A big hat tip to Zen Gardner on his last article “Mimic – Meme of Archons” for pushing me over the edge to try to articulate a sort of conundrum that has been slowly taking shape in the depths of my consciousness.
One of the greatest challenges facing light warriors is unravelling the treacherous web of the logos, the words, the language. I’ll leave it to the more-enlightened minds out there to describe the role of words in the archonic parasitical complex. But in a nutshell, words and language can be very dangerous. It’s a sorcery or alchemy all its own. Words can be manipulated in ways that we do not fully comprehend or realize. When the collective human consciousness begins to surround a word or phrase with similar emotions or a false belief, the word becomes a place-holder for the parasites to gateway falseness and lies into the matrix… a sandy “hook” if you will (pun fully intended). It’s the rawest form of programming as it seeks to plug directly into our subconscious in a very stealthy fashion.
It occurred to me several months ago that there may have existed a word in the logos that was intentionally split or subdivided at some point long ago to obscure its real meaning. I do not know what it was originally was called, but I know it’s byproducts: Love and Truth. As with chemistry, often times in the alchemy of language when you split something good or harmless into two parts, you can get something reasonably benign, but you also get something very dangerous. Take water for instance. You get oxygen… not totally harmless, but very necessary and healthy to our bodies; and you get hydrogen… very dangerous on its own.
So what am I getting at here? Despite what the musings of the English band Sweet may have suggested, love is actually like hydrogen (not oxygen) in my simple metaphor. I could attempt an entire article on the notion of love, and it would resonate with maybe 5 or 10% of the populace. Why? Because people over the eons have been attempting to define and redefine this word, but always arriving at a different consensus, and I do not think that is accidental. If we polled the peeps on Just Wondering, I think we would get the best perspective on what love should look like, but that is a very small and enlightened segment of the population. And it doesn’t change the fact that the word is heavily manipulated and our society shows it.

We live in dangerous times, when economic collapse, climate chaos, and peak oil threaten the foundations of society, abundance, and all we hold dear. “Business as usual” will no longer suffice, because that way leads to certain pain, peril and impoverishment.
Unspeakable acts of violence like the slaughter at the Sandy Hook school or at the Boston Marathon bombing; natural disasters like Katrina and Sandy; economic uncertainty; technical failure; “peak everything;” and climate change can offer opportunities for either despair and disengagement or innovative collaboration. In the aftermath of such disasters communities often experience a surge of purposefulness to deal with the crisis. As a result, there is a need for better understanding of the specific and general resilience of communities, ecosystems, organizations, and institutions to cope with change.
This post examines the use of Permaculture principles to harness purposefulness for collaborative planning for resilience and regeneration by examining two communities that are surviving and in some cases thriving by building on the “sense of purpose” that occurs after a disaster or downturn.
This collaboration can take many forms including but not limited to defining “place” and by building consensus. In order to work there needs to be agreed upon definitions of place, resilience, regeneration, and Permaculture.
“Spirit of place symbolizes the living ecological relationship between a particular location and the persons who have derived from it and added to it the various aspects of their humanness. The reason we are now desecrating nature is not because we use it to our ends, but because we commonly manipulate it without respect for the spirit of place.” – Rene Dubos
Bruce Lipton believes 98% of all illness is environmental, while a mere 2% of disease can be traced to genetic disposition. Working as a stem cell researcher at Stanford University, Lipton uncovered a startling truth: Our genetic composition has very little influence on health, whereas the impact of chemistry within the body is far-reaching. The key to unlocking exceptional wellness is actually found in the subconscious mind – if we reprogram our negative thought habits, we create a new internal chemistry where spontaneous healing and vibrant health are possible.
Cells respond to environment, not pre-determined genetic code
During an interview on GreenMed TV, Lipton explored the ramifications of his discovery that genetically identical stem cells will behave differently when placed in varying petri-dish environments. Some would develop into bone cells, others muscle. It all depended on the specific chemical environment, not the genetic code. He began to question how this related to the human body and its 50 trillion cells.
