of discovery where the accrued knowledge of experience provides wisdom to the coming generations. This fosters greater and greater discoveries that we can apply in order to know our “Spirit-Reality” and the ocean of multi-dimensional probabilities. The science of matter is all but understood. The science of the bigger cosmic picture and our place in the Universe is embryonic, just as the first esoteric scientists found that the cosmos is reflected in each and everyone of us. First we must step out of the reductive sandpit and embrace science beyond what materialists often call a reductio ad absurdum. This describes an approach which would see energy spent disproving such a proposition by showing that its inevitable consequences would be absurd. This is another example of how double speak and paralogical discourse determines the game, ensuring that at no point should science claim new ground, where it becomes personal, individual and worst of all that the networking of truth leads us to explore areas considered “para-normal” or “anomalous”.

The lessons of history also tell us that information, knowledge and the very essence of history from the Bible to World War II has been an exercise in suppression, distortion and disinformation. With the betterment of humanity playing a central part in their philosophies, inventions and ideologies, the most significant minds have been co-opted, assassinated, corrupted or their reputations destroyed so that the human gene pool remains not only amenable to psychopathy but fully embraces the slow march of total replacement, without so much as a whiff of awareness.

Now, THAT is scary.

The survival of the fittest and natural selection takes on a more sinister value in this context.  Since psychopaths have no capacity for higher thought and abstraction it is not hard to imagine what quality and perception such a survival would mean. Making sure the most diverse forms of intelligence, creativity and capacity for cooperative innovation in humanity are eliminated means that eventually the whole human organism suffers, and this is the legacy we are living with in the 21st Century: great expressions of power and predation with no concept of how it can be used to benefit humankind.

Imagine what could have been achieved if such a “Natural Selection” had not taken place? Imagine if science had been used to develop human societies and pursue practical solutions, freedom, creativity and explorations into the unknown for the benefit of all?  We would have no serious health issues, a truly creative education, a natural level of population with no recourse to brutal and deceitful depopulation practices, no environmental pollution, no cancer or auto-immune diseases, no despots, no pornografication of the mind-body complex, no poverty or homelessness and a proper relationship to the animal kingdom and Nature as a whole. Economies would be adjusted according to what works best for the nation, region and locality while free energy would redefine the very concept of globalisation.

The implications are so enormous it is difficult for such potential to fit inside our heads.

The question is, will the pendulum swung back to the centre?
