10 Female Revolutionaries That You Won’t Hear About In History Class

Published

on

Working at Collective Evolution, your interests have to be quite diverse. But one common theme here is a strong desire to change the human experience for the better, create a  world where everybody can thrive and break down the barriers that prevent us from doing so. There are many ways to do this, from creating awareness on important/sensitive issues, to more action based projects that can help others, all the way to making changes in your own life.

I came across this idea from an article making its way around the web at wizzpast. Since it had a pretty good reach, I decided to change up the list a bit and pick some new people, as it is a big one to provide more diversity on.

One thing that’s common to come across are “revolutionary” type figures that have sparked great changes throughout human history and have had a lasting impact on global consciousness. Names that come to mind are Ghandi, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Che Guevara, Nelson Mandela and more. We see them in literature everywhere, in textbooks and more. There’s nothing wrong with this, it’s great, but why are the names that come to mind always male revolutionaries when there have been female figures who’ve accomplished and made  just as much of an impact, if not more?

It’s not a hard question to answer, it’s because for a very long time, Earth has been dominated by males, they’ve held positions of power, and suppressed, ridiculed and controlled the role of the female gender. It’s no different from racism, or the many other examples of inequality that still exist in our world today.

One common theme here, is that all of these people felt the deep urge to “fight” for equality and raise awareness on some very important issues. The movement that these women sparked, and continue to be (some) involved in has now grown so much so that today, it’s massive. The desire for global change, equality, and a world where everybody can thrive is possible. Nobody on this planet should suffer, and nobody has to. We have a lot of work to do to create a new world, and to break down the barriers that prevent us from achieving it.  The small steps the human race has taken over the decades continue to increase exponentially, we are now leaping and running as we move forward through 2015 and beyond. Exciting times are ahead as human beings are waking up, and awareness, new information and change is occurring on multiple levels, and in multiple fields.

Tawakkol Karman is a Yemeni journalist, politician and chair of Women Journalists Without Chains. An organization that works towards the development of effective community-based media partnership; promotes knowledge; fights corruption: triumph; rights and freedoms. She is all about a peaceful approach to bringing about change, and is also the first Arab women to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. She is considered to be one of the most powerful women of the past century, and is Yemen’s most active activist. She has been fighting to end a dictatorship that presents itself as a democracy. This is a common theme here at CE, on our side of the pond, we try to create awareness regarding politicians, how they are two wings of the same bird and the flight path doesn’t change. We live with the illusion of democracy, where corporations dictate government policy and laws that go against the will of the majority. You can learn and read more about Tawakkol Karman here

Kathleen Neal Cleaver an American law professor, that is known for her involvement in the Black Panther Party, a revolutionary nationalist and socialist organization fighting for equality, standing up against injustice, police brutality and much more for approximately two decades – starting in the 1960’s. She has spent her entire life fighting the struggle against human rights, and that’s why she is such an important figure. She and other women, such as Angela Davis, made up around 2/3 of the Party at one point, despite the notion that the BPP was overwhelmingly masculine. She has accomplished so much and has sparked wide spread global change on so many different levels. You can learn more about her here.

Aung San Suu Kyi was only recently granted freedom after 15 long years of arrest for speaking out against the violent rule of dictator U Ne Win. She started a nonviolent movement toward equality, peace and human rights. The movement became so large that the government placed her under house arrest. In 1991 she was awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace.  She is known as “the Lady” to millions of Burmese citizens who consider her more of a goddess than a rebel. You can learn more about her and her efforts here and here.

Nwanyeruwa Ojim was a woman like Rosa Parks. A Nigerian woman who refused to see the colonial (British) government “take over,” influence, brainwash, force their ideals and dictate how other human beings should live. She gathered a very significant amount, approximately 25,000  women from Eastern Nigeria at the time in protest. Her resistance alone sparked what was known as “the woman’s war” in 1929. You can read and learn more about her here, from the book titled “The Feminization of Development Processes in Africa: Current and Future.”

