Reader Email: We Can’t Be “Neutral Observers” In Trump/Biden Political Battle

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A reader sent an email about our coverage of the Trump/Biden clash stating that she 'can't see being a neutral observer.' Her passionate email presented a unique opportunity for me to expand exactly what we mean when we talk about neutrality.

  • Reflect On:

    Does neutrality necessarily imply that we will sit on the sidelines and simply wait for things to happen?

Not long after my article ‘Ukraine Showdown: Why Trump And Biden Are Facing Off‘ was published a few weeks ago, a reader named Marie sent an email that was quite intriguing in nature. It made a reasonable argument, and I felt it was a great illustration of a subtle misconception about remaining neutral in Left/Right politics, and the role neutrality plays in being fully engaged in the process of our collective awakening.

I fundamentally agree with Marie that now is a time for passionate activism, but I wanted to make an important distinction between being passionate and being polarized. I thought that presenting Marie’s points and challenging them on the concept of neutrality would help us to go deeper into its meaning and distinguish it from some aspects that are easily associated with it, such as passivity and inaction. Please note that this is a single email that I have divided into sections to respond to the individual points, it was not a ‘chat’ I had back and forth with Marie.

Marie’s Email

Hi Richard,

I want to chime in on your article pertaining to the Ukraine story.  I think it’s a little deeper than just the theater of the absurd.  The reason it appears absurd is because THE truth is not being given to us.  This story is just one of many where the actions and results taken affect the entire globe.

The side that must be taken is the one for truth and justice which is being denied to all the citizens as we are tossed and manipulated by the politicians of the world with stories (and so many more) like this Ukraine saga.  I think the collective consciousness will rise immensely when truth and justice actually start to be served.

If I understand your point here, it is that in this particular right/left battle Trump is on the side of truth and justice.

Yes, the article fundamentally details an uncovering of the truth behind Joe Biden’s lies about his dealings in the Ukraine. And let’s go further and even say the article clearly demonstrates that Biden is guilty of corruption. The question here is, is it necessary to align ourselves with the Right (Trump) in order to find out the truth about the Left (Biden)?

My argument for neutrality is that truth has no ‘side’–I don’t believe any ‘side’ has the whole truth, nor is any side fully absent of truth. And it is not necessary to be partisan (choosing right over left, or making Trump the hero and Biden the villain) in order to arrive at the truth on this or any other matter. Truth is truth, it will evidence itself to the keen and careful observer, but neutrality is important if we are ever to get to the full and unbiased truth. If we side with any politician and their side of the polarity we are unlikely to ever glean the whole truth.

Secondly, I need to make a distinction between truth and justice. It just so happens that justice does not need to be served in order for us to extract the truth from a situation like this Trump/Biden face off. The notion that Joe Biden and other such criminals need to be indicted and convicted before collective consciousness can rise is dubious. There is nothing wrong with seeing criminals have their day in court, but the extent of their punishment should really be of no consequence to the rise of our collective consciousness. Only the greater revealing of truth, if indeed the formal judicial process provides it, is of value to us. And that value is highest if we are able to remain neutral.

I believe the American government system was divinely founded and set up as an example for the world to follow.  Fast forward to today’s world and politicians have managed to find every way to compromise truth and justice; and, we, the people, are left miserable and forced to try to live by the laws that certain others continually thwart.  So, I don’t think anyone can sit this out and just observe with neutrality.  Now is when people need to demand that the whole truth and justice for all these stories be offered.  How can any of us be satisfied until that happens?  Otherwise, we keep settling for the absurd and become cynical.

I can go along with the notion that the American Republic was divinely inspired, or at minimum was conceived by profoundly wise and aware people. The belief that a full return to Constitutional rule in the United States is the path of our salvation is something that I am still on the fence on. What you go on to imply here is that we ‘need to demand the whole truth and justice’. What form would these ‘demands’ take? Is it really important that we extract the truth from the mouths of liars? Is the truth not already available to us? And if we actively seek out the truth with neutrality, and try to share it with others, can you really say that we are just sitting this one out?

If you bought an expensive ticket for a sports game and observed a game where the rules were changed haphazardly, you would be angry and want your money (taxes for example?) returned.  Not to mention all the people fired for lying to you about how this game was going to be played.

I don’t necessarily agree with this analogy, that I would get angry and would want my money returned. In the grand scheme of things, I believe the rules that were set out when we chose this incarnation ARE being followed, and we agreed to abide by them. In that regard, I believe what is playing out now in the political arena, what I have called the theatre of the absurd, does indeed support our ultimate goal of collective evolution. But not because it is pushing us to anger and fighting and polarization, but indeed because it is pushing us to something higher, above the fray, in a neutral place–which is where conscious activism is waged from.

