The Forces Shaping Our World

If you have not been getting depressed lately then maybe you just have not been paying attention. There is so much to be depressed about. In which case you might feel the seductive downward pull of melancholy. Perhaps there is a mysterious feeling of sadness lurking out in the wilderness stalking you, waiting . . .ready to claim you at a moments notice. Lurking . . .waiting. Till finally, like the evil SLIME in a B-grade movie it drags you down into subterranean depths, into the underworld. Perhaps even into Neptune’s world, into the subaquatic realm of deep dark and horrible feelings. And maybe . . . maybe, that’s not such a bad thing after all because let’s face it: there is actually plenty to be depressed about. And a warning: this is not one of those pieces of propaganda you see plastered all over the toilets of the Western World or bobbing up on the telly giving you a hotline number to call if you feel depressed. Managing depression has it’s place, but this is not one of those places. And you can be assured of this: There is HOPE. Real hope.

It will not here be proposed that the depressing reality is merely a chemical imbalance in the brain that some neurological doctor of reductionism can address by introducing a new poison into your brain. There now! It will all be better soon. Really? Honestly? Such bullshit.  It seems that so often the best that the medical fraternity aim for is that you will settle enough so that the problem goes away. As if we are three year old children that need to be put to bed, to be made unconscious. Thanks, but no thanks.

Ah yes feelings. Feelings! Those messy and fluid blobs of pulsating and very human energy that can not be forever avoided. Even if you want to. You may at times, find yourself standing on the metaphorical cliffs of your own isolation and loneliness and look into that sea of  seething and unregulated emotion wondering if your are brave enough to dip your toe in the water much less to jump in. You may at this point of contemplation feel an urge to run away. Or even take yourself off the game-board. Yes it certainly does happen. Or you may in defeat want to scurry back into the video game. Back to the television. Back to the bottle. Back to the fun-parlour. Back to the sex doll, or sex person. But as the Alcoholics Anonymous peeps will tell you, it will probably be necessary to hit rock bottom before you are ready to change.   But here’s the thing: it isn’t actually necessary to hit rock bottom. You can can simply decide to change. A radical proposition admittedly but there it is. So sue me. Yes, it can be done through choice. You can simply look at the “what-is” of your life and fess up. I did it! Just own the whole damn thing. And after making a thorough inventory of all the shit stuff . . .you then get to decide what you want to do about it.

Simply existing as an anaesthetized member of an unconscious civilization will not bring you any joy, or any real pleasure and certainly no fulfilment. Those things are all off the list. Surfing the mall for distractions will leave you feeling empty. Honestly . . .As you cruised past all those retail outlets offering all that cheap and even overpriced stuff, did you spare a thought for the people who exist in grinding poverty in slave-like conditions to bring you your pink satin panties? Your iPhone cover? Your new set of dumb-bells? Your cross-fit lycra gold lame tank top by Designer fitness pro Desmondo (made in Bangladesh)? Cheap t-Shirts. Overpriced stonewash jeans. A baby’s arm holding an apple. Now go be happy and shut the fuck up.

It’s no wonder you’re depressed. You should be. There is no simple way out. The truth is that us Westerners can be just as trapped as those in sweatshops. We’re all slaves it seems. And the competitive genes of the world’s poor are striving to get their kids into better education and higher paid jobs so that one day they can come to your country and take the best jobs from your kids. This is not a racist rant. And I wish it were’t true. But the way things are, it’s more than just a little bit true. We humans may have invented a bunch of technology that makes it ever easier to rape the Earth and produce ever more stuff, but it seems that sadly, we are a long way from being truly civilized.

So start crying. Really. If there IS something that can change the world it’s people getting in touch with their feelings. For it is not possible to engage with the authenticity we need to affect REAL change, from the place of narcissistic avoidance, perpetual numbness and proactive insanity. You just get more of the same. And you see , , ,this IS the Apocalypse. We are living through it. What does it mean? Apocalypse? Though I have noticed that most references to this truer definition have been whitewashed lately. Funny thing . . .  It means a lifting of the veil of secrecy and lies in a time of evil and corruption. Honestly. Seen the news lately? By that definition The Apocalypse is in full swing. And you need to make it your own. Start to get in touch with your own dark feelings, of sadness, of regrets or remorse. Spill the beans. About yourself. To YOURSELF. And when you’re done look out into the world and see with brutal clarity the BEAST of Revelations in fully exposed ugly mode. LOOK at the corruption of the world, and start weeping. You can change, but it’s not going to happen from the place of  hiding, of avoidance, of chosen ignorance and of endless addictions. Get clean. Get free. It’s time. Change.

