“Are you for Obama or for McCain?” “Are you a Liberal or a Conservative?” “Do you favor the death penalty for murderers?”
These questions, and many others we get asked a lot in life, are examples of “choices” that are actually representative of a polarized situation. More specifically, they are representative of a primitive information system; and require you to take sides. There are only two sides, or two data points, in such a primitive information system.
Information systems help us to organize data so that data can be used to perform useful work. Banks, corporations, and businesses of all kinds use information systems to keep track of accounts, sales, payroll, etc.
Every choice you make in life is dependent in one way or another on an information system. The problem is, we don’t recognize that the situations we get into in life are composed of information, and can be resolved by simply examining the information contained within the situation.
Primitive information systems are polarizing, and force you to take sides. They have very limited degrees of freedom, which means that the choices you have are limited. Nuanced information systems have many degrees of freedom, and offer a wide variety of choices. These nuanced information systems, however, can only be maintained in a cooperative environment.
For example, a hierarchical system like the military offers you limited choices: you follow orders or get kicked out. Any pyramidical structure, like a dictatorship, forces you to “toe the line” because there are almost no degrees of freedom. “Degrees of freedom” is a term that comes from physics, and it describes all of the possible states of a system. For example, a weather system might have any number of possible states, from clear and dry to windy and stormy. If a physical system is constrained to act only in certain ways, it has a limited degree of freedom. The swinging pendulum on a clock, for example, is constrained to go back and forth over the same path, over and over. But when you put a pot of water on the stove to boil, the water molecules can fly off in many different directions. In the United States, we once had many more degrees of freedom than we do now. Draconian laws passed after 9-11 to “fight terrorism” have restricted the freedoms of all citizens. When my wife and I tried to go to Vancouver, Canada in 2008, we had to cancel the trip because her passport had expired. Before 9 – 11, people passed freely back and forth over the Canadian border without hindrance.
(If you think that the restriction of freedom is coincidental, you need to see the film presented by Dr. Stephen Greer of the Disclosure Project. In it, Dr. Carol Rosin, an aerospace executive and associate of the late Werner von Braun, father of the American space program, describes how von Braun in 1977 predicted the militarization of space in four stages, using four threats: the Cold War, terrorism (so-called “rogue states” like North Korea or Iran), an asteroid, and finally, the threat of an alien invasion. Von Braun stated categorically (and he was in a position to know) that a hoaxed “alien invasion” would be the pretext for the establishment of a world dictatorship by a group of nutty people who currently control the distribution of fossil fuels. Von Braun said, “and Carol, ALL of it is a lie.” But that is a subject for another article. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kpHAxxRKksQ&feature=channel).
In life, it is generally better for our mental health to get involved in situations that give us a lot of choices, rather than just a few. When you walk into the TV store to buy an HDTV, it’s better to have 60 choices than just one or two. In general, the more degrees of freedom you have, the better off you are. If you have 5 job offers, with a range of opportunities and salary, it’s better than just having one measly offer.
A hierarchical information system constrains the participants, and involves a small number of choices. These primitive information systems create environments that force you to take sides, and make it easy for those at the top to manipulate the system. They are, by definition, polarizing. If there are only a very limited number of choices, it’s much easier to keep track of what everyone is doing, and stop unwanted behavior. That is why tyrannical political and economic systems always work to limit choices, and are often characterized by conflict. People like choices, and they don’t like to be constrained! Whenever you see a lot of conflict, examine the situation and the players, and look to see what kind of information system has been created. You will almost always find a polarized environment with very few choices.
Whenever you see a system that is going in the direction of limiting choices, you can be assured that that system is being manipulated for the benefit of a few.
Information systems with lots of degrees of freedom, on the other hand, are always based on cooperation, and result in high productivity, creativity, and freedom of choice for the participants.
In life, the idea is to get involved with nuanced information systems that offer a large number of choices. Successful organizations maintain a creative environment for their employees, and allow them a large degree of freedom to make choices in the execution of the duties. Control freaks and other insecure people always work to create systems with limited choices.
Cooperation is the first requisite of any sane organization or society, and requires that participants freely agree on the goals. All group members are “on the same page.” Successful organizations have managed to get around the idea of “taking sides” and have established an organizational culture in which agreement on a clearly defined goal, and cooperative action, are primary. They do this by creating information systems (environments) with many degrees of freedom. In these lively and productive organizations, participants perceive no, or very few, barriers to the goal.
The point of this article is to remind you that simply by observing a situation, you can count the number of degrees of freedom and that will tell you whether you are involved in a situation that is likely to be polarizing, or cooperative. You can look at how a group you are in (or a country) is evolving (toward more, or restricted, choices) and determine what is likely to happen next.
So how does a situation evolve into a polarized one, or into one that leads to cooperation and agreement? Well, we can probably agree that a polarized situation – like a family feud, or politics – is immature and inefficient. A cooperative organization is uptone and productive. A polarized group is inefficient, because individuals within it are fighting each other, trying to ascend to some position of status at the expense of others.
Politics, of course, is the ultimate in immaturity. Politicians need to take sides in order to show that they are strong on issues of concern to the voters, indicating that the entire information system is very primitive.
What do you do when you take sides? You define a position clearly and hold to it. But almost paradoxically, this is exactly what you have to do when applying the Law of Attraction to a positive goal and sticking to it for success. If you don’t know what you want, you certainly can’t develop a plan to get it! Without a clear idea of what is wanted, there is no intent, and without intent there is no effective action.
In order for intent to exist you have to hold a position. But there has to be a distinction between holding a position in a polarizing and unproductive situation, and holding a position cooperatively in order to accomplish a goal. Because the political choices are so limited in the United States, for example, desperate voters lurch toward the Democrats and back to the Republicans in a desperate hope that one of these parties can solve our problems. Two years ago, in 2008, American voters evicted the Republicans because they were incompetent. Now, voters want to throw out the Democrats and replace them with the Republicans! Nothing seems to change, because a primitive information system is locked into conflict on a very limited series of issues. As Albert Einstein once said, “insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”
In politics, taking a position is almost always confrontational and argumentative. This situation almost always leads to a stalemate, because the intent is to block the other side from achieving their agenda. Cooperation also requires a very clear-cut goal and a very firm position, but the difference is broad agreement. In successful groups there is broad agreement on the goal, AND the absence of perceived barriers. Agreement on a goal is characteristic of any group, even a severely polarized group. The difference between a productive, cooperative group and a polarized group is that in the former there is a concentration on a positive goal, and in the latter the group members are fighting obstacles.
Take, for example, an organization such as a brokerage firm that engages in naked short selling. Naked short selling is an illegal form of trading all too common in our stock markets, involving the sale of phantom securities. A brokerage firm that engages in these activities will automatically see a barrier in governmental organizations like the SEC that are mandated by law to eradicate illegal trading practices. So this group will almost automatically evolve into a polarized group in which enemies are seen, and fought against, in the routine day-to-day operation of their organization.
A polarized environment will be created whenever any group perceives an obstacle to their goal. “We have to defeat our competition before we can be number one in our market. Therefore we have to squash XYZ Corp before we can be successful.” What if the group had this idea instead: “We will make such a great product, and back it up so well, that we will soon be number one in our market.” In both cases, a firm position was agreed upon, but in the latter case, the group members didn’t focus on barriers; they focused on a positive goal.
Perceived barriers will often morph into an “us against them” mentality. Sometimes that mentality can create an esprit-de-corps – as in a military group sent off to fight together against an enemy. But most often a polarized belief system will result in resistance to the perceived barrier, and in inefficiency.
