Why do people act differently in groups then when by themselves? Is there truth to the idea of the “madness of crowds”? Is Mass Formation Psychosis a real experience? And if so, what are the operative mechanics behind it? Since the Classical Period to the present, scholars, rulers, priest class, and leaders of all stripes have sought to understand how to influence – even control – the mass of human beings within their spheres of influence. Some have believed that various occult forces, those of magic, can be invoked to assist – Bruno appears to hint at it and paid the price – more recently others look to a mysterious ‘Collective Unconscious’ and psycho-biological drives as the medium of ‘mass management.’

Regardless, both schools of thought AND practice have a great deal to teach us about past, current, and predicting future events as we examine the power of symbols, rituals, mass media, crises creation and management, manipulation of idealism, and the dualling heads of Hope and Fear in influencing and controlling large groups of people. Some scriptures say, “The gods are scoundrels!” and others that “The gods come through for us with effort.” Which is it? Or maybe both. If so, it is best to know the rules by which the gods and humans in ‘the know’ play this cosmic game of life so we can play on equal terms – and win the prize of ultimate freedom.
We are not alone on our spiritual journey. We are supported by a host of “Unknown Superiors” or invisible allies that constantly seek to uphold us on our Pilgrims Progress. By seeking a deeper understanding of our spiritual symbols, and using them in our daily meditations and prayers, we can strengthen ourselves inwardly and bring ourselves one step closer to God’s promised Kingdom — “Via Crucis!”

Half of all Young Men Who Got Jabbed for COVID and Developed Myocarditis Now Have PERMANENT Heart Damage – Natural News, October 26, 2023

In a recent appearance on Megyn Kelly’s podcast, Dr. Drew Pinsky talked about the “breathtaking” findings of a new study showing that 50 percent of all young men who got “vaccinated” for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) and developed myocarditis as a result now have a permanently damaged heart.

You may recall that public health authorities, after first insisting that the COVID jab-myocarditis link was a conspiracy theory, eventually fessed up to the fact that the Operation Warp Speed shots do, in fact, cause heart damage – but only temporarily, they claimed. We now know that they were lying about this, too. More here.

Viruses Never Proved to Exist: Still The Greatest Suppressed Story of our Time – Substack, October 31, 2023

As soon as I began writing about COVID in the spring of 2020, I made the case that SARS-CoV-2 hadn’t been proved to exist. I then met Tom Cowan, Andrew Kaufman, and Christine Massey. I became aware of the work of Stefan Lanka. They were making a wide challenge about viruses in general:

No actual isolation; no proof of existence; instead, a parade of false claims and obfuscations from official sources. More here.


Breakthrough in Recycling EV Batteries Can Recover 100% of Aluminum and 98% of Lithium Thanks to Swedish Scientists – Good News Network, October 19, 2023

Swedish researchers say they have developed a new method of recycling batteries from electric vehicles that allows recovery of 100 percent of the aluminum and 98 percent of the lithium. Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology have presented the efficient way to recycle metals from spent batteries, and at the same time minimize the loss of valuable raw materials such as nickel, cobalt and manganese.

Furthermore, no expensive or harmful chemicals are required in the process because the researchers use oxalic acid—an organic acid that can be found in the plant kingdom. More here.

Hidden Beneath Antarctic Ice for Eons, Scientists Have Made a Chilling Ancient Discovery : An Ancient Land Frozen in Time – Debrief, October 25, 2023

A team of researchers says they have discovered a massive ancient landscape beneath Antarctic ice, where it has remained preserved for eons. Formed close to 34 million years ago, the East Antarctic Ice Sheet (EAIS) has seen significant change over the course of the last several geological epochs, with its ancient ice retreating and advancing like the ebb and flow of ocean tides, resulting in variations in ice coverage that have altered the Antarctic landscape.

While scientists recognize that it is rare to discover landscapes that have been preserved well enough to offer a record of the way ice conditions appeared long ago, a team of scientists now reports the discovery of “an extensive relic pre-glacial landscape” which, despite remaining covered by ice for millions of years, remains remarkably well preserved. The new findings, led by researchers at the universities of Durham and Newcastle, were published in the journal Nature Communications. Read more here.

“Wiping Gaza Off the Map”: Big Money Agenda. Confiscating Palestine’s Maritime Natural Gas Reserves – Substack, October 23, 2023

As outlined by Felicity Arbuthnot with foresight 10 years ago in a December, 30 2013 article:
“Israel is set to become a major exporter of gas and some oil, “If All Goes to Plan.”

In the current context, Israel’s “All Goes to Plan” option consists in bypassing Palestine and “Wiping Gaza off the Map,” as well confiscating ALL Gaza’s maritime offshore gas reserves, worth billions of dollars. Read more here.

