Egyptian Gods As Metaphors

Egyptian Gods as Metaphors
by John Van Auken

The gods of ancient Egypt are metaphors for key aspects of the origin and destiny of humanity. According to Edgar Cayce’s discourses, the average citizen of ancient Egypt understood the hidden message better than we do today. Cayce further states that the characters and imagery in the Book of Revelation were also metaphors for hidden messages, and some disciples knew that and understood the Revelation better than we do today.

Here are brief insights into the hidden meaning of several key Egyptian gods.

RA, the Sun

The Sun is the source and sustainer of life, penetrator of the darkness, warmer of the cold, nurturer of the seed deep in the soil. Its rays reach out through the darkness of space and night, and give warmth, light, and life to all they touch. This is Ra (originally pronounced, “ray”). Ra is the most high God. Out of the great "Ray" came countless little rays, known as the sons and daughters of Ra. They are godlings from the one God, created in its image and destined to fill all the cosmos with light and life.
HERMES, the Moon

As the rays or godlings went forth, some lost their connectedness to the great Ra. They moved too far into darkness. Their light dimmed. The darkness overcame them. Their faces turned away from the original light. All they saw were the shadows of life. They needed help. Some power needed to help them recall the original light, the original way, the original purpose. This was the power of the moon god Thoth, or Hermes in Greek. This power reflects the light to all things that have turned away from the direct light.

Hermes is most often depicted as a powerful god with an ibis head. The ibis is a bird who lives on the shore between the two worlds of the deep water and the land. The two worlds are emblems of the subconscious and conscious minds. The power to live between these two is seen as important to living the true life. Another little characteristic of the ibis is that it is one of the few birds that can eat the serpent. Again, an important metaphor for the developing godlings to recognize the need to control their lower, self-seeking urges if they are to reunite with the creator and the original purpose.

The ancient Egyptian is not speaking of the form and function of the sun and moon in the third dimension. He is speaking of their meaning in dimensions of mind and spirit. In dimensions beyond the third, the sun and moon are emblems of deeper powers. For the ancient Egyptian, light is consciousness -- a knowing, understanding consciousness. Darkness is unconsciousness. Living in moonlight is semi-consciousness, or self-consciousness with no sense of oneness or connectedness with the source of light.

This teaching is expanded by the hidden message behind the outward passage of the Sun. The rising sun represents the beginning: light dawned in the still, silent darkness -- exactly as the sun rises in the morning. This dawning light penetrated the darkness and continued to its zenith, exactly as the sun rises through the morning to noon. Throughout this period all faces are turned toward the sun, receiving warmth, light, and life. The creator’s power penetrates everything. Then, something changes. The created, the godlings in Ra’s image, move away from the creator in order to know themselves, find themselves. The earth and the created move toward dusk. Shadows begin to fall and lengthen. The created are left to themselves. Darkness falls. Through the night souls deal with their innermost urges, while danger nips at their heels, like a little serpent. In Egyptian lore this little serpent is Apep, who nips at the heels of Ra as he traverses the underworld of night and death, seeking the horizon of resurrection and rebirth. There are many temptations, many pitfalls. But, if the godlings hold in their hearts the lightness of hope, trust, and selflessness, then they will become light of heart and as a result they will glide above the serpent’s bite and find the new horizon. The sun will break through the night reclaiming all who are still looking, still believing.

Throughout the dark night of the souls, the moon helps remind them of the continual existence of the true light. Despite the darkness, the sun has never moved. We have moved. If one looks at the moon and intuits the source of its light, then one knows the sun still exists, the creator still exists, and will look to the returning dawn.

ISIS & NEPTHYSIS, the two Guardians

To help with this great journey into darkness, two guardians watch over each ray as it travels the earth, the underworld, and the lower heavens. In Ancient Egypt, these guardians are Isis and her sister Nepthysis. Isis is the power to hold the thought of the Throne of God within one’s mind, whether it be only a faint memory or a vivid image. She is often depicted with the Throne of God on her head or mind. Nepthysis is the magical power to know that the unseen forces are more powerful than the seen, despite the appearance to the contrary. She is often depicted with a bowl-like receptacle on a pedestal upon her head or mind.

These two sisters are in every death scene, at the head and foot of the body of the deceased. They are powerful influences to help the freed soul find its way to the higher realms, higher truths. They are also seen standing behind the great god of the underworld, Osiris, pass whom all must go if they are to enter the heavens. His judgment is exact; one’s heart must be as light as a feather. If not, then one sinks into the underworld and cycles through the darkness to another dawn, and another opportunity to free oneself from heavy-heartedness.

ANUBIS, the sixth sense

When one has taken a long journey away from home, one can lose the trail home. If one cannot find or recall the way home, then one needs help. Anubis, the jackal-headed god, is the symbol of that help. The jackal can pick up the scent of the trail traversed to get here, and therefore the way home. At every death scene in ancient Egypt, Anubis is depicted. He is the sixth sense that recalls the way home.

OSIRIUS & SET, the two brothers’ tale

In Egyptian lore two brothers were born. One loved God and cooperated lovingly with the creation. The other pursued self-seeking urges and interests, and took advantage of the creation, giving little thought to the consequences of his actions and appetites. In Egypt these two brothers were Osirius and Set (sometimes called “Seth,” and from which some Pharaohs took the name “Seti”). Just as in the biblical story of Cain and Able, Set grew jealous of Osirius and killed him.

ISIS, Conceiver of the Messiah

One of the greatest gods among the hosts of godlings was Isis. She was strong, enduring, and clever. She was not to follow the weaknesses of most of her fellow gods, seeking to mingle with the sons and daughters of man and their carnal sensations.

Behold, Isis was in the form of a woman, skilled in words. Her heart rebelled at the millions of men, she chose rather the millions of the gods, and she esteemed the millions of the spirits. She meditated in her heart, "Could I not be in heaven and earth like Ra, and make myself mistress of the earth and a goddess by knowing the name of the holy God?"

Isis had many adventures, but the greatest were the resurrection of Osiris, the conception and birthing of Horus, and her struggles with Set, the destroyer. The story goes like this:

Isis began as a modest divinity of the Delta (Isris). Because of her intense seeking to maintain godliness in the midst of humanness, she interacted with the great god Ra. From him she cleverly gained wisdom and power (much to his surprise). After Ra returned to the heavens, the god Osiris, her elder brother in the family of gods, chose her as his consort and she shared the throne with him. She helped him, as she had Ra, civilize the earthly ones. She taught the art of curing disease, of growing corn, spinning flax and weaving cloth, and marrying to form a home in order to bring about some semblance of heaven in this faraway place.

When Osiris went on a great journey around the earth, she remained as regent of Egypt. She ruled so wisely and well that their younger brother Set could not take over. However, Set was full of self-seeking desires and so he cunningly convinced his older and trusting brother Osiris to lie down in a coffin, whereupon he killed Osiris, sealed the coffin and cast it into the Nile, which carried it out to sea. It came to rest on a distant shore at the base of a tamarisk tree. The tree grew around the coffin, concealing it entirely within its trunk. When the tree was cut down by the king of that distant land, it gave off such an exquisite fragrance that its reputation spread around the world, eventually reaching Isis' ears. When she heard of this fragrant tree, she knew immediately that it was the essence of Osiris. When she arrived in that land, the queen, Astarte, entrusted her newborn son into Isis' care. Isis would have conferred immortality upon the child if the mother hadn't broken the spell by her anguished cries of terror when she saw Isis bathe the baby in purifying flames. In order to calm the mother, Isis reveals her true identify and intentions. The mother then convinces her husband, the king, to give the trunk of the magnificent tree to Isis.

Isis drew forth the coffin from the tree, and the body from the coffin. She bathed it in her tears and hid the body in the marshes. But Set found the body and cut it into fourteen pieces, scattering them far and wide. Isis, never discouraged, began a patient search for the precious fragments, finding all of them but the phallus, which had been eaten by a creature of the earth who is forever cursed for this crime.

In a magical, mystical intermingling with the reconstructed, reanimated body of Osiris, Isis conceives a child that will grow to be the true heir to the throne, contesting Set's claim to it. She then performs the first rites of embalming, restoring Osiris to eternal life, ruler of the netherworld. She is assisted in this rite by her sister Nephthys (who is also the wife of Set), her nephew Anubis (who appears in all death scenes to lead the deceased through the darkness), by Thoth, and even by the yet unborn Horus.