You see, it’s not actually as bad as it seems and at the same time it’s far worse. That is the paradox of course. Far worse? Well . . .you may have been listening to all those crazy conspiracy theories on-line and in your face saying all this terrible stuff. Who do you believe? What is actually going on? If you need any inspiration you can do a search on Building 7. There’s a case in point. How . . .the fuck . . .did it fall down? This is the question that many highly qualified people are asking. No answers from the US administration. No secret societies have put up their hand to admit complicity. What a surprise. And while you’re at it remember the worlds of Adolph Hitler. In the game of mass psychology, control and dominance, it is useful to tell a BIG lie. A lie so monstrous that people would refuse to believe it. Building 7.

So how should you make your way in a world of greed, corruption, anxiety, depression, evil and lies? It’s a good question. First confront your own corruption and lack of moral fibre. Feel your feelings about how you FEEL about such a breach of trust with yourself. Own it. And take your time. Give yourself more than a minute on this. THEN .. .FORGIVE YOURSELF. And then decide that you want to change. It’s the authentic decision that will lead you out of the labrynth.

There is an old Chinese saying. You should not fear making slow progress. Fear only making no progress. Stagnation really is death. You need to get committed to your own LOVE actions. State of being. Open heart meditation. LOVE of God however you conceive him/her to be. Get committed to yourself. Doing the REAL thing may seem odd at first. It seems we have all become so comfortable with the LIE that to live in the truth can feel a bit odd once you decide to get to it. A bit weird. Hey! Just do it. You could make up a list of authentic actions, projects, stances, behaviours, consumer choices, habits. thought patterns, friends, groups . . .songs to sing . . . and just schedule in things on the list. There would be no room for anything else. Turn off the bloody telly! In fact there is a new word doing the rounds: Voluntourism. Look that one up. Getting un-fucked is a job of work to be sure. But as an evil communist dictator once said. The journey of a Thousand Miles begins with a single step. Hang on! That wasn’t an evil Communist dictator who said that. It was Lao Tsu – a wise man. Strange how these things go.

If you need any inspiration to more deeply feel and understand the global perspective there are few more enlightening or sober reflections available than from the lips of the President of Uruguay – Jose Mujica as he addresses the United Nations 2013

Political Power in the USA – The Corporatocracy

3 01 2013
Corporatocracy = fascism. Comprendez vous?

Corporatocracy = fascism. Comprendez vous?

The central criticism of the United States of America has for some time centred on the corrupting and hypocritical relationship between big business and the agencies of government. The powers that be in the U.S. have long trumpeted that the justification for both foreign and domestic policy is that they have been keeping the world safe for democracy. Clearly, such a claim is now seen to be as hollow as organised crime kingpins saying that they are keeping the world safe for business.  To be sure there would be truth in the statement . . .but would it be a true statement?

Respected Columbia University Economist Jeffrey Sachs in his book The Price of Civilization is now laying it on the line. He only stops short of using the F word. Fascism. It’s what Americans cannot bear to hear about themselves. The fact that they are currently doing a very good job of imitating being the greatest fascist power on earth. But let’s look at what Sachs does say.

According to Sachs America is caught in a vicious cycle; the cracked record of the corrupt American system.

“Corporate wealth translates into political power through campaign financing, corporate lobbying and the revolving door of jobs between government and industry; and political power translates into further wealth through tax cuts, deregulation and sweetheart contracts between government and industry”

 . . .in other words fascism.

Sachs point to four main sectors of US business that exemplify this vicious cycle and which underline the transformation of America into a Fascist society – he uses the phrase takeover by the corporatocracy which of course means exactly the same thing as fascism, just in more acceptable language. These four sectors are: 1) The military industrial complex 2) The Wall Street-Washington complex 3) The big-oil transport-military complex and 4) The (so-called) health-care industry. This last one some people might prefer to call the torturing people for profit in the name of medicine industry. Sounds pretty ugly? Well . . .what are you going to do about it?

