The enigma that is Przybylski's Star

icon-mk-telescope
In this last year, I've been writing quite a bit about Dr Paul LaViolette's sub-quantum kinetics theory. I find it a fascinating and convincing new theoretical description of how matter forms in our universe. The theory explains a lot of enigmas and anomalies that our current, official, physical theories seem to have swept under the carpet.

For example, as I've mentioned before in articles examining the Big Bang Theory (not the TV series), the Big Bang is an impossible theory. It fails, for starters, because of several key paradoxes, such as the Baryon Asymmetry Problem and Boltzmann's Well-Ordered Universe Problem. The physics community has spent decades trying to solve these paradoxes and failed. They should, by rights, accept that the theory is fundamentally flawed.

Sub-quantum kinetics agrees that the Big Bang is an impossible theory. It shows a different situation, that our universe is in fact static in size. New matter comes into being in gravity wells created by agglomerations of existing matter. This approach does not suffer the problem of the Baryon Asymmetry Paradox, as it shows that matter is far more likely to occur than anti-matter (whereas conventional physics says they're equally likely to appear from the vacuum and should do so together).

Many physicists do not like the idea of new matter appearing in our universe. They would point out that any theory that involves the continual creation of new matter in our universe would break the rule of Conservation of Energy, but in fact that Law can only be relevant in reactions and collisions. We know that to be true because if we applied it to our entire universe, our universe could never have appeared out of nothing in the first place! Our whole universe demonstrates to us that the Conservation of Energy cannot be true at universal scales.

Sub-quantum kinetics theory of continual matter creation has many interesting consequences. One of them is that our science establishment's model of star formation is effectively back-to-front. According to Official Physics, our universe started with vast amounts of energy and gas, these coalesced under gravity, causing early, very bright stars to form. As time has gone on, these stars have aged and grown cooler, burning away the fuel they initially possessed. Because, according to Official Physics, no new matter and/or energy can have entered the universe since the Big Bang, all the stars in our universe will eventually go cold and dark, an ending known as the Heat Death of the Universe.

But sub-quantum kinetics shows that in fact the opposite is going on. Our universe started with no matter but then it began appearing, growing and seeding from initial points, causing more matter to steadily appeared within the existing gravity-wells. Gas giants formed, which then grew until they became stars. These stars got progressively larger and brighter. Some overloaded and exploded, shedding energy and matter, an event described in LaViolette's book Earth Under Fire. Others grew so large that they became quasars, super-massive stars that astronomers have detected at the centre of galaxies.

sun-composition

Along with this back-to-front version of stellar life-cycles, sub-quantum kinetics also describes a very different process occurring in the heart of stars. Conventional physics tells us that no elements larger than iron can be present in the heart of stars. This is because all elements larger than iron shed more energy when they break down (fission) compared to when they're formed (fusion). As a result, such larger elements will effectively 'slide back down' to iron; it is the effective limit of atomic formation in a star. This is why, according to the official theories, all elements larger than iron are only created in supernova. Therefore, if the Official Physics Theory is correct, then there should be no stable stars out there in our universe that contain any significant amounts of any element larger than iron. There would certainly be some trace amounts of larger elements in stars, but they would only be temporary and in minuscule amounts.

By comparison, sub-quantum kinetics tells us that the centre of stars are a very active area of new matter creation. This continual new input of matter and energy drives the creation of larger elements from smaller ones, akin to them being bombarded with neutrons. Atomic fission is also occurring in the centre of these stars, but there is so much fresh matter appearing that it causes a steady, net increase in atomic sizes. Eventually, the star will contain large amounts of massive atoms such as uranium, atoms so large that they are on the edge of atomic stability. Eventually, that state ends, as the star grows so large that some sort of atomic collapse occurs. In a massive atomic collapse, it transforms into a star made of collapsed matter, such as the so-called Hyperon Stars. Stars that haven't reached that point, and are still in the phase just described, of possessing large amounts of massive elements, would be rare compared to younger stars, especially at the outer edges of galaxies, but they would exist. Ironically (ahem), such stars would actually have relatively low amounts of iron as the iron within them would be constantly transmuted into larger elements by the influx of new matter.

Therefore, we can perform a simple test to check which is right, sub-quantum kinetics or the conventional, Standard Model of Physics. If we can find a stable star that contains huge atoms such as uranium, which is an impossible situation according to conventional physics, then sub-quantum physics is correct, or at least it's worthy much greater status, and Standard Physics is wrong, or at least deeply flawed. If we cannot find any such 'heavy-element' stars in our universe then Standard Physics is safe and sub-quantum kinetics should rightfully be seen as an interesting but flawed theory. Place your bets…

anomalous-star
In fact, there is such an anomalous star. To quote from the Wikipedia page, "Przybylski's Star or HD 101065, is a rapidly oscillating Ap star that is located at a distance of roughly 355 light-years (109 parsecs) from the Sun in the southern constellation of Centaurus.In 1961, the Polish-Australian astronomer Antoni Przybylski discovered that this star had a peculiar spectrum that would not fit into the standard framework for stellar classification. Przybylski's observations indicated unusually low amounts of iron and nickel in the star's spectrum, but higher amounts of unusual elements like strontium, holmium, niobium, scandium, yttrium, caesium, neodymium, praseodymium, thorium, ytterbium, and uranium. In fact, at first Przybylski doubted that iron was present in the spectrum at all. Modern work shows that the iron-group elements are somewhat below normal in abundance, but it is clear that the lanthanides and other exotic elements are highly overabundant. Lanthanide elements are from 1000 to 10,000 times more abundant than in the Sun. As a result of these peculiar abundances this star belongs firmly in the Ap star class. Przybylski's Star also contains many different short-lived actinide elements with actinium, protactinium, neptunium, plutonium, americium, curium, berkelium, californium, and einsteinium being detected. Other radioactive elements discovered in this star include technetium and promethium."

I think it's high time there was a fundamental overhauling of conventional physics.

Postscript:

A few months ago, I passed on my research into 'Gobekli Tepe, the Fox and the End of Days' to Dr LaViolette on his website at http://etheric.com/questions-and-answers and he very kindly replied and thanked me. As he is clearly happy to correspond, I told him about Przybylski's Star as well, and how it seems to support sub-quantum kinetics. Dr LaViolette has replied to that message as well. He says:

"Yes, you are right. Przybylski’s star refutes standard theory and confirms SQK. Thank you for bringing it to our attention."

