Im pleased to report that the NEXUS Conference in Amsterdam was a success, thanks to the great organising skills of Herman Hegge and the people from Frontier Sciences Foundation PUBLISHED BY in The Netherlands. Hundreds of people from around the globe gathered to hear the latest NEXUS Magazine Pty Ltd, Australia. news and information, and nobody left disappointed with the quality of the information. EDITOR However, the quantity of information left people wanting more! It seems that two days for Duncan M. Roads a NEXUS Conference is not enough to satisfy the information cravings of our readers any CO-EDITOR more. Catherine Simons Taking this on board, we are pleased to announce that this years NEXUS Conference in ASSISTANT EDITOR/SUB-EDITOR Australia will be a three-day event, i.e., Friday/Saturday/Sunday (24/25/26 September), and Ruth Parnell it will be held in Brisbane. We are also going to have two evenings of "mingling" so that UK OFFICE ADMIN attendees, stallholders, staff and speakers can have more time to network and socialise. Marcus Allen This is going to be a pretty special event, so dont miss it. (See advert/insert this issue.) CONTRIBUTORS THIS ISSUE More and more debate is appearing on the Internet about the hidden agenda of the super- Dr Siegfried E. Tischler; Eve Hillary; powers to control the apparently dwindling reserves of natural energy resources such as Walter Last; Thomas Smith; Frank Strick; coal, gas and oil. I am therefore pleased to have an article by Dr Siegfried Tischler on how John Dodd; Wal Thornhill; the same families and corporations are involved in the drug trade, terrorism and oil politics.Atasha McMiillan and Laurence Gardner, Kt FSA (Dr Tischler is also going to speak at our Conference in Brisbane, where you will learn CARTOONS more about how oil is not created by fossil decomposition but is created and regenerated by Phil Somerville microbial activity.) COVER GRAPHIC The information I have learned so far about our rights under Common Law excites me John Cook, jscook@ozemail.com.au enormously. Already some landmark precedents have been set, and we hope to see PRINTING Common Law rights invoked so we can consume raw cows or goats milk or grow banned Goodhed Print Group, Bicester, Oxon., UK medicinal plants like comfrey, and so on, without fear of prosecution. I hear of cases being DISTRIBUTION won under Common Law by farmers who were levied by local government bodies for the Seymours, London, UK rainwater collected on their properties. Author Eve Hillary kindly bowed to my insistent UK OFFICE - 55 Queens Rd, East Grinstead, pressure and penned the first of several articles on this most important issue. West Sussex, RH19 1BG. When it comes to cancer survival rates with orthodox treatments, it would appear that we Ph: 01342 322854; Fax: 01342 324574 have not been told the full story. Now, the respected author/nutritionist Walter Last has e-mail address: nexus@ukoffice.u-net.com written an article which should shock every doctor who defends orthodox cancer treatments Website: www.nexusmagazine.com such as radical surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. EUROPE OFFICE - PO Box 48, 1600 AA Diabetes is so common these days that everyone knows someone with it—but not every- Enkhuizen, The Netherlands. one knows what really causes it or that it is curable. This groundbreaking article by Thomas Ph: +31 (0)228 324076; Fax: +31 (0)228 312081 Smith is essential reading for everyone, not just diabetics. e-mail address: nexus@fsf.nl NEXUS has previously published several articles looking at a largely unrecognised cause HEAD OFFICE - Articles, Reviews, etc. of many illnesses, i.e., parasites and other foreign micro-organisms.

In Iraq, they are on the verge of evolving into an inde- pendent force at least somewhat beyond the control of the US military. It is unclear exactly what law applies to the contractors as they do not fall under international law on mercenaries. Nor does the national law of the United States clearly apply to the contractors in Iraq— especially because many of the contractors are not Americans. There are already many examples of what can happen—notably, accusations that Dyncorp employees were involved in sex trafficking of girls in Bosnia.

