Contemplations of Empathy

 “God sells us all things at the price of labor.” ~ Leonardo da Vinci speaking not so cryptically about the law of karma. In all aspects of life, you get what you put in.

When I was growing up, I had quite a hard life and yet I was always told that it will get better. “Don’t worry,” someone would assure me, “it will get better.”

Even my mother, the amazing soul she is, could see the suffering that I was going through and would try to make a promise she knew she could not keep by telling me the same. But for some of us, life won’t necessarily get any better; and depending on your mindset, that might not actually be a bad thing.

There is a certain type of miracle in simply being alive, and at our present time with such a wealth of information available at our fingertips. Anything and everything that our curiosity demands appears available, streaming even. With so much capacity for gaining knowledge in today’s society, ranging from the spiritual to the mundane, it truly presses the notion that each of us incarnated at this particular time for a particular lesson to be learned.

bt-against-empathy.jpg

One way of looking at life is that the more experience a person has, the more opportunities there are for each individual to actually learn from the lessons they were meant to, which in turn enables the growth their soul actually incarnated for, (it sounds a lot easier than it is apparently).

There is this beautiful concept in Eastern Philosophy called Wu Wei, while Taoist in nature, Wu Wei offers a rather stoic perspective of life that I often use to help myself understand the changing energies around me. Wu Wei literally translates the the action of non-action. Or what you are doing when you are doing nothing. This is basically a concept to get you to understand that first without action, there is still action being taken and those actions are your thoughts _ which in turn is the only thing we have under our full control over in life.

Heraclitus explains the natural evolution of the concept of Wu
Wei rather well with his infamous quote, “You can never step into the same river twice.”

Is the main concept trying to be put forth is that nothing remains the same and the only thing that remains constant is the flux.edb585c95bfdf4fd03275a24af54818c

This flux is basically that ever-changing push of life that takes our unrealized potential toward something new, for better or worse depending entirely upon our actions and intentions.

A large part of why I am so grateful for all that has transpired in my life can be attributed to the idea and philosophy continuing from the notion of flux.

When I look back in remembrance of everything, I have to smile and enjoy all of it because they were my experiences to have had. All the loves I burned so brightly for; all the amazing individuals that have crossed my path; the immense struggles that taught me vigilance through the strife; and especially the intense pain that gave me the strength to rise above it all.

Without the struggle, the beauty of our paths would fade in its importance. Yet, thanks to the Laws of Karma (in return for my reactions to this struggle), I was given a great gift of empathic wisdom.

What is empathy? And what does being an empath or having a strong sense of empathic guidance mean?

Understanding empathy and what the difference is between empathy and sympathy is a good way of understanding a lot of the issues stemming from the many different personality types there are out there, which in turn stems from each person’s unique interpretation of reality.

There is only one reality, but with each sentient being capable of their own observation, there are also equal amounts (so likely infinite amounts) of interpretations of the one reality.  And as I showed in article, “The Current Shift in Consciousness“, scientists have learned from observations such as “The Double Slit Experiment” that we really do impact the reality around us simply by observing it. Thus, each of us truly co-creates all that we live and see, and strangely enough, a lot of what we don’t see as well.

Empathy is the phenomenon that occurs when one person triggers an empathic reaction in another based on a mutual understanding coming directly from a certain kind of connection that goes far beyond language. This is a physical, as well as an electrical reaction, one that can even be seen on the EM spectrum and is in actuality caused by a chemical response  in the heart. What some people call our “heart consciousness“.

Having a heightened level of empathy helps connect beings from an understanding of having physically, emotionally as well as spiritually having experienced something individually that connects each person to that same energy of that experience.

These are emotions dealing with a preternatural sense of knowing and feeling thing that a completely different person is feeling and knowing, simultaneously. Somewhat like the metaphysical equivalent of the soul’s emotional deja vu, but reality is not contingent upon our acceptance of its connectivity, it is merely colored by it. Neither is our awareness of any of this.

med_thumb_empathy_cropped.jpg



Sympathy
is more of a psychological reaction to something, the difference of empathy and sympathy in this regard would mean you are dealing with a spiritual and emotional reaction (empathy) versus one solely based on the logic of cause and effect (sympathy). At some point as well in our contrasting of these two terms, we are perhaps simply only dealing with a certain level of vernacular, or how people choose to word things.

But in terms of an empathic versus a sympathetic reaction to something you are typically dealing with an (feminine/yin) emotional versus (male/yang) logistical reaction.  Knowing the difference between these two types of reactions and when to apply them can be very beneficial knowing which reactions are better suited to which problem or unexpected life event.

An example of a sympathetic reaction would be that a teacher feels bad that he has to fail a student that he likes based on his test scores, but the student did not do well enough on his test for a passing grade. The teacher exhibits a healthy level of sympathy in feeling bad for the student, but (using the male dominant logic of cause and effect) logically the teacher understands that the student and the teacher are both merely obliging to the structure and rules of their pedagogy and that an emotional or empathic reaction probably wouldn’t benefit the situation.

Resigning yourself to the fact that the only thing that ever really stays the same is change, allows a certain kind of complacency which helps to align your mind with the power of the Now, which is in turn just the feeling and act of being completely present at that moment in time.

So in essence, it is we that must adapt to that concept that change is not only imminent, but necessary. Which is the same as realizing that you, yourself, are causing your own disappointments in life and could very well be holding yourself back from creating experiences that could change your life profoundly.

Life truly is an expression of your thoughts, which are in turn a half-step of the actions you will take, all of which end up reflecting your character, soul and purpose in life.

Remember that every intention has a purpose; but ask yourself; whose purpose are you serving? And are you ok with that…? If so, then you are in a beautiful place because no one can take that away from you; you are free.

Conversations With My Father: HAARP, MKULTRA & Tesla Technology


“Next, the aerial spraying issue. Yes there is some use of this process, and some of it is related to HAARP. By using the aluminum oxide and barium oxide mixtures, it can act as a “reflector” enabling the HAARP pulses to work over the horizon for imaging and other purposes. But, some of it is not related to HAARP, and I don’t have direct knowledge of the why-for’s.” – Daniel Crew (taken from his disclosure letters).

The following excerpt is from a short communication between my father and I regarding a video on HAARP that I had posted on a social media network only a few years back, yet still fairly naive in certain areas. After our discourse I invite you to take a look into the findings that I and others have found; as well as videos, official documentations and even a copy of the US Patent proving the existence and purported intention behind HAARP technology so that you can make up your own mind as to what exactly this technology is being used for and why so many of us are unaware of such an important part of the modern ascension of technology.

All about HAARP, straight from the horses mouths themseves. If you’ve ever been curious about Nikola Tessla technology (“tessla coil”, free energy, earthquake and the weather modification technology patents that companies like Raytheon obtained) check it out. Interesting documentary, highly informative and definitely one that makes you think…

“HAARP can be used for many purposes. Enormous quantities of energy can be controlled by manipulating the electrical characteristics of the atmosphere. If used as a military weapon this can have a devastating impact on an enemy. HAARP can deliver millions of times more energy to a given area than any other conventional transmitter. The energy can also be aimed at a moving target which should constitute a potential anti-missile system.”

Yup. From first hand experience, most of what some call “transfer technology”, is very advanced and has been in use for many years. Some of the web’s info is bogus, but some is correct. My second hat in the military was as a COMSEC Officer at the G-2/J-2 level, and I was well aware directly and indirectly of some “interesting” capabilities and programs we have in use.

Even with a TS-SBI clearance, I only knew what I was supposed to know; but guys in these programs talk with friends that are cleared. It’s interesting from my perspective to see some of this stuff come out on the web; what its right, and what is not correct.
The HAARP stuff is correct for the most part, but it is not very accurate/precise yet …. Cheers.


OFFICIAL HAARP EXPLANATION

HAARP is a scientific endeavor aimed at studying the properties and behavior of the ionosphere, with particular emphasis on being able to understand and use it to enhance communications and surveillance systems for both civilian and defense purposes.

The HAARP program is committed to developing a world class ionospheric research facility consisting of:
      * The Ionospheric Research Instrument (IRI), a high power transmitter facility operating in the High Frequency (HF) range. The IRI will be used to temporarily excite a limited area of the ionosphere for scientific study.
* A sophisticated suite of scientific (or diagnostic) instruments that will be used to observe the physical processes that occur in the excited region.

Observation of the processes resulting from the use of the IRI in a controlled manner will allow scientists to better understand processes that occur continuously under the natural stimulation of the sun.”

VIDEO BREAKDOWN: How HAARP Is Used In Seismic Warfare

“The United States has three ionospheric heating facilities: the HAARP, the HIPAS, near Fairbanks, Alaska, and (currently offline for modifications) one at the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico. The European Incoherent Scatter Scientific Association (EISCAT) operates an ionospheric heating facility, capable of transmitting over 1 GW (1,000,000,000 watts) effective radiated power (ERP), near Tromsø in Norway. Russia has the Sura ionospheric heating facility, in Vasilsursk near Nizhniy Novgorod, capable of transmitting 190 MW ERP.Another site, operated by military sub-contractor under unknown arrangement between the US and Canadian government, is located near Cape Race, Newfoundland, Canada, at N46° 38.649′ W53° 9.010′ There is minimal or no grid power available at this site, so this may be a passive listening post for the transmissions emitted by other HAARP sites.In August 2002, further support for those critical of HAARP technology came from the State Duma (parliament) of Russia.

