holier than thou…

Last year I obtained 2 papers regarding International Terrorism – as differentiated from Domestic  – with one coming from the US State Department and the other having been done by an academic from Chicago.

When looked at, the paper from Chicago turned out to be almost 99% blank. The State department, 5 pages, outlined how, at a certain level, the terrorists were all working together and sharing resources. So that’s IRA with Sandinista’s, or Islamic State, or Noriega with Cocaine money. At a “certain” level it may appear as if the exact same “players” are behind all the “events” on your radar. [It’s because they “actually” hold meetings of their “tribes” or “clans” — or did in the 70s, 80s etc]

It’s similar to what writers have had to say about Scientology.

more charles manson…

I know I have already written something about the “thing” called the Charles Manson case which took place in California in the late 60s, perhaps 68, but some “new” data has come to me and I feel that it should be made available to the public at large. How this new data came to me is a small story in itself.

It involves a church in California called Self Realization Fellowship that was founded in the 20s by an Indian Swami going under the “title” of Paramahansa Yogananda. It is a “title” rather than simply a name and refers to an Incarnation of Godhead – Krishna in his form of a Divine Swan who has the ability to separate milk from a mixture of water and milk.

I’ve read quite a lot about Krishna as the “original personality” of Godhead and almost concluded that what they mean by that, is what Bible believers  mean when they speak of Adam – The First or Original “man”. So in this sense Krishna isn’t himself “divine” or potent, but rather shows what The Father is in His Fullness. The other aspect of the Krishna story is about how he dies – at the hands of his own army.

There is a huge battle about to take place and Krishna asks the leaders of both sides which do they want? His army or his person? The opposition chooses his army, and at the height of the battle Krishna is struck on the heel by an arrow which causes his death. In a similar way, God cursed the serpent in the garden by saying he would “bruise” Adam’s heel.

But that isn’t the “incarnation” known as Paramahansa. That one is manifest towards the end of the “scheduled incarnations” list, even after Lord Buddha incarnates – for Lord Buddha is defined as another, #21, incarnation of the Godhead. After Him there arises the 22nd Incarnation known as the Kalki incarnation

Anyway, I had asked for “prayers of remembrance” to be held every morning for 3 months for a bunch of people I had named on a list I’d sent. One was a girl I’d met on-line named Leigh who said her father had been a US Senator but now ran a Bible College in Arizona. I thought she was nice but quite mixed up, and not simply because she’d done a stint as an “intern” at the White House when Bush and Clinton had resided there.

About a month into the “remembrances” I found myself driving in the foothills along a fairly new road extension I’d not use previously; Oh sure I’d been up to that area of the hills many years before, but hadn’t found any reason to go there since. This greatly expanded road was behind Flinders University & Hospital, and had 4 lanes each way going, ultimately, to Blackwood – where I’d spent lots of time in the 60s visiting with Mandy Shute, a school chum.

I had already, by the bye, found some names I could link to some addresses which I believed could be connected to the actual Charles Manson gang murders. These were “National Front” names I recognised, but then, there was no organisation called The National Front. Their names linked to a house at #66 Sydneyham Road, Norwood where I knew Garth and Rosemary Boehm and their 2 kids, Michael and Cassandra. Garth was a Ph. D. in Chemistry who taught part time at Adelaide university, while Rosemary was a housewife. I think I have already outlined how their story evolved, when Garth and Rosemary were “under age” and found themselves pregnant – placing them in a very tenuous position which included the possibility of the State taking their child away from them once it’d been born. Garth’s father was a lawyer and so he mounted a Supreme Court case to stop the State from taking the child; and what was surprising was that he won and Rosemary was allowed to keep the baby and look after it at home with Garth.

The mix up came when locals tried to say the Hollywood movie, Rosemary’s Baby, somehow had something to do with Rosemary Boehm. And of course there were the numbers. 66 for the house and some chapter reference in the New Testament about The Beast with the number of six hundred. Who the beast was and what purpose he served was never explained. I had, since writing about them in this blog, come across some local cross references to “names” which would in the 70s and later become known as The National Front, and so I tried to piece together some scenario which saw people from here arranging the whole Charles Manson “thing”.

It was “thin” so far as plots go, and I shelved the whole idea and let it lay fallow.

