This is a song that I grew up with… it’s in me, as it were. It was aired on the fabulous WFUV the other day and it rekindled a lot of memories.

I think it’s fabulous and I hope you do, too.

It’s been over a month, I noticed. I am sorry.

Duties, depression and not insignificantly the wretched “performance” of the Verizon FiOS fiber optic connection, which on many (read: most) days is, I swear to God, SLOWER than the old dial up modems. Really. Not kidding. Verizon sucks, to put it as politely as possible and it makes it a stressful chore to even reply to an email.

I’ve spent FORTY FIVE minutes on this post already.

My entire tech world is crumbling around me and I am going blind. I am not a happy man. I have never been a happy man.

I keep trying though. Starting this week I’ll have two therapies a week, with two different people. It might work and I hope it does but coming up fast on 60 years of total failure has drained a heck of a lot of will out of me and very nearly 100% of my motivation. To do anything. Literally.

What I want to see is a return to my old posting frequency and the turning of all the stuff I read online into grist for your mill.

Wish me luck.

Peace.

image of a hydrogen atom

What you’re looking at is the first direct observation of an atom’s electron orbital — an atom’s actual wave function! To capture the image, researchers utilized a new quantum microscope — an incredible new device that literally allows scientists to gaze into the quantum realm.

Source: io9
Primary Source: Phys Papers

Fabulous! Whoa!

This new quantum microscope is going to be a significant tool for discovery and enlightenment… I can just feel it!

It is not a photograph, in reality, it’s not an actual picture of an atom. What it is is a composite of millions of experimental results, as normally a wave function will collapse leaving only the electron… this shows the cumulative tracks the electrons take… and of course it is in just to dimensions.

See the links above for the details (it’s not long) but basically…

The researchers finally twigged how to make an image of it by bouncing other electrons off the field millions of times, eventually building up a suitable image using the accumulated data.

After zapping the atom with laser pulses, ionized electrons escaped and followed a particular trajectory to a 2D detector (a dual microchannel plate [MCP] detector placed perpendicular to the field itself). There are many trajectories that can be taken by the electrons to reach the same point on the detector, thus providing the researchers with a set of interference patterns — patterns that reflected the nodal structure of the wave function.

Go science! Quantum Microscopy!

Peace.

Hey man, now we’re talkin’!

How I wish that I could go to this conference and just listen… oh, does this sort of thing get me excited… I mean really excited… just imagine the implications, the possibilities, the wonders and the tools that could come from this research.

Go, Boffins, Go!

WAAAH!

Superluminal Physics & Instantaneous Physics

as new fields of research

[electronic conference]

2-4 July 2012

University of New Mexico, Gallup, NM 87301, USA

American Mathematical Society calendar: http://www.ams.org/meetings/calendar/2012_jul2-4_gallup.html

In a similar way as passing from Euclidean Geometry to Non-Euclidean Geometry, we can pass from Subluminal Physics to Superluminal Physics, and further to Instantaneous Physics (instantaneous traveling). In the lights of two consecutive successful CERN experiments with superluminal particles in the Fall of 2011, we believe these two new fields of research should begin developing.

A physical law has a form in Newtonian physics, another form in the Relativity Theory, and different form at Superluminal theory, or at Instantaneous (infinite) speeds – according to the S-Denying Theory spectrum.

First, we extend physical laws and formulas to superluminal traveling and to instantaneous traveling. Afterwards, we should extend existing classical physical theories from subluminal to superluminal and instantaneous traveling.

And lately we need to found a general theory that unites all theories at: law speeds, relativistic speeds, superluminal speeds, and instantaneous speeds – as in the S-Multispace Theory.

Papers of research in the Superluminal Physics and Instantaneous Physics should be e-mailed to Prof. Florentin Smarandache, University of New Mexico, Gallup, NM 87301, USA, by July 1st, 2012, to be published in the Proceedings of Superluminal Physics & Instantaneous Physics International Conference.

Although I am pretty sure, but not completely sure, that the above research has gone beyond it, (oh, they surely have) this brings to my mind the phenomena of interconnectedness that particles can and often do share.

It is very weird and most impressive… particles and even whole particle systems have been seen to react as one, in perfect sync, when separated in space. The distance between them can be as immense as you like… even billions of light years.

