UCY.TV ‘S LISTEN LIVE LINK:
Welcome to On the Brink Radio 2018. I’m starting out the new year with a re-broadcast of OTB #5 because it represents a dominant theme in my work and for this coming year.
Once again it’s Saturday night and I haven’t had the time to put into this post that I would like to have. What I will do, however, is to share excerpts from comprehensive article from 2012.
First allow me to share three shocking developments that have come onto my radar this last week that will have devastating effects for life in Mother Ocean if they proceed. Neither of these are anything new, are already going on, and represent only the latest examples in their category of MAMIAW (Marine Anthropogenic Military-Industrial ActivityWarfare); the global reality as revealed by HoMoMIMIC (HolisticModeling of Marine Impacts from Military-Industrial Civilization), however, represented by these threats…off-shore/deep-sea bed drilling, hydro-carbon exploration (seismic and EMR technologies) and marine toxicity due to pesticide run-off…is vast and horrific when you estimate their total summations.
CHIKYU, JAPANESE DEEP SEA-BED DRILLING PLATFORM
1) DRILLING INTO THE EARTH’S MANTLE
“Japan’s Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology’s (JAMSTEC) largest drilling ship called “Chikyu”…and a group of international researchers plan to use it to drill into the Earth’s mantle for the first time.
The JAMSTEC-led team will conduct a two-week preliminary study in the waters off Hawaii this September to determine if that’s where their Chikyu should drill. If the location doesn’t work, they’ll look at their other choices in the waters off Costa Rica and off Mexico. All three are in the ocean, because the continental crust is twice as thick as the oceanic crust.
Chikyu’s drill will have to go through 2.5 miles of water and 3.7 miles of crust to be able to reach the mantle, which makes up roughly 84 percent of our planet’s volume. It’s a silicate rocky shell that flows slowly and affects volcanic activity, as well as the motion of tectonic plates that causes earthquakes.”
2) EASTERN AND WESTERN SEABOARD OF USA OPENED TO HYDRO-CARBON EXPLORATION
“U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke today announced the next step for responsibly developing the National Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Program (National OCS Program) for 2019-2024,which proposes to make over 90 percent of the total OCS acreage and more than 98 percent of undiscovered, technically recoverable oil and gas resources in federal offshore areas available to consider for future exploration and development. By comparison, the current program puts 94 percent of the OCS off limits. In addition, the program proposes the largest number of lease sales in U.S. history.”
3) RAKITU ISLAND NEW ZEALAND TO BE CARPET-BOMBED WITH BRODIFACOUM
Rakitu, or Arid Island, is only 3 kms from Harataonga Beach on Aotea, or Great Barrier Island, and therefore very near and dear to me. I haven’t been to her yet but have seen her many times and on my most recent visit I was scoping out the best way to kayak over. Just two weeks ago I was shocked to learn that DOC wants to deploy goddess-knows how many hundreds of kilograms of the extremely deadly pesticide brodifacoum all over the island, supposedly to get rid of rats. Much of the island consists of slopes of over 40 degrees; consequently a great % of the pesticide will drain directly into the ocean.
Like its sister killer 1080 (of which 90% of all that is manufactured in the world annually is used throughout New Zealand’s biosphere),brodifacoum is a halogen-based pesticide, having a central atom of bromine (as opposed to 1080’s fluorine). Regardless of how these substances ‘break down’ once they have been metabolized, excreted and/or recirculated via the decomposition of dead organisms, no compound can ‘break down’ into anything simpler than its constituent elements: for every kilogram of 1080 deployed, 245 grams of fluorine enter the biosphere, and for every kilogram of brodifacoum deployed, 153 grams of bromine enter the biosphere. Halogens are the most reactive of all the elements and are therefore highly toxic and destructive to living organisms. Of all the halogens, bromine alone has no known function in healthy biological systems.

RAT POISON DISCOVERED IN DEAD PENGUINS
INVESTIGATION OPENED INTO DEATH OF FISH, BIRDS AFTER RAT POISON DROPPED ON LEHUA ISLAND (HAWAI’I)
DID THE LEHUA RAT POISON DROP CONTRIBUTE TO THE DEATHS OF FIVE PILOT WHALES IN HAWAI’I?
