Bill Hicks – It’s Just A Ride
The World is like a ride in an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it you think it’s real, because that’s how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round, and it has thrills and chills and is very brightly colored, and it’s very loud. And it’s fun, for a while.
(additionally, we breathe and average breaths of 18 times per minute. Times 60 minutes = 1080 X 24 hours = 25, 940 which equals Plato’s great year of the procession of our equinox on the zodiac of 25, 920 years http://earthmatrix.com/platonic/nineveh.htm)
The Fibonacci sequence describes the golden mean relationship within Nature’s growth patterns, such as the famous spiral of the nautilus shell. The sequence generally starts with the numbers 0, 1, 1, 2, and each subsequent number is the sum of the previous two. However, it is also possible to start with the numbers 3, 6, and 9. The first eleven numbers of this series are: 3, 6, 9, 15, 24, 39, 63, 102, 165, 267, 432. The number 432 caught my attention. Just prior to the family reunion I visited Graham Hancock’s website and found an article by Edward Nightingale. The article describes a certain geometry based on the number 432. The number 4320 happens to be the average number of heartbeats per hour (72 times 60). Nightingale provided the following representation of 4320:
The number 4320 reduces to the number 9: 4 + 3 + 2 + 0 = 9. The number 9 is the symbol of completion or Unity. It can be seen as the ultimate goal of the Attractor. In other words, it is the Attractor and its archetypal dynamisms that lead humanity on a path of evolutionary consciousness. Numbers themselves have a qualitative influence over our life’s remedial experiences, with 9 as the achievement of re-unification with our higher Self. The journey to wholeness was symbolized by G. I. Gurdjieff in the Enneagram. The Enneagram symbol relies on the trinity of 3 – 6 – 9 and incorporates the heart geometry of 4320:
The realization of our true essence happens when our personality becomes passive and essence becomes active. It requires a loosening of our grip on what we believe about ourselves: our ego-identity that is tangled up with other’s expectations. Untangling our essence from our personality requires conscious awareness of our conditioned behavior. This is not a simple task as most of our conditioned responses are both habituated and subconscious. Heart-consciousness is connected to our essence and can bring our subconscious patterns to light, thereby helping us transform them.
Gurdjieff considered the circle to represent the process of unfoldment with the divisions around its circumference symbolizing the steps of the process of Self discovery. Who we are within the circle is all our patterns of behavior. The church father Origen said we have more personalities within us than herds of cattle, herds of sheep and goats. Gurdjieff divided the human being as consisting of two parts: essence and personality. Essence represents our true nature: who we are at the level of unified Self. Our personality is what Gurdjieff describes as not really belonging to us because it has been acquired from the outside through parental and societal conditioning. The Attractor pulls us through life’s challenges as the archetypes activate those personality behaviors and patterns so we can become aware of them and work to overcome their negative influences. In this way, the personality content within the circle motivates us towards an expanded realization of our Self that lies outside the circle. Buckminster Fuller reminded us that a circle has two sides; the inside and the outside. The inside of a circle is 360 degrees. The outside of a circle is also 360 degrees. Consequently, the Unified Self must be represented as 720 degrees (360 + 360). And, the number 720 is harmonically related to the average number of heart beats per minute: 72.
Imagine a cave in which people have lived their entire lives, facing away from the mouth of the cave with chains forcing them to look only at a blank wall. In actuality, they’re looking at the shadows that move across the wall, cast by objects and people that pass before a fire that burns outside the cave. It is these shadows that the chained people call ‘reality.’
~Allegory of the Cave
This is the allegory used by Plato narrating the way in which Socrates explained how we are being controlled by illusions cast over us by the powers that be. However, the allegory also explains that there are people whose minds have been freed from the cave, and see the shadows as an illusionary truth: weak and distorted images of the reality that exists outside the cave. Soon enough, Socrates was tried and executed for ‘corrupting the minds of the youth,’ or in doublespeak, for starting a mass awakening among those that ‘they’ are threatened by, otherwise known as any and everyone.
