Harvard Study Proves Unvaccinated Children Pose No Risk, However, Vaccinated Children Do



Tetyana Obukhanych proves unvaccinated children pose no risk


The immediate take home is that legistlating vaccination is ineffective and wrong headed.  Worse, the potential of a negative reaction is not low at all.  It easily approaches one percent and has included serious and permanent damage.  This is a risk that society itself cannot accept once understood.  And we have alternative strategies as well.
 
The commercial solution is a sedge hammer that maximizes profits and also produces maximum dangers.
 
It is also forgotten that the best defense against all disease happens to be excellent hygiene. That is what deserves maximum public investment.
 

Harvard Study Proves Unvaccinated Children Pose No Risk, However, Vaccinated Children Do

Immunologist destroys mandatory vaccine logic in open letter.

 http://www.australiannationalreview.com/harvard-study-proves-unvaccinated-children-pose-risk/

Dear Legislator:

My name is Tetyana Obukhanych.  I hold a PhD in Immunology.  I am writing this letter in the hope that it will correct several common misperceptions about vaccines in order to help you formulate a fair and balanced understanding that is supported by accepted vaccine theory and new scientific findings.

Do unvaccinated children pose a higher threat to the public than the vaccinated?

It is often stated that those who choose not to vaccinate their children for reasons of conscience endanger the rest of the public, and this is the rationale behind most of the legislation to end vaccine exemptions currently being considered by federal and state legislators country-wide.  You should be aware that the nature of protection afforded by many modern vaccines – and that includes most of the vaccines recommended by the CDC for children – is not consistent with such a statement.  I have outlined below the recommended vaccines that cannot prevent transmission of disease either because they are not designed to prevent the transmission of infection (rather, they are intended to prevent disease symptoms), or because they are for non-communicable diseases.  People who have not received the vaccines mentioned below pose no higher threat to the general public than those who have, implying that discrimination against non-immunized children in a public school setting may not be warranted.

 

IPV (inactivated poliovirus vaccine) cannot prevent transmission of poliovirus (see appendix for the scientific study, Item #1). Wild poliovirus has been non-existent in the USA for at least two decades. Even if wild poliovirus were to be re-imported by travel, vaccinating for polio with IPV cannot affect the safety of public spaces.  Please note that wild poliovirus eradication is attributed to the use of a different vaccine, OPV or oral poliovirus vaccine.  Despite being capable of preventing wild poliovirus transmission, use of OPV was phased out long ago in the USA and replaced with IPV due to safety concerns.

Tetanus is not a contagious disease, but rather acquired from deep-puncture wounds contaminated with C. tetani spores. Vaccinating for tetanus (via the DTaP combination vaccine) cannot alter the safety of public spaces; it is intended to render personal protection only.

While intended to prevent the disease-causing effects of the diphtheria toxin, the diphtheria toxoid vaccine (also contained in the DTaP vaccine) is not designed to prevent colonization and transmission of C. diphtheriae. Vaccinating for diphtheria cannot alter the safety of public spaces; it is likewise intended for personal protection only.

The acellular pertussis (aP) vaccine (the final element of the DTaP combined vaccine), now in use in the USA, replaced the whole cell pertussis vaccine in the late 1990s, which was followed by an unprecedented resurgence of whooping cough. An experiment with deliberate pertussis infection in primates revealed that the aP vaccine is not capable of preventing colonization and transmission of B. pertussis (see appendix for the scientific study, Item #2). The FDA has issued a warning regarding this crucial finding.[1]

Furthermore, the 2013 meeting of the Board of Scientific Counselors at the CDC revealed additional alarming data that pertussis variants (PRN-negative strains) currently circulating in the USA acquired a selective advantage to infect those who are up-to-date for their DTaP boosters (see appendix for the CDC document, Item #3), meaning that people who are up-to-date are more likely to be infected, and thus contagious, than people who are not vaccinated.

Among numerous types of H. influenzae, the Hib vaccine covers only type b. Despite its sole intention to reduce symptomatic and asymptomatic (disease-less) Hib carriage, the introduction of the Hib vaccine has inadvertently shifted strain dominance towards other types of H. influenzae (types a through f). These types have been causing invasive disease of high severity and increasing incidence in adults in the era of Hib vaccination of children (see appendix for the scientific study, Item #4).  The general population is more vulnerable to the invasive disease now than it was prior to the start of the Hib vaccination campaign.  Discriminating against children who are not vaccinated for Hib does not make any scientific sense in the era of non-type b H. influenzae disease.


Hepatitis B is a blood-borne virus. It does not spread in a community setting, especially among children who are unlikely to engage in high-risk behaviors, such as needle sharing or sex. Vaccinating children for hepatitis B cannot significantly alter the safety of public spaces.  Further, school admission is not prohibited for children who are chronic hepatitis B carriers.  To prohibit school admission for those who are simply unvaccinated – and do not even carry hepatitis B – would constitute unreasonable and illogical discrimination.

In summary, a person who is not vaccinated with IPV, DTaP, HepB, and Hib vaccines due to reasons of conscience poses no extra danger to the public than a person who is.  No discrimination is warranted.


How often do serious vaccine adverse events happen?


It is often stated that vaccination rarely leads to serious adverse events.  Unfortunately, this statement is not supported by science.  A recent study done in Ontario, Canada, established that vaccination actually leads to an emergency room visit for 1 in 168 children following their 12-month vaccination appointment and for 1 in 730 children following their 18-month vaccination appointment (see appendix for a scientific study, Item #5).


When the risk of an adverse event requiring an ER visit after well-baby vaccinations is demonstrably so high, vaccination must remain a choice for parents, who may understandably be unwilling to assume this immediate risk in order to protect their children from diseases that are generally considered mild or that their children may never be exposed to.


Can discrimination against families who oppose vaccines for reasons of conscience prevent future disease outbreaks of communicable viral diseases, such as measles?


Measles research scientists have for a long time been aware of the “measles paradox.” I quote from the article by Poland & Jacobson (1994) “Failure to Reach the Goal of Measles Elimination: Apparent Paradox of Measles Infections in Immunized Persons.” Arch Intern Med 154:1815-1820:


“The apparent paradox is that as measles immunization rates rise to high levels in a population, measles becomes a disease of immunized persons.”[2]


Further research determined that behind the “measles paradox” is a fraction of the population called low vaccine responders.  Low-responders are those who respond poorly to the first dose of the measles vaccine.  These individuals then mount a weak immune response to subsequent RE-vaccination and quickly return to the pool of “susceptibles’’ within 2-5 years, despite being fully vaccinated.[3]


Re-vaccination cannot correct low-responsiveness: it appears to be an immunogenetic trait.[4]  The proportion of low-responders among children was estimated to be 4.7% in the USA.[5]


Studies of measles outbreaks in Quebec, Canada, and China attest that outbreaks of measles still happen, even when vaccination compliance is in the highest bracket (95-97% or even 99%, see appendix for scientific studies, Items #6&7). This is because even in high vaccine responders, vaccine-induced antibodies wane over time.  Vaccine immunity does not equal life-long immunity acquired after natural exposure.


