William Powell, the author of The Anarchist Cookbook, in 1971 © JP Laffont/Sygma/Corbis On September 10, 1976, during an evening flight from New York to Chicago, a bearded passenger handed a sealed envelope to an attendant.

The note began: “One, this plane is hijacked.” In the rest of the letter, the passenger, a Croatian nationalist named Zvonko Busic, explained that five bombs had been smuggled onboard, and that a sixth had been placed in locker 5713 at Grand Central Station in Manhattan. Busic added that the pilot should radio the authorities immediately and that further instructions would be found with the bomb in the locker. “[It] can only be activated by pressing the switch to which it is attached,” he added, “but caution is suggested.” While the captain notified air traffic control, Busic entered the cockpit wearing what looked like three sticks of dynamite attached to a battery.

He told the captain that TWA Flight 355 was now headed to Europe. [Do It Yourself]Runaway hits. Auschwitz survivors - 70 years on. Eighty-nine-year-old Auschwitz survivor Jadwiga Bogucka, pictured above holding a photograph of herself at the time, was 19 when she and her mother were sent from their house to a camp in the Polish city of Pruszkow and then by train to Auschwitz. About 1.5 million people, most of them Jews, were killed at the Nazi camp which has became a symbol of the horrors of the Holocaust and World War Two, which ravaged Europe.

Bogucka and her mother were among about 200,000 inmates who survived Auschwitz, liberated by Soviet Red Army troops on January 27, 1945. German forces occupying Poland set up Auschwitz on an isolated 40 sq km site in southern Poland in 1940 as a labour camp for Polish prisoners, gradually expanding it into a vast labour and death camp. Bogucka, who was registered with camp number 86356, is among survivors who posed for portraits and recounted their stories to Reuters photographers in Poland and Hungary ahead of the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the camp this month. King Tut's Burial Mask Has Been "Irreversibly Damaged" Nicholas Roerich and The Chintamani Stone - A Holy Grail from Sirius? By Mark Amaru Pinkham for Four Corners Magazine from FourCornersMagazine Website With the current massive outpouring of information regarding the fabled Holy Grail (or Grails) it is impossible to ignore what may be the very first Holy Grail on Earth, the Chintamani Stone, the “Treasure of the World.”

Between 1923-1928 this stone, which first manifested on Earth many thousands of years before the Cup of Christ, was taken by the great Russian artist and mystic Nicholas Roerich into the heartland of the Far East in order to reunite it with the mother stone it had been separated from, a massive jewel that resided in Shambhala, the Land of the Immortals. This Chintamani Stone, which is of extra-terrestrial origin, had supposedly been brought to Earth by emissaries from a planet orbiting the star Sirius and then handed over to Shambhala’s principal resident, the elusive “King of the World,” a monarch known by many mystics in the East but only by a handful of occultists in the West.

From Sirius? Islam Is Privilege | Aral Balkan. On Wednesday, Charlie Hebdo, a satirical French newspaper was attacked by two jihadists. Shouting "Allahu Akbar", they proceeded to murder 12 people, including nine journalists and two police officers, for offending their religion. It's important that we understand this tragedy for what it is: the latest chapter in the clash of two incompatible ideologies; liberalism and Islam.

It is ironic, sad, and quite possibly catastrophic for the future of our freedoms and human rights that those who should be most outraged by this, my fellow liberals, are often the very same ones who do not understand it. Islam is an ideology, Muslims are people. The first mistake many liberals make is to confuse Islam (an ideology) with Muslims (people). Islam is a set of ideas. Just like any other idea or ideology, Islam also deserves no special protection from criticism or critique. Muslims, on the other hand, are people who have adopted Islam as dogma. Islamophobia is a homeopathic phobia Islam is not a race. Meshcheryakov.pdf. North Korean defector details ′human experiments′ | Asia | DW.DE | 30.12.2014. Im Cheon-yong says that witnessing mentally and physically handicapped children being used in chemical weapons tests carried out by the North Korean military was the last straw.

An officer in North Korea's special forces, Im had reservations about the nation in which he was living, and the regime that he served to the best of his abilities, but the "special training" he was required to undergo at a military academy in North Pyongan Province for the regime's elite troops helped to convince him that he needed to defect. "If you want to graduate from this academy, you need to learn how to confuse the enemy without revealing your own forces, how to carry out assassinations, how to use chemical weapons and so on," he told DW. 'The regime does this because it insists to their people that North Korea is heaven on Earth,' says Shigemura "And then we have what they call 'field learning'. For the biological and chemical warfare tests, we needed 'objects'," he added.

