Corona the Crow


“Derived from Greek κορώνη (korone) meaning “crow”. This was the name of several figures from Greek mythology, including the mother of the god Asklepios.”

“In Greek mythology, Coronis (/kɒˈrəʊnɪs/; Greek: Κορωνίς, translit. Korōnís) is a Thessalian princess and a lover of Apollo… By Apollo she became the mother of Asclepius,[2][3][4][5] the Greek god of medicine…  [In] Ancient Greek Κορωνίς means “curved, bent”[6] and shares the exact same root with κορώνη (korṓnē), meaning, among other things, “crow,” due to the curvature of its beak…”

…and from the beaks and claws of corvids, we get more words, like beaker, billet, hook and hammer.

“Beekes considers the ‘crown’ sense as derived from the formally identical Greek word korōnē ‘crow’ (see raven), which, he says, was used metaphorically ‘of all kinds of curved or hook-formed objects.’ ‘Moreover,’ he writes, ‘the metaphorical use of [korōnē] ‘crow’ is nothing remarkable given the use of its cognates …; the metaphors may have originated from the shape of the beak or the claws of the bird.’ Compare Latin corax ‘crow’ also ‘a hooked engine of war,’ French corbeau ‘raven,’ also ‘cantilever;’ English crowbar, etc.”


Not many people today would consider a language to be technology, but indeed it has ever been: “In the beginning was the Word,” and from the Word poured forth the creation of the world. To name a thing was to know it and make it real (‘royal’)– to reveal and penetrate the mystery of its being, and as the ancients believed, to assume and use the power of that which is named. And so, by naming and realizing the world around us, a vast technology of assumed power was carried in the language of the people as they roamed and survived, invaded, settled and remembered themselves from time immemorial, or better said, from time’s immeasurable memory. Time itself, as a word—crone or chronology—is a gift from the crows, and by this remembrance the ‘crow’ people have carved an immortal desire to carry the technology of time and make a god of it, Cronos –or Saturn– ruling over this world from even the dark, cold remoteness of space. The Crow of time is a great secret; it sees all, knows all, and if it did not create us, it was nevertheless set upon us as a Great Watchman.

But, I didn’t start this post to talk about time, except to say that Time is speeding up and maybe that’s good. The end of Time, perhaps, is the end of the Crow people and they are not going without a fight—maybe you are Crow people too, from another flock, and fit for the battle. Crows are everywhere, they say. And in the huge composite of letters we call the English language, crows are also everywhere, lurking in the recesses of ancient words and mythologies among the crags of memory. Those words had no place of origin among the 400,000 and more chosen for the Oxford English Dictionary. The brethren of Oxford decided that the language should begin with Middle English, attempting the task for the first time in 1857. Failing to advance their reckoning, the Oxfordians hired James Murray in 1879 to organize a renewed effort, one that outlived Murray himself and took 49 years to complete to a respectable result of ten volumes and 3 feet of shelf space. Unlike most other letter languages, English continues to grow and abandon its over-heavy past, discarding mind, meme, and meaning on the counting-house floor. But the complexity of English is not your burden unless you choose it. Maybe you and yours were never crows. But if you map your genes among the ancient Mediterranean and Indo- European peoples, chances are deep down you’re a crow. And in your memory, if it speaks English, are crow words.

— corona, coroner, croak, croon, crown, crowd, corn, crop, curve, carriage, crave, raven, ravenous, ravine, rook, rock, cranny, cranium, Capricorn, call, Cornish, caucus, Caucasian…. And many, many more.

The Oxford English, despite expanding their lists, were well aware of not having the last (or the first!) word on crow. Interest in the olde meaning of crow words, and the name ‘Coronis’ in particular, was even then in the 1870s, shared in a London medical society text. They were looking for the original meaning of the Rod of Aesculapius (a.k.a. Aesclepius), the crow-god son of Apollo and Coronis, whose serpent staff had become their emblem.

The image below comes from reference #5 of the Coronis Wikipedia page: ‘Medical Society of London’—

Aesculapius and others like him were …”sprung from an egg”… “where a serpent in an egg is introduced as a true emblem of this deity… the emblem Coronis must sometimes have had a reference to the same. When it is said of Aesculapius…that the heavenly Coronis produced him to the world: this [twofold meaning] could not relate to the raven…yet could have no concern with his second birth, or with his birth at all. Coronis was certainly a name given by the poets and mythologists to a particular machine: the same in which the gods are supposed to have been enclosed and to have suffered a temporary death. Coronis is accordingly said to have been a vessel or float, whose extremities were equally raised and turned up like a crescent… By Coronis is signified a ship which has its two ends bent and turned up… The name was adapted to vessels of this form, from their representing the lunar emblem, the mystical machine Selene. This was the original Coronis and the name was given from a bird of the sea.”


The bird-of-the-sea who flew with the dragon-headed ships that carried it were once the Raven-painted sails of the Norsmen who set these oracular birds on the shoulders of their highest lord Odin (Woden).

It is another medical fellowship that preserves the ravens of Odin (‘Thought’ and ‘Memory’) as its emblem, the Society of Radiology, which represents the invading technologies of radiation. Like Odin’s birds returning to their master, they bring secrets out of the darkness and ‘prophesy’ to the fates. A modern irony in the symbolic choice of Thought and Memory is that, like a pirate’s corsair (a crow word), these ray-vens steal for themselves the very substance of the names, causing (more crowish) the loss of both.

Here is one of their own with The Supervoltage Story, or how high-energy particle accelerators came into medical use:

 “…let us listen to Munin, our messenger of memory, who with Hugin, the messenger of thought, appear on the heraldry of this Society (Fig. 1). It is good, as I said to this Society now some 15 years ago, from time to time to recall the past beyond the memory of many of us so that we may know of how those things which we accept as commonplace came to be…” The Supervoltage Story , 1974 lecture by Milford D. Schulz, MD 

Taking Dr. Schulz’s advice, “It is good…from time to time to recall the past beyond the memory of many of us so that we may know of how those things which we accept as commonplace came to be”

No one can say where or when the Crow people originated. Perhaps they were remnants of the great floods that created the Mediterranean.  Robert Graves, who had a genius for the Welsh bardic tradition, wrote in his 1946 book The White Goddess, that the Greeks called them Pelasgians, or “seafarers,” whom they conquered or assimilated. Like the Indo-European Greeks who came later, the Pelasgians may have also come from the east through Anatolia and Canaan where they established their legacy of Phoenicia and customized their crow into a Phoenix.

 “The Pelasgians claimed to be born from the teeth of the cosmic snake Ophion whom the Great Goddess in her character of Eurynome (‘wide rule’) had taken as her lover, thereby initiating the material Creation; but Ophion and Eurynome are Greek renderings of the original names. They may have called themselves Danaans after the same goddess [of Creation]…” p62, The White Goddess.

The ‘wide rule’ of Eurynome, it appears, was a great circle of interconnecting water systems encompassing the whole of Europe’s landmass from the Arctic, to the inland seas of the Steppe, southward to the Mediterranean and out again to the Atlantic—a clockwork of water and time, remade between the shattering cataclysms of destruction that “ate their children and drank their blood.” In those lost days, survival may have required the abilities of serpents and birds, and to them we look again to initiate Creation.

For the first Crow Show of June –Queen of the World, 2022 Platinum Jubilee – this ‘remote’ Tree lighting illuminated a symbolic  snake staff of magenta-to-white from Windsor Castle to Buckingham Palace        

And what does this display of royal pageantry mean?


For an up-to-date look at the Jubilee show from the mixed-reality denizens of blockchain and ‘social impact’ investing, Alison McDowell writes,  “With the rise of synthetic biology and nano-machines, it seems an appropriate time to reflect on the Hermetic tradition and the propensity of power to attempt to mask black magic rites with feeble trappings of fraudulent divine intent. In my opinion such a dynamic was at work here, broad-based attempts to propagandize the world into believing synthetic is natural and sacred. It has everything to do with England’s traditions of scientifically managed breeding, including Galton and eugenics…”


Tree of Life from T-mobile?

