Me, Me, Me

The Neurotic Satisfactions of the Selfie Generation,


We humans are rather curious creatures, I’ll admit. So many sides to our nature, so many colours to our emotions, so many journeys of our imaginations. But the question must arise, do we learn any more about these traits by making ourselves the perpetual object of our own fascination?

One would certainly assume so based upon the cult of the ‘selfie’ which rages around the world at this particular juncture of human evolution. I am tempted to say ‘devolution’, but going backwards would at least stand the chance of putting us in touch with something tangible, earthy even – whereas to live life as a virtual reality experience with one’s own photographic image as the central point of attraction – fails to provoke my sense of admiration for the human race.

The cult of the selfie has gone so far that reports are now emerging that addicts often put themselves in positions of real danger in order to get the perfect shot. A number have already died as a result of the dare-devil approach to getting the perfect selfie.

If I was to take a relaxed and laid-back view of all this, I might say “OK, sure, we all need to get our kicks in some form or other, just let it be – let people have fun with their cameras on poles; apart from the excesses we hear about it’s pretty harmless fun isn’t it?”

It would be simple enough to go along with such a prognosis were it not for the fact that the whole thing is surely telling us something more than just what the crazy craze of the moment is. It is telling us something quite profound about an advanced preoccupation with superficiality per se.
A kind of ego flattering sport whose popularity has presently reached the point of pandemic.

Is this just a kick-back against a sense of loneliness and sense of insignificance in a world that appears indifferent to the fate of the individual? Is it a wish to be noticed in an age of hyper inflated promotion of the engineered stars of stage, screen, video, social media et al? A range of elevated self importance that runs from TV chef to porn star to political poser?

Whatever the cause, its ubiquitous nature is undeniable and has added yet more techno baggage to the 21st century tourist’s arsenal of seemingly indispensable smart gismos. If one isn’t squinting into the illuminated screen of a smart phone while walking through a beautiful landscape, one is posing against the same background smiling cheesily for a selfie. While a discourse with nature herself, the source of all our deepest and most practical needs, is shunned. Left out of the picture, except to the extent that she forms the backdrop to the vanity inflated self.

Here lies a clue to this infliction. Modern day living has contrived to be a virtual reality form of existence, one which has alienated human beings from their roots. The ability to find a deep appreciation for beauty, quiet and the actual power of landscape has been smothered by an electro-smog of self satisfying surface pursuits; the sum total of which have formed a veritable barrier against true instincts, perceptions and genuinely life satisfying experiences.

This is a dangerous state of affairs, because we need these qualities to be at the forefront of our daily lives in order to gain/regain a true sense of equilibrium and balance. To find in ourselves that which gives us the courage and vision we need to negotiate and ultimately to vanquish the miasma of deceptions, twisted truths and outright lies legion at this time.

Those who feel the necessity to surround themselves with stimulants for the nourishment of their superficial selves cannot resist slavery to the controlling powers that be. Cannot resist becoming pawns to the carefully planned sales promotions that make such people feel they ‘must have’ the latest, most advance, most essential addition to the range. It is an addiction which includes uncritical acceptance of the disinformation that forms the great majority of what appears on mainstream television, newspapers, glossy journals and all channels of communication that maintain a wall of conscious-blocking visual and printed fake news and views 24/7.

It’s only a small step from here to open armed acceptance of life in a ‘Smart City’. A life where electromagnetic microwaves come with the very air you breathe. No choice. A place where ‘being monitored’ and ‘monitoring’ form a framework around the chief activities of the day – and no doubt night. A place designed and built for technology addicts, one might surmise. But actually a sinister prison camp for the imposition of a cyborgian programme of control.

It’s a place where no trees will be present because they interrupt the 5G signals which are the controlling motor of everything that happens in this arid world of concrete, glass and microwave radiation. Woe betide you if you should lose your personal chip which gives access to everything you need including your own self autonomous self driving car and the ability to unlock the front door of your home. In a smart city, should you lose or destroy your chip, permission will have to be sought from Big Brother to get back into your house, turn on the lights and open the refrigerator.

