Having fun with cognitive dissonance

I got these two gems from the A Midwestern Doctor blog.

1) New Age Bullshit Generator:

This generator produces stuff that sounds plausible, but when you read it you scratch your head and wonder, “What is the point?” Click on the Reionize Electrons button at the top of the page to generate a new script.

2) Postmodern Language Generator. This one is scary because it generates a meaningless and frustrating word salad that mirrors academic papers by "experts." We hear EVERY DAY on the "news" from bureaucrats who testify before Congressional committees, and "expert" talking heads who inhabit network talk and news shows. Maybe these people are reading from scripts generated by these AI tools! It’s scary to think that cognitive dissonance is the language of our government (and media), which has turned inward on itself and the people it is supposed to assist.

The Wylie publishing group recently deleted 19 scholarly journals with hundreds of nonsense peer-reviewed AI articles that read like this.

re New Age Generator: I don’t like to criticize those seeking spiritual awareness. I myself have written a self-help book and a book titled “Dialogues, Conversation with My Higher Self,” which was my attempt to answer questions about life, the universe, and everything.

I know that many people are striving to connect with higher awareness. However, there are also marketers and con men out there who try to take advantage of well-meaning people by writing stuff like this. These are people who have no understanding of self or spirituality, and are just interested in notoriety and money.

Because I didn’t want to be classified in the Airhead / Space Cadet category with my spiritual writing, I wrote a math/geometry textbook about three dimensional solids called polyhedra. I figured it gave me cred with those who still have the ability to think rationally. 

I think the New Age generator writes pretty good spiritual gobbledygook. The Postmodern Language Generator is frighteningly close to the reality of ScienceTM, and academic and bureaucratic doublespeak. See for yourself.

Have fun with these two generators!

Guest post by Dr. Meryl Nass


Dr. Meryl Nass Describes the New “Mock-up” Vaccine scam, which comes under the heading, Pandemic Preparedness is a self-fulfilling prophecy.

When manufacturers want to release a new vaccine, they create a “mock-up” vaccine that is never intended for use. Nor is the mock-up vaccine ever tested for safety or effectiveness. Regulators approve the mock-up vaccine. Then regulators license the new vaccine based on the license for the mock-up vaccine. A similar “bait-and-switch” was performed with the FDA approval of the Comirnaty COVID vaccine, which was never intended for use in the US.

A mock-up vaccine is a prototype vaccine for a virus that is currently not infecting anyone. (Or, like the “bird flu,” has a handful cases over an entire country). A mock-up vaccine is just part of the fear porn hype for the release of novel vaccines that aren’t tested.

I’ll let Dr. Nass explain this.

More on the looming bird flu disaster. Lots of good new info, especially on how they avoid regulation of pandemic vaccines

Our old friend Jeremy Farrar helped create and control the narrative for 20 years, and now he is marketing the vaccines. He knows a lot we don't.

MERYL NASS, JUN 22, 2024

You may not be surprised that our old friend, Sir Dr. Jeremy Farrar, 007, OBE who was licensed to Overdose 2600 hospitalized patients on HCQ in the RECOVERY and SOLIDARITY trials, has been on the bird flu beat for 20 years. No wonder he got his Order of the British Empire. He’s been stoking these flames a very long time.

And his fellow criminal, Dr. Peter Horby, Principal Investigator of the RECOVERY trial, who is only responsible for overdosing 1600 hospitalized patients of whom 400 died, was with Farrar in Vietnam 20 years ago to start up bird flu fear porn. He was made a Knight Bachelor for his services to eugenics in the UK in 2021.

Peter Horby, Director of the Pandemic Sciences Centre, and Professor of Emerging and Infectious Diseases and Global Health, becomes a Knight Bachelor for services to Medical Research. He co-leads the UK Randomised Evaluation of COVID-19 therapy (RECOVERY) trial, the largest randomised controlled trial of COVID-19 treatments in the world. He is also the lead investigator of the EDCTP-funded epidemic-preparedness network – African coaLition for Epidemic Research, Response and Training (ALERRT).

