James Howard Kunstler, the author of The Long Emergency, Too Much Magic, and The Geography of Nowhere will describe how the American people’s consensus about reality was broken and how we are likely to recover from the civilizational problems that broken consensus entailed.

Mr. Kunstler will argue that there is a pernicious group psychology at work that proceeds from the terror of losing the comforts of modern life as our techno-industrial economy enters a state of collapse. That collapse is being provoked by very real on-the-ground reordering of resource access, especially fossil fuels, and the interplay of that with the perversities lately introduced into the global scaffold of finance and credit.

Political opportunists have taken advantage of this collective state of mind to seek ever-expanding powers of surveillance, censorship, cancellation, and juridical harassment in an increasingly malevolent campaign to retain power. It has become a collective control neurosis, growing worse as events and circumstances actually spin out of control.

The fact is that power is inexorably devolving downward. Our federal government grows increasingly ineffectual, untrustworthy, and impotent, while states and great cities also fail politically and financially. The macro trend in the big picture is deep economic contraction, re-localization of decision-making, and the re-scaling of all our activities, including manufacturing, commerce, finance, and technological enterprise. 
I’m convinced that the Great Lakes region will be at the center of an internally-focused North American economy when the hallucination of oil-powered globalism dissolves. Places like Buffalo, Cleveland, and Detroit will have a new life, but not at the scale of the twentieth century.

James Howard Kunstler is the author of The Long Emergency, Too Much Magic, and The Geography of Nowhere, plus the four-volume Word Made by Hand series of novels dramatizing the post-collapse American scene, plus a score of other books. His political blog, Clusterfuck Nation, comes out Monday and Friday mornings at www.kunstler.com. A selection of those blog-posts from 2017 to present, was published in Nov., 2023, with the title CrazyLand.  He lives in the upper Hudson Valley two hundred miles north of New York City.
In 1966, Kunstler graduated from New York City’s High School of Music & Art, and attended the State University of New York at Brockport, where he majored in theater.

After college, Kunstler worked as a reporter and feature writer for a number of newspapers, and finally as a staff writer for Rolling Stone. During the 1970s and 1980s, Kunstler worked “a lot of odd jobs, from orderly in the psychiatric wing of the hospital, to digging holes for percolation tests in housing subdivisions”.

In 1975, he began writing books and lecturing full-time. Kunstler’s blog states that he has lectured at Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Dartmouth, Cornell, MIT, RPI, and the University of Virginia, has appeared before professional organizations such as the AIA, the APA, and the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

Kunstler lectured on topics related to suburbia, urban development, and the challenges of what he calls “the global oil predicament”, and a resultant change in the “American Way of Life.” He lectured at the TED Conference, the American Institute of Architects, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the International Council of Shopping Centers, the National Association of Science and Technology, as well as at numerous colleges and universities, including Yale, MIT, Harvard, Cornell, University of Illinois, DePaul, Texas A & M, the USMA, and Rutgers University.

As a journalist, Kunstler wrote articles for The Atlantic Monthly, Slate.com, Rolling Stone, The New York Times Sunday Magazine, and its op-ed page where he covered environmental and economic issues. Kunstler is also a supporter of the movement known as New Urbanism.

His career peaked with the popularising of the concept of peak oil, for which he was a prominent spokesman, such as in the 2004 documentary The End of Suburbia. His 2005 book The Long Emergency became an oft-cited reference for the predicted imminent collapse of human civilisation. However, oil supplies increased due to fracking, and the collapse did not happen during the timeframe Kunstler predicted.

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

Artificial Intelligence Systems Excel at Imitation, but Not Innovation – APS, December 12, 2023

Artificial intelligence (AI) systems are often depicted as sentient agents poised to overshadow the human mind. But AI lacks the crucial human ability of innovation, according to findings published in Perspectives on Psychological Science. 

While children and adults alike can solve problems by finding novel uses for everyday objects, AI systems often lack the ability to view tools in a new way, researchers at the University of California, Berkeley concluded. Read more here.

The 6 next big things in AI and data for 2023 – FastCompany, November 28, 2023

One year ago, the appearance of OpenAI’s ChatGPT set off an AI arms race among Big Tech companies. Now it also has corporate America scrambling to reengineer key business functions, with machine learning playing a central role. Amid a fog of AI hype, however, the application of the technology in business is still very much a work in progress. While many efforts remain in the realm of R&D, some intrepid companies are helping push AI toward paying dividends in the near term. More here.

