Why I Walk Barefoot – An Unordinary School Empowering Women To Power The World

Published

on

In a quiet classroom forty empty chairs await their students. A blackboard, dusty with chalk, takes up one wall; directly opposite a world map flutters in the dry desert breeze from an open window. Sunlight streams in from the doorframe, as the students begin to take their places around a long trestle table.

This is not your everyday classroom. And these are not your everyday students.

This is The Barefoot College, an NGO which aims to empower rural communities to become sustainable and self-sufficient by creating Rural Solar Engineers.

Solar Engineering Class of 2015 / 11 countries, 36 women.

The Purpose

To return home and illuminate their own villages!

Without renewable energy the poorest populations must plunder limited resources to provide a single flame of light for their families. Many nights, they are left in the dark without the ability to capitalize on hours after sunset. This means that because most developing regions work during the day, adults and children alike lose out on opportunities at night for education, recreation or development.

Most of the women in class concentrate on their work for the day (today they’re soldering circuit boards) but on my visit Lucy, from Cameroon, smiles and leans forward to shake my hand. Sitting at the head of the table nearby is Maria, a Solar Mama from Bolivia. Her story is one of pure inspiration – she travelled alone for 2000 miles on her first trip away from her family of ten children and two grandchildren. Now she shares a dorm with two Ecuadorian Mamas, Patricia & Estella, who look up to her as their own mother figure – “We could not do this without her” they say.

The notion that grandmothers, with no prior engineering skills (and very limited formal education), can electrify whole villages seems, at first, untenable. But after five minutes in this diverse classroom I can’t imagine a more simple and compelling idea. Barefoot College gives these women the opportunity to escape the dogmas of their previous societies and live more freely. Allowing them the space and time to find their true potential.

“Anyone, regardless of gender, caste or age, can become empowered to learn new skills.” – Gordhan, Solar Trainer

The Method

“Learning by doing. Doing by learning.” – The Barefoot College Way

From South Sudan to Myanmar, Togo to Panama, from 68 different countries around the world “Solar Mamas” (as they are affectionately known) have been chosen by their communities, given their first passport and leave their homes and families behind for the first time in their lives to begin a transformative journey in rural Rajasthan, India, where the Barefoot College Campus is based.

The students? Illiterate grandmothers from non-electrified villages around the world, training to become Solar Engineers.

How do they learn? Incredibly, because none of the Mamas can read or speak a common language, all teaching is done through symbols, photographs, sign language and repeated practice for six months. Barefoot College demands that a lack of formal education should not stop these women from unleashing their true potential!

Lucy Ndip, Solar Mama from Cameroon has 8 children and completed 6th grade schooling.

My first visit to the Solar Training Centre was an awe-inspiring one. Greeted by a cacophony of noise, the Solar Mamas rang out welcomes in ten different languages – “Hola!” “Namaste!” “Maayong Buntag!” “Bonjour!” “Habari!” Their ambition fills the room with an air that gives me strength.

Since its inception in 2008, graduates of the Solar Engineering programme have electrified 1015 villages in 68 countries, changing the lives of 500,000 villagers. Using the practical skills gained at Barefoot, the Solar Mamas can light homes, schools and hospitals, and will maintain and repair lamps and panels for up to five years. However, the Solar Mama’s journey does not end solely with the acquisition of practical skills and techniques.

While on campus the women absorb each other’s diversity, grow in confidence and realize their potential as leaders within their own communities. When returning home they spread the necessity of female empowerment, the harnessing of traditional knowledge and rural techniques, and the goal of equal education for all.

Perhaps the most important aspect of the Barefoot College programme is not only that women learn to electrify their villages. But that the Solar Mamas who graduate become shining beacons of lights themselves, going on to further inspire and empower a new generation of women with no limitations.

Togolese Solar Mamas teach women from other villages how to become Solar Engineers, spreading light both spiritually & physically. (Photojournalist: Lar Bolands)

As a new visitor to Barefoot College, I am overwhelmed and inspired by the determination of each of the Solar Mamas. By taking the astounding step to leave their communities and learn a completely new trade, they prove that it is not certificates, grades or job titles that count. Instead, what truly matters is having the courage to make a change, create new solutions and affect the world positively.

