Junk Politics

This is a well-assembled excerpt from a speech given by John Pilger, Australian journalist and documentary film-maker:

video

It is more important than ever that the people wake up to the manipulation and deception created by the false left versus right political paradigm.

Obama's betrayal of those principles held dear by the ideological left is no different from Bush's betrayals of the principles of his conservative constituency while creating prescription drug bureaucracies and furthering federal control of education through No Child Left Behind. Clinton engaged in similar betrayal when he sold the American worker and the American manufacturing base down the river to Mexico when NAFTA was codified into law.

Americans must wake up and realize that the only paradigm that matters, the only dichotomy that has ever mattered when measuring an individual against his or her society is this: freedom versus servitude.

We need to stop blindly supporting the false two-party establishment. It has been used as a lever of control by the banking and corporate elite as a means of creating the illusion of choice while invariably steering us towards global serfdom.


"The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a formal and more permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries, which result, gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and response in the absolute power of an Individual: and sooner or later, the chief of some prevailing faction more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purpose of his own elevation, on the ruins of Public Liberty." ~George Washington, 1796

Only Ourselves to Blame

I am always amazed by what is available now on YouTube and other video-sharing websites. Aside from the ubiquitous videos of fat men on bicycles demolishing their own testicles or some other form of humiliation, you can also find much more serious and important material -- interviews with great thinkers and writers like Ayn Rand. Lectures by noble laureates like Milton Freedman. Debates about God with the likes of Christopher Htchens. Lessons in Quantum Mechanics and matters of scientific theory with John Hegelin. You can watch mainstream media heads like Dan Rather or esoteric gurus on the tattered fringes like David Icke. So much is available with seemingly endless possibilities.

The other day I was watching an old interview with an equally old Carl Jung: He spoke with a difficult German accent into a 1950s-era sound system with a video quality that reeked of archive, but I was mesmerized nonetheless. The interview is interesting just as much for the provocative content as it is for the fact that here is this lauded figurehead of psychoanalytical thought -- a man whose theories I was tested over in college, whose works I have conceptualized, whose ideas I find provocative and enlightening, a guy who only existed on paper until this very moment -- and now I get to watch his animated and colorless image defy mortality.

His thin form bears the curvature of age, energetic beyond his years -- I can get a sense of the man behind the theoretical models and case-studies. I can see him staying up late and writing into a relentless journal, testing hypotheses, investigating literature and art and history for evidence of that common realm of mystical consciousness that connects all mankind.

There is a great line in the interview when Jung emphatically asserts: We know nothing of man. Far too little. His psyche should be studied because WE ARE the origin of all coming evil.

video

And from this simple and elegant observation... I have been spinning all day.

***

Our systems of government and rulership are manifestations of our own psychological weaknesses. These rulers and institutions and politicians are the mutated growth of our own fears and phantoms. Just as religion speaks to our primitive need to be ruled from the seat of celestial power, our bloated government bureaucracy reflects a desire to be ruled from the secular throne as well. We are the source of our own enslavement. We exist in a sort of hypnotic trance and naively believe in the good intentions of man -- but we fail to see the clumsy brutality of government when we employ its power and force as the grand master of these good intentions. --Healthcare for all! Homeland Security!

Men and women who seek power are attracted to this manifestation as if by force of gravity. They believe that their own vision of a "just" society must be imposed upon everyone else... for their own shitty good. Others who share this vision seek the same source of power from which they can apply a similar conception. Those who disagree seek the same. And our rulers suckle the erogenous zones of power for the strength required to dominate their fellow man -- satisfying their sadistic psychological hedonism for the good of us all. As such, our system of government becomes a weapon of inevitable self-destruction.

Power creates a frenzy, an ecstatic orgy. And the orgy must go on...

Will we ever realize that we do not need to be ruled or governed? Will we stop employing the destructive power of government -- imposing restrictions on others so that we may force them to live as we imagine to be proper? It is merely a reflection of our own fears and weaknesses that we have created such a devious system of power and manipulation. Carl Jung was right. We are indeed the source of all future evil.

Our children will call it tyranny.

A Tyranny of Illusions

Ah, Mars...




Because we love to be deceived:

*Whatever the government tells us is true.

*Government-controlled bureaucracies are efficient and only deal in naked facts.

*We are never lied to or mislead by those in power.

*The corporate media services the public interest.
*We live in a republic based upon principles of self-determination.

*Knowledge is never horded or obscured.

*Elitists respect their lower-class brothers.

*Secret societies are not the incubators of the oligarchy.

*Advancements in science are always made public and never used for the purposes of control, manipulation, and destruction.

*The shadow government is a tin-foil fantasy.

*War is not a racket. It is always about freedom and ideals.

