Baseball ....
The Hunt For October

Last Saturday I blogged about my grandson Dylan at the Yankee-Red Sox baseball game, when the Yankees lost. But Tuesday night, things took a turn as the Yankees clinched a playoff berth with a 6-1 victory against the Blue Jays. (Sorry John) This is the 15th time in the last 16 years that the Yankees have reach the playoffs which begin on Saturday.


A strange phenomena has happened to me, and I hope it remains. When I look at something - anything - and it doesn't belong in my life, no matter what it is, it looks dingy.
When I look at something that should remain, it has as brightness - the brighter the glow, the more important it will be. The same holds true with the text I write.

This feels straight out of a sci fi story, but none the less it is so. I wonder if this will apply to my clients when they ask me out their relationships.

This further made me realize why I wanted Crystalinks' Home Page to be in white.

Welcome to Planet Earth

  Has the U.N. appointed an ambassador to the aliens?   MSNBC - September 28, 2010

I've blogged about this on several occasions and believe these "Consciousness UFOs" are preventing disasters, not creating them. They are keeping the program in tact until it blips out of existence.

Ex-Air Force Officers: UFOs Monitored Nuke Sites   AOL - September 28, 2010

UFOs have monitored and occasionally tampered with nuclear weapons sites, both in the U.S. and abroad, for nearly 60 years.

2010 extraterrestrial disclosure wave surges around UN, nuclear shutdowns, Denver ET/UFO vote - September 28, 2010

The stories above are based on the book, "UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go On the Record" by Leslie Kean - (I met her) - as once again something opens us to the possibilities that the truth is out there and taps into a growing awareness stretching beyond the UFO community, that something is about to be revealed.

Aliens, and the fact bio-genetic experiments align with ...

The Event

Monday night on The Event we learned in 1944, near the end of World War II, an aircraft of undetermined origin crashed in the Brooks Range of northern Alaska. It carried passengers who appeared outwardly human but are not of terrestrial origin. They have some genetic differences and age much more slowly than humans. 97 of the survivors were interned by the U.S. government in a secret facility nearby run by intelligence agencies, since they have refused to disclose much about their origin, but some escaped and live among the population.

The series borrows from other TV shows and films, but seems like a fun adventure of the UFO kind. To date, none of the cast seem familiar from other sci fi series, but anything can happen. What good is a show without Joel Gretch? I'm not crazy about all the flashbacks (retroversions), but assume they will subside. I'm not going to second guess what "The Event" is, but is has to do with a new creation.

Education ... It's Everywhere

If reality is consciousness ... then education is everywhere ... replete with changes, challenges, and rewards along the way. We never stop learning, from the day we are born ... as our consciousness partially spirals into this aspect of physical reality. From that day forth, the mind will search for answers, as if a giant computer programmed to that end.

The human brain is an electrochemical machine forever viewing streaming consciousness for experience and interpretation.

The higher the education - the higher the consciousness and the greater the clarity.

Education is the greatest awakening tool we have in the quest to return to total conscious awareness.

It's September, and with that always comes a look at educational systems and how they prepare students for the future.

I've spent most of my life around education - as a student or teacher - on all levels of education. I know children - how they process and see the world. I've seen also sorts of education system come and go - some successful, others failures. I always wanted to develop curriculum, but the opportunity never presented itself in the traditional sense, so I'm doing it here within the chapters and pages of Crystalinks.

I know people who teach in public schools, charter schools, private schools, Catholic schools, Yeshivas, schools for students who are emotionally challenged or learning impaired (special education), vocational schools, schools for the gifted and talented, home schooling, to name a few. There are an endless number of school programs available to suit the needs of students, in the US and abroad ... as long as funding is available - therein lies a big problem in a recession.

Why did I leave the Board of Education? I wasn't burned out but couldn't deal with the dysfunctional system and dramas. So if I couldn't handle it, what about the children? Do you know how many teachers are burned out or feel hopeless to do their job properly? Many .... Yet we move forward and hope for the best.

I remember putting on an end-term performance with my 5th grade students in June 1984, that was like Glee, but the words were changed for educational purposes. It was an unqualified success for the students and parents, but the school Principal was a woman like Sue on Glee and told me to never do it again. Done. I quit after the school year ended and became a substitute teacher in High School and loved it.

My children went to public school, but as a stay-at-home mom - they were involved with all sorts of creativity, sports, travel, and more. They grew up in a middle class environment where everyone worked hard and went off to college - where the energy to get the most out of every day, was always there and made my daughters who they are today ... this energy now rippling down to their children.