And then a month into “remembrances” I happened to find myself driving up a fairly new substantial road the government had put in, only to see that so far as my theory was concerned, others had invested in bricks and mortar by opening up “shops” on or near Manson Street, which was next door to a state govt. high school. The shops were Porn, “Massage” i. e. prostitution, and Tattoo parlour. And it was obviously linked to what I’d come to know in various other areas as Organised Crime run by bikies!

So, with Manson you had a Swastika displayed on his forehead to show where his “politics” lay, and from my research it showed that the National Front came into “view” as a result of what the Manson gang had done. That was in the late 60s, and many years have passed and today you have One Nation parties in most western democracies running as the National Front. This was witnessed in France last month, and the U.K. with Nigel Faraj, late last year.

But the question remains, did someone actually “order” the killings to the extent of “how to”?

Perhaps the only “odd” thing to be found at Sydneham Road these days is a shop on the corner using the letters MUMU as their name; I ponder, is it because in Iowa since the 70s there has been an M.U.M.? Maharishi University of Management?

The Maharishi people tend to always take you into “show business” and here it’s no different. Directly, one of the famous Marahishi band members named Wilson met and spent time with Manson in the months before the slaughter.

And in America they had that huge franchise, “Starwars” which has come and gone so many times you lose count. But the “central” idea is that there’s a “dark side” and it’s run by Darth; which can easily be seen to be an as-is of the name, Garth. To my experience Garth wasn’t the leader of the Dark Side, but there’s no doubt now I’ve really looked into it deeply, that some very sinister people started getting involved in “politics” via the so called propaganda of the deed.

Maud Street…

I was watching a film clip from a Bob Dylan, in UK, concert from this week via YouTube; the sound quality wasn’t at 100% but because I’d heard the song a million times already that didn’t matter much. I suppose that’s why they called Bob Dylan a poet. He juxtaposes imagery in a way as to fascinate you. But with me, the imagery is that of someone I once knew named Johanna Van Dersmann. Pronounced just like he does in the song, Visions of Johanna, from the 60s.

I wasn’t very close to Johanna, actually, but knew that she lived on Maud Street, either next door or behind, a timber processing factory – a small one as Maud Street was right off Unley Road, just across from Young Street, and Mary Street, too. Johanna was into guitar type music, folk you might say, and was only as old, or as young I was. I knew her boyfriend slightly better, Arnold of Grace Street, but his music was electric and really strange as it wasn’t like rock and roll. In the 60s when we were all at Unley High school, which was many years before that future Australian Prime Minister was to attend, Julia Gillard, relationships were mostly innocent and carefree. You’d mainly see people at school, or when walking home. I saw some on weekends too, because I played Little League baseball for the district, but there weren’t many social type events. Occasionally there’d be a party at someone’s house on a Friday or Saturday night, but nothing much happened at those except that people brought records along that got played. Stuff like Vanilla Fudge with their train a coming.

Johanna had long brownish hair while Arnold, the boyfriend, had shortish, almost grey, hair. He wore suits and pointed boots and was forever talking about his music. By 1972 in first year University, he managed to go to the Crazy Horse Strip club, in town, to get some idea of how to put on a show, and then got together 2 saxophone players, a drummer and a bass player, so he could do the vocals, of songs he had written and arranged. They did one show open to the public which I didn’t attend! And as far as I recall they never got together again. They called themselves, Speedboat, though.

Arnold lived with his Austrian parents in a tiny workers cottage even when he went to the university; he studied Philosophy, of all things, and the last time I saw him he was reading Wittgenstein. Maybe early 1973.

There was that Hollywood movie with Johanna’s address of Maud Street as the title; about a very old woman and her grandson, Harold and Maude. [Young, rich, and obsessed with death, Harold finds himself changed forever when he meets lively septuagenarian Maude at a funeral.]

There were quite a few similar coincidences relating to Johanna and Arnold, though, later on. Things to do with street names and personal names and Ethnic background and stuff like that. As if something were stirring ready to awake.

And they were not alone in that experience either!

evolution gives way to science

The root of evolution is change, blind change that nevertheless does follow set-down criteria; they are determined by where the entity is on the upward evolutionary spiral of life.

There can be no downward evolutionary spiral. Life would not “choose” to go backwards on changes already made. To regress.

