11:49 AM (3 minutes ago) Hi Guy: I did my master's thesis on "radical ecology" in 2000 - along with "sound-current nondualism." Thanks for your "connecting the dots." I finished my master's degree at U of Minnesota by training intensively with a Chinese qigong master - a Buddhist Shaolin-trained spiritual healer. I got the credits through the African-studies department from a female professor who taught the "race, class and gender" program. So I was challenging Western philosophy, the "Natural Law" from Aristotle and Plato, that creates a natural hierarchy. What I discovered is that spirits are real, energy healing is real and precognition is real.That, sir, is quite a story. Thank you for sharing.Guy
|How Climate Change Covered China in Smog|
So Guy - here's the deal. I grew up in Minneapolis, son of a prominent attorney and him son of a Presbyterian minister. So in the 1980s I was fishing every day, communing with Nature in a trance, while also studying classical piano. I had this Pythagorean insight as I studied music theory privately with a former University music professor and my piano teacher, his wife. So from reading "Northern Sun News" - a local progressive activist zine featuring Winona LaDuke, and from Sting, the musician, talking about the Amazon rainforests, and from seeing my own local lake get polluted - all the crayfish, turtles, muskrats, and fish got killed off - I knew we were in deep trouble.
My first full time job was the summer out of high school, doing environmental door to door canvassing for Citizens for a Better Environment - we - a pesky female lawyer - sued 3M, one of the top toxic waste polluters - for the biggest fine yet - in 1989. Then I went to Hampshire College and I studied the Tao Te Ching, and Gregory Bateson's "Mind and Nature: a necessary unity." When I took quantum mechanics as my first physics course - the assistant was also reading Gregory Bateson's book. The physics professor taught us about quantum entanglement and this got me intrigued. He said everyone should take quantum physics as their first physics course since classical physics is not the foundation of science.
I had tested in the 98th percentile in biology on my ACT, 96% in social science, 92% in math but I bombed the English reading comprehension. I think I just ran out of time - but I had read advanced English literature in high school and did my high school paper on Thomas Mann's, "The Magic Mountain." I argued that we needed to confront death in order to properly understand life. At Hampshire College there is no grades and my dormitory had "clothing optional" and everyone dropped acid when it was someone's birthday. I hid in my room, studying music composition, and film and philosophy. But the student next to me was a cab driver from New York City who had been "studying" Buddhism for 8 years. haha.
So I switched to UW-Madison (less expensive, less isolated, more populist-radical) but in the mean time I was invited by two high school female friends to go to Alaska. We ended up, after working in a fish factory, hitch-hiking 9 rides north to Talkeetna, to work for a sled dog home-steader. We lived in a cabin in the wilderness - no running water, no phone, no electricity, no heat - for four months. Actually it was just me and the one female, the other returned. The man had been around the world; he escaped Philly when he got caught with LSD in the 1960s - not wanting to embarrass his dad, a big Jewish grocer in town. He joined the mercenaries against the Zimbabwe African revolution. Ironic since I had a professor in political economy at Hampshire who had supported the Zimbabwe revolution. So this sled dog trainer was reading our mail, and it was not safe. When the snow was 6 feet deep in December, with our beautiful view of Denali, we 'escaped" with the help of this Mormon couple who had moved into the old Bar, 2 miles south. They had met with us about the end of the world, reading the Bible, about how Saddam Hussein was the anti-Christ.
So at UW-Madison I was reading Noam Chomsky and I realized just how mass-mind controlled everyone was. I protested every day with the UW-Greens and even got paid as an office job. I studied Ecofeminism, and moved into a hippie-punk Commune Cooperative house, part of a 10 house collective. We have people from the East and West coasts - the counterculture scene. My dad gave me a Norwegian Arne Naess book on Deep Ecology - and I got threatened out of the music composition program. My transcriptions of Schoenberg from piano sonata to string quartet - were Communist! I was told to redo my work even though I had already gotten As and Bs. Gee maybe it was because I was constantly protesting against NAFTA and U.S. imperialism in Haiti, etc.
So I studied conservation biology and sustainable development in Costa Rica for a semester - the School for Field Studies in 1992 - I saw sloths and a flock of toucans and read E.O. Wilson. I confronted our "USAID" speaker about U.S. imperialism. Maybe that's when I was put on the "radar." haha. No - actually after I graduated and moved back to the Twin Cities I was then put in the Earth First! Journal as the "local" contact and then I noticed that my phone was tapped by the FBI. We discovered out of Madison - that just a couple dozen activists had over 900 pages of FBI surveillance - but the FBI complained it was too much to "redact" all those pages requested via FOIA.
