Knife - a jack knife with scissors is useful, leave the machete at home unless you are hiking through the jungle
Lighter or matches - mentioned again because it’s a good idea to have a back up
Hygiene kit - toothbrush, powder (cornstarch and baking soda work well), soap (optional but appreciated by others), rubbing alcohol (to keep your feet happy and fungal free), etc…
Bandana and/or small camp towel
Nylon cord or thin rope – 30 to 50 feet for bear bagging, drying clothes and tying down tent
Water purification - filter or chemical treatment
Two water bottles - usually one liter each
Water Bag – 1 to 2 gallon capacity saves extra trips to the water source and needed for waterless stretches
Flashlight or headlamp - don’t get caught in the dark
Spare batteries - see above
Bug dope - Citronella or deet combo, for your summer sanity
First aid Kit - see pre-packaged kits for ideas, make sure to have moleskin and duct tape
Snake Bite Kit - optional placebo for your peace of mind. Use the Extractor not old fashioned razor style that do more harm than good
Repair kit – Duct tape, thread, needles, patches for tent and air mattress, etc…
Whistle - For emergencies only please
Sunscreen - for those days when the sun isn’t hiding behind the trees and the clouds
Maps, compass and guide books - just in case you get tired of following someone else’s trail
Options for some necessities for others:
Walking stick or two - for those of us who are balance impaired, also helps to save sore knees and ford streams
Camp shoes – light weight sandals or cheap sneakers, handy for around town and stream crossings
Earplugs – for shelter use. There is always one snorer in the crowd
Book - for the nights when those snorers keep you awake, field guides are also good to have
Camera - worth the weight.
Cell phone and radio – if you truly believe you need these gadgets to survive in the wilderness then take them but PLEASE do not subject others to the
noise of your fancy toys
On the trail I would occasionally run into weekenders who would show me their big knives or occasionally firearms and ask what I carried for protection. I would have to resist the urge to say "That's not a knife, now this is a knife" before pulling out my micro swiss army knife with a one inch blade and tiny scissors. I really never felt threatened while on the trail. I had my walking sticks to ward of snakes and dogs and didn't feel the need for much else. I carry a slightly bigger folding knife today and would consider carrying some pepper spray if I was to thruhike again, but I still feel a lot more threatened in town than I do in the woods. Most bad people are lazy and do not wander far from roads. That might change in a melt down situation so if walking to avoid danger I would certainly recommend better protection.
Backpacking stove - a few hardy souls survive without one
Pot - used for cooking and eating out of (no need for an extra dish), usually between one and two liters
Potholder - a bandana will do if you want to save an ounce
Lighter or matches - unless your good at rubbing sticks together
Spoon - no fork needed
Spices - your choice, I like adobo as a good all around spice mix
Vitamins - a helpful supplement on long treks
Food bags- filled to your own tastes, get rid of extra packaging by storing food in Ziplocs
When asked what I thought about most while hiking, the easy answer is always food. The average thruhiker burns between 4000-6000 calories per day. I could only carry about 3500 calories/day without my pack getting too heavy. This leaves thruhikers in a constant deficit and explains why all you can eat restaurants are so popular amongst the hikers. I once measured the calories I ate during a typical layover day in town. Breakfast, lunch dinner, and multiple snacks added up to 10,000 calories. By the middle of the trail I had lost 20lbs, including much of the muscle in my upper body.
The funny thing is that during the first couple weeks of a long distance trek, most people are not that hungry. Exertion, heat, change in diet and routine all add up to lack of appetite. You sometimes need to force yourself to eat enough. But once you burn through your fat reserve, hunger strikes with a vengeance and your body starts craving what you need. For instance, I was brought up in a very meat and potatoes family. But on the trail I started craving salads. I had also given up adding any salt to my food, but on the trail I found myself needing a lot more to replace what I was sweating away.
Low weight, high calorie foods are a must. Canned foods just do not have a good weight to calorie ratio. Pasta is probably the most carried, followed by instant rice dishes. The dehydrated backpacking diners are ok but pricey. Regular rice and beans take a long time to cook and require a lot of fuel. On an extended trip it is easy to get bored of the usual meals so variety is important.
