The UFO enigma – part 2

The Soviet engineer, Leonid Kulik, consecrated his life to investigating the mysterious explosion of 30 June 1908 which destroyed more than ten million trees.

Kulik was able to be so convincing that the exploration of the site, which had become the one and only goal of his existence, was continued and a photographic campaign was organized in 1939.  The Second World War interrupted it, and Kulik, who had enlisted, fell before Kaluga, in 1942.

Starting from 1946, A. Kazantsev took up the study of the site, this time with much superior means.  Like Kulik, he notices that, at the epicentre of the explosion, the trees situated close by have paradoxically remained upright, losing only their tops and their leaves, while those which were farther away, up to several kilometres, had been ripped up or at least lain on the ground.  So this scholar was the first to formulate this unheard of hypothesis:  the object in question did not disintegrate upon hitting the ground, but had exploded in altitude.  This affirmation of course caused a sensation and immediately had detractors.  Krinov, a reputed scholar, the Secretary of the Committee for Meteorite Studies, declared that the explosion had well and truly happened on the ground, and that if there were no traces of stony concretions, it was because the crater excavated by the meteorite had immediately filled with water.

In 1958, on the initiative of Cyril Florenski, the Director of the Committee, the most important expedition ever undertaken in the Tunguska is mounted.

Over years, a very precise map of the site is drawn up and, inside the devastated zone, the researchers determine the angle at which the trees of this zone had been touched and the exact damage that they had suffered.  What they find is stupefying…  Firstly, they notice that, on the trees which had remained standing, certain little branches protected by the shade of bigger branches had not been burnt.  Exactly like that which had happened at Hiroshima or at Nagasaki…

Cross-section of a larch cut down inside the zone of the Siberian catastrophe. The different texture of the wide rings which formed during the first years after the explosion can be seen.

In 1969, the same expedition is able to determine that the silver birches and the aspens which have grown since the explosion, and which should normally be 7 or 8 metres high, are in fact three times that height.  Those which had remained standing in 1908 saw their genetic structure profoundly modified and have grown by more than four times their circumferences in roughly fifty years, which proves that they had been submitted to a direct radioactive emission.  By analyzing the radioactivity which continues to emit inside the wood’s annual rings, the presence of  artificial radioactive isotypes are able to be detected.

Up until this moment, the school of those on the side of a natural phenomenon was not lacking valid arguments.  This discovery considerably weakens their position and leads to a series of discoveries which confirms the artificial, “intelligent” character of the phenomenon.

For a long time, it had been believed that the light which had been visible over the major part of Europe in 1908 came from clouds of dust of terrestrial origin.  It is now known that no meteorite, however big, could raise such an important cloud of dust and, as well as that, that there is no known agent capable of transporting it from Central Siberia to London in a few hours…  That the phenomenon was artificial also finds justification in the trajectory that the object followed and which was able to be perfectly reconstituted, thanks to the study which had been done on the manner in which the trunks of the trees had been knocked down.

The big meteorite which fell on 24 March 1933 in Morland, Kansas, USA, and which made a 50 metre deep crater. Another, which fell in Arizona, produced an excavation 150 metres deep and two kilometres wide.

Using miniature trees and a charge of dynamite, the Russian scholars reconstituted a great number of times in the laboratory the effects of an explosion comparable to that of 1908.  By transposing the position of the trees obtained in this way onto the actual site, they were able to determine that the energy liberated in 1908 was the equivalent of ten megatonnes and, above all, that it could only have occurred in altitude.  Which was also confirmed by a decisive fact:  the systematic sounding of the marshy ground at the epicentre of the explosion and around it does not permit the discovery of the slightest parcel of meteorite rock.  And for good reason…  By studying the electrical fields registered at the arrival of the object and by grouping all of the testimonies of the inhabitants of the region, the scholars were able to determine that, before “exploding”, “the object” of the Tunguska had changed direction several times in flight.  This singularity and the fact that no observation station throughout the world had registered the passage of a meteorite or a comet permits us to assure that the object which flew over the Central Siberian taiga on 30 June 1908 was a flying apparatus, of extra-terrestrial origin, piloted or teleguided by intelligent creatures.

The nature of the explosion and the traces left by the cosmic ship lead us to believe, as well, that it was propulsed by an anti-matter motor…

Right at this particular moment, I am proud to live in the Australian Capital Territory.

