The Islamic Bomb and the Day of Judgement

Yawm ad-Din, the Day of Judgement

The US firebombed Tokyo in 1945. More people died then than at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but it was the horrific image of the atom bomb that has gripped the collective consciousness. It was a message of ultimate destruction, designed to not only annihilate the wartime enemy but also intimidate any future enemies that might dare to resist the Empire.

Didn't work, of course. The Russians decided they wanted the Bomb too, and got one. then the Brits French Chinese and Israelis got lots, using stolen or transferred technology.

They had to test the Bomb, of course, so lots went off on ocean atolls, in the atmosphere, and underground so that millions of people died from subsequent cancers. The Earth itself was permanently poisoned. Global disarmament (the "Peace Sign") was the movement whose campaign of civil disobedience based on Gandhian principles inspired the Civil Rights movement, Anti-War, Environmentalism and other causes.

When the Chinese got the bomb the Indians, who were fearful of them, developed their own, so the Pakistanis, fearful of the Indians, got their own, unfortunately styled 'Islamic' bomb. Now maybe the Iranians are trying to get one?

A woman came to see me in L.A. She was dying of cancer, which had metastasized and spread to her bones. She could barely walk, and her back was so hunched she couldn't walk. After two sessions her back straightened completely and her pain was gone. Coincidentally, her husband was a senior IAEA Inspector, who monitored nuclear programs. During the six months we were there, she did quite well, though the cancer was still there.

That woman is an analogue for the state of Islam today. It is consumed by cancer, yet even when offered healing, it cannot heal. Now I have honestly stated my deep love for Muslims but also, reasons for criticism, here: so there's nothing new to add there.

But how does that correlate with the Islamic Bomb and Day of Judgement? Muslims believe in corporal entities like Angels, who are beings of light, and Djinn, beings of fire. They also believe in a Final Day of Judgement, when all will be judged, and these elements are all a part of that narrative. The Pakistani Nuclear bomb is, in fact, the Genie in the lamp I refer to.

There’s a terrible beauty in weapons of war. Guns, swords, nuclear bombs. I can even, contrarian that I am, appreciate the tremendous effort in physics it took to manufacture them without moralizing about How Bad They Are. If some seek to threaten the Muslim nation, who would then feel safe by having the Bomb, I say go for it. Pakistan, Iran, Libya (now THAT was a hoot!) and I could even understand their strategic reasoning.

But: Are they really safer now? I doubt that. In one way, it prevents a conventional war. In another way, all it leads to is attempts by various states and intelligence agencies to destabilize the countries trying to develop nuclear devices. THAT is what’s happening in Pakistan now, but of course, the real, underlying, motive is that it all really is a War against Islam, because Islam resists this global domination.

That’s how I see it politically, and I’ve already asked the question, why is this resistance incapable of winning, but just persevering; where is the leader or saviour from Islam? But spiritually, I see it differently. Djinns are capable, like humans, of good and evil, and nuclear power can likewise be used either way. Djinns, as creatures of fire, will bring about the Final Days.

So, a nuclear war? No. The earth would become uninhabitable. But humanity, and not just Muslims, will still go through the fire now. You see, it is a human failing to want to control their environment, when one can’t even control one’s self. To that end we look for intercession from angels, djinns, and God. Some Muslims even attempt to conjure up djinn to do their bidding. But, according to tradition, those who try to control the djinn when they can’t even follow the right path, will always end up being hurt and tricked by them.

So, as millions of Muslims are being brutalized and killed, and NOT ONE Muslim is capable leading the Ummah, the question remains: are we entering the final Days? Indeed, yes, and it has been prophesied. And this applies To All, not just Muslims. The world will be in a worse place next year, and the Day of Judgement will come for all.

What can we do to prepare? Stop trying to control power. Follow the spiritual path. Be the best you can be.

The Occupation of the Mind

The Mind is too wonderful a thing to be wasted

As I get to a certain age :) I find myself reflecting on what I did with my life, and the directions taken. What always intrigued me was the pursuit of knowledge, but, as I recognised how we could control the mind, so, too, could the mind be controlled; if we could occupy or use the mind, so, too, could the mind be occupied by external forces, not always benevolent.

