Sarah Palin: Anti-American?


Lynette Clark was AIP secretary in the 90's and claims that during this time Todd and Sarah Palin were members of the Alaskan Independence Party or AIP. Clark, now the AIP chairman told ABC news of the Palin's membership and even said they attended the 1994 statewide convention in Wasilla.
The time in question is from 1994 - 2002 when both Todd and Sarah Palin were registered as members of the AIP. However, recently these documents seem to have vanished and people such as Clark are starting to say they must have been mistaken about the Palin's involvment with the seccionist group.
Since 1970, when the party first officially appeared on voting ballots in the state of Alaska, the AIP has been working to give Alaskans the right to vote on seceding from the Union, remaining a territory, or becoming a state. While many in the AIP are said to be of diverse opinions on which way to vote on the secession they all agree that Alaska should be placed above the importance of the Union. Clearly, there has to be a lot anti-American sentiment in a group like this which has been quoted as saying " Who needs America".

As for those of you who still have your doubts as to whether or not Sarah was a member take a look at this clip from you tube, before it gets removed, which shows Palin welcoming in the 2008 AIP convention.

Is Time Travel Finnally A Reality?

Did you ever wish you could right an old wrong, witness history, or maybe just spend a little more time with someone you love that passed away? At the age of 10 Ronald Mallet had lost his father and desperately wished he could travel through time to warn his father about his untimely death. As a student he studied physics and read science fiction novels to keep the fires in his imagination stoked and burning.
Eight years ago on May 8th, 2000 Dr. Ronald Mallet published his first paper on time travel titled, Weak gravitational field of the electromagnetic radiation in a ring laser in the El Sevier physics letters A.
In it Dr. Mallet calculates the gravitational field generated by a ring laser and shows that this field creates a time traveling effect on a test particle within the ring laser. This effect is called inertial-frame dragging and is due to a rotational object altering space-time and dragging a nearby object out of its normal time. Also known as the Lense-Thirring effect frame dragging is generally very small and around the order of trillionths of a second for a satellite in orbit around the Earth.
However, Dr. Mallet has found that by using a ring laser he could exaggerate this effect and create a time machine!
The way the machine works is by generating a rotating ring of laser light one can generate a strong gravitational field that bends space-time. This bending warps time from a straight line into a loop, allowing for time travel. The ring laser is generated by using 1 silvered mirror and 3 normal mirrors arranged in a square. In the image provided the silvered mirror is a position A. The light continues on towards points B,C and D and is reflected again at point A. By using many lasers and many more mirrors one can generate a cylindrical "hallway" which a test particle at point P can travel through. The space within the ring will begin to rotate and thus will frame-drag the particle along with it. Dr. Mallet often compares this with a cup of coffee a coffee bean and a spoon. If you have a coffee bean floating on the coffee and you stir with it with a spoon the coffee will begin to rotate. The coffee bean will be dragged along with it.
So, how does rotating light and space affect time, you might ask? Einstein's theory of General Relativity tells us that matter tells space how to bend and space tells Matter how to move. GR also tells us that E = mc^2. What this means is that Energy and mass are tied together. Putting these two statements one can see that Energy can also tell space how to bend. GR also tells us that space and time are not separate entities but rather are woven together - like a fabric. The fabric of space-time means that warp space one also warps time - this was the genius of Dr. Mallet!

Spike Lee is currently co-writing and directing a movie about Dr. Mallet entitled Time Traveler due out . Dr Mallet also has a book out titled Time Traveler - One man's mission to make time travel a reality. The book is out now in stores. As of yet no word on when the movie will begin filming or when to expect a release date.

