    Hi:

    Right after making that post on Ed, I discovered that Lydia Sargent died last month. She co-founded South End Press and Z Magazine, which were Ed’s and Noam’s primary publishing conduits for many years, ever since their first joint effort was spectacularly censored. Here is the eulogy from Michael Albert, her business partner for a half-century. Michael, like so many on the Left, is a materialist, which comes through loud and clear in his eulogy. He will be pleasantly surprised one day.

    Awe-inspiring work, Lydia, and you are definitely missed.

    See you soon,

    Wade

    Hi:

    I can’t speak for others with eidetic memories, but I have always hated rote memorization, and refused to do it. The only exception I can think of was memorizing my lines for acting.

    During my first year at Cal Poly, that only class that I got a B in was probably the most worthless class that I ever took. Management classes in general were worthless, but that class was some kind of survey class, and the textbook was filled with gossip and trivia. Test questions were literally like, “On what page was Lee Iacocca quoted on his opinion of Chrysler?” The only way to get an A was to literally memorize the entire chapter, including the page numbers, and I refused to play along. It was like filling my mind with garbage.

    My intermediate accounting classes that year were the “weed out classes” in the accounting curriculum, and are the hardest classes in any accounting program. The accounting theory portion of the CPA exam nearly all came from intermediate accounting classes. For me, those classes were harder than the calculus classes for scientists that I took. The most conceptually challenging classes were my favorites, but even in my second semester of calculus, the teacher made us memorize calculus trigonometry functions, that was about when I dropped out of my math-science studies, and when that voice would soon talk to me.

    I recall that when I was six, I made a commitment to never forget those memories from when I was two, and I recall revisiting those memories over the years as I grew up, and how purposefully remembering them seemed to keep them fresh. But, that was the only time that I did something like that. For the rest of my memories, they are just there. Sometimes, I’ll “play” memories about events, when I am looking for something specific, to see if it comes up, and sometimes it will. I can’t do it like I used to, as I become an old man. But having an eidetic memory is pretty involuntary. Also, I burned out on “brain teasers” at about age 10, and have refused to do them ever since. I suppose that some good can come out of that, but I always wanted to use my mind on a meaningful goal, not just to do something that might be exercising some mental muscles.

    It was only years later that I came to realize that all of that accounting knowledge that I gained was in the service of a worthless profession. I keep score for the capitalists today, and likely will for the rest of my career. That voice has plenty of explaining to do.

    I remember how I thought with each of these birthdays: 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60. Each one was a kind of time-marking exercise for me, as I thought about what was behind me and what might lie ahead. I turned 10 a few months after winning the Serra Elementary spelling bee, and my parents seemed to realize that they had a prodigy on their hands when I was a toddler, but it was not until winning that spelling bee that I began to realize that I was rather talented. But I was still a Boy Scout, and there was really no ego in it for me back then. I was expected to do great things, and I felt a responsibility to live up to it. I overheard my father telling some relatives about my high IQ, around the time that I was placed in my first gifted programs. I think that it put pressure on me to hear that.

    My bookworm status never really changed, and I read everything that I could get my hands on, including the tabloids that my mother brought home from the grocery store, which I gave up at age 13, when a childhood friend’s nuclear physicist father had his son take me to task for reading junk like that. I gave up TV at age 18, which was my mother’s other bad habit that she gave me. The incongruity of my father’s IQ being about twice my mother’s did not strike me while growing up. But after I left home, I increasingly did not have much in common with my mother, and we grew apart.

    What is coming on this thread are key memories of my lifetime, and how they impacted me. Some impacts were obvious while they happened, while other impacts did not become evident until years later.

    Best,

    Wade

    Hi:

    When I went through my memory box recently, I unsuccessfully looked for a comment that an early-grade teacher made, and maybe in summer school, about my fascination with nature. I’ll probably never know just what all was stolen.

