“A psychotic world we live in. The madmen are in power.”—Philip K. Dick, The Man in the High Castle

If we haven’t learned by now, we should beware of anything the government insists is for our own good.

Take the Biden Administration’s Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.

Given the deteriorating state of the nation’s infrastructure (aging highways and bridges, outdated railways and airports, etc.), which have been neglected for years in order to fund America’s endless wars abroad, it would seem like an obvious and long overdue fix.

Yet there’s a catch.

There’s always a catch.

Tucked into the whopping $1 trillion bipartisan spending bill is a provision requiring automakers to prescribe a “federal motor vehicle safety standard for advanced drunk and impaired driving prevention technology, and for other purposes.”

As Jason Torchinksky writes for Jalopnik:

It’s pretty clear that the goals of this section of the law are to reduce drunk driving fatalities and crashes via still-undetermined technological tools that somehow are able to “passively monitor the performance of a driver of a motor vehicle to accurately identify whether that driver may be impaired,” and/or “passively and accurately detect whether the blood alcohol concentration of a driver of a motor vehicle is equal to or greater than the blood alcohol concentration described in section 163(a) of title 23, United States Code,” and if either or both of these conditions are proven to be positive — if the car thinks you’re drunk, then it may “prevent or limit motor vehicle operation.

As expected, the details are disconcertingly vague, which leaves the government with a wide berth to sow the seeds of mischief and mayhem. For instance, nowhere does the legislation indicate how such a so-called “kill switch” would work, what constitutes a driver who is “impaired,” and what “other purposes” might warrant the government using such a backdoor kill switch.

As former Rep. Bob Barr explains:

Everything about this mandatory measure should set off red flares. First, use of the word “passively” suggests the system will always be on and constantly monitoring the vehicle. Secondly, the system must connect to the vehicle’s operational controls, so as to disable the vehicle either before driving or during, when impairment is detected. Thirdly, it will be an “open” system, or at least one with a backdoor, meaning authorized (or unauthorized) third-parties can remotely access the system’s data at any time.

This is a privacy disaster in the making, and the fact that the provision made it through the Congress reveals — yet again — how little its members care about the privacy of their constituents… The lack of ultimate control over one’s vehicle presents numerous and extremely serious safety issues… If that is not reason enough for concern, there are serious legal issues with this mandate. Other vehicle-related enforcement methods used by the Nanny State, such as traffic cameras and license plate readers, have long presented constitutional problems; notably with the 5th Amendment’s right to not self-incriminate, and the 6th Amendment’s right to face one’s accuser.

Once again, the burden of proof is reversed, and “we the people” find ourselves no longer presumed innocent until proven guilty but suspects in a suspect society.

These “vehicle kill switches” may be sold to the public as a safety measure aimed at keeping drunk drivers off the roads, but they will quickly become a convenient tool in the hands of government agents to put the government in the driver’s seat while rendering null and void the Constitution’s requirements of privacy and its prohibitions against unreasonable searches and seizures.

Indeed, when you think about it, these vehicle kill switches are a perfect metaphor for the government’s efforts to not only take control of our cars but also our freedoms and our lives.

For too long, we have been captive passengers in a driverless car controlled by the government, losing more and more of our privacy and autonomy the further down the road we go.

Just think of all the ways in which the government has been empowered to dictate what we say, do and think; where we go; with whom we associate; how we raise our families; how we live our lives; what we consume; how we spend our money; how we protect ourselves and our loved ones; and to what extent our rights as individuals can be displaced for the sake of the so-called greater good.

In this way, we have arrived, way ahead of schedule, into the dystopian future dreamed up by such science fiction writers as George Orwell, Aldous Huxley, Margaret Atwood and Philip K. Dick.

In keeping with Dick’s darkly prophetic vision of a dystopian police state—which became the basis for Steven Spielberg’s futuristic thriller Minority Report, which was released 20 years ago—we have been imprisoned in a world in which the government is all-seeing, all-knowing and all-powerful, and if you dare to step out of line, dark-clad police SWAT teams and pre-crime units will crack a few skulls to bring the populace under control.

Minority Report is set in the year 2054, but it could just as well have taken place in 2022.

Incredibly, as the various nascent technologies employed and shared by the government and corporations alike—facial recognition, iris scanners, massive databases, behavior prediction software, and so on—are incorporated into a complex, interwoven cyber network aimed at tracking our movements, predicting our thoughts and controlling our behavior, Spielberg’s unnerving vision of the future is fast becoming our reality.

Both worlds—our present-day reality and Minority Report’s celluloid vision of the future—are characterized by widespread surveillance, behavior prediction technologies, data mining, fusion centers, driverless cars, voice-controlled homes, facial recognition systems, cybugs and drones, and predictive policing (pre-crime) aimed at capturing would-be criminals before they can do any damage.

Surveillance cameras are everywhere. Government agents listen in on our telephone calls and read our emails. Political correctness—a philosophy that discourages diversity—has become a guiding principle of modern society.

The courts have shredded the Fourth Amendment’s protections against unreasonable searches and seizures. In fact, SWAT teams battering down doors without search warrants and FBI agents acting as a secret police that investigate dissenting citizens are common occurrences in contemporary America.

