Dolphins in the Navy

Since I live in Hawaii, news about dolphins always catches my eye. I’ve seen them many times here in the wild. Once I was alone meditating on the cliffs on the ocean at Honaunau, a sacred spot, when an entire pod swam up to the cliff shore directly underneath me. They looked up at me as if to say, hello, did you call? It was both exhilarating and eerie.

Last week I noticed the Navy released information about their program using dolphins and sea lions to patrol military bases. Trained Navy dolphins can drop a beacon if they detect a person in the water; they can also detect underwater mines. Dolphins were used for this in Iraq in 2003. They also patrolled the bay in San Diego during the Republican National Convention in 1996.

The U.S. Navy Marine Mammal Program explains dolphins are useful for their echolocation, or biological sonar, which enables them to locate mines or other objects underwater. The Navy also lists a page of FAQs about their program, to explain questions such as why they use marine mammals (they also employ sea lions and whales), and whether they use them for offensive warfare. They claim they do not train them to attack, yet after Hurricane Katrina there were reports that three dozen U.S. military dolphins, which had been trained and fitted with toxic darts, had been washed away and were missing. They were supposedly accounted for soon after, and the Pentagon denied they were ever trained to attack. Perhaps the fear mongers and rumor mill at work; perhaps the truth is still secret.

The history of the use of marine mammals by the military can be found at PBS. Begun in 1960, the program was originally classified. Rumors still abound that dolphins were used to attack and kill enemy swimmers in Vietnam. By the 1990s, with the Cold War over, much (but not all) of the program was declassified and many of the dolphins were retired. Some still claim dolphins were used to attack and kill; many animal rights organizations object to their employment, and I found a petition online objecting to the Navy’s use of dolphins.

Many people believe dolphins are particularly special, beyond their incredible intelligence. I’ve seen many spiritual books and websites devoted to them. John Lilly was a scientist who was responsible for much of the early research involving dolphins and their means of communication, providing the basis for the movie “Day of the Dolphin” and the enactment of the Marine Mammal Protection Act. He also contributed to research involving psychology and human consciousness, including use of the isolation tank (forming the basis for the movie “Altered States”), and is often discussed alongside people like Aldous Huxley. His work was cited in an article by Steve Hammons, who also responded to the recent news about dolphins in the Navy. Hammons noted that the recently declassified information about Project Stargate includes a 1987 report called “A Remote Action Investigation with Marine Animals” regarding research conducted by SRI International into anomalous cognition. In other words, the Pentagon is looking into remote viewing, telepathy and other ESP phenomena relating to dolphins and our means to communicate with them.

UFO sighting makes news in Chicago

This past November airline personnel at O’Hare International Airport in Chicago reported sighting an unknown craft hovering in the area. The Chicago Tribune finally mentioned it on January 1, and then commented on it again the other day, after a flood of responses. I especially liked this one:

“Hmm. Looks like we’re being visited by advanced craft from other worlds, and not only is the U.S. government keen to cover up the details, so are many private corporations whose existence would be threatened by the free-energy technology that powers these vehicles.”

I always find it interesting when these things hit the mainstream news.

Scientists Create Cloak of Invisibility

Another news item from Wanttoknow.info(for the full ABC news article click here): “Scientists are boldly going where only fiction has gone before to develop a Cloak of Invisibility. It isn’t quite ready to hide a Romulan space ship from Capt. James T. Kirk or to disguise Harry Potter, but it is a significant start and could show the way to more sophisticated designs. In this first successful experiment, researchers from the United States and England were able to cloak a copper cylinder. It’s like a mirage, where heat causes the bending of light rays and cloaks the road ahead behind an image of the sky. “We have built an artificial mirage that can hide something from would-be observers in any direction,” said cloak designer David Schurig, a research associate in Duke University’s electrical and computer engineering department. Cloaking used special materials to deflect radar or light or other waves around an object, like water flowing around a smooth rock in a stream. The new work points the way for an improvd version that could hide people and objects from visible light. Conceptually, the chance of adapting the concept to visible light is good, Schurig said in a telephone interview. But, he added, “From an engineering point of view it is very challenging.” The cloaking of a cylinder from microwaves comes just five months after Schurig and colleagues published their theory that it should be possible. In an ideal situation, the cloak and the item it is hiding would be invisible. An observer would see whatever is beyond them, with no evidence the cloaked item exists.

Note: Remember that technologies developed in top-secret military, intelligence, and other government projects are generally at the very least 10 years in advance of anything being developed in the public domain.”

Scientists teleport two different objects

From WantToKnow.info: “Physicists in Denmark have teleported information from light to matter bringing quantum communication and computing closer to reality. Until now scientists have teleported similar objects such as light or single atoms over short distances from one spot to another in a split second. But Professor Eugene Polzik and his team at the Niels Bohr Institute at Copenhagen University in Denmark have made a breakthrough by using both light and matter. “It is one step further because for the first time it involves teleportation between light and matter, two different objects. One is the carrier of information and the other one is the storage medium,” Polzik explained in an interview on Wednesday. The experiment involved for the first time a macroscopic atomic object containing thousands of billions of atoms. They…teleported the information a distance of half a meter but believe it can be extended further. “Teleportation between two singe atoms had been done two years ago by two teams, but this was done at a distance of a fraction of a millimeter,” Polzik, of the Danish National Research Foundation Center for Quantum Optics, explained. “Our method allows teleportation to be taken over longer distances because it involves light as the carrier of entanglement.” Quantum entanglement involves entwining two or more particles without physical contact.” For the full article click here.

