The devastating tsunami created December 26, 2004 by a magnitude 9.0
earthquake that killed more than 300,000 people on the shores of the
Indian Ocean caught the world off guard.
It was the largest earthquake since the
Good Friday Earthquake off Alaska in 1964, and ties
for fourth largest since 1900.
The earthquake that struck the Indonesian island of Sumatra occurred
in a location geologists know is susceptible to powerful
earthquakes. The quake occurred along a "subduction zone," in which
the Indian tectonic plate is being subducted, or pulled beneath, the
Burma tectonic platelet. The overlying plate jumped upward more than
4.5 meters, lifting the water above it and setting off the tsunami.
For some, the finger of blame doesn't point squarely at nature but
at top secret military testing in the waters of the Indian Ocean.
The Egyptian weekly magazine Al-Osboa claimed the earthquake that
triggered the tsunami,
"was possibly" caused by an Indian nuclear
experiment in which "Israeli and American nuclear experts
An Australian researcher, Joe Vialls, in his article "Did New York Orchestrate
analyses how easy it would be to deliver,
"a multi-megaton thermonuclear
weapon to the bottom of the Sumatran Trench, and then detonate
it with awesome effect."
Days after the disaster, Canadian
Professor Michel Chossudovsky wrote an article titled "Foreknowledge
of A Natural Disaster: Washington was aware that a deadly Tidal Wave
was building up in the Indian Ocean".
"the US Navy was fully aware of the
deadly tidal wave, because the Navy was on the Pacific Warning
Centre's list of contacts.
Moreover, America's strategic Naval
base on the island of Diego Garcia had also been notified.
Although directly in the path of the tidal wave, the Diego
Garcia military base reported 'no damage'."
"With modern communications, the information of an impending
disaster could have been sent around the world in a matter of
minutes, by email, by telephone, by fax, not to mention by live
satellite television," he adds.
Others see the catastrophe as a 'sign of
the times' in which we live, and a portent of what is to come as the
Earth and humanity experience even more changes as part of the end
of a world cycle.
Natural earthquakes are caused by the movement of tectonic plates
over the Earth's mantle.
Sandwiched between Earth's crust and
molten outer core, the vast mantle accounts for 83 percent of the
planet's volume. It is filled with solid rock but, heated by the
core and by its own radioactive decay, it circulates like a pot of
That circulation is the driving force behind the
surface motion of tectonic plates, which builds mountains and causes
The destructive power of an earthquake comes from the momentum
gathered when two opposing "faults" or tectonic plates that may have
been locked together for decades, suddenly move apart.
The result is that solid rock which
normally moves only with the passing of geological ages accelerates
briefly to 8000 km/h, unleashing huge quantities of energy and
creating a shaking movement of up to a meter a second.
Most people consider earthquakes to be natural in origin, but what
if there was such a thing as man-made earthquakes? Well, there are...
There is the official
version of what constitutes a man-made earthquake, and then there is
a body of suppressed research pointing to a more insidious agenda.
Officially, there is an area of research devoted to man-made
Geologists and seismologists agree
earthquakes can be induced in five major ways:
fluid injection into
fluid extraction from the Earth
mining or quarrying
through the construction of dams
In fact, there are officially recorded instances of earthquakes
caused by human activity.
Geologists discovered that disposal of waste fluids by means of
injecting them deep into the Earth could trigger earthquakes after a
series of quakes in the Denver area occurred from 1962-1965; the
periods and amounts of injected waste coincided with the frequency
and magnitude of quakes in the Denver area.
The earthquakes were
triggered because the liquid, which was injected under very high
pressure, released stored strain energy in the rocks.
Man-made earthquakes may seem like something out of the X-Files, and
it's probably only a matter of time before the idea is picked up by
The plotline of
Hammer of Eden, written by
best-selling author Ken Follett, revolves around a terrorist group
threatening to level San Francisco with a man-made earthquake.
When asked by Salon magazine how
real is the idea of a man-made earthquake, Follett replied that,
"Some of the seismologists told me,
'There's no way this could happen.' But others gave sad little
shrugs and said, 'It's hard to say. Who knows? Maybe. It's
within the realm of possibly.'"
Research - Tesla Technologies
Born in Belgrade, Yugoslavia,
Nikola Tesla is one of the 20th
century's greatest scientists.
A prodigious inventor of electronic
devices and pioneer of free energy, Tesla never gained the
recognition he deserved because his scientific breakthroughs were
deemed too 'sensitive' by the corporate and government powers of the
In a book entitled
Tesla - The Lost Inventions, a
section is headed "Man-Made Earthquake":
Tesla was fascinated with the power of resonance and
experimented with it not only electrically but on the mechanical
plane as well.
