BIG MONEY AND PUBLIC CONSUMPTION SCIENCE
This is probably one of the most important articles ever to appear in The Daily Bell, or for that matter, anywhere else, but we’ll get to why I think this to be the case, after the article itself:
No, Economist (Magazine): The Real Problem of Big Science is Big Banking
The Daily Bell has put its finger on a central philosophical problem of modern “big science,” namely, the promotion and evolution of a kind of “public consumption” science in each of the scientific disciplines that have, as their underlying connective meme, the theme of scarcity and zero-sum games, with “winners and losers.” And this meme, in turn, has, as its underlying assumption, a commitment to philosophical materialism as the be-all and end-all explanatory paradigm into which all “science” must fit or conform. I think, as I compose this blog, specifically of the work of biologist, Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, and its simple posing of questions that challenge those exclusively materialist assumptions with his hypothesis of a “morphogenetic field.” Dr. Sheldrake asks a simple question: how is it that two groups of a species, completely isolated from each other, will transmit information to each other with no apparent means of physical contact? How does one group of a species on an isolated island transmit a solution or learned behavior, to a group of the same species on another island, and having no physical contact with it? This is not a merely hypothetical or rhetorical question on Dr. Sheldrake’s part. It is something that has been observed. For his part in forming the question and offering a tentative conclusion – a kind of immaterial biological version of photon or quantum entanglement, but on a much more macro-scale of entire population groups – he has been villified, attacked, spurned, and in general, treated less than courteously by many of his scientific colleagues.
He has, in short, challenged the materialist assumption reigning in much of biology. And so it goes across the board.
Indeed, as a general statement, it could be asked why non-materialist assumptions or approaches seem so often to be challenged by “big science” and hence, more importantly, by Big Bank Money? Is there a connection between the two? The behavior of major money interests in promoting such memes in science raises the question of whether they are interested in real science, or only that science that tends to support their own cosmology, a cosmology designed to reinforce their monopoly on the creation of monetized debt.
I would, indeed, suggest that this is the real and deeply hidden connection, and it is an historical one. I have written often about what I have called the “Topological Metaphor of the Medium” and more recently about its almost limitless creation of “debt-free” information. As I wrote recently in Financial Vipers of Venice, we find the financial elites of the day busily engaged in the suppression of this version of the metaphor, and the substitution, in its place, either of limitless creation of fiat monetized debt, with all the sacrificial systems and ideologies connected with it in the suppression of the individual person and his or her creativity(the thing of real value), or the substitution of systems of bullion-based finance, again in an effort to impose limits and zero-sum games.
I would respectfully suggest, then, that The Daily Bell is indeed on to something, but would suggest that the roots of it go much deeper. Not for nothing did medieval and Renaissance Venice become the home of the original Malthusianism, and the first (wildly inaccurate) estimates of the “maximum carrying capacity” of the population sustainable by planet Earth, but also this corrupt oligarchical republic was the home to the suppression of that Metaphor, and its advocates, by the most brutal of methods (like being burned alive). It was home, too, to the original “cult of materialism”, in its dogged defense and use of Aristotle. For those aware of the story the Daily Bell is so aptly exposing in this article, the story goes back, not just to JP Morgan’s suppression of Tesla, but at least as far as the Middle Ages, and to the life and death struggle that Venice waged against the re-emergence of that Metaphor. It won that battle, but only temporarily… but that’s another story.

This is an outstanding revelation of how the spirit world dimension interacts with ours here among the living. Kim Russo is a fabulous medium proven reliable time and time again. Her show "The Haunting Of...." fill in the blank - usually some well known personality - has become my favorite paranormal reality show lately. Russo does not allow negative spirit situations to automatically be interpreted as being demonic. Instead, she confidently stands her ground and fleshes out why a spirit has become a problem haunter, and then gently ushers the spirit to the light. Her outcomes are nearly always positive in the end. In this case she is visiting a famously haunted ancient castle with actor Charles Schaughnessy who as a boy visited the castle once a year with his family. There was one large room that no one was allowed to go into it because of the violence of the spirit sequestered inside who as it turns out was a rapacious business man from the 17the century who had poisoned some of his competitors at his own dining table and done who knows what all else - a sort of 17th century mafioso. As Russo and Schaughnessy gradually tease out the spook was afflicted with fear of going to Hell for his deeds and therefore had never had the courage to "go to the light" which is a common situation with bad ghosts. After being urged to move on with the guarantee that love and forgiveness awaits even such dastardly people the spirit flies up and away and a centuries old haunting is brought to an end.
Equally fascinating is listening to Russo describe Schaughnessy's deceased relatives in startling detail as they flock around to be of service and give the exorcism courage. Schaughnessy was just blown away and brought to tears by the detail Russo came up with - it far exceeded anything she might have sleuthed out on her own beforehand, but just watching Russo as I have done for a couple of years now I cannot imagine she would commit such frauds anyway. She is a wonderful human being with an extraordinary gift and a huge heart, and this is one of the best episodes. Anyone claiming a right to an opinion about such matters needs to watch the pinnacle of modern investigations before passing judgement one way or another. This is not flaky Victorian parlor stuff.
