“I love dandelions. They make me feel like sunshine itself, and you will always see some creature resting on an open bloom, if you have a little patience to wait. This vital source for all emerging pollinators is a blast of uplifting yellow to brighten even the greyest of days. It stands tall and proud, unlike all the others opening and swaying in the breeze. The odd one out.”
~ Dara McAnulty, Diary of a Young Naturalist
This past weekend was the convergence of holidays spanning three Abrahamic religions — Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. It seems this occurs . . . every 33 years. (Uh oh, there is the 33 — once again.) April 15, 2022 was Good Friday, and also the first day of Passover, concordantly marking the time of Ramadan.
Amidst this concurrence of religious faiths, there have been seeds of doom and gloom wafting over the media airwaves. One alleged incident of doom this week occurred in the NYC subway. And what do you know? It was infused with the cryptic 33 (see here and here). Imagine that. Do you also see the 33 coding in this reported incident of gloom on April 16, 2022 at Columbiana Centre in Columbia, S.C.?
If the conniving, 33-obsessed controllers can ride the 33 this week (ostensibly, a time signaling religious faith and renewal), then, hey, why can’t we?! Perhaps there is an occulted hint in exploiting the vibrational template of 33, but for beneficent aims (?). While I surmise that occulted numbers — such as the 33 — can be utilized to manifest imprints of doom and gloom, I suggest that ordinary, well-intentioned individuals (including an ‘odd one out’ — such as myself) may also be able to access the natural vibration (an inherent, universal energetic template) of the 33, with which to harness and manifest intentions of bloom, as well as reckoning, restitution, and reciprocity.
Personally, I find my spiritual and energetic practice in Nature. I have faith in the inherent capabilities, genuine narrative, and grounding support of Nature. By incorporating and embodying its wholeness, I am able to join all of my disparate pieces, learning to be more patient, kind, humble, collaborative, and playful. Through this reciprocal relationship of mutual listening and experiencing, I learn my real story — as told through a life-giving woven tapestry to which I am authentically tethered and anchored.
On Friday, April 15, I spent the day with my dear friend, Alison McDowell. We trekked to Princeton, NJ — to the historic sites of the Delaware & Raritan (D&R) canal, Carnegie Lake (also called Lake Carnegie), and the Institute for Advanced Study — for a reflective and energy shifting journey.
In an uncanny twist of coincidence (particularly related to timing), this week also marked the filming of Christopher Nolan’s upcoming movie, “Oppenheimer.” Prior to our visit to the Institute for Advanced Study, it was reported that he was filming on-site. Readers may recall my March 2022 blog post featuring Nolan’s time-bending film, “Tenet.”
Please see here the video footage that Alison compassionately created and compiled, explaining the purpose of our trip. Accordingly, she demonstrated our sprightly (albeit quirky) style of rectification and transmutation; as we boldly, yet peacefully, asserted our non-consent to the attempted digital and mechanized takeover of humanity and Nature — originally evangelized in 1937 by H.G. Wells with his notion of the “World Brain” (and, subsequently, echoed in 1946 in The World Sensorium, by Oliver L. Reiser). Alison integrated lovely stated intentions that were shared with her prior to our various excursions in the Greater Princeton area.
In a nutshell, my research efforts over the past five years synchronously intersect with Alison’s. I suppose it is this convergent contemplation and non-consent of the counterfeit, digitalized (and militarized) global brain that has brought us together. [For a supplemental perspective on the world brain agenda, please review this very informative Twitter thread, in addition to this Twitter thread, and this highly astute analysis by Drew Hempel in 2003.] Thus, it seemed fitting to gather during a unique time of conflux — typically hallmarked by reflection, seasonal change, and energetic shifts — as well as to situate ourselves in a locale imprinted with a rich, interdisciplinary history of scientists working in enigmatic fields of study. It is our position that the outcome of some of these studies may possibly be leading us down the wrong path — away from our intrinsic connection to Mother Earth, and the intercommunication that we already embody and share.
Along our winding way, Alison and I took some photos (see here and here) — amongst the early spring perennials of daffodils, spring beauties, skunk cabbage, and of course, dandelions. A friendly frog kept us company on one of our jovial jaunts.
Alison and I set out to pollinate messages of love and peace, as humanity engages with an accelerating presence of AI and nano-neuro-electronics, aiming to hijack our innate sensory circuitry. Conjointly, we do not wish to transmit intimations of doom and gloom. By leaning away from warrior and victim mindsets (and what may have initially stemmed from anger and fear), we are attempting to lean into a more positive, emboldened, and transmutative engagement — as we face the ever-present influence of digital domination.
In unpacking the details of this overreaching cybernetic post-human agenda (actively exposing what is appearing before us — in nearly every sector of our lives), we are packing away our doubts and doom-infused fears.
Seeds of hope, empowerment, confluence, and clarity are blooming. May we ride the sacred vibes of spring; adapt and flow with the supple rhythm of water; and fertilize our faith in the natural progression of humanity.
[Writer’s Note: There were two additional site visits on our planned itinerary. I had to leave early to attend to my outdoor animals (I am on a homesteading schedule). Fortunately, Alison was able to complete the last legs of the journey. In the video I linked, you will see that she stopped at the historic site of Grovers Mill (famous for the hysteria-inducing radio broadcast of H.G. Wells’ “War of the Worlds,” which was adapted and presented by Orson Welles as a prank). Alison concluded the trip at the Princeton satellite branch of SRI International — organized around pioneering work in AI, robotics, electron microscopy, signals intelligence, and other advanced technologies. Significantly — prior to merging with SRI — this site was originally Sarnoff Corporation, which was a pivotal developer in electronic communications.]
Addendum (April 18, 2022): I offer a belated acknowledgment to Jennifer Lake. Her many years of diligent digging into the history of synthetic scientific domination intertwines serendipitously with the efforts of both Alison and myself. Recent e-mail exchanges among the three of us have proven fruitful and supportive. Most resonant with this post are her Timelines, that provide a helpful framework with which to better grasp the scope of influence in building the artificial structure of the world brain. Thank you so much, Sofia Smallstorm (another collegial powerhouse, whom I owe much overdue gratitude), for connecting us to this treasure trove.
