The root of a dark matter hair produced from particles going through Jupiter’s core would be about 1 trillion times denser than average.

The solar system might be a lot hairier than we thought.

A new study publishing this week in the Astrophysical Journal by Gary Prézeau of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California, proposes the existence of long filaments of dark matter, or “hairs.”

Dark matter is an invisible, mysterious substance that makes up about 27 percent of all matter and energy in the universe. The regular matter, which makes up everything we can see around us, is only 5 percent of the universe. The rest is dark energy, a strange phenomenon associated with the acceleration of our expanding universe.

Neither dark matter nor dark energy has ever been directly detected, although many experiments are trying to unlock the mysteries of dark matter, whether from deep underground or in space.

Based on many observations of its gravitational pull in action, scientists are certain that dark matter exists, and have measured how much of it there is in the universe to an accuracy of better than one percent. The leading theory is that dark matter is “cold,” meaning it doesn’t move around much, and it is “dark” insofar as it doesn’t produce or interact with light.

Galaxies, which contain stars made of ordinary matter, form because of fluctuations in the density of dark matter. Gravity acts as the glue that holds both the ordinary and dark matter together in galaxies.

According to calculations done in the 1990s and simulations performed in the last decade, dark matter forms “fine-grained streams” of particles that move at the same velocity and orbit galaxies such as ours.

“A stream can be much larger than the solar system itself, and there are many different streams crisscrossing our galactic neighborhood,” Prézeau said.

Prézeau likens the formation of fine-grained streams of dark matter to mixing chocolate and vanilla ice cream. Swirl a scoop of each together a few times and you get a mixed pattern, but you can still see the individual colors.

“When gravity interacts with the cold dark matter gas during galaxy formation, all particles within a stream continue traveling at the same velocity,” Prézeau said.

But what happens when one of these streams approaches a planet such as Earth? Prézeau used computer simulations to find out.

His analysis finds that when a dark matter stream goes through a planet, the stream particles focus into an ultra-dense filament, or “hair,” of dark matter. In fact, there should be many such hairs sprouting from Earth.

A stream of ordinary matter would not go through Earth and out the other side. But from the point of view of dark matter, Earth is no obstacle.  According to Prézeau’s simulations, Earth’s gravity would focus and bend the stream of dark matter particles into a narrow, dense hair.

Hairs emerging from planets have both “roots,” the densest concentration of dark matter particles in the hair, and “tips,” where the hair ends. When particles of a dark matter stream pass through Earth’s core, they focus at the “root” of a hair, where the density of the particles is about a billion times more than average. The root of such a hair should be around 600,000 miles (1 million kilometers) away from the surface, or twice as far as the moon. The stream particles that graze Earth’s surface will form the tip of the hair, about twice as far from Earth as the hair’s root.

“If we could pinpoint the location of the root of these hairs, we could potentially send a probe there and get a bonanza of data about dark matter,” Prézeau said.

A stream passing through Jupiter’s core would produce even denser roots: almost 1 trillion times denser than the original stream, according to Prézeau’s simulations.

“Dark matter has eluded all attempts at direct detection for over 30 years. The roots of dark matter hairs would be an attractive place to look, given how dense they are thought to be,” said Charles Lawrence, chief scientist for JPL’s astronomy, physics and technology directorate.

Another fascinating finding from these computer simulations is that the changes in density found inside our planet – from the inner core, to the outer core, to the mantle to the crust – would be reflected in the hairs. The hairs would have “kinks” in them that correspond to the transitions between the different layers of Earth.

Theoretically, if it were possible to obtain this information, scientists could use hairs of cold dark matter to map out the layers of any planetary body, and even infer the depths of oceans on icy moons.

Further study is needed to support these findings and unlock the mysteries of the nature of dark matter.

New Li-Fi Internet Is 100 Times Faster Than Wi-Fi

Li-Fi uses flickering LED lights to transmit data at extremely high speeds

When Thomas Edison invented the electric lightbulb, he could hardly have imagined that one day his creation would be used not only to illuminate homes around the world, but also to transmit data that would enable people to download information from satellites in space to small hand-held devices. However, with the introduction of Li-Fi, household lighting could soon double as a form of data transmission that’s up to 100 times faster than Wi-Fi.