China’s Humanoid Robot Factories to Go Online in 2025, HALF of Human Labor Force to be Eliminated – Natural News, December 8, 2023

The year 2030 is shaping up to be the endgame year for a multitude of major globalist projects, which include humanoid robots that will replace much of the human labor force, both blue-collar and white-collar.

Communist China says it plans to begin unleashing its own humanoid robots, one of which is called GR-1, as soon as 2025. GR-1 will supposedly be so advanced as to render many human workers obsolete. Read more here.

Even though Altman, whose firm created ChatGPT, and Hinton are both profiting from AI, they admit, along with more than 350 other prominent figures, that AI could end up killing off most of humanity in the coming years. More here.
CORONA VIRUS – (COVID-19)

David Martin’s Speech: ‘Exposing COVID-19 Crimes’ – Need to Know, December 11, 2023

David Martin said that the virus called “coronavirus” was first described in 1965. Two years later, healthy British military personnel were infected with coronavirus pathogens from the US — “as part of our biological weapons program.”  In 1992, Ralph Baric at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, took a pathogen that used to infect the gut and lungs and altered it with a chimera to make it infect the heart, causing cardiomyopathy. In November 2000, Pfizer patented its first spike protein vaccine. Martin explains why there are HIV fragments in COVID vaccines. The COVID shots were 19 years in the making by the time they were rolled out. Martin exposes more outrageous COVID crimes that include collusion, racketeering, criminal conspiracy murder that are ongoing.

All-cause mortality in the ages of 18 to 55 is now 40% higher in the people that were injected with a biological weapon. David Martin is a regular speaker at TransitionTalks and we expect him in Berkeley Springs in the 2nd quarter of 2024. Read more here.

No ‘Evidence of Benefit’ From Masking Children: Multiple Study Review – Epoch Times, December 6, 2023

In Nordic countries like Sweden and Finland, no deaths of children were reported even though they were not required to wear face masks. 

Wearing face masks to counter COVID-19 provides no significant protective benefit to children, with kids facing potential developmental challenges from masking, according to a recent review of multiple studies.

The review, published in the BMJ Journal on Dec. 2, investigated the effectiveness of wearing face masks in children during COVID-19. Out of the 22 studies analyzed, 16 reported “no effect of mask wearing on infection or transmission.” While the remaining six found a protective association between mask wearing and transmission, these studies had a “critical or serious risk of bias.” Overall, “we fail to find any evidence of benefit from masking children, to either protect themselves or those around them, from COVID-19,” it stated.

People Who Got COVID Jabbed Now Displaying Major Personality Changes Stemming From Vaccine-Induced Neurological Damage, Experts Warn – Natural News, December 13, 2023

At an International Crimes Investigative Committee (ICIC) session held earlier this month, a handful of experts on the subject, many whom you well know, discussed the matter of personality changes that have occurred in people who got “vaccinated” for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19). Attorney Dr. Reiner Fuellmich interviewed Prof. Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, Prof. Dr. Karina Reiss, Dr. Naomi Wolf and Dr. Peter R. Breggin about various matters concerning COVID jabs, including what they are really for, what they are doing to people and what future vaccines will look like based on the emerging mRNA (or modRNA, according to some) technological framework.

Dr. Wolf, an author and journalist, talked specifically about the post-injection breaking of people’s will and what it looks like in the current state of the world. Dr. Breggin expanded upon this by highlighting the disturbing parallels between the effects of mRNA on the human mind and lobotomization practices of old. Read more here.

COVID Vaccines Now Definitively Linked to Menstrual Disorders, Blood Cell Deficiencies, Tinnitus, Musculoskeletal Issues and Ear Diseases – Natural News, December 14, 2023 

Is there a single health problem that isn’t caused by the COVID-19 vaccines? After three years of mass experimentation with these mRNA injections, there seems to be no limit to the type of adverse events that are recorded in pharmacovigilance systems around the world. There is much research on COVID vaccines causing myocarditis — a form of heart inflammation — but the inflammation does not end there.