Our minds are occupied territory, no less than Palestine is, no less than the people of Orwell's 1984, no less than the drug controlled people of Huxley's Brave New World. And we do have Big Brother, new 'permanent enemies', and new drugs to control and manipulate us.

Then there's this: "The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country… We are governed, our minds molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized… ”So opens Propaganda (1928), one of several strikingly frank analyses of western social psychology written by Edward Bernays. This nephew of Sigmund Freud founded the public relations industry in the United States"

Yes there is 'an unseen mechanism of society' and the question is, who, and what, are the forces that manipulate our minds?

I was the boy who was always reading a book. I was the one who questioned things. Not finding all the answers I needed in the Material world, I visited the Psychic and Spiritual worlds.

And this what I saw. Everything is, and has, an energy. When you learn to see the ebb and flow of energy, the imprints, the little points of light that are people, that are thoughts, that are events past, events that are are yet to take place, and the forces that try to shape them. it's so easy to read, like a book..

I wrote Man From Atlan in 1974. There's a scene inside an Egyptian pyramid. There, the descendants of the Atlanteans, now set up as the gods of Egypt, discuss how their secret society uses religion to control the masses.. for their own good of course.

There's a debate right now which pits religion against scientific objectivism, or the so called rational mind. This is a false debate, IMO, because both can be dogmatic, both can be abusive and part of the manipulative process. It is control through permanent conflict, which once used to be between believers and non-believers, 'good' vs 'evil' and now, the 'rational' and 'irrational' mind.

Yes, there are religious leaders, of every faith, who say their faith condones killing. That is false, as are they. But objective humanists do just as much harm with their new religion of what I call "Scientism", which seeks to confine all human knowledge to what can be determined by a new priesthood using what is called the Scientific Method. They could never acknowledge subtle energies, or Astrology, or ESP. Since they never can, it seems, admit that Vaccines are harmful, or adding Fluoride to our drinking water is insane, to name just two examples, I conclude that the harm they do is far greater than that posed by the religious fanatics, but I'll let them and the Darwin fetishists slug it out. Yes, religiousity is so easy to manipulate, and it in turn controls people through fear. But the rational mind bound by what can be observed through the senses controls people too. Get the Flu shot or you'll die! Hmmph.

There are so many ways opinion and belief can be moulded. Religion, society, culture, and authority figures masked as experts. Celebrities can sell anything, as we project our own lack of self-identity on to fantasy figures in the ether. The Media, the great distraction which includes the Internet, bombards us with visual stimuli designed to create a post hypnotic condition. Then we'll buy anything. Then we'll be manipulated into wars. Then we'll buy Bernays' 'Propaganda' and let our minds live under Occupation..

I've already identified the global elites. You can't defeat them with violence, that's Their tool. I couldn't even be bothered whether they're demons, or possessed by them. The sheer scope of their power makes them blind.. I can see them, I can outlive them beyond generations, and my mind, unbound, will always be free...

This is how we can free our selves. Accept responsibility for our selves instead of blaming others. Don't accept or buy their shit. Look after your self and your family. Build community and, be your brother and sister's keeper. Find your spiritual center. Always be in it.

Zombie Remembrance Day

Dawn of the Dead 2004

My daughter Gebbriel's elementary school class was working on a tableau commemorating Remembrance Day. My zombie-loving 10 yr old suggested they model it on Dawn of the Dead, with everyone chasing each other around and killing each other, and how silly war was, with people killing each other like zombies.

One kid said:
"I've got a rifle and I can kill everybody" pointing it around the class and going Bam! Bam! then another said "I have a rifle too" and started shooting so everyone in class started running around and shooting and falling down. Then my daughter marched in and, striking a pose, said "Everyone's dead. Now we have Peace!"

Every one was laughing now but the teacher said, 'sorry kids, this is a solemn occasion, so you'll have to be serious'.

The kids have it right: War is silly.