So then I was producing my own activist zine - and it got reviewed as the worst news possible - I called it PaddleFish First! - a species over 300,000,000 million years old about to go extinct. And the person reviewing it had their own "zine" - while they lived out of a trailer - the "Little Free Press" - and they got killed by their son in a murder-suicide. So I hope my zine didn't have too much influence in that tragedy. But soon I had prisoners ordering the zine and I mailed it out free and distributed it free - it connected all the "progressive issues." Meanwhile I studied Slavoj Zizek and Noam Chomsky. I worked full time overnights and i was a union steward for a local that formed out of worker's strike at the "relay service" for the deaf community.
But I saw a flier for a Qigong Master - a female from San Francisco - but a Chinese lady. Effie P. Chew. I was skeptical and so I called up asking for my fee to be reduced. She gave me half off - so it was only $10. At the time I was vegan and living with my girlfriend - we were estranged - and she had celiac sprue from eating wheat - she was Irish - so gluten intolerance. So when we attended the qigong master talk - she sent qi into the room - it was at St. Mary's University. I could feel strong qi force - a magnetic force pushing my hands apart. Then as everyone was leaving this obese female security guard wandered in, asking what was going on in "here" since the "fuse got blown in the room behind." I knew this qigong master was for real but my girlfriend could not feel anything. I think because she was sick, her energy channels were too blocked up.
So in 1996 I worked for Greenpeace and helped my girlfriend go to Africa - to Morocco to do conservation biology through the Peace Corps. So then Greenpeace sent me to an invited tabling at Pine Ridge Reservation. A music show had been organized with Chuck Berry driving up to perform. He sat in his Caddy alone - and no one hardly was in the audience. Buffy St. Marie performed. Chuck Berry - even though he was what 70 years old? he had more energy than the rest of the audience combined!! But Sturgis was going on - and so the outreach was too limited. But the organizer was also a traditional Shaman and he had tried to join the Green party but dismissed it as too white and too mainstream. He gave us a tour of Pine Ridge and showed us the uranium water pollution from uranium mining.
So in 1996 my Greenpeace "boss" - really the same age or so - said his biggest concern was global warming. We had been protesting French nuclear testing. But Germany shut us down! Greenpeace International said they rely on volunteers for activism and so don't need paid canvassers in the U.S. I had written a "manifesto" called the Fundamental Force that combined music theory, parapsychology, ecofeminism and radical social analysis. Slavoj Zizek sent me a postcard saying it looked very interesting and he would read it and get back to me. His next book "The Plague of Fantasies" was an attack against ecofeminism and parapsychology - the "New Age." He threw in music theory too. haha. He had misunderstood my arguments but attacked me, not mentioning my name of course.
Meanwhile I was interning on an organic farm - learning that farming truly is very hard work. I was reading Carl Sagan's skeptical attacks on the paranormal and also reading Jim Schnabel's book on remote viewing. We were eating these big organic green salads and a female farmer coworker demanded I go into town to the farmer's market. The deal was we got weekends off - but one of the farm managers was pushing us to do marketing. I got mad and refused to go - I had worked very hard all week. Suddenly - I didn't even say anything - i was so mad - but the female suddenly reacted with a shock - she yelled out. I could feel this electromagnetic energy shoot out of me when I got very angry and she reacted to it.
I thought that was strange. Oh I forgot to mention that in 1995 I had been keeping a journal and I woke up at 2:30 am from a dream that was more real than being awake! I had dreamt of my activist friends standing on the roof of a house, standing with Native American activists, holding a banner to protect a forest. A very specific dream and I wrote - I think this dream is predicting the future!
So then I got into graduate school and I began practicing qigong with the Chinese community while I also organized sanctions against the U.S. corporations doing business with the military regime in Burma. I visited this Tibetan monk and I was listening to him very intently. When I got home - I thought I had a headache but I realized it was focused exactly in the center of my forehead. I realized I had activated that "chakra" point. And when I first began the qigong I felt strong heat in the lower tan tien. I kept up the vegan diet and I fell in love with this Venezuelan indigenous female from the Andes who lived in the same house with me.
So I had to cry in public to get the University administrators to finally consider the slave labor military regime in Burma as a problem and the University then divested $1.5 million in stocks from Total Oil. But the Treasurer was a female African-American and she told me she was going after tobacco stocks next. The University administration targeted her emails and personal files and charged her with having financial difficulties in the past and fired her. She filed a civil rights lawsuit but the judge threw it out. Years later I noticed her son had got arrested for buying a "hot" car on the internet.
