Three 70s “classic rock” bands, each releasing major “return to form” albums over the summer. Each seemingly revived like the Phoenix…and each sharing this “hypnotic” graphic motif.
This week, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers‘ “Hypnotic Eye” debuts as the #1 album on the Billboard US chart…1st time in 38 years.
Is this just a “coincidence”…a synchronicity…or a “meme”…are we collectively looping a hypnotic state consciousness that is reflected in the arts? Is pop culture is a reflector of the state, or a state of reflection?
“Like shadow people in shadow lands
Shadow people in shadow land
Shadow people in shadow land
Waiting for the sun to be split over there
I ain’t got any shadow at all” -Tom Petty, “Shadow People” from Hypnotic Eye…hmmm!
Hollywood Resurrection: Classic Rock and the Hypnosis Meme
I like to note memes in the popular culture because they generally hold some nuggets about the collective state of humans. The meme, that modern application for the Jungian archetypal pattern recognition and retrieval—call it software—operates on the perceptual and/or subliminal levels of consciousness. It “swims” in the streams of consciousness and charges emotional, kinetic, and visceral responses which, in turn, aggregate energies to a conditioned response. The term was coined by evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins in 1976—long before the nascent internet was made public. It means (from the Greek, mimeme- to mime, mimic; an “imitated thing”
If modern hyper-media produces chunks of coded information that either predict, or conform, behavioral and perceptual patterns, then certainly the “pop culture”, especially music, is the most viral agent to notice such patterns. Popular culture is, indeed, formulated and dispensed to the “public” as ongoing re-programming. Certainly since the time of the Beatles and the explosion of the rock music era, no better carrier of cultural upheavals has been formulated than culture driven by sound, images, and (often hidden) philosophical embeds. The Beatles, you may recall, were brazen enough to place Aleister Crowley (The Beast/666) on the “Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” cover.
Sixties and seventies rock culture created vast opportunities for media moguls to “amplify” the message to a generation literally raised by the electronosphere of TV, electric music, mass-produced print, and the more tactile responses of fashion, language, and behaviors. Psychologist, N. K. Humphrey’s has suggested that “memes should be considered as living structures, not just metaphorically.” Thus, the messages, forms, and medium constantly shift, convolute, and evolve (fitting to Dawkins’ own evolutionary theories). We now live in the day of the “nugget”: where memes fly by in rapid succession and are custom formed for a particular “affinity group”, yet touch on the larger collective culture.
I began to notice a “meme”, over the course of the last few months related specifically to three “classic” rock bands from the 1970s. In each case, these bands are “resurrecting” their images and reclaiming their mantles in the rock music pantheon. In each case, these bands—all over 40 years running—seek to shed the image of being little more than “oldies acts” or even “cover bands” of their material. In each case, the bands were culturally significant “change agents” in their respective heydays and are reclaiming their “relevance” and artistic statures. Each band, although not natives to LA/Hollywood, have largely been based there and produced their music there. In each case, there is a visual “hook” to the meme of hypnosis.
The rock-jazz-pop band, Chicago began in 1967, releasing their debut LP, “Chicago Transit Authority” in 1969. The album was a masterpiece of rock-jazz fusion that featured significant commentary on the political upheavals of the time. The song, “Questions: 67 & 68” featured an audio collage of the 1968 Chicago riots with the chant: “…the whole world’s watching…the whole world’s watching…” over heavily distorted guitar feedback and rising, ominous horn blasts. Chicago was, in the day, a band who understood the power of music to a culture. While Chicago has continued to echo their city namesake, they transplanted to Los Angeles where they built their reputation as the house band at the Bitter End. Over time, the band lost its original rock roots (after the accidental “Russian Roulette” suicide of leader/guitarist, Terry Kath), and by the early nineties was considered a pop or soft rock band, whose fortunes declined as the music charts moved to punk, in turn “grunge”, then hiphop.
Chicago, in 2014, needed to revive their artistic “cred”, and “NOW” features some harder-edged music, including the extremely modern production styles of “Naked in the Garden of Allah” and “More Will Be Revealed” , both co-penned by founding member, Robert Lamn.
Chicago attempted this return to roots first, in 1994, when they went into seclusion with producer, Peter Wolf, to record “The Stone of Sisyphus” — a jazzier, more rock-oriented album that was rejected by Warner Brothers Records, and resulted in Chicago departing the label, and the departure of guitarist, Dwayne Bailey. The album was later released in 2008 on Rounder Records—after two decades of the band being largely a touring ensemble playing their past hits and releasing albums like “Big Band” and “The Christmas Album”, along with several live recordings.
The band, with a revamped line-up, stood to gain much with a powerful new “statement” in their 2014 release. Their image has largely been shadowed by their 1980s era music produced by pop producer, David Foster. While continuing to sell records, they also lost their core rock sound in favor of mainstream “adult contemporary” radio-friendly hits. Even with a series of other producers, the band lost their “edge”, but sustained popularity because of their superb musical skills, and despite the departure of founding member and lead singer, Peter Cetera. “NOW” features a cover that seemingly “captures” the visual eye, even as these new songs seek to grab the ears and hearts of the listeners. Oddly, the re-styled Chicago logo (the band’s visual icon since the beginning) looks oddly: HYPNOTIC. Here we have a mandala motif and commentary on the media itself:
“This televised democracy (we seek protection, we seek protection)
Such adolescent fantasy (we seek refuge, we seek refuge)
Random access to content
I think we’re naked in the garden of Allah (Allah)
We are artless, we are violent
We are poison, we are broken
Pie in the sky and gingerbread (we seek protection, we seek protection)
We never meant to get in bed (we seek refuge, we seek refuge)
With wannabe intelligentsia
I think we’re naked in the garden of Allah”
– Robert Lamn, “Naked In The Garden Of Allah”, from Chicago XXXVI: “NOW”
YES-”Heaven and Earth”
YES, like Chicago, needed to stabilize, and reclaim their mantle. The band has toured tirelessly for three years with the current line-up, including successful cruise tours featuring a “progressive rock” package of onboard concerts, smaller jam sessions, and numerous guest acts, including members of Genesis, ELP, King Crimson and other “prog” luminaries. The challenge lay ahead in the question: could they successfully translate this band back into a viable recording unit and achieve the standards of “Fragile”, Close To The Edge”, and their breakout 1971, “The YES Album”? In early 2014, they met in Los Angeles and began recording, with producer Roy Thomas Baker, the tracks for what became “Heaven & Earth”.