The Duma published a critical report on the HAARP written by the international affairs and defense committees, signed by 90 deputies and presented to then President Vladimir Putin. The report claimed that “the U.S. is creating new integral geophysical weapons that may influence the near-Earth medium with high-frequency radio waves … The significance of this qualitative leap could be compared to the transition from cold steel to firearms, or from conventional weapons to nuclear weapons. This new type of weapons differs from previous types in that the near-Earth medium becomes at once an object of direct influence and its component.” However, given the timing of the Russian intervention, it is possible that it was related to a controversy at the time concerning the US withdrawal in June 2002 from the Russian-American Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty. This high level concern is paralleled in the April 1997 statement by the U.S. Secretary of Defense over the power of such electromagnetic weaponry. Russia owns and operates an ionospheric heater system as powerful as the HAARP, called ‘Sura,’ which is located roughly 150 km from the city of Nizhny Novgorod.

The objectives of the HAARP project became the subject of controversy in the mid-1990s, following claims that the antennas could be used as a weapon. A small group of American physicists aired complaints in scientific journals such as Physics and Society, charging that the HAARP could be seeking ways to destroy or disable enemy spacecraft or disrupt communications over large portions of the planet. The physicist critics of the HAARP have had little complaint about the project’s current stage, but have expressed fears that it could in the future be expanded into an experimental weapon, especially given that its funding comes from the Office of Naval Research and the Air Force Research Laboratory.These concerns were amplified by Bernard Eastlund, a physicist who developed some of the concepts behind the HAARP in the 1980s and proposed using high-frequency radio waves to beam large amounts of power into the ionosphere, energizing its electrons and ions in order to disable incoming missiles and knock out enemy satellite communications.

The US military became interested in the idea as an alternative to the laser-based Strategic Defense Initiative. However, Eastlund’s ideas were eventually dropped as SDI itself mutated into the more limited National Missile Defense of today. The contractors selected to build HAARP have denied that any of Eastlund’s patents were used in the development of the project.After the physicists raised early concerns, the controversy was stoked by local activism. In September 1995, a book entitled Angels Don’t Play This HAARP: Advances in Tesla Technology by the former teacher Nick Begich, Jr., son of the late Congressman Nick Begich (D-AK) and brother of U.S. Senator Mark Begich (D-AK), claimed that the project in its present stage could be used for “geophysical warfare.”

Method and apparatus for altering a region in the earth’s atmosphere, ionosphere, and/or magnetosphere

Abstract

A method and apparatus for altering at least one selected region which normally exists above the earth’s surface. The region is excited by electron cyclotron resonance heating to thereby increase its charged particle density. In one embodiment, circularly polarized electromagnetic radiation is transmitted upward in a direction substantially parallel to and along a field line which extends through the region of plasma to be altered. The radiation is transmitted at a frequency which excites electron cyclotron resonance to heat and accelerate the charged particles. This increase in energy can cause ionization of neutral particles which are then absorbed as part of the region thereby increasing the charged particle density of the region.

Description

DESCRIPTION

1. Technical Field

This invention relates to a method and apparatus for altering at least one selected region normally existing above the earth’s surface and more particularly relates to a method and apparatus for altering said at least one region by initially transmitting electromagnetic radiation from the earth’s surface essentially parallel to and along naturally-occurring, divergent magnetic field lines which extend from the earth’s surface through the region or regions to be altered.

2. Background Art

In the late 1950’s, it was discovered that naturally-occuring belts exist at high altitudes above the earth’s surface, and it is now established that these belts result from charged electrons and ions becoming trapped along the magnetic lines of force (field lines) of the earth’s essentially dipole magnetic field. The trapped electrons and ions are confined along the field lines between two magnetic mirrors which exist at spaced apart points along those field lines. The trapped electrons and ions move in helical paths around their particular field lines and “bounce” back and forth between the magnetic mirrors. These trapped electrons and ions can oscillate along the field lines for long periods of time.

In the past several years, substantial effort has been made to understand and explain the phenomena involved in belts of trapped electrons and ions, and to explore possible ways to control and use these phenomena for beneficial purposes. For example, in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s both the United States and U.S.S.R. detonated a series of nuclear devices of various yields to generate large numbers of charged particles at various altitudes, e.g., 200 kilometers (km) or greater. This was done in order to establish and study artifical belts of trapped electrons and ions. These experiments established that at least some of the extraneous electrons and ions from the detonated devices did become trapped along field lines in the earth’s magnetosphere to form artificial belts which were stable for prolonged periods of time. For a discussion of these experiments see “The Radiation Belt and Magnetosphere”, W. N. Hess, Blaisdell Publishing Co., 1968, pps. 155 et sec.

Other proposals which have been advanced for altering existing belts of trapped electrons and ions and/or establishing similar artificial belts include injecting charged particles from a satellite carrying a payload of radioactive beta-decay material or alpha emitters; and injecting charged particles from a satellite-borne electron accelerator. Still another approach is described in U.S. Pat. No. 4,042,196 wherein a low energy ionized gas, e.g., hydrogen, is released from a synchronous orbiting satellite near the apex of a radiation belt which is naturally-occurring in the earth’s magnetosphere to produce a substantial increase in energetic particle precipitation and, under certain conditions, produce a limit in the number of particles that can be stably trapped. This precipitation effect arises from an enhancement of the whistler-mode and ion-cyclotron mode interactions that result from the ionized gas or “cold plasma” injection.

It has also been proposed to release large clouds of barium in the magnetosphere so that photoionization will increase the cold plasma density, thereby producing electron precipitation through enhanced whistler-mode interactions. 

However, in all of the above-mentioned approaches, the mechanisms involved in triggering the change in the trapped particle phenomena must be actually positioned within the affected zone, e.g., the magnetosphere, before they can be actuated to effect the desired change.

The earth’s ionosphere is not considered to be a “trapped” belt since there are few trapped particles therein. The term “trapped” herein refers to situations where the force of gravity on the trapped particles is balanced by magnetic forces rather than hydrostatic or collisional forces. The charged electrons and ions in the ionosphere also follow helical paths around magnetic field lines within the ionosphere but are not trapped between mirrors, as in the case of the trapped belts in the magnetosphere, since the gravitational force on the particles is balanced by collisional or hydrostatic forces.

In recent years, a number of experiments have actually been carried out to modify the ionosphere in some controlled manner to investigate the possibility of a beneficial result. For detailed discussions of these operations see the following papers: (1) Ionospheric Modification Theory; G. Meltz and F. W. Perkins; (2) The Platteville High Power Facility; Carrol et al.; (3) Arecibo Heating Experiments; W. E. Gordon and H. C. Carlson, Jr.; and (4) Ionospheric Heating by Powerful Radio Waves; Meltz et al., all published in Radio Science, Vol. 9, No. 11, November, 1974, at pages 885-888; 889-894; 1041-1047; and 1049-1063, respectively, all of which are incorporated herein by reference. In such experiments, certain regions of the ionosphere are heated to change the electron density and temperature within these regions. This is accomplished by transmitting from earth-based antennae high frequency electromagnetic radiation at a substantial angle to, not parallel to, the ionosphere’s magnetic field to heat the ionospheric particles primarily by ohmic heating. The electron temperature of the ionosphere has been raised by hundreds of degrees in these experiments, and electrons with several electron volts of energy have been produced in numbers sufficient to enhance airglow. Electron concentrations have been reduced by a few percent, due to expansion of the plasma as a result of increased temperature.

In the Elmo Bumpy Torus (EBT), a controlled fusion device at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, all heating is provided by microwaves at the electron cyclotron resonance interaction. A ring of hot electrons is formed at the earth’s surface in the magnetic mirror by a combination of electron cyclotron resonance and stochastic heating. In the EBT, the ring electrons are produced with an average “temperature” of 250 kilo electron volts or kev (2.5.times.10.sup.9 K) and a plasma beta between 0.1 and 0.4; see, “A Theoretical Study of Electron–Cyclotron Absorption in Elmo Bumpy Torus”, Batchelor and Goldfinger, Nuclear Fusion, Vol. 20, No. 4 (1980) pps. 403-418.

Electron cyclotron resonance heating has been used in experiments on the earth’s surface to produce and accelerate plasmas in a diverging magnetic field. Kosmahl et al. showed that power was transferred from the electromagnetic waves and that a fully ionized plasma was accelerated with a divergence angle of roughly 13 degrees. Optimum neutral gas density was 1.7.times.10.sup.14 per cubic centimeter; see, “Plasma Acceleration with Microwaves Near Cyclotron Resonance”, Kosmahl et al., Journal of Applied Physics, Vol. 38, No. 12, Nov., 1967, pps. 4576-4582.

DISCLOSURE OF THE INVENTION

The present invention provides a method and apparatus for altering at least one selected region which normally exists above the earth’s surface. The region is excited by electron cyclotron resonance heating of electrons which are already present and/or artifically created in the region to thereby increase the charged particle energy and ultimately the density of the region.

