We Are All the 99 Percent – Occupy Wall Street, Occupy Everywhere
Please come to the blog to comment on this article: click here
I’m writing you today to let you know about the most important, yet under-reported story developing in our society right now, Occupy Wall Street / Occupy Everywhere.
You might not have heard about this movement due to the corporate owned media barely reporting on this story, despite it truly being the most newsworthy event happening in the U.S. and around the world.
Occupy Wall Street started on September 17th in New York City with hundreds of “protesters” (it’s much more than a protest) taking up residence in a park near Wall Street and also close to the NY Federal Reserve. Within a week it had blossomed to over a thousand people marching to raise awareness that ordinary Americans, 99% of the country, have been systematically dominated, manipulated and financially suppressed by the top 1% of income earners. There are now many of thousands of “permanent occupiers” in this park, and the core occupation has spread to a second park in Manhattan.
One of their slogans, “We are the 99%” captures the movement in an easy to understand way. YOU are part of the 99% and most likely even the wealthiest people you know are part of that as well. In fact, it might surprise you just how UN-equal the money distribution is in the “United” States.
Take a look at this pie chart showing the wealth disparity in this (great?) country:
Image from this article at truth-out.org
Notice that the top 1 percent owns FORTY TWO PERCENT of the nation’s wealth. Nearly half of all wealth concentrated into a single percentile of the population. The next 4 percent own another twenty seven percent, bringing the total wealth ownership among the top 5% to a staggering SIXTY NINE PERCENT of this nation’s wealth.
Based on these numbers, maybe the slogan should be “We are the 95%” – but that’s just not quite as catchy.
Still, I would bet you a silver dollar that almost everyone you know falls into the lower 95% and not into the special club of the super-rich that the top 1-5% keep as exclusive as possible, while marketing the dream that if ordinary people work hard enough and invest wisely enough, they too can eventually make it into the “elite” club of the top 5 percent. This, of course, is a complete fabrication and manipulative lie. The top 5% don’t want us in their club. They only want to keep us working hard and taking on high interest debt which funnels straight up to their accounts, while they continue to borrow money at nearly zero percent interest and loan it back out to the bottom 99 percent.
What does this have to do with ascension? Quite a bit, actually. It has to do with knowledge becoming wisdom, leading to discernment, which leads to awakening, ultimately leading to self-empowerment.
This scares the heck out of the top 5% because they know that if just half of the bottom 95% really awakens to the fact that THEY have the power to withdraw their support from the corrupt system of finance, it will all collapse, leaving them with no power over your hearts and minds. They will do whatever it takes to prevent you from withdrawing your power and support from their system, and one of the more radical ways to keep you invested in their system is now starting to make inroads into the discussion about how to “save the economy.”
This radical idea is debt-forgiveness. This involves “forgiving” or officially eliminating all of the public debt that is currently “owned” by the huge banks and corporations. A “debt jubilee” is another phrase for this idea. Imagine for a moment if your mortgage, credit card debt, student loans, automobile loans, boat & RV loans, and other debts were cancelled tomorrow.
Seriously…please take a minute and really let this idea really sink in. Imagine that tomorrow the weight of that debt was suddenly, permanently lifted from your shoulders. How would you feel? How would you spend your days? Would you labor at the same job, or would you pursue something else that inspires you more?
Of course, the top 1-5% don’t like this idea very much, but they may have to resort to it as a form of damage control in order to keep their system intact. Even forbes.com recently ran an article about it, and if you search for “debt forgiveness” or “debt jubilee” you will find more articles advocating this idea. The top 1-5% knows that most people will eventually put themselves back into debt as long as the current financial system stays intact, so this may be the best option for them to take. It would certainly relieve a lot of pressure from the system and prevent some of the more extreme potentials from occurring.
Another potential is for the bottom 95% (remember, that’s you, me and pretty much everyone we know) to wage our own debt boycott. This would involve an organized boycott of all forms of debt, where instead of sending a monthly payment to the banks, you send them a letter explaining that you are not going to support them any longer. The letter would state that you now understand that the bank swindled you into signing away your home seconds after they used YOUR credit to create the funds to pay for your home. This also applies to your auto loans and all other loans. (The fact that all credit is created by the individual and NOT the bank is a deep subject that I cannot cover in this article.)
This debt boycott would need to apply to paying taxes, mortgage payments, credit card payments, car payments and all forms of economic slavery that do not provide the individual with any benefit whatsoever. It wouldn’t apply to utilities, food costs and normal day-to-day expenses.
A debt boycott is still a far-off possibility, but just the idea of it is horrible for the top 1-5% to contemplate because from their parasitic perspective it puts FAR too much power into YOUR hands, which is bad for their business. It is actually better for them to “bestow” a debt jubilee upon the general public, which will make them look like gracious benefactors instead of the enslavers that they truly are. If they “graciously grant” us debt forgiveness, they know that most of the bottom 95% will be back for more debt soon. If the bottom 95% instead boycotts the debt of all the “hallowed” institutions of finance, including the IRS, it would be the end of the world as they know it.