Since returning to Australia, I have often been puzzled, not to say annoyed, by the continual waffling of Australian politicians, as they try to avoid doing anything constructive about the environment.  Reams of paper have been devoted to all sorts of studies and surveys.  Experts have given advice.  Scientists have suddenly found themselves on national television, blinking in the unaccustomed light of public scrutiny, only to be shot down (figuratively, at this stage) by politicians spouting stuff where the words “feasibility”, “working families” (always a favourite with Labor) and the now rarer “not proven” are to be heard.

The scientists scurry back to the safety of their relative anonymity (they are often very well-known and respected in their own scientific circles) and politicians get back to more “serious” issues, like how much space should be allowed on footpaths for al fresco meals.  This last issue being important enough locally, to warrant quite a lot of Canberra journalists rushing out to interview a wide range of cafe and restaurant owners, and give them all a bit of free publicity in the local news.  Several days in a row.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the same Legislative Assembly which is so concerned about footpaths, in the places which actually have footpaths – we could do with a lot more of them – has been quietly setting up something wonderful in local schools.  We have yet to see how it will function, but the principle is something which, since returning Down Under, I have been screaming at my television set, every time that the word “environment” returns to the forefront in the news.

“Why on Earth don’t you work with our Aboriginal peoples?!”  I shout.  “It’s their speciality!  Their whole culture is about environmental conservation!  They have thousands of years of experience with Australia’s different environments!  Why are you all so stupid?!”  Sadly, the people inside the television set don’t hear me.  This must be the way that ghosts feel.  Ignored, as if they don’t exist.

Then, this wonderful thing happened.  On 24 May 2010, the ACT Government put out a media release, entitled AUSTRALIAN FIRST SEES ACT STUDENTS LEARN ABOUT ABORIGINAL LANDCARE.  Not a catchy title, but the contents of the release made me want to sing.  I didn’t, though.  I just shrieked “yes!” and forwarded the release on to other like-minded people, as we now say.  However, I did add a few gushing sentences.  No-one has yet answered, and today is 7 June.  They are obviously not as like-minded as I had thought.  “Alone, again.  Naturally.”

Simon Corbell, who is the ACT’s Minister for the Environment, Climate Change and Water, announced that, for the first time in Australia (which saw European settlement in 1788) students will be taught about the traditional landcare practices of our local Aboriginal Elders, the Ngunnawal People.  Minister Corbell said:

“Aboriginal communities in the local region have a rich history of landcare and there is a lot we can learn to better our current practices and strategies in Canberra.

“Our younger generations are the environmental advocates of the future and giving school students this valuable knowledge can only have a positive impact on the local environment into the future.”  Commas are often rare in Government media releases.

The programme is called Understanding the Land through the Eyes of the Ngunnawal People – A Natural Resource Management Programme for ACT Schools.  Another not-very-catchy title.  Governments specialize in them.  The programme will be taught in ACT schools from Pre-School to Year 10.  The Minister also said:

“The information provided in this curriculum will help our children understand, respect and value special sites and areas around Canberra, places like Sandwash and Tidbinbilla.

“The programme will also support Aboriginal children with a continued sense of pride and give them an opportunity to teach fellow students some of the landcare practices of their elders.

“Schools will be given a range of resources supporting the programme, including specific information and photographs on local Aboriginal flora and fauna, audio interviews of local Aboriginal Elders, a booklet for teachers and a DVD.

“I am pleased to have the opportunity to launch such an important curriculum for ACT students and look forward to seeing some of the results in our local environment over coming years.” 

Nice one, Minister.  Now, may I draw your attention to the fact that, according to Jessica Good on WIN News, the ACT has just experienced its wettest Autumn in twenty years?  The Territory’s rooves, unaccustomed to so much rain, have been leaking to such an extent that my roofer is two months overdue in his running repairs to mine.

With all this water, could you possibly see your way clear to having another look at our Stage Three Water Restrictions status?  It would be nice to pop down for a visit to Stage Two for a while.

While we’re on the subject, should the ACT Government really be putting all that time and effort, not to mention taxpayers’ money, into advertising the joys of Living in Canberra, in the hope of encouraging people from overseas and interstate to move here, when we are still on Stage Three Water Restrictions?  Wouldn’t it be more intelligent to fix the water supply first?

In the meantime, congratulations to the ACT Government on this Australian First with the First Australians.  How long will it be before all of the States and Territories follow this example?  Five years?  Ten?  Twenty?  At least the ball is rolling.

And, right now, I am very proud to be living in the Australian Capital Territory.

In the heart of the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand

Man will know that all living things are bearers of light

And that they are creatures to be respected

He will have built the new cities

In the sky, on the earth and on the sea.