Now, South Korean researchers are finding a causal link between COVID-19 vaccines and a host of blood disorders, inner ear diseases and musculoskeletal issues. Read more here,
NEW DISCOVERIES

FDA Breakthrough Device using Optical Spectroscopy was Found to Significantly Increase Physicians’ Detection of Skin Cancer – BioSpace, December 13, 2023

This study, authored by medical leaders including Laura Korb Ferris, MD, and Todd Thames, MD, evaluated the impact of the DermaSensor device on PCPs’ skin cancer diagnosis and management. The study involved 57 U.S. board-certified PCPs who collectively completed over 5,000 assessments of skin lesions.

This recently published utility study follows a recently published preceding clinical study, which was conducted to determine the standalone performance of the device and was recently published by the American Academy of Dermatology2. The device, which employs elastic scattering spectroscopy (ESS) and machine learning, was found in this utility study to significantly improve PCPs’ referral of malignant lesions to dermatologists. This companion study was conducted to provide clinical evidence for European regulatory authorities as well as initial effectiveness evidence for the FDA. The device has been under review by the FDA since early 2023; it is not currently available for sale in the United States. Read more here.

World’s First Human Brain-Scale Neuromorphic Supercomputer is Coming – New Atlas, December 12, 2023

Australian researchers are putting together a supercomputer designed to emulate the world’s most efficient learning machine – a neuromorphic monster capable of the same estimated 228 trillion synaptic operations per second that human brains handle.

As the age of AI dawns upon us, it’s clear that this wild technological leap is one of the most significant in the planet’s history, and will very soon be deeply embedded in every part of our lives. But it all relies on absolutely gargantuan amounts of computing power. Indeed, on current trends, the AI servers NVIDIA sells alone will likely be consuming more energy annually than many small countries. In a world desperately trying to decarbonize, that kind of energy load is a massive drag. More here.

Coastal Virginia’s New Offshore Wind Farm Will Supply More Than 660 000 US Homes With Renewable Energy – Energy Global, December 14, 2023

The Coastal Virginia offshore wind farm, located between 27 – 42 miles (43 – 67 km) off the coast of Virginia Beach, will be able to produce renewable energy for more than 660 000 homes in the region, and avoid the emission of greenhouse gasses equivalent to removing 1 million vehicles from the road each year, once it becomes operational in 2026.

This new facility, operated by Dominion Energy, will have 176 turbines with an energy output of approximately 2.6 GW, divided into three areas. In each area, the turbines will be connected by inter-array cables to each of the three offshore substations, where the power produced will be transformed from 66 kV to 235 kV. From these stations, the energy will travel to shore via three 235 kV 3-core cables. More here.

‘The Hunger War Has Started’ – Eunomia, December 12, 2023

The UN is warning that half of the population of Gaza is starving, and they say that nine out of ten people there are unable to eat every day because of the lack of supplies. “The hunger war has started,” Nawras Abu Libdeh of Medical Aid for Palestinians told the AP last week. The World Food Program has said that Gaza is on the brink of famine, and unless there is a sudden halt to the war and an end to the siege millions of people are going to fall off that cliff.

Israel’s Gaza Onslaught is the Next Stage of the Dahiya Doctrine – Mondoweiss, December 1, 2023

Why has Israel overwhelmingly targeted Palestinian civilians in its attack on Gaza? Israeli leaders have told us repeatedly collective punishment is Israel’s official policy, the current attack has just taken it to the next level. 

It is the fifty-sixth day since the Hamas attack on October 7 that resulted in the deaths of about 1,200 Israelis. The ensuing Israeli onslaught has by now killed over 15,000 Palestinians, including over 6,000 children. A negotiated temporary ceasefire, with extensions, has seen the exchange of several hostages between Israel and Hamas, freeing the initially agreed 150 Palestinian prisoners in exchange for 50 Israeli captives, with a few extensions raising those figures to 180 Palestinians and 105 Israelis (and other nationalities). The Israeli bombings have now resumed, with Israel now urging residents in the south of the strip to evacuate (earlier, residents in the north were urged to evacuate south). More here.