I share these ideas with you in the hopes that they will find fertile ground to grow and spread. Please read more about the “occupy everywhere” movement and consider lending some support to the occupation that is going on near you. It is happening all over the U.S. and the world right now, and it will continue to grow until it reaches a critical mass.
Now, you may find yourself wondering “what is their message?” or encountering corporate-owned media parrots trying to dismiss this movement because “they don’t have a singular message,” but that is actually a good thing. If this was simply “just another protest” about ending the Federal Reserve, ending the ongoing wars and bringing our troops home, reducing education costs, paying workers fair wages, or any one of a myriad of problems facing our society, this movement would not have the staying power that it does. The media can easily minimize or ignore any short-term demonstration. They will not be able to ignore thousands upon thousands of people gathered in hundreds of cities all standing in solidarity with each other for months and months.
This movement has only just begun, and it was a stroke of brilliant genius to make this occupation about bringing everyone together to stand up in unison and simply say “It is time for US to change our world!” We have to throw out the broken financial system, to fire and arrest corrupt politicians who have been bought by corporations, to end corporate personhood (please research that if you don’t know what it means), to take away the tools of domination by 1-5% of the super-wealthy over the rest of us.
A semi-official “Declaration of the Occupation” has indeed been released, and you can see it here: http://nycga.cc/2011/09/30/declaration-of-the-occupation-of-new-york-city/ You can watch Keith Olberman reading this declaration here as well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N8o3peQq79Q
Some websites that will give you more insight into what is happening with this movement are:
http://www.meetup.com/occupytogether/ (Use this to find the occupation near to you so you can see for yourself what is really happening here.)
I see this movement is an aspect of the awakening to unity consciousness that is occurring within humanity. It is long over-due, and needs as much support and energy as we can give to it. I will be back soon with more metaphysically minded articles, but until then please tell your friends about this occupation and make this news known to those who would have missed it. The time to unite is NOW.

10 Things to Know About Wall Street’s Rapacious Attack on America
But now Americans are fighting back and there’s no telling where Occupy Wall Street can lead.
The irrefutable fact is that 99 percent of us are being screwed by the 1 percent who are looting our country (actually it’s more like the top 1/10 of one percent). So if you still harbor any doubts that Wall Street is the right target, here are 10 reasons to consider:
1. Wall Street caused the crash: Unless you are suffering from financial amnesia, you should remember that it was Wall Street’s reckless gambling that did us in. It was Wall Street banks and hedge funds, not home buyers, who created the enormous demand for high-risk mortgages to pool, to securitize, and to turn into Ponzi-like gambling structures with names like CDOs, CDO squared and synthetic CDOs. It was the money-grubbing rating agencies that blessed these pieces of garbage with AAA ratings. As a result, trillions of dollars of worthless toxic assets polluted our financial system. When the bubble they induced burst, our system crashed, causing 8 million working people to lose their jobs in a matter of months due to no fault of their own. Anyone who still blames low-income home buyers (who did not exactly approve their own loans), or regulations or Greece — or anyone other than Wall Street — should be checked for dementia.
2. The Wall Street crash directly caused the gravest unemployment crisis since the Great Depression: We’re three years into the worst jobs crisis since 1937. Upwards of 29 million people are out of work or have been forced into part-time jobs. The number of people who have been jobless for more than 26 weeks is at post-WWII record levels. And there’s no end in sight to this misery. Meanwhile, Wall Street’s representatives in Washington want us to focus on cutting public employment and public services to address the debt that Wall Street itself precipitated. WE wouldn’t have a debt crisis were it not for the bailouts, the crash, the lost jobs and the soaring cost of jobless benefits that can be laid at Wall Street’s door. (The debt was also caused by tax cuts for the rich, and the bankers certainly don’t want to talk about that.) For those diversionary debt tactics alone, Wall Street should be occupied until it pays to replace the jobs it destroyed.
3. Wall Street profited from the bailouts and remains unaccountable: Taxpayers provided trillions of dollars in cash and asset guarantees to the wealthiest bankers and hedge fund managers in the world. But nothing was extracted from them in return. Here’s one egregious example: Goldman Sachs paid $550 million in SEC fines for selling mortgage-related securities that were designed to fail so that a large hedge fund could bet against them. The securities failed as planned and the hedge fund pocketed $1 billion in profits. But after we bailed out AIG, Goldman Sachs picked up nearly $12 billion for similar bets that AIG had insured. Goldman Sachs collected 100 cents on the dollar and those dollars were ours.
4. The super-rich are getting richer: When the economy was crashing during 2008, high frequency traders in hedge funds and banks made upwards of $20 billion from the turmoil. This trading scam provided no redeeming value to our economy. Rather, it was a hidden tax on our sorrows — a transfer of funds from the many to the few. In 2010 the top hedge fund managers “earned” over $2 million an HOUR! The top 25 hedge fund managers took in as much as 650,000 teachers.
5. The super-rich are paying lower and lower taxes: While the government pleads poverty when asked to create a massive jobs program, our financial elites use every loophole available to avoid taxes. In 1995, the 400 wealthiest families paid about 30 percent of their income in taxes (after all deductions). Today their effective rate is less than 16 percent. And for what? What did society gain from their retained wealth? Not jobs, not debt reduction, only more Wall Street gambling.