Almost 140 years later, one wonders whether emancipation was the same kind of labelling fraud as was the eventual outcome of the Civil Rights movement. It is now hardly ever commented on, but the American Civil War "happened" while the oil industry was being established. Some 600,000 lives were ruthlessly wasted between 1861 and 1865 for "ideals" which, when viewed today, were phoney (at best) and to no material effect (as in the betterment of peoples lives).

During the 1980s and early 1990s, the adult Malcolm McClure was conducting his physics particularly in the research and teaching science, while a wider experiment was being conducted on the social, face of sweeping cultural and political fabric of the worlds people and their nations. Before most others, Malcolm McClure sensed the wrenching social changes that swept the changes caused by world in the wake of globalisation. Unlike other observers, however, he found himself inca- pable of accepting the social injustice that accompanied such innocuous-sounding policies as globalisation. "economic rationalism", "deregulation" and "privatisation". His perturbations led him unex- pectedly to change his lifes direction towards social justice issues. Through an attitude he calls "standing in the truth (no matter what)", he has since focused his work into an original and vigorous social movement that is rapidly gaining national recog- nition and is set to go beyond Australias borders. He calls his concept "non-political, and exportable to anywhere". Though Mr McClure accepts there are many forms of social expression, he has his own ideal for achieving social justice that does not include the usual political populist parties, think tanks, social and charitable organisations, petitions and political demonstrations. Elegant in their simplicity, Malcolm McClures ideas have intrigued some outspoken activists and thinkers.

Someone newly diagnosed with cancer faces enormous pressure from our health care system to start immediately on a sci- entific medical treatment program that involves surgery, chemotherapy and radiation in various combinations. Being fearful and in shock, most individuals in this situation are no match for the overwhelming power of medical authority. Research studies How would you react in this situation? You may be leaning towards natural therapies for simple health problems, but for something as serious as cancer you may feel safer with the and unbiased tested and proven methods of orthodox medical care. Nevertheless, if you have the chance, read the following before you make your final decision. You may then have a better statistical analysis appreciation of natural cancer treatment. show that there is In this article I have assembled some little-known facts about the science behind orthodox cancer treatment. In cancer research, success—expressed as a five-year survival rate—is no scientific basis established by comparing other forms and combinations of treatment with the results from surgery alone. However, the success rate of surgery has rarely been compared with the for orthodox cancer survival rates of untreated patients and never with patients who adopted natural therapies. Therefore, orthodox cancer treatment is basically unscientific. The overall supposed cure rate treatments like is not higher than can be accounted for by spontaneous remissions and the placebo effect. In support of my position, I offer the following key statements and conclusions from radical surgery, medical and scientific publications. "Studies appear to show that early intervention is helpful, because pre-cancerous lesions chemotherapy and are included in early removals that frequently would not become cancerous if left untouched radiation therapy [author’s emphasis]." In other words, early intervention appears to be helpful because lesions are removed that are not cancerous but are counted as being cancer, and that improves and that these the survival statistics. "Also, it does not matter how much or how little of a breast is removed; the outcome is always the same."1 This statement indicates that surgery does not treatments often do improve survival chances, otherwise there would be a difference between radical surgery and lumpectomy. more harm than Researchers have said it is complacent to continue subjecting at least 70% of women with breast cancer to a futile mutilating procedure.2 Furthermore, there is no evidence that early good. mastectomy affects survival; if patients knew this, they would most likely refuse surgery.3 In 1993, the editor of the Lancet pointed out that, despite various modifications of breast cancer treatment, death rates remained unchanged. He acknowledged that despite the almost weekly releases of miracle breakthroughs, the medical profession with its extraordinary capacity for self-delusion (his words, not mine) in all truth has lost its way. At the same time, he rejected the view of those who believe that salvation will come from increasing chemotherapy after surgery to just below the rate where it kills the patient. He asked, "Would it not be more scientific to ask why our approach has failed?" Not too soon to ask this question after a century of mutilating women, I would say. The title of this editorial, appropriately, is "Breast cancer: have we lost our way?"4 by Walter Last © 2004 Basically, all types and combinations of conventional breast cancer treatment appear to result in the same low long-term survival rates. The only conclusion that can be drawn from this is that conventional treatment does not improve long-term survival rates. Even worse, Website: Michael Baum, MD, a leading British breast cancer surgeon, found that breast cancer surgery http://www.health-science-spirit.com tends to increase the risk of relapse or death within three years. He also linked surgery to accelerating the spread of cancer by stimulating the formation of metastases in other parts of the body.5JUNE – JULY 2004 www.nexusmagazine.com NEXUS • 25

