If real knowledge in any subject is the goal, or if one wishes to understand what is behind the world scene, I think we know by now that ‘relying’ on corporate and state media, commonly called mainstream media, is a waste of time. They are generally not very informative, they are not independent, and they are certainly not credible. Likewise, the jungle of alternative voices is endless and full of swamps, notwithstanding paid trolls in halls of smoke and mirrors. How often have you found yourself clicking through link after link, reading here and there, which in itself is quite fatiguing, and then realizing that you have come nowhere?
Read carefully when a piece is about a topic you really know something about, and when that fails, how can you know if it fails in areas where you don’t have knowledge? Listen first where there is Silence!
When the Internet is the portal, one does not acquire the depths of thought that reading solid books will. And every step is risky. Still, we do live integrated with that mesh. So, I scrutinize websites that on the face of it at first could be seen as worthwhile, and then I concentrate on those that consistently over time survives very thorough reading. Nothing trumps detailed study.
But, being human, I cannot resist dipping my toes in cold water, and yes, it is quite entertaining to view the painstaking machinations of diverse parties in the deception game. I give some rather random examples and comment on how I might evaluate them. I do this here, in the open and somewhat clumsily, as a process, to find out what I actually think – and ascertain as true.
I do emphasize much what is labeled Western culture, as that is where I belong, what I know, to which I am inclined, and is as far as I can see where I will be in future years. You will see that I to a degree focus on North America, and Norway is very much a subculture to the USA. Because I am Norwegian, I see that we are so closely knit and allied to that nation that it would not be too out of place to regard us as an integrated territory – not the least with resident installations. We do not quite seem to internalize our responsibility for what ‘we’ partake in, in policies, for what we actually do and have done. And look now which positions and advantages several of our ‘honest representatives’ have attained.
The shortest way to ‘predict’ what will later occur and exist here in Norway, and a fast track to detect what is already established, is to peruse some practices that are rampant in the USA & UK already. Do we want that? Granted that it also is a tendency elsewhere: Do we want to go further down the lane that we already have mounted upon?
I am old enough to remember the ‘cold war’ very concisely. Today I find it striking that the then propagandized ‘terribilites’ of the Soviet Union, and DDR, and certain other countries for that matter, is brought to rife fruition in present-day federal USA. So who is to pinpoint the real criminals? Do we believe everything we are told about history? Who are the culprits among countries and world leaders? Are countries nations or corporations? Are we ‘free’? Do we see the affiliations? Do we see corruption where it is? Do we see motives? Are the people considered worthy to be counted? Do we recognize injustice and then act accordingly?
Astrology is about matters of magnitude. A real astrologer does not delve into pop-culture and gossip. A real astrologer is not a prostitute in commercial or narcissistic wastelands. Astrology deals with the Reality. Astrology is about existential questions. Astrology is positioned exactly in the duality of forces. No art can more precisely point the way out of conditioning and manipulations – that does not mean that genuine artists or other sincere revelators have a lesser role. Division is not the way to go, and division between sciences is a construct. Study unbiased history, and it becomes evident that we are not now culturally on a peak. Recognize scientism for what it is.
It soon becomes clear when surfing the ‘Net, naturally being drawn into circles of familiarity, that the same stories are strewn evenly out on many sites. This may be because these sites basically are accretions and not based on own research; or it is the first warning sign that you are dealing with propaganda, which again may have sinister motives. The skilled surfer seeks out genuine sites in order to learn. Pay attention to details. Recognize symbols.
We must keep in mind that there are conflicting interests, fanaticism, deception, and also evil. While we are here, we must make a choice, we ought take a stand, unless we want to spend our short while as sleepwalkers, as consumers with focus on emptiness, and with a naive trust in what we are told in authorized texts. We do not know the ultimate answer as to why or how we came to this beautiful world, but my compass tells me that unless we want to stay under tyranny, we must call out and lure out those that hide behind curtains, who have pleasure in mischief, and who may or may not realize that we on our voyage are responsible, and that the result of our actions will return to ourselves. We are not separate from what we live in. If we inflict pain, we will experience pain. If we are driven by greed, we will starve. If we destroy, if we build a repressive society, our children will be those who inhabit there.
