Aquarius, The Mayans, And Kali Yuga

Towards the end of 2012 I became quite disturbed by the predictions surrounding the end of the Mayan calender. Not that I thought that anything was going to happen, but I decided to do some research on an idea that I had been considering for a number of years and it left me feeling bad for a while.

The basic premise that I was following up on, is that the end of the Mayan calender is the same event as the age of Kali Yuga in Hinduism, and also the same as the Aquarian age, as foretold by "New Agers".
These events loosely correlate. A time of upheaval is imminent, followed by a new era of peace and security on earth.
The timing is too much of a coincidence for them to be separate events. Particularly with reference to The Mayan Calender and Kali Yuga. They both originated at around 3100BC which interestingly, was also the time that the Greek version of the Old Testament places the biblical character Nimrod, founder of the Babylonian civilisation.

The reason that I do not accept that these predictions carry any weight, is because they are formulated using occult methods such as numerology and astrology, but like the modern day predictions of astrology, they can become, self fulfilling, provided enough people believe in them.

December 21st 2012 came and went without issue. It was just another day because there was no real reason to suspect that it was going to be anything else.
My research journey left me chilled by the fact that these events are promoted in order that we may believe the methodology of the occult, and the fruit of occultism is always destructive.

Faith in occult doctrine, empowers dark energies, deceiving spirits, demons, call them what you will
Disbelieve if you are so inclined. There are plenty of distractions around if this is not your cup of tea.

How Long Is A Piece Of String Theory?

Years ago, my mate had a theory that "high end" Hi Fi turntables were, so good that they were rubbish. What he was saying that, the arms were so sensitive, you couldn't walk across the floor without them skating across the record. He was right
The same applies to the new self service checkouts at Morrisons. One day the machine was just eating my coins without registering them. When the manager had opened up the coin mechanism, he found bits of fluff that had clogged it up. He maintained that the machines were state of the art, to which my reply was, "They're so good, they're rubbish" It's true.

The principal can apply to all sorts of stuff, String theory for example. It's so clever, it,s rubbish.
How can you measure how long a piece of string is without giving a value to something that is immeasurable?
Then there is Super String and M theory, D brane theory and 11 different dimensions.

It's at the point where more faith is required to believe it, than to believe in the supernatural.

Maybe science is a religion. It certainly punches above it's weight in my opinion.
I am quite convinced that aspects of modern science are just a form of legitimised gnosticism but maybe that's another story.

On a slightly different note, I was quite surprised when I looked up the definition of "technocracy" It appears that "Social sciences" are not included in the definition. I would disagree most strongly, since it is clear that the development of social science at the time of the enlightenment, most definitely became a tool by which the ruling elites, "managed" society. maybe the dictionary writers are not as insightful as one would have hoped.

Max Headroom

I ran out of steam for the blog a few days ago.

The difficulty for me is that, firstly, I have to have sufficient mental prowess to be able to run a string of thoughts together in logical sequence. After that, I need to be able to transfer the thought process to text. It can be tricky, since commonly used words have a habit of refusing to enter my mind, and the discipline to suspend the thoughts in the right place while dealing with grammar and spelling issues, can be exhausting.

Then there is the lack of willpower to even bother in the first place. Even when the idea is strong and the English flows well, the thought that it is all a waste of time due to the fact that no one actually reads it, is always a potential drain to the enthusiasm. Even if people do read it, they might just consider the blog to be poorly written, ill considered, biased, uninformed, or naive.

Still, the need to write, remains and always returns. I simply ran out of headroom for a short while.
Funnily enough, It was from looking at the technical aspects of recording signals into a Digital Audio Workstation that seemed to illustrate this to me, thus allowing myself to re-calibrate the attenuation of my thought processes.

Its a pity I can't re-calibrate them on the Mackie mixer I am using.

No Wonder We Are Feeling Vexed Lately

A number of items have caught my attention in these last few days. Things which have strengthened my belief that we are expected to line up quietly, while the economic and political elite, spit on us.

