“But our love was a song, sung by a dying swan…”
This Saturday evening’s Samsung playlist submission comes from the movie Oblivion. I never saw the movie at the theater but, caught it on HBO at my uncle’s house (I was dog-sitting). It is a fascinating movie and very sad. It is visually stunning with a unique cast and Tom Cruise loves to play the action hero. At the end of the movie, as the credits roll, this song kicks in. It immediately gave me chills and made me cry.
Director Joseph Kosinski chose French electronic band M83 to compose the soundtrack for the movie and brought in Joseph Trapanese to co-write the score. He’d used Daft Punk for Tron: Legacy but, wanted a different sound for Oblivion.
Written by Anthony Gonzalez and Susanne Sundfør, Sundfør handled lead vocals. She has a stunning voice. Released as a single on March 26, 2013, the only chart that the song shows up in is the French SNEP singles chart. It debuted at 114 the week of April 20 but, only lasted for three weeks. Sundfør made her US television debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on April 17.
“Don’t forget to stick around for the credits that are set to M83’s brilliant title song, Oblivion featuring Susanne Sundfør.”
“Also, the film’s closing credits track, also called “Oblivion” and featuring vocals by Susanne Sundfor, might be the best theme song since “Skyfall.”

Hanspostcard has a song draft challenge. This is my Round Nine pick.
This, and my last pick, will feature two women that are a little less known in the music world. I skipped right over the 2000s (only so many choices) and hopped into the next decade. I happened to catch this song while listening to the University of Texas @ Austin’s radio station (a station involved with SXSW). I was hooked and I went looking for it…and her. Elisabeth Corrin Maurus or Lissie is a singer-songwriter out of Rock Island, Illinois.
“I always sang, since I was little and wrote poems in high school. I sort of taught myself to play guitar lines to the poems and stuff. In high school, it seems like everyone has more drama than any other time in their life, [so] that was the time in my life where I really leaned on music as a way to stay sane…”

In her senior year, she was kicked out of high school (she spit in a teacher’s face) and had to get a GED, elsewhere. Then, she hit the road, troubadour-style. She attended Colorado State in Fort Collins and liked to open for other traveling acts. After a short time in Paris, she moved to Los Angeles, met Betsy Hammer and scored an introduction to Brooks Arthur. Hammer & Arthur took her to talent manager Guy Oseary and he got her to producer Glen Ballard. She can be heard singing in the movie Have Dreams, Will Travel (Dream It Out Loud) and performed at the wedding of Demi Moore & Ashton Kutcher in 2005 (Oseary’s referral). In January 2008, she opened for Lenny Kravitz (via a hook-up on MySpace).
The third track from the album Catching A Tiger, In Sleep was released in April of 2010 and the only chart it showed up on was the UK iTunes Single of the Week. The album did manage to make it to #5 on the Billboard Folk Albums & Top Heatseekers charts and, #34 on the Independent Albums chart. The album’s first release was in the UK and hit the US two months later.
“Not to be mistaken for Lissy Trullie, […] Lissie Maurus deals in sun-kissed pop-blues straight from Laurel Canyon.
Her 12-track debut conjures images of highways and horses, with Lissie’s smoky tones echoing Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks.”

Give her a listen. I think she is fantastic and her two band members are outstanding, as well. They are all over YouTube and, in live recordings, her bassist is sitting down, keeping the drum/cymbal beat. Talk about multitasking. I’ve included the studio version of this that has more drum work on it and a possible synthesizer. I’m also including her version of Go Your Own Way. which actually charted in the UK in 2012. The studio version sounds like it has a cello in it and is part of the soundtrack from the movie Safe Haven. She has been very busy.

Hanspostcard has a song draft challenge. This is my Round Two pick.