“One glimpse, way out
Of the ethereal
Or just imagination
Venturing to find
The victory of game
It’s all a state of mind’ -Jon Davison, “Subway Wall” from YES: “Heaven & Earth”
Very much both a return to form, and oddly sounding more like YES around their 1970-era sound of “Time And A Word”; they merge the high tenor vocals and mystical lyrics of the Jon Anderson-era with a more compressed delivery. Howe’s signature guitars are more forefront, keyboards, elegantly played by Downes, tend to serve the songs rather than dominate, as they had in the Rick Wakeman and Patrick Moraz eras.
The songs are shorter (longest , “Subway Walls” clocking in at just over 9 minutes), crisply produced, and sounding cohesive and more organic than any YES album in two decades, “Heaven & Earth” moves YES back to their creative heights. Interestingly, YES has, since the “Fragile” album used very conscious imagery to convey their particular message, largely (though not exclusively) through the graphic designs of Roger Dean, who designed their logo and has done many of their album covers and stage designs.
For “Heaven & Earth” there was a conscious decision to include Dean in the overall “arc” of the album’s conceptual thrust. Steve Howe states:
“I don’t know whether it’s a concept record in the true sense, but basically Roger Dean and I were talking about different things and sometimes it helps to get Roger fired up about ideas that we can draw from. In a way, the parallel of saying ‘Heaven And Earth’ is the same as saying good and bad, yin and yang, up and down, left and right. They’re two extremes, but I think the way Roger and I liked it was that in fact the Earth is a physical place where you can measure stuff and you can do quantum physics.”
Those who grew up in the classic rock era (1970s) are likely aware of the mystical imagery, streaming consciousness, and deliberate hypnotic devices via music, rhythms, imagery, lighting, and later, video screens. The world is a multi-sensory experience which these children of Marshal McLuhan both understood and gained the technology to exploit.
The early masters, The Beatles (or their “creators”) forged the path to a musical experience which opera (the first multimedia form) only glimpsed. The Grateful Dead certainly perfected the mass-hypnosis rock event at Gizeh, Cairo Egypt in 1978, when they produced a “standing wave” trance state live. That it could be used to generate social and psychological effects is part of why we are both fascinated by—and also need to be wary of—the intended memes that are generated.
That popular music, especially rock (and especially The Beatles) is a well-financed, purpose-driven media mechanism that has been exploited to drive social changes and create hypnotic states is not new, nor is it a modern concept: think of the Roman Empire and the campaigns of “Bread and Circuses”that were used for mind control. It is also not controversial to those who have studied it at depth…and THAT is the subject for another blog post. Think upon these things.

Three days after posting this article on Facebook, and considerable commenting on the Facebook post, Virginia (Ginny) Gunther and Bob Dobbs/Neveritt/Dean recorded this podcast to critique my findings. I am flattered they felt it so important to comment. you decide for yourself. Like ION they use many “trigger words”, double-speak and convolutions to maintain a semantic state of unbalance.
To the listeners, readers, and viewers of OffPlanet Radio: A Brief Explanation of RnA Drops and the controversy between the former business partners. Where do we stand today? In 2012 I began promoting the product known as RnA Drops, marketed by a company called NETWORK PARTNERS, LLC, which is owned by Matthew David Hurtado. After hosting two interviews with the alleged proprietors of the RnA Drops formula, Dr. Carolyn Dean, MD, ND and her husband Bob Neveritt (a/k/a as variously “Bob Dean” (not Cmdr. Bob Dean of UFO disclosure fame) and “Bob Dobbs”), who do business as NEW CAPSTONE, INC. I became an affiliate marketer through Mr. Hurtado’s company. My promotion of the drops was based on several factors including my trust in my friend, talk show host, James Martinez; the experiences I was having using the drops, and the promise that the drops were part of an overall plan to introduce a new form of holistic health products to humanity via the internet.
Dr. Carolyn Dean, MD, ND and husband, Robert Dean a/k/a Neveriit Dobbs, etc.