Li-Fi, which was first invented by Harold Haas of the University of Edinburgh in 2011, uses visible light communication (VLC) to send data at extremely high speeds. Essentially, this works like an incredibly fast signal lamp, flashing on and off in order to relay messages in binary code (1s and 0s). In previous lab-based experiments, the technology was able to transmit up to 224 gigabits per second. To put this in perspective, Wi-Fi is capable of reaching speeds of around 600 megabits per second.

The technology has now been deployed in real-life situations for the first time, thanks to the work of Estonian start-up Velmenni, which has begun trialling Li-Fi in offices and other industrial settings in Tallinn. In these environments, they were able to achieve connection speeds of around one gigabit per second.

Aside from its superior speed, Li-Fi also boasts a number of other benefits over Wi-Fi. For instance, the fact that the signal is carried by optical light means that it cannot travel through walls, therefore enhancing the security of local networks. Obviously, this produces a number of limitations as well, since it suggests that connection will be lost if a user leaves the room, representing a major hurdle that must be overcome if the technology is to be successfully implemented. However, if this barrier can be surmounted, then the use of the visible spectrum could allow Li-Fi to send messages across a much wider range of frequencies than Wi-Fi, which operates between the frequencies of 2.4 gigahertz and 5 gigahertz.

As such, it has been suggested that Li-Fi could provide the answer to increasing frequency congestion as Internet usage continues to rise across the world. According to the Cisco Visual Networking Index Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast, global monthly data usage is expected to exceed 24.3 exabytes by 2019 – a volume which current wireless connections are not able to handle.

In a recent TED talk, Haas insisted that household LED lightbulbs could easily be converted into Li-Fi transmitters, providing Internet users with more efficient connections. “All we need to do is fit a small microchip to every potential illumination device and this would then combine two basic functionalities: illumination and wireless data transmission,” he said. It is also worth mentioning that the speed at which these LEDs flicker in order to relay data is too fast for the human eye to perceive, so users will not have to worry about annoying flashes in their ambient light.

While it remains to be seen if Li-Fi can feasibly be implemented across the world, VLC is already finding a number of useful applications. For instance, Disney is currently developing a number of products that use the technology, including a range of toys such as a magic wand that can activate lightbulbs on a princess dress.

Awakening to the truth of who we really are

Posted in Cosmos, Sprituality on November 24, 2015 by betweentwopines

The ultimate goal of spiritual practices is beautifully summarized in this centuries-old zen teaching wherein Master Nanyue Huairang encountered Mazu Daoyi, who was deep in meditation, and asked him:

“Noble one, what are you trying to do, sitting there in meditation?”

Mazu said, “I’m trying to become a buddha.”

Master Nanyue then picked up a nearby piece of clay tile that had fallen from the roof, and began to rub it briskly on a stone.

Mazu asked, “What are you doing?”

The Master said, “I’m polishing this tile to make a mirror.”

Mazu said, “How can you produce a mirror by polishing a piece of tile?”

Master Nanyue replied, “How can you make a buddha by sitting in meditation?”

Shobogenzo, by Dogen (1200-1253 AD)

Oh what a wonderful little story this is! The goal of our spiritual practices is not to become something else. Our spiritual practices will never magically transform us into something that we are not. The tile will never become a mirror; that is an unrealistic goal, and an unrealistic goal will be met with failure upon failure.

The goal of our spiritual practices, such as meditation, chanting or prayer, is not to make us into something that we are not, but rather to awaken us to the truth of who we really are!

Enlightenment, awakening to our true identity, is the goal of our practices. The little self, the ego, may always remain the same troublesome little self, but the self-centered thinking of the little self is superseded by the all-encompassing intuitive knowing of our true Self, and, in doing so, the little self becomes overshadowed by a greater Self in whom we discover that we live and breathe and have our being. This marvelous change of viewpoint, the shift of the central focus of our attention from the false self to the true Self, is the ultimate achievement of spiritual practices.

