WITNESSING TREE SPIRITS  IN ORDINARY REALITY   

Our property on the Bay of Quinte is home to several species of native trees. In one area we call the glen, we’ve been witnessing an ongoing onslaught by invasive insects. Over a period of three to four years we watched helplessly as the ash trees slowly lost their battles to the Ash Borer Beetle. It bores pencil holes into the bark, then tunnels under it, robbing the trees of vital sap. Simultaneous attacks by tent caterpillars forced the trees to leaf out twice in the same season depleting their reserves.

The first tree to come down was a 60 foot specimen that was still mostly alive when we felled it. It came down with a heavy thud that shook the little glen, and sent my son and me running for cover.  We bucked the branches and left the trunk for another day.

Three nights later I awoke around 4:30 AM for a bathroom visit, and became wide awake afterwards. Since it was a mild October night, I put on my bathrobe and slippers in the dark, and decided to walk down to the glen to make a rare, early morning meditation.

As I descended into the glen I hit something. I had forgotten about the felled tree laying in the middle of the very dark glen. Even though my eyes were dark adapted, I did not see the branches lying on the ground until I walked into them. As I peered into the darkness before me, my eyes took in a faint ribbon of light stretching away from me for many feet into the night’s darkness. I had to take a few steps back to catch my breath and regain my balance.

Puzzled, I walked back up to the rim of the glen from where I could see that there were no patches of low-lying fog forming anywhere down in the glen. The night sky above was clear and starlit, and I could not see any sky shine from other ground sources. I gave the long sliver of glowing light a wide berth so as not to disturb it, as I walked around to approach it from another angle to see if I could discover its source and extent.  This time as I got closer, I could make out a soft grey-blue  glow hovering over the full length of the carcass of the tree. As my mind took in the significance of the scene my head dropped intuitively out of respect for what I knew in my heart was a lifeforce leaving the dying tree. I said some words of regret, and my body started to shake with excitement or cold, as I sat in quiet wonder.   

The glow disappeared as the morning light entered the glen. I rushed to the house to investigate the strange light on-line.  My cursory research suggested that the grey-blue glow fit the pattern for bioluminescence from decaying organic matter. The common name is Foxfire or Will ‘o the Wisp, and it was documented long ago. The usual sources are decaying matter and fungi, and the glow is so faint that it can only be observed if your eyes have been dark adapted. Apparently, the light is produced by a pair of special enzymes present in decaying matter which react with each other to release biophotons of soft light. After discussing the tree’s eerie glow with an experienced woodsmen and chemist, I chose the simple explanation that the light I had observed that morning came from rotting sawdust created under the ash bark by destructive beetle activity.

A few days later I started to dissect the trunk for firewood, and I noticed how thick the bark was, and how little actual sawdust had been produced by the beetle invaders. The amount of sawdust under the bark was trivial, and it just didn’t seem possible that so little organic matter could produce all the light that I had observed. In addition, the bark was so thick that it would surely absorb all the light photons completely. More compelling, was the sudden realization that the rest of the ash trees that were still standing were equally infected, but they did not give off any visible light emissions on that night. As the realization sank in; that the eerie glow over the dying ash tree was most likely its life force or spirit leaving the dying carcass, it sent a chill up my spine.

I consulted some of the top forestry research and management experts in Canada, who ruled out an explosion of the Armillaria fungus, that glows in the dark forest, and can spread over large areas of forest floor and acts as a communication system for trees. It became clear that the unusual glow could not be explained satisfactorily by natural processes. I reviewed my personal impressions as I witnessed the event, keeping in mind that my human presence in the glen could have perturbed the natural electromagnetic field energies present on that morning. The physical evidence I observed that morning informed me (mentally and spiritually) that spirits live  in trees. Why is there no documentation of this anywhere? Can only autistic eyes discern spirits and things that glow in the night? Now I see trees differently. Wherever there are trees, there is abundant life. They’re like living fasteners that connect the sky with the earth. Because they live in both worlds, they act as a conduit of communication between them.  