What to do about this unholy mess? Well it may sound somewhat overly simplistic, however Dr Quantum would suggest that firstly having the awareness to be clear and honest about the current state of play is the first step forward. Closely followed by forgiveness and then last but certainly not least . . .having a regular schedule of co-creatively envisioning the positive, transformed, healthy future you wish to inhabit. This last part of the technique may well be derided by the intelligentsia – those materialistic, Marxist, intellectual atheists who are a feature of our institutions of higher learning. Many of these folks are enormously well intentioned individuals, in the same way that you will find people of noble sentiment in the Tea Party. But of course as it has been said – the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Quantum-wise the co-creatively envisioned and metaphysically projected positive future will do more to transform the world for the better than an endless stream of suicide bombers, torturing the projected “villains” – the enemy, and Uncle Sam’s drones and missiles and counter intelligence in the form of dis-information. The metaphysical approach may even be better than an endless stream of books – Gosh! However in the interests of sanity we must encourage education… regardless of how flawed the system may currently be.

Time to wake up.





If We Had An Empathic Connection With Nature

The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World

“I can think of no one else who could have conceived, let alone written a book of such penetrating brilliance”

These are the words that David Lorimer uses to conclude his review of Iain McGilchrist’s landmark work The Master and his Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World. If Lorimer’s praise is justified then here we have a rare and precious jewel in the treasury of wisdom for our times. There is intellectual muscle in the review as there must also be in the book, which is as yet unread by your correspondent. Not to worry, it has certainly gone to the top of the list of must reads. Clearly the book should become compulsory reading for all school graduates who are about to embark either on a career or off to study in one of the universities, which are clearly nothing of the sort. The point being if our universities really were offering and providing UNIVERSAL education as the term would suggest, then this book would not have been required in it’s current form. What they mostly provide is Marxism, materialism and a kind of hyper-masculinised intellectual bullying. 

McGilchrist himself provides arguments that are pleasingly nuanced, which you can prove for yourself by watching a short address he gives on the ideas in his book in the video embedded below. A sample of Lorimer’s review follows immediately below.

The divided brain of the title indicates that human beings have two distinctive takes on the world, mediated by the left and right hemispheres respectively. There are evolutionary reasons, explained in the book, for why this should be the case, right the way through the animal kingdom.

Iain explains that the right hemisphere gives the overall context, apprehends things as a whole and is able to take in the new. The proper cooperation of the hemispheres involves the grounding and integrating role of the right hemisphere, with detail added by the left hemisphere and returned to the right for a further integration, or, as the Germans put it, Aufhebung. This means that philosophy should begin and end in the right hemisphere rather than being a purely left hemisphere activity as it tends to be, especially in Oxford. A particularly striking chapter argues for the primacy of the right hemisphere, an idea which may initially come as a surprise to the reader, who is used to hearing the left brain referred to as the dominant hemisphere. The primacy of the right hemisphere implies the primacy of the whole over the part, of the implicit over the explicit and of experience over abstraction.

Here then is some support for the notion of what is being referred to within the walls of this blog as The Quantum Goddess  from the halls of higher learning and knowledge, which in this case is All Souls College Oxford. What is most interesting is that in the book: A particularly striking chapter argues for the primacy of the right hemisphere . . . Well alright then! That means on the one hand . . . from a theological perspective, we really, really . . . really need to start exploring the feminine divine, the goddess, the Divine Sophia. God as a Girl and not just as a boy – PRIMARILY. On the other hand of course there is the little matter of our hyper masculinised world-view which has been running us. What goes hand-in-hand with the super macho thing is OF COURSE misogyny – hatred of the feminine.

OF COURSE plenty of people in the real world are starting to try on the flowing garments of the Goddess for size. Just not it would seem, those in power. Those who are gaily legislating on the ongoing murder, death and destruction of large swathes of the environment for example. No cross-dressing in the halls of power amongst our male business, (fundamentalist) religious, and political leaders. The female pollies and business types can keep masquerading as women for the time being. Hmph!

