Renewable energy muscled out coal to become Germany’s biggest source of electricity for the first time last year, helped by a surge in solar panel installations and coal-plant closures.

If you are trying to conceive, you can take charge of the process. Fertility awareness or natural family planning can increase your odds.

The Fertility Awareness Method uses basal body temperature, cervical mucus, and cervical position to determine a woman’s most fertile days. Unlike the Rhythm Method, Fertility Awareness does not assume every woman’s fertility fits a predetermined mold. Every woman is unique, and not every cycle is the same, even for the same woman.

Understanding Ovulation

A woman’s menstrual cycle begins on the first day of her menstrual period. According to Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler, MPH, the average cycle lasts 24 to 35 days. Ovulation usually occurs between days 11 and 21. However, a woman is fertile only two days during this time. Knowing when is fundamental if you are trying to conceive.

During ovulation, four hormones come into play. The first is Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH). This hormone tells about 20 eggs it is time to mature. Each egg is held in a follicle. The follicles produce the second ovulation hormone, estrogen. Once a follicle is large enough to break through the ovary, ovulation occurs.

The egg breaks free of the ovary aided by the third hormone, Luteinizing Hormone, and is swept up by the fimbria, the end of the fallopian tube, and taken into the tube. After this occurs, the follicle that released the egg becomes a corpus luteum, which releases progesterone. The progesterone does three things:

 • Inhibits the release of any more eggs during that cycle.

Causes a thickening in the uterine lining.

Causes a change in waking temperature (basal body temperature), increase in cervical fluid, and change in cervical position.

On occasion, a woman may naturally release two eggs during ovulation due to the release of higher than average levels of FSH. The result, if conception takes place and both embryos are viable, is a set of fraternal twins. More often than not, one is spontaneously miscarried or reabsorbed, a phenomenon known as vanishing twin syndrome.

Monitoring for Fertility

To monitor for ovulation, you will need a calendar and a basal thermometer. Each morning, check your awakening temperature and chart it on your calendar.

Preovulatory temperatures are lower due to higher estrogen levels. As progesterone is produced, awakening temperatures increase.

Normally, a woman’s basal body temperature is about 97.0 to 97.5 degrees Fahrenheit before ovulation. Postovulatory temperatures are around 97.6 to 98.6 degrees. The day of a sudden jump in temperature signals ovulation.

Cervical fluid also increases greatly the day of ovulation. The function of cervical fluid is to help the sperm survive and aid in their journey to the fallopian tube. Therefore, an extreme increase in fluid is another sign of ovulation.

To monitor for this sign of ovulation, check the vaginal opening for moisture. Toni Weschler, author of Taking Charge of Your Fertility, describes the fluid at ovulation as resembling raw egg white.

The third sign of ovulation is a soft, high cervix. Checking your cervix is an optional step in monitoring your fertility. After and just before menstruation, the cervix is firm, closed and dry. Around ovulation it softens, opens and becomes extremely wet.

Some other signs of ovulation are:

   • spotting

   • pain or an ache around the ovary, known as Mittelschmerzen (German for middle pain)

   • increased sexual arousal

   • increased energy

   • higher sensitivity in breasts and skin

If you are trying to conceive, grab your calendar and thermometer. It may take a month or two to learn your body, but if you have no underlying fertility issues, you should be able to get pregnant before a great deal of time passes.

The first eight months of WWII with no fighting was called The Phoney War. Using millimetre waves as a fifth-generation or 5G wireless communications technology is a phoney war of another kind.

Article written by Claire Edwards.

This phoney war is also silent, but this time shots are being fired – in the form of laser-like beams of electromagnetic radiation (EMR) from banks of thousands of tiny antennas[1] – and almost no one in the firing line knows that they are being silently, seriously and irreparably injured.

In the first instance, 5G is likely to make people electro-hypersensitive (EHS).[2] Perhaps it was sitting in front of two big computer screens for many of the 18 years I worked at the UN that made me EHS. When the UN Office at Vienna installed powerful WiFi and cellphone access points – designed to serve large, public areas – in narrow, metal-walled corridors throughout the Vienna International Centre in December 2015, I was ill continuously for seven months.

I did my best for two and a half years to alert the UN staff union, administration and medical service to the danger to the health of UN staff of EMR from these access points, but was ignored. That’s why, in May 2018, I took the issue to the UN Secretary-General, António Guterres[transcript]. He is a physicist and electrical engineer and lectured on telecommunications signals early in his career, yet asserted that he knew nothing about this. He undertook to ask the World Health Organization to look into it, but seven months later those public access points remain in place. I received no replies to my many follow-up emails.

As a result, I welcomed the opportunity to join the effort to publish an International Appeal to Stop 5G on Earth and in Space because it was clear to me that, despite there having been 43 earlier scientific appeals, very few people understood the dangers of EMR. My experience as an editor could help ensure that a new 5G appeal, including the issue of beaming 5G from space, was clear, comprehensive, explanatory, and accessible to the non-scientist. The International Appeal to Stop 5G on Earth and in Space is fully referenced, citing over a hundred scientific papers among the tens of thousands on the biological effects of EMR published over the last 80 years.[3]

Having spent years editing UN documents dealing with space, I know that outer space is hotly contested geopolitically and any untoward event involving a military satellite risks triggering a catastrophic response.[4] Space law is so inadequate – just one example is the complexity of space liability law[5],[6] – that we could really call the Earth orbits a new Wild West. China caused international consternation in 2007 when it demonstrated an anti-satellite weapon by destroying its own satellite. Space debris is the main concern among space-faring nations, with a so-called Kessler syndrome positing a cascade of space debris that could make the Earth orbits unusable for a thousand years.[7] Does launching 20,000+ commercial 5G satellites in such circumstances sound rational to you?

I live in Vienna, Austria, where the 5G rollout is suddenly upon us. Within the last five weeks, pre-5G has been officially announced at Vienna airport and 5G at the Rathausplatz, the main square in Vienna, which attracts tens of thousands of visitors to its Christmas market each December and skating rink each January, which are special treats for children. Along with birds and insects, children are the most vulnerable to 5G depredation because of their little bodies.[8]

Friends and acquaintances and their children in Vienna are already reporting the classic symptoms of EMR poisoning:[9] nosebleeds, headaches, eye pains, chest pains, nausea, fatigue, vomiting, tinnitus, dizziness, flu-like symptoms, and cardiac pain. They also report a tight band around the head; pressure on the top of the head; short, stabbing pains around the body; and buzzing internal organs. Other biological effects such as tumours and dementia usually take longer to manifest, but in the case of 5G, which has never been tested for health or safety, who knows?[10]

Seemingly overnight a forest of 5G infrastructure has sprouted in Austria. In the space of three weeks one friend has gone from robust health to fleeing this country, where she has lived for 30 years. Each person experiences EMR differently. For her, it was extreme torture so she and I spent her last two nights in Austria sleeping in the woods. Interestingly, as she drove across southern Germany, she suffered torture even worse than in Austria, while in northern Germany she had no symptoms at all and felt completely normal, which suggests that there has been as yet no 5G rollout there.

There are no legal limits on exposure to EMR. Conveniently for the telecommunications industry, there are only non-legally enforceable guidelines such as those produced by the grandly named International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection, which turns out to be like the Wizard of Oz, just a tiny little NGO in Germany that appoints its own members, none of whom is a medical doctor or environmental expert.[11]

Like the Wizard of Oz, ICNIRP seems to have magical powers. Its prestidigitation makes non-thermal (non-heating) effects of EMR exposure disappear into thin air, for taking into account the tens of thousands of research studies demonstrating the biological effects of EMR would invalidate its so-called safety guidelines.[12] It has bewitched the International Telecommunication Union, part of the UN family, into recognizing these guidelines.[13] And one little email sent to ICNIRP in October 2018 to submit Professor Martin Pall’s comments on ICNIRP’s new draft guidelines conjured up an immediate explosion of interest in the sender’s online presence – which had hitherto attracted none – from companies and individuals worldwide, one country’s immigration authorities, the office of the Austrian Chancellor (head of government), a firm of lawyers in Vienna and even Interpol![14],[15]

I hope that people read and share our Stop 5G Space Appeal to wake up themselves and others quickly and use it to take action themselves to stop 5G. Even eight short months of this 5G Phoney War could spell catastrophe for all life on Earth. Elon Musk is set to launch the first 4,425 5G satellites in June 2019 and “blanket” the Earth with 5G, in breach of countless international treaties. This could initiate the last great extinction, courtesy of the multi-trillion-US-dollar 5G, the biggest biological experiment and most heinous manifestation of hubris and greed in human history.10

People’s first reaction to the idea that 5G may be an existential threat to all life on Earth is usually disbelief and/or cognitive dissonance. Once they examine the facts, however, their second reaction is often terror. We need to transcend this in order to see 5G as an opportunity to empower ourselves, take responsibility and take action. We may have already lost 80 per cent of our insects to EMR in the last 20 years.[16] Our trees risk being cut down by the millions in order to ensure continuous 5G signalling for self-driving cars, buses and trains.[17] Are we going to stand by and see ourselves and our children irradiated, our food systems decimated, our natural surroundings destroyed?

Our newspapers are now casually popularizing the meme that human extinction would be a good thing,[18],[19] but when the question becomes not rhetorical but real, when it’s your life, your child, your community, your environment that is under immediate threat, can you really subscribe to such a suggestion? If you don’t, please sign the Stop 5G Appeal and get active in contacting everyone you can think of who has the power to stop 5G, especially Elon Musk[20] and the CEOs of all the other companies planning to launch 5G satellites, starting in just 20 weeks from now. Life on Earth needs your help now.

The transcript of my exchange with the UN Secretary-General of 14 May 2018 follows.

[Start of transcript]

Staff member: Mr. Secretary-General

UN staff have repeatedly been told that they are the most important resource of this Organization.

Since December 2015, the staff here at the Vienna International Centre have been exposed to off-the-scale electromagnetic radiation from WiFi and mobile phone boosters installed on very low ceilings throughout the buildings. Current public exposure levels are at least one quintillion times (that’s 18 zeros) above natural background radiation according to Professor Olle Johansson of the Karolinska Institute in Sweden.

The highly dangerous biological effects of EMFs have been documented by thousands of studies since 1932 indicating that we may be facing a global health catastrophe orders of magnitude worse than those caused by tobacco and asbestos.

Mr. Secretary-General, on the basis of the Precautionary Principle, I urge you to have these EMF-emitting devices removed immediately and to call a halt to any rollout of 5G at UN duty stations, because it is designed to deliver concentrated and focused electromagnetic radiation in excess of 100 times current levels in the same way as do directed energy weapons.

In line with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, to “Protect, Respect and Remedy”, 5G technologies MUST be subjected to an independent health and safety assessment before they are launched anywhere in the world.

There is currently an international appeal (https://www.emfscientist.org/index. php/emf-scientist-appeal) signed by 237 EMF scientists from 41 nations urging the UN and particularly the WHO to exert strong leadership in fostering the development of more protective EMF guidelines, encouraging precautionary measures, and educating the public about health risks, particularly risk to children and fetal development.

Mr. Secretary-General, we have a unique opportunity here at the UN Office at Vienna. Since our medical records are digitized, you have the possibility of releasing data on a closed population exposed to off-the-scale levels of electromagnetic radiation to establish if there have already been abnormal health consequences for the UN staff here in the last 28 months.

I urge you to do so and stop any 5G rollout in these buildings immediately.

Thank you.

UN Secretary-General: Sorry, because you are talking to someone who is a little bit ignorant on these things. You’re talking about the WiFi systems?

Staff member: On the ceilings of these buildings, WiFi boosters and cell phone boosters were installed without consultation, without information to staff in December 2015. Now, if you understand electromagnetic radiation, the signal is – if you cannot get a signal from your mobile phone, the signal goes to maximum strength and that then bounces off metal walls affecting the body multiple times at maximum exposure levels. So the situation here is extremely dangerous. I have heard anecdotally of many people who have had health problems. I don’t know if they are related but the Precautionary Principle would dictate that we use our medical records to look into this and that we remove these dangerous devices immediately. Thank you.

UN Secretary-General: Well, I’m worried because I put those devices in my house. [Laughter & applause]

Staff member: Not a good idea!

UN Secretary-General: This I will have to – I confess my ignorance on this but I’m going to raise this with WHO [World Health Organization] – which I think is the organization that might be able to deal with it properly for them to put someonetheir staff or organizations to work on that because I must confess I was not aware of that danger – [humorously] to the extent that I put those things in the rooms of my housein the ceiling.

Staff member: I would suggest that everybody start looking into this issue and particularly into 5G, which 237 scientists from 41 countries consider a threat that is far worse than the tobacco and asbestos threats of the past.

UN Secretary-General: Well, maybe I have learned something completely new. I hope it will be very useful to me but I confess it is the first time I hear about it.

We may have already lost 80 per cent of our insects to EMR in the last 20 years.[16] Our trees risk being cut down by the millions in order to ensure continuous 5G signalling for self-driving cars, buses and trains.[17] Are we going to stand by and see ourselves and our children irradiated, our food systems decimated, our natural surroundings destroyed?

Our newspapers are now casually popularizing the meme that human extinction would be a good thing,[18],[19] but when the question becomes not rhetorical but real, when it’s your life, yourchild, your community, your environment that is under immediate threat, can you really subscribe to such a suggestion? If you don’t, please sign the Stop 5G Appeal and get active in contacting everyone you can think of who has the power to stop 5G, especially Elon Musk[20] and the CEOs of all the other companies planning to launch 5G satellites, starting in just 20 weeks from now. Life on Earth needs your help now.

The transcript of my exchange with the UN Secretary-General of 14 May 2018 follows.

[Start of transcript]

Staff member: Mr. Secretary-General

UN staff have repeatedly been told that they are the most important resource of this Organization.