What I see in the logo is a couple of twin cube bits (qubits) floating in alignment with this white T, hanging together on invisible threads –entangled in magenta perpetuity (‘magen’ means ‘king’). The Internet of Bodies and Things, they’re telling us, is a vast phenomenon of quantum computing—a bio-digital convergence that is re-generating the world, re-generating economies, and resetting the scope of human activity.  The New Creation story no longer depends on us “coming down from the trees,” which is still a metaphor for human origins, but as shown in the Jubilee, injecting their lit-bit entanglements up the tree. Undeniably, this is a re-versal of our creation story.

The Great Mother of the sea-bird folk has come down to us in myriad forms and symbols but are all representations of the Womb of Creation. She is the Tree of Life, a ‘twin’ creator in Bronze Age conception, and as Robert Graves reveals, the giver of language and letters. In the opening chapters of The White Goddess, Graves expands on the interpretation of a holy riddle called The Battle of the Trees, the ‘battle’ order (and calendar) of an ancient alphabet that conveys sacred knowledge of the Goddess. He also tells us that “the Pelasgians were called Dioi (‘divine’) because they alone of all the Greeks preserved the use of letters after the Deluge” –p226, ibid.  In this generic sense of Pelasgians, it was they who spread the practice of writing and symbolizing speech– again. The Hero who fathered them, Phoroneus, was a primordial Prometheus whose ‘phor’ in his name was the ‘fire’ of thought and memory, “and who had for a mother the essential spirit of the very earth of Argos herself, Argia.”

Argeia, meaning ‘dazzling white,’ is the White Goddess who mated with the titan river-god Inachus in her aspect of an Ash Tree nymph. Phoroneus’s sister Io “became Isis when she reached Egypt” (Graves p232) bringing the Letters (‘oracles’) with her to the Egyptians. A result of this transfer, and others like it, may be seen in the Demotic script and cuneiform Armana Letters, created in the time of Akhenaton (mid-14th century BCE)

Technology among the settlers of the Mediterranean transitioned in this period to the Iron Age and “ the beginning of the historiographical record…”; from which we learn that Phoroneus became the Kronos of Olympia, a primordial Hero who invented fire, founded the Law, and was celebrated at the Spring Equinox.

 “It has not yet been established when people first began worshipping at Olympia. However, archaeological finds show that the area was at least settled from the 3rd millennium B.C. It is also known that the first Sanctuary was the Gainon, which was found at the foot of Kronos hill and was dedicated to Gaia (Earth), the wife of Ouranos (Heaven). That was also, as it is said, the most ancient oracle of Olympia.”

“In Greek mythology, Cronus, Cronos, or Kronos (/ˈkroʊnəs/ or /ˈkroʊnɒs/, from Greek: Κρόνος, Krónos) was the leader and youngest of the first generation of Titans, the divine descendants of the primordial Gaia (Mother Earth) and Uranus (Father Sky). He overthrew his father and ruled during the mythological Golden Age, until he was overthrown by his own son Zeus and imprisoned in Tartarus  “Tartarus is both a deity and a place in the underworld. In ancient Orphic sources and in the mystery schools, Tartarus is also the unbounded first-existing entity from which the Light and the cosmos are born… third of the primordial deities, following after Chaos and Gaia… offspring of Aether and Gaia.”   Graves tells us that “Tar” in the Aegean tongue means “west” and “the dying sun… The reduplication tar-tar, meaning the far, far west, has evidently given Tartara, the land of the dead, its name.”—p372, The White Goddess

As Greeks displaced Pelasgians, the descendents of Kronos divided and moved west to ancient Iberia (Portugal and Spain), north to Thrace and Gaul or remained and assimilated, elaborating the pantheon of the sacred Crow from where the goddess Coronis made her match with Apollo, mothering the Asclepiads of therapeutic arts and secrets. “Apollo was not at that time a Sun-god, but an Underworld oracular hero…herdsman to…the Minyan king of Pherae in Thessaly…” –p141, ibid.

“Neptune pursuing Coronis who is changed into a crow,” 1590, by Hendrick Goltzius

“The first Greeks to invade Greece were the Achaeans who broke into Thessaly about 1900 BC; they were patriarchal herdsmen and worshipped an Indo-European male trinity of gods, originally perhaps Mitra, Varuna and Indra… subsequently called Zeus, Poseidon and Hades. Little by little they conquered the whole of Greece and tried to destroy the semi-matriarchal Bronze Age civilization that they found there, but later compromised with it, accepted matrilinear succession and enrolled themselves as sons of the variously named Great Mother… [The] Achaeans who had occupied Argolis now also took the name of Danaans and also became seafarers [p62]… The Aeolian Greeks invaded Thessaly from the north…settled down amicably with the Achaean Danaans and became known as the Minyans [p63]…[And] about 1250 BC a distinction arose between the Achaean Danaans and other less civilized Achaeans…who invaded the Peloponnese, founded a new patriarchal dynasty, repudiated the sovereignty of the Great Goddess and instituted the familiar Olympian pantheon ruled over by Zeus… suggest[ing] religious revolution [that] was at first strongly resisted by the Danaans and Pelasgians…  Poseidon the ash[tree]-god and Zeus the oak-god were both once armed with thunderbolts; but when the Achaeans humbled the Aeolians [minyans], Poseidon’s bolt was converted into a trident or fish spear and Zeus reserved the sole right to wield the bolt…  The original Danaans may well have come up to the Aegean from Lake Tritonis in Libya… though it is unlikely that they were so called until they reached Syria… We may further identify Danu with the Mother-goddess of the Aegean ‘Danuna,’ a people who about the year 1200 BC, according to contemporary Egyptian inscriptions, invaded Northern Syria in company with…other Eastern Mediterranean peoples. To the Egyptians these were all ‘Peoples of the Sea’…forced by the pressure of the new Indo-European horde to emigrate… ” –p64, The White Goddess.

Robert Graves: “Since the close connexion here suggested between ancient British, Greek, and Hebrew religion will not be easily excepted, I wish to make it immediately clear that I am not a British Israelite… My reading of the case is that at different periods in the second millennium B.C. a confederacy of mercantile tribes, called in Egypt ‘the People of the Sea’, were displaced from the Aegean…[and] that some of these wandered north along already established trade-routes, and eventually reached Britain and Ireland; and that others wandered west…[with] some elements reaching Ireland by way of North Africa and Spain. Still others invaded Syria and Canaan, among them the Philistines who captured the shrine of Hebron in southern Judea from the Edomite clan… These borrowings were eventually harmonized in the Pentateuch with a body of Semitic, Indo-European and Asianic myth which composed  the religious traditions of the mixed Israelite confederacy. The connexion then, between the early myths of the Hebrews, Greeks, and the Celts is that [they] were civilized by the same Aegean people…And this is not of merely antiquarian interest, for the popular appeal of modern Catholicism is, despite the patriarchal Trinity and the all-male priesthood, based rather on the Aegean Mother-and-son religious tradition…than on its Aramaean or Indo-European ‘warrior-god’ elements.” –p61, ibid.

Indeed, the Great Mother gives birth to the son who becomes her husband and hero: In ancient Syria she is Asherah (Astarte, Ashteroth), wife of EL, represented as a wooden “pole”, mast, or staff. In Asherah’s icons a ‘tree’ is typically carved on her belly—the word belly deriving from her son(s) Bel, Baal, Belinus—and we would recognize her cognates in the sacred ASH tree: “In Greece the ash was sacred to Poseidon, the second god of the Achaean trinity…”(p176, ibid.)

