TO UNDERSTAND HAARP: NWO's Scalar Electromagnetics: secret 20th century parallel tech path

I've been promising this description of scalar energy physics and technology ever since posting this:

Title: HAARP-watch: fake HAARP tremors rock earth deep beneath San Andreas Fault, Author: haarp-watch, Michel Chossudovsky, Date: 2004.12.11 07:02, Description: Mysterious tremors deep beneath the San Andreas Fault near the quake-prone town of Parkfield are shaking the earth's brittle crust, FAR BELOW THE REGION WHERE EARTHQUAKES NORMALLY STRIKE -- and scientists say THEY CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHAT'S HAPPENING or what the motions mean. Seismic researchers are monitoring the strange vibrations..."..."We see this kind of tremor activity inside volcanoes like Mount St. Helens," Nadeau said, "but that's due to the movement of rising magma, and in the tremors we've recorded there's NO EVIDENCE OF VOLCANISM and NO SEISMIC WAVES TYPICAL OF ORDINARY EARTHQUAKES." "In the US, the technology is being perfected under the High-frequency Active Aural Research Program (HAARP) as part of the ("Star Wars") Strategic Defence Initiative (SDI). Recent scientific evidence suggests that HAARP is fully operational and has the ability of potentially triggering floods, droughts, hurricanes and earthquakes. From a military standpoint, HAARP is a weapon of mass destruction. Potentially, it constitutes an instrument of conquest capable of selectively destabilising agricultural and ecological systems of entire regions."  http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2004/12/305741.shtml

Here it is.

TOM BEARDEN QUOTE: "I'm. . .trying to finish my book: Energy from the Vacuum: Concepts and Principles, and get it to the publisher for publication later this year. Hopefully the book will turn all the interested young grad students and post-docs loose in the free-energy area. They will not have to spend 30 agonizing years to get to where I am, and where a few others are, but can simply start here and go forward."
TO UNDERSTAND HAARP:

1.

First, I suggest you actually buy and read this book. Then you will understand the history of the reality of this parallel path of technology based on a submurged (top secret) aspect of physics research they DO NOT TEACH IN UNIVERSITIES in public. The author is actually a military industrial complex journalist named Nick Cook who writes regularly for Janes Military Review, one of the flagship publications of news about this industry. In other words, he's very straightforward, and only goes where the data shows or the history shows that he can document. He has a stolid reputation to maintain.

The Hunt for Zero Point: Inside the Classified World of Antigravity Technology -- by Nick Cook; Paperback
 http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0767906284/qid=1104891477/sr=2-1/ref=pd_ka_b_2_1/103-0296109-2306215

2.

Second, know that scalar energy has nothing to do with the way most 19th/20th century physics around thermodynamics works. The whole parallel path of technology is based on a whole parallel path of "untaught" science. "Untaught" at least in the sense of public universities: taught as a "need to know" basis and wholly within black operations research, from the things I have read about people who were let in on it. This secret physics parallel path of physical information about your world is just as real as thermodynamics, though most "open" science would pretend that thermodynamics is all that we have mostly. Hardly. This parallel path relates to much of Tesla's work which even as late as the 1990s--when extra notes of his turned up--still finds itself immediately seized by the "men in black" without any explanation, according to the people who had it seized from them.

3.

Know that there is a political economic rationale as well as a military industrial complex rationale to keep it out of sight. In other words, with a lot of money dedicated to thermodynamics-based technologies of energy, they would rather have the political strategic sense of a monopoly on making money off it without any competition from something much safer, faster, and more ecologically sound. A lot of the people working with this type of energy, technology, and physics--Tesla included--were Actually this now "hidden" technology was a competitor with oil/aviation/thernodynamics/physics based technologies THROUGH THE 1930s and immediately after WWII, when some astounding technologies were being created from it. HOWEVER, a lot of money already sunk on infrastructure (and Rockefeller money making, on oil) with aviation jet fuel, militaries, car industry, training, factories, etc.--would have to have been totally written off--OIL WOULD HAVE BEEN TOTALLY REMOVED FROM STATE POLITICAL SUPPORT. So with a powerful oil lobby [actually connected with Skull and Bones secret society from the beginning of the oil industry from the 1860s; see "2 web-videos of Kris Millegan taking about Skull & Bones [FoxNews LIVE; & at 9-11 Inquiry]", 23:48 Dec-05,  http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2004/12/305275.shtml ], it was simply developed in the private womb of the world's top secret programs for militaries instead.

