Paganism and witchcraft, like most subcultures, tends to go through trends – periods where different things become popular for a period of time. I’ve seen this repeatedly over the years, rather like the tide, things become a prime topic of interest than fade a bit as something else comes into focus. There’s nothing wrong with this pattern of course it’s a natural flow. Right now it seems like fairies are a hot topic de jour, as they have been a few times before, and I’m seeing an uptick in fairy-themed books and conversations. As someone whose main practice has centered on fairy work – that is the active practice of trucking with fairies – for most of my life this naturally gets my attention.

When we see fairies being discussed in paganism there’s a very – very – wide range of ways those beings are interpreted. So wide that one end of the spectrum is basically unrecognizable to the other end, but that is perhaps a different discussion. My own view tends to be based in two things: personal experiences and traditional folklore. Based on my own perspective I think these beings can sometimes be helpful but also sometimes dangerous, and are often mercurial. This means that when I talk about being a person who works with fairies its coming from a place of respect as well as caution.

Socialism works not only because it promises higher status to a lot of people. Socialism is catnip because it promises status to people who, deep down, know they shouldn’t have it. There is such a thing as natural law, the natural state of any normally functioning human society. Basic biology tells us people are different. Some are more intelligent, more attractive, more crafty and popular. Everybody knows, deep in their lizard brains, how human mating works: women are attracted to the top dogs. Being generous, all human societies default to a Pareto distribution where 20% of people are high-status, and everyone else just has to put up with their inferiority for life. That’s just how it works.

Socialism though promised to change that, and Marx showed they had a good plan. Lenin then put that plan to work in practice. What did Lenin do? Exterminate the natural aristocracy of Russia, and build a ruling class with a bunch of low-status people. Workers, peasants, Jews, Latvians, Ukrainians. Lenin went out of his way to recruit everyone who had a grudge against Imperial Russian society. And it worked, brilliantly. The Bolsheviks, a small party with little popular support, won the civil war, and became the awesome Soviet Union. The early Soviet Union promoted minorities, women, sexual deviants, atheists, cultists and every kind of weirdo. Everybody but intelligent, conservative Russians of good families. The same happened in China, where e.g. the 5 provinces which formed the southern Mongolian steppe were joined up into “Inner Mongolia autonomous region”, what Sailer calls “consolidate and surrender”.

In Communist countries pedigree was very important. You couldn’t get far in the party if you had any little kulak, noble or landowner ancestry. Only peasants and workers were trusted. Why? Because only peasants and workers could be trusted to be loyal. Rich people, or people with the inborn traits which lead to being rich, will always have status in any natural society. They will always do alright. That’s why they can’t be trusted; the stakes are never high for them. If anything they’d rather have more freedom to realize their talents. People of peasant stock though, they came from the dregs of society. They know very well that all they have was given to them by the party. And so they will be loyal to the death, because they know it, if the Communist regime falls, their status will fall as fast as a hammer in a well. And the same goes for everyone else, especially those ethnic minorities.

If you think it can’t get worse than transexuals or pedophiles, you’re really not understanding how this works. Look at this NYT article: a black woman, ex-con, convicted of murdering her own 4 year old son. She served 20 years in prison, which she spent studying sociology or something. After leaving prison, she applied to study a PhD at Harvard, which rejected her. Progressives were up in arms. How could you!

Go to the link, and look at that woman. Look at that face. She never expressed any remorse over killing her children. She lied about it in the PhD application. She disposed of the body and never told the cops where her son’s corpse is! This is utter and complete psycho. Nobody in their right mind would want anything to do with this woman. But that’s precisely the point. In most human societies before 1900 she would have been killed, legally or extralegally. But precisely this kind of person, someone who should in all justice be the lowest status person on earth; that’s exactly the people that the Left wants on its team. You can count on her extreme loyalty to any progressive idea that the party transmits to her. And so, yes, of course, she finally got her PhD, at New York University. And unlike 97% of PhD students out there, you can bet on her getting a full tenured professorship very soon.

Yes, it’s all madness, but it works. It really works like a charm. The richest parts of America, California and New York, are now a one-party state. America has legislation which forces every private enterprise of size to have a proportion of women, of black people and sexual deviants; who of course know they don’t belong there, and thus are extremely faithful political commissars. More faithful than the actual official political commissars that Communist China has also in their private companies.

For van der Meijden, a microdose of psilocybin makes his musical brainstorm sessions yield “more concepts, ideas, and solutions,” he said, partly because it lets him “better understand and visualize other people’s concepts.” In his design and illustration work, it produces a “more natural flow of line drawing” and lets him “see more possibilities in how things can be or look.” In his music, it lets him “analyze all the different instruments better” and know, for instance, whether to turn up or down the reverberation effect.

The Dutch study, which was published on a preprint site and has not undergone peer review at a journal, has several caveats. For one thing, having seen a test before might make people better at it. More problematic, the study didn’t have a control group of people who took something other than psilocybin. That leaves open the possibility that it wasn’t the compound that improved some forms of thinking, but the expectation that it would do so. Maybe people who microdose believe in its benefits enough to make those expectations reality.

