The Immaterial Physical World



For centuries the prevailing western worldview has been built upon the materialistic, mechanical model of Isaac Newton - a clockwork Universe composed of separate particles of matter interacting according to precise physical laws and existing within objective dimensions of space and time.  This model has long succeeded in describing many facets of our multi-faceted reality, but increasingly since the revelations of Einstein and the paradigm-crushing implications of quantum physics, Newton’s world is quietly fading from view and being replaced by a more spiritual science.

Up until the present, biology and physics have been handmaidens of views espoused by Isaac Newton, the father of modern physics … These, at their essence, created a world view of separateness.  Newton described a material world in which individual particles of matter followed certain laws of motion through space and time – the universe as a machine … The Newtonian world might have been law-abiding, but ultimately it was a lonely, desolate place.  The world carried on, one vast gearbox, whether we were present or not … Our self-image grew even bleaker with the work of Charles Darwin.  His theory of evolution is of a life that is random, predatory, purposeless and solitary.  Be the best or don’t survive.  You are no more than an evolutionary accident … These paradigms – the world as a machine, man as survival machine – have led to a technological mastery of the universe, but little real knowledge of any central importance to us.  On a spiritual and metaphysical level, they have led to the most desperate and brutal sense of isolation.  They also have got us no closer to understanding the most fundamental mysteries of our own being:  how we think, how life begins, why we get ill, how a single cell turns into a fully formed person, and even what happens to human consciousness when we die.”  -Lynne McTaggart, “The Field: The Quest for the Secret Force of the Universe,” (XXIV-XXV)

Newton’s mechanistic, mathematical model is attractive with its law-abiding, predictable structure, but it repeatedly falls short in describing a wide array of phenomena which “classical physics” is thus forced to deny or ignore.  These include things such as consciousness, the observer effect, the measurement problem, Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle, nonlocality and quantum entanglement, particle/wave duality, bilocation, telepathy, psychokinesis, clairvoyance, precognition, out-of-body experiences, near-death experiences, ghosts, shamanic/spiritual healing, acupuncture, prayer, the placebo effect, psychoneuroimmunology and many more anomalies, all of which are at odds with classical physics and will be examined in the coming chapters.

The world view which was changed by the discoveries of modern physics had been based on Newton’s mechanical model of the universe. This model constituted the solid framework of classical physics. It was indeed a most formidable foundation supporting, like a mighty rock, all of science and providing a firm basis for natural philosophy for almost three centuries.  The stage of the Newtonian universe, on which all physical phenomena took place, was the three-dimensional space of classical Euclidean geometry. It was an absolute space, always at rest and unchangeable. In Newton’s own words, ‘Absolute space, in its own nature, without regard to anything external, remains always similar and immovable.’ All changes in the physical world were described in terms of a separate dimension, called time, which again was absolute, having no connection with the material world and flowing smoothly from the past through the present to the future. ‘Absolute, true, and mathematical time,’ said Newton, ‘of itself and by its own nature, flows uniformly, without regard to anything external.”  -Fritjof Capra, “The Tao of Physics” (55)

The first steps away from Newtonian physics came with Einstein’s theory of relativity showing Newton to be incorrect in his view of absolute space and absolute time.  Instead, both space and time have proven to be relativistic, interrelated concepts which are now more appropriately referred to as “space-time.”  As written by physicist Mendel Sachs, “The real revolution that came with Einstein’s theory . . . was the abandonment of the idea that the space-time coordinate system has objective significance as a separate physical entity. Instead of this idea, relativity theory implies that the space and time coordinates are only the elements of a language that is used by an observer to describe his environment.”  Einstein showed that space and time are not absolute structures with independent a priori existence as classical physics espouses.  In fact, space and time are relativistic and subjective, a notion which metaphysically places them subordinate to the mind/consciousness perceiving them!  The mystical implications of this discovery are vast and will be covered in detail later, but first let’s examine whether or not we even live in a “material” universe at all.  What has modern physics discovered about atoms, the so-called building blocks of matter?  

For two thousand years it was believed that atoms were tiny solid balls – a model clearly drawn from everyday experience. Then, as physicists discovered that atoms were composed of more elementary, sub-atomic particles (electrons, protons, neutrons and suchlike) the model shifted to one of a central nucleus surrounded by orbiting electrons – again a model based on experience.  An atom may be small, a mere billionth of an inch across, but these sub-atomic particles are a hundred thousand times smaller still. Imagine the nucleus of an atom magnified to the size of a grain of rice. The whole atom would then be the size of a football stadium, and the electrons would be other grains of rice flying round the stands. As the early twentieth-century British physicist Sir Arthur Eddington put it, ‘matter is mostly ghostly empty space’ – 99.9999999% empty space, to be a little more precise.”  -Peter Russell, “From Science to God”
 
How can something which is 99.9999999% empty space be considered the building block of matter?  And what is the fundamental “stuff” of the universe if not matter?  If there is almost no substance to our seemingly solid, tangible world, what causes the illusion?  German physicist Hans-Peter Dürr keenly noted, “Matter is not made of matter. So what is it made of? 