Asherah, God’s wife (from minute 27 to the end), the Tree of Life

The brothers of Zeus, Poseidon and Hades, were both eventually given ‘trident’ fish-spears to wield, beginning with the diminution of Poseidon, “and Zeus reserved the sole right to wield the Bolt.” In Greek, the letter ‘Psi’ reveals the fish spear which today is heraldry for Psychology and numerous other applications, for example, denoting ‘pseudo-uracil’ as a form of ribonucleic acid in mRNA. We saw the fish spear Letter earlier in the hands of Lord Saturn the crow. In the lands of letters we see Psi becoming three: U, I, and Y, but in its simplest observation there is a tree with three branches.

“Pseudouridine (abbreviated by the Greek letter psi- Ψ)[1] is an isomer of the nucleoside uridine in which the uracil is attached via a carbon-carbon instead of a nitrogen-carbon glycosidic bond. (In this configuration, uracil is sometimes referred to as ‘pseudouracil’.) Pseudouridine is the most abundant RNA modification in cellular RNA… Ψ is found in the large and small ribosomal subunits of all domains of life and their organelles… When pseudouridine is used in place of uridine in synthetic mRNA, the modified mRNA molecule arouses less response from Toll-like receptors, a part of the human immune system that would otherwise identify the mRNA as unwelcome. This makes pseudouridine useful in mRNA vaccines, including the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines. This property of pseudouridine was discovered by Katalin Karikó and Drew Weissman in 2005.”

The team of ‘Kariko-Weissman’ that discovered this stealthy property of pseudouracil in RNA would probably not appreciate me pointing out that their combined names carry the meaning of ‘White Crow’. In birdland today, a white crow or raven is considered a mutation but in origin stories of crows they were all once white until cast into a fire and roasted black.


The HARBINGER implicit in this message from the crows, coded deeply into our collective consciousness by symbols and myth, is the ongoing subject of this post as Corona the Crow continues. In a tie-in with magenta-to-white of the T-mobile logo, calling it “New Magenta” as they do, one of a few anagrams from New Magenta is “want Ma gene”– a ‘mother’ seed-of-change from the Technocracy.


In the Mother tongue, ‘charcoal’ is a compound crow word of carbonaceous material obtained by heating an organic substance, as wood, in the absence of air” (from the Webster’s on my shelf), producing a useful product from the fire that is also called a ‘cherry’, or fruit of the firey wood. On nature’s terms, coals are the harvest of ashes and soot, survivors of holo-causts that can be carried away as seeds of new fires. In the naming of things (‘taxonomy’) we give the cherry-(carbon)-ASH-seed-coals to the family of birds called “Craticus” –the ‘calling’ birds, who in their flight of exodus (‘colare’ in Latin) carry ‘fire’ out into the world.  By the fanciful expansion of sacred language ( as in ‘chola’, or ‘cola’) the name (Saint) Nicholas—Santa Claus— conjures a crow visit on one of the most sacred calendar nights of the year—the ‘darkest’ and coldest of days in the north. To the English, he was ‘old King Cole.’ To their ancestors, he was Saturn (Set, Satan, or ‘soot’), Lord Chronos the timekeeper, and his party was called Saturnalia.

American schoolchildren have traditionally learned that the Father of the Nation, George Washington, chopped down a cherry tree as a child of six, and though ‘wrong’ in doing so he was reconciled to his father by telling the truth. As one of the most celebrated secret-society Freemasons in history, the falsity of this tale is one to reckon with.  Children all over it seems are subject to a version of Santa Claus, whether or not he enters by the fireplace, in the great make-believe of being ‘everywhere, all at once’ and knowing what they deserve. Good children get presents in their stockings and bad ones get lumps of coal, perhaps in the old days well aware that it meant violating the catechism of good behavior. Do we give lumps of coal to kids today, or do we give them cell phones for good behavior?—amounting to much the same psychic result of casting them into the fire for remaking:

 “ ‘Almost all people of all eras are hypnotics. Their beliefs are induced beliefs. The proper authorities saw to it that the proper belief should be induced, and people believed properly.’ –Charles Fort… In a study of mind control and psychological warfare, it is not enough to simply review the latest technology of coercion… Far more dangerous than these appliances is the praxis behind them, the underground current which informs the modern project and this modern era. For life in our modern era is little more than life in an open-air mind control laboratory where a form of human alchemy has emerged to transform the mass of targeted percipients—targeted merely by virtue of their being urban dwellers plugged into the electronic and digital pageantry of the Establishment’s system-of-things.”—pp18-19,  Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare, by Michael A. Hoffman II, 2001


Oracular crow words related to the fire-stone “cherry” are virtually too many to name but in the most singular sense represent the Maidenhead and rites of the Great Mother. We get the words church, chore, cherish, charm, charisma, charade, and chariot; the body (corpus) parts cervix, cortex, cerebrum, cornea, cochlea, coronary and cervical structures and chakras with the practice of body worship (can we say ‘warship’?) in service (Crow for ‘cherry’) to the godhead.

…and do we not also practice “Psi”-ence in the worship of our god-selves?

“The original notion in the Latin verb probably is “to separate one thing from another, to distinguish,” or else “to incise.” This is related to scindere “to cut, divide” (from PIE root *skei- “to cut, split;” source also of Greek skhizein “to split, rend, cleave,” Gothic skaidan, Old English sceadan “to divide, separate”).”

The equivalence of Science from its ancient roots evolved from ‘scythe’ (‘scithe’), ‘sword’, ‘scion’, ‘scier’ and ‘sek’: The Proto-Indo-European (PIE) use of ‘sek’ is suggested in the Hittite word ‘shakk’, or “to know,” and the Lithuanian word ‘isekti’ which means “to engrave, carve,” and rather tellingly associated by sound and spelling to the Old French ‘scier’(’sier’) meaning ‘saw’.   “Since the Middle Ages, it was carried by personifications of Time and Death.”


“Where Does the Grim Reaper Come From? The Grim Reaper is a psychopomp: a creature (in this case, roughly human in form) that guides departed souls to the afterlife. Throughout history, there have been numerous psychopomps, from other human versions to animals, like ravens. Compared to ancient angels of death, the Grim Reaper is a relatively recent addition… It’s thought that the Grim Reaper appeared in around the 14th century when a specific historical…event known as the Black Death or simply “the plague” changed the way the average person viewed death… Additionally, the Grim Reaper is often pictured floating or flying, rather than simply walking. This mimics the ways in which the death gods of eras past got around, including the Valkyries, who hovered above battlefields.”

The Coroner

Little imagination appends to our progress in defining TIME and DEATH as a heritage of “cut, slash, and burn” science. Kitchens and washrooms have become our modern laboratories and the domain of skillful ‘cleavers’ (clever) in their arts. A personal joke of mine is to mentally refer to Pierre and Marie Curie and their friends as the Val-Curies, whose contributions to 20th century science can hardly be overstated. Ironically perhaps, “Curie” is straight from the Crow lexicon: “ ‘Cure’…from Old Latin coira-, a noun of unknown origin…[which has evolved to] cura ‘care, concern, trouble,’ or… In reference to fish, pork, etc., ‘prepare for preservation by drying, salting, etc.,’” to which we might add smoking, charring, boiling and canning in our acts of preservation. To this end, the modern model derived from antiquity is to build great labyrinths of stores for bodies and minds; catacombs, cemeteries, hospitals, libraries, and schools, over which bureaucrats, democrats, and aristocrats are called to rule. In medieval times, the great gothic cathedral itself was a ‘curation’ for the body-and-soul of the community. In all these places, we are meant to be secured and safely lost to the outside world to attain a sacred purpose –to be found, in oneself, transformed and completed.

