successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure
uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other
possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are
viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside.
New! September 5, 2002 - Cassiopaeans said on August 24, 2002:
* Those humans at the highest levels of power that can and do hand down orders to bury or suppress information have only one "master." They have been bought and paid for by both giving knowledge of upcoming cataclysmic events, and promised survival and positions of power after. It is not difficult to realize that there is a body of such types in positions of power already. Power is not only attractive to such types, they are the kind most easily courrupted by it.*
We were concerned about our own vulnerabilities in publishing some of our material - the results of both inquiries of the C's as well as hard research. The C's told us the following:
*Who is going to put the pieces together reasonably and coherently if you don't? Everyone is seeking truth. What's wrong with putting it out there? Sometimes, not putting it out there gives some others hope of stopping you from doing so. Once it is out, you are safer since at that point, any "attack" only justified and validates all you have presented.
* We have mentioned transducing of energies by groups. We have mentioned "Help" to certain groups. You speak regularly about "butterflies and Hurricanes." If you are patient and persistent, it will pay off in a way you cannot even conceive of at this point. Just remember the "Little Engine That Could."*
Cassiopaea averages about 10,000 site hits per day. Back in 1998 when we decided to put our money where our ideas were and purchased our domain and launced the official site, we were happy to have 40 visitors a day. We certainly never imagined 10,000 a day.
So, just for today, I want to get on the soapbox and say a few things that are CRUCIAL to the "shaping" of our FUTURE.
As we have repeatedly emphasized on the site here, we believe that research is the 90% complement to the 10% inspiration of the C's "clues" to our reality. And we have diligently researched and presented on this site the results of same. To say that we have been frequently surprised at the results of the research, and how it confirms the clues the C's have given us is an understatement. We certainly never dreamed we would encounter the facts that were pulled up while writing the Adventures Series regarding the possibilities of real, hyperdimensional "conspiracies" that have been running the "Show" on the World Stage for the past many millennia. We also did not expect to find the evidence we did that suggest that the Stage Set for the Final Act of the play is being set up NOW. But, there it was. And there is more that we have yet to present and we are working on it daily.
As we say here at Cassiopaea: Knowledge Protects. Ignorance (= Blind Belief) Endangers. While we are in the midst of some dire stuff on our planet, and rational analysis of issues tells us that something big is going on, nobody can say when or how the deal is going to play out. There are a lot of cards that haven't been shown, and the future is still OPEN!
But the evidence also indicates that the Future is "shaped" by those who ACT!
Well, "they" are acting to bring the Fires of Hell down on America. WE can act to direct a different destiny. If we do nothing, our destiny is shaped by those who do NOT have our best interests at heart. Butterflies flapping their wings CAN produce Hurricanes.
At this point, we see several positive possibilities. The first is that individuals need to work on themselves to develop their magnetic centers so as to seat the "higher self" so that transducing of Higher STO energies can be a REALITY in our lives. Blind belief does NOT do this. Only hard work within a network can do it at this stage of the game. That is why we have set up the Quantum Future School.
The second possibility that is open to us is to keep a constant pressure on the reality boundary. At the moment, it is circumscribed by the Bush Puppet and his fellow actors in the drama that has been scripted by the STS controllers.
Well, what if, when a troupe of actors came on stage, all the audience began to deluge them with rotten fruit?
This is NOT an empty metaphor. The STS controllers are so SURE of their control, they are so sure that their 50 or more years of painting and erecting the stage sets will convince the audience that their drama is truth, that they simply cannot conceive of an informed audience that can see it is all a farce - and a badly acted one at that.
So, again we say: Let us act FOR our destiny. It is not necessary to act against them even if they will most certainly perceive our actions for peace as such. Since they have made it so we can't walk out of the theater, the only means we have of stopping the farce is to throw the fruit and hiss and boo. Let's flap our butterfly wings in all the little ways we can that may act to "shape" a different future. And beware of ideas of "meditating for world peace" or "dreaming a new future" as promoted by those who promote "blind belief" which inhibits both knowledge and action in the ways that count. Clear observation of our reality will demonstrate that such practices have only made things worse. Such activities are simply a COINTELPRO diversion by puppets of the Control System who hope to drain your energy by telling you lies and inducing your belief. When you believe such lies, you have handed over your free will, and THEY will use your energy - your psychic loosh - to entrap and enslave you.
Here are the facts:
More than 840,000,000 people on the Earth suffer from hunger. That's about three times the population of the entire USA. This is chronic, persistent hunger, which kills 24,000 people every day, or over 8 million each year. Three of four who die from starvation are younger than five years old.
According to the Historical Atlas of the Twentieth Century, during the past 100 years there have been right at 2 billion deaths resulting from war (including civilians), tyrannical governments, and man-made famine. When these figures are broken down into deaths caused by Communism vs. non-Communism, they are almost equal, with the figures slightly higher for non-Communism which may surprise advocates of Capitalism.
Turning to mortality statistics that are NOT related to war and famine, we find that it is a bit difficult to get an actual number because the stats are nearly always expressed in terms of percentages rather than in hard population numbers. One gets the feeling that the actual count is so frightening that this approach is used for the express purpose of avoiding having to face the facts. One thing we do know is that deaths from cardiovascular diseases and stroke are the leading cause of death in 31 of the 35 Western Hemisphere countries that report disease related mortality statistics. The highest mortality rates are found in the English-speaking Caribbean, USA, Canada, Argentina, Chile and Uruguay. Mortality rates from these causes are increasing in the Central American and Latin Caribbean regions as they come more and more under the sway of Western capitalism.
What we are talking about above are the "quiet" statistics, from our present reality. Even now it is easy to forget that there were 65 million deaths from WW II alone and that deaths from disease and starvation continue as a quiet, steady, drum beat of increasing mortality behind the trumpeting of school shootings, sensational murder trials, and little Cuban boys who become the center of international custody disputes.
I don't think that one single person on this planet will disagree that they want a better life for themselves and their children; and most of them will add that they do not presently have the capacity to make it a reality. Except for a very small minority of very sick people, I don't think anybody likes to see misery and suffering, disease and death and despair, in any context. And again we must ask: if these things are so detestable to human beings at large, if so many people are working and thinking and praying to improve the conditions of our world, why isn't it happening?