It has been documented that vaccinated persons who develop breakthrough measles are contagious.  In fact, two major measles outbreaks in 2011 (in Quebec, Canada, and in New York, NY) were re-imported by previously vaccinated individuals.[6]–[7]


Taken together, these data make it apparent that elimination of vaccine exemptions, currently only utilized by a small percentage of families anyway, will neither solve the problem of disease resurgence nor prevent re-importation and outbreaks of previously eliminated diseases.


Is discrimination against conscientious vaccine objectors the only practical solution?


The majority of measles cases in recent US outbreaks (including the recent Disneyland outbreak) are adults and very young babies, whereas, in the pre-vaccination era, measles occurred mainly between the ages 1 and 15.  Natural exposure to measles was followed by lifelong immunity from re-infection, whereas vaccine immunity wanes over time, leaving adults unprotected by their childhood shots.  Measles is more dangerous for infants and for adults than for school-aged children.


Despite high chances of exposure in the pre-vaccination era, measles practically never happened in babies much younger than one year of age due to the robust maternal immunity transfer mechanism.  The vulnerability of very young babies to measles today is the direct outcome of the prolonged mass vaccination campaign of the past, during which their mothers, themselves vaccinated in their childhood, were not able to experience measles naturally at a safe school age and establish the lifelong immunity that would also be transferred to their babies and protect them from measles for the first year of life.


Luckily, a therapeutic backup exists to mimic now-eroded maternal immunity.  Infants, as well as other vulnerable or immunocompromised individuals, are eligible to receive immunoglobulin, a potentially life-saving measure that supplies antibodies directed against the virus to prevent or ameliorate disease upon exposure (see appendix, Item #8).


In summary: 1) due to the properties of modern vaccines, non-vaccinated individuals pose no greater risk of transmission of polio, diphtheria, pertussis, and numerous non-type b H. influenza strains than vaccinated individuals do, non-vaccinated individuals pose virtually no danger of transmission of hepatitis B in a school setting, and tetanus is not transmissible at all; 2) there is a significantly elevated risk of emergency room visits after childhood vaccination appointments attesting that vaccination is  not risk-free; 3) outbreaks of measles cannot be entirely prevented even if we had nearly perfect vaccination compliance; and 4) an effective method of preventing measles and other viral diseases in vaccine-ineligible infants and the immunocompromised, immunoglobulin, is available for those who may be exposed to these diseases.


Taken together, these four facts make it clear that discrimination in a public school setting against children who are not vaccinated for reasons of conscience is completely unwarranted as the vaccine status of conscientious objectors poses no undue public health risk.

Studies Link Monsanto’s Glyphosate to Ocean Death
















I am going to go a lot further.  While blamed on excess nitrogen fertilizer, I suspect that the continental dead zones that have popped up come from Glyphosate.  I have already fingered it for two other continental problems.

1  Amphibian die off.
2  Drop in male fertility

Now we have:

3  Collapse of Great Barrier Reef.
4  Inshore dead zones and fishery collapses.

So prove me wrong children.  This is well enough supported by the meta statistics involved and must be carefully studied.  We really do not thrive on toxic jellyfish.

Studies Link Monsanto’s Glyphosate to Ocean Death 

March 29, 2017/in Blog /by Kathy J. Forti

http://www.trinfinity8.com/studies-link-monsantos-glyphosate-to-ocean-death/

If you find the Before and After pictures shocking, they were for me as well. In 2013, while snorkeling off Port Douglas on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, even the boat captain had a hard time finding any coral area that wasn’t bleached of all color with little to no visible marine life.

As a certified diver, who has dove many reefs, I was ready to see an incredible display of aquatic life. Everything looked absolutely dead.

“What happened?” I asked. The explanation back then was pollution. No one mentioned what exactly that “pollution” might be.

Today we are getting a much clearer picture, and it may mean throwing out what we’ve been programmed to believe about fossil fuels, CO2 emissions and global warming being the main culprit killing our oceans and planet. Now, according to research by the Marine Pollution Bulletin and others, we can add glyphosate, Monsanto’s Roundup Ready herbicide, to the top of the list.

Everything in the ocean relies on phytoplankton for their sole food source. That includes whales, reefs, sponges, coral, etc. Some fish rely on getting their phytoplankton needs met by feeding on other fish who feed off the plankton. Everything is interconnected. In the ocean, phytoplankton is as at the very top of the food chain. It’s paramount to survival.

Phytoplankton is a photosynthetic plant that basically amounts to ocean algae. Its biological processes are the same as land-based plants. Ocean and coral reef death can be traced to phytoplankton die-off, which has accelerated by 40 percent since the 1950’s. It wasn’t long before some researchers started asking: What new substance was introduced in the last 40 years that kills virtually all land-based plants? The answer: Glyphosate.

Coral reefs are largely plant life. Glyphosate is a plant-killer, designed to annihilate any life it comes in contact with that isn’t protected by genetic modification. Run-off from agricultural spraying of this weed killer goes into our rivers and is dumped into the ocean in less than 40 days. It maintains roughly 80% of its killing capacity.

The researchers found the most notable phytoplankton declines in waters near both poles, in the tropics, as well as in the open ocean. So basically, everywhere. Conventional science tells us that phytoplankton die-off is due to warmer waters from climate change. Then one has to ask oneself: Why is the die-off also occurring in the colder waters at the Arctic poles? Apparently temperature is not the determining factor, so there goes the global warming explanation.

Phytoplankton die-off eventually leads to ocean acidification. Some recent studies are showing that true to the interconnectedness of nature, ocean acidification may actually have a climatic effect of its own. While climate change and ocean acidification are parallel phenomena, there are also some cross-links enabling them to interact. Rising temperatures and changing seawater chemistry are known to have an impact on marine life, and some of those impacts could, in turn, cause rising air and sea temperatures. That’s why it’s called the climate system. When you affect one thing, other things change as well.

While phytoplankton is dying, so is the planet’s abundant marine life. Hundreds of Pacific salmon are disappearing at an alarming rate. Experts believe they are starving to death because the once flourishing plankton pastures have turned into lifeless deserts. This, in turn, could contribute to the increase in large-scale whale beachings and fish deaths seen in recent years.

Why is glyphosate’s run-off so deadly to our oceans? Glyphosate’s half-life, or the rate at which it breaks down, is dramatically longer in the ocean than in fresh water. This is because glyphosate is a salt and in the presence of ocean salts it acts as a preservative. Even worse, it gathers strength over time leading to massive plankton and aquatic die-off. Unfortunately, this news is not being reported.

