"Code of Silence" by Bruce Springsteen


There's a code of silence that we don't dare speak
There's a wall between us and a river so deep
And we keep pretending that there's nothing wrong
But there's a code of silence and it can't go on


Is the truth so elusive, so elusive as you can see
that it ain't enough baby
To bridge the distance between you and me
There's a list of grievance 100 miles long
There's a code of silence and it can't go on



I'm Alan Watt and this is Cutting Through the Matrix on September 26th 2007.


For newcomers, check into for lots of free downloadable information on many topics to do with the history of the western world, in fact the whole world from ancient time to the modern times. I link in the agendas of powerful groups and institutions, the monied system that is being forced upon the whole planet and I also go into the scientific realms because the scientists are employed by elitists to direct the world. You always direct the world of you want to maintain power intergenerationally. You can also check into for downloadable transcripts in other languages.


Now I don't know how many people know about the upcoming coordinated exercise that's going to take place in Canada and the U.S. and other countries, the UK et cetera in October. It's to be the biggest anti-terrorism, really marshal law type exercise ever conducted – probably even outside of the two world wars in fact. They didn't have anything quite as big as this.  This is an actual press release I'm going to read after the following messages, but it's amazing to see all of this hype taking place over an event from 9/11 that had to happen in 2001 for the New American Century group to get their agenda steamrolling ahead, and they've been spending money like it grew on trees, which it in a sense it does because it's just our labor and the grandchildren's labor to come. That's all money really is and that's what debt is too. They're spending billions and billions of dollars on this hype, hype, hype, terror, terror, terror and how no one really in the Western Hemisphere can be trusted with conducting themselves in a normal fashion. We're all at risk you see. We don't know what we're going to do next, because all of this hype is nothing to do with the Middle East or Islam or any of that. It's to do with training the public, the whole planet really into doing what they're told and also to check everything that you purchase, every penny you earn has to be filled in triplicate and sent to governmental departments because they want to know everything you're doing. It's all about you – you and me and everyone else on the planet.


This is totalitarianism and it doesn't matter really what other names you give it. If it walks like a duck and quakes like a duck, it's a duck – and we're seeing the biggest duck ever invented come down the pike. Now the following messages are coming up. I'm going to read this actual U.S. NorthCom handout that was given to different groups and the media after the following messages.



"Everybody Knows" by Leonard Cohen

Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
That's how it goes
Everybody knows



Hello. Alan Watt back here with Cutting Through the Matrix, and I'm about to read the press release that USNORTHCOM gave out to the media.  I don't know if it's published much in the U.S. They seem to be the last to be told about anything that's happening in fact. I heard the other day from someone who said his mother didn't even know there was a European Union, and that's how you can be fooled when you think you live on the cutting edge of society with 19,000-odd radio stations. You can't imagine that you’re not being told any truth, because it's just as easy to control 19,000 stations as half a dozen if they're all getting their information from the same source.


Here's USNORTHCOM. This exercise is called "Vigilant Shield 08". It says:


             North American Aerospace Defense Command and U.S. Northern Command along with U.S. Pacific Command, the Department of Homeland Security as well as local, state and other federal responders will exercise their response abilities against a variety of potential threats during Exercise Vigilant Shield ‘08, a Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff-designated, North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) and U.S. Northern Command (USNORTHCOM)-sponsored, and U.S. Joint Forces Command-supported Department of Defense exercise for homeland defense and defense support of civil authorities missions."


Alan:  They love these long drawn out nonsensical statements, don't they?  They even have their own PR department that works on this.  These are the guys that market all this stuff to your brain.


It says:


             "VS-08 will be conducted concurrent with Top Officials 4 (TOPOFF 4)…"


Alan:  By God. They probably have a whole team working on that one.


             "…the nation’s premier exercise of terrorism preparedness sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security, and several other linked exercises as part of the National Level Exercise 1-08. These linked exercises will take place October 15-20 and are being conducted throughout the United States and in conjunction with several partner nations including Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom, as well as the Territory of Guam.

