All Power To The People! The Black Panther Party & Beyond

The Black Panther Party’s saga, is a blueprint(for real change) of what to, and what not to do in opposition to the beast, it reveals how the beast will wage war on us and our organizations, as our tactics and lifestyle changes take hold in society. It exposes the beast use of capitalism to destroy willing cooperation of individuals and highlights the beast inability to deal with mass self sustainability and free thought.

Notably interesting are the parallels between the times as The Party was derived out of necessity in response to an increase in oppression and austerity similar to today. One could venture to say we are being provoked again, squeezed insurmountably with much death and desolation worldwide, again I might add.

Description:
All Power To The People! – The Black Panther Party & Beyond (Lee Lew Lee, 1996)(HQ)

A Documentary Film by Lee Lou Lee? 115 Minutes.

On Racism, the Panthers, and the Indigenous People’s Movement

Opening with a montage of four hundred years of race conflict in America, this powerful documentary provides the historical context for the establishment of the Black Panther Party for Self Defense in the mid 1960’s.

Organized by Bobby Seale and Huey P. Newton, the Party soon embodied every major element of the civil rights movement which preceded it and the Black, Brown and Red power movements which it helped pioneer.

Yet, the documentary is not a paean to the Panthers, for it criticizes the megalomania, corruption, and narcissism of some Party leaders, while it praises their courage and idealism.

All Power to the People! examines problems of race, poverty, dissent, and the universal conflict of the haves versus the have nots. U.S. government documents, rare news clips, and interviews with both ex-activists and former FBI/CIA officers provide deep insight into the bloody conflict between political dissent and governmental authority in the U.S. of the 60s and 70s.

The Party struck fear in the hearts of the white capitalist power structure, which feared it as a terrorist group. During the Nixon years, J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI, with the cooperation of the CIA, used all means at their disposal to infiltrate and derail the Black Power movement. Methods of state repression included assassination, frame-ups, dirty tricks and black propaganda.

Working as a TV cameraman during the 1992 L.A. riots, Lee Lew-Lee became curious about the history of American race relations and the Black Panther Party (founded in Oakland in 1967). His research led to All Power to the People. The film combines archival footage with interviews from ex-CIA officer Philip Agee, journalist/filmmaker Gordon Parks, and former FBI Special Agent Wesley Swearingen to various Panthers and political radicals. The film covers slavery, civil-rights activists and assassinations in the ’60s, and it explores methods used by police, the FBI, and the CIA to divide and destroy the key figures in the Black Panther Party. The film extends beyond the Panther history to more recent times, covering Reagan-Era events, privacy threats from new technologies and the failure of the War Against Drugs.

Witnesses include not only Party veterans and other Black Power pioneers and political prisoners such as Mumia Abu-Jamal, Dr. Mutulu Skakur and Dhoruba Bin Wahad, but also “establishment” figures like former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark, CIA officer Philip Edward Agee, and retired FBI agents.

Whether or not one is sympathetic to the Black Panthers, the film is an important historic look at the political and racial turmoils of the 1960s and an up-close look at the leading players.

Globally acclaimed as being the most accurate depiction of the goals, aspirations, and ultimate repression of the U.S. Civil Rights Movement,

All Power to the People! is a gripping, timeless news documentary.

Broadcast in 19 countries abroad and winner of 9 awards, the film is an important look at the turmoils of the ’60s and its leading players.

Production
An Electronic News Group production in association with ZDF. Produced by Lee Lew-Lee. Co-producers, Kristin Bell, Nico Panigutti.

A potent indictment, “All Power to the People!” seeks both to recap the Black Panther Party’s oft-distorted history and to expose apparent governmental plots that hastened its demise (ditto that of other late-’60s/early-’70s U.S. “extremist” groups).

The Earths Geomagnetic changes, the Brain and Human Behavior

Do Solar Storms Influence Our Behavior?

Effects of the Sun on Human Behavior

video: Effects of the Sun on Human Behavior

Geomagnetic Fields

The body does not exist outside a magnetic environment, and it never has – even from the embryo stage of a human’s development. All biology on planet Earth is completely, entirely dependent on the Earth’s natural magnetic fields. The Earth is our natal mother in more ways than we know. We are forever dependent upon our “Magnetic Mother.” Only astronauts leave the Earth’s magnetic field—albeit temporarily.

How are we dependent?

