Tidbits: Apology, Discernment and Observation

Because of the sheer volume of information washing over the world, I find it difficult to focus on a single aspect or story that defines the moment.  All of it is important in some way or another to understanding the currents behind the news.  Like Fukushima flotsam, the headlines are but the detritus that floats on top.  The mass of the junk lies hidden under the surface, like an iceberg of events waiting to deal the fatal blow to the Titanic of civilization.

The first thing on my mind just now is the rather inflammatory events taking place between and owners.  As far as their row goes, I really don't have a horse in that race.  I am deeply grateful to both for having published my work in the past.  I hold the work of both men in high regard.  I have learned much from their efforts, and have gained some amount of wisdom as a consequence of their efforts.

It seems that Dr. Makow was attempting to publish an article promoting the idea that US nukes had caused the tectonic shift that destroyed Fukushima and environs.  Mr. Rense didn't buy the idea and refused to publish the article.  This led to a week-long and rather dramatic flare-up between the two titans of alternative news sources.

I can't say who's right or wrong, because I don't know.  I have read the tit-for-tat and frankly can't really understand the dynamics at play here.  From my vantage point, I see a familiar scenario playing out, one that I have experienced frequently throughout my efforts to change the world.

In just about any group with whom I've ever been involved, invariably there comes a time when the internal politics overwhelm the greater goals of the group.  It is a sad and ultimately pointless process, in which egos become deeply involved in proving one's self right and the other wrong.  There are aspersions cast about, usually that one or the other is a 'fed' or 'an agent' of the group's villain.  The group invariably forms factions, sides up and a power-play ensues.  It is precisely what I see going on here.  Same rhetoric, same process, same outcome.

At the heart of the matter is usually an issure on which no one will compromise.  Focus gets turned away from the bigger goals to argue over a minor stepping stone.  That Dr. Makow wanted to publish an article by another author is his right.  That Mr. Rense did not is his right.  Both are correct.

That Dr. Makow decided the article was so important as to cast aspersions at Mr. Rense seems to be the crux of the matter.  If we must find fault, then it is that among people working towards a common goal, especially one as important as what these two men are doing, passions will flare.  Everyone who thinks deeply enough and works hard enough to achieve a goal believes that their's is the best and only way to achieve it.  When others disagree, it can be very difficult to let go and keep working, or find alternative outlets and parallel channels.

When one is passionate about one's work, it is but a short step over the line when one perceives allies as hindering the effort.  Dr. Makow was at fault escalating into ad hominem attacks, but Mr. Rense was wrong to follow suit.  Sometimes the best response is silence.  But again, when passions are involved...
Richard Santroum - Powerful Saints
It is not often that I find myself defending Bammy, but in the name of intellectual honesty, I must point out things when I see them.  The artilce that caught my eye was Santorum accusing Bammy of a non-Biblical agenda.

This is a thinly veiled code meaning that Bammy isn't backing Israel to the hilt so that we can push the world into a convulsion of death and destruction and force Jesus into his Second Coming and prove that Christians were right all along, as we stand on the smoking pile of rubble that was once Western civilization.

Basically, what Santorum has accused Bammy of doing is not unquestioningly supporting a nation which has no lawful right to exist.  Furthermore, Bammy is not pushing global events to match the 'interpreted' script of Revelations.  This is absurd on its face, since Bammy has done his fair share of meting out death and destruction.  But obviously, he is not supporting supporting Israel's hell-bent agenda to wipe out the Middle East.

What is actually going on here is that the Zionists are promoting an agenda that will set up the proper enviornment to cause their Messiah King to appear.  They have successfully duped the Christians into thinking that their efforts will cause the second appearance of Christ.  Meanwhile, the Muslims are unimpressed because none of it promotes the re-appearance of their Imam Muhti, so they aren't playing that game.

In the end, all three groups are trying to destroy the world in such a way as to cause their long-awaited champion to appear, and prove them right after all.  Santorum has accused Bammy of not playing by the Judeo-Christian handbook and is using coded rhetoric to say so in public forum.

Excuse me if I sit this one out.  I don't buy the line that destroying the world to force God's hand is a lofty goal by any measure.  In the first place, it is the height of hubris to think that God can be forced by us 'mere' humans to do anything.  In the second place, if all three groups are wrong, which has a 99.999% liklihood by my estimation, then all that has been achieved is the destruction of the Earth.

