What If: Will the United States Become Less Centralized? . by Alice B. Clagett *

Written and published on 6 December 2019
Prior title: What If the United States Became Less Federal and More Regional in Government? 

Dear Ones,

ECONOMIC STRESSORS THAT MAY LEAD TO DECENTRALIZATION OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT          top

I have some thoughts on the state of the nation. Intuitively, I sense economic stressors that may gradually lead to our Federal government taking a lesser role in the governance of the United States, compared to regional alliances of states. I see the Federal government continuing to provide military defense, social security payments, and leadership in foreign affairs. I also see states taking more initiative in economics for their regions.

As to trade, I see future reliance on established railroad routes and water routes such as the Mississippi river. I anticipate that, should there be a gradual lessening of Federal power, then there might be more trade within an economic region, and less trade globally and nationally.

As to finance, I see potential reliance on barter, with care no to place our financial assets in overseas locations. Local-employment based credit unions may come into favor as regional savings repositories.

There may be more reliance on those economic sectors that hold strong during recessions … such as locally grown food, locally obtainable building materials, and water supplies not piped in over long distances.

As to economic stressors, I suggest the overarching stressor of the COVID-19 pandemic, the economic impact of the HIV pandemic, and stress of regional aridity due to long-distance water transport costs,

A socially disruptive stressor is handheld psychosis, which may lead to chaotic events such as mass murders and actions by public utilities and military regarding perceived dangers that do not truly exist. This might precipitate social unrest in regions of the United States pinpointed by the Jade Helm exercises.

CAVEATS REGARDING POSSIBLE LOCI OF SOCIAL UNREST          top

In United States cities, the high cost of housing and the increasing phenomenon of homelessness may lead to social unrest and attempted land grabs through anarchist behavior; this is something for which, I feel, every large city mayor and every state government ought to have on hand emergency action plans. For states in arid regions, emergency anti-anarchist plans ought, I feel, to highlight security of water transport systems. Electrical grids, I feel, might also be an anarchist target.

We people in large United States cities can be of big help in creating peaceful environments for our children by offering our law enforcement departments volunteer help through neighborhood watch programs.

ON MAINTAINING A POSITIVE ATTITUDE IN THE FACE OF CHANGE          top

It seems unlikely to me that anything would happen in a moment; rather I feel that the United States might very slowly tend towards a model of government more akin to the state by state model of our early years as a nation. We may find, in future, that traveling from one state to the next is a refreshingly new experience. Not everyone may be watching the same thing on television every night anymore; there may be less airline flights from here to there; and so the natural flavor and local color of each region of the United States may become more striking to the casual tourist.

In addition, it may be that some regions of the United States may be more perilous for tourist travel, as was the case for travelers in the early years of our nation.

I realize the prospect of change can be unsettling. It is good to keep in mind that changes such as those spoken of above … if, indeed, change there be … would in all likelihood take place by slow stages, over the course of the next century or two. Thus I feel certain there would be plenty of time to make our plans and find our footing in the new.

POSSIBLE FUTURE UNITED STATES ECONOMIC REGIONS AND TRADE REGIONS          top

Below are some maps I have adapted to show possible United States economic regions and trade regions of centuries to come. I would be interested on your comments regarding this intriguing topic of the eventual possibility that the United States government might become less centralized, and more imbued with local flavor and with the strong spirit of our local communities.

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

I have a topic to discuss that I have been putting off … Please excuse me. It has to do with the likelihood of a Carrington effect, and the short-term consequences resulting from that, due to the fact that, here in the United States, we are very technologically oriented and electronics oriented.

As you may know, in 2012 Pete Riley of Predictive Science, San Diego, CA, calculated the probability of a Carrington event in the next 10 years at approximately 12%; here is the paper …

Link: “On the probability of occurrence of extreme space weather events,” by Pete Riley, in “Space Weather,” received 16 September 2011; revised 18 November 2011; accepted 22 December 2011; published 23 February 2012;  Vol. 10, S02012, doi:10.1029/2011SW000734 … https://agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1029/2011SW000734 … 2012 … http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1029/2011SW000734/pdf ..

Carrington Effect and Transportation Worldwide

I would like to put forth the notion that a Carrington Effect, in addition to the damage that it might do to the power grids … making gasoline unavailable here in the United States, and elsewhere in the world, for weeks, months, or possibly, years … might also instantaneously halt transportation here in the United States, and elsewhere in the world, because of the electronics in the engines and in the systems of cars now.

My question is: Would a Carrington effect most likely destroy sensitive electrical and electronic mechanisms in cars … such as ignition coils, generators, mechanical distributors, and starting motors … making it no longer possible for transportation to take place?

So this is a Call to Action regarding mitigation of that possibility. What can we do, to prepare ourselves for lack of transportation for, say, a week or two weeks, or maybe an extended length of time?

Effect on People Who Are Homebound and on Oxygen

For instance, with lack of transportation, one of the things that might happen is that people who are homebound and on oxygen are no longer able to obtain oxygen. They need to talk over this possibility with their healthcare providers, and try to keep on hand additional, emergency containers of oxygen.

I know this is possible because, for instance, in snowbound areas, as I recall, Medicare will provide those kinds of large containers, full of oxygen, in case the electricity goes down. I would like to suggest that all people who are on oxygen have those containers on hand, because of the likelihood of the Carrington Effect affecting transportation, and making it difficult or impossible for replacement oxygen canisters to be delivered to homes for some length of time.

Advantage of Owning an Older Car with Less Susceptible Electrical and Electronic Parts … and a Bicycle or Foot-Powered Scooter

If you are able, or have the money, or if you are thinking of trading to a new car, may I suggest the type of car that has no electronics in it … that very basic car? I think that is a good plan for the future.

Possibly even more helpful would be to have on hand a bicycle with a carrying basket on the front or back, or a foot-powered scooter on the handlebars of which shopping bags can be suspended.