From the very beginning of life – intrauterine and planetary – our cells grew in a complex planetary magnetic field system. We can’t leave home without it. The Earth’s magnetic fields comprise:

Earth’s overall DC field – with field lines existing north to south, emanating from the magnetic north and south poles.
Rocks under our feet – as you walk about on the surface of the planet, there are continuing changes in field strength entering the body from under your feet.
Schumann resonances – caused by lightning storms and much more complex than a single resonance of 8.3Hz, ranging from about 1Hz to 50Hz or more.
Geomagnetic storms/solar flares/coronal discharges coming in through the Polar Regions into the planetary ecosphere.
Fields created by the rotation of the planet and variations in the ground level fields caused by tectonic plate movements and the magma in the Earth’s core– animals sense changes in these just before an earthquake.
Telluric currents on the surface of the planet.
Cosmic radiation moving into and through the planet’s environment.
In recent history, the man-made EMFs surrounding us daily, especially in cities.

Due to the non-constant magnetic field of the Earth, currents are induced in a human body in motion. Up to 4 microamperes per square meter occur with exercises such as bending or rotation of the arm and up to 15 microamperes per square meter when travelling at 100 km/hr (about 62mph). These induced currents change at a rate between 0Hz and 10Hz. These induced currents are extremely important to life and human functioning. We routinely see that when people stop moving around, they lost muscle mass, vitality, and function. This gives new meaning to the phrase, “If you don’t use it, you lose it.”

Space program managers and astronauts now understand that being out in space causes more issues with body functioning than just the loss of gravity. Research where the earth’s magnetic fields are suppressed is showing that big changes happen without the background field in which we have developed. Should there ever be a pole reversal, there would be a significant effect on biology – it would not be pleasant, but not irreversible either. There have been pole reversals in the Earth’s past. Examination of the polarization of rocks and sediments in the Earth’s sea floor has shown these events.

Do Solar Storms Influence Our Behavior?

From the late nineteenth century through today, a movement in Russian thought usually referred to as “Russian Cosmism” has devoted serious philosophical, theological, and scientific consideration to a number of topics traditionally grounded in science fiction or in occult literature and practice: the quest for human immortality, the resuscitation of the dead, the negation of gravitational force, the colonization of distant planets, the reconstitution of the human body, self-directed evolution, the emergence of a new age and new reality, the development of super-human capabilities, etc.

One of the more fascinating Cosmist thinkers, a polymath, interdisciplinary scientist now highly honored in Russia but still little known in the West, was Alexander Chizhevsky (1867-1964), a gulag survivor in the 1940s for whom an asteroid was named in the 1970s, a heliobiologist who began his academic career writing about eighteenth century Russian poetry, later considered a leading candidate for a Nobel Prize in chemistry. During the Stalin years, he was found guilty of incorrect thought, of trying to reverse the course of scientific progress, turn chemistry back into alchemy and astronomy back into astrology. His "crime" was to have published a seminal work on the influence of solar storms on human history. His other groundbreaking studies, in aero-ionizization, had led to more eggs from hens and higher worker productivity in factories -- investigations that had won him drawers full of ribbons and medals. But to have suggested that it was not great Comrades Lenin and Stalin and their correct understanding of historical necessity that had led to the Great October Revolution, but sunstorms? -- to the gulag!

Chizhevsky, of course, had never argued that periodic bursts of solar energy were the sole or even prime cause of human events – just that they were an important contributing factor, and could trigger actions that had been building up from a variety of other causes. He called his study of the correlation between periodic cycles of solar and human activity “historiometry” and presented his ideas in a 1918 doctoral dissertation “Analysis of Periodicity in the Worldwide Process,” which was published a few years later as “Physical Factors of the Historical Process.” (English version available online.)

In this study, and throughout his scientific publications, Chizhevsky writes as a confirmed determinist. He finds that all that we think of as the sphere of intellect, culture, and history consists, essentially, of physico-chemical neurological interactions, and lies in the domain of ordinary natural phenomena. Further, as natural phenomena, all intellectual and social activities are affected by interactions with their natural surroundings, including powerful geophysical and cosmic forces. As human beings with only five senses and other limitations, even when aided by mechanical devices, we are aware of only a very small fraction of the innumerable rays, waves, particles, forces, and bundles of energy that constantly bombard our planet and us, forces from both within our solar system and beyond. According to Chizhevsky, these waves and particles of energy come at us in regular, measurable patterns of periodicity, in cycles and rhythms of which we may not be conscious, but which lend order, rhythm, and cycles of periodicity to our lives. As he writes, our blood flows with the “veins of the cosmos,” and our heart beats with “the pulse of the cosmos.”