CETACEAN RAINBOW CONVERGENCE, Jeff Phillips (2009)
‘WE ARE NOT ALONE…YET’:
HOW WE ARE WAGING WAR ON A TRUE ‘EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL INTELLIGENCE’ by JEFF PHILLIPS
“Modern man believes that he is ‘alone’ in the universe, yet nothing could be further from the truth. The mind-set of ‘civilized’ western humanity takes for granted that our collective world-view, the human perspective on life on Earth, represents the pinnacle of awareness, the paragon of ‘intelligence’, that we are sine pari, “without equal” in the kingdoms of life, above and apart from mere ‘animals’ and other ‘lower’ life-forms. This unquestioned anthropocentric ‘meta-belief’, the central pillar supporting the dominant dMOE (1), or ‘distributed mental operating environment’ which facilitates our fundamentally Judaeo-Christian neo-Darwinian military-industrial-capitalist ‘way of life’, justifies ecocide, rationalizes genocide, glorifies predation, rewards greed, derides simplicity, denies indigenous and alternative modes of being, and is conducting a full-spectrum jihad against life itself.”
WE ARE THE PROBLEM
As a whole we are insane with respect to the ‘reality’ of global indigenous wisdom, ways of living and being in harmony with life and the Earth that have been around FAR longer than our highly destructive ‘industrial civilization’ which is turning the whole planet into a barren wasteland in the blink of a cosmic eye.
It’s possible that we are not our ‘real selves’ at this point in time. I really hope this isn’t the ‘real’ us. If there is a ‘real’ us, I hope that it’s much more like the cetaceans than what is generally passing for ‘humanity’ today. Whatever the reasons…the ‘Kali yuga’ (75) or ‘permanent psychic mutation’…we have to realize that humans are the problem and humans can stop being the problem. Whatever the ‘causes’…we are still responsible for what we, our entire species, is doing.
No ‘them’ exists who is responsible for what is happening; in terms of what’s happening with the cetaceans, it’s easy to point the finger at the Japanese, or at ‘big oil’ companies, or the U.S. Navy. These organizations consist of human beings, ‘people’; ultimately, however, the problem is US. We in western society each make our daily contribution to our ‘unconscious jihadagainst nature’. We each consume at least our share of resources, use our share of energy, produce our share of waste. Every time we pay a tax or even use money, we are supporting the military-industrial-banking complex; every time we get in our SUV’s and burn some petroleum, we are supporting the VERY INSTITUTIONS who are the greatest threats to cetaceans. Driving more than any other ‘consumer behaviour’ truly supports the ‘fascism-sponsored geo-terrorism’ being conducted against the whales and dolphins.Cetaceans don’t use money or have possessions, they don’t have territory, houses, clothes, or electricity; they don’t need cars, radios, lights or books; theirs is a true spiritual non-material culture based on ‘internal technology’, supreme adaptation to their environment, constant mutual support, and tightly-knit social networks. We, on ‘both hands’, are trapped in ‘language’, often confusing the map with the territory; we are embedded in an increasingly artificial reality, a ‘technosphere’ that is toxic and unalive; we worship our self-proclaimed ‘intelligence’ and pronounce our ‘dominion’ over the kingdoms of life. We have little or no understanding of our own psychological processes, the nature of our ‘dMOE’. We are ignorant of our own abilities and responsibilities.
All the problems that the Earth is experiencing, including the war on cetaceans, is a function of unenlightened human activity. The real limitations or barriers to communicating with or understanding the cetaceans as fellow sentient beings lie on the human side of the equation. We can’t possibly understand ‘anyone else’ until we understand ourselves…we can’t possibly ‘ascend’ into a ‘higher dimension’ while we’re trashing this one.
My belief is that the cetaceans as a whole understand what is going on and are doing their best to be nice to us under extremely adverse circumstances, while we are waging war on them. They are encountering us with‘satyagraha’ and the Golden Rule. (76) They are maintaining the highest possible spiritual wave-lengths in the face of mass-genocide.
WHO THEY REALLY ARE: THEIR MESSAGE…OUR LESSON
So far we’ve explored ‘who’ the cetaceans are from the perspective of mainstream science and popular culture, but we haven’t really gone ‘into their mind.’ Maybe we haven’t really been invited yet? We know that they are a lot like us, yet very different from us; we know that they must have a highly sophisticated ‘internal reality’ but we can’t access it due to our lack of communication. We know that they matter just as much as do we.