Public Water Supply May Fail 

In addition, in terms of water supply, my understanding is that there is a powerhouse that pushes the water from the storage area to the various homes somehow. I do not know how this takes place, but if it is true, and if the power goes out because of the Carrington Effect, then we will have no water. For instance, in towns where water is gravity-fed from a water tower, it must be that electricity is needed to pump the water up into the tower. Without electricity, such a water supply system would fail, would it not? So, everyone has to look into alternatives of water supply, in the event of a Carrington Effect.

Thoughts on Storing and Cooking Food 

Of course, there is an issue of storing food, and of cooking the food. I suggest keeping on hand small cans of food that are already hydrated … that do not need extra water … and that have protein content in them. This is because, if the Carrington Effect takes place, there will be no refrigerators to keep the food in large containers refrigerated, and it will spoil. So, individual, or family-sized containers of canned food are the best bet … Say, beans in cans. Maybe instant rice, or oats that are ‘quick oats’ would be possibilities, if a fire source can be provided. All this I have written up in this blog …

Link: “Pioneer Skills: Planning for Tough Times Ahead,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 19 September 2017; revised … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-7H3 ..

… so you can look it up there as well. If we were suddenly reduced to pioneer circumstances, then you would want to have on hand, in your house, at least the least expensive ways of sustaining life until the power grids and transportation are restored.

What If Parents Are Stranded at Their Workplace, and Children at Their Schools, as a Result of a Midday Strike of the Carrington Effect? 

Also as a result of possible transportation take-down, if the strike of the Carrington Effect were to take place, say, midday, there would be an issue of how families might be reunited, so that they would be better capable of surviving, during the interval before power is restored.

How will parents get home, if their job takes them far from their home? How will children get home from school? Is there a plan in place, to help with that?

Suppose they cannot get home? Then, is there a plan for survival at the place where the parents work?

Do people who work far from home keep a comfortable, sturdy pair of walking shoes at work, in case they must walk home?

Is there a plan for survival at the school where the children are?

If part of the family arrives home … say, the children … and the parents cannot, then do the children know what to do, so as to protect themselves and sustain themselves, until the family is reunited?

Highrises May Be Rendered Uninhabitable. I note also, in this regard, that people who live or work in highrises, or in buildings with windows that will not open, might find these buildings unusable, after a Carrington Effect, for lack of ventilation and inoperability of HVAC. (Or, occupants might keep on hand tools for cutting holes in the windows, for ventilation.)

Shall We Establish Community Granaries? 

Here is something else: Could each community provide something along the lines of the Babylonian Granaries (grain storage facilities)? In Jewish times as well, the person in charge of a group of people would have a grain store, just in case of times of difficulty such as a Carrington Effect would cause.

Image: “A Wheat Receipt Issued by Two Officials of the Granary at Babylon (Old Cairo) – Egyptian National Library Inv. No. 126.87 AH / 706 CE” … https://www.islamic-awareness.org/history/islam/papyri/enlp10 ..

Would there be a place … say, a deserted supermarket … where supplies could be kept and doled out, in the way that rations were doled out during World War II?

This is something that each community could decide upon, and provide for on its own … Powdered milk for mothers with children, for instance. And maybe grain stores … cornmeal, flour, and the other things that I have suggested, such as rice and beans, could be on hand and could be given out, in the way that these supplies are given out in developing countries during catastrophic natural disasters.

On Planning to Repurpose Our Military Might to the Home Front in the Event of a Natural Disaster Such as a Carrington Event

We need to look to the home front right now, I feel.  It would be good to draw back our troops, in an organized way, as conflicts begin to cease, worldwide … considering, also the difficulty of getting our men and armaments home in the event of global power grid difficulties … and instead, develop a plan, on the home front, for caring for our communities during a crisis … maybe, extended times of crisis, the Carrington Effect being only one such.

That is my thought for today. I wish you all the very best.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

ARE CALIFORNIA HOUSING COSTS UNREALISTICALLY HIGH?

Apparently, California housing costs are the highest in America …

Link: “California’s High Housing Costs: Causes and Consequences,” from the Legislative Analyst’s Office, 17 March 2015 … http://www.lao.ca.gov/reports/2015/finance/housing-costs/housing-costs.aspx ..

This is odd, because people are less in need of housing in California than elsewhere in the nation, because of the mild climate here. Why are housing prices so high?

Could it be that the housing codes here unrealistic, considering the influx of homeless and migrant workers, (1) and the release of felons onto the community due to inadequate funds to keep them in prison? (2)

EFFECT OF LOS ANGELES WATER PRICES ON HOUSING AFFORDABILITY

Stopgap measures have been initiated to fund desperately needed Los Angeles programs, including skyrocketing water prices, and increases in property taxes for homeowners …

Link: “LA DWP, Other Utilities to Raise Water Rates Because of Drought,” by Mike Reicher, published 20 October 2015, updated … https://www.dailynews.com/2015/10/20/la-dwp-other-utilities-to-raise-water-rates-because-of-drought/ ..

Thus the price of owning a home … which is out of range for the many Californians … has become about twice as high in the last decade … There is the price of the mortgage, about equaled by the increased price of utilities and property taxes.

We cannot afford lawns any more. Many people are taking bucket showers rather than ‘real’ showers. In the streets, under the river overpasses and freeway bridges, on vacant lots and in the parks, the homeless cluster, disconsolate, often drunk on rotgut liquor, posting guards in turn to prevent violence upon their small groups, beyond any hope of shelter.

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA EMPLOYMENT OUTLOOK

I would like to take a look at the longer-term effect of the stopgap measures that have been effected, so as to keep the Los Angeles city government running …

Apparently, higher housing prices will attract less jobs to California. This means that people will be less able to afford the homes they have. Those who rent will find home ownership out of reach. And those without homes will be unable to rent …

Link: “Sky-high rents and home prices are making it hard for Southern California businesses to attract workers,” by Andrew Khouri, 22 February 2018 … http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-housing-costs-economy-20180222-story.html ..