Being born again means that the soul is awakened after having come on earth, and entering the kingdom of heaven means that this world, the same kingdom in which we are standing just now, turns into heaven as soon as the point of view has changed. Is it not interesting and most wonderful to think that the same earth we walk on is earth to one person and heaven to another? And it is still more interesting to notice that it is we who change it; we change it from earth into heaven, or we change it otherwise. This change comes not by study, nor by anything else, but only by the changing of our point of view.

The true Self has been patiently awaiting our attention, but we have been so occupied with the drama of the little self that we have not even noticed that there is something far greater which is our true nature.  As Shakyamuni buddha once said:

  I see now
that all creatures
have perfect Enlightenment
– but they do not yet know it.

Buddha

This little self, the ego, the superficial aspect of each of us which is the cause of divisive ideas such as I, me, mine, yours, is the source of all of our pain and confusion. When we venture beyond this little self, we discover something far greater, something that has been given names such as Self, God, Allah, Brahma, Atman, Tao, or Buddha-nature. But no matter what we choose to call it, this is our true home, the source of the greatest bliss, the greatest peace, the greatest understanding.

How long will you keep pounding on an open door
Begging for someone to open it?

Rabi’a  al-‘Adawiyya

On the surface, each of us is separate and we have our own individual way of life. But, in the depth of being, we are One. The goal of our spiritual practices is to move beyond the surface, and to discover the depth. The surface of the ocean has waves, turbulence and an ever-changing appearance. The depths of the ocean are calm, peaceful and stable. Likewise, the surface of life, the ephemeral portion of life that is grasped all-too-tightly by the little self, is turbulent, upsetting and ever-changing, while the depth of life, the aspect often called divine, is peaceful, calm and dependable; it is the rock-steady foundation upon which our life exists; it is our true nature.

In the pursuit of learning, every day something is acquired.
In the pursuit of Tao, every day something is dropped.

Lao Tzu

When one becomes conscious of their own true nature, all of the old unkindness and selfishness are dropped and the true light of loving-kindness and selflessness shines forth in glorious brilliance. The one who is unconditionally loving and is empty of self does not have any further need for lists of commandments or books of rules, since such a one is living in intimate harmony with the divine and every act flows from the well-spring of divine intent.

How can one explain spiritual progress? What is it? What is it like? Spiritual progress is the changing of the point of view.

As long as our greatest ideal, that ideal which is often called Self, God, Allah, Brahma, Atman, Tao, or Buddha-nature, is something far away and much too distant to see clearly or experience directly, we will continue to suffer. But, when one’s viewpoint changes and that greatest of ideals is seen to be everywhere present and manifest in all of creation, then life truly changes. What was once far away becomes closer than one’s own jugular vein; what was once turbulent becomes calm; what was once stressful becomes a source of bliss… yet all that really changes is one’s own viewpoint.

 

Wishing you love, harmony and beauty,

‘Healthy’ foods differ by individual

Ever wonder why that diet didn’t work? An Israeli study tracking the blood sugar levels of 800 people over a week suggests that even if we all ate the same meal, how it’s metabolized would differ from one person to another. The findings, published November 19 in Cell, demonstrate the power of personalized nutrition in helping people identify which foods can help or hinder their health goals.

Blood sugar has a close association with health problems such as diabetes and obesity, and it’s easy to measure using a continuous glucose monitor. A standard developed decades ago, called the glycemic index (GI), is used to rank foods based on how they affect and is a factor used by doctors and nutritionists to develop healthy diets. However, this system was based on studies that average how small groups of people responded to various foods.

The new study, led by Eran Segal and Eran Elinav of the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel, found that the GI of any given food is not a set value, but depends on the individual. For all participants, they collected data through health questionnaires, body measurements, blood tests, glucose monitoring, , and a mobile-app used to report lifestyle and (a total of 46,898 meals were measured). In addition, the volunteers received a few standardized/identical meals for their breakfasts.

As expected, age and (BMI) were found to be associated with after meals. However, the data also revealed that different people show vastly different responses to the same food, even though their individual responses did not change from one day to another.