VS-08 and National Level Exercise 1-08 will provide local, state, tribal…"


Alan:  Interesting, tribal.


             "…interagency, Department of Defense, and non-governmental organizations…"



Alan:  Now here's your non-governmental organizations that sprouted up like weeds and all got financed from the top down, like the Rockefeller Foundations and so on. That's who sponsors these non-governmental organizations, which used to be called the Soviet in the Soviet Union.


It says:


             "…and agencies involved in homeland security and homeland defense the opportunity to participate in a full range of exercise scenarios that will better prepare participants to prevent and respond to national crises. The participating organizations will conduct a multi-layered, civilian-led response to a national crisis.


Alan:  Now I don't know if you know but many big organizations including GM and so on have been taking some of their top people and training them to be civilian leaders and training them to help herd the public along particular directions in a time of national crisis. That's where to go for safety and all this kind of stuff. This is a full-blown multi-integrated scenario that's coming along as to their crisis preparedness.


It says:


             "USNORTHCOM’s primary exercise venues for VS-08 include locations in Oregon, Arizona and a cooperative venue with USPACOM in the Territory of Guam. NORAD’s aerospace detection and defense events will take place across all the exercise venues, to exercise the ability to mobilize resources for aerospace defense, aerospace control, maritime warning, and coordination of air operations in a disaster area."



Alan:  There's no doubt the maritime warning also takes into consideration all these flotillas of gunships they put on the Great Lakes, which are really there to keep the U.S. citizenry in, in times of plague and so on in case they try to flee. This is a huge, huge exercise and I have no doubt they'll be a lot of nervous people carrying guns around and wearing these fancy Ninja Turtle outfits – the kind that you saw in the Star Wars movies back in the '70’s. It's quite amazing they actually knew what they would be wearing back then. However, if you're in the know you don't have much problem in equipping actors with the right kind of suits.


You see, there's nothing new under the sun and it's true. There's nothing new in this whole scenario, because I used to wonder when I was a child, I could see how Britain and Europe were being integrated into a European Union, but I knew that the U.S. would have to be approached differently because they had an idea of a vague thing called “freedom” quite a few years ago and individual rights, and probably it was the only country on the planet that still had a vestige of this thing called "individual rights."  They've done a lot in the last 40 years to make people give up those individual rights and encourage this sort of herd mentality. It's been very, very successful, so most folk today don't really mind giving up their privacy and all their rights.


There's just a few who can still think that are the problem. This kind of exercise is meant to take care of those kinds of people, little groups of people, thinkers – people who have “speak-crime,” stuff like that, they speak what they think. That's called "speak-crime" you see, and before you speak you have “thought-crime” like George Orwell said. That's where it's all going and this is going to cost the U.S. taxpayer a bundle as the dollar of course is falling, because it's following to align itself with Canadian dollar. In fact, the two have been on par now for weeks. All they have to do now is create some kind of general sales tax like Canada has, to bring the U.S. up to the same standard and then integrate the countries. It will be much easier. That's all that's happening right now. All of this kind of exercise scenario is to take care of backlashes from the public as they get less and less, and as prices go up and up to match Canada's, because we pay a lot more in Canada for basic things like food and so on than they do in the U.S.


In Europe they brought in Value Added Tax to police the public and it went up to about 15 percent at one time on every purchase of every item. In Canada, they tried to bring in the Value Added Tax when Brian Mulroney was in. It didn't really float too well so they called it General Sales Tax instead and slapped it on, but in the U.S. they don't have that kind of tax so it's time that they did to bring it in line with Canada, because there's no way that Canada's going to decrease its prices to match the U.S. The U.S. will have to come up to Canada's standard and then once we're both “harmonized” as they call it – they love this word “harmony,” they’re great singers at the top – they will bring us all down to a state near Mexico and Mexico will come up a little bit from where they are and there'll be this happy medium. A bigger harmony, the tripartite type harmony. That's what it's all about. We're integrating and all of these preparedness exercises are to do with the integration and all the fallout that has to ensue from it as the old American way of life, whatever is left of it, is gone.


