SPACESHIP EARTH

"We travel together, passengers on a little spaceship, dependent upon its vulnerable reserves of air and soil, all committed for our safety to its security and peace; preserved from annihilation only by the care, the work, and, I will say, the love we give our fragile craft. We cannot maintain it half fortunate, half miserable, half confident, half despairing, half slave to the ancient enemies of man, half free in a liberation of resources undreamed of until this day. No craft, no crew can travel safely with such vast contradictions. On their resolution depends the survival of us all."

ADLAI STEVENSON, 1964

MOTHER OCEAN & MARINE LIFE UNDER ATTACK FROM ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION: CATHODIC PROTECTION & MICROWAVE TECHNOLOGIES





Recent increased awareness of these global threats to life in the ocean is largely due to the combined efforts of two 'kaitiaki-moanas', or 'ocean guardians', Kauai-based marine biologist and underwater photographer Terry Lilley, and his research associate and diving buddy, Atlanta Georgia-based chemical engineer Stewart Simonson.

'KAITIAKI MOANA' GLENN EDNEY, MARINE BIOLOGIST & AUTHOR OF 'THE OCEAN IS ALIVE'


GLENN & JANEY of 'OCEAN SPIRIT'

Extraordinary thanks to Glenn Edney of Tutukaka, New Zealand for his brilliant contributions to enhancing our understanding of Mother Ocean as well as for being kaitiaki moana* par excellence! This show is the first in an on-going series of dialogues we are sharing; here we focus on the nature of water which is in itself a life-form! Glenn is a highly (but not over-) educated broad-band-thinking mind who I would say is one of the most aware, conscious, informed and concerned people I have had the pleasure to communicate with in recent  years. 
LISTEN AND/OR DOWN-LOAD 'On The Brink' Radio Dialogue


Glenn and his partner Janey ran a whale-encounter enterprise in Tonga for several years before heeding the call to duty to return to the land, literally, of his fellow homo sapiens to educate and inspire them to see that they are an integral part of life herself and Mother Earth/Ocean...not separate from them.

"ULTIMATE SEA-LIFE DREAMING" by Jeff Phillips
Here is an excerpt from the prologue to The Ocean is Alive in which Glenn is describing a very powerful encounter with a humpback whale and her calf:


"As I float on the surface, fully immersed in her energetic field, I feel the strangest sensation, as if I’m being entered through every pore of my skin. I feel her presence within me, filling my senses with her being. There’s a moment when I contemplate resisting; a momentary fear of the unknown perhaps, but there’s no sense of danger. I close my eyes, open my arms, my whole being to her internal gaze. Everything outside this connection fades; I hardly feel the chill of the water against my bare skin. I’m aware of myself but can no longer distinguish a clear separation between us. I recognize my own thoughts, feelings and emotions but also experience her emotional being as my own...


I start to feel a sense of expansiveness, as if I’m stretching out through the water like a wave, but with the same feeling of extended consciousness and connection that comes when the mind reaches a deep level of stillness during meditation. There’s another quality to this sensation, some deeper meaning, but I can’t grasp what it is. I feel her probing me, looking for understanding and somehow I sense that I do understand what it is she’s trying to show me. I can’t touch it yet, it’s lying just out of reach, but I know it’s there. Maybe she feels this too because the intensity of her probing diminishes and takes on a lighter feel...
It feels like she’s giving me a guided tour of her inner being but I’m aware that I’m only skimming the surface. There’s so much more to see, if only I knew how. It doesn’t feel as if she’s hiding anything from me, just that I’m not capable of seeing it. But I also get the sense that she’s more than capable of blocking my access to her if she chooses. She has chosen to communicate with me in this way and it is very much on her terms."
* "ocean guardian".

Another great and thought-provoking dialogue, the second in our on-going series about Mother Ocean, who she is, who her family is, how we are hurting her/them...and how we might live in greater harmony with mitakuye oyasin at every level.

"The Ocean reaches out to us, drawing us into her mystery, thrilling our bodies with her sensual caress, feeding our soulful search for life’s meaning. For the longest time we have held the mysterious depths of the Ocean as a living testament to the unknowable, allowing us the freedom to imagine, to speculate without limit, life’s possibilities. From her depths we conjured monsters to feed our fear and test our courage. We looked upon her limitless horizon as a call to adventure and exploration. We used her body to enrich our own, both physically and spiritually. We needed her to be alive, limitless and sentient so we could explore our own sentience."

"THE RETURN OF THE LORAX" TECHNO-RAP SONG BY JEFF PHILLIPS (1995)

THE RETURN OF THE LORAX

I was walking in the forest just the other day
Up on Sis Naajini* where the sasquatch play,
Where the sky people dwell and the saucers command,
When I heard a voice saying, "Yo! Hey there, man…

If you have just a moment I’d like to relate
An urgent message on the current state
Of the health of the Earth and her passengers/crew,
That’s all living beings, and especially you."