History’s most celebrated labyrinth lies below the palace of Knossos on the island of Crete from where the legend of Theseus and the Minotaur, the bull-headed creature of Minos, was born. In short, Theseus of Athens posed as a sacrificial ‘tribute’ to the powerful Minoans in order to kill the labyrinth-dwelling Minotaur and end the tributary practice of Crete. The word ‘labyrinth’ is generally agreed to derive from ‘labrys’, a ceremonial double-headed axe which “is not a weapon and always accompanies women” , having its likeliest origin from Labraunda in the Anatolian province of Caria. The eastern Carians may be the oldest settlers of Crete, dating back to 7000BC, and builders of the labyrinth which the palace of Knossus supplanted. The evident ‘T’ shape of the labrys and associated bull—cow mother from the Age of Taurus—identifies a matriarchal culture. As a daughter of the Moon (Pasifae) from Crete, and half-sister to the Minotaur, the goddess Ariadne was carried to the far reaches of Europe where her legacy in Wales became Arianrhod, and her abode in the sky named “Corona Borealis” –as Robert Graves explains, “Arianrhod is one more more aspect of Caridwen, or Cerridwen, the White Goddess of Life-in-Death and Death-in-Life; and to be in the Castle of Arianrhod is to be in a royal purgatory awaiting resurrection. For in primitive European belief it was only kings, chieftains and poets, or magicians, who were privileged to be reborn. Countless other less distinguished souls wandered disconsolately in the icy grounds of the Castle, as yet uncheered by the Christian hope of universal resurrection.” –p98, The White Goddess.

Does this constellation look like a crown? Or a set of horns? Note from the Wikipedia link that “Among the Bedouins, the constellation was known as qaṣʿat al-masākīn (قصعة المساكين), or “the dish/bowl of the poor people”  —

As a bowl, cup or cauldron,  the Womb of creation is once again the sacred object from which the most valiant servants are recycled and born again. The Bronze Age dispersion of Crow people saw ‘new’ funerary practices brought into central Europe which included cremation and the collection of ashes in urns, considered a cultural innovation called “Urnfield” (13th c.BC) and descriptive of people who made ceremonial use of cauldrons. One of the most famous cauldrons in art history is a first century artifact known as the Gundestrup Cauldron, found in Denmark 1891 and assumed to be originally forged in the Balkans where it once had glass eyes. Gundestrup is an impressive treat for your eyes: On the first panel shown here the goddess and her wheels suggest a Cinderella carriage. The second shows the recycling warriors emerging from the immortal urn on horse.

In this work of Scottish art, we see the Phoenix, like a white raven, rising from its immortal cauldron.

“A valkyrie (pronounced “VAL-ker-ee”; Old Norse valkyrja, plural valkyrjur, “choosers of the fallen”) is a female helping spirit of the god Odin. The modern image of the valkyries as elegant, noble maidens bearing dead heroes to Valhalla is largely accurate for what it is, but a highly selective portrayal that exaggerates their pleasant qualities… As far as we today can tell, the valkyries have always had such characteristics, but in heathen times they were far more sinister. The meaning of their name, “choosers of the slain,” refers not only to their choosing who gains admittance to Valhalla, but also to their choosing who dies in battle… The Saga of the Volsungs compares beholding a valkyrie to “staring into a flame.”….

“Piezoelectricity was discovered in 1880 by Pierre and Paul-Jacques Curie, who found that when they compressed certain types of crystals including quartz, tourmaline, and Rochelle salt, along certain axes, a voltage was produced on the surface of the crystal. The next year, they observed the converse effect, the elongation of such crystals upon the application of an electric current.”,was%20produced%20on%20the%20surface%20of%20the%20crystal. “The first practical application was sonar, and it was developed in France during World War I, by Paul Langevin and his coworkers…”

Pierre Curie was killed by a fast-moving horse-drawn wagon as he stepped off a curb into a rainy Paris street near the Sorbonne in 1906. He was by then distracted and made ill by radiation. His 1903 Nobel legacy speech left us these words: “It is possible to conceive that in criminal hands radium might prove very dangerous, and the question therefore arises whether it be to the advantage of humanity to know the secrets of nature, whether we be sufficiently mature to profit by them, or whether that knowledge may not prove harmful. Take for instance, the discoveries of Nobel—powerful explosives have made it possible for men to achieve admirable things, but they are also a terrible means of destruction in the hands of those great criminals who draw nations into war. I am among those who believe with Nobel that humanity will obtain more good than evil from future discoveries.”

In 1995, amid high ceremony and national pride, the Curies were exhumed from their humble churchyard graves and prepared for re-interment in the great Pantheon of Paris. As she was the first woman to teach at the Sorbonne in life, Marie was the first woman at the Pantheon in death. Their radioactive remains lay sealed in lead-lined sarcophaguses, deep in the labyrinthine crypt: “ their remains are quite unique: When they were disinterred from their original resting place, they were so radioactive that they were interred in the Pantheon in inch-thick lead coffins that prevent the radiation from harming those who come to honor them…with radium 226, the most stable isotope of radium that has a half-life of approximately 1,500 years, their remains will stay dangerously radioactive for at least that long.”  Longer, in fact, if the “times ten” rule-of-thumb for half-lives is applied, this Ave Maria will chirp 15,000 years into the future.

“The Latin Cronos was called Saturn and in his statues he was armed with a pruning-knife crooked like a crow’s bill: probably a rebus on his name. For though the later Greeks liked to think that the name meant chronos, ‘time’, because any very old man was humorously called ‘Cronos’, the more likely derivation is from the same root cron or corn that gives the Greek and Latin words for crow—corone and cornix. The crow was a bird much consulted by augurs and symbolic, in Italy as in Greece, of long life.” –p66, The White Goddess.

“The carrion crow (Corvus corone) is a passerine bird of the family Corvidae and the genus Corvus which is native to western Europe and the eastern Palearctic… and it still bears its original name of Corvus corone.[2] The binomial name is derived from the Latin corvus, “raven”,[3] and Greek κορώνη korōnē, “crow”.[4] The hooded crow, formerly regarded as a subspecies, has been split off as a separate species…and it has been proposed they could have evolved independently in the wetter, maritime regions at the opposite ends of the Eurasian landmass.[5] Along with the hooded crow, the carrion crow occupies a similar ecological niche in Eurasia to the American crow (C. brachyrhynchos) in North America…The plumage of the carrion crow is black with a green or purple sheen, much greener than the gloss of the rook. The bill, legs and feet are also black. It can be distinguished from the common raven by its size… Scientific classification: Animalia; Phylum Chordata; Class Aves; Order Passeriformes; Family Corvidae; Genus Corvus; Species; C. corone…”

aviary (n.)

1570s, from Latin aviarium “place in which birds are kept,” neuter of aviarius “of birds,” from avis “bird,” from PIE root *awi- “bird”…*awi-  also might be the source of *wyo, *yyo, Proto-Indo-European words for “egg” …the hypothetical source of/evidence for its existence is provided by: Sanskrit vih, Avestan vish, Latin avis “bird;” Greek aietos “eagle;” Old Church Slavonic aja, Russian jajco, Breton ui, Welsh wy, Greek ōon, Latin ovum, Old Norse egg, Old High German ei, Gothic ada all meaning “egg.”


“hail,” also “farewell,” early 13c. (in reference to the Ave Maria), from Latin ave, second person singular imperative of avere “to be or fare well”…Ave Maria  modified form of the angelic salutation…  See ave + Maria.” ; “historically, ave was the common word for any bird…”

The literal root-word meaning of “ave Maria” is bird-of-the-sea:

 “In medieval poetry the Virgin Mary was plainly identified with the Muse [Triple Goddess]…in charge of the Cauldron of Cerridwen… The medieval Brigit shared the Muse-ship with…’Mary Gipsy’ or St. Mary of Egypt… This charming Virgin with the blue robe and pearl necklace was the ancient pagan Sea-goddess Marian in transparent disguise… Marian is the merry-maid, as ‘mermaid’ was once written… Every initiate of the Eleusinian Mysteries, which were of Pelasgian origin, went through a love rite with her representative after taking a cauldron bath… The Greeks called her Aphrodite (‘risen from sea foam’)…[and she] can be identified with the Moon-goddess Eurynome [‘wide rule’] whose statue…in Arcadia was a mermaid carved in wood.” –pp393-395, The White Goddess.

