The roots of the Baha'i faith lie in the Shi'ite sect of Islam which was led by 12 successive Imams, descendants of Muhammad's son-in-law, Ali. The 12th Imam, as a child, withdrew from society to escape assassination, the inevitable fate of his 12 predecessors. He would make contact with the faithful through "Gates," individuals through whom he would give his teachings.
In 1844, Mirza Ali Muhammad (1819-1850) declared himself to be the "Gate," the "Bab" (pronounced Bob). He claimed he was not just a "Gate," but rather the "Gate" of God, a major Manifestation of God equal to the prophet Muhammad. For six years he gathered the faithful around him, proclaimed a new revelation and the eventual appearance of the final Manifestation for this cycle of human history. After numerous armed conflicts with Muslim authorities, the Bab was martyred in 1850 and his followers scattered. - watchman.org
As many as 200,000 Iraqi Shiites ended up in political exile in Iran over the course of the 1980s and 1990s. Many of these exiles joined the Iran-based al-Da`wa, which tended to accept Khomeini's idea of clerical rule. But the organization was riven by internal fighting over the party's relationship to the Supreme Jurisprudent. Clerical leaders of the al-Da`wa seemed especially attracted by Khomeinism, while the lay leaders insisted on maintaining the party's autonomy from the Supreme Jurisprudent. The question had implications for al-Da`wa's future. Was it to become a mere appendage of Tehran or remain an Iraqi party with a distinctive ideology? Some clerical members of the party's central committee, such as Muhammad Mahdi Asefi and Sayyid Kazim al-Haeri, wanted the party to put itself under the direct authority of Khomeini and then his successor, Ali Khamenei. This step would have entailed dissolving the party into the Iranian Hezbollah. Khomeini himself reportedly showed no enthusiasm for this step, and the lay members of the executive committee were also unwilling to subordinate themselves to the religious institution. The issue festered inside the party throughout the late 1980s and into the 1990s in Iran. In 2000 Asefi was forced to resign as party leader over his continued attempts to put it under the authority of Iranian Supreme Jurisprudent Ali Khamenei.
The al-Da`wa branch in London (led by Abo Ali and Ibrahim Jaafari) had a more lay cast. It also had the greatest freedom of movement, and so the center of gravity of the party moved away from Iran. - Julian Cole
The Shi-ites - The Party of Ali
The Shiites (a name derived from the Arabic shiat Ali, "the party of Ali") constitute one of the two major branches of Islam, the other, larger branch being the Sunnites. Following the death of Muhammad, disagreement arose as to the necessary qualifications and exact function of his successors as leaders (Imams) of the Muslim community. The Shiites are those who insisted that only members of the Prophet's clan, specifically, the descendants of Muhammad's daughter Fatima and her husband Ali, could qualify. Although Ali became (655) the fourth caliph, he was murdered in 661, and the majority recognized the Umayyad Muawiya I as caliph. The Shiites, however, supported the claims of Ali's sons: Hasan, who died mysteriously c. 669, and Husayn, who was killed by Umayyad troops at Kerbala in 680 (Kerbala, in Iraq, became the major pilgrimage center for the Shiites).
Shiism has three major subdivisions as well as numerous offshoots. The majority are called Twelvers (Ithna Ashariyya), because they recognize 12 imams, beginning with Ali; the 12th disappeared in 873 but will return as the Mahdi (messiah). Twelver Shiism became the state religion of Persia (Iran) under the Safavid dynasty in the 16th century; it retains that position in the present - day Islamic republic of Iran. The other two major subdivisions are the Seveners (Ismailis) and the Fivers (Zaydites).
Shiism emphasizes the spiritual function of the Prophet's successor, the imam, in whom the Prophetic Light is ever present in this world. He is believed to be divinely protected against sin and error and to have an infallible understanding of the Koran, a supernatural knowledge of future events, and intercessory powers. - Willem A Bijlefeld