Is there a right or a wrong way to teach children? No ... as it is all part of a process. If the student is happy and learning, then the system works, but be aware of their emotional package/baggage which constantly changes.

The key at any age is creativity - let the child create. Just as you wish to create your reality while interacting in the dysfunctional world we call our everyday lives - so too must a child learn through creation - arts, sciences, music, photography, nature, animals, etc. Technology is so important.

Each generation of students will face different sets of challenges - this we all know. Autism is on the increases, in one form or another. Today we recognize emotional problems such as ADD and learning challenges and try to help students develop to the best of their abilities. Some parents can face challenges with their children others say they will outgrow them. History has taught us that is not so.

Also of concern is the age of students. I can't tell you how many parents tell me how smart their child was in elementary school, then by middle school - and certainly by puberty, the grades started to slack off. Why? This is the age when emotional problems show themselves, especially those that are genetic. If left undiagnosed and blown off as part of puberty, the problems accelerate into high school, when parents are forced to say, "My normally bright child is failing" and look to find fault with the education system.

If there is mental illness and external factors affecting the child, they must be addressed. A teen at puberty, with a predisposition for depression, will not be able to focus and do their work - their brains simply can't function. If the family situation further hampers growth, they will fail, or go into that space where they just want to stay home and play video games, or hang out with friends, drink, smoke weed, etc.

There will always be successes and failures in all aspects of life, all we can do is try - it's what self awareness and healing is all about.

Keep it simple ... if the parents are dysfunctional, so too will be the children unless they get professional help.

If the education system is dysfunctional, so too will be its students.

If this reality is based on duality, bipolar content, so too shall be the people who learn within its parameters.

People work so hard to heal and help and make this experience better. Yet by its very nature, the fact that its created in duality to experience emotions, it is, and will remain bipolar - a learning experience based in emotions in the biggest school of all - the universe/universe - each step of the way forever challenged, until it blips out of existence taking with it all of the knowledge of our experiences. With changes in science and technologies, we will understand the truth behind the illusion ... viral feedback into the collective unconsciousness which created the education program in which we came to Earth to learn, but will soon return.


Everyone seems to want to major in film and communication ... an interesting aspect of the grids ... yet producing too many college and university students who can't find jobs. You have to prepare for the day job also.

Recently Oprah featured programs about education, saying that she always wanted to be a teacher and discussing the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls and Waiting for "Superman" a 2010 documentary that analyzes the failures of American public education by following several students through the educational system.

Monday's message from Obama is wrong - good for working moms maybe, but not great for students. School is not about tough-love, but dealing with the issues of students and whoever raises them.

Obama presses for longer school years

Barely into the new school year, President Barack Obama issued a tough-love message to students and teachers on Monday: Their year in the classroom should be longer, and poorly performing teachers should get out.

Venus' South Polar Vortex
  NASA - September 28, 2010

What's happening over the South Pole of Venus? To find out, scientists have been studying images taken by the robotic Venus Express spacecraft when it passes over the lower spin axis of Earth's overheated twin. Surprisingly, recent images from Venus Express do not confirm previous sightings of a double storm system there, but rather found a single unusual swirling cloud vortex. In the above recently released image sequence taken in infrared light and digitally compressed, darker areas correspond to higher temperatures and hence lower regions of Venus' atmosphere. Also illuminating are recently released movies, which show similarities between Venus' southern vortex and the vortex that swirls over the South Pole of Saturn. Understanding the peculiar dynamics of why, at times, two eddies appear, while at other times a single peculiar eddy appears, may give insight into how hurricanes evolve on Earth

The images above reminded me of this image of ...

Happy Birthday Google

September 27, 1998

Google Inc.

Google Inc. is a multinational public cloud computing,

Internet search, and advertising technologies corporation.

Happy 12th Birthday, Google   Yahoo - September 27, 2010

It's Google's 12th birthday today, and Google's regular logo is replaced by

an image of a cake, created by the American painter Wayne Thiebaud.

After Crystalinks debuted on August 25, 1995, it slowly grew in the number of unique visitors who would stop by each day. In 1997, Crystalinks became an LLC, and a brand named The follow year something miraculous happened ... Google found me. It was love at first sight. From that day forth we would grow and continue together as 'works in progress' (a metaphor for how all good relationships should develop). Google has brought Crystalinks into the world, creating amazing contacts, bringing revenue, and much more. So today I say ... "Happy birthday Google. The best is yet to come."