A curious turn of language for ‘cauldron’ in Welsh is the word ‘pair’ (or ‘peir’) and a secondary form ‘mair’, both translations for cauldron, according to Graves’s source. Their French homophones ‘pere’ and ‘mere’ describe parents, and interestingly, provide roots to the names Pierre and Marie which could otherwise be associated to ‘rock’ and ‘water’– an elemental pairing of the primal Earth itself. Or herself, as any sea bird would know. Perhaps in this ‘first couple’ of the Paris Pantheon, exhumed for the New Age Millenium, we have a Revelation of the Method that Michael Hoffman describes as the Alchemical Processing of Humanity:

 “The occult Cryptocracy processes the Group Mind of the masses through psychodrama. The alchemical and Rosicrucian command dogmas were literary works… The narrative, the plot, the characters and symbolism all constitute the imprinting that is one of the highest functions of cere-mon[y]… There is a dark poetry to ritual…, to twilight language, to the fantastic convergences known as coincidence. Most ‘conspiracy researchers’ miss these. The best investigator –of the occult or of almost anything else—has a child-like sense of curiosity and wonder about seemingly mundane things. John Stilgoe, professor of Landscape History at Harvard University, in his book Outside Lies Magic, writes of the ‘ordinary’ in our lives: ‘The whole concatenation of wild and artificial things, the natural ecosystem as modified by people over the centuries, the built environment layered over layers… becomes the theater that intrigues… fascinates… and above all expands any mind focused on it. Outside lies utterly ordinary space open to any casual explorer willing to find the extraordinary. Outside lies unprogrammed awareness…” –p7, Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare, 2001, Michael A. Hoffman II.

500 miles per gallon

We could all be averaging 500mpg without reinventing combustion motors– better yet, the vapor fuel design emits ZERO pollution. Watch the documentary ‘Gashole’


Here’s a re-post from 2012:

MPG on The Road Not Taken

Filed under: Modern History — jenniferlake @ 4:24 pm Edit This
Tags: 100mpg, fuel efficiency, Ron Laytner, Tom Ogle

When I see news about the price of gas or commercials for new cars and trucks touting twenty-or-thirty-something miles per gallon (or particularly during a shortage, outage, energy disaster or smog test!), it makes me think of Tom Ogle and his vapor-fuel system. I read about Tom a few years ago and his story becomes ever more poignant for its place in geopolitics and time.  

Ron Laytner wrote, “In 1978 I first interviewed Tom Ogle who created a device replacing the carburetor [that] allowed his 4,000 pound car to get 100 miles per gallon… Four years later Tom, at age 24, was in his grave and his invention, buried.” So Laytner is asking, “Did the world not go green because of a murder?…Tom said the 100mpg..was only the beginning of his newfound fuel efficiency.”

   “Tom felt confident that on the smaller, lighter cars..he could get nines times as much. That means..900 miles per gallon… ‘This is no hoax’, said Dr. Hawkins [Texas A&M engineer PhD, who approved and supported Tom’s system], ‘Ogle eliminated the carburetor and achieved what the gasoline internal combustion engine was supposed to do all along –to operate off fumes’… Seventy years ago Canadian Charles Nelson Pogue made headlines long before Tom Ogle when he drove a 1932 Ford 200 miles on a single gallon of gas… a test for The Ford Motor Company in Winnipeg…” ; Pogue’s story: 

   If Henry Ford was impressed in 1932, it was a complement by design when he unveiled his “Soybean Car”, made with soy-based plastic panels, “on August 13, 1941 at Dearborn festival… The car weighed 2000 lbs [1,000 less than his other models]… The exact ingredients of the plastic..are unknown because no record of the formula exists today… [Ford] also claimed that the plastic panels made the car safer than traditional steel cars; and that the car could even roll over without being crushed.” . Ford’s early cars were designed to run on alcohol.

   Then there’s Rudolf Diesel who invented his motor to run on peanut oil. Diesel disappeared from a train ride and was found dead 10 days later.

Laytner points out that another young American inventor who designed a dune buggy to run on water died at the height of his expectant success: “Stanley Allen Meyer..had twenty patents on many water-fueled inventions.”

GASHOLE from 2008 is a fine documentary as these things go, and worth every minute of your time but it’s not without a few major holes of its own. At one hour and 9 minutes it mentions Peak Oil, a subject much talked about after 9-11, brought to my personal attention by Mike Ruppert and his website “From the Wilderness,” as I was catching on. Ruppert passed away in 2014 but From the Wilderness is still online here

The man who ‘authored’ the Peak Oil scenario in 1956 was  Shell Oil Co. geologist Marion King Hubbert and he was tutored in the Peak Oil perspective by the US Atomic Energy Commission, in preparation for the 1956 conference of the American Petroleum Institute. What seems highly relevant about Hubbert today is that in 1932 at Columbia University he was one of the 2-man cofounders of Technocracy Inc. Note that in that ‘Gashole’, it was the Shell scientists who achieved the “1000 miles per gallon’ breakthrough.


Here’s another 2012 repost from this blog, part of the JFK Conspiracy Con posts, which originates from my point of view of the crippling disease polio caused by radiation poisoning and the urgency in the ‘50s to bring the oil majors into nuclear industry.


PEAK OIL, lowering the boom

The Atomic Energy Act of 1954 set a plan in motion to put nuclear power into private hands, which the AEC launched by building the first commercial energy reactor in Shippingport Pennsylvania, ceremoniously inaugerated on May 26 of 1955, which was just after the “Cutter Incident” as the Salk polio vaccine was released on the public, during Operation Teapot at NTS. Lewis Strauss was invited to speak at Shippingport’s start-up: “In the course of a brief remark, I ventured a prediction that nuclear power plants of much greater size and more sophisticated technology would soon be built.” [p324, Men and Decisions].  At the same time, a Shell Oil Co. geologist named Marion King Hubbert began working for the Atomic Energy Commission. As Hubbert recalled it: “In the summer…spring and summer of 1955, I had begun service and had a couple of preliminary meetings [with] the Advisory Committee of the..Atomic Energy Commission on Waste Disposal. Land Nuclear Waste Disposal… In the course of those hearings, I had obtained information which I had not had before on the magnitude of the energy that could be obtained from fission… previously I’d regarded nuclear energy as unpromising because of the scarcity of uranium and thorium… So, this awareness of the magnitude of energy..changed the picture in my mind… So that, in turn, reflected on my previous analysis of energy based on fossil fuels.

   “Some time in the fall of 1955…I was on a trip to Denver on company business..[and] encountered one of the Shell production engineers whom I knew from Houston, and we had breakfast together… [He] remarked that he was..chairman of the program committee of the forthcoming American Petroleum Institute March. And they were looking for someone who could give them a broad brush picture of the overall world energy situation…” 

   According to the website, ,  Hubbert had only recently obtained sufficient information from the AEC to give a presentation, and “at the time he was convinced that atomic energy was a viable source for future world energy needs [though] Hubbert did ultimately change his mind.” Later in life, when this interview took place, Hubbert’s opinion of nuclear power was “the sooner we get rid of it the better off we’re going to be.”  Nevertheless, Hubbert carried the torch for Peak Oil (that reserves would ‘peak’ in 1970 and thereafter decline toward a global shortage) from the time of his March 1956 presentation to the API in San Antonio and for the rest of his life. John F. Kennedy almost caused Peak Oil to become undone by marginalizing Hubbert in favor of a USGS report stating there was plenty of oil. Hubbert also later said of his Peak Oil theory that “there was not a lot of analysis that went into it” but he still defended it. In 1964, Hubbert quit Shell and went to work for the USGS… “this led to a 1967..paper showing that discoveries..were declining..back to within the original [1956 predicted range]… The U.S. peaked in 1970.”

Nature Fakers


hand drawn ‘radiobes’

Submitted as evidence for Virus on Trial.