So I was working, washing dishes, at the Resource Center of the Americas - and I got involved then in sweatshop activism. Then in 1998 I went to Venezuela to the Andes to study the conservation biology of the Paramo - the mountains. But I was still in love with the female indigenous activist friend - she looked Tibetan. She brought her son and we were just all Platonic but I got super hot heat in my heart. So I sang at night to try to dispell the love-heat that was overwhelming and suddenly I went into this trance vision that I could not stop.
Suddenly my whole life flashed before me but not chronologically - it was psychologically. So I could see how one event had "resolved" an energy blockage from previous years - but had done so subconsciously to me. As my life deep meaning poured out of my heart as a vision in the Andes - it must have lasted maybe 20 minutes - I was too stunned to be able to tell my friend. I sat by this creek the next day. I never told her about the vision. But I did meet bare-footed peasants who had never voted before but said they were going to vote for Chavez. My female friend called up her other male friend and had us clear rocks from a field so we could plant traditional pink corn that a friend had given me. She told me later that the pink corn had grown.
So then back in 1998 there was a Native American "encampment" to protect a sacred confluence of the Mississippi and Minnesota river with still primary maple-basswood forest. It was considered the spiritual origin center. I got arrested doing civil disobedience. By now I had gotten arrested several times - protesting against Project ELF, a first strike electromagnetic nuclear submarine transmission system that killed wildlife from electromagnetic pollution, I got arrested against nuclear waste being stored on the Mississippi river, I got arrested against depleted uranium and land mind production. Minnesota is considered - or Minneapolis was considered to be "liberal." haha. I got arrested three times protesting against genocidal sanctions on Iraq....
Anyway - so I was looking at this newspaper photo - and guess what - it was of my activist friends standing on the roof of a house, holding a banner, with Native Americans, to protect the forest. My dream had come true - and the Minnehaha State encampment had been the cover story of the Earth First! Journal several times. I got arrested there and I told the judge, citing my research, that in fact that 1805 treaty was not valid, according to Professor Fowell who wrote a history of Minnesota. (Fowell also praised Hitler and promoted eugenics). In other words the Indians still owned that land. The Native American activist thanked me and wished he had known earlier. I had taken a class from Winona LaDuke and did my research paper on the Minnehaha Free State and I brought it down to the encampment. I told my white activist friends to give the paper to the Native Americans - but I guess they were too busy to read it. haha.
O.K. later on they began lawsuits to get their land back. But I began working at Clean Water Action but I knew already that it was "retirement" - I worked part-time and I continued my sweatshop activism. Paul Wellstone regularly visited our office - and we worked with him - until he, as a senator critiquing the CIA in Colombia - got "disappeared" in a plane crash. The I discovered that my Liberal Studies graduate program - my advisor was promoting Werner von Braun as his personal mentor with no mention of the former S.S. Major having supervised mass slave labor. When I pointed that out in my paid activist Op-Ed column for the MN Daily, serving some 50,000 people at the U of Minnesota Twin Cities campus - the professor emailed me a threat stating only this: I will personally make sure you are never published in the MN Daily again.
It didn't matter since it was the end of the semester and my final activist expose op-ed was "Truth Repressed by Psychic Vampires." I connected qigong training with Western philosophy, etc. haha. No one understood me - but I had been reading Professor David F. Noble. My master's thesis was about radical ecology being dismissed as a religion but in fact Western civilization is a religion based on Freemasonic philosophy going back to Plato - as David F. Noble exposed.
So finally after I threatened to go on hunger strike - the U of MN President emailed me asking me not to go on hunger strike - "unlimited" - and that I had "done enough." I had written a detailed expose of the 300 corporations doing "business" as science at the U of MN. An adminstrator was exposed - "for enough money will give you tomatoes as big as basketballs!" he told Monsanto. A U of MN biology professor - Phil Regal - said he thought there were "six" of me when I asked him a question at a Greens party meeting. He told me how Monsanto had taken over the biology department at the U of MN. I had protested the U of MN "State of the Union" address by passing out my expose of the U of MN to all the professors. A professor complained - but this goes back to the founding of the University! I said yep - I exposed how the founder Pillsbury had been in Skull and Bones. haha.