As I said, on the AT I lost about 20lbs and was not that out of shape to begin with. Before the PCT I bought a dehydrator and had a much better variety of nutritious veggies, beans and meat. I was able to maintain my weight for most of that hike.
It is just about impossible to forage for food and hike a lot of miles in a day. Hunting and gathering is a full time job. If you need to get somewhere, do not count on being able to find much food along the way.
Footwear – comfortable, light and supportive boots (good running shoes are an option if you have sturdy ankles and a very light pack)
Rain jacket – Gore-Tex and similar materials are good for certain conditions but cheaper options usually work fine
Shorts or convertible pants - fast drying synthetic (non cotton usually nylon or polyester)
T-shirt - cotton or synthetic
Thermal underwear - synthetic tops and bottoms
Insulating layer - fleece jacket or wool sweater
Socks - wool, synthetic or a combination
Sock liners – optional, helps some people prevent blisters
Rain pants – lightweight non-coated nylon doubles in summer as bug pants
Hat and gloves – mountaintops can be chilly even in the summertime
Gaiters - usually low style helps keep pebbles and dirt out of boots
Good footwear is the key. Whether you chose boots or running shoes they need to fit and they need to be broken in. Nothing short of a broken bone, will slow you down more than improper footwear. Footwear also wears down over time. When I hiked the PCT I went through three pairs of light hiking boots. I fellow hiker went through 6 pairs of high quality running shoes. That was for 2600 miles of hiking. I ran into several folks who had pushed their shoes beyond their useful life and had ended up with stress fractures because of it.
Heavy boots last longer but I only know of a handful of folks who have made a whole long distance trail on one pair of boots. Heavy boots also require long periods to break in. You feet will break before your boots break in if you do not start off slow and steady. In a hot climate, full leather boots can give you heat blisters.
Properly fitting lightweight boots and running shoes are broken in out of the box. They also break down much quicker, as mentioned above.
Mid weight boots offer a good compromise.
For much of the Western US, I prefer breathable boots with a full length nylon shank. Kind of a cross between a lightweight and mid weight hiking boot. But these are very hard to find. In the winter I use mid weight leather boots for their water proofness on the snow.
Another issue, is that feet change as you hike. The hiker who went through six pairs of running shoes had his foot grow three sizes due to his arch falling from all those steps with a pack on. I have the advantage/disadvantage of flat feet, so my foot size barely changed.
Here are excerpts from an equipment list I made for a backpacking class. This list was intended to give folks a basic idea of the items needed for a spring to fall backcountry trip. Whether the trip is an overnight or a six-month journey the list remains basically the same. This is not a bug out bag list, though my BOB contains most all of these items. My BOB serves the dual purpose of a get me home bag and a stay out for a little while if I have to bag.
When thruhiking the goal is to carry as little weight as possible while still having what you need to be safe and comfortable. The latest thing in thruhiking is the ultralight craze. You carry so little that you are only comfortable when moving. If lost or injured and forced to stay still for awhile, ultralighters end up very uncomfortable. As with most things in life it is about balance.
One suggestion I will strongly make is to carry the lightest gear possible that will still do its job and hold up for a reasonable amount of time. It is up to you to decide which gear is right for your journey. But, the goal should be for your pack with food and water to weigh less than 1/3 of your body weight (closer to 1/4 is ideal).
Backpack - internal or external, generally between 4000 and 6000 cubic inches
Sleeping bag - down or synthetic usually rated between 15 to 25 degrees
Sleeping pad – self inflating air mattress or foam pad
Shelter - tent, bivy or tarp. Less than 4 lbs. of shelter weight per person is ideal.
Make sure you get the pack professionally fit. Most folks at outdoor gear stores do not know how to properly fit a pack. A comfortable pack will make a heavy load more bearable. A poorly fitting pack will make even light loads painful to carry. Look for someone who truly knows what they are doing. A good pack fitter will insist that you put a full load of weights in the pack and tell you to walk around the store for awhile to see how it really feels.