In his Manhattan lab he built
mechanical vibrators and tested their powers. One experiment got
out of hand. To a steel pillar Tesla attached a powerful little
vibrator driven by compressed air. Leaving it there, he went
about his business.
Meanwhile, down the street, a
violent quaking built up, shaking down plaster, bursting
plumbing, cracking widows, and breaking heavy machinery off its
anchorages. Tesla’s vibrator had found the resonant frequency of
a deep sandy layer of subsoil beneath his building, setting up
Soon Tesla's own building began to
quake, and. just at the moment the police burst into the lab,
Tesla was seen smashing the device with a sledge hammer, the
only way he could promptly stop it.
In a similar experiment, on an evening walk through the city.
Tesla attached a battery-powered vibrator, described as being
the size of an alarm clock, to the steel framework of a building
under construction and. adjusting it to a suitable frequency,
set the structure into resonant vibration. The structure shook,
and so did the earth under his feet.
Later Tesla boasted that he could
shake down the Empire State Building with such a device, and, as
if this claim were not extravagant enough, he went on to state
that a large-scale resonant vibration was capable of "splitting
the Earth in half."
No details of Tesla's vibrators are available, but they probably
resembled one of Tesla's reciprocating engines (such as
Patent No. 511,916). These exploited the elasticity of
gases, just as his electrical vibrators, like the tesla coil,
exploit the elasticity of the electric medium.
It discloses Tesla's fascination with
the power of resonance and how he experimented with it not only
electrically but on the mechanical plane as well.
An article from the July 11, 1935 issue
of the New York American entitled 'Tesla's
Controlled Earthquakes', stated Tesla's,
"experiments in transmitting
mechanical vibrations through the Earth - called by him 'the art
of tele-geodynamics' - were roughly described by the scientists
as a sort of controlled earthquake."
The article quotes Tesla as saying:
The rhythmical vibrations pass
through the Earth with almost no loss of energy. It becomes
possible to convey mechanical effects to the greatest
terrestrial distances and produce all kinds of unique effects.
The invention could be used with destructive effect in war…
The January 1978 edition of Specula
magazine ran an article describing an incredibly profound
phenomenon that could be produced within the Earth by what is called
the 'Tesla Effect.'
According to the article, electromagnetic signals of certain
frequencies can be transmitted through the Earth to form standing
waves in the Earth itself.
In certain cases, coherence to this
standing wave can be induced wherein a fraction of the vast, surging
electromagnetic current of the Earth itself feeds into and augments
the induced standing wave.
In other words,
"much more energy is now present in
the standing wave than the… amount being fed in from the Earth's
By interferometer techniques, giant
standing waves can be combined to produce a focused beam of very
great energy. This can then be used to produce earthquakes induced
at distant aiming points.
Tesla expressed grave concerns about the effects of this technology
because it is exactly the type of thing that could easily get out of
control once it begins vibrating within the Earth - and it could
actually cause the Earth to vibrate to pieces.
Another leading Tesla researcher and nuclear engineer, Lt. Col.
Thomas Bearden, lecturing at a
Symposium of the US Psychotronics Association (USPA) in 1981,
Tesla found that he could set up
standing waves… in the Earth (the molten core), or, just set it
up through the rocks - the telluric activity in the rocks would
furnish activity into these waves and one would get more
potential energy in those waves than he put in.
He called the concept the
Magnifying Transmitter (TMT).
Bearden goes on to explain how TMTs
They will go through anything. What
you do is that you set up a standing wave through the Earth and
the molten core of the Earth begins to feed that wave (we are
talking Tesla now).
When you have that standing wave,
you have set up a triode. What you've done is that the molten
core of the Earth is feeding the energy and it's like your
signal - that you are putting in - is gating the grid of a
Then what you do is that you change
the frequency. If you change the frequency one way (start to
dephase it), you dump the energy up in the atmosphere beyond the
point on the other side of the Earth that you focused upon.
You start ionizing the air, you can
change the weather flow patterns (jet streams etc) - you can
change all that - if you dump it gradually, real gradually - you
influence the heck out of the weather. It's a great weather
machine. If you dump it sharply, you don't get little ionization
You will get flashes and fireballs
(plasma) that will come down on the surfaces of the Earth… you
can cause enormous weather changes over entire regions by
playing that thing back and forth.
