Harvey Aftermath

Thursday - The Arkema chemical plant I mentioned in the blog above has exploded. This is never good as toxins get released into the atmosphere and coverups begin.

Deputy in Texas hospitalized after inhaling fumes from peroxide plant that closed after storm. The explosions were reported around 2 a.m. (local time). The facility, which is between Houston and Beaumont, had been closely monitored after plant officials said they expected a chemical reaction that will likely cause a fire that will "resemble a large gasoline fire." The thick black smoke from the explosions "might be irritating to the eyes, skin and lungs," Arkema officials said in a statement.

Black Stone of Mecca: Hajj

Hajj is an annual Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca, the most holy city for Muslims, and a mandatory religious duty for Muslims that must be carried out at least once in their lifetime by all adult Muslims who are physically and financially capable of undertaking the journey, and can support their family during their absence. The Hajj is the largest annual gathering of people in the world. Read more ...

Tuesday, August 29, 2017


Many people are away on vacation - most extended through Labor Day weekend - highlighted with the annual Burning Man Festival(see below). Great weather continues in the city, with a little rain today.

Rain, rain, go away .... Focus is on flooding in Texas with stories of heroism and compassion touching the hearts of people around the world who watch as the homeless make their way to safety. The flood stories in Houston are in biblical proportions - perhaps therein lies a metaphoric truth. About the hurricane ... I'm receiving all sorts of conspiracy theories about the nature of the storm but ignoring them.

Speaking of conspiracies ... the plot thickens in the Trump-Russia collusion investigation. Every day new evidence is revealed confirming conclusions about Trump and Putin's joint financial ventures, and how these two men think they can fool the world and get away with it. Tick tock ... Rachel Maddow is a great reference for putting the pieces of the puzzle together.

South Korea ... whether you focus on their accelerating agenda or not ... they are a major component in end time events.

If you were seeing the events in the world as pieces of the puzzle coming together to a greater climax, you are on the right track.

Dreamscapes of Reality

Whenever I see natural disasters sweeping across the country, forever changing the lives of those in its wake, it reminds me of the millions of refugees coming out of countries in the Middle East, Africa, and other areas hard hit by one disaster or another, events most of us never imagine would leave us homeless here ... until they do. I most likely explore the grids for these disastrous events in my sleep, because I wake up with visions of the devastation as if an observer. Natural disasters, or human disasters, can strike at any time. I am forever grateful to be in my little part of this reality and for the moment feel safe. "Safety" with everything going on in the world today is not an easy component of the human equation, but we are programmed to move forward one day at a time. Here in the northeast we've had an amazing stretch of beautiful weather, which we cherish, spending time outdoors as the journey continues. One way or another, we are all on borrowed time in the dreamscapes of reality.

Flood Disaster in Texas - Houston Under Water

Hurricane Harvey

From NBC: The National Hurricane Center said the storm was causing "unprecedented flooding" in southeastern Texas and warned the nation's fourth-largest city could see a total of 50 inches of rain. With more than 1,000 rescues over the weekend from rooftops to the tops of cars, Gov. Greg Abbott said 3,000 members of the National Guard had been activated to help.

Sunday - The Week in Review

Last week was another whirlwind ride from Hurricane Harvey, that is still in motion, to the ongoing actions, decisions, and diversions created by President Trump we have come to expect. Stay safe.

People united for the Great American Solar Eclipse - for some a fun time - others reporting a spiritual moment. We remember and move on ...

A feeling of unity could also be found at rallies and other meetings across the nation as people find their voice and seek ways to make things better for themselves and their communities. The masses have always risen up in times of consciousness shift, so now we see where this is rapidly heading. Nothing moves slowly any more.

In sports Floyd Mayweather Beat Conor McGregor by 10th-Round TKO as both men went home financial winners. Here at home, the Giants beat the Jets last night as we move closer to the start of the pro-football season next week (Sept. 7). Lots of different sports to watch if you are a fan. Again the energies unite.

For those who like to gamble - but not on sports - we have the lottery. Last week Mavis Wanczyk landed the largest single lottery jackpot ever in the United States - $758.7 million. Wanczyk's did what most winners do, which is take a lump sum up front, so she'll collect $480.5 million all at once.

As the never ending parade of award shows continues - tonight we find the Video Music Awards - VMAS . Since I'm not a fan of reality TV - I'll record the show and watch selected performance as time permits. Just as we noted with the fake dramas between Mayweather and McGregor - we see the same algorithm playing out between several of the female singers that will appear tonight. It's all staged. It's the "bitch concept" that dysfunctional people seem to embrace. Isn't the Trump presidency another reality series that keeps the country enthralled in its weekly dramas?