As evidence for the correlation between cosmic and human periodicity, Chizhevsky produces graphs and charts showing sunspots and major historical events from the fifth century B.C. through the 1917 Revolution. He finds that the pattern of peaks and valleys of solar eruption are almost exactly identical to the peaks of war, revolution, and other manifestations of “mass excitability,” and the valleys of peace, creativity, and “minimal mass excitability.”

Chizhevsky writes: “In each century the rise of synchronic universal military and political activity on the whole of the Earth’s territory is observed exactly nine times. This circumstance enables us to reckon that a cycle of universal human activity embraces eleven years (in the arithmetical mean).” He divides each eleven-year period into subsections exhibiting events of mass behavior building up to and down from the peaks of “excitability.” In his graphs and charts, the great events in human history fall almost magically into the same pattern as the cycles of solar storms.

His theory is interesting and may be plausible when considered in general terms – human history does indeed seem to show rhythmic patterns of rise and fall, widespread excitability and widespread calm. The problem is in the specifics, the details, the charts and graphs. In my book, The Russian Cosmists, I list many objections, only a couple of which I’ll mention here. For example, Chizhevsky says he has given “minute scrutiny” to 2500 years of human history, but how can anyone minutely scrutinize “all the peoples and states known to science” from ancient times to the present? In the first place, science knows little more than the names of most peoples and states of remote eras, (e.g. Picts, Toltecs, Zapotecs, Sarmatians, Massagetae, Jebusites, Moabites, Edomites) And even in well-recorded modern times, if during a given year of maximum or minimum sunspot activity, peace and plenty prevail here while violent uprisings are taking place there, which one do we put on the chart? And how do we chart The Hundred Years War?

Nevertheless, when we see in our own times that maximum solar flare years have come in 1968, with all that was happening then, and came again just in time for the breakup of the USSR, and have come again in the past year, with the Arab Spring and consequences, we may not wish to be too quick to reject the general idea. Though if anyone wants to try to reformulate it, a nuanced discussion might be more persuasive than charts and graphs.

Global Coherence Research

The Science of Interconnectivity

enter image description here

Global coherence research encompasses a large variety of scientific data to gain new insights into the interconnectedness of human/animal health and behavior and the sun and earth’s magnetic activity. The scientific community is just beginning to appreciate and understand the deeper level of how we are interconnected. We are getting closer to understanding why and how magnetic fields generated by the sun and earth affect human health and behavior – and why it is important to know this.
Scientific Background

The idea that the earth, sun and other planetary bodies influence human health and behavior and, on a larger scale, social unrest and significant global events, has been discussed among scientists for decades. The study of interconnectedness, which is not yet fully embraced in the mainstream scientific community, is still in infancy.

Global coherence research utilizes a multidisciplinary approach that includes the geosciences and astrophysics as well as extensive data from human and animal studies that are correlated to social and global events. The Global Coherence Initiative (GCI) employs the Global Coherence Monitoring System to collect a variety of data, especially information about the earth’s magnetic field and how it affects and is influenced by human emotions and behaviors.

The Seven Hermetic Principles – Mark Passio

Seed of Life -Glow-In-The

Published on Nov 26, 2014

Four of the seven “Hermetic Principles” that define the natural laws of the universe are intimately connected to the mirrors process, they are the Principle of Correspondence, of Polarity, of Cause and Effect, and of Gender. Mastering the mirrors process is the single most important spiritual step that a person can take to transforming their life and taking back their personal power. This process is a practical way to unravel the patterns of “why” your life is manifesting as it is, and “why” you behave and experience life as you do. Once all of the mirrors are understood, you can then experience life in a conscious manner, rather than the old, repetitive unconscious fashion that you used to experience life. Life doesn’t happen to you anymore, as you now get to make life happen.

Natural Law Seminar


THE SEVEN HERMETIC PRINCIPLES

    “The Principles of Truth are Seven; he who knows these,
    understandingly, possesses the Magic Key before whose
    touch all the Doors of the Temple fly open.”–The Kybalion.

The Seven Hermetic Principles, upon which the entire Hermetic Philosophy is based, are as follows:

    1. The Principle of Mentalism.
    2. The Principle of Correspondence.
    3. The Principle of Vibration.
    4. The Principle of Polarity.
    5. The Principle of Rhythm.
    6. The Principle of Cause and Effect.
    7. The Principle of Gender.

These Seven Principles will be discussed and explained as we proceed with these lessons. A short explanation of each, however, may as well be given at this point.

1. The Principle of Mentalism

    “THE ALL IS MIND; The Universe is Mental.”–The Kybalion.

