Kanata UFO (Venus)

Filmed this morning (Sept 29, 2012) in front of my house at 6:15am. It was gone by 7:00am and we first noticed it at 4:30am.

We've seen it a few times over the past couple of weeks and always during the 4am to 6am time frame. If you live in south Kanata (Bridlewood or Emerald Meadows), Ontario, Canada, then you can look for it in the sky during that time.

Update: October 17, 2012. After doing more research it seems that this object was likely the planet Venus. I did not know that Venus could appear as such a large bright ball of light in the eastern morning sky until I saw some pictures at I've included them below for comparison purposes.

In the upper right of the first photo below, you’ll see the planet Venus with the fainter star Regulus next to it. Migizi Gichigumi took this photo on the morning of October 1, 2012, on the shores of Lake Superior in northern Wisconsin.

Here in the second photo (below) is Venus (upper right) and the very old moon on the morning of September 14, 2012, as seen by VegaStar Carpentier in Paris.

While Venus is certainly very beautiful to look at, I would've preferred to have actually seen a UFO. With that in mind I'm including below one of my favourite UFO videos from about 2 years ago when some were seen over Manhattan.

The Precessional Alignment (part 1)

This is the first in a series of posts that will discuss the precessional alignment of December 21, 2012 in detail. The Founders cover this topic in chapter 7 of the book "Earth Changes and 2012: Messages From the Founders". The chapter starts as follows.

We are going to talk about what is called a Precessional Cycle. It is a cycle of the precession of your axis. It is a point in time, Earthly linear time, where the poles of your planet are aligned to a specific frequency generated from what you call quasars, which are large stellar bodies. Approximately every 26,000 years, your Earth tilts at exactly the right angle to align with these stellar bodies, which emit what are called "scalar electromagnetic impulses".

At that particular point in your Earth's evolutionary cycle, the electromagnetic field fluctuates and changes in such a way that it creates a great deal of change on Earth. Your Mayan civilization has recorded this event in their calendars and your prophets and psychics have foreseen this time of great change.

It is a wonderful opportunity for you, as evolving souls, to experience this transformation and grow from it, if you are willing to accept and embrace the opportunity.

In the outer realms of Creation, everything happens in cycles. You have the cycle of your Earth revolving around the sun, which you call a year. You base your Julian calendar on that cycle. You divide your year into various units of measure.

You are now becoming aware of the larger cycles, the Precessional Cycle of approximately 25,920 years and the Galactic Shift of approximately 108 million years. The Galactic Shift is roughly one half of a Galactic Cycle. A Galactic Cycle represents one revolution of your solar system around the Great Central Sun of your galaxy, which your scientists have calculated to be about 227 million years. Due to changes in the spinning of the galaxy, and time and space distortions caused by dark energy and dark matter, the actual number of Earth years in a Galactic Cycle is closer to 216 million.

There are even larger cycles within the universe as a whole. There is the time it takes your galaxy to revolve around the great central sun of the universe, which is a period of about 10.8 billion years. We will call that a Universal Cycle. At the same time, you know that your universe is continually expanding. God is continually expanding. A Universal Cycle is an outward unfolding spiral, rather than a simple revolution of galaxies around the Great Central Sun. So there are many cycles and there are many levels and dimensions to your universe.

Top 100: Clumping Herbs (Skirret)

This is the sixth of a series of posts that will cover the "Top 100" forest garden plants taken from volume 1 of the Edible Forest Gardens books. In this post we begin our list of clumping herbs.

SkirretSium sisarum
Hardiness zone 5-9, full sun to part shade, clumping, 3 ft. x 1-2 ft., edible roots, specialist nectary (image above)

Skirret is a productive root crop and specialist nec­tary plant for the sunnier parts of the forest garden. Its roots have long been cultivated in Eurasia but fell out of favour in the twentieth century. This is probably because the pencil- to finger-thick tap­roots, which grow as a dense cluster, often have a fibrous or woody core, at least in unnamed varieties. Fortunately, improved varieties that entirely lack this trait are now available and can be vegetatively propagated. The cooked roots are sweet and filling, like a blend of parsnip and potato. This productive and low-maintenance vegetable may enjoy a renais­sance as we come to appreciate the role of multi­purpose perennials in forest gardens and other edible landscaping systems.

Sweet Goldenrod - Solidago odora
Hardiness zone 3, full sun to part shade, clumping, 2-4 ft. x 2-4 ft., edible tea, specialist nectary

Goldenrods are ubiquitous species in the oldfield stage of succession throughout the eastern forest region. As a group, goldenrods are important for beneficial insects as a fall nectar source and a place to aggregate and then spread into the garden. Sweet goldenrod has the added benefit of being one of our finest native tea plants. Blue mountain tea, a beverage made from the leaves and flowers, has a licorice-like flavor. The leaves also make a nice nibble. As goldenrods go, this species is not very aggressive, mostly staying in place as a clump. A few sweet goldenrods in the sunnier phases or areas of your garden will provide many benefits with little care.