Seekers of Ascension are always aware of these things, and they are asking "What is the origin of all the misery and suffering? Does it just happen? Do people and only people cause others to suffer? Is it that God is good, but allows bad things to happen?"
"Don't forget the power of prayer," we are told by our religious leaders, or "positive thinking," as we are told by the New Age gurus. The only problem is, prayers and positive thinking do not seem to have improved the world very much on the occasions when it is certain that nearly every human being was praying for a certain outcome.
Over sixty million people died because God didn't do what everybody thought he should do. C.S. Lewis struggled with this issue in the latter part of his life. He saw clearly that, before World War II, practically every human being on the planet was praying - to Jesus, God the Father, the Virgin Mary, Allah, Buddha and whoever else you can name or mention, so all the bases were covered - that this terrible thing would not happen. The memory of the previous "Great War" was still fresh in the mind of mankind. They remembered the horrible carnage and vowed, never again!
In the end, after the most mighty cry of prayer in human memory, rising from the earth, almost one-third of the world was uninhabitable and sixty-five million human beings were dead. That was God's answer to prayer. That was the result of the "power of positive thinking."
THINK ABOUT IT.
I typed the word "ascension" along with the word "spiritual" into a popular search engine. It returned 115,000 pages for my edification. Why, at this present moment in history, is so much attention being focused on this subject? Well, we all know the answer to that question. It is because of the state of the World in which we live.
The Laws of Probability tell us that, without any intelligent input, 50% of the time the events in our world would lead to great good and benefit for mankind. In a strictly mechanical way, life in our world ought to have manifested a sort of "equilibrium." Factoring in intelligent decisions to do good would bring this average up to about 70%. That would mean that humanity would have advanced over the millennia to a state of existence where good and positive things happen in our lives more often than "negative" or "bad" things. In this way, many of the problems of humanity would have been effectively solved. War and conflict would be a rarity, at least 70 percent of the earth's population would have decent medical care, a comfortable roof over their heads, and sufficient nutritious food so that death by disease or starvation would be almost unheard of.
The facts are, however, quite different.
Ascension" is discussed widely in books, articles, on the internet, in classes and workshops, and other media. The general trend of ideas expressed include the search for the "one thing that will transform your life." Various "techniques" are advertised which promise to provide stress relief and even the" key to the highest levels of human consciousness." The shopper in the market of ascension "tools" is told that they can NOW make a choice to "swiftly and easily free the nervous system from stress, enjoy maximum creativity, clarity and health, experience inner peace, fulfillment and joy," and of course, change one's self-limiting beliefs.
Another perspective on "ascension" tells us that ascension is "the way to integrate all portions of your self in a conscious way." The seeker is told that he or she is a "multi-dimensional being who seeded portions of itself into the physical reality" and that fully "remembering who you are" is the act of integration and the "removal of the veil of time, identities and separateness in yourself." What, precisely, the result will be - other than being "healthy, wealthy and wise" - is not clear.
As we read further in the available literature, we discover other ideas. One author on the subject tells us "In past ages, ascension occurred after the death of the physical body. Now it is possible for people to ascend with the physical body, no longer needing to leave it behind. […] Now it is much easier for incoming souls to move along quickly to spiritualize their physical bodies because the whole process is well advanced. Young people today can quickly awaken to their spiritual truth and begin to contribute to the forward progress of the mass consciousness rather than spending most of their lives dragging back heavily against it. They can help bring forth the ascension for the masses before physical death, before totally wearing out the physical body in resistance to evolution. Much more energy can be expended on the positive and much less wasted on the negative."
Apparently, such authors haven't been paying a whole lot of attention to what is going on in the real world.
This leads to another point: it seems that we must accept the objective fact that attempts to change the world spiritually, or to regulate large scale events, simply do not work. Yes, there does seem to be evidence that individuals or small groups of individuals can make small changes or produce effects with a limited range of influence. But for some reason, the world as it is, seems to operate based on rules or laws that we do not understand. The fundamental nature of the physical world seems to be antithetical to this "spiritualization." While we all might like to think we can transform our world by praying and/or thinking positively, we must remember that there is a great deal of evidence that real transformations of the planet have repeatedly been cataclysmic. A philosophy which ignores this fact is courting disaster.
And so we have a clue that the problem may not be as easily solved as the many promoters of the different "methods or techniques of Ascension would have us believe.
In 1958, Aldous Huxley wrote Brave New World in which he stated:
Aldous Huxley also made an early connection between psychedelic drugs and the experiences of Eastern Mysticism and this set the consciousness raising bomb off with a BANG! Along came Timothy Leary, Richard Alpert AKA Baba Ram Dass with their LSD and other modes, leading the parade of those who were "turned on, tuned in."
The current New Age and metaphysical community was taken over long ago by COINTELPRO for this very reason: Bread and circuses. People like Rosemary Ellen Guiley - columnist in Fate magazine - are prime examples of such COINTELPRO puppets.
"Create Your Own Reality." "Dream a New Future" "Proactive Dreaming." "Peak Experiences" - experience, experience, experience - has become the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. No one needs to live in Existential Despair any longer! Everyone can become a "spiritual voyager" and achieve extended periods in realms of consciousness they have only heard about in veiled, mysterious allusions down through the ages.
Encounter groups, radical therapies, old and new combinations of theories and practice have rolled off the conveyor belt of techno-spirituality managed by COINTELPRO operatives. Merkaba Meditations, Equinox Workings, Mystery School Mish-mash, or Pagan Pow-wows. The intangibles of spirit have been harnessed! - they claim. Anyone can evoke some desirable experience by manipulating awareness at the basic physical and psychological levels. It's like buying Coca-Cola! The "pause that refreshes" right here in this very tape set, consciousness raising course, or cult practice! It has become a form of spiritual masturbation where everyone can "meet their own needs" in private. You can put on your strobe glasses, listen to your astral travel tape, channel your very own guides, confer with the Ophanic Intelligences, merge with the "Nine Neters," and get high without ever leaving the farm! You can "change your beliefs," "create your own reality," indulge your "inner child/ego," Ascend and become One with all Creation, by mail, by golly!