*The government is capable of running health-care and saving the planet from fucking carbon.

*There is nothing strange in the skies. There are no moon bases. Mars is dead. NASA Scientists are searching relentlessly for illusive evidence of life outside of our blue sphere -- so far, nothing. And they always tell the truth.

***
Our benevolent government leaders treat the population as idiot children incapable of grappling with any basic truth that alters our comfortable understanding of life and metaphysics. The assumption is that our illusions and superstitions are profoundly necessary to our social and personal condition. Without them, society would fall into chaos. Control would be lost. I repeat, control would be lost.

But to maintain the social order on the basis of lies and coercion is far worse than any revelation could be -- regardless of how devastating to our fables and fantasies. Yet truth is horded, compartmentalized, and maintained by the establishment for the good of the establishment.

Of course, there is only a good-will desire to maintain cultural harmony. To ensure social cohesion. For the good of us all. Right?

Our illusions are necessary only because they serve the interests of the powerful -- those who build monuments and institutions to the lie. And many monuments I see.

Cycles and Permanent Waves: Leviathan Eats Man

"All the truth in the world adds up to one big lie." ~Bob Dylan

"All that we see or seem, is but a dream within a dream." ~Edgar Allan Poe

***

The following observation is attributed to an 18th century British historian, but the actual genealogy of the quote is a bit sketchy. Regardless, the wisdom suits my purposes:

The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, those nations always progressed through the following sequences: from bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to great courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to complacency; from complacency to apathy; from apathy to dependence; from dependence back into bondage...

I realize that there are imperfections in the formula. In all actuality, it seems that every civilization maintains a precarious and compartmentalized balance between all of these manifestations simultaneously. In the post-revolutionary United Sates, at a time when the white male landowner was enjoying the "Golden Age of liberty", his African brother was being sold into bondage and stripped of all humanity. His wives and daughters, too, were made mute in matters of politics -- religious and social mores encouraged their docile submission.

But because we love our illusions, there was freedom. Because of the sacrifice of the revolutionary, we have inherited this freedom. Say it aloud. Lie to me.

Though society as a whole may have tendencies and characteristics that favor individual freedom, liberty is mostly a matter of perspective. To the oligarch, the wealthy ruler, liberty has always existed. There are no restraints and conditions. The objective of life is to indulge the self and temper the intellect with the esoteric knowledge of secret orders and fraternities. Occult thinkers, writers, artists and historians -- explorers of the deeper mysteries of life and metaphysics -- these are the lauded figureheads whose works are horded and made cryptic by rulers and their scholars. And while the masses pray for a better life, the elite seek to become the gods to which we pray.

Makers of law. Captains of industry. Noble bloodlines. Divine Right.
-- Gods of Celebrity and Distraction, deliver us from evil.

Of course, the oligarchs do not need a savior. They are not waiting for rapture or deliverance from the drudgery of life and the tedium of obligation. They may run around in the woods debauching and
worshipping stone owls and other secret gods of their mystery schools, but they are not so limited by the framework of existence that deliverance is the objective of a life well spent. Living is.

Slaves need religion in order to make their bondage bearable. Elitists need civilizations and institutions in order to siphon the power and wealth of the fluoridated masses.

Many of us see civilization and social order as one of mankind's crowning achievements. It was designed as an escape from the barbarism of nature's law, an improvement upon the tribe and village whose resources were often limited and whose power inadequate against the larger, more dominant tribes.

As philosopher and pragmatic materialist Thomas Hobbes noted in his
epic treatise on government, the transition into civilization was to prevent man's perpetual war against man -- in the state of nature, everyone has an equal claim on everything and power and force underlie man's life and determine his stake. Ultimately Hobbes argues for a strong central authority as a means to maintaining peace and harmony among men, to escape this constant warfare.

While Mr. Hobbes was far more brilliant than I will ever be, his argument loses its pragmatic appeal the moment he begins to lobby for such authority. To Hobbes (and to both modern political parties as well) the individual cannot even exist until the Leviathan emerges. Without the state and the authority of rulership, an individual is meaningless. He can't exist. The state of nature negates the development of the individual. It is only the safety of the Leviathan that offers man the stability needed to actualize. Of course, this complex line of reasoning has its merits, but seeing as though it was argued at a time when Copernicus was still revolutionary, there may be room to criticize.

Four hundred years after Hobbes, what is civilization really? What has the Leviathan become? What are its accomplishments? What has it done? How has it worked to help the human individual achieve happiness and harmony? -- Surely it has given us more than three dollar gas. Micro-regulation. Disintegrating families and community. Increasingly severe limitations on freedom. Taxation. Inflation.

