Is zero a number? Sounds like a simple enough question, but when posed to fellow ‘Undergrounders’ (members of our Underground Knowledge discussion group on Goodreads) it turns out to be quite complicated.

Keeping in mind ‘Undergrounders’ are global and from all walks of life, including professionals, academics and blue-collar workers, here’s a snapshot of what they think:

Lisa says: Historically it (zero) did not start out as a number, but as a placeholder (1, 10, 100, 1000, etc.) and to fill in empty columns. But as a human species, we like to complicate things…learning about stuff in more depth….science and shit….we are a bunch of crazies! Zero is not defined. Does it prove the presence of something? Does it prove the absence of something? In a mathematical problem, can you cancel out a zero?

Krishna says: …there r many anomalies in maths regarding 0…but if u see the decimal number system, it’s basically a set of repetitions… 00 to 09, then 10 to 19, and so on and if u see the next set, it’s 100,101,102……111,112……and so on… so here 0 is not treated as anything “special” but treated as other digits only…. so I think 0 is a number….

Harry says: It (zero) existed way before decimal systems. Babylonians (Mayans etc.) first had the concept of zero… “It began to take shape as a number, rather than a punctuation mark between numbers, in India in the fifth century A.D.,” says Robert Kaplan, author of The Nothing That Is: A Natural History of Zero.

Masi says: Zero does have a value, it’s nothing. and it could be expressed as a word, symbol, or figure… (and) Less than zero just means it’s not a whole number, but less than it but it still has value.

James says: Ok, I’ve been converted to The Way of Zero. And fight all those (like Lisa!) who imply Zero is just nothing and not worthy 🙂 Acknowledge equal mathematical rights for Zero! Say no to mathematical discrimination! Yes 9 and 8 are the elite, but zero is a ground hero, forming a grassroots movement…trying to help those less even privileged like -1, -2, -3 etc.

Krishna says: Yes! Zero is our hero!

James says: Krishna, you now belong to the Way of Zero. Here we believe nothing is not nothing. Even if you have nothing, deep down you still got something and therefore you’re a Zero Hero 🙂

Harry says: If we’re actually in a matrix, then zeroes and ones were here long before anything else…. 🙂

Tim says: Zero is represented by a circle that symbolically means nothing, yet, because a circle has no beginning or end, it is eternal. Also, the planets in the sola system are round and are in permanent cycles of the sun and often each other… The circle, or zero, is profound me thinks… 🙂 I love this stuff…

Masi asks: Is infinity a variable? (I’m just asking random questions to make this go somewhere).

James says: This is the zero (nothing) thread, so why does nothing need to go somewhere, Masi?

Lisa says: With zero, the devil is in the details….hence Zero is not really a number, but the name given the very first eternal multiversal being….you can argue both for and against it and be right and wrong all at the same time… It is time to revise the First Law of Thermodynamics. Empty space is full of atoms and therefore DOES NOT consist of nothing.

Tim says: I think zero is an aspect of truth, thus its value is incalculable…

James says: Here’s a song about zero by the little known 1980s Scottish indie rock band TV21 https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=-htBdwn

The Orphan Conspiracies: 29 Conspiracy Theories from The Orphan Trilogy

Here for your reading pleasure is the foreword from The Orphan Conspiracies – the non-fiction book that inspired the formation of our Underground Knowledge discussion group on Goodreads. It (the foreword) was written by Dr. Takaaki Musha, former senior research scientist at Japan’s Technical Research and Development Institute of the Ministry of Defense, and a leading voice in space exploration.

The Orphan Conspiracies: 29 Conspiracy Theories from The Orphan Trilogy, by James Morcan & Lance Morcan, contains hard-to-find knowledge. This book is based on the political, scientific and financial insights contained in the Morcans’ bestselling international thriller series The Orphan Trilogy.

Throughout The Orphan Trilogy, James & Lance merge fact with fiction by incorporating real-world theories on known individuals and organizations. Now, with this non-fiction companion volume, they provide detailed analysis for each one of those controversial theories.

In many ways, this exhaustively-researched book is the secret history of the 20th Century and the early 21st Century. But more than a history lesson, it also discloses exactly what is happening right now behind the scenes – in underground bunkers, in the corridors of power, in prime banks and meetings of the global elite.

