“The Ultimate Tyranny in a society is not control by martial law. It is control by the psychological manipulation of consciousness, through which reality is defined so that those who exist within it do not even realize that they are in prison. They do not even realize that there is something outside of where they exist.” - Bringers of the Dawn




“Our civilization has been constantly afflicted with disharmony for thousands of years now. We have been waging war after war against each other and against Mother Nature, the global community is extremely divided and this is no accident. The good news is things do not have to be in perpetuity the way they are. To generate change that benefits the greater good, though, Earth people must figure out first how they ended up where they are today, and we are not talking here conventional history.”

- A Time of Change, Volume 1, Opening Statement


We are in the middle of a spiritual and cognitive process of awakening that in the end will generate an existential paradigm shift. This is a time of change, the beginning of the end of the old state of affaires.

From ancient times the sages have always questioned the morality, the sanity, and the purpose of the institution of religion and they exposed the nefarious close-knit relation between religious institutions and those ruling over the people in the name of an illusory deity. Later rationalists would take apart the reductionist explanation for the nature and the origin of life offered by materialist scientists, Darwinists included.

There is a new science in town providing a window into the only rational explanation for the origin of everything. Some are calling it quantum physics. Others refer to it by theoretical physics, with the most scientists describing it as being field theory. No matter what label one attaches to it, based on what quantum physics reveals to us a large pool of scientists has reached the conclusion that what we perceive as reality is a product of consciousness collapsing an energy field. That means what we perceive as reality is only an illusion we generate, something otherwise acknowledged in Eastern philosophy for thousands of years. This puts the human being back at the center of everything, and this is where we need to look for the real explanation for the origin of life forms not just on this planet but all over the universe.

Something the most brilliant among the people of the planet have known for thousands of years yet it is never acknowledged in houses of worship or in schools and universities, science and spirituality are superimposed access paths to the liberating truth. However, the empiricist materialist scientist and the profiteer of what has always been the business of institutionalized religion either dismiss or distort the meaning of the spiritual, and this too is no accident. In fact, espousing provably similar views, church creationists, empiricists and Darwinists lead people into living according to a false perception of reality. The universe, on the other hand, operates at the frequency of truth and honesty and this constant conflict between natural law and the way we exist on this planet manifests as the state of crisis civilization Earth has been experiencing for thousands of years now.

Borders are abstract lines of separation, we all breath the same one and only atmosphere, navigate a one and only planetary ocean and submit to the same universal order. As demonstrated along the time, we are also globally socially deeply connected. As a result, in a world where practicing deception on a large scale has become the norm no one is safe and same as everybody else the deceiver will have to pay a price for his life choices. A Time of Change addresses this situation by taking apart and putting into a revealing light thousands of years old, as well as more recent made-up stories about the origin of man and the nature of reality. They were meant to hide the liberating truth that benefits the greater good of the global collective.

Once the air is clear of deliberate misrepresentations and distortions, the reader will be introduced to a new interpretation of known facts and phenomena. This will forever change the way we perceive ourselves, the world we live in, and the way we understand the purpose of our being here.

Work on the project started at the beginning of 2006. An initial one-volume version was briefly released in 2013 as an e-book. It was taken down within weeks. Between 2013 and 2020 the project would continue to be a work in progress and there have been at least fifteen versions of the complete book. Between the progressive editing and the research done for the book the author went over hundreds of thousands of pages and thousands of images. It took a lifetime of observing nature, human interaction and organized society in general, and close to fifteen years of dedicated work on the project to arrive at the conclusions you will be introduced to within its pages possibly for the first time in the recent history of Earth-humans.

"It Is Destined To Happen This Way" (Video) - THEY ARE LOOSING CONTROL OVER OUR CIVILIZATION. IS THIS FOR THE GREATER GOOD?


I have stated months ago that change will come from what is going on right now, that this was definitely not about a health crisis, and that there will be no going back to "normal." I am sharing this video not because I am endorsing everything stated there. I am sharing it for some of the facts acknowledged in it, and not for the way they are interpreted. This video, where someone warns humankind about someone else seeking to take control over our civilization is made actually by those who, as you are going to see in A Time of Change are currently controlling the world. These entities are realizing they are losing their grip on humankind, reason why they are desperately advocating against globalization, which is another way of taking control over the planet and its people. Is this done in the name of the greater good? One could only hope.   