So the way to judge whether a group is worth joining is to look at the level of cooperation within it, and determine whether it is fighting against something. But there are nuances to cooperation itself!
Hierarchical, top-down structures are usually controlled from the top and get individuals to “toe the line.” If you observe these groups you can see members cooperating, but if you look closer, paying attention to the scale of vibration/emotion, you can see that participants are acting out of fear or because “we have to.” These organizations often use fear, or sanctions, to control group members. These organizations are inefficient, because the participants are not self-motivated; the group members need a “kick in the pants” to keep them working.
Even groups that have a positive goal can be polarized, however. Charitable organizations can have a culture of competition, where members are trying to outdo each other, or rise to positions where they get to make decisions for the group. Such internal polarization makes the group inefficient, using much of their creative energy in intra-organizational struggles for power.
Effective cooperation must involve not only agreement, but also willingness, of the participants. And this leads us directly back to the scale of emotion/vibration. True cooperation exists at the higher levels of emotion; control structures exist somewhere around fear and anger, and no organization is possible if you go low enough on the scale.
Higher emotions: Cooperation: high volume of life force used for creative purposes. Few or no barriers seen in the group’s accomplishment of its goals. Focus of group members is outward toward the goal, not in internal struggles for power. High degree of freedom.
Anger, Fear: Hierarchical organizations: dictatorships, etc. Life force controlled, used for domination. Overcoming barriers, or internal struggles for power, are a prominent part of the group’s culture. Very limited degree of freedom.
Apathy: No organization possible; too little life force available
Organizations and groups that limit choice force participants down the scale of vibration/emotion. Then you either get a revolution and the group disintegrates, or the group goes down the scale to apathy and it falls apart. This has been the pattern for humanity for the past 5,000 years: rise and fall. And it always starts by limiting choices. In this article, I’m trying to show how limiting choices creates primitive information systems that can be easily recognized, and then changed for the better.
You can judge the effectiveness and the intelligence of an organization by its position on the scale of vibration/emotion. And you can measure that by just looking around and observing the group members.
I hope that this article has made it easier for you to observe the groups you belong to, and to evaluate them. I guarantee that you will have a much better time in those groups devoted to cooperation, and that offer many degrees of freedom, than those devoted to fighting for or against something.
The key is to recognize that all organizations and groups create information systems. Look behind the players and determine what that information system is, and whether it is evolving toward greater or lesser choice.

This month we look at banking and finance, the underpinnings for any political system, and introduce a fascinating book that illustrates one man’s personal awakening about the United States’ role in the global economy.
The banking sector of the Western world is creating a global debt machine that is sucking the life out of the economy, transferring wealth from the middle classes to the elites who control the creation of money. Find out how this works and what you can do about it!
1) Renaissance 2.0
From the Council on Spiritual, Psychological, and Economic Renewal. In this 6 part video course, discover how the banking system has evolved globally, and taken politics along with it, and what we can do to “brighten the future.”
2) Andrew Gause analyzes the “Financial Reform” bill
Ever wonder what was in that gigantic financial reorganization bill Congress passed recently? It is over 2,300 pages! I can guarantee that no one in Congress has read the entire bill, yet it was voted on and passed anyway.
Well, noted currency historian Andrew Gause HAS read all 2,300+ pages of the bill, and he discusses it in this radio interview with an independent Austin, Texas radio station. This is important information for all Americans.
Part 1 of 9 ten minute You Tube videos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owzPAEaZ0jw&feature=related
3) Confessions of an Economic Hit-Man by John Perkins
Here is a personal story of what we have been discussing in 1) and 2).
Mr. Perkins wrote his book in 2004 after a career in an international consulting firm, covertly working for the National Security Agency. This memoir is well written, informative, and eye-opening.
Now an international best-seller, Perkins says about his book: “It is accomplishing an important objective in inspiring people to think and talk and to know that we can change the world.”
Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:
‘I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow
private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will
grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property – until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers
Kenneth J. M. MacLean
We have all heard the advice that “accepting” whatever situation you are in will lead to a positive result. This is basically the same as “say yes to it” or “stop resisting it.”
My reaction to hearing this sort of generalized self-help guidance is: whatever.
It’s good advice, but very glib. When you are actually IN an undesirable situation, you don’t want to hear anyone say “just accept it.” At least I don’t! I’m looking for practical solutions and I want them NOW.
My emotional reaction is usually something like this: “excuse me, but the situation is NOT acceptable! If I accept a bad situation I am just rolling over and giving up. How can you get a positive outcome by accepting something negative? It doesn’t make sense!”
Well, it turns out that accepting the situation IS the key to a positive outcome. But you have to do it a certain way.
I am going to share two examples from real life to illustrate this idea, from Amanda Goldston, my co-host on the Interview With Spirit show. Amanda’s examples are compelling because they are serious, real-life situations that were solved, almost magically, by the fundamental idea of acceptance..
Amanda is involved in a serious dispute with a mortgage company that is trying to take away her home. She has been battling this situation for over two years now.
After writing the mortgage company for 2 years, sending them reams of data about their payment history, going to court, and basically bitching up a storm and getting really angry at the system for its perceived injustices, she and her husband sat down and decided to look at the situation without prejudice, because they were in real danger of losing their house and having to move in with relatives. It was their contention that they owed the company no money other than the monthly mortgage payment, which was being paid every month by social services. The mortgage company asserted that the homeowners owed several thousand pounds in late fees and other charges.
Amanda and Greg went through all of the documents and looked at the entire history of their dealings with the company. After a totally honest and direct look at the facts – something that was VERY difficult to do because of the emotions surrounding the events – Amanda and Greg concluded that yes, maybe they really might owe the company some money. They looked at each other and faced the fact that they may in fact lose their house. At first this was very hard to accept, but since they had fully confronted the situation and the emotions and the resistance surrounding it, they were able – for the first time – to feel calm about having to leave, and began to draw up contingency plans.
Then something interesting happened. A short while after their sit-down, Amanda found herself at the computer, writing a letter to the company. She told me that she hardly knew what she was typing; it was as if someone else was dictating and she was just hitting the keyboard. Eight pages later, she had finished. She then enclosed a bill for 500 pounds, along with the letter, to the company for “wasting our time.” The company immediately sent a form letter back, once again demanding payment of fees and charges, so Amanda re-sent the letter with another $500 pound “wasting my time” invoice. The invoice was a little joke from her to the mortgage company.
Amazingly, after a delay of several weeks, the company sent her a letter back with a “valued customer appreciation” check, and ended the letter by saying that the matter was now concluded. No fees owed!
The check wasn’t for 500 pounds. A lot less, but Amanda was amazed, because the situation had resolved itself in their favor with almost no effort!
Amanda explained it to me by saying that they had done two things:
1) Fully and completely looked at the situation – a very complex legal situation with thousands of pounds involved — without prejudice, rancor, or resistance. They just laid it all out and observed every aspect of it.
2) They accepted the situation for what it was, and felt good about whatever might happen, even if they had to lose the house.
After that Amanda was inspired to write the letter that resolved the confrontation.
Amanda was first inspired by an acceptance meditation. She was able to release a little of her resistance and anger toward the mortgage company before the sit-down with Greg, which then allowed her to take a detailed look at all of the documentation relating to it. Very often when you are stuck in something uncomfortable, looking at it is the very last thing you want to do. It’s too difficult!