In one embodiment this is done by transmitting circularly polarized electromagnetic radiation from the earth’s surface at or near the location where a naturally-occurring dipole magnetic field (force) line intersects the earth’s surface. Right hand circular polarization is used in the northern hemisphere and left hand circular polarization is used in the southern hemisphere. The radiation is deliberately transmitted at the outset in a direction substantially parallel to and along a field line which extends upwardly through the region to be altered. The radiation is transmitted at a frequency which is based on the gyrofrequency of the charged particles and which, when applied to the at least one region, excites electron cyclotron resonance within the region or regions to heat and accelerate the charged particles in their respective helical paths around and along the field line. Sufficient energy is employed to cause ionization of neutral particles (molecules of oxygen, nitrogen and the like, particulates, etc.) which then become a part of the region thereby increasing the charged particle density of the region. This effect can further be enhanced by providing artificial particles, e.g., electrons, ions, etc., directly into the region to be affected from a rocket, satellite, or the like to supplement the particles in the naturally-occurring plasma. These artificial particles are also ionized by the transmitted electromagnetic radiation thereby increasing charged particle density of the resulting plasma in the region.

In another embodiment of the invention, electron cyclotron resonance heating is carried out in the selected region or regions at sufficient power levels to allow a plasma present in the region to generate a mirror force which forces the charged electrons of the altered plasma upward along the force line to an altitude which is higher than the original altitude. In this case the relevant mirror points are at the base of the altered region or regions. The charged electrons drag ions with them as well as other particles that may be present. Sufficient power, e.g., 10.sup.15 joules, can be applied so that the altered plasma can be trapped on the field line between mirror points and will oscillate in space for prolonged periods of time. By this embodiment, a plume of altered plasma can be established at selected locations for communication modification or other purposes.

In another embodiment, this invention is used to alter at least one selected region of plasma in the ionosphere to establish a defined layer of plasma having an increased charged particle density. Once this layer is established, and while maintaining the transmission of the main beam of circularly polarized electromagnetic radiation, the main beam is modulated and/or at least one second different, modulated electromagnetic radiation beam is transmitted from at least one separate source at a different frequency which will be absorbed in the plasma layer. The amplitude of the frequency of the main beam and/or the second beam or beams is modulated in resonance with at least one known oscillation mode in the selected region or regions to excite the known oscillation mode to propagate a known frequency wave or waves throughout the ionosphere.

BEST MODES FOR CARRYING OUT THE INVENTION

The earth’s magnetic field is somewhat analogous to a dipole bar magnet. As such, the earth’s magnetic field contains numerous divergent field or force lines, each line intersecting the earth’s surface at points on opposite sides of the Equator. The field lines which intersect the earth’s surface near the poles have apexes which lie at the furthest points in the earth’s magnetosphere while those closest to the Equator have apexes which reach only the lower portion of the magnetosphere.

At various altitudes above the earth’s surface, e.g., in both the ionosphere and the magnetosphere, plasma is naturally present along these field lines. This plasma consists of equal numbers of positively and negatively charged particles (i.e., electrons and ions) which are guided by the field line. It is well established that a charged particle in a magnetic field gyrates about field lines, the center of gyration at any instance being called the “guiding center” of the particle. As the gyrating particle moves along a field line in a uniform field, it will follow a helical path about its guiding center, hence linear motion, and will remain on the field line. Electrons and ions both follow helical paths around a field line but rotate in opposite directions. The frequencies at which the electrons and ions rotate about the field line are called gyromagnetic frequencies or cyclotron frequencies because they are identical with the expression for the angular frequencies of gyration of particles in a cyclotron. The cyclotron frequency of ions in a given magnetic field is less than that of electrons, in inverse proportion to their masses.

If the particles which form the plasma along the earth’s field lines continued to move with a constant pitch angle, often designated “alpha”, they would soon impact on the earth’s surface. Pitch angle alpha is defined as the angle between the direction of the earth’s magnetic field and the velocity (V) of the particle. However, in converging force fields, the pitch angle does change in such a way as to allow the particle to turn around and avoid impact. Consider a particle moving along a field line down toward the earth. It moves into a region of increasing magnetic field strength and therefore sine alpha increases. But sine alpha can only increase to 1.0, at which point, the particle turns around and starts moving up along the field line, and alpha decreases. The point at which the particle turns around is called the mirror point, and there alpha equals ninety degrees. This process is repeated at the other end of the field line where the same magnetic field strength value B, namely Bm, exists. The particle again turns around and this is called the “conjugate point” of the original mirror point. The particle is therefore trapped and bounces between the two magnetic mirrors. The particle can continue oscillating in space in this manner for long periods of time. The actual place where a particle will mirror can be calculated from the following:

wherein:

alpha.sub.o =equatorial pitch angle of particle

B.sub.o =equatorial field strength on a particular field line

B.sub.m =field strength at the mirror point

Recent discoveries have established that there are substantial regions of naturally trapped particles in space which are commonly called “trapped radiation belts”. These belts occur at altitudes greater than about 500 km and accordingly lie in the magnetosphere and mostly above the ionosphere.

The ionosphere, while it may overlap some of the trapped-particle belts, is a region in which hydrostatic forces govern its particle distribution in the gravitational field. Particle motion within the ionosphere is governed by both hydrodynamic and electrodynamic forces. While there are few trapped particles in the ionosphere, nevertheless, plasma is present along field lines in the ionosphere. The charged particles which form this plasma move between collisions with other particles along similar helical paths around the field lines and although a particular particle may diffuse downward into the earth’s lower atmosphere or lose energy and diverge from its original field line due to collisions with other particles, these charged particles are normally replaced by other available charged particles or by particles that are ionized by collision with said particle. The electron density (N.sub.e) of the plasma will vary with the actual conditions and locations involved. Also, neutral particles, ions, and electrons are present in proximity to the field lines.

The production of enhanced ionization will also alter the distribution of atomic and molecular constituents of the atmosphere, most notably through increased atomic nitrogen concentration. The upper atmosphere is normally rich in atomic oxygen (the dominant atmospheric constituent above 200 km altitude), but atomic nitrogen is normally relatively rare. This can be expected to manifest itself in increased airglow, among other effects.

As known in plasma physics, the characteristics of a plasma can be altered by adding energy to the charged particles or by ionizing or exciting additional particles to increase the density of the plasma. One way to do this is by heating the plasma which can be accomplished in different ways, e.g., ohmic, magnetic compression, shock waves, magnetic pumping, electron cyclotron resonance, and the like.

Since electron cyclotron resonance heating is involved in the present invention, a brief discussion of same is in order. Increasing the energy of electrons in a plasma by invoking electron cyclotron resonance heating, is based on a principle similar to that utilized to accelerate charged particles in a cyclotron. If a plasma is confined by a static axial magnetic field of strength B, the charged particles will gyrate about the lines of force with a frequency given, in hertz, as f.sub.g =1.54.times.10.sup.3 B/A, where: B=magnetic field strength in gauss, and A=mass number of the ion.

Suppose a time-varying field of this frequency is superimposed on the static field B confining the plasma, by passage of a radiofrequency current through a coil which is concentric with that producing the axial field, then in each half-cycle of their rotation about the field lines, the charged particles acquire energy from the oscillating electric field associated with the radio frequency. For example, if B is 10,000 gauss, the frequency of the field which is in resonance with protons in a plasma is 15.4 megahertz.

As applied to electrons, electron cyclotron resonance heating requires an oscillating field having a definite frequency determined by the strength of the confining field. The radio-frequency radiation produces time-varying fields (electric and magnetic), and the electric field accelerates the charged particle. The energized electrons share their energy with ions and neutrals by undergoing collisions with these particles, thereby effectively raising the temperature of the electrons, ions, and neutrals. The apportionment of energy among these species is determined by collision frequencies. For a more detailed understanding of the physics involved, see “Controlled Thermonuclear Reactions”, Glasstone and Lovberg, D. Van Nostrand Company, Inc., Princeton, N.J., 1960 and “The Radiation Belt and Magnetosphere”, Hess, Blaisdell Publishing Company, 1968, both of which are incorporated herein by reference.

Referring now to the drawings, the present invention provides a method and apparatus for altering at least one region of plasma which lies along a field line, particularly when it passes through the ionosphere and/or magnetosphere. FIG. 1 is a simplified illustration of the earth 10 and one of its dipole magnetic force or field lines 11. As will be understood, line 11 may be any one of the numerous naturally existing field lines and the actual geographical locations 13 and 14 of line 11 will be chosen based on a particular operation to be carried out. The actual locations at which field lines intersect the earth’s surface is documented and is readily ascertainable by those skilled in the art.

Line 11 passes through region R which lies at an altitude above the earth’s surface. A wide range of altitudes are useful given the power that can be employed by the practice of this invention. The electron cyclotron resonance heating effect can be made to act on electrons anywhere above the surface of the earth. These electrons may be already present in the atmosphere, ionosphere, and/or magnetosphere of the earth, or can be artificially generated by a variety of means such as x-ray beams, charged particle beams, lasers, the plasma sheath surrounding an object such as a missile or meteor, and the like. Further, artificial particles, e.g., electrons, ions, etc., can be injected directly into region R from an earth-launched rocket or orbiting satellite carrying, for example, a payload of radioactive beta-decay material; alpha emitters; an electron accelerator; and/or ionized gases such as hydrogen; see U.S. Pat. No. 4,042,196. The altitude can be greater than about 50 km if desired, e.g., can be from about 50 km to about 800 km, and, accordingly may lie in either the ionosphere or the magnetosphere or both. As explained above, plasma will be present along line 11 within region R and is represented by the helical line 12. Plasma 12 is comprised of charged particles (i.e., electrons and ions) which rotate about opposing helical paths along line 11.

