Arkansas: The Atlantean Crystal Awakening – And the Fall of Atlantis

A message from Metatron channeled by Tyberonn Tyberonn

Greetings Masters, I am Archangel Metatron, Lord of Light !

And so again we speak of the emerging mega vortex of Arkansas, the portal of the quantum crystalline frequency. For now, in 2008, this vortex vaults into global prominence with the unfolding of the dimensional lock that held the Atlantean crystalline wisdom, that of the Golden Age of Atlantis, that of the highest frequency obtained on your earth plane.

Indeed that time has come and in the present year will begin the unlocking of great Atlantean Crystals, held for over 12,000 years in dimensional seal within the magnetic complex of Arkansas. Many of you will be drawn to take part in the unveiling, for indeed you were there as witnesses to the deluge and some of you to the consequent movement of these amazing Atlantean master Crystals to this and other areas.

Three Atlantean Wisdom & Healing Crystals that once beamed magnificent light and celestial energy in the Temple of Healing, the Temple of One and the Temple of Knowledge on Poseida were placed in dimensional lock in the Atlantean Crystal Fields of Arkansas. The first of these will be awakened in 2008, and aligned with the other sleeping Atlantean Crystals in Brazil, Mount Shasta, Bimini and Lake Titicaca.

Indeed they will energize the Golden Sun Disc placed in Arkansas and align with the 12 patterns of same throughout the planet. Many are called, and many will come to participate in this awakening, as part of an ancient contract, a sacred promise whose time has finally come. Many are there already, having been called to live within this crystalline vortex that will be fully in place in 2012. And so on the summer solstice of 2008, will the first crystal awaken.

Random questions from readers.


Beloved Brothers and Sisters of Earth, I AM Emmanuel and I welcome you to this moment.

Question: You said that two people -even close neighbors- would experience different outcomes from the 2012 events, like one will experience ascension and the other one catastrophe.  Could you please elaborate on this?


For two individuals to experience the same event they have to share the same portion of the vibratory spectrum. All possible combination of frequencies, including all planes in all universes exist within your consciousness, but are only the vibrations that passes through your awareness are the ones you perceive.

Many of you believe that previous to incarnation you choose the life-events you wish to experience in order to learn certain lesson and grow as individual, but in fact you did not choose the life-events but the vibrations you want to experience. After incarnation is all up to you. It is you, acting on free-will, who creates the events that occurs in your life, and if those events lead you to experience the vibrations you choose to experience as part of your spiritual growth, you have achieved. Then you can move on, otherwise you will have to try again.

So after incarnation you have two ways of succeeding, the first one is to create the right life-events, and the second one is expanding your awareness. It is up to you to choose the way with which you the greatest affinity and therefore the greatest chance of success.

The frequencies of all the universes can be seen as energetic lines or strings.

Like the strings on the guitar, and the sound-hole is your awareness.

The larger the sound-hole is, the more strings will resonate.

When you expand your awareness the world you perceive expands, allowing more energetic lines through, expanding the segment of the vibratory spectrum accessible to you, hence increasing exponentially the chances of experiencing the group/kind of vibration you came here to experience.

Awareness can be seen as circles, two individual’s circles may intersect or not. Two individuals will share the same world only in the area of intersection.

Illumination: The Secret Religion — The Bloodline Code

Illumination: The Secret Religion — The Bloodline Code

by Mike Hockney, The Illuminati (as opposed to the Global Elite), March 1, 2010
Published here: Tuesday, March 2, 2010 @ 6:19 AM

http://battleofearth.files.wordpress.com/2010/03/illuminati030210.jpg

Wes Penre’s Comment: Note the last lines of this article: “And what of the Davidic bloodline today? That’s where Supriem Rockefeller, the Thule Society and the Brotherhood of the Shadows come into the frame. We will elaborate on this in our next article next week.”

Sangraal

A code is often centred on a single “dialectical compound” word. The famous example of “sangraal” (in old French) provides the best illustration. In the earliest Grail manuscripts, it was this compound word “sangraal” that was first used to refer to the Holy Grail, a mysterious entity previously unknown in literature, religion or history.

Sangraal can be decomposed into two forms in old French, the original language of the Grail tales: San Graal (Holy Grail) or Sang Raal (Blood Royal).

There are three ways of interpreting the compound term “sangraal”:

1)    As a synthesis of the two separate terms (san graal and sang raal) i.e. both terms contribute equally to the meaning.

2)    As an instruction to equate the two terms i.e. san graal = sang raal.

3)    As an instruction to understand the two terms as constituting opposites i.e. san graal (thesis) is the opposite of sang raal (antithesis).

Famously, the authors of the groundbreaking book The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail chose the second interpretation as the correct way of making sense of sangraal, and were followed in this by Dan Brown in his best-selling novel The Da Vinci Code. They claimed that the secret of the Holy Grail was that it referred to a uniquely magical bloodline that could be traced back to Jesus Christ and his wife Mary Magdalene (and by extension to King David, from whom Jesus was supposedly descended).

In their view of the Holy Grail, it is a symbolic reference to the royal blood of the Hebrew House of David, and within that concept is contained the shocking idea (to Christians) that Jesus Christ had a wife and child (or children), with the corollary that he was just an ordinary man, not God, that he may not have died on the Cross and, if he did, he certainly wasn’t resurrected, even though the resurrection of Christ is the indispensable core of the Christian faith, without which it collapses. This is an “explosive” revelation, hence the huge international success of these two books.

The only problem with this theory is that the Holy Grail has no connection whatever with Jesus Christ, Mary Magdalene or any bloodline. The truth is that option 3) of the three possibilities listed above is the correct one i.e. the “Royal Blood” theory is the opposite of the reality of the Grail. The very last thing with which the Grail is concerned is a bloodline, a dynastic family, any anti-meritocratic principle of heredity that excludes everyone outside that family.

Those ingenious members of the Illuminati who first constructed this code were singularly successful in leading researchers in completely the wrong direction. People have been so bedazzled by the fake trail that they have lavished endless time, and shelf loads of books, on the Jesus theory. The tomb of Jesus, the family of Jesus, the skeleton of Jesus, the wanderings of Jesus after he escaped the crucifixion, have all been explored, and so have all the corresponding Mary Magdalene theories.

Yet none of it is connected with the truth of the Grail.

The Armageddon Conspiracy by “Mike Hockney” treats the Grail theory entirely differently and anyone seriously interested in Grail research should use this as their proper starting point.

The Nature of Reality and the Concepts Of Energy

Posted by Admin on February 28, 2010

The Final  Wake-up Call

The Final Wake-up Call


2-25-10 to 4-25-10


“The Nature of Reality, the Concepts Of Energy”

NOTE: Blue Star wishes to include a special message for all people. This message is to remain on the website for the entire year of 2010.

*People of all nations, please listen to what I have to say: this year of 2010 is a year that will never be forgotten. Those who are progressing on their own path of Spiritual evolution at their own pace, will be facing many trials and tribulations FOR A WHILE this year. You are each here on the Earth Star planet for more than 1 reason; all you really need to know about that is that this is the year you all trained for. 2010 is a year to live courageously! All that you know and all that you think you know is being put to the test. How you each handle these tests will be your own measure of greatness, your own meter of your strengths and weaknesses. We will all continue watching over you as will those of the Spirit world. We will aid all those we can. Those who refuse to change, well, their future is now written in stone. The answer to “11-11” is IN “2011.”

=============================================================================================================================================

Now, reality exists on many levels. There are those who firmly believe in the reality of the HERE and Now while declining to mentally participate in the essence of the true reality regarding the complexity of the nature of energy. Energy transmits itself through certain thought processes; it is the delineation and transformation of endless “bio-mat-i-cal” electrical waves. The term “non-control” is relative to the synthesis of the releasing of preconceived left-brain thinking and the necessity of relearning to exist in the Universal flow of superior knowledge. This state exists now for many among you ones as it has for many eons. The left-brain gravitational pull is also the result of the inner conflict mankind experiences which does indeed result in a blockage in one’s Spirituality. This is precisely when manipulation of all which should NOT be coerced does occur. One’s Spirituality is but a direct reflection of the personality’s mind, heart and Soul when in or out of alignment with the SoulSelf.