This Principle embodies the truth that “All is Mind.” It explains that THE ALL (which is the Substantial Reality underlying all the outward manifestations and appearances which we know under the terms of “The Material Universe”; the “Phenomena of Life”; “Matter”; “Energy”; and, in short, all that is apparent to our material senses) is SPIRIT which in itself is UNKNOWABLE and UNDEFINABLE, but which may be considered and thought of as AN UNIVERSAL, INFINITE, LIVING MIND. It also explains that all the phenomenal world or universe is simply a Mental Creation of THE ALL, subject to the Laws of Created Things, and that the universe, as a whole, and in its parts or units, has its existence in the Mind of THE ALL, in which Mind we “live and move and have our being.” This Principle, by establishing the Mental Nature of the Universe, easily explains all of the varied mental and psychic phenomena that occupy such a large portion of the public attention, and which, without such explanation, are non-understandable and defy scientific treatment. An understanding of this great Hermetic Principle of Mentalism enables the individual to readily grasp the laws of the Mental Universe, and to apply the same to his well-being and advancement. The Hermetic Student is enabled to apply intelligently the great Mental Laws, instead of using them in a haphazard manner. With the Master-Key in his possession, the student may unlock the many doors of the mental and psychic temple of knowledge, and enter the same freely and intelligently. This Principle explains the true nature of “Energy,” “Power,” and “Matter,” and why and how all these are subordinate to the Mastery of Mind. One of the old Hermetic Masters wrote, long ages ago: “He who grasps the truth of the Mental Nature of the Universe is well advanced on The Path to Mastery.” And these words are as true today as at the time they were first written. Without this Master-Key, Mastery is impossible, and the student knocks in vain at the many doors of The Temple.

2. The Principle of Correspondence

    “As above, so below; as below, so above.”–The Kybalion.

This Principle embodies the truth that there is always a Correspondence between the laws and phenomena of the various planes of Being and Life. The old Hermetic axiom ran in these words: “As above, so below; as below, so above.” And the grasping of this Principle gives one the means of solving many a dark paradox, and hidden secret of Nature. There are planes beyond our knowing, but when we apply the Principle of Correspondence to them we are able to understand much that would otherwise be unknowable to us. This Principle is of universal application and manifestation, on the various planes of the material, mental, and spiritual universe–it is an Universal Law. The ancient Hermetists considered this Principle as one of the most important mental instruments by which man was able to pry aside the obstacles which hid from view the Unknown. Its use even tore aside the Veil of Isis to the extent that a glimpse of the face of the goddess might be caught. Just as a knowledge of the Principles of Geometry enables man to measure distant suns and their movements, while seated in his observatory, so a knowledge of the Principle of Correspondence enables Man to reason intelligently from the Known to the Unknown. Studying the monad, he understands the archangel.

3. The Principle of Vibration

    “Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates.”–The
    Kybalion.

This Principle embodies the truth that “everything is in motion”; “everything vibrates”; “nothing is at rest”; facts which Modern Science endorses, and which each new scientific discovery tends to verify. And yet this Hermetic Principle was enunciated thousands of years ago, by the Masters of Ancient Egypt. This Principle explains that the differences between different manifestations of Matter, Energy, Mind, and even Spirit, result largely from varying rates of Vibration. From THE ALL, which is Pure Spirit, down to the grossest form of Matter, all is in vibration–the higher the vibration, the higher the position in the scale. The vibration of Spirit is at such an infinite rate of intensity and rapidity that it is practically at rest–just as a rapidly moving wheel seems to be motionless. And at the other end of the scale, there are gross forms of matter whose vibrations are so low as to seem at rest. Between these poles, there are millions upon millions of varying degrees of vibration. From corpuscle and electron, atom and molecule, to worlds and universes, everything is in vibratory motion. This is also true on the planes of energy and force (which are but varying degrees of vibration); and also on the mental planes (whose states depend upon vibrations); and even on to the spiritual planes. An understanding of this Principle, with the appropriate formulas, enables Hermetic students to control their own mental vibrations as well as those of others. The Masters also apply this Principle to the conquering of Natural phenomena, in various ways. “He who understands the Principle of Vibration, has grasped the scepter of power,” says one of the old writers.

4. The Principle of Polarity

    “Everything is Dual; everything has poles; everything has its
    pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are
    identical in nature, but different in degree; extremes meet;
    all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes may be
    reconciled.”–The Kybalion.