I grew up around lots of music. My dad had his tastes, my mom had hers and I got some exposure to my grandparents music, too. There was plenty of Elvis, Buddy Holly, Everly Brothers, Ricky Nelson, Gene Pitney, Chuck Berry, Johnny Cash, Johnny Horton, The Ventures, The Beach Boys, instrumental music (think Hugo Montenegro or Paul Mauriat), funny stuff like Ben Colder/Sheb Wooley, Ray Stevens or David Seville (my dad’s stuff), The Four Seasons, Motown, soul music, beach music (my mom’s stuff), big band music (my paternal grandparents) and, bluegrass, country and Latin/jazz (maternal grandparents). One song, in particular, that reminds me of my dad the most is Cathy’s Clown. When I was a kid, my dad liked to just get in the car, drive around and listen to the radio. It was, literally, No Particular Place To Go. When I became an adult, we’d still get in the car and cruise. He and I would sing Cathy’s Clown, together, with me taking Phil’s harmony. I still own my dad’s original 45. ~Vic
Written by Don, it was recorded in March and released in April 1960. It was recorded live, in a single take, with both brothers sharing a microphone. Floyd Cramer was on piano, Floyd Chance on bass and Buddy Harman on drums. An odd song, it has a chorus and bridges but, no verses. It was their first single for Warner Bros. It spent five weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, one week on the Billboard’s R&B chart and seven weeks at #1 on UK’s Singles chart. It was their biggest selling single and their last #1 after Wake Up Little Susie and All I Have to Do Is Dream.
The song is ranked at #150 Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time and it was added to the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress in 2013. Covers have been done by Reba McEntire and Neil Sedaka (1983) with McEntire’s version reaching #1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and Canada’s RPM Country Tracks chart in 1989. There is even a Jan and Dean version on Filet Of Soul Redux: The Rejected Master Recordings (2017).

A Blog Post From: The Chris Thomas Files
[Note: I made a Fifth Dimension post on December 2, 2018. It was Chris Thomas’s first attempt to try to explain the “Ascending to a 5th Dimension” nonsense. It was one of his earliest essays and it was posted on the, now, defunct Mount Zion 144 Forum on May 15, 2011. This essay revisits the 5th Dimension issue and became Chris’s very last, full-length essay. It was published on October 30, 2013, on the One-Vibration Forum, via a blog post by one of his clients.]
Over the past number of years, we have heard repeated claims that we need to “Ascend to a 5th Dimension”…these claims coming to us from a number of channeled sources such as Ashtar Command, Sananda, St. Germaine, The Agarthans, The Galactic Federation of Light, etc., etc… We have all read these messages from our inter-galactic “friends” and, for the most part, many people have accepted these claims and offers of help at face value in the hope that the actions of these alien beings will resolve all of the desperate problems we have here on Earth. In fact, so desperate are we to remove ourselves from the current conditions on Earth that we are prepared to accept these promises of help without question.
Rarely, if ever, have people asked themselves what “Ascending to the 5th Dimension” would actually mean for us humans, or to the planet we live on. Currently, scientists describe us as living in a three dimensional world. There is nothing special about this description as all it describes is the fact that we are physical. Each of us, and the objects we encounter in life, have a physical form that is described as being three-dimensional. We can measure these three physical dimensions in a physical way […] the length, width and height of our physical world define who we are in terms of physical bulk and, also, our physical location in relation to other objects or to other people. That is what is meant by ‘we live in a three-dimensional world’. We have a physical presence and a physical existence.
Whilst time can be measured in a linear fashion, one second following another, one minute following another, one hour following another, etc…it is not the way in which we perceive time. For example, if we are having a busy day, then, one hour can feel as though it has passed in a minute, whereas, if we are having a very boring day, then, one minute can feel to have taken an hour. So, whilst time can be measured, we perceive it in different ways depending upon our circumstances. Also, if you talk with quantum physicists, they will tell you their theories about multiple dimensions existing outside of our solar system. But, these are just theories and are not “provable” in any way, as we cannot access anything that exists outside of our solar system. [For] all intents and purposes, we are three-dimensional beings who live on a three-dimensional planet that exists within a three-dimensional solar system. What occurs outside of our solar system and the dimensions in which other planets exist or, the dimensions in which other forms of life exist, is totally unknown to science.