For a start, what we perceive to be 'physical' and 'solid' is anything but. Science says that what we see as 'form' - people, buildings, landscape etc. - are made of atoms. Okay, but the trouble with the 'solid world' theory is that atoms are not solid. More than that, they are basically empty. How can something that is not solid create a solid environment? It can't. Atoms consist of electrons orbiting a nucleus (protons and neutrons), but it is the proportions that tell the story. Atoms are more than 99%  empty space to our human reality, yet they are described as the fundamental building-blocks of matter - yes, 'solid' matter.” –David Icke, “The David Icke Guide to the Global Conspiracy” (34)

Examine each part of the cabin. The walls are made of wood. What makes wood what it is? A configuration of wood cells exists as a log, and each of these cells cannot exist without a configuration of molecules. Likewise, each molecule is composed of atoms. Each atom contains electrons, protons, and neutrons. Each atomic particle is composed of quarks, etc., etc., etc. Everything can be broken down into parts. Even if somehow a ‘thing’ was found that could not be broken down, it would still have parts because if it did not, it could not be used to make more complex things. Anything that has spatial extent requires that it has a front, a back, a shape – different parts.  At the level of atoms, the distance from one atom to another in relationship to the diameter of the nucleus of the atom is ‘astronomical.’ There is more emptiness in the atoms composing the wall of a cabin than there is matter! And this goes for all matter.  All matter is mostly emptiness … What prevents your hand, for example, from passing through a wall is not that there is some ‘thing’ or ‘things’ (atoms) in the way, but more so because there is an atomic energy field that prevents the atoms from one’s hand to pass by the atoms of the wall.” –Aaron G. L. Adoni, “The Gnosis of Kali Yuga” (137)

When touching a wall with your hand, both the wall and your hand are composed of 99.9999999% empty space, so your sensation of touching some “thing” comes not from physically colliding hand-atoms with wall-atoms, but rather from an energetic charge between them.  That energetic charge is then electro-chemically interpreted by your brain into your felt experience of “wall.” 

How can something that is not solid be the building blocks that construct this 'solid' wall I am looking at now? It can't - our brains do it.  With the emergence of quantum physics, science has had to concede that atoms are not solid … The atoms that comprise 'physical' matter are overwhelmingly 'empty' and even illustrations of this are misleading because there is not enough room in a book or science paper to accurately depict the proportions of particles to 'empty space'. As one writer put it: 'If an atom was the size of a cathedral, the nucleus would be about the size of a ten cent piece.’  The rest is ‘empty’ to the perception of the five senses because it consists of energy vibrating on wavelengths higher than the 'physical', and even the particles are found to be empty as you go deeper into the subatomic realm. If you magnify anything powerfully enough and go deeper than the atom, you will find that nothing has solidity - No, not even buildings, cars, mountains or the bones in your body. It's Illusion! If you find this hard to accept, think of your dreams. You dream in three-dimensional images and yet no one claims they are solid do they?” –David Icke, “Infinite Love is the Only Truth, Everything Else is Illusion” (40)

Quantum theory thus reveals an essential interconnectedness of the universe. It shows that we cannot decompose the world into independently existing smallest units. As we penetrate into matter, we find that it is made of particles, but these are not the ‘basic building blocks’ in the sense of Democritus and Newton. They are merely idealizations which are useful from a practical point of view, but have no fundamental significance.”  -Fritjof Capra, “The Tao of Physics” (137)

Nobel Prize winning physicist Niels Bohr was the inventor of the Bohr Atom Model seen in every high-school physics/chemistry textbook depicting the atom as a mini solar system with a central nucleus orbited by bands of electrons.  He created this model of the atom with which we are all so familiar, yet he himself knew the model was incorrect at a fundamental level.  He wrote that, Isolated material particles are abstractions, their properties being definable and observable only through their interaction with other systems.  In other words, no atom or sub-atomic particle has an isolated, separate existence.  No material particle has independent properties or location as distinct from any other.  At the atomic and subatomic levels, no “thing” is separate from every “thing” else – there is just One field of pulsating energy that composes the entire physical universe.  It has been called The Ether, The Field, The Quantum Field, The Zero-Point Field, and many other names, all referring to this essential, energetic Oneness.  So, not only was Newton’s classical physics incorrect about absolute space and time, it was incorrect about the universe being composed of separate particles of matter. 

This world of separate should have been laid waste once and for all by the discovery of quantum physics in the early part of the twentieth century.  As the pioneers of quantum physics peered into the very heart of matter, they were astounded by what they saw.  The tiniest bits of matter aren’t even matter, as we know it, not even a set something, but sometimes one thing, sometimes something quite different.  And even stranger, they are often many possible things all at the same time.  But most significantly, these subatomic particles have no meaning in isolation, but only in relationship with everything else.  At its most elemental, matter cannot be chopped up into self-contained little units, but is completely indivisible.  You can only understand the universe as a dynamic web of interconnection.  Things once in contact remain always in contact through all space and all time.  Indeed, time and space themselves appear to be arbitrary constructs, no longer applicable at this level of the world.  Time and space as we know them do not, in fact, exist.  All that appears, as far as the eye can see, is one long landscape of the here and now.”  -Lynne McTaggart, “The Field: The Quest for the Secret Force of the Universe,” (XXV)

Everyone knows Einstein’s famous formula E=MC2 meaning Energy = Mass x Light Speed squared.  What we’re seldom taught, however, are the implications of this equation.  E=MC2 shows that matter and energy are really just two different forms of the same thing.  Einstein’s formula and quantum physics have both verified that all matter is really just energy vibrating at a low frequency.  This means that energy, the One undifferentiated field of quantum zero-point energy, is the primary reality; So-called “empty” space, “solid” matter, and “separate” forms, are just subjective interpretations of the One underlying energy.  As Albert Einstein himself said, “We may therefore regard matter as being constituted by the regions of space in which the field is extremely intense … There is no place in this new kind of physics both for the field and matter, for the field is the only reality.”