Phoolan Devi, known in India as the “Bandit Queen” and one of the nations most infamous “outlaws,” she comes from a very dark past. Being the victim of a non consensual marriage, and several sexual abductions. She was responsible for a string of robberies across the nation targeting the “upper class” of the caste system that comes out of India. In 1981 she was responsible for the murder of more than 20 men in a “high-caste” village where her former “husband” was also killed. She was sentenced to prison for a decade, and when she was released she became a member of parliament. Her opposition to the caste system in India is what made her such a giant symbol of hope, although many do not agree with the extreme actions she took, it is something I personally cannot comment on given the fact that I cannot even begin to imagine what was sparked within her having gone through what she had. In 2001 she was killed by a group of “high caste” men. You can read more about her here

Asmaa Mahfouz is an Egyptian activist and was a key player in sparking the Egyptian Revolution. You can watch the video I am referring to here. The video went viral, where she urged people to protest the “corrupt government” of Hosni Mubarak by rallying in Tahrir Square on January 25th. You can learn more about her story here.

Emmeline Pankhurst was a leading women’s rights activist who led the movement to win the right for women to vote (suffragette movement). She’s considered to be one of the most important people of the 20th century. She was arrested numerous times for her activism, and although she faced a lot of hardships, she never quit in her quest of equality. She was also a strong advocate of public revolt. You can learn more about her here, but a simple Google search would also suffice.

Mary Wollstonecraft, in the 18th century was a strong advocate for women’s rights. Can you imagine the backlash she must have received? Although we still live in a male dominated society today, it was pretty ridiculous in the 18th century. She was a strong defender of women’s rights, fighting for others to realize that they should be equal to men. She expressed that women were brought up to be “empty-headed play things,” and she felt that society was morally bankrupt. She is one of the earliest known rebellious women, and definitely one that was not able to be brainwashed. People like her, and the rest on this list serve as an inspiration to all of us, and they would smile knowing that many more souls like them exist on the planet today in great numbers. I often think how lonely these people must have felt. You can learn a little more about her here.

Leymah Gbowee helped organize and lead what is known as the the Liberian Mass Action for Peace, a coalition of Christian and Muslim women who sat in public protest, confronting Liberia’s president and warlords. She even held a sex strike. As a result of her actions, she emerged as an international leader/activist who changed history, she’s a symbol for women taking control of their political destiny around the world. She helped bring an end to the second Liberian war in 2003.

 carl

Rachel Carson was a major player in the environmentalist movement today, and she sparked the entire movement in the 1960’s with her book Silent Spring. She was a writer, biologist, environmentalist and ecologist. The book documented the dangers of pesticides and herbicides, something that we are STILL trying to create awareness about today. She showed what toxic chemicals in water and on land and the presence of DDT can to do humans and animals. We create a lot awareness regarding herbicides and pesticides today, this is why I chose her as one of my 10. She also had access to a lot of classified material after the second world war, which also drew my attention to her. She is a well known figure, and a simple Google search will tell you a lot more about her.

Why We Need To Stop Bashing R. Kelly If We Want To Stop Teen Sexual Abuse & Pedophilia

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Singer superstar Robert Kelly has been charged with multiple accounts of child porn, rape, abuse, and running a sex cult where he kept several young women as sex slaves inside his home.

  • Reflect On:

    If we only react to crimes with judgement, anger, and hatred, do we ever give ourselves a chance to understand why this happens? If we don't take the time to do that, how can we ever stop it? Today, it's turned into an epidemic.

R. Kelly is a hot topic right now, as he’s been accused of raping minors, keeping minors locked up in his home for sexual purposes, and having inappropriate relationships with minors. We are talking about teenagers who ultimately are still just children. The testimony of many women and those close to him have illuminated  what Kelly has done, although he still denies these claims. As a result of a recent docu-series on Lifetime called ‘Surviving R Kelly,’ he is being made fun of, judged, and hated on publicly by many within the industry as well as outside of it. On the surface, this is understandable given the crimes and atrocities he’s committed.