On the other hand, the results fit with another new study of psilocybin. In this one, scientists led by computational neuroscientist Joana Cabral of the University of Oxford used fMRI scans to study the brain activity of nine people who volunteered to be injected with 2 milligram (trip-inducing) doses. The chemical changed the functional connectivity of various brain regions, so that activity in one became synced with that in another. In particular, the rational, logical, well-behaved frontoparietal regions became “strongly destabilized,” the scientists reported, melding with activity in emotional and other regions to produce “unconstrained consciousness,” “mind wandering,” and a sense that everything is connected to everything else. Seeing connections that elude other people is almost the definition of creativity.

Unlike general relativity, quantum mechanics, and particle physics, thermodynamics embeds a direction of time. Its second law states that the total entropy, or disorder, in an isolated system never decreases over time. Yet this doesn’t mean that our conventional notion of time is on any firmer grounding, Rovelli said. Entropy, or disorder, is subjective: “Order is in the eye of the person who looks.” In other words the distinction between past and future, the growth of entropy over time, depends on a macroscopic effect—“the way we have described the system, which in turn depends on how we interact with the system,” he said.

The mysterious methods used by people in bygone times to summon fairies to help navigate the trials and tribulations of day-to-day life are set to be uncovered. Researchers from the University of Exeter have launched a new study to examine collections of 15th to 17th-century spell books and grimoires that gave instructions on how to summon and conjure fairies, demons and other spirits. This period, starting in the late medieval times, saw the writing of many books giving instructions on how to perform sorcery and necromancy, and fairies played an important role.

A man and a woman had no children, although they would have given their lives to have some. They prayed for offspring, under any conditions. It appeared that heaven had mercy on them, but when the time came, the newborn was a female frog.

Not letting themselves be distracted, the man and the woman raised her. They taught her music and all kinds of skills.

Above all else the frog loved to sing, and she trained her voice and her range until one would think she was the best singer from the city. Other people had not seen the frog and thought indeed that she was an unknown singer and could not explain why she did not perform in public.

One day the king’s son passed by the house and heard the frog singing. He stopped and listened for a long time. He immediately fell in love with the unknown singer and approached her father with a request for permission to see her and speak with her, but the father refused.

The links between our excrement and our food have been fundamental to human survival as long as our species has existed. In hunter-gatherer and nomadic societies, human excrement nourished wild plants. The Book of Deuteronomy instructed the Israelites, “when you relieve yourself, dig a hole and cover up your excrement,” a measure that reduced disease and recycled waste. In settled agricultural societies, the excrement of humans and other animals helped maintain soil fertility and crop yields. In early capitalist towns, many townspeople had plots of land or kept animals, so using excrement continued to be part of everyday life. As towns grew, so did urban-rural manure trade. Historian Leona J. Skelton has shown that “dunghills were an immoveable fact of life for pre-industrial urban dwellers” because excrement was valuable:

Throughout the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, many urban inhabitants across Britain took responsibility for their own manure and removed it out of town themselves to apply to their own arable land, sold it directly to a local farmer or arranged for it to be removed and sold by a middle man. Inhabitants were careful to heap solid rubbish and manure separately because the latter was a valuable fertilizer.2

Wonder is sometimes said to be a childish emotion, one that we grow out of. But that is surely wrong. As adults, we might experience it when gaping at grand vistas. I was dumbstruck when I first saw a sunset over the Serengeti. We also experience wonder when we discover extraordinary facts. I was enthralled to learn that, when arranged in a line, the neurons in a human brain would stretch the 700 miles from London to Berlin. But why? What purpose could this wide-eyed, slack-jawed feeling serve? It’s difficult to determine the biological function of any affect, but whatever it evolved for(and I’ll come to that), wonder might be humanity’s most important emotion.

There was once a prince who found himself in the Green Isle of the West, and this is how the story of his adventures are told:

The Prince of the Kingdom of Level-Plains set out on his travels to see the world, and he went northward and westward until he came to a red glen surrounded by mountains. There he met with a proud hero, who spoke to him, saying: “Whence come you, and whither are you going?”

Said the prince: “I am searching for my equal,” and as he spoke he drew his sword. He was a bold and foolish young man.

“I have no desire to fight with you,” the proud hero answered. “Go your way in peace.”

The prince was jealous of the hero who spoke thus so calmly and proudly, and said: “Draw your sword or die.”

One of the biggest open questions of this century is whether 144,000 different chemicals swirling throughout the world are properly tested and analyzed for toxicity. By almost all accounts, the scale of toxic risk is unknown. This may be the biggest tragedy of all time, a black eye of enormous proportions.

Correspondingly and very likely, not yet 100% proven but probably 99%, as a result of ubiquitous chemical presence, one hundred fifty million (150,000,000) Americans have chronic disease, including high cholesterol, high blood pressure, arthritis, heart disease, diabetes, fibromyalgia, cancer, stroke, asthma, cystic fibrosis, obesity, and osteoporosis (Rand Corporation Review 2017). Why?

