Joni Mitchell . . .must be considered a treasure and not just a national treasure of her native Canada but i think it’s fair to say of the world. She is indeed a Global Goddess. I can remember as a young teenager in the early 1970’s hearing her hit song Big Yellow Taxi all over the airwaves. Well they never stopped playing it, but back in the day I didn’t really get it. I mean it never really occurred to me just how wonderful Joni was – and of course will always be. She is a gift to the world. You can look at live recorded performances of Joni across the years and her amazing qualities of grace and sensitivity combined with sparkling brightness and musical genius highlight the simple and profound truth. It’s hard for us to imagine what a God or a Goddess might look like if rendered in the humble guise of a human being. Looking at Joni these days with the benefit of hindsight, it could easily be imagined that she is certainly a representative of the Goddess Saraswatti – the Goddess of The Arts, music, science (surely including healing) and knowledge, learning and literature. Meanwhile the message of Big Yellow Taxi is more relevant, poignant and urgent than ever. Here’s a peek at the Goddess and a celebration of a beautiful human being.

The CSIRO – Dealing in the GMO Black Arts

26 10 2012

Brought to You by The CSIRO

What I would like to be writing about is Yoga in the morning, the beauty of children’s smiles and the sacred gift of nature’s cathedrals. But instead I am having to write about hamfisted science at the CSIRO – Commonwealth Science and Industrial Research Organisation (Australia).

One of the truly disturbing things about this is that I grew up in this country to believe that we could trust CSIRO scientists to act ethically, knowledgeably and with a certain enlightened understanding in matters of scientific rigor and the public good. It now seems that such sentiments must be regarded with the same kind of scepticism once reserved for Santa Claus. It seems that CSIRO scientists have been dabbling in the black arts of genetic engineering in a way that would make even the evil empire of Monsanto blush. You see it seems that of late focus at CSIRO has been on seeking profitable outcomes rather than pursuing the public good. Where have we heard this before? And a conflict of interests of monstrous proportions has become as obvious as a pimp at a Love-in. Consider the latest genetic engineering nightmare being foisted on an unsuspecting and trusting public by those white coated gods to whom we have given, it would seem, far too much responsibility for our future.

According to Heidi Stevenson over at the Cancer is Curable Now blog, the CSIRO is developing a wheat species that is engineered to turn off genes permanently. After reading some of the straight science talk by likely experts in the field, Professor Jack Heinemann at the University of Canterbury’s Centre for Integrated Research in Biosafety and Professor Judy Carman of Flinders University,  the long and the short of it seems to be this.

Professor Jack Heinemannthe molecules created in this wheat, intended to silence wheat genes, can match human genes, and through ingestion, these molecules can enter human beings and potentially silence our genes. The findings are absolutely assured. There is no doubt that these matches exist.

The implications are clarified by Professor Judy Carman of Flinders University: If this silences the same gene in us that it silences in the wheat—well, children who are born with this enzyme not working tend to die by the age of about five.

It even gets worse because not only can this happen to YOU just from eating such GMO wheat  – a slow and horrible death from what we have been reading –  but furthermore you can and will pass on this terminated gene to your offspring should you ever be foolish enough or uninformed enough to have any. Once turned OFF this gene can’t be turned back ON. The result will be an enormous amount of disease, suffering and death. And it would be almost guaranteed to happen by stealth in such a way that Doctors would quite possible not even be able to readily diagnose the source of illness. Low energy, chronic fatigue, impaired immune functioning, large tumors. Sounds pretty normal for lots of people in our society doesn’t it? A new mystery illness that looks like all the rest. Great. Perhaps the intention is to honour Charles Darwin.

The good news for the rest of us is that this will tend to keep the population  down. The bad news is that these CSIRO wonks have could have come up with such a brilliant piece of manipulation of the genetic food code in the first place. We must ask ourselves how could this have been allowed to happen? And what next?  One is speechless at the breathtaking insanity of this whole ugly, hideous, horrible, nasty science-fuck. But it must be OK because it’s all in the name of making a dollar. Do you think? When will these psychopathic creeps learn? Well the answer is that they probably wont. Hence the need for our regulatory bodies to keep close watch. And here it seems is the real problem. They are all in bed together. We are forced therefore to invoke the F-word. Fascism. . . .by definition: The merger of corporate and state power. Be afraid.

Had some basic due diligence homework been done on this project it never would have reached the stage where Greenpeace activists felt it necessary to sneak into (one of) CSIRO’s GMO wheat test crops at night to destroy it.  Jesus and the saints are weeping. Maybe the eugenics conspiracy (depopulation by killing people through various means such as deadly GMO foods) theorists are right. Paranoia is one predictable and understandable response to this lunacy.  Where is Alan Jones when we need him? You can start shrieking like a lunatic running from a burning building now Alan (thanks to Mike Carton). If these pricks really wanted to make loads of money they should have gone into banking or perhaps arms dealing, – both of these things would be rated as more noble in tone than the efforts of our Frankenstein fellows back at the CSIRO lab.