We are increasingly ruled by multi-corporations wedded to the police state. Much of the population is either hooked on illegal drugs or ones prescribed by doctors. And bodily privacy and integrity has been utterly eviscerated by a prevailing view that Americans have no rights over what happens to their bodies during an encounter with government officials, who are allowed to search, seize, strip, scan, spy on, probe, pat down, taser, and arrest any individual at any time and for the slightest provocation.

We’re on the losing end of a technological revolution that has already taken hostage our computers, our phones, our finances, our entertainment, our shopping, our appliances, and now, our cars. As if the government wasn’t already able to track our movements on the nation’s highways and byways by way of satellites, GPS devices, and real-time traffic cameras, performance data recorders, black box recorders and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications will monitor our vehicle’s speed, direction, location, gear selection, brake force, the number of miles traveled and seatbelts use, and transmit this data to other drivers, including the police.

In this Brave New World, there is no communication not spied upon, no movement untracked, no thought unheard. In other words, there is nowhere to run and nowhere to hide.

Herded along by drones, smart phones, GPS devices, smart TVs, social media, smart meters, surveillance cameras, facial recognition software, online banking, license plate readers and driverless cars, we are quickly approaching a point of singularity with the interconnected technological metaverse that is life in the American police state.

Every new piece of technologically-enabled gadget we acquire and technologically-boobytrapped legislation that Congress enacts pulls us that much deeper into the sticky snare.

These vehicle kill switches are yet another Trojan Horse: sold to us as safety measures for the sake of the greater good, all the while poised to wreak havoc on what little shreds of autonomy we have left.

As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People and in its fictional counterpart The Erik Blair Diaries, we’re hurtling down a one-way road at mind-boggling speeds to a destination not of our choosing, the terrain is getting more treacherous by the minute, and we’ve passed all the exit ramps.

From this point forward, there is no turning back, and the signpost ahead reads “Danger.”

Time to buckle up your seatbelts, folks. We’re in for a bumpy ride.

When in 1951 American secret services started work on Project Artichoke, they had set their goals as follows: “Evolution and development of any method by which we can get information from a person against his will and without his knowledge… Can we get control of an individual to the point where he will do our bidding against his will and even against such fundamental laws of nature such as self preservation?”.

This publication in the New York Times was a result of the scandal caused by the abuse of the patients at the Canadian mental hospital Allan Memorial Institute. In another CIA report quoted in the New York Times article it is stated:

“Many phases of the research in the control of human behavior involve a high degree of sensitivity. The professional reputations of outside researchers are in jeopardy since the objectives of such research are widely regarded as anti-ethical or illegal” .

This classified research is going on until present time. The only difference is that when some 200 American diplomats and CIA employees were exposed to attacks by pulsed microwaves the American press started writing on the subject (see this and this),  without disclosing the whole range of effects of electromagnetic radiation on the human nervous system.

As a matter of fact the human nervous system is filled with electrolyte (solution of water and salt, full of ions), which functions as an antenna, which can transform the electromagnetic  signals coming from the outside into electrical currents which will propagate in nervous tissue and produce the firing of neurons. In this way the activity of the human nervous system can be controlled by electromagnetic waves or microwaves, if they are pulsed in the frequencies corresponding to the frequencies of the activity of the human nervous system (click on “Psychoelectronic threat to democracy“ and at the bottom of the page open the link).

Billions of dollars and euros, that were invested into brain research in the past years, made it possible to map the frequencies of the brain activity and in this way open the road to the manipulation of human perceptions, emotions and even thoughts and memories by electromagnetic radiation. The scientists in California developed a device that  can interpret the vowels and consonants in our brain for effective writing, or in other words, write down people’s  thoughts. According to the researchers, this device is at least 90% accurate.  In 2017 scientists believed that this machine could  be linked to smartphones within the next few years.  Device that Translates your Thoughts in to Words will be in Smartphones soon – Research Snipers, which means that it will  connect the brains of people directly to cell phone system and the internet.

Knowing the brain frequencies of vowels and consonants enables scientists to reverse this procedure and transmit thoughts into the brains of people. In 2007 The Washington Post published an article where it wrote:

“In 2002, the Air Force Research Laboratory patented…  a technology: using microwaves to send words into someone’s head…  In response to a Freedom of Information Act request filed for this article, the Air Force released unclassified documents surrounding that 2002 patent — records that note that the patent was based on human experimentation in October 1994 at the Air Force lab, where scientists were able to transmit phrases into the heads of human subjects, albeit with marginal intelligibility. Research appeared to continue at least through 2002. Where this work has gone since is unclear — the research laboratory, citing classification, refused to discuss it“ (Mind Games, washingtonpost.com)

When the phrases, transmitted into the brain, will be converted into ultrasound, people will not realize them, because they will not hear them, but the phrases will reach their brain anyway and in this way will  become the targeted persons “thoughts“. In this way the goals of the research, cited at the beginning of this article, were reached. If you do not believe it think about the fact that in 2019 scientists in the USA were capable of implanting into the memory of mice a memory of an odor they had never smelled, and made the mice react to it, see this. Also, in August 2020, the scientist Rafael Yuste, teaching at the U.S. Columbia University told the New York Times  that “once the manipulation goes directly into the brain… you will not be able to tell you are being manipulated”, see this.

