- The Facts:
Wilfred Burchett, John Pilger and Julian Assange are all Australian journalists who have gone against the grain, and provided information and a perspective to the world that many would not have seen otherwise.
- Reflect On:
Are journalists censored and threatened today because they are actually a threat to 'national security,' or rather a threat to power elitist and corporate agendas?
Australia has produced extraordinary journalists across three generations: Wilfred Burchett (deceased in 1983), John Pilger (80 years old but still active) and Julian Assange (48 years old, currently in London’s Belmarsh prison).
Each of these journalists made unique contributions to our understanding of the world. Although Australia is part of the western world, each of these journalists exposed and criticized Western foreign policy.

Wilfred Burchett lived from 1911 to 1983. He was a farm boy and his experience in the depression shaped his dislike of oligarchs and preference for the poor. He went to Europe trying to volunteer for Republicans in the Spanish Civil War but that did not work out. Instead, he assisted Jews escaping Nazi Germany.
Burchett became a journalist by accident. Having seen the reality in Germany, he started writing many letters to newspaper editors. One of the editors took note of his fluid writing style and intensity. They contacted him to ask if he would like to report for them. Thus began a forty year writing career.
He covered WW2, first stationed with British troops in India then Burma. Then he covered the Pacific campaign stationed with U.S. troops. He was the first international journalist to report on Hiroshima after the atomic bomb. He evaded US military restrictions to go to Hiroshima and see reality for himself. In his story “The Atomic Plague”, published in the London Daily Express, Burchett said, “I write this as a warning to the world” and “Doctors fall as they work”. Immediately the US launched a campaign to smear his reputation and deny the validity of his story. The US military was intent on preventing people from knowing the long term effects of nuclear radiation.
Burchett’s report from Hiroshima was broadcast worldwide and called the “scoop of the century”. It exemplified his career based on first-hand observation and experience.
Over his 40 year career, he reported the other side of the story from the Soviet Union, China, Korea and Vietnam. He wrote thousands of articles and over 35 books. On China, he wrote “China’s Feet Unbound” in 1952. Two decades later he wrote (with Rewi Alley) “China: The Quality of Life”.
Burchett wrote “Vietnam: The Inside Story of a Guerrilla War” (1965) “My War with the CIA: The Memoirs of Prince Norodom Sihanouk”(1974), “Grasshoppers and Elephants: Why Vietnam Fell” (1977) and then “Catapult to Freedom: The Survival of the Vietnamese People” (1978).
Burchett’s life, experiences and observations are brilliantly recorded in his autobiography “At the Barricades: Forty Years on the Cutting Edge of History” (1980). They reveal the hardscrabble youth and early years, the leftist sympathies, the decades of journalistic work based on first-hand observations.
Burchett was vilified by the establishment political leaders in Australia. His Australian passport was taken, the government refused to issue him a new one and he was barred from entering Australia. Even his children were denied their Australian citizenship. Finally, after 17 years, Wilfred Burchett’s citizenship and passport were restored when Gough Whitlam became Prime Minister in 1972.
With his unassuming and affable manner, Wilfred Burchett became friends with leaders such as Ho Chi Minh, Norodom Sihanouk, and Chou en Lai. Bertrand Russell said, “One man, Wilfred Burchett, alerted Western public opinion to the nature of this war and the struggle of the Vietnamese people.”
This interview gives a glimpse into the character and personality of Wilfred Burchett.
John Pilger is another extraordinary Australian journalist. After starting journalism in the early ’60s, he became a war correspondent covering Vietnam, Cambodia, Bangladesh and Biafra. He worked 25 years at London’s Daily Mirror and then had a regular fortnightly column for 23 years at the New Statesman.
His first documentary, “The Quiet Mutiny”, depicted US soldiers in Vietnam resisting their officers and the war. In 1974, when Palestine was often unmentionable, he produced “Palestine is Still the Issue”. Nineteen years later, he wrote the second part and described how Palestine is still the issue.