Albert Einstein was particularly intrigued by this behavior in his later years – he called it “Spooky action at a distance” way back when. That name has stuck like glue in my head ever since I first read it so long ago. Conjures up some great images, some of them rather “paranormal.” And, let’s face it, it’s much sexier than a “quantum ER Bridge.”

Peace.

Please give a ‘Thumbs up’!

There’s nothing they are leaving untouched: the mustard, the okra, the bringe oil, the rice, the cauliflower. Once they have established the norm: that seed can be owned as their property, royalties can be collected. We will depend on them for every seed we grow of every crop we grow. If they control seed, they control food, they know it — it’s strategic. It’s more powerful than bombs. It’s more powerful than guns. This is the best way to control the populations of the world. The story starts in the White House, where Monsanto often got its way by exerting disproportionate influence over policymakers via the “revolving door.” One example is Michael Taylor, who worked for Monsanto as an attorney before being appointed as deputy commissioner of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1991. While at the FDA, the authority that deals with all US food approvals, Taylor made crucial decisions that led to the approval of GE foods and crops. Then he returned to Monsanto, becoming the company’s vice president for public policy.

Thanks to these intimate links between Monsanto and government agencies, the US adopted GE foods and crops without proper testing, without consumer labeling and in spite of serious questions hanging over their safety. Not coincidentally, Monsanto supplies 90 percent of the GE seeds used by the US market. Monsanto’s long arm stretched so far that, in the early nineties, the US Food and Drugs Agency even ignored warnings of their own scientists, who were cautioning that GE crops could cause negative health effects. Other tactics the company uses to stifle concerns about their products include misleading advertising, bribery and concealing scientific evidence.

Check this out: What Monsanto Doesn’t Want You To Know-The Genetic Food Conspiracy:http://mysticalmusingsandpolitics.blogspot.com/2010/11/what-monsanto-doesnt-w…

A great documentary exposing the evil agricultural nightmare called Monsanto and the story of Roundup and Roundup Ready Soybeans. A 2004 documentary film which makes an in-depth investigation into unlabeled, patented, genetically engineered foods that have quietly made their way onto grocery stores in the United States for the past decade. It voices the opinions of farmers in disagreement with the food industry and details the impacts on their lives and livelihoods from this new technology, and shines a light on the market and political forces that are changing what we eat. The film decries the cost of a globalized food industry on human lives around the world, and highlights how international companies are gradually driving farmers off the land in many countries. Potential global dependence of the human race on a limited number of global food corporations is discussed, as is the increased risk of ecological disasters — such as the Irish Potato Famine (1845–1849) — resulting from the reduction of biological diversity due to the promotion of corporate sponsored monoculture farming. The issue of incorporating a terminator gene into plant seeds is questioned, with concern being expressed about the potential for a widespread catastrophe affecting the food supply, should such a gene contaminate other plants in the wild. Legal stories reported by the film related how a number of farmers in North America have been sued by Monsanto; and the defendant of the Monsanto Canada Inc. v. Schmeiser case is interviewed.

Another classic… I think I may be on a food binge… Ha!

Seriously though, I cannot stress enough the importance of realizing what it is one is eating… and that some of those things could be harmful in ways no one on earth can know or predict.

Be aware that this goes for every single person on this earth… it is as serious as a heart attack. For it could well give you one. Or a lot worse. And your kids? Fuggeddaboudit … they’re goners.

If you’re not really upset, you need to smell the roses, bud.

I’m thinking I’ll just go ahead and hit publish… the two uploader descriptions are pretty wordy and the film quite handily speaks for itself. Do yourself a favor and watch it.

Information
Food, Inc
Documentary filmmaker Robert Kenner uses reports by FAST FOOD NATION author Eric Schlosser and THE OMNIVORE’S DILEMMA author Michael Pollan as a springboard to exploring where the food we purchase really comes from, and what it means for the health of future generations. By exposing the comfortable relationships between business and government, Kenner gradually shines light on the dark underbelly of the American food industry. The USDA and FDA are supposed to protect the public, so why is it that both government regulatory agencies have been complicit in allowing corporations to put profit ahead of consumer health, the American farmer, worker safety, and even the environment? As chicken breasts get bigger and tomatoes are genetically engineered not to go bad, 73,000 Americans fall ill from powerful new strains of E. coli every year, obesity levels are skyrocketing, and adult diabetes has reached epidemic proportions. Perhaps if the general public knew how corporations use exploited laws and subsidies to create powerful monopolies, the outrage would be enough to make us think more carefully about the food we put into our bodies.

