Beneath a construction site for a glassy, 22-story hotel in New York, archaeologists unearthed a history of drinking, eating and lodging, along with a tradition of consuming cure-alls and potions for good health, according to a report in DNA Info. The discovery included a two hundred-year-old glass bottle that once contained the “Elixir of Long Life”. Now the research team have tracked down the original German recipe used to create the elixir for fending off death.
“We decided to engage in our own brand of experimental archaeology,” said Alyssa Loorya, the president of Chrysalis, a company regularly hired by the city to oversee excavation projects. Loorya enlisted researchers in Germany to track down the recipe in an old medical guide, which revealed that the potion contained ingredients such as aloe, which is anti-inflammatory, gentian root, which aids digestion, as well as rhubarb, zedoary, and Spanish saffron – ingredients still used by herbalists today.
In addition to the Elixir of Long Life, archaeologists also discovered two bottles of Dr Hostetters Stomach Bitters, a once-popular 19th century medicine, which contained a complex mixture of ingredients including Peruvian bark, which has malaria-fighting properties, and gum kino, a kind of tree sap that is antibacterial. Loorya and her team are have recreated both types of elixir, which they say taste very bitter.
Today I would like to return to your awareness an aspect of the Human condition that can be persuaded into believing in something that isn’t real. The magician with his iconic hat and cloak is far from being the master of such illusions. This dubious distinction belongs to the politician. Behind their towering podium, they extol virtues of a utopian world while deceptively masking true intent.
And there is magic in their words. We want to believe in our elected— that they will indeed serve us in a dignified, judicious way and their campaign promises will come to fruition. But the role of the politician is duplicitous at best. Those who seek higher office often answer to a much lower calling. Motivated by the prospect of ill-gotten gains, some won’t hesitate to arrange lucrative deals and secure favors with guarantees that will stay in place long after leaving office. This lure can prove especially intoxicating to the high-functioning psychopath who would sell their country short in a heartbeat for the right price and a cursory nod in history books. They seem to always have a trick up their sleeve and an Ace of Spades hidden in their shoe.
In the following paragraphs I’ll briefly touch on what arguably could be the most impressive of all tricks. It is an illusion of grand scale. It’s a maniacal construct so perverse, so malevolent, that it often defies comprehension. And that’s exactly why it works. This deception is known as “false flag” provocation. It’s an effective instrument for ushering in a flood of new laws along with sweeping changes to existing rules and policies.
Britain’s top spy agency has developed a suite of software programs it uses to manipulate Internet traffic, infiltrate users’ computers and spread preselected messages across social media sites that include Facebook and YouTube, according to recently published reports.
ZDNet said that the technology used by the agency, GCHQ, was revealed in documents first published by The Intercept. Each piece of software is further described in a Wiki document written by the spy agency’s Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group, or JTRIG. The document reads like a software inventory list and it ominously calls the tools part of the agency’s “weaponised capability.”
As noted by investigative journalist Glenn Greenwald at The Intercept:
The capabilities, detailed in documents provided by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, even include an old standby for pre-adolescent prank callers everywhere: A way to connect two unsuspecting phone users together in a call.
See it in action here….
Kate of Gaia ..to share the concepts of how I see the world/reality illusion anogogically….this is sheer brilliance of an illustration circumstance….here’s the anogogic set up…..the one dialing the numbers (unknown to either of each other/left and right brain ego) and that one is YOU. So one side is calling the other side and BOTH think THEY’RE getting called because neither of them MADE the call…YOU did. the cosmic joke….k….so look at the two guys on the phone that have NO idea of what is going on as the monkey chatter thoughts of the LITERAL reality trap….savvy? When you find YOU in YOU (monkey chatter literals cease….MEDITATE!!!!) you will then see YOU in EVERYONE….what happens then is the EGO of everyone is FULLY exposed because you can finally see the PROGRAM as well as seeing YOU. That’s what I call sync resonance, when you see MULTIPLE connections because you can sync them all up…the single thread to unravel the game.
As these two guys ( represents one ego, L & R) start to heat up, this is the reaction I see when I talk to people where most at least have their emotions in check and some heat up as quick as these two did….the irony?…they were arguing with each other and neither of them had anything to argue about except that YOU programmed their program…just for a laugh…good one….now watch as YOU insert THOUGHTS (in red letters) into these guys/ego reality to fire them up even more….this is the same program that is used to control humanity by the system in third party conflict style aka “rumourmongerers”…there will be wars and rumours of wars…the war is already won when the literal reality can drive a literal thought wedge into your divided ego and rip it apart….we only argue and blame because the ego sees a bigger wedge in truth and redirects that accountability wedge between itself and the scary truth….
You can easily see the rational mind/calm emotion ego in check neutral…and the schizoid mind/batshit angry ego at the helm with both “victims” of this prank….it was the rational mind that caught the “third party interloper”, not the crazy….I stop talking as soon as the crazy ego starts to get the upper hand…trying to do more is like trying to pet a pit bull you just kicked in the nuts….ain’t gonna happen….There is so much more in this but if you get the cosmic joke, you’ll be in stitches…I still have tears from laughing so hard…*please note….only aware beings will get this post so any comments made from a LITERAL perspective will be deleted and your universe collapsed.

