I've been over at MINDFUTURES reading Marcus T Anthony's Censoring the Future of Knowledge?
And this was my response
Marcus it seems to me a crisis's arising in science similar to that arising in the media/arts world over copyright and in politics over extending state monitoring and control of society.
Thanks to the emergence of cleverer and cleverer technology those who're supposed to protect and serve us're now no longer content to monitor our existences as closely as they like on every conceivable level storing every tiny detail until such time as they can find a use for it they're now in the process of bypassing the whole judicial process of detection and conviction and evolving algorithms designed to identify potential bad minds and evolve non-attributable anticpatory ad hoc remedies.
Similarly artists like Bono and JK Rowling who during their youth quite happily learned their trades by freely acquainting themselves with the works and ideas of their heroes and predecessors by such means as borrowing and lending cassette copies of their heroes' albums and books all the time poo-pooing the nonsense this constituted theft now not only use every legal means to pulverise anyone daring to even remotely taking advantage of them or theirs but they're seeking to extend into infinity the copyright of work no less derivative than William Shakespeare's but of infinitely inferior quality while all the time happily endorsing the development of technology which'll ultimately mean books'll no longer be readable or music playable unless you happen to have DNA identical to the original purchaser and even then useage'll be limited to a fixed period of time.
Under such a regime Bono and JK Rowling themselves'd never be capable of emerging never mind truly talented world shaking artists like Shakespeare.
Similarly at a time when technology means as you point out we essentially have both the highest numbered and most sophisticated population in the history of the world there're those who want to use the endless possibilities of all this new technology to prune back that sophistication by restricting the types of ideas the technology can access even though the sort of ideas they want to excise from Western if not indeed World Civilization're precisely those that fascinated the minds of individuals like Shakespeare Newton Darwin and Einstein.
And now with the advent of neural interfacing we must be approaching the endgame because if we can get past this need the affluent powerful and influential feel to protect themselves by controlling and restricting what the rest of us're allowed to think own or do then a truly golden age civilization capable of exponential evolution can emerge.
If we don't get past this stage a new Borg like hive mind robotic culture'll emerge instead which'll ban all independent thought or artistry as mental illness and we won't have to worry about upsetting the likes of Bono and JK Rowling by infringing their eternally precious copyrights because theirs'll be the only stuff legally allowed down our neural interfaces.
Over at Who Forted I'm reading Jasper T. Woodmans' Fox in the Hen House! The Ghastly Possession of the Nuns of Loudun
and this was my response
Jasper speaking from personal experience the bodily contortions of the nuns and the business with the tongues's almost certainly true.
During what I dubbed at the time my Three Stooges phase I spent several months getting twatted off the four walls of my bedroom by what felt like huge bolts of electricity [I've been electrocuted several times since I was a kid] and it always amazed me how it was possible to get thrown in the air and literally land upside down on my neck with a horrendous sounding crunch yet somehow never seemed to get injured.
At times I'd have the sense these bolts of 'electricity' or even lightning' were being launched at me from somewhere very far away but a lot of the time they seemed to go spontaneously go off inside me usually hurtling upwards from the direction of my groin to bust their way out my solar plexus and at the time it felt exactly like a physically real solid steel battering ram was try'n'o pound its way out my chest though the image it always conjured in my mind was that scene from Alien where it busts its way out John Hurts chest.
Sometimes though the flow seemed to reverse and I'd feel like the matter in my spine was liquefying to the point of boiling as things started hurtling in the opposite direction down my spine causing me to lose control of my limbs to the point of having my heels completely of their own accord somehow snap backwards and wallop the back of my head with such violent force it bleedin' well hurt I can tell y'u.
Actually I'd been having intermittent versions of milder version of the same sorts of bodily phenomena most of my life but during that Three Stooges stage circa the Millennium it got so bad it was scaring my kids and other family members so I allowed them to call an ambulance out in case I really was having a heart attack or some sort of brain seizure but after watching the heart monitor calmly going through its paces while simultaneously watching my chest and body covered in various frozen goods out the fridge buck and bronk and convulse like I was having a massive fit I stopped worrying.
I started worrying again though when during a later phase my tongue started leaping so far out my mouth turning almost black while making this horrendous braying sound it felt like I was being turned inside out. In fact it shot so far out my mouth even I could see this sort of cluster of tortured nerve ends forming the tongue's root vibrating insanely in front of my face like one of those party favours you blow in to make them uncurl and razz I had to allow my family to call out an ambulance again only to have this initially deeply alarmed looking ambulance guy suddenly screech "You're puttin' that on!" to which I could only respond in between explosive tongue convulsions "You cheeky fucking bastard the only reason I allowed them to call you out in the first place was because as you can see with your own eyes I'm gettin' me fuckin' innards turned inside out here and you're giving me bad theatrical reviews?"
Anyway I put this here because like that ambulance guy a lot of people'll read your Possessed Loudun Nuns piece and say ah they were puttin' it on.