Since December 2015, the staff here at the Vienna International Centre have been exposed to off-the-scale electromagnetic radiation from WiFi and mobile phone boosters installed on very low ceilings throughout the buildings. Current public exposure levels are at least one quintillion times (that’s 18 zeros) above natural background radiation according to Professor Olle Johansson of the Karolinska Institute in Sweden.

The highly dangerous biological effects of EMFs have been documented by thousands of studies since 1932 indicating that we may be facing a global health catastrophe orders of magnitude worse than those caused by tobacco and asbestos.

Mr. Secretary-General, on the basis of the Precautionary Principle, I urge you to have these EMF-emitting devices removed immediately and to call a halt to any rollout of 5G at UN duty stations, because it is designed to deliver concentrated and focused electromagnetic radiation in excess of 100 times current levels in the same way as do directed energy weapons.

In line with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, to “Protect, Respect and Remedy”, 5G technologies MUST be subjected to an independent health and safety assessment before they are launched anywhere in the world.

There is currently an international appeal (https://www.emfscientist.org/index. php/emf-scientist-appeal) signed by 237 EMF scientists from 41 nations urging the UN and particularly the WHO to exert strong leadership in fostering the development of more protective EMF guidelines, encouraging precautionary measures, and educating the public about health risks, particularly risk to children and fetal development.

Mr. Secretary-General, we have a unique opportunity here at the UN Office at Vienna. Since our medical records are digitized, you have the possibility of releasing data on a closed population exposed to off-the-scale levels of electromagnetic radiation to establish if there have already been abnormal health consequences for the UN staff here in the last 28 months.

I urge you to do so and stop any 5G rollout in these buildings immediately.

Thank you.

UN Secretary-General: Sorry, because you are talking to someone who is a little bit ignorant on these things. You’re talking about the WiFi systems?

Staff member: On the ceilings of these buildings, WiFi boosters and cell phone boosters were installed without consultation, without information to staff in December 2015. Now, if you understand electromagnetic radiation, the signal is – if you cannot get a signal from your mobile phone, the signal goes to maximum strength and that then bounces off metal walls affecting the body multiple times at maximum exposure levels. So the situation here is extremely dangerous. I have heard anecdotally of many people who have had health problems. I don’t know if they are related but the Precautionary Principle would dictate that we use our medical records to look into this and that we remove these dangerous devices immediately. Thank you.

UN Secretary-General: Well, I’m worried because I put those devices in my house. [Laughter & applause]

Staff member: Not a good idea!

UN Secretary-General: This I will have to – I confess my ignorance on this but I’m going to raise this with WHO [World Health Organization] – which I think is the organization that might be able to deal with it properly for them to put someone – their staff or organizations to work on that because I must confess I was not aware of that danger – [humorously] to the extent that I put those things in the rooms of my house – in the ceiling.

Staff member: I would suggest that everybody start looking into this issue and particularly into 5G, which 237 scientists from 41 countries consider a threat that is far worse than the tobacco and asbestos threats of the past.

UN Secretary-General: Well, maybe I have learned something completely new. I hope it will be very useful to me but I confess it is the first time I hear about it.

“However, as more countries integrate space into their national military capabilities and rely on space-based information for national security, there is an increased chance that any interference (either actual or perceived) with satellites could spark or escalate tensions and conflict in space or on Earth.

There are thousands of neurotransmitters (brain chemicals) at work in your brain, constantly being released via neural pathways created by axons and special branches that reach out from your brain cells like tree limbs called dendrites. About 10% of your neurotransmitters are in charge of some of the most significant aspects of your daily life, and among those is serotonin.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Serotonin, otherwise known by its scientific name as 5-hydroxytryptamine or 5-HT, is most significantly linked to your mood. Without enough of it, you’re prone to depression and anxiety. Depressed people almost across the board also show up with low serotonin levels in lab results, as well as a depleted myelin sheath around their brain cells. This is a fatty layer that helps protect your neurons and allows them to receive neurochemical signals.

Serotonin also helps to regulate your sleep cycles, your hunger (or the suppression of it), and helping your smooth muscles constrict so that you can walk or run a marathon. Without enough serotonin, you’ll also suffer from severe insomnia because it is a precursor molecule for the creation of melatonin – the hormone that allows you to calm down and sleep soundly. Serotonin can even cause memory issues and cognitive decline if there isn’t enough of it in your body and brain.

Oddly, about 90% of your serotonin isn’t made in your brain, but in your gut. So, gut health is key to make sure that you are creating enough of it because a specific set of helpful gut microbes help to create it. [1]

This leads to the number one way to increase serotonin levels naturally, but there are more.

Sadly millions of people are currently taking SSRIs, prescription drugs also known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors to try to alter their serotonin levels to treat depression and anxiety. There are several ways that this can be done completely naturally, though!

  1. Eat foods that contain probiotics, and eat plenty of polyphenols because these act as food for healthy gut bacteria which can help increase both serotonin and dopamine levels in your body. Polyphenols can be found in grape skins, as well as brightly colored foods like blueberries or pomegranate. To reduce sugar levels from consuming too much fruit though, you can also supplement.
  2. Get plenty of exercise. Daily, moderate exercise will help to boost serotonin levels. You don’t have to overdo it. Just get your heart rate up or try weight lifting. Cardiovascular exercise or building muscle each create more serotonin and increase neuroplasticity to boot. [2]
  3. Increase your healthy Omega 3 fatty acids, particularly DHA. Your brain and gut love healthy fats. Stay away from processed vegetable oils that have to go through a chemical process, but eat plenty of avocado, coconut and coconut oil, Extra Virgin olive oil, hemp seeds, nuts, and seeds that are high Omega 3s. You can also supplement with a seaweed derived DHA supplement and stay vegan or vegetarian. [3] You need these healthy fats as well to protect the fatty layer that surrounds your neurons. [4]
  4. Listen to happy music. Listening to uplifting or positive music can boost serotonin levels and make your more creative, too. [5]
  5. Spend time in nature. Nature has an amazing way of boosting lots of our important neurotransmitters like GABA, serotonin, dopamine, and oxytocin just for starters. Walk outside in the forest, swim in the ocean or get to your nearest park at least once daily.
  6. Spend time in sunlight. The sun has some unexplored ways of raising important neurotransmitters like serotonin. Scientists are still trying to figure out why the sun affects our neurochemical hormones, but try to get at least 20 minutes of real sunlight daily without sunscreen or sunglasses on. [6]
  7. Eat more tryptophan. This is a precursor to serotonin. You can find plant sources in pumpkin seeds, pineapple and nuts like Brazil nuts, Pecans, and Walnuts.
  8. Get adequate co-factors. Adequate amounts of co-factors that support serotonin are best obtained by taking therapeutic doses of magnesium, zinc, folic acid, vitamins C and B6. This will also limit gastrointestinal distress that is often caused by taking pharmaceutical drugs that are meant to increase serotonin levels, but that can cause gastrointestinal distress as a side effect, among other negative health consequences. [7]

Try some of these serotonin boosting tricks today and enjoy better sleep, less anxiety and an elevated mood as well as a clear mind and a positive outlook.

In the near future, citizens around the world will have the opportunity to live in economical, sustainable, and secure housing made entirely from hemp, a variety of the cannabis plant. Not only can the prefabricated abodes be constructed in a fraction of the time modern-day homes require, but they are also said to be more durable and affordable, as well as earthquake-resistant.

The progressive home was constructed by Dun Agro, a Dutch company specializing in “hemp concrete,” also referred to as “hempcrete.” Hemp is a versatile variety of the cannabis plant. It can be used to make everything from industrial building materials and food to clothing and bio-fuel. Unlike its cousin, hemp does not contain tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). As a result, it is impossible to get “high” from ingesting or using the material.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Dun Agro hempcrete is made from hemp fibers, water and glue. After it is pressed together in a mold to make prefab sections for houses, the mixture dries over a period of three months. Then, all sections of the home can be assembled.

On November 30th, Dun Agro put its hemp home on display. The company has already completed its second hemp home and has plans to build and sell more in the near future. In fact, with the present output of hemp in the Netherlands, the company estimates it can produce up to 500 hemp houses per year. If the demand increases, that number can easily be scaled up.

Credit: Dun Agro

Dun Agro isn’t the first company that has attempted to build a prefabricated hemp house. However, the company does claim to be the first to have succeeded in doing so. The company lists the negative CO2 footprint as a primary benefit of purchasing a hemp home. Hemp takes on 13,500 kilos of CO2 when it grows and it remains stored in the hempcrete.

Right now in the Netherlands, 1,100 hectares of agricultural land is being used to grow hemp. Farmers are choosing to cultivate the crop for extra income and to benefit the environment. If you support hemp agriculture, share this article and comment your thoughts below!

We are having a partial Solar Eclipse in Capricorn which happens on January 5th in the Americas and on January 6th everywhere else in the world. This is a supercharged New Moon which influences a longer term period then a regular New Moon. It will be visible from Japan, Korea, most of Mongolia, parts of Central and Eastern China, and Southwestern Alaska.

This one marks the beginning of eclipse season which occurs every 6 months when a New Moon and Full Moon occur near the Lunar Nodes, which is where the path of the Sun and Moon meet from our perspective on Earth. Most of the time there are two eclipses, such as in January, however there can also be three in some cases. This one is followed by a Total Lunar Eclipse in Leo on January 20th/21st.

Solar Eclipses reflect changes and shifts which affect the 6 months following and could also influence up to 6 weeks prior. You may not actually notice the effects around the time it occurs, but perhaps could feel it, and then see it actually play out in the weeks or months following. (Join my mailing list here to get my article on the next eclipse and other content).

The Lunar Nodes recently moved into the Cancer-Capricorn polarity in November and will be there until Spring 2020. They were in Leo-Aquarius prior to that, since May 2017. However, we had our first Cancer eclipse last summer and will have our last Leo eclipse coming up in a few weeks as this is still the transition period. The final eclipses in Cancer-Capricorn will occur in the Summer of 2020.

The positions of the Eclipses and the Nodes reflect an evolutionary process in how we work with the energies of these signs. What results from this series of eclipses will have longer-term effects even beyond this period.

Solar Eclipse In Capricorn Conjunct Saturn and Pluto

This Solar Eclipse is on the South Node side of the polarity. The shifts that could occur, both challenges and developments, are more about  changes or what we need to let go of, in relation to the energies of Capricorn to help facilitate a different balance with Cancer.

Negative expressions of Capricorn could come up which would ultimately push these changes on us. However, South Node eclipses can also push us to work with its energies in a different and more positive way as well. The areas of life in which it manifests also depends on how it is interacting with your natal astrology chart/blueprint.

Capricorn is the sign of ambition, career, duty, business, achievement, responsibility, discipline, mastery, and governance. It can be conservative, calculated, practical, orderly, realistic, authoritative, controlling, cautious, and worldly. It is a social climber and concerned with status. Capricorn energy can be serious, cold, and unrelenting.

This eclipse is occurring close to Saturn and Pluto which are also in the same sign. With Saturn being the ruler of Capricorn, it emphasizes some of the themes mentioned in the previous paragraph. It can also trigger issues connected to boundaries, restrictions, and structures.

Pluto’s energies also come into the equation and also amplifies some Capricorn themes. Its energy is powerful, transformative, deep, evolutionary, resourceful, and sexual.

It can also be obsessive, controlling, intense, manipulative, dark, destructive, and jealous. It rules over secrets, hidden matters, desires, the unconscious mind, and the underworld. It can also represent psychoanalysis, shadow selves, purging, death and rebirth. Some of these themes may come up from January 10th-11th or even around January 18th/19th.

Both Saturn and Pluto are real and serious energies. They can really emphasize ending, releasing, and constricting, especially with all of this energy occurring near the South Node in Capricorn.

Solar Eclipse Sextile Neptune, Jupiter Square Neptune

This Eclipse (with Saturn) is also in a harmonious sextile with Neptune which can help to ease some of the hard energy of Saturn and Pluto although its influence is more subtle. The shifts and developments reflected by this eclipse could play out through harmonizing ideals, spirituality, sensitivity, or compassion with our material goals or duties.

Jupiter in Sagittarius is moving towards a square with Neptune. This is one main astrological transits of this year and lasts until early fall. It peaks from January 8th-18th, and is also strong again in mid June and then in mid-late September.

At best this energy can be inspiring and compassionate. Expansive pursuits such as learning or travel may be based around beliefs, faith, spirituality, and creativity. This can be great for mystical experiences. However, it is a square which can easily bring the more challenging manifestations of this combination such as being unrealistic, lack of attention to detail, overly idealistic, or perhaps overindulging in escapist or intoxicating behaviour.

Uranus Going Direct, Mercury Square Mars, Venus Quincunx Uranus

Uranus is nearly stopped in the sky as it will be ending its retrograde which began in August and going forward again on January 6th. It entered Taurus in May and then returned to Aries where it is currently, and now will be on its way again to Taurus (enters early March) where it will stay until 2026.

During the weeks around when it changes motion, like it is currently, Uranus themes can come up strongly. There can be some surprises, liberating actions, or beginning to move forward in an innovative way. It can also manifest as shake ups, disruptions, separation, or rebellion. Globally, sometimes natural or man made disasters could occur when Uranus is highlighted.

Mercury recently entered Capricorn while in a square with Mars newly in Aries. Our communications and minds can be very energetic, productive, yet impulsive. We can move around a lot handling errands. However, conflicts, arguments, impatience, and competitiveness can also occur more easily. Ideas can be challenged and spoken word can be aggressive. This peaks January 7th-8th.

Venus is in a quincunx with Uranus which is strongest during this eclipse. Any of the Uranus energies (mentioned two paragraphs above) that manifest could have a challenging effect on relationships, money, aesthetics, or pleasures. Some adjustments may be required due to changes that come up. Venus is also in a trine with Chiron which can have a healing effect on relations or values, or perhaps people coming together that wouldn’t normally so.