Which is good news, as I'd hate to be talking about his theories and getting the science all wrong. Phew! :-)


Memory of water documentary

icon-mk-microscope
This blog entry is just to let everyone know that there is a very good documentary about the research work of Dr Benveniste and Dr Luc Montagnier on Youtube at the moment. I've written about Luc Montagnier before, when exploring the science behind homeopathy, and how the memory of water theory links to DNA's fascinating property of acting as a fractal antennae, both receiving and sending electromagnetic signals of different frequencies. Up to now, I've only encountered information about Dr Montagnier in the pages of New Scientist magazine, and so it's been great to watch a documentary in which he explains his work, his theories and what he discovered. Here it is:



As the documentary explains, Benveniste and Montagnier's work was pilloried by the scientific establishment and publicly declared to be bunk, and yet in the documentary, Montagnier proves that water does have an electromagnetic memory.

Climate Change scientists' thoughts on the future

icon-mk-burning-earth
Climate change is accelerating on Earth. Its acceleration is clear here in London, where the temperature yesterday was 22 degrees Celsius. Normally, a Mid-October day in London should be cold (around 12-14 degrees) with rain; it would be time to put on the coat and scarf and dig out a pair of gloves. Instead, it was so warm yesterday that I had to take my summer shorts out of my winter storage bag and put them back on again. This is just one more day in a year, in London, of frankly bizarre weather. After a weirdly freezing March, a drought set in in the South-East of England because a weather system stayed over Ireland and Western Scotland, funnelling warm air to the hot Arctic. That weather system, created by a virtually stationary jet-stream, left London and the South-East of England to bake for months. Although hurricanes are getting the headlines, with good reason, I think 2018's weather in England is just as ominous an event.

Big brains, baldness and a hybrid

icon-mk-brain
A while back, I read a very interesting scientific paper published in the prestigious science journal Cell. The authors of the paper studied the differences in the DNA between humans, primates and rodents, all mammals but species with significantly different behaviour. The authors found that the genetic changes needed for humans to have their bigger brains, and for those brains to work, include an extensive and specialised set of genetic alterations. What's more, humans have gained all those required genetic changes in a very short time, genetically speaking.

What especially caught my eye in this paper was how often the word 'remarkable' was used. Scientific papers are almost always dry, sober reports, their authors do not want to sound emotional and flighty, and so it is illuminating that the authors saying remarkable in two particular paragraphs. Here they are:

“It has long been noted that brains of various extant and extinct primates display remarkable variation in size, organization, and behavioral output (Noback and Montagna, 1970; Armstrong and Falk, 1982; Byrne and Whiten, 1988; Matsuzawa, 2001). This is particularly true for the evolutionary lineage leading from ancestral primates to humans, in which the increase in brain size and complexity was remarkably rapid and persistent throughout the lineage (Jerison, 1973; Walker et al., 1983).” Page 1.

“It is remarkable that 17 out of the 24 primate-fast outliers [rare or exceptional genetic changes] are linked to the regulation of either brain size or behavior.”

The third ‘remarkable’ is of special significance, for it touches upon a very strange story.

darwin-ape-240px
According to the official line, based on Darwin's Theory of Evolution, homo sapiens (us) naturally evolved from Homo Erectus in about one million years. They in turn evolved from Homo Erectus in about one million years. Homo Erectus had a brain capacity of 850 cm³ and Homo Habilis had a brain capacity of 600 cm³. Chimpanzees have a brain capacity of up to 500 cm³. Humans, the last in line of these species, have a brain capacity of roughly 1400 cm³.

This sounds, at first glance, to be a reasonable progress of development. Bigger brains enable tool use, group coordination, planning etc. The only problem is that the odds of gaining the required genetic changes to have these big brains through natural selection, in the time described, are vanishingly small.

DNA, fractal antennae and Sirius

icon-mk-microscope
Last week, I stumbled upon a science paper published in the International Journal in Radiation Biology, entitled ‘DNA is a fractal antenna in electromagnetic fields’. The paper’s abstract (or concise overview) is as follows:

DNA-250px
PURPOSE: To review the responses of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) to electromagnetic fields (EMF) in different frequency ranges, and characterise the properties of DNA as an antenna.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: We examined published reports of increased stress protein levels and DNA strand breaks due to EMF interactions, both of which are indicative of DNA damage. We also considered antenna properties such as electronic conduction within DNA and its compact structure in the nucleus.

RESULTS: EMF interactions with DNA are similar over a range of non-ionising frequencies, i.e., extremely low frequency (ELF) and radio frequency (RF) ranges. There are similar effects in the ionising range, but the reactions are more complex.

CONCLUSIONS: The wide frequency range of interaction with EMF is the functional characteristic of a fractal antenna, and DNA appears to possess the two structural characteristics of fractal antennas, electronic conduction and self symmetry. These properties contribute to greater reactivity of DNA with EMF in the environment, and the DNA damage could account for increases in cancer epidemiology, as well as variations in the rate of chemical evolution in early geologic history.


In other words, the researchers found that DNA is a lot like a radio antenna, in that it can pick up electromagnetic signals, which then alter its behaviour. What’s more, DNA also has loops within loops, which means it can pick up electromagnetic signals in multiple frequencies.

fractal-antenna
Fractal antennae are used in the telecommunications industry because such a design enables an antenna to be compact and also be able to respond to multiple frequencies. Traditional antennae were usually designed, and built, to pick up a narrow range of signals, which was often all that was needed. In the modern world of complex multi-band transmission, fractal antennae are a very tempting, space-saving and multi-tasking alternative.

There are many thought-provoking potential consequences to our DNA being fractal antennae. For starters, as the above paper mentions, there are ‘published reports of increased stress protein levels and DNA strand breaks due to EMF interactions, both of which are indicative of DNA damage.’ In other words, there’s evidence that our DNA is very sensitive to e/m signals and will actually suffer damage if the wrong signals are beamed at it. There is an awful lot of radio-frequency traffic in our world today, particular from wireless or phone masts, and there’s evidence that it’s not good for biological organisms, as this science paper states. To be honest, the logical thing to do would be to develop a full understanding of radio-frequency signals on the DNA of living creatures first, and then stick up masts everywhere, but that’s clearly not happening.

There is another thought-provoking consequence to the above paper, something that no one has talked about yet, as far as I know. According to the science paper mentioned at the beginning of this article, DNA is surprisingly good at picking up RF and ELF signals and then altering its own functioning as a result. Not surprisingly, hitting DNA with crude or random RF signals of high intensity will trigger damage within the DNA. This is a lot like hitting a set of skilfully arrange tuning forks with very loud notes of random frequency. A lot of the time nothing will happen and some of the time a fork will overload and smash to bits.

But what if we knew exactly what RF signals to send? If that was the case, we could beam a host of carefully chosen RF signals at the DNA and it wouldn’t just do nothing, or break. Would it instead play like a musical instrument? Would it alter its genetic information in a specific way? Would it produce specific proteins, neurotransmitters or perhaps even viruses? Read More...