The subconscious mind is master
Lipton applied his findings to the environment of the body; namely, how human chemistry is influenced. He found that the subconscious mind (which controls 95% of our thoughts, actions, beliefs and emotions) is running the chemistry show. When we have a thought or perception, it sets off a chain of chemical reactions within the body. If the thought is positive, it will foster a favorable chemical environment, leading to radiant mental states along with harmonious bodily processes. Yet if the thought is negative, stressful or fear based, biochemicals flood the system with a message of disease and disharmony, essentially shutting down immunity and proper functioning.

It has become a relatively well-known fact that boxed cereal is not the healthiest way to start your morning, to say the least. The preservatives, artificial colors, flavors and gluten content included in most brands leave them lacking the nutritional punch and energy boost that they advertise.
However, some boxed cereals are simply terrible, and what makes them even worse is the fact that they are precisely the types being marketed directly to our children.
The cereals marketed to kids have approximately 85 percent more sugar, 65 percent less fiber, and 60 percent more sodium than those marketed to adults. This is especially frightening since the average preschooler views about 642 ads per year on television, according to recent statistics.
The Environmental Working Group (EWG) recently surveyed 84 popular boxed cereal brands for sugar content, and found that only a quarter of them met the voluntarily-proposed guidelines of the Federal Interagency Working Group on Food Marketed to Children, which recommends no more than 26 percent added sugar by weight. The EWG is pushing to make this limit even lower, but so far, national brands arenâ€™t even close to meeting this bare minimum.
The following are 5 of the worst boxed cereals for overall health:
Honey Smacks: This sickeningly-sweet concoction leads the EWGâ€™s list of â€˜10 worst childrenâ€™s cereals,â€™ based on sugar content alone. This cereal is comprised of a whopping 56 percent sugar by weight.

A large scale review of research by Australia and Chinese University scientists has proved with thousands of studies using hundreds of thousands of cancer patients that Chinese herbal medicine offers significant treatment for most types of cancers - including breast cancer.
The research comes from Australia's University of Western Sydney and the Beijing University of Chinese Medicine. The researchers analyzed and reviewed 2,964 human clinical studies that involved 253,434 cancer patients. Among these were 2,385 randomized controlled studies and 579 non-randomized controlled studies.
These studies covered most of the cancer types, but the cancers most studied were lung cancer, liver cancer, stomach cancer, breast cancer, esophageal cancer, colorectal cancer and nasopharyngeal (throat and sinus) cancer. Yes, breast cancer was the fourth most-studied type of cancer among these thousands of clinical studies.
The researchers discovered that the overwhelming majority of studies – 90% of the clinical studies - utilized herbal medicine.
The researchers found that 72% of these studies applied Traditional Chinese Medicine alongside conventional treatment, but a full 28% applied Traditional Chinese Medicine separately to experimental groups.
In terms of cancer patients, about 64% were given both TCM and conventional medical treatments. The rest were given TCM therapy alone, but a little over half of them did not qualify whether the patient was given conventional treatment at some point in the past.
Because of the large number of studies, there were different types of results, depending upon the type of study, the type of treatment, and the outcome measures tested. Still, in a full 1,015 studies or 85% of those that reported on symptoms, TCM treatment resulted in improvement of cancer symptoms with many of those reporting reduced pain. Another 883 studies – 70% – showed increased survival rates. Another 38% showed reduced tumor size, and 28% showed increased quality of life. Another 19% showed lower relapse rates and another 7% showed reduced complications.
The clinical cannabis experience and consciousness research have independently demonstrated 9 mechanisms to deepen our healing process. Each of these mechanisms are subject to conscious intervention, and the more we know and understand about them the easier we can achieve the kind of healing that goes beyond the mere management of symptoms, and bring about profound and positive changes in the quality of our lives.
For instance, consciousness research in cancer has discovered that the single most common trait that determined cancer survival had been a sense of emotional authenticity. Similarly, many cannabis-using patients suffering from various cancers report disease regression in connection with the deep relaxation and frame of mind that makes it easier to accept one-self in the present moment even in the presence of otherwise intolerable feeling or emotions.
