Hot topics being debated in our Underground Knowledge global discussion group on Goodreads this week include:

Childhood immunizations — Are vaccines for kids as safe as Big Pharma claims they are?

Nick says: “I’ve been vaccinated for a long time, but interestingly enough, in order to work in hospitals for my job, I need to have certifications of said “vaccines” or I’m not allowed to even be on campus! I’m doing just fine and everyone I know that has been vaccinated is fine too….my question is has anything changed in recent years regarding these vaccines? It seems that there is a higher incidence of Autism diagnosis now than ever(and I realize that it’s still relatively new when discussing disorders). I guess my point is this-it was never an issue when I was a kid, but it seems to be an incredibly hot debate now…what has changed?! Thoughts?”

Extensive biblical revisions made by the Romans

James says: “Here’s one author’s answer, coming from a mainstream Christian perspective, about their interpretation of the New Testament’s promise of an Afterlife and specifically its location: “Where is heaven? What is the location of heaven?”  https://www.gotquestions.org/where-is…  “Heaven is most certainly a real place. The Bible very definitely speaks of heaven’s existence—and access to heaven through faith in Jesus Christ—but there are no verses that give us a Mapquest-style location.”

The Psychology of Politicians and Government

Ian says: “It is an intriguing question. The ones I have met seem to have this delusion that they “know” what society needs, they have the gift of being able to convince people to do what they need doing, and they seem to have the gift of persuading people that they will help. In practice, with some exceptions, they really do very little themselves. There was an MP in my electorate once who was there once. After the obligatory introductory speech, he only spoke once more in his whole time there, and was ruled out of order by the speaker! Basically, a lot of them are little more than vote fodder.”

Dangerous drugs Big Pharma doesn’t want you to know about

Vera says: “There are so many cancer drugs out there and so much chemotherapy causing countless terrible side effects for patients. If we want to really help patients and save lives, the scientific community needs to become serious about cancer prevention! For example, did you guys know that a virus may cause breast cancer in as many as 40 percent of cases? Instead of throwing drugs and chemotherapy at patients, doctors and scientists could create a vaccine that targets this virus and actually prevents breast cancer. Check out this link to learn more about the virus: http://www.breasthealthandhealing.org…

Are aliens visiting Earth or not????

Christopher says: “Have I seen a UFO, yup. Have I encountered an alien face to face, probably. The memories are still fragmented. Are they real? As real as a heart attack. I’ve met people that were behind the scenes of a lot of weird stuff, met people that have seen what the government has and is doing with it. Roswell was the real deal, no question. You take someone’s first-hand experience and your beliefs have a starting point.” 

Is the brain the origin of our consciousness? OR is the brain merely a receiver?

Mahesh says: “The mind is different from consciousness, take this example, higher animals like human beings, dogs and cats will have minds, but the cells will not have minds. They will have consciousness. So, we can say that mind is the conglomeration of many cells, and each of them is having consciousness till it has the life. Life means an ability to produce energy to sustain and reproduce itself. Therefore, the mind is the combination of many cellular systems of consciousness.”

Finding (hiding) a cure for cancer

Laurette says: “If big Pharma is in the drivers seat most likely there will be no cure. I believe they know and understand much more than they allow to be public knowledge. How often we see that someone who is sick has a shopping bag full of pills. One pill creates a problem so another is given to treat that problem and so on and so forth. It is disgraceful considering the technology today and the many breakthrough’s in medical science. I believe the following article gives us something to think about. Out of fear those diagnosed with a disease swallow whatever the doctor orders and common sense is thrown out the window. I believe that many cures for many things are available if we don’t lose hope and have the courage to investigate. http://allnewspipeline.com/Holistic_D… “

CHANNELING: Real or Fake? An Alternative Explanation

Gary says: “I’ve been intrigued for years by the phenomenon known as channeling. I first became aware of this activity back in the 1970s with the publication of The Seth Material by Jane Roberts. The next popular channeler to hit the scene was J.Z. Knight, channeling the entity named Ramtha. Then came Lee Carroll’s Kryon. Soon there was Sheldon Nidle and the Galactic Federation of Light, Barbara Marciniac with the Pleiadians and Phyllis Schlemmer’s Council of Nine. Many more have followed in their wake, perhaps numbering in the hundreds just in America alone, although most of them are not as well known. I’ve attended four channeling sessions, by four different channelers, out of curiosity. What intrigued me about all of them, and about all channelers in general, is that it’s virtually impossible to know if they’re really channeling or if they’re faking it.”