Antenna 15 is positioned as close as is practical to the location 14 where line 11 intersects the earth’s surface. Antenna 15 may be of any known construction for high directionality, for example, a phased array, beam spread angle (.theta.) type. See “The MST Radar at Poker Flat, Alaska”, Radio Science, Vol. 15, No. 2, Mar.-Apr. 1980, pps. 213-223, which is incorporated herein by reference. Antenna 15 is coupled to transmitter 16 which generates a beam of high frequency electromagnetic radiation at a wide range of discrete frequencies, e.g., from about 20 to about 1800 kilohertz (kHz).

Transmitter 16 is powered by power generator means 17 which is preferably comprised of one or more large, commercial electrical generators. Some embodiments of the present invention require large amounts of power, e.g., up to 10.sup.9 to 10.sup.11 watts, in continuous wave or pulsed power. Generation of the needed power is within the state of the art. Although the electrical generators necessary for the practice of the invention can be powered in any known manner, for example, by nuclear reactors, hydroelectric facilities, hydrocarbon fuels, and the like, this invention, because of its very large power requirement in certain applications, is particularly adapted for use with certain types of fuel sources which naturally occur at strategic geographical locations around the earth. For example, large reserves of hydrocarbons (oil and natural gas) exist in Alaska and Canada. In northern Alaska, particularly the North Slope region, large reserves are currently readily available. Alaska and northern Canada also are ideally located geographically as to magnetic latitudes. Alaska provides easy access to magnetic field lines that are especially suited to the practice of this invention, since many field lines which extend to desirable altitudes for this invention intersect the earth in Alaska. Thus, in Alaska, there is a unique combination of large, accessible fuel sources at desirable field line intersections. Further, a particularly desirable fuel source for the generation of very large amounts of electricity is present in Alaska in abundance, this source being natural gas. The presence of very large amounts of clean-burning natural gas in Alaskan latitudes, particularly on the North Slope, and the availability of magnetohydrodynamic (MHD), gas turbine, fuel cell, electrogasdynamic (EGD) electric generators which operate very efficiently with natural gas provide an ideal power source for the unprecedented power requirements of certain of the applications of this invention. For a more detailed discussion of the various means for generating electricity from hydrocarbon fuels, see “Electrical Aspects of Combustion”, Lawton and Weinberg, Clarendon Press, 1969. For example, it is possible to generate the electricity directly at the high frequency needed to drive the antenna system. To do this, typically the velocity of flow of the combustion gases (v), past magnetic field perturbation of dimension d (in the case of MHD), follow the rule:

where f is the frequency at which electricity is generated. Thus, if v=1.78.times.10.sup.6 cm/sec and d=1 cm then electricity would be generated at a frequency of 1.78 mHz.

Put another way, in Alaska, the right type of fuel (natural gas) is naturally present in large amounts and at just the right magnetic latitudes for the most efficient practice of this invention, a truly unique combination of circumstances. Desirable magnetic latitudes for the practice of this invention interest the earth’s surface both northerly and southerly of the equator, particularly desirable latitudes being those, both northerly and southerly, which correspond in magnitude with the magnetic latitudes that encompass Alaska.

Referring now to FIG. 2 a first ambodiment is illustrated where a selected region R.sub.1 of plasma 12 is altered by electron cyclotron resonance heating to accelerate the electrons of plasma 12, which are following helical paths along field line 11.

To accomplish this result, electromagnetic radiation is transmitted at the outset, essentially parallel to line 11 via antenna 15 as right hand circularly polarized radiation wave 20. Wave 20 has a frequency which will excite electron cyclotron resonance with plasma 12 at its initial or original altitude. This frequency will vary depending on the electron cyclotron resonance of region R.sub.1 which, in turn, can be determined from available data based on the altitudes of region R.sub.1, the particular field line 11 being used, the strength of the earth’s magnetic field, etc. Frequencies of from about 20 to about 7200 kHz, preferably from about 20 to about 1800 kHz can be employed. Also, for any given application, there will be a threshhold (minimum power level) which is needed to produce the desired result. The minimum power level is a function of the level of plasma production and movement required, taking into consideration any loss processes that may be dominant in a particular plasma or propagation path.

As electron cyclotron resonance is established in plasma 12, energy is transferred from the electromagnetic radiation 20 into plasma 12 to heat and accelerate the electrons therein and, subsequently, ions and neutral particles. As this process continues, neutral particles which are present within R.sub.1 are ionized and absorbed into plasma 12 and this increases the electron and ion densities of plasma 12. As the electron energy is raised to values of about 1 kilo electron volt (kev), the generated mirror force (explained below) will direct the excited plasma 12 upward along line 11 to form a plume R.sub.2 at an altitude higher than that of R.sub.1.

Plasma acceleration results from the force on an electron produced by a nonuniform static magnetic field (B). The force, called the mirror force, is given by

where .mu. is the electron magnetic moment and .gradient. B is the gradient of the magnetic field, .mu. being further defined as:

where W.sub..perp. is the kinetic energy in the direction perpendicular to that of the magnetic field lines and B is the magnetic field strength at the line of force on which the guiding center of the particle is located. The force as represented by equation (2) is the force which is responsible for a particle obeying equation (1).

Since the magnetic field is divergent in region R.sub.1, it can be shown that the plasma will move upwardly from the heating region as shown in FIG. 1 and further it can be shown that

where the left hand side is the initial electron transverse kinetic energy; the first term on the right is the transverse electron kinetic energy at some point (Y) in the expanded field region, while the final term is the ion kinetic energy parallel to B at point (Y). This last term is what constitutes the desired ion flow. It is produced by an electrostatic field set up by electrons which are accelerated according to Equation (2) in the divergent field region and pulls ions along with them. Equation (3) ignores electron kinetic energy parallel to B because V.sub.e.parallel. .apprxeq.V.sub.i.parallel., so the bulk of parallel kinetic energy resides in the ions because of their greater masses. For example, if an electromagnetic energy flux of from about 1 to about 10 watts per square centimeter is applied to region R, whose altitude is 115 km, a plasma having a density (N.sub.e) of 10.sup.12 per cubic centimeter will be generated and moved upward to region R.sub.2 which has an altitude of about 1000 km. The movement of electrons in the plasma is due to the mirror force while the ions are moved by ambipolar diffusion (which results from the electrostatic field). This effectively “lifts” a layer of plasma 12 from the ionosphere and/or magnetosphere to a higher elevation R.sub.2. The total energy required to create a plasma with a base area of 3 square kilometers and a height of 1000 km is about 3.times.10.sup.13 joules.

FIG. 3 is an idealized representation of movement of plasma 12 upon excitation by electron cyclotron resonance within the earth’s divergent force field. Electrons (e) are accelerated to velocities required to generate the necessary mirror force to cause their upward movement. At the same time neutral particles (n) which are present along line 11 in region R.sub.1 are ionized and become part of plasma 12. As electrons (e) move upward along line 11, they drag ions (i) and neutrals (n) with them but at an angle .theta. of about 13 degrees to field line 11. Also, any particulates that may be present in region R.sub.1, will be swept upwardly with the plasma. As the charged particles of plasma 12 move upward, other particles such as neutrals within or below R.sub.1, move in to replace the upwardly moving particles. These neutrals, under some conditions, can drag with them charged particles.

For example, as a plasma moves upward, other particles at the same altitude as the plasma move horizontally into the region to replace the rising plasma and to form new plasma. The kinetic energy developed by said other particles as they move horizontally is, for example, on the same order of magnitude as the total zonal kinetic energy of stratospheric winds known to exist.

Referring again to FIG. 2, plasma 12 in region R.sub.1 is moved upward along field line 11. The plasma 12 will then form a plume (cross-hatched area in FIG. 2) which will be relatively stable for prolonged periods of time. The exact period of time will vary widely and be determined by gravitational forces and a combination of radiative and diffusive loss terms. In the previous detailed example, the calculations were based on forming a plume by producing 0.sup.+ energies of 2 ev/particle. About 10 ev per particle would be required to expand plasma 12 to apex point C (FIG. 1). There at least some of the particles of plasma 12 will be trapped and will oscillate between mirror points along field line 11. This oscillation will then allow additional heating of the trapped plasma 12 by stochastic heating which is associated with trapped and oscillating particles. See “A New Mechanism for Accelerating Electrons in the Outer Ionosphere” by R. A. Helliwell and T. F. Bell, Journal of Geophysical Research, Vol. 65, No. 6, June, 1960. This is preferably carried out at an altitude of at least 500 km.