Now I talked to a teller in the bank a few weeks ago and I mentioned casually that we're integrating, that's why the U.S. dollar was on par with Canada and she said, "That will never happen," and then under her breath absentmindedly she said, "It wouldn't matter anyway. We're pretty well the same," and she was quite correct. It also told me that subconsciously she will accept this. She has already been programmed to accept it. Consciously she would say no, no but subconsciously she already accepts it through her programming through TV, all the little bits and bites of information that's been fed into her has made up her mind for her and she doesn't even know it; and that's how most people are. They're conditioned for every phase as it goes.


Really, what's the difference between Canada and America today? There’s none at all, because we have the same Hollywood giving us the same culture. We've had that for the last 40, 50 years really. It's all the same culture. In fact, it’s the same culture worldwide. Go into the 1960’s, read the newspaper articles from Britain to do with The Royal Institute for International Affairs and the American branch of the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations).  Look at the meetings they had in London, England in late '60’s to do with who would be responsible for creating the future society by directing the culture.  Britain tried with its little Pinewood studios and the BBC, but it wasn't up to the kind of stuff that Hollywood could crank out, so they decided that Hollywood and the New York based industry would give culture to the world. They would be the ones who would broadcast to the world and the children would mimic. They’d copy, they’d emulate what they saw, and that's already happened.


So the teller was right for reasons she didn't understand. We're already pretty well much the same and even the accents it said in the 1960’s would change because the children would mimic the universal new American Transatlantic accent that would come across on television and radio; and that's happened too. If you listen to even Canadian children, they copy the California type actress and actors they hear on their favorite teenie-bopper shows. That's how you create culture and that's how it's copied by the public. Again, read Plato's "Republic."  Read all of his works in fact because he gives you the whole scenario how to create culture, how to change culture and how the public will always adapt step-by-step without realizing it into the new culture.


I'll be back after the following messages.

Hi folks. Alan Watt back with Cutting Through the Matrix, just going over the craziness of this world. It's an organized craziness though. It's only crazy for those public down below who are suspicious about things but they don't really know what's going on and don't really care to know what's going on. They're kind of nervous about things, namely about the dollar falling and that kind of stuff. Will their own personal life be altered by high prices and all that kind of stuff. They literally don't really know what's happening and don't care to know, so don't waste your time on those ones. Look for the ones who are trying to come alive and give them the information to wake them up faster.


Now I think we've got Roger from Tennessee on the line. Are you there, Roger?


Roger:  Yes. How are you today?


Alan:  Not so bad.


Roger:  You know when you were talking about people that you come in contact with that seem to be just totally apathetic and uninterested, and the way things are going, it kind of reminds me of this movie and there's an analysis to be made between the society we live in and the mental hospital in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" really.  Most particularly how ultimately the one who is really the sane one is considered the problem, and the ones who are under medication and subdued are the ones who are easy to control, and especially when they've got all the doctors around what are we going to do with this guy? The nurse said we can help him, and their ultimate solution to the problem was to lobotomize the guy and make him just like everyone else.


Alan:  What you saw is the system versus the individual. That's right on.


Roger:  These group-think programs that they have brings to mind Alcoholics Anonymous. You know I see this program – I've done my own research and it always seemed odd to me that it had so much power within the legal system with judges forcing people to attend these meetings.  I did some research and one of the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous was mentored by Carl Jung, who said that his situation was pretty much hopeless and that he needed to find some kind of spiritual help to get him out of his problem, so he joined up with this Oxford group which was I guess a minister who got a lot of influence. So there's these influences from Oxford. There's influences from Carl Jung and you know I look at the whole program. They've got the pyramid with one side it says "Unity," one side it says "Service."  It's a really sick program if you think about it, considering that a lot of these judges are Masons, you wonder, and a lot of these meetings are held in Mason Halls, you wonder if a strong influence from freemasonry. Can you comment on that?