This is a great film that everyone needs to see. Worth seeing again if it’s been awhile. This thread is meant mostly for those new to the scene, though, those just starting to realize that it is just not what it seems, this world we live in.

It is really quite frightening when you come to see the big picture, to know what is truly happening all around us, to know that when you take a bite out of that burger, you’re eating cow shit. Yeah.

There is a fine juxtaposition at an hour in, 57:30 really. After a wonderful segment with a real farmer who gives us truth they switch focus to a rather inane organic convention featuring their own poisons and then we see the Stonyfield company. I used to buy their yogurt. Used to. The company goes to the extreme opposite of the real farmer we have just learned a lot from. They sell tons of no longer completely good food to meet the needs of that repugnant monstrosity known as Wal-Mart. Antithesis much? And worst of all, yes worse than that – they have wholeheartedly endorsed GMO “foods” … yeah … and quite recently. Which means Stonyfield are in point of fact completely full of shit. I am sorry, but I can not buy things from sell-outs. I cannot trust that kind.

The film gets into some feel good bits after that through to the end.

I wonder if we can re-achieve a healthy way of life. I wonder if we can eradicate the poisons we face – before  Monsanto and Pioneer and Smithfield and Tyson and all the others kill every last one of us… all for their inhuman greed.

Peace.

Referee comes out of nowhere, at 7 seconds into the video. Watch and see, and you’ll know what I mean! make sure you rewind!!!!

Also available here, from another uploader…

Uploaded by on Jul 6, 2011

Anyone who watches hockey knows that in order to be an NHL ref you need to know how to teleport. But seriously, what is going on here?

I have been watching this, over and over and over again, trying to figure out what is happening here. Full screen included.

I’ve stopped now, mainly to prevent overheating my neurons. I have a very nice ViewSonic professional monitor and an ATi FireGL V3600 video card. All well and good, but…

I can’t figure it out.

In the discussion about this vid over at ATS, some say the referee can be glimpsed briefly just before. Maybe. Some say the camera started and stopped. Not. Someone, pretending to be a video expert, said some frames were dropped, highly doubtful, or, edited out on purpose to create an illusion. What? This is live coverage of a big game… the producers have neither the time nor the inclination for such tomfoolery. There’s major money at stake for them.

After the fact it could be, but I see absolutely no evidence of frames gone missing; and, why would they do such a thing?

I can’t see where he skates in from. I just can’t. I’m not ready to say it’s a paranormal event, but I do feel it’s pretty damn Fortean. Oh, wait, is that the same thing? Ha!

Someone did say it is perhaps a glitch in the matrix…

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards (ACRS) held a special ACRS meeting Thursday May 26, 2011 on the current status of Fukushima. Arnie Gundersen was invited to speak for 5 minutes concerning the lessons learned from the Fukushima accident as it pertains to the 23 Mark 1 Boiling Water Reactors (BWR’s) in the US and containment integrity. Mr. Gundersen was the first engineer to brief the NRC on the implication of Main Steam Isolation Valve (MSIV) Leakage in 1974, and he has been studying containment integrity since 1972. The NRC has constantly maintained in all of its calculations and reviews that there is zero probability of a containment leaking. For more than six years, in testimony and in correspondence with the NRC, Mr. Gundersen has disputed the NRC’s stand that containment systems simply do not and cannot leak. The events at Fukushima have proven that Gundersen was correct. The explosions at Fukushima show that Mark 1 containments will lose their integrity and release hugh amounts of radiation, as Mr. Gundersen has been telling the NRC for many years.

Here is the source page at Gundersen’s Fairewinds Associates. And here is an ongoing discussion at AboveTopSecret.com.

This video is really rather disturbing.

Although we can be deeply dismayed that Mr. Gundersen has been warning the nuclear industry of the failures in their policies and procedures and the resultant threat to all living things therein implied for six years now, it is more disturbing to me to see the utter disdain for this man that was displayed loud and clear by the attendees of this meeting.