WATER SUPPLY MAINTENANCE IN LOS ANGELES

Let’s look at water supply to Los Angeles …

Los Angeles is a desert town. Of itself, it is without means to provide water for its population. The water we have is imported from other places, and this may contribute to its cost.

In addition, there is the infrastructure that distributes water throughout Los Angeles. This, like the roads, is aging. Rather than providing a maintenance schedule, we are providing repairs when water mains break. My thought is, our city must not have the revenue for a preventive maintenance schedule for our water distribution system …

Link: “L.A.’s aging water pipes; a $1-billion dilemma,” by Ben Poston and Matt Steven, 16 February 2015 … http://graphics.latimes.com/la-aging-water-infrastructure/ ..

ROAD MAINTENANCE IN LOS ANGELES

How about road maintenance in Los Angeles? Here again, revenues are insufficient for a good road maintenance schedule …

Link: “Poorly maintained roads cost Southern California drivers $2,800 a year,” by Brenda Gazzar, Daily News, published on 17 August 2017; updated, in Los Angeles Daily News …  https://www.dailynews.com/2016/08/17/poorly-maintained-roads-cost-southern-california-drivers-2800-a-year/ ..

LAW ENFORCEMENT IN LOS ANGELES AND IN THE SANTA MONICA MOUNTAINS NATIONAL RECREATION AREA

How about law enforcement? In the cities, I feel, police response is quite good. However, there is the area of the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area (SMMNRA), which is currently essentially a lawless zone. According to Wikipedia, the SMMNRA comprises 156,671 acres (63,403 ha) …

Map: SMMNRA … http://rimofthevalleycoalition.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/Screen-Shot-2016-02-17-at-6.17.05-AM-1-800×445.jpg ..

I have checked, and there is one ranger assigned to this area. That is, effectively, the police patrol for the entire area.

Thus, lawlessness in the mountains is on the rise, especially in areas with natural water flow, and which are contiguous to populated areas. It reminds me a little of stories of the old days in Los Angeles, when cattle rustlers and horse thieves used to establish hidden outlaw strongholds in the mountains now termed the SMMNRA.

PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN LOS ANGELES

How about schools in Los Angeles? Our schools are becoming more and more a target for gun-wielding and drug dealing, making an education a risky business in Los Angeles.

SUMMARY REGARDING CITY OF LOS ANGELES PUBLIC SERVICES FUNDING

These four areas: utilities, roads, law enforcement, and education, are lacking revenues for maintenance. I feel these are the domain of government in our country … Where these are lacking, government is lacking. Here in Los Angeles, government is doing a slow tumble. It is unable to perform its basic functions.

I feel, though, that this is not the fault of government. Were revenues available here in Los Angeles, I feel certain government would be eager to do its job. But those revenues are unavailable. Why is this?

CALIFORNIA HOUSING: A TIME OF TRANSFORMATION

We here in Los Angeles are in a time of great import … a time of transformation to the New. This is not just the case here in Los Angeles. All of California, all American, and indeed, all the countries of Earth are in a time of transformation.

Transformation can feel like Apocalypse, or it can feel like a New Beginning. (3) We, the people of Los Angeles, will determine the outcome. Will we pull together and come up with innovative solutions to the housing crisis? Or will we go with the status quo … the slow tumble … the seemingly inevitable downward spiral?

I say, let us look, with a sense of adventure, a sense of the dawn of a new era for humankind, to innovative solutions. For instance …

Might Primitive Housing Techniques Be Useful?

How did the First Nations live, here in Southern California, in days not too long ago? They lived in reed, pole, palm frond, or bark huts, and they survived quite well this way …

Image: Diverse California Indian Dwellings …  http://www.rogueturtle.com/articles/images/nashelter1.jpg ..

How do people get by in Rio de Janeiro, where about a fourth of the population live below the poverty line, and the average per capita income is about $17,700 a year? Many live in very substandard housing, termed favelas ..

Image: Rio de Janeiro favela … https://media.istockphoto.com/photos/inside-a-favela-in-rio-de-janeiro-picture-id504416164 ..

How about in Tijuana, the country of origin of many of our current unhomed population? From what sort of environment are they fleeing, in order to seek a better life for themselves and their families?

Tijuana also has its slum housing, where people use building materials salvaged from landfills to build squatter homes on land with no utility service. Water trucks come round with bottles of water to sell for household use. Sanitation depends on a family’s ingenuity; pit toilets are the norm …

Image: House of cardboard in Tijuana … https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/family-inside-their-house-made-with-carboard-at-the-edge-of-news-photo/149207211#family-inside-their-house-made-with-carboard-at-the-edge-of-a-ravine-picture-id149207211 ..

On Revising the Los Angeles County Housing Code

I feel we here in Los Angeles can do better than this for our people. But we must face facts.

The density of population in Los Angeles is too great for sustainable living. The population of Earth must be spread out more evenly, and ways must be found to live off the land, and become self-sustaining, and to house ourselves, in and of ourselves, humbly but efficiently, using local materials. For those that have the skills and strength of character to move out of the cities, and live a sustainable life: Why not consider taking this step?

On Building Additional High Density Housing in Los Angeles

For those that choose to remain here in Los Angeles, we must come to terms with the fact that the housing code in Los Angeles makes it impossible to attract jobs to the area. Where jobs are insufficient, the standard of living will decline. The Catch 22 is this: Where the standard of living has declined, jobs will not be attracted.

So then, what is the solution? There is a clue near the end of this article …

Link: “California’s High Housing Costs: Causes and Consequences,” from the Legislative Analyst’s Office … http://www.lao.ca.gov/reports/2015/finance/housing-costs/housing-costs.aspx ..

