Eye of The Storm Series #11: Meltdown in Progress!

Hello everysoul!

There is so much going on right now and so many outstandingly important issues that have come to my attention in the past 12 days - all of which you will find of course in this book-size compilation (my largest ever, by far!) with over 87,500 words and a mind-boggling 600 links included, that I frankly don't know where to begin with in this intro comment, except perhaps to suggest to you to make time to explore at least what feels most important to you. There are some key HOT issues that needed a special focus treatment which is why you'll find several separate sections below. Here is the list with an embedded link if you want to get there immediately in the archived copy of this compilation:


You will also find the other usual sections plus MANY personal comments interspersed throughout it.

There is one issue that has been a lot lately in the lamestream media and it is the so-called "Quantitative easing" that will most likely lead to a radical devaluation of the US dollar, a major game-changer to say the least.

If you go at http://news.google.com and search with US dollar devaluation - such as Enter the era of dollar devaluation - you will find tons of related articles. The crux of the matter is that the US dollar value has remained relatively stable for so long because - as many of you undoubtedly know - it was used by LOTS of other nations to trade - to be paid for the resources they sell internationally. But now because the Federal Reserve is pumping/printing so much fictitious new money out of thin air in an effort to lower the dollar value to make US products more attractive/cheaper to other countries so as to boost US exports, other countries (especially China) are deeply unhappy to see the value of the huge stash of US dollars they have loses value and are seriously considering, in conjunction with several other countries, to replace the dollar with another more stable global reserve currency (probably to be based on precious metals) not tied to the vagaries of the US economy or of any other country for that matter. The moment this shift to a new international currency pillar happens, and it is now rumored to be a matter of days or weeks, the US dollar will start falling precipitously, not to mention the value of everything tied to it and there will be a worldwide stampede to convert one's US dollars to the new internationally-supported benchmark currency, thus precipitation hyper inflation in the US and in several economically-connected countries, and a collapse of the US dollar's value. The buying power of US citizens, within the US borders, could soon become akin to the situation in Zimbabwe which will translate into an abysmal drop in the standard of living of its 300+ millions citizens, many of them used to live an affluent life on borrowed money. It could also - hopefully - be our saving grace as it might impel the whole world to shift our global economy away from a greed-driven monetary system that benefits only the few to the detriment of the vast majority of humans and of the entire planetary ecosystems, towards a more balanced system that would be impervious to insiders' scheming and money traders vying to game the system to their sole advantage, and also more dedicated to benefiting the whole and facilitating our global transition towards a truly sustainable, saner and fairer civilization.

And on that hopeful note, I'll invite you to plunge into this compilation, with the usual suggestion that whatever may pump you up emotionally needs to be viewed from the long-term higher perspective that all that is happening is part of a vast transition into our new higher dimensional home. Remember as you read about all the troubling information on the numerous challenges we face that looks like a global growing chaos, that the cells of a caterpillar also go through a chaotic phase during its metamorphosis into a gracious butterfly.

That's what we are going through now - hence the title of this compilation - and much of the inner working of our current civilization is going to be morphing at lightning speed, with the caveat, of course, that we are to be the active agents of change willingly offering ourselves to Creator Source to act as instruments of its Omniversal Will, because THAT is the ultimate reality we are finally remembering...

