In this presence beyond presence,
In this place that is no place at all,
In this warm embrace I call myself,
Even a ‘no’ is a secret yes,
Even resistance is deeply allowed,
Even doubt is a celebration of life.
Come, all you unloved creatures,
All you homeless waves in life’s vast ocean,
Pain, doubt, shame, guilt,
All you frightened orphans of light,
Crawl out of your hiding places,
Shuffle out of the darkness,
You are invited to a great feast.
Come, uncertainty, sit by my side,
Come, despair, drink from my cup,
Come, fear, do not be afraid of me,
I will not turn away from you,
I will not deny you a place at this table,
Now that I know the truth of myself.
I invited you here, long ago.
I have an ancient promise to keep."
Cymatics (from Greek: κῦμα “wave”) is the study of visible sound and vibration, a subset of modal phenomena. Typically the surface of a plate, diaphragm, or membrane is vibrated, and regions of maximum and minimum displacement are made visible in a thin coating of particles, paste, or liquid. Different patterns emerge in the excitatory medium depending on the geometry of the plate and the driving frequency.
A simple experiment demonstrating the visualisation of cymatics can be done by sprinkling sand on a metal plate and vibrating the plate, for example by drawing a violin bow along the edge, the sand will then form itself into standing wave patterns such as simple concentric circles. The higher the frequency, the more complex the shapes produced, with certain shapes having similarities to traditional mandala designs.
everyday, new evidence that will increase cancer greatly, especially with our developing children whose immune systems aren’t able to fight off the radiated energy as easily.
Major utility corporations across North America are insisting their customers become part of the transnational “smart grid” by allowing a “smart meter” to be placed on their homes. Those who question the safety or efficacy of such devices are condemned for relying on “false information” or otherwise exercising poor judgement in the face of overwhelming “credible” scientific research confirming the alleged safety of the apparatuses. Utilities such as Central Maine Power and Florida Power and Light are now demanding monthly fees from energy consumers who desire to “opt out” of such schemes.
The “science” offered by such utilities purporting the safety of “smart meters” is remarkably thin. When pressed for evidence that digital, RF-emitting meters are in fact safe, utility spokespersons almost uniformly revert to the Federal Communications Commission’s dated assertion that so long as the radiation released by such devices does not heat or burn one’s flesh, it cannot pose any danger to human health. A majority of customers are trusting enough to accept this explanation prima facie, even though it is a severe understatement of what is presently confirmed on the effects of RF.
Historic lawsuits were filed Thursday against the U.S. and the 8 other Nuclear Weapons States (NWS) of the world to meet their treaty obligations to disarm by the courageous tiny island nation Republic of the Marshall Islands.
Since 1970, the Nuclear Non‐Proliferation Treaty (NPT) has obligated nations to negotiate in good faith for complete nuclear disarmament—a world without nuclear weapons.
Forty‐four years later, with no negotiations in sight, the world has become a more dangerous place with stockpiles of over 17,000 nuclear weapons. Four more nations now have nuclear weapons, and the original five continue to invest in and modernize their nuclear forces with expenditures expected to be in excess of 1 Trillion dollars over the next 10 years. But one small nation has stood up to say “enough is enough.”
The Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) has taken action in the International Court of Justice and in U.S. Federal District Court to compel the nine nuclear weapons nations to comply with their obligations, under the NPT and customary international law, and begin negotiations for nuclear zero.
The Marshallese people know firsthand about the destructive consequences of living in a world with nuclear weapons. From 1946 to 1958, the U.S. conducted 67 nuclear weapon tests in the Marshall Islands, the equivalent explosive power of one‐and‐a‐half Hiroshima bombs detonated daily for 12 years.
They seek no compensation through these legal actions. Rather, they act for the seven billion of us who live on this planet, to end the nuclear weapon threat hanging over all humanity.
For the past year, The Nuclear Age Peace Foundation (NAPF) has served as a consultant to the RMI in support of this courageous initiative to fulfill the world’s nuclear disarmament obligation.
Understanding, as do the people of the Marshall Islands, that the only way to keep our loved ones safe is to relentlessly strive for the total elimination of nuclear weapons. This is not a partisan issue, it is a survival issue. As world leaders have made clear:
“The nuclear club should be abolished and anybody who has a nuclear weapon is the enemy of mankind,” said George Shultz, former U.S. Secretary of State.
“The failure of these countries to uphold important commitments and respect the law makes the world a more dangerous place. This is one of the most fundamental moral and legal questions of our time,” said Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Laureate.
The U.S. backed Military’s form of “Justice”. Do you hear anyone on the U.S. condemning this atrocity?