How Yahoo Hacked 3 Billion User Accounts & Caused A Global Health Hazard

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Yahoo holds the 3 time record for the largest cybersecurity breaches in history and is the first confirmed company to willingly agree to let the U.S. government scan and collect information from all users.

  • Reflect On:

    The potential stress that Yahoo and any big email service causes users by deliberately leaving personal data open to infiltration and why they don't implement encryption.

The cyber attacks on Yahoo occurred back in 2013 and 2014, but Yahoo first informed the public of these attacks in 2016 and 2017. All of their 3 billion users were affected, some of whom on two occasions, but in between these announcements, another revelation occurred. Incoming emails from all 3 billion Yahoo users’ accounts were also systematically scanned by the U.S. government in 2015. This time with Yahoo’s cooperation.

According to the World Health Organization:

“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

The potential stress Yahoo may have caused any number of their 3 billion users around the world, as well as any number of non-Yahoo users who sent emails to Yahoo users, makes them a global public health hazard, but the mainstream narrative focused on Verizon consequently paying less to buy Yahoo, and CEO Marissa Mayer having to forfeit her annual bonus and stock award.

Yahoo announces the largest user data breach in history

Sept 2016 and Yahoo announced that “at least 500 million user accounts” had been hacked in 2014. Having retrieved names, email addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth, passwords and security questions and answers, it was hailed by the media as one of the largest cybersecurity breaches of all time. The company said they believed a “state-sponsored actor” was behind the data breach, meaning an individual acting on behalf of a foreign government.

Yahoo collaborates with U.S. government to spy on user emails

October 2016 and Reuters revealed that Yahoo users once again were having their emails accessed without their knowledge. This time by the U.S. government. The FBI and the National Security Agency (NSA) approached Yahoo to build a custom software program to read all of their users’ incoming emails. The program was in operation by May 2015 and was designed to search for a specific string or digital ‘signature’. This could be a phrase in an email or an attachment. When that ‘signature’ was found, that email or attachment was then copied and sent to the relevant U.S. intelligence agency server.

The program spied on every person who emailed a Yahoo! Mail account, implying every Yahoo! Mail user is guilty and violating the privacy of people around the world. Both Reuters and The New York Times stated that this is the first known case of a U.S. internet company agreeing to the systemic scanning of all arriving messages and real-time data collection at an intelligence agency’s request, as well as the first known time that a new program was created to do so.

Yahoo did not need to cooperate

The NSA and FBI used FISA to justify the global top-secret mass surveillance programs tracking foreign nationals and U.S. citizens revealed by Edward Snowdon in 2013; yet these programs remain unconstitutional – which means illegal. FISA, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, can allow the secret national security court to issue an edict, but a specific target should be identified, and section 702 of FISA exclusively applies to agents of a foreign power located outside the USA.

“This is another example of how the government is pushing secretly novel or innovative interpretations of surveillance law” to conduct wiretapping in broader ways than the public realize, said Jennifer Granick, the director of civil liberties at the Stanford Law School Center for Internet and Society.

“It is deeply disappointing that Yahoo declined to challenge this sweeping surveillance order, because customers are counting on technology companies to stand up to novel spying demands in court” Patrick Toomey, an attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union, said in a statement.

Yahoo announces the (2nd) largest user data breach in history

Two months later, in December 2016, Yahoo announced they had discovered another major cyberattack had taken place in 2013. The Guardian explained that this second “state-sponsored” attack had affected more than 1 billion user accounts, making this one the “biggest data breach in history.”

Yahoo announces the (3rd) largest user data breach in history

October 2017 and Yahoo revealed that every one of their 3 billion accounts had been affected by the 2013 data theft, making this new number “the largest breach in history.”

This means that every Yahoo user’s account information was retrieved, and that means all of their services could have been accessed, including Yahoo! Mail, Yahoo! Groups, Flickr and Tumblr.

Although Yahoo claims neither of these attacks breached the system where user payment card and bank account details are stored, any private details found in every Yahoo user’s personal emails could have been collected.

