    • EditorialNEXUS MAGAZINE Volume 15, Number 3 I have been a busy boy of late. For weeks, I have spent all my spare time scanning 20 years worth of NEXUS back issues, articles, news items and reviews into the computer. The final result has been a single PDF file for each edition, article, news section, reviews APRIL – MAY 2008 PUBLISHED BY section, etc. These PDF files are text searchable, and are free of advertisements. You can NEXUS Magazine UK access these electronic back issues and articles via two methods. EDITOR The first is via our brand new website with a secure shopping cart. Although NEXUS Duncan M. Roads was among the first to have a website in Australia, I have done little to update the style or CO-EDITOR content layout over the past decade, and so the long-awaited and promised overhaul has Catherine Simons now been effected. As well as looking modern and pretty (which means those flashing ASSISTANT EDITOR/SUB-EDITOR rainbow lines have now gone from the home page), our new-look website offers a lot Ruth Parnell more to readers. Apart from the selection of free articles, you can now purchase any back OFFICE ADMIN/EDITORS ASSISTANTS issue, article or review, etc. as an electronic download directly into your own computer. Jenny Hawke; Susie Foster The other way to access these electronic NEXUS files is to buy our new compilation UK OFFICE ADMIN DVD. We are calling it "NEXUS: The First 20 Years" and, as you can guess, it contains Marcus Allen; Alex Allen all the back issues going back to volume 1, number 1, published in 1987. Apart from CONTRIBUTORS THIS ISSUE looking attractive on a bookshelf, the main benefit of this DVD is that you can pop it into Prof. Michel Chossudovsky; Stephen Lendman;Ramiel Nagel; Walter Laufs; Angela Donovan and any computer and search the actual contents of the thousand-odd files. How good is that?Andrew Donovan; Thane Heins; Philip Coppens; Following the huge popularity and success of last years NEXUS Conference, I am Gennady Belimov plus Project Camelot; already making plans for this years. So far I can announce that the 2008 NEXUS Ted Twietmeyer; Michael E.

No longer should people suffering from gum disease or tooth infections have the truth of the real causes of these afflictions hidden from them.

I wondered to myself, "Is this a tooth cavity?" cause of dental Days, weeks and months went by, and to our horror the spot grew and grew. Every day I would look at my daughters teeth with dreaded fear as this cavity rapidly progressed and cavities and gum other teeth began to decay. Being a natural parent, which includes keeping my daughter free from chemicals in the forms of processed junk foods, Western drugs and vaccinations, I was disease is lack of extremely concerned with taking my precious little girl to a dentist for a dental treatment. Wanting to avoid traumatic anaesthesia and surgery for my daughter and not wanting to proper nutrition, have her teeth pulled left me in a grave dilemma: either I had to subject her to a dental but remineralising treatment, which to me was inappropriately violent for a small child who was not experiencing any pain or suffering, or I had to find the real cause of cavities. Only with the kinds of through grace, persistence and hard work did I find a cure, and I share an important part of it in this article. At the peak of my daughters tooth decay, her teeth disintegrated so foods originally rapidly that the one decayed tooth crumbled apart within a few weeks time. Meanwhile, I was diagnosed with four new cavities, and I was not prepared to have more eaten by indigenous synthetic materials added to my overburdened body. Also, these four cavities did not even address the places on my teeth where I felt a great deal of sensitivity: on the sides of many people can prevent of my molars near the gum lines—a condition which I now know is called abfraction. Today I write nearly three years later. My teeth, once sensitive and loose in my mouth, and even reverse are now firmly embedded and strong. The sensitive spots have hardened dramatically. these problems. Although my daughters teeth continued to decay to some degree for a while, her teeth have protected themselves. Even with two teeth worn to the gum line, she has no pain, no sign of any infection and no problem eating hard foods like peanuts. These results are not by way of some special product or dental treatment, but by food alone. Your Teeth are Not Designed to Decay I started to find hope when I read and re-read the research of the worlds greatest dentist, Dr Weston A. Price. In 1915, he was appointed the first research director of the National Dental Association (its name was changed a few years later to the American Dental Association). Dr Price did not seek to find the injurious factors that were causing cavities in his patients, but instead sought to understand why indigenous people around by Ramiel Nagel © 2008 the world were immune to cavities. (Note: Not all indigenous people are totally immune to cavities, but many groups are.) In the early 1930s, he began a multi-year survey of Los Gatos, California, USA indigenous peoples around the planet to seek the true nature of their immunity to cavities. About 70 years ago, in the very same Journal of the American Dental Association that now Email: yourreturn@gmail.com promotes amalgam fillings, fluoride and other chemical treatments for teeth, Dr Price revealed the formula needed to cure cavities. He wrote regarding his field studies: Website: "All groups having a liberal supply of minerals, particularly phosphorus, and a liberal http://www.curetoothdecay.com supply of fat-soluble activators had 100 per cent immunity to dental caries."1 Dr Price visited the people of such places as the high plateaus of the Andes, the isolatedAPRIL – MAY 2008 www.nexusmagazine.com NEXUS • 29