So, I can’t see being a neutral observer.  This is actually the time to demand the absolute truth and justice that we want and that we continually pay for with our hard work and money only to watch it go to monstrous out of control governments. Yes, this is theater of the absurd but we should let it be known that our money and lives are paying for it and it’s not acceptable anymore.

Again, being neutral does not necessarily equate with being an observer. One can be neutral in the world and be active. Peaceful protests have this nature to them. (In fact Marie sent me a quick follow-up email noting an example of peaceful activism which I am inserting here):

Yesterday, 10/5, there was a march in Waikiki led by Native Hawaiian leaders to protest an ongoing dispute around building another telescope on top of Mauna Kea, a sacred mountain.  Around 10,000 people were expected.  I haven’t seen something this impassioned here for some time but it’s the kind of communicating that I think citizens will have to show in order to let government leaders know that people have reached their limits with just the absurdity you are talking about.  This protest isn’t just about a telescope- it’s also the Hawaiian frustration with government bullying; and there hasn’t been any violence, just firm determination from the kupuna (elders).

I certainly support this activism. The conscious protester knows that the ultimate battle is not for whether or not a telescope is erected on top of a sacred mountain, but whether or not the hearts and minds of growing numbers of people on the planet are being won over to the cause as a consequence of the protest. The cause, ultimately, is human sovereignty.

Now back to the original email:

And like Pres. Trump or not, none of this was brought forward until he appeared on the scene.  Let’s give him a chance.

I don’t have any problem with this, and I agree Trump appears to be looking into corruption and ‘draining the swamp’–and I’m coming from a neutral place. Which means I’m perfectly willing to let things play out as they are in the political arena. What I will not do, from a neutral place, is deem Trump the savior without whom we would be doomed. It is quite possible that Trump will make some positive changes and bringing hidden crimes to light, but that doesn’t mean that when all this is said done we will have ‘Heaven on Earth’ with Donald Trump at the helm. We still need to look beyond him, and, I believe, look beyond the currently constituted American Republic itself, to arrive at our destination.

Perhaps, the only way out of this swampy mess will be to offer pardons in exchange for admissions and start again from there.

Marie in Hawaii

This I would agree with, and it comes back to my point that we need the truth but we don’t necessarily need a particular form of ‘justice,’ if indeed we are looking to get to a place where all of humanity comes together as one.

The Takeaway

Neutrality is not antithetical to activism. And if that activism is to be conscious, then neutrality is essential. Without it, we think in terms of polarities, right versus wrong, good guys and bad guys, left and right, and we pit ourselves against each other, which actually thwarts our collective efforts towards greater unity. The truth alone is what can set us free, and neutrality does not suppress our hunger for the truth but only heightens our discernment of it. Joe Martino and I get together week after week on the Collective Evolution Show and model what we feel Conscious Activism looks like: having open conversations, challenging established ideas and staying connected with our highest aspirations as humans. Below is the introductory clip of our discussion of the showdown between Trump and Biden, and to see the full episode and hundreds more videos you can start a 7-day trial on CETV.

Our Biology Responds To Events Before They Even Happen

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Multiple experiments have shown strong evidence for precognition in several different ways. One of them comes in the form of activity within the heart and the brain responding to events before they even happen.

  • Reflect On:

    Do we have extra human capacities we are unaware of? Perhaps we can learn them, develop them, and use them for good. Perhaps when the human race is ready, we will start learning more.

Is precognition real? There are many examples suggesting that yes, it is. The remote viewing program conducted by the CIA in conjunction with Stanford University was a good example of that.  After its declassification in 1995, or at least partial declassification, the Department of Defense and those involved revealed an exceptionally high success rate:

To summarize, over the years, the back-and-forth criticism of protocols, refinement of methods, and successful replication of this type of remote viewing in independent laboratories has yielded considerable scientific evidence for the reality of the (remote viewing) phenomenon. Adding to the strength of these results was the discovery that a growing number of individuals could be found to demonstrate high-quality remote viewing, often to their own surprise… The development of this capability at SRI has evolved to the point where visiting CIA personnel with no previous exposure to such concepts have performed well under controlled laboratory conditions. (source)

The kicker? Part of remote viewing involves peering into future events as well as events that happened in the past.

It’s not only within the Department of Defense that we find this stuff, but a lot of science is emerging on this subject as well.