John Pilger has written/edited over ten books and made over 50 films. He told the story of atrocities in Pol Pot’s Cambodia with “Year Zero“. He exposed Indonesia’s stranglehold on East Timor in “Death of a Nation: The Timor Conspiracy”. In a four year investigation, he showed how working-class victims of the drug thalidomide had been excluded from a settlement with the drug company.
John Pilger exposed uncomfortable truths about his home country and its treatment of aboriginal people. He did this through films including “The Secret Country: First Australians Fight Back” (1985), “Welcome to Australia” (1999), and “Utopia: An Epic Story of Struggle and Resistance” (2013). He gives more history and detail in the book “A Secret Country” (1992).
In 2002 Pilger produced and movie and book titled “The New Rulers of the World” revealing the grotesque inequality in this “globalized” world where a few individuals and corporations have more power and wealth than entire countries.
In 2016 Pilger came out with the urgent and prescient video “The Coming War with China”.
More recently he produced “The Dirty War on the NHS” which documents the stealth campaign to privatize the UK’s National Health System. Many of John Pilger’s films can be seen at his website johnpilger.com .
In the 1960s and ’70s, Pilger’s brave and bold journalism received many awards and he was twice recognized as Journalist of the Year. But in recent years, there has been less acceptance as media has become more homogenized and controlled. In 2018 Pilger said, “My written journalism is no longer welcome – probably it’s last home was The Guardian, which three years ago got rid of people like me and others in pretty much a purge …”
Harold Pinter, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, says “John Pilger unearths, with steely attention, the facts, the filthy truth. and tells it like it is.
The third extraordinary Australian journalist is Julian Assange. He was born on 3 July 1971. He became a skilled computer programmer and hacker as a teenager. Later he later studied mathematics and physics at Melbourne University. According to one of his math teachers he was an exceptional student but he clearly had other tasks and priorities.
Assange has edited or co-authored at least four books. For three years he worked with Australian journalist and co-author Suelette Dreyfus to write “Underground : Tales of Hacking, Madness and Obsession in the Electronic Frontier”. First published in 1997, the Sydney Morning Herald called it “astonishing”. Rolling Stone described it as “An entirely original focus on the bizarre lives and crimes of an extraordinary group of teenage hackers.”
In 2012, Assange produced the TV series “The World Tomorrow”. Over 12 segments, he interviews Ecuador President Rafael Correa, the current President of Pakistan Imran Khan, the leader of Hezbollah Hasan Nasrallah, leaders in the Occupy movement, Noam Chomsky, Tariq Ali and many more.
In 2013, Assange and WikiLeaks produced the movie Mediastan. It shows WikiLeaks’ global travels to meet publishers of the secret documents. In 2014 OR Books published “When WikiLeaks met Google”. It consists of a discussion between Julian Assange and Google founder Eric Schmidt plus two companions. Assange writes a 51-page introduction which puts the discussion in context: how Google and other internet giants have become part of US foreign policy establishment.
In 2015 Assange edited “The WikiLeaks files: the world according to the US Empire” and in 2016 the book “Cypherpunks: Freedom and the Future of the Internet” was published. Assange and three other computer experts discuss the future of the internet and whether computers will emancipate or enslave us. One reviewer says, “These guys are really getting at the heart of some very big issues that practically no one (outside of Cypherpunk circles) is thinking about.”
But what makes Assange extraordinary is his work as editor in chief and publisher of WikiLeaks. Following are a few examples of information they have conveyed to the public:
* Corruption by family and associates of Kenyan leader Daniel Arap Moi.
* Corruption at Kaupthing Bank in the Iceland financial crisis
* Dumping of toxic chemicals in Ivory Coast.
* Killing of Reuters journalists and over 10 Iraqi civilians by US Apache attack helicopter in “Collateral Murder” video.