Against the backdrop of todays electromagnetic environment, this catchword denotes an analogous situation in which fields of differing frequencies and intensities interfere with one another. This physicist and Hence, e-smog is the umbrella term denoting environmental pollution due to electromagnetic fields and radiation. alternative health Due to personal circumstances that I was unable to influence, my life took a most practitioner turned unexpected turn in 1972 when my first wife, Margret, had to undergo a severe operation.

This was a mystery to us, which even the specialists were unable to solve let alone understand. When asked to explain what was going on with Margret, their technology when standard reply was, "Shell be fine" or "Youve got to be patient; this takes time". In my estimation, these statements were a reflection of the specialists appalling researching how to incompetence, and my subsequent research would prove that my scepticism of the doctors diagnoses was alarmingly justified.

Then, one day, we were given the fateful biological stress diagnosis which would change my life forever: vegetative dystonia. This, then, was the ominous verdict, the explanation (in my view, it was more of an caused by embarrassing excuse than a serious diagnosis) for my wifes unremitting debility. This diagnosis, issued by a so-called "specialist", brought home the message of just how electromagnetic much—or, rather, how little—it takes for orthodox medicine to be at a total loss for words (i.e., a proper diagnosis) and for an adequate cure. A trusted friend suggested we contact a pollution. naturopath, which we did. At our first interview, I immediately noticed that his overall approach differed fundamentally from the way orthodox medicine would have handled the situation. It seemed logical to me that as he set out to determine the root cause of my wifes deplorable condition, he would also consider the environment. This was my first contact ever with a naturopath who also happened to be a baubiologist (building biologist). This and subsequent contacts with naturopaths were the determining factors which helped me decide to turn my back on orthodox medicine for good. My next step was to go back to school and study to become a naturopath and a baubiologist. I graduated in both fields, having studied physics and medicine at university earlier in my life. This move would prove to be the foundation stone for my future research. Unfortunately, my by Walter Laufs newly acquired knowledge was of no help to my wife.

Sceptic that I was (and still am in many ways), nothing the Indian avatar had prepared me for what the Naadis showed me that day: proof that my souls destiny had been etched in staggering detail, by someone who could never have known me, countless Shiva about 5,000 years ago, on a leaf of all things—one that related to me, and me alone. years ago. Naadi palm-leaf readings Yes, in India they have leaves that can do all that, and do it every day for hundreds of other people in just the same way—and, as we found out, do a whole lot more as well. For these are not just any old leaves: the inscriptions on them were first dictated thousands of years ago by several great Indian Rishis or sages (in our case, Sri Kausika), since which time they have lain dormant—at their choice—awaiting the exact moment of their predestined rendezvous with whomsoever they belong to.