For example, a study (meta analysis) published in the journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience titled “Predicting the unpredictable: critical analysis and practical implications of predictive anticipatory activity” examined a number of experiments regarding this phenomenon that were conducted by several different laboratories. These experiments indicate that the human body can actually detect randomly delivered stimuli that occur 1-10 seconds in advance. In other words, the human body seems to know of an event and reacts to the event before it has occurred. What occurs in the human body before these events are physiological changes that are measured regarding the cardiopulmonary, the skin, and the nervous system.

A few years ago, the chief scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, Dr. Dean Radin, visited the scientists over at HearthMath Institute and shared the results of one of his studies. Radin is also one of multiple scientists who authored the paper above. These studies, as mentioned above, tracked the autonomic nervous system, physiological changes, etc.

Scientists at HeartMath Institute (HMI) added more protocols, which included measuring participants’ brain waves (EEG), their hearts’ electrical activity (ECG), and their heart rate variability (HRV).

As HMI explains:

Twenty-six adults experienced in using HeartMath techniques and who could sustain a heart-coherent state completed two rounds of study protocols approximately two weeks apart. Half of the participants completed the protocols after they intentionally achieved a heart-coherent state for 10 minutes. The other half completed the same procedures without first achieving heart coherence. Then they reversed the process for the second round of monitoring, with the first group not becoming heart-coherent before completing the protocols and the second group becoming heart-coherent before. The point was to test whether heart coherence affected the results of the experiment.

Participants were told the study’s purpose was to test stress reactions and were unaware of its actual purpose. (This practice meets institutional-review-board standards.) Each participant sat at a computer and was instructed to click a mouse when ready to begin.

The screen stayed blank for six seconds. The participant’s physiological data was recorded by a special software program, and then, one by one, a series of 45 pictures was displayed on the screen. Each picture, displayed for 3 seconds, evoked either a strong emotional reaction or a calm state. After each picture, the screen went blank for 10 seconds. Participants repeated this process for all 45 pictures, 30 of which were known to evoke a calm response and 15 a strong emotional response.

The Results

The results of the experiment were fascinating to say the least. The participants’ brains and hearts responded to information about the emotional quality of the pictures before the computer flashed them (random selection). This means that the heart and brain were both responding to future events. The results indicated that the responses happened, on average, 4.8 seconds before the computer selected the pictures.

How mind-altering is that?

Even more profound, perhaps, was data showing the heart received information before the brain. “It is first registered from the heart,” Rollin McCraty Ph.D. explained, “then up to the brain (emotional and pre-frontal cortex), where we can logically relate what we are intuiting, then finally down to the gut (or where something stirs).”

Another significant study (meta-analysis) that was published in Journal of Parapsychology by Charles Honorton and Diane C. Ferrari in 1989 examined a number of studies that were published between 1935 and 1987. The studies involved individuals’ attempts to predict “the identity of target stimuli selected randomly over intervals ranging from several hundred million seconds to one year following the individuals responses.” These authors investigated over 300 studies conducted by over 60 authors, using approximately 2 million individual trials by more than 50,000 people. (source)

It concluded that their analysis of precognition experiments “confirms the existence of a small but highly significant precognition effect. The effect appears to be repeatable; significant outcomes are reported by 40 investigators using a variety of methodological paradigms and subject populations. The precognition effect is not merely an unexplained departure from a theoretical chance baseline, but rather is an effect that covaries with factors known to influence more familiar aspects of human performance.” (source)

The Takeaway

“There seems to be a deep concern that the whole field will be tarnished by studying a phenomenon that is tainted by its association with superstition, spiritualism and magic. Protecting against this possibility sometimes seems more important than encouraging scientific exploration or protecting academic freedom. But this may be changing.”
 Cassandra Vieten, PhD and President/CEO at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (source)

We are living in a day and age where new information and evidence are constantly emerging, challenging what we once thought was real or what we think we know about ourselves as human beings.  It’s best to keep an open mind. Perhaps there are aspects of ourselves and our consciousness that have yet to be discovered. Perhaps if we learn and grow from these studies, they can help us better ourselves and others.

The 5G Health Summit Starts Tomorrow (June 1st) – Reserve Your Free Spot Here

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A global online summit featuring doctors, scientists & activists addressing the health concerns of 5G technology and what people can do about it is set to take place the first week of June and it's free to sign up.

  • Reflect On:

    Why are safety concerns that've been published in peer-reviewed scientific journals called a "conspiracy theory?" Why is this idea ridiculed? Why don't our federal health regulatory agencies simply to some health safety testing before rolling it out?

