A year and a day later…

July 4, 2011

Greetings,

From a year a a day ago…. the echo is intense and well worth paying attention to:

New-Clear Meme

JULY 3, 2010

Greetings,

So much to write about, my little note-pad of possible post-headers is full.

But I keep getting called to remind people about the nuclear anniversary coming upon us, soon.

In recent history (say the last 300-400 years), that date, July 16th 1945 marked a real turning point in our relationship with technology.

Everything started to speed up, all around us. Like all things that grow to a massive size, the initial growth is almost imperceptible.

But pay attention long enough and you start to see a temporal connect. For example, the invention of the printing press and the rise of books/literacy is an easy one.

The invention of the cotton gin and the rise of the industrial revolution is slightly harder.

We live after all in a continuously diminishing echo of the past. Like a stone thrown in a pond, the ripples continue long past the point of impact.

It is the same with events. They are temporal markers and if seminal enough, their ripples continue to impact generations to come.

World War I had been ended with bold cries of “Never Again” and various other such platitudes that are constantly given out to bewildered people at the climax of things such as world devastating wars. And people swallow it and forget it by the time NEVER AGAIN is repeated, a scant 21 years later.

And the nuclear bombs, which supposedly sealed WWII with an exhibition of force heretofore unseen in history, were birthed on 16th July 1945, in New Mexico.

New Mexico, Gulf Of Mexico. Interesting eh?

And if anyone reading this thought I was being a tad over the top with the Nuclear Terror issue, I suggest you look at the role of the Nuke as the cattle-prod of the west, keeping the rest of the world in line.

In a large herd of cattle, only the one’s in the front-line feel the prod. But their panic and pain ripples through the entire herd.

It is the same with war and especially nuclear war. While we (most of us) did not live directly in it’s shadow or fear (actually many generations of Americans and Russians did), it’s energy impacted us all. Oftentimes in the background, but always there.

Meanwhile, our lives sped up and we were pushed into smaller and smaller boxes, literally, figuratively….. space-wise, time-wise, community wise.

In a fractal world, that made perfect sense. If we, as a species, figure we’ve got nuclear power tamed, we should be comfortable with it’s parameters, yes? Or no? Really, ask yourself that question.

Hyperfast time, hypersmall space, fractal folding, extreme compression, mind-bending adhesion.

Now we get to live it out in the open again. Too long, nukes have laboured in the shadows.

They returns as friends. Nukes will save us. Blow in the hole!

I have my doubts and , in my estimation, we are staring our Atlantean moment in it’s face.

What did you feel when you saw the black and white ball of fire?

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

So, I’d felt this really strongly last year. That we are staring our own atlantean moment in the face.

The relentless acceleration of technology and the hide-bound structures of science assured our nuclear dystopia. There was only one direction possible.

Citius, Altius, Fortius….

Faster, Higher, Stronger.

Is it not strange that the Olympic movement, with this motto being brushed off after centuries of neglect, bookmarks one end (1896 I think it was) of our death-grip-love-affair with oil and the super accelerated version of the industrial revolution.

If there was one thing Al Gore’s relentless chartology of global warming fraud science showed without a doubt, all of our natural systems and thus, axiomatically all of our systems always exit in a blaze of parabolic-ally ascending glory. I’d rather be ashes than dust seems a universal desire, supposedly expressed by Jack London, now relegated to urban legend.

So, Faster, Higher, Stronger bookmarks an age where Otto Diesel’s invention started a revolution, literal and figurative, that brought us here.

Once Tesla had cracked the electric code, the nucleus was the last barrier, or so we thought. As I said earlier, sub-nuclear strong forces have no graceful expression in our 4 dimension world. Foldspace is not some sci-fi fiction fantasy.

Have you ever peeled apart a rose-bud? Try it, you will see fold-space in action. Organic fold-space, the tightly wound fractal has a different point of origin than our limited understanding of biological processes allows us to imagine.

Thus, you can take that bud apart and marvel at fold-space, but you can put put it back together again. It’s humpty-rose-bud.

Our faustian bargain with the atom is similar. We rammed our way into a tightness we had no way of replicating. So we are stuck with it’s continuous outpouring. Putting aside any notion of scientific purity and provability through the rigors of hypothesis testing, look at the half lives of the by-products of a nuclear explosion.