    That teacher’s comment might be the earliest hint at where I was heading. In third grade, my parents sent my brother and me to a Saturday morning science class at a museum. During that year in Texas, we visited relatives and two my grandfather’s pals from his World War II days. One relative, my paternal grandmother’s half-sister, had a home on the shores of a lake near Brownsville, Texas. As I recall, that great aunt shot at an animal while we were there, which is typical rural Texan behavior. As we drove the backroads when visiting them, some roads were literally lined with mounds of fossils. I believe that they were Permian fossils, mostly reef remnants, perhaps. How do you keep young boys from that? We eagerly played in fossil mounds, and I found one particularly interesting rock, which seemed to have skin on it. It took it to my Saturday science teacher, and he tentatively identified it. It became a prized possession, and when we moved back to California a few months later, I brought it with me. Not long after we moved to Ventura, my prized fossil rock went missing, and I don’t know if it just got tossed into the garden as worthless, or it was a conscious theft.

    I vividly remember the look that my father gave me when I was in third grade, after an hour-long checkers game with him, when he said that he had a new game to teach me. By the fifth grade, I had read all of the paleontology books at Serra School’s library, and read the World Book Encyclopedia each night in bed, as the family library was in my room. By age 12 or so, I could probably recite most of the records in the Guinness Book of World Records. I was an information and learning junkie. By about age nine, I read the newspaper daily, which lasted into my early 30s. I stopped reading newspapers altogether by the late 1990s, partly because of the rise of the Internet, and partly because of what I discovered about the “news.” Trying to parse the truth from the lies can be a dismaying and wearying task, and I eventually decided that newspapers just were not worth the time and effort any longer. I understand why Ed and Noam kept analyzing the media, and getting Ed’s monthly articles in Z Magazine was infinitely more edifying than reading the paper.

    I clearly recall my fascination while reading about my beloved trilobites, Cambrian seas, and the like. I had toy dinosaurs, mammoths, pterodactyls, and the like, which were not unusual child possessions in those days. I was precocious, but I really did not see myself as any different from my friends and neighbors, in a middle class boomer neighborhood. But that all began to change one June morning, soon after I turned 12, when my mother walked into the kitchen and announced that the corn flakes I was eating were bad for my health. That was my first introduction to alternatives. As I think back to that morning, just how I was different may have been in evidence, as I soon discovered. I did not receive my mother’s comment with indignation, as I literally had my spoon in my mouth, but wanted to know more. I think that I read Stale Food Versus Fresh Food that morning.

    At age 12, I was not exactly a candidate for a heart attack, but my father was, and I had no resistance at all to that new diet, and I rarely “cheated.” But, when I began telling friends about our dietary change, I was shocked by the indignant reactions. They called it crazy, and the like, and they really did not want to know more. That was in Southern California, where all fads started, and healthy diets became a fad. In 1976, a song about a secret junk food junkie became a hit, and I was teased about my diet into my 30s, and in Ohio, as a vegetarian, I was treated like a celebrity of sorts. Nobody in Ohio was threatened by my habits. It was more like I was a mythical creature that people had heard of in legend, and they finally got to see one. It was gently amusing by that time. More than 40 years after reading Stale Food Versus Fresh Food, and a generation after it was banned in the USA, I discovered that mainstream medicine adopted the advice in that banned book. Seeing that arc, as well as with my fasting practices, as they are now in vogue, and vegetarian foods are the hot new capitalist play, are some of the more amazing experiences of my lifetime, as I watched marginalized, ridiculed, and banned practices go mainstream.

    Hi:

    I stopped trying to interest anybody in my life in alternative medical treatments many years ago. Those experiences with alternative diets, when I was 12, began to prepare me for how people react to anything out of the mainstream, and I never was successful with getting anybody with degenerative diseases to try an alternative, even those who had been given death sentences by orthodox medicine. I watched them embrace certain death over even questioning their indoctrination, which I soon came to realize was normal. When my former assistant asked me what I would have done, with her diagnosis, I was surprised that she would even ask. I threw her some names, but really didn’t expect her to do anything with them. She didn’t, and was dead six months later.

    A longtime pal, who arranged my first visit to Gilliland’s ranch, has a wife who was diagnosed with breast cancer six months ago. He asked me back then what alternatives were available, although he did not expect his wife, a nurse, to try any of them. I gave him my usual suggestions of Gaston Naessens, Ralph Moss’s investigations, etc.