The “logic” which evolutionary change manifests is truly astonishing. It seems that “life” can externalise support mechanisms in the form of written words, machines and an aural tradition. But you have to differentiate between the goal and “the path.”

I don’t believe evolution has yet reached it’s pinnacle of success but has brought “life” to the current state so that science can play a larger role in all future evolutionary changes. Looked at in other ways, all religions had their basis in pro-evolutionary “words” including the Buddha’s. These “teachings” were able to rapidly progress the living entity to the current state, where for example, we see that some scientifically validated study called “medicine” can cure many ills which in earlier epochs in some cases were said to be caused by possession by Lucifer and his angels. Likewise, food production, clothing, and the rather new invention of transport are all solidly based on scientific knowledge.

The Earth’s population is now over 4 billion people; whereas 25,000 years ago “human’s” numbered less than 2 million. Part of evolution’s logic involved increasing the numbers of humans as well as their life expectancy. To my mind, therefore, all religions acted to further the evolutionary changes and this in no small part embraced all the do’s and don’ts of the male/female relationship. I don’t think that these religions have reached their use-by-date yet, but all the signs suggest they are almost in a death-throw reaction to scientific achievement, which many have used to say that religious scriptures are simply “rough” estimates of underlying scientific truths man had yet to realize. They have used modern rationality to show how many religious rules and regulations have some utility in furthering the life of the species of Humankind.

But such a situation of stasis cannot endure for long. Nature has a way of restoring things to a balance which is not precarious, and to my mind the current situations of religion and also of governments are so finely “balanced” they appear to be on the verge of collapse. Or, on the verge of “going back” to a previous stage where some change took place that brought us to where we are today.

Is there any purpose in life? Beyond the “purely evolutionary”?

Does life have any meaning? Beyond the “purely evolutionary”?

Is “GOD” merely  “unknown laws of nature” which as such impinge on the mind of man to give him revelation and inspiration? Where all actual advances in knowledge have been made using the scientific method, usually involving trial and error?

One thing for sure, it looks like Mankind is at the crossroads where it is being told [encouraged and perhaps even coerced] to “let go” of the past doctrines which helped evolve us to where we all are now, not withstanding “scientific socialism.” Or, e.g. something popular in the 1700s in Britain – Monopoly Capital

what’s wrong Mary Jane?

TRENTON, N.J. — Marijuana could be grown, sold and used in New Jersey under new legislation introduced Monday in the state Senate. Democratic Sen. Nicholas Scutari, the bill’s sponsor, said at a news conference that the measure has little chance of being enacted under Republican Gov. Chris Christie, who opposes legalization efforts.

“It is time to end the detrimental effect these archaic laws are having on our residents and our state,” he said. Scutari said he’s introducing the measure now as a way to lay the groundwork for it to be enacted by the next governor. He pointed to states like Colorado that have successfully implemented recreational marijuana laws, and he called the country’s marijuana prohibition a failure.

Inside the plan to legalize, regulate, and tax marijuana

“I want it to be ready within the first 100 days of potential new governor’s administration,” Scutari said, according to CBS New York.

New Jersey has legalized medical marijuana but Christie, who is leading a White House commission examining the opioid crisis in the country for President Donald Trump, has been a vocal opponent of relaxing marijuana laws. Christie has argued that approving marijuana would clear the way for cocaine and heroin legalization, which has not been proposed. He said he would not agree to “poisoning” young people for the potential tax revenues.

“To me, legalization of marijuana for tax purposes — and that’s the only way people justify it because you can’t justify it any other way — is blood money,” Christie said in November. “That’s what it is to me.”

A recent CBS News poll showed 61 per cent of Americans support the legalization of the drug, up five points from last year.

During last year’s election, California, Massachusetts, Maine and Nevada approved marijuana legalization, while four others — Arkansas, Florida, Montana and North Dakota — voted to establish medical marijuana programs.

Costa Gavras

This week I watched a movie DVD I got from the local library called, Z. “He lives”. Supposedly based on a real story which took place two months before the US JFK assassination; centred in Greece and some local election campaigning there. Sometimes the only place where you can get a taste of the TRUTH is via the media, you see. This director was given an Academy Award for Best Foreign picture. The library system here holds 2 other DVDs he did; MISSING, and The Axe.

