“They said there'll be snow at Christmas

They said there'll be peace on Earth

But instead it just kept on raining

A veil of tears for the Virgin's birth
I remember one Christmas morning
A winters light and a distant choir

And the peal of a bell and that Christmas Tree smell

And their eyes full of tinsel and fire

They sold me a dream of Christmas

They sold me a Silent Night
And they told me a fairy story
'Till I believed in the Israelite
And I believed in Father Christmas
And I looked at the sky with excited eyes

'Till I woke with a yawn in the first light of dawn
And I saw him and through his disguise

I wish you a hopeful Christmas

I wish you a brave New Year
All anguish pain and sadness

Leave your heart and let your road be clear
They said there'll be snow at Christmas

They said there'll be peace on Earth

Hallelujah Noel be it Heaven or Hell

The Christmas you get you deserve.”

"The picture that is shaping up is that Christchurch is being used as a state-of-the-art experimental laboratory for all the new ‘non-lethal weapons’ technologies that have come on-line in recent years, not only for ‘testing’ but to clear the people out of the way for resource extraction and the transformation of Canterbury into a New World Order stepping-stone to Antarctica."



25 DECEMBER 2011

Greetings from Fiordland in the deep south of New Zealand. We’ve been here less than 24 hours after spending three full-on days in Christchurch, where we’d arrived just before the solstice after flying from Melbourne. We were near the (former) cbd of Christchurch for the twin quakes of 23 December (5.8@1:58pm/6.0@3:18pm) and personally experienced them as much as anyone would have; significantly, over the 24 hours or so before the quakes we were observing and cataloging “atmospheric anomalies” which are associated with man-made earth-quakes. During the several hours of the morning of the 23rd and right up to the quakes themselves, we were photographing massive chem-trail spraying directly over the epi-centres as well as oily “stain-bow” clouds in front of the sun. During this same 24 hour period we also experienced the bodily sensations of radio-frequency weapons systems being activated or amplified, which includes feelings of uneasiness, head-aches, agitation, being drained energetically, and a sense that ‘something is very wrong’ with the local environment in general.

The ‘coincidence levels’ were heightened by two phone conversations I happened to be in the middle of precisely when the two quakes occurred. When the first quake struck I was talking with Iain Kerr, the CEO of Ocean Alliance, a Massachusetts-based organization founded by Dr. Roger Payne, the paragon of whale-researchers; I rang Iain when I discovered that Payne happened to be in Christchurch and I wanted to make contact.

When the second quake struck I was talking with Christchurch equestrian-turned-activist Penny Hargreaves about the earlier quake; we’d spent several hours with her the day before discussing her on-going research and activism relating to the reality of ‘technetronic’ (the ‘new generation’ of geophysical weapons based on electronic ‘Tesla technologies’ that have rendered ‘traditional’ atomic weapons obsolete) warfare, the negative health effects she’s endured on herself and her horses due to radio frequency emanations from transmitters near her farm, and the connection between localized earth-quake damage, the transmission beams from these antennas, and numerous other anomalous phenomenon surrounding the Christchurch earthquake scenario, many of which I’ve described in my ‘geo-terrorism’ postings over the past few months.

As you may or not be aware, depending on how well you know us, in recent months humanity’s war on the Earth and on ourselves as a whole has seldom been off our personal ‘radar screens’, not even on remote islands or isolated mountain-tops. We’ve come to see that what we vainly refer to as ‘civilization’ is actually NOT how the vast majority of people live or have lived on this planet, now or in the history of homo sapiens; industrial civilization is fundamentally a product of human geo-engineering which is little more than an acceptable-sounding euphemism for the all-out full-spectrum war we have been conducting against the Earth, and therefore against ourselves and life-as-we-know-her, for the past 5000 years.

This posting is by no means an in-depth look at what is happening; this will come later as we have time to get our feet on the ground in Aotearoa. I am working on my first ‘geo-terrorism update’ since July, including information concerning the on-going contamination of the planetary biosphere from Fukushima radio-activity, especially the Pacific ocean. This whole scenario, by FAR the greatest anthropogenic ‘disaster event’ ever to occur on this planet in recent aeons (the Atlanteans emulated Fukushima at least once, but details are hard to come by; the radio-biological implications of Fukushima dwarf chem-trails, GMO’s, endocrine disrupting chemicals and pharmaceutical drugs put together), has become almost totally invisible on all mainstream media; even in the few alternative media who strive to keep awareness alive, mis- and/or dis-information is rampant, due to both scientific ignorance and the fact that all ‘official’ and almost all ‘environmental’ organizations either work directly for or have been co-opted by the elite power-brokers who control international banking (and therefore all money everywhere), the Pentagon, the president, and ‘all things nuclear.’ The result is that when you see a largish-sounding number representing how much radiation has been released from Fukushima, you can be sure that the REAL figure would have between three and 12 additional zeroes, to the left of the decimal point, regardless of the unit of measurement in use.

I was disturbed by Dr. Roger Payne’s recent “letter to humanity” describing Ocean Alliance’s on-going work to map chemical toxicity of the global ocean towards “saving the whales.” I find it difficult to understand why a scientist of Payne’s calibre would totally omit any mention whatsoever of the immense levels of radio-nuclides spreading throughout the terrestrial and aquatic biospheres of the Earth from Fukushima as constituting MAJOR threats to the health of all oceanic life-forms. Nor has Payne or Ocean Alliance ever made any reference to the on-going threats to cetaceans and all marine life-forms from the activities of the U.S. Navy, which include LFA-sonar, which explodes the inner ear of whales; disposal of highly toxic/radio-active wastes anywhere with no environmental over-sight; weapons testing and ‘war games’ all over the world; and, most interestingly, the fact that the U.S. Navy is the prime owner-operator of the H.A.A.R.P. installation in Alaska, which is the single largest and most powerful of the 20+ known ‘technetronic’ weapons facilities on the planet.