The studies say: “The half-life for glyphosate at 25°C in low-light was 47 days, extending to 267 days in the dark at 25°C and 315 days in the dark at 31°C, which is the longest persistence reported for this herbicide.”

In soil, the chemical’s half-life is as quick as 5 days. In bog or fresh water, it’s 49 days. Since so many agricultural countries in the world use this dangerous herbicide, glyphosate is now being detected in a diversity of water bodies when samples are analyzed. However, most countries fail to include regular glyphosate-monitoring programs. Stand-alone analytical methods are often cost-prohibitive, resulting in a long-term deficiency in global datasets (Barceló and Hennion, 2003).

Australia uses Roundup Ready at a rate of 30 million pounds each year. The U.S. uses a staggering 180-185+ million pounds each year. Now imagine all the millions of pounds other countries use as well. Most of this ends up finding its way to our oceans.

So what if the whole global warming theory is backwards? What if burning fossil fuels isn’t the primary cause of climate change, but toxic chemicals ARE through a natural chain reaction? We’ve cut down on fuel emissions through the years, taxed and regulated use of these resources, but no one is seeing any real difference. In fact, it seems to be getting worse.

The oceans are trying to tell us something, if we would only listen. Oceans play an important role in keeping the Earth’s carbon cycle in balance. If we are killing off the oceans due to glyphosate run-off, which causes widespread plankton and aquatic death and ocean acidification, which causes the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to rise along with climate temperature, then perhaps a better solution can be offered. Place a worldwide ban on glyphosate and stop it from poisoning our Earth.

In 2015 Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer (glyphosate) was classified as “probably” carcinogenic in humans. This was affirmed by the World Health Organization’s (WHO) International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) after conducting a comprehensive review on the safety of this crop chemical. It only affirmed what independent science has been saying for years. It’s in our food, in our air, in our rivers and oceans—pretty much every where.

It’s becoming more and more evident that chemical companies are destroying our planet. It wasn’t until the mid 1970’s that Monsanto came out with glyphosate. By 1980 it had become the best-selling herbicide in the world. In the early 1990’s people really started noticing ecological changes in the Great Barrier Reef which stretches for over 1,400 miles off Queensland’s north-west coast. This reef was once home to 1,625 species of fish, 3,000 molluscs and 30 different types of whale and dolphin.

Leading environmental writer Rowan Jacobsen recently wrote: “The Great Barrier Reef of Australia passed away in 2016 after a long illness. It was 25 million years old.” Death by poisoning.

No ocean is immune and neither are we. Monsanto’s judgment time will come. I actively encourage all documentary producers and environmental writers and activists to start covering this disturbing topic. Life depends on it.

US Oil Production Makes Waves


 
 
What has well begun is the weaning of the world from all forms of fossil fuels.  US surge production has finally capped the market and that will not end soon.  After all we have another 2 million barrels behind pipeline construction contracts now freeing up.


As i have extensively posted, we know how to provide energy drawn directly from 'Dark Matter'  This can roll out virtually overnight.

Yet even without that our battery technology is ripe to provide a huge efficiency boost to all our energy use and will likely cut oil demand hugely on a global scale.
 
 
US Oil Production Makes Waves

By George Friedman and Jacob L. Shapiro


June 12, 2017


http://www.mauldineconomics.com/this-week-in-geopolitics/us-oil-production-makes-waves


There’s no end in sight to slumping oil prices—good news for consumers but a dire development for major oil producers like Saudi Arabia and Russia. And now, rising US oil production and exports are contributing to the slump.


Last week, oil prices reached new lows for 2017, with Brent crude dipping below $48 per barrel and West Texas Intermediate dipping below $46. The drop has been attributed to an unexpected increase in US crude inventories, which rose by 3.3 million barrels last week (according to the US Energy Information Administration), despite expectations that it would drop by 3.5 million barrels.


The rise in production is compounded by rising US oil exports, since the US lifted a 40-year ban on these exports in 2015. This led to modest increases in oil exports in 2016 but substantial increases so far in 2017. This is a key reason prices will remain low in the long term.
Ebbs and Flows in US Exports


It is worth remembering why the United States banned oil exports in 1975 (exceptions were allowed at the discretion of the president). 1970 set a record for the highest crude oil production in the US, though this record will likely be broken in the next two years. The US was producing a lot, but it was also consuming a lot, forcing it to import more from OPEC states, which produced about 55% of the world’s oil in 1973.


This meant that OPEC could essentially control prices. And after the US backed Israel in the 1973 Yom Kippur War, OPEC retaliated by raising oil prices. This created a fourfold jump in prices and a global oil shock. One of the many ways the US responded was the 1975 Energy Policy and Conservation Act. This was designed to decrease its reliance on imports by banning oil exports, ensuring US-produced oil would only be consumed domestically.

Fast-forward to today, and supply is no longer as big a concern. The US has weaned itself off foreign oil, partly through technologies like hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling. In 2013, the US started producing more oil than it imported, and it hasn’t looked back. US crude oil production has almost doubled since 2010 and is already surpassing forecasts for 2017. In late 2016, the US Energy Information Administration estimated that the United States would produce 8.7 million barrels per day on average in 2017. New estimates suggest it will produce 9.2 million barrels per day in 2017 and up to 10 million barrels per day in 2018.

But it’s not just the US production numbers that are making waves: It’s the spike in US crude oil exports. The US exported 830,000 barrels of crude per day in March, a whopping 64.2% increase year over year. In February, it exported 1.1 million barrels per day, a nearly 200% increase year over year. According to The Wall Street Journal, the February numbers are closer to the new norm, as it expects the US to export, on average, roughly 1 million barrels per day in 2017.
A Disaster for Oil Producers


This is a huge challenge for major oil producers, especially Saudi Arabia and Russia. In December 2016, OPEC and its oil-producing partners agreed to cut production by about 1.8 million barrels per day, or roughly 1.5% of global crude production at the time. OPEC, led by the Saudis, has largely made good on this pledge, reducing production by 1.1 million barrels per day in the first quarter of 2017. The Russians have played with the numbers cutting production compared with December 2016 levels but not in year-over-year terms.


The OPEC deal managed to stabilize oil prices around $50 per barrel, and last month the cuts were extended for another nine months. If it were still 1973, that might have caused a jump in oil prices. But in 2017, OPEC produces only about 40% of the global supply, and the US is among the top three producers in the world. The price of Brent crude spiked to $54.15 per barrel after the cuts were extended but has since dropped almost 12% and may continue to fall.




Click to enlarge


This means that even the combined forces of OPEC and non-OPEC producers can’t prop up oil prices unless they are willing to slash production more severely. It also means that there is enough oil on the market, partly from the US, to satisfy demand, even when major producers limit their supply. Maintaining prices at current levels is the best outcome these producers can hope for. But even this comes with the downside of losing market share to competitors, without getting oil prices back to the levels that Russia and Saudi Arabia would need to stabilize their economies.