Implicit in this overall marketing scheme was the legitimacy of the so-called “non-physical entity” named ION, who was channeled by a man from the Atlanta, GA area named “JW”. “JW” was presented as being a multi-billionaire tech entrepreneur and jet-setting businessman. From October of 2009 to December of 2011, ION appeared on the CASH FLOW Radio Show, hosted by James Martinez, on the Achieve Radio Network. In December of 2011 ION allegedly “went stealth” and disappeared from the airwaves and all public presence. Interestingly enough: this time line intersects perfectly with the pending incarceration of one Jeffrey Wallace Edwards of Bremen, GA, who is believed to be “JW”, the voice of ION, on Federal charges of 11 counts of money laundering, 17 counts of wire fraud, and counts of mail fraud totaling over US$7 million of loss to investors in various schemes.(see: http://www.bizjournals.com/atlanta/news/2011/12/01/bremen-man-sentenced-for-7m.html) Rumors of this colossal fraud circulated around the internet, on various forums for several years and were openly dismissed by Dr. Carolyn Dean, MD, ND and Bob Neveritt in various scenarios. The most opulent dismissal claims that “there are 11-13 “JWs” who appear to have the same personality, which can all channel ION, and who overlap realities by means of bi-location/tri-location and dimensional worm holing (to paraphrase “the company line” from Bob and his various media shills). In the absence of ION, Bob continued his marketing activities on Achieve Radio Network by starting his own show, “PAY DAY”, which featured archive recordings of ION, along with his long-winded dissertations on Marshal McLuhan, his own treatise on existentialism known as “The Five Bodies”, his “Tiny Note Chart”, and the self-documenting Time Line wherein he regales the audience of his reminiscences of historical figures between 1922 – 1949 and forward. Neveritt/Dobbs claims to be 93 years old as of this writing. (See the OffPlanet Radio interview with Bob Neveritt Pt. 1 and Pt. 2 of July 2012 for more on this) In March of 2014, Matthew David Hurtado announced that he had parted company with Dr. Carolyn Dean and Bob Neveritt (d/b/a NEW CAPSTONE, INC.) and by extension, with J.W. Edwards, who he states is their business partner after receiving a report from Everett Stern of Tactical Rabbit, a business intelligence company located in Philadelphia, PA. (see the report here). A volley of accusations between the two corporate parties has now ensued for nearly five months, and played out across the radio shows, email lists, forums, and private conversations. I want to assure my audiences that I am still investigating and researching every aspect of this situation. I put my own integrity on the line, as this is the ONLY product I have ever endorsed or advertised on any of may radio shows since 2009. Like you, I have HUGE questions regarding the deceptions that appear to have been foisted on the audiences of numerous radio networks, websites, and marketing programs related to the RnA product line. I have concerns about the efficacy, safety, and over-all ethics of this group of promoters. This in not an ad hominem attack, nor is it being done without great introspection as to my own motives and, apparently, the deception I also labored under. As to the FACTS: there are many, and yet, there remain a number of “holes” in the story. The largest “hole” appears to be the reappearance of ION on radio in November of 2013 during what was promoted as “BOBFest”, wherein the self-aggrandizing Mr. Neveritt aspired to hold forth for 7 days (144 hours) of live radio from November 22-29th 2014. ION then began to appear more regularly in January, 2014 on the PAY DAY programs—even as J.W. Edwards is still incarcerated at Atlanta (GA) Federal Penitentiary. I am still working on the details of HOW this would be possible for a prisoner inside a FEDERAL prison, but have been assured that it IS possible. I am still working through information from FBI, DOJ and Federal Corrections officials. If true, then we also have to assume that J.W. Edwards is continuing to run one of his scams while INSIDE a Federal Prison! As to the RNA Drops fiasco: there are no easy answers here, except that humans continue to be assholes! The ONE thing I do know is that the drops are legitimate. I know this because Dr. Carolyn Dean and ION did not invent them. While Bob and Carolyn have disclosed that the drops were the result of an older experiment dating back to the 1970s/8os from the Cosmic Awareness group, called the “D Cell”—they have failed to disclose that the formula, which was a barley-based water filter developed by Ralph Duby and Paul Shockley-was a closely held secret that survived the deaths of the inventors. Carolyn and Bob, as I have been told, went to great lengths to obtain the formula, which they then re-launched as “insulinose”, the i-cell, or i-block, and which was the basis for the RNA Drops formula. While they claimed to have filed a patent on the i-Cell, it appears that patent is now abandoned. I have information on the person who had the original formula, and from whom it is said, they (The Deans) obtained it. As for Matthew David Hurtado: I have had my differences with him. I paid Matthew money—$1,500— to become an RNA Affiliate in 2012. I never received solid bookkeeping from his company on my earnings from the sales of the drops, and other products, for the period 9/2012-07/2013. In July of 2013, Matthew began requiring that I (and other RNA Affiliates under his NETWORK PARTNERS, LLC) become “legal” companies with IRS Tax IDs and “legitimate” business structures. If you know anything about me, you know I am not going to do that, based on my beliefs about the IRS, CORPORATIONS, and the process of compliance to business standards which regulate and strangle legitimate personal business ventures. As result, I ceased being an RNA Affiliate, although I maintained the advertising until the end of 2013. I am still investigating the material facts behind Dr. Carolyn Dean’s company, NEW CAPSTONE, INC., and the business dealings related to convicted felon, JW Edwards (a/k/a “ION”). This is murkier than a bog in the Bayou. The Deans (a/k/a- Dr. Carolyn Dean and her consort, Bob Dobbs (Neveritt/Dean) appear to be running one of several corporations that are involved with the manufacture, marketing, and distribution of RNA Drops and other health products. The products ReMag and ReLyte, are not directly related to the RNA Drops, and are formulations of Dr. Dean (it appears) that use 3rd party formularies. The RNA Drops and ReNew Serum, do appear to be manufactured by some other operation run by two long-time associates of the Deans from a home-based operation. Despite protestations and huge amounts of hubris by the Deans, I still find no compelling evidence to support claims to the contrary—the drops may be legitimate, but the whole operation is a bit like a cosmic version of “Breaking Bad”. As to ION: the history of “channeling” (and, yes, someone is channeling an entity here) is replete with all manner of confusion, dishonesty, and spiritual deception. I have researched the history of channeling from ancient times (the Cybils of ancient Greece) to the periods of the late 16th century (Dr. John Dee and his scryer, William Kelly in the 1580s) to famous mages like St. Germaine, Caligostro, Casanova, on to the “modern era” of Jane Roberts and the Seth materials. What one finds is that there is “something there”…that said, the history shows that the CHARACTER of the individual actors (both human and “non-physical”) have a great impact on the effects of any such dealings with no-human/non-physical intelligences. History also details that in these occult interactions, there can be massive spiritual deceptions, frauds, Casanova-like schemes for money and