Before you read on, though, know that I’m posting this as part of the Full Spectrum Dominance paradigm of life on earth coupled to the replacement narrative of ourselves. The techno-metabiology in practice is an AI-assisted full spectrum exploiter and we do not know if there is a dimension left anywhere in which we can thrive. But I can suggest, by it’s ‘shortage’, that LOVE, and the respect for life that promotes it, creates those dimensions without any technology, spells, symbols, geometries or magic.

I’m borrowing my title from a caption written underneath the photo- portrait of a renown botanist named Charles Stuart Gager who wrote a book in 1908 called “Effects of the Rays of Radium on Plants.”

The source of Gager’s photo is from the 2017 lecture presentation “Radium and the Secret of Life”, a recent book by Professor Luis Campos, chair of astrobiology and history at the University of New Mexico.

I recommend the video for taking the road from the radium craze of the early 1900s to the dropping of atomic bombs, and Campos’s emphasis on the biological work of Hermann J. Muller, a mutation expert who predicted the types and proportions of chronic illnesses we would experience as our exposures to radiation increased.  When Muller won the Nobel Prize in 1946 he said this:

  “We can…draw the practical lesson from the fact of the great majority of mutations being undesirable [and] that their further random production in ourselves should so far as possible be rigorously avoided…    [W]ith certainty from experiments on lower organisms that all high-energy radiation must produce such mutations in man, it becomes an obligation…to insist that simple precautions are taken…whenever people are exposed to such radiation, either in industry or medical practice. And with the coming increasing use of atomic energy, even for peacetime purposes, the problem will become very important of insuring that the human germ plasm—the all-important material of which we are the temporary custodians—is effectively protected from this additional and potent source of permanent contamination.”

Campos adds his commentary, “so you won’t be surprised then to learn that Muller was an early proponent of a Cold War bunker for human reproduction.”

No, no surprise. If the early uses of radium are enough to start your imagination rolling, consider the industry-in-progress that brought on the Manhattan Project and the postwar tests at Bikini Atoll called ‘Crossroads.’ By the time Muller made his Nobel speech in ‘46, the train had long since left the station in a wake of permanent contamination. Coincident to Muller’s prize was that of Wendall Stanley, the biochemist who crystallized tobacco mosaic virus (TMV), introduced on the blog in Planting Viruses Two

Watch Radium and the Secret of Life here

Much earlier in 1916, Muller remarked that “a curious similarity…exists between two of the main problems of physics and of biology. The central problem of biological evolution is in the nature of mutation… tho’ a control of it might obviously place the process of evolution in our hands…[And] if a means were found of influencing it, we might have inanimate matter practically at our disposal, and would hold the key to unthinkable stores of concentrated energy that would render possible any achievement with inanimate things. Mutation and Transmutation—the two keystones of our rainbow bridges to power!” [minute 39 of Radium and the Secret of Life]



1903 is the year Professor Campos pinpoints as the start of the radium craze which melded into the parallel X-ray craze of the times –likewise in respect to promoting medical cure-alls—with the accessible x-rays inducing immense curiosity, and as Muller found out in the ‘20s, infinitely more ‘productive’ for mutation work and the study of “genetic engineering”.

“Muller was born and raised in New York City earning his way with scholarship to Columbia where he began studying biology and genetics. In 1912 his experimental work with Drosophila (fruit flies) led to an understanding of genetic inheritance and the theory of “balanced lethals”.  Julian Huxley called Muller to come and teach at the Rice Institute in Houston from 1915 to 1918, thereafter he returned to Columbia and developed methods of quantitative mutation study. In 1920, Muller went to the University of Texas at Austin where he produced his Nobel quality work. In 1932, Hermann Muller was invited to study and teach in the USSR which he did for five years…”

Muller’s sponsor in radium work, zoologist “Julian Huxley(1887-1975); brother of Aldous and Andrew Huxley, grandsons of Thomas Henry Huxley; Julian Huxley “caused considerable controversy by advocating the deliberate physical and mental improvement of the human race through eugenics… he campaigned for the birth control movement… The Oxford-trained zoologist was hired by the new (in 1912) Rice Institute of Houston Texas as chief of its biology department (1912-1916). He returned to England to join army Intelligence, WWI… In 1946 he became the first director-general of the United Nations Educational and Scientific Organization (UNESCO)…”

read more, ; “Polio Forever” is a resource ‘notebook’ that I posted in 2010 after learning that the flu-like illness and paralysis was caused by radiation and chemicals, not viruses or germs. Visit the “X-ray and Radium” page for a timeline and more citations about the effects of radioactivity like this:

“Leukemia and Medical Radiation”, Pediatrics, Vol 23, No.6, June 1959 “Polhemums and Koch… provide new evidence that leukemia is causally related to medical radiation exposure”.

“Leukemia can also be produced, in man and mouse, by x-rays… It is tempting to speculate that the x-rays triggered the production of a latent virus, or if one chooses to look at it another way, that x-ray provoked the release from the cell of a bit of genetic material that then began to act as a virus.” [p29, Sloan Kettering report 1963]


Radium’s discoverers, Marie and Pierre Curie, were honored jointly in 1903 with a Nobel Prize shared with Henri Becquerel, for the discovery of radioactivity. It was the third staging of the prize; the first given in 1901 to Wilhelm Roentgen for X-rays.  Pierre addressed the 1903 assembly by saying, “It is possible to conceive that in criminal hands radium might prove very dangerous, and the question therefore arises whether it be to the advantage of humanity to know the secrets of nature, whether we be sufficiently mature to profit by them, or whether that knowledge may not prove harmful. Take for instance, the discoveries of Nobel –powerful explosives have made it possible for men to achieve admirable things, but they are also a terrible means of destruction in the hands of those great criminals who draw nations into war. I am among those who believe with Nobel that humanity will obtain more good than evil from future discoveries.”

You will hear Professor Campos say that the radium-using nature fakers were characterized in their own time as “mad” scientists. The overwhelming destruction and distortion of induced mutations on living things, we know, results in a loss of meaning—deletion of genetic information within the system. If there was any long-term good in it, no one could then say. The answer was out there somewhere over the rainbow bridge.

Pierre Curie, the crystallographer, subjected himself to radium experiments, famously exposing his arm until persistent suppurating wounds developed. In 1906 he was killed in the streets of Paris, caught and crushed under the wheels of a horse-drawn wagon. Marie lived until 1934, succumbing at last to leukemia. Her body and her lab notes are perpetually stored in lead casings.

Hermann Muller went on to discover great things about our chromosomes and genes, such as ‘telomeres’. Perhaps he is a superhero and not the mad scientist afterall—but you decide. Good or evil. I don’t know if Muller could actually be a model hero for super-power, but it was interesting to learn that Superman (Kal-EL) was not conceived as a good guy:

Superman was originally a bald madman created by Siegel and Shuster who used his telepathic abilities to wreak havoc on humanity. He appeared in Siegel and Shuster’s book Science Fiction.[6] Siegel then commented, “What if this Superman was a force for good instead of evil?”

Our Superman came on the comic scene in June of 1938 and got his image makeover during the first year. By 1939, he was much improved and using his vital powers, like X-ray vision, for Good. When not crippled by ‘kryptonite’ (radium) he could fly over a rainbow.  For a lot of American kids, he was the Man, whose timely appearance spirited them through the years of World War II. My dad told me that.

1939 was also a peak in entertainment for taking us over the rainbow to OZ. We arrived there in a whirlwind of a twister and followed the yellow-brick road (uranium yellow-cake anyone?) to a land of wizards; World War II was the “wizards war” and it changed things permanently, but in 1939 few of us, our parents and grandparents, would know it. Maybe we should remember that Superman was an alien, Oz was a dream, and the yellow-brick road was the “lowest lane”. Wake up now, Dotty, there’s no place like home.