In 2016, USAID (The United States Agency for International Development is the United States Government agency) reported that nearly 75 percent of all new, emerging, or re-emerging diseases affecting humans at the beginning of the 21st century are zoonotic (i.e. originated in animals).

There is talk among the scientific community that in the near future, humanity may face another Spanish Flu-level pandemic (the Spanish Flu H1N1 influenza virus killed 50-100 million in 1918 and infected 500 million worldwide)…or even something more extreme that threatens humanity’s survival.

Besides the Spanish Flu, the more recent history of pandemics, including and especially the H1N1 Swine Flu outbreak in 2009, inspired our new release novel Silent Fear (which goes on sale on Halloween on October 31: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B075HRYTVC/ ). We worked closely with a medical laboratory scientist/microbiologist to get all the medical aspects of the virus in our novel correct. And soon discovered microbiology is a fascinating, and sometimes scary, world underneath the surface…a place where viruses form at the micro level before sometimes spreading worldwide and threatening all of us.

SF Halloween poster

On the TheBlackVault.com website, in an article headed ‘USAID’s Pandemic Influenza and Other Emerging Threats (PIOET) Program‘, they mention: “Notable reminders of how vulnerable the increasingly interconnected world is to the global impact of new emergent diseases include HIV/AIDS, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), the H5N1 strain of avian influenza, and the 2009 pandemic H1N1 influenza virus. The speed with which these diseases can emerge and spread presents serious public health, economic, and development concerns.”

The article continues, mentioning how USAID’s “Pandemic Influenza and Other Emerging Threats (PIOET) Unit supports two major lines of work: H5N1 Avian Influenza, and Emerging Pandemic Threats. H5N1 Avian Influenza: Since 2005, USAID has strengthened the capacities of more than 50 countries for monitoring the spread of H5N1 avian influenza among wild bird populations, domestic poultry, and humans, to mount a rapid and effective containment of the virus when it is found, and to help countries prepare operational capacities in the event a pandemic capable virus emerges.”

So what’s looming in the world right now, virus wise?

Deadly Bird Flu In China Evolves, Spreads To New Regions http://www.npr.org/sections/goatsandsoda/2017/09/07/549069924/deadly-bird-flu-in-china-evolves-spreads-to-new-regions

This article mentions:

“This past year China had the largest outbreak of a deadly bird flu since the virus was first detected in March 2013.

For the past five years, China has had annual waves of H7N9 outbreaks that peak around January and February.

During the 2017 season, the country reported nearly the same number of cases as all four previous years combined, researchers at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report Thursday. The virus cropped up in more geographic regions. And it showed signs of evolving in ways that cause concern.

As NPR reported in April, the virus has picked up mutations that make it more deadly in poultry and less susceptible to antiviral treatments. “Our research shows it can kill all the chickens in our lab within 24 hours,” virologist Guan Yi told NPR.

H7N9 isn’t your run-of-the-mill bird flu. H7N9 is “the influenza virus with the highest potential pandemic risk,” the CDC writes in the journal Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.

In people, H7N9 can cause a severe form of pneumonia and progress into septic shock and multiorgan failure. “We know of only a small number of people who presented with influenza-like symptoms and then recovered without medical attention,” the World Health Organization says.

During the 2017 outbreak, the Chinese government reported 759 cases of H7N9. There were 281 deaths — about a third of those infected. By comparison in 2016 and 2015, the country reported 123 and 226 cases, respectively.”

