Of Things That Go Bump in the Night...Continued...

This is an update of an ongoing saga...the anomalous events in our home.

The polished stones still move daily. New stones appear occasionally. Recently, a string of beads materialized from the aether. Books and CDs that we have never purchased or seen before sometimes appear. For some reason, Marie tends to attract mystery novels, such as by Mary Higgins Clark. These generally show up in her car, on one of the seats, while it is parked and locked.

Most of the activity seems to take place on our bed. Virtually every night, I must check for objects before climbing into bed. These will mostly consist of polished stones that I keep in a drawer in the bedside nightstand. They sometimes are scattered on top of the sheet or blankets, or else under the bottom sheet next to the mattress. My pillowcase generally gets stuffed with stones and dog chews. Our Shih Tzu Sophie has hinted that she is responsible for moving the latter, but understand that everything is placed in the far end of the pillowcase. A small dog attempting to do physically perform this trick would find it quite challenging. Sometimes I leave the room for a moment while she is on the bed and return to find the pillow stuffed, and she will be lying at the far end of the bed.

One change we have noted recently is that objects tend to move more often while we are present. On one recent occasion, the string of beads moved from a spot in front of me while standing near the bed, and materialized on top of Sophie, who was lying at the far end of the bed. I realized that if I had been looking down at the beads at that moment, I might have been able to catch the trick in the act.

Sometimes the stones drop gently onto me or beside me while lying in bed. The lights are off and my eyes closed, so I have no clue as to what propels them. At other times they materialize underneath where I'm lying, which can be quite uncomfortable.

The most recent anomaly has been the window blind moving vigorously just as I fall off to sleep. I open my eyes to see it swaying in a wavelike motion, as if a strong gust of wind had blown in. However, this happens when the night is calm or the window is completely closed. Other variations include knocking on the wall directly behind my head, or the sound of object shifting around on the nightstand or dresser. Sometimes Marie hears sounds that I don't, and sometimes only I hear them.

I have begun to theorize that some form of psychokinesis is involved here. The window blind movement and wall knocking only occur at the precise moment I or Marie begin to fall asleep - referred to as the hypnogogic state. While it can be common to hear or see strange things while passing through the hypnogogic state, having it actually affect physical objects in the vicinity. This is certainly new to me.

The moving objects seem to be attracted to spots where I've been sitting or sleeping, implying a connection to the human etheric field.

Once again, I'll mention that my reason for writing about these anomalies is to perhaps hear of others who have similar stories. It's not something generally brought up in casual conversation; imagine telling a colleague at work that I lost sleep due to stones moving and the window blind billowing. My guess is that most people don't have this problem!

Book Review: The Book of Aquarius by Anonymous

The Book of Aquarius purports to be a no-nonsense, plainly worded guide pertaining to all aspects of the legendary “Philosopher’s Stone”. The author claims to have pieced together the process for creating the Stone from readily available resources, primarily from sifting through the large body of available alchemical literature. Although he appears to speak as one in possession of secret knowledge, he states repeatedly that all salient details regarding the Stone can be referenced to published works of medieval alchemists. Despite the public nature of his sources, he claims this publication puts him at risk, hence the cloak of identity behind Anonymous.

Since ancient times, would-be Alchemists have toiled, with varying degrees of success, in their quest to recreate the magical stone. Many believe that the secrets of alchemy belong to an earlier age, and have long since perished except among a few adepts, who guard it closely. Fiction authors, such as Dan Brown, have woven elaborate plots depicting secret ancient knowledge in the popular Angels & Demons and The DaVinci Code. Holy Blood, Holy Grail, a non-fiction classic, tracks the history of the esoteric stream from the mists of the ancient past. Always, secrecy is the constant byword regarding this topic.

Anonymous presents a brief history of alchemy and comments on the ever-pervasive secrecy surrounding it. He concedes that the secrets of Alchemy were not appropriate for public circulation during the dark Iron Age of which we are just now exiting. However, he believes that now begins the time, long foretold by sages and prophets, when secrecy shall end and all hidden knowledge is to be revealed. This theme has cropped up from many sources of late, and indeed appears to have become the ruling meme of the day.

The author recounts the legendary uses for the Stone; The white Stone can heal any disease and transmute metals into silver. The red Stone can reverse aging and produce virtual immortality, increase mental powers, and transmute metals into gold. He assures the reader that this is all literally true, and not merely some form of metaphor.

The reader’s eyes may be excused for glossing over at yet another claim of lost esoteric knowledge being revealed. There are any number of modern-day mystery schools and secret societies that claim an esoteric pedigree of one sort or another. Some take credit for developing a complex system for decoding ancient texts, and therefore can now reveal the long-lost hidden knowledge. Everyone seems to have their own system for discerning the truth, but often these truths overlap or contradict one another.

