TRUE STORY

I was sitting with my long hair
breathing in the air

a dwarf cycled by
stared hard at me
&
disapproved

(this is a true story
only my name has been
changed to protect
the dwarf)

ADVANCED PHYSICS LECTURE
(to be delivered with a spicy Indian accent)

Paper is a fossil of wegetable matter
through which electric lifeforce
has traweled.

Light is luminous electricity.

Mirrors are mercuric elements
redirecting photoelectric images
to electrochemically controlled irises and lenses
along biomagnetic vaves (radio-photonated).

Ve human beings are eeels magnetized on eldoradiated
vheels vithin vheels of massive energy (wiwidly
imaginated).

Yany questions?

IT’S LONELY BEING GOD

It’s lonely being God
Alone with your Thoughts,
dreaming.
Creatures by myriads
on planet grains swept by oceans
of form: writhing, rising and falling
in rhythm of time,
moving.
Not knowing whence they come
nor whither they go,
just living
and dying
and, every so often,
oddly enough, even
loving.

It’s fun to experience

the fruit of awareness
grown out of seeds of
simple existence;
to taste, to touch, to see,
to hear and smell
the life you’ve created.
But it’s so hard to find
someone to share your joys,
who understands that toys
are to play with
and not to stay with
forever.

God sends forth this prayer
hoping you and I will receive
and regard it:
"Dear Figments of My Own Imagination,
I wish you’d get out of my Mind
and make me your Friend.”

THE MONEY MASTERS



For further research these books come highly recommended:

The Creature From Jekyll Island - by G. Edward Griffin

The title refers to the formation of the US Federal Reserve System, which occurred at a secret meeting on Jekyll Island, Georgia in 1910. It was at this meeting that the "Money Trust" - composed of the richest and most powerful bankers in the world, along with a U.S. Senator - wrote the proposal to launch the Federal Reserve System (which is nothing more than a banking cartel) to control the financial system so that the bankers will always come out on top. An absolute must-read. You’ll quickly discover there’s nothing “federal” about the Federal Reserve. Indeed, it's really just a well-disguised private racket We the Sheeple have been spoon-fed since birth to accept as an “official government organization.”

Confessions Of An Economic Hitman - by John Perkins

John Perkins started and stopped writing Confessions of an Economic Hit Man four times over 20 years. He was threatened and bribed in an effort to kill the project, but after 9/11 he finally decided to go through with this exposé of his former professional life. Perkins, one-time chief economist at the Boston strategic-consulting firm, Chas. T. Main, was an "economic hit man" for 10 years, helping U.S. intelligence agencies and multinationals cajole and blackmail foreign leaders into serving U.S. foreign policy and awarding lucrative contracts to American business. Trust me: you’ll never be able to stomach mainstream “news” again.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTARY BY NILA SAGADEVAN

Exposure to the information listed above will slowly, chillingly, bring you to the realization that, ever-active but unseen, omnipotent but un-elected, there exists in the West a formidable core of power that operates silently behind the scenes.

It is a power that is impervious to electoral influence, accountable only unto itself, and exists for one reason alone: the selfish, heartless generation of profit through engineered human conflict.

There is no field of human endeavor more profitable than WAR. And whenever and wherever these grand puppeteers of our destinies choose to "engage" the enemy du jour, our loyal, patriotic, blindly indoctrinated young warriors - our sons and daughters - their brains shrink-wrapped in Old Glory, charge into yet another cruel charade, galvanized into offering their lives to "save" our country, our values, our “freedoms and lifestyles.”

These kids who serve as cannon fodder make their ultimate sacrifice not to preserve the “Land of the Free”, but to feed the Hand of Greed. They unwittingly serve a small, virtually omnipotent coterie of men who function stealthily behind the scenes. The often supreme sacrifices that our young warriors make only serve to stuff the coffers of this dark core of power that remains changeless and in charge through successions of "elected" governments and endless generations of citizenry.

It is by far the most pernicious of parasites - and it lives, feeds, and profits from the misery of war.

Before you dismiss these as the ravings of a mad “conspiracy theorist,” let me tell you what some American luminaries of yore had to say about this "inner government" of which I speak.

The great innovative thinker R. Buckminster Fuller came to understand that the United States [actually, the world] is ruled by powerful men behind the scenes. He wrote shortly before his death in 1983:

"The USA is not run by its would-be 'democratic' government. Nothing could be more pathetic than the role that has to be played by the President of the United States whose power is approximately zero. Nevertheless, the news media and most over-thirty-years-of-age US citizens carry on as if the president had supreme power."

Lest you dismiss Fuller as some aging intellectual venting some conspiratorial fantasy, let’s go to former US President Woodrow Wilson for his opinion on the matter:

"Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it."

Amazing. These chaps even have presidents spooked.

Let’s try President Roosevelt. In a letter dated November 23, 1933, newly elected President Franklin D. Roosevelt wrote to President Woodrow Wilson's top adviser, Colonel Edward House:

"The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson."

What? American presidents speaking in hushed tones of a secret agency of enormous, overwhelming power, under their very watch? And right on American soil?

Well, let’s elicit an opinion from a former member of the US Supreme Court, Justice Felix Frankfurter, for good measure:
"The real rulers in Washington are invisible, and exercise power from behind the scenes."

So much for America's vaunted bipartisan system.