The death of justice in Egypt: An eight-minute trial, no arguments for the defence, and one judge sentences 683 people to death
‘After an eight-minute trial a judge in Egypt has sentenced to death 683 alleged supporters of the former President Mohamed Morsi who was ousted in a military coup last July. Among those condemned to die is the spiritual head of the Muslim Brotherhood, which has been declared a terrorist organisation despite its tradition of non-violence and having won Egypt’s first-ever democratic elections.
The verdict after such a short mass trial is likely to discredit further the Egyptian authorities internationally, but they may not care about this so long as the military-backed regime can secure its power domestically. The sentencing by the judge Said Youssef on Monday in a court in Minya, 150 miles south of Cairo, was given a further bizarre twist when he reduced death sentences he imposed in March on all but 37 of 529 defendants to terms of life imprisonment.’
Dump the whole system. Let’s start over. We all can do a much better job if we kept our full pay and support our local communities ourselves.
What a joke people call Democracy. Bad, bad joke. We’re not even a Democracy, we are a REPUBLIC, for which it stands. CONSENT of each individual who wishes to be governed, not rule by mob. http://www.1215.org/lawnotes/lawnotes/repvsdem.htm
The reason why we have only two parties, and will only have two parties, is to get us to have to choose between the Father figure Republican –pull yourself up by you own bootstraps, tough love, war and the Mommy figure — help all, care for all, everyone needs love.
That’s it. The system is completely and utterly broken. Let’s get rid of it. WE have the power. WE fund it with our tax dollars.
(Our New Normal, Extreme man-made weather weirding)
The scope is staggering. Some 75 million Americans are under threat of severe weather on Tuesday.
People from the Great Lakes to the Gulf Coast, and from the Midwest to the East Coast, are advised to keep their eyes to the sky and their ears to the radio. That’s a third of the country.
Over the past three years since the massive escape of radioactive isotopes from Fukushima that started in March 2011, freakish weather events have hammered the Northern Hemisphere, from the California drought to an Arctic vortex freeze in the central United States, from a radical melt-off of the Arctic ice cover to serial typhoons slamming the Philippines. Wintertime tornadoes in the American Midwest and South, which never happened prior to the 311 meltdowns, are intensifying in power and frequency.
These weather anomalies point to a common catastrophic origin, which can be none other than the massive amount of radioactive particles released from the Fukushima reactor meltdowns in March 2011 and thereafter.. Tons of high-energy nuclear material carried by the jet stream and oceanic currents are unsettling normal weather patterns to leave a trail of destruction across North America and inside the Arctic Circle.
Instead of launching urgently needed research into the impact of radioactive isotopes on global weather systems, the scientific establishment in the US and at the international level is trying to pin the blame on global warming. A gradual temperature rise due to greenhouse gases cannot by any stretch of the imagination match the scale of these post-311 weather events. The avoidance of any mention, much less research, into radiation effects on weather, is leaving North American communities unprepared and defenseless against the lethal onslaught, which has probably already doomed many marine and coastal species while contaminating the food supply for the human population.
Electronic Brick Wall
An alternative possibility suggested by Jeff Rense, based on satellite images, is far more convincing and, in fact, was the only explanation in the early months of the drought. If anything, the NCAR-Utah paper appears to be a hurried response by climate-change theorists caught with their pants down.
Manipulation of weather patterns is not science fiction or a stretch of the imagination, at least not since the 2003 MEIDEX (Mediterranean Israeli dust experiment) project conducted by the doomed crew of the Space Shuttle Columbia and a British flotilla headed by the carrier Royal Ark. In the waters south of Cyprus, Royal Navy planes sprayed the skies with metallic-salt particles, which were then excited by transmissions from radio arrays at the British electronic-warfare center at their Akrotiri military base, near the Cypriot capital Limassol. Overhead, the Columbia fired four shots with its on-board laser gun, causing waterspouts to rise vertically along a straight horizontal line parallel to the British war vessels. The result was a storm front that smashed into Limassol and then created a snowstorm over Israel, Lebanon and Iraq in January. American troops invading Iraq thereby enjoy cool temperatures well into June.
(by 2018, 15% of cars will be driverless according to Motor Industry)
“We still have lots of problems to solve, including teaching the car to drive more streets in Mountain View before we tackle another town, but thousands of situations on city streets that would have stumped us two years ago can now be navigated autonomously,” Urmson writes.
Four states (California, Florida, Michigan and Nevada) allow for driver-less cars, The Atlantic Cities reports. Washington, DC announced new rules at the beginning of April that would make it the first jurisdiction to license self-driving car operators (rather than testers), according to Slate. And the federal government has authorized only a handful of test locations for “connected cars,” where vehicles use technology to communicate with other similarly equipped vehicles that alert drivers to potentially dangerous situations.