Over in Black Rock Desert people prepare for the annual Burning Man Festival (August 27 - September 4, 2017) - unity again of like-minded souls - usually highly creative. The conversations this year should be extremely interesting based on the state of the world. I received my first email from someone out of California who said a major topic of concern is North Korea.

take Frankfurt by Storm

Back in the day my daughter Zsia was a regional champion gymnast with Nova Gymnastics in Brooklyn. Many of the girls and parents, especially from Manhattan Beach, remained friends. Today I received an email from my friend Marion (we go back to High School) who is in Germany. Her daughter Alysia was on the Nova team. Marion wrote "We are in Frankfurt Germany where today we will be watching our granddaughter Kyra play invitational soccer against a German team - oy veh!" Good luck girls! It's a lot about team spirit!

Meeting in the park

The park across the street from my house has suddenly become very busy. Monday, the day of the eclipse, I saw a group of people sitting under a shade tree. I assumed they gathered there to view the eclipse, so I decided to join them. Once in the park, the energies of the people felt very unstable. I noted two women and about 20 men. I quietly sat down on the far end of a bench noticing that a man dressed in a red shirt was addressing the group. I couldn't hear him over the noise of the traffic so I quietly whispered to the man sitting next to me, "What's going on?" He explained it was a support group but he didn't say why they were meeting. His expression told me that I didn't belong, so I slowly walked away. Back upstairs I assumed I would watch the eclipse from my terrace, but as the time grew near I decided to go downstairs, eclipse glasses in hand. I stopped to talk to my neighbors waiting in the air condition lobby ... then walked out into the street. The energies were very different as I met the people described below. The support group had dispersed and everything felt comfortable and in balance ...

Tuesday, I looked out over the park and saw another group of people meeting for what I assumed was a therapy session -> I was correct. They disbanded as other things started happening in the park. Entering the scene, as I watched from my terrace, were major media and police officers, their cars extending down the block to Fort Hamilton. I even noted a State Trooper parked just outside the park. I never see them in this area. Once again I took my cell phone and ventured out into the 92° heat and humidity to see what was going on. The object of the media and law-enforcement presence centered around the removal of civil war monuments, several of which are in my neighborhood. This was a throwback from last week when they removed the two plaques in front of the church around the corner. A cameraman from NBC told me that I missed a very short rally but it was peaceful ... so far ... hey you never know. He and I looked at each other as if anticipating something greater is on the horizon though each of us said nothing. As I walked back upstairs I wondered if this was going to become a regular meeting place for support groups and others.

In Brooklyn, a rally was held Tuesday as protesters fight for the renaming of General Lee Avenue and Stonewall Jackson Drive in Fort Hamilton. Both Governor Andrew Cuomo and Congresswoman Yvette Clark have called the Secretary of the Army to request the change, but he has said he believes the issue is too divisive.

Eclipse Pics

What Nikki and I found was a feeling of sharing freely ... glasses and viewing boxes with everyone. She said this was the best Manhattan energy she has experienced in a long time. I felt the same about Brooklyn. People across the nation experienced the same camaraderie and fun. With everything going on in the Trump administration, this energy was greatly needed to bond people together and share their stories about the experience. Perhaps it was an indicator of whatever unites us at the end, comes from above.

I met an 8 year old boy and his mom and took several pics of them so he can share them when he goes back to school. They took these two pics of me as we walked to the park where we met other people.

Everything that is happening today - for better or worse - is uniting consciousness.
Tomorrow, many worldwide meditations are happening with that specific intent.

Eclipses: Science, History, Mythology, Astrology, Pseudoscience

We arrive at an interesting week highlighted by the total solar eclipse tomorrow. There are 'eclipse chasers' and others who have been waiting for this moment for decades. Many have made this a vacation time or an extended weekend. People are preparing in different parts of the United States to view the eclipse and experience its energies. It could be lots of fun. I'll check out the eclipse from Brooklyn just not sure where. Earlier in the day I have a reading with a client in South Carolina on her birthday. She will have a better view than we do in the city. Enjoy.

This week political and conspiracy buffs await the current turn of events in US history. Are Trump and associates, in or out of the White House, aiming to change the face of the political systems in the United States? Is it to help revolutionize things or as always about power and control ... and of course money. Always there are behind the scenes conspiracies and the players programmed to act them out. Most interesting last week was the removal of Steve Bannon who returned to Breitbart to complete what he believes is his mission. Having a mission is what we are programmed to seek - our purpose for being here - to make a difference etc. etc. etc. I expect Kellyanne Conway to leave next ... and there will be others in the Trump WH ... until there are none. Tick tock.