What the unaware call ‘reality’ is indeed an illusionary concept that is maintained by the power(s) behind the throne, weaved into this world that we probably never even originated from either partially or completely, and in a realm of existence in which we most certainly do not fully belong?at least not at the depth into physicality as we are. Yet, the shadows still move across the wall, even for the people who have learned to look past them and seek the truth outside the cave. We are able to see the shadows for what they are and choose to unchain ourselves, but the shadows still surround us everywhere we look, and it would cost everything else but ourselves to get out and away from the cave and truly live in freedom. Many of us, however, choose to stay in the cave of illusions to guide those still chained to look away from the wall and see them for what they are, before turning around to face those who cast the shadows. The trouble is that it’s hard to persuade people who were born in a world of shadows to look beyond them, when shadows are all they know. Many refuse to be unchained, and prefer to indulge deeper into the world of shadows. The shadows cast by the string pullers cannot do anything to us against our own will; they can only attempt to intimidate us until we allow the casters to get closer to us. The shadows cast by their creations and control systems try to lure us further towards the wall and into the cave, but we must remember that they cannot take away our willpower to overcome their control.
Profit Driven Western Medicine Only Treats You to Get Sick (Dis-ease)……… Never to Prevent Illness First, otherwise they would be out of business if all were healthy from practicing preventative medicine and well being.
The power structure that controls the disease industry understands these concepts very well. That is why from the time we are born, until the time we die, they want to control this emotional energy matrix. From the very first vaccine to the very last dosage of medication on our deathbeds (and everything in between), we have been conditioned to accept that external factors and disease treatments are what can help control our pain and suffering.
This is true to a certain extent as we are led down a path to believe that we must suffer and must experience pain to live, so we must then engage in pain coping mechanisms in the form of medications to keep living. It’s just one of the reasons that a greater life expectancy has come at an enormous cost in the quality of life of our elders, for they are suffering with more pain and greater disability than ever before in last 15 years of life.
So even though life expectancy at birth rose an average of four years in the last two decades of the 20th century, whether the human species has benefited from this increase is debatable because we are not embracing concepts related to health as we age…only those related to disease. Contrary to what many have been led to believe, frailty as we age is only an option and one by choice. There are 90-year olds who can still run, lift weight and are as vibrant as many 60-year olds, so why is there such a discrepancy? To understand why disease manifests we must understand its function. Take cancer as an example.
Cancer Is Not What We Think It Is
To prevent cancer, we need to understand the process. Most people believe cancer is a disease, but this is not true at all. There is a plethora of documentation that proves that cancer is in fact a symptom of many biological processes in the body. Cancer is not an infectious disease like polio, whooping cough, mumps, or measles. It is not contagious. We can’t catch cancer from someone else. It is not a bacteria or a virus whose purpose is to eat the nutrients we have in the body.
So according to this definition, cancer is a single condition. In fact, it is a naturally occurring condition of the body. It’s perfectly normal and natural to have an immune system, and it’s perfectly normal and natural to have a population of mutant cells. The human body has 75 trillion cells. We have over 200 different types of cells in the human body. Some 230,000 cells are created every second, almost 20 billion per day. The average person has about 1100 mutant cells daily. The difference between these mutant cells running an imbalanced path of destruction leading to disease, or one leading to balance is entirely dependent on our immune system.
The immune system fails to heal us when this model is unbalanced. Cancer can be our greatest opportunity to help restore balance to all aspects of our life, but it can also be the harbinger of severe trauma and suffering. Either way we are always in control of our body.
One of the most vaccine-compliant counties in northern California is experiencing one of the worst whooping cough outbreaks in the entire state, according to a new reports. Yolo County, which sits directly east of Napa County near Sacramento, is reportedly seeing a larger spike in cases of pertussis than most other counties in California, despite the fact that roughly 95 percent of the children living there are up to date with their vaccines.
(by 2018, estimates are for 25% of cars to be driveless! they will get car pool lane privelages and people will not have to carry car insurance or register vehicles to incentivize the switch. you willl also be in complete control of the cars handlers which means you can be ‘suicide’ much easier, like Michael Hastings was (Source)
A future based on driverless cars could mean big changes to the way cities are shaped. Given that there are plenty of things wrong with our relationship to cars today, it’s tempting to fantasize about how much better things would be be once self-driving vehicles become the norm.
But things could get worse, too.
“U.S. history shows that anytime you make driving easier, there seems to be this inexhaustible desire to live further from things,” said Ken Laberteaux, the senior principal scientist for Toyota’s North American team, in an interview with Bloomberg at the Automated Vehicles Symposium in San Francisco last week. “The pattern we’ve seen for a century is people turn more speed into more travel, rather than maybe saying, ‘I’m going to use my reduced travel time by spending more time with my family.’”