By the way, I have seen no one point out that santorum is the Latin plural for santo, which means 'saints.'  Richard is French for 'powerful.'  You put it together.  Frankly, nothing about Rick Santorum passes the smell test, but then I think that about pretty much every politician of any stripe anywhere at any time.

I guess those high school Latin classes were good for something...
Another article that caught my eye involves the world's pyramids shooting off beams of light into the sky.  Assuming for the sake of argument that this is not utter rubbish, I lump it into the Gabriel's Trumpet reports from around the globe, concerning loud, omnidirectional sounds blasting out across the landscape.

Let's take for granted these things are real, and mix liberally with Dr. Joseph Farrell's hypothesis that the pyramids are part of a global network or grid that attempts to engineer the Earth's space-time environment.  And just for grins, let's add Vincent DiPietro's theory of galactic superwaves.  What do we come up with?

Well, we know that the solar system is entering something called the Local Fluff.  This is a highly magnetized cloud of gas and dust discovered by the Voyager spacecraft few years back.  Coincident with this discovery was one of the deepest solar minimums ever recorded, along with a number of changes to all the planets in our solar system.

For example, Pluto's atmosphere, which should be freezing and falling to the surface at this point in its orbit, is not, and rather is expanding.  Huge new storms have appeared on all the gas giant planets.  Mars' atmosphere is warming and the ice caps are not expanding in their normal cycles.  Venus' orbit is slowing down, some 6 minutes in the last 20 or so years, and the oxygen content of its atmosphere has greatly increased.  All the planets' (those that have one) and the Sun's magnetic fields are fluctuating and weakening.

Suppose this Local Fluff were a periodic event, possibly the leading edge of one of DiPietro's Galactic Superwaves.  Suppose that our ancient ancestors knew of these events and had the mathematics and capability to engineer a global grid to harness the Earth's hyperdimensional power to create a shield, a la Farrell.  Suppose the Gabriel's Trumpet effect is an electro-magnetic process similar to an audio version of the Aurorae Borealis and Australis (damned Latin is everywhere).  Finally, suppose global events were the result of humans being hyper-stimulated by this influx of energy, for better or worse.

I know that's a long list of suppositions, but it's interesting to note the picture that emerges when you put those pieces together.  And at first blush, the pieces do seem to fit.  Of course, this all hinges on whether the reports and photos of the pyramids are real, how much of the sound blasts are actual events and not hoaxes, and whether the hypthoses of DiPietro and Farrell are correct.  The astronomical effects are observable, though, and without other considerations, are interesting to ponder in their own right.

Even these three tidbits, taken together, seem to show a pattern.  There appears to be an increasing wave of divisiveness sweeping the world.  It has set brother against brother, caused accusations of 'my destruction is better than yours,' and even appears to be modifying the otherwise sedate workings of local space.  Social and economic upheaval are the order of the day.  People seem to be increasingly at each other's throats for little or no reason.

The question is, does knowing it has a central cause allow us to defuse the situation, or even treat the symptoms?  If so, then perhaps we are on to something here.  If not, then it is all simply unconnected events that are coincident with each other.

Frankly, I have never believed in coincidence.  There is always an underlying structure, even if the actors are not aware of it.

At any rate, it behooves us to sit back and get a little perspective once in a while.  Apologies, discernment and observation are the orders of the day.  We are continuously involved in the creation of the Universe, which is at once an amazing thing to watch, and requires careful and deliberate actions to work in harmony with it.

On the other hand, I could be wrong.
For those who have survived the screed, it's time for the Sunday Funnies!

I was testing children in my Dublin Sunday school class to see if they understood the concept of getting to heaven.

I asked them, 'If I sold my house and my car, had a big jumble sale and gave all my money to the church, would that get me into heaven?'

NO!' the children answered.

'If I cleaned the church every day, mowed the garden, and kept everything tidy, would that get me into heaven?'

Again, the answer was 'No!'  By now I was starting to smile.

' Well, then, if I was kind to animals and gave sweeties to all the children, and loved my husband, would that get me into heaven?'

Again, they all answered 'No!'.  I was just bursting with pride for them.

I continued, ' Then how can I get into heaven?'

A six year-old boy shouted out " YUV GOTTA BE FUKN' DEAD!"
