Passing Thoughts - McCain, Aretha, Neil Simon

We honor three iconic figures in American history - The Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin, Six-term Senator John McCain, and Pulitzer Prize winning author Neil Simon. Each holds a special place in their respective fields -- music, service to country, and the creative arts - film and theatre. They changed the way things work and did it their way. The nation and the world will mourn them this week and beyond.

Farewell John McCain

Honoring the memory of Senator John McCain who will be buried Sunday at United States Naval Academy Cemetery, Annapolis, MD. McCain will be laid to rest among other Navy heroes, from the Civil War to Afghanistan. He will be buried next to his best friend at US Naval Academy, Adm. Chuck Larson, who passed away in 2014. John McCain's 106-year-old mother to attend Washington memorial service, Annapolis burial

In death, Senator McCain is paying tribute to two things that meant the most to him - friendship and the military. This is the energy of saying goodbye to a former President. Whether you approved or disapproved of who he was, he always put country first. His passing will have a major impact on the political climate in the US - as people try to heed his words and rectify damages done by the current administration.

Simulation Hypothesis - Crystalinks Turns 23 in the Matrix

Simulation Theory ... ah yes ... the theory that we are computer generated multidimensional projections in a hologram created by algorithms as part of a biogenetic experiment to experience emotions at this level of reality.

Monday, the topic of Simulation Theory was addressed on Elementary in an episode called "The Visions of Norman P. Horowitz". What did I learn? Not much but I didn't know how many people, in all walks of life, are programmed to "get it". Further, people who believe in Simulation Theory have conferences which I'd like to check out.

In the episode Sherlock Holmes did not agree nor disagree with the theory. Watch the episode

That said - a Facebook friend emailed the video below today as once again humanity awakens to its origins. I'm not here to convince you - just to share. You will only get it when your programming triggers memory. This goes beyond aliens, gods, myths, etc. It's all science and math.

Once you get it, everything becomes busy work and diversions as many of you already know. It's like passing the time each day with an intuitive understanding that you're waiting for something you're just not sure what it is. There's nothing to do at this level of consciousness but wait... and find ways to enjoy the passages of time.

Years ago I wrote a book called 2012 Sarah and Alexander. In it reality shifted on July 4, 2012 - as many of you who read the book remember.

So what happened in this reality on July 4, 2012? Physicists working with the Large Hadrian Collider discovered the Higgs Boson a.k.a. The God Particle.

We segue six years into the future to present day:

John McCain Quotes

Whenever America was in a fight during his long lifetime, John McCain was in the thick of it. McCain, who has died at the age of 81, was a naval bomber pilot, prisoner of war, conservative maverick, giant of the Senate, twice-defeated presidential candidate and an abrasive American hero with a twinkle in his eye. Read more ...

Tributes from former US presidents and across the political spectrum have poured in. Barack Obama, who beat Mr McCain to the White House in 2008, said they shared a "fidelity to something higher". George W Bush described him as "a patriot of the highest order".

President Donald Trump, whom Mr McCain had strongly criticized, tweeted his "deepest sympathies" to McCain's family but did not comment on his life.

Sources quoted by US media said Trump would not be invited to the funeral and the current administration would probably be represented by Vice President Mike Pence. Former Presidents Obama and George W Bush are expected to give eulogies.

Crystalinks Turns 23

August 25, 2018

On this date, 23 years ago, Crystalinks went online for the first time as a digital website in the Age of Technology. It would change my life, and that of the millions of readers who have passed through its portals either on a daily basis, or coming and going through the decades. Crystalinks remains in a state of consciousness evolution awaiting a defining movement when illusion becomes truth.

In the years since Crystalinks was first created the following presidents have been in office: Bill Clinton, GW Bush, Barack Obama, and now Donald Trump who currently occupies the spaces between the lines as a catalyst for everything wrong in society and the need for change.

My blogs have evolved from simple metaphysical thoughts and exercises to complex integrated venues that cover everything from science to pseudoscience and more, recorded in Crystalinks' archives. Many well-known people have passed during these 23 years, their accomplishments honored through these pages.

Two generations have become adults teaching us that with each page that turns in the book of life something new, and often unexpected, occurs. We have seen Earth changes accelerate exponentially as I blogged in the beginning. All of our lives, experiences, and the way we look at reality, have morphed into who we are today as we continue to quest for our true purpose.

Though most metaphysical websites came and went through the decades, it's your support that has allowed Crystalinks to maintain its power and influence in shaping humanity until the end. Thank you again. Please continue to join me as, like Crystalinks, we all remain a Work in Progress.

If I was Queen

If I was Queen I would ... rescue all the souls.

If I was Q (Star Trek) I would ...

Friday, August 24, 2018


So there I was this morning wondering about the collapse of sacred sites across the world in lieu of earthquakes and flooding and everything I knew is going to happen ... as the TV played nearby.

The panel on a news show was laughing about ... something one of the guests called Peckergate (Ellie giggling). The conversation was about one of the most notorious tabloids - the National Enquirer and its Publisher and CEO David Pecker colluding with Trump before the 2016 election.

Is there anyone Trump didn't collude with? Of course Pecker gets Trump in trouble time after time - but this might be his downfall - let's call it Trumpgate for today ... ouch! Over the years Trump trusted Pecker but one can't keep things going forever - alas they collapse.


Pecker reportedly was granted immunity in the investigation of Michael Cohen in exchange for providing info on hush money deals. David Pecker, the head of American Media Inc., told federal prosecutors that President Trump had knowledge of Cohen's payments to women who said Trump had affairs with them, sources told CNN; Trump has denied the affairs. American Media Inc. didn't respond to CNN's requests for comment. Cohen, Trump's former lawyer, pleaded guilty Tuesday to eight criminal counts and said in court he committed some of his crimes at Trump's request.