“For years I have been urging friends and family to migrate off of Yahoo email, mainly because I watched for years as the company appeared to fall far behind its peers in blocking spam and other email-based attacks” states security researcher Brian Krebs.

Yahoo is responsible for jeopardizing their own users’ safety

March 2017 and Yahoo! disclosed the results of an internal investigation which found that CEO Marissa Mayer had reacted too slowly, other executives had “failed to act sufficiently” and the companies legal department had also been negligent. It was revealed that the company’s security team had identified that a hacker had accessed at least 500 million user accounts back in 2014, yet Yahoo chose to notify only 26 users.

In October 2017, when Yahoo announced that all 3 billion of their users were hacked in 2013, the company said they will begin alerting accounts. They also stated that “in connection with Yahoo’s December 2016 announcement of the August 2013 theft, Yahoo took action to protect all accounts.” The action that they took was to ask 1 billion of 3 billion affected users to change their passwords. This does not protect users from being hacked. All users had passwords before.

The Takeaway

The revelation that all 3 billion Yahoo users had been hacked by an alleged “state-sponsor actor” caused media outrage, two FBI investigations, and some 43 consumer class-action lawsuits against the company. The revelation that all 3 billion Yahoo users’ emails have also been unknowingly scanned systemically by the U.S. government warrants a similar reaction.

Yahoo’s cooperation was not necessary. The company could have contested the request to create a custom software program to spy on their own customers in court. Instead, Yahoo users were not only spied on in 2013 and 2014, but again in 2015, and all of their users were not informed until 2017, leaving the safety of millions then billions of users at jeopardy.

In 2018, Yahoo still state in their Privacy Policy that “Once you register with Yahoo and sign in to our services, you are no longer anonymous.” The only way any big email service like Yahoo! Mail, Gmail or Apple Mail can successfully protect your personal data and online privacy as an internet user is by encryption as standard.

The only reason big companies do not want to do this is because they want to have access to your personal information. The solution is simple. Choose a different narrative to the ongoing infiltration of your personal and private information.

Cybersecurity is available to everyone, and it starts with a simple-to-use encrypted email account elsewhere, such as Tutanota or Protonmail.

New California Bill Proposal Aims To Protect ‘Targeted Individuals’

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Dr. Tomo Shibata has proposed a Bill to members of the California legislature entitled 'The Organized Torture Act,' which seeks to criminalize many of the types of attacks that are clandestinely made on Targeted Individuals.

  • Reflect On:

    How does making each individual in society culpable for their immoral and illegal actions, despite the pressure brought to bear on them to do these acts by their authority, help to liberate us as a collective?

When German soldiers used the “I was just following orders” defense during the Nuremberg trials as a justification for heinous war crimes, it was established that “defense of superior orders” is not a defense for war crimes. As Nuremberg Principle IV states,

The fact that a person acted pursuant to order of his Government or of a superior does not relieve him from responsibility under international law, provided a moral choice was in fact possible to him.

Now, Human Rights Analyst Dr. Tomo Shibata would like this form of culpability governing war crimes extended to all those who are participating or are complicit in the ‘Organized Torture’ of Targeted Individuals, which involves a multiplicity of tactics and processes including gangstalking, intimidation, surveillance, and directed Electronic Weapons attacks. Dr. Shibata views these acts at least on a par with war crimes if not even more insidious in their nature and intent. She maintains that, “The proposed bill titled the ‘Organized Torture Act’ declares that Organized Covert Torture is a Crime against Humanity.”

The Targeting Phenomenon

If you are not familiar with the phenomenon of Targeted Individuals, I would like to point you to my previous articles on the subject, ‘Targeted Individuals Need The Awakening Community To Believe Their Stories,’ and ‘Meet A “Targeted Individual” – Woman Shares Her Experience With Directed Energy Weapons & More.’

comprehensive article by Ramola Dharmaraj covering the genesis of Dr. Shibata’s Bill Proposal helps us better understand the phenomenon:

This proposal was made, Dr. Shibata states, on the basis of complaints to human rights groups from high numbers of residents across California from various cities including San Diego, Berkeley, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Palo Alto, and others, of “organized covert torture” whereby, in lieu of outright abduction, victims are kept under constant control of the covert torture organizations by organized stalking, sustained surreptitious monitoring, cyberstalking, and stealth physical assault and battery with radiation weaponry such as microwave/radar surveillance weapons. Different sources offer varying estimates, running into hundreds of thousands, of the numbers of organized covert torture victims often labeled “Targeted Individuals” within the USA and around the world.