* 92,000 documents on the war in Afghanistan (and civilian casualties previously hidden)
* 400,000 documents on the war in Iraq (including reports showing the US military ignoring torture by their Iraqi allies)
* corruption in Tunisia (helping spark the Arab Spring)
* NSA spying on German leader Merkel, Brazilian leader Roussef, French presidents (Sarkozy, Hollande, Chirac) and more.
* secret agreements in the proposed Trans Pacific Partnership
* emails and files from the US Democratic National Committee
* CIA spying and other tools (“Vault 7”).
Julian Assange has received much recognition: Sam Adams Award, Time’s Person of the Year, Le Monde Person of the Year, Martha Gellhorn Prize for Journalism, Sydney Peace Foundation Gold Medal, Serena Shim Award and others.
But Assange has incurred the wrath and enmity of the US government. The “Collateral Damage” video and war logs exposed the brutal reality of US aggression and occupation. Kofi Annan, former Secretary-General of the United Nations, said the US invasion of Iraq violated international law. But there has been no accountability.
In response to WikiLeaks’ revelations, the United States has ignored the crimes and gone after the messenger who revealed the crimes. Thus Julian Assange was confined to the Ecuador Embassy for 7 years and is now in Belmarsh maximum-security prison. The US wants him extradited to the US where he has been charged with 18 counts of “Illegally Obtaining, Receiving and Disclosing Classified Information”. The extradition hearing is scheduled to begin on 24 February 2020.
Across Three Generations
Australia should be proud of these exceptional native sons. Each one has made huge contributions to educating the public about crucial events.
Wilfred Burchett reported from the “other side” when the West was waging war on Korea, Vietnam, Laos, and China. He was demonized and even called “Public Enemy Number One” during the Cold War. But those who read his reports and many books found an accurate and objective writer. His many books stand the test of time.
From the 60s to today, John Pilger has told stories that were never or rarely told. He has exposed facts and drawn conclusions which shame or should shame powerful forces, whether in the U.K., U.S.A. or Australia. He has documented the real heroes who are otherwise ignored.
Julian Assange is from the new generation. He has reported and published secret information about military-political power on “this side”. He has revealed truths that powerful forces do not want the public to know, even when it is being done in their name.
Now Assange is in prison and in danger of being extradited to the United States. If this is allowed to happen, it will mark a crushing setback and perhaps the death of independent investigative journalism.
John Pilger is a major supporter of Julian Assange. So is the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Torture, Nils Melzer. In a blockbuster interview, he says “I have never seen a comparable case….The Swedish authorities … intentionally left him in limbo. Just imagine being accused of rape for nine-and-a-half years by an entire state apparatus and the media without ever being given the chance to defend yourself because no charges have ever been filed.” He goes to describe reading the original Swedish documents, saying “I could hardly believe my eyes…. a rape had never taken place at all…. the woman’s testimony was later changed by the Stockholm police… I have all the documents in my possession, the emails, the text messages.”
Melzer describes the refusal of governments to comply with his requests. He sums up what is happening and the significance. “A show trial is to be used to make an example of Julian Assange….. Four democratic countries joined forces – the U.S., Ecuador, Sweden, and the U.K. – to leverage their power to portray one man as a monster so that he could be later burned at the stake without any outcry. The case is a huge scandal and represents the failure of Western rule of law. If Julian Assange is convicted, it will be a death sentence for freedom of the press.”
The three extraordinary Australian journalists were all rebels and all international. They all depended on freedom of the press which is now at stake.

What Do We Do In The Face Of Oppression?
- The Facts:
Tensions around the world have reached a boiling point it seems. People, from different backgrounds and countries have had enough of oppression and corrupt systems are being pushed to the brink.
- Reflect On:
Is it time humanity rises up beyond the need for a ruling elite to call the shots in their lives?
The past few weeks I have not even had a clear idea as to what to even say about the state of the world. I get feelings and explore them, but what I’m observing is often unclear and points to a society that is having a multitude of issues surface at once. Most of the time, I feel like things just need to play out as they are, as opposed to going back to “normal.” Things being “normal” keeps us blind to a society built to oppress the masses, and humanity has more than enough of normal to know we don’t thrive in “normal” – we simply survive. Do we want to simply survive or do we want to thrive? It’s time to face some stuff we have been avoiding about ourselves for a long time.