Netanyahu Plan to “Thin Out” Gaza Population to “Bare Minimum” – Tikun Olam, December 1, 2023

Israel Hayom carries a story alleging that Bibi Netanyahu has tasked his closest political confidant, Ron Dermer, with devising a plant that would “thin out the population of Gaza to a bare minimum.” Israel claims it is not ethnic cleansing, but a humanitarian gesture.

Israeli security ministers and military command are now debating about the “day after” in Gaza.  There is no clear consensus among them.  The Biden administration has expressed clear views that there be no ethnic cleansing, nor  displacement of the population in northern Gaza in order to expand the buffer zone.  It also is urging a free flow of humanitarian aid. But Netanyahu is resistant due to the constraints of his far-right coalition partners, who hold him hostage on such issues.  It may try to deflect American demands with “we’ll try.”  Though this means nothing.

Israeli AI ‘Assassination Factory’ Plays Central Role in the Gaza War – Natural News, December 4, 2023

Tel Aviv has been relying on an AI Program dubbed the Gospel to select targets in Gaza at a rapid pace. In past operations in Gaza, the IDF ran out of targets to strike in the besieged enclave.

A statement on the IDF website says the Israeli military is using the Gospel to “produce targets at a fast pace.” It continues, “Through the rapid and automatic extraction of intelligence,” the Gospel produced targeting recommendations for its researchers “with the goal of a complete match between the recommendation of the machine and the identification carried out by a person.” More here.

Government Tyranny Comes to Main Street, With the Feds More Powerful Than Ever – New York Post, December 5, 2023

Americans today have the “freedom” to be fleeced, censored, wiretapped, injected, disarmed, detained, groped and maybe shot by government agents. Politicians are hell-bent on protecting citizens against everything except Uncle Sam.

“We live in a world in which everything has been criminalized,” warned Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. There are now more than 5,200 separate federal criminal offenses and tens of thousands of state and local crimes. Thanks to the Supreme Court, police can lock up anyone accused of “even a very minor criminal offense,” such as an unbuckled seatbelt. More here.

The White House’s Secret Surveillance Program Breaks All the Laws – OffG, December 4, 2023

The government wants us to believe that we have nothing to fear from its mass spying programs as long as we’ve done nothing wrong.

It doesn’t matter whether you obey every law. The government’s definition of a “bad” guy is extraordinarily broad, and it results in the warrantless surveillance of innocent, law-abiding Americans on a staggering scale. Read more here.

Fighting the Weaponization of the Internal Revenue Service The End of Abusive Unannounced Field Visits – House Judiciary Committee Republicans, December 12, 2023

The Committee on the Judiciary and its Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government are empowered by the House of Representatives to examine how the Executive Branch interacts with American citizens and to investigate civil liberties abuses. History has shown how the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), with its vast power to reach into the lives of Americans, has the tremendous potential to violate the civil liberties of American citizens.1 As Justice John Marshall noted over two-hundred years ago, the “power to tax involves the power to destroy.”2 The Committee’s and Select Subcommittee’s oversight demonstrates that Justice Marshall’s warning is as potent now as it was then.

Will the Corrupt US Department of Justice (sic) Be Held Accountable? – PaulCraigRoberts, December 12, 2023

It is a paradox that Jack Smith, who in my opinion has less integrity than the infamous Stalinist prosecutor Andrey Vyshinsky who prosecuted Stalin’s show trials of the Bolsheviks, was appointed director of the Justice (sic) Departments Office of Public Integrity.  Perhaps recognizing Smith’s lack of concern with justice, Merrick Garland, the worst Attorney General in US history, sicced Jack Smith on President Trump and Trump supporters who attended the Trump rally labeled an “insurrection” by the whore media and Democrat Party.

The way Smith got his convictions was to intentionally misapply law in order to coerce innocent people with a 20 year prison threat into a plea bargain.  In other words, by intentionally misusing law he forced people to convict themselves via self-incrimination, which is what a plea bargain is.

Rishi Sunak Considers Curbing Social Media Use for Under-16s – The Guardian, December 14, 2023

Rishi Sunak is considering limiting social media access for teenagers under the age of 16 to try to protect them from online harm, with reports suggesting a potential ban is on the cards.