Currently, the world is in a desperate state due to environmental pollution, depletion of natural resources and food supplies, and economic inequalities. To solve these problems and to reach the next level of Mankind, a “new innovation of technology” is required. But nowadays innovative technologies such as cold fusion, and radical energy sources, including sonoluminescent-triggered fusion and anti-gravitational propulsion, are either being withheld or blocked by governments, old-fashioned science academia and multinational corporations.

I believe that the Big-Bang Theory and the Evolution Theory, as well as Einstein’s Special Relativity Theory which does not allow for the existence of faster-than-light (superluminal) phenomena, all have flaws in them and must be replaced by new theories that can give Mankind a more concise view of our Universe. But the fact is exceptional discoveries and theories that challenge official science have been ignored by the Establishment for decades.

I was employed for many years as a senior research scientist developing naval underwater weapon systems at the Technical Research and Development Institute of the Ministry of Defense, Japan, and I often suspected there existed extraordinary technologies developed by the world’s superpowers. I am of the opinion that most of these technologies have been concealed from the public’s eyes.

The world’s governments have many classified layers and outsiders rarely gain access to their hidden secrets. And certainly no common man can get confirmation of the existence of exotic technologies.

I was also part of a team of scientists in the Advanced Space Propulsion Investigation Committee (ASPIC), which was organized by the Japan Society for Aeronautical and Space Sciences in 1994. ASPIC’s purpose was to study all kinds of non-chemical space propulsion systems instead of conventional rocket systems for space missions to nearby planets, the Moon and the outer Solar System. This included field propulsion systems which utilize zero-point energy, the electro-gravitic effect and the non-Newtonian gravitic effect predicted in Einstein’s Theory of Gravity.

During my time with ASPIC, I strongly felt that some of the gravity control systems could have been realized, or had already been realized, but were being overshadowed by existing science. Such radical space technologies never reach the public because unknown groups do not wish humanity to have access to the highest knowledge or the most advanced scientific inventions. Perhaps this suppression is out of fear that the masses may be able to explore our Solar System and the Universe beyond it.

Whatever the case, it seems they want us to stay at ignorant levels forever.

This book is also about the purposeful bankrupting of nations around the world, the inherently corrupt monetary system and the scam of modern banking – all of which have obviously become major vices of our era. I believe that financial domination is one of the main methods used to enslave the people of this world.

I expect readers of this book will be surprised by the level of knowledge imparted in its pages, especially with its revelations of exotic technologies, financial injustices, political deceptions and suppressed scientific discoveries. I also expect readers will be inspired by the lifting of the veil that occurs when long-guarded information is absorbed.

Lastly, I sincerely hope that the publication of this book contributes to a global awakening which assists the future creation of new scientific theories and technologies – including space propulsion systems – that are not currently on the mainstream scientific agenda.

-Dr. Takaaki Musha, Director of the Advanced-Science Technology Research Organization (Japan); Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Space Exploration (Mehta Press); Former senior research scientist at the Technical Research and Development Institute of the Ministry of Defense, Japan.

Our definition of the term “underground knowledge” essentially covers details and concepts and little-known events that are usually not reported in the Mainstream Media (MSM), or if they are mentioned by MSM they are underreported for various reasons. Likewise, underground knowledge is usually not taught at universities in history courses or other academic fields, or if it is it’s often whizzed over (e.g. the radical science of Nikola Tesla is briefly taught at universities of the world but not in any great detail compared to say the more mainstream and agreed-upon science of Newton and Einstein).

Keep in mind knowledge is not simply facts – it’s also theories. For example, one could study in detail an economic theory from the 1950s which economists now universally agree and have proven to be an incorrect or impossible theory. However, studying such disproven theories is still just as much knowledge as studying anything else. Equally, one could study the history of famous lies told or grand hoaxes (all shown to be not factual) and knowing these historical details would also amount to a form of knowledge. Therefore, many topics covered in our books, by their very nature will and must go beyond facts and explore various theories in order to cover all possible angles…angles that are not covered by MSM or mainstream academia.