So, what can be meant by the “5th Dimension”? The fundamental problem is that nobody knows. Neither can we comprehend, from our three-dimensional world, what a fifth-dimensional world would look like or how it would function. Those who have listened to, and believed in, these channeled messages assume that existing in a 5-dimensional world is superior to living in a 3-dimensional world. But, how do we know? We don’t. We assume, without any kind of knowledge or understanding, that living in a 5-dimensional world is better than living in a 3-dimensional one.
Why would we assume this? Those who have channeled these messages have never explained what the implications of changing our world from 3 to 5 dimensions actually means. How will it change our lives? How will it change the planet? How will it change the solar system? To these questions no answers have been provided. However, the most important question of all is:
Can we, and the planet, survive in a 5 dimensional existence?
No answer to that question has ever been provided by those who propose that we shift to a 5th dimension. We have just assumed that it is possible. We will return to that question a little later.
Our solar system, and particularly the Earth, exists as a three dimensional, physical, reality. Let us pose a question:
What if we, humans, decided to “Ascend to the 5th Dimension” whilst the Earth decides that She wants to stay in Her three-dimensional, physical existence. What would happen to us? What would happen to the Earth?
After all, we have been Created with the absolute freedom to choose our path in life. If we decide to move on and the Earth does not, what would happen? That is a difficult question to answer as we do not have any awareness or experience of anything other than our three-dimensional physical world. This question has been considered by many scientists over the centuries and explored in many books and movies. So, here is one example of what could happen.
The TV series Star Trek: The Next Generation had an episode that explored this question. Captain Jon Luc-Picard [sic] and the crew of the Starship Enterprise were warping through the galaxy when the ship came to a sudden halt. The engines and all of the ship’s systems were working perfectly. They could detect nothing outside of the ship that could have stopped them and, yet, they were marooned in space. They fired one of their “probes” out into space to look at the ship from the outside but, could not see or detect anything. They could not move forwards or backwards nor could they move up or down…just locked into position without anything, apparently, stopping them. Eventually, they realised that the probe had filmed an extremely thin line, virtually undetectable, at the mid-line of the ship. What the ship had hit was a colony of beings that existed only in two dimensions. In other words, they had width and depth […] but, no height. The three-dimensional humans, and their three-dimensional technology, could not detect the existence of these beings and, the two dimensional beings could not perceive the three-dimensional ship.

A PDF Mini-Book From: The Chris Thomas Files
Over the past number of years, we have heard repeated claims, by channeled means, that there [have] been several wars, fought across several galaxies, by various “Alien” races. These wars, ultimately resulting in humans being dumped on the Earth, which has acted as a “prison” for us ever since, [implied] that humans have no place being on Earth but, should be repatriated to their “original home world”…usually via a “5th dimension”. Not one of these stories is correct and, yet, so many people have fallen for them. However, it is becoming more and more clear that a “War” is being fought. […] this is not a war between various alien races but, by the Velon against themselves. The purpose of this “War” being, to determine which of the Velon races controls the Earth and turns humanity or, what will be left of it, into a slave race. Despite the Velon aim, it is humans who are allowing this to happen…not only allowing it but, encouraging and supporting this war.
I have described the Velon many times in my books, articles and essays, so, I am not going to explain them, again, here, in any great detail. The Velon are one of the original seven semi-physical races who originate in a solar system they call “Velos”. Velos is located in a galaxy that is thirty-two galaxies distant from ours and is located behind the constellation of Sagittarius. Their solar system has two suns and eight planets. Three planets orbit around one sun whilst four planets orbit around the other. The eighth planet orbits around both suns and takes approximately 3,600 years in so doing. The solar system is peopled by a race who calls themselves Velon. The reason for the name Velon, and the solar system being called Velos, is because the primary solar system consciousness calls itself Velus (there is a secondary solar system consciousness but, I have been unable to determine what it calls itself).