Alan:  There was. There's no doubt it that the founders were Masons. They did come out of the Oxford movement and the Oxford movement was designed and charted, given authority by the British Crown to basically set organizations, many different kinds of organizations across the whole planet to standardize everything under the same system and even with the 12 Steps. You know it's the 12 Steps, and so you have "harmony" and you "five" the five points – five and seven, twelve. You have that involved too and plus confession basically. Confession came up through Masonry from the Knights Templars and the Rosicrucian's into modern Masonry, and every Mason must have a confidant where he gives a confession. Same with the Skull and Bones, that's part of it too.  Some people have opened themselves up to blackmail in fact through these organizations and they do hush it up. You see, there's two different ways to look upon it. It can help a person initially if they can get over their initial problem and get to know themselves better, but why stand around with a bunch of people complaining that they're alcoholics forever and ever and ever until you die.


Roger:  I didn't mean to interrupt you but I was forced to go because of one of my run-ins with the law and it wasn't even because of something I had done. It was a petty theft when I was on the streets and had some problems in the past, and because I had alcohol on my breath I was forced into this program. It just seemed like a really sick program because it was a lifetime commitment and you always had this problem that you were alcoholic for the rest of your life. If you even said that “I only drink once in a while” you were really raked over the coals; and being on probation, they had a real strong influence as to whether or not your relationship with your probation officer and getting through that probation would happen if you didn't cooperate with these people.


Alan:  Yes. It's a forced thing into again the group activity, where your business is spilled out on the floor to other people and you have no real private life of your own then. In fact, if you tried to have a private life they'd be at your door asking what was wrong with you, why don't you come back to the group and acknowledge your problems.  You see they decided long ago when they were taking down religion they had to replace it with a new religion of psychotherapy and group encounters and all this kind of thing. That's why they brought psychiatry and therapy to the front. It was to take over from religion and it pretty well has. I will be back after the following messages.

Hi. Alan Watt back with Cutting Through the Matrix. I'm going to read an excerpt from a book called "They Thought They Were Free: The Germans 1933-1945" chapter 13 which is entitled "By Then It Was Too Late." Milton Mayer was the author. You can get this book from the University of Chicago Press, printed 1955. He says here in this chapter, and relate this to the present times, that's why I'm reading this.


But Then It Was Too Late

"What no one seemed to notice," said a colleague of mine, a philologist, "was the ever widening gap, after 1933, between the government and the people. Just think how very wide this gap was to begin with, here in Germany. And it became always wider. You know, it doesn’t make people close to their government to be told that this is a people’s government, a true democracy, or to be enrolled in civilian defense, or even to vote. All this has little, really nothing, to do with knowing one is governing.

"What happened here was the gradual habituation of the people, little by little, to being governed by surprise; to receiving decisions deliberated in secret; to believing that the situation was so complicated that the government had to act on information which the people could not understand, or so dangerous that, even if the people could not understand it, it could not be released because of national security. And their sense of identification with Hitler, their trust in him, made it easier to widen this gap and reassured those who would otherwise have worried about it.

"This separation of government from people, this widening of the gap, took place so gradually and so insensibly, each step disguised (perhaps not even intentionally) as a temporary emergency measure or associated with true patriotic allegiance or with real social purposes. And all the crises and reforms (real reforms, too) so occupied the people that they did not see the slow motion underneath, of the whole process of government growing remoter and remoter.

"You will understand me when I say that my Middle High German was my life. It was all I cared about. I was a scholar, a specialist. Then, suddenly, I was plunged into all the new activity, as the university was drawn into the new situation; meetings, conferences, interviews, ceremonies, and, above all, papers to be filled out, reports, bibliographies, lists, questionnaires. And on top of that were the demands in the community, the things in which one had to, was ‘expected to’ participate…"

Alan:  In the community events he's talking about.