When COVID-19 struck, it had all the hallmarks of an event being blown up by media and government to push forth agendas. False and ever-changing numbers, retractions that go unnoticed by the public, fear propaganda, censorship of experts with a different narrative, and so on. The whole event was one big attempt to use a virus not much different than the flu to bring about things in our world that don’t truly serve the public, but that instead serve the elite who own and control society.
Amongst COVID comes the senseless killing of a man by police officers. When George Floyd’s name began hitting the news cycle it was a sad moment as yet again another human dies at the hands of people that are supposedly there to protect people. The video evidence is clear, the public servant killed a man through the use of force, regardless of how many times Floyd said “I can’t breathe.”
Yet again, I found myself sifting through the never-ending differences of opinions and ideas as to what is happening, what happened, who is to blame, and what should happen from here on out. I’ve listened to videos from people all over the place, trying to get a clear idea as to what people are feeling so as to make sense of what solutions can be brought to the table. My passion in life is to help bring change to this world, change that starts within each of us. In that process, I find it important to get clear on issues so that we can get clear on what actions we can take.
One of the worst things we can do when trying to solve a problem that exists is take actions we think are helping when in fact they are not. This causes us to stop looking for solutions as we think we have already found it. Why it has taken me so long to figure out what to say is because I can’t get a clear idea within myself, or from the many, many voices I have listened to on this issue.
I see trends starting, the black screen on Instagram for example, where we stand in silence, apparently in unity, but is this solving anything? I don’t doubt that people’s intentions are beautiful, I question whether we are simply doing something that is trendy or whether we are once again staying silent while people’s voices should be heard. It reminds me of voting in our current modern times… Voting is being silent while you believe your voice is heard. Non-compliance, on an organized and collective level, is how your voice gets heard.
As an organizer on the ground in Oakland. I don’t need y’all Blacking out IGs. I need you reposting our asks of the community. I need you reposting our words and politics. Listen to us who on the ground doing the work. #BlackOutTuesday
— Free Jalil Muntaqim (@BlakeDontCrack) June 2, 2020
One thing I’ve learned over the years doing the work I do is that current events are often not simple to explain. Sometimes there are details that go untold, get intentionally left out, politics that get in the way, social engineering involvement, etc. And the way we hear about these issues from mainstream media is highly calculated. The same people that are piling bricks at the protest sites during these recent protests are likely the same people pushing racial divides through mainstream media. They want the public to look dangerous and out of control. They want to push already tense emotions into a state of rage so that people act out and it calls in the need for more control and crackdowns. This is how an oppressive infrastructure of rule functions.
But don’t think this is the first time objects have been laid at a protest site to cause violence, it’s a common tool used in protests all around the world. When the G20 was in Toronto, I was covering it as a journalist. I had my camera and was positioned at the front lines of the protest. Since I was about 100 meters away from the front lines to get a full shot, I was further down the road and could see how police were preparing for the coming crowds.
Police backed off, they parked cars in the middle of streets set up for a photoshoot. They had plain-clothed, mask-wearing people amongst them. The same people that ran into the crowds, destroyed business, smashed police cars, lit them on fire, and then ran back behind police lines safely. At the G20 summit in Toronto, the police stoked the violence they created it and they took part it in – OTHER OFFICERS KNEW and went along with it.
What does this tell you about the relationship police have with the communities they are supposed to protect? Are they united with them? Or united with someone else? Who are they united with? Why do governments do nothing to change this? What does that say about the actual relationship government has with people? Does it show they truly work in the favor of the people? Does it show they are providing a society where people can thrive? Why do we support such an oppressive society?
Why is it that in the US, 99% of cases where police kill someone, they go uncharged? It doesn’t matter if the dead person is black white, brown, yellow, or green, they aren’t charged. Why?