This parallel path was based on motive power of elecromagnetics and ionized fields that were shown to work so well in the 1930s in nascent tests that they were immediately classified--particularly in the company known then as Martin, now, Martin Marietta. [The Hunt for Zero Point]. Some of this top secret information goes into the Princeton University's Institute for Advanced Studies, which worked on "war science" issues in the late 1930s through WWII. If you can believe it, with this information, they made a ship invisible by applying the physics to technology. (Project Rainbow; Philadelphia Project) [ http://www.bielek.com; The Hunt for Zero Point discusses the stories around this as well. However, note that Nick Cook's book is insufficient: Nick was unaware of the Bielek "information/testimony"--until yours truly was able to tell him about it in 2003, well after his book was published. It all connects.]

4.

THIS TECHNOLOGY IS BEING SPRUNG ON THE WORLD FROM THE 1990s onward! Mostly in covert applications, because of its history.

Know that according to Phil Schneider*, the Gulf War I (George H. W. Bush's war on Saddam, in 1990-1) WAS THE FIRST WAR TO USE THIS BLACK OP'S TECHNOLOGY IN A WAR THEATRE!  http://www.bielek.com. A few years after Gulf War I, a scalar hit was registered as well on the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City in 1995, another "real life test." [*-who was murdered in a few months after first speaking out about his black ops tech jobs, and the dangers he felt democracy was in for because of traitorous criminals he had seen using them for fascist political purposes in the USA and NATO.]

THIS TECHNOLOGY IS BEING SPRUNG ON THE WORLD FROM THE 1990s onward! Thus, you are required to know about this immediately. Given the earthquake standdown, focused at Aceh, Sumatra, it is very likely that this technology is being used to seed earthquakes that people WANT to cause damage for politcal purposes. Similarly, as Bush was sabre-ratting against Iran last year, we have an instance of the "out of the blue" quality of the Bam, Iran earthquake. Bam, Iran is an ancient city that has stood for over 2000 years. Then, suddenly it has a devestating earthquake WHERE THE EPICENTER from what I have read came from directly below the city!

Plus the Aum Shinryoko (sp?) Japanese organized crime religious cult (and science research group) seemed to have possessed this technology and used it in the Australian outback in the 1990s. They may have been connected with the earthquake hit on Kobe, Japan in the 1990s--which this group made a public announcement DAYS BEFORE IT HAPPENED THAT KOBE WOULD BE HIT.

This may have been what the U.S. Secretary of State was referring to when he talked of an "eco-type of terrorism!"

U.S. Secretary of State, William Cohen, said in 1997: "Others [terrorists] are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves... So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations... It's real, and that's the reason why we have to intensify our [counterterrorism] efforts." --- Secretary of Defense William Cohen at an April 1997 counterterrorism conference sponsored by former Senator Sam Nunn. Quoted from DoD News Briefing, Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen, Q&A at the Conference on Terrorism, Weapons of Mass Destruction, and U.S. Strategy, University of Georgia, Athens, Apr. 28, 1997.

"In short,. . .the Secretary of Defense of the United States confirmed that there are indeed novel kinds of EM weapons, right now and have been for some time, which have been and are being used to (1) initiate earthquakes, (2) engineer the weather and climate, and (3) initiate the eruption of volcanoes. We wrote about those exact uses of the weaponry decades ago. Several nations now have such weapons. Three of them (two on one side and the other on a hostile side) are even firing practice shots into Western Australia, as a convenient test range."