    Now, six months later, after the usual brutal methods of orthodox therapy and no improvement, of course, his wife is now willing to maybe add some alternatives on top of the orthodox treatments. He asked me yesterday what I could recommend, I found myself surfing a little, and discovered that Gaston passed on in 2018, at the ripe age of 94. I spoke with his wife for an hour back in 1997, as Gaston never spoke good English. Ralph investigated Gaston a generation ago, and was impressed, and there is plenty out there on Gaston’s discoveries and treatment.

    Fare you well, Gaston,

    Hi:

    Every few months, I pop into the exceptional NDE stash that is continually updated. While this one was good, this one was truly exceptional, not only for the multiple NDEs, but the “galactic tour” last account on that page. The “God’s gratitude that we came here to be physical” theme is not too unusual (Brinkley had a similar message, for instance).

    I wrote a little on the evolution camps recently, and while I know that materialism is a false faith, I also don’t buy a lot of the intelligent design stuff that I see. Both camps often suffer from the limitations of their faiths. I doubt that evolutionary theory in the Fifth Epoch will have much resemblance to what we see today. If some of our nearby galactic neighbors are humanoid, it brings up profound questions. I think the first would be if we are related, in that they helped seed humanity on Earth or intervened in our evolutionary journey. If so, that is going to have major impacts on evolutionary theory, and it is mindboggling to consider. If there is some kind of preferred form for biological life to take, guided by higher planes of existence, that will be equally mindboggling. How much of the universe’s life has something like DNA in it? The people in that heavenly Roads world knew many of those answers.

    Until we can actually study such life, it is all a bunch of speculation. I hear plenty of stories, but they are just stories, until the evidence can be examined, if it can be examined. I think that it is indisputable that evolution happens on Earth, and that Darwin got a lot right, more than he could have imagined, while he also got plenty wrong, such as denying that mass extinctions happened. But that does not mean that materialism is valid, or that Bible-banging “science” is valid.

    I don’t know how many of my questions on these subjects will be answered in my lifetime, or if I am even brought in on the joke on the other side, but they are subjects that people can chew on for the rest of their lives, and profitably. It is the process that is important, IMO, not the current state of the science.

    Best,

    Wade, what are your thoughts on Lamarckism? (The inheritance of acquired or learned characteristics?)

    Hi Bill:

    That is a huge subject. Peter Ward recently wrote a book titled Lamarck’s Revenge, as epigenetics makes its rise. I sure don’t know what the answer is, but I suspect it is something along these lines…

    Evolution is real, and there is a real physical basis to it, but DNA mutations are only part of the story. As far as embryo development goes, today’s science knows hardly anything at all. They found part of the blueprint with DNA, but that says nothing about any architect (materialists believe that there is not one) or how the workers go about pounding those nails. DNA’s primary purpose is being a blueprint for making proteins. Cranking out proteins says very little about how cells and organisms are constructed.

    Epigenetics is a new area of evolutionary controversy, and we’ll see how much Lamarck might be vindicated. For the record, Lamarck is one a long line of scientists who were viciously attacked by their peers, and he died a ruined man, which is the reason for the title of Ward’s book. The giraffe example is a Lamarckian classic, and my guess is that it is not just all chance mutation and selective pressure, which is the orthodox position today. Darwinian theory is probably quite valid on the survival of the fittest, but the issue of the arrival of the fittest is the key area of contention these days, and Lamarckian theory is part of that milieu. Again, this is all fascinating, and I doubt that those controversies will be resolved in my lifetime, unless, of course, the ETs land on the White House lawn.

    Best,

    Wade

    Hi:

    On that “ETs on the White House lawn” scenario

    If that day happens, evolutionary theory will certainly be up for reappraisal, and we’ll see how much of today’s body of theory survives, but all of that pales to insignificance compared to the technologies that the ETs used to get here. That is going to be the primary transformative aspect of that scenario; the rest only changes our story, not the way we live.

    That is why I try to not pay too much attention to the ET circus. A great deal of it is disinformation, paranoia, denial, and the rest, and largely a distraction.