UFO's caught on Web Cam; Popocat├ępetl:

During the Winter Solstice of the new millenium (Dec. 21st 2000) this picture was the main headline of the newspapers Milenio and Extramex. Popocatepetl is the Volcano seen here erupting. The image was taken by Alfonso Reyes on Tuesday the 19th 2001 at 6:10 AM while reporting on the eruption. The image was taken with a 20 second exposure time and a 24 mm angular lens according to Reyes. The actual image was not visible in real-time but only became visible after developing the film. The air space had been cleared due to the eruption of Mt. Popocatepetl ( which is Aztec for smoking mountain). Clearly this was not a meteorite as the trajectory seen is not ballistic ( parabolic or falling naturally). Also, due to the clearing of the airspace the object is unidentified and clearly has intelligent control. Mt. Popocatepetl is located near, and towers above, Mexico city. It is also North America's second highest volcano.





View Larger Map

Some quick stats on Popocatepetl from the USGS:
Popocatepetl Volcano
Location: Mexico
Latitude: 19.023 N
Longitude: 98.622 W
Height: 5,465 Meters
Type: Stratovolcano


This was not the first or last time a UFO had been seen around the volcano. In fact UFO's seem to frequent the mountain quite often, as can be seen in this youtube post of a webcam run by CENAPRED.
CENAPRED is a group from UNAM, a Mexican research university known for its quality research. UNAM is also where Dr. Miguel Alcubierri wrote his famous paper on the Warp Drive metric within General Relaitivy; showing that warp drive is possible with Einsteins equations.

According to CENAPRED Mt. Popocatepetl is currently sending plumes of ash and as a result the area has heightened its level of security to match. It might be possible that another eyecatching photograph could be taken.
The original report on the alert level can be found here:

A report in English can be found here:
http://www.cenapred.unam.mx/cgi-bin/popo/reportes/ultrepi2.cgi

This area is not near the zone of silence (zone de silencio),however, it is aligned with it. Currently, I have no clear link to bridge the two together.

The Color of Aquamarine - "Tesla Prodigy" Otis Carr and his OTC-X1:

While UFO hunters was airing this year they interviewed one Ralph Ring. Ralph has an amazing story regarding Otis T. Carr's OTC-X1: A 45 foot, saucer shaped, craft built and housed in the state of Oklahoma. Upon promulgation of this craft General Motors threatened to have it shot down if it ever got off the ground. Carr claims he was taught secret principles by Tesla himself as a young man. Carr later went on to apply the knowledge he had been taught by Tesla in his OTC-X1.
The man in the video is not Otis Carr but did work on the OTC-X1 with Carr. He is a very gifted and intelligent individual by the name of Ralph Ring and is in my opinion a credible and reliable witness. In the clip Ralph goes on to describe how the craft "traversed a distance" ( as Carr would say) of 10 miles in an instant. The fundamental principle driving this craft is that of resonance. By vibrating at the resonant frequency of the destination the craft will take on the frequency and traverse (not fly) the distance to that point.
Carr himself claimed that a contraption named the Utron acted as the engine. It has been said that the Utron is similar to the Searl effect generator. In the video you can see a couple of Utrons actually working!

UFO Sightings 2007

This video is a group of recent sightings seen last year. The final clips were filmed by Terrell Copeland. The maker of the film claims that UFO hunters on the History channel were given this footage and analyzed it poorly. I believe it is important to show this footage and let people come to their own conclusions, and if possible have this properly analyzed.
The footage covers a boomerang shaped craft seen over Hong Kong in October of last year. The coverage shows, several days later, a Romanian MIG that collided with a UFO. Later the video goes on to show Terrell's video with a Jet observing a boomerang shaped craft over Suffolk, VA.
This sighting is significant due a heavy military presence in Suffolk and the fact that these craft tend to follow Terrell.

50 ft Mechanical Spide - La Princess

Ok - so, this post is a little different from my other posts. On Sept. 6th at Liverpool, UK the French engineering group La Machine debuted their gigantic water spewing mechanical spider! This has got to be one of the coolest things I've heard of in the Engineering world as of late. So, I've posted a short clip of the mechanical beast. Does this remind anyone else of that Will Smith movie? If engineering projects interest you check out http://polymathengineering.blogspot.com. In the July archive there is a project about a Tesla Turbine.