Don’t forget the USA! The Council on Foreign Relations did their bit to stir the pot of chicken flu. They sent journalist and Senior Fellow Laurie Garrett on a national tour dressed as Henny Penny, to tell us that birds were falling out of the sky from flu, but not till they migrated to the US from overseas, and that millions of humans could die. Especially young, healthy people according to Garrett. (I’ve previously reported I attended one of her lectures at the MDI Biolab in Maine around 2005.)

Simultaneously, this scam was used to develop another really dangerous scam: the faked regulation of pandemic vaccines. This scheme centrally involved the WHO, EMA, FDA and Canada’s drugs regulator. This scheme is the MOCK-UP vaccine, which makes a mockery of regulation and mocks the people inveigled into taking these vaccines.

Here’s how the scheme works:

Someday we expect a bird flu pandemic. We will absolutely definitely have to have a vaccine. Forget about drugs, we need vaccines! But it takes 10-15 years to develop a vaccine. Is this an insurmountable conundrum?

Of course not!

We invent a fake vaccine. Let’s pick a number; no, let’s pick 2 numbers! H1N1. H5N1. H9N2. H5N8. Whatever.

We design some vaccines with different Hemagglutinins and Neuraminidases. We throw in a potentially dangerous novel adjuvant, say MF59 or ASO3 to supercharge the immune response, because the next pandemic could be an existential threat, you never know. And as good girl scouts our motto is “Be Prepared.”

Then we take our new design and inject 1,000 or more people with it, preferably in some far-off country where they have no idea what they are getting. (Although right now that far-off country happens to be Finland, where they have started injecting people with an H5N8 vaccine for a virus that does not currently exist, except in freezers.)

A huge Pharma company creates the “package” of data required for this MOCK-UP vaccine as if it is a real product, but of course they could care less about its safety and efficacy because it is only a model and is not intended for use. The mock-up vaccine is like the cups and plates in a child’s tea party service, compared to the bone china used when Mommy serves tea.

The regulatory agencies then “approve” or “authorize” the mock-up vaccine, while they don’t care either about safety or efficacy because they don’t expect it to be used. Just like this:

When a real pandemic appears, the manufacturers suddenly swap out new virus genes for old ones and the regulators say, “Go for it!” They license the new vaccine based on the license for the mock-up vaccine. They grandfather it in, just like they do in the US for each year’s new seasonal flu vaccines.

Isn’t this a clever idea? Now we can get vaccines to our populations (who are desperately thirsting for them) in no time.

It took 5 days (FIVE DAYS) for the regulators to approve the Pandemrix swine flu vaccine with ASO3 in 2009, using this approach. This was the vaccine that caused severe narcolepsy in over 1300 adolescents.

But like I said, the whole idea is a scam and they know it. Tom Jefferson pointed out what the agencies really believed about this process:

Oh, and by the way, this process had a life of its own. You couldn’t stop it.

You see, the WHO orchestrated sleeper contracts between vaccine manufacturers and national governments around 2004 based on these mock-up vaccines. The contracts were signed and sealed. When WHO D-G Margaret Chan breathed the words “Level 6 pandemic” in 2009 the contracts were triggered and

  • the manufacturers delivered the product at warp speed;
  • countries had to pay for the vaccines per their contracts;
  • regulators had to approve them based on the mock-ups;
  • and governments had to use them.

The term “Level 6 pandemic” was struck down pretty fast after this, since its definition had been changed only weeks before D-G Chan spoke, enabling any old (new) virus to meet the bill. That alone was such a scandal that the term pandemic never got redefined by WHO, for over 10 years.

I don’t know what the magic words are to trigger the next set of sleeper contracts, or if they still exist. I don’t know what the process is, going forward. The IHR amendments and pandemic treaty were being used, in part, to globalize the acceptance of the “100 Day vaccine” but those efforts just failed, at least for the time being. But you can bet your bottom dollar there is a plan to get untested vaccines out to the population tout suite. Pharma, the WHO and their army of lawyers must have something cooked up and simmering on the back burner for bird flu.

Jeremy Farrar’s CEPI still planned to use those mock-up/prototype vaccines as their way in, as recently as 2023. A lot of our tax dollars go to CEPI:

Or will they just roll out some worthless old bird flu vaccine that has already been approved? Maybe a real killer, like this bird flu vaccine named Audenz, for which 5 times as many people who got the vaccine as got the placebo died?