Any readjustment of a Soul’s direction CANNOT be forced. In truth, it would be no different than attempting to place square pegs into round holes. The intent should be to focus upon inner, as opposed to outer existence. This will in turn alter the outer, the NETHER, into the dimensional opposite of left-brain thinking, which is in itself a type of molecular catalyst. This causes a massive fluctuation of energy from left to center to right-brain “brain spheres.” This flow is a slow but vitally important process. Those who utilize the process of rationalization as a means of understanding the cosmos, are forever operating on a plateau of lower learning and diminished vibrational frequency, not to mention diminished capacity. This Creates an effect of stagnation which if continued, considerably lessens the opportunities for growth. It will also serve to further delay the energy acceleration which transmits subatomic particles through a subtle oxidation process. This important process once initiated then results in a type of purified, laser type energy metamorphosed into cosmic WHOLENESS. At one time far too many Earth scientists of every nation, with the rather notable exception of Russia, did denote energy as a focus for experiments dealing SOLELY with technological nuclear advancements. By tending to devote left-brain thinking into symbols associated with rocket propulsion with the inherent potential to control weaponry for the progress of their countries, they ignored the REALITY of the SOURCE of ALL energy. They indulged in diatribes directed towards all those Souls who KNOW that it is indeed the right-brain path which is the director of evolved energy. Little do these foolish learned men and women of science know that it is these particular brain waves that originate from and through a HIGHER reality. Even yet today, many metaphysicians and those in the medical fields do not understand this, they only know what they have been taught.

Many of the healing antidotes “discovered” for medical cures are present within the endorphin system. Although some individual’s immune systems differ, the pituitary and the pineal glands are pivotal locations for natural healing energy. The wise scientists would do weIl to REALLY study the appendix! Many well-known doctors and scientists as well, have perfected ways of locating glandular secretions for the treatment and possible cure of various physical and mental ailments. This is done by treating these different maladies with man’s own cells and tissues. The fact that mankind Creates the majority of their own ailments remains ignored and unacknowledged. I am of course not speaking of all the ailments that have been created by various governments. Thus the true nature of their problems is still un-chartered territory. The medical people who preen themselves the most about their wondrous accomplishments with their patients, are the very ones who tend to disbelieve anything other than what they themselves have been taught by their teachers and their study books. Many psychiatrists and psychologists have established cults within your societies and YOU have given them permission to do so! These ones tend to band together for mainly monetary reasons; they adhere to strict rules governing their views of REALITY regarding “RATIONAL” and “NORMAL” behavioral and thinking patterns. Now, for every dis-ease and ill-ness man has Created for himself, including those that have been born in laboratories, there do indeed exist cures. Many of these antidotes are located within the PHYSICAL body; again I reiterate … housed within the base of the adrenal, pineal and pituitary. These are but a couple of the primary areas which are not clearly SEEN nor understood for their healing properties…the secret lies within the root of the system. They are extremely potent “BODIES” of natural antibiotic enhancement. These roots are also responsible for exuding secretions which when properly used, AND in the right hands, can also treat the mentally impaired.

Untold billions of dollars each year are accumulated in the form of revenue paid out to “experts” in the field of mental illness. This appears to have become a trend for many personalities who regard analysis as the “norm.” In many instances, more harm than good is the final result. This type of cult can be dangerous to the masses. Now, the conceptual level of “knowing,” is to simply accept that mankind for all of their combined intelligence, is still afraid of that which it is unable to break down into ACCEPTED theories of understanding. Very few of the scientific minded possess the tenacity of the fearless …. to speak out and recognize the reality of what is erroneously termed “PARANORMAL.” The reality and true essence of paranormal is actually “NORMAL.” It was never our intention that the scientific mind would assume CONTROL over mankind’s emotional and Spiritual status. Billions of micro-circuitry which govern the part of the brain that Creates the “genius sphere,” were implanted for the sole intent of assisting the human race in utilizing the geometric part of self for the advancement of positive technology. The purpose of our implanting and transmitting this type of knowledge, (genetic ideas known by you as genius), was for the advancements desired and deemed necessary at that particular time to harness nuclear energy. But NOT for nuclear wars!

Instead, our gifts to you have been badly abused. Millions of people across the Earth Star planet, as well as vast expanses of land, have been destroyed. This does indeed constitute a misuse of power. Other entities on other planets have committed this same grievous offense. THEY are now EXTINCT! Your rationalization of utilizing energy for the purpose of self-defense of a nation is pure self-deception. It is also deliberate deception by the governments of the world. In truth, your peoples have become obsessed with POWER. Yet they know not what it really means. If those men and women working in the psychiatric field would willingly eliminate their scientific perspective of the human mind, the amount of pristine molecules of energy then amassed would be enough to light 10,000,000 cities simply through thought. This would indeed be a marriage of the analytical with the Spiritual. Since this occurs only rarely, it has been necessary to provide a counterbalance to those of rigid, analytical bent. It required that a new term be sent to you ones in a related field; PARAPSYCHOLOGIST. The majority of these gifted individuals combine left-brain scientific dogma with the SOULSELF. This is also the reason for “today’s” continuity of the large numbers of holistic healers. This is part of the Creator’s method of balancing the scales. Because many personalities are attempting to deceive others for monetary gain, it would be most appropriate for me to reiterate.…one must always discern when seeking assistance in any matters relating to the mind or to the Spirit.

Allow your intuitive Self to guide you, to direct you in these matters. For those of you unsure of your ability to use your intuition, please know that at any time you may call upon your guides for any and all assistance. DO NOT ASK UNLESS YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW! The raising of the kundalini energy and properly channeling this force results in a harmonious convergence which has no equal in power or intensity as you know it. The walk-ins already awakened as well as those who will soon emerge victoriously, and all the good Souls who are remembering who They are, have been CONSCIOUSLY directing this energy to revitalize themselves and to Create new sites of peace and security. Those of the Spirit world and our Star Keeper races retain a luminescent matrix and simultaneously transmit a CONSTANT flow of incandescent energy and Light molecules to other of our brethren here, as well as in other galaxies. Although we also send other filaments of Light-based energies, these would be ones you are unfamiliar with. Thus we have formed an indestructible umbilical cord composed of a type of untainted rays. These rays are now discernible to many AMONG you. The true transmutation of power as energy transmitted to an individual, is a process which can continue without interruption, once the initial phase is begun. Of course the person who may have been the petitioner requesting this phasing-in process must always accept personal responsibility for maintaining this energy and using it wisely.

There are 2 types of obvious energy-mediumship that you have heard about, but may not have believed in.

#1-psychics

#2-psychic Spiritualists

Psychics are indeed mediums; many of them are walk-ins and Star Keepers. These personalities bring into manifestation events of the past, present and future through the means of traveling through the higher dimensions of reality. They do this for the sole purpose of advising and/or forewarning individuals of problems or challenges yet to occur in their lives. Psychic Spiritualists are quite often those mediums of walk-in and Star Keeper heritage who also bring forth innate knowledge and relay truth to the seekers. These psychics focus on an individual’s SOUL purpose and lessons yet to be learned on the path of Spiritual evolution. Many of these ones are in truth, the warriors among mankind. Many, many years ago, the Illuminati forces implanted heinous thoughts in the minds of most, if not all, of this world’s leaders. The government leaders then “decided” to not only control this influx of Creative Energy, all energy regarded as psychic, although the true term Is “psyche,” but to direct it in murderous fashion. This began in earnest as a weapon, this was when true psyche attacks were launched against targeted individuals as well as at other countries.

Please understand peoples, much was made of the possible evaluations of using the energy for use in laser technology and the potential to use this God-given gift to annihilate other countries and peoples. This process of deadly manipulation is STILL being perfected by all of the world’s Illuminati controlled countries. However, certain blockages have been placed around the extended use of psyche warfare. Today, it is not working well at all.