Well I'm here to state they almost certainly weren't even right down to the demonic possession stuff but that's not the same thing as saying they were really were undergoing demonic possession.
Good footage and commentary on spraying over Abilene, TX with video of a tanker turning its spray nozzles on and off during flight. This of course is just par for the course now in any stretch of sky in the world. The chemtrail project now has to be considered one of the largest collective human endeavors in history, and as the narrator discusses the cat is well out of the bag, and public confrontation is probably inevitable.
"In 1990, the US Air Force Academy Chemistry Department used a course manual titled “Chemtrails.”
Lots of people call themselves skeptics nowadays. It's what you are supposed to be if your views are to be respected. The problem is, most skeptics are not skeptics. Everyone, whether they are aware of it or not, are biased. Our experience, our learning, our belief, and our ego, all sets the vantage point from which we judge the validity of other ideas.
The Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy defines skepticism beautifully here; "Philosophical views are typically classed as skeptical when they involve advancing some degree of doubt regarding claims that are elsewhere taken for granted." If we go back to the origins of the word, we go back to the ancient Greeks and a school of thought that nothing can really be known for sure, only questioned. Your typical. modern skeptic does not fit these definitions. Instead, they are often out to simply support the mainstream and accepted view of things, and debunk anything that questions it. These people are debunkers. They have a set agenda. They have already made up their minds, despite their claims to the contrary. When Graham Hancock asked Richard Dawkins if he would ever try something like Ayahuasca, he expressed interest, but in the end, said he would write off whatever he experienced as just another fascinating aspect of brain function. A true skeptic could not say that. A true skeptic would go into such an experience with as open a mind as possible, and examine all the possibilities of what they may be experiencing.
The other thing I find interesting about this clip (which you can find on Graham's YouTube), is Dawkins talking about the other experiment that he was a part of, and how he experienced nothing. I know other people that have very materialistic views of reality who have also told me they have never experienced anything even vaguely paranormal. This is a factor, of course, in our views of these things. If you have never had such an experience, then you may logically conclude other people are misinterpreting theirs. I suspect, however, that our individual brains have a lot to do with it. Perhaps, some people's brain's can tune to slightly different areas of reality, and some can't. Just like some can hear slight variations in sound where most people here an unchanging note. These things, however, influence what we think of as real. You cannot, however, claim to truly be a skeptic when you go into a situation knowing what you will think of it at the end. A true skeptic doesn't make pre-judgements.
I watched an Episode of a show called American Unearthed the other night. It focused on the discovery of a grave of a potentially 10-foot tall giant in Michigan. The host, who believes that the Kensington Stone is genuine, is looking for further proof of Nordic occupation of North America. Thus, he kept calling this a Nordic Giant. Last I knew, though, Nordic people did not generally grow to be 10 feet tall. Not only that, but there have been giants found all over North and Central America, which makes it unlikely they have any direct connection to Vikings. However, his perspective was shaded by what he was looking for, and it narrowed his possibilities. He at some points talks to another archaeologist who claims the Kensington Stone is a fake. When he disagrees and asks why he thinks it's a fake, said scientist states that since we know the Vikings weren't here, the stone must be a fake. This, of course, is not a skeptical approach, but really one that is somewhat dogmatic. He is a believer in what he has been taught, thus everything that falls outside that, is false.
It takes a lot for someone to break these types of biases. Their existence does not call for grand conspiracies or anything of the sort. It comes from human nature. We know what we have learned and experienced, and this creates our beliefs, and our ego protects them. We don't want to be wrong. When we touch on paranormal subjects, it may also be that the ideas frighten people, and thus enforce the bias of disbelief. When we look at the possibility of an advanced civilization existing in pre-history, that, too, can be frightening to some. If such a civilization existed, and was wiped out almost completely, which calls for some sort of cataclysm, then that suggests the same could happen to us! We want to feel safe, in control. We like to believe that the world as it is today, will always be like this, more or less, with any changes coming slowly and gradually.
Science, unfortunately, tends to follow dogmatic patterns, especially in certain disciplines. Defending those patterns starts looking like defending religious beliefs after a point. You are not allowed to question the Big Bang Theory, for example. Not only is ego and bias tied up in such things, but a lot of money. Research money that will stop coming if said theory were too thoroughly questioned and couldn't hold up. The scientific method, which is an excellent tool, gets misused, not necessarily intentionally, but misused none-the-less. Robert Schoch, as a accredited Geologist, definitively showing that the weathering on the Sphinx was caused by water erosion, specifically, rain erosion, pushed the date of it's origin WAY back beyond what Egyptologists were claiming. But they aren't geologists. They made assumptions based on, well, very little really, and the origin date of the Sphinx became dogma. When Schoch came along, he caused some big problems for them. Twenty years later, Egyptologists still have not altered their official dating of the Sphinx, facts be damned. Science should always follow facts, as best it can, and that is a clear example of where it does not. In 50 years Schoch should be thought of as a man who rewrote history, but now, now he is ignored by mainstream archaeology, and not because he is wrong, or doesn't have the facts on his side, but because they don't like what it means. It means they were wrong. It means that there was a culture advanced enough to build such a monument that they know nothing at all about. It means all their history of Egypt is missing something critical. So then, if something so major could slip by them, it follows to ask, what else are they wrong about? A true skeptic would say plenty.