Some of them run into millions of years and some disappear in hours/days/weeks. None of what emerges is “good” for us in any way shape or form. That tells me it is a place we had to visit not in Newtonian battering ram fashion but by induction.

Regardless, here we are.

16th July 2011 is the 66th anniversary of the trinity test at White Sands Desert New Mexico near a town called Truth And Consequences.

Right on the 33rd Parallel.

While pondering this, remember that the most famous recorded words int eh immediate aftermath of the successful test, are those of Robert Oppenheimer, the “Father” of the atomic bomb program, quoting from the Bhagwat Gita, Lord Krishna “I am become Death, the Destroyer of worlds”, and words to the effect of the power of a million suns.

The fire of creation as we know it has been un-leashed. And it came with a bang, not un-announced. But we did not pay attention. I’m sure Robert O knew exactly what he was talking about.

So, here we are, staring at our nuclear winter of discontent.

Platitudes and gesture aside, what do you think we can do, as a species to turn this tide, so to speak?

Anything? Should we even try? Look, even as we speak, the Sun, that 4-40 billion year old “steady state” definer of our existence, is suddenly all awry. If you cannot count on the sun rising as it should…. ponder the consequences of that.

And if your own research shows, as mine does it is true, the Sun itself is changing… think of how special a time this is. Special as in full of potential for change.

The bedrock of our existence, our circadian rhythm, Sol Invectus, is transforming. Anomalies abound, with respect to Coronal Mass Ejections and Sun Spots. The timing is all off.

Feels like that here too eh?

So the Sun, a mute muse for the in-bred madness of the scientific method, gave birth to a million suns here on earth. And we thought we could get away without getting burned?

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmnnnnnnnnnnmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!

Getting to our nucleus….now that is fold-space you can wiggle into.

:-0

    Nothing to add really … but fancy you knowing the history of cotton!

    How many others know that the British Raj, the cotton gin, and the “dark satanic mills” in Lancashire spelled the end of two millenia of sustainable Indian civilization. How many others connect the dots with cotton slavery in the emerging USA?

    I will leave it at that.

      Gerry, thanks for your earlier comment and this too. Appreciate the dreams you shared. So, we do live on a toroidal plasma donut. I’m of not being facetious in the least.
      More on that post later.

      And yes, the cotton gin. I think it ranks right up there with Child labour and Opium as important legs of the raj.

      Such a sham, our history, hmmm?

      Thanks for sharing.

    You’ve been more often wrong than right. Don’t let it worry you – even a broken clock is right twice a day.

    • July 5, 2011 3:46 am

      Well enicar, since your abusive rant a week or two ago, you really have no place on this board. This stupid little dig only affirms that position.
      None. You can take yourself off or I’ll block you.
      Thanks for coming by and watch the virtual door behind you.

        So .. . was the RANT wrong- or just offended your “sensebilities”? What you label as a rant – might be closer to the TRUTH. I listen – hear – and judge. As much as I agree with you – I disagree. Was my rant “stupid” or beyond your comprehension? I always change my opinion – based on new knowledge – it leads to growth. Try it sometime.

        When you feel threatened – for no good reason – it can either open your mind or close it. Growth is at hand. Choose wisely – my friend.

        • July 5, 2011 11:23 am

          Go away enicar.

          Yes your rant was stupid … but not beyond the comprehension of anyone anyone knowing more than you do.

          You are what is commonly known as a “shill” who infests blogs with nothing constructive, nor meaningful to say.

          Go some place else where, whatever you believe in (if anything) agrees with you.

          What do you believe/think/whatever? Please make an actual statement, or detailed critque of what you voluntarily find here.

          You choose to come here and try to destroy whatever it is most of us like.

          Makes you an “internet terrorist” OK.

          I support blocking you.

          You are the equivalent of an atheist busting into a church and pouring scorn on everything … you would be evicted and rightly so.

          BTW I am a sorta atheist, which is why I picked on such an example of why “free speech” has its limits.

        • July 5, 2011 8:15 pm

          Enicar, you are showing signs of being unstable. I said politely, your brand of ad hominem attack is not welcome here.