The discovery that mass is nothing but a form of energy has forced us to modify our concept of a particle in an essential way. In modern physics, mass is no longer associated with a material substance, and hence particles are not seen as consisting of any basic ‘stuff’, but as bundles of energy.”  -Fritjof Capra, “The Tao of Physics” (202)

Experiments in quantum physics have shown that atoms and all subatomic particles are more like verbs than nouns.  They are more like energy bundles or patterns of quantum potential than they are like solid billiard balls or mini solar systems.  The underlying primary reality is the energy field, and “energy” itself is more a verb, an action, a potential, than a noun – it’s not some set “thing.”  When we peer deeply into the subatomic levels of matter, we see only this energy, this constantly flowing, interacting field.  To make sense of it we create nouns/models like atoms, electrons, quarks, but the most appropriate “model” would be a verb, like “universal energizing.” 

These dynamic patterns, or ‘energy bundles’, form the stable nuclear, atomic and molecular structures which build up matter and give it its macroscopic solid aspect, thus making us believe that it is made of some material substance. At the macroscopic level, this notion of substance is a useful approximation, but at the atomic level it no longer makes sense. Atoms consist of particles and these particles are not made of any material stuff. When we observe them, we never see any substance; what we observe are dynamic patterns continually changing into one another - a continuous dance of energy.”  -Fritjof Capra, “The Tao of Physics” (203)

Prior to Einstein’s theory of relativity and quantum physics we held a firm conviction that the universe was composed of solid matter.  We believed that the basic building blocks of this material universe were atoms, which we perceived as compact and indestructible.  The atoms existed in three-dimensional space and their movements followed certain fixed laws.  Accordingly, matter evolved in an orderly way, moving from the past, through the present, into the future.  Within this secure, deterministic viewpoint we saw the universe as a gigantic machine … Within this image of the universe developed by Newtonian science, life, consciousness, human beings, and creative intelligence were seen as accidental by-products that evolved from a dazzling array of matter.  As complex and fascinating as we might be, we humans were nevertheless seen as being essentially material objects – little more than highly developed animals or biological thinking machines.  Our boundaries were defined by the surface of our skin, and consciousness was seen as nothing more than the product of that thinking organ known as the brain.”  -Stanislav Grof, “The Holotropic Mind,” Harper, (4)

On a metaphysical level, the Newtonian worldview has instilled a common belief that all life, consciousness, and the diversity of nature are merely serendipitous accidents evolving out of complex interactions between particles of physical matter.  The idea that life, consciousness, and the complexity of nature arose by accident, for holistic thinkers, seems like a ludicrous improbability.  But for so-called logical, scientific thinkers, this worldview has long-standing merit.  Many are happy to accept that space, time, and matter all spontaneously came from nowhere for no reason; that a sneezing singularity expanded and evolved through trial and error and survival of the fittest over billions of years.  At some point, somehow, life and consciousness arose from non-living, unconscious matter, then continued gaining complexity through time until humanity, the pinnacle of billions of years of mechanical evolution, emerged with all these perceptions, sensations, emotions, and internal experiences just by accident.

Traditional science holds the belief that organic matter and life grew from the chemical ooze of the primeval ocean solely through the random interactions of atoms and molecules.  Similarly, it is argued that matter was organized into living cells, and cells into complex multicellular organisms with central nervous systems, solely by accident and ‘natural selection.’  And somehow, along with these explanations, the assumption that consciousness is a by-product of material processes occurring in the brain has become one of the most important metaphysical tenets of the Western worldview.  As modern science discovered the profound interactions between creative intelligence and all levels of reality, this simplistic image of the universe becomes increasingly untenable.  The probability that human consciousness and our infinitely complex universe could have come into existence through the random interactions of inert matter has aptly been compared to that of a tornado blowing through a junkyard and accidentally assembling a 747 jumbo jet.”  -Stanislav Grof, “The Holotropic Mind” (5)
 
Many processes certainly appear to be explainable in approximately mechanistic, reductionistic terms.  But as physicists have delved progressively deeper into the nature of reality, they find that it cannot be understood in mechanistic terms.  Mechanism assumes that there are separate objects that interact in determined, causal ways.  But that’s not the reality we live in.  Quantum reality is holistic, and as such any attempt to study its individual pieces will give an incomplete picture.  It’s like studying atoms inside an acorn in an attempt to understand the emergence of leaves on an oak tree – a futile exercise.”  -Dean Radin, “Entangled Minds” (222)

Eric Dubay Flat Earth Interviews



The Oddest Vegan Couple sits down for a friendly dinner with flat Earth researcher and author Eric Dubay.



In the following interview I sit down with Pablo Gabriel of the Spanish Perico Canta channel to discuss the state of the world, nutrition, well-being, activism, and of course Geocentrism.



Big thanks to Del, Gav, Elissa Hawke, and Eddie Bravo for this excellent, informative and humorous discussion about the current state and future of the Flat Earth community.



Freedom activist, comedian, and former People's Voice hostess Elissa Hawke sits down with IFERS President Eric Dubay to discuss dinosaurs, flat Earth, conspiracies, controlled opposition, and to address and clear-up several slanderous lies, accusations and rumors regarding Eric's background, family, and personal life.



Big thanks to Eddie Bravo, Kron Gracie, and the rest of the guys for this ground-breaking podcast where we expose the dinosaur hoax, the nuclear hoax, evolution, the big bang, controlled opposition, NASA, and the flat Earth conspiracy. The podcast starts at 1:25 and contains a few technical audio issues, but overall came out very well and is essential viewing for flat-Earthers and ballers alike! Please help like, comment, share, subscribe, download and re-upload to help spread the word.



In the following hangout with Del and the other guys from Beyond the Imaginary Curve, we discuss a variety of subjects including natural science, the law of perspective, spirituality, philosophy, veganism, martial arts, and of course the flat Earth.