When you are reading about financial matters like banking, and where central banking and monetary mechanisms are not discussed, you can rest assured that the text at hand at best is shallow, if not misleading. This is why many soon understood that the whole ‘Occupy Wall Street’ charade was superficial and unconvincing. If this ‘movement’ were genuine, and not managed, we would see crowds of people ‘occupying’, say encircling, certain buildings and direct subsidiaries, and more targeted ‘protests’ in financial districts in several countries.
I dare not go far into this, as I am not well versed in this area. I find money boring. However, there is enough material to go by. In finance, the roots and causes are deep and tangled. Let that be clear. Decoy buildings and conferences is not where the strategists are, they must be decoded.
Every time you hear mention of our ‘capitalist’ system, notice that it is a misnomer. We do not have a free economy. If that were true, businesses and institutions would go bust if they buckle. If large banks and corporations were not ‘bailed out’ with our property, we would be in a situation more beneficial to us all, today. Are ‘money’ real? Is it? Do we see what we allow?
It was easy already from the start to sift through the veils and find out who ‘Anonymous’ might also be. Wherever we see that particular purported ‘mask’, we know that there is not much to learn. We only have to look at the proclaimed ‘attack’ targets, or non-targets. Any sincere outlet or activity may have informational value by its own, but as soon as the ‘Anonymous’ theme is used, it is time for doing homework. And if it is not sincere? Well, disinformation is still information.
One may wonder why commanders behind domestic troops (in various forms) find it opportune to enter into an obvious street theater, in the childish ways that only rude ‘law enforcement’ can muster. What can be so important in that situation, that when people get badly hurt, which occurs, it is worth it, even when the observant young will remember for the future? I cannot answer better than anyone, but I am certain that any occasion or complex that yields such ‘field’ practice is a welcomed opportunity. Should entwined agitation arise, or violence escalate, it can be inferred that there is a golden chance for a real crackdown, with a precedence.
That makes me think about those mindless paychecks that now are the morphed ‘police’, this brutal militarized monster, these killers, tasers, and SWATs. They are everywhere orchestrated. The situation in the USA is indiscriminate and extreme, but others learn quickly. Don’t be fooled: Some domestic operations are cloaked with live drama.
Who are the masters? Who lead and give orders? Do willing servants know the exit of the structure they are erecting? Do they see the fence? Do they see the direction they support? Do they have empathy when with weaponized force an elderly person is evicted from a home, or when individuals or whole quarters are strangleholded with threatening violence, incarceration and file keeping? Who are the real initiators? The initial naive protesters or the provocateurs? The banks and corporations? Look at who serves who. See what is stockpiled, and where. Is casting a ballot once in a while enough?
Still, do we, at least in Norway, realize that we by pure chance are winners in a lottery? Do we deeply understand that we are a privileged minority, along with a small percentage of humans; that the sceneries at large, and not so distant, all around us, ought not be ignored if we as individuals and ordinary people have any integrity?
Edward Snowden called for ‘global solutions’ in November 2013. We who can smell a rat sat up and thought twice. Incidentally, there is little in Snowden’s revelations that were not already known. More than one before him had come out with same information, even more consistently; with little fanfare, and they are still at home. That the NSA and many others sweep up everything was not surprising.
So I looked at his Radix (Rodden AA), and there was something that I seldom encounter. He had no Dynamical Angular Primary Directions In Config in 2013, and no ‘heavy’ transits (beyond Saturn), by conjunction, to Radix. My ‘credo’ means implication, and not always equivalence, [Axis.d => E, and not Axis.d <=> E, or E => Axis.d], E meaning ‘Event’, but I would never have guessed that Snowden’s Radix would be ‘blank’ in this way in a monumental year. As far as it goes, his birth data are solid; otherwise this chart would be in the Meme-section. (In a way, all charts are memes.) Of course there is always the possibility of being duped – or one could find this or that technique that ‘explains’ the lack of primary dynamics. It has not often been so in my experience with groundbreaking cases. To me, this was unexpected.
P.Moon and T.Saturn were both through their first return back then (seen in Radix, with aspect configurations). These are cycles that we always must consider. They are absolutely important here, even more on an inner level. The Secondary Chart, as such, as a dynamical state, must be taken into account – and yes, there are active aspects. There is a.o. an exact P.(Sun sq Saturn)(with Pluto) – a trying time, a period.
Here, now, I am focusing on basics. Charts are analyzed more thoroughly elsewhere in these pages. I may revisit this one – as well as go into those for Assange and Manning.