In Russia this kind of brain research had already started in the thirties of the past century. In August 27, 1991 the Russian newspaper ‘Komsomolskaya Pravda’ published the statement by Victor Sedletski, the vice president of the League of Independent Scientists of the USSR, where he wrote:

“As an expert and juridical personality I declare: In Kiev (and this is serious) the mass production … of psychotronic biogenerators was launched. I can not assert that during the coup d‘etat exactly the Kiev generators were used… All the same the fact that they were used is evident to me. What are the psychotronic generators? It is an electronic equipment producing the effect of guided control in the human organism“ (electronic copy of the article – Authors of Project Zombie discovered in Kiev).

In  1992 the Russian Independent Institute of Foreign Policy published in the weekly ‘Stolitsa’ the article “MC-ultra program“ (the title was inspired by the CIA mind control program from the sixties, that was quoted at the beginning of this article). In the article Victor Sedletski informed that in 1982 the USSR started the development of quite new radar system, which allowed it to control any place on the planet and that the system could be used for the creation of “psychotronic field for mind control“. He did not say exactly which project he was talking about, but it seems that he was talking about the system Sura, which was built in 1981 near the city Nizhnyi Novgorod in the central part of Russia. It was financed by the Russian ministry of defense and later it was controlled by Radiophysical Science Research Institute. See this and this.

By pulsing electromagnetic waves, the radar system Sura can produce in the ionosphere varying electrical currents and those currents then will produce electromagnetic waves in the frequencies of pulses, which will reach vast areas of the planet. If the pulsing of electromagnetic waves corresponds to frequencies of human brain activities, the electromagnetic frequencies produced by electrical currents in the ionosphere will influence the functioning of brains of whole populations.

In 1994 the USA started building the system using the same principles, but producing greater energies called HAARP (High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program). On the building of the system HAARP   wrote a son of the former Alaskan senator Nick Begich together with the journalist Jeane Manning a book entitled “Angels Don’t Play this HAARP“. In their book they described all the possible military uses of the HAARP system.

Though Europe was used to not opposing USA politics, in this case it became alarmed and invited Nick Begich to testify in the European Parliament on the HAARP system. As a result of his testimony the European Parliament approved, on January 28th, 1999, a resolution number A4-0005/1999 on Environment Protection and Security and Foreign Affairs.

In the resolution the European Parliament called „on the European Union to seek to have the new ‘non-lethal’ weapons technology and the development of new arms strategies also covered and regulated by international conventions“, declared that it

“considers HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Project) by virtue of its far-reaching impact on the environment to be a global concern and calls for its legal, ecological and ethical implications to be examined by an international independent body before any further research and testing“.

It expressed its regret over

“the repeated refusal of the United States Administration to send anyone in person to give evidence to the public hearing or any subsequent meeting held by its competent committee into the environmental and public risks connected with the HAARP program currently being funded in Alaska“.

Finally it called “for an international convention introducing a global ban on all developments and deployments of weapons which might enable any form of manipulation of human beings” See this. (item 30).

In February 2000 the Russian daily Segodnya (Today) published the article “Riders of Psychotronic Apocalypse“. The largest part of the article was dedicated to “psychotronic“ weapons, thus suggesting that Russians were aware of the possible use of the HAARP system for the control of the brain activity of the Russian population. It said:

“It is necessary to admit that our potential adversary is presenting us all grounds to talk about ‘psychotronic‘ or ‘psychic‘ weapon as a fact which we have to consider to be real… The point is that the non-lethal weapon,  which is being developed in Los Alamos, is, according to Russian military classification, tightly connected with so -called ‘information weapon’… such a weapon is capable to affect not only the soldiers of the adversary… but the whole population of the country“.

The article in the daily Segodnya described Russian reactions to the findings of the FAPSI agency at the international as well as national level. On the international level the State Duma and then Inter Parliamentary Assembly of the Union of Independent States addressed in 1997 the United Nations, OBSE and European Council, with a proposal to introduce the  international convention on the ban of information wars and restriction of circulation of the information weapon. According to the article the Russian initiative went so far that in March 1998 the issue was discussed at the meeting with the Secretary General of the UN Kofi Anan and at the initiative of Russia was included in the agenda of the Assembly General of the UN. Apparently this Russian effort was put to a stop by the unwillingness of the USA  and its allies from NATO to join the international convention.

The Russian Department of Defense and the Russian government also reacted to the threat. The Commission on Military Construction included means of information war among the three priority factors of the country’s potential to fight against the possible aggression from the outside. The daily  Segodnya wrote that mysterious means of information-psychological effects are fully capable not only to impair the health,  but to also cause “blocking, on subconscious level, of  the freedom of will of a human being, loss of ability of  political, cultural and other self identification of a human being, manipulation of societal consciousness” and even “destruction of indivisible informational and spiritual space of RF” [Russian Federation]. See this.

In 2019 the Chinese daily China Morning Post wrote that  China tested the Russian system Sura and that the American system HAARP is capable of generating 4 times higher energy than the Russian system Sura. As a result of those tests China started building its own more advanced radar system with possible military use in  Sanja, in province Hajnan, which could manipulate the ionosphere  over the whole South China sea. It also wrote that according to some critics, those systems are capable of influencing the activity of human brains, see this.

If world superpowers were interested in defending the freedom of human mind and thinking, they would have to organize an international agreement banning the development and use of any systems enabling remote control of the human nervous system and human brain activity.