But is is probably even more banal than the search for great riches on the part of the scientists. The need for public-private partnerships is a requirement built into the CSIRO Flagship research project guidelines. Sounds innocent enough, even noble, until you realize what that means. It’s called putting Dracula in charge of the blood bank. By now it may be starting to dawn on you that people are not going to be nice about it, not by a long shot. Perhaps the powers that be should consider increasing the amounts of flouride in the water, that should render us all stupid enough to not care. Despair, anger . . .rage. These are predictable responses. This still leaves the question of – what will be done about it?

Not happy Jan. Not happy CSIRO. Not happy Federal Government ministers who should have never allowed the situation to get to this stage. Socially and politically the responsibility is ultimately theirs. Who was supposed to be on watch? We need to find out and stop it from happening again.





The Cancer Cure That Could be Bad For You

17 10 2012

Jim Humble – saint or sinner?

Just received the latest CANCER Defeated! Newsletter.  If you’re like me you find it impossible to read every newsletter or blog that you subscribe to. So I do what most people do.  If the subject line really grabs me I will read more.  So here’s the latest subject line from CANCER Defeated!

This cancer miracle may be a bad idea

So what did I do? Of course I read the email! Because if there’s a “miracle” cancer cure out there that is actually a BAD idea . . .then for sure I want to know what it is. And what is this so-called miracle cure that might actually be bad? Well it’s something I have known about for a while. It’s Jim Humble’s Miracle Mineral Supplement or as it is known MMS. And here’s what the CANCER Defeated! people did. They said that while the FDA has warned people about MMS being dangerous, that in fact people might want to check it out for themselves. In fact they were helpful enough to provide a link to a free chapter of Jim Humble’s book titled Breakthrough The Miracle Mineral Supplement of the 21st Century. And you can link to that chapter right here. Free Chapter of Breakthrough The Miracle Mineral Supplement.

I have noticed that the various alternative health commentators who have an exception with the FDA are very careful not to get on the wrong side of the law by saying the wrong thing. The fact is you could end up in Jail. This is the same Government agency that tried so hard to put Dr Burzynski in Jail for coming up with a safe, side-effect free medical intervention for cancer. . .that works remarkably well.

Dr Burzynski – genuine cancer cure or genuine fake?

And you have to ask yourself: if they tried to put someone in jail for finding a medical cure for cancer that is quite safe and side-effect free, well . . . how can you trust them when they tell you to flush your Miracle Mineral Supplement down the toilet?

It may seem extraordinarily harsh to label the organisation that is empowered to regulate Food and Drugs in the United States of America as crypto fascist, but according to the most well accepted definition of fascism it is: the merger of corporate and state power.  Crypto means: having a secret allegiance. It seems the FDA may have been/ may still be, representing the commercial interests of certain large pharmaceutical companies (Big Pharma) instead of focusing on the actual good of the people. The problem with this if true is that it is not only deeply immoral but I can only hazard a guess, probably illegal. The fact is that if true, this could well mean that countless hundreds of thousands of Americans have suffered the horrors of various types of chemotherapy for the sake of the profits Big pharma. And there’s your crypto fascism right there.

And now the question is what are you going to do about it? What are we going to do about it? You see I live in a country – Australia – that pretty much just rubber stamps whatever lies the pharmaceutical companies, not to mention the likes of Genetic engineering cowboys such as Monsanto, want them to rubber stamp. One of our former prime Ministers – Malcolm Fraser – has said that Australia’s slavish following of American foreign policy is so obsequious that it is embarrassing. We just march off and fight every time Uncle Sam gives the nod. It is obscene when you think about it. America is fighting to keep the world safe for their brand of fascism? Why would anyone want to support that? Little wonder that certain folks are upset, regardless of how crude their methods of protest may be.

Now here’s what I do like about America. They stand – in the ideal sense – for freedom. It is in their genetics as much as is grubby materialism and killing your own grandmother for a buck. This ideal of freedom extends to religious as well as political freedom. So in all it’s multi-faceted complexity America still is ONE of the greatest countries on Earth. And what concerned people can do to heal the gaping wound of the American psyche now . . .is to become active, tell the truth about the shortcomings to yourself and others and to visualize, meditate and if you are so inclined pray for the positive way forward. The way of LOVE. These last three visualize, meditate and pray, will undoubtedly cause some to roll their eyes. And yet paradoxically from the quantumized perspective they may be counted as among the most effective cures for the post-post modern maladies of America. You better pray that is correct.





Growth – And What’s Wrong with The Media Anyway?