Energy giant, NPower are accused of not paying corporation tax for three years running, despite a 9% price rise and a 34% increase in profits.
The other energy firms have been paying out "fat cat" bonuses totalling £5 million.
Meanwhile, more than 24% of the UK population are officially living in energy poverty.
NPower have used the investment in future energy resources, as the reason for ducking the tax bill. It is standard accounting practise apparently.
I might be swayed if they were investing in our future with philanthropic motives, but they're not. They are investing so that the directors can get bigger bonuses and shareholders can get higher dividends.
Who said that firms who invest in future energy infrastructure, should be able to offset their tax liability?
I bet whoever it was is not sitting in a cold, dark room right now.

Chairman of food giant, Nestle, Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, calls for water to be privatised and says that the idea of water as a basic human right, is an extreme view.
Nestle is the worlds largest food company and 27th largest company. It employs 270,000 people directly.
As Chairman of this organisation, Brabeck-Letmathe, could be said to be at the very top of the food chain. According to Darwin, this guy should be some kind of superhuman but all I see is a sociopath, someone who cannot empathise with the people in Brazil, who's water supply is destroyed so that Nestle can sell it to rich westerners, or those children who process cocoa, who are forced to work in conditions that Brabeck-lemathe wouldn't allow his dog to endure.

The actions of NPower executives, Nestle fat cats, and the governments that allow them to operate with impunity, have not gone unnoticed.

There is an answer to all this. Simply stop playing the game. The whole merry go round relies on our cooperation.

Storm Thorgerson Dies aged 69

Storm (what a great name) Thorgerson created some of the most iconic album covers of my generation.
Including 10 for Pink Floyd, of which, this one is arguably the most famous.

Here are some others.


 Simply some of the coolest album art ever produced.

Knowledge is Foolishness

As we continue to watch the global economy disintegrate. It occurs to me that Radical Islam, who we would have thought would be cheer leading the downfall of Western economic systems, seem to be unaware of the situation. It could even be argued that they are as much a part of the system as anyone else.
If there really is a surge in "short trading" to coincide with terror attacks, then we could safely assume that the "system" is patronised by all and sundry.

The Muslim Brotherhood shares some similarities with Freemasonry. There are some suggestions that founder, Hassan al-Banna,  was linked to the masonic fraternity and that the Lodge was instrumental in the rapid growth of the Brotherhood.

Its not easy to establish the truth when dealing with such shadowy organisations. They prefer to operate under the cover of secrecy. Of course that mode is in keeping with all occult activity. The key factor in passing on, arcane knowledge, is that the recipient has to be sufficiantly advanced before he/she is worthy to receive it.
The whole realm of witchcraft and magic operates this way.

Ultimately it is all about power over those beneath you within the hierarchy. And those who desire the secrets of the universe, are eager to jump through hoops for their spiritual masters.
Regardless of what secrets are offered, the path is a very poor second compared with a relationship with the creator Himself.

The Anti Communitarian League

Niki Rapaana, along with her daughter Nordica Friedrich are the founders of the ACL and authors of the "Anti Communitarian Manifesto"
Niki got into a spat with the local government in Seattle USA and now lives in a community of yurt dwellers in Alaska.

The basic thesis of the ACL is that "Communitarianism" is the "synthesis" of the Left/Right or East/West dialectic.
Sounds straightforward enough but even those who studied Hegel at university, struggle to grasp the basic tenets of the dialectical process. Maybe you have to escape before you can see it properly, maybe you need a different perspective, from the outside looking in as it were.

Here is Niki talking about some aspects of Communitarianism.

Clearly, this dialectic is unfinished, we still have such strong left v right rhetoric on a national level (evident with the death of Thatcher) Internationally we can see the same opposing ideologies played out in the Korean Crisis.
I always realised that opting out of the system was never really an option. That I simply would not be allowed to build a house of the side of a hill somewhere and live off the fruit of the land, minding my own business. All the land belongs to someone and as soon as I had any resources to live off, they would be taxed. Niki shows the kind of extremes that it is necessary to go to for such a lifestyle. It can be -30 degrees for weeks at a time in Anchorage.
While I am on this topic, it is worth noting that there is a convergence of thought/belief with Communitarianism (or one of its alternative appellations) and the philosophy of the New Age or New World Order. Which really equates to a reconstituted Babylonian civilisation. Sounds too far out but they say that "Fact is stranger than fiction"

The Vampire Economy

This book which is available as free PDF download is a fascinating study of economics under the Third Reich. Simailarities can be seen in the way things have become here in 2013.
Confiscation of private property is one of the key indicators

What is Freedom?