FMRI studies reveal that consciousness is still measurably present after the brain/body has died, telling us that consciousness is not the result of biological processes. Science supports the theory that trees have intelligence, because trees have been observed to mount organized defences against a deadly threat like invading insects. Planning and strategizing require creative thought.

When the rest of the ash group is felled this spring, they will hopefully provide more opportunities to study this undocumented phenomenon, perhaps with a night vision camera.

Shamanic and other spiritual cultures around the world honour and use sacred trees as: portals or gateways to hidden worlds, sources of wisdom, and even wish fulfillment. To name just a few, the Mohawks of North America honour the cedar as the sacred tree of life. The Caribe natives honour the ceiba tree, and West African’s have spiritual relationships with the iroko tree.

The visible light emissions coming from the ash tree trunk 3 days after it was cut down, proved to me with high confidence that trees have a spiritual nature that gives them life, and it can be observed and possibly documented under the right conditions.

EXPOSING WASHINGTON'S DEADLY FACE MASK SCANDAL THAT PRODUCED 1O TIMES THE NUMBER OF INFECTIONS WITNESSED IN CHINA, WHERE EVERYONE WORE MASKS FROM THE VERY START. 

Today, the infection numbers in the USA facilitated by social distancing alone have exceeded 600,000 cases, with 25,000 deaths. That's about 10 times the levels witnessed in China which saw 59,000 cases and 3,300 deaths resulting from face masks for everyone, supported by social distancing.

The numbers are compelling evidence that the US CDC has compromised public safety to conceal bad governance by the Trump administration.

In the USA, the Center for Disease Control is a government agency that provides guidance in health matters. Like all government agencies, the CDC is legally bound to support government policies, both good and bad.

When governments fail to act responsibly and provide for the protection of their citizens,
they use their agencies to provide political cover. When there’s an airborne threat like the deadly Covid-19 virus on the loose in a community, everyone needs respiratory not just health workers.

However, the CDC adjusted to the government shortage of face masks for all Americans, by downgrading a full protective response, to a minimal response with social distancing, a weak measure that only works outdoors under ideal conditions. Instead of protecting the public, the CDC has been protecting the errant government it serves, and it has knowingly put its own citizens in harm’s way with ineffective orders.

The CDC's irresponsible handling of the covid-19 pandemic has resulted not only in explosions of infections in the USA, but in every nation including Canada, that blindly followed the CDC toxic advice without challenging its validity .


Governments’ Emergency Response Programs are generally at the bottom of their priority list,
and emergency supplies are not usually maintained at a realistic level. When governments fail to
stockpile sufficient emergency supplies to protect their entire population, they downgrade their
response and recommendations to cover up their failures before the public. The same criminal process unfolded in Canada because Health Canada followed the CDC criminal lead, by adopting the worst practices instead of the best practices. 

When only infected persons are given masks and ordered to wear them, it gives the false impression that all sources of infection have been contained with masks. This is dangerously misleading because we know that only a small percentage of those infected, are tested, while the majority of infected persons will go on blithely to infect the unprotected public with their virally contaminated breath, especially inside buildings where pockets of contaminated air linger for up to 3 hours as active microbes.

This dangerous reverse logic coming from incompetent government agencies is the reason we are seeing explosions of infections in New York and Quebec. Their infection numbers are evidence that masking infected persons, while discouraging the rest from wearing them, is a formula for disaster.

WARNING, NEVER FOLLOW GOVERNMENT RECOMMENDATIONS REGARDING THE WEARING OF FACE MASKS INSIDE CONTAMINATED BUILDINGS. ALWAYS PROTECT YOURSELF WITH SOME FORM OF RESPIRATORY PROTECTION.

CDC's Epiphany - I don't know how long it's been posted, but today, I finally saw the CDC quietly admit its errors, by copying the China formula and publicly recommending alternative respirator protection in the form of cloth face masks for the rest of the suffering population, which can be easily made at home.

The experts are emerging, and I foresee charges of criminal mismanagement and fraud against Washington and Ottawa, in the near future.