11 10 2012

Green Man – huge potential for growth

True Growth Potential Remains Unrecognized

Michael Feller (is that feller as in tree feller or feller as in bloke?) makes some dubious comments in the Sydney Morning Herald recently in an article that starts out appearing to condemn the God of Economic Growth and then makes a catastrophic error.

Media studies is required now more than ever. There are of course journalists and journalists and media outlets ditto. It must be remarked that while media organizations accept paid advertising their ability to tell it like it is will remain compromised. But this is based on a deeper issue; it is the issue of consciousness.

As far as reporting the truth and the ability to report it goes, it may be helpful to make the following observation.  People in a materialistic state of consciousness will perceive reality in a materialistic framework. And while the materialists often point to the evils perpetrated by the Churches and adherents down the centuries claiming this as proof that there is no spiritual existence, it’s a very weak argument and one which can be dismantled with some simple Aristotelian logic. You are encouraged to do the simple logical one-two-three step that disproves that fallacious argument. Onward.

To make it easy to grok the central premise we could go to Amit Goswami retired professor of physics from Berkeley California who will tell us that the basis of matter is not physical stuff at all. And being a professor of physics he might know a thing or three. Along the lines that this material world is the illusion and that the basis of matter is consciousness. So the materialists are the ones who have got it all wrong. Far from them having to suffer the smug attitudes of Greenies, vegetarians, bicycle riders, tree huggers, zen meditators and various transcendentalists, it is the sensitive spiritualists who have to suffer daily crucifixion by the dullards. Bless those bastards! You see the fact is that we get seemingly sane journalists like Michael Feller (is that feller as in tree feller or feller as in bloke?) making some fairly dubious comments in an article that starts out well enough and then makes a few catastrophic wrong turns.

Here’s what the Tree Feller says:

If a team of interplanetary anthropologists were to descend to earth in their spacecraft, they would notice that, like some distant tribe who worships a panther’s claw, a voodoo mask or the gnarled roots of an ancient tree, the human race has a strange fetish for growth.

Whereas past civilisations built their pyramids to gods who brought rain, or made the rivers flow, in ours we shop. The temple is the air-conditioned mall, where we occasionally have lunch on small rolls of tuna and rice – a tasty mix of the endangered and the engineered – before maxing out the credit card on clothes we don’t need to impress people we hate.  Michael Feller – Growth The False God of Economics SMH October 9, 2012

As the joke goes, like a hundred dead lawyers – it’s a good start.  But then a little further on his line of reasoning starts to go off the rails: he says . . . From the self-development books of Oprah and Tony Robbins to the world records in the Olympic Games, the act of standing still, or of tomorrow not being better than yesterday, is the ultimate sin. 

Yes Mr Feller I can see where you’re going and . . .that’s right. Evolution and growth, the act and art of becoming more of who you are is the goal. However. . . when you have a materialistic conception of reality then you will feel compelled to express this innate expression of self by laying waste to large tracts of nature, bullying, bulldozing and erecting . . .factories, shopping malls, skyscrapers. This is also know as conquering nature. In a word . . .rape.

And it is here that Mr Feller, having wandered somewhat from the path goes off course for a 4 wheel drive bush bash par excellence.

Yet economics beyond growth is exactly what we need if some kind of equilibrium is to be restored in the domestic and global economy. . . .we essentially need a no-growth environment.  OK . . . . i’m still istening

But how can such an agenda be pursued?  he asks wondering about the viability of both Capitalism and Socialism. And then he delivers the coup de grace.

Is deep ecology the answer? Not if you don’t wish to wear a hairshirt. Reducing our standard of living to the level of people Bono sings about is never going to be popular. Ditto for primitivism, survivalism and fundamentalist religion as well.

Now . . .i am sorry Mr Feller but this is where I deliver a rant about the crude ignorance of materialistic boof-heads. Go ahead and make up up your own rant . . .NOW!. But hey . . .Mr Feller, I understand that you tried, heroically to say some stuff about how we need to take a critical look at the God of Economic growth, except that you’ve stuffed it up brilliantly. Oh well, what the hell.

Here’s what I would suggest are the main points and how they can be clarified, improved upon and corrected.

1) Growth IS actually GOOD, just not the cancerous growth that is the product of Western style materialism. But . . . you can still have environmentally sensitive and sustainable economic growth, it just needs to be sensitive and sustainable.

2) Growth needs to be re-defined as that which has an inherent and essential metaphysical character. From this point of view we can learn how to hug trees without feeling the need to wear a hair shirt or move to Bolivia. Unless you really want to. Deep Ecology, yes we need more of that. No hair shirt required, just a little emotional honesty.

