Knowledge is very different from what modern man conceives it to be: It is traditional and initiatory, contrary to common assumptions, modern man suffers from a fetish of the new, in which the only real or true knowledge can only be ever-evolving and changing theories that are wholly overturned a year later.
The futile search for a single unifying elementary particle reflects this idolatrous desire of man to find his deity through science, and not through revelation.
But if knowledge is initiatic and revelatory, this quest is a dead end. Man’s knowledge of this world is always temporal, finite and partial, and a presuppositional commitment to a world of constant flux can only give rise to a science that is ever and always in flux,
with no objective certainty
I have written on scientism lately, and in the archives several more critiques of scientism and naïve empiricism (its presupposition) are available. The question then arises as to how are we to replace this bad, contradictory narrative of man’s “progress” with something better. Is there an answer elsewhere? Can claims of religious belief and theology be rational? Are they not merely leaps of faith, with no reason behind them? In short, there are answers and religious claims are just as warranted as a “scientific” claim, and sometimes more so. When we consider “warranted” beliefs, as they are often termed in philosophy, we can see alternate explanations that are far superior to the reductionist materialism of our day.
It is my thesis that there is an alternate metaphysics that is suppressed by the centralized western establishment that has allowed a covert advancement in highly complex technologies, while the ignorant public have been given a mass consumption physics and worldview that is ultimately a dead-end (materialism). One of the chief arguments I fall back on is the fact that highly advanced technologies are based on a rigorous, formal logic that is ordered and perfectly systematic. Since logic itself, which forms the basis and presupposition of those systems, is not, and cannot be “matter,” the central narrative explanation of reality given by modern academia for man’s origins, “Enlightenment,” and so-called scientific advance is completely wrong.
8-Year-Old Girl Was Having 20,000 Seizures A Year And Was Given Only A Few Months To Live Until She Tried THIS Illegal Treatment
“She was dying, she could barely walk or talk, was unable to toilet herself and slept a similar cycle to a newborn,” said Cheri O’Connell to The Herald Sun, a mother of an epileptic child living in Victoria, Australia.
“We had basically been told that there was not too much more we could do, just to take her home and to love her and maybe if you are lucky she’ll get to nine, we didn’t see her having a future at all,” Ms. O’Connell said.
Cheri O’Connell and her daughter’s story took a turn for the better, however, after a controversial treatment yielded some miraculous results. In January last year, her desperate parents started her on a cannabis mix known as a tincture, after a cocktail of prescribed pharmaceutical medications left her heavily sedated while failing to stop the seizures.
In developments that have surprised doctors, one year later, Tara is a bubbly eight-year-old and her wheelchair is collecting dust in the corner of the family’s home in central Victoria.
Tom: What would be the motive to kill John Lennon on December 8, 1980? Lennon had been in seclusion for many years and had not yet released his new album.
Mae: Both the date of Lennon’s murder, and the careful selection of this particular victim are very important. Six weeks after Lennon’s death, Ronald Reagan would become President. Reagan and his soon-to-be appointed cabinet were prepared to build up the Pentagon war machine and increase the potential for war against the USSR. The first strike would fall on small countries like El Salvador and Guatemala. Lennon, alone, was the only man (even without his fellow Beatles) who had the ability to draw out one million anti-war protestors in any given city within 24 hours, if he opposed those war policies.
John Lennon was a spiritual force. He was a giant, like Gandhi, a man who wrote about peace and brotherly love. He taught an entire generation to think for themselves and to challenge authority. Lennon and the Beatles’ songs shout out the inequalities life and the messages of change. Change is a threat to the longtime status quo that Reagan’s team exemplified.
On my weekly radio broadcast of December 7, 1980, I stated that “the old assassination teams are coming back into power.” The very people responsible for covering up the murders of President John F. Kennedy, Senator Robert Kennedy, Reverend Martin Luther King, for Watergate and Koreagate, and the kidnapping and murder of Howard Hughes, and for hundreds of other deaths, had only six weeks before they would again be removing or silencing those voices of opposition to their policies.
Lennon was coming out once more. His album was cut. He was preparing to be part of the world, a world which was a worse place since the time he had withdrawn with his family. It was a sure bet Lennon would react and become a social activist again. That was the threat. Lennon realized that there was danger coming back into public view. He took that dangerous chance, and we all lost!