A SHORT SIDEBAR ON THE SELF-HARMING MECHANISM FOUND IN NATURE

Self-harming appears to be ubiquitous in humanity, as we see it everywhere in varying degrees. It appears in every individual, in every society. Is it a natural process found everywhere in nature, or just in humans?  

We see evidence of self-harming in the animal world when living conditions, or the creatures own health drives it to self harm. An animal in chronic pain for example, will often express it, or take it out on a part of itself like an appendage or tail, that it perceives as not belonging to its core self.

We also see what appears to be self harming in the botanical world, but not as often or as easily perhaps, but there is evidence of this strange behaviour everywhere. Is it a design flaw, or a reaction to environmental challenges and adverse living conditions?

This lovely sugar maple has developed a "girdling root', that is slowly choking its owner, and it will probably die by its own root. This is not an uncommon growth pattern, as we have observed it in other species across the landscape.Some arborists explain it as nothing more evil than root crowding. When the tree is young, soil conditions could force its roots to wander in search of better soils, and sometimes a root will wander and continue to grow in the wrong direction, until it interferes with its own growth. No interfering forces here.

   

Is this what happens to us during our journeys through the world? As we travel down life's diverse paths, we take side trips that can change us with every new experience, sometimes so radically that we cannot recognize ourselves later when we try to establish our identity. 

After WWII we lived in Belgium, where my dad worked in the coal mines. We would say goodbye to him in the mornings as he left with his lunch pail, but when he came from the mines and stood in the doorway of little flat at the end of the day, none of us could recognize him. He was black from head to foot, and when he smiled he looked sinister and evil. What did you do to our dad?

HOW DID I BECOME THE VOICE OF SIX THOUSAND INDIGENOUS CHILDREN MARTYRED IN CANADA?

While attending a Catholic High School in the 60s, a priest-teacher slugged me in the back of head one day, when my Tourette’s got out of control.  He concussed me, and the damage sent me into a downspiral that ended badly in hospital. Christian violence almost destroyed my life, and had it not been for a loving sister, and my enduring connection to my deep inner truths, I would have perished and ended up a spiritual slave in Christian La La Land.

There have been many other victims of Christian violence revealed in Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Report. The TRR came at the end of hundreds of court cases, and class action law suits, in which the government’s criminal mistreatment of indigenous children was finally exposed and documented, despite continued government resistance.  

The TRR revealed the spiritual rape of hundreds of thousands of indigenous children taken from their homes and communities by violence and threats of violence. They were thrown into remote residential school prisons, away from all eyes even the law, where Christian teacher-guards abused them every day with: physical, emotional, and spiritual terror, in order to convert and control them, and more importantly their land wealth.

Unspeakable Nightmares in Christian Hell

Indigenous children were denied the same human rights afforded Christian colonial children, and were officially labeled as "savages” in Parliament.  More than 150,000 innocent native children “taken” from hundreds of sovereign first nations, were officially stripped of their native identities, and systematically, criminally mistreated by the Canadian government and its Christian partners in crime.  Christians forced their defenceless legal charges to accept an enemy deity named Jesus into their hearts, or face daily: starvation, humiliation, beatings, solitary confinement, hard labour, and social isolation.  This was racial hatred of the worst kind directed at minority children, nothing close to love or caring.

In Jesus’ name, innocent children who knew nothing of the world, and were essentially unprotected, were forced by paid Christian missionaries to surrender their spiritual freedom and native sovereignty by accepting Christian spiritual enslavement. They were forced to agree to binding spiritual contracts, a morally and ethically repugnant process that was legally empowered by a racially toxic law called the Indian Act.

Under the bogus pretext of civilizing the indigenous worlds, British and French Christians colluded to force religious conversion, a form of spiritual domination on sovereign indigenous nations and their children, in order to control them and their land wealth. Over the 150 year span of the Residential School Prisons, more than 6,000 native children were killed by their Christian guard-teachers for those lands. The Christian pogrom against indigenous spirituality killed about 1 child per week, for 150 years, and no Christian noticed the problem. When 8 Jesuits were killed the whole world heard about it, and memorialized them in grand style.