The thing is, it's ok. We will never know everything. We can only grow and learn, and to keep our minds as open as possible, and as skeptical as possible, always questioning, because it makes life a whole lot more interesting. Some strong Gamma and X Rays from a particular point in space no more prove the existence of Black Holes than a disembodied voice on a digital recorder proves that we survive death. Both are possible explanations, but they are not proof of anything. Maybe that voice is a ghost, someone who died, trying to communicate with us, and maybe those peculiarly strong rays are from a Black Hole. And maybe not. Plasma creates those types of emissions, rapidly spinning. That doesn't mean a Black Hole is there. And maybe that voice is some kind of interference, or even something from somewhere else entirely masquerading as one of our dead. Only by questioning our base assumptions, and every new fact, and questioning again and again, will we make real progress. We will always have our own personal bias. The best we can do, is to question it. Be a skeptic. A real skeptic. Question everything. Never accept anything as unquestionable... because that is where Dogma starts, and progress stops.

DORNER: ROGUE COP OR ROGUE NATION? I AM NOT SURE
By Fahim A. Knight-El
There is a very high level of frustration inside the United States of America and nothing typified that frustration more than the recent Christopher Dorner’s incident, which in my opinion, was not totally about a rogue cop who consequentially found himself on the wrong side of the law; this fiasco also was not about some psychopath who suffered from some mental illness and went on a rampage of indiscriminately killing innocent people. The corporate media always systematically label these type individuals as insane in order to keep the masses in check by dismissing them as mere cuckoos who had no legitimate gripe in order to publically discredit their grievances, therefore controlling debate. This in turns falsely insures us as American citizens that this conduct was random and not rooted in a more extensive dissatisfaction. But there are many lessons to be drawn from the Dorner incident, it is a grim reminder that violence could crop up anywhere and at anytime (it is a reminder that no one is safe); often it could be unpredictable, but in Dorner ‘s scenario I believe the Los Angles Police Department (LAPD) arrogance led them eventually down a deadly path.
Many sympathized with Dorner because it appeared that he unjustly lost his job and was terminated as a police officer for essentially becoming a whistleblower and had violated the police blue wall of silence. Some might even argue based on the way these chain events played out; did he do the right thing because in doing the perceived right thing, it cost him his good name, profession, reputation and ultimately cost him his life. Dorner stated: “I stood up for what was right but unfortunately have dealt with the repercussions of doing the right thing and now losing my name and everything I ever stood for”. We have witnessed my corporate and government whistleblowers in the last 10 to 15 years win huge civil suits by exposing government and/or corporate lawbreaking and deception by revealing hidden plots aimed at consumers or misuse of the public trust relative to government.
Yet, many refused to characterize Christopher Dorner's scenario as a case of a whistleblower; they justify this by characterizing Dorner’s behavior as being part of the angry black man’s syndrome, but this only denotes denial which rest on a foundation of racism. But instead of LAPD and Los Angles city and county government embracing Dorner as a whistleblower they allowed for systems of internal retaliation to take place by turning a blind eye, which this eventually led to the system failing Dorner in which many law enforcement officers have taken a covert oath never to 'snitch' another fellow officer out even if witnessing them breaking the law.
I think in Dorner's incident there were a lot of lawbreaking and compromises of the LAPD grievance procedures and policies, which ultimately led to Dorner taken the law into his own hands. No. I do not agree with the Talking Heads and government assessment that Dorner was crazy—this man in my opinion was pushed to the limits and found himself backed up against the wall—I think his action was a direct result of betrayal, racism, failed LAPD personnel procedures and a quest for justice found Dorner outside of the law. I truly think he did everything possible to legally remedy his situation, but in this system, there is an invisible rulebook and if you play by the rules there is a system of rewards, if you do not play by the rules—Dorner appeared to be on the punishment end.
However, I think looking back LAPD, perhaps wish they would have internally done some things differently (hindsight is truly 20/20 vision). This is what could happen when we allow systemic practices of institutionalize racism to fester and continue to go unchecked and unaddressed. Dorner by all accounts was an upstanding citizen who had served as an officer in the United States arm forces (ex-veteran) and was once a sworn Los Angles Police officer (I think both of these jobs as a professional soldier speaks somewhat to this man’s credibility). He was well trained as a military soldier and as a police officer who in the end demonstrated the type of military skill set that he had acquired and used his training to kill and evade police.
