Technical Aspects Regarding Healing Disconnectedness

Disconnectedness is a relatively recent phenomenon when we consider the fact the first humans appeared approximately two million years ago during the Tribal Underworld. As previously discussed, disconnectedness is a product of ego consciousness which began its emergence a little over 5,000 years ago with the advent of the National Underworld. With the rise of the male monotheistic and separatist god-concept approximately 3,500 years ago the ego grew in power and reached its peak during the materialistic Planetary Underworld initiated in 1755 with the Industrial Revolution.

It’s a mistake to assume that prior to the National Underworld humans were one big happy family. It’s likely that a kind of group consciousness prevailed—an instinctually-based “herd mentality”—such that personal identity was subsumed by the larger social context in which humans existed. In other words the idea of personal or individuated consciousness likely didn’t exist. Conflicts between and among different groups would have occurred, much like we see today in various primate populations. Such conflicts, however, were driven by instinctual forces that had as their aim territorial dominance or predatory behavior. It was the group that was all-important, and even if an individual was “heroic” in these conflicts it was only the group that benefited.

This purely instinctual control of human behavior and consciousness persisted for the entirety of the Tribal Underworld and for most of the Regional Underworld, which began approximately 100,000 BCE. It was only during the last segment of the prehistoric Regional Underworld, which preceded the National Underworld, that any signs of human consciousness as we know it would begin to emerge. As indicated in The Collapsing Tower, this slow transition to modern individual consciousness was depicted in the Old Testament as the myth of the expulsion from the Garden of Eden.

In the biblical myth expulsion from the Garden of Eden marked the beginning of our conscious disconnectedness from the control of Nature and instinct. This opened the door for human dominion over Nature, depicted in the creation myth of Genesis discussed in the last Newsletter. We are, however, still in the process of transcending instinctual control. We must now transcend the “herd instinct” in order to bring about a full sense of Humanity. Until we do this humans will attempt to dominate each other, not only in terms of groups (nations, ethnicities, and even gender), but individually as well—and this will continue to translate dominion to domination with regard to Nature.

Thus, there is no format, or morphogenetic form, for the inclusive sense of Humanity. It’s highly unlikely that there ever was one on the physical plane of existence. We must create it.

Rianne Eisler’s The Chalice and the Blade that was discussed in The Collapsing Tower, offers a key to how a morphogenetic form for Unified Humanity may be created. Eisler delineated the radical transformation that occurred during the transition from the matriarchal, Goddess/Nature-based Regional Underworld to the patriarchal National Underworld dominated by the anti-feminine male god of judgment, retribution, and war. Prior to this social interchange, according to Eisler, was based on a model of cooperativeness. After the transition the model shifted to competition and domination. In the Mayan conception, this shift could be attributed to the Divine Light transiting from shining on both brain hemispheres in the unitary Regional Underworld to the Light favoring the left-brain hemisphere, and associated masculine qualities of separation, linear thinking and time, and hierarchy. We now live in an Underworld (Galactic) that reverses this emphasis and shines on the right hemisphere.

As we approach the end of the Mayan Calendar, which has be called the “end of (linear) time”, we have gained the sense of individuality that the left hemisphere of the brain gave us. We must now bring it into balance with the right hemisphere in order to achieve wholeness. The scientific achievements that ego (left-brain) consciousness has afforded us can help in this regard. A critical discovery we’ve made is that every human being shares the same DNA. Thus, we are physically the same on the most basic level. In many other ways we’re also the same. In fact, we’re much more alike than we’re different. Racial, ethnic, and religious differences are rather surface in comparison to the fundamental ways in which we’re alike, such as sharing the same fundamental psychological needs and aspirations. There are, however, significant spiritual ways in which we differ, and in this lies a serious problem.

In a series of channeled works (mentioned in The Collapsing Tower) known as the Ra Material: The Law of One, written by Elkins, Rueckert, and McCarty in the early Eighties, entities are viewed in terms of varying along a dimension of polarity. Positively polarized entities are considered to have an orientation that slightly favors Service to Others, while negatively polarized entities have a near-total orientation toward Service to Self. This is similar to Eisler’s cooperative vs. dominator orientations. These polarity differences must be clearly understood in terms of how they affect planetary healing and the transcendence of humanity.

The Service to Self orientation demands separateness and hierarchy. It fundamentally represents an exaltation of the self-obsessed ego, and aims at self-aggrandizement, dominance and control of others, and elitism. Those of this orientation are extremely materialistic people. The Service to Other orientation works to create connectedness. They are typically warmer and more caring, and exhibit empathy for others, as distinct from their counterparts who appear to lack empathy. On our planet, however, the vast majority of people are not strongly polarized in either the positive or negative direction, in that they’re mostly interested in seeking comfort and little else. This poses a problem.

According to the Ra Material existence is viewed in terms of levels called “densities”, each of which has a number of sub-levels. Density One is the realm that includes the range of basic subatomic particles to inorganic matter to complex organic molecules. Density Two comprises the range of the simplest life, such as viruses, bacteria, and very simple plant life to complex plants and animals. Density Three includes the range of the human evolutionary spectrum of consciousness development. Basically, we are spiritual beings living in animal bodies. After Density Three existence is viewed in terms of four more densities of non-physical existence, culminating in unity with All-That-Is. For us to transcend to the next higher level (Density Four) of spiritual evolution, a greater degree of polarization is required. The impetus for greater polarization, within individuals and for humanity as a whole, is accomplished through what the Ra Material refers to as “catalyst”, which is an impetus to change or awakening. Frequently this involves difficulty, such as hardship, conflict, illness, or some condition that requires profound choice. Such catalyst appears to be designed into the progression of the nine Underworlds and respective thirteen Heavens within each the Underworlds of the Mayan Calendar.

We now are in the Eleventh Heaven (Sixth Day) of the Galactic Underworld. After this there are only two more Heavens before the end-date of October 28, 2011. In the Thirteenth Heaven (Seventh Day) of this current Underworld, which begins on November 3, 2010, we will experience the much accelerated final (Universal) Underworld with each Heaven a little more than 20 days in length. Because the Galactic Underworld is dualistic, in that the light favors the East over the West, feminine over masculine, and right-brain functions over those of the left, there is the likelihood of conflict—within and between individuals, families, and nations. This is why Calleman referred to this Underworld as the Apocalypse. As mentioned previously apocalypse means revelation, and what it will reveal is the nature of our personal polarity as well as the polarity of the human collective. How we individually and collectively respond to this catalyst will determine our survival or demise and whether we spiritually transcend to the next higher spiritual density. It’s very interesting that 2011 is also the date of what The Ra Material calls “harvest”—or transcendence.

Without sufficient polarization we don’t transcend and run the significant risk of planetary destruction by war or ecological disaster. If a sufficient number of people strongly polarize (negatively or positively) transcendence can happen. When this occurs, according to the Ra Material) there will likely be a parting of the ways, wherein negatively polarized beings enter into their own alternate reality and our planet becomes a “new healed Earth” for those who are spiritually polarized in the positive direction. Let’s now examine how the Mayan Calendar has been divinely designed to provide the necessary catalysts for this to happen.