The Velon peoples have divided themselves up into six races or factions. These divisions are along the lines of we on Earth calling ourselves German or Dutch or Mexican, etc…, or humans calling themselves Buddhist or Jewish or Zoroastrian, etc… The Velon have divided themselves up into races that call themselves:
These divisions within the Velon seem to follow along religious lines although their ideology behind these divisions is not very clear. Approximately 300 years ago, Velus had some kind of revelatory moment and decided that the whole of the Velon race should move to Earth (see Universal Soul, Human Soul, Project Human Extinction and The Annunaki Plan? or The Human Plan?).
Under the direction of Velus, the Velon began to build massive ships that could travel the distance between their home galaxy and ours. These ships were huge “ark” ships in that they could carry up to 900,000 Velon in each ship. Each of the six Velon races devised their own strategies for travelling here and each of the six races built their own ships. Also, each of the six Velon races began to develop plans for how they could be the first to claim the Earth, and our solar system, for their own. When these numerous ships arrived just outside of our solar system, they came to a halt as they realised that the Earth was already inhabited. With this realisation, each of the races began to devise new strategies for taking control of the Earth and removing the vast majority of humans off the planet. Their plans also included the removal of virtually all living things off the planet in the same way as they have done on their home planets. So, how have the Velon races, or factions, set about removing humans from the Earth? In studying the Earth, and humans, each of the Velon races made use of Velon technology.
[Note: The technology employed by all of the semi-physical races is primarily energetic in nature. In other words, their technologies are not “physical” in the way that we would understand it but, comprised of energy patterns that fall outside the range of human senses for us to even realise that there is anything there.]
The main forms of technology that the Velon used on humans amount to “spying” devices. These were implanted into humans without their knowledge or their consent. In doing this, the Velon broke the only Universal “law” that exists:
All souls have absolute freedom of choice to choose their actions. What cannot be done is for a soul to act in such a way that removes the freedom of choice of another soul to act freely.
These energy “implants” are also the source of the huge belief that “alien” races always implant humans. This is not true. The only race that has ever implanted humans with any kind of device are the Velon. Where people have claimed that they have removed physical implants (such as ones made of metal or plastic), these are false, or at least man-made, rather than of “alien” origin and the claims are deliberately intended to mislead…a form of disinformation. All of the so-called “alien” races are semi-physical in nature and, therefore, do not use or even manufacture devices that are physical. To us, all alien artifacts would be made of energy and this energy is of frequencies that are outside of the range of human senses. In other words, if you can physically pick up an alien artifact or even x-ray it, it isn’t an alien artifact.
So, roughly three hundred years ago, the Velon arrived en masse at the external boundaries of our solar system.

A Blog Post From: The Chris Thomas Files
I don’t know about you but, I like looking at sunsets. It doesn’t seem to matter how bad a day it has been for me, or for anyone else on the planet, taking a few minutes at the end of the day to watch the sun drop below the horizon just calms the nerves and renews my sense of well-being. During August, I have paid particular attention to the sunsets, attempting to catch a glimpse of the “new sun”, the one we are assured is called “Nibiru” that has been travelling through our solar system dragging its seven planets along with it. As I sit at my keyboard, I realise that I am, actually, sitting at my keyboard. I am not sitting at another keyboard in some alternate universe. I have not been vapourised by the bow “shock-wave” that this sun Nibiru was reputedly pushing before it, destroying all life in the solar system. Funny that. But, on the other hand, it looks as though the HGF (Human Gullibility Factor) has been working overtime.
For several months, we have been warned by those who claim to have insider knowledge from the NSA, CIA, NASA, and the Vatican, telling us that Nibiru is on its way through our solar system, wreaking its destruction, despite any evidence that could support these claims. Oh, how I long for the time when humans finally wake up and re-integrate their souls back into their bodies because, then, we wouldn’t have to put up with any more of this c**p.
A History of Nibiru
The name Nibiru is most usually associated with the translations of the Annunaki material by Zecharia Sitchin. Sitchin was acknowledged as the world’s leading expert at translating ancient Sumerian “Cuneiform” writing into English. In the 1960’s, Sitchin began translating a collection of clay tablets that were reputed to be about 5,000 years old. These tablets state that the story they tell was dictated to a Sumerian scribe who, accurately, recorded the story being dictated to him.