Click to enlarge


When we discuss US power in the world, we often trot out a few key points: The US economy accounts for just under a quarter of global gross domestic product; it has a military force without peer in the world; and its economy is not dependent on exports. We can now add the following points to this list: The US is the third-largest oil producer in the world; it is less dependent on oil imports than at any point in the last 40 years; and it is stealing customers from Russia and Saudi Arabia even with prices as low as $50 per barrel. Even a few years ago, US shale producers would have found it hard to make a profit at that price, but they are succeeding at that now. Oil prices are going down, US oil exports are going up, and the ramifications will be global.

This short item so totally describes the pride of the stone mason and all that fits well into the time of the Bronze Age in particular when rock fitting became quite practical. 


Recall that prior to bronze stone saws, shaping required rock pounding.  This worked but was never easy.  Thus as in Peru only small and rare structures were assembled.

After the Bronze Age, we slowly transitioned to using various mortars and that finally produced cement.   Thus this item is surely Bronze Age.

CHAPTER TWENTY-SIX

FROM THE SCROLL OF SENMUT

The stonebearer measures the stone and it is trimmed and pushed into place. It is fitted and the overseer looks upon it and says, "This stone is well laid. It remains in its appointed place".

Beside it other stones are fitted and set, each according to its own shape and design, each has its own place and position. Then upon it are placed other stones and so it becomes concealed from sight in the foundations of the structure. The building rises, firm and strong, to become the dwelling place of a prince.

I am one of whom men say, "He establishes buildings which stand forever". I remember that stone deep below the ground in the base of the structure where no eye ever sees it. Men know it is there, it just remains in its place, fulfilling its appointed duty, a necessity for the upholding of the building.

What difference whether that stone be set upon the piimacle, shining in the sun, ever before the eyes of men, or hidden in the ground, unseen at the base? It does its duty by standing solidly in its rightful place and seeking not to change it.


I, who establish great buildings which will stand forever, remember that stone.

Comey testimony proves CNN and NYT guilty of “fake news”



 
In the end the whole Comey sideshow was absurd.  The only potential crime revealed is that Comey himself leaked his own report.  Huh?
 
Maybe it is time he just went away.
 
Yet we do confirm that the russian narritive was a pack of lies top to bottom. Yet the press has demanded he defend himself in this regard for what is how seven months, while the narrative was used to damage his and his associate's reputations.  Offensive?
 
 
Where and when do we draw the line?

Comey testimony proves CNN and NYT guilty of “fake news”

https://thehornnews.com/comey-testimony-proves-cnn-nyt-guilty-fake-news/

Ex-FBI Director James Comey testified Thursday regarding the FBI’s investigation — and he SLAMMED The New York Times and CNN for their false reports on the Russia investigation, calling them, “nonsense.”

CNN has been building up to Comey’s testimony as if it was the Super Bowl. Their website complete with a countdown clock and around the clock coverage.

But even all the bells and whistles couldn’t save them from rocking their own credibility.


CNN posted the article “Comey expected to refute Trump” Tuesday, in which they cite “a source” who informed them Comey would refute President Donald Trump’s claims that Comey never told the president he was not under FBI investigation.

But there’s one major problem: Comey did tell Trump he wasn’t under investigation, and he just admitted it.

When Comey released his prepared opening testimony Wednesday, it concluded that Comey decided with his FBI leadership team that he should tell the then President-elect he was not under investigation.

The testimony read, “During our one-on-one meeting at Trump Tower, based on President Elect Trump’s reaction to the briefing and without him directly asking the question, I offered that assurance.”

And the scrambling at CNN began. They quickly issued a redaction, complete with a headline change to the less punchy, “Comey unlikely to judge on obstruction.”

While they covered up their fake reporting after the truth was revealed, it’s proof that anonymous sources (and maybe CNN) cannot be trusted.

During the testimony, Comey addressed this misinformation and the danger it poses to the American people.

When asked by Sen. James Rich about a New York Times report alleging that members of President Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia using electronic surveillance, Comey destroyed their entire narrative.

“It was not true. The challenge, and I’m not picking on reporters, about writing stories about classified information is the people talking about it often don’t really know what’s going on, and those of us that actually know what’s going on are not talking about it.”


He continued, “We just leave it there, nonsense. But I can’t go on explaining why it’s nonsense.”
Comey was so upset by the false report, he went as far as to survey the intelligence committee to see if he was missing something.

But of course he wasn’t.

It was more fake news from The New York Times and CNN, misinforming the American people based on an anonymous sources, all to fit their anti-Trump narrative.

Tesla kills the duck with big batteries



 
 Without question, one of the surest ways to generate a massive leap in energy availability is to be able to store it easily.  This can be implemented at every turn of the grid right down to the household. There you draw off peak power to charge your car and replenish your household needs.


Now Musk is prepared to deliver at current pricing.  After that it is a case of walking prices down in order to create rapidly expanding demand.  It can be done once underway.

This has been a long time coming but doing it was obvious anywhere close to meaningful price point.
 
 
Tesla kills the duck with big batteries

One of the problems that comes from reliance on solar power is the “duck curve” where the solar panels produce more power than is needed during the day, and standby power is needed in the evening when demand is high and the sun goes down. The common solution has been to turn on natural gas “peaker” plants to produce power when the needed in those few hours. But in Southern California, a big natural gas leak turned into what Melissa called an epic ecological disaster, sending utilities searching for an alternative to gas.

One of those alternatives that people dreamed about just a few years ago was giant batteries, and Elon Musk promised that he would make them in his new Nevada factory. What is really astonishing is that in just three months, Tesla has delivered a giant battery farm with 396 stacks of batteries that can provide enough electricity to power 15,000 houses for four hours, about how long it takes to shave the peaks, to kill the duck.

Even the experts are shocked at the speed this is happening at: According to the New York Times,


“I had relatively limited expectations for the battery industry in advance of 2020,” said Michael J. Picker, president of the California Public Utilities Commission. “I thought that it would not really accelerate and begin to penetrate the electric grid or the transportation world for a while to come. Once again, technology is clearly moving faster than we can regulate.”

Natural gas peaker plants are expensive and controversial; you want them near the user, but the NIMBYs come out in force. Battery packs are much simpler, they are modular and they are scalable. According to Tesla Chief Technology Officer J.B. Straubel in Bloomberg,

“There were teams working out there 24 hours a day, living in construction trailers and doing the commissioning work at two in the morning,” Straubel said. “It feels like the kind of pace that we need to change the world.”

MIT Technology Review's Jamie Condliffe is a bit of a skeptic, noting that lithium batteries are expensive and that they degrade.