Never mind that all of this bypasses the vital processes of reason and conscious decision making as well as active direction of emotional energies in the ways of TRUTH. By its very nature, the whole techno-spiritual machine operates completely without critical thinking; it taps the bottomless pit of feeling - emotion - primal being and feeds it to the masters of manipulation.
Each of the many techniques promoted is certainly capable of producing an emotional high of one sort or another. The mixtures of Zen, yoga, meditation, drugs along with strict mechanical technology is a veritable adventure in awareness!
The only problem is: in the midst of all this peaking, mind-blowing, turning on and tuning in, ecstasy and encountering, and "ascending," many people have encountered things that, perhaps, ought not have been awakened. Boundaries have been breached into unseeable and terrifying realms of manipulation
What nobody seems to be talking about, however, is the concomitant changes in our world that very well may be the direct result of this so-called "shift in consciousness." Nobody wants to talk about the hard reality of what is really going on out there.
Those readers who are familiar with Biblical prophecy - are undoubtedly aware that we are in a period of what seems to be definite and obvious "fulfillment of prophecy." World events, most especially the activities of the present Bush Administration, demonstrate a clear agenda to implement Draconian Controls precisely as described in the prophecies of the Book of Revelation. What makes me really curious is the almost complete silence of the Fundamentalist Christian groups who spent so many years preaching and warning everyone, and now that it is here - it's real - they don't even seem to see it.
Machiavelli observed that religion and its teachings of faith, hope, charity, love, humility and patience under suffering were factors that render men weak and cause them to care less about worldly and political things, and thus they will turn political power over to wicked men who are not influenced by such ideals. And these controllers are the ones who are REALLY creating our reality - using the energy of "true believers" and those who are asleep or not willing or able to ACT IN FAVOR OF THEIR DESTINY.
Of course, the real trick is to convince people that the "afterlife" is the only thing worth thinking about, and it is to this end that Christianity has been formulated. And "dreaming a new world into being" is simply another verse of the same song. So is "meditating on world peace" and "let's think nice thoughts and all the ugliness will just dissolve!"
This, of course, brings us to the matter of what authors Clive Prince and Lynn Picknett call The Stargate Conspiracy. This is, basically, what could be called a COINTELPRO operation set up to trap seekers of "ascension" so that no ascension, in fact, takes place. In other words, not only has the original promise of Christianity been co-opted and corrupted since its inception over 2,000 years ago, but the very fact that so many people are seeking answers in the idea of "ascension," or development of REAL spirituality, has necessitated that the Control System in operation these many millennia do precisely the same thing: co-opt, corrupt, promulgate lies and disinformation, and so on. And disinformation is certainly most effective when it contains a large body of truth, but twists are introduced to ensure that the seeker is never able to achieve the goal.
One of Machiavelli's chief ideas is that a religion is good only if it supports the state and contributes to state ends. By using religion, one can give "divine sanction" to laws which people would otherwise have no reason to obey. Therefore, the state must control the teachings of the Church. This is certainly what Constantine had in mind when he made Christianity the state religion.
If we simply change the word "state" to "hyperdimensional Control System," it is easy to see how the seeking of "Ascension" can be utilized to support exactly the opposite agenda.
Nearly all of the COINTELPRO systems of "spirituality," from Christianity to Merkaba Meditations constitute the idea that we can exert our will and voice upward to change what is "above" us in order to change our reality, our lives, our thinking; moving our brains into harmony, or aiding the "heart in opening," obtaining "harmony and balance" which is then going to "open windows in our mind, our heart, and our spirit," etc. It is then stated, (quite truthfully, I should add, since good disinformation is always wrapped in a warm and fuzzy truth), that, "without Divine Unity inside of us, these windows of inspiration are rarely available."
What is not stated is the cold, hard fact that this is entirely the bass-ackward way to go about achieving any of the above claimed benefits.
Sure, such activities will temporarily produce chemical changes that will feel VERY good, the same way a good meal satisfies hunger temporarily. It really "feels good!" But just as the steak and salad are digested and most of the matter excreted in a few hours, and another steak and salad is needed to fill the stomach again, so do such practices fail to so anything more than perpetuate the "food chain." And, staying with the analogy, very little of the "substance" of such practices actually "stays with" the individual.
After over thirty years of research, the one thing that has become evident is that the energies of Creation emanate "downward," and our individuality as human beings is merely an expression of the "Theological Dramas," so to say. To attempt to exert our will or to make our voice travel "upward," against Creation results only in a clash of forces that the human being is simply not sufficiently developed to deal with. It is, in essence, an attempt to violate the Free Will of Creation, i.e. Hubris. This is why praying, rituals designed to "change" reality, "positive thinking" with the "intent" to change something "up there," in order to receive the benefits "down here," is always doomed to produce more strife, misery and suffering globally.
What we CAN do is to prepare ourselves for the emanations that are traveling "downward" to be better received, and to ACT in every moment based on our knowledge. This is the essential point of Castaneda's Don Juan when he said:
All around us we see the results of this error: the idea that we can exert our will and voice upward to change what is "above" us in order to change our reality. This idea is at the root of rites and rituals, demanding, pleading, visualizations, "workings," and so forth. When people think that "meditating on compassion," or "feeling the feelings of all beings," is going to result in the "sonic entrainment of the heart's rhythm [being] braided into more complex and coherent patterns," which will then enable the person to "create a diamond imperishable body for use as a teaching vehicle down here on earth," has missed the entire point. To compare such ideas to the true work of Seeker of Ascension is simply ignorant.
An extensive study of the historical literature shows that those who actually MAY HAVE achieved Ascension don't just sit down one day and meditate on compassion or the feeling of oneness and "boom!" experience an "implosive soul force." Before Ascension can ever achieved the point of being able to think even momentarily about "the oneness of all beings," or the "feelings of all beings," the REAL seekers have spent many, many years in the struggle to "face petty tyrants," or to fully REALIZE objective reality. He has repeatedly exposed himself to as many "unpleasant experiences" as he can find, all the while struggling to master his emotions, his desires, his physicality, and learning to ACT in favor of his destiny. It is the work of making the physical vehicle "down here," receptive to whatever may be "up there," as opposed to trying to forcibly create something "up there," in order to have it "down here."