This is crucial

Margaret Thatcher referred to the "freedom to choose" as a kind of moral requisite to be levied against the institutional socialism that was a result of 1970s Labour policy.
However, when she (and successive western governments) referred to freedom, they tended to use a kind of "Orwellian Doublespeak" 

This is hard to write about. There should be no ambiguity here. So much is at stake.

To illustrate the double meaning of freedom, there is probably no better image than "Lady Liberty"

The UNESCO "Statement of Significance" describes the statue as a "masterpiece of the human spirit" that "endures as a highly potent symbol—inspiring contemplation, debate and protest—of ideals such as liberty, peace, human rights, abolition of slavery, democracy and opportunity" (Source:Wiki)

The creator of the Statue of Liberty was Freemason, Frederic Auguste Bartholdi. Anyone who understands what Freemasonry is REALLY about, will know that this "Masonic freedom cult" seeks to be freed from God's law. This is why Lucifer is venerated by occultists. He is considered to be the liberator of mankind from  the yoke of slavery to God.

The Hegelian Dialectic

I had decided to stay away from the Thatcher topic for a while but I can't.
When will everyone realise that things go much deeper than a simple left/right dichotomy?

Could Thatcher's Funeral Cause Riots?

Who would have thought the death of Margaret Thatcher would polarise opinion to the extent it has?

During a mini riot in Brixton last night, some "enterprising" individual, managed to change the display on the "Ritzy".
Spontaneous parties erupted across the country as news of the death of, "Pariah", Thatcher spread. Some photographs show images of Thatcher being burned, Middle Eastern style.
Meanwhile, there were calls for her statue to be erected in Trafalgar Square alongside the other great British Heroes.
I cannot remember seeing so much joy being poured out due to the death of an English person.
This means that she was hated more than we ever realised, or society has declined to the point where respect for the dead is no longer considered appropriate by many.
The first is evident. I fear the second maybe applicable too.
If this is the reaction following news of Margaret Thatchers death, what on earth is going to happen if they decide to hold a "Diana" style funeral service?
Should the government take note here? Yes, undoubtedly. There is a powder keg of dissatisfaction waiting to be ignited and the smallest spark, such as the perception of undue honour being bestowed upon "The Pariah" Thatcher, could blow the whole gaff up, seriously.
These are strange and dangerous times.

Yesterday Bedtime

I was chatting with my nine year old son at bedtime last night. He had heard on TV that America might get attacked by Korea and was worried about it.
I remembered my own nuclear fears at that age and wondered if his generation would grow up under the constant threat of nuclear war as well.
I reassured him that the issue with Nth Korea was just to distract our attention away from the troubles of the economy in Europe and America. "What troubles?" he asked.
I explained how the banking crisis started and why money is an illusion unless it is linked to something with real value. To his credit, he seemed to understand easily enough. I'm not sure I would have understood that at his age. Then he told me that Dumbledore is 115 years old and is actually related to the Queen. "Interesting" I said.
"Tell me more things" he said, "It makes me go to sleep".
I realised that my monotonous drone was not enlightening him so much, as lulling him off.

Have been feeling better yesterday and today. I'm sure it is in part, due to the seasonal weather. Even a few hours of sunshine at this time of year is enough to lift the spirits. It looked like everywhere I went, folks were smiling and happy. It is hard not to feel the same.
There are so many things going on at the moment. Its hard to know how to approach events from a blogging perspective. There are some things that have lain dormant for a while which should get an airing before too long. As usual, most of it is stuff which appears to fly over heads at the speed of sound. It doesn't mean It's not going to get written. In fact in some ways it's easier like that.