'You can't tell the people' - UFO book review

icon-mk-collection
A while back, I reviewed a couple of books on possibly the most famous UFO incident in the U.K. the Rendlesham Forest incident. According to many witnesses and military memoranda released under the Freedom of Information Act, an unidentified craft of mysterious design and using even stranger technology visited the Rendlesham Forest on the edge of a U.S. Air force base in Suffolk, England in the Christmas week in 1980. It either crash-landed or crashed and then landed in those pine woods in the middle of the night, causing a major alert involving the U.S. Air Force, the Suffolk police, local villagers and others.

you-cant-tell-the-people-bruni
All the books I’ve read so far about the incident have been interesting. 'Left at East Gate' by Larry Warren, is a very interesting and personal account of the event by someone who experienced it, but it isn’t a comprehensive study, more of an autobiography. The best book on the incident, I think, is ‘You can’t tell the people’ by Georgina Bruni.

You Can’t Tell the People is a big book and there were several times when I skimmed pages. Bruni is very thorough in her investigation and clearly talks to many of the key players many times as she gathers the relevant evidence. It’s easy to lose count of the number of senior military, police and civilian figures she talks to. Eventually, it becomes obvious that certain things happened in Rendlesham Forest on the last week of 1980: Read More...

New sci-fi short story - 'Tags'

icon-mk-microscope
Just a quick note to say that I've added a new science-fiction short story called 'Tags' to this website. In the story, a UK professor, working in a top-secret government lab, discovers one night that the star 'Sirius', normally calm and blue-white in the sky, has somehow turned red and flaming. He's immediately called back to his lab because his bosses have discovered something else, that the star's red and flaming light is an interstellar laser beam that a civilisation on a planet around the star has fired at Earth. What's even more important is that the laser beam has carried a virus to Earth.

The story draws upon two non-fiction articles I've written and published on this website, Laser beam from Sirius and Evolution and Alien Viruses. Hope you enjoy it! :-)

Electromagnetic resonance of the Great Pyramid

icon-mk-osiris
Last month, a scientific paper was published in the Journal of Applied Physics that showed that the Great Pyramid concentrates and resonates electromagnetic radiation, in particular radio waves in the 250m-wavelength range. The authors, Mikhail Balezin, Kseniia V. Baryshnikova, Polina Kapitanova, and Andrey B. Evlyukhin explain in their paper that by modelling the Great Pyramid, in an albeit simplified form, they found that it naturally can 'collect and concentrate electromagnetic energy'. The image below shows the results of the modelling and how the e-m radiation intensifies within and beneath the pyramid.

Gobekli Tepe, the Fox and the End of Days

icon-mk-blazing-star
Gobekli Tepe is a strange, ancient, enigmatic temple in Turkey. According to the evidence, it was constructed in 8,000 BC or thereabouts, long before Sumer even officially began as a civilisation. The site consists of a series of sunken, circular chambers or pits, containing upright stone blocks, most placed around the edge of the pit but a few placed in the centre of the pit. The structure of Gobekli Tepe indicates that it was an astronomical observatory, similar to Stonehenge.

pillar-43-vulture-300px
Recently, Dr Martin Sweatman published a scientific paper that puts forward the idea that one of the stones at Gobekli Tepe, popularly referred to as the Vulture Stone, does in fact mark a date in our calendar. The stone contains several animals, seemingly positioned carefully around a globe. Drawing upon theories developed by Andrew Collins, Sweatman confirms that if the central globe in the Vulture Stone carving is assumed to be the sun and the animals around it represent certain constellations, then the Vulture Stone relief is marking a particular date in history. This is possible to do because the stars in our sky change their positions over millennia, due to celestial precession, performing a great circle in the sky every 25,800 years. Once we know that, we pinpoint the date that such an alignment would occur.

The date that Sweatman (and Collins) think the Vulture Stone is marking is 10,900 BC. This is a very important date because it is the date of the Younger Dryas Impact Event, when a cloud of meteorites is said to have hit the Earth, causing massive wildfires and a sudden cooling of our planet, which extended our ice-age another thousand years-or-so, before its final, catastrophic ending in 9,650 BC.

I recently wrote an article explaining how the Great Sphinx could also be a physical marker of the Younger Dryas Impact Event. The Great Sphinx was probably a Great Lion originally, and its positioning, in relation to celestial alignment, indicates that it was built to mark the date 10,900 BC, the dawning of the Age of Leo. It therefore seems that at least one ancient civilisation wanted to tell us how important 10,900 BC was in the history of our species and that of Earth. If the Younger Dryas Impact theory is correct, this is understandable, as that ancient date was when a global, cataclysmic event occurred. Read More...

The Great Sphinx and the Younger Dryas

icon-mk-osiris
The Great Sphinx, located on the Giza Plateau in Egypt, is a wondrous and enigmatic sculpture. Officially, it was constructed for the pharaoh Khafre in around 2500 BC, at the same time as the middle of the Giza pyramids, but there is very little evidence to support this theory. An alternative theory, developed by Dr Robert Schoch, is that the Great Sphinx was built much further back in time. He bases this theory on the way the stone around the Sphinx’s enclosure has been weathered. According to his analysis and those of consultants, the weathering of the stone has clearly been done by a lot of water falling on the stone, or lapping up against it, or both. If this is correct, then the Sphinx must have been constructed at least eight-thousand years ago, when Egypt was a wet and temperate area, before Earth’s changing climate turned it to desert.

Here is a very-well-produced documentary by the Gaia YouTube channel, describing Schoch’s theory:



After explaining Schoch’s theory, the programme-makers then put forward the idea that the Great Sphinx was originally a lion, and that the human was created later, carved out of the existing animal’s head. This seems a very reasonable idea; the current human head is clearly out of proportion to the rest of the sculpture and looks to have been a later modification.

Great_Sphinx_of_Giza_May_2015


The programme makers then point out that the sculpture is aligned to point directly at the constellation of Leo at the Spring Equinox in the zodiacal Age of Leo, around twelve-and-a-half thousand years ago. Unfortunately, the programme does then drift into some speculation, with talk of portals and channelled messages from aliens etc. All of this is possible but there is no solid evidence to back it up, and so it is of no use when creating a scientific theory.

Fortunately, other scientific evidence from our past, when combined with Schoch’s theory, can create a new theory of the Sphinx’s purpose. As with the other theories on my website, such as the Great Pyramid and 2787 BC, the Sirius Red Controversy, the Greek Myths and the Ark of the Covenant, I’m going to combine solid scientific evidence and logic to create a possible solution to the mystery of the Sphinx.