The article suggests building more high density housing in California’s beach towns. I agree that this would help solve the problem. But in order to effect this solution, we must change the housing codes.

The Los Angeles Plan for Housing the Homeless Now Underway

Los Angeles has a plan for housing the homeless …

Link: “A plan to house L.A.’s homeless residents could transform parking lots across the city,” by Doug Smith, 9 February 2018 … http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-parking-lots-housing-20180209-story.html ..

This plan is a laudable step in the right direction. Yet it is running into snags because of local fractiousness. People do not want the homeless as their neighbors.

The $2 Billion Bond to Help House California’s Homeless Held Up by Lawsuit

I see also that a $2 billion bond to help house California’s homeless, approved by California voters two years ago, is tied up in lawsuits regarding mental health care bills as yet unpaid …

Link: “2 billion to help house California’s homeless isn’t being spent — and no one knows when it will be,” by Liam Dillon, 1 March 2018 … http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-pol-ca-homeless-housing-bond-stalled-20180301-story.html ..

The HUD Plan to Provide $2 Billion Nationwide for the Homeless

On the other hand, Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has announced a plan to provide $2 billion for the homeless, so this may to some degree ameliorate the homeless situation in California …

Link: “Ben Carson Announces $2 Billion for Homeless Programs Despite Trump’s Proposed Cuts to Housing Programs,” by Grace Guarnieri, 11 January 2018 … http://www.newsweek.com/ben-carson-billion-homeless-trump-housing-778976 ..

The Plan to House the Homeless in Guest Houses in Los Angeles County 

Los Angeles County is running a pilot program offering housing assistance for homeless housed in guest houses in property owners’ back yards …

Link: “L.A. County wants to help build guest houses in backyards — for homeless people,” by Gale Holland, 11 April 2018 … http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-homeless-tiny-house-20180411-story.html ..

If successful, this might help reduce the population density in the City of Los Angeles, and help relieve concomitant issues to do with the homeless population in the City.

Employment Opportunity for the Skilled Homeless: Building That Guest Home in Los Angeles County? I would like to suggest, as well, the building of ‘Tiny Homes’ to benefit from this program, if it turns out to be approved. Perhaps this would boost employment in Los Angeles Country? Perhaps the homeless who have handyman skills might help with building additional guest homes there? Could it be that the State of California might offer financial incentives for such projects?

An Additional Idea; High Density Housing in Los Angeles County, with Busing to Jobs

If local resistance proves impossible to overcome, let us consider building high density housing in rural areas, in Los Angeles County, and providing buses to the nearest employment opportunities.

Repurpose Unprofitable Motels and Hotels as Housing for Homeless? For instance, old motels or hotels, that are proving economically not feasible, might be low-entry-cost ways for the Los Angeles County to house the homeless.

Well, that is all for now.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

SUSPICIOUSOBSERVERS NOTES EARTH EFFECTS OF YESTERDAY’S GEOSTORM

I was viewing this video just, to do with the effects of yesterday’s solar storm …

Video: “Record-Breaking Comet, Solar Storm Effects | S0 News Sep.29.2017,” by SuspiciousObservers … https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=27&v=lm4QuCXy3Bc ..

Here’s the Kp index from the solar storm (which was only moderately severe), and had to do with influx of solar winds to Earth:

Image: Kp Index, 29 September 2017 12:30:02 UTC, from NOAA/SWPC … public domain because .gov … This image shows 8 3-hour intervals ‘in the red’ in the last 2 and a half days. Of these, 2 bars were Kp=7, 3 bars were Kp=6, and 3 bars were Kp=5

Image: Kp Index, 29 September 2017 12:30:02 UTC, from NOAA/SWPC … public domain because .gov … This image shows 8 3-hour intervals ‘in the red’ in the last 2 and a half days. Of these, 2 bars were Kp=7, 3 bars were Kp=6, and 3 bars were Kp=5

Nevertheless, these Earth events were apparently associated to the solar storm:

  • A global booking system failure for the airlines, resulting in massive flight delays (1)
  • A transformer fire, resulting in a power outage for 6,000 customers in Snohomish, WA (2)
  • A power outage on a train in the Philadelphia, PA, area, leading the travellers to self-evacuate (3)
  • Playstation went down again. This is a product of Virgin Media, a British internet services provider (4)

QUESTION: COULD THE AIRLINES BE COVERING UP FLIGHT MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS FAILURES CAUSED BY SOLAR STORMS?

When the airlines’ booking systems go down, I wonder if flight tower communications or aircraft flight management systems might also be down … If that were true, surely the airlines wouldn’t want to make this public? Could such a coverup be going on?

CIVILIAN AIRLINES FLIGHTS NO LONGER INCLUDE ENGINEERS OR NAVIGATORS

I read in Wikipedia that civilian airline flights no longer include flight engineers or navigators. Instead, these tasks are undertaken by airlines’ flight management systems (FMS), which depend upon GPS and INS, often with radio navigation backup. (5)

As to this airline radio navigation backup, I’ve read at SWPC/NOAA that geostorms can affect both high frequency and low frequency radio wave transmissions. (6)

Large commercial aircraft, in flight, use VHF (very high frequency) radio when near land, and short-wave nagivation while over the oceans (because they are then out of VHF radio range). (7)

Thus, it appears that all large commercial aircraft are at navigation risk from geostorm radio blackouts … whether they are over land, or over the ocean when the storm hits.

THE STATE OF eLORAN AS A BACKUP FOR GNSS FAILURE: IN THE WINGS, BUT NOT YET HERE

I’ve done some reading on eLORAN as a backup for failure of the global navigation satellite system (GNSS). It looks like there’s a proposal to get it up and running, and that this proposal has passed the House of Representatives:

Link: “House Passes Bill Requiring eLORAN to Safeguard GPS,” by Resilient Navigation and Timing Foundation, 24 July 2017 … https://rntfnd.org/2017/07/24/house-passes-bill-requiring-eloran-to-safeguard-gps/ ..