Many people here envision scenarios where they may be forced to put on a pack and take a long walk. Over the past decade and a half I have walked well over 20,000 miles with a pack on my back for both work and pleasure. I have also given lectures, advice and taught backpacking courses for hundreds of folks. So I thought I would start a thread where we can share tips and advice on long distance trekking.
Yes everyone here knows how to walk. But walking for 10, 20, 30 miles a day for days, weeks, months on end without running your body into the ground takes a certain amount of skill, the right gear, a little luck, and most importantly the right mindset.
When I hiked the AT in the mid 90s, it was estimated that only 1 out of every 10 people who started the trail made it all the way to the end. I saw people who quit on the approach trail before even making it to the start of the trail. These are folks who dreamed of doing this for years, even decades. Folks who took the brave first step of chasing their dream (something most folks never do). Yet despite their bravery they gave up when faced with their first obstacle.
Most of these folks who dropped out on the first day had no experience or real clue of what they were in for. But experience was not the deciding factor for success on the trail. The majority of experienced outdoors folks that I ran into on the early parts of the trail also ended up quitting in the weeks to months ahead.
I was certainly not experienced. I had read what I could and talked to a thruhiker from the 70s who gave me some good advice as well as some very outdated advice. But I had only been on a backpacking trip once in my life. I barely knew how to work my camp stove. My pack was way too heavy and fit me very poorly. I was sick for a month before I started and had not done any training. Yet I managed to stumble and bumble my way along the trail for over 2000 miles to the end.
I believe my success came partly from my inexperience. I was open to new ideas and incorporated new ideas that worked and quickly gave up equipment and hiking styles that did not. Due to early physical challenges (tendinitis in my knees and a sprained ankle) I learned to listen to my body and not push it beyond its limits. I was stubborn, refusing to quit on a bad day and not having any urge to do so on a good day. But mostly, I learned to muddle through the grind while keeping my senses and mind open to those fleetingly sublime moments that the universe presents you with on a daily basis.
Self knowledge and adaptability are keys to success in most endeavors. Long walking is no exception. But being in shape and having the right equipment is a big bonus. I will post my thruhiking equipment list and more thoughts as time allows.
Sounds and looks like it is high time to start accumulating a supply of various substances that have been shown to get the radionucleotides out of our bodies on a daily basis. And, there are quite a few such miracles that perform this function very well!!! Some of these supplements will become hard to acquire if the word gets out, and/or when the radiation levels get enough worse that even the MSM filtered data streams become worrisome to the average Joe. The sooner one gets the nearly unavoidable radioactive particles out of ones' body the better.
The first line of defense is to limit as much as is practical ones exposure to the radioactive material by using ion generators with collection plates that will collect the particles which then can be washed off and disposed of, HEPA air filtration units throughout your house, water filtration and bottled water, shower filters, leave shoes outside at the door and change to slippers, sandals, or indoors only shoes, and thoroughly wash all fruits and vegies, avoid fresh milk use powered milk with evaporated milk added to make it taste better. Older food, before Fuk incidents, may be at a premium in the future instead of the freshest food. Our storage food will be the safest going into the future. Canned tuna, sardines, mackerel packed in oil keeps a long time and will be suspect re: contamination in a few months so stock up if you haven't already. Protein that stores well should be stockpiled immediately, as much of our protein sources will eventually become contaminated. However, as careful as one will try to be some radioactive contamination will get inside our bodies, SO, we will need to know how to get it out....and how to get it out as quickly as is humanly possible!!!!! Below are some of the best ways to pull radioactive elements out. EDTA and DMAS were mentioned in a couple of my posts earlier in the thread, but these below are all natural and safer.