Or will the FDA instruct manufacturers to start making vaccines that maybe were never approved?

Remember, this is a disease that is milder than a cold in humans. No American has ever died from bird flu, and only three have ever been said to have the disease, per CDC: one case of 4 days of fatigue, one case of pink eye, one case of pink eye with cough. All resolved.

It used to be a deadly disease but it only affected under 900 people worldwide, and killed about half of them. WHO has been desperately seeking someone killed by bird flu recently, and attempted to claim a death in Mexico, but the Mexicans didn’t let them get away with that claim. The WHO is actually expected to tell the truth in Mexico. I guess the Mexicans got sick and tired of being blamed for the 2009 swine flu, which turned out to be milder than seasonal influenza, but probably cost them $billions in tourism receipts.

When you cry “pandemic” you are automatically picking winners and losers.

Will the powers that be roll out a lethal disease for us too? They probably have a few in the fridge.

We need to shut this entire project down, worldwide, and fast.

Climate change is real. But much of it involves the artificial manipulation of climate phenomena using climate weaponry.

“Get busy living, or get busy dying.”
— Red, from the Shawshank Redemption
“We are never going to get to the bottom of climate change without first and  foremost including the climate engineering issue.”
— Charles Jones, USAF Brigadier general (RET)
“These [climate change] operations should be considered the most insane endeavor ever deployed by the human race.”
— Dane Wigington

In the last substack we talked about the weaponization of public health, the HHS regulations regarding the declaration of a public health emergency, and the CDC’s Childhood Vaccination Schedule. However, I left out a very important part of the rogue element that is attacking humanity: geo-engineering.

Geo-engineering, or climate engineering, is a program that involves spraying absurdly small nanoparticles of aluminum and barium into the atmosphere: a million tons per year, in an attempt to block the sun. This program is justified by hysterical claims about global warming destroying life on earth. In fact, the opposite is true: the climate engineering programs are themselves destroying the earth’s life systems. They affect every life form, every species, from the plankton in the oceans to human beings. Climate engineering, in my opinion, is an outgrowth of the U.S. bioweapons program, which began in the 1930s. The spraying of populations began in the 1940s as part of the bioweapons program, to test the result of newly developed pathogens. The two programs are inextricably linked:[1]  bioweapons via vaccines and the weaponization of insects and birds a la Erich Traub,[2] and the climate change program. Each supports the other, in my mind, and both are attacks on life on this beautiful planet.

I’m not going to bore you with a description of this movie, for the presentation speaks for itself. It is compelling; I could not stop watching. As Red says in the first quote above, humanity can either get busy living, or get busy dying. That stark choice is part of the decisions humanity must make in the Consciousness War.

Please share your thoughts in the comments. Is this presentation a lot of hype? Is it just more fear porn? RFK Jr. didn’t think so, but I want your opinion.

The Anti-social Element

The American people are under assault from a rogue element of their own government in DC. This rogue element has taken what it has learned in researching and developing bioweapons, fighting foreign wars, instituting Color Revolutions abroad, and toppling other governments around the world. It is now applying those tactics in the United States.

Throughout history, a certain fraction of human societies have always been anti-social. The anti-social element within human consciousness has always wanted control, power, and domination. This element has risen to the top of our government institutions and our military, intelligence, and even federal medical establishments.

It’s easy to understand how this happened: psychopaths are maniacally focused on their own needs and how to obtain them, and the laws of the universe reward those with a fixed and unwavering focus. Unfortunately, these people do appalling things because their awareness is truncated on all of the dynamics of life. Psychopaths don’t even understand themselves, so their actions seem evil and insane to the rest of us. It all stems from low consciousness and/or low self-awareness.

Unfortunately, low self-awareness does not stop the antisocial element from achieving its goals. Fortunately, however, low self-awareness leads essentially to the same game plan over and over because, throughout history, the desire for domination and control moves in well-worn grooves that everyone is familiar with.