Nevertheless, the many teachers of ascension continue to expound on the subject by saying such interesting things as: "It is possible to ascend physically as Jesus and the other masters demonstrated. In this process, the physical cells are all expanded into a higher frequency. The physical body begins to glow from within and radiate light. Much as the blades of a fan seem to "disappear" as they rotate faster and faster, a body that is vibrating at higher frequencies seems to disappear from the third dimension. Its primary focus is on a higher dimension. It seems "magical" to those who remain focused on the denser third dimension, but it is a perfectly natural process."
Unfortunately, such promulgators of wisdom do not seem to be able to demonstrate what they are teaching. But nobody usually notices that part because they are too busy having "spiritual experiences" produced by any number of "techniques" which make them "feel good" long enough to whip out the credit card or sign the check. A considerable period of time is required to finally come to the realization that techniques that relieve stress or produce "good feelings," have done nothing to actually change their lives or their "vibrations." They are still recognized by their neighbor's dog, they still find new gray hairs on their heads, and they still get sick and have aches and pains like everyone else.
What the modern day seekers of ascension are looking for - whether they realize it or not - for is the age-old quest. Those who are not familiar with the literature don't realize that the Quest for the Holy Grail and the Great Work of Alchemy are described in almost the same terms. However, the Quest for the Holy Grail and the Work of the Alchemists hold many clues for us as to the REAL WORK OF ASCENSION. Repeatedly they present allegories of struggle, deception, battles with dragons, deceivers, and evil forces of all kinds. The story o the Knight who slays the Dragon and rescues the Princess from the Tower after years of seeking, struggling, suffering and overcoming, is an allegory that is as valid to day as it was in ages past. It is the TRUE PATH OF ASCENSION.
At the present moment in time, humanity is presented with a DIVINE OPPORTUNITY. We have a truly marvelous Petty Tyrant in our lives: George Bush and the Global Elite. And, as Don Juan said:
It is time to put this into practice. The possibility exists that thousands - maybe even millions - of people will be enabled to Fuse and condition their magnetic centers by DEALING WITH IMPOSSIBLE PEOPLE IN POSITIONS OF POWER.
Overcoming our fear of speaking out, of taking action, of being thought "not nice" because you simply refuse to tolerate mistreatment by Organic Portals who are the Puppets in charge, is a TEST - it is a CHALLENGE.
Can YOU hold your own in the face of petty tyrants? Can you ACT for your destiny so as to be able to stand in the presence of the Unknowable without flinching?
The Pressure of the Unknowable may very well be in our immediate future. Only you can decide if this is true, and only you can decide how to respond to the Challenge of our times. And perhaps you can, as a consequence of standing up and being counted as one who can face a petty tyrant with impunity, acquire the sobriety and serenity to stand the pressure of the unknowable and become a Warrior who is FREE.
New September 11 photos - major discrepencies between documented events and pictures emerge which suggest that these new photos were "staged."
That clandestine forces loyal to George Bush Sr. are planning to attack the US population, blame it on Islamic terrorists and use the attacks as a pretext for a total clamp-down on dissent, basic civil liberties, normal democratic processes and in the confusion that will follow they will wage unchecked war and aggression against Iraq, and other nations Islamic and otherwise who have natural resources and particularly oil reserves that this shadowy group of petrochemical and arms industrialists are thirsting for. Their ultimate goal? The conquest of Eurasia. [...]
[P]olls say more than half the American approve of Bush? We are shown images on the major media of people waxing rapturously over Bush. We see images on our television of people getting choked up and clasping their heart in upwellings of tender emotions when Bush appears before them with messages of mock concern for their well being. But in our daily life nearly everyone around us seems to hate this Bush President. It’s called the “fake out.” The news is fake - It’s just that simple. Ditto for the major public opinion polls as well. Nothing is left too chance. [...] Polls are now made to appear to show any disapproval indications towards Bush to be largely split down party lines What this is, is a “masking” technique. Commonly used in psy-ops to couch the question in only two terms each less damaging than the real term which is masked by it’s exclusion. [...] [The American people] instinctively know the truth. Beneath this thin veil of patriotism people are very suspicious, people have a lot of pent up mistrust and frustration and they are ready to explode. They know they are being lied to. They know they were much better off before this return to the same old oil wars, same old energy crises, same old doublespeak. Same old COINTELPRO. Same old governance through deception and lies.
Americans, already widely regarded by social critics to be the most lied to population on earth, are in for an onslaught of lies, assassinations, mysterious questionable suicides, plane crashes, etc, the likes of which are going to make the Nazis look like nice guys. (second referendum must outlaw (again) government officially sanctioned lies, misinformation, to knowingly plant misleading information, disrupt open political processes)
A U.S. war against Iraq would "open the gates of hell" in the Middle East, Arab League Secretary-General Amr Moussa said on Thursday. "No Arab country will accept any strike on any other Arab country. Moussa said U.S. threats risk inflaming a "background of frustration and anger" over the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict. "An action against Iraq, with the general opposition of the world, I believe would lead to serious repercussions in this region and perhaps beyond," he said.
Siege as French apocalypse cult plans voyage to Venus - The members of the Neo-Phare sect, including a doctor, a teacher and a tax inspector, follow the teachings of self-proclaimed guru Arnaud Mussy who predicts that Nantes will be consumed by the apocalypse on 24 October. Mr Mussy has predicted the end of the world on two other occasions this year, once in February and once in July. Having twice got his dates wrong, the guru has settled on 24 October as the definitive day when all life will cease and the earth will be invaded by flying saucers carrying "beings of light".
Michael Mandeville Reports: Based on new scientific principles which have emerged during the past thirty years, many of the dynamic activities of the Sun and Earth can be linked together to see how a range of effects are linked together. This makes it possible to paint "the big picture" into a perspective which explains many diverse events and processes, especially climate and weather patterns such as global warming and El Nino. From the "big picture", long range predictions can be made for weeks and even months ahead.
All of the important news continues to be in the current peak of Sunspot Cycle No. 23 as it drives Earth’s weather and climate patterns into 100 year plus record extremes. A steep wavefront has driven sunspot numbers up to 260 today, from a low of ~85 on ~August 28th. The numbers are likely to continue rising but the graph curve suggests they may not rise quite as high as the last peak (~310) on ~August 18th.