Flouride and IQ

icon-mk-microscope
As a follow-on from my earlier article about Flouride, 'The Jekyll and Hyde of Flouride', I recommend this interesting video on the issues around the fluoridation of water. As I explained in my earlier article, Flouride applied to the teeth does leave a calcified layer, which can prevent some tooth decay, but it also blocks up the holes that enable the nerves in our teeth to detect sugar, heat, cold, acids and other things toxic to our body. It therefore shuts off the natural alarm signals we receive from our teeth when we ingest sugary, acidic, holt or cold food and drink. Not good.

icon-mk-brain
This video focuses on a related matter; the fluoridation of water supplies. It points out that there is no scientific evidence that flouridation of water improves the health of our teeth. Unfortunately, flouridation does have proven negative effects on our body, and in particular, our pineal gland and our brain function. Here's the video:



Yugas, giants and a one-legged cow

icon-mk-burning-earth
Several of the most ancient cultures on our planet, in particular as Hinduism, explain that Earth and the human races go through a grand cycle. The Hindus call this cycle the Yugas. They believe that our world goes through a cycle of four Yugas, or ages, and during these ages, mankind diminishes. We start out as gentle, spiritual giants but as time passes, we shrink in size, then become divided and hostile to each other. Our life-spans diminish and our morality degrades. Finally, at the end of the fourth Yuga, known as the Kali Yuga (after the god Kali, a god of violence and war) catastrophe falls upon everyone on Earth. This catastrophe both destroys everything but also wipes the slate clean and allows for a new cycle to begin.

kali-2
Hinduism often symbolically represents this decay as the suffering of Dharma, a goddess portrayed as an Indian cow. In Satya Yuga, the first stage of development, the cow has four legs, but in each age, as morality is reduced by one quarter, she loses a leg. By the age of Kali, morality is reduced to only a quarter of that of the golden age, so the bull of Dharma has only one leg.

I’ve encountered the Hindu belief in the Yugas before but I didn’t study it because of several views I had at that time:

1) In the West, we’re always told that our history is one of development from nothing and that it will simply go on forever in a positive direction. This is drilled into us in our school lessons, in media articles predicting the future, in our politicians and scientists’ speeches, in our science-fiction, etc. It’s a tempting and plausible viewpoint.

2) I could see no indication that there was anything on Earth or in the cosmos that would drive the cycle of destruction and rebirth described in the Yugas. Our human race will certainly go through cycles of self-inflicted boom and bust but these, I thought, most likely won’t be total destruction and they won’t follow a regular pattern. Natural disasters that devastate us also won’t follow a regular pattern but be random events. History tells us that this happened in our past, so our future should unroll in the same way.

3) The time spans described in the Yugas are huge. To quote Wikipedia, ‘Most interpreters of vedic scriptures, as Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Goswami and his recent disciple Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada believe that Earth is currently in Kali Yuga and lasts 432,000 years.’ Nearly half a million years is a very long time, too long to feel that its changes are imminent or recent.

4) I could see no reason to believe that, from the ashes of a massive destruction, a new race of humans would emerge that were physically, mentally and spiritually superior to the humans living before that destruction. It would seem more likely that the survivors would be worse, not better.

The above four points, put together, seem to make a convincing case that the Yugas, a cycle of destruction and rebirth, of a slow disintegration of qualities in humanity that is only halted by a massive, global catastrophe, is a ludicrous idea.

But my more recent research has made me think again. The reason for this can be explained in the following steps: Read More...

June 2019 - Gravity Wave

icon-mk-burning-earth
Last November, I explained in the article 'predictions of our future' that I'd had a recurring dream which seemed to indicate that a massive eruption was going to occur in June 2019. I've never made a prediction before and it was only a recurring dream, but I feel duty-bound to talk about it. The event I saw in my dream, that a massive volcanic eruption would occur in the first few days of June 2019, does fit with predictions made by other groups on our planet, in particular the Hopi Indians, Australian Aboriginal tribes and others. A recent nexus-magazine conference in Australia includes a talk by several Aboriginal elders who state that the End Times could occur within two years, but I haven't yet been able to get a record of their talk, so I've little idea of how well it correlates with other reports. It could be truly prophetic, it could be random anxiety, I don't yet know. The organisers also report that thousands of Australians have had prophetic dreams of a massive tidal-wave hitting their East Coast but again, this could be similar to a spreading rumour.

earth-under-fire-laviolette-240px
The idea that our planet might suffer a terrible eruption, followed by a vast amount of dark dust-smoke (as seen in my dream) also fits with a theory developed by Dr LaViolette. [In case any readers think my recurring dream was influenced by his book, I read his book after I had my dreams; it was the strange similarity between the book and my dreams that caused me to write my first article on the subject.]

Dr LaViolette postulates that our galaxy's centre does not contain black holes, as per the current civilian scientific view, but instead contains extremely active stars that periodically burst out vast waves of particles and energy. This theory is explained in detail in his book Earth Under Fire. He explains that the reason our planet has a precessional cycle of roughly 26,000 years is because these periodic bursts occur every 26,000 years, and to a smaller extent in simple fractions of that time, and these bursts have entrained our planets precession movement, like someone periodically pushing or pulling on a spinning top to encourage it to oscillate with a certain frequency. 26,000 years might seem like a long gap between pulls but, for example, if the age of our solar system was a year, it would be a pull every three seconds.

According to Dr LaViolette, this periodic 'flick' that entrains our planet's precessional cycle, known to the Ancient Greeks as a Great Year, occurs through a gravity wave. The periodic, massive energy burst from the centre of our galaxy contains both a high-energy particle component, a high-energy electromagnetic radiation component and an intense gravity wave. As he explains in his book, Earth Under Fire, we received such a blast about 12,800 years, half a precessional cycle ago. This blast brought disastrous conditions to our planet, including a bombardment of meteorites and vast amounts of black, interstellar dust pushed into the inner part of our solar system, dust that is usually kept away by the solar wind. He believes that this event is synonymous with the Younger Dryas Impact event and it brought a period of abrupt cooling to our planet, lasting a thousand years, before our ice-age cataclysmically ended about 9,800 years ago.

Revisiting the Disclosures interviews

icon-mk-telebot-reading
One big problem with trying to find out what's really going on in the world, and how everything actually works, is having to wade the through misguided, incompetent theories and flat-out lies. Unfortunately, this is probably inevitable. Since Knowledge is Power, those that possess most of the money in the world will logically try to accumulate all the knowledge, then hide it from everyone else. They'll also pay people to lie and make up spurious theories to distract everyone else from that truth. They'll also do their best to encourage false theories created by others, and discourage correct theories from reaching a large audience.