Payne does, however, mention that the (clearly evil) Japanese whaling fleet is, yes, once again returning to the Southern Ocean…with a massive military escort this time (it's ok to mention Japanese military stuff 'cause it's evil, you see, as opposed to American military stuff that's, well, "good")…and lets us know, just in case we might feel like donating some hard-earned money, that our old friend Captain Paul Watson, a.k.a. Sea Shepherd, will be there, as usual, for the filming of yet another season of Whale Wars, a lucrative ‘reality tv’ project selling a lot of Coca-cola and run by Discovery Communications, who also happens to host the Military Channel. Are you getting the picture now: Watson is a Coast Guard employee, just like Adm. Thad Allen, U.S. 'national incident commander' for both Katrina and BP-Gulf disaster; Psihoyos from National Geographic, a very 'right wing' publication supporting nuclear power and the 'war on terrorism'; Payne was a fellow at Rockefeller Uninversity for many years.

I have already documented at length the fraudulent activities that Sea Shepherd has been involved with, for example, the sinking of their own boat, the Ady Gil, whose skipper, kiwi Pete Bethune, testified in New Zealand maritime court that Captain Watson ordered him to sink his own boat…because it would be ‘great publicity”! Watson, who I used to believe in, has proven himself to be a misanthropic supporter of UN/NWO agendas, “radical reduction in the human population” and an architect/participant of on-going media fraud, all in the interest of obtaining donations for his non-profit ‘environmental’ organization and diverting public attention from more serious issues. Sure, whaling is barbaric but the reality is that the U.S Navy constitutes an astronomically greater threat to the health of ALL cetaceans, ALL marine life than does the (clearly evil) Japanese whaling fleet, who, even if allowed to proceed with their grisly task unimpeded, might kill a few hundred or thousand whales, whereas the Navy has been granted a permit to ‘take’ over 11 million marine mammals over the next five years. Correct me if I’m wrong, but 11 million is a lot more than a few thousand, right? And this is what they’ve been legally allowed to do, which is only a tiny % of the real impact.

Radiological contamination of the world’s oceans and the destructive activities of the U.S. Navy…which includes ‘technetronic’ warfare affecting all continents and all human populations, specifically and most recently, Christchurch, New Zealand…are not allowed to be discussed by mainstream media or ‘environmental’ organizations, but ‘reality tv’ fraud is openly supported. As I see it, the ‘reality tv’ of Sea Shepherd (and the Japanese ‘whalers’ would be complicit ‘actors’ as well), as well as the activities of Louis Psihoyos, director of ‘The Cove’ (also replete with Japanese ‘bad guy’ actors), and former photographer for National Geographic, serve primarily to distract the ‘sheeple’ population from the real issues, and substitute entertainment masquerading as ‘public education’ to give genuinely caring…but chronically ignorant…people a sense that they know what is going on and are helping to ‘fund’ some ‘environmental activism’, while never questioning the ‘elephant in the living room’ of the U.S. Navy, who is a greater threat by a factor of millions than all other dangers combined! Excuse me, but do ANY of them even bother to mention the whales themselves any more?

Forgive my digression here; this is supposed to be a ‘short version’ Christmas Day posting acknowledging the recent Christchurch quakes, our presence there, and our commitment to helping the people of Christchurch, New Zealand, and planet Earth.

I have to admit, however, that our patience is wearing thin with ‘the people.’ I’ve been hard at this ‘information activism’ thing for decades; indigenous elders from around the world have been trying to inspire ‘civilized people’ to wake up and mend their ways for decades as well. It’s not that we don’t know what to do…or what to stop doing; it’s bringing ourselves actually to do..or stop doing…these things.

Few people are able to get the connection between the stupid and destructive ways in which we continue to “live” (I have a problem with this word, as what we are doing does not really qualify as ‘living’, in the same way that many of us could not truly be classified as ‘people’ in the sense of what it’s meant to be a person for the past few hundred thousand years), in which we over-consume and waste resources, subsidize the murder of our fellow beings, and literally pay for our own elimination…and the increasingly obvious ways in which our most advanced weapons systems are being turned on ourselves. All this can be explained scientifically, spiritually, logically, pragmatically. It’s not “them” who’s doing it all…it’s US.

How much more evidence do people need to motivate them to see what is happening with respect to the man-made earthquake scenario? Is it not obvious that these recent quakes were intended to be acts of ‘geo-terrorism’, of psychological warfare, to disrupt people right in the middle of Christmas shopping (the true ‘spirit of Christmas’…not ‘giving’ but ‘supporting commerce’), just as they were gettng comfortable again after 6 months of calm, and right before what is probably the only day of the year when families are gathered together?

“Right”, unbelievers will say, “so the Earth can’t have natural quakes any more? New Zealand just so happens to be right on a tectonic rift.”

To which I respond, “Sure, bro. Until last September geologists always said that Canterbury was THE most seismically stable region of New Zealand. International officials from the highest levels have been touting ‘tectonic warfare’ for years; a cadre of highly-placed American “terrorism management” officials were present in Christchurch for the February quake. We have personally documented the ‘signature’ phenomenon of man-made quakes TWICE, and BEFORE they occurred, in Melbourne in June and in Christchurch in December, not to mention the same atmospheric and energetic ‘signatures’ over Great Barrier Island DURING the June Christchurch quakes. What do you say to that?"