Admittedly this is not as simplistic as  . . .Love is a warm puppy. Warm puppies have their place, and so does the salvaging of the way we currently conceive life, the universe and everything. As proclaimed on the banner of this blog We need a refreshing change. If anyone is looking for some powerful and resounding intellectualism to support the current imperative for The Great Turning . . .you will have it with  The Master and his Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World – in buckets full. Go on then and READ YOUR HEAD OFF. Or . . .you can even watch an introduction by Mr McGilchrist hisself on the computer telly below. Possibly the most significant bit of audio-visual so far . . .ever. Eh?!!! What’s that you say? This is like watching the Goddess deliver a lecture on the telly. You better watch it.





Quantum Goddess and The Rise of The Machines

18 07 2012

The Tree of Life

You are so much more than a computer

An article in the  Sydney Morning Herald today – Rise of The Machines July 18, 2012 – starts out straightforwardly enough. But reading further we see that the messenger is indeed a carrier of the very meme-virus he is warning us about. Reduction of  Humans to the level of Machines.

One of the founding engineers of Kaaza and Skype  Jaan Tallin is in Australia warning about the threat that computers pose to the future of humankind. While this is def scary it is certainly nothing new.  After all Sun Microsystems founder Bill Joy caused a storm of controversy when he said the same thing (and with a fair bit more of the desired complexity) in an article in Wired Magazine titled: Why The Future Doesn’t Need Us in April 2000.

So here’s the thing. Anyone who is watching the horizon of humanity’s venture into a future filled with all kinds of possibilities, would well and truly know by now that the Rise of The Machines is one of the biggest threats we face. The line is after all taken from the very popular Terminator series.  But Jaan Tallin gives himself away as a bit a machine head himself. Here’s a quote from the article

“Once you acknowledge that human brains are basically made of atoms and acknowledge that atoms are governed by simple laws of physics then there is no reasoning principle why computers couldn’t do anything that people are doing and we don’t really see any evidence that this is not the case,” said Tallinn.

Oh Boy. Here we go again. Well Mr Tallin, it seems that you have in one simple statement reduced the human-being to the machine-being. Admittedly when you say that human brains are basically made of atoms, this is ambiguous. But you have not suggested anywhere that human beings might have souls. The implication of your statement is rather to the contrary. And this you see is the real problem. For there is something that machines can’t do that human beings can do and that is to create miracles.

One of the greatest observers of the human condition in our written history – Rodolf Steiner – has advanced arguments since the early part of the 20th Century that there are three basic forces that shape human evolution. These are 1) The Christos 2) The Luciferic and 3) Ahrimanic (what we think of today as Satan). Contrary to the fundamentalist Christian doctrine the Luciferic and the Ahrimanic should not be  considered as merely evil per se. Apparently their influence represents a point of evolution at which humanity overcomes evil and transcends it. The “evil” forces have their part to play in human spiritual evolution.  The problem arises when they get out of balance in human affairs. As they are trying to do today.

According to the Steiner school of thought which supports an enlightened and loving type of Christian or Gnostic occultism called Anthroposophy . . .the Ahrimanic Forces are active wherever we see people attempting to reduce the human being to the level of atoms and nothing more. This point of view has more or less ruled most academic and scientific thought for the past hundred years or so. It has produced a level of thinking in the halls of our most learned establishments which is pretty much on track for the kind of future that Hitler had planned for human kind. Enslavement, suppression, destruction and human lives lacking in any kind of dignity. This is the materialist, reductionist path. Jaan Tallin is right to fear it. The irony is that he is now representing it with his statements.

This is the paradoxical nature of affairs that we have come to. And furthermore one risks ridicule from the powers that be when one speaks out for the truth that the Christos represents because many powerful and learned people presume to know that which they do not. This is defined as arrogance.

A brilliant book which was 20 years in the making, explains how our “left hemisphere” brain thinking has come to dominate the world-view of academics and scientists. You can read a coherent and concise description of this Quantum-Goddess work (better than a master-work!) on the following link.The book’s title is The Master and his Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World Thanks to and courtesy of The Scientific and Medical Network. And thanks to the comment by Jan (see Comments this post) – for sharing this information.