When Set hears of this, he captures her and imprisons her. With the help of Thoth, she conceals her pregnancy from Set and escapes. She hides Horus in the marshes, raising him in secret until he is strong enough to challenge Set (recalling the raising of the baby Moses, who eventually challenges Pharaoh).

However, she has no means of supporting herself and her baby, so she hides baby Horus among the reeds and goes begging all day. One day, returning from begging, she finds baby Horus writhing in pain and near death. Though unable to enter the marshes in his real form, Set had assumed the form of a serpent and bitten the baby. Isis is in despair. Now, feeling all alone in this world -- her father and mother dead, her husband in the netherland, her younger brother Set attacking her at every turn, and her sister Nephthys married to Set -- there appears to be no one who can help her. Isis therefore appeals to all mankind, calling on the marshdwellers and the fishermen, all of whom come immediately to her aid, weeping in sympathy, but powerless to help her against Set's magic. Horus, symbolizing the purity and innocence of the developing true heir, is now contaminated by the poison of the cunning, self-seeking Set. This is the poison that separates everyone who seeks self’s own desires without concern for God's.

Finally, Isis calls on the Most High God to intervene on behalf of everything that is pure and true. The "Boat of Millions of Years" draws level to her and interrupts its journey for her. From out of the barque (boat) descends Thoth. After expressing surprise that her magic is not able to cleanse the child of the poison, he assures her that the power of Ra is at her disposal.

Here Isis is meeting her own karma, for it was she who long ago caused a serpent to bite Ra. Now her treasured child lies poisoned and dying before her and she needs Ra's power to cure him.

Thoth tells Isis that when the barque stopped for her and Horus, the Sun stopped and darkness came over all. The darkness will not be dispelled until the barque moves again and the Sun shines again. She and Thoth realize the significance of the sun's stopping until Horus is cured: it means that if Horus dies, Ra's whole creation will be annihilated and Set, the principle of evil and the consciousness of darkness, will reign forever. Isis wishes that she were Horus herself so that she would not have to see the consequences of his death. Thoth, however, declares that the magical protection enjoyed by Horus will henceforth be equal to that of the Sun. Then, in the name of the Ra, Thoth exorcises the poison from Horus' body, saying that the boat of Ra will stand still, that there will be no food, that the temples will be closed, that misery will never depart from the world, that eternal darkness will reign, that the wells will be dry, that there will be no crops and no vegetation until Horus is cured. This powerful spell of the sun-god Ra, spoken by the moon-god Thoth, conquers the poison, and Isis and all mankind rejoice. Thoth then commends the child into their care, saying that Horus is now the responsibility of all those who live on earth.

This legend repeats the recurring theme of a great and perfect creature who is misguided into activities that lead to its loss -- sometimes the loss is in the form of death, sometimes in banishment, sometimes in consciousness. Then, one who loves the creature gives all their being to rebirth or resurrect the lost one. This often takes the form of impregnating oneself with the seed of the lost one and giving birth to its heir. The young heir to the original creation is always in danger of being poisoned, imprisoned, or misguided by the forces that brought down the original creature. It takes enduring effort to bring the heir to age in one piece. Then, the heir overthrows the deceiver and rules forever -- the perfect creation again, one generation removed, and presumably wiser.

This theme can be found in stories of most cultures on the earth. It is the story of the children of God, who lost their way and must, through great effort and many trials, become heirs to their previous glory and destiny.

In this specific legend, Osiris is the original perfect one. Isis is the mind and will that resurrects him in the seed of the womb of her consciousness. Horus is the heir, always symbolized in the same manner as Ra because he represents the living manifestation of Ra (as did Osiris) and the heir to Ra's creation. Set represents the deceiver, the ego, the self-seeking aspect of every person. It destroys the perfect Osiris, wrestles with the struggling Isis (the mind and will) and poisons the growing Horus. But, enduring, Horus becomes the messiah that overcomes Set's influence, forever -- with a little help from heaven (in the form of Thoth/Hermes and the boat of father Ra).

HORUS, the higher mind and messiah

Because the rays or projections of consciousness from the original consciousness have penetrated many aspects of the darkness, there needs to be a new delineation. Therefore, consciousness is identified in three levels. That which is the closest to the personal self, that which bridges the personal self to the original self, and that which is in the image of the original self, the godling, the son or daughter of Ra. We use the terms conscious, subconscious, and superconscious to identify these levels of the mind.

Cayce On Universal Consciousness

From his deep attunement to the Mind of God, that Universal Consciousness, Edgar Cayce stated that mind is the light, the builder, and the bridge to liberation and enlightenment. Here is his perspective on the mind:

“The Spirit moved ... and there was Light -- Mind. The Light became the light of men.”

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. How? The Mind of God moved, and matter, form, came into being. Mind, then, in God the Father, is the builder. How much more, then, would or should Mind be the builder in the experience of those that have put on Christ or God, in Him, in His coming into the earth?”

“Each entity finds itself in a three-dimensional phase of existence or experience: the world without, the world within, and the mind that may span or bridge the two.”

Mind is the light, the builder, and the bridge between spirit and body.

He explained that life, all life, begins in the spirit, which is the creative force that brings all into existence. Then mind takes this life essence, and builds with it. Finally, the physical is the result: “Mind the builder, the spirit the creator, the material [is] that created. Great truth! Keep it before you.” It certainly is a powerful concept to keep before us. All outer “things” have their origin in the unseen spiritual forces, then find expression in the mind, and ultimately appear out here in the physical. So often we physical beings think that the outer, physical forces are the more powerful. But Cayce frequently encouraged us to accept that “the unseen forces are greater than the seen.” If we want to change something, it must begin in the spirit and the mind.

“That you think, that you put your Mind to work upon, to live upon, to feed upon, to live with, to abide with, to associate with in the mind, that your soul-body becomes! That is the law. That is the destiny.” He expands upon this: “Mind [is] the builder, the appreciator, the paralleler, the drawer of conclusions, the chooser....” And, Cayce says, mind is driven by “the ideal.”

The Ideal is Mind’s Navigator

“As you contemplate, as you meditate, as you look upon the Mind, know the Mind has many windows. And as you look out of your inner self, know where you are looking, [where] you are seeking. What is your ideal? What would you have your mind-body to become?”

In a deep contemplation session on this teaching, my deeper mind saw the ancient boat of Pharaoh, with its twenty-four oarsmen and the navigator’s hut on the bow. As I sought to know the meaning of this imagery, Cayce’s teaching about the twelve nobles before the Throne of God in the Book of the Revelation came to mind. He said that they represent the twelve paired cranial nerves (24) in our own heads! As these nerves turn their attention away from worldly pursuits and toward heavenly ones, they bring a new heaven and a new earth, meaning a new mind, a new body. As I reflected on this, I realized that the twenty-four oarsmen on Pharaoh’s boat represented these same nerves and their ability to bring us across the barrier that the Nile River represented, that barrier between what the Egyptians called “the land of the living,” which is the place of the physically incarnate, and “the land of the dead,” the realm of the spiritually living. I realized that the navigator was indeed the ideal held as we sought to cross the barrier between this world and the spiritual.

“That upon which it [the mind] feeds it becomes. The most important experience of this or any individual entity is to first know what is the ideal -- spiritually. Who and what is your pattern?” Cayce frequently said that Christ is the consciousness and Jesus is the pattern. Jesus, for Cayce, is the ideal pattern for humans to use to build their own mind -- just as one would use a pattern to make clothes from new fabric. Jesus exemplified a human at one with God and making that oneness manifest in his life among others. Cayce often noted that Jesus simply went around doing good according to God’s inner guidance to Him. An ideal way for all of us to live.

We have covered the topic of ideals in detail in a previous issue, but for our purposes here, consider this from Cayce: “What, then, is an ideal? As concerning your fellow man, He gave, ‘As you would that others do to you, do you even so to them’; take no thought, worry not, be not overanxious about the body. For He knows what you have need of. In the place you are, in the consciousness in which you find yourself, is that which is needed today, now, for your greater, your better, your more wonderful unfoldment. This is that attitude of mind that puts away hates, malice, anxiety, jealousy. And it creates in their stead the fruits of the spirit: love, patience, mercy, longsuf-fering, kindness, gentleness. Against these there is no law. They break down barriers; they bring peace and harmony; they bring the outlook upon life of not finding fault because someone ‘forgot,’ someone’s judgment was bad, someone was selfish today. These you can over-look, for so did He.”