Another example, chronic negative affect, or the tendency to feel constricting emotions such as fear, worry and stress have been determined to harm our well being just as the opposite has been proven true. Cannabis is broadly recognized for its capacity to diminish negative affect and replace it with a gentle attitude, an easy smile and more optimistic outlook, all of which have proven to support out natural self-healing abilities.
Forgiveness has demonstrated a powerful ability to supercharge our healing process. Cannabis has the capacity to send a pink slip to the slave driver in the back of our mind that insists on punishment and blame as tools for growth and motivation. As a result, implementing forgiveness becomes easier and more elegant, and in doing so contributes to our healing.
Whether we are choosing to work with cannabis as an ally, whether we are working with consciousness alone, or whether we use a combination of both – the more we become conscious about these 9 natural mechanisms to deepen our healing process, the more our natural healing abilities multiply. Some will appear more familiar to us, others may take a little effort to master, but all can be learned, applied, and used to deepen our health and healing.
YouTube, owned by corporate giant Google, has banned our video discussing the corporate ownership of patents on human genes. This video, which featured nothing more than myself and Robert Scott Bell criticizing Angelina Jolie for hyping up BRCA breast cancer gene tests and being part of the trillion-dollar industry of "human genomics" apparently ran afoul of the content desires of YouTube, and they slapped our account with a "Community Guidelines warning strike."
The video was censored within hours of it being posted. "Within an hour of it going live on Infowars, the video was quickly taken down by YouTube," writes Steve Watson of InfoWars.com. "Viewers now clicking on the play button are presented with a static filled screen informing them that the video 'has been removed as a violation of YouTube's policy against spam, scams and commercially deceptive content."
You can see this yourself by trying to view the video right now at:
(Note: We have appealed the strike with YouTube, so this video may be restored depending on the outcome of the appeal.)
YouTube, of course, openly allows millions of "soft porn" videos, videos of women showing off their boobs, videos of teenage boys beating the crap out of each other, videos of people being physically harmed, videos of innocents being tasered by police and so on. But any intelligent discussion about corporate patents on human genes gets immediately struck down and censored.
Here's the video they don't want you to see, now hosted on TV.NaturalNews.com which is controlled by us, not Google:
Censorship of discussion only confirms the corporate conspiracy
That our video criticizing the corporate ownership of human genes was so quickly censored by YouTube only confirms what we already knew about Angelina Jolie and the P.R. rollout of her carefully timed, manipulated appeal to women to support the trillion-dollar industry of corporations owning human genes. Jolie's announcement of a double mastectomy was pre-planned to coordinate the release of People Magazine and now TIME Magazine, both of which feature Jolie on the cover and are obviously meant to influence a key Supreme Court decision about to be decided in the next few weeks which could make or break the entire industry of human genomics.
The likely motivation for all this is that Google wants to own human genes, too, and thus anyone exposing the crime of corporate patenting of human genes gets their videos immediately censored and removed. No discussion of this issue is allowed on their network! (Nor in the mainstream media...)
Today, 20 percent of human genes are already owned by corporations and universities. This is the ultimate domination over women and men: these corporations literally OWN your body. There is nothing more dis-empowering to women than pushing an agenda of corporate patents over human genes. It's a form of genetic enslavement.
But there's virtually no outcry against it. While most people are aware of the evil of corporations like Monsanto which wants to own the genetic code of food crops, relatively few people are aware of the fact that corporations already own 20 percent of your genetic code -- and they can demand you pay them royalties for merely testing your own genes!
The act of replicating your own genes -- by having children, for example -- is a violation of patent protection laws. You owe these companies royalties on your genes!
Angelina Jolie has so far refused to publicly denounce the corporate ownership of human genes. And why? Because as I've explained in previous articles, she appears to be selling women out to corporate domination. She's pumping up the BRCA testing industry and adding millions of dollars in valuation to the stock price of the company that "owns" those genes: Myriad Genetics.