No doubt about it, we do need to change the way we exist on this planet, and it is no coincidence the book I have been working on for almost 15 years now is called A Time of Change. It is a shame we are doing this, again, by the way of a lie, but in the condition we are and we have been for thousands of years as a civilization, with antagonistic groups vying for taking charge of the controls in order to be the ones establishing the direction humankind is to follow, an open admission of this move toward change would lead to war, including civil war and this way to totally out of control chaos. Look around you, look at your TV screens, and you will find out we are just about there. There is a global contest among these antagonistic factions over who has more power to manipulate the public's perception of reality and, once again, one can only hope the good guys are going to win in the end. Of course, the question is, are there any good guys left?

Yes, we do need a global central government, a United Nation government. We need to manage our planetary resources for the benefit of everyone and not only of a few. We need to abandon belief systems, all political forms of government, democracy included, to revise our monetary system, reconfigure content and logistics wise our education system, and we need to eliminate artificial borders that keep us divided for no good reason. We need to learn to live as one. This is not totalitarianism, as stated in the video. This is a rational approach to managing our natural and human resources. 

The planet belongs to all of us, and we all belong to the planet. Individualism makes sense only when we are freely dedicating our existence to the greater good, to the advancement of our global collective.

In time, all of the above rational change will bring about peace on the planet and a more equitable society where all lines of division are now eliminated. If anything, the current system is a slave system where a majority of the people are used as labor for the benefit of the 1% of the population of the planet. If anything, the current system is meant to keep a significant part of the population under the poverty line while forcing another significant segment of the population into a constant struggle for existence, always facing the possibility of failure, of bankruptcy, of destitution. 


This must stop, and yet, change is always bound to create some level of chaos and discomfort. It has to be done, though. It is the right thing to do. It will be done. The caption on the video thumbnail says, "It should have happened in 2021." This is actually in preparation of what is to come, and it will not happen without fierce opposition.

The pandemic has become very political, if it ever was anything but, with the states ran by Democrat governors being under the most drastic and the most prolonged, otherwise senseless lockdowns while other states are opening up with no dramatic consequences. Is the mask the new muzzle? Is social distancing a way of making people afraid of each other? We were once told, "the only thing we have to fear is ... fear itself," and FDR was a 33 degree Freemason. He was deeply associated with those who had a clear vision of what the new world order everyone is being made afraid of these days had to be.

They are now throwing racial tension into the mix, with these one-sided tragic acts surfacing and being emphasized in the year of the Presidential elections - Dr. Martin Luther King was assassinated during an election year, the Rodney King incident that sparked the Los Angeles riots, that too occurred in an election year - never before or after that. The pandemic is turning, as predicted, into pandemonium, with riots and shootings in the streets, buildings being burn down for no good reason, all that accompanied by the traditional looting. 

"All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia," said once George Orwell. Indeed, no matter who is organizing this, and we really don't know if it's the good guys or the bad guys, it seems we are living continuously in the Animal Farm, and that there is no escaping from it. One thing we must always keep in mind, though, the truth will make everyone free. As long as we do not allow anyone to make us lose track of it, this is a reality we the people will always have working for us.

CAPITALISM AND INSTITUTIONALIZED RELIGION: A TRUE STORY (An Excerpt from A TIME OF CHANGE, Volume 1, Chapter 4)



"No doubt about it, slavery, an institution condoned all over the Bible was the foundation for the capitalist system. The current engine of the system is capital issued by financial institutions in the form of worthless banknotes assigned a fictitious value. Even if the notes were backed by gold, and that is something no one could be sure of, they would still be nothing but a piece of special paper since you do not have access to the gold the value of the money supposedly derives from. True fact, according to ourworldindata.org the population of the planet has almost doubled since 1975. That means the monetary system had to come up with at least double additional print money, more so when the average national salary has considerably increased since. To that one has to also consider the effects of the inflation, with $100 in 1975 having the same purchase power as $466.97 in 2018. Does anyone truly believe the amount of gold held in federal treasury vaults has tripled since 1975?