6. Financial elites pay lower taxes than their secretaries: Venture capitalists and private equity fund managers, as well as some hedge fund elites, get a fantastic tax break called “carried interest” that allows them to pay a top rate of 15 percent on their income (rather than the 35 percent top rate regular people pay). This tax break, originally designed for small business partnerships, has made the mega-rich even richer. You might be wondering why this outrageous tax break continues for billionaires. The answer is simple: these elites are pouring money into Washington to make sure that Republicans and even some Democrats keep the loophole in place.
7. None of those who caused the crash have been prosecuted: Raj Rajaratnam, the hedge fund billionaire, is going to the hoosegow for insider trading. Bernie Madoff is in prison for life for his Ponzi scheme. And about 40 others have pleaded guilty to insider trading crimes. Yet none of these scoundrels, as immoral as they may be, had much to do with the financial crash. They didn’t peddle toxic mortgage-related securities. They didn’t push predatory loans. They didn’t rate garbage securities as if they were gold. None of these perps pumped up the housing bubble. Those who did are still roaming free, financially armed and dangerous.
8. Wall Street is much too big and its salaries are much too high: The financial sector is supposed to be an intermediary that turns our savings into productive investments. It’s not supposed to be a casino and it’s not supposed to dwarf the rest of the productive economy. But after years of deregulatory foolishness, it has metastasized to destructive levels. From the 1930s until the mid-1970s, financial sector employees earned the same as those in other sectors, relative to their skills and experience. That’s the way it should be. But since we embarked on the long march of financial deregulation and tax breaks for the super-rich, people working in the financial sector have seen their incomes skyrocket compared to everyone else. The bigger that gap, the more danger we face.
9. Wall Street still owns the regulators: When you put too much money in the hands of the few and when you deregulate finance, you get a financial casino. That’s what happened in the years leading up to the 1929 crash, and it happened again in 2008. During the New Deal we regulated the tar out of finance, ending their reign of speculative terror. And it worked for nearly a quarter of a century as financial crises virtually disappeared. Since financial deregulation reappeared over the last 30 years, there have been over 180 financial crises around the world. So you would think after 2008, we’d be back to reining in the bankers. But, no…our leaders are afraid to stifle “financial innovation” (See next point.) The Dodd-Frank bill is weak and getting weaker, thanks to intensive Wall Street lobbying. High government officials still believe that Wall Street can lead the nation forward. The kids are telling us that we should shut down the casinos now.
10. Financial innovation is a joke: Washington genuflects before the gods of financial innovation: the adjustable no-money down mortgages with resetting teaser rates, the synthetic collateralized debt obligations that turn garbage mortgages into AAA securities, the credit default swaps that are financial insurance policies without regulation, the nanosecond trading programs that flip millions of stocks per second while milking slower investors, and the myriad of ways to make enormous financial bets using little or none of your own money. They tremble at the thought of whispering anything that might stifle these highly profitable Wall Street inventions. They are wowed by trading measured in nanoseconds, by the alphabet soup of securities, by the dark pools of financial trading and most of all by financial billionaires and their lobbyists. But to paraphrase former fed chair Paul Volcker, the only real financial innovation in the last 25 years is the ATM machine. The rest are simply gambling games designed to enrich Wall Street’s elites who pocket the winnings and pawn off the losses on us.

LETTER TO THE RULING CLASS
You control our world. You’ve poisoned the air we breathe, contaminated the water we drink, and copyrighted the food we eat. We fight in your wars, die for your causes, and sacrifice our freedoms to protect you. You’ve liquidated our savings, destroyed our middle class, and used our tax dollars to bailout your unending greed. We are slaves to your corporations, zombies to your airwaves, servants to your decadence. You’ve stolen our elections, assassinated our leaders, and abolished our basic rights as human beings. You own our property, shipped away our jobs, and shredded our unions. You’ve profited off of disaster, destabilized our currencies, and raised our cost of living. You’ve monopolized our freedom, stripped away our education, and have almost extinguished our flame. We are hit… we are bleeding… but we ain’t got time to bleed. We will bring the giants to their knees and you will witness our revolution!

NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCES: 30 YEARS OF RESEARCH! / EVERY ARGUMENT AGAINST
LIFE AFTER DEATH BY THE PSEUDO-SKEPTICS, NUTTY DEBUNKERS and GENERAL,
ALL-PURPOSE HATERS IS ADDRESSED IN THIS EYE-OPENING, BOMBSHELL, TOUR DE
FORCE PIECE! –
By Stephanie Lam, Epoch Times, Tuesday, October 4, 2011
NEAR-DEATH FLASHPOINT: JANE KATRA, Ph.D. in Public Health, who also
spoke at the conference, said that she became sensitive to vibrations
and electromagnetic fields after her NDE, and it was difficult for her
to adjust to living in her parents’ house because she became able to
hear various things from different rooms.
Grandma was just resuscitated. She wakes up and tells you a bizarre
story of coming out of her body and going to heaven. Has she developed
psychosis? Was her brain damaged from the lack of oxygen?