             "…that had not been there or had not been important before. It was all rigmarole, of course, but it consumed all one’s energies, coming on top of the work one really wanted to do. You can see how easy it was, then, not to think about fundamental things. One had no time."


             "Those," I said, "are the words of my friend the baker. ‘One had no time to think. There was so much going on.’"


"Your friend the baker was right," said my colleague. "The dictatorship, and the whole process of its coming into being, was above all diverting. It provided an excuse not to think for people who did not want to think anyway. I do not speak of your ‘little men,’ your baker and so on; I speak of my colleagues and myself, learned men, mind you. Most of us did not want to think about fundamental things and never had. There was no need to. Nazism gave us some dreadful, fundamental things to think about—we were decent people—and kept us so busy with continuous changes and ‘crises’ and so fascinated, yes, fascinated, by the machinations of the ‘national enemies,’ without and within, that we had no time to think about these dreadful things that were growing, little by little, all around us. Unconsciously, I suppose, we were grateful. Who wants to think?


"To live in this process is absolutely not to be able to notice it—please try to believe me—unless one has a much greater degree of political awareness, acuity, than most of us had ever had occasion to develop. Each step was so small, so inconsequential, so well explained or, on occasion, ‘regretted,’ that, unless one were detached from the whole process from the beginning, unless one understood what the whole thing was in principle, what all these ‘little measures’ that no ‘patriotic German’ could resent must some day lead to, one no more saw it developing from day to day than a farmer in his field sees the corn growing. One day it is over his head."


Now we've got Ron in New York. Are you there, Ron?


Ron:  Yes.  I had a question about the "2001 Space Odyssey" book, because in the book it looked to me like a crystal in the beginning, it comes out and does different things, it tests them out, I was wondering what that was basically?


Alan:  What it was in the end you're talking about, or the beginning?


Ron:  The beginning when the crystal light goes up and it tests all the apes and what was that symbolizing basically?


Alan:  It was symbolizing advanced intelligence that had sent out this Masonic obelisk basically to check out the different apes to find out which had the most intelligence and dexterity. They were also tested physically for physical stamina and strength; and supposedly it infused into this particular ape this gene or whatever that gave it the ability to be dominant and to be aggressive and even to kill. In other words, it was about an outside force coming in. However, it's also allegory of the Masonic stone, everything to do with the stone, that's what the obelisk is. It's interesting too, that obelisk they actually had in the movie, if you look at UN building, the big black building, that's what that is. It's the one. The UN is one. However, the whole story was to do with one individual overcoming the computer, and that's what all Masons are supposed to strive to, to overcome the Lord of this world by understanding the nature of things. Understanding how sciences work to be cunning et cetera and not to break the laws, but find ways to get round them and overcome the lord of the world. Once he's past that lord he becomes God in extremely high levels; and that's exactly what I was talking about with Sirius. Sirius is basically a form of Prometheus who actually goes up towards the sun. HAL, the computer in "2001," is sun, that's what it means from Old Greek, and so he overcomes the sun, the light; and who can become greater than the light? Well you become an illumined one yourself.  The same thing as I say with Sirius the Star, because in the morning it heralded the coming of the Nile with the flooding coming that gave life to the land around Egypt, Sirius could be seen in the morning climbing towards the sun. All of these are allegories of the same things of a particular individual's ability to overcome everything and become a form of God. That's the crux of all the mystery religions.


Ron:  When you said he took over the computer, you might think of them taking over everyone chipped?


Alan:  That too. In fact, that's where the chip comes from, "it's a chip off the old block," and Masons talk about "you have to go around the block a few times" as they say during their ritual when they used to pretend they were the planets going around the sun in one of their rituals. That's the block in the middle they call it, and it's a chip off the old block. The only problem is this will be silicon, which is a silly cone. See, we're all silly cones indeed if we take it.