DeKalb County, Georgia, just to the east of Atlanta, figures prominently in Chapman’s life as it had some years earlier in that of Martin Luther King. In 1977 in a court affidavit, Robert Byron Watson, former employee of Magellon’s Art Gallery, Atlanta, named several citizens as having planned and bragged about the “future murder of Reverend Martin Luther King.” King’s death came just one week after the plans were discussed. These same people also talked about murdering Senator Robert Kennedy.
Chapman attended DeKalb Junior College in the area where these kinds of plans were laid and such political anger was being vented. From DeKalb County, Chapman was sent to Beirut, Lebanon. He was handed the funds both ways. Beirut was the center for George Habash and CIA assassination teams also identified in the Watson testimony before the House Select Committee on Assassinations in 1977-78.
On March 31, 1981, United Press International exposed the connection of “military training in a guerrilla camp” in Beirut, Lebanon to “worldwide Nazi ties.”
After six months in Lebanon, Chapman went to Fort Chaffee, Arkansas to work with Vietnam refugees recently arrived from Southeast Asia. Members of the CIA were with him at this military base.
William Colby’s Vietnam Phoenix program, staffed with agents who intensely hated the anti-war, social activists like John Lennon, had both the intent and the means to move persons like Chapman to their training camps and then to specific places planned as sites for future assassinations. Colby came back to the U.S. to become Director of the C.I.A. at a time (1973) when “Operation Chaos” was in full swing against the hippies, rock musicians, and anti-war protestors. Many of them were killed or otherwise neutralized.
The years from 1976 to 1978 in Chapman’s biography are still vague and murky: two years of limited employment and “mental treatment.” Allegedly, he was in the hospital for a mental breakdown. On the other hand, if there were any evidence of mental instability, would not his permit application to buy the murder weapon have been denied?
There were many years, months, days when Chapman could have been mentally programmed to become like the “Manchurian Candidate,” specifically to murder John Lennon, if and when he re-entered public life. Lennon was not threat until the U.S. was getting close to another war.
Subsequently, Chapman took a long “vacation”, including a trip around the world. During this voyage he made a trip to Switzerland to meet a pal from DeKalb County, Georgia, the same man who earlier had arranged the original trip to Lebanon. The journey culminated in London with a rare visit to a live Lennon concert.
Chapman’s wife, who worked for a travel agency, “arranged his itinerary”. The source of the money for his fare, hotels, food, concerts, has never been identified, although Pacific Holding Ltd., a “tourism” company formed by the CIA and Special Forces, may be implicated. Both groups had funds to hire assassination teams.

A philosophy major at Stanford during World War II, Mae Brussell, of Carmel Valley, was the great-granddaughter of Isaac Magnin who founded I. Magnin’s clothing stores. Her father, Edgar Magnin, was a respected and well known Rabbi in Los Angeles.

To have known Mae Brussell is to know that the expected or accepted would be entirely out of the question.
Many “bee-friendly” home garden plants sold at Home Depot (NYSE: HD), Lowe’s (NYSE: LOW) and Walmart (NYSE: WMT) have been pre-treated with pesticides shown to harm and kill bees, according to a study released today by Friends of the Earth and allies.
The study, Gardeners Beware 2014, shows that 36 out of 71 (51 percent) of garden plant samples purchased at top garden retailers in 18 cities in the United States and Canada contain neonicotinoid (neonic) pesticides — a key contributor to recent bee declines. Some of the flowers contained neonic levels high enough to kill bees outright assuming comparable concentrations are present in the flowers’ pollen and nectar. Further, 40 percent of the positive samples contained two or more neonics.
Can you Say “Chemtrails” ????
When American geologist Ulyana Horodyskyj set up a mini weather station at 5,800m on Mount Himlung, on the Nepal-Tibet border, she looked east towards Everest and was shocked. The world’s highest glacier, Khumbu, was turning visibly darker as particles of fine dust, blown by fierce winds, settled on the bright, fresh snow. “One-week-old snow was turning black and brown before my eyes,” she said.
The problem was even worse on the nearby Ngozumpa glacier, which snakes down from Cho Oyu – the world’s sixth highest mountain. There, Horodyskyj found that so much dust had been blown on to the surface that the ability of the ice to reflect sunlight, a process known as albedo, dropped 20% in a single month. The dust that was darkening the brilliant whiteness of the snow was heating up in the strong sun and melting the snow and ice, she said.
The phenomenon of “dark snow” is being recorded from the Himalayas to the Arctic as increasing amounts of dust from bare soil, soot from fires and ultra-fine particles of “black carbon” from industry and diesel engines are being whipped up and deposited sometimes thousands of miles away. The result, say scientists, is a significant dimming of the brightness of the world’s snow and icefields, leading to a longer melt season, which in turn creates feedback where more solar heat is absorbed and the melting accelerates.