Such a state of attitude, of mind, toward life sets up a powerful map for navigating oneself through the day’s challenges and opportunities. This is an ideal, a navigational star by which to guide oneself each day. With this ideal, the mind approaches every obstacle, every crosscurrent, every undertow, and winds its way through them by holding to the ideal, the map set before us as the best way. This is the power of an ideal held by mind as we live life. Yet, as we grow and learn, we may see the need to adjust our ideal. Cayce encouraged us to write our ideals down, but to do so in pencil. As we gain a greater under-standing we see over the next mountain, we gain an increasingly better perspective of the whole truth, the way, and we adjust our ideal accordingly.

Thoughts are Things

Another fundamental Cayce teaching is: “Thoughts are things, and as their currents run they become miracles or crimes in the experiences of individual life.”

For the deeply attuned Cayce, thoughts were as real as actions. In fact, during his readings from the Book of Life, he had to strain to determine whether the person he was reading for had actually done something or had just thought about doing it! “Thoughts are things; just as the Mind is as concrete as a post or tree,” and the Akashic Record, the Book of Life, records them as such.

This is a hard one to hear. The first time I read it, it pained me to think how many times my thoughts had done harm to another and placed a negative influence in the Collective Mind. Watching our thoughts is important.

Watch Self Pass By

Cayce was once asked: “How may I learn to know self as I am known?” He answered: “Being able to literally stand aside and watch self pass by! Take the time to occasionally be sufficiently introspective of that, that may happen in self’s relation to others, to see the reactions of others as to that as was done by self; for no man lives to himself, no man dies to him-self.... Be able, then, to see self as others see you. Stand aside and watch self pass by!” This is a powerful learning tool.

For Cayce, this was not just good mental advice, it was good physical advice: “If the body will watch self and the reactions of the various foods or preparations, and draw a comparison from what may be termed a combination of all the various authorities, then the body will find what is best for self. See?” Want to know the best diet for yourself? Watch how the various foods and cooking methods affect you. This information will be better than anyone else can give you, because it is revealed in your own body.

The Subliminal Mind

Dreams and meditations are two of Cayce most recommended means for fully engaging the power of our minds. According to Cayce, our subliminal mind will engage with our outer mind to review and discuss all influences: “In this there is seen both the action of the subconscious and subliminal mind and the physical mind, reasoning together, as it were, of the past, present, and future conditions as relating to the mental attitude of the entity; for, as is seen in the final analysis of the real Mind, the Builder, and as this is presented in the view of the dreams, the meditations of the entity in those days when the inner consciousness of the entity builded in the mental forces those conditions as would bring the great joy, peace, and happiness to the entity, these, as we see, took on physical forms in the mental aspirations of the entity.”

Seek within ourselves through dreams, meditations, and deep reflections, and our subliminal mind will convey the insights.

Even God will help, as seen in this Cayce reading: “Thus the individual entity finds ... that the first creation of God, the mind, is the way; or the way through which light may come to the entity from the Father. Even as He brought to remembrance the promise, for memory brought in the light of consciousness is the outpouring of spirit. (Memory is the mind of the soul.) Keep not only the body clean, the mind pure, but in the light of the spiritual forces as aid -- keep in at-onement with same.” [The parenthetical statement about memory is Cayce’s.]

Subconscious: The Police

“The only real guide that may be relied upon is that subconscious force that is as the police to the entity, both in the physical, material, and in the spiritual planes. And, as this [the subconscious] will guide and direct the entity, in that same way and manner as the police in their regular capacity ... in the physical life.” What a fascinating concept. Our subconscious is our conscience, our policing power. “That is, the police, the subconscious mind, represent the law that guides, directs, and that way upon which the entity, which any entity, may rely for the enforcement of that which will keep in peace, in war, in any condition, that straight way for the best interest of each and every individual.”

However, even as physical police departments can become corrupt, so can our subconscious police become misdirected by powerful suggestions of self-doubt, self-condemnation. “In the same way and manner as these (the police) may become subject to all of the vicissitudes that are ever present within the conditions in life, so may the subconscious forces, misdirected, misguided, or seeking to belittle the self ... through its experience in the Earth’s plane.” The only way to protect against this misdirection is to hold to a higher ideal that lifts us beyond our self-doubt, self-condemnation. God does not condemn us. God has erected no barrier. Self is the only obstacle to full enlightenment and reunion.

Levels of Consciousness

Cayce identifies three levels of consciousness or dimensions of mind: conscious, subconscious, and superconscious.

Conscious mind is the level that we are most familiar with. It is the level within which our personality and three-dimensional self develops and has much of its activity.

The subconscious is that part of our minds that bridges the outer self with the spiritual self. According to Cayce, the subconscious is both in the body, through the autonomic system, and beyond the body, in the soul realms of telepathy, non-physical life, and timelessness. This mind is the mind of the soul, says Cayce. As the mind of our outer self is the conscious mind and that portion containing our personality, so the subconscious mind contains our developing “individuality,” which Cayce identifies as our true self.

The superconscious level is the portion made in the image of the Creator, as recorded in Genesis. It is that portion of us that is a god or godling, as the ancient Egyptians termed it. Cayce explained that the superconscious is a thing apart from anything earthly, and only makes its presence known or is knowable when the soul-self lifts itself and portions of the conscious mind up into the vast, expansive level that is the superconscious. This is the portion of our being that Cayce referred to when he said that “not only God is God, but self is a part of that oneness.”

To know the superconscious, Cayce says that one must learn to achieve deep levels of meditation. He said that if a dream feels more like a vision than a dream, then it most likely originated from this highest level of consciousness.

At death, the conscious mind is gradually absorbed into the subconscious (the mind of the surviving soul), and the subconscious becomes the operative mind, with the super-conscious now in the position the subconscious held while we were incarnate. Later, upon reincarnation, the subconscious projects another portion of itself into the newly developing outer, three-dimensional mind. Intuitions, “knowings,” and psychic perceptions come from the projected subconscious. Cayce explains that not all of the subconscious is projected; some of it remains in very high levels of perception and activity. But the portion that is in the body maintains the autonomic systems of the body (respiration, circulation, digestion, etc.) and the seven spiritual centers or chakras, which correspond with the seven endocrine glands.

We may feel that we do not know our subconscious soul-self, but we do, and we are comfortable with it. For example, when we are waking with a dream, but notice that our bladder is full and go empty it, only to return to the bed with no recall of the dream, then we have just experienced our two selves. One is the dreaming mind, the subconscious soul-mind, and the other is in charge of the bladder and the central nervous system that moves the body to the bathroom (somatic system). Yet, notice how comfortable we were in the dream state. Notice how we felt that WE were dreaming. That is because this is the true self, and we know it well. Yet, there is a veil that drops when we move outward, a veil that is opaque. The outer self cannot see back through that veil, cannot recall the contents of the dream, because it never had the dream and was only awakened when the physical body needed to move. Now you can see how we can die to this body and this world, and still live, still be active. Sleep, the shadow of death, is that condition in miniature each night.

Mind is our true nature. It is that portion of us that lives forever. What would it be like to live our lives as minds in bodies, rather than bodies with minds? Surprisingly, Cayce considered the mind to be a savior, a redeemer. It is that portion of our being that can mend and restore us. Let’s engage our minds and fully awaken to our spiritual selves.

Aspartame And The FDA

Don't let on that fruits & vegetables improve your health or the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will throw you in the slammer. The FDA threatened 29 cherry growers with confiscation and prosecution for revealing on their websites that cherries contain chemicals that reduce arthritic inflammation. The FDA’s power-grab logic is: Health claims magically transform food into drugs, requiring FDA approval. So don’t say “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” or the FDA will put you away.

Yet, once the FDA blesses a toxic substance, as in the case of Aspartame/NutraSweet/Equal, the toxin can do no wrong and may saturate our food supply unhindered. In 2005, a peer-reviewed, three-year study on 1,800 rats by Dr. Morando Soffritti of the Cancer Research Center of the European Foundation of Oncology & Environmental Sciences confirmed that aspartame is a multi-potential carcinogen, just as the FDA knew and had itself declared some 25 years ago. Yet, the product continues to be sold today in the United States and many other countries.

The FDA Once Fought Aspartame

Twenty-five years ago, a less-compromised FDA fought to keep aspartame off the market because its consumption was linked with brain tumors as well as a long list of other deadly disabilities. In 1977, the FDA even tried to have the manufacturer, G. D. Searle Co., prosecuted for submitting fraudulent tests to get the poison approved. The FDA’s then-Chief Counsel asked the Department of Justice to investigate Searle’s violations of the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FDCA), and the False Reports to the Government Act. This extensive complaint specified the company’s "[w]illful and knowing failure to make reports to the FDA” and its “concealing material facts and making false statements in reports of animal studies.”