So Baroness Thatcher died today, filling the country with delight and sadness in seemingly equal measure. Most people still don't understand that Prime Ministers and Presidents, don't actually get to make decisions on their own.
Baroness Thatcher was promoting an ideology which was dictated to her by shadowy figures from the upper echelons of power. People like the Bilderbergers for example.
The Reason Mrs Thatcher seemed to be the architect of her policies, was because she believed in them so ardently. How convenient. It certainly made the appearance of strong government, unlike the shower of...  Err what can I call them without offending anyone?.....Politicians, we have in "power" today. I use the word power advisedly. Maybe "puppets" would have been better or even "Muppets" but anyway... moving on.

Thanks to James Higham and the merry bloggers over at Nourishing Obscurity for many interesting posts.

Ill health had descended upon the McAdam household this week. I have been suffering with, lets say, an illness which most people get as children. I either didn't get it, or have it twice which is most unusual. Apart from the discomfort, I am highly contagious which does not go down well when trying to deal with my wife's illness, something that involves trips out, doctors, pharmacy etc.

Hopefully, next week will see us both on the mend. Its possibly a taster of what life will be like when we are old.

Caxton Gibbet

Caxton, a small village west of Cambridge is known for its famous gibbet pictured here:

This is not the original gibbet, but a reconstruction from around 1900 which used to stand outside the now disappeared inn of the same name. Rather than a traditional gallows, used for hanging, the gibbet was an altogether more macabre punishment.
"Gibbeting was the punishment for some capital offences including highway robbery. An iron cage would have hung from the wooden arm of the original gibbet. Here criminals were hung, imprisoned in the cage until they were dead. The head was clamped at the top to prevent tired legs from resting and the person would slowly starve to death, or in the winter succumb to exposure. The body would remain suspended for some time after death as a warning to others.". (Source:
There are no primary sources indicating that the death penalty was actually carried out at Caxton. It seems that as Caxton had one of the only two post offices in the country, there would have been a high incidence of highway robbery. Local Antiquarian, William Cole (1714-1782) is believed to have referred to Caxton when he wrote this:
"About 1753 or 1754 the son of Mrs. Gatward being convicted of robbing the Mail was hanged in chains on the Great Road. I saw him hanging in a scarlet coat after he had hung 2 or 4 months it is supposed that the screw was filed which supported him and that he fell in the first high wind after."
This site in Caxton is shortly going to become a MacDonald's. Some would prefer the gibbet.

The Daily Mail Should Be Ashamed Of This

At least the Guardian agrees that this is terrible reporting with this article.

Don't get mad about the Mail's use of the Philpotts to tarnish the poor – get even

If we were to use such broad strokes in our condemnation of others, then ALL politicians are thieves and Paedophiles. OK I'll admit that the second part may not be true.

Since there is a concerted media campaign to label benefit claimants as scroungers, it seems worth the effort to examine exactly why so many people are forced (or choose) to sign on. Remember it's not just the unemployed who claim benefit, but also those who are in low paid or part time work.

Here is an excerpt from Greg Palast's "The Best Democracy Money Can Buy"
In 1998, he was hired by the Observer to find out what goes on inside "Corporate America".
I think his findings accurately display the relationship between corporatism and government.

$ CHAPTER 5 $  


"Wal-Mart invented the disposable workforce. About a third of the workers are temporary and hours expand, shift, contract at whim.

The workforce turns over like the shoe inventory, so few ever collect full pensions or profit shares.

But Wal-Mart does provide free meals-sort of. Most workers' salaries are near or below the official U.S. poverty line, so those without second jobs qualify for government food stamps. With 1.3 million workers, Wal-Mart has the nation's largest payroll, if you call that pay. Taking over the care and feeding of the WalMartyred workforce is a huge government welfare program. It could have been worse, but the courts rejected Walton's plea for exemption from the U.S. minimum wage"
What's the difference here, today?
Maybe I'm naive but if everyone was playing the game, technological advances such as the industrial revolution or the digital age, could have, (should have) made it possible for us all to do the minimum of work while still enjoying a relatively comfortable lifestyle.
I have more to say on this but not feeling 100% so I will go off to bed.