“Most dietary recommendations that one can think of are based on one of these grading systems; however, what people didn’t highlight, or maybe they didn’t fully appreciate, is that there are profound differences between individuals—in some cases, individuals have opposite response to one another, and this is really a big hole in the literature,” says Segal, of Weizmann’s Department of Computer Science and Applied Math.

Doctors and nutrition specialists keep telling us what foods are good and bad for our metabolism and health. But does it work for everyone? In this video, senior authors Eran Segal and Eran Elinav at the Weizmann Institute of Science explain how …more

“Measuring such a large cohort without any prejudice really enlightened us on how inaccurate we all were about one of the most basic concepts of our existence, which is what we eat and how we integrate nutrition into our daily life”, says Elinav, of Weizmann’s Department of Immunology. “In contrast to our current practices, tailoring diets to the individual may allow us to utilize nutrition as means of controlling elevated blood sugar levels and its associated medical conditions.”

Moving Toward Personalized Nutrition

Compliance can be the bane of nutrition studies. Their outcomes rely on participants, away from the laboratory, rigidly following a diet and honestly recording their food intake. In the Weizmann study, the participants (representing a cross-section of Israel’s population and all unpaid) were asked to disrupt their weekly routine in two ways: They were to eat a standardized breakfast such as bread or glucose each morning and also enter all of their meals into a mobile app food diary. In return, the researchers would provide an analysis of the participants’ personalized responses to food, which relied on strict adherence to the protocol. Elinav and Segal say this proved to be a strong motivator, and participant meal reporting closely matched the biometric data obtained from their glucose monitors.

The individualized feedback yielded many surprises. In one case, a middle-aged woman with obesity and pre-diabetes, who had tried and failed to see results with a range of diets over her life, learned that her “healthy” eating habits may have actually been contributing to the problem. Her blood sugar levels spiked after eating tomatoes, which she ate multiple times over the course of the week of the study.

“For this person, an individualized tailored diet would not have included tomatoes but may have included other ingredients that many of us would not consider healthy, but are in fact healthy for her,” Elinav says. “Before this study was conducted, there is no way that anyone could have provided her with such personalized recommendations, which may substantially impact the progression of her pre-diabetes.”

To understand why such vast differences exist between people, the researchers conducted microbiome analyses on stool samples collected from each study participant. Growing evidence suggests gut bacteria are linked to obesity, glucose intolerance, and diabetes, and the study demonstrates that specific microbes indeed correlate with how much blood sugar rises post-meal. By conducting personalized dietary interventions among 26 additional study participants, the researchers were able to reduce post-meal levels and alter gut microbiota. Interestingly, although the diets were personalized and thus greatly different across participants, several of the gut microbiota alterations were consistent across participants.

“After seeing this data, I think about the possibility that maybe we’re really conceptually wrong in our thinking about the obesity and diabetes epidemic,” says Segal. “The intuition of people is that we know how to treat these conditions, and it’s just that people are not listening and are eating out of control—but maybe people are actually compliant but in many cases we were giving them wrong advice.”

“It’s common knowledge among dieticians and doctors that their patients respond very differently to assigned diets,” he adds. “We can see in the data that the same general recommendations are not always helping people, and my biggest hope is that we can move this boat and steer it in a different direction.”

The researchers hope to translate what was learned in this basic research project so that it can be applied to a broader audience through further algorithmic developments that would reduce the number of inputs that are needed in order to provide people with personalized nutritional reports.

New research on blood sugar

Here is some research done in Israel on the effects of the gut flora and genetic variances on the utilization of foods and their effect on metabolism. If you read the article it states that the averaging of the accepted research used to form the present system is flawed and was based on small numbers of similar people. Now the use of their research is based on their control group, to utilize this properly you would have to do many control groups based on ancestral traits throughout the world. Every culture would have different parameters. They discuss this somewhat in their writing and the video.

I know well from my research that proper nutrition is different for different people. You cannot say that one size fits all. I have been trying to stress this from my research from reading many many thousands of research articles over the last seven years. I read much more research than summaries and found that the summaries often did not properly interpret the research.