Now I stood quite amazed at what I’d just heard,
From the tone of his voice my mind inferred
That the reference frame of this fellow here
Was quite perpendicular but somehow clear.

"Excuse me, sir, homo sapiens friend,
Of truffula trees we’ve witnessed the end,
Due to lack of kindness and mammalian greed,
You’ve no global shortage of disposable thneeds!"

"You’re right!" I exclaimed, with my thumb in the air.
"I’ve hitch-hiked forever but still I’m not there.
This beautiful Earth blue and green do I love,
As ancestor spaceships return from above."

"You know of the craft coming soon, I can see.
Prepare to experience eternity.
The angels of revelation drawing near
To battle the forces of killing and fear.

The ships of sky-people grandfathers alight
On the edge of the present in the dark of night;
Human kind, kin and cousin, far and wide shall you view
Some broad misconceptions which you hold to be true.

The forces of evil in your minds reside,
The absence of love, no compassion inside
For your fellow crew beings here on the Earth.
You’re totally clueless concerning her worth.

Your planet’s the nexus of life water-based
Whose genesis here my grandfathers retraced
From original blue-prints in their dream-time continuum
Which resembles a hyper-space infundibulum.

Remember the reason you’re here, I insist.
If not, the Earth may become rather pissed.
With motherly firmness she would find a way
To teach all her naked apes running astray."

Reeling in wonder and half-mesmerized
I came to my senses and soon realized
That I knew of this being not a thing, not a name,
Not the nature of his mysterious game.

"Pardon me, sir, I must know who you are.
What you do, where you’re from, now near or how far."
"I dwell in this forest with the sky folk, like you,
Here on Sis Naajini we’re from Thalion**, too.

I’m perfectly real, do you need more facts?
I guess you should know that I am the Lorax.
I speak for the trees of all times and spaces,
For all living beings, all phyla, all races,

Each myriad _expression of creation’s desire,
From the cellular nucleus to the hot stellar fire,
From Rigelian mantis to ‘shroom fungus spore,
To the trilobites deep on Earth’s ocean floor.

Listen up, homo sapiens, won’t you please get a clue?
You’re spoiling the Earth for us, and for you…
Your bed you have wet, in your britches you’ve shat,
You’re killing your own! Yo! What’s up with that?

Your infotoxin drives your world machine
Through the total summation of your daily routine;
Your unconscious jihad against nature is real.
Won’t you WAKE THE FUCK UP! Come alive and feel

Your connection with life: it’s deep in your heart.
We’ve all the same mother, the Earth, won’t you start
To use the best knowledge you already possess
For more than the sucking of infinite cess…

Don’t be a soldier in World War Three…
Park your car and plant a tree.
Use the tube to educate,
Leave the plants to vegetate."

With that he was gone, vanished into thin air,
And I in amazement stood standing right there.
I had just been informed with astute erudition
By the voice of the Lorax on the human condition.

So listen, now, friends, unless I’m insane
We must each from harming the Earth refrain.
Our lives are a precious gift, yes, it’s true,
On Spaceship Earth we’re ALL passengers/crew!

TIM'S NOTES ON MY GREENPLANETFM INTERVIEW

"Jeff Phillips originally studied physics as he wanted to be an astronomer, then switched over to zoology and psychology after being inspired by Dr. John C Lilly and his work with cetacean consciousness where he was invited to California to swim with the dolphins.

‘Civilized’ by definition means to live in cities and
includes everything associated and linked to living in a tightly organized, structured, law making, stratified and hierarchical systems.

Jeff goes on to describe the differences between indigenous living and civilization especially with the extractive economy to that of the consumptive economy where mining, from iron, to diamonds, to gold and coal- to today’s big baddie - uranium … It was either the people for the earth or the people against the earth. The indigenous not owning the land but instead being custodians.

When we look at the land grabs, the deaths, the betrayals, the deforestation, polluted rivers, broken down communities, the environmental damage, alcoholism, disease and societies over the hundreds of years this has been happening, the indigenous people have been virtually wiped out, now only living in isolation or assimilation, endeavoring to survive, being devoured by
the machine that is supposedly civilized!  See the movie Avatar as an example.

Jeff introduces the Hopi Prophecy from the area of 4 Corners in the USA and the movie Koyaanisqatsi and that homo sapiens morphing into the possibility of being a macro-virus [HSMV].

Jeff get us to look at our planet (as the loaner of our bodies as well as loaning us free air, water and a food chain) and that how would a sentient mother earth relate to us if we were known as her billions of children, no more special or less special than any other species, but we have somehow through incomprehensible events become to be tyrants of the earth hence the homo sapien micro virus. This being accentuated via the processes of the military industrial complex; we are seeing the downside of our actions as to what is happening on earth today.

Displacing so many minerals in the ground that we alter the magnetic field of our planet ….