Tuesday ... yes we will be here Tuesday ... the sun moves into Virgo, which I call Virgo Transition or time of great change - jobs, career, education, relocation, relationships, priorities ... All of this is happening in Mercury Retrograde this year. Happy Birthday to those born in Virgo.

Lunar and Solar eclipses have always been markers of change and evolution, dating to ancient times and civilizations. In the days before humanity became enlightened, the solar eclipse represented a time of fear and darkness. We have learned to see beyond myth and dark magic that controls through illusion, and moved into scientific understanding, though many still hold onto old beliefs linked to fear.

Eclipses not only have gravitational affect on our bodies and planet Earth, but also affect the collective unconscious, the grids, and hold astrological significance in our natal charts, as well as the charts of nations and businesses. An eclipse seems to stop time, stop energy, and stop movement. Where once there was light filtering through the elemental forces of the zodiac into the Earth's aura, there is suddenly darkness, nothingness, a temporary lack of input from the Sun or Moon that serves to bring our awareness closer to the energy of the Solar or Lunar season, and thus intensify it.

The eclipse is the The Black Sun and its symbolism. It is also aligned with prophecies, both ancient and current, about the end of the world - or the hologram Fading to Black. Closure will come at a time people are least expecting it - but most aware and wanting it - based on events in their timelines. It all happens out of the blue. On an intuitive level many will sense the ending in whatever way they are programmed. Everything happening now are precursors to that end.

Steve Bannon - What's Next?

Friday Conspiracy Diversion: Steve Bannon became the 4th Senior advisor to leave the WH in the past 5 weeks returning to Breitbart and vowing to 'go to war' for Trump's agenda. (Never a dull moment). Again you stop and wonder who's calling the shots and what is their agenda. Maybe I watch too much science-fi but could there be one or more alien factions plotting to take over the government ... all the while laughing at Trump and his cronies?

Also in the energies of the eclipse ...

The Black Sun

Once again chaos and violence dominated the grids this week
from the Protests in Charlottesville, Virginia and their aftermath to
terrorism in Spain which may or may have ended as of this post.

Black Sun (Eclipse) as an Occult Symbol

Does this in any way connect with current events?

The term Black Sun (German Schwarze Sonne), also referred to as the Sonnenrad (German for "Sun Wheel"), is a symbol of esoteric and occult significance. Its ancient design is also found on a sun wheel mosaic incorporated into a floor of Wewelsburg Castle during the Nazi era. Today, it may also be used in occult currents of Germanic neopaganism, and in Irminenschaft or Armanenschaft - inspired esotericism - but not necessarily in a racial or neo-Nazi context. Despite its contemporary use, the Black Sun had not been identified with the ornament in Wewelsburg before 1991, although it had been discussed as an esoteric concept in neo-Nazi circles since the 1950s.

The Black Sun in Mesoamerican Mythology

The Black Sun in Mesoamerican Mythology has many mystical meanings, among them it is connected to the god Quetzalcoatl and his penetration in the Underworld through the west door after his diurnal passage on the sky. For the Mexicas there were two suns, the young Day sun and the ancient sun, the Dark sun. Some scholars regard the mythological Black sun as the ancient female origin of all, it is both tomb and womb. This way, it is the oneness that uniformly integrates unawareness, death, and yet an expectation of fecundity. The Aztecs associated the passage of the Black Sun, on its nightly journey through the underworld with the image of a butterfly. The butterfly, in turn, is an archetypical symbol of the transcendent soul, transformation and mystical rebirth, whereas also seen in the figure of the frightening earth goddess Itzpapalotl, the "Obsidian Butterfly", that devoured people during the solar eclipses, while the Aztec underworld was the eternal dwelling place of the souls. According to the Codex Rios, the underworld was made of nine layers. The first level was the Earth's surface, which also had the entrance, or the face of a gigantic toad that devoured the dead and gave access to the other eight lower levels. The souls of the dead occupied the ninth level known as "Mictlan Opochcalocan".

Does anyone "see" Quetzalcoatl and/or the 2012 Mayan Prophecy Grid? I see nothing as if they were deleted. So why is this part of the hologram still running? Hmmm ....

As to whether Nibiru (and the Reptilians) are going to make an appearance at this time - the answer is No even by Zacharia Sitchin's calculations.

The Black Feather Sun

The Black Feathered Sun is a Plains Indian symbol with stylized feathers pointing both inwards and outwards; inward towards the center and outward to the circumference. It combines the symbols of the sun and the eagle and depicts the universe; the center; solar power; radiation of power; and majesty. - An Illustrated Encyclopedia of Traditional Symbols. This image was originally sent to me by a reader of Crystalinks in the beginning, 1995. Seeing it triggered something having do with dark matter or dark energy or antimatter or more to the point the black hole from which the hologram emerges.