American Stone Henge

90 miles (145 kilometers) east of Atlanta, and 9 miles (15 kilometers) north of the center of Elberton one will find The Elbert Stones. A monument situated a short distance to the east of Georgia Highway 77. Small signs beside the highway indicate the turnoff for the Guidestones, which is identified by a street sign as "Guidestones Rd."
What is often times referred to as the American Stone Henge is actually a rock monument in Elbert county, Georgia. The following excerpt is taken from wikipedia, "A message comprising ten guides is inscribed on the structure in eight modern languages, and a shorter message is inscribed at the top of the structure in four ancient scripts: Babylonian, Classical Greek, Sanskrit, and Egyptian hieroglyphs.

The artifact is almost twenty feet (6m) tall, and made from six granite slabs weighing more than 100 tons in all. One slab stands in the center, with four arranged around it. A capstone lies on top of the five slabs, which are astronomically aligned. An additional stone tablet, which is set in the ground a short distance to the west of the structure, provides some clarifying notes on the history and purpose of the Guidestones".

The stones were paid for by an unknown organization. The first message is a decree mandating that the Earth's population be brought down to 500 million. Seeing as there are 7 billion of us on the planet this means making 6.5 billion people disappear. There are only around 326 million Americans - this implies something very dark and sinister.

There are 10 decree's in total. These are:

Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.

Guide reproduction wisely improving fitness and diversity.

Unite humanity with a living new language.

Rule passion, faith, tradition, and all things with tempered reason.

Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.

Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.

Avoid petty laws and useless officials.Balance personal rights with social duties.

Prize truth, beauty, love, seeking harmony with the infinite.

Be not a cancer on the earth. Leave room for nature. Leave room for nature.

The monument itself is astronomically aligned. Quoting directly from the site Crytal links," The stones are placed so that a slit at eye level in the central upright slab permits an observer to view the eastern horizon and aligns with the position of the rising sun at the Summer and Winter Solstices. Through the center stone, from south to north, a two-inch diameter hole is inclined at an angle of 34 degrees and points to the North celestial pole. A beam of sunlight passing through a hole in the capstone forms a spot of light below. The position of the spot can be used to determine high noon and the day of the year."

A few feet away from the monument there lies another stone in the ground. This slab gives an explanation of the monument and its alignments.

If you read further you will find that another goal is to unite the world in a single language, and a single government.
Whoever commissioned this was a dreamer with a big budget. By doing away with the language of a single country one would drastically devastate a culture. This would imply massive wars to achieve such an end - but I guess that's not a problem when you want to cut down the population.

In truth - the Earth is over 2 fold the human population. The reason we aren't starving is because of the advances in farming and agricultural sciences. These provide more food than the Earth could naturally produce. There are better ways of dealing with over population than warfare. Overpopulation is solved by colonization of another planet. In our case we can begin to populate the Moon and Mars. In doing so the quality of life of people everywhere will improve due to the advances in technology such a lofty goal will require. In doing so we keep the population rates up and they can continue to grow. There are many moons that we can populate in our own back yard. Let's keep that in mind before we annhilate each other.

Is it possible to Identity the first UFO sighting?


The photo on the right is a well known image of Kenneth Arnold. A trained observer as a pilot, while flying his private plane near Mt. Rainer, Washington he observed a squadron of 9Unidentified flying objects on the 24th of June 1947, only a couple of months before the Roswell incident. He described them as "saucers skipping across a lake"; hence the term flying saucer. Notice the similarity of the craft Arnold saw to the craft on the left. That is a Nazi design by the Horton Brothers - the Horton Ho 229. The following is an excerpt taken from www.greyfalcon.us/The%20Horten%20Ho%20229.htm, "[Interestingly, the Horten brothers were helped in their bid for German government support when Northrop patents for the N-1M appeared in US Patent Office's "Official Gazette" on May 13, 1941, and then in the International Aeronautical journal "Interavia" on November 18, 1941.]".
Following this Horton - Northrop connection it is interesting to come across the flying wing designs that Northrop was testing during the late 40's; particularly during 1947 and 1948. It is possible that what Kenneth Arnold saw that on the summer day was a test flight of these Northrop designs. This is not to imply that Northrop had a more sinister role in the war. Much to the contrary Northrop produced amazing aircraft that helped defeat the Germans. This could simply be considered as spoils of war; using this technology to turn the tide of the cold war and future warfare. At this point all of this is speculation - but it is a plausible explanation. This explanation would also be a testament to Arnold's reliability as a trained observer. I'd like to hear thoughts on this from everyone out there - so please feel free to comment on this.