Wednesday, November 24, 2010 is NATIONAL OPT-OUT DAY!
It's the day ordinary citizens stand up for their rights, stand up for liberty, and protest the federal government's desire to virtually strip us naked or submit to an "enhanced pat down" that touches people's breasts and genitals in an aggressive manner. You should never have to explain to your children, "Remember that no stranger can touch or see your private area, unless it's a government employee, then it's OK." The goal of National Opt Out Day is to send a message to our lawmakers that we demand change. We have a right to privacy and buying a plane ticket should not mean that we're guilty until proven innocent. This day is needed because many people do not understand what they consent to when choosing to fly.Here are the details: (...) Why? The government should not have the ability to virtually strip search anyone it wants without cause. The problem has been compounded in that if you do not want to go through the body scanner, the TSA has made the alternative perhaps even worse by instituting "enhanced" pat downs. There are reports from travelers across the country about how the TSA now touches the genitals and private areas of men, women and children in a much more aggressive manner. We do not believe the government has a right to see you naked or aggressively touch you just because you bought an airline ticket. How? By saying "I opt out" when told to go through the bodying imaging machines and submitting to a pat down. Also, be sure to have your pat down by TSA in full public - do not go to the back room when asked. Every citizen must see for themselves how the TSA treats law-abiding citizens. CLIP - NOTE: If tens of thousands of people actually decide to op out this day, this would bug down so much the screening procedure that every plane will get delayed and the entire air travel industry will slow to a crawl, thus possibly leading to a change to this fascist, inhumane treatment of law-abiding citizens. In fact, every day should be a nation-wide opt-out day until the authorities relent, thus stopping the relentless fall into an ever more fascist police state policies. MUCH more on this below in SPECIAL FOCUS ON THE CREEPING FASCISM AT US AIRPORTS - but you may want to check this short 2 min video right away to understand the issue: Video of Man Refusing TSA Pat-Down Goes Viral and read A rallying cry for security-wary passengers: don't 'touch my junk' - MAKE SURE also to reach the end of this section to read the excerpts of Big Brother: Biometric Tyranny and DNA Databases and Orwellian Scenario: The "Total Control Society" Is Here: Iris Scanners and also America’s Devolution Into Dictatorship 3 ARTICLES IN WHICH WE ARE GETTING TO GRASP THE SIZE OF THE ORWELLIAN ICEBERG WE ARE DEALING WITH - A MUST READ!

AND THIS JUST SENT TO ME: End of Liberty Trailer AND THEN WATCH IT ALL AT http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQv-sdMCClQ - WHEN YOU HAVE A MOMENT - complete civilization collapse imminent in the US ...

UK up for sale to Foundation X - Lord James of Blackheath speaks to Sky (TV interview) Jaw Dropping!
For a speculative analysis of this truly astounding story (is it a hoax or for real?) check HERE. The Belfast Telegraph newspaper <http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/local-national/northern-ireland/conservative-peer-lord-james-of-blackheath-im-a-money-washer-not-a-money-launderer-14995248.html">has covered this - amongst others.

British House of Lords (1 Nov 2010) - Transcript of speech available HERE
Lord James of Blackheath describes a Private "Foundation" which has more money than all the governments of the world put together. This "Foundation X" willing to bail out the world "for nothing". What a lovely sounding old Lord this man is BUT is he seriously this naive?Nevertheless, why is all this so top secret if it is a real, honest offer by a Private Group of people who should never have achieved such an amount of money in the first place (for what I hope are obvious reasons). Further, if such a Foundation exists (which it certainly seems to) then they can only have gained this amount of wealth over a very significant period of time (thinking in decades to centuries here) and it will have been, without a shadow of a doubt, ill-gotten. So the question is: Why don't we simply hold a gun at their heads fully loaded and say "Hand it over! What's preventing you?" Because if they need to talk to a Head of state before they do it then there must simply be conditions. And lastly, WHO are these top 6 people of the world? You may say "it said top 6 security clearance" but so what? How many nations are there? So HOW can there be only 6 people with a Worldwide top security clearance? From what nations and what has security got to do with it? Check also Peer Claims 'Foundation X' Will Pay UK Debt

