New Moon 9° Virgo Solar Eclipse

Annular Solar Eclipse over New Mexico   APOD - August 31, 2016

Explaining the image above ... In 2012 an annular eclipse of the Sun was visible over a narrow path that crossed the northern Pacific Ocean and several western US states. In an annular solar eclipse, the Moon is too far from the Earth to block out the entire Sun, leaving the Sun peeking out over the Moon's disk in a ring of fire. To capture this unusual solar event, an industrious photographer drove from Arizona to New Mexico to find just the right vista. After setting up and just as the eclipsed Sun was setting over a ridge about 2.5 kilometers away, a person unknowingly walked right into the shot. Although grateful for the unexpected human element, the photographer never learned the identity of the silhouetted interloper. It appears likely, though, that the person is holding a circular device that would enable them to get their own view of the eclipse. The shot was taken at sunset on 2012 May 20 at 7:36 pm local time from a park near Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. Thursday another annular solar eclipse becomes visible, this time along a path crossing Africa and Madagascar.

Tuesday Themes

Today, the world mourns the loss of Gene Wilder - a man who loved to make people laugh and was extremely talented.

Also making us giggle - though not actually funny - is a third sexting scandal (digital cheating) by Anthony Weiner as his wife Huma Abedin left him at a critical time in the Clinton campaign. At the time of the first scandal I knew he would never change and it was time for her to move on though she was pregnant and probably hoping things could work out. Politics is forever laced with scandals and conspiracies.

The end of summer brings huge change ... this year focusing on relationships. It's not easy to end a relationship no matter what the circumstances. It's particularly more difficult for the person who wants to stay, while the other person either seeks freedom or is already involved with somebody else. Leaving a relationship brings up issues from failed prior relationships. One may think they've healed, but have they? This time of the year also reunites couples who have not been together for decades but found each other again through social media or another way. This may have to do with bringing closure, or for some couples, creating something new. The New Moon 9° Virgo Solar Eclipse and Mercury Retrograde stir things up for resolution.

This is the last official week of the summer of 2016 in the United States. Thousands of people are away on vacations returning this weekend. Not guided to go anywhere special this year I will finally head out to Connecticut for my grandson Matthew's bar mitzvah - gone for four days with all my children. The weather in the Northeast looks good but elsewhere things are not quite as positive with two hurricanes on the move ...

Political Statements From
Generation Z

My grandson Giovanni, a High School Junior in Gilbert, AZ., turned 16 on Saturday. As with the rest of the world, political themes and the future of the nation are often discussed/debated in and out of school. Vanni is part of Generation Z - (starting birth years ranging from the mid-1990s to mid-2000s and ending birth years ranging from the late 2000s to mid-2020s).

Vanni seems to have his mother's flair for art, as he drew the pictures below. Though he fears what Hillary will do to the country - he feels the same about Trump. Imagine being 16 - watching the world around you change as fast at the tech (his field of study) - and wondering what life will be like when he becomes a man. Is Generation Z programmed to tolerate and accept the old ways or to fight for change as have generation before to no avail? History repeats itself to perpetuate its design.

An MTV Video Music Award (commonly abbreviated as a VMA) is an award presented by the cable channel MTV to honor the best in the music video medium. Originally conceived as an alternative to the Grammy Awards (in the video category), the annual MTV Video Music Awards ceremony has often been called the "Super Bowl for youth", an acknowledgment of the VMA ceremony's ability to draw millions of youth from teens to 20-somethings each year. This year the show takes place in Madison Square Garden.

Last night on Ancient Aliens, the episode was called "The Returned" having to do with people who have been taken by aliens, then return to Earth with a mission for humanity. The abduction experience generally denotes negative emotions and experiences but that is not always the case, as the episode discussed.

Of course, things in the historic past are myths and legends, with markers to help us believe they are true ... maybe ... as nothing really exists but consciousness. Interesting that abduction experiences continue as a means of upgrading human programming.

I was taken, unharmed and unafraid, at age 11 in the Nevada desert - programmed or reprogrammed and returned. Everything that was told to me during that experience has unfolded with a few exceptions - making my life both unique and protected - until everything Fades to Black. My mission, as I see it, is to bring knowledge about reality being an illusion - a hologram - that is about to evolve out of existence.