Since the recession began, I have read people whose careers revolve around branding the identity of a specific product, service, or business. Many work as consultants creating brands for companies and using SEO to help those businesses grow. I guess this falls under the heading of marketing, advertising and sales, but it seems to work well when done professionally and allows one to be creative. (The shift in the grid is towards creative jobs).

A brand can take many forms, including a name, sign, symbol, color combination or slogan. A legally protected brand name is called a trademark. The word brand has continued to evolve to encompass identity - it affects the personality of a product, company or service. It's not about the hard sell, but about credibility and getting yourself out as an expert in an industry. Crystalinks brand changed this month to make it faster and more efficient.

Autumn Quotes

September 23, 2010

Full Moon 00ยบ Aries

The Full Corn Moon occurs closest to the Autumn Equinox. In two years out of three, the Harvest Moon comes in September, but in some years it occurs in October. At the peak of harvest, farmers can work late into the night by the light of this Moon. Usually the full Moon rises an average of 50 minutes later each night, but for the few nights around the Harvest Moon, the Moon seems to rise at nearly the same time each night: just 25 to 30 minutes later across the U.S., and only 10 to 20 minutes later for much of Canada and Europe. Corn, pumpkins, squash, beans, and wild rice the chief Indian staples are now ready for gathering. The Harvest Moon Festival is another name for the Mid-Autumn Festival.

Awakening Moments

Everyday events are going to happen in your life that might normally mean "whatever" ... Now they are going to come as signposts to the closure of the program ... the "Ah ha" moments.

Further ... let's say you purchase a car. The thought might come to you ... "this is the last car I will ever need." Anything in your life that triggers a feeling of ... "this is the last" ... is another trigger that your soul is awakening. Don't process when doing this. Let it come naturally, knowing it is happening on all levels of your experience.

Things they are accelerating .... For example, if you were expecting something to happen in one year, it will take 6 months or less !!! Look for examples in your own life that this might have recently happened. It could have been in your work place, or in your relationships - something that is personal to you.

Email from Robin:

    Dear Ellie,

    I read your "Ah ha" article today. My friend Bobby and I were driving by his friend's shop earlier and came across "The Ship"! He happened to have his digital cam with him, so took some pictures. Talk about pulling "The Cosmic Trigger" (my initials are RAW, same as Robert Anton Wilson's). Needless to say, we had our "Ah ha" and "This is our last" moment of the day! I was reminded of the song Closing Time by Semisonic...lyrics..."Closing time-every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end" and "I know who I want to take me home".

    So, take us on out Ellie!!! It's closing (close-sing) time!

    I also enjoyed Dee's email. My daughter's B-day is 9-22 - she will be 10. Love those numbers ;-) I can't wait to feel the energies from the ceremony in the pyramid. Well, over and out Ellie!

Email From Dee in Egypt

Dearest Ellie,

You've been on my mind soooo much! Many times daily in fact since I arrived in Cairo on Sept 10th. The excitement in Cairo was simply unbelievable with the whole country celebrating the last day of Ramadan. The excitement lasted all weekend and what an energy to begin my tour with! Sept 11th was then the Egyptian New Year on the old calendar, ringing in year 6252 ... also the New Moon phase last week brought its unique vibration. Our tour has just gone simply amazing. I have lots of fantastic pictures and incredible stories to share with you.

If you would like to let your readers know that at 10am Egypt time (7 hours ahead of NYC) on Equinox, Sept 22nd, we will be inside the Kings Chamber and welcome all to tune into the frequencies of Egypt and Mabon. The ceremony that we do inside the pyramid is an opening of the crown chakra to allow information to flow clearly, downloads to integrate, connecting to our ancestors and the beings of Light from all dimensions. strengthening our energy bodies by drawing this light down through our crowns and out of the root chakra, down into the center of the earth through the pyramid at Zero Point.... the strongest vortex on the Earth. Thoth is the guide that we connect with to help guide this process and protect us. Hope many of your readers can join in with us!

With love and blessings,


I hope all is great and can't wait to catch up!

I feel you are here in spirit on this trip with us so much this time!

Love and blessings from Egypt...


I guess this is why I dreamed about the Great Pyramid Sunday morning ... see below.


And Conscious Awakenings

Speaking of being on the outside looking in ...

In Sunday's dream I was in school ... but where was school?

I clearly saw this image of the King's Chamber of the Great Pyramid.

Some believe this is linked to the missing capstone (consciousness metaphor).