"Again, and again, we see the hand of the Rothschilds. Ashley Mote is then set up and accused of fraud.So what exactly is the Global Security Fund? And what was/is it’s purpose? Well, believe it or not, the so-called ‘Global Security Fund’, consisting of off-balance sheet USG (U.S. Government) funds originally worth $27.5 trillion raised from 200+ international banks, is a fund which was set up to finance the ‘management’ of the ‘post-Cold War’ environment. The accumulated value of these funds, held offshore in bank accounts linked to Title 18, Section 6 US Government intelligence corporations established under President Reagan’s Executive Order 12333, is now believed to exceed $70 trillion. The original $27.5 trillion was raised from the 200+ banks at a deep discount for 20 years at 7.5% per annum. Introducing LEO WANTA: Particularly big when various foreign countries are rooting for the “Wanta Plan” to rescue the U.S. like the Marshall Plan did for Europe post WWII, because it will help save them as well. This is a key event of our lives going on right here: the missing 70 TRILLION dollars connected to the criminal endeavors of Clinton-Bush crime team Presidents with the Federal Reserve. That side of the group wants a destruction of the U.S. to continue the NWO. The other side–all the rest of U.S. with many foreign countries and banks–wants the injection of the U.S. 70 trillion that would wipe out U.S. debt in literally weeks. If the U.S. is taken down, the nefarious blocking of the “Wanta Plan” shows that it is intentional."

"There is ZERO chance that the Reds will do anything positive for PrezO ... they surely will not deal with Climate Change when they don't even believe it exists ... and they don't believe it exists because their oligarchic buddies have told them to quash it 'cuz they'd have to pay too much for carbon credits and all their re-election campaign monies would need to be appropriately decreased -- this election was expensive for their corporate buddies: total cost was a nauseating $4 Billion, and this was just the Midterms ... Also, the Reds ARE the warmongers, they don't want a penny of DoD's budget cut, their motto is War Is Good for the economy ... eg: for the new warplane, they have funded building TWO engines for each aircraft, even tho DoD told them they don't NEED or WANT two engines! but they're being manufactured in one powerful Senator's State, and HE insists there be TWO ... Republicans want to do away with ALL 'entitlements', like SocialSecurity/MediCare/Medicaid, along with eliminating -- ELIMINATING! -- the Dept of Education (they say families [ie, the mother!] should stay home and home-school the kids -- while THEY send their kids to the best private schools and universities -- less competition for THEIR kids, see?) ... they use people as their corporate buddies do, to be milked, then thrown away when empty: send the 'volunteers' off to war, then cut their Veterans'Assistance programs when they get back with their heads all crazy and their limbs missing -- shift for yourselves, soldiers, you're on yr own ... that's one reason why The Wars haven't ended already:  to bring home 150,000 men and women who'd be unable to find jobs, and who just might've lost their home to foreclosure while they were off 'keeping us safe' would be horrific on this already-collapsed and downward-spiraling economy ... From homo sapiens to homo dementare, indeed ... So let's see what you've included this Time! Thanks for being there and for your unflagging dedication."

- ilyes (ilyes@earthlink.net) commenting on the following comment from my last compilation "... unless of course they stop their counterproductive obstruction and actually help Obama move his legislative agenda, like dealing with global warming and shifting the US government priorities away from war-making and empire-building/maintenance towards actually helping the US economy out of its doldrums ..."

"An essential aspect of any civilization's progress out of third density is experiencing duality; realizing that its divisiveness prevents living peacefully; and ultimately reconciling differences harmoniously within communities, countries and internationally. By so doing, the peoples advance in soul growth sufficiently to enter fourth density. The intensifying light has been bringing about this realization—conscious-raising and spiritual renewal—and it will continue to do so until the last vestiges of duality end in global reconciliation. (...) Another way to think of this repetitive process in soul evolution is karma, which often is misperceived. Karma is not a reward or a punishment, it is not something decided by a "divine judge" or your peers in a spirit world or any other external source. Nor is it either positive or negative; like energy, karma is neutral˜both get their direction from thoughts, feelings and actions, and those collectively determine subsequent experiences. What karma is then, is boundless opportunities to experience both sides of the coin, so to speak, and to strengthen areas that are weak in positive aspects regarding behavior choices. In all cases, the ultimate objective is to obtain the balanced experiencing that will complete all the learning offered in a third density world. (...) Most of Nirvana's typical residents are third density spiritually. After preparing to overcome self-acknowledged shortcomings in the past physical lifetime, they make soul contract selections to put their remedial learning into practice in another lifetime on Earth or a different third density world. The spiritually advanced either quickly move on to their next destination choice or they stay remarkably long to serve in the council or as master teachers or healers. Light permeates the higher layers of Nirvana, and because of their exceptional beauty and diversity, they are vacation spots for people from fourth and higher densities spiritually and in form. Those layers also serve as a refuge for people from distant civilizations who have had a series of very difficult experiences and know Nirvana's reputation for custom-healing of traumatized psyches."