"Uh, Osama must have been resurrected and he has a wicked new laptop with technetronic warfare software...a Mac, for sure!"

Honestly, I’m not sure how much more of a chance ‘the people’ are going to get. If they…WE…haven’t taken the hint by now, when IS it going to happen? I am almost to the point of saying that I’m not actually doing any of this ‘information activism’ on behalf of human ‘people’ any more…humans masquerading as ‘people’ have had their chance and it’s probably a done deal already…it’s only a matter of time until humans are a thing of the past. Most ‘people’ can’t even be bothered to care about what we relate, much less to research anything for themselves. But when it comes to, for example, some sport, some eating out, some holidaying, some investing of money to gain massive profits, checking into Facebook…EVERYONE has time for that! But researching the reality of man-made earth-quakes…or how the Fukushima ‘problem’ is NOT ‘solved’ but only gathering (radio-active) steam…forget it!

I think the reason I persist with all these attempts at ‘creating awareness’ is for the sake of all the non-human life-forms who continue to suffer and die because of human stupidity.
I would have to say that Penny Hargreaves is New Zealand’s biggest true ‘hero’ in terms not only of doing lots of hard work to understand the nature of strange things that have happened to her, but also in DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT. I will go into much greater detail in my ‘geo-terrorism’ update in a few days; Penny came under attack from radio frequency emanations on her farm around 1996, which coincidentally is the year that H.A.A.R.P. became operational.

She determined that radio transmissions emanating from towers near her farm had been at levels that were hundreds or thousands of times greater than those allowed by law, and that these were the cause of the negative health effects she and her animals were experiencing. Further, with the advent of the Christchurch earthquake scenario, she has determined that the regions where the transmission beams from these antennae cross are the same exact regions where the earthquake damage is greatest. The ownership of these transmitters can be traced to Clear Channel Communications, owned by Texans named Mays; it was recently transferred to an investment group but the Mays people remain on the board. I haven’t had time to do much research into it all yet, but apparently the Mays family has ties to the U.S. ‘terrorism’ bureaucracy AND is believed to be utilizing “silent sound spread spectrum” technologies in its broadcast transmissions. This technology allows “inaudible subliminal information” to be disseminated via its broadcasts in any media.

Hargreaves' evidence suggests that several different experimental technetronic scenarios may be under way in the Christchurch area at this time.
I won’t go into more detail here, but the picture that is shaping up is that Christchurch is being used as a state-of-the-art experimental laboratory for all the new ‘non-lethal weapons’ technologies that have come on-line in recent years, not only for ‘testing’ but to clear the people out of the way for resource extraction and the transformation of Canterbury into a New World Order stepping-stone to Antarctica, which is the only ‘land’ to exist at polar latitudes, allowing direct access to the magnetic fields for technetronic weapons as well as to the vast untapped mineral wealth beneath the ice cap.

I’ve written about this before, and will go into greater detail in future postings, but the “ultimate” uses of technetronic weapons speculated on so far that I am aware of involve “triggering instabilities on the sun” and “debilitating the mental processes of human populations over large geographical regions.”

Because these speculations date from the mid-1960’s, I would say that there’s a very good chance that these things are already happening. With H.A.A.R.P. Phase 2 coming on-line in 2006 with power levels on the order of hundreds of billions of watts, I think it would be possible to create some kind of energetic ‘feed-back loop’ with the sun; the energy from this loop could be constantly circulated through the H.A.A.R.P./technetronic network and modulated as if it were a cyclotron. The effect would be to add energy into the planetary “resonant cavity” and/or man-made electrical grid…energy whose presence would exert behavioural effects on land-based life in particular, energy that could be focused or triggered when an ‘event’ was required.

Be aware that Zbigniew Brzezinski, chief foreign policy advisor to Obama’s White House, is a huge fan of Yale neuroscientist Jose Delgado, who pioneered radio-frequency brain control, and who believes that ‘people’ have no right to think for themselves…that the ‘elite’ should do the thinking on their behalf.

So…the next time there’s an earth-quake preceded by oily ‘stain-bows’ around the sun, strange cloud formations, massive chem-trail spraying and feelings of uneasiness and distress, just go to your Facebook page and ‘like’ Big Brother…because YOU LOVE HIM.

Have a MERRY CHRISTMAS…and think of the 60+ billion animals who are slaughtered for meat annually, and the hundreds of millions of fellow human beings who have been murdered over the past few hundred years just so that we can be here now, eating, drinking, consuming.

Anyone who thinks “peace on Earth” is even a remote possibility while homo sapiens still exists in its present form already LOVES BIG BROTHER.

"HEROES OF 'BALARNIA'" Jeff Phillips & Liesbet Verstraeten on Flinders Island Tasmania


In July of 2011 we returned to ‘Balarnia’, a remote property on the north-west coast of Flinders Island, which is about half-way between Tasmania and Victoria. Our friend Arni ‘Balarni’ Erikson has lived here since 1985. We spent about six weeks there in the summer of 2009, and had greatly looked forward to returning, and hopefully being there long enough to grow some of our own vegetables. This time we were able to stay just about four months, every day of which we got up around 5:30am, worked harder than we’ve ever worked in our lives doing landscaping, gardening, carpentry, and several kinds of artistic projects, exploring the wild beauty of the island, and getting more deeply in tune with the “heart of the Earth” and the dream-time ancestors than ever before. And we were eating broccoli, silver-beet, pipe onions, parsnips, carrots, beet-root and assorted salads that we had grown!