The plasma of the typical example might be employed to modify or disrupt microwave transmissions of satellites. If less than total black-out of transmission is desired (e.g., scrambling by phase shifting digital signals), the density of the plasma (N.sub.e) need only be at least about 10.sup.6 per cubic centimeter for a plasma orginating at an altitude of from about 250 to about 400 km and accordingly less energy (i.e., electromagnetic radiation), e.g., 10.sup.8 joules need be provided. Likewise, if the density N.sub.e is on the order of 10.sup.8, a properly positioned plume will provide a reflecting surface for VHF waves and can be used to enhance, interfere with, or otherwise modify communication transmissions. It can be seen from the foregoing that by appropriate application of various aspects of this invention at strategic locations and with adequate power sources, a means and method is provided to cause interference with or even total disruption of communications over a very large portion of the earth. This invention could be employed to disrupt not only land based communications, both civilian and military, but also airborne communications and sea communications (both surface and subsurface). This would have significant military implications, particularly as a barrier to or confusing factor for hostile missiles or airplanes. The belt or belts of enhanced ionization produced by the method and apparatus of this invention, particularly if set up over Northern Alaska and Canada, could be employed as an early warning device, as well as a communications disruption medium. Further, the simple ability to produce such a situation in a practical time period can by itself be a deterring force to hostile action. The ideal combination of suitable field lines intersecting the earth’s surface at the point where substantial fuel sources are available for generation of very large quantitities of electromagnetic power, such as the North Slope of Alaska, provides the wherewithal to accomplish the foregoing in a practical time period, e.g., strategic requirements could necessitate achieving the desired altered regions in time periods of two minutes or less and this is achievable with this invention, especially when the combination of natural gas and magnetohydrodynamic, gas turbine, fuel cell and/or EGD electric generators are employed at the point where the useful field lines intersect the earth’s surface. One feature of this invention which satisfies a basic requirement of a weapon system, i.e., continuous checking of operability, is that small amounts of power can be generated for operability checking purposes. Further, in the exploitation of this invention, since the main electromagnetic beam which generates the enhanced ionized belt of this invention can be modulated itself and/or one or more additional electromagnetic radiation waves can be impinged on the ionized region formed by this invention as will be described in greater detail herein after with respect to FIG. 4, a substantial amount of randomly modulated signals of very large power magnitude can be generated in a highly nonlinear mode. This can cause confusion of or interference with or even complete disruption of guidance systems employed by even the most sophisticated of airplanes and missiles. The ability to employ and transmit over very wide areas of the earth a plurality of electromagnetic waves of varying frequencies and to change same at will in a random manner, provides a unique ability to interfere with all modes of communications, land, sea, and/or air, at the same time. Because of the unique juxtaposition of usable fuel source at the point where desirable field lines intersect the earth’s surface, such wide ranging and complete communication interference can be achieved in a resonably short period of time. Because of the mirroring phenomenon discussed hereinabove, it can also be prolonged for substantial time periods so that it would not be a mere transient effect that could simply be waited out by an opposing force. Thus, this invention provides the ability to put unprecedented amounts of power in the earth’s atmosphere at strategic locations and to maintain the power injection level, particularly if random pulsing is employed, in a manner far more precise and better controlled than heretofore accomplished by the prior art, particularly by the detonation of nuclear devices of various yeilds at various altitudes. Where the prior art approaches yielded merely transitory effects, the unique combination of fuel and desirable field lines at the point where the fuel occurs allows the establishment of, compared to prior art approaches, precisely controlled and long-lasting effects which cannot, practically speaking, simply be waited out. Further, by knowing the frequencies of the various electromagnetic beams employed in the practice of this invention, it is possible not only to interfere with third party communications but to take advantage of one or more such beams to carry out a communications network even though the rest of the world’s communications are disrupted. Put another way, what is used to disrupt another’s communications can be employed by one knowledgeable of this invention as a communications network at the same time. In addition, once one’s own communication network is established, the far-reaching extent of the effects of this invention could be employed to pick up communication signals of other for intelligence purposes. Thus, it can be seen that the disrupting effects achievable by this invention can be employed to benefit by the party who is practicing this invention since knowledge of the various electromagnetic waves being employed and how they will vary in frequency and magnitude can be used to an advantage for positive communication and eavesdropping purposes at the same time. However, this invention is not limited to locations where the fuel source naturally exists or where desirable field lines naturally intersect the earth’s surface. For example, fuel, particularly hydrocarbon fuel, can be transported by pipeline and the like to the location where the invention is to be practiced.

FIG. 4 illustrates another embodiment wherein a selected region of plasma R.sub.3 which lies within the earth’s ionosphere is altered to increase the density thereof whereby a relatively stable layer 30 of relatively dense plasma is maintained within region R.sub.3. Electromagnetic radiation is transmitted at the outset essentially parallel to field line 11 via antenna 15 as a right hand circularly polarized wave and at a frequency (e.g., 1.78 megahertz when the magnetic field at the desired altitude is 0.66 gauss) capable of exciting electron cyclotron resonance in plasma 12 at the particular altitude of plasma 12. This causes heating of the particles (electrons, ions, neutrals, and particulates) and ionization of the uncharged particles adjacent line 11, all of which are absorbed into plasma 12 to increase the density thereof. The power transmitted, e.g., 2.times.10.sup.6 watts for up to 2 minutes heating time, is less than that required to generate the mirror force F required to move plasma 12 upward as in the previous embodiment.

While continuing to transmit electromagnetic radiation 20 from antenna 15, a second electromagnetic radiation beam 31, which is at a defined frequency different from the radiation from antenna 15, is transmitted from one or more second sources via antenna 32 into layer 30 and is absorbed into a portion of layer 30 (cross-hatched area in FIG. 4). The electromagnetic radiation wave from antenna 32 is amplitude modulated to match a known mode of oscillation f.sub.3 in layer 30. This creates a resonance in layer 30 which excites a new plasma wave 33 which also has a frequency of f.sub.3 and which then propogates through the ionosphere. Wave 33 can be used to improve or disrupt communications or both depending on what is desired in a particular application. Of course, more than one new wave 33 can be generated and the various new waves can be modulated at will and in a highly nonlinear fashion.

FIG. 5 shows apparatus useful in this invention, particularly when those applications of this invention are employed which require extremely large amounts of power. In FIG. 5 there is shown the earth’s surface 40 with a well 41 extending downwardly thereinto until it penetrates hydrocarbon producing reservoir 42. Hydrocarbon reservoir 42 produces natural gas alone or in combination with crude oil. Hydrocarbons are produced from reservoir 42 through well 41 and wellhead 43 to a treating system 44 by way of pipe 45. In treater 44, desirable liquids such as crude oil and gas condensates are separated and recovered by way of pipe 46 while undesirable gases and liquids such as water, H.sub.2 S, and the like are separated by way of pipe 47. Desirable gases such as carbon dioxide are separated by way of pipe 48, and the remaining natural gas stream is removed from treater 44 by way of pipe 49 for storage in conventional tankage means (not shown) for future use and/or use in an electrical generator such as a magnetohydrodynamic, gas turbine, fuel cell or EGD generator 50. Any desired number and combination of different types of electric generators can be employed in the practice of this invention. The natural gas is burned in generator 50 to produce substantial quantities of electricity which is then stored and/or passed by way of wire 51 to a transmitter 52 which generates the electromagnetic radiation to be used in the method of this invention. The electromagnetic radiation is then passed by way of wire 53 to antenna 54 which is located at or near the end of field line 11. Antenna 54 sends circularly polarized radiation wave 20 upwards along field line 11 to carry out the various methods of this invention as described hereinabove.

Of course, the fuel source need not be used in its naturally-occurring state but could first be converted to another second energy source form such as hydrogen, hydrazine and the like, and electricity then generated from said second energy source form.

It can be seen from the foregoing that when desirable field line 11 intersects earth’s surface 40 at or near a large naturally-occurring hydrocarbon source 42, exceedingly large amounts of power can be very efficiently produced and transmitted in the direction of field lines. This is particularly so when the fuel source is natural gas and magnetohydrodynamic generators are employed. Further, this can all be accomplished in a relatively small physical area when there is the unique coincidence of fuel source 42 and desirable field line 11. Of course, only one set of equipment is shown in FIG. 5 for sake of simplicity. For a large hydrocarbon reservoir 42, a plurality of wells 41 can be employed to feed one or more storage means and/or treaters and as large a number of generators 55 as needed to power one or more transmitters 52 and one or more antennas 54. Since all of the apparatus 44 through 54 can be employed and used essentially at the sight where naturally-occurring fuel source 42 is located, all the necessary electromagnetic radiation 20 is generated essentially at the same location as fuel source 42. This provides for a maximum amount of usable electromagnetic radiation 20 since there are no significant storage or transportation losses to be incurred. In other words, the apparatus is brought to the sight of the fuel source where desirable field line 11 intersects the earth’s surface 40 on or near the geographical location of fuel source 42, fuel source 42 being at a desirable magnetic latitude for the practice of this invention, for example, Alaska.

The generation of electricity by motion of a conducting fluid through a magnetic field, i.e., magnetohydrodynamics (MHD), provides a method of electric power generation without moving mechanical parts and when the conducting fluid is a plasma formed by combustion of a fuel such as natural gas, an idealized combination of apparatus is realized since the very clean-burning natural gas forms the conducting plasma in an efficient manner and the thus formed plasma, when passed through a magnetic field, generates electricity in a very efficient manner. Thus, the use of fuel source 42 to generate a plasma by combustion thereof for the generation of electricity essentially at the site of occurrence of the fuel source is unique and ideal when high power levels are required and desirable field lines 11 intersect the earth’s surface 40 at or near the site of fuel source 42. A particular advantage for MHD generators is that they can be made to generate large amounts of power with a small volume, light weight device. For example, a 1000 megawatt MHD generator can be construed using superconducting magnets to weigh roughly 42,000 pounds and can be readily air lifted.

