In the Wave by Walter Russell



Outsider scientific-mystic Walter Russell developed a lifelong philosophy based on the unifying principles of forces within the cosmos – what seems like a kind of pseudo-scientifically framed offshoot of non-dualism. The most interesting elements his work are the diagrams and charts illustrating his books. They document an idiosyncratic understanding of natural phenomena such as light, magnetism, thermodynamics, waves and vibration.

Esa Ruoho has collected together many illustrations from Russell’s key works in Flickr sets – images from the books The Secret of Light, The Universal One and Atomic Suicide. The ‘In the Wave’ set contains charts with painted colour spectra and elliptical prismatic shapes denoting light waves, electrical vibrations and magnetism.

A strong theme running through Russell’s schematics, especially evident in his ‘Home Study Course’ is the correspondences of geometric equivalences and orders. The charts resemble sets of musical scales, denoting frameworks of periodicity and harmony within particular natural systems. Many of the diagrams, at first glance, might easily be be misinterpreted as modern musical notation…

…It might just be the case that Walter Russell’s genius, and his diagrams, can only be decoded at a later moment in time. His friend Nikola Tesla had advised him to lock away his work in a safe for 1000 years – because humankind was not yet mature enough for it.

Babelcast: Critical Intelligence Gap


The babelcast-mosaic is an algorithmic, computer-generated podcast series created from fragmented and distorted sounds of U.S. and World leaders. Juxtaposed and mixed with dynamic noise textures, the resulting ambient soundscape offers a unique musical perspective on mass media, language, and current events. This enhanced version adds algorithmically selected and manipulated still images. Each edition is built exclusively from sounds and images harvested within a defined period of days.

Critical Gap In In telligence:  

It depends on what your definition of Isis...

Marduk, Murdak, Murdoch

Etemenanki (Sumerian: “temple of the foundation of heaven and earth”) was the name of a ziggurat dedicated to Marduk in the city of Babylon. It was famously rebuilt by the 6th century BC Neo-Babylonian dynasty rulers Nabopolassar and Nebuchadnezzar II. According to modern scholars such as Stephen L. Harris, the biblical story of the Tower of Babel was likely influenced by Etemenanki during the Babylonian captivity of the Hebrews.

Nebuchadnezzar wrote that the original tower had been built in antiquity: “A former king built the Temple of the Seven Lights of the Earth, but he did not complete its head. Since a remote time, people had abandoned it, without order expressing their words. Since that time earthquakes and lightning had dispersed its sun-dried clay; the bricks of the casing had split, and the earth of the interior had been scattered in heaps.”

The Greek historian Herodotus (440 BC) later wrote of this ziggurat, which he called the “Temple of Zeus Belus”, giving an account of its vast dimensions.

The already decayed Great Ziggurat of Babylon was finally destroyed by Alexander the Great in an attempt to rebuild it. He managed to move the tiles of the tower to another location, but his death stopped the reconstruction. Since then only the base remains, but it is visible from Google Earth, which places its location at 32.5362583°N 44.4208252°E just south of Baghdad.

The Mad Prophet of the Airwaves

“Network” (1976) Howard Beale – The ‘Mad Prophet of the Airwaves’ speech
delivered by Peter Finch


Edward George Ruddy died today! Edward George Ruddy was the Chairman of the
Board of the Union Broadcasting Systems and he died at eleven o’clock this
morning of a heart condition! And woe is us! We’re in a lot of

So, a rich little man with white hair died. What does that got
to do with the price of rice, right? And why is that woe to us?

you people and 62 million other Americans are listening to me right

Because less than 3 percent of you people read books.

less than 15 percent of you read newspapers.

Because the only truth you
know is what you get over this tube.

Right now, there is a whole, an
entire generation that never knew anything that didn’t come out of this

This tube is the gospel, the ultimate

This tube can make or break presidents, popes, prime

This tube is
the most awesome goddamn force in the whole godless world.

woe is us if it ever falls into the hands of the wrong people.

And that’s
why woe is us that Edward George Ruddy died.

Because this company is now
in the hands of CCA — the Communication Corporation of America. There’s a new
Chairman of the Board, a man called Frank Hackett, sitting in Mr. Ruddy’s office
on the 20th floor. And when the 12th largest company in the world controls the
most awesome goddamn propaganda force in the whole godless world, who knows what
shit will be peddled for truth on this network.

So, you listen to me.
Listen to me!

Television is not the truth. Television’s a goddamn
amusement park. Television is a circus, a carnival, a traveling troupe of
acrobats, storytellers, dancers, singers, jugglers, sideshow freaks, lion
tamers, and football players.

We’re in the boredom-killing

So if you want the Truth, go to God.

Go to your

Go to yourselves!

Because that’s the only place you’re ever
gonna find any real truth.

But, man, you’re never gonna get any truth
from us. We’ll tell you anything you wanna hear. We lie like hell. We’ll tell
you that Kojak always gets the killer and that nobody ever gets cancer at Archie
Bunker’s house. And no matter how much trouble the hero is in, don’t worry. Just
look at your watch. At the end of the hour, he’s gonna win. We’ll tell you any
shit you want to hear.

We deal in illusions, man. None of it is

But you people sit there, day after day, night after night — all
ages, colors, creeds.

We’re all you know!

You’re beginning
to believe the illusions we’re spinning here!

You’re beginning to think
that the tube is reality and that your own lives are unreal.

You do
whatever the tube tells you —

You dress like the tube.

You eat
like the tube.

You raise your children like the tube.

You even
think like the tube.

This is mass madness, you maniacs!

In God’s
name, you people are the real thing.

We are the illusion!

So turn
off your television sets. Turn them off now! Turn them off right now! Turn them
off and leave them off. Turn them off right in the middle of this sentence I’m
speaking to you now.