All of this so that we can have a "free" society? One that is constantly at war with other factions, one that incarcerates a larger percentage of its people than any other nation on earth (a higher percentage than Iran, China, and Russia). One in which a ruling establishment of bankers along with government and corporate elitists rape and pillage the wealth of future generations. How is this superior to a state of nature? Air conditioning and grocery stores? Traffic?

Civilization has become (and probably always has been) a construct of the oligarchical establishment, a creation of elitists who have infiltrated (if not founded) every important institution known to man -- calibrating each for the advancement of their own fraternal order. We are all fools if we consider it otherwise. But in the world in which we live, Obama is wisdom and rhetoric such as this is on the tattered fringes -- on the edge of the fringe -- storing food and ammunition -- waiting with tin-foil hats and HAM radios for the FEMA camps to open.

***

Frederick Douglass once asserted that if you want to know the exact measure of the injustice people will suffer, discover to which oppressions they will "quietly submit". This principal is taken to heart and applied readily by the ruling oligarchs -- the "quiet submission" of the masses is ensured by the doctrine of incrementalism. It is behavioral conditioning on a historical, societal scale. This is how B. F. Skinner was able to teach a pigeon to play ping pong. The is how the elite are able to teach serfdom to you and your children. This is the way the world ends. This is how the Leviathan grows.

Obviously, a global scientific dictatorship cannot be born overnight. There would be open revolt and turmoil. It has to put into place over a long enough period of time and to such incremental degrees that the sleeping public hardly notice. Those who do -- those who recognize the difference between liberty and encroaching tyranny -- are easily silenced or marginalized. This is how traffic cameras become military surveillance blimps and GPS-tagged front doors. This is how police go from Andy Griffith to paramilitary roid-ragers. This is how the New Deal becomes government operated health-care and car dealerships. This is the way that all liberty dies. Small steps. Not with a bang but a whimper.



(Police: Then and Now)








In order for the Leviathan to grow, in order for civilization to "advance", self-reliance must be sacrificed, as does individual liberty. It presents itself as a cruel irony that mankind fled the "state of nature", where constant struggle bred constant fear, in order to embrace the Leviathan where fear is managed by the state and used as a lever of control. Once we become invested in the machinery of the Leviathan -- its banking institutions, its public services, its regulatory and bureaucratic labyrinth -- we become more easily manipulated by the phantoms of these institutions. Fear allows it to grow.

The more self-reliant the man, the less important the machinery, the less susceptible to the manufactured crises of institutions and nations. The Leviathan has no use for the self-reliant man.

Through control of wealth, commerce, and education, the Leviathan has made the self-reliant man much more difficult to produce. On the other hand, the dependent man flourishes. They are born within our borders and they come from far and wide. A new serfdom has been created. And a mighty chain has been fashioned. We call it democracy. Love it.

But at least you can watch the NFL in high def while being ritualistically gang-raped.

The once mighty dream of America has become government-managed health care, Obama's teleprompter, and carbon enforcement brigades. Perhaps Hobbes was right. So is Obama.




***

In some ways, and to varying degrees, we each maintain an overinflated sense of importance -- a center-of-the-universe mentality that is monumentally out of proportion considering our relative existence to the unimaginable expanse of the known universe.

We are all equally insignificant when we stare into the night sky and across the starry expanse. The leviathan of universal order makes Hobbes look like a pussy.

Disorder Waltzing with Emerson's Ghost

"In a world where we are forced to conform to society, it is necessary to have personal chaos." ~T. Alan Armstrong

“What we call chaos is just patterns we haven't recognized. What we call random is just patterns we cant decipher. What we can't understand we call nonsense. What we can't read we call gibberish. There is no free will. There are no variables. There is only the inevitable.” ~Chuck Palahniuk

***

In the beginning, we are told, or at least 13.7 billion years ago, all matter in the entire universe was condensed into an infinitely hot, infinitely dense "singularity". How did it get here? From where did it originate? We have no idea. But science seems pretty certain that the universe did indeed have a beginning. "Hubble's Law" consistently demonstrates that galaxies are moving away from us at rate of speed proportional to their distance. Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) radiation is the pervasive evidence of the once infinite heat of this expanding singularity in which we now live.

Somehow, in some way, it all began.

Quantum entanglement implies that all of the matter in the known universe, all of the planets and stars and Hollywood actresses, everything that originated from this infinitely dense singularity of energy, is in some way connected. On an atomic level, all matter is one. There is a "New Age" stigma attached to this notion along with the archetypal image of the long-haired Wiccan who practices martial arts and uses crystals to commune with Gene Roddenberry's ghost -- but this idea of "oneness" is as old as it is new.

Imagine this: Life, or at least our own experience of it, is holographic in nature. We are a component of infinite consciousness merely having a finite, physical experience. We are all psychonauts with amnesia. To quote the great Bill Hicks' "enlightenment" routine -- all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration... We are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves... here's Tom with the weather. -- Truth can be found in strange places.