This invention has a phenomenal variety of possible ramifications and potential future developments. As alluded to earlier, missile or aircraft destruction, deflection, or confusion could result, particularly when relativistic particles are employed. Also, large regions of the atmosphere could be lifted to an unexpectedly high altitude so that missiles encounter unexpected and unplanned drag forces with resultant destruction or deflection of same. Weather modification is possible by, for example, altering upper atmosphere wind patterns or altering solar absorption patterns by constructing one or more plumes of atmospheric particles which will act as a lens or focusing device. Also as alluded to earlier, molecular modifications of the atmosphere can take place so that positive environmental effects can be achieved. Besides actually changing the molecular composition of an atmospheric region, a particular molecule or molecules can be chosen for increased presence. For example, ozone, nitrogen, etc. concentrations in the atmosphere could be artificially increased. Similarly, environmental enhancement could be achieved by causing the breakup of various chemical entities such as carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrous oxides, and the like. Transportation of entities can also be realized when advantage is taken of the drag effects caused by regions of the atmosphere moving up along diverging field lines. Small micron sized particles can be then transported, and, under certain circumstances and with the availability of sufficient energy, larger particles or objects could be similarly affected. Particles with desired characteristics such as tackiness, reflectivity, absorptivity, etc., can be transported for specific purposes or effects. For example, a plume of tacky particles could be established to increase the drag on a missile or satellite passing therethrough. Even plumes of plasma having substantially less charged particle density than described above will produce drag effects on missiles which will affect a lightweight (dummy) missile in a manner substantially different than a heavy (live) missile and this affect can be used to distinguish between the two types of missiles. A moving plume could also serve as a means for supplying a space station or for focusing vast amount of sunlight on selected portions of the earth. Surveys of global scope could also be realized because the earth’s natural magnetic field could be significantly altered in a controlled manner by plasma beta effects resulting in, for example, improved magnetotelluric surveys. Electromagnetic pulse defenses are also possible. The earth’s magnetic field could be decreased or disrupted at appropriate altitudes to modify or eliminate the magnetic field in high Compton electron generation (e.g., from high altitude nuclear bursts) regions. High intensity, well controlled electrical fields can be provided in selected locations for various purposes. For example, the plasma sheath surrounding a missile or satellite could be used as a trigger for activating such a high intensity field to destroy the missile or satellite. Further, irregularities can be created in the ionosphere which will interfere with the normal operation of various types of radar, e.g., synthetic aperture radar. The present invention can also be used to create artificial belts of trapped particles which in turn can be studied to determine the stability of such parties. Still further, plumes in accordance with the present invention can be formed to simulate and/or perform the same functions as performed by the detonation of a “heave” type nuclear device without actually having to detonate such a device. Thus it can be seen that the ramifications are numerous, far-reaching, and exceedingly varied in usefulness.

THE ASCENDING OF CONSCIOUSNESS

Starting with a short music video inspired by the ascension process; the final segment in my philosophical trilogy, “The Ascension of Consciousness” addresses the very important question and alternative media fed “hype” of the upcoming and current ascension of consciousness for humanity; namely whether if is it real, if it is it measurable and has this happened before?

This segments concludes with the ideas of Universally known truths with the proposal of consciousness in of itself as the root for all measurement and offers an anecdote for the personal involvement in assisting our world with the very real changes ahead.

Please enjoy and check back soon for my first book, “The Essence of Prophecy”, due out in November as well as new videos coming this December.

The word enlightenment conjures up the idea of some superhuman accomplishment, and the ego likes to keep it that way, but it is simply your natural state of felt oneness with Being. It is a state of connectedness with something immeasurable and indestructible, something that, almost paradoxically, is essentially you and yet is much greater than you. It is finding your true nature beyond name and form. – E. Tolle

An Introduction Into The Essentials of Sacred Geometry


The second of my video trilogy continues the examination of Universal Truths into the realm of Sacred Geometry. In my last segment, “The Fear of Truth & The Death of Ego”, I hypothesized that two of the only Universal Truths (an absolute truth to be known with certainty); are that of Fear and Love.

Today I expand upon this notion and add a third Universal Truth; the biology, history and essentials of Sacred Geometry. Understanding Sacred Geometry will not only expand your consciousness, but will also facilitate a greater understanding of all life-forms and mathematical communications in of itself as a Universal Language.

“The study of geometry, which descends to us from Pythagoras, is a meditation on the harmony of the cosmic order, and it is a meditation upon music. If you meditate upon geometry instead of just learning it in a linear way, you can actually hear the music of the spheres, because the geometric forms will key the eye and the ear to the inner sound. Every line that you draw,…you have the carryover from the spiritual octaves to the physical ….

So geometry, and mathematics and calculus, make the transition from the concrete to the non-concrete. It is one of the highest studies that anyone can pursue. In fact, whenever I study these fields I am so impressed by the scientific information that comes tumbling down from the higher octaves. And at one point as I was meditating on these areas, there was so much information coming, that I determined to direct my attention away from it because I realized that the world was not ready for that teaching; there was far too much power in the understanding of the universe. And there it is, very plainly and very simply there, for anyone who can make the attunement.

The harmony of the world is made manifest in Form and Number, and the heart and soul and all the poetry of Natural Philosophy are embodied in the concept of mathematical beauty.” – Sir D’Arcy Wentworth Thompson (1860-1948)

In nature, we find patterns, designs and structures from the most minuscule particles, to expressions of life discernible by human eyes, to the greater cosmos. These inevitably follow geometrical archetypes, which reveal to us the nature of each form and its vibrational resonances. They are also symbolic of the underlying metaphysical principle of the inseparable relationship of the part to the whole. It is this principle of oneness underlying all geometry that permeates the architecture of all form in its myriad diversity. This principle of interconnectedness, inseparability and union provides us with a continuous reminder of our relationship to the whole, a blueprint for the mind to the sacred foundation of all things created.

The Sphere

Starting with what may be the simplest and most perfect of forms, the sphere is an ultimate expression of unity, completeness, and integrity. There is no point of view given greater or lesser importance, and all points on the surface are equally accessible and regarded by the center from which all originate. Atoms, cells, seeds, planets, and globular star systems all echo the spherical paradigm of total inclusion, acceptance, simultaneous potential and fruition, the macrocosm and microcosm.

The Circle

The circle is a two-dimensional shadow of the sphere which is regarded throughout cultural history as an icon of the ineffable oneness; the indivisible fulfillment of the Universe. All other symbols and geometries reflect various aspects of the profound and consummate perfection of the circle, sphere and other higher dimensional forms of these we might imagine.

The ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter, Pi, is the original transcendental and irrational number. (Pi equals about 3.14159265358979323846264338327950288419716939937511…) It cannot be expressed in terms of the ratio of two whole numbers, or in the language of sacred symbolism, the essence of the circle exists in a dimension that transcends the linear rationality that it contains. Our holistic perspectives, feelings and intuitions encompass the finite elements of the ideas that are within them, yet have a greater wisdom than can be expressed by those ideas alone.

The Point

At the center of a circle or a sphere is always an infinitesimal point. The point needs no dimension, yet embraces all dimension. Transcendence of the illusions of time and space result in the point of here and now, our most primal light of consciousness. The proverbial “light at the end of the tunnel” is being validated by the ever-increasing literature on so-called “near-death experiences”. If our essence is truly spiritual omnipresence, then perhaps the “point” of our being “here” is to recognize the oneness we share, validating all “individuals” as equally precious and sacred aspects of that one.

Life itself as we know it is inextricably interwoven with geometric forms, from the angles of atomic bonds in the molecules of the amino acids, to the helical spirals of DNA, to the spherical prototype of the cell, to the first few cells of an organism which assume vesical, tetrahedral, and star (double) tetrahedral forms prior to the diversification of tissues for different physiological functions. Our human bodies on this planet all developed with a common geometric progression from one to two to four to eight primal cells and beyond.

Almost everywhere we look, the mineral intelligence embodied within crystalline structures follows a geometry unfaltering in its exactitude. The lattice patterns of crystals all express the principles of mathematical perfection and repetition of a fundamental essence, each with a characteristic spectrum of resonances defined by the angles, lengths and relational orientations of its atomic components.

The Square Root of Two

The square root of 2 embodies a profound principle of the whole being more than the sum of its parts. (The square root of two equals about 1.414213562…) The orthogonal dimensions (axes at right angles) form the conjugal union of the horizontal and vertical which give birth to the greater offspring of the hypotenuse. The new generation possesses the capacity for synthesis, growth, integration and reconciliation of polarities by spanning both perspectives equally. The root of two originating from the square leads to a greater unity, a higher expression of its essential truth, faithful to its lineage.

The fact that the root is irrational expresses the concept that our higher dimensional faculties can’t always necessarily be expressed in lower order dimensional terms – e.g. “And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.” (from the Gospel of St. John, Chapter 1, verse 5). By the same token, we have the capacity to surpass the genetically programmed limitations of our ancestors, if we can shift into a new frame of reference (i.e. neutral with respect to prior axes, yet formed from that matrix-seed conjugation. Our dictionary refers to the word matrix both as a womb and an array (or grid lattice). Our language has some wonderful built-in metaphors if we look for them!

The Golden Ratio

The golden ratio (a.k.a. phi ratio a.k.a. sacred cut a.k.a. golden mean a.k.a. divine proportion) is another fundamental measure that seems to crop up almost everywhere, including crops. (The golden ratio is about 1.618033988749894848204586834365638117720309180…) The golden ratio is the unique ratio such that the ratio of the whole to the larger portion is the same as the ratio of the larger portion to the smaller portion. As such, it symbolically links each new generation to its ancestors, preserving the continuity of relationship as the means for retracing its lineage.