After over 30 years of research, scientists have concluded that this is
NOT the case. Instead, they think that this phenomenon is something
today’s science is yet to understand, and that it is an opportunity for
the advancement of science.
The phenomenon was coined near-death experiences (NDEs) in the 1975 book
“Life After Life” by Raymond Moody, M.D. and Ph.D. in philosophy and
psychology. NDEs generally include cognitive, affective, paranormal, and
Examples of NDEs include experiencing a change in one’s perception and
way of thinking, feeling peace or calmness, gaining extrasensory
perception (ESP), going through a review of one’s life and seeing the
effects of one’s actions on others, a feeling of leaving the body,
seeing deceased people and other beings such as angels, and feeling as
if one has entered another dimension.
NDEs are encountered by people of all backgrounds, and most studies find
the prevalence of NDEs to be 10 – 20% of people who have come close to
death. Interest in studying NDEs was sparked after the publication of
Then in 1981, the International Association for Near-Death Studies
(IANDS) was founded “to promote responsible, multi-disciplinary
exploration of near-death and similar experiences, their effects on
people’s lives, and their implications for beliefs about life, death,
and human purpose,” according to the IANDS Web site.
The INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR NEAR-DEATH STUDIES, Inc:
On Sept. 2 – 4, IANDS organized a conference in Durham, N.C., for NDE
researchers to present their findings.
“IMPROVED MENTAL FUNCTIONS WITH AN IMPAIRED BRAIN!”
Bruce Greyson, M.D. and director of the Division of Perceptual Studies
at the University of Virginia, said NDEs are reliable because the
accounts by near-death experiencers (NDErs) of these events remain
unchanged over time. He compared a group of NDErs’ accounts about their
NDEs made 20 years apart and found that they remained closely identical
Greyson believes that NDEs are an indication that the mind is
INDEPENDENT of the brain because impaired brain functions would be
expected during the clinical situation that the NDErs underwent, but his
research found NO corresponding impairment of mental functions in NDErs.
“In most cases, people’s mental functioning is better in the NDE than
[it] is during our normal waking life,” Greyson said during an interview
with The Epoch Times.
“Their thinking is faster, is clearer, is more logical, they have more
control over their chain of thought, their senses are more acute, their
memories are more vivid.
“If you ask somebody about their near-death experience that happened 15
years ago, they tell it as if it happened yesterday. If you ask them
[about] other experiences from their life at the same time, they are
very fuzzy memories, if they have any at all.
“[...] When you think that these experiences, which are characterized by
enhanced thought processes [that] takes place when the brain is NOT
functioning well or sometimes not functioning at all since it is in
cardiac arrest or deep anesthesia — times when brain science would tell
us that you shouldn’t be able to think or perceive or form memories –
it becomes quite clear that we CAN’T explain this thing on the basis of
Eben Alexander, M.D., a neurosurgeon who also spoke at the conference,
had an NDE that’s a case in point. He contracted acute bacterial
meningitis, which damages the neocortex, in 2008 and went into a coma,
spending six (6) days on a ventilator.
The glucose level of his cerebrospinal fluid was 1 mg/dl (milligram per
one-tenth of a liter), while normal levels are between 60 and 80 mg/dl.
When the level drops to 20 mg/dl, the meningitis infection is considered
severe. For days after the coma, Alexander struggled to speak and recall
memories before the coma. No one with this kind of severe brain damage
is expected to fully recover.
However, during his NDE, Alexander had such vivid experiences involving
multiple senses, such as vision, hearing, and smell, that he said he
couldn’t describe how AMAZING it was.
“My brain right now — I think it recovered pretty well — could not do
anything close to what my brain was doing,” Alexander said. “How does a
dying brain end up getting far, far more powerful and able to handle
these tremendous loads of information instantaneously and put it
“SHARED DEATH EXPERIENCES”
Another phenomenon related to NDEs is shared death experiences, in which
a person close to a dying person experiences something with the same
characteristics as NDEs.
Moody first heard about shared death experiences in 1972 from a medical
professor of his. The professor’s mother had a cardiac attack, and when
she was trying to resuscitate her mother, she felt herself leaving her
body and saw her body resuscitating her mother.
As her mother died, she saw her mother in spirit form, and the spirit
met some beings, some of whom she could recognize as people whom her
mother had known. Then, her mother and the other people were sucked into
After over 30 years of research, Moody estimates that shared death
experiences are as common as NDEs. As he studied more of these cases
over the years, he found that the features of shared death experiences
are similar to those of NDEs.
One of the most common features of shared death experiences is that the
shared death experiencer sees the spirit of the dying person, which
appears as a transparent replica of the person, or an oval or sphere of
light [OBLATE SPHEROID] leaving from the head or chest of the dying
person’s physical body, Moody told The Epoch Times in an interview.
Sometimes, the bystander would also experience the life review of the
dying person. A woman in Georgia was documented as having talked with
her husband’s spirit as she saw his life review when he was dying, and
she also saw a being that identified herself as the miscarried daughter
she and her husband had lost.
