It appears that this website may be under some kind of an “attack.” If you get weird messages coming up when you try to access this site, please do let me know. Messages like these two, that readers let me know about recently:
“This is a suspicious site. There is a higher than average probability that you will be exposed to malicious links or payloads.””
Here’s the other one. I took two screen shots to show it:
Not sure what’s going on yet. It’s not fun. I did ask Zen Gardner for advice, since something similar happened to his site, and he was very helpful. Thank you, Zen! I now have a web wizard working on it here.
All this happens just prior to my December 19th birthday, which I find interesting, since my “solar return” chart (which this year is today, December 18th, the moment when the Sun returns to the exact natal degree — in my case, 27°00 Sagittarius (conjunct the Galactic Center), with chart set for my present location for this upcoming year — pretty much describes the same kind of situation: “under attack.”
The Uranus/Pluto situation angular, and forming a grand cross with Moon and Mars. Yuck! Of course I need to turn this around, move into proactive aikido mode, all senses alert, internally centered, and prepared for — whatever! To that end, I will conduct a personal ceremony starting at around 1 p.m. today, probably out in the woods somewhere, to invoke all the guides and angels that surround and interpenetrate this 3D sphere . . .
Why the attack? Random? Or, perhaps this exopermaculture site is disrupting the status quo? I sure hope so.
A few months ago, I suddenly started to receive huge numbers of page views from the state of Virginia, which I find suspicious, given the spate of governmental security installations there.
Back in the 1978-79, when I was running a sweet little utopian community magazine for southcentral Idaho called “OpenSpace,” I started to focus in on the INEL (Idaho National Engineering Laboratory). The name sounds innocuous, doesn’t it? Now this installation in the desert near Arco has added a new moniker to its name, a really friendly sounding “Environmental.” So now it’s the INEEL (Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory). At the time, this installation had I think it was 65 small nuclear reactors, bused in hundreds? thousands? of workers from Idaho Falls and Pocatello, and god help you if you stopped your car to take a leak somewhere in the back stretches of that lonely area on your way from Jackson Wyoming to Ketchum Idaho. One of my sons did that once, and within a minute, guards drove up out of nowhere telling him to get along. I always knew better than to stop. Something about the vibe.
Anyway, I decided to investigate the INEL in OpenSpace, and produced, as I recall, a four-page picture spread, with lots of questions, and the few facts I was aware of. Like, at the time it was the second largest employer in Idaho! Like rumors of nuclear waste seeping out of storage pools into the Snake River Aquifer; on and on.
Well, within a few days of publication, I got a phone call from someone at the INEL. I no longer remember what was said, just that the tone of the man’s voice scared the beezeesus out of me. OpenSpace stopped all further investigation of the INEL.
I hope I’m “braver” now. Because here we are, over 30 years later, and somehow I just can’t stay away from this kind of exploration of what lurks in the shadows of our supposedly cheerful world. I call my focus working with taboos. It’s taboo to question authority, right? No longer! Yay! It’s taboo to look too closely at Old Age and Death, or at the U.S. Military, its domination of The Economy, or The Way Money Works, or . . . on and on. Well, I’d say some of this taboo stuff does still hang around, especially the Fear of Death, which, I’d say, governs everything else, underlies everything else. Fear of extinction, annihilation.
Speaking of which, please do go to see the movie Gravity on the big screen, with 3D glasses. If ever there was a film designed to help us confront and transform our fear of extinction, and especially, if ever there was a film designed to help us remember our deeply visceral communion with Mother Earth, this is it. And now I hear that an eerily similar situation that beset the two astronauts in the movie is now playing out on the International Space Station? Ye gods!
Question: Was the movie timed for release just as a false flag is triggered on the ISS? If so, why? Whodunnit? Follow the money? Seems like much bigger forces are at work, as usual. Oh my, here we go again.
December 18, 2013
IF it weren’t real, you’d think it was straight out of the film Gravity. A crisis situation is unfolding on the International Space Station.
NASA has today ordered up a series of urgent spacewalks to fix the system that controls the temperature of the equipment on the station.
While the astronauts – station commander cosmonaut Oleg Kotov, Americans Rick Mastracchio and Michael Hopkins, Russians Mikhail Tyurin and Sergey Ryazanaskiy, and Japanese astronaut Koichi Wakata – are safe and comfortable, NASA wants the system back up to full strength.
Another failure could leave the orbiting outpost even more vulnerable than it is right now.
The US space agency decided to send two American astronauts out as soon as possible to replace a critical cooling pump that contains a bad valve.
It’s a big job that will require two and possibly three spacewalks on Saturday, Monday and next Wednesday, Christmas Day.

US-led spacewalks have been on hold since July, when an Italian astronaut almost drowned because of water that leaked into his helmet.
As the blockbuster film Gravity so effectively portrays a space walk can turn into disaster. In the film, medical engineer Dr Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) and veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney) spiral out into the abyss of space when disaster strikes during a space walk to repair the Hubble Space Telescope.
Half of the station’s cooling system shut down last week. The six-man crew had to turn off non-essential equipment, including science experiments.

Flight controllers tried in vain to fix the valve remotely, then came up with a plan to use another valve to regulate the temperature.
Some success was reported, and for a while, engineers thought the space station could limp along with this short-term solution. But on Tuesday, managers opted for spacewalks right now
The issue is the same type of pump – a bulky 780-pound (354kg) bundle – that was replaced by spacewalking astronauts in 2010. Three spacewalks were needed then.
The lessons learned may enable astronauts Rick Mastracchio and Michael Hopkins to finish the job more quickly.
Mastracchio, a veteran spacewalker, and Hopkins, a first-time space flyer, trained for such a repair before rocketing into orbit. They have been prepping all week, just in case.
“Have not looked out the window in 4 days,” Mastracchio said in a tweet. “Too busy building space suits. Where did I put my gloves?”

What happens if everything goes wrong? NASA said there are two Russian Soyuzspacecraft attached to the space station for an evacuation.
“If there were an emergency on the space station, the crew could use the Soyuz to leave the space station and return to Earth,” according to NASA.
“Russia helps the United States run the International Space Station … but only Russian spacecraft carry people to it right now.”
Astronauts have ventured outside of their spaceship on Christmas Day only once, way back in 1973 during Skylab, America’s first space station.