Tesla doesn’t say how many cycles that the batteries in its Powerpack systems, which make up the installation, can tolerate before they degrade and reach the end of their useful life. But like other lithium-ion batteries, it’s likely in the thousands—probably around 5,000, the same as its Powerwall units. That’s not bad in a domestic setting, but could be quickly devoured in a grid setting.

Others do not think this is too much of a problem, that battery prices will keep dropping, and that they will keep getting better.

This TreeHugger has been forced to eat a lot of words recently after complaining how net zero building and rooftop solar was going to create huge problems; I noted recently that Tesla’s power wall “is a real game-changer, that erases so many of the problems I have had with rooftop solar and its dependence on the grid, the whole duck curve thing, just gone.”

Now that they can replace expensive and controversial peaker plants with battery packs, the game changes again in favour of solar and wind. Straubel of Tesla is right- this will change the world.

This Study Uncovered Common Words That Appear to Have Survived from a Mother Language That Existed During the Last Ice Age

Ice Age People

 It is interesting that such a short list has been conserved so well.  And yes it is a natural hunter gatherer set as well.
 
Thus folks could meet and perhaps exchange goods.  The rest of language would be driven by almost random processes.
 
 
At least we have confirmed what is plausible as well.  Now i want to see now American languages all fit as well. .

We are all aware of similarities in words between different languages, and also how much some words vary between cultures separated both in time and location. Often it is the most common words in a language that retain a strong similarity to their origin languages: for instance, the English word brother and the French frère are derived from words in ancient languages: the Sanskrit bhrātr and the Latin frāter. It is obvious, therefore, that the distinctive sound of a word can remain associated with the same meaning for thousands of years. But how far back in time can we go to find common words?

A 2012 PNAS paper, "Ultraconserved words point to deep language ancestry across Eurasia", attempted to answer that question, with surprising results. Researchers noted that these early 'root words'...

...can be predicted from information independent of their sounds. We showed in a sample of Indo-European languages that the frequency with which a word is used in everyday speech, along with its part of speech, can predict how rapidly words evolve, with frequently used words on average retained for longer periods of time

We have recently extended this result to include speakers from the Uralic, Sino-Tibetan, Niger-Congo, Altaic, and Austronesian families, in addition to Indo-European, plus the isolate Basque and the Creole Tok Pisin. Even in languages as widely divergent as these, we found that a measure of the average frequency of use predicted rates of lexical replacement as estimated in the Indo-European languages.

The study uncovered 23 "ultraconserved words" that "point to deep language ancestry across Eurasia". How deep? This subset of words, the researchers believe, "have remained associated with their particular meanings independently in separate branches of this superfamily since the end of the last ice age."

The 23 words identified by researchers included obvious ones (in terms of common usage) - “I,” “we.” “who,” “not,” “that,” “mother,” "man" - but also less commonly used words today which nevertheless were likely very important some 15,000 years ago, such as "fire," "ashes,", “bark,” and "worm".

Researchers noted that their unique approach in predicting these words independently of their sound correspondences "dilutes the usual criticisms leveled at such long-range linguistic reconstructions, that proto-words are unreliable or inaccurate, or that apparent phonetic similarities among them reflect chance sound resemblances."

So if you're planning on time travel back to the end of the last Ice Age any time soon, it might be worth brushing up on those 23 words...

CHAPTER TWENTY-FIVE

Some Fragments from a Much Damaged Section Most of Which Has Been Destroyed

Fragment 1

O enfolded, sleeping soul, unaware of the life fountain within from which you may drink, unfeeling of the throbbing life all about us, now is your hour. Prepare yourself for the great awakening. The bright light of wisdom awaits to encircle you, as you stand before the awful door within the Sacred Temple of Mystery.

That the light of Truth may be a sure guide amidst the dark gloom of earthly life, a certain aid enabling you to find the way of your eternal spirit, you are not unknowing of your inner wisdom. It is the key to everlasting life in the glorious place beyond the Western veil.

0 live my soul, awaken, hear me. Let not my love and my sacrifice be in vain, let not all my hopes turn to dust within the tomb. Can love become soil and hope become sand? Never, for the grave is not the destination of the sublime attributes which eimoble the nature of man.

Man is as a flame burning in water, as it is written on the pillars without. His soul is as the rosebud awaiting the kiss of the sun to awaken it to bloom. His nature is as the day which is ever accompanied by the night.

Fragment 2

1 will praise The Nameless God who is The True God and The Knower of Every Name. Hail Great Overseer of Earth!

The high Heavens will hear the sound of my voice and its loudness shall ring across the widespread land. It shall resound throughout the Red Land. My song shall ride on the wings of the wind and my gladness shall whisper into the ear of the air. Hail Great Overseer of Earth!

I shall seek diligently for enlightenment and knowledge, that I may proclaim the ways of The True God among people, for they are mysterious ways not easily understood. Man wallows in a quicksand of ignorance, and only by extreme effort can he extricate himself Great Overseer, grant me the ability to understand. Hail Great Overseer of Earth!

I say to the people, "Declare The Great One to your children, to the high bom and to the lowly ones who dwell together under the same sun, to the generations as yet unborn. Sing songs that will echo down the corridors of time". Hail Great Overseer of Earth!

"Sing His praises with the birds of the air, tell of Him to the fishes in the waters, to the creatures which hide in the ground and to the things which walk and crawl above it". Hail Great Overseer of Earth!

"Declare Him unto all, for He is The God of All, He is The Great Compassionate One whose wrath declines with the setting sun and in the morning departs with the dawnlight mists". Hail Great Overseer of Earth!

Sometimes, in the lonely nightwatches, I wonder, have You turned Your face from me? What have I done that You are unresponsive? Have I ever lived otherwise than in accordance with Your word? O Great Overseer of Earth, what is Your will for me?

Fragment 3

O Great One, everlastingly considerate of our needs. Overseer and Taskmaster of mankind, look down upon us with compassion and lay not too great a burden upon us, your dutiful servants. Labour we must, for thus we prepare for a higher state of being, but bear with us, for sometimes we grow weary and falter at the task.



Here we have fallen victims of our own wiles, we have hopelessly snarled up the threads of our existence, so we know not how to loosen the knots we ourselves have tied and so free ourselves. We are entangled in a net of our own weaving. Let us, Your servants, look to You, The Great One, for aid. Our destinies are held in the hollow of your hands, while the future is visible to you as is writing upon an open scroll.

The Glorious Ones worship You with service and serve through following the words of guidance. Thus, the earthbound spirits worship You, the shades of the departed worship You and the whole of creation worships You.

We, Your servants, offer our continual and everlasting devotion to Your service. We are not as others, O Great One, for we know well that worship and devotion mean service and expended effort, not mere words and ritual.