As far as I can tell, this bill has yet to be approved by the Senate. On the other hand there is the good news that eLORAN and LORAN testing was underway in June 2017:

Link: “eLORAN and LORAN Testing Underway in Late June — GPS World,” by Resilient Navigation and Timing Foundation, 7 June 2017 … https://rntfnd.org/2017/06/07/eloran-and-loran-testing-underway-in-late-june-gps-world/ ..

CARRINGTON EVENT LARGE AIRCRAFT IN-FLIGHT SCENARIO

Until eLORAN is available as a backup, then, to the extent that FMS rely on GNSS, then, they are set up for quite some difficulties should there be a Carrington event. Worst case scenario would be loss of many, or most, in-flight aircraft because of navigation failure during such an event.

Those large aircraft that succeeded in landing would be navigated down by eyesight, out of luck, since there would be no navigators onboard, if I understand it correctly? Then, air traffic control would also be down, so there would be a considerable hazard of collision with other large aircraft on landing.

On the other hand, small aircraft, which are used to piloting by sight, might be relatively ok to fly and land at small craft airports.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

THE KARMA OF HACKING

Times are tough, and many honest people, worldwide, are turning to cyber crime as a way to make ends meet, and to support their families …

It seems that cyber attacks, as with house break-ins, are sourced from our wider circle of friends and acquaintances, including social friends and those we patronize for business.

From my research, I was surprised to find recently, that even long-time friends and acquaintances of folks’ families are not immune from preying on their good friends and relatives, or relatives by marriage, on the pretext that their victims will never know that they are being attacked.

If you and your family are very computer savvy, I beg you to consider the karma of hacking; the karmic results that will manifest in your lives, should you opt to hack.

Consider, for instance …

  • The loss of long-time friendships,
  • The lack of goodwill from the friends and neighbors that might be victims,
  • And the catastrophic results to a family’s legal computer and internet enterprises.

As I understand it, the penalties for hacking and ID theft might be in the range of …

  • $3000 per instance and/or up to 20 years in jail.

How would it be for a family, if one member got a prison sentence? If the penalty were to be financial, how would that affect the family savings account?

Children learn how to interact with the world at their parents’ knee, and by watching what their parents do. How would it be if our children learned to be cyber criminals so as to impress their parents? What future would our children have?

For instance, what if detection of hacking results in a felony conviction? There are restrictions on the liberties of felons, even after they have served time …

  • Felons cannot leave the country.
  • They cannot bear firearms.
  • They cannot serve on juries.

To me, these are very important liberties, the loss of which would be inconceivable. Yet every felon must face their loss.

For those of my readers who are computer savvy: Please take the above into consideration. If you see merit in it, please forward it to your computer savvy friends.

I wish the best for each of you in the coming times.

ON THE WILDING OF SECRET SERVICE CYBER SPYWARE

The astral airs have it that Secret Service cyber spyware worldwide has gone wild, through employees taking software home for personal use, such as to spy on spouses, relatives and friends.

Maybe their less-secure home computers are being hacked by cyber criminals for the software, who then use it for their nefarious undertakings.

Maybe disgruntled ex employees, fired for drug use, are aligning with the drug lords and selling the software as a stopgap till they find employment elsewhere.

Whatever the mode has been, if the astral airs are to be believed, some pretty potent secret service software has gone wild, and is now in the hands of crime families, drug lords, and the mobs and mafias around the world.

What can possibly be done to protect the average Joe and his family from the wiles of these career criminals?

THE ‘ONCE REMOVED’ QUALITY OF HOUSE BREAK-INS AND BURGLARIES: ASTRAL STORIES

With regard to tips to family and friends on house break-ins and burglaries, here are two examples from the clair plane …

  • A woman who has a storefront acupuncture business along with her husband, copies clients’ drivers licenses, which have their addresses on them, when she takes payments. She has an opium addiction, and passes the addresses on to a younger member of her extended family, who specializes in house break-ins. He pays her for the tips on the addresses, and this helps support her opium habit. Because she and her husband are well respected in the community, they are unlikely to fall under suspicion.
  • A young man works for a rental car company as the person who drives clients home after they return their rental cars. He reports to an extended family member on likely looking houses for break-ins. The tips he gives to his burglar family member are not intentional; he wants to keep his job. But both are psychic … as are most people in these days of global telepathy … and the driver cannot keep this information from his burglar friend. Further, because of family bonds, he cannot report the criminal or curtail his activities.

The difficulty here, as telepathy sweeps round the globe, is that people are continuing with crime as usual. Hoping they will get away with it a little longer, despite knowing that an ever-widening circle of acquaintances know what they are doing.

What will happen as these issues of crime amongst neighbors and extended family begin to settle out, is anyone’s guess. I am hoping for a quiet and peaceful transition, insofar as that is possible.

COMMUNICATIONS / TRANSPORTATION AND CRIME: PHONE, INTERNET, AND POST OFFICE

Hacking Personal Computers through Phone Lines

There is an astral rumor that there is a backdoor to people’s phone lines through the online customer service. The rumor goes that it is easy to hack the phone line online passwords, and so gain access to people’s phone messages, and hear or delete them.

There is another rumor that, when people opt for the cable service that combines internet with phone, on one line, crooks can call the phone line, using a randomized phone number, and hack their intended victim’s computers through the phone line back door.

If true, this would allow identity theft, as well as credit card fraud, and it would allow sensitive personal documents to be stolen.

Astral Rumor: Facebook Hacking and Cloning

There is an astral rumor that Facebook has a backdoor to do with cloning folks’ desktops and backing up their hard drives. To avoid this, rumor has it, one must sign off Facebook after each use, and also disable Facebook chat, which is casting up messages on personal computer desktops.

Has the Drug Industry Gone Postal?