Making Intentions And Things To Consider

What do you to need change when it comes to how you handle your duties, ambitions, or career? Have you been too limiting, serious, overworked, cautious, or calculated at the expense of emotional fulfillment or having a more joyous life? What attitudes, behaviors, obsessions, or types of actions do you need to change, transform, or purge so that you can truly expand? What aspects of your life do you need to be more realistic about?

These are just some examples of what to consider during this time. However, keep in mind that the energies of this eclipse will be a part of the backdrop over the next 6 months and some of the themes connected to this eclipse may not be as apparent yet.

If you wish to make any intentions, it is generally best to do so within the first 24 hours following the New Moon/Solar Eclipse. The exact time of it will be at 1:28am Universal Time on January 6th which is January 5th in the Americas. Click here to see what that is in your time zone.

Confusion can arise when trying to understand why millions of people still tune into mainstream media. Because of this, they (mainstream media) are still having a huge impact on the consciousness of those who watch and surf their platforms for information about what’s happening in our world.

That being said, many have come to the conclusion that mainstream media often does have an agenda, and will  push their own version of ‘fake news,’ while at the same time, labelling other narratives, perspectives and evidence as the real ‘fake news.’ What’s required in this time of confusion is doing our own research, and seeking independent media sources to better understand our world.

Are people even reading for information anymore? Or are they simply looking at headlines on the internet while watching T.V. news broadcasts? Are we seeing what fits our narratives as opposed to what’s challenging them?

The evidence that what we have been told by mainstream media is either false or lacking the full picture comes in the form of official declassified documentation, real world examples, and from multiple award winning mainstream media journalists who have committed the rest of their lives to letting people know how the media has deceived people.

Those who are participating in actions they know are deceptive to people and that does not create a better world are having a change of heart, and as a result they are speaking out. We are also seeing this with many soldiers returning from modern wars, realizing they themselves are tools of destruction rather than forces of peace.

Some Back Story

One person to speak out recently is NBC/MSNBC reporter William Arkin, a longtime and well-known military reporter who is best known for his groundbreaking, three-part Washington Post series in 2010. He co-reported it with two-time Pulitzer winner Dana Priest on how sprawling, unaccountable, and omnipotent the national security state has become in the post-9/11 era. This report dealt with black budget operations, programs that not even the commander in chief nor Congress has any idea about.

It is ironic that the U.S. should be fighting monstrously expensive wars allegedly to bring democracy to those countries, when it itself can no longer claim to be called a democracy when trillions, and I mean thousands of billions of dollars have been spent on projects which both congress and the commander in chief know nothing about. – Paul Hellyer, Former Canadian Defence Minister (source)

Their investigation lasted approximately two years and concluded that America’s classified world has “become so large, so unwieldy and so secretive that no one knows how much money it costs, how many people it employs, how many programs exist within it or exactly how many agencies do the same work.”

This was many years ago, and the latest developments with regards to these programs has come in the form of $21 trillion missing dollars from the Department of Defence, and the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Michigan State professor and Economist Mark Skidmore, along with former assistant secretary of Housing and Urban Development Catherine Austin Fitts found that this money was going towards black budget programs as well. Fitts has also been quite outspoken about a secret space program.

You can read more about that particular story here.

With regards to the report by Arkin,

When that three-part investigative series, titled “Top Secret America,” was published, I hailed it as one of the most important pieces of reporting of the war on terror, because while “we chirp endlessly about the Congress, the White House, the Supreme Court, the Democrats and Republicans, this is the Real U.S. Government:  functioning in total darkness, beyond elections and parties, so secret, vast and powerful that it evades the control or knowledge of any one person or even any organization.”(source)

This is one of many proofs of the Deep State. It’s been referenced by countless politicians and academics throughout history.

Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and  corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day. – Theodore Roosevelt

The most recent politicians to reference it were Syrian president Bashar Al-Assad, as well as Vladimir Putin. Western mainstream media will have you believe this narrative as being completely ‘fake,’ despite the fact that many western politicians themselves have also shared this perspective.

William Arkin Speaks Out Against NBC & MSNBC

Arkin recently blasted NBC News along with MSNBC news in an email for “becoming captive and subservient to the national security state, reflexively pro-war in the name of stopping President Donald Trump, and now the prime propaganda instrument of the War Machine’s promotion of militarism and imperialism.” This is something, based on my research, mainstream media has always been. It’s why they were created in the first place.

Arkin stated that, as a result of this, “the national security establishment not only hasn’t issued a beat but indeed has gained dangerous strength, and “is ever more autonomous and practically impervious to criticism.”

Another great quote comes to mind here,

“The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government, which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation . . .  The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both parties . . .  [and] control the majority of the newspapers and magazines in this country. They use the columns of these papers to club into submission or drive out of office public officials who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government. It operates under cover of a self-created screen [and] seizes our executive officers, legislative bodies, schools, courts, newspapers and every agency created for the public protection.”  (source)(source) – Mayor of New York City from 1918-1925

Arkin has worked with NBC and MSNBC since 2016, and it’s great to see that he’s leaving due to the fact that these outlets have become nothing but the “central propaganda arm of the CIA, the Pentagon, and the FBI. This network alone consists of former CIA, NSA and Pentagon officials as news analysts. MSNBC host and former Bush-Cheney Communications Director Nicole Wallace is one of multiple great examples.

Establishment Media Mouthpieces

MSNBC’s star national security reporter Ken Dilanian was widely mocked by media outlets for years for being an uncritical CIA stenographer before he became a beloved NBC/MSNBC reporter, and let’s not forget CNN’s Anderson Cooper’s connections to the CIA.

Operation Mockingbird, a CIA program to infiltrate mainstream media and use it to influence the minds of the masses decades ago, seems to be in full effect today, at a larger scale than anyone can possibly imagine.

In early 2018, NBC hired former CIA chief John Brennan to serve as a “senior national security and intelligence analyst.”

A declassified document from the CIA archives in the form of a letter from a CIA task force addressed to the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency details the close relationship that exists between the CIA and mainstream media and academia. The document states that the CIA task force “now has relationships with reporters from every major wire service, newspaper, news weekly, and television network in the nation,” and that “this has helped us turn some ‘intelligence failure’ stories into ‘intelligence success” stories,’ and has contributed to the accuracy of countless others.” Furthermore, it explains how the agency has “persuaded reporters to postpone, change, hold, or even scrap stories that could have adversely affected national security interests or jeopardized sources and methods.”

The Email

Again, all of this lead to Arkin publishing a critique of NBC and MSNBC in the form of an email he sent to multiple outlets, including the Intercept where I first came across this story.

You can read it in its entirety below.

My expertise, though seeming to be all the more central to the challenges and dangers we face, also seems to be less valued at the moment. And I find myself completely out of synch with the network, being neither a day-to-day reporter nor interested in the Trump circus. …

To me there is also a larger problem: though they produce nothing that resembles actual safety and security, the national security leaders and generals we have are allowed to do their thing unmolested. Despite being at “war,” no great wartime leaders or visionaries are emerging. There is not a soul in Washington who can say that they have won or stopped any conflict. And though there might be the beloved perfumed princes in the form of the Petraeus’ and Wes Clarks’, or the so-called warrior monks like Mattis and McMaster, we’ve had more than a generation of national security leaders who sadly and fraudulently have done little of consequence. And yet we (and others) embrace them, even the highly partisan formers who masquerade as “analysts”. We do so ignoring the empirical truth of what they have wrought: There is not one county in the Middle East that is safer today than it was 18 years ago. Indeed the world becomes ever more polarized and dangerous. …

Windrem again convinced me to return to NBC to join the new investigative unit in the early days of the 2016 presidential campaign. I thought that the mission was to break through the machine of perpetual war acceptance and conventional wisdom to challenge Hillary Clinton’s hawkishness. It was also an interesting moment at NBC because everyone was looking over their shoulder at Vice and other upstarts creeping up on the mainstream. But then Trump got elected and Investigations got sucked into the tweeting vortex, increasingly lost in a directionless adrenaline rush, the national security and political version of leading the broadcast with every snow storm. And I would assert that in many ways NBC just began emulating the national security state itself – busy and profitable. No wars won but the ball is kept in play.

I’d argue that under Trump, the national security establishment not only hasn’t missed a beat but indeed has gained dangerous strength. Now it is ever more autonomous and practically impervious to criticism. I’d also argue, ever so gingerly, that NBC has become somewhat lost in its own verve, proxies of boring moderation and conventional wisdom, defender of the government against Trump, cheerleader for open and subtle threat mongering, in love with procedure and protocol over all else (including results). I accept that there’s a lot to report here, but I’m more worried about how much we are missing. Hence my desire to take a step back and think why so little changes with regard to America’s wars. …

In our day-to-day whirlwind and hostage status as prisoners of Donald Trump, I think – like everyone else does – that we miss so much. People who don’t understand the medium, or the pressures, loudly opine that it’s corporate control or even worse, that it’s partisan. Sometimes I quip in response to friends on the outside (and to government sources) that if they mean by the word partisan that it is New Yorkers and Washingtonians against the rest of the country then they are right.

For me I realized how out of step I was when I looked at Trump’s various bumbling intuitions: his desire to improve relations with Russia, to denuclearize North Korea, to get out of the Middle East, to question why we are fighting in Africa, even in his attacks on the intelligence community and the FBI.  Of course he is an ignorant and incompetent impostor. And yet I’m alarmed at how quick NBC is to mechanically argue the contrary, to be in favor of policies that just spell more conflict and more war. Really? We shouldn’t get out Syria? We shouldn’t go for the bold move of denuclearizing the Korean peninsula?  Even on Russia, though we should be concerned about the brittleness of our democracy that it is so vulnerable to manipulation, do we really yearn for the Cold War? And don’t even get me started with the FBI: What? We now lionize this historically destructive institution?

Arkin has joined many others to blow the whistle on how all of this works, and how mainstream media as “become ground zero for these political pathologies of militarism and servitude to security state agencies.”

A Few More Examples

Dr. Udo Ulfkotte is a top German journalist and editor and has been for more than two decades. He went on the record stating that he was forced to publish the works of intelligence agents under his own name, also mentioning that noncompliance would result in him losing his job. Not long ago, he made an appearance on RT news Stating that:

“I’ve been a journalist for about 25 years, and I was educated to lie, to betray, and not to tell the truth to the public. But seeing right now within the last months how the German and American media tries to bring war to the people in Europe, to bring war to Russia — this is a point of no return and I’m going to stand up and say it is not right what I have done in the past, to manipulate people, to make propaganda against Russia, and it is not right what my colleagues do and have done in the past because they are bribed to betray the people, not only in Germany, all over Europe.” (source)

Here is a great TEDx talk from veteran investigative journalist and former CBS NEWS investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson. In it, she explains how “astroturf,” or fake grassroots movements, funded by political, corporate, or other special interests, are very effectively manipulating and distorting mainstream media messages, whether it be political or corporate.

Amber Lyon is a three time Emmy award winning journalist at CNN. She has gone on record stating that the mainstream media outlets are routinely paid by the US government as well as foreign governments to selectively report and distort information on certain events. She has also stated that the United States government has editorial control over mainstream media content.

Again, these are just a few examples out of many.

“The problem of fake news isn’t solved by hoping for a referee, but rather because we as citizens, we as users of these services, help each other. We talk and we share and we point out what is fake. We point out what is true. The answer to bad speech is not censorship, the answer to bad speech is more speech. We have to exercise and spread the idea that critical thinking matters, now more than ever, given the fact that lies seem to be getting more popular.”Edward Snowden (source)

The Takeaway

What’s happening on Earth right now is something that’s never happened before. There is an evolution happening, a gigantic shift in consciousness, and more people are starting to see what was well hidden before, and that’s the fact that what we are told about our world and events that take place on it are often highly manipulated and grounded in a state of consciousness tied to separation. More than ever we are questioning so much of what we hear, and never before have we been presented with so many examples to see just how far from ‘conspiracy theories’ these facts truly are.

It can be hard to wake up to the fact that the world is not how we’ve been told, or what we are taught, and we may wish to hold to cognitive dissonance, but ultimately, we are much more than what we’ve been made to believe. Only through questioning our current worldview will we realize this.

This grand ‘awakening’ does not only encompass waking up to deception and trickery, but also realizing that were are spiritual beings having a human experience, and there are plenty of experiences on Earth that our souls no longer desire to experience. We are ready to move on, take off the training wheels and fly. Transparency and truth are KEY elements in this awakening. Information is light, and without truth and transparency we can never really move forward and experience our full potential as human beings.  It’s an exciting time to be alive.

You’re being chased, but you’re not sure what or who is chasing you. It feels like there’s something truly malevolent behind your back. You better not look over your shoulder. Your legs are turning into jelly, your breathing is heavy. Or maybe you’re actually terribly late and it seems like you’ll never get to your destination, no matter how fast or how far your strides take you. You can’t really make any sense of what’s going on; you just know that stopping is not an option. So you run and you run and you run until your feet can carry you no more.

And then – a jolt.

Thankfully it was just a dream, but you’ll need time to shake off that feeling.

In fact, the dream of being pursued or chased is one of the most common dream themes – along with dreams or falling, sexual experiences, and all kinds of dreams regarding school and studying. Moreover, one study shows the theme of being chased as both the most prevalent dream among participants and the one most often reported as the earliest theme the participants recall from childhood.  

These common themes recur often in individuals, and they span across different cultures and geographical backgrounds. What could be standing behind this marvellous mystery of the human mind, and are we even looking at it from the right angle?

Unresolved problems

Dream theorists generally agree on the psychology-based interpretation of recurring dreams. Certain images, such as the image of being naked in a classroom or running through corridors, serve to contextualize powerful emotions or internal conflicts of the dreamer. Being naked, for example, is associated with feelings of shame and helplessness. Thus, the image could appear from your subconscious as you suppress these feelings in waking life.

This kind of explanation even feels intuitively right for many dreams you experience.