The laws of the universe respond when you actually change your vibration. If you don’t really change, you keep getting the same old stuff, with a little different twist each time, but nothing gets resolved. That’s what had happened for two years as Amanda went round and round with the mortgage company. The dominant vibration in Amanda was one of anger, which led to confrontation.
Accepting the situation for exactly what it was allowed Amanda to actually change her vibe. She told me the key moment was when she and Greg acknowledged that they might in fact actually owe the company some money. Both she and Greg were able to step back, out of their limited viewpoint, and actually see the situation from the company’s side as well. That led to an acceptance which then blew out all of their resistance and allowed them to accelerate up the emotional/vibrational scale. Then she felt that action was appropriate, and she acted. Amanda was very insistent on acting, rather than just meditating. “It’s really important to get into action, not just sit around and hope something will happen,” she said. “I wanted to let the universe take care of it, because we didn’t know what to do, but when I felt inspired to write that letter and send it off, I did.”
“Changing your vibration” is the sort of thing Esther Hicks talks about all the time in her lectures, but it goes over the head of a lot of people. When people first hear about the Law of Attraction, they want to say an affirmation or do a visualization and have everything immediately resolve. But that’s not how it works! To change your vibe you have to first accept where you are before you can make any progress. Amanda found that out with truly amazing results.
If you want to hear the interview with Amanda, you can go to the Interview With Spirit show and listen to show for August 18, 2010. Here’s the link: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/interviewwithspirit
Confronting something for what it is requires integrity. Integrity is wholeness, which is precisely what “looking at the unwanted situation for what it really is” means! You are looking at the WHOLE situation, not just holding your viewpoint and insisting upon it. When Amanda was able to step out of the situation to see BOTH sides (even the perspective of the evil mortgage company), she was able to honestly look at it, and then accept it.
I once heard a statement from Carolyn Myss, a medical intuitive, to the effect that she didn’t really run her life; she simply followed the hunches and inspiration from her Higher Self. I understand what that means now, and so does Amanda. She told me that a “higher” power wrote the letter for her. Apparently, fully accepting the situation with the mortgage company lowered all resistance and she was able to hear her Higher Self and act.
The second situation involved Amanda’s dog, who developed a nasty tumor. To remove it would cost 200 pounds (about $350), and she didn’t have the money. She wanted to go to the bank, but felt hopeless because her financial situation was not good, and banks are being very selective about who they lend to these days.
But the tumor kept getting bigger and bigger, and she realized she HAD to do something. So she decided, “what the hell, what’s the worst thing that can happen? They’ll say no and I won’t be any worse off.” Again, events forced her to the wall and she sucked it up and went to the bank. To her surprise, the loan officer smiled and said, “Sure, you can have the money.”
Well, Amanda went home feeling pretty good about the situation, and herself, even though there would now be an extra bill. Two in a row! she thought. This acceptance thing seemed to be working pretty well!
Then an amazing thing happened. That day, the dog kept scratching the tumor and it opened up. Amanda opened the door to let the dog outside, and it bumped up against the door frame. A short time later Amanda looked out and saw the dog licking the area where the tumor had been. It was gone! All that was left was a tiny red spot.
Amanda took the dog back to the vet, who said that it was very unusual for such growths to cleanly fall off. The vet gave her some topical crème to put on the dog’s skin and charged her 30 pounds for the visit.
So the universe came up with an even better solution, for now she didn’t have to go to the bank!
These two events are a great example of the power of acceptance, because they are not trivial. In fact, both of them were quite serious. Simply confronting the situation and accepting it led to two magical solutions, one in which they received money and a resolution to the housing problem, and another in which a small amount of money needed to be paid.
I think that’s pretty impressive. Well done Amanda!

An Information System is a coherent collection of data that can be stored, processed, and retrieved, to supply useful content to human beings. Most information these days is stored in databases, which are organized sets of data that can rapidly be input, calculated upon, and output. Information systems are used in business, to help process customer orders, organize inventory, calculate payroll, etc. Banks and securities firms are completely dependent on information systems to store customer account records and to process financial transactions. Information systems are an integral part of modern life.
But they are much more basic and fundamental even than that!
The universe itself is an information system; more precisely, it is a vibrational information system.
Science tells us that all physical objects, and energy, is made up of atoms. Atoms are composed of a tiny nucleus surrounded by an electron cloud. Electrons oscillate madly around the nucleus. The atom is 99% space, with electrons moving around in it. A vibration is essentially the periodic or aperiodic movement of something in space. Therefore, the atom is basically a little vibration. But it is also a unit of information!
String theory tells us that the electrons, protons, and neutrons of the atom are themselves composed of tiny, vibrating filaments that physicists have named "strings." So the essence of matter and energy is vibration.
For example, what information does this atom transmit?
It says, "I am the element called hydrogen."
This atom says, "I am oxygen."
These two units of vibrational information can combine to form probably the most important substance on earth: H2O (water).
The Periodic Table of Elements contains the basic building blocks for all physical objects and energies in the material world; that is why they are called elements. The definition of element is "a fundamental, essential, or irreducible constituent of a composite entity," and it comes from the Latin word elementum, which means "first principle." All of these elements are units of vibrational information, and all physical objects are a combination of one or more of these basic elements.
Therefore, the physical objects and energies that we see around us are actually vibrational information systems, just as the water molecule is an information system combining the two elements "hydrogen" and "oxygen." The important point here is that information systems are programmable!
Why does the hydrogen atom combine with the oxygen atom? Because they have been programmed to do so! You can believe the materialists if you want, who say that the universe is simply a random collection of energies that "just happened" to come together in the incredibly complex forms we observe in nature. But the existence of the universe itself, with its elegant physical laws, and the planet earth, with its millions of species and ecosystems that work together harmoniously, is the most obvious argument that life, and the physical world, is NOT random. No, the information systems for physical processes exist above the physical level, but this is something that a materialist can never understand, unless he or she experiences an increase in awareness.
When you take a step forward from the limited perception of the five physical senses, you begin to understand that the aggregations of physical matter, and the physical laws that allow them to interact, must be programmed from an information system, just as a computer program creates a multimedia presentation that can entertain and inform.
Water is a programmed information system that creates something vital to all life on planet earth.
You have probably heard of the work of the Japanese researcher who works with water, Dr. Masaru Emoto. Dr. Emoto performed experiments that showed how water crystals react to conscious intent. In other words, thought and intent re-programmed the physical structure of the water crystals. Again, to a materialist, such things are incomprehensible, and it is really funny to read the comments on his work from skeptics and other dead-heads who just don't get it!
ALL physical collections of matter and energy react to conscious intent! Our world is programmable, and we are the programmers. The problem is, we have not yet recognized this.
The reality we live in is, firstly, an interpreted reality. By that I mean that all perception is an interfacing of vibrations. The atom is a tiny little vibration, and all matter and energy is composed of atoms, and the receptor cells of the human body are atomic as well. So what we perceive as solid and real is nothing more than the interaction of vibrational information. For details on how this works, see my movie "The Vibrational Universe," at http://www.sunrise-production.org.
If we look at the cells and organs of our bodies, and the universe around us, simply as collections of information, we can see how any human being can be a programmer of their life!
Our bodies are information systems: coherent, and programmable, collections of vibration. The liver, for example, is programmed to eliminate waste; the heart is programmed to pump blood, the lungs to receive oxygen and release carbon dioxide, etc. The more you know about your body's information systems, the better you will be at programming it.