ancient name for the land that lies between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers (in modern Iraq), from Gk. mesopotamia (khora), lit. "the country between two rivers," from fem. of mesopotamos, from mesos "middle" + potamos "river" .
In 19c. the word was used in the sense of "anything which gives irrational or inexplicable comfort to the hearer," based on the story of the old woman who told her pastor that she "found great support in that comfortable word Mesopotamia" ["Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase & Fable," 1870]. The place was called Mespot (1917) by British soldiers serving there in World War I.
By 7,000 BCE, in what is called the Fertile Crescent, in West Asia, where hunter-gatherers had roamed, planting had grown into the major source of food. There, true farming had begun, with the growing of wheat and barley, the domestication of animals and people permanently settled. By 4500 BCE a people archaeologists call Ubaidians were living in towns in southern Mesopotamia near where the Tigris and Euphrates rivers emptied into the Persian Gulf. The Ubaidians drained marshes. They grew wheat and barley and irrigated their crops by digging ditches to river waters. They kept farm animals. Some of them manufactured pottery. They did weaving, leather or metal work, and some of them were involved in trade with other societies.
By 4000 BCE in Syria, was a society with regional centers and a complex government. Here, as with the Ubaidians, were huge ovens for baking bread for numerous people, and people manufactured fine pottery. In the year 2000 of modern times, at Tell Hamoukar, archaeologists discovered a protective city wall, and they described the place of their digging as more than a town - they described it as a city. And they found what they call primitive hieroglyphics: markings for record keeping of trade transactions.
It was around 4000 BCE that a people called Sumerians moved into Mesopotamia, perhaps from around the Caspian Sea. By 3800 BCE the Sumerians had supplanted the Ubaidians and Semites in southern Mesopotamia. They built better canals for irrigating crops and for transporting crops by boat to village centers. They improved their roads, over which their donkeys trod, some of their donkeys pulling wheeled carts. And the Sumerians grew in number, the increase in population the key element in creating what we call civilization - a word derived from an ancient word for city.
At least twelve cities arose among the Sumerians. Among them were Ur, Uruk, Kish and Lagash - Ur, for example, becoming a city of about 24,000 people. In the center of each city was a temple that housed the city's gods, and around each city were fields of grain, orchards of date palms, and land for herding. Besides planting and harvesting crops, some Sumerians hunted, fished, or raised livestock. In addition to an increase in population, civilization was also about variety, and enough food was produced to support people who worked at other occupations - such as the priesthood, pottery making, weaving, carpentry and smithing. There were also traders, and the Sumerians developed an extensive commerce by land and sea. They built seaworthy ships, and they imported from afar items made from the wood, stone, tin and copper not found nearby. - world History - fsmitha.com

"The earliest representation of what would become the modern concept of Hell was the Sumerian belief in the kingdom of the dead. The original master of ceremonies of this domain was probably Ereshkigal, Goddess of Darkness, Gloom, and Death. She was described as frightfully evil, yet somehow, her rule was overthrown by Nergal, the god of War. "
"This oldest story of creation contains some surprising similarities to the stories which would later be included in Genesis and almost certainly served as it's inspiration. Supporters of the teachings of Moses refuse to accept this possability only because there is no mention of God by any acceptable name and the origin is pagan.

The Sacking Of Iraq's Museums -
US Wages War Against Culture And History
By Patrick Martin 4-16-3
At least 80 percent of the 170,000 separate items stored at the National Museum of Antiquities in Baghdad were stolen or destroyed during the looting rampage that followed the US military occupation of Baghdad. The museum was the greatest single storehouse of materials from the civilizations of ancient Mesopotamia, including Sumeria, Akkadia, Babylonia, Assyria and Chaldea. It also held artifacts from Persia, Ancient Greece, the Roman Empire and various Arab dynasties.
The museum held the tablets with Hammurabi's Code, perhaps the world's first system of laws, and cuneiform texts that are the oldest known examples of writing-epic poems, mathematical treatises, historical accounts. An entire library of clay tablets had not yet been deciphered or researched, in part because of the US-backed sanctions that restricted travel to Iraq.
There are direct commercial reasons for the Bush administration to permit the plundering of Iraq's cultural treasures. According to a report April 6 in the Sunday Herald, a Scottish newspaper, among those who met with the Pentagon before the onset of the war were representatives of the American Council for Cultural Policy (ACCP), a lobbying group for wealthy collectors and art dealers that has sought to relax Iraq's strict ban on the export of cultural artifacts.
The group's treasurer, William Pearlstein, has criticized Iraq's policy as "retentionist" and said he would urge the post-war government to make it easier to export artifacts to the United States. The group sought to revise the Cultural Property Implementation Act, the US law that regulates such international trafficking in artistic treasures and antiques. According to this press account, "News of the group's meeting with the government has alarmed scientists and archaeologists who fear the ACCP is working to a hidden agenda that will see the US authorities ease restrictions on the movement of Iraqi artifacts after a coalition victory in Iraq." - source

US and UK smuggled thousands of national treasures out of Iraq
The latest figures, presented to the art crime conference yesterday by John Curtis of the British Museum, suggested that half of the 40 iconic items from the Iraq National Museum in Baghdad still had not been retrieved. And of at least 15,000 items looted from its storerooms, about 8,000 have yet to be traced.
About 4,000 of the objects taken from the museum had been recovered in Iraq. But illustrating the international demand for such antiquities, Dr Curtis said around 1,000 had been confiscated in the US, 500 pieces had been impounded in France, 250 in Switzerland and 200 or so in Jordan.
Other artefacts have been retrieved from surrounding countries such as Syria, Kuwait, Iran and Turkey. None of these objects has yet been sent back to Iraq.
Other items had been destroyed or stolen from enormously important archaeological sites such as those at Nimrud and Babylon. "Some of them resemble minefields there are so many holes," Dr Curtis said.