Artist Graham Ovenden Convicted of Historic Child Sex Offences

Artist, 70, found guilty of six charges of indecency with a child and one of indecent assault relating to photographic sessions.

The Guardian,

An internationally renowned artist and photographer, whose work has included portraits of nude children, has been convicted of historic sex offences against young girls dating back 40 years.
Graham Ovenden, 70, whose early tutelage was under Sir Peter Blake, the "godfather of pop art", was found guilty at Truro crown court of six charges of indecency with a child and one of indecent assault.
Ovenden, who at the height of his commercial success exhibited at the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Tate in London, and at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, was acquitted of two charges of indecent assault and found not guilty, on the direction of judge Graham Cottle, of three further charges of indecent assault.
The artist, who described himself as creator of "some of the best portraits of children in the last 200 years", had denied the charges relating to four girls who were aged between six and 14 years at the time of the offences, which occurred between 1972 and 1985. The court heard these children sat for him during photographic sessions when he "posed them indecently".
He was not in court to hear the verdicts, having been taken ill at the weekend.
Ovenden, of The Garage in Barley Splatt, near Bodmin Moor, Cornwall, whose work has hung in some of the world's finest galleries, had rejected claims he had a sexual interest in children.
But the prosecutor, Ramsay Quaife, told jurors during the five-week trial that he was "a paedophile". His portraiture was part of a ruse to abuse young girls, making them dress in Victorian clothing before removing it and committing indecent acts. The incidents took place at his former home in Hounslow, London, as well as in north Cornwall, where he had a studio.
Ovenden had denied the abuse ever happened, telling the court he had taken pictures of children – including those in various states of undress – but said they were not indecent.
From the witness box, he quoted biblical and literary works to justify his use of naked children as part of his "state of grace" body of work. He argued: "We're not born with trousers, skirts, shirts and shoes. One of the great qualities of art is to go back to the great point, the Garden of Eden."
He told the court: "I have to say the absolute witch-hunt which is going on at the moment – and the idea of a child naked as something to be frowned upon – is absolutely abhorrent."
The artist, who had been tutored by Lord David Cecil and Sir John Betjeman, attended the Southampton School of Art and graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1968, before embarking on a career in which he catalogued life on the streets of London and produced acclaimed countryside landscapes as well as portraiture of children.
In 1975, he founded the artistic movement the Brotherhood of Ruralists – artists who had left the city to live in the countryside.
He had since sold his home at Barley Splatt, though he remains on the sprawling estate, living in a converted outbuilding, but he described it as a place where writers, musicians and artists would gather.
Children, he said, would regularly discard their clothing when they were playing at the home, often accompanied on visits by parents.]
The court heard that the complainants only came forward as adults after 2000 – although two had returned to Barley Splatt years afterwards to have their picture taken by Ovenden and to attend an exhibition there. Read the full article.

The Jet Stream Is Doing The Hokey Cokey

I am so fed up with the cold weather but I have stopped complaining about it (at least outwardly).
It comes to something when the number one topic of conversation among Brits, is now considered to be overdone. Yes we know the weather stinks, we're all fed up about it. Whats the point in saying, "cold isn't it?" We know!

Its at the point now where, if I could, I would start to take issue with those in charge, but it's the powers of nature isn't it?

Over the last few years, most of the weather anomalies seems to have been the result of changes in the jet stream. This seems to be a relatively recent phenomena. I don't remember hearing about this as a kid or young adult. Is it really a new thing or are we just able to chart the jet stream more accurately now days?

It seems to coincide with what scientists are telling us about climate change, although the pattern of global warming seems to have been reversed, if indeed there was a pattern there in the first place.
So winters have been much longer and lower average temperatures  over the last few years, yet governments are forging ahead with carbon tax schemes. They say in investigative reporting, "follow the money" In this case, the finger pointed at the climate change scientists even before "climategate"

I am very reluctant to even give credibility to the notion of weather control but I have to consider HAARP as a possible culprit for this awful weather.
If so, I could take issue with those in charge after all.

Weather control and chem trails, tend to belong in the extreme fringe of conspiracy theory but I always think of that great adage,

"Just because you are paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not out to get you"