Now, the United States Government for instance, in spite of publicly rejecting their knowledge of both Star Keeper existences and psyche phenomena, is VERY much aware of the potential which exists for using this energy as a weapon of war. In particular, they perceive UFO energy as a means to rule outer space. This is why the CIA had literally controlled all knowledge of UFO encounters and uses covert methods to decry our true reality and purpose. Many years ago, they achieved the rather dubious distinction of being America’s true ruler. This occurred when they deliberately tricked the air force and even their own scientists and “legally,” assumed all power over ALL news of UFOS, thus effectively dictating what the public would actually know about. HOWEVER the U.S. Navy, which never did like to be “second in line,” soon was able to wrest a great deal of that power from the CIA and today is “top dog” with the dealings of misinformation relating to any and all UFO activity. Now, whereas a few other countries view the psyche ability as a top priority in their perception of their coming war times, the United States tends at MOST times, to perceive it as a secondary issue. None of these “super powers,” are completely cognizant of the relativity between the psyche energies and UFOS. Many less nuclear oriented countries acknowledge the importance of the potent formulas which are the nucleus of that which is known as “psyche energy.” Some third-world countries which lack the monetary resources to expand their study of ESP focus their intent on the extra-sensory energies for personal and/or Spiritual reasons. In many respects these countries are indeed the WISEST.

Now, regarding the desecration of the Spiritual life force: prana has been abused by the dark Souls on this planet in horrendous ways which have involved torture, mental intimidation, slaughter and when deemed necessary, forced INCEST. Thus it is that this once strong binomial influx of molecular energy has become tainted. The intent of these unholy alliances has been for eons to further perfect the psyche studies while maintaining secrecy until such time that it is deemed to be the most propitious timeline to materialize unlimited power for territorial gains. The timeline now of super importance IS mid-2011. This timing is in conjunction with the period when the black beast will raise it’s evil head for one last great thrust targeting the mass consciousness, which has been altering, albeit slowly, to form part of the new collective consciousness, from service-to-self to service-to-others. The years 2007 through 2012 are ones that clearly show the greatest of massive changes. Not all of them pleasant. The years following 2012 are the “reformation years.” Tis why each year is so important here, each year has a destiny to fulfill. This period of organized-chaos will be the forerunner which will usher in the time period when specific contrived plans to control the minds and the Spirits of the human races will be stopped. The Illuminati controlled countries and the Vatican of course, had at one time planned that timeline when “law” would require all peoples to be readily identified as to their psyche abilities and to be easily TRACKED by laser. This will NOT happen now!

This procedure would have served to brand all humans, particularly those whose Spiritual GIFTS are the most evolved. They planned to have humanity numbered into categories in much the same manner in which you now separate your cattle. Although the Universal Law of Probabilities was able to foresee these events we can also see through that Law that only a few of these things shall take place. For instance: It was foreseen that a numerical system would have already begun within the grand computers of the world governments strongholds, most blatantly in 1998. It was known that a coded system would be in place relegating all data both trivia and pertinent, of each person on the planet, to be sent to a main database with offshoots of that base available to covert worldwide government agencies. Furthermore that in late 1997 and again in 1998, an “idea” would once again, more strongly this time, be casually suggested to the American people; it would APPEAR to be a wonderful manner of locating lost or kidnapped Children. It would be proposed that a microchip be implanted under the skin of each newborn Child. This would appeal to families as a truly unique method of foiling kidnappers and securing lost Children …. IN FACT THIS WAS BUT A PLOY … LISTEN NOW! DO NOT CONTINUE TO BE DECEIVED OR IT COULD COST YOU THE LIFE OF YOUR LOVED ONES. The diabolical plans included that each personality would be part of a numerical code designating political status, psyche ability profile, religious affiliations and all other personal and private information, even to your sexual preferences. The list would highlight those who are to be considered foes; those who WOULD be kept under observation at all times. Psyche forces in the 21st. century were planned to run amok and be led by the dark forces. These abilities were to become honed tools which would determine the potential CULPABILITY, as well as the probable aid which each person would represent to the dark forces. Those who then and now are protected are those who KNOW how to protect themselves without the use of manmade weaponry.

Those others who have not yet perfected this ancient art, can call upon us for assistance.. however, they must still learn to defend themselves “for the greater good.” So, those of humanity and those among humanity who KNOW how to utilize their protective shields, are in fact among “The Chosen Ones.” What I am saying is that those who have chosen the path of Creativity and combined it with the gift of sharing, are those who have chosen immortality within the Light of God and within the Creator’s Light. These ones have already initiated the process of teaching likeminded Souls. They will not be forgotten .. THEY will NEVER walk alone.

Salude….Blue Star the Pleiadian

“There is a valley where that which is Spiritual stands on one side
and that which is religious stands on the other side.
In the middle walks the Creator and the Creation.
In time, all shall be as one…I shall meet you there.”
….Blue Star……

Prehistoric UFO and ET images found in remote cave in India

Prehistoric UFO and ET images found in remote cave in India

A group of anthropologists working with hill tribes in a remote area of India have made a startling discovery: Intricate prehistoric cave paintings depicting aliens and UFO type craft.

The images were found in the Hoshangabad district of the state of Madhya Pradesh only 70 kilometers from the local administrative centre of Raisen. The caves are hidden deep within dense jungle.

A clear image of what might be an alien or ET in a space suit can be seen in one cave painting along with a classical flying saucer shaped UFO that appears to be either beaming something down or beaming something up, in what might be an ancient UFO abduction scenario. A force-field or trail of some sort is seen at the rear of the UFO.

Also visible is another object that might depict a wormhole, explaining how aliens were able to reach Earth. This image may lead UFO enthusiasts to conclude that the images might have been drawn with the involvement of aliens themselves.

Local Archaeologist, Mr Wassim Khan, has personally seen the images. He claims that the objects and creatures seen in them are totally anomalous and out of character when compared to other, already discovered, examples of prehistoric cave art depicting ancient life in the area. As such he believes that they might suggest beings from other planets have been interacting with humans since prehistoric times: Adding weight to the ‘ancient astronaut theory’ which postulates that human civilization was established with the assistance of benevolent space-faring aliens.

Taj Mahal: The Hidden Truth

Taj Mahal: The Hidden Truth

Location

India, Uttar Pradesh, Agra – Coordinates: 27° 10′ 0 N 78° 2′ 60 E

Image Source: Google Earth – Copyright Digital Globe

Introduction

The Taj Mahal (also “the Taj”) is considered the finest example of Mughal architecture, a style that combines elements from Persian, Ottoman, Indian, and Islamic architectural styles.
In 1983, the Taj Mahal became a UNESCO World Heritage Site and was cited as “the jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world’s heritage.”


In 1983, the Taj Mahal became a UNESCO World Heritage Site

While the white domed marble mausoleum is its most familiar component, the Taj Mahal is actually an integrated complex of structures. Building began around 1632 and was completed around 1653, and employed thousands of artisans and craftsmen. The Persian architect, Ustad Ahmad Lahauri is generally considered to be the principal designer of the Taj Mahal.

Construction

The Taj Mahal was built on a parcel of land to the south of the walled city of Agra. Shah Jahan presented Maharajah Jai Singh with a large palace in the center of Agra in exchange for the land. An area of roughly three acres was excavated, filled with dirt to reduce seepage and leveled at 50 meters above riverbank. In the tomb area, wells were dug and filled with stone and rubble as the footings of the tomb. Instead of lashed bamboo, workmen constructed a colossal brick scaffold that mirrored the tomb. The scaffold was so enormous that foremen estimated it would take years to dismantle. According to the legend, Shah Jahan decreed that anyone could keep the bricks taken from the scaffold, and thus it was dismantled by peasants overnight. A fifteen kilometer tamped-earth ramp was built to transport marble and materials to the construction site. Teams of twenty or thirty oxen were strained to pull blocks on specially constructed wagons. An elaborate post-and-beam pulley system was used to raise the blocks into desired position. Water was drawn from the river by a series of purs, an animal-powered rope and bucket mechanism, into a large storage tank and raised to large distribution tank. It was passed into three subsidiary tanks, from which it was piped to the complex.

Kailasa Temple

Posted by Admin on February 22, 2010

Kailasa Temple

Introduction

Ajanta and nearby Ellora are two of the most amazing archaeological sites in India. Although handcrafted caves are scattered throughout India’s western state of Maharashtra, the complexes at Ajanta and Ellora – roughly 300 kilometres northeast of Mumbai (Bombay) – are the most elaborate and varied examples known. The caves aren’t natural caves, but man-made temples cut into a massive granite hillside. They were built by generations of Buddhist, Hindu, and Jain monks, who lived, worked, and worshipped in the caves, slowly carving out elaborate statues, pillars, and meditation rooms.