The net effect of such a strategy would be that the greater the media exposure of a controversial theory, the more likely that it's wrong. This situation also creates a sad side-effect; intelligent readers who only look at the most well-known theories will rapidly see that they're false and conclude the whole area is bunk, when in fact important and correct theories do exist, they're just being ignored and/or suppressed.

icon-mk-osiris
For example, it's relatively straightforward to work out that the Great Pyramid was built to fire a ray of light at Alpha Draconis (Thuban) as it moved on to the celestial North Pole in 2787 BC and yet no one talks about this idea in the mainstream media. By comparison, other theories about the Great Pyramid, based on debatable clues that have no connection to Alpha Draconis and 2787 BC, are more popular and strongly promoted. This is a shame, as the Great Pyramid's design and purpose, if rationally investigated scientifically, could positively transform our understanding of many key areas of our knowledge. I've talked before about what the Great Pyramid says about life and death and the human spirit, particularly in my graphic novel. It also tells us a lot about the massive power source present in our planet that we seem to making no effort to harness. Then again, it's possible that some top secrets groups probably are working on harnessing its power, they're just not telling us. This article is about such clandestine research and discoveries; what have these powerful groups found? Read More...

Stranger Things and the Montauk Project

icon-mk-brain
One very successful television series of the last few years has been 'Stranger Things', a thriller-supernatural series centred around several kids who encounter the results of strange experiments being carried out at a base outside their American town. The series has adopted the style of famous books and television series of the eighties, especially those by Steven Spielberg and Stephen King. This combination of up-to-date special effects, a 'conspiracy theory' style plot and the classic eighties vibe, which is very much in fashion at the moment (Ready Player One being a good example) has made the series very successful. This article is all about where they seem to have got the psychic, supernatural, conspiracy-theory ideas for that series.

Stranger_Things_Book_Cover_Original_Pitch
When the Duffer Brothers originally pitched the series to the producers in Hollywood, they called it 'Montauk'. They created the image opposite as part of their presentation, including the sinister tower in the distance. To quote from the Wikipedia page for Stranger Things:

The series was originally known as Montauk, as the setting of the script was in Montauk, New York and nearby Long Island locations. The brothers had chosen Montauk as it had further Spielberg ties with the film Jaws, where Montauk was used for the fictional setting of Amity Island.


I find this explanation hard to believe, for Montauk Air Force Base, in the Eastern coast of the United States, was already famous among aficionados of conspiracy theories for exactly the kind of experiments that take place in the series. According to some, secret experiments took place underground there in the late Seventies that succeeded in doing all sorts of dark and very strange things.

Sample chapters for 'Amber Robots' sci-fi novel

icon-mk-odd-alien1
I have now finished my science-fiction comedy novel 'The Amber Robots of Loving Death'. This novel has been through many incarnations but I'm now perfectly happy with it. I'd describe it as an accessible, though-provoking, fun science-fiction novel for adults. If you'd like to read the first three chapters, here's the file as a pdf. I don't have a publisher for it yet but I'll post any relevant news on this blog as and when.

Here's the first three paragraph:

One million years ago, in the Western Spiral Arm of the Milky Way, there was a beautiful solar system consisting of a golden sun, circled by ten majestic planets. On the system’s third planet lived a race called the Floo. They were highly advanced and had reached the stage in their development where they no longer cared about technology. Instead, they spent their days thinking deeply about about life, the universe and the very nature of existence.


After a century of thought, the Floo came to a sobering conclusion; life was fundamentally about suffering. To exist was to feel pain, cold, hurt, loneliness, heartache and misery. As the Floo were a compassionate and caring species, they were very upset at this state of affairs. They wanted to end that suffering and help all creatures enduring such torment. Eventually, after much discussion and analysis, they decided what they needed to do; kill everyone.


The Floo went over their reasoning many times, but they could see no flaw in their logic. If they truly cared about the endless suffering of all other living creatures, they should do their best to limit that suffering as much as possible, by ending all life in the universe. They therefore built ten-thousand highly-advanced, near-invulnerable machines known as the Amber Robots of Loving Death, all equipped to travel rapidly through the galaxy, annihilating all life as they went, while doing it in as caring and painless a way as possible. The Floo did accept that some living creatures might not actually want to be killed by homicidal mechanoids, and so they programmed their robots to only kill unhappy people. Unfortunately, this didn’t help much as once everyone in the galaxy had heard about the Amber Robots of Loving Death, the sight of one approaching invariably make the person concerned feel very unhappy indeed, which was exactly the wrong way to be.

One year to go to the BPE

icon-mk-burning-earth
In November of last year, I wrote an article in which I gathered together several predictions of our future. The predictions came from different sources, such as people who had experienced Near Death Experiences, Remote Viewing reports, Hopi Indian predictions and on a personal note, a recurring dream I had that had a lasting effect. All the predictions were surprisingly similar. They stated that climate change, combined with natural events and possibly external sources, would create chaos on Earth, including some kind of huge eruption. The different groups that were reporting these matters did not specify exactly when such calamities would occur, simply that they would occur and in our lifetimes.

psi-spies-cover
My recurring dream was more specific about when these calamities would occur. It made it clear that there would be a huge explosion or eruption right at the beginning of 2019 that would produce large amounts of black smoke. This event would be dramatic but not cataclysmic. Then, in the first few days of June 2019, there would be a cataclysmic eruption of fine, grey ash on Earth. This would be so large that it would spread over the planet. A month later, a vast amount of dark smoke covers everything, and it lasts for years. I was intrigued that this dream correlates well with a remote viewing report described in Jim Marrs book 'Psi Spies' and therefore I've guessed that the massive fine-grey-ash eruption will be from a volcano in the Cascade range.

Solving the Grass-Civilisation riddle

icon-mk-blazing-star
One of the benefits of being in a technological world is that we all get a chance to work out where we’ve come from and how that’s come about. In the past, we simply didn’t have the technological understanding to be able to understand key aspects of our past and origins. Now, we do. Unfortunately, as Francis Bacon pointed out four-hundred years ago, knowledge is power and so we can’t rely on those in power to tell us important facts, as they will naturally keep all important information to themselves. Instead, we have to work it our ourselves from first principles.

320px-Ancient_ziggurat_at_Ali_Air_Base_Iraq_2005

One important fact that we can work out, scientifically, is how civilisation itself came into being on our planet. The official story is that hunter-gatherers in the delta areas of our planet switched from their existing way of life to a life of farming. In other words, they stopped moving around nomadically, gathering seasonal fruits, berries, nuts, eggs, tubers and hunting game. Instead ploughed the land and planted grass crops, such as rice, wheat, barley and oats. According to the official theory, this enabled them to free themselves from barbarity and the uncertainty of nomadic life, while also giving them the chance to settle, store and distribute food and thereby develop all the other aspects of civilisation; writing, pottery, religions, armies etc.

But, to put it bluntly, this official theory is stupid. No set of hunter-gatherers would ever switch from moving around nomadically, gathering the planet’s natural harvests and thereby eating a varied and rich diet, and switch to back-breaking toil to produce a mono-crop of low nutritional value. Grasses are not good food and the work required to plant, grow and harvest them is tortuous in a pre-fossil-fuel society.