Your spirit governs the breezes that comfort mankind. You send the fertilising rains, Your Spirit quickens the seed within the womb of Earth. The songs of the birds are inspired by the knowledge of You and the wild beasts rejoice in the sustenance provided.

You are The Universal Being, The Raincloud Overshadowing the Earth, The One Dwelling in the Cave of the Heart within all breathing creatures. You are The Weaver of the Warp and Woof of Life.

Fragment 4

I praise The One Who Eats Evil, The Disposer of Earthly Residue. He who sustains the devoted followers of The Deathless One in whom all merge on leaving the body. For the day comes when we discard all that is of Earth, when we recognise and realise that all remaining is the pure and sacred spirit, boundless and free as the winds.

I praise The One Who Eats Evil, The Disposer of Earthly Residue. He who sustains the devoted followers of The Deathless One; who is with us everywhere and in all things; in whom is all, though not Himself the all; who sees and hears all, who knows and understands all, but whom none tied to Earth can know; who projects His word of power, so that it is within all and holds all things together in stability.

I praise The One Who Eats Evil, The Disposer of Earthly Residue. He who sustains the devoted followers of The Deathless One; who created all things and thus became His Own Greater Self; who clothed Himself in the universe as with a garment.

Fragment 5

0 Great Spirit, I would see the vast face of the Earth as You behold it. I would know how the seed is quickened, so that it grows into the plant, and how the fowl comes forth from the egg. What is added to the egg to give it the power to reproduce life?

1 would touch Your Great Body bom of the breath from The Eternal Source and watch Your thoughts creating and moulding all things to shape step by step.

I would see the links of Heaven and Earth and rest one hand in each. I would see the thread that binds yesterday, today and tomorrow, so all are one and parts of the whole.

I would see the appointed place of every living man and understand why. I would see the purpose of every beast and every plant, every tree and every thing that flies and crawls.

I would know gladness with the children, as they play and go singing on the way to their places of instruction. I would watch birth and death and solve their mysteries. I would know the depths of hatred and the heights of love.

I would journey the adventurous path of love hand in hand with another. I would know its secret, its delights and their shadows, and the secrets of its silences.

I would know the beginning and the end, and understand what links them. I would see the chain of the years and the necklace of the days. I would know the purpose of it all. Then, knowing all these, I would know You at last, O Great Spirit!

Fragment 6

O True God, by whom the worthy are guided in all they undertake; who rises as a beacon in the darkness for the lowly. Grant us. Your servants who put their trust in You, strength to overcome all the doubts and uncertainties which rise in our hearts, as frightening shadows arise in the night. Let us sip the waters from the inexhaustible well of wisdom, that we may not move along false paths to encompass our own destruction.

For we cannot see the way in the enveloping darkness, and confusing voices shout this way or that way. We are bewildered, for we know not which one is right. Can there be so many ways?



We are not men of great learning or high position. We do not sit among princes, being among the lowhest in the land. Yet it is we who carry the burdens of the people, we feed the hungry and provide for the widow and orphan. Ours are the aching backs and weary feet, ours the naked body and empty bowl.

Those who are concerned with higher things sit at tables of plenty, those seemingly unworthy rejoice amid prosperity and plenty. Those who take are given more, while those who give are mocked.

We see these things and doubt enters our thoughts, we ask one another, "Why is this the order of things? Is it the will of our God? Then we seek for an answer in all sincerity and with productive effort, and The Great God Above All does not remain mute.

Fragment 7

O God, hear my prayer, for I have gone into the great recess within me and await a response from out of the enveloping silence and tranquillity. The restlessness and discontent of life I have left at the portal. I have closed the door to the outer things of life.

Give ear, O my soul, to the whispers from the silence. Close out the clamour of Earth and harken to the soft voice which echoes from the far reaches of eternity. Hear without ears the wordless voice of Truth. Close the eyes of the flesh, that the greater eye may see in the iimer darkness.

Enter into the inner temple and await the revelation of heavenly secrets. Shut out the clamouring senses that demand expression in sensual pleasures. Then, when all outer doors are closed and all inmer doors open, speak to me and I will hear your voice. Tell me the secrets of the ages, and my spirit will dwell in contentment for ever.

This alone 1 ask and no more, it is sufficient for one lifetime.

Fragment 8

O Great One on High, have pity on us, for we are hopelessly ensnared by our complete lack of things needed to sustain the body. Without sustenance our spirits are restless, our hearts cannot find peace. We do not desire fooUsh things, or pleasurable or vain things, but just the things without which we carmot live.

Though we lack all things we do not turn our faces from You, for we know well that in Your bounty all men are provided for and the Earth is full of richness. It is not You who take away the things needed to sustain our lives, but those made in our own likeness, our own brother men.

They deny meat to the hungry and drink to the thirsty, though they themselves are gorged to fullness and bloated with good things. Be merciful to them, instruct and enlighten them with Your chastising afflictions. Thus they may come to know that man needs man and each man is brother to all others.

Others have reaped where we have sown and others sleep where we have built, because of the statutes of men.

Therefore, mete out nought but justice, that we may be fed and clothed and have a place to rest our heads.

Fragment 9

O God, who teaches us in so many strange ways in this great place of instruction called Earth; who set us tasks to an end which we caimot foresee, and who tests us to measure our abilities and to try our courage and fidelity.

Instruct us, so we may better understand the bitter lessons which purge from our natures all which is unwholesome to the spirit. Strengthen us, so we may bear all things without complaint and conduct ourselves manfully under the strict discipline of this unique place of instruction. Open the-eyes of understanding within us, that we may benefit by every experience and not waste time bewailing our lot.

Tell us, so we may know. Instruct us in our duties in the battleline, so that when we are called upon to take our appointed place we shall not shirk the clash. Toughen us on the training ground of adversity, so that we may be stronger for the fray. When the day of battle comes upon us and cowards flee before the strength of our adversary, when the valiant ones kiss the dust at the portals of glory, let our place be where the battle rages most
fiercely and the blows fall the thickest.

If we faint, may we still remain faithful. If we are exhausted, may we remain dauntless. If our hour come and we fall before the onslaught, may it be with weapons in hand and face to the foe. We fight the fight where the victor can be the vanquished and the vanquished the victor, for here the fight is the end and not the victory. He who serves the end well justly claims the fruits of victory.

We cannot ask to win, but we can ask to* be made strong if we struggle for strength. We caimot ask to remain unhurt, but we do ask for courage. We caimot ask to be supported in weakness, but we can ask for the fortitude to endure. We stand firm-footed, grim- faced to the foe. The ranks of wickedness encompass us about, but we will surge forward with closed ranks, carrying all before us until we come to rest in the presence of victory.

O God, Supreme Among Spirits, watch over us in the struggle, for we are Your children.

Fragment 10

This is my prayer, O Great Spirit, accept my prayer. O Dweller in the Pure Region of Truth, hear me. O Great Fountain of Wisdom, hear me.