I’ve used Modifilan for a dozen years, personally and with clients, and it really works like a miracle in getting heavy metals out!!! Ten or twelve years ago, I spoke with a Russian Dr. who was the President of this new company that had developed, and started manufacturing a miraculous brown algae extract called Modifilan. He spoke to me passionately in broken English about this life saving supplement for half-an-hour or more. He told me how they had had amazing results in rehabilitating victims from Chernobyl with a brown seaweed extract they had discovered and developed over in Russia. Subsequently they’ve discovered that it also has amazing anti-cancer properties. I’ve bought many cases of this product over the years, and am almost out of my last case, so I’ll be ordering 2 or 3 cases tomorrow, especially in light of the nuke disaster in Japan.
Modifilan - a Brown Seaweed Extract concentrated at low temps, 90 capsules of 500 mg., a forty-to-one extract.
"One of the main qualities of Laminaria is its high content of alginates, which are enhanced by the extraction process used to produce MODIFILAN. Alginates are the most effective organic elements that enable the human body to get rid of heavy metals and toxins. Not all "algae" have alginates; blue or green algae does not. According to scientific testing, only this brown seaweed does! The unique methods of extraction, as well as the quality of this seaweed, are key. MODIFILAN has up to 50% of the highest quality alginates."
Best Price I know of: $23 each in lots of 12, $25 each for a lot of 6, $29 for 1 bottle through a wholesaler. Or, $32 from the manufacturer. Wholesaler: http://www.poseidonsharvest.com/modifilan/buy-modifilan.phpgclid=CJOejffxtqgCFQwFbAodeEoBDQ
Another tried and true heavy metal chelator, and detoxifier is sodium alginate ( a component of Modifilan naturally present in seaweed)
I’ve used this for over 20 years, it also works like a charm, and it is very inexpensive, yeah sodium alginate!!!
Sodium Alginate powder 1 pound = 454 grams = 908 servings of ¼ teaspoon = 300 days worth. Price = $24.95
Humifulvate- A natural, effective, and very safe heavy metal chelator, comparable to EDTA in effectiveness but safer, totally natural/ and plant sourced.
Humifulvate is a key component of Metal Shield, developed by Dr. Laszlo Meszaros, and sold by Swanson Health Products. $9.99 per bottle, 30 days supply. Metal Shield contains synergistic ingredients that enhance the effectiveness of the humifulvate.
I'll add more in another day or two.....but these are phenomenal, so get what you can while you can....and when the counts per minute are up like Mulder is getting exposed to, take them a couple of times per day, especially the sodium alginate powder which is cheap and easy to take.
Four cups of chopped rhubarb,
1 cup of fresh cicadas, washed and any hard parts removed
1 1/3 cups white sugar
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
9-inch double crust pie crust.
Now it's best to use females because they don't have those hollow sound chambers so they have more meat, as it were, to them.
And it's best to use newly hatched cicadas, which are called tenerals. Gather them early in the morning before they've had time to climb very high in the tree.
1. Heat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Combine sugar and flour. Sprinkle one-fourth of it over pastry in pie plate. Heap rhubarb over this mixture. Sprinkle cicadas in amongst the rhubarb. Sprinkle with remaining sugar and flour. Dot with small pieces of butter. Cover with top crust.
3. Place pie on lowest rack in oven. Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and continue baking for 40 to 45 minutes.
Put on the coffee, invite the neighbors and enjoy. :eating pie:
The Data Gap in the webbots reports are a period of time where the data gathering drops from 99% to virtually zero. The data gap starts in March 2012 and continues till May 2013. After May 2013 the data regains some data, approximately 1% of the data before the data gap.
Refer to previous reports at halfpasthuman.com and latest interviews including Kevin Smith show interview.
How Webbots work:
To try to understand the data gap you first need to understand what is the data that the webbots pick up.
The webbots work on the premise that everyone is psychic and psychic impressions leak out in our everyday work including impressions of the future. Such mechanisms include instinct.
Remember when you were at a traffic light and the walk sign was green, but for some reason you felt compelled not to cross the street. Then a moment later a truck goes flashing by and if you had not listened to your instinct, you would have been hit by the 60mph truck.
Instinct or psychic leaks come in different formats from feelings you feel, to words you use in either verbal or written format.