Representative Dennis Kucinich attempts to have such HAARP technologies and "planet threatening weapons" banned in his 2001 bill, though the sections about HAARP and these technologies were removed under pressure, according to Kucinich.

The USSR attempted to have the U.S. agree to the total banning of scalar electromagnetic warfare in the 1970s. The U.S. refuses! That should tell you something.

INTERESTING FULL CIRCLE

Know that everything about scalar energy was actually in Maxwell's eletromagnetic equations of the late 19th century. It was only a set of the equations that were left out in technological applications, because it was "unrequired" for working in thermodynamics applications. However, if you put them back in, you have the very byzantine information to design technology for scalar applications.

6.

SCALAR MISSING HERITAGE OF 19TH CENTURY, MADE GOOD IN EARLY 20TH CENTURY--UNTIL MADE TOP SECRET!

Thus, scalar is a missing heritage of the "Second Industrial Revolution" (as it has been called), the chemical/electromagnetic technological revolution of the late 1800s onward.

It is based on a different type of energy, which requires a completely different type of technology to harness. To understand that interaction between hidden science and its hidden technology. It helps to read this:

Scalar Wars
The Brave New World of Scalar Electromagnetics
by Bill Morgan
For the past six months I have been undergoing the greatest paradigm shift I have ever had to go through. It has rattled my nerves and shaken my bones. This intense adjustment of my "world" has come about by studying the information given by Col. Tom Bearden at his website Cheniere. The new knowledge there has necessitated a total revision of my ideas about physical reality, the world we live in, and the future of humanity. This paradigm shifting even actually made me dizzy on certain days as I tried to absorb and digest Bearden's vast amount of information. I am not a scientist at all, just a layman, and I have little comprehension of the math and high physics of this new science called "Scalar Electromagnetics." But there is a great deal of information at Cheniere which needs to become common knowledge as fast as possible, for the sake of the survival of life on earth. To that end I have put together this small primer of Bearden's ideas, as a kind of "beginner's guide" to his website. (I have tried to underline certain words and phrases which are part of the new "jargon" of talking about these "new" phenomena. Also I have taken the liberty of bolding certain words and phrases to help them stick in the mind).
(Note: Throughout "EM" means "electromagnetic," and "LW" means "longitudinal wave")

"Electric power is everywhere present in unlimited quantities and can drive the world's machinery without the need of coal, oil, gas, or any other of the common fuels." ~~ Nikola Tesla

"At any point and at any time, one can freely and inexpensively extract enormous EM energy flows directly from the active vacuum itself." ~~ Tom Bearden

"That is the real hope of the future: that we get a generation of young fellows, with excellent skills, who now know where all the skeletons got hidden in the closet, and understand that the electrical engineering model arbitrarily assumes an inert vacuum environment (falsified for more than a half century in particle physics) and a local flat spacetime (falsified for nearly a century by general relativity)." ~~ Tom Bearden

"One can extract all the EM energy from the vacuum one wishes, anywhere, anytime, with ridiculous ease. [simply at the coordinates you want, above ground or below ground...] One can produce that "electrical wind of energy" at will, by making a simple dipole and then letting it alone. The only energy problem is in how to then intercept some of that energy flow and "catch" it..." ~~ Tom Bearden

"I'm slowly improving little by little, working as much as I'm able to and trying to finish my book: Energy from the Vacuum: Concepts and Principles, and get it to the publisher for publication later this year. Hopefully the book will turn all the interested young grad students and post-docs loose in the free-energy area. They will not have to spend 30 agonizing years to get to where I am, and where a few others are, but can simply start here and go forward. Since speed to develop energy from the vacuum is of the essence because of the world situation, I'm moving on it as fast as I am physically able to. Meanwhile, working with the AIAS (Alpha Foundation's Institute for Advanced Study), the AIAS (15 authors) has now gotten about 20 scientific papers published in leading journals (Foundations of Physics, Foundations of Physics Letters, Physical Scripta, Optik, etc.) dealing with electromagnetic energy from the vacuum. Several more are either approved for publication or in the review process also. So slowly we are getting it into the mainstream scientific literature. Hopefully it will be in time, but it's cutting it close. Very best wishes, Tom Bearden"