This could be a question of character. One thing that overlords really fear, is that there may be a genuine human being in their staff, one who does not compromise true conscience, one that could never become prostitute, and who only fears the consequences of one’s own actions, which one cannot escape when the bill is due. There will be more lanterns coming forth. ‘One or many’ is a law of Nature, and we already have more than one who tells.
I cannot say whether Edward Snowden is genuine, and I cannot say if Julian Assange is. Manning referred to real video games, let us not forget that, and is now used as a warning and scapegoat. Shooting the messenger is an old art.
One of the first tell-tale signs with Snowden in Hong Kong was the crowds carrying, and walls and fences plastered with, prefabricated placards. We know this scenery very well from nearly all staged ‘demonstrations’. The distributed signs are mostly all alike, or very similar. They are certainly not made spontaneously by people in agitated mood. What is seldom noted: these artifacts cost money and takes time to produce. And, of course: the press coverage in extenso. What about other diverse ‘whistleblowers’, some even more important at that. Did or do they get attention? Are they all well?
Have Snowden’s public appearances changed anything, other than consolidate the activities of the NSA and other factions? So much has been written by acute commentators, that I find little reason now to repeat words and efforts. Let us also not be blinded by this Greenwald & Co., which, though the reputation was good beforehand, now is more like handling trickling glitter.
There is a real and viable avenue by which to put obstacles into the fore, and that is when people, justified as taxpayers, through public offices and businesses, act together to stop the flow of water and other necessities into the facilities of the Octopus. But show me a good example where enough people will spend one iota of their complacency and dependencies. Well, maybe when it’s on a doorstep.
Assange: We are still waiting for a certain thumb drive containing damaging information on large banks. He announced that its publication would be shortly into the new year, at the time when we saw him cruising by in London, surrounded by placards and throngs of people, and then living on an estate. I am not skating over the repressions from ‘justice’. I simply ask why he doesn’t keep his word. Wouldn’t that thumb drive really be something by which to make an argument? What has Assange brought us of lasting value, that informed researchers didn’t already know? And, again: the press coverage. I can readily think of quite a few who better deserved publicity about what has befallen them.
Maybe the missing dynamics in Snowden’s chart signifies that this is about us, in our detachment and absence from reality. Why do we accept being mouthed and groped? It is a very short time ago that we intensely discussed and felt safe in our privacy, and our ‘trusted’ governments assured us that there would never be any cross-references between registers, which then were fewer. Why would I now believe Norwegian bureaucrats and officials more than others?
Look at the actions of the EU: On the one hand they loudly decry being violated by the US[A] in this regard, then they – subserviently or in collusion, pivoting on the same hub – trample in broad light on the president of the sovereign nation of Bolivia, in stark contrast to established law. This is one example. Which are their allegiances?
The success in transforming our ‘democratic’ societies beyond recognition is blatant. The face of ‘justice’ in the ‘fair’ USA is grim, more now than ever; the prison system is among the worst – and daily life there is not anymore perceived from the outside as preferable, as was the case not very long ago. The rampant, and extreme, police brutality is a case in point. How is it that the same masks manifest simultaneously worldwide with identical apparel and manner if that course were not intentional and willed by our ‘leaders’, or rather, those behind?
The UK belongs to this axis, to this picture: they also crush opponents with State blessing. We watch. It is not always easy to deduct and find the factual originators in a construct, but the steering wheels are visible.
To an extent Norway belongs to, and would naturally gravitate towards, the intellectually sophisticated German cultural sphere, which of course many who read do by themselves. I will go further into the European perspective as this blog develops. And, lest we should forget, Russia is Norway’s neighbor, and I would recommend you to find out about the qualities there.
Now you might ask why I don’t mention Canada and Australia while I’m at it. I do. Australia especially is much more of a repressive society than we like to think, and there has up till now been sparse focus on it.
Remember, my perspective is the ‘West’, this is my field of vision, these are my kin. I do know, though, that many of you who read this, in parts of the world about which I know little, on a daily basis undergo oppression and nightmares, with little attention and consequence from our brave politicians here – who with closed eyes and pretense do lucrative business with yours instead.
Why do we subdue and accept? Why don’t we react? Do we enjoy widespread restrictions as to what before was normal life? Do we like omnipresent eyes? Is being docile in comfort what we want? Do we have commitment? Willing servants don’t.