The Sixth Day of the Galactic Underworld

On November 13, 2008 we entered the Sixth Day that will end on November 8, 2009. It is ruled by the goddess of birth, and is juxtaposed to the Fifth Night that is ruled by the god of darkness. As the rule of the god of darkness diminishes, it meets with the rising of the birth and flowering of the light, and it’s in this that great conflict can arise. The new spiritual consciousness that has been developing in the course of the Galactic Underworld now comes into direct conflict with the ego-based, materialistic, and repressive “old way” of hierarchal and elitist authority based on domination (Service to Self polarity). The collapse of the “old way” now begins—but not without a fight. Those of the positive polarity of Service to Others feel the new light and it heartens their resolve to become more positively polarized, while those of the negative Service to Self polarization are threatened with loss of negative polarization and the separate self-sense that relies on this. Thus, the light of the Sixth Day provides catalyst for those already positively polarized to become more positively polarized and bring others into their fold, while it provides catalyst for the negatively polarized to become more so and marshal the weakly polarized from the vast middle to their cause.

Very strong catalyst is provided during the Sixth Day by the escalating collapse of the global economic system based on gluttony, greed, and misuse of the eco-system. It’s more than likely that the entire system will collapse during the course of 2009. In addition it’s highly likely that great tension (polarization) between the new spirituality and global materialistic power will erupt in war between East and West, and most likely in the Middle East. It’s inevitable that catalysts of these magnitudes will move us strongly in one direction or the other. Unless we can attain a significant majority of positive polarity our survival is highly questionable.

Predictions Based on the Sixth Day of the National Underworld

In The Mayan Calendar and the Transformation of Consciousness Calleman has clearly demonstrated that similar events appear to occur in the same Heavens of different Underworlds. Beginning on page 51of The Collapsing Tower—Prophetic Implications – Guidelines From Historical Analogies, I discuss this phenomenon in some detail. With regard to our present situation, if we look at events that took place in the last polarized Underworld we may be able to make some very precise (and disturbing) predictions regarding upcoming events.

The polarized Underworld prior to our present Galactic Underworld was the National Underworld. In the National Underworld, as previously mentioned, the light favored the West, masculine consciousness, and the left-brain hemisphere, while in our current Underworld this situation is reversed. Let’s now examine some of the major events of the Sixth Day of the National Underworld (829 CE to 1223 CE) and extrapolate to the Sixth Day of the Galactic Underworld (November 13, 2008 to November 8, 2009). The stage upon which the events of the Sixth Day of the National Underworld played out was initiated by a catastrophic event that occurred during the prior Fifth Night.

The Western Roman Empire fell in 476 CE, shortly after the beginning of the Fifth Night. This initiated a period of economic and social collapse approximately through the entire Fifth Night that ended in 829 CE, and became known as the Dark Ages (early Middle Ages). It’s interesting to note that during the Fifth Night of the Galactic Underworld, from November 19, 2007 to November 13, 2008, we began to witness what most likely may be the beginning of the collapse of the Western (and perhaps global) economic system.

During the Sixth Day of the National Underworld we saw the birth of feudalism, a highly repressive economic and social system based on elitism, wherein rich landowners basically enslaved the poor and disenfranchised to work the land in exchange for food. In effect this amounted to a caste system that spanned the entirety of the Sixth Day to nearly half of the Sixth Night—from the Ninth to approximately the beginning of the Fourteenth Centuries. In many ways the elitist-dominated system of economic and social servitude has continued on into our time, and particularly in the Third World. It’s no secret that powerful banking elites have maintained this basic format for centuries.

One of the major events that took place starting approximately in the middle of the Sixth Day into the beginning of the Sixth Night of the National Underworld was the Crusades (1096 CE to 1270 CE), wherein the western Church attempted to drive the Muslims out of the Holy Land. This amounted to a war between East and West. In the Galactic Underworld, therefore, we’re likely to see what appears to be shaping-up to a WWIII scenario between Eastern and Western powers centered in the Middle East, possibly by the middle of 2009. This could easily destroy the oil reserves in the area and catapult the world into a full economic and social collapse by turning the “recession” of the Fifth Night into a global depression in the Sixth Day. It’s also possible, and perhaps likely, that significant international conflicts, such as between India and Pakisyan, as well as national conflicts (civil wars) could arise from the polarized tension created by the Sixth Day. It’s important to remember that WWII was the way the Great Depression of the Fifth Night of the Planetary Underworld ended.

What is important to understand, as I’ve reiterated many times is: Knowingly or unknowingly everyone serves the Divine plan of spiritual evolution. Catastrophic economic, political, and/or social events may be secretly engineered by powerful elites for their purposes of solidifying a “New World Order”—a kind of neo-feudalism—, but in the end it really doesn’t matter. Their efforts simply bring about their own ruin, because the unforeseen conditions that result from their efforts inevitably bring about the victory of the light over the dark.

Predictions Based on the Sixth Night of the National Underworld

The ruler of the Sixth Night is the Aztec ‘god before dawn’. And as the adage says, “It’s darkest before the dawn.” During the Sixth Night of the National Underworld (1223 CE – 1617 CE), which included the late Middle Ages (11th to th end of 13th centuries) and a large span of the Renaissance (14th to the end of 17th centuries) a great calamity struck. Robert S. Gottfried stated in The Black Death:

From the MID-THIRTEENTH CENTURY to the end of the fifteenth century, Europe and much of the Middle East, North Africa, and Asia suffered the most severe environmental crisis in history. Biological and climatic determinants influenced virtually every aspect of human life, and did so to a greater degree than at any other time since the beginning of civilization. The most horrific of these determinants was plague. Governed by cycles of insect and rodent ecology, plague epidemics occurred throughout the Late Middle Ages, touching man when conditions were right among fleas and rats for transfer of plague. Perhaps the key to understanding the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, the watershed between medieval and modern civilization, is man’s helplessness before nature.

This was preceded by what has been called the Little Ice Age, wherein from the mid-thirteenth to the mid-fourteenth centuries Europe got colder and wetter. “By the end of the thirteenth century,” says Gottfried, “Europe was in the throes of a classical Malthusian subsistence crisis. Population growth was outstripping food production, and Europe was getting poorer and poorer.” In the beginning years of the Sixth Night. between 1300 and 1347, when the plague first broke out in Europe conditions got even worse. The weather was very cold and wet and famine struck in parts of Europe, and particularly France and the Netherlands. These factors set the stage for mass death from disease.

The Black Death came out of China to the West via trade routes between 1330 -1346. By the mid-fourteenth century China had lost, according to Gottfried’s research, well over half its population. By 1351 Gottfried estimated that Europe lost between 1/3 -1/2 of its population. A decade later a second wave of plague broke out and also created great devastation. Plague recurrences happened every few years for the remainder of the fourteenth and all of the fifteenth centuries, and initiated an era of depopulation that lasted until the mid-sixteenth century. By 1430 Europe’s population was 50% to 75% lower than it was in 1290. Because of depopulation and manpower shortages profound changes took place in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries that changed the course of western history.

Depopulation ended feudalism in the West. Thus the Black Death killed more than people. It killed the “old way”. This is said best by Gottfried in the last paragraph of his book:

The impact of the Black Death, the greatest ecological upheaval, has been compared to that of the two world wars of the twentieth century. To a degree this is true. But the Black Death, compounded as it was by subsequent epidemics of the second pandemic and unstable weather patterns, wrought even more essential change. Civilizations are the result of complex combinations of institutional, cultural, material, and environmental characteristics. When these underpinnings are removed, the civilizations collapse. The environmental crisis of the Late Middle Ages caused existing social and political systems to stagnate or to regress. Deep rooted moral, philosophical, and religious convictions were tested and found wanting. Generally, traditional standards seemed no longer to apply. The effects of this natural and human disaster changed Europe profoundly, perhaps more so than any other series of events. For this reason, alone, the Black Death should be ranked as the greatest biological-environmental event in history, and one of the major turning points of Western Civilization.