In The Corridors of Power – The US and Israel are Daring Russia, China and the World to go to War to Save Arab Palestine – John Helmer, October 2023

It comes to this now, again. Call it a repeat of the SS ultimatum to the Warsaw Ghetto of April 1943 – evacuate and we’ll give you a small chance of surviving, or stay and we’ll kill you for certain. Following the embrace of President Joseph Biden and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the  US has endorsed the Israeli plan to force the evacuation of the Palestinians from Gaza City to designated camps in the south. There Israeli forces will allow convoys of humanitarian aid to enter from Egypt and unload after Israeli forces have inspected the cargoes. The new southern zone will be cordoned off by an Israeli ring of fire, and everything north of the line, including Gaza City will be destroyed, hospitals included.  

This formula has been pressed on Egypt, the other Arab states, China, and Russia to accept by the UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, a Portuguese government retiree, and his deputy for humanitarian affairs, Martin Griffiths, a British government retiree. They have emphasized there is no alternative to the destruction of Gaza, and its full absorption into the state of Israel. Reinforcing them, the US has cast its veto of all resolutions proposed in the UN Security Council (UNSC) by Russia, China and the Arab states to create humanitarian corridors under a ceasefire. China is preparing a new UNSC resolution to face the US veto shortly, according to a statement by Zhang Jun during Wednesday’s UNSC debate in New York. Read more here.

A Data Historian Looks Back in Horror – Chronicles, October 2023

Peter Turchin sees disaster brewing as the West has overproduced a restless, revolutionary, elite. Is the study of history a science? Peter Turchin thinks so. The Russian-American “complexity scientist” departs from the traditional view of history as a subject in the humanities and is among the leaders of a faction who believe history adheres to social science’s rigid rules and abstract theories the way homo economicus behaves in the economic realm.

Large Scale U.S. Military Buildup in the Middle East: Is America Preparing to Launch World War III? – SOTT, October 26, 2023

“With an Armada of 13 Warships, Over 100 Fighter Jets, Cruise Missiles, Spy Planes and 2,000 Amphibious Special Forces Massing in the Region”

An October 18 article by Nick Allen in London’s Daily Mail confirms that the U.S. had “foreknowledge” of the October 7, 2023 Hamas attack directed against Israeli civilians.

The report acknowledges that:
“Within hours of the horrific onslaught on Israel by Hamas on Oct. 7 the U.S. began moving warships, jets and special forces to the region.”

Known to military analysts, such a deployment requires considerable advanced preparation and cannot be improvised “within hours.” Read more here.

No Human Being Can Exist – N+1, October 27, 2023

How can a person make up for seven decades of misrepresentation and willful distortion in the time allotted to a sound bite? 

At any moment, without warning, at any time of the day or night, any apartment building in the densely populated Gaza Strip can be struck by an Israeli bomb or missile. Some of the stricken buildings simply collapse into layers of concrete pancakes, the dead and the living alike entombed in the shattered ruins. Often, rescuers shouting “hadan sami’ana?” (“can anyone hear us?”) hear calls for help from survivors deep in the rubble, but without heavy lifting equipment all they can do is helplessly scrabble at the concrete slabs with crowbars or their bare hands, hoping against hope to pry open gaps wide enough to get survivors or the injured out.

October 7 Testimonies Reveal Israel’s Military ‘Shelling’ Israeli Citizens With Tanks, Missiles – The Gray Zone, October 27, 2023

Israel’s military received orders to shell Israeli homes and even their own bases as they were overwhelmed by Hamas militants on October 7. How many Israeli citizens said to have been “burned alive” were actually killed by friendly fire?
Several new testimonies by Israeli witnesses to the October 7 Hamas surprise attack on southern Israel adds to growing evidence that the Israeli military killed its own citizens as they fought to neutralize Palestinian gunmen. More here.

Remember What Happened Right Before 9/11? It’s Happening Again – The Corbett Report, September 10, 2023

Remember way back in the year 2000, when the Taliban took over large swaths of Afghanistan and set about eradicating the nation’s poppy crop that feeds the world opium supply? 

Of course you do. Well, guess what? It’s happening again.That’s right. After Uncle Sam’s ignominious retreat from the graveyard of empires in 2021, the Taliban infamously regained control of the country and set about reinstituting their campaign to ban the cultivation of opium poppies. And, once again, the results of that ban have been nothing short of remarkable. More here.

Thousands of Jewish Protesters Shut Down NYC Grand Central Station with Hundreds of Jews Arrested for Supporting Peace and Cease Fire in Gaza – Health Impact News, October 18, 2023.

Friday, October 27,2023) something happened in New York City that some say has not happened in over 20 years: Thousands of people turned out for a peaceful protest and shut down Grand Central Station, one of the largest commuter rail stations in the world, in an act of civil disobedience where hundreds of people were arrested.

The Zionist-funded corporate media and alternative media in the United States had a difficult time covering this event since it did not fit their current narrative regarding the war in Israel and Gaza right now, where they want the whole world to think this is a war between Jews and Muslims, with all Jewish people supporting Israel’s actions, and all Muslim people supporting the Palestinians and Hamas. Whoops! This protest against the war calling for a cease fire and peace, was led by American Jews, NOT Palestinians. Read more here.

NYC’s ‘Reticketing Center’ Gives Migrants Free One-Way Airfares to Anywhere Else But Here – New York Post, October 27, 2023

New York City is now steering migrants to a new “reticketing center” where they can secure a free one-way plane ticket anywhere in the world — as Mayor Eric Adams scrambles to free up space in the Big Apple’s already-overburdened shelter system.