Professor Campos accepted a new position at Rice University this past January 2022, no longer the NASA Chair of Astrobiology at the Library of Congress.  Susan Schneider from the University of Connecticut , for one, replaced him: NASA’s 2019-2020 chair of astrobiology at the Library went to Susan Schneider ; author of four books including the most recent  Artificial You, AI and the Future of Your Mind

Rice, at Houston, offered Campos the same essential job of coordinating coursework in the History of Science, Technology and Innovation.  He had written before that, in 2020, more about Hermann Muller and Muller’s friendships with Julian Huxley and Carl Sagan: “Genetic Sputniks, how Space Age visionaries primed us for synthetic biology”

[excerpted here] …” For Huxley’s long-time friend, the geneticist H. J. Muller,  the larger history of life on Earth and its future cosmic prospects began with the most remarkable material of heredity itself: the chromosomes. Having won the Nobel Prize for his early work showing that X-rays cause mutations in fruit flies (and by extension, in all living organisms), Muller wrote a manifesto, Out of the Night (1935), in which he predicted that modifying chromosomes would be part of the future of biology…  Muller believed that the thread of evolution and heredity could be re-woven by human hands—that life on Earth was a substrate for other possible biological futures… One day, a few years after he had won the Nobel Prize, Muller received a letter from a precocious 23-year-old by the name of Carl Sagan…the budding planetary scientist and astrobiologist… They spent their time together exchanging scientific theories and fictional visions of biological possibility, repeatedly discussing the limits of human experience and the new forms of life otherworldly environments might hold. Mars was a common theme… Buried deep in the Library of Congress is a personal copy of Muller’s Studies in Genetics, stamped ‘Compliments of the Author,’ and containing an inscription from Muller to Sagan: “Here is a record of some explorations into the universe inside—explorations of a type now as common as a voyage across the Atlantic… What a triumph it will be when we can coordinate and combine our outer and inner quests… greetings to you and yours for 1962-1963, and may we some day meet ‘in spirit’ on the tundras of Mars.’ …Muller’s dreams of biological possibilities—of life as it could be—extended from astrobiology to synthetic biology, not to mention eugenics. There were ‘new opportunities’ afoot in the 1950s, Muller felt, with ‘the strange winds that are now blowing in from the atom, the gene, and outer space.’ … Might space itself be a vast cosmic laboratory of nature’s own efforts at synthetic biology? If we might, echoing both nature and Darwin, engineer ‘endless forms of life most beautiful’ here on this planet, then what untold worlds of biodiversity might exist on habitable elsewheres?”

NASA’s Chair of Astrobiology at the Library of Congress is named for Baruch ‘Barry’ Blumberg: “Blumberg was awarded the 1976 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine for discovery of the Hepatitis B virus and development of a vaccine to prevent Hepatitis B infection. He served as the NASA Astrobiology Institute director from 1999 to 2002. The institute’s mission is to promote interdisciplinary research in astrobiology, train the next generation of astrobiologists, provide scientific and technical leadership for NASA space missions, and share astrobiology’s discoveries with learners of all ages.”

Historical notes:

Radium, element 88 (isotope 226); according to this source, required ten tons of pitchblende for Marie Curie to make 1mg of radium ; Radium production in 1903 France was organized by chemist Emile Armet de Lisle with financing from Henri de Rothschild ;Various members of the James Mayer Rothschild family, of the French banking house, sponsored the work of radium production in addition to support of Louis Pasteur.

“Radioluminescent paint was invented in 1908 by Sabin Arnold von Sochocky[2][failed verificationsee discussion] and originally incorporated radium-226. Radium paint was widely used for 40 years on the faces of watches, compasses, and aircraft instruments, so they could be read in the dark.”

Circa 1913, luminous radium paint and “radium fertilizer” were generated at commodity levels; here’s a radium fertilizer booklet, published 1915 ; The US government stepped in at this point and reserved to itself all radium-bearing ores.


Tobacco and sunflowers were among the crops targeted for radium fertilizer, and both readily uptake metal contaminants— I posit that largescale dumping of DU tailings was used; According to the EPA today , any commercial fertilizer has naturally occurring radium (known as NORMs, Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials). EPA explains: “Radium radioactively decays to release radon gas, which then rises from the soil around the plants. As the plant grows, the radon from fertilizer, along with naturally-occurring radon in surrounding soil and rocks, cling to the sticky hairs on the bottom of tobacco leaves, called trichomes.”,on%20the%20bottom%20of%20tobacco%20leaves%2C%20called%20trichomes.

In Radium and the Secret of Life we see this image of tobacco plants on the cover of the 1929 Journal of Heredity.

From the Office of Human Radiation Experiments, Oral History of biophysicist Robert E. Rowland: …”There were some efforts as early as 1945, ’46, to go out to a very famous place — to us — called the Elgin State Hospital for the Mentally Insane, because at that time, there were people living there who were injected with radium in 1931 — and ultimately ’32 and ’33, we learned — as a cure for schizophrenia… well, it certainly wasn’t a successful treatment… Radium is a bone-seeker, which means it has the potential to stay in the human body a long time, and radium has a long half-life, 13 so it indicates it will stay in the human body for a long time… we didn’t know at the time they [Elgin patients] had had too much radium. But, they were right in the range where malignancies were induced. They were just perfect for the induction of malignancies…”


  Follow the yellow brick road

L.Frank Baum published The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in 1900 and went on to write a science-fiction fantasy the next year called The Master Key, an Electrical Fairy Tale which one reviewer remarks “Augured the internet, google, stun guns, TV, computers, wireless telephones…”  Baum had been a small newspaper publisher and, at the time of writing these books, was a Chicago-based reporter, surmising a well-informed status with technical advancements.

 In the Oz stories, the yellow brick road exists only in Munchkin land and not the other 3 quadrants of the kingdom—a kingdom ‘usurped’ by a charismatic wizard who flew in on a balloon, named Oscar Diggs. (Don’t those two guys in a photo with ‘radium’ flowers look like Munchkins next to the plants?) The people of Oz accepted Diggs’s leadership because they believed his arrival to be the fulfillment of a long-awaited prophecy and it was Diggs who authorized the building of the yellow brick road (YBR) and the capital of Emerald City. When Dorothy drops in on a twister, her house kills the Witch of the East and leaves only her “silver shoes” intact—the silvery metal slippers are magically flexible, protective and ‘charmed’– and with the help of a good witch, transferred to Dorothy for her journey on the YBR where she meets her companions who together test their mettle and evade the other ‘lions and tigers and bears’ —Britain, China, and Russia, perhaps. The silvery uranium metal mined in the United States became a sought-after steel alloy in the 1870s. Any ‘man of steel’ would seek its strength, but most of the uses for uranium up to those days were ancient in practice as yellow paint. If ‘yellowcake’ was the packed powder for the paint and dye trade, I couldn’t say, but Baum references his yellow bricks as painted and ‘glowing’ even in the dark, suggestive of the radium discovered in 1898.  As Radium and the Secret of Life points out, 1903 is the year radium went big –and so did the Wizard of Oz. Launched as a stage extravaganza in Chicago in 1902, it landed on Broadway in 1903, running from January to October and returning again in 1904. The wildly popular Wizard took the road and toured the US with its Broadway cast through 1911, after which Frank Baum moved his family to Los Angeles and got into the early movie business for a time before his death in 1919. Supported by a social club of boosters called the “Uplifters”, Baum and cohorts founded the Oz Film Manufacturing Company, making 5 feature-length sequels to the Wizard before their company was merged into ‘Metro’.

“The Lofty and Exalted Order of Uplifters”, founded 1913 by Harry Marston Haldeman and named by Frank Baum, was a select social unit of the Los Angeles Athletic Club. As a Theosophist Baum  “was in agreement with the Theosophical belief that man on Earth was only one step on a great ladder that passed through many states of consciousness, through many universes, to a final state of Enlightenment.”  