Our times at Arni’s have been inspired and inspiring from many sources, from the sheer undisrupted power of the land to the presence and guidance of the ancestors, to the whales and dolphins. And at the human level, knowledge and awareness of several people (real people, dating from the ‘good old days’ when people were people) whose lives, work and message we felt to be testaments of profound significance with respect to existing as human beings, to what it means to be “people.” We think of them as our “heroes of ‘Balarnia.’

During our visit in 2009 I found an old copy of the first edition of Rachel Carson’s legendary book Silent Spring, from 1963. I’d been aware of her message and influence for decades but had never read the book in toto; primed from intensive environmental activism in New Zealand in previous months centered around the use of dangerous pesticides like 1080, I recognized her revelations as genuine ‘prophecy’ of the global toxicity which is the legacy of our generation. Because of her love of life and nature, in particular, her connection with the sea, as well as her warnings of devastation from chemical poisoning and our retreat into ‘artificial reality’, Carson became our first “hero of ‘Balarnia.’ Our film “The Chronicles of Balarnia” was dedicated to her.

After becoming familiar with Arni’s on-going construction methodology, we began to sense a connection with Friedrich Hundertwasser, the Austrian/Kiwi painter/architect/eco-philosopher whose “Dr. Seuss apartment buildings” enliven western European city-scapes, as well as with fellow Tasmanian Bill Mollison, who founded ‘permaculture’, a paradigm of landscape and garden design based on principles of ecological, agricultural and horticultural harmony. Liesbet and I decided that ‘Balarnia’ was an example of ‘semi-permaculture’, in that everything worked together pretty well, yet according to Arni himself, the buildings are not meant to be there in a hundred years.

During our visit this year several more people became “heroes” as well due to the power of our connection with their stories and contributions, which we are able to share largely through the media of books and films. One of the very first things we did upon arriving at ‘Balarnia’ this time was to construct a stone medicine wheel. This one, our eighth (our first was at ‘Balarnia’ in 2009, in a different location), entered a new dimension with the addition of a Djed pillar in the centre. My dear friend Moira Timms, author of Beyond Prophecies and Predictions, has translated Egyptian hieroglyphics for me over the years and educated me concerning the essence of the positive spiritual aspect of ancient Egyptian cosmology.

Oglala-Lakota medicine man Black Elk inspired us deeply with his vision of the “mending of the sacred hoop” and the insidious “wasichu” mentality; writer/anarchist Edward Abbey, author of Desert Solitaire, inspired us equally with his journals of life in the southwest “red rock” desert of North America, his acerbic philosophy and witty diatribes targeting consumer society, “industrial tourism” and “civilization” as a whole.

Another connection we felt was with Findhorn, originally an alternative “spiritual” community founded in northern Scotland, where Dorothy MacLean learned to communicate harmoniously with the local “nature devas”, or so the story goes, setting the stage for miraculous feats of horticulture, like 40 pound cabbages and 8 foot holly-hocks and delphiniums.

British writer/philosopher Olaf Stapledon, author of Star-maker, took us on the largest-scale and most highly imaginative cosmic journeys that the English language has yet been capable of; his visions of “stellar” or “galactic” intelligence ring of reality far more than they do of fancy, especially as we glimpsed the ‘Hunab Ku’, the Mayan name for the centre of our galaxy, at the zenith as dusk drew near on winter nights.

We have to thank our friends Peter and Rosie for taking us to the William Ricketts Sanctuary in the Dandenongs, east of Melbourne, after we arrived in Australia in June. I’d heard of his work for many years but had never been there. He was a visionary sculptor who spent many years living with aboriginal peoples in the central desert. In his later years he lived in what was to become a bird sanctuary, and created dozens of life-size three-dimensional representations of real aboriginal people blending with or emerging from rocks, plants, tree, the Earth herself. Liesbet and I were blown away at the power and beauty of his work, and at the living presence of the people he sculpted. He was a deeply spiritual person whose goal was to make the (predominantly racist) Australian people keenly aware of who the aborigines truly are as the “real people.”

In my mind William Ricketts was very much of a modern-day William Blake, who was an Irish visionary poet/painter/engraver and political activist who never acceded to the “Crown” and voluntarily lived on the edge of poverty on the fringe of ‘society.’ Blake was hardly recognized in his time but today is regarded as one of the pre-eminent forces of English literature. He saw through the illusions of church and state, and believed that true art was not possible if money was involved.

Moira Timms is a very dear friend living in Oregon now, and I got to meet Bill Mollison once about ten years ago; they both have at least one painted rock of mine.

Our other “heroes” have crossed the great divide into alternity, as we all do sooner or later. We extend our thanks to all these very special people for what they accomplished during the nano-second of cosmic time we call a “life” and for leaving legacies of what being human can truly mean.

Finally, we must thank our biggest 'Balarnia' hero of all, Arni Erikson himself! THANKS ARNI for being one of the most wonderful people we know, for having us at your very special place, and for giving us the freedom to do whatever we wanted...SUCH a unique opportunity to go crazy with honour of the freedom to create, independent thought and Mother Earth.

For more information on our human “heroes of ‘Balarnia’” check out:


"Contemplating the teeming life of the shore, we have an uneasy sense of the communication of some universal truth that lies just beyond our grasp. What is the message signalled by the hordes of diatoms, flashing their microscopic lights in the night sea?"