Am I waiting for aliens to return for me? No one returns, but it might be comforting for some to see the projected illusion of what or who they believe the creator/savior is when the simulation ends.

Facebook Friends
and Adventures

Thursday, on Crystalinks' 21st anniversary, I reunited via Facebook with long lost friend Rene. Rene is from the Netherlands, lived here for many years, then went to Africa and other exotic places while researching and completing his doctorate, going on to become an assistant professor in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Rene and I had many metaphysical adventures at the time Crystalinks was created - some through remote viewing and others in person. Here, we are in Pine Bush, NY - home to aliens and alien researchers mentioned in Ellen Crystall's book "Silent Invasion".

Anyone up for a trip to Alaska this weekend? HAARP was one of Crystalinks early files along with Area 51, aliens, and other conspiracy agendas.

  'Mind Control' Facility Holds Open House   Discovery - August 25, 2016
For the discerning conspiracy theorist, the High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program facility -- or HAARP -- is ground zero for massive and sinister government secrets. The confusing news? It's holding an open house this weekend. Ostensibly, HAARP is a federal atmospheric research project based out of an Air Force facility near Gakona, Alaska. But dark rumors have swirled around the project since it opened in the 1990s. Specifically, HAARP -- funded in part by Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) -- has been suspected of housing a top-secret weather control weapon.

Crystalinks turns 21

On this date, 21 years ago, Crystalinks went online for the first time as a digital website in a digital age - no matter how we got here. It would change my life, and that of my readers, forever. Focus this year has been the 2016 US presidential election - to destroy that which keeps us trapped in this reality. We await a defining movement when illusion becomes truth and we evolve. I want to thank those who have come along for the ride, either on a daily basis or coming and going through the decades. I also want to thank people for their good wishes on this day - from far off places to local readers. What was your life like 21 year ago as the Internet was in its start-up stages? Initially, I thought the origin version would remain the same, but was I ever wrong as the files number into the thousands and growing. Crystalinks, like your experiences here, remain a work in progress.

Sun in Virgo

Happy Birthday to the Crystalinks readers born in Virgo.

Virgo is a mutable Earth sign ruled by Mercury.

Let's see what this year's Virgo Transition brings to
your life and the world. Decision making and changes ahead.


With less than two weeks until Labor Day in the US many people are on vacation/holiday at this time. People like me are glad to see the heat of summer leave while others tell me they actually enjoy heat and humidity.

The last two weeks of August ... Mainstream media is reporting stories that are repeated topics from recent broadcasts so much so that last night when I watch Lester Holt on NBC Nightly News I thought it was a rebroadcast. Actually some of the video was from last week. We know about the unfortunate natural disasters from flooding to wildfires - very tragic - not finished in some states and probably never will be. It certainly would be interesting to see what the presidential candidates will do to help people - besides the video of Donald Trump handing out food and water to survivors of the Louisiana flood in Baton Rouge. That was an obvious staged PR event where he really would have liked his staff/servants do those menial tasks. He did not look particularly happy but it's his only road to recovery in what was looking like a lost candidacy. If Trump loses he will return to building his empire with his children. If Hillary loses she will be devastated for the rest of her life. If she wants to disprove rumors of health issues, she needs a more updated medical report, not one from 2015. Both will are memorable characters in history.

On this day in 1899, what is widely believed to be the first ship-to-shore wireless message in American history was sent: the words "Sherman is sighted," transmitted from Coast Guard Lightship No. 70 to a receiving station at the Cliff House restaurant in San Francisco. It announced the arrival of the Sherman, a troopship carrying a regiment returning from the Spanish-American War. "Frisco and Oakland has been roaring since last evening, when the Sherman was sighted," Jack London later wrote to his friend Cloudesley Johns. Across miles of choppy, fog-choked seas, the boat's message was relayed through wireless telegraphy. Today, we call that radio. It was a watershed technological moment for the military, and also for industries like journalism. Today, our messages are as succinct as that three-word phrase sent in 1899 - even shorter, since we now have emojis.