power, even leading into eventual madness and utter disgrace of the human agents. The ION material contains many “nuggets” of arcane wisdom. It also is largely mined and regurgitated from the well-spring of existing occult knowledge, and some of the material, such as ION’s alleged Revelation chapter 23, is even plagiarized from existing copyrighted materials, which “he” then re-tooled and appropriated. For this, I have exclusive documentation that I have not yet disclosed publicly. In closing (for now): I have now spent nearly a year and a half researching the ION material. Like many others, I also was “sucked in” to the non-physical vortex of this, admittedly brilliant, charlatan. Because the actors in this whole drama (JW Edwards, Bob Dobbs, Dr. Carolyn Dean, and their sympathetic followers) have significant financial and reputitional stakes in continuing the ruse—and because they have cleverly employed multiple CORPORATION entities to secure their alleged “rights” and profits; and because against all reason, they continue to insist that the self-same JW Edwards of Bremen, GA—a convicted felon, who swindled over $6 million out of his “investors”—is NOT the same JW who channels ION; it has been daunting to pierce the veil of this elaborate scam completely. I am still investigating. And while, I do have substantial facts, and have contacted all parties involved for their various statements; there is still no definitive summary to all the shenanigans that have occurred. I am still fact checking certain aspects of this case, and am awaiting a phone conversation with Mr. Everett Stern, whom Mr. Hurtado hired to investigate both his own company and the Dean/Edwards consortium. The Deans, for their part, continue to spin, obfuscate, and churn a mixture of “medical” authority laced heavily with metaphysical distortions. We can only presume, at this juncture, that many people have fallen for a spirituality-for-profit scheme (nothing new there), that has left many thousands of people caught in the spin cycle of very brilliant, and very corrupt operators. This is witchcraft, or as the late Walter Bowart (author, “Operation Mind Control” and founder of the East Village Other, and ex-spouse of Peggy Mellon Hitchcock) termed it: “The disease of RichKraft”. This article is far from a complete vetting of all the materials I have amassed in over 18 months of personal and independent investigation, nor is this the “final word” on the subject. I have refrained from venturing beyond the scope of where my research has taken me, and I have spoken with all parties involved EXCEPT for Mr. Jeffrey Wallace Edwards, for obvious reasons. Pending verification of certain facts, and the potential for possibly more information to emerge, this is a statement to the listeners/readers/viewers to help clear up the situation of which I was a party. I intend to post much substantial material as it become viable. I am no longer using, or promoting, RNADrops. Sadly, the old adage of Jesus applies: “Ye will know them by their FRUITS.” I am saddened to have been a part of this whole fiasco. While I did not lose money, I also did not profit materially. Spiritually, I have gleaned much from all of this that I hope to impart to my readers/listeners/viewers very soon. Beware when some “non-physical” entity exhorts you to “TAKE BACK YOUR POWER”…then SELLS you a solution. I forgot that, to my own pain. You ARE Complete!

Recently on my radio show, I interviewed Mexican paranormalist and talk show host, Carlos del Angel, wherein he described a personal inner journey which resulted in receiving some very specific information regarding the next fifteen years of humanity’s struggle to throw off the “new world order. The information came, as Carlos describes, from an entity identified as his own “future self”.
Future man graphic by Randy Maugans
As outrageous as this concept sounds on first hearing it, I felt it to be compelling and not at all out of the realm of inquiry into UFOlogy and paranormal experience. I had heard this concept before from other contactees, abductees, and near death experiencers. It is a concept that breaks many of the boundaries of our present religious, scientific and metaphysical boundaries—and as such demands a bit more examination
A Brief History of Non-time
The concept of multi-dimensional existence is relatively new in the awareness of most researchers of esoteric and paranormal research. That “being-ness” can extend, simultaneously, across multiple dimensions, worlds, and life times is a challenge to the fundamental world views of most humans. Largely because of the flat space, 3-dimensional entrainment of our major social systems. Now, because these foundations of politics, religion, education, and media, are straining from the weight of their own limitations, we are seeing a groundswell of humans willing to begin embracing more extended views of their own “realities”.
Ancient cultures and religions, such as Hinduism, have presented veiled versions of multi-dimensionalism via doctrines of reincarnation and cycles of karmic balancing, but have obscured the larger concept of a multi-dimensional existence which occurs simultaneously outside the confines of a presumed space-time continuum. While the modern concepts of quantum physics, such as David Bohm’s “implicate order”or1 enfolded information fields, which exist independently of space and time; gave scientific (so-called) weight to such previously esoteric concepts; it still differentiates between “normal” states of consciousness (the explicit or “unfolded order”) and a separate “special” state, bifurcating accepted cognitive models of so called “reality”.
The level of fractiousness which has pervaded modern science in the era of the quantum model is, to say the least, extensive. Abstract mathematics based on a system of both real and imaginary numbers has spawned numerous sub-disciplines in physics and theoretical mathematics. The contemplation of such concepts, by nature, becomes wildly imaginative, and “in your face” to the horror of traditional scholars. To the average person, the concepts become too complex and subject to the constant churning of advocates and debunkers. To that end, simpler is better.
For example, in Christian theology, the frank statements made by Jesus regarding this nature of existence have been obfuscated through a mixture of linguistics and cognitive dissonance. Thus his declaration: “… Before Abraham Was, I Am” (New Testament, John 8:58) has to be explained out of its intended meaning and context by all manner of religious manipulations. But it is a simple declaration of the eternality of not just consciousness, but being-ness. The statement made to Moses by the “Burning Bush” declared, “I AM THAT IAM”, both as a fundamental existence and identity; and echoed in the Sanskrit Upanishads as soham or “I am He/That”. A statement of being-ness and causative action.
In recent times, British biochemist and researcher, Rupert Sheldrake’s morphic field theories2 built upon the earlier twentieth century concepts of Verdansky and du Chardin’s noosphere.3 And, again, linguistics and manipulation of cognition, confound the intuitive grasp of expansive consciousness beyond flat space. But the practicum of such concepts can be readily found in the Old Testament Prophets, Nostradamus, and the latter day works of Edgar Cayce, to name a few.
Consciousness, hence, being-ness, extends beyond the stream of linear, three dimensional existence. The connection appears to be a mode of consciousness that engages the information fields streaming between all points of an infinite matrix which seamlessly fuses past, present, and future. Because of the diffusion that occurs on the perceptual levels of humans, these simple concepts inevitably become complex and lose the intuitive feel of such simplicity.
