So You Think We Are The Most Advanced Civilisation To Ever Inhabit This Planet? Think Again!

There are many inexplicable structures scattered to the far flung reaches of this planet. No matter the continent or the country, each has its own inexplicable megalithic sites and mystifying edifices.
Some of these are well known whereas others are hidden away, covered in dense undergrowth or placed in remote locations, still awaiting discovery.
Archaeologists and historians have investigated many of the more renowned sites and have provided the public with their conclusions. These conclusions are generally accepted as fact, even though the majority are based upon nothing more than supposition and assumption.
Whether the deductions are regarding age and origin, or construction methods, they are usually formulated from ideas and hypothesis. There are very few historical records, and even fewer known facts regarding these amazing structures.
A prime example of this lack of true knowledge is the Great Pyramid of Giza. This is one of the best known ancient structures in the world. It is listed as one of the seven wonders of the world. Yet very few real facts are known about this mysterious building.
Although nothing more than assumption, based upon speculative archaeological dating methods, it is generally accepted by historians and Egyptologists that the great pyramid was constructed between 4,500 and 5,000 years ago, by the Egyptians, as a tomb for the forth dynasty Egyptian Pharaoh Khufu, also known as Cheops. It was supposedly built over a twenty year period, culminating in 2,560BC. Everything that is claimed by Egyptologists regarding this pyramid is based upon nothing more than a single mark found in an interior chamber naming a work gang (or so it is proposed). Hardly concrete evidence!
Although the actual construction process is completely unknown many theories have been proposed about how the huge megalithic blocks used in its construction were moved and positioned. Although intriguing, the method of construction is, and will most probably remain, a complete mystery.
If as claimed however, the Great Pyramid was constructed in just 20 years, then its builders were nothing short of phenomenal!
There are estimated to be 2,300,000 blocks used in the construction, each weighing anywhere between 2.5 and 80 tons. To complete the construction in just 20 years, each block would have to be quarried, cut, transported and put into place every 4.6 minutes, 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year, for twenty years.
Furthermore, the above timescale completely ignores the thousands of highly polished, precisely cut casing stones. Stones that were so precisely carved that they fitted together with a tolerance of just 1/50th of an inch – a feat that could only be accomplished today with modern machining methods.
If one further considers that much of the stone used in the construction was quarried in Aswan, almost 500 miles away, and had to be transported across gruelling landscape and the river Nile to its destination, one soon realises how ludicrous this “built in 20 years” assertion is.
One has to ponder that if a “fact” as basic as the logistics required for its construction could be so woefully ridiculous, then one has to question every other assertion made about this enigmatic masterpiece.
What has been discovered about its construction however, will probably astonish many.
Firstly the Great Pyramid of Giza has not four, but eight sides! Each of its four faces is split perfectly into two concave halves, and the only time this is visible to the naked eye is for a few minutes at sunrise and sunset on the spring and autumn equinoxes, when a shadow is cast by the sun highlighting its concavity.
This fact was only discovered quite by accident in 1940, when a British Air Force pilot, P. Groves, was flying over the pyramid. He happened to notice the concavity and captured it in the photograph shown below.

However, as fascinating as this is, it is nothing compared to other amazing facts discovered within this intriguing construction. Discoveries that most archaeologists and Egyptologists would dismiss as chance or coincidence, and banish from their thoughts, as to acknowledge them would necessitate abandoning their current beliefs and reassessing their whole ethos.

Before we explore further the astounding discoveries unearthed regarding this remarkable construction itself, let us ponder some incredible artefacts found within the pyramid.

During excavations thousands upon thousands of bowls, dishes and other stoneware were discovered, approximately 40,000 in total. That in itself is not particularly newsworthy. However, when one takes a closer look at some of these finds, one has to ask just how they were created by a relatively primitive people, with extremely primitive tools.

One example is sitting in a museum in Cairo. Hewn from a solid lump of granite with such precision its creation cannot be replicated today, even with our modern machining methods. This particular bowl is completely circular with no flat base upon which to sit. It is so flawlessly created that the entire bowl balances perfectly on a round tipped bottom no bigger than the tip of a hen’s egg. This requires that the entire bowl have a symmetrical wall thickness without any substantial error.

The skill required to produce such an extraordinary piece would raise the eyebrows of any modern day machinist. To produce such a piece in clay would be very impressive. To do so in granite, one of the hardest substances known to man, is inconceivable.

Yet once again we are expected to believe that this remarkable creation was sculptured with nothing more sophisticated that a copper chisel and stone mallet!

However, this amazing precision was not just limited to stoneware, but was also prevalent in the construction of the pyramid itself.egyptian-granite-bowl-475x1024

A perfectly sculptured granite bowl supposedly crafted with just primitive tools
– yeah right

The upper chamber within the Great Pyramid has walls that are perfectly vertical, and a floor and ceiling that are perfectly horizontal, to within one fiftieth of an inch! Considering that this chamber is constructed from huge granite blocks, weighing up to 80 tons each, along with the fact that the Egyptians did not possess tools capable of measuring with such precision, one has to ask how they managed to achieve such remarkable accuracy.

Additionally, the Giza pyramid is aligned to true north so precisely, it can be measured to within one five hundredth of a degree. A feat we have only managed to get remotely close to fairly recently

And they did all of this with nothing more than stone mallets, copper chisels, and hemp ropes?

Can we be absolutely certain that the Great Pyramid of Giza was really built by the Egyptians? Or is it more feasible that an older more advanced civilisation were the true builders?

One only needs to investigate the complicated mathematics and geometry encoded into the construction of the Great Pyramid, to realise that something is very very wrong with the orthodox explanations. Mathematical knowledge that, according to conventional understanding of the Egyptian civilisation, they did not possess.