It's rather obvious at this point, due to all the corporate involvement in her PR stunt, the YouTube censorship, the TIME Magazine cover, the carefully-crafted op-ed piece in the NYT, etc., that Angelina Jolie is simply the front man in a massive corporate scheme to mislead women into supporting a corporate domination agenda based on the patenting of human genes.
Now we know Google is also involved in the cover-up, a fact that shouldn't really surprise anyone considering Google's long-term aims.
Patents on human genes needs an organized response like we already see with GMOs
What's clear from all this is that the issue of corporations owning patents on human genes needs an organized, grassroots response mirroring what we now see with GMOs. We need a Jeffrey Smith for gene patents.
If women really knew just how their bodies were being enslaved by intellectual property laws, they would be marching in the streets right now. But they are kept in the dark, kept intentionally ignorant while deceptive agenda pushers like Angelina Jolie manipulate women through fear and disinformation... all backed by a highly-organized campaign pushed through the mainstream media.
Enslavement is never overt, my friends. It always comes disguised as compassion, promoted by someone who looks harmless and talks about "choice" and "family" and "women's rights." But make no mistake: All women are being fed into the corporate meat grinder on this issue. If we do not stop the patenting of human genes, we will ALL be owned by corporations and have no rights to our own DNA.
That's why I encourage you to join us in demanding that Angelina Jolie denounce corporate patents on human genes -- something she has so far refused to do. (And don't hold your breath...)

As a multitude of hazardous wireless technologies are deployed in homes, schools and workplaces, government officials and industry representatives continue to insist on their safety despite growing evidence to the contrary. A major health crisis looms that is only hastened through the extensive deployment of “smart grid” technology.
In October 2009 at Florida Power and Light’s (FPL) solar energy station President Barack Obama announced that $3.4 billion of the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act would be devoted to the country’s “smart energy grid” transition. Matching funds from the energy industry brought the total national Smart Grid investment to $8 billion. FPL was given $200 million of federal money to install 2.5 million “smart meters” on homes and businesses throughout the state.
By now many residents in the United States and Canada have the smart meters installed on their dwellings. Each of these meters is equipped with an electronic cellular transmitter that uses powerful bursts of electromagnetic radiofrequency (RF) radiation to communicate with nearby meters that together form an interlocking network transferring detailed information on residents’ electrical usage back to the utility every few minutes or less. Such information can easily be used to determine individual patterns of behavior based on power consumption.
The smart grid technology is being sold to the public as a way to “empower” individual energy consumers by allowing them to access information on their energy usage so that they may eventually save money by programming “smart” (i.e, wireless enabled) home appliances and equipment that will coordinate their operability with the smart meter to run when electrical rates are lowest. In other words, a broader plan behind smart grid technology involves a tiered rate system for electricity consumption that will be set by the utility to which customers will have no choice but to conform.
Because of power companies’ stealth rollout of smart meters a large majority of the public still remains unaware of the dangers they pose to human health. This remains the case even though states such as Maine have adopted an “opt out” provision for their citizens. The devices have not been safety-tested by Underwriters Laboratory and thus lack the UL approval customary for most electronics. Further, power customers are typically told by their utilities that the smart meter only communicates with the power company “a few times per day” to transmit information on individual household energy usage. However, when individuals obtained the necessary equipment to do their own testing they found the meters were emitting bursts of RF radiation throughout the home far more intense than a cell phone call every minute or less.

Top 10 most unhealthy, cancer-causing foods – never eat these again!
The statement “everything causes cancer” has become a popular hyperbole, and one that some people use as rhetorical fodder to excuse their own dietary and lifestyle failures, particularly as they pertain to cancer risk. But the truth of the matter is that many common food items have, indeed, been scientifically shown to increase cancer risk, and some of them substantially. Here are 10 of the most unhealthy, cancer-causing foods that you should never eat again:
1) Genetically-modified organisms (GMOs). It goes without saying that GMOs have no legitimate place in any cancer-free diet, especially now that both GMOs and the chemicals used to grow them have been shown to cause rapid tumor growth. But GMOs are everywhere, including in most food derivatives made from conventional corn, soybeans, and canola. However, you can avoid them by sticking with certified organic, certified non-GMO verified, and locally-grown foods that are produced naturally without biotechnology.