The Mannings

In my book 2012 Sarah and Alexander, Sarah's last name is Manning - the Mannings being her family with an intertwined bloodline dating back to the beginning of time and a destiny that only our hero, Sarah, can handle. Sarah is the middle of three sisters. The book went through many revisions. In an earlier version, there was a chapter called "The Mannings of Manhattan."

It's now 2010 and we come to another set of Manning siblings - Peyton and Eli both famous football quarterbacks. So why are they in the news? Sunday night I watched as the NY Giants (Eli) were defeated by the Indianapolis Colts (Peyton) in what some labeled the "Manning Bowl".

TV - TIVO - DVR Alert

Here comes the new season of TV shows depending on what you like. Fringe returns on Thursday, but the start of Season 3 doesn't look that great - I've been reading the spoilers. The coolest one I read ... STOP HERE if you don't like spoilers ... in an interview with Blair Brown she said Walter is going to inherit Massive Dynamics in episode #2. Now that offers endless story lines linked not only to the main arc, but things dealing with physics that we can only dream about. I hope they don't run the X-Files themes again ... been there .. did that with Mulder and Scully. As for Olivia's back story - could deal with one or two episodes, but that's it. Peter and Olivia ... bring on the sex with the real Olivia. The two unexplained tornadoes and marcoburst that happened here last week could definitely be part of Fringe science. Fringe Episodes Season 3 Wikipedia

Also returning -- Bones, Castle, other cool Syfy stuff ...

New shows -- The Event, Chase, Undercovers, more ..

Stayed tuned ...

What is a ...

Tipler Cylinder

This blog is only for those who remember.

Sunday, Anna and I went out to dinner for her birthday. Along the way we talked about the 1930's time travel experiments and how we know we are going back to the 'lab' soon. When Trae was here two weeks ago, we also discussed the labs and knowing the time is coming to close the program. Trae and I saw ... a wormhole that opened ... we went through instantly ... met others who were all familiar and were happy we made it back in time as it was 11:58 .. 11:59 .. 12:00 ... a light opened above us ... looked like the Tipler Cylinder. It was conical (funnel shaped) ... up we went and it was done end program. Whew ... did it right this time. Last week we had 3 funnel shaped storms in Brooklyn after that Sumerian god came by with his fleet of UFO's once buried for all time and now free. Got it.

Anna mentioned the 1939 lab where the time travel experiments got screwed up ... we got caught in time loop ... after loop ... after loop. Oy vey! The pieces of the puzzle have been rapidly falling into place for Anna especially as she spent the Jewish holidays with thousands of people in D.C. (Rosh Hashanah) and at the Kabbalah Center in Manhattan. (Yom Kippur). Others have reported powerful energies since then that linger.

Anna has linked time travel with the Tipler Cylinder. I remember a canister ... from the old days ... but canister and cylinder are similar and link with Sumerian cylinder seals and cuneiform tablets. The canister holds what one might call moving Golden Keys of Light that get us out. The canister is buried beside the tree by the stream and will be removed at the end of the story.

Spirals of light take us to Sacred Geometry ... Fibonacci Sequence .... and you know the rest ...

    A Tipler cylinder, also called a Tipler time machine, is a hypothetical object theorized to be a potential mode of time travel‹an approach that is conceivably functional within humanity's current understanding of physics, specifically the theory of general relativity, although later results have shown that a Tipler cylinder could only allow time travel if its length were infinite (see the discussion of Hawking's proof below).

    The Tipler cylinder was discovered as a solution to the equations of general relativity by Willem Jacob van Stockum in 1936 and Kornel Lanczos in 1924, but not recognized as allowing closed timelike curves until an analysis by Frank Tipler in 1974. Tipler showed in his 1974 paper, "Rotating Cylinders and the Possibility of Global Causality Violation" that in a spacetime containing a massive, infinitely long cylinder which was spinning along its longitudinal axis, the cylinder should create a frame-dragging effect. This frame-dragging effect warps spacetime in such a way that the light cones of objects in the cylinder's proximity become tilted, so that part of the light cone then points backwards along the time axis on a space time diagram. Therefore a spacecraft accelerating sufficiently in the appropriate direction can travel backwards through time along a closed time-like curve or CTC.

    CTC's are associated, in Lorentzian manifolds which are interpreted physically as space-times, with the possibility of causal anomalies such as going back in time and potentially shooting your own grandfather, although paradoxes might be avoided using some constraint such as the Novikov self-consistency principle. They have an unnerving habit of appearing in some of the most important exact solutions in general relativity, including the Kerr vacuum (which models a rotating black hole) and the van Stockum dust (which models a cylindrically symmetrical configuration of rotating pressureless fluid or dust).