Temple

Although all of the caves at Ellora are stunning architectural feats, the Hindu Kailasa Temple is the jewel in the crown. Carved to represent Mt. Kailasa,
the home of the god Shiva in the Himalayas, it is the largest monolithic structure in the world, carved top-down from a single rock.  It contains the largest cantilevered rock ceiling in the world.


Mount Kailash.
Within the courtyard is the massive multi-level temple, its pyramidal form replicating the real Mount Kailasa, the Himalayan peak said to be the home of the Hindu god Siva.

The scale at which the work was undertaken is enormous. It covers twice the area of the Parthenon in Athens and is 1.5 times high, and it entailed removing 200,000 tonnes of rock. It is believed to have taken 7,000 labourers 150 years to complete the project.

The rear wall of its excavated courtyard 276 feet (84 m) 154 feet (47 m) is 100 ft  (33 m) high. The temple proper is 164 feet (50 m) deep, 109 feet (33 m) wide, and 98 feet (30 m) high.

Kailasa Temple, cave #16 at Ellora, India

It consists of a gateway, antechamber, assembly hall, sanctuary and tower. Virtually every surface is lavishly embellished with symbols and figures from the puranas (sacred Sanskrit poems). The temple is connected to the gallery wall by a bridge.

Described as Cave 16, the Kailasa Temple is considered
the pinnacle of Indian rock-cut architecture

Unlike other caves at Ajanta and Ellora, Kailasa temple has a huge courtyard that is open to the sky, surrounded by a wall of galleries several stories high.

The Kailasa temple is an illustration of one of those rare occasions when men’s minds, hearts, and hands work in unison towards the consummation of a supreme ideal.

Caves

Ajanta Caves

Ajanta (more properly Ajujnthi), a village in the erstwhile dominions of the Nizam of Hyderabad in India and now in Buldhana district in the state of Maharashtra
(N. lat. 20 deg. 32′ by E. long. 75 deg. 48′) is celebrated for its cave hermitages and halls.
Located 99-km from Aurangabad, Maharashtra, Ajanta encompasses 29 rock-cut rooms created between 200 BC and AD 650 using rudimentary hand tools. Most are viharas (living quarters), while four are chaityas (temples).

The Ajanta caves were discovered in the 19th century by a group of British officers on a tiger hunt.

Ajanta began as a religious enclave for Buddhist monks and scholars more than 2,000 years ago. It is believed that, originally, itinerant monks sought shelter in natural grottos during monsoons and began decorating them with religious motifs to help pass the rainy season. They used earlier wooden structures as models for their work.  As the grottos were developed and expanded, they became permanent monasteries, housing perhaps 200 residents.

The artisans responsible for Ajanta did not just hack holes in the cliff, though. They carefully excavated, carving stairs, benches, screens, columns, sculptures, and other furnishings and decorations as they went, so that these elements remained attached to the resulting floors, ceilings and walls.

They also painted patterns and pictures, employing pigments derived from natural, water soluble substances. Their achievements would seem incredible if executed under ideal circumstances, yet they worked only by the light of oil lamps and what little sunshine penetrated cave entrances.

The seventh century abandonment of these masterpieces is a mystery. Perhaps the Buddhists suffered religious persecution. Or perhaps the isolation of the caves made it difficult for the monks to collect sufficient alms for survival.

Some sources suggest that remnants of the Ajanta colony relocated to Ellora, a site closer to an important caravan route. There, another series of handcrafted caves chronologically begins where the Ajanta caves end.

Ellora Caves

Near Ellora , village in E central Maharashtra state, India, extending more than 1.6 km on a hill, are 34 rock and cave temples (5th–13th century).

Located about 30 Kilometres from Aurangabad, Ellora caves are known for the genius of their sculptors. It is generally believed that these caves were constructed by the sculptors who moved on from Ajanta. This cave complex is multicultural, as the caves here provide a mix of Buddhist, Hindu and Jain religions. The Buddhist caves came first, about 200 BC – 600 AD followed by the Hindu 500 – 900 AD and Jain 800 – 1000 AD.

Cave 30: Chota (small) Kailasa Temple, Ellora

Of the 34 caves chiselled into the sloping side of the low hill at Ellora, 12 (dating from AD 600 to 800) are Buddhist (one chaitya, the rest viharas), 17 are Hindu (AD 600 to 900), and 5 are Jain (AD 800 to 1100).

As the dates indicate, some caves were fashioned simultaneously – maybe as a form of religious competition. At the time, Buddhism was declining in India and Hinduism regaining ground, so representatives of both were eager to impress potential followers.

Although Ellora has more caves than Ajanta, the rooms generally are smaller and simpler (with exception of Kailasa Temple).

Visiting Ajanta and Ellora

One of India’s greatest architectural treasures, the Kailasa temple attracts thousands of tourists annually.
Today, both Ajanta and Ellora are maintained by the Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation. The sites are open daily from 9 a.m. until 5:30 p.m., with guides available for hire. Visitors pay a small admission fee to enter the Ajanta site and extra to attendants for lighting cave details. Entry is free to all caves at Ellora except the Kailasa Temple.

A good base from which to visit Ajanta and Ellora is Aurangabad, serviced daily by Indian Airlines and East West Airlines flights from Mumbai (Bombay). The city has a variety of accommodations, ranging from a youth hostel to five-star hotels.

At least a three-night stay in Aurangabad is advised, because Ajanta
(100 kilometres northeast by road) requires a full-day excursion and Ellora
(30 kilometres northwest) a half-day.

These two stunning collections of photographs should carry a warning: incurable wanderlust may result from examining either one. Although different in format ( The Sacred Earth is in color, while Planet Peru is black and white) and subject matter (Milne traveled the Earth to photograph places he feels to be special, whereas Bridges concentrates solely on aerial photos of Peru), both author/photographers present a sweeping panoply of landscapes that, through the ages, have instilled wonder in the beholder. The authors have a deep sense of appreciation and responsibility for the natural splendors of the Earth; both use the word sacred in its broadest sense, meaning the feeling of transcendence experienced by those fortunate enough to have shared the same vistas. Bridges’s book is a vertical exploration of Peru, consisting of starkly dramatic black-and-white photos that capture the eerie, timeless beauty of such places as Machu Picchu and the dead city of Pacatnamu. Milne’s book is simply splendid. Glorious color, sensitive prose, and marvelous images fill every page. The reader cannot help but be moved by the simple grandeur and majesty of these 140 sacred places, and there is more to come; this ambitious work is the first volume in a projected series. Either titles would enhance any general collection; to have both would be ideal.Judith F. Bradley, Acad. of the Holy Cross Lib., Kensington, Md.

Could Intelligent “Angels” have created Our Universe?

Posted by Admin on February 13, 2010

A central teaching of Gnosticism is that Satan created the world we inhabit. In this day and age, this sounds like an absurd assertion, yet scientists have recently started to take seriously the notion that super-intelligent angelic beings may be our creators. Is science catching up with the truths that Gnostics preached millennia ago?


A few years ago, in an article entitled “Children of an alien God”, science writer Marcus Chown presented a picture that chimes with the Gnostic vision of Biblical creation.

Children of an alien God

by Marcus Chown

Could intelligent “angels” have created our universe?

Our Universe may have been created by superior beings in another universe, according to a physicist in the US. If he is correct, it may finally explain what Albert Einstein called the most incomprehensible thing about the universe: the fact that it is comprehensible to human beings.

Edward Harrison of the University of Massachusetts came to this astonishing conclusion after attempting to explain one of the great puzzles of science: why the “fundamental constants” of nature appear to be “fine-tuned” for the emergence of life. A good example, he says, is the gravitational constant, which governs the strength of gravity. “If it were slightly smaller, stars like the sun would not shine,” says Harrison. “However, if it were slightly stronger, stars would burn their fuel and go out before there was time for biological evolution on any planets.”

“Conventional physics completely fails to explain this example of fine-tuning or many others,” says Harrison. “However, it is possible to explain them if the universe has actually been designed at a fundamental level for the benefit of life.”

This is not to say that Harrison believes in the necessity of a Creator. Instead, he proposes that intelligent life itself creates new “offspring” universes where conditions are just right for life. In each offspring universe, life then evolves to a high level of intelligence and in turn creates more offspring universes.