According to Dr. Paul Winchester, who discovered the link between chemicals, like pesticides atrazine and glyphosate aka Roundup and epigenetic human alteration, the findings are: “The most important next discovery in all of medicine.” (Source: EcoWatch, Aug. 16, 2018)

Dr. Winchester was one of the researchers/authors of “Atrazine Induced Epigenetic Transgenerational Inheritance of Disease, Lean Phenotype and Sperm Epimutation Pathology Biomarkers,” PLOS, published September 20, 2017.

The grisly underlying message of that study is as clear as a bell: Chemicals found far and wide throughout America alter human hormones as well as human DNA, which passes along generation-to-generation known as transgenerational inheritance.

https://www.counterpunch.org/2018/09/04/chemically-induced-frankenstein-humans/

Still, atrazine is not the only human hormone-altering chemical in the environment. Dr. Winchester tested nearly 20 different chemicals and all demonstrated epigenetic effects, for example, all of the chemicals reduced fertility, even in the 3rd generation.

Towards the end of the 19th century, a coalition of left-wing financial and industrial interests resolved to take over the British Empire and the world for which purpose they set up two organizations: the Milner Group and the Fabian Society.

The roots of this initiative go back to the 1700s’ Industrial Revolution which had given birth to a new powerful class consisting of international trade, finance and industrial interests. Much of these interests’ power and influence derived from gold and diamond deposits which they exploited through their mining operations. Gold produced by the Milner Group’s South African mining companies like the Anglo American Corporation amounted to half of the world’s newly mined gold. Large quantities of gold were shipped to London, refined at N. M. Rothschild’s Royal Mint Refinery and sold through the banking firm N. M. Rothschild & Sons. The gold price itself was being fixed daily in the “fixing room” of N. M. Rothschild’s offices on St. Swithin’s Lane in the City of London.

A similar monopoly was held on diamonds, all South African diamond mines being owned by the Milner Group’s company De Beers – which continues to hold a virtual monopoly on the price and marketing of diamonds through its Central Selling Organization. Another key resource controlled by the Milner Group and its associates was oil which it monopolized through operations like British Petroleum (BP), Royal Dutch Shell, and Standard Oil, in addition to important industries such as steel which it controlled through various outfits from the US to the British Steel Corporation. The same interests also controlled banking and finance through a worldwide network of financial firms like the Bank of England, the US Federal Reserve System, Lazard, J P Morgan, Chase, and the various Rothschild banks.

The global interests and activities of this new “liberal capitalist” class induced its leading elements to work for the destruction of the existing world order based on sovereign nation-states – which they regarded as restrictive – and set up a world government that would guarantee the financial and economic freedoms required by these elements to achieve their monopolistic ends.

The mighty oak has been central to English history and culture for centuries. Now new research is revealing precisely why.

A nationwide survey has just revealed that England has more ancient oak trees than the rest of Europe put together.

Over the past four years, tree historians have discovered 1,200 previously unknown but still surviving mediaeval and Tudor oaks, pushing the grand total for such trees in England to a remarkable 3,400.

About 85 per cent of them are between 400 and 600 years old, while some 12 per cent date back 600 to 800 years, with 3.4 per cent (117 examples) dating back 800 to 1,000 years. The survey work has been coordinated by the Woodland Trust, working in conjunction with the Ancient Tree Forum, the Tree Register and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

On the first seal a wild goat is depicted being attacked by two wolves, on the second a deer is depicted in a twisted position.Τhe third seal, however, which is made of carnelian is particularly interesting as it depicts an upright daemonic figure, a Minoan Genius, which is carrying a dead deer on its shoulders. An identical theme is encountered on a seal from Crete and an ivory tile from Thebes.

“There are lots of areas in the countryside that are not suitable for hedgehogs or badgers,” says Williams. “There is something fundamentally wrong in the rural landscape for those species and probably lots of other species as well.”

The authors discus what these “wrongs” might be. They note that habitat loss is one of the primary threats to biodiversity across the globe and the main driver of land-based species loss. They add that habitat loss is coming mostly from increased intensity of agricultural production.

“Within the UK, agricultural landscapes have changed significantly since the early 1900s, becoming more intensively managed and homogenised through practices such as the removal of hedgerows to create larger fields, the widespread application of molluscicides, insecticides and other pesticides, and increased mechanisation. In the UK, one of the hedgehog’s preferred habitats, grassland, has declined in area since the 1950s.”

And if badgers and hardcore farming weren’t enough, rural lands have become fractured by new roads, which are not only dangerous for any creature trying to cross them but create a barrier for movement as well.

***PREFACE: Drugs are bad and the government is your friend. Only rebels and subversive dissidents use psychedelics, so you should never, ever do them under any circumstances or it will make you a bad cog in the machine. Everything you’re about to read should be interpreted as a work of fiction or sarcasm or something. Obey.***

The Institute of Psychiatry in London has begun recruiting volunteers for a study on depression treatment using psilocybin, the psychedelic component in magic mushrooms. Late last month the Food and Drug Administration authorized a similar study in the US. About once a week, give or take, we are now seeing new studies, academic reports, books and mainstream media articles about psychedelics and their potential effects on human wellbeing.