But wait, there’s more…Oh no!

CNN: The big one is coming, and it’s going to be a flu pandemic https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2017/04/07/health/flu-pandemic-sanjay-gupta/index.html

Article Excerpts:
  • “Unlike seasonal flu, pandemics occur when a completely new or novel virus emerges
  • Gupta: Developing and deploying a pandemic flu vaccine just 24 weeks faster, would save many lives

(CNN)Experts say we are “due” for one. When it happens, they tell us, it will probably have a greater impact on humanity than anything else currently happening in the world.

And yet, like with most people, it is probably something you haven’t spent much time thinking about. After all, it is human nature to avoid being consumed by hypotheticals until they are staring us squarely in the face.

Such is the case with a highly lethal flu pandemic. And when it comes, it will affect every human alive today.

Pandemic flu is apolitical and does not discriminate between rich and poor. Geographical boundaries are meaningless, and it can circle the globe within hours. In terms of potential impact on mankind, the only thing that comes close is climate change. And, like climate change, pandemic flu is so vast, it can be challenging to wrap your head around it.

When most people hear “flu,” they typically think of seasonal flu. No doubt, seasonal flu can be deadly, especially for the very young and old, as well as those with compromised immune systems.

For most people, however, the seasonal flu virus, which mutates just a little bit every year, is not particularly severe because our immune systems have already probably seen a similar flu virus and thus know how to fight it. It’s called native immunity or protection, and almost all of us have some degree of it.

Babies are more vulnerable because they haven’t been exposed to the seasonal flu and older people because their immune systems may not be functioning as well.

Pandemic flu is a different animal, and you should understand the difference.

Panˈdemik/: pan means “all”; demic (or demographic) means “people.” It is well-named, because pandemic flu spreads easily throughout the world. Unlike seasonal flu, pandemics occur when a completely new or novel virus emerges. This sort of virus can emerge directly from animal reservoirs or be the result of a dramatic series of mutations — so-called reassortment events — in previously circulating viruses.

In either case, the result is something mankind has never seen before: a pathogen that can spread easily from person to defenseless person, our immune systems never primed to launch any sort of defense.”

 

Corona_Pilgrims_KSA

In our new release novel Silent Fear (A novel inspired by true crimes), we have created a fictional scenario inspired by this microbiology and worked closely with a scientist who guided us on our medical sub-plot. Within a murder investigation in a university for the Deaf in London, England, a deadly flu virus (H7N7) outbreak occurs, resulting in the university being quarantined from the outside world.

In the sealed-off university, we then explore in detail a chaotic virus management story where not only does the virus continue to infect more Deaf students and claim more lives, but a serial killer remains at large and terrorizes those who manage to survive the deadly virus.

And just today, in an unusual coincidence that sounds all too similar to Silent Fear, news has broken out in the last few hours that four hospital wards in the Devon, England have been forced to close due to an outbreak of the norovirus.

Wards closed as outbreak of norovirus confirmed at North Devon District Hospital http://www.devonlive.com/news/devon-news/wards-closed-outbreak-norovirus-confirmed-690373

13:26, 27 OCT 2017

ARTICLE EXCERPTS:

People are being asked not to visit the hospital if they have had, or been in contact with someone who has had, diarrhoea or vomiting in the last 48 hours, unless their visit is essential.

Four wards at North Devon District Hospital were forced to close due to an outbreak of the vomiting and diarrhoea bug norovirus.

Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust is asking people not to visit the hospital if they have had, or been in contact with someone who has had, diarrhoea or vomiting in the last 48 hours, unless their visit is essential.

Norovirus is a highly contagious gastro-intestinal virus, which causes diarrhoea and vomiting.

Following the spread of this virus in the North Devon community, there is an increase in patients being admitted to NDDH with norovirus.

There have been confirmed cases of norovirus at NDDH this week and four wards were closed to new admissions as a precautionary measure.