O Comforter and Companion of the Soul Silences, hear me. I, Your son, come into your presence with faith and humility.

Grant that my spirit be admitted into the Glorious Audience Chamber between the two regions.

I, Your son, come into Your presence with faith and humility. O Supreme Source of the form-holding rays, grant me a hearing. O Great One seated on The Celestial Throne behind The Great Solar Disk, hear me. All homage to you Great God, Master of the bodies of men. I, Your son, come into Your presence with faith and humility. My every thought and deed are dedicated to Your service. These things are written clearly in my heart and are not mere puffs of wind from my mouth.

Fragment 11

Lord of my heart, hear me now as I stand in communicating silence before the listening shrine. You are The Great One who existed before the upheaval of the mountains; who tore apart the land and waters in the infant years of man.

For in Your sight a thousand great years are as an hour in the heat of the day, or as a watch in the coolness of the night. You are The Timekeeper in Eternity and Warden of the Ages.

You reap men as com is reaped at the harvest and sweep them away as floodwaters cleanse the land. For man is like unto the grass of the field, in the morning it grows full of vigour, gaily bedecked with the gems of morning dew; in the eventide it is cut down, to wither in the night.

The day is not important if men live by the hour, fulfilling in each its appointed task.

Fragment 12

When the Dread Messenger calls for you, let him not find you ill-equipped and unprepared. In the final hour, which must surely come, there will be no opportunity for fine speech and nought can delay his imperious command. Then all the possessions you have cherished and stored will be as nought, and all you will be able to take with you will be that which you have fashioned within.

Do not be numbered among the foolish who say, 'Time enough, for I am yet young". Death claims the breast- child as well as the aged, and on this you should ponder. Consider well your future estate.

Here you are the architect of your future abode, the plans prepared here are carried out in another place. Earth is the place of sowing. Heaven is the place of reaping.

Here you are the sculptor who chisels the statue, the potter who fashions the pot, the woodworker who carves the pillar. What is there on Earth more deserving of your care and attention than your own future form and appearance?

Do you recklessly hew or wilfully cut? Do you heedlessly pound the pUable clay and carelessly fashion the unfired pot? Do you mix the colours with proper thought?

What manner of thing are you fashioning in this great workshop? A beauteous being arrayed in radiant splendour, or a hideously foul fiend which can do nought but squirm in the slime of its fitting abode?

Whom will you praise for your prudence or curse for your lack of foresight? Who can force you to deal tenderly and responsibly with the slumbering child of your own self? Or prevent you fi-om carelessly and wilfully shattering all hopes for its future wellbeing?

Fragment 13

Rejoice all cities beside the waters, be joyful all people in the land, for great things have come to pass. Behold, the foe is scattered in confusion, they are no more, they are eaten up, victory is with us.



All praise to our Commanding Lord. Hail The Great Leader, hail The Source of Power in the land, live for ever in glory. O Mighty Fighter, let us rest in the shade of Your greatness, let us dwell under Your shadow, under the protection of Your right arm.

You have given us that which we never thought to know again. Men sit in peace, speaking freely one with another. They walk abroad with light steps and their heads are held high. Men look their fellowmen in the eye and there is none to josde them. They are delivered from the shadow of fear, and confidence is renewed in them.

The fortresses are no longer overflowing with fighting men and all throughout the land no well is forbidden to the thirsty, all may drink freely where there is water. Men come and go across the wilderness, carrying the burdens of trade and none falls upon them to plunder. Men journey peacefully along the lonely roads and none waylays them to rob. Traders cross the barren places and are unmolested, none rises against them.

The bearers of messages no longer hasten about, pale of face and fi-ightened, they no longer carry doleful tidings, they no longer bear words of fear. Their coming no longer causes the knees to tremble and the stomachs to fall. Now the messengers loiter in shady places, remaining there until the nightwatch calls, for there is no urgency in the words they carry. The fighting men rest, their hazardous days have gone; the bow, the sword, the spear and the shield have been laid away in the weapon stores. Women walk freely, they talk gaily, for they are not overshadowed with fear, neither do they tremble for fear of molestation. The faces of the border guardians are no longer haggard with sleeplessness, nor are their eyes tired and strained with watchfulness.

Throughout the whole land there is content and tranquillity.

The herds are large and sleek, they are no longer tense and restless. The flocks graze contentedly in their green pastures. The fowls are no longer alert and noisy but squabble playfully, chasing one another through the dust.

The voices of men are no longer hoarsened with war cries, instead they can be heard singing as each goes about his appointed task. The doleful wailing of women who mourn their dead is no longer heard and widows no longer proclaim themselves. The husbandman sows contentedly, knowing that where he sows he shall also reap.

He no longer doubts that he will enjoy his own harvest.

The face of God is once more inclined favourably towards us, even the lesser gods look again upon the land with favour. The reign of Saku is over, he no longer overshadows the lives of men, all is well in the two lands.

Fragment 14

We praise our own God with joyous and grateful hearts. He has shown Himself among us. He will come again in His season, all is well with us. His desire brings forth the green growing things and the land is clothed in its gay mantle. His hand guides the stars. His mind contains all things that fly above the Earth and all things that walk and crawl upon its face.

We praise You, Great Eternal One whose forms are so many. We kiss the ground before You. All the sacred beings and sacred things men worship are but manifestations of their groping through the clouds of ignorance to understand You. Have pity on them, for they were bom into darkness and mysteries, but their hearts are good.

Each day You bring some new thing to the attention of men and place before them problems to unravel. The nature of men ever inclines them towards the path of ease and passiveness, therefore they tend to shun the things which are truly profitable. Therefore, deal with men in a manner best fitting for their progress towards Truth.

Fragment 15

Neither life nor love ends at the Grim Portal. The strength of the invisible bond between two souls binds them even after death. That which binds strongest of all is the love which is sincere, true and constant. Such love endures through tribulations and trials.

If one you love has departed through the Western Gates into the Great Halls of Eternity, then be comforted by the words of Truth. This you will then know: that the Guardian at the Grim Portal is no fearsome being but a compassionate attendant who tends you gently while asleep, until the morning of a more glorious day. Then you will be awakened to journey through a greater adventure with the companions of former times.



Fragment 16

In death you are greater than ever you were on Earth, for now the companionable spirits lament for your sake.
They strike their bare flesh for you and smite upon their forearms. They tear at their hair and cast dust on their
heads.



Yet if they be true to themselves, they are not cast down, they are not distressed. There is a voice speaking out of
the silence, saying, "If he goes he shall come, if he sleeps he shall awaken, and if he dies he shall live".
Can you be gone from us forever? No, you are not dead or lost unto us, unless by our ovm deeds we depart to
dwell in different regions.