"The most alarming of all man's assaults upon the environment is the contamination of air, earth, rivers, and sea with dangerous and even lethal materials. This pollution is for the most part irrecoverable; the chain of evil it initiates not only in the world that must support life but in living tissues is for the most part irreversible. In this now universal contamination of the environment, chemicals are the sinister and little-recognized partners of radiation in changing the very nature of the world—the very nature of its life."

“A tree can be cut in five minutes, but needs years to grow. That’s the difference between technocratic destruction and ecological evolution.”

“It is madness to part of a merciless competition running amok straight into a fatal illusion into the deadlock of economic growth. Our technical achievement must match our creative responsibility; we are far behind, unfortunately. We cannot think as fast as we use more and more dangerous tools. Genetic engineering violates the laws of nature in complete ignorance of the function of beauty, in all manifestations of creation. This short-sighted contempt of the beauty and inter-woven variety triggers the suicide of humanity. Because the so-called unnecessary beauty is essential for the survial of this Earth. Little to nothing is done to counteract the visual pollution which is the most dangerous of all pollutions, because it kills the soul. As we are now reaching the limits of growth, only decentralization, reflection, and slowing down in harmony with nature can save us. If you reach an abyss, only a step back can save you.”



"...the greatest change we need to make is from consumption to production, even if on a small scale, in our own gardens. If only 10% of us do this, there is enough for everyone. Hence the futility of revolutionaries who have no gardens, who depend on the very system they attack, and who produce words and bullets, not food and shelter."

"Though the problems of the world are increasingly complex, the solutions remain embarrassingly simple"

“. . . every society that grows extensive lawns could produce all its food on the same area, using the same resources, and . . . world famine could be totally relieved if we devoted the same resources of lawn culture to food culture in poor areas. These facts are before us. Thus, we can look at lawns, like double garages and large guard dogs, [and Humvees and SUVs] as a badge of willful waste, conspicuous consumption, and lack of care for the earth or its people."

“Order is found in things working beneficially together. It is not the forced condition of neatness, tidiness, and straightness, all of which are, in design or energy terms, disordered. True order may lie in apparent confusion . . Thus the seemingly-wild and naturally-functioning garden of a New Guinea villager is beautifully ordered and in harmony, while the clipped lawns and pruned roses of the pseudo-aristocrat are nature in wild disarray. Neatness, tidiness, uniformity, and straightness signify an energy-maintained disorder in natural systems.”



“…the seven seals are allegorical to each of the seven chakras (energy centers, like valves between the etheric and physical bodies, which are related to the endrocrine system) of the human body. With the opening of each seal comes “revelation” and the opportunity to be purified and transformed by the particular energies released. The more successful we are in handling and transmuting within ourselves (i.e., within each chakra) the intense surge of purifying energy released by the opening of each seal, the less necessary it is for these releases to manifest in the external world as chaos and catastrophe.”


“Later I learned too that Pahuska [General Custer] had found there much of the yellow metal that makes the Washichu crazy; and that is what made the bad trouble, just as it did before, when the hundred were wiped out. Our people knew there was yellow metal in little chunks up there; but they did not bother with it, because it was not good for anything." "And I say the sacred hoop of my people was one of the many hoops that made one circle, wide as daylight and as starlight, and in the center grew one mighty flowering tree to shelter all the children of one mother and one father."


“Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread. A civilization which destroys what little remains of the wild, the spare, the original, is cutting itself off from its origins and betraying the principle of civilization itself.”

“A man could be a lover and defender of the wilderness without ever in his lifetime leaving the boundaries of asphalt, powerlines, and right-angled surfaces. We need wilderness whether or not we ever set foot in it. We need a refuge even though we may never need to set foot in it. We need the possibility of escape as surely as we need hope; without it the life of the cities would drive all men into crime or drugs or psychoanalysis.”

“The love of wilderness is more than a hunger for what is always beyong reach; it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth, the earth which bore us and sustains us, the only paradise we shall ever know, the only paradise we ever need, if only we had the eyes to see.”

“Men come and go, cities rise and fall, whole civilizations appear and disappear-the earth remains, slightly modified. The earth remains, and the heartbreaking beauty where there are no hearts to break....I sometimes choose to think, no doubt perversely, that man is a dream, thought an illusion, and only rock is real. Rock and sun.”



Dorothy Maclean on the Vedic Kingdom

"In 1962 Peter and Eileen Caddy, their three children and friend Dorothy Maclean were unemployed and living in a caravan park near the seaside village of Findhorn, Scotland. They decided to make ends meet by planting vegetables - no easy feat with dry sandy soil, and a cold and windswept location that enjoyed only twenty-six inches of rain a year.

Then Dorothy discovered she could contact the nature spirits or devas. They instructed her how to make the most of the poor soil, and over time sixty-five different vegetables, forty-two herbs and twenty-one types of fruit flourished in this soil. The forty pound cabbages, eight foot high delphiniums, and roses that bloomed in the snow, attracted horticultural experts near and far, and the internationally acclaimed spiritual community of Findhorn was born. When IBM research scientist Marcel Vogel visited Findhorn he commented, ‘This garden isn’t growing from the soil, only in the soil. The plants are fed by the consciousness of the community.