    I am not that interested in how our story will change, and am not that interested in whether captured ET technology was behind my friend’s show. What matters to me is that those technologies exist, and what their transformative potential is. The rest is noise. That is where a comprehensive perspective can help understand what the Fifth Epoch means, as well as rank issues in their importance. Next to free energy and the attendant technologies, everything else in human affairs pales to insignificance. The GCs understand this well, which is why they have the lid so tightly on this stuff. The ET issue is primarily kept under wraps as a way to keep those technologies under wraps. If one comes out, the other will closely follow, which is why they are joined at the hip.

    We are seeing what looks like limited hangout behavior on the ET issue lately, and we’ll see what comes of it. I pay some attention to it, but not all that much, and today’s electoral circus has simply nothing to do with it, as any sitting president is a puppet. Trump is not the white knight on a steed that will save the day, and I don’t even want to talk about Biden.

    Best,

    Hi:

    Back to my memories. I am a boomer, and a member of history’s most privileged demographic group – white educated American men – and raised in an idyllic California beach town, so life must have been good, right? In many ways, it was. But in others, not so much. When I look back at the racist and bigoted environment that I was raised in, I have to shake my head. My memories of JFK’s and RFK’s assassinations were stark ones, as were the deaths of the Apollo 1 astronauts. I have to admit that MLK’s assassination was not as big a deal in my life or of those around me. I am sure that racism had something to do with that. That my great nation was engaging in genocide on peasant societies was lost on me when I was 10. At 10, for some reason, my mother took me to Berkeley’s campus on the way to Washington, for our usual summer trip, and I remember watching cops dragging a woman through the main square (a clock tower was nearby), but I did not understand what I was seeing.

    I did not learn that Saint Serra was California’s equivalent of Hitler until I was in my 30s, nor did I have any understanding of the bloody “settling” of my great nation until my 30s, after I had been awakened and began hitting the books.

    My father was unhappy working for the Navy, my brother a year younger than me was smarter than me, but with a criminal mind, and in a few years, when my youngest brother began kindergarten, it became obvious that he was a special needs child. His IQ is somewhere around 80, if I had to guess, and maybe a little lower. The genetic roulette that my parents played had some bad outcomes. My special needs brother has had a lifetime of misery, and my criminal brother became a fringe-dweller. I was the Boy Scout and family hero, but my memories of life before high school are not really all that happy, and I am sure that that all contributed. As I reached high school, it really was the beginning of leaving home, and my life became a lot happier.

    It was during my first year in high school that I got my energy dreams, followed by my eye-opening trip to Europe, and then my mystical awakening a few months later. 1974 was a pivotal year in my life, and “coincidentally” when humanity’s greatest period of prosperity ended. I used to be able to do it, and I have not tried to for many years and doubt that I can any longer, but I used to be able to remember every day of that European tour, in some detail. One memory that stands out is when I was sitting in the lobby of our hotel in Paris, after a week in Europe, and it felt like I had been there a year, as I was processing so much. The next summer, my first day at Boys State felt like a week.

    But, probably the most spectacular memory of those days was when I watched that woman raise her hand and say that Isaac Brown was missing the end of the index finger that she raised. I can still see her doing that, and I remember my awestruck surprise upon seeing it. I was on my way to becoming a scientist/materialist only a week earlier.

    My worldview irreversibly changed in that moment, and I did not know it yet, but I was ruined as a mainstream scientist from that moment forward. When it was my turn, and I diagnosed my case’s medical condition as a stroke that paralyzed her right side, when all I had to go on was her name, age, sex, and city of residence, it seemed kind of normal to be able to do that.

    I can’t overemphasize what a divide that moment was. I have only had a few others in my life, which are coming before this thread is finished, and some are even more spectacular, such as the times that that voice spoke to me, and my day on the witness stand. All of those happened by age 30, and everything since then has been the small stuff, except probably for meeting Brian and being introduced to Ed’s work, but I was 32 when I began reading Ed’s work, and I met Brian the next year. So, the past 30 years have been fairly uneventful in my life, and I suppose it has been compensation of a sort, but not without its challenges.

    Hi:

    When that voice first spoke to me, there was a pattern to its arrival that I recognized the second time it spoke to me. In both instances, I felt backed into a corner by events, and only prayed for the voice in desperation. The first time, I had no idea what would happen, or if anything would happen.