For example, you might often find yourself straight back in the classroom in your dreams, failing an exam, or trying to get out of trouble. And when you think about it, there’s plenty where that could come from. Perhaps you’re still not over the trauma of your school years and the childhood fear of the consequences you might face if you’re not good enough. Maybe you’re going through a stressful time and your subconscious habitually associates stress with the classroom, even though you finished school years ago.

These types of images and experiences from our childhood get buried in our minds so deeply that they become underlying themes in our adult lives, both when we’re awake and asleep. After all, that’s what psychoanalysis has been drilling for decades. However, assigning meaning to these images blurs the line between the mystical and the overly literal, and it’s often misguided.

Providing context

It’s crucial to understand that there can be no definitive answer – as in, a certain theme might be commonly interpreted to represent something, but our own experiences and personality will give it context. Carl Jung himself suggests that “dreams are doing the work of integrating our conscious and unconscious lives” in a process he calls ‘individuation.’ As such, they don’t need to be interpreted in order to perform their function.

A recurring dream could provide insight to a trauma or issue you need to resolve for the sake of your wellbeing and mental health. But in this quest to better understand ourselves and our subconscious, there are numerous factors standing between us and the clear-cut, cathartic dream interpretation we’d all like to have.

The way we approach our dreams

Looking at the phenomenon of sleep paralysis, we can clearly see how scientific explanations alone fail to provide answers for the mystical world of dream experiences. And the truth is, the same goes for all dreams and nightmares.

From psychology to physiological mechanisms in our sleep, there are many factors that shape our dream experiences. Hence, our perspective on it can’t be one-sided. For example, the commonly shared dream of teeth falling out can have a symbolic interpretation, like it may be connected to your fear of the dentist, or these types of dreams may occur more often among people with bruxism, which would factor in the physiological aspect.

The physiological aspect might sound painfully mundane for something as spiritual and mystical as the world of dreams. But we would miss out on so much if we were to underestimate it (or overestimate it!) because of its prosaicness. For example, each sleeping position impacts your sleep in a different way as pressure is put on different parts of your body and internal organs. Personally, I’ve found myself waking up from nightmares most often when I sleep on my left side. Doing my research, I was delighted to find that there are even studies pointing to the connection between left-side sleeping and terrifying dreams.

However, there’s one more extremely important aspect that’s too often overlooked: the cultural factor.

The shared nightmare

When we talk about the cultural factor, we can’t not mention the nightmare shared worldwide: The Hat Man.

The mysterious shadow with a hat has appeared to many people who have suffered episodes of sleep paralysis. Well, when I say he has appeared to them, I mean it in the broadest and most ambiguous sense. These terrifying episodes where the central figure is the man with a hat coming to harm you when you’re in your most vulnerable state definitely felt as real as anything to the dreamers. So real and gripping that one man haunted by the vision started a blog called The Hat Man Project after doing research and finding others also describing a similar figure during their experiences with sleep paralysis. The blog is now a space where others can share their experiences and thoughts on the terrifying figure.

How is it possible that all these people are dreaming the same taunting person? And if the state of sleep paralysis is like a portal to worlds that exists within our reality, is it really possible that the reality parallel to our own is such an ominous one?

One explanation simply suggests that people faced with the unfamiliar are going to look for the next culturally available explanation, even in their subconscious.

The state of being paralyzed in your sleep is, to say the least, unfamiliar. It’s an extremely vulnerable state where your natural instinct is to panic.

Evil spirits who sit on your chest as you sleep, as this phenomenon was portrayed in art centuries ago, is one viable explanation to craft in your psyche. The hat man, on the other hand, sounds a lot like Freddy Krueger. The Nightmare on Elm Street is a movie based on the experience of sleep paralysis, and Freddy was created as a symbolic representation of the terror. It doesn’t matter what came first, the chicken or the egg. The man with the hat has become very real in the minds of the dreamers.

So, where does that leave us? What is behind your recurring dreams and nightmares?

Most likely, a bit of all of the above, and perhaps something we haven’t even begun to grasp yet.

The Takeaway

The world of dreams is a realm we know so little about, and that’s exactly why our minds need to be open to all sorts of possibilities. If we want to understand our dreams and ourselves, we need to tune in to them and gather all the bits and pieces. If we dare to immerse ourselves, the unfamiliar might feel less terrifying. We could be opening the doors to new realities.

What are Terahertz waves? They’re the radiation that fills the spot between microwaves and infrared waves on the electromagnetic spectrum. These waves can pass through non-conducting materials like clothes, brick, wood, paper, etc. As a result, they can be utilized within cameras to look inside an enclosed structure, or sealed envelopes, into living rooms in order to “frisk” people at a distance.

It’s not just Terahertz waves, it’s multiple sources of electromagnetic radiation. In the past, there were no artificial sources of electromagnetic radiation. Now, we are bombarded with them. Cell phones, wifi, 5G and numerous other sources are all heavily present in our environment, and the corporations putting out this technology have not done any appropriate safety testing. The studies that have emerged about this subject are eye-opening and very concerning.

The statement below emphasizes my point, which comes from Dr. Sharon Goldberg, an internal medicine physician. Dr. Goldberg announced this at Michigan’s 5G Small Cell tower legislation hearing. You can watch that here.

Wireless radiation has biological effects. Period. This is no longer a subject for debate when you look at PubMed and the peer-review literature. These effects are seen in all life forms; plants, animals, insects, microbes. In humans, we have clear evidence of cancer now: there is no question. We have evidence of DNA damage, cardiomyopathy, which is the precursor of congestive heart failure, neuropsychiatric effects…

 Dr. Martin Blank, Ph.D., from the Department of Physiology and Cellular Biophysics at Colombia University, is one of the leading experts in this area of study. He explained:

Putting it bluntly they (EMFs) are damaging the living cells in our bodies and killing many of us prematurely. (source)

There are thousands of peer-reviewed studies on this subject, and hundreds of scientists have been petitioning the United Nations to pay attention. The problem is the industry and how they’ve taken over medical science. Information about harmful technological products that make a very small group of people billions of dollars every year is somehow brushed under the rug. Corporate control over science and government health regulators like the FDA and CDC is completely out of control.

In this article, I’d like to focus on research conducted by Boian S. Alexandrov et.al. at the Center for Nonlinear Studies at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico. It revealed that these Terahertz waves could “…unzip double-stranded DNA, creating bubbles that could significantly interfere with processes such as gene expression and DNA replication.”

This is concerning because Terahertz waves are used, as previously mentioned, to peer through things. Airport scanners are a perfect example. That does not mean that airport scanners can rip apart DNA, but it does suggest we need further testing on these instruments. These Terahertz waves are absorbed and emitted can also be used to determine the chemical composition of a material. Even though they don’t travel far inside the body, there is hope that the waves can be used to spot tumours near the surface of the skin.

The author of the study states,

With all the potential, it’s no wonder that research on terahertz waves has exploded in the last ten years or so.

He then asks the question,

But what of the health effects of terahertz waves?  At first glance, it’s easy to dismiss any notion that they can be damaging. Terahertz photons are not energetic enough to break chemical bonds or ionise atoms or molecules, the chief reasons why higher energy photons such as x-rays and UV rays are so bad for us. But could there be another mechanism at work?

Apparently, the evidence that Terahertz radiation (which is different from the wireless and other EMF radiation that’s put out by multiple devices) damages biological systems is mixed. Alexandrov outlines how some studies reported significant damage, while others showed none.

This is concerning, regardless of how many studies have shown no DNA damage. The fact is that there are studies that do show damage. Even if only one study proved that there could be DNA damage, it’s confusing as to why this technology would be approved.

Alexandrov and his team created a model to investigate how the fields interact with double-stranded DNA. What they found was remarkable.

They say that although the forces generated are tiny, resonant effects allow THz waves to unzip double-stranded DNA, creating bubbles in the double strand that could significantly interfere with processes such as gene expression and DNA replication. That’s a draw dropping conclusion.

It’s important to note that this particular study was a model, it wasn’t actually experimental. However, the team still presented enough information to suggest this technology could be dangerous to our health, especially given the hazardous biological effects of other waves on the electromagnetic spectrum.

This should set the cat among the pigeons. Of course, terahertz waves are a natural part of environment, just like visible and infrared light. But a new generation of cameras are set to appear that not only record terahertz waves but also bombard us with them. And if our exposure is set to increase, the question that urgently needs answering is what level of terahertz exposure is safe.

The last point made in the quote above is important to note. We’ve never been bombard this much — our exposure has never been so high.

North America also seems to be running behind, as multiple countries have completely banned wifi technology and cell phones in nursing homes and elementary schools because of the dangerous effects these technologies can have on our health.

It’s concerning that we are approving technology that use these types of waves when one of the only studies on this subject outlines how “research in this field has only just begun, both at home and abroad. In this paper, research progress with respect to THz radiation, including its biological effects, mechanisms and methods of protection, will be reviewed.” (source)

That paper goes on to emphasize that, although many biological effects are unknown, tremendous advancements in medical technology could come from their use. This wouldn’t be the first time we’ve seen potentially dangerous technologies being used in the healthcare system, such as mammograms.

Who knows! I guess we will have to wait and see until more research emerges. At the end of the day, a lot of technology and pharmaceuticals we use have not gone through appropriate safety testing, and so we may be seeing the same thing here.

If you want to see some of this science, the best place place to start your research is with the Environmental Health Trust.

You can fully access this particular study here.

The Takeaway

Although it’s unclear what will happen here, there is still so much electromagnetic radiation in our environment that it’s important to protect yourself. There are many things you can do to combat electromagnetic radiation. You can have a wired internet connection, unplug all of your devices before you sleep, purchase EMF protective clothing, and even paint your walls with EMF protective paint. You can live a healthy lifestyle, but I believe the mind body connection is so strong that anything can be mitigated through the deepest levels of healing.

The 9/11 truth movement has been active and persistent for over 17 years, and while mainstream media won’t touch the story, and while most Americans refuse to even consider the possibility that the attacks were an inside job, the actual evidence supporting controlled demolition theory is so convincing that a legitimate federal grand jury investigation will address this very question.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thousands of architects and engineers, pilots, security professionals, journalists and concerned citizens have been demanding that the federal government release the truth about the attacks, all noting that there is overwhelming circumstantial and scientific evidence proving that the World Trade Center towers, including building 7, were brought down by a pre-planned controlled demolition.

The evidence for this is exceptionally captivating, and The Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry has successfully submitted a petition to the federal government demanding that a grand jury consider this possibility. Finally, the U.S. Attorney has issued a response, agreeing to ‘comply with the law’ and open a grand jury investigation. This could mark the most substantial progress to date in the fight for 9/11 truth.

“The Lawyers’ Committee’s April 10th 52-page original Petition was accompanied by 57 exhibits and presented extensive evidence that explosives were used to destroy three WTC buildings. That evidence included independent scientific laboratory analysis of WTC dust samples showing the presence of high-tech explosives and/or incendiaries; numerous first-hand reports by First Responders of explosions at the WTC on 9/11; expert analysis of seismic evidence that explosions occurred at the WTC towers on 9/11 prior to the airplane impacts and prior to the building collapses; and expert analysis by architects, engineers, and scientists concluding that the rapid onset symmetrical near-free-fall acceleration collapse of three WTC high rise buildings on 9/11 exhibited the key characteristics of controlled demolition. The Lawyers’ Committee’s July 30th Amended Petition addresses several additional federal crimes beyond the federal bombing crime addressed in the original Petition. The Lawyers’ Committee concluded in the petitions that explosive and incendiary devices preplaced at the WTC were detonated causing the complete collapse of the WTC Twin Towers on 9/11 and increasing the tragic loss of life.” [Source]

This famous video of the free fall collapse of WTC building 7 has haunted the internet for years, demanding justice. In it, you can see a virtually unharmed building being brought down in a matter of seconds, exactly like a professional controlled building demolition.

The following interview with the founder of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth goes into great detail about the criminal nature of the cover up of the truth about these attacks.

Final Thoughts

Seventeen years after the worst terrorist attack in modern history, we may be finally seeing some official recognition that the official story is false and incomplete. Will the truth finally be revealed? Time will tell. While we wait, however, you can view the petition to the federal grand jury here.

“It’s no measure of health to be well-adjusted to a profoundly sick society.” ~Krishnamurti

How do we know that our society is profoundly sick?

1.) Our society pollutes the air it needs to breathe.

2.) Our society pollutes the water it needs to drink.

3.) Our society pollutes the food it needs to eat.

4.) Our society pollutes the minds it needs to evolve with.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Any system that forces its people to breathe polluted air, drink polluted water, eat polluted food and then continue to do all the things that causes that pollution is a profoundly sick society.

It is in this fundamental way that human wellbeing itself has become the enemy of the state. Statism only functions with unhealthy, divided individuals. It cannot continue if people are healthy and connected. In short: statism fails when enough people achieve a sense of wellbeing despite it.

So, if wellbeing is the enemy of the state, then it stands to reason that anyone seeking wellbeing is also an enemy of the state. Just as those seeking health, vitality and freedom do well to be maladjusted to a profoundly sick society, those seeking wellbeing do well to become enemies of the state.

Freedom is the enemy of the state:

“State is the name of the coldest of all cold monsters. Coldly it lies; and this lie slips from its mouth: ‘I, the state, am the people.’” ~Nietzsche

Have no illusions, the curtailment of human freedom is the state’s business. At every turn the Goliath of the state rears its ugly head, checking the free movement of otherwise free individuals. It’s a monstrous Hydra of overreaching power, hellbent on keeping its people controlled, corralled, and contained under the illusion of security and safety, and under the rampant delusion of law and order.

No nation-state on the planet is genuinely free. All are falsely and insincerely “free.” They are only ever “free” inside the unhealthy box of their conditions. Therefore, they are not free. True freedom is allowing the free movement of people and allowing people to govern themselves under the guidance of the golden rule and the nonaggression principle.