In 1859 an Englishman by the name of John Taylor made an astounding discovery. Whilst working on the dimensions of the pyramid he carried out some basic mathematical sums. He divided the measurement of half the perimeter by the height of the pyramid (measured in cubits). This gave the number 3.1415. This might seem insignificant until one realises that this is the number of Pi , a formula that is not recorded anywhere in ancient Egyptian writings or texts, and is believed to have been completely unknown to them.

A coincidence one might suppose.

But the coincidences don’t end there. If one takes the surface area of the four sides and divides that by the surface area of the base. The result is 1.6180339887, otherwise known as the Golden Ratio (golden number) or Phi, another unique number not known to have been discovered at the [supposed] time of the pyramids construction. The Golden Ratio is believed to be a constant in the universe, and is found in many geometric forms in nature.

Another coincidence? If so prepare to be astonished because these remarkable coincidences don’t end there!

By dividing the distance of the half perimeter by the total height (measured in metres) the result is the Golden Number (Phi) squared.

If one were to draw a square the same size as the base of the pyramid, then draw a circle with the same circumference as the square. The radius of this circle would equal the height of the pyramid.

By taking the length of the pyramid and subtracting the height. The number left is 314.16 or 100 times Pi.

Adding together the surface area of two sides of the pyramid equals 100 times the Golden Number squared.

If one adds together the length of two sides, the resultant figure equals the distance a point on the equator travels in metres, in one second, as the Earth rotates on its axis.

If the Great Pyramid was just a few centimetres larger or smaller, none of the above would be true!

Still believe in coincidences?

These remarkable discoveries continue inside the pyramid.

In the upper chamber the length of the four sides added together equals 10 times Pi. If one then subtracts the length of one side one is left with 10 times Phi squared.

It appears that the mathematics and geometry used in the design and construction of the Great Pyramid far surpasses any known knowledge the Egyptians were acknowledged to possess.

A further fact to consider when contemplating the amazingly complex equations used in the design and construction of the Great Pyramid is that many of the above mathematical formulae relate to measurements determined in metres, or metric. The astonishing realisation here is that the length of a metre is based upon precise calculations of the circumference of the Earth, a distance supposedly only discovered by Eratosthenes, a Greek mathematician, in the third century BC. The metre itself was not discovered until 1793AD!

Or should that really say re-discovered?

The advocates of the Egyptology theory insist that the only measuring device available to the Egyptians was the cubit, a varying approximate measuring device with a length supposedly equal to the average length of the forearm. This conclusion is based upon the discovery of a pictogram of a forearm found engraved upon an ancient cubit. But then I suppose this is to be expected, as most of our established history is based upon nothing more than the reputable science of “best guess”!

In 1925 experts and archaeologists including Jean Phillipe Lauer, Eugene Emile Antoniadi, and Jean Kerisel, deduced the actual measurement of the cubit from the dimensions of the Great Pyramid. It is now universally accepted that the true length of a cubit is 0.5236 of a metre or 52cm 3mm and 6/10 of a mm.

However, there are other methods to arrive at this figure. If one were to draw a circle with a diameter of one metre 1 sixth of the circumference of this circle would equal 0.5236 of a metre. Another formula used to arrive at this figure is Pi minus Phi squared, the result is an identical 0.5236!

Whichever process is used to arrive at the precise measurement of a cubit, one has to accept that, given our present understanding of their knowledge, neither of the above methods could have been known to the ancient Egyptians. Yet the very dimensions of the Great Pyramid itself prove beyond any doubt that whoever did build it, either had knowledge of the metric system, or knowledge of intricate mathematical formulae.

There is nonetheless a further measurement encoded into the dimensions of the Great Pyramid. A number that when revealed, shocked and dumbfounded its discoverer, and scientists and mathematicians worldwide.

If one takes a birds eye view of the pyramid (as in the diagram below), and then draws two circles, one inside the base and one outside, then subtracts the circumference of the inner circle from that of the outer, one is left with the number 299,79613.This might seem unremarkable until one realises that this is the measurement of the speed of light! (299,792,458 metres per second).

pyramid-egypt-outer-circle-300x300 The speed of light encoded into the Great Pyramids dimensions

Many, including scholars and historians, will reject the above, insisting that it is all mere chance and coincidence, whilst maintaining that the Egyptians managed to quarry, cut, dress, transport, and place, millions of huge stone blocks with nothing more than primitive tools, and do so with such accuracy and precision that we, as a supposedly vastly more technologically advanced civilisation, couldn’t replicate today.

However, the anomalies of the Great Pyramid of Giza are just the very tip of the iceberg. When one begins to investigate the myriad of other ancient megalithic and prehistoric monuments around the globe, or analyses countless artefacts discovered at these sites, one soon begins to question the reliability of mainstream explanations of these structures and relics, and how or who supposedly built them.

Perhaps this article so far hasn’t completely answered the poser set in the title, and some might consider it has rather offered just anecdotal evidence of a long lost, ancient, and highly civilised society. However, the above is just a taster of the astonishing data to be presented in next issues continuation of this article.

All I can tell you about the next expose is:

West Completely Ignores Massaker Of Christians and Assyrians In Syria

The article about the massaker of Christians in Syria posted below was published in November 2013. Nothing has changed since that moment. And while the world is talking about MH17, the Ukraine, ISIS and the Middle East, the massaker of Christians in Syria is silently going on, and nobody talks about it. The “ethnical cleansing” also concerns the Assyrians.

Is it political correctness that prevents the media from talking?

If you search the Internet, you find little news about the ongoing horror except a few notes about ISIS forcing Christiansto accept their rules.

Assyrians and Christians are under attack in Syria

With extremists battling for control of Iraq’s largest oilfield on Tuesday, upping the stakes in a burgeoning war against the central government in Baghdad, Iraq’s Christians once again find themselves at risk.