    On one hand, it felt like I was being manipulated into those dark corners, and I was always a little resentful of that, but it brought me to that place of being all out of inspiration, after trying everything, and praying for help. I’ll never forget the first time I heard that voice, with my first waking thought, when I was 19. “Have you ever thought of studying business?” was a completely alien thought in my head. Some people actually hear a voice (1, 2). For me, it was just alien thoughts in my head, and Dennis likely had a similar experience. In none of those events was it heard in some kind of exalted state, but in normal waking awareness, although under extreme circumstances each time, although mine was nowhere as extreme as those others I just linked to.

    I guess that when I heard it the third and last time, I was kind of in an exalted state, as I had just prayed with all my might for Mr. Professor’s soul, saw him in his heaven (and he sent me an undeniable message from there), and I saw him, accompanied by his mother and two angels (they were columns of light, with the angels about twice as tall as Mr. Professor and his mother), as his widow said goodbye to his body. When that voice took “credit” for leading me to Mr. Professor, as I stood next to his dead body, that was some tough medicine! Mr. Professor came through at his grave 11 years later, in what I quickly understood was his way of trying to assuage my pain. I still don’t want to hear from that voice again. No more suicide missions, thank you. And with eidetic memory, I get to see it all, whether I want to or not, in technicolor. In a way, it has been a form of torture.

    Over the years, people have stated how blessed I was to be guided like that. Well, if I was, then that voice sure demanded a lot, as my life was soon ruined, along with the lives of many others. I saw many wrecked and shortened lives, and I had to wonder what it all was for. To a significant degree, my efforts are carrying on for Mr. Professor, Brian, and Dennis. But, I am also chasing the biggest event in the human journey. Sometimes I step back and take that in, and realize that the voice was all about leading me there, and wrecked and shortened lives seem to come with the territory. God and I are going to have a little chat about that after I pass over. Does it really need to be this way? A few heroes sacrifice their lives for a humanity that is unaware and simply does not care about anything other than their immediate self-interest?

    Actually, I don’t think that it has to be that way, which is where my choir idea came from. If relatively few people can reach productive awareness on this issue and sing in chorus, the Fifth Epoch is not far away. But can they get there without going through the free energy meat grinder? That is still what I am trying to find out. I think that with people with the right stuff, who were not wrecked by their journeys and can do the work, it is possible. I do not seek more candidates for my personal pantheon. There are not enough of them on Earth for the hero’s approach to work, and that has its own downsides. I am trying to form something far more modest, which can only help, should not hurt anybody, if the gung-ho newbies can heed my advice and stay out of trouble, and it might be the critical missing piece.

    When that voice speaks to you, you never forget it. It stays high in your memory, as an extraordinary moment. For me, what that voice led me to was kind of hard to believe, as I got to chase my teenage dream. I can’t regret any of it, but I only had one life to wreck on a journey like this, and I continually pick up the pieces of my shattered life. One day, I may be able to tell it all publicly, but a few more people have to die before I can. Oh, the memories!

    Next up will be memories after college graduation, on the way to being led to Dennis.

    Best,

    Wade

    Hi:

    As an addendum to my previous post, when I write of my personal pantheon and those who laid their lives on the line, there are really not many of those. Dennis towers above the rest, as the Indiana Jones of free energy, who should be dead dozens of times over. Mr. Professor comes in next, as he truly sacrificed his life. Alison is up there, and Dennis’s assistant who replaced me is nearly at that level.

    Brian, Ralph, Gary, and Rodney Stich all sacrificed their lives, although, like the rest of us, they really did not know what they were getting into. Late in his life, Brian said that if he had any idea of what he was getting into, he would have kept sipping his Ivy League sherry instead. Those crucified doctors and scientists also rank up there, and they also did not realize what they were getting into. None of us really did.

    For all of their greatness of spirit, Ed, Noam, and Howard really did not play at those levels. They are still in my pantheon, however. The rest of them that I listed in that post are not really at the pantheon level, but still acquitted themselves relatively honorably.

    My point is that there are just not enough people on Earth for the heroic approach to have a prayer of success.

    Best,

    Wade