So what is a free-range human to do in the face of such a monstrosity? Become David against Goliath. Become Heracles against Hydra. Become a well-armed lamb contesting all votes. Become lionhearted despite all cowards.

But before that, you must check yourself. You must become free. If you are not free, then you cannot be heroic. You must be free in order to gain the type of courage necessary to become. Full stop.

The golden rule is the enemy of the state:

“Live simply so that others may simply live.” ~Gandhi

Statism is the antithesis of the golden rule. Why is this? Because the state demands that you do unto each other as the state demands. This is the opposite of the golden rule.

The state tricks you into believing that the state is the people. But the state is not the people. It’s the illusion of a people. People are made up of individuals. Individuality is predicated upon freedom. Further freedom is predicated upon individuals allowing other individuals to be free. The state doesn’t allow individuals to be free. It only gives individuals “permission” to be free upon certain conditions, which is the illusion of freedom.

If freedom is the foundation of the golden rule, then consent is its backbone. Without consent there is only rape. Lest we allow rape, consent is paramount.

It’s simple: The difference between robbery and a good trade is consent. The difference between murder and assisted death is consent. The difference between rape and a healthy sexual encounter is consent. The difference between oppression and freedom is consent. The difference between coercion and voluntarism is consent. Consent is everything.

If I don’t want to trade my dollar for your twinkie and you steal my dollar anyway, that’s robbery, because I did not consent. If I don’t want to have sex with you but you have sex with me anyway, that’s rape, because I did not consent. If I feel that your arbitrary law is immoral and you force me to follow it anyway, that’s oppression, because I did not consent. If I don’t want to give up my money to your arbitrary tax system but you force me to do so anyway, that’s coercion, because I did not give my consent.

In order to be a healthy, responsible, moral, and just human being, you must allow others to give their consent. Otherwise, you are violating the golden rule.

If your values are based upon violence being the solution to problems, then your values violate the golden rule. If your values are based upon hindering the freedom of others, then your values violate the golden rule. If your values are based upon coercing people to give you money when they haven’t consented, then your values violate the golden rule.

Bottom line: if your values are based upon violating the golden rule, then your values are immoral, unjust and unhealthy.

Nonviolence is the enemy of the state:

“An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.” But “When there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.” ~Gandhi

The state wants violent citizens so that it can control them. When people are nonviolent and compassionate toward each other the state doesn’t have an excuse to prevent freedom (though it will still make up excuses). When people are violent and intolerant toward each other the state has a reason to prevent freedom.

Nonviolence is the enemy of the state because the state’s solution to all problems is violence. When its citizenry comes up with nonviolent solutions it makes the state obsolete. But the state will always fight to maintain its overreaching power and control. So, in order not to become obsolete, it must maintain its violence.

The only thing that can prevent state violence is the people realizing that the state is not the people, and upon realizing this, choose to be nonviolent despite the violence of the state.

The flip side of this coin, however, is self-defense. The people must also wake up to the fact that they alone must defend themselves against violence. Whether that violence comes from an individual, a group of individuals, or from the state. The only time when violence is morally correct is in self-defense.

This can become a tricky psychological briar patch. But, basically, offensive violence is unhealthy and immoral (tyranny), whereas defensive violence is healthy and moral (justice). As Albert Camus said, “Absolute freedom mocks justice. Absolute justice denies freedom. To be fruitful, the two ideas must find their limits in each other.”

Peace is the enemy of the state:

“Never relinquish your ability to doubt, reflect, and consider other options –your rationality as an individual is your only protection against the madness that can overcome a group.” ~Robert Greene

If wellbeing, health, freedom, the golden rule, and nonviolence are all the enemy of the state, then what does that tell you?

Feel free to lose the wrestling match between your higher reasoning and your cognitive dissonance. I’ll wait here…

The bottom line is this: War is the only way any nation-state maintains itself. And yet love (peace, compassion, freedom, justice) is the only way humans can progressively evolve in a healthy way.

The state is always at war—with itself, with its citizens, with other states. There is no way out of its net of covert violence unless you leave it behind and become a free-range human. In order to be a lover of humanity one must become an enemy of the state.

The realization that in order to be a healthy, moral, and just human one must become an enemy of the state, is a tough pill to swallow. It’s not for the faint of heart. It will take counterintuitive reasoning to fully fathom it. It will require you to think outside of whatever box you’ve been conditioned to think inside of for most of your life. It will force you to unwash the brainwash. It will involve reprogramming your programming. It will demand that you question the profoundly sick society you were born into.

Most of all, it will require audacious courage in the face of comfortable cowardice. But, as Ralph Waldo Emerson wisely stated, “A man is to carry himself in the presence of all opposition. I ought to go upright and vital and speak the rude truth in all ways. Your goodness must have some edge to it—else it is none.”

In his first day in office, right wing Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro realized the fears of environmentalists and Indigenous communities. They knew he would use his time in office to increase the access of extractive industries in the Amazon Rainforest. Within hours of taking power Tuesday, Bolsonaro transferred responsibility for recognizing Indigenous lands to the ministry of agricultureThe New York Times reported.

The agriculture ministry has ties to the agribusiness lobby and other industries that would like to gain access to Indigenous lands, The Guardian and The New York Times reported.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

“There will be an increase in deforestation and violence against indigenous people,” executive coordinator of the Articulation of Indigenous People of Brazil (Apib) Dinaman Tuxá warned, according to The Guardian. “Indigenous people are defenders and protectors of the environment.”

Bolsonaro’s first move against Amazon protection: transferring indigenous reserve demarcation to agriculture ministry controlled by agribusiness lobby. Mine for @guardian https://t.co/YyQHeRL8vE

— Dom Phillips (@domphillips) January 2, 2019

Deforestation is already on the rise in Brazil, which saw its highest rate of tree clearing in a decade this past year. At the same time, during the last eight years the Brazilian government has reduced funding for Indigenous groups and prioritized the desires of industries that want greater access to the rainforest, The New York Times reported. The government has also slowed the pace at which it recognizes Indigenous lands in recent years.

Bolsonaro’s new order ups the ante by making the agriculture ministry responsible for the “identification, delimitation, demarcation and registration of lands traditionally occupied by indigenous people,” Reuters reported. It also gives that ministry control over the management of public forests and the Brazilian Forestry Service, which is in charge of sustainable forest use. The order will expire in 120 days if it is not ratified by Congress.

Bolsonaro defended his order on Twitter Wednesday.

“Less than a million people live in these isolated places in Brazil, where they are exploited and manipulated by NGOs,” Bolsonaro wrote, according to a translation provided by Reuters. “Let us together integrate these citizens and value all Brazilians.”

Mais de 15% do território nacional é demarcado como terra indígena e quilombolas. Menos de um milhão de pessoas vivem nestes lugares isolados do Brasil de verdade, exploradas e manipuladas por ONGs. Vamos juntos integrar estes cidadãos e valorizar a todos os brasileiros.

— Jair M. Bolsonaro (@jairbolsonaro) January 2, 2019

However, anthropologist Leila Sílvia Burger Sotto-Maior, who used to work for the country’s National Indian Foundation, which formerly oversaw the certification of protected lands, told The New York Times that the order was “a clear affront to the Constitution.”

Brazil’s 1988 Constitution was ratified after 21 years of military dictatorship, and attempted to enshrine protections for Indigenous communities and other marginalized groups after decades of oppression and exploitation. During the dictatorship, the government had seen Indigenous communities as a threat to economic opportunity and had tried to force them into the rest of Brazilian society, rather than recognizing their rights to live in their ancestral lands. The Constitution, in contrast, affirmed those rights.

“There’s fear, there’s pain,” Burger told The New York Times of the recent order. “This feels like defeat, failure.”

Bolsonaro also signed an order giving his government more power over NGOs, Reuters reported.

The order gives the office of the Government Secretary, Carlos Alberto Dos Santos Cruz, temporary power to “supervise, coordinate, monitor and accompany the activities and actions of international organizations and non-governmental organizations in the national territory,” Reuters reported.

What a time to be alive, isn’t it? Over the past few years, the birth of social media gave way to an explosion of information. Sure, some of it may be fake, but a lot of this ‘fake news’ narrative was created by the government and corporations in order to attack several alternative media websites. The ‘fake news’ problem cannot be solved by more censorship, it can only be solved through more information. Readers today need to start examining sources instead of just reading headlines. That being said, anything that goes against the narrative of the global elite, no matter how credible, is always demonized and ridiculed by mainstream media.

One topic that’s grabbed the attention of ‘conspiracy theorists’ is the idea that the Earth may be flat. Personally, I find this extremely hard to believe, given the fact that multiple whistleblowers have risked their lives to let the world know about what’s really happening in space. Our black budget world is extremely technologically advanced, and I encourage all ‘flat Earthers’ to look into the black budget when doing their research.

By suggesting the Earth is flat, one is saying that every single space agency from every single nation and all military pilots and astronauts are involved in some sort of cover-up. Those in support of the flat Earth theory believe that we’ve put no technology into space, that we’ve never received any pictures from space, and that all videos and photos from space agencies are fake. This is a significant issue within the flat Earth community. Instead of a proper rebuttal with factual evidence, many simply reply with, “It’s all fake.”

If you actually look at some of the points being made by the flat Earth community, there are some interesting arguments, and it’s been an ongoing debate for thousands of years. At the same time, there are some points that seem to be rather ghastly. For example, flat Earthers have argued that if you fly a helicopter 100 feet in the air, you should not land on the same spot because the globe is spinning. Believing that the Earth is flat implies that those who have claimed to voyage around the world are simply lying.

Then again, many of us still look to ancient wisdom for truths. If we look at different civilizations throughout history, including various indigenous cultures, they were said to have believed that the Earth was flat with a round dome around it … But did they really believe this? (We will cover that later on in the article.)

This interpretation is interesting because they seem to have depicted other celestial bodies and their movements quite accurately. And the ancients had many novel ideas about the shape of the Earth, in addition to it just being flat. The Babylonians thought the Earth was hollow to provide space for their underworld. The Egyptians thought the Earth was a square with mountains at the edge to support the vault of the sky.

I’m not going to go into the points made by the flat Earth community; instead, I’d like to present the perspective of Isaac Asimov, a writer and professor of biochemistry at Boston University. He was known for his works of science fiction and popular science. He was a legendary researcher within these fields, and had a large thirst for knowledge and information in all areas.

I came across an article written by him titled “The Relativity of Wrong,” published in The Skeptical Inquirer in fall of 1989. It was inspired by a handwritten letter he had received from an English literature major who, Asimov says, “felt he needed to teach me science.” What Asimov writes next shows you just how humble and ‘awake’ he was.

I sighed a bit, for I knew very few English Lit majors who are equipped to teach me science, but I am very aware of the vast state of my ignorance and I am prepared to learn as much as I can from anyone, so I read on….The young specialist in English Lit, having quoted me, went on to lecture me severely on the fact that in every century people have thought they understood the universe at last, and in every century they were proved to be wrong. It follows that the one thing we can say about our modern “knowledge” is that it is wrong. The young man then quoted with approval what Socrates had said on learning that the Delphic oracle had proclaimed him the wisest man in Greece. “If I am the wisest man,” said Socrates, “it is because I alone know that I know nothing.” the implication was that I was very foolish because I was under the impression I knew a great deal.

Asimov then brings up the flat Earth theory in response to the letter, stating that, “When people thought the Earth was flat, they were wrong. When people thought the Earth was spherical, they were wrong. But if you think that thinking the Earth is spherical is just as wrong as thinking the Earth is flat, then your view is wronger than both of them put together.”

I was very intrigued by that statement as well as the next where he emphasizes that people think “right” and “wrong” are absolute, and that everything that isn’t perfectly and completely right is totally and equally wrong.

In the early days, most people thought the Earth was flat. It wasn’t because they were stupid, Asimov explains, or because they wanted to believe in silly things. They were simply interpreting the world around them with the knowledge they had.

He mentions that today, we are taught that the flat Earth theory is entirely wrong, but he emphasizes how it actually isn’t.

Another way of looking at it is to ask what is the “curvature” of the earth’s surface. Over a considerable length, how much does the surface deviate (on the average) from perfect flatness. The flat-earth theory would make it seem that the surface doesn’t deviate from flatness at all, that its curvature is 0 to the mile. Nowadays, of course, we are taught that the flat-earth theory is wrong; that it is all wrong, terribly wrong, absolutely. But it isn’t. The curvature of the earth is nearly 0 per mile, so that although the flat-earth theory is wrong, it happens to be nearly right. That’s why the theory lasted so long.

How interesting is that? I did not know that the curvature of the Earth is nearly 0 per mile. That explains a lot, including why we cannot perceive Earth as a round figure from the ground nor from a plane. To see that kind of curvature, you would have to be higher than any commercial air-liner is capable of going. Given the size of the Earth, you would have to be very high up in our atmosphere to see any curvature.

In ancient Greece, there were flat Earth supporters, but it became an unsatisfactory theory at approximately 350 B.C.. Aristotle shared his belief that the Earth is not flat by noticing certain stars disappearing beyond the Southern Hemisphere when travelling north, and beyond the Northern Hemisphere when travelling south. He also used the Earth’s shadow on the moon during a lunar eclipse as a reference, given the fact that it’s always shaped in the arc of a circle. Furthermore, ships disappearing beyond the horizon hull in any direction they travel.

All three observations could not be reasonably explained if the Earth’s surface is flat, but could be explained by assuming the Earth is a sphere.

It’s also interesting to note that many philosophers, like Socrates, a pupil of Aristotle, opposed the aristocracy and the religion they were ushering in. As a result, they formed secret societies to study and gain knowledge and information. Those who were caught were vilified by the aristocracy, which is why Socrates was put do death, for questioning the authority, their view of the world and for “corrupting the youth.”

A century later, a Greek philosopher used the sun as an example to argue the spherical perception, pointing to the fact that the sun casts a shadow of different lengths at different latitudes. Asimov states that “all the shadows would be the same length if the Earth’s surface were flat. Eratosthenes calculated the size of the Earthly sphere from the difference in shadow length, and his calculations turned out to be 25,000 in circumference — exactly what it is today. How astonishing is that?