Moody thinks that shared death experiences act as strong evidence for
the view that THE MIND EXISTS INDEPENDENTLY OF THE BRAIN, because the
people experiencing them are in no way having impaired brain functions
at the time.
“All of the features that I identify as the initial near-death
experiences that I studied years ago are also present in people who have
these experiences at the bedside, who incidentally are NOT ill or
injured,” Moody said during his presentation at the conference.
“There’s nothing wrong with the oxygen flow to their brains, and yet
they have identically the same experiences that I hear from people who
did come close to death.”
Even stronger evidence, as Moody recounted during the interview with The
Epoch Times, was the case of a priest and a nun in South Africa who had
a car accident together and who both had cardiac arrest followed by an
NDE. After they were resuscitated, both recounted the experience of
leaving their bodies and going into a light together with identical
With the amount of research over the past 30 years, Moody said that
“there has now been a genuine — and I would underline ‘genuine’ –
solid step toward rational comprehension of the afterlife.”
Similarly, Greyson said, “The science of near-death experiences is much
further advanced now than it was 30 years ago.”
However, Greyson thinks that there is still more to do in the area of
near-death studies, especially with the modern tools and techniques that
we didn’t have before, and he expects that in the future, we will learn
more about the causes of NDE.
“I think we have just scratched the surface of NDE,” he said.
“Some people with a religious or spiritual background will talk about
the experience being given to us as a gift or coming from some
supernatural cause, and I don’t know how to express that concept in
scientific terms yet.
“But I think that science is a dynamic enterprise, NOT a static one, and
I think sooner or later we will find a way in scientific terms to talk
about something beyond the physical or psychological that is ordered in
a way that we demand scientific concepts will be.
“I think the major advances in the future will be along the lines of
what role the NDE plays in people’s lives and personality development,
and establishing values and beliefs and attitudes and different ways we
can help people benefit from the near-death experience.”

NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCES: 30 YEARS OF DETAILED RESEARCH! –
By Stephanie Lam, Epoch Times, Tuesday, October 4, 2011
It was 1993. Kathleen Elmore was driving through an intersection and a
truck came at her from the left. “That doesn’t look good,” she thought.
“Dying does not hurt,” Elmore said as she recounted the experience at
the International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS) conference
“That whole immense, huge impact felt like somebody just kind of tipped
me on the shoulder, and I went straight up.”
Elmore said that her consciousness went 50 or 60 feet up into a
beautiful white light where she felt “incredible love” and heard
beautiful music. There she met three beings who are “beyond angels,” she
said, and who had helped plan her life before she was born. She had a
conversation with them while watching people rescuing her down below.
After she came back to life, she gained the ability to see the energy
around the earth and people’s collective consciousness, she said.
Episodes that people experience when they are clinically dead or close
to clinical death are dubbed near-death experiences (NDEs) in the 1975
book “Life After Life” by Raymond Moody, M.D. and Ph.D. in philosophy
The book has drawn academics to study the phenomenon, and led to the
foundation of IANDS in 1981 to facilitate near-death research. On Sept.
2 – 4, near-death experiencers (NDErs) and researchers gathered in
Durham, N.C., to share their experiences and findings over the past 30
In Part #1 of this series, we mentioned that Eben Alexander, M.D., had
an NDE while his brain was damaged by acute bacterial meningitis; and
that Bruce Greyson, M.D. and director of the Division of Perceptual
Studies at the University of Virginia, reported that NDErs’ mental
functioning is, in most cases, better during the NDE than usual, and
that they can still remember their NDEs very accurately 20 years after
In this part, we look at the validity of NDEs through their aftereffects
“The STUDY OF AFTEREFFECTS”
During his talk at the IANDS conference, Greyson mentioned that some
“pseudo-skeptics,” as he calls scientists not open to NDE discoveries,
believe that the NDE phenomenon is not something that can be studied
scientifically because NDEs are not something material, and they canNOT
Greyson argued that there have been a lot of studies done on emotions,
though they are not known to be of material existence.
“Are love and fear material?” he asked. “There’s certainly a lot of
scientific research about these things. We can’t see them, but we can
certainly measure the aftereffects, and from their effects, we learn,
scientifically, a lot about them.”
In scientific study, there are many things that we measure indirectly.
For example, physicists’ study of dark matter is NOT through the direct
observation of its existence, but through indirect means such as
calculating the discrepancy of a cosmic body’s mass estimated in
Last week, NASA announced that its Kepler mission confirmed the
existence of an invisible planet, Kepler-19c, by observing the orbit
cycle of a nearby planet, Kepler-19b, which is seen to be influenced by
an unknown gravitational force.
The Kepler team also published a paper in the journal Science on Sept.
16 about the discovery of the planet Kepler-16b orbiting two low-mass
suns. The discovery was made from eclipses, some of which were due to
the two suns obscuring one another.
Using the bubble chamber as an analogy, Greyson argued that NDE can be
studied scientifically. A bubble chamber is a vessel in which subatomic
particles are made to pass through a liquid, leaving a trail of bubbles
on their tracks.