The quantum world is a bizarre world indeed. I have nothing close to the faculty to fully describe its nuances or to even to provide a competent synopsis. But there are certainly some underlying principals that resonate. The
observer effect, entanglement, the role of consciousness -- these are all components that harmonize nicely with ideas of human potential and human transcendence that I consider integral to the life experience -- at least my own. Clearly there are many physicists who are more cautious in asserting the role of the conscious mind in the creation of this holographic reality, but there are many who are rather bold in elaborating this connection. I am enough of a Romantic to believe that the latter are closer to the truth.

I now offer you this pine cone.

***

In an essay that I recently discovered by Ralph Waldo Emerson, entitled "
Compensation", he observes the underlying elegance of this entanglement as expressed in perceived opposites. Even in such "opposites", the nature of the counterpart implies connection. Unity. Synthesis:

POLARITY, or action and reaction, we meet in every part of nature; in darkness and light; in heat and cold; in the ebb and flow of waters; in male and female; in the inspiration and expiration of plants and animals; in the equation of quantity and quality in the fluids of the animal body; in the systole and diastole of the heart; in the undulations of fluids, and of sound; in the centrifugal and centripetal gravity; in electricity, galvanism, and chemical affinity. Superinduce magnetism at one end of a needle; the opposite magnetism takes place at the other end. If the south attracts, the north repels. To empty here, you must condense there. An inevitable dualism bisects nature, so that each thing is a half, and suggests another thing to make it whole; as, spirit, matter; man, woman; odd, even; subjective, objective; in, out; upper, under; motion, rest; yea, nay.

Whilst the world is thus dual, so is every one of its parts. The entire system of things gets represented in every particle. There is somewhat that resembles the ebb and flow of the sea, day and night, man and woman, in a single needle of the pine, in a kernel of corn, in each individual of every animal tribe. The reaction, so grand in the elements, is repeated within these small boundaries.

This elegant balance, or compensation, as observed by Emerson, is at the core of nature and existence. What appeals to me about this philosophy, as well as other perspectives and belief-systems which defy static, religious models of "good" versus "evil", is the notion that the universe acts in concert with our conscious experience. It is not independent of us at all. Nature supplies the compensation, we supply the choice given the circumstance -- and to many degrees, we even create the circumstance itself.

There is no independent "good "or "evil". Only action and reaction and the interpretations and intentions therein. There are no objects to consider -- just relationships. That does not mean that one cannot commit an "evil" act. Or that righteousness does not exist. Or your chair. Rather, both good and evil must exist. They demand one another.

Your chair is a bonus.

I have always had an inherent skepticism in viewing "God" as the spiritual personification of a king or ruler seeking to govern the behaviors of man and punish accordingly. It feels too primitive and tribal to attach such qualities to something as vast and magnificent.

Certain voices in the "religious" ranks may express the view that the AIDS virus is God's punishment for homosexuality. Others may view a natural disaster to be some form of judgement on the wicked. Primitive man would sacrifice to the volcano, to the river, to the sun. In many ways, such sacrifice was an attempt to create the same balance and compensation that expresses itself in the creation itself. Death brings about life.

Applying the laws of compensation to "punishment" reveal that a compelling balance is hidden within. Punishment could bring about one's enlightenment and spiritual dedication. In the end, if one believes that "God" intervenes in the affairs of men, then He arguably rewards wicked deeds. For there is no affliction that does not have its just compensation. It is inherent to the design. An eloquent expression, if not a bit of a tricky one. So punish me now, but "affliction shall advance the flight in me." Ultimately, it is my reward.

***
Emerson once stated that a part of wisdom is recognizing the journey's end in every step of the road. Every motion is a beginning and an ending. The moment is now. All at once. Every step forward, an end of a journey. To live as such, to liberate yourself from your own habits and institutional beliefs, to acknowledge the fluid pulse of consciousness as it fashions experience, this is transcendence. Or maybe I am just talking shit.

I believe in Spinoza's God who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of what exists, not in a God who concerns himself with the fates and actions of human beings. ~Albert Einstein

video


***

Even though I despise the New World Order and banking oligarchs who have been working behind the scenes to manipulate the world into a global fascism, I realize that even in matters of oppressive polity, there is balance, compensation. There is a natural cycle that exists which is larger than the elitists who seek to thwart this balance. And so it will fail. Their agenda will fail. and liberty will rise.

Until it is forgotten. And then the laws of compensation favor the fascist once again.

And now: Charles Hawtrey and the Deaf Aids...