In a study performed upon monkeys, Searle fed NutraSweet to seven simians. Five of them had grand-mal seizures and one died outright, for a casualty rate of 86%. In another study, this time performed upon rats, Searle removed tumors and put cancerous animals back in the study. When they died, Searle resurrected them (on paper) and wrote a phony report. 300 rats were supposedly autopsied in 2 days by one lab worker – impossible!

Caught red-handed, what could Searle do? Hire the prosecutors! Sam Skinner and William Conlon reportedly got deals they couldn’t refuse; so they stalled until the statute of limitations was about to expire then switched sides to join the defense lawyers. Put it this way: The Godfather hired the district attorney and the case died – with a lot of us.

Nevertheless, the FDA was determined to act anyway against Searle, so it followed through, and on September 30, 1980, a Board of Inquiry revoked Searle’s petition for approval. (Docket No. 75F-0355)

The NSDA Weighs In

Believe it or not, even the National Soft Drink Association (NSDA) also fought aspartame. The Association’s long protest can be found in the Senate Congressional Record (5/7/85 at pages S5507-15), which argues that the chemical is illegal because Section 402 of the FDCA provides that a food is adulterated if it contains, in whole or in part, a decomposed substance or if it is otherwise unfit for food. Since the NSDA knew aspartame decomposes in soft drinks, it objected that Searle had not demonstrated to a reasonable certainty that aspartame and its degradation products would be safe for use in soft drinks. If anything, the NSDA argued, aspartame is inherently, markedly, and uniquely unstable in an aqueous media and in soft drinks will degrade as a function of temperature and pH.

The NSDA did, however, omit from its protest the point that upon breakdown aspartame drinks contain the toxic substances methyl (wood) alcohol, formaldehyde, and formic acid (fire ant venom). Stack a rack of diet soda in front of a hot Tucson, Arizona Texaco station and you are making formaldehyde cocktails. Fifteen years later, the Trocho Study in Barcelona showed that formaldehyde accumulates in the cells and damages DNA. Dr. H. J. Roberts, in his medical text Aspartame Disease, calls it pre-embalming!

Rumsfeld to the Rescue

But Searle had a dynamic CEO named Don Rumsfeld who promised that he would get it on the market. Four months after the revocation of Searle’s petition, he became Reagan’s Secretary of Defense. The day after the inauguration, a new FDA Commissioner, Arthur Hayes, was appointed; and he did the dirty deed that no previous Commissioner would stoop to doing when he approved aspartame over the objections of his own Public Board of Inquiry.

Several scientists, who had been overruled when aspartame was approved, resigned in protest. They even alleged that Searle had fabricated results in the testing submitted.

Later, the FDA Commissioner scurried out of his position while under a conflict-of-interest investigation to become a consultant to Searle’s public-relations agency. He has not said a peep since. Who ever heard of a public-relations guy who wouldn’t talk? Hey, there, Mr. Government Man, we’ll make you rich if you bless our plan!

By now the FDA was truly turned, becoming in effect Monsanto’s Branch Office in Washington, D.C. Today, the Agency gets more than half of its money from the industries it regulates, serving them instead of us. Said the late FDA toxicologist, Dr. Adrian Gross, in his congressional testimony, "the cancer causing potential of aspartame is a matter established way beyond any reasonable doubt.” Yet the FDA ignored its own scientist. If the FDA itself elects to violate the law, then who is left to protect the health of the public?

Yet Doubts Persisted

In l986, the Community Nutrition Institute petitioned the FDA to ban aspartame because it found that many persons were having seizures and going blind from the free methyl alcohol. The FDA refused.

In 1987, the late Dr. Jacqueline Verrett (the FDA toxicologist who had investigated Searle) told Congress that Searle’s studies were built on a foundation of sand and that the flawed tests submitted to get FDA approval were a "disaster" that should have been thrown out.

Aspartame/NutraSweet/Equal hit the market, America got sicker, and an avalanche of consumer complaints commenced. The FDA diligently counted and classified these into 92 categories including sexual dysfunction, blindness, four types of seizures and memory loss, and death. Aspartame complaints exceeded those for all other food additives combined. Barely one percent of reactions are reported, so the 10,000-plus complaints actually represent a hidden multitude of injured Americans. Overwhelmed, the FDA began sending the complaints to the AIDS Hotline. Then, still unsatisfied, the FDA slammed the complaint window shut in 1996 and now denies they ever had a list of thousands of complaints. The product, they say, is safe as rain.

Thus, our government watchdog became industry’s lapdog with full knowledge of the toxicity, carcinogenicity, and neurodegenerative disabilities this poison brings to the table. Meanwhile, three FDA Commissioners and a parade of its lower executives landed jobs in the aspartame industry. Three Congressional hearings were held because of this outrage. Senator Howard Metzenbaum introduced Senate Bill S.1557, requiring an aspartame moratorium and directing the National Institute of Health to conduct studies on problems appearing in the population from its consumption, including its effects upon the brain chemistry of the unborn and children. Unfortunately, the bill never made it out of committee.

Dr. H. J. Roberts, identified in 1984 as the Best Doctor in the United States by a medical journal, publicly predicted that unless aspartame were removed, we would have a global plague of disabilities and fatalities in 5-10 years. A true prophet, he authored the 1,038-page encyclopedic medical text, Aspartame Disease: An Ignored Epidemic with hundreds of case histories. In all, Roberts has authored four books on aspartame.

In 2002, I filed a Citizen’s Petition with the FDA, which by law they must answer within six months. After a long delay exceeding six months, I re-contacted the FDA, only to get a brush-off response, essentially saying the Agency had more important things to do. To my mind, though, what could be more important than complying with the law, more important than prohibiting the toxin in children’s products or warning pregnant women, or more important than saving lives? The FDA cannot answer me because of the incontrovertible evidence that exists showing that aspartame is poisonous.

Children Are Especially At Risk

Dr. John Olney, founder of the neuroscience field called excitotoxicity, testified on the damage of aspartame to the brains of children: "If a human infant or child sustained hypothalamic damage from glutamate or aspartate, delayed sequelae such as obesity and subtle disturbances in the neuroendocrine status of the individual are the types of effects to be expected and it would not be until adolescence or perhaps early adulthood that such effects would become evident." Now we are plagued with the obesity epidemic he prophesied.

Dr. Olney warned of the damage that this product would do to the unborn and to children. He said that the FDA acknowledged "aspartame had been shown to induce brain damage in neonatal animals” but FDA dismissed the neurotoxicity as irrelevant on grounds that the approved uses of aspartame don’t include feeding it to newborn humans. Yet aspartame can be found in prescription and over-the-counter pediatric drugs and in pediatric vitamins. Nursing babies receive this poison from mothers who breastfeed. How gruesome! The recent plague of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), autism, and birth defects manifest the neurologic devastations of aspartame.

Supporting this view, Dr. Louis Elsas, Emory Professor of Pediatrics and Genetics, testified in a congressional hearing that aspartame is a teratogen (causes birth defects) and a neurotoxin.

When the Miami Herald quoted the Calorie Control Council, a front group recommending NutraSweet for women during pregnancy and those with liver disease and phenylketonuria, renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylock wrote, “this is the most serious breach of public trust in the history of this nation." The Feingold Association, an organization of ADD people, says the term ADD first came into use around 1981, which curiously enough is when aspartame was approved. All of Drs. Roberts’ and Olney's prophecies have come to pass: the damage to the unborn and our children is horrific.

Meanwhile, NutraSweet’s manufacturer pumps its propaganda pushing this product upon pregnant women and nursing mothers through, at best, an uninformed media. Aspartame was Monsanto’s Cash Cow in thousands of foods, the queen of sweeteners. Coca Cola displayed the NutraSweet swirl on Diet Coke. And little blue packets of Equal adorned millions of tables in the Western world. Every day in every way business got better and better.

Trouble in Paradise

But the “NutraTanic” has hit an iceberg. Europe’s largest producer, Holland Sweetener, will jump overboard this December because they are losing money on the product. On top of that, Merisant – America’s top producer – lost 29% of their United States sales in 2004 and 2005 and is upside down, capsized, with $100 million more debt than assets. Davy Jones, make room! Two things have brought this well-deserved calamity, one good and one evil:

ACTIVISM. Hundreds of courageous doctors, publishers, broadcasters, victims, and generous volunteers have for years sounded the alarm that aspartame is death. This unrelenting persistence has persuaded tens, perhaps hundreds, of millions to escape this poison. The word has gone to the ends of the earth, a collective shout that billions of dollars in advertising and campaign contributions cannot suffocate.