"I got a lot of funny looks ten years ago when I started talking to people about Wikipedia. Let's just say some people were skeptical of the notion that volunteers from all across the world could come together to create a remarkable pool of human knowledge - all for the simple purpose of sharing. No ads. No agenda. No strings attached. A decade after its founding, nearly 400 million people use Wikipedia and its sister sites every month - almost a third of the Internet-connected world. It is the 5th most popular website in the world but Wikipedia isn't anything like a commercial website. It is a community creation, written by volunteers making one entry at a time. You are part of our community. (...) Wikipedia is about the power of people like us to do extraordinary things. People like us write Wikipedia, one word at a time. People like us fund it, one donation at a time. It's proof of our collective potential to change the world."

"You can call it God if you want, but you don't have to. Quantum consciousness will do. Nonlocality, tangled hierarchy, and discontinuity: these signatures of quantum consciousness have been independently verified by leading researchers worldwide. This experimental data and its conclusions inform us that it is the mistaken materialist view that is at the center of most of our worlds problems today. To address these problems, we now have a science of spirituality that is fully verifiable and objective. So let's walk our talk, and make brain circuits of positive emotions. We just do it. We practice. Let some of us be good, do good. Be with God some of the time, be in the ego some of the time, and let the dance generate creative acts of transformation. With this resolution, with this objective in mind, I invite you to become Quantum Activists."

"Humanity is at a dangerous crossroads. War preparations to attack Iran are in "an advanced state of readiness". Hi tech weapons systems including nuclear warheads are fully deployed. This military adventure has been on the Pentagon's drawing board since the mid-1990s. First Iraq, then Iran according to a declassified 1995 US Central Command document.Escalation is part of the military agenda. While Iran, is the next target together with Syria and Lebanon, this strategic military deployment also threatens North Korea, China and Russia. When a US sponsored nuclear war becomes an "instrument of peace", condoned and accepted by the World's institutions and the highest authority including the United Nations, there is no turning back: human society has indelibly been precipitated headlong onto the path of self-destruction. What are the countervailing forces which might prevent this war from occurring? There are numerous ongoing forces at work within the US State apparatus, the US Congress, the Pentagon and NATO. The main factor which could prevent this war from occurring comes from the base of society, requiring forceful antiwar action by hundreds of millions of people across the land, nationally and internationally. People must mobilize not only against this diabolical military agenda, the authority of the State and its officials must also be challenged. This war can be prevented if people forcefully confront their governments, pressure their elected representatives, organize at the local level in towns, villages and municipalities, spread the word, inform their fellow citizens regarding the implications of a nuclear war, initiate debate and discussion within the armed forces. The holding of mass demonstrations and antiwar protests is not enough. What is required is the development of a broad and well organized grassroots antiwar network which challenges the structures of power and authority."