The ‘internet of everything’ which is to be the techno-hub of the 5G Smart City, ensures citizens cannot act outside the authority of the centralised computer master control.

Orwellian fantasy? No, already existing reality in its first stages.

But all this will, I presume be a source of frisson to those who willingly accept a fate controlled by anyone other than themselves. Who find such a techno-psychotic existence a direct extension of their fascination with all that comes under the word ‘superficial’. And that brings us full circle back to the exponents of narcissistic selfies, who roam the world with with camera triggered extension pods so as to photograph themselves against exotic backgrounds and famous works of architecture as though they were just empty cut-outs for a theatre set. After all, for selfie exponents, the only thing of real importance is themselves.

It is a remarkable seductive trait that leads to the entrapment of the spirit and soul of man. The master stroke in all this is that it all appears to be oh so normal – and those who do not conform are regarded with incredulity and relegated to the old pastures rare breeds museum for special research into their strange individualistic traits.

The rare breeds, however, turn out to have strong genes and resistant immune systems. They never abandoned nature in favour of the arid virtual 5G powered smartscape. Instead they organised resistance and were supported by energies that were not recognised or understood by adherents of the smartscape.

They kept alive the torch of justice and truth and they grew in number in spite of the dystopian landscape around them. They retained the collective name ‘humanity’ and the warm feelings that underpin that name – the state we call ‘human’. And in the course of time, they came to nurture back to health the planet that nourished them and to rescue those drowning in the narcissistic electro- magnetic soup of their naive choosing. They heeded the cries of desperation of these prisoners – to find a way back out of their oh so ordinary self imposed toxic prison. It was only the irredeemable selfie who never made it back to real life. The rest experienced the flowering of a self they never knew existed. An unselfish self.

How successfully this unselfish self had been kept at bay by the distractions and fakery of the now defunct soulless smartscapes of yesteryear. As has been noted many times over the millennia, the only real learning is learning by experience.

Trained to Lie

The Making of the Modern Politician

It would appear these days, that unless one can show that one is important or an expert in some way or other, one will not be taken seriously by those who only see life as a social climbing highway called ‘career making’.

Gone, as important values for society, is respect for simple common sense, the quiet search for deeper knowledge and the expression of native indigenous wisdom. Unless one is on the road to ‘making it’ or has already ‘made it’ on the terms of reference of the current status quo, one is treated as a kind of social misfit.

Accordingly, aspirants of fame and fortune struggle to attain positions in society which enable them to make an impression by pronouncing authoritatively on various issues of the day. Most people seeking to acquire this authoritative aura go out of their way to ensure they look the part, choosing their attire with great care and no doubt spending much time in front of the mirror before anchoring themselves to their chosen pedestal and awaiting the applause of the public arena.

Is the UK Being Hard Wired to the Fourth Reich?

Are We Witnessing the End of the United Kingdom as an Independent Nation State?
Ever since ‘the wrong result’ occurred at the referendum launched by then Prime Minister David Cameron, a fiasco of unprecedented proportions has been taking place in British politics. It is a depressing and, owing to the pathos, a tragi-comical spectacle.

However, there is nothing comical about the direction things are moving in, but there is something tragic. The UK is being hijacked from within and without, simultaneously. The pretext for this dissolution of everything that holds the country together as an Independent Nation State is the collusion between leading figures in the British Civil Service and leading figures in the European Commission. That collusion is symptomatic of the technocratic march towards an ever more centralised European Super State.

Because of the complexity of the surface Brexit story, which plays-out it’s contortions on the front pages of UK press day after day, I’m going to concentrate only on the key issues that remain largely hidden due to this orchestrated media smoke screen.

Britain’s civil service once held the reputation of being largely true to its traditional role of transcribing into law the decrees of State. British Civil Servants acted out of a long established tradition to make their priority ‘the representation of the people’. The institution, which essentially acts as the first call in public administration, is historically structured to be independent of government. (more…)

A Pagan Easter


I live and work for 8 months out of the year in Poland. To be more precise, in a small cottage in a village situated on the edge of the Beskidi mountain range in the Province of Malopolska, about 40 kilometres South West of Krakow.