Eric Dubay, Head of the International Flat Earth Research Society is interviewed by Sean Condon of Truth Seekers Farm about several subjects including the Holohoax, International Jewry, Adolf Hitler, Pizzagate, Psychopathy, and Flat Earth.



Thanks to Mel Fabregas of Veritas Radio for publicly releasing this second part of our important interview (normally reserved for subscribers only) where we delve into topics from the fake spinning ball Earth, to fake aliens, fake dinosaurs, fake ape-men, and evidence of real giant human beings covered up by the Masonic establishment.



Eric Dubay says the greatest lie and most successful cover-up in history, NASA and Freemasonry's biggest secret, is that we live on a plane, not a planet; that Earth is the flat, stationary center of the universe. Eric is an American living in Thailand where he teaches Yoga and Wing Chun part-time while exposing the New World Order full-time. He is the author of five books and is the president of the International Flat Earth Research Society. From Mel Fabregas: Let me begin this interview by stating that I have no attachment to the flat earth. I have no attachment to the oblate spheroid, and even to the sphere. If our home is any of these, so be it. I wouldn't be surprised of any. What I continue to be surprised and suspicious of are the people who continue attacking those who simply ask questions. I recently attended a conference that deals with the most open minded topics you could possibly imagine. However, when it comes to the flat earth topic, it was a no no. Look, I can't say I blame people for thinking this is the most absurd topic under the sun, or the firmament, rather, but you, open minded people who discuss aliens, UFOs, reptilians who rule the world, Bigfoot, and the rest of it, why do you continue telling people to stop looking into the flat earth? Those of you who study the pyramids and ancient civilizations, you venerate these ancient ones, and rightfully so, and some of these very ancient ones believed the earth was flat. Why do you then continue looking into their achievements if the notion of a flat earth is so absurd? Shouldn't that discredit them too? And those of you who continue writing to me saying the ancient ones knew they lived on a sphere, how did they know? Perhaps they had advanced technology that allowed seeing the skies above. Just because you see sphere above you doesn't prove you are standing on one. You can still play pool on a flat table and basketball on a flat court. Perhaps the psyop is questioning those who question the true shape of our plane(t).



Thanks to Evita Ochel of EBTV for the wonderful interview covering topics ranging from spirituality and science, to health and veganism, to conspiracies and the flat Earth. Please like, share, comment and subscribe to help me spread the word on these most important subjects!



Tonight Eric Dubay returns to the show. Eric is a leading and prominent voice behind the revival of the Flat Earth theory. He currently lives in Thailand where he teaches Yoga and Wing Chun which is the traditional Chinese martial art of self defense. Eric has also written a number of books one of which is The Flat Earth Conspiracy where Eric explains how the world has been systematically brainwashed and indoctrinated for centuries into believing the greatest lie of all time – that the Earth is a spinning globe. He has also recently released his free eBook “200 Proofs Earth is Not a Spinning Ball”. The discussion with Eric was wide ranging as we talk about the traction the Flat Earth theory is gaining throughout the world along with Eric’s thoughts on Zionism, controlled opposition, psychopathic behavior and forbidden topics like the Holocaust.



Continuing my discussion with Mel Fabregas of Veritas Radio, we discuss subjects ranging from the Sun, Moon, and stars, UFOs, aliens, and DMT, Jews, Hitler and WWII, and of course, the flat Earth. If you missed part one be sure to watch this first: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5yRAQG5-ca8 And special thanks to Steve Wilner for the awesome psychedelic visuals: https://www.youtube.com/user/soundlessdawn



Join me and Mel Fabregas of Veritas Radio for a discussion about the greatest deception in history, the mother of all conspiracies, NASA and Freemasonry's biggest secret, that Earth is flat, motionless, and the center of the universe. Stay tuned for part 2 coming out next week, or better yet show Mel your support and subscribe to Veritas radio to listen today.



In this Firestarter radio re-upload we cover the Flat Earth, NASA, Freemasonry, Judaism, Veganism, Kosher Slaughter, Circumcision, Hitler, the Holocaust Hoax, Controlled Opposition, who really runs the world and why they have convinced you you are living on a spinning ball!



In the following re-upload, Patricia Aiken from Sacred Cow BBQ and I discuss the Flat Earth, WWII, Hitler, Gaddafi, Rothschild / Jewish power, Controlled Opposition, and Voluntaryism.



In this roundtable discussion with John Le Bon and the Ball Earth Skeptics we cover topics ranging from shills in the flat Earth movement to astrotheology and kundalini awakening.



Tonight my very special guest is Eric Dubay. Eric is one of the leading voices behind the revival of the Flat Earth theory. He currently lives in Thailand where he teaches Yoga and Wing Chun which is the traditional Chinese martial art of self defense. Eric has also written a number of books one of which is The Flat Earth Conspiracy where Eric explains how the world has been systematically brainwashed and indoctrinated for centuries into believing the greatest lie of all time – that the Earth is a spinning globe. Our discussion was wide ranging as we talk through many of the proof points supporting the Flat Earth model as well addressing some the arguments used by heliocentrists, or the globe believers, in their attempts to debunk the flat Earth theory. I strongly urge everyone to listen with an open and critical mind. I believe you’ll find the topic extremely interesting and not as cut and dry as you might think.



Coast 2 Coast AM regular stand-in and host of Zoomer radio's Conspiracy Show, Richard Syrett, interviews Eric Dubay, president of the International Flat Earth Research Society about the greatest lie and most successful cover-up in history, NASA and Freemasonry's biggest secret, that we live on a plane, not a planet, that Earth is the flat, stationary center of the universe.