*Note: The story was dictated to a scribe, therefore, it had to be dictated by “someone”. This someone is never identified in the story the clay tablets tell. If, as claimed in the story, the information was the actual history of humanity, then, the history would have been recorded as it happened. In other words, the history was common knowledge amongst all of the people. So, why was it necessary for a story to be dictated to a scribe? The answer is, that, it is just that…a story and not reality.*
I have commented on the lack of truth, and the lack of validity, of this dictated story many times in my books and essays, so, [I] am not going to repeat the story here. Enough to say is, that it is a complete fantasy, deliberately designed to mislead people in the current times into believing that our “creators” are an alien race, known as the “Velon”. Within this dictated fantasy story is the “legend” of the planet Nibiru. Please note the word planet. The Velon/Annunaki fantasy story claims that Nibiru is a “travelling” planet that enters our solar system every 3,600 years.
Several of its orbits have caused problems within our solar system, destroying one planet with the Earth and, the asteroid belt being made from the debris of this collision. According to Sitchin’s translations and calculations, the last time that this fictitious planet entered our solar system was about 2,200 years ago (about 200 BC). This means that the next orbit is not due for another 1,400 years from now.
Are there any human traditions that have a record of a “travelling planet”? No, there are not. Chinese records, Egyptian records, Celtic traditions, Native American traditions, Aboriginal traditions, Inuit traditions, Eskimo traditions…not one of them tell of a planet that travels in and out of our solar system. Is there an ancient Earth people who speak of a planet called Nibiru? Yes, there is. This is the ancient Assyrian Empire centered around the ancient city of Babylon. Except, as far as the ancient Assyrians are concerned, the name Nibiru was their name for the planet Jupiter in our own solar system although the Assyrians possibly spelled it “Neberu”, meaning “The Ferry”.
However, the fear-mongering that has been going on over the past few years, especially in recent months, refer to a sun called Nibiru that has entered our solar system, destroying all in its advance. Quite why Nibiru had changed from a single “travelling planet” to a sun with seven orbiting planets has been impossible to track down. There does not appear to be any reason, whatsoever, to explain why Nibiru has changed from a single planet to a whole solar system…at least none that I have been able to find. The only explanation seems to be that a fictitious travelling whole solar system engenders far more fear in people than a fictitious single travelling planet does.
Why Try To Make People Afraid?
For the last 1,700 years, there have been those on the planet who see themselves as an “elite”. In order to control the population and to make them believe what this elite wants them to believe, the elite have found that, by far, the best way is to make people afraid. By creating situations of fear, especially the fear of things that do not exist, the elite have created a society that is made up of individuals that are extremely gullible and can be forced to act in ways which go against their intrinsic nature. There are many, many examples of this behavior throughout human history, both in the past and in the present.

A Blog Post From: The Chris Thomas Files
The Galaxy Song 
Whenever life gets you down, Mrs. Brown
And, things seem hard or tough
And, people are stupid, obnoxious or daft
And, feel that you’ve had quite enough
Just remember that you’re standing on a planet
That’s evolving and revolving at nine hundred miles an hour
It’s orbiting at ninety miles a second, so it’s reckoned
A sun that is the source of all our power
The sun, and you and me, and all the stars that we can see
Are moving at a million miles a day
In an outer spiral arm at forty thousand miles an hour
Of the galaxy we call the Milky Way
Our galaxy, itself, contains a hundred billion stars
It’s a hundred thousand light years side to side
It bulges in the middle to sixteen light years thick
But, out by us it’s just three thousand light years wide
We’re thirty thousand light years from galactic central point
We go ’round every two hundred million years
And, our galaxy is only one of millions and billions
In this amazing and expanding universe
The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding
In all of the directions it can whizz
As fast as it can go, the speed of light you know
Twelve million miles a minute
And, that’s the fastest speed there is
So remember, when you’re feeling very small and insecure
How amazingly unlikely is your birth
And, pray that there is intelligent life somewhere out in space
Because, there’s bugger all down here on Earth
I have included Eric Idle’s Galaxy Song for the same reasons that I used it as the frontispiece for The Human Soul, published back in 2007. The reason is to show, in a non-serious way, how little we really understand about our Universe, our solar system, the Earth and ourselves. Humans have become so focused down onto the minutiae of our day-to-day lives that we forget that we have a greater purpose beyond being a “wage slave”. The other main problem we seem to have developed over the past few years is that we only see the world around us in very small “bites”…if it isn’t immediately in front of us on our computer screen, we don’t consider it and, as soon as we change the website, we have forgotten what we read on the last web page. We seem to have forgotten all about context and history.