This Sixth Night of the National Underworld truly lived up to the name of the Aztec god that ruled it—the god before dawn. The Renaissance (circa 1300 – 1600) overlapped most of the period of the Black Death, but continued on after it. Thus, the dawning of a new consciousness emerged victorious over the darkness of feudalism, ecological devastation, and the Black Death. The Renaissance was a period of new beliefs, inventions, and social organization. The fear began to lift and people ventured out and became more curious. The repressive hold of the Church was challenged and new philosophies emerged, such as Humanism. The printing press was born, thus making knowledge available to the public, because books became affordable. Literacy ceased to be the property of the elite. The net result was an awakening in Europe that included loss of power by the Church, and increase in literacy and education, a sense of individuality, and a desire for exploration.

The Sixth Night of the Galactic Underworld

The Sixth Night of this Underworld will span period from November 8, 2009 to November 3, 2010. There are significant reasons to believe that this Night of the polarized Galactic Underworld will be as devastating as its counterpart Sixth Night of the National Underworld. Remember that time speeds up 20-fold in each subsequent Underworld. Thus, events taking place over nearly 400 years in the Sixth Night of the National Underworld take place in less than one year in the respective Night of the Galactic Underworld, because the Planetary Underworld is between the two.

The following material is based on several years of research into the structure and function of what is known as the New World Order and the vast, highly sophisticated, technologies it’s developed for the purposes of “weather warfare”, electronic population control, and eugenic programs of planetary depopulation of what Kissinger has referred to as “useless eaters”—which is most of us. This is neither science fiction nor vague conspiracy theory. It’s all based on facts that you can access and verify for yourself. In this Newsletter I’ll provide you with highlights of some of the research I’ve done as well as numerous references you can access in order to deepen your knowledge. You’ve probably heard the saying: “Fore-warned is fore-armed.” This has never been more relevant than when it comes to understanding what’s going on in our world at this time and in the near future, who’s behind it, and why.

There’s been a spiritual war going on for centuries on our planet, and it’s now reaching an apex. It’s a war between Light and Dark—between those who, from an elitist sense of separateness, strive to serve only themselves at the expense of others and Nature and those who experience their fundamental connectedness with others, Nature, and All-That-Is. The outcome of this battle won’t be decided with guns, but rather by spiritual polarity. And the direction and strength of one’s polarity will be decided by how one responds to the catalytic events that are most likely to occur during this critical time in our spiritual evolution.

Psychologically adopting the “ostrich defense” and putting your head in the ground in order to deny what’s happening has a serious consequence: When its head is buried it’s plumed butt sticks high in the air. And there are lions around.

In order to educate yourself regarding why our world is the way it is, and what’s behind the seemingly random events that happen, I suggest you read some of the deeply researched works of Dr. John Coleman. Dr. Coleman is a former member of M16, the British secret intelligence organization. He spent many years as an intelligence agent in various parts of the world and was privy to the inner workings of the powerful forces that control the course of world events. He had also spent many years studying the history of what has become known as the New World Order at the British Museum in London. I won’t go into depth regarding this organization at present, but I suggest you read The Conspirator’s Handbook: The Committee of 300, Fourth Edition in order to get a comprehensive understanding of the history and workings of this organization. Just for an introduction, the following is a quote from Chapter One:

Most people believe in happenstance and we appear to be wedded to the notion that things just happen, never that they evolve from a series of events, seemingly unrelated, but a careful student of world events soon learns otherwise. It becomes apparent that nothing happens by chance and that seemingly unrelated events are connected, although the connecting links are usually well hidden from public view. Perhaps the most important confirmation of the existence of a super-controlling body came from President Wilson.

Coleman wrote that Wilson had said:

Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce
and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know there is a power somewhere, so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.

Coleman further stated:

I discovered the same attitude in intelligence circles; no one would speak openly about the “Olympians”, the controlling executive body of the “300” and when they perchance did so, it was with great awe. Yet we had plenty of indication of its existence, if we had but stopped to look and listen to one of the Committee’s senior spokesman, H.G. Wells, who frequently laid out the plans of the Committee for a One World Government-New World Order dictatorship. In “The Open Conspiracy,” Wells stated:

The political world of the Open Conspiracy must weaken, efface, incorporate and supersede existing governments. The open conspiracy is the natural inheritor of socialist and communist euphemisms; it may be in control of Moscow before it is in the control of New York. The character of the Open Conspiracy will now be plainly displayed. It will be a world religion. This large and loose assimilatory mass of groups and societies will definitely and obviously attempt to swallow up the entire population of the world and become a new human community.

Then again:

The organization of this that I call the Open Conspiracy, which will ultimately supply teaching coercive and direct public services to the whole world is the immediate task before all people, a planned World
State is appearing at a thousand points. When accident (or crisis) finally precipitates it, its coming is likely to happen very quickly. Sometimes I feel that generations of propaganda and education may have to precede it. There must be a common faith and law for mankind…

The Depopulation Program

Much has been written regarding reduction of the world population, ostensibly to preserve the ecosystem. When the actual facts are examined, however, what emerges is a very different motivation—a eugenic program of planetary genocide, mostly in the Third World, designed to corner resources and rid the world of “undesirables”. This is a primary objective of the Committee of 300 (the “300) and its subsidiaries. It’s important to understand how these individuals influence governments, the military and, particularly the chemical/pharmaceutical/medical industry to achieve their ends. Although this material is difficult to confront, it’s essential to do so, as awareness and knowledge are fundamental to survival.

Chapter 15 of Coleman’s book is a good summary of the history of the eugenics movement and examination of some of the technologies involved in depopulation. Another excellent summary of this subject is Rick Martin’s six-part series Depopulation of a Planet, published on the Internet. Dr. Leonard Horowitz’ book Emerging Viruses: Aids and Ebola is also an excellent and comprehensive overview, with many reference sources.

In the last few decades The Club of Rome (founded in 1968) has come to lead the depopulation program. This is one of the many subsidiaries of the “300”, each of which serves a specific function. Many eminent world leaders, politicians, industrialists, bankers and academicians belong to various of these groups, such as the Trilateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations and the Bilderberg Group. Not all members are aware of the full scope of activities these groups are involved in, as this is reserved for the highest, and usually the wealthiest and most powerful members.

Historically, war, genocide, food-shortage/famine/starvation, and disease have been the standard ways in which populations were kept in check. What has changed over the centuries, and particularly in the last decades, are the advances in technology that promote greater efficiency in the use of these methods. What we see happening here is true ahrimanic escalation, where technological development exceeds spiritual development by a massive margin. Rudolph Steiner believed that this escalation is the result of forces operating mainly through the Anglo-American alliance, which has become known as the New World Order. The purpose of this alliance, according to Steiner, is hidden from most people involved in it, and is primarily to keep the human spirit earth-bound in order to prevent it from evolving.

This is most clearly seen in terms of the development of the various technologies of destruction. But it’s in the more subtle aspects of these technologies that the dark underside of power and the decidedly non-human intentions of particular individuals become revealed. One can make a case for the development and deployment of sophisticated technologies of destruction for the purpose of defense against powerful enemies. Although most view this as insane, it’s considered understandable. After all, “The history of Man,” said the mathematician/philosopher Ouspensky, “is the history of war.”