Imagine a cube farmer that blogs on facebook. For the last year he uses the word busy to signify how little time he has due to workload from work. Suddenly just this week instead of writing/saying "I am so busy at work, I can't make the movies tonight" he changes it to "I am so inundated with work, I can't make it to the carnival".
Why the sudden change from the word busy to the word inundated. Is the future leaking information about a flood in the future by subconsciously getting you to the change your word use from "busy" to "inundated"?
Shape 10 did not have much information on the data gap but correspondence with members of the Webbotforum members have discovered some new information.

Firstly, the data gap is actually a data drop as the small snippets (1%) of data past May 2013 were the artifact of programming errors and in Clif's words "it is not a gap so much as a winding down and stoppage."
Secondly, it is psychic leaks that drop in March 2012 and then stop in May 2013 and not the medium (like the internet).
So what is it?
1) Data drop starting March 2012 to May 2013 could be due to massive die off from various factors (sun, world war 3, etc)
2) Data drop starting March 2012 to May 2013 could be due to massive amnesia affect due to electromagnetic forces from the Sun or the centre of the galaxy or elsewhere.
Let's examine the amnesia affect from a theory by a member Alton:
As this part of the reports has developed over the the past couple of years it becomes more clear that death is NOT required to fulfill the linguistics.
In this latest report the first few pages lay out quite clearly the most probable, and to my mind the most likely cause of the data gap...it will be due to the wildly fluctuating and at times quite intense electrical and magnetic events that we will soon be experiencing from the sun and perhaps elsewhere in the cosmos.
As we approach this period of the data gap we are already starting to see the effects in the reports. Yes, there IS more immediacy data simply because we have already entered the on ramp for this trip down the cosmic highway and we are accelerating up to speed. Do notice though that there is much less data/information from the period known as the data gap. This will become more glaringly apparent as we progress through the summer and autumn and as Clif releases more and shorter reports (per HIS plan).
This has been discussed on previous iterations of this forum and continues to be mentioned on this forum. I'll bring it up again because it sets the context for understanding what we are facing.
The only clear and at commonly read account of this is in the Hebrew Torah (book of the law) and in the Christian Bible. In both it is found in the book of Genesis. At the tower of Babel (Gen. 11:1-ff) it is recorded that God did "confound" the language of humanity such that no one could communicate with another in the spoken language they previously shared. In the early to mid 20th century there were many experiments done on people (psychiatric patients) using electricity. One of the results of these experiments was that some of the patients lost the capacity to understand their previously known and spoken language. It was as if the knowledge of that language had been erased or deleted from their brains. Were humanity gathered in a central location and exposed to an electrical discharge from space it is reasonable to conclude a similar effect.
Looking at the most recent report and the one just released the data indicates such things will occur once again on the earth. Though in this current report there is more emphasis on the southern hemisphere this does NOT preclude such events from occurring in the northern hemisphere.
Such cosmic discharges will indeed have an effect on people. We can only speculate on the extent of those effects but we can be certain that such effects will literally stun some people instantly reducing them to drooling imbeciles. When the brain/mind is exposed to such levels of these energies we can also be certain that the "psychic component" of that particular human will also be disrupted. It is this disruption that will produce the data gap. If your mind is toast you won't even comprehend what is before your eyes let alone be able to contribute to humanity's "psychic network". Without such collective contributions then naturally a gap will open. Will deaths occur due to these events? Of course. The Grim Reaper doesn't take vacations regardless of what you've seen on "Family Guy". Will there be a mass death such as has been mentioned in the reports and discussed in these pages? It's quite doubtful. I have no doubt that the more physically and/or mentally frail will die from the shock and awe (NO pun intended) of the experience. But the mentally and physically healthy will endure and perhaps even fully recover over the course of time. But as far as a mass death of humanity (billions dead) from these events it is most unlikely. We've seen many videos on youtube where people were directly struck by lightning, some even twice, and they lived and retained their mental faculties.