To make such an agreement possible, they would have, as well, to agree that they will stop the competition to acquire military control of the world.

Russia evidently can not accept such an agreement for as long as the USA is surrounding its territory by military bases and China is in the same situation, when American navy is operating in the South China sea. This American military pressure against China and Russia justifies, in the eyes of part of Russian and Chinese citizens, the lack of democracy in those countries.

The Russia radar system Sura, just like American system HAARP,  and in the future the Chinese system, are or will be able to eradicate inhabitants of large areas of our planet, but such use may not be necessary.  It will be satisfactory to gain control of people’s thinking in those areas.

To achieve  the same effect it should be possible to add pulses in brain frequencies to transmissions of cell phone networks.  Recently the U.S. Department of Defense searched for speakers at the conference, where military use of the fifth generation of cell phone technology should be discussed, see this. It is not by accident that the USA warned their allies against the use of HUAWEI technology.

They evidently know what all it can be used for. In the sixth generation of cell phone systems  it is planned to connect human brains to the internet. Already the omnipresence of the signals of the fifth generation should alarm people.  In October 2018 a scientist from the American military research agency DARPA  James Giordano told in a lecture to cadets that his agency produced nanomaterial, which can be aerosolized and when breathed in, penetrate the human brain and make it more susceptible to manipulation by pulsed microwaves (watch the video below from 37:16). Such a possibility was already disclosed in an article by The Huffington Post in October 2017. In this article the scientists predicted that this technology will be produced within 2 to 5 years.

If the world politicians or actual rulers will not manage to control the lust for power as a basic principle of their activity, we can expect that a new electronical totalitarian power will be established in the world, which will be impossible to „vote out“ or overthrow, because people will not be able to even think about it.

In 1994 the Strategic Studies Institute at the U.S. Army War College published a study ”Revolution in Military Affairs and Conflict Short of War”, where possible use of this technology was described: ”Potential or possible supporters of the insurgency around the world were identified using the comprehensive Interagency Integrated Database. These were categorized as ‘potential’ or ‘active’, with sophisticated computerized personality simulations used to develop, tailor and focus psychological campaigns for each”, see this.

On September 30, 2021 the senate in Chile approved a law establishing the right to personal identity, free will, and mental privacy for Chilean citizens. The Chilean senator Giulio Girardi said “the law is to protect ‘the last frontier’ of the human being: the human psyche“ see this. As well the initiator of this legislation Chilean scientist Rafael Yuste advocated at the United Nations  to add five “NeuroRights” in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, see this. Those are the good news.

The bad news is that  big media around the world did not inform about those events, thus keeping in secret the technologies that the governments have at hand. Under such circumstances the willingness of the world governments to reach an agreement banning the use  of those technologies against people, remains questionable for as long as people will not oblige them to do it.

Taking a Look Back at the 2012 Olympics London Closing Ceremony: Does it Hold Secrets to What’s Going on in the World?

The world has been blind-sided for centuries, while underhanded organizations operate behind the curtain.

“All the world’s a stage.” – William Shakespeare

A lot of focus has been called to attention on the 2012 Olympics London Opening Ceremony, especially in the midst of the “coronavirus” situation we find ourselves in today, (as well it should, there are a lot of interesting correlations and eerie predictive programming in that event), but lesser attention has been paid to the closing ceremony that also espouses some strange and somewhat alarming connotations.

In the closing ceremony, many references to famous poems, plays and novels appears in a newsprint like fashion splayed all across the floor. Looking closer, I wanted to compile a list of these literary works to expand upon what the 2012 ceremony might have been focused on, because as strange and foreboding as the opening ceremony was (which will be focused on in a separate post), the closing ceremony may hold just as many hints as to what is going on in the world today.

So with that being said, I am going to present a list of the works that I’ve seen from the performance (not an exhaustive list since I couldn’t catch all of it – if there is a full reference to the pieces of work that was displayed, please let me know and I will add it to this list), and a short excerpt/section from the writing, and perhaps a small commentary explaining some further notes.

“Now is The Winter of Our Discontent” – Shakespeare’s play, Richard III

“I am determined to prove a villain
And hate the idle pleasures of these days.
Plots have I laid, inductions dangerous,
By drunken prophecies, libels and dreams,
To set my brother Clarence and the king
In deadly hate the one against the other:
And if King Edward be as true and just
As I am subtle, false and treacherous,
This day should Clarence closely be mew’d up,
About a prophecy, which says that ‘G’
Of Edward’s heirs the murderer shall be.
Dive, thoughts, down to my soul: here
Clarence comes.”

It’s been mentioned that the ‘G’ being referred to in this tale is Richard III himself. However, I have a different hypothesis that borders along the same lines, and sets the stage for what I feel is what the whole ceremony was about.

While Richard is plotting a murderous scandal and rivalry between his two brothers, making it seem like the ‘G’ in the prophecy is his brother George, Duke of Clarence, he is of course referring to himself, Richard, Duke of Gloucester. – Yes. That is one theory. But the other theory is that the ‘G’ he is referencing is the Great Architect honored in the Freemasons.

In one way, he could be considering himself as the Great Architect, orchestrating a devious plan to pit his brothers against each other so that he can take over the throne. In another speculation, he is inviting the “Great Architect” to “dive, thoughts, down to my soul”. He is inviting this Grand Architect into his soul to give him insights into how to carry out his master plan.