In this episode of The Anarchast I speak with Jeff Berwick about Statism, Anarchy/Voluntaryism and of course, the Flat Earth! Please be sure to share, like, and subscribe for more interviews and flat Earth research. Also check out my Anarchy article archive at Atlantean Conspiracy: http://www.atlanteanconspiracy.com/search/label/Anarchy



The oldest and largest secret society in existence has a secret so huge and well-hidden, so contrary to what we have been taught to believe, that its exposure threatens to not only completely and single-handedly crush their New World Order "United Nations" but to radically reshape the entirety of modern academia, universities, the mainstream / alternative medias, all the world's governments, space agencies, and the very Earth beneath our feet.



In this highly-informative and humorous podcast President of the International Flat Earth Research Society and webmaster of AtlanteanConspiracy.com, Eric Dubay, talks with fellow conspiracy author and webmaster of WaykiWayki.com, Mark Knight. Topics covered include flat Earth science vs. ball Earth pseudo-science, the various proofs/evidence for the geocentric flat Earth and debunking the supposed proofs/evidence for the heliocentric ball-Earth, the North Pole and South Pole (or lack thereof) and the Antarctic ice-rim, the Sun, Moon, eclipses, seasons, Polaris, stars, planets, NASA, the fake Moon and Mars landings, the controlled opposition Flat Earth Society vs. the legitimate International Flat Earth Research Society, and disinformation agents like Mark Sargent (codename: Sargent Non-Sense).



The following interview features myself, Eric Dubay, a genuine, legitimate flat Earth researcher talking with DJ Buttamilk (Dan Lefkowitz) of Brattleboro, Vermont community radio.

The Flat Earth Conspiracy Audiobook



Wolves in sheep’s clothing have pulled the wool over our eyes. For almost 500 years, the masses have been thoroughly deceived by a cosmic fairy-tale of astronomical proportions. We have been taught a falsehood so gigantic and diabolical that it has blinded us from our own experience and common sense, from seeing the world and the universe as they truly are. Through pseudo-science books and programs, mass media and public education, universities and government propaganda, the world has been systematically brain-washed, slowly indoctrinated over centuries into the unquestioning belief of the greatest lie of all time.

To read or purchase a copy of The Flat Earth Conspiracy, you can order direct from the publisher Lulu, or from Amazon:

The Manipulation of Time



Another subtle yet devastating aspect of the global conspiracy is their manipulation of calendars, clocks, and our perception of time. We are being enslaved by man-made mechanisms and systems for keeping time. Not only are we wage-slaves to bankers, governments, bosses, and land-owners, but we are also time-slaves to our watches, clocks, and calendars. We slave to 9-5 school and work days. We slave to 5-day school and work weeks. We are spiritual slaves to Greenwich Mean Time, the Gregorian calendar, and an unnatural 7-day week.

“Time is the primary socializing tool and the clock is the key machine of industrial capitalism. The imperialism of space and material is everywhere evident, but the imperialism of time is a shadowy beast. What is of direct concern is how time is perceived, controlled, exploited, manipulated, institutionalized, and internalized. If we do not understand time, we become its victims. One thing remains apparent: time politics are power politics. Every sundial, water mill, calendar, week cycle, social policy, and temporal monument has served a particular interest and ideology. The hallmark of these, of course, has always been technological power and chauvinist control. In the service of precision, the atomic second is now defined as the duration of 9,192,631,770 particle oscillations within a cesium -133 atom.” -Buried Inside, Chronoclast (Introduction to Album)
 
If you follow the sun and moon to keep track of time instead of clocks and watches, many things change. If stores open at sun-up and close at sun-down, managers cannot anally enforce punching time cards. If you tell your friends to meet you at the river when the sun touches the tree line, you naturally, patiently wait for them while watching a beautiful sunset. If you tell your friends to meet you at the mall at 7:30pm, then you must constantly look at your wrist or the wall watching a series of cumulatively frustrating numbers.

“That [people] can be characterized as wound up, run down, rusty, or going like clockwork is essentially a product of seventeenth-century thought. It implies not only that their work may be accurately measured, but also that their motions can be studied. Given proper incentives, they will follow predetermined and appropriately mechanical patterns” -Samuel L. Macy, “The Dynamics of Progress: Time, Method, and Measure”

When indoctrinated into meaningless calendars (like the Gregorian and Julian), wrist-watches, 9-5 work days, and 5 day work weeks, people most certainly do follow predetermined, mathematically calculable patterns and tendencies. We like to have a drink after work, we like to watch a movie at the weekend, we like coffee in the mornings, we buy flowers on Valentine’s Day and so on, our tendencies can be calculated and exploited by elites. Those who exist outside the constraints of time/wage slavery have all the time and money they need perform studies, hire psychologists, lobbyists, and advertisers to further their gains. Time is money, so they say.

“In hierarchical time culture, status is often delineated in terms of how valuable a person’s time is. The time poor are made to wait, while the temporally privileged are waited upon.” -Jeremy Rifkin, “Time Wars”

“Gets us back to the theme of time is money. No wonder time is money is ingrained into our consciousness and culture. And that seems to be the main purpose of the calendar we use. To keep track of our accounts, pay our bills, and set up our appointments. We might not think about it this way, but the calendar we use programs us to use it the way we do. But are all calendars like this one, nothing more than an arbitrary program to take care of business? What about the sun, the moon and the stars? OK. Let’s keep this one point in mind. A calendar is a programming device. It programs the culture, the people, the society that uses it. It creates a feedback loop between the mind of the user and its program. The nature of the calendar determines the nature of the society.” -Jose Arguelles “Stopping Time” (15)

“Secured at birth and bred as fresh livestock. To the power brokers of hyper-capitalism, our lives are on the auction block. Make way for the experience economy, make way for the access economy, make way for the new time-currency, welcome it all like the coming of Rome.” -Buried Inside, Chronoclast (IX Time as Commodity)


Karl Marx wrote in “Das Kapital” that, “To work at a machine, the workman should be taught form childhood in order that he may learn to adapt his own movements to the uniform and unceasing motion of an automaton.” This statement has been implemented into our government and corporate institutions in many ways. Students align themselves with the (approximate) 9-5, 8 hour work day, 5 days a week. We take this coincidence for granted or explain it away by the convenience of aligning work and school schedules for day-care purposes. But in reality what it instills is this psychological mechanism of slavishly submitting to the regulated schedules of employers. Also the factory-like seating and positioning of a boss at the blackboard giving out standardized directives is a product of the industrial age. Without this long-term conditioning from a young age would we so willingly sell our lives for minimum wage?