The video seems sort of not scientific but it does match pretty well what research shows to be real. It is easy for most people to understand also which is a good thing. I know science and making a good video that most people can relate to would be hard for me. I am starting to think too much in scientific words that most people can’t quite understand well.

The video is worth watching and the content is real, they focus more on the microbes living symbiotically than on the Epigenetic factors but epigenetics are also related to what microbes are accepted in our bodies and what enzymes we need from these microbes to help to take apart food properly. If we lack the ability to make an enzyme, sometimes a symbiotic bacteria in our gut can help us. We live in a body where there are many more microbes living than our own cells, there is a reason for that.

Proper blood sugar levels are important but how our bodies and microbes in our bodies deal with them can be very different. Blood sugar levels are also related to metabolics which differ from person to person. Now chemicals and food additives are also a problem and these additives killing beneficial microbes is also a problem. Lots of them have antimicrobial actions to keep the food from turning bad. A lot of things need to be considered, but think about it, the numbers of people with sugar problems is increasing pretty much. Why?

Muslim Refugee Warns: This Is the “Islamic Conquest of the West”

Posted in Conspiracy, News, Politics on November 10, 2015 by betweentwopines

Written by  Selwyn Duke

He’s a Muslim refugee living in Europe. And he has a warning:

Keep the Muslim “refugees” out of Europe.

He’s Dr. Mudar Zahran, a Jordanian Palestinian academic and a leader of the Jordanian Opposition Coalition who is currently living in the United Kingdom, where he sought political asylum. Describing himself as an “orthodox Muslim,” he nonetheless says there’s a “genuine problem with Muslims in Europe” and calls the current wave of migrants entering the continent “the soft Islamic conquest of the West.”

Dr. Zahran issued these and more dire warnings on a Thursday segment of The Glazov Gang (video below). Zahran’s basic message is that the West is being manipulated, fooled, and played for suckers by migrants who by and large are not what they appear.

Many of us have heard the stories. German schoolgirls being told to wear “modest Sharia-compliant clothing … to avoid offending the Muslims”; migrants turning their free housing into a garbage dump, attacking medical staff, becoming enraged at having to pay for prescriptions, suing the German government for not paying benefits fast enough; and German schoolchildren asked to make beds and cook for able-bodied migrants. Then there were the Muslims in Budapest and France chanting the jihadist cry Allahu Akbar, and migrants on the Greece/Macedonia border refusing food and water parcels because they had the Red Cross on them.

But Dr. Zahran has a bit more of the inside story. He told show host Jamie Glazov that while most Muslim migrants claim to be Syrian so they can get refugee status, what we’re witnessing is an “influx of all kinds of refugees from the Middle East.” He continued:

Seventy-five percent of those arriving from Syria come from safe area[s]; actually, the ones in disaster areas cannot … leave. So, actually, as much as there’s a disaster in Syria, most of those people arriving do in fact do not need the protection; they arrive from Turkey, they arrive from Jordan, they arrive from other places which are safe. In addition, those people are … bypassing poor European countries, they’re going to Turkey, Hungary, and other places like Bulgaria and settling in Germany, where there is a rich nation with a generous welfare system.

And Germany is right now on the front line. The Montana-sized nation expects 1.5 million Muslim migrants this year alone; this is 50 percent more than the total population of Montana. And these migrants will enter a land where churches are already being converted into mosques.

Dr. Zahran also warns that this “is only the beginning. We are looking at at least … another 20 to 30 million Muslim/Arab migrants during the next 3 to 5 years.…This is a big issue; this is going to change Europe’s culture.”

Yet there’s another big issue. If a nation admits one million Muslims and only one-tenth of one percent constitutes terrorists, that’s 1,000 violent jihadists. But Zahran says it isn’t hypothetical because, he states, “I can authoritively [sic] confirm — I have photos, I have images, I have pictures, I have names of terrorists who actually are already in Europe posting their photos in Europe on Facebook.”