Also I exposed Cargill - with their Freemason connections - the largest private corporation in the world spreading starvation by "dumping food" that wipes out local farmers in 100 countries. And then my "Liberal Studies" department organized a JFK assassination conference and Peter Dale Scott attended but he and other professors rejected the claims of the organizer - Jim Fetzer. Fetzer was the the liberal studies advisor at Duluth campus - up north - but he also had a military background, just like the advisor Art Harkin who had praised Werner von Braun. So then it turned out Fetzer not only had all of his books published by the Moonies - but the Moonies had moved their publishing office and professor network to just off the U of MN campus!! Paragon House Press. I went to their office to look for a Ken Wilber book since I was critiquing Ken Wilber in my master's thesis.
So then I emailed Peter Dale Scott and he told me to be careful. When Fetzer published a book about how Paul Wellstone had been killed by the CIA - I considered it to be a "taking the velvet glove off the iron fist" moment. After 9/11 when one of the generals announced he was told by the White House we were going to attack a list of 7 countries - I knew it was game over for activism. Then John Judge came to town and gave his talk about how his parents had worked for the Pentagon and that Vietnam had been planned decades in advanced with the numbers of U.S. soldiers to be killed all planned out. Judge knew about the secret military UFOs that he called Unidentified Fascist Objects. In 1997 I had a close encounter with one of these secret equilateral black triangle craft that go Mach 9 but also go very slowly over the tree lines. I could have hit it with a rock but I didn't dare take my eyes off it! haha.
So meanwhile my ex-girlfriend had been in Morocco and when I visited her we went to the most traditional Berber village - and it was controlled by the females. The government had just put in a gravel road but the Berber dialect needed a University professor to decipher. They spoke in rhyming verse like Shakespearean English! The Berber females used humanure compost to grow their vegetables and potatoes and wheat. Wild sheep were herded for wool and meat and the females made all the clothing. The houses were all adobe in funky designs to slow down any invaders. The females had tattoos from when the Arabs would kidnap the females - they got tattooed when the females were "used up." So instead the females all just preemptively tattooed themselves to prevent being kidnapped, even though that was from hundreds of years ago.
So anyway I knew people could live off the land and I had some taste of it. But when I finished my master's degree - I had dropped out of the University since i was so disgusted with the corrupt administration that censored the professors. Even all my emails had been wiped out when I exposed the attorney who controlled the university "joking" about how the professors on the sweatshop committee "better have tenure." I knew the whole system was a joke. In 1999 I was at Seattle protesting for the WTO Shutdown - and I stayed in a hotel room with two young beautiful females - activist friends. One I had already broken up with - a 19 year old. I was almost ten years older than her! The other was a sweatshop activist and we began dating. But I broke up with her also - since she was not radical enough. Actually she broke up with me first.
So when I first attended the qigong master class - he had given a talk at my Spiritual Healing class through the Liberal Studies department - and he walked past me, sending qi in me and I saw bright yellow light and I felt this amazing love - better than any sex I had. haha. So I knew this was very real. Then I began studying qigong and Taoist alchemy and I dropped out of school but my parents wanted me to finish the degree. So I joined back by doing the intensive qigong training as "self-designed" credit. I went a week on just a half glass of water but the qi energy kept getting stronger. I attended the Level 3 healing retreat and the qigong master in full lotus was sending out spirits out of the top of his head - they were shaped like humans and would "break off" and float out to heal the students. Then I also saw spirits float in - yellow light shaped as humans but float in from outside the room. They hovered around the qigong master!
I never said anything to anyone about this but the qigong master said that since someone in the room could see these things he would explain what they were - and he corroborated what I thought they were. He also said qigong masters could smell cancer as rotting flesh - and I could smell that as well emanating from this one man in the front of the room who had traveled up from Arizona just to get special healing. I had been studying the biography of the most famous Buddhist master in Thailand who had similar experiences. The qigong master I studied with is http://springforestqigong.com - Chunyi Lin.
So then I healed my mom of her "smoker's legs" - and she no longer needed surgical stockings. But she screamed bloody murder at me for having fasted for a week. I was very emotionally sensitive and the energy got so strong. This female at the local anarchist cafe - when we made eye contact from 15 feet away - suddenly energy shot out of me and I had this internal orgasm shoot up my spine and I knew that she had experienced the same thing. But I repressed that experience, not able to process it. So then I tested the third eye opening - I stopped training when in full lotus I experienced this strong spacetime vortex as the room spinning around me. I had to know what that was - it was the Emptiness. The qigong master told me I had an "enlightenment experience."