The curvature of such a sphere is about 0.000126 per mile, a quantity very close to 0 per mile, as you can see, and one not easily measured by the techniques at the disposal of the ancients. The tiny difference between 0 and 0.000126 accounts for the fact that it took so long to pass from the flat earth to the spherical earth. Mind you, even a tiny difference, such as that between 0 and 0.000126, can be extremely important. That difference mounts up. The earth cannot be mapped over large areas with any accuracy at all if the difference isn’t taken into account and if the earth isn’t considered a sphere rather than a flat surface. Long ocean voyages can’t be undertaken with any reasonable way of locating one’s own position in the ocean unless the earth is considered spherical rather than flat. Furthermore, the flat earth presupposes the possibility of an infinite earth, or of the existence of an “end” to the surface. The spherical earth, however, postulates an earth that is both endless and yet finite, and it is the latter postulate that is consistent with all later findings.

“Although the flat Earth theory holds some truths within it, all things considered, it should still be discarded in favor of the spherical-earth theory. But is the Earth really a sphere?”

It turns out, the Earth is not a sphere because it does not have the mathematical properties of a sphere. Several diameters differ in length. If it were a sphere, the Earth would require the following:

No, it is not a sphere; not in the strict mathematical sense. A sphere has certain mathematical properties – for instance, all diameters (that is, all straight lines that pass from one point on its surface, through the center, to another point on its surface) have the same length. It definitely looks like one to the naked eye, as do all of the other planets.

I’m going to post the rest of Asimov’s article below. What’s really interesting is that he notes the Earth is flattened in some areas.

What gave people the notion the earth wasn’t a true sphere? To begin with, the sun and the moon have outlines that are perfect circles within the limits of measurement in the early days of the telescope. This is consistent with the supposition that the sun and the moon are perfectly spherical in shape.

However, when Jupiter and Saturn were observed by the first telescopic observers, it became quickly apparent that the outlines of those planets were not circles, but distinct ellipses. That meant that Jupiter and Saturn were not true spheres.

Isaac Newton, toward the end of the seventeenth century, showed that a massive body would form a sphere under the pull of gravitational forces (exactly as Aristotle had argued), but only if it were not rotating. If it were rotating, a centrifugal effect would be set up that would lift the body’s substance against gravity, and this effect would be greater the closer to the equator you progressed. The effect would also be greater the more rapidly a spherical object rotated, and Jupiter and Saturn rotated very rapidly indeed.

The earth rotated much more slowly than Jupiter or Saturn so the effect should be smaller, but it should still be there. Actual measurements of the curvature of the earth were carried out in the eighteenth century and Newton was proved correct.

The earth has an equatorial bulge, in other words. It is flattened at the poles. It is an “oblate spheroid” rather than a sphere. This means that the various diameters of the earth differ in length. The longest diameters are any of those that stretch from one point on the equator to an opposite point on the equator. This “equatorial diameter” is 12,755 kilometers (7,927 miles). The shortest diameter is from the North Pole to the South Pole and this “polar diameter” is 12,711 kilometers (7,900 miles).

The difference between the longest and shortest diameters is 44 kilometers (27 miles), and that means that the “oblateness” of the earth (its departure from true sphericity) is 44/12755, or 0.0034. This amounts to l/3 of 1 percent.

To put it another way, on a flat surface, curvature is 0 per mile everywhere. On the earth’s spherical surface, curvature is 0.000126 per mile everywhere (or 8 inches per mile). On the earth’s oblate spheroidal surface, the curvature varies from 7.973 inches to the mile to 8.027 inches to the mile.

The correction in going from spherical to oblate spheroidal is much smaller than going from flat to spherical. Therefore, although the notion of the earth as a sphere is wrong, strictly speaking, it is not as wrong as the notion of the earth as flat.

Even the oblate-spheroidal notion of the earth is wrong, strictly speaking. In 1958, when the satellite Vanguard I was put into orbit about the earth, it was able to measure the local gravitational pull of the earth–and therefore its shape–with unprecedented precision. It turned out that the equatorial bulge south of the equator was slightly bulgier than the bulge north of the equator, and that the South Pole sea level was slightly nearer the center of the earth than the North Pole sea level was.

There seemed no other way of describing this than by saying the earth was pear-shaped, and at once many people decided that the earth was nothing like a sphere but was shaped like a Bartlett pear dangling in space. Actually, the pear-like deviation from oblate-spheroid perfect was a matter of yards rather than miles, and the adjustment of curvature was in the millionths of an inch per mile.

In short, my English Lit friend, living in a mental world of absolute rights and wrongs, may be imagining that because all theories are wrong, the earth may be thought spherical now, but cubical next century, and a hollow icosahedron the next, and a doughnut shape the one after.

What actually happens is that once scientists get hold of a good concept they gradually refine and extend it with greater and greater subtlety as their instruments of measurement improve. Theories are not so much wrong as incomplete.

This can be pointed out in many cases other than just the shape of the earth. Even when a new theory seems to represent a revolution, it usually arises out of small refinements. If something more than a small refinement were needed, then the old theory would never have endured.

Copernicus switched from an earth-centered planetary system to a sun-centered one. In doing so, he switched from something that was obvious to something that was apparently ridiculous. However, it was a matter of finding better ways of calculating the motion of the planets in the sky, and eventually the geocentric theory was just left behind. It was precisely because the old theory gave results that were fairly good by the measurement standards of the time that kept it in being so long.

Again, it is because the geological formations of the earth change so slowly and the living things upon it evolve so slowly that it seemed reasonable at first to suppose that there was no change and that the earth and life always existed as they do today. If that were so, it would make no difference whether the earth and life were billions of years old or thousands. Thousands were easier to grasp.

But when careful observation showed that the earth and life were changing at a rate that was very tiny but not zero, then it became clear that the earth and life had to be very old. Modern geology came into being, and so did the notion of biological evolution.

If the rate of change were more rapid, geology and evolution would have reached their modern state in ancient times. It is only because the difference between the rate of change in a static universe and the rate of change in an evolutionary one is that between zero and very nearly zero that the creationists can continue propagating their folly.

Since the refinements in theory grow smaller and smaller, even quite ancient theories must have been sufficiently right to allow advances to be made; advances that were not wiped out by subsequent refinements.

The Greeks introduced the notion of latitude and longitude, for instance, and made reasonable maps of the Mediterranean basin even without taking sphericity into account, and we still use latitude and longitude today.

The Sumerians were probably the first to establish the principle that planetary movements in the sky exhibit regularity and can be predicted, and they proceeded to work out ways of doing so even though they assumed the earth to be the center of the universe. Their measurements have been enormously refined but the principle remains.

Naturally, the theories we now have might be considered wrong in the simplistic sense of my English Lit correspondent, but in a much truer and subtler sense, they need only be considered incomplete.

Were the ancients who believed the Earth is flat speaking from a spiritual/dimensional perspective?

A lot of flat Earth supporters point to the fact that many ancient cultures believed the Earth was flat, and they’re correct. But not all cultures agreed on this, and those who believed it was flat may have been speaking about the spiritual realms. Take the Maya, for example, they had a flat depiction of the Earth with a circular dome around it. Perhaps looking at it from another dimension, one would see it as flat?

A study published in the Journal of Social Archaeology makes my point more clear.

The (super) natural world of the ancient Maya was complex and multi-dimensional. It included three layers: a heaven with 13 levels, the surface or earth, and the underworld with nine levels (Schele and Freidel, 1990: 67). The world in which the Maya lived floated on a primordial sea, often represented as the back of a crocodile or turtle. Also important in orientating their daily lives were the cardinal directions; each direction has its own suite of representative and asssociated elements – birds, trees, colors, and deities. (source)

This is a huge problem with the modern interpretation of ancient depictions of the Earth. If we look at the Anishinaabe, who make up multiple indigenous groups in Canada, their creation legends tell a story of Earth on a turtle’s back who is floating in a sea of water. This interpretation has been taken by flat Earthers and used as such. You will find multiple pictures around the internet like the one below, but they are not a true representation, and they don’t come from any credible sources.

What does the creation legend really say? And how is it really depicted? Well, the legends clearly suggest that the Earth is a ball. You can read their entire creation story here. The ball is being carried on the turtles back.

This story is known as the creation of Turtle Island (Earth), and below is a real depiction of the creation myths. See sourceAs you can see, Earth is enclosed within the back as a ball, along with the cosmos kept inside another outer shell. This is our physical domain.

It’s interesting to note that the Anishinaabe have models of creation that’ve been depicted elsewhere. As you can see below, this could easily be interpreted as a flat Earth model, despite the fact that the story of creation clearly states a round ball. This is why I believe these are spiritual realms. The model below is also seen throughout many cultures, and has been interpreted as a flat Earth model. Again, as we can see from above, that’s not true. The picture below is also from the same indigenous group.  Now, look at the next picture.

Here is another depiction from the Mohawk, another indigenous group found in Canada. As you can see, spheres are used still in the realm of the flat surface with the dome around it. Again, this is a common depiction by flat Earthers, who believe the Earth is flat with a dome around it that encompasses the sun, moon and stars. This is why I believe this model is a depiction of the spiritual realms, not our physical realm. The dome is perhaps covering all of physical reality as we know it, not the Earth.

This type of model is also similar to other artworks depicting some sort of dome around the Earth. Below is a painting by Hieronymus Bosch, a Dutch/Netherlandish draughtsman and painter from Brabant. He is one of the most notable representatives of the Early Netherlandish painting school. It was a picture presented to the Pope by Leonardo DiCaprio, stating that when he was younger he did not know what it meant, but does now. I found that interesting and still don’t know what that means. (source)

Is this also a metaphorical painting, like the depictions above, taken as physically literal?

American analytic philosopher and Christian theologian Dr. William Lane Craig was asked:

Recently, I have noticed, is the huge amount of Christians who are popping up along the Internet, claiming the Bible supports the flat earth theory. They theorize that the world is flat, with a dome, or firmament above it, supported by pillars. They also say the stars reside in the “dome”. They use verses such as Job 37:18, 38:13, Psalm 96, 1 Chronicles 16:30, Genesis 1 and 2, and 1 Samuel 2:8. I have searched for answers, and I have found some, but I would like to hear some answers from you, as well. Thank you in advance.

His response:

I suspect what’s going on here is internet infidels masquerading as Christians in a misguided attempt to make the Bible look silly. These people have no understanding of literary interpretation or literary genre. I have seen one person even claim that when the Bible uses such figures of speech as “the four corners of the Earth” it asserts that the Earth is a square! Imposing such wooden literalism on even modern parlance would make all of us Flat Earthers as well!

I suggest you listen to or read my Defenders lectures (Series 2, Section 9) on Creation and Evolution, parts 9-12. There I discuss ancient creation stories such as ancient Egyptian creation myths and ask whether ancient peoples understood these literally. I think it’s evident that they did not. These accounts are often metaphorical or symbolic, and ancient people would have been quite surprised if one of these modern literalists were to confront them with the claim

The list of examples go on, but those who use indigenous examples portraying that the earth is flat should look deeper into the subject, especially if they believe most of the proof for round Earth today is completely fake.

We can see this with the indigenous examples above as well.

A lot of flat Earth lore gets into religion, especially Christianity. It is said that as Christianity became more popular, all of the ancient teachings were taken and stored by the church, which are now allegedly in the Vatican. It’s crucial that we do not confuse scientific texts with religious texts, especially when it comes to trying to further understand this planet.

It’s important to note that many flat Earth supporters believe the Earth is at the center of the universe. Those who challenged this view were killed and condemned by the church, like Galileo Galilei.

The Takeaway

When it comes to this topic, the truth is that you cannot prove the Earth is flat. Though many flat Earth supporters refuse to accept it, there is substantial evidence in support of the Earth being round including photos, the technology we’ve sent into space, and the points listed above.

Please note that I have not presented many of the points in support of the flat Earth theory, this is simply a discussion and a presentation of other works and beliefs that support a spherical model. I do believe we’ve travelled amongst the stars for several reasons, and given all of the information I’ve reviewed on quantum mechanics, the flat Earth theory does not seem plausible. Furthermore, we can see out into space with the technology we’ve developed, and we can see the other planets with a telescope, which are all round.

At the end of the day, there are so many more important issues surrounding the planet than arguing over what the shape of the Earth is. We need to clean up our planet, introduce clean energy technology, and provide everyone with their basic needs. And although we have made some progress, we still have a lot to do and a lot to fix. If anything, the flat Earth theory seems like a distraction from what matters most.

At the end of the day, if you really want to know. Travel to the end of flat Earth and see for yourself, or simply take a telescope and view the ice wall that supposedly surrounds it, as well as every other major city in the world. You should be able to see it.

I believe it’s also important to mention Pic Gaspard, a 443 Km landscape photograph and a world record of Earth. Given the curvature per mile, that pic also posits a round Earth, in my opinion.

Congratulations to Tarrytown, New York residents, state and local officials for teaming up to demand the removal of a cell tower installed 3 months ago just feet away from a public housing complex’s playground.

Although the 150-foot cell tower is on MTA-owned land, that land abuts Franklin Court, a public housing complex in the village. A Franklin Court playground lies directly on the other side of the boundary fence between the complex and the MTA land.

 

“There was so much outrage by the folks in town,” Hanover said. “Those (MTA) guys are probably getting triple overtime to take it down.”

 

Hanover lives with his wife, Nancy, on Park Avenue, which overlooks the land the cell tower is on. Nancy Hanover said the top of the cell tower is the only thing that can be seen from the couple’s kitchen window.

“It’s head high,” she said. “Nobody lives head high with a cell tower beaming through their head.”