The universe is vibrational and informational, because a vibration is a unit of information. The two things are interchangeable, just as matter and energy are interchangeable, as Einstein showed us. A vibration is dynamic, constantly changing, and evolving. When you program a computer, for example, you give it a set of instructions that cause it to do something. The instructions to the computer are little packets of vibration; electronic impulses. What the computer outputs are also little packets of vibration that you see on your monitor and through your speakers. When you change the computer program, what is displayed also changes.
How do these vibrational information systems work? Well, we can get an idea by examining a hologram.
In 1947 a Hungarian scientist, Dennis Gabor, developed the theory of holography, for which he won the Nobel Prize in 1971. A hologram is made by shining a beam of light directly onto a light-sensitive plate (the reference beam), and then combining it with another beam of light that is redirected from a series of mirrors onto the object (the object beam), and back to the recording plate. The two light beams create an interference pattern, which is then recorded on a light sensitive plate. The interference pattern is just a vibrational intermingling of two sets of waveforms. When light is shined onto the plate, a vivid, 3 dimensional object results.
A hologram has the amazing property that even a tiny section of it contains all of the information for the entire hologram. In other words, the hologram has the entire information system for the complete image programmed into every piece of it. "Hologram" is just a fancy word that means "vibrational information system."
simple holographic setup
(simple 2 dimensional, flat, holographic setup)
If you are interested, you can look up the Holographic Principle. Introduced by physicist Gerardus t'Hooft in 1993, it states that the physics of any system can be described on the boundary of that system. In other words, the physics (the reality) of a 3 dimensional system can be described in two dimensions. So a holographic information system light-imprinted upon a flat, 2 dimensional plate can produce the 3 dimensional object perfectly.
What if the universe itself is holographic? This is the question Michael Talbot asked in his famous book, "The Holographic Universe." If a tiny little flat, 2 dimensional light sensitive plate can produce a startlingly real 3 dimensional image, imagine what a spherical hologram that is 13.5 billion light years in diameter (the size of the universe) could do!
My guidance tells me that such a gigantic spherical hologram would create a reality that is so persuasively real in every aspect, that it would essentially overwhelm the senses and appear to be the only possible reality. It would create a reality so convincing that spiritual beings could even become materialists, and actually believe nonsense like "you only go around once in life!" That is the purpose, apparently, of a physical existence. It provides such an incredibly sophisticated gameboard that it excludes all other realities, and provides an opportunity for an immortal being to become finite and vulnerable. It provides an opportunity to "test" yourself in an infinite variety of situations, for there are an infinite number of ways to program a physical universe. That is the power of information systems! My guidance tells me that there are literally trillions of different universes out there, each as real as the one we live in.
Such a complex spherical hologram could also record every single impression by every single physical being that existed within it. It could contain emotions, feelings, thoughts, and trillions of other perceptics (Akashic Records).
The more sophisticated a hologram is, the more real and solid it becomes. If you imagine the universe as a gigantic 3 dimensional hologram, you can imagine how real it could be if you immersed yourself directly inside it, which is precisely what we do when we incarnate into our physical bodies.
The physical body is the computer that interprets the vibrational content of the universe, and displays it for us to interact with. In other words, our receptor cells are programmed to recognize a certain (very small) bandwidth of vibration, and make that convincingly real to us. The only thing we have to remember is that we, as spiritual beings, are the programmers. This is easy to forget in a physical incarnation that is so convincing.
(This is what is meant when people say "the universe is illusion." What they mean is that we only see an interpreted, and infinitesimal slice, of the universal bandwidth of vibration. Of course what we experience is not illusion at all; but it IS illusory to say that what we can observe with the five human senses, and what we can infer from scientific instruments, is the only reality).
Here's the point: all physical systems are information systems and have programming that determines how the physical processes work, and the form of the component objects. The earth is an information system, your life is also an information system. And the programming for these systems is alterable!
Obviously, a program is no good if it just does the same thing over and over. Who wants to go back to DOS 6.0? And a program is also no good if the program itself is not accessible.
Where does the programming for these information systems exist?
I'm told that it exists OUTSIDE the perception of the five human senses, just like the programming for the computer exists outside the perception of the computer user, in an electronic, vibrational matrix inside the computer's central processing unit. All the user knows is the he or she turns the thing on, and it works. This programming is beyond the level of physical matter and is accessible by a spiritual being, even while incarnated in a physical body. This is what people like Esther Hicks have been trying to say for decades.
All scientific discoveries come from individuals, and in some sort of intuitive leap, or hunch. No skeptic or committee ever invented anything! That's because the skeptic is so busy defending the status quo that he is unable to be original, and the committee is busy shooting down brilliant ideas, in order to conform to the do-able, which is, essentially, the lowest common denominator of the collective. (If you've ever been on a committee, you know exactly what I'm talking about. And by the way, politics mostly operates by committee. Is it any wonder that politics is so petty, tawdry, and inefficient?)
Discovery always originates at the level of thought, and is translated to the physical. The programming level for physical information systems exists in the subtle realm of thought. We see this in everyday life. You make a decision to change your life, you act in different ways, you get different manifestations. But it's much more powerful that that!
A strong enough and coherent enough thought form, or thought template, can actually alter physical structure. If you understand that physical reality is malleable and is essentially information, this makes sense. But if you are a materialist, you think that reality is described only in the objects you see and feel. But that is a primitive and childish viewpoint. When you want to build a house you first design a blueprint. That blueprint is the information system that describes the physical house. Alteration of the blueprint results in alteration of the physical description of the house. Here we get back to the Holographic Principle again.
The 2 dimensional blueprint controls the 3 dimensional structure called "house." In other words, you could say quite accurately that the true reality of your house lies not in the physical building materials of foundation, walls, and roof, but in the blueprint itself. When you need to make changes to your house, you have to consult the blueprint first!
Humanity has control over its information systems.
These information systems exist outside the realm of the five physical senses, and create the physical blueprints for our interpreted reality. The double helix of DNA, for example, is just the physical representation of something vastly more complex and beautiful. The "activation" of DNA is the perception of these etheric blueprints, and the reprogramming of them through conscious intent, which results in healing (and new abilities that we didn't even know we have).
The universe and everything in it is, essentially, programmable, vibrational information.
That's all it is!
When humanity really begins to understand this idea, we will be able to change our lives, and the face of our planet, very rapidly.
We already understand information systems very well, so why does humanity continue to fight each other and pollute the planet? Why does 90% of human savings go to finance war and polluting fossil fuels, when we are already sitting on clean energy technology?
Well, people like David Icke (see the link to an excellent interview with Icke below) claims that extraterrestrials have modified the vibrational structure around planet earth, to keep humanity within a lower vibrational range so that they can feed off our energy of anger, fear, and other lower emotions. This has always made some kind of sense to me, because I have never been able to figure out why our species has never been able to come together. In my participation in and observance of groups, I have noticed that when human beings organize into groups, there is some kind of psychic trigger that says, "contention." Where does this impulse come from?
Well, if there are "evil ETs" or "evil controllers" on the planet earth, they must be the physical representation of the information systems that humanity has constructed. Physical manifestation of anything CANNOT occur unless there is agreement and intent for it to occur. Therefore, anything unwanted on planet earth is being created in an information system. And to uncreate it, you do not fight it! You simply reprogram it! You change the content of the vibrational information system, and viola! Like a computer that has been reprogrammed, you get a new program that does new things.
Look at the universe like a gigantic computer.
The mnemonic instructions that make the computer go are just electronic impulses that are programmed into it, just like the elements of the Periodic Table that make up the universe are units of vibrational information. For the computer, this set of instructions is called an Operating System, or OS. Each computer has an OS, which provides a platform that allows computer programmers to write the programs like Word and Photoshop that we use to get work done.