Extremely similar to the case of George Floyd in almost every detail is the story of Tony Timpa, one most people don’t know anything about. Tony called 911 for help when he was having a reaction to drugs. Released footage from Dallas police shows police officers mocking Timpa while he is handcuffed and while one officer has a knee on his back for 14 minutes. As Timpa struggles to live, the officers make fun of Timpa’s repeated cries for help. Timpa said he couldn’t breathe and felt they were going to kill him. He pleaded more than 30 times. Eventually, one officer notes that he appears to be “out cold.” They then joke that he’s merely asleep and try to wake him: “It’s time for school. Wake up!” One officer mimics a teen saying: “I don’t want to go to school! Five more minutes, Mom!” Tony dies, and even when that is confirmed, the cops are still laughing as if his death was a joke.
Timpa’s story is strikingly similar to Floyd’s. Non-dangerous men are met by police, they are posing no threat to police, they are then murdered by police while all police around don’t seem to care.
Similar to Floyd’s case and others, in Timpa’s case we saw the city of Dallas and the Dallas County officials fight for months so the footage would not be released to the public. Eventually, the records came out. The three officers involved, Kevin Mansell, Danny Vasquez, and Dustin Dillard, were indicted by a grand jury in 2017 on charges of misdemeanor deadly conduct, three months after media began publishing investigations into Timpa’s death.
Dallas County District Attorney John Creuzot then dismissed charges on all three officers. They each only received a few months of administrative leave.
Tony Timpa is a white male.
I’m not telling you about this because he was white, I’m telling you about this because we have to ask why we don’t hear about these things when they are not politically useful for elites to create a divide. Hundreds of non-black Americans are killed every year and no justice is served. Why were the police protected? Why wasn’t this a huge story? Why did the police try to hide what they did?
We have an epidemic of police brutality, black people more affected, but everyone affected, and yet we are unclear how to stop it. I do not think it’s a good thing that black people have to feel unsafe in their own city because of what police might do. Racist tendencies on the police force should be weeded out by removing those officers. In situations that are life and death, we can’t take chances. But if I’m being perfectly honest, I can’t say that I feel safe with police either. Nor do I trust government who is constantly working to oppress its people. I’ve had many run ins with cops in my day, never have I committed a crime, and only once or twice were those run ins a positive experience. I’ve witnessed innocent people be beat up and taken to jail by police, why? Still to this day I don’t know.
It’s true that police are not running around hunting down citizens to do bad things to, but there is still way too much injustice taking place towards citizens, and we can’t keep turning a blind eye.
We must continue to speak out on racism and help others understand their ways aren’t supporting a loving community. We must begin to recognize the even bigger picture in that we live in a society that is socially engineered to keep us divided and enslaved to a ruling elite. This elite is who police protect. This elite doesn’t want people to see them, doesn’t want people to unite snd move beyond the dynamic of giving our power to them while thinking others in society are our enemies.
The statistics in the US show that police are killing large numbers of people from all races, yet we only hear of stories that fuel racial divide. Why? These killings are all going on without ay accountability, why? We get coaxed into focusing heavily on issues that will divide us by class, race, gender, and so forth – all in effect making it so we cannot unite.
Our company, CE, who has been reporting on the actions of this ruling elite ad attempting to unite people through love and action for over 11 years has been silenced, kicked off of platforms, defamed and has had our revenue cut by over a million dollars per year. The attack on our company by deep state-aligned platforms like Facebook, Instagram, YouTube ad Google has taken our team from 14 down to 3. That’s how much power goes into silencing voices that go against the divisive forces that enslave and oppress us all because we do not come together, unite and move into non-compliance with their systems. We instead ask their systems for justice. How does this make any sense?
It’s time for a new approach, a new story.