Dr Peter Wadhams and SUVs

icon-mk-burning-earth
I do like Dr Peter Wadhams. Not only is he clearly very knowledgeable on climate matters, and has been tirelessly campaigning about climate change for many years, but he comes across as a really good bloke. Here's his witty and rational view of the scourge of SUVs in the Western World.



The video reminds me of a famous quote from H.G.Wells:

"Every time I see an adult on a bicycle, I no longer despair for the future of the human race."


Unfortunately, the flip side is probably true too:

"Every time I see an SUV in the high street, I think we're doomed."

LaViolette 'Subquantum Kinetics' book review

icon-mk-telescope
As promised in an earlier post, I've read Dr Paul LaViolette's book 'Subquantum Kinetics'. As mentioned earlier, I was a little hesitant at buying and reading the book, as it looked to be a demanding read. Fortunately, I persevered and I found it to be an excellent read. There is some challenging physics, at least to someone who only studied it at sixth-form level (or high school level) but it is very readable, clear and extremely interesting.

subquantum-kinetics
LavIolette explains that the problems in quantum physics, relativity and cosmology can be solved by bringing back the idea of an ether, but rather than an inert ether, a simply 'medium' in which light and forces can propagate, Laviolette postulates an active ether. This ether produces fundamental particles through the flow and movement of smaller-scale particles that do not manifest themselves in physical reality, that he calls 'etherons'. The creation of fundamental particles then becomes a process more like chemistry, in the sense that a self-sustaining pattern of particle existence is created similar to the Brusselator process, and these particles' shape is governed by Turing Waves.

Subquantum Kinetics theory - amazon review

icon-mk-telescope
Over this last year, I've read several books by Dr Paul LaViolette, including Earth Under Fire and Secrets of Anti-Gravity Propulsion, as well as viewing some interesting talks with him on youtube. I find his work and his theories fascinating, not only because they take a fresh look at some very important matters in physics and ancient history, but also because he is a very well-qualified physicist and engineer. This makes his ideas and theories worth considering because they come from someone who definitely knows a lot about his subject.

subquantum-kinetics
In truth, I've balked at reading Dr LaViolette's book 'Subquantum Kinetics: A Systems Approach to Physics & Cosmology: 3rd Edition', as it looked pretty heavy going. I do not have a physics or mathematics degree and so I can zonk out if too many equations appear on the page… but I have ordered a copy and I will read it and review it here because I think it's important. What triggered my change of mind was this review on amazon.co.uk by 'Amazon customer Ian' [I've added my own comments in italicised brackets]: Read More...

www.adrianellis.co.uk - progress report

icon-mk-adrian
Here's the latest progress with the strange situation regarding my website 'www.adrianellis.co.uk'. The situation is… that it hasn't changed; it's still strange. There's been no response to my request for clarification from the web hosting provider. Neither has there been any progress in my request to transfer the domain name to another provider. I asked a unix administrator friend of mine to check if I'd made any mistakes with my investigations. He examined my data, conducted the trace routes, digs and whois with me, and confirmed that yes, my website www.adrianellis.co.uk is now associated with an IP address owned by a US cyber-defence contractor. Although I do have a computer science degree, I wanted a second opinion and he was happy to help. To be honest, after finding out who owned the IP address, he seemed remarkably disinterested in investigating further, but he probably thought he'd done enough work as a friendly favour! ;-)

I'll keep trying to move the website to an IP that I do seem to have control over. If I make any progress, I'll post the news on this blog.

Dean Radin 'Real Magic' book review

icon-mk-brain
I've reviewed several of Dr Radin's books over the years, including 'Entangled Minds', 'The Noetic Universe' and 'Supernormal'. All of his books, that I've read, pretty much follow the same path. Dr Radin discusses an aspect of ESP unique to the book, such as magic, meditation, siddhis, remote viewing etc, and then supplies a lot of painstakingly thorough scientific experiments showing that ESP is real. This is all good, although it can get a bit dull reading the same category of experiments repeatedly.

real-magic-radin-cover
Dr Jahn's new book 'Margins of Reality' also covers this area, and although it's important to publish such findings, it isn't exactly page-turning prose. That said, it is an interesting guide to how magic was actually science, for a very long time, during a period when wise minds on Earth were fully aware that minds shaped reality and not the other way around. Isaac Newton, for example, was a 'magician' first and a scientist second, at least in terms of the hours he spent on those two subjects. Radin also makes it clear in the book that we all have the potential to do astonishing mental acts, phenomena generally described as 'magic' or more accurately 'siddhis', if we make enough effort and spend enough time focussing our minds. Wearing a cloak and hat and growing a long beard is purely optional.

For anyone who's never read anything by Dr Radin, I do recommend Real Magic. For those who have read most of his books, it's still good but be prepared for some repetition.

Richard Manning on catastrophic agriculture

icon-mk-burning-earth
Here's a very interesting interview with the writer and environmentalist Richard Manning. In the interview, Richard talks at length about agriculture, its historical origins and the effects it's had on the environment, our planet and ourselves. He has lots to say and makes some very good points, especially the fact that agriculture is effectively anti-nature.



Agriculture is a brutal use of the natural environment to create single crops, usually ones that are carbohydrate or starch based. The clearing of land and the ploughing of the soil erodes and denudes the soil, eventually causing dustbowls, run off, desertification and other habitat collapses. Agriculture is also a system which benefits a few (the owners of the grain) and stunts everyone else (the agricultural labourers). Compared to hunter-gatherers, which have a varied and healthy diet, agricultural communities consist mostly of malnourished people crippled by their diet and the back-breaking labour of ploughing, sowing and reaping. As Jim Marrs said in one of his books, no sane humans who switch from hunter-gathering to farming; It's like going from freedom to chained slavery. The only way humans would have made the switch is if they were forced to make the switch.

I don't agree with everything Richard Manning says in the interview. For example, scientific papers in well-regarded journals have pointed out that the extensive and very specific genetic changes required to turn Homo Habilis into Homo Sapiens cannot possibly have occurred in the time-frame stated in the text books. There are only two solutions to solve that conundrum; humans have been around far, far longer than the official figures (currently 200,000 years) or they did not evolve naturally from Homo Habilis. In other words, we are a hybrid creation.

Apart from that, I fully agreed with most of what Richard said and I definitely recommend the video, although you might find it drags a little after the first half hour.

'The scientist, the madman, the thief and their lightbulb' book review

icon-mk-rocket
One interesting thing to do, nowadays, is to find a second-hand book from an earlier era and see how different it is from the publications sold to us nowadays. What's more, I don't think we have to go back that far to see some significant changes. For example, the book I'm reviewing in this blog post, Keith Tutt's book 'The Scientist, the Madman, the Thief and their Lightbulb' was first published in 2001. That's not very long ago but it felt like a long time when I read a review on its back cover by the New Scientist magazine. It said the following:

'the inventors… could hardly have asked for a better intercessor than Tutt. His vivid, level-headed and engrossing commentary is as entertaining as it is thought-provoking.'