The star is known as a predator of teenage girls. When he was 27, he married 15-year-old singer Aaliyah at a secret ceremony in Chicago. Vibe magazine later discovered that they were able to change Aaliyah’s age on the wedding certificate listing herself as 18, even though she was only 15 at the time. The marriage was annulled in February 1995.

A girl by the name of Tiffany Hawkins sued R Kelly for the personal injuries and emotional distress she suffered during a three-year relationship with the star. In court documents, she said she began having sex with Kelly in 1991 when she was 15 and he was 24.

He has been charged with 21 counts of making child pornography involving intercourse, oral sex, urination, and other sexual acts. Chicago police accused him of videotaping each of these acts and enticing minors to participate in them.

Back in July 2017, a crowd gathered in Chicago as Timothy Savage told the world that he believed his 21-year-old daughter was being “held against her will” as part of an alleged sex cult led by R&B singer R Kelly.

As it turns out, she wasn’t the only one. Apparently, there were several women held captive as sex slaves in a home he owned.

advertisement - learn more

The story made global news, and put the spotlight on the 51-year-old superstar’s private life – in particular, the rumours about his alleged sexual relationships with underage girls.

Savage claimed his daughter, Jocelyn, was part of an abusive sex cult, in which young girls were groomed and physically/sexually abused by Kelly.

R Kelly’s wife, ex-wife, and daughter have also been quite outspoken about his abusive behaviour, even more so now that so many people are gathering together and sharing their stories. When R. Kelly was making millions for record companies, it seemed to be swept under the rug. Along with these accusations also came many awards, fame, and notoriety.

It’s important to note that what we hear and what leaks out into the mainstream probably represents only a fraction of Kelly’s illegal activities. Many celebrities and members of the elite are often protected from the law, and many abused women and children may not feel comfortable coming forward.

How Should We React?

Amidst all of the judgement, anger, resentment and hatred towards R. Kelly, and any sexual predator, criminal, etc. for that matter, we often fail to address one of the most important questions: We forget to ask why and how.

There is no denying people have been hurt here, and it’s important to discuss what’s happened, but we must also discuss solutions. All we seem to do is judge, hate, and punish without asking why and how these things happen. It reminds me of how we operate prison systems in the western world. We claim to rehabilitate individuals, but really we just force them into incredibly poor conditions that often make their state of mind worse by the time of their release, and then we send them back out into society expecting that the past won’t repeat itself.

If we continue to judge, make fun, and ‘bash,’ we simply reinforce the cycle and allow it to continue without ever getting to the root cause of it, thus prolonging the issue instead of stopping it. In essence, just as we must provide a loving space for victims to process their experiences, we must also create that space for perpetrators.

As much as people may not want to hear it, ask yourself the question: Are we really changing anything by holding so much hate and judgment toward perpetrators? What happens when those hated individuals enter into bad rehabilitation systems and are out of prison a mere 5 or 10 years later? We’re perpetuating a cycle of disconnection.

Flipping The Script

People like R. Kelly are ‘sick,’ in the same way murderers, other rapists, and criminals are ‘sick.’ The only response from society has been judgement, and the result of that judgement is jail time which largely benefits politicians and corporations. It’s a modern day example of slavery, and actually has nothing to do with rehabilitation and fostering understanding and compassion.

When it comes to sexually abusing children, those who participate in this type of activity have often been subjected to severe childhood trauma themselves. It could be sexual or something else. As a result, they grow up and repeat what they have been through or look for other unhealthy ways to cope as they struggle to fit into society. This is something that has not been addressed nor understood by all of those who are participating in what’s become known as ‘elite level sexual abuse.’

