Uncontacted Tribes Facing Extinction in Massive Amazonian Forest Fires

Alex Pietrowski, Staff Writer
Waking Times

Already facing extinction from illegal logging, deforestation, the invasion of oil companies and colonization, uncontacted members of the Awá tribe living for centuries on the edge Brazil’s Amazon are now facing another serious threat to their survival as uncontrollable forest fires devour thousands of acres of pre-Amazon forest in their area.

It is believed that there are less than 80 members left of the Awá, and without immediate international support to stop these fires and to control illegal logging in the Amazon, they certainly face total destruction within coming years, if not sooner, an all too predictable fate.

Research Proves Raw Milk Prevents Infections and Boosts Immunity

Alex Pietrowski, Staff Writer
Waking Times

In 1948 Michigan became the first state to require all milk sold to consumers to first be pasteurized, thus beginning the war on raw milk. The national effort to prevent people from obtaining raw milk has become so absurd that state and local governments around the country are willing to sick S.W.A.T teams on U.S. citizens to protect us from the potential harm in consuming raw milk which has been a dietary staple for generations.

The ostensible premise for such militant enforcement of food law is of course public safety, as authorities say that certain manufacturing processes do not prevent the bacterial contamination of milk, and the government now claims that raw milk is too dangerous for human consumption even though it is entirely possible to produce it without contaminating it.

Advocates of the consumption and free sale of raw milk describe pasteurization as a process that destroys the real nutritional benefits of milk in an effort to prevent the risk of contamination.

The Mysterious Link Between Planets and Metals

Is there any civilisation before us who hasn’t felt this at their core? Peoples before us had such reverence for the celestial objects, they saw their gods in the planets. In a search for meaning, they turned to the sky. They believed the planets of our solar system have significant power over their destinies.

The word planet has its roots in the Greek word planētēs, meaning “wanderer”, because certain celestial objects moved across the sky relative to the fixed stars. They called these objects asteres planetai – wandering stars. There were 7 classical planets that they could observe with the naked eye: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn.

During the times of Ancient history, there were 7 important metals which humans had identified and widely used. These are gold, silver, mercury, copper, iron, led, and tin. Although several other elements were known in certain ancient cultures, like zinc, arsenic, or antimony, they did´t have such widespread use and importance.

Direct Democracy: An Empowering Solution to the Fake Left-Right Paradigm

Makia Freeman, Contributor
Waking Times

Direct democracy is an empowering social and political solution that we need to seriously consider, in the face of a corrupt and broken system that churns out tyrants and maintains the status quo. It’s clear that we need a new system and a new consciousness, not a new president. Every time election year rolls around in the US (and in other nations), the dysfunctionality of the current system is shoved in our faces. In 2016 we have the choice between anointed establishment candidate Hillary Clinton (of the longtime Clinton crime family) and Donald Trump, ardent Zionistprobable pedophile and NWO-connected businessman.

Tesla’s Anti-Gravity Research in Use in Dozens of Secretive Military Projects

Waking Times

Doctor Richard Boylan, and numerous others have already let the cat out of the bag when it comes to anti-gravity space flight, so why do Boeing and Lockheed, two of America’s largest military industrial contractors, and the recipient of trillions in tax payer ‘black budget’ dollars still hide that they are operating at least 12 anti-gravity aerospace platforms?

Indigenous Tribes Just Lost the ‘Biggest Environmental Case in the World’

Christina Sarich, Staff Writer
Waking Times

A court debacle labelled the ‘biggest environmental case in the world’ just sided with Big Oil. A New York Federal Appeals Court has ruled that Ecuadoreans who were concerned over the health of their rainforest after a 23-year battle with the Chevron subsidiary, Texaco, for polluting vast swaths of Lago Agrio in the Ecuadorian jungle, cannot hold the company financially culpable.

The Disappearance of Silence

Silence

Edward Curtin, Guest
Waking Times

Silence is a word pregnant with multiple meanings: for many a threat; for others a nostalgic evocation of a time rendered obsolete by technology; for others a sentence to boredom; and for some, devotees of the ancient arts of contemplation, reading, and writing, a word of profound, even sacred importance.

But silence, like so much else in the present world, including human beings, is on the endangered species list.  Another rare bird – let’s call it the holy spirit of true thought – is slowly disappearing from our midst.  The poison of noise and busyness is polluting more than we think, but surely our ability to think.

4 Ways to Defy the Forces of Tyranny and Affirm the Forces of Freedom - Waking Times

Gary ‘Z’ McGee, Staff Writer
Waking Times

“Something has ended. Everyone can feel it. It is a sort of interregnum. A miserable lull, backlit everywhere by the sense of declension and fires flaring across the planetary terrain of struggle.” ~ Joshua Clover

During this time of troubled transition, we need those with unprecedented ambition and creative resolve to step up to the plate of a new way of being human in the world. We need those with the ability, and the audacity, to recondition the conditioned helplessness that was drilled into them by state indoctrination to stand up and teach us how to do the same. We need them to blaze up like beacons of hope for the hopeless majority, to reveal how their creative fire cannot be dulled by the cold, steel hand of the state.

Consciousness is Rising, Even in the Animal Kingdom

Christina Sarich, Staff Writer
Waking Times

Human beings were first indisputably known to use tools in Africa more than 2.5 million years ago, a sign of elevated consciousness. Tool using is heralded as a crucial step in the development of our species. Now, in this time of huge energy influxes into the Universe, we see even animals developing a more refined consciousness.

Julian Huxley, a luminary of biology, believed the evolutionary arrival of humans was so profound an event in Earth’s history that he designated the geological period when it occurred the “Psychozoic Era”. We see ourselves as unique in the natural world, sometimes forgetting there are other sentient creatures who are on a path to greater consciousness as well.