Over the past 10 days, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (Isis), also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, a fundamentalism jihadist group, has streamed across the Nineveh plains of northern Iraq from its bases in eastern Syria, capturing a line of towns and cities, including several with large Assyrian and Chaldean Christian populations.

Some 160 Christian families have fled Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city, for Christian-inhabited towns and villages in northern Iraq over the past week, according to Associated Press.

Hundreds more have left seeking safety in the autonomous Kurdish region to the east. Mosul was home to about 130,000 Christians before the US-led 2003 invasion of Iraq and following last week’s Isis takeover, is reported to be almost empty of Christian families.

Assyrians are one of the oldest indigenous communities in the region. Their roots in what is today northern Iraq and eastern Syria go back over 2,000 years, with the latter stages of that history increasingly marred by bloodshed.

During the dying days of the Ottoman Empire as the first World War unfolded, about 750,000 Assyrians were killed as part of the broader slaughter of Christian Armenians and Greeks in modern-day Syria, Iraq and Turkey.

Then in 1933, about 3,000 Assyrian Christians were killed by Iraqi soldiers and Kurds in the northern Iraqi town of Sumel, leading to mass migration across the border to Syria.

Hellish time

More recently, Christians in Iraq have experienced a hellish time. On Christmas Day last year, 37 people were killed in a series of car bomb attacks close to churches in Baghdad, the Iraqi capital. MIDEAST_SYRIA_BEI102-2013MAY04_191925_137.jpg

The wave of kidnappings, bombings and assassinations following the 2003 invasion saw many of the city’s Christians flee to northern Iraq where they have lived in relative safety, until now. As a result, Iraq’s Christian community is today thought to number just 40 per cent of its pre-2003 figure, and today, in the face of the Isis assault, is on the move again.

“Each day we went to bed in fear . . . In our own houses we knew no rest,” a Christian woman from Alqosh in northern Iraq told reporters, speaking of the threat from jihadists.

The danger to Christians in northern Iraq appears not only in the form of jihadists. With Isis viewed as likely to encounter difficulty in holding on to territory in the face of an impending fight-back from better-equipped government forces, a long-standing threat to the slivers of territory in northern Iraq inhabited by Christians has appeared.

Kurdish militias

According to the Assyrian International News Agency, a total of 14 Assyrian towns and villages in the north have in the past week fallen under the control of Kurdish militias.

Iraq’s Kurds have their own designs of expanding territorial control across the north, including to the oil-rich city of Kirkuk which Kurdish peshmerga control since late last week.

The peace and stability enjoyed in Iraqi Kurdistan, an autonomous region in the north of the country and home to the country’s five million Kurds, has proved a rare bright spot in Iraq’s recent history.

“The Kurds control now most of the disputed territories,” said Wladimir Van Wilgenburg, a columnist with Al Monitor and an expert on Kurdish affairs. “They now almost have their national desired borders, only in Diyala [province] there is still a border with the Iraqi army, the rest of the 1,000km is with the Isis.”

Syrian threat In Isis-controlled eastern Syria, Christians have fared little better. Last March, the jihadist group announced Christians there must convert to Islam, pay a tax or face death. Churches have been damaged and crosses, paintings and statues burned in Raqqa, a city in Syria’s east. Several Syrian and foreign priests have been kidnapped and killed by jihadists in Syria over the past three years.

But Christians are preparing to fight back. Their militias today form an important cog in the Syrian regime’s fighting force in the shape of National Defence Forces – groups of civilians armed by the Syrian regime.

Iraqi prime minister Nouri al-Maliki has called on civilians to take up arms and fight against Isis; reports say about 600 Christians in the town of Bartella, 20km from Isis-controlled Mosul, are defending their homes with machine guns and other light weapons.

With the US and other Western governments slow to become involved in another Iraq quagmire, the threat to Christians and other minorities is set to mount.

Article from November 2013

churchdamagesOne of the worst Christian massacres—complete with mass graves, tortured-to-death women and children, and destroyed churches—recently took place in Syria, at the hands of the U.S.-supported jihadi “rebels”; and the U.S. government and its “mainstream media” mouthpiece are, as usual, silent (that is, when not actively trying to minimize matters).

The massacre took place in Sadad, an ancient Syriac Orthodox Christian habitation, so old as to be mentioned in the Old Testament. Most of the region’s inhabitants are poor, as Sadad is situated in the remote desert between Homs and Damascus (desert regions, till now, apparently the only places Syria’s Christians could feel secure; 600 Christian families had earlier fled there for sanctuary from the jihad, only to be followed by it).

In late October, the U.S-supported “opposition” invaded and occupied Sadad for over a week, till ousted by the nation’s military. Among other atrocities, 45 Christians—including women and children—were killed, several tortured to death; Sadat’s 14 churches, some ancient, were ransacked and destroyed; the bodies of six people from one family, ranging from ages 16 to 90, were found at the bottom of a well (an increasingly common fate for “subhuman” Christians).

The jihadis even made a graphic video (with English subtitles) of those whom they massacred, while shouting Islam’s victory-cry, “Allahu Akbar” (which John McCain equates to a Christian saying “thank God”). Another video, made after Sadad was liberated shows more graphic atrocities.

Here are the words of Archbishop Selwanos Boutros Alnemeh, Syriac Orthodox Metropolitan of Homs and Hama (another detailed account, with pictures, appears here):

”What happened in Sadad is the most serious and biggest massacre of Christians in Syria in the past two years and a half… 45 innocent civilians were martyred for no reason, and among them several women and children, church-being-burned-christimany thrown into mass graves. Other civilians were threatened and terrorized. 30 were wounded and 10 are still missing. For one week, 1,500 families were held as hostages and human shields. Among them children, the elderly, the young, men and women…. All the houses of Sadad were robbed and property looted. The churches are damaged and desecrated, deprived of old books and precious furniture… What happened in Sadad is the largest massacre of Christians in Syria and the second in the Middle East, after the one in the Church of Our Lady of Salvation in Iraq, in 2010.”