“There is much in this vision that will remind you of your mystics; yet between them and us there is far more difference than similarity, in respect both of the matter and the manner of our thought. For while they are confident that the cosmos is perfect, we are sure only that it is very beautiful. While they pass to their conclusion without the aid of intellect, we have used that staff every step of the way. Thus, even when in respect of conclusions we agree with your mystics rather than your plodding intellectuals, in respect of method we applaud most your intellectuals; for they scorned to deceive themselves with comfortable fantasies.” ― Olaf Stapledon, Last and First Men


Excerpts from books


"In this unique environment of the Divine and that we call Australia, I understand my true self, translating the vision of a Holy Mountain back into the language of the Spirit. This is achieved through myself only as a conscious willing instrument of the higher, Spirit in communion with wild life and every kingdom of nature as the Aboriginal people of Australia knew it."

"I have lived with the Aboriginal people of Central Australia and became deeply impressed by the truth that the Aboriginal people had mastered a way of life. This life, based on the systems of totems, perfectly equates man with his environment. The blundering entrance of the white man into their delicately balanced system began the ruin not only of the Aboriginal people, but also their culture."

"The Aboriginal people moved and lived in this living voice, through the achievement of harmonious co-existence with a total wild life Spiritual meaning. This is successful through the principal of differentiation Australia wide."




“I must create a system or be enslaved by another man's. I will not reason and compare; my business is to create.”

“Where any view of money exists, art cannot be carried on.”

“A Poet a Painter a Musician an Architect, the Man
Or Woman who is not one of these is not a Christian You must leave Fathers & Mothers & Houses & Lands if they stand in the way of Art”


"Every human being...they must have a dream, you know?"

“Lolamai-Kuwaqatsi” is Hopi for "all is wonderful Mother Earth"!

The past five weeks has been the most “out of touch” with “civilization” that we’ve ever been; no words can convey the power and awesomeness of being totally embedded in the womb of Mother Earth. We’re back at our friend Arni’s place on the remote north-west coast of Flinders Island, which is about half-way between Tasmania and Melbourne in the south of Australia. Most of our friends who may be reading this now have probably seen the film we made about our weeks here in 2009, The Chronicles of Balarnia, “Balarni” being Arni’s nick-name. It’s been two and a half years since we were here; it’s pretty much the same, only it’s grown a bit, both in terms of indigenous vegetation and Arni’s “semi-permacultural” construction projects. The medicine wheel we made in 2009, our very first, has held up well; before we leave this time we’ll give it a good over-haul.

This document of necessity will be quite brief, not nearly as in-depth of a report as I’d like to send, after being essentially out of electronic communication with everyone for over a month; we have to drive 60 kms both to have electricity and to go on-line, and we have to leave in about 3 hours to go back.

Up until the day we left Hobart five weeks ago I was networking massively about the state of the world and the “geo-terrorism” scenario. Just as informed minds had expected, the situation with Fukushima and the global spread of radioactivity has continued to worsen; and revelations of nefarious intention and agendas at the highest levels of worldly power continue to unfold. As always, it’s important to realize that it’s not “them” that’s doing it all, it’s “us.”

This entire reality, what I would describe as a form of Hadean tragi-comedy crossed with “theatre of the absurd” has seemed light-years away during our weeks at Balarnia, except, in fact, for the week of intensive chem-trail spraying that went on directly over our heads about a month ago. Yes, even over the northern sector of Flinders Island, home to no more than a few dozen people. For a while we even considered that these sinister pseudo-cumular emissions might be specifically for us!

Luckily, however, the very first thing we did upon arriving was to erect a Djed pillar in honour of the positive dimension of ancient Egyptian cosmology. I know about the Djed from my wonderful friend Moira Timms, author of Beyond Prophecies and Predictions, who told me that the Djed is the most powerful of Egyptian symbols and was actually the focus of their most important ceremony called “raising the Djed” that was conducted at sacred and powerful moments in time. The Djed pillar is a symbolic representation of the back-bone of Osiris, who Moira likens to being “the Jesus of the Egyptians.” The Djed represents the union of heaven and Earth, the forces of stability and regeneration. The Djed is also associated with the crown chakra. And the “Djedi” are the “spiritual body of Osiris”, that is, those who are living in their highest consciousness.

I call ours the “Uncle Djed pillar” because we’re using left-over materials like wooden cable spools, pvc piping, and an old ceramic insulator from a power-pole, plus the fact that where we are looks like where the Klampetts might have come from.

Coincidentally, we just happened to arrive at Balarnia just before the Egyptian new year, which is July 23, the “heliacal rising of Sirius”, which is the brightest star in the sky and the most important celestial being to the Egyptians after the Ra, the sun. July 23 is when Sirius becomes visible again after being in conjunction with the sun for 70 days. In perfect harmony with the cosmos, our “raising of the Djed” was conducted on the Egyptian new year.

One of the ancient Greek scientists, Aristotle possibly, wrote about how dolphins all seemed to disappear around “the time of the dog star”, what they call “the dog days” in America, which is in fact 23 July, Sirius being the “dog star.” I’ve always felt there is some kind of connection between the whales and dolphins and the star Sirius. Also on the Egyptian New Year, Liesbet and I were down at the beach and saw a pod of dolphins for the first time ever here on Flinders Island. Another cosmic synchronicity.

Only a few days later the chem-trails started appearing, so we “activated the Djed” on behalf of Mother Earth and requested that the chem-trails be banished. The next day these very interesting cloud formations appeared, and when another chem-trail was released, it looked as if these freaky cloud-beings actually moved towards the chem-trail and chased it away, causing it to dissipate and disappear.