The members were told twice to stop interrupting and otherwise disturbing Gundersen’s presentation. They did not. Quite the opposite occurred. Revolting pieces of trash… all those “people.” And I use that term loosely, hence the quotes.

Gundersen was given just five minutes to portray what was quite likey the only testimony at thte entire meeting that had any real significance.

These corporate “people” are in bed with each other and the governments they represent… their entire purpose seemingly to protect the nuclear industry and their precious profits — at all costs. Regardless of the imminent failures looming on the horizon and the subsequent deaths of countless people due to their failures and outright greed.

As the audience here is primarily American, you should note that Gundersen is speaking here primarily of serious reactor safety issues in the US… and you should also be aware that our reactors are a lot less structurally and environmentally sound that the ones in Fukushima that are filling our produce, our water, our rain and our milk with radioactive material even as we speak.

These agencies will not only not listen to facts as is made clear in this video — rest assured that they will not do a god damn thing to protect anyone or anything with the exception of their financial and political well being. Period.

No, they can’t handle the truth — and they certainly don’t want to hear anyone tell them about it.

The implications are… not good.

Just thought you should know.

http://www.theageoftransitions.com. Please visit the website to learn more.

The Age of Transitions is a documentary about converging technology, transhumanism, artificial intelligence, life extension, brain implants, social science, propaganda, nanotechnology, eugenics, geopolitics, world revolution, and more.

Featuring: Bill Clinton, George W Bush, Newt Gingrich, Nick Bostrom, Aubrey de Grey, Ray Kurzweil, Anders Sandberg, Michio Kaku, Hugo de Garis, Kevin Warwick, Marvin Minsky, Charles Galton Darwin, Julian Huxley, Aldous Huxley, William Shatner, Alex Jones, Jordan Maxwell, Cathy O’Brien, Alan Watt

Scary stuff, this. I had never really paid any attention at all to the transhumanist movement, so I came into this with a fresh eye. Not liking it.

Reminds me of that classic Twilight Zone episode who’s name escapes me that dealt with a cabal of old geezers looking for the fountain of youth. Creepy. Although it just might be nice to be able to reverse the ravages of time and bad behavior, the very idea of gaining an extension to our lifespans through nanotechnology, brain implants, artificial intelligence and the eventual replacement of our bodies and brains represents the ultimate anathema to me.

Lt. Commander Data is a nice fellow, certainly… but he is a robot… he is not human, we are. He does not feel the rush of adrenaline when he walks or lifts weights or makes love. Anyone trying to eliminate those qualities, the reality of being a living creature; and anyone stupid enough to actually want to be killed [for that is what it is] and then to have a select few of your electrical impulses loaded into a memory chip is, well, an f-in’ idiotWAAAH! Wow.

Proponents present all this as being altruistic and good, something that will benefit us all. Really? Removal of our thoughts, minds and free will, removal of our status as living beings is good? That’s nuts. That’s eugenics. That’s evil. The elite want to have a population of slaves, of robots, unable to question or revolt; to enrich their lives. I’m sorry, but I cannot comprehend a more evil agenda.

I’ve got chills up my spine, because it is my gut feeling that with the ever more prevalent engineered stupidity of the population at large, they will succeed. Our only hope is world revolution. Real revolution. From the heart.

You can find the PDF of the National Science Foundation report referred to in the film here:
“Converging Technologies for Improving Human Performance. Nanotechnology, Biotechnology, Information Technology And Cognitive Science” (Note: It is a big PDF.)

And now… a short piece on how the dissemination of some of the ideas presented above occurs, subtly, via the music industry.

As much as I love music, [music has been shown, scientifically, to be lodged in our primordial genetic makeup], the music industry has always seemed to me to be just plain evil. Always has been, it would appear. Ripping off artists; Raping and killing them, both financially and literally; Nothing done after investigative exposés; Going after people in the public sector, especially kids, who they deem a threat to their profits. They are repulsive and should be obliterated.

It is quite disturbing to me to see these current “artists” participating so eagerly in this grand scheme.

From the video posting:

Weather Modification – Energy Weapons – Bearden 1985
1:02:03 – 1 year ago

This presentation was likely at McDonnell Douglas Aircraft, as Bearden refers to Jack Houck, who used to work for them. If what Bearden says is true, then how has the technology advanced since 1985?