“We are making the transition into what economists call an experience economy – a world in which each person’s own life becomes, in effect, a commercial market. In business circles, the new operative term is the lifetime value of the customer, the theoretical measure of how much a human being is worth if every moment of his or her life were to be commodified in one form or another in the commercial sphere.” -Jeremy Rifkin, “The Age of Access”

Time has been broken down for us in many ways, some of which make sense and others which seem senseless. Many delineations of time have astronomical significance which seems sensible. The Sun and Earth’s interaction gives us a yearly cycle, the Moon’s lunation pattern give us a monthly cycle, the constant rising and falling of Sun and Moon gives us a daily cycle, and the Moon’s affect on tides gives us a natural quarter day cycle as the tides come in and out. All other delineations of time, however, are arbitrary and man-made. The fast-ticking “second” appears nowhere in nature, except when people claim it resembles human heartbeat, but this too is arbitrary because human heartbeat constantly changes pace. The “minute” named after Min, the Moon is also an invented cycle with no actual parallel in nature. The “hour” named after Horus, the Egyptian Jesus, who divides the days and nights into 12 equal parts, is an ancient myth, but not a cycle found in nature. The worst and most spiritually enslaving of the created cycles, however, is undoubtedly the “week.” Because of this ludicrous unnatural cycle, almost everyone in the world, no matter what their life was like the past 7 days, ends up being almost exactly the same the next 7 days! Every 7 times the Sun rises and falls most of the world’s population hits the “replay” button on their life and continues repeating the same pattern/schedule like a skipping record for their entire existence. The worst part is that we have been so indoctrinated into the week (weak) system that every little facet of modern society from schools, to paychecks, to TV programs, are irreversibly locked in.

“‘Blue Monday, how I hate blue Monday,’ is how the old Fats Domino song began. Why is that? Because, of course, that is the first day of the five day work week. Fats Domino must have had some clue about time killing us, otherwise it wouldn’t have to be blue Monday. So Monday through Friday, for most employed people, as well as schools and public and government institutions, is the work week. Then comes Saturday and Sunday, the week end. The work week is ruled by the clock, which is why it is also referred to as 9 to 5. So Saturday and Sunday should be soul time. But is it? Well a little bit. There is Sunday church, maybe an hour or so for the soul. Or maybe Saturday synagogue. But what is it really about, these weekends? It’s about killing more time. It’s sports and entertainment. It’s football, and basketball and baseball. Big time. If you are in the rest of the world it’s soccer. Very big time. If it weren’t for television, this stuff wouldn’t be so big. But it all goes hand in hand. Television, the week end, and big time sports. It is all a part of the same thing. I know, maybe you don’t do that . Maybe you do something else. You go skiing or windsurfing. Maybe you go to the movies. Or you go dancing, or maybe gambling down at the casino. Or you watch the Discovery channel. Or you take a self-help workshop. It doesn’t matter, because, then it is going to be Monday again and the whole sequence repeats. The point is your whole show, the time of your life, does reduce down to this weekly pattern. And it is killing you. You are putting your soul in a seven-day strait jacket. When the soul suffocates you only get more bored and need more distractions. Do you see what’s going on? You are hardly even alive. Because it’s your soul that really lives, and if you are not giving your soul the time it needs, then time is killing you. That means the time of the calendar and the clock that is embedded in your mind. But you are now becoming aware of it. That is a great first step. You can now say ‘I admit that I was powerless over the time I have blindly accepted all of my life.’” -Jose Arguelles, “Stopping Time” (10)

One ancient secret society symbol often found on clocks and watches is the Anchor. The shape of a typical ship’s anchor is actually two Egyptian hieroglyphs put together. The top part of the anchor is shaped like a cross with a circle at the top, is the Egyptian “ankh” hence the name “anch-or.” The bottom is shaped like the Egyptian boats of the dead which carried souls during the afterlife. Two words are often written under the anchor symbol on clocks as well – “King Time” – likely signifying the Royal/Brotherhood manipulation of time.

The calendar year is an imperial narrative. The seven-day week is an imperial infliction. Circannual holidays are imperial flag-posts. Mechanical time is an imperial installation. The merchant workday is an imperial offering. Greenwich Mean Time is an imperial sanction.” -Buried Inside, Chronoclast (V. Time as Imperialism)

The word "calendar" comes from the Roman/Latin, "calends,” which was the name of the account book, the book recording monthly debts and bills to be paid. The first day of each month in the early Christian “Julian” calendar was called “calends” and that was when you had to pay your bills and debts. A quick look at the calendar will present some oddities even to the casual observer. September means seven, but is the ninth month; October means eight but is the tenth month and so on. March is named for Mars, the Roman God of War, and July and August are named after Roman Emperors Julius and Augustus Caesar. The calendar we use is called the “Gregorian” after Pope Gregory XIII.