2) Processed meats. Most processed meat products, including lunch meats, bacon, sausage, and hot dogs, contain chemical preservatives that make them appear fresh and appealing, but that can also cause cancer. Both sodium nitrite and sodium nitrate have been linked to significantly increasing the risk of colon and other forms of cancer, so be sure to choose only uncured meat products made without nitrates, and preferably from grass-fed sources.
3) Microwave popcorn. They might be convenient, but those bags of microwave popcorn are lined with chemicals that are linked to causing not only infertility but also liver, testicular, and pancreatic cancers. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognizes the perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) in microwave popcorn bag linings as “likely” carcinogenic, and several independent studies have linked the chemical to causing tumors. Similarly, the diacetyl chemical used in the popcorn itself is linked to causing both lung damage and cancer.

Climaxing yesterday, the sun will have unleashed three X-class solar flares. These are the strongest flares of the year so far, and they signal a significant increase in solar activity with more to come. Historically, research has been conducted to link the 11 year cycle of the sun to changes in human behavior and society. Research done in the last hundred years that shows the most malefic effects from solar activity come at the sunspot minima.
Solar flares are intense blooms of radiation that come from the release of the magnetic energy associated with sunspots. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) ranks solar flares using five categories from weakest to stongest: A, B, C, M, and X. Each category is 10 times stronger than the one before it. Within each category, a flare is ranked from 1 to 9, according to strength, although X-class flares can go higher than 9. According to NASA, the most powerful solar flare recorded was an X28 (in 2003).
Coronal mass ejections (CMEs) are bursts of solar material (clouds of plasma and magnetic fields) that shoot off the sun's surface. Other solar events include solar wind streams that come from the coronal holes on the Sun and solar energetic particles that are primarily released by CMEs.
What is a Solar Cycle?
The number of sunspots increase and decrease over time in a regular, approximately 11-year cycle, called the solar or sunspot cycle. The exact length of the cycle can vary. More sunspots mean increased solar activityâ€”flares and CMEs. The highest number of sun spots in any given cycle is designated "solar maximum," while the lowest number is designated "solar minimum."
Solar Minimum: According to NOAA and NASA, the sunspot cycle hit an unusually deep bottom from 2007 to 2009. In fact, in 2008 and 2009, there were almost NO sunspots, a very unusual situation that had not happened for almost a century. Due to the weak solar activity, galactic cosmic rays were at record levels.
Real and natural salt is as essential to life as water – without it we would die. Salt has been so valuable through history that it was even used as currency in Rome and traded by explorers throughout Europe and Africa for gold.
Unrefined, natural salt is vital to a number of biological functions, such as;
- Exporting nutrients to and from cells
- Keeping blood pressure stable
- Increasing brain cells that regulate long-term planning and creative thinking
- Assisting the brain in communicating with the muscles
Over 80% of salt that Americans consume comes from processed and fast foods, and it is totally refined and unhealthy. Despite the pressure that outraged consumers and public health agencies have put on food manufacturers to reduce sodium levels, a new Northwestern Medicine study shows that sodium levels in packaged and fast food remains dangerously high.
It appears as though the food manufacturers are not going to voluntarily lower sodium levels and that government regulation is necessary to protect the public.
What We Are Being Told
According to health officials, high sodium diets are to blame for hundreds of thousands of deaths each year. While it is true that sodium levels in processed foods are remarkably high and should be reduced, is it really salt that is to blame for these deaths and rising hypertension rates?
The mind vs. brain debate has been going on since before Aristotle. He and Plato argued that the soul housed intelligence or wisdom and that it could not be placed within the physical body. In a well-described version of dualism, Descartes identifies mind with the consciousness and self-awareness of itself, with an ability to distinguish itself from the brain, but still called the brain the seat of intelligence.