I'm not sure that the New Scientist would be so positive in its view now, since Tutt's book talks extensively about inventors, scientists and engineers who developed new forms of energy creation that don't fit the official scientific view. Their creations were powered by zero-point energy (allegedly), cold fusion (allegedly), free energy from high-voltage, high-charge devices and other seemingly exotic sources. As a formerly avid reader of the New Scientist, I developed a good understanding of its trends and where science journalism in Britain generally was going. As a result, I'd be surprised if they gave the book such a positive review now.

The Garden of Eden unmasked

icon-mk-blazing-star
The Garden of Eden story in Genesis is a very famous tale. In brief, God puts the first two humans, Adam and Even, in a paradise garden, where there is a tree they’ve been told not to eat from:

“The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.” - Genesis 2:15


Dore-Driven-out-of-Eden-320px
The Serpent encourages Eve to eat the forbidden fruit of that tree, even though she’s initially reluctant. She points out to the Serpent that it’ll kill her. The serpent replies:

“You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” - Genesis 3:4


Eve eats the fruit and likes what she’s eaten. She persuades Adam to eat from it. The fruit awakens them to the knowledge that they are naked. God is angry at the Serpent and Adam and Even and banishes them from the Garden.

Many, many of us read this story as children, but some of us must have thought it a bit odd. Questions that leapt into my mind were: ‘what sort of crazy god is that? What kind of a God would put two people in a garden and say ‘eat whatever you like but don’t eat from that tree ‘cos it’ll kill you,’ when, in fact, all it did was make one embarrassed about nudity? What’s more, why on earth would a supposedly compassionate god banish two people because they ate a fruit that made them not want to be starkers? To be honest, the Biblical Garden of Eden story is plain weird. It feels like a messed-up, third-hand story that suffers from a serious bout of Chinese Whispers.

It’s therefore very interesting that there exists an ancient text that gives a different and much more logically consistent version of the Garden of Eden story. The text is known as the Secret Testament of John or the Apocryphon of John. It is an ancient text, probably from the century after Christ's death. It is at least as old as the gospels of the New Testament, most of which were written at least a century after Christ's death, but unlike them, it was not chosen by Bishop Iraneus to form the New Testament. Instead, the early Roman Catholic Church tried to destroy it. Fortunately, a few copies survived.

Here’s the Apocryphon of John’s version of the Garden of Eden story: Read More...

Robert Monroe 'Journeys out of the Body' book review

icon-mk-brain
There aren’t many books in European and North American Literature that explore and discuss how a person’s spirit and mind might actually leave their body. There seem to be three possible reasons for this. Firstly, that such an ability is impossible. Secondly, that it is possible but no one has achieved it or thirdly, that it is possible, many people can achieve it but no one's allowed to talk about it. This third possibility does fit with our history. In the last two-thousand years, the institutions that dominated us, in particular the Catholic Church, have regarded any investigation of non-physical behaviour as witchcraft. Anyone who practiced such witchcraft faced the punishment of excruciating death.

burning-witch
The medieval and Renaissance periods of such intolerance were followed by our current period, beginning roughly in the eighteenth century. This period has been better in some ways for us, simply because our major religions don’t burn investigators at the stake. But it has also been worse in another way because our secular, scientific establishment, who supposedly really understands how the universe works, keeps telling everyone that non-physical phenomena, such as spirits, ghosts, astral travel, telepathy etc are impossible. Because of this, anyone who might be able to 'astrally travel' would still think twice about talking about it, both from a religious and secular perspective.

But in fact, scientific evidence clearly shows that 'astral travel' is possible. All living creatures must exist as non-physical minds, with spirit bodies, ones that positively influence their physical bodies, because this is the only way that Life can exist. This is because Life always increases organisation in the universe. This magical phenomena is in direct opposition to entropy, which should govern all physical matter in the universe. Therefore, the only way to resolve this Life-Entropy paradox is to conclude that there is a non-physical, organising presence positively influencing all living things. Without an organising influence originating from outside physical reality, Life would collapse in the face of entropy’s disorganising effect. For more on that subject, do please check out my book, 'how science shows…' and my influence idea article. Read More...

Revelations, Noah and the Great Flood

icon-mk-greek-star
Just a quick note to say that I've added a new article to the anomalies section, entitled 'Revelations and Noah'. The article puts forward the idea that the Book of Revelations in the Bible is not an apocalyptic tale about our future, described by God. Instead, it is an apocalyptic tale about our ancient past, described by Noah. I originally described this idea in my first self-published book, 'The Golden Web: Part 1' but I though it would be good to put it on this website for anyone to read.

The trigger for this update was a very interesting video on YouTube. The video explains new evidence that the Younger Dryas Impact Event, when our planet was hit by at least one size-able meteorite in 10,500 BC, really did occur. The theory has been controversial for years and attempts have been made to destroy it completely as a theory but fortunately, people are still working on it. Here's the video:


Jesus Christ and False Facts

icon-mk-osiris
Our news in the Western World is currently full of articles about false facts and their pernicious erosion of truth and knowledge. The topic came to prominence during the recent U.S. election and it’s rumbled on since then. Google has been trying to rectify this problem by notifying people of ‘false facts’ on websites. Their plan is to check those facts against information compiled in Wikipedia, which, er, is compiled by everyone and notify people if they're 'wrong'. Google has also been planning to implement algorithms on its search engine that lower a site’s ranking if it contains statements regarded as untrue. Their plan, as stated a few years ago, is to decide if something is untrue by working out if that is a fringe, minority view. If it is, then they lower the google rank of that site accordingly. Unfortunately, this isn’t an intelligent or scientific strategy, as I explained in a previous blog.

For example, most people believe that glass is a slow-moving liquid at room temperature, because medieval windows are thicker on the bottom than the top, showing that the glass has flowed down over centuries. In fact, medieval glaziers did not have flat glass, as it was blown into shape, and so they traditionally put the thicker edge at the bottom of the window. This is not a common piece of knowledge and most people believe the urban myth. If Google follows the ‘majority is correct’ approach to this fact, then they would penalise any site explaining that glass is a solid at room-temperature. As a result, it would become even more difficult for a website to explain the truth to everyone.