The Phoenix Program

For example, let’s consider the Vietnam era Phoenix Program, sometimes called the “strategic hamlet” program. This was an effort to eliminate “communists” and “subversives” from key areas of South Vietnam. Bombing, the use of chemical weapons such as Agent Orange, and assassinations were used to eliminate undesirables and make the country “safe for democracy.” A U.S. major put it this way during the VietCong attack on Ben Tre on February 7, 1968: “We had to eliminate the town in order to save it.”[1]

According to the CIA, the Phoenix Program was “a set of programs that sought to attack and destroy the political infrastructure of the [Viet Cong].” Unlike many other special teams, its members targeted combatants and civilians aiding the guerrilla fighters. By undermining their support system, the hope was they would impact the Viet Cong.[2]

Sponsored by the C.I.A., Phoenix used paramilitary teams to target undercover Communist operatives in villages throughout South Vietnam. Witnesses claimed that members of the program’s teams and their American advisers routinely carried out torture, murders and assassinations, accusations that American officials denied.[3]

The brutal irony is that Ho Chi Minh was a Western-educated nationalist, and the people in Vietnam had no idea what a communist even was. The U.S. obsession with communism was largely a creation of the Dulles brothers, Secretary of State John Foster Dulles and CIA director Allen Dulles.[4] This is made very clear in Stephen Kinzer’s history, The Brothers.

Fusion Centers

Almost 60 years later, the “Strategic Hamlet” program has been transferred to U.S. soil and now exists as the National Fusion Center Association (NFCA). Fusion Centers purport to be “entities that share intelligence and information to prevent crime and terrorism,” but are essentially military/intelligence operations that are working to militarize police departments and gather intelligence on American citizens in order to neutralize “domestic terrorists.”

The game plan of our psychopathic overlords moves through time with current events, but it always follows the same playbook: centralization, top-down control, and intimidation.

On the National Network of Fusion Centers map at I counted at least 64 of these centers.

The Weaponization of Medicine and Public Health

At the same time, our national public health bureaucracies (CDC, NIH, FDA, NAIAD) have largely merged with the vast U.S. bioweapons industry. Our “vaccines” are now being developed by the U.S. military’s DARPA, BARDA, and DTRA. Same game plan, different area.

Here is what Fort Belvoir’s Defense Threat Reduction Agency’s Chemical and Biological Technologies Department says about their DOMANE vaccine development program (for “Technologies” substitute “Weapons” and you have the gist):

The Defense Threat Reduction Agency’s (DTRA) Chemical and Biological Technologies Department, in its role as the Joint Science and Technology Office (JSTO), is developing a system-of-systems called DOMANE — Discovery of MCMs (medical countermeasures) Against Novel Entities — an interdisciplinary effort with team members whose expertise include computer science, physics, and medicine. DTRA CB posits that one drug may be insufficient towards countering a threat, so it is developing DOMANE to rapidly identify a combination of drugs to impact the novel biological threat from multiple targets, which may prove effective in promoting a disease-modifying effect to counter the biological threat.

Systems within DOMANE include machine learning, high-throughput screening, in silico predictive tools, cryogenic electron microscopy (cryo-EM), organ-on-a-chip, and other emergent technologies. Machine-learning algorithms greatly reduce the time needed to search vast amounts of data on drugs and diseases. DOMANE is possible, in part, because of research studies that have occurred over the past several decades on biological threat agents and MCMs. The studies resulted in the global availability of a large repository of laboratory and clinical data (“big data”) on how biological threats affect the human body.[5]

Notice that this description does not contain the word “vaccine.” Instead it uses the correct term, “Medical Countermeasure,” or MCM. A medical countermeasure is a term used to describe an antidote to a developed bioweapon. How are these MCM’s developed? Using “machine learning, high-throughput screening, in silico predictive tools, cryogenic electron microscopy (cryo-EM), organ-on-a-chip, and other emergent technologies.”

That’s really encouraging! The human touch in medicine is just what is needed.

We have all heard about the gain-of-function experiments performed during the laboratory development of SARS-COV-2. The mRNA vaccine was a medical countermeasure developed to counter the effects of a “biological threat agent” developed in labs. The dirty little secret is that our bioweapons industry weaponizes pathogens and viruses and then designs countermeasures for them in a “sword (bioweapon) and shield (countermeasure)” approach. These countermeasures will then be released as vaccines and rubber-stamped by the FDA under the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) protocol, which protects the distributors from legal harm.

How did we get to this point?