MISSING is about a military junta which takes place in a South American country in the 70s, and how one specific American citizen vanishes and ultimately why. Gavras hints that the junta was directed by “special US security forces” and it was they who caused the US citizen in question to go missing, for reasons less to do with the politics of the situation and more with his personal relationship with an attractive American girl one of the “US advisers” has begun to “desire.”

Z, is less subtle though. The “accidental killing” of the liberal democratic candidate takes place in a town square before the eyes of at least a thousand spectators who have gathered to support him, or to protest against him. The candidate has been forewarned that an assassination attempt may be made against him, and this has been passed on to local security people in State police who also have assembled in the square in large numbers.

Then, of course, an accident appears to take place within everyone’s view and the candidate is sent to a local hospital with critical head injuries while his wife is summoned to be by his side in the emergency.

He then passes on due to the extensive nature of his head wounds, and an investigation begins to take shape. State authorities want to finalise it within a few days and have conveniently gathered sworn statements from various witnesses and also from the driver of the van which was blamed for the accident. Everything looked to be pre-arranged, and seemed to be an open and shut case of a drunk driver somehow finding himself in the square accidentally hitting the candidate thus causing him to fall to the ground and hit his head, thus sustaining life threatening injuries.

It’s at this point that the director Gavras introduces the element of the absurd using a local investigative judge who has been given the case to surmise. In Greece, where the events took place, it seems that a judge is always appointed to investigate serious crimes, rather than state police or security authorities. The investigative judge almost accepts the story as told to him, but notices several discrepancies between the driver’s statement and the statement from his passenger. It seems that everyone of note had been drinking at a local bar and all statements were actually made prior to the accident taking place!

The judge investigates how this could be so, and follows a path which brings him to look into a secret organisation more or less run by the head of the local Security agency. It is a quasi religious/monarchist organisation that appears to be aligned against “unhygienic” political ideologies, including the one which the candidate’s party endorsed. This secret society recruits people to its ranks who are largely illiterate by offering them employment opportunities they would otherwise not get, due to their lack of training/education; in other words the secret society mainly targets labourers who are called upon infrequently, to perform a “job” for it which is usually illegal and of a political nature. The film mentioned arson attacks, “protests” against “coloured migrants” and against “religious movements” which do no support the Secret Society’s manifesto.

The investigating judge virtually uncovers a direct conspiracy involving people high in government security which had as its aim, to kill the candidate strictly because of his “liberal” politics.

He brings charges against those implicated by the evidence he has unearthed, such as Conspiracy to Murder, and the film concludes with what those charges resulted in. The so called Generals were literally given a slap on the wrist and a reprimand and the entire case was closed, including against the “passenger” of the vehicle, who the evidence showed had struck the candidate with an iron rod thus causing the fatal injuries. He was not in fact run down by the van at all.

In the real world, approximately 2 months later, the US President J. F. Kennedy was himself assassinated in a public place with many people witnessing it. That took place in Texas, the Lone Star State, on November 22 1963.

Ganser Syndrome…

…is described as behaviour where one assumes the identity of authors of recently read books, or of characters in them, or of anything purchased or acquired containing abstract identity cues and clues.

[the December 1980 murder of John Lennon, ex-Beatle, provided a complete example of how this syndrome operates in the world; Mark David Chapman was a lone wolf ex-security guard who had read the “we all studied this book in high school” Catcher In the Rye and had “become” the central character Holden Caufield. In the book there is no mention of the need to go out and kill famous people, but “the catcher in the rye” has a function which is to save all the “lost” children who approach a cliff and who are going to fall off it. In his so-called defence to his murder charge, Chapman told the court that he was the catcher in the rye of this generation and refused to say any more, or to elaborate.]

(Ganser syndrome is a type of factitious disorder, a mental illness in which a person deliberately and consciously acts as if he or she has a physical or mental illness when he or she is not really sick. People with Ganser syndrome mimic behaviour that is typical of a mental illness, such as schizophrenia. Ganser syndrome is sometimes called “prison psychosis” because it was first observed in prisoners. People with factitious disorders act this way because of an inner need to be seen as ill or injured — not to achieve a clear benefit, such as financial gain. They are even willing to undergo painful or risky tests and operations in order to obtain the sympathy and special attention given to people who are truly ill. Factitious disorders are technically considered mental illnesses because they are associated with severe emotional difficulties. – WebMD)