Laberteaux thinks that self-driving cars could re-create a dynamic that turned American suburban in the years after World War II. Back then, big, smooth highways made longer commutes bearable, opening the countryside up to McMansions and creating a host of sprawl-related traffic and environment problems that are still around . Cities have been enjoying a rebirth in recent years, but the exurbs might look pretty attractive if sitting in a car resembled hanging out on a moving couch.
Between Suspicious Deaths and Cy Vance Criminal Prosecutions, Technology Jobs On Wall Street Are Now Among the Most Dangerous in America
The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution protects the right of individuals to keep and bear arms.The Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that the right rests in individuals, not merely collective militias, while also ruling that the right is not unlimited and does not prohibit all regulation of either firearms or similar devices. State and local governments are limited to the same extent as the federal government from infringing this right per the incorporation of the Bill of Rights. The Second Amendment was adopted on December 15, 1791, as part of the first ten amendments comprising the Bill of Rights.
What Corporate Media and Corporate Latino Politicians Won’t Tell You About Central American Child Refugees
‘Why can’t Latino politicians and corporate media call the current wave of Central American children refugees, when that’s what they plainly are? What’s the role of the US drug war, US trained cops and military, and US funded death squads in the violence and poverty that sent them here, and why won’t Latino politicians mention that either?
And why are none fleeing Nicaragua, which is just as poor as Honduras, Guatemala or El Salvador?’
JThe U.S. government is rapidly expanding the number of names it accepts for inclusion on its terrorist watch list, with more than 1.5 million added in the last five years, according to numbers divulged by the government in a civil lawsuit.
About 99 percent of the names submitted are accepted, leading to criticism that the government is “wildly loose” in its use of the list.
Nearly all of the highest-profile domestic terrorism plots in the United States since 9/11 featured the “direct involvement” of government agents or informants, a new report says. Some of the controversial “sting” operations “were proposed or led by informants”, bordering on entrapment by law enforcement. Yet the courtroom obstacles to proving entrapment are significant, one of the reasons the stings persist.
On Thursday 8 June 1967, Israeli air and naval forces attacked America’s most advanced spy ship, the U.S.S. Liberty, killing 34 of its crew and wounding 174.
Forty five years on, thanks to the complicity of the mainstream media, the cover up ordered by President Johnson is still in place.
Two years ago, on New York’s Long Island, I had the pleasure and privilege of being the keynote speaker at the annual dinner of the Liberty Survivors Association. I told them I was aware that if the attack had gone completely according to the plan of the man who ordered it, Israeli Defence Minister Moshe Dayan, none of them would have survived.
I also told them that although I am an Englishman who had not served in any of his country’s armed services (because conscription was abolished by the time I was old enough to have served), we did have something in common – OUTRAGE that could not be expressed adequately in polite words at the continued suppression in America of the truth about Israel’s attack on the Liberty.
On the 45th anniversary of that attack, this post is providing the complete text of Chapter Two of the three-volume American edition of my book Zionism: The Real Enemy of the Jews. The chapter is titled The Liberty Affair – “Pure Murder” on a “Great Day”.
My American publisher expressed to me the view that it is “the most revealing, the most riveting and the most important chapter in the whole book.” My own view is that it assists real understanding of what the Zionist state of Israel is – a monster beyond control.
Here is the chapter, complete with source notes.
Israel insisted (as it still does) that its attack on the Liberty was an unfortunate “accident”, a case of “mistaken identity”.
The attack ought to have been a sensational, headline-grabbing news story, but beyond the fact that an accident had happened and that Israel had apologised, it did not get reported by America’s news organisations. It was too hot an issue for them to handle and pursue. If it had been an Arab attack on an American vessel it would have been an entirely different matter, of course. In that event there would have been saturation coverage with demands for retaliation, with Zionist and other pro-Israeli columnists and commentators setting the pace and tone.
About the attack and its aftermath – the Johnson administration’s cover-up led by the President himself – retired American Admiral Thomas L. Moorer, who was appointed Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) a month after the incident, was subsequently to say to former U.S. Congressman Paul Findley, “If it was written as fiction nobody would believe it.”[i]
The attack itself, Admiral Moorer said to Findley, was “absolutely deliberate.” And the cover-up? “The clampdown was not actually for security reasons but for domestic political reasons. I don’t think there is any question about it. What other reasons could there have been? President Johnson was worried about the reaction of Jewish voters.” (For which read, I add, the awesome power of the Zionist lobby and its many stooges in Congress). The former Chairman of the JCS added: “The American people would be god damn mad if they knew what goes on.”[ii]
World War 3, anyone?