There were no monuments or pilgrimages to honour the 6,000 children killed by Christian missionaries in Christian made Hell-holes. Many of their graves and records were conveniently lost to protect the guilty.

These 6,000 courageous indigenous children actually stood up to the cruelty and brutality in the Christian Residential School prisons, and refused to surrender their native spiritual sovereignty.

Their martyrdom at the hands of paid Christian criminals, made them Canada’s highest heroes.

6,000 were killed by European Christians who were still possessed by racial hatred, and guided by a spiritually bankrupt religion invented by brutal conqueror Constantine in 325 CE. Christian colonials who failed to resolve their own racial and political hatred and conflicts without violence over 17 centuries of Christian guidance, were unleashed on the New World by Pope Alexander VI [known pedophile and murderer], when he gave the green light for Christians to have their way with the indigenous New World. The Christian Pope opened the door to the greatest evil to have swept across the New World. He approved and blessed Christian genocidal land theft, and eager Christians were happy to look upon indigenous people as subhuman savages, as they took their women, lands, and gold.

Christians cursed the New World with the most criminal, genocidal empires the world had seen. Blinded by their own lack of spiritual evolution throughout 17 centuries of Christian violence, they failed to recognize the nurturing spirituality of native belief systems as they encountered them.

Like ancient vandals, their goal was not to civilize, but destroy or enslave the indigenous worlds to serve their selfish and greedy agendas.

CANADA’S HIGHEST HEROES

The brave Canadian children who were forced to face these international criminals, triumphed over Christian criminality through their intuitive recognition and resistance to its evil. These courageous children, these great Canadians, rank as Canada’s highest heroes. They exemplify the best in Canadian spirit and sovereignty.

They are excellent models for the rest of Canada to emulate, because they did not use or support violence, nor impose their beliefs or their will on others. They did not go overseas to fight in another colonial war to defend European colonial powers that terrorized the Americas with Christian colonialism.

As a retired community activist, my usual areas of interest have been human rights and public safety. But since there doesn’t seem to be anyone around who is willing and ready to champion these 6,000 indigenous heroes, looks like it’s on me.

A few days ago, I launched a campaign in my colonial town, to honour our highest Canadian heroes, who should be memorialized and honoured in every colonial town, every large city, on the steps of Parliament, and in front of the Peace Monument.

I expect a shitstorm! Good thing I have my PPE ready.

WESTERN GOVERNMENT INCOMPETENCE IS KILLING US

Most, if not all western governments have mismanaged the Covid-19 pandemic in their countries. The soaring numbers of infected and dead victims denounce their fake protective efforts as criminal negligence.  Everyone knows that social distancing is useless indoors where pockets of contaminated air may exist without our knowledge, so we end up inhaling those viral droplets that are still active and suspended in the air for up to 3 hours because an infected person coughed or sneezed there half an hour ago, and left.  No face mask means zero protection for those without. We know this! Why are health officials trying to lie to us who know better?

The so called infection curve is a direct result of ineffective protection [social distancing], and ONLY respiratory protection for everyone will flatten it.  Face masks protect the wearer directly, as well as the environment. Zero face masks means zero protection for those without.  Washing hands will not stop an inhaled viral infection.

Testing for infection is overrated as a means of protection, because it is merely “ after the fact surveillance”, and does very little to prevent the main pathway of infection which is direct inhalation.

This is NOT our first epidemic. We’re not new to epidemics like SARs and H1N1 that were transmitted by inhalation. Our national health agencies were mandated to protect us, but they have clearly failed  to do so because of political manipulation by an unprepared federal government more interested in coverup than protection.

We must demand respiratory protection for everyone under our roof. Once again, the N-95 mask is not magic, and there are many other viable alternatives. Homemade respiratory protection in the form of: home-made surgical masks, close-fitting bandanas, wide scarves, etc…can provide a high level of protection until the better ones become available. While these forms of homemade respiratory protection are not 95% effective, they provide an order of magnitude protection [60-80%], that is far higher than 0 protection.