A view of history completely different from what you learned in school emerges when we examine event from the spiritual perspective. Manifest Destiny is a good case in point. The idea that was promulgated here is that America had a “spiritual destiny” to expand from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Hitler has a version of this he called “Lebensraum”, or living space. Although estimates vary it’s beyond question that many millions of Native Americans were killed in this “spiritual” endeavor. Through a combination of chemical and biological warfare, mostly during the late eighteenth through the nineteenth centuries, the number of Native Americans was reduced by over 90%. The fact is that the West was won by distributing alcohol and measles- and smallpox-infected blankets westerly. The Calvary then moved in and mopped up after the firestorm of plague and social disintegration. The actual purpose was to steal the Native American’s land—and this is a main reason for all such actions.

De-humanization always precedes depopulation. We must first “objectify” others as primitives, degenerates, or to use the Club of Rome’s pet phrases, useless eaters and undesirables, before we feel justified in destroying them. As we proceed this will become increasingly clear.

Purposely engineered starvation and famine have historically been significant methods of depopulation. Sometimes the methods are brutally direct, such as the destruction of food supplies or large-scale displacement of people onto barren lands. Sometimes the methods are subtle. An example of this is the efforts aimed at the destruction of indigenous peoples in Brazil and other parts of the Third World who are economically encouraged to grow massive amounts of corn to make ethanol. There is much speculation that this could lead to very serious food shortages and starvation of a great number of people in the Third World—which is a major target for depopulation.

The most sophisticated methods of depopulation, however, involve chemical and biological warfare. In A Higher Form of Killing—The Secret Story of Chemical and Biological Warfare (1982) Robert Harris and Jeremy Paxman (cited by Rick Martin in, Depopulation of a Planet Part III) state, with regard to the American stock of nerve gas, “The present arsenals are huge: the “inadequate” stock of nerve gas in the United States is sufficient to kill the entire population of the world four thousand times over.” How is it possible for any sane human being to justify this? This level of overkill in the name of “national security” reveals the underlying paranoia and terror of the out-of-control ego, and the degree to which ahrimanic forces have gained control.

One of the most dramatic examples of the degradation of the human spirit, and the depth of identification with ahrimanic purposes, involves the intentional unleashing of the greatest genocidal plague in human history to date—what Alan Cantwell, M.D. (The Truth About Aids) calls AIDS Bio-warfare. If not for the professional status of the individuals who exposed this act of destruction, it would be easy to dismiss it as more madness of the conspiracy theorists.

Origin, Spread, and Demographics of AIDS

One of the leading medical doctors who exposed the AIDS depopulation program is Alan Cantwell, M.D. In AIDS: A Doctor’s Note on the Man-Made Theory, that appeared on the Internet in April 2008, Cantwell debunks the standard theory promulgated by government epidemiologists and prominent cancer virologists that AIDS originated in African green monkeys, “jumped species” to enter the black population, and then spread to Haiti and the United States.

In an article appearing in the Los Angeles Times on June 2, 1988 Cantwell cited research that refuted the monkey-AIDS connection and stated, “Despite the general acceptance that HIV and AIDS came from monkeys in the rain forest, there is no convincing evidence to prove that HIV and AIDS originated in Africa. What is true is that the first AIDS cases were uncovered in the U.S. in 1979, around the same time AIDS cases were discovered in Africa. In addition, no stored African tissue from the 1970s tests AIDS positive for HIV. And scientists have a hard time explaining how a black heterosexual epidemic centered in Africa could have quickly transformed itself into a white homosexual epidemic in Manhattan.”

The data indicates that the AIDS outbreak in the U.S. started shortly after Hepatitis-B vaccine experiments were carried out on white, promiscuous, and young homosexuals in San Francisco, New York, Denver, Chicago, and St. Louis. “The links,” said Cantwell, “of the gay experiment to the outbreak of AIDS are obvious to anyone who wants to see the connection. Three months after the experiment began, the first cases of AIDS reported to the CDC appeared in young gay men in Manhattan in 1979. The first San Francisco AIDS case appeared in that city in 1980, six months after the Hepatitis-B experiment started there. In June 1981 the AIDS epidemic became ‘official’.”

The AIDS plague in Africa appears to have originated with mass contaminated smallpox vaccinations. A front-page article in the prestigious and world-respected London Times on May 11, 1987 entitled: Smallpox vaccine “triggered AIDS virus”, suggested that the virus directly resulted from the World Health Organization (WHO) smallpox eradication program. The story was killed and never appeared in any major U.S. publication.

Robert B. Strecker, M.D. Ph.D. is another valuable source in this area. Dr. Strecker, a pathologist and practitioner of internal medicine and gastroenterology who also holds a doctorate in pharmacology, has provided much of the technical/medical support for the idea that AIDS was man-made and deliberately unleashed. During 1983 to 1988 he and his attorney brother Ted were hired by an HMO for Security Pacific Bank of California to study the long-term effects of insuring and treating AIDS patients. Their research during this five-year period was so startling and unbelievable that it dramatically altered their lives. Their five-year quest culminated in the creation of The Strecker Memorandum, one of the most controversial videos of our time, and a set of documents called The Bio-Attack Alert. Both of these are available on the Internet.

In a phone interview with Robert Strecker that Dr. Len Horowitz transcribed in Emerging Viruses: AIDS and Ebola, Horowitz asked what convinced him that AIDS was synthetically manufactured. Strecker replied:

What convinced us [The Strecker Group] was the fact that this new agent had suddenly appeared out of nowhere. That the virus had characteristics of animal viruses more so than human viruses, and that then genetic structure of the AIDS virus actually looks like the viruses that appeared in animals that would not normally adapt themselves in humans…

What happened is that the virus either mutated in cattle and sheep, and then was artificially adapted to humans by growing it in human tissue cultures, which they (virologists) do and in which they are easily manipulated in that manner—or the virus was actually constructed in a laboratory by gene manipulation, which was available to scientists in the early ‘70s although many of the techniques were not talked about until the mid ‘70s, because the biowarfare laboratories throughout the world have always been about five to ten years ahead of other laboratories working on all kinds of projects.

A 2008 Internet article that summarizes The Strecker Memorandum put out by The Strecker Group called, “Is AIDS Man Made” states:

The most dreaded fear that all oncologists (cancer doctors), virologists, and immunologists live with is that some day cancer, in one form or another, will become a contagious disease, transferable from one person to another. AIDS has now made that fear a reality.

Although HIV/AIDS hasn’t increased at the rate of doubling each year as Strecker predicted, the numbers are enormous. According to the Worldwide HIV & AIDS Statistics Summary (until the end of 2007): “The number of people living with HIV has risen from about 8 million in 1990 to more than 33 million today, and is still growing. Around 69% of people living with HIV are in sub-Saharan Africa.”

Wangari Maathai of Kenya, the first African woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize, forcefully stated that AIDS was man-made and purposely created as a bio-weapon. An Internet article, “AIDS Created as Bio-Warfare” discusses her response to Asian and European media which were reported in the East Africa Standard, “When she first blamed HIV/AIDS on ‘some sadistic scientists’, Professor Maathai kicked up a storm, leaving some experts outraged and others supporting her”, the Standard reported. Quoting the article:

“Although I am a biologist, I have not done any research. I may not be able to say who developed the HIV virus but it was meant to wipe out the Black race,” she said. Africa accounts for 25 million out of the estimated 38 million people across the world infected with HIV/AIDS, and the vast majority of infected Africans are women, according to the UNAIDS estimates. “Black people are dying more than any other people on this planet”, Maathai told a press conference in Nairobi a day after winning the prize for her work in human rights and reversing deforestation across Africa…The unspoken truth is that both the United Nations and the United States have promoted so-called “population control” for decades. What better agent for the reduction of population than a man-made virus that will take care of millions of so-called “useless eaters”?