 

He will have the memory of what was

And he will know what will be

He will no longer be afraid of his own death

For in his life he will have lived several lives

And the light, he will understand, will never go out.

 

This prophecy tells us the same thing that all of the world’s religions have been telling us for thousands of years:  every living thing carries within itself part of the universal light, which has been given different names at different times, one of them being “God”.  We now know that our DNA contains the memory of all life on this planet, as well as the knowledge of our future on Earth.  In a similar way, we hold within us the spiritual memory of our origins, and the spiritual knowledge of our future.

In this Golden Age, science and spirituality will come together in a common understanding of both our past and of our future.  Then, we will no longer be afraid of our own death because we will have understood that the light… will never go out.

To conclude this foray into the Prophecies of John of Jerusalem,  I would like to give my answer to the question “Why do some prophets predict the End of the World, and others, like John of Jerusalem, predict a new Golden Age?”.

The End of the World prophets and the Golden Age prophets are both right.  The first see the future we will have if we continue on the road on which we have been travelling.  The second see the future we will have if we take a different path.  The future that a prophet sees is probably a reflection of his own personal pessimism or optimism about which path Man will choose to travel.

Life is all about choices.  When we are children, choices concerning our lives are often made by someone else.  As adults, we make our own.

Our choices are reflections of whom we see ourselves to be.  No choice is necessarily bad in itself, although we may perceive it as such later on.

We are each born with a goal in life, with one or more particular lessons to learn.  The “right” path for each of us is the one which takes us to our goal and teaches us the lessons which we need to learn.  Our “right” path will not be the “right” path for somebody else.  Therefore, as individuals, it is not our role to judge other people’s life choices.

However, while, as individuals, we have our own goals and lessons to be learnt, we are also a tiny part of the human species, which also has a goal and lessons to be learnt.  To reach that goal, while learning the lessons, we need to work together, each of us contributing our particular talents and knowledge.

Humans often travel through time at different speeds.  Some of us are able to pop into the future, or zoom back into the past.  We are never able to stay there for very long, but visits can be frequent.  Both the past and the future can teach us how to attain both our individual goals and our collective goal(s).  We need all the help we can get.

So, which future do we want?  Do we want the End of the World, or do we want the Golden Age?  Are we willing to give up and let chaos reign until the Earth is too sick to be saved, or do we want to do something constructive, both as individuals and as a species, to help the Earth to heal?

It is up to us to decide.  Life is all about choices.

In the heart of the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand

Roads will go from one end of the earth and the sky to the other end

Forests will be dense again

And the deserts will have been irrigated

The waters will have become pure again.

 

The earth will be like a garden

Man will watch over everything that lives

He will purify that which he has soiled

He will feel as if all the earth is his home

And he will be wise in thinking of the days to come.

 

This description of our Earth, and of our relation with it, must be balm to the hearts of environmentalists everywhere around the world.  Their efforts will not have been in vain.  Finally, our technology will have been used to clean up the mess we have made and restore the Earth to good health.

However, the only way that we are going to get there, is to let our politicians know that that is what we want, and “get on with it immediately” – please.  Let us remain polite.

Before that can happen, mentalities need to change.  Fast.

Thirty-eighth prophecy tomorrow.

34

 

In the heart of the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand

Man will know what the spirit of all things is

The stone or the water, the body of the animal or the gaze of others

He will have pierced the secrets that the ancient Gods possessed

And he will open door after door in the labyrinth of the new life.

 

He will create with the gushing power of a water source

He will teach the knowledge to the multitude of men

And the children will know more about the earth and the sky than anyone before them

And Man’s body will be bigger and skilful

And his mind will have embraced all things and will have understood them.

 

This prophecy appears to tell us that we will know everything about everything.  Really.  We won’t just think that we do.  We will pass this knowledge to everyone.  It will no longer be limited to specialists, or kept secret by individual countries.  All humans will have access to it.

When?  90% of today’s knowledge is connected to the twentieth century.  The acceleration of knowledge had reached the point, in the year 2000, of doubling every seven years.  It was estimated then that, if discoveries continued at the same rate, they would double, in 2050, every two hours.

Total knowledge and understanding are accessible to us if we can just stop thinking of everything in terms of financial gain.  Once we get over this obsession with money, we will free ourselves to pursue the right paths to absolute knowledge.

So, once again, when will this happen?  Saint John speaks of a very troubled period at the beginning of the third millenium, but announces the beginning of the Golden Age after 2020.

Saint Remy also speaks of a religious and monarchical Parousia around 2020, which seems to agree with the prediction of the coming of the Great Monarch, great pacifier, announced fairly clearly by Nostradamus.