A Matter of Degrees
In the post-World War II period “security states” of western Europe and the United States, military and intelligence agencies began looking for an “edge” in their endless intelligence/counter-intelligence efforts via protocols called “remote viewing” (RV), or psychic spying. Named as such by Stanford Research Institute scientists, Hal Putoff and Russell Targ,4 the project was an informal study which later spun off into a classified intelligence program in 1972 after psychic Ingo Swann was tested at SRI. The program ran for seven years, and was later expanded by both the Air Force and Army. A parallel project named PEAR (Princeton Engineering and Anomaly Research) ran overlapping research into RV and psychic phenomena from 1979 to 2007.
While all the “official” conclusions stemming from SRI, PEAR, and the military projects have concluded that RV and ancillary studies were effectively “non-productive”, tens of millions of dollars in research was expended over nearly forty years, and Army remote viewer Joseph McMoneagle,5 was awarded a military Legion of Honor commendation for “producing crucial and vital intelligence unavailable from any other source…” of over 150 data points. Thus, such dismissive conclusions should be viewed in light of the policy of “plausible deniability” for security purposes.
What is called RV is actually part of many ancient cultures, including Native American peoples, the shaman of South America and aboriginal Australia. It is even recorded in the Old Testament scriptures, whereby the prophet Elisha used RV to spy on the king of Syria, even “in his bedchamber”, to disclose military tactics to the king of Israel (see Old Testament, 2 Kings 6:8-12). RV is simply a modern term and protocol for very old and accepted methods of extended consciousness outside the constraints of the body and space-time models.
If one can cede even minor legitimacy to remote viewing, then by extension we can go the the next level which understands that consciousness extension is simply a matter of degrees in moving toward contact with a “higher intelligence” that is both part of, yet separate from the operator. Our consciousness, hence our being-ness has no limitations once we remove the barriers enforced by social, religious, and scientific dogma.
We Are Our Own Prophets
UFO contactees have been a treasure trove of information regarding extension of consciousness. Many have reported heightened psychic powers, dimensional shifts, future event foretelling, and very precise insights into scientific and mathematical concepts far beyond their own capacities. Stan Romanek, a dyslexic retail clerk with barely ninth grade education produced complex mathematical formulas6 that still puzzle experts. Peruvian contactee, Enrique Villaneuva, has written about his own contact-inspired expansion of consciousness and describes the natural telepathic process which he claims is inherent in all humans:
“The most important aspect of the contact [experience] is to expand consciousness and to realize that not only are we not alone in the universe, but we are not alone within…“7
Warnings about the now impending Earth changes have been part of the UFO research material for decades. Dr. Karla Turner8 recorded such data from interviews with abductees in the early 1990s, including warnings about earth changes. Contactees/abductees also seem to have various future views which they either received from aliens, or from their own extended psychic abilities. While the raw data is all over the map in terms of the projected probable outcomes, one point is clear: the human consciousness can “stream” between places, times, and events in the non- local universe.
Our own dimensionality remains fixed in 3-D space-time largely as a function of limited conscious processing and the perceptions that we “as humans” are limited to only one fixed perspective. While religions can argue about the survivability of a “soul” post-mortem, and science can quibble over dimensions, string theories, and quantum entanglement; the writ of preserved human literature insists we are mystical beings endowed with some type of “X factor” that occasionally manifests in inconvenient ways. The father of modern paranormal research, and skeptic, Charles Hoy Fort (for whom is termed “Fortean”), documented phenomena that seems to be linked to human consciousness, sometimes gone horribly astray.
That our consciousness is powerful is, in fact, the two-edged sword: quantum physics reminds us that observation does, in fact, alter that which is observed. Human will and participation in Universe becomes “as
if” Universe. A divine paradox that confounds the linear logic of modern mankind. In a sense, there may be no greater truth than: “I AM THAT I AM”.
Author and abduction researcher, Nigel Kerner, likewise, reminds us that our understanding of consciousness, and our own multi-dimensional nature is still very much in flux:
“Living being in this universe is thus twisted, mangled God-ness. The range of choices within each margin will be forever limited if this is a fixed system and nothing from outside it can enter…
So enter Redeemers, or “Sons of Man,” all over the universe from a situation outside. They are the great informers who constantly re-inform the “lost
sheep” (those who are still trapped in Universes of Parts in physical forms yet are still able to understand them) of the lost history and perspectives of their being and nature once upon a time when it was possible to return to the Godverse at a whim of thought.9”
This “God-ness” state, in turn, requires integrating ancient mystical writ with our own modern mythologies. Our “future selves” may be the streaming, forward and back, of a superset of consciousness, both individuated and collective in forms which allow “them” to communicate on the temporal levels. The persistence of the UFO as a modern archetype of the “future” has morphed over the last century, even as human technology was developing. The craft have shifted in design and sleekness as we ourselves have begun to take the phenomenon seriously. In our “noticing” we, it seems, shifted the objects (and the beings) into a pantheon that now embraces hundreds of “alien” races.
When we suspend the requirements for time-space and linear progression; and of concepts of Deity, both in thought and linguistics; it becomes conceivable, as well, to embrace a higher concept of WHAT our “future selves” might embody. The Kabballalist concept of yeridat ha-dorot holds for a “process of successively higher articulations of mystical thought as the process of history unfolds”.10 The understanding of “generations” itself moves seamlessly back and forth to the “I AM THAT I AM” of Moses and Jesus.
Mankind’s religious concepts of “God”, likewise impede the larger awareness that we ARE, in fact this very God we seek. Jesus answered to charges of blasphemy by stating: “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I have said you are “gods”? (New Testament John 10:34), echoing passages in Isaiah and Psalms. He repeated this concept more succinctly in reminding: “Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” (New Testament, Luke 17:21). Or, as Robert Heinlein put it: “Thou art god, I am god. All that groks is god.”11
The next evolution in consciousness clearly points to unification after eons of fractured egoic thought. Modern archetypes such as the heightened phenomena of UFO sitings, ET interactions of all types, and the blurring of distinctions between old school paranormal occurrences and modern scientific models, all indicate that humanity is preparing to merge into a holistic model that holds real potential to vastly expand not just our consciousness, but the very core of WHO and WHAT we are, and are to become.