It is also interesting to note that these electical/magnetic effects are seen at the root of much of what is in this latest report concerning both humanity and terra. The "strange fires", the dendritic ideograph, earth's toroid, multiple poles (called "bipolar" terra events in the report), terra intrusions and more are direct results of electrical/magnetic interactions between the earth/sun/cosmos.
I realize that some would like to connect these with the passage of comet Elenin but that comet will NOT be the cause of these things. Elenin may exacerbate them. Conversely, Elenin may serve to mitigate these effects. At this point it is simply unknown. What is known is that Elenin will also be subject to the same solar weirdness as we are. At this point all that I would expect is a spectacularly long tail lighting up our night sky for months. This tail will provide much ionized material to enhance visually the electrical effects from the sun. It may even serve as a sort of screen for holographic images such as those in the alleged "Project Blue Beam". If you can still think of it by that time, have your cameras ready as the universe should be presenting some "interesting" images in a sky near you.
It seems something big is about to affect our consciousness and ability to read psychic leaks. Whether there may be a mass die off or people suddenly become all telepathic or we are whizzed off into a new dimension....
Whatever it is, we are in for an interesting ride!!

webbot forum would like to now welcome you today
here in a gathering of mind's I's in spectacular array
retrieved as bot'd weavings to be [(laid out) clear as clay]
these psychic skeins unravel'd from what we, unbotted, say
a spot or two of deja woo to fill a well-lit pleasant stay
each strand is amazing, this complex tapestry display'd ...
Recently, on his blog (http://urbansurvival.com/week.htm ), George Ure said that other than his ranch and preps, in terms of his liquid assets, he is invested 50% PM's, and 50% Treasury Directs, this really surprised me, as I thought that he had said that he had 30% in TD's. Either way George is saying with his money that he is split down the middle on the question of inflation vs deflation!!! So, he is way more conservative than I am re: hedging against deflation risks.
I believe that TPTB/W are trying to accomplish the long, slow economic unwinding that Catherine Austin Fitts has been predicting for quite some time. As part of this strategy, they want people to borrow and spend in order to "create" more money, and thusly keep the economy sputtering along, and in the process, deplete the wealth of the middle class. This reckless spending, which they have been encouraging "we the sheeple" to participate in, is a short cut to that storm drain which leads to widespread personal bankruptcy. Although this may proceed as they have planned, there are so many moving parts, so many unknowns, so many big egos and potential double-crosses, not to mention Terra-intrusions, Sun-Disease phenomenon etc., etc. that it can fall apart at any given time. So, any mistake, or unforseen calamity, or more likely a combination or series of these, will likely totally upset their apple cart, and hopefully spoil all of their nefarious schemes, and then all of their GM-apples will roll down that storm drain.....leading to the demise of the dollar, which is just another way of achieving hyperinflation and a rapid collapse into economic oblivion, and their nearly complete loss of control from that point on.
But, beware the slow unwind which they are working feverishly to maintain....a slow-motion nightmare......foreshadowing the issuing in of an unprecedented 1984-esque style of government control over our lives (including all of the high tech tweaks available now, things that George Orwell couldn't even imagine, all of which are in place to further the innumerable control levers now in the hands of TPTB/W). Let's hope and pray that they can't hold it all together, and that renewed freedom is our reward at the end of the tunnel we are entering.
Below is evidence pointing towards further deflationary movement within the currently camoflagued depression they have been calling a recession. This continuing deflation seems to be the result of the failure of their QE2 "effort" (real, or faked?) to reflate the shrinking M3 money supply. Since QE2 was entirely inadequate to stimulate the economy and get inflation ramped-up, and since the BIG BANKS were paid to keep their "stimulus money" out of circulation, placed in 'Excess Reserves' accounts, rather than being invested in businesses, infrastructure, technology etc., one can reasonably assume that TPTB/W don't want hyperinflation, but rather the slow unwinding of the American Empire along a path leading to the OWG/NWO with a single electronic currency worldwide. America represented and still represents a big hurdle to TPTB/W in terms of achieving that centuries long goal....and that wild mustang had to be broken before it could be walked down that one-way path to total slavery!!! Let's get the saddle off of our backs (Central Bankers/ Fiat currency)!!!