New short-stories on the website

icon-mk-telebot-reading
Just a quick note to say that I've added several science-fiction short stories to this website. At least one of them hasn't been on this website before (I think). If you'd like to read them, click on the highlighted links. They are:

phone-telebot-60px
18% Happier - This is a dialogue-based, comedy, science-fiction short-story in which a man rings a computer help-line and pours out his unhappiness at his girlfriend's behaviour, technology and the false-promises it has brought. This, I think, was a big step forward in terms of writing. I focussed on dialogue, a fast-pace and funny, thought-provoking ideas. Fortunately, it got a runners-up prize in Arc science-fiction magazine, which was a huge confidence boost.

lost-emotion-64px
The Lost Emotion (which is basically a monologue) This won a short-story competition in 'Arc' science-fiction magazine, years ago. I still like it. I especially the fact that it's based on an intriguing scientific discovery. that if we make an expression, we will feel the corresponding emotion. For example, if we make ourselves smile, we will feel happier. 'The Lost Emotion' expands on that idea, with a twist. Seasoned readers probably won't be surprised that it has a dystopian element but hey, I do try to make my stories at least a little realistic. ;-)


left-blonde-chatting
The Pique of Civilisation is another dialogue-based, science-fiction, comedy short story. I'm usually reluctant to write stupid female characters, although I have no problems at all writing stupid male characters. I guess that's a sort of inverted sexism. In this case, I did write two idiotic female characters and I think it works. These two ladies are incredibly shallow in an amusing way and there are ladies out there of that ilk, so it's a reasonable thing to do. Hopefully, you'll find it thought-provoking and funny too.

The Jekyll and Hyde of Fluoride

icon-mk-test-tube
Several years ago, I changed my toothpaste. I did this because I’d worked out, through experimentation, that SLS (sodium lauryl sulphate), a foaming agent found in many bathroom and kitchen products, gave me clammy hands and mouth ulcers. Not surprisingly, I didn’t want it in my mouth any more. I found a different toothpaste that was SLS-free and began using it exclusively.

aloe-vera-toothpaste


One side-effect of using this new toothpaste was that I was no longer brushing with fluoride, as the new toothpaste I’ve been using has no SLS or fluoride in its ingredients. I did wonder, at the time, if this might cause problems with my teeth, as fluoride is continually recommended to help avoid tooth decay. As this website article states, it's the 'super-hero of cavity fighting'. In the end, I thought it would be an interesting experiment to see how I got on without it. The years have gone and my teeth are still fine. I have no need for fillings, I have no gum problems and although my teeth aren’t perfect (they’re naturally a very pale yellow and a bit wonky), everything is fine inside my mouth. It would seem that I don't need this 'super-hero'.

Freezing Britain and methane bombs

icon-mk-burning-earth
This week, we are having unseasonable cold weather in the UK. Normally, at this time of year (end of February), temperatures here would be climbing into double figures as the sun rises higher in the sky. Instead, we are gripped with freezing day-time conditions, a sub-zero easterly wind and a fair amount of snow.

Some readers might conclude that such cold weather shows that fears of global warming are unfounded, or perhaps highly exaggerated. Tragically, this latest weather phenomenon, a mass-movement of cold air south, from the Arctic, is an indication that the opposite is true.

Mysterious excavated passage in the Great Pyramid antechamber

icon-mk-osiris
While browsing Youtube, I found this very interesting video about the Great Pyramid, created by 'Ancient Architects'. Ancient Architects is creating a lot of videos about ancient mysteries and their videos are invariably accessible, interesting and enjoyable. This video includes a short explanation of the theory of Jean Pierre Houdin, who believes that there is a secret access door to the King's Chamber, leading to hidden chambers, who's location may have been recently detected by muon scattering.

The special reason I'm mentioning this particular video in my blog is that it reports that there is now an excavated passage in the Great Pyramid's antechamber. I had no idea that this access passage existed. The video's author reports that the passage was recently excavated, then sealed off from the public by a locked, iron-grille door. Read More...

Robert Sepehr documentaries on Youtube

For the last year or so, Robert Sepehr has been posting interesting documentaries on Youtube. They cover a range of subjects, from anthropology to modern history. As many of their topics overlap with articles I've posted on this website, I thought it would be good to list four videos he's made that I've found interesting and thought-provoking. Unlike much that is posted on youtube, Robert Sepehr's videos are usually balanced and intelligent and don't veer off into wild speculation. They're also relatively free of ads, which makes them easier to watch too! I don't agree with everything he posts but I do think he's doing a good job. Here's the videos he's made that I've enjoyed, along with a few personal comments:

Edward Teller, climate change and 1959

icon-mk-burning-earth
There's a very interesting article in today's Guardian newspaper by Benjamin Franta. It concerns a symposium entitled 'Energy and Man' that took place in New York City in 1959, organised by the American Petroleum Industry as part of a celebration of 100 years of the American Petroleum industry. To quote from the article, 'Over 300 government officials, economists, historians, scientists, and industry executives were present'. Its guest of honour was Robert Dunlop but there was another famous face taking part, the brilliant physicist Edward Teller.

edward-teller
Edward Teller was a very right-wing man, almost as right-wing as his fellow ex-Hungarian, the genius scientist John Von Neumann, who supposedly became the inspiration for the character of 'Dr Strangelove' in Stanley Kubrick's famous movie. Both were firm advocates of a massive increase in arms spending and a deep-seated fear and hostility towards the Soviet Union. Von Neumann famously admitted to a congressional committee that he would carpet-bomb the entire Soviet nation at the first opportunity. Read More...

Keep them ill, keep them scared

The United States of America, along with the United Kingdom and France, are very keen on Ancient Greek and Roman architecture. Their capitals are filled with columned temples, obelisks, triumphal arches and other visual motifs from those ancient, Mediterranean civilisations. These countries' also like to talk about how they've inherited a key process in collective decision-making, known as democracy.

parthenon
Democracy was developed by the Athenian city-state, and others, as a way to collectively decide what to do. Athenians would discuss openly their views on key subjects and then take a vote. This process is now used worldwide to decide national matters. This all sounds great but in truth, how much is modern, Western democracy really like Classical, Athenian democracy? Read More...

Secret Societies, Parasites and Climate Change

icon-mk-osiris
A very unusual event happened this week in Britain. The current chair of the Police Federation, Steve White, is stepping down from his role, but before leaving, he has openly stated his concerns about the continued influence of Freemasons in the British Police. He felt that they were an obstacle to reform and modernisation of the police service. To quote from the Guardian article, White said:

“It’s about trust and confidence. There are people who feel that being a Freemason and a police officer is not necessarily a good idea. I find it odd that there are pockets of the organisation where a significant number of representatives are Freemasons.”


In my experience, it’s very unusual for any person in a senior role in the UK to criticise the Freemasons. Some might say that this because the Freemasons have only a minor influence in our country. Unfortunately, White’s comments indicate that a very different problem is present; that Freemasons have a very strong influence in at least one major organisation in our country. It has been common knowledge for a long time that the Freemasons are rife in Britain's police force, its judiciary, its civil service and its military. If this is correct, then Freemasons have a great deal of influence and control over the running of British society. Is this something we should be worried about? Read More...