We, Jadwiga and I, cultivate about 1.5 ha of land composed of around 7 fields, each in a separate location., but all within walking distance. Most is for vegetables, grazing and hay.

In our garden is an orchard comprising apple, cherry and plumb trees, a herb growing plot and 3 green houses. There is also a barn made from clay and straw, which we converted into an educational centre some 20 years ago. (more…)

Can Chickens Swim?

“To get from the passenger seat to the driving seat is a momentous act”

Need I say it, extraordinary things are going on all over this World, and it turns out that having to resort to a survival formula in order to cope with them, is not necessarily the best way forward. In fact, the impending sense of chaos is having the unlikely effect of making people who usually ignore whatever is going on around them – sit-up and start asking a few questions.

A few years ago, my neighbour, faced by a third consecutive year of floods encroaching on her kitchen garden, was mostly concerned whether her hens would escape unharmed; but now she is asking why it is that the floods keep happening. That is a big change. A change from worrying whether her chickens can swim, to questioning why it is that her chickens should ever be forced to face such a predicament in the first place.

So, it appears to be the case that the rising tide of cataclysmic events manifesting on our planet, from environmental degradation and human health crisis, to absolute political corruption and ineptitude; to unparalleled manifestations of corporate greed – are collectively having the effect of stirring sleeping human beings into the realisation that things have gone maybe more than a little off-course. That maybe something bigger and not well understood is behind this unprecedented sense of upheaval. (more…)

Synthetic Electric Shock

From Electrification to 5G WiFi

We are by nature electric; but the man-made ‘synthetic’ variety, that apes nature’s version, is not helping us to live a full and healthy life, but is rather stultifying that condition. In fact Edison, Tesla et al. were not really doing the world a favour when they invented and put to use ‘synthetic electricity’ on this planet.

It is not that they didn’t mean well, no doubt they did, but the revolution that electric light first brought about, also took man a further step away from his origins as ‘a being of nature’.

In a medical hypothesis by Samuel Milham of Washington State Department of Health (2009) entitled “Historical evidence that electrification caused the 20th century epidemic of diseases of civilisation” Milham reveals that once Thomas Edison began electrifying New York City in 1880, the onward march of electrification correlated with sharp rises in cardiovascular disease, diabetes, suicide and cancer.

Whereas on farms and countryside areas which lagged a long way behind urban areas in acquiring electrification, incidences of such disease were barely ever seen. It was not until the 1950’s that the majority of US farms got hooked-up onto electrical power.

Somehow this information which has been known about for decades, never got into the public domain. Milham states “It seems unbelievable that mortality differences of this magnitude could go unexplained for over 70 years after they were first reported – and 40 years after they were first noticed.”

So, long before WiFi, cell phones, Dect’s and tablets hit the scene, thousands were already dying from sicknesses brought-on by living tight-up against electromagnetic currents. To be more precise, power frequency magnetic fields typically of 60 Hz output. Later on, the introduction of fluorescent light bulbs, halogen lamps, wireless routers and dimmer switches added significantly to the ‘dirty electricity’ already prevalent. (more…)

‘The Fusion Doctrine’ A Totalitarian Take Over and State Privatization Programme

It has become increasingly apparent throughout the past decade that the nation state, and the traditional notion that it represents a culturally cohesive citizen’s platform, is no longer a valid supposition.

In Europe, countries have been stripped of their status as individual nations overseen by elected governments. They have been turned into corporatist fiefdoms having their own agendas and their own means of achieving them. The chief amongst these agendas is the domination of all spheres of the market place via the overt influence of government. And the method of achieving this end is extortion – buying one’s way into positions of leverage.

This would not be possible, of course, if parliamentarians refused to bend to the temptation of corruption. But as we now see on a virtually daily basis, the great majority of these ‘representatives of the people’ are themselves severely lacking in moral fiber and only too ready to do what is asked of them, in order to remain in power.

