There’s a relatively new kind of farm, it’s a modern-day farm, incorporating many of the lessons learned over the past few centuries. This is a “human” farm, a new kind of highly profitable “democratic” tax farm, where human beings are controlled, manipulated and made to police each other; but all the while, they think they are free, in control and can “vote”, which causes them to tolerate it.
What the tax livestock don’t realize, however, is the mere existence of a system of voting, does not necessarily mean members of the society will actually be free. They don’t realize that virtually every mechanism for supposed change, in their society, is unable to actually effect change. Most of these great implements of democracy: voting, protest, political office, violence, etc, are completely unable to change society.
There’s nothing wrong with questioning events and proposing alternate theories; yet you wouldn’t know this, from the way many who do this are treated. An intelligent, logical, critical-thinking person can see that, many things which happened on 9/11, were highly abnormal and inconsistent with the explanations we were given, by those in the government and media.
How is it that many supposedly educated, critical-thinking individuals, have been so well trained to protect government claims and government propaganda, instead of thinking for themselves and arriving at their own conclusions? Why do we allow these government propagandists, or people who have been duped by this propaganda, to keep us from having a substantial public inquiry?
It has now been nearly 10 years since 9/11 and while a substantial portion of the population now questions the official stories; it is still considered taboo, under most circumstances, to pose questions which indicate a non-belief in the official version of events.
Discussing these theories has lead to many firings and quite often ostracism from friends, co-workers and family; but these questions are perfectly logical questions. Why do people resort to such immature measures in response to simply questioning an event? Why not just answer the questions and come to the conclusions reached using logic?
Is there, perhaps, a fear of using logic to question these events? Might the conclusions reached possibly put people in a position of conflict with long-held views? (more…)
I’ve been a big documentary watcher for the past several years; but it has been a awhile since I compiled together most of the documentaries, which have made an impression on me over the years. That’s just what I did today!
I’ve embedded a semantically organized repository of documentaries and discussions, containing independent, non-conventional perspectives on a wide array of topics; generally focused on alternative historical perspectives.
The documentaries are organized semantically into Pearl Trees; to make them easy to maintain, navigate and organize. This repository will be maintained and added to on a regular basis, to ensure that there is always fresh, working content and the latest indie documentaries which become available online.
Gray water is the kind of water which comes out of your shower, sink or washer. It is one of the untapped resources in the conventional home design. Usually this water is wasted, by being sent into the sewage drain; however, this water can be reused for a variety of purposes in which non-potable water is useful.
Typically there are two uses for gray water: irrigating lawns/gardens and flushing toilets. Since most individuals are already doing these things; gray water can replace the need to treat water and sewage, creating a tremendous long-term environmental and economic benefit.
Gray water systems can be installed by individuals without specialized knowledge. The price of systems starts as low as $200 for a very basic system which reuses water from the washing machine for lawn/garden irrigation. Higher end systems filter and/or treat the water for reuse in toilets and other applications which require cleaner water.
How to Implement a Greywater System for Your Garden
Google Tech Talk
May 12, 2010
Presented by Laura Allen and Gregory Bullock.
Laura Allen and Gregory Bullock describe how Greywater can green an increasingly parched California, and what Googlers can do to help. Are there such things as waste, or just resources that are currently misplaced? Greywater (water that comes from sinks, showers, and washing machines) turns wasterwater and its nutrients into irrigation water, saving time, money, and fresh drinking water. Whats more plants love it, especially fruit trees, berries and vines. Last year California rewrote its greywater code, making simple greywater reuse legal and affordable. Learn the why and hows of greywater reuse, and how to transform your household plumbing into a greywater irrigation system.
Laura is a founding member of Greywater Action and has spent a decade exploring low-tech, urban sustainable water solutions. She has a BA in Environmental Science, a teaching credential and a masters in education from New College of CA. She is a co-editor of the anthology Dam Nation: Dispatches from the Water Underground. Laura leads classes and workshops on urban ecological sanitation technologies of rainwater harvesting, greywater reuse and composting toilets. Laura also works with the Greywater Alliance to help remove institutional barriers to sustainable water use.
Greg is the founder of Bang for your Green Buck, an environmental enterprise that designs sustainable, productive landscapes that grow food through greywater irrigation and rain harvesting. Having built a successful career as a management consultant principally focused on increasing talent, performance and organizational development within Fortune 500 companies, he decided to leverage these nurturing skills to focus on converting wasteful lawns into orchards and positively addressing the water crisis of California. Greg is a graduate of the first Greywater Installers Certification Course, and is also a sustainable landscaper. He also holds a Masters Degree in Business Strategy and Marketing.
One of the most widely neglected fields of knowledge is that of the Vedas. Although the vedas form the basis for our modern-day understanding of mathematics and geometry, they are not given credit by the academics.
Much can be learned from the Vedas. The video “Scientific Verification of the Vedic Knowledge” is just the beginning.
A vast number of statements and materials presented in the ancient Vedic literatures can be shown to agree with modern scientific findings and they also reveal a highly developed scientific content in these literatures.
The great cultural wealth of this knowledge is highly relevant in the modern world. Techniques used to show this agreement include: Marine Archaeology of underwater sites (such as Dvaraka), Satellite imagery of the Indus-Sarasvata River system, Carbon and Thermoluminiscence Dating of archaeological artifacts, Scientific Verification of Scriptural statements, Linguistic analysis of scripts found on archaeological artifacts, A Study of cultural continuity in all these categories
The search for the location of or information regarding Atlantis has occupied great minds for thousands of years. Psychics such as Edgar Cayce and Helena Blavetsky spoke of Atlantis in their readings. Adolf Hitler searched for the descendants of the white race of spiritual masters said to have descended from the Atlantean priesthood.
The following 5 part documentary is a fascinating look at some of the theories of the lost continent of Atlantis. All of the documentaries are available on google video. (more…)
This video is an in-depth discussion between the Honorable George V. Hansen, 7-term Congressman from Idaho and radio and TV talk show host Anthony J. Hilder.
In their discussion they detail how the Communist Chinese government gained great influence over the United States of America in recent years. It has much to do with the turning over of the Panama Canal to the Communist Chinese.
The Panamanian government, who had previously taken large loans from the international bankers, was being pressured to repay. When the Panama Canal was turned over to the Panamanian government, they essentially sold it to COSCO. (more…)