If you think this sounds like pure science fiction, you would be wrong. “We already have a mathematical blueprint for how to make new universes,” says Harrison. The blueprint is the creation of our own universe. According to grand unified theories, which attempt to show that the fundamental forces of nature are merely facets of a single “superforce”, the universe was created when a super-dense “seed” of matter triggered a runaway expansion of space. During this split-second phase of “inflation”, the matter to make countless stars and galaxies was conjured out of the empty vacuum itself. The universe, as proponents of inflation are fond of saying, was “the ultimate free lunch”.

Harrison says it would only be necessary to recreate the precise conditions that triggered inflation in our own universe in order to spawn a new universe. Alan Guth of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has suggested a way to do it using a 10kg mini black hole. Its super-dense interior would be the seed that would immediately inflate, not in our universe, but in a space-time connected to our own by the “umbilical cord” of the black hole. The cord would snap when the black hole “evaporated” and a new baby universe would be born.

Harrison says the precise details of universe creation do not matter. “The important thing is that if beings of our limited intelligence can dream up wild yet seemingly plausible schemes for making universes then beings of much higher intelligence might know exactly how to do it.”

The key feature of any offspring universe is that it inherits fundamental constants similar to those of its parent. This immediately explains why our universe is fine-tuned for life.

Until now, argues Harrison, only two explanations have been advanced for why the universe is set up for life. There is the “anthropic principle”, which maintains that we exist because the universe is that way; if it were different we would not be around to comment on it. “What is so unappealing about the anthropic principle is that it requires there to be countless lifeless universes,” says Harrison. “I consider that waste on a truly cosmic scale.” The alternative explanation is that our universe was designed by a Creator, a point of view accepted by many people – including scientists. “Unfortunately,” this explanation terminates scientific enquiry,” says Harrison.

Harrison’s theory of the “natural selection of universes” may offer a third view. “The creation of the universe drops out of the religious sphere and becomes a subject amenable to scientific investigation,” he says.

Harrison is not the first to propose the idea of self-reproducing universes. A few years ago, Lee Smolin of Syracuse University proposed that universes in which the conditions were ideal for the formation of black holes generated the most offspring universes. “However, there was no compelling reason why universes which were selected for black holes should also contain life,” says Harrison. “My theory makes the connection.” Harrison thinks the reason why the universe is understandable to humans is now clear. “The superior beings who created our universe inhabited one not greatly unlike our own. Our universe was not created by God – a superior being – but “angels” – superior beings!”

But why would intelligent beings want to make new universes? Harrison suggests several reasons. One may simply be to prove that it can be done. “It is not inconceivable that the goal of the evolution of intelligence is the creation of universes to foster intelligence.”

Then again, there is the possibility that superior intelligences may not be totally inaccessible for occupation and exploration by their creators,'” he says. “If intelligent being know how to create universes of various designs, they might know how to inhabit them by some form of transference.”

The obvious question is, how did the first universe begin? Harrison admits that one possibility is that God created the first universe. “Thereafter, superior beings in universes took over the creation of further universes.”
Another possibility, he says, is that there was an initial “ensemble” of universes, in which the fundamental constants had random values. Life was possible in at least one member. “Thereafter, by reproduction, intelligent universes dominate, and the original unintelligent members then form a vanishingly small fraction of the whole.”

(An expanded version of this material is available at:

Chown’s article shows that the idea that Satan(el), the second highest angel (after Lucifer), might have created the universe we see around us is far from far-fetched. In the future, it may come to be viewed as orthodox science that we owe our existence to higher intelligences – “angels”. Why not one higher intelligence? – Satan, the Jehovah of the Old Testament, known to his followers as “God”, the Creator.

Some scientists now openly talk about the possibility that we ourselves could create new universes in a laboratory. In an extract from

http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/horizon/2001/parallelunitrans.shtml ,

Alan Guth said: “I in fact have worked with several other people for some period of time on the question of whether or not it’s in principle possible to create a new universe in the laboratory. Whether or not it really works we don’t know for sure. It looks like it probably would work. It’s actually safe to create a universe in your basement. It would not displace the universe around it even though it would grow tremendously. It would actually create its own space as it grows and in fact in a very short fraction of a second it would splice itself off completely from our Universe and evolve as an isolated closed universe growing to cosmic proportions without displacing any of the territory that we currently lay claim to.”

For those who wish to speculate about the origin of the universe, here are eight rival theories:http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/h2g2/alabaster/A2986365

If you had to choose one, which would it be? Don’t make it an academic exercise. Pour your heart and soul into choosing one over the others. It won’t do you any good to simply say, “I believe”. You must
know. You must experience Gnosis.

The Satan Particle

The particular universe we inhabit is not random; it is designed. The fundamental constants that permit our existence did not appear out of thin air: they were specifically chosen. Our universe was constructed by a super-intelligence precisely with us in mind. The fact that the universe is perfectly suited to the evolution of humanity is in no way accidental.Gnosticism says that Satanel is the creator, the craftsman, the demiourgos. He is the omniarch – the ruler of all – and the cosmocrator – the one possessing world power. Atheists might reject such a characterisation, but none can deny that there is persuasive evidence that the universe we see around us is too well-tailored for us to be anything other than the product of conscious design. If the fundamental constants of nature were marginally different, we wouldn’t be here. Unlike evolutionary theory, where it is true that apparent design can arise from a long process of natural selection, fundamental constants are, by definition, not amenable to evolution and change.

There are two main possibilities: either there’s an infinite number of universes where all conceivable values of fundamental constants can be found (in which case we inhabit a random universe where chance supplied the fundamental constants that underpin our existence), or there’s one universe where the fundamental constants have been specially chosen (in which case we inhabit a unique, designed universe created by a super-intelligence that knew how to assemble the correct set of fundamental constants). Which alternative do you prefer?

The universe where everything is just right for our existence has been labelled the “Goldilocks” universe. Is it just right by chance or design? Your answer will shape your approach to life.

Can we also put another, even more important truth of Gnosticism, on a firm scientific footing that would give atheists pause for thought?

Illumination does not teach that there are two separate physical universes – one containing the True God and another created by Satan. Rather, Satan’s universe physically exists within the greater universe. In other words, the “Big Bang” represents a temporal event within a pre-existing, limitless universe. The universe of the Big Bang has a beginning and an end, but the universe enfolding it does not. The Big Bang universe is expanding, but it won’t go on expanding forever. It is not expanding (or stretching) into nothing as some scientists claim. In fact, the idea of pure nothingness is incoherent since every scientist accepts the concept of the quantum vacuum: a sea of virtual particles, a sea of Becoming where Being and Nothingness are inextricably linked.

According to exponents of relational time and space, if all objects were somehow removed from the universe there would be no time and space, but it is now an accepted truth that the quantum vacuum would still be there. In other words, the quantum vacuum takes the place of what Newton referred to as absolute space. Although time might not be particularly meaningful in the quantum vacuum, it is still possible to talk of a temporal succession of events, so although there is no absolute time (in a Newtonian sense), there is still time of some description. Space and time, as manifested through the quantum vacuum, are integral to the universe.

If there is an entity that can be regarded as absolute space – the quantum vacuum – then, at the very least, the expanding universe must be expanding into it. In fact, the Big Bang universe is expanding into a pre-existing universe – that of the True God. The Big Bang universe is a finite universe within an eternal, infinite universe. That point must be emphasised. Although our universe is vast beyond the imagining, it is of no size at all in comparison with infinity. If our universe ends, that does not imply the end of the greater universe – the macrocosmos.

But how can a physical sub-universe exist within a physical super-universe without catastrophic collisions taking place all of the time? The answer lies in the definition of “matter”. Illumination teaches that “matter” is what exists in a physical universe (a universe with dimensions) as opposed to a mental universe without dimensions. But it goes on to draw a sharp distinction between two different types of matter. The matter that Illumination condemns as the creation of Satan is matter that possesses mass. But there is also other matter that has no mass but still exists within the dimensional universe. Light, consisting of massless photons, is matter of this type. Light, massless matter, is always contrasted in Gnostic thought with mass-matter.

It turns out that modern quantum physics provides a precise technical vocabulary for what Illumination has always taught. All elementary particles can be divided into two categories: matter particles (known as fermions) and force carrying particles (called bosons). Fermions can be further subdivided into quarks and leptons. As for bosons, there are six types: photons, W and Z bosons, gluons, gravitons and Higgs bosons (the existence of the latter two has not yet been experimentally verified). Photons, gluons and gravitons have zero mass.