The Diabetes Industry Todays diabetes industry is a massive community that has grown step by step from its dubious origins in the early 20th century. In the last 80 years it has become enormously successful at shutting out competitive voices that attempt to point out the fraud involved in modern diabetes treatment. It has matured into a religion. And, like all religions, it depends heavily upon the faith of the believer. So successful has it become that it verges on blasphemy to suggest that, in most cases, the kindly high priest with the stethoscope draped prominently around his neck is a charlatan and a fraud. In the large majority of by Thomas Smith © 2004 cases, he has never cured a single case of diabetes in his entire medical career.

Diabetes, which had a per-capita incidence of 0.0028% at the turn of the century, had by 1933 zoomed 1,000% in the United States to become a disease seen by many doctors. 8 This disease, under a variety of aliases, was destined to go on to wreck the health of over half the American population and incapacitate almost 20% by the 1990s.9 In 1950, the medical community became able to perform serum insulin assays. These assays quickly revealed that this new disease wasnt classic diabetes; it was characterised by sufficient, often excessive, blood insulin levels. The problem was that the insulin was ineffective; it did not reduce blood sugar. But since the disease had been known as diabetes for almost 20 years, it was renamed30 • NEXUS www.nexusmagazine.com JUNE – JULY 2004

These include pneumonia, urinary tract infection, sepsis, malaria, legionnaires disease, syphilis, chlamydia, typhoid, diphtheria, HIV, rheumatic fever and herpes (Chuang). While the psy- chiatric sequelae to these infections are noncontroversial, even so they are rarely screened for if the initial presentation is made to a mental health professional. Moreover, the signifi- cance of some of these infections may date back to prenatal development. Research done at the Johns Hopkins Childrens Center and published in the Archives of General Psychiatry in 2001 found that mothers with evidence of herpes simplex type 2 infection at the time of pregnancy had children almost six times more likely to develop schizophrenia later (schizophrenia develops at different ages, but usually some time after puberty).

Typically, the greatest difficulties in communication will occur when one is questioning something already "known" to be true. On matters of underlying model unifies the principle, the confidence behind established ideas can be so high that discussion itself may seem quite senseless. This difficulty is aggravated by fragmentation of the process nuclear forces, by which information is gathered and evaluated. magnetism and The specialisation of intellectual inquiry carries with it certain risks when assumptions within one discipline rest upon prior assumptions in other disciplines. No one can be an gravity as expert on everything; and when considering possibilities outside ones personal expertise, it is only natural to defer to what specialists in other studies claim to know. But what are manifestations of a the consequences of this when theoretical suppositions, though perceived as fact, cannot account for compelling new fields of data? near-instantaneous Given the extreme fragmentation of established science today, it is difficult to imagine that the enterprise as a whole could ever "correlate all its contents".

Electric Universe is an holistic answer to myopia—that disinclination to acknowledge the existence of something, that narrowing of vision which naturally accompanies the frag- mentation of knowledge and learning. For those with the courage to see clearly, the required "unlearning" of fashionable ideas carries no real cost whatsoever. The terror Lovecraft envisioned is only the first rush of uncertainty, when ideas long taken for granted are thrown into question by facts and simple reasoning previously ignored. The "piecing together of dissociated knowledge" will only require us to confront the deep contradictions in things that experts have long claimed to know.