Mr. Idle’s little ditty also highlights another problem we have. We see ourselves as being very small and this makes us insecure. Added to which are the determined efforts by the “Elite” to keep us in a permanent state of fear so that we only think about our lives in reference to whatever is currently making us afraid. Given that we do not understand who, and what, we actually are, how we are deliberately kept in a state of fear and, we do not remember what our true place is within this Universe, is it any wonder that people have begun to look for help from beings, and places, beyond our solar system?
The line in the song: “And pray that there is intelligent life somewhere out in space…” seems to have caught a great many people’s interest and, they are looking to other races to come in and save them from themselves. However, the Velon, and all of their misleading disguises, should not be seen as being “intelligent life”. If we properly understood ourselves, and our place in current Universal history, we would know, absolutely, that we have all of the information and the tools we need already with us here on Earth. We already have everything we need to solve our problems as part of our fundamental make up. We have just forgotten that we are so much more than we have been propagandised into believing.
The Situation Since 1996
December 21st 2012 was a critical day in a series of recent critical days that began in 1996. To try and re-tell our history, as recorded in the Akashic, at this point, would be pointless. This is fully covered in my books. But, some historic connections need to be made in order to explain the significance of 1996 and the critical days that followed up to the present. To understand the present, you have to place it into its historical context, otherwise, what is happening now cannot be understood properly.
The Earth revolves on its own axis. The Earth orbits around the Sun. The Sun travels around its own orbit, travelling at 200 Km/hr. On its orbit, the Sun travels through many regions of our galaxy and, every 26,250 years, the Sun aligns with the center of the galaxy. With this galactic alignment comes a new burst of energy that can be used to rejuvenate the energies within our solar system, if the planetary consciousnesses choose to so do. This 26,250 year cycle is the one referred to in the ancient calendar systems, the most well known of which is the Mayan Calendar.
We began to enter the central galactic energy stream a few years ago but, the energies, as far as their potential influence is concerned, reached its peak between the 29th of October 2011 and the 21st of December 2012. This is why these dates have significance. This is why human plans (The Human Plan) were timed to reach their conclusions at this time…to take maximum advantage of the fresh energies arriving from the galaxy center. This is the Mayan 6th Sun.

 The Galaxy Song was written by Eric Idle. Music by Eric Idle and John Du Prez. Taken from Monty Python’s film The Meaning of Life, I did attempt to contact Eric Idle, or his agents, to obtain copyright approval to reproduce the lyrics here but, unfortunately, I could not find any way of contacting him. The lyrics are available on many websites. You can also watch Eric Idle and the Monty Python team perform the song on YouTube.
An Article From: The Chris Thomas Files
21 December 2012 was a monumental date in human development and, human history, and yet, very little seemed to have happened. Since this date, it seems to be business as usual for the trans-national industries, Bilderbergers and Illuminati…all of these organisations pushing harder and harder for control over individual freedom and, the right of free speech. Secret agendas are being advanced and, anyone who becomes a “whistle-blower” is attacked and pilloried in the media. What should have happened on 21/12/12, is that humanity underwent a shift in levels of consciousness that would have swept away everything of the old, releasing us to begin a new future where everything would have been a new possibility, a new potential.
What actually happened was that most of the population of the Westernised world were misled and misdirected by a race of non-humans who have been in control of world and industry leaders for over 300 years.
This race of non-humans the Akashic Records calls “Velon” but, most people know them by different names. The Velon have divided themselves up into six “races”:
Anunnaki, Hathor, Johnaan, Jjundaa, Oa and Mila.