    • Sacred Relics or Alien Artefacts? A lthough researchers have written dozens of books and hundreds of articles about crystal skulls, few have attempted to explain the origin and purpose of these sculptures. For some, the crystal skulls are 19th-century "hoaxes"; for others, they are extraterrestrial artefacts; while yet others believe they are remnants of a lost civilisation. The mysterious Perhaps the most likely explanation is that they are part and parcel of the ancient cultures, particularly the Mayan, that existed in the area of Central America where they crystal skulls are were found. Could it be that these skulls were one of the most important relics in the likely to have sacred temple complexes? Crystal skulls speak to the imagination, but are some of these skulls and their stories too good to be true? originated in The English artist Damien Hirst focused his 2007 exposition "Beyond Belief" around a platinum skull completely covered by 8,601 diamonds weighing 1,106 carats. "For the Central America Love of God" is a life-sized cast of a human skull containing a single large diamond in the middle of the forehead, reportedly worth US$4.2 million alone. Hirst financed the project and may have himself, and estimated its cost as between £10 and £15 million (approx. US$20–US$30 million). It is the most expensive piece of contemporary art ever created. He later sold performed an the skull to an unnamed investment group for £100 million (approx. US$200 million). The fourth instalment of the Indiana Jones movie, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of important role in the Crystal Skull, has Indy in a race against Soviet agents to find a crystal skull. In an reenacting the early episode of the television series Stargate SG-1, a crystal skull artefact, left behind by an ancient extraterrestrial civilisation, was used to transport people between Earth and the Mayans creation aliens home world. Crystal skulls have therefore served Hollywood and the entertainment industry well. But Tinseltowns plotlines are very much copied from myth and existing theories about crystal skulls—one of which was insured for US$500,000, and this was 30 years ago. But what are they? networking their The crystal skulls began their slow climb to fame in the 1980s, largely through researcher Joshua Shapiros meeting Sandra Bowen and Nick Nocerino, who had a crystal temple complexes. skull named Sha-Na-Ra in their possession. Slowly, Shapiro became exposed to a number of other skulls, with names such as the Mayan Crystal Skull, the Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull and the Texas Crystal Skull (also known as Max, supposedly given to the people of Guatemala by a Tibetan healer). In March 1989, Bowen, Shapiro and Nocerinos Mysteries of the Crystal Skulls Revealed was released. The book created a vehicle through which the authors were able to "meet" several more skulls, with names such as Windsong, Rainbow, Madre, Synergy and even ones named Skully and ET. ET is a smoky quartz skull found in the early 20th century in Central America. It was given its nickname because its pointed cranium and by Philip Coppens © 2008 exaggerated overbite resemble those of an alien being (and the skull is somewhat similar PO Box 13722 to the alien-looking one that Indiana Jones needs to find). ET is part of the private North Berwick EH39 4WB collection of Joke (pronounced "Yo-kay") Van Dieten, who tours with her skulls to share United Kingdom the healing powers she believes they possess.

Walsh and some of her colleagues have largely presented Having established these facts, however, Walsh then argued Boban as a charlatan, but theyve failed to report that Boban was known to have owned genuinely ancient artefacts as well as a collection of rare books and early Mexican manuscripts. He had even written a scientific study, "Documents pour server à lhistoire du Mexique" ("Documents to serve the history of Mexico") (1891). Furthermore, he personally crusaded against frauds and fakes, such as in 1881 when he spoke out against forgeries that were being made in the suburbs of Mexico City. Would he shoot himself in the foot that same year by listing a fraudulent crystal skull in his catalogue? Mentions of the German connection and claims of Bobans dishonesty come from a single letter from one of Bobans competitors, Wilson Wilberforce Blake. He wrote how they should buy from him, not Boban who was "not honest", and he made accusations that the skull Boban had sold was a forgery, insinuating that the skull had been made in Germany instead.