Saint Malachie predicts the end of the Roman Catholic Popes around 2026, but not the disappearance of faith, which will become ecumenical.

Nostradamus puts the Golden Age between 2030 and 2050.

All of these prophecies seem to agree, give or take a few years, which would indicate that 2020 might be some sort of key year for opening our access to better times.

Thirty-fifth prophecy tomorrow.

33

 

In the heart of the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand

Men will be able to go down under the waters

Their bodies will be new and they will be fish

And some will fly high, higher than the birds

As if stones don’t fall.

 

They will communicate with each other

For their minds will be so greatly open that they will receive all messages

And dreams will be shared

And they will live as long as the oldest of men

The one of whom the Holy Books speak.

 

This prophecy is a difficult one for me to comment.  Is John just having trouble describing future technology, or is he saying that our bodies will have changed so much that we will be fish?  He does not say “like fish”.  He says that we will “be fish”.

There has been some experimentation in filling our lungs with a substance which allows us to stay under water for extended periods of time.  This was a few decades ago.  I don’t know if this sort of thing is still being done.

We know that some animals, such as dragons and dolphins, returned to the water, having previously left it to live on land.  Dragons came back onto land, and are now mostly extinct, which shows that dolphins made the right choice.

During our conception and development in our mother’s womb, we go through the entire cycle of evolution.  We don’t actually use our lungs for breathing until we are ejected from the womb.  Theoretically, it could be reasonably simple, with a bit of genetic tweaking, to transform some of us into “fish” again.  Unlike the dolphin, we would not have to adapt “naturally”, which would take numerous generations of us living almost continuously in water.  We could change our DNA and transmit the change to our children.

If large chunks of our planet disappear under the rising seas, this could be part of our coping strategy.

John also speaks of us flying higher than the birds.  He doesn’t mention any machines, so he is probably referring to some sort of levitation.  Some humans are able to control levitation.  Most of us, if we levitate at all, are unable to control it.

Levitation is due to a change in the way that we vibrate, usually connected to our emotional state of mind.  This change eliminates part of the pull of gravity and can send us soaring into the air.  When this happens unexpectedly, it often causes fear.  As soon as we feel fear, our vibration changes and we come back down to earth – or remain desperately clinging to a tree branch, waiting for help.

I had one brush with levitation when I was eight years old.  It was preceded, and accompanied, by a feeling of great joy, happiness and love for the entire Earth.  I wanted to hug the sky.  I was running at the time, and did not immediately realize that my feet were no longer touching the ground.  I only rose about 30 centimetres, and kept travelling forward at the same speed, but I have talked to people who had friends who had had the “whoosh, then treetop” experience.

In the middle of the nineteenth century, a gentleman by the name of Daniel Dunglas Home floated in and out of upstairs windows in London, as his party trick.  So he could definitely levitate at will and control speed and direction while he was doing it.

Perhaps, when our spirituality has developed more universally, we shall be joyful and loving enough to levitate at will.

In the second part of this prophecy, John appears to be speaking about telepathy and sharing dreams.  We know that people often communicate mentally with each other.  I used to communicate in this way with my cousin.  That was before mobile telephones.

I also sent messages in this way to my dog, who responded to them.  It is very easy to do this with animals; you just have to remember to send images, not words.  It is also easier for humans to receive images rather than words, although we can do both if we imagine the word written down, and send it as an image.

John tells us that we are going to live much longer, too.  A healthy, stress-free, spiritual life of love and understanding toward all living things, is guaranteed to lengthen our lives.  We are genetically programmed to live 130 to 140 years.  Already, our average life expectancy increases by three months every year.  If this keeps going, who knows where it will end?

Thirty-fourth prophecy tomorrow.

32

 

In the heart of the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand

Man will have conquered the sky

He will create stars in the great dark blue sea

And he will navigate on this shining ship

New Ulysses, companion of the sun,  for the celestial Odyssey.

 

But he will also be the ruler of the water

He will have built great nautical cities

Which will be fed by sea crops

He will live like this in every part of the great domain

And nothing will be forbidden him.

 

Here, John speaks of space travel and of the creation of spaceships navigating the sea of space.

The Odyssey is an epic poem by Homer which describes the adventures of Ulysses on his journey home from Troy.  It is a coded story incorporating vital navigational information for the merchant seamen of the day.

Sea routes were precious and were kept secret because they were the source of riches for those knowing how to get safely from one place to another, while carrying valuable merchandise.  The Odyssey contains this knowledge, handed down in an entertaining narrative form, and hidden in plain sight.