EUA released medical products are not approved by the FDA, but are approved under the authority of the Health and Human Services (HHS) secretary in response to a declared “public health emergency.” The HHS secretary has carte blanche to declare anything a public health emergency merely by officially publishing it. In other words, a “public health emergency” could be 5 cases of avian flu as long as the HHS Secretary says it is.

Here is an article that outlines some of the appalling HHS regulations describing the declaration of a public health emergency in the United States, and the release process for medical countermeasures. It is well worth reading, and not long:[6]

It’s hardly believable, yet these regs have already been issued and are in force.

And then there’s the OPPR, the Office of Pandemic Preparedness and Response.[7] This new Executive agency was created in 2023. Guess who is the head of OPPR? Retired Maj. Gen. Paul Friedrichs. Yup, “pandemic preparedness” is yet another military program. How did the military get to take over law enforcement, public health, and medicine?

 More to the point, how can you “prepare” for a pandemic, which by definition involves an unknown bioagent? Well, you can’t. But if you know beforehand what Disease X is going to be, why, it’s a piece of cake because you have already developed a countermeasure to it!

“Pandemic Preparedness” is a self-fulfilling prophecy that uses a bioweapons program to develop harmful pathogens and viruses with the aim of releasing medical countermeasures that may cause more harm than good to the public. If you can stoke enough fear among the population, you can also make money by releasing a new medical countermeasure and selling it to the government! This is insane, but it’s how psychopaths think.

All of this craziness is part of the consciousness war. The anti-social element feels threatened by what might be called a silent but rising awareness among the population. Their goal is to dominate and control the “new” consciousness of cooperation and harmony. To do that they follow the same tired old game plan of the past 6,000 years. We can see this in the HHS regs, the OPPR, the health regulations issued by the World Health Authority and the WHO, the GREEN+ initiative,[8] and, unfortunately, the anti-social vaccination program against children. Against children?

From Dr. Toby Rogers:

If you follow the CDC's Child and Adolescent Vaccine Schedule to the letter your child will have a chronic illness. Guaranteed. Autism, ADHD, autoimmune disorder, eczema, learning disability, cancer, diabetes, epilepsy, and/or life threatening allergy.

The CDC's Child and Adolescent Vaccine Schedule is a political document and it reflects the interests of the psychopaths in charge of Big Medicine.

The CDC's Child and Adolescent Vaccine Schedule is a machine for turning healthy children into sick children who need frequent visits with specialists and endless prescription medications. This is not some prediction about the future. It is already happening.

Almost no rich families follow the CDC's Child and Adolescent Vaccine Schedule. They all opt out. The CDC's Child and Adolescent Vaccine Schedule is inflicted on poor and middle class children. The CDC's Child and Adolescent Vaccine Schedule is a class war that we are losing.[9]

Moreover, pediatricians receive financial incentives for administering vaccines, “including  kickbacks of up to $240 per visit.”[10]  

Again, the same old game plan by the anti-social element. Their game plan is always centralization and top down control, which usually manifests by making the rich richer and the poor poorer.

However, there is good news, very aptly expressed by James Howard Kunstler in his online blog called Clusterfuck Nation:

This is the most significant reality of the world picture now: the wishes of the manager class are going in one direction while the actual dynamics of economy and politics go in the opposite direction. The managers wish for their management of systems to become as centralized and top-down as possible; but the very systems they manage are breaking down and seeking to reorganize at smaller scale, distributed locally. The tension entailed is explosive.

...Everything organized at the gigantic scale is steaming toward failure: big governments, giant companies, the huge capital investment firms, global shipping, energy production, chain retailing, mass motoring, big electricity, big medicine, big education, big anything. They are all fixing to fail while our politicians and economists make plans based on consolidating them into one super-gigantic mega-system that will run flawlessly on computer tech magic.

Yup. The massive, centralized systems will fail, but how long will that take?

How Long Will the Consciousness War Continue?

Until the consciousness revolution spreads so much light that enough of the dark underbelly of human society is exposed. We are in the middle of that process now.

The consciousness revolution is a silent revolution because the real action occurs on the mental/spiritual plane and is invisible.[11] But this silent activity slowly but surely moves the Overton Window of permitted actions more and more toward the light and away from the dark.