This Principle embodies the truth that “everything is dual”; “everything has two poles”; “everything has its pair of opposites,” all of which were old Hermetic axioms. It explains the old paradoxes, that have perplexed so many, which have been stated as follows: “Thesis and antithesis are identical in nature, but different in degree”; “opposites are the same, differing only in degree”; “the pairs of opposites may be reconciled”; “extremes meet”; “everything is and isn’t, at the same time”; “all truths are but half-truths”; “every truth is half-false”; “there are two sides to everything,” etc., etc., etc. It explains that in everything there are two poles, or opposite aspects, and that “opposites” are really only the two extremes of the same thing, with many varying degrees between them. To illustrate: Heat and Cold, although “opposites,” are really the same thing, the differences consisting merely of degrees of the same thing. Look at your thermometer and see if you can discover where “heat” terminates and “cold” begins! There is no such thing as “absolute heat” or “absolute cold”–the two terms “heat” and “cold” simply indicate varying degrees of the same thing, and that “same thing” which manifests as “heat” and “cold” is merely a form, variety, and rate of Vibration. So “heat” and “cold” are simply the “two poles” of that which we call “Heat”–and the phenomena attendant thereupon are manifestations of the Principle of Polarity. The same Principle manifests in the case of “Light and Darkness,” which are the same thing, the difference consisting of varying degrees between the two poles of the phenomena. Where does “darkness” leave off, and “light” begin? What is the difference between “Large and Small”? Between “Hard and Soft”? Between “Black and White”? Between “Sharp and Dull”? Between “Noise and Quiet”? Between “High and Low”? Between “Positive and Negative”? The Principle of Polarity explains these paradoxes, and no other Principle can supersede it. The same Principle operates on the Mental Plane. Let us take a radical and extreme example–that of “Love and Hate,” two mental states apparently totally different. And yet there are degrees of Hate and degrees of Love, and a middle point in which we use the terms “Like or Dislike,” which shade into each other so gradually that sometimes we are at a loss to know whether we “like” or “dislike” or “neither.” And all are simply degrees of the same thing, as you will see if you will but think a moment. And, more than this (and considered of more importance by the Hermetists), it is possible to change the vibrations of Hate to the vibrations of Love, in one’s own mind, and in the minds of others. Many of you, who read these lines, have had personal experiences of the involuntary rapid transition from Love to Hate, and the reverse, in your own case and that of others. And you will therefore realize the possibility of this being accomplished by the use of the Will, by means of the Hermetic formulas. “Good and Evil” are but the poles of the same thing, and the Hermetist understands the art of transmuting Evil into Good, by means of an application of the Principle of Polarity. In short, the “Art of Polarization” becomes a phase of “Mental Alchemy” known and practiced by the ancient and modern Hermetic Masters. An understanding of the Principle will enable one to change his own Polarity, as well as that of others, if he will devote the time and study necessary to master the art.

5. The Principle of Rhythm

    “Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides;
    all things rise and fall; the pendulum-swing manifests in
    everything; the measure of the swing to the right is the
    measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates.”–The
    Kybalion.

This Principle embodies the truth that in everything there is manifested a measured motion, to and fro; a flow and inflow; a swing backward and forward; a pendulum-like movement; a tide-like ebb and flow; a high-tide and low-tide; between the two poles which exist in accordance with the Principle of Polarity described a moment ago. There is always an action and a reaction; an advance and a retreat; a rising and a sinking. This is in the affairs of the Universe, suns, worlds, men, animals, mind, energy, and matter. This law is manifest in the creation and destruction of worlds; in the rise and fall of nations; in the life of all things; and finally in the mental states of Man (and it is with this latter that the Hermetists find the understanding of the Principle most important). The Hermetists have grasped this Principle, finding its universal application, and have also discovered certain means to overcome its effects in themselves by the use of the appropriate formulas and methods. They apply the Mental Law of Neutralization. They cannot annul the Principle, or cause it to cease its operation, but they have learned how to escape its effects upon themselves to a certain degree depending upon the Mastery of the Principle. They have learned how to USE it, instead of being USED BY it. In this and similar methods, consist the Art of the Hermetists. The Master of Hermetics polarizes himself at the point at which he desires to rest, and then neutralizes the Rhythmic swing of the pendulum which would tend to carry him to the other pole. All individuals who have attained any degree of Self-Mastery do this to a certain degree, more or less unconsciously, but the Master does this consciously, and by the use of his Will, and attains a degree of Poise and Mental Firmness almost impossible of belief on the part of the masses who are swung backward and forward like a pendulum. This Principle and that of Polarity have been closely studied by the Hermetists, and the methods of counteracting, neutralizing, and USING them form an important part of the Hermetic Mental Alchemy.