In yogic science, the mind is considered to be pure vibrating energy. It is an element (non-physical by nature) which conducts “thought” faster than the speed of light and retains all experience whether consciously addressed by the thinker or not. It can create substance from nothing. It contains the aura, or energy body and can project to other minds, and receive from them also. It communicates in the language of feeling. It has a profound effect on the energy level of the physical body, which temporarily houses it, and has the capacity to heal its own physical house as well as that of others. It is often referred to as a Spark of the Divine or as a wave on the vast limitless ocean of the cosmic ever-present possibility of what is. Our minds, due to their nature as a spark or wave of a much greater, infinite intelligence, are capable of unbelievable things.
In yogic science, the brain is simply a physical manifestation of the mind itself. This is a complex idea to grasp. Let us look at one profoundly odd phenomenon to try to understand the mind/brain difference.
About 80% of people who have lost a limb due to accident or illness report feeling excruciating pain, burning, aching, or even as though this absent part of their bodies is being crushed even when it is no longer there. This is often referred to as the phantom limb. The sensations of pain are created by the brain and are experienced no differently than someone with a present limb.
This incredible phenomenon has stumped doctors for over a hundred years. Only now are they beginning to understand, partly through research by Dr. Ramachandran, that “the touch signals from the entire surface of your body are mapped on the surface of your brain – in a strip between your two ears called your sensory cortex. The area that ‘feels’ your hand is very close to the area for your face.”
Angelina Jolie's announcement of undergoing a double mastectomy (surgically removing both breasts) even though she had no breast cancer is not the innocent, spontaneous, "heroic choice" that has been portrayed in the mainstream media. Natural News has learned it's all part of well-timed for-profit corporate P.R. campaign that has been planned for months and just happens to coincide with the upcoming U.S. Supreme Court decision on the viability of the BRCA1 patent.
This is the investigation the mainstream media refuses to touch. Here, I explain the corporate financial ties, investors, mergers, human gene patents, lawsuits, medical fear mongering and the trillions of dollars that are at stake here. If you pull back the curtain on this one, you find far more than an innocent looking woman exercising a "choice." This is about protecting trillions in profits through the deployment of carefully-crafted public relations campaigns designed to manipulate the public opinion of women.
The signs were all there from the beginning of the scheme: Angelina Jolie's highly polished and obviously corporate-written op-ed piece at the New York Times, the carefully-crafted talking points invoking "choice" as a politically-charged keyword, and the obvious coaching of even her husband Brad Pitt who carefully describes the entire experience using words like "stronger" and "pride" and "family."
But the smoking gun is the fact that Angelina Jolie's seemingly spontaneous announcement magically appeared on the cover of People Magazine this week -- a magazine that is usually finalized for publication three weeks before it appears on newsstands. That cover, not surprisingly, uses the same language found in the NYT op-ed piece: "HER BRAVE CHOICE" and "This was the right thing to do." The flowery, pro-choice language is not a coincidence.

In 1826, Anthelme Brillat-Savarin wrote, “Dis-moi ce que tu manges, je te dirai ce que tu es,” which translates into, “Tell me what you eat and I will tell you what you are.”
Of course, this is not meant to be taken literally, in the sense that if you eat a pig, you are a pig. However, what was meant was that the food that we eat has a direct influence on our mind and our body.
It goes without saying that when the food we consume is laden with pesticides or toxic chemicals, we will ingest these things. Researchers at Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future set out to prove just this with regards to chicken.
In the years 2010 and 2011, researchers collected chicken samples from grocers in ten major cities in the United States. Some of these samples were conventional chicken, some were antibiotic-free chicken, and some were USDA Certified Organic chicken.
During the research period, the pharmaceutical giant Pfizer was making and selling an arsenic-based drug, known as roxarsone, which was commonly mixed with poultry feed.
When the results of the study came in, not only did researchers find inorganic arsenic in some of the meat samples, but also traces of roxarsone. Chicken that had residual roxarsone also had levels of inorganic arsenic that was four times higher than levels found in the USDA Organic chicken samples.