The Olympics have ended with a Carnivalesque closing ceremony and both major success and shame for the US. More than 10,000 athletes, representing 207 nations, competed in 31 sports, with 306 sets of medals awarded over the course of the Games. Records were broken, history was made, legends confirmed and superstars born.

The New Moon brought an overhaul to Trump's campaign last week, but it's doubtful he has changed - just "beginning" to understand how to be politically correct without become the head to a corrupt political party and doing their bidding. Do you get the feeling he's also battling with the powers-that-be? Soon it will be over.

Is Obamacare collapsing?

As Sal, the super in my building, and his wife prepare to head home for their annual vacation with family in Turkey ... The horrors of Syria's civil war crossed into Turkey again as more than 50 people at a Kurdish wedding were killed by a suicide bomber. Turkey blamed the Islamic State for the attack, and said the assailant was no older than 14. Each year Sal and his wife become more and more disenchanted about moving home as his retirement approaches. They used to spend 4 weeks there, now they travel to other countries first then to Turkey.

Many students and teachers are starting fall semester this week. I spent Sunday with my family in NJ as grandson Michael leaves for Boston College tomorrow. So much packing ... Do you remember your freshman year?

Virgo Transition

Saturday, August 20, 2016


When you meet someone, how do you greet them? hello? hi? Hello, how are you? How ya' doing? I tend to just smile and say Hi. One day I noticed that most people say, "Hello, how are you?" be they interested or not. This is also true with email. I thought about this and realized that I don't ask how people are because ... I can see/sense if there is problem ... I read people for a living and really don't want to hear about other's issues and dramas unless I am going through something with them ... which I also tend to avoid. I continue on my merry way with a smile and if you see expect a friendly smile and "Hi". That feels right or maybe it's a New York Thing.

Ah...a greeting from tmy neighborhood or another galaxy/insert.

Response to this is, "What's happening?"

Here's what's happening ... Friday night "Ancient Alien" presented an episode with a familiar ring Beyond Roswell covering - Roswell, other global UFO crashes, resulting coverups, and reverse engineering that lead to current technologies to advance humans in their evolution - patterns within patterns to reach a final destination/ designation.

Why do I always go back to the 1940's, mirroring many of the current-day UFO scenarios? It's the timeline that set everything in motion for this experiment- one of many junctures. It's about temporal distortions - easily recognized by some today but not by most. This was one of endless scenarios instantly orchestrated by the hologram on multiple levels in which we partake ... about to end. Why am I always so sure? Because I was there in one form or another.

It was 6:30 AM as I lay in bed watching the episode. A bit bored I closed my eyes though not sleepy after nine hours of rest. Suddenly the voices on my TV faded replaced by images and tones ... some relatable some not as I realized I was watching a time-stream ... back to the beginning ... we are on track ... a message set and received.

It was time to start the day as a painter was coming early to work in my apartment. My thoughts were more about the convoluted experiences in the hologram and how easily human attention is diverted from real fact to busy work. Human design, with all those flaws, is indeed interesting, complicated, and in many ways a magnificent thought project. It was not a mistake.

  Trump regrets saying 'the wrong thing'   CNN - August 18, 2016
Donald Trump on Thursday shelved his guiding mantra -- never back down, never apologize -- and did what he has refused to do in public in more than a year of campaigning. He expressed regret. Trump, reading from prepared remarks Thursday night, acknowledged that he sometimes says "the wrong thing" in an astonishing act of contrition that signaled Trump's willingness to break from his characteristic brashness and bare-knuckles style that carried him to victory in the Republican primaries, but risks dooming him in the general election.

Truth is ... if Trump is programmed to win, he will. Further, we know there are greater "powers" that influence everything including politics, wars, economics, and more - the real Deal Makers and Breakers. It makes you wonder who they answer to. The president does not call the shots ... but as we experience in a simulation .... everything is predetermined to a final outcome.