Why this particular form of crime is so insidious is that victims are often unaware that such intentional activities are being performed on them, and as these crimes often involved a concerted combination of physiological, social, mental and emotional attacks carried out clandestinely, the victim is often left in a state of isolation, to deal with feelings of paranoia and doubts about their own sanity.

If any type of crime needed the attention of the general and awakening public it is this one, as a growing awareness and acknowledgment of this phenomenon is absolutely essential to bring solace to the victims as well as empowering them to find ways to overcome these attacks. Dr. Shibata’s initiative is an important avenue for this, and it is why she needs to be supported by the public in this endeavor, especially in California where interested legislators are looking for signs that there is a public need and demand for this bill before tabling it in the legislature.

Who Is Doing The Targeting?

Here is where it gets complex, and for good reason. It’s hard to know who is calling the shots here. In all likelihood, the technology and organization that make these covert attacks possible and prevent any resistance from the citizenry comes directly from the secretive bowels of the Deep State and those areas of the Military-Industrial Complex that this group has infiltrated. Certainly this power has been around for a long time, as John F. Kennedy clearly identified back in 1961:

We are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed. It conducts the Cold War, in short, with a war-time discipline no democracy would ever hope or wish to match. (source)

And as technology has improved, and remote influence has become more powerful and accurate, it appears that one growing cog of the Deep State’s strategy of domination and enslavement is to experiment on individuals, not in laboratories as they did with MK Ultra experiments that ultimately led to citizens successfully suing the government for damages, but in the course of individuals’ normal lives, while they smugly observe our inability to clearly detect and understand what is going on.

Whistleblower Testimony

We do have brave whistleblowers who have come out to help us see some pieces of the puzzle. One is former FBI Special Agent Geral Sosbee, who spoke with Ramola:

Former FBI Special Agent and Whistleblower Geral Sosbee testified that he believed the FBI leads the process to wrongfully name people Suspected Terrorists or criminals and centrally command DHS Fusion Center contractors and local police to commit and condone the organized stalking and organized covert torture with stealth weapons against them.

Geral Sosbee stated that it was his “personal opinion–based on also my professional experience–that the FBI is spearheading the most colossal and evil attacks on people ever conceived on the face of the Earth, and they are using Deep Space-based technology, they are using Bio-Chemical Bio Warfare Elements and Agents, and they’re using Psychological Warfare to destroy people.”

Further, Mr. Sosbee testifies that the FBI operate as a global Mafia syndicate; historic analyses of how CIA and FBI operate have shown that they incorporate elements of the Mafia, gangs, and criminal networks in informant, infiltration, and entrapment operations. (source,  source)

“I have learned through my battles with FBI that the agents, operatives, hoodlums, thugs and murderers are the essence of all FBI operations, even though the FBI puts on a charade of semi respectability on popular media. The FBI is in reality a global MAFIA syndicate and most people fear or idolize them.”

In an article describing how the FBI persuades corrupt Federal Magistrate Judges (FMJ) to issue fraudulent court orders against people of integrity and whistleblowers they wish to destroy by making them targets of Fusion Center Surveillance and stealth-weapon “monitoring,” Sosbee describes how local police become pawns in this mission:

“All police and all private security companies are especially reminded not to interfere with the secret orders of a FMJ. With any effort to defend the Target against the order, the licensed investigator or police officer loses his license or is fired through contempt orders.”

