“Without awareness of what is programming and affecting consciousness, we have no control over the impulses generated by consciousness.”
Consciousness might be described as the quality or state of awareness that human beings have of themselves, their environment and their surroundings, including sensation, thought, feeling and intuition. Consciousness functions on many levels, including the dream states, the sub-conscious mind, the ever-present observer mind, waking consciousness, and many meditative and spiritual states of awareness. It is dynamic, always changing throughout the day, and continuously evolving throughout life.
Everything is both a mirror and a reflection of something else, and the technological world that we’ve constructed is a glimpse at our inner universe. The way we use technology is analogous to how the mind interacts with nature, collects and stores sensory data, formulates ideas and adapts to surroundings. Humans first dominated nature by studying and imitating the workings of the natural world, and this process has evolved into a symbiotic relationship where the evolution of the species is heavily warped by our own invention. Now we are totally dependent on technology for survival and for any further evolution.
As such, it is enlightening to consider just how similar the human mind is to the computer, the core technology contributing to the evolution of human consciousness most by enabling communication to occur at synaptic speeds. Consider the following:
…Human consciousness is most often manipulated by directly appealing to our most base senses, fear and sex. Corporations use sexual imagery and innuendo to sell products by triggering the consciousness of desire and ego-fulfillment. Fear consciousness is the primary tool of the political and media elite for selling public policy, exerting control and preventing meaningful redress of grievances. The continuous shock of witnessing acts of violence in the media, the ever-impending threat of scarcity, and the insatiable need to aggrandize the ego are all social engineering tools used to limit mass consciousness to within the reptilian spectrum.
The mind can also be hacked by trickery, illusion, confusion, and delusion. We can directly program ourselves with hypnosis and other personal development tricks like neuro-linguistic programming, which are also techniques that can be used against us. Transcendent and transformative experiences, like those found in deep meditation or during an intense spiritual practice like yoga, can have profound and lasting positive effects on consciousness. Profound and enlightening states of altered consciousness can be induced with the ingestion of psycho-active plants, like psilocybin mushrooms, ayahuasca or iboga.
Without awareness of what is programming and affecting consciousness, we have no control over the impulses generated by consciousness.
At the molecular level, atoms are held together by electrical bonds, not physical bonds, and incredibly, the human body produces its own measurable light in the form of biophoton emissions. The electrical activity of the brain will harmonize when engaging in activities like meditation or yoga, and watching television or movies can cause many people in the same room to involuntarily synchronize brainwaves. Additionally, technological and environmental pollutants such as electro-magnetic radiation, water fluoridation and toxic foods can heavily impact consciousness by interfering with the body’s natural processes, even calcifying the pineal gland, the tiny gland attributed to linking the mind and body to the spirit.
Furthermore, the scientific understanding of the human mind has ballooned in recent years, and we can now interact with the brain as an electro-mechanical instrument, albeit one of extreme complexity. Remarkably, it is possible to capture the brain’s electrical output and interpret brainwaves for use as control signals for consumer devices, like mind-controlled word processors and toy helicopters. Virtual reality technologies trick the senses into believing that what they are receiving is an accurate interpretation of the world. As security and defense tools, the government, and agencies like DARPA are putting tremendous resources into the development of mind-reading, brain-syncing and scanning technologies which interpret and influence consciousness by intercepting and transmitting electrical information relevant to the human brain.
Supporting all life is an energetic system which makes consciousness happen. This is the source of life and technology.
Koko’s Tribute to Robin Williams
Robin Williams visited with Koko at the Gorilla Foundation in northern California. Over the course of their meeting, which was captured on film, the pair seemed to share a remarkable kinship — and a similar sense of humor. During the visit, Koko, who had been depressed since the death of the cat that lived with her, smiled for the first time in six months that day. When Koko learned of Robin’s passing (on Aug. 11, 2014) she became very sad. We hope this video will lift her spirits and remind everyone of the profound gift of joy that Robin Williams brought to our world.
The Best of Robin Williams on Golf
One day, as he was walking along the shore, he looked down the beach and saw a human figure moving like a dancer. He smiled to himself at the thought of someone who would dance to the day, and so, he walked faster to catch up.