With the upsurge in sunspots, the velocity of the solar wind increased from 350 km/s to 450 within the last 24 hours and this is loading the Earth’s atmosphere with massive new quantities of energy to drive global patterns into another round of extremes. Last night most of the high Northern latitudes saw massive green aurora’s and there will no doubt be plenty of energy for bright aurora’s during the next two or three nights, possibly for another week.
All conditions will worsen this month. - Earth’s atmosphere appears to take about two to three weeks to fully express the impacts of a sudden new input of energy from the Sun. The second wave of sunspot numbers, which peaked on August 18th, is just now beginning to produce another round of increased rains and storms in the Northern tier of Canada, Europe, and China. This extreme wet pattern should continue to develop during the next week and new flood surges probably will be experienced in these latitudes, quite possibly on top of the areas which have already been flooded during recent weeks. [...] These effects should be spent by about the middle of September but they will be followed by another impulse of wet weather commencing about the third week of September. [...]
During the last week the most interesting seismic activity was a cluster of four large earthquakes about 210 miles (340 km) WNW of Coos Bay, Oregon at about 10 km in depth (about 6 miles). Ranging in size from about 4.0 mag up to 5.7, these quakes are at the edge of a tectonic plate fragment which is wedged between the Pacific Tectonic Plate and the North American Tectonic Plate. These quakes may be associated with underwater rifting and underwater volcanism.
Quake activity around the world was widely distributed but the overwhelming majority of quakes 3.0 mag plus were in the South Seas, from Fiji and New Zealand through to Papua New Guinea. On Papua there has been a major upsurge of volcanic activity, focused especially on Pago which has been eruptive for the past three weeks.
The Southwest Volcano Centre reports 35 volcanoes on the alert status list, 5 volcanoes on the restless list, and 21 on the active eruption list. All activity appears to have become more muted after having peaked in intensity during last week and the prior one.
Reports of severe crop failures worldwide are mounting.
September’s and October’s huge influx of ionic energization will once again increase emotional over-reactions and intellectual incoherence, esp. on the subject of violence, war, invasions, guilt, blame, revenge, and so on. JUST SAY NO. DARE TO JUST SAY NO TO ALL EMOTIONAL APPEALS, ESPECIALLY TO FEAR OR DESIRE FOR REVENGE. SAY NO TO ALL OF THE DRUM BEATS OF WAR. Demand that all things be logical and consistent. Clarity is sanity.
US sends heavy armour to Gulf as campaign grows - The US Navy has booked a giant commercial transporter to take tanks, artillery, ammunition and back-up vehicles to the region. It is the third shipment of arms and military hardware in a month using commercial shipping. Military analysts said it showed the US Navy had probably exhausted the capacity of its own fleet and resorted to the open market. - The shipment is the latest step in a process that has continued while public debate ebbs and flows over an attack.
Military officials Wednesday downplayed reports that a recent order to ship large quantities of military equipment to Central Asia was the beginning of a secret buildup of firepower and support equipment as the United States ponders an attack on Iraq.
The United States continues its military buildup in and around the Persian Gulf with analysts estimating up to 100,000 troops within striking distance of Iraq. - The U.S. Defense Department has been bolstering its transport ship fleet as well as preparing its air cargo fleet to defend against Islamic insurgents and Iraqi forces, Middle East Newsline reported. On Aug. 27, the Pentagon said it awarded Northrop Grumman a $23.2 million contract to provide the C-17 transport aircraft with systems to defend against infrared surface-to-air missiles. - The Washington-based Center for Defense Information said the U.S. troop deployment effort has been muted and taken in cooperation with host countries. The center said in a report that the cooperation is meant to keep the airlift out of the public eye.
Calling Saddam Hussein a "serious threat," President Bush said Wednesday he would seek approval from Congress about taking action against Iraq and vowed to make the case against the Iraqi leader on the international stage as well.
The warmongers failed to win public opinion, so they're suddenly cobbling together 'evidence' - So, they've got the evidence, about the weapons of mass destruction, but we can't see it just yet. Is it still at the printers? Is it being held up by a row about how you spell "aflatoxin"? Perhaps there's a problem with the plot, and the scriptwriters are refusing to let it go because the character of Tariq Aziz is left in the air and the relationship between Saddam and the scud missiles left hopelessly unresolved.
If they know the evidence, why can't they tell us the main points until we have the dossier? - Or when it comes they might announce: "We don't have any photos of his weapons of mass destruction just yet – but we have got drawings. In felt pen."
And what a coincidence, that this evidence should promise to pop up now, just as it becomes clear public opinion is against a war. It all looks as desperate as a couple coming back from holiday and incompetently trying to carry out an insurance fiddle. Blair and Bush are almost kicking each other under the table as they mutter: "They've definitely got plutonium. Uranium. No, plutonium. Hang on a minute – I thought we agreed uranium."
So it could be that because the warmongers are failing to win public opinion, they're suddenly cobbling together "evidence". And there will be piles of it. Just like the stories of Germans raping nuns in 1914 and Iraqis throwing babies out of incubators in 1990, admitted as lies once those wars were over.
Pressure is growing on Prime Minister Tony Blair to recall Parliament to debate the Iraq crisis. - Meanwhile, Downing Street has revealed Mr Blair will visit Moscow for talks with President Putin in early October. - Downing Street was also playing down the significance of Mr Blair's planned meeting with President Bush at Camp David.
German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder has rebuffed calls by British Prime Minister Tony Blair to back the United States in any military action against Iraq.
Jimmy Carter Takes Aim at George Bush - Fundamental changes are taking place in the historical policies of the United States with regard to human rights, our role in the community of nations and the Middle East peace process -- largely without definitive debates (except, at times, within the administration). Some new approaches [...] seem to be developing from a core group of conservatives who are trying to realize long-pent-up ambitions under the cover of the proclaimed war against terrorism.
Formerly admired almost universally as the preeminent champion of human rights, our country has become the foremost target of respected international organizations concerned about these basic principles of democratic life. We have ignored or condoned abuses in nations that support our anti-terrorism effort, while detaining American citizens as "enemy combatants," incarcerating them secretly and indefinitely without their being charged with any crime or having the right to legal counsel. This policy has been condemned by the federal courts, but the Justice Department seems adamant, and the issue is still in doubt. [...]