The Reason Individual Conspirators Need To Be Held Accountable

There are other testimonies from former agents, politicians, and military people, but the reason I bring up Sosbee’s testimony is for how it paints a picture of the hierarchical web of complicity that makes these operations possible. Law enforcement, fusion center contractors, criminals and even some members of the general public can be complicit in the enterprise. Thus a hierarchical chain-of-command leading upwards into the most secretive and protected bowels of the Deep State means it is nearly impossible for us to get to the head of the snake.

Some, like Sosbee, believe the FBI leads this process; others maintain the CIA is at the helm. In all likelihood, the ultimate power rests within a group without a name or public identity, who use corrupted aspects of the CIA, FBI and other government intelligence and surveillance agencies, the judiciary, law enforcement, and others to ensure they will be able to wreak unfettered attacks on whomever they choose.

Which is why we need to first put the spotlight on the smaller players, the pawns, the bit criminals, those who are only doing it to retain their job or license, and fear reprisal if they speak out about what they very well may consider injustice. They need to be reminded that they are each responsible for their actions, and there needs to be serious consequences for knowingly acting in ways that are illegal or immoral.  Blindly following orders, just as German soldiers were found to have done in the Nuremberg trials, can no longer be condoned.

The Organized Torture Act

Dr. Shibata’s Bill proposal for her ‘Organized Torture Act’ serves as a first step in this direction. In my mind, if this Bill is introduced to the legislature and eventually passed into law, it will have a positive 3-fold effect just in terms of awareness:

  1. It will promote awareness amongst some perpetrators that what they are doing is considered wrong by the state, and will encourage them (and support them) in refusing to engage in activities they themselves consider immoral or illegal, despite the pressure being brought to bear upon then from their higher-ups.
  2. It will promote greater awareness amongst targeted victims that they are no longer alone in their fight, and will begin to have some legitimate ways to counteract what is being done to them.
  3. It will promote awareness to the public at large, and legitimize the long-held claims amongst victims that this is a reality; not only will segments of the general public and some professionals (social workers, mental health professionals) stop being unknowing accomplices as a result of their skepticism of victims’ claims, there will be more overall public support for indictments and prosecutions, which may also lead to more intelligence gathering about forces higher up the hierarchy.

The official bill proposal can be found here. Some of the highlights follow here as taken from Ramona’s article cited above:

Bill Proposal Seeks to Curtail and Penalize Law Enforcement Officers in Organized Torture/Stalking

Noting therefore the involvement of some Law Enforcement in Organized Stalking and Organized Covert Torture activities, the bill proposal seeks punitive consequences of higher fines and longer-term imprisonments for police/Peace Officers found guilty of violating the bill’s proposed laws against Organized Torture and Stalking.

Such violations have been publicly reported. Indeed, this writer has previously covered and is in contact with several California (and other US state) residents who have reported being egregiously stalked and surveilled by Police and EMS personnel, including with Police vehicles and helicopters. For instance, Tina Lane, a California resident (name changed for her protection), a State-protected victim of domestic abuse, attests in fact to being human-trafficked and stalked and surveilled continuously by local Law Enforcement, even though she is under State protection.

Special attention is paid in the bill proposal to those Peace Officers who disregard victim-reportage as delusional and recklessly “psych-commit” reporting victims– by unlawfully naming them delusional or “paranoid schizophrenic,” then wrongfully arresting and detaining them in 3-day 5150 Holds, in abuse of Section 5150 of the California Welfare and Institutions Code.

Excerpt/Organized Torture Bill Proposal

Also noted in the bill proposal is the defamatory discrediting of victims with falsified medical records painting victims in a false light—such as naming them drug addicts or sex offenders–and injuriously doing so in the victim’s own neighborhood and community, soliciting organized surveillance and harassment by neighbors and EMS/public personnel.

An added aspect considers especially vulnerable populations. The bill proposal seeks to rout out Peace Officer complicity with Organized Torture organizations to prevent abusive discrimination against vulnerable populations, like child abuse survivors and psychologically-disabled residents, who are being intentionally selected for Organized Torture. Victimizing of such protected classes would incur further penalties for any participating Peace Officer, making him civilly and criminally liable for any injury sustained and indeed personally liable—not indemnified, that is, able to rely on taxpayer monies–to pay compensation to victims.