In the case of R. Kelly himself, most people probably don’t realize he is a victim of child sex abuse. He has detailed in his autobiography how he was raped when he was eight years old, which continued for years. His brother also recently gave an emotional interview detailing how both of them were repeatedly raped at very young ages by their older sister, starting from when they were about 6 years old. They were forced to perform sexual acts on her as well as have intercourse. (source)

Think about what this does to a child at that age. This is trauma, and his behaviour may be a result of this trauma. Further, the Lifetime documentary series Surviving R Kelly clearly shows Kelly tries incredibly hard to protect himself from getting hurt. This is likely part of why he is so controlling. As hard as it is to watch and hear, it seems like he attempts to control every aspect of his life so that he avoids getting hurt. Does it mean it’s right to do? Of course not, it simply shows the frame of mind he’s operating from, and understanding that helps us figure out how we can help R Kelly. If we don’t put aside our hatred and judgement in order to feel compassion for these individuals, we will never find a solution. If we refuse, we not only fail to help the perpetrator, but we end up further perpetuating the issue and creating more victims.

Another great example would be the Vatican. Take Cardinal George Pell, for example, who recently became the highest ranking Vatican official to ever be convicted of child sexual abuse. This is something, most likely, he grew up experiencing himself. To him, it could be ‘normal’ behaviour, even if that’s at the subconscious level. Many of these Cardinals have been in the church since they were children. Not long ago, decades worth of sexual abuse was reported in a choir that was led by the retired pope Benedict’s brother. In that specific case, there were approximately 600 members of a Catholic boys’ Dompatzen choir in Regenburg, Germany who where physically and sexual abused from 1946 to 1992. Georg Ratzinger, the former Pope’s Benedict’s brother, was the choir’s head from 1964 to 1994.

Without treatment, many of these children may grow up and abuse young children. And if they don’t leave the church, they could end up further perpetuating the cycle of sexual abuse within it.

Asking The Important Questions

Register to watch our exclusive 4-part interview series with Anneke.

What does hatred do? What does judgement do? What progress will we ever make by making fun of these people, labelling them as psychopaths, and locking them up? On the other hand, what will love do? What does understanding do? What progress would be made without judgement and punishment, but rather with understanding, openness, transparency, and communication? We may need to detain these people to stop them from hurting others, but we must think of better ways of approaching this than our current methodology.

Don’t believe me? Hear it from a victim of elite child sex trafficking. We just put out a 4-part interview series with Anneke Lucas on January 17th, where she describes in detail her involvement as a child in an elite Belgian pedophile ring, her remarkable escape, and her healing journey over the last couple decades.

In the interview, she explains how vital it is during the healing process to not feel like a ‘victim,’ and that you actually empower your abuser by taking the victim stance or by labelling them as ‘crazy satanic pedophiles.’ She learned to look at them from a different perspective. Eventually, she felt sorry for her perpetrators and realized that the abusers are in need of something society is not ready to provide them with: the opportunity to heal.

The Takeaway

Sexual abuse has been an issue deeply ingrained in society for centuries, and it’s in part because society fails to respond with compassion. We do the exact opposite of that. We make fun of, vilify, point fingers, punish, and kill criminals. We do not rehabilitate and we do not give a chance for ‘lost souls’ to connect to the light that exists within them, that light that exists within all of us. There is no talk of past trauma and healing, and this is one of the biggest problems when it comes to alleviating various crimes including sexual abuse and pedophilia.

These people have nobody to talk to, their always running and hiding and never addressing the root cause of their problems. As a result, many people experience pain and trauma, and the cycle continues.

European Union Approval of Glyphosate Found To Be Based On Plagiarized Science From Monsanto

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Glyphosate, an active ingredient within Monsanto's Roundup herbicide, was recently re-licensed and approved by the European Parliament. However, MEPs found the science given to them was plagiarized, full of industry science written by Monsanto.

  • Reflect On:

    With so much science showing it's harmful to humans and the environment, and the fact that several dozen countries have made it illegal, why is it still approved in the UK, Canada, and US? Among a few other places.

