Today I would like to return to your awareness an aspect of the Human condition that bargains with uncertainty and finds comfort in denial. Every so often we must deal with an unpleasant truth we wish would just go away. Sometimes the truth can be very shocking and we find ourselves inadequately prepared to handle it. That’s when denial comes to the rescue— and what can’t be denied can always be rationalized away.
Perhaps we take for granted our gift of expression and ability to interface in such a complex world. It’s a wondrous thing really. Our curiosity and appetite for adventure are tempered only by the fear of death. We fancy ourselves as intrepid beings willing to brave most any course and face the great unknown. Be this as it may, there are limits. There are places where even the most courageous will dare not venture.
In the following paragraphs I intend to wrestle on a pair of Salvatore Ferragamo shoes that are way too tight. You see they’re stylish, expensive and give a good impression. The blister forming on my big toe is of no consequence. I need only convince myself that it’s me and not the shoe that’s the problem. As usual, I’ll put on my best face and it’s off to the party I go.
If Salvadore Dali were God, he would surely have designed an animal that looked like Hallucigenia. It has been described as the most surreal creature that lived in the strangest period in the history of life on Earth, more than 500 million years ago.
After more than four decades of studying fossilised imprints, scientists believe they have finally nailed Hallucigenia’s position in the tree of life, and in the process discovered its only living descendants.
Hallucigenia, named because of its dream-like, trip-inducing appearance, is one of the many marine animals that rather abruptly appear in the fossil record during a period in pre-history known as the Cambrian explosion, a biological bang that detonated the evolution of complex life-forms about 542 million years ago.
Hallucigenia sparsa: I Can’t Even
If you run a Google image search of Hallucigenia sparsa, you’ll find a disjointed array of fossil images and artist renditions—none of which seem to be able to agree. Which way is up? Which end is the front end? What is this thing? Since its discovery in the 1970′s, the long extinct Hallucigenia has been labeled a “evolutionary misfit” as scientists puzzled over how it related to modern day animals.

With incredible technology at our fingertips, scientists are now more than ever before striving to understand the mind, looking to answers questions such as: “How quickly can the brain think?” and “How does the mind work?” Are we getting any closer to having these questions answered?
The basic structure and function of neurons – brain cells that process and transmit information through electrical and chemical signals – were discovered by Santiago Ramón y Cajal in Spain in the late 19th century. From that point forth, humanity has made amazing strides in creating and using technologies to record brain activity and understand its patterns – from magnetic resonance scanners to recording neural communication using electrodes on the scalp and the brain.
The mystery of what brain patterns really mean – often referred to as the “neural code” – continues to bewilder neuroscientists, although they have made considerable progress, particularly over the last couple of decades. We now understand which parts of the brain are responsible for some specific tasks, for example the hippocampus is known to be important for spatial navigation. Now, some researchers are realizing the challenge in decoding the “neural code”, so they are writing their own by studying which patterns correspond to which actions. Albert Lee and Matthew Wilson, of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) established this approach in 2002, analyzing patterns in the brain of a rat as it runs through a maze:
A global threat? A slight nuisance? Whatever you decide to call it, the U.S. government gave Monsanto a patent for the main ingredient in toxic RoundUp, glyphosate, in 2010. It has been killing a wide range of pathogenic organisms (including the healthy bacteria we need to fight super bugs) even since it first came into use in 1974.
Monsanto will tell you that:
“Roundup® brand herbicides continue to be a perfect fit with the vision of sustainable agriculture and environmental protection. In fact, their use on Roundup Ready® crops has allowed farmers to conserve fuel, reduce tillage and decrease the overall amount of herbicides used.”
These are all claims which have been proven to be untrue.
So why would the company seek a patent for an herbicide to be used as an antibiotic? All the more important to ask is, why is this toxic ingredient allowed to be used when it has been proven again and again to allow toxic bacteria like clostridium to flourish?

The British government will not block companies exporting arms to Israel, despite previous warnings that arms licenses would be rescinded if fighting in the Middle East continued.
Despite a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas being broken on Tuesday, a government spokesperson said the licenses have not been suspended.
“We said we would suspend licenses if there was a significant resumption of hostilities,” a government spokesperson said.
“We are closely monitoring the situation – our assessment so far is the resumption of hostilities has been limited.”
Bill Bard says:
UK Gov lies. Not fighting enough to suspend licences. Who fucking decides?
Cameron? who is a Zionist anyway. They are all mealy mouthed Bastards.
A “diamond planet” was discovered in late 2012 and I’ve been fascinated by it ever since I heard about it – but didn’t really know why. As with most things recently, I wonder why these things stick out in my mind and therefore, what it was offering me on my spiritual journey. Then I put it together when I read an article from Forbes magazine about the diamond planet and the monetary “value” that was placed on it - $26.9 Nonillion (which is 26.9 followed by 30 zeros).
Here is a quote from the article I’m referring to “There is no doubt in my mind that it would be quite valuable for those of us on earth to be able to mine The Diamond Planet and sell its raw diamonds. Naturally, there is a question of whether all that supply could be absorbed by the market.”
It led me to wonder about our values: Is humanity so disconnected that we speculate about the potential mining value of a newly discovered planet rather than marvel at its creation? Isn’t there an inherent problem with this kind of thinking?
The concept that humanity has any right to consider mining this far off planet for diamonds and selling them here on Earth is not only arrogant, it demonstrates our skewed priorities and the extent of the illusions that make up our disintegrating reality. Diamonds are only considered “valuable” because our society attributes a specific value to them. The perceived monetary value of the ‘diamond planet’ serves as a distraction from our true nature – curiosity and scientific enquiry about this amazing discovery.