GAZA, July 23 (Reuters) – Using tunnels, mines, booby traps and snipers, Hamas fighters have inflicted record casualties on Israeli troops waging an offensive in the Gaza Strip, applying years of training in urban warfare with a new tactical acumen and suicidal resolve.
The Israelis say weapons and know-how supplied by Iran and its Lebanese ally Hezbollah make Hamas a more formidable foe.
Four days after Israel launched a withering ground assault on the Palestinian Islamist militants in their stronghold of Shejaia following intensive air strikes, the army still does not have complete control of the area.
Smoke from shelled homes and the buzz of Israeli drones clog the sky above the wrecked district on Gaza’s eastern border.

Our readers know by now that the quest for the true and uncensored history of the human race often takes us to the most remarkable places where we encounter unexplained artifacts, mummies and other prehistoric traces that challenge orthodox science.
While doing research on extraterrestrial activities in ancient Egypt, we stumbled upon a story that is as remarkable as intriguing.
In MessageToEagle’s article Mystery Of The Alien Mummy And The Crystal Tomb In Egypt, our researcher Ellen Lloyd discussed the fascinating discovery of secret chamber with a crystal container (tomb) inside the Great Pyramid of Cheops. In the container (tomb), there was lying an alien humanoid that appeared to be in a dormant state.
This brings us yet another odd discovery that was related some years ago and also involves a being of extraterrestrial origin that could have lived during the reign of King Tutankhamun.
In a shock statement, head of the Cairo University Archeology Department, Dr Ala Shaheen told an audience some years ago that there might be truth to the theory that aliens helped the ancient Egyptians build the oldest of pyramids, namely the Pyramids of Giza.