You can download AIDS: “The Manufactured Virus” from the Internet. This article includes a number of recommended readings on the subject, including the history of secret military biological and chemical warfare testing on the American public. The article cites many books and Internet sources that support the idea of the man-mad origin of AIDS.

The research done by Dr. Len Horowitz in Emerging Viruses: AIDS and Ebola is perhaps the most comprehensive treatment regarding “designer viruses” used for depopulation. In his book he builds a strong case that Dr. Robert Gallo, the recognized discoverer of the AIDS virus, may have actually created it a decade earlier when he was top retrovirologist at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) that took over the Fort Detrick bio-weapons testing facility in 1970.

What I find most intriguing about Horowitz’ work is his examination of the man-made AIDS plague in the overall socio-political context. He quotes the French microbiologist Rene’ Dubos who considered the effects of socio-political and environmental factors had on epidemics: “The germ is nothing; the terrain is everything.” In examining the AIDS plague it’s clear that the terrain was one of great social and political upheaval, as anyone who lived through the Sixties and Seventies could testify.

The Sixties was a time of both hope and despair. The assassination of JFK in 1963 sent a chill tremor through the country, and the unmistakable sense that something was very wrong in America. The Viet Nam war was in its beginning stage, as was a generational divide. “It was during this bleak period of American history,” noted Horowitz, “that biological weapons contractors began to realize the possibility of genetically engineered delivery systems for untraceable genocide.”

During the mid-Sixties many people believed that a coup had taken place in America, and we were in danger of losing our freedoms. J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI and the CIA seemed to be functioning without any oversight. It was becoming evident that a kind of malignant “shadow government” was growing in power—all under the guise of fighting suspected Communist subversives and their sympathizers who had infected the fabric of America. The actual reality, however, was quite different. The paranoid accusers were the disease and the accused were the victims. Quoting Horowitz:

The American political system, infected by the most evil forces imaginable—under Hoover, Lansky, and the military-industrial complex—functioned metaphorically like the retroviruses Gallo and his coworkers were about to create. Both macroscopic and microscopic menaces transmitted disinformation and created the many pathological life forms needed to control, grow, kill, and remain undetected.

The military-industrial complex in association with organized crime had overrun the nations natural immune system—the checks and balances for truth and justice established under the United States Constitution. American government became a cancerous growth that consumed rather than abetted the public’s health and welfare.

One of Horowitz’ most salient observations was, “…McCarthy mania, which raged overtly during the 1940s and 1950s, continued covertly throughout the 1970s. Most suspiciously, gays and blacks were accused of communist inclinations—roughly the same populations devastated by the AIDS epidemic.” Of greatest concern was rising tide of African nationalism. Quoting Horowitz:

The purpose of foreign espionage efforts in Africa was considered both urgent and multifaceted. Within the highest circles of American government, officials feared that American civil rights groups and militant organizations such as the Black Panthers had received direct aid from communist supporters in Russia, Asia, and Africa. Concern over the exploding Third World population, and the inherent threat this posed to white supremacist ideology and capitalistic expansion abroad, directly influenced the CIA’s targeting of the “New Left”.

Not long after this the measles/smallpox immunization campaign was initiated, and not long after this the AIDS epidemic broke out in Central West Africa.

In the last few years many more of these “designer viruses” have been created. The sheer insanity of this goes without saying, particularly with the knowledge that viruses have the capacity to mutate and get out of control. With respect to this a warning offered by Cantwell to the manufacturers and “distributors” of such agents is timely:

Biowarfare agents are designed solely to kill large numbers of civilians. And any country that is willing to employ and deploy these agents should be fully aware that—What Goes Around, Comes Around.

Chemtrails: Toxic Aerosols

If you access “Chemtrails” on the Internet you’ll discover a plethora of information regarding this method of spraying toxic chemicals and pathogens. You’ve probably noticed the trails left in the sky by some jet aircraft, how they criss-cross frequently to turn blue skies cloudy, sometimes in a matter of a few hours. Furthermore, you may’ve noticed that after particularly intense Chemtrail sprayings many people come down with respiratory and other problems. In this section I’ll give a rather simple treatment of this complex and extensively researched subject, indicating only a few of the relevant facts, and offer some ideas of the purposes behind their use.

First of all, it’s beyond question that the government is orchestrating this aerial spraying which was initiated in the late 1990s. In the initial stages military aircraft—KC-135 and KC-10—were used to crisscross the sky, and were painted white to look like commercial planes. Later, commercial planes were also used.

Anna Farr ( quotes an article written by Marcus Dalton of the Las Vegas Tribune:

Congressman Dennis Kucinich of Ohio authored the Space Preservation Act of 2001, which sought a “permanent ban against weapons in space,” specifically banning Chemtrails as weapons. But in a subsequent version of the bill the “Chemtrails” language disappeared entirely. The missing words suggest an eyes-wide-open denial, which says as much about the cover-up as it does about the spraying that’s plainly visible in the sky.

The government, when no longer able to deny their existence, has routinely denied the danger of Chemtrails, which behave very differently from normal vapor trails of jets, known as contrails. While contrails disappear after a short while, Chemtrails remain in the lower atmosphere and spread out to eventually float down to earth. Frequently, multiple Chemtrails can be observed crossing the sky in a variety of patterns, blanketing entire areas on the ground. The sky typically becomes quite overcast and cloudy when this happens, which suggest that material in the Chemtrails absorbs moisture from the atmosphere, but usually not enough to rain. As Clifford Carnicon (, one of the foremost Chemtrail researchers, has said, the government’s claim that these aerosol operations are designed to slow down global warming is in direct contradiction to the facts. Global warming involves the heating of the lower atmosphere, which is exactly what Chemtrails do. They would have to be in the upper atmosphere to be effective in any way.

Edward Teller, known as “father of the H-bomb”, previously proposed aerosol seeding of the upper atmosphere with specks of titanium to reflect the sun’s heat and reduce global warming. Instead, the Air Force planes are seeding the lower atmosphere with toxic aluminum compounds. Further, why would these planes be spraying Chemtrails at night if they were done for the purpose of diminishing global warming?

What are they for and why are they being done on such a large scale? In July of 2000 investigative journalist William Thomas ( said:
Over the past two years—and possibly longer—one of the biggest covert operations ever undertaken by a military in peacetime has caused illness and consternation across America as positively identified U.S. Air Force aerial tankers continue to spread broad white plumes in patterns that defy civil air regulations, public health and air pollution laws—and the physics of normal contrail formation.

As hundreds of thousands of North Americans jam hospital emergency rooms in a nearly year-round epidemic of, sometimes fatal, “flu-like” illness, it has become difficult not to believe that some kind of population cull is underway.

It’s unlikely, however, that a depopulation program would be carried out by aerial spraying, primarily because of its indiscriminate nature, catastrophic economic consequences, and the possibility of armed revolt. The administration of pathogens under the guise of immunizations is a more likely procedure—as was amply evidenced with regard to the AIDS epidemic. The probable purpose of Chemtrails is to weaken the immune system and create recurrent illnesses in order to render individuals more susceptible to pathogens, electromagnetic and other pollution, and mass media brainwashing to create fear and resignation to authority.