Today, marijuana — or weed, pot, cannabis, Mary Jane — is the third most popular recreational drug in the United States, behind only alcohol and tobacco. Upward of 24 million people have used it, based on the latest estimates, with 14 million using it regularly. But despite a growing warmth toward the drug, and two states (Washington and Colorado) legalizing its recreational use, there are still some people on the fence about its safety and usefulness. So, to educate you nonbelievers out there, here are five marijuana myths debunked.
It’s a Gateway Drug
This may be the biggest farce cooked up by marijuana opponents, but it makes sense. People who have tried marijuana may eventually go on to try harder drugs in search of a stronger high, and their experimentation leads them down a dangerous path toward addiction. But the science behind whether or not this is true overwhelmingly shows that it’s not.
“Because it is the most widely used illicit drug, marijuana is predictably the first illicit drug most people encounter,” a report from the Institute of Medicine (IOM) said. “In the sense that marijuana use typically precedes rather than follows initiation of other illicit drug use, it is indeed a ‘gateway’ drug.

In keeping with recent years; this season’s crop circle activity has taken a marked departure from the formations we’ve grown accustomed to seeing in past seasons. Rather than 3D crop circles with jaw-dropping sophisticated geometry; we are instead seeing repetitive patterns and variations on a theme. In total we find five types of repeated patterns in this years formations; the most frequent being the seed of life ellipses, and concentric rings. Based in sacred geometry and the Vesica Piscis, the seed of life is the basic mathematical foundation of the Flower of Life; and is a familiar crop circle pattern. The other repetitive patterns this season are the crescent moon, star design, and spirals.
Another change is the increased instances of farmers cutting out crop circles on their property as soon as they are discovered. This is primarily done to prevent even further crop damage done by dozens or even hundreds of people flocking to visit the latest event.
“What Do They Mean“
Pretty much the first thing we want to know when seeing a crop circle is what the intended meaning is. There are no shortages of ideas when it comes to deciphering these things, or who is creating them; and if you follow this mystery very long you will no doubt encounter most of them, so take your pick!

Suaqui land in La Candelaria, Costa de Hermosillo sinks.
Located on the west coast area of Hermosillo, with less than a hundred inhabitants, Suaqui police station of La Candelaria has drawn the attention of all and sundry to appear on 15 August, a large crack over a thousand meters long apparently caused by an earthquake, whose one subsidence occurred on the eve of earthquakes located in the “pool of Guaymas” where publicly said he was doing a volcano, like “San Andreas” that supposedly passes through the Altar Desert. | CNN Report |
Dog Poet Transmitting…….
May your noses always be cold and wet.
Greetings one and all. Well, I’m back where I was before this whole recent episode started. I knew I would be in any case, around this time, because of an important and most welcome piece of business which closes the Italian chapter of this life, though for me it’s been closed for several years, ever since the hyper dimensional experience that took place there. Man! Have I had an exciting life or what? I learned something with this latest foray into the land of Visible the Perpetual Ingenue. I learned I’m not 18 anymore. Large parts of myself just don’t take the aging process seriously. I get about like a youth (or I did- and will again). I think like a youth with certain benefits. I could continue the examples but you know what I mean.
Eventually one has to face up to certain realities, at least until the transformation goes down. I fully expect some of us to become consecrated immortals. I’m sure Sovereignty would agree with that as would Ray B. and some others; don’t usually make reader mentions in the posts but I don’t like setting fixed behavior patterns. When you don’t know much of anything for sure, it is a requirement (at least for me) to operate with latitude till the ineffable alters the course. I pray that finds a more gentle expression in coming days. Still, I don’t regret any of it. Usually, the only time I have regret is when I behave badly and my behavior has been exemplary through this year. That is a kind of consistency that I have lacked in former times, both intentionally and unintentionally. Once again, when you don’t know a great many things with an observable certainty, you’re going to make mistakes. In any case, it is far better to make mistakes than it is to sidestep life.
Inositol Deficiency Linked to Depression
A 1995 study found amazing results treating depression with inositol. As reported in the American Journal of Psychiatry (Vol. 152, No. 5) “the overall improvement in scores on the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale was significantly greater for inositol than for placebo at week 4. No changes were noted in hematology or in kidney or liver function… Inositol had a significant antidepressant effect in this study.”
A 2001 study continued to find impressive results, and “continuing reports of inositol’s efficacy in the treatment of depression, panic disorders, and OCD should stimulate replication studies”. Yet conventional medicine (in all its wisdom) continues to treat depression with pharmaceutical medications, despite the findings of a 2010 study that “the benefit of antidepressant medication compared with placebo may be minimal or nonexistent in patients with mild or moderate symptoms”.
My guess is, even if you suffer from depression, you haven’t heard about this study. And I’d even go further to guess that most of you have never heard of inositol.
It’s amazing how people have been backed into a corner by this barrage of social programming and outright intimidation. People actually feel apologetic about speaking the truth when it counters the politically correct entrained mass mindset of the world today. It’s not always obvious and can manifest in many subtle yet powerfully debilitating ways.
I’m in the midst of answering older sibling’s responses to my understanding of America’s participation in the Zionist phenomenon. I’ve only sent select information in the hopes of at least cracking their eyes open even a little bit as to the obvious results of this militarized American mindset and what they’ve been bamboozled into supporting. While we communicate freely on other subjects and our discourse is not belligerent, on this one I was met with not just the usual irrational justifications and indoctrinated responses, but there soon appeared a patronizing and condescending tone, an indication of the degree of entrenchment I was touching on.
It was as if entirely different people were suddenly speaking to me, resorting to addressing perceived underlying weaknesses in my thinking, delivery and temperament while at the same time basically reflecting the profoundly deep culture of religio-political tainted western programming. It was a perfect illustration of the tough contest many are up against and brought to mind some of the more subtle aspects of why many are often reluctant to share the naked truth.

