Kasskaran: Sunken Land of the Hopi Ancestors

In a subsequent account I will continue with White Bear’s story, introducing the word Inioma ,  a term White Bear uses to describe a certain “quality” of spaceflight. Perhaps readers can help solve the mystery of Inioma.  What does he mean when he says one does not “fall off”?

White Bear on “flying shields” (spacecraft): 

“‘Because of this form we also call it a ‘flying shield’. I will tell you what it resembles; If one divides a calabash (a type of gourd) in two, one obtains a form with the aspect of a saucer. If one assembles two of these, one obtains the shape of the vessel, which they used formerly to go to these planets. When one sits inside, one can move the craft in all the directions and one does not fall off regardless of speed. Because of this form we call it Inioma,’  he said.”

EI_Seven_MoaiIn a subsequent story White Bear will explain how these seven “moai” on  Easter Island relate to Kasskara.

Yonaguni_Monument_DSC02867_(12737281133)The Japanese island of Yonaguni, located about a hundred kilometers east of Taiwan, seems to support White Bear’s narrative. Although White Bear didn’t specifically mention Yonaguni, which only came to light after White Bear died in the 1990s, he did say that Kasskara extended to areas now part of the island chain called Japan.

Cliff PalaceAnazazi ruins, Mesa Verde, Colorado USA

These are the so-called “cliff dwellings” of the Anazazi–Hopi relatives–at Mesa Verde, Colorado (currently a national park). To my ear and sensibilities, the term “cliff dwelling” carries within it the notion that these people were holed up, like wasps in a mud nest, since they were so primitive. That wasn’t my impression.  After initial astonishment at the sheer size and location of the site, I realized that when new, and pit fires were warming the stone inside apartments and kivas, it would have been a comfortable,  safe and stunningly beautiful place to live. It’s more impressive than any of the crappy apartment complexes I’ve ever lived in, it was rent-free, and consider the view!

White Bear, Henry Denny and I visited Mesa Verde together in 1977. We overheard a National Park Service ranger or guide earnestly telling people this and that about the ruins. White Bear scoffed (to us, jokingly and politely) and with a slight wave of his hand told us what the guide said was just wrong!

Hopi_Keyhole Door

I recall it had to do with the “keyhole door” shape characteristic of Anasazi architecture (top left is clear example). The guide was confidently telling a large group of tourists that the reason the Anasazi used that shape was to make it easier for the endemically arthritic Anasazi to enter and exit buildings. Considering that two of the keyhole doors shown above are too high for that purpose, White Bear’s claim that they represent “The Nine Worlds” sounds more plausible.

I’ve always appreciated that serendipitous glimpse into the fallibility of “authority.”

Peace on Earth and Good Will!

‘A Skeleton Key to the Gemstone File’ Turns 40- The Sleuth Journal

November 24th, 2015
Comments Off on ‘A Skeleton Key to the Gemstone File’ Turns 40- The Sleuth Journal

 Is this Eugene Brading’s ‘X-marked hatband’? (‘A Skeleton Key to the Gemstone File’ (p. 5) In 1975 an extraordinary document surfaced called “A Skeleton Key to the Gemstone File.” Distributed hand-to-hand long before the advent of computer-based social media, the 22-page typed copy I received in 1976 had been reproduced so many times that several words and letters were unclear or missing. Evidently a fervent underground effort had been underway to get this information out. So I’ve kept a copy of the Skeleton Key around for the last four decades taking notes on developments, and recent history, so far, has increased my confidence in the document’s veracity.

Study Suggests Conspiracy Theorists Are More Positive & Reasonable Compared To Conventional Thinkers

January 18th, 2015

illum

Here’s one that should make JREF* devotees froth at the mouth! We at The Swill Bucket generally keep comments closed to avoid cognitive infiltrators–and sesquipedalian misanthropes–but we thought it would be compassionate (even humorous) to give JREF advocates a chance to vent and hurl crude epithets at the authors –or people and ideas associated with them–in JREFrs’ distinct style of rabid verbal attack they somehow equate with intellectual discourse. However, I expect your typical JREF adherent won’t make it past the first paragraph anyway.

Study Suggests Conspiracy Theorists Are More Positive & Reasonable Compared To Conventional Thinkers

“A case study examining online commenting trends was performed by psychologists Michael J. Wood and Karen M. Douglas of the University of Kent that revealed so called 「conspiracy theorists」 are actually more reasonable & sensible than those who are considered conventionalists.

Not that long ago, practically anyone who thought outside of the box, questioned the official stories, or did any type of investigation into certain subjects was labeled a ‘conspiracy theorist.’ In fact, many of these people, including the majority of the writers here at Collective Evolution, are still considered conspiracy theorists by many even though the goal is simply to examine or verify the truth of something.”

VETERAN PLEADS: DO NOT BLINDLY SACRIFICE YOUR LIFE FOR YOUR COUNTRY! Author Publishes WWII Pilot Father’s Legacy and Warning

SACRAMENTO, CA, USA, October 19, 2014 /EINPresswire.com/ — SACRAMENTO, 19 October, 2014—The belief that it’s noble to support the nation’s military regardless of circumstances will perhaps always prevail. It’s a seductive patriotic ideal, but over the course of our nation’s history, the US military has been increasingly used to protect the interests of the rich and powerful rather than liberty and justice for all. Journalist Shawn Hamilton has written his new book, Be All You Can Be, as a wake-up call to the nation, using his WWII veteran father’s story as the revelry bugle.

A person who is willing to sacrifice his life ‘for his country’ is merely a dupe in the profit game of the military-industrial complex.”

— Major Ralph E.   Hamilton, 1976

A Kriegie’s Prayer –Ralph Hamilton

March 30th, 2014
Comments Off on A Kriegie’s Prayer –Ralph Hamilton

Oh, God, I ask of you in humble prayer,

As I lie in torment far from home,

Keep safe my loving family over there;

Make lighter theirs—this burden

Which they bear.

I ask not why this plan for war was lain,

Nor question your divine authority,

But couldn’t you have had the flak refrain

That last time I went down to

Strafe a train?

Oh, God, just slightly overflow thy cup,

And speed me from this vermin-prison’s bed.

Please, God, release me from

This land of Krupp

Before these God-damned bedbugs eat me up!

Note: Ralph wrote this under a dim night light, on toilet paper in the German prison camp at Moosburg. He said the bedbugs had chewed his wrists, neck, and ankles to a “painful mass of itching misery” and forced him from his bunk.