The Anti-christ In the Apocalypse
Nearly all commentators find Antichrist mentioned in the Apocalypse, but they do not agree as to the particular chapter of the Book in which the mention occurs. Some point to the "beast" of 11:7, others to the "red dragon" of Chapter 12, others again to the beast "having seven heads and ten horns" of 13, sqq.,
while many scholars identify Antichrist with the beast which had "two horns, like a lamb" and spoke "as a dragon" (13:11, sqq.), or with the scarlet-coloured beast "having seven heads and ten horns" (17), or, finally, with Satan "loosed out of his prison," and seducing the nations. - newadvent.org
Draco refers to:

Draco (programming language), a shareware programming language for CP/M and the Amiga.
Draco lizard, a genus of small tropical agamas (about 20 cm including the tail), capable of gliding by using a gliding skin that is bound to their long ribs.
In brief, the recorded Dragon lineage starts with the Annunaki and descends through the proto-Scythians, the Sumerians in one branch and the early Egyptians in another; the Phoenicians, the Mittani, back to the Scythians again through marital alliance, along to the "Tuatha de Danaan" and the Fir Bolg; down through their Arch-Druidic, Priest-Princely families, to the Royal Picts of Scotland and the high kings of the Horse Lords of Dal Riada; through to the Elven dynasty of Pendragon and Avallon del Acqs, and down to a few pure bred families today.

[Dr] Kelly had contacts with two companies in the U.S.
One of the men he was in touch with was a former Russian defector, Kamovtjan
Alibekov. When he arrived in America, he changed his name to Ken Alibek. He
is now president of Hadron Advanced Biosystems -- a company specializing in
medicines against biological terrorist attacks. Kelly was himself considering
resigning from his senior post at the Ministry of Defense to work in America.
Before his death, he had been discreetly 'head-hunted' by two companies. One
was Hadron Advanced Biosystems, which has close ties to the Pentagon.
Hadron describes itself as "a company specializing in the development of
technical solutions for the U.S. intelligence community". Hadron also has
links to William Patrick, who has five classified patents on the process of
developing weaponized anthrax. He is a bio-warfare consultant to both the
Pentagon and the CIA.
The other company is Regma Biotechnologies -- one that Kelly helped its
founder, Vladimir Pasechnik, to set up in Britain, arranging for it to have a
laboratory at Porton Down, the country's chem-bio warfare defense establishment.
Regma currently has a contract with the U.S. Navy for "the diagnostic and
therapeutic treatment of anthrax".
Kelly had told family friends he wanted to go to America so that he could
obtain the specialized treatment his wife, Janice, requires. "He also felt
that working in the U.S. private sector would relieve him of the intense
pressures which came with his government work", said a colleague in the
Ministry of Defense.
The two American scientists he had worked with were Benito Que, 52, and Don
Wiley, 57. Both microbiologists had been engaged in DNA sequencing that could
provide "a genetic marker based on genetic profiling". The research could play
an important role in developing weaponized pathogens to hit selected groups of
humans -- identifying them by race. Two years ago, both men were found dead,
in circumstances never fully explained.
In November 2001, Que left his laboratory after receiving a telephone call.
Shortly afterward he was found comatose in the parking lot of the Miami Medical
School. He died without regaining consciousness.
Police said he had suffered a heart attack. His family insisted he had been in
perfect health and claimed four men attacked him. But, later, oddly, the
family inquest returned a verdict of death by natural causes.

A Hebrew University research team is reeling from the loss of their colleague Ilan Ramon and the stem cell experiment he took with him into space
Before Col. Ilan Ramon donned his space suit and entered the ill-fated Columbia shuttle on Thursday, January 16, he spent years training for his flight, preparing for life in space, and learning about the 79 scientific experiments he and his fellow crewmates would administer during their 16 days in space. When the space shuttle exploded last Saturday, that research was lost along with the astronauts.
The researchers had long been aware that astronauts suffer from osteoporosis after their return from space, suggesting that weightlessness affects bone density. The Columbia mission presented an opportunity for them to study that relationship more closely.
The scientists developed an experiment in which two batches of stem cells would be genetically manipulated concurrently to grow into bone cells: one to go aboard the space shuttle and the other to stay in Jerusalem. At the end of the mission, the two cultures would be analyzed and compared.
Stem cells can be manipulated to develop into any type of cell contained in the body, such as skin, fat, or nerve cells. In their experiments, the Hebrew University researchers are using adult human stem cells, not the controversial embryonic stem cells.
After obtaining the stem cells from bone marrow, the HU team genetically engineers them to grow into bone and other tissues. To date, the matured bone cells have only been implanted into lab rodents that can accept human cells. But the aim is to be able to inject them into humans to replace destroyed bone.
Because the stem cells can be culled from the same person that will eventually receive the regenerated bone, the technique avoids the complications of rejection that often plague recipients of current transplants. - Jarusalem Post
Are the Isrealis developing Ethnically Specific Bioweapons for Attack?
Or is a DEFENSE against genetically engineered race wars being sought?
The reported existence of the Israeli ethnic bullet will almost predictably trigger a gene weapons arms race in the Middle East. Worse still the research and development of such weapons can be carried out in amazingly small facilities that are next to impossible to monitor. Perhaps most ominously, the "science" of genetically specific bioweapons is still in its infancy and no one knows if breakthroughs might reduce the cost of their production to the point that small and extremely malevolent groups such as the neo-Nazis may attempt to bring about a new Final Solution.
- Genetic Bullets - Ethnically Specific Bioweapons By R. Roy Blake
While we are on the subject of Neo-Nazis...
After 60 years of inattention and even denial by the U.S. media, newly-uncovered government documents in The National Archives and Library of Congress reveal that Prescott Bush, the grandfather of President George W. Bush, served as a business partner of and U.S. banking operative for the financial architect of the Nazi war machine from 1926 until 1942, when Congress took aggressive action against Bush and his "enemy national" partners.
The documents also show that Bush and his colleagues, according to reports from the U.S. Department of the Treasury and FBI, tried to conceal their financial alliance with German industrialist Fritz Thyssen, a steel and coal baron who, beginning in the mid-1920s, personally funded Adolf Hitler's rise to power by the subversion of democratic principle and German law.