I’ve made up a new concept for what we’re doing at Arni’s. You may have heard of WWOOFing, which is “Willing Workers on Organic Farms.” It’s an international network that people join, then they go to places that host “wwoofers” in various countries, where they work a few hours a day in exchange for food and shelter. What Liesbet and I are doing is called “WWIRSPing”, or “Willing Workers In Remote Semi-Permaculture.” We are doing more and harder work of various kinds than ever before in our lives but not for money; we pay for everything ourselves but we get to stay here and do whatever we want, build and grow whatever we want for as long as we are able to stay here, which could be anywhere from a few more weeks to a few more months. If we could raise $200,000, we’d buy Balarnia to make sure that it remains THE coolest place we know of on this planet. Then Arni could give up on mining gold and buy the schooner of his dreams!

Liesbet’s been doing a massive amount of gardening in several different garden areas, and I’ve focussed on building first furniture, then the stone medicine wheel complex based on the chakras. The Djed pillar is inside the crown chakra, and 25 meters away at the root chakra is a regenerating eucalyptus tree. At the heart chakra will be a small kiva-like chamber which we will be able to sit inside; on top will be soil with plants and sand with another medicine wheel. I’ve also built two large heavy-duty seed-beds, one with chicken-wire on top and one with plate glass; any garden area has to be protected not only from the chickens, of which there are 22, but also from wallaby’s, wombats, and the ever-present possum. In addition, I’m trying to sprout some non-indigenous conifer trees like the giant redwood and the hoop pine, of the Auracaria family.

The building where we are living is not isolated from the surrounding environment by any means; the air blows through nicely and, most awesomely, we can hear the myriad frogs and birds which are always around, especially in the evening. In particular, there are a few more-porks, a native owl, around, as well as another kind of owl that sounds like a cat meowing. At least three of four kinds of frogs, including the banjo frog; kookaburras, of course; and many kinds of small song-birds, like the blue fairy wrens and a swallow-like kind with a very complex song that appeared a couple weeks ago. An ornithologist friend of Arni's observed over 50 species of birds here a few years ago.

I’ve been working so hard that my hands and arms have begun to mutate; I’ve been doing so much physical landscaping, hauling, and construction…a form of “nature dharma”…that I have yet to pick up a paint brush, much less start to write any of the several books that it was my goal at least to begin while at Balarnia.

What we are doing is totally crazy to normal people…doing a massive amount of work, for no money, busting our asses day in and day out, on land we not only don’t own but can’t even stay there for any great length of time without having to leave because of governmental bureaucracy bullshit. We are doing our best actually to live in the reality that we would like to have, and that we’d love to see other people making an attempt to live in…a reality not only close to but firmly embedded in, the womb of Mother Earth; a way of living that is not self-contradictory and that is in harmony with nature; a way of living that is making a serious move towards extreme voluntary simplification and sustainability in a true sense…not the geo-political meme sense. We are living with no electricity, rain-water to drink and pond-water for other uses, planting many many types of edible plants, constantly honouring the Earth and communing with the local nature devas, much in the manner of the original Findhorn in Scotland. We don’t have any 8-foot hollyhocks or 5 pound cabbages grown in sand…yet…but miracles are happening nonetheless. The blue skies, the songs of birds, the voices of the wind and ocean, the gentleness of the rain, the stonedness of the rocks, and the power of life are miracles enough to keep us happy!

What we are doing and how we are living there is in honour of and in the spirit of several of our heroes, in particular, Rachel Carson, author of Silent Spring, whose work we first really discovered here in 2009; Edward Abbey, author of Desert Solitiare, based on his journals from being a park ranger in Arches National Park in Utah in the 1950’s; Black Elk, the Lakota medicine man whose vision of the “healing of the sacred hoop” we are trying to fulfil; William Blake, the 18th century Irish artist/poet/visionary who lived on the fringes of society, foresaw the “Satanic mills” of the Industrial Revolution which is now destroying the Earth, and said that only those people who are true artists, that is, who are true to their own inner and natural creativity, are truly spiritual; Olaf Stapledon, the British philosopher and author of The Star-Maker, whose imaginative writings resemble a journal of actual experience far more than mere flights of fancy; Hundertwasser, the Austrian artist who came to live in remote New Zealand, who loved nature and spirals, hated straight lines and right angles, and who stressed the importance of being in tune with our waste; and finally, William Ricketts, an Australian sculptor and in many ways like William Blake, who spent a lot of time in the central desert with aboriginal peoples in the 1960’s and 70’s, who then created a massive garden of sculptures based on real people that show them literally as a part of nature…I’ve never seen anything like it…the sculptures are installed in a former bird sanctuary near Dandenong to the east of Melbourne. His purpose was to demonstrate to the Wasichu mentality, the white people from Europe, the sacred nobility and beautiful uniqueness of the aboriginal people who have been almost totally exterminated by the greedy and psychotic strains of racism that are unfortunately still “alive and well” in this the “lucky country.” This, like Fukushuma and uranium mining, is another story.

We’ve been reading lots of books, and I’ve been learning some words from the Hopi language. “Lolamai” means “all is wonderful” and “Kuwa-qatsi” means “Mother Earth.” At Balarnia, “all is wonderful for Mother Earth” and we’re doing our best to show her and the Great Spirit that the “people of one heart” are not only not extinct, but are actually thriving in our own small way. We are hoping that the spirit of Balarnia will spread to the ends of the Earth before it's too late for homo sapiens, if in fact the show's not already over for "man, the wise." Maybe destroying ourselves is in fact our final and highest act of real wisdom...doing Mother Earth and everyone else who lives here a big favour.