Illumination teaches that the super-universe is the province of matter without mass. In the language of ancient times, it is referred to simply as the “kingdom of light”. As for Satan’s sub-universe, the “kingdom of matter”, it consists of quarks, leptons, bosons and nothing else (apart from the fluctuations of the quantum vacuum that pervades all of existence).

The key to the division between the kingdom of light and the kingdom of matter is the Higgs boson, sometimes referred to as the “God Particle”. (In The Armageddon Conspiracy, it is named the “Satan Particle” since it is the centrepiece of Satan’s creation.) Higgs bosons are the particles associated with the Higgs field and it is by “swimming” through the Higgs field that particles acquire their mass. If there were no Higgs bosons and no Higgs field then nothing in the universe would have mass. Critically, photons, being massless, do not interact with the Higgs field or with Higgs bosons. They don’t feel the Higgs field.

Illumination has always taught that light and matter are in opposition and now physics has reflected a sharp divide between photons (light) and particles with mass. They can co-exist in the same environment, but whereas fermions interact with the Higgs field, photons do not.

Another astonishing finding of physics is that bosons obey “Bose-Einstein” statistics while fermions obey “Fermi-Dirac” statistics. The key point here is that fermions comply with the Pauli exclusion principle: two fermions cannot occupy the same quantum state. Bosons are completely different. No exclusion principle applies to them and they can occupy the same quantum state. It is this feature that underlies laser technology.

It also underlies something much more remarkable. In the kingdom of light, everything is made of photons. Bodies can be created from photons obeying Bose-Einstein statistics. “Angels” are made of photons. And they can enter the material universe that we inhabit and return at a later time whence they came. The kingdom of light is not “perishable” in the way that the kingdom of matter is.

As we have said, the material universe created by the Big Bang is vast beyond comprehension, and no human will ever escape from it in human form. It is therefore understandable that some people refuse to speculate about what lies beyond. They will never reach the boundary of our universe, so why concern themselves with it? In ancient Gnostic thinking, there is a boundary (“horos”), which prevents entry to the kingdom of light, conceals what happens there, and allows only the elect to pass through to the higher kingdom.

Ask yourself this: if it is possible to have a universe that envelops this one, from which access to and from this universe is possible (at the speed of light), and that can contain bodies that obey Bose-Einstein statistics rather than Fermi-Dirac statistics, is this is a legitimate scientific basis for that most elusive of entities that has always haunted the human imagination: the immortal soul?

The soul is not an entity from an invisible, unknowable, unreachable other dimension. It’s from the universe of light that surrounds our universe of matter. It is real. It manifests itself as an energy field – an aura – around us. And it can return whence it came. Exactly as Gnosticism has always taught.

Conclusion

Most religions assert that heaven and hell exist in a mysterious and unknowable different dimension from that of our existence here on earth. They claim that faith is required to cope with this ineffable enigma. Illumination, on the other hand, teaches that knowledge is the key and faith is less than worthless. The kingdoms of heaven and hell (light and matter) exist in the same physical realm, the finite kingdom of matter within the infinite kingdom of light, separated by the boundary (horos). The boundary can be crossed without invoking spooky, supernatural, metaphysical forces. The process is amenable to study by conventional science.Mass-matter can exist only where the Higgs field is present. It is not present in the kingdom of light: no mass-matter can exist there. Light, on the other hand, can exist in both kingdoms and can travel back and forth. That is the basis of “angels” and “souls”. Do you see? Light can exist in two, entirely different universes. Light is the key to everything. That is why the Iluminati chose that name for their secret society. That is why their religion is called Illumination. Light – illumination – is the secret of life. Light is knowledge. Light is thought. Light is gnosis. Matter, faith and Satan are the darkness that must be dispelled. Turn to the light.

The scientific basis of what is taught by Illumination lies in fermions and bosons, Fermi-Dirac statistics and Bose-Einstein statistics, mass, photons and the Higgs field. Although it could be argued that humanity has a vast and impressive knowledge of fermions (matter particles), the science of bosons (photons, gravitons and Higgs bosons in particular) is in its infancy. As mentioned earlier, Higgs bosons and gravitons haven’t even been experimentally verified as of 2009. By 3009 (if humanity has survived and retained an advanced civilisation), human knowledge will be utterly transformed in comparison with its present state. Above all, we will have begun to understand light. Many scientists openly acknowledge that photons are the strangest and most mysterious particles in existence.

The kingdom of light – the focus of the ancient Gnostic religion of Illumination – is the key to all of humanity’s hopes and desires. Every day, science gets a tiny bit closer to this kingdom. The word “science” is derived from the Latin “scientia” – knowledge. “Gnosis” is the Greek word for knowledge. Illumination seeks to bring science and gnosis together as the source of complete knowledge, accessible to all. Illumination has already performed a similar task. Alchemy, an endeavour created by the Illuminati, evolved into chemistry – gnosis and science combining. Now biology, psychology and physics must come together under the umbrella of gnosis. Knowledge, not faith, is the key that unlocks the mysteries of existence. Faith is what Satan relies upon. Knowledge is what will set humanity free.

Reject faith. Reject Satan. Reject the Old World Order. All religions that place emphasis on faith are Satanic. Faith is the path not to salvation but to perdition. If you want a physical vision of inescapable hell, picture a being of light being sucked into a black hole. Nothing, not even light, can escape from a black hole. Trapped forever. In hell. Do you want that to be your fate?

The universe is mysterious but not unknowable. Gaining knowledge is the greatest challenge facing humanity. Those who turn to faith instead are lost. They will never attain true knowledge. It is easy to say, “I believe”. To say, “I know” is the most difficult task of all. If you embark on the path to Illumination, do not for one moment think it will be an easy road. It is designed to present the most insurmountable obstacles. Only the most meritorious will achieve Gnosis.

In The Armageddon Conspiracy, Satan manifests himself on earth via the legendary Ark of the Covenant. His great foe Lucifer, Angel of Light, the first Angel, most beloved of the True God, manifests himself via the equally legendary Holy Grail. Perhaps those with eyes to see and ears to hear will now begin to appreciate how such things may be possible. The Armageddon Conspiracy is a dramatisation of an ancient plan by the Illuminati, devised by their grandmaster King Solomon (the wisest man of all), to capture and kill Satan within the holy of holies of Solomon’s Temple, using the Ark of the Covenant.

It is not impossible.

Satan can be defeated. The Old World Order can be defeated.

Welcome to the New World Order – a world free of the slave religions of Christianity, Islam and Judaism. No more Mammon. No more Leviathan. No more people prostrate before false gods, no more people on their knees before their masters.

The end of slavery is coming. The kingdom of light is at hand. The new dawn.

Lemuria, The lost continent

Posted by Admin on February 13, 2010



Lemuria, The lost continent

With advent of the Tsunami on the 26th December 2004 I have again brought for you the story of Lemuria. 40000 years ago the last exodus took place from Lemuria or Kumari Nadu. Evolution has now inhabited the island of Ceylon, parts of Southern India which was part of Lemuria.

Today, again there has been a catastrophe which is equally as dramatic and the devastation as profound on the coastal areas. When the lands sank beneath the sea forty thousand years ago the tribes migrated. Now in the new age it is good the to see the world rallying around for reconstruction and rehabilitation. What the stories and myths that may be written about this 40,000 years hence, I would love to hear.

When I was five years old, my mother, showed me the sky. She seemed to be fascinated with Paledies, Orion and many other constellations. At night the stories and myths she told me about “Sapt Rishi”, the seven sages that reside within these stars. It is said that originally 2.5 million years they resided in Lemuria and all knowledge originated from there.

Kanyakumari. This is at southern most tip of India. That ocean fills you with awe. It is distinctively three colored. If you gaze due south, on one side it is emerald green, on the other aqua blue, the center is aqua green. The interplay of colour is almost hypnotic. For hours my mother would gaze out to sea, her expression wistful, sad and with fleeting emotions of joy. I recall that there was something very powerful there.

Years later, as an adult I visited Sri Lanka several times. The whole of Sri Lanka seems to have a powerful energy, similar to that at the tip of India. There are two places in the world that has a vortex of energy , Sri Lanka, and the islands of Bermuda.