In the Iraqi attack of 2010, al-Qaeda linked jihadis stormed the church during service killing some 60 Christian worshippers (see here for graphic images of the aftermath).

While the archbishop is correct that this is the “largest massacre of Christians in Syria,” it is but the tip of the iceberg of the persecution the nation’s Christian minority has suffered—including beheadings, church bombings, kidnappings, rapes, and dislocation of hundreds of thousands of Christians—since the war broke out (see Syria entries in monthly persecution series).

A month before Sadad, another ancient Christian region, Ma‘loula, one of the world’s very few regions that still spoke Aramaic, the language of Jesus, was besieged by the jihadis, its churches bombarded and plundered, its inhabitants forced to convert to Islam or die. The last words of one man who refused were: “I am a Christian, and if you want to kill me for this, I do not object to it.”

The archbishop concluded his statement concerning Sadad by asking: “We have shouted aid to the world but no one has listened to us. Where is the Christian conscience? Where is human consciousness? Where are my brothers? I think of all those who are suffering today in mourning and discomfort: We ask everyone to pray for us.”

Serge Trifkovic—who hails from a European region especially acquainted with Islamic jihad—responds to the archbishop as follows:

_”That no “human consciousness” is to be found in the White House, or in the editorial offices of the leading Western media, is now a matter of well-established record. Just try searching for “Sadad” (or alternatively “Saddad”) on the websites of the Department of State or The New York Times. Ditto the leading European dailies, the CNN/BBC/RTF, the human-rights defending “NGOs” et al.

“The problem, of which Archbishop Selwanos Boutros Alnemeh appears unaware, is no longer in the Western elite’s mere indifference to the impending demise of Christianity in the lands of its birth, but in its active, ongoing, and open contribution to that demise. Cyprus (1974) and the Balkans (1991-9) provided the test, Iraq (2003-today) the conclusive proof. In Syria the Obama administration remains committed to supporting the rebels—ah, yes, only the “moderate” ones, like the Christian-murdering “Free Syrian Army” (discretion advised again), not “even though” the result will be the same, but precisely because it will be.”_

In one of the Arabic videos documenting the aftermath of the Sadad massacre, as the mutilated bodies of one family are drawn from a well (around :30 second mark), a middle-aged male relative, in tears, says:

205553_1860815433836_1044442769_2117339_4647893_n”The most precious in the whole universe [his family], are now gone, leaving me alone, but thank God I am still surrounded by these loving people who remain. I want to say, let people [the jihadis] return to their minds. The problems of the world can only be solved by knowledge and brains. Enough insanity, the nerves of the people are shredded. Enough, enough—return to your minds; you people, you humans—return to your humanity, enough crimes.”

As a sign of the times, here is a Syrian, an “easterner,” evoking rationalism and humanity, products of the Christian West, at a time when the post-Christian West is governed by anything and everything—propaganda, emotionalism, mindless indoctrination—but the twain.

Sumerian King List And Rocket Traveling King Etana Read

sumerianklist_smallMessageToEagle.com – One of the most intriguing ancient documents representing Sumerian literature is the Sumerian King List, produced at the end of the third millennium BC (most probably during the reign of the third dynasty of Ur).

According to Zecharia Sitchin, the Sumerian King List describes the first settlements of the Anunnaki on Earth and lists the kingships of the first Anunnaki leaders before the Deluge. The list is an important chronographic document from ancient Mesopotamia that records the sequence of the leaders and the lengths of their reigns.

The first considerable fragment of the Sumerian King List was published in 1906. It was found in the temple library of Nippur at the turn of the century. Since that date, more than 15 different fragments and at least one fairly complete list have been found and published.

sumerianklist03Sumerian King Etana riding the eagle – Akkadian seal.

Most of these manuscripts have been dated to the 1st dynasty of Babylon. All the documents show extensive and detailed agreement among themselves.

Thus it appears that the extant texts ultimately descend from a common original, i.e., that they are copies, or even copies of copies, of a single original document.

The initial section deals with eight kings who reigned before the Flood and is significantly different from the rest. Two main versions exist, the surviving tablets being known as Weld-Blundell (W-B) 62 and 144 respectively, and both are thought to have been originally compiled around the start of the second millennium BC.

…..There is also a third version, a much later compilation by Berossus from the third century BC.

Not only do these lists contain a record of all the post-flood kings of ancient Mesopotamia through to the time of their compilation, but, at the beginning, we once again find a list of antediluvian kings-and this time their total period of kingship does appear to stretch way back into antiquity.

The Sumerian King List has different versions represented by a number of only fragmentary cuneiform sources that are dated to the Ur III period (ca. 2119-2004 B.C.) and Old Babylonian period (ca. 2000-1600 B.C.). These sources were discovered at different quarters of ancient Mesopotamia and its periphery, including Nippur, Isin, Kish, Larsa, and Susa.

Scientific Proof That Our DNA Is Mutating?

The research of human DNA has recently been enjoying a huge increase of interest by a broad audience.
Modern genetic research makes it possible to trace populations and their migrations back into a distant past in order to shed some light on the mysterious origins of man. But it also holds the chance for us to eventually have a look into the future and have some hints of what the future of mankind might look like. Where’s our species going?

The idea that human DNA might consist of 12 strands instead of two – having the remaining strands to be (re)activated – or that it might evolve into having 12 strands has been making its way through the Internet and media for several years now. And while conservative scholars didn’t consider this idea noteworthy in any way, the recent stunning story of UK toddler Alfie Clamp has fueled the debate around such hypothesis again.