After space, John speaks of Man taking over the seas and building great nautical cities.  This looks as if it may become a necessity, with the ice caps melting and sea levels rising.

We have already started to experiment with sea crops.  Apparently, this will develop into something much bigger.

We will be taking over the seas, living on/in them, feeding ourselves with food grown in/on them, and we will be perfectly at home everywhere on/in water.

Thirty-third prophecy tomorrow.

27

 

When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins

Man will think that he is God when he will be nothing more than a baby

He will hit out, always overcome by anger and jealousy,

But he will be armed with the power that he has taken

And blind Prometheus he will be able to destroy everything around him.

 

He will remain a dwarf of the soul and he will have the strength of a giant

He will take enormous strides forward but he will not know which road to take

His head will be heavy with knowledge

But he will not know why he lives and dies

He will be like the fire always gesticulating or the child who whimpers.

 

This prophecy tells us that while we think ourselves to be so clever and in control of everything around us, we are unable to control ourselves.  We act like little children who “hit out, always overcome by anger or jealousy”.

The problem is that we have now created powerful weapons of mass destruction, so when we throw a tantrum and “hit out”, we destroy hundreds of thousands of people and harm the Earth at the same time.  It is easy to kill people from 4,000 metres of altitude;  you don’t see people, you see only a “target”, and even that is often just a shape on a screen, a virtual world.

As a species, we have given ourselves great technological power, but our spirituality has not developed at the same rate.  The seed is still there but it is neglected.

So, while we have all of this technology at our fingertips, we don’t know what to do with our lives.  We have all this knowledge but we don’t understand the purpose of our life and death.

We go from being drunk with our own power, to sinking to the depths of depression, because we have forgotten why we are here.  We have become very dangerous, both to ourselves and to the Earth.

Twenty-eighth prophecy tomorrow.

25

 

When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins

The animals which Noah had embarked on his Ark

Will be no more in Man’s hands

Than beasts transformed according to his will

And who will worry about their lifetime of suffering?

 

Man will have made each species into what he wanted

And he will have destroyed numerous ones

What will the man have become who will have changed the laws of life

Who will have made the living animal a piece of clay

Will he be the equal of God or the child of the Devil?

 

For thousands of years we have been transforming our domestic animals.  We have now reached the point where we no longer see our animals as anything more than meat or milk on the hoof.

This has resulted in some “food” species, like pigs and chickens, spending their entire lives locked up in tiny spaces where they can barely move.

We are also introducing human genes into pigs, so that they can grow us “spare parts”, and spiders have now been co-opted for the industrial production of their silk in goat’s milk.

While we have been doing all this, we have managed to wipe out an enormous quantity of other species, either because we wanted their habitat, or because they killed the occasional animal “belonging” to us for food.

Our pollution of the Earth’s air, soil and water has rapidly helped things along too, not to mention over-intensive fishing or other forms of hunting.

While we are on the subject of fishing, is the torture of fish for the pleasure of the human animal really something we should be promoting as a “wholesome family sport”?  Shouldn’t we be teaching our children a bit more compassion, if empathy is too much to ask?

We are immediately up-in-arms when someone tortures a kitten, but fish don’t seem to matter.  Is it because we can’t hear them screaming?  Is it because they don’t have fur?  Is it because they are just too different from us?  It can’t be because they are food;  we don’t need to torture our food to death.

Have we become “the equal of God or the child of the Devil”?

Twenty-sixth prophecy tomorrow.

23

 

When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins

The sun will burn the earth

The Air will no longer be a veil which protects from the fire

It will be only a curtain with holes

And the burning light will eat away skins and eyes.

 

The sea will rise like boiling water

Cities and seasides will be covered

And entire continents will disappear

Men will take refuge on the heights

And they will rebuild already forgetting that which has happened.

 

This prophecy starts by speaking of the holes we have caused in the layer of ozone and of the resulting danger of exposing our skins and eyes to sunlight.  Skin cancers and cataracts are eating “away skins and eyes”.

The second part speaks of rising sea levels and tidal waves.  It tells of the cities, and even continents, which will disappear.

It warns us again of Man refusing to listen to the Earth’s warnings, and building again in the same places where the tsunami have wiped out whole towns.

A lot of small island nations will disappear over the next few decades.  If the waters continue to rise, cities like New York, San Francisco, Melbourne and Sydney will follow them.

Urgent action is needed to slow down, then reverse, global warming, which is causing the ice at the poles to melt, thereby raising sea levels.

Twenty-fourth prophecy tomorrow.