While the president has reserved judgment, the American people are inundated almost daily with claims from the vice president and other top officials that we face a devastating threat from Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, and with pledges to remove Saddam Hussein from office, with or without support from any allies. As has been emphasized vigorously by foreign allies and by responsible leaders of former administrations and incumbent officeholders, there is no current danger to the United States from Baghdad. [...]
Tragically, our government is abandoning any sponsorship of substantive negotiations between Palestinians and Israelis. Our apparent policy is to support almost every Israeli action in the occupied territories and to condemn and isolate the Palestinians as blanket targets of our war on terrorism, while Israeli settlements expand and Palestinian enclaves shrink. [...]
Belligerent and divisive voices now seem to be dominant in Washington, but they do not yet reflect final decisions of the president, Congress or the courts. It is crucial that the historical and well-founded American commitments prevail: to peace, justice, human rights, the environment and international cooperation.
A $1 trillion civil lawsuit filed Wednesday alleges Iraq knew in advance of Islamic militant Osama bin Laden's plans for terror attacks against New York and Washington and conspired with him to carry them out.
A teenage boy accused of killing his father testified Wednesday that an adult male neighbor with whom he was emotionally and sexually involved was the actual killer, and that he and his brother reluctantly agreed to take the blame after being coached on what to tell authorities.
Governments worldwide have made it easier for authorities to augment citizen databases and eavesdrop on telephone and online conversations in order to fight terror, according to a new survey of privacy regulations.
The Japanese government is facing a revolt from local authorities over its plans to digitise personal data and assign everyone an ID number. - According to the Washington Post, the government has been surprised by the amount of anger generated by a move to put local authority information on a computer network and assign an 11-digit number to everyone. At least four local municipalities have defied the government and refused to be a part of the computer network that started earlier this month.
A French researcher has found a skeleton of a Neanderthal baby that was first discovered in 1914 near Le Moustier, in southwestern France, but was lost in a museum for more than 80 years.
A giant space rock that hit the Earth eons ago scattered high-velocity rubble over the planet, setting off wildfires that quickly spread over much of the equatorial region, North America and the Indian subcontinent, scientists announced this week.
A self-organising electronic circuit has stunned engineers by turning itself into a radio receiver. - Treating each switch as analogous to a gene allowed new circuits to evolve. Those that oscillated best were allowed to survive to a next generation. These "fittest" candidates were then mated by mixing their genes together, or mutated by making random changes to them. After several thousand generations you end up with a clear winner, says Layzell. But precisely why the winner was a radio still mystifies them.
New! September 4, 2002 - HOW STUPID DO THEY THINK WE ARE? Zbigniew Brzezinski and the CFR Put War Plans In a 1997 Book - It Is "A Blueprint for World Dictatorship," Says a Former German Defense and NATO Official Who Warned of Global Domination in 1984, in an Exclusive Interview With FTW
World events since the attacks of September 11, 2001 have not only been predicted, but also planned, orchestrated and - as their architects would like to believe - controlled. The current Central Asian war is not a response to terrorism, nor is it a reaction to Islamic fundamentalism. It is in fact, in the words of one of the most powerful men on the planet, the beginning of a final conflict before total world domination by the United States leads to the dissolution of all national governments.
This, says Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) member and former Carter National Security Advisor, Zbigniew Brzezinski, will lead to nation states being incorporated into a new world order, controlled solely by economic interests as dictated by banks, corporations and ruling elites concerned with the maintenance (by manipulation and war) of their power. As a means of intimidation for the unenlightened reader who happens upon this frightening plan - the plan of the CFR - Brzezinski offers the alternative of a world in chaos unless the U.S. controls the planet by whatever means are necessary and likely to succeed.
Comment: In other words, they have been playing us all for idiots with all the COINTELPRO disinfo about the UN trying to enforce the New World Order on the US - it's the US that has been planning all along to BE the New World Order. And there are prophecies about what happens to the Beast - the NWO.
Hypocrisy now! - Excuse me: I don't want to be tacky or anything, but hasn't it occurred to anyone in Washington that sending Vice President Dick Cheney out to champion an invasion of Iraq on the grounds that Saddam Hussein is a "murderous dictator" is somewhere between bad taste and flaming hypocrisy? When Dick Cheney was CEO of the oilfield supply firm Halliburton, the company did $23.8 million in business with Saddam Hussein, the evildoer "prepared to share his weapons of mass destruction with terrorists." [...]
When Cheney left Halliburton, he received a $34 million severance package despite the fact that the single biggest deal of his five-year career there, the acquisition of Dresser Industries, turned out to be a huge blunder since the company came saddled with asbestos liability. (On the campaign trail, Cheney often claimed he had been "out in the private sector creating jobs." The first thing he did after the Dresser merger was lay off 10,000 people.) [...]
Halliburton also had dealings with Iran and Libya, both on the State Department's list of terrorist states. Halliburton's subsidiary Brown & Root, the old Texas construction firm that does much business with the U.S. military, was fined $3.8 million for re-exporting goods to Libya in violation of U.S. sanctions. If you want to know why the Democrats didn't jump all over this story and make a big deal out it, it's because -- as usual -- Democrats are involved in similar dealings. Former CIA director John Deutsch is on the board of Schlumberger, the second largest oil services firm after Halliburton, which is also doing business with Iraq through subsidiaries.
WHERE'S OSAMA? - Bush's "war on terrorism" (one uses quotes for things which exist in name only) has already manifested most of the characteristics of the dystopian society described in George Orwell's "1984." Like Big Brother, Bush is an unelected figurehead for a secretive clan of wealthy hypocrites who live above the law. Like Orwell's fictional Oceania, the United States is engaged in a perpetual war in which victory isn't expected within our lifetime. Oceania bombs its own people, using the fear of faux terrorism to maintain control over the population. The United States trains and finances radical Islamist terrorists who predictably turn against Americans, then uses the specter of terrorism to justify everything from fast-track signing authority on free trade (opposition to NAFTA and the WTO, Bush's U.S. Trade Representative argues, is "an attack on freedom") to tax cuts for the Administration's wealthy chums to smearing Tom Daschle as a communist terrorist enemy-of-the-state. Comment: Ya gotta read this one, it's hysterical!