Psychiatrists and Doctors Aiding and Abetting Organized Torture Would Be Penalized

The Organized Torture bill proposal also seeks to fine, imprison, and de-license psychiatrists who purposefully or knowingly facilitate Organized Torture by issuing false diagnoses; or medical doctors who purposefully or knowingly tamper with physical evidence of organized covert torture injury sustained by reporting victims.

Excerpt/Organized Torture Bill Proposal

Californian residents and organizations who care about stanching these extreme human rights abuses are encouraged to help support efforts to persuade State senators and representatives to introduce the Organized Torture Bill via Dr. Shibata’s GoFundMe page where she encourages supporters/groups to both donate funds and sign their names openly to present a public show of support.

If passed, this law could set a much-needed precedent for other states in the US and world, as cities, states, and countries worldwide struggle with issues of Organized Torture and Stalking. Thousands of targeted victims would benefit, and the covert assault programs run by the criminal elements of the government and the Mafia alike, currently rampant, would fade away. As Dr. Shibata explains, “Positive strides in CA to counteract the crimes of Organized Stalking and Organized Covert Torture through legislation will be a model for other states to follow suit. Donations of any size will contribute to the ongoing efforts to criminalize and to end this sophisticated crime against humanity.”

The Takeaway

Efforts to make individuals accountable for actions that are detrimental to humanity helps tear down the control hierarchies that currently enslave us, since without the footsoldiers carrying out their missions there can be no war. One of the fundamental tenets of our collective awakening is that we as individuals are responsible for our actions. Our liberty is contingent on our steadfast unwillingness to accept the notion that being ordered or threatened to do something we personally believe is immoral or illegal is any kind of excuse or justification for doing it. A new world, organized around equality and fairness, is set to come into being once everyone realizes not only their responsibility within the whole, but also the fact that they need not be a compliant subordinate to anyone else.

Strange Looking ‘Tesla Tower’ In Texas Aims To Transmute Electricity Wirelessly

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Viziv Technologies have erected a tower in Milford, Texas that bears a striking resemblance to Tesla's Wardenclyffe tower. The new tower aims to send wireless electricity across the world for all.

  • Reflect On:

    Have we already had the technologies to change our energy systems for centuries? Is their a coverup? What is holding it back now? Are we ready as a society to truly accept collaborative and peaceful technologies?

Is it possible to transmit electricity wirelessly? Some claim yes, that this type of technology was not only utilized in ancient times, like in Egypt for example but also by 19th-century scientists and mystic Nikola Tesla.

Although Tesla has become quite a popular historical figure, despite being left out of secondary and post-secondary education books, and work being seized by U.S. intelligence agencies. Furthermore, there are other explanations for a complete silencing of Tesla’s work, the monopoly J.P Morgan had the copper used to make electrical wires, for example.

With all that being said, Tesla’s vision of free and wireless energy transfer that could be converted into electricity is still known by many. Tesla wanted to use the wheelwork of nature to create energy, today, we do it by smashing things together and trying to create an explosion. Tesla gave us electric motors, which eventually turned into electric cars, and again, his visions hopes, theory and possible completion of a technology that was able to send electricity through the air.

People are still trying to make this vision a reality today, and if you drive down Interstate-35 on the road to Dallas, you’ll see it for yourself, it’s a strange looking tower that resembles Tesla’s Wardenclyffe and according to Michael Taylor of Viziv Technologies, the company behind the tower, they’re “focusing early-on, on continuous signalling, things like regional GPS, radio navigation and broadcast signaling.”

The company currently has a partnership with the Baylor University Research and Innovation Collaborative to help explore the applications of their technology.

Over the last 100 years scientists have been trying to figure out how to transport energy around the globe without cables and wires, and again, perhaps it’s an ancient practice/ability, but according to the website of Viziv Technologies, “the search is over.” Although we already knew this was possible via Tesla’s work.