Is this your government?
Because it’s not mine
By John Kaminski | http://therebel.org/en/kaminski
They told lies about Syria and they turned out not to be true. Now they’re telling lies about the Ukraine and Russia, and they will turn out not to be true. The only problem is, will they start World War 3 in the meantime, as hawks in Congress and sycophants in the news media are chafing at the bit to see the bombs start dropping.
Is this your government? Because it’s sure not mine. It should be the objective of every decent American to overthrow this present government, because the crimes they continue to commit are sure to destroy the United States.
The Jew-run USA was all set to start WW3 when they were telling those lies about Syria a few months back until they were foiled by Vladimir Putin’s suggestion and Bashar al-Assad’s action and had to back off trying to give Assad the Qaddafi treatment. Shortly thereafter, Assad got 98 percent of the vote in an election monitored for honesty by everyone and the Jew SA creep gang had to turn the thugs they hired into ISIS and restart the war in Iraq.
Now we have Israel and American criminals putting Jew thugs in charge of the pathetic Ukrainians who are trying as best they can to kill most of their own residents in the eastern part of the country because they’re really Russians who just happened to live in an area that was declared to be part of the Ukraine back in the 1950s.
And now we have a jetliner that looks suspiciously like the jet that went missing months ago in Malaysia, full of corpses, shot down by Ukrainian jets, according to a Spanish air controller in Kiev, and we have every fascist political flunkie in Washington and every paid off sycophant whore on television saying Russia did it, and this is a good reason to start World War 3.
What happens next is so wrong; it will make you question the idea of America as being the land of the free. There can be freedom of speech – yes, as long as you are being ‘politically’ correct. If you fail to toe the line, Uncle Sam is going to get you. This video is the most powerful thing you will watch today.
Palestinian human rights group accuses Israel military of using shells that spray out thousands of tiny and potentially lethal darts
The Israeli military is using flechette shells, which spray out thousands of tiny and potentially lethal metal darts, in its military operation in Gaza.
Six flechette shells were fired towards the village of Khuzaa, east of Khan Younis, on 17 July, according to the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights. Nahla Khalil Najjar, 37, suffered injuries to her chest, it said. PCHR provided a picture of flechettes taken by a fieldworker last week.
The Israel Defence Forces (IDF) did not deny using the shells in the conflict. “As a rule, the IDF only employs weapons that have been determined lawful under international law, and in a manner which fully conforms with the laws of armed conflict,” a spokesperson said in response to a request for specific comment on the deployment of flechettes.
Who’s Your Bitch Daddy???
The Senate Appropriations defense subcommittee approved a defense spending bill on Tuesday that would provide $621.6 million for Israeli missile defense, including $351 million for the Iron Dome system that intercepts short-range rockets and mortars. In the latest hostilities between Israel and Hamas, Iron Dome has been successful in shooting down rockets and preventing Israeli deaths.
‘Following a similar resolution passed last week by the U.S. House, the U.S. Senate voted Thursday night to support Israel’s ongoing invasion of the Gaza Strip.
No dissenting vote was cast, and no mention was made of the hundreds of Palestinian civilians, most of whom are women and children, that have been killed by Israel in the past ten days.
Senate Resolution 498 was authored by Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), with additional support by Ben Cardin (D-MD) and son of former Republican party politician Ron Paul, Rand Paul (R-KY).’
Only in CA
(Reuters) – A Southern California couple who scaled back watering their lawn amid the state’s drought received a warning from the suburb where they live that they might be fined for creating an eyesore – despite emergency statewide orders to conserve.
The letter, bearing the official symbols of Glendora and its police department, came the same week that statewide water regulators passed emergency drought restrictions for outdoor water use. Those regulations, to take effect this August, require cities to demand cutbacks in water use, and empower them to fine residents up to $500 for overwatering their lawns.
California is in the third year of an extreme drought that is expected to cost the state an estimated $2.2 billion and more than 17,000 agricultural jobs. Democratic Governor Jerry Brown declared a drought emergency in January
(we pay for war machines, sell war machines and practice, practice, practice for more wars. What if we spent and did the same to achieve peace???)
(Reuters) – China has sent a spy ship to international waters off of Hawaii during a giant U.S.-led naval exercise involving 22 countries, even as Beijing participates in the drills for the first time this year, the U.S. Navy said on Sunday.