Check out these photos to see where we are and what we’re doing. Hopefully next week I’ll have time to write more and share our journey here in greater detail. Until then may the Great Spirit smile upon you always, wherever you are and whatever the nature of your personal reality might be…may it be meaningful to you!

In an attempt to keep our friends up to date with what’s going on in the world as well as to share our creative endeavours, I’m creating this new “meta-blog” page. This is part of my on-going work as a "free-lance intelligence agent working for Mother Nature."

It’s purpose is to provide a single page that has links to all of our sites and blogs, so that you can quickly and easily navigate onto any of them and check out the latest postings.

"The technetronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled societydominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values...this elite would not hesitate to achieve its political ends by using the latest modern techniques for influencing public behavior...Persisting social crisis, the emergence of a charismatic personality, and the exploitation of mass media to obtain public confidence would be the stepping-stones in the piecemeal transformation of the United States into a highly controlled society...In addition, it may be possible—and tempting—to exploit for strategic political purposes the fruits of research on the brain and on human behavior"


I created this blog in response to the “not-so-natural” earth-quakes and associated “disasters” which occurred in New Zealand and Japan in recent
months. With my own writings, including first-hand reports of anomalous phenomena in New Zealand and Australia, and the gradual up-loading of relevant articles by other researchers I am attempting to share information relating to the “new generation” of weapons systems which have supplanted atomic/nuclear technologies as the state-of-the-art “coercion leverage” instruments being deployed by globalist power-brokers, who are in fact “geo-terrorists.”

"The Ultimate Technology"

RENAVIGATING THE HUMAN PROCESS is our most urgent necessity. Every instant we are using the "ultimate technology" that we are as a here-and-now instrument of consciousness and creativity. The problems we now face as human beings are a result of software deficiencies in our collective psyche. We have the ability to reprogram our mental operating environment and to renavigate our process away from oblivion and towards the continuity of life. The Earth is the only planet we know so graced.

My newest blog is an attempt to create awareness of how, if humanity is choosing to create the current “global picture show”, then we can also
choose to STOP creating it as it currently exists. Our problems are not a flawed biology that needs to be re-engineered, but a flawed “internal software” or psychological “operating environment” that needs to be cleared, up-graded, and re-installed.

"What we have to face is not an occasional dose of poison which has accidentally got into some article of food...but a persistent and continuous poisoning of the whole human environment."

Dedicated to one of our greatest heroes, this blog is all about an ecological consciousness based on a genuine love of Mother Earth and our entire family of life, and focuses primarily on threats to environmental health like chemical and pesticide toxicity, as well as threats from nuclear and radiological sources.



"To the dolphin alone, beyond all others, Nature has given what the best philosophers seek, friendship for no advantage; yet it is friend to all men and has often given great aid." Plutarch

“The personification of the knowledge of whales” is a Maori phrase that expresses what this blog is all about. Dedicated to the REAL people of Earth, the cetaceans, or whales and dolphins are to me not only the “ultimate indigenous people” but also a true “extra-terrestrial intelligence.” They have been on this planet ten times longer than humans, and are light-years ahead of us in terms of anything that could truly be called
“intelligence.” This blog deals not only with the threats to their continued health and existence but also with “who” they are as fellow sentient beings.



"The scientist of today is distressed by the fact that the results of his scientific work have created a threat to mankind since they have fallen into the hands of morally blind exponents of political power. He is conscious of the fact that technological methods, made possible by his work, have led to a concentration of economic and also of political power in the hands of small minorities which have come to dominate completely the lives of the masses of people, who appear more and more amorphous. But even worse: the concentration of economic and political power has not only made the man of science dependent economically, it also threatens his independence from within; the shrewd methods of intellectual and psychic influences which it brings to bear will prevent the development of independent personalities."

Albert Einstein, Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, 1952

I created this site in 2004 after more than two decades of research in “infotoxicology”, a new discipline I created in 1995, which concerns the pollution of our mental environment and the weaponization of mass-communication. Although this site hasn’t been up-dated since its creation, most of the material on there is not ephemeral but conceptual and historical, and so of relevance now as an aid for research and awareness. A major up-grade is in the works; as well, Peter Entell’s brilliant documentary “The Tube” can now be watched from here.



"If you give a man the correct information for seven years, he may believe the incorrect information on the first day of the eighth year when it is necessary, from your point of view, that he should do so
. Your first job is to build credibility and the authenticity of your propaganda, and persuade the enemy to trust you although you are his enemy."
Psychological Warfare Casebook, Operations Research, Johns Hopkins University, 1958

This blog is a supplement to the regain site and lately I’ve been focussing on the mind-control aspects of the “new generation” of “technetronic” weapons. Television, “wi-fi”, mobile phones and “smart meters” are all part of the integrated weaponized electrical grid scenario.



Here we share information about our film/audio-visual projects, which include Cryo 2008, The Chronicles of Balarnia, Te Waiwaia Dreaming, and our latest project, Gaiotea Dreaming, a slide-show dvd consisting of over 1000 of our still photos from Aotea, or Great Barrier Island, New Zealand, with a sound-track of music from some of our favourite native American/ambient-nature artists, including humpback whales.



I’ve used the name “The Brink” since 1985 for myself in musical form. Here are notes on my various musical projects and links to down-load and/or listen to a selection of original music, including that used in our films.

This is our main web-site where you can see a lot of our visual art; near the top of the page is a link to watch Te Waiwaia Dreaming. On the right side is a list of links to other pages, including “Thalionics” (science of humour) and “Ultimate Technology.” Links to our Picasaweb still-photo sites are there, too.