FOURTH IMPORTANT POINT that the 3 all link in scalar power... 13.Dec.2004 15:10
more link

In conclusion, a discussion of HAARP requires a discussion of scalar energy. . . .

To summarize, all that has been sourced above are the three areas that I think should be kept in mind about HAARP. All I think that is worth remembering as one sentence here is that HAARP is one technolgy that has many different application infrastructures: (1) scalar/electromagetic (volcano-earthquake--U.S. Secretary of Defense shows the technology exists; discussions from the mid 1970s sourced above; Japanese terrorism in 1990s, etc.), (2) climate/weather (interviews with various Wright-Patterson AFB scientists, the whole town of Espanola, Canada; various air traffic controllers from Vancouver to New England), (3) and biological (mental states; the information from the 1960s above about human brain waves and earth resonances, and changing standing waves affects different moods).

HAARP = "NUCLEAR SIZED EXPLOSIONS WITHOUT RADIATION"

"Begich found eleven other APTI Patents. They told how to make "Nuclear-sized Explosions without Radiation," Power-beaming systems, over-the-horizon radar, detection systems for missiles carrying nuclear warheads, ***electromagnetic pulses previously produced by thermonuclear weapons and other Star-Wars tricks. This cluster of patents underlay the HAARP weapon system.***



Nice summary article on HAARP at link below. It's a book review of the result of a public research team looking into HAARP patents and other military discussions in print about it.

The Military's Pandora's Box
By Dr. Nick Begich and Jeane Manning [Earthpulse Press]

AUDIO!
Hear Nick talk about this in depth on Art Bell*
(*If Media link goes to a blank page, just Reload browser) [I was unable to get the audio link to work.]

This article was prepared to provide a summary of the contents of a book written in 1995 which describes an entirely new class of weapons. The weapons and their effects are described in the following pages. The United States Navy and Air Force have joined with the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, to build a prototype for a ground based "Star Wars" weapon system located in the remote bush country of Alaska.

. . .

The military says the HAARP system could:

*
Give the military a tool to replace the electromagnetic pulse effect of atmospheric thermonuclear devices (still considered a viable option by the military through at least 1986) [read that one once more until it sinks in]

*
Replace the huge Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) submarine communication system operating in Michigan and Wisconsin with a new and more compact technology

*
Be used to replace the over-the-horizon radar system that was once planned for the current location of HAARP, with a more flexible and accurate system

*
Provide a way to wipe out communications [and cause blackouts on electrical grids] over an extremely large area, while keeping the military's own communications systems working

*
Provide a wide area earth-penetrating tomography which, if combined with the computing abilities of EMASS and Cray computers, would make it possible to verify many parts of nuclear nonproliferation and peace agreements [or pinpoint handy eco-terrorism geological fault lines many miles under the earth's crust...]

*
Be a tool for geophysical probing to find oil, gas and mineral deposits over a large area

*
Be used to detect incoming low-level planes and cruise missiles, making other technologies obsolete

Troll spam above. 05.Jan.2005 02:09

Peter Norton

Looks like the trolls are busy spamming it up on Haarp. Must be concerned about growing awareness of the new era of Haarp geophysical warfare.