The Navy played down any U.S. intelligence risk associated with the proximity of the Chinese surveillance vessel and noted that China also sent a similar ship to monitor the last Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) exercise two years ago.
“We’ve taken all necessary precautions to protect our critical information,” said Captain Darryn James, chief spokesman of the U.S. Pacific Fleet.
“We expect this ship will remain outside of U.S. territorial seas and not operate in a manner that disrupts the ongoing Rim of the Pacific maritime exercise.”
‘A coalition of military servicemen is suing the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), which operates the devastated Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power facility in Japan, for injuries they sustained in the days following the massive earthquake and tsunami, which triggered three reactor core meltdowns.
One of these servicemen is Steve Simmons, a 17-year Navy veteran who says he sustained debilitating injuries after being called to provide aid following the disaster. Simmons, who served aboard the USS Ronald Reagan, claims that he lost the ability to use both his arms and legs, and that his hands are now “barely functional” due to radiation exposure.’
As WSJ reports, last week’s geopolitical chaos and distraction was ideal for a news dump, and the White House didn’t disappoint: On no legal basis, all 4.5 million residents of the five U.S. territories were quietly released from ObamaCare. It seems the costs of healthcare soared in these five territories due to uneconomic mandates – which woul dhave been a disaster PR-wise for the administration and so, under cover of catastrophe, WSJ reports all of a sudden last week HHS discovered new powers after “a careful review of this situation and the relevant statutory language,” that enabled them to ‘selectively exempt’ American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, Northern Mariana Islands, and Virgin Islands from Obamacare. And all while vacationing…
As WSJ reports,
The original House and Senate bills that became the Affordable Care Act included funding for insurance exchanges in these territories, as President Obama promised when as a Senator he campaigned in Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and other 2008 Democratic primaries. But the $14.5 billion in subsidies for the territories were dumped in 2010 as ballast when Democrats needed to claim the law reduced the deficit.
As a consolation, Democrats opened several public-health programs to the territories and bestowed most of ObamaCare’s insurance regulations, which liberals euphemize as “consumer protections,” such as requiring insurers to accept all comers and charge the same premiums regardless of patient health.
However, costs soared as no insurer would touch them…
These uneconomic mandates promptly caused insurance rates to soar and many insurers to flee the territorial markets. You can’t buy any policy at any price in the Mariana Islands. So the territories have spent the last two years beseeching HHS for a regulatory exemption.
So time to change the rules… from this…
As recently as last year, HHS instructed the territories that they “have enjoyed the benefits of the applicable consumer protections” and HHS “has no legal authority to exclude the territories” from ObamaCare.
Laws are made by Congress, but all of a sudden last week HHS discovered new powers after “a careful review of this situation and the relevant statutory language.”
American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, Northern Mariana Islands, and Virgin Islands.
They piled back into benchmark U.S. Treasuries (USGG10YR)yesterday after a civilian plane got shot down in eastern Ukraine and as Israeli troops entered Gaza. They accelerated withdrawals from the riskiest debt in the past week, yanking $2.3 billion from high-yield bond funds, the biggest outflow since June 2013, according to a Wells Fargo & Co. (WFC) report.
While credit still shows signs of froth — with new funds to buy junk-rated loans popping up left and right — investors are increasingly anxious about when the market will turn. Their quickness to dump high-risk for the safest ones around shows a lack of faith that easy-money policies from central banks around the world are fueling sufficient economic growth to keep this rally going.
‘Those of us who have long been describing the pharmaceutical industry as a “criminal racket” over the last few years have been wholly vindicated by recent news. Drug and vaccine manufacturer Merck was caught red-handed by two of its own scientists faking vaccine efficacy data by spiking blood samples with animal antibodies.
GlaxoSmithKline has just been fined a whopping $3 billion for bribing doctors, lying to the FDA, hiding clinical trial data and fraudulent marketing. Pfizer, meanwhile has been sued by the nation’s pharmacy retailers for what is alleged as an “overarching anticompetitive scheme” to keep generic cholesterol drugs off the market and thereby boost its own profits.
The picture that’s emerging is one of a criminal drug industry that has turned to mafia tactics in the absence of any real science that would prove their products to be safe or effective. The emergence of this extraordinary evidence of bribery, scientific fraud, lying to regulators and monopolistic practices that harm consumers is also making all those doctors and “skeptics” who defended Big Pharma and vaccines eat their words.’