HAARP - The
Pentagon's Ultimate Weapon
In an Arctic compound 450 kilometers east of Anchorage, Alaska, the
Pentagon has erected a powerful transmitter designed to beam more
than a gigawatt of energy into the upper reaches of the atmosphere.
Project HAARP (High-frequency Active Auroral Research
Program), the experiment involves the world's largest "ionospheric
heater," a device designed to zap the skies hundreds of
above the Earth with high-frequency radio waves.
Why irradiate the charged particles of the ionosphere (which when
energized by natural processes make up the lovely and famous
phenomenon known as the Northern Lights)?
According to the US Navy and Air Force,
co-sponsors of the project,
"to observe the complex natural
variations of Alaska's ionosphere."
As well, admit the Pentagon, to develop
new forms of communications and surveillance technologies to enable
the military to send signals to nuclear submarines and to peer deep
Ever since the existence of HAARP became public, a number of
independent researchers have warned the operation has a secret
HAARP transmissions may also be used for the detection and
monitoring of electromagnetic or "plasma" phenomena, precursors of
seismic activity and tectonic movement.
Researchers believe HAARP
transmissions are actually being used to activate or trigger exactly
the same electromagnetic conditions that can cause tectonic
Jerry Smith in his book
HAARP - The Ultimate Weapon of the Conspiracy,
warns many atmospheric scientists working on the secretive military
project might be unaware of HAARP's grave potential to wreak havoc
on the Earth.
If HAARP is a TMT [Tesla Magnifying
Transmitter], and these researchers correctly understand Tesla's
work, we could be in a lot of trouble. It is quite possible that
the scientists working on HAARP do not know what they are
Beyond that their ignorance might be
compounded if HAARP is indeed a secretive black-ops military
project. The military has devised a way of keeping secrets
called 'compartmentalization' where each unit knows only what it
needs to know…
Only the control group knows what's
If there is a control group familiar
with TMTs directing the actions of scientists unschooled in
Tesla technology, those lower level operatives could be directed
to wreak havoc with created weather or manufactured earthquakes…
The key technology behind HAARP is the
brainchild of scientist Bernard Eastlund.
Judging from his APTI patent, Tesla was
a major inspiration for Eastlund's ionospheric heater. A New York
Times story, dated December 8, 1915, describes one of Tesla's ideas
remarkably similar to Eastlund's.
In 1966, Professor Gordon J.F. MacDonald was associate
director of the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics at the
University of California, Los Angeles, a member of the US
President's Science Advisory Committee, and later a member of the US
President's Council on Environmental Quality.
He published papers on the use of environmental-control technologies
for military purposes.
MacDonald made a revealing comment:
"The key to geophysical warfare is
the identification of environmental instabilities to which the
addition of a small amount of energy would release vastly
greater amounts of energy."
World-renowned scientist MacDonald
developed ideas for using the environment as a weapon system and he
contributed to what was, at the time, only in the wildest dream of a
When he wrote his chapter, "How
to Wreck the Environment," for the book Unless Peace
Comes, he was not kidding around.
In it he describes the use of,
polar ice cap melting or
ozone depletion techniques
ocean wave control
brain wave manipulation using
the planet's energy fields
He speculated these types of weapons
would be developed and, when used, would be virtually undetectable
by their victims.
HAARP one such weapon?
In her book
Planet Earth: The Latest Weapon of War, renowned
scientist and nuclear activist Dr. Rosalie Bertell says such
"have the ability to transmit
explosive and other effects such as earthquake induction across
intercontinental distances to any selected target site on the
globe with force levels equivalent to major nuclear explosions."
Her book explains that pulsed, extremely
low frequency (ELF) waves can be used to convey mechanical effects
and vibrations at great distances through the Earth.
Such manipulation of the Earth, she states,
"has the capability to cause
disturbance of volcanoes and tectonic plates, which in turn,
have an effect on the weather," creating storms and torrential
rains over an area.
Anyone notice the world's weather has
been very strange in recent months?
On November 28, 2004, Reuters reported that during a three day span,
169 whales and dolphins beached themselves in Tasmania, an island
off the southern coast of mainland Australia.
The cause for these beachings is not
known, but Bob Brown, a senator in the Australian parliament,
said "sound bombing" or seismic tests of ocean floors to test for
oil and gas had been recently carried out near the sites of the
According to Jim Cummings of the Acoustic Ecology Institute,
seismic surveys utilizing air-guns have been taking place in
mineral-rich areas of the world's oceans since 1968. Among the areas
that have experienced the most intense survey activity are the North
Sea, the Beaufort Sea (off Alaska's North Slope), and the Gulf of
Mexico; areas around Australia and South America are also current
hotspots of activity.
