Unintended Consequences

Every time we have intellectually interfered with a billion-year-old process, that intellectual interference has been paid for with a bitter price. And intellect never learns. If we can make money off of it, anything goes. 

Joseph Chilton Pearce

Swirling and turning in this mad world we create, unintended consequences seem to percolate up like gas bubbles bursting in murky waters above the La Brea tar pits. Speaking to a colleague I mentioned casually, “You know the controversy surrounding 5G?” He replied, “Do you know Peter Diamandi? He’s the Founder and Director of the Singularity University, https://su.org/. Here is the link to his keynote on YouTube. Near the end he speaks about 5G.” https://youtu.be/ZeHoFuOtUp8. Later, I looked at the keynote and the Singularity University site:

Anyone can change the world: We equip leaders, organizations, and startups with the mindset, tools and network to tackle the worlds’ biggest challenges, to make a lot of money, and help humanity. The Future of AI: Seize the Opportunity…

Seeds of Love, Extinction or not? Where do we go from here?

A colleague suggested I view a conversation with Deepak Chopra and Vananda Shiva; Seeds of Love.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WarbGqmMig8

I have had brief encounters with both. Deepak noted in the dialogue:

The environment is our extended body. The air is our breath. The sun is the source of life. The Earth is recycling as our physical body. The rivers and oceans, and even the puddles are our circulation. The trees are our lungs. So, we have a personal body; we have a universal body, and they are both equally ours. And, unless we have this emotional, spiritual shift, then the war will continue. What we need is a critical mass that can see reality as it is--that you, as a biological organism, are not separate from so called environment. In fact, you are a product of that; you are an activity of that.

Quite right. My collection of essays; Where do we go from here? linked below, addresses what Chopra is describing by revealing why we don’t live in the reality that we are not separate from the environment. Below is my correspondence to both.

Re: Seeds of Love, Extinction or not? Where do we go from here?

Dear Deepak and Vandana,

Time is short, a decade, perhaps two. If the attached; Where do we go from here? resonates, perhaps we can collaborate and meet this challenge together.

The Killer Flu is Coming

This is getting tiresome. Anybody out there?

Ever since 2002, we’ve archived newsletters chronicling all the Boutique Epidemics:

Swine Flu in 2002

Avian Flu in 2006

SARS

Ebola in 2014

the fake Disney measles  campaign of 2015

ZIKA in 2016

the fake flu “epidemic” of 2018 the non-existent measles outbreak of 2019, to name a few. Check Newsletter Archive. Remember?

Boutique means made to order, manufactured, evanescent, etc. We showed how each one of these false epidemics followed precisely the same blueprint:

1. Claim a disease threat from a new bug, in an exotic location

2. Instill worldwide panic with unrelenting media

3. Offer a medical solution, usually a vaccine

4. Spend the money

5. The threat disappears never to be heard of again

Profit From Harm

Some years ago it became clear, at least to me, that there was a hidden agenda to reduce the human population. Further, that the primary strategy would be stealth-biology. See, When Bad Is Good. So shocking were the implications that I sat on the essay for several years, appreciating that it would appear and be neutered as some nutcase conspiracy. In that draft, it was clear that the cartels that shorten the lives of human beings or prevent their conception would profit from the harm they caused. Yesterday, in Albany NY, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. made the same claim, at least regarding Big Pharma and the Medical Cartel profiting from the harm they induce.

Please take the time to listen to Kennedy defend the lives and wellbeing of our children.

Winter Silstice 2019

Quietly I return
each winter when the moon is full
and the stars sparkle bright in the black sky.

I return to this silent place that has been
in my heart and soul of humanity – forever
when the heavens pause
in this stillness we all feel.

The ever-present cycle of birth, growth and blossoming,
the wisdom of autumn and death of each heartbeat,
breath filing each cell, organ, limb, body, tree,
mountain, planet and galaxy dancing the dance
of transformation and renewal,
we are reminded of in this quiet place.

Santa Isn't Fat and Angels Don't Have Wings


But there is a Santa and there certainly are angels.

The sights, sounds and smells, the music, songs and winter chill that say it’s Christmas, tug at us deeply and have for thousands of years. Visiting the Vatican and cathedrals in Europe, one is surrounded by statues, paintings, symbols and icons. Even the architecture is designed to lift us up, at least to look up, ascend, and perhaps even transcend.

Social Anxiety and Depression

Here is the link to the full collection; Where do we go from here?

Recently the Board Chair of Ventura Unified School District, along with two VUSD high school principals, visited our campus for a lengthy tour. When asked why they were visiting, Board Chair Sabrena Rodriguez said that the "depression and isolation caused by screens" among their students prompted them to learn about other educational models, models that aren’t screen-intensive.”

Please write a list of simple suggestions of how an individual, parent, educator, practitioner could make changes to turn the trends you are talking about.

Epilogue: The Vast, Empty, Sky-Like Nature of Our Mind

If the example which our behavior exhibits today was the template that would imprint how the next generation, and therefore the future of humanity, will behave, what would you do differently? What will make us change and what kind of change will actually make the difference we urgently need? Just today, on November 26, 2019, another extinction report filled the headlines:

Putting It All Together

There is the surface challenge du jure, of the moment, and the deeper challenge that created that challenge. We are exploring the root source of our chronic personal, social and ecological dis-ease, that has now turned into crisis. Why humanity has created the mess we find ourselves in, and have been in for thousands of years. As we began; the source of problem is not out there, in society, in our relationships, in the environment. The crisis is in each of us, how we perceive, think, feel, how we treat each other and the world. The deeper challenge is inner, a particular misuse of memory, and therefore structure of thought and our identification with this misuse.