The golden ratio (phi) has some unique properties and makes some interesting appearances:

  • phi = phi^2 – 1; therefore 1 + phi = phi^2; phi + phi^2 = phi^3; phi^2 + phi^3= phi^4; ad infinitum.
  • phi = (1 + square root(5)) / 2 from quadratic formula, 1 + phi = phi^2.
  • phi = 1 + 1/(1 + 1/(1 + 1/(1 + 1/(1 + 1/(1 + 1/…)))))
  • phi = 1 + square root(1 + square root(1 + square root(1 + square root(1 + square root(1 + …)))))
  • phi = (sec 72)/2 =(csc 18)/2 = 1/(2 cos 72) = 1/(2 sin 18) = 2 sin 54 = 2 cos 36 = 2/(csc 54) = 2/ (sec 36) for all you trigonometry enthusiasts.
  • phi = the ratio of segments in a 5-pointed star (pentagram) considered sacred to Plato and Pythagoras in their mystery schools. Note that each larger (or smaller) section is related by the phi ratio, so that a power series of the golden ratio raised to successively higher (or lower) powers is automatically generated: phi, phi^2, phi^3, phi^4, phi^5, etc.
  • phi = apothem to bisected base ratio in the Great Pyramid of Giza
  • phi = ratio of adjacent terms of the famous Fibonacci Series evaluated at infinity; the Fibonacci Series is a rather ubiquitous set of numbers that begins with one and one and each term thereafter is the sum of the prior two terms, thus: 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144… (interesting that the 12th term is 12 “raised to a higher power”, which appears prominently in a vast collection of metaphysical literature)

The mathematician credited with the discovery of this series is Leonardo Pisano Fibonacci and there is a publication devoted to disseminating information about its unique mathematical properties, The Fibonacci Quarterly

Fibonacci ratios appear in the ratio of the number of spiral arms in daisies, in the chronology of rabbit populations, in the sequence of leaf patterns as they twist around a branch, and a myriad of places in nature where self-generating patterns are in effect. The sequence is the rational progression towards the irrational number embodied in the quintessential golden ratio.

This most aesthetically pleasing proportion, phi, has been utilized by numerous artists since (and probably before!) the construction of the Great Pyramid. As scholars and artists of eras gone by discovered (such as Leonardo da Vinci, Plato, and Pythagoras), the intentional use of these natural proportions in art of various forms expands our sense of beauty, balance and harmony to optimal effect. Leonardo da Vinci used the Golden Ratio in his painting of The Last Supper in both the overall composition (three vertical Golden Rectangles, and a decagon (which contains the golden ratio) for alignment of the central figure of Jesus.

The outline of the Parthenon at the Acropolis near Athens, Greece is enclosed by a Golden Rectangle by design.

The first of three interlocking segments of my personal philosophical entries pertaining to the ontological quest for truth; specifically what can be known with certainty?

Are there any absolute truths that can be known or is everything that we know truly a dream made reality by the immense power of our consciousness?

In my first video, “The Fear of Truth & The Death of Ego,” I examine the natural Fear most humans experience towards learning and contemplating new possibilities both in a historical and biological context.


Next I end the segment by offering my assertion of the ego; it’s origin, use, and why a complete so called “death” of the human ego is not necessarily possible nor helpful in a biological sense.

I hope these videos will assist in the coming and current rise of consciousness, please feel free to share and spread these videos to all your friends and family. We live in a beautifully integral time, namaste.

My “GOD” Theorem

“Question with boldness even the existence of a god; because if there be one he must approve of the homage of reason more than that of blindfolded fear.” – Thomas Jefferson

Discussions, theories and discourses on religion or theological aspects are rarely clear or cut and dry; if they were, many of us would each be in agreement with the same  idea or theory thereof. That being stated, I would like to write out my own theory for why there is only one entity that some call “god” and my supporting thesis as to why we are all part of this same entity.

God (or fill in the “___” with your own desired nomenclature) is only capable of being ONE physical entity; meaning there is only ONE source for everything.

There is a great story that I will paraphrase for my use in explaining the perspective that most of us begin with; which is the idea of rejecting infinite regress, meaning that one does not believe in time as an endless stream, which would demand a “cause” & “effect” and “beginning” & end”.

Two Greek philosophers were curious about Atlas, the deity charged with holding the great weight of the world upon his shoulders.

As the one philosopher queried, “If Atlas holds up the Earth, what holds up Atlas?”

To which the other philosopher answered, “Well that’s simple my friend, Atlas is standing upon the back of a giant tortoise shell.”

At this the first man pondered for a moment and then asked again, “But then what does that tortoise stand on?”

As if anticipating this question the philosopher smiled and said, “Why, my good man! Its tortoises all the way down!”

I believe in the rejection of infinite regress is incorrect and that time is really just an illusion caused in part by our dualistic perspective and the necessity of mass adhering to the vibrational frequency of our third dimensional constructs. This partly explains why the greatest minds of our time and were never able to get past the issues of “time”, “god”, or the “Big-Bang” in most philosophical contexts – nor were they able to fully convince others of their ideas either.

So; if we are to accept that “time” is merely a fallacy demanded by our need to measure the immeasurable and that there is no true beginning nor end to anything (think of the very pertinent looping shape of the infinity symbol) we are finally able to let go of the largest hurdles in contemplating the divine. Continuing with this pattern of thought, let us also then accept the postulation that time is not inherent in the Universe and so there never was a beginning to “God” nor will there be an end. By accepting this we are able to somewhat fix the problems we have when trying to explain the origins of the Universe; as we always get caught up on the beginning of things.

“A twisted ring of gas, one that stretches more than 600 light-years across the heart of the Milky Way galaxy, has been discovered by astronomers using the powerful infrared Herschel space telescope. The gaseous ring, which gives birth to new stars, has a kink in the middle, such that it looks like a cosmic infinity symbol.” SPACE.com

Moving on from this we now have to assume that there is a FIRST source, or a FIRST MOVER, or God if you will (that which is unmoved by others, uncontrolled by others and thus not contingent upon the existence of anything other than itself) … and so now there is 1.

From this 1 (“god”) we get everything.The proof of this is the idea that “god” made us all from itself; if you can accept the above postulation; then you must also believe that “god” was/is the only and first entity that had to use its own fabric/self to create everything else. If this was not the case then we would instead have 2 original entities; “god” and the “fabric” or the material from which “god” created all forms of life. If there were 2 original entities (god & the fabric), we would the have to reject infinite regress again because something would have had to have “made” the fabric and “god” or one to have come before the other; which again would not make sense within the parameters of infinite regress.

Therefore, “god”, or the Source, must have made all forms of life, matter and frequencies from its own material; else again there would have been two sources. Thus we now have a passable explanation for the idea that there not only a first source – often referred to as God – but that we are all made of this being and thus… are all god.

An essay examining the misuse, misapplication and misinformation pertaining to science of agriculture.  By  Eric Anthony Crew

Allow yourself a moment to conceptualize a pesticide strain so powerful that we could easily eliminate the need for any new chemicals to be developed. Such a world would no longer have the bothersome insects that eat our fruits, and our gardens would remain free of predators or gopher holes that irritatingly thread themselves throughout the soil. But what are the implications of undertaking these actions? Rachel Carson, author and founder of the conservationist movement, answers this question in her article, “The Obligation to Endure,” by saying that if we are to continue to kill so many life forms indiscriminately, we should expect the very real possibility of human extinction. This is because of what these chemicals are and how long it takes nature to react to its use and misuse.  The misapplication of these dangerous chemicals creates an imbalance in nature that will end up devastating all of Earth’s life forms if we do not step in and start the process of checks and balances in this generation.

The deadly pesticides and herbicides that are constantly used today are creating a chain of death that continue for years after they are applied and have far reaching detrimental affects that are often not taken into account as a whole. In this civilization deemed the “information age,” we neglect to heed the warnings of numerous specialists that often tell us the very same message, that we are killing our world at a rate that will leave nothing but destruction for our future generations. The nature of the beast we call man is to change its environment so radically and swiftly that nature has had to learn to adapt itself to us, which, by all accounts is relatively new to the external factors that influence the evolutionary process. Carson’s article gave a detailed abridgment of the agricultural development of pesticides, herbicides and even other toxic pollutants that began to sprout up just before her time in the early 1960’s. While many could argue that an article written decades ago would likely have little to no relevance for today’s booming agricultural-based society, after reading her concise points most readers are left wondering why these problems are still around today.


With the advent of any dangerous chemical also comes the possibility of its proliferation, a consideration that appears lost on most individuals that use them. The side-effects from the spraying of pesticides have become such a constant in our mass-production of agricultural goods, that most people fail to even recognize when they are occurring. These chemicals deposit into the soil and later reach our insect and animal life, gallivanting its way from organism to organism only to eventually show itself in our water, air and food supply.

To better understand how we could end up destroying ourselves by the very creations we use to subdue other living creatures, it is necessary to investigate what these pollutants actually do to our environs. The chapter entitled “Environment Pollution” from the book, Chemistry: Foundations and Applications,gives a broad overview of these pollutants are and how they affect the world. Environmental pollution is the release of chemicals or chemical byproducts that cause harm to the wellbeing of the ecology and environment. These pollutants are often divided into certain categories: H20, atmospheric and soil pollutes, which are then listed as either organic or inorganic in nature . Toxicology is the study of effects of poisons on the human body. The main assertion of toxicology states that the dosage of certain chemicals determines the overall effects and postulates that just about any chemical at high dosages are dangerous for the cellular development of any living organism (“Environment“).