Dorner stated: “I’m not an aspiring rapper, I’m not a gang member, I’m not a dope dealer, I don’t have multiple babies momma’s. I am an American by choice, I am a son, I am a brother, I am a military service member, I am a man who has lost complete faith in the system, when the system betrayed, slandered, and libeled me. I lived a good life and though not a religious man I always stuck to my own personal code of ethics, ethos and always stuck to my shoreline and true North. I didn’t need the US Navy to instill Honor, Courage, and Commitment in me but I thank them for re-enforcing it. It’s in my DNA”. Perhaps the lives that were taken by Dorner could have been prevented and spared, if only someone in LAPD brass chain would have seriously listened to this man grievances and followed through with his complaints with objectivity, non partial and without the bias, which appeared to be evident of a good ole boy and good ole girl system that existed inside of the LAPD.
I am no expert on labor law or employment grievance procedures, but in my life and experiences, I have had my share of disagreements with those in human resources relative to fighting discrimination and fighting for better working conditions for those who were considered laborers and lowly wage earners. They have the ability to stack the deck against you and often poor people do not have the financial resources to mount a comparable legal defense against hired corporate guns (justice in the United States is often determined by money, it is surely not blind). This article was not written to defend Christopher Dorner's behavior; I do not condone violence in the workplace or outside the workplace, but rather to examine and assess employment procedures relative to employment grievances in lieu of the aftermath of the Dorner's incident. Moreover, this should be the real discussion taken place inside the LAPD in particular, and the United States in general. Yet, often these people go right back to their same disposition before the tragedy took place and no serious review and oversight is done to ensure this type incident never occurs again.
However, I am not optimistic about the political, economic and social course that America has chosen to take and I believe that these types of incidents in the near future are only going to increase. I hope that you did not think that Drone Warfare, the National Defense Authorization Act, the Patriot Act, Anti-Terrorism laws, etc., were for the other guy (international terrorist); these things have been put in place to contain social rebellion inside the United States of America and not for some overseas so-called Al-Qaeda terrorist (the real terrorist sits in the White House and he is much more dangerous than those deemed terrorist by the West)).
They are preparing for you and me and perhaps it is difficult for you to believe that Martial Law is right around the corner. This is why, there is a rush to get guns off the streets and put forth new gun control legislation because of public apathy and disillusionment, which will ultimate lead the people into a direct confrontation with the State (for those who do not know what the State mean, it refers to the United States Government). This is the real reason why President Obama and some members of the United States Congress are pushing for comprehensive gun control laws and are quietly and covertly looking to slowly overturn the Second Amendment Right to the United States Constitution (disarm the people) we should not let this happen—I do support the National Rifle Association (NRA) on their quest to fight for the Second Amendment Right.
Just think about this, local, state and federal government agencies have these campaigns to buy back guns, but yet, in the inner cities of the United States the economic crisis has become desolate and hopelessness grips those who have become the expendable 'have nots'. I am more interested in buying back our freedom and fighting for our liberty against these elected dictators and tyrants that sit in the White House and in corporate America. President Obama has played a big game on black people and white liberals, as well and I am far from being a FOX news conservative and/or a Tea Party member and we have given this pawn a blank check to masquerade as though he is the champion of the poor. Obama has not paid any dues to be spoken of in the same breath of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and/or Minister Malcolm X and he definitely did not deserve the Nobel Peace Prize. What has he done other than carried out the reactionary and oppressive agenda of the globalist? I have even heard Minister Louis Farrakhan attempting to spare this traitor; if you 'Negroes' are to afraid to criticize Obama, then stand back and allow me the privilege (the late comedian Bernie Mac would say, I aint scared of you N----).
I might be digressing a bit, but these thoughts are coming to me, as I write this article about Christopher Dorner and it may connect or it may not connect. President Obama has used the U.S. Government agent provocateur Reverend Al Sharpton as his black henchman and bulldog to keep disagreeable black folk in check (but I am one of those 'Negroes' who are off the chain and I am not willing to sell my soul to the highest bidder and I surely do not dance to the tune of Reverend Al Sharpton). I do not agree with anything the establish 'Negro' leaders say and do; many of them typifies the term modern day slave (they are sellouts and Uncle Toms) and they have the job to keep us 'Negroes’ on the modern plantation and if you ‘Negroes’ do not know it by now, Reverend Al Sharpton is about lining his pockets with some money and keeping you 'Negroes’ looking up in the sky for that Mystery God that does not exist and praying for the false image of that white Jesus to return to the earth to save your black asses (the only interest Sharpton has is his own).
You all are crying over some new installment of a pope and for over 600 years there has not been one black pope and it is our ancestors in Kush (Ethiopia) that established the original Christian Church—I have told you this before that all the prior white popes actually bowed and prayed to a Black Madonna and child (Mary was your mother and it’s you, the Nubian Jesus they pray and worship in secret). Bob Marley said free your minds from mental slavery; none but ourselves can do this.