The particles are too small and move at too fast a speed for us to
observe, but by observing the bubbles that form around their tracks, we
can learn about them. Similarly, Greyson said, we can learn about NDEs
from their aftereffects.
“For true scientists, the ultimate authority is experience, not theory,”
Some may think that NDErs must be religious to start with, and their
experiences could be their imagination. However, there are NDErs who
weren’t religious before their NDEs, and Greyson has found that one of
the aftereffects of NDEs is a lowered religiosity. Interestingly, NDErs
also generally have an increased spirituality after their NDEs.
Another thing that Greyson has found in his research is that, contrary
to what most would expect, NDErs are more inclined to use logical
thought after their NDEs than before their NDEs.
Apart from psychological changes, electromagnetic aftereffects are
widely reported. When some NDErs wear wristwatches, the batteries run
down very quickly, or the watches keep a faster or slower time than
normal. Some NDErs make light bulbs go out, or TVs and radios might
change stations when they pass by. Greyson mentioned that one NDEr
cannot be detected by automatic doors.
JANE KATRA, Ph.D. in Public Health, who also spoke at the conference,
said that she became sensitive to vibrations and electromagnetic fields
after her NDE, and it was difficult for her to adjust to living in her
parents’ house because she became able to hear various things from
These aftereffects of NDEs make it difficult for one to deny NDEs as
real experiences, because mere hallucinations or being close to death
would not bring such effects.
Greyson and Mitchell Liester, M.D., are starting a study on the
electromagnetic aftereffects of NDEs. Following the data collection from
a questionnaire, they will conduct studies measuring NDErs’
electromagnetic fields and effects on watches.

By Stephanie Lam, Epoch Times, Tuesday, October 5, 2011
How do you prove or disprove near-death experiences (NDEs), which are
entirely of a spiritual domain?
While near-death experiencers (NDErs) claim that their experiences of
leaving their bodies, going to heaven, and seeing deceased people and
heavenly beings, and so on, are real, many scientists insist that these
are hallucinations due to critical biological states such as the lack of
oxygen in one’s brain.
Yet there is another group of scientists who, after over 30 years of
research, ended up with evidence supportive of NDErs’ accounts.
In the first part of this series, we discussed shared death experiences,
in which someone close to a dying person experiences something similar
Raymond Moody, M.D., Ph.D., told The Epoch Times that shared death
experiencers generally see the spirit of the dying person leaving the
body, and may see them meeting deceased people, experiencing a life
review, going to another realm, and so on.
“All of the features that I identify as the initial near-death
experiences that I studied years ago are also present in people who have
these experiences at the bedside, who incidentally are not ill or
injured,” Moody said during his presentation at the International
Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS) conference this year.
“There’s nothing wrong with the oxygen flow to their brains, and yet
they have identically the same experiences that I hear from people who
did come close to death.”
This, Moody thinks, overturns the conventional scientific hypothesis
that NDEs are hallucinations caused by critical states in the brain.
However, it still does not provide solid proof that NDErs’ accounts are
Yet, there are other documented cases the validity of which is difficult
to disprove using conventional scientific explanations. For example,
there are cases when NDErs see deceased relatives who they did NOT know
had died, or whom they hadn’t even met.
Neurosurgeon Eben Alexander, M.D., had such an experience during a coma
caused by acute bacterial meningitis. During the IANDS conference, he
recounted that, at certain points during his NDE, he experienced being a
speck on a butterfly’s wings, and was accompanied by a being whom he
regarded as a guardian angel.
Being an orphan, Alexander did not know about his biological siblings
until recent years, and by the time he got into contact with them, one
of his sisters had already died. One day after his NDE, he looked at a
photograph that his siblings gave him, and found that the “guardian
angel” was the sister who had died.
Another interesting case, described by Moody during an interview with
The Epoch Times, involved a priest and a nun who had a car accident
together in South Africa. Both of them were resuscitated from cardiac
arrest and described a joint NDE of leaving their bodies and going into
a light together, with identical details.
“VERIFIED NDE ACCOUNTS”
There are also NDE accounts that are directly verified. NDE researchers
Robert and Suzanne Mays recounted several such stories at the conference
and during an interview with The Epoch Times.
One case involved a man severely injured in a car accident on a foggy
night. He reported rising out of his body, flying over to a house, and
jumping up and down and yelling for help outside a window of the second
floor. A man heard the NDEr and called the police.
After the police came, another man w
The process of removing the cabal that has controlled most of the world for the past 300 years is almost complete, according to sources directly involved in the takedown. The takedown is being done by the world’s military, police and intelligence agencies. The group being taken down is the Thule Society, Skull & Bones Nazi conglomerate headed by George Bush Senior. This group was trying to start world war 3 in order to reduce the world’s population by 85% and start a fascist world government. Instead, they will be bankrupted and put in jail.
Evidence of the takedown is now becoming visible for all to see. For example the IMF, supposedly the world’s lender of last resort, is saying they have no money to help the Euro. This is publicly available evidence that the post war power structure is ending. The best way to understand what is happening is to take a look at this map:
This is a map of the real global economic situation. It shows the cumulative current account surpluses and deficits of the world’s countries. The countries that appear green on the map are the countries that have lent money to the countries that appear red. This is money based on actual physical trade so it is backed by reality unlike the trillions and quadrillions sitting on bank books that were created through fraud.