Now here is the exciting part.
We can reprogram the Operating System that runs the computer. The operating system controls what types of programs you can run. If you try to run Adobe CS5 with the 3D enhanced Photoshop on a computer running the DOS 6.0, Operating System, nothing will happen.
If you try to run the program "clean, free energy" on a human operating system that cannot understand it, you will get nothing but inefficient and scarce energy, and pollution.
What the human race is engaged in right now is, literally, the reprogramming of humanity's operating system. That will allow us to move from the program Fossil Fuels 2436.6 to Clean Energy 1.0, and from War 4354262534.9 to Cooperation 1.0! And we are doing it by changing our thoughts and belief systems from the old OS to a new OS. Once we get a new OS, we can start writing new and better programs that will lift the earth, and humanity, from it's present stressed-out and confused state.
Solid reality is actually vibrational information.
That's all it is.
YOU CHANGE REALITY BY CHANGING THE INFORMATION SYSTEM. And that information system changes when you choose differently.
Information IS reality!!!
That is something human beings are discovering. To rid yourself of unwanted things, you simply reprogram the hologram within which you live. And you do that vibrationally, by deciding differently. By consciously creating a vision of exactly what you want for yourself and the world.
That's the message this month, and I hope that it inspires you to get beyond the idea that reality is solid and hard to change. This point of view can only be maintained if you do not understand your spiritual nature, and use only the five physical senses to validate your experiences.
The real action is always, and has always been, and will always be, at the level of consciousness, and thought, and intent, for this is the level on which the information systems that create the physical world reside.

enough to take everything you have."
Tyranny by Any Name is...Tyranny
In the United states today we operate under the political system called Statism. Statism has various offshoots, which are just different branches of collectivism, or socialism. Socialism is a great concept in theory – the idea that society is managed for the good of all citizens -- but in practice it leads to tyranny. That is because the human race has not advanced far enough in awareness to implement it properly.
For example, In the United States, we have two different kinds of socialism, each one represented by a different party.
The Republican party practices Corporate Socialism, and the Democratic Party practices Government Socialism.
Corporate Socialism has been tried before, in Nazi Germany and in Fascist Italy.
The Nazi Party was called the National Socialist German Workers' Party, or Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei. It was characterized by corporate control of the economy, and in the political arena, intimidation and thuggery, as all opposition was quickly extinguished. Mussolini was a socialist before founding his National Fascist Party, and his views were influenced by his father, who was a revolutionary socialist. Both Naziism and Fascism is Corporate Socialism.
Corporate Socialism is characterized by a government that deregulates the economy for the benefit of corporate structures that work with government. The government offers corporations tax breaks, and in general provides a free-for-all environment in which corporate power can grow unchecked, resulting in endemic corruption. Corporate Socialism in the United States got going well in 1980, after Ronald Reagan was elected. Reagan began the deregulation of the financial and corporate sectors, leading eventually to the financial crisis.
Government Socialism is modeled on the Leninist/Stalinist (Soviet) model, and is characterized by a complete takeover of the economy, and political life, by the government. Corporations and banks are nationalized, and control passes to a small elite at the top. This is what we are experiencing now with the Obama administration, which essentially nationalized the automobile industry, and has attempted to take over banking and insurance as well. (Actually it's a lot more complicated than that; on 5 / 10 / 2010 the market suddenly dropped almost 1,000 points. This was the bankers' response to Obama's proposed "break up the big banks bill," S.3217. Because 70% of all trading today on the NYSE is done via computer, it is possible for the big players to rapidly move the market up or down. Essentially the message to Congress was, "If you fuck with us we will destroy the market." Congress capitulated later in the day, and the markets rose. Here is a video that explains this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JvOigT7S3VA)
The draft Senate Bill (S. 3217, the financial regulatory reform legislation referenced above, also contains provisions that will allow the Treasury Dept to completely take over the financial sector. It establishes a hidden "Office of Financial Research" inside the Treasury Department, which will have almost unlimited financial powers to create new derivative assets and regulate all organizations that use the Federal Reserve dollar. Don't be fooled by the "political talk" about this bill. It runs over 1300 pages, and none of our Democrat or Republican representatives will read the entire bill before voting on it. This is another reason, in the next election, to dump these two parties. Our Democrat and Republican representatives do not read the legislation they vote on. Congress is, today, basically a rubber stamp for influential corporations, who write the legislation and pass it on to Congress. The two bailouts, TARP and TALF, were passed by Congress before they had even read the bills. These bills essentially created more fiat money and transferred it to the banks, inflating the currency and harming the economy. The Patriot Acts, which gutted our constitution and our Bill of Rights, were passed without our representatives even glancing at the legislation.
Really, there isn’t a lot of difference between these two kinds of Statism, as both wind up being a hierarchical, top-down arrangement of society and its resources, which benefit the very few at the expense of the rest. This setup, in the deluded minds of its proponents, is called "power." Interestingly enough, all people who follow this philosophy of phantom power believe in materialism, and deny spirituality. They are inverted, and they make life miserable for the rest of us.
The Democrat party and the Republican party have failed us, the voters.
It is time to send them on their way.
If we do not change the people who represent us, nothing will change.
Our country is bankrupt. That is a simple fact. Our national (government) debt is over 12 trillion. The Chinese own over $40 trillion of our securities (government debt and private, bank created securities) accumulated over decades. Our governmental unfunded liabilities (Medicare, social security) total around $50 trillion. Our balance of payment deficits are over $500 billion every year. And our banks are holding tens of trillions more in worthless derivative assets like CDO's and CDS's.
This is the real problem, friends. Our banks hold so much worthless paper(which they created) that the government simply doesn't have the money to bail them out. In order to keep the economy on track, the Fed has simply been printing money for the past two years. Check the St. Louis Fed's graph of the money supply at http://research.stlouisfed.org/fred2/series/BASE and you will see what I mean.
This is what happens when the people of a country let others manage their money! When a government begins printing or creating money like you see on the graph, hyperinflation is right around the corner. Either that, or a currency devaluation. Both solutions lead to the same thing: a loss of purchasing power and a lower standard of living. That is why it is vital to conduct an audit of the Federal Reserve, the nation's central bank, which controls the printing and the creation of money. We, the people, need to find out what these guys have been doing to our beloved dollar!
People, we can still get our country back. But in order to do so, we must abandon the two failed parties who have allowed this situation to occur over the past 50 years. If we do not, we only have ourselves to blame.
Both the Democrat party and the Republican party embrace a top-down philosophy which benefits a few at the expense of the rest of us. Call it whatever "ism" you want, it is rule by the few over the many – or tyranny.
It is time to re-establish true representative democracy and restore the Constitution.
We must clean out the deadwood and start over, by electing 3rd party candidates and by completely boycotting the corrupt Democrat and Republican parties.
We must also hold Congressional hearings on the activities of our Intelligence agencies. Do not believe for a moment that these agencies are defending us against terrorism. They are criminal organizations that hide under the National Security Act of 1947, et seq, and National Security Directives. For "national security" read "we are committing crimes and we don't want you to find out about them." These outfits are themselves terrorist organizations.
In order to restore our democracy we must get new blood in Congress, audit the Federal Reserve, and open the Pandora's Box of the so called "intelligence community" and expose this stinking filth to the light of day.
It is time for the American people to turn off "American Idol" and demand accountability from the people in Washington DC.