I am not a social scientist, but as poverty increases in the United States in particular, no jobs and ultimately no tangible future for the American people can be foreseen (do not blame me for this forecast, I am just the messenger) things are only going to worsen. I live in America and the black community and there is no doubt gun violence in some of the larger cities and smaller cities are at epidemic levels. These guns in particular, in the black community were systematically put there by the enemy as part of the genocidal plot and they have made dope the number one commodity in the black community—these drugs and gun traffickers are often members at the highest levels of the United States Government (president, ambassadors, congresspersons, law enforcement, dignitaries, business leaders, etc., they are the ones that controls the dope and gun trade).
We do not own the ships, boats, airline carriers and we definitely do not control the airspace and the U.S. Ports; this business is to lucrative and to vital to U.S. economic interest for them to worry about the social plight of the expendable victims. I personally live in a right to work state, which means workers have no rights when it comes termination, equal protection, labor protection, etc. The 2008 induced economic meltdown, which rearranged the United States and Global Economy, also impacted the labor arrangement and not to forget the devastating effect of dismantling of Labor Unions, which has left the U.S. labor force powerless and disillusioned (this induced crisis diminished the little rights labor had enjoyed).
They systematically outsourced U.S. jobs to Mexico and the Far East, it has been this phenomenon that has left people disillusioned and feeling helpless and betrayed. The weakening of U.S. labor was directly impacted by a diminishing job market and the few employment opportunities have created an inequitable supply and demand scale relative to labor and employment opportunities in which this paradigm has empowered corporate entities and capitalist business enterprises to the detriment of an obsolete labor force that in reality has out lived its purpose (corporate America and the business sector can now be highly selective and cheap because they have a huge unemployed pool to draw from).
Thus, since the 2008 so-called economic decline, it tip the job market scale in total favor of big business in which they understood that job demands were high and unlike anytime in American history there is a huge labor force that had mortgages, student loans, automobile loans and various aspects of consumer debt that was undergirding life styles built on earning capacities that were being kept afloat by debt (this has become the impetus of creating the new 21ST century slave). The 2008 economic meltdown showed our vulnerability as a glutting class of consumers and we had lost our will to be producers and had settled on being consumers which has created our present predicament.
The Los Angles cop who felt that his personnel grievances were mishandled by the Los Angles Police Department, Human Resources, his superiors and Internal Affairs, as well as by rank and file members on the Los Angles Police Department were all part of a system of betrayal. I think many of us who have worked in corporate America, perhaps have filed grievances and/or sought internal remedies to situations that may have arisen on the job. I think many of us of have had various types of incidents at our place of employment where you may have felt your rights as an employee had been violated by a so-called superior and/or management staff. Thus, most jobs provide the employee with a personnel manual which outlines the employment policies and procedures—this will ordinarily include topics like employment performance, scheduling, pay hikes and raises, absentees and tardiness, promotions, definitions of sexual harassment, violence in the work place, vacation, policy on substance abuse and drugs, etc., and a host of other policies that is put in place to govern employee's conduct. I think the discipline policy is one of the most important procedures because it gives the employee their internal right to due process relative to charges, filings and hearings.
Many of us in 1991 witness the Rodney King incident where a majority white police officers responded to a traffic stop and a high speed police chase ensued, but who knew that as this incident unfolded that it would make history because it eventually led to one of the largest social rebellions in recent American history. There is no need to totally rehash the Rodney King incident, but what was interesting was how we got to that space and time; an innocent bystander video taped the LAPD brutally and violently beating Rodney King who was on the ground in a defensive posture and his posture was definitely not one who was resisting arrest (once the smoke cleared King’s face looked like he had been in a 15 round heavy weight fight with Muhammad Ali and it was clear evidence of police brutality).
This video beating was given to various news outlets and the first thing the Talking Heads and the law enforcement experts tried to do were to convince the American people that they did not see what they thought they saw (this primary information—raw video footage of a savage assault being carried out police officers was being denied by LAPD). They tried to convince the American people that Rodney King was resistance arrest as he laid on ground while officers savagely used their batons to beat and kicked him like he was an animal as he rolled over trying absorbed the violent blows the best as he could. Also, there were other law enforcement officers that swore to serve and protect who stood idly by and did nothing while they watch their other fellow officers break the law. If memory serves me correctly there were a couple of African American officers on the scene who did nothing to stop their white fellow officers from committing this crime against King. This eventually became a high profile case involving a petty criminal who had a lengthy criminal history and was not a choir boy (Rodney King was a dope fiend and an alcoholic, but despite his 'bad boy' history he was a human being). The United States Constitution guarantees each American equal protection under the law and due process under the law.