Even with all of these factors now coming together about the use of pesticides and the link to toxicity and death, many people still remain unconvinced that there is a need for immediate change. However, what is not often considered is to what level these pesticide and herbicides are already ingested, breathed and lived in within our daily lives. People just assume that governments and corporations will not be constantly poisoning ourselves along with the world just to make money. It is this assumption and the negligence of observing just how deeply these pollutes have become ingrained in our world that will be our undoing.

A perfect example of how blind we have become to the overuse of these chemicals and how embedded they are in our lives is by looking at the insertion of pesticides and herbicides into the genetic makeup of the very food we eat. Certain companies have decided to combat the pest problem to the extent of modifying their crops on a wholly different level by the manipulation of genetics. Ana Campoy of the Wall Street Journal reported on a historic chemical-company merge in her article, “Seed Giants Join Forces; Corn Made by Dow, Monsanto to Fight Insects and Weeds.” In accordance to the agreement, the companies will collaborate on a seed that combines “eight different herbicide tolerance and insect-protection genes into top-performing hybrids for the most complete control ever available.” The finalized creation will be protected against any threats from both above and below the soil. Monsanto and Dow agreed to pay royalties to each other for any seeds they sell using the other’s traits. Campoy reported on Monsanto’s reaction to this, “It’s an environment where you can add things you wouldn’t have independently and create new products that the industry would not have seen,” said Carl Casale, vice president of operations for Monsanto. Campoy also continued by writing Andrew Liveris, the Dow Chief Executive’s commentary concerning this rousing new agreement, “This is game-changing technology… When you put in a couple more genes, unexpected things can happen.”

If it weren’t bad enough that these chemicals are inherent in the soil we use and the air we breathe, now we must also ingest them at the genetic level. As stated earlier with the theme of toxicology, any exposure in abundance to these poisons will negatively affect living creatures. These chemical giants are even admitting that they do not know what will happen from the merging process nor are they offering any studies of these new chemicals to alleviate any concerns.

The fact that the government is lacking a responsible effort to study the long-term effects of these inventions is alarming to say the least. In fact, the only available studies of the long-term effects of these chemicals is in its aerosol form. The Food and Drug Administration states that they have been working diligently to reduce the pesticide residue in the imports from other countries caused by these aerosol sprays. According to the article, “Scaling Up Political Ecology: The Case of Illegal Pesticides on Fresh Vegetables Imported into the United States, 1996-2006,written by Ryan E. Galt, states that the adherence to the regulations of food and pesticidal residue creates a major health concern for the entire agricultural world. The main points of the article are that domestic vegetables have lower adverse residues than that of imported products, and that there are 14 main pesticides from an allotted 476 testable chemicals make up more than two-thirds of all violations (Galt).

Now it is clear that there is not only a continued use of these dangerous toxins, but also that there is an actual level deemed safe for ingestion based on region and country. Each of these factors still remains isolated from each other, however, when looked at by specialists trying to decide how to regulate certain aspects of chemical production and use. Keeping in mind that farmers have been dealing with pests for thousands of years without the help of such potent forces, it becomes a question then of why humans are so arrogant to think that we can continue to use these products without worry of any eventual effect on ourselves, let alone the rest of the world.


The answer can be found in the lack of proper media coverage on the use of these chemicals, especially concerning the implementation of genetically modified organisms. After looking into what the word GMO actually entails and researching the topic further, we begin to get a bigger picture of why there are so many citizens that are wholly unconcerned about the subject. The website, GMO-Compass,tells us that there is a necessity for these particular developments in the scientific community, especially concerning agriculture and the supply and demand of its consumers. Such developments proposed as necessary for humanity to advance, include the invention of genetically modified organisms, or GMO’s. GMO-Compass effectively describes the laws, definitions and history of genetically modified organisms to the average consumer. The site, financed by the European Union itself, suggests that the coexistence of GMO products and natural or organic products are a necessary and pertinent part of our society’s future (GMO-Compass).

The American conglomerate Monsanto, created GMO’s with the genetic predisposition to be completely unaffected by  the use of certain pesticides, namely its own product Round Up. These Round Up-Ready organisms actually contain a protein developed from a virus cell that the FDA claims is similar in nature to the proteins that humans have ingested for millennia. If you are to look at the reports of said hypotheses, you may be hard pressed to find one that isn’t paid for by the company itself. The benefits then appear to be only for the company’s profit and production of seed; which also carry with it a unique genetic coding called the “Terminator Gene,” in which the scientists have actually devolved the crops from being able to reseed themselves annually after the fruition of the crops. This means that the farmers would have to return to Monsanto year after year for the ability to have such “pest-free” crops.

The idea behind GMO’s originated in the mass production of certain staple foods to be developed for the hungry and starving Third-World Countries, which actually called for the “deregulation” of the years of testing the effects of these organisms on human life. If you were a politician in the 80’s and even into the Clinton administration of the 90’s, you were practically considered a heretic for suggesting such tests to be conducted, these processes of which have been part of the Scientific Method for centuries. Yet after more than twenty years of application and development the notion that these creations were for the feeding of the hungry seems to have mysteriously vanished. These countries are still lacking food resources and our developed countries have actually been projecting results of over-production. If it were truly the intention for these products to assist these nations it is clear now that something that went terribly wrong along the way. It appears that the corporations would rather continue to globalize and create profit than to assist in helping humanity rid itself of the pestering element of hunger.

Returning to Rachel Carson’s “Obligation to Endure,”we are reminded to look at the bigger picture, to imagine how we will leave the future and our generations of children that will have to deal with nature’s adaptation to our maniacal inventions. Perhaps then it is not unwise to suggest that the Bill of Rights be amended to include protection of our citizens from such obviously harmful chemicals and even radiation. At least insofar as to give us the right to opt out in the vote booths as to whether or not these chemicals should be used.

At this point it is unknown as to whether or not the processes described by Carson and others are completely irreversible, but it would be wise to consider the notion that we are all part of this world and are therefore subject to the changes this world will make in reaction to us. To sum up Rachel Carson’s warning is to recount a quote by Jean Roosted, the man that inspired the name of the New York Times excerpt; stating, “the obligation to endure gives us the right to know.” If the leaders of this world want to create a responsible society in our augmentation of health, the right to know and the right to vote in these processes must be made into a necessary part of our societal evolution. Otherwise the use of toxins sprayed on our food, in our air and in the genetics of the products itself will continue to deposit the poisons into everything we know until it all becomes too much for life to continue.

“There’s nothing they are leaving untouched: the mustard, the okra, the bringe oil, the rice, the cauliflower. Once they have established the norm: that seed can be owned as their property, royalties can be collected. We will depend on them for every seed we grow of every crop we grow. If they control seed, they control food, they know it — it’s strategic. It’s more powerful than bombs. It’s more powerful than guns. This is the best way to control the populations of the world. The story starts in the White House, where Monsanto often got its way by exerting disproportionate influence over policymakers via the “revolving door”. One example is Michael Taylor, who worked for Monsanto as an attorney before being appointed as deputy commissioner of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1991. While at the FDA, the authority that deals with all US food approvals, Taylor made crucial decisions that led to the approval of GE foods and crops. Then he returned to Monsanto, becoming the company’s vice president for public policy.”

“Thanks to these intimate links between Monsanto and government agencies, the US adopted GE foods and crops without proper testing, without consumer labeling and in spite of serious questions hanging over their safety. Not coincidentally, Monsanto supplies 90 percent of the GE seeds used by the US market. Monsanto’s long arm stretched so far that, in the early nineties, the US Food and Drugs Agency even ignored warnings of their own scientists, who were cautioning that GE crops could cause negative health effects. Other tactics the company uses to stifle concerns about their products include misleading advertising, bribery and concealing scientific evidence.”

Building New Horizons


Every action we take creates another reaction; such are the karmic laws of the Universe. But what does this mean to you and what personal accountability do we really have?

To put it lightly, in terms of what external outcome our reality manifests into; we have a direct affect on everything that happens. When you stop worrying about all the little things in life, they often work themselves out along the way towards tackling the larger issues that you should be occupying your time and energy with. When applying this mentality; you wont get as overwhelmed as easily and will be surprised at how well life can harmonize naturally and balance things out in its own.

When learning and contemplating new truths, or when presented with a different perspective or aspect of life, and especially for those maturing themselves willfully by choosing begin the journey of self-discovery; I would recommend the following. With all things, weigh out that which you personally feel with your heart  towards any particular aspect of “truth” or learning and balance what is weighed with your mind in terms of logic.

The outcome of which should be your own personal “reason,” always go with this as this is your base level of reality; but remember that this can be changed willfully (whether toward a personal detriment or benefit, is perhaps objective) and is most definitely probabilistic and deterministic; meaning that your reality itself is completely contingent upon what you willfully concentrate your energies on.

You are what you make yourself to be; every thought, every action, every step you take stems directly from a decision that you yourself have made. The more you realize how you are the creator of your own life, the more freedom you will have within the architecture of your own reality.

Build wisely my friends…