Rendlesham Forest and The Utsuro Bune

A well recorded and little known event in the Western world would be the events of the Utsuro Bune. This is a myth dating from circa 1800 Japan. It states that a USO ( unidentified submerged object) washed up on the shore. The inhabitants of the village witnessed the object on the shore stating that is was spherical with strange writing on it. Out of the capsule came a woman dressed in fine clothing. She spoke a different language and was not able to communicate with the locals.
The Rendlesham forest story involves an American Air Force base in England. As I understand the story a UFO began shining a light beam ( as if to scan for something) across several portions of the base. The executive officer at the time a Lt. Colonel Halt led a team into the woods to chase after the craft. Apparently one of them got close enough to record symbols on the craft.
Image from the Utsuro Bune scroll
Writing seen on UFO at Rendelsham Forest
Here I would like to show the similarities between these two writings, despite the time difference of 200 years.It seems rather odd that there would be any similarties between these two. However, it can be seen that the commonality is the triangle with 2 circles. The differences being that the midpoints of the circles are lined up with the midpoints of the triangles in the Utsuro bune while in the Rendlesham the triangle is inscribed within a circle. The midpoints of the two circles seem to be in line with the centroid of the triangle.
I merely wish to present this curiosity and I have no intention of offering an explanation for it. Perhaps in the future there will be a greater connection.

Ancient Egyptian Binary Multiplication

I will be showing the method used by the Ancient Egyptians as seen in the Text - " A History of Mathematics" by Jeff Suzuki. This is an excellent text and should be read by those with a great interest or love of mathematics and or history.
To do this multiplication we can use Suzuki's Pseudo-Hieratic notation. This involves writing a number such as 23 as 20,3. Another example would be writing 156 as 100,50,6.
So I will use the example Suzuki gives in the text. Namely, that of multiplying 13 by 27 or in Pseudo-Hieratic as 10,3 by 20,7. This may be considered a form of binary arithmetic because of the doubling. This method is also known as the Method of doubling and halving.
I will first show a step and then explain what is happening.


Step 1.

Col. 1 Col. 2
1 20,7

2 50,4

4 100, 8

8 200, 10, 6

Pick one of the numbers in this case 20,7 (27). Now, write a separate 1 term in a column to the left. Now double the row.That makes 1 go to 2 and 20,7 go to 50,4 (27*2 = 54).Doubling again makes turns the 2 into a 4 and 50,4 into 100,8 (54*2=108). Doubling once more 4*2 = 8 and108*2 = 216.The doubling does not go on forever of course. We do this until with some combination of the factors present in column 1 can make up the other original multiplying term. In this case 1,4, and 8 make up 10,3 (i.e 1+4+8 = 13).

Step 2.
Col. 1 Col. 2
\1 20,7
2 50,4
\4 100,8
\8 200,10,6

In step 2 we simply highlight the rows where the single digits in column 1 add up to 13. So Row's 1,3 and 4 have single digits 1,4,and 8 which sum to 10,3 (i.e 13).

Step 3.

20,7 + 100,8 + 200,10,6 = 300,50,1. ( 27 + 108 + 216 = 351).

Now, in step 3 we are looking at the rows of interest pointed out in Step 2. From there we add the terms in Column 2.