And then there’s the face of Europe, which will be “affected deeply,” warns Zahran. He explained:

[W]e do have a genuine problem with Muslims in Europe … in most cases they don’t seem to fully integrate in the country. Not to mention the cases where there are people who want to turn Europe into a Muslim state in 30 or 40 or 50 years through producing children and depending on welfare through the children. In short, I think there is a very major problem to Europe’s identity…. What we see with many Muslims in Europe are people marching in London, Berlin, and elsewhere demanding Sharia law.

Note, recent polls show that even in the United States a majority of Muslims prefer Sharia law to American law, and 60 percent of Muslim Americans under age 30 say they’re more loyal to Islam than to our nation.

So Dr. Zahran seems to believe that the migrants represent a vanguard in what he calls “the soft Islamic conquest of the West.” He also says that in his opinion, half the Syrian male migrants “have actually held weapons and fought in the Syrian war.” And while they’re rough and ready to fulfill what he terms “the Islamic … dreams of fascism of some,” Europe is playing the doormat. What Muslims “couldn’t do in the last 20 years,” says Zahran, “now the West is doing for us for free — and even paying for it.” Moreover, Zahran had this shocking news about the “invasion”: “I have to be honest,” he said, “you read Arab magazines and Arab newspapers; they are talking about, ‘Good job! Now we’re going to conquest [sic] Europe.’ So it’s not even a secret.”

Of course, many Westerners welcome the Muslims in the name of “diversity,” but, interestingly, rich Muslim countries such as Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Dubai don’t welcome the “diversity” of their co-religionists. Why not? Because, according to Zahran, most “Muslim states … have zero history of human respect and human rights.”

The irony of the diversity argument, however, is that diversity doesn’t long exist where Islam takes hold, and much of Europe’s history involved defensive warfare to keep Muslims out. Note that Christianity was the dominant religion in the Mideast and North Africa until Muslim armies seized the territory after Islam’s birth in 622 A.D.; Muslims also occupied Spain for 650 years, once came within 125 miles of Paris, and twice reached the gates of Vienna.

Dr. Zahran blames this conversion-by-the-sword mentality on the influence of the Hadith, an Islamic canonical book written hundreds of years after Mohammed’s death; in fact, he frankly said that the Hadith is “basically ISIS.” Yet while 21 percent of the book is devoted to jihad, when Islam’s other two canonical volumes — the Koran and the Sira — are factored in, that figure rises to 31 percent. In contrast, as I wrote in February, “5.6 percent of the Old Testament and 0 percent of the New Testament are devoted to political violence. In terms of word count, this works out to 0 in the latter and 34,039 in the Hebrew Bible.” And the Islamic canon? It comes in at 327,547 — 9.6 times greater than the Old Testament. Moreover, as one expert put it, “The political violence of the Bible was for that particular historical time and place.… The political violence of the Koran is eternal and universal.”

In the face of this, Dr. Zahran has a politically incorrect prescription. He said to Glazov, “We need to send those people [the Muslim migrants] home. I’m not talking only about those yet to come; I’m talking about those who are already there [in Europe] — they can always be sent home.… I am completely against making this situation permanent.”

And that is the point. As I wrote in “The Refugee Scam,” “If a stranger in need happens by your area and you’re a charitable sort, you may take him in for a time, feed him and provide other basic necessities. You don’t generally make him an official part of your family and empower him to help decide on finances, what products to buy, how your kids will be educated and what values will prevail within your home.” The modern West operates on an unquestioned ahistorical supposition that refugee status must be conflated with citizenship. And with this standard, refugees can eventually turn the West into a place of no refuge at all.

After ten weeks the EMdrive is still running at NASA

Posted in Energy, Science, Technology on November 9, 2015 by betweentwopines

 
Post by 0bserver1 at ATS

You have to love new propulsion systems , because they are the next step in the way we would see space travel in next decennial era.
Especially the mysterious EMdrive since this propulsion system became the news of the most promising engine ,that would bring us to the moon into four hours .

My antennas raised and I could see the first manned mission to Mars within my lifetime. Well I think we might see multiple purpose craft not only examining one celestial body but keep on flying and testing planets, moons ,asteroids and comets whenever it gets the tasks uploaded to go and do another destination.
As far as I know the ion drive has similar function to my knowledge , like the one mounted on the Dawn spacecraft, but I don’t know if both engines could be compared ?