In Islamic tradition there are four winds, similar to "the four horsemen of Revelation' (Ch 6), "...And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand." The Black Wind may correlate with an example of the third seal in Revelation 6, or black horse, and may depict an intentional economic disaster as a direct result of a terrorist attack - "an economic implosion." Revelation 6 also reveals a symbolic "pair of balances" depicting a process of "weighing" or preservation - i.e., a separation of the good from the bad.
In Islam, the huayra yana is the black wind. In a symbolic sense, a black wind spreads similar to the act of throwing ashes into the air. The dust particles appear momentarily suspended then carried along by an invisible stream before dissipating and falling to the ground. In Islamic eschatology, hell is pictured as a desert, scorching wind, black smoke, and boiling, bubbling water. Hell is reserved for the enemies of Allah led by the Christian counterpart of the devil known as Eblis, who roams the Earth seeking those whom he may devour. Hell awaits the unbelievers where they will be cast into "scorching wind and shadow of black smoke," and will drink of boiling water for eternity. Hell is the most terrible of places where the wicked are cast in scorching fires to eat thorns and thistles.

many stories in the old testament are plagerised.
Example: Noah and the flood:
GILGAMESH IS FROM ANCIENT SUMER
Gilgamesh is one of the oldest recorded stories in the world. It tells the story of an ancient King of Uruk, Gilgamesh, who may have actually existed, and whose name is on the Sumerian King List. The story of Gilgamesh, in various Sumerian versions, was originally widely known in the third millennium B.C. After a long history of retellings, this story was recorded, in a standardized Akkadian version, in the seventh century B.C., and stored in the famous library of King Assurbanipal.
Later, the story of Gilgamesh was lost to human memory, except for occasional fragments. The story was rediscovered in the mid-nineteenth century A.D., and made available in translation to German by the beginning of the twentieth century. People were especially amazed when they read this most ancient of stories, and realized that the flood story in Gilgamesh was a close analogue of the flood story in the Hebrew Bible.
SUMER WAS IN MESOPOTAMIA
Mesopotamia was in the geographical area that is today called Iraq. The name we call it, "Mesopotamia," is actually Greek for "between two rivers." The two rivers were the Tigris and the Euphrates.
This, the eleventh tablet of the epic, describes the meeting of Gilgamesh with Utnapishtim. Like Noah in the Hebrew Bible, Utnapishtim had been forewarned of a plan by the gods to send a great flood. He built a boat and loaded it with everything he could find. Utnapishtim survived the flood for six days while mankind was destroyed, before landing on a mountain called Nimush. He released a dove and a swallow but they did not find dry land to rest on, and returned. Finally a raven that he released did not return, showing that the waters must have receded.
This Assyrian version of the Old Testament flood story was identified in 1872 by George Smith, an assistant in The British Museum. On reading the text he
jumped up and rushed about the room in a great state of excitement, and, to the astonishment of those present, began to undress himself.'
The Hanging Gardens of Babylon
On the east bank of the River Euphrates, about 50 km south of Baghdad, Iraq.
The Babylonian kingdom flourished under the rule of the famous King, Hammurabi (1792-1750 BC). It was not until the reign of Naboplashar (625-605 BC) of the Neo-Babylonian dynasty that the Mesopotamian civilization reached its ultimate glory. His son, Nebuchadnezzar II (604-562 BC) is credited for building the legendary Hanging Gardens. It is said that the Gardens were built by Nebuchadnezzar to please his wife or concubine who had been "brought up in Media and had a passion for mountain surroundings".
While the most descriptive accounts of the Gardens come from Greek historians such as Berossus and Diodorus Siculus, Babylonian records stay silent on the matter. Tablets from the time of Nebuchadnezzar do not have a single reference to the Hanging Gardens, although descriptions of his palace, the city of Babylon, and the walls are found. Even the historians who give detailed descriptions of the Hanging Gardens never saw them. Modern historians argue that when Alexander's soldiers reached the fertile land of Mesopotamia and saw Babylon, they were impressed. When they later returned to their rugged homeland, they had stories to tell about the amazing gardens and palm trees at Mesopotamia.. About the palace of Nebuchadnezzar.. About the Tower of Babel and the ziggurats. And it was the imagination of poets and ancient historians that blended all these elements together to produce one of the World Wonders.
It wasn't until the twentieth century that some of the mysteries surrounding the Hanging Gardens were revealed. Archaeologists are still struggling to gather enough evidence before reaching the final conclusions about the location of the Gardens, their irrigation system, and their true appearance. Some recent researchers even suggest that the Hanging Gardens were built by Senaherib, not by Nebuchadnezzar II (ca. 100 years earlier). - ce.eng.usf.edu