SPLENDA. As the word has spread about aspartame, this newer chemical construct has claimed first place among tabletop toxins. Splenda is a tri-chlorinated sugar, which releases chlorine into our bodies, destroying the immune system and many other vital functions. To my mind, trading Splenda for aspartame is swapping arsenic for cyanide. Be warned.

Clearly, aspartame has seen better days, as shown by the recent comments made by a politician who has carefully studied the public-health impact of this chemical.

The Measure of the Enemy

Several months ago I had the pleasure of meeting with New Mexican State Senator Gerald Ortiz y Pino, who sponsored the recent New Mexico Senate aspartame bill. In trying to limit the unhealthy impact of aspartame, he made the following points:

"Nothing surprises me anymore when it comes to the corrosive influence of money on our public policy. I'm not just talking about the shenanigans inside the beltway of our nation's capitol that Congress is for sale to the highest bidder [, which] has unfortunately become a practically accepted tenet of the American belief system. So accepted is it that the astounding arrogance and venality being revealed by the current scandals in the District of Columbia scarcely produce raised eyebrows, let alone outrage.

"But I'm not just talking about that... Instead, today I'd like to zero-in on the pressure applied to our third level of representative government, the carryings-on that occur in the halls of State all its branches.

"And from among at least a dozen recent, painful examples of how big business manages to protect itself from such wet-blanket considerations as the good of the public, I'd like to select one as a representative: the continued approval of the reliance by processed food and beverage manufacturers on the chemical aspartame.

"As an artificial sweetener, one now being added to some 6,000 products, it is difficult for most Americans to not consume aspartame daily. Its safety would seem to be of critical importance to millions of us. But any discussion of this topic has been postponed in New Mexico indefinitely – through influence exerted by representatives hired by the Japanese manufacturer of aspartame, the Ajinomoto Corporation.

"Those well-connected hired hands managed, in December, to frighten the State Environmental Improvement Board (EIB) into backing off of the public hearings into aspartame's safety that they had originally agreed to conduct this coming summer. They managed this delay by challenging the authority of the State of New Mexico to review anything already approved by the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and by threatening to sue the State if we tried to do so. . . . [They also quashed] all attempts to discuss the matter during the just-concluded State Legislature.

"There was one hearing on the subject and it drew significant numbers of the industry lobbyists, all of whom asserted the same party line: The substance is perfectly safe; the Federal Government has looked at it carefully, and who the heck is New Mexico, anyway, to raise any questions about it?

"The committee succumbed, and turned down the measure to ban aspartame 7-2. That half-hour hearing was the total discussion of the matter this year in the public arena in New Mexico, unless the EIB board changes its mind and decides to call Ajinomoto's bluff by going ahead and holding a hearing.

"Twenty-five years [after approval of aspartame], the evidence is mounting that our growing incidence of brain tumors, organ cancers, and neurological diseases has followed the introduction of so many artificially-created additives and chemicals in our food. It's only a matter of time until even Ajinomoto's money won't be able to block the unavoidable link between these unnecessary products and our decline in health.

"When that happens, as it finally did to tobacco and lead and other heavy metals found in gasoline, we will act. The sad thing is that thousands of deaths and ruined lives will occur between now and then. One of the cruel ironies to aspartame is that it was supposed to create sugar-free soft drinks for the benefit of diabetics. Since its introduction, the incidence of diabetes has soared. Some critics link the two.”

Efforts to ban aspartame continue around the world. Stephen Fox has worked tirelessly in New Mexico and now New Mexico State Senator Ortiz y Pino has faxed President Bush to pull the plug on aspartame and his letter has also been signed by various members of the New Mexico Legislative Health and Human Services Committee.

Aspartame interacts with drugs and vaccines causing thousands of deaths, but instead of looking for the problem Congress has passed a new law exonerating the pharmaceutical industry from any liability. In the United Kingdom, the Honorable Roger Williams, a member of Parliament, has demanded a ban. And Robin Goodwin petitioned for a ban in the Falklands after his wife sustained a brain tumor and his daughter suffered seizures for 18 years until he found out aspartame was the culprit, and removal stopped the problem. Not wanting to wait for delays due to politics, he simply wrote every single citizen of the Falklands and aspartame products now rot on the shelves.

Congress has failed us in three congressional hearings. Senators like Orin Hatch were given money by Monsanto. Now, Congress has let us down again, giving the pharmaceutical industry a green card to be unconcerned with disability and death because they are no longer liable for any such injuries. Congress should instead echo the courageous words of State Senator Ortiz y Pino, who put the problem of lobbyists and aspartame in vivid perspective.

At the same time, consumer organizations must educate the World as a counter to the blind eye that the FDA has turned to the issue. The FDA has all too easily adopted an anti-health position on aspartame ever since it became the pharmaceutical industry’s Washington Branch Office.

If Congress has any interest in the health and welfare of this nation, as well as the World itself, it must seriously consider this issue and take action. Literally every day counts. Congress must wake up, turn away from the debasing effect of the pharmaceutical industry’s money, and make the health interests of individuals Congress’ paramount concern.

Dr. Betty Martini is the founder of the worldwide volunteer force, Mission Possible World Health International, which is committed to removing aspartame from our food supply. She has an honorary Doctor of Humanities degree for the work she has done. With 22 years of experience in the medical field, Dr. Martini is uniquely qualified to research and write about aspartame. While working with a hematologist, she supplied the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) with reports on leukemia, which CDC said, were more than all the case histories submitted by the entire Emory University Hospital system combined. And in l970, Dr. Martini established a model for the nation by creating Physicians on Call, a network of five Emergency Care clinics in Atlanta, Georgia, staffed with medical doctors 7 days/24 hours. Services were without cost to the indigent. She also speaks frequently on nationwide radio hookups for talk programs throughout the country. Dr. Martini has three grown children, two sons and a daughter. She may be reached at e-mail address:

Mobile Phones Damage DAN

Mobile Phone Radiation Harms DNA, New Study Finds
Friday December 22, 2006 (0353 PST)

ISLAMABAD: Radio waves from mobile phones harm body cells and damage DNA in laboratory conditions, according to a new study majority-funded by the European Union, researchers said on Monday.
The so-called Reflex study, conducted by 12 research groups in seven European countries, did not prove that mobile phones are a risk to health but concluded that more research is needed to see if effects can also be found outside a lab.

The $100 billion a year mobile phone industry asserts that there is no conclusive evidence of harmful effects as a result of electromagnetic radiation. About 650 million mobile phones are expected to be sold to consumers this year, and over 1.5 billion people around the world use one.

The research project, which took four years and which was coordinated by the German research group Verum, studied the effect of radiation on human and animal cells in a laboratory. After being exposed to electromagnetic fields that are typical for mobile phones, the cells showed a significant increase in single and double-strand DNA breaks. The damage could not always be repaired by the cell. DNA carries the genetic material of an organism and its different cells. "There was remaining damage for future generation of cells," said project leader Franz Adlkofer.

This means the change had procreated. Mutated cells are seen as a possible cause of cancer. The radiation used in the study was at levels between a Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) of between 0.3 and 2 watts per kilogram. Most phones emit radio signals at SAR levels of between 0.5 and 1 W/kg. SAR is a measure of the rate of radio energy absorption in body tissue, and the SAR limit recommended by the International Commission of Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection is 2 W/kg. The study also measured other harmful effects on cells.

Because of the lab set-up, the researchers said the study did not prove any health risks. But they added that "the genotoxic and phenotypic effects clearly require further studies ... on animals and human volunteers." Adlkofer advised against the use of a mobile phone when an alternative fixed line phone was available, and recommended the use of a headset connected to a cellphone whenever possible.

"We don't want to create a panic, but it is good to take precautions," he said, adding that additional research could take another four or five years. Previous independent studies into the health effects of mobile phone radiation have found it may have some effect on the human body, such as heating up body tissue and causing headaches and nausea, but no study that could be independently repeated has proved that radiation had permanent harmful effects.

None of the world's top six mobile phone vendors could immediately respond to the results of the study. In a separate announcement in Hong Kong, where consumers tend to spend more time talking on a mobile phone than in Europe, a German company called G-Hanz introduced a new type of mobile phone which it claimed had no harmful radiation, as a result of shorter bursts of the radio signal.