As he got closer, he noticed that the figure was that of a young man, and that what he was doing was not dancing at all. The young man was reaching down to the shore, picking up small objects, and throwing them into the ocean.
He came closer still and called out “Good morning! May I ask what it is that you are doing?”
The young man paused, looked up, and replied “Throwing starfish into the ocean.”
“I must ask, then, why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?” asked the somewhat startled wise man.
To this, the young man replied, “The sun is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them in, they’ll die.”
Upon hearing this, the wise man commented, “But, young man, do you not realize that there are miles and miles of beach and there are starfish all along every mile? You can’t possibly make a difference!”
At this, the young man bent down, picked up yet another starfish, and threw it into the ocean. As it met the water, he said,
“It made a difference for that one.”
Nine years ago, Nicolle Crist and Rich Gallagher decided they’d had enough of city life.”Unless you’re super-successful, you can’t live in a safe neighborhood and pay rent and go out and do things,” Nicolle said. Their search for an affordable home wasn’t encouraging either, as area prices would have forced them to “mortgage [their] lives away.”
“Even with two incomes and no children, we were still living paycheck to paycheck,” Nicolle told The Huffington Post. “And even if we were getting good reviews on our job, you could still be laid off at any time.”
As Rich learned the ins and outs of farming, the couple drastically cut their spending and began working in earnest toward their goal of owning their home. Changing their consumption habits proved much easier in a small-town setting, away from the pressures and opportunities for frivolous spending that are only found in big cities. They passed on purchasing the latest phones and tablets, made do with a 15-year-old car, did less clothes shopping and started cooking at home more often.
“In Philly, you could basically spend money 24 hours a day,” Nicolle said. “Now, it’s really not as much of a temptation.”
Rich picked up farming quickly, and the two are now the proud owners of Hidden Hill Farm, where they grow okra, squash, cucumbers, cabbage, garlic, tomatoes and more. They have a “good customer base,” Nicolle said, and run a successful CSA, where customers purchase vegetables in advance through a subscription-style service. Nicolle and Rich married in 2010, and they’ve succeeded in becoming the full owners of their home.
‘In a speech yesterday, in Stockholn Sweden, Vice Chairman of the Federal Reserve and former governor of the Bank of Israel and former chief economist at the World Bank, Stanley Fisher noted:
“As part of this approach, the United States is preparing a proposal to require systemically important banks to issue bail-inable long-term debt that will enable insolvent banks to recapitalize themselves in resolution without calling on government funding–this cushion is known as a “gone concern” buffer.”
Mr. Fisher gave no details as to whom in the United States was preparing the bail-in proposal and what “bailinable long term debt” is.’
Trading, Swapping, Giving…the New Economy Where No Taxes Are Needed.
When money is hoarded and removed from circulation it prevents people from transacting with one another, not because they don’t need one another’s services, but because they lack the medium of exchange needed to facilitate the transaction, and this is where alternative currencies, including timebanking, come in.
After less than a year in operation, the “EConomy of HOurs” (ECHO for short) in the UK has proven that their innovative approach to timebanking can catalyze much wider participation than normal by implementing a few, important tweaks to the conventional timebanking model.

Ed ~Can you imagine how you would feel if you were a black man or woman or child living in a city like ….St. Louis, Oakland,Santa Rosa, etc.. where a neighbor was openly assassinated by local police and no one was held accountable and the only reaction from the “justice” or “just-us” system was to send in more military/police??? this is not going away anytime soon and will likely escalate as no one is held accountable (see banksters) and people feel less safe with police and see them more as enforcers for the empire.
St. Louis County police officer has reportedly shot and critically wounded a man who police say pointed a handgun at the officer early Wednesday in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of an unarmed young black man by an officer has triggered demonstrations, street clashes and looting.
A woman was also shot in the head and wounded during the area’a sporadic street demonstrations overnight, Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson told the Los Angeles Times. He also confirmed the separate officer-involved shooting, but said that incident was being handled by St. Louis County police.
Civil forfeiture is a little-known legal device that allows law enforcement officials to take your property, sell it and pocket the proceeds—even if you have done nothing wrong.
“They were intending to commit a criminal act,” McMahon said.