These race divisions amongst the Velon follow along similar lines to humans calling themselves Christian, Jewish, Muslim, etc…or German, Australian, Indian, etc… The Velon are what the Akashic describes as a “semiphysical” race in that they have a physical form and, a physical density but, exist at energy frequencies considerably outside of the human range of senses. Even if someone is psychic, it can be difficult to be able to “see” one of the semi-physical races (other races of this type are the Pleiadeans, Greys, Blues, etc…). 
The Velon have an intention towards the Earth that requires the removal of humanity and most other living things.
This might sound like the plot for a Sci-Fi “B” movie but, the Akashic records that the Velon see themselves as “God’s chosen people” who should be living on “God’s chosen planet”, namely, Earth. There appear to be a number of reasons why the Velon see themselves in this way and none of them are easy to explain.
Each of the six Velon races developed their own strategy to take control of events on Earth and find ways of misleading the human population into believing that we should leave the planet or “ascend” in some way. By far, the greatest impact on human life has been by the “primary” Velon, Velus. Velus could be described as the consciousness of the Velon solar system who took it upon himself to control human activities in a very direct way. This direct action [began] about 300 years ago.
In 1773, the international banker Mayer Amschel Rothschild proposed to a group of his closest friends that, if they pooled their resources together, they could control the world. This proposal was taken seriously and a man was found who could head the organisation that Rothschild proposed. This man was Adam Weishaupt who established the Order of the Illuminati on 1 May 1776. With the Illuminati in place, they began to form strategies for financial and political control and, this organisation came to the attention of Velus. Velus effectively took control of Weishaupt in a way that many would consider a “walk-in.” Velus has been in control of the Illuminati ever since. It is only in very recent years that Velus has been deposed and the Illuminati taken over by human politicians.
In 1782, at the Congress of Wilhelmsbad, the Illuminati took full control of the Ancient Order of Freemasons and have remained in full control ever since.2 From documents seized at the time, the stated aims of the Illuminati are:
The abolition of all ordered governments; the abolition of private property; the abolition of inheritance; the abolition of patriotism; the abolition of the family; the abolition of religion and the creation of a World Government. The first act brought about by the Illuminati was the French Revolution in 1789. When this failed, ten years later, they turned their sights on the newly formed independent country of the United States of America where the majority of the signatories of the American Constitution were Freemasons.
Over the intervening centuries, the Illuminati have gradually taken over control of many organisations, many governments and set up a “management level” commonly known as the Bilderberg Group. The Bilderbergers are a group of industrialists, media owners, statesmen, politicians and other advisors who meet every year to plan how to carry out the directives of the Illuminati. By controlling the media (television, radio, newspapers, magazines, books and the Internet), the Illuminati, through the Bilderberg Group, control the flow of information into the outside world. If they require to cover-up any event, they just don’t publish it…such as “Disclosure,” for example. If they want a politician out of office because they are no longer following the Illuminati line, they do so. If they want to appoint politicians to senior positions, even the leader of a country, they can do so regardless of so-called democratic elections.

 According to the Akashic, there are a total of thirteen races within the Universe. Six are of “nonphysical” origin. This means that they exist in a pure soul state without physical form or density. Ninety-nine point nine percent (99.9%) of the souls that are on Earth in human form are souls from one of these six races. These six races are so similar to each other that we do not have separate names for them. There are seven “semi-physical” races. These beings do have a physical form, and density, and see each other as being as solid as humans see each other. Their soul energy patterns, though, mean that if they travel to Earth, the chances are that we would not see them unless they chose to make themselves visible. The seven are:
Pleiadean, Sirian, Greys, Blues, Crystalline, Velon and NGC 584. Souls from these races make up less than one per cent of the humans on Earth. For more details about these races see my book Planet Earth: The Universe’s Experiment.

The Situation Post 21/12/12
Many people have asked me for an update of our situation following the passing of the 21st of December 2012 “deadline”. This essay is not intended to be a full update as not all of the information is yet available to carry out a full assessment of where we are and what exactly happened on the day. However, two things are already very clear:
 The reason for so few people undergoing soul re-integration is, as a result of, human lack of belief in themselves. I am not going to explore this aspect in full as this will be the subject of a future essay.
