‘Humankind has long dreamed of immortality. Surely, somewhere, Ponce de Leon’s Fountain of Youth awaits, allowing us to escape our inevitable fate of non-existence. Not surprisingly, some very wealthy tech executives are determined to buy their way out of that inevitability. These guys are living the high life and they don’t want it to stop.
Peter Thiel, the founder of PayPal, is worth somewhere north of $2 billion, and a member in good standing of the one-percent club that is projected to control half the planet’s wealth by next year. While economic inequality does not appear to weigh on him, other forms do. “Probably the most extreme form of inequality is between people who are alive and people who are dead,” he told the New Yorker recently. His thoughts on death? “Basically, I’m against it,” he told the Telegraph newspaper.’
‘It’s with sad regret we inform you all that John Harris has passed away … please respect the wishes for privacy of the family at this difficult time. If you feel the need to get in touch email [email protected]’
‘Former Liberal Democrat party leader Charles Kennedy has died suddenly at his home aged only 55, his family disclosed on Tuesday.
The Scottish former MP was found in his Highland home in Fort William and police are not treating it as suspicious. The cause of death has yet to be confirmed, with a post-mortem due to take place, but it is thought to be natural causes.
Mr Kennedy, who led his party from 1999 to 2006, lost his seat in the Ross, Skye and Lochaber constituency in last month’s general election. Friends said he was heartbroken at the defeat.’
‘The spirit world, also known as the mirror world, is the authentic underlying truth of humanity’s collective evolution. It contains humanity’s truest feelings, ideas, beliefs, and sacred consciousness. The subconscious of humanity was placed inside of beings who are dreamers, people who are capable of holding space and making life sacred again. These are the mamas and the papas, the sacred indigo children, the seers, the navigators, the creators, and the lovers of life. These are the dancers of space and time that shake rattles in their eyes and bring you back to life when they crack a smile.
Each and every human being, every plant, animal, or element of creation has a mirror world/spirit world identity. We exist as multidimensional beings with interior and exterior landscapes. We are capable of manifesting the sacred dream, of transforming nightmares into journeys through bliss gardens, and of healing ourselves above and below, within and throughout our eternal beings. Contained within the authentic mirror world are the spiritual imprints and collective light and dark of every individual human being. These gather together to create actual dimensions that encapsulate emotions, feelings, thoughts, imagery, and events.’
‘The United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has fined Halliburton seven whole thousand dollars for the safety violations that lead to the death of one worker at one of their fracking sites in Weld County, Colorado.
According to a U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration document, a 2-inch metal pipe fitting blew off a valve and hit an employee in the head, killing him.’
‘As world leaders work feverishly to bring about World War III, the need for front line cannon fodder will only increase, and more of the world’s youth will called to duty by the traitors and cowards who make peace an impossibility.
The propaganda machine and mainstream media is very sophisticated at selling war, and military recruiters have unfettered access to the mind’s of the young. They want YOU to be their next disposable hero.
The effort to make joining the military seem attractive will intensify as the economy worsens and college tuition rises, so it’s important to remember that no matter what they offer in exchange, it is your life and conscience that are truly at stake, and these are both priceless and irreplaceable.’
‘Everything you know about Osama bin Laden’s killing is wrong.
That’s the short version of a very long Seymour Hersh story, just published in the London Review of Books, which offers an alternative narrative of the killing of Bin Laden in 2011.
The slightly longer version is that two key Pakistani officials, General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, chief of the army staff, and General Ahmed Shuja Pasha, director general of the Pakistan’s intelligence service, were in on the operation to kill Bin Laden and ensured U.S. helicopters could travel safely across the border from Afghanistan into airspace over key Pakistani security facilities. They did so, Hersh’s story goes, in exchange for both personal bribes and a resumption of US military funding to Pakistan. That part is all too easy to believe.’
‘Mai Giang Vu was exposed to Agent Orange while serving in the Army of South Vietnam from 1968 to 1974. He carried barrels of chemicals to spray in the jungle. His sons were born in 1974 and 1975. They were unable to walk or function normally. Their limbs gradually “curled up” and they could only crawl. By age 18, they were bedridden. One died at age 23; the other at age 25.
Nga Tran is a French Vietnamese woman who worked in Vietnam as a war correspondent. She was there when the US military began spraying chemical defoliants. A big cloud of the agent enveloped her. Shortly after her daughter was born, the child’s skin began shedding. She could not bear to have physical contact with anyone. The child never grew. She remained 6.6 pounds – her birth weight – until her death at the age of 17 months.
Tran’s second daughter suffers from alpha thalassemia, a genetic blood disorder rarely seen in Asia. Tran saw a woman who gave birth to a “ball” with no human form. Many children are born without brains; others make inhuman sounds, Tran said. There are victims who have never stood up. They creep and barely lift their heads.’