So police arrested them and took their money. Trafficking charges were never filed, but authorities kept most of the cash under civil asset forfeiture laws that allow government confiscation, even without a criminal conviction.
Over the past five years, the scene has repeated itself countless times as county agencies scooped up nearly $8 million, most of it in cash, from people suspected of a range of unlawful activity, including marijuana trafficking on Highway 101.
Tales of mysterious men in black or camouflage dropping from helicopters into legal marijuana gardens, cutting the plants, then disappearing with nary a word to the growers, have been spreading fear among Mendocino County pot cultivators.
Many believe the intruders are private, paramilitary security officers conducting vigilante anti-pot operations, but the real story likely is less intriguing, according to the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office

Look out Rosie the Robot, Starwood Hotels’ Aloft brand has a taskmaster of its own.
His (or her?) name; A.L.O. pronounced “el-oh”, the hotels’ first Botlr (short of robotic butler.) Standing just under 3 feet tall, A.L.O. comes dressed in a vinyl-collared butler uniform and will soon be on call all day and night to fulfill requests from guests.
Forget your toothpaste? Need more towels? How about a late-night chocolate bar? All guests of the hotel have to do is call the front desk, where staff will load up the Botlr with requested items, punch in the guest’s room number and send it off to make the delivery, navigating hallways and even call for the elevator using Wi-Fi.

Paul Craig Roberts, Dave Kranzler, and John Titus
On January 6, 2004, Paul Craig Roberts and US Senator Charles Schumer published a jointly written article on the op-ed page of the New York Times titled “Second Thoughts on Free Trade.” The article pointed out that the US had entered a new economic era in which American workers face “direct global competition at almost every job level–from the machinist to the software engineer to the Wall Street analyst. Any worker whose job does not require daily face-to-face interaction is now in jeopardy of being replaced by a lower-paid equally skilled worker thousands of miles away.
American jobs are being lost not to competition from foreign companies, but to multinational corporations that are cutting costs by shifting operations to low-wage countries.” Roberts and Schumer challenged the correctness of economists’ views that jobs off-shoring was merely the operation of mutually beneficial free trade, about which no concerns were warranted.
The challenge to what was regarded as “free trade globalism” from the unusual combination of a Reagan Assistant Treasury Secretary and a liberal Democrat New York Senator caused a sensation.
Unlike most cities that have either groundwater, a connection to state water canals, or vast reservoirs, Santa Cruz is among those worst hit by the drought because what makes it special – the town is surrounded by ocean and mountains – also means it relies almost exclusively on storm runoff into a river, creeks and an aging reservoir.
“We’re completely dependent on Mother Nature, so we’re vulnerable” Santa Cruz Water Director Rosemary Menard said. “There really is no carrot in the situation that we’re facing. We had to ration.”
The city cracked down in May, deploying “drought busters,” whom locals call “water cops,” to warn – and then penalize – anyone openly watering between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., washing down pavement or refilling a spa. A logo, “Surf City Saves,” was launched, and a hotline to tattle on water wasters and mandatory household limits, allowing just 249 gallons per day for a family of four, were set. A typical dishwasher load is 20 gallons, a load of laundry can be 25 gallons, a toilet flush can be 3 gallons. It adds up. Nationally, a family of four averages 400 gallons a day.
The search for predictive behavior technology to target shopping habits has been a contentious one in the United States. Several years ago a notice appeared at Promenade Temecula in California, and Short Pump Town Center in Richmond, Va. which advised shoppers that their cell phone signal would be used to track them as they move from store to store. Despite privacy assurances, that test-run produced enough outrage to force the UK maker of the technology, Path Intelligence, as well as mall management to halt the surveillance. Senator Charles Schumer was embroiled in the debate and subsequently put forth a Code of Conduct “to promote consumer privacy and responsible data use for retail location analytics.” It’s been described as a step in the right direction, while other lawmakers still see major privacy gaps.
Nevertheless, a new shopper tracking system is being rolled out in the UK which will be embedded into store mannequins. Meanwhile, some of the earlier pushback in the U.S. seems to be fading on news that the government appears to be encouraging strong regulations, potentially opening the door for such systems to be used in the United States.