    An objection to the practicality of building a Tipler cylinder was discovered by Stephen Hawking, who posited a conjecture showing that according to general relativity it is impossible to build a time machine in any finite region that satisfies the weak energy condition, meaning that the region contains no exotic matter with negative energy. The Tipler cylinder, on the other hand, does not involve any negative energy. Tipler's original solution involved a cylinder of infinite length, which is easier to analyze mathematically, and although Tipler suggested that a finite cylinder might produce closed time-like curves if the rotation rate were fast enough, he did not prove this.

    But Hawking argues that because of his conjecture, "it can't be done with positive energy density everywhere! I can prove that to build a finite time machine, you need negative energy." Hawking's proof appears in his 1992 paper on the chronology protection conjecture, where he examines "the case that the causality violations appear in a finite region of spacetime without curvature singularities" and proves that "[t]here will be a Cauchy horizon that is compactly generated and that in general contains one or more closed null geodesics which will be incomplete. One can define geometrical quantities that measure the Lorentz boost and area increase on going round these closed null geodesics. If the causality violation developed from a noncompact initial surface, the averaged weak energy condition must be violated on the Cauchy horizon."

Found this interesting article ... that goes to 2012 ... 12 around 1 ... Zecharia Sitchin ... and other myths and prophecies. This all goes to pseudohistory and pseudoscience.

    Where did the Sumerian Doomsday prophecy come from?

    In 1851 in Iraq archaeologists discovered a library with 22,000 scrolls - which is the earliest writing on Earth, dating back to over 6,000 years ago when the region was known as Mesopotamia, Sumer, and Babylon. Amongst them is a story which mirrors the book of Genesis in the Bible. It tells a story of a great flood which reshaped the face of the planet Earth and killed all of the inhabitants.

    But even more important to us today, living as we are under the shadow of a coming 2012 Doomsday they also unearthed a star map on a pottery cylinder seal. It shows a solar system with twelve elements in it, not just the nine we know today! (This incredible, priceless Sumerian cylinder seal is now stored a Berlin museum.) The seal depicts our solar system with a sun at the center and the planets arrayed around it - facts not fully accepted by European science until around 400 years ago. And amazingly there's another planet, which the Sumerians called Nibiru. They believed that it was where the Annunaki, or the Celestial Giants, came from. They were the first people on earth - and our ancestors.

    We can't see Niburu at the moment because it is hidden behind the sun as it returns from its massive orbit beyond the furthest reaches of the solar system - but 6000 years ago the Sumerians could see it plainly in the night sky, maybe even in the daytime. Imagine what a sight that must have been! The name Nibiru itself gives us a very chilling clue about what could happen in 2012 - Niburu translates as 'planet of the crossing'. That means Nibiru will appear again in 2012 as it crosses through our part of the solar system - possibly on a direct intersection course with Earth. This is what the Sumerian 2012 Doomsday Prophecy is all about. Very few people on Earth would survive an impact from Nibiru. The devastation would be truly cataclysmic. The dinosaurs didn't survive the last massive impact from space, but with the right know-how and good planning now - your family can.

Astral Projection

   I'm on the outside looking in ... (sing-along from my generation ..)

Last week I blogged about splitting the consciousness to experience more than one reality at a time, sometimes known as OBEs or Out of Body Experiences. There are several ways this can be accomplished, as many of you know. One of the most popular, yet scary ways of doing this for some people, is astral projection.

Astral projection is a funny thing ... some people do it spontaneously, others never master the skill. I believe you should relax and do what feels right based on your soul's need to experience while it's here.

There's a new advertiser on the astral projection page named Steve Jones, who hopes to help you overcome your fear of astral projection, then take you on a metaphysical adventure through the astral planes. In some odd way, OBEs might be a tool to help you overcome other fears ... whatever it takes to get you beyond the limitations of physical reality and into understanding about the next step of our soul's journey.

Removing your consciousness from your physical body is very natural for your soul ... it's something you do all the time without knowing it, as in dreams. In times of danger, fear, panic, or shock, your soul quickly prepares to leave the physical to observe from above ... no biggie to a soul that is using a physical vehicle to experience.

Have you ever walked down the street and suddenly experienced deja vu, a temporal distortion, or a sensation of lifting out of your body and going elsewhere, while you are not on medication or under the influence of drugs of alcohol? These are spontaneous out of body experiences that are becoming more frequent as time and frequency accelerate and you prepare for the journey home on a soul level - physical ego or ID - and all the baggage that goes with it, left behind as a fleeting memory.