The government is considering further action despite bringing in the Online Safety Act, which requires social media platforms to shield children from harmful content or face fines of up to 10% of a company’s global revenue. A consultation would be launched in the new year, Bloomberg first reported, to explore the risks that children were exposed to while using social media. More here,

Have Child Traffickers Taken Over the Etsy Online Marketplace? – Natural News, December 14, 2023

Following the Wayfair scandal from several years back, another questionable situation has emerged on the Etsy online marketplace platform where users are publishing suspicious listings that some say appear to suggest a pedophilia problem.

Numerous suspicious listings on Etsy are circulating the internet, including one with a “picture of a pizza” listed for sale at $9,000. Said listing reads “delivery instant download,” and in the associated picture, a mobile phone is seen strategically placed inside the pizza box. In case you did not know, the word “pizza” is a pedophile code, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Department of Justice (DOJ). Law enforcement documents and mainstream media articles, including a fairly recent one from The Wall Street Journal, also address the word “pizza” and what it means in pedophile circles. More here.

20-Somethings Who Speak Their Minds at Work are the New Normal and It’s Changing the Office Forever – Business Insider, December 14, 2023

Sam Ghelli, 23, was ready to quit her previous job when her manager made an impassioned plea. “He was like, ‘How much do I have to increase your salary to make you stay? I want you to stay here,'” Ghelli said. But Ghelli, true to the stereotype of a Gen Zer, stuck to her guns. She was determined to leave the job because the culture at the company was no longer working for her. And, ultimately, her Gen X manager did help her out — by helping her find new roles and hopping on the phone with her now-boss. That might not sound like a typical relationship with a boss you’re leaving. Ghelli, a 2022 college graduate, is one of the Gen Zers trying to reshape work.

The pandemic recession-battered generation has lived through a Great Rethink of work that started right as they received their first offer letters. An economy shaped by labor shortages and the Great Resignation briefly bent to workers’ desires for higher pay, more flexible hours, and people-first policies. For some new graduates, it’s the only economy they’ve known. More here.

GREEDFLATION: Study finds Corporate Profiteering Significantly Boosted Global Prices in 2022 – Natural News, December 12, 2023

The massive price increases seen in 2022 appear to be the handiwork of companies looking for more profits at the expense of their customers, according to a study.

The study by the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) and Common Wealth think tanks looked at 1,350 companies listed on stock exchanges in the U.K., U.S., Brazil and South Africa. It found that major companies in the food, mining, oil and gas, technology, telecommunications and banking sectors leveraged their market power to implement substantial price hikes. This, in turn, ensured that their companies made “super profits.” More here.

Pit Bull is Sworn in by Police as ‘Paw-trol Officer’ After He Showed Up One Day and Found Fur-ever Home – December 13, 2023

A pit bull named Bolo needed just one day with the officers at the Hopkinsville Police Department for them all to fall in love. Now sworn in as the first-ever “Paw-trol Officer” Bolo has found his fur-ever home.

Arriving at the station in Hopkinsville Kentucky as part of a publicity program for the nearby Christian County Animal Shelter, Bolo was only meant to stay for a day and contribute his handsome face to the Department’s social media posts as a means to help him find a home. 
“Oddly enough, everybody fell in love with him,” said Police Chief Jason Newby. “So when it came time for him to go back that day, they got him in his cage, and he kind of dropped his head and whimpered, and everybody’s heart melted, and we decided to adopt him.” More here.

Good health is dependent on the appropriate transfer of information within and between cells. The informational and molecular disharmonies associated with disease can be reversed using appropriate therapeutic signals that stimulate the return to the normal state without adverse effects. One such signal molecule, SLO, has demonstrated clinical utility in a broad spectrum of indications that would at first glance appear to be unrelated. The underlying common thread that links these disorders is representative of the targets to which resonant molecular signals are directed.

Regina Meredith

As Regina’s career progressed, so did her decades long exploration into the world of esoteric and hidden sciences – the reality beyond the 5 sense world. Guidance from these realms suggested it was time to bring her skill set to the world of video/televised media, so in late 2004, along with her husband Scott, she co-created ‘Conscious Media Network’, the first online network to feature full length original video interviews with authors and experts in the realms of the meta-physical, healing arts and alternative theories, opening up a world that many had experienced but never had access to on this scale.