What has happened is that the green countries that have real money stopped lending to countries still controlled by the fascists (the G6: Germany, the United States, England, France,Italy and their small group of slave states) starting in the fall of 2008. That is the real reason for the so-called Lehman shock.
Looking back, the titanic struggle for control of the global financial system and hence global power, has been dramatic.
The fascists countered the initial green attack by using fiat money to ramp up global oil prices. They also tried to create a starvation crisis by paying Western farmers with fiat money to grow “eco-fuel,” instead of food. These efforts failed because the fascists no longer had a lock grip on the world’s oil and food supplies.
The fascists also tried to renege on their debts by issuing a new currency they wanted to call the Amero. This was rejected because the green countries rightfully said they did not want their hard-earned dollars to be devalued. Instead the green countries acted to preserve the value of their hard earned dollars by refusing to accept all dollars created inside the US after 2008. Evidence for this can be found in trade numbers showing such things as a year on year 77% drop in US imports of Japanese cars or in the 90% drop in the Baltic Dry Index (the price of shipping).
This explains why the US dollar has not collapsed despite the announced printing of countless trillions by the US branch of the Federal Reserve Board. These dollars are simply not entering the international financial system although they are goosing the Dow Jones Index.
The fascists won a year’ respite when they promised “change” under Obama. That ended in 2009 after Obama showed through his actions that he was part of the fascist continuum.
Since then the fascists have been acting like unemployed junkies, selling off anything they can and writing false checks to pay their dealer. For example, they melted down and sold giant silver machines used for the Manhattan project. They have also resorted to outright theft.
If you look at the green countries on the map you can see their targets. They attacked Japan with a nuclear tsunami weapon and an engineered nuclear crisis in order to try to extort (unfortunately with some success) money from Japan.
They also overthrew a few dictators like Mubarak in Egypt to steal their money (they got Mubarak’s $70 billion slush fund). Then they invaded Libya to steal that country’s oil and over $100 billion in assets. They also killed the members of the youth division of Norway’s ruling party in order to try to extort that countries $1.5 trillion rainy day fund.
Since they are bullies who are too scared to attack countries that can defend themselves (Russia and China), the next targets of these extortionist thugs would appear to be weaker green countries like Saudi Arabi, Algeria and Venezuela.
These moves have bought the fascists some time. However, that time is quickly running out. Recent illegal maneuvers to push down precious metals prices will not help.
The fascists also tried to carry out a coup against the US patriots in the Pentagon and the agencies by setting off nuclear bombs in New York and Washington. Instead these bombs were taken by patriotic forces and used to blow up the warehouse facilities of the underground bases the fascists were hoping to hide in after they started World War 3.
The bombs were set off in in a manner designed to prevent human casualties. Reports of 30,000 dead are false.
Sources in the KGB, the Pentagon and MI6 all confirm that the nuclear warhead used to trigger the tsunami in Japan and the two blown up underground in the US were part of four warheads that were stolen from the Russian submarine Kursk. That means one more rogue nuclear weapon is still in their hands and probably located in Europe.
It is hard to know when the final take down of the cabal will proceed but the situation is now down to a few technical legal details. This is because the authorities that are taking down the cabal want to do everything legally and constitutionally.
However, the take-down has already begun. In addition to thousands of bankers who have already been arrested, some big fish are being targeted. Public legal proceedings have already begun, for example, against Tony Blair, Nikolas Sarkozy and IMF head Christine Lagarde. Putin, for his part, recently fired his long term finance minister Alexei Kudrin because he had been compromised by the fascists. The Chairman of UBS was also removed because of his cabal connections.
The fascists have also been trying to negotiate their way out of this situation. George Bush Senior has contacted a senior US White Dragon Society member and offered “all the money in the world,” in exchange for “being left alone.” Unfortunately for the Nazis, many of them have tried to cling to power too long and are no longer in a position to negotiate immunity for themselves. White Dragon sources in the US agencies say top cabalists like the last four US presidents will go to jail.
WHO RULES THE EARTH? by Janet Kira Lessin

I love your information and have been following it for sometime as an avid Sitchin reader.
I am an advanced student of the conspiracy and would love your help tying it to ancient writings.
Who from the old text, is still bend on global domination? Who is really behind the Illuminati? I have many books that say it is the old Babylonian line (Enlil’s line merged with Marduk’s info) that later merged/infiltrated the Masons that currently fuel the New World Order Globalist take over.
Is there an ancient god (s) still controlling Earth for his/her selfish and greedy wants just like up to 500 BC?
Draco vs. Sirius
I want to follow the Enki/Enlil battle forward to see how this is playing out in modern terms/times.
We collaborated with Blue Cloud a few years back. He traced all the myths looking at the symbols that represent the various gods and goddesses, identified who was killed when and ascertained that the ones that remain that are probably behind the Illuminati are Utu (Shamesh), Nannar and Innana. They are all Enlilites.