They’re calling it the psychedelic renaissance, the first resurgence of mainstream scientific interest in the benefits of psychedelic substances since the government slammed that door and threw away the key in the 1960s. More and more studies are showing that ingesting psychedelics can be a powerful tool for treating disorders ranging from anxiety to depression to addiction to fear of death in hospice patients. These studies are always new and surprising revelations to people who have never tripped.

After years of hunting archaeologists have found sunken ruins that could be where the First Council of Nicaea was held – making it one of the most important places in Christian history

WHAT WAS THE FIRST COUNCIL OF NICAEA?

The First Council of Nicaea was a meeting in 325 AD in the ancient town of Nicaea, now known as Iznik, in Turkey, which was then part of the Roman Empire.

It was called by Constantine I, the first emperor to convert to Christianity.

The council brought bishops from across the world to the shores of Lake Ascanius to agree the particulars of their faith.

The meeting was held to decide whether Jesus had been ‘begotten’ by God from his own being, and therefore had no beginning, or was created out of nothing, and therefore had a beginning.

The council decided overwhelmingly in favour of the former.

As well as agreeing the nature of the relationship between God and Jesus, the First Council of Nicaea set a date for Easter.

Constantine believed that setting a shared date for Easter would be good for the unity of the Church as a whole.

It was also where the Nicene Creed was created, which is still used in Catholic Mass.

It is an often-repeated statement of belief that ends with the words ‘We believe in the Holy Spirit’.

Believe in parallel universes? Time travel? You might after reading this story Tenney recounts. “In the early 2000s, I was working with an older woman who was experiencing what she called ‘ghost children.’ She drew pictures of what they looked like. Years after she had passed away, I revisited her former home to speak to the new owners to see if they had experienced any ‘ghost children.’ The new owners had not seen any, but their real children had been drawing pictures of the woman who had been my client.”

Well, dear peoples who follow this blog, what can I  tell you this time ?

I  do love a real mystery to contemplate and one of my favourites is the weird unexplained stone ruts. I have mentioned these before, Sylvie Ivanova aka New Earth Lady seems to be the best researcher, and I am a fan even though she banned me from her forums, for some unknown reason. Possible my uncouth manners ? But hers are just as bad, because she  declined to offer any reason. In my estimation a lot of her thinking is overly romantic and fanciful, but I remain a fan and her work on the stone tracks is outstanding and amazing.

Why do all the regular academics from the world’s great institutions ignore these phenomena ? I am uncertain as to the correct reason, but suspect it is because this evidence disrupts all conventional paradigms that we are taught concerning our past history.

What’s that George Orwell saying ? ‘Whoever controls the story of the past can control the present and future’. Something like that.

This apparently is the first of three new videos from New Earth.

So, there is that. I wonder if a satisfactory explanation will be found before I myself die, or we all die, destroying civilisation in a nuclear conflagration ? I would really like to know what made these tracks and how. There are a handfull of plausible explanations on offer from various sources, but as far as I can tell, they all fail because of exceptions which do not fit.

Seems to me that most folk who are fortunate enough to get relatively secure and well paid professional positions in academia, after years of hard work, do not want to endanger their prospects by flirting with wild possibilities. But in this case, unlike ESP, poltergeists, etc, there is actual tangible solid material evidence to study.

It’s the same problem that Brien Forster has encountered with the elongated human skulls and obvious examples of some kind of lost high technology. The regular academics won’t go anywhere near the subject.

The people of some of the ancient civilisations were not less intelligent than modern folk, in fact average cranial capacity was actually greater in some cases.

I can understand folk who refuse to believe in strange supernatural types of phenomena, because they have never experienced ‘non-ordinary’ states of consciousness, and there are plenty of wacky people whom I do not take very seriously myself, but there seems to be ever increasing HARD evidence which cannot be explained by the stories we all get taught by mainstream scientists, academics and historians.

I guess you’ll each have to make up your own mind where you stand, and make your personal judgement as to when what someone says becomes farfetched or delusional. In my estimation the world is awash  with fraudsters, cranks and miscellaneous lunatics….

There’s often plenty of real evidence, and then the problem becomes how  that evidence is best interpreted and what does it mean for us poor mortals stumbling through life.

It’s like the whole human race is a jury, having to decide what’s true and what’s false from all the bewildering information being presented.

One of the problems is that we are now presented with so much information, even in a single day, that it becomes impossible to judge, evaluate and digest it all. I read somewhere that 800 new medical papers are published every day. Even if they had nothing else to do,  no doctor could read and absorb that much info in a day, let alone every day for years to keep up. And that’s just medicine.