Living in this day and age where there are so many obvious changes and shifts on the planet through the weather upheavals, occupy movements, continual wars throughout the globe, coupled with the emotional instability of many in the nation, it is also true that many of us are waking up to something greater within ourselves. Perhaps you, too, have had unexplained experiences with the paranormal, time travel, , and the like and wish there was a place to get some answers. Following is a brief story and explanation of what is called a “parallel” reality. It is my hope that this article and others on my site help you understand the strange and mysterious.
West Side Story’s Many Sides
When I was around 12 years old, the movie premiere of the critically acclaimed theatrical production of “West Side Story” with Natalie Wood, Richard Beymer, Russ Tamblyn, and Rita Moreno, was set to air on one of the local TV stations for the very first time. (This must have been in the mid 60′s as the true USA premiere was in 1961 in New York City.) My parents wanted the whole family to sit and watch the premiere together. They were so excited, telling the five of us how much we will love this movie, how wonderful it is, and ‘we are in for a treat.’ We were planning one of our movie nights, sitting together on the dense wool carpeted floor of our living room with our snacks of chips and cookies. My parents and the household overall kept the momentum throughout the day in preparation for this major event with one exception. Me.
As Gaza body toll mounts, NBC executives crack down on criticism of Israel.
MSNBC contributor Rula Jebreal’s on-air protest of the network’s slanted coverage of Israel’s ongoing assault on the Gaza Strip has brought media suppression of the Israel-Palestine debate into sharp focus. Punished for her act of dissent with the cancellation of all future appearances and the termination of her contract, Jebreal spoke to me about what prompted her to speak out and why MSNBC was presenting such a distorted view of the crisis.
“I couldn’t stay silent after seeing the amount of airtime given to Israeli politicians versus Palestinians,” Jebreal told me. “They say we are balanced but their idea of balance is 90 percent Israeli guests and 10 percent Palestinians. This kind of media is what leads to the failing policies that we see in Gaza.”
She continued, “We as journalists are there to afflict the comfortable and who is comfortable in this case? Who is really endangering both sides and harming American interests in the region? It’s those enforcing the status quo of the siege of Gaza and the occupation of the West Bank.”
Now in its third year of record-breaking drought conditions, the water-deprived state of California is reportedly beefing up its law enforcement to crack down on so-called water “abusers” who use too much. In Los Angeles, a full-time “water cop,” with three more on the way, now patrols the streets daily looking for violators, according to the Los Angeles Daily News (LADN), an indication of the escalating water wars taking place in the West.
More than 75 percent of California’s water stock is currently devoted to agriculture, with the remaining 25 percent nourishing residents, feeding lawns and washing cars. But with an ever-growing population and increasing demand, clean water is increasingly becoming a rarity in the Golden State. Because of this, drought restrictions have been enacted in many areas that restrict when and how much water can be used for secondary purposes, rules that many residents continually flout.
In years past, the state was able to get away with relatively loose enforcement of these water rules, given the caveat that at least some people would abide by them out of principle, conserving just enough of this precious resource to get by. But as drought conditions continue to break record levels, and with an underperforming El Nino season expected this fall, stricter enforcement of water restrictions is necessary, claims the state.
There is a re-emerging truth. Western society is finally embracing what Eastern traditions and our indigenous cultures have always known. Most people with a spiritual orientation recognise the existence of the mind, body and soul, however, there is more. Our soul is not the only energetic form we encapsulate. Let me explain.
For 10 years, I worked as a social worker in a busy hospital. Over those years it came to pass that I worked with over 400 deaths. For most of the patients I attended to, their death had been sudden, unexpected and always traumatic. My role as the social worker was to support and guide the patient’s family and loved ones as they attended a viewing, said goodbye, and completed the police identification. I always felt the privilege that comes with this type of position. To be present at one of life’s most sacred final rites was something that always held its own reverence.
Unbeknownst to my professional colleagues and the patient’s family, there were times where I found myself in a state of awareness and communication with the soul of the patient who had died or was dying. This was profound at first and over time became normalised as the way I experienced hundreds of deaths. I always maintained professional boundaries, and would never disclose to the family or medical team that I was having a spiritual experience with the souls as they moved across into the non-physical world. It was simply not professional to do so, and I held my role as the social worker in the highest regard.
What is great is that many people are starting to realize that organic food is the future! There are more and more farmers switching to organic farming and producing amazing healthy foods but are unable to use the organic label. This is because there are many farmers who don’t have the means to pay the fees required of the USDA to obtain an organic label then there are others who choose to protest the federal takeover of the organic program and want to make sure the standards are kept high. There are others who do not want to deal with the highly demanding amount of paperwork the USDA insists upon organic farms. Certified Naturally Grown, Inc, was founded by Kate & Ron Khosla who operated a community supported farm in New Paltz, New York. They along with many other smaller, local farms wanted to keep the integrity of organic and to keep the federal government and big corporate interests at arms length, so they started the ‘Certified Naturally Grown’ certification program, it has continued to grow and grow across the country and is now a national program. It is a great movement considering the recent reports of government power grabs that threaten to undermine the standards of organic food.

On July 31 of 1846 the merchant vessel Brooklyn arrived at Yerba Buena, California: present day San Francisco. Among the 245 passengers was one Samuel Brannan; an opportunistic businessman, and first president of the LDS mission in California. Among his cargo was a printing press and complete flour mill. Brannan soon started the areas second newspaper, the California Star, and not long after that, the first school in San Francisco; and a dry goods store, the only one in the entire area. In 1847 Sam Brannan expanded, opening a store in Sacramento, and another at Sutter’s fort. In January of 1848 when gold was discovered at Sutter’s mill, Brannan owned the only store between the gold fields and San Francisco. He made a small fortune nearly overnight, selling picks, pans & shovels to the growing numbers of gold seekers.
Never one to waste an opportunity for profit, the California Star regularly ran headlines about fortunes in gold being discovered, and helped to ignite the actual California gold rush. As more and more people began showing up hoping to strike it rich, Sam Brannan was busy conducting secret deals with the ship captains, ensuring they sold their cargo of mining supplies only to him.