Unfortunately, this full regalia,  is what it takes to survive in today’s world of airborne and surface contamination.  When I wore this to do our grocery shopping, the manager approached me with raised eyebrows, until I told him that in two months he and everyone in the store would be wearing similar gear. After some discussion he agreed to unchain the shopping carts so that clients would not have to handle potentially contaminated coins to release a cart.

 

WHAT ARE YOU WEARING CHICKADEE?

This is what all the "smart" chickadees are wearing this spring, while all the "strong and brave" birds who dare to go without, will unfortunately succumb to infection.

1. Respiratory Protection - I'm wearing an N-99 face mask, [a bit more effective than an N-95 which is 95% effective against particulates and microbes.]

2. Skin Protection- I'm wearing a rubber raincoat with a hood that I draw closed with strings to cover more of my facial skin. The raincoat can be decontaminated easily with wipes or spray.

3. Face shield - from my workshop, it's a plexiglas safety shield to stop droplets from landing on my face, AND to keep my hands away from my face.

4. Disposable gloves - to protect my hands against contact with surface contamination. The Covid-19 microbe will not penetrate health skin, but it can be carried to our facial membranes which are accessible to viral infections.

Best of luck to all.

My little story is based on real life and needs a better title, so I will entitle it:

   

        "The Alchemy of Healing"

A STORY

It was a dark and stormy night that woke the old man from his fitful sleep. Philomen’s nightshirt was soaked with salty sweat, an uncomfortable result of wrestling for hours with fears and conflicts that seemed to invade his sleep lately.

He lived simply now, by his heart, at the edge of a great forest. He had come to learn its secrets, and to escape the city life that had depleted him in many ways. A long life in the artificial environment of the big city had immersed him in the addictive mindlessness of consumer culture, and desensitized him to the subtle flows of nature.  Now, away from the powerful distractions and mad routines of city life that kept him locked up emotionally and spiritually, he finally felt safe enough to divest himself of his armoured defences, and allow himself to soften and open to the world around him.

It was a natural opening process that slowly recognized and connected him with the nurturing forces of nature around him. Over time his breathing became fuller and more energizing, his sensitivity to nature increased, and in a few years he had developed a high level of awareness of himself, and everything around him.

His keen awareness allowed him to notice small, barely discernable changes happening inside and outside of himself.  In the evenings, as shadows started to play against the trees, he began to notice the presence of negative thoughts appearing in his awareness. A few years ago they would have blended in with the rest of his thoughts and gone unnoticed, but now they stood out like foreign obelisks on the landscape of his mind.

A strong gust of wind slammed the heavy workshop doors, reminding Philomen that they needed his immediate attention.  He pulled his raincoat over his nightshirt as he stepped into his boots. He ran to the workshop and fought to close the doors hard against the raging winds, before securing them with a long bar.  As he turned to go back to the house he thought he saw a black object blow across the yard, and disappear under a hay wagon.

Philomen walked over to the wagon and crouched down to have a better look. It was totally dark under the wagon, and his eyes were unable to make out anything, moving or still. He stood up and started to walk back to the farmhouse, when he heard it.  It stopped him in his tracks, and he stood frozen before the wagon. He heard it again, and this time his body reacted as the sound resonated deep in his bones. It was a familiar sound, but he could not put his finger on it. 

He crouched down again in front of the hay wagon, and looked deep into the darkness below. The cry came again, only this time it carried a long note of anguish.  Puzzled, Philomen got down on his knees to get a better view.  Thick darkness filled the area under the wagon, and he could not make out any forms or movements.  As he peered deeply into the darkness, his eyes began to make out a pair of motionless yellow lights.  

As Philomen’s eyes took in the amber glow in the darkness, he knew it to be alive, and he began to address the darkness.

“Friend or foe, I welcome you, but there’s a great storm rising, and we need to get to shelter.”

As gusts of wind swirled around them, the pair of glowing lights under the wagon remained motionless.  Storm or no storm, they showed no interest in coming out. Philomen sensed the danger of the storm building, and wanted to get back to the farmhouse, but he felt a strange bond with the thing under the wagon, and he could not detach himself and walk away.