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

There are actually thousands of studies that have already proven that exposure to cell tower radiation is harmful.  It’s also not just about cancer risk.  Animals are affected by exposure too.  Since 2004, the International Association of Firefighters (IAFF) has opposed to use of their stations for cell towers and antennas until it can be proven that exposure isn’t harmful.  Insurance companies aren’t covering wireless radiation exposure anymore because it’s too risky.

Recently residents of Burlington, Vermont stopped Verizon from installing harmful 5G small cell towers throughout their community despite federal legislation.  Washington DC Neighborhood Advisory Commissions has also filed formal opposition to 5G small cell towers due to health and environmental concerns.

Unfortunately, there are still doctors, scientists, government agencies, and organizations turning a blind eye to decades of research proving harm including the American Cancer Society who is referenced in this article.  ACS also receives funding from wireless companies.  Go figure.

In a spectacular few days for solar system exploration – during which NASA whizzed the New Horizons spacecraft past the Kuiper Belt object 2009 MU69 (somewhat controversially nicknamed “Ultima Thule”) and eased OSIRIS-REx into orbit about the asteroid Bennu – the Chinese National Space Administration (CNSA) has set its Chang’e 4 lander and rover down on the far side of the moon.

Chang’e is the name of the Chinese moon goddess – and Chang’e 4 builds on the success of the Chang’e 3 lander, which touched down on the moon in December 2013.

This new landing is far from being a mundane event. Only the US and the Soviet Union have ever landed spacecraft on the moon before. Those were either steered by humans onboad or, if uncrewed, relied on luck for a safe landing. Chang’e 4 used a downward-looking camera and hazard avoidance software to steer itself to a flat and sufficiently boulder-free landing spot, as it slowed its descent using retrorockets – an impressive technological feat.

Crucially, any spacecraft on the lunar far side cannot “see” the Earth, and so it can neither send to nor receive a radio signal from its control centre on Earth. To circumvent this problem, CNSA placed a relay satellite in a cunning “halo orbit” around a point in space sufficiently far beyond the moon that it can always see both the lunar far side and the Earth above the lunar horizon. The relay satellite is called Queqiao, which means “Magpie Bridge”, recalling a bridge formed by birds across the Milky Way in Chinese mythology.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Chang’e 4’s descent to the lunar surface.

This is the first time ever that anyone has landed a probe on the far side of the moon. That side sees just as much sunlight as the Earth-facing side of the moon, so is not literally a “dark side”, as it is often casually called. However, it is metaphorically dark, in that the moon’s rotation acts to keep that side facing away from the Earth as it progresses round its orbit, and its nature was unknown before the space age.

How the moon keeps the same face towards the Earth all the time.

The far side of the moon differs from the near side in having far less area covered by dark lava flows (the lunar maria or “seas”). There is also a 2,500km wide depression known as the South Pole-Aitken (SPA) basin occupying much of the southern part of the far side. This is probably the scar of a very ancient impact – and because it is about 8km deep it provides a window through the moon’s crust and into the mantle that underlies it. It is special in that it never became flooded by lava like the large impact basins on the near side.

The chosen landing site, Von Karman crater, is in the north of the SPA basin about halfway between the south pole and the equator, and punches a little deeper than the surrounding basin floor. This gives the rover the best possible chance of locating rocks that originated from deeper inside the moon than have been analysed before – offering a chance to learn more about how the satellite formed.

There is some lava on the floor of Von Karman (which is what makes it a smooth, and hence fairly safe, place to land), however, but the rover will probably not have to travel far to find some lumps of rock redistributed from the exposed floor of the SPA by later, smaller, impacts. A few candidates can be seen in the first image from the surface.

Scientific Measurements

The solar powered six-wheeled rover is only 140kg, and measures 1.5 metres in its longest dimension. Its nominal lifetime is three months, but with luck it may keep going for more than a year. Its science instruments are a camera, a ground-penetrating radar (to measure the depth and physical state of the lunar regolith or “soil”), an imaging spectrometerthat will give some information on the mineralogy of the rocks and regolith, and a Swedish instrument to look at how the solar wind interacts with the surface.

This science payload is relatively modest, and doesn’t take best advantage of being inside the SPA basin. But just landing on the far side is nevertheless a notable milestone. China’s next step will probably be Chang’e 5, a mission to bring samples back to Earth from a region of apparently young lavas on the near side.

Measuring their age by laboratory techniques on Earth will provide an important piece for the jigsaw of lunar chronology, which is missing because these have never been sampled. Bizarrely, this was originally scheduled to happen before Chang’e 4, but was delayed by problems with the heavy-lift Long March 5 rocket.

China’s further steps in lunar exploration will clearly include a crewed landing, probably within five to ten years. In partial preparation for this, the static part of the Chang’e 4 lander includes a 3kg sealed biosphere within which potato seeds and silkworm eggs will be encouraged to germinate and hatch. This could help unveil whether the carbon dioxide exhaled from the larvae can be balanced by the amount taken up by the seedlings during photosynthesis.

Ultimately, that’s one small small step towards a sustainable closed ecosystem on the moon.

This year will mark the 19th anniversary of 9/11, a tragic event that will be remembered throughout history, and one that’s often considered responsible for the ‘waking up’ of millions of people. Though 9/11 was incredibly heartbreaking, it ultimately served a purpose, similar to how the false flag chemical attacks in Syria served a purpose.

These events allowed so many people to become aware of all the lies and manipulation that occur within our government. They helped us understand the connections that the Western military alliance and intelligence agencies have with these so-called terrorist organizations, as many academics and politicians have directly accused the Western military alliance of creating groups like ISIS and Al-Qaeda through fake video campaigns, funding, and providing weapons in order to prolong the ‘war on terror.’

Politicians like Vladimir Putin have accused the West of hiring paid mercenaries to make up these terrorist groups because their presence gives our government justification to infiltrate other countries for various reasons including resource extraction and the destabilization of governments. This has been a common theme since World War II, as we’ve witnessed numerous false flag terrorist attacks such as 9/11, which was allegedly created by the US in order to justify their invasion of Iraq and other parts of the Middle East in search of “weapons of mass destruction.”

That being said, there are many people who avoid discussing the ‘why’ behind these events, and instead have investigated what physically happened on that day.

The Science Does NOT Support The Official Story of 9/11

Thousands of architects and engineers have been investigating what happened on 9/11 for years, and their conclusions match that of the majority of the American people: What we were told by the government regarding 9/11 was a complete lie. There have been multiple studies published in peer-reviewed engineering and physics journals concluding that all three towers were brought down by controlled demolition (see below). Even the president of the United States, Donald Trump, has stated that 9/11 was a controlled demolition, which is something a ‘Deep State‘ president would likely never do. Let’s not forget about the Pentagon, where there was absolutely no footage and no plane wreckage to confirm the story.

For years, hundreds of thousands of people have been calling upon the US government to investigate 9/11, and now progress is finally being made. On April 10th of this year, the non-profit Lawyers Committee for 9/11 Inquiry filed a petition with the U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York, Manhattan, requesting that he present to a grand jury the extensive evidence of federal crimes relating to the destruction of three World Trade Center high rises on 9/11. The petition cited conclusive evidence, providing proof of explosives and incendiaries employed at ground zero to bring down the twin towers as well as the WTC building #7.

The Lawyers’ Committee’s April 10th 52-page original Petition was accompanied by 57 exhibits and presented extensive evidence that explosives were used to destroy three WTC buildings. That evidence included independent scientific laboratory analysis of WTC dust samples showing the presence of high-tech explosives and/or incendiaries; numerous first-hand reports by First Responders of explosions at the WTC on 9/11; expert analysis of seismic evidence that explosions occurred at the WTC towers on 9/11 prior to the airplane impacts and prior to the building collapses; and expert analysis by architects, engineers, and scientists concluding that the rapid onset symmetrical near-free-fall acceleration collapse of three WTC high rise buildings on 9/11 exhibited the key characteristics of controlled demolition. The Lawyers’ Committee’s July 30th Amended Petition addresses several additional federal crimes beyond the federal bombing crime addressed in the original Petition. The Lawyers’ Committee concluded in the petitions that explosive and incendiary devices preplaced at the WTC were detonated causing the complete collapse of the WTC Twin Towers on 9/11 and increasing the tragic loss of life.

The attorney will have assistance from the Lawyers’ Committee with presenting the evidence to the special grand jury, and they requested that Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth provide support in making a joint presentation. They are also calling upon the public and legal community to contact them and support them in their efforts to contribute to this grand jury process.

Attorney William Jacoby, Lawyers’ Committee Board Member, stated: “We call upon the public and legal community to contact us and support our efforts to contribute to this grand jury process and to monitor and ensure compliance by the Justice Department.”

Executive Director and Actor Ed Asner stated: “The U.S. Attorney’s decision to comply with the Special Grand Jury Statute regarding our petitions is an important step towards greater transparency and accountability regarding the tragic events of 9/11.”

The Takeaway

There’s so much evidence in support of 9/11 being an inside job, yet it’s still brushed off as a ‘conspiracy theory’ by many. Despite the mainstream narrative, so many people have come forward to share their truth regarding what happened that day including academics, scientists, architects, and engineers. Even family members of multiple victims and firefighters who were in the building that day have spoken out, yet somehow all of these statements have gone completely ignored by the US government. Perhaps in Trump’s presidency, things will change, and an investigation will take place?

That being said, does it need to? It seems more and more people are becoming aware of what really happened that day. The war on terror was fabricated, and many events such as 9/11 were created to make it seem real only so the global elite could justify the invasion of other countries and create a heightened state of security at home. But the fact that people are beginning to see this means we’re creating a massive shift in perception, which will eventually spark real action. This is what we’ve been seeing for the past 10 years, and it’s accelerating every day. The world is waking up, and the information is here for those brave enough to open their eyes.

A journalist with NBC has resigned from the network with a statement which highlights the immense resistance that ostensibly liberal mass media outlets have to antiwar narratives, skepticism of US military agendas, and any movement in the opposite direction of endless military expansionism.

January 4 is my last day at NBC News and I’d like to say goodbye to my friends, hopefully not for good,” begins an email titled ‘My goodbye letter to NBC’ sent to various contacts by William M Arkin, an award-winning journalist who has been associated with the network for 30 years.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

“This isn’t the first time I’ve left NBC, but this time the parting is more bittersweet, the world and the state of journalism in tandem crisis,” the email continues. “My expertise, though seeming to be all the more central to the challenges and dangers we face, also seems to be less valued at the moment. And I find myself completely out of synch with the network, being neither a day-to-day reporter nor interested in the Trump circus.”

The lengthy email covers details about Arkin’s relationship with NBC and its staff, his opinions about the mainstream media’s refusal to adequately scrutinize and criticize the US war machine’s spectacular failures in the Middle East, how he “argued endlessly with MSNBC about all things national security for years”, the fact that his position as a civilian military analyst was unusual and “peculiar” in a media environment where that role is normally dominated by “THE GENERALS and former government officials,” and how he was “one of the few to report that there weren’t any WMD in Iraq” and remembers “fondly presenting that conclusion to an incredulous NBC editorial board.”

“A scholar at heart, I also found myself an often lone voice that was anti-nuclear and even anti-military, anti-military for me meaning opinionated but also highly knowledgeable, somewhat akin to a movie critic, loving my subject but also not shy about making judgements regarding the flops and the losers,” he writes.

Arkin makes clear that NBC is in no way the sole mass media offender in its refusal to question or criticize the normalization of endless warfare, but that he feels increasingly “out of sync” and “out of step” with the network’s unhesitating advancement of military interventionist narratives. He writes about how Robert Windrem, NBC News’ chief investigative producer, convinced him to join a new investigative unit in the early days of the 2016 presidential race. Arkin writes the following about his experience with the unit:

“I thought that the mission was to break through the machine of perpetual war acceptance and conventional wisdom to challenge Hillary Clinton’s hawkishness. It was also an interesting moment at NBC because everyone was looking over their shoulder at Vice and other upstarts creeping up on the mainstream. But then Trump got elected and Investigations got sucked into the tweeting vortex, increasingly lost in a directionless adrenaline rush, the national security and political version of leading the broadcast with every snow storm. And I would assert that in many ways NBC just began emulating the national security state itself – busy and profitable. No wars won but the ball is kept in play.

 

“I’d argue that under Trump, the national security establishment not only hasn’t missed a beat but indeed has gained dangerous strength. Now it is ever more autonomous and practically impervious to criticism. I’d also argue, ever so gingerly, that NBC has become somewhat lost in its own verve, proxies of boring moderation and conventional wisdom, defender of the government against Trump, cheerleader for open and subtle threat mongering, in love with procedure and protocol over all else (including results). I accept that there’s a lot to report here, but I’m more worried about how much we are missing. Hence my desire to take a step back and think why so little changes with regard to America’s wars.”

Arkin is no fan of Trump, calling him “an ignorant and incompetent impostor,” but describes his shock at NBC’s reflexive opposition to the president’s “bumbling intuitions” to get along with Russia, to denuclearize North Korea, to get out of the Middle East, and his questioning of the US military’s involvement in Africa.

“I’m alarmed at how quick NBC is to mechanically argue the contrary, to be in favor of policies that just spell more conflict and more war. Really? We shouldn’t get out Syria? We shouldn’t go for the bold move of denuclearizing the Korean peninsula?  Even on Russia, though we should be concerned about the brittleness of our democracy that it is so vulnerable to manipulation, do we really yearn for the Cold War? And don’t even get me started with the FBI: What? We now lionize this historically destructive institution?”

“There’s a saying about consultants, that organizations hire them to hear exactly what they want to hear,” Arkin writes in the conclusion of his statement. ” I’m proud to say that NBC didn’t do that when it came to me.  Similarly I can say that I’m proud that I’m not guilty of giving my employers what they wanted. Still, the things this and most organizations fear most – variability, disturbance, difference – those things that are also the primary drivers of creativity – are not really the things that I see valued in the reporting ranks.”