Thomas W. Campbell

Thomas Warren Campbell (December 9, 1944) is a physicist, lecturer, and author of the My Big T.O.E. (Theory of Everything) trilogy, a work that claims to unify general relativity, quantum mechanics, and metaphysics along with the origins of consciousness. The work is based on the simulation argument, which posits that reality is both virtual and subjective. Campbell agrees with other notable philosophers and scientists including Hans Moravec, Nick Bostrom, Brian Whitworth, Marcus Arvan and others who hypothesize that reality is a simulation generated by a computer (or peer-to-peer network according to Aravan), while Campbell contends reality evolved from a "digital big bang". These ideas are heavily influenced by the concepts of digital physics. YouTube.

Mysterianism is a philosophical position proposing that the hard problem of consciousness cannot be resolved by humans. The unresolvable problem is how to explain the existence of qualia (individual instances of subjective, conscious experience). In terms of the various schools of philosophy of mind, mysterianism is a form of nonreductive physicalism. Some "mysterians" state their case uncompromisingly. Colin McGinn has said that consciousness is a mystery that human intelligence will never unravel. Others believe that consciousness is not within the grasp of present human understanding, but may be comprehensible to future advances of science and technology. Read more

World's Smartest Physicist Thinks Science Can't Crack Consciousness   Scientific American - August 18, 2016

String theorist Edward Witten says consciousness will remain a mystery. Some mind-ponderers, notably philosopher Colin McGinn, argue that consciousness is unsolvable. Philosopher Owen Flanagan calls these pessimists mysterians, after the 60Õs-era rock group Question Mark and the Mysterians. Recently, physicist Edward Witten came out as a mysterian. Witten is regarded with awe by his fellow physicists, some of whom have compared him to Einstein and Newton. He is largely responsible for the popularity of string theory over the past several decades. String theory holds that all of nature's forces stem from infinitesimal particles wriggling in a hyperspace consisting of many extra dimensions.

Lunar energies affect each of us differently at different times. It depends on one's astrological chart among other factors. A full moon is also said to bring things full circle ... an eclipse enhancing the energies.

One has to wonder how this will affect the ongoing US presidential election. We see the decisions Trump makes as he continues to sabotage. Does he want to be president? Does Hillary, with her health issues, want to take office in the year she turns 70? Neither candidate is qualified to run the country in a manner that will benefit the people.

Further, we know there are greater "powers" that influence everything including politics, wars, economics, and more - the real Deal Makers and Breakers. It makes you wonder who they answer to. The president does not call the shots ... but as we experience in a simulation .... everything is predetermined to a final outcome.

Williams will anchor a special 11 p.m. program summing up the day's campaign news. CNNMoney first reported on the plan for the program on Monday night. It had been under consideration for weeks inside MSNBC. Williams won't quite be in "late night" -- competing directly with the likes of Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert, who come on at 11:35 p.m. -- but he will wrap up the day for MSNBC.

It's Complicated ...

The expression "It's complicated" can refer to relationships and other things in which people interact and try to maintain balance. When you think about it, aren't most things in our lives complicated and getting more so as the hologram follows the same patterns to closure?

You've all heard, and perhaps used that expression in the past when things in your life get messy or unexplainable. As we live in a network of grids - our lives often get entangled and complicated - without resolution.

Tangled networks ... people sometimes say that life was easier when they were younger. That may be true for some but today technology makes our lives so much easier ... when it works. In duality - even those things that help us evolve - from the esoteric to the physical - have positives and negatives which while helping can complicate a situation. Look at all the trouble people on social media get themselves into.

No one lives in an uncomplicated world anymore. If the climate and natural disasters don't get you, something else will.

When one is programmed for analytical and critical thinking - things get complicated especially as fractured souls attach their grids to people with "like experiences". It's not opposites that attract, but people of like mind programmed for the same experiences.

Don't overthink. Don't meditate. Don't dream on it. Don't use an oracle of divination. We are beyond that for decision making. Complications will end as is programmed - (above consciousness) and below (your physical experiences).

If you can't make a decision about something, don't make it complicated, just move on to avoid stress which -> illness on all levels. The more intuitive you are, the less likely to attract complicated situations with detrimental outcomes. It's common sense. The more complicated your brain chemistry - the more complicated your experiences. Psychology (now Metaphysics) 101 (binary code) ... If you are programmed for complicated patterns, you will never be happy without them. Understand yourself (programming).