I think the Los Angles Police Department prior to and since the Rodney King incident has had some unresolved concerns relative to a culture of racism and police brutality aimed at blacks and Latinos. Dorner stated this in his "Manifesto": "The department has not changed since the Rampart and Rodney King days. It has gotten worse. The consent decree should never have been lifted. The only thing that has evolved from the consent decree is those officers involved in the Rampart scandal and Rodney King incidents have since promoted to supervisor, commanders, and command staff, and executive positions". . ."Dorner goes on to state: This department has not changed from the Daryl Gates and Mark Fuhrman days. Those officers are still employed and have all promoted to Command staff and supervisory positions. I will correct this error. Are you aware that an officer (a rookie/probationer at the time) seen on the Rodney King videotape striking Mr. King multiple times with a baton on 3/3/91 is still employed by the LAPD and is now a Captain on the police department? Captain XXXX is now the commanding officer of a LAPD police station (West LA division)".
It appears that sensitivity and diversity training pertaining to law enforcement officers still is not enough to sensitize some white law enforcement officers into understanding the culture, and race/ethnic backgrounds of non-Caucasians who might be confronted with violating the law. Moreover, many non-white suspects and defendants are suspicious of white law enforcement authority figures because of the lack of trust that exist between the two races and cultures and often there is a feeling that law enforcement does not have their best interest at stake—these historical and cultural differences creates tension and often time this leads to African Americans and Latinos having a higher percentage of arrest records and eventually higher percentages of convictions. I am very sensitive about policing because it is a very tough job that carries a lot of stress and there are many more good cops than there are bad cops who truly have taken the oath to protect and serve.
Lastly, may be somewhere in the deep recesses of LAPD minds the Dorner incident will force them to implement some real changes and it is sad that it has taken the loss of human life to get people talking about fairness and how to make the work place better for all; there will always be disagreeable grievances in the workplace, but how we handle them will determine how successful society is in minimizing violence and anti-social behavior from over-spilling into the broader society. There were many lessons that came out of the Dorner incident and I do not think they can just be brushed under the rug. If we do nothing Dorner will revisit us at some point.

What a cosmic joke.
While various groups're facing off over who're the delusional parties in matters of science politics religion philosophies art music ways of life belief systems etc etc events in Cyprus're exposing the brutal truth our political leaders've forgotten they're supposed to be our elected SERVANTS not our feudal overlords and continued belief in the sacred inviolability of mere concepts like money property and laws is more delusional than wondering whether there's such things as ghosts UFOs cryptids etc etc.
And the fact the British government for instance're talking about helping out British Squaddies hit by all the account sequestering rather than roaring "NO!" only goes to show it's a card they'll play themselves at some stage.
Many people find the whole idea proposterous reality's only a construct.
Maybe though they're now beginning to realise how civilization itself's merely such a construct the continued existence of which depends on the collective will of EVERYONE the main reason our overlords're more nervous about the large scale strategic pruning and relocation of past eras apparently envisaging a program of beguilement entwined with anxiety and willpower breaking underpinned by the constant background implication of brutal suppression failing all else.
This's the main reason why we need every shade of believer/unbeliever in every conceivable realm of belief/unbelief because the moment one lot starts thinking their vision of a better world's so superior it justifies the forced conversion or removal of those who beg to differ's the moment people start getting splattered all over the place by human bombs or remote controlled drones.
If though you've still to be persuaded how virtual your existence really is set yourself wondering for instance who really owns the peripherals to your existence such as 'your' car with I've Got The Power (Snap! 1990) by Dave over at Trade With Dave http://tradewithdave.com/?p=13092 and find out why it justly gets what Dave calls an absurd amount of traffic.
TDG members are very familiar with Harvard psychiatry professor John Mack and his groundbreaking inquiry into the phenomena of alien abduction. This congenial little documentary from last Fall is just something I thought might be handy for passing around to others who are new to the subject. This is not a new documentary, but I had never before seen it posted to Youtube.
Continuing on where I left on the last post, I know that I should've written more about the UMMO mythos, given how it's not a particularly popular topic among the English-speaking UFO enthusiasts.
To anyone really interested in the subject, finding information on UMMO online won't be difficult. Suffice it to say the 'corpus' of the case relies mostly on a number of letters that were sent to several recipients accross mainly Spain & France, and a famous b/w series of photographs of an alleged flying saucer taken in San José de Valderas (Spain) in 1967.
The authenticity of the San José de Valderas photos has also been put into questions by several researchers. In the 1990s a Spanish UFOlogists by the name of José Luis Jordán Peña came out & claimed to have orchestrated the fraud, and that he wrote & sent the letters, yet even prior to that many UFOlogists didn't take the UMMO affair seriously.
But even Jacques Vallee was schocked by the famous UFO landing case of Voronezh (Russia) in 1989, because the witnesses reported & drew the same UMMO symbol, which was already associated with a fraud in the mind of most serious researchers. Vallee alluded it to the self-negating nature of the phenomenon, but it's important to point out that the giant humanoids witnessed in that Russian park 24 years ago were completely unlike the 'Nordic' appearance ascribed to the 'Ummites' in the 1960s.