6. The Principle of Cause and Effect

    “Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause;
    everything happens according to Law; Chance is but a name
    for Law not recognized; there are many planes of causation,
    but nothing escapes the Law.”–The Kybalion.

This Principle embodies the fact that there is a Cause for every Effect; an Effect from every Cause. It explains that: “Everything Happens according to Law”; that nothing ever “merely happens”; that there is no such thing as Chance; that while there are various planes of Cause and Effect, the higher dominating the lower planes, still nothing ever entirely escapes the Law. The Hermetists understand the art and methods of rising above the ordinary plane of Cause and Effect, to a certain degree, and by mentally rising to a higher plane they become Causers instead of Effects. The masses of people are carried along, obedient to environment; the wills and desires of others stronger than themselves; heredity; suggestion; and other outward causes moving them about like pawns on the Chessboard of Life. But the Masters, rising to the plane above, dominate their moods, characters, qualities, and powers, as well as the environment surrounding them, and become Movers instead of pawns. They help to PLAY THE GAME OF LIFE, instead of being played and moved about by other wills and environment. They USE the Principle instead of being its tools. The Masters obey the Causation of the higher planes, but they help to RULE on their own plane. In this statement there is condensed a wealth of Hermetic knowledge–let him read who can.

7. The Principle of Gender

    “Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine
    and Feminine Principles; Gender manifests on all
    planes.”–The Kybalion.

This Principle embodies the truth that there is GENDER manifested in everything–the Masculine and Feminine Principles ever at work. This is true not only of the Physical Plane, but of the Mental and even the Spiritual Planes. On the Physical Plane, the Principle manifests as SEX, on the higher planes it takes higher forms, but the Principle is ever the same. No creation, physical, mental or spiritual, is possible without this Principle. An understanding of its laws will throw light on many a subject that has perplexed the minds of men. The Principle of Gender works ever in the direction of generation, regeneration, and creation. Everything, and every person, contains the two Elements or Principles, or this great Principle, within it, him or her. Every Male thing has the Female Element also; every Female contains also the Male Principle. If you would understand the philosophy of Mental and Spiritual Creation, Generation, and Re-generation, you must understand and study this Hermetic Principle. It contains the solution of many mysteries of Life. We caution you that this Principle has no reference to the many base, pernicious and degrading lustful theories, teachings and practices, which are taught under fanciful titles, and which are a prostitution of the great natural principle of Gender. Such base revivals of the ancient infamous forms of Phallicism tend to ruin mind, body and soul, and the Hermetic Philosophy has ever sounded the warning note against these degraded teachings which tend toward lust, licentiousness, and perversion of Nature’s principles. If you seek such teachings, you must go elsewhere for them–Hermeticism contains nothing for you along these lines. To the pure, all things are pure; to the base, all things are base.

This past May, I went to the Archives of the Indies in Seville, Spain to see the original documents issued by Pope Alexander VI in 1493, and to see the original Requerimiento (‘the Requirement’) issued by the Spanish crown government in 1513, 500 years ago this year. The archives director was kind enough to let us see the two original papal bulls. (I traveled with Dr. Debra Harry (Paiute Nation) and attorney Sharon Venne (Cree Nation).

The Requerimiento was written to formally notify the original and free nations in places such as Panama and elsewhere in ‘the Americas’ that they were required by the right of the Bible, the Crown, and the Sword to hand themselves over to Christian domination in the form of the Catholic Church and the Spanish crown.

What do I mean by domination? Domination is arbitrary and unrestrained-control exerted by one person or group over another person or group, or exerted by one nation or people over another. Arbitrary means you get to make it up as you go, on the basis of “whim” or “fancy,” meaning “a fanciful idea.” Given that a whim is “a sudden desire or change of mind,” domination is accurately defined as a presumption of being required to obey the desires and ideas of others, until a habit of obedience is well established. The T-shirt slogan “Obey” is missing a conclusion: “Obey the Domination.”

Why Papal Bull Claiming Dominion Over Non Christian Lands Still

Around 235 A.D., the Roman Empire entered a phase of despotism that historians of the period term “the Dominate.” A couple of years ago a Latin scholar told me that the Dominate translates in English into “domination over everything.” Alternatively, it could be phrased “everyone and everything under domination.” Today, overwhelming evidence in the context of the U.S. (the Patriot Acts I and II, the Authorization of Use of Force, The National Defense Authorization Act, global and unrestrained NSA surveillance, billions spent on the militarization of the police, etc.) suggests that the American Empire has entered its own version of the Dominate, or what the U.S. military has termed its program of “Full Spectrum Dominance 2020” for the year of its scheduled completion.