This radio show host long been warning about the corruption, lies, financial chicanery, COINTELPRO/Disinfo spinmeisters and unseemly characters who populate so-called “alternative media”. Roxie Lopez, a well-respected journlist/talk show host outlines below how deep into the brown matter this space has sunk.
It is not news to anyone who has heard my screeds on Project Camelot, Michael Hemmingson (a/k/a “Former White Hat Operative”), or followed the tragedy of murdered blogger/MKUltra abductee, Khris Neal. I have watched first-hand the rapid decay of David Icke’s Peoples Voice Network and personally know some of the people who got screwed by PVN. Then, there is Revolution Radio: a nest of snakes that continue to promote some of the darkest agents in the webosphere. Meanwhile, it seems that the best people to present the TRUTH about all of this are the few uncorrupted souls who walked into this fray unawares…MORE TO FOLLOW THIS YEAR. -Randy Maugans

Roxy LopezFirst of all I would like to thank my listeners and viewers for their undying support and loyalty. This is exemplary of your savviness and ability to see the truth without any facts in place regarding my swift departure from the radio station known as Revolution Radio, freedomslips.com. Without you, I would not have had the courage to continue reporting the truth to a world that desperately seeks transparency. The following statements are facts surrounding my departure from Rev Radio on December 6th, 2013. Hopefully this will serve the public with suffice evidence of the accounts that took place.
Note: 2013 was the year that global media controllers moved in on any of us in alternative media that were actually making a difference. If you were any good at what you were reporting in the media,then you got attacked,smeared, fired, or you are now deceased. This is not an accident, this is an intentional operation to wear down good journalists and for the record, and I am not the only journalists that this has happened to. The attacks have been a divisive tool by the controllers to split us all up: Remember those hosts I brought over to Rev Radio, most of them are no longer my friends. They did not stand with me when this all took place.It has been a war on our minds, and last but not least, an assault on our credibility as journalists. Nothing less than a smear campaign.
My statements are as follows:
I have been an alternative media journalists, radio show host, and documentary maker for the past four years in an effort to create awareness for the public and 2013 was a very successful year for alternative media global transparency for the public. The Truth Denied had made its mark and a serious turning point was about to occur. The events that took place throughout the year seemed to be increasingly strenuous in hindsight, so I now refer to it as a “slow kill” for journalists who had integrity in their reporting. Where did it all begin?
I was contacted in 2011 by Revolution Radio to host a prime time position, but turned it down several times, as I was currently conducting radio shows in 2 prime time slots at American Freedom Radio. As I picked up momentum and listenership at AFR, I began to observe a lack of transparency regarding the stations money stream. After several months of being an AFR host, I was told by the station owner Mr. Danny Romero that if I sold advertisements on my show, I could make an income stream. I have been a volunteer from the start (meaning I did not have an income stream) so this was a no brainer. I set out to introduce myself to advertisers and found two companies that were willing to sponsor my shows, but within a week, I was fired on a Friday night right after my LIVE show aired, and to this day feel I was never given a proper explanation. AFR’s owner Danny Romero called me after the show and said “We love you but….we have to let you go, you’re fired.” (How do you fire a volunteer who raises money for your station?). What a strange concept, your fired?
I later found out that Mr. Romero wanted the sole income stream from my radio shows, so you see once I found my own advertisers, Danny Romero would have had to share some of the money with me as he had promised. I was no longer of any use for him, so he canned me.
FYI: I received a note a week ago from Sean David Morton that “Danny Romero had been busted for a meth lab at his studio. “. I cannot prove this, but I can verify that Romero’s AMERICAN FREEDOM RADIO literally vanished from the airwaves in December of 2013.
UPDATE from one of our listeners: The Danny Romero story has officially been vetted. Please feel free to read the story yourselves, yes Danny Romero owner of American Freedom Radio got busted for operating a meth lab. (Thank you to Charles Kafka)
It was at this juncture that Revolution Radio re-approached me to conduct LIVE shows, so I decided to I accept the volunteer position, as well negotiated some form of trade or exchange for my work. The final agreement that was struck between Rev Radio and THE TRUTH DENIED TALK RADIO was simple, moving forward I would receive a recorded copy of my edited version of my radio shows in exchange for conducting professional radio interviews with Freedomslips.com. Looking back, I must say that it was off to a rocky beginning with the weekly abuse from the station owner who was difficult to deal with most of the time, though he eventually provided me with my shows, and I moved forward to advertise all shows and the station on my websites and blogs, at my expense..
By 2013, the already rocky relationship with the owner Mike Ringley (aka Nighthawk) had become increasingly abusive and it was reported to me by those who volunteered at the station that Mike R was “drinking excessively in combination with prescription pills” as his health was declining. I reached out to Mike R. and asked what I could do to help, and his responses to me were full of anger and hatred towards me and all of the hosts in general, he was obviously in a downward spiral. Shortly after contact with Mike R., I was approached by station manager Joe Latoja (otherwise known as “Tones”) who was (his words not mine) calling me to ‘talk me off of the ledge’, because I had previously expressed my disappointment with the complete unprofessionalism and incompetency of the station, especially when it came to the adversarial tactics of its owner that were increasingly becoming random and abusive. Joe Tones had stated at the time that “It’s become a full time job just talking hosts off of the ledge, so many were leaving and complaining about being mistreated, so much so that he felt bad that no one ever thanked the hosts for there work” “Tones” would ask me to stay and promise to take care of my needs, which by this time were simply “Can you please keep this guy (Nighthawk) away from me?” “Tones” assured me he would handle this. This did not happen. Hawk would not stop the attacks and verbal abuse towards me.*Note: (Is ‘Tones’ Mike R.’s ‘handler’?)
Keep in mind that I never missed a show, never took a day off, worked through holidays and I was never late to my own show. I treated the “job” as though it were a paid position, as well treated all of the volunteers at RR with respect until the very end.
The escalation looked like this: (You may ask yourselves, how did I hang in there all that time?)
- Disjointed sentences, angry remarks in the radio stations private Skype chat along with random calls that all hailed from the owner Mike R. that came ‘out of the blue’ accusing me of being an incompetent idiot .