(rats fleeing the sinking ship…)
The state’s Health and Human Services Secretary has accepted the resignation of Olga Roche, the embattled commissioner of the Department of Children and Families.
Health and Human Services Secretary John Polanowicz made the announcement at a news conference Tuesday morning.
When a federal court trashed its “net neutrality” compromise policy in January, the Federal Communications Commission assured us that the Internet we knew and depended on was safe. Most activists didn’t believe federal officials and this past week the FCC demonstrated how realistic our cynicism was.
The Commission announced last week that among its proposals on the Internet, due for full discussion on May 15, was one which would give access providers the right to sign special deals with content producers for connections that are faster and cleaner than the connections most websites use. It’s precisely the nightmare that court decision threatened.
In the predictable outcry and immediate debate over the FCC’s announcement, however, two major issues seemed to be lost.
To deliver this faster connection, the Internet giants will have to change the Net’s protocols, establishing a fast lane that completely destroys the technological basis of Internet neutrality. They will, effectively, be allowed to set up an alternate Internet.

Are too many police officers currently suffering from engineered mental instability? The wave of police brutality in America and the world suggests this may be true, but just how big is this problem and is all of this engineered?
First, without question there are still excellent police officers throughout America that go to work every day and carry themselves in a professional manner. Unfortunately these good and well-meaning police officers are having to bear the weight and the burden placed on them by other so-called “bad” police.
But what exactly is underneath all of this? Even police that act violently often mean well but have rationalized their own behavior to justify what they do. Let’s examine this closer.
Police, like our military men and women who are forced into situations they would rather not be in, are now being counted on to carry out over-reactive injustices on American citizens. Every day we are hearing about police shooting, killing, tasering and beating to death Americans (and even their dogs) who had no charges against them, were not even read their Miranda rights and didn’t get a chance to be heard in front of a jury of their peers. The stories of police executions nationwide are almost daily. So what can be said about this phenomenon?
The trial of McMillan, 25, is one of the last criminal cases originating from the Occupy protest movement. It is also one of the most emblematic. The state, after the coordinated nationwide eradication of Occupy encampments, has relentlessly used the courts to harass and neutralize Occupy activists, often handing out long probation terms that come with activists’ forced acceptance of felony charges. A felony charge makes it harder to find employment and bars those with such convictions from serving on juries or working for law enforcement. Most important, the long probation terms effectively prohibit further activism.

“What lies at the nexus of Obama’s targeted drone killings, his self-serving leaks, and his aggressive prosecution of whistleblowers is a president who believes himself above the law, and seems convinced that he alone has a preternatural ability to determine right from wrong.”—Peter Van Buren, a 24-year veteran Foreign Service Officer at the State Department
At the request of US Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, US senators have removed a section from a crucial intelligence bill that would have required the White House to disclose information on those killed by US drone strikes overseas.
The fiscal year 2014 intelligence authorization bill passed through the Senate Intelligence Committee in November with a provision that required the president to offer annual statistics that outline the total number of “combatants” and “noncombatant civilians” killed or injured by US drone strikes in the previous year.
A few years back, the White House had a brilliant idea: Why not create a single, secure online ID that Americans could use to verify their identity across multiple websites, starting with local government services. The New York Times described it at the time as a “driver’s license for the internet.”
Sound convenient? It is. Sound scary? It is.
Next month, a pilot program of the “National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace” will begin in government agencies in two US states, to test out whether the pros of a federally verified cyber ID outweigh the cons.
The goal is to put to bed once and for all our current ineffective and tedious system of using passwords for online authentication, which itself was a cure for the even more ineffective and tedious process of walking into a brick-and-mortar building and presenting a human being with two forms of paper identification.
The most impressive number from Apple’s earnings call this week wasn’t how many iPhones it sold or how much money it made. Those numbers are monstrous quarter after quarter. More striking was CEO Tim Cook’s revelation that about 800 million people now have accounts on Apple’s iTunes service. And most of those accounts are tied to credit cards.
That number is astonishing — by comparison, Amazon.com has some 237 million active customers — and it could point toward a new Apple future. As countless rumors hint at the imminent arrival of new Apple products — rumors Cook did nothing to confirm or dispel — the company’s credit-card trove means one new tool is almost inevitable: a payments service. Apple may soon become a way you pay for all sorts of stuff across the web, inside mobile apps, and maybe even as you walk to the counter at a brick-and-mortar retail store.
Carlos Arredondo has been widely praised by an array of corporate news media as among the most valorous figures of the Boston Marathon bombing. He was “heralded as a true American hero,” the International Business Times gushes, having allegedly “risked his life to help the victims of the two explosions that rocked the Boston Marathon.”