Respect for cetaceans as fellow beings…true respect, not ‘theoretical’ or ‘rhetorical’ respect…as with anyone, is a necessary prerequisite for communication, but not only are we showing little ‘respect’ for them, we are waging war on them. IF they could suddenly ‘speak’ to us in English we might not like what we heard: “HEY! What’s up with all the noise and killing? Why don’t you all become vegetarians and learn to meditate and play flute?”
Our anthropocentric forms of communication, particularly the ‘double-edged sword’ of symbolic language, may have served us all too well in our games of ‘progress’, but to all other life-forms onMothership Earth, our constant blatherings and transmissions must be little more than an irritating noise, lacking the melody and harmony of bird- or whale-song or the intricate beauty of cricket chirps; this is how most human use of language sounds to me! Our actions speak far louder than our words when it comes to how ‘mitakuyse oyasin’ perceives human beings. In the larger reality, the context of life on Earth, humanity is both obsessed with its own artificial reality and doing its best to make natural life a thing of the past. “Western man’s ethic is not directed toward the preservation of the earth that fathered him.”(77)
Although we can only ‘know’ the cetaceans through the lenses and filters of our own dysfunctional ‘dMOE’, our own psychology, another mode or channel of non-sensory ‘communication’ seems to exist, that of telepathy. We don’t really know what it is or how it works, but it is definitely a real phenomenon. A large number of people who have spent time with cetaceans and know them well remark on how telepathicthey seem to be. The exact nature of the experience is elusive, but when it’s happening you know it’s real. (78)
I think that the cetaceans are using their highly advanced ‘internal technologies’ of group-telepathy and holographic consciousness-transmission to beam their love and message into the human psyche, now more than ever. Since they’ve been here at least ten times longer than we have, this could be a long-standing connection that humans-in-their-present-state have forgotten. This could also be a survival imperative on their part.
The exciting part is that telepathic thought transfer may be only the tip of a huge ice-berg of advanced mental abilities the cetaceans have, ones that we, too, had but in general have atrophied from lack of use and/or been drowned out by the info-toxic and electromagnetic cacophony of ‘civilized’ life. (79)
Being able to experience their ‘reality’ could be humbling as well as mind-blowing to ‘man, the wise.’ Some of us are able to connect with them telepathically and spiritually, a sphere of connection that’s existed since before us, but as a whole, we live in a vacuum of inter-species understanding. In general, we seem to be content with our commonly-held misconceptions. When we consider ‘communication’, we tend to think in terms of ‘translating their “language”’ or ‘decoding their transmissions’ but in reality their primary ‘message’ to us may be far less complex than sophisticated multi-dimensional stereo-holographic ‘pictures’ or sequences of clicks and whistles. (80)
Without making a sound or beaming us telepathically, the most fundamental message the cetaceans have for us is shared purely by the example they set: “live simply so that others may simply live.”For now the inner life of cetaceans remains a complete mystery. Living in the ocean before human industrial civilization, they would have enjoyed the immense peace and tranquility of a non-electric environment, mingled with the music of their various sounds, playing, living in close-knit family groups, in constant motion, traveling oceanic ‘song-lines’ and tuning into what was happening with Mother Earth and the universe. For all we know, cetaceans in general might be the equivalent of human yogis, spiritual masters, artists, musicians, dancers, martial arts experts, philosophers and poets…or beyond. They might have a highly-evolved ‘group mind’, a ‘group-synaesthesia’ akin to a real-time shared psychic multi-dimensional ‘broad-band internet’. They might have their own equivalents of our astronomy, and be in touch with life in other star-systems. And certainly they don’t bear the psychic scars of having mass-murdered each other for thousands of years.
In the oceans of today they are under such violent attack that their ‘normal’ lives would seem almost impossible to maintain. How they are able to live under these circumstances and still be nice to us is even more of a mystery than ‘who’ they really are.
The most powerful encounter I have had with cetaceans was two years ago when my partner Liesbet and I were swimming in the ocean off of Great Barrier Island, New Zealand. We were in waist-deep water frolicking around when all of a sudden three dolphins appeared. We were thrilled as they came to within about a meter of us. They seemed to be ‘beaming’ us with some kind of ‘energy’ that we could definitely feel; they went away then returned and did the same thing again. After a while they left, but Liesbet and I were forever changed by this ‘close encounter’ with a true ‘extra-terrestrial intelligence.’ We came away with a feeling not only of being ‘healed’ or having our health ‘boosted’ in unknown ways, but, more significantly, we felt that the dolphins imparted an immense sense of urgency to us. A warning, perhaps, of something dangerous looming on the horizon. This impression never left us, and when the Christchurch quakes and Fukushima nuclear disaster happened a few months later, it all began to make sense: they knew what was coming…because they’ve seen it happen before?