The fundamental dichotomy in human thought and philosophy is the inability of humanity to understand the existence of the spiritual. Philosophy, religion, and science peripherally recognize an underlying but invisible substrate that creates the material world we see around us; but because it cannot be detected scientifically it is considered a nice, woo-woo idea that has no validity.
Science, religion and philosophy have different names for this invisible substrate. Science calls it a quantum excitation or a quantum field, religion calls it Spirit or God, but whatever it is, it is the élan vital, the animating and creative force that holds the universe together and makes life worth living. Those who dismiss this higher reality, and rely only on the five human senses, are missing something quintessential: these people have developed dark philosophies such as determinism, behaviorism, and materialism, and have condemned themselves to a severely limited view of themselves. On our planet today we see the results of this limited perception: hierarchical societies that devote a large proportion of humanity's energy in funding a war machine that eats up human resources and stifles the human spirit.
The very act of observation itself must include not just the mere surface recognition of objects, but an attempt to penetrate to the underlying and unifying principle that accompanies all ordinary perception with the five human senses.
Science as it is practiced today is a mundane activity, limited to mere observing and cataloging the interactions of gross matter. The argument for this limited view of science is, however, all around us in the machines and electronic devices that have made out lives easier. But these devices have also dramatically increased the amount of stress we are under. There is something missing from Western society. We can all feel it as we rush through our day; and as stress builds up we often wish that we were on vacation and away from the hectic pace of everyday life.
I believe that Rudolf Steiner said it best when he said "these achievements [modern technology] have nothing to do with the true need of gaining insight into nature...To observe the processes of nature with a view to subjecting its forces to the service of technology is quite different from seeking profound insight into the order of nature with the help of these processes. True science is only present when the human spirit seeks satisfaction for its needs without an extraneous purpose."
Observation without an understanding of the human spirit is sterile, for matter and energy itself is a manifestation of an invisible, underlying and unifying principle that creates it. The physicist David Bohm says, "The classical idea of the separability of the world into distinct but interacting parts is no longer valid or relevant. Rather, we have to regard the universe as an undivided and unbroken whole. Division into particles, or into particles and fields, is only a crude abstraction and approximation. Thus, we come to an order that is radically different from that of Galileo and Newton -- the order of undivided wholeness." Bohm calls this invisible, undivided wholeness the Implicate Order, because it exists but is implied and not measurable.
This order of undivided wholeness is not observable with the five human senses, yet it is an inseparable part of reality itself! All observation that denies the existence of this underlying reality is not true observation, and will lead to incomplete and fragmented thinking. Look around planet earth and you see evidence of this fragmentation everywhere: in politics, in religion, and in science as well.
The implicate order is inseparable from the material. It is what spiritually aware persons call the "connection to the Higher Self," or "higher consciousness," or the "connection to source." It is present in everything we see and experience. The task of true observation is to be aware of the existence of something fundamentally whole and complete that is an integral part of everything we perceive. Denial of this higher reality leads to self-limitation, and deluded, dark philosophies like determinism, materialism, and behaviorism. These systems of thought are incomplete because they deny the existence of spirit; which is to say, they deny the existence of this fundamental wholeness and unity.
They inevitably lead to an inverted system of thought based upon the irrational memes of problem resolution through conflict and war, and hierarchical control from above. Such deluded philosophies are incapable of recognizing the inherent power of harmony, cooperation, and teamwork.
Recognition of the implicate order naturally gives a good feeling about ourselves and others, and recognizes the power and satisfaction of working together. It will naturally lead to a reorganization of society, the development of alternative energy and medicine, the cleanup of our environment, and prosperity for all.
The higher emotions are based in that invisible essence called Spirit, something that not only transcends the limitations of the five human senses, but the constriction of "modern" scientific observation and research as well. All scientific attempts to limit the human being to a mere collection of electromagnetic and electrochemical impulses have been failures (cognitive scientists cannot agree on a definition of the mind, or where it is, for example). Attempts to limit self-awareness to the brain have also been unsatisfactory. Those who have had a spiritual epiphany recognize, without being able to prove or even satisfactorily describe their experiences, that there is a part of themselves that is greater than the physical.
True observation requires an opening of the mind and heart to something that is such an integral part of existence itself that we become unaware of its existence. We become like the man trapped in the woods, who cannot see the forest for the trees.
The discovery of Self requires an understanding and a recognition of the human spirit. Without this understanding, life becomes trivial and mundane, like a vulgar "reality" TV show where the most tawdry day-to-day activities are glorified. Life, as my friend Dave says, should be the striving towards the highest expression of Self. This reaching toward higher expression places us in contact with the underlying wholeness represented by Bohm's implicate order.
Understanding the Self ultimately results in a FEELING of wholeness and personal power. This understanding comes forth as an insight; a cognition; a sudden awareness that the human being is something more than the obvious and commonplace evidence of the five human senses.
Reaching this new awareness cannot be taught.
There is no formula, or recipe, or equation that can ever represent it or describe it. People like Eckhart Tolle or Neale Donald Walch, or anyone who has had a near-death experience can't tell you how they graduated to a new level of awareness, because that level is invisible; it is implied, and is not yet manifest. But to deny its existence is to deny the Self, and to exist in a lower consciousness.
However, when one observes without preconceived notions, or ulterior motives, one has the possibility of perceiving not just at the mundane level of matter, but can also penetrate to the essence of the implicate order and reach a higher awareness.
How this is done is completely different for every individual. The secret to life is that each individual human being is an aspect of an invisible, unified consciousness; but the path to spiritual awareness and enlightenment while in the physical is unique to each individual. In other words, that cognition to higher awareness cannot be duplicated or formularized, simply because it is so profoundly personal. But that is what lifts it above the mundane and the commonplace; when one discovers one's personal truth it is a revelation! And that, dear ones, is something that all of us can look forward to in our lives.
Ultimately, the transition out of the body is a return to this higher awareness; but for many of us the task is to discover our personal path while we are still on earth. And the way to this new understanding is simplicity itself. Observation with the awareness that within all things we perceive is a fundamental and higher reality, can allow us to simply open ourselves up to the world at large, and thereby gain a powerful new understanding without having to work at it.
WAKE UP CALL
Why does the majority of human GDP go to fund an insane war machine?
Why does the financial system and the government reward parasites, criminals, and other lowlifes, and punish honest folk?
Why, when the total value of human output of goods and services has reached over 50 trillion dollars annually, are there hundreds of millions of people without enough food to eat?
Clearly, there is something seriously skewed with the way the human race uses its resources. And such an egregious and obvious distortion cannot be explained away by generalities like "it's just human nature," or "that's just the way things are." No my friends, when the ball breaks the window and leaves shattered glass inside the living room, it didn't just "happen." Somebody caused it.
It is time for the human race to understand the players behind the scenes.
I have studiously avoided presenting this material, for the simple reason that I don't believe in conspiracy theories, or in unfounded generalities. But the evidence is now overwhelming that the politicians and religious leaders that we see on the news do not hold the power. They are actors on the stage; reading their lines. The real power has been hidden and is now being exposed. So this week I have brought you some links to some very smart and courageous people who I believe have identified the real players.