In this sick economic system, which our Keynesian overlords have foisted upon us, money is defined as debt....and this debt-money amalgam is created and/or printed by the Federal Reserve Bank as debt insturments. QE2 has thus far not created the big rise in M3 money supply that would create actual inflation. Real Estate keeps drifting lower, banks aren't lending, and most of the money creation is sitting on the sidelines of the economy, and is not stimulating an actual recovery. States and municipalities, and their bonds are circling that same drain leading to complete insolvency. Fiat ponzi banking plus insane leveraging, plus C.D.S.'s and derivative madness has allowed the charade to go on and on, BUT the piper must be paid, and the Black Swan must swoop out of the skies one of these days.
Whether we will suffer Hyperinflation or Deflation are still a question mark, either way we will suffer!!! The better ones preps, the less the suffering will be. The size of QE3, if it even happens, will likely be the defining moment revealing the truth as to whether TPTB/W really wants massive inflation, or just more slow motion falling into total collapse over the next ten years or so. That would be their ideal scenario!!!
A heavy anchor keeping the economy from inflating is Real Estate, and RE experienced a huge drop in February, bad news for Bernancke!!!??? See quote from article re: sinking RE values, link: http://www.cnbc.com/id/42192395
The full, although very long analysis of Russel Napier can be found at: http://www.scribd.com/doc/51152903/Napier-QE2-Failure
How long can the Federal Reserve keep interest rates at the current insanely low rates??? Without these low interest rates, the deficits of the Treasury/ US Govt. are totally unsupportable, the game is over, and the dollar will lose whatever support it has had in the International marketplace. This is one of the many wildcards currently in play, and something to be on the lookout for. PIMCO's actions recently of unloading their huge Treasury inventory seems to be pointing towards interest rate increases becoming a huge issue in the near future. Got preps? Got PM's? Got lead and brass to keep your preps and PM's? If not all 3 categories, get 'em soon!!! Either wayinflation or deflation, these are the REAL "winning" (as in Charlie Sheen, LOL) "investments"!!! To the moon Alice, and a mighty Hi-Ho Silver.
Welcome! This is the front page of the WebbotForum. What is the WebbotForum? This is where the members discuss all things related to the webbot reports. The webbot reports are generated by the webbot project. This project is not connected to this forum. We merely discuss what the webbot project puts out.
What are the webbot reports? Grab your coffee as this may take a moment or two.
The bot project is premised on the idea that people are at some level psychic. This element of human precognition has long been quite nebulous. It has successfully eluded attempts by scientists and others to capture, study and use it for whatever purposes. The webbot project does not exist to prove whether or not this psychic ability exists. Instead it works to find this information of the future that is "leaked out" in daily human commuications. This is done through Asymetric Linguistic Trend Analysis (ALTA).
The webbot reports are based upon Asymetric Linguistic Trend Analysis. On the internet and world wide web people communicate with words in a setting called a forum. There are many fora on the web. These many fora are based on thousands of interests like making bread, gardening, Ford trucks, any of the musical instruments and so on. People gather in these fora to discuss the central topic of interest as well as anything else that may be on their minds in general or at the moment.
On the web there are little programs referred to variously as spiders or bots. These programs crawl around the web looking for all kinds of data. Google uses these to build their search engine. Their bots crawl around the web picking up URLs (links) and what is at that URL. With this data Google takes this data and converts it to information that people use every day to find that information on the web.
The webbot project does pretty much the same thing but the bot programs are searching very specific places (fora) for very specific words. These words form the "lexicon" used by the bot project. These words have specific definitions and people use these words to convey whatever it is they are thinking and feeling. It is this feeling aspect that provides the emotional component which is what the webbots gather. When the bots have picked up all they can carry they head back "home" and drop off all they picked up. These words are then dumped into a hopper (another program) to be sorted, sifted and, most importantly, compared to previous usages. It is in these changes where the trend analysis occurs. By the application of multiple algorithms in the program on these changes in usage that the webbot project is able to distill out information of future events. It is this information that is presented in the webbot reports. These webbot reports are available from http://www.halfpasthuman.com. each report costs $10 US. Past reports are also available there.