The impulses created by the release of air from arrays of up to 24
air-guns create low frequency sound waves powerful enough to
penetrate up to 40km below the seafloor. The "source level" of these
sound waves is generally over 200dB (and often 230dB or more),
roughly comparable to a sound of at least 140-170dB in air.
According to the Australian Conservation Foundation, these 200dB -
230dB shots from the air-guns are fired every 10 seconds or so, from
10 meters below the surface, 24 hours a day, for 2 week periods of
time, weather permitting.
These types of tests are known to affect whales and dolphins, whose
acute hearing and use of sonar is very sensitive.
On December 24, 2004 there was a magnitude 8.1 earthquake more than
800 kilometers southeast of Tasmania near New Zealand, with a
subsequent aftershock 6.1 a little later in the morning that same
Then on December 26 the magnitude 9.0 earthquake struck leading to
the devastating tsunami that killed more than 300,000 people.
On December 27, 20 whales beached themselves 180 kilometers west of
Hobart on the southern island state of Tasmania.
Interestingly, the locations of the whale beachings over the
previous 30 days correlates with the same general area struck by the
8.1 Australian earthquake. The seismic testing also took place in
the same area. Then two days after the Australian tectonic plate
shifted, the 9.0 earthquake shook the coast of Indonesia.
There is strong evidence suggesting oil exploration activities have
induced earthquakes in the past, although a link is yet to be
established in this case.
A paper "Seismicity
in the Oil Field" by Russian academics admit,
"Scientists have observed that
earthquakes can be triggered by human action… Some
geophysicists, including the authors of this article, believe
that if the natural tectonic regime had been taken into account
during the planning of hydrocarbon recovery, the earthquakes
might have been avoided."
This is a sobering admission when we
consider that some geologists say the Australian quake was the
likely trigger for the Indonesian quake.
Sign of the Times?
The death and devastation caused by major earthquakes around the
world can only worsen in years to come, as growing urban development
and unprecedented population growth compound the lethal effects of
natural and, as some researchers claim, man-made seismic hazards.
With the world's population nearing an estimated 6.5 billion, there
are fewer unpopulated places for quakes to strike. And with ever
more people to accommodate, there is more multistoried construction
in vulnerable fault zones.
Frightening and controversial projects like HAARP, with applications
ranging from weather modification to mind control, should be of
great concern to us all. And most worrying is mounting evidence the
US military now has the ability to create earthquakes - the ultimate
weapon of war.
Was the earthquake of December 26 man-made or the result of natural
There are many who believe such events
are part of a cyclic period of earth changes. Strange weather
patterns, an increase in earthquake activity, and natural disasters
across the planet, are anticipated at the end of major world cycles.
Christians often call attention to the Gospel account where Jesus
says a sign of the end of the world age would be "earthquakes in
diverse places" (Matthew 24:7). Many believe this verse refers to
the times in which we live.
In traditional Hindu cosmology, we are now nearing the end of the
Kali Yuga which is the final and most negative of
cycles which are,
Similarly, the ancient Greeks traced the lineage of mankind through
five successive "ages" or "races" from the "Golden Age" to the
present "Iron Age."
The Visuddhimagga, a compendium of
Theravada Buddhist philosophy, gives further details about the
recurring cycles that destroy mankind and cleanse the Earth.
The text relates there are 64 world
destruction cycles in which the world perishes seven times by fire,
and an eighth time by water. This cycle of eight destructions
repeats itself seven times, and then at the end of the eighth cycle
the final destruction is by wind rather than water. Then the cycle
of 64 begins anew.
Man's most ancient traditions tell us these cycles reflect the
creative process of the cosmos.
The memories of a lost 'Golden Age',
found in all earthly cultures, point to a time in the distant past
when harmony and balance prevailed. This harmony is upset during the
Iron Age, which is prophesied to end amid a proliferation of
inverted spiritual values and rampant materialism, accompanied by
devastating natural disturbances.
Act of man or act of nature, the recent earthquake and tsunami may
indeed be another 'sign of the times' signaling the last days of the
present world order.
We do well to recall the words of the
gifted French esotericist Rene Guenon:
This end only appears to be the "end
of the world," without any reservation or specification of any
kind, to those who see nothing beyond the limits of this
particular cycle;… the end now under consideration is undeniably
of considerably greater importance than many other, for it is
the end of a whole
Manvantara [world age]… this
end will itself immediately become the beginning of another
Manvantara… if one does not stop short of the most profound
order of reality, it can be said in all truth the "end of a
world" never is and never can be anything but the end of an