That’s about as charitably as it could possibly be said by a skeptical tongue. Another way to say it would be that plutocrat-controlled and government-enmeshed media networks hire reporters to protect the warmongering oligarchic status quo upon which media-controlling plutocrats have built their respective kingdoms, and foster an environment which elevates those who promote establishment-friendly narratives while marginalizing and pressuring anyone who doesn’t. It’s absolutely bizarre that it should be unusual for there to be a civilian analyst of the US war machine’s behaviors in the mainstream media who is skeptical of its failed policies and nonstop bloodshed, and it’s a crime that such voices are barely holding on to the fringes of the media stage. Such analysts should be extremely normal and commonplace, not rare and made to feel as though they don’t belong.

New Haven, CT — Parents who fail to get their 2 to 4-year-old children vaccinated for influenza in Connecticut are in for a rude awakening when children return to school after Christmas break. If they cannot prove their child received the flu vaccine, they will not be allowed to return to school.

The new state law is simple: comply or your child cannot go to school.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

It is no question that the subject of vaccines is profoundly controversial. On both sides of the argument exists truth and lies that can hinder the ability of some to make rational decisions.

While we have everyone from attorneys to biologists, to political scientists who write for the Free Thought Project, none of us are doctors, so we do not make recommendations about what you and your family should do in regards to vaccination. That being said, however, government mandating vaccinations is a highly unethical practice as it removes the right to informed consent.

Lawmakers claim that the new law is necessary because every year in the US roughly 20,000 children under 5 are hospitalized because of the flu. But historically, the data shows that these numbers are largely skewed.

The CDC has been telling the public for nearly a decade that there are more than 200,000 estimated hospitalizations and 36,000 estimated deaths from influenza in the U.S. every year.

But these estimates count a lot of people hospitalized – not just with influenza but also with pneumonia, respiratory and circulatory illnesses – which they counted as probably associated with influenza.

What’s more is the fact that the flu shot is a crap shoot every year. It was no secret that last year’s vaccine was all but entirely ineffective. 

Also, despite reassurance from government officials, the flu vaccine has been documented to cause harm.

As TFTP reported in December, Shane Morgan, like millions of other Americans was vaccinated against the flu virus in November. However, within 36 hours of receiving the shot, he began experiencing symptoms of the flu.

“About 36 hours after he got the flu shot he started to get sick,” said Mr. Morgan’s wife, Monique.

After staying in bed for a week at his house, Morgan did not improve. In fact, things got far worse and he had to be admitted to the emergency room ICU.

Morgan spent the next 3 weeks in the ICU, blinded and paralyzed. He is now home with his family but he is far from back to normal as he’s still partially blind and in a wheelchair.

How many children will experience similar reactions as a result of Connecticut’s new law?

Luckily, for parents of students who wish not to inject their child with the flu vaccine, Connecticut still allows a religious exemption. However, as TFTP has reported in the past, this exemption is constantly under attack by government officials.

On June 30, 2015, California governor Jerry Brown signed SB 277 effectively stripping the personal and religious belief exemptions for parents who choose not to vaccinate their children. The law went into effect in 2016 and required that all children entering daycare, kindergarten, or 7th grade to be vaccinated unless they have a medical exemption.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

As TFTP reported last year, this law came to a head when police officers detained a mother to make sure she had vaccinated her son. Porsha Rasheed was simply walking her six-year-old son to the bus stop last year when she was approached by a Claremont police officer and a representative of the school district and harassed in an attempt to find out the vaccination status of her child.

In true Stasi-esque fashion, the officer and the school official approached Rasheed and demanded she show them her papers.

“I just want to know do you have the vaccine records or not?” said Philipe Levasen.

Rasheed then demands to know who is asking her these questions and the man responds that he is Philipe Levasen.

“What is your position that you need to know this?” asks Rasheed.

“Ma’am, I’m the one who needs to know if you have had the vaccines with your son,” Levasen says.

The Free Thought Project checked with the Claremont Unified School District and there is no position with the title “one who needs to know if you have had the vaccines.”

(function(w,d,s,i){w.ldAdInit=w.ldAdInit||[];w.ldAdInit.push({slot:10162674340441958,size:[0, 0],id:"ld-8962-3608"});if(!d.getElementById(i)){var j=d.createElement(s),p=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];j.async=true;j.src="//cdn2.lockerdomecdn.com/_js/ajs.js";j.id=i;p.parentNode.insertBefore(j,p);}})(window,document,"script","ld-ajs");

Luckily, Rasheed flexed her rights and the state agents left. But these cases could become the norm as more and more states mandate vaccinations.

Whether or not you agree with a mother’s decision to not vaccinate their child is irrelevant. While there will likely be many folks cheering on the state in these situations, how you feel personally about vaccines should never lead to a loss of freedom. No person should be forced by government regulation or societal pressure to receive any medication or treatment, including vaccines, against his or her will.

Sensory Processing Disorder is a neurological disorder that causes difficulties with taking in, processing, and responding to environmental stimuli. It occurs when sensory signals are not received through the senses in an organized way. A sensory disorder can cause inappropriate responses, behavioral problems, anxiety, and challenges in performing everyday tasks. Experiencing food selectivity (picky eating), abnormal pain sensations, sensory integration and self-regulatory issues are typically part of the picture. This condition used to be called sensory integration dysfunction.

Some people with Sensory Processing Disorder are oversensitive to things in their environment. Individuals with Sensory Processing Disorder may lack coordination, are unable to tell where their limbs are in space, and have difficulty engaging in conversation and play. Sensory processing problems are usually identified in children but can also be present in adults. These problems are common in those with developmental disorders like autism.

Sensory Processing (Integration) Disorders (SPD) are not recognized in the DSM-5; and as dictated by the Academy of Paediatrics, “it should not be given as a diagnosis by paediatricians.” However, many will agree that it is a genuine condition. If you suspect your child may be suffering from SPD, I highly recommend The Out-Of-Sync Child by Carol Stock Kranowitz and The Sensory Processing Disorder Answer Book by Tara Delaney.

Autism Spectrum Disorders & Sensory Issues Are On The Rise

We are facing an epidemic. The number of children diagnosed with autism or a related disorder has grown exponentially, a crisis of epidemic proportion. In 1975, about one out of every 5,000 children had autism. Today, one in every thirteen children have a life-threatening food allergy, and even more have numerous food sensitivities. According to the CDC, autism spectrum disorders are now affecting 1 in 68 children. Some estimate that it is closer to 1 in 45 boys. Also, 1 in every ten boys take medication for ADHD, and the CDC reports that as much as 1 in 6 children have a developmental disorder. Research studies conducted by the SPD Scientific Work Group suggest that 1 in every 6 children experience sensory symptoms that may be significant enough to affect aspects of everyday living. Numbers like this were unheard of a few decades ago, and all of these disorders are closely tied.

Traditionally, sensory processing disorders, ADHD and autism spectrum disorders get diagnosed by occupational therapists or psychotherapists such as myself, psychologists, and psychiatrists, who recommend traditional therapy and medications to address neurological symptoms. Parents are often told that their child’s diagnosis is complex and multifactorial, and is a result of genetic, psychological and other factors widely unknown. Most doctors are taught to treat the emotional and mental component of these disorders with medication, and the physical or medical issues these children often share are rarely noted or discussed. Some of these issues may include eczema, asthma, chronic illness, gastrointestinal distress, food sensitivities, yeast overgrowth, leaky gut syndrome, malnutrition, hypoglycaemia, adrenal fatigue, hormone imbalances, and sleep disturbances. Typically, proper testing also reveals high levels of heavy metals and environmental toxins relative to neurotypical children.

Environmental Factors Leading To The Increase – It’s Not Genetics Alone

The issues are systemic. We are living in a toxic world. These pollutants are integrated into every aspect of our lives from the toxins in our atmosphere to the foods we eat to the medications we take to the clothes we wear to the cosmetics we use. We are poisoning ourselves, and the consequences are starting to show with the incredible rise of neurological issues and diseases like cancer, asthma, diabetes, and many autoimmune disorders like autism.

The environment in which we live and breathe, including the pesticides, herbicides, genetically modified foods, heavy metals, and chemicals we eat and inject have a direct influence on the expression of our genetic code by altering the expression of genetic information. In the study of disease, researchers in the field of epigenetics are increasingly finding that the “turning on or off” of our genes is preventing us from detoxing these toxins effectively. These mutations inhibit the body’s ability to digest food, transport substances between cells, and utilize essential nutrients appropriately.

When we seek help from a naturopath, Defeat Autism Now doctor, Integrative Neurologist, Functional Medicine Doctor or a Medical Academy of Pediatric Special Needs physician, it becomes more apparent. Testing reveals that many of our children have numerous genetic mutations. According to the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, “Accumulating evidence points to the involvement of epigenetic modifications as foundational in creating ASD pathophysiology.”

Processed food, as well as our soil, is entirely void of any whole food nutrients. When tested we discover, most of the persons with such disorders are deficient in important brain minerals, vitamins and amino acids that create our feel-good hormones and help our brain fire properly. Remember: Bad gasoline causes engine damage and poor performance, and an empty gas tank cannot run at all.

14 Holistic Approaches For Addressing Sensory Issues

Although there’s no ‘one size fits all’ or magic pill you can take when it comes to health, here are the top 14 recommendations:

  1. Find a functional medicine or naturopathic doctor that can conduct a complete metabolic workup and reinforce the importance of gut healing. Gut health is a critical component in my day-to-day conversation with those who are trying to heal themselves and their children. A workup would include testing for metabolic, immunologic and digestive conditions. Unfortunately, only addressing one piece of the puzzle yields a less than favorable outcome.
  2. Cook and eat organic, whole, nutrient dense foods from the earth and less from a box. A good start is to eliminate all processed food from the diet and limit exposure to as many environmental toxins as possible. Food additives & environmental triggers contribute to a child’s sensory, attention, mood, focus, and sleep issues. Avoid MSG, food dyes, high fructose corn syrup, gluten, aspartame, BHT, and BHA in food.
  3. Clean up your home environment. The most effective way to reduce the number of neurotoxic chemicals in your environment is to clean with natural products such as vinegar, lemon, baking soda, and castile soap. Avoid burning toxic candles, using Teflon coated cookware, and ingredients like parabens, phthalates, BPA, formaldehyde, and dioxin.
  4. Identify and treat mineral deficiencies. Numerous studies have shown evidence of mineral deficiencies in children with ADHD and beyond, including zinc, iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and selenium. In the case of SPD, magnesium and potassium deficiency are often linked to fatigue, weakness, irritability, and sensory integration issues as well as depression and anxiety. Minerals help to send signals through the nervous system.
  5. Investigate potential heavy metal toxicity. Toxicity caused by heavy metals such as aluminum and others can promote neurological malfunction including sensory issues. Being familiar with these metals and appreciating the importance of detoxification is hugely beneficial for resolving neurological conditions. Caveat: Heavy metal detoxification should never be attempted without a qualified doctor or practitioner. Supporting the gut, liver, and kidneys is essential. Homeopathy is a gentle yet effective way to help eliminate the toxic burden.
  6. See a functional medicine Lyme literate practitioner about PANS/PANDAS. One of the many neurological symptoms of Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric is sensory processing issues. PANS/PANDAS is caused by a weak immune system not being able to handle Lyme Disease, a Strep infection, Epstein Barr, mold, and other pathogens. If you suspect brain encephalitis due to viral/bacterial load, I highly recommend the book Brain Under Attack written by the board members of Epidemic Answers.
  7. Seek out a homeopathic physician. Homeopaths have been addressing “sensational” individuals by assessing each person’s individual history, illnesses and response to stimuli to formulate a treatment plan with the goal of helping the immune system and brain chemistry reset itself. Homeopathic remedies such as Nux Vomica is used to treat irritability, impatience, digestive ailments, insomnia, and sensory integration issues. Mineral cell salts also stimulate the body’s natural healing mechanisms to satisfy mineral imbalances. A couple of useful cell salt remedies to have around are Silicea (Sil) for noise and light sensitivity as well as Kali Phosphoricum (Kali Phos) which is widely used as a homeopathic remedy for anxiety, depression, sleep, irritability, and ADHD symptoms.
  8. Eat healthy fats such as nuts, seeds, and avocados. 60% of our brain is made up of fat. So, it is no surprise that a deficiency can lead to neurological issues. There is mounting evidence that eating and supplementing with Omega-3 fatty acids can help lessen depression, ADHD, and sensory issues.
  9. Investigate the MAO-A genetic mutation. If an individual has the MAO-A mutation, balancing and regulating serotonin levels becomes a critical factor in helping these people with aggression and sensory system imbalances such as touch, sound, etc. The herb Ginko Biloba, riboflavin and high-quality B complex supplements are often suggested.
  10. Work with an occupational therapist to help retrain the senses by using a sensory integration approach, and address primitive reflex integration. The reflexes are vitally important for the proper development of the brain, nervous system, and sensory systems. If these reflexes have not dropped off in the first two years of life, it can adversely impact a child’s development and can lead to a sensory processing disorder.
  11. Look into brain training therapies. Research has shown that the brain has a tremendous amount of neuroplasticity. Brain therapy training such as neurofeedback, integrative reflex, vision, Auditory Integration Training (AIT) and Brain Balance TherapyTM can make a world of difference.
  12. Therapeutic massage, cranial sacral therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, and other bodywork practices are also worth a try. When a sensory processing disorder occurs, it is like there is a short circuit in the processing machine. Light manipulation allows the body to gently realign all systems to help facilitate better communication between the body and the brain. The goal is to balance the autonomic nervous system and to improve the neural connections so that the sensory and motor components of the central nervous system interact more successfully.
  13. Be consistent with your treatment therapies, strategies and goals. Treating sensory processing issues requires lifestyle changes as well as time, hard work, and perseverance. For example, if you need to eliminate certain offending foods as part of the protocol – cheating will delay the healing process!
  14. And the most important advice I can give is to TRUST YOUR INTUITION! You know your child and your own body best. Our intuition is our best guide!