So where does the Quantum Goddess come into all of this? Well according to the Steiner school and others besides, modern day Christianity has more or less lost the feminine aspect of the Divine and consequently has more or less lost the plot. The feminine aspect is referred to as The Divine Sophia. Now, you don’t have to engage in Medieval Worship routines to honor and bring that energy into your life. What you CAN start doing is to move away from mechanistic and reductionist levels of thinking and behaviours. This enslaves the human spirit.

Start treating each person, plant and animal with respect, consideration and an in-the-moment consciousness of love that honors the intimacy of every moment. You see, machines are incapable of that. And when you honor the intimacy of every moment, you are by definition not being arrogant, you are now being truly humble, because you are seeing every moment as being the brand new moment of creation that it is. Here’s a nice little prayer to Sophia from Sophis Goddess of Wisdom by Katia Romanoff.

The Hail Sophia

Hail Sophia, filled with Light, the Christ is with thee. Blessed art thou among the Aeons and blessed is the liberator of thy Light, Jesus. Holy Sophia, Mother of all Gods, pray to the Light for us thy children, now and in the hour of our death, Amen.

You can say it without having to feel foolish and yes it will invoke the very electronic and sub-atomic presence of the Quantum Goddess. That’s because the magic is in YOU. Of course. The Atom Heart Mother is in you and you are in her. Change can happen instantly. Growth takes forever.  Re the video below . . I tried to find something worthwhile on the Divine Sophia on Youtube. Maybe i didn’t look hard enough. This is an excellent production that ties together Quantum Theory, Sacred Geometry and the very relevant information relating to the suppression of the feminine. A must see production for our times.





Fossil Fuels – Which One of The 7 Deadly Sins Is It?

18 05 2012

Environmental Disaster

Ongoing destruction of our environment

The seven deadly sins are also known as Capital Vices or Cardinal Sins. Which might leave you wondering which of the seven deadly sins does the ongoing destruction of our environment fit into? Here are the seven with definitions. Below is a short video from GetUp! about the ongoing threat to and destruction of the Great Barrier Reef. Let’s see if you can work it out.

1 Lust – excessive and insatiable desires

2) Gluttony – the over-indulgence or over-consumption of anything

3) Greed – also known as avarice or covetousness, is, like lust and gluttony, a sin of excess. However, greed (as seen by the church) is applied to a very excessive or rapacious desire and pursuit of wealth, status, and power.

4) Apathy – (AKA Acedia) is the neglect to take care of something that one should do.

5) Wrath – uncontrolled feelings of hatred and anger

6) Envy – an insatiable desire to deprive others

7) Vainglory – (Pride) narcissistic pride &  boastfulness





This is darE! The disturbing age of rEvolution!

Toying with the Revolution

darE! – stimulating and disturbing YOU NOW

The Zeitgeist is rEevolution > It’s really happening, and it’s happening NOW. This is such a massive . . .such a seismic shift as the cliche would have it, that sometimes it’s difficult to actually see it. The changes are indeed so deep, so tectonic that it may be you do not realize the seemingly stable structure you are on is moving rapidly till it bumps into another structure that exists on the same scale. That’s a BIG bump. Or maybe you do realize – It is stimulating, disturbing. The darE! often brings what the pundits are now calling Dis-continuous change. In other words it may be a kind of change that is unpredictable from the observable sequence of cause and effect in the immediate environment. This is the nature of the Disturbing Age of rEvolution – of darE!

We don’t have a Karl Marx behind this revolution. We have thousands of them. There is no Vladimir Lenin or Mao Tse Tung. That is so last century. Every gamer twitching on a playstation and forking instant noodles into themselves is a revolutionary.

“And the Lord Shall come as a thief in the night”

Gone . . .before you even knew she was there. To destroy everything. To change everything. To make everything new, beautiful, fresh. Time to refresh with a tang of zesty fresh Lime!

Plastic gamers / Pretty punk claimers / Ridiculous no-shamers / Intransigent strangers / Garbage electrodes recycling detritus / Flash alley fake tan / Take no prisoners / WE ARE THE REVOLUTION / we live in the darE!

darE! – stimulating and disturbing YOU NOW





Predictions of Revolution – Something’s Gotta Give

8 04 2012

A great little book picked up from the remaindered bin recently: The Greatest Day in History. The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. HOW THE GREAT WAR REALLY ENDED by Nicholas Best. It’s all about the events leading up to the signing of the Armistice ending World War I.