It’s hard to know where to begin when it comes to glyphosate, an active ingredient used in Monsanto’s infamous ‘Roundup herbicide,’ a product that’s illegal in many countries (not including Canada and the United States). For a number of years, these countries have been citing the devastating health and environmental effects of Roundup herbicide, namely regarding glyphosate. Sri Lanka, for example, completely banned the product because of it’s link to deadly kidney disease, whereas many other countries have cited its carcinogenic effects. The science is quite clear, and it’s been coming out for decades. Fernando Manas, Ph.D. at the National University of Rio Cuarto in Argentina, outlines how “There is evidence of high levels of genetic damage in people of Marcos Juarez (Argentina), which may result from unintentional exposure to pesticides.” (source)

Nobody can really argue against why glyphosate shouldn’t be approved anywhere in the world, especially when you take a look at the science. Glyphosate recently made headlines, as the case regarding school groundskeeper Dewayne Johnson was the first lawsuit claiming that glyphosate causes cancer to go to trial. There are thousands upon thousands of similar pending cases. Any jury that reviews all of the scientific evidence will not be able to rule otherwise, and Johnson’s case was a great example that showed glyphosate caused his cancer.

How are these products approved? It comes as a result of corrupt regulatory agencies here in Canada as well as within the US, specifically the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centres for Disease Control  and Prevention (CDC). The list of examples is very long when it comes to corruption and government connections to corporations like Monsanto. This is the only way these products get approved, it’s not science, it’s simply lobbying efforts and shady politics.

“It is commonly believed that Roundup is among the safest pesticides… Despite its reputation, Roundup was by far the most toxic among the herbicides and insecticides tested. This inconsistency between scientific fact and industrial claim may be attributed to huge economic interests, which have been found to falsify health risk assessments and delay health policy decisions.” – R. Mesnage et al., Biomed Research International, Volume 2014 (2014), article ID 179691

EU regulators recently decided to relicense glyphosate, and it came based on an assessment that was plagiarized from industry reports. It’s quite backwards that for years, health regulators have been relying on the scientific reports from the company that manufactures these products, instead of seeking out independent scientific studies.

A group of MEPs decides to commission an investigation into claims that Germany’s Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (bFr) copy-and-pasted tracts from Monsanto studies.

As the Guardian points out:

The study’s findings have been released hours before a parliamentary vote on tightening independent scrutiny of the pesticides approvals process. The authors said they found “clear evidence of BfR’s deliberate pretence of an independent assessment, whereas in reality the authority was only echoing the industry applicant’s assessment. Molly ScottCato, a Green MEP, said the scale of alleged plagiarism by the BfR authors shown by the new paper was “extremely alarming.”

Molly Scott Cato, a member of European Parliament, went on to tell the Guardian:

“This helps explain why the World Health Organization assessment on glyphosate as a probable human carcinogen was so at odds with EU assessors, who awarded this toxic pesticide a clean bill of health, brushing off warnings of its dangers.”

The study found plagiarism in half of the chapters assessing published studies on the health risk, which means that half of the science came directly from Monsanto themselves, because the plagiarism was of industry science.  And what does the industry do? Jane Goodall, although referencing GMOs, hammers home the point:

As part of the process, they portrayed the various concerns as merely the ignorant opinions of misinformed individuals – and derided them as not only unscientific, but anti-science. They then set to work to convince the public and government officials, through the dissemination of false information, that there was an overwhelming expert consensus, based on solid evidence, that GMOs were safe. (source)

This quote came from a book written by Lawyer Steven Druker, who sued the FDA and uncovered documents showing how the agency manipulated the science and corrupted scientists in order to get GMOs approved. You can read more about that in detail here.

The same thing goes for glyphosate.

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) based its recommendation that glyphosate was safe for public use on the BfR’s assessment.

According to the EFSA, “The report does not provide any new scientific information that calls into question the assessment and conclusions of glyphosate. EFSA stands firmly behind the integrity of its risk assessment process and its conclusions on glyphosate.”

Jo Lewis, the Soil Associations policy director told the Guardian:

“It is unacceptable that pesticide-industry studies receive greater recognition than scientific peer-reviewed open literature in regulatory decision-making. Whilst this paper focuses on the US EPA, similar criticisms have been made of EU decisions and we fear that outside the EU, pressure to approve pesticides will increase.”