RFID Chip in Passports

From Want to Know.info: An article in the Washington Post reveals new plans to add RFID chips to our passports.

If you have a passport, now is the time to renew it — even if it’s not set to expire anytime soon. In many countries, including the United States, passports will soon be equipped with RFID chips. And you don’t want one of these chips in your passport. RFID stands for “radio-frequency identification.” Passports with RFID chips store an electronic copy of the passport information: your name, a digitized picture, etc. And in the future, the chip might store fingerprints or digital visas from various countries. By itself, this is no problem. But RFID chips don’t have to be plugged in to a reader to operate. Like the chips used for automatic toll collection on roads or automatic fare collection on subways, these chips operate via proximity. The risk to you is the possibility of surreptitious access: Your passport information might be read without your knowledge or consent by a government trying to track your movements, a criminal trying tosteal your identity or someone just curious about your citizenship. Security mechanisms are also vulnerable, and several security researchers have already discovered flaws. One found that he could identify individual chips via unique characteristics of the radio transmissions. Another successfully cloned a chip. The Colorado passport office is already issuing RFID passports, and the State Department expects all U.S. passport offices to be doing so by the end of the year. Many other countries are in the process of changing over. So get a passport before it’s too late.

Celestial Secrets

“A global array of inexplicable stone megaliths stands as a haunting reminder of a past long gone, of knowledge long forgotten…or is it?” – Surfing the Tao: A Revolution of Free Will

Alternative and free energy technology has been a favorite topic of mine since starting down this journey into the strange and unexplained. Much of my early research created an awareness of some kind of mysterious power source used in very ancient times, which could have been passed down to certain elite groups even today. I’ve found some tantalizing tidbits in various places – The Atlantis Blueprint by Colin Wilson and Rand Flem-Ath connects ancient sacred sites like the Great Pyramid and Stonehenge into a complex network centered around Giza as the prime meridian. In their model all of these ancient sites (including Rosslyn, Jerusalem, Babylon, Machu Picchu and many others discovered after their grid was determined) fit together in a neat geometrical grid around the planet.

Another researcher, Bruce Cathie, has written several books about a planetary energy grid. He discovered that these same ancient sites were located on points within this grid indicating specific connections to light, gravity and mass, “It appears as though Stonehenge was constructed to the universal geometric harmonics of light itself.” (p. 170, The Energy Grid) He believes they had specific functions connected to power production, communication, transportation, healing and perhaps other things as well, and questions why there is ‘feverish, government-based’ activity at these locations. Tesla himself knew his technologies needed to be located at specific points on the earth’s surface to work properly. Other sites which discuss ley lines, geodesic energies and the alignment of sacred sites can be found here.

Technologies such as HAARP, ELF, weather modification, electromagnetic and advanced psychotropic weaponry could be utilizing a global array which harnesses that same energy source used long ago by ancient cultures. And who knows what other advances are out there. Once can find rumors that the delta-shaped blimp, a possible source for many UFO sightings, is actually a military project which uses electrokinetic propulsion – resulting in a silent, floating ship. Also an alleged holographic technology can beam realistic images and audio anywhere.

Cathie believes the main reason much of this technology is being kept secret is because of the financial consequences should this knowledge be released. National security is at stake too – although it’s rumored that many other countries already have and are likely using these technologies. Right now the oil giants reap the most benefits of our out-dated energy systems, but this is likely to change. Tesla Motors recently announced the development of a powerful electric car which, though still expensive and in its early stages, could revolutionize our dependence on oil. Another researcher also recently came out with a controversial new energy discovery, now being hotly debated in the halls of science. And there are many others out there who understand the science behind alternative and free energy, and are working against great odds to get the truth out – not only about the technologies still beyond our reach, but about how keeping them secret creates the danger they could be used for the wrong reasons. It’s truly a brave new world, and we’d be better off knowing a little more about it – both for our own sake, and for the sake of our planet.

Who Killed the Electric Car?

From www.WantToKnow.info: A poignant new documentary asks who killed GM’s promising electric car project? A new documentary released June 28 in New York and Los Angeles, appropriately titled Who Killed The Electric Car? tries in Clue-like fashion to figure out why GM pulled the plug on its EV1 electric vehicle program, which by most accounts was approaching success when the first prototype was introduced in the mid-1990s. “It was a revolutionary, modern car, requiring no gas, no oil changes, no mufflers, and rare brake maintenance,” according to a synopsis of the film. In the 1990s a strict clean-air mandate introduced in California that called for zero-emission vehicles was what led GM to introduce the EV1. Eventually that California mandate got watered down from “zero” to “low” emissions, and the automakers decided to literally blow up their EV programs. GM, which leased out the EV1 cars it produced, called them all back after California changed its policy. The cars were crushed and shredded. Who were the people leasing these vehicles? Tom Hanks, Mel Gibson and Ted Danson, among others, many of whom appear in the movie and talk favourably about their electric cars. If the implications of an advance means loss of future business to a paradigm, the key players of that paradigm will lobby to kill it. The paradigm? Big oil. Similarly, the auto industry has an interest in perpetuating the manufacture of vehicles that require routine, costly maintenance.