Rainmakers and Reptilians

Illusional Delusional

"It's not a matter of what is true that counts but a matter of what is perceived to be true." ~Henry Kissinger, one evil fuck

I have always held that if there is any evidence that contradicts a given theory, then that theory needs to be re-examined. This does not necessarily mean that the theory is discarded altogether, but rather, at least it be introduced once again to the rigors of scrutiny. If a given anomaly is not an error or hoax, then a theory must be considered incomplete at best.

Ah, but modern science is more dogmatic than religion when it comes to the sacred cows of their "objective reality". The great narrative that they have fashioned becomes a rigid paradigm of concretized belief. The anomaly works against the plot of the story. It tries to show them an alternate version of the movie that they have been watching for most of their lives and careers. The anomaly must either be destroyed with layers of jargon, tied in mathematical knots, or ignored altogether. Because that's not how the story goes.

About 97% of the human genome is "junk DNA." Though this explains most politicians, what does it mean for the rest of us? The answer to this question, no doubt, is obscured by the illusions of science and culture which demand adherence to the Darwinian model and the prevailing theories of evolution. This being said, it seems that at least one of the group leaders for the Human Genome Project, Prof. Sam Chang, is not held captive by science's holy relic:

"Our hypothesis is that a higher extraterrestrial life form was engaged in creating new life and planting it on various planets. Earth is just one of them. Perhaps, after programming, our creators grow us the same way we grow bacteria in Petri dishes. We can’t know their motives - whether it was a scientific experiment, or a way of preparing new planets for colonization, or is it long time ongoing business of seedling life in the universe.”

“Soon or later, we have to come to grips with the unbelievable notion that every life on Earth carries genetic code for his extraterrestrial cousin and that evolution is not what we think it is.” A broken paradigm? Nothing to see here. Move along.

Humans carry 46 chromosomes while our primate cousins carry 48. Why would we lose a pair of chromosomes in the evolutionary process? How could it account for such a tremendous difference? Scientists point out that we didn't actually lose a chromosome as much as the 2nd and 3rd chromosomes were fused together... by nature, of course. Or Darwin himself. No evidence of genetic tampering by an alien species here. Move along.

The
Mitochondrial Eve theory, based on examination of the maternal line, reveals that modern humans appeared on the scene quite suddenly 170,000 years ago. According to the dogmatic narrative of science, the first civilization to appear in our story occurred about 5,000 years ago with the Sumerians. Stone Age farmers, the story goes, came pouring from the Zagros Mountains into the "fertile crescent" between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers in modern-day Iraq. They are remembered for the development of cuneiform, the first known system of writing. They also developed a clever system of "printing" using finely marked cylinders that they would roll across wet clay. And this is pretty much where the story ends in Western Civ 201 or high school World History.

But the Sumerians also created a complex mathematics. Developing the "place" concept, giving us the 360 degree circle, and the dirty "dozen" as a unit. This was complimented by a system of weights and measures used in everything from commerce to architecture. They also developed a complex system of astronomy, creating the first calendar and first known
map of the solar system (with 12 planetary bodies, including the sun and moon and mysterious planet X). Metalurgy, courts, laws, religion, medicine, botany, irrigation, agriculture, husbandry, textiles, seafaring, music, culture. Boom. 165,000 years of nomadic living and tribal cave-dwelling, then Boom. Civilization. Significant. Advanced.

No aliens? No Atlantis? The fact that disparate ancient civilizations develop similar monuments, mythology, writing, and culture completely independent of one another or a common "lost civilization" ancestor is just the way the story goes. Get over it. Move along. Nothing came before. Go away.

-This metal sphere with three grooved lines circling the equator was discovered in a Precambrian mineral deposit dated at 2.8 Billion years old.









-This ancient hammer or tool embedded in a piece of petrified wood dated at 140 million years old.








-This "spark plug", known as the Corso Artifact, was discovered encased in a 500,000-year-old mineral.









It is a difficult thing to divorce ourselves from our favorite delusional illusions. As such, we are constantly at odds over the narrative of life. This is the way the story goes. This is how it all began. This is where it all comes from. This explains the diversity of life. This is where we are now. This is where we go from here. Woven somewhere into these comfortable mythologies is a thread of reality -- perhaps the slightest strand of truth, right?

Most likely, everyone is wrong. Especially me.










(Mars is riddled with anomalies)










"I'm fairly convinced that we have discovered life on Mars. There are some incredible photographs from [the Jet Propulsion Laboratory], which to me are pretty convincing proof of the existence of large forms of life on Mars! Have a look at them. I don't see any other interpretation." ~Sir Arthur C. Clarke, Dec. 2000

The Great Pyramid at Giza is made of 2.5 million limestone blocks with each weighing an average of about 3 tons. Its entire mass is more than 6 million tons. Some of the stones were quarried from miles away.