Gaia: In 2012, Conscious Media Network merged with Gaiam TV in 2012, with Regina serving as anchor in their new media division on Open Minds and Healing Matrix. The demand for Regina’s unique perspective on a variety of subjects has drawn attention from conference organizers, moving her into the public as a presenter at conferences.

Dr. Harold Puthoff

Although nominated for a Nobel Prize in physics for his breakthrough theoretical work on zero-point energy, Dr. Harold Puthoff, is most recognized for having been a co-founder of the secret US government “remote viewing” program that successfully used psychics to spy on the Soviet Union and China.

Now a principal and science advisor in a leading-edge effort by former senior military and intelligence managers to disclose the many decades of interest that the US has had in UFOs, he comes to Berkeley Springs on the 8th of February to give a TransitionTalk about his work in making sense out of the UFO phenomena.

Dr. Puthoff’s presentation will include a summary of his current activities with To The Stars Academy, which is on the forefront of bringing into the open formerly highly classified efforts by the government to track, record and understand the meaning of hundreds of encounters that the military has had with UFOs over the past years.

This is an extraordinary opportunity to learn from and question one of the foremost thinkers and leaders of the rapidly accelerating global effort to both make the public aware of what was previously unacknowledged about UFO and alien interaction with humans and also to address the deep questions about what is happening and what it might mean for the future of humanity.

Joe McMoneagle

Joe was the longest operational psychic spy in the US government’s very highly classified Stargate program where they used psychics and intuitives to look into installations and people around the world that were of interest to government intelligence agencies. They called the process remote viewing.

As it turned out, the remote viewers discovered that they were – not limited by either time or space and produced drawings and assessments that could not have been obtained in any other way. The Soviets had an active remote viewing program at the same time and it is rumored that Russia, China and the U.S. still have initiatives of this kind that are operational.

Joe’s stories are fascinating, like the time he mentally got inside a Chinese nuclear weapon and saw how the triggering mechanism worked . . . and then went out and bought the parts at Radio Shack to show the scientists in the intelligence agency exactly how it was done. The remote viewers could find submarines at the bottom of the ocean and crashed aircraft in the middle of African jungles.

Dr. Joe Dispenza

Dr Joe Dispenza is an international lecturer, researcher, corporate consultant, author, and educator who has been invited to speak in more than 33 countries on six continents.

He’s also an invited chair of the research committee at Life University in Atlanta, Georgia.

As a researcher, Dr. Joe’s passion can be found at the intersection of the latest findings from the fields of neuroscience, epigenetics, and quantum physics to explore the science behind spontaneous remissions. He uses that knowledge to help people heal themselves of illnesses, chronic conditions, and even terminal diseases so they can enjoy a more fulfilled and happy life, as well as evolve their consciousness. At his advanced workshops around the world, he has partnered with other scientists to perform extensive research on the effects of meditation, including epigenetic testing, brain mapping with electroencephalograms (EEGs), and individual energy field testing with a gas discharge visualization (GDV) machine. His research also includes measuring both heart coherence with HeartMath monitors and the energy present in the workshop environment before, during, and after events with a GDV Sputnik sensor.

As a NY Times best-selling author, Dr. Joe has written Becoming Supernatural: How Common People Are Doing the Uncommon(Hay House, 2017), which draws on research conducted at his advanced workshops since 2012 to explore how common people are doing the uncommon to transform themselves and their lives; You Are the Placebo: Making Your Mind Matter (Hay House, 2014), which explores our ability to heal without drugs or surgery, but rather by thought alone; Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself: How to Lose Your Mind and Create a New One (Hay House, 2012) and Evolve Your Brain: The Science of Changing Your Mind (2007), both of which detail the neuroscience of change and epigenetics.

Dr. Todd Ovokaitys

After two years at Northwestern, he was accepted into an accelerated combined graduate/undergraduate program at Johns Hopkins University Medical School, which conferred both B.A. and M.D. degrees. Advanced training was at Georgetown University Hospital, with a Residency and Chief Residency in Internal Medicine followed by a Fellowship in Pulmonary and Intensive Care Medicine.