The center, which is located in a repurposed church office in the East Village, was recently set up with the sole purpose of purchasing tickets for asylum seekers who want to leave town, City Hall officials confirmed to The Post. More here.

Whistleblowers Claim CIA Recruited Patsy Hijackers for 9/11, Hid Truth From FBI – Natural News, October 31, 2023

At the height of COVID when all eyes were on the “pandemic,” the sworn declaration of a 9/11 investigator with the Office of Military Commissions (OMC) was released, showing that the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack on the World Trade Center was an inside job led by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

Part of the Department of Defense’s (DOD) Military Commissions Defense Organization, the OMC was tasked with looking into the details of 9/11, producing this whistleblower testimony around July 20, 2021, when nobody was paying attention to such things. Read more here.

This is a Moment of Great Moral Clarity – Substack, October 30, 2023

Britain’s two main political parties each made an example this week of an MP brave enough to break ranks and call for an end to the mass slaughter of Palestinians in Gaza.

The ruling Conservative party sacked Paul Bristow MP from his government post after he wrote to Prime Minister Rishi Sunak: “A permanent ceasefire would save lives and allow for a continued column of humanitarian aid [to] reach the people who need it the most.” More here.


Startling New Poll Finds Political Violence Gaining a Mainstream Foothold – Times, October 25, 2023

Two months after Donald Trump egged on his supporters as they violently marched on the U.S. Capitol, the Public Religion Research Institute and the Brookings Institution decided to start asking Americans about their stomach for political violence. The way they measured this was asking if respondents agreed that “because things have gotten so far off track, true American patriots may have to resort to violence in order to save our country.” 

That first time, in March 2021, pollsters found 15% of Americans agreed. More than two years and eight surveys later, the pollsters found the support for that statement rising to 23%. It’s the first time they found more than 1 in 5 Americans open to condoning political violence. Put another way: the chaos unleashed on Congress on Jan. 6, 2021, is going mainstream. That has seismic consequences for the country in ways that neither party properly appreciates. Read more here.

Why Do UFO Sightings Keep Happening Near Nuclear Sites? – Vice, October 20, 2023

From the Fukushima Daichi nuclear plant after a disaster to a U.S. missile base, UFOs have a concerning affinity for nuclear-based sites. 

The Enmyoin Temple in the Fukushima prefecture of Japan is now known colloquially by a different name, said its Chief Monk, Tomonori Izumi: “The Miracle Temple.” 

“I don’t know if it was some God or some powerful being in a UFO, but I believe that some invisible power really did come to save us,” said Izumi. On March 11 2011, the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant was the site of one of the worst nuclear disasters ever after an earthquake and subsequent tsunami caused its electrical grid to fail. The simultaneous disasters laid waste to much of the surrounding area, but “miraculously, the temple was untouched.”

“The UFO’s came after the explosion. There were so many of them. I was shocked,” said the monk in the fourth episode of the VICE Studio’s Netflix docuseries series Encounters: “Lights Over Fukushima.” Read more here.

Interest Rate for 30-Year Fixed Mortgage Rises to 8.45% – The Highest it Has Been Since 2000 – Natural News, October 19, 2023

The interest rate for the 30-year fixed mortgage, one of the most popular kinds of mortgages in the United States, just hit a record-high of 8.45 percent for the first time since 2000. This is not the first time this month that the 30-year fixed mortgage’s average interest rate actually jumped above the eight percent mark.

It has gone below eight percent to 7.98 percent on Oct. 11 before steadily climbing back up to its current rate of 8.45 percent. The average rate for a 30-year fixed mortgage was as low as three percent just two years ago. More here.

Context Is Everything – Substack, October 23, 2023

I often get asked about an image I’ve had cause to include in several of my articles over the years. It depicts a television camera capturing a knife attack in such a way as to completely flip the reality of who is attacking and who is being attacked. People’s perceptions of an entire nation can be fundamentally altered by simply pointing a camera in a different direction and it’s not just literal photographs that are manipulated to provide misleading contexts, either.

Think about the lies, damned lies and bar charts of the statisticians, who want you to be DEATHLY AFRAID of their (lying, manipulative, phoney, doctored and conveniently color-coded!) global average temperature charts showing the last 140 years of (mostly fake) global warming data: Read more here.

March 9, 2022… Will Live In Infamy – ZeroHedge, October 30, 2023

Where were you on March 9, 2022, when President Biden signed the death warrant on American freedom? On that day, in a hushed ceremony at the White House without the approval of Congress, the states or the American people, Biden signed into law Executive Order 14067. Buried in his order are a few paragraphs, titled Section 4. The language in Section 4 makes Order 14067 the most treacherous act by a sitting president in the history of our republic.

That’s because Section 4 sets the stage for legal government surveillance of all U.S. citizens, total control over your bank accounts and purchases and the ability to silence all dissenting voices for good. In this new war on freedom, they aren’t coming for your guns. No, they’re thinking much bigger than that. They’re coming for your money. More here.