    • A Meeting in an Anomalous Zone T he first time I heard about the unusual boy named Boriska was from stories of the participants of an expedition to an anomalous zone in the north of Volgograd Province, known in our country as the Medveditskaya Ridge. "Imagine, when everyone was sitting around the bonfire in the evening, this little boy, about seven years old, suddenly and loudly demanded silence: he was going to tell us about the A Russian boy who inhabitants of Mars and about their trips to Earth," said one of the witnesses who shared his impressions. "Well, someone was still chatting in a low voice, and then the boy has spoken of strictly demanded our full attention, or else there would be no story." And so the other conversations died off. And this is why: the round-faced child with previous lives on the big eyes, in a summer T-shirt and a cool baseball cap, completely unafraid of the adults, began an unbelievable story—about the Martian civilisation, about megalith-cities Mars, past and and Martian spaceships, about flights to other planets, and about the country of Lemuria on Earth, the life of which he knew about personally, having at some point flown here future cosmic from Mars to this huge continent in the middle of the ocean and where he had friends… cataclysms and Many were shocked at two things. First, the unusual knowledge that a seven-year-old should not have had, and, second, the speech of Boriska was not at the level of a child in extraterrestrials the first grade. He used such terminology, details and facts from the pasts of Mars and the Earth that everyone was impressed. Only from the emotional outbursts could you tell that visiting our planet this proper and sensible speech was from a child. "Why did Boriska talk like this?" wondered my interlocutor. "Apparently, he was has captured provoked by his surroundings at the expedition camp.

"More like it years ago. was the memory of the past, memories from his past reincarnations. These sorts of details cant be imagined; they must be personally known." The words about the memories of past reincarnations decided everything: I understood that I had to meet Boriska. Now, after meeting with him and his parents, I am trying to put everything together in order to understand the mystery of the birth of this young being. Boriskas Mothers Recollections Its curious that Boriska appeared in the world in the city of Volzhk, in a provincial maternity hospital, although on his birth certificate, in the section for place of birth, it says instead "Zhirnovsk, Volgograd Province" in the place of registration. His birthdate is 11 by Gennady Belimov January 1996 at 8.30 am. That may say something to an astrologer. © 2004–05 His parents are good and kind people.

Elephants are the largest known land mammals and also have a high degree of intelligence. Could it also be that megalithic monuments such as those in England (Stonehenge), France, Egypt, Easter Island, the Orkney Islands (see fig. 4) and elsewhere were constructed by an ancient race of giants? To our race as human beings, these stones appear incredibly massive—and they are. It is universally accepted that these massive stones and blocks require some type of mechanical advantage to handle and erect them.

He suggests that cross-pegged curved wooden "lobes" were fitted radially around each block of stone, weighing an average 2,500 kg with approximate dimensions of one cubic metre, with four quadrants forming the pulley drum. A hoisting rope was tied to one of the pegs and wrapped around the drum until it was fully loaded with rope. The free end of the rope was then attached to a shaduf, an ancient type of crane, a class-one lever. Three ropes were probably wound to share the load. The load lay inside the pulley and the entire pulley wheel—a class-two lever— could then be hoisted higher using ropes Inspired by the research of René Schwaller guided by a grooved bearing stone.

They have identified the pattern by which a scare unfolds, manufac- tured by "pushers" and denied by "blockers", with both of these protagonists changing camp when it suits themselves. There are seven attributes of a scare. A real problem becomes exaggerated, often by extrapolating from it to include something else. The threat must be universal and con- tain a strong element of uncertainty. It must seem scientifically plausible and also be pro- moted by the media. The crisis arrives when the threat is acknowledged by the govern- ment. Finally, the truth emerges. To show how a scare pans out, Booker and North analyse some of the food crises of the 1980s–1990s: in the UK, the "killer eggs" of the salmonella outbreak; soft cheese "lysteria hysteria"; BSE/CJD; E. coli conta- oil-producing nations will reach their "peak mination of meat and cheese; and more.