Abuse of citizens. Jean Thompson’s ‘The Witch: And Other Tales Re-told’ Photo The practice of retelling fairy tales in the form of literary fiction is, if not quite hallowed, certainly established. The great Angela Carter’s revelatory 1979 story collection, “The Bloody Chamber” — a brocaded work of heady sensuality, intelligence and violence — remains the benchmark, but Kate Bernheimer’s Fairy Tale Review and the several excellent Bernheimer-edited anthologies spun off from it carry the standard forward. Those are just some of the more overt homages; Western literature owes as much to fairy tales as it does to Greek myth and the Bible.

In the right light, “Pride and Prejudice” is a retelling of “Beauty and the Beast.” It’s unclear from reading “The Witch: And Other Tales Re-told” just how aware Jean Thompson is of this tradition. Carter and her literary descendants (it’s a daughter-heavy lineage) were mostly refugees from naturalism, the kitchen-sink school of narrative that predominated in mid- and late-20th-century fiction, and to which Thompson belongs. Why You Should Know Emanuel Swedenborg | Gary Lachman. The 18th century Swedish scientist, traveller, statesman, and religious philosopher Emanuel Swedenborg is one of the most fascinating and least understood figures in western history. If people know of Swedenborg at all, it is usually because of his connection with the poet William Blake, who was a follower of Swedenborg but later took argument with him. Or they may know of Swedenborg because of his remarkable psychic powers.

Not only did Swedenborg accurately predict the time and day of his death -- March 29, 1772 -- he also somehow knew of a fire that had broken out in Stockholm when he was at a dinner party in another town, some three hundred miles away. Swedenborg amazed the dinner guests as he spoke of the spread and eventual halt of the blaze, and when the news of it reached them a few days later, they discovered that he was correct.

Yet Blake was only one of the many thinkers, artists, and writers influenced by Swedenborg. Swedenborg was no woolly mystic. HOW CHINA FOOLED THE WORLD - Discovery Finance Business (documentary) Tattva vision. Tattvas in isolation and combination Tattva vision is a technique developed by the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn (probably derived from the elements, or Tattva [also known as Tattwas], of the Samkhya version of Hindu Philosophy) to aid with the development of the faculty of astral clairvoyance. It is claimed[by whom?] To be one of the easiest, fastest and most effective methods of exercising and enhancing the clairvoyant factor.

The tattva symbols[edit] The astral forms of the tattvas and equivalent in Western elements: Akasha - Spirit black or indigo vesica piscis or egg Tejas - Fire red equilateral triangle Vayu - Air blue circle purple half circle / silver crescent Prithivi - Earth yellow square Constructing tattva cards[edit] Tattva cards can be constructed by cutting the tattva symbols out of coloured paper or card, and pasting on to small cards of about 6 inches by 6 inches in size.

What Extreme Isolation Does to Your Mind. The experiences of prisoners held in solitary confinement—the despair, the disorientation, the hallucinations—are well documented, but laboratory observations of isolated human subjects and the profound effects of extreme confinement are exceedingly rare, in part because such experiments might have trouble getting past institutional review boards these days.

But that wasn't the case during the '50s, when Donald O. Hebb, a professor of psychology at Montreal's McGill University, set out to study how sensory isolation affects human cognition. Hebb had previously examined the effects of visual deprivation in rats as a doctoral candidate at Harvard University. In 1951, he secured a $10,000 grant from the Canadian Defence Research Board to expand his research to human subjects.

Hebb's experiments went well beyond the level of isolation prisoners typically experience in solitary. At the time, Milner was working on another project for Hebb, but he saw the sensory deprivation rooms firsthand. Psychic driving. Psychic driving was a psychiatric procedure in which patients were subjected to a continuously repeated audio message on a looped tape to alter their behaviour. In psychic driving, patients were often exposed to hundreds of thousands of repetitions of a single statement over the course of their treatment. They were also concurrently administered muscular paralytic drugs such as curare to subdue them for the purposes of exposure to the looped message(s). The procedure was pioneered by Dr.

D. Ewen Cameron, and used and funded by the CIA's Project MKUltra program in Canada. The topic of psychic driving is dealt with in some detail in the docudrama entitled The Sleep Room (1998) directed by Anne Wheeler.[2] The psychic driving procedure was a chronological precursor to Cameron's depatterning, the latter involving massive doses of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) combined with similarly large doses of psychedelic drugs (such as LSD).

The paper is from the Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease and contains case studies of people who have been held captive by terrorists, kidnappers, rapists, robbers, enemy troops and, er… UFOs. The reasoning behind including two ‘alien abductees’ was to compare hallucinations in verified versus unverified hostage situations. Cases of people who were hostages but did not hallucinate are also included. The study found that one in four hostages had intense hallucinations, and these were invariably people who were in life-threatening situations. Isolation, visual deprivation, physical restraint, violence and death threats also seemed to contribute to the chance of having a hallucinatory experience.