Personally I do find the overload of information that this internet offers is stimulating, exhilarating and addictive, but I recognise the great value of zazen, Zen buddhist/taoist meditation, of having the mind be still and empty, taking the focal point of consciousness away from the head  and down to the tanden, the belly below the navel. This opens up vast treasure of alternative ways of knowing and being of a different quality to intellectual thought in the mental realms, not to mention Gautama Buddha’s Enlightenment. 🙂

    When a bunch of scientists from a reputed city institute received WhatsApp messages about an event claiming that India’s prowess in aeronautics is credited to events in Hindu scriptures, they decided to call the organisers’ bluff by applying a scientific lens. However, in a dramatic turn of events, they got thrown out. It wasn’t just the ‘blind-faith’ audience that stunned the experts, it was the theories being propagated by scientists themselves. They found it shocking when they heard that mercury and donkey’s urine fuelled the planes in ancient times.

    What’s worse, the speakers of the event – titled ‘Viman Shastra’ and organised by a group called ‘Bharatam Reawakening’ – were scientists themselves. While Dr Prahlada Ramarao is former vice chancellor of Defence Institute of Advanced Technology (DIAT) and former chief controller of DRDO, Kavya Vaddadi is an aeronautical engineer.

    The scientists who somewhat caused a stir at the event at a Dadar school hall were Aniket Sule, scientist at Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (HBCSE), Dr Rohini Karandikar-Dange, PhD in Bioscience from IIT-B and post-doctoral fellow at HBCSE, and Satakshi Goyal, a PhD scholar at HBCSE. Part of a movement to promote scientific temper, the three asked such pointed questions that they, in fact, riled the audience who demanded their exit from the event.

    One of the posters describing the lecture had said, “Get answers to questions like ‘Are we really the pioneer of air transport?’ ‘Did we have a scripture talking about aeronautical engineering aeons before Wright Brothers?’” Largely circulated through social media, such posters had attracted about 100 people. Expecting being asked to leave, Sule, Dange and Goyal strategically sat apart to avoid getting targeted as a group.

    “When I started asking questions, the organisers asked me to leave. I refused, saying that they were free to call the security. I was expecting such a backlash,” Sule told Mirror, adding that they were clear about their single mindedness to bust the myth. “We thought if such events are being held and if students and youths are attending it, it was important that they know that such claims are not supported by evidence,” he said, adding that the participants insisted that they were there to listen to the lecture and not their questions. Later, some even tried to physically push Sule out of the hall.

    Countering a claim made at the event that mercury was used to fuel aircraft in Vedic times, Sule said, “I asked where was mercury mined? There are no mercury mines in India. I also asked if such research has a valid basis; and why are there no peer reviewed publications?” According to Dange, the three wanted to understand how people are propagating pseudo-science and the words and examples they use.

    Even if the diggers are able to demonstrate that there was once a large stone circle here, that tells us nothing whatsoever about Stonehenge. This is a landscape of stone settings, some of which are bound to fall into the same timescale as the famous old ruin. All it tells us is that some time before 5,000 years ago some of our ancient ancestors enjoyed putting up big stones, and sometimes taking them away again as priorities changed. But we knew that already……….

    Are there any control sites being dug, which the diggers can refer to when they try to convince the rest oof is that what they have uncovered at Waun Mawn is atypical and even significant? I doubt that very much. Finding extraction pits and / or sockets without stones in them in other places would be very inconvenient. And we know already that MPP and his colleagues do not like inconvenience!

    Messages from the mountain suggest that thus far nothing much has been found by the diggers. All will be revealed when MPP gives his 3 (or is it more?) talks in the local area next week.

    One final thought. Even if people started to build a stone circle here, there is as yet no reason at all to think that it might have been completed. Maybe this was just another example of unfinished business, like the elaborate prehistoric ditch and embankment constructed on the north flank of Carningli. Somebody started it, with the best of intentions, and then abandoned it. Who knows why? Famine? Loss of manpower following warfare or local tribal disputes? Changed ritual or utilitarian priorities? The nagging of a sensible wife who thought it would be better for her dearly beloved to spend time catching fish than building silly embankments?

    It’s pretty well common sense, that is, if a thing appears to be a thing, it probably is that thing. There are exceptions though. Outside of a discussion of the fallibility of our senses, the weirdness of our world quite regularly presents us with items and ideas that defy that ineffable logic above.

    One such item – an item that actually belongs to a group of objects known as out-of-place-artefacts – is called the Klerksdorp Sphere (or spheres as is actually the case). Also commonly known as the grooved spheres, the Klerksdorp Spheres are what some are calling definitive proof of the advanced technological abilities of ancient (pre-historic) cultures. You might think that Erik von Däniken should have his hands in this argument, but as far as I can tell he doesn’t.

    In 1924, the Malden ruins were examined by Kenneth Emory, an anthropologist from the Bishop Museum in Honolulu, who theorized that they were the creation of a small Polynesian population which had resided there for several generations some centuries earlier. There are, however, those who dispute his theory, claiming that Emory was not motivated to reach any other conclusions and that his purpose for reaching this conclusion was primarily to support his thesis that Tonga and Samoa were the departure point when the Polynesian culture spread westwards across the Pacific to Tahiti, the Marquesas, and Hawaii.