Virgo Transition

"Virgo Transition" happens annually when the sun is in Virgo. More than any other time of the year people address change highlighted with: weather, education, jobs, businesses, relocations, relationships, health, society, the start of the new year in Numerology, and usually the start of the Jewish New Year ... a major energy shifter and generator.

Sometimes the changes are guided by your soul. Other times they seem thrust upon you - like the sudden end of a relationship. It can be fun or scary, but there is no escaping change. Look around and see how your life, and those of others, has changed in Virgo Transition in the past and what you predict for next year.

In Virgo Transition students head off to universities and institutes of higher learning, to plan a future. Don't major in anything that doesn't result in a way to earn a living after you graduate. Art, music, film, and all the fun therapeutic majors we all embrace and enjoy, must also be combined with a practical side to life, as the economy and job hunting are not easy, and school is expensive. To the students: What do you see the world looking like on your graduation day?

Guilty - Trump, Manafort, Cohen, Cabal

When Things Happen Simultaneously

Sometimes there are players in the game who have money, power, and superiority. They play above the law having avoided criminal action over many years if not decades. Mostly they work in the shadows while other times they are public figures. We find this type of character in real life, film, television, and more.

We dislike what they stand for and yet they have existed, and continue to exist in the game. We wait and watch for their overthrow be they in positions of authority in government, the church, business, or more directly in our own lives and workplaces.

In the past we've see these men overthrown only to be replaced by someone just as, or more sinister than they were. Alas, in end times, these antagonis are going to fall by the wayside as those who protect and defend the rule of law assert their power to remove them.

In our current timeline we are watching and waiting for the impeachment of Donald Trump and others in his sphere. As a First Lady who has yet to make her mark in history Melania is making a solo trip to Africa in October to educate herself on the issues facing children throughout the continent ... or she is just distances herself from the White House. I believe she was waiting for her parents to become naturalized US citizens before building a life of her own as she sees Trump's downfall before his term ends.

Trump was dealt double legal setbacks almost simultaneously on Tuesday, as his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, implicated him in a federal crime, and his former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, was found guilty of bank and tax fraud. We have yet to hear from special prosecutor Robert Mueller, more from Omarosa , and perhaps from others as yet unmentioned.

Did you know that the first two sitting members of Congress to endorse Donald Trump for president were:

1. Congressman Chris Collins who was indicted on felony charges less than two weeks ago

2. Congressman Duncan D. Hunter who is running for reelection in November. Yesterday Hunter was indicted on multiple felony charges which would have been made major headlines were the story not overshadowed by Manafort and Cohen being found guilty.

The Fall of Cabal Leaders

When Things Happen Simultaneously

In this world where men of power think they are invincible - we come to two similar characters played by actor John Noble in the TV series - Salvation and Elementary.

Monday night both series aired one after the other. You probably remember John as Dr. Walter Bishop the archetypal mad scientist who traveled between parallel realities along with his family and former partner/nemesis Dr. William Bell (Leonard Nimoy) in Fringe with little regard for the consequences.

In Salvation John plays Nicholas Tanz the head of a sinister cabal dating back to the 1980's whose agenda is to run the world - or at least the US government. His nephew Darius Tanz is a billionaire genius and scientist who is trying to save the world from an impending disaster as an asteroid approaches - along the way becoming POTUS. Monday night Darius realizes it was his uncle who created the opportunity to be president - which he didn't want - and now equates to The Manchurian Candidate. Will Darius and his cohorts take down the cabal and stop the asteroid from hitting Earth?

Season 4 (2016) of Elementary introduced Sherlock's father Morland Holmes played by John Noble who runs a cabal with global connections to which Sherlock has estranged himself as they play through their issues. Sherlock is an eccentric character - perhaps a bit of an autistic savant - considered one of the greatest detectives of all times.

Quote: There's a certain pattern that exists with geniuses - an eccentricity,
a lack of social graces and an inability to really communicate with mere mortals.

Sun in Virgo

Happy Birthday to the readers of this blog born in Virgo.

Virgo is a mutable Earth sign ruled by Mercury.

It's interesting that the day Mercury went direct Paul Manafort and Robert Cohen were simultaneously found guilty.

Virgo Transition has begun perhaps a day or two earlier in 2018 so expect the next month to have surprises in different arenas.

Virgo Transition signals changes in career, education, relocation, relationships, and more.

Virgo/Vertigo attempts to place anything out of balance back into alignment starting in Libra.

The day after Labor Day - How will Trump's current legal dramas affect Brett Kavanagh becoming a Justice of the Supreme Court?

The sting of Scorpio hosting the mid-term elections will set the pace for the rest of Trump's term.

Earthquakes Continue

Though political diversions keep us busy one must remember to check earthquake activity from day to day. Wednesday - 6.2 off the coast of Oregon - Looking at the Atlantic Plate we have a 7.3 near the coast of Venezuela, that could shake Florida and the Caribbean in the near future.

Senior Citizens Day - Two old goats from Brooklyn ...

August 21, 2018

Senior Citizens Day

National Senior Citizens Day honors our elderly population.

Though many of my friends are seniors, we don't live our lives that way.

Two old goats from Brooklyn decided to take the train to the city

The Route 495 lane closures at Lincoln Tunnel did not cause chaos - nor did the streets around Radio City Music Hall filled with people who came to see the performers and other celebs at the VMAs.

Delays came when two goats got loose on the subway tracks of the N line in Brooklyn not far from here. Trains were rerouted and most people thought it was funny. The goats wound up in NJ and missed the VMAs. Next time they should Uber.