The body of the Sphinx indicates significant water erosion.

The matrix is mighty, indeed. A given system of belief -- intricately connected to a series of neuro-networks firing and wiring and recombining and connecting to a larger array of concepts--becomes a part of our very identity. It is integral to who we are. To lose a given system, in many ways, is to lose a component of one's self. That is why all of our dogmas exist. Persist. Heavy and onerous.

The following video is a quick compilation of NASA's own astronauts referencing the alien activity in space. Of course, "bogey" and "alien spacecraft" mean "ice crystals".

Skeptics (hey, dad) often assert that it is impossible for human beings to keep a secret this large. Without mentioning The Manhattan Project or other top secret government activities that are only learned of after the fact, one can clearly see that the secret has not been kept. Whistle-blowers abound. The CIA propaganda that has permeated our media has conditioned the public to dismiss such claims as "bizarre" or "out there". But a mere cursory attempt at research reveals hundreds of very credible witnesses. From former astronauts, like Dr. Edgar Mitchell, to high-level pilots like John Lear (son of Lear jet inventor, Bill Lear), to military personnel from all ranks and walks of life. Hell, even Jimmy Carter reported seeing a UFO. The truth is indeed "out there". But to even take a step in the direction of reality, one has to divorce themselves from the multi-layered illusions of culture, science, religion, propaganda, and other "norms" and institutions that work to encumber the human psyche. Or not. Who knows?

video

The following amazing video is from NASA's STS-75 mission in which a 12 mile long electromagnetic tether breaks off and floats into space. The crew video tapes the tether as it drifts away. The unbelievable swarm of UFO activity is dismissed as "debris" or "ice crystals", but if you watch the footage, you will see many of these glowing, pulsing pieces of "debris" move behind the 12 mile tether -- this indicates that the so-called "debris" must be EXTREMELY large. Ice crystals the size of football fields. Who knew space was so dangerous. NASA tries to dismiss the incident. One thing is certain... this is not goddamn debris.

video

In looking back across human history and humanity's attempts to explain the mysterious elements of life and the universe, we see a comedy of errors and misinterpretations. No worries, however. I am certain that modern dogma concerning the nature of reality will stand the test of time, this time around. No such thing as ether. Nothing to see. The earth is hollow. Move along.

ANTIDOTE 2













(Nag's Head, North Carolina)

"Life and the world, or whatever we call that which we are and feel, is an astonishing thing. The mist of familiarity obscures from us the wonder of our being. We are struck with admiration at some of its transient modifications, but it is itself the great miracle. What are changes of empires, the wreck of dynasties, with the opinions which supported them; what is the birth and the extinction of religious and of political systems to life? What are the revolutions of the globe which we inhabit, and the operations of the elementsof which it is composed, compared with life? What is the universe of stars, and suns, of which this inhabited earth is one, and their motions, and their destiny, compared with life? Life, the great miracle, we admire not, because it is so miraculous. It is well that we are thus shielded by the familiarity of what is at once so certain and so unfathomable, from an astonishment which would otherwise absorb and overawe the functions of that which is its object." ~Percy Bysshe Shelley, On Life

Watch part 5, part 6, part 7, part 8
Modern environmentalism has nothing to do with naturalism. Environmentalism is a political paradigm while naturalism exists as a philosophical/spiritual/empirical perspective. Naturalism happens every time you feel the pulse of nature -- the aesthetic, spiritual, primal connection binding you to the natural world. Real. Tangible. Without force or state compulsion. Environmentalism happens when you donate to PETA or pay your carbon taxes to the globalist elite (fear "cap and trade"). Environmentalism happens when some third-world slum-dweller burns wildebeest shit to heat his genetically modified rice -- his nation never allowed to industrialize thanks in large part to the bureaucratic tyranny of the green stasi. Environmentalism happens when the family farm is regulated out of existence and nutrients are considered toxins by eugenicists at the UN.
When your property is confiscated or your back-yard garden is made criminal , you will not have to blame a naturalist. A twerpy, misguided fascist bureaucrat environmentalist, without doubt.
I'll take my hippie uncle who raises goats and grows his own herbs over the new green stasi any day. Even if he believes in Obama.