Dear friends, warnings about a “secret world government,” the New World Order, have been voiced by many important, highly credible people over the years. The problem is that we don’t seem to listen. We don’t want to listen.

Here are the words of former New York mayor John F. Hylan, uttered in 1922:

"The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy length over our city, state and nation.... At the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller-Standard Oil interests and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as the international bankers [who] virtually run the US government for their own selfish purposes."

Let’s take a moment to listen to a top former Pentagon official, Colonel L. Fletcher Prouty. Prouty served as the Focal Point liaison officer between the Pentagon and the CIA from 1955 to 1963. From his unique vantage point, he was able to witness the control mechanisms over both intelligence and the military. Writing in 1973, Prouty said:

“The United States is run by a ‘Secret Team’... an inner sanctum of a new religious order answerable only to themselves. The power of the Team derives from its vast intra-governmental undercover infrastructure and its direct relationship with great private industries, mutual funds and investment houses, universities, and the news media, including foreign and domestic publishing houses... All true members of the Team remain in the power center whether in office with the incumbent administration or out of office with the hardcore set. They simply rotate to and from official jobs and the business world or the pleasant haven of academe... This great machine has been molded into the runaway giant that it is today. It is big business, big government, big money, big pressure...all operating in self-centered, utterly self-serving security and secrecy."

President Franklin D. Roosevelt once remarked, "In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way."

Everything is planned - do you really think Bush winning the last two elections wasn't? George W. Bush was preordained to be the next “elected” president of the United States, regardless of what the polls read.

JFK, alas, got too big for his boots.

Another insider who confirmed that a plot was afoot was America's first Secretary of Defense, James Forrestal, who, like JFK, paid with his life for his forthrightness. Beginning in 1947, Forrestal voiced his concern that government leaders were consistently making concessions to the Soviets. He had amassed more than three thousand pages of notes, which he told a friend would be turned into a book to expose the real motives of his superiors. Forrestal said:

"These men are not incompetent or stupid. They are crafty and brilliant. Consistency has never been a mark of stupidity. If they were merely stupid, they would occasionally make a mistake in our favor.”

Forrestal, a man privy to many dark secrets, resigned his office at the request of President Truman on March 2, 1949. Two months later, again at the request of Truman, Forrestal entered Bethesda Naval Hospital for a “routine examination”, because the president as well as some of his peers felt the good Secretary appeared overly “stressed” by too much hard work. A doctor assured his brother that Forrestal was well but refused to allow either the brother or the family priest to see him. On the day that his brother came to take him from the hospital following his “check-up,” Forrestal's body was found on a lower floor of the hospital with a rope around his neck. Officials claimed that Forrestal had committed suicide, but many people - both then and now - disbelieved this verdict outright. His notes and diaries were taken and held by the government for more than a year before a sanitized version was finally released to the public.

Although various officials claimed Forrestal was "insane" at the time, his unbalanced state must have provoked an ability to see into the future. Just before leaving for the Bethesda hospital, Forrestal told a friend that American soldiers would soon be dying in Korea.

This statement came fifteen months before the North Koreans launched a "surprise" attack on the South.

Now think of the phony Gulf Of Tonkin incident that fraudulently launched the Vietnam war - engineered by the New World Order.

Or, Operation Ajax, in 1953, that overthrew Iran’s democratically elected president Mohammed Mossadeq (he won by a landslide), who threatened to restructure that nation’s oil concessions with US and British oil giants - engineered by the New World Order.

Or Operation Northwoods, a vile plot endorsed by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to stage a 9/11-like false flag operation, including shooting US citizens in the streets by fake Cuban “terrorists.” to gain public support for the invasion of Cuba - engineered by the New World Order.

Now think 9/11...

“The issue of knowing who was really behind the 9/11 attacks is of paramount importance to the future of our country, because the ‘official’ assumption that it was the work of 19 Arab amateurs does not match the available facts... Surely [this] constitutes more than sufficient motivation for any patriotic American physicist or engineer to join the search for 9/11 Truth!" - David L. Griscom, PhD*

Nila Sagadevan was born in Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) and educated in Britain. Born in a predominantly Buddhist country to liberal-minded Hindu parents who encouraged belief in a single Creator, he was sent at the age of 5 to Christian boarding schools where he read the Bible, attended Sunday school, and sang in the school choir.

An aeronautical engineer-turned-pilot, Sagadevan left Scotland for America in 1972. He lived in Alaska for 15 years when a profound, life-altering experience changed his concept of earthly religions forever, and caused him to deeply ponder the anthropocentric mindset that guides human life. His quest for knowledge and self-inquiry has led him on a journey through more than 40 countries and to many of the centers of the world's major religions.

Sagadevan, who was the featured guest in a television documentary on extraterrestrial phenomena, also hosted his own radio program, The Open Mind, in the 1980s. The program, which discussed declassified "Top Secret" government documents obtained through the Freedom Of Information Act, reached millions of listeners in the US and Europe. Sagadevan's writings - on world affairs, race relations, spirituality, and other subjects - have appeared in a variety of magazines and newspapers. He lives with his wife and teenage son in Southern California. His latest book, Warpaint of the Gods, addresses the most cogent issues of our times:

WHAT IS GOD’S RELIGION? Does God have a religion? If He does, what is it? If He does not - why do we humans have so many?