My interest in UMMO was rekindled by a book written by Juan José Benítez in 2007. In it, Benítez made the compelling case that the symbol has been observed in many independent sightings all around the world --and BEFORE the UMMO case became famous in the 1960s. Also, the symbol can be found in different ancient cultures --like the astrological symbol of Uranus, which I mentioned on my previous post.
So my current position is that, although the typewritten letters are likely hoaxes --and Jordán Peña may or may not have received help from some intelligence agency to carry out the deception for them-- I still think the UMMO symbol is authentic, and might become relevant once again in the future.
...Or, I may be just full of shit. It's up to you to decide ;)
It is astonishingly easy to hypnotize crowds of people as the above video so startlingly demonstrates. The stage hypnotist Keith Barry entrains about 85 per cent of a movie theater audience to believe it has just seen the funniest movie ever when in fact it is entirely suggestion and mass hypnosis at work. Even more amazing is that a movie was never shown in the first place, yet the crowd interviewed outside the theater afterwards is in stitches about funny the "movie" was.
I have not been able to find this sequence in English, but even though this Youtube is in Spanish is it easy to see what happened. About 15 percent of the audience does not "go under" and is told by Barry to sit tight while the experiment on the rest of the audience is allowed to unfold. It is theorized that introverts are more difficult to entrain while extroverts are more likely to "go with the flow" and be entrained.
Barry's TV series "Deception" airing on The Discovery Channel is one of the most fascinating things I have ever seen on television because it demonstrates in a variety of ways how suggestible the human mind really is. Barry often points out that fear, stress, and confusion are the pathways to suggestibility which is why the current political regime is constantly hammering the population with those memes while attempting to insert its messages and triggers into mass mind. Keith Barry is indirectly performing a valuable service by hinting obliquely at how manipulators do what they do.
Reversing the Mental Side Effects of the New World Order
"Contrary to those who prefer to demonize anyone taking a strong stand against the globalist one world government's plans, fascism, and tyranny; it is one of the most important ways to fight what is being scientifically proven to be one of the greatest mental afflictions humanity faces.
Neuro-imagining studies demonstrate the effects words can have on the brain. Studies show that exposure to various negative words and visuals and stimulus factors can have a deteriorating effect on the brain. Fear has a deteriorating effect on the brain, as does the threat of tyranny, fascism, ‘terrorists’, war, financial collapse, catastrophes, outer space threats and all the engineered fear and gloom the corporate media and Hollywood regularly bombard us with today. Knowing the deteriorating effect words and images have on the brain doesn’t stop government from using negative words and fear-generating tactics in conjunction with their media to bombard people with cognitive weapons of mind destruction.
Conversely the effect of positive words are known to us; humans equally respond to positive meaningful words, images and other physiological techniques that induce relaxation, potentiate harmony, warmth, calmness and overall mental comfort.
Our fund of knowledge about how humans operate makes us all the more responsible for addressing and exposing the mass manipulation of people by government, the media and Hollywood (Government Media, Hollywood Complex). This complex is now clearly seen to be pushing the masses into a mental direction that is opposite and contrary to what each human wants deep down inside. No one wants to see war or be involved in war, no one wants to think they are in danger that only the government can save them from. This is a very fearful place to live mentally.
The GMH-Complex is setting aside the most important essence of humanity, our capacity to create ideas, to reach for our individual dreams and to thrive, and they are replacing it with a collective conscious of fear, gloom and subservience. It is placing humanity in a situation where its mental comfort does not come from within but instead it comes from knowing that their government cares about them so much and is looking out for their safety and protection. This GMH-Complex engineered state of mind also requires that all citizens be alert at all times and ‘alert’ implies a state of vigilant awareness and anxiety and encourages paranoia and fear. This paranoia and fear is encouraged in their movies and mass media messages.
Apparently we are to believe the government is concerned for your physical well being and that your mental and spiritual well being is not important. This notion would be true if we were only physical beings. The greater part of us, it turns out is human consciousness. Something not experienced is out of sight and out of mind like it doesn’t exist. Consciousness is what we are and it is inseparable to the human experience.
Being that we are consciousness we owe it to ourselves to bring ourselves to a place where we can all thrive as human beings. We all seek to be who we want to be, to have meaningful experiences and to accomplish that thing we want to do that is at the core of what we value the most. This is certainly a significant purpose for our existence on Earth and I can think of no other greater purpose.
This purpose of thriving suffers at the hand of antagonistic elements which exist on Earth. A careful, sincere, and simple retrospective analysis shows repeatedly that government and its media complex (GMH) works hard at keeping every individual person in a state of fear, anxiety, negativity and readiness for tribulation. This observation should be stated and acknowledged so that we can make a focused effort to implement solutions for this human challenge.