Such craters are universally misinterpreted as impact craters. The sinuous channels are wrongly classified as riverbeds or lava channels. Minutes or hours of electrical scarring can produce a surface like that of the Moon, which is later interpreted in ad hoc fashion to be billions of years old. Hemispheric differences in cratering are expected in this model. And for the sceptics, subdued electric arc machining of a planet-sized body continues to this day on Jupiters innermost moon, Io. See the news items on the website http://www.holoscience.com for many predictions about the discoveries that were verified as close-up images of Io became available.

The A simple calculation shows that the sub-particles that form an electron must travel at a speed far in excess of the speed of light—some 2.5 million light-years per second, or from here to the far side of the Andromeda galaxy in one second! So the elec- trostatic force must act at a speed which is almost infinite on our scale for the electron to be stable. It is the stable orbital resonances of these sub-particles, both within and between particles, that give rise to the phenomena of protons, neutrons, electrons and atoms. Other denizens of the par- ticle "zoo" are merely transient resonant states of the same charged sub-particles. The so-called "creation" of matter from energetic photons is an illusion in which pre-existing matter is reorganised into new resonant states that give the impression that a particle has suddenly materialised. Antimatter is a misnomer since it, too, is formed from the same sub-particles as "normal" matter, except that the total charge is mirrored.

However, mostin a universe where the fastest force or signal was restricted to the textbooks go on to use the word "matter" in place of "mass". But nowhere has it been shown that mass and matter are interchange- able. In fact, we are entirely ignorant of what constitutes the mass of an object. So it is inadmissible to imply that energy and matter are interchangeable. The ultimate expression of this idea led to the nonsense of the Big Bang. It seems simpler and more sensible to suggest that both nuclear and chemical energy is released or absorbed by the rearrangement of the resonant orbits of charged particles. It is then common sense to suggest that mass is the measured response of a system of charged particles to an external electrostatic force. The more massive an object, the more the electrostatic force con- tributes to the elastic deformation of its protons, neutrons and electrons rather than their acceleration. This is the phenomenon seen in particle accelerators and conventionally attributed to rela- tivistic effects. But relativity reduces to classical physics in a uni- verse where the electrostatic force has near-infinite speed. The first question to be asked is: "If it is that simple, why hasnt it been thought of long ago?" The answer seems to lie in the propensity for mathematical theory to supersede common sense and observation. There is also a problem of language when mathematicians attempt to provide real meaning for their symbols.52 • NEXUS www.nexusmagazine.com JUNE – JULY 2004

THE WHITE POWDER GOLD OF THE ANCIENTS S ince his latest book, Lost Secrets of the Sacred Ark, was published in February 2003, best-selling author Sir Laurence Gardner has been giving worldwide lec- tures about the rediscovery of arcane knowledge—in particular, the extraordinary powers of white powder gold. When gold and platinum-group metals are transformed into the monatomic state, a fine Historian and white powder is produced. This substance was used by pharaohs and kings of the ancient world. It was also part of the secret knowledge of mediaeval alchemy and the Knights best-selling author Templar. Research on this has been forging ahead, and some amazing properties of high- spin monatomic elements have now been scientifically confirmed. Laurence Gardner This has huge and potentially revolutionary implications. Humanity now has within its reach a potential cure for cancer without drugs or surgery, an environment-friendly discusses the alternative to fossil fuels, a means to transform human consciousness, the possibility of low or zero-gravity flight, space travel by manipulation of space-time, and access to other powers of white dimensions (which scientists have now proved to be real). powder gold, the In this interview conducted at Growing Needs Bookshop in Glastonbury, England, Laurence talked about some of the latest developments in this field.

In addition, work is under way on the use of gold in cancer treatment". Atasha McMillan (AM): Are the research tests for this being done mostly in America? LG: Theyre being done all over. Scientific journals from Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Spain, France, Singapore, Israel, Britain and America are all commenting in this regard, with headlines such as "The Amazing Properties of Monatomic Gold". There are no limi- tations on this now. Singapore University is making great progress with gold in cancer treatment, and Rice University, Texas, has reported amazing success in recent remedial trials with nano-gold.