Nannar is the son of Enlil. Utu and Innana are twins, children of Nannar. Nannar’s symbol is Islam. Inanna is the Statue of Liberty and the owl configuration behind the design of Washington, DC and the owl at Bohemian Grove.
That seems logical.
So why are those Anunnaki so dark?
Thoth tells us in “The Emerald Tablets of Thoth” that the Council members were being taken over by reptilian (snake like) entities that came through other dimensions accessed from underneath the ground, They controlled and manipulated the Anunnaki to their own agenda.
David Icke’s modern information seems to correlate with that.
There’s some additional effect, weakness that happened with those born here on Earth. I believe Nannar was born here on Earth, was the first born son of Enlil. And his children, Utu (Shamesh) and Inanna were definitely born here.
So the three of them may be “possessed”, hybrid Anunnaki and interdimensional reptilian.
They apparently thrive better in a different atmosphere, one with more radiation and heat. Thus they’ve manipulated reality to create global warming and earthquakes designed to activate nuclear reactors intentionally built on fault lines.
HAARP is being used to accelerate this process of “terra forming” planet Earth for occuplation by Illuminati/Grey/Reptilian factions aligned with the dark/negative side of Creation/Force/Source.
There are powers at least equal if not more powerful balancing all on the light/good side of Creation/Force/Source.
Apparently we now have intervention to assist us (humanity) in our ascension process and the forces that remain are in their death throes as they no longer have backing from the Reptilians/Greys.
Keep in mind, there are also good individual Reptiians and Greys. GodSource/Consciousness incarnates everywhere to balance dark/negative forces.
I have personal/channelled type information that I’ve received.
Enki, Ninmah and Thoth have supported humanity’s growth and evolution to consciousness since they discovered the “Halls of Amenti” and the beings known as the “Galzu”. They are facilitating the process that will allow humanity to be invited to join the Federation of Planets, Love and Light.
After Sodom and Gomorrah Thoth took Ninmah, Enki and Enki’s wife, Damkina, to the Halls of Amenti where they became “enlightened” and made totally aware of the universal design and scheme of things and were thus invited to join the Federation. Now totally aware of all beings who are here to assist this solar system and this part of the Galaxy, these Anunnaki are more conscious of their actions and the subsequent repercussions of their actions and are thus humbled and apologetic to any and all who they may have harmed, consciously or subconsciously.
They are now in an “enlightened” state of being and have subsequently reconciled with all factions of the Anunnaki, especially in light that there are so few of them that remain alive. They realize they needed to correct past differences and wrongs they’ve acted against one another and are now all becoming conscious, aware and apologetic of their actions against humanity. They are remorseful and here to facilitate humanity’s ascension process.
While the Anunnaki took millions of years to evolve to this level (in fact they missed the last window of opportunity and were left behind until they “got it), it is taking humanity a much shorter time to accomplish the same thing.
The ascension process was accelerated by reincarnation, birth, death, short lives continually cycling in and out of life and the bardo/heaven area around this planet, constantly reconnecting with universal consciousness then going temporarily unconscious crossing through the veil of forgetfulness into human incarnations. Enki unknowingly facilitated this process by denying humans longevity. He was unwittingly led to do so through the dream process which was manipulated by Galzu, the head of the Galzu (which kept Enki, Ninmah and Enlil on Earth to faciliate the evolutionary process for humans).
Galzu are beings who “reside” at the side of GodSource (symbolically). They have total awareness of all of existence. They are actually multi-dimensional beings able to focus their attention and “be” wherever and whenever they desire in any time, space or place.
After Enki and Ninmah became enlightened, aware of totality, they systematically retrieved their kin.
Inanna, Utu and Nannar have been reprogrammed, the demonic entities that possesed and controlled them exorcised. They now have full awareness and control and are totally supportive of assisting humanity as well.
The ones who remain in control of the Earth are the humanoid/Anunnaki hybrids who are demonically possesed.
All who are programmed and/or possessed will be exorcised and given therapy and deprogramming assistance necessary to clear their energy centers and return them to full consciousness, awareness and choice.
Those who choose goodness, love and light will ascend and be reborn anew into the new Earth at a higher vibratory frequency and move on. This is known as the ascension.
Those who chose darkness and the games played in that reality will continue on that course on another variation of the Earth. Life will devolve. Time will begin again. The games start anew with new variations on the theme designed to create more diversity and adventures which are fed into the Akashic records for others to vicariously enjoy when they desire, much like we act out our violent tendencies and explore fantasies by going to a movie.
There is also another variation, another dimension or timeline where we continue in this virtual reality and experience life on this Earth but with a new paradigm, one in which we are in a “Star Trekkian” society, united in the Federation.
Here we enjoy interplanetary peace and explore the Universe, meet, exchange and experience on a loving level.
And that’s reality how I perceive it.
But, I can’t “proove” a thing. This is only what I believe in this moment and when more information comes along, I will go with the flow and incorporate those things that I chose, that I like and desire into the equation and focus my time, energy and desires on creating peace for me and mine.
I choose love, peace, harmony, bliss. That’s the timeline within with I chose to reside.
Thanks for asking.
Love, Blessings, Aloha,