Sugar Feeds Cancer Growth

Every doctor learned back in medical school all about Otto Warburg's discovery; a discovery of humongous proportions, because way back in the thirties Otto discovered the main biochemical cause of cancer, or what differentiates a cancer cell from a normal, healthy cell. So big a discovery was this, that Otto Warburg was awarded the Nobel Prize.
Cancer has only one prime cause. It is the replacement of normal oxygen respiration of the body's cells by an anaerobic [i.e., oxygen-deficient] cell respiration. -Dr. Otto Warburg

But what else does Warburg's discovery tell us. First off, it tells us that cancer metabolizes much differently than normal cells. Normal cells need oxygen. Cancer cells despise oxygen. In fact, oxygen therapy is a favorite among many of the alternative clinics we've researched.

Another thing this tells us is that cancer metabolizes through a process of fermentation.

If you've ever made wine, you'll know that fermentation requires sugar.

The metabolism of cancer is approximately 8 times greater than the metabolism of normal cells.

Okay, so here is what we can put together knowing the above: The body is constantly overworked trying to feed this cancer. The cancer is constantly on the verge starvation and thus constantly asking the body to feed it. When the food supply is cut off, the cancer begins to starve unless it can make the body produce sugar to feed itself.

The wasting syndrome, cachexia, is the body producing sugar from proteins (you heard it right, not from carbohydrates or fats, but from proteins) in a process called glycogenesis. This sugar feeds the cancer. The body finally dies of starvation, trying to feed the cancer.

Now, knowing that one's cancer needs sugar, does it make sense to feed it sugar? Does it make sense to have a high carbohydrate diet?

The reason Food Therapies for cancer even exist today (beyond the fact that they work) is because someone once saw the connection between sugar and cancer. There are many food therapies, but not a single one allows many foods high in carbohydrates and not a single one allows sugars, BECAUSE SUGAR FEEDS CANCER.

Why doesn't your physician tell you this? Hard to tell. Maybe your doctor feels it is his job to cure your cancer, not yours. Maybe because your doctor learned about Warburg, but never put the rest together, never placed nutrition into the equation. Maybe because your physician didn't study nutrition. Heck, as late as 1978, the AMA's official position (found in the Congressional Record) was that nutrition had nothing to do with disease.

However, those who've paid attention to this sugar craving cancer stuff have come up with some remarkable therapies for cancer. Laetrile is just one. Hydrazine Sulfate, which stops the process of glycogenesis in greater than 50% of all patients with cachexia is another.

The Philadelphia Experiment And Ascension


Website of David Wilcox

The effects of the Philadelphia Experiment can demonstrate the fact that at least partial knowledge of the Global Grid was available to the insiders already. The Philadelphia Experiment, as many of us already know, was a case where the United States apparently dematerialized an entire ship at the port of Norfolk, Virginia, transported it up to Penn’s Landing Area near Philadelphia, and then brought it back to Norfolk again, in 1943. The total distance of the trip exceeded 400 miles.

Again, there are many different sources that confirm the reality of this having happened, and it is the lack of study on behalf of most skeptics that would allow them to brush it aside. The most recent reports from Lt. Col. Philip Corso, reprinted on Dr. Steven Greer's CSETI website, indicate that almost everything in the description of the Philadelphia Experiment was true, except that in order to protect the story, a different ship was used than the one normally described to the public. The actual ship was a minesweeper, not a destroyer. Therefore, it makes sense that when aging crewmembers of the Destroyer Escort U.S.S. Eldridge were queried about this, they remembered nothing of the sort. Although the evidence now suggests that the Eldridge was not the ship, we are told that the experiment itself apparently did occur. What we are told is that this ship was made invisible and quickly transported by an extraordinarily powerful, pulsating magnetic field that it generated on board. This magnetic field was the product of several tons of specialized electronic equipment that had been installed within it.

To those who ignore this aspect of the "big picture" of UFOlogy / metaphysics / government cover-ups, we need to remember a few facts surrounding the event. If the ship had simply remained safe and secure in the harbor as the Navy claimed, there is no apparent reason for the families of several crewmembers being told that their loved ones, the sailors from the crew, had died that night. There doesn't seem to be a plausible explanation for why the entire rest of the crew involved received discharges from the Navy for being "medically unfit." Furthermore, the death of Morris Ketchum Jessup, a U Michigan astronomy and mathematics professor investigating the affair, seems a little too coincidental to be a "suicide." In many ways, his death reads similar to the now-famous Vince Foster case associated with the Clinton Whitewater investigations.

Jessup, born in 1900, had an interesting career. While completing his doctorate at University of Michigan, he discovered and cataloged many binary stars in the night sky. His first decent job, caught during the Depression, was with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to seek out sources of crude rubber in the Amazon. This job in turn led to archeological expeditions into the Mayan ruins in Mesoamerica, where he worked as a photographer. He was fascinated by what he saw, and progressed onward to Peru to study the ruins of the pre-Incan cultures there.

By studying the megalithic size and mathematical exactness of the ruins, Jessup concluded that the only plausible explanation for their construction was some sort of levitation process. He proposed that this must have been done by a non-terrestrial influence, a race of intelligent beings with access to flying craft that could levitate the blocks. By proposing this theory, he was ousted by employers and colleagues, having become an early proponent of the "Ancient Astronauts" theory.

Fueled by his own savings, Jessup stayed in the area, and began studying the enigmatic craters near the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico that are now cited as evidence of the asteroid collision that killed the dinosaurs. Jessup eventually ran out of money and came back to the United States in 1954 to be able to raise funds to continue his research. He soon realized that the flying saucer phenomenon that everyone was talking about was indeed plausible, as he had already uncovered evidence that suggested it. He was most interested in determining their methods of propulsion, since they disobeyed all known laws of physics.

Jessup had already completed his first manuscript by January of 1955, based on this new research; he called it The Case for the UFO, and sold it to Bantam Books. It did quite well in bookstores and was printed in paperback by the fall of the same year. After the book was out on the shelves, Jessup received a series of letters from Carlos Allende, alias Carl Allen. The letters were written in several different colors of ink, and many words within the sentences were capitalized for no apparent reason. It was obvious that Allende was not the most literate person in the world, but his story was certainly a fantastic one: he had been present at the Norfolk Docks to witness the disappearance of a ship, erroneously referred to as the U.S.S. Eldridge, during the "Philadelphia Experiment."

Allende commented on some of the information in Case for the UFO where Jessup had encouraged the public to put legal pressure on the government, in order to demand research into Einstein's Unified Field Theory. Allende was quite angry about Jessup's desire to do this, because of the harmful effects that this theory had on human beings as a result of its testing in the Philadelphia Experiment. You can imagine that for any planetary society, the early days of teleportation must be quite difficult, costing innocent, brave and pioneering lives. Although Einstein claimed to have never finished his Unified Field Theory, Allende opens up the letter by telling Jessup that Einstein had indeed finished it, and had retracted the work due to the effects that it might have on people. Those effects were later demonstrated by the Philadelphia Experiment. Says Allende:

[Einstein's] Later computations, done strictly for his own edification & amusement, upon cycles of Human Civilization & Progress compared to the Growth of Mans General over-all Character Was enough to Horrify Him. Thus, we are told today that the Theory was "Incomplete."

Dr. B. Russell asserts privately that It is complete. He also says that Man is Not Ready for it & Shan't be until after W.W. III. Nevertheless, "Results" of my friend Dr. Franklin Reno, were used… The Result was & stands today as Proof that The Unified Field Theory to a certain extent is correct. Beyond that certain extent No Person in his right senses, or having any senses at all, Will evermore dare to go.

Next, we will examine Allende's observations of the field that was generated and what happened within it:

The Field Was effective in an oblate spheroidal shape, extending one hundred yards (More or Less, due to Lunar position and Latitude) out from each beam of the ship. Any Person Within that sphere became vague in form BUT He too observed those Persons aboard that ship as though they too were of the same state, yet were walking upon nothing. Any person without that sphere could see Nothing save the clearly Defined shape of the Ships Hull in the Water. PROVIDING of course, that that person was just close enough to see yet, just barely outside of that field.

If we take Allende's letters as being factual, it would seem from the above paragraph that there was a fundamental difference between what would happen when you saw a physical object in that state as opposed to a living human being. People in the field "became vague in form but… [they could see each other, even though the others looked like they] were walking on nothing." This suggests a fundamental difference between a human entity and an inanimate object when this "dimensional projection" is made. Other reports of those who have traveled out-of-body have reported seeing other entities as being vague in form. Inanimate matter like the ship's hull and deck may simply not be visible in higher realms.