Gregg Prescott from in5D which we quoted already in several occasions, is convinced that the story of Alfie Clamp and a few more facts constitute scientific proof for our DNA to be mutating.

The following interview and description of facts are extracted from an article of Gregg Prescott that recently appeared on WakingTimes. Following the explicit request of Waking Times to spread the content, we’re reproduce this content for distribution and further sharing.

We are taking an evolutionary leap

Dr. Berrenda Fox is a holistic practitioner of the Avalon Wellness Centre in Mt Shasta, California. In an interview with Patricia Resch, Dr. Fox stated the following:

PR: What are the changes that are happening at this time on the planet, and how are our bodies being affected?

BF: There are major changes, mutations that haven’t occurred, according to geneticists, since the time we supposedly came out of the water. Several years ago in Mexico City there was a convention of geneticists from around the world, and the main topic was the DNA change. We are making an evolutionary change, yet we don’t know what we are changing into.

PR: How is our DNA changing?

BF: Everyone has one double helix of DNA. What we are finding is that there are other helixes that are being formed. In the double helix there are two strands of DNA coiled into a spiral. It is my understanding that we will be developing twelve helixes. During this time, which seems to have started maybe 5 to 20 years ago, we have been mutating. This is the scientific explanation. It is a mutation of our species into something for which the end result is not yet known.

The changes are not known publicly, because the scientific community feels it would frighten the population. However, people are changing at the cellular level. I am working with three children right now who have three DNA helixes. Most people know and feel this. Many religions have talked about the change and know it will come about in different ways. We know it is a positive mutation even though physically, mentally, and emotionally it can be misunderstood and frightening.

PR: Are these children displaying any characteristics different from other children?

BF: These are children who can move objects across the room just by concentrating on them, or they can fill glasses of water just by looking at them. They’re telepathic. You would almost think by knowing these children that they are half angelic or superhuman, but they’re not. I think they are what we are growing into during the next few decades.

PR: Do you think this will happen to all of us?

BF: It seems like most people who were born before 1940 have not been able to make the shift, but have initiated something into the next generation that gives them the capacity to form another helix within our lifetime. Our immune and endocrine systems are the most evident of these changes. That is one of the reasons I work with research in immunological testing and therapy.

Some adults that I have tested actually do have another DNA helix forming. Some are even getting their third. These people are going through a lot of major shifts in their consciousness and physical bodies, because it is all one. In my opinion, the Earth and everyone here is raising its vibration. Many of the children born recently have bodies that are magnetically lighter.

PR: What other changes should we expect to see?

BF: There will be no disease, we will not need to die. We will be able to learn our lessons, not through suffering, but through joy and love. The old system has to crumble away, and is not doing that without putting up a big fight. So you have all the wars; a lot of the medical-type of healing is not working; the government is not working.

Biophotons and DNA

Dr. Fritz Albert Popp’s research confirmed the existence of biophotons, which are particles of light, with no mass, that transmit information within and between cells. Dr. Popp discovered that the coherent emission of bio-photons is connected to energy and information transfer processes in the biological organisms, and has been linked to the function of DNA and to gene regulation.

In simpler terms, our bodies not only emit light, but they also store light within our DNA.

“A living cell requires energy not only for all its functions, but also for the maintenance of its structure. Without energy, life would be extinguished instantaneously, and the cellular fabric would collapse. The source of this energy is the sun’s radiation.”

Nobel Peace Prize recipient and Hungarian biochemist Albert von Szent-Györgyi

“The eyes are precisely where the solar radiation that feeds life enters the body.” – Johan Boswinkel

Four strand DNA reported by mainstream media

In a science article on NBC, ” researchers have found four-stranded DNA is also lurking in human cells. The odd structures are called G-quadruplexes because they form in regions of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) that are full of guanine, one of the DNA molecule’s four building blocks, with the others being adenine, cytosine, thymine. The structure comprises four guanines held together by a type of hydrogen bonding to form a sort of squarelike shape. (The DNA molecule is itself a double strand held together by these building blocks and wrapped together like a helix.)”

“The study showed that if an inhibitor is used to block DNA replication, quadruplex levels go down – proving the idea that DNA is dynamic, with structures constantly being formed and unformed.”

Is it possible that vaccinations, chemtrails and GMO’s have been acting as DNA inhibitors up until this point in time?

Reprogramming your DNA through words and frequencies

Dr. Peter Gariaev’s research into DNA concluded that DNA may be the universal language of spirituality, adding “wave genetics” shows that DNA functions like a holographic computer, part of the larger hologram of the information wave reality. Our DNA has the capabilities of hypercommunication—telepathy, remote sensing and remote feeling, along with other psychic abilities. We also have the ability to reprogram our genetic blueprint with simple word and frequencies.

How can we change our DNA right now?

Dr Masaru Emoto’s research has concluded that water has consciousness. Based on this premise, I have decided to experiment with water, Ho’oponopono, sigils and positive affirmations.

In February of 2012, I started drinking distilled water as recommended by Andrew Norton Webber.

I also drastically changed my eating habits from your typical processed food, GMO-ladened diet to virtually all organic, including grass fed meat, fresh squeezed juices and homemade smoothies. Initially, I noticed an immediate change in my complexion as well as energy levels but after 7 months or so, I also noticed that I was losing my hair and wondered if that was attributed to drinking distilled water, so I stopped doing this but soon found something even more amazing.

After researching the benefits of ozone water, I decided to buy an ozone generator to infuse my water with extra oxygen. In addition, as per Dr. Masaru Emoto’s research into the consciousness of water, I added affirmations and Ho’oponopono.

Ho’oponopono is the Hawaiian Code of Forgiveness that follows 4 simple mantras:

1. I love you.

2. I’m sorry.

3. Please forgive me.

4. Thank you.

Dr. Masaru Emoto’s research show us that water has consciousness, so I combined Ho’oponopono with positive self-affirmations.