This is just a theory, of course, but with more and more prevalence of the Freemason’s involvement in the way the world is being run, I’d say this theory holds just as much water (if not more) as anything else proposed.

“Hamlet” – William Shakespeare

“this most excellent canopy, the air, look you,
this brave o’erhanging firmament, this majestical roof fretted with golden fire
– why, it appeareth no other thing to me than a foul and pestilent congregation of vapours.
What a piece of work is a man! how noble in reason! how infinite in faculties!
in form and moving how express and admirable!
in action how like an angel!
in apprehension how like a god!
the 1400 beauty of the world, the paragon of animals!
And yet to me what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me- no, nor woman
neither”

– Act 2, Scene 2

To be, or not to be, that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles
And by opposing end them. To die—to sleep,
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to: ’tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep;
To sleep, perchance to dream—ay, there’s the rub:
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause—there’s the respect
That makes calamity of so long life.”

– Act 3, Scene 1

The rest is silence.”
– Act 5, Scene 2

Another tale from Shakespeare of political intrigue, corruption, doubts, revenge, insecurities, philosophies, life/death…

“The Tempest” – William Shakespeare

Caliban: Be not afeard. The isle is full of noises,
Sounds and sweet airs that give delight and hurt not.
Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments
Will hum about mine ears, and sometimes voices
That, if I then had waked after long sleep,
Will make me sleep again; and then, in dreaming,
The clouds methought would open, and show riches
Ready to drop upon me, that when I waked
I cried to dream again.”
Stephano: “This will prove a brave kingdom to me,
where I shall have my music for nothing.
Caliban: When Prospero is destroyed.”
– Act 3, Scene 1

Miranda: “O wonder!
How many goodly creatures are there here!
How beauteous mankind is! O, brave new world
That has such people in ’t!

– Act 5, Scene 1

Shakespeare’s history is a long and complicated one. There are many who theorize that Shakespeare wasn’t a real person, per se, but in fact was a pen name for Sir Francis Bacon, or a name given to Francis Bacon and some of his cohorts, in order to implant coded messages into these literary works.

Dr. Orville Ward Owen claimed to have invented a Cipher Wheel that could decode pertinent/hidden information in these publications. His attempts at discovering “the mystery” was unsuccessful for him, however.

There are several other theories involving Shakespeare, being Francis Bacon himself, was a secret heir to Queen Elizabeth I. Still, other theories claim that Shakespeare/Bacon was an incarnation of Saint Germain, known famously for his feats of extraordinary phenomena and purported alchemy, not to mention the notion of immortality.

“According to Stephen Wagner, Saint Germain is said to be linked to “several secret societies, from the Rosicrucians to Freemasons, Society of Asiatic Brothers, the Knights of Light, the Illuminati and Order of the Templars.”

“It Was the Best of Times, It Was the Worst of Times” – Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way–in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.”

“This phrase points out a major conflict between family and love, hatred and oppression, good and evil, light and darkness, and wisdom and folly. Dickens begins this tale with a vision that human prosperity cannot be matched with human despair. He, in fact, tells about a class war between the rich and the poor. He also tells of a time of despair and suffering on one hand, and joy and hope on the other.”

“In his heart the Monk was praying,
Thinking of the homeless poor,
What they suffer and endure;
What we see not, what we see;
And the inward voice was saying:
“Whatsoever thing thou doest
To the least of mine and lowest,
That thou doest unto me!”

Unto me! but had the Vision
Come to him in beggar’s clothing,
Come a mendicant imploring,
Would he then have knelt adoring,
Or have listened with derision,
And have turned away with loathing.”

This whole poem is well worth the read, as it poses a philosophical contemplation on not only how do we know if we’re doing the right thing, but also a self-reflection as to our own beliefs and thoughts.

In this Longfellow poem, a Monk sees a vision of the Christ appearing right infront of him, but right before he is to set out on his duties to feed the poor. (The rich/poor separation of the social class is a huge subject for this country.)

The Monk asks himself, wouldn’t it be rude to leave this splendor, who took the time to honor him with his presence? Why would he want to leave this beautiful, glowing figure for a “crowd of ragged, bestial Beggars”? He was also concerned that the Vision wouldn’t be there when he got back, so was struggling with an inner conflict on what to do.

But he heard a voice telling him, ““Do thy duty; that is best; Leave unto thy Lord the rest!” which motivated him to head to the poor to feed them as was his custom and duty. However, it’s interesting that the lines don’t mention anything about doing this duty out of compassion and love for the poor. Just that it was his job to do so.

Regardless, the Monk does contemplate on the suffering that the poor endures, and after he hears the inner voice inside him say, “Whatsoever thing thou doest to the least of mine and lowest, that thou doest unto me!” he wonders that if the Christ had shown Himself to him in rags and beggar’s clothing, would the Monk still have heeded His words? If the Christ hadn’t appeared in a glowing like visage, would the Monk have treated Him with contempt and derision, and turn Him away to wait at the gate just like everybody else?

“Kubla Khan” – Samuel Taylor Coleridge

“In Xanadu did Kubla Khan
A stately pleasure-dome decree:

But oh! that deep romantic chasm which slanted
Down the green hill athwart a cedarn cover!
A savage place! as holy and enchanted
As e’er beneath a waning moon was haunted
By woman wailing for her demon-lover!

