1916: Never Again!

(A protest and a warning addressed to the peoples of Europe) by Edward Carpenter Never again must this Thing happen. The time has come — if the human race does not wish to destroy itself in its own madness — for men to make up their minds as to what they will do in the future; for now indeed is it true that we have come to the cross-roads, we stand at the Parting of the Ways. The rapid and enormous growth of scientific invention makes it obvious that Violence ten times more potent and sinister than that which we are witnessing today may very shortly be available for our use — or abuse — in War. On the other hand who can doubt that the rapid growth of interchange and understanding among the peoples of the world is daily making Warfare itself, and the barbarities inevitably connected with […] Read More

2014: Born from the Ashes and Blood or , How FDR, Churchill, and Stalin butchered Poland.

The Convergence of Co-linear Wave-reading Consciousness Units In trying to tell “OUR” story, the most difficult thing has been to decide where and how to begin. Yes, “they” would say that there is no time, therefore there really is no beginning, middle or end. Well, that is all fine and good if you are a purported “Sixth Density Light Being.” But, for the rest of us, we HAVE to start somewhere to tell a story. So, for this particular story, although it may not be clear to the reader WHY it is so until later, THIS is where it begins: At the annual party rally held in Nuremberg in 1935, the Nazis announced new laws which institutionalized many of the racial theories prevalent in Nazi ideology. The laws excluded German Jews from Reich citizenship and prohibited them from marrying or having sexual relations with persons of “German or related […] Read More

1892: Old Philosophers and Modern Critics

In one of the oldest philosophies and religious systems of prehistoric times, we read that at the end of a Mahâ-Pralaya (general dissolution) the great Soul, Param-Atmâ the Self-Existent, that which can be “apprehended only by the suprasensual,” becomes “manifest of itself.”1 The Hindûs give this “Existence” various names, one of which is Svayambhû, or Self-Existent. This Svayambhû emanates from itself the creative faculty, or Svâyambhuva – the “Son of the Self-Existent” – and the One becomes Two; this in its turn evolves a third principle with the potentiality of becoming Matter which the orthodox call Virâj, or the Universe.2 This incomprehensible Trinity became later anthropomorphized into the Trimûrti, known as Brahmâ, Vishnu, Shiva, the symbols of the creative, the preservative, and the destructive powers in Nature – and at the same time of the transforming or regenerating forces, or rather of the three aspects of the one Universal […] Read More

1879: War In Olympus

Dark clouds are gathering over the hitherto cold and serene horizon of exact science, which forebode a squall. Already two camps are forming among the votaries of scientific research. One wages war on the other, and hard words are occasionally exchanged. The apple of discord in this case is – Spiritualism. Fresh and illustrious victims are yearly decoyed away from the impregnable strongholds of materialistic negation, and ensnared into examining and testing the alleged spiritual phenomena. And we all know that when a true scientist examines them without prejudice . . . well, he generally ends like Professor Hare, Mr. William Crookes, F.R.S., the great Alfred Russell Wallace, another F.R.S., and so many other eminent men of science – he passes over to the enemy. We are really curious to know what will be the new theory advanced in the present crisis by the sceptics, and how they will […] Read More

2009: The Hound of Mons

A strange horror story from the battlefields of World War I, when a terrible devil-dog was said to haunt the allied trenches. By Theo Paijmans  January 2009 Accounts of anomalous occurrences, tall tales and yarns, superstitions and rumours – all are born in the confusion and upheaval of every great conflict, and World War I was no exception. French linguist Albert Dauzat treats several fascinating legends that emerged from military conflicts, and lists a number of tales from WWI in his Légendes, Prophéties et Superstitions de la Guerre. In his book, published two years after the war, Dauzat recounts how he experienced a number of these legends firsthand, such as the rumoured arrival of large contingents of Russian troops: “At Pont-Audemer, a friend told me, during the whole of the Winter of 1914–1915, people believed in the disembarking of the Russians who had come from Arkhangelsk to Honfleur (situated […] Read More