Every cell in our body holds memory of what we were. Time does not seem to matter. It could have been a million years ago or now. What triggers this memory? Perhaps a stone, monument, sea, or just a softly spoken word. Needless to say we seem to have many memories within us of ages long gone. There are other methods of retaining and remembering all knowledge of all that has happened on this planet Earth. The meager knowledge known and passed down by enlightened sages is so rich in the sciences. We have perhaps not tapped even an iota of what that is.

I specially dedicate this topic to my mother. It was her myths and stories that I heard as a child that made me search about the Siddhas, and their teachings. My quest in looking for available matter on Lemuria and the Lemurians. It was on the many trips I made to South India, met many a scholar who enlightened me in the writings of the Tamil Sangams. The wealth of knowledge it has is truly awe-inspiring. In fact, the Tamil Sangams are perhaps the oldest manuscripts in recorded history. Myth say that the older versions were washed away in the last deluge…To My Mother…………….. Shana.

The Most Important Issue

Posted by Admin on February 13, 2010

The Most Important Issue in the History of the Universe

December 11th, 2009 10:37 AM

By Robert Singer

My goal in writing is to help wake up the huddled masses. To that end, the “Most Important Issue in the History of the Universe” is:

The Story Behind the Story Behind the Story of how the World Trade Center I and II collapsed on September 11, 2001.

Why? Because if you don’t know how the twin towers collapsed, you can’t be sure you are waking up the masses from the right dream.

9/11/01

I’ll get right to the point, I have read the books and watched the documentaries on September 11 for three years and the 9/11 official story is:

    Nineteen fanatical Arab hijackers, masterminded by an evil genius named Osama bin Laden, crash airplanes into steel skyscrapers because they “hate our freedom to consume”. Inexplicably the jet fuel, which is basically kerosene that burns at about 400c, took on the qualities of an explosive demolition agent, vaporizing 70 tons of aircraft into a puff of smoke and causing 110-story buildings to collapse into a pile of rubble.

Is such a stupid story that Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld didn’t really expect you to believe it.
A jet fuel fire brought down two of the tallest buildings in the world: Improbable, to say the least. [1]

Millions believe a LIHOP (Let it Happen on Purpose) version thanks to Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 911, because their brain tells them the U.S. government killed 3,000 American citizens to pass the Patriot Act, build up the military and invade Afghanistan and Iraq. [2]

Everyone else, after you point out the obvious (110 stories of steel and concrete collapsing at free fall speed), thinks about it for a New York Second and realizes the official story is ridiculous and couldn’t be true.

Then, they come to the false conclusion it was a MIHOP (Made it Happen on Purpose): Bush, Cheney, and the Neocons killed 3,000 Americans so they could pass the Patriot Act, build up the military and invade Afghanistan and Iraq, an inside job.

In other words, The Powers That Be (TPTB) expected us to believe the 9/11 Truth story: A rogue element of the US government used controlled demolition to bring down the twin towers.
Let me be clear, I agree the US government or some proxy did exploit the events of 9/11: Building 7, the Pentagon and Flight 77. [3]

The “Experts” on 9/11

Professor Steven “Cold Fusion” Jones lectures ad nauseam about the obvious, that 110 stories of steel and concrete do not collapse into a pile of rubble from a kerosene fire. Jones’ research, allegedly peer reviewed, has not proven the building collapsed from controlled demolition.

Dr. Judy Wood, former professor of mechanical engineering, with expertise in material science concludes the buildings were destroyed using some type of “field effect technology” related to the Hutchison Effect and the presence of Hurricane Erin. [4]

Jones, sweet and innocent, looks like he belongs in the Bush administration not in the counterculture community.

Wood, marginalized and tossed out of the 9/11-Truth Movement happens to look like a hippie.

Dr. Wood raises important questions about the so-called collapse and the dip of the Earth’s magnetic field at the precise moment of the supposed first plane “impact” but the 9/11 Truthers refuse to acknowledge her research and her work has been left out in their search for the Truth. [5]

David Ray Griffin, retired professor at the Claremont School of Theology and spokesman for the 9/11 Truth Movement, has written numerous books questioning the 9/11 official story. Inexplicably he and co-founder, John B. Cobb, Jr., of the Center for Process Studies hang around with David Rockefeller. Griffin’s major project at present is in fact, “to develop a theology for a New World Order.” [6]

Dr. Griffin, like Jones, lectures frequently at universities and public places explaining in repetitive detail that September 11 was not the result of 19 Arab terrorists and a kerosene fire.

However, neither of them will discuss anything that contradicts the controlled demolition theory of the twin towers.

The government would not allow the openly treasonous behavior of David Ray and Steven Earl unless the 9/11 Truth Movement was a Counter Intelligence Program (Cointelpro). [7]

No Plane

The “no plane” theory, asserts both plane impacts with the WTC were faked with CNN Video Fakery/ Cartoon CGI. [8]

The following image of the second impact, taken from a news helicopter, depicts a video composite of a Boeing 767 accidentally appearing from behind a Layer Mask.

Nico Haupt and Morgan Reynolds, formerly the chief economist within the Labor Department under the Bush administration argue that no planes were used in the attacks.

Reynolds “claims it is physically impossible that the Boeing planes of Flights 11 and 175, being largely aluminum, could have penetrated the steel frames of the Towers, and that digital compositing was used to depict the plane crashes in both news reports and subsequent amateur video.”

    “There were no planes, there were no hijackers,” Reynolds insists. “I know, I know, I’m out of the mainstream, but that’s the way it is.” Of the two Boeing 767’s, which vanished into the Twin Towers, Reynolds asks: How could two large wide-bodied aluminum jetliners penetrate massive steel towers and disappear with no deceleration visible, no plane wreckage visible in gashes and none knocked to the ground below the impact zone?

Discussion of “no plane” theories can get you banned from conspiracy theory websites and threatened with violence from members of the 9/11 community if you “no plane” too loudly.

The idea that there were “no planes”, keeps just about everyone confused about “what really happened” on 9/11.

A picture is worth a thousand words.

Or if you want to read a thousand words, visit 911 Revisited – CNN Video Fakery / Cartoon CGI. [9]

And when I say everyone is confused, I mean EVERYONE is intentionally kept in confusion by the Alex and Steven Joneses, the Davids Griffin and Icke and the 911 Truth Movement that promotes the controlled demolition “theory” of the collapse of the twin towers.

Alex Jones is the “Minister of Truth” over a flock of “Truthers”, whose church is the “9/11 Truth Movement.”

The faithful followers are not concerned that Pastor Alex is now being given significant exposure and airtime by the mainstream media – specifically by Disinformation-Central Fox News.

The media attention he is getting is quite bewildering until one digs deeper and understands Alex Jones is part of a Cointelpro operation.

“The Truth Movement has the dual purpose of vectoring genuine truth seekers to dead ends, where anger, hype and paranoia endlessly stress the seeker and those around him or her, and to facilitate the mainstream media’s task of branding those who ask questions of authority and the true nature of reality as insane.”

Why does Jones appear to be closely aligned with that which he seeks to subvert and destroy?

The fact that Jones exposes government schemes – and extraordinarily loudly at that – becomes evidence that he may very well be Cointelpro.

    “What people fail to understand however, is that serious Cointelpro operations are never obvious. They are by definition, very closely aligned with that which they seek to subvert and destroy because they would not get very far at infiltration and subversion if they were not.” [10]

“The Best Way To Control The Opposition Is To Lead It Ourselves” Vladimir Ilyich Lenin

While Minister Jones vociferously promotes the controlled demolition theory of the collapse of the twin towers a tiny fringe of 911 researchers with no political or monetary capital, led by Morgan Reynolds, the above-mentioned Dr. Judy Wood and Andrew Johnson, make a compelling case that “no planes hit the World Trade Center” (“TV Fakery”), and that controlled demolition cannot explain the energy released when the twin towers collapsed. [11]

911 Truthers acknowledge there are problems with the official 911 Truth story.

    It’s an obvious computer generated-image of a 757 hitting the North Tower because you can’t see a break in the building wall between the port engine and fuselage. Think about how the jet engines, wings, fuselage and the tail section of an aluminum airplane just disappear through steel and reinforced concrete……and then appear to come through the other side.