And ’mid this tumult Kubla heard from far
Ancestral voices prophesying war!
The shadow of the dome of pleasure
Floated midway on the waves;
Where was heard the mingled measure
From the fountain and the caves.
It was a miracle of rare device,
A sunny pleasure-dome with caves of ice!”

Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Making the infamous sign of the Hidden Hand of the freemasons

When researching freemason teachings, there are a lot of esoteric meanings that one can ascribe to the different symbologies and written prose/poetry, buildings, artwork, etc.

In the above poem, one could glean several different perspectives of what is being stated; however, what grabs my attention the most is the mention of domes and caves of ice. I made a post specifically dealing with the dome/firmament, so these references automatically stood out to me.

The others that were of particular concern are “by woman wailing for her demon-lover” and “ancestral voices prophesying war”. There are freemason teachings that believe that Eve conceived a race of people born from Lucifer. Another possible reference of this poem could be attributed to Kubal Khan, grandson of Genghis Khan, whom some speculate may have been a giant/nephilim, with Kubal Khan himself being a descendant/offspring of a fallen angel.

“What leaf-fring’d legend haunts about thy shape
Of deities or mortals, or of both,
In Tempe or the dales of Arcady?
What men or gods are these?

Who are these coming to the sacrifice?
To what green altar, O mysterious priest,
Lead’st thou that heifer lowing at the skies,
And all her silken flanks with garlands drest?
What little town by river or sea shore,
Or mountain-built with peaceful citadel,
Is emptied of this folk, this pious morn?
And, little town, thy streets for evermore
Will silent be; and not a soul to tell
Why thou art desolate, can e’er return.”

John Keats died at a very young age, allegedly from tuberculosis. Almost ironically, he was also studying medicine for several years, as well as becoming an accomplished poet. With his acquaintances and colleagues surrounding his interests and career pursuits, there may have been connections to some of the secret societies that are being proposed in this post.

“Jennifer Wunder makes a strong case for the importance of hermeticism and the secret societies to an understanding of John Keats’s poetry and his speculations about religious and philosophical questions. Although secret societies exercised enormous cultural influence during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, they have received little attention from Romantic scholars. And yet, information about the societies permeated all aspects of Romantic culture. Groups such as the Rosicrucians and the Freemasons fascinated the reading public, and the market was flooded with articles, pamphlets, and books that discussed the societies’s goals and hermetic philosophies, debated their influence, and drew on their mythologies for literary inspiration. Wunder recovers the common knowledge about the societies and offers readers a first look at the role they played in the writings of Romantic authors in general and Keats in particular. She argues that Keats was aware of the information available about the secret societies and employed hermetic terminology and imagery associated with these groups throughout his career.”

“The Lion and the Unicorn” – George Orwell

“As I write, highly civilized human beings are flying overhead, trying to kill me.

They do not feel any enmity against me as an individual, nor I against them. They are “only doing their duty”, as the saying goes. Most of them, I have no doubt, are kind-hearted law-abiding men who would never dream of committing murder in private life. On the other hand, if one of them succeeds in blowing me to pieces with a well-placed bomb, he will never sleep any the worse for it. He is serving his country, which has the power to absolve him from evil.”

Aside from the lion and the unicorn being the symbols of the United Kingdom, with the famed Queen Elizabeth II presiding, it is also an essay by George Orwell (famous for his 1984 novel) on the social and political paradigm that we find ourselves in; with mentions of the rich/poor dichotomy that echoes the same sentiment as Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities.

There are many controversial and debatable points one can contend with when reading his essay, however, this post is not about that. With George Orwell’s mention at the 2012 London Olympics, the issue here is if we can connect this to secret societies and occult groups.

And yes, yes we can. Extensively.

This is a deep, dark rabbit hole, and I cannot do it justice in this one small section, but I can mention some possible connections of George Orwell to Aldous Huxley, Aleister Crowley, H.G. Wells, and the Fabian Society. I will say this, however: Aldous Huxley and Aleister Crowley have ties to the MK Ultra program, if not the very founders of this very nefarious project.

Which brings me to another reference with the same subject matter found within the 2012 London Olympics “newspaper art”:

“A Clockwork Orange” – Anthony Burgess

“Well, what they sold there was milk plus something else. They had no licence for selling liquor, but there was no law yet against prodding some of the new veshches which they used to put into the old moloko, so you could peet it with vellocet or synthemesc or drencrom or one or two other veshches which would give you a nice quiet horrorshow fifteen minutes admiring Bog And All His Holy Angels And Saints in your left shoe with lights bursting all over your mozg.”

I want to point out a very strange word in the midst of… even more strange words.

The term “drencrom” I’m sure may catch many people’s eyes, especially with all of the “conspiracy theory” talks of adrenochrome making its rounds through the internet. And as it is used in this context as a drug being put into milk (there is also mention of synthemesc – synthetic mescalane), not to mention the “horrorshow” quote, it is quite obviously alluding to psychedelics.

In addition to that, the novel “A Clockwork Orange” also employs mind control/brain washing techniques reminiscent of MK Ultra. MK Ultra using LSDs, amongst other deplorable techniques, in order to reach their goals.