People find fault in everything adding to the complication factor. Social media venting and bullying is an unfortunate part of that. No one knows the facts of someone's experiences and relationships except for the people experiencing them up and make things more complicated than they are based on their emotional programming. It's the stuff that people go to shrinks for and even an visit to psychics to bring clarity to confusion.

The more unstable people in your life the more likely it is to be complicated. Even the journey into metaphysics as it's complicated issues depending on the person's objectivity and what they seek. A balanced mind will create few complicated situations whereas the unstable people can't live without them.

Looking at your life today. What's complicated? For me ... Nothing. I don't need to figure out the complications of the world or other's lives. That's their programmed realities and nothing that I can do will change anything. As a psychic I can help people understand the complications in their lives, how they came to be, and the positive or negative way they will do, but only their programming can take away the complications. Understanding the human dynamic is an age old process and it's complicated.

Never forget, reality is an algorithm that creates complications for experience...

The Microbiome

Human as Spaceship   APOD - August 15, 2016

Explanation: You are a spaceship soaring through the universe. So is your dog. We all carry with us trillions of microorganisms as we go through life. These multitudes of bacteria, fungi, and archaea have different DNA than you. Collectively called your microbiome, your shipmates outnumber your own cells. Your crew members form communities, help digest food, engage in battles against intruders, and sometimes commute on a liquid superhighway from one end of your body to the other. Much of what your microbiome does, however, remains unknown. You are the captain, but being nice to your crew may allow you to explore more of your local cosmos.

Mysterious 'Wow!' Signal From Space Deciphered, Says Astronomer   Epoch Times - January 14, 2016
For almost 40 years, astronomers have wondered whether an anomalous 72-second radio signal from space may have been an attempt by extraterrestrials to contact us. Was the sound from comet? In 2017 and 2018 when the same comets again enter the same region of space, an analysis of their hydrogen signals could confirm a new theory.

"Wow Signal" was a strong, narrowband radio signal detected by Dr. Jerry R. Ehman on August 15, 1977 while working on a SETI project at the Big Ear radio telescope of the Ohio State University. The signal bore expected hallmarks of potential non-terrestrial and non-solar system origin. It lasted for 72 seconds, the full duration Big Ear observed it, and has not been detected again, or not reported to the public. It has been the focus of attention in the mainstream media when talking about SETI results. Amazed at how closely the signal matched the expected signature of an interstellar signal in the antenna used, Ehman circled the signal on the computer printout and wrote the comment "Wow!" on its side. This comment became the name of the signal. On the 35th anniversary of the Wow! signal, Arecibo Observatory beamed a response from humanity, containing 10,000 Twitter messages, in the direction from which the signal originated.

Was the Wow Signal our first detection of extraterrestrials? It might have been, but no scientist would make such a claim. Scientific experiment is inherently skeptical. This isn't just a sour attitude; it's the only way to avoid routinely fooling yourself. Until and unless the cosmic beep measured in Ohio is found, the Wow Signal will remain a What Signal.

Flooding of the Nile

The annual flooding cycle of the Nile goes back to ancient times. It is celebrated by Egyptians beginning August 15 lasting two weeks, known as Wafaa El-Nil. Were it not for the Nile River, Egyptian civilization could not have developed, as it is the only significant source of water in this desert region. Ancient Egyptians believed that the Nile flooded every year because of Isis's tears of sorrow for her dead husband, Osiris. The Nile flows from south to north, to its delta on the Mediterranean Sea. The ancient Egyptians did not realize that the flood was due to rains on the mountains to the south. It was seen as the annual coming of the god Hapi. The rains would swell the different tributaries and other rivers that joined to become the Nile River, generally regarded as the longest river in the world.

Woodstock Music & Art Fair (informally, Woodstock) was a music festival, billed as "An Aquarian Exposition", held at Max Yasgur's 600 acre dairy farm in the rural town of Bethel, New York. Thirty-two of the best-known musicians of the day appeared during the sometimes rainy weekend in front of nearly half a million concertgoers. It is widely regarded as one of the greatest moments in popular music history and was listed on Rolling Stone's 50 Moments That Changed the History of Rock and Roll.