The buzz in the astral airs has it that mafia in its various iterations worldwide does its best to place a ringer in post offices, and in the offices of private mail carriers, for nefarious reasons to which they alone are privy. One might hazard a guess that a goal might be postal shipment of drugs and other illegal items.

There is another astral story that crime families are attempting to cut deals with cable carriers to hardwire or software hack personal internets.

Private Helicopter Pads and Drug Transport

Could the astral rumors be true? Are private helicopter pads being used to transport drugs into urban areas? If so, would decriminalization of drugs help with regulation and taxation of the drug industry?

State Check Points on Interstate Freeways

Yet another astral rumor: Are male drug runners at State checkpoints on Interstate freeways disguising themselves as women so as to avoid the typecasting warning signs from popping up with the roadside checkup personnel?

Mass Media, Drugs, and Violence

There is an astral rumor that the themes of the mass media are being financed by mafias worldwide to drum up public support of criminal activities and to cause people to long to take drugs and engage in acts of violence.

Then, there is another astral rumor that the people involved in mass media creation … whether producers, writers, directors, or actors, I have not heard one way or the other … might be involved in drugs and violence and so on, and thus prone to create works of art based on their own experience of life.

Of course, it might also be that many people are already in that space, and longing to take drugs and engage in acts of violence; as I recall, this is closer to the theories proposed by mass media moguls: To wit, that the mass media are a backward looking indicator that creates on the basis of public tastes.

TRACKING OF PERSONAL CARS AND PERSONAL TRAVELS

Location Detection of Personal Automobile through ‘Backdoor’ Factory-Installed Software?

Another astral rumor that I heard in 2016, is to this effect: There is some software purportedly installed in modern, electronic cars, and typically turned on by consumers … could the rumors be referring to Bluetooth or Pandora, I wonder? … that allows crooks to trace the whereabouts of people on the road. The wild astral story had it that the creator of the software, whatever it was, and whoever he was, had relocated to … was it Japan? … and was living the good life there. Maybe this has to do with mapping software in the cars?

Smartphone, Cell Phone, and Facebook Location Detection Software

Then there is a well-breezed-about story, I guess true, to the effect that smartphones and Facebook have location software that, if not disabled, allows a person’s whereabouts to be discovered. I think everyone knows about that, though.

The New Clairs and Clearing of Criminal Tendencies from the Astral Body

Location Detection Backdoor Software Claims. Location detection backdoor software claims are hard to track down, since one of the new clair abilities is to place oneself in someone else’s shoes, and in that way one might figure out someone else’s location. The trouble here comes with insufficient clearing of criminal malware concomitant with the new clair ability manifesting. I expect the Incoming Light will soon provide a fix for that … maybe even during the August 2017 Lion’s Gate.

Spy Camera Claims and Their Easy Resolution. The same is true of astral claims that there are ‘spy cameras’ in personal residences. What this apparently really is, is the new clair ability to ‘put yourself in someone else’s shoes’, combined with as yet uncleared voyeuristic tendencies (peeping tom propensities, for instance) or with the desire to frighten another person, so as to feel less afraid oneself during times of high Light.

So this last item is, in most instances, merely an annoyance. If you have any doubt about it, you can purchase an inexpensive wireless camera RF detector … see https://www.harborfreight.com/wireless-camera-rf-detector-95053.html … from stores such as Harbour Freight, and settle the issue definitively for the sake of the inner child within.

ON EVALUATING AND ACTING ON ASTRAL STORIES

If real life were half as scary as the astral stories, we would all be living in hell, rather than here on Earth. I guess the main thing about the astral stories is: We can take them with a grain of salt, unless evidence pops up that supports them.

Even then, when we have possible evidence in hand, the thing to do is to investigate, on the physical plane. Look folks in the eye … Ask questions.

In most cases, I find that what is actually taking place is a merging of our hellworld scenarios … the landscapes of our unconscious and subconscious fears, angers, and negative touch-points, with the brighter landscape of the conscious mind.

In Timeline terminology, we call this merging denser timelines with the brighter timelines made available to us through the Incoming Light.

What it takes to do the merge is a neutral state of mind. Keep the chest muscles relaxed. Then, as we undergo dharmic action … ‘right action’ … in the physical world, we can transform and merge the negative timelines with the New through the process of Personal Alchemy.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

I have run across several very good lists of clair abilities, including the new abilities of the Awakening. Here is one such list …

NEW AND OLD CLAIR ABILITIES

Link: “‘Meet the Clairs’ – 10 Kinds of Intuition – August 2016,” by Emily Matweow … http://www.okinhealth.com/articles/10-clairsenses-intuition-emily-matweow ..

Link: “Talking About Ascension: Energy, Symptoms, Abilities,” by Ellen M. Gregg … https://ellenmgregg.com/missives-and-messages/talking-about-ascension-energy-symptoms-abilities … Search for the subheading: Ascension Abilities

To the above-referenced list, I would like to add these new clair abilities …

FURTHER ENHANCEMENTS TO OUR CLAIR ABILITIES

These include …

  • Clair sensitivity to the EMF of oneself, of other people, of objects, and of the Solar System and Galaxies
  • Clair hearing on three personal, mental levels: Lower Mental Body, Higher Mental Body, and Supermind (as Sri Aurobindo termed it).
  • Clair hearing on a chakra-by-chakra level, including on the level of each of the Transpersonal Chakras.

CLAIR ABILITIES APPROXIMATED BY ELECTRONIC DEVICES AND NANOTECHNOLOGY

Electronic devices and nanotechnology approximate, in a somewhat clumsy physical way, the clair abilities that are presently becoming universal among humankind. As each of us awakens to these abilities, there is a certain amount of fear expressed by the cells … fear of change. The cells are very conservative little beings, and their upsets routinely present themselves to our awakening Awareness as astral stories with fearful emotional content.