We could also mention Stanley Kubrick’s movie rendition of A Clockwork Orange, and point to his other film, Eyes Wide Shut, an EXTREMELY overt exposé into the occult rituals of freemasonry. If one would like a deeper analysis, please go here.

“Look Back in Anger” – John Osborne

“Trouble is—Trouble is you get used to people. Even their trivialities become indispensable to you.”
(Act I, Page 33)

“Jimmy’s greatest annoyance regarding Alison is that she appeases everyone. She has no conviction, which is, he believes, almost like not being human.”

Source:SuperSummary | Look Back in Anger

“Nobody thinks, nobody cares. No beliefs, no convictions and no enthusiasm. Just another Sunday evening.”
(Act I, Page 17)

“Jimmy equates the fact that neither Cliff nor Alison “think” to the larger issue of England as a society having no beliefs or convictions any longer.”

Source:SuperSummary | Look Back in Anger

“The only way to keep things as much like they always have been as possible, is to make any alternative too much for your poor, tiny brain to grasp.”
(Act I, Page 20)

“Jimmy ridicules Alison’s brother Nigel, and suggests that those incapable of thought or conviction go to great lengths to ensure that they are unable to understand a more constructive path than the one they are on, in order to protect their own comfort.”

Source:SuperSummary | Look Back in Anger

A lot of these summaries reflect the current state we’re in today, if not the same stages repeated throughout humanity’s history… Many people don’t want to admit that there’s something sinister at work in the world. So rather than confront the truth and reality of it, they remain passive and compliant; willfully ignorant to the depravities and secret inner workings of who is in control of the world. They protect themselves, they think, by turning a blind eye in order to maintain their comfortable way of living, not realizing that they are instead propagating their own subservience and diminishing their own spirituality and capabilities.

While John Osborne regales of the marital discourse and disagreements when addressing social/political interests, it casts a foreboding look on our society and the indifferent, apathetic attitude many have at the events that surround us, as long as it doesn’t affect their own. And even then, the indoctrination of us to “do as we’re told” keeps many under this authoritarian rule.

“Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”

Victor Neuburg “Obsolete Spells”

I could speculate as to what the meaning of this poem is, some propose it could have been Dylan Thomas dealing with reactions of grief and loss concerning his sick father at the time since Dylan mentions him specifically (I, on the other hand, have a completely different theory), but I would rather draw attention to Dylan Thomas’ career and how it got started in the first place.

Victor Neuburg, a prominent author and publisher who was the catalyst who thrust Dylan Thomas’ work in the spotlight, also had quite the relationship with Aleister Crowley. There are also indications that Crowley and Neuburg were trying to induct Dylan Thomas into their order as well. But as one site has commented, Thomas was not too pleased with either of these characters, for some reason or another. The site was rather explicit, so I do not feel comfortable linking to that particular article… but here is another one for consideration, speaking of Dylan Thomas’ affiliation with this mysterious duo.

Dylan Thomas was also the inspiration for Bob Dylan to change his last name from Zimmerman to Dylan. And there is another compelling tale of Bob Dylan, striking a deal in order to get his fame:

I made a bargain with … the Chief Commander … [of] this earth, and the world we can’t see.”Bob Dylan (60 Minutes, 2009)”

One more interesting correlation that I want to bring attention to, which is another huge deep dive into “conspiracy theory” territory: Bob Dylan, Dylan Thomas, and Aleister Crowley are all featured on the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover.

“The Hollow Men” – T.S. Eliot

Between the idea
And the reality
Between the motion
And the act
Falls the Shadow
…..For Thine is the Kingdom

Between the conception
And the creation
Between the emotion
And the response
Falls the Shadow
…..Life is very long

Between the desire
And the spasm
Between the potency

And the existence
Between the essence
And the descent
Falls the Shadow
…..For Thine is the Kingdom

For Thine is
Life is
For Thine is the

This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.

“The Hollow Men” begins with a quote from Joseph Conrad’s famous novella Heart of Darkness, the story of a colonial Englishman who goes power-hungry in Africa, and things only go downhill from there. Eliot’s poem is about a group of scarecrow-like individuals who exist in a state between life and death and suffer from a serious case of moral paralysis. They are forever trapped on the banks of the River Styx, the ancient Greek symbol for the dividing line between life and death. Some critics consider “The Hollow Men” to be a companion piece for Eliot’s most famous work, The Waste Land, another poem about moral paralysis.”

The irony is that Eliot really disliked journalists. He thought they were just like the “hollow men” of this poem, and that the politicians and newspaper editors in Paris weren’t even capable of making enough of a splash to get into Hell (source). When you read the final lines of “The Hollow Men” in light of the rest of the poem, you’ll see that the poem is not so much about the end of the world as about people who sit around and talk without ever trying to put their beliefs or ideas into practice. The poem’s message is dark: if you’re not going to be a good person, then at least be a really bad person.”

