A little ignorance . . . . .

This is an example of ignorance that I chose because it is typical of the simple minded folks who really don't want to kow the truth. This is a dramatic oversimplification of complex matters.

Space suits such as the astronauts wore for the Apollo missions  would not protect you from the radiation in the Fukushima reactor because they were never designed to protect against that strength of Gamma radiation.  Note that the author does not seem to know the difference between Gamma rays and alpha and beta rays such as would be found in the Van Allen radiation belts - or that the Apollo missions only passed through the very thinnest part of the belts - ah, but that is all too complicated, right? 

The moon missions went through the belts very near the north pole. Note also that NASA has sent satellites through the VanAllen belts.

Lucky is the fool who did not put his name to this work.

The Land Beyond Part 3

Since my last post there has been a big blowback directed at Corey Goode and David Wilcock of “Cosmic Disclosure” on Gaia TV website for not providing any real supporting evidence for the claims made in their show.
I’m not going to get into that here, except to say that I have found more careful, evidence supported analysis from others – and thus for this episode, the few who get good scores from me.

First, Richard Dolan. Richard has a good analytical approach to the whole “UFO Scene” - he has a lot to say and it’s carefully though out. 
Plenty of Youtube vids to get you started, then
Richard is one person who has expressed skepticism about Corey Goode and his associates, and noted what appears to be a lot of connections to the “new age” ideology, none of which seems to me to have any supporting evidence either. I did try to watch a video where Corey apparently replied to the criticisms of his work but I just could not watch it – it was just too awful and slow for me.

Next. Joseph P. Farrell. Joseph is generous in his provision of information – he is a very competent researcher and has assembled impressive information on aspects of the UFO field that look very accurate and clear – particularly since he takes the sort of approach that I appreciate: both the social, historical and technical all meshing together to make a coherent picture.

Here is one example of Joseph on a radio show- there are a lot of vids of him on Youtube.

This is Joseph’s website:
Yes, I know the title sounds new-agey but check out his vids, you won’t be disappointed.

His books also appear on Adventures Unlimited Press website run by David Hatcher Childress, another author well known for his works in this field. To be honest, I am not sure what to think about David, I'll leave that up to you - but he does have a lot of books etc. for sale. 

Finally, the place where almost all of the UFO/Altsci people can be found, Project Camelot.

Note that the folk running Project Camelot are careful not to offer critique of anyone who may appear wit hwild tales, but rather they seek to document and record these people – so that you can judge for yourself, and there are a LOT of interviews on the Camelot site - so I really cannot give it a rating: each perosn interviewed must be judged individually.

The Land Beyond Part 2

Cosmic Disclosure: Corey Goode and David Wilcock : Good but . . . .
(on Gaia TV )
I am undecided about Corey: some parts of his story are very hard to accept such as what he calls the “Twenty and back” where young people serve in space for twenty years then are reverse aged and memory wiped so that they remember nothing of their time – and then return to the almost the same time they left to serve, thus nobody knows about it. Corey says he is an unusual one as his memory wipe didn’t work – or maybe something or someone gave it back to him. He doesn’t exactly say.
Never mind anything else, this is hard to accept. I understand that as a teen myself I wished that I could fly around in space and meet aliens and so on . . . . so it would be easy to imagine it all . . . . . and yet Corey comes across as genuine.If that means anything.

So I give him an “undecided” because I think that some of what he claims is true . . . . and wait to see if any more will be confirmed. Somehow.

The Secret Space Program story neatly combines several threads together: first it claims that all “spiritual technology” is denigrated here in the west because it really works and can be used to do all sorts of amazing things that can also be enhanced using technology. Of course, since it has military applications it must be denigrated and ridiculed in public, right?

Then there is the group of claims that there is an entire series of space colonies populated by humans out there: Mars, the moon, the Asteroid belt, all the way out to the Oort Cloud – there are said to be more than seven million humans on Mars alone.

There are also hundreds, thousands, millions of alien races – all of them basically humanoid in shape but otherwise varied in colour, shape and so on. It’s a big, busy galaxy and we are a stop on a cosmic “silk road”.

The whole of our science is basically faulty : the universe is primarily electromagnetic, there is no speed of light limit and space travel is commonplace.

Not only that, but there are portals or "wormholes" everywhere too: some are natural but there are plenty of artificial ones that can be used to travel instantly across space to other planets etc. etc.