Al Gore climbs into bed with billionaire coal king Clive Palmer to announce the scrapping of the Carbon tax..yes really..
Australian politics has witnessed many strange events, but fewer as gob-smacking as the alliance revealed late this afternoon between maverick politician Clive Palmer and former United States Vice President Al Gore.
The billionaire MP and the world’s most famous campaigner against global warming have joined forces to turn Tony Abbott’s climate policy upside down.
Mr Palmer announced when his senators assume the balance of power next month they’ll support the repeal of the carbon tax, on the condition that the savings from abolishing the bill go to consumers.
In a stunning turnaround, Palmer also wants to bring in a new emissions trading scheme and he also wants to keep the Renewable Energy Target and the Climate Change Authority.
Climate change is a global problem and it must have a global solution. Air moves around the world. Many countries fail to act because they’re unsure how the issue will be dealt with by other nations. Australia has got an opportunity to set a standard which can act as a catalyst for the whole world, to set a fair framework which the world can follow. As President Obama in the US has shown, great leadership and encouraging all countries to act, Australia needs to do its fair share.
In voting against the abolition of the Climate Change Authority, Palmer United senators will move an amendment to establish an emissions trading scheme.
Monsanto, the world’s largest genetically modified (GM/GMO) seed producer, has been at the centre of controversy for decades as evidence of the harmful effects on humans of GM foods continues to mount. Joined with the likes of DuPont’s Pioneer Hi-Bred International and Syngenta, Monsanto and partners comprise the corporate nexus of Big-Agri, where the control over our food supply is increasingly transferred into the hands of private trans-national corporations as opposed to local farmers and governments.
(include gluten intolerance, childhood obesity, allergies, asthma, ADHD and Ashtma to the list…)
A US peer-reviewed study conducted last year which was published in the scientific journal Entropy, linked Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup – which is the most popular weed killer in the world – to infertility, cancers and Parkinsons Disease amongst other ailments. The authors of the study were Stephanie Seneff, a research scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Anthony Samsel, a retired science consultant from Arthur D. Little, Inc. and a former private environmental government contractor. The main ingredient in Roundup is the “insidious” glyphosate, which the study found to be a deeply harmful chemical:
“Glyphosate enhances the damaging effects of other food borne chemical residues and environmental toxins. Negative impact on the body is insidious and manifests slowly over time as inflammation damages cellular systems throughout the body […] Consequences are most of the diseases and conditions associated with a Western diet, which include gastrointestinal disorders, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, depression, autism, infertility, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease” (Samsel and Seneff, 2013).
Gluten-free foods have now become a $4 billion dollar industry. More and more people are realizing every day that they aren’t as sick as they thought they were — that a reaction to the gluten from wheat found in thousands of products on their grocery store shelves is actually damaging the lining of their intestine, rendering them unable to absorb nutrients properly, which manifests all sorts of horrible health issues. Gluten intolerance and celiac disease can actually present as over 200 different symptoms. For example, did you know that gluten sensitivities can show up as:
Imagine getting a call from your doctor if you let your gym membership lapse, make a habit of buying candy bars at the checkout counter, or begin shopping at plus-size clothing stores. For patients of Carolinas HealthCare System, which operates the largest group of medical centers in North and South Carolina, such a day could be sooner than they think. Carolinas HealthCare, which runs more than 900 care centers, including hospitals, nursing homes, doctors’ offices, and surgical centers, has begun plugging consumer data on 2 million people into algorithms designed to identify high-risk patients so that doctors can intervene before they get sick. The company purchases the data from brokers who cull public records, store loyalty program transactions, and credit card purchases.
Information on consumer spending can provide a more complete picture than the glimpse doctors get during an office visit or through lab results, says Michael Dulin, chief clinical officer for analytics and outcomes research at Carolinas HealthCare. The Charlotte-based hospital chain is placing its data into predictive models that give risk scores to patients. Within two years, Dulin plans to regularly distribute those scores to doctors and nurses who can then reach out to high-risk patients and suggest changes before they fall ill. “What we are looking to find are people before they end up in trouble,” says Dulin, who is a practicing physician.