Again, it’s weird how this is even a debate. This has been known for a very long time, and we’ve seen similar happenings with DDT in the past.

“Children today are sicker than they were a generation ago. From childhood cancers to autism, birth defects and asthma, a wide range of childhood diseases and disorders are on the rise. Our assessment of the latest science leaves little room for doubt; pesticides are one key driver of this sobering trend.” – October 2012 report by Pesticide Action Network North America (PANNA) (source)(source)

Keep in mind that the use of glyphosate has skyrocketed, a 1500% increase from 1995 to 2005 was seen, and 100 million pounds of this stuff is used every year on more than a billion acres in the United States alone.

It’s found in our food, our beverages, our favourite snacks, etc.

It’s even been found in the breast milk of mothers, and in urine samples of people across Europe. (source)

The main toxic effects of glyphosate as identified by MIT’s Dr. Stephanie Seneff include:

  • Kills beneficial gut bacteria and allows pathogens to overgrow
  • Interferes with function of cytochrome p450 (CYP enzymes)
  • Chelates important minerals (iron, cobalt, manganese, etc)
  • Interferes with synthesis of aromatic amino acids and methionine – leads to shortages in critical neurotransmitters and folate
  • Disrupts sulfate synthesis and sulfate transport

Need I write more?

The Takeaway

At the end of the day, despite the power these corporations hold over government regulatory agencies, it’s human beings that are actually spraying this stuff. This is why change needs to occur at an individual level. One day, no human will agree to spray or use Roundup herbicide, because our lives literally depend on it. We’re simply being used as tools by these corporations, and they profit off our ignorance. Our own consciousness is being used against us. The lies and the scientific fraud that occur in order to get these products on the market actually convince people that they are safe. It’s still hard for some people to accept let alone entertain the idea that our regulatory agencies would ever knowingly do something to harm us.

This is why awareness is so important, and why we must do our own research.

Authentic UFO Footage Caught On Camera By A University Professor & His Research Students

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Østfold University College has an observatory that is set up year round 24/7 for the purpose of filming the strange light phenomenon that is known in this part of Norway. And one night, scientists and students captured footage of an actual craft.

  • Reflect On:

    Think about how this topic has changed over the years, going from 'taboo' to completely verified within the mainstream. What are the implications of realizing that we have been visited for possibly longer than we've been aware of?

UFOs have gone from being a ‘taboo’ topic of discussion to a scientifically proven phenomenon. They’re real, and practically everybody knows it. This is evident from all of the declassified documents, witness testimonies, and electrooptical data that’s available as well as all of the mainstream ‘UFO’ disclosure that’s occurred over the past few years. We’re talking about testimonies from astronauts, generals, colonels, pilots and long-time Department of Defence and space agency scientists, like Norman Bergrun, Bob Dean, Colonel Ross Dedrickson, Edgar Mitchel, etc. The list is a very long one, and the number of testimonies reaches to well over one thousand if we look at them on a global scale.

The question is no longer if UFOs exist, but rather, who or what is behind the wheel? Just as there was evidence for UFOs decades ago when the phenomenon was referred to as a mere ‘conspiracy theory,’ the same holds true for the hypothesis that some of these objects may indeed be crafts piloted by extraterrestrial or extradimensional beings. There are plenty of reasons to assume that many of these craft are extraterrestrial, from contactee/abduction accounts as well as witness testimonies like the one included above.

The extraterrestrial hypothesis holds a lot of credibility, not to mention that many encounters with these crafts show a display of physics-defying maneuverers. This hypothesis made its way into the mainstream recently when a Pentagon official disclosed its “Aerospace Ariel Threat Identification Program.” The head of that program, Louis Elizondo, went on national television just weeks after retiring from the Pentagon stating that he believes some of these objects are piloted by intelligent extraterrestrials. (source)

So if that’s what you believe, you’re not alone in your thoughts. Mainstream UFO disclosure requires another discussion, as it’s hard to really trust any information or perspective that comes from mainstream media these days.