This musical genre was somewhat unknown to me though it certainly owes a lot to Sun Ra, but the originality is impressive, and it sounds at times as if they might be on the cusp of a truly new popular music. New musics have their own unique psychology, and until that is worked out and agreed upon by a batch of listeners it doesn't take off. This could take off though. They feel close to a breakthrough.
This has become my favorite paranormal TV show. Amy Allen is just a phenomenal ghost psychic who is really good at explaining the mechanics of haunting and motives of spirits. She does marvelous work explaining problematic hauntings and then coming up with techniques for rescuing the situation though there are some times when she just counsels the afflicted to get out of the house and don't look back. Allen is very practical and no nonsense. She "talks to the dead" as if it were not much different from talking to the living, and she is very irritated with ghost busting teams who repeatedly ransack famous "haunted homes" - a situation she likens to putting people in zoos - dead people that is, or rather people who have crossed over but not as far as they should have.
Did anyone here happen to catch some episodes of "Cursed" on The Biography Channel? (clips above)
I fancy myself somewhat hardened to paranormal reality shows, but this series got to me sometimes. I actually left in the middle of one of the episodes feeling like I was getting very suggestible which is partially how some curses work. The interviews with the unfortunates who had been cursed were quite creepy as they gave the impression of being lost in a hall of mirrors from which they might never escape, and I mean never. Some of these poor people were permanently caught in calamity and mishaps from which no one including accomplished healers could extricate them. I came away from this series with one overarching lesson - do not piss off anyone who really knows what they are doing with curses.
So, if NASA or someone could create a very realistic 3D immersive simulator of the Space Station circling the earth with very crisp surround graphics and very realistic motions mimicking those of the Space Station would the experiencer experience the "overview effect" or does the effect also require the sensation of weightlessness? Is the effect intellectual, or does it have as much to do with weightlessness as any philosophical epiphanies or intellectual vistas? Perhaps weightlessness itself gives a very, very unique intellectual and spirit detachment somewhta like that of the deprivation chamber but even more powerful.
I am not too keen on the sensationalistic "OVNI" media splash in Mexico of the last few years. Nearly everything I have seen so far looks like mylar balloons of one sort or another, birds flying in formation, etc., but this footage of a "cloud" UFO rings a bell with me since I had a mind blowing sighting of one of these some years back. My UFO was a tiny silver craft (at about the height of the one on the video) that could be seen generating a water vapor cloud. This sort of thing was explained very well in the Betty Andreeasson series of UFO books by Raymond Fowler. Betty described (and drew) in vivid detail being taken to a large mother ship that had huge nozzles for creating a cloaking water vapor cloud inside of which the craft would drift along in camouflage. I think these obvious lapses in camouflage are purposefully done to give us peeks and hints every now and again - a limited hangout so to speak.
Here is another Youtube similar to what I saw and what is seen in the above video. Unfortunately, the video resolution in both footages is too coarse to show the silver craft in the middle of it all. The unaided eye or the binocular augmented eye (in my sighting) sees the silver craft. That is the clincher that these are not just spontaneous and unusual meteorological events.
"It is a massive operation jointly undertaken by many levels. They log into facebook or comment interfaces (i.e. disqus, livefyre, etc) with different names to help support their objective. You can also see many of these users making the same comments on other websites...always negative...and only on specific topics. Vaccines is a preferred subject of attack, for most of them, however GMO, organic foods, cannabis are also hot topics they piggy back on. Many of the terms and english used can also be sourced to the same users. One facebook user was caught with 52 different log-ins, fake pictures and bios before the user simultaneously deleted all 52 logins once exposed."
"Referring to the Boston bombings, Todashev said his son believed it was a “set-up.” But Ibragim never sympathized with radical or terrorist ideas, and was not a follower of a radical Islam, he added.
Also, Ibragim was never a close friend of Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev – he and
Tamerlan only “went boxing at the same gym” and “exchanged phone numbers,” the father said.
So far, Todashev has received “no official explanation” of his son’s death from the US side. He said he was only told there is an ongoing investigation “inside the FBI.”
Todashev called the earlier claims that Ibragim was shot attempting to attack an FBI agent “absurd,” saying four or five police and FBI officers could have easily handled such an attack without needing to kill his son.
“Maybe my son knew something, some information the police did not want to be made public. Maybe they wanted to silence my son,” Todashev’s father said."
This is the most cogent and chilling thing I have seen so far that shows how the terror scam is being run in the US. Doors are being very purposefully left open so that foreign terrorists can just skip in unmolested with the hopes that they will pull some attack. It goes deeper than that, but the surface says enough. The DHS is primarily in the business of enabling terrorist acts in order to justify its existence and the greater geopolitical agenda. As told by a former DHS employee whose life was made a living hell after she blew the whistle.