- Michel Chossudovsky, Rembrance Day, November 11, 2010 -- Taken from Remembrance Day: Reversing the Tide of War. Say No to Nuclear War A MUST READ! Make sure also to read Mounting US war threats against Iran below... to verify the accuracy of this statement about the risks of an American/Israeli nuclear attack against Iran and check also the SPECIAL FOCUS ON THE AMAZING POPULAR UPRISING IN GERMANY AGAINST THEIR NUCLEAR INDUSTRY below for a stellar example of one of the many things that can be done to derail such a heinous, inhumane plan. The following outstanding documentary also offers another stellar example: PRAY THE DEVIL BACK TO HELL - trailer "The film is inspiring, uplifting and is a call to action for all of us" - Desmond Tutu, Winner 1984 Nobel Peace Prize. Pray the Devil Back to Hell is the extraordinary story of a small band of Liberian women who - armed only with white T-shirts and the courage of their convictions - came together in the midst of a bloody civil war, took on the warlords, and brought peace to their shattered country. Pray the Devil Back to Hell reconstructs the moment through interviews, archival footage and striking images of contemporary Liberia. It is compelling testimony to the potential of women worldwide to alter the history of nations. More on this at http://www.praythedevilbacktohell.com/

"Mack suggests that the alien abductors are here to show us that we've cut ourselves off from a universe that, as world religions have so long taught, contains intelligences beyond the material realm. Even those rationalists who could never accept such a formulation - religious or otherwise - should take notice of the message Mack discovers in abduction experiences: that it's our very worldview, the "Western, Newtonian/Cartesian, or materialist/dualist scientific paradigm" that underlies most of the practices threatening our future. Out of the messages his "abductees" bring to us from their adventures, Mack identifies four destructive patterns: corporate acquisitiveness, economic injustice, "ethnonational" violence, and above all, "ecological destruction on a scale that threatens the survival of the Earth's living systems."

"It is my opinion at this point that based on the Trajectory of the Missile and or Missiles, it was an intercept most likely by a Group in our Military not under the command of NORAD or the Pentagon who has override capability--It appears that it was a combined North Korean/Iran combined submarine launch attempt at an EMP Strike on West Coast--Obviously technology has been sold to Both Nations as an attempt to give them incapacitating short Range Cruise style missiles! What most people are failing to reference is that a similar unexplained missile launch seems to have taken place several days earlier from Luke AFB in Arizona same interesting contrail plume. Von Clausewitz in his Classic book "ON WAR" stated that when goods don't cross borders armies do! When International currencies fail, wars arise and Ladies and Gentleman--we are at the Breaking Point, Tipping point and very soon at the Point of no return! Our Planetary Plundering with Paper Dollars is about to bite us in the bottom like we have never experienced before and there will be nothing left to bend over and kiss goodbye!"

About the Global Oneness Project
The Global Oneness Project is exploring how the radically simple notion of interconnectedness can be lived in our increasingly complex world. Since 2006, we've been traveling the globe gathering stories from creative and courageous people who base their lives and work on the understanding that we bear great responsibility for each other and our shared world. Our living library of films is available for free from our website, through select broadcast outlets, and on DVD. Through events and educational materials we offer opportunities for people to deepen their experience with the different facets of oneness we are exploring. We hope that by showing the diverse ways oneness is expressed—in the fields of sustainability, conflict resolution, spirituality, art, economics, indigenous culture, and social justice—others will be inspired to create solutions to personal and community challenges from their own lived understanding of oneness.

What Would It Look Like?
What if the world embodied our highest potential? What would it look like? As the structures of modern society crumble, is it enough to respond with the same tired solutions? Or are we being called to question a set of unexamined assumptions that form the very basis of our civilization? This 25-minute retrospective asks us to reflect on the state of the world and ourselves, and to listen more closely to what is being asked of us at this time of unprecedented global transformation.

Even One Child Soldier is Too Many (November 1, 2010)
The good Senator, Roméo Dallaire, is in the red chair tonight, and I want to bring special attention to the group he's working with because they're doing something really great... Through Zero Force, Dallaire is uniting an army of people to fight against the use of child soldiers in war. If you weren't already aware of the horrors a child soldier is forced to endure, read this: At any given time there are a quarter of a million child soldiers globally experiencing a suffering that most of us cannot even imagine. These children are routinely abducted violently from their families at a tender age, and are subjected to forcible confinement, torture, threats, rape, brainwashing, slavery, starvation, intoxication through drugs and sleep deprivation. They are forced to carry heavy loads, including human bodies, not just weaponry. They are often paired up and killed if their partner escapes.