- ( Instead of responding in kind, I would ask what I could do to help, and all I received was more vial and repulsive remarks from him. I chocked it up to “Well, he is one unhappy guy, I think I will just steer clear of him.)
- Increasing technical difficulties during the live shows, and when I attempted to sort them out with the station, I would not get solutions, rather more problems and demands from the station to “get my act together”.
- By summer of 2013, I had spent in excess of 100 hours on the phone with my producer ( who goes by the name of “Amadpainter”), and ‘Tones’, as well a woman named ‘Catt”. (It was an attempt to repair any technical problems, as well a way to circumvent and prevent further communication from Mike R. and perhaps some type of intervention for the radio station for management and unity amongst the hosts, which by this time had grown to roughly 60 hosts. ‘Amadpainter’ assured me that management and volunteers at the station were speaking to ‘Hawk” on my behalf to not only keep Mike R. away from me but “ fighting to keep me at the station because my listenership was constantly increasing, and that they “needed professionals like Roxy Lopez to sustain a credibility with listeners as a whole”.
- Listeners wrote in asking if I was okay because they had seen Mike R. aka Nighthawk in the Rev Radio chat room going off on members, losing his mind, and listeners were getting concerned for my safety.
- In 2013, I had brought many hosts to the Freedomslips.com Radio station, hosts that were friends and colleagues of mine for the sole purpose of helping (my friends) to expand their public forums. Friends like Cathy Bilsky, Bernard Alvarez of the GIC, Sallie Elkordy (who in turn brought Dr. Rebecca Carley), Dr. Wil Spencer and others. I began to reach out to other Rev Radio hosts, introduce myself and let them know if there was anything I could do to help.
- By late summer, even my guests and colleagues were observing the abusive and insulting behavior coming from Mike R. and began calling me to ask what they could do to help. I had scheduled radio interviews booked out 2 months in advance, so cancelling future shows was not an option. I was compelled to pull up my bootstraps, and used the word “onward” often.
- To my dismay, the level of abuse coming from Rev Radio escalated and now station volunteers were calling to tell their side of the story, one in particular named ‘Catt’, called me several times asking for my help with Nighthawk (aka Hawk, aka Mike Ringley), that perhaps he needed “treatment’, as in ‘rehab for addicts’. Even then I was willing to help, but made it very clear that I could not be a part of the intervention, but I could put them in good hands. I later found out that every single time the station called me on the phone, CATT had recorded it. Isn’t this illegal? Right around this time, Hawk spouted out in a Skype chat room that “I don’t even drink alcohol! I don’t need help wtf!!!!” Yes one more time, I was the escape goat and the ‘bad guy’.
- I finally began to put my foot down by telling my producer ‘Amadpainter’, that I would either have to leave the station, or that ‘Hawk”,’Catt’, JustinTime aka who knows?) ” needed to stay away from me. I believed that ‘Amadpainter’ was my friend, so I began to tell him everything, which in the end turned out to be me playing right into the “game”. He turned out to be equally disloyal and fed the station managers all of my thoughts and future game plans.
- In 2013 , many hosts were walking off the air, leaving on vacations and never returning to Rev Radio, getting fired and being replaced with voices/hosts who spouted nothing but non- truths, drama, and ZERO facts to support their claims. The station was going downhill fast, being overrun with liars……..how could this happen, and why would anyone want this to happen? Nighthawk (aka Hawk, aka Mike Ringley) opened up a channel for himself and began assaulting the public LIVE on the air, calling everyone names all the way up to the President of the USA. He was clearly out of control like a bullet train without brakes! What happened to the original intent of the station, isn’t this supposed to be about the TRUTH? Love? Unity? Competition to the Mainstream junk?
- December 2013, I received a phone call from ‘Tones’, aka Joe Lantoja, aka Joe Tones, aka Joe Latona. (now the X-manager of Revolution Radio aka freedomslips.com) He let me know that he had quit Rev Radio and was calling to let me know he was taking a trip to Egypt, and upon his return, he would like to put together a new radio station, one with integrity and truth, etc. During the conversation he asked me to ‘PLEASE not quit Rev Radio, hang in there until he returned from Egypt”. He also asked that I not talk to ANYONE about his plans. He also gave me a list of who he would take from the station with him, and explained that he would like this to happen all in one day. His departing words were “This is WAR.”. The entire conversation turned out yet to be one more lie; he is still with Rev Radio behind the scenes. Just another game plan to keep me in Rev Radio’s sights.Just another head trip, psyop essentially ‘more of the same tactics’.
- Note: I have to ask WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE living in the shadows who remain faceless?
- By December 6th, 2013, my scheduled radio show with guest Dale Boswell was hijacked by RR and I walked off the air, never to return. It has not ended there, and in a future report, I will update you all of the fallout from just that one night.
2013 was the year that global media controllers moved in on any of us in alternative media that were actually making a difference. If you were any good at what you were doing, you got attacked,smeared, fired, or you are now deceased. This is not an accident, this is an intentional operation to wear down good journalists and for the record, and I am not the only journalists that this has happened to. The attacks have been a divisive tool by the controllers to split us all up: Remember those hosts I brought over to Rev Radio, most of them are no longer my friends. But that is a story for another day, and I will report on this to keep you in the know.They did not stand with me when this all took place. They said that Nighthawk was “possessed, evil , a drug addict, an alcoholic,but they would not state any of this publicly. It has been a war on our minds, and last but not least, an assault on our credibility as journalists. Nothing less than a smear campaign.A more sinister take would be the possibility that they are an agency whose sole purpose is to slander and dis-empower good journalists.
Would you like to know who stood with me? It may surprise you to learn that my guests (and I mean all of them) my TTD team, and last but not least, you the public!
Now let’s ask ourselves something here?
- Why is it NOT okay to ask where all the money is going, all the donations, all the paid subscriptions…..why is there no transparency? I was required to raise money every single show, and if I missed just one of those announcements on the LIVE shows, I heard all about it.