Does that look like real blood to you, blood is deep, dark red? How does the guy live and spend 20 minutes going back and forth for the cameras with his artery exposed???? and then there is the fake leg falling off….unflipping real people do not see through the b.s. story.
According to shocking new numbers that were just released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 20 percent of American families do not have a single person that is working. So when someone tries to tell you that the unemployment rate in the United States is about 7 percent, you should just laugh. One-fifth of the families in the entire country do not have a single member with a job. That is absolutely astonishing. How can a family survive if nobody is making any money?
Well, the answer to that question is actually quite easy. There is a reason why government dependence has reached epidemic levels in the United States. Without enough jobs, tens of millions of additional Americans have been forced to reach out to the government for help. At this point, if you can believe it, the number of Americans getting money or benefits from the federal government each month exceeds the number of full-time workers in the private sector by more than 60 million.
The overwhelming evidence that the events of 9/11 could have in no way been perpetrated without inside complicity is irrefutable. Whether the impossibility of those two massively over-designed structures being pulverized and another dropped into its own footprint, or the abject lack of response by the most defended airspace in the world, the events of that day had to have been at least aided and guided, if not co-perpetrated, by inside, complicit forces.
The least bit of open minded investigation will lead anyone to that conclusion.
The only alternative is to blindly trust the staged media narrative, carefully reinforced by a belated congressional report that clearly ignored important evidence – another government report based on scant clues, planned conjecture, and a lot of falsified, deleted and diluted information.
What’s remarkable, and may explain much of the hysteria that accompanied those events, is that all of this was carefully performed after many years of building the demonization of an extremist Muslim uprising, an external enemy of a vague yet suddenly appearing world threatening nature. The perfect target for suspicion in any ensuing violent event.
And the public bought and swallowed the whole enchilada
After all, cui bono? Who benefits?
The narrative was laid down for years preparing Americans and much of the world to believe there were Muslim terrorists afoot, and that these terrorists were eventually attached to a then newly arisen figure named Osama bin Laden and another new phenomenon called “al Qaida”. When the events of 9/11 took place the mainstream media was blaming this same Osama bin Laden and al Qaida within minutes of the towers coming down, following the narrative laid down for the years preceding.
An easy sell at that point.
Odd that this same Osama just happened to be from the same mega wealthy Saudi family very close to the Bushes and whose family business was subsequently contracted to build the many US bases in the Mideast region. A renegade son? Or a staged trade-off of some sort. Something to ponder amongst the plethora of other abnormalities. But does the mainstain news even mention this or anything else contrary to the party line?
On to Afghanistan and the Russia Connection
It was claimed bin Laden was masterminding 9/11 while hiding out in a cave deep in the mountains of Afghanistan, a country then run by the Taliban, a by product of the Mujahadeen, an inserted insurgency trained by the US and its CIA to bait and counter the Russians many years prior. Al Qaida literally means “the base”, and is said to be the name of the database of trained insurgents placed there by the CIA. There is much to substantiate this.
Some Historical Perspective
US aid to the armed Mujahadeen Islamic insurgency started six months before the Soviets invaded Afghanistan with the intention of making it more likely for the USSR to attack Afghanistan to support its puppet government. Brzezinski admitted as much in a 1998 interview:
According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahadeen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan, 24 Dec 1979. But the reality, secretly guarded until now, is completely otherwise. That secret operation was an excellent idea. It had the effect of drawing the Soviets into the Afghan trap…. The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter “We now have the opportunity of giving to the Soviet Union its Vietnam War.”
Brzezinski got his wish, and once the Soviets invaded he sprung into action.

Ever since the continents started interacting politically, some five hundred years ago, Eurasia has been the center of world power.”- (p. xiii)
“It is imperative that no Eurasian challenger emerges capable of dominating Eurasia and thus of also challenging America. The formulation of a comprehensive and integrated Eurasian geostrategy is therefore the purpose of this book.” (p. xiv)
“How America ‘manages’ Eurasia is critical. A power that dominates Eurasia would control two of the world’s three most advanced and economically productive regions. A mere glance at the map also suggests that control over Eurasia would almost automatically entail Africa’s subordination, rendering the Western Hemisphere and Oceania geopolitically peripheral to the world’s central continent. About 75 per cent of the world’s people live in Eurasia, and most of the world’s physical wealth is there as well, both in its enterprises and underneath its soil. Eurasia accounts for about three-fourths of the world’s known energy resources.” (p.31)
“Never before has a populist democracy attained international supremacy. But the pursuit of power is not a goal that commands popular passion, except in conditions of a sudden threat or challenge to the public’s sense of domestic well-being. The economic self-denial (that is, defense spending) and the human sacrifice (casualties, even among professional soldiers) required in the effort are uncongenial to democratic instincts. Democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization.” (p.35)