Neutrality Is Key
People confuse this a lot. they often feel neutrality means you don’t stand for something, or neutrality means you don’t care about anything, this isn’t what neutrality is to me. Neutrality is about moving beyond the divisive tools that pull us out of clarity. Moving beyond things like race wars, gender, pride, patriotism, political sides, religious beliefs shaping how we see events. It means going back to seeing yourself as a human, connected to everyone and everything. Heck, quantum physics and emerging science supports the very fact that we are inherently connected to everything ad thus connected to oneness – that oneness is neutral in that it does not define itself by emotions and beliefs.
At the moment, many black feel fed up with how they are treated in the United States – and they very well should be. I can’t tell you how often someone might deal with a racial prejudice because I am not them, but I am sure it happens. On top of that, people all over the world have become completely fed up with a system of mass oppression that backs billions of people into a corner, and they have had enough of it.
What was the coronavirus lockdown? It was an overreaching lockdown about a virus that is not dangerous. It took away rights, freedoms, and free speech. It collapsed economies and will strip billions in wealth from the people. This event too boiled tensions.
This systemic collective oppression goes beyond countries, it’s a coordinated effort that affects countries all over the world. I feel like what we are seeing right now is the boiling over of all of these tensions within people, partly fueled by media narratives, and partly fueled by the deep knowing that we live in infrastructural systems that are designed to enslave and oppress the masses everywhere.
These are systems run by an extremely small portion of the population that do not have humanity’s best interest at heart, ad who are being exposed at a record rate this past year. Often called conspiracy theories, people’s knowledge about who the deep state is and how it functions is growing rapidly as we enter into a crucial phase of awakening I call Breaking The Illusion. It’s where we begin to note that the world doesn’t work the way we thought it does. We begin to see that our education systems, media and politicians have been fundamentally lying to us about almost everything.
But before we get into anger and hatred about that fact, let’s recall the next step of awakening I call Awakening Neutrality. This is where we begin to see that this doesn’t have to be a fight to perpetuate more oppression, but instead a decision to see what’s happening, and move beyond it without needing those oppressive systems to do all the change for us. It’s about choosing love ad action from love, vs simply getting angry and wanting a fight or revenge.
The Choice Is Ours
In my eyes, we are living in an epidemic of disconnection. An epidemic of division. Depending on the day of the week, we put on a new hat as to how we divide ourselves and on what issue. We don’t look at one another as humans. We don’t see the beauty and the love that we all have, we are instead trained to see all of our difference, and to focus so heavily on them that they overtake how we identify as beings.
The more we buy into the social engineering of today, the more we buy into hate and division – not love. We are then left deeply confused, all while thinking we are informed. This happens because we’ve become addicted to a fast-paced society where we are coaxed into getting stuck in a literal biochemical state where we cannot think clearly or function properly. We get trapped in our sympathetic nervous system and literally stay in stress mode all the time. It arouses our emotions, clouds our thinking and moves us into danger/survival mode… even when there isn’t a threat.
What type of world will this create? How will we thrive in a world like this? How will people act in a state like this? How will police act in a state like this? One literally cannot gain clarity from this state. And yet from this state we are making decisions, passing judgments, voting, and engaging in trying to make change. All of this from a position where we are emotionally out of touch with reality and unclear in our minds. Again, what type of world will this create?
I write this and cannot say I’m clear on what we should do. I don’t know how to stop police from disproportionately killing black people just as I am not sure how to get them to stop killing people in general. I can say we need to be more loving, more connected, and begin seeing that which unites us. I can say stop listening to mainstream media, messages of hate, and to not fall for the social conditioning of elites who are engineering a full-scale society of mass oppression, but will we consider that? Will we add to our own thoughts to the table? Will we engage in important discussions from a place of oneness instead of just our perspective?
That I believe is on us… because government and mainstream media sure as heck isn’t going to offer anything of value to this conversation. It’s time for the people to unite, become self-responsible, grounded in love, and organize.
A YouTuber by the name of Young Pharaoh shares some interesting insights on why narratives are shaped the way they are in these cases.
Our Biology Responds To Events Before They Even Happen
- 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 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)
“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.”

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
- 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!