The Trust is asking people not to visit the hospital if they have had, or been in contact with someone who has had, diarrhoea or vomiting in the last 48 hours, unless their visit is essential.

When in hospital, people should keep their hands clean using soap and water or the gels provided, and encourage others to do the same.

James Morcan

The intriguing topic of underrated scientists has arisen in our Underground Knowledge group’s Fringe science discussion thread, on Goodreads, and members are pulling some interesting names out of the hat.

It started when the group’s co-founder James posted this:

Besides the great Nikola Tesla, here are some other scientists I think deserve more recognition…Please add any more names you feel have influenced our world, or who were ahead of their time and whose scientific ideas are now influencing our future.

Viktor Schauberger

Viktor Schauberger

Viktor Schauberger (30 June 1885 in Holzschlag, Upper Austria[1] – 25 September 1958 in Linz, Austria[1]) was an Austrian forest caretaker, naturalist, philosopher, inventor and biomimicry experimenter. Schauberger developed his own ideas based on what he observed in nature. In Implosion magazine, a magazine released by Schauberger’s family, he said that aeronautical and marine engineers had incorrectly designed the propeller.

Here’s a snapshot of members’ “underrated scientists” picks (abridged):

Buckminster Fuller (aka Richard Buckminster “Bucky” Fuller; July 12, 1895 – July 1, 1983)was an American architect, systems theorist, author, designer and inventor. Fuller published more than 30 books, coining or popularizing terms such as “Spaceship Earth”, ephemeralization, and synergetic. He also developed numerous inventions, mainly architectural designs, and popularized the widely known geodesic dome.

For the best scientist that hardly anyone has ever heard of (I would be extraordinarily surprised if anyone here has): F. E. Volochine. Now, confess – have you heard of him? Why? In 1925 he developed a theory to account for nuclear binding energies, based on magnetism. He predicted the neutron would have a spin of 1/2, and he predicted its magnetic moment quite accurately, and his bonding energies were extremely good, including the excited states.

Beyond Tesla: History’s Most Overlooked Scientists https://www.livescience.com/46723-mos…

Top 7 Most Underrated Scientists Ever http://www.debate.org/opinions/polls/…

Interesting that they have Maxwell as highly underrated. I always thought physicists everywhere really rate Maxwell, and Faraday got himself on an English banknote.

How about Benoit Mandelbrot, the creator of fractal geometry? The Fractalist: Memoir of a Scientific Maverick

I would add Kristian Birkeland. He was the first to recognize auroras as electrical currents in plasma.

*****************************************************

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.

 

Image result for zero

 

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

If science one day evolves to the point where extended life or immortality becomes an option, would you want to live for hundreds or thousands of years, or even forever? …That’s the question we’ve put to members of the Underground Knowledge discussion group in our latest poll on Goodreads.com  —

Image result for immortality

 

Early poll results show respondents are divided with 40% opting for Hell yeah! and 40% opting for Hell no! and 20% undecided.

Some of the comments make for interesting reading:

Hell No!!! I want another round to see what I can get up to next!

I’d like to be able choose when to die! Immortality would drive me mad but I like the thought of a brain transplant – get a nice new body when I need it 😉

No way! My great grandmother lived to 101, she had still walked everywhere and clear of mind, and she passed in her sleep…sounds great? Nope! Not according to my gran she said the last 20 years was the toughest even worse than living through the depression and 2 World Wars…

C’mon it’ll be fun! I mean, at least nobody will say the old cliche “life’s too short” anymore!

I don’t believe I’d like to live forever…I do think if reincarnation is the next step, I’d like to remember, and keep the wisdom gained in previous lives.

Immortality does indeed exist but not in this world. I wouldn’t want to live forever here.    

If I could live exactly how I’m living…..meaning, still eat, enjoy life, sleep, make love etc. Absolutely. No Zombie, Vampire etc type of living. And stay a certain age. Not too young, just right in age.