When I was a kid, my family would take annual trips to Nag's Head, North Carolina, near Kitty Hawk where the Wright brothers first flew, and we would stay in a rental right on the ocean. My parents and hippie uncles would take us out into the surf -- there we would get bombarded by waves, bounce over ominous swells, swim against a restless current, drift regardless of effort, body-surf back to shore. Repeat.
My sisters and I learned early to respect the immense power of the ocean. This ocean, I learned, is far greater than I. Far more powerful than my shabby mortal form.
Once, while a storm was brewing off in the deeper Atlantic, we rushed into the water to parley with the wild, choppy surf. Pyramidal waves would crash in from all sides, colliding, recombining, breaking again towards shore. Power and beauty. Danger and elation. Pure joy. Pure connection. A quarter of a century has passed, and I still remember the exhilaration of that moment as if I were just now drying off. Naturalism is when man remembers that he is a part of this Wildness. Beyond the matrix of culture and institutions. Somewhere back in that vast obscurity beyond the city... to steal a bit from Gatsby. (ahh, Gatsby).

Modern environmentalism is bureaucracy. It is merely another system of control and manipulation.
I wonder the size of the carbon footprint created by the "global warming" propaganda movement (now they say "climate change" -- Orwell applauds). I wonder if Obama's sexy bag of fairy dust can organically cleanse the cesspool of waste wandering the halls of deception in DC. or will his dust merely do what other magic powders are known to do? The narcotized mind of the public-schooled and television-reared American will prove easy to seduce.
I smell burning ether.
Remember how resplendent the landscape can be? Remember the beautiful mountains and snow-topped ranges? Recall the ambling creeks and rivers of your Huckleberry childhood? They are being strangled by the litter of your filthy existence. Your bowels and gastric system are less forgiving to the atmosphere than the mean emission of an adult male your size. You should surrender now before the wilderness of your childhood is strangled in toxic ruin. The teeming creek-bed where you once caught crayfish with some string and some bacon will become the lurid tarn of Poe's debilitating nightmare. Because of carbon.
Your carbon, fucker.

What a joke. Meanwhile, shitheads like Al Gore travel the world in private jets collecting Nobel Prizes (is this reverso-world?), Oscars, Grammies, Mtv surfboards -- all while lecturing the plebeians about the over-indulgent ways of their lowly flatulent existence. Oh, what a scam, brothers and sisters.
Who in the world wants polluted water, clearcut forests, animal slaughter, air pollution? Put down your glass of fluoridated water. Step outside of the illusion. The only significant man-made pollution comes from corporations and governments. And I'd rather see them both disabled than accept the green tyranny of total human regulation based on phony science and elitist manipulation. The minute that idiots like Nancy Pelosi get to "inventory" my life, I take my chances in the Amazon.
If it is a choice between absolute freedom and absolute tyranny, the answer is quite clear. Like Jefferson, I'll take the problems and difficulties associated with freedom over those associated with servitude. Any day. Regardless of circumstances. Regardless of lifestyle-change or societal collapse. The liberty of the individual is absolute. The onerous system I can do without. As can you.
I wonder the carbon amassed by an endless war on terror (oh, change). What will it be to mobilize the police state against the public (oh, hope)? Will we finally see the unleashing of hidden alien technology? Project Bluebeam? Underground military bases? Underground cities? Reptilian control? Dulce?
Calling them conspiracies makes you sleep.
How about that genetically modified antibiotic burger? Is it USDA certified? Feel safe now? Sleep.

We do not need this giant machine over us. We do not need to be regulated or ruled. We do not need to regulate or rule others. We need to stop empowering institutions over men. Governmental force and compulsion is the death of human nature.

Supernumerary Sleepers


“The Trilateral Commission is international and is intended to be the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of the political government of the U.S.” - Sen. Barry Goldwater

What have we become?

Sadly, most politics is viewed through the hyper-schism between the left and right. In media-politics, everything is spin. Democrat spin. Republican spin. We are led to believe that this is the total spectrum of policy debate in the United States. There can be nothing else. It's all about these two parties.

This is what's real.

We learn that the Republicans are the party of limited government and national security. Democrats are the party of civil liberty and the blue collar masses. Republicans support giant corporations. Democrats fight for entitlements and the poor. When you think pro-choice, you probably think Democrat. When you think pro-life, you probably think Republican.

Against the war in Iraq? Democrat. Can't stand illegal immigration? Republican. Likely to donate to PETA and call yourself "vegan"? Democrat. Clear-cut the rainforest and drink Bambi's heart blood? Republican. Issue by issue, state by state, red or blue. How sad.

We have forgotten the real dichotomy. The only one that matters. The only one that has ever mattered: Liberty versus Tyranny. Freedom versus Servitude.

Because of the illusions of choice presented by the two-party system, controlling the masses is merely a matter of controlling the two parties. The money apparatus has allowed the oligarchs at the top of the banking and corporate pyramids to manipulate this dynamic for the purposes of advancing global tyranny.

Though this was once veiled and distant, it is now upon us darkly.