Financial institutions have a tremendous influence over if not total control of the economy of the world and this way over the life of billions of working humans. Among others, the system will always generate significant profit for those who own significant capital, as well as a class of poor and financially insecure people, the work force that generates the profit enjoyed by those who control the capital. Earth-humans are trapped within this system. Once again, this is no accident and they are beginning to become aware of that. This happens to be bad news for the status quo, and it may end up throwing our civilization into chaos. This is why beginning with 2020 things would start to unravel, and why at the same time a path to a new way of existing was being more or less surreptitiously laid out as the people were globally paralyzed with fear.


The brilliant principals among the founding fathers of America have anticipated all these problems with the monetary system and with the banks. Alexander Hamilton is considered the father of the national bank and in 1791, Congress approved his proposal for creating such a bank. He is also the one who put the basis for a system of use and abuse of American paper money. On the other hand, one of the instances when Jefferson and Adams were on the same page was when it came to their common disdain of banks and paper money.

In Friends Divided, Gordon Wood remarks that Thomas Jefferson feared “the dynamic commercial society” and that he “hated all the capitalistic accouterments that went with it – banks, stock market, liquid capital, and especially paper money.” Both Jefferson and Adams were enthusiastic admirers of Destutt de Tracy, the author of Treatise on Political Economy. According to this French philosopher and economist, “Paper money is the most culpable and the most fatal of all fraudulent bankruptcies.”

Since religious institutions are an intrinsic part of the current existential system, religious leaders take advantage of something religion has helped create enjoying sumptuous living on the backs of their congregations. The Catholic Church was the first to figure out that a massive accumulation of wealth translates into significant political power, and that by having lots of money and political power one could control powerless people struggling to make ends meet. This would allow the hierarchy of religious institutions to accumulate even more material riches and to wield even more political power, and they have been playing this system for hundreds of years now.


Priests, preachers, pastors and corporate CEO’s all play by the same rules, except that priests, preachers, and pastors pay very little in taxes for the lots of money they make selling nothing but false hopes, a distorted illusion of reality and a corrupt version of the history of humans on this planet. 

Within a system where money talks, priests too want to keep their business profitable and be influential. They too want to drive expensive cars, fly expensive personal jets, live in big mansions, and many of them do. Unlike billionaires like Bill Gates and Elon Musk, though, once again, they produce nothing of value for society. The only thing they have to offer is dishonest entertainment for a confused trusting poor in spirit, a staged production they claim is about addressing man’s spiritual needs when in reality everything is an act of deception meant to create a false perception of reality.

To make it look like they are dedicated to serving the community, on occasion religious institutions perform symbolic acts of charity. Their charity money, however, comes from donations and it represents only a small portion of the money the churches have in their bank accounts. To give an example, according to an August 18, 2012 article in The Economist on the Catholic Church financial dealings, it was estimated that 


annual spending by the church and entities owned by the church was around $170 billion in 2010 (the church does not release such figures). We think 57% of this goes on health-care networks, followed by 28% on colleges, with parish and diocesan day-to-day operations accounting for just 6% and national charitable activities just 2.7%. (The Catholic Church in America – Earthly Concerns)

Religious institutions have large sums of money invested in banking and industrial operations and only a very small portion of their profits goes to charity. Nevertheless, they put significant effort into creating the illusion that they exist to serve god, Jesus, and the poor. In reality, we would not have the poor and the downtrodden if it were not for a belief system that among others condones and promotes slavery, an institution that has allowed for the establishment of an economic system that will always produce inequality and poverty."

CHANGE IN A TIME OF CHANGE


"Right now we’re in a moment of deep transformation in planetary awareness in which big changes are taken place, and many more are yet to come. Any transformation that’s important entails (hard to avoid) a profound crisis; and this crisis is, without a doubt, undermining the foundations of our civilization. Nevertheless, we are faced with an opportunity without precedent to approach a new developmental paradigm. We, and only we, the citizens of this planet, have the responsibility and the opportunity to change the course of history."
(A New Paradigm for a World in Crisis, Pepón Jover del Pozo, Exopolitics, July 2009, Barcelona, Spain)

The word change is thrown emphatically around by politicians on the campaign trail. Once the votes are counted most everyone forgets they mentioned it but will nonchalantly use that trick, again, the next election cycle. 