The claim:

Viziv surface wave systems utilize a long theorized but never successfully demonstrated terrestrial, electromagnetic phenomena known as the Zenneck surface wave….Our surface wave technology has wide-ranging applications for communications, navigation, and energy delivery. Low-frequency surface waves can propagate around the Globe from a single location with an until-now unachievable efficiency…Our surface wave technology has wide-ranging applications for communications, navigation, and energy delivery…Clean, safe and reliable, wireless power will bring valuable resources to parts of the world that don’t have consistent access to necessities like potable water and life-saving medical treatment.

Their technology is made up of a wave system that allows the Earth itself to be used for clean, safe and efficient transfer of power between any two points on the global, wirelessly. These would be low-frequency waves, not like the EMF waves that come from 5G cell towers, or wireless internet routers, for example. This technology only uses surface waves, and not ground waves which are radiated waves.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the American National Standard Institute (ANSI) have strict guidelines for RF exposure levels. These standards have been in place for decades. Those limits are more than ten times what will be produced by commercial Viziv surface wave systems.

Today’s power distribution system of wired grids is fragile and aging.  The transition to a global wireless system utilizing the Zenneck surface wave is a breakthrough that will effectively “cut the cord” between power generation facilities and the local distribution grids.  This breakthrough will significantly enhance energy surety, reliability, and resiliency of the world’s electrical distribution systems.

The system will use a “transmitter probe,” that’s what you see in the picture, and is located near a power generation plant in order to launch the Zenneck carrier wave. The receiver antennae will be placed all over the world.

The wave is named after Jonathan Zenneck (1871-1959), he was one of the first known scientists to study electromagnetic wave propagation over the surface of the Earth.

Viziv Technologies has a portfolio of over 60 U.S. and international granted patents. Additional patent applications are in development and more are expected.

  • 100+ Unique U.S. patents filed.
  • 760+ Pending patent filings (U.S. and International).
  • 65+ Patents granted (U.S. and International).

“Ere many generations pass, our machinery will be driven by a power obtainable at any point in the universe. This idea is not novel…We find it in the delightful myth of Antheus, who derives power from the earth; we find it among subtle speculations of one of your splendid mathematicians….Throughout space there is energy. Is this energy static, or kinetic? If static our hopes are in vain; if kinetic – and this we know it is, for certain – then it is a mere question of time when men will succeed in attaching their machinery to the very wheelwork of nature.” – Nikola Tesla (source)

There are also people that seem to be discovering what Tesla discovered.

You’re Telling Me Technology Like This Exists But We’re Still Using Oil, Gas & Coal? 

The Takeaway

This is important. The technology we have to generate electricity in a clean, safe manner is truly limitless. It’s something we’ve written about and presented to the public here at Collective Evolution multiple times. It goes way beyond primitive ideas of using solar or wind as well.  The problem we have here is consciousness, red tape, and the power our current energy industry has over the global economy. Think about our world for a moment, is our consciousness truly ready for free, limitless energy? Or does the way we live still represent division, competition, and greed? Are we truly ready for a technology that will change everything about how we live?

In terms of red-tape and power, it’s an oil-based economy, and for years we’ve been asking/expecting them to make the transition towards clean energy. Only now are we seeing these giants divest in such technology. What took them so long? We’ve been sitting on clean natural ways to do things for a long time, and not in a way that would send us back to the stone ages.

Another big reason these technologies have “never seen the light of day” as Dr. Brian O’Leary, former NASA astronaut and princess physics professor once said, is because powerful corporations, who dictate government policy and oversee patent secrecy, stand so much to lose.

Those at the top, controlling our resources and running the show do not have our best interests at heart. Thankfully, something is happening, and awareness is growing. We are understanding who these people are and we are shifting our consciousness. From a very practical view, as awareness grows, more people invent these technologies and more people become aware of them. But only when the human race is ready to accept the implications of such technology, which is spiritual in nature, will they truly come out. I don’t believe this will take too much longer, but we still have a ways to go. I am completely convinced that some technologies in this area are and will coincide with the recognization that we are more than just our body, and that matter is not the only reality…

With censorship, things have become tough. If just 5% of people seeing this today supported CE, we'd be able to fund a TRUE investigative team INSTANTLY. Your support truly matters and goes a long way! 

Thanks, you're keeping conscious media alive.