Some of the world’s leading scientists, doctors and activists are gathering for a free online summit that begins on Monday June 1st and will run for approximately one week. The summit will dive into the health concerns of 5G technology, and why it’s a concern and what people can do about it. The summit is completely free to sign up and watch, and you can do so here.

We’ve also put together an E-book titled “Is 5G Safe? An Easy to Understand Guide” summarizing the published peer-reviewed research that is raising concerns about electromagnetic radiation that’s emitted from our favourite wireless devices, cell phones and more, as well as novel 5G technology.  It’s a great resource that you can share with family or friends who desire to look at the proof, research, evidence and concerns that thousands of doctors and scientists have been and are creating awareness about all over the globe.  We wrote it in language designed to be simple and factual.

Once you sign up for the summit, you get access to the free E-book.

It’s quite strange that any researched journalist could dismiss the health concerns of 5G technology, as well as 4G and 3G, when there are nearly 10,000 peer-reviewed scientific studies that raise cause for concern. A study published in 2019 in Frontiers in Public Health is one of many that raises concerns about 5G technology, explaining how there is no safety testing, and that in vivo and in vitro studies regarding this type of technology and it’s predecessors have shown that it’s harmful to human health, even at levels below current “safety” limits.

At the end of the day, whether you believe this type of technology is safe or you don’t, would it not be in the best interests of everybody to have the  technology go through some type of required safety testing? Shouldn’t any technology that has any sort of biological effect be put through safety testing? Why has there not been any safety testing?

In December 2018, US. Senator Richard Blumenthal and U.S. Representative Anna G. Eshoo (CA-18) sent a letter to FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr seeking answers regarding potential health risks posed by new 5G wireless technology. At  a hearing, that took place last year, Blumenthal criticized Carr for failing to provide answers, and did the same thing to other industry representatives that were in attendance for not putting the technology through safety testing. You can watch a clip of that hearing and read more about it, here.

How can our federal health regulatory agencies approve products that are clearly a cause for concern?

This is why the summit is going to be such a great resource. It will answer many questions, and again, let people know what they can do about it!

Dr. Buttar Reveals Declassified Government Report Related to 5G Dangers

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Dr. Rashid Butter discusses a declassified report on millimetre wave technology and the effects it has on human health. These are the same waves used in 5G technology.

  • Reflect On:

    If we already know these waves cause harm to human health, why do we use them in airport scanners? Why are we about to roll out an entire wireless network based on these technologies?

People often say 5G hasn’t been tested, and to some extent that is true. But given 5G uses millimetre wave technology and that technology has been studied for quite some time, it has obviously been tested by those who have worked on them. So why hasn’t this information been widely released? Why are we not looking at the available data on millimetre wave technology as it relates to 5G?

Recently we came across 7 Russian studies that were summarized in a report declassified through the CIA. These studies were declassified in 2012 and marked “For Goverment Use Only.” From what you can gather very quickly in this report, the conclusions should shut down 5G rollout instantly. At least until someone can show, beyond any reasonable doubt, that this technology is safe.

Let’s have a quick look at how this report was concluded:

“Thus the conducted investigations indicate high biological activity and an unfavourable influence of millimeter radiowaves on the organism. The expression of the biological reactions increased with an increase of the period of iridation and depended on individual characteristics of the organism.”

What this translates to in plain English is, millimetre-wave frequencies do affect the human body negatively, and the longer the exposure, the more damage that occurs. Since 5G uses millimetre waves and is set to push a constant barrage of frequency on humans anywhere they go, this would mean sustained wave exposure, and thus inevitable biological damage.

Incredibly, these are the same wave technologies used in airport fully body scanners that we have been raising awareness about for years. It’s important to note, you CAN opt out of going through those scanners.

Dr. Rashid Buttar has given an incredible interview where he goes page by page as to exactly what this declassified CIA research reveals. The report summarizes 7 studies on the effects of millimeter-wave radiation levels between 37-60GHz. These levels are “safe” according to government, but that is NOT what the science says.

As we have said for the last year and a half, now is a potent time to understand the dangers of 5G and work to stop its rollout. This interview is a must listen. Click here to watch Dr. Rashid Buttar’s interview.


Scroll down the page when you register and you will see Dr. Buttar’s interview.

As we can tell in our world right now, a ton of truth is coming to the surface, the environment to create change is ripe. If we can stay grounded, in our hearts and avoid descending into hate, we can TRULY make a big difference here.