Did you know or had you forgotten that Germany very nearly fell to a Bolshevik revolution at the time? It was in the Modern History curriculum at high school, but were you paying attention. Hmmm? That one line in the text book was actually about something! As it was the cowardly Kaiser ran away to the Nederlands after causing enormous damage in Europe and a Republic was declared. He was widely regarded as something of a fecker for being such a warmongering self important ass hole. But that’s another story. Certain people wanted to blame the Jews as usual for the whole thing but it seems that, despite the rantings of a certain Herr Hitler it wasn’t actually the Jews at all but rather the war mongering ways of a certain warlord by the name of Kaiser Wilhelm and all those war mongering people who were swept up in his aura. History then repeated itself and Germany was defeated a 2nd time as clearly a second karmic lesson was required. And now look!

The thing is that Bolshevism was running pretty hot in the old Deutschland for the simple reason that they had run out of everything including food and had exhausted themselves to support the war effort. People started blaming capitalism. You put the two things together – a starving population and popular judgements against capitalism and hey presto! There’s your revolution right there. The only thing that’s missing these days is the mass starvation. Keep those McDonalds burgers coming to avoid a revolution. In the West . . .after all we’ve got the Golden Arches. Thank God eh?!!!

In the meanwhile some seditious material just to hand from the Agora Catalogue – apparently revolution is coming. Here’s what the latest edition is saying . . .

Dear Reader,

The man who predicted the Fall of Communism is now predicting the Fall of Capitalism…

He’s dined with the Rockefellers… He’s hung out with the Clinton’s… banged heads with the Beltway… and meddled with the media monopolies… He was the biggest name of the ’80s and ’90s investment newsletter world.

And in his first controversial video production in 17 years, he reveals news of a landmark development, which he believes will set off the most violent economic reversal in history, one that carries the power to bring down not just the American financial world, but the entire capitalist system (could this spell the end of McDonalds as we know it? – Ed)

It’s scary woo woo stuff to be sure. But someone thinks something’s about to happen. Here is the story. Claims of a coming revolution by James Dale Davidson. View Video Here





Making Capitalism Sustainable

1 04 2012

We will cross that bridge now that we've come to it

You need to start thinking about the long-term future

After the fall of the Soviet Union Capitalism was tucking its metaphorical thumbs into its  braces and strutting the dealer room floor feeling like a MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE once again. But then Capitalism did something really dumb. You could see capitalism stop right there in front of the amazed onlookers and light up a big Cuban cigar. Hmmm. Feels good to let the rich smoke curl around the mouth before exhalation triumphant. One problem. It set off the smoke alarms. The occupational health and safety wonks came out of the woodwork and they came out swinging. No smoking inside the building capitalism. Heath hazard! Fire hazard! Moral hazard! You need to start thinking about the long-term future

Tch Tch Tch Capitalism! What rock have you been hiding under? I’m afraid we’re going to have to give you a hefty fine as well as the largest community service order ever handed out in these courts. That would be the court of public opinion. And I have got to hand it to you Capitalism.  For the past fifty years you had us all enthralled. You had us all believing that maybe you were right. You had us believing that we just needed to get out of your way and let you run your operation unhampered by unnecessary restrictions. Free up the laws, lighten up the taxes and streamline opinions that could in any way hamper the free exercise of commercial trade . . .business. You had us believing that . . .whereas God may have been dead . . . Capitalism was very much alive and that Capitalism would save us. Blast of the heroic trumpets. And then . . .Then you lit that giant Cuban cigar and you blew the whole act. CAPITALISM you need to stop playing around with FASCISM and you need to start thinking about the long-term future 

SO here we are. The days of slash and burn are over. The world has turned. And  Capitalism! All I can say is – watch your ass. From now on you’re going to have to justify every outrageous expense claim. You’re going to have to give up the bottle and get clean and sober. Turning up drunk for work is not going to cut the mustard anymore. Shooting up Heroin in the toilets will no longer be tolerated. Yes . . .You need to kick all your addictive habits and get yourself to counseling. And as for that shocking smoking habit of yours! A million packs of coal a day! Just what are we going to do with you Capitalism? I feel kinda sorry for you actually. But they say addicts need tough love. And yes we had some fun times it’s true. But  Capitalism . . .it’s time to face the facts. The party’s over and no one believes your bullshit anymore. And everyone knows . . .you can’t trust a junkie. Now on your way! And don’t come back till you’re off the hard stuff.  You need to start thinking about the long-term future 





Coal Mining and The Most Beautiful Molecule

Carbon C60 A Beautiful Molecule?