My affirmations are:

1. My pineal gland is fully open.

2. My chakras are clear and balanced.

3. My DNA codes are fully open to allow me to help myself and others in the best interests of humanity.

I decided to take this one step further after researching the power of sigils. A sigil is an inscribed or painted symbol considered by many to have magical powers.

Many corporate logos use symbols as a way to subconsciously influence us. A perfect example would be the Shell logo, which innocently looks like a shell, but it actually represents the sun and sun-worshipping, which preexisted before many religious belief systems.

20140710-152929.jpg
Exxon uses symbols and sigils as a way to represent Saturn. In astrotheology, Saturn is Satan. Did you ever wonder why we exchange rings during wedding ceremonies? The rings represent the rings of Saturn (Satan). Look no further than the pre-Christian Chritmas-time celebration of Saturnalia, which was a week of debauchery and drunkenness.

In this world of polarity and duality, the same practices can be done with pure intent.

I decided to make a sigil glass that contained all of my affirmations. This is what it looks like:

20140710-153018.jpg
I buy 5 gallon jugs of BPA free spring water from Zephyrhills and dispense it from a water cooler. Even my dog drinks this water! I have an ozone machine by the water dispenser.

The particular ozone machine that I use is a A2Z Ozone Aqua 6 Multi Purpose Ozone Generator because it gives me the biggest bang for the buck with a 600 mg/h ozone output.

After pouring water into my sigil glass, I speak my affirmations to the water, then I apply Ho’oponopono. I finish by saying, “Please send these messages to every cell in my body. Namaste.”

It is important to keep in mind that the ozone leaves the water relatively quickly, so your best bet is to drink it as quickly as possible. Some reports say that it only lasts up to an hour or two before dissipating.

High pitched frequencies and DNA

Many people are hearing high pitched frequencies that are not associated with tinnitus or a Vitamin D deficiency and some people believe these have something to do with a DNA upgrade.

In an In5D poll on the article, Do you hear perpetual high pitched frequencies? You’re not alone!, 97.8 people who responded confirmed hearing high pitched frequencies. Is there a spiritual reason for these frequencies and/or is it possible that they are helping to evolve our DNA?

As a musician, it’s easy for me to figure out what tones I hear, which are predominantly in the key of B, but also in F# and C. What sounds do you hear, if any?

We are beings of LIGHT

Science has proven that our DNA is evolving. In order to keep the status quo, is it possible that our vaccinations are working as inhibitors to deter this process? Despit the vaccinations, GMO’s and chemtrails, is it possible that our DNA will continue to evolve into a form of higher consciousness?

Only time will tell…

“We know today that man, essentially, is a being of light. And the modern science of photobiology is presently proving this. In terms of healing the implications are immense. We now know, for example, that quanta of light can initiate, or arrest, cascade-like reactions in the cells, and that genetic cellular damage can be virtually repaired, within hours, by faint beams of light.

We are still on the threshold of fully understanding the complex relationship between light and life, but we can now say emphatically, that the function of our entire metabolism is dependent on light.” – Dr. Fritz Albert Popp

Consciousness On And Off?

Consciousness on-off switch discovered deep in brain

20140704-114540.jpgONE moment you’re conscious, the next you’re not. For the first time, researchers have switched off consciousness by electrically stimulating a single brain area.

Scientists have been probing individual regions of the brain for over a century, exploring their function by zapping them with electricity and temporarily putting them out of action. Despite this, they have never been able to turn off consciousness – until now.

Although only tested in one person, the discovery suggests that a single area – the claustrum – might be integral to combining disparate brain activity into a seamless package of thoughts, sensations and emotions. It takes us a step closer to answering a problem that has confounded scientists and philosophers for millennia – namely how our conscious awareness arises.

Many theories abound but most agree that consciousness has to involve the integration of activity from several brain networks, allowing us to perceive our surroundings as one single unifying experience rather than isolated sensory perceptions.

One proponent of this idea was Francis Crick, a pioneering neuroscientist who earlier in his career had identified the structure of DNA. Just days before he died in July 2004, Crick was working on a paper that suggested our consciousness needs something akin to an orchestra conductor to bind all of our different external and internal perceptions together.

With his colleague Christof Koch, at the Allen Institute for Brain Science in Seattle, he hypothesised that this conductor would need to rapidly integrate information across distinct regions of the brain and bind together information arriving at different times. For example, information about the smell and colour of a rose, its name, and a memory of its relevance, can be bound into one conscious experience of being handed a rose on Valentine’s day.

The pair suggested that the claustrum – a thin, sheet-like structure that lies hidden deep inside the brain – is perfectly suited to this job (Philosophical Transactions of The Royal Society B, doi.org/djjw5m).

It now looks as if Crick and Koch were on to something. In a study published last week, Mohamad Koubeissi at the George Washington University in Washington DC and his colleagues describe how they managed to switch a woman’s consciousness off and on by stimulating her claustrum. The woman has epilepsy so the team were using deep brain electrodes to record signals from different brain regions to work out where her seizures originate. One electrode was positioned next to the claustrum, an area that had never been stimulated before.

When the team zapped the area with high frequency electrical impulses, the woman lost consciousness. She stopped reading and stared blankly into space, she didn’t respond to auditory or visual commands and her breathing slowed. As soon as the stimulation stopped, she immediately regained consciousness with no memory of the event. The same thing happened every time the area was stimulated during two days of experiments (Epilepsy and Behavior, doi.org/tgn).

To confirm that they were affecting the woman’s consciousness rather than just her ability to speak or move, the team asked her to repeat the word “house” or snap her fingers before the stimulation began. If the stimulation was disrupting a brain region responsible for movement or language she would have stopped moving or talking almost immediately. Instead, she gradually spoke more quietly or moved less and less until she drifted into unconsciousness. Since there was no sign of epileptic brain activity during or after the stimulation, the team is sure that it wasn’t a side effect of a seizure.