His story matches diverse elements from history into a coherent whole – for example, supposedly some Germans before and during WW2 developed secret flying saucers but those responsible left Germany and Hitler’s people long before the end and moved to a base in Antarctica where the easily defeated Admiral Byrd and his forces during “Operation High Jump” - which is well reported, although the exact details are not clear.

Things like this make me think either he is good at assembling history into a neat whole, or he really does have some serious inside information.

For me at the moment, the big question is whether “spiritual technology” is real or not.
I can take it a step further though: even if there is a “spiritual realm” or “higher dimensions” that we can connect with, if I can’t sense or connect with these in some way it is meaningless to me.
This is not about logic or science, it’s simply experience.

Yes, I have had dreams where I floated around and seemed to be looking at the outside world – but there was no information gained that could be confirmed later in the waking world – so it might as well have been all just a dream, and that is the cruncher: whatever other worlds may exist in dreaming or some other state, if it does not connect with or somehow have meaning in the real world, it is no more than “brain farts” as some people call dreaming.

I admit , I would like to believe in what Corey is saying, but I have no supporting evidence about any of it apart from a few indirect real historical events – or other YouTube vids which have the same credibility problems as Corey’s own claims. Yes, there are a group of YT channels or presenters that seem to be all singing from the same songsheet – There is “The Event”, Corey and others I can’t recall at the moment - all provide mutual supporting evidence and promise The Event is coming soon when all the bad boys will get their just deserts – and of course I would be happy to see some of the horrors of our world ended and the perpetrators on trial, along with the secrets brought out into the open so we can save our planet and ourselves . . . . . but it does seem to be all very optimistic too, and totally unlike any time in the past. I would welcome an end to the ignorance of this current age, but hope will not be enough to bring that about.

Corey makes amazing claims but has no supporting evidence apart from a few other people who have appeared on his show – and they don’t seem to have any material evidence either.
For me, his credibility is not helped by working with David Wilcock who I have decided is totally outside my reality: he is something like a religious preacher - he makes grandiose claims but just like Corey has no, I repeat NO solid supporting evidence – and when people make claims such as he recently did about some sort of apocalypse that only “the pure at heart” will survive I must call it bullshit – because there is no historical precedent. It is true that things happen that don’t have any historical precedent, of course, but I will wait and see. 

It seems that I am a very un-spiritual person, not having any memories of past lives or recall of out-of-body journeys etc. etc. and despite my time as a church member Jesus never saved me, and I don’t think any of that will change in a hurry. Maybe I’m just a young soul who is only on my third or fourth life. :) 
 I just don’t accept anything blindly and to me “faith” is a con. Faith gets people all expecting things so that they might even delude themselves into making things appear in their own imaginations: it’s a sort of self hypnosis.
I don’t do faith. Give me something real, or admit it’s fiction.

I bought David’s book, “The Ascencion Mysteries” but I can’t read it, but that is much better than “The Law Of One’ which he draws a lot of his ideas from in the book. It is available free on the net: but it is really unreadable. I stopped reading it when it got to a part where it said something like “The Pyramids build themselves”. It’s worse than legalese too – the way it is written is quite, well, alien.

So why do I still watch Corey and David? Because it is an entertaining story. It expresses what I concluded myself as a child – that we are just a little ball of dirt at the edge of a big galaxy and it is full of life and living beings travelling, trading and doing whatever else they do . . . . we are just a handful of primitives down here who are just not getting out there yet, for some reason. The very idea of a dead, empty galaxy has always been silly to me: as I wrote ina previous post, why do our scientists assume they have discovered everything and that there is nothing out there because their instruments can't pick up anything? It's foolish. As silly as the speed of light being a limit.

I guess I’m still hoping that somehow something will turn up that provides some better evidence supporting his claims. There are oddments that might indirectly support some of the claims but nothing concrete . . . . and none of it really relates to us real folks living down here on Earth, which is the bottom line of it all: how does this story relate to me? Nothing in the story has direct meaning for my life: no UFOs ever dropped in on me or put on a show even when I tried with the help of others (but that’s another story) - but if you want an intriguing story that reads like grand sci-fi, check out the show - and if you do find something that does support the SSP story, let me know, huh?

One step beyond

Okay, did you look at the previous post?
You want to know how to make a really amazing experiment? Take that device and go one step further.  You can see that two forces at right angles to each other create a third, so how about putting a third force in there: won't that produce a force at right angles to all three?