But the problem goes deeper. Other institutions with a remit to inform and educate, such as the media, leaders of national education programmes and the church also appear incapable of realizing a vision of any depth or purpose – equally allowing themselves to be led by the corporatist agenda.

An increasingly significant number of citizens now feel that there is no trust-worthy party to turn to at election time; whereas those who continue to place their faith in one or other party, allow themselves to be swayed by the ubiquitous nature of state propaganda – and not by their better instincts. This propaganda is corporation infused and is tied-into the deliberate promotion of an increasingly “me, me” agenda. Materialistically inclined consumers and many of those reacting to the dog eat dog political agenda of the day, appear to believe that any sort of resistance to the dominant trend is pointless, preferring to think only about their own needs and wishes and how to get the best out of a bad situation.

Freeing Ourselves from Religious Dogma

One must go back further than religion. That is the starting point of the great reassessment we undertake in freeing ourselves from the burden of false knowledge. Freeing ourselves from unquestioned assumptions of truth. We need to get back to the roots of mankind, and in so doing, re-establish a direct and reciprocal relationship with nature and the universe, of which we are a part.

Religion is a man-made and once removed interpretation of the life force – and a false one at that. Whereas the life force (nature and the universe) works directly through man. There is no place for a ‘middle man’ to censor our experiences.

Religion placed an invisible wall between man and nature and between man and God, setting conditions for ‘orderly behaviour’ according to a doctrine of obedience. So now, as these walls crumble, we should stand proud in saying “Nature not religion.” “Truth not dogma”.

But that is merely the first step in our journey of a thousand miles. As the scales fall from our eyes we do not only recognise the truth ‘nature not religion’, we also recognise God to have given birth to nature. We recognise nature as an expression of the Creator. So with nature as our base, our next step up is to strive to come ever closer to our Creator. To realise the God within us. These are the stepping stones of our emancipation as human beings. (more…)

STOP 5G WIFI KILLER – NOW!

This Is a Planetary Emergency

A highly dangerous addition to the Electro Magnetic Frequencies that emanate from mobile phone masts, WiFi, Smart Phone, I Pod and all similar electro magnetic technologies, is to be introduced across the world starting at the end of this year (2018) unless we come forward to stop it!

180 scientists and doctors from 35 countries are demanding that the European Commission withhold permission for 5G WiFi until fully independent research is carried out into its safety. However the Commission, under the influence of a powerful consortium of 5G promoters has failed to act on the scientists and doctors advice.

What is 5G and how will it work?

5G is an extension of 2,3 and 4G existing radio frequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) already proved to be harmful to humans and the environment. The difference is that 5G uses high frequency extra short ‘millimetre wave’ signals between towers and receiving equipment (cell phones etc.) that will mean millions of new transmitter towers will have to be erected at distances of no more than 10 to 12 houses apart in urban areas. An almost unimaginable increase – which will subject citizens to an unavoidable barrage of electromagnetic pollution every time they walk on the streets.

The pulses given-off operate at a wavelength almost identical to that of the human brain, which allows subliminal messages to be encoded into the transmissions. They will also be at levels of intensity that greatly exceed existing pulses.

In order to maximise the effectiveness and coverage of these signals, a consortium of global corporations operating under the title ‘Space X’, plan to launch 4,425 satellites into low orbit around the Earth as early as 2019. This to be followed soon after by a further 12,000 satellites, in order to provide 360 degree ‘lag-free’ internet to every square inch of Earth. With a further consortium bidding for 4,000 satellites to be also put into orbit – the total comes to just under 20,000.

Space X consortium, led by Elon Musk, plans the first launches to begin at the end of 2018 and continue throughout 2019 and 2020. On March 29th 2018, The US Federal Communications Commission already gave its approval to the first phase of launches, in spite of the fact that it has no mandate to protect public health.

Author and microwave researcher Arthur Firstenberg warns of unprecedented dangers associated with this activity, such as ozone loss; destruction of the Van Allen Belts; global weather disruption; groundwater pollution; space junk; microwave radiation and vandalism of the night sky – all resulting from the vast number of satellites that will encircle the Earth. Kerosene pollution resulting from the hundreds of rocket launches needed to deploy the satellites, will provide another source of toxic pollution.