He got down on the ground in front of the wagon, and tried to reach under it with his arm.  Suddenly, he jumped back with a scream and grabbed his arm, dripping with blood. The fury and fierceness of the attack shocked him, and forced him to back away from the wagon. 

Philomen retreated to the safety of the workshop. As he tended his wounds, he struggled to understand the strange situation, but he was stumped.  He had little time to resolve it, yet he knew he must. He began to search for tools or weapons to help him.  He took heart when he finally found an old blanket and some rope, which inspired a plan of action.   

The winds were now in complete control of the farmyard, as he knelt in front of the hay wagon again. He called loudly into the darkness under the wagon, inviting the creature to come out. He said he was the owner, and he felt a responsibility for the lives of all who lived with him.  There was no response.

Philomen had become a student of the gentle way, and he decided to use his quiet voice, to softly entice the creature out of the darkness, but the storm raged so loudly that it silenced any gentle attempts. He continued to urge, plead, and even seduce the creature into coming forward and showing itself. All his efforts to bring the creature out of darkness failed.

When it became obvious that the creature was determined to remain hidden under the wagon, Philomen folded and tied the thick blanket against his chest with ropes.  He stared into the darkness under the wagon, and said: “A powerful storm threatens us. You need not fear me, for you are what I was once. There is still enough of me in you, and enough of you in me, that together we are powerful enough to protect each other.” With those words, Philomen moved toward the creature with the glowing eyes, wrapped his arms around it and drew it to his chest.

The moment their hearts touched, the sounds of anguish changed into sounds of celebration and rejoicing, unlike anything that had been heard in that part of the country for centuries.

A SCREENING METHOD FOR AIRBORNE COVID-19 CONTAMINATION

Referring to my previous message - growing Covid-19 cultures in an attempt to quantify the level of airborne microbes in a particular room or area takes precious time when you're working against the clock in a pandemic.

A quick survey of rooms for the presence of Covid-19 microbes by taking a quick air sample and looking at the water medium for the Covid-19 microbe through a microscope, would  provide actionable information that can be used to decide if the room air is or isn't contaminated. If the air sample shows no evidence of Covid-19, it can be reused safely immediately, otherwise it will require ventilation and decontamination.

A hospital administrator under tremendous pressure to accommodate as many patients as possible is probably looking for simple YES or NO screening method to reuse patient rooms and monitor the air in other parts of the hospital. Every modern hospital [stat lab?] has microscope facilities on site, and by now knows what the Covid-19 bug looks like. This quick screening technique could be very useful in reusing patient rooms, and other areas of the hospital.

It could answer important questions fairly quickly such as: Is the air in this patient room still contaminated? Is the air in the reception/waiting area contaminated as well? Is the air in maternity and neonatal okay? Where do we need respiratory protection,and where can we be safe without it?

Yesterday, infamous American President Donald Trump made an international pariah of himself, when he created another international fiasco. This time his actions exposed his petty, shrunken heart and mind, when he ordered 3M to cancel the Canadian order for 60,000,000 face masks. So much for allies when the chips are down eh Donald? He keeps cutting all of America's vital lifelines that support and keep America successful. This President is the King of Self-Harming.

Canada's Prime Minister Trudeau, reacted to this overt American treachery well. He warned Trump publicly that his intervention was morally wrong, and that Canadian retaliation could hurt the US equally. Unfortunately Trump has no moral or ethical values, and Trudeau's word fell on deaf ears.

COVID-19 REMAINS ACTIVE FOR UP TO 3 HOURS AFTER AN INFECTED PERSON HAS COUGHED OR SNEEZED IN ROOM. 

It always amazes me how good information is often buried by reams of worthless information, and this Covid-19 pandemic is no exception. A lot of misinformation about how it spreads, has defeated or hampered our efforts to stop it’s highly aggressive spread throughout our communities.

Centuries of fighting colds and flu, has educated us down to the kindergarten level, that droplets released via coughs and sneezes are the main mechanism of transmission, followed by unprotected contact with droplets on surfaces around us.

Princeton conducted studies on  the coronavirus,[Covid-19], and found that it survives in air for up to 3 hours, and on surfaces for up to 72 hours.