3) Once we learn how to re-define growth from the point of view of material reality being based on consciousness (a la the quantum science of Amit Goswami et al) all of the elegant, congruent and harmonious perspectives of how we can profitably align with the universe (in the deeper as well as immediate sense) will become much clearer much more easily. This will occur through self-organisation of the geometry of the mind. When your vibratory rate of consciousness changes so will your world-view – through self organizing mental phenomenon. Oh yes this might just be too revolutionary for the pop-up toaster brigade. But that’s why we have laws in society. They are not there just to help the rich get richer. No! They are there to protect the sacred balance of life from boof-heads, dickheads and various wilderbeast.

4) Ultimately it’s a choice. It’s a choice between Love and Hate, between contracting with fear or expanding with love. It’s a choice between dominating the world and nature and having dominion in nature – which will require awakened consciousness. It’s a choice . . .and there ain’t nuthin wrong with Deep Ecology. Think about that next time you’re being hailed on, stormed at, flooded, burnt, singed and shrieked at in the feedback loop of infinity. Nature is very kind, kinder than you may imagine, and She is waiting for you to awaken to this very potent fact. Quantum Out.





Celebrate Global Birth Day on December 22

9 10 2012

We are moving with the Earth – It’s a SHIFT

Celebrate the SHIFT in 21012 with the Shift Network and Global Birth Day 2012

My friend Jan sent me the link to Birth 2012. Thanks Jan. Looks totally amazing and just the sort of thing we need more of right about now. Empowered, positive future directions and possibilities. The people behind this understand that we need to be seeing the positive futures and start declaring empowered belief in letting go of the old paradigm. They are people like Neale Donald Walsch, Jack Canfield, Lyn Twist, Barbara Marx Hubbard and  . . . no less than the great Ervin Laszlo himself. Quite a coup in the realms of the New Age spruikers you can be quite sure. The presence of Laszlo just assures any who may be in doubt that this is a high quality initiative with all the right people involved. Global Birth Day 2012 – the people and their website and YOU – is going to be participating, contributing in a meaningful way to the SHIFT that is needed and that is coming.  Destined to succeed. The future is for those who embrace it. Check it out now and fly forward into the miraculous. This is an application of positive quantum consciousness There’s a few points below (from their website also linked below) on just some of the stuff you can do with this initiative. Promo video below. I am excited by this and well . . .honestly, if you have a pulse you will be too. Everything is below. See you in Heaven.

  • become a volunteer
  • get trained
  • Join the movement
  • Start a hub
  • More

Now listen. No cynicism. Just get your act together and your engaged mind over to their website. Get involved . . .get evolved. This is serious mama. And a lot of fun.





The Facebook Frenzy of Furious Friending

27 08 2012

The Future – Complex and Hard to Dust

The Future Beckons Like Never Before

Why am I sooo old skool? I wanted to send emails to some people i met at a festival recently and many protested that they only use Facebook now. I don’t check my emails was the often repeated mantra. OK . . . Apparently email is just so passe. So I thought I would ask the guy at the Next Byte Apple shop in Brisbane if I am off the pace with the Facebook thing. His response? Facebook is Old School . . .email is the go again. OK . . .so in other words email is not old fashioned. Well . . .HONESTLY! how could it be? It was only invented yesterday and become within the first ten years of its ubiquity – say from 1995 to 2005 – THE indispensable communications technology of the digital age. It’s right up there with mobile computing. Huh! So where the F&%k are we NOW then? The fact is that no one really knows. But here’s what’s going on according to Dr Quantum.

The rate of change is now so rapid that the state of technology is actually in a state of fluidic flux. Technologists have itchy fingers on hair triggers. This is a breeding ground for the emergence of things that will amaze YOU. The Facebook frenzy of furious friending may well be the online experience du jour for some people. While for others it may be the deeper and more detailed content that email allows. The fact is that the gene codes for its environment. In other words if you meet folks who are into Facebook, then getting into Facebook with them may be a great thing to do. On the other hand if you’re hanging out with a group of History Professors, they may prefer email, or even letters written on parchment in copperplate with a Gooses quill, while a group of truck drivers prefer the CB radio. Context then is everything and flexibility is key.

If you’re like me and remember being sent home from school to watch the Moon landing on black and white TV, (Neil Armstrong RIP) then you may find all the communications technology just a tad overwhelming. Ganglions are twitching so rapidly that many have turned to valium or even in desperation to meditation. Shock horror gasp. There is a storm of static raging in the ethers and the blasts of noise in the multiple media rooms that are people’s lounge rooms, bedrooms, cars, bars and handbags  . . . and soon no doubt in the brain implants of what? . . .12 year olds – ARE DEAFENING. Something’s going on here that is wildly unpredictable. The upside will be truly amazing. I am holding for that upside. There are already enough negatives floating around that speculating on the dystopia is wholly meaningless at this point. The future is having a party and we’re all invited. Don’t forget to R.S.V.P. it will be a surprise. Promise.