Yes, before it was known as the Gregorian calendar, it was called the Julian - after Julius himself. Turns out the Romans had a very faulty calendar of only ten months. And Julius, wanting a way to make a permanent change from republic to empire, with himself as the first emperor, decided to change the calendar. So to make the change during the year 46-45 BC, Julius had to have a year 445 days long. Understandably that was known as the ‘year of confusion.’ Julius didn’t live beyond the ‘ides of March’ of the year 45 BC when he was assassinated for what he had done. But the empire prevailed. Julius was followed by Augustus Caesar who made a further change in the calendar. He saw that Julius had changed the name of the month ‘Quintilius’ to Julius (July), so Augustus changed the next month ‘Sextilius’ to Augustus (August). Not only that, Sextilius only had 30 days, while Julius had 31 days. Augustus wanted to make his renamed month, August, as long as Julius’ month. So what did he do? He took the 29th day off February, already the shortest month, and added it to his month. That is why August, like July has 31 days, and February only 28. So that is how the calendar began. Despotic motives, imperial pretensions and confusion. The Christians began using the Julian calendar around 321 AD, when they added the seven day week to it. The seven day week was borrowed from the Hebrew lunar calendar. The Jews borrowed the seven day week from the Babylonians. The seven day week never correlates perfectly any of the months except when February 1 might fall on a Sunday, then there will be four perfect seven day weeks in one month.” -Jose Arguelles, “Stopping Time” (17)

The Moon goes around the Earth 13 times in one year. 13 x 28 = 364 +1 day equals 365 days, one solar year. The ancients all used 13-Moon, 28-day calendars and celebrated the extra day (always on July 25th) as the “day out of time,” when the rising great star Sirius peaks. The Druids, Incans, Mayans, Egyptians, Polynesians, Lakota and many other cultures all used 28-day Moon calendars.

"The native peoples of the world who still live by Moon time are far more in tune with nature because they are operating on the same time-energy flow as nature. They are in sync with it. But in 1572 Pope Gregory announced that a new calendar was to be introduced, the Gregorian Calendar, and it was implemented in October 1582. It was another Brotherhood scam and the Gregorian Calendar became the fixed standard time for the planet. This means that the human mind is tuned to this manufactured flow of ‘time’ when we look at a clock, a watch, or plan the future with a diary And where is the centre of this time system, the zero point from which all the world’s people tune their timepieces? Why, it’s only Greenwich in London, across the River Thames from the City of London financial district, the Brotherhood’s operational heartland! And what was the inspiration for the Gregorian Calendar? The one used in … Babylon … The Gregorian Calendar is a farce. It is the time equivalent of throwing all your clothes in a wardrobe and leaning against the door to stop it flinging open. The clothes may just about fit in the space if you push them in hard enough, but what a mess. Here we have a 12 month year of 60 minute hours and 24 hour days with the months so ill-fitting that some are 30 days, others 31, another 28, or 29 every four years. Yes, fits like a glove. But a sensible measurement of time was not the motivation. Disconnecting human consciousness from Moon time was the idea and the Gregorian Calendar removed the 13th Moon. There should be 13 Moon-cycle months of 28 days, but instead we have 12 months and 12 Moon cycles. The Brotherhood hierarchy still operates their calendars to Moon time - another reason for their obsession with 13” -David Icke, “The Biggest Secret” (471-2)

“On the Gregorian phonograph record, January 1 is part of the program. What plays on January 1? Well in this country a lot of football ‘bowl games.’ Then at the end of January sometime, you never know exactly when, it is the Super Bowl. February programs you for Valentine’s day and President’s day. July for July 4. October for Halloween. December for Christmas and New Year’s eve. And so on. Now September 11 - 9-11 - is part of the program, too. These are just some of the more obvious examples of how that phonograph record plays during one spin - a year. Every time one of those dates draws close, whole segments’ of the population respond in pre-established ways. There are a lot more programs the calendar plays. The beginnings and endings of wars. Veteran’s day. Memorial day. April fools. Tax day. Labor day. The memories of all of these events are accumulated according to the dates in which they occur. Then everyone has personal dates that trigger their emotions and memories, too. Like the day you were born. Or the day your son died. Or when you got married … The Gregorian calendar is arbitrary and irregular. You would hardly ever think about any natural factors by using this calendar. January 1 doesn’t correspond to any solstice or equinox or anything natural at all. With a program like that, of course you wouldn’t think of the seasons or the moon when you use this calendar. It is almost as if this calendar is meant to keep you out of phase with nature … It is easy to overlook an unequal or irregular measure in time because we can’t touch or see time. But would we overlook such an uneven standard in a yardstick or ruler? And if we were to go ahead and try to make or build things with an uneven ruler, wouldn’t they come out crooked or sloppy? Maybe after awhile we would say, ‘Oh that’s all right we’ve lowered our standard to accommodate these sloppy constructions. You’ll get used to it. We’ve always done it this way.’ But would you really settle for substandard measures of objects and forms in space? Yet we put up with substandard and uneven measures in time. Thinking it doesn’t matter may already be an effect of accepting so long the uneven measure. If space affects our senses, time affects our mind. Therefore the effects of a crooked time on the mind may be far more subtle, yet far worse than the effects of a crooked space on the senses. We could all develop a crooked mind without even knowing it. Wouldn’t a crooked mind see the world in a crooked way and create problems for itself without knowing it? Not only that, but we would then think all of our problems come from some place outside of ourselves. We would always be looking for the problems out there some place.” -Jose Arguelles, “Stopping Time” (16)