The technology is nothing exotic in fact. Much more simple than nuclear physics--just radio electronics, electromagnetism and geophysics. While haarp is billed as exclusively high frequency, however, it also can indirectly generate ELF-extremely low frequency waves--which is pertinent to concerns about seismic warfare. This is done by simply modulating (switching on and off)the haarp HF transmission at a very low frequency. The ionosphere itself (electrojet currents) is used as a virtual antenna which generates relatively high power ELF transmissions. These long radiowaves can penetrate earth and seawater (they are used for naval communications to submarines), can be used to create standing waves, and if tuned to a resonant frequency, can stimulate geophysical instabilities, on fault lines for example, to ultimately release massive energy--in this case as an earthquake.

....when to stop reading... 05.Jan.2005 06:44

Just Ponderin'

Whenever someone says you MUST buy this book to understand--that's the time to put on your skeptical spectacles, if you know what I mean. I continue to be distressed at the appalling amount of ignorance that is spread over the internet and taken as gospel truth. Be a critical reader, folks.

Be critical but do not dismiss before reading... 05.Jan.2005 10:29

a critical reader

Obviously one has to read sceptically and verify the sources...

SSomeone's concerned that books written on HAARP are being finally published on the net. HAARP is supposed to be kept under the hat and ordinary people are not supposed to know what the military has been doing to the planet. Imagine blowing holes into the atmosphere, heating up the ionosphere...- letting more radiation rain on the planet!

Imagine if everyone knew of these secret destructive experiments going on! If you tell naive people they just look at you sceptically and dismiss you as a nut. BUT if you tell them that there are well documented books on this topic,that there are ex-military people concerned who urge the public to look into the actions of the military then they can do their own research. Remember, the taxpayers you and I pay for these very dangerous,very irresponsible acts of the military. The people own the miltary yet the military pisses magnoelectric radiation and god knows what other germs on them.

These books do not just inform, they call indirectly for actions; they suggest that the military budgets must be shaved to the point that they are under civilian control not the other way around.
Soldiers fought fascism in the second world war. 40 million people died to prevent military dictatorships and ironically the taxpayers are now funding the most unimaginable form of fascism.

IT'S ALL THERE folks, the facts are all out there and postings as the above one are very revealing - mostly they come from the well paid watch dogs unpatriotic non-readers. SOME SS dogs ARE WORRIED ENOUGH TO DISCOURAGE US FROM READING.

SAVE OUR BEAUTIFUL PLANET - if you love it enough.

well, congratulations 05.Jan.2005 10:52

You're actually the first person I've seen on Indymedia who's been able to back up his allegations about HAARP with concise arguments instead of a mixture of utter nonsense and absolute gobbledygook.

"While haarp is billed as exclusively high frequency, however, it also can indirectly generate ELF-extremely low frequency waves--which is pertinent to concerns about seismic warfare. This is done by simply modulating (switching on and off)the haarp HF transmission at a very low frequency."

That sounds like a form of amplitude modulation. There's millions of HF transmitters worldwide (i.e. the ones used for more normal communications and broadcast purposes), most of which use some form or another of amplitude modulation. I have no idea what their cumulative output power is, but it's got to be immense in comparison to HAARP -- there's on the order of thousands of shortwave broadcast transmitters (each with a typical power in hundreds of kilowatts). Wouldn't all of this transmitting activity be causing a profound destabilization? Shouldn't we have noticed an alarming frequency of gradually increasing earthquakes since the dawn of the radio age?

"The ionosphere itself (electrojet currents) is used as a virtual antenna which generates relatively high power ELF transmissions."

Hmmm. As I've been led to understand it, this process is relatively inefficient. Why would they bother generating ELF in a roundabout way like this instead of just generating it directly?

Speaking of directly generated ELF electromagnetic radiation, every piece of wire connected to a commercial alternating-current power grid is an ELF transmitter (at 50 or 60 Hz depending on which part of the world you're in). This sort of gets back to another variant of a question I just asked -- shouldn't we have been seeing an increase of earthquakes as electrification became widespread? And why aren't there lots of damaging earthquakes happening in places like Northern Europe or the Eastern Seaboard, places that have been highly electrified with AC for a century or more?