Rightfully so people always want change, and yet the expected improvement does not happen when promised or the way it was promised. This is because one of the main functions of a political form of government is to slow down progress to a crawl, especially since change tends to affect the existing order, to undermine "the foundations of our civilization." Most of the time this is done so society would not plunge into chaos, they say, and they are partially correct about that. Nevertheless, society does often end up in chaos anyway, and many a time this is because the protectors of the status quo do not allow for rational change to happen naturally.

The ability of all political systems of government, parliamentary republics where officials are democratically elected included, to control the population by dividing people into antagonistic groups is used by certain entities to manipulate the electorate to their benefit. When things go too far with the disregard for the multitudes, we have riots in the streets, social revolutions, or something similar to what we experience these days in America when corruption in the media, FBI, within our political, judicial system, and within the intelligence agencies is being exposed big time. Even though the mainstream media would report on nothing foreign affairs outside a volcano eruption or an airplane crush in the Far East, news seep out in many other ways and if you know how to read in between the lines one could see something similar goes on all over the world.

OUR WORLD IS A FASCINATING VIRTUAL REALITY EVENT (AN EXCERPT FROM A TIME OF CHANGE, VOLUME 2)




"We were discussing here earlier the fact that the record of everything that ever happened in the history of Earth, of every thought entertained by Earth-humans is kept in what is known as the Akashic Records. This is possible because, as seen, everything in the universe is information carrying energy. Quantum physics suggests material reality is a manifestation of the constant interference between the high frequency information carrying energies of the metaphysical and the low frequency information carrying energies of the so-called material. From the point of view of a human observer the resulting interference pattern is made manifest by the way of our consciousness, a form of energy acting on these energies and causing them to collapse into what we now perceive as material forms.

Related to that since everything in the earth plane is cause and effect, every now and here is simultaneously an end and a beginning part of a potentially infinite cycle of perceived existential events. Our life story is a logical sequence of cause and effect events we choose to experience and also generate. Nothing happens by chance and everything has purpose. The meaning of that is there is always a rational logical explanation for and a good reason why we experience what we experience. A rational logical result of that, among others, it is perfectly possible to predict a possible outcome to our present activities and state of being.

We are not here aimlessly traveling between birth and death into a limited time/space reality. Our journey began long before we were born, we, as in our spirit energy have arrived here from other dimensions, from a place where after our current physical aspect expires we will return only to come back again when and if need it. The purpose of our being here is to experience enlightenment by the way of consciousness awareness growth, to ascend into a higher understanding of reality and this way into a higher dimension within the Natural Order of Creation.

Our being here is part of an extended process of discovery, of reconnecting with knowledge we were once separated from. Without any doubt, the current now and here is never an accident and the universe exists for the purpose of enabling our ascension."

- A Time of Change, Volume 2, Chapter 14, Subchapter "Our World Is A Fascinating Virtual Reality Event."

To be released one volume at a time between 2020 and 2021, under to be determined circumstances.

THE STATE OF "A TIME OF CHANGE"




As those who have visited the blog in the past may remember, A Time of Change started as a newspaper article. The topic was neither church creationism, nor the theory of evolution represented a credible explanation for the origin of humans and life in general on planet Earth. After decades of observing society and nature for me this was a foregone conclusion. To convince a public embracing either belief in a god with alleged supernatural powers or in the miracles of natural selection that supposedly gave us a man able to figure out Calculus one had to debunk the false claims made by both sides of the debate. That led to the initial article growing into an essay, and then into the book A Time of Change is today. 

Work on the article turned essay turned book project started at the beginning of 2006. By 2013 I felt the manuscript was now in its final form, so I rushed to release it as an e-book  through the major e-book retailers. A few weeks later I realized I needed to make significant changes, so I took it down. I published it again, took it down again, made more changes, republished it, then I took it down for good. Work on the manuscript continued for a couple of more years, and then at one point I decided to make the latest version available on this blog, free of charge, in a pdf format. I kept making more changes, though, more significant changes, so I decided to take the pdf file down, again, this time for good.  