The history of planet earth over the last millennium is the rise of powerful and cooperative families. These families, over the centuries, created wealth through cleverness and hard work. They banded together, intermarried, and now have control over banking, finance, and energy. Like any family, there are factions within the group that have different agendas. You will find many conspiracy theories on the internet that claim some sort of monolithic and all-powerful organization that is taking planet earth down the tubes; but this is very far from the truth. In fact, the good guys are winning! However, those of us in the United States are in the very center of the darkness, and things don't look so good from in here. Our intelligence community, senior levels of our Congress and Executive branch, and our Supreme Court have essentially been taken over by a nazi-style cabal that has taken our country away from the rule of law, the constitution, and the generous and compassionate principles upon which this country was founded. It has bankrupted our economy, stolen our wealth, wrecked the dollar, and stripped our manufacturing base. Nevertheless, progress is being made as the consciousness of humanity rises and the old paradigm of thought, which has been around for thousands of years, gradually evolves into a more cooperative pattern. 2012 is about the evolution of humanity, and NOT about destruction!
There are MAJOR changes upcoming within the next couple of years, as the financial system is purged of phony fiat-money and fraudulent derivatives, and a new gold-backed dollar is reestablished from Asian stores of gold; and as the gigantic, planetary endless-war killing machine is replaced with a revised political and economic system that will allow a cleanup of the planetary environment, the introduction of "free energy" technology that has been suppressed for decades, cooperation between world governments, a resolution of tensions between East and West, and a transformation of the oil, pharmaceutical, and banking cartels that have benefited a small elite and have stolen the productivity of humanity. There will be a shift in power from the United States and Western Europe to Asia, particularly China. Americans have been living beyond our means for decades, accepting HDTV's, automobiles, electronic products and appliances from Asia in exchange for US Treasury securities and other commercial paper that has become almost worthless, as our government continues its irresponsible deficit spending. Now the bill is coming due! The Chinese and the Japanese have trillions of dollars in "real" honest money generated through hard work, while the Western supply of money is mostly fraudulent, based on largely worthless Federal Reserve printing of phony derivatives and Treasury securities, used to finance wasteful spending and support the insane faction that has gained power through stealth, bribery, and corruption. If this is something you don't want to hear, or don't believe, then stop reading. I don't want to force my views on anyone else! But don't be shocked if, during the next couple of years, you hear about some pretty shocking things.
90% of all of the dollars in existence are not owned by Americans. These phony dollars will be purged from the system (this is occurring now as Asian, Arabic, and even South American nations will no longer accept Fed generated dollars in payment for oil and other commodities, nor Treasury securities to finance deficit spending; and new banking rules that require participating banks to honestly declare source of funds as regards securities, as well as all gains and losses). There will have to be a regime change in the United States, because the U.S. government has been taken over by a faction of endless-war crooks who have ripped-off the American people and bankrupted the country. Hopefully, a South African style Truth and Reconciliation Commission can be established to deal with the people who have perpetrated decades of madness, like the assassination of JFK, Malcolm X, Bobby Kennedy, Martin Luther King; the silencing and assassination of numerous inventors who have researched "free energy" and other clean and abundant energy technologies; and the fomenting of endless war. In this way we can avoid the executions and the killing that will only sink us back into the old paradigm. All of this is coming in the near future.
At any rate, both the Federal Reserve and the United States government are now hopelessly bankrupt, and are gradually being cut off in international finance and trade, until the cabal that runs the United States is ousted. Therefore, it will not be possible for the US to continue its vast military machine much longer, which is good for world peace. (If these statements seem preposterous, it is a measure of the media control that exists, especially within the US. To understand the statement that the US govt is nazi-like, simply read legislation passed since 9/11; legislation like the Patriot Acts, the Homegrown Terrorist Protection Act, the Real ID Act, and a host of others).
All of this information will be coming out within the next several years, and it will shock the largely brainwashed population of the United States. But the American people will ultimately accept these changes, because the new system will transform organizations now dedicated to war, release suppressed free energy technology, and clean up the polluted mess that we have made of planet earth. Americans are an ingenious people, and when the yoke of the criminal Washington D.C. corporation is removed, the US can get back to Constitutional government and Constitutional principles.
There are millions of geniuses on planet earth, and million of others who, in the coming years, will be given the opportunity to transform our planet. All of us will pitch in and I hope to see, in my lifetime (I am 58) a new paradigm of thought established on earth. It's a lot closer than we think.
I present to you a series of links to people I respect, who I believe have the right orientation to present information on what is going on "behind the scenes." Investigate and make up your own mind as to the validity of this information.
The first set of videos is from Nassim Haramein, called "Our True History – Pyramids and Sungods." These videos are an example that the history we have been told is not always factual, and that it is necessary to THINK and REASON in order to discover the truth.
The next link is a slideshow by Klaus Dona, on the hidden history of the human race. Fascinating artifacts that show the remnants of a worldwide, ancient civilization that existed on earth before the last ice age.
The next feature is a nine-part interview with Benjamin Fulford, formerly the Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief for Forbes magazine for 6 years, and is now an independent author, researcher, and journalist living in Japan. Fulford has a good heart and a positive orientation on where we are all going, and he is very enlightening on current events. In this 9 part interview with David Wilcock, Fulford sheds some light on the activities "behind the scenes."
Ben Fulford on the Jeff Rense show:
Every month Ben Fulford is interviewed by Jeff Rense. Here is the February 2010 interview, part 1. Look for the other 4 parts below the vid on You Tube. To listen to past or future interviews on You Tube, scroll down or google "Benjamin Fulford on Rense."

Are you interested in how the U.S financial crisis happened, and why our economy seems to be unraveling? Here is Dr. Peter Byrne, CEO of Overstock.com, with one of the best written and most incisive business blogs around. Voted best business blog in 2008: http://www.deepcapture.com
And then there is veteran British journalist, publisher, economic and intelligence analyst Christopher Story, publisher of International Currency Review and other respected publications, with his own sometimes acerbic takes. You can find his free archive here:
The latest posting from David Wilcock on current events:
There is lots of disinformation on the internet, and no one is 100% reliable. Some of this information may be upsetting, or seem wrong or kooky to you. Make up your own mind. Research. Above all, don't accept at face value the corporate controlled news, especially if you live in the United States.
The information above is intelligence information; it is the best guess by good hearted and well-connected people as to what is happening. Sometimes it is wrong, but it is always published in good faith. If this sort of info does not appeal to you, ignore it.
With intelligence information, there are two sure-fire ways to determine who is legit and who is a tool:
1) Do they tell you who they are and publish their coordinates? If so-called information providers or intelligence providers hide behind fake names and speak in generalities, very likely these sources are compromised.
2) How does the info make you feel? The scumbags always have a negative spin and make you feel powerless.
Things are not always as they seem. For example, you cannot always trust Wikipedia. And you cannot always trust Google. According to Fulford, Google messes with the search engine rankings for "controversial" pages and subjects, if these pages get too popular. From personal experience I know that Wikipedia is closely monitored by US intelligence agencies, and some of their pages on current events, politics, and finance are bogus. Wikipedia's founder, Jimbo Wales, used to be a short-seller on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, and had a soft-core porn site before founding Wikipedia. Again, make up your own mind.
If anything here churns your guts and makes you feel rotten, reject it!
The product of insane people is death, duplicity, obfuscation, lies, and chaos.
The product of well-intentioned and open-hearted persons is openness, integrity, cooperation, and the greater good.
As I have said repeatedly on the Interview With Spirit show, the population growth of humanity has had a secondary, but powerful effect: the interaction of human beings, in our billions, has created a sort of vibrational acceleration that is moving our species consciousness to a higher level. All of this is occurring in the higher and subtle realms of thought. That which has been hidden and uninspected within our consciousness is rising to the surface for clearing. That is why we have experienced so much turmoil within the past 100 years. Humanity is undergoing an extremely rapid clearing of old memes and thought forms, and we are evolving to a new paradigm of thought based more on cooperation than on conflict.