I am not cast down. You are now in the Great Place beyond the everlasting stars. You have passed over the
horizon of immortality and now walk erect along the path of glory. May we meet there in days yet to come.
Hail O Glorious One!

Fragment 17

my side when I come before the Assessors, that when I hear the verdict I may not be alone. If my eyes cannot
see, then tell me of the balances, do they bear down in my favour?

0 Guardian God, lighten the darkness for me and deliver me from the meshes of the net woven by my own
deeds of wickedness and weakness. You are my strength and support, to You have I given my offerings. You I
have honoured above all.

There I may be in distress and have none to abide with me. I may have no comforter and may be alone, therefore
desert me not in my time of trial. Stand by my side, O Guardian God. If I am numbered among the distressed
ones, look upon me with compassion and mercy, and if I am deserted, then sustain me with water, bread and oil.

Fragment 18

1 sing words of glory unto my God who is the Great God Above All Gods, and the words which issue from my
mouth shall be exalted above all things. With them I will praise Him in the Sacred Place, in the silence of His
Hidden Sanctuary. They will glorify my God, so that His Majesty is not dishonoured and He is not deserted,
until the day when He shall be declared before all men.

With the ever loving thoughts of a devoted heart I praise Him. Even as the sun rises joyfully into the daysky, so
does my heart rise towards He who gives me life and renews it day by day.

He is Great, He is Mighty, He is Glorious. He made the great river to flow, that all men in the two lands might
be fed. It never wearies, it never ceases its onward flowing. It is everlastingly renewed.

Even as the great river flows steadily and strongly through the barren wilderness and bestows verdant life on its
way, so let the river of my life flow through the Earth and eat away the sands of wickedness.
Release me from my mortal fetters. Loosen the heavy covering of flesh which imprisons me, which restrains
me. Let me rise free into the glory above, as the falcon floats freely on the wing. Let not the melody of my song
be cut off while I sing, nor the story end before its completion.

Keep me, O my God, from the ways of darkness and let my spirit rejoice in the light of righteousness.

Glory to You, Great God, Lord of Truth, whose eternal throne is concealed behind man's limitations; who issued

the command that brought things into being; who made man so wonderfully that man himself cannot understand

his own nature; who hears with compassion the cry of the distressed and the moan of the captive.

All hail the everlasting spirit within, the real self, the seat of all thought inseparable from me. I am one who can

truly call bis soul everlasting, for I am one of the Awakened Ones, one of the few who have at long last attained

the Splendid Vision. I have seen the bright flash of Truth in the darkness of earthly existence, I am free, I am

illuminated.

I will sing, that you may be glorified in the solitudes of Your Hidden Places, where the eyes of the profane can
never penetrate, where few men come as Chosen Ones. There we will sing songs of yore. We will sing of Your
ways and of Your laws, which remain everlastingly unchangeable.

Fragment 19

Heaven and the many Heavens beyond Heaven, Earth and the many Earths beyond Earth are held in the
thoughts and power of God. They are as a monument to His everlasting glory. All things living that move and
breathe have their place in the abode of life. Man finds the greatest joy in the Eternal Halls, therefore set not
your heart on earthly possessions.

Here a man may desire life for a hundred years and may even attain it, but what benefit are the extended years to
him if they do not exalt the soul? There is a horror-haunted region of darkness, and whosoever rejects the



godward life on Earth will surely dwell therein. They will go down to partake of the nature of demons, down
into the darkness of delusion and doom.

The soul, without moving flies on wings swifter than thought. It stands behind and beyond the senses. It is the
Knower working within the things mat are known. The spirit of man is carried down the stream of action into
the ocean of life. The spirit is everlasting, it is near and it is far, it is in all and it contains all.
He who sees his own self in all things and all things in his own self is awakened. He is beyond delusion and
outside the reach of fiatile sorrow.

Fragment 20

I am Hahrew the Enlightened One, Hahrew the Twice Bom. Having crossed the dark waters myself, I carry the
others across. Being free from fear, I free others from fear. Being unrestricted, I ease the restriction of others.
Knowing the way, I show it to others. Having trodden the road, I now guide others along it. I am an Illuminated
One, the open of ear, the keen of eye. I am one who knows the Law, I am a keeper of ordinances.
I shall refresh all those whose bodies are bent with toil or sorrow. I shall come to the aid of those whose souls
are withered and distorted, and give them strengthening sustenance. I shall open the eyes of many who are
deluded in the heavy mists of threefold existence.

Hear me, all who toil under the yoke of ignorance, who labour under the clouds of despair. I am the
Forthcoming One, the Future One Turned Back. I am the Spirit Within The Law.

I am the Voice of EnKghtenment, one who proclaims the brotherhood of all men. I am to one as to another. I am
Hahrew.

Fragment 21

0 life-giving Sun, handwork of God, projection of divine fire, heat of Heaven, light of the day, solitary glory of
the daytime, let me behold the hidden form behind your brightness, for the spirit within you is even as my spirit.
Thus, I may come to understand the nature of my God who commands you and to whom I pray. The fair face of
the daughter of Truth remains hidden behind its mask of gold. O spirit of light, draw aside the veil even slightly,
that I may see.

Who among men is wise enough to know his own wrongdoing, or to see clearly his own errors and follies? The
eyes of men are dim and the road narrow, therefore it is not hard to wander fi-om the way. Therefore, O my God,
keep me from all hidden wrongdoing and errors, and keep me from the power of temptations to which I so
readily succumb.

1 know the rebellions of my heart, and my wickedness is ever before my eyes, yet how much more do I not see!
I have chafed against the restrictions of Your decrees and the Law. I am a foolish one who does himself an
injury.

I am ashamed and blush for my folly. I am as a man who, when his arm does wrong, cuts off a finger. Help to
make clean my heart and strengthen my spirit, that it may resist my own inflictions upon it. I believe I do right
and do wrong, for I have not listened carefully and diligently to Your words written on the sacred scrolls.
O my God, whom I have long worshipped with devotion, incline from the great heights of Your splendour and
stretch a helping hand down towards Your weary servant. Trusting in You I will depart from the pastures of
sweet grass and the calm waters of restful repose, and go into the presence of the Everlasting Lords. I will pass
out of the dark tomb, I will arise refreshed with the outpouring of Your Spirit. I will clasp Your mighty hand and
be guided along the path of Truth. Thus, I catmot stray and the lonely places will not claim me.
In confidence and trust I will take my place before the Court of Assessors. Guided by Your light I shall pass
safely by the Place of Darkness, and those who lurk shall do me no harm. My trust is in You and I will come
safely past the lurking ones. I shall be freed of all earthly weariness and my spirit shall shine forth in glory. I
will stand in the Place of Brightness, and the Glorious Ones will come bringing refreshing waters. I will not lack
sweet sustenance, and delicacies shall be poured forth for me in abundance.