Radium’s flying monkeys unleashed by the West may or may not have been what Frank Baum was thinking about in 1900, but it works for me right down to the choice of color. Marie Curie, it’s said, was bewitched by the blue ‘fairy lights’ emanating from her radium crucibles—Light being it’s only proof as a residue. Radioactivity, proved on glass photo plates by the Curies’ friend Becquerel, opens another chapter of high-tech exploration besides genetics which was to become the province of movie-making.  It was a swift transition into the polymer chemistry of light-sensitive plastics from movies on celluloid that came with a ready-made industry. The famous publicly-viewed Lumiere films of 1895 were coincident with Roentgen’s x-rays and a burgeoning marketplace of advanced ideas–unlimited free energy being chief among them.  Until viewing Radium and the Secrets of Life, I hadn’t known that “radium stoves” for room warming were among the novelties, but it’s no surprise to find them among the fantasy.

Four Supreme Human Freedoms

UNESCO Courier, issue 1951

Article by Sir Robert Watson Watt. “Four Supreme Human Freedoms”

[edited]  …”the Articles of the Universal Declaration [of Human Rights] primarily delineate a solid foundation of bodily and material securities on which must rest the supreme freedoms of Articles 18, 19, 26 and 27…  I go so far as to select from within those Articles which I regard as the keystones of its arch. Article 18 declares that ‘Everyone has the right to freedom of thought –to change his belief—to manifest his belief in teaching, practice—‘, [and] Article 19 declares that ‘Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression –to hold opinions without interferences –to seek, receive, and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers’… Article 26 declares that ‘Everyone has the right to education –directed to the full development of the human personality and to the strengthening of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms—to promote understanding, tolerance, and friendship.’  Article 27 [is declared as] freely to participate in the cultural life of the community, to enjoy the arts and to share in scientific advancement and its benefits.’  Article 26 is, in fact, the radical antidote to this disease of restrictive practices…”

U.N. Taking Down Private Websites

For the record, UNCTED, the counter-terrorism directorate, was initiated by a series of resolutions begun in 1998 following the bombing of two US embassies on August 7 (1998) in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam. The UN has a third operating headquarters in Nairobi Kenya, in addition to New York and Geneva.

The CTEDirectorate was put in place as a working committee (CTC) on September 28, 2001 in response to 9-11, following a 5-minute convention to ratify Resolution 1373 and ‘recertified’ on March 26, 2004 which is two weeks after the Madrid train bombings (March 11, 2004)


“The United Nations Office at Nairobi, the UN headquarters in Africa, was established by the General Assembly in 1996…”


“On August 7, 1998, nearly simultaneous bombs blew up in front of the American embassies in Nairobi, Kenya, and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Two hundred and twenty-four people died in the blasts …” There’s a handy toggle at this FBI site to compare the damages to Oklahoma City if you’re inclined.

…”The FBI was able to quickly link the attacks to bin Laden’s al Qaida organization.  In retaliation, President Clinton ordered airstrikes against sites linked to bin Laden in Sudan and Afghanistan. However, this action failed to kill bin Laden or neutralize al Qaida. In November 1998, the United States indicted bin Ladin and 21 other accomplices for the attacks…  [The Clinton Library has] materials regarding Mullah Mohammad Omar, the founder and spiritual leader of the Taliban, and Osama bin Laden. Under Omar’s direction, the Taliban provided sanctuary to al Qaida and its leader Osama bin Laden despite demands by the United Nations Security Council that he be handed over for trial for his involvement in the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings… “

Here’s Clinton’s August 1998 address to the country

From here, sniff out the mission creeps… It may have something to do with the US Congress rejecting United Nations control over the internet in 2012. The UN has governance over LEO satellites and Tucows (yes, “two cows”, formerly Infonautics) was going big and wireless in 2012. According to wikipedia, Tucows, operating out of Toronto, is “the second-largest domain registrar worldwide”

About the same time in 2012, UN was ratifying its Berlin Space Protocol

*In 2012, the “PROTOCOL TO THE CONVENTION ON INTERNATIONAL INTERESTS IN MOBILE EQUIPMENT ON MATTERS SPECIFIC TO SPACE ASSETS” or Berlin Space Protocol, aiming at helping bring much-needed financial resources to the New Space community, namely those small start-up companies that have emerged as a result of the booming commercial space sector, was concluded. It constitutes the third protocol to the Cape Town Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment…”

UNIDROIT –for harmonization and unification of private law—is an independent intergovernmental organization  that prepares and convenes contractual agreements. Originally established in Rome 1926 as an advisory group to the League of Nations, UNIDROIT was reorganized in 1940 to continue its work in the present. This ‘group’ will likely prepare agreements and contracts governing satellites.

In December (2-4) 2019, the UN convened to prepare cybersecurity documents as a function of its disarmament protocols, a “first ever” convention of its type, according to this Microsoft doc however, Microsoft notes that, “Discussions about the role of international law have been part of UN cybersecurity discussions since 1998. In the 2013 GGE (Group of Governmental Experts) report, 15 states’ representatives agreed that (a) international law, including the UN Charter, applies to Information and Communication Technologies (ICT); and (b) applying that law is ‘essential’ to maintaining peace and stability…”

Microsoft, a nongovernmental participant in the Group of Governmental Experts, claims its experience of the ‘threat landscape’ is one in which “We see this firsthand every day where our Microsoft Threat Intelligence Center (MSTIC) and other security teams work to analyze trillions of signals to identify…and protect our customers… Our security researchers have been able to observe trends in tactics, techniques, and processes…”


Background on automated AI surveillance begins in 1971: › index › aimagazine 

“DARPA’s pioneering research on automatic transcription, translation, and content analysis were major artificial intelligence success stories that changed science fiction into social fact. During a 40 year period, 10 seminal DARPA programs produced breakthrough capabilities that were further improved and widely deployed in popular consumer products…  [Those] programs from 1971 through 2011… demonstrate[d] systems that could recognize unrehearsed spontaneous speech from an open population, a task many of us believed was impossible in our lifetime.”

–It began with the research plan known as ‘SUR’  (Speech Understanding Research), leading to a text analysis program in 1991 called TIPSTER.

   “Since its beginning in 1991, the TIPSTER Program has sponsored multiple efforts to advance text handling technologies and deploy the resulting advanced capabilities into the workplace. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) have jointly funded and managed the program, in close collaboration with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Naval Command Control Ocean Surveillance Center (NCCOSC). A TIPSTER advisory Board was recently formed with members representing users from other Government agencies interested in automated text processing, such as Department of Energy (DOE), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Internal Revenue Service (IRS), National Science Foundation (NSF), Treasury Department and other Government agencies.

   “The Architecture has been designed to meet a large number of text handling requirements for CIA, DIA, and NSA… However, it meets only those requirements having to do with Document Detection and Information Extraction functions. Requirements for other functions, such as Machine Translation or Optical Character Recognition must be met outside the TIPSTER Architecture.

    “As of 1996 several TIPSTER applications were either underway or in the planning process. The most significant of these included PRIDES, ADEPT, NDIC Pilot, and Hookah. The TIPSTER User Interface Toolkit, or TUIT, is a toolkit for producing multilingual text.”

…So, this is a taste of automated AI design overriding and undermining ideas like our noble freedoms.

The Great Space Invasion Begins…

The Cellular Phone Task Force reports:

Operating, Approved and Proposed
While the attention of a terrified world has been riveted on a virus, and while concern about radiation has been focused on 5G on the ground, the assault on the heavens has reached astronomical proportions. During the past two years, the number of satellites circling the earth has increased from 2,000 to 4,800, and a flood of new projects has brought the number of operating, approved, and proposed satellites to at least 441,449. And that number only includes low-earth-orbit (LEO)satellites that will reside in the ionosphere…


See the List of satellite companies and


Low earth orbiters, from “operating” to “proposed”, is a one hundred-fold increase!!

Watch this 2019 42minute documentary, (already ‘dated’ in its assessment of only ‘thousands’ of satellites) called ‘Internet from Space’ describing the equipment and skills needed to maintain a single system ‘megaconstellation’ of several hundred orbiters


Satellite system governance and orbiter assignments are under the control of the International Telecommunication Union, the oldest continuing agency of the United Nations