The universe and the galaxy is teeming with life. The human race is on a rapid upward evolutionary spiral and the next few years are going to be incredible!

Here is a blog post I copied word for word, from Jim Babka and Perry Willis of DownsizeDC.org.
In an era when the consciousness of humanity is rising, there are still some who choose to give up their power. Mostly this decision comes about from confusion. It is understandable that people would become confused with the overwhelming amount of data we all have to deal with, and with the country being run more and more by faceless corporations who seem to be motivated only by self-interest.
However, giving up your power to a government, or to a President, because he or she "knows what to do," must eventually lead to a breakdown of society. Only when citizens are educated and demand accountability from their representatives, can democracy flourish.
Here is what Babka and Willis say about the current situation:
If you asked us what surprises us most about the world we live in,
this would be high on the list . . .
* Statists control nearly everything
* Statist arguments dominate the national debate
* And yet, public opinion is still largely anti-Statist
Remember, Statism is the belief that . . .
* Your life needs to be engineered by a select group of people
(Congress, the President) from the top down
* People must be threatened with violence in order to make them
comply with these designs and dictates
* People who don't submit to these threats, should actually suffer
violence, in the form of imprisonment, the loss of property, and
possibly even death, depending on how much they resist
Social engineering, threats, and violence -- these are the sordid
reality behind all the euphemistic talk we hear from Statists about
things like compassion, order, safety, and security. Whenever someone
proposes the State must do something, we should ask . . .
* Will the proposal protect your freedom to live your life as you see
fit -- provided you don't impinge on the equal freedom of others to do
the same? Or . . .
* Will the proposal itself threaten you with violence, instead of
protecting you from it? Because . . .
If it protects your freedom, then it's in keeping with the idea of
Constitutional government and human liberty. If threatens you with
fines, imprisonment, etc., then you're talking about Statism.
Sadly, nearly everything discussed in the national debate is Statist.
Consider the current so-called healthcare bill. It's jam-packed with
threats of violence . . .
* You must have health insurance of a kind dictated by politicians
* If you don't buy health insurance then you'll be fined -- your hard
earned property will be stolen from you
* If you try to avoid the fine, then minions of the State will find
some way to take the money from you
* If you try to hide your money so that it can't be seized,
eventually men with guns will show up at your door to kidnap you, and
hold you in confinement
* If you try to resist this kidnapping then the men will draw their
guns, and if you continue to resist they will shoot you
This is the grim truth about the healthcare bill, and about nearly
everything our government now does. Statism equals violence. And yet.
Many people are blind to this reality. They cannot see the gun that's
implicit in what they advocate. And because they can't see the gun,
they can't see the inherent contradiction in their beliefs.
Threatening and initiating violence against others contradicts

The Statist is inherently hypocritical, wanting to be protected from
threats and violence when his own interests and beliefs are at stake,
but wanting to use threats and violence to impose his interests and
beliefs on others. This is not government, this is thuggery. Statist
And yet, everywhere we look we see this thuggery wrapped in the flag,
and marching to patriotic music. Statist thuggery is . . .

My comment: When President Obama was asked whether he and his family would sign up for the new heathcare plan that he himself is pushing, he avoided the question and would not answer it. Our Congressmen and women refuse to have anything to do with this healthcare legislation, and have their own separate, elitist plan (supported by your tax dollars, of course). The bill is opposed by a majority of American citizens.
So why, then, is is being so assiduously promoted? The Democratic Congress is using a procedural tactic to pass the Senate version of healthcare, without the House having to vote on it. This is unconstitutional.
As I said in a previous blog post, healthcare is essentially pharmaceutical drugs and invasive surgeries.
According to Dr. Barbara Starfield of the Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health, writing in JAMA (the Journal of the American Medical Association) 250,000 deaths per year are caused by medical errors, making this the third-largest cause of death in the U.S., following heart disease and cancer.
Think about what you are getting when you allow the government to run your lives.
More statism, more collectivism -- which just means, more rule from above by a small elite -- and less freedom.
Here is a perfect example of the sort of shenanigans that go on in Congress. During the recent health care debate, Senator Henry Reid used illegal parliamentary maneuvering to insert an illegal provision in the Senate Health care bill. This analysis is take directly from Christopher Story's latest blog post:
"ILLEGAL ANTI-REPEAL PROVISION BURIED INSIDE THE BILL
"Buried within the massive amendment to the Senate version of the Health Care legislation inserted by Senator Harry Reid of Nevada is an illegal clause which purports to bind Congress in the future from repealing Section 3403. In the United Kingdom, no House of Commons can bind its successor, and the same principle applies in the United States. The offending clause reads:
"‘It shall not be in order in the Senate or the House of Representatives to consider any bill, resolution, amendment or conference report that would repeal or otherwise change this subsection’.
"The subsection, starting on page 1,000 of this convoluted Talmudic legislation, concerns the regulatory power of the Independent Medicare Advisory Board (IMAB) to ‘reduce the per capita rate of growth of Medicare spending’.
"THIS IS THE MEASURE THAT PROSPECTIVELY CURBS OUTLAYS AS EXPLAINED ABOVE
This is the measure that controls, curbs and prospectively reduces the aggregate value of payouts for health care services to Americans, thereby, as explained above, also CURBING payouts by the insurers to pay for the Medicare expenditures incurred – and thereby, in turn again, ensuring that as much of the insurance money remains invested on Wall Street (proxy for the financial markets and system generally) in order to maximise the potential for such funds to be diverted into illicit trading platforms and operations under the radar, contrary to the Law .
"ANTI-REPEAL CLAUSE = CHANGE IN SENATE ‘PROCEDURES’, NOT IN SENATE RULES
In order to procure the ‘legality’ of the provision that this subsection cannot ever be repealed or changed in the future, the (Reid-controlled) Senate Parliamentarian has ruled, in a classic example of nefarious ‘loopholeism’, that the anti-repeal provision does not constitute a change of Senate RULES, but rather of Senate ‘procedures’.
"The reason for this is that for 200 years, changes in the Senate's standing rules have required approval by two-thirds of those voting – that is to say, 67 votes, rather than the 60 votes that Senator Reid’s amendment received.
"Thus Senator Harry Reid flouted two centuries of standing US Senate rules to pass a measure in the dead of night (which these Dark Forces always try to do) that no Senator has read, and part of which can never be changed (although the anti-repeal provision is illegal).
"Senator Reid is reported to have tossed aside an earlier assurance that Senators and the public would have 72 hours to read the language of his contributions to the Senate measure – because if the existence of this clause had been highlighted in time, there might have been an uproar.
"After approving the House of Representatives’ bill by 219 to 212 votes on Sunday 21st March 2010, the House adopted a package of changes to it by a vote of 220 to 211.
"The package, which was agreed to in negotiations between House and Senate Democrats and the White House, goes to the Senate probably this week."
Again, statism is synonymous with using the power of government to advance a political (or economic) agenda. When the citizens of a country allow their government to get too large, it stifles political freedom and the economy, aggrandizing more and more resources unto itself. The common denominator of impoverished Third World countries (and nations that don't work) is a very large central government relative to the private sector. This is precisely what has happened in the United States over the past 40 years. We, the people, have neglected to hold our elected representatives to Constitutional principles that guarantee freedom and which leads to a productive society. Instead, we have opted for a statist, centralized solution that, unfortunately, in hierarchical and allows the affairs of the nation to be more easily controlled for the benefit of a few special interests, and to the detriment of the majority.