It’s the general consensus among the many individuals who are investigating Chemtrails that, in addition to weakening our immune systems, they are being used to create decreased rainfall and drought. Carnicom has suggested that cloud formation in atmospheres with less than 70% humidity requires the introduction of water-absorbing fine particles. He further suggests that the introduction of carbon dioxide- and water-absorbing barium salts into the toxic Chemtrail mix causes the atmosphere to get dryer and thinner because the moisture is redirected out toward space. As long as Chemtrail clouds are present the sun is reflected back into space, but when the clouds dissipate the land and air become even more heated. This decreases rainfall and increases the likelihood of forest fires, which is exactly what happened in Montana, Washington, and British Columbia in 2003, and now in California in the last few years.

With regard to the use of aluminum in Chemtrails:

Aluminum is known to have a number of toxic side effects. In animal studies it has been shown to decrease nervous system activity by blocking the electrical discharge of nerve cells, and to inhibit the uptake of dopamine, norepinepherine, and serotonin in the brain. This is associated with memory loss, dementia, confusion and disorientation—the primary symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease. In fact the Alzheimer death rate went from 0.2 per 100,000 people in 1979 to 18.0 per 100,000 in 2000, an incredible jump of almost 100 times. In 2000 the National Institute of Mental Health said that only 10% of Alzheimer’s cases are genetically caused—which means that 9 out of 10 are environmentally-based. There is, however, no proof that aluminum pots and pans play a significant role.

Reports of illnesses markedly increase typically 2-3 days after Chemtrail spraying. These include upper respiratory distress, pneumonia, intestinal distress, weakness, dizziness, headaches, arthritic symptoms, depression, and a variety of other symptoms that lead individuals to believe they have the “flu”. The fact is that the complaints result from the poisons and bio-hazardous materials dropped on us from the Chemtrail aerial spraying. Carnicom and his associates have discovered a number of dangerous additives to the Chemtrails. To name a few: bacilli and molds, streptomyces, enterobacteriaceae, human white blood cells, and a variety of bacilli and toxic molds known to produce heart disease, meningitis and upper respiratory and gastrointestinal problems, carcinogen zinc cadmium sulfide.

On New Year’s Day 2008 my family and I observed a great number of Chemtrails crisscrossing in the atmosphere over Palm Springs. As they fanned into wispy clouds we could observe subtle multi-colored halos when these clouds passed in front of the sun, much like the colors gasoline makes on water. Researchers (cited by believe that this effect is the result of the inclusion of highly carcinogenic ethelene dibromide in the spray. A few hours later the sky became very overcast, and two days later a surge of “flu” broke out in Los Angeles, which experienced a similar Chemtrail spraying. During the first few days of February another concentrated Chemtrail spraying occurred in the skies over Los Angeles, and was also followed by a rash of illnesses. Most of these cases involved upper respiratory and gastrointestinal distress. Frequently the illnesses were not accompanied with fever, suggesting that viral infection was not directly responsible.

Since the advent of Chemtrail activity a new, rare but apparently increasing, condition known as Morgellon’s disease has emerged. It’s currently under investigation by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in conjunction with Kaiser Permanente of California. You can access a number of cites on the Internet that delineate this new condition/disease and link it to aerial spraying. Briefly, Morgellon’s creates skin lesions that contain fiber and filament-like strands that cause intense itching, painful stinging and skin disfigurement.

Carnicom and Smith (http// studied these fibers using digital magnification at approximately 2000x. At the lowest magnification of 700x these researchers could easily discount the criticism that these fibers were human hair, which has a width of 60-70 microns, because the fibers measured at 10-12 microns. At 1400x magnification they noted smaller elliptical structures within the fibers, suggesting they are biological in nature, rather than any form of natural or artificial fiber. At 5600x internal sub-fibrous fibers were identified within segments of the primary fiber, and these measured at the micron and sub-micron levels. It was also determined that the spheroid or elliptical structures measured at approximately one micron, which is virus size. Lastly, these researchers observed “budding” structures appearing on the edges of the fibers at irregular intervals. This suggests that they are likely involved in some kind of growth or reproductive process, and are likely related to the spread of disease.

The following is from

There is some speculation that Morgellon’s fibers may be biological nano machines designed to copy the DNA of viruses, bacteria and fungi already existing in the body—genetically created biowarfare tools. These fibers were submitted to Dr. Hildegarde Stanginer, an environmental toxicologist (her research has opened the door to proteinomics, enzynomics and genomics, and has been recognized by Johns Hopkins University/Pandey Lab and Harvard University’s Medical College’s small molecule genome—parenthesis added) and were identified as nonowires at an MIT lab. These Morgellons nanowires are able to receive microwave, ELF (extremely low frequency), and radio waves. The fiber material is believed to create insect-like pseudo-life forms. Staninger believes that these fibers not only receive and broadcast frequencies to create these life-forms, but may also serve to create disease.

In Morgellons Defined, (12/7/07) the disorder is believed to be the result of:

A communicable (nanotechnology triggered) invasion of human tissues in the form of self-assembling, self-replicating, nanotubules, nanowires, nanoarrays with sensors, and other nano-configurations, some carrying genetically-altered and spliced DNA/RNA. The nano machines thrive in extreme alkaline pH conditions and uses the body’s bioelectric energy and other (unidentified) elements for power…There is some evidence that these tiny machines possess their own batteries. They are believed to receive specific tuned microwave, EMF (electromagnetic frequency) and ELF signals.

On December 1, 1998 Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen is quoted in to have said:

One can envision the development of electromagnetic energy sources, the output of which can be pulsed, shaped, and focused, that can couple with the human body in a fashion that would allow one to prevent voluntary muscular movements, control emotions (and thus actions), produce sleep, transmit suggestions, interfere with both short-term and long-term memory, produce and experience set, and delete an experience set. It would also appear possible to “talk” to selected adversaries in a fashion that would be most disturbing to them.

The fact is that the technology Cohen envisioned is definitely here now, and was more than likely in existence when he was Secretary of Defense.

Along these lines it’s important to understand that, in addition to toxic material in Chemtrails that’s known to suppress the immune system and promote disease, there’s also an electromagnetic component to aerosol spraying. The artificial clouds created by Chemtrails, which most people either don’t notice or take for “normal”, also have the effect of making the atmosphere more conductive to electromagnetic radiation. This is done by including barium in the Chemtrail mix. Increased atmospheric conductivity has the effect of increasing the efficiency of HAARP (High Altitude Auroral Research Project), a microwave generator located in Alaska used to create ionospheric heating, weather modification, geophysical effects such as earthquakes, and altering mood and brainwave activity via ELF transmissions ( Detailed descriptions of HAARP technology can be found in Manning and Begich’s Angels Don’t Play This HAARP: Advances in Tesla Technology and Begich’s Controlling the Human Mind.

The electromagnetic difference between the earth’s surface and the ionosphere create a spectrum of extremely low frequency wave forms which mimic human brain waves. This is thought to be critical in terms of linking human beings to the earth. Begich’s research has shown that HAARP microwave transmissions aimed at the ionosphere can alter this relationship. Frequencies have been designed which create a range of effects in individuals and masses that range from apathy and depression to mania, and include a variety of physical effects such as nausea, memory loss, fatigue and illness.

Another potential use of HAARP’s capability of “blanketing” very large areas of the earth’s surface with extremely low frequencies is the activation of pathogens spread by aerosol spraying of large segments of the population. I’ve not researched this area enough to make any definitive statements, but my guess is that it’s a fertile area for investigation. If interested you can start by accessing, for example, ELF-pathogen activation or ELF/microwave activation of Chemtrail pathogens.