Between 2013, when the first version was completed and February of 2020, there have been somewhere between 15 to 17 final "final" versions of what by now was a three-volume 1,400-page book. At times this was as frustrating for me as I assume it was for those who may have attempted to read the book. In my defense, the manuscript has experienced significant improvement in terms of both content and style.

The current state of the book is as follows: 

Volume 1 is ready for the open-minded editor. Considering there is a lot to process in each and every one of the three volumes, I intend to release the book one volume at a time. At this point I intend to release Volume 1 in 2020. 

Volume 2 and Volume 3 are in an advanced state of development. There is always tinkering to be done. Volume 2 will be released in 2021, with the third and the last volume of the book to be released in 2022. As usual, these dates are not carved in stone.

With regard to how and where will the book be released there will be an announcement in a couple of months. A few years into the project it became clear that in today's super-controlled society and with the people's perception of reality being constantly manipulated by entities seeking to protect and preserve the status quo, based on what I was uncovering during the research work it was to be expected that A Time of Change would be a difficult book to sell to publishing houses. And so it is.

EUGENICS: THE AMERICAN LINK TO HITLER’S FINAL SOLUTION (A BOOK EXCERPT - VOLUME 1)



He might have not indented it this way but that does not excuse the fact that most everything Darwin states in this matter is extremely racist, narrow minded, and false. In The Descent of Man, he talks about inferior and superior races and claims human development was tributary to a vicious process of selection, of “the elimination of the slightly less well-endowed individuals.” Herbert Spencer would only rephrase what Darwin claimed in his book when he called it “survival of the fittest.” Indeed, contrary to what some are claiming today in Darwin's defense, Spencer’s catchy line is pure and unadulterated Darwinian nonsense. 


The other question Darwin never addresses is the one about the origin of all those human races living today on planet Earth. Similar to what we have in the Bible, where the Old Testament god wants his chosen race to kill most everyone who does not swear obedience to him, Darwin’s humans live in a dog-eat-dog kind of world where races no one knowns where they came from fight each other for survival. That and the belief in the existence of favored races led to the emergence in the last decades of the 19th century, beginning of the 20th century of the science of eugenics.

Darwin is very clear, a clarity that does not allow for misinterpretations, and equally wrong when he speaks of “favoured races” and of better-endowed individuals of the same species causing some sort of natural selection among the population of the planet, something supposedly leading to the emergence of a superior human. The concept of eugenics was born out of that non-factual view, and this new science was supposed to be a way of creating the perfect human race. All a scientist had to do was eliminate the weaker, the less well-endowed individuals within our communities, as Darwin suggested it happens in nature, and the resulting superior race would have taken over the planet. At the surface it looked like a good, rational idea, reason why even some among the progressive cultural and political personalities of the time were enthusiastically embracing it. As it turned out, since the premises were false, it was actually a very bad idea.

Darwin was convinced the civilized nations would one day overcome and basically completely annihilate the so-called savage races. That nonsense would be soon put to a test and the results were devastating for civilization Earth. Among others, his irrational assumptions became the silent foundation for the ideology embraced by supremacist groups and an essential part of Hitler’s reasoning behind his final solution plan. To justify his crimes, Hitler would use the  argument provided by German scientists who happened to be big supporters and practitioners of eugenics. The movement for race purity, however, did not start under the Nazi, or in Germany. It all began much earlier, in America.

In the 1860s and the 1870s, a certain Francis Galton put eugenics on the map, and many found it to be an attractive, a sound proposition. His passion for eugenics was the result of the influence exerted on him by his cousin’s recently published works on natural and racial selection, two best sellers the complete title of which read On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life, and The Descent of Man, and Selection in Relation to Sex. Indeed, his cousin was no other than Charles Darwin, and no one has ever heard him denouncing Francis’ work for being immoral, racist, and anti-social.