A precursor of today’s dark period was manifested five hundred years ago by the Spanish crown in the abovementioned “El Requerimiento” (The Requirement). The document was based on a bizarre Catholic- Christian worldview that God had created such key persons as Adam (along with Eve, as an afterthought), as well as St. Peter, who became the first in a long line of popes. Later, Pope Alexander VI generously donated to the Catholic sovereigns, King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, and had awarded them domination over all non-Christian Indian lands “discovered and to be discovered.”

John Trudell on the Christian World View

As a result of this belief, the Christian God’s providence, and the pope’s immense generosity, required the Indians, those “discovered and to be discovered,” to obey what theologian Luis Rivera, in his book A Violent Evangelism (1992), calls “the Spanish domination.” Thus, El Requermiento was a “requirement” arbitrarily imposed on free nations and peoples to ‘Obey the Domination’ of ‘the State,’ through the directives of the Spanish Empire and Emperor (Charles V). The result was a bloody genocide being committed against originally free and independent nations and peoples, and millions were killed, and millions more forced under domination.

Today, the phrase ‘the State’ is shorthand for ‘the State of Domination,’ which everyone, including ‘Indigenous peoples’ (peoples under a presumption of dominance) are now considered required to obey. In ‘The Dominate’ of the American Empire, its agents deem the Patriot Acts, I and II, the Authorization of Use of Force, The National Defense Authorization Act, and so forth, to be Los Requerimentos (The Requirements) of our time.

We are told that those documents require our obedience and subjection to the American Government, the supposed “representatives” of “the American people.” It is the most updated version of a model of domination that is thousands of years old, only this time it is being done with a technological sophistication and capability that those empires of the ancient past could not even dream of. All this is what the Dark Lord Dick Cheney termed “the new normal.”

Nonetheless, we, as the originally free and independent nations and peoples of this hemisphere—‘the Americas’—still have the spiritual and ceremonially capacity to remember our original free existence. This is our permanent status quo ante (fallback position). Our original free existence renders void any and all claims of any rightful or legitimate domination over us in the name of “conquest,” but it will not invoke itself. We have to explicitly invoke it.

From the viewpoint of our originally free political identity and law systems, their supposed “requirements” based on their arbitrary ideas, desires, and whims are null and void. The boarding schools and other psychological operation centers used against us and our ancestors during their childhoods were efforts to de-spiritualize us, but the fact that this column is being written demonstrates that those efforts failed.

Our original free existence (B.C., Before Colonization) is the source of our right of self-determination, which makes us forever rightfully free of any claim that we must obey their claim to a right of domination over us. Our full right of self-determination entails the right to freely choose our political status as Nations and Peoples, which includes the right to live our lives on the basis of our sacred birthright, entirely free from any and all manifestations of their wrongful and illegitimate systems of domination.

Pope Francis apologises for Catholic crimes against indigenous peoples during the colonization of the Americas

  • Zachary Davies Boren Friday 10 July 2015

On his first papal visit to his native Latin America, Pope Francis issued an historic apology to the native peoples of the Americas for sins committed by the Catholic Church during the conquest of the continents.

At a social justice summit in Bolivia, at which many indigenous groups and the country’s first-ever indigenous president Evo Morales were in attendance, the first-ever Latin American pope “humbly” asked for forgiveness.

In his speech, Francis said that many Latin American Catholic leaders have previously addressed the “grave sins committed against the native peoples of America in the name of God”.

He also recalled that, during a visit to the Dominican Republic in 1992, Pope John Paul II had apologised for the “pain and suffering” over the hundreds of years since the Church arrived at American shores.

But Francis went further.

He said: “I humbly ask forgiveness, not only for the offences of the church herself, but also for crimes committed against the native peoples during the so-called conquest of America.”

Water, Hydration and You!

“Hydration is important because the body is comprised mostly of water, and the proper balance between water and electrolytes in our bodies really determines how most of our systems function, including nerves and muscles.”~ Dr. Larry Kenney, Penn State Professor of Physiology and Kinesiology

30 Days Drinking Only Water • Life-hack/Change

This Is What Happens When You Drink Only Water For 30 Days

by

The body—each molecular cell, tissue, and organ—relies upon water to remain alive and workable. Water provides a kind of health therapy, along with sustaining your life. It greatly impacts specific body operations and the maintenance of good health. Water is continuously essential to the entire body—from the hair on your head to the skin on the soles of your feet. Every body part requires liberal hydration to work correctly.