It should not be too hard to imagine taking the ring of mercury and putting it on a shaft with an electric motor on the other end so the whole ring spins, and you would need to put the electric current in with either nonmagnetic rollers rolling on the metal rings or just a copper leaf that rubs on it if you want to go simpler  - but there it is, a third force is now operated at right angles to the other two.

Of course, you don't really want the mercury to fly out so you will need to cover it over too - actually I think it doesn't even need to be mercury - anything that conducts should work (I'm guessing here) but you can spin that ring fast, put two ring magnets directly above and below it instead of the low power design shown  in the vid which is done to make sure you see the mercury moving - heck, up the current as well if you want - but I'm guessing the result will be some sort of 4D force and that would be mind blowing to say the least.

I dare you to try it - but please let me know the results too. I don't have the money or equipment to even copy the experiment shown.  Call it whever you like, just let me know if it works or not.

Moving mercury and The Lorentz Force

Supposedly according to "ancient Indian texts", "Vimanas" operated by having mercury in an iron container which produced lifting force when heated. This is not supported by experiment ( as far as I know) or it would surely have been rediscovered long ago.  Apply enough heat to mercury in a sealed container and it will explode, making a very big  poisonous mess. Either those "ancient texts" are not telling anything like the whole story or they are just plain lies.

What this video DOES show is what is known scientifically as the Lorentz Force: the mercury in the ring is penetrated by a magnetic field going through it vertically while the electric field goes through it horizontally, these two creating the third force which moves the mercury at right angles to the other two - around the ring.  This will not create any "lift force" but it does show that the Lorentz force is real and does work on a conductive fluid.

Can the Lorentz Force be used to generate thrust? Note that it only operates on a conductive fluid - so you won't be moving air or water with it any time soon unless you change the medium's properties first. Then consider the power used: only two volts but a LOT of current - better have some serious power supplies on hand to do it. Finally, there is no "antigravity" effect or force involved - sorry folks, no secret flying saucer power here - just real science.

In theory, one might ionise air around your "saucer" to make it more conductive but even so the electrical resistance of the air will dramatically increase the amount of power needed to cause movement and the magnetic field is going to need to be huge too: so you will need a tremendous amount of electric power to cause this effect and after all of this, there is no "antigravity" or artificial gravity involved: that generator and the rest of your equipment is still going to weight a lot and won't make a saucer that can do much apart from maybe (if you have enough power/weight ratio) get you off the ground.  No supersonic performance, no instant cornering at 2000 Kph.  Nope.

Score one for science and zero for fiction.

Thanks to Electrical Experiments Roobert33 for the video.

The Land Beyond Part 1

If there is one thing the net is good for, it is weird, strange and “alternative” ideas about life, history and science. I don’t claim to be an expert of any kind and I welcome anyone who reads this (yeah, right, as if anyone reads this!) - if you can offer different views or better information to email me and I will happily look at it and amend my reports if it makes sense to me. 

Estimations of Credibility
These are my own estimations of the credibility of various people in the "Alternative" media - even the liars are at least entertaining. Wether any of them are genuine or not is at times impossible to determine because of the clouds of fake information and outright bulls***t about.
Zechariah Sitchin: FAKE.
I tried to sit through one video of him talking about his ideas and almost fell asleep - but that does not affect the accuracy or otherwise of what he says.

Nobody has found any translations of the Sumerian tablets that support all of his claims. Anyone prepared to take me up on this and show me where some Sumerian tapped into his clay tablet something that supports Sitchin’s claims? For him to make all these claims but never support them is just plain quackery. Did he ever write his "corrected" guide to Sumerian that proves his story? No. 

To be honest there are elements of the story in actual approved translations of Sumerian: but that does not mean the rest of his story is automatically true.

Putting it simply, according to him we are the slave race created by the "Annanuki" to mine gold for them to somehow protect their planet "Nibiru" which occupies an extreme orbit that takes it out past Pluto at one end of it's orbit and in near Earth in the other. 

The idea of a wandering planet having humanoids living on it is dubious: if “Nibiru” really had an orbit such as he claimed, the surface would be as cold as Pluto for most of it’s orbit, and the problems only get worse from there: no amount of gold in a planet’s atmosphere would keep it safe in an extreme elliptical orbit as described in his work. Gold might be useful for electrical equipment or even for shielding from radiation in a solid layer ( as sometimes used in modern spacecraft), but even then there are too many gaping holes in Sitchin’s stories for me to accept them as true. 

Part 2 will follow soon.