Let’s ask ourselves what we can do as individuals to make this world a better place. One good place to start is to tune government off including their media and its mouthpieces. You will never know how peaceful your world can be until you tune the GMH Complex off. Give it a try and listen for the silence. Studies show the benefits of meditation, prayer, images of smiles, peaceful scenarios and positive words can have on humans. We know the results of these positive stimuli and the positive effects it has on other components of our humanity. Let’s consider the knowledge we are accumulating about who we are and use it in a meaningful way. Let us not allow our brains to accept one positive scientific fact (about the positive effects some things have on humanity) while ignoring another (the negative and detrimental effect fear, doom, gloom, lies, war, and propaganda have on humanity).
I choose to acknowledge what we know about humanity and apply practical, wise, and logical problem-solving solutions to the problems we face; problems of consciousness deterioration, conscious existential intimidation, and existence in the state of fear and anxiety. So unless these cognitive manifestations and expressions are to be ignored and unless our consciousness is unimportant and unless cognitively oppressive governments are to be given priority over our very conscious existence, then I’ll assume that there is no miscalculation here and my logic and reason is sound. Let us then act upon this simple knowledge about whom we are and let our actions show that we understand these principles.

[WARNING: Crazy rambling below]
By now everyone & his dog has watched or heard the news that a new Pope has been elected by a rather expeditious conclave. And contrary to the expectations of many, the cardinals elected a man from Latin America who chose --rather fittingly in light of the circumstances-- to be known as Francis I.
The fact that Jorge Mario Bergoglio is a member of the Jesuit order, is something that I'm sure will keep the students of St. Malachy's prophecies in overdrive in the days to come --The Superior General of the Society of Jesus is unkindly known as the 'Black Pope'.
Even the new 'vicar of Christ' during his 1st speech jokingly said that the cardinals had gone to the "end of the world" to choose a bishop --geographically speaking, of course...
But as I was following the news delivered at Twitterspeed, the 1st thing that came to my head was "is there some numerological/astrological significance that the new Pontiff was chosen on 13/03/13?"
Turns out there is (I think).
Thanks also to Twitter I learned that on a day like this, 232 years ago, the planet Uranus was discovered by astronomer William Herschel. Compelled by a discussion started at my friend Mike Clelland's blog --in which Woody Allen's film The Sleeper was mentioned, which prompted me to write the famous quote from Frank Herbert's Dune "the sleeper must awaken" (hold that in mind)-- I googled the astrological significance of the planet Uranus:
"Uranus is known in astrology as the "Awakener," [emphasis mine] since its aspects and transits bring sudden changes and shocks. It rules Aquarius, the quirky innovator, and sometimes these upheavals are a necessary break from restrictions in favor of a more liberated path."
But there's more: Turns out Bergoglio became a priest on December 13th, 1969. Another 13 in this man's life.
Yet the thing that made MY head go into overdrive is because somehow --don't ask me why-- I feel this is all connected to the controversial UMMO affair.
Perhaps it's just the similarities between the UMMO symbol & the astrological sibil of Uranus. But I think it's also the fact that the 1st book I ever read about UMMO --way before it was 'debunked'-- had been written by an Argentinian. The author's name escapes my mind though...
From a semiological point of view, my own personal interpretation of the UMMO symbol is of two separate worlds or realities --represented by the 2 curves or hyperbola-- which are somehow able to 'touch' through a threshold thanks to a third connecting element. The way interpret it --again, don't ask me why-- is that this represents a future event.
Other interesting synchro of the day: the ALMA radio telescope array --the largest in the world-- was unveiled in the Atacama desert, in Chile --Chile & Argentina are neighboring countries.
Oh, and 'Alma' literally means 'soul' in Spanish ;)
So what does this all mean? I haven't the foggiest, but I had to write this down anyway :P

[UPDATE]: Pheew! the MU guys went easy on me during ep. 910 *relieved*
In the meantime, check out Loren Coleman's thoughts re. the Ultimate Black Pope. Turns out jokers --that would be me-- can get predictions right once in a while ;)
When it developed that the first Pope was a Jesuit, I (@CryptoLoren) then tweeted this: "Before #Pope named @red_pill_junkie's humorous comment ab #GuyFawkes mask was prophetic. Jesuits were associated with the Gunpowder Plot. #V"
[UPDATE II]: Tim Boucher proposed yet another interesting link between Bergoglio & the UMMO affair: the wolf.
In their infamous typewritten letters, the Ummites told their recipients that their planet orbitted a star our astronomers know as Wolf 424, part of a binary system approximately 14.2 light years away.
One of the most famous stories about St. Francis of Assisi --the saint in whose honor Bergoglio chose his papal name-- is that of the wolf of Gubbio, a terrible man-killer that was peacefully tamed by the grace of the future leader of the Franciscan order.
And of course, there's also the famous Capitoline Wolf (Lupa Capitolina), or she-wolf of Rome, which nursed the twin brothers Romulus & Remus and later became the symbol of the city.
What do these inter-species unions mean?