When you only drink water as your primary beverage, outstanding things can happen. Undertaking a special water regimen is not easily achievable for some, but positive consequences are possible. Here’s what can happen when you drink only water for 30 days, without changing your diet or exercise routine.

Water Gift of Life

Total health is considerably improved

A Slovakian Proverb says “Pure water is the world’s first and foremost medicine.”

That is no exaggeration! Water behaves as a catalyst for the renewal of optimal body functions. Drinking adequate amounts of water supports the performance of your liver and kidneys. These organs eliminate toxic substances, waste, and salt from your blood.

Skin and bones will be renewed, strengthened, and invigorated

When you drink water only for an entire month, several things happen. Initially, you may need to get accustomed to frequent restroom visits. As your body releases unhealthy substances and discharges them through your skin, you may develop acne. However, the positive points well outweigh the inconveniences.

Water helps rebuild shock absorber cartilage, so joints can move smoothly, curtailing joint damage triggered by tension. Testimonies give evidence that joint flexibility improves with adequate intake of water.

The body goes through a detoxification, which helps you to lose pounds and inches and keep them off

When you drink only water for 30 days, your body removes irritable, harmful toxins and waste products from your vital organs. This makes your body cleaner and helps trim belly fat.

Mental creativity and performance will be boosted

Water is awesome for the mind and the body. The brain needs tons of oxygen to operate efficiently, so drinking more water is fundamental. It boosts your brainpower, it helps you think, helps you focus, and it makes you keen, clever, and quick. Ingesting eight to 10 cups of water per day can improve your cognitive performance by as much as 30%. When you drink only water for 30 days, your brain reacts faster, according to the Frontiers in Human Neuroscience Journal.

Drinking water can prevent fatigue and help you stay awake, according to WebMD. One woman replaced her daily coffee with water, claiming that she no longer needed the caffeine. However, if you need an added lift to concentrate and work more conscientiously, drink caffeine on an as-needed basis only, not regularly.

A Great Way You Could Be Drinking Water

Metabolism and overall mood is enhanced, energy levels are significantly powered

Your choice of drink influences your metabolic rate, which fuels your daily productivity. Studies suggest that consistently drinking water during each day stimulates a more dynamic metabolism, regardless of your diet. Consuming 16 ounces of water just after awaking in the mornings raises your metabolism by 24%, according to the Health Fitness Revolution. By adding lemon to your water, you generate incredible energy, exceptional sharpness, and mental clarity.

The aging process slows

Drinking water helps decelerate the aging process by keeping your skin adequately hydrated. It moisturizes your skin, keeps it healthy, soft, plump, glowing, youthful, and wrinkle-free. It helps maintain muscle tone, also. To realize these benefits, you must drink pure water.

Your finances will experience a boost

Better health, with the restoration of your body’s water reserves, vitamins, and other nutrients, is only one of the fantastic benefits that come with drinking more water. Becoming a water connoisseur saves you money.

Installing a water filtration system is the wholesome and economical way to go. Shape Magazine estimates that “replacing your daily can of soda at lunch with a free-from-the-tap glass of water (or water cooler if you have access to one) can save you about $180 a year.”

You have proper food digestion and bowel movements

Drinking enough water is hugely important for the absorption and transport of nutrients through the body. Digestion is the process whereby food is broken down into the nutrients essential for growth, energy, cell repair, and the preservation of life. Water is critical to both food digestion and bowel movements.

You are more health conscious about what you eat and drink, developing new habits

When you brush your teeth and they are all sparkly and clean, you hesitate to put any food in your mouth, not wanting to ruin your polishing job. Likewise, after you get used to drinking water and enjoying the benefits thereof, you become more mindful of not only the beverages you drink, but also the foods you eat. You begin to take note of certain hints from your body, to question the mechanics of your food choices and your thirst. Are they proponents of your good health or not?

This is easier said than done. Take time to think. Purposefully anticipate setbacks and address hurdles.

“An obstacle often is very easy to deal with ahead of time, and very hard to deal with at the moment it occurs.” — Charles Duhigg

Indeed, as Stephen Johnson, EPA Administrator, has declared, “Water is the lifeblood of our bodies, our economy, our nation and our well-being.”

Wonderful results occur when you drink only water for 30 days. Get robust and fit—get hydrated. All the best to your good health and wellbeing!