At present, just 66 satellites provide the signals that supply the global network. The proposed increase is of a completely unprecedented magnitude.

How are people affected by exposure to 5G?

More than 230 scientists and doctors from 41 countries have expressed their “serious concerns” regarding steadily expanding exposure to EMF generated by the electric and wireless devices already in existence – before any additional 5G roll-out. They report that “Numerous recent scientific publications have shown that EMF affects living organisms at levels well below most national and international guidelines.

These affects include cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages,

structural and functional changes to the human reproductive system, learning and memory defects, neurological disorders and negative impacts on general well-being in humans. Damage goes well beyond humans, as there is mounting evidence of deleterious affects to both plants and animals.

The World’s largest study ‘National Toxicology Program’ (NTP) revealed statistically significant increases in the incidence of heart and brain cancer in animals exposed to EMF below the ICNIRP

(International Commission on Non Ironising Radiation Protection) guidelines that are followed by most countries. New studies, and several epidemiological investigations – including the latest on mobile phone use and brain cancer risk – confirm that RF-EMF radiation is definitely harmful to humans.

The Europe EM-EMF Guidelines 2016, states “There is strong evidence that long term exposure to certain EMF’s is a risk factor for diseases such as cancers, Alzheimer’s disease and male infertility ..

common electromagnetic hypersensitivity symptoms include headaches, sleep problems, concentration difficulties, depression, lack of energy, fatigue and flu like symptoms.”

The International Scientific Declaration on EHS and multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) Brussels 2015, states “EHS and MCS are sentinel diseases that may create a major public health concern in years to come worldwide – i.e. in all countries operating an unrestricted use of electromagnetic based wireless technologies.” It adds “Inaction is a cost to society and is not an option any more. Primary prevention measures must be adopted and prioritised to directly face and take action to prevent a worldwide epidemic.”

Are any official bodies involved in preventing an unsolicited 5G roll-out?

Under resolution 1815 (Council of Europe, 2011) the Nuremberg Code (1949) and the EU Precautionary Principle , can be found clauses that call for the prohibition of any actions/experiments in the public domain that have not undergone previous controlled trials and/or that represent a potential threat to the health and welfare of the planet and its peoples. However National Governments each set different ‘safety levels’ for 2,3 and 4G emissions, almost all of which have been proved too high to prevent health consequences, including those already mentioned.

It has been observed, correctly, that ‘Safety Guidelines’ protect industry and not health’ – and that current guidelines are obsolete. New independently assessed guidelines/rules are urgently needed, but the telecommunications industry and the corporate bodies that plan the 5G roll-out, are using intense lobbying backed by large financial incentives to try and ensure that they are not blocked from carrying through their plans.

OUR TASK:

As with attempts to introduce life mutating gene modification laboratory technologies (GMO) into the farmlands and foods of the world, so the 5G formula threatens to do the same from the sky. The formula is essentially the same: a war against nature, man and our shared universal spirit of existence.

Every single one of us is in the firing line, and it is only by coming together in a united effort to reverse the process of destruction that we can regain control over our destinies and save our species from extinction. Already vital oxygenating trees are being cut down in cities to remove any possible obstruction to street level 5G signals.

This is a Planetary Emergency. We have less than a year to turn things around. Every voice counts in getting 5G stopped before it starts. Make your voice heard right now!

Save Us From Freedom!

-People want to create robots so they can be led by them-

Freedom once meant something significant for mankind. It meant ceasing to be suppressed and imprisoned by forces that endeavour to control one. The word ‘freedom’ conjured a sense of what it means, at least to some degree, to be master of one’s destiny.

No longer, For many, the new freedom has almost exactly the opposite meaning. Now freedom seems to be associated with having someone or something doing one’s thinking for one; making decisions that one ‘can’t be bothered ‘or doesn’t want to make – and ultimately completely relieving one from responsibility for taking any form of action other than that which enriches one’s pocket and/or one’s narcissist fantasies.