Organic Portals: The "Other Race" - Probably the most important material ever brought forth by the Cassiopaeans. - At the bottom of this is perhaps the answer as to the source of one of the most enduring debates of human history i.e. good versus evil. Why is it that there is so much strife in the world, why are so many divided over the promotion of war or peace, respect or disrespect, environmental protection or destruction, in short, a purely material self serving outlook or a spiritual serving of others outlook? - Perhaps we are getting close to the answer, for the truth would seem to be that there is not and never has been a homogenous “we” (the human race) on the planet, “we” are not all alike, “we” do not see the world in the same way, “we” are not just a divided race, we are two different races.
Some of the nation's top psychiatristsare advocating the creation of an entirely new category of mental illness that could profoundly alter the practice of psychiatry and result in tens of thousands of families being diagnosed with a psychiatric disorder. - doctors recommend that a category called "Relational Disorders" be added to the next edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual - this new type of disorder would identify sickness in groups of individuals and in the relationships between them. This is a profound conceptual shift from the medical model of psychiatry, in which illnesses are diagnosed solely in individuals. - In the proposed class of illness, an individual might be diagnosed as healthy except when it comes to certain relationships. For the moment, the new category of mental illness would apply only to family relationships. If the new category is created, couples who constantly quarrel and parents and children who clash could be diagnosed with mental illness and treated, possibly with drugs. Troubled relationships between siblings could be the next large group. Comment: Interesting that this comes up right at the time of our work on the subject of Organic Portals was being done. Looks like if a person isn't submissive to the OPs in their lives, they can be drugged and forced to stay in the relationship. Abyssal cunning there.
A concerted White House effort to counter critics who say either that the president is in a rush toward a military confrontation or that the administration is sending confusing or conflicting signals about its policies and intentions has been initiated. Comment: This is the "spin" put on the activity by the US media. The next article is from the British press.
Bush faces Congress grilling on Iraq - President Bush is expected to come under close questioning over his policy towards Iraq in a meeting with senior US politicians on Wednesday. - BBC defence correspondent Jonathan Marcus says that up until now the Bush administration has never explicitly answered a number of questions: * What is Saddam Hussein doing in terms of weapons of mass destruction that requires action? * Why is action required now? * Should America launch such an operation alone? - Senate Democrat leader Tom Daschle has said he intends to persuade Mr Bush that the constitution requires him to ask Congress for permission before waging a war. "What is it that is triggering this new-found determination to move forward, even unilaterally?" he asked. Comment: A very good question indeed! What IS triggering the Shrub? Maybe Congress should reopen the UFO question? They might find part of the answer there.
Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister Tariq Aziz says Baghdad is ready to work with the U.N. to resolve the crisis between Iraq and the U.S.
Arab leaders fear that an American-led military campaign against Iraq would unleash an uncontrollable wave of popular anger. Comment: What they mean is that it might result in some random nuking. Maybe that's what the Shrub is really after? He's only following the Rockefeller agenda, after all. And we recall that the Rockybux folks, in concert with their occult synarchist buddies, were funding the Third Reich. And, after all, our own CIA and other intelligence organizations, were initially composed of former SS officers. Israel really ought to consider these things when getting in bed with the US on this "bomb Iraq" deal. It's mighty close to home. And I don't think that "a miss is as good as a mile" applies to radioactive fallout.
Russia says it will not support any U.S. military action against Iraq because it would only "complicate" attempts to resolve problems in the Middle East.
Pakistan will not join the United States in any military action against Iraq and its leader Saddam Hussein, the country's president, General Pervez Musharraf has said. - Iraq's neighbors, including some key allies from the Gulf War, are also reluctant to take part in a new campaign. - Musharraf said: "We have too much on our hands here internally and regionally. We wouldn't like to get involved anywhere outside. I wouldn't like to get involved at all." Comment: Well, there's a novel idea! We have so many issues here in the US ourselves, maybe Bush and gang ought to start thinking about solving some of them. You know, like affordable health care, environmental clean up, employment, social security, education (that's a big one!) and so on. Does the Shrub think that a war will solve all these things? Oh, yeah. I forgot. War is good business. Besides, if you kill off 20 or 50 thousand of your own citizens then you don't have to worry about them having jobs or collecting social security, or needing health care. It's a lot cheaper to bury folks than it is to solve problems. Good plan, Shrub!
"I think a unilateral attack on Iraq, with the circumstances I am aware of at the present time, is a mistake. I think it is a mistake morally. I think it is a mistake politically. I think it will set into motion a series of events that most of us cannot comprehend." --Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-California
"If I had to vote now for immediate action against Iraq, I'd vote no ... We're not an aggressive, offensive nation. -- Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho
"I'd like to have a couple more days before I respond to that." -- Senate Republican Leader Trent Lott of Mississippi, responding to the question of whether the Bush administration has been speaking with a coherent voice on the U.S. policy toward Iraq
As chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Powell voiced concerns before the 1991 Persian Gulf War, counseled against military force in Bosnia in 1993 and is among the former military men who advocate a "go-slow" approach toward military action against Iraq. Noting other generals' attitudes about Iraq, retired Marine Corps Gen. Anthony Zinni said, "It might be interesting to wonder why all the generals see it in the same way, and all those, who never fired a shot in anger and really held back to go to war, see it in a different way."
"Attacking Iraq now will cause a lot of problems ... it's the wrong time." -- Anthony Zinni, retired Marine Corps General Florida Economic Club -- August 23, 2002
"We should not seek war ... It should be the last resort." -- Wesley Clark, Former NATO commander London Times -- August 29, 2002
U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell has faced a stormy reception at the Earth Summit in Johannesburg as he sought to defend America's record on the environment. Comment: We always saw Powell as an ethical man. I bet he's having a hard time as Secretary of State of the most hated nation on earth.
" America! This is what MOST of the World thinks of Us! And it's NOT a pretty picture. America, constituting 5% of the Earth's population, is engendring so much hatred among the other 95% of the peoples of the world, that the situation is becoming dangerous. What is going to happen is described our article, The Future of the Beast Empire. America is the Beast. You can take that to the bank.