Video Footage

There are no shortage of, what seem to be, authentic videos from very credible sources. Sure, we’ve had multiple videos and pictures of these objects released by dozens of governments worldwide, but we also have footage from a number of civilians, like you and me, who have encountered these objects and have been lucky enough to have a phone or a camera on hand.

For example, a UFO was filmed by multiple crews in Turkey on May 13, 2009, and the footage appears to show occupants inside of the craft. It made headlines over there, and is well known to UFOlogists as the  Kum­burgaz, Turkey UFO incident. There were also several witnesses from the local village. The video was ana­lyzed by the Sci­en­tific and Tech­nol­ogy Research Board of Turkey (which is sponsored by the gov­ern­ment). They concluded and vouched for its authenticity. It was filmed by the late Dr. Roger Lier, which is fascinating because he was a doctor of Podiatric medicine, and arguably the best known individual with regards to extracting alleged alien implants. He has performed more than fifteen surgeries that removed sixteen separate distinct objects. These objects have been investigated by several prestigious laboratories, including Los Alamos National Laboratories, New Mexico Tech, and many others. You can watch him speak at the Citizens Hearing on Disclosure which took place a few years ago here.

The sighting in the video below comes from Erling P. Strand, an assistant professor in the Faculty of Computer Sciences at Østfold University College, Remmen in Halden.

The footage was taken by the Hessadalen Interactive Observatory at Ostfold University College. This particular observatory has captured and documented many strange anomalies that seem to plague the area. As far as I know, its the only official 24 hour UFO observatory in the world. Radar and cameras have tracked and filmed numerous inexplicable phenomenon in this area, with the fastest one recorded at 30,000 km per hour, which is faster than any known aircraft today.

The light phenomena here in Hessadelenm, Norway started in late ’81 with a lot of sightings. At the most it was 20 sightings a week. The local people here started to see the light down in the valley, sometimes close to their houses, and they were wondering, what could this be? (Quote from Strand, taken from The Day Before Disclosure

Radar and camera have since picked up astonishing photos of unexplained light phenomenon. Landings have also been reported, and conclusive evidence showing earth samples have also been taken.

Below is a picture of students and scientists examining a two ton piece of turf that was cut out in the area using laser precision. It was lifted and placed a few meters away. There was no sign of machinery or people.

One week during September 2007, a major survey was carried out by the university scientists assisted by students with several observation units. On the fourth night of the survey, something special happened. Below is footage taken from the film The Day Before Disclosurewritten and produced by Filmaker Terje Toftenes. The film (from where the above picture was taken) has footage of multiple instances documented by the observatory as well as more information on this particular area of Norway. It was taken by Stand and the students.

The first bit you see there is what showed up in September, although it’s dark but you can hear the excitement of Strand as well as the students as they scream with joy. The second piece of footage within the clip below, where it cuts to shortly after, is another incident that was filmed by the observatory .

Below is another picture from the observatory, one of many that continue to be completely unexplained to this day.

The Takeaway

What kind of implications are to come from the realization that we are not alone, and that we’ve been visited by beings from elsewhere for a long time? It truly leaves no aspect of humanity untouched, and it’s interesting to reflect on how sheltered we’ve been from so many topics, not just limited to UFOlogy. Ultimately, this sheltering from the truth often ends up hindering our willingness to learn about these subjects.

We have been conditioned to live our life, accept things the way they are, and ignore any information that challenges our beliefs despite any evidence presented. There is something for us to discover here, perhaps about ourselves or about the nature of reality and where we came from. Not long from now, it will be us traversing through the stars, stumbling upon other civilizations who will look up in awe. But first, we have to collectively accept that it’s time to take off the training wheels and fly. No longer can we continue to live on this planet the way we have been. If we want to move forward and live in peace, harmony and abundance, drastic changes need to be made.

At the end of the day, I believe this planet is more important than we are.