“One of the girls vanished completely. No bones, no arms, no legs. Nothing that might suggest that a little girl of 9 years existed in this place just seconds ago.”
Despite a long night of bombing, I woke early Tuesday morning to the sound of voices drifting through the window of my room, newly displaced people taking refuge in the United Nations Relief and Works Agency school across the street. In the last two weeks thousands have been forced to leave their homes on the coastal side of Beit Lahia and Beit Hanoun to avoid being killed by a shell from a tank or a warship.
They have brought with them little but their desire to survive and have traveled toward Jabalia, the neighborhood I have lived in all my life. Jabalia is itself a refugee camp, established after the 1948 Nakba when thousands of were forced to leave their villages and towns across the country that was Palestine. Already the most densely populated camp in the Gaza Strip, Jabalia is now receiving a new wave of refugees after 66 years.
From my window, which overlooks the school, I can see old women, exhausted, sitting down on the little steps in front of the playground, their children clinging to them, many of them crying; old men are looking nervously up to the sky where drones are still hovering, making a noise that they will not forget in the years they have left. The UNRWA man is trying to organize everything in this chaos.
Besides the manipulated media spewing the Zionist party line and repressing the truth, we’re seeing a barrage of psychotic postings of every type all over the internet attempting to stamp out legitimate information that, of course, is not in their favor.
Take “Johnny Paleswine” for example, who reared his ugly fascist head today trying to get a comment by on my website in response to Psycho Israel Drops White Phosphorus Bombs on Gazans – Again.
Apparently putting the words “Psycho” and “Israel” together hits their internet search hot buttons – Bingo!
“Israel is doing it the Anglo Muslim way. Anglos and Muslims have been competing who can kill, rape and displace more humans. Anglos killed, displaced millions from Colombia to Australia and have no shame. Same for Muslims.
Two races that love to kill.
Zen cares so much for the children. How many children have been massacred by MUSLIMS in SYRIA?? Over 11,000. No tears for them. Jews are not doing it so who cares.
YOU ARE THE COWARD – ISIS is coming to the USA.”
He’s right on one thing, others have also perpetrated horrific atrocities on populations, but that doesn’t excuse the wicked actions of Zionism. What an ignorant, obviously manipulated diversion. But their age old smokescreen is coming down as this ilk furiously fights to establish their illegitimacy with the same old polluted war of words.
“While the US’s officials and media continue to pretend like pot legalization is an unprecedented, far-fetched dream, in Spain, personal marijuana has been legal for decades.”
While people in Barcelona, Spain are lighting joints up on the street outside of bars as tourists flock to enjoy a marijuana culture that increasing rivals Amsterdam, the U.S. continues it’s prohibitionist path. While Israel’s government sanctions its researchers’ advancements into the science of marijuana medicine, the U.S. government obstructs any research into pot’s potential benefits.
While many Americans remain stuck in the Nixon-era “war on drugs” mentality, panicking about the “unknown dangers” and “potential risks” of loosening marijuana policy, many nations have already implemented health-based, sensible marijuana laws and practices with overwhelming success.
In the U.S. today, 23 states have legalized medical marijuana (New York just this month) and two (Colorado and Washington) have legalized pot for recreational use (although it’s worth noting that in many states medical marijuana laws are severely restricted).
The majority of American medical doctors think medical marijuana should be legal and the majority of American voters think it should be legal and regulated like alcohol. However, it remains safe to say the U.S. is not at the global forefront of progressive, sensible marijuana policy.