          This from the last comment that I trashed, by you:

          ” At my favourite liquor store in Sturtevant Wisconsin – now there is a “dothead” Indian, and his family, emplaced. Red dot on forehead – Krishna depicted as his god at the Shrine – in the liquor store. I REJECT the 3 great tragedies of the World (Judiasm, Christianity, Muslim) – yet I must suffer this man. YOU SUPPORT PUBLIC WORKERS – THE TAX ENSLAVING CLASS OF ALL – Go fuck yourself –

          ANYONE – who receives a government paycheck -or is a benificiary of property/income or any other tax – is a SLAVER and POS worthy of…. death. F.U.”
          >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

          Read that? Abuse, racist rubbish….just meaningless drivel.

          I’ll block you next time you raise a peep here. you’ve made yourself unwelcome. Understood, dimwit?

    Your insights are quite fascinating and the reference to the ripples in time and the echos of history are right on….Things appear bleak for all our relations…how do we deal with the atomic genie?….we cannot put him back in the lamp….major transition time! Thank you for your body of work. The five finger hand meditation is wonderful.

    • July 5, 2011 8:11 pm

      :-) Glad you found something here to reflect on Terrance. If the 5 finger exercise is something that keeps you practicing, please share any in-sights.

      And transition indeed. This is the eye of the needle time. All we can be to get through is a thread! No attachments, no protrusions, no unseemly “things” hanging on.
      Pure…. Oh, definitely no knots!

  4. July 5, 2011 5:26 am

    Vivek,

    There are those who hanged on [too] tight with their conditioning that they’d not see the ‘door’ in front or behind. Sad, really. But then we have had those we care / care not who ‘shied’ [i would settle in with this verb instead] from the ‘hummmmmmming’.

    Now more than ever, as one year ago.

    Thanks for sharing.

      Indeed Vee. Seems like a real echo moment to me, generally. A loud echo!
      Bated breath and all! :-)

      Thanks for sharing.

    I have noticed over the past several years that something momentous happens during the third week of July, starting with the July 17 1996 explosion of Flight 800 over Long Island Sound. The nuclear test takes that pattern back as far as 1945. I have been wondering what might happen this year, and why. Another false flag, perhaps, to justify the removal of the US debt ceiling?

    • July 6, 2011 3:26 pm

      Cartonero, thanks for that, be good to see the pattern. Patterns tell the story.

      Thanks for sharing.

    Yes my friend, such a simple practice, touching five finger pads lightly together…..tames the mind quite nicely…..thank you again!

    You know what I find funny about the Cold War, as someone born in South Africa in 1983 (i.e. out of the looming shadow of the cold war) countries like Russia and America were so afraid of being nuked, and yet, how many nukes did they explode ON THEIR OWN TERRITORIES? And on the Earth in general?

    I view each atomic explosion that took place as a small portal to Hell opening up.

    • July 8, 2011 6:12 pm

      “I view each atomic explosion that took place as a small portal to Hell opening up.”
      Indeed LDK. if not hell, then a place we have no business being anyways, which may as well be hell, eh?
      Thanks for sharing.

    LDK – Good points .It is clear we don’t fully appreciate the damage that has been done and simply has not played out yet . There is no doubt in my mind FUKU is not even close to being under control or over with even though PRAVDA insist’s all is well . I am certain it is just the beginning of a horrific epic event about to unfold and be realized in non mitigatable fashion for all to see and feel . The physics will not lie , but we know men surely will.

    I am glad you dropped the Bhagwat Gita, Lord Krishna “I am become Death, the Destroyer of worlds” quote. Oppenheimer’s face when he gives that quote on the interview says it all.

    I have long believed that the only reason nuclear power has been allowed in civilized countries is because of the horror that nuclear bombs unleash makes the sustainable reaction less terrible. What I cannot understand is when we have alternatives such as Thorium that can do what Uranium or Plutonium does with far less waste. In my research it seems that money and plutonium used to make the weapons were the main reasons why Thorium was never used after the early 70’s.

    • July 8, 2011 6:11 pm

      Interesting Shenbitt. Thanks for sharing.

      My personal opinion is that regardless of what fuel of reactor type etc., Nuclear energy was not ours to play with.

    hi ori…found you over at zero hedge awhile back. always enjoy your perspective. waking as many people as i can, but what a sleepy bunch! god bless’em. p.

    • July 8, 2011 7:22 pm

      Indeed patrick, bless us all! We are going to need blessings and helping hands and hearts and calm minds.
      Thanks for sharing. Appreciation appreciated!