Clinging to their belief in the goodness and power of their gods and wondering about their sin and the toil and strife with which they lived, the Sumerians imagined a past in which people lived in a god-created paradise.
This was expressed in the same poetic tale that described the conflict between the king of Uruk and the distant town of Arrata - the earliest known description in writing of a paradise and the fall of humankind. The poem describes a period when there were no creatures that threatened people - no snakes, scorpions, hyenas, or lions - a period in which humans knew no terror.
There was no confusion among various peoples speaking different languages, with everyone praising the god Enlil in one language. Then, according to the poem, something happened that enraged the god Enki (the god of wisdom and water who had organized the earth in accordance with a general plan laid down by Enlil). The clay tablet on which the poem was written is damaged at this point, but the tablet indicates that Enki found some sort of inappropriate behavior among humans. Enki decided to put an end to the golden age, and in the place of the golden age came conflict, wars and a confusion of languages. - world history - The Ancient world

Super-spy Tom Cruise Outed Plame???
The science fiction content of Scientology is revealed to them after they have reached the state they call "Clear", meaning freed from the aberrations of the mind. However, perhaps "brainwashed" would be a more applicable word to describe the mental state of someone who has survived the near entire delusional contents of their subconscious mind brought to the surface and presented to them as "truth".
On the "advanced" levels (called OT levels) above the state of "Clear" they encounter the story of Xenu. Xenu was supposed to have gathered up all the overpopulation in this sector of the galaxy, brought them to Earth and then exterminated them using hydrogen bombs. The souls of these murdered people are then supposed to infest the body of everyone. They are called "body thetans".
On the advanced levels of Scientology a person "audits out" these body thetans telepathically by getting them to re-experience their being exterminated by hydrogen bombs. So people on these levels assume all their bad thoughts and faulty memories are due to these body thetans infesting every part of their body and influencing them mentally.

In 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, we are given a clear description of the rapture: "the dead in Christ will rise, then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord."
The rapture will occur prior to the beginning of the tribulation. This has been well researched and documented throughout the site. But, whether Jesus returns for the Church before, during, or after the tribulation, the primary goal is that all people are ready to face the Lord and give an account for their lives.
The sixth world starts in 2012?
1. Humanity and Planet Earth are currently going through a huge change or shift in consciousness and reality perception.
2. The Mayan civilization of Central America was and is the most advanced in relation to time-science knowledge. Their main calendar is the most accurate on the planet. It has never erred. They actually have 22 calendars in total, covering the many timing cycles in the Universe and Solar System. Some of these calendars are yet to be revealed.
3. The Mayan fifth world finished in 1987. The sixth world starts in 2012. So we are currently "between worlds". This time is called the "Apocalypse" or revealing. This means the real truth will be revealed. It is also the time for us to work through "our stuff" individually and collectively.
4. The Mayan sixth world is actually blank. This means it is up to us, as co-creators, to start creating the new world and civilization we want now.
5. The Mayans also say that by 2012-
- we will have gone beyond technology as we know it.
- we will have gone beyond time and money.
- we will have entered the fifth dimension after passing through the fourth dimension
- Planet Earth and the Solar System will come into galactic synchronization with the rest of the Universe.
- Our DNA will be "upgraded" (or reprogrammed) from the centre of our galaxy. (Hunab Ku)
"Everbody on this planet is mutating. Some are more conscious of it than others. But everyone is doing it" - Extraterrestrial Earth Mission.
6. In 2012 the plane of our Solar System will line up exactly with the plane of our Galaxy, the Milky Way. This cycle has taken 26,000 years to complete. Virgil Armstrong also says that two other galaxies will line up with ours at the same time. A cosmic event!
7. Time is actually speeding up (or collapsing). For thousands of years the Schumann Resonance or pulse (heartbeat) of Earth has been 7.83 cycles per second, The military have used this as a very reliable reference. However, since 1980 this resonance has been slowly rising. It is now over 12 cycles per second! This mean there is the equalivant of less than 16 hours per day instead of the old 24 hours. Another intrepetation is - we, or rather Consciousness have been down this same road seven times before over the last 16 billion years. Each of these cycles of Creation runs 20 times faster than the last one. The same amount of Creation is paced 20 times tighter. This is why time seems to be going so fast. It is not "time" but Creation itself that is accelerating.
8. During the Apocalypse or the time "between worlds" many people will be going through many personal changes. The changes will be many and varied. It is all part of what we came here to learn or experience. Examples of change could be- relationships coming to an end, change of residence or location, change of job or work, shift in attitude or thinking etc.
9. Remember, in any given moment we are making small and large decisions. Each decision is based on LOVE or FEAR. Choose love, follow your intuition, not intellect and follow your passion or "burning inner desire." Go with the flow.
10. Thought forms are very important and affect our everyday life. We create our reality with thought forms. If we think negative thoughts of others this is what we attract. If we think positive thoughts we will attract positive people and events. So be aware of your thoughts and eliminate the unnecessary negative or judgemental ones.
11. Be aware that most of the media is controlled by just a few. Use discernment! Look for the hidden agendas. Why is this information being presented to you? What is "their" real agenda? Is it a case of problemreactionsolution? Do "they" create a problem so that "we" react and ask for a fix, then "they" offer their solution? The "solution is what "they" really wanted in the first place.
12. Remember almost nothing happens by accident. Almost all "events" are planned by some agency or other. Despite this, it is a very exciting time to be alive!
SOME POSSIBLE EFFECTS OF THE CHANGES
* Migraine headaches, tiredness
* Electrical sensations in the limbs and spinal column
* Cramps in the muscular networks
* Flu like symptoms
* Intense dreams.
* The human body will become more sensitive as a result of the new vibrations.
* The resonance of Earth (Schumann Resonance) has been 7.8Hz for thousands of years. Since 1980 it has risen to over 12Hz.
This means that 16 hours now equate to a 24 hour day. Time is speeding up!
* The physical body has already begun to change. A new light body is being created.
* Our DNA is being re-programmed from the Universe (as predicted in the Mayan Prophecy).
We are going from 2 strand back to 12 strand DNA.
* Greater intuitive and healing abilities will emerge.
* Eyes will become cat like in order to adjust to the new atmosphere and light.
* All newly born children will probably be telepathic at birth.
* All plagues of the 90's, including AIDS will be gone.