Yeah this engine discovered by Roger Shawyer and Guido Fetta which slated science as absolute idiots are now testing it , how bizarre?
seems that’s how science goes …

Well now it seems that they can’t say much about it at NASA , but this impossible engine according to laws of physics is still running at NASA for ten f%$#g weeks now .

It seems that the scientists can’t really tell how it works but a test setup is already working 10 consecutive weeks. NASA scientists are testing the device at this point in the Eagle Works Laboratory. So far, the results have not been subject to peer review. It can not be excluded that the propulsion is the result of a measurement error.

Paul Mach, one of the scientists conducting the tests, for the first time in months on the forums of NASA Spaceflight given an update on the EM Drive. He says ,


the mistakes have been corrected during previous tests, but the engine still gives thrust.

Mach responded to an unpublished paper, in which it is claimed that the thrust of the EM Drive the consequence of the Lorentz force is, so that the force is generated by the interaction between the EM Drive and the magnetic field of the earth.


I wish I could show you all the pictures I’ve taken on how we saluted and mitigated the issues raised by our EW Lab’s Blue-Ribbon PhD panel and now Potomac-Neuron’s paper, on the possible Lorentz force interactions. That being the Lorentz Interactions with the dc currents on the EW torque pendulum (TP) with the stray magnetic fields from the torque pendulum’s first generation open-face magnetic damper and the Earth’s geomagnetic field, but I can’t due to the restrictive NASA press release rules now applied to the EW Lab.

The scientist explains that he can not comment on his work can make or photos, because his lab itself is working on a paper which could shed some light on the matter.

Mankind In Amnesia - Anunnaki Message  in5d in 5d

A message from the Anunnaki – MANKIND IN AMNESIA (Flying Saucer Review Magazine © November-December 1958)

Exhibit 19) Brinsley Le Poer Trench (Flying Saucer Review Magazine © November-December 1958)

“We are already here, among you. Some of us have always been here, with you, yet apart from, watching, and occasionally guiding you whenever the opportunity arose. Now, however, our numbers have been increased in preparation for a further step in the development of your planet: a step of which you are not yet aware… We have been confused with the gods of many world-religions, although we are not gods, but your fellow creatures, as you will learn directly before many more years have passed. You will find records of our presence in the mysterious symbols of ancient Egypt, where we made ourselves known in order to accomplish certain ends. Our principal symbol appears in the religious art of your present civilization and occupies a position of importance upon the great seal of your country. (The United States of America) It has been preserved in certain secret societies founded originally to keep alive the knowledge of our existence and our intentions toward mankind.”

“We have left you certain landmarks, placed carefully in different parts of the globe, but most prominently in Egypt where we established our headquarters upon the occasion of our last overt, or, as you would say, public appearance. At that time the foundations of your present civilization were ‘laid in the earth’ and the most ancient of your known landmarks established by means that would appear as miraculous to you now as they did to the pre-Egyptians, so many thousands of years ago. Since that time the whole art of building, in stone, has become symbolic, to many of you, of the work in hand—the building of the human race towards its perfection.”

“Your ancestors knew us in those days as preceptors and as friends. Now, through your own efforts, you have almost reached, in your majority, a new step on the long ladder of your liberation. You have been constantly aided by our watchful ‘inspiration’, and hindered only by the difficulties natural to your processes of physical and moral development…”

“You have lately achieved the means of destroying yourselves. Do not be hasty in your self-congratulation. Yours is not the first civilization to have achieved—and used—such means. Yours will not be the first civilization to be offered the means of preventing that destruction and proceeding, in the full glory of its accumulated knowledge, to establish an era of enlightenment upon the earth.”

“However, if you do accept the means offered you, and if you establish such a ‘millennium’ upon the basis of your present accomplishments, yours will be the first civilization to do so.