During his Pulmonary Fellowship, the specialty that concerns the lungs, Dr. Todd began his research with cells of the immune system. Many procedures were done on AIDS patients to diagnose their lung problems. Observing this dire disease firsthand and the toxic results of early medical treatments, Dr. Todd developed a passion for finding better solutions. Towards the end of his Fellowship, he became aware of the benefits of Holistic Medicine for improving the function of the immune system while building rather than impairing the function of other systems.

Inspired to learn more, he moved to Southern California to study with practitioners of Complementary Medicine. In the context of these studies, he had an experience so radical that the course of his life and work were forever transformed.

During a meditation class in the summer of 1989, Dr. Todd paired with another student for an exercise. The process was profound and they took turns, one in the process while the other scribed to record any breakthroughs of awareness. Much as in the Jodie Foster movie “Contact,” the usual anchor points dissolved with the feeling of instant transport to a different dimension of being. There was a doorway or portal to traverse, with a message of the responsibility taken on through the choice to go further.

Instantly upon walking through this doorway, a living form was seen that filled a room – and had the shape of a DNA strand enlarged millions of times. This form communicated that science only partly understood how DNA worked. The linear understanding of DNA as an enormous data string was correct but incomplete. In addition, DNA was a structure of coils within coils in an environment of moving charges that permitted DNA to send electromagnetic signals much as a radio transmitter. Further, DNA could receive and be conditioned by electromagnetic signals. Most significantly, if it were possible to determine and transmit the correct resonant signals, that it was possible to switch the activity of a sick cell to that of a healthy cell, an old cell to that of a young cell.

This experience brought with it a certainty that solutions were possible. After intensive review of the previous work showing the effects of electromagnetic energy patterns on cellular health and function, Dr. Todd located a colleague with the technical expertise to build the desired invention.

Sharry Edwards

Sharry Edwards has been accused of being too scientific by some, too esoteric by others. In actuality, she is a bridge between both fields of inquiry. Sharry is the acknowledged pioneer in the emerging field of Vocal Profiling using BioAcoustic Biology. For many years she has provided the leading-edge research to show the voice as a holographic representation of the body that can be used to change the face of medicine.

Sharry asks that we imagine a future in which we can be individually identified and maintained through the use of frequency based biomarkers that keep us healthy and emotionally balanced. Her work at the Institute of BioAcoustic Biology has shown that we can each have dominion over those frequencies by individual mind management or a simple remote control that is completely programmable. Using the unique techniques of Vocal Profiling and evaluation, emotional as well as physiological issues can be revealed and addressed.

Her work with the human voice reveals that people who share similar traumas, stresses, diseases, toxicities…share similar, if not identical, vocal anomalies. She brings together ancient knowledge with modern ideas of harmonics and frequency relationship theories to show that math can be used as a form of predictive, diagnostic and curative foundation for wellness. Through entrainment of the frequency grids of the brain, the body can be programmed to support its own optimal form and function.

Steve McDonald

Steve McDonald is an extraordinary Australian thinker and researcher who arguably knows as much about the structure of the global planetary transition that we are experiencing as anyone on the planet. He draws coherent pictures from the deep insights of Clair W. Graves and paints clear, explanatory images of not only how humanity has evolved to this point, but what is inevitably on our horizon . . . and how this epic transition will continue to play out.

Steve served with the Australian Army for 15 years, including war service as an infantry company commander in Somalia, 1993. He is also a qualified military helicopter pilot and on leaving the army he flew a rescue helicopter in the tropical Mackay-Whitsunday region of Queensland. Building upon his extensive experience in unpredictable environments, after retiring from flying Steve specialized as a change management consultant. He consequently studied the developmental psychology research of Dr Clare W Graves and became one of the first Australians qualified to teach Dr Graves’ theory under the banner of Spiral Dynamics Integral. A long-term struggle with posttraumatic stress has driven Steve’s deep interest in human nature and consciousness. He is a founder of Psychedelic Research in Science & Medicine, an Australian non-profit association. He is also a founder of AADII, a non-profit company created to support worldwide transformational change.

Robert Coxon

Although Robert Coxon had been studying and composing music for many years, it was after taking the Silva Mind Control course that he realized how powerful sound could be in relaxing the body and opening the consciousness. He then decided to write his first album.

Cristal Silence quickly became a major hit throughout Canada, staying on top of the charts for many years. This was the beginning of his continuing phenomenal success as composer and solo artist.