The Webbot Forum is a closed forum. Membership is available by personal recommendation or by direct request to the forum administrator. It is highly recommended that you already have read at least one webbot report or better yet that you are a subscriber to the bot reports. We do not really discuss nor debate the premise or process of how the bot reports are generated. Rather, we discuss the predictions in the reports and mark the events as they occur as well as directly and indirectly related topics and events.
Members have a very diverse range of backgrounds, professions and beliefs. Despite this broad diversity the members remain focused on the bot project. The many and varied backgrounds are immensely valuable in providing many different perspectives on the predictions in the bot reports and the fulfilment of the predictions.
Your membership is encouraged and should you choose to participate we look forward to your unique perspective!
Reports about two suns fill internet articles and blogs while videos are posted on youtube showing two sunsets or two orbs in the sky that look like two suns. Reports come from many different countries. Sun dogs? Possibly? Planet X or the Destroyer? Maybe.
Unfortunately an answer in the fives sense worlds does not add up. Why:
1) If a second sun was nearing earth, such a body should be causing gravitational influences on the earth and other nearby planets?
2) A second sun doesn't just appear and disappear and make u-turns. It has an orbit and hence if people in Holland and China and Sri Lanka are indeed seeing the second sun, then logically they should be seeing it everyday. Manipulating film is one thing, but manipulating people going out into their backyards and viewing the sunset is another.
3) Finally how can only some people in one country see it and other people in other countries not see it?
It defies logic.
But there is another explanation, a woo woo explanation.
Dolores Canon is a past-life regressionist and hypnotherapist who specialises in the recovery of “lost knowledge” to facilitate healing and closure. In her books, The Convoluted Universe she explains that humanity is at a period of unprecedented evolutionary shift. It is this time on earth now that will require each of us to make an important choice: move into a new reality of consciousness or remain in a world of increasing trauma and drama. Two earths. The old earth and the new earth.
Dolores shares her insights into the evolution to the New Earth in this extract from The Convoluted Universe Volume III.
“The Earth is a living being that is crying out to be saved. It is trying to rid itself of the invaders by cleansing itself: floods, tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions. They are all cries for help. It is as though the Earth is ridding itself of its own karma before it reincarnates into another existence. A pristine, beautiful, perfect new environment where it can start anew, taking along with it those who are capable of adjusting to the new vibrations and frequencies, to create a new world. The old world is headed for destruction. However it cannot be total physical destruction of the planet itself, because that would cause disruption in the vibratory field of other planetary bodies and dimensions in the universe. So the Earth has chosen to split off into two worlds, leaving those who want to continue to live in fear and violence to continue on the „old‟ Earth. And creating a „new‟ home environment for those who want to progress and evolve. The two types can no longer live side by side on the same planet. Things have changed too much. So the vibration and frequency has to be changed."
If this is indeed true, and we are in a transition between worlds, could it be possible that during this transitionary phase, during this evolutionary shift for both mankind and the earth, people are indeed seeing the veils of the new world open up? As in the movie LadyHawke, during that period between day and night, twilight is where we can glimpse both worlds simultaneously. It is here where the new world is born and it may be why people are seeing two suns on one day, and not on another day.
Is the new world as envisioned by Dolores Cannon in the process of birth?
On August 1, 2010 the Sun erupted with a Solar Tsunami, something scientists had observed but did not believe prior. The Tsunami was caused by a C3 Solar Flare and accompanying Solar Filament Eruption.
NASA's SDO (Solar Dynamics Observatory) captured the event in High Definition.
February 22, 2010 SpaceWeather.com reported one of the Largest Filaments ever observed by scientists. NASA's new satellite, SDO (Solar Dynamics Observatory), captured HD images of the filament as it rotated into view.
The filament was estimated to be one million kilometers long, one of the longest ever observed.