According to Allende, this experiment apparently had a quite devastating effect on the men involved in it. The men got stuck between dimensions, as it were, and some were unable to find their way back to the physical plane. In the worst-case scenario, some of these men actually burst into flames. These poor souls, if rescued, described the in-between feeling as Pure Hell, where they were stuck in a seemingly eternal Slowness and did not know how to escape. According to Allende, there were various levels of this "freeze," illustrated in the following verbatim quote:

A Highly complicated Piece of Equipment Had to be constructed in order to Unfreeze those who became "True Froze" or "Deep Freeze" subjects. Usually a "Deep Freeze" Man goes Mad, Stark Raving, Gibbering, Running MAD, if His "freeze" is for More than a Day in our time.

I speak of TIME for DEEP "Frozen Men" are Not aware of Time as We know it. The are Like Semi-comatoese person, who Live, breathe, Look & feel but still are unaware of So Utterly Many things as to constitute a "Nether World" to them. A Man in an ordinary common Freeze is aware of Time, sometimes acutely so. Yet They are Never aware of Time precisely as you and I are aware of it. The First "Deep Freeze" As I said took 6 months to Rectify. It also took over 5 Million Dollars worth of Electronic equipment & a Special Ship Berth.

It is worth speculating as to why these psychological effects occurred when the men shifted in their matter phase. We have descriptions of men going "gibbering, running mad," combined with the idea of "semi-comatose [people] who… are unaware of so utterly many things as to constitute [their entrance into some sort of a] "Nether World." When we look at this from the perspective of abnormal psychology, what we seem to have are effects similar to schizophrenia.

One of the things that comes across in Allende's reports is the feeling of a "Slowness." It is very interesting to note here that reports from purported extraterrestrial sources invariably refer to the discomfort of “compressing” and “slowing down” into our own frequency. Thus, it seems that the soldiers were being transported to a higher frequency, and thus were going “too fast” for Earth, their physical bodies still stuck here in the "molasses." So, what was only a minute to us could have been the equivalent of one subjective week of time to them. The prolonged efforts of the soldiers to rub the skin of a "frozen" person may have only taken effect after days or months of their own subjective, relative time.

Furthermore, the energetic results of this magnetic field on the body seem to have altered the consciousness units making them up. One can certainly speculate that the very intense, pulsating magnetic field actually increased the natural frequency of the conscious energies that made up their bodies. Once the "consciousness units" were exposed to those higher frequencies, they became configured to accommodate them, in a similar fashion as the spherical shape of the Earth accommodates them. What probably started out as nothing more than an experiment in magnetic “stealth” cloaking turned into a multidimensional disaster.

Most people who have studied this account are familiar with the regional Philadelphia newspaper article from October 1943 entitled "Strange Circumstances Surround Tavern Brawl." The article reads as follows:

Several city police officers responding to a call to aid members of the Navy Shore Patrol in breaking up a tavern brawl near the U.S. Navy docks here last night got something of a surprise when they arrived on the scene to find the place empty of customers. According to a pair of very nervous waitresses, the Shore Patrol had arrived first and cleared the place out - but not before two of the sailors involved allegedly did a disappearing act. "They just sort of vanished into thin air… right there," reported one of the frightened hostesses, "and I ain't been drinking either!" At that point, according to her account, the Shore Patrol proceeded to hustle everyone out of the place in short order.

A subsequent chat with the local police precinct left no doubts as to the fact that some sort of general brawl had indeed occurred in the vicinity of the dockyards at about eleven o' clock last night, but neither confirmation nor denial of the stranger aspects of the story could be immediately obtained. One reported witness succinctly summed up the affair by dismissing it as nothing more than "A lot of hooey from them daffy dames down there." Who, he went on to say, were just looking for some free publicity.

Damage to the tavern was estimated to be in the vicinity of six hundred dollars.

Then, we also want to consider an excerpt from another of Allende's letters. Although written in all caps, we have converted it to normal "sentence case:"

How would you like to actually speak to (or some of the men) a man who was once an invisible human being? (May become so in front of your very eyes if he turns off his hip-set.)

From the newspaper article, we can see some possible evidence suggesting a public display of the personal effects of this magnetic / dimensional shift. It is certainly interesting to note the fact that the Shore Patrol apparently cleared everyone out of the bar very soon after it started happening. Then, in Allende's excerpt, there is a suggestion that a "hip set" which ostensibly radiated some sort of stabilizing field was being worn by some of the men to prevent this from happening again. This seems to indicate that certain magnetic frequencies could possibly prevent the men from "disappearing."

But exactly how could these men have disappeared when they were no longer in the field itself? Here is one possible theoretical answer.

We have already discussed how neatly the octave theory of dimensions fits into the idea of the Holographic Universe. One of the properties of a holographic plate is that no matter how small of a piece you cut off of it, the same identical image will show up when laser light is shined on it. The image might be faded, but it still emerges nonetheless. Therefore, part of the holographic theory is that patterns can be stored as information, much in the same respect that DNA stores a blueprint of the body. The new magnetic field, with its massive strength, could have changed the hologram of the consciousness units making up the physical body. They received a modified geometric pattern that was somewhere between an octahedron and a tetrahedron, probably asymmetrical in design.

As Seth explained to us in previous chapters, the consciousness units are formed by emotional energy. Thus, the presence of strong emotions, perhaps similar to the panic that they felt when their bodies first assumed this configuration during the Experiment, could trigger a pattern memory within the units themselves. Returning to their in-between spot might require only a greater input of emotional energy for the units in the body complex to expand into it. Indeed, the Ra Material starts to make sense when it says that early fourth-density souls have not yet learned to camouflage themselves from the third. They might not have enough personal power to constantly maintain the new configuration, and thus occasionally slip back to the former pattern that their Ascended bodies remember.

In David Hatcher Childress’s Anti-Gravity and the World Grid, our main source for this information, Harry Osoff shows that the path the ship traveled in was precisely the same as one of the lines of energy in the Global Grid. William Becker and Bethe Hagens, whom we will meet later, referred to this line as "Grid Line #18."

Osoff goes on to show how the actual points of arrival and departure fit in beautifully to many of Cathie’s natural Earth resonant frequencies, such as the speed of light and the electron spacing in the nucleus. [Interested readers should refer to Childress’s book for more precise details.] Thus, the magnetic force literally transformed all the consciousness units that made up the ship into a higher level of vibration. Once having done this, the ship no longer had physical mass, and could then ride the flowing energy of the magnetic field, the same as Cathie’s UFOs did. BUT, it was very important that it needed to be done in the right place on the Earth if it was going to work at all.

This natural energy flow could be likened to a current in the ocean, and as we will see, it is at least partially responsible for these currents and many other things including weather. Thus, a natural energetic current carried the now higher-frequency ship across the grid line to the next nexus point in Philadelphia, where a similar machine must have been constructed. Perhaps this materialization was incomplete, and the ship was still on a slightly higher frequency level, although visible to shocked onlookers. It would then have been possible to reverse the magnetic fields between the two machines in the ship berths and draw the ship back across the same grid line, overcoming its natural cyclical flow.

Another interesting point was that a green mist was associated with the dematerialization process. This green mist was also seen surrounding objects in the Bermuda Triangle in the books of Charles Berlitz. The Triangle is another area of mysterious disappearances, and as we are about to see, a major grid point. Interestingly, in his recent book Notes from the Cosmos, Gordon Michael Scallion again describes the same green mist as relating to the manifestation of spiritual forces. In a vision that he reported on the Art Bell show, he described a sudden change in the Sun’s energy, which he perceived as a green mist that descended on the Earth and rendered all the electronic equipment unusable.

At this point, the careful reader should see the connection that we are making here. Referring back to an earlier chapter, the Seth entity said that the air itself is made up of these consciousness units, which are the energetic forms that make up all matter. We also know that these geometric forms represent sound and color frequencies. We also know that our own dimension would be the yellow frequency and the fourth would be the green. Thus, what we see here in this green color is the change in the vibratory rate of the consciousness units themselves that make up the air. Scallion’s sources appear to have hit the nail right on the head.

When we apply this new knowledge to Cathie and the Global Grid, we can see that the Philadelphia Experiment was clearly trying to use this hyperdimensional force of energy. We can see that since magnetism is another form that the consciousness units can take, it can be used to essentially force the natural third-density formations into assuming the fourth-density vibration. All one would need to do is assemble the appropriate geometric energy field. Obviously, there are problems with this, as the harmonics were not pure enough to insure a clean transition into the fourth dimension. There were great human complications, owing to the fact that the men were not actually contained within any one dimension during the experiment, but stuck in a halfway point between two.