The ultimate PSYOP through manipulation of emotional belief
NASA'S PROJECT BLUE BEAM by: Serge Monast - 1994 [caution - strange christian patriot viewpoint...]
PROJECT BLUE BEAM
AND THE NEW WORLD RELIGION
The "operation" is easy to EXPLAIN and REVEAL technologically.
"Holography, a technique for obtaining 3-dimensional images, involves an interference pattern between 2 sets of single-wavelength light waves.
A single laser beam is split into two parts, one to illuminate the object, the second part (called the reference beam) is reflected by a mirror.
The two beams meet forming an interference pattern, which is developed to form a hologram.
This hologram can be used to re-create a 3-dimensional image of the original object. According to a comprehensive report by Canadian investigative journalist, Serge Monast, entitled Project Blue Beam, this holographic technology used in conjunction with hi-tech, mind-control weapons utilizing the effects of radio-frequency waves upon the brain, is capable of projecting an image in the sky and causing collective thought to convince people they are seeing an alien invasion or the second coming of Christ. The Blue Beam Project will pretend to be the universal fulfillment of the prophecies of old."
"It involves two things. A technologically simulated "second coming" and the reemmrgence of new "MONTAUK" type projects that have the ability to take up a whole bunch of people as in a "rapture" type of situation and whisk the whole bunch into never-never land. Ironically, portions of the holographic projections have the potential for changing the planet into oneness with God. Unfortunately, this operates on the premise that Man shall somehow become God in human form and control other Men and dictate all actions and thoughts."