"The language of the U.S. president resembles the language of Hitler. This boasting of the strength of the Western powers has become so embarrassing that the president of a country who brags of [his support] for human rights and freedom talks with the people of the world in the language of Hitler..."
"These are some of the words of Ayatollah Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of the revolution... For the past half-century, the language of the Americans has always been the language of power and coercion. If Hitler had had to show the face of a bloodthirsty dictator, he would have had to adopt [the face of] George W. Bush... who has, for the past 20 months, since the beginning of his rule, taken on the pattern of Hitler's behavior in international relations."
"There is a great resemblance between the behavior of today's Americans and the behavior of the Nazis then: terrorizing other countries, seeking to rule over [them], intervening aerially [by bombing], and making a mockery of all the international rules and treaties."
"The Nazis of that time talked of the need to change Europe's political geography, of the need to topple some of the 'unnecessary' regimes (Poland, Czechoslovakia) of terrorizing Europe with the Nazi movement, and of shaping Europe in accordance with the caprices of the Germans."
"The same dangerous phenomenon appears today, fully, under the heading of 'the new world order,' in the form of a unilateral American struggle to topple a number of governments (Afghanistan, Iraq), to terrorize the Middle East through the Zionist [movement], and to create conditions that will secure American aspirations in the region."
"If in those days Adolf Hitler saw himself as determining... the changes in Europe and in the world, today Bush – with his Zionist advisors – sees himself... [as worthy] of the same admiration."
"[Like the Nazis], the Americans think themselves above international resolutions. They themselves did not sign the convention forbidding the creation and expansion of the [arsenal] of nuclear weapons, but they force others to abide by it. They threaten the world with the non-extradition of criminal American civilians and soldiers to the International War Crimes Court... They carve up Iraq's land with great pleasure, and even talk about carving up Saudi Arabia. They talk frequently of disarmament in the region, but at the same time equip Israel with the worst weapons of mass destruction and defend the criminals of this false regime, their [urge for] expansion, and their terror."
"The Americans are infected today with satanic pride and arrogant egotism. This egotism was not diminished throughout the 20th century, which gave birth to two destructive world wars. Although the aggressors were completely humiliated by the end of the two wars, there is a fear that the American [Bush] – the hands of whose criminals stir up most of the world's political crises, as he tramples with his soldiers' boots upon the rights of the nations: Afghanistan, Iraq, Korea, Japan, the Philippines, and other places in the world that are on the brink of conflagration – [this] Bush is heading towards a dead end on the same path on which the dictators who caused the two world wars also reached [a dead end]."
"All the countries... of the world demanded, under the same circumstances, [that the world] not remain indifferent in the face of a regime that intervenes militarily and politically [in other countries' affairs]. The lesson of the bitter events of the last century – for us, for the new generation, and for the generations to come – is that if the aggressors are not punished for their deeds... no law, no country, no political regime anywhere in the world will be immune to the cruel nature of [American] arrogance."
"We wish to conclude with the words of Ayatollah Khamenei, from his address to the 42nd session of the United Nations General Assembly in September-October 1987: '...Our message to all the peoples and countries that wish to remain independent and do not wish to obey the desires and caprices of the superpowers is: 'Do not fear them and rely [only] on yourselves and on your people.' Our message is that all the world – which previously, too, did not have to tolerate [this situation] – must say to the superpowers: 'Go home, and leave the world in the hands of its inhabitants...'"
Environmental groups - who earlier staged a walk-out at the summit - have criticised America for obstructing a stronger final plan. They are also angry that President Bush has refused to attend the summit. - Mr Powell, addressing the closing session of the summit, was jeered as he criticised Zimbabwe and talked of action the US was taking to meet environmental changes. - International aid agency Oxfam said the deal on the table offered only "crumbs for the poor". It said the agreement was "a triumph for greed and self-interest, a tragedy for poor people and the environment".
Russia could ratify the Kyoto Protocol on global warming very soon, Prime Minister Mikhail Kasyanov has told the Earth Summit in Johannesburg. - The 15-member European Union had already ratified Kyoto and had urged Russia to follow suit despite its rejection by the biggest air polluter, the U.S. - China's premier Zhu Rongji also announced at the summit that China had ratified the protocol.
"The history of terrorism in the 20th century shows that a war on terrorism cannot be won unless the causes of terrorism are eradicated by making the world a place free of grievances -- something that will not happen." says Dame Stella Rimington, the ex-boss of MI5, Britain's domestic security service.
Thousands of residents of the Czech capital have returned home, three weeks after the worst flooding in nearly 200 years forced their evacuation.
British seasons are becoming increasingly muddled, say conservationists. - Spring was three weeks early this year and autumn is likely to be late. - The Woodland Trust says higher than average temperatures from January to April are to blame, and points the finger at climate change. Comment: Duh! Are the people in charge of our planet REALLY as dumb as they sound?
A man wielding a knife and claiming to be driven by voices urging him to kill, slashed and injured at least 10 children at a church preschool in Seoul.
Worried UK parents are asking to have tracking microchips implanted into their children following the murders of two 10-year-old girls, a cybernetics expert says. Scientist Kevin Warwick from Reading University, west of London, says parents can keep track of their children with a tiny microchip implant in the arm or stomach. - Such a chip could prevent an abduction from becoming a murder, he says. Comment: Hmmm... NOW we understand the reason for all the recent child abductions and murders... and the media coverage; it's to convince us that microchips are a GOOD thing! Clever those 4 D rascals and their OP agents, eh?
A new type of ocean wave has been found. It hugs the sea bed and constantly exchanges energy between the sea floor and the water just above it. - Professor Lomnitz was alerted to the possible existence of so-called coupled waves by the disastrous earthquake in Mexico City in 1985.
August has been a record breaking month for malicious hackers with 2002 set to become the worst year for digital attacks on record, according to security firm mi2g. - If the US attacks Iraq then expect farther chaos in cyberspace, warned mi2g Chairman DK Matai. "It would seem highly likely that the launch of a physical attack on Iraq will see counter-attacks from disgruntled Arab, Islamic fundamentalist and anti-American groups," he told BBC News Online. - Critical national infrastructure such as power stations, water and sewage treatment plants as well as major communication and transportation hubs could be the next targets. - Laws have been passed which qualify digital attack as terrorism.