How would someone determine the quality of room air where an infected patient has been living for days, and whether it’s safe to enter without respiratory protection?

The presence of Covid-19 can probably be assessed with an air sample drawn through a bubbler containing water [a water trap].  

  1. As room air is pumped through the bubbler, the water trap collects any microbes in the air stream.
  2. Sample aliquots can be taken from the trap and deposited onto a microscope slide for positive visual identification.
  3. Additional aliquots can be deposited on appropriate culture dishes [agar] for incubation, to estimate the abundance of the microbe.

Knowing whether the virus is present in room air may be sufficient information to act on, ie: Is PPE required before entering? The next quantitative step may not be very valuable at this time, since we already have the actionable information that identifies the microbe as Covid-19.

There are many types of face masks that provide various levels of protection, and NONE of them are 100% effective.  A close-fitting cloth bandana will provide enough protection for quick trips into a contaminated room or building. Wear it cowboy style, and it will always be ready for different situations you may find yourself in.  Wash and reuse.

AMERICA'S NUCLEAR DISASTER - WERE AMERICA’S MEDICAL NEEDS SACRIFICED FOR BOGUS NATIONAL SECURITY?

The primary and overarching responsibility of every government is to protect its citizens. Nations that engage in war repeatedly, and rely on a war economy for their prosperity and expansion, will focus their resources in that direction at the expense of everything else, including the medical well being of it’s own members.

Any nation that has made war for 93% of its history like the USA, has evolved into a war culture that dominates most aspects of American life. In true American tradition, Trump has declared “WAR!” on the covid-19 virus, but what can this Oval Office miscreant possibly do, launch a Hellfire or Cruise missile at it? The many foolish dangers created by Trump’s buffoonery cannot be overemphasized, and will result in many unnecessary American deaths due to his willful incompetence.

Because war is ultimately about destroying the other guy to take his stuff, the national mindset is focused on the successful destruction of the other, instead of healing itself.  Wherever a war culture has come to dominate its society, whether the home crowd supports it or not, the common people lose in many ways, including the vitally important services like medical care.

The USA’s financial commitment to war, has robbed and crippled its national health care system, and forced it into the global basement of medical services. About 2% of Americans [the elites] are very well cared for, while the rest of America, has been thrown under the military bus. America’s health care system is shamefully near the bottom [with struggling Third World countries], when it comes to universal health care for all.

War cultures are all about domination, and they automatically suppress more humane cultures within the same society that oppose collective violence. Consequently, people living in a war culture will have failed to develop and deliver vital humanitarian services, like competent medical services accessible to all, depriving themselves of the most important defence, medical defence. Homeland Security has become a Trojan Horse for international criminal activity, and an obvious farce, when it excludes medical security for all.

War cultures are grown on a substrate or foundation of violent power, and consequently do not advance morally or ethically. Its members live in a manufactured environment of constant fear and hate, so that they are deprived of a sane and rational environment in which to grow and establish; sane, rational, moral, and ethical foundations.

AMERICA’S NUCLEAR DISASTER

Perhaps the best example of how Americans have been deprived of a national health care system accessible to all, that many lesser nations have enjoyed for a long time, is what I call the American Nuclear Disaster.

I refer to the way America’s nuclear industry was conscripted for military service, preventing these scientifically advanced and technologically powerful facilities from being used for higher purposes like producing vitally important medical isotopes for diagnostics and treatment of Americans.

Canada is not a warring nation, and back in the 60s it dedicated its nuclear industry responsibly, to benefit humanity with important life saving medical isotopes. It has used its nuclear knowledge humanely and wisely to benefit all, not just the war makers, and it has been quietly producing and supplying medical isotopes to the USA since the 60s. 

When Washington was running the fake cold war back in the 50s, the US government legally forced, conscripted, or mandated, all American nuclear power reactors, and I believe some research reactors, to dedicate their nuclear operations to producing bomb grade uranium to destroy, instead of focusing on much needed medical isotopes to heal.