Koubeissi thinks that the results do indeed suggest that the claustrum plays a vital role in triggering conscious experience. “I would liken it to a car,” he says. “A car on the road has many parts that facilitate its movement – the gas, the transmission, the engine – but there’s only one spot where you turn the key and it all switches on and works together. So while consciousness is a complicated process created via many structures and networks – we may have found the key.”

Awake but unconscious

Counter-intuitively, Koubeissi’s team found that the woman’s loss of consciousness was associated with increased synchrony of electrical activity, or brainwaves, in the frontal and parietal regions of the brain that participate in conscious awareness. Although different areas of the brain are thought to synchronise activity to bind different aspects of an experience together, too much synchronisation seems to be bad. The brain can’t distinguish one aspect from another, stopping a cohesive experience emerging.

Since similar brainwaves occur during an epileptic seizure, Koubeissi’s team now plans to investigate whether lower frequency stimulation of the claustrum could jolt them back to normal. It may even be worth trying for people in a minimally conscious state, he says. “Perhaps we could try to stimulate this region in an attempt to push them out of this state.”

Anil Seth, who studies consciousness at the University of Sussex, UK, warns that we have to be cautious when interpreting behaviour from a single case study. The woman was missing part of her hippocampus, which was removed to treat her epilepsy, so she doesn’t represent a “normal” brain, he says.

However, he points out that the interesting thing about this study is that the person was still awake. “Normally when we look at conscious states we are looking at awake versus sleep, or coma versus vegetative state, or anaesthesia.” Most of these involve changes of wakefulness as well as consciousness but not this time, says Seth. “So even though it’s a single case study, it’s potentially quite informative about what’s happening when you selectively modulate consciousness alone.”

“Francis would have been pleased as punch,” says Koch, who was told by Crick’s wife that on his deathbed, Crick was hallucinating an argument with Koch about the claustrum and its connection to consciousness.

“Ultimately, if we know how consciousness is created and which parts of the brain are involved then we can understand who has it and who doesn’t,” says Koch. “Do robots have it? Do fetuses? Does a cat or dog or worm? This study is incredibly intriguing but it is one brick in a large edifice of consciousness that we’re trying to build.”

Alien Abductees Over the Moon To Find a Close-Encounter Group

HASTINGS, England—Telling your family and friends that you’ve been abducted by aliens is hard. Even harder is revealing to them you may actually be part extraterrestrial.

A team of self-described alien investigators recently delivered that second bit of news to Adam Chatterton, 34 years old, a normal-looking Englishman. Using a technique known as “dowsing,” the team says it identified residues on Mr. Chatterton suggesting he may have otherworldly origins.

Mr. Chatterton, who manages a riding stable, took the revelation in stride. “It wasn’t that much of a shock,” he said, adding that he suspected as much for some time.

The tests on Mr. Chatterton were arranged by Joanne Summerscales, founder of the Anomalous Mind Management, Abductee, Contactee, Helpline Project, or AMMACH. The British group provides counseling and support to people who have had the troubling experience of believing they have had contact with aliens.

Mr. Chatterton and around 40 others convened last month in this seaside town for AMMACH’s annual conference, which aims to encourage close encounters with people who claim to have had close encounters. Admission was £45, or about $75, including a light lunch of quiche and salad.

This year’s conference may come at a particularly important time. Ms. Summerscales and others at the meeting say our intergalactic neighbors may be close to revealing themselves to the public at large, an event that would have important implications in many areas.

“It changes everything about everything,” Ms. Summerscales said. “So it’s quite big.”

Scientists say it is certainly possible that intelligent life exists somewhere in the universe, even probable depending on the number of Earth-like planets out there and a few other conditions. But the odds that aliens hit Earth out of the vast cosmic dartboard and had the technological capability to make the trip are extremely low, they say.

Such arguments carry little weight with many people. A Reuters Ipsos poll of 23,000 adults across the world in 2010 found that 20% not only believe aliens exist but say they even walk among us disguised as people.

ImageIn the three years since founding her group, Ms. Summerscales, who doesn’t recall being abducted herself, says she has been in touch with around 1,500 people who say they have had contact with aliens. People like Mike Smith, who in a speech at the conference said that he had been contacted and abducted multiple times by otherworldly entities—perhaps aliens, perhaps creatures from another dimension.

“I don’t want to be a nutter who’s been abducted,” said Mr. Smith, 64, a traveling musician, “but I am.”

Many at the conference rejected the “nutter” label. Geoffrey Crockford, a retired occupational hygienist who is a member of the team that tested Mr. Chatterton, said his team’s discoveries show aliens have visited and continue to visit the Earth.

The group spends much of its time hopscotching around Europe, identifying supposed alien burial and spacecraft landing sites. They use metal dowsing rods, which are held parallel and then swing into a crossed position, they say, in the presence of elements, such as iridium, supposedly left behind by extraterrestrials. Iridium is a rare element in the Earth’s crust, but is often found in meteorites.

What do the aliens want? It is unclear, but they probably mean no harm, Mr. Crockford said at the conference. He suspects they abide by some sort of cosmic convention that forbids harming other intelligent life.

“The one thing we’re worried about is they found out what we’re doing, and that would blow their cover,” Mr. Crockford said. “Then they might react to that.”

A reporter asked him whether it was possible that aliens read The Wall Street Journal.

“Probably not,” Mr. Crockford said.

Reports of alien abduction in the U.K. and elsewhere have become more frequent and complex since the 1960s, when an American couple’s alleged encounter with a spacecraft in New Hampshire became one of the first widely publicized abduction stories.

