I am currently working on two books, one as a follow up to the Pre-Revolution Handbook with the working title Solutions. Another one on a very broad and equally deep project about the ‘Naga’.
My film work goes hand in hand with research for the writing. So, for instance, the interviews on the issue of Land Value taxation with Bruno Moser was the first for the Solutions book – which might essentially turn out as a series of interviews with people who have little known answers to major problems.
The book and film work on the Nagas is dealing with a layer of the most ancient ‘gods’, wo were crucially involved, it seems, in the process of patching together what is today called homo (not so) sapiens. It is also about one of the most ancient divides, between mankind and the rest of the ‘evolved’ community and about how to negotiate and pick up a new form of cooperation.
As of now it seems the old conflict involved at least three parties, two kinds of gods plus this crude melange, we today call humanity. This work will shed a new light on the most dark and dusty parts of our beginnings including the former neighborhood.
I had moved from New Delhi to Dar es Salaam a few years ago. Unlike India, I am quite intellectually ‘isolated’ here. Lots of sailing partners and safari travel partners, but apart from that we live in a bubble here, mostly surrounded by NGO and government folk, who, contrary to my Indian experience with such people, seem to be only able to talk about their work. Rarely does anybody here have real hobbies or passions – or any other perspective to pursue on weekends and evenings.
So, instead of attempting to instigate shallow discussions on Facebook, I decided to write a blog again and maybe through this find new people to talk about the issues that really interest me.
Van der Bellen ist ein grundsätzlich sympathischer Mensch, dessen Biographie rühren kann. Seine Familie floh 1917 aus Russland vor den Bolschewiken in das kleine Estland, dann weiter in das ebenso kleine Österreich. Es könnte erstaunen, dass das Kind dieser … Weiterlesen
Let’s just recap who all is involved in Syria:
- Various nutty fractions as IS, Al-Q., Hisbollah, etc.
- the Syrians
- Turkey (ex Ottoman umpire)
- USandA (ex Western empire)
- NATO (ex British umpire)
- Russia (emerging pan-EuraAsian [PEAE] empire)
- Saudi A. (empire of deception)
- Israel (not-allowed-to-be-named empire)
- Iran (soon part of PEAE; ex Persian empire)
- Koordisthan free state
…and then remember that Damascus, maybe the oldest city of mankind, features prominently in Islamic eschatology. It is where the reborn Jesus, son of Mary, the Mahdi and DaJaal (Antichrist) will meet for the last stand-off. It is also written that the Persians will align with ‘Rume’ (= Eastern Rome = orthodox church = now Russia) and against Turkey.
…then consider that a lot of the leaders of above empires (Neocons, Nutty fractions, Ottoman Freemasons, Orthodox church, etc.) pay more attention to prophecies and old books than you might want to know or wish for.
…then consider how prophecies become self-fulfilling if most parties (leaders & decision makers, not the dumb masses) agree on their usefulness.
…welcome to the future now. Interesting times.
Was just reading a Zero-Hedge article on the use of fire arms. Very American and culturally interesting – from an anthropological point of view.

I still believe that thought creates reality to a big degree. If it doesn’t create it because too weak and lacking strong intention, then it will attract an already existing reality and invite it. So, carrying weapons that are tools only to kill and not also to chop fire wood or cut bread, might invite ‘something’.
Following this logic, a pocket knife that is normally used as tool or to cut cheese and bread when camping, could still be used in a fight, but would not so much send out the message to universe that one is looking for a fight to eventually use the damn thing that one has been lugging around all this time.
I mean, if you carry something with you all the time, taking care to place it under your pillow, not forget it when going to the bathroom, etc – will constantly ‘charge’ this thing with attention. It’s like reinforcing a habit and building up a potential – which eventually will (independently of you?) search for a release valve.
Good that I live in a country of pangas not shotguns. They can also be used to cut grass and fetch coconuts from trees.