But Minister Jones and his elders Physicist Steven Jones, author David Ray Griffin, architect Richard Gage in charge of 911 Truth, all with New World order connections [6], will not allow anyone to question a controlled demolition theory.

Why would the 911 Truth Movement promote a theory they know is untrue?

Professor James Fetzer, another well known 9/11 activist, said

    “It’s Tactical. “Even if they (the advocates of No Plane Theory) are right, it hurts the movement. Many feel that there is so much evidence of government complicity beyond the issue of big passenger jets that diverting attention to the one thing most people believe that they “saw” is not to our tactical and strategic advantage.”

“Our Tactical and Strategic Advantage”

Should we trust the “creepy side of the 911 Truth Movement” to tell us whose tactical and strategic advantage is served by discrediting the “no plane, no thermite” theories? [12]

What if the 9/11 Truth is nothing more than a pseudo-movement promoting a government “alternative official” story?

Who are the likely agents of disinformation?

Woods and Reynolds want to hijack the movement so the naïve public will be confused about the planes and will believe the government’s lie about nonexistent “terrorists.” Huh?

OR The Church of 9/11 Truth and the Joneses keep anyone from attempting to find out why Dr. Judy Wood calls the twin towers collapse, “The New Hiroshima” [11], and why at the precise moment of the alleged first plane “impact” did the Earth’s magnetic field dip.

My money is on Disinformation agent Alex Jones.

Google “Disinformation Agent” and the first result exposes Jones as a member of Project Mockingbird, Jesuit Temporal Coadjutor and alternative Media Gatekeeper for the Vatican: Alex Jones Jesuit Temporal Coadjutor CIA Disinformation Agent, http://www.spirituallysmart.com/Jones-CIA.htm

Disinformation agents of the New Worldly Order (David Icke, Alex Jones, Zeitgeist) is worth 9 minutes of your time.

No Thermite

Chris Bollyn’s recent discovery of Super-Termite (nanothermite) at “Israel’s Super-Thermite Lab” is nonsense and should be dismissed immediately:

    “The main reason for 9-11 was to change the military equation in the Middle East and bring the United States and NATO into the region on a permanent basis to wage war against the foes of Israel. But how could they possibly think they would get away with such an audacious and heinous crime of false-flag terrorism?”

He then goes on to make the ludicrous statement:

    “What they didn’t expect is that a few Americans would dig into the evidence and uncover every stone to find the real culprits. They certainly didn’t expect that a careful and independent scientific analysis of the dust would reveal that a nano-composite form of super-thermite was used to pulverize the World Trade Center.”

“What they didn’t expect is that a few Americans would dig…” I can hardly stop laughing!

But when I did stop (laughing) and contacted Andrew Johnson at Check The Evidence, he pointed out:

Q) What is thermite anyway? Answer: Aluminum powder and Iron Oxide (rust).

    Fact: The exterior of WTC towers contains aluminum and there were some rusty beams inside the buildings. Therefore we can dismiss any smoking gun theory of super-thermite because you would expect to find Aluminum powder and Iron Oxide in the remains of the World Trade Centre.

Q) What does thermite do to metal? Answer: It melts through it.

Q) What happened to the towers? Answer: They turned largely to dust.

Thermite cannot have been responsible for turning towers to dust. Let’s see this nanothermite in action please!

It’s an explosive but the towers didn’t explode -they turned into a fountain of dust. [13]

The 2001 Invasion of Iraq… That Was Called Off… When the Twin Towers Collapsed

    Paul O’Neill’s revelations that the Bush administration planned to invade Iraq long before September 11, 2001 have been widely publicized. The decision to invade Afghanistan and Iraq was made in July 2001 and the plans were on Bush’s desk by Sept 9. [14]

During the 2008 Presidential election a comment about “John McCain’s Dirt on the Cross Lies” appeared on greenusa.blogspot:

    “I served in the Navy as a Nuclear Plant Operator for over 14 years. I served onboard the USS Texas (CGN-39) in Operation Desert Storm. I served onboard the USS Arkansas (CGN-41) in support of Operation Desert Fox. I was a crewmember of the USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70) when airplanes struck the Twin Towers on 9/11, and our ship was the first ship that was flying attack missions into Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.” [15]

Some time later I read the following:

On September 10th the USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70) chopped (turned around) in the straits of Hormoz, went to Battle Condition II, and prepared to invade Iraq. The order to stand down came 5 hours after the 2nd tower collapsed. [16]

The USS Carl Vinson was in the Persian Gulf with orders to invade Iraq, logic would dictate the invasion would go forward when the buildings collapsed and not be called off.

Hence, if you want the answer to the Most Important Issue in the History of the Universe you better be reading and listening to someone telling you:

  • Why the invasion was called off after the second tower collapsed and
  • What the dip of the Earth’s magnetic field at the precise moment of the alleged first plane “impact” has to do with “what really happened.”

FBI wants records kept of Web sites visited

FBI wants records kept of Web sites visited
Published on 02-05-2010

Source: CNet

The FBI is pressing Internet service providers to record which Web sites customers visit and retain those logs for two years, a requirement that law enforcement believes could help it in investigations of child pornography and other serious crimes.

FBI Director Robert Mueller supports storing Internet users’ “origin and destination information,” a bureau attorney said at a federal task force meeting on Thursday.

As far back as a 2006 speech, Mueller had called for data retention on the part of Internet providers, and emphasized the point two years later when explicitly asking Congress to enact a law making it mandatory. But it had not been clear before that the FBI was asking companies to begin to keep logs of what Web sites are visited, which few if any currently do.

The FBI is not alone in renewing its push for data retention. As CNET reported earlier this week, a survey of state computer crime investigators found them to be nearly unanimous in supporting the idea. Matt Dunn, an Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent in the Department of Homeland Security, also expressed support for the idea during the task force meeting.

Greg Motta, the chief of the FBI’s digital evidence section, said that the bureau was trying to preserve its existing ability to conduct criminal investigations. Federal regulations in place since at least 1986 require phone companies that offer toll service to “retain for a period of 18 months” records including “the name, address, and telephone number of the caller, telephone number called, date, time and length of the call.”

At Thursday’s meeting (PDF) of the Online Safety and Technology Working Group, which was created by Congress and organized by the U.S. Department of Commerce, Motta stressed that the bureau was not asking that content data, such as the text of e-mail messages, be retained.

“The question at least for the bureau has been about non-content transactional data to be preserved: transmission records, non-content records…addressing, routing, signaling of the communication,” Motta said. Director Mueller recognizes, he added “there’s going to be a balance of what industry can bear…He recommends origin and destination information for non-content data.”

Motta pointed to a 2006 resolution from the International Association of Chiefs of Police, which called for the “retention of customer subscriber information, and source and destination information for a minimum specified reasonable period of time so that it will be available to the law enforcement community.”

Recording what Web sites are visited, though, is likely to draw both practical and privacy objections.

“We’re not set up to keep URL information anywhere in the network,” said Drew Arena, Verizon’s vice president and associate general counsel for law enforcement compliance.

And, Arena added, “if you were do to deep packet inspection to see all the URLs, you would arguably violate the Wiretap Act.”

Another industry representative with knowledge of how Internet service providers work was unaware of any company keeping logs of what Web sites its customers visit.

If logs of Web sites visited began to be kept, they would be available only to local, state, and federal police with legal authorization such as a subpoena or search warrant.

What remains unclear are the details of what the FBI is proposing. The possibilities include requiring an Internet provider to log the Internet protocol (IP) address of a Web site visited, or the domain name such as cnet.com, a host name such as news.cnet.com, or the actual URL such as http://reviews.cnet.com/Music/2001-6450_7-0.html.

While the first three categories could be logged without doing deep packet inspection, the fourth category would require it. That could run up against opposition in Congress, which lambasted the concept in a series of hearings in 2008, causing the demise of a company, NebuAd, which pioneered it inside the United States.

The technical challenges also may be formidable. John Seiver, an attorney at Davis Wright Tremaine who represents cable providers, said one of his clients had experience with a law enforcement request that required the logging of outbound URLs.

“Eighteen million hits an hour would have to have been logged,” a staggering amount of data to sort through, Seiver said. The purpose of the FBI’s request was to identify visitors to two URLs, “to try to find out…who’s going to them.”

A Justice Department representative said the department does not have an official position on data retention.