“What you find is that they’re all trying to outdo each other,” said David Clarke, a journalism professor at Sheffield Hallam University who has studied reports of alien abduction but doesn’t believe in them. “Not only do you have to be abducted, you’ve got to have had hybrid babies with them as well.”

Take Simon Parkes, for example: a driving instructor and Labour Party town councilor in Whitby, who told Ms. Summerscales in a videotaped interview several years ago that he was taken by an alien he called the Cat Queen, who later bore him a child named Zarka. Also, his real mother is a green alien with eight fingers, he said.

Many discussions about alien abduction come down to two questions: Are they making it up? And if not, are they crazy? But Mr. Parkes said in an interview that he rarely hears such questions.

“The interesting thing is, I announced all this, and then I was elected,” Mr. Parkes said. “I’m the man who fixes the streetlights when they’re not working.”

The U.K. Ministry of Defence was for a while an object of scrutiny for the alien obsessed. The military had a classified program starting in the 1950s that monitored UFO reports, but the task of responding to the public’s inquiries became too onerous. The government closed it during budget cuts in 2009, at which point the entire program consisted of one person behind a desk.

“The Ministry of Defence has no expertise or role in respect of UFO/flying saucer matters or to the question of the existence or otherwise of extraterrestrial life-forms, about which it remains totally open-minded,” the UFO desk officer wrote in one of many declassified documents now in the U.K. National Archives that appear to contain no evidence of alien contact with humans.

Colin Woodford, a retired British Airways ground-crew worker attending the conference, doubts the government released all its UFO files. “They’re just putting out some froth,” he said.

As the meeting ended, Nigel Hughes, a member of Mr. Crockford’s team, announced a special attraction: “a pair of trousers from a well-documented U.F.O. encounter.”

The pants belonged to a man who reported being dragged along the ground in Scotland by an alien spacecraft in 1979.

“We’re very fortunate,” Mr. Hughes said.

Soon, Mr. Crockford was waving his dowsing rods over the torn black pants, as a crowd looked on. The results were inconclusive.

NASA Reports Mysterious Signal From Outer Space

By:

NASA has detected a mysterious signal from deep outer space. The signal was detected using the agency’s Chandra X-ray Observatory and ESA’s XMM-Newton. One intriguing possibility is that the X-rays are produced by the decay of sterile neutrinos, a type of particle that has been proposed as a candidate for dark matter.

“We know that the dark matter explanation is a long shot, but the pay-off would be huge if we’re right,” said Esra Bulbul of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) in Cambridge, Mass. who led the study. “So we’re going to keep testing this interpretation and see where it takes us.”

While the NASA X-ray mysterious signal holds exciting potential, these results must be confirmed with additional data to rule out other explanations and determine whether it is plausible that dark matter has been observed.

Astronomers think dark matter constitutes 85% of the matter in the Universe, but does not emit or absorb light like “normal” matter such as protons, neutrons and electrons that make up the familiar elements observed in planets, stars, and galaxies. Because of this, scientists must use indirect methods to search for clues about dark matter.

NASA’s latest mysterious signal results from Chandra and XMM-Newton consist of an unidentified X-ray emission line, that is, a spike of intensity at a very specific wavelength of X-ray light. Astronomers detected this emission line in the Perseus galaxy cluster using both Chandra and XMM-Newton. They also found the line in a combined study of 73 other galaxy clusters with XMM-Newton.

The authors suggest this emission line could be a signature from the decay of a “sterile neutrino.” Sterile neutrinos are a hypothetical type of neutrino that is predicted to interact with normal matter only via gravity. Some scientists have proposed that sterile neutrinos may at least partially explain dark matter.

“We have a lot of work to do before we can claim, with any confidence, that we’ve found sterile neutrinos,” said Maxim Markevitch, a co-author from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. “But just the possibility of finding them has us very excited.”

NASA says the mysterious signal has one source of uncertainty. The detection of this emission line is pushing the capabilities of the two observatories in terms of sensitivity. Also, there may be explanations other than sterile neutrinos if this X-ray emission line is deemed to be real.

There are ways that normal matter in the cluster could have produced the line, although the team’s analysis suggested that all of these would involve unlikely changes to our understanding of physical conditions in the galaxy cluster or the details of the atomic physics of extremely hot gases.

The NASA authors of this mysterious signal note that even if the sterile neutrino interpretation is correct, their detection does not necessarily imply that all of dark matter is composed of these particles. As previously reported by NewsOXY, scientists found a newly discovered water planet in 2012. It is located in the right distance from its sun to hold life.

Cancer Breakthrough: Researchers Find Treatment That Kills Every Kind Of Cancer Tumor

Researchers might have found the Holy Grail in the war against cancer, a miracle drug that has killed every kind of cancer tumor it has come in contact with.

The drug works by blocking a protein called CD47 that is essentially a “do not eat” signal to the body’s immune system, according to Science Magazine.

This protein is produced in healthy blood cells but researchers at Stanford University found that cancer cells produced an inordinate amount of the protein thus tricking the immune system into not destroying the harmful cells.

With this observation in mind, the researchers built an antibody that blocked cancer’s CD47 so that the body’s immune system attacked the dangerous cells.

So far, researchers have used the antibody in mice with human breast, ovary, colon, bladder, brain, liver and prostate tumors transplanted into them. In each of the cases the antibody forced the mice’s immune system to kill the cancer cells.

“We showed that even after the tumor has taken hold, the antibody can either cure the tumor or slow its growth and prevent metastasis,” said biologist Irving Weissman of the Stanford University School of Medicine in Palo Alto, California.

One side effect of the treatment was that healthy cells were subjected to short-term attacks by the mice’s immune system, but the effect was nothing in comparison to the damage done to the cancer cells.

Weissman’s group recently received a $20 million dollar grant to move their research from mouse to human safety testing.