Mankind in Amnesia - An Actual Anunnaki Message | in5d.comALWAYS BEFORE, THE KNOWLEDGE, THE TECHNIQUES, THE INSTRUCTIONS, HAVE BECOME THE POSSESSIONS OF A CHOSEN FEW: A FEW CHOSE THEMSELVES BY THEIR OWN OPEN-MINDED AND CLEAR-SIGHTED REALIZATION OF ‘THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME’. THEY ENDEAVORED TO PASS ON THEIR KNOWLEDGE IN THE BEST POSSIBLE FORM, AND BY THE MOST ENDURING MEANS AT THEIR COMMAND. 

In a sense they succeeded, but in another sense their failure equaled their success. Human acceptance is, to a very large extent, measurable by human experience. Succeeding generations, who never knew our actual presence, translated the teachings of their elders in the terms of their own experience. For instance, a cross-sectional drawing, much simplified and stylized by many copyings, of one of our traveling machines became the ‘Eye of Horus”, and then other eyes of other gods. Finally, the ancient symbol that was once an accurate representation of an important mechanical device has been given surprising connotations by the modern priesthood of psychology.”

“The important fact is, however, that we are here, among you, and that you, as a world-race, will know it before very much longer! The time is almost ripe but, as with all ripening things, the process may not be hurried artificially without danger of damaging the fruit. There is a right time for every action, and the right time for our revelation of ourselves to your era is approaching.”

“Some of you have seen our ‘advanced guard’ already. You have met us often in the streets of your cities, and you have not noticed us. But when we flash through your skies in the ANCIENT TRADITIONAL VEHICLES  [Vimanas, see Exhibit 14, this paper—GJ]  you are amazed, and those of you who open your mouths and tell of what you have seen are accounted dupes and fools. Actually you are prophets, seers in the true sense of the word. You in Kansas and Oklahoma, you in Oregon and in California, and Idaho, you know what you have seen: do not be dismayed by meteorologists. Their business is the weather. One of you says, ‘I saw a torpedo-shaped object’. Others report, ‘disc-like objects’, some of you say ‘spherical objects’, or ‘platter-like objects’. You are all reporting correctly and accurately what you saw, and in most cases you are describing the same sort of vehicle.”

“… Now that the art of manufacturing plastic materials has reached a certain perfection among you, perhaps you can imagine a material, almost transparent to the rays of ordinary visible light, yet strong enough to endure the stresses of extremely rapid flight. Look again at the great nebulae, and think of the construction of your own galaxy, and behold the universal examples of what we have found to be the perfect shape for an object which is to travel through what you still fondly refer to as ‘empty’ space.”

In the center of the discus, gyroscopically controlled within a central sphere of the same transparent material, our control rooms revolve freely, accommodating themselves and us to flat or edgewise flight. Both methods are suited to your atmosphere, and when we convert abruptly from one to the other, as we are sometimes obliged to do, and you are watching, OUR MACHINES seem suddenly to appear—or to disappear. At our possible speeds your eyes, untrained and unprepared for the maneuver, do make mistakes—but not the mistakes your scientists so often accuse them of making.”

“We pass over your hilltops in horizontal flight. You see and report a torpedo-shaped object. We pass over, in formation, flying vertically ‘edge-on’… Or we go over at night, jet-slits glowing, and you see an orange disc. In any event you see us, and in any event we do not care. if we chose to remain invisible, we could do so, easily, and, in fact, we have done so almost without exception for hundreds of years. But you must become accustomed to our shapes in your skies, for one day they will be familiar, friendly, and reassuring sights.”

“This time, it is to be hoped that the memory of them, passed on to your children and their children, will be clear and precise. That you will not cause them to forget, as your ancestors forgot, the meaning of the diagrams and the instructions we will leave with you. If you do fail, AS OTHER CIVILIZATIONS HAVE FAILED, we will see your descendants wearing wiring-diagrams for simple machines as amulets, expecting the diagrams to do what their forefathers were taught the completed article would accomplish.

Then their children, forgetting even that much—or little—would preserve the amulet as a general protective device—or as an intellectual curiosity—or perhaps as a religious symbol. Such is the cycle of forgetfulness!”