Can we imagine that any of this technology may relate to the Hutchison Effect and what was used on 9/11 to destroy the WTC? (You draw your own conclusions….)

Full DVD available here: http://www.cheniere.org/video/sovietweathervideo.html

Since then, the technology has been developed into more rigorous longitudinal EM wave interferometry, which is the exact nature of those earlier weather engineering weapons. The foundations of scalar electro-magnetics are also well explained in this presentation.

Tom explains exactly what was meant when Secretary of Defense William Cohen cryptically warned: “Others [terrorists] are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves… So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations…It’s real, and that’s the reason why we have to intensify our counterterrorism efforts.”

Lt. Col. Thomas E. Bearden, Ph.D. (retd.) is one of the world’s top researchers in the field of scalar systems. I have long been a fan and hold great respect for his accomplishments. Last time I checked he was working with over-unity research, the so-called “free energy” wherein the energy that is in the space around us is harnessed and put to use. Those devices, however revolutionary and life changing they’d be, are a tad boring, really and just don’t have the panache that relativistic scalar weaponry and weather control systems do! Our imaginations sometimes require a greater level of stimuli, you see. Anyway…

In the video a lot of info on the efforts of the Russians is presented along with some intriguing results from Bearden’s own laboratory… it is both exciting and a tad scary at the same time. The fact that testing shows that our minds can do this stuff as well as modified radar antennas can goes a long way, as is stated, towards explaining all of the various fields of parapsychology… and I can’t help but remember that Scanners movie! Yikes!

Apparently, according to Bearden, the testing, installation and alignment of scalar weather modification systems by the “hammer and sickle” boys was the cause of most of the reports of mystery booms throughout the states and in other parts of the world from the early 60s through the early 80s.

I have no problem at all with such a conjecture… but… having said that… many, many of these mystery booms have a very long history; my own state’s famous Moodus Noises, for example. Most folk, including myself for a good while believe they’ve been named after the town of Moodus, Connecticut, where they seem to emanate from. I found that’s not really so, though… because, in reality, the booms were named long before the Pilgrims arrived… by the local Native folks. The word Moodus… means “strange noises!”

Later on, the amazing exploration team of Lewis and Clark duly recorded the “unaccountable artillery of the Rocky Mountains.” Hmmm. There are so many more, too…

So, there is something very, very Fortean about such fantastically powerful acoustic conundrums. After all, there just weren’t no Commies in the latter part of the 1600s!

Natural phenomena, perhaps? Sure, very possibly. The Earth can generate some pretty wild stuff and does so on a regular basis, so indeed many booms may be just that.

The following video in three parts, [although it’s clear there should be at least a part 4 somewhere about], details what is arguably the most exotic mystery boom ever… the Bell Island Boom. I fully believe that Mother Nature has it in her to create such a happening… what Dr. Bearden proposes in the vid above fits in quite well, too, as you’ll see.

From the video posting (#1):

MysteryBooms — June 29, 2009 — Was it ball lightning or a test of a top secret electromagnetic weapon? What caused the explosive phenomenon on Bell Island, Newfoundland in 1978 that electrocuted livestock, melted power lines, and produced floating orbs of fire? Enough energy was released that day to set off the American nuclear test watch satellites, and weapons researchers from the Los Alamos National Laboratory soon showed up at the site. CBC Reporter, Rick Seaward, was at the scene in 78. He investigates the mysterious phenomenon and the shadowy events that followed in this broadcast from the following year.

Although I’ve lived along the East Coast of America all my life, I regret that I’ve never ever heard one of these notorious and massive booms, unless much smaller booms count… a couple or three weeks or so ago there was a mighty hefty one here in Cos Cob I thought, but that sounded like a substantial, well-defined crack, perhaps of a large transformer (or mortar shell) detonation down in the town a mile or so away… but… it wasn’t nearly the scale of  any of the ones discussed in books on Fortean happenings or in newspapers and certainly not the Bell Island incident!

So what are they? Who knows?! Mix up some Nature, throw in some Bearden, a few Commies, a couple UFOs battling above us… who knows?

Enjoy… I think it’s fascinating.