Most Oracle professionals are surprised to learn that the name “Oracle” originates from the name of a CIA project. This article in Forbes Magazine notes that Oracle billionaire Larry Ellison worked on a CIA project with the code-name “Oracle”:
“He [Larry Ellison] dropped out of the University of Chicago in the 1960s, headed to Berkeley, Calif. and by the mid-1970s began working on a database project. Code name: Oracle. Client: the Central Intelligence Agency.
In 1977, Ellison founded the company with Robert Miner and Edward Oates, naming it after the CIA job.”
HOW TO TELL ORACLE CORP. FOUNDER LARRY ELLISON FROM GOD
Oracle’s coziness with government goes back to its founding / Firm’s growth sustained as niche established with federal state agencies
SFGATE.com | May 20, 2002
… Company co-founders Larry Ellison Robert Miner and Ed Oates worked on Project Oracle at a consulting firm before striking out on their own.
A quarter century later close to a quarter of the company’s revenue — $2. 5 billion a year — still comes from selling software to federal state and local agencies.
“Oracle wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for government contracts,” said Mike Wilson, author of the book The Difference Between God and Larry Ellison.
Oracle has 1000 sales and consulting workers focused exclusively on government work. And in the wake of Sept. 11 Oracle is counting on the heightened interest in staving off terrorism to boost its government ties even more.
Oracle has been actively pitching software to local governments to create detailed digital maps that could be used to respond to attacks. In March the company formed a partnership to focus on airport security. Ellison even offered to give the federal government software to help create a national ID to thwart terrorists. In a background paper Oracle boasts that it is “very active in homeland security.”

CEOs of most of the world’s largest corporations daily make decisions that destroy the lives of many other human beings. Only about 1 to 3 percent of us are sociopaths – people who don’t have normal human feelings and can easily go to sleep at night after having done horrific things. And of that 1 percent of sociopaths, there’s probably only a fraction of a percent with a college education. And of that tiny fraction, there’s an even tinier fraction that understands how business works, particularly within any specific industry. Thus there is such a shortage of people who can run modern monopolistic, destructive corporations that stockholders have to pay millions to get them to work. And being sociopaths, they gladly take the money without any thought to its social consequences.” — Thom Hartman
What the perpetrators know, and neither the people nor their children do, is that a recovery is not possible, because as things stand it would have to be built on a pile of debt so large that it makes any recovery impossible. Record stock markets, higher home prices and a tidal wave of good news stories about equal in size to the debt tidal wave, have kept the public in the dark about this painfully simple fact. Meanwhile, not only is the bankrupt financial system being kept alive, it’s made much richer. What makes this possible is the same thing that makes it possible for us to continue our ‘normal’ lives, and to pretend that it’s normal in the first place, to let debt increase where we don’t immediately notice it. It’s like a bunch of guys with masks coming into your home at night while you’re watching TV, and taking away everything that’s not in your direct range of vision. And then the morning comes.
The U.S. will remain the world’s biggest oil producer this year after overtaking Saudi Arabia and Russia as extraction of energy from shale rock spurs the nation’s economic recovery, Bank of America Corp. said.
U.S. production of crude oil, along with liquids separated from natural gas, surpassed all other countries this year with daily output exceeding 11 million barrels in the first quarter, the bank said in a report today. The country became the world’s largest natural gas producer in 2010. The International Energy Agency said in June that the U.S. was the biggest producer of oil and natural gas liquids.
“The U.S. increase in supply is a very meaningful chunk of oil,” Francisco Blanch, the bank’s head of commodities research, said by phone from New York. “The shale boom is playing a key role in the U.S. recovery. If the U.S. didn’t have this energy supply, prices at the pump would be completely unaffordable.”
Swarms of small earthquakes that have surged in Oklahoma since 2008 can be blamed on wastewater from fracking being injected into the earth, and they represent a potential hazard for the state capitol, Oklahoma City, according to a study published today in Science.
This is not the first set of earthquakes to be linked to fracking, but the study arrives at a time when some states are finally starting to pay attention to the danger.
The United States is experiencing boom times for domestic oil and natural gas extraction, largely due to the practice of hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” which helps to release hard-to-get fossil fuels through the fracturing of rock with injected fluid. But one of the many downsides of the method comes from the subsequent disposal of wastewater generated in the process. Much of that water is pumped deep underground, and some of those injection sites have been linked to earthquakes.
Underlying geology plays a huge role in determining whether or not that fluid will set the earth shaking. And something about fracking the rocks of Oklahoma has given life to what ought to be a pretty seismically quiet place: Oklahoma has now become home to more small earthquakes than California.