DHS Whistleblower Says War On Terror Is A Charade

Julia Davis, a former Customs and Border Protections Officer, was falsely declared a domestic terrorist and subjected to retaliatory efforts against her by the Department of Homeland Security. Her home was raided by a 27 man “special response team.” She was twice falsely arrested and imprisoned, but later exonerated. She is now a national security expert and has put out a historical documentary titled Top Priority: The Terror Within. She claims that the War On Terror by the Department of Homeland Security is a charade and that the agency seems to be targeting concerned American patriots.
Davis says her documentary is about her time with DHS in dealing with applicants from countries with ties to terrorism, who are seeking to come into the United States.
She says that they had “very specific alerts” that on July 4, 2004 that members of Al-Qaeda would be attempting to cross the border from Mexico into the US. The land port where Ms. Davis worked is the largest and busiest land port in the world, San Ysidro Port. She says that Islamic clerics say this is the best place to breech the US border because of the large number of people coming through.
She says that she began to input the information into the DHS database, which she was required to do as a supervisor, and she noticed that she had a high number of people from terrorist countries set to come through her port on July 4. She says there were 23 people form terrorist countries who were to be admitted into the US on that day. She said the average number of people coming from terrorist countries would normally be 5-10 per month. So to have 23 in a ten hour span was “alarming.”
But it goes further. Davis says that none of these people were subjected to routine checks that were in place for applicants from terrorist countries. According to Davis, “They were supposed to be fingerprinted. They were supposed to be asked why they left the US, why they were coming back, where they were living… all these different procedures that would have taken approximately an hour for each person. None of it was done.”
In fact, in some of the cases, the individuals didn’t fill out the paperwork or provide the documents they were supposed to in order to come into the United States.
Davis indicated that the Port Director was not informed about the situation and that when she went higher up to Intel and she said she “nearly fell down” when she found a “closed door.” The entire Intel office was “given the day off so that they could Bar-B-Q on the Fourth of July.” Ultimately there was no one that she could report her findings to. Coincidence? I think not.
The Port Director wasn’t worried either. He simply told her to put it in their box and they would get to it when they had opportunity. This was in direct opposition to what their manual stated was to happen, according to Ms. Davis. They were to get the information to a joint terrorism task force.
That night, since she was no longer under the Port Director’s orders, she contacted the FBI to inform them of the situation. In her mind, she was simply being patriotic and informing people who should be able to use the information to deal with a very real threat. She simply wanted to make sure that while others were barbequing that nothing was going to be blown up in the United States.
From that time on, every day when she came to work she was being investigated for one thing or another. She says everything they brought up to here was frivolous and ridiculous and she believes it was an attempt to get her fired to discredit anything she would say. All of this was because the FBI knew the information and DHS was embarrassed that the information came to them the way it did.
Within a period of two weeks, Davis was the subject of 19 investigations. By the time she sued Homeland Security there had been 54 investigations! On top of that, she was declared a domestic terrorist! My fellow Americans, this is a woman that sought to ensure the safety of our border! She was vigilant at her job and according to what she is saying, our government, if the allegations are true, has acted not only negligently against the American people, but criminally against her.
Davis’ home was raided by a 27 man SWAT team in a Blackhawk helicopter. She said they spent more time and utilized more man power raiding her home without a warrant than the government used to raid the alleged compound of Osama bin Laden.
Davis believes that no one dealt with the issue she brought forward because either they were derelict of duty or, more likely, there was corruption. She said that the Customs Department is historically one of the most corrupt agencies, especially the land port where she worked. In fact, she said that her border crossing had a Port Director who was caught taking bribes to allow people to come across. She also said there were intel reports that came up later which indicated that Arab nationals were offering $5,000 per person to allow individuals across the border without facing any scrutiny.
When asked what she thought about DHS and their priorities, Davis said:
“It makes me think that he so-called ‘War on Terror’ is more of a charade and that the priority of the agency seems to be to target concerned citizens and whistleblowers because in my case… they sent an airplane to follow me… they had eight agents at a time following me… they used airplanes, vehicles, helicopters… they used OnStar to listen to what was being said in our cars.”
As her lawsuit progressed, she says she obtained documentation of why DHS said she was a domestic terrorist. According to the documentation, DHS labeled David a domestic terrorist “for derogatory statements made in her filings and in her articles about the Department of Homeland Security.” Well I guess I know what I’m labeled then, eh?
Davis believes that DHS acts in this way so that they don’t have to follow the laws (something people like Senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain agree with) and not have to follow the Constitution. Keep in mind though that we are not talking about the DHS under Barack Obama, but the DHS under George W. Bush.
Since the release of her film, their Fleur De Lis (the producer of the film) family stores have been raided by DHS and they are under continual surveillance. She also has a number of electronic interruptions as well. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) audited them along with their attorneys who assisted her as she prevailed against DHS.
There is more in the video, which you will want to see. However, even after she is exonerated, DHS continues to hound her. This is not freedom. This is not liberty. This is not justice. This is the face of tyranny and yes, it’s here in the US.
