I have been getting an extraordinary amount of emails regarding our model on Civil Unrest and how governments seem to be gearing up in accordance with our models. People are putting two and two together and assuming we are advising most major nations. Just as the NSA is monitoring the world, every intelligence agency from China to Russia pay close attention to our models. Whether they listen to them or just want to know what it has to say is another question I doubt they would ever answer.
That is their job. I first began to notice their use in the early 1980s. We were advising a big grain company in Geneva and the requests for forecasts on things other than agriculture were growing exponentially. I went to lunch with the head of one of the big Swiss banks and asked him about the firm and as a matter of fact he said they were a front for the KGB. In 1998, when our model accurately predicted the fall of Russia, the CIA came and said they were pulling back the veil to communicate directly. Former staff have written about that and told their stories to the press and others over that affair.
One of the reasons I gave up personal funds management and went to only public funds and institutions was because you could never know who your client was. I thought I was managing money for a Saudi and it turned out to be Muammar al-Gaddafi of Libya. After closing that account, we found others. Then to top it off, we thought we were dealing with the European NOGA Hilton chain and found there was a silent partnership of again Gaddafi, Adnan Khashoggi (b 1935) the famous Saudi arms dealer, and Ferdinand Marcos, Sr. (1917– 1989) . Simply put, nobody was whoever you thought they were. That is why I turned to public corporations. Behind the curtain they all are aware of cycles. You have to be prejudiced, blind, and stubborn to deny their existence. Even Margaret Thatcher had the guts to speak at out conference advocating cycles.(Lady Thatcher’s Address MP3).
In the real world behind the curtain they are not so prejudiced. If it works – hell they will use it and could care less about the theory. In 1995 the CIA declassified a top-secret program known as Stargate Project that had been training individuals in the esoteric science of ‘Remote Viewing’ in which, it was claimed, people were able to envision ongoing activities in distant places and future events. The same people who will never believe in cycles would not believe in anything out side of the mainstream and are drones that follow the crowd rejecting original thought.
The CIA was using Remote Viewing and it was tested and deployed under rigorous scientific conditions to obtain data about foreign espionage activities, counter terrorism efforts, secret military bases abroad and hidden missiles. It recognized the inherent psychic potential in humans and attempted to harness these special faculties or ‘powers’ for the purposes of intelligence gathering, often of a vital nature. Kind a version of XMen.
The initial testing was done at the Stanford Research Institute (SRI) where extensive investigations were carried out into the human mind’s capacity to transcend all bounds of time and space. SRI’s research was supported by the CIA and other government agencies for over two decades.
Yet the mainstream doctrine is never to explore and to stay on the path just following the current belief. This is the crowd that burned Bruno at the stake for daring to say the planets revolved around the sun and then there was the bold and crazy idea that the earth was round. Metaphysical and psychic phenomena have long existed on the fringes of conventional science and academia. Just about everyone has it to some degree. We think of someone and then the phone rings and they can be on the other side of the world. ESP, Clairvoyance, Telekinesis and Astral traveling have all been relegated to the back seat of mainstream. The established accepted belief systems crumble only in time of economic declines that are significant. This was the how Christianity won over Paganism for it took the 3rd Century economic collapse of Rome to convince people their prayers were not heard because nobody was there.
Nevertheless, in spite of an extensive mention of these practices down the ages, across myriad cultures, the established mainstream just blocks out any challenge or revelation that they might be wrong and a new frontier might exist. Change is never accepted easily yet every politician says vote for them for “change” that never comes. Mainstream has always refused to listen because it requires admitting they were wrong. Economics did not want to listen to Keynes until after the Great Depression. This is how it is.
The book Forbidden Archaeology reveals all the evidence that documents the academics are wrong even about history. The evidence is in their drawers that they hide from the public because they cannot explain things like maps showing Antarctica with no ice from about 300BC – guess all the chariots bred too many horses that produced extra methane. There is a wealth of evidence to suggest that the nice linear progression of history and society may be seriously wrong. The whole issue of Noah and the Great Flood has been documented from evidence but at the same time there are legends of Atlantis that may be stories about the same event reflecting cyclical rise and fall.
The whole theory of ice ages is based upon groves in rocks that were assumed to be created by ice movement. Why? Because they discovered Woolly Rhinoceros and Mammoths in Russia that were frozen rapidly. The academic community was confronted by the evidence that there could be rapid change in the blink of an eye. This gave birth to the theory of ice ages – rapid changes.
So there is always going to be those people who are incapable of thinking outside the box (mainstream) who will insist anything new is never real. They will resist any change and that is just the way they are. It does not matter to these folks that if they simply looked at Thermodynamics they would understand that cycles MUST exist. Even light travels in cycles – not some linear straight line. In reality, to argue that cycles do not exist is actually absurd since it would mean everything in the universe is governed by the laws of physics (cycles) EXCEPT man. Even the Global Warming people have had to shift gears first admitting there is just a “pause” in the trend, which implies cycles, and now they changed the title to “Climate Change” to hide the error in their thinking deflecting the building criticism of their linear one way street mentality.
Therefore, the study of all phenomenon and how it will revert to a cyclical pattern may be counter to the mainstream thought of people unable to think out-of-the-box, however, this is reality. It was the shocking discovery of Lorenz and the birth of Chaos theory when he assumed data of weather was random and only with a computer he discovered it reverted to a cyclical pattern – the hidden order within the appearance of chaos.
So yes, most governments do monitor our models if they use it is another question. They could care less about the theory – if it works, that is all they are interested in. They will sort out the WHY later. For now, separating both domestic civil unrest from international war allows us to create two models and then test them back in time. They will converge since the timing is different. The last convergence was the 1700s.
Merkel’s comments that have sparked a ton of emails saying Germany is following our model simply reflect that they realize there is a rising trend against government that is economically driven. NATO has acknowledged publicly that Russia could take all of Ukraine if it desires in 3 to 5 days and the West cannot stop them.
So that is the bottom line. What they do with it – who knows?