Mycoplasms and the New Diseases

Sharon Briggs ( reviewed the findings on mycoplasma pathogens in 2000 and offered the following information:

Mycoplasmas are the smallest organisms known. They were discovered over 100 years ago and were not usually associated with disease. However, in the past 30 years the organism has been “weaponized” to become more lethal—part of the germ warfare arsenal. This discovery was made by Drs. Garth and Nancy Nicholson, highly acclaimed microbiologists. Dr. Garth Nicholson was nominated for a Novel Prize in cell microbiology and is a board member of the American Association of Cancer Research.

Micoplasmas, unlike bacteria, have no cell wall, and this enables them to invade tissue cell’s nutrients in order to use the cell to replicate itself. When the Mycoplasma breaks out of the cell, it takes a piece of the host cell membrane with it. When the immune system attacks the Mycoplasma, it also gets “turned on” to attacking the host cell. In this way an autoimmune condition can begin. Autoimmune conditions associated with Mycoplasmas include arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, Gult War Syndrome, and AIDS. The Mycoplasma has also been reported to be capable of survival for two hours outside the body. Thus, the possibility exists that aerosol spraying by aircraft, in addition to vaccines and inoculations, could serve as a pathogen dispersal method.

Polarization, Survival, and Spiritual Transcendence in the Sixth Night

The powerful catalyst provided by the Sixth Night is designed to maximize polarization for the purpose of spiritual transcendence. To reiterate once again, it’s not important whether the catalytic events are man made or natural. All who exist serve the Divine evolutionary plan.

The major predicted catalytic event during the Sixth Night of Galactic Underworld, based on what happened during the same Night of the National Underworld will likely be a significant partial die-off of humanity. To most an event of this nature will seem like a cruel punishment meted out by an uncaring god—and particularly to those who exist in the vast middle between strong positive and strong negative polarization. If such an event does transpire, as seems likely given the escalating ecological disaster that is enveloping our planet and the machinations of those actively involved in programs of depopulation, you must be prepared. This doesn’t mean becoming a gun-toting survivalist, hiding in the woods, and hording food. Preparation first starts with understanding. The first fact you must understand is that you are responsible for your physical survival and spiritual evolvement. The second is that your state of spiritual evolvement, more than anything else, will determine your physical survival.

In The Collapsing Tower and prior Newsletters I discussed the illusion of material causation—the idea that all events in the material world are physically caused, and that this belief was a product of the materialistic Planetary Underworld. You can refer back to this material to get some grounding in this concept, as it forms the basis of most of what will be discussed from this point on.

The psycho-spiritual condition of disconnectedness is the root cause of all of our problems—personal, interpersonal, international, and ecological. When we are disconnected from our feelings we cause physical problems in our bodies, and in our interpersonal relationships. When we deny or disconnect from our own feelings we also deny the feelings of others. This causes us to treat them like objects. Similarly, we lose our connectedness to the environment, and to the feelings of other life forms, thereby creating ecological damage. The understanding that we must gain here is that we must start with ourselves.

You must first admit the existence of your dark side—the angry/hateful, selfish, rapacious, vengeful, domineering, and power-hungry parts of yourself. This is what Jung referred to as the Shadow. These aspects of your psyche are not unconscious. They exist in what can be thought of as “pre-consciousness”—just below the surface of consciousness. They’re the parts of ourselves that emerge when we’re tired, sick, pressured, or under the influence of alcohol or drugs. We can become aware of them, but the vast majority people choose not to, in order to maintain and acceptable self-concept or social persona. Fundamentally, we do this to prevent rejection or condemnation. This causes us to live lonely lives of pretense, disconnected from the totality of what we are, hidden from others and frequently ourselves, in an existential state of fear of being “found out.”

The cost of doing this is enormous. When we buy social acceptability we pay for it with life-force. This weakens us and ultimately diminishes our spiritual growth and survival potential. Before examining how this happens, and what we can do about it, let me be clear that the solution isn’t about identifying with what you may think of as the crazed, primitive lunatic raging in the basement of your mind, and then acting out all of its selfish desires, prejudices, and grudges. I knew a number of people who did this in the Sixties, and the project didn’t go well. The unbridled indulgence of every buried impulse not only dissipated them, but frequently shredded the fabric of their lives, sometimes resulting in jail-time for a number of the more dedicated practitioners.

Seeking truth in the seething pit of impulse below what Freud called the “thin patina of civilization” is a fool’s mission. What, then, do we do with it? This is where alchemy comes in.

Alchemy isn’t what has been promulgated as the silly medieval theory that lead can be transformed into gold by intoning certain magical incantations. This could probably be done more efficiently in a modern particle accelerator, but that’s beside the point. The essence of alchemy is the transformation of “leaden” material substance into “golden” spiritual light. It’s derived from Taoist and Hindu techniques of withholding physical orgasm during sex in order to drive the energy onto a higher spiritual plane. It’s the basis of tantric yoga and what’s been referred to in esoteric and occult literature as the “hermetic union.” As such, it was frowned upon by the medieval Church.

Actually, “frowned upon” is a bit too mild, because during the time of the Inquisition, roughly from the 13th through the 18th centuries, comprising half of the Sixth Day and the entirety of the Sixth Night of the National Underworld, one could be burned at the stake for such activities. Interestingly, parallels exist between the Sixth Day and Night of the National and Galactic Underworlds. Consider the rise of Christian and Muslin Fundamentalism. These religious zealots are capable of deeds that would meet with approval from any serious Inquisitor with regard to violation of fundamentalist religious ideologies.

Although the kind of alchemical transformation we’ll deal with in this Newsletter doesn’t involve sex or occult practices, it may be no less threatening to the modern fundamentalist demagogues that plague us today. It’s my guess that the higher dimensional ahrimamic ego-based entities want to keep positive polarization to a minimum in order to bias positive transcendence to a minimum, and one good way to do this is to prevent the transformation of the Shadow into light.

There’s a big difference between “niceness” and “goodness.” Niceness is based on the denial or conscious hiding of negativity. When you tell a kid to “be nice” you’re telling him to pretend he doesn’t have feelings he does have, i.e., “Don’t tell ugly and nasty Aunt Flossie that she’s ugly and nasty. Be nice!” After a while the kid might start to believe that the truth of his feelings is ugly and nasty, and not Aunt Flossie. Religion even teaches us that niceness is a virtue, and that you should be ashamed of having “un-nice” thoughts and feelings—that you should hide them from others (and ultimately yourself) if you want God to think you’re “good”. But this isn’t good at all. Good has to do with the truth. Of course, you can’t run around telling the truth to everyone, because most people don’t want to hear it. But you don’t have to deny it within yourself.

When you hide from or deny the truth of your negative feelings you are hurting yourself. There’s a rule I discovered talking with individuals who did cancer research: Nice guys die first! This is because the suppressed feelings create a negative hormonal and bio-electrical climate within the body that promotes immuno-suppression and disease. Thus, not only is positive polarization diminished but illness is also promoted.

The net effect of this is to increase the proportion and relative strength of negatively polarized entities, as they are more than willing to embrace the Shadow and use it for their benefit and, in addition, increase their absolute numbers by causing the illness and death of weakly polarized positive entities due to disease.

Increasing Positive Polarization

We’ll now examine two methods you can use to increase positive polarization: 1) bringing shadow elements within us into the light, and 2) the use of tonglin to further increase positive polarization.