As the new clair skills are a little like electronic devices, they can be mistakenly taken as something negative … unwanted intrusions on our privacy by other people, for instance. And so, it is important to know that our new clair talents, and those of others, are part of God’s plan for the evolution of humankind into the New Human on New Earth. It is important to have faith in ourselves, in God, and in all the new things that are unfolding on Earth in this precious and momentous time.

Here are some thoughts I have about congruences between the new clair abilities and the ‘near-ESP’ conferred by electronic devices and nanotechnology …

Cell Phones. Clair hearing and clair speaking are like cell phones. One must be careful, however, to converse with the Higher Mental Body of another person (this is telepathy with another person’s cerebral cortex, not the gut brain). Say: I’d like to speak with the True Self!

Smart Phones and Internet. Our ability to connect with the Star Libraries now is like using smart phones or computers to connect to the electronic Internet. Further, if we want to connect to the electronic Internet on Earth, and an Internet connection is not handy, we can clair ask someone who is online to check for us, and get the answer through Clair Speak.

Chat Rooms. As everyone on Earth is becoming clair, we are all now able to chat on the clair ‘Internet’ without needing to log into an online chat room.

Television. The new ability of co-creating reality through astral stories is like television. Anyone can be the producer. If there are enough active viewers, an astral story now manifests as semi-physical reality, through manipulation of the Plane of Forces.

Spy Cameras. One of the first of the new clair abilities often tried is that of stepping into someone else’s living room and observing what’s up … we now have ‘X-ray vision’, as did Superman. In future, this ability will also become useful for enhanced emergency medical services, I feel. As well, humankind will learn the art of restraining itself from idle curiosity (ahem!).

Spy Microphones. Most human beings can now eavesdrop on other folks’ conversations, just like that! Many are finding this an almighty inconvenience, but it is beginning to keep everything on the ‘up and up’. As time goes on, trust in the good will of the human community will build. That ‘con operation’ way of being will be eliminated, by common consensus. And further, as with the ‘Spy Camera’ category above,  humankind will learn the art of restraining itself from idle curiosity.

Medical Bots or Nanobots. Clair attunement with others’ subtle bodies, preparatory to clair healing. This is a little like using medical bots to monitor and heal physical disease, but the monitoring bots are our Awareness, and the healing quality is Love.

Drones. As a corollary to the ability of teleportation: Clair telescoping … the ability to clairvoyantly telescope in on a distant location, while still remaining in body … like having a toy drone with a camera in it, that you can see moving over the Earth to the thought-of destination.

CLAIR HEALING

  • DNA. Ability to unfold or fold up the DNA from 2-strand to 12-strand
  • Karmic Miasmic Distortions. Clair healing of karmic miasmic distortions through languages of Light and sound
  • EMF. Clair healing of the self or of others through clarification of the EMF field. Others may be physically close or healing may be ‘remote’
  • Vortex Work. Clair healing of people, land masses, and oceans through vortical release from the lower dimensions to the higher dimensions … that is to say, healing through vortical motion (see the book “The Emerald Tablets of Thoth”)
  • Co-Creation and Fractal Dissemination. Clair healing through co-creation on the astral plane, and fractal dispersal to other people’s energy fields, through their own free will choice to pattern after this new fractal

CLAIR TEMPOROSPATIAL ABILITIES … ‘PLAYING WITH’ THE CURRENTLY MANIFESTING SPACE-TIME CONTINUUM

  • Timelines. Clair timeline optimization, merges, jumping, and looping (either to the future or to the past in a particular timeline)
    • Clair rollback, brief: the ability to rollback a timeline to re-hear other people’s clair speak that has just slipped by unnoticed. Say: Rollback! and feel the astral story roll back to a minute prior, then replay itself
  • Dimensions. Clair dimensional optimization, merges, downloads (from the higher dimensions), and uploads (to the higher dimensions, so as to clear lower dimensions)

PATANJALI’S LIST OF CLAIR ABILITIES IN THE CONTEXT OF THE AWAKENING

In the way of old clair abilities that are surfacing among normal people now, we have those listed in the “Aphorisms of Patanjali.” These were previously thought of as ‘superpowers’ available only to Spiritual Adepts. See …

  • Link: “Patanjali’s Yoga Aphorisms: Chapter III – Powers,” by Swami Vivekananda … http://hermetic.com/vivekananda/raja-yoga/powers.html ..
  • and for a different commentary on these superpowers, see Swami Prabhavananda and Christopher Isherwood’s edition of this book … Citation: “How to Know God: The Yoga Aphorisms of Patanjali,” translated with a commentary by Swami Prabhavananda and Christopher Isherwood, copyright 1953, 1981 by The Vedanta Society of Southern California ..

From this list, I would like to emphasize these powers; note that I have added editorial comments in the context of the Awakening …

Knowledge of past lives (# 18 on Patanjali’s list) … technically, in the context of the Awakening, this is knowledge of lives concurrently playing out in the Eternal Now. This is the video library of the Multidimensional, Multitemporal Self (or ‘Atman’)

Observation of another person’s body, and inference into his mind (#19) … The samskaras, or Soul wounding now being cleared by the Incoming Light, can be observed in a person’s physical or gross form, and in his astral form and etheric net, which are two of his subtle bodies. These reflect distortions in the Body of Light, which are easily resolved through the new clair abilities to heal through Light and sound.

Power to become invisible (# 21) … The power suggested by Patanjali have to do with interference with another person’s physical vision. The new clair ability has to do with clarification of the body of Light, and concentration on this energy field, which is so rare and refined that it passes through physical matter.

Power to becoming unhearable (#22) … The power suggested by Patanjali, like the preceding power, has to do with obstructing the sense organ perception of others. The new clair ability has to do with focusing one’s hearing on the Music of the Spheres. I believe Tom Kenyon expresses this in his Aethos sound meditation … see www.tomkenyon.com ..