The Book of Aquarius differs from the above by asserting that alchemical knowledge is plainly revealed in the writings of alchemists from the medieval through 19th century period. A glossary of certain key words is presented, which are used interchangeably for the Stone and its ingredients. The author then goes on to describe in detail the process by which the reader can create their very own Philosopher’s Stone, quoting extensively from the aforementioned texts along the way.

So what does one make of this? Is it the real deal? The author assures that it is, and dismisses common spiritual or allegorical interpretations of alchemical teaching. It’s all about the physical Stone, he asserts. He speaks so confidently of the powerful capabilities of the Stone that the reader is surprised to learn, later in the book, that Anonymous hasn’t actually yet succeeded in creating his own Stone. He claims to be well along in the process, but as of yet no cigar. His avid faith in his interpretation of alchemical texts sounds almost like religious fervor. If this were someone with insider knowledge, one would expect such confidence to be based more on substance and experience, rather than mere faith.

As one who tends to analyze any claim of “secrets revealed” with a degree of skepticism, I struggle as to where on the spectrum of truth to place this particular tome. I’m aware that powerful interests can employ a sophisticated disinformation technique that embeds certain critical falsehoods within otherwise plausible and truthful material. For example, some whistleblower documents on UFO and alien activity fall into this category. And coincidently or not, a chapter in the Book of Aquarius discusses a 1948 UFO crash in New Mexico in some detail, and another touches on the “New World Order”.

I suppose that ultimate proof could be obtained by following the author’s prescription for creating the Stone and let the results speak for themselves. However, the process appears to be tedious, and can take over a year or two to complete. Besides, the author speaks of a coming end-of-age “event” that could greatly reduce the population, and it’s not clear that the Stone would offer any protection from that. He admits that living indefinitely can be overrated, and presumes that most of the medieval sages gave up and checked out after a few hundred years of lonely isolation.

I’m still curious and not ruling anything out, but my money is still on a spiritual understanding of Alchemy.

Remembering the Day

It's great that so many feel the need to remember what happened 10 years ago. Unfortunately, the memory recalled by most is something akin to a "screen memory"; images and illusions projected by the Powers-That-Be (PTB). They were able to do that because they own the media outlets that provided most of the reporting.

Those that seek to uncover the "truth" of what happened are marginalized and villified as "conspiracy theorists". This is almost funny, because the official account of 9/11 events reads like an extreme, whacked example of conspiracy theory. To believe this account strains one's sense of credibility more than the alternatives that have floated about on the Internet.

In reality, this is serious, scary business. While it remains unclear as to who pulled off the operation, the government and media orchestrated the coverup. Someone in the halls of power must surely know more than they are telling, and perpetrating the Big Lie apears to fall squarely within their interests. In addition to the obvious interest of promoting warmongering against Iraq and Afghanistan, the 9/11 coverup could have been part of a bold experiment to see just how effective the propaganda machinery is in promulgating the Big Lie. Recently there appears to have been further experiments along this line, with official release of a crude forgery purported to be Obama's birth certificate, followed by the fabricated murder of the already dead "Bin Laden" in Pakistan. (Please note that I was not among the "Birthers" that previously questioned Obama's citizenship. I was only awed and shocked at the White House decision to release an obvious crude forgery of the birth certificate, and can only wonder why they did it.)

The results are in, and the mind control experts must be slapping each other on the back in exultation. The controlled media, of course, bought the entire package without question. While polls indicate that many citizens have their doubts about the official line, no one seems seriously concerned about it. A sampling of mainstream news commentary on this 10 year anniversery contains nauseating reference to Al Qaeda as being an "Evil Force" that took America by surprise 10 years ago. Of course, serious journalism would take to task the fact that no cogent effort was ever made by the US government to provide evidence linking Al Qaeda to the 9/11 attacks. No commentator asks why we attacked Iraq, which actually resulted in instability and created a haven for terrorists where there had been none under Saddam. A similar goal seems in store for Libya.

We sorely need to awaken from our slumber and think objectively once again. The term "Evil" is copyrighted and owned by the US Evil Empire Inc. (with subsidiary branches in several global locations). My definition of Evil includes killing 6 million in Iraq, 2-3 million in Afghanistan, and who knows how many in Libya. These are countries that never attacked us, and did not threaten our interests.

Not to minimize the sudden dispatch of 3000 souls in the WTC, but wouldn't justice for them be better served to investigate who the real perps were? This was a crime scene, but no forensics were carried out and the debris was quickly hauled away under secrecy. Bush said Al Qaeda did it so that seemed to settle the matter. The Bin Laden brand was trotted out to produce a variety of questionable video tapes taking responsibility; several appeared to feature different actors playing Bin Laden. Such a joke; The incredible sophistication and scale of the operation clearly precludes itinerent bands of bearded terrorists lurking in mountain caves.

The tragic legacy of 9/11 is that the putrid Big Lie has been allowed to hang over the land like a toxic smog. This false-flag operation worked well for the perpetrators, as did the subsequent coverup. What comes next?  Is there any limit to what they will try?

The only defense we have is to wake up and become aware.