“Did you know that the Gregorian calendar repeats its program precisely every 28 years? In any 28 year slice, there will always be exactly seven leap days/years. That means there are large 28 year Gregorian recordings that are playing beneath the surface of events. A significant determining point will be a good place to begin to look at these 28 year cycles and see how they are programming us. What is a significant determining point? How about the atomic bomb in 1945? Didn’t that change everything? It most certainly did. Or how about the 9-11 in 2001? So let’s count in 28 year cycles after 1945 and see what happens. First 28 years, 1973 - now here’s something: April 4, 1973, the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City were dedicated. 28 years later? 2001. 9-11. No more Twin Towers. Twin events like Hiroshima and Nagasaki, two 28 year cycles earlier. How about 28 years before 1945? 1917. America enters World War I. 1945, America ends World War II. Are we, after the 9-11, starting World War III? 28 years before 1917, 1889. Hmm. The Eiffel Tower, world’s tallest structure in its time, three 28 year cycles before the Twin Towers. Do you see how the calendar repeats its programs? Do you really want another 28 years of this program?” -Jose Arguelles, “Stopping Time” (18)

The female essence has long been associated with the Moon in large part because of women’s 28-day menstruation cycle. The measure of the Moon from new Moon to new Moon is called the synodic cycle and is 29.5 days in length. However the sidereal lunar cycle which measures the Moon from where it reappears in the same place in the sky is only 27.1 days in length. So 28 days, already encoded into women’s biological cycles, is the average lunar cycle. This is not coincidence either, proven by “luminescent ovulation cycle adjustment,” the patented process whereby using on sleeping women a series of lights mirroring light cycles of the Moon their ovulation cycles change (Patent 6497718). Ovulation is about 14 days (half cycle) before Menstruation. So in ancient times women the entire world over would usually have menstruation aligned with the new Moon and ovulation aligned with the full Moon. It has been shown that 20% more people are admitted into hospitals and mental health facilities during full Moons. Could humans be sexually frustrated due to unnatural misalignments in women’s biological cycles? Is this why lonely dogs howl for companionship during the full Moon? Ancient societies would often hold mon-thly fertility cere-mon-ies in honor of the Moon/femininity but nowadays those who worship the Moon/Lunar cycles are called luna-tics, mon-sters and nuts. Those who measure time by the Sun/solar calendars find sol-ace. The etymology again points towards our “illumined” ma-sters and their Sun worship.

Most girls feel embarrassed or at least inconvenienced by their onset of womanhood. First periods are accompanied by tampons, pads, teasing schoolboys and warnings or horror stories from other older women. Zaire tribes’ people, Native Americans, and other “primitive” cultures honor their women’s first periods with puberty ceremonies. They believe each woman has incredible powers as a spiritual being and the gift of life is an important event. During her first period each girl is isolated from the tribe and taken by female relatives and friends to a special “Moon hut” to be taught about sexuality and childbearing. She is taught arts and crafts, stories are shared and wisdom is passed down. After her period of isolation she is welcomed back with a big feast in her honor. In the ancient world it was believed that women had amazing powers of healing and creativity during menstruation so they should not be wasted on everyday tasks. Menstruation was a time women spent meditating and spiritual searching.

The ancient Mayan calendar is slightly even more accurate than the Gregorian calendar we use today. They calculated the moon’s orbit of the Earth incredibly precisely (29.528395 days to our current 29.530588 day measurement). They could accurately predict solar and lunar eclipses and had amazing knowledge of astrology and the stars. Archeologist Eric Thompson asks, “What mental quirks led the Maya intelligentsia to chart the heavens, yet fail to grasp the principle of the wheel; to visualize eternity, as no other semi-civilized people has ever done, yet ignore the short step from corbelled to true arch; to count in millions, yet never to learn to weigh a sack of corn?”

The Mayan calendar measures cycles of expanding consciousness and completing one’s purposes in life. Gauging the passing days like this changes the way one thinks of life. Modern societies tend to see time as a ticking time bomb till they die, a clockwork of standardized gears cranking until they get older, rusty, useless and stop turning. The Mayans, like early Christians, believed in reincarnation which fits with their calendar. They believed all of life was a spiritual evolution and an expanding of consciousness/purpose so each day correlates as such. For instance, as I write this, today is the second day of the new “Jaguar Moon of Intention” (each Moon has a spirit animal and purpose). Today’s Tzolkien is “Skywalker” the 13th, which means “Explore Space, Wakefulness, the Aspiration to Unite Heaven and Earth.” Today’s Power is “Activation, today’s Action is “Bonding”, and today’s Essence is “Service.” Each day also has a color, a chakra, and a symbol as well. Now, this may sound odd or appear as some new age foolishness, but this is a method of time keeping used all over the ancient world.

To associate the nature of time with the evolution of consciousness seems to me a much evolved outlook. The Maya knew about the 25,920 year precession of the equinoxes in which the Earth wobbles slightly for 2160 years past each constellation of the zodiac. They even perfectly calculated the end date of this precession as December 21st, 2012 when we will be passing through galactic center which they referred to as the Dark Rift.

“The Christians set sail westward and ‘discovered’ the New World. In a place called Yucatan, they discovered another people, the Maya. These Mayans also had a calendar, ‘a heathen’ device that was more accurate than the Julian calendar! The Christians learned from the Mayan calendar, that their calendar was ten days off! What to do? The Christians burned all of the Mayan books in 1562. Interestingly enough, ten years later in 1572, there was a new pope. He named himself Gregory XIII and declared that his first act as pope would be to correct the Julian calendar. Ten years later, 1582. Pope Gregory XIII had achieved his aim. If you went to bed on the evening of October 5, 1582, when you woke up it was October 16 - and not October 6. Pope Gregory XIII had made up for this ten days and the Julian calendar was now known as the Gregorian.” -Jose Arguelles, “Stopping Time” (18)