    They also claim that an admission that Malden might have traces of an older human presence than that of the Polynesians would have destroyed Emory’s entire paradigm of the earliest settlement in the Pacific. “For aspiring young scientists at the beginning of their career, such things have never been particularly tempting.” Emory went on to become the foremost expert on Polynesian culture 30 years later.

    Amongst the 21 archaeological sites discovered, they found temple platforms, housing, and graves. Various wells once used by these ancients were later claimed to be dry or brackish. Emory theorized that a population of between 100 and 200 natives could have produced all of the Malden structures. Maraes (spiritual meeting grounds) of a similar type are found on Raivavae, one of the Austral Islands.

    The Paved Roads Lead Into The Sea, But How Far Do They Extend?
    Documented observations state that from the center of the island, radiating from several temple complexes, are a network of roads made of large basalt slabs, fitted tightly together. These roads cross the island and the beaches and disappears under the waves of the Pacific. They are very similar to the Ara Metua, a paved road on Rarotonga Island, 1,000 miles to the south. Rarotonga, like Malden Island and others in the Pacific, has a number of pyramid-platforms connected by roads. Strange stacks of stones are also scattered across Malden Island, while the pyramids are capped with dolmens or ‘compass stones’. These 40 stone temples on Malden Island are described as similar in design to the buildings of Nan Madol on Pohnpei, some 3,400 miles away.

    Mitch Williamson, researcher and writer says, “This suggests a culture that is more than 50,000 years old and that this entire land mass was once above water supporting a civilization that had no trouble moving around tremendous stones to build very large, complicated societies which we know absolutely nothing about, other than the fact that someone built them and they are older than biblical history….” He also states, “Sea levels have not risen significantly during the last three millennia. If future research shows that the paved paths extend beyond the current water edge of the beaches into the sea, then it would have been proven that these relics must be of pre-Polynesian origin.”

    Raise your index finger at an arm’s length in front of your eyes and move it slowly from left to right, and then back. Do this several times and notice (or have your partner observe) that your gaze follows your finger on a smooth path, with a continuous fluid motion.

    That’s your smooth pursuit system at work. Now try to replicate the same eye motion while imagining the trajectory that your finger described previously, without seeing an actual finger. You will find (or your partner will verify) that your eyes are no longer moving smoothly, but are instead performing tiny frog jumps from side to side along the imagined path. These little eye jumps are not controlled by your smooth pursuit system (which is inactive in the absence of motion in the visual field), but by your saccadic system (‘saccade’ is French for jolt), which you use to explore the visual scene around you.

    A team of researchers at Stanford University and the University of Wisconsin-Madison realized that–because people can’t perform smooth pursuit eye motions in response to imagined trajectories—they could track the eye movements of lucid dreamers to discover if dream imagery is more similar to our perception of actual objects (which can generate smooth pursuit movements) or to our imagination (which cannot). The question goes back to Aristotle, but had remained unresolved until now.

    The oldest body found inside belongs to a 15-year-old boy dubbed “ The Young Prince ”, buried 23,500 years ago. After all those years, his cap still rests on his head and his shellfish jewelry still lies by his side.

    He is an extreme case. The bulk of the twenty bodies buried there were buried over a 500 year period around 10,000 BC, at the tail end of the last Ice Age. And, like The Young Prince, their bones are still incredibly well-preserved.

    Minister of Antiquities Khaled El Enany opened the tomb of the sixth dynasty Vizier Mehu in Saqqara Necropolis, on Saturday for the first time since its discovery in 1939 by Egyptologist Zaki Saad.

    Mostafa Waziri, secretary general of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, noted that restoration work was carried out before its inauguration.

    “The tomb is one of the most beautiful in Saqqara Necropolis because it still keeps its vivid colours and distinguished scenes,” he added, “among the most strange scenes is the one depicting the marriage of crocodiles with the existence of a turtle”.

    The tomb belongs to a high-ranking ancient official called Mehu, who held 48 titles as inscribed on the walls of his burial chamber and who was also related to the first king of the 6th dynasty.

    It includes two chambers for his son Mery Re Ankh and grandson Hetap Ka II, as well as a long narrow corridor with six chambers.

    The walls feature magnificent inscriptions of tomb’s owner hunting in a jungle or fishing and drawings showing aspects of Ancient Egyptian life, such as harvesting and acrobatic dance, which was previously not shown in Saqqara before the sixth dynasty.

    We’re headed for a bloody civil war. What will set it off?

    There are too many foreigners here who hate our guts, they will be combatants.

    The left will most likely set it off, that’s all they can talk about, a race war. When MSM doesn’t call out the Democratic National Committee for calling for a race war, then you know it’s on.

    Even with a good economy, all we get is race.

    Perhaps if the economy can be roiled by the Jews again.

    Everyone can see we have a large element trying to destroy the country. And who is egging it on, the Jews.

    17% of the American people are on some kind of mind drugs which causes brain tissue loss, I estimate 30% of the population has brain damage. Right now, chipping the brain which was considered conspiracy theory is now out in the open. Another one is a chip to connect the brain to the wifi.