51 Ways to Spark a Commons Revolution
What you can do, alone and with others, to share life. (...) Money & the Economy 20. Buy from local, independent businesses when possible. (amiba.net, livingeconomies.org). 21. Before buying something online, see if you can find it or order it locally. That keeps some of your money in the community. 22. Investigate how many things you now pay for you could get in more cooperative ways—check out DVDs at the library, quit the health club and form a morning jogging club, etc. 23. Start a neighborhood exchange to share everything from lawn mowers to child care and home repairs to vehicles. 24. Barter. Trade your skill in baking pies with someone who will fix your computer. 25. Look into creating a Time Dollars system (timebanks.org) or locally-based currency. (smallisbeautiful.org). 26. Organize a common security club. You are not on your own when it comes to economic woes. (commonsecurityclub.org) 27. Watch where your money goes. How do the businesses you patronize harm or help the commons? 28. Purchase fair trade, organic, and locally made goods from small producers as much as you can. CLIP

Enerkem - This Quebec-based company produces second generation (non plant-based) ethanol from garbage
By converting garbage into fuel, Enerkem contributes to a better environment while providing the world with clean energy. LOCALLY. ANYWHERE. NOW. Enerkem's community-based biofuel plants - Enerkem takes your non-recyclable garbage to create clean community transportation fuels at its modular refineries. Your garbage is fuelling your car - thanks to Enerkem's efficient plants. Cette info est également disponible en français au http://www.enerkem.com - NOTE: Their latest plant based in Edmonton (Alberta) will begin operation in 2011 and will produce 36 million litres /10 million gallons per year of ethanol out of 100,000 dry tonnes of non-recyclable and non-compostable municipal solid waste. This is the world's first agreement between a large urban centre and a biofuel producer to turn municipal waste into ethanol. This facility, which is part of a comprehensive municipal waste-to-biofuels initiative (http://www.edmontonbiofuels.ca), in partnership with the City of Edmonton and Alberta Innovates, will enable the City of Edmonton to increase its residential waste diversion rate to 90 percent. (Which is a remarkable rate and possibly the best in the world! If every major city around the world had such a plant, the problem of municipal waste would be largely solved and municipal landfills would stop their untenable expansion.)

Navdanya is a network of seed keepers and organic producers spread across 16 states in India. Navdanya has helped set up 54 community seed banks across the country, trained over 500,000 farmers in seed sovereignty, food sovereignty and sustainable agriculture over the past two decades, and helped setup the largest direct marketing, fair trade organic network in the country. Navdanya has also set up a learning center, Bija Vidyapeeth (School of the Seed) on its biodiversity conservation and organic farm in Doon Valley, Uttranchal, north India. Navdanya is actively involved in the rejuvenation of indigenous knowledge and culture. It has created awareness on the hazards of genetic engineering, defended people's knowledge from biopiracy and food rights in the face of globalisation and climate change. Navdanya is a women centred movement for the protection of biological and cultural diversity.

Earth Democracy
We need a new paradigm to respond to the fragmentation caused by various forms of fundamentalism. We need a new movement, which allows us to move from the dominant and pervasive culture of violence, destruction and death to a culture of non-violence, creative peace and life. That is why in India, Navdanya started the Earth democracy movement, which provides an alternative worldview in which humans are embedded in the Earth Family, we are connected to each other through love, compassion, not hatred and violence and ecological responsibility and economic justice replaces greed, consumerism and competition as objectives of human life. CLIP - NOTE from Jean: Check also their 4 key concepts of Seed Sovereignty, Food Sovereignty, Water Sovereignty and Land Sovereignty which would be a good template for what could be adapted and implanted worldwide. I strongly believe in those 4 basic concepts as this is what I've been experiencing here, in our small-scall intentional community, for the past 30 years. "We need once more to feel at home on the earth and with each other." BTW as I just discovered in Water Sovereignty, did you know that, on average, a rural woman walks more than 14000 km a year just to fetch water?