"These long radiowaves can penetrate earth and seawater (they are used for naval communications to submarines), can be used to create standing waves, and if tuned to a resonant frequency, can stimulate geophysical instabilities, on fault lines for example, to ultimately release massive energy--in this case as an earthquake."

I wonder if you could be a little more specific here and try to detail the exact mechanisms by which this is supposed to happen.

To "critical reader" 05.Jan.2005 19:37

Actually, I'm

much more concerned about the junk science in those books and (even more) by the groupthink and authoritarian attitudes of those who treat the books as gospel truth.

So much of what I've seen posted on Indymedia about HAARP is written by (and references things written by) folks who obviously have little or no knowledge of either physics or mathematics, and yet who proclaim them experts on such subjects.

That's bad enough, but their attitude towards skepticism is even worse. It's outright hostility and name-calling. One of the really good things about science is how so many of its values reflect the values of anti-authoritarianism. You're not supposed to just accept something on someone's say-so. If you're unconvinced, you're supposed to doubt others claims. If you make a claim, you're expected back it up with experimental evidence, and moreover you're expected to describe your experiments in enough detail that those who doubt your assertions about your results can try the experiments themselves. Respect for ideas is based on convincing others, not coercing them.

These values are completely absent on the part of most who harp on HAARP here. The attitude appears to instead be one of religious fervor, following one's leaders (i.e. the authors of the books making the farfetched claims) blindly, and raining down a rhetoric of hellfire and damnation on those apostates who dare commit heresy.

Perhaps worst of all is how all this quasi-religious conspiracy-mongering sucks up the personal energy of many concerned people and diverts them from spending time fighting very real threats to our beautiful planet, things like imperialism and global warming.

And while, unlike Peter, I'm yet to be convinced that HAARP is an earthquake-triggering weapons system, suppose he's right and it is. He's at least posted something that seems to start out as a logical and concise argument. (I hope he comes back and addresses my doubts about it.) I really don't think he is, but suppose for sake of argument he's right: in that case the extremely poor arguments on the part of the conpiracy-mongers have actually (as Peter contents) helped cover up the very conspiracy they purport to expose, by virtue of their extremely poor quality.

All of this has gotten me thinking seriously about maybe teaching a Freeskool class on the physics behind HAARP. To that end, I went down to the PSU bookstore earlier this week and took a peek at the text for the Physics Department's "Electricity and Magnetism" course. Continually scattered throughout the book, after new claims are made, are invitations for the reader to stop and think for him or herself whether the conclusion just made (or the result of the calculation just made) is sensible. That, especially, came as a breath of fresh air and stands into stark contrast with the mindset of the conspiracists I've run into.

And that's why I side with the physicists on this one.

Science values and... 05.Jan.2005 21:37

anti-authoritarianism

The scientific method of questioning was to inculcate the values of scepticism and the questioning of "authority" - a given! But military scientific research does not respect the anti-authoritarianism values nor does it allow civilian scientists or anyone for that matter to question the value of the army research.

The army is a killing machine and its scientists killers in kind or in mind.

Re: Science's values 06.Jan.2005 11:01

-

Quite so; there's many instances of scientists enthusiastically gathering knowledge that it's pretty certain will be used for nefarious purposes.

My statement was "many of [science's] values reflect the values of anti-authoritarianism". I chose my words carefully; I deliberately chose not to type "science is perfect" or "science's values are exactly the same as those of anti-authoritarianism".

The biggest problem with science is an error of omission: research is to be pursued for its own sake, under the hidden premise that it's always worthwhile. There's nothing in the scientific method about examining the motives of the person funding your research and considering the ethical implications thereof.

This lack of any intrinsic morality lets science easily be exploited for evil purposes.

That said, the logical response to the deficiency is to address it, rather than to abandon the system wholesale, thus throwing out the baby with the bathwater. I see no way in which a movement based on groupthink and blind belief can produce any semblance of liberation.