Indoctrination of the majority for the rapture
"At an unknown hour and day the Lord Jesus will descend from heaven, while remaining in the air, he will snatch his Bride, the Church, out from among this sinful world. Christ then takes the Church to heaven for the 7 year wedding feast. The earthly reason for the removal of the Church is to make way for the rise of Antichrist and to fulfill Daniel's final 70th week."
So, anyone who isn't a christian is DOOMED?
YEAH! REAL NICE!!!
Is total environmental control Reality designing?
Design has emerged as one of the world's most powerful forces. It has placed us at the beginning of a new, unprecedented period of human possibility, where all economies and ecologies are becoming global, relational, and interconnected.
In order to understand and harness these emerging forces, there is an urgent need to articulate precisely what we are doing to ourselves and to our world. This is the ambition of Massive Change.
Massive Change is a celebration of our global capacities but also a cautious look at our limitations. It encompasses the utopian and dystopian possibilities of this emerging world, in which even nature is no longer outside the reach of our manipulation.
For many of us, design is invisible. We live in a world that is so thoroughly configured by human effort that design has become second nature, ever-present, inevitable, taken for granted.
And yet, the power of design to transform and affect every aspect of daily life is gaining widespread public awareness.
No longer associated simply with objects and appearances, design is increasingly understood in a much wider sense as the human capacity to plan and produce desired outcomes. Engineered as an international discursive project, Massive Change: The Future of Global Design, will map the new capacity, power and promise of design. massive change
What is quantum computation?
A fundamentally new mode of information processing that can be performed only by harnessing physical phenomena unique to quantum mechanics (especially quantum interference).
What is quantum mechanics?
The deepest theory of physics; the framework within which all other current theories, except the general theory of relativity, are formulated. Some of its features are:
Quantisation (which means that observable quantities do not vary continuously but come in discrete chunks or 'quanta'). This is the one that makes computation, classical or quantum, possible at all.
Interference (which means that the outcome of a quantum process in general depends on all the possible histories of that process). This is the one that makes quantum computers qualitatively more powerful than classical ones.
Entanglement (Two spatially separated and non-interacting quantum systems that have interacted in the past may still have some locally inaccessible information in common - information which cannot be accessed in any experiment performed on either of them alone.) This is the one that makes quantum cryptography possible.
What's all this about parallel universes?
If you only want to predict what quantum computers will be able to do, you only need the equations of quantum mechanics. But if you want to explain how they will do it, you need to understand that the computer you can see and touch is only one tiny facet of a far larger object, which is just as real even though its existence is only detectable indirectly, through the computational work it does for us. The best way to describe the structure of a quantum computer is not at present clear, but in some respects it is like many computers similar to the one we see, performing different but correlated computations which affect each other through quantum interference.
In quantum computers, the effects of quantum interference are writ large. But the theory says that the whole of reality behaves in the same way. So the whole universe that we see around us is full of a subtle inner structure. This all-pervasive property is felt by some physicists to be best described as a multiverse, which contains many universes like ours, interacting only through quantum interference.
What will quantum computers be good at?
These are the most important applications currently known:
Cryptography: perfectly secure communication.
Searching, especially algorithmic searching (Grover's algorithm).
Factorising large numbers very rapidly (Shor's algorithm).
Simulating quantum-mechanical systems efficiently.