Within their collective psyche they may have memories and knowledge of the history of Earth and humanity that we are unable and/or unwilling to access. They may have knowledge of life elsewhere in the universe…of telepathically-connected galactic communities…and a greater appreciation of the beauty and uniqueness of life on THIS planet. Perhaps they are the ‘mind of Gaia’ herself. (81)
If we are somehow able to stop waging war on the ‘ultimate indigenous people’, and find ways to listen to and act on their ‘message’ to us, then the door could open for an inter-species ‘psychic symbiosis’ that might have existed before but could certainly happen again. If and when this happens, everything we think of as ‘reality’ could change dramatically; it might be like waking up after an extended night-mare.
PASSENGERS/CREW OF MOTHERSHIP EARTH
Humans and cetaceans, along with every other form of life, are the passengers and crew of Mothership Earth. She is the only planet we know of who has life. The gravity of the current scenario that is playing out on Earth is truly incomprehensible to the mind of homo sapiens: how can we get our heads around the fact that it is WE who are doing our best to destroy all life on the only planet we know of who has life?
We cannot be sure what the cetaceans ‘think’ about this, but I believe that we are receiving a vast amount of truly spiritual love and vast psychic guidance from our fellow ‘co-conspirators’ in the web of life.(82) They might have far greater understanding of and insight into what is ‘really’ going on with humanity and the Earth; with a consciously and creatively re-programmed dMOE humans as a whole could not only come to share this expanded world-view, but would of necessity re-navigate our overall process away from oblivion and towards the honouring, respect and nurturing of all life. This is the work we must dedicate ourselves to.
The cetaceans have been here all along, waiting for us to wake up and snap out of our brutal night-mare that’s been going on for thousands of years.
How do we ‘save the whales’? By being aware of how each of us contributes to the war on life that ‘civilization’ is fundamentally based on, and acting to modify these unquestioned behaviours. A radical reduction in driving, in consuming hydro-carbon fuels would be a great move, as well as radical reduction or complete elimination of meat in our diets. Awareness is the key, owning it and keeping it in the forefront of our minds and hearts. If we really care about life and change our lives in ways that show it, we will begin to reduce the extremely negative collective karma we have accrued, a spiritual force that is driving our self-destruction.
If we live by the example of the cetaceans: satyagraha, the Golden Rule, ‘friendship for no advantage’, ‘live simply so that others may simply live’…if we make these real in our day-to-day lives, there’s no need to donate money to non-profit organizations.
If we realize that each of us has enormous abilities and talents, a vast inner life, we may find the inspiration to become more cetacean-like ourselves, and therefore find our true selves, our true nature as ‘people’, as human beings.
I will close with what could be the ultimate ‘science-fiction’ scenario…because it looks like it’s really happening. Dr. John C. Lilly, with whose dolphin communication group I was involved in the early 1980’s, speculated that the whales and dolphins acted as ‘repeater stations’ for signals from water-based life-forms or ‘Gaian intelligences’ in other star systems, and that this was one of their primary functions here, to maintain this ancient and essential connection. I personally have felt a powerful link between the whales and dolphins, what I refer to as the ‘spirit of life’, and the art and consciousness of the Australian aborigines, who are THE oldest human culture with the most long-standing relationship to Mother Earth. (83)
Lilly’s perception or vision was thathumanity was being influenced below our level of awareness by energies or transmissions from another form of ‘intelligence’ in other star-systems, a solid-state ‘life’ based not on water, carbon and DNA, but on silicon and electricity. ThisSSE, or ‘solid state entity’ has been influencing humanity to design and construct an entire ‘civilization’ running on electricity and computers whose ultimate purpose is first to replace then to eliminate entirely water-based life-as-we-currently-know-her, including ourselves. The cetaceans are specifically targeted as being the most powerful receivers of the ‘signals’ from water-based life. (84)
When I look around at what is happening in the world today, the extreme proliferation of all-things-electronic, the dangers of EMR, micro-waves, and the ‘new generation of Tesla-based weapons technologies, the mutagenicity of electricity and the centrality of computers for the existence of the entire planetary mega-machine and war apparatus, it really looks like this is coming true. The SSE still needs us…but for how long?
Is THIS world we are creating a world that we REALLY want? Time is short. Time to wake up.