1) Transforming the Shadow into Light

The first step is to bring the Shadow into the light of consciousness. You must accept its existence. Acceptance simply means acknowledgement. You just admit it’s there. You don’t have to like it, agree or disagree with it, or do anything about it. Because it exists outside of everyday conscious awareness, but not deeply buried in the unconscious, this can be done by making a decision to acknowledge the less agreeable parts of yourself—what you don’t want to know about your personality, but is nonetheless there.

Studying your Enneagram personality type is helpful here. I discuss this in The Collapsing Tower and prior Newsletters. You can also study Riso and Hudson’s The Wisdom of the Enneagram and Personality Types: Using the Enneagram for Self-Discovery to define and study your personality type, its Basic Fear, control mechanisms, and other characteristics. If you look at how your personality type functions in the Low Normal and Unhealthy ranges, you have basically penetrated the world of the Shadow. This doesn’t mean that you usually function at these lower levels, but the tendencies are there. By studying these tendencies you can begin to see the Shadow more clearly which, in most ways, is what Eckhart Tolle calls the Pain Body.

The act of bringing this part of you into the light of conscious awareness is the first and, usually, the most difficult step. Once you’ve had the courage to do this you can then begin the process of its neutralization. You do this by employing the technique of self-observation/detachment delineated in The Collapsing Tower. I’ll briefly explain this.

You can conceptualize the Shadow as an emotionally-charged thought form that functions like an artificial elemental or parasitic “entity”. It doesn’t have an independent existence of it’s own, but you experience it that way. It feeds off your agreement that it’s powerful and dangerous, and must be kept hidden—even from you. When you break this agreement and bring it into conscious awareness you significantly diminish it’s power. No longer can it function under the cloak of invisibility.

An interesting metaphor came to my mind when I took this step years ago. I likened my Shadow to a dog I had, but pretended I didn’t own. The dog would run around and annoy, threaten and sometimes bite others, including me, but I wouldn’t acknowledge that I owned it. The problem was that everyone else knew it was my dog and would hold me responsible for what it did.

Once you’ve acknowledged the Shadow’s existence the next step involves observing it. Look at what triggers it into action, how it operates, and what it does to your energy level. Take some time with this. During this period of observation don’t try to do anything about it. In particular, don’t suppress or justify it. You need to get the full picture. At some point you’ll realize that it’s integrity is maintained by thoughts. Listen to your internal dialog when its operating, and you’ll become aware that its quite dependent on certain beliefs about yourself, others, and life. After you’ve observed this for a while, and you come to realize that the Shadow is simply a disowned part of yourself—an illusion created by your unwillingness to own up to the totality of your ego/personality structure—you can decide to dissolve it or keep it. Thus: You can choose to maintain the shadow and identify consciously with it, thereby increasing negative polarization or you can choose to dis-identify with it, allow it to dissipate into free energy, and use this energy to increase positive polarization. If you choose to dis-identify with it you can then go to the next step, which is detachment. If you don’t, you’ll stay stuck at the fearful ego level and live a paranoid existence that will require you to dominate, control, and otherwise oppress others to maintain an illusion of being powerful.

You might think that this is a ridiculous choice, but it isn’t. About 25 years ago I offered a weekend seminar aimed at discovering and eradicating destructive control mechanisms in relationships. It never occurred to me that anyone would want to keep these mechanisms once he or she discovered what they were. To my amazement several people in the course of the first three seminars not only wanted to keep them, but they wanted help in refining them. This caused me to discontinue these seminars.

Detachment isn’t a disowning of responsibility. Nor is it a negation of feelings. Detachment, as I’ve stressed in previous Newsletters, involves a disconnection from thought. Because thought structures energy, and the Shadow is a complex energy mass that maintains its integrity by you giving significance to specific thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes, when you disconnect the energy mass from the thought-forms that keep that energy mass intact, it then begins to disintegrate. It becomes free energy. An alchemical transformation now begins. Thus, making the Shadow conscious and detaching the thoughts that maintain its integrity gives you the power to consciously increase your positive polarity.

The entire ego self can be viewed as a Shadow of the true Self, and you can use the same method to dissolve it into the Self, thereby shifting your identification to the truth of who you really are. This is the essence of positive spiritual evolvement, and will be examined in greater depth in subsequent Newsletters.

Polarization on the National and International Levels

In the earlier part of this Newsletter I discussed the “shadow government”, or New World Order, based on elitism and a hierarchal neo-feudalistic social system. This, coupled with the depopulation of “undesirables” and “useless eaters” represents the “dark side” of the human collective ego—the collective Shadow—comprised of those parts of ourselves we don’t wish to acknowledge or take responsibility for. Someone once said (I forget who) that if we don’t own the Hitler inside of us we’ll collectively create another one. Manson’s statement in a Rolling Stone interview that he’s “the arm of destruction for the nice people in Palo Alto” mirrors the same idea.

Therefore, who can say for sure which people are “evil” and which are “good” if the “nice people” maintain their so-called goodness by denying the destructiveness inside of them, inadvertently causing it to be projected onto others who then act it out. If an individual is stuck at the ego level of spiritual development (actually stuck in a delusion of who they actually are), it isn’t a great stretch to imagine that they’ll likely incorporate the projected negativity of the rest of us. The karmic consequence of denying or hiding from one’s Shadow, therefore, could be to cause others to incorporate those projected elements in order to build a stronger sense of ego-power, and then suppress, dominate, or otherwise control the very people who deny those elements within themselves.

Thus, it’s not enough to point fingers and expose the evils of the Shadow government. Even if we try, condemn, and hang every last one of them we can be sure others will come in their wake—and this is because those who deny the “evil” inside of themselves need outer “evildoers” in order to maintain the delusion that they are wholly good and righteous. Good and evil are simply products of the dualistic mind. On the higher and lower levels of consciousness evolution they don’t exist. Consider the following:

“And why beholdest thou the mote (or splinter) that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam (or plank) in thine own eye.” King James version, Matthew 7:3.

“Therefore you have no excuse, every one of you who passes judgment, for in that which you judge another, you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things.” Romans2:1

“Here is a good rule for reprovers; first reform thy self.” Henry’s Concise Bible Commentary.

Basically, we need evildoers and enemies to keep the heat off ourselves—and George Bush isn’t the only one proven this. So, on the most fundamental level it all goes back to each and every one of us. Each of us comprises the collective of humanity—which isn’t something “outside”.

2). Tonglin and How Do We Heal the Spiritually Sick Bad Guys That are Destroying Us and the Planet?

“Physician, heal thyself.” Luke 4:23

You can consult Pema Chodron’s Comfortable With Uncertainty for an excellent description of the method of realizing connectedness with Tonglin. The rudiments of this method were explained in Newsletter #6. Basically, you breathe in the pain of others—their fear, grief, hate, anger, alienation, misery, and all the rest of it—and you then breathe out to them your joy, happiness, well being, etc. This causes you to realize that we all share the same pain and are capable of experiencing the same joy. It removes the illusion of separateness and creates compassion. It also powerfully influences polarization.

When you breathe in the psychic pain of others you lift some of their burden of negativity, thus adding to positive polarization. By breathing out your joy you further increase their (and your own) positive polarization. This has the effect of positively polarizing the vast middle of humanity that are weakly polarized. It also has the effect of weakening the negative polarization of those leaning in that direction, thereby increasing the likelihood that they may move in the positive direction. For those who are strongly polarized in the negative direction, the effect will likely be met with efforts aimed at strengthening their already negatively polarized state. For some, however, the effect may be a weakening of their negativity.

By owning and diminishing your Shadow, and through the practice of tonglin you do the greatest service to yourself, others, and the planet.