1. …If you use or claim to use/own the NAME you think is yours but isn’t because it was GIVEN to the CROWN CORPORATION/church/state by your parents at birth?
2. …If you claim OWNERSHIP of anything REGISTERED because ALL things/people REGISTERED are PROPERTY OF THE CROWN?
3. You are automatically deemed a thief if you claim ANYTHING/EVERYTHING that has the NAME you claim fraudulently as yours on a REGISTRATION/OWNERSHIP and why COURTS and POLICE can and will “steal” what you think are your belongings but aren’t and actually are only reclaiming what was willfully GIVEN to the CROWN, their master.

The state of Texas does. So do the states of California, Georgia and Colorado. Soon, the entire UnitedState (singular usage, in the interests of editorial accuracy) is likely to require it. Indeed, already does – under the auspices of the REAL ID Act, passed back in ’05 by the Heimatsicherheitsdeinst.
That’s Homeland Security, in English. But it amounts to the same thing.
Like Clover overtaking a garden, this business is spreading across the land. It’s been pruned here and there – for the moment – but the general trend is depressingly clear. Within a decade, at most, it will probably be impossible – legally – for any person in this country to avoid being fingerprinted. Perhaps also retina scanned and DNA swabbed, for good measure.
Bill Bard says:
Not much good fingerprinting if there is “No name”.
UK police officers and civilian staff made racist and threatening comments on Facebook and Twitter, friend-requested victims of crime and uploaded “compromising” images of colleagues, figures released under the Freedom of Information Act show.
Documents obtained by the Press Association show a total of 828 police employees were investigated over a five-year period for breaching police social media guidelines at forces across England and Wales.
One in seven investigations resulted in no further action or the personnel having no case to answer, but one in 10 resulted in an officer resigning, being dismissed or taking retirement.
In one instance, a civilian officer posted a comment on a Facebook account regarding the actions of Muslims in central London failing to observe two minutes’ silence. It was alleged the language used “could be regarded as offensive/inappropriate likely to cause offence to other persons,” police said.
Potential ICC investigation into actions of both the IDF and Hamas in Gaza has become a fraught political battlefield
The international criminal court has persistently avoided opening an investigation into alleged war crimes in Gaza as a result of US and other western pressure, former court officials and lawyers claim.
In recent days, a potential ICC investigation into the actions of both the Israel Defence Forces and Hamas in Gaza has become a fraught political battlefield and a key negotiating issue at ceasefire talks in Cairo. But the question of whether the ICC could or should mount an investigation has also divided the Hague-based court itself.
An ICC investigation could have a far-reaching impact. It would not just examine alleged war crimes by the Israeli military, Hamas and other Islamist militants in the course of recent fighting in Gaza that left about 2,000 people dead, including women and children. It could also address the issue of Israeli settlements in the Palestinian territories, for which the Israeli leadership would be responsible.
Bill Bard says:
Everyone and Everything is being screwed by US & UK.
Russian President Vladimir Putin is taking names. Potentially thousands.
The former KGB colonel, concerned with how social media can be used to undermine his authority, this month expanded his regulation of media to the blogosphere, requiring those with at least 3,000 daily readers to register their real names and contact information. So far, about 580 bloggers in Russia have applied to register with the country’s communications regulator Roskomnadzor.
The government says this is needed so it can remove inaccurate or defamatory information on the Internet. But some bloggers fear it will limit free speech, allow Putin to close down blogs he doesn’t like and give him an excuse to block sites such as Twitter in the future.
The total number of bloggers who are required to register may be several thousand. Roskomnadzor may shut down the accounts of those who don’t follow the new rule. Roskomnadzor sent Eduard Limonov and Boris Akunin, who are known for their opposition to the government, requests to register their blogs, according to the daily newspaper Izvestia.