I had already ate some food - and this spinning was from my spirit leaving my body with out enough qi. I had "lost" the qi after the female had made eye contact with me. I didn't understand the necessity for the celibacy - and how difficult it was. haha. I knew that the Emptiness was equally in everything - and so I began dumpster diving with this local hippy homeless lady who had dropped out of society after she had dropped LSD in the 1960s. I ate "bad" bread - with fungus - and I then healed a local activist of scabies - by sucking up his disease. Then I sucked up my data computer manager at Clean Water Action - his illness of some kind of bacterial gum disease that gave him horrid stench. haha.
But I had females chasing after me - and I experienced telepathy at work - electromagnetic qi emanating out of the center of the brain. I gave a talk on qigong healing and then I took all my African-American coworkers out to eat at the local Chinese restaurant. They all ate meat and I thought I should eat meat too to increase my strength. So that closed up my energy channels more. I stopped practicing since the energy was too intense but the qigong master stuck his finger to my forehead and charged up the center of my brain with magnetic bliss. I wanted to see if it was permanent so I stopped practicing for 2 months. Yep - it did not go away. I could "flex" my pineal gland now - permanently.
I decided to study Western science to translate my experiences back into science so that my family would not think I was schizoid. haha. I promoted quantum biology and qigong on PZ Myer's blog - the "top" science blog. I exposed the "salaried sell- outs" - I had blogged the Actual Matrix Plan on GNN - an activist website forum. I had stated how science would always under-predict global warming because science did not take into account the feed backs - the nonlinear feed backs. I continued dumpster diving while sitting in full lotus several hours a day, sending out love energy to strangers in public. I had strangers thank me for the healings. But mainly I used up my energy for free psychic healings. haha.
I had to quit my job due to a female coworker stalking me for my energy - and also I had to keep eating antiseptics like garlic and tea tree oil - because the energy was sucking - pulling up my anaerobic bacteria into the skull. Also my job had been replaced by a "speed dialer" and I had exposed how my environmental nonprofit was funded $1 million a year by the Rockefellers and was fake - since the IRS had cracked down on it after protesting nuclear waste.
That was in 2009 - I had been riding an old 3 speed bike from England - all winter long in Minnesota - for 10 years and after the RNC protests, my friends had been "pre-arrested" having their cell phones tracked. I never had a cell phone since I knew the electromagnetic pollution hazards and also the tracking hazards. My cousin, same age as me, has a big real estate business and now a fracking oil train shipping yard - but he is recovering from brain cancer. Too much cell phone use! I biked out of the city and I toured the local Theravedan Buddhist monasteries. My Burmese refuge friend was now a well-paid hospital adminstrator who started a monastery - but the monk he brought over was fake!
I had to leave his monastery in the middle of the night after his monk perv attacked me. It was freezing cold rain and I dumpster-dived some food and burned toilet paper in a porta potty to get some heat. Then I went to more monasteries farther south - sleeping outside, on my old three speed. I went to a hospital about 200 miles south of the Twin Cities - to see if I could get free money for being schizoid but instead this very beautiful blond young nurse seductively asked me to stay at her place for the night. I turned her down and finally I returned to my parents who were living on a 10 acre forest tract.
I began removing the invasive buckthorn with a pick axe. My dad had fried his brain from his far-right world view - from too much chain smoking and drinking. I continued having precognitive visions and doing psychic healing. When I had this thought that my dad just died, as I was in full lotus - I ran up to his room but I didn't want to disturb his sleep. The next morning I found his dead body but when I saw it, suddenly I was filled with the greatest love energy I had ever experienced. I knew he had experienced that love when he left his body. He had done a lot of good charity work supporting his family and he over all was a honest man, despite the system being bad.
Then my mom got very sick in 2013 so I took her to the assistant of the qigong master, an African-American and part Native-American healer - Jim Nance - http://guidingqi.com - and he befriended me for a couple years. He showed me - he went into my soul - by leaving his body and I could feel this strong electromagnetic force on the right side of my heart. He had healed my mom while he talked to me on the phone and she was asleep! She had barely been able to walk but the next day she had so much energy that the day after she walked a half mile on her own! That was in 2013.
I kept doing more Taoist alchemy research and shamanic research and studying quantum biology - and I had read one scholarly book a day for over 10 years. I posted all my research online - along with my psychic healing experiences. http://voidisyinyang.blogspot.com is my website. I had worked 2 years for an organic fruit company and my coworkers spoke no English so I had to speak bad Spanish. We worked in a Chinese warehouse - so I realized that most Chinese think qigong training is not real. haha.