It is probably safe to say that this type of technology could be perfected, in order that such distortions would be lessened or eliminated. Even then, there is a serious question as to whether the souls of the people going could actually handle the vibrations, if they were not “ready” for them. According to Ra, you don't go into the higher realms unless you are spiritually capable of handling the intensity -- otherwise it can literally destroy you.

Ra also indicates that with the right energy or focus of consciousness, higher-level entities can use such a technology to “downgrade” their vibrations and become visible to beings that normally could not perceive them. Thus, UFOs mysteriously appear and disappear in the sky, and abductees or contactees are floated through walls or see the beings doing so. Indeed, in one book there is a story of a woman getting a violent cut on her leg from bumping into her automobile, which the visitors had rendered invisible to her. They explained that they could do this by thought alone, but they had machines designed to do the work for them.

The Philadelphia Experiment crudely showed us that the idea of a dimensional shift is not at all outside the realm of possibility. Magnetic fields that vibrated at the proper frequency caused major changes in all physical matter within that space. The Sun, being such a large object, obviously has a magnetic / gravitational / consciousness field much larger than that created locally in the Philadelphia Experiment - after all, the Sun holds all the planets in place. As the sunspots can be shown to cause magnetic disturbance including solar and terrestrial pole reversals, the Great Cycle of the Sun obviously has massive implications for the magnetic fields surrounding the earth.

We are already seeing how these energies manifest through geometry, and how easily their frequencies can be changed. Such frequency modulations can actually render a physical body invisible, by translating it into a higher mode of vibration. This was done not only in the case of the Philadelphia Experiment, but also in such modes as the Ascension of Jesus. There are also numerous cases in Eastern faiths of mystics and yogis spontaneously leaving the physical plane in a flash of light, leaving behind a lump of clothing. In the Cayce readings, the Atlantean priest Ra-Ta is said to have used the natural energy spirals harnessed by the Great Pyramid to ascend in a similar fashion.


The apparent suicide of Jessup came after he had contacted government officials, when he got a copy of his own book mailed to him with many liner notes written inside. Further analysis demonstrated that Allende was the author of the liner notes. These notes revealed an extensive knowledge of the UFO field, containing many facts that were never published. From this information, we can see that even though his writing skills were not the greatest, Allende obviously had high enough clearance to have learned something about the UFO phenomenon from inside sources. What is most interesting is that some of Allende's short comments show that "they" were aware of the Global Grid. The most interesting of these words include:

- "Little Men"

- "Gravity Fields"

- "Measure Markers"

- "Scout Ships"

- "Sheets of Diamonds"

- "Cosmic Rays"

- "Clear Talk"

- "Telepathing"

- "Nodes"

- "Vortices"

- "Magnetic net"

If we look at how a few of these terms fit together, we can infer that Allende was aware of a gravity field on Earth, composed of a magnetic net of nodes and vortices that appeared to look like a sheet of diamonds. Cosmic Rays had an effect on this gravity field, and scout ships would drop in from time to time to repair Cathie's aerials, or measure markers. The way that these little men piloting the scout ships would telepath would be by a process where you hear the words in your mind, known as clear talk.

All of the above data fits very nicely with the information now coming out about the UFO phenomenon in the recent past. The clear indications of the knowledge of the Global Grid are very apparent. So, it would seem that through work like Cathie's, many government officials did know exactly of the Grid's existence and of how to utilize it.

So what we can see here is that the geometric theory of dimensions is starting to make more and more sense. We can see plausible, although unpopular, examples that these energy fields do exist and have real, measurable effects. In the next chapter, we will round out our ideas about the global grid from an entirely different perspective: that of Carl Munck as well as Richard Hoagland, whom we started with in Chapter 13. This will help our geometric theory stand on its own two feet, and solidify once and for all that these energetic forces do really exist throughout the entire solar system.

The Ten Dimensional Universe

Are we products of a cosmic accident?

India Daily Technology Team

The big bang was on. Cosmic level explosion set in the expansion and throwing of stars and galaxies in all different direction. But now scientists understand that our physical universe started with ten dimensions.

The cosmic explosion which took place 15 to 20 billion years ago, which sent the stars and galaxies hurling in all directions. The universe originally started as a perfect 10 dimensional universe with nothing in it. In the beginning, the universe was completely empty. However, this 10 dimensional universe was not stable.

The original 10 dimensional space-time finally “cracked” into two pieces, a four and a six dimensional universe. The universe made the “quantum leap” to another universe in which six of the 10 dimensions collapsed and curled up into a tiny ball, allowing the remaining four dimensional universe to explode outward at an enormous rate. The four dimensional universe (our world) expanded rapidly, creating the Big Bang, while the six dimensional universe wrapped itself into a tiny ball and shrunk down to infinitesimal size. This explains the origin of the Big Bang. The cur rent expansion of the universe, which we can measure with our instruments, is a rather minor aftershock of a more cataclysmic collapse: the breaking of a 10 dimensional universe into a four and six dimensional universe.
The breaking of a ten dimensional into a four and six dimensional universe was really a cataclysmic collapse – an implosion that cannot be described in words. After that the aftershock of that collapse – the big bang happened that is still making part of the Universe expand.

The parallel universes have ten or more dimensions. For some reason our physical universe got split into a four dimensional universe and a six dimensional universe.

According to contemporary physicists, something went wrong. Universes are like bubbles in the hyperspace. They are formed, they expand till they touch another in the same spatial dimension, then both the colliding universes implode to form one. Then the bubble starts again.

But in case of our universe, it seems some king of accidental imbalence took place in the six other dimensions. And we are here as a result cosmic accident.

The parallel universes all have many higher dimensions.

Does Vegetarianism Increase IQ ?

Frequently dismissed as cranks, their fussy eating habits tend to make them unpopular with dinner party hosts and guests alike. But now it seems they may have the last laugh, with research showing vegetarians are more intelligent than their meat-eating friends.

A study of thousands of men and women revealed that those who stick to a vegetarian diet have IQs that are around five points higher than those who regularly eat meat. Writing in the British Medical Journal, the researchers say it isn't clear why veggies are brainier - but admit the fruit and veg-rich vegetarian diet could somehow boost brain power.

The researchers, from the University of Southampton, tracked the fortunes of more than 8,000 volunteers for 20 years. At the age of ten, the boys and girls sat a series of tests designed to determine their IQ.

When they reached the age of 30, they were asked whether they were vegetarian and their answers compared to their childhood IQ score.

Around four and a half per cent of the adults were vegetarian - a figure that is broadly in line with that found in the general population.

However, further analysis of the results showed those who were brainiest as children were more likely to have become vegetarian as adults, shunning both meat and fish.

The typical adult veggie had a childhood IQ of around 105 - around five points higher than those who continued to eat meat as they grew up.

The vegetarians were also more likely to have gained degrees and hold down high-powered jobs.

There was no difference in IQ between strict vegetarians and those who classed themselves as veggie but still ate fish or chicken.

However, vegans - vegetarians who also avoid dairy products - scored significantly lower, averaging an IQ score of 95 at the age of 10.

Researcher Dr Catharine Gale said there could be several explanations for the findings, including intelligent people being more likely to consider both animal welfare issues and the possible health benefits of a vegetarian diet.

Previous work has shown that vegetarians tend to have lower blood pressure and lower cholesterol, cutting their risk of heart attacks. They are also less likely to be obese.

Alternatively, a diet which is rich in fruit, vegetables and wholegrains may somehow boost brain power.

Dr Gale said: 'Although our results suggest that children who are more intelligent may be more likely to become vegetarian as adolescents or young adults, it does not rule out the possibility that such a diet might have some beneficial effect on subsequent cognitive performance.

'Might the nature of the vegetarians' diet have enhanced their apparently superior brain power? Was this the mechanism that helped them achieve the disproportionate nature of degrees?'

High-profile vegetarians include singers Paul McCartney and Morrissey and actress Jenny Seagrove.

Past exponents of a meat-free lifestyle include George Bernard Shaw and Benjamin Franklin.

Promoting the cause, Shaw said, 'A mind of the calibre of mine cannot drive its nutriment from cows', while Franklin stated that a vegetarian diet resulted in 'greater clearness of head and quicker comprehension'.

Liz O'Neill, of the Vegetarian Society, said: 'We've always known that vegetarianism is an intelligent, compassionate choice benefiting animals, people and the environment. Now, we've got the scientific evidence to prove it.

'Maybe that explains why many meat-reducers are keen to call themselves vegetarians when even they must know that vegetarians don't eat chicken, turkey or fish!'