- You may ask why it took me over 5 weeks to report this to you.
- You may ask what I conclude.
I have only this to offer you.
For those of you who have walked through pain, for those of you are still in pain, this is for you.
I have testified to the truth of my experience. I was afraid to come forward with the truth for fear that my website and blog sites, Facebook and exterior social media sites, and You Tube Channels would get hacked. I wanted the truth to stay out there, and I did not want to risk it all going down in flames. My husband and I had one of the most sad holiday seasons with our sweet kitty Harley sick and dying, and he finally was put to sleep on December 26th, 2013. I died that day as my husband Steve crumbled right alongside of me. Our hearts were destroyed, it was the final straw and I personally soon fell into a deep depression. The year that I struggled through all of this chaos, deceit, assaults, abuse, attacks…..and now our sweet sick Harley’s passing, had now been the death of me. It kicked me in the gut so hard that I fell to the floor and stayed there.
I was numb, and in this void I accepted my own death, and left everything that I had worked so hard to achieve behind me. I cried for days, I purged my insanity on the phone with friends and family. I got so angry, sad, lost, and lonely inside of myself. I felt useless, passionless, floating in an abyss of nowhere land. I felt powerless, and the land of ‘hope’ had quickly become a mirage. The world in which I once knew was now beyond a matrix of lies; I felt I had been forever shackled to a prison wall, and left to die. But the life lines were there, the phone kept ringing, the love kept pouring in, the public kept praying, and then my world ended.
And then something miraculous happened. I came to realize that even though the storm of 2013 was the worst assault on my life I had ever experienced, somehow I was still here. Beat up and confused, but nevertheless, I was still here. I walked through the flames, only to emerge a better and more complete soul.
How the hell did this happen?
I share my story with you all in hopes of lending my inspiration and my knowing that we are all beings of light. We are all here to enjoy the fellowship of one another, and we are most definitely passed a tipping point of resolve, once and for all. We must stay together, walk, talk, pray and share ourselves with one another. Share your truth, use your voice, and inspire others to do the same.
Love is so important, love hurts but it also heals.
I will never be censored again.
I will not participate in ANY fund raisers for radio stations, donation platforms,websites, etc. ever again unless the money is transparent to the PUBLIC.
I will not broadcast at any radio station (internet or otherwise) if I have to raise money for them without transparency, including David Ickes THE PEOPLE’s VOICE.
***Please read host and alternative media journalist Sonia Poulton’s story, as she left TPV because of the same issues concerning lack of transparency due to possible misuse of donations.Read her statement here.http://soniapoulton.co.uk/page13.htm
Sonia Poultan begins by stating :
“I have been overwhelmed by the support I have received following my departure from The People’s Voice on Monday, January 6, 2014.
This is my statement of events.
During the brief period when I worked as a full-time journalist and presenter at The People’s Voice office in Wembley – every week day, sometimes 12 hours a day for the period from November 18th to January 6th – various volunteers and staff made alarming comments to me about the financial accounting at The People’s Voice.
I was told that public money had been ‘squandered’, ‘spent unwisely’ and ‘in an easy-come, easy-go manner’. I was informed that various pieces of equipment, including a handheld camera, had ‘gone missing’. It was alleged that money had been paid to someone who did not warrant being paid and who shared a property in Wembley with David – amongst other accusations.
Given these suspicions I was not happy with David Icke and Sean Adl-Tabatabai – TPV’s station manager – suggesting a second telethon on January 3, 2014. This was to raise more money for TPV following a two-week Christmas break from live programming.
I realised that the public, who had already donated far in excess of £300,000, was losing some goodwill towards TPV – and for a number of reasons.
I felt, as did other members of staff who said it to me – but did not have the courage to say it to David Icke directly – that all financial dealings should be public and transparent.
I believe, and conveyed this to David Icke, Sean ADL and Liz Roberts – in their respective roles as Station Manager and Production Manager – that all money paid out – including expenses and staff wages should be published monthly. This idea never progressed beyond the asking stage.
This, and other issues reached a head for me on Friday night when I was asked to take part in the telethon to raise money even though I didn’t know entirely where the previous public money had gone to.
I should add I refused point blank to take part in the first telethon in early November before the station had even launched. Not only was I unimpressed with some of the content of that telethon, as a representation of TPV, but I felt there was something wrong in asking the public for more money BEFORE they had seen even one programme.
So it was that I was not happy to do this latest telethon but I did it because I wanted TPV to succeed.
Despite my misgivings, I put my heart into it including organising a Question Time-style panel and a film recorded on New Year’s Eve about people who are doing important activism to make positive changes to our world.
I was, and remain, proud of this input – and output – and all the people involved in making this happen and all for only the petrol money to cover the filming. ” To continue reading, click here http://soniapoulton.co.uk/page13.htm
I will not volunteer my time to a radio station that has an abusive staff and a less than professional platform.
I will update you on where your donations and contributions to radio stations and organizations really goes?
Hint: The money does not go to the hosts and journalists.(I will report on this later.)
How many hosts were banned from the airwaves in 2013 alone? (I will follow up on this as well and give a descriptive and alarming report.)
Listen folks, I am still learning to crawl, and that’s okay. I will not tolerate injustice, liars and thieves and those demonic forces that have been having a hay day on planet earth. Together we are all bigger than that, we are unique, we have evolved, some quicker than others, but this does not concern me.
WE ARE ALL MASTERS in our own right peeps.
WE ARE STILL STANDING.
WE ARE MORE THAN JUST SURVIVORS.
WE ARE LIGHT. (ONLY light can expose the dark corners of the matrix.)
UPDATE PIECE to be released this week.
Now let’s talk about my shows with David Icke’s THE PEOPLE’s VOICE. What happened to my show with TPV that was to begin in November of 2013? What is going on with THE PEOPLE’s Voice? You are not going to like this; I will have the story up later today, so stay tuned. I want to thank journalist Sonia Poulton who has given me the courage to share my experience at TPV and for publicly coming forward with the same issues that I have had.