The people on the streets, the people making the most noise, are just operatives.

These folks are mobilized by the anti-social forces, who well understand that in order to sow societal conflict, groups supporting both sides of an issue must be created, funded, and activated. They sponsor pro-Ukraine War groups and anti-war Ukraine groups. They sponsor pro-Israel and anti-Israel (Palestine) groups. The antisocial agenda must have conflict and hatred in order to stay in power. The cause of any and every conflict throughout history is, as Matthias Desmet says, “at every point where a person loses their humanity.”[12]

The anti-social program has worked for 6,000 years, but people are getting really tired of it.

Viva la Consciousness Revolution!

You may not want to ask this of others, but it’s a good question to ask yourself


Before we begin, I want to distinguish between the “soul” and you. I was raised Catholic. I was told that when I die, my soul would be saved. “Yeah that’s great!” I thought. “But what about me? What happens to me after I die?” The soul, I always thought, was something separate from me, so who cares what happens to it?

To avoid confusion I am going to use the word consciousness to describe the self-aware personality that wakes up every day, goes to work or play; the one who directly experiences life. No, not the body. The body is part of human consciousness, of course, because the body’s receptor cells automatically filter the electromagnetic spectrum and create what we experience as everyday reality. Our definition of consciousness goes beyond scientific materialism, which is the notion that only the physical universe exists.   

The Question

Here’s the question: “What happens after you take your last breath?”

Why ask this question at all? Because the light of spirituality is dimming in our secular, atheist, and rage-a-holic society; a society that glorifies technology and science and deprecates the human connection to the beauty and love of the spiritual realm.

The spiritual realm is the seat of consciousness.

Science and technology are taking humanity down the road to a stultifying scientific materialism that regards human beings as easily controlled and directed stimulus-response digital machines.

Transhumanism is at the forefront of this movement. The goal of Transhumanism is essentially to cheat death and achieve immortality. I suppose that is an admirable goal, but what if the consciousness of every human being is already immortal?

The Prize

My wife and I are watching the Highlander series again. The Highlander was made in the 1990s, and depicts characters who are physically immortal – unless you take their head. The series is fascinating because the writers and producers made the most of a simple concept: A very small percentage of humanity has always been physically immortal. A Gathering of immortals will eventually take place until there is only one left. The prize? The winner becomes mortal and can die.

Why would the prize, after thousands of years of living, be the death of the body? Perhaps, as is made clear in the series, living forever in the same body builds up a lot of trauma. People become so jaded that they want to start over. The main actor, Adrian Paul, is superb at portraying a 400-year-old man and the challenges a person might face living so long.

Even if Transhumanists can create a body that never dies, would that solve the problem of living forever in the same body?

I doubt it. Living forever doesn’t guarantee happiness. Transhumanism doesn’t guarantee happiness. No, Transhumanism is an “out” for those who are petrified of taking their last breath.

Because, you know, what happens after that? Well, blackness I guess. You are snuffed out.

I don’t blame people who are afraid of this outcome, for it is terrifying.


What if there was a spiritual system on the planet that made this question moot? We discussed such a system in a previous post. This system gives you a break every 80 years or so. Then you come back in the process of reincarnation. It’s you, just in a different body. Variety is the spice of life.

If consciousness doesn’t originate in the body, then it is independent of the physical universe. And that means that after you take your last breath, you continue.

Physical immortality a la the Highlander, or Transhumanism, is the process of unbroken, continuous consciousness. Reincarnation is the process of unbroken, continuous consciousness combined with a release of all the trauma of the last lifetime, and a re-start. Sounds pretty good to me.

Everyone has two choices: (1) belief in the continuance of consciousness, or (2) belief in the complete snuffing out of existence after the body takes its last breath.

The irony is that both options result in the same thing, but you won’t know for sure until the body breathes its last.

Most of us simply go through life without asking what we are doing here, and that’s fine. But eventually we must all face the Ultimate Question.

What I don’t understand are people who believe so thoroughly in their own demise. Hardcore materialists have consciously chosen (2), and have created an entire field of science/technology that is receiving massive funding. Apparently there are many on the planet who think this way.

The good news is that no matter who you are, at the end of life, all endings are happy endings: a return to the spiritual realm. It’s something to look forward to.