 Given that there were so few completions on that date, those who would re-shape the world into their view of a “New World Order” have stepped up their plans of moving people in directions that the NWO wish to go whilst totally ignoring the choices of the people.
It is this second situation that I would mainly like to explore in this essay and, in doing so, will highlight many of the reasons for the seeming “failure” of so many to re-integrate.
New World Order?
This is a term that has been used by most leading politicians, as well as many others, in recent years. However, not everybody is familiar with the term and certainly not with its implications. Think of Aldous Huxley’s [sic] novel “1984” [Note: George Orwell wrote 1984. Huxley wrote Brave New World, a very similar novel. Chris Thomas got his authors reversed. He was under enormous strain while writing in 2013. This is the last year he wrote anything.] and that will give you some idea of what the term “New World Order” means. Essentially, the plan is to create a one world government, a one world bank and a one world police force. A central government that rules the world and enforces its policies with a police force under its direct control.
Is this a bad thing? Well think about the governments we currently have. Are they honest? Do they carry out “the will of the people”? Do they treat all of their citizens equally? Most people would answer no to all of those questions. Imagine all of the political corruption there would be if there was only one world government. If you were a part of, or favoured by, that government, you would be allowed to get away with virtually anything. If you were not favoured by the government, you would be made to suffer or even be imprisoned.
There are far too many examples of these kinds of behaviour in the world today by individual governments. The only thing that holds back their, sometimes, extreme behaviour is the reactions of other individual governments. Without those individual governments expressing their views, the one world government could do as it pleases without hindrance. But, would this one world government actually be there to carry out the wishes of the electorate or would it be under the control of what has become known as “the industrial/military complex”?
At the time of writing, a bill is passing through the American government (Obama Administration) that has been written by the GMO company Monsanto. Known as the Monsanto Protection Act, it gives the company total immunity from all health and environmental controls that are currently in place in America. Monsanto are looking to be able to plant any genetically modified organism (GMO) anywhere it chooses on American soil with total immunity from any current or future environmental law. “Monsanto’s Law” has been passed by the American Congress and is headed towards the American Senate where it is anticipated it will pass without change.
Then, we have the situation in Guantanamo Bay prison. Both President GW Bush and President Obama have granted pardons to more than half of the prisoners held at Guantanamo as they have been proven to have no connections to any terrorist organisations. The Presidential Orders further state that the prisoners who have been granted pardons be repatriated to their home countries. The military controllers of Guantanamo have ignored both Presidents, locked down the prison, refused access to the prisoners’ legal representatives and stopped commercial flights into the area. The prisoners have responded by going on a hunger strike and this hunger strike has had a news blackout as it has not been reported in the western media.
We have all seen the recent banking situation in Cyprus. Due to EU and government policies, the banking system in Cyprus is in a state of dire collapse. The European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund have stepped in with a rescue package of measures. The first thing they did was to reduce the level of state benefits to pensioners, the disabled, etc…by twenty percent and halt the spending on government projects. They, then, close the banks, preventing people from accessing their own money. They insist on a one-off tax of ten percent of all the money individuals hold in their bank deposit accounts. When this causes riots, they modify this tax to taking ten percent but, could be up to eighty percent, of the accounts that hold more than one hundred thousand Euros. The Bank of Cyprus collapses because of the activities of the European Central Bank, International Monetary Fund and the Cyprus government and, who pays the price for it? Ordinary people who have tried to generate some savings against a rainy day. Most people now see this as the model for future bank bailouts.
We have already had situations where governments gave the banks many millions of tax payers’ money but, next time the banks deliberately mess up the economy, they will plunder our savings accounts. At the time of writing, I have heard strong rumours that the Canadian government is looking to pass a law that gives them the powers to act in the same way as the Cyprus government is acting when future problems arise in the banks in Canada. Imagine how safe your savings would be if there was only a one world bank?