Ron: Coneheads. If something’s going to go in the brain, it really is a conehead.


Alan:  You're right and this whole idea of chipping, it's quite amazing to realize that in ancient religions and right through all religions you have the stone; Peter himself is the rock. The rock is the stone. Peter is Petra, or Petros, and that means rock or stone. You find the same thing down through the mystery religions, including King Arthur and all the rest of it, the legends with the Sword and the Stone.  The stone also is the family jewels, that's the real ones because it's your testicles, and what you give out as a Mason as you select your wife or she is selected for you in the high degrees, then you pass on superior intellect on to the child. It's a eugenics program.


Ron:  Fits the picture.


Alan:  That's why they call it stones, folks.  Everything sort of fits in when you understand their terminology, how they hide things in plain sight.


Ron:  Terminology, I heard one of your sayings and like I never known that "fetus" was Latin for "baby."


Alan:  Yes. If you demonize or dehumanize an enemy, that's what you do in all wars, it's much easier to kill them and so you simply make them like a non-human being.  I've actually heard women say, “it's just like getting a wart removed,” so they equate a baby to a wart. That's how far it's gone; and yet that wart could have been you, I, or anyone else.


Ron:  Yes. And if they wanted to change the name, what could they even change it to, nothing?


Alan:  That's right. The same with the elderly, they call them geriatrics. You're no longer an elderly person, no, you're a geriatric, you’re put into this non-human form where it becomes easier to again use genocide. Standard techniques used down through the ages. You'll find in the ancient slavery systems of the Ancient World they gave numbers to the slaves, and if you were born on the plot of land that others worked on, that plot had a number and that was your name. You worked there until you died. You had no name except for the number. The numbering of slaves is not new. They just use the same old techniques down and down again, down through history, over and over, and the public are kept in ignorance and never twig onto it.


Ron:  If you only think in the English language – I  only think in the English language so that's pretty limiting right there.


Alan:  You'll find they've done the same in all of them. See, all the main European languages were updated at the same time and they used different heroes of religion to update them. They had Luther in one country and you had King James in another and so on, but they really updated the languages all at the same time to encode them all – all the languages of Europe.


Ron:  Do they have a commonality tonality?


Alan:  Yes. You can go from one language to the next and find the same meanings when you understand the codings.


Ron:  Okay. Thanks a lot. It was great talking to you.


Alan:  We're living in a multifaceted matrix here, where even the words you speak are basically your form of computer language. They know by giving you a particular type of logic in the language that you use, if they give you a question or they make a comment about something, you will work through to a conclusion which was preconceived. They know what you must come to, and that's how perfectly understood we are. We get downloaded from 100 different sources every day in media outlets, magazines, billboards and even the symbols and logos that we see all over the place. You're living in a high Masonic world, and if you're one of the profane, meaning those in the darkness, those who don't see, then you're being programmed without understanding what programming is, or even that it's happening, but it does affect you. It will work its way through you. It's quite amazing to see the symbols of slavery all around you, symbols that medieval peasants would have run away from because they knew what they meant; and yet in today's society they're so ignorant and dumbed-down.


Now mind you, today's society have never had so much scientific dumbing-down, including the inoculations to target their brains as soon as they're two years old and the fluoride in the water supply, which does dumb them down. It's meant to make them more placid and pliable, and the spraying from the air and even the food they eat is all modified for particular reasons. There's never been a society that's had so much conditioning and been under such massive war attack as we are ourselves, never mind the bombardment by the daily media we get everyday, the coordinated media, where you change from one station to the next. It doesn't matter what you switch to. It's the same format, same stories, same presentation and it's the same stories, one after the other, in the same formula. They're all coming from the same central capstone. That's why they're all telling the same stuff. It's quite easy to fool millions and millions of people and keep them in darkness without ever understanding. It's very true that outside of the U.S. there's far more information globally and about the U.S. than the people within the U.S. are told themselves; and that is just fact, folks.