Drug research going far beyond the usual brief descriptions of MKULTRA.
The intention is there, in the record.
What followed was a list of hoped-for drugs and their uses.
The CIA wanted to find chemicals that “would produce the signs and symptoms of recognized diseases in a reversible way.” This suggests many possibilities—among them the use of drugs to fabricate diseases and thereby give the false impression of germ-caused epidemics.
The CIA wanted to find drugs that would “produce amnesia.” Ideal for discrediting whistleblowers, dissidents, certain political candidates, and other investigators. (Scopolamine, for example.)
The CIA wanted to discover drugs which would produce “paralysis of the legs, acute anemia, etc.” A way to make people decline in health as if from diseases.
The CIA wanted to develop drugs that would “alter personality structure” and thus induce a person’s dependence on another person. How about dependence in general? For instance, dependence on institutions, governments?
The CIA wanted to discover chemicals that would “lower the ambition and general working efficiency of men.” Sounds like a general description of the devolution of society.
As you read the list yourself, you’ll see more implications/possibilities.
Here, from 1955, are the types of drugs the MKULTRA men at the CIA were looking for:
Substances which will promote illogical thinking and impulsiveness to the point where the recipient would be discredited in public.
Substances which increase the efficiency of mentation and perception.
Materials which will prevent or counteract the intoxicating effect of alcohol.
Materials which will promote the intoxicating effect of alcohol.
Materials which will produce the signs and symptoms of recognized diseases in a reversible way so that they may be used for malingering, etc.
Materials which will render the induction of hypnosis easier or otherwise enhance its usefulness.
Substances which will enhance the ability of individuals to withstand privation, torture and coercion during interrogation and so-called “brain-washing”.
Materials and physical methods which will produce amnesia for events preceding and during their use.
Physical methods of producing shock and confusion over extended periods of time and capable of surreptitious use.
Substances which produce physical disablement such as paralysis of the legs, acute anemia, etc.
Substances which will produce “pure” euphoria with no subsequent let-down.
Substances which alter personality structure in such a way that the tendency of the recipient to become dependent upon another person is enhanced.
A material which will cause mental confusion of such a type that the individual under its influence will find it difficult to maintain a fabrication under questioning.
Substances which will lower the ambition and general working efficiency of men when administered in undetectable amounts.
Substances which promote weakness or distortion of the eyesight or hearing faculties, preferably without permanent effects.
A knockout pill which can surreptitiously be administered in drinks, food, cigarettes, as an aerosol, etc., which will be safe to use, provide a maximum of amnesia, and be suitable for use by agent types on an ad hoc basis.
A material which can be surreptitiously administered by the above routes and which in very small amounts will make it impossible for a man to perform any physical activity whatsoever.
That’s the list.
At the end of this 1955 CIA document, the author [unnamed] makes these remarks: “In practice, it has been possible to use outside cleared contractors for the preliminary phases of this [research] work. However, that part which involves human testing at effective dose levels presents security problems which cannot be handled by the ordinary contractor
Prolific occult historian Jordan Maxwell teaches us the real meaning behind Hollywood’s origins in his book The Matrix of Power. He writes:
Merlin and the old magicians of Celtic England always used their magic wands, and these magic wands were always made out of holly-wood. And that’s why today we still have Holly-wood, working its “magic” on us — showing us in movies how to view things, what we should think, or just offering us a big box office diversion.
August 7th, 2014
Via: Washington Post:
Russia on Thursday banned most imports of Western food products, a sweeping escalation in an economic war that will deal a multibillion-dollar hit to affected nations but will also unreel wide-ranging consequences at home.
The measures were a signal that Russia is not backing down from a confrontation that has sent Western-Russian tensions to heights not seen since the Cold War — and that it is willing to risk barer shelves and higher food prices at home in the name of striking a blow against countries that have tried to punish it for its alleged support of a pro-Russian insurgency in eastern Ukraine.
Russia suspended imports of meat, fish, fruit, vegetables and milk products from the United States, the 28-nation European Union, Norway, Canada and Australia for a period of a year. The move came in retaliation for sanctions those countries issued over the conflict in Ukraine, where Russia is accused of sending weaponry and other support to rebels. Russia has denied the charges.