How do we rehabilitate warring governments from their addiction to violent war? Will colonization by the Covid-19 virus change America radically? Will Washington take advantage of this opportunity to crank up social engineering as a fake solution to what appears to be a pandemic?

COVID-19 COLONIZES HUMANITY

The way a live thing FUNCTIONS is far more informative about its nature and agenda, than books of expert descriptions. As we watch the covid-19 bug move through humanity like a highly  aggressive enemy, with an almost unstoppable will, we suddenly comprehend that it is indeed trying to colonize us, as hosts. And like all colonizers it will destroy the weak and defenceless first. If this bug was engineered to target the senior layers of societies, then they succeeded.   

Apparently, second waves are likely in Wuhan and South Korea. Equally disturbing is the emerging evidence that a large number of patients who've recovered from severe bouts, report lingering problems with memory and consciousness.

In this blog I've discussed various forms of colonization, [in no order]:

  • Constantine's colonization of Europe and the Middle East by Roman Christians,
  • colonization of the New World by European Christians,
  • attempted colonization of Europe by German Christians.  
  • Yahweh's colonial ambitions in ancient Palestine.
  • Yahweh's backdoor colonization of men's minds and hearts, thru the Wetico virus,

I've revised my info bulletin below, and offer it freely to all, so long as all hold me harmless.

As covid-19 colonizes humanity around the world, it creates enormous challenges, especially for those of us who may be at high risk. This compilation of protective information is taken from reliable scientific sources, to fill in significant gaps left by government agencies.

Those of us who have worked in hazardous environments where airborne contamination is present, know the importance of: remaining calm, protecting yourself directly with effective barriers, and planning your activities to consolidate and reduce travel.  If you find yourself in a suspicious or uncomfortable public situation; minimize your contact as you back out, and reassess your plan from a safe location like your car.

Symptoms: Coronavirus causes a range of flu like signs and symptoms, or none at all.  

The incubation period - is not well known. It seems to vary from person to person, and ranges from 5.2 days to around 14 days.

Primary means of transmission – Exposure to an infected source like a patient.  A recent Princeton University study reveals that droplets of Covid-19 released by coughing can travel 6 feet, and stay active for up to 3 hours in air.  Coughing is the most likely, and primary means of transmission from person to person. Face masks provide adequate protection.

Secondary means of transmission -  appears to be through unprotected contact with surface contamination. Princeton has found that droplets on soft surfaces like paper, cardboard, cloth, can survive for up to 24 hours, and up to 72 hours on hard surfaces.  Avoid all contact; use barriers like gloves, or disinfect with detergents as needed. 

Bring and use protective barriers like: masks, disposable gloves, paper towels, disinfecting wipes, various baggies.

Remote handling tools: use tweezers or tongs to handle suspicious items. If in doubt, leave it for 3 days.

Be suspicious - If you order pizza for example, it will be clean through heating, but the delivery guy visits many homes, so handle the box with gloves or paper towels.

Hands - become a liability in contaminated environments. Learn to control your hands, so they do not touch your face. Keep them in your pockets, or wear disposable gloves. Carry disinfecting wet wipes and paper towels.

Shoes – are often overlooked. The soles will probably be clean from grinding on roads and sidewalks, but the tops of shoes that you handle can become contaminated in a room where a patient coughs or sneezes. Wear gloves to remove them, and leave them outside in the sun for a day.

Decontamination - You can use diluted bleach, detergents, alcohol solutions, or disinfecting wipes, on surfaces. Wash hands thoroughly, and after every suspicious contact.

Coronaviruses: begin degrading quickly in temperatures higher than 56 degrees Celsius [128 degrees F], and in direct UV light.

CPAPs - can be used as ventilators to support respiration, under controlled conditions. Because CPAPs exhaust air back into the room, anyone entering a patient room should wear personal protection. Some hospitals are planning on using CPAPs as back up ventilators. 

DO NOT USE – washroom hot air dryers [blowers] on potentially contaminated hands, after washing. Wet hands still contain microbes that can be blown up into your breathing zone as you stand in front of the machine. Use paper towels to reduce airborne bugs.

Stay clean, stay safe.