    Where is the protector, the MSM, do they ever tell us about this, no but they promote it by announcing every new mind damaging step.

    The Jews are not in our best interest, nor the communist and foreigners. The army Obama wanted which was stronger than the US Army, remember that speech.

    Inbred homosexual armies all over the place, MSM, government, everywhere,working with inbred Jews to do us in. 40% of the Jews are inbred because as practice they marry their first cousins. In many states it’s against the law. It causes homosexuality and mental illness.

    I read Hollywood is all homosexuals, it can’t be all homosexuals, unless they mean the inbred Jews too. I don’t watch movies anymore, don’t own a TV, it’s always lies anyway, even TV shows and movies all have an agenda today, and shows and movies are really not good anymore compared to the past. It’s better to watch an old western than to see social engineering to be a homosexual or it’s racism against whites to get the foreigners to kill us.

    I wrote about the wars through the ages were wars against humans and the inbred, a good example is, if we are not like the inbred they plot to kill us off. I predict a bloody civil war just like the wars through the history of mankind. What does that mean to you? get a weapon and hide it and be ready with ammo.

    The public has to be divided as much as possible in order to keep them distracted from the guiding hand of the cabal itself.

    If you’re going to say that, then:

    Can you give us a link to a single concise proof that such a cabal exists? If not, here is one.
    Are you willing and able to slow them down by outing the individual perpetrators (not their front men) and each perpetrator’s crimes against humanity?

    Search for ‘hub and spoke network’.

    A market is a hub and spoke network you see.

    Notice all the connections to the hub. The bigger the market, the more connections the hub has. The spokes always only have 1.

    In an economic system both the hubs and spokes make a little money from each connection. The spokes make a little money. The hubs make a lot of money.

    This is the Pareto distribution.

    So, from the hub’s point of view, a bigger market is much better than a small one.

    This is globalism.

    The various hubs are competitors, but for any individual market, one will dominate.

    World domination is the goal.

    Inequality between the hubs and spokes then is driven by market size. One large market will have far less competition and far more inequality than many small markets.

    In reality, markets approximate to countries and currencies…. legislative areas.

    So. Prefer many smaller countries. Smaller states over fewer larger ones. And more than anything else… Prefer and encourage local currencies, even at village, town, city level.

    This is localism.

    This is a scoop to bring the US biological warfare effort back into the spotlight. On Sept. 11, Russian media reported that the Richard Lugar Center for Public Health Research laboratory, a research facility for high-level biohazard agents located near Tbilisi, Georgia, has used human beings for conducting biological experiments.

    Former Minister of State Security of Georgia Igor Giorgadze said about it during a news conference in Moscow, urging US President Donald Trump to launch an investigation. He has lists of Georgians who died of hepatitis after undergoing treatment in the facility in 2015 and 2016. Many passed away on the same day. The declassified documents contain neither the indication of the causes of deaths nor real names of the deceased. According to him, the secret lab run by the US military was established during the tenure of former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili. The viruses could spread to neighboring countries, including Russia, Igor Giorgadze warned.

    The laboratory’s work is tightly under wraps. Only US personnel with security clearance have access to it. These people are accorded diplomatic immunity under the 2002 US-Georgia Agreement on defense cooperation.

    Eurasia Review reported that in 2014 the Lugar Center was equipped with a special plant for breeding insects to enable launching the Sand Fly project in Georgia and the Caucasus. In 2014-2015 years, the bites of sand flies such as Phlebotomins caused a fever. According to the source, “today the Pentagon has a great interest to the study of Tularemia, also known as the fever of rabbits, which is also equated with biological weapons. Distributors of such a disease can be mites and rodents”.

    Around 76 million years ago, a massive herd of the horned dinosaur Centrosaurus died in what is now Alberta, Canada. While they were still alive, these creatures, like all other animals, would have had trillions of microbes living inside their bodies and on their skin. And even now, long after their demise, their remains still harbor life.

    Within pieces of fossilized bone from a newly uncovered Centrosaurus, scientists led by Evan Saitta from the Field Museum have found a thriving community of unusual bacteria. These aren’t ancient microbes, but modern ones that infiltrated the fossils and survived on the water and minerals inside them. “The bones provide a refuge,” Saitta says. They are porous, and so “have space for the microbes to proliferate. They’re full of phosphate and iron. They can wick up moisture.”

    When animals die, waves of microbes consume their corpses. Scientists have looked at how this “necrobiome” changes over the hours and days after an animal perishes. But Saitta’s work suggests that microbes continue to colonize cadavers long after their flesh has decayed, after their bones have turned to stone, and after they’ve been buried several miles deep for millions of years.

    A new analysis of global forest loss—the first to examine not only where forests are disappearing, but also why—reveals just how much industrial agriculture is contributing to the loss. The answer: some 5 million hectares—the area of Costa Rica—every year. And despite years of pledges by companies to help reduce deforestation, the amount of forest cleared to plant oil palm and other booming crops remained steady between 2001 and 2015.