Comfreys (Symphytum spp.)

Large-flowered Comfrey - Symphytum grandiflorum
Hardiness zone 4, full sun to part shade, clumping, 8-12 in. x 18 in., dynamic accumulator, ground cover, beneficial habitat

Russian Comfrey - Symphytum x uplandicum
Hardiness zone 6, full sun to part shade, clumping, 1-4 ft. x 3 ft., dynamic accumulator, beneficial habitat (image below)

Comfreys are fantastic functional plants for the forest garden. They are perhaps the best of all the dynamic accumulators. They grow extremely well in most conditions, and you can cut them for nutrient-rich mulch several times each season. They also excel at attracting beneficial insects, pro­viding a preferred egg-laying and overwintering site for many species. Comfreys are also beloved by spiders, hosting as many as 240 per square meter in the soil below them during winter, according to one study. The challenge is that comfreys are incredibly persistent—once planted, they are virtually impos­sible to eliminate. A tiny root piece left in the ground will start a new plant. In addition, the species most commonly grown spreads by seed. Comfrey has taken over many gardens—don't let it happen to you!

One way to avoid this is to plant Russian com­frey, a sterile hybrid of two species, meaning it cannot make viable seed and, thus, cannot be weedy by seed. It is just as persistent as the common species, however. Large-flowered comfrey is a ground-covering species that forms a low mound. It will spread vegetatively and to a certain degree by seed. Large-flowered comfrey is a fantastic soil-building ground cover for partial shade.

The Mahabharata (book 1.C part 2)

Over the next four years Devavrata demonstrated to the ministers and nobility that he was not only a powerful and brave warrior, but also an intelligent statesman and above all a kind and generous leader. Everyone in Hastinapura loved him and knew he would be a great king one day. Santanu couldn't have been more proud.

One day Devavrata noticed his father looking rather melancholy. He had seen his father like this before and knew it was because he was missing his wife Ganga (Devavrata's mother). Devavrata thought about suggesting to his father that he should remarry, but also knew that other women could not compare to Ganga in beauty and thus his father had no interest in them.

Usually his father would recover in a day or two, but this time an entire week went by with no improvement and Devavrata began to worry. Santanu hardly left his bed chamber so Devavrata went to see him there. "Father, for more than a week now you have not been attending to your kingly duties, and you have not even partaken in your favourite activity of horseback riding. Please tell me what is the matter so that I may try to find a cure?"

Santanu betrayed a guilty expression before regaining his composure and replying. "I've only been thinking about you my son, and am worried about your well-being. You practice the art of war with such dangerous weapons that I fear for your life. What am I to do if you are accidentally killed? What is the kingdom to do?"

Devavrata was shocked to hear this from his father, for previously his father had expressed nothing but pride for his prowess in battle. However, he did not question his father and instead simply answered, "I understand father," and took his leave.

Devavrata then immediately went to see the chief minister for information regarding his father's grief. The minister received him warmly, and upon Devavrata's query responded, "I too am worried about your father's depression, and I probably shouldn’t tell you this, but when your father and I were returning from Chedi we encountered a beautiful maiden that your father immediately proposed to..."

"And?" asked Devavrata eagerly.

"I don't know. They both seemed happy and joyous as if all of their dreams were about to come true. Santanu informed me that they were going to see her father for his blessings, and then after some time Santanu returned alone looking dejected and refused to speak a word about what transpired."

"Take me to them!"

After a couple hours of travel they arrived at the fisherman’s hut. They were warmly greeted by the fisherman and welcomed inside. Devavrata's attention was quickly drawn to Satyavati due to her scent and beautiful appearance, but there was something strangely familiar about her that he couldn't quite put his finger on.

Once seated, the fisherman then asked, "To what do I owe the honour of this visit?"

Devavrata replied, "I've become aware that my father, King Santanu, has asked for your daughter's hand in marriage. Is this correct?"

"Yes, that is correct", replied the fisherman carefully.

"Then why has she not returned with him to Hastinapura to be married?"

"When your father, King Santanu, came to me with the proposal, I noticed at the same time a change in my daughter and immediately knew she would receive many offers from many kings. So to be a good father, I needed to ensure that only the best offer was accepted."

"Ours is the wealthiest kingdom in the land. What is it that my father was unable to offer you?"

"I desire that my daughter's first born son be made heir to the throne."

Devavrata now knew the cause of his father's grief. He glanced at Satyavati again, and then it hit him She's half apsara just like me! For unbeknownst to Satyavati her mother was the apsara Adrika, who returned to heaven shortly after giving birth.

Devavrata now clearly recognized her unique apsara beauty that his mother also possessed, and when combined with the incredible allure of her scent, it was equally clear why his father was obsessed with her.