Big Ideas: Little Packages
Can good design save the world? It just might, one novel idea at a time. Sparked by programs like the Entrepreneurial Design for Extreme Affordability course at Stanford University's Institute of Design, designers are creating products to meet the needs of communities in developing countries. It turns out that even the most pressing problems, from health care to potable water, can have affordable-and beautifully designed-solutions.

The Skoll World Forum: Uncommon Heroes - Wonderful video!
The Skoll Foundation drives large-scale change by connecting, and celebrating and investing in social entrepreneurs and other innovators who are dedicated to solving the world's most pressing problems. One major catalyst for this idea exchange and networking is the Skoll World Forum, held annually at the Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford. This April, a short film in the Forum's "Uncommon Heroes" series premiered in the historic Sheldonian Theatre, highlighting the work of Fair Trade, TransFair USA and Skoll winner Paul Rice. NOTE from Jean: I found this through the URL on the tiny label on my organic, fair trade bananas - bought at the local regular grocery store here in the remote village where I live! A wonderful initiative for greater social equity, economic justice and environmental sustainability on Earth. An excellent introductory video on the origin, phenomenal growth and life-saving success of the global fair trade movement.

The Red Pill
The Red Pill is a project to catalogue all of those things on the stranger side of reality, from new paradigm science to alternative history and the mysteries of consciousness. This grew out of Wikipedia's tendency to avoid 'fringe' issues. Additionally, this gives community members a place to browse through the collective thoughts and interests of those who like the taste of the proverbial 'red pill'. So far we have 145 articles written and edited by the community.

Mettez votre blé à la banque
Navdanya est une ONG indienne, née de la dynamique Dr Vandana Shiva, s'est donné pour mission d'offrir aux paysans indiens une alternative aux semences « modernes » et aux OGM. Pour supprimer la dépendance des fermiers à l'égard des grands semenciers, Navdanya est devenue une banque de semences traditionnelles. Des variétés oubliées, depuis plus d'un demi siècle parfois, qui sont soigneusement conservées, replantées chaque année (dans la ferme de l'association) pour leur garder leur pouvoir germinatif. Des semences qui sont offertes aux paysans qui veulent revenir à une agriculture traditionnelle - on dit biologique de nos jours - mais avec des techniques modernes (plantation alternée, plante chasse-nuisible, pesticides et engrais naturels, etc.).Navdanya fournit les graines et le conseil, pour que les candidats au bio se lancent. (...) En France, ces graines peuvent se trouver, par exemple chez Kokopélli, au Québec on peut citer la Société des plantes ou l'Écoumène, par exemple… - De nombreuses autres découvertes géniales à découvrir via http://causeaeffets.com/

Faux départ - Bande annonce d'un documentaire français sur les expériences de mort imminente
Ils sont des millions à travers le monde à nous raconter la même histoire troublante, comme la sensation de se détacher de son corps, d'assister à sa propre réanimation, d'entendre les chirurgiens parler entre eux, et voir un tunnel avec au bout une lumière. Cette expérience a bouleversé leur ...vie, au point qu'ils ne craignent plus la mort. Longtemps considéré comme obscur et assujetti aux railleries, le phénomène intéresse aujourd'hui de nombreux scientifiques, qui s'interrogent : Comment ces personnes ont-elles pu percevoir et mémoriser des scènes de leur réanimation alors qu'elles étaient inconscientes, dans le coma et parfois déclarées morte cliniquement ? Ils sont Cardiologues, Neurologues, Anesthésistes-Réanimateurs, Médecins, Psychologues. Certains conduisent une étude, d'autres ont vécu eux-mêmes une expérience de mort imminente. Ils témoignent sans complexe pour lever un tabou qui se révèle être une mine d'or de connaissance pour la science et pour l'Homme. - Davantage d'information via le http://www.s17production.com/fr/index.asp