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” ~ Nikola Tesla
We often see painters showing a ball of light or halo around the heads of enlightened figures. This invisible, divine energy that actually surrounds every living thing in the universe, is the aura. There are times when you feel the positive or negative vibrations of an individual, that’s the aura of a person. It is a direct reflection of what exists deep within, our true selves and our physical, emotional and spiritual condition.
It is scientifically proven that electromagnetic fields exist around every object in the known world. While in science its often referred as energy field, in the metaphysical world this energy emission is known as a person’s aura. Everyone’s aura is unique – some have a healthy aura while some unconsciously possess an unhealthy one. It describes a person’s emotional state of being.
The aura surrounds the body in an oval-shaped field, also known as the Auric egg. Human energy extends up to one meter on all the sides, above the head and below the feet into the ground. Aura isn’t the result of an imagination or illusion but a real phenomenon. This physical manifestation of the spiritual aura was shown in Kirlian photography that revealed visible auras around the objects photographed.
Abby Martin speaks with Annie Machon, a former M15 officer and whistleblower, to break down Germany’s reaction to recent reports that the US hired spies in the country as well as leaks that reveal GCHQ’s ability to manipulate the web.
This is/ was maybe their aim, but no longer relevant. We have ALWAYS controlled our own reality but bowed to influence and manipulation. Now you can create the reality you want.
For the longest time, I have resisted accepting money for advertising on Sustainable Man. I’ve had tons of offers – many from eco-conscious brands – who have offered to pay me to promote their products or services. And I do need the money as my savings from my previous corporate job have run out. But today I have decided for sure – I will not enter into any contract to accept money to advertise anything on Sustainable Man. This is why.
The first reason is that the idea of accepting money to tell people things that I already want to tell them goes against my intuition. When I think about accepting money to promote something, my gut tightens up and, personally, I feel disgusted. I have learned that when things don’t sit well, it is time to meditate to attempt to uncover the reasons why I feel uneasy about the idea. It turns out there was a lot that I didn’t like about the idea of paid advertising.
Let’s forget for a moment that the purpose of almost all advertising is to promote yet another product or service that individuals buy, usually for themselves. And most of the people who are buying these products or services don’t really need them. I mean, does anybody really need a t-shirt with the Sustainable Man logo on it? Is marketing products the only way to fund an idea or business?

While Americans in the nearby city of Detroit face life in third world conditions, unable to even afford running water, the state of Michigan decided to direct its resources towards cracking down on a small food co-op in Standish for having the utter audacity to provide milk, butter, cream and eggs to people who bought shares in the organic dairy.
The Michigan Department of Agriculture must be so proud of their deeds, after they forced Joe and Brenda Golimbieski, the owners of Hill High Dairy and Jenny Samuelson, the owner of My Family Co-op, to dump out 248 gallons of milk, to break 100 dozen eggs, and to destroy an undisclosed amount of fresh cream, butter and cheese.
According to a post on the Hill High Dairy page on Facebook, the agents from the MDA stood over the family, watching as the food was destroyed.
100 dozen eggs… Each egg had to be broken. 248 gallons dumped in a sprayer that had to be witnessed by MDA being dumped and sprayed on the field.
Here are pictures of the destruction of this food from Hill High Dairy page – if you’re on Facebook, please go and give them a “like” to show your support.

Mindless tyrannical fucking bastards.
In the walls of the cubicle there were three orifices. To the right of the speakwrite, a small pneumatic tube for written messages, to the left, a larger one for newspapers; and in the side wall, within easy reach of Winston’s arm, a large oblong slit protected by a wire grating. This last was for the disposal of waste paper. Similar slits existed in thousands or tens of thousands throughout the building, not only in every room but at short intervals in every corridor. For some reason they were nicknamed memory holes. When one knew that any document was due for destruction, or even when one saw a scrap of waste paper lying about, it was an automatic action to lift the flap of the nearest memory hole and drop it in, whereupon it would be whirled away on a current of warm air to the enormous furnaces which were hidden somewhere in the recesses of the building.
He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.
- From George Orwell’s 1984
The reason Big Brother and his band of technocrat authoritarians spend so much time and effort erasing history in the classic novel 1984, is because they are a bunch of total criminals and they know it. Their grip on power is made so much easier if the proles are kept ignorant, confused and in the dark. This strategy is not just fiction, it is the philosophy of tyrants and authoritarians throughout history.

The proliferation of marijuana edibles for both medical and recreational purposes is giving rise to a cottage industry of baked goods, candies, infused oils, cookbooks and classes that promises a slow burn as more states legalize the practice and awareness spreads about the best ways to deliver the drug.
Edibles and infused products such as snack bars, olive oils and tinctures popular with medical marijuana users have flourished into a gourmet market of chocolate truffles, whoopie pies and hard candies as Colorado and Washington legalized the recreational use of marijuana in the past year.
“You’re seeing a lot of these types of products like cannabis cookbooks,” said Erik Altieri, spokesman for the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. “They’ve always been popular among a subset of marijuana, but with the fact that more and more people from the mainstream are able to consume, there’s a lot more interest.”