We're heading towards a whole new brave new world. A brave new world where the gods – you know the high elite, the inbred crew at the top who've been practicing eugenics for an awful long time, have decided that they will make the future – they will remake life on the planet. Quite interesting in the Old Testament and even the parts that they took out of all the old ancient holy books, which they wrote themselves of course, talked about the Satan boasting that he would conquer and overcome God by understanding nature, meaning science, and rise higher than all the other gods and remake all that that was left imperfect. Everything on the planet is just not efficient enough and so the new gods are going to make sure that they complete the job and make it far more efficient; and under name of efficiency, they'll change everything. They're already changing human beings. They're already created Chimeras in laboratories that are part animal and human. Britain was the first country to pass a law that they can go ahead and try this; and when they pass laws and tell the public, believe you me, they've done it long ago because we are the last to know about anything that really matters.


Same with Dolly the sheep, Dolly was an old type experiment, done at the bottom of science. The higher levels of science had done that years and years beforehand and overcame all the problems that Dolly and the offspring of Dolly were experiencing. All that is really old stuff, so that's where we are today – not a nice planet, not nice things that are going on. It doesn't mean you have to be miserable. You have to have a sense of humor and still laugh at a lot of it, and my God, there's a hell of a lot to laugh about when you look at the statements we're given. It's like they're talking to children, the handouts from the media, and some of us are not children. We object strongly. I'll be back after the following messages.



"Everybody Knows" by Leonard Cohen

Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
That's how it goes
Everybody knows



Hi. Alan Watt back with Cutting Through the Matrix. In the last few minutes I'd like to mention that this show really is brought to you by you yourselves, listeners, by sponsoring or buying the few things I sell: The books, the CDs, the DVDs, and a few donations. A few donations come in once in a while, always from the same handful of people, and for those thousands out there – and there are thousands that listen to my shows, I know that for a fact – try and help out. It would certainly help if they send some “lula” my way, because unfortunately the whole world has been forced to use this “lula” and until it stops we're all into the same system and I'm no different. I have to keep going too and I'd like to have some time to get the next book out, that's going to cost money as well, and I'd appreciate you if you'd help out and pay for some of the free information I've been putting out for the last few years.


Before we close, I was going to go back to Arthur C. Clarke's "2001."  Remember, a Clarke too is a division of priests, and so old Art is well named. He put out "2001" and "2010" and "3001" as well.  You should read that book, too, because he has the future for the elite in a thousand years time and how they will live; and how the lesser types will have been eradicated from the planet; and how everyone, even amongst the elite, all have a brain chip and a little antenna circle, like a halo around their heads which acts as a sort of antenna and intensifies signals so those computers can make sure that no one has nasty thoughts and they can all sleep well at night.


"2001" had HAL as the computer in the space ship, and the whole story is nothing to do with traveling in space. It's an occultic journey. The planets are there for other reasons, for other symbols and allegories, and it's all to do with a particular person overcoming the computer or the sun. If you take HAL and take each letter that would come after the H-A-L in the alphabet, you'll happen to find IBM, which is of course the computer itself. That's how they put their little jokes in movies the people enjoy as they pop their bubble gum and pop away on their popcorn and ask what the next movie is, because they haven't even got the point of the first one as they consume movies like they consume the popcorn. That's the society we're living in.


At least some of us are awake and more are waking up, gradually, slowly and it took years to get them dumbed down this far, so don't expect miracles overnight. We should be quite happy that people are actually asking questions, and the good news is there is more and more of the young ones asking the questions and becoming involved. They have a bit more guts. The older folk have been terrified too much and too long. They're world weary. They're worn out, a lot of them, and they're after their pensions. They're scared of losing their pensions, whereas the young are going to go through the worst of the changes and we have to help make sure that we give them as much knowledge and help them as possible to come through.


For Hamish and myself up here in Canada, it's good night and may your god or your gods go with you.