Commentary from: T.S. Eliot – The Hollow Men

The above commentary and proposed implications of The Hollow Men is perhaps (not-strangely) reminiscent of Bohemian Grove and The Cremation of Care ritual that is said to happen there. Creating “hollow men” who don’t feel as normal human beings do, and instead will do anything and everything to accomplish their goals…

If that wasn’t concerning enough, there is an account of Queen Elizabeth II being honored by the Bohemian Club in 1983, according to John Daniel’s “Scarlet and the Beast | History of the War Between English and French Freemasonry Vol. 2.”:

“On February 3, 1983, a five-minute segment of the Bohemian Club’s extravaganza in honor of Queen Elizabeth was aired on all three television networks. The event began with a view of the Queen sitting slightly high in the middle of the auditorium, as if on top of a pyramid. Two dancers entered the stage wearing huge hats hanging from cables. The cone of the first hat was representative of a walled city with a pyramid or ziggurat towering in the middle. Obviously, it portrayed ancient Babylon. At the base of the pyramid two doors continuously flapped open and shut displaying inside a large picture of Prince Charles, successor to the British throne, and his wife, Princess Diana. As the dancer in the hat moved stage right, the second dancer entered from stage left. The cone on the second hat portrayed the city of London, with Big Ben towering in the center.

That night the Bohemian Club, an arm of Templar Scottish Rite Freemasonry, acknowledged London as the seat of Mystery Babylon. Queen Elizabeth accepted that acknowledgment. If London is the city that the Apostle John saw in his vision, Queen Elizabeth’s life and nation will be short-lived if Jesus Christ does not tarry — for who knows better the headquarters of its rival than the ruthless French Knights Templar Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.”

For the grand finale, while the flames are being extinguished, ending the 2012 Olympics, we can see an interesting perspective that the cameraperson oh-so artfully executed, implicating who this whole performance was for:

I did not cover any of the other (numerous) masonic symbols and strange innuendos from this performance since I just wanted to concentrate on the literary works that were being shown to the audience (and again, this is not an exhaustive list, but I will add to it as I become aware of and investigate other references). And as we can see, there are a ton of not only subtle nods to the secret society of the freemasons, but DIRECT and overtly obvious affiliations.

But if all of that wasn’t enough to convince you, here is a report by a Romanian Masonic Press Agency made on July 27, 2012, a few hours before the Olympics were to start (translated using translate.com):

Francmasonii la Jocurile Olimpice de la Londra

vineri, 27 iulie 2012

Londra, Regatul Unit. În mai puţin de cinci ore va începe ceremonia oficial de deschidere a Jocurilor Olimpice 2012, eveniment găzduit anul acesta de Regatul Unit în Londra. Începând de astăzi şi timp de aproximativ două săptămâni, Masoni din întreaga lume sosesc la Londra pentru a participa la cel mai mare eveniment planetar care omagiază excelenţa sportivă.

De la şefi de stat şi de guverne la miniştri, oficialităţi de rang înalt, până la simplii participanţi şi atleţi, toţi urmază a lua parte la evenimentul din această seară, ceremonie prezidată de însăşi Regina Elisabeta a II-a, care va deschide Jocurile Olimpice 2012.

La Jocurile Olimpice de anul acesta vor participa şi mai mulţi Masoni din întreaga lume, mare parte dintre aceştia provenind din Statele Unite, Regatul Unit, Australia, Noua Zeelandă, Brazilia, Canada, Mexic, dar şi din ţări precum Franţa, România, Italia, Spania, Argentina etc.

Totalul Masonilor care vor fi prezenţi în Londra în următoarea perioadă variază între 6.000 şi 8.000, neluând în calcul prezenţa membrilor Marii Loji Unite a Angliei, Marii Loji a Scoţiei şi pe cei ai Marii Loji a Irlandei.

Freemasons at the London Olympics

on Friday, July 27, 2012

London, United Kingdom. In less than five hours, the official opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games will begin, an event hosted this year by the United Kingdom in London. Starting today and for about two weeks, Masons from all over the world arrive in London to attend the largest planetary event that pays homage to sports excellence.

From heads of state and government to ministers, high-ranking officials, to mere participants and athletes, all are to take part in tonight’s event, a ceremony chaired by Queen Elizabeth II herself, which will open the 2012 Olympics.

This year’s Olympic Games will be attended by even more Masons from all over the world, most of them coming from the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, but also from countries such as France, Romania, Italy, Spain, Argentina, etc.

The total number of Masons who will be present in London in the next period varies between 6,000 and 8,000, not counting the presence of members of the United Grand Lodge of England, the Grand Lodge of Scotland and those of the Grand Lodge of Ireland.

” – we shall unleash the revolutionary nihilists and atheists, and provoke a formidable social cataclysm, which will demonstrate clearly to the nations, in all its horror, the effect of absolute unbelief, mother of savagery and of the bloodiest disorder. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the mad minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate these destroyers of civilization; and the countless disillusioned adonaites, whose deist soul have up until that time remained without a compass, thirsting for an ideal, but not knowing which God is worthy of tribute, will receive the True Light, by the universal manifestation of the pure Luciferian doctrine, at last made public, an event that will arise from a reactionary movement following the destruction of atheism and adonaism, together at the same time vanquished and exterminated.”Albert Pike, 33rd degree mason

In some renditions, the term ‘adonaites’ and ‘adonaism’ is considered as Christianity.

We have to realize, there is a lot in this world that most of us still don’t understand, and we have to start pondering and researching our history and the ancestry that has been passed down through the ages.

Maybe then we can start making some real progress in the world, and let it grow and develop it in compassionate and love that it should, instead of sinking into chaos and corruption the way these societies are aiming for.