"O My servants! Sorrow not if, in these days and on this earthly plane, things contrary to your wishes have been ordained and manifested by God, for days of blissful joy, of heavenly delight, are assuredly in store for you. Worlds, holy and spiritually glorious, will be unveiled to your eyes. You are destined by Him, in this world and hereafter, to partake of their benefits, to share in their joys, and to obtain a portion of their sustaining grace. To each and every one of them you will, no doubt, attain." (Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá'u'lláh, CLIII, p329)
Common Grounds between Buddhism, Quantum Physics, and the Baha'i Faith
Some "common grounds" exist among Buddhist, quantum physics and Bahá'í Faith concepts. Buddhist ideas on the Omniscient One, the Universal Mind, the Absolute, the Ultimate Reality and the "Empty Void" encompass how they see reality. Such Buddhist concepts do not conflict with quantum physics nor the Bahá'í Faith.
The heart of all religions is the relationship of the individual with Ultimate Reality. For centuries no concept of God or Creator existed in Buddhism with the same meaning as in most Western religions. According to Buddhism, Ultimate Reality is viewed as "Empty Void.". This idea of the "Empty Void" is a rich and productive one conveying an extensive variety of meanings. There are some interesting relationships between these Buddhist ideas and concepts in quantum physics and the Bahá'í Faith. - bahai-library.com
There are scientists who say that technological progress will accelerate indefinitely, causing a mind-boggling change in the basic principles of what we humans affectionately call 'home'. It is a well-known fact among Singularitarians that this event, known as the Singularity1, will occur sometime before the year 2100.
- The Vingean Singularity
Within thirty years, we will have the technological means to create superhuman intelligence. Shortly after, the human era will be ended. Is such progress avoidable? If not to be avoided, can events be guided so that we may survive?
The acceleration of technological progress has been the central feature of this century. [...] we are on the edge of change comparable to the rise of human life on Earth. The precise cause of this change is the imminent creation by technology of entities with greater than human intelligence.
There are several means by which science may achieve this breakthrough (and this is another reason for having confidence that the event will occur): There may be developed computers that are "awake" and superhumanly intelligent. (To date, there has been much controversy as to whether we can create human equivalence in a machine. But if the answer is "yes, we can", then there is little doubt that beings more intelligent can be constructed shortly thereafter.)
Large computer networks (and their associated users) may "wake up" as a superhumanly intelligent entity. Computer/human interfaces may become so intimate that users may reasonably be considered superhumanly intelligent. Biological science may provide means to improve natural human intellect.
Vinge, Vernor: The Singularity
Is this a form of Neo-Eugenics?
...are such things as death and ageing being asserted as a 'weakness'...?
Without death their is no contemplation of any end...or indeed a journey beyond
without 'lack of knowledge' their can be no learning...
The eradication of learning will lead to only necessary data being
automatically programmed to serve a hive mentality
how can they really assert what intelligence is?
Doesn't this really make these idiots appear a bit, well , arrogant...& er stupid...
It can be argued that trans-humanism is a form of neo futurism. Futurism being that artistic movement of the early 20th century which glorified the machine age and saw war and it's transformation into a mechanized indiscriminate tool of killing as a logical evolutionary step.
This neo futurism sees humans evolving to the point known as 'singularity'. This is the complete blurring of human and machine. It is neither artificial intelligence nor Human bio-machinery, but somehow both, simultaneously. It is said to the fateful day in the future when humans as we know them cease to be.
Now, here's a question. Should human evolution be mapped out like this?
Does it not cease to be evolution?
Doesn't this start to sound like a plan?
from: Art is like Santa Claus - Difficult to believe in [captain wardrobe - August 2004]
Do we have collusion between 'Politicized' Religions
to engineer 'The End Times'
Are these nuts fixing events around Prophesy in a similar manner
to fixing intelligence around Foreign policy???
Is the Singularity actually a technocratic version of the Rapture?
Will 'a planned technocratic evolution' see
the eventual uploading of all Human consciousness
into a mainframe computer called GOD?
Are these fascists making a God, in order to prove it exists?
The Trans rapture:
Among those who see possible radical evolutions in the near human future, there are those who view the coming changes as a big win for human engineering and there are those who see it as a gnosis, as the achievement of a sort of religious divinity.
Artificial Personalities To Populate Virtual World
A fascinating experiment into personality and social interaction in which millions of software agents will potentially evolve their own culture is about to be switched on by five European research institutes. The NEW TIES project will be a virtual world populated by randomly generated software beings, capable of developing their own language and society.
The project has brought together AI experts, computer scientists, sociologists and linguists to study natural processes (like language development), and to advance the construction of collective artificial intelligence. "While individual, or machine, learning and evolutionary behavior have been quite well studied, social learning is still an unknown quantity," says project coordinator Gusz Eiben, an AI professor at the Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam. "For the linguists and sociologists, the main motivation is to study existing processes in societies and languages. The computer scientists on the other hand want to develop and study machine collaboration, with an eye on future applications in robotics," he added.
The NEW TIES world will initially be running across a grid of 60 computers. The virtual world will support about 1,000 agents (artificial personalities) at first, building eventually to millions - each one a unique entity with its own characteristics, including gender, life expectancy, fertility, size, and metabolism. The agents will each have their own distinguishing characteristics to make them recognizable. Some of their traits will be inherited from their parents, and passed on to their offspring, but they will also be able to learn from their own experiences and from each other.
"We are not hardwiring agents," stresses Eiben. "We are not programming how they behave. Each entity has its own 'controller,' analogous to a brain. And because we want to create an interesting controller, we have to produce a challenging world - otherwise there would be no impetus for development. So, in one scenario, we have created a world with seasons - so that the agents have to learn to find, transport and store food. And there are two rival groups, so they will have to learn to tell friend from foe."
The artificial life-forms will have the ability to communicate, using a native vocabulary of a few simple words like, 'food', 'near', and 'agent'. "One interesting question is how they will communicate," says Eiben. "Naturally, the linguists want to see how they develop a spoken language, but for the AI researchers we will also test to see if there are possible alternatives - telepathy, for example." Some basic rules will also be given, along the lines of, "if it's hot, it burns," but the agents are expected to add to the rule set as they discover new laws of nature.
Eiben said he hoped to eventually scale the world up to 5,000 computers, supporting a much larger population of agents, which he believes will kick-start complex emergent behaviors. Until then, he points to some intriguing results obtained from other platforms. His own findings have established that aggressive behavior increases in agent-worlds as life becomes easier, while an ideal world (ideal meaning maximum survival) has two main attributes: flexibility and mobility.
The project team is also working on a state-of-the-art visualization for its interface, to make its agents more comprehensible to a public well versed in The Sims and other computer realities.

divide & rule - ET & the second coming
The red Book is a human compendium of information derived from the extraterrestrials. One of the predictions is that there will be a very large rift in human society as a result of ET contact becoming publicly known. This is supposed to happen in 1997. Another reported prediction is that the ETs will return in a formal preplanned landing on April 24, 1997 on public land in the Southwest USA, probably in the vicinity of White Sands "Missile" Range, New Mexico.
The red and Yellow Books are also supposed to contain the prediction that there is one "Horseman of the Apocalypse" left to arrive. (The other three, War, Famine and Pestilence have inarguably already arrived on Earth.) The remaining Horseman is the White Rider wearing the Crown, which is interpreted to mean the Second Coming. This raises profound questions and concerns within the Aviary. Does this mean that a formal ET landing in 1997 signifies, or is, the Second Coming of the Christ? Will the ETs be bearing an ET with Christ Consciousness? Will fundamentalist Christians against the ETs as supposed threats to Christ's supremacy? Et cetera.
The Aviary are quite concerned that fundamentalist Christians will experience spiritual, if not ontological, shock at the revelation of ET visitation, and over the reported contents of the Red and Yellow Books, which contain information that suggests that Jesus had some connection with the extraterrestrials.
Adding more fuel to Aviary concerns, BT reports that a European television station reported that vatican experts on the Fatima Prophecies held a reported briefing for government representatives from the UK, France, Germany and the U.S., concerning the third remaining publicly-unannounced Prophecy. This Prophecy is rumored to deal with ET Visitation. A spokesman for the Vatican reportedly confirmed that such a briefing took place.