J Lilly – the true meaning of terrestrial means … the land -  so that the words extra-terrestrial means 'away from land'.

Yet at the same time many indigenous peoples are connecting even deeper into their relationship with Mother Earth, as with Maori and Papatuanuku.

Jeff talks about being with musician Ralph Towner who was invited into Jeff’s project to record sound and music with wild dolphins and whales from boats, all being connected by satellite and beaming it out into space by radio telescope. This brought him into contact with Arthur C Clarke the science fiction writer of 2001: A Space Odyssey. However, Ralph Towner’s first response was to say – “we need to leave those people alone!”  Referring to cetaceans as ‘people’.

How is it that we are at one level wanting to engage in musical dialogue whilst on the other flipper – we are waging war on them.  And since the mid 1990’s Jeff has put his focus on to publicizing to everyone who wants to listen about the full spectrum war we are waging on whales and dolphins globally.

Communicating with dolphins under water using sophisticated acoustic devices and that the dolphin range for hearing is far, far higher than humans  – it overlaps ours but goes up by a couple of hundred thousand hertz.   Sound travels not only faster but at a higher density level in a more dense medium – water than it does in air.

Dolphins have a number of communication capabilities … that they can use simultaneously such as stereo echo location – their clicks and whistles, and another one where they can beam a focussed shock wave of sound out of the mellon which is in their head, to stun fish.

Whales though mammals have another extension on their brain the para-limbic lobe that no other mammal has – believed to do with synaesthesia the merging of all the different senses at once …

Also that the US navy has researched dolphins and endeavored to weaponize them to carry explosive charges etc. Most of this information is secret/even though the US Navy controls about 70% of all the worlds marine biology research.

Jeff refers to the dolphins and whales having been around for 10 to 20 million years as the ultimate indigenous people. Up until the end of the 19th century the world oceans were navigated by sailing boats, and the seas were silent, then with the advent of engines to propel ships and boats, to submarines and ASDEC and sonar and other electronic technologies the seas and oceans are now being pulsed and microwaved with sound that is causing major distress to ocean fauna.

Jeff intuitively feels that we can have an empathic and telepathic connection and communication with whales and dolphins because ‘ consciousness is non-local’ meaning you don’t actually have to be out on the water or out to sea to communicate with these beings."

Welcome to my first episode of 'On the Brink' radio recorded on my beloved Aotea, or Great Barrier Island, since last November when a freak gravitational encounter caused by a bicycle accident hospitalized me for several weeks, brought me into contact with many dozens of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet anywhere, and propelled me into an on-going 'unplanned shamanic initiation' and healing process, one dimension of which has been an enhanced empathic understanding of what a whale or dolphin must feel like when they strand and/or have been struck by an unguarded boat propellor.

In this show, recorded atop my local power spot called Memory Island, I reflect on what the Hopi native Americans call 'koyaanisqatsi', or 'life out of balance', and how it is only healed through the 'Day of Purification.' I speculate that the 'mechanism' of the next 'DOP' may well be a planetary cataclysm caused by a cometary impact. 

I also honour Aotea ('the dawn') as the closest place to a home that I may ever have had, and the most special part of New Zealand, an as-yet still relatively undisrupted remnant of the Aotearoa of yesteryear, unscarred and unravaged by commercialization and industry, very much worth fighting to protect.

And I honour and thank my lovely friend Tim Lynch, producer of his own radio show 'GreenplanetFM' for well over a decade. In the extent and depth of his dedication and commitment to information activism, he may be nearly as truly crazy and extreme as both Jules Stanly of ucy.tv and myself! :)

Welcome to this special report for On the Brink Radio. Many thanks to Dr. Iain Kerr, CEO of Ocean Alliance, which I consider to be both pinnacle and paragon of genuine leading-edge oceanographic research organizations.


Iain and I got in touch in April of 2010 just as the BP Gulf disaster was unfolding. Iain and his research yacht Odyssey had just returned to the states from a 5+ year survey of global ocean toxicity based on studying sperm whales. Without a break they launched into a subsequent research program studying the effects of the oil spill on marine life in the Gulf, which I believe continues to this day. 

Iain co-founded Ocean Alliance with Dr. Roger Payne, a well-known scientist and cellist who was the first to refer to humpback whale calls as 'songs', and the producer of the legendary lp 'Songs of the Humpback Whale' (which is what you are hearing behind the dialogue on this show, along with me on native American flute).

Their primary objectives have been to create awareness of global ocean toxicity as an emerging and primary threat to the health of all marine life with particular emphasis on cetaceans, to conduct leading-edge research to investigate this scenario, to educate the public about their findings and to inspire humanity as a whole to renavigate our course in order to protect life on Mother Earth, the only planet we know of who is so graced.

Our skype connection dropped out just as I was telling Iain about my new campaign to require the use of 'shrouds' on all boats with propellors; we will be recording part two soon, hopefully joined by Dr. Roger Payne and/or Patrick Stewart.