Removing Two Robert E. Lee Plagues
in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn

Wednesday August 16, 2017

This morning I walked around the corner to St. John's Episcopal Church in Bay Ridge after reading about the removal of Confederate General Robert E. Lee's plaques, outside a local church, and made the video above.

There are many landmark monuments in this area once traversed by famous men like George Washington and Robert E. Lee. For many people - monuments - no the matter where they are found across the planet - are messages set in stone to honor someone or something and to be remembered by those who would follow and create a new day (experience).

The world is changing but first we have to clean up our old messes if only symbolically and remember the nature of reality. Everything we experience in physical reality is built on dramas and conspiracies symbolically seen through the "lens of time" or the "eye of the camera" projecting images into this reality for us to experience. Watch the Video - skip to 48:00 minutes

Americans have fought for freedom in many wars continuing on today with bigger weapons - from nuclear or cyber. Always there is the hope that we have become a civilized species tolerant of our differences in the algorithm of human design.

Emotions have been heating up the past few days as we approach the solar eclipse on August 21, 2017. It all started last weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia. 2017 Incident in Charlottesville, Virginia

Whatever is going on behind the scenes seems to be uniting us as a country fighting for human rights and equality all while dealing with the abhorrent behavior of current president Donald Trump who seems to side with racist groups. He Went Rogue: President Trump's Staff Stunned After Latest Charlottesville Remarks

Donald Trump did not accidentally praise neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and pro-confederate demonstrators who killed a young woman last weekend and injured 20 others, last weekend. He is building back something that was a long-standing force for political power and terrorism in this country for generations. He's now doing what he can to resurrect it.

Here's something interested reported last night by Rachel Maddow (with written proof) and covered in Wikipedia

    On Memorial Day in 1927, the Ku Klux Klan marched in Queens to protest that "Native-born Protestant Americans" were being "assaulted by Roman Catholic police of New York City". Fred Trump, Donald trump's father, was one of seven men who were arrested that day "on a charge of refusing to disperse from a parade when ordered to do so." In 2016, Vice magazine reported on their investigation of earlier newspaper clippings and found that Trump was the only person arrested who was not charged with any crime, leading them to conclude that he could have been a bystander; they also speculated that Trump may have been a member of the KKK, which had gone through a revival in urban areas after 1915. When asked about the issue in September 2015 by The New York Times, Donald Trump, then a candidate for presidency of the United States, denied that his father had been arrested, or that he had been in the KKK.

Religious leaders to remove plaques in Brooklyn commemorating visit from Robert E. Lee   New York Daily News- August 16, 2017

Ripples from the violent protests in Charlottesville have reached Brooklyn, where religious leaders had a plaque removed today marking Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee's stay in the Brooklyn. Leaders of the New York Episcopal Diocese announced Tuesday that they will be removing two plaques that have been standing outside St. John's Episcopal Church in Bay Ridge since 1912.

"I think it is the responsible thing for us to do," Bishop Lawrence Provenzano told Newsday. "People for whom the Civil War is such a critical moment - and particularly the descendants of former slaves shouldn't walk past what they believe is a church building and see a monument to a Confederate general." The United Daughters of the Confederacy commissioned the plaques to mark the spot where Lee planted a tree outside the Fort Hamilton Parkway house of worship near 99th St. - just outside of the Fort Hamilton Army Base.

"This Tree Was Planted By General Robert Edward Lee while Stationed At Fort Hamilton from 1842 to 1847," one of the two plaques read. "The Tree Has Been Restored And This Tablet Placed Upon It By the New York Chapter United Daughters of The Confederacy. April 1912."

Lee is said to have planted several trees outside the church - which is currently being sold - during his stay at Fort Hamilton in the 1840s, about 20 years before he was named general of the Confederate Army. The tree the plaque stands before is a 'descendant' of the original tree Lee planted.

After white supremacists brought death and mob violence to Charlottesville on Saturday, Provenzano directed all of the churches in the diocese to remember the people of Charlottesville, especially those targeted by the protests. The marchers in Virginia do not represent who we are as God's people or citizens of this nation. In the face of such evil and ignorance, the church must stand in prayer and witness to the all inclusive love of Jesus Christ, he said.

Earlier this month, the U.S. Army shot down demands to rename two streets inside the Fort named after Lee and Stonewall Jackson, who also served at the base two decades before the Civil War.

"Wow Signal" 40 Yeas Later

  "Wow Signal" Google Videos

The Wow! space signal was heard 40 years ago... Is the mystery now solved? - August 15, 2017

Wow! mystery signal from space finally explained  
PhysOrg - June 7, 2017

"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 Festival

  Woodstock Google Videos

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.