We have a congress that neither writes nor reads the legislation that it imposes upon an anesthetized public. We have a military and intelligence grid run amok, spreading itself across the globe while creating a new surveillance society here at home. We have a president that serves as a showman and a distraction surrounded by entrenched establishment interests -- CFR and Trilateral Commission stalwarts -- who design and influence policy towards the interests of elite globalists and their fascist agenda of centralized control.

The most important pressure-points of government control -- economic policy, state policy, military and intelligence decisions --are all directed and dominated by Trilateral Commission elitists. This is no coincidence. Of course, the same was true of George W., and Clinton, and Bush senior... hell, even "I'll never tell a lie" Jimmy Carter, was a creation of Trilateral Commission co-founder, Zbigniew Brzezinski, the same man currently behind god-creature Obama.

Meanwhile, the hypnotized masses believe that they are voting for hope and change when the only thing that changes is goddamn middle-management. The oligarchs and elitists behind the scenes have completely taken control of the American Republic.
This is not a conspiracy. Wake up!

This paradigm of political control creates an illusion of choice, an illusion of difference. How else was Clinton able to sell the American worker and powerful union interests down the river with a globalist treaty such as NAFTA and still get re-elected with the enthusiastic support of the same constituency? How was Bush able to get the blind allegiance of Republican minions while heralding-in a new prescription drug entitlement and shitty No Child Left Behind education reform? I thought that Republicans were opposed to increasing the size of government and bureaucratic entitlements. I thought that Democrats opposed treaties that would create an exodus of American jobs.

When you wonder why the once mighty industrial base in the US has dispatched to China, or when you moan about the welfare state and your kid's shitty education, think no further than this illusion. The Democrat and Republican parties are two factions of the same whore-beast globalist hydra. Copulation is regulated. Grab your ankles.

Centralization of power continues regardless of which political party is in office. The reason that nothing ever seems to change in Washington is because it doesn't. Everything continues to flow in the inevitable direction of centralization and tyranny. Liberty becomes a phantom mythology and your freedom merely a state-managed carbon credit.

We are being had.

The reason why it's okay when Clinton violates the ethics of the left is because to people on the left, he is so much better than the frightening alternative.

And if Bush creates bloated government entitlements, at least he's not the other guy. I mean, c'mon... that guy's a fucking communist.

What a joke. They both service the same master. It's time to come to terms with this. Choice is dead. Liberty is dead. The Constitution is dead. Our country has been infiltrated and destroyed.

For the last eight years, the American left was in absolute turmoil over G. W.'s war-mongering, domestic spying, torture, and imperialism... but now that Obama is perceived to be in charge, the left is silent. Nothing. Because at least he's not the other guy.

Obama has expanded the war into Pakistan and plans to escalate the war in Afghanistan. He has argued "State Secrets" in regard to domestic surveillance more aggressively than evil Bush. He plans to create a "cyber-security czar" and ultimately set the military loose on the Internet. He will maintain the phony "war on terror" and continue to augment the architecture of the police state. Yet we hear nothing from the left. Silence. Because he is their guy.

And though the list of broken promises continues to mount, he is still their guy.

Predictably (and understandably), those on the right have watched in horror as Obama has worked to create a green American version of red China. Many can't wait to run out and vote Republicans into office in 2010 because of this fear -- an attempt to hinder a "communist" agenda by anointing the perceived opposition. What a waste.

When the right gets into power, they may appease their grateful constituency by reforming entitlements and streamlining bloated bureaucratic spending. Of course none of it ever goes away. It merely changes management. And any violation of liberties that may occur in the name of fighting terrorism will be as celebrated on the right as it is feared on the left.

That is, until the left gets voted into power and then tyranny ain't so bad. And no matter -- he's better than the other guy. Right?

The size of the federal bureaucracy grows no matter who is in charge. The size of the debt continues to climb and we continue to surrender our nation's monetary authority to a secretive group of private bankers no matter which party is at the helm. The pervasive growth of the military empire continues to expand and the technocratic surveillance and monitoring system becomes ever-more pervasive. Far less liberty in exchange for far more "security".

The controlled paradigm continues.

"We do not ride on the railroad; it rides upon us. Did you ever think what those sleepers are that underlie the railroad? Each one is a man, an Irishman, or a Yankee man. The rails are laid on them, and they are covered with sand, and the cars run smoothly over them. They are sound sleepers, I assure you. And every few years a new lot is laid down and run over; so that, if some have the pleasure of riding on a rail, others have the misfortune to be ridden upon. And when they run over a man that is walking in his sleep, a supernumerary sleeper in the wrong position, and wake him up, they suddenly stop the cars, and make a hue and cry about it, as if this were an exception. I am glad to know that it takes a gang of men for every five miles to keep the sleepers down and level in their beds as it is, for this is a sign that they may sometime get up again." ~Henry David Thoreau

SLEEPERS, AWAKE, ARISE!