The fisherman would no doubt have his choice of kings to choose from. It would be virtually impossible to find someone comparable to Satyavati for his father. There was only one thing he could do.

"I, Devavrata, hereby renounce my position as crown prince and vow that the son born of this maiden," he indicated Satyavati, "shall be made king of Hastinapura."

The fisherman was pleased but was still not completely satisfied, for he had thought of another way by which his grandson may not acquire the throne, "I have no doubt you are a man of your word, but there is still the possibility your children might vie for the throne. How can you ensure that doesn’t happen?"

"I have already relinquished my right to the throne, and I shall now settle the matter of my children. O fisherman, with God as my witness, I hereby vow to remain celibate for my entire life!"

There was an ominous flash of lightning and thunder clap as Devavrata completed his vow. The fisherman was filled with delight and declared, "I hereby bestow my daughter to King Santanu of Hastinapura!"

Devavrata then turned to Satyavati and offered his hand saying, "Mother, please come with me to your new home."

Satyavati was in shock at the events of the evening, and the sacrifice Devavrata had made. Her initial happiness at the thought of marrying Santanu had now turned somewhat sour.

When they returned to the palace, Santanu was outside waiting for them. As Devavrata and the chief minister dismounted from the chariot, Santanu saw Satyavati was with them. He turned to Devavrata and asked, "Did you have to renounce your right to the throne?"

"Yes, father," replied Devavrata solemnly.

Santanu began to feel guilty for he knew he was responsible for his son making this sacrifice, but was ultimately happy that his wish to marry Satyavati had come true. He smiled at her and offered his hand for her to descend from the chariot, and upon feeling her soft hand, his desire began to build within.

Seeing that Devavrata had not given all of the details of his sacrifice, Satyavati then spoke with deep sadness. "Devavrata did not only renounce his right to the throne. My father also made him take a vow of celibacy to ensure that even his children could not vie for the throne."

"What!", shouted Santanu. "Is this true?!?" he asked Devavrata.

Devavrata kept his eyes on the ground and nodded. Santanu suddenly found himself overwhelmed with guilt and all of the lust he had, left him in that instant. "Why would you do such a thing?" pleaded Santanu.

"Because I love you father."

Tears poured from Santanu's eyes as he pulled his son into a tight hug and spoke, "Death shall never come to you for as long as you desire to live. Truly, death shall only approach one as pure as you after first obtaining your command."

Santanu then released his hug and continued while holding Devavrata's shoulders, "And for this terrible vow you have taken, you are no longer Devavrata. You are now Bhishma instead."

The next day, Santanu and Satyavati were married at the palace without any celebration at all.

The Founders on Zero-Point Energy

The image above is of the Lutec Electricity Amplifier. Sal and the Founders mention it as one example of a zero point energy device. The following excerpt is from chapter 10 Technological Advances, in the book "Earth Awakens: Prophecy 2012 - 2030".

Most zero-point devices make use of circular or toroidal iron-core magnets carefully placed around coils and a DC motor. The object of the machine is to generate areas of non-polarized EM energy, often called scalar EM fields, by passing a current through the coil while the magnet is rotating. The initial rotation would be achieved by "kick-starting" the device with a simple 12V battery (or something similar). As the magnet turns around the coil, the EM field generated along the coil interacts with and feeds back into the loop with the magnetic field of the magnet. Because electric and magnetic poles within an EM system are 90 degrees out of phase, the velocity (angular momentum) of the system will cause fluctuations within the two fields. Sometimes they will cancel each other out, and at other times the fields will combine their energy.

As the magnet rotates, you will have 0-90-180-90-0-90-180-90 etc., as your angles of incidence. As the DC current moves along the coil, the system creates a polarized field which interacts with the rotating magnet. Essentially, you will have periodic interactions of plus-plus, plus-minus, minus-minus, minus-plus, plus-plus, etc. At the midway point between the plus and minus charges of the polarized field, you cross the zero point where there is temporarily a perfectly balanced polarity (albeit lasting a few microseconds during each magnetic rotation).

Through varying the velocity of the magnet and designing it with the right geometrical precision, you can enlarge the zero-point "windows" and direct the energy that tunnels through the windows onto a collector plate. The usual configuration is to re-route the energy from the collector plate back into the system, essentially replacing the 12V battery with a "perpetual motion" machine. With proper design, the energy collected from the vacuum (really, the etheric realm) will far exceed the 12V nominal value, thus resulting in over-unity, or the ability to produce more energy out than what goes in.

The Founders go on to state that the devices available today are only slightly over-unity due primarily to the current level of consciousness on Earth, but they say by 2015 the consciousness level would have risen to a point where these devices can be used to power homes and cars.

I had the pleasure to meet Thane Heins earlier this year and get a live demonstration of his zero point energy device.