On gaining knowledge about the cosmic spaces, the arrangement of stars, and the motions of the stars (#27, 28 and 29) … It seems to me that studying these would be useful in regaining knowledge of our internal star maps, gaining access to the star libraries, and aligning with the manifestation of God’s love, truth and will through our Star brethren alliances

On meditation-union with the heart, which gives one power over the mind‘s contents (#35) … To clarify, one attains power over one’s own mind through meditation-union with one’s own heart. This is because the heart is the center of our personal electromagnetic-field, and the three minds (Lower Mental Body, Higher Mental Body, and Superconscious Mind) are merely substations of our EMF. The heart is the Central Command post of the EMF, as it were.

Supernatural powers of the senses, such as sight, touch, hearing, scent and taste. (#37). Per # 38, these are obstacles to Awakening. Why is this? Because when we have supernatural sensory abilities, we have twice the trouble stilling the mind. Further, it is a simple thing to impress other people with our supernatural sensory abilities, and it is easy to fall into the net of caring what other people think of us, so attaining these powers can tighten our karmic knots and increase our EMF distortions. This causes a darkening, or mottling, of our Body of Light. We must daily and hourly undertake the chore of clearing this subtle body, under any circumstances, but especially so when our senses extend to the supernatural realms.

About walking on water (#40) and levitating (#43): I offer the same caveats as for “Supernatural powers of the senses,” above. Further, the demon realm offers these powers … without our having to do any yogic ‘push-ups’ … by fiddling with the Plane of Forces; in exchange, it will enslave our minds through a demonic contract, and this contract will remove from us the ability to light up our hearts, so that we can master our three minds. If you want to walk on water or levitate, do not ask the demon realm to ‘make it so’. Instead, align with God’s will and heart and mind, and allow the Awakening of your Ascension skills to proceed in a natural, unforced manner.

Mastery of the elements (fire, air, water, earth, ether) (#46) has its drawbacks unless one is first aligned with God. For instance, making rain stop or start in a given location, merely for the sake of one’s convenience, can cause personal karmic entanglement, and tarnish the body of Light (see above).

Becoming unobstructed by the elements: Swami Prabhavananda and Christopher Isherwood have a great writeup on this …. q.v. (‘quod vide’, ‘which see’). It sounds like fun, and also useful in an Awakening context, and for healing others.

Perfection of the body. There is a great spiritual tradition, as with the Buddhist monks, regarding perfection of the physical body concomitant with realization and Awakening of Spirit. I like this one, as long as it is undertaken in the context of providing a suitable home or house for Spirit. As they say in the Christian tradition, the body is the temple of the Holy Spirit … thus, it certainly makes sense to keep it healthy, graceful, strong, and beautiful or handsome. In Ancient India, the science of yoga was an important means to this end, and remains so today. Of course, there are also the opportunities of Western physical education and ‘cross-training’, which allows improvement of the various muscle groups. Stretching the muscles, and overall balance in development of the body, are equally important to strength training of various muscle sets. Massage of the viscera, with attention to acupressure points, stills the unconscious mind and perfects the function of the involuntary nervous system. (1)

Meditation-union with a single moment, and single-moment sequences (#53): Intuitively, I feel this will help perfect knowledge of the Eternal Now and of our timeline skills.

ON CHANGES IN SOCIETAL NEEDS DUE TO ASCENSION ABILITIES

Transportation. New powers of teleportation will obviate automobiles, trains, helicopters, and airplanes.

Housing, Food. and Utilities. As more people gain the ability to regulate their body temperature, obtain sustenance through Light, and co-create physical things such as houses, notions of property ownership and ‘paying one’s dues’ through wage slavery will obsolesce.

Life Expectancy and Medical Care. Life expectancy will be much greater, and we will be able to heal our bodies through the languages of light and sound, which are free to all.

Procreation. The Lower Mental Body, through which procreational desire and the urges of self-preservation and control of others are expressed, will be unified with the Higher Mental Body and the Supermind, creating in each of us what is known as Cosmic Mind or Universal Mind. The high procreation rate on Earth today has to do with the relegation of the Lower Mental Body to an unconscious state … what is termed the ‘involuntary’ nervous system in the medical texts. As we Awaken, there will no longer be an involuntary nervous system. As with the accomplished yogis of India, each human being on Earth will be able to consciously control the urge to have sex.

Crime. It follows from the above that the functions of the autonomic nervous system (the ANS) … which have to do with the ‘viscera’ … the heart, stomach and intestines … will be under conscious control. When we are able to regulate our heartbeat, then impulsive behaviors, and criminal tendencies as well, are easily curbed.

Ecosystem, Health of Oceans, Climate, Weather, and Tectonic Plate Activity. These will be easily transformed, moment to moment, through humankind’s coherent co-creative ability. This is within reach now, and can be achieved through simultaneous visualizations by such institutions as the Global Coherence Initiative … https://www.heartmath.org/gci/ ..

ABOUT CLAIR ABILITIES, DISCLOSURE, AND TRANSFORMATION OF FINANCE, ECONOMICS, AND WORLD GOVERNMENT

The above two abilities, ‘Spy Camera’ and ‘Spy Microphones’, are quite clearly going to have a major impact on world government, economics, and finance, as there will be disclosure after disclosure (for more on disclosure, search the internet for this term). The result will be transparency and coherence in every human arena.

THE ALL: INGROUPS, OUTGROUPS, AND THE ‘COMMON’ GOOD

As more and more people ‘Log on’, the notion of in-groups will expand outward till it encompasses all humankind, and from there onward to every sentient being everywhere in the Universe. Consequently, there will no longer be ‘outgroups’. All beings everywhere will be our ‘ingroup’. And so, decision-making regarding the common good will include what might be termed the ‘uncommon good’.

In other words, those whose welfare we might never before have considered, in our decision-making process, will now be included. In this way the barriers of nationality, culture, race, religion, politics, gender, sexual preference, and so on, will be eliminated.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