    The finding is “a really big deal,” says tropical ecologist Daniel Nepstad, director of the Earth Innovation Institute, an environmental nonprofit in San Francisco, California, because it suggests that corporate commitments alone are not going to adequately protect forests from expanding agriculture.

    Researchers already had a detailed global picture of forest loss and regrowth. In 2013, a team led by Matthew Hansen, a remote-sensing expert at the University of Maryland in College Park, published high-resolution maps of forest change between 2000 and 2012 from satellite imagery. But the maps, available online, didn’t reveal where deforestation—the permanent loss of forest—was taking place.

    She called on Congress to condemn what she called the Trump Administration’s protection of al-Qaeda in Idlib and slammed Washington’s policies in Syria as “a betrayal of the American people” — especially the victims and families that perished on 9/11.

    I’m inclined to trust Tulsi Gabbard. Of course she is a politician, and so is careful about things she does and does not say. You are right to be suspicious about ‘peace candidates’. Anyway, you could write to her asking for an explanation of her CFR membership.

    I’m still open to the slim possibility, despite everything to the contrary, that Trump would in his heart of hearts like to win his country back from the Jews. If so, it cannot be a straightforward path. And Tulsi Gabbard calling him out on the war in Syria might give him some slight help in being able to resist Neocon maneuvering.

    The Russians (and the Chinese) after telegraphing their huge message with their unprecedented war games including repeated shows of nuclear bombers near Alaska, cannot back down now. If Trump goes ahead with anything real in his defense of al Qaeda, there will be a sunk aircraft carrier. If humanity is not wiped out at that point, Trump will be impeached for it. By the Neocons. Trump is in a really tough spot. A new statement by Jeffrey Sachs or one of the big financial Jews who do not put Israel before money would be helpful. Right now Gabbard’s statement is all Trump has against the Neocon war (assuming he is not a Neocon at heart himself).

    Washington’s threats to take military action to deter a Syrian assault on Al-Qaeda-held Idlib province has prompted Fox News host Tucker Carlson to ask the obvious question: Why would the US bomb a country to protect terrorists?
    Carlson marveled at how 17 years after the September 11 terrorist attacks, the US was now using its military might to shield – rather than eradicate – Al-Qaeda.

    “More than 10,000 rebels in that province are believed to be aligned with Al-Qaeda. So that would mean that 17 years after 9/11, America could soon find itself bombing a country to protect Al-Qaeda sympathizers. Why would we do that?” Carlson asked.

    His sentiments echo a similar observation made by Democratic Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, who marked the 17th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks by pointing out the troubling double standard on display by the Trump administration.

    “While President Trump & VP Pence give 9/11 speeches about how much they care about the victims of al-Qaeda’s attack on our country, they are simultaneously acting as protectors of AQ in Syria/Idlib, threatening Russia and Syria that if they attack al-Qaeda, we will punish them,” Gabbard tweeted.

Moscow is certainly aware of the correlation of forces. Moscow is talking to everybody. The clearing out of the south was accomplished with very little fighting: most of it seems to have been pre-negotiated. Russians are masters of deception in war. So I suspect that the West is being played and that what, how and when will, again, surprise the punditocracy. But it is a very dangerous situation and, as VIPS says to Trump: “The best way to assure Mr. Putin that you are in control of U.S. policy toward Syria would be for you to seek an early opportunity to speak out publicly, spelling out your intentions. If you wish wider war, Bolton has put you on the right path.” Watch this video and decide who runs State. As always, the most important question is who’s in charge in Washington? Well, maybe the truth is leaking: go to 4:2; the Netherlands awakes.

    Amid all the hoopla and confetti, however, a growing number of scientists are advising caution. They’re not denying the importance of the find; the fossils, they say, are invaluable. But they contend that the bones may not represent a new species. The evidence these skeptics point to suggests that the finds may actually be bones from Homo erectus, the earliest known hominid to manifest the general proportions, stance and gait of modern humans. H. erectus had a long tenure on the planet, living from about 2 million to 70,000 years ago. The species was widely distributed (from Africa to East Asia and possibly southern Europe), used tools and fire, and may have constructed rafts to cross wide bodies of water.

    By virtue of his scholarly bona fides, Berkeley paleoanthropologist Tim White seems the default, if somewhat reluctant, lead spokesman for the H. naledi contrarians. White worked with Richard Leakey in Kenya and Mary Leakey in Tanzania. In 1994, as a co-director of the Middle Awash Project in Ethiopia, White and his fellow researchers unearthed a fossilized partial female skeleton of Ardipithecus ramidus; at 4.4 million years of age, “Ardi” is the oldest know human antecedent. Two years later, White and his fellow researchers discovered fossils from Australopithecus garhi, a 2.5-million-year-old hominid who was contemporaneous with the earliest known use of stone tools.

    And to White’s eye, Berger’s findings are probably South African representatives of Homo erectus. The Homo naledi cranium is similar in conformation and size to the earliest and most primitive Homo erectus representatives, White said.