Go Con-Figure

The most beautiful molecule is said to be carbon C60 and variants, known collectively as Fullerenes. The C60 story is both a wonderful treasure trove of delights and by turns unspectacular fizzers. It is all part of our current mysterious and marvelous history. In 1996, for the discovery of the structure of C60 (see picture above) the Royal Swedish Academy awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry to Kurl, Kroto and Smalley. Fact: In the 1990s there were more chemistry papers written about Carbon C60 than any other Chemistry subject by a factor of approximately 9 to 1. The extraordinary discovery of C60 (Bucky Balls & Fullerenes) heralded the warm glow of great hope . . . in many hearts, for scientific breakthroughs rarely see such wonder. Up until now it seems that the most significant outcome from C60 is Carbon nanotubes . . .all very well but it’s not exactly what was initially euphorically envisioned. A whole new industry will one day flourish based on the unlocked secrets of C60 for the production of super strength light-weight materials and the pricincipal raw material will be, without a doubt . . . COAL! And so today C60 is still virtually sitting on the shelf. It is a veritable sword in the stone. Perhaps we need a Lady of The Lake for Modern times and Fullerenes. Who can unlock this great secret? Well . . .if miracles take a little longer that we might at first imagine the wisdom says be realistic and demand the impossible.Go Con-Figure

On the flip side of the C60 story is, entirely appropriately, one of history’s most fascinating counter-points. Namely that the people of the world are now threatened with multiple calamities due to the burning of fossil fuels. If you can follow the story here . . .one of the principal forms of fossil fuels that we burn is coal – a product made up mainly of carbon.Yes . . .yes. . . yes.

Now it just so happens that Australia is the world’s leading producer of coal. And in pursuit of this black treasure, assorted billionaires and various governments are happy to oversee the mining of coal, with courts, guns and prisons at the ready should should any be foolish enough to try to stop them. Never mind the destruction to the environment, sensitive eco-systems, endangered species, trampling on the rights of farmers, tourism, Aboriginal sacred sights and God knows what. If you happen to be in the way of the black coal juggernaut then look out.  In Australia we are taking out of the ground around 500Million Tonnes of coal annually (we couldn’t verify the exact figure because the Australian Coal Association do not appear to publish this most basic fact on their PR heavy web site). More than half of which is exported to China, Japan, India and numerous other countries. One way or another it gets burned resulting in huge quantities of Carbon Dioxide being expelled into the atmosphere.  According to a recent calculation if we made a column of coal 1 metre by 10 metres out of the coal we dig up every year in Australia . . .it would reach to the moon. Freaky stuff.And people wonder how our burning of fossil fuels could influence climate. Unbelievable. Let’s do our best to wake those people up. It must now be understood that any who organize against the simple fact that burning fossil fuels is causing climate change are in truth now guilty of crimes against humanity. One day they may be so charged. We can only imagine that history will judge these pilferers of the common good and security not at all well. We must wish such deformed wrongdoers and all who conspire with them the very best of luck, because it is highly likely that they will need it. Go Con-Figure

The truly extraordinary facts

Truly Extraordinary Fact No’1: Clean and safe clean energy technologies called Zero-Point energy devices (among other things) have been routinely shut down and hidden from the public for the past 100 or so years. This started with Tesla and continues to the present day.

Truly Extraordinary Fact No’2: The carbon contained in the coal we are burning – principally to fire coal power plants – could be used in materials using compositions based on Fullerenes to make super strength light-weight products for all kinds of structural, engineering and building materials.

The solutions are just beyond our fingertips. Does the video below really show us how to build a free energy device.? Go con-Figure