The eugenics movement gained notoriety in America when another Charles, Charles Davenport, created the International Federation of Eugenics Organizations. German scientists joined the institution, and the Swiss-born German psychiatrist and geneticist Ernst Rüdin became one of the presidents of IFEO. He was later appointed director of the Genealogical-Demographic Department at the German Institute for Psychiatric Research in Munich (1917-1945), and director of the German Society for Racial Hygiene of the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research. 


A prominent figure of the scientific community, Rüdin is considered the father of the National Socialist Party’s ideology. In fact, he would end up writing the official racial policy of Nazi Germany.

A Time of Change will be released in 2020 under to be determined circumstances.

PANIS ANGELICUS: A CHURCH SONG DEDICATED TO A MADE UP STORY


You may have heard this song performed by Andrea Bocelli or Luciano Pavaroti, and you may have even liked it. If you are a religious person, you may have liked even better, though you most likely did not know the story behind it. The real story, that is.

The title of the song, Panis Angelicus, translates Bread of Angels, and is a verse from a hymn called Sacris solemniis written in the 13th century by Thomas Aquinas. It was dedicated to the feast of Corpus Christi, the Solemnity of the Holy Body and Blood of Christ. While the lyrics of the song do not directly state the bread is the body of Christ, they imply it is, and this is obviously a reference to the passage in the Bible known as the last supper where the apostles are told the bread on the table is the body of Jesus and the wine in the cup is Jesus' blood. Pretty creepy if you think about it, but this is what the text says and this is what they preach in churches.

What most churchgoers do not know for they were never told is the real story. The ritual known in church Christianity as the Eucharist is based on two different non-Christian traditions that have nothing in common with the life of the one known under the name of Jesus (not his real name anyway).

At the time the Christian church was emerging after its founders, known as the Adversaries, as in the adversaries of true Christology abandoned the original, the secular Christian school of thought and Jesus' true teachings and message, the people were celebrating goddess Ceres, the patron of agriculture by making and eating bread cakes that supposedly represented the "body of the goddess." They were also celebrating god Dionysus by drinking wine that supposedly was "the blood of the god."

Indeed, the last supper story is a made up story. Related to that Jesus did not die on the cross, says the same Bible that also suggests he died on the cross at the age of 33, nor did he resurrect. In fact, as you are going to see in A Time of Change, there is absolutely nothing genuinely Christian in the Christianity of the church, or true, and that includes the term Christ.

In this instance the bishops have dishonestly appropriated two pagan traditions, replaced the pagan gods Ceres and Dionysus with pagan god Jesus so they could put the label Christian on what in reality was a plagiarized story, and then used it as a marketing tool to lure followers of other religions to the new and bigger religion in town.

SOPHIA, THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH, AND THE DARK AGE.


During the editing process, on occasion I would remove text turning out to be a diversion from the topic at hand and this way disrupting the flow of the main argument. This was the case with the story about the St. Sophia Church in Istanbul, Turkey. What follows is the original and now removed from the manuscript text to which I added context representing some of he points made in the book.


The word philosophy comes from the Greek philo sophia, meaning love of wisdom. A rather strange fact considering that same as in the case of Orthodox Judaism, based on the story of Adam and Eve in the Bible knowledge is associated in the Christian religion with the otherwise made-up notion of capital sin, one of the most impressive Christian churches ever was named Saint Sophia. Also known as the Great Church, or the Church of the Divine Wisdom, it was built in Constantinople, Byzantium, today's Istanbul, Turkey, between 532 and 537 CE. Numerous fires and earthquakes have repeatedly destroyed it along the time. It was rebuilt, destroyed again, rebuilt again, and eventually it changed owners. Today, the church is known as Hagia Sophia.

The history of this coveted monumental construction mirrors in many ways the history of humans on this planet after religious institutions took over their communities. From that moment on the life of man would be marred by thousands of years of religious wars, with many of them still going on today. In line with that when the Christian church came to prominence after a group known as the Adversaries seceded from the original Christian school of thought to create a new religious institution with the intent of establishing a monopoly on the business of religion, communities across the Middle East and Europe would be terrorized by the constant infighting between different Christian sects and by the violence perpetrated on competing religions and on the secular schools of thought by the so-called Universal Church.